Book 13 Three Brothers - Chapter 28 – Announcing to the World
Translated by: Pumpkin
Edited by: Phillip and Robin
After a battle of Emperor level experts, the battlefield that spanned nearly a thousand miles was turned into complete ruins. At the moment, there were two people high up in the sky above the battlefield. Merely a moment later, two more people appeared in the sky.
"Phoenix Tail Crane' Bai Feng, 'Cyan Flame Eagle' Liu Tu, 'Double Headed Dragon Vulture' Ao Ku.
These three people were the three great experts underneath the Peng Demon Emperor. Their status were second only to the Peng Demon Emperor. Currently, the emperor of the entire Bird Clan and these three people were all in the sky above the Black Crow City.
Said Ao Ku and Bai Feng, bowing respectfully. The two of them did not have the arrogance that they displayed earlier. All they had on their face was respect and even a trace of worry and fear.
Beside the Peng Demon Emperor was the Cyan Flame Eagle, Demon Emperor Liu Tu. Demon Emperor Liu Yu wore a cyan colored Battle Armor. His eyes would occasionally flicker with a violent battle intent. It's just that, in the presence of the Peng Demon Emperor, his loftiness had completely vanished.
Standing in the middle was the emperor of the Bird Clan, the Peng Demon Emperor!
The Peng Demon Emperor Zong Yan, his true form is that of a Golden Winged Great Peng Bird. His strength is that of a level eight Demon Emperor. However, as he was the Peng Demon Emperor who possessed an Inherited Treasure, he was able to easily defeat his three subordinates, the three great experts, by himself.
The Peng Demon Emperor was covered in gold from head to foot. He wore a golden gown, golden battle boots, and a golden crown. His pair of cold eyes that did not contain any emotion landed on Bai Feng and Ao Ku in front of him.
"Your Majesty, Ao Ku and I had never expected for Hei Yu and his brothers to be that powerful. We have been delaying this entire time. However, that Qin Yu surprisingly discovered our intention at the final moment. And thus, the three of them escaped. Your Majesty, this time around, it is I and Ao Ku who did not handle our work sufficiently; Your Majesty, please punish us." Said Bai Feng respectfully.
"Your Majesty, please punish us." Ao Ku also said the same.
Both Ao Ku and Bai Feng knew very well, that the Peng Demon Emperor hated people avoiding their responsibilities. If you were to avoid responsibility and not recognize your mistake, then even if you were not in the wrong… it was still very possible for the Peng Demon Emperor to kill you.
"Oh, the three of them are that powerful? Even the two of you were unable to deal with them?" The Peng Demon Emperor opened his mouth for the first time. His voice was a bit sharp and gave off a soul penetrating sensation. No one dared to be disrespectful to the Peng Demon Emperor as his emperor's domineering aura was omnipresent.
"Your Majesty." Bai Feng said respectfully. "Qin Yu and his two brothers were indeed very strong. This subordinate fought against Hou Fei and Hei Yu by herself and only managed to reach a tie against them with great difficulty. As for Qin Yu, he fought against Ao Ku and even forced Ao Ku to split into two true bodies."
Ao Ku added. "Your Majesty, Hou Fei is at level six Demon Emperor and Hei Yu is at level five Demon Emperor. As for Qin Yu… this subordinate was unable to see through his level. However, his soul's realm's level was not much inferior compared to Your Majesty's. His body was extremely tough. Even this subordinate had to use his all in order to cause him harm with my Divine Weapon."
The Peng Demon Emperor raised an eyelid. Like two profound golden rays of light, his eyesight was shot straight at Ao Ku. "Qin Yu is really that strong? His body's toughness is at a level close to that of a Low Quality Divine Artifact?"
"Yes. Furthermore, Qin Yu's recovery ability was extremely astonishing. Right after his bones were smashed apart by this subordinate, it would recover itself in merely a moment." Ao Ku added. "He also possessed a Divine Sword and an extremely sharp finger technique. If this subordinate did not use his two true bodies, then he might have suffered a defeat instead."
The Peng Demon Emperor nodded.
His clear and cold gaze glanced at the two. The Peng Demon Emperor said indifferently. "I understand, return to the Imperial Palace now."
"Yes, Your Majesty." Bai Feng, Ao Ku and Liu Tu all bowed and accepted the command. Afterwards, the four of them all turned into rays of light and shot toward the direction of the Imperial City.
Inside the Jiang Lan's Realm.
Qin Yu, Hou Fei, Hei Yu and Bai Ling are gathered together.
"Big Brother Yu, what do we do now? Big sister was once again captured by the Peng Demon Emperor's subordinates; how do we save her?" Bai Ling was so worried that she was about to cry.
Hei Yu was only able to hold Bai Ling's hand and console her. "Ling'er, don't worry, we will definitely think of a way." Hei Yu was also extremely worried in his heart. When he first ascended to the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, Bai Ling's older sister, Bai Xin, had also cared for Hei Yu greatly.
Hou Fei mucked up his mouth and said. "We've alerted the enemy now. To go through Zong Jue is likely impossible now. To save Bai Xin now, it's very hard."
"Then what do we do?" Asked Bai Ling worriedly.
Both Qin Yu and Hei Yu were frowning. They were both pondering. However, saving Bai Xin now is a lot harder than when they first arrived on the Black Crow Star; even the Peng Demon Emperor and Liu Tu have returned.
"Oh, that's right. Big brother, why did you suddenly have us enter the Jiang Lan's Realm earlier?" Hou Fei suddenly recalled what happened earlier and asked. Hei Yu also looked to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu smiled and said. "Earlier, that Ao Ku and Bai Feng had been trying to delay the entire time. I have determined that the Peng Demon Emperor was temporarily not on the Black Crow Star. However, for Ao Ku and Bai Feng to be delaying, they were definitely waiting for the Peng Demon Emperor to come back and capture us. That's why I had you two enter the the Jiang Lan's Realm."
"Delaying time?" Hou Fei and Hei Yu were startled. Only after they thought about the battle earlier did they manage to slightly realize it.
"Furthermore, ever since I started suspecting that, I spread my Immortal Awareness out to cover the entire Black Crow Star. At the final moment, my Immortal Awareness suddenly discovered two level eight Demon Emperors arriving on the Black Crow Star's Interstellar Conveying Array. Those two people are likely to be the Peng Demon Emperor and the final one of the three great lords".Said Qin Yu with much certainty.
Level eight Demon Emperors were incomparably sparse. For there to appear two at once, furthermore one of them possessing an aura similar to that of Zong Jue's, which was specific to the Golden Winged Great Peng Bird, Qin Yu determined it to be the Peng Demon Emperor.
"The Peng Demon Emperor has really returned?" Hou Fei was greatly alarmed.
Qin Yu nodded.
Hei Yu also started to frown. "If the Peng Demon Emperor were to return, then it would become a lot more complicated. He is someone who possesses an Inherited Treasure; his strength was close to that of the Dragon Emperor and the Great Ape Emperor. With the strength that the three of us possess… It is simply impossible for us to even battle against him."
"Not only that." Hou Fei said grudgingly. "According to what I learned from the Great Ape Emperor, the Dragon Emperor's Inherited Treasure was able to allow the Dragon Emperor’s defense and attack to increase a lot. As for this Peng Demon Emperor, his Inherited Treasure was that crown on his head. That crown was able to triple his speed while also increasing his attack."
"Triple?" Qin Yu and Hei Yu were shocked.
Hou Fei nodded. "That's right. The Peng Demon Emperor roamed the world unobstructed with his speed to begin with. With the Inherited Treasure, there is not a single person that can match him in speed in the entire Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. Against the Peng Demon Emperor, I reckon that we would be defeated before we even saw his shadow."
The Peng Demon Emperor who prevailed over his opponents with speed, even if his speed wasn't increased, there were still not many people in the entire Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm that can match his speed. Once his speed tripled, it would turn to only him attacking his opponents whereas his opponents cannot even imagine hitting him.
"Furthermore… speed is also attack power. Upon the moment when speed reaches the extreme, the attack power that it brings forth is also extremely powerful. According to what the Great Ape Emperor said, the Dragon Emperor's defense and attack are both very powerful but his speed is not up to much. As for this Peng Demon Emperor, his speed is very fast and attack is also pretty powerful but his defense is not up to much." Hou Fei spoke frankly with assurance.
After following the Great Ape Emperor Sun Yuan for a long time, Hou Fei also came to know a lot of things.
"Defense not up to much, but he ought to have a Divine Armor." Qin Yu spoke.
Hou Fei nodded and said. "That's right, he does have a Divine Armor; a Low Quality Divine Armor." However Qin Yu had never heard that anyone possessed a Mid Quality Divine Armor yet. Divine Armors are, after all, extremely precious.
"Low Quality Divine Armor worn by a level eight Demon Emperor, even if one were to attack it, who can possibly break through it?" Hei Yu spoke.
Qin Yu nodded.
A level eight Demon Emperor Super Divine Beast wearing a Low Quality Divine Armor was still considered to have weak defense to the Great Ape Emperor? Likely, even if Qin Yu and his brothers attacked him at the same time, they would still be unable to break through the defense.
"How would I know? Anyways, that's what the Great Ape Emperor said. He said that the Peng Demon Emperor's only weak point was his defense and the Dragon Emperor's weak point was his speed." Hou Fei spoke frankly.
"Then what's the weak point of the Great Ape Emperor?" Qin Yu asked.
Hou Fei smiled and said. "According to what the Great Ape Emperor said himself, he does not have any weak point. With the Great Ape Emperor's stick techniques, Once he executed his stick technique, then even with the Peng Demon Emperor's attack, it is still very hard for him to break through the Great Ape Emperor's defense. As for attack… once he executed the Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes, even the Peng Demon Emperor wouldn't dare to take it on firmly. Speed? The Great Ape Emperor's comprehension is already at a very high level. Although his body might not be able to keep up, his long stick's speed was able to keep up with his opponent."
Hou Fei smiled again. "Although he said he doesn't have any weak points, but from how I see it, the Great Ape Emperor is a bit inferior in all aspects. His defense is not as strong as the Dragon Emperor. His speed is slower than the Peng Demon Emperor. Only his attack is powerful enough!"
Qin Yu shook his head and smiled. "Let's not talk about those three anymore. With their strength, any one of them could easily defeat us. Their so called 'weak point' is stronger than even our 'strong points.'"
Hearing this, Hou Fei and Hei Yu was unable to refrain themselves from smiling helplessly.
The reality was as such.
"Big brother." Bai Ling looked to Qin Yu. "My older sister, she… how are we to save her?"
"Ling'er." Hei Yu frowned and reprimanded. Hei Yu did not wish to force his big brother. Especially after the Peng Demon Emperor returned; saving Bai Xin had clearly became much more difficult.
After being reprimanded, Bai Ling grew quiet.
"Enough." Qin Yu smiled. "You all stay here first. I'll go to the Black Crow City and inquire about some information first. You all don't have to say anymore, when I conceal my aura, there are not many people that can discover me. Furthermore, if the situation turns bad, I can also enter the Jiang Lan's Realm. I do not believe that the Peng Demon Emperor could find the Jiang Lan's Realm."
Hou Fei started to laugh. "That's right, unless the Peng Demon Emperor dared to do what Emperor Yu did and refine the entire Black Crow Star; otherwise, it is impossible for him to find the Jiang Lan's Realm."
"Even if he finds it, he still cannot break through it." Hei Yu also smiled.
"Mn, well then, I'll go out first." After Qin Yu finished, he disappeared from the Jiang Lan's Realm.
Black Crow Star. Inside the Imperial City's Imperial Palace.
The Peng Demon Emperor returned with the three great experts. At the same time, he had commanded Zong Jue to come to the Imperial Palace. When Zong Jue received the command, he also became somewhat nervous.
"Humph, I do not believe that the Peng Demon Emperor would truly dare to kill me." Zong Jue clenched his teeth and steadied his pace. He directly headed toward the Imperial Palace's Dynastic Speech Hall.
The Peng Demon Emperor wore a golden crown on his head. On his body was a golden gown and on his feet a pair of golden battle boots. He was sitting on top of the Dynastic Speech Hall. Below the Dynastic Speech Hall, Ao Ku, Liu Tu and Bai Feng sat on the two sides with their legs crossed. In front of the three of them were short tables. On top of the tables were many delicacies.
Ao Ku, Liu Tu and Bai Feng simultaneously looked to the entrance. They saw Zong Jue calmly walking into the Dynastic Speech Hall. Soon after, Zong Jue said respectfully. "Zong Jue paying his respect to Your Majesty."
"Sit." Said the Peng Demon Emperor indifferently.
"Thank you Your Majesty." Zong Jue walked to one side and sat down. It just so happened that in the lower section of the Dynastic Speech Hall, there were two tables on each side.
"Zong Jue." The Peng Demon Emperor's sharp voice sounded. "I've heard that you secretly brought Bai Xin out this time around and even tried to deliver her to Hei Yu and them?"
Zong Jue lightly bowed and said. "Yes, there is no sense for me to quibble."
"Is there something that you want to say?" The Peng Demon Emperor looked at Zong Jue with his two eyes.
Zong Jue nodded and smiled. "Your Majesty. Your Majesty ought to know that I have a relationship with Qin Yu and his two brothers. I have also received grace from their sect's elder before. They asked for my help and I owed them a favor, so how could I not help them? This time could be considered as me returning them their favor. Furthermore, it's merely a single Bai Xin. A mere Demon King, what harm is there to give her to them?"
"Bai Xin is indeed of no importance, but!"
The Peng Demon Emperor's voice suddenly grew cold. A frightening aura came crushing down on Zong Jue. "But that Hei Yu is extremely important. I must definitely kill Hei Yu. I must definitely have him dead! Do you understand?"
The voice fuming with rage between gritted teeth caused Zong Jue's heart to quiver.
The Peng Demon Emperor's voice slowed down. "Zong Jue, you ought to know that I hold you in very high regards. Other than me, you are the sole Golden Winged Great Peng Bird from the Peng Clan. I do not wish for the next Peng Demon Emperor's status to be obtained by the Dark Electric Great Peng Bird."
The Bird Clan possessed four different types of Super Divine Beasts. Phoenix, Seven Colored Peacock and the two Super Divine Beast from the Peng Clan… Golden Winged Great Peng Bird and the Dark Electric Great Peng Bird. Each successive Peng Demon Emperor was either a Golden Winged Great Peng Bird or a Dark Electric Great Peng Bird.
"As I am a Golden Winged Great Peng Bird, I look after you especially. However, you'd best not think that I would not kill you. I'm warning you this time, if you were to violate my desire one more time, then I would rather have the Dark Electric Great Peng Bird become the next Peng Demon Emperor and kill you. Understand?" The Peng Demon Emperor's gaze was still ruthless as always.
"Yes, Your Majesty."
Zong Jue's heart was quaking in fear. He knew very well of the temperament of this generation's Peng Demon Emperor. If one were to violate his wish, he will definitely kill them. This time around, because Zong Jue was a Golden Winged Great Peng Bird whose status was extremely precious on top of having the same true form as the Peng Demon Emperor, did the Peng Demon Emperor make it into merely a warning instead of killing him.
"Bai Feng." The Peng Demon Emperor looked to Bai Feng.
"This subordinate is present." Said Bai Feng respectfully.
The Peng Demon Emperor commanded. "That Qin Yu and his brothers regard Bai Xin of high importance; I command you to announce to the entire world that after six months, Bai Xin will be executed on the Black Crow Star's Yellow Lion Mountain."
Zong Jue's heart was startled.
Execute Bai Xin? And also announcing to the entire world? Isn't that obviously to attract Qin Yu and them?
The Peng Demon Emperor continued. "In these six months, restrain Bai Xin's power and tie her up on the summit of the Yellow Lion Mountain. Ao Ku, you are to lead three Demon Emperors and a group of guards to watch over the surroundings. At the same time, set up the 'Profound Golden Illusion Array' in the area where Bai Xin would be tied up."
"Bai Feng, you are to spread out this news; you must make sure that it becomes public knowledge. Ao Ku, you are in charge of setting up the Profound Golden Illusion Array and watching over Bai Xin's surroundings. Once Hei Yu and his brothers appear, your first task is to notify me." The Peng Demon Emperor's gaze swept past.
Bai Feng and Ao Ku immediately bowed. "This subordinate accepts the order!"
