“The demons cultivate diabolism too?”
Chen Chen was shocked.
Of course, what shocked him, even more, was that the Void Refinement realm demon, and the Void Refinement realm expert who was hiding in the human race, belonged to the same organization.
There was too much information to process, and too many hidden secrets, so much that he didn’t dare to think much about it for now.
“Is there anything else you have to say?”
Chen Chen asked after a moment of quiet contemplation.
The man in black shook his head with a shifty gaze.
Chen Chen assented, not concerned about whether he was telling the truth or not. He turned his head to look at Qinglin who then looked at the great sea demons.
The next second, the overwhelming storm blew towards the remaining men in black.
“Shameless scoundrel! You went back on your word!”
The leader cursed furiously.
Although he had expected that outcome, he still could not help but be enraged after the last of his hopes were dashed.
Hearing this, Chen Chen’s face turned sullen. He had been called shameless several times before, but it was the first time he was called a scoundrel!
“You’ve got a death wish”
As soon as he said that, the storm swept across through the twenty-odd men in black.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
A series of explosions filled the air, and the twenty-odd men in black were annihilated on the spot while the remaining Essence Soul realm powerhouses had their physical bodies destroyed completely. Only their essence souls were left hovering in the air.
The Giant Crab sea demon roared like a dragon, shocking the few essence souls to the point of becoming dim and weak.
Chen Chen thought about it and did not rush to kill them.
He thought that these essence souls might contain some other information that might be useful to him in the future.
After hesitating for a moment, he sealed the essence souls and confined them to the Little Carefree Immortal Palace.
‘Since Qinglin doesn’t have much to do on a daily basis, she can work as a part-time prison warden for now.’
A few moments later, peace was once again restored on the Flying Dragon Island, and it was as if nothing had happened.
Chen Chen looked at the Giant Crab sea demon and gave it plenty of compliments before it was willing to leave in satisfaction.
At this moment, Nan Pinghai began scurrying over from a nearby spot, looking extremely frustrated.
“Lord! This matter really has nothing to do with me! I absolutely have no intention of harming you!”
Chen Chen smiled without saying anything. After a long time, he said, “Don’t mention this matter again. After you go home, tell your best friend to change his appearance before going to the land to develop.”
“This…” Hearing his words, Nan Pinghai’s expression changed slightly.
He had had his cultivation level sealed just now and was tossed to the side so he didn’t hear anything.
However, after hearing Chen Chen’s words, it seemed that the force hadn’t been destroyed completely…and might even take revenge in the future…
There were ten Essence Soul realm powerhouses and more than twenty Nascent Soul realm cultivators. How powerful must that force be?
“You’d better keep a low profile and avoid appearing in public as much as possible. Do you understand?”
Chen Chen reminded again.
Nan Pinghai felt a little touched. ‘As the saying goes, the gentleman will die for his bosom friend.’
‘Faced with such a big misunderstanding, the Lord has unconditionally chosen to trust me and even reminded me to be mindful of my own safety… I feel so bad.’
“Yes, Lord, I understand! I will do my best to work for you in the future.”
“Good that you understand. Let me teach you what to say to the public regarding this matter.”
Bright early in the morning of the next day, Chen Chen returned to the city without a word.
He then announced to the public that the seniors of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan had successfully surrounded a group of diabolic cultivators.
The Heavenly Diabolism had lost so much of their manpower at the Boundless Sea. It was impossible for them not to investigate the matter.
Chen Chen had no choice but to make the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan take the blame. Anyway, they were wealthy and powerful so even the Heavenly Diabolism wouldn’t dare to provoke them.
Of course, as a conscionable person, Chen Chen would never let the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan take the blame without receiving any benefits.
After pretending to negotiate with Nan Pinghai for a while, the merchant alliance righteously gave a lot of benefits to the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan.
In this regard, Chen Chen did not care.
During this battle, almost all the high-level combat experts of the Heavenly Diabolism had been destroyed in the Boundless Sea. From now on, the merchant alliance’s development would no longer be hindered, and it was only right for him to give the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan some benefits as a form of protection fee.
Upon returning to the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan.
Chen Chen reported the matter of Heavenly Diabolism to his master, Yu Qiong, truthfully.
Although the man in black did not tell him the names of the two Void Refinement realm powerhouses of Heavenly Diabolism, Chen Chen wasn’t bothered.
The Void Refinement realm expert of the Void Spirit Clan was a half-demon.
The supreme expert of the demon race was a diabolic cultivator.
That information would allow him to easily identify them. Whenever he came close to those two people, he would be able to find out easily who they were, as long as he used the system to check.
Yu Qiong was extremely shocked to hear Chen Chen’s words. She muttered, “The master of the Heavenly Diabolism of this generation turns out to be a demon. How did that happen? What happened to the diabolic cultivators of the human race?”
Chen Chen did not say anything when he was at the side, but clearly, Yu Qiong was also aware of that organization.
“Master, you said that the Void Spirit Clan has been destroyed. Does it have anything to do with the Heavenly Diabolism?”
Chen Chen asked.
He wasn’t making a wild guess, but rather, the half-demon of the Void Spirit Clan and the demon belonged to the same organization so he couldn’t guarantee that they wouldn’t get up to any tricks.
Just like the group of half-demons of the Dark Immortal Sect, they were all wandering along the boundaries of the humans and demons to reap benefits from both parties.
Hearing this, Yu Qiong’s face changed drastically, and she said coldly, “Don’t breathe a word about this matter to anyone else. I’ll tell my master about your conjecture, and he can decide what to do about it.”
“Yes.” Chen Chen answered gently.
On the other hand, Yu Qiong began to contemplate and ponder about it. It took her 15 minutes to regain her composure and grace.
“You’re quite something, huh? This time, you not only found out the truth in the Boundless Sea, but you’ve also collected such an important piece of information.”
“On top of that, you have also fought for the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan. I have to say that it’d be a shame for a talent like you to not fight at the front line.”
Chen Chen smiled faintly, but his heart was full of contempt.
He was clearly an elite. Yet, he was demoted to being a ‘talent’ by his master.
After cursing in his heart, Chen Chen looked like he was put in a difficult spot.
“Master, in fact, I also want to go to the front line and fight so that I can contribute to the human race, but the seniors of the Haoran Sword Clan said that Xishuang and I cannot stay together unless we both reach the Essence Soul realm. Otherwise, our relationship is going to affect our cultivation. I’ve now stepped into the Essence Soul realm, but my Dao partner is still a small step away.”
“Hah, those sword cultivators of the Haoran Sword Clan are just so straightforward and righteous. A strong-minded and determined cultivator wouldn’t give up on cultivation for romance. If a cultivator does that, he or she probably won’t reach the Void Refinement realm in the future and regardless of whether you stay together or not, they’ll be good for nothing.”
“Master, you’re so wise!”
Chen Chen complimented at the right time.
Yu Qiong glanced at Chen Chen before suddenly saying, “However, in your case, I do understand the reason for the Haoran Sword Clan’s choice. You won’t hamper your own cultivation, but you’re very good at influencing others.”
Chen Chen sulked immediately.
‘What do you mean? Since when have I influenced others negatively? The people who follow me have all improved their status of cultivation by leaps and bounds!’
‘At most, Zhang Ji is the only one who got affected by me a little.’
‘Yu Qiong is really going against her conscience by saying that!’
Seeing the righteous indignation on Chen Chen’s face, Yu Qiong seemed to have suddenly recalled something as she said excitedly, “Chen Chen, how about you join the Heavenly Diabolism?”
“It might be a dark force, but it’ll be useful for the humans during times of war, and that’s a good thing. No matter what, it can’t fall in the hands of the humans and become a weapon that the demons use against the humans.”
Chen Chen shook his head profusely.
“I’m destined to be incompatible with the Heavenly Diabolism. Master, if you let me mix into the Haoran Sword Clan, I’d be rather confident, but if you want me to join the Heavenly Diabolism, it’ll be really difficult.”
After saying this, Chen Chen had a solemn look on his face, while he exuded a righteous aura.
“Chen Chen, you’re really underestimating yourself.”
Yu Qiong looked a little disappointed.
Chen Chen was completely indifferent, and he didn’t waver, because he didn’t like dealing with those who were diabolic.
“Master, I’m not a diabolic cultivator, nor have I committed a heinous crime. Why would I go to the Heavenly Diabolism? If the humans can’t tolerate me anymore one day, I’ll consider this matter again.”
Hearing this, Yu Qiong grabbed Chen Chen’s hand and looked at the Adversity-Overcoming Seal. She said with derision, “Chen Chen, even Heaven can’t stand you, and you said you haven’t committed a heinous crime?”
