I Have Countless Legendary Swords!
Chapter 218 - Returning To The Peak
Chapter 218 - Returning To The Peak
“Who are you, to dare to attack me?” The Diablo asked coldly. Despite being hit with a sneak attack, he was not infuriated.
Zhou Xuanji stepped out, surrounded by legendary swords. He looked at the Diablo and said, “You can call me the Evil Lord, or Ta Tianchen. I’m going to kill you and restore peace in the world!”
Xian Xianghua rolled her eyes; this boy was quite savage!
“Evil Lord? Ta Tianchen? Very well, I’ll kill you first and tell this world that I’ve returned!” The Diablo said coldly. His right shoulder shook and the Sky Extinguishing Sword was forced out from his chest, flying back into Zhou Xuanji’s hands.
The Diablo ignored the wound in his chest and slowly flew towards Zhou Xuanji.
“Little baby, do you know who I am? Back then I swept across the world and was completely invincible. Have you ever seen my might?” The Diablo loudly laughed as he sped towards Zhou Xuanji incredibly quickly.
Zhou Xuanji gripped the Sky Extinguishing Sword and his aura increased dramatically. He used the Eight-step Sword Lunge to dodge the Diablo’s attack.
The Diablo slammed into the ground, causing the ground to cave in and rocks to fly everywhere.
Zhou Xuanji appeared behind him and directly used the Sky Dominating Divine Sword. The sword qi slammed into the Diablo’s back, instantly inundating him.
Outside, the massive bronze doors trembled violently, and the Three Demon Chiefs looked at each other, feeling incredibly anxious.
The Fury Wave Demon Chief gritted his teeth and asked, “It seems that the Diablo has indeed gone berserk; should we really not go in?”
The massive bronze doors contained restrictive barriers, making it so that they could not see or sense what was happening inside; they could only feel the tremors.
“What would we go in for? Did you forget what the Sect Lord said? This door is to prevent Diablo from harming the sect’s disciples. If we open it and go in, won’t we be creating a disaster?” Zong Kuiming said as he frowned, and the Blood Wing Demon Chief nodded.
With how powerful Xian Xianghua was, if she could not deal with the Diablo, naturally they had no chance.
As such, they could only wait patiently.
At the same time, Zhou Xuanji and the Diablo were in a heated fight.
The Diablo had just revived, so naturally, his strength was not as great as when he was at his peak. Despite this, Zhou Xuanji and his Sky Extinguishing Sword were still unable to obtain the advantage.
The two of them continuously moved about the Ancestral Palace.
Rocks continuously fell, and the Diablo’s wild laugher did not stop.
Zhou Xuanji inwardly cursed; why was Xian Xianghua still not acting?
“Hua’Er, this boy’s strength is decent; how did you bring him over?” The Diablo laughed and asked as he fought, sounding quite amazed.
Xian Xianghua pretended to sound terrified and said, “I didn’t know that he was so powerful. He normally didn’t show his strength; who would have thought he’s from the Haotian Sect!”
The Diablo’s aura suddenly became stronger, startling Zhou Xuanji and causing his heart rate to increase.
“So, it’s that group of insects! No wonder why they want to kill me!” The Diablo said coldly. He suddenly became even faster, and his right knee slammed into Zhou Xuanji’s abdomen.
If it wasn’t for the fact that Zhou Xuanji’s body was quite powerful, he might have fainted immediately.
He immediately turned into a silver sword and dove into the group of other swords, and all of them surrounded the Diablo and attacked him.
Ten-thousand Sword Dragon Incantation!
Countless dragon-shaped sword qi surrounded the Diablo and attacked, but the Diablo calmly defended against each of them.
The Diablo slammed out with both palms, blasting back the swords around him.
He laughed loudly, “Boy, you seem to have many abili-”
A white hand landed on his back, causing him to freeze.
It was Xian Xianghua!
The Diablo instinctively looked back, and saw Xian Xianghua’s cold eyes.
“Hua’Er, you…” He said, his voice filled with confusion and disbelief.
He could sense his spirit energy being absorbed. Even his soul was trembling.
This was the legendary technique that he had personally taught Xian Xianghua!
Xian Xianghua was wearing a veil, but her eyes were completely emotionless as if she was looking at a dead person.
“Father, ever since you died, I’ve been leading the Tanhua Sect to rise up. In fact, the Tanhua Sect even ruled over the Northern Wilderness for a while. I’m stronger than you, and I was once number one in the world. However, you were suppressed by the Hegemon Sword Emperor your entire life!
“He became one of the Nine Emperors in the Way of the Sword and has been recorded in history forever, while not many people even remember you.” Xian Xianghua spoke slowly and clearly as the killing intent in her eyes became denser and denser.
The Diablo was furious, and he gritted his teeth as he said, “I am your father! Are you going to kill your own father?”
In his eyes, children could not defy him.
All of his children who had defied him had already died!
“You caused the death of my mother and forced us, siblings, to fight and kill each other. During those years, every month you forced me to kill my own flesh and blood. Since that’s the case, why can’t I kill you?” Xian Xianghua said coldly as her right hand suddenly pierced through the Diablo’s back.
“Not only do I want you to die, but I want you to die a painful death!
“Back then when you were severely injured by the Hegemon Sword Emperor, you felt that the situation was hopeless, so you destroyed your life force to protect your soul, in an effort to reincarnate. It’s a pity that I stopped you.”
“I’ve already learned all of your abilities from your soul’s memories. Father, you should be satisfied now. After you die, your legacy will not be lost, but it will have nothing to do with you from now on!”
Every one of Xian Xianghua’s sentences were like sharp knives stabbing into the Diablo’s heart.
Zhou Xuanji landed in the distance and sighed in amazement, “So ruthless!”
However, he sympathized with her.
Xian Xianghua was so vicious because she had endured pain that ordinary people could not have even imagined.
If he was in her position, would he have been able to endure it?
He was not sure.
However, he could not help but admire her character and feel her pain.
Despite experiencing endless suffering and living for over 10,000 years, she had developed feelings for him.
He suddenly felt that these feelings were incredibly intense.
The Diablo fell silent and did not say anything, and the Ancestral Palace became quiet.
Xian Xianghua’s aura became more and more terrifying, while the Diablo weakened.
After a long while, the Diablo’s legs weakened and he knelt to the ground weakly.
“Hua’Er, Father has let you down,” He muttered softly as if he was in a trance.
Xian Xianghua narrowed her eyes, but did not stop.
She was no longer the weak girl she was before; she was not any less shrewd than the Ancient Diablo.
The time it took for an incense stick to burn passed.
Xian Xianghua withdrew her hand and the Diablo’s corpse fell to the ground. There were no traces of life within his limp body.
She sat down cross-legged and started to cultivate.
Zhou Xuanji noticed that there was a visible, baleful aura between her brows, and he asked softly, “Are you alright?”
He did not want Xian Xianghua to be possessed by the Diablo.
Xian Xianghua did not reply, causing him to frown.
A while later, Zhou Xuanji took out the Truth Sword and cautiously walked in front of her.
He lightly poked Xian Xianghua’s shoulder, the tip of the sword barely cutting her flesh, causing her to frown slightly.
“Who are you?” He asked, not knowing if the Truth Sword would be effective against the Diablo.
Zhou Xuanji silently withdrew the Truth Sword, his mouth twitching.
Was a Gold grade sword really that weak?
It wasn’t effective at all!
Xian Xianghua opened her eyes and said bitterly, “You injured me with a sword; you’re so savage.”
Zhou Xuanji was speechless, not knowing what to say.
“My cultivation has completely recovered, and has even surpassed my peak!
“Now, I’m going to reclaim my place as first in the world. All those fellows who dare to come to the Tanhua Sect to make trouble can all go die!”
Xian Xianghua narrowed her eyes, an arrogant look within them as her tone became incredibly mad.
The insufferably arrogant, number one demonic cultivator was back!
