God Emperor Chapter 723
After swallowing the Saintly Being Dharma Laksana, the short and thin man emerged unscathed and became more invigorated. He hooked his finger to beckon Xu Yunling and said with a smile, “Come again.”
All the monks from the Eastern Region were afraid. They never thought that a monk that the demonic sect sent so casually could be so powerful.
“The man is too freakish! Elder Brother Xu has been top-class under the Half-Saint, but the man can take him down.”
Huang Yanchen was also astonished as she said, “The man can defeat the Saintly Being within the same realm, so he is definitely not a nobody. Who is he?”
Everybody was shocked by the power he exposed.
Zhang Ruochen, however, acted calmly. “He must be the head of 36 Palace-keeping Beast Guardians of the demonic sect, Devil Rat, and he is also known as ‘Captain Rat.’”
“Captain Rat, Snake Two, and Dragon Three are rather ferocious. They may even be stronger than the Saintly Being. Among them, Captain Rat is the most amazing. Compared to the Demon Son Ouyang Huan, he is not much weaker.”
Luo Shuihan said, “Right! This man must be Captain Rat. Perhaps he could confront the first level Half-Saint.”
Devil Rat was from the ancient times, so he was very rare and his strength was fairly powerful.
Devil Rat’s progenitors were capable of eating gods and devouring devils. They were known as one of the scariest monsters during the Archean Times, that even the Dragon tribe also tried to avoid them.
However, Devil Rat could not breed well. According to the legend, they had become extinct in the Middle Ancient Times. Until a few decades ago, a Saint from the demonic sect dug out a devil rat from a medieval relic.
Captain Rat quickly rushed forward and struck out his palms to hit the left and right sides of Xu Yunling’s head.
Xu Yunling’s scalp exploded, exposing white bones and seven holes bleeding. He fell backward and lay helplessly on the ground.
Seeing this, the monks from the Eastern Region felt suffocated as if they were struck by lightning.
Without making any counterattacks, a Saintly Being was sprawled on the floor from a heavy blow.
Captain Rat fell on the ground, moved toward Xu Yunling, and stepped on Xu Yunling’s face. With a crack, Xu Yunling’s nose broke.
Captain Rat gave a dim-witted smile and ruthlessly said, “If we weren’t in the Yin and Yang Sect, I would eat you up. The Saintly Being must be delicious.”
Xu Yunling reached out with his hands and tried to stand up.
Captain Rat stepped again on Xu Yunling who was sprawled on the ground. Captain Rat looked at the monks from the Eastern Region and showed a defiant look. “Saintly Being of the Eastern Region can’t even withstand a single blow. I haven’t enjoyed myself to the fullest. Is there anyone else who wants to fight?”
Everytime Captain Rat fixed his gaze on a man, the man would immediately lower his head, quickly retreat, and did not even dare make eye contact with him.
Even a powerful person like Xu Yunling could not strike back while confronting Captain Rat.
Who would dare contend him?
Among the talented people of the Eastern Region, there were several men who were stronger than Xu Yunling’s Saintly Being. They were all very well-known. However, when they saw Xu Yunling sprawled out under Captain Rat’s feet, they immediately closed their eyes and pretended not to hear his provocation.
They thought as long as they endured on a little longer and feigned ignorance, they might be able to escape unharmed.
If they snuck out, they would probably be beaten into a jelly. Then, they would be thoroughly discredited.
Watching everybody avoid his gaze, Captain Rat suddenly felt bored. “It appears that I won’t find a worthy match from the cultivation circle of the Eastern Region. All of you are either mediocre or a coward.”
The other three Palace-keeping Beast Guardians, including Snake Two, Dragon Three, and Centipede Eight looked at those monks and laughed scornfully.
“The Divine Son has planned to test the Eastern Region heroes personally. But now it seems that there’re no heroes, only a group of bears. Hah-hah!”
The four Palace-keeping Beast Guardians maliciously scolded, but nobody stood out and everyone stayed silence.
Ouyang Huan opened his eyes and stood up. He held the pterosaur in his hands and faintly smiled. “Let’s go! Even though the Eastern Region is vulnerable, we may get be surprised when we go to other regions.”
Ouyang Huan walked away first. The four guardians followed him closely and were also ready to leave.
Ao Xinyan was sitting nearby when Zhang Ruochen suddenly stood up. She gave a cold look at Ouyang Huan before saying, “Hold on!”
The two words echoed loudly in the quiet rock cave.
Zhang Ruochen raised his head and stared at her.
He realized that Ao Xinyan was not in a good mood. When she looked at Dragon Three, her eyes were full of anger and resentment.
Ouyang Huan and the four guardians stopped, turned around and looked behind.
They stared at Ao Xinyan.
Centipede Eight said with a smile, “What’s up? In the Eastern Region, men are cowards. Is a woman like you going to fight? Girl, you have a beautiful face and an excellent figure. In that case, I’ll kindly accept you.”
As Centipede Eight was about to rush forward, Dragon Three reached his hand out and put it on his shoulder.
Dragon Three’s hand was as heavy as a mountain which prevented Centipede Eight from moving.
“Third Brother, what are you doing?” Centipede Eight said.
Dragon Three did not say a word and moved forward. He stood opposite to Ao Xinyan with an evil smile. “I have yet to discover that Your Highness is here. I, Ao Bing, have come to pay my respects to you.”
Ao Bing was Dragon Three’s real name.
Ao Xinyan was trembling all over and said, “Ao Bing, you traitor. Hand over the divine dragon bone and go back with me to the Divine Dragon Half-human Clan to plead guilty.”
“Your Highness, is that an order?”
Dragon Three spread his hands out and said with a smile, “Unfortunately, I’ve refined the divine dragon bone and integrated it with my left hand. I can’t hand it over. Furthermore, I’m not a member of the Divine Dragon Half-human Clan, I am a Palace-keeping Beast Guardian of the Moon Worship Sect. Even if the patriarch comes here personally, not to mention a royalty, there is nothing that they can do to me.”
The patriarch had planned to hand over the divine dragon bone to Ao Xinyan in her coming-of-age ceremony to let her refine and absorb, so she could activate the Divine Dragon Blood Meridian in her body.
However, the day before the ceremony, Ao Bing, who was guarding the divine dragon bone, stole it. Since then, it had disappeared from the Kunlun’s Field.
Until today, when Ao Xinyan saw Dragon Three and identified him as the traitor, Ao Bing.
Dragon Three’s words were beyond Ao Xinyan’s endurance.
She immediately drew her Bluewater Dragon Patterned Sword and stabbed Dragon Three.
In an instant, steam gathered from the surroundings, condensing to a dozen Sword Qi, passing through in the rock cave. In the end, they condensed to a point and struck at Dragon Three’s heart.
Dragon Three shook his head and laughed. He reached out with two fingers and tightly clamped the Bluewater Dragon Patterned Sword. He said, “Your Highness, you practice at a very high speed. I am surprised that you have reached this realm. You deserve to be the top genius of the Divine Dragon Half-human clan after a few hundred years. Once you’ve refined the divine dragon bone, your cultivation would be even more profound.”
Ao Xinyan was angry and wanted to draw her Bluewater Dragon Patterned Sword. However, no matter how hard she tried, she could not overcome Dragon Three’s two fingers.
She loosened her grip, gathered Holy Qi to her snow-white hand, and hit his chest with her palm.
Dragon Three’s eyes flashed with a murderous look.
If he lets Ao Xinyan go, the masters of the Divine Dragon Half-human Clan would find hunt him down until they’ve killed him.
He knew clearly how profound the background of the Divine Dragon Half-human Clan was. Despite hiding in the Moon Worship Sect, he might not be safe.
“So, why can’t I kill Ao Xinyan first?”
Black dragon Qi surged out from him and flew to his arms. He attacked Ao Xinyan with one palm.
All of a sudden, her amulet treasures broke. With a scream, she spat out a mouthful of blood and fell backward like a broken kite.
“He wants to kill her.”
Zhang Ruochen could tell that Dragon Three had a strong murderous intent.
“He was daring enough to kill people in the territory of the Yin and Yang Sect.”
Anyhow, there was no way Zhang Ruochen was only going to sit quietly and do nothing. Otherwise, Ao Xinyan would probably die here.
Zhang Ruochen who had been sitting on a chair shook his body and disappeared. The next moment, he had stood at the center of the rock cave and reached out his hands to hold Ao Xinyan.
He supported her legs with one hand and held her back with the other hand. He soon realized that she was heavily injured. She looked pale, her breathing was weak, and she had a bleeding mouth, nose, eyes, and ears.
He activated the Holy Qi inside, ran it on his palms, and slowly injected the Qi into her body to help her heal.
Her slender body was enveloped with holy light.
Moments later, Ao Xinyan coughed and gradually regained her consciousness. She opened her eyes and saw that she was laying in a stranger’s arms.
This man was Lin Yue from the Yin and Yang Sect.
“Don’t move. You’re badly injured,” Zhang Ruochen said.
Ao Xinyan was reluctant and tried to wiggle free from Zhang Ruochen’s arms.
However, she soon discovered something very shocking. The Holy Qi that Lin Yue injected into her body matched hers.
She was a member of the Divine Dragon Half-human Clan, so her Holy Qi contained both human Qi and dragon Qi.
“Does that mean Lin Yue’s Holy Qi also contains both human Qi and dragon Qi?”
Even so, it was unlikely that their Holy Qi was a perfect match.
In the entire Kunlun’s Field, only the deceased Zhang Ruochen’s Holy Qi could completely match with her dragon Qi inside. Zhang Ruochen had saved her with the Dragon Pearl, so their Holy Qi had combined once and formed an internal circulation.
The situation back then was very similar to what was happening at this moment.
Ao Xinyan gently opened her red lips and widened her beautiful eyes to look at Lin Yue. She was completely dumbfounded.
Dragon Three squinted his eyes and stared at Zhang Ruochen. He coldly said, “Guy, if you’re sensible, you better mind your own business and give Her Highness to me to avoid trouble.”
Zhang Ruochen tilted his face and glanced at Dragon Three as he said, “What if I’m not sensible?”
