Heaven’s Devourer - Chapter 1438: Bright Star Ghostly King
Chapter 1438: Bright Star Ghostly King
That Dong Shen Ghostly King had a flash of brilliance in the last moment before his death and guessed that Wu Yu was not the real White-Eyed Ghostly Lord.
Of course, this epiphany would not change the conclusion. Wu Yu attacked coldly. With the terrifying strength gathered in his palm, he slapped the Submerged Cloud Seal onto the trapped Dong Shen Ghostly King. As Dong Shen Ghostly King screamed the last word ‘him’, the voidquakes reveberated and shattered the space that he was trapped in and his body was instantly torn into pieces!
Wu Yu had not thought that he could kill a third Tier Great Void Ghostly Realm Ghostly king so quickly! This was all beacuse of the suppression of the Maelstrom Silver Dagger Sphere. Of course, it was also because of his improvement in his Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth and Somersault Cloud.
Especially the Submerged Cloud Seal which had terrifying offensive power.
At the end, the Dong Shen Ghostly King died with an interesting mix of expressions. His despair, reluctance, anger, and struggle flashed across his face in his dying moments. However, faced with the power of the Submerged Cloud Seal, the suppressed Dong Shen Ghostly King could not change his doomed fate.
In fact, Wu Yu would never let him live when he had discovered his true identity.
In that last moment, Wu Yu allowed him a peek of the Qing Xuan Immortal Lord’s face. Indeed, before he died, the Dong Shen Ghostly King’s expression became even more colorful.
Of course, that interesting expression disappeared in the next second.
At this moment, Wu Yu withdrew his palm and pulled everything that was destroyed in the void towards himself. The three heavenly rules would definitely boost his dao and insight greatly. Of course, as the Heaven Devouring Titanic Beast, Wu Yu devoured his meal directly and grow in strength directly.
In the blink of an eye, he devoured the Dong Shen Ghostly King. He did it very discretely. Hence even if someone saw it, they would only think that Wu Yu was training with the ghostly spirit of a ghostly immortal. After all, there were many ghostly immortals who used ghostly spirits and their bodies to create various kinds of evil ghosts and vengeful spirits.
They had not seen the Heaven Devouring Titanic Beast before, so how would they know that there was a scary beast that could grow stronger just by devouring?
The reason why Wu Yu devoured discreetly was because at the last moment of the battle, he noticed that his battle had attracted someone’s attention. She had already seen how Wu Yu killed the Dong Shen Ghostly King and now, she was standing behind him.
Of course, when Wu Yu’s face transformed into the Qing Xuan Immortal Lord, his back was facing her. Hence, she did not see the transformation.
After the void shattered, it would not return to its original state and would remain there for a long time. Wu Yu digested a little of the Dong Shen Ghostly King. His white eyes were cold and merciless. As he turned around, he said: “Is the young palace master interested in me? Otherwise, why would you look at me so intently?”
Wu Yu was not worried that she would realise his true identity, because as an outsider, it was not possible for her to understand the meaning of Dong Shen Ghostly King’s last words “you aren’t him”. She might even think that it was just an incomplete sentence.
When Wu Yu turned back, he saw an elegant purple haired, purple eyed beauty with a cold expression standing in the depths of the storm. She was another stunning beauty coveted by Full Moon of Nanshan. She was one of the most beautiful of Hell. She was fair with a glowing complexion and moved gracefully. She was, after all, the daughter of the Qin Sha Forgiveness Sect Heavenly Palace Master. Compared to the Dhrtarastra’s daughter, she was mysterious and cold with the characteristic aura of a ghostly immortal. There were countless in the 10,000 Levels of Hell who had wanted to be her dao companion.
This beauty was Qin Yunling.
She was so surprised by what she had witnessed, that Wu Yu managed to kill a ghostly king who was under her father’s command. She moved her pale purple lips and said: “When I saw you defeating your sister, I knew that you have the combat power comparable to a ghostly king. The mystique that you just used is truly scary to be powerful enough for you to eliminate such a strong opponent. It seems like the people in Astral Hell, including your father, have underestimated you. You look like you are fooling around, but in fact, you are just bearing the humiliation to achieve greater heights. You are indeed skillful.”
Wu Yu acknowleged her words and smiled: “I don’t know if this kind of performance can win the heart of the young palace master.”
Qin Yunling’s guess was actually wrong. Wu Yu did not really bear any humiliation. He just transformed into the White-Eyed Ghostly Lord and wore his shell. Of course, if she believed that to be the truth, she might see Wu Yu as a courageous and respectable ghostly immortal. Therefore, her attitude was quite good. Even if Wu Yu was flirting with her, she still smiled slightly and said: “Stop acting, this is not your true nature. After watching your battle, I think you are quite admirable.”
This was truly a misunderstanding…… The true nature of the White-Eyed Ghostly Lord was definitely not something worth admiring. After seeing Wu Yu’s performance, she actually filled in the gaps with what little she knew about him using her overactive imagination.
Wu Yu did not know whether to cry or laugh.
Fortunately, the other party did not find out about his real secret. However, she still saw how he killed the Dong Shen Ghostly King, so he had to be careful. Hence, Wu Yu asked: “Young palace master, if there is nothing else, I shall take my leave first.”
Qin Yunling looked slyly at him and said: “Weren’t you just flirting with me? Why are you leaving so soon? As I expected, you have been putting on a farce all along. But, you can’t leave yet.”
Wu Yu was caught off guard and asked: “Why not? Is there anything else that you need me for?”
Qin Yunling answered: “I think that you are very capable and interesting. Besides, you do not stand a chance in getting the 10th Grade Mark of an Immortal King. Coincidentally, at the moment I’m lacking a capable aide. If you can help me to get the 10th Grade Mark of an Immortal King, I will be sure to reward you handsomely. The rewards would depend on your contribution. If you have done well, I can even reward you with a 8th Grade Mark of an Immortal King.”
It turned out that Qin Yunling was trying to retain Wu Yu for his capabilities.
Indeed, when Wu Yu killed the Dong Shen Ghostly King, it meant that in this Maelstrom Silver Dagger Sphere, he was stronger than the Dong Shen Ghostly King. Wu Yu would be a capable aide. Besides, Qin Yunling did not have anyone helping her at the moment. Even if she had a Ghostly king Hell master on her side, he would not be able to help her directly. After all, they still had to play by the rules of the game.
Of course, Wu Yu was a factor beyond the rules of the game. Getting the support of an Immortal Lord Realm Immortal Lord would not be considered as breaking the rules of the game.
Wu Yu naturally understood what she wanted.
“What if I turn down the offer?”
“Actually, I’m not really keen on this too. However, I do appreciate your abilities. If you reject my offer, then I can only let it slip and inform the Astral Hell master on what I saw just now.” Qin Yunling crossed her hands behind her back and looked at Wu Yu with amused eyes. She knew what Wu Yu would choose to do. After all, who wouldn’t be willing to stay beside such a beauty.
“Alright, stop hesitating. Even if you get the 10th Grade Mark of an Immortal King, it will be snatched away by your father and gifted to your younger sister. If the treasure is mine, would he still dare to take it?” Qin Yunling asked again.
Wu Yu was considering his options as well.
If he did not support her, she might really tell on him. If she really did tell on him, the Chakravarti Ghostly King would never let him go. He was going to remain in the Maelstrom Silver Dagger Sphere for some time. It would be inconvenient to have the Chakravarti Ghostly King on his tail.
At this point, everyone was wandering about the Maelstrom Silver Dagger Sphere aimlessly. Qin Yunling was not weak. Perhaps he would stand a higher chance in getting the 10th Grade Mark of an Immortal King by travelling with Qin Yunling.
She thought that she was from a high status and Wu Yu would only be too willing to work for her. She had also believed that Wu Yu was not qualified to compete. This was the reason why she was not guarding against him. Her carelessness would give Wu Yu the opportunity to snatch the 10th Grade Mark of an Immortal King. On the other hand, once exposed, Wu Yu’s identity of the White-Eyed Ghostly Lord would no longer be useful in Hell.
Anyway, there was no harm with getting her support. Besides, with her around now, even if he bumped into the Chakravarti Ghostly King, the Chakravarti Ghostly King would not be able to suppress and confine him.
Therefore, he responded quickly and said: “Then I shall galdly be at your beck and call. It’s a blessing that I can follow someone like young palace master. I haven’t seen such a beautiful woman like you in my life. If it weren’t for the young palace master being a nobility, which a toad like me could never match up to. It would already be offensive to try to court you.”
“You have already offended me. You are really the most daring person that I have ever seen.” Qin Yunling was not angry. She knew her charms and used it to attract Wu Yu to work for her. This was one of her leverage. At least, she thought that Wu Yu who could bear the humiliation and hide his strength would definitely be a good helper. What’s more, even the Hell master did not dare to offend her. How would a mere White-Eyed Ghostly Lord have the courage to go against the Qin Sha Forgiveness Sect Heavenly Palace Master?
Wu Yu trailed behind her eagerly as the White-Eyed Ghostly Lord.
“Jokes aside, what do you know about this Maelstrom Silver Dagger Sphere?” Qin Yunling asked him seriously.
“I don’t know. I’m just wandering around aimlessly. There’s no change for the time being.”
“I remember that you entered the Prismatic Thunderball before. Tell me about the situation there.”
Wu Yu told her the truth. Everyone knew that the Chakravarti Ghostly King had sealed off the Prismatic Thunderball for so long. Wu Yu could not blatantly lie and say that he did not enter the Prismatic Thunderball.
“The Prismatic Thunderball has a completely different epochal immortal design. Whereas this place is more like a maze. But there must be some clues here to break this maze. I reckon that there will also be those Rainbow Pearls here. I really don’t know where the three immortal lords have hidden. At present, we must get that Rainbow Pearl to have a chance to compete……”
She was very clear minded.
Wu Yu was using the true nature of the White-Eyed Ghostly Lord to openly admire the great beauty beside him.
“Stop staring or I shall dig your eyeballs out. The reason why I want you to follow me is because of your extraordinary abilities. Do not cross the line. Do not think that something will happen between us!” Qin Yunling was annoyed by his open leering and scolded him.
“Alright, alright.” Wu Yu stopped with his excessive leering. The difference in status between Qin Yunling and the White-Eyed Ghostly Lord was so great that it would be difficult for the White-Eyed Ghostly Lord to be treated with respect. If this was the case for the White-Eyed Ghostly Lord, then Wu Yu who had no background would only be treated worse.
The two of them travelled around the Maelstrom Silver Dagger Sphere and searched for the clues to the contest for the 10th Grade Mark of an Immortal King at the same time. During these few days, they saw others from afar and avoided bumping into them. At the moment, their search had not come into fruition, nor have they heard that anyone else have found anything. At the moment, everyone was searching peacefully and no fights have broken out yet.
“Why have we not found it yet!” Qin Yunling was losing her patience.
They continued in their search. Suddenly, one day, someone called out from behind: “White-Eyed Ghostly Lord!”
Wu Yu turned back and realised that it was the Chakravarti Ghostly King and his supporter, another ghostly king. This ghostly king was the Chakravarti Ghostly King’s blood-related younger brother. He was the White-Eyed Ghostly Lord’s uncle and called the Bright Star Ghostly King. He was a third Tier Great Void Ghostly Realm Ghostly king and slightly stronger than the Dong Shen Ghostly King.
He called out to Wu Yu with a fierce tone and immediately gave chase. It looked like he wanted to catch Wu Yu. However, at this moment, Qin Yunling turned back as well and her presence shocked the Chakravarti Ghostly King.
