Chapter 124 - Ambush The Empress
Chapter 124 - Ambush The Empress
Zhou Xuanji opened his arms wide and allowed Xiao Jinghong, Beixiao Wangjian, Zhao Congjian, and Han Shenbo to push him. They tried their best, but they still could not move him an inch.
He said proudly, “Haven’t you eaten your lunch?”
When the four heard, they became anxious immediately.
They channeled their spirit energy and pushed Zhou Xuanji back a meter.
And then, Zhou Xuanji stopped.
They pushed so hard that their faces turned red, but they could not move Zhou Xuanji.
At last, they gave up and sighed.
Zhao Congjian said hesitantly, “Should we go for physical cultivation also?”
Xiao Jinghong shook his head. He was solely for the sword.
Beixiao Wangjian tried physical cultivation before, but he knew that he was not talented enough.
Han Shenbo sighed and said, “Physical cultivation is so difficult, which will surely occupy huge amounts of our time.”
The golden radiance from Zhou Xuanji’s body receded. “It seems like we need a tank.” He said with a smile.
“What is a tank?”
Han Shenbo asked curiously. At this moment, Jiang Xue and Huang Lianxin walked over.
Jiang Xue smiled, “A tank is someone with high defense and who is healthy. He is specialized to block and deflect most of the enemies’ attacks.”
“Xuanji said it before. A perfect party requires an assassin, a warrior, a tank, a shooter, a mage, and a support.”
“You should know about assassins. The assassin should be able to kill the enemy in one blow.”
“Warrior is the main damage dealer. Xiao Jinghong and Zhao Congjian can be considered as warriors. I’m like a mage and support.”
“For the shooter, actually all of you, sword cultivators, can be a shooter. It just means to attack from a range. ”
Seeing Jiang Xue taught them tirelessly like someone who knew it all, and Zhou Xuanji found it really entertaining.
He could not help but remember his previous life. Those games were no longer accessible to him, and all he could do now was work on his dull and dry cultivation.
Xiao Jinghong rubbed his chin and said with a deep voice, “Meng Tianlang is very suitable to be a tank. If he’s around, he can be nurtured.”
He still could not forget his old “lover.”
Huang Lianxin tilted her head in contemplation. “If this is so, actually, we should have searched for an archer who can shoot out sword Qi from afar with considerable speed.” She said.
Zhou Xuanji smiled, “As for a tank, we have one.”
He looked at the little black snake who was rolling on the ground. “From today onwards, each of us will beat it up fearsomely to increase the defensibility of its scale and flesh,” He said.
The little black snake heard him and immediately straightened up its serpentine body like a rubber band. “Why! I don’t buy it! I’m so small, how can I be a tank? I can’t even help you block any attacks!” He cried out loud.
Zhou Xuanji ignored it and said, “Ah Big and Small Er have the potential as well. Demons are suitable tanks. We should nurture them well.”
The group nodded.
After they chatted for a while more, they returned to their own training.
Although Zhou Xuanji’s power increased tremendously after he broke through to Golden Invincibility, it was still not enough.
He needed to work harder to defeat an enemy as formidable as Xitan Changshi.
Five months later.
Zhou Xuanji broke through to Inner Pellet Level Nine and was only one step from reaching Soul Fountain.
If word spread about him reaching Soul Fountain at 18 years old, the world would surely be aghast.
In these five months, they would meet with enemies occasionally. Xinhao Sect’s bounty was still on, but evil cultivators from Xinhao Sect did not appear even once.
Zhou Xuanji and the group sent out the person corresponding to the enemy’s power to train their battle consciousness.
Even Jiang Xue was engaged in battle.
All in all, everyone was growing more powerful.
This day, Zhao Congjian came back with some news.
“Master, Zhou Yalong returned to the court. The Empress will likely delay for a month, but the time has been confirmed. She will move out within four months at most. There will be 100 elite royal guards escorting her, the weakest among them is at Astral Infant.”
Zhao Congjian cupped his fist and said to Zhou Xuanji, who was internalizing Qi on the tree.
Zhou Xuanji nodded. “Go and rest,” he said.
Zhao Congjian left in excitement, as though he was waiting eagerly for the fight to begin.
If the ambush against the Empress were to be a success, how significant an impact would that be?
At his moment, billows of thunder clouds gathered.
A ball of demonic Qi flew over. Zhou Xuanji opened his eyes while the others were on the alert also.
Xinhao Sect, Huang Ming!
The demonic Qi stopped above the forest and condensed into the appearance of Huang Ming. He looked down at Zhou Xuanji and said, “Sword God Zhou, let’s work together to get rid of the Empress. How about that?”
Having heard this, Zhou Xuanji squinted his eyes. “You want to take your revenge on Zhou Yalong?” He asked.
Huang Ming said expressionlessly, “Zhou Yalong slaughtered my clan, so I kill his mother. It’s karma. See if he feels good about it.”
Xiao Jinghong, Zhao Congjian, and the rest gathered together and looked at him alertly.
“Of course, but the Empress must be mine to kill.”
Zhou Xuanji said calmly. If Huang Ming can distract Xitan Changshi, he would be less pressurized.
Huang Ming nodded, “This matter is directed at the Empress of Great Zhou. After we are done with her, we will leave and rest a while before we fight each other. How about that?”
He still had the mission from Xinhao Sect, so naturally, he had to deal with Zou Xuanji.
Zhou Xuanji was shocked. This guy is so principled?
He did not fully trust Huang Ming. How could he trust the words of an evil cultivator?
“Before we move, I will send my men to inform you.”
After leaving them with these words, Huang Ming left, along with the thunder clouds in the sky.
Xiao Jinghong walked underneath the tree and reminded, “Revered Teacher, we must take precautions against this.”
Han Shenbo said, “Huang Ming has the public praise. It is rare to hear anything despicable about his deeds. He acts on his words and will never break his promises.”
The others spoke their opinions too.
Zhou Xuanji, who was sitting on the tree, looked afar to the horizon and said, “When the time comes, it will be good if you are all alert.”
The Empress of Great Zhou.
Her karma was here. But was she ready?
After four and a half months, Zhou Xuanji broke through to Inner Pellet Level Ten.
A Xinhao Sect’s evil cultivator came to the boundary of the forest and shouted, “Sword God Zhou, my lord, I ask you for your assistance. The target is about to leave the custom!”
He looked a little nervous since he heard about Sword God Zhou’s mighty name. Sword God Zhou was someone who could even injure the Sword Monarch of Great Zhou.
With such power, Sword God Zhou might not have been weaker than Huang Ming.
Zhou Xuanji, Jiang Xue, Xiao Jinghong, Zhao Congjian, Han Shenbo, Beixiao Wangjian, Huang Lianxin, the little black snake, and the Dragon Eagles walked out of the forest.
“Lead the way.”
Zhou Xuanji, who was walking in at the center of the party, said calmly.
Having heard that, the evil cultivator turned around immediately.
At the same time.
Within Great Zhou’s territory, at the edge of a kingdom, a company of carriages moved on ahead.
A 100 armored royal guards of Great Zhou rode on their fearsome horses. At the forefront was the First Rank State General, Xitan Changshi.
Xitan Changshi had a tall and muscular build, and he wore golden armor. His face was determined, and two parallel scars ran across his face like centipedes.
He wore a crown that was decorated with two phoenix feathers. With the reins in his hand, he looked ahead with an impassive expression.
“General, this is a dangerous trip to Merciful Melody Cliff.”
The royal guard beside him spoke with a tinge of worry on his face.
“What are you afraid of? I’m around. And whoever dares to come, will die.”
Xitan Changshi said expressionlessly. He paused a short while before continuing, “Moreover, a powerful character is waiting for us at the end of Juemo Wasteland. With his protection, even Ta Tianchen’s father cannot do anything to us.”
