God Emperor Chapter 1074
The Saintly Source Spring within the black saint flower was enough for 34,000 cups. Divided into ten portions, the two Heirs, Chi Wansui and Beigong Lan, took away seven portions. They brought them back to the Yingsha Military Base to divide amongst the people.
As the respected Heirs, there was no worry that they would take the Saintly Source Spring for themselves.
Zhang Ruochen took half of the remaining three portions. The other half was divided evenly between the Wan Family, Feng Family, Xuan Sword Clan, and Black Market Excellence Hall.
This way, Zhang Ruochen alone took around 5,000 cups of Saintly Source Spring. This was the biggest portion.
One cup and some auxiliary medicines could produce a Grade Seven Divine Origin Pill that was worth cities. Five thousand cups of the Grade Seven Saintly Source Spring represented a terrifying amount of wealth.
Many Monks present were envious and jealous, such as the Monks of the Cai Family and Shangguan Clan. Their families had each received 600 cups and had to give more to the ones that had killed the most beasts.
In the end, the leaders of the families could only take 300 cups back. It wasn’t even close to Zhang Ruochen’s number.
Zhang Ruochen had gotten the black saint flower first. Taking around 5,000 cups was reasonable. No one dared to complain.
After dividing up the Saintly Source Spring, all the Monks looked to the black saint flower. It was also extremely valuable and comparable to a 10,000-year-old saint medicine. It was hard to determine its medicinal value without close inspection.
Zhang Ruochen wrapped the black saint flower with a beam of Holy Qi. Holding it, he said, “The black saint flower belongs to me. Any complaints?”
They naturally had complaints.
The black saint flower had been born with the Saintly Source Spring. It was a treasure born from nature and definitely had many miraculous uses. Who didn’t want it?
However, Gu Linfeng’s combat ability was honestly too terrifying. He’d first killed Wei Longxing and then the Blue Eagle Beast King. Barely anyone present dared to go against him.
All the Monks looked to the two Heirs. Probably only they could restrict Gu Linfeng.
Chi Wansui’s Lingxiao Heavenly King Mansion also had big conflicts with Gu Linfeng. That day, everyone had watched Gu Linfeng force five Canglong Army generals to their knees. This had truly humiliated the Lingxiao Heavenly King Mansion. Those five generals had even died because of this.
Many cultivators believed that Chi Wansui would definitely object to Gu Linfeng.
Chi Wansui was a young man around 20 years old. He was handsome with thick eyebrows and defined features. He radiated with a noble aura.
“Gu Linfeng, the black saint flower is useful to me too. If you give it to me, all your conflicts with the Lingxiao Heavenly King Mansion will be forgiven.”
Chi Wansui’s tone was very calm. He didn’t act overbearingly or unreasonably. It was like a conversation between friends, but he still gave off a feeling that couldn’t be disagreed with.
Zhang Ruochen didn’t intend to give away the black saint flower. “I indeed have some conflicts with the Lingxiao Heavenly King Mansion, but that doesn’t seem to be my fault.”
“Yes, it is my men who offended you first,” Chi Wansui continued to speak calmly. “But some of your actions were too cruel! I checked the corpses of the five Canglong Army generals. They weren’t killed by beasts but by human cultivators! You should understand what I’m saying, right?”
It was clear that Chi Wansui already knew that Zhang Ruochen had killed those five generals. They were all Ninth Level Half-Saints and important figures. How big of a loss was their death to the Lingxiao Heavenly King Mansion?
No matter how refined Chi Wansui was, he still couldn’t truly forgive Zhang Ruochen. Of course, with the current situation, Zhang Ruochen wouldn’t give him the black saint flower even if Chi Wansui truly wanted to make up with him.
Otherwise, the powerful image that Zhang Ruochen had developed would be destroyed. Everyone would think that he was afraid of the strong, and that he bowed down to Chi Wansui.
Zhang Ruochen chuckled. “If you place such high value on this saint flower, then it must be very useful. In that case, I’m even more unwilling to give it away.”
“You must think carefully,” Chi Wansui said. “It’s always better to have one more good relationship in the Blue Dragon Void World.”
Zhang Ruochen didn’t say anything. He’d already decided.
As of now, he still wasn’t sure what the black saint flower could be used specifically for. He wanted to go back and find Blackie immediately. That fat cat claimed to know 100,000 years in the past and future. He should know why Chi Wansui cared so much about the flower.
Zhang Ruochen ran into Shangguan Xianyan as soon as he walked out of the tent.
The important figures of the Blood God Sect were all present, including the Saint elder, Hai Lingyin, Ji Shui, and Blue Night. They all stood behind Shangguan Xianyan. She had nine rings of holy light around her. Her white dress fluttered and her eyes smiled. Her slender finger moved slightly.
Ji Shui immediately walked over with five-colored saint armor and offered it to Zhang Ruochen.
“Deity, this is your battle reward.” Shangguan Xianyan’s voice was gentle and almost friendly.
The five-colored saint armor was the Five Elements Saint Armor that Wei Longxing had worn. It was indeed a needed defensive treasure. Zhang Ruochen took it without complaints.
“Don’t go,” Ji Shui’s voice said from within the huge blood robe. “Stay!”
Zhang Ruochen didn’t keep his stern expression and instead smiled. “Senior Uncle Ji, it’s not that I want to leave you. It’s just that many people here don’t welcome me.”
Shangguan Xianyan’s eyes shone beautifully like stars. “Deity, can we speak alone?”
“I don’t think it’s necessary. Saintess, you can say whatever you wish.” Zhang Ruochen kept staring at Ji Shui with a smile.
Ji Shui ground her teeth in anger. This guy was getting more and more shameless, even daring to tease his Senior Uncle. If Ji Shui was powerful enough, she would definitely gouge out his eyes.
“You killed the Blue Eagle Beast King,” Shangguan Xianyan said. “You definitely angered the other Beast Kings and they will use extreme tactics against you. Stay! With the alliance between the Blood God Sect, Shangguan Clan, and Cai Family, even the Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon won’t be able to kill you.”
“Deity, please stay!”
“Deity, please stay!”
The Monks of the Blood God Sect all lowered onto one knee, asking him to stay. After the last few battles, Zhang Ruochen’s powerful performance had won all of them over.
Many of the younger disciples all worshipped him as if he was a god.
Zhang Ruochen looked away from Ji Shui and gazed at those Monks. “You can’t stop the anger of the Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon,” he said indifferently.
With that, he walked away, leaving behind a tall and slender silhouette. A moment later, he disappeared into the horizon.
Chi Wansui, Wan Huayu, Beigong Lan, and some other elites walked out of their tent and looked in the direction that Zhang Ruochen had left in.
An elder in gold thread armor mused, “How could he kill two Beast Kings in a row?”
Beigong Lan carried her ancient sword and radiated the etherealness of a sword saint.
“A Beast King’s last desperate attacks can kill even lower Saints,” she said. “Does this mean that they’d died before they could even set off their Sea of Qi? How can he be so fast?”
“He must have other hidden tricks,” someone guessed.
Chi Wansui walked to the corpse of the Blue Eagle Beast King. Reaching out, he pressed down on the bloody blue feathers. He closed his eyes, sensing closely.
He was born with a mysterious power that allowed him to sense tiny energy waves. It could be said that very few things could escape from his senses. If anyone wanted to sneak up on him, it would be suicide.
“The Blue Eagle Beast King’s fatal hit is a beam of Sword Qi,” he said. “A bit of sword intent remains in its blood. It’s very powerful and even comparable to Junior Sister Beigong’s.”
Beigong Lan’s pupils constricted. “There are only a few in our generation whose cultivation in sword is comparable to mine. If Gu Linfeng really killed the Blue Eagle Beast King, then he must be someone incredibly frightening.”
Chi Wansui retracted his hand and wiped the blood away. “Actually, Gu Linfeng might not have killed the Blue Eagle Beast King. It might have been the Time and Space Descendant. Don’t forget that Zhang Ruochen is somewhere close to the Yingsha City Base and he’s a genius in the Sword Way. More importantly, according to information from the Ministry of War, they had some interactions before.”
With that, it dawned on everyone. They all thought that his analysis made sense. No matter how powerful Gu Linfeng was, he was only a Sixth Level Half-Saint. How could he kill a Beast King?
The Time and Space Descendant Zhang Ruochen must have used the powers of time and space to kill the Beast King.
News that the Blue Eagle Beast King was killed by the Blood God Sect Deity spread through the beast groups and stirred up a commotion. All the Beast Kings were furious.
That day, a dozen Beast Kings set out and captured more than half of the humans that had escaped from Yingsha City. They numbered five to six thousand.
Other than the Beast Kings of the 12 beast groups, there were even some from the Half-Saint Rank and Outer Rank. They’d been summoned by the Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon to kill the humans near Yingsha City.
The humans quickly sank into an even more passive situation.
A Beast King would appear every now and then near Yingsha City, covering the sky with black clouds and shaking the earth.
The Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon showed its true form and flew in the air. It called out to Zhang Ruochen, “The Blood God Sect Deity must kneel before me and apologize in three days. After that, I will devour 1,000 humans per day!”
The sound waves of the Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon spread tens of thousands of miles away.
