Just then, a sword suddenly appeared behind him.
The demon's merciless eyes were filled with malice as he swung his sword at him.
Just as the demon swung his sword, a figure in grey flashed past behind the Honorable Sir Tianqi and blocked the sword!
The Honorable Sir Tianqi stared blankly into space. He never thought that the person who had just saved his life would turn out to be the one who wanted him dead most of all, the Honorable Poison Master!
The Honorable Poison Master pushed forcefully, causing the enemy to stumble back. He then spoke in an eerie voice without turning his head, "I'm saving your life just this once for that little girl's sake. You'll still have to pay for peeping on something you shouldn't have sooner or later."
The Honorable Sir Tianqi's mouth twitched. Could it be that I no longer have to worry about this old fart's relentless threats and pursuit as long as the Gu girl is around?
Nevertheless, the Honorable Sir Tianqi does not have the time to squabble with the Honorable Poison Master during the battle. He quickly concealed his emotions and once again devoted himself to the fight
Suddenly, a wave of monstrous laughter sounded from the void and filled the entire battlefield.
Everyone who heard this laughter could not help but feel their hearts tremble. Even breathing felt like a difficult thing to do.
"How many years has it been? How many years has it been since the Celestial Spirit Clan had been locked away in this place? It has been so many years since we've tried to enter this mainland but of all things, it has been you, idiotic humans, who keep standing in our way!"
An elderly figure suddenly appeared from the void. He was extremely tall and his face was riddled with wrinkles like an old tree bark. Those who saw that face immediately felt extremely uncomfortable.
'Demon' was the nickname given by humans to these cruel abnormalities. The true name of their race was the Celestial Spirit Clan!
The Celestial Spirit Clan were originally one of the inhabitants of the mainland. They were exceptionally cruel and had provoked a powerful cultivator before being imprisoned in this land by that powerful cultivator! The soil in this land was so poor that many members of the Celestial Spirit Clan were unable to stave off their hunger. Therefore, they constantly wished to return to the mainland once again.
This time, they want to proclaim themselves as the sovereign ruler over the mainland and make the humans serve them!
"That's the leader of the demons."
Gu Shengxiao took a few steps back to stand next to Gu Ruoyun. He furrowed his brows and turned towards the elderly man standing in the void, "He's very powerful, his powers are a few times more powerful than most high-level Martial Honors! Unless you're a Martial Supreme, no one would be able to match him. Not even if a hundred Martial Honors were to join forces."
"Really?" Gu Ruoyun raised an eyebrow, "So, is he a high-level Martial Honor or a Martial Supreme?"
"He is a high-level Martial Honor."
Gu Shengxiao replied with certainty, "This leader of the demons' cultivation techniques are unorthodox and that's why he is unmatched amongst those in the rank of a high-level Martial Honor. However, I can confirm that he hasn't broken through to the rank of a Martial Supreme yet."
"Then I can relax."
Gu Ruoyun heaved a sigh of relief before walking towards the elderly man standing in the void.
"Yun'er, what are you planning?"Gu Shengxiao's heart suddenly clenched and he quickly chased after her. He held tightly onto Gu Ruoyun's shoulder as he implored with furrowed brows, "Yun'er, don't be brash. I know you've defeated the Immortal Master but the leader of the demons is not like him at all. It's safer if you stick with me."
Gu Ruoyun put her hand on the back of Gu Shengxiao's hand and slowly pushed it away from her shoulder.
"As long as he hasn't broken through to the rank of a Martial Supreme, dealing with him shouldn't be much of a problem."
