Chapter 1185: Demons and Devils Joining Forces
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
At the 39th year mark of the opening of the sacred academy, within the four academies, there was a rumor saying that some supreme genius had faintly come into contact with the level of transforming one’s body into laws. This indicated that there were already people on the verge of reaching the immortal king level. At the very least, that person could already manage to see the gate leading to immortal king realm before him.
This news caused many to be stunned in their hearts. Although the Heavenly Dao Sacred Academy was boundlessly mystical, and the improvements of them all were very huge. It should be only logical that it was more difficult for people at higher levels to increase their cultivation base.
With regards to immortal-foundation reaching immortal-king, it was like a heavenly moat that obstructed countless geniuses. In the countless number of cities existing in the immortal realms, immortal-foundation experts were everywhere, and were virtually limitless in number. Yet there are only a certain number of immortal kings. Only those who had true potential and destiny would be able to enter the ranks of it.
For immortal kings, they can be considered true experts in the immortal realms and were able to claim hegemony over a small city or even govern an entire prefecture, establishing their own power. Only for those main cities where peak powers resided would one be able to see a large number of immortal kings.
If one wanted to break through to the immortal king realm from immortal-foundation, one needed the baptism of countless experience and time. And usually, these factors weren’t enough.
Hence, now that there was news regarding someone in the sacred academy coming in contact with that gate that reached the immortal king realm, it naturally caused everyone to feel waves of shock in their hearts.
At the 40th year mark, the quota was finally reached. The sacred academy no longer accepted any enrollment and Mo Qingcheng being able to enter within the last two years, was actually putting her dangerously close to not being able to enter due to the quota. If she was later by two years, she would be sent back out from the immortal sea to the external world.
But after she entered, she also experienced the baptism of several secret realms. With Qing`er helping her, Mo Qingcheng’s improvements could be considered very fast. Although she has yet to breakthrough to the next level, her understanding towards immortal-foundation deepened as her cultivation foundation solidified.
It was just that the intense longing of the hearts of these two, were unable to be quenched. That figure who entered the second-level of the Sky Connecting Realm through the immortal rock has yet to return.
At the 40th year mark, the geniuses in the academy grew stronger and stronger. It was rumored that quite a few people have already came into contact with the gate leading to the immortal king realm and managed to already see its path.
Right now in the vast academy, there was only a scarce few who were still at the lower three levels of immortal-foundation. It was the easiest to break through if one had a lower cultivation base. And after 40 years, other than those geniuses who entered later or those with weaker potentials, the vast majority have improved a lot, upgrading their cultivation bases.
Nanfeng Yunxi and the other holy maidens were naturally the same as well, enjoying a huge improvement to their strength. At this moment, several beautiful maidens of the Southern Phoenix Clan walked together. Purgatory and Little Rascal was here as well. Purgatory was formed from the spirit of a vermillion bird and had somewhat similar bloodlines as the holy maidens from the Southern Phoenix Clan. All of them treated her like a little sister and were pleased to have her company. As for Little Rascal, both Qing`er and Mo Qingcheng cruelly abandoned him, hence he could only follow after Purgatory and the Southern Phoenix Clan.
“Beauty Yunxi, do you know why this baobao is always following after you?” This group of people roamed the various secret realms of the sacred academy while Little Rascal crouched on Nanfeng Yunxi’s shoulder as he spoke.
“No idea?” Nanfeng Yunxi shook her head.
“Because I feel that you are very lonely. The feeling of being secretly in love is simply too unbearable. This baobao understands that…” Little Rascal heaved a long sigh as he spoke, his eyes seemed to be filled with a profound sadness as he stared into space.
“Pa!” The sound of a slap rang out as Little Rascal was knocked directly to the ground.
However, Little Rascal has very thick-skin. He transformed into a white blur of shadows and instantly leapt into the arms of Nanfeng Shengge while he grumbled in an unhappy voice. “Honest demons are always getting bullied.”
“You best just keep quiet.” The beautiful Nanfeng Shengge also glared at Little Rascal. But there was no denying that with his clown-like personality, there was much more joy in their group. Although the paws of this little puppy were dishonest at time, constantly trying to take advantage of them, he was simply too adorable in terms of looks. In fact, all the beautiful maidens here were already taken advantage of by Little Rascal.
At this moment, all the maidens here had no idea that on a faraway ancient peak, there were two figures standing there. One of the figures was clad totally in black and exuding an extremely dangerous aura. His eyes gleamed with a cold sharpness, and there was no doubt that he was an exceptionally terrifying individual.
For the other expert, it was actually none other than a white tiger king, White-eye!
“The experts of your White Tiger Race are truly worthless, didn’t you all keep proclaiming that you would capture the holy maidens of the Southern Phoenix Clan to breed little tigers but aren’t they still fine out there? In fact I even heard that some of the white tigers were killed and roasted for meat. Not only that, even you yourself, the white tiger king White-eye, was defeated and roasted in public by Qin Wentian and the holy maidens. If this was in the external world, most probably you would have already ended up as food in their bellies.”
A mocking voice rang out from the black-colored clad figure, filled with the intent to humiliate. White-eye could only roar in anger.
“It’s good to be angry, this means that the White Tiger Race still knows what shame is. There’s no hiding that incident from people of the sacred academy and sooner or later, the entire immortal realms would know of this, causing the reputation of your race to turn smelly. I’m merely stating facts, you best not direct your anger at me.”
That person continued speaking as White-eye expression turned grimmer and grimmer. He knew of course that the words of this figure were facts. If the White Tiger Race couldn’t cleanse this humiliation, they would be a joke forever. In the future when this matter circulated around the immortal realms, how would the White Tiger Race still have any face left?
“What do you want to do?” White-eye coldly spoke, his tone filled with maliciousness.
He knew which group this man represented. There were four academies, and one of the academies were suited for all demonic beasts, which was precisely the academy the white tigers were originally at. As for this other group, they came from another academy filled with devil cultivators. This man clad in black was precisely a devil-cultivator from the Myriad Devil Islands.
Countless years ago, immortals, demons and devils were well-distributed across the vast immortal realms. But eventually because of the differences in their philosophies, conflicts soon erupted. And as time passed, this layer of the immortal realms which was known as Azure Mystic, began to be divided up. Right now, the human cultivators occupied the majority of the land. Devil cultivators relocated to the similarly boundlessly vast Devil Myriad Islands while the demonic beasts all moved to the Western Regions or the Ten Thousand Desolate Mountain Range, only communicating with each other if needed.
However, devil cultivators were still devil cultivators. They shared many similarities with demonic beasts, their innate dispositions were violent and warlike, all of them incredibly dangerous. It was said that under the Devil Sovereign who ruled over the Myriad Devil Islands, cruelty was the path to the strong. The weak died while the strong survive.
This man in black seemed extremely young but there was a coldness beyond his years reflected in his eyes. He then spoke, “After being at the receiving end of such a humiliation, don’t you all want to give the Southern Phoenix Clan an unforgettable punishment? It’s said that demons are all lascivious by nature. I really want to take a look for myself. I want you all to infuriate them so bad that they issue a life-and-death challenge. At that time, we will naturally act to help your White Tiger Race cleanse the previous humiliation.”
“Are you truly so kind?” White-eye coldly laughed. “What do you want exactly?”
Devil cultivators from the Myriad Devil Islands would definitely never do something which gave no benefits. Was it possible that this man wanted to help them for free?
“That little puppy is mine, nobody can touch him.” That man in black growled. His palm stretched out as a terrifying blood-colored vortex capable of devouring everything manifested.
“You wish to devour that little puppy? You should know that the rules of the sacred academy prevents death and crippling others. How do you know the sacred academy would approve the life-and-death battle request?” White-eye asked.
“After cultivating for so long in the sacred academy, have you guys never requested for a life-and-death battle? Don’t worry, all of us devil-cultivators are war-like, we have already made numerous requests for life-and-death battles in the academy we were from. When a weaker power that has been harshly humiliated made the request, it will always be granted. You all just need to concentrate on igniting the anger of the Southern Phoenix Clan.”
“Let’s hope that you are right.” Another white tiger king who was in the area spoke. After that, he let out a roar and departed the area as the other white tigers followed him.
“Since the opening of the sacred academy is a herald of an age where ancient emperors would once again be born…in that case, that ancient emperor in the future will definitely be me.” The young man from the Myriad Devil Islands spoke, his eyes gleaming with an incomparable sharpness.
The maidens of the Southern Phoenix Clan naturally had no idea that someone was scheming in the shadows against them. That year after Qin Wentian dominated everyone in the Sky Connecting Realm, all of the experts from the major powers agreed to a cease fire, not bothering each other and choosing to focus on their cultivation. The maidens of the Southern Phoenix Clan also enjoyed peace for many years, cultivating quietly and having huge improvements. Hence, their wariness also gradually diminished.
Slowly walking around the academy, they chatted joyfully, unaware of the impending disaster.
“Careful!” At this moment, a powerful holy maiden felt that something was wrong. After that, her countenance changed as she sent her immortal sense ahead.
“The white tigers are mounting an ambush. Let’s fight!” She coldly roared. A moment later, terrifying blasts of baleful energy blasted over, causing the entire space to tremble. After that, they only saw numerous white tigers reverting to their true forms as all of them rushed over.
“Have these vile beasts all gone mad?” The beautiful maidens of the Southern Phoenix Clan furrowed their brows. Their own powerful auras gushed forth as shadows of phoenix covered their body, birthing phoenix wings, exuding a holy sense of beauty.
“ROAR ROAR ROAR!” The White Tiger Race lunged over, the unholy roars rending apart the earth, containing an absolute destructive might. Numerous phantoms of gigantic white tigers were generated, but the holy maidens all combined their powers and unleashed a finger attack, causing balls of phoenix flames to destroy the phantoms.
“HOWL~” An extremely powerful ninth-level white tiger lunged over, widening its maw wanting to devour everyone here.
“Let me deal with that beast.” A powerful holy maiden soared up into the air as the phantom of a phoenix could be seen around her, growing larger and larger to the point where it blotted out the sun. She snorted as arrows of flames shot into the clouds, right into the maw of the white tiger.
From all directions, a premeditated plot unfolded as all the white tigers in the academy gathered and rushed out.
Throughout these few years, in order to avoid conflict, the holy maidens of the Southern Phoenix Clan had chosen to travel together in a group. Their team was very powerful but despite so, at this moment they could feel an extremely stifling pressure boring down on them. These white tigers have gone mad, it seemed like they were prepared to lose their lives to take down the holy maidens.
“Careful!” At this moment, a holy maiden shouted. After that, they only saw White-eye tossing out one of his comrades as a distraction while he sprinted towards a low-level holy maiden with a speed as quick as lightning.
He chose to target a sixth-level maiden. His eyes gleamed with a fearsome light as his paws grabbed over. That particular maiden was currently in combat with another white tiger, how could she withstand this surprise attack? She was easily caught by White-eye and a moment later, White-eye instantly sped away into the horizons!
