Chapter 517: Relic Demon Pill
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
“They probably escaped already!”
On the small uninhabited island, the people who were on it were already fewer.
At that moment, it was Fangming who spoke.
“Just now when he walked out from the Dragon Hall, it felt like the golden shuttle in his hand had some kind of history. Now that I think about it, it was definitely the Grand Demon God Shuttle! Legend has it that it could travel a thousand miles in an instant and even cross worlds! It really is extraordinary.”
The person who said this was Luoming, his expression was ashen-white.
Beside him, there was one more person who was wearing the dress of the Daoming Sect. A 40-odd-year-old middle-aged man. His face contorted into an ugly expression.
“Then… What do we do now? That person has the Grand Demon God Shuttle, we probably won’t be able to catch up no matter what…”
“Hah! Cultivator Qiuli, are you afraid? Are you planning to give up just like this?”
Luoming wasn’t in a good mood due to the recent events that transpired, at this moment, his lips were filled with disdain. “Are you afraid of the Dragon Shadow Old Man?”
Qiuli’s aura halted, following after, he scoffed. “Our Daoming Sect won’t let the death of senior brother Cangming go so easily. It is only this person was lucky enough to have the god shuttle with him. Just now, he was able to go up against our grade-9 spells and come out unharmed instead of fighting against all of us. Do you think we can stop him?”
He was indeed a little afraid, but this was also only because Cangming was the one who attacked.
If it was just that Zong Shou, then he was just a small monster king, they wouldn’t care and give him face. However, behind him stood the Dragon Shadow.
This person’s reputation preceded him, it was said that even End Realm experts would avoid him at his peak, so how could they not fear at what would happen?
Although it wasn’t much to work with the Demon Sect, but if others would find out, it would become inconvenient.
Fangming also seemed to know what he was thinking about, he smiled as he tried to persuade him with his words. “We understand Brother Luo! Actually, cultivator Qiuli is quite helpless. With Zong Shou using the shuttle, we can’t trap him. Why don’t we try to search the nearby area? If we still can’t find him then let’s just temporarily give up. However, do remember that we just need to wait for 2 months and he would still fall into our arms!”
Qiuli smiled when he heard this, following after, he nodded his head. “That’s true! War is impending in Donglin Cloud Continent. Based on what I know, the Thousand City Alliance will attack within 2 months. If this person dies in our hands, then the Dragon Shadow won’t stop at anything to avenge him. However, if he dies on the battlefield, the Dragon Shadow won’t be able to say anything. Even if he wants to take revenge then, with the Lingyun Sect and along with many other sects working together, we aren’t afraid of him!”
Despite all this, Luoming’s brows were still tightly furrowed, it seemed that he was unwilling to give up.
However, he knew that he couldn’t go too far. The Daoming Sect was after all not the subject of the Yuanshi Demon Sect.
For this Mister Fangming to help him was also because he probably had his own agenda.
If Zong Shou wanted to escape and hide away, then he could easily go invisible and hide his tracks, it was indeed really difficult to find that person.
If only he didn’t take that Dark Demon Relic…
At this moment, Fangming spoke out once more.”Don’t worry Brother Luo. In this world, there are just a few people who know how to use the Darkness Demon Relic. If it were other people, it would be useless even if they got it. You only need to wait another 2 months. If you are willing to help the Lingyun Sect, then they would be delighted. Who else would dare to snatch that relic? Don’t worry.”
When Luoming heard this, he couldn’t help but smile. Qiuli also heaved a sigh of relief, his mood relaxed, he temporarily put down the hatred from the death of Cangming.
“It’s quite funny talking about it! Do you know that the Kongqi Sect leaned towards Gantian Mountain! This sect is so despicable! In just 2 years, they crafted hundreds of thousands of armor and weapons for that kid. They also helped him purchase millions of them! That old man Tianqi… I really don’t know if he’s still senile. Did he really think this kind of news wouldn’t spread out? 2 million spiritual artifacts, what a trump card! Did he really think that small unparalleled general Zong Yuan can’t be beaten? Hehehe… In just 2 months, all the hard work he has done will be wasted, let’s see how he tries to clean it up!”
Luoming smiled and laughed coldly. However, Fangming knew what he was doing behind his words, he wasn’t mocking the Konqi Sect but was trying to make the both of their sects act towards Kongqi Sect.
He shook his head. “He indeed failed his role! However, we need to plan for the long run! We can’t be careless. The Kongqi Sect must have their reasons that made them dare do this! It’s best if we are more careful…”
While speaking, he was still sensing the area, he suddenly found a bit of a True Dragon’s Aura.
… The Destruction Dragon Pellet, he really took that thing out!
Half a day later, 9,700 miles to the west, on a Cloud Island. A light suddenly descended and landed on a small hill.
When the flying shuttle was kept, he looked at the item in his hand with surprise.
This wasn’t a normal grade-2 magical treasure. To be able to resist so many spells and still remain unscathed… Ye Feishuang even mentioned that this item was still lacking a few parts, who knows what would happen after they were all gathered up?
Ye Feishuang’s eyes lit up as she scoffed. “I thought Your Highness had some skill, however, in the end, you still fled!”
Zong Shou shook his head while saying seriously, “This isn’t fleeing! It’s called ‘taking a step back to attack another time, to avoid their sharpness’. What do you know?”
Ye Feishuang was startled, following which, she burst out into laughter, thinking to herself that Zong Shou really cared about his face. He obviously escaped but he purposely thought of another word to try and explain his actions.
Zong Shou smiled as he looked beneath the mountain. This place was really wide, it wasn’t far away from Donglin Cloud Continent. Below, there was actually a city along with the wilderness around, there were probably around a million people.
“Do you remember the few Yuanshi Demon Sect disciples that I injured? Within the Dragon Hall, they probably suffered heavy losses.”
Ye Feishuang’s brows rose up, she naturally knew about this, but what did that have to do with them escaping to this place?
Following after, Zong Shou grinned. “This place is the most secluded location nearest to the Third Dragon Hall with the highest population. Where do you think will they choose to recover their injuries and consumptions from the trials?”
Ye Feishuang was shocked, she knew that the spells of the Demon Sect were really strong, they were mostly far above normal spells. However, they would need living spirit souls and blood. After all, the amount they could carry was limited and couldn’t be easily replenished. They would definitely need to find a place to refill their storage.
Daoming Sect, after all, was still a righteous sect, even if they worked together with the Yuanshi demon Sect, it wouldn’t be good for them to work together for such a matter.
Even Ye Feihan understood what they were talking about. Her eyes were filled with respect and worship. It was like she was saying ‘Little Brother Shou! You’re really amazing!’.
Ruoshui and Zong Yuan’s eyes were cold.
“You’re going to break through them one by one?”
Ye Feishuang thought about it, however, in the end, she couldn’t help but mock him. “You’re really planning to go all out against Yuanshi Demon Sect? Even if you want to slay the tiger, be careful that it doesn’t eat you.”
Zong Shou burst out into laughter. “When has my Common People’s Path and the Yuanshi demon Sect stopped fighting? As for the dangers, I already naturally know!”
He was too lazy to deal with the girl any further and started to prepare.
The Yuanshi Demon Sect’s spiritual senses were sharp and sensitive, taking this into account, he couldn’t hope to set up a large scale spiritual formation. He could only hang the 365 needles above the city.
He then placed several high-grade illusionary element beast crystals within, these covered the tracks of the silver needles.
In the last life, he had some attainments in formations, just a bit until the Heaven Realm stage. But because of the Sky Fox Illusionary Element Bloodline, his understanding toward illusions were even deeper than before.
Even if they did notice the needles and formations, it still wouldn’t be a problem. They could just have a proper battle.
Next, it would be the seven-star spell altar. Zong Shou placed it beneath the ground where a spiritual vein was hidden in.
He arranged a large scale illusionary formation without spending much to hide the true position of the spell formation.
It also had protective abilities. Zong Shou estimated that it would at least take above 20 grade-9 spells for it to break.
Ye Feishuang’s mouth was agape when she saw Zong Shou preparing. Her mother was known for having many treasures and for being really rich.
However, she wouldn’t be willing to spend it just like Zong Shou.
After looking at the spiritual formation, it wasn’t all that exquisite. However, the number of beast crystals used were abundant.
Originally, she didn’t have high hopes. But at this moment, she felt that he had at least a 60% chance of winning.
She was also surprised that this fellow actually had such deep hatred towards the Yuanshi Demon Sect.
She really didn’t understand why Zong Shou would spend so much money to kill Luoming. Moreover, it wasn’t okay for her to ask such questions too.
She also knew that even if she asked, this fellow wouldn’t reply.
Ye Feishuan silently waited. Zong Shou probably predicted that the Yuanshi Demon Sect wouldn’t easily give up their search.
To reach this place, it would at least take around 2 days. Following shortly after, he took out the Darkness Demon Relic.
Inside was the seven-star spell altar, outside was the illusionary formation. He didn’t need to be afraid that the aura would leak out.
Taoists and God Beasts both formed pills. Buddhists and some Demon Sects formed relics which were the essence of their entire life.
However, in Zong Shou’s hand, it wasn’t something that came from a person in the Evil Demon’s Path, but it was from a living spirit known as a Darkness Demon. It was a natural demon.
“Peak Spirit Realm?”
After recognizing the grade of the relic, Zong Shou thought deeply.
He hesitated for a moment before he tightly grabbed the relic.
His heaven swallowing energy conversion technique had changed to the black and white holes. It would swallow everything, after a single breath, several bits of pure essence energy were absorbed out.
The moment he swallowed it, he started to purify and improve the energy, he would then expel them out through the white hole dharma or he would directly brine it.
The main problem was the Demonic Aura and Demonic Thoughts on the relic.
However, moments later when the true energy was purified to the extreme, Zong Shou’s brows were tightly furrowed. He could still feel an intent hidden within.
No matter how hard he tried, he was unable to get rid of it.
“As expected! I still lack that thing…”
Zong Shou opened his eyes and looked towards the east.
There weren’t many people who knew how to use relics but he was coincidentally one of them.
Since Luoming was searching for it, he most probably had already found that key item.
As expected, he still needed to claim his life!
After he thought of this, Zong Shou didn’t stop absorbing the relic, instead, he picked up his speed and crazily continued swallowing and absorbing.
He used the vast Essence energy to start to transform the fire and water spiral energies in his body.
