The rest of the Devil-eyed Blue Lion Race’s experts had just caught Lan Bowei. When they turned and saw this sight, all of them were petrified on the spot.
One of the people who had exploded to their deaths from the four odd beasts’ attack was a peak late-Ninth Order Emperor Realm, while the other four were mid-level Emperor Realms!
Yet-! The remaining Devil-eyed Blue Lion Race’s experts’ faces turned ugly.
Even Liu Xiaoqing and her three Black Wolf Race guardians were dumbfounded.
“It’s you?!” Lan Bowei stared at Huang Xiaolong and the four odd beasts behind him. Apprehension was written all over his face.
He didn’t know until now that finger force attack, in the beginning, was Huang Xiaolong, but that punch just now, that familiar power, made him realize it.
“Who are you lot?!” Lan Bowei couldn’t resist asking.
Huang Xiaolong shook his head, replying casually, “Who I am is not important, and you don’t need to know. Originally, I didn’t plan on killing you all, but now…”
Now that a feud was formed between him and the Devil-eyed Blue Lion Empire, Lan Bowei and these people couldn’t leave.
Huang Xiaolong’s words seemed to seal their fates.
“What do you mean? You want to kill me?!” Lan Bowei refused to believe that Huang Xiaolong had the guts to kill him. “I am the Crown Prince of the Devil-eyed Blue Lion Empire. How will you dare to kill me?!”
In the Kingdom of Devil Beasts, others didn’t even have the guts to harm a hair on him with his status and identity, much less kill him.
Thus, Lan Bowei didn’t believe Huang Xiaolong would disregard the consequences and kill him until this point.
Huang Xiaolong stopped talking. He merely raised a finger and signaled the four odd beasts to attack.
The remaining several Devil-eyed Blue Lion Race’s experts were completely deterred. Two high-level Emperor Realm experts grabbed Lan Bowei in a panic and whispered urgently, “Young Lord, let’s leave first!”
Simultaneously, the other mid-level and low-level Emperor Realm rushed forward to attack the four odd beasts instead, attempting to delay them to make time for Lan Bowei to escape.
However, their attempts were futile. With a sweep of the four odd beasts’ claws, all of them were knocked back miserably.
The four odd beasts continued to attack, slamming their claws at Lan Bowei and the two high-level Emperor Realm experts guarding him.
The two Devil-eyed Blue Lion Ancestors protecting Lan Bowei were gripped by fear, but both tried desperately to fight off the four odd beasts’ attacks.
“Young Lord, quickly run!”
Until the last moments, they protected Lan Bowei.
However, they barely finished their words when the four odd beasts’ paws squashed into the ground.
“Uncle Chen!” Lan Bowei shrieked. His crimson eyes were fixed on Huang Xiaolong as he started to attack indiscriminately, “Let’s go to hell together!”
A blue flame appeared on his feet and burned rapidly up his body. In a flicker, Lan Bowei had reverted to his real body of a huge blue lion. There was a fist-sized red pupil between his eyes that emitted an eerie, chilling gleam.
“Blue Lion’s Roar!”
Lan Bowei’s lion mouth opened wide as he let out a heaven-shaking roar, lethal enough to destroy a Second-Order Emperor Realm’s soul. Lan Bowei was trembling and shaking unsteadily after he let out the roar. Blue blood flames seeped out from his body as if he was burning his blood’s energy to maintain the blue flames. To display his innate skill and kill Huang Xiaolong, he was willing to damage his own body.
The moment Lan Bowei roared, his huge lion’s claw was slapping down on Huang Xiaolong’s hand.
Hence, even though his roar failed to destroy Huang Xiaolong’s soul and merely jarred it for a split second, his lion claws could turn Huang Xiaolong’s head into mincemeat.
In a split second before Lan Bowei’s lion claws came tearing down, the Moon Jade Heavenly Spiral Shell in Huang Xiaolong’s consciousness emitted a burst of silver light. Hence, Huang Xiaolong was not affected by the lion’s roar and raised his arm to meet Lan Bowei’s claws.
A loud bang shook the surroundings.
Lan Bowei was thrown into the air then smashed heavily into the distant mountain peak. Rocks and gravel fell from the shattered mountain peak.
In a flicker, Huang Xiaolong appeared right above Lan Bowei.
“You, how could you?” Lan Bowei yelled unwillingly, and his lion eyes widened with disbelief. A mere mid-Ninth Order Heavenly Monarch Huang Xiaolong was not affected by his Blue Lion’s Roar.
Huang Xiaolong’s three supreme godheads, True Dragon Physique, and Ascending Devil Physique’s power were stimulated to the extreme as he punched out with his fists.
Mountains shattered, but Lan Bowei’s voice was completely cut off.
However, precisely at this moment, a streak of blue shadow shot out from Lan Bowei’s corpse, straight towards Huang Xiaolong. It was too fast that Huang Xiaolong couldn’t even react.
The blue shadow disappeared into Huang Xiaolong’s body in an instant.
The moment the blue shadow drilled into Huang Xiaolong’s body, a strong uncomfortable feeling alarmed him.
“Blue Soul’s Curse!” In the distance, several voices exclaimed in unison.
The shout came from several directions; Gao Changran, Wang Fanning, as well as Lu Xiaoqing, and her group.
“Blue Soul’s Curse?” Huang Xiaolong was completely baffled.
Gao Changran quickly explained, “Your…” he managed to stop himself in time as he glanced in Lu Xiaoqing’s direction, then went on, “Lord, the Blue Soul’s Curse is an ancient inheritance of the devil beasts. This kind of curse is extremely vicious, and it was said that there is nothing in the world that could erase this curse. Those who are cursed by this technique would be tortured day and night by the curse’s devouring power.”
Listening to Gao Changran’s explanation, Huang Xiaolong tried using the Heavenly Hall’s purification powers to get rid of the curse. Huang Xiaolong’s body was enshrouded in a cocoon of radiant light, but when the light vanished, he discovered the Blue Soul’s Curse was still inside his body. No matter how many times he used the Heavenly Hall’s purification power to erase the curse, it only managed to restrict the Blue Soul’s Curse’s devouring power to a small area.
When the Heavenly Hall’s purification power proved ineffective, Huang Xiaolong tried to get rid of the curse with the four chaos lightning pools’ lightning power. The result was the same. He even used the heart of hell and Netherworld King’s Jade, but none of them were effective against the Blue Soul’s Curse from devouring his energy.
Huang Xiaolong even tried using grandmist worm condensed with Grandmist Parasitic Medium to expel the Blue Soul’s Curse but to no avail.
“What ways can I use to get rid of the Blue Soul’s Curse?” Huang Xiaolong asked Gao Changran.
Gao Changran answered that no known method could expel the Blue Soul’s Curse… In other words, there were no ways to get rid of it.
“Lord, according to legend, the Myriad Curses Devil Stele can erase the Blue Soul’s Curse.” Gao Changran quickly replied.
Next Chapter Huang Xiaolong was stupefied for a moment, “The Myriad Curses Devil Stele!?”
“That’s right. The Myriad Curses Devil Stele is the origin of all curses. If you obtain the Myriad Curses Devil Stele and become its master, not only the Blue Soul’s Curse, even the more terrifying Skull Devil Curse can be erased.” The Black Wolf Race’s Lu Xiaoqing interjected.
Huang Xiaolong shifted his gaze to Lu Xiaoqing.
Lu Xiaoqing took a deep breath and looked straight back at Huang Xiaolong with sincerity as she spoke, “I really do know, the rough location of the Myriad Curses Devil Stele. I can tell you, and we can recognize you as our master, but you have to promise me one thing.”
Huang Xiaolong’s inquiring gaze turned sharp as he spoke, “You should understand one thing here that it is I who saved your lives. Not to mention, I can also search your soul like Lan Bowei planned to do earlier. That way, I still would learn the whereabouts of the Myriad Curses Devil Stele. You are not qualified to bargain with me.”
Lu Xiaoqing remained calm. “Yes, you did save us, but your goal is also the Myriad Curses Devil Stele. Although you can search my soul like Lan Bowei, I can destroy part of my memories to make sure you won’t find clues about the Myriad Curses Devil Stele’s location.”
Huang Xiaolong’s gaze remained fixed on Lu Xiaoqing as he nudged, “Speak, what request do you have?”
“I’ll tell you the whereabouts of the Myriad Curses Devil Stele’s location, but you must promise me to avenge our Black Wolf Race and obliterate the Devil-eyed Blue Lion Empire.” Lu Xiaoqing barely finished her words without gritting her teeth. At the mention of Devil-eyed Blue Lion Empire, hatred roiled in her obsidian pupils.
Huang Xiaolong smiled knowingly. He shook his head and said, “According to what I know, the Devil-eyed Blue Lion Empire’s Great Emperor is a Sovereign Realm expert. Do you think I can kill a Sovereign Realm expert?”
Before arriving at the Eternal Devil City, Huang Xiaolong had taken the time to learn about the Kingdom of Devil Beasts’ nine empires from Gao Changran. So, he was not completely ignorant of the strengths of the nine empires’ Great Emperors.
The Devil-eyed Blue Lion Empire’s Great Emperor was called Lan Chong, a Sovereign Realm expert comparable to the Massacring Gods Gate’s Old Ancestor Chu Han.
Even though Huang Xiaolong had the City of Eternity, Heavenly Hall, and the four odd beasts, Huang Xiaolong did not have the confidence to claim he could kill this level of existence.
Lu Xiaoqing hesitated and took a step back, “Then, you promise me that you will annihilate the Devil-eyed Blue Lion Empire before you die.”
She was aware it was difficult for the current Huang Xiaolong to kill an existence like Lan Chong.
Huang Xiaolong shook his head and refused again. “I can only promise you that I will help you kill the Devil-eyed Blue Lion Empire’s important higher echelons and core disciples.”
The Devil-eyed Blue Lion Empire controls about one-tenth of the whole Kingdom of Devil Beasts. Huang Xiaolong couldn’t go slaughtering one-tenth of the Kingdom of Devil Beasts.
Lu Xiaoqing nodded her head in agreement, “I’ll take it!”
In truth, the Devil-eyed Blue Lion Empire would get destroyed, sooner or later, after their important higher echelons and core disciples were killed, divided, and swallowed up by other empires. It was the same as destroying the Devil-eyed Blue Lion Empire.
Lu Xiaoqing subsequently requested Huang Xiaolong to swear an oath.
After Huang Xiaolong had sworn his oath, Lu Xiaoqing honestly told Huang Xiaolong the Myriad Curses Devil Stele’s location.
“The Cursed Forest?” Huang Xiaolong was dumbfounded for a moment.
“Yes, it’s at the Cursed Forest.” Lu Xiaoqing affirmed, nodding her head to emphasize her words. “More accurately, it’s at the ice lake on the north side of the Cursed Forest.”
The ice lake on the north side of the Cursed Forest! Huang Xiaolong inwardly repeated to himself.
Though the location had yet to be confirmed, it was more than enough for Huang Xiaolong, who possessed the Blood Eye Devil Stele.
If the Myriad Curses Devil Stele could really be found on the northern side of the Cursed Forest, Huang Xiaolong would manage to pinpoint the Myriad Curses Devil Stele’s location based on the resonance of his Blood Eye Devil Stele with the Myriad Curses Devil Stele, as long as he entered within a certain range.
However, the Cursed Forest itself made Huang Xiaolong frown.
The Kingdom of Devil Beasts’ devil beasts and the Devil Race had always been on unfriendly terms. Thus entering deep into the Kingdom of Devil Beasts was a highly risky activity. Moreover, the Cursed Forest was at the deepest region of the Kingdom of Devil Beasts and was known as one of the most perilous lands.
The Cursed Forest, as its name indicated, was a cursed forest. According to some people, every inch of land and tree of the Cursed Forest contained the power of the curse. When this power of curse entered the body, it was tough to expel.
Moreover, the further north of the Cursed Forest one went, the more powerful the curse power was. A peak late-Tenth Order Emperor Realm expert would think twice before venturing in because he would have a hard time expelling the curse power from his body. In truth, even a Sovereign Realm expert would have to exert a lot of effort to expel the curse power out of his body if contaminated.
Seeing Huang Xiaolong frown, Gao Changran added, “Lord, I know something that can resist the Cursed Forest’s curse power.”
“Oh,” Huang Xiaolong’s eyes lit up, “What is it?”
“It’s a stone called Heavenly Origin Stone.” Gao Changran went on, “The Heavenly Origin Stone is said to contain a mysterious power. When triggered, it can ignore the Cursed Forest’s cursed power inside the forest. The thing is, the Heavenly Origin Stone is the Heavenly Dragon Bear Race’s inheritance treasure, so…”
Huang Xiaolong raised an eyebrow in surprise.
…Heavenly Dragon Bear Race?
The Heavenly Dragon Bear Race could be considered as the most mysterious among the many devil beasts’ races. They rarely appear, and no one knew where they lived.
“I know where the Heavenly Dragon Bear Race is.” At this time, the Black Wolf Race’s Lu Xiaoqing interjected from the side, but added, “However, the Heavenly Origin Stone is the Heavenly Dragon Bear’s inheritance treasure. I’m afraid that even if we reach their place, they might not be willing to lend it to us.”
Hearing that, Huang Xiaolong asked, “It’s easier if you know where they are. We’ll take things step by step.” With a wave of his hand, he threw out the Tushita Flying Ship.
“Is this the Tushita Flying Ship that was auctioned at the Eternal Devil City some time back?” The high-level Emperor Realm Black Wolf Race expert exclaimed in shock.
“That’s right.” Huang Xiaolong confirmed.
The four Black Wolf Race members were astounded. Some messages related to the Eternal Devil City’s auction had reached the Kingdom of Devil Beasts. Lu Xiaoqing and the others had heard some of it, hence it was no surprise that they knew who had bought the Tushita Flying Ship.
Then, this black-haired young man in front of them was…?!
His Majesty, the Nether King Huang Xiaolong?!
The four of them nearly jumped out of their skin in fright and quickly knelt on their knees.
“Your Majesty, we…” Lu Xiaoqing began.
“Alright, it’s fine. Stand up.” Huang Xiaolong knew what Lu Xiaoqing and the other three wanted to say. “I do not blame you. Now, time is of essence. We should hurry to the Heavenly Dragon Bear Race and get the Heavenly Origin Stone as soon as possible.”
Everyone complied respectfully.
Without delay, Huang Xiaolong and the others quickly boarded the Tushita Flying Ship and departed to the Heavenly Dragon Bear’s hideout. To increase the Tushita Flying Ship’s speed, Huang Xiaolong used high-grade chaos spirit stones as fuel and had put the four odd beasts, twelve-winged Radiance Angels, and one hundred Undead Netherguards at the helm.
“Your Majesty, that Blue Soul’s Curse in that Lan Bowei’s body should be implanted by the Devil-eyed Blue Lion Great Emperor. The moment Lan Bowei died, the Great Emperor Lan Cong would have known about it.” As they set off, Gao Changran whispered to Huang Xiaolong, his face etched with anxiety.
- The Yao Family Elder was already desperate, in his opinion the Chen Family was only a small family, even if he taught a lesson to Chen Xiang this one time, the Chen Family would not dare to say anything. Plus, even if the two families went to war, the Yao Family would definitely not lose.
