Chapter 212: Someone Who Was Once First In The World
Seeing that the Evil Lord was only injured and had not fallen, Zhou Xuanji’s heart plummeted.
Even with the Tianxia Map, he needed time to recover his spirit energy.
The Evil Lord looked down at Zhou Xuanji with a savage expression. He raised his right hand and pointed his palm towards Zhou Xuanji.
Massive, blood-red palms appeared in the sky, giving off unstoppable momentum as they descended.
A domineering bull’s roar sounded out as Chongming Demon Monarch rushed over and blocked above Zhou Xuanji.
His body blocked the countless blood-red palms, causing his qi and blood to boil. His skin split open and blood spilled out.
Jiang Xue, Xiao Jinghong, Zhao Congjian, Han Shenbo, and the others flew over, taking up protective stances around Zhou Xuanji’s sides.
Chongming Demon Monarch gritted his teeth as he forced a smile and said, “I’m not a bad tank, eh?”
Before anyone replied to him, the Evil Lord waved his hand and a powerful wind blew him away.
“Today, no one can save you. Even if gods and immortals come, you will still die!” The Evil Lord said as he viciously laughed. Apart from Daoya Old Man who was barely strong enough, everyone else was an ant in his eyes!
Daoya Old Man pressed his palms together, preparing to unleash a magical technique.
“Wu!” At that moment, a roar sounded out, causing the heavens and earth to seem to darken.
Hearing this, the Evil Lord’s expression fell and immediately shouted out, “Retreat!”
After saying this, he left first, turning into a blood-red cloud and disappearing over the horizon. The other demonic cultivators did not understand what was happening, but they also followed suit and ran away in fear.
Everyone felt quite stunned, looking confused.
Han Shenbo gulped as he asked, “Was that a slap in the face?”
Lying on his sword, Zhou Xuanji turned his head and looked over. The direction that the roar sounded out from was covered with thunderclouds.
“Jiang Wudi,” Daoya Old Man muttered. Only then did the others come back to their senses and realize it was him.
Jiang Xue flew to Zhou Xuanji’s side and picked him up before landing on the ground.
Xiao Jinghong and Zhao Congjian went to take a look at Chongming Demon Monarch’s injuries.
The thunderclouds in the distance disappeared, and Jiang Wudi appeared behind everyone. He smiled as he spoke, “Brother Zhou, why are you in such a wretched state?”
Jiang Xue, Huang Lianxin, Beixiao Wangjian, Han Shenbo, and Daoya Old Man looked back at him, their gazes wary.
Even though the Evil Lord had only retreated because of Jiang Wudi, they were not familiar with Jiang Wudi and did not know what his intentions were.
“Thank you for your help,” Zhou Xuanji opened his eyes as he sat on the ground, recovering from his injuries.
This place was far away from Great Zhou, so why was Jiang Wudi here?
Could it be that he had been following them?
Jiang Wudi could tell what they were wondering and smiled as he said, “I was just helping out. Even if I hadn’t helped, someone else would.”
After saying this, he looked in another direction and asked, “Isn’t that right, Sect Lord Xian?”
Sect Lord Xian!
Everyone was very startled and instinctively looked over, but there was no trace of Xian Xianghua within the unsteady-looking forest.
Zhou Xuanji gloomily sighed.
Why are you always following me? Is it because I’m handsome?
“Since you knew I was here, why did you jump out and force them to owe you a favor?” Xian Xianghua’s cold voice sounded out.
Following this, a wave of demonic qi descended from the sky, landing behind everyone.
After the demonic qi dissipated, Xian Xianghua, Zong Kuiming, and Jiang Han appeared.
Jiang Han’s gaze fell on Jiang Xue and Huang Lianxin’s bodies before locking on to Jiang Xue.
She could sense the bloodline connection between them.
Feeling Jiang Han’s gaze, Jiang Xue immediately realized and her expression appeared rather uncomfortable. She looked away slightly, not wanting to pay attention to her.
Zong Kuiming chuckled as he said to Zhou Xuanji, “Vice Sect Lord, you’re so powerful; you can even injure the Evil Lord.”
The Evil Lord was even stronger than Lin Guanyu. He had been in the Northern Wilderness’ Top 100 for a long time, and was an old monster.
Zhou Xuanji ignored him and looked at Xian Xianghua and asked, “Just how long are you going to follow me for? I already said that I don’t want to join the Tanhua Sect.”
Xian Xianghua rolled her eyes and pouted as she said, “I just wanted to protect you on your journey, and yet you’re treating me like this? If it wasn’t for me, you might have already died. Even if you didn’t die at the Evil Lord’s hands, you might have died at Jiang Wudi’s hands.”
Hearing this, Jiang Wudi glared at her and said in a low voice, “Nonsense, with how much I appreciate Brother Zhou, how could I harm him?”
Xiao Jinghong, Zhao Congjian, and the others all looked at Jiang Wudi warily.
Compared to Jiang Wudi, naturally, they trusted Xian Xianghua more.
Even though Xian Xianghua had been plotting against Zhou Xuanji this whole time and wanted to rope him into the Tanhua Sect, she had never harmed him. In fact, she had even risked her life to save him. On the other hand, Jiang Wudi was a complete stranger to them.
Xian Xianghua harrumphed coldly as she said, “Scram, don’t think that I don’t know what you’re up to. The Sea-Freezing Stone you’ve been looking for is already in my hands.”
Hearing this, Jiang Wudi frowned and he looked at Jiang Han, a trace of displeasure in his eyes.
Meeting his gaze, Jiang Han looked somewhat afraid and hurriedly lowered her head.
“I don’t want to repeat myself. Jiang Wudi, you should understand how powerful I am. If it wasn’t for the fact that I was injured by Yang Di back then, how could you have ranked third?
“If you’re unwilling to leave, today I’ll help you to understand how powerful the rank number one in the world is,” Xian Xianghua said as she walked towards Jiang Wudi, a condescending look in her eyes.
Back then, during the World Millennium Duel, Jiang Wudi did not even fight with Yang Di before he surrendered.
Hearing this, Jiang Wudi’s expression darkened.
Seeing Xian Xianghua walk over, he sighed and cupped his fist to Zhou Xuanji and said, “Brother Zhou, come and visit the Jiang Clan when you have time.”
After saying this, he waved his sleeves and left, coldly harrumphing and pretending to be angry.
Chongming Demon Monarch, who was covered in blood, could not help but laugh out loud.
Xiao Jinghong, Jiang Xue, Huang Lianxin, Zhao Congjian, and the others could not help but laugh as well.
Daoya Old Man sighed in amazement, “Is this the power of the number one in the world? So domineering. Even if she was someone who was once first in the world in the past, she’s still awe-inspiring.”
Hearing this, Xian Xianghua glared at him and cursed, “Do you want to die, you brat?”
Daoya Old Man was greatly frightened and hurriedly closed his mouth.
Zhou Xuanji looked at Xian Xianghua with a complicated gaze; this old demonic woman was indeed quite domineering.
Just how strong had she been at her peak?
She could even scare off the current number three.
“Vice Sect Lord, even though our sect has declined, we still have countless sect members scattered across the world. When the Sect Lord revives the Diablo, the Tanhua Sect will definitely sweep across the Northern Wilderness. When that time comes, you’ll be below one person and above countless people!” Zong Kuiming came before Zhou Xuanji and rubbed his hands together as he laughed excitedly.
This boy’s talent was simply too powerful!
Perhaps even the Ancient Diablo could not compare to him.
Xian Xianghua looked at Zhou Xuanji and said, “I can pass on our sect’s legendary energy technique to you and help you look for the peerless energy technique that has recently emerged. With those two legendary energy techniques, you will be able to dominate the world. What happened will never happen again, and in the future, no matter how many Evil Lords there are, they won’t be able to stand up to a single sword strike from you.”
Zong Kuiming looked incredibly surprised; he did not expect the Sect Lord to make a promise like this.
Did she have any other intentions?
He looked at Zhou Xuanji closely then looked at Xian Xianghua.
The more he looked, the more he felt that something was off.
Hearing this, Jiang Xue tightly gripped her fists and lightly bit her lip, but did not say anything.
Zhou Xuanji said seriously, “You want me to lead the Tanhua Sect to become stronger? Apologies, even though I’m not a righteous cultivator, I don’t like evil sects either. Moreover, I’m completely focused on the sword.”
