God Emperor Chapter 1075
Two Beast Kings had died in a row, causing a negative influence. If the Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon couldn’t turn the tides, this would definitely affect the morale of the beast warriors.
Thus, the Blood God Sect Deity must die. Only his blood could intimidate the human Monks once again.
Five to six thousand human elites had become prisoners. Most of them had had their legs broken, some having their cultivations sealed. They knelt in the desert hundreds of miles away from Yingsha City.
Countless savage beasts were gathered there with the human prisoners in the center. They bared their sharp teeth, ready to pounce at any time and eat them.
The sun blazed. The desert wind blew.
This humiliating scene infuriated all the human Monks in Yingsha City.
With Yingsha City as the center, 200,000 miles in radius was all desert. This took up most of the land in Blue Dragon Void World. The natives here called it the Ingmar Desert.
There were close to 100 beast groups in the Ingmar Desert. They had very obvious roles. Twelve of them surrounded the trapped humans. The others spread throughout the desert to gather the Genius Treasures.
The Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon was honestly too strong. It had united all the savage beast groups against the human Monks. This was why the humans were in trouble now.
Any beast group was far above the humans. Of course, as more and more strong humans hurried over on Void Ships, the 12 beast groups couldn’t control the humans anymore. Within a few days, a large batch of humans rushed out of the siege.
The Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon summoned 12 more beast groups to Yingsha City to stop the humans.
They wanted to steal all the treasures of the Blue Dragon Void World. They didn’t want to leave a single saint stone to the humans.
Some of the beast groups had already hurried to Yingsha City under the lead of their Beast King and grouped with the Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon. Some others were on their way.
“Horrible! Those savage beasts don’t dare to do anything in Kunlun’s Field, but they can repress the humans like this in the Blue Dragon Void World.”
“We’ve been too comfortable in Kunlun’s Field, so we can’t accept this cruel reality in the Blue Dragon Void World. If the Empress hadn’t charged into the Savage Barren Territory 300 years ago and killed eight beast Supreme Saints, intimidating the royal beasts, the First Central Empire wouldn’t have had these centuries of peace and prosperity.”
“The younger generation these centuries have indeed been too comfortable,” an elder sighed. “They’ve lost the feeling of danger.”
The morale of the humans in Yingsha City were heavily reduced. Of course, some also believed that the two Heirs would definitely have a way to stop the Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon’s bloodshed.
Unfortunately, the two Heirs kept silent and didn’t act.
A while later, news spread: “Gu Linfeng killed five generals of the Lingxiao Heavenly King Mansion and offended Chi Wansui. Because of this, the two Heirs won’t get involved.”
It was just a rumor and few people believed it, but it still created a bad influence. Everyone knew that with Gu Linfeng’s stubborn personality, he would never kneel and apologize to the Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon. It was even less possible for him to jump into the trap for a group of humans unrelated to him.
This was why everyone put their hopes on the two Heirs. If they wouldn’t get involved, did this mean that they would watch the thousands of elites die tragically?
Would the humans still have the confidence to fight against the beasts after this massacre?
Of course, some Monks also believed it wasn’t that the Heirs didn’t want to get involved. They just couldn’t change the situation.
What the Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon had set up was a dead end. Even if all nine Heirs arrived at once, it would still be unresolvable, let alone the two Heirs alone. The Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon’s cultivation could kill those defenseless humans with the snap of a finger.
There was only one way to save those humans. Gu Linfeng had to voluntarily kneel before the Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon and save those thousands of elites with his life.
That night, Chi Wansui appeared before the busiest restaurant in Yingsha City. “In the entire Blue Dragon Void World, only Gu Linfeng can save them. It’s not that I don’t wish to help them. I’m truly powerless.”
Zhang Ruochen naturally heard the Sky-swallowing Demonic Dragon’s voice, but he was still calm. He ignored it and continued tracking the Shooting Star Invisibility Cloak to search for Han Qiu.
In the evening, Zhang Ruochen came to a region with very strong wind. He stopped. “I know you’re nearby. Show yourself immediately!”
Wild wind blew in the desert, wailing like a beast’s cry.
Sand on the ground moved quickly, forming a huge ten-mile-wide vortex. It sank right into the ground. A thin black figure appeared in the center and rose up gradually.
When the black Qi scattered, it revealed Han Qiu who looked at Zhang Ruochen with bright eyes. She chuckled. “I knew you put something into the Shooting Star Invisibility Cloak. But I’m a bit disappointed that you came so late.”
“If you knew that I left a ray of Qi in the Shooting Star Invisibility Cloak, why didn’t you refine it?”
Han Qiu walked toward Zhang Ruochen. Her ruby-like lips curled into a mesmerizing smile. “Why should I refine it? I have to return the Shooting Star Invisibility Cloak to you. It’s on me right now. Do you want to…take it off yourself?”
After comprehending the rules of darkness, Han Qiu’s personality had changed greatly.
When Zhang Ruochen first met Han Qiu, her personality had been like Huang Yanchen—a bit cold and proud. She’d indeed felt something for Zhang Ruochen, but she would have never taken the initiative like this.
In Zhang Ruochen’s opinion, it was a bit too much.
At this moment, Han Qiu had already walked to Zhang Ruochen and was only a step away. Her long black hair hung to the ground. No matter how violent the cold wind was, it couldn’t move a strand of her hair.
Zhang Ruochen stared into her eyes. It felt like those beautiful eyes were like black holes trying to suck away his spirit and soul. However, Zhang Ruochen wasn’t a typical man.
He immediately looked away. “Are you wearing the Shooting Star Invisibility Cloak on the inside or outside?”
“Obviously the most inside,” Han Qiu said, smiling.
Zhang Ruochen reached out toward her collar. Just as he was about to touch her, cold light flashed at his fingertips. Sharp Sword Qi surged out toward Han Qiu’s forehead.
Zhang Ruochen had put Sword Five’s concept into it. It was as fast as light and sparked in the air.
Han Qiu vanished in a puff of black smoke. Zhang Ruochen’s finger only penetrated her shadow.
The next moment, Han Qiu re-solidified to the right of Zhang Ruochen with an upset expression. “I knew you were the type that wouldn’t understand these things.”
Zhang Ruochen retracted his finger. “I also guessed that you’ve been hiding your cultivation. Your current abilities shouldn’t be weaker than a Beast King, right?”
The Way of Darkness that Han Qiu cultivated was the best at hiding. It wasn’t hard for her to hide her cultivation.
In the scroll world, Zhang Ruochen had supplied her with an endless stream of divine blood. With the devouring speed of the Way of Darkness, she’d already refined it all. She also used the Qi of Life from the Divine Sky-Connecting Tree and Qi of Death from the tree stump to reach the Sixth Level.
After that, she’d absorbed a great amount of Saintly Source Spiritual Qi from the crack in the earth. She instantly reached the pinnacle of the Seventh Level.
These days, she’d absorbed the power of the seven-colored saint flower and had new improvements.
When Zhang Ruochen found her, she’d just entered the Eighth Level. It could be said that Han Qiu, with the Form of Darkness and the Way of Darkness, could swallow all energy in the world.
No Monk could compare to her speed of cultivation. With her current abilities, not even Zhang Ruochen could be her match.
Han Qiu batted her lashes and laughed like a little fox. “If not for your unrestricted help, I would have never reached the level I am at now.”
There was no smile on Zhang Ruochen’s face. “Give the Saintly Source Spring to me.”
“I can give you anything if you agree to my condition.”
Han Qiu wiped her smile away. Piercing cold Qi instantly radiated off from her, turning her into an ice-cold beauty. Perhaps this was the real her.
“You want to talk about conditions with me?” Zhang Ruochen asked.
“You think I’m not qualified right now?” she shot back.
After a moment of silence, Zhang Ruochen nodded. “Okay. I will agree if your condition isn’t too over-the-top.”
With the Form and Way of Darkness, she could become a sovereign in any era. A person like her would never submit to anyone.
Han Qiu must know what power she held now, so she wasn’t willing to be Zhang Ruochen’s follower anymore. Instead, she wanted to negotiate.
Staring into Zhang Ruochen’s eyes, Han Qiu said with determination, “I want to be the Crown Princess of the Sacred Central Empire, not the Crown Prince’s servant.”
Zhang Ruochen was slightly shocked. After observing her and seeing that she was serious, he said slowly, “Your condition is a bit too much. Please change it.”
Han Qiu shook her head and her eyes softened. She said, “As I said, I wouldn’t be like this now if not for all your help. I never thought about betraying you. I just don’t wish to be under anyone. Is this simple condition too much too?”
“Zhang Ruochen, you once saved me in the Heavenly Devil Mountain. We cultivated the Yin and Yang Sword Formation together. You encouraged me to join the Yin and Yang Sect. I went and learned the Taichi Instinct Technique. You told me to leave the Yin and Yang Sect, so I went with you.”
“Am I just an obedient servant in your eyes? Don’t you feel what I feel for you? Now, I’m telling you clearly that I do not wish to be your servant. Now, I will fight for what I should fight for.”
