Chapter 35 – Supreme Sword

Yue Yang gave off a tyrannical air as he traced the edge of his exquisite dagger with his finger.

“You can say your last words now.” Yue Yang looked off into the distance, purposely ignoring Xie Huo. He knew that Xie Huo would not be willing to accept defeat; he was bound to summon an even stronger beast to try and reverse the battle.

Yue Yang wanted to use tonight’s battle as a proper test of his own strength, and determine exactly which realm he had ascended to.

Yue Yang didn’t think defeating Wu Yi and Xie Huo was difficult at all. But he wanted to manipulate the circumstances so that the situation would prove to be more challenging, which would allow him to experience as many battles as possible. Constant training would enrich his battle experience. Bloody battles were fickle things. Even though he had a lot of potential, he wouldn’t be able to achieve a desirable outcome in an encounter with a powerful enemy if he slacked off in his training. It might even prove to be difficult for him to make it out alive.

Yue Yang didn’t know exactly how powerful the experts in this world were. But since he first came out from the black hole space, he had realized one inescapable fact: In the past, the Soaring Dragon Continent had experts that could easily defeat Empress Fei Wen Li and seal her for 10,000 years.

Did all those experts die off?

Yue Yang felt that the answer to this question was most probably no.

Even if there was currently no top Rankers in Soaring Dragon Continent, there would most likely be some in Tong Tian Tower. Legends said that only [Sage]-ranked people could set foot into heaven. If such people existed, how could there be a lack of top Rankers?

Experts like the one that sealed Empress Fei Wen Li for 10,000 years were obviously not people that Yue Yang could go up against. That’s why what he needed to do now was to constantly cultivate and grow stronger.

Grow stronger, and then grow stronger even more. He had to become the strongest person in the world.

This was Yue Yang’s greatest ambition.

With the Innate Invisible Sword Qi method, Yue Yang had never worried about his future. However, he still wished to improve himself and achieve a greater realm by cultivating diligently and raising battle awareness. People like Rock, Tie Kuang, Wu Yi, and Xie Huo were just stepping stones on his path….by stepping on their bodies, he’d be striding towards his goal of becoming stronger and greater. This was the most important thing he needed to do right now.

“Spare me!” While Wu Yi’s words were still stuck in his throat, the dagger went straight through his mouth and out through the back of his head.

“Wow, these last words were quite concise.” Yue Yang casually shrugged his shoulders.

The surrounding warriors watched, completely speechless.

Everyone knew that Wu Yi wouldn’t be able to survive. However, until now , no one had imagined that a Level 3 Hero like Wu Yi would receive such an ending.

The light in Wu Yi’s eyes dimmed and his wavering flame of life extinguished before he even realised it. The frightened Battle Eagle that had been circling around in the sky the whole time immediately deserted its contractor once Wu Yi died. It flapped its wings and charged off into the darkness, running for its life.

“The only one left is you, Xie Huo.” Yue Yang turned to look at Xie Huo, who had been silent the whole time. That bastard should still have some remaining skills, what kind of unexpected move will he show next? Yue Yang contemplated silently.

“I know that I can’t survive past tonight. However, I will bring you down together with me. Let me tell you, as long as there’s human and some blood, I can summon a terrifying Devil King that can decimate all of White Stone City…hahaha…hahahahahahaha….” Xie Huo evil laughter was extremely sinister, making everyone’s hair stand on their ends.

What exactly was Xie Huo planning?

The observing warriors all shuddered involuntarily. A terrifying devil king that could decimate all of White Stone City?

At the very least, this would mean it had to be a demon of the Golden King Beast level, right?

The Guard Leader quickly reacted. He unsheathed the longsword at his side and bellowed, commanding everyone to charge, attempting to block the already crazed Xie Huo. However, as soon as the soldiers jumped off of the building’s balcony, countless black lumps of flames erupted around Xie Huo’s body.

These flames were like will-o-wisps from the underworld.

Xie Huo laughed loudly. With a wave of his hands, the countless flames shot out in all directions like meteors, flying towards the surrounding warriors, as well as the female singers on top of the lively tavern platform.

“Ah….”

The people that had been hit by the strange, black flames immediately caught on fire.

The frail female singers cried out in pain, as they each combusted in the raging flames. Before they could even struggle or beg for help, they had all been charred to death. Fresh blood and ruined limbs exploded outwards, littering the ground.

The most horrifying part was that even the exploded blood and limbs themselves were still burning in an inextinguishable flame.

The ground and the walls that had also been struck similarly erupted into flames, burning ceaselessly.

Some of the warriors had managed to dodge the attacks, but the black flames automatically chased after them as if they were alive. They chased after their targets before smashing directly onto them. No one managed to escape, except for the few warriors with the quickest reaction speeds.

The Guard Leader waved his longsword around, chopping at the black flames.

His sword was also burning as it slashed through the black balls of flames. It directly burned his hand, making it impossible for him to control it properly. Seeing this scene, the few surviving warriors and guards had deathly expressions, “Heavens, this is Hell’s Fire. Inextinguishable Hell’s Fire…. Xie Huo must have summoned a demon from hell. We’re screwed, screwed, we’re all screwed!”

There were also many balls of fire in front of Yue Yang.

He lifted his hand and easily blasted apart the flames with wind, causing them to ricochet to the ground. The surrounding bricks were all set ablaze by the black flames.

In the far distance, he could see that none of the flames managed to enter into the light red Halo Shield. Dozens of fireballs spluttered in front of it, but they instantly disappeared without a trace upon touching the Halo Shield. Yue Yang was relieved to find that the Halo Shield was safe and sound.

Xie Huo looked at Yue Yang and laughed wickedly.

He pulled out a sharp, curved blade from his waist, and walked in front of Yue Yang. Then he slashed at his own abdomen, causing his intestines to spill out onto the ground.

“I offer all lives and fresh blood offerings to the Demon King Ha Xin that I revered. Your lowly follower provides his blood and soul to call on our Lord’s presence, Ha Xin. Decimate this entire area, display your supreme power!” Xie Huo waved his blade, cutting apart his internal organs and scattering them into the air. His expression was beyond crazed, and eyes flashed with a fanatical glint.

“…” Yue Yang knitted his brows. He had completely raised his guard, prepared to meet the summoned Demon Lord with all his strength.

“Kill Xie Huo, hurry, hurry!” The Guard Leader was so anxious that he had begun to tear up.

“WAHHH!” The surviving warriors swallowed their fear, and charged altogether.

“Too late, hahahaha. You will all die with me, and we shall meet once more in hell. When that time comes, I will definitely welcome you hospitably.” Xie Hua laughed madly. His body rumbled, and then exploded into countless fragments of blood and fire. The few warriors that had just been attempting to attack Xie Huo was immediately killed in the explosion, their bodies blasted into millions of tiny pieces.

The Guard Leader had also received heavy damage. He fell to the ground, and vomited blood endlessly.

Out of the hundreds of people in the entire battlefield, aside from Yue Yang and the unconscious bright eyed thief, the Guard Leader was the only survivor…

His right leg was caught in the black flames which began to spread quickly.

“Ah!” The Guard Leader bit down hard, and then forcibly cut off his entire right leg. He used both his arms to support his body, and pull himself away from the blazing floor. He loudly shouted at Yue Yang, “Hurry up and leave the White Stone City immediately. Get as far away as you possibly can; Xie Huo used his life as a sacrifice to summon a demon from Hell. This place will soon turn into hell!”

The air around the place that Xie Huo had self-exploded suddenly split apart, causing the Guard Leader to cry out in shock.

An enormous rift gradually opened up mid air, revealing a portal.

However, what made Yue Yang’s heart race even more was that this 10m tall giant portal was still not large enough to allow the Demon King from hell to come out.

He only saw his two hands stretching out from the portal, burning with Hell’s Fire. Its giant arms were covered with sharp, blood scales, forcibly forcing the crimson portal open. It seemed to want to pull the portal a bit larger, wanting to quickly leave the distant deep pool of magic and enter the Soaring Dragon Continent. If Yue Yang were to allow this terrifying demon to come out unimpeded, then he would be a huge idiot.

He had been waiting for a chance this whole time; this was exactly the opportunity the heavens bestowed on him to mount a sneak attack.

“Binding Chains!” Yue Yang chanted in his mind, using Little Wen Li’s Binding Chains to fight against the terrifying demon.

What shocked him was that the Binding Chains that had been able to restrain the Bronze Barbaric Bull and the Rock Golem for ten seconds couldn’t even give Yue Yang 1 second of time.

That meant he had to attack within one second. Otherwise, the Binding Chains would fail.

Without the Binding Chains, that terrifying monster would immediately come out, and White Stone City…..would be doomed.

Yue Yang was confident that he could escape the terrifying demon if it pursued him, but there was no way his godmother and her little girl living in White Stone City would be able to.

“I’ll kill you.” Yue Yang’s eyes flashed like stars. This was the first time he was using his strongest attack since he had transcended dimensions. The Innate Invisible Sword Qi burst out at full strength. Brilliant rays of light flashed from his arms like a rainbow, and they began to revolve around him. All of his Innate Qi had gathered together and formed a sword of destruction. It viciously lashed out at the heart of the terrifying demon’s body still within the portal.

If this attack hit, Yue Yang believed that it would be able to instantly kill an experienced battle-type beasts that had high vitality and resilience, or even a gigantic, enormous beast like this on the spot.

This, was Yue Yang’s Supreme Sword.

What effect would this attack have on the terrifying demon? Would it mortally wound it, or have absolutely no effect?

Yue Yang had no way of determining the answer, but this was currently the most powerful weapon in his arsenal. With Chains of Binding and the support from his giant shadow that had been strengthened a hundred times, plus the Innate Invisible Sword Qi skill: Supreme Sword…

After this attack, would he win? Or lose?

      To be fair, he probably thought that the guy would just focus his attacks on him and didn’t think he would summon forth hell flames to attack everyone.

      • raixes213 says:

        haha no it said in the last or 2 chapters before this one that all the bystanders were corpses in his eyes, im pretty sure he would have killed everyone there after the fight to keep his strength a secret

      • Icura says:

        After the hell flame balls, the MC could have killed the guy. Instead, he watched the summoner walk in front of him (it literally says it right there) and used the dagger to slash his own stomach open. He could have stopped the summoning and the killing by murdering the guy after the hell flame started attacking, just before the dagger thing, at least saving the rest of the people after the initial wave. The guard leader even shouted for everyone to stop the summoner.

        But no, the MC is an asshole with a disregard for human life just to test his power level.

        • Azareal says:

          I don’t think any reasonable person including the readers would have expected him to summon forth a Demon King from the Depths of Hell.

          It sounded like the ravings of a madman at first. If the author didn’t actually pull it out of nowhere then, it would remained as the ravings as a madman or possibly even a low level demon.

        • Icura says:

          Even then, he didn’t prioritize stopping the flames that was indiscriminate killing people. If you take the summoning out of the account, the summoner was still killing people with the flames, yet the MC stood by and just watched the guy walk up to him with his dagger. It does say something about his character.

        • Azareal says:

          Would they have helped him, if the situation was reversed or would they watch from the sidelines and enjoy the show..?

          Welcome to Xiantia. Is this the first time that you’ve read one of these novels..?

          On a serious note, I find the entire situation to be incredibly silly. Finding the one thief to annoy who happened to be connected to whatever the clan was.

          A random mercenary who summons forth flames which easily mow down veteran guards and summons forth the prince of darkness..?

          If his going to stand in the sidelines then, *why* get involved in the first place? Because, it’s a woman? Give me a break. There are thousands of them in the city. Don’t tell me that his never seen them running into problems.

          It feels like the author has really really forced this “couple” to join up.

        • goo21 says:

          “Would they have helped him”
          That’s exactly what the guard captain tried to do. He tried to save people around him by killing the summoner. But he was too weak to do so. But this mc is strong enough but unfortunately doesn’t deserve to be called human or even person.

        • John Clune (@cookiemongster3) says:

          What are you talking about? He literally said “…Let me tell you, as long as there’s a human and some blood, I can summon a terrifying Devil King that can decimate all of White Stone City…hahaha…hahahahahahaha….” Then we got this The observing warriors all shuddered involuntarily. A terrifying devil king that could decimate all of White Stone City? At the very least, this would mean it had to be a demon of the Golden King Beast level, right? Clearly everyone believed what he said, no one was laughing it off.

    • legendofthesunknight says:

      The way I see it he had no obligation to help any of the people there. It isn’t like any of those people would have done the same for him, especially since we just saw him and the theif about to lose their lives and none of the bystanders even lifted a finger to help them. So why should he help them now that the situation is reversed?

      • John Clune (@cookiemongster3) says:

        Of course he doesn’t have any obligation to do anything for them, but it’s a little extreme to let everyone die when he was going to kill the guy in a minute anyway. It’s not like they wronged him in any way, they didn’t have the power to help him because of the enemies background. None of them were malicious about it, the guard tried to calm the situation down at least, our hero doesn’t even spare a thought for dozens of people burning around him. He said awhile ago something about these people all being like NPCs in a game to him, he is clearly a sociopath.

      • goo21 says:

        “It isn’t like any of those people would have done the same for him”
        Are you blind or have chicken memory? They just tried to save him by preventing the summon, but they failed because they are too weak. But MC is not weak and he could have prevented shitload of human casualties effortlessly, but no, he just waits for them to die and then acts. This mc is like cancer in that world. It is worth removing him even if it causes half the world to be destroyed.
        I’m a human supremacist and I hate those pieces of shit that don’t act like humans. He doesn’t deserve to be called human or even person.

    • Lifeissoshady says:

      Considering how they were watching and waiting for those two bandits to kill the mc and the thief they sort of deserved it. They already knew that guy was crazy should of ran when they could instead of watching the show. Plus this mc is smart he wants to test his own strength. Plus imagine if he could capture that demon that would be awesome.

      • Azareal says:

        You might actually have a point here. I don’t think any of these people are complete *clean* either. The other thing is.. Who is truly moronic enough to just stand and watch..? Aren’t they concerned that they might get caught in the cross-fire..?

        And if one of the important people were to just die then, they might get tortured into telling everything they know, as they’ll be the top suspects who were there on the scene. Or they’ll be killed to make sure that the witnesses are eliminated to avoid a blood feud.

        Honestly.. What’s with the thief picking fights against people who he can’t possibly kill to begin with..? That’s a little on the moronic side. The MC is an Innate Ranker, so he easily outranked his bounties, but the thief has a much closer margin.

        The MC should have just left the thief who he doesn’t know other than randomly running into her in the mercenary building and not get involved in what’s quite frankly.. Someone else’s problem. One that they created themselves.

    • jacobpaige says:

      Well, he was very clear about the fact that he didn’t see anyone outside of his family as people. To him, they’re all NPCs, and there are plenty of people that massacre NPCs just because they’re bored or because they want to test a new weapon or skill.

  1. ftxnexus says:

    Hm… According to what was mentioned in this chapter all the spectators got killed, engulfed by the flames. Even those who were fast got devoured by the hell flames. Tho i dont think him testing his abilites are wrong, but he doesnt knw abou the phrase “There is a time and place for it”.

    Btw the snake Empress couldnt possibly be that weak? Shouldnt that just be an assumption of his part, because he lack common sense in that world and is very inexperienced? Tho it may be true, but a LOT of people who is stronger then this beautiful Empress is quite doubtful.

    • Azareal says:

      It’s probably true. In this sort of novel, there’s always thousands of people on some higher plane who are much more powerful than you will ever be.

    • Azareal says:

      To be fair, I don’t think he knew that the guy was going to summon forth hell flames.
      While he probably figured that he could deal with whatever demon he summoned forth.

  2. Azareal says:

    His probably going to end up completely destroying it. It might attract some unwanted attention though, as people will probably catch onto him being the Innate Ranker.

  3. Azareal says:

    How did this go from testing his skill against a random mercenary to a Demon King being summoned from the Depths of Hell to destroy the city..?

  4. Azareal says:

    Am I the only one confused about how easy it is to summon forth a Demon King to destroy a city in this novel..? I wouldn’t have thought that a mercenary would be capable of it and that he was just spouting nonsense.

    If that’s the case then, wouldn’t every life and death battle on the continent have dozens of Demon Kings running around..?

    • Azareal says:

      I’d blame the author. Everything was contrived is such a way that this would happen.
      From bothering the thief all the time for whatever reason, and then convieniently showing up near the mercenaries and ending up having a duel with them.

      One of which convieniently has control over hell flames which they never had before and can summon forth demons from the depths of hell.

  5. Lednacek says:

    the MC is an A-hole. that has been determined in the first lines of this novel when he stole from a man on the ground. His character is nothing that can surprise me anymore. What surprises me is that in the World of summoning he is the only one that will fight against summons. If he did not have a summoning himself i would accept it, but he does. Am I the only one that thinks this is completely Fked up?

    Re:chapter
    I dont think that summoning anything from hell could be so easy. he will summon no king. an imp at best. And shouldnt the summoning be canceled once the summoner dies? How is it that sacrificing life of summoner could summon anything. That is just too random. There have to be some rules!!!

    • Azareal says:

      The problem with sacrificing their life is that any opponent who you face could just sacrifice themselves before you have the chance to kill them in order to summon a Demon King.

      With that sort of logic, you’d think that the continent would have been torn apart by hundreds of Demon Kings by now.

      • Redryad says:

        It wasn’t just his life it was also everyone that died by hellfire I imagine that and I doubt many people would summon something that would kill them and everyone around them. That and it seemed like he might have had a contract with demon or something. Just judging by the fact it’s one city it probably has a time limit

  6. Azareal says:

    It would be more understandable, if the guy did some sort of demonic ritual where he sacrificed many people, drew a magic circle with their blood, etc. in order to summon forth the demon king to destroy the city, but a random mercenary summoning one simply by sacrificing themselves before you can kill them..?

    Wouldn’t that mean that anyone could summon a demon king? So, every battle you go into.. You have to worry about the opponent summoning a demon king, no matter how petty or insignificant they might be..?

    • Lednacek says:

      not only did he summon a demon but also fired of countless of hellfireballs that burn and kill everything they can, except a summoners shield. really handy thing that shield, and convenient.
      huge summoning without any preparation, requirements, time, all you need is an idiot or average strength that is willing to sacrifice his life. And you have an armykiller anywhere anytime.
      Usually authors wait couple of hundred chapters before they give godly powers and extremely OP opponents to the MC.

      • Azareal says:

        I thought that this novel might have potential. I really did.
        But, unfortunatelly.. I’m really beginning to see this novel for what is truly is.
        And that is.. The author imagining himself as this omnipotent character who just goes around defeating Demon Kings as a mere child with the world kissing his feet.

        There’s a reason why alot of novels will take a long time before introducing deity level combatants. And that’s mainly because.. Deity level combatants are not.. Interesting. Anyone who has read Coiling Dragon can attest to that.

        It looks really impressive and overpowered when you look at it from the perspective of a mere mortal, but when the MC gets to that level, you just think.. Well, onto the next novel.

        That was the one arc where everything started getting really boring.
        It’s usually the level where you start wrapping up the story at.. Not where you begin the story.

  7. Azareal says:

    I find the MC to be more of an idiot than an ass, although his kinda both.
    If he wanted to test his strength then, he should have targetted an isolated Level 4 mercenary in the middle of nowhere rather than fighting infront of a load of people.

    I still don’t get why his always bothering the thief. Is this their best attempt at introducing a new character..?

    • Lednacek says:

      i thought it would be a recurring character with a funny side. sadly, author revealed everything about her right away.

  8. Nakiami says:

    Damn, hating him more and more. Should of just binded Xie Hua and killed him. Now there are casualties. How do you show off when nobody is alive? Way to go.
    But thanks, I still enjoy it, but here’s to hoping he’ll be less naive in the future — not waiting for people to use their trump cards.
    Cheers.

    • Azareal says:

      Firstly, this summon was bs to begin with. That portion should be deleted and written by a more competent author.

      Just one question. How exactly is this going to affect him..? He’ll just kill it easily and continue doing what his already doing. The plot has already convieniently cleaned up the witnesses, and the thief is unconcious. The guard captain might be taken out by a stray bullet and even if he isn’t.. People might think that his a madman when he goes on about demon kings being killed by kids.

  9. lucky says:

    all people is dead and burned no food for his flower this time T-T and if he will win or losse we will know afther 2 more chapters , many thanks all shiroyuki translations group

  10. heliocat says:

    Thank you for the chapter! This mc has some questionable morals but what else is new with chinese protagonists…. I cant wait for him to go to the tower and start using his summons more and flirting less. Heh. Go go cute mice!

  11. Kpman says:

    Yue Yang was confident that he could escape the terrifying demon if it pursued him, but there was no way his godmother and her little girl living in White Stone City would be able to.

    Lol? His first thinking is about him run to his house instead to run somewhere else which isn’t connected to him
