Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The woman following the people from Moon Illumination Sect was none other than Chi Mei, the Mountainshade Black Market’s assassin. Currently, she was looking at Duan Ling Tian as she muttered to herself, “I’m sure we’ll be able to find her if we follow him.”
“Zi’er, I’ll return for a while. Help me to keep an eye on him alright? Don’t let him leave your sight,” Chi Mei said to the purple bird on her shoulder.
“Alright, Sister,” the purple bird replied a little listlessly, “How boring! And here I thought I’ll be able to crack my knuckles a little.”
“If you want to crack your knuckles, you can just play some games with them, right? However, make sure you don’t touch those who are close to him,” Chi Mei replied as she looked at the people in front.
Upon hearing that, the purple bird turned energetic and was in high spirit immediately. It urged Chi Mei, “Sister, hurry up and go back!”
At this moment, the purple bird looked completely different from the purple bird before.
Chi Mei shook her head and did not say anything before she vanished in the sky without a trace.
In just a blink of an eye, she had already flown to the far distance to where the nest of the Mountainshade Black Market was located.
After Chi Mei left, the purple bird’s eyes gleamed brilliantly. Without warning, it spread out out its wings and shot toward the Moon Illumination Sect’s people like a streak of purple lightning.
An ear-piercing sound of wind whistling sounded, causing the people from Moon Illumination Sect to be on guard.
“What’s that?” At this instant, the people could only see a gigantic figure hanging above them like a dark cloud hanging over a city, blocking the sunlight that was shining down on them.
When they raised their heads, they were shocked to see a large purple bird hovering in the sky, glaring at them with a piercing gaze.
When that giant purple bird spread its wings, it was like the clouds in the sky. It emitted a strong pressure.
Bai Li Hong, Zhong Huo, and the other two Moon Illumination Sect’s inner court elders were on guard, prepared for any eventualities. All of the inner court disciples, including Duan Ling Tian, were shocked and terrified.
Suddenly, a voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears. “Boy, is there anybody in your group that you hate?” This was the content of the Voice Transmission.
“Who’re you?!” When Duan Ling Tian heard the feminine voice, he glanced left and right but could not find where the True Energy Voice Transmission came from.
“You’re really stupid! Why don’t you raise your head if you want to see who I am?” The voice resonated again and took Duan Ling Tian by surprise. He only regained his senses after a while. “Y-You’re a huge bird?”
“What huge or small bird? How unpleasant… Listen, I’m a Super Saint Beast. I’m the Purplecloud Thunder Roc. Not just a huge bird or something!” The gigantic purple bird transmitted its voice once again. Its voice was filled with disdain.
The Super Saint Beast, Purplecloud Thunder Roc?
The moment Duan Ling Tian heard the gigantic purple bird’s words, he was slightly shocked, and then he began to study it earnestly. He noticed it was similar to a roc, but there was also a great difference. It had a golden horn on its head.
‘If she didn’t tell me, I wouldn’t know it’s actually a she,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“Boy, I’m asking you a question… Is there anyone you hate among this group of people?” The Purplecloud Thunder Roc asked again.
Although he had no idea why the Purplecloud Thunder Roc would ask such a question, Duan Ling Tian instinctively looked at Zhong Huo, the Vice Sect Leader of Moon Illumination Sect, right away.
He had no idea why. Maybe it was because he could sense Zhong Huo’s hostility toward him, and he felt annoyed by it.
“You must be a Saint Beast, right? I wonder if there’s a reason you’re obstructing our way?” Zhong Huo asked as he took a step forward and cupped his hands together in front of his chest.
Although he did not recognize the gigantic purple bird at all, the aura it was emitting faintly was enough to make him feel pressured.
The fact that this beast could make him, an Imminent Saint Stage powerhouse, feel pressured meant that it had to be at the Saint Stage.
He could tell the gigantic purple bird was a Saint Beast because there was a huge difference between the aura of a Saint Beast and a wild beast. It was obvious the gigantic purple bird was not one of the mindless wild beasts. This could be seen in its pair of keen eyes.
The gigantic purple bird, otherwise known as the Purplecloud Thunder Roc, spoke like a human. It answered lazily, “I’m bored, so why can’t I?”
The corner of Zhong Huo’s mouth twitched violently for a moment. What kind of reason was this?
Bai Li Hong, the two other inner court elders, and all of the inner court disciples, excluding Duan Ling Tian, were stunned.
Although Duan Ling Tian was not stunned, the corner of his mouth also twitched violently the moment he heard the Purplecloud Thunder Roc’s words.
When he saw how the Purplecloud Thunder Roc was glaring at Zhong Huo with killing intent, Duan Ling Tian knew Zhong Huo was doomed… At this moment, he could not help but think to himself, ‘Did I bring trouble to Zhong Huo?’
Before Duan Ling Tian managed to finish his thought, the Purplecloud Thunder Roc’s wings suddenly moved.
Two waves of ripples spread out from its wings.
In the wake of the purple ripples, the sky seemed to have stopped in time. Meanwhile, apart from Zhong Huo, the people from Moon Illumination Sect were forced to retreat by the impact from the purple ripples. In just a blink of an eye, they had retreated to more than 100 meters away.
By the time they returned to their senses, only the Purplecloud Thunder Roc and Zhong Huo’s figures were left behind in the distance.
Hovering in the air, the Purplecloud Thunder Roc looked down at Zhong Huo and lazily said, “You’ll accompany me to loosen my knuckles then.”
The moment Zhong Huo heard its words, his sight blackened for a moment, and he almost fainted on the spot.
Previously, he had only suspected the Purplecloud Thunder Roc before him was a Saint Beast that had entered the Saint Stage. However, he was 100% certain it was a Saint Stage Saint Beast after witnessing its technique.
A Saint Stage Saint Beast actually wanted him to accompany it to loosen its knuckles?
Would that not result in him having all his bones broken?
“Senior, I’m Zhong Huo, the Vice Sect Leader of Moon Illumination Sect. If I’ve ever offended you before, please do let me know, and I’ll sincerely apologize to you,” Zhong Huo said to the Purplecloud Thunder Roc. He had a terrified expression on his face, and his voice had even begun to tremble.
At this moment, he hoped the Saint Stage Saint Beast before him would let him go for the sake of the Moon Illumination Sect.
However, the Purplecloud Thunder Roc’s reply caused the color to drain from his face even more.
“Moon Illumination Sect? I’ve never heard of it before! As for you, you’ve also never offended me before. I just wanted to find you to help me loosen my knuckles… Don’t worry, I won’t kill you,” the Purplecloud Thunder Roc said nonchalantly as it shook its head.
The moment its words left its mouth, it seemed to have transformed into a purple hurricane and swept out to where Zhong Huo was at.
In the distance, Duan Ling Tian and the group of inner court disciples from the Moon Illumination Sect could only see a purple hurricane sweeping out. In the next instant, Zhong Huo was gone as though he had disappeared.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian knew Zhong Huo did not really disappear. They just could not see properly because the speed was too fast.
“Saint Stage Saint Beast.” At this moment, whether it was Bai Li Hong or the other two inner court elders, all of them only had a wry smile on their faces.
They could vaguely see the rapid-moving figures in front. They could not bear to watch Zhong Huo’s pitiful sight at all.
Naturally, they did not dare to go and help as well.
If the Saint Stage Saint Beast became unhappy and wanted to find them to loosen its knuckles too, would they not die in vain?
Currently, even Bai Li Hong counted himself lucky that the Saint Stage Saint Beast chose Zhong Huo and not him.
Bai Li Hong thought the Saint Stage Saint Beast had randomly picked Zhong Huo.
If he knew the reason it picked Zhong Huo to accompany it to loosen its knuckles was because of Duan Ling Tian, it made one wonder what kind of expression he would make.
“Saint Stage Saint Beast?” Duan Ling Tian’s face turned glum. He also realized the Purplecloud Thunder Roc was a Saint Stage Saint beast.
The moment he recalled how the Saint Stage Saint Beast transmitted its voice to him, he could not help but be filled with confusion.
Why would this fellow ask him who he hated?
Not only that, but he only glanced at Zhong Huo instinctively, and in the next moment, Zhong Huo was doomed.
It seemed as though the Purplecloud Thunder Roc was helping him to vent his anger.
He was sure he had never met this Purplecloud Thunder Roc before. Not only that, but this was also the first time in his life he had ever laid eyes on a Saint Stage Saint Beast.
“What kind of luck do I have today? In just a day, I actually encountered two Saint Stage powerhouses… I wonder if there’s any connection between the two? Duan Ling Tian had no idea why, but when he thought until the end, he actually linked the Purplecloud Thunder Roc and Chi Mei, that Mountainshade Black Market’s assassin, together.
“How useless! Fine! I won’t play with you anymore… I think it’s better if I return to the Moon Illumination Sect with you and find the strongest person in the sect to play with! I’m sure it’ll be even more interesting.” Soon after, Duan Ling Tian and the others heard the Purplecloud Thunder Roc’s voice resonating in the air.
In the next moment, the Purplecloud Thunder Roc and Zhong Huo appeared simultaneously. The Purplecloud Thunder Roc appeared to be in high spirit and looked the same as before. However, Zhong Huo seemed as though he had just been tortured. Apart from the green and red marks all over his body, his robe was also badly torn.
Moreover, he was currently hovering in the air with the last of his strength. As he staggered, it seemed as though he would fall at any time.
Although Zhong Huo appeared wretched, he still sighed in relief.
“Master!” At this moment, He Zhong ran up to him in a timely manner. When he looked at the Purplecloud Thunder Roc, a hint of dread could be seen in his eyes as well.
“Let’s go. I’ll follow you back to the Moon Illumination Sect.” The people from Moon Illumination Sect turned pale after hearing the Purplecloud Thunder Roc’s words. Its body trembled slightly before it transformed into a purple-clad young girl who looked about sixteen to seventeen years old. The fair and delicate face that still contained a hint of childishness looked as though it would break with just a snap of a finger.
She was a beautiful girl indeed.
However, nobody was focused on her look after she had transformed into a human. Instead, they were all taken aback by her domineering manner.
She had suddenly appeared out of nowhere and said she wanted someone to accompany her to loosen her knuckles. Then, Zhong Huo, the Vice Sect Leader of Moon Illumination Sect, was unluckily chosen by her.
If Duan Ling Tian did not witness this with his own eyes, he would find it difficult to relate the purple-clad young girl in front of him to the Purplecloud Thunder Roc.
