This figure wearing pink clothing was a demonic disciple of the Netherworld.
There were many races in the Netherworld Realm, with each of them having their own sects and forces. As such, some demonic races had humanoid shape. Compared to other races, demons that had humanoid appearance had a slightly higher intelligence.
This disciple of the Netherworld Realm wearing pink clothes and with a face full of beard was a member of one of those humanoid demonic races present in the Netherworld Realm.
Earlier, just as Song Shuhang was watching that formidable battle between the lustrous scholar and that demon of the Tribulation Transcender rank, he saw various types of demons die due to the repercussions of the battle between the two powerhouses. Amongst them was also a large number of demons similar to this disciple wearing pink clothes.
Actually, Song Shuhang had killed three similar humanoid demons while he was on the mysterious island. It was just that he had forgotten about this event.
Since the space passage at the bottom of the ancient well enlarged, this demonic disciple of the Netherworld Realm discovered its presence and came over after traveling through it.
But as soon as it came out, it sensed a disgusting aura. It was the aura of buddhist cultivation techniques and the light of virtue.
It swiftly glanced at the disciples of the Faraway Wandering Temple inside the Jingang Immortal Cave. Amongst cultivators, the most disgusting ones were precisely these baldies that naturally repelled the demons of the Netherworld. In addition, the ten or so baldies before its eyes were all of the Fourth Stage Realm, and thus difficult to deal with.
Next, its vision shifted to Song Shuhang, who was standing at the entrance of the cave. Although he wasn't a baldie, the thick light of virtue protecting his body was more disgusting than that of a senior monk.
But more importantly, that guy—whose long hair reached until the waist—was only at the Third Stage Realm. In addition, he was obstructing the entrance and blocking its only path of escape!
If it didn't kill that guy with long hair, it would truly do a disservice to the whole Netherworld Realm!
Thereupon, the demonic disciple of the Netherworld sneered and raised its two hands. Then, more of that black sludge gushed out of the ancient well, spreading to each corner of the Jingang Immortal Cave.
This caused all the disciples of the Faraway Wandering Temple present there to be momentarily occupied.
As such, the demonic disciple seized the opportunity and dashed toward Song Shuhang. Next, it took out a copper rod and waved it around, shouting, "Drop dead!"
The language it spoke didn't belong to any of the languages spoken on Earth. However, one could understand the meaning of its words after they were spread around through mental energy.
A demon of the Netherworld of the Third Stage rank. Song Shuhang also sensed the realm of the demon.
Even if they were both at the Third Stage Realm, the opposite party could rely on that filthy and evil energy gushing out the ancient well to empower itself. Its fighting capacity was comparable to that of a cultivator of the Fourth Stage Realm.
If the filthy energy of the Netherworld wasn't properly dealt with, even a Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor would hesitate to get involved in hand-to-hand combat with this demon, so as to avoid getting contaminated by the foul energy of the Netherworld.
Thanks to the strengthening of the energy of the Netherworld, the speed of the demonic disciple was very quick, to the point that Song Shuhang could only see a series of afterimages.
Innate skill of the Eye Aperture! Song Shuhang activated the innate skill of his Eye Aperture. The 'Expert Sight' innate skill.
Then, just like that 'bullet time' visual effect seen in the movie 'The Matrix', the speed of the demonic disciple of the Netherworld immediately slowed down in Song Shuhang's eyes. The same speed that caused him to see only afterimages earlier had now reduced to the point of being slower than the speed of an average person.
Under the effects of the innate skill of his Eye Aperture, Song Shuhang discovered that the stance of the demonic disciple of the Netherworld had at least six weak spots!
Amongst them, the largest one was situated in the place between its waist and stomach.
Song Shuhang slowly took out Venerable White's Meteor Sword and operated the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Innate True Liquid inside his body.
He was planning to use a unique sword technique, the ❮Holy Light Sword Technique❯. This sword technique was similar to buddhist techniques and had the power to subdue foul and evil energy.
Song Shuhang mentally read the chant of the technique. 'Holy light, that wicked one seems worth fighting!'
Although the power of the technique would increase quite a lot if he were to read it aloud, he was too ashamed to do that. Perhaps his foreign disciple 'Joseph' would be totally fine with reading the chant of this technique aloud?
❮Holy Light Sword Technique—Evil Slashing Holy Light Sword!❯
At this time, the demonic disciple was getting closer and closer.
White and holy light appeared on Meteor Sword's blade as Song Shuhang stepped forward, using the ❮Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk❯ to head toward the disciple of the Netherworld.
Just as the two of them were about to meet head-on, Song Shuhang's body twisted. Since he had mastered the ❮Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk❯ footwork, he was able to dodge the rod attack of that demonic disciple of the Netherworld with ease.
At the same time, Song Shuhang's body slightly bent just like a bow and his strength exploded! He grabbed Meteor Sword with both hands and used the 'Evil Slashing Holy Light Sword', horizontally slashing toward the place between the waist and stomach of the demonic disciple.
"Ahaha, what an idiot! Did you really think this is my weak spot? That place is where my defense is the strongest! You are done for!" The demonic disciple grinned.
It wasn't afraid of Song Shuhang attacking the place between its waist and stomach. As a matter of fact, dragon scales suddenly covered its body in the next moment, with the scales covering the place Shuhang was attacking being the thickest.
I'm the most favored disciple of Cave Lord Dragon, and my body was blessed with their defensive power. How can the sword attack of a small cultivator of the Third Stage such as yourself break through it? The demonic disciple grinned and twisted its body, swaying the copper rod backward and aiming for Song Shuhang's back.
But right at this time, Meteor Sword reached its waist area, and the blade of the sword bumped into the dragon scales.
Song Shuhang faintly smiled. Strongest defense?
Meteor Sword slashed horizontally.
Soon after, the dragon scales that the demonic disciple of the Netherworld was so proud of were cut open like a thin paper. Meteor Sword's strength didn't diminish, and it ended up cutting the rest of the body of that demonic disciple.
That white and holy sword qi belonging to the ❮Holy Light Sword Technique❯ cut into the body of the demonic disciple of the Netherworld. Soon after, the sword qi exploded while inside its body, bursting out from each part of its body!
"Aaaaaah... how is this possible..." the demonic disciple of the Netherworld called out pitifully.
Its body had been cut into two halves, but no fresh blood spurted out. The strength of the holy light had purified all the blood.
Song Shuhang elegantly flicked Meteor Sword.
Meteor Sword was Senior White's sword. It would be close to a joke if the sword of a Venerable couldn't even slash through the defense of a Third Stage rank demonic disciple of the Netherworld Realm.
Actually, Song Shuhang didn't even need to use Venerable White's sword. If he were to use his 'treasured saber Broken Tyrant', he would have still cut open the body that demonic disciple. After all, Broken Tyrant could also cut the physical body of cultivators of the Fourth Stage. The only problem was that it would have been a bit troublesome to slash open the body of this demonic disciple of the Netherworld without the strengthening effect of the ❮Holy Light Sword Technique❯, making it difficult to kill it in one blow.
In addition, the hardness of that layer of dragon scales that suddenly appeared on its body had perhaps already surpassed the Fourth Stage rank.
"Aaaaah! You unexpectedly dared to kill me!" the demonic disciple of the Netherworld Realm wailed. While speaking, it used the last bit of its strength to active one of its innate skills.
After activating this innate skill, its body disappeared. It was an ability that allowed the user to become invisible. At this time, a layer of ghastly mist that human cultivators couldn't see had appeared next to its body. At the same time, the hands of the demonic disciple of the Netherworld turned into two skinny claws.
Unfortunately, it had no way of escaping this time. Even if it had managed to become invisible, the power of the holy light, which was continuously spraying out of its body, was exposing its position.
Such being the case, what was it planning to do?
"I curse you, I curse you in the capacity of a creature of the Netherworld Ream! I curse you to be infected by the filth of the Netherworld Realm and fall for eternity!" The husky voice of the demonic disciple of the Netherworld Realm echoed.
A cursed rune came out of the ghastly mist shrouding its body and rushed toward Song Shuhang.
It was an innate skill belonging to the humanoid creatures of the Netherworld Realm. If they got killed while shrouded in this 'ghastly mist', they could display this curse-type innate skill. The higher their realm, the higher the power of the curse.
As soon as he saw the cursed rune, Song Shuhang got a bit sad. How wonderful would it be if his ghost spirit was still here! After undergoing a mutation, his ghost spirit could eat resentful ghosts and curses to increase its strength. If the ghost spirit was still here, it could have gulped down that curse at once.
Of course, the current him wasn't afraid of such a simple curse.
Song Shuhang threw a fist, ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯ Number One!
The light of virtue shrouding his body turned into a three meters tall golden giant that wrapped him up from head to toe. Then, it threw a fist alongside him.
The intermittent sound of buddhist scriptures, as well as the cry of a whale, echoed midair. The cry of the whale was already giving signs of transforming into the cry of a dragon.
Just as the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯ bumped into the black cursed rune, the latter was smashed to pieces.
The demon subduing fist could vanquish demons and monsters, and could annihilate these low-level cursed runes.
"Aaaaa~ disgusting creature!" The demonic disciple of the Netherworld returned to being visible, and had no other trick up its sleeve to counterattack.
The aura of its body slowly dispersed amidst its resentful cries. It had thoroughly died.
In the rear, Daoist Priest Horizon put away his long sword and faintly smiled at Song Shuhang.
Yu Jiaojiao also dispersed her defensive magical technique.
Su Clan's Sixteen also put away her short saber. At this time, Song Shuhang was already different than that rookie cultivator that had just stepped on the path of cultivation.
Song Shuhang sized up the body of this demonic disciple of the Netherworld Realm.
He felt that it was very similar to a resentful ghost. Therefore, he wondered if he could ferry its soul to the afterworld.
Well then, should he give it a try?
After all, it wasn't like it was going to cost him money to ferry its soul to the afterworld.
Song Shuhang joined his palms together and silently read the chant of ❮Ksitigarbha's Soul Ferrying Scripture❯. Then, he poked the body of the demonic disciple with his right hand and used the 'Soul Ferrying Technique'.
The surrounding disciples of the Faraway Wandering Temple looked at Song Shuhang in surprise. It was possible to ferry the souls of demons from the Netherworld?
It was common knowledge that demons of the Netherworld were different from resentful ghosts. Therefore, their souls couldn't be ferried to the afterworld.
But when Song Shuhang tried to ferry that demonic disciple, he seemingly activated a mental brand mark on the body of the opposite party.
In the next moment, the projection of a black dragon appeared above the body of the demonic disciple of the Netherworld Realm.
It was a lifelike 3D projection.
What appeared was a... very muscular eastern dragon.
What should have been a long, slender, and elegant eastern dragon... had now turned into a stocky creature. In addition, it seemed a bit deformed as well; it only had its two front claws.
What is this thing? Song Shuhang heightened his vigilance.
Why did the projection of this muscular dragon appear after he used ❮Ksitigarbha's Soul Ferrying Scripture❯ and displayed the Soul Ferrying Technique?
The lantern-sized eyes of the deformed muscular dragon closely stared at Song Shuhang. Then, it roared, "Evil survivor of the Jingang Temple, I've finally found you!"
Evil survivor of the Jingang Temple?
Song Shuhang had a sudden realization. As expected, his previous guess was correct. The ❮Ksitigarbha's Soul Ferrying Scripture❯ was related to the Jingang Temple!
