“You…” The impersonator who had the appearance of Luo Hua City Mistress cried out, “You are so ruthless!”
“Thank you for your compliment!” Yue Yang threw the demon heart in his hands to one side. Hui Tai Lang immediately scurried over and sniffed at it, however, the usually greedy Hui Tai Lang didn’t eat it immediately.
“Let’s die together!” That impersonator suddenly shrieked fiercely.
“Come here quickly, she is going to explode!” Luo Hua City Mistress noticed there was something wrong and immediately called out to Yue Yang to return. Yue Yang shook his hands, signalling to her that he was okay, all the while looking down on the impersonator. The impersonator’s figure suddenly transformed, and with a flash of dark light, Luo Hua City Mistress’ beautiful appearance had disappeared, replaced with an ugly woman whose face was filled with wrinkles. She looked extremely old; her skin sagged, her eyes hollow, her neck swollen as if there was a huge tumor inside, and her breasts were incomparably shrivelled, the two ugly sacks dangling twistedly from her wizened ribcage. It looked extremely disgusting.
Her previously slim and taut stomach had quickly expanded like a ball. There were also strange black spot that started to faintly appear on her stomach.
Her two legs had quickly dried up, turning into withered bones.
Hui Tai Lang jumped in fright and scurried away, but it still couldn’t escape the dark space no matter what.
Seeing that Yue Yang didn’t enter Luo Hua City Mistress’ shield, it also didn’t dare to enter and seek protection. Finally, it pathetically hid behind Yue Yang’s body, its two heads lying on the ground. It raised both of its paws trying to cover its eyes, however, it only managed to cover its left head’s eyes, leaving its right head exposed. It became extremely troubled.
Right at the moment when the impersonator shriek her intention to blow up together with Yue Yang, Yue Yang immediately kicked Hui Tai Lang’s butt into Luo Hua City Mistress’ shield, before entering it himself.
Behind him, a loud explosion reverberated.
The whole sky was filled with scattered blood and flesh.
Some parts were even sprinkled on the shield, but it was immediately rebounded away, falling to the ground instead.
The dark space disappeared without a trace. Other than the splatters of flesh and blood scattered all over the ground, it was as if nothing had happened before. Yue Yang surveyed the surrounding for a while before a frown appeared on his face.
“What’s wrong?” Luo Hua City Mistress asked in concern, “Is there something wrong?”
“There are no other Earth-ranked Demon fellows chasing after us…” Yue Yang’s tone appeared to sound a little disappointed as he sighed.
“Idiot, hahahhahaa!” Luo Hua City Mistress immediately laughed out loudly, maybe even too much, as she gave a light punch on Yue Yan’s chest and said, “Silly brat, let me tell you. No one will immediately attack again after their plan had failed. They definitely won’t come. Think about it, if they have a 100% confidence in killing us, why would they resort to tricks? Furthermore, we are not even sure if this Demon Servant was someone sent by the Demonic Palace. Although the Demonic Palace is aggressive, brazen and crazy enough to do this, they are not fools…”
“So you think that this demon who can take over other’s appearances is not sent by the Demonic Palace?” Yue Yang had already guessed this possibility when he was surveying the surrounding just now, but he did not expect that Luo Hua City Mistress had also thought the same thing.
“This monster is usually called ‘Demon Servants’. They are not very strong, at the most, they are only as strong as a Level 5 [Grandmaster]. However, they are extremely illogical. They are willing to risk anything for their convictions, even their own lives. Demon Servants are usually created by strong, high-leveled Corrupted Warriors with the help of the power from the Demon Abyss. There are both male and female Demon Servants, and they are all extremely loyal. They are also very brave, unafraid of death, willing to die for their master anytime. Furthermore, they are experts in disguise; Although there are not that many Demon Servants that can execute such a detailed Morphing Technique like that one just now, there are still quite a few of them. These Demon Servants are not specific to the Demonic Palace alone, various countries in the Soaring Dragon Continent also owned them.” Luo Hua City Mistress’ face suddenly became serious, “They won’t divulge their identity in most cases, but there’s a limit to their Morphing Technique. They can probably only morph for a few dozen times, because it drains the essence in their body heavily. Seeing that Demon Servant’s dried up body just now, seems like it was nearing death. That’s why she could act so crazily, her intention was to die together with us.”
“Why did you think that she wasn’t sent by the Demonic Palace?” Yue Yang nodded, before asking again.
“Are you trying to test me?” Luo Hua City Mistress sent Yue Yang a look. She already know that this brat had also noticed it and that he was merely curious about how she had known it herself. She couldn’t help but give him a light punch again, “If I couldn’t even discern this, how can I become a City Mistress! If she was really someone from the Demonic Palace, she would definitely not mention Demonic Palace at all. Since she had said it, that would mean she intended to shift the blame to the Demonic Palace. Especially after her plan has failed; if she was really someone from the Demonic Palace, she should have shifted the blame to others!”
“Then who in this world would want to implicate the Demonic Palace?” Yue Yang could guess the first point, but he couldn’t guess who would want to do such a thing.
“That’s difficult to say, it might probably be…” Luo Hua City Mistress hesitated a little as she reached her fingers out and wrote two words on Yue Yang’s palms, making Yue Yang extremely shocked.
Yue Yang’s mouth moved a little, but he didn’t ask anything in the end.
He only nodded silently.
Seeing his pondering expression, Luo Hua City Mistress curiously asked him back, “What are you guessing right now, silly brat?”
Yue Yang grabbed her hands, as if he wanted to write something on her palm too. However, Luo Hua City Mistress was extremely ticklish, and she didn’t allow him to do so. In reality, Yue Yang’s act of trying to write on her palms was fake, he only wanted to hold the beauty’s hand and take an advantage of the situation. Luo Hua City Mistress’ hands were so soft and tender that Yue Yang couldn’t bear to let go after holding them in his hands. However, if Luo Hua City Mistress caught on this brat’s rotten intentions, he wouldn’t be able to avoid the accusation.
In order to distract Luo Hua City Mistress, Yue Yang hurriedly said his own opinions after observing the situation, “I saw two identical marks on both Black-winged Tan Wu Fang and Luminous Demon Ding Zang’s body. Seems like that was the Demonic Palace symbol.”
“Yes, that’s the Demonic Palace insignia. There’s one in every Corrupted Warrior’s body.” Luo Hua City Mistress was successfully distracted by Yue Yang.
“However, on that Demon Servant’s body just now, I did not see the same insignia. I started to suspect that she was not from the Demonic Palace then. There is also another point. Every Demonic Palace members, no matter if it is Black-winged Tan Wu Fang, Luminous Demon Ding Zang or the other Corrupted Warriors, all of them don’t possess a demon heart. This demon heart can only belong to Demon Generals and higher-ranked Demons in the Demon Abyss… The weird thing is that Hui Tai Lang, who really like to eat Demon Hearts, had actually ignored it. It is obvious that this demon heart is also fake. It did not have the true power of a demon heart, that’s why Hui Tai Lang refused to eat it. The third point is that demons that have two demon hearts are usually Demon Commanders. The Demon Commander Ma Li Ang that we fought previously possessed two demon hearts, and he was extremely strong. However, this impersonator who similarly had two demon hearts was extremely weak… The demon hearts in her body was simply a fake appearance to make others think that she was powerful, when she was actually trash in reality! That’s why I feel that she’s not from the Demonic Palace. Furthermore, if the Demonic Palace had really wanted to ambush us, they would have done it here instead of killing us after teleporting us to another place…” Yue Yang was still holding Luo Hua City Mistress’ hands tightly as he explained his judgement.
“The place that I wrote to you just now had been cultivating Demon Servants for a long while. I just don’t understand why they would do such a thing, but I can be certain that this is not a good thing. No matter if it is the Demonic Palace or the people from that place that are targeting us, we have to be very careful! Okay now, since the danger has already passed, please let go of my hands.”
Luo Hua City Mistress tried to pull her hands away, but Yue Yang had held it tightly and refused to let go.
Instead, he flung her arms to his back, intending to carry her on his back again.
She had tried to rebuke him for his rough treatment initially, standing firm on the ground and clamping her legs tight, refusing to let him carry her. However, as his wolfy paws tried to spread her feet apart, she felt that his actions was extremely indecent and embarassing. If she continued to fight him, she would lose her face if anyone saw them this way. Hence, she immediately relaxed her feet and lean forward onto his back.
Her hands punched lightly on his head. She was trying to show that she was angry and wanted to punish him, but that strength on her punch was not even enough to kill a mosquito.
Her mouth, on the other hand, harrumphed loudly, “Fail! This kind of personal Guard Captain is simply too incompetent!”
Yue Yang smiled like a rogue and said, “Deduct it from my pay! I didn’t want to be paid anyway, hahaha!”
Luo Hua City Mistress felt that his hot, wolfy hands were about to misbehave again, and hurriedly reached her hands down, slapping his hand away. “Hey, losing control once is enough, do you intend to do bad things in broad daylight?”
“Understood. Next time I will sneakily and surreptitiously do bad things!” Yue Yang’s reply made Luo Hua City Mistress laugh non-stop again.
This brat was really flippant and glib-tongued, she really couldn’t do anything to him.
Seeing its master soaking in the bliss of romance, Hui Tai Lang approached the three-tailed Snow Fox too, planning to win favor from it.
It was only trying to learn from its master!
Alas, who would know that the three-tailed Snow Fox had a high standard in choosing friends, and had completely ignored Hui Tai Lang instead? It proudly stick its soft tails up, stepping forward gracefully as it followed its master from behind. It didn’t even give Hui Tai Lang a glance from the corner of its eyes. However, seeing such a lofty demeanour, Hui Tai Lang had actually drooled instead. Its wolfy eyes lighted up. With regards to chasing girls, it should chase a proud one like this! Hui Tai Lang hurriedly chased after it and walked alongside the little Snow Fox, then used its most proficient foreign language to hit on the beauty, “Awooo woof, woof woof, woof woof woof!”
“…” The three-tailed Snow Fox turned its head, signalled that it didn’t understand this foreign language and told Hui Tai Lang not to waste its breath.
“Meow!” Hui Tai Lang tried another foreign language again.
“…” The three-tailed Snow Fox was still aloof after hearing it. Hui Tai Lang’s foreign language attack had all failed. This little Snow Fox was a fox, not a dog nor a cat, it would be weird if it could understand dog and cat languages.
“Shut up, don’t disturb me chasing girls!” Yue Yang found that his romantic two person world with Luo Hua City Mistress had been smashed by Hui Tai Lang’s babbles, and was extremely angered.
Seeing its master angry, Hui Tai Lang immediately pretended to be obedient and good.
In the end, Luo Hua City Mistress started to laugh after watching its hilarious acts. Even the three-tailed little Snow Fox also seemed to laugh in secret.
Two days later, at the bottom of the mountain of the Cloud Peak Lake in Despair Abyss.
As it was inconvenient to climb the steep cliff, Yue Yang left Hui Tai Lang and the three-tailed Snow Fox at the bottom of the mountain. He reminded Hui Tai Lang over and over again to protect the three-tailed Snow Fox while he and Luo Hua City Mistress climbed the steep mountain cliff. The Blood Queen could fly thousand meters high, but she couldn’t carry Luo Hua City Mistress or Yue Yang up the cliff. There was an unseen force in this cliff that not even Luo Hua City Mistress knew the cause of. To reach the top of the mountain, even the Bloody Queen, who could originally fly thousand meters high over mountains had to stop at around 500 meters out of of the 3000 meters high cliff. She also had to use her hands and feet to climb the mountain instead of flying up.
If she leave this Cloud Peak Lake, her flying ability will immediately return to normal.
There seemed to be a different space, an invisible restriction.
Luo Hua City Mistress was tired after climbing, so Yue Yang had bound her to his back with a rope. She was very light anyway, she wasn’t of any burden to Yue Yang at all. He had climbed to around 2000 meters high before he saw the Bloody Queen waiting near a platform above. She was screaming non-stop as she pointed at the fog and cloud above.
Yue Yang hurriedly climbed onto the small platform and looked upwards. He realized there was a few big letters written above.
However, he couldn’t read any of them.
“This is a Summoning Seal… This must be a Restriction Spell from an Ancient Summoning Pattern. The God’s Ruins was filled with such letters.” Luo Hua City Mistress took out a silk handkerchief to wipe Yue Yang’s sweat and said sweetly, “Rest a while while I record these summoning seal down. Maybe I can break the spell later on!”
“It’s just a few letters, yet it can restrict this whole space?” Yue Yang felt that the power of summoning was extremely terrifying. It wasn’t restricted to plants or beasts, it could even affect dimension, light, mental and soul. There were even scriptures and spells… Right now, the Soaring Dragon Continent could only scratch the surface of the art of summoning.
“It was said that this was left behind by the human warriors from Ancient times. Ancient mankind are really strong, we are only peeking at their footprints right now!” Luo Hua City Mistress nodded surely, “This is also a piece of wisdom that our Ancient ancestors had left us, it’s a pity that there was no one among us who can succeed it!”
Yue Yang was about to say something, but he suddenly felt his mind was shaken, as if something had suddenly came out from his body.
Under Luo Huo City Mistress’ eyes, she saw an unimaginable wonder.
The wonder appeared right before her eyes…
