AST 1082 –Five Elements Water Jiao King, Tantai Xuan's World Cleansing Demonic Lotus
"Do you know how strong the Five Elements Water Jiao King roughly is?"
"It shouldn't exceed 800,000 stars. It's just that the Ten Thousand Years Demonic Lotus is in the middle of a huge lake. Even though it's known as a lake, it can be considered an inner sea. The strength of the Five Elements Water Jiao King seems to be even stronger in water…" Tantai Xuan looked at Qing Shui as she spoke slowly. I looked like she was watching Qing Shui's expression.
Qing Shui wasn't surprised when he heard Tantai Xuan's words. It's just as strong as the Earth Jiao that he had met outside. The two demonic beasts should more or less be at the same grade.
Qing Shui knew that dealing with demonic beasts at this level shouldn't be a problem for him. Perhaps it was due to his advancement in strength, but he seemed to be quite fond of fighting lately. Furthermore, he had her portrait hung within the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. Qing Shui really wanted to help her. Naturally, he couldn't deny that she was beautiful either.
It was the same in his previous life. When looking for jobs, regardless of male or female, those with better physical appearances would often have the upper hand. It wasn't out of selfishness. Rather, beautiful things would give rise to a joyful frame of mind. It was just intuitive for someone with such abilities to think of misusing it.
Qing Shui wasn't really close to the Tantai Clan. Even though the old grandpa from the Tantai Clan was really friendly when Qing Shui talked with him, he knew that this was just a result of his performance at that time.
The main reason why Qing Shui wanted to help her was because of the portrait. When someone you often saw in a portrait appeared before you one day, you would have a sense of familiarity or even a feeling of intimacy with them for no reason.
Qing Shui didn't respond. He remained silent as his mind wandered as he appeared to be thinking about something. All of these were seen by Tantai Xuan. She thought about how she was used to solitude and had never sought help from anyone, let alone this person who she had forgotten. Furthermore, she took Qing Shui's contemplation as fear. After all, she didn't believe that Qing Shui could beat the Five Elements Water Jiao King.
"You should leave first, it's quite dangerous. There is no reason for you to take such risks. I'll give it another try." Tantai Xuan continued. She wasn't used to remaining silent especially with such a young man.
"What benefit can I get by helping you?" Qing Shui suddenly raised his head and asked Tantai Xuan.
Upon hearing Qing Shui's question, Tantai Xuan's beautiful eyes looked towards Qing Shui as if she was trying to see through him. She replied," Mister, what benefits do you want?"
Actually, Qing Shui himself didn't really know why he said something like that, or rather, he had said it without thinking. He wasn't coveting her beauty, he didn't have time to go after such an extreme beauty. All he wanted to know was what she could offer him.
This was unreasonable, or rather, a sin that one's heart possessed deep down. Even he himself wasn't sure of what he was doing, to the extent that he started thinking about what he would do and what he would want if the woman really promised to do whatever he asked for.
"Oh, may I know what you want?" Tantai Xuan asked Qing Shui without the slightest change in her tone.
"Can you really give me whatever I want?" Qing Shui smiled and asked Tantai Xuan.
"As long as it's something I have and something that I'm willing to give, it's fine."
"I can help you with this. But I hope that you can get the people from your clan to look after me once I'm at the Four Continents." Qing Shui smiled and looked at Tantai Xuan.
Tantai Xuan was stunned. An amazed look flashed within her eyes. She wasn't sure if she was shocked by his words or by the fact that Qing Shui knew about her power in the Four Continents.
"How did you know about my background in the other Four Conti…" As if she had noticed something, Tantai Xuan stopped in the middle of her sentence and shot an annoyed glance at Qing Shui.
"You're really cunning." Tantai Xuan knew that Qing Shui was testing her. She was sure that Qing Shui didn't know her well, yet he was probing her with his previous question.
Qing Shui smiled, "With your ability, you certainly have power in the other Four Continents. Even you've been there before, so is it really that strange of me to ask a question like this?"
"That's true. Aid me this time and I'll support you when you get there, how about that?" Tantai Xuan said it like she was joking. She sounded a lot more relaxed than before.
"Deal?" Qing Shui asked with a skeptical tone.
"Of course, but I'll only do what my clan can manage. If there are things that my clan is unable to handle, I won't be able to help you."
"Of course, alright then. Will you be heading to the Four Continents this time? Do you need to give me some proof of identity?" Qing Shui chuckled.
"I'll give you my keepsake when you get me the Ten Thousand Demonic Lotus. Are you sure you can help me finish my mission?" Despite what she said, Tantai Xuan still passed Qing Shui a snow-white colored token.
Qing Shui took it. It was made of warm jade and had the word 'Xuan' carved on it. He raised his head and smiled at Tantai Xuan. "It seemed like Miss Tantai has a reputation in the other Four Continents."
"You'll know when you're there." Tantai Xuan faintly smiled. It was a really plain and simple smile.
Even though she had a veil covering her face, Qing Shui was still able to sense her smile through her beautiful pupils. Furthermore, Qing Shui could estimate how terrifying the Four Continents were from what her words.
"Let's go and have a look at the Five Elements Water Jiao King you mentioned!"
"Alright, I know how strong you currently are. But you gotta be careful. I have my own means of protecting myself. Therefore, if the situation isn't good, you should run away quickly and I'll deal with it myself. I'll be just fine as far as self-defense is concerned." Tantai Xuan said.
Her words made Qing Shui laugh. This woman possessed a kind heart, at least she never thought about treating him like cannon fodder. Hence, he smiled and responded, "Just focus on obtaining your Ten Thousand Year Demonic Lotus. I can deal with the Five Elements Water Jiao King just fine."
Tantai Xuan was stunned. She didn't reply and led them into the distance. Below her feet was a Lotus Platform, making her angelic appearance feel more divine and stately.
This was one of the most valuable treasures, a treasure as valuable as a Sacred Object. It seemed to be at least a Sacred Object of Heaven and Earth. It might even be upgradeable.
Qing Shui thought of using the Heavenly Vision Technique to look at the World Cleansing Demonic Lotus on the Lotus Platform. However, he didn't do so. He was reluctant to do so since it was something that already belonged to someone. If he looked at it with his technique, the owner would be able to sense it. Furthermore, after a Sacred Object recognized their owner, they would often resist being inspected by other people.
In roughly fifteen minutes time, an inner sea appeared before Qing Shui. It was really large—one would only be able to see a vast body of water with a glance. As Qing Shui looked at this area, he realized that he has missed out on many things while he traveled with the Nine Continents Steps.
The water surface was very tranquil and still like a mirror. This could more or less be considered a huge lake, except it's way too large. Qing Shui also spotted a huge plant in the distance. It appeared very lofty on the lake surface.
A violet colored lotus. Even though it was a bit far away, it was still no big deal with Qing Shui's strong eyesight. "Is it that the large purple colored lotus?"
Qing Shui soared towards the lotus. Tantai Xuan wanted to say something, but she held it back and similarly followed after Qing Shui. The two of them flew towards the violet colored lotus together.
There was a loud splash as a huge wave of water spurted out of the lake. Suddenly, Qing Shui froze in shock. It wasn't his first time seeing waves, but he suddenly recalled what was mentioned in the Tidal Cloud Waves Seal. He had to observe the tides, waves and the clouds in the sky more often.
He knew that it was talking about a state of mind, and was most likely the essence of the Tidal Cloud Waves Seal.
In the previous instance, especially the moment when the water splashed and the waves rose up and reached its greatest height, the water carried with it a similarly tremendous power. This was a fusion of might and strength. It even had a burst of explosive strength.
Qing Shui noticed Tantai Xuan looking at him suspiciously and answered embarrassingly. "I was a bit absent-minded!"
Qing Shui only looked into the distance when he finished speaking. Coincidentally, an enormous wave rose up yet again. This time, there was an enormous light blue body which was covered in enormous scales along with it. Qing Shui saw the head of the demonic beast.
An enormous and fierce Jiao's head appeared. Furthermore, there were two thick, deer-like horns that emitted a gentle spiritual energy.
A dragon's horn!
"That's the Five Elements Water Jiao King. It has a strong body and a powerful recovery ability. Water elemental beasts are gentle, yet they possess tremendous strength. Their attacks are all encompassing and they are able to attack weak points with ease. It's just like water flowing down a stream. Its endurance and fighting prowess gets significantly raised while in water." Tantai Xuan softly explained to Qing Shui.
"Don't worry, it's really easy. The things that I mentioned before was a joke. Can you tell me what the Four Continents are like when you get the Ten Thousand Years Demonic Lotus?" Qing Shui asked while looking at the Five Elements Water Jiao King from far away.
Tantai Xuan was stunned. "Of course, I meant what I said previously. I won't go back on my promise. We will meet again when you get to the Four Continents."
Qing Shui didn't continue talking and just took out the Big Dipper Sword. He immediately charged towards the Water Jiao King with his Nine Palace Steps.
Qing Shui never thought of immediately murdering the Five Elements Water Jiao Dragon. Instead, he commanded the Thunderous Beast to use the Thunderbolt from a long distance. This was one of Qing Shui's habits while battling and it could help build up the coordination between the Thunderous Beast and himself.
The Thunderbolt from the Thunderous Beast angered the Five Elements Water Jiao King. It abruptly soared out of the water and instantly brought up a splash of water with its enormous body. It was almost comparable to the Earth Jiao.
The Five Elements Water Jiao King was also known as the Five Elements Water Jiao Dragon. This was because of the dragon's horn on its head. However, it was still just a Jiao Dragon, only a grade greater than a Jiao. It could be considered an overlord grade existence in the Five Continents. Reaching this level of strength, it could be considered to be at the top the of the food chain in the Five Continents.
Violet Thunder Spark Chain!
Qing Shui swung the Big Dipper Sword in his hand.
Great Golden Buddha Palm!
There weren't any effects on the Jiao King. Tantai Xuan, who was not far away from Qing Shui, looked at Qing Shui with calm eyes as she stepped on the Lotus Platform, which was actually the World Cleansing Demonic Lotus.
Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation!
Great Golden Buddha Palm!
Although it was just barely, this time, the confinement worked. However, the Water Jiao King managed to break free very quickly before it even reached a breath of time.
While Qing Shui unleashed the Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation, a powerful aura appeared. An amazed look flashed across Tantai Xuan's eyes. When she saw the Earth Diamond Bear, she got even more shocked.
Looking at the Five Elements Water Jiao King that charged towards them, Tantai Xuan swung her hand and a Demonic Beast Armor also appeared on her body. Qing Shui was stunned upon seeing it. It was an enormous violet colored lotus flower.
Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation was even capable of manifesting plants? That Lotus platform was the World Cleansing Demonic Lotus. Her Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation must be related to the World Cleansing Demonic Lotus!

AST 1083 –Five Elements Water Essence, Tantai Xuan's melancholy
Qing Shui saw the enormous purple lotus envelop Tantai Xuan. This was her Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation. Next, he thought about the purple Ten Thousand Years Demonic Lotus. He felt that it would significantly benefit her World Cleansing Demonic Lotus.
"It seems that her Violet Lotus Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation is also a powerful existence." Through its aura, Qing Shui was able to gauge that it was not weaker than his Earth Diamond Bear. It seems that he had learned something new today, apparently demonic beast armor wasn't limited to demonic beasts.
Looking at the Five Elements Water Jiao King that was getting closer and closer, Qing Shui watched as his previous attacks were countered quite easily by the demonic beast. That was a Spiritual Battle Technique. At this moment, he brandished his sword and charged forwards. Within the Ancient Ruins, he was still quite powerful.
Nine Palace Steps!
The Nine Palace Steps which Qing Shui had trained in the temple had gotten significantly stronger, to the point that there were changes in its nature. Currently, it looked even more enigmatic when used. It's like Qing Shui was influencing the aura around him.
Sword of Sixth Wave!
Qing Shui's strength approached 900,000 stars, which was more than enough to defeat the Five Elements Water Jiao King. If the effects of Shield Attack or the 20% chance of doubling his attack activated, he would definitely be able to blow away the mighty demonic beast. The extent of its injuries would be critical if it was not directly slain.
Consecutive loud noises could be heard, causing the water around the lake to spurt up. The water rose at least ten feet, covering the surroundings with water screens. From time to time, a series of roars were accompanied by loud shrieks.
Even without the effects of Shield Attack or the doubling of attack power, the demonic beast was still blown away by Qing Shui's Sword of Sixth Wave. After all, Qing Shui was still significantly stronger than the Five Elements Water Jiao King.
Subsequently, Qing Shui dodged with his Nine Palace Steps before charging towards the beast once again. Simultaneously, he said to Tantai Xuan, "Go get the Ten Thousand Years Demonic Lotus!"
Previously, when Tantai Xuan saw the Five Elements Water Jiao King charging towards Qing Shui, she had instinctively summoned her Demonic Beast Armor in preparation for battle. She had also noticed that Qing Shui had paid special attention to her purple lotus before appearing to increase his strength significantly as well.
"Is he testing his own strength?" Tantai Xuan started making guesses of Qing Shui's intention.
She remained stationary and was a bit stunned when she saw that Qing Shui not only managed to attack the Water Jiao King, he even blew it away! But eventually, she still made her way towards the Ten Thousand Years Demonic Lotus.
The Five Elements Water Jiao King seemed to realize that someone was getting close to the Ten Thousand Years Demonic Lotus and started to give out louder and louder cries. It even ignored Qing Shui and approached Tantai Xuan.
The effects of Shield Attack appeared in Qing Shui's previous Sword of Sixth Wave, blowing away the Five Elements Water Jiao King. However, the scene that followed startled Qing Shui.
The Five Elements Water Jiao King suddenly dived into the lake and disappeared. However, Qing Shui knew that something was wrong. In the blink of an eye, he rushed towards Tantai Xuan, who was in front of the Ten Thousand Years Demonic Lotus.
Moving as you wished!
Qing Shui disappeared instantaneously. The ability of the Sacred Jade divine Stone Ring enabled the user to move to any location they wanted within two hundred li. However, the Five Elements Water Jiao King appeared at almost the same time, opening its mouth to shoot out a dense 'Water Essence'.
This was the true killing move of the Five Element Water Jiao King.
Five Elements Water Essence was also known as the Aqua Breath. As long as one came into contact with it, the Aqua Breath would automatically burn the person's weakest point. No matter where it came in touched, it would burn the weakest part of the person's body.
Qing Shui felt a powerful and dangerous energy. He immediately embraced Tantai Xuan and covered her with his entire body. He cast divine Protection and instantaneously used the ability of the Sacred Jade divine Stone Ring again.
It's just that at the moment when everything was in motion, Qing Shui felt a pure energy forming a protective barrier around the woman in his embrace. All of these happened in a flash. Only now did Qing Shui feel the soft and fragrant body of the woman in his embrace.
He had not intended to take advantage of her. Previously, he had confidently told her to go and take the Ten Thousand Years Demonic Lotus. He would never have thought that things would turn out like this. He instinctively went to save her. This was a kind of responsibility as he wasn't sure if she was capable of protecting herself. Even though she had mentioned before that she had no problems protecting herself, at that instance, he didn't have the time to consider whether he should save her or not.
Qing Shui quickly let go of her. "I'm sorry!"
Tantai Xuan was a bit stunned and didn't say anything. Instead, her beautiful eyes looked at Qing Shui without blinking, as if she wanted to see through him. She saw that his eyes were clear. They had a trace of embarrassment but didn't seem to have any other notions.
"I believe you!"
Her voice sounded really beautiful. However, Qing Shui didn't quite get what she meant. He rubbed his nose embarrassingly. "Wait till I beat this huge guy unconscious before you go to take the Ten Thousand Years Demonic Lotus."
Qing Shui left but Tantai Xuan was still dazed. Currently, her emotions were in a mess. When Qing Shui suddenly hugged her, she had even thought of killing him. However, for a reason unknown to herself, she didn't do that. She, who had never spoken encouragingly to males, currently felt as if she had toppled over a Five flavored bottle. (TL note: Five Flavored bottle meant a bottle which contained all five flavors: Sweet, sour, bitter, salty, spicy)
She believed that if she didn't so happen to really need his help, they wouldn't have interacted much and at most would have greeted each other. Currently, she was already regretting coming to the Ancient Ruins.
On the other hand, Qing Shui was also feeling a little depressed. If he knew that she had such strong means of protecting herself, he wouldn't have embraced her. However, the deed had been done. In any case, the situation was special and he believed that the chances of them meeting in the future were slim and there wouldn't be any complicated feelings between them.
Perhaps because of its powerful Water Essence Attack, the Water Jiao King didn't intend to hide. Instead, it looked at Qing Shui arrogantly. As Qing Shui looked at the Water Jiao King, he couldn't help but be angered by it.
This was just too wretched. Let's just see who is better at playing dirty…
Qing Shui similarly stopped lying low, immediately using the Buddha Form Reveal and swung his Big Dipper Sword.
Great Golden Buddha Palm!
This time, there was a huge gap in their strengths and the Water Jiao King was immediately grabbed by Qing Shui's Great Golden Buddha Palm. In front of absolute strength, all techniques were futile. At this moment, Qing Shui wouldn't sit still and do nothing.
At the moment that Qing Shui swung his left hand, a Primordial Flame Ball smashed towards the Five Elements Water Jiao King.
After only a few blows, the Five Elements Water Jiao King was already on its last breaths. However, if he stopped, the Five Elements Water Jiao King would recover and heal at a terrifying rate.
It possessed the water element of the five elements and it was the king when in water. Even though it wasn't the legendary Water Dragon King, the blood of the Water Dragon King still flowed inside its body. It was naturally terrifying in water.
Unfortunately, it ran into Qing Shui. At this moment, Tantai Xuan was already absorbing the Ten Thousand Years Demonic Lotus. It was just as Qing Shui had assumed, Tantai Xuan had transmitted a message to Qing Shui. She told him to not kill the Five Elements Water Jiao King because she wasn't able to absorb all of the Ten Thousand Years Demonic Lotus. ……
After a few hours, the pair sat on a hilltop. Qing Shui watched the clouds in the distance as he asked.
Even though the clouds in the sky were gaseous, they still exerted an enormous pressure. The waves of clouds were thick like smoke, covering the entire sky. It would even cause people to feel panicked and constrained.
"It's ok, this is my only harvest from the Ancient Ruins." Tantai Xuan sounded relaxed when she said that.
"Can you tell me about the other Four Continents?"
"I can only tell you that they are practically boundless. The spiritual energy there is more abundant than in the Five Continents. Moreover, there are no restrictions from the laws of Heaven and Earth. They have countless supreme aristocratic clans and ancient sects are everywhere. There are imperial courts and dynasties but they are still ruled over by sects. Of course, there are still exceptions but I'm not clear on the details either. You will find out for yourself when you're there." Tantai Xuan explained slowly after thinking for a while.
Qing Shui didn't question her any further. Tantai Xuan had already given him a lot of information with her previous sentence. Dynasties and imperial courts, they were all systems from a long time ago. It's just like the General Clan in the Green Cloud Continent, which was a remnant from imperial times. This meant that imperial courts still existed in the other Four Continents.
"Qing Shui, I'm leaving now. I will appear again when you're headed for the other Four Continents." Tantai Xuan turned around and glanced at Qing Shui.
"Take care of yourself! Goodbye!" Qing Shui smiled and nodded.
As Tantai Xuan left, her thoughts were in a mess. It wasn't just because Qing Shui hugged her because of his strength. In terms of martial arts, she had always been really confident in her skills. There was no one at her age who was stronger than her. Even in the five years she had spent in the Four Continents, she had rarely come across people of a similar age who were stronger than her. However, this man who was once really weak and fragile in her eyes had now turned out to be so strong…
Qing Shui was instead thinking about Di Chen. It has been so long, how has she been over there? Every time he thought about it, he would start feeling worried. Very soon. Very soon he would finally be able to go look for her. In the past, his strength was barely enough. But now, he already had the Nine Continents Mountain and he was also able to head over to the other Four Continents with his own strength, so it shouldn't pose too much a problem to him. ……
"It's almost time, shall we return?"
As soon as they exited the ravine, Yu Ruyan looked around and said to the others.
Fattie wasn't far from them and was examining the surroundings.
"It's time to head back. It's better to reach there earlier and not delay in heading out." Yiye Jiange said with a smile.
"Alright then, let’s head back. Who knows if Qing Shui has already gone back yet?" Yu He smiled and asked when she saw that the exit of the ravine was not far away.
"Probably not. I suppose he would wait until last minute before exiting. For all you know, he might still be in there." Di Qing said while shaking her head.
"When we're out of the ravine, let’s head back immediately. We don't need to be too fast since we have more than enough time." Wenren Wu-shuang said as she walked to Luan Luan's side.
As soon as they got out of the ravine, they saw a wide field. A light breeze brushed their faces but they were all shocked, especially Yiye Jiange and Luan Luan.
There were more than ten people in the distance. Furthermore, there were tents with the symbol of a male lion on them.
Lion King's Ridge!
Even though Yiye Jiange has never once forgotten about them, when they suddenly appeared in front of her, she still felt a bit nervous. If it had been her past self, she might have felt scared, however, it was now more of a nervousness. It seemed like she still hasn't fully prepared herself for this day.
Since these graceful and elegant young women appeared all of a sudden without wearing veils to cover their face, they were immediately noticed by the people from Lion King's Ridge.
Among them, 80% were elderly men. There were also a few who seemed like they just reached middle age. Judging from the way they're dressed, they seemed to have important positions in Lion King's Ridge.
"I'm not leaving. Don't look at them, don't talk either." Yiye Jiange said softly. Without saying anything, the others changed directions and returned to the original route.
"Wait! Ladies, please hold your steps!"
Suddenly, a tall and lofty middle-aged man from Lion King's Ridge stood up and said. The gold gown on his body made him looked really noble. In terms of physical appearance, he actually looked quite handsome and had deep eyes. Because of the aquiline nose he possessed, he somehow gave people the impression that he was fierce and brutal.

AST 1084 –Beitang Lie, Bewitching Flower Wave
The girls who heard the noise were all startled. Both Yu He and Di Qing hid Yiye Jiange behind them. Right at this moment, Fattie went ahead of them and immediately stood in between the girls and Lion King's Ridge.
Now, Yiye Jiange's heart was thumping. The reason why she asked Yu He and Di Qing to stand in front of her was because she recognized this middle-aged man. At that time, the man who was about to get married to her was also the young master of Lion King's Ridge.
The young master of Lion King's Ridge at that time, whether he was still the young master now was unclear, the reason being that this person caused the death of her family, hence Yiye Jiange could recognize this man with one glance. He looked exactly the same as himself many years ago.
She wasn't scared, she was only worried for Luan Luan. Luan Luan was the hope of Yiye Clan. The reason she was the way she was now because she was worried of Luan Luan, also, the life of herself and her brother were all in exchange for their parents very life. Hence, for her dead parents, she had to appreciate her own life too.
"May I help you?"
Fattie stood up and questioned the middle-aged man in golden gown who was approaching them.
The middle-aged man in golden gown knitted his brows when he saw Fattie. He seemed to be unsatisfied with the fat person who blocked his path and responded in an upset tone: "I have some things that I would like to talk to the ladies about, please move aside."
The man had a honorable status, never has he ever been stopped so forcefully by someone before. Especially at times when he was talking to women, no one would dare to stand in his path, nor would they even dare to interrupt him.
"If you have anything you would like to talk about, just talk about it here!"
As soon as Fattie finished speaking, his entire body got thrown out vigorously. His giant body scratched through the surface of the ground and formed a deep trench on the ground. It continued on until when it was about a hundred meters long.
"If you try to stop me again, you will die!" The man in golden gown looked at Fattie who was not far away from him and said. He once again moved his sight to the girls and made his way towards them.
"Fattie, are you alright?"
Wenren Wushuang and Hai Dongqing asked in a worried tone as they looked at Fattie stood back up. Simultaneously, they also looked at the approaching man furiously.
"Set up the formation!"
Yiye Jiange grinned her teeth and said.
Including Fattie, they swiftly went on to set up formation, the one that they're trying to set up was the Buddha Aura Great Illumination Formation.
"Haha, even you guys are capable of setting up formations, why set up formation? Do you really think that one small formation is capable of stopping me? Yiye Jiange, you have given me quite the trouble trying to look for you!"
The man laughed really loudly. The things which he said gave the girls quite a shock. About Yiye Jiange's past life, a few of them were aware of it. As Yiye Jiange heard that voice, she walked up to the front and coldly looked at the middle-aged man in golden gown with her beautiful pupils.
"Beitang Lie, you no longer need to look for me, the reason why I'm here right now is precisely to fight justice for Yiye Clan. And you Beitang Clan, you will have to pay back all of it in blood" Yiye Jiange said calmly.
Since Yiye Jiange could recognize Beitang Lie with one glance, it's not weird that Beitang Lie could recognize her either.
"Hahaha! I admired what you said! But do you truly believe that you can get me to pay you back full in blood with your current strength? Stop joking! Do you not know the trouble I have to go through to find you? The trip to the Ancient Ruins this time has truly been worth it! Don't worry, I won't kill you, I will make you marry me in a grand way. This way, without saying anything, the grudges our family hold against each other will be resolved." Beitang Lie once again broke out in laughter. He seemed to be in a lot of joy.
"Don't you think what you said sounded really funny?" Yiye Jiange knitted her brows and asked.
"Funny? There is nothing that I Beitang Lie haven't managed to do once I have said it. I am aware that you will never do as I wish even if it means death. But let me tell you this, even if you are dead, I will still marry you. Not only so, I will even touch you at night." When Beitang Lie was almost about to finish his sentence, he sounded a bit cold.
"Hey, you, the guy with aquiline nose, you want to marry my auntie with that disgusting face of yours? In the past, I have only heard before that you have disgusting nose, but today when I finally get to see it, I think that's just an understatement, it's even worse than a dog's nose!" Luan Luan couldn't hold her anger and spoke up.
"You actually called her aunt? Are you the daughter of Yiye Tian? Well said!" Beitang Lie said furiously. There were seemingly flames in his eyes, causing him to look especially furious. There was also a kind of madness and fiery expression that couldn't be described in words.
He hated people talking about his nose the most. This time, Luan Luan actually pointed right at it and criticized it. For a moment, he got triggered by it and was almost unable to control his anger. He was really powerful, additionally, he also thought himself as someone who has really great self-control. Despite so, even he who has lived like a prince for many years was for a moment unable to restrain himself.
"Precisely, I am Yiye Tian's daughter. Today, I'll first kill you to avenge Yiye Clan!" As Luan Luan finished speaking, she immediately swung her hand and summoned her own Demonic Beast. About ten of them appeared all at once.
"Things have already turned out this way. Auntie, we have no choice but to give it a try, besides, it's not like we don't have any chance of winning." Luan Luan looked at Yiye Jiange and said.
Yiye Jiange summoned the Seven-headed Crystal Beast. They were all within the Buddha Aura Great Illumination Formation.
All the old men were already gathered behind Beitang Lie. Both sides had powerful demonic beasts. In fact, there were as many as a hundred of them. For a moment, it felt as if the aura in the air has formed a vortex.
"Young master, look at that, that's the Seven-headed Crystal Beast, don't make any reckless moves."
An old man knitted his brows and said.
"Elder Xi, in a while, go look for a few other elders and form a formation to keep that beast distracted. Then you can leave the rest to me." Beitang Lie smiled and said.
As soon as Elder Xi finished speaking, he started whispering to the ten elderly men around him.
"Set up the Nine Palace Eight Trigram Formation!"
Yiye Jiange could tell that the enemies opposite them were yet to make their moves. Obviously, they weren't really see them as a problem. Frankly speaking, the situation was precisely as she thought, the reason being that the elderly men opposite were all people with more than ten hundred thousand stars worth of strength. In this Ancient Ruin, they really didn't see the girls as too much of a problem. But there were still a few demonic beasts that they saw as a threat. The Seven-headed Crystal Beast as well as the Six-headed Windfire Wolves, when they're here in particular, had quite a huge contrast in strength. The maximum strength that they possessed here were only barely worth around three hundred thousand stars.
The girls took this opportunity to swiftly set up the Nine Palace Eight Trigram Formation while the people opposite them were getting closer and closer to them. Beitang Lie waved his hand: "Do it!"
Among those old men, some clapped their hands whereas some screamed: "Surround them!"
"Luan Luan, we should first try to hold them back with the demonic beasts and wait for them to set up the Nine Palace Eight Trigram Formation. By doing so, we would have built up a good foundation for ourself. They wouldn't be able to do anything to us. By then, we might have a chance of turning the tide of the battle." Yiye Jiange said to Luan Luan while looking at the people surrounding them.
The Seven-headed Crystal Beast opened its mouth and spat out an icy flame towards a demonic beast closest to it.
The other three Windfire Wolves similarly charged towards the demonic beasts closest to them. Even though the Windfire Wolves weren't as strong as the Seven-headed Crystal Beast, they're still significantly stronger when compared to those opposite it. They could also manage to instant kill their enemies.
"Eight Directional Sky Net Formation!"
Elder Xi from before let out a huge scream. At the same time, he along with seven other elders each ran into one direction, with the eight of them in eight different directions, they managed to surround the Seven-headed Crystal Beast and left it in the center. Powerful aura started flowing in their body, instantly connecting all of them together, just like an enormous net.
This was the Eight Directional Sky Net Formation. It could only be used when there were eight people. It helped significantly boost their strength. Unfortunately, it couldn't be used for offensive attacks, it could only be used to trap enemies. Making use of their pressure to trap their opponents from all eight directions.
Even though the Seven-headed Crystal Beast was formidable, when standing in front eight old men trapping it, with two being more than two hundred thousand stars and one being three hundred thousand stars strong, it couldn't break through it for a moment. Nevertheless, it still managed to fluster the enemies.
The strongest person from Lion King's Ridge who entered the Ancient Ruin this time was only worth three hundred thousand stars. Furthermore, most of the people in Lion King's Ridge consisted of people near the level of being elders. Even around Beitang Lie, there were less than three elder with three hundred thousand stars worth of strength. Of course, this was their strength when they're in Ancient Ruin. When they were outside and bound by the Laws in Heaven and Earth, their strength would have been decreased significantly.
When Luan Luan saw the Seven-headed Crystal Beast trapped, she hurriedly made the Windfire Wolves and Earth Devouring Mice to go support it. But at this moment, two elderly men in red gowns immediately stopped two of the Six-headed Windfire Wolves. They both had two blue lion heads imprinted in front of their chest.
"There is no need for any more resistance, even though your demonic beast is powerful, you should remember what kind of a sect Lion King's Ridge is and what they specialize in. The thing that a tamer specialized most in is dealing with demonic beasts."
Looking at all of these, Yu He knitted her brows. Looking at the girls as well as Fattie who were forced to act passively, she said: "The Ten Thousand Poisonous Violet Sable is here, we should try our best to hold on, for all you know, Qing Shui will be here any minute now."
"Considering the circumstance we're in, I kind of hope that he won't be here….." Yiye Jiange said bitterly.
Her expression looked indifferent. No one has ever seen Yiye Jiange furious, nor have they ever seen her particularly happy… They have also not seen her broke down in tears.
Yu He smiled and remained silent. She took two steps forward and unsheathed a long sword.
She looked really outstandingly beautiful. As she took a step forward, the rhythm across the heaven and earth also seemingly changed. Everyone who was present were all attracted by Yu He's graceful look. Yu He gave a faint smile and once again swung the long sword in her hand.
Suddenly, a faint sweet scent appeared. After that, petals started to appear one after another in the air. They consisted of a variety of colors and looked really stunning. It almost felt like an illusion.
Sea of flowers!
Her movement wasn't actually that fast, but the flower petals in the air was gradually increasing. Yu He's body slowly emerged within the sea of flowers in the sky. The movement of the petals in the air was influenced by her body and followed along it.
Bewitching Flower Wave!
Yu He let out a scream. Next, the things around her all sunk into seas of flowers. After that, she quickly told Yiye Jiange and the others: "Set up the formation quickly, I can't hold on for too long."
Yu He had the physique of hundred blossoms. She already had quite a splendid achievement with the Secret Art of Hundred Blossoms which she cultivated. But this also relied on spirit energy, hence, she could only forcefully use the mighty of the Hundred Blossoms Secret Technique. This was also only for temporarily trapping the enemies.
By the time the sea of flowers disappeared, the girls disappeared too, the only things left behind were a few flags on the ground.
"Damn, what kind of a spell is this?" Bei Tanglie screamed out in anger while staring at the formation with his eyes.
The Lion King's Ridge was considered a supreme sect in the five continents. They possessed abundant knowledge about casting spells. A lot of people already felt that something was special with the seal, so for a moment, they all looked at the flag tin the center in silent.
The women in the spell all looked at the spell opening with caution while the Ten Thousand Poisonous Violet Sable made creaking noises. It sounded ear-piercingly sharp. Not knowing what happened, the women looked at it in confusion.
Could it be that Qing Shui was here?
