“I heard that you killed an Essence Soul realm Demon Emperor. Is that true?”
After the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord stabilized his army, he shifted his gaze onto Chen Chen.
Needless to say, he knew that the plan to delve deep into the demons’ den wasn’t Zhang Ji’s idea, but Chen Chen’s.
After hearing that Chen Chen had slaughtered an Essence Soul realm Demon Emperor, he could not help but lose his composure.
He didn’t expect such an expert to emerge among the human race.
‘He’s much stronger than I was when I was his age. If he continues to progress successfully, there’ll probably be yet another elite human.’
Hearing his words, Chen Chen smiled calmly and said, “It was just a Demon Emperor who’s at the early stage of the Essence Soul realm. I’ve embarrassed myself.”
“Hah! It’s been hard on you the past three days. If we win and the higher-ups reward us, I’ll tell them the truth of the situation.”
The corners of the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord’s lips curled up into a smile and he turned around to leave without bothering to see if Chen Chen agreed or not.
Staring at his back, Chen Chen smiled and shook his head.
Zhang Ji was the only person the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord would talk to frequently, and he was usually very aloof to others.
He merely said a few words to Chen Chen.
‘He’s probably scared that he might accidentally kill me with his baneful aura because he can tell how low my aptitude is. Maybe this is another form of recognition.’
With that thought, Chen Chen subconsciously smiled.
However, at this moment, a maniacal roar suddenly spread over from afar and Chen Chen’s smile stiffened.
Chen Chen turned around, only to see that there was a golden lion flying towards him at an incredible speed, destroying all the trees and land in its path!
“Berserk Lion Demon Emperor! Why has it suddenly become so much stronger?!”
Chen Chen’s expression changed drastically.
Compared to two days ago, the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor’s aura had become countless times stronger! It had probably reached the late stage of the Essence Soul realm!
Before he could continue to think further, the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor spewed out a shockwave at the entire camp!
Several Essence Soul realm powerhouses sensed the arrival of the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor and raised their hands to block the attacks!
With a shocking, explosive sound, countless human experts were blasted away, and a few early-stage Essence Soul realm cultivators vomited blood right on the spot.
Chen Chen took this opportunity to retreat quickly. He didn’t dare to oppose the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor.
Just when the Lion Demon Emperor wanted to continue to wreak havoc, the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord suddenly appeared and punched the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor with his fist, which was condensed with a baneful aura.
“Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord! I must kill you!”
After the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor saw the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord, the last trace of sanity in his eyes disappeared without a trace, and the blood in his body once again emitted rays of light. Immediately afterwards, he opened his mouth and swallowed the evil aura.
A loud explosive sound spread from within his body and golden blood seeped out of the corners of the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor’s mouth. However, he pounced onto the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord as if nothing had happened.
Chen Chen’s jaw dropped when he saw that.
The Berserk Lion Demon Emperor was simply a Zhang Ji of the demons, relying on stupid ways to become stronger.
‘Is this a demon who’s restrained by his destiny?’
Zhang Ji quickly flew to Chen Chen and said to him anxiously, “Big Brother, my master is seriously injured, and he has less than 10% of his strength left. He probably can’t subdue the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor for now, so he sent me a voice transmission and asked us to retreat quickly!”
It was not the place to fight and the consequences would be unimaginable for the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor if the Divine Snow Demon Emperor were to arrive.
Cold sweat dripped down Chen Chen’s forehead. Who would have thought that the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor would suddenly become so powerful and break the balance between the two sides?!
“Zhang Ji, what injuries did your master sustain? Ask him about it. I have plenty of treasures here, maybe I can treat his injuries quickly.”
Chen Chen gritted his teeth. It wasn’t the time to be petty now.
Hearing his words, Zhang Ji immediately sent a voice transmission and soon, he got an answer from the other party.
“Big Brother, Master, was surrounded by several peak Essence Soul realm experts of the demon race and their essence souls have been injured… As for their superficial wounds, they’ve already consumed some recovery elixirs so they’re almost healed.”
“Essence Soul realm…”
Hearing his words, Chen Chen hurriedly took out dozens of treasures which made Zhang Ji’s jaw drop.
Although he would occasionally get some treasures, he was worlds apart from Chen Chen!
Treasures that could heal one’s essence soul were very rare and few in number, yet Chen Chen had dozens of them.
“System, which item can quickly heal the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord’s injuries?”
“The Deep-Sea Essence Spirit Algae half a meter to the left.”
Hearing this answer, Chen Chen put away all the other treasures, and then took out a few more treasures that could allow him to replenish his spiritual power and mental energy. He then looked at the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord in the sky.
However, the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord was fighting with the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor in the sky at this moment. He didn’t have time to spare at all.
Sensing this, Chen Chen exclaimed at the injured Essence Soul realm experts, “Seniors! Please stall for some time for the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord!”
Seeing the treasures in Chen Chen’s hands, the few Essence Soul realm experts immediately understood what Chen Chen meant. Without the slightest hesitation, they blocked the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord.
Although he knew every move and strike that the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord was launching, he immediately rushed to Chen Chen’s side. Without hesitation, he swallowed several treasures before flying up into the sky again.
The entire process took less than a second and Chen Chen hadn’t even reacted yet.
However, in that second, those Essence Soul realm cultivators were blown down from the sky again, and their physical bodies almost collapsed.
Chen Chen sighed helplessly and scattered another wave of heavenly treasures.
He didn’t care about the treasures at all, but if he took out too many at once, it would inevitably lead to inflation.
“Big Brother… I’ve implicated you. If you hadn’t come to help me, this wouldn’t have happened…”
Seeing this, Zhang Ji’s heart could not help but ache. In his opinion, Chen Chen had contributed a lot of treasures this time.
Even the most powerful Essence Soul realm experts couldn’t stand such a huge expenditure.
Chen Chen shook his head nonchalantly.
‘This is… Peanuts to me.’
However, the value of things could not be calculated in such a manner. For example, a billionaire wouldn’t feel the pinch if he gave a million dollars to a pauper.
However, that didn’t mean that a million dollars was worth nothing! For the poor, a million dollars would be enough to last them a lifetime!
As the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord’s injuries gradually recovered, the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor began resisting in the sky.
Even though he had stepped into the late Essence Soul realm, he was still far from reaching the peak.
When the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord recovered to 20% of his usual strength, he would be able to blast the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor away thousands of meters with a single smack!
However, the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor seemed to be fearless to death. As soon as he reached the ground, he charged towards the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord again.
Seeing this scene, Chen Chen subconsciously wanted to contact Qinglin and ask her for help.
Although Qinglin had gotten injured two days ago, Chen Chen had already treated her wounds and she had not only recovered fully, her abilities had also vaguely improved by a large margin.
However, who would have thought that this demoness, Qinglin, would feign ignorance and act as if she hadn’t heard anything. Chen Chen even wondered if she had developed some psychological trauma after the fight two days ago.
“Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord! You despicable scum!”
The battle was intense, and at this moment, a blue Qilin flew over and spewed out a chilly mass of gas. In an instant, the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord was sealed in the air.
The Divine Snow Demon Emperor was overjoyed.
Who would have thought that the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor would have mistakenly opened up a new prospect?
If it happened in the past, the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord would have never been sealed by his chilliness. However, the current situation simply showed that the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord’s competency was not at the peak!
If he had known earlier, he would have rushed here immediately after hearing that news, regardless of what happened.
However, it wasn’t too late now. The madman, the Berserk Lion, was never qualified to intervene in the battle of the peak Essence Soul realm in the past. Now that his abilities had been improved, he might really be able to kill the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord!
While the Divine Snow Demon Emperor was thinking, the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor had already smacked its large claws at the frozen Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord!
Noticing the incoming attack, the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord broke out of the seal and a sword suddenly emerged. It then slashed towards the claws of the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor.
The sounds of violent collisions filled the air and the Divine Snow Demon Emperor spat out a blue, long spear that blocked the black sword immediately.
However, the terrifying aftershocks from the collision of the personal treasures of the two peak Essence Soul realm experts caused the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor to be shaken to the point of bleeding.
At this point, the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor had gone mad and broke through the seal with its bloodied claws, before smacking the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord away.
When the crowd below saw this scene, their expressions changed drastically.
An ominous hunch surged within their hearts and many of them felt an urge to retreat.
At this moment, someone exclaimed, “Demon Lord, don’t panic! Catch this storage ring!”
