The Charm of Soul Pets - Chapters Chapter 1198: Initial Battle, Half Devil Bai Yu!
New Moon Ground initially couldn’t enter Li Xu’s eyes. However, adventurers constantly coming to report to him kept saying New Moon Ground had many secrets that were hidden. Three palaces had sacred realms, immortal city, sealed tower, and other independent spaces that were all very rare outside of here.
There were actually very few independent spaces outside, yet a small third rank realm had over ten of them. This meant that this territory wasn’t as simple as they first thought.
So, after understanding the situation, Li Xu was even more eager to take over this land. He was already regretting not sending people over sooner, wasting a huge resource here.
However, it didn’t matter. After the battle, these people would still become slaves. Then, New Moon Ground would permanently become cloud realm’s resource source. If these independent spaces had more room for excavation, cloud realm may even enter eighth rank realm soon.
Once they reached eighth rank realm, cloud realm would finally have a real say in the entire territory.
Li Xu already had the future development planned. Because of this, he specially old the army’s power to station themselves in western region. This way, the moment this battle finished, they could become the ruler and start his master plan!
It wasn’t that he underestimated Chu Mu’s strength, but their origins were simply too different. How would the great Li Family ever need to be afraid of people from a third rank realm? It was like a great city master being afraid of a random mountain village monk.
Time passed slowly. When the independence battle day arrived, the red sun slowly lifted into the sky amongst clouds as Li Xu brought his experts to the top of heavenly mountain.
Heavenly mountain’s mountains lifted up like towering screens, solemnly standing in this snow white world.
The first rays of sunlight fell down, dying the white carpet a brilliant gold. The dazzling scene caused everyone to be shocked.
Climbing to the peak, the coldness was already going deep into their souls. Even the spirit emperor ranks were shivering.
The location of the battle was set early on by Divine Sect members. North of cloud gate was a large group of rolling white mountains. Spectators could all watch on the main peak, while the participants could fight in the endless mountains.
In the icy mountain, a green robed main judge Lu Yuqin was already standing silently and alone at the top of the peak. She was slim but attractive- her coldness very similar to the nearby ice mountains.
Maybe, in many experts’ hearts, this icy woman was far more piercingly cold than all the heavenly mountains combined.
Silently staring at the icy world for a while. Lu Yuqin seemed zoned out. When she turned back around, she noticed that New Moon Ground and Li Xu’s participants were all twenty meters behind her. No one dared to come up and disturb her thinking.
Maintaining this distance with others was something Lu Yuqin was already used to. Her gaze fell on New Moon Ground’s people.
The first that caught Lu Yuqin’s attention was Bai Yu in a black coat.
Lu Yuqin was very confused. This man seemed very young, but his manners and expression were all overly mature, if not upright old.
Bai Yu had just finished a difficult training session, so he hadn’t completely suppressed the devil flames within him. He oozed evil influences still.
“You’re the half human type devil man?” Lu Yuqin felt the burning flames within Bai Yu and asked.
Half human type was only a saying from Divine Sect. There were countless weird things in the world. The so called other type was only the term referring to special creatures created between a human and soul pet soul. These other type organisms were mentioned in Divine Sect books but weren’t truly common.
Bai Yu nodded. There was no in point denying it. He left a deep impression on everyone in Devil Soul Mountains and Wen City. Lu Yiqin could probably guess it was him regardless.
Lu Yuqin nodded and didn’t ask anymore, having her gaze fall on Liu Binglan.
Her gaze fell on Liu Binglan for a long time. Liu Binglan was wearing a long white robe. The elegant fur on the robe adorned her soft figure well. Mature, at ease, elegant- her cold yet beautiful face instantly attracted many peoples’ gazes, including Lu Yuqin.
Lu Yuqin stared at Liu Binglan for two reasons. The first was because she felt a familiar character from this woman. The aura was similar to her, a woman that was devoid of desire and gained an atmosphere that came with being in a position of authority.
Of course, Lu Yuqin could tell that she wasn’t completely devoid of desires. At least, from what she could tell, she was already a mother.
The second reason was because of this woman’s eyes.
Her eyes were glinting purple. All humans in New Moon Ground had black pupils. This meant they were normal human subspecies. Using a soul pet’s species rank, it meant they were warrior rank humans.
What caused Lu Yuqin to be confused was the New Moon Ground three palace’s female supreme was a human royal species with her pupils filled with purple glow, meaning her bloodline was the purest purple pupil royal family.
Lu Yuqin didn’t say anything but watched her for a while.
Suddenly, she noticed the ring on Liu BInglan’s ring finger. That ring seemed familliar to Lu Yuqin.
“Did someone give that ring to you?” Lu Yuqin asked.
Liu Binglan looked at the ring she wore and was wondering why Lu Yuqin asked this out of nowhere.
This ring wasn’t anything special. It was just something that Chu Tianmang gave her when they were together early on. It was a special jade stone that allowed her to sense his location.
This jade stone was something Chu Mu and Ye Qingzi also had. Liu Binglan saw it before. However, since some time, her jade stone stopped working. No matter how much spirit remembrance she put into it, she could no longer find Chu Tianmang’s presence.
Liu Binglan wore it not because she missed the man so much. She wore it simply to tell some people to step aside because it signified that she was married.
Liu Binglan didn’t reply, but Liu Binglan was smart enough to realize that Lu Yuqin would only ask that because she had met Chu Tianmang before, since he had a similar ring.
Lu Yuqin saw that she didn’t want to respond and didn’t follow up. Instead, she glanced at everyone else and said, “Chu Mu isn’t here?”
“He’s on the way.” Liu BInglan said.
Liu Binglan told Ye Qingzi to wait in Wanxiang City and come with Chu Mu. Ye Qingzi could sense Chu Mu’s position, so Liu Binglan knew that Chu Mu was already on his way.
“The time has been set. If he doesn’t appear, it counts as an automatic failure. If you two are sub realm masters, you should take the challenge from the cloud realm realm masters first.” Lu Yuqin said.
“Who’s the first to fight?” Lu Yuqin asked.
Liu Binglan and Bai Yu glanced at each other and Bai Yu spoke first, “Let me go first.”
Liu Binglan nodded.
At this moment, Prince Chao, Ye Wansheng, Teng Lang, and Shen Mo all spoke, “Bai Yu, it’s all up to you.”
Bai Yu remained cool. He stepped through space, and towards the endless mountains that were his battlefield.
Spectral Jin Rou stood behind Mu Qingyi watching her father step forth, not feeling great.
This independence battle originally could have been delayed a few years until everyone got stronger. However, because of her, everyone had to deal with it so hastily.
Now, her father Bai Yu was going to battle, facing the experts from Cloud Realm that were far stronger and larger than Wanxiang City. Seeing him go forth without any hesitation, it seemed as if anything related to her would cause him to step forth without any complaint……
As she watched, an aching arose in her heart. In the past twenty years, Jinrou never felt what it was like to have a father, yet in these years asleep and as a ghost, she understood.
Bai Yu didn’t like speaking much, but a wildness emanated from his bones.
He didn’t immediately become a half devil. He floated lonesomely on the icy mountains, giving off an unmatched sense of power.
“That’s the devil man??”
“Yeah, I heard that during the struggle for devil souls in Guangtong Bewildering World, a great many dominator ranks attacked him all at once yet over half were killed by him!”
“Why does he seem no different than us normal people?”
Cloud realm and the other realms all started discussing when they saw bai Yu go up.
Half devils were very rare in humans. Many of them came just for the power of the half devil.
On New Moon Ground’s side, almost everyone who came to spectate knew Bai Yu, many of which have seen him in person.
This nightmare emperor that was frozen for nearly twenty years had brought two crises to New Moon Ground.
The changes in New Moon Ground’s structure also never seemed to be separate from this man. Two half devil incidents both marked a change in era.
Now, this half devil Bai Yu that once caused the world to fear was no longer the person everyone blanched at the mention of. Instead, he was slowly becoming the second most respected expert of New Moon Ground.
