“Borrow the power of the Demon God to awaken the ancestor bloodline of the demons.”
Hearing this explanation, Chen Chen’s heart skipped a beat, and he kept the blood away without saying a word.
This blood should be what the Demon God’s bloodline had bestowed on the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor.
Awakening the latent ancestral bloodline in the body of the demon meant that the demon should probably be able to return to the ancestor.
Even the ancestor of a domestic pig might have been an impressive figure in the past.
The function of the blood was to allow even the ordinary domestic pigs of the current times, to restore the glory of the ancestors.
Chen Chen naturally wanted to keep such a good item for himself, so that he could let Lao Hei use it in the future.
After all, Lao Hei’s slightly mutated domestic pig bloodline was too inferior, and it was severely limiting its development.
The resources that he had given to Lao Hei would probably make any other demon become a Demon Emperor.
Seeing that Chen Chen had kept away the blood, Qinglin’s eyes twitched, and she hesitated to speak.
Seeing this, Chen Chen smiled and asked, “Sister Qinglin, could it be that you have taken a fancy to the bloodline of this land demon?”
Qinglin’s face turned pale when she heard that, and she humphed coldly. “Me? Taken a fancy to the bloodline of the land demon? How is it possible!?!”
After saying those words, Qinglin quickly returned to Little Carefree Immortal Palace.
Chen Chen was speechless to see that.
This sea demon is really so easy to deal with. If only all the people and demons in this world were as naive as this sea demoness.
After Qinglin returned to the Little Carefree Immortal Palace, Chen Chen put away the corpse of the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor and flew in another direction towards the border of Qi and Wei.
By the time that he returned to the border of Qi and Wei, the Divine Snow Demon Emperor had already retreated.
Seeing that Chen Chen had returned, the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord came closer and handed his storage ring to Chen Chen, which still contained 90% of the treasures that he initially had.
The Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord nodded slightly and thanked him.
After taking the storage ring, Chen Chen inspected it and set it aside.
‘I have to admit that Zhang Ji’s master is much better than mine.’
‘If I gave Yu Qiong this storage ring, she’ll probably just thank me and never return it.’
Chen Chen hesitated for a moment, but he nevertheless took out the corpse of the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor from his storage ring.
“Senior, this Berserk Lion Demon Emperor has fallen into a state of thanatosis so I’ve decided to deal with him. What do you think we should do?”
When the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord saw the corpse of the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor, he raised his eyebrows and subconsciously looked at Zhang Ji, who had been standing behind Chen Chen without saying a word.
“Master, when we found this Berserk Lion Demon Emperor, he was indeed in thanatosis. The entire mountain crumbled, but he didn’t respond.”
After sensing the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord’s gaze, Zhang Ji said with a smile.
The Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord fell silent after hearing that.
He had traveled far and wide, only to win easily.
After exterminating the Berserk Lions and Crimson Foxes, followed by the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor, the battle on Qi and Wei was considered half-completed. They could almost declare it a victory.
The sense of bliss happened too suddenly, and he couldn’t get used to it.
Half a day later.
In the middle of a certain mountain peak in the Western Border.
The black-robed diabolic cultivator yelled!
“Great! The Berserk Lion Demon Emperor has been killed by a young man named Chen Chen!”
The few white-robed old men around them were all silent.
Ever since the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord had returned from the demons’ territory, the Demon Venerable had been mocking them for having poor judgment. Hence, they really didn’t want to speak to him.
However, after hearing this news, a few of them still couldn’t help but be overjoyed.
Once the Berserk Lion Demon Emperor died, those demons would not dare to slaughter at will, which was a great thing for the entire human race.
“Ahem, my Disciple-Nephew said that the young man was also the one who came up with the idea of exterminating the Berserk Lions and Crimson Foxes, and he wants us to give that young man half the credit.”
The Demon Venerable’s expression changed.
Despite being unwilling to agree, it was what his Disciple-Nephew wanted so he had to agree.
Hearing these words, several top human elites began to think about it, and soon, they remembered who Chen Chen was.
Among them, the Clan master of the Haoran Sword Clan was especially elated.
“So it’s that kid… He’s quite worthy of Xishuang.”
Thinking of this, he looked at the Demon Venerable and said, “If news about it were to spread, I doubt that kid is strong enough to bear the glory.”
The Demon Venerable nodded and said, “That goes without a word. My Disciple-Nephew said that he’ll bear all the karma.”
“However, as his Uncle-Master, I must speak up for him. Now that the demons are out to hunt him down, shouldn’t we also do something?”
Hearing this, the people turned to look at an old man who was dozing off in the corner.
Although he seemed a little scruffy and unkempt, he was the current Clan Master of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan and the best alchemist in the world. At the same time, he was the richest human being.
When someone asked for a reward, they would have to ask him for it.
Before the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan Master said anything, the Demon Venerable said with a smile, “I heard that the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan has one remaining Creation Void-Breaking Elixir. Now that we have reached the critical point of the survival of the human race, we ought to take it out.”
“Besides, the demons have placed a bounty on my Disciple-Nephew, and the reward is a guaranteed entry to the Void Refinement realm. If we can help him enter the Void Refinement realm, it will not only show our powerful foundation, it will also repress the demons.”
Hearing the name “Creation Void-Breaking Elixir”, all of them fell silent while being full of jealousy.
It was the supreme treasure of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan and more than 3,000 years ago, the clan master only managed to refine five, through the combined efforts of three generations.
Over the years, they had already used four, and there was only one left.
The function was simple, and that was to let Essence Soul realm cultivators reach the Void Refinement realm.
They had been coveting the pill for a long time, but unfortunately, they hadn’t had the opportunity. Now that the Demon Venerable had mentioned it, they were indignant, but there was nothing they could say.
Currently, the person who was the most qualified to use the elixir was the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord.
They understood it clearly, and there was no need for them to deceive themselves and others.
The Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan master frowned with a reluctant gaze.
As the saying goes, one should keep benefits for their use. Of course, he wanted to keep the Creation Void-Breaking Elixir for his Yu Qiong, but she was too incompetent.
In this critical moment that would decide the survival of the human race, he really couldn’t bring himself to be biased or stingy.
After hesitating for a long time, and seeing that the Demon Venerable’s gaze was getting more and more dangerous, the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan master sighed and took out a wooden box from his storage ring. He then slid it to the Demon Venerable.
The Demon Venerable opened it and saw a colorful elixir that was the size of a cherry, which made him overjoyed. He hurriedly set it aside and then looked at the master of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan solemnly.
“Senior Brother, you’re so righteous! I shall thank you on my Disciple-Nephew’s behalf!”
Seeing that the Demon Venerable had called him Senior Brother for the sake of an elixir, everyone else looked at him with disdain.
After discussing the reward for the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord, it was time to discuss Chen Chen’s reward.
Everyone turned to look at the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan master.
The Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan master’s face was sullen.
“Why are you all looking at me again? Do you think I have an inexhaustible amount of treasures?”
“Well, Senior Brother, you’re the richest among us,” the others began to call him Senior Brother.
The Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan master cringed, and his white beard twitched a little.
“Chen Chen seems to be below the Essence Soul realm, right? For cultivators like him, we can just give him some random rewards. Just give him a little something from your collection, and he’ll be utterly grateful.”
Stepping into the Void Refinement realm from the Essence Soul realm might affect the situation of the entire human race but not if it was an advancement to the Nascent Soul realm. Hence, he could be a little stingy with it.
“Chen Chen has an innate spirit body, he might not like ordinary things. Besides, he also gave my Disciple-grandniece a piece of Heavenly Divine Gold. He’s very rich.”
The Haoran Sword Clan master frowned.
The Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan master frowned and found a point to bank on. “Right, isn’t Chen Chen Xishuang’s Dao partner? You shall be the one to reward him then. Even if you give him a lousy reward, he wouldn’t dare to criticize you, would he?”
The others had peculiar expressions after hearing that.
“Are you really going to give him a random reward?” the Demon Venerable asked with uncertainty.
Seeing this, the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan seemed to be a little embarrassed and said, “We can’t be too casual with it… Let’s just give him a little something.”
Seeing how stingy they were, the Haoran Sword Clan master barked furiously, “Old fogy, Chen Chen has joined the clan of your disciple, Yu Qiong! Surely you know this, right?!”
The Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan’s expression changed drastically when he heard that and his hair immediately stood on ends. He exclaimed at the top of his voice. “What!?! There’s such a disciple in the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan!?!”
As soon as he said that, everyone’s expression turned contemptuous and the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan master calmed down immediately. His white hair drooped down too and he once again looked like he was half-asleep. Even his voice became ethereal again.
“Chen Chen has made such a great achievement, but he still doesn’t have a good reputation. I think we have to give him a handsome reward or it’ll disappoint the elites.”
Hearing this, the expressions of the people around them became even more contemptuous.
