Chapter 2043: Blackie Takes to the Field
Although the primordial ancestral spirit above Mu Lingxi was very faint, the aura it unleashed was as vast as the abyss.
At a glance, the primordial ancestral spirit seemed to be sitting on the vast void, and the stars were tiny before it. It only needed to fan its phoenix wings a little to destroy countless of stars.
Such an imagery alone was no lesser than the engraving on the Demonstone Engraving.
Suppressed by the primordial ancestral spirit, Xiao Wuchang’s Demonstone Engraving suddenly quivered as the portrait on its surface dimmed, as if there was a force trying to pry it off Xiao Wuchang’s control.
“What is this? How could she unleashed such terrifying pressure?”
Xiao Wuchang was shocked, and grew inevitably flustered.
At this moment, Xiao Wuchang could no longer bother attacking as he wanted to take the Demonstone Engravings back as soon as he could, to prevent any slips.
On the side of the Black Demon Realm, the expressions of the various powerhouses became grim. Anyone could see that Xiao Wuchang was now in a very bad situation.
“It’s just an ice phoenix phantom, how is it so terrifying?”
Zuo Li’s eyes sharpened, and felt extreme wariness against the ice phoenix phantom.
Mo Sheng too was staring at the ice phoenix phantom as a thought struck him and a look of shock appeared in his eyes. “It’s the legendary Spirit Summoning. Kunlun Realm’s phoenix clan had long since fallen, and there’s no longer any pure-blooded phoenixes. How does one even cultivate the Heavenly Phoenix Body?”
As far as he knew, even the Demon God Realm’s phoenix clan, only a handful of Saint Kings could successfully perform the Spirit Summoning.
Not only the Demon God Realm, even the various worlds under the Celestial Court, those few monsters were all famous, and few would dare to provoke them.
Unlike the situation in Kunlun Realm, the phoenix clan in the Demon God Realm had always been one of the most powerful clans there, with a terrifying powerful background.
In a remote area thousands of miles away from the Sect of the Blood God, a figure stood quietly as she looked at the battlefield from a distance, her eyes locked onto Mu Lingxi.
She was beautiful and graceful woman with a very stunning figure. She wore a red dress, and from a far, she looked like a blazing flame.
The woman’s eyebrows were long and slender, like two willow leaves, her eyes were deep and bright, as if the stars were hidden inside it. With her taill nose and cherry-like mouth, her beauty was unparalleled as if she was a fairy that had descended from the heavens.
At the center of the woman’s eyebrows was a strange mark of flame, which added to a different kind of beauty.
If there was a cultivator from the Celestial Court here, one would immediately recognize that the lady was Fairy Huofeng of the Nine Immortal Beauties Portrait. She was a phoenix from the Demon God World, and herself was a pure-blooded Empyrean Flame Phoenix.
Fairy Huofeng not only had gorgeous looks, her bloodline was extremely powerful as well, with many people chasing after her heart.
“I did not expect someone to be able to cultivate the Heavenly Phoenix Body in Kunlun Realm. Although its only an Acquired Heavenly Phoenix Body, it was far better than the vast majority of my clanspeople.”
Fairy Huofeng whispered as a strange glint appeared in her eyes.
The Heavenly Phoenix Body were divided into three levels: Acquired, Innate and Primordial. Under normal circumstances, people would cultivate the Acquired Heavenly Phoenix Body, and only the Primordial Heavenly Phoenix with the strongest bloodline could directly cultivate an Innate Heavenly Phoenix Body.
As for the Primordial Heavenly Phoenix Body, it belonged in the legends, and across so many years, the number of people who had successfully cultivated were very few.
“Looking at the aura from her body, she should be the descendant of that legendary ice phoenix back in the Middle Ages. For a human to rouse that powerful bloodline, interesting.”
The corners of Fairy Huofeng’s mouth raised slightly, as a smile with a hidden meaning appeared.
After coming to Kunlun Realm for this long, Mu Lingxi could be regarded as the person who interested her the most.
Although the phoenix clan in Kunlun Realm had emigrated from Demon God Realm many many years ago, in any case, they were from the same stock.
One of the important purposes of Fairy Huofeng’s arrival to Kunlun Realm was to look for anything related to the phoenix clan. If she could get a great opportunity because of it, the better.
Now that she saw Mu Lingxi using the Spirit Summoning technique, for Fairy Huofeng, it was undoubtedly a great gain.
“Perhaps through her, I can find more information about that legendary ice phoenix.” Fairy Huofeng said to herself.
On the battlefield, Mu Lingxi used all her might to rouse the Primordial Ancestral Soul, and was not concerned about how big a commotion her Spirit Summoning technique had caused.
She had only one thought in mind right now, that was to capture the Demonic Blade Draw Portrait.
Sensing the connection between him and the Demonic Blade Draw Portrait was weakening bit by bit, Xiao Wuchang could not help but to be more and more anxious.
He knew very well if this continued, he will not be able to stop Mu Lingxi from taking the Demonic Blade Draw Portrait.
Gritting his teeth, Xiao Wuchang’s eyes revealed a menacing glint as he bit his tongue and spat out a big mouthful of blood.
“Heavenly Demon Blood Sacrifice.”
The essence blood stuck onto the black stone tablet, and was absorbed in an instant.
Such a secret technique would severely deplete one’s own energy and spirit, and would be difficult to recover afterwards.
But now with things as it is, Xiao Wuchang had no other choice. The Demonic Blade Draw Portrait was the foundation of his rise, and there was no room for losing it.
Activated by the secret technique, the black stone tablet suddenly vibrated violently, as if gained a life of its own. A terrifying surge of demonic aura began to recover, trying to break through the suppression of the Primordial Ancestral Spirit.
Mu Lingxi’s eyes became even sharper as she spat coldly. “Trying to stop me from suppressing the Demonstone Engraving? Wishful thinking!”
Saying that, Mu Lingxi changed her hand seal again, as the bloodline of the ice phoenix in her body was completely activated, and the Primordial Ancestral Spirit became even more corporeal.
Correspondingly, the power released by the Primordial Ancestral Spirit became stronger, almost crushing the heavens, as the entire realm became darker.
The Primordial Ancestral Spirit unleashed a terrifying power of the Dark Netherfrost, and its level was clearly far higher than of Mu Lingxi herself.
In an instant, the Demonstone Engraving that Xiao Wuchang had controlled was totally frozen in ice, completely severing the connection with the latter.
“Ugh, my Demonstone Engraving…”
Xiao Wuchang spat out blood, his eyes full of bitterness.
In a blink of an eye, the Demonstone Engraving that original belonged to him was now someone else’s. No matter what he did, he could no longer take it back.
Mu Lingxi took the frozen Demonic Blade Draw Portrait into her hand, saying faintly. “You’ve lost. With your strength, you simply don’t deserve to own the Demonic Blade Draw Portrait.”
“Give me back my Demonstone Engraving!” Xiao Wuchang roared again and again.
At this moment, he was completely maddened as he charged at Mu Lingxi in desperation.
A cold glint appeared in Mu Lingxi’s eyes, and with a wave of her hand, the Divine Planet struck at Xiao Wuchang brutally.
At the same time, the Primordial Ancestral Spirit she had summoned quickly faded and submerged into her body.
Spirit Summoning was a very taxing technique, and Mu Lingxi was still not very proficient in using it, so was unable to maintain it for a long time.
Speaking of which, this was the first time Mu Lingxi used the Spirit Summoning in combat, and the effect was not bad at all.
Without the Demonstone Engraving, Xiao Wuchang was like a toothless tiger, and was powerless to fight against the Divine Planet.
Taking the brunt of the Divine Planet’s attack, Xiao Wuchang was sent flying upside down, his body was full of cracks, was on the verge of breaking apart.
Just when Mu Lingxi wanted to follow up on the attack, and kill Xiao Wuchang, a figure appeared before Xiao Wuchang and blocked the Divine Planet with one hand.
Just at this moment, Zhang Ruochen’s figure appeared beside Mu Lingxi out of thin air.
Staring at the person who intervened, Zhang Ruochen’s eyes grew slightly colder as he said. “Mo Sheng, is the Black Demon Realm made out of sore losers? We have agreed to five gambit battles, and you had already interfered just after one battle. Aren’t you afraid of being a laughing stock of the various cultivators?”
Zhang Ruochen’s voice clearly entered the ears of everyone present, and causing many to be surprised.
Although they already knew they were doing a gambit battle, but they did not expect the battle to be five rounds. This was indeed a big deal.
How could Mo Sheng not understand what Zhang Ruochen was getting at and said coldly. “Since I’ve already agreed to the gambit battle with you, I naturally will not go back on my words. It’s just that this battle is already over, and there is no meaning for us to continue fighting. Let’s prepare for the next battle.”
As he said that, Mo Sheng lifted the seriously wounded Xiao Wuchang and turned into a stream of light as he returned to the Black Demon Realm camp.
Losing a Demonstone Engraving was a sin only redeemable by death, and Mo Sheng was not bothered by the life or death of a useless crap like Xiao Wuchang, but with so many watching, if Xiao Wuchang was killed by Mu Lingxi, it will undoubtedly cause damage to the Black Demon Realm’s honor.
Seing Mo Sheng leaving with Xiao Wuchang, Zhang Ruochen could not help but to look at Mu Lingxi, and asked softly. “Are you alright?”
Mu Lingxi smiled playfully, as she handed both Demonstone Engraving to Zhang Ruochen, saying. “Of course I’m alright. The task was successfully completed, and I didn’t let you down, yeah?”
“Lingxi, thank you.” Zhang Ruochen put away the two Demonstone Engravings with a wave of his hand, and then gently hugged Mu Lingxi into his arms.
The smile on Mu Lingxi’s face became even more brilliant, and her eyes was full of sweet happiness.
After a brief hug, Zhang Ruochen took Mu Lingxi back to the area outside the Sect of the Blood God’s protective formation.
“Junior sister, you are amazing!”
Bao Lie could not help but to give Mu Lingxi a big thumbs up.
“Lassie Ling Xi, not bad. What right does those ungrateful scums of the Black Demon Realm have to master the treasure of Kunlun Realm? Who’s going next?” As Blackie commended Mu Lingxi, it looked at Zhang Ruochen.
Zhang Ruochen smiled slightly and said. “Since you’re asking, then you’ll be up next. Don’t let me down.”
“With me taking the field, it’s as good as in our hands. Just wait and see.” Blackie said with full confidence.
Zhang Ruochen did not say much else, as he simply handed it one of the Demonstone Engraving and a Dimensional Teleportation Scroll.
To be honest, Zhang Ruochen did not know how strong Blackie was, but with it as an Array Master, there should not be much problem.
And he knew. Blackie was the type that hated to lose face, so it will dare not slack this time around. Otherwise, it will never be able to raise its head before them from now on.
Taking the Demonstone Engraving, Blackie flapped its wings and swaggered to the spot where Mu Lingxi and Xiao Wuchang had fought earlier.
Looking down at the Black Demon Realm encampment, Blackie’s eyes were full of disdain as it raised its head and said. “I am here, who shall fight me?”
“Just a mere owl dares to act high and mighty, ridiculous.” Zuo Li sneered.
Hearing the word ‘owl’, Blackie immediately went into a fit of fury, as its eyes widened and yelled. “Uncultured demon curs, your whole family are owls, lookng properly, I’m a phoenix!”
Zuo Li soared into the sky, and came opposite Blackie at top speed. It was obvious that he would represent the Black Demon Realm in this battle. “A phoenix? Soon you’ll be nothing but a pile of ashes.” Zuo Li snorted.
As he said that, Zuo Li started at the Demonstone Engraving beside Blackie. Xiao Wuchang was unable to capture the Demonic Frenzied Drake Portrait, so he had to do it himself.
At this moment Blackie looked at the Demonstone Engraving that Zuo Li had brought over. What was engraved on it was a picture of a ferocious tiger, and with a roar, countless stars was shattered, turning the entire sea of stars dark.
The Black Demon Realm had an exquisite intermediate-level saint art, called the Godkiller Tiger Roar, which was derived from this Demonic Tiger Roar Portrait.
Zuo Li’s eyes were sharp as he immediately launched an attack.
He blasted a palm strike out, as his Heavenly Demon Qi transformed into a black drake claw that struck Blackie like a bolt of lightning.
Blackie could not react in time and was immediately blasted away by the dragon claw.
Seeing this, Zuo Li could not help but sneer out loud. “Feeble, is the Sect of the Blood God that short on talents that Zhang Ruochen sent this trash out?”
In his opinion, Zhang Ruochen’s dispatch of Blackie to fight was literally gifting him the Demonstone Engraving.
“Little junior brother, is that bird going to be alright?” Bao Lie frowned, feeling that Blackie was unreliable.
Not just Bao Lie, even Jin Yu and the others were also worried. They all hoped that Blackie will bring back another Demonstone Engraving, and if Blackie could only use the Dimensional Teleportation Scroll to flee, then the Black Demon Realm will immediately stop the gambit battle.
If that was the case, it would be difficult to recapture the remaining Demonstone Engravings.
Only Zhang Ruochen appeared very calm, and was not anxious at all. With his understanding of Blackie, the latter would not be defeated that easily.
And on the Black Demon Realm’s encampment, many cultivators showed excitement on their faces, feeling that victory was already Zuo Li’s.
As long as Zuo Li could win this round, he will undoubtedly be able to save a lot of face for the Black Demon Realm, and make up for the loss.
If Zuo Li were to get the true engraving of the Demonic Frenzied Dragon Portrait, his strength will increase greatly, and could at least reach the third level beneath a Supreme Saint. And that was undoubtedly of great significance to the Black Demon Realm.
At the same time, those cultivators who were watched the battle from a distance were in an uproar.
“Is that owl here for comedic effect? It was send flying so easily by Zuo Li.”
“With Zuo Li strength, even if that owl does not die, it will be seriously injured. I never expected this battle to end so quickly. Boring.”
“No, if Zhang Ruochen allowed it to fight, it shouldn’t be that weak. Does Zhang Ruochen not have any better candidates on his side?”
“A pity, they had just won a Demonstone Engraving back, and is now about to hand one back to the enemy. I didn’t expect Zhang Ruochen to make such a mistake.”
Just as everyone thought the battle was over, a red light suddenly blasted out from the ground. It was no one else but Blackie.
At this moment, Blackie was furious as its feathers were bristling, as it hissed. “You damned demon cur. You dare to sneak attack me. I will make you pay for this!”
“How can that be?”
Zuo Li’s eyes widened in disbelief.
His attack earlier was absolutely not weak, and anyone who taken the full brunt of it would suffer, yet Blackie was unscathed, which was totally unreasonable.
Amidst his shock, Zuo Li struck again, as he blasted out his Demonstone Engraving like a lightning bolt.
Blackie reacted half a moment too slow as he was blasted into the ground again.
“I want to see if your body is tougher, or the Demonstone Engraving is tougher.” Zuo Li hissed coldly.
The ground blasted open again as countless of debris flew into the air.
Blackie rose into the air and roared angrily. “Bloody hell I’m mad, do you only know how to sneak attack?”
“What manner of monster is it?” Zuo Li’s heart sank.
At this moment, all of the cultivators were stunned, as they did not what to say. No one had thought that this battle would be so comical.
