When the Foundation Establishment realm demon flew away in panic, Yuan Qingtian began to take out his treasure and scrutinized it, as if he had resigned to fate and was ready to die.
After all, they were going to face an Essence Soul realm demon who was probably extraordinary. Hence, he must be prepared to die in battle.
After thinking for a while, he released a communication token and intended to leave some last words to someone. However, he wasn’t well accustomed to imparting any profound words. After brainstorming for a long time, he said, “I’m leaving to face a battle with a Demon Emperor, and I’m afraid I might not be able to make it alive and return. Take care!”
As soon as he said that, Chen Chen held him along on a flight, and they soon flew away.
“No… Senior Brother, aren’t we going to wait for the White Bear Demon Emperor?”
Yuan Qingtian was dumbfounded.
“What for? I’m just teasing him. We’ll just cause a small ruckus here in the southern region.”
Chen Chen cursed softly.
For the sake of the State of Jin and the humans, he had no choice but to honor his word no matter how prideful he usually was.
He understood the logic that he should disturb the enemy if he couldn’t defeat him.
Fifteen minutes passed.
The White Bear Demon Emperor arrived at the mountain peak where nothing else was visible except the demon corpses.
He wasn’t angered or anything, and he asked calmly, “How many people did Chen Chen bring?”
“More than ten! They’re all experts!” the Foundation Establishment realm demon said confidently after being released.
“How high are their cultivation levels?”
“I don’t know… They’re at least at the Core Formation realm and above.”
The White Bear Demon Emperor frowned when he heard that. That demon was only at the Foundation Establishment realm, so he didn’t have broad horizons.
However, he could roughly deduce the other party’s abilities.
Anyway, it was inferior to him.
While he was thinking about Chen Chen’s direction of operation, he received a message from a communication token.
“Lord, we have been attacked. The location is…”
After the venue was mentioned, there were no longer any messages from the communication token.
The White Bear Demon Emperor removed the token he burst into laughter. “Are you playing that trick with me? Hah, relay my orders. Tell all the divisions to stop nurturing the demonic beasts and gather here. We must catch that innate spirit body today!”
There was a game of hide-and-seek going on in the Southern region.
They were fighting with each other at the border of the Southern region and in the end, Lao Hei brought thousands of demonic cultivators to the State of Jin border and even marked the area within 500 kilometers around Mount Wufeng, as his turf.
The Heavenly Wolf Demon Emperor was delayed by the demonic cultivators for a while. By the time it reached the border of the State of Jin, he could only glare at the demonic cultivators under Lao Hei.
After all, Lao Hei was also considered a Black Pig Demon Emperor in the Demon Courts, so he couldn’t openly attack. If he started a battle in the internal sector, the Demon Courts definitely wouldn’t let him off.
Hence, he could only head East and occupy the land where there was nobody.
In the neighboring area of Mount Wufeng.
All Lao Hei could see were the migrating civilians, and he could also sense the killing intent that the demons at the back were suppressing.
As long as he relayed an order, his subordinates would turn into executioners and slaughter all the mortals below.
After the silly dog behind him saw this and gradually held back, it eventually couldn’t suppress its emotions any longer and said, “Lord, why don’t we…”
He then swiped his hand against his neck.
“What a fool!”
Lao Hei hollered furiously, giving the dog a huge shock. At the same time, it began to recall the words that Chen Chen taught him to say.
“What’s the point of killing these scoundrels?”
Hearing this, the dog remained silent. ‘Indeed, there is no use in doing that, but we were encouraged to do that…’
The Crimson Fox Demon Emperor and Berserk Lion Demon Emperor had both gained a bloodline improvement while Lao Hei, the Black Pig Demon Emperor was genetically inferior.
If his genetics could be improved, he would probably be as famous as the two Demon Emperors.
At the thought of this, the dog, Er Gou began tearing up, feeling extremely aggrieved to have been called a fool even though he was sparing a thought for Lao Hei.
“Er Gou, we can’t just focus on the demons. The Crimson Fox Demon Emperor and the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor may be enjoying glory now, but the outstanding ones always get killed first. They earned the Demon God’s appreciation but also became the human race’s target of hatred. Look, haven’t the humans sent the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord to deal with them?”
Lao Hei rubbed Er Gou’s head and began mimicking Chen Chen’s expression, making himself look smart and wise.
“However, the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord might not be able to conquer them…” Er Gou was still being muttered.
“Hehe, so what if he can’t take them down? Even if we, the demons, annihilated the humans, they’d be able to escape and then avenge. The Crimson Fox Demon Emperor and the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor are the ones who started the extermination. Don’t you think they are the best targets for revenge? Even if they are powerful, can they still escape the revenge of Void Refinement realm cultivators?”
Lao Hei made a lot of sense because Er Gou gradually seemed to have understood.
“Lord, I seem to have understood something.”
“Good that you understand. It’s just a small vassal state, all the humans have died. It initially shouldn’t warrant the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord. However, it concerns the morale of all the humans, so the upper echelons made such an arrangement.”
“Even if the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord fails, there will be other experts. Although humans are inferior to us demons, it’s still possible for them to kill two Demon Emperors.”
Er Gou was already drenched in a cold sweat, thinking that the Crimson Fox Demon Emperor and the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor were going to die.
They had indeed received the reward from the Demon God, but they had become the humans’ subject of hatred.
That was not a good thing.
‘The Black Pig Emperor’s wisdom is not something I can compare to.’
The demons at the back also had naturally heard Lao Hei’s words as they suppressed their intent to kill.
Seeing this, Lao Hei was slightly relieved. He glanced at the countless commoners before saying calmly, “Wait for the other Demon Emperors to attack first. Once the attackers reach their number at seven or eight, we won’t stand out when we do the same. By then, the hate will still be directed at those few Demon Emperors. As for these ants below, you can just kill them whenever you want, right?”
“You’re so wise, Lord Black Pig Emperor!”
The demons were in awe. During this battle, it was important to rise in fame, but staying alive would always be the most important priority.
They would have the prodigious chance of strategically surviving only if they followed such a Demon Emperor.
Just like the Crimson Fox Demon Emperor and the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor, they might be enjoying glory now, but many of their subordinate demons have died.
They didn’t want to die on the battlefield.
The situation in the State of Jin gradually stabilized with Chen Chen’s operations.
A few days later, the migration was finally completed, although many people died or sustained injuries during the process. Finally, the humans of the State of Jin were kept alive.
The land was divided by the three Demon Emperors, and in the eyes of the entire human race, the State of Jin was no different from the states of Qi and Wei.
Chen Chen and Lao Hei were the only ones who knew what happened.
On this day, Lao Hei was sleeping in some cave within the territory, when Er Gou suddenly ran in.
“Lord, the White Bear Emperor of the southern region has sent an envoy!”
Hearing this, Lao Hei rubbed his eyes, came to his senses, and said indifferently, “Let him in.”
A moment later, a demon in black entered in a dignified manner, but after seeing Lao Hei’s dazzling golden armor, a trace of awe flashed in his eyes.
With such treasures, the strength of the Black Pig Emperor could be imagined.
“Lord Black Pig Emperor, the State of Jin may have fallen into the hands of the demons, but that innate spirit body still rambled in the southern region. The White Bear Demon Emperor probably fled the Southern region, so he sent me to ask you to slay that innate spirit body first!”
The demon sounded a little helpless because they had been besieging Chen Chen and the humans, but they never managed to succeed and hold them back.
They had no choice but to invite the other two Demon Emperors in the State of Jin for help.
Otherwise, if Chen Chen left, they would end up with nothing.
“Uh, invite me? Did the Heavenly Wolf Demon Emperor invite me?” Lao Hei asked with a yawn.
The demon smiled and said, “Lord, Heavenly Wolf has led a Demon Emperor along while 20 Demon Emperors have headed to the Southern region. As long as you’re willing to go, that innate spirit body will die too!”
Lao Hei panicked and stood up in shock.
“He ordered, all those above the Nascent Soul realm, to follow me to the Southern region and kill Chen Chen, the innate spirit body!”
With that order, more than twenty Nascent Soul realm demons gathered beside him and were all waiting, ready to set off.
