The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon opened his eyes from self-cultivation. The young girl beside him dressed in black armor, Demon King of Chaos Fan Ming, eyed him nervously.
“Master, what is the matter?”
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon smiled and nodded. Black qi hovered all around his body, extremely reserved. “All thanks to your Demonic Comprehension Innate Skill, Ming’er, the Prehistoric Heavenly Demon Body has finally advanced. In the future against the Purple Thunder Monster, This Holy Lord stands a better chance.”
“Holy Lord, do not be underestimate him.” Li Xiangfei shook her head.
To the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon that had already suffered several defeats, this was considered understanding through experience.
“Where is Su Shengxiang?”
“She has spent the past several days sneaking around discussing something with other Star Masters.” Fan Ming’s expression was one of disdain.
“This Holy Lord should have killed this bitch back then.” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s eyes were full of coldness. As the grand number one Star Master of the Black Turtle Territory, he had nevertheless been overtaken by a woman. “That idiot Old Monster Dark Rebirth must have given this slut many favors.”
Li Xiangfei sighed almost inaudibly, unclear as to whether this was disappointment or some other reason.
As if she was waiting for this moment, Su Shengxiang daintily walked over from Yan Wudao.
Upon seeing the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon, she put on a charming smile. “Congratulations, Lord Husband. Presumably, the Prehistoric Heavenly Demon Body has already advanced.”
“Ha, ha, Wife Shengxiang is truly modest. This Holy Lord has heard you have gotten along well with other Star Masters these past few days?” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon switched to an insincere smile.
Su Shengxiang covered her lips, smiling and saying: “Many thanks to Lord Husband. The Star Duels’ decisive battle is at hand. Shengxiang merely discussed escape routes with them, nothing more.”
Not only the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon, even Li Xiangfei and Fan Ming showed puzzled expression.
“Shengxiang was merely thinking that since the Purple Thunder Monster has used the pretext of ending the Star Duels to secure Lin Chong and those other first-rate Star Generals, perhaps we can ally with him and climb the mountain together? However, there would be prerequisites. It is easy to say we can kill that Su Xing in the final Star Duel. But if we are defeated, he may spare our lives out of consideration for the Star Generals’ Sisters. Presumably, he is enemies with Maiden Mountain. Maybe we can lend him a hand.”
“Su Shengxiang, are you insane?” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon looked at this woman in astonishment. She was surprisingly thinking of having the Purple Thunder Monster show them mercy. Let alone this standpoint, the Purple Thunder Monster would never let them go for a wish as trifling as ending the Star Duels.
“Lord Husband, do not be angry. This is only Shengxiang’s wishful thinking. When the time comes, we must still see what Su Xing thinks.” Su Shengxiang said.
“Su Xing this, Su Xing that. That man’s name sounds so smooth coming from your lips. You would not happen to be having cold feet and thinking of betraying us, would you?” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon stared fixedly at her.
“Lord Husband is being too cautious. In short, bringing such an idea up does not harm us at all, is that not the case?” Su Shengxiang said.
“What she says makes some sense.” Li Xiangfei muttered. Although this appeared beyond preposterous, with Lin Chong and Wu Song’s imposing personalities, perhaps they actually were ending the Star Duels and were willing to make allies to climb the mountain together. “The Seven Stars Assembly has only seven openings. They truly would have no use for Star Duels.” Fan Ming scoffed.
“What do the others think?” Li Xiangfei asked.
“Yan Wudao and the others do not trust the Purple Thunder Monster either, but that will not stop them from using him to curb the righteousness of the Panther Head and company.”1 Su Shengxiang said.
“Lord Husband, your thoughts?” Su Shengxiang softly asked.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon really wanted to rage at the heavens, dash the mountains, scream the disdainful words, “Su Xing must die.” But when these words were on the tip of his tongue, in the end, he found that he did not even have the breath for this. “Dammit. If that Purple Thunder Monster manages to climb the mountain, he would definitely ally with Maiden Mountain.” As he thought of this, the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon snorted. A cold glint flashed across his eyes, keeping silent.
A small smile flit across Su Shengxiang’s lips.
Time flit by as they trained, instantly passing.
Several months’ time elapsed in the blink of an eye.
Under the call of the Star Duels, Su Xing, Gong Caiwei, Zhao Hanyan, Xi Yue, and the others already entered the range of Maiden Mountain’s legendary “Eight Million Li Maiden Mountain Lake.”
They passed from the “Ink Earth” stuck in eternal night to the “Waiting Watch” filled with moonlight.
They crossed various obstacles in the marsh.
Wherever Su Xing passed, so too did Purple Cloud East Approaches, like an immortal arriving. Along the way, both commoners and cultivators alike stared dumbstruck.
The Eight Million Li Maiden Mountain Lake appeared seemed very large. To cross it would take several dozen days’ time.
On this night, Su Xing had already crossed the Coalesced Dragonpools. They stopped when the distance to the Yu Plains was half a day.
“Tonight, let’s rest here.” Su Xing saw that the environment of this Coalesced Dragonpool was of limitless beauty, clear moonlight, dark blue waters. Innumerable fireflies fluttered over the surface of the lake, appearing quite idyllic.
“Things really turned out as Xinjie anticipated. It appears those Star Masters are truly preparing to fight a decisive battle at the Yu Plains.” Zhao Hanyan brushed her sleeve.
The Coalesced Dragonpools were the last bodies of water in the vicinity of Maiden Mountain. If River Dragon Li Xiangfei was present, she would have the qualifications to battle Lin Yingmei, but things appeared very tranquil. It appeared that the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon had also abandoned this advantageous terrain.
“We cannot be careless.” Gong Caiwei said.
Zhu Sha knew intuitively her intent. She summoned the Five Elements Weather Banner, “Young Su, me and Big Sis will go take a look around for now.” Zhang Yuqi smiled and said.
“Be careful.” Su Xing ordered.
Zhang Yuqi winked. She brought White Wave and dove into the lake. Boatman Zhang Feiyu also spurred her Burning Whale to submerge beneath the water. To a Water General, they were still the most free in the water.
“Speaking of Xinjie, why does she feel they will fight the decisive battle at the Yu Plains?” Zhao Hanyan asked.
“This place is the closest to Maiden Mountain. Its terrain is wide open, and reportedly, it is an ancient battlefield. Perhaps there is no other place better suited than this.”
“Is that so?” Zhao Hanyan nodded.
Su Xing said: “Xinjie, tell Yingmei, Siyou and the others in a moment. There will be no more sparring tonight. Conserve their strength and rest properly to meet tomorrow’s final Star Duel.”
“Young Lord, do you not want a big party with no coverings tonight?2 This is but the last chance before climbing the the mountain.” Wu Xinjie giggled.
“Sure, This Princess has no issue. It may be assumed that darling will be very happy. Caiwei, join in, would you.” Zhao Hanyan teased Gong Caiwei.
The woman in clothes whiter than snow wrinkled her brow. She turned and left.
“The Immortal Hero Princess is angry. Prince Consort, you must quickly take her into your harem. After we ascend the mountain, there will not be such a good chance.” Dong Junqing fanned the flames.
“Rest well tonight, everyone. Save your strength.” Su Xing said.
Seeing Su Xing so deadpan, Dong Junqing quite insipidly twitched her lips. “That mob is completely not worth worrying over.”
“I’m not worried about this.” Su Xing shook his head.
“Maiden Mountain?” Zhao Hanyan discerned his preoccupation.
“Chao Gai made Banzhuang train my martial arts, and she allowed me to enter the Dark Yellow Pagoda to break through to Transforming Star of Annihilation Realm.3 That she did this must mean there is a very powerful enemy. Otherwise, she wouldn’t go through all this trouble.” Su Xing spoke of past events. The closer they drew to Maiden Mountain’s center, the more uneasy he became.
The true face of the heaven-supporting pillar was already before his eyes. Looking from this place, the magnificence he saw would only make a person feel miniscule to the point they felt powerless. Su Xing’s heart had never been so anxious.
Zhao Hanyan held Su Xing’s hand, gazing at him with eyes full of love. Sensing her intentions, Su Xing slowly calmed down.
Just at this moment, there was suddenly a kind of sublime song came over. This sound was pleasant to listen to, but before he could ponder upon it, an enormous explosion broke it off. Then, a water dragon soared into the sky, followed by a heavenly sword of water descending from the sky. The sword pierced through the water dragon, and the powerful destructive force directly split apart the tranquil waters of the Coalesced Dragonpools. The fishes in the lake hopped out one after another.
“That’s Yuqi’s Heavenly Sword.” Su Xing was astonished.
“Is that blowjob girl stirring up trouble? This General shall go take a look.” Dong Junqing activated her True Phoenix Realm without another word, rushing over in that direction.
“Yingmei, Siyou, you two stand guard here. Watch for surprise attacks.” Su Xing turned back to remind the alarmed girls. “Niangzi, Hanyan, and I will go look first.”
“Young Master, be careful.” Lin Yingmei urged.
“You girls, too.”
Su Xing hinted to Hu Niangzi. Thereupon, they used an escape technique with Bright Star Ten Feet of Blue following close behind.
“That seemed to be River Dragon Li Xiangfei’s technique just now. As expected, the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon is not so willing to let go of these advantageous grounds to conduct a sneak attack.” Along the way, Zhao Hanyan spoke.
“He is courting death.” Su Xing sneered.
But things were not exactly as Su Xing had thought.
“The Crystal Dragon palace’s legendary Seventh Princess. This Holy Lord truly did not expect to meet you here.”
Right at this moment, a corner of the Coalesced Dragonpools.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon was full of excitement as he looked down on a young woman.
It has been too long since he last tasted this feeling of towering above others.
As Su Xing expected, the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon indeed did not let go of the maritime terrain of the Coalesced Dragonpools. If the top-notch Water General Li Xiangfei could fight upon the Coalesced Dragonpools, there was no doubt she would be like a tiger that grew wings. However, he was also very aware that facing Su Xing was the sleeptalk of trash. Still, the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon nevertheless wanted to see if he could first sneak attack a few of Su Xing’s isolated Star Generals at the Coalesced Dragonpools, to first kill a few.
However, before Su Xing could arrive, he surprisingly bumped into another Star Master.
This was Long Nü.
Long Nü did not attend the Monster Slaying Conference at all. In the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s eyes, this was tantamount to standing on Su Xing’s side. Upon spotting her surprisingly rushing towards Maiden Mountain alone, the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon would not let go of such a heaven-sent opportunity. Without another word, he had Li Xiangfei and Fan Ming launch an attack.
The results of the battle were obvious.
Although Guardian of Three Mountains Huang Mengrui was one of the Earthly Stars’ Four Heavenly Kinds, her opponent was nevertheless Li Xiangfei upon a naval battlefield. Huang Mengrui staked everything to use her Earth Rank “Three Mountains Broken Seal Sword Array” and finally even charging her Heaven Rank “Luoshen Mountain And Lake Singing,” but she was too late to activate it when Li Xiangfei’s Earth Rank “Fury Of The Ocean” heavily injured her.
“Upon the water, you have no choice but to give up here.” Li Xiangfei said in a low voice.
Long Nü panted. Fan Ming’s attack made her unbearably exhausted, and her whole body was covered in cuts and bruises. Only be relying on her last piece of willpower did she not fall over. She was very aware of the bad end that would result if she fell.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon chuckled.
“What, did that Purple Thunder Monster get bored of playing with you and toss you away. Truly pitiful.”
“Holy Lord, do not waste your breath. Kill her first.” Fan Ming raised her devil claws.
“Kill her then.” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon nodded, his expression suddenly cold beyond comparison.
The Nine Phantasms Ten Banes Capital Demon Swords manifested demonic clouds. Li Xiangfei stirred her White Dragon Sword, churning the Coalesced Dragonpool. The lake water rumbled, mercilessly battering Huang Mengrui and Long Nü. Fan Ming’s devil-qi approached, prepared to strike the finishing blow.
“Forgive me, Mengrui.” Long Nü expressed her regret. Because she was selfish, she did not form an alliance with anyone, leading to this situation.
“Not at all. To have had Long Nü as Mengrui’s master was truly fortunate.” Huang Mengrui smiled, gripping her sword. She cast a glance back at her. Those eyes as clear as water were filled with distress: “But Mengrui was unable to protect you.”
Her long hair flapping, the girl shouted and charged.
The devil claws scratched.
Flying Waterfall Dragon Cry Swords swept out, their sword-lights like water, piercing through the devil-qi. Fan Ming was astonished, not expecting that her martial arts would surprisingly still be at such a level despite her heavy injuries. Several cuts immediately appeared on her own body.
“A deathbed struggle.” Demon King of Chaos flung Huang Mengrui onto the ground.
Just as the Demon King of Chaos was about to end her life, all of a sudden, an enormous sword of water fell from the heavens.
Li Xiangfei raised her White Dragon Sword, blocking the Heavenly Sword.
Huang Mengrui looked.
A white python like a line leapt before them. Then, a beauty emerged from the water like a mermaid, her snow-white skin in the night more beautiful than moonlight.
“Damage Star Zhang Yuqi…”
Huang Mengrui’s heart was suddenly flooded with an indescribable tranquility. Finally, she glanced at Long Nü and subsequently fell into the Star Nest.
