Immortal And Martial Dual Cultivation Chapter 1218
Why did Xiao Chen not head in the direction of the exit? There were too many Demon mixed-blood cultivators quietly watching in that direction.
With his trio’s current state, if those Demon mixed-bloods became greedy, heading that way would just be a trap. So, he could only head deeper into the Human-Demon Paradise.
“This is the moment I’ve been waiting for! Die!”
However, just at this moment, the mysterious red-clad person, who had been quietly waiting for a chance, landed on the ground, taking action without any warning when he saw that Xiao Chen had used his final trump card.
This person’s figure turned into a red fluid that continuously elongated into a fine red thread of light flying quickly towards Xiao Chen’s chest.
The expression of Xiao Chen, who was carrying both Dugu Ao and Mu Xiyan, changed drastically. Shock flashed in his heart as he quickly tried to think of a way to deal with this.
However, he helplessly discovered that given his current state, carrying one person in each arm, he could not dodge this red line shooting towards him.
This person was like the most sinister venomous snake in the world. It hid in the darkness and waited for its prey to expose an opening before immediately making a move, killing in one strike.
Damn it. Will I still fail to escape death in the end?
Xiao Chen, who did not have any trump cards left, felt despair when he saw that strange and mysterious Martial Technique.
“Coincidentally, I was also waiting for this moment. He won’t be dying in your hands.”
Just as that red line was about to pierce through Xiao Chen’s chest and suck away his blood, another figure suddenly appeared.
This person seemed to have waited for a long time as well. Two different colors of light—white and black—intertwined in the air, forming a youth with a faint smile on his face and a sword on his back.
In the time it took for a spark to fly, the young swordsman withdrew his smile and coldly made his move, quickly drawing the sword on his back.
The sword light appeared dazzling, giving off a startling sword intent. The young swordsman grasped his sword with both hands, holding it across his chest, using the sword to block that strange red line.
“Bang!” It sounded like something struck flagstone.
The red line kept piling up and rematerialized a figure, which shrieked in pain as he bounced back.
The red-clad person held his head. Then, he glared at the newcomer in rage because his sure-kill attack was blocked. He shouted, “Chu Chaoyun! How dare you spoil my move!”
Still feeling fear from what just happened, Xiao Chen showed shock on his face. This was truly surprising. He had not been surprised at three Primes sending people to cause trouble; he just had not expected them to send so many.
As for Chu Chaoyun’s appearance, Xiao Chen never even considered this possibility. No matter how hard Xiao Chen thought, it would never have occurred to him that this person might turn up.
With one glance, it was clear that the mysterious red-clad man was a powerful member of the Deep Abyss Demonic World’s Demon Races. It was also within expectation for the experts of the Deep Abyss Demonic World to appear here.
Back then, the Azure Emperor had beaten back the eighteen Demon Monarchs with just himself and his saber, even injuring the Dark Church’s Church Master.
The Azure Emperor had led the troops of the Dragon’s Gate in and out of the Deep Abyss Demonic World, killing several Demon experts, unrivaled in his era.
It would be strange if the other party did not fear such a person and send people to prevent Xiao Chen from becoming the second Azure Emperor.
However, the appearance of Chu Chaoyun—both friend and enemy—a person that seemed unfathomable was utterly unexpected.
Why did Chu Chaoyun turn up here and even help Xiao Chen by blocking this sure-kill strike?
The situation did not permit Xiao Chen time to think. The many half-step Martial Emperors knocked back by the Solar Plume Feather already caught their breaths and were regrouping to charge over.
Xiao Chen pushed off the ground, and a fierce, murderous intent flashed in his eyes. Then, he carried Mu Xiyan and Dugu Ao into the depths of the Human-Demon Paradise.
Four of the six half-step Martial Emperors from the Three Holy Lands had died, an extremely heavy loss.
The remaining two roared furiously and led the survivors in pursuit of the fleeing Xiao Chen.
Chu Chaoyun, who was dealing with the red-clad Blood Demon, looked over and spewed out a large amount of golden Heavenly Flame from his eyes, blocking the path of the half-step Martial Emperors.
The golden flame even burned space the moment it appeared; it was like a ravenous beast opening its mouth and swallowing up space, looking very horrifying.
“A Heavenly Flame!”
This startled the chasing half-step Martial Emperors into a rapid retreat. However, when they moved back halfway, they realized that something was off, and they reacted quickly. “That’s not right. This is not the complete Heavenly Flame.
Indeed, it was not the complete Heavenly Flame. This was because there was no Origin Flame. Although this Heavenly Flame was mighty, it was just form without substance.
As long as these half-step Martial Emperors used their Law Energy to protect their bodies, they would be able to charge across this horrifying Heavenly Flame. Furthermore, their losses would not be in vain. This was the best time to pursue and attack Xiao Chen and Dugu Ao.
This group of people glared at Chu Chaoyun, the murderous intent in their eyes inevitably showing. The flames of rage blazed in their hearts. However, when they saw the person Chu Chaoyun was confronting, the remaining eight half-step Martial Emperors could not help changing their expressions at the same time.
A high-ranked Blood Demon?
That mysterious red-clad man clearly gave off the aura of a high-ranked Blood Demon. Furthermore, there was no presence of any other bloodline. This was a bona fide Demon expert and not a mixed-blood.
Strange, why is there a high-ranked Blood Demon here? This question popped into everyone’s head. The place where such a high-ranked Blood Demon should be appearing is the Astral Battlefield.
Seeing this group of half-step Martial Emperors with heavy auras and strong murderous intent pause, Chu Chaoyun smiled faintly and asked indifferently, “What’s wrong? Are you not going to give chase? If you do not, you really won’t be able to catch up.”
The group of half-step Martial Emperors came to their senses and recalled that their main purpose was to chase down Xiao Chen and prevent him from obtaining the Flower of Life.
It was not to stop here and waste time with people who were not related. As for why a Demon Race expert was here, that was not something for them to worry about.
“You! We will return to settle this later.”
The half-step Martial Emperors glared at Chu Chaoyun before soaring away, heading in the direction Xiao Chen had taken and giving chase frantically.
“Chu Chaoyun, do you really think that I do not dare to do anything to you?” the red-clad person asked coldly. He felt ignored when he saw Chu Chaoyun allowing himself to be distracted, stopping the half-step Martial Emperors from chasing Xiao Chen despite being in a confrontation with him.
Chu Chaoyun slowly returned the sword to the sheath on his back. Then, he smiled humbly and said, “Naturally, I do not.”
“Don’t bother playing tricks with me.” The red-clad man said, “I am under the Night Blood Demon Monarch’s orders to come and kill the Azure Emperor’s descendant. Why are you stopping me? Are you trying to oppose the Demon Monarchs?”
Chu Chaoyun bent slightly. As he faced the red-clad person’s overbearing behavior, he remained calm, saying indifferently, “I do not dare. I am just here to tell you that you have a new mission, and you now need to depart immediately.”
The red-clad man smiled coldly and retorted, “Do you think that I am a fool? Do you think that I would not know if there is a mission? In the eighteen realms of the Deep Abyss Demonic World, only the Night Blood Demon Monarch can command me and give me missions. My current mission is to kill the Azure Emperor’s descendant. Anyone who stops me is being disrespectful to the Demon Monarchs and has to die!”
As the red-clad person spoke, he walked over, and murderous intent flashed in his eyes. He approached overbearingly and said, “Break your arm yourself first, and I can pretend that this never happened. Otherwise, if the Night Blood Demon Monarch comes to know of you, you will not be able to survive even if you have nine lives.”
Chu Chaoyun did not move. When the red-clad man was about to rage, a cold black medallion suddenly appeared in Chu Chaoyun’s hand.
“The Dark Medallion!”
The sight of this medallion greatly startled the overbearing red-clad man. He was in disbelief and no longer exuded that arrogant bullying zeal that he had earlier.
The Dark Medallion. Its bearer was definitely under the orders of the highest levels of the Dark Church. These people held the position of envoy, and even the Demon Monarchs had to obey when seeing them.
“Greetings to Lord Envoy,” the red-clad man said in a low voice as he bowed with a gleam of dissatisfaction in his eyes.
Chu Chaoyun’s eyes narrowed as he smiled faintly. “You are too polite. However, Ye Wuxin, you should be saying ‘greetings to Envoy Chaoyun’ and not just Lord Envoy.”
[TL Note: The name Ye Wuxin can be translated to Heartless Night. This might be related to the Demon Monarch’s title, Night Blood Demon Monarch. The word for night is in front in both cases and might be used as a family name.]
The red-clad man, Ye Wuxin, suppressed the rage in his heart and said, “Yes, Ye Wuxin greets Envoy Chaoyun.”
“Thank you for your politeness!” Chu Chaoyun smiled faintly and continued, “Ye Wuxin, heed the orders. You are to rush to the Astral Battlefield and suppress Di Wuque and the other younger generation of the Kunlun Continent, preventing them from rising up.”
When Ye Wuxin heard that, it boggled him. “You must be joking. We need to activate the talents of the Demon Race with King Grade bloodlines for that group of so-called outstanding talents from the Kunlun Continent?”
Chu Chaoyun’s tone remained calm as he said at an unhurried pace, “This is your mission. Whether you believe it or not, it is up to you.”
“You have the Dark Medallion. I’ll believe you for now. However, if I find out that you lied to me, I will definitely not spare you.”
Although Ye Wuxin was not satisfied at leaving like that, Chu Chaoyun held the Dark Medallion. Thus, Ye Wuxin had to rush to the Astral Battlefield immediately.
“How could I? No matter how bold I am, I would not dare to use the Dark Medallion as a joke,” Chu Chaoyun said softly with a sincere expression.
Ye Wuxin also surmised that Chu Chaoyun would not be that bold. After snorting coldly, he turned into a clump of scarlet light that bounced around and disappeared from Chu Chaoyun’s sight in the time it took for one to blink.
After Chu Chaoyun watched the other party leave, he muttered, “Those Demons with the King Grade bloodline are indeed difficult to deal with. Just this speed alone, not many within the same generation would be able to keep up with it.
“However, he is still rather stupid.”
Chu Chaoyun smiled faintly and brought the Dark Medallion in his hand up to his lips and gently blew on it. The so-called Dark Medallion, which made Ye Wuxin quail, turned into a pile of ashes and scattered with the wind.
If Ye Wuxin were here, he would have realized that Chu Chaoyun tricked him into leaving obediently and even bowing to him. By then, he would probably have vomited blood out of frustration.
With this, Chu Chaoyun helped Xiao Chen by sending off a strong enemy with a few words.
On the other side, the eight half-step Martial Emperors frantically gave chase. However, after missing their opportunity, combined with the complicated geography of the Human-Demon Paradise, they lost track of Xiao Chen.
The half-step Martial Emperors split up to search but could not find anything. They were frustrated and angry, so they turned back to look for trouble with Chu Chaoyun. However, they could not figure out where he ran to, either.
Having failed in both endeavors, they became even more frustrated than before.
“Never mind. Let’s not chase him anymore. We will just wait for him outside. The Human-Demon Paradise will close in ten days. At that time, it will eject the people inside. The instant he comes out, we will take him down without speaking any nonsense to him,” one of the remaining experts from the Three Holy Lands said coldly.
