Chapter 220 - Heroes Gathered, Enemies Coming
“So, he’s the legendary Sword God Zhou. He looks like a prodigy indeed, just as I expected.”
“Astral Projection Level Four. He’s only twenty-two years old!”
“He should be 23 now? The younger generation is really surpassing the older generation.”
“He’s our Vice Sect Lord now. He even killed the Beiba Blademaster.”
“I heard that our Sect Lord will marry him!”
The demonic cultivators discussed amongst themselves, and everyone was looking at Zhou Xuanji with excitement and curiosity.
The female demonic cultivator tried to hold back her excitement and said, “Vice Sect Lord, follow me.”
Zhou Xuanji nodded. He could sense the demonic cultivators looking at him, which made him mumble something to himself.
At this moment, would there be an arrogant genius in the evil sect that would jump out to provoke him?
And only after a round of face-slapping the genius and shocking everyone could he indeed be recognized as the Vice Sect Lord?
When did I decide to be the Vice Sect Lord of Tanhua Sect?
I’m the man who is going to create my own sect!
Zhou Xuanji shook his head while smiling and followed the female demonic cultivator.
Along the way, the female demonic cultivator appeared exhilarated. She kept on asking about Zhou Xuanji’s past battles.
“Vice Sect Lord, did you really start training the sword at six years old?”
“How did you feel when our Sect Lord sought after you?”
“Back then, when you faced Lin Guanyu, were you confident that you would win?”
“Now, you are ranked on two rankings. Unparalleled Way of the Sword in the Northern Wilderness, comparable to the Ancient Sword Emperors. You are just awesome!”
Zhou Xuanji could only maintain his smile. He felt that this woman could talk to him about this for the entire day.
The Tanhua Sect’s headquarters was massive. It felt like a subterranean city.
A long while later, Zhou Xuanji finally came to the residence where Jiang Xue, Xiao Jinghong, and the others were staying.
Eight demonic cultivators were guarding the gate. When they saw Zhou Xuanji, they immediately knelt down with formalities.
“Vice Sect Lord!”
Zong Kuiming had shown them Zhou Xuanji’s portrait for them to remember his face.
The corner of Zhou Xuanji’s mouth twitched before he stepped into the residence.
A long stretch of the wooden corridor was before him. He walked to the end of it and passed a curved pavement before he reached the courtyard.
The fragrance of blossoms and birds chirping filled the place. Thick vegetation surrounded the spacious ground.
Xiao Jinghong, Zhao Congjian, Huang Lianxin, and Beixiao Wangjian were practicing their sword techniques.
Ah Big and Small Er were resting at one corner like two small hills.
Chongming Demon Monarch was tempering the bodies of red Qilin and the little black snake. With one of them in each of his hands, he whipped them around and smashed them into the ground.
Jiang Xue was internalizing Qi in the stone pavilion, while Han Shenbo and Daoya Old Man were nowhere to be seen.
Sensing his aura, everyone turned to look at him.
Everyone cried out in surprise, and Jiang Xue immediately dashed to Zhou Xuanji.
“Are you guys doing well?” Zhou Xuanji asked them, smiling.
As he spoke, he opened his arms and hugged Jiang Xue.
As the two hugged, everyone laughed heartily.
“I miss you so much.”
Jiang Xue uttered softly as she wrapped her arms tightly around Zhou Xuanji. She was so afraid to be separated from Zhou Xuanji again.
“I miss you too,” he said gently as he stroked her hair.
“Aiya, stop torturing this snake, please?”
The little black snake’s wet-blanket voice came again. The pathetic-looking snake was still in the bull demon’s hand and he had injuries all over his body.
Zhou Xuanji cast a glance at him, which made him shudder and shut his mouth immediately.
After that, everyone entered the stone pavilion, and Zhou Xuanji inquired about how they were doing. They told him everything.
During this period, they were quite comfortable staying here. Xian Xianghua did not restrict their freedom, and they were free to tour around the headquarter. No demonic cultivator dared to ill-treat them.
“Xian Xianghua’s recovered her cultivation and became even more powerful. But the different forces will come to attack Tanhua Sect, which will be our time to escape.”
Zhou Xuanji instructed everyone as he glanced at Jiang Xue. He said that primarily for her.
However, Jiang Xue suddenly shook her head and said, “If Tanhua Sect can survive, you can just stay.”
“I want to marry you, not her,” he said, frowning.
No matter how well Xian Xianghua treated him, she still could not surpass Jiang Xue in his heart.
Jiang Xue sighed and said, “During this time, I’ve thought about it. Actually, she’s really good to you. With her around, no one can harm you…”
If it wasn’t for Xian Xianghua, Zhou Xuanji might have already died several times.
No matter how much Jiang Xue loved him, she did not want him to continue running around like a fugitive, risking his life.
Xian Xianghua was domineering, and she was the top demonic cultivator. Only a few could stand up to her in the world right now.
Under her protection, Zhou Xuanji could grow rapidly.
Huang Lianxin frowned. They looked at each other, but no one spoke.
Zhou Xuanji was really growing at a tremendous speed. None of them could protect Zhou Xuanji anymore, and each of them felt pressured by this. Especially Jiang Xue, who was facing such a strong competitor such as Xian Xianghua, her stress was unimaginable.
“You are the one I love. Not because of your power, but because of who you are.”
Zhou Xuanji held up Jiang Xue’s hands and said genuinely.
This was from the bottom of his heart.
“I understand,” Jiang Xue smiled gently and said, “But she’s so good to you. Are you really not moved?”
In the Northern Wilderness Region, it was conventional for a man to have multiple wives, and she was not aversed to it. Moreover, Huang Lianxin had taught her many ways to deal with concubines.
“I promise you today, no matter what happens, I will marry you first!”
Zhou Xuanji said with determination. This was his promise as a man!
Having heard him, Jiang Xue’s hands crawled toward his waist as she said with a smile, “You say one thing and mean another. Actually, you want to marry her, right?”
Zhou Xuanji pretended to be in pain from her pinch while the others burst out into laughter.
A while later, Daoya Old Man and Han Shenbo returned.
Their expressions looked grave, which did not change after they saw Zhou Xuanji.
“Xuanhe Divine Monk, the Four Legendary Generations, Ta Tianchen, Huang Hantian, the Evil Lord, and so on. All these powerful cultivators are planning to attack Tanhua Sect. This time, it might be even more dangerous than their attack at Duantian Cliff.”
Han Shenbo said while gritting his teeth. They were just waiting for their demise by staying at Fallen Immortal Heavenly Lake.
Xian Xianghua was severely injured the previous time. Could she turn things around this time?
Daoya Old Man looked at Zhou Xuanji and sighed, “Your enemies have gathered here. Even if I can persuade Xuanhe not to attack us, we will still be in danger.”
Zhou Xuanji frowned. He did not expect Tanhua Sect’s crisis to come so quickly.
At this moment, Xian Xianghua appeared behind him suddenly and grabbed his shoulder. She said with a smile, “Time’s up, my little husband, it’s time for you to continue your cultivation. Don’t be reluctant to leave. You will have plenty of time to spend with your little lover in the future.”
Jiang Xue heard her and blushed immediately.
Just as she was about to speak, Xian Xianghua disappeared with Zhou Xuanji on the spot.
They looked at each other in dismay.
“This old demonic woman really fell in love. Next time, I will become her grand-teacher?” Daoya Old Man sighed, “Hmm, thinking about it like this, it feels really good. Back then, she bullied… Cough cough.”
He suddenly remembered his shameful past and did not want to embarrass himself.
On the other side, Zhou Xuanji returned to the palace. Full of rage, he looked at Xian Xianghua and cursed, “What’s the damn hurry? Why can’t I stay a while longer?”
Xian Xianghua grabbed him by his chin with such extreme speed that he was unable to dodge her hand. “Because I don’t want you to stay a while longer,” she said with a smile.
