I Have Countless Legendary Swords!
Chapter 708 - Chapter 708 The Conflict Between two Powerful Experts
“Who is he?” Nangong Jiayin asked gently.
Beast Sovereign’s spirit was really strong, giving her confidence.
Having seen Zhou Xuanji thank him, she believed that he should be from the Evil Sky Divine Range.
“The master of Evil Sky Divine Range, Beast Sovereign,” replied Zhou Xuanji.
When she heard this, Nangong Jiayin was like she was struck by lightning.
How is this possible!
These big shots came in person!?
She subconsciously looked at Zhou Xuanji.
How terrifying is this Kid’s talent exactly that it could even make the Master of the Evil Sky Divine Range treat him like this. The Range Master is secretly following and protecting him when he is out on a mission?
She had never heard of this kind of thing before. She found it absurd. Of course, it came more as a pleasant surprise.
With the Beast Sovereign making the move, they could be considered to be saved.
“Beast Sovereign, who is this guy?” Old Demon Soulmover asked in a deep voice, staring at the Beast Sovereign. His hoarse voice gave everyone the jitters.
An evil smile appeared on the Beast Sovereign’s face as he asked, “What do you think?”
Just as he said this, two golden spears appeared next to him. They were a hundred feet long and were giving rise to winds that circled around them, shaking the space.
“You want to catch this Sovereign’s human pet!? Old Demon Soulmover, today, you can forget leaving this place without getting skinned,” the Beast Sovereign stated in a strong and forceful voice.
Immediately, the two golden spears flew out, whistling through the air.
In an instant, a golden flash shimmered in the front, illuminating the entire dark space and swallowing the incomparably huge body of the Old Demon Soulmover.
“ROAR–!” the Old Demon Soulmover let out a thunderous roar.
The resulting shockwave from the roar caused Zhou Xuanji’s trio to feel dizzy.
Immediately, a warm and gentle force enveloped the trio, dispelling all of their discomfort.
Zhou Xuanji opened his eyes and found himself standing within a golden glow. Nangong Jiayin and Xie Huoli were standing next to him.
This should be inside the Beast Sovereign’s dao energy field.
Zhou Xuanji breathed a sigh of relief. He promptly took out the Holy Light Redemption Sword and pierced straight into his abdomen, starting to heal his injuries.
Nangong Jiayin and Xie Huoli looked at him with a strange look in their eyes.
“Are you possessed?” Nangong Jiayin asked, furrowing his brow.
The Beast Sovereign has already taken action. Can the Old Demon Soulmover still influence Zhou Xuanji’s mind?
Zhou Xuanji rolled his eyes at her and said, “I am healing!”
Is there this kind of healing method in the world?
Nangong Jiayin was curious, but she didn’t ask anything else.
Xie Huoli looked at Zhou Xuanji with a complicated look in his eyes.
What’s so special about Zhou Xuanji that he can be sheltered by a super powerhouse like the Beast Sovereign?
After about half an hour…
The surrounding golden light suddenly disappeared, leaving the trio standing in the starry sky dotted with shining stars.
“Zhou Xuanji, your mission is still on. This Sovereign can only help you deal with the enemies you can’t defeat. You will need to deal with your peers by yourself,” the Beast Sovereign’s voice reverberated in the universe. Only his voice could be heard; his figure was nowhere to be found.
Nangong Jiayin sighed and said, “Let’s go.”
The Beast Sovereign rescued them this time, but what about next time.
She understood that in the eyes of the Beast Sovereign, there was only Zhou Xuanji.
As for her, this mission only had 10% chance of survival.
The three of them continued to move forward. Xie Huoli reverted back to his half-dead look. His pair of eyes looked dull.
Zhou Xuanji and Nangong Jiayin kept moving forward at their full speed while paying attention to their surroundings.
“What do you think, who is stronger between Beast Sovereign and Old Demon Soulmover? What happened to Old Demon Soulmover just now?” Nangong Jiayin couldn’t help but ask.
The fear brought out by the Old Demon Soulmover was too great. But the crisis was easily solved just as Beast Sovereign appeared. It made her feel insignificant.
Dao Ancestors were indeed superior to many creatures but to some existences, they were really insignificant.
Zhou Xuanji replied, “Definitely the Beast Sovereign is stronger. But not too much, otherwise it wouldn’t have taken so long. And since he didn’t leave in a hurry, he might have suffered some injuries.”
In the distance, the Beast Sovereign, who was traveling through a time and space tunnel, had the corners of his lips twitch.
Can’t this Kid let me have some face?
Zhou Xuanji had indeed guessed it right. He had suffered some injuries. However, Old Demon Soulmover was in a more miserable state than he was.
The Beast Sovereign shook his head and quickly left for the Kunlun Origin Court.
On another side, Zhou Xuanji’s trio also flew toward the Kunlun Origin Court, but their strength was limited. They were quickly lost in the layers of universe, unable to find the right direction.
Even though the Kunlun Origin Court was above all universes, it was impossible to fly straight up to the Kunlun Origin Court.
Each universe had a different set of natural principles. Some universes had different directions and some were even spinning.
After six hours…
Ye Jun suddenly contacted Nangong Jiayin, asking where they were.
Nangong Jiayin had no idea where she was but she told him about their condition.
Ye Jun heaved a sigh and said, “We are in really big trouble. We don’t think we can escape. If you can’t complete the task, just forget it. It’s important to remain alive.”
Nangong Jiayin hit rock bottom when she heard this.
Is it possible that someone trapped us mysteriously?
“If that’s the case, we will try our best to escape. This mission is canceled. It’s better to live than to die. Let’s try our best to escape,” Ye Jun’s tone was filled with desolation. After speaking, he severed the connection between their ID cards.
Zhou Xuanji and Nangong Jiayin sank into silence, contemplating. Up until now, they had still not caught sight of anyone from the Emperor Divine Range. So the mission had stopped. How could they remain calm in their current predicament?
“Could it be that the Emperor Divine Range and Old Demon Soulmover are working together?” Zhou Xuanji asked Xie Huolo.
After all, it was impossible for Old Demon Soulmover to pass by here just by coincidence. There must be some reason.
Xie Huoli shook his head. He heaved a sigh and said, “The Emperor Divine Range isn’t the least bit inferior to your Evil Sky Divine Range. How much do you know about the Evil Sky Divine Range? The water of Super Divine Ranges runs too deep. There may be grudges between them but there may be collusion as well.”
Zhou Xuanji furrowed his brow.
Could it be there someone from the Emperor Divine Range in the Evil Sky Divine Range?
That’s right, after all, they are mortal enemies. For safety, they will definitely send spies to infiltrate hostile forces.
Zhou Xuanji didn’t speak and continued to think over this.
He suspected that the Beast Sovereign had used him as a chess piece and not just to let him get experience.
As the super genius of the Evil Sky Divine Ranger, he would definitely trigger the spies of the Emperor Divine Range once he went out.
Zhou Xuanji believed that this might be the reason.
The three continued to move forward at full speed.
After contact with Ye Jun, Nangong Jiayin became more nervous. She remained silent all the while. Although she was looking ahead, Zhou Xuanji could feel her Divine Will scanning around.
They kept traveling through the time and space tunnel, one after another. They didn’t stop even for a moment.
Much to Zhou Xuanji’s surprise, Xie Huoli had fallen asleep while being carried. It seemed that he had already accustomed to the life of hiding and being hunted.
In a flash, four days had passed.
They arrived at a deserted universe, where scattered dust, pieces of broken rocks, and some withered bodies were floating everywhere.
Obviously, there had been a massacre here before.
Zhou Xuanji was not new to this scene, so he didn’t feel any discomfort.
But ever since he entered this universe, he felt that something wasn’t right.
Nangong Jiayin was also feeling the same way. She immediately slowed down.
“Finally you are here, Zhou Xuanji,” a familiar voice rang from the front. Zhou Xuanji and Nangong Jiayin stopped immediately.
They focused their gaze and found Ying Zhuge standing on a side of a peak, looking at them calmly.
