Emissaries From The Realm Above
The remainder of the army, which numbered tens of thousands of Loose Devils, casually flew towards the Yinyue mountains. Since the battle between the Loose Devils and Loose Immortals had stopped, there was naturally no further need for the army of Loose Devils to continue fighting.
The army of Loose Devils was being led by Wu Kong Xue, Lady Lian Yue, Wu Hei, Fire Devil and the others.
“Wu Kong Xue, since we came to a truce with the Loose Immortals, and the date for the descent of the Devil Realm’s Emissary draws near, should we continue to focus on defending our Sundering The Heavens Diagrams until the Devil Realm’s Emissary arrives?” Lady Lian Yue asked using Sound Transfer.
Wu Kong Xue was startled.
“The Devil Realm’s Emissary is descending? When is he descending? Why am I not informed?” Wu Kong Xue seemed sensitive towards the news of the Devil Realm’s Emissary descending.
Lady Lian Yue replied using Sound Transfer, “There is naturally a special technique for us mortals to communicate with the people of the Devil Realm. As for the time of descent, frankly, even I am not very clear. What I do know is… that the time for the descent of the Devil Realm’s Emissary is close.”
Wu Kong Xue nodded his head.
“Lian Yue, based on my understanding, for the Devil Realm’s Emissary to descend, do you know that it is extremely difficult to pierce through the barriers between two realms?” Wu Kong Xue asked in response.
Lady Lian Yue thus considered deeply for a moment.
“Wu Kong Xue, I also know that it is extremely difficult to move from one realm to another. However since the Devil Emperor of the Devil Realm told me that there will definitely be an Emissary descending, I obviously do not doubt his words. However, the reason as to why the Devil Realm’s Emissary has yet to descend onto the Mortal Realm could also be due to the difficulty involved.” Lady Lian Yue speculated.
From Lady Lian Yue’s point of view, based on the Devil Emperor of the Devil Realm’s desire for Sword Immortal Ni Yang’s treasures, if it was that easy to descend, Emissaries from the Devil Realm would have already arrived.
“For the past few days, the Devil Realm had ordered me to guard our set of Sundering The Heavens Diagrams carefully. The date for the Emissary’s descent should not be far.” Lady Lian Yue sighed.
For those experts who stood at the peak of the Mortal Realm, facing an Emissary from the realm above was truthfully a very unbearable thing.
“Let’s not bother with the Emissary’s descent for the time being. What we need to do now is to rebuild the Yinyue mountains. This is not solely because of the Yinyue Palace, but also for the accommodation of the many Loose Devils,” having said that, Wu Kong Xue frowned.
At that moment, the Yinyue mountains were still undergoing renovations. Even though they could not possibly let the Loose Devils live in the wild…
“Yinyue mountains, can it still be considered the entrance to the mountains?” Lady Lian Yue was extremely frustrated.
Having been burnt by Heavenly Flames, the mountain rocks were blackened while the soil no longer exist. Given such a mountain range, how would it be possible to plant trees, or even various plants? How would it be possible to even build a mountain entrance? The millions of years old mountain entrance that belonged to the clan had been reduced to such a state. Who would not be furious?
“Evil Lord Heavenly Flames!” When she thought about the culprit, Lady Lian Yue could not help biting hard into her teeth.
As they advanced by flight, the army of Loose Devils finally arrived at the Yinyue mountains.
“My Lady. There is huge trouble.” A Yinyue Palace Loose Devil who was scouting the surroundings rushed towards Lady Lian Yue from the front in alarm. “My Lady, in the Yinyue mountains, the Loose Devils and disciples who had survived are all dead, they are all dead!”
Lady Lian Yue’s Spiritual Awareness had already discovered that fact, and her entire body trembled.
The new construction site of the Yinyue mountains was stained with fresh blood, body pieces and corpses littered the entire area.
When Qin Yu had used the Heavenly Flames and burnt down the entire Yinyue mountains, there were still quite a number of Loose Devil survivors. When Wu Kong Xue later returned with the martial experts, there were still several hundreds of Loose Devils and several hundreds of Yinyue Palace disciples.
These Loose Devils and disciples had thus began reconstruction of the mountain entrance, but who would have imagined that everyone would now be dead upon their return.
“Even the last batch of disciples are dead.” Lady Lian Yue felt her heart trembling.
Wu Kong Xue’s facial expression became heavy. “Lian Yue, the number of people who attacked were extremely few. I estimate that only two or three people were involved in the attack. It was only that they were too strong; strong enough to kill all these hundreds of Loose Devils and hundreds of disciples without even a single one of them being able to call for help.” Wu Kong Xue remarked after carefully investigating with his Spiritual Awareness.
During their return, there was no transmission to request for aid. Therefore, those surviving Loose Devils and disciples were not able to call for help while they were being killed.
“Who, who was it?! To have even killed the last batch of my Yinyue Palace disciples!” Lady Lian Yue emitted frightening killing intent from her body. With the exception of Loose Devils, the remaining members of the Yinyue Palace were estimated to be the few remnants who were away in various other places.
Wu Kong Xue frowned.
“Brother Wu, what about our Sundering The Heavens Diagrams, did you leave it with any of these ordinary Loose Devils?” Fire Devil suddenly asked.
Immediately, the few great Loose Devils turned their heads and looked at Wu Kong Xue.
If Wu Kong Xue really did leave the set of Sundering The Heavens Diagrams on those dead Loose Devils, then it was very likely that the drawing had already been snatched away.
“No, of course not,” Wu Kong Xue laughed. “Once bitten, twice shy. For now, I have already kept the set of Sundering The Heavens Diagrams in a very safe place. No matter who the person, he or she will never figure out the location.” Wu Kong Xue replied confidently.
Those few great Loose Devils gave a sigh of relief.
Compared to the remaining few hundreds of Yinyue Palace disciples, the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams was more important.
If the disciples were dead, then they were dead. As long as the senior Loose Devils of Yinyue Palace were around, they could still accept new disciples. The only problem was that nurturing the new disciples would take quite a long time.
“How unlucky. I thought that Wu Kong Xue would leave the set of Sundering The Heavens Diagrams with those Loose Devils and disciples. Who would have thought that killing all of them yielded nothing,” Wu Shan, one of the three great wilderness Demons mused.
Killing all of the lucky surviving Yinyue Palace guards was Wu Shan’s idea.
Wu Shan rarely used his brain, but he had thought ‘What if that Wu Kong Xue once again left the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams with an ordinary Loose Devil or disciple?’
Having suggested this idea to Yu Liang, Yu Liang actually agreed. Truth be told, Yu Liang did not carry much hope. However, there was nothing wrong in trying it out since there was still a small chance. Thus, Yu Liang sent out his three Demon guardians to do the deed, while Yu Liang himself did nothing.
“Wu Shan, there is no need to say more. I would have been shocked if the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams is to drop into our hands that easily,” said Yu Liang with a faint smile. “Let us continue with what we had planned.”
Countless large trees and plants actually grew atop Qingxu Mountain.
Qingxu Mountain was still bare half a month ago, but currently, there was not much difference when compared to how it once was. Qingxu Mountain was still as beautiful as before, and even the holy ground – Shangtian Palace, was once again situated at the top of the mountain.
In actual fact, Reverend Mingliang had mobilised several tens of thousands of Loose Immortals to display their supernatural powers, directly transplanting huge pieces of land onto Qingxu Mountain. They had even moved mud slabs that were ten meters thick, and planted individual large trees one by one onto Qingxu Mountain.
Under the assistance of those several tens of thousands of Loose Immortals, within just a day, Qingxu Mountain had returned to its former glory.
At the ninth level of the Shangtian Palace, Reverend Ming Liang was standing within the center of a large formation.
“Ming Liang, currently in the Devil Realm and Demon Realm, Immortal Emperors are preparing their men for descent. While Yu Huang had invited several good friends to open the barriers of the Mortal Realm and Immortal Realm, the difficulty of opening the space barriers are very high. There is also the matter of stabilising the space barriers to increase the chances of success for the descending Emissary… *Sigh* Having said so much to you is also useless.”
“Martial Uncle-Ancestor, to have contacted us at this point in time, may I know if you have any orders?” Reverend Ming Liang inquired.
The person conversing with Reverend Ming Liang at that moment was his Martial Uncle-Ancestor.
In the Immortal Realm, the Qingxu Sect could not even be counted as a minor power. In fact, they could be considered to be on their last legs. It was only due to the Qingxu Sect possessing a set of Sundering The Heavens Diagrams in the Mortal Realm, that the members of the Qingxu Sect in the Immortal Realm suddenly had their reputations rising.
This Martial Uncle-Ancestor of Reverend Mingliang’s had thus been specifically sent to converse with him.
In the eyes of the Immortal Realm’s Yu Huang, the reputation of Reverend Ming Liang’s seniors were still lagging far behind Reverend Ming Liang himself.
“The reason for me to contact you at this point of time, is to inform you that an Emissary from the Immortal Realm will descend in about a month’s time. The place of descent should be at the location of the Qingxu Sect. When that time comes, all of you had better welcome him properly,” the Martial Uncle-Ancestor of Reverend Ming Liang warned.
“Please be at ease, Martial Uncle-Ancestor, when have I ever let you down before,” Reverend Ming Liang gave a faint smile.
Wasn’t it just welcoming an Emissary from the Immortal Realm? How hard could that be?
Reverend Ming Liang’s Martial Uncle-Ancestor smiled. “Right, you are indeed Qingxu Sect’s most talented disciple since the past countless years. It is also because of you that many of us seniors of the Qingxu Sect have our days changed dramatically. Let me tell you, Ming Liang, that Yu Huang of the Immortal Realm enjoys a very high reputation. It won’t be wrong for you to follow under him closely.”
“This disciple of yours understands,” Reverend Ming Liang nodded.
“Martial Uncle-Ancestor, do you happen to know how much power does the Emissary from the Immortal Realm possess?” Reverend Ming Liang inquired.
The Martial Uncle-Ancestor considered deeply for a brief moment. “Ming Liang, I am also uncertain regarding much power the Emissary from the Immortal Realm will possess. This is because it is already very difficult to pierce through the space barriers between two realms just to create a temporary space channel. The power level of the Emissary chosen will depend on the stability of the resulting space channel.”
“Ming Liang, from our point of view, breaking the space barrier is already an unbelievable thing. Although we can never even begin to imagine the powers that existences such as Yu Huang possess, it is very possible that they can break through the space barriers. However, I think that the resulting space channel should not be too stable, therefore it is not possible for a Mystic Immortal to pass through,” the Martial Uncle-Ancestor replied uncertainly.
Reverend Ming Liang nodded.
He understood that for a highly skilled expert to pass through the space barriers, the resulting space channel had to be proportionally stable. However, it was also proportionally difficult to create a stable space channel.
If an extremely strong expert were to pass through an unstable space channel, the unstable space channel would be unable to endure – resulting in its collapse! As a result, the expert would be caught between both realms and minced into pieces by the energy flowing in opposing directions between the cracked spaces.
