Chapter 1934: The Xi Emperor (One)
"Jian Chen, who is this little whore? How'd you gain her attention?"
Fairy Hao Yue stared at Yaxi Lian as she spoke on the floating gardens above the platforms.
"She's the commander of the seventh army from the Empyrean Demon Cult…" Afterwards, Jian Chen told her the rough details of the war between the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian and the Empyrean Demon Cult. However, he hid the fact that a Godking from the Daoist Sect of Calm Clouds had ambushed him.
"I never thought she'd be a commander of the nine armies of the Empyrean Demon Cult. This time, the Empyrean Demon Cult really has made some extremely big moves. They've split their nine armies into three to attack the southern, northern, and western regions. It's such a big move that just the three vice-leaders in the branch of the Cloud Plane definitely would not have been behind it."
"That is because if they don't control it well, the outcome will be extremely severe. Not a single one of the three vice-leaders can afford to take the blame. This is probably related to the great elder of the Empyrean Demon Cult," Tian Shuang said sternly.
Even someone as powerful as her became serious when the Empyrean Demon Cult was mentioned.
Afterwards, Tian Shuang looked at fairy Hao Yue and said sternly, "Sister Hao Yue, listen to me. It's best if you don't take part in the matters regarding the Empyrean Demon Cult."
Fairy Hao Yue glanced at Tian Shuang after hearing that. She said, "Sister Tian Shuang, you should understand me. Do you think I'm a person who fears death? When I want to do something, no one can stop me. Not even my father."
With that, fairy Hao Yue looked at Jian Chen once again. She said, "Jian Chen, the wounds that were on your body possessed traces of laws on the level of Godkings, but it doesn't seem like they came from the little whore. It's not that I'm looking down on you, but with your current strength, that little whore can finish you off without the slightest effort, and you wouldn't be able to put up a fight at all. Yet, the wounds on you clearly came from a battle against a Godking. Were there other Godkings from the Empyrean Demon Cult who fought against you?" A vicious light flickered through fairy Hao Yue's eyes, but no one sensed it.
Jian Chen shook his head and said with a rather sunken face, "It's not the Emyrean Demon Cult, but someone from my own side. However, I will personally settle this matter."
Fairy Hao Yue did not delve into the matter seeing how Jian Chen was unwilling to elaborate. She reached out with her hand and Yaxi Lian, who was trapped in mid-air, immediately flew before her. She stared at fairy Hao Yue in both humiliation and anger.
With Yaxi Lian's status in the Empyrean Demon Cult, even the other eight commanders had to treat her politely, yet she had been humiliated like this today.
Even though she was a Nine-tailed Heavenly Fox and naturally skilled in charm, she was not as sexual as other people described her to be. As a matter of fact, she had never shown herself to a single man before Jian Chen for cultivation. Even when she absorbed the vitality of some men, she would just plant her head against theirs.
Only Jian Chen had been an exception due to the special characteristics of the energy within him. It was extremely powerful and filled with a power of destruction, so Yaxi Lian did not dare to devour it so easily. She could not find any other method, so she decided to absorb it through the method of balancing yin and yang. That was why she had revealed herself before Jian Chen. She wanted to control Jian Chen's mind using her natural charm as a Nine-tailed Heavenly Fox so that she could get him to cooperate.
As a result, although Yaxi Lian was a Nine-tailed Heavenly Fox, she had always maintained her purity and was very proud.
Yet now, fairy Hao Yue had actually dangled her naked self in the middle of the air in public, allowing countless people to look and admire her body. It was impossible for her to endure something like that since she had never shown herself off to a man before Jian Chen.
Everything that had happened today would definitely remain as a permanent stain to her name.
However, Hao Yue was also a terrifying Primordial realm expert, so even though she felt absolutely furious, she did not dare to say anything. She only stared at fairy Hao Yue furiously.
However, she had already buried this hatred deep within her heart.
Fairy Hao Yue directly ignored Yaxi Lian's anger. She said to Jian Chen, "How do you want this little whore to die?"
"Sister Hao Yue…" Tian Shuang hesitated as she became slightly worried. She really did not wish for fairy Hao Yue to get involved with the grievances of the Empyrean Demon Cult.
The Empyrean Demon Cult was simply too powerful. A single branch on the Cloud Plane had led to such a bloody storm. Even they, the empires, did not dare to wipe them out directly. They could only block them and protect their own territory.
Even the organisations that stood at the apex of the Cloud Plane did not dare to do anything to the Empyrean Demon Cult.
Jian Chen glanced at Tian Shuang and sank into his thoughts. He said after a while, "Fairy Hao Yue, I want to keep her alive for now. The Empyrean Demon Cult is currently waging war against the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian. Keeping a commander as a hostage might be extremely useful to the situation."
Fairy Hao Yue glanced at Jian Chen deeply and smiled slightly, "Alright then. Since you want to keep this little whore alive, I'll spare her. I've already sealed up her cultivation, so she can't use her strength as a Godking at all. As a result, you don't need to worry about any threats from her. You can leave her by your side so that she can serve you in the next few days. You can enjoy this little bitch."
Jian Chen let out a breath of relief when he heard fairy Hao Yue's words. In reality, he did not wish to see fairy Hao Yue fall out with the Empyrean Demon Cult because of him, as it would basically mean he doomed her.
However, fairy Hao Yue's words towards the end made Jian Chen speechless. He discovered that after fairy Hao Yue had recovered her strength, she seemed to develop a hobby of toying around with people, making her seem completely different from her cold and stern past self.
Tian Shuang also stared at fairy Hao Yue strangely. If it were not for the fact that she had heard it herself, she would not believe her sister Hao Yue could actually say something like that.
"Jian Chen is actually able to converse with the Primordial realm expert so casually. What is his background?" The emperor stood to one side as he constantly guessed at Jian Chen's identity. He had already thought through all the peak organisations he knew on the Cloud Plane.
Fairy Hao Yue's previous words had been deeply embedded in his head.
If roping in Jian Chen could really allow the Xuandao Empire to rise up, then he really would be interested in betrowthing his two daughters to Jian Chen.
Suddenly, the emperor's face changed. He took out a jade talisman from his Space Ring with a flip of his hand and immediately extended the senses of his soul into it.
Afterwards, a sliver of helplessness appeared on his face.
"Ancestor, please," the emperor passed the talisman to Tian Shuang.
Tian Shuang also extended the senses of her soul into the jade talisman after accepting it. She sighed gently after learning its contents, "Who knows what this Xi Emperor is doing now. Do what he asked for. We can't disobey him and disrespect him over something as small as this."
"Sister Tian Shuang, what is wrong?" Fairy Hao Yue asked curiously.
"It's a message from the Xi Emperor of the Xi Empire. The Xi Emperor wants all the empires in the northern region to close off their regional teleportation formations. Sigh, ever since he became emperor, who knows how many times this has happened already. But every time he asks for us to close the teleportation formations, there will be deaths of expert from the imperial family, personally slain by the Xi Emperor. And there are plenty of Primordial realm experts among them," Tian Shuang sighed gently. When she mentioned the Xi Emperor, angst appeared in her eyes.
"What? This Xi Emperor will even kill Primordial realm experts of the imperial family?" Fairy Hao Yue was slightly stunned.
"Exactly. Who knows what the Xi Emperor is trying to do. Ever since he ascended to the position of emperor, the imperial family of the Xi Empire hasn't gotten any peace. Not only has the Xi Emperor killed a lot of Infinite Primes, but he has even killed most of the other princes. There are only one or two of them left from over a dozen in the past. They all fear the Xi Emperor dearly," said Tian Shuang.
Fairy Hao Yue remained silent for quite some time after hearing that. She felt that the Xi Emperor had simply gone mad. He had even killed so many Infinite Primes that belonged to his own family. All of these experts would be worshipped ancestors wherever they went.
Jian Chen also felt shocked. Infinite Primes were existences that he could only look up to. They were peak experts. Once a divine kingdom possessed an Infinite Prime, they would immediately be elevated to the status of empire.
However, from Tian Shuang's words, Infinite Primes did not seem to be that valuable at all since the Xi Emperor had killed a lot of them just by himself.
This was simply too shocking.
At this moment, terrifying shockwaves of energy swept across the sky above the imperial capital. A transparent, blue barrier had suddenly appeared in the sky.
The barrier seemed thin, but the energy it contained was so terrifying that it shocked even Jian Chen.
Tian Shuang stared at the energy barrier, and she became very stern. She said, "That's the Heavenly Disorder Array at the capital. I never thought the Xi Emperor would actually activate this formation. The Xi Empire has sealed off the entire northern region now. No one can leave, and even teleportation formations are rendered useless, including the Disc of Heavenly Ways. Looks like the Xi Emperor is moving against someone important."
At this moment, the power of laws in the surroundings suddenly became chaotic. Deafening booms rang out from outer space, where the terrifying shockwaves of energy swept out like storms. It caused space to twist and shatter, creating great cracks.
Jian Chen gazed over. In the distant outer space, he could vaguely see two bodies of light completely condensed from laws constantly collided with each other. Each collision would erupt with devastating might. It was truly startling.
"That's a battle between two Chaotic Primes," fairy Hao Yue also stared at the sky as she said nonchalantly.
"One of them is the Xi Emperor, while the other one is an ancestral emperor of the Xi Empire, who is also the current Xi Emperor's father." Tian Shuang recognised the two of them with a single glance. She sighed gently, "Every time the Xi Emperor wants to move against someone important, the ancestral emperor would come to stop him. Who knows how many times the two of them have fought since he became the current Xi Emperor."
