Immortal And Martial Dual Cultivation Chapter 1702Chapter 1702 (Raw 1714): Born of a Calamity
The Holy Son Ming Xuan showed a smile on his face as he flung his hand, tossing that young cat-eared girl heavily into the wall. Some blood leaked out of her mouth.
"Your pair of Black Star Cat Eyes are really pretty good. With the opportunity from a fate with Buddhism, you can actually see my heart. That is something that even the Temple Abbot of the Profound Light Sect could not discover."
As the Holy Son Ming Xuan slowly walked over, his warm and gentle appearance turned exceptionally scary in the eyes of the young cat-eared girl.
"Speak. Did you see a white-clad bladesman with a grave and stern face? If you dont speak, Ill dig out your eyes," Ming Xuan said with a smile, as though he was joking.
"I can figure out the answer from your eyes. Tell me, where is he?" Ming Xuan asked, still smiling as he stepped forward.
However, just at this moment, a tree root shot out from the ground and swung towards Ming Xuan at lightning speed.
The Holy Son Ming Xuans expression changed slightly as he moved back in haste, narrowly dodging.
Then, he threw a palm strike that shattered the tree root into countless wood shards scattering everywhere.
However, in the next moment, more than a hundred tree roots shot out from the ground. Every tree root was a sharp, lethal weapon. They continuously grew and tangled with each other, forming a flood dragon that charged at Ming Xuan.
"Star-Venerate-level Fiendish Demon?"
The Holy Son Ming Xuan frowned slightly. It looked like the rumors were true. There was indeed a Star-Venerate-level Fiendish Demon in this Buddha Seeking Platform.
However, it seemed like this Fiendish Demon suffered from some kind of restraint, unable to bring out its full strength. Just the strength displayed so far was insufficient to force Ming Xuan to back off.
A string of Buddhist prayer beads appeared in his right hand, held between his middle and index fingers. The dangling Buddhist prayer beads formed a hand seal as he thrust his hand forward.
A Buddha image sitting on a lotus platform appeared behind Ming Xuans back. This figure held Buddhist prayer beads in the same way and threw a palm strike.
Before the boundless, mighty force, the terrifying flood dragon made from tangled tree roots suddenly shattered into wood shards that filled the air and fell like snow.
The Holy Son Ming Xuan stood in the middle, looking outstandingly graceful, exuding an indescribable air.
At this moment, the young cat-eared girl was already standing on top of the wall, looking indifferently at the Holy Son Ming Xuan. Once she entered the temple, no matter how strong the other party was, she would not fear him.
"Evil Buddha Holy Son, leave. Dont contaminate this Ancient Cloud Temple with the filth behind you," the young cat-eared girl said coldly, not showing any expression on her face.
The Holy Son Ming Xuan smiled and said, "Interesting. Born out of a calamity, the naturally impure Fiendish Demons can actually consider themselves the master of the temple."
"Buddha gives consideration to all life, having a fate with all things. Anyone can become a Buddha. You merely look good on the outside but are ruined on the inside. To think that you use an evil method to temper your physical body. I really would like to see how you will eliminate your physical body and be reborn, gaining a Dharmic Body."
The young cat-eared girl showed neither joy nor rage. She merely looked at the Holy Son Ming Xuan with some disgust in her eyes.
"You are debating Buddhist principle with me? Unfortunately, I do not have the time to debate with you. Ill use an even faster method."
The Holy Son Ming Xuan smiled faintly and thumbed through the Buddhist prayer beads in his hand gently. Then, he chanted scriptures. "I have heard Buddha say, all living things sinned. The Buddhist doctrine is without boundaries, purifying the masses and following the flow of karma. Nature will not be exterminated"
"You want to purify me?"
The young cat-eared girl revealed a mocking, cold smile. This person was too naive, trying to purify her. One would need to be at least a Cloud Sea cultivator to do so.
However, in the blink of an eye, the young cat-eared girls expression changed drastically. The scripture echoed by her ears, entering her sea of consciousness and the depths of her soul.
She felt irritable for some reason. Her bright, pure black eyes slowly filled with scarlet.
The Holy Son Ming Xuan was not trying to purify the young cat-eared girl. Instead, he was trying to use the scriptures to dig out the innately filthy bloodline of the Fiendish Demons.
The Fiendish Demons of the world were formed by obtaining Immortal Qi after the Immortal Epoch was destroyed. This was what "born of a calamity" meant.
However, after the Immortal Epoch was destroyed, the six paths of reincarnation no longer existed. The world plunged into chaos, and the Immortal Qi was already no longer pure. No Fiendish Demon could shake free from the contaminated Immortal Qi in their bloodlines.
The serious cases would appear berserk and live for killing, unable to escape it no matter what.
This was the original sin of the Fiendish Demons: born of a calamity, innately impure.
The young cat-eared girl turned increasingly scary. A thick layer of scarlet light covered her entire body, looking exceptionally strange.
She roared and used her willpower to the utmost to jump off the wall, no longer daring to block the Holy Son Ming Xuan.
He withdrew his hand and snorted coldly. Heavy disdain flashed on his face.
The Holy Son Ming Xuan forcefully knocked down the gates and barged in. He swept his gaze around, trying to sense Xiao Chens location.
However, there was a will here that could not be disobeyed, interfering with the Holy Son Ming Xuans Mental Energy and preventing him from finding Xiao Chen.
"This Divine Vein powerhouse must have opened at least six veins. Otherwise, the lingering will would not be this strong," the Holy Son Ming Xuan muttered to himself.
Then, he shook his head, choosing to give up. He looked around and said coldly, "Stop hiding and come out. Lets settle this in one go."
Right after the Holy Son Ming Xuan spoke, the stone table in the yard changed shape, eventually taking the form of a humanoid stone monster.
Three unremarkable stalks of grass swayed on the ground before turning into two cold and quiet girls in their prime. A handsome man holding a sword walked out of a bamboo grove in the distance.
Three black birds descended from an old, withered tree and turned into three strange men covered in feathers.
"This place does not welcome you. Please leave," the stone monster said in the human tongue with a harsh tone.
The Holy Son Ming Xuan waved his hand and sent out an intense, piercing Buddhist light, which blasted the stone monster into countless stone shards that fell to the ground.
The other Fiendish Demons charged at the Holy Son Ming Xuan at the same time without saying a word. They surrounded him and launched their attacks.
The stone shards on the ground slowly gathered. The stone monster had not died yet.
On the other side, the young cat-eared girl showed a pained expression as she did her best to suppress the berserk aura in her body. She arrived at the back of the temple, above an ancient wall, her body radiating a scarlet light.
Withered roots draped down the wall. This was where the Star-Venerate-level tree spirit was.
"Grandpa Tree, the people with the heart of innocence and the heart of darkness both appeared as prophesied by the ancient Buddha." The young cat-eared girl spoke with much difficulty as she leaned against the wall, showing a pained expression.
An aged face appeared on the wall, and a few willow branches descended, soothing the young cat-eared girls irritable heart.
"That Evil Buddha Holy Son drew out all of the fiendish blood in your body. This will end your life, just like the prophecy says. Now, it depends on your choice. No matter whether you choose the bladesman with the heart of innocence or the Azure Lotus Holy Daughters emanation body, they can resolve your calamity."
Finding the advice strange, the young cat-eared girl echoed, "The Azure Lotus Holy Daughters emanation body?"
The Azure Lotus Church was born of Daoism and Buddhism. It was a huge faction with many believers and followers. However, Daoists and Buddhists did not accept them. This so-called emanation body was similar to the incarnation of Daoism but also somewhat different.
The emanation body was born of the emotions of the worldjoy, rage, grief, and happiness. Its character might be completely different from the true bodys, and the emanation body and the true body did not seem like they were the same person.
It was rumored that the Azure Lotus Churchs ancestor had three thousand emanation bodies, all of them cultivating in the world at the same time. When all three thousand emanation bodies simultaneously gained the Dao and merged with the true body, the Azure Lotus Churchs ancestor could gain a supreme Great Dao.
The aged face on the wall explained in a deep voice, "That would be the woman that arrived with that bladesman. No matter who you pick, you can resolve this calamity."
The young cat-eared girl nodded and said, "I understand."
After thinking for a while, she arrived at an answer and quickly left this place.
Grandpa Tree had already reached the limits of its lifespan and could not fight at full force. It would not be able to block that Evil Buddha Holy Son. If the young cat-eared girl remained here any longer, she would only attract disaster over. That was not what she wanted.
In front of the Wisdom Hall:
Wang Ce was on the verge of death. He held his sword and did his best. However, the many monks covered his body in injuries. Zhen Xuan did not even make a move.
Wang Ce used the Confucian Mantra once more. However, he was horrified to discover that his righteous Qi did not strengthen at all.
"Unbendable Might! Unbendable Might" Panic appeared on Wang Ces face, along with horror and confusion. "Why is it like this? How can it be?!"
The Confucian Mantras Unbendable Might could temporarily amplify ones combat prowess. It was one of the life-protecting measures of the Confucian sect disciples and was extremely hard to learn.
Wang Ce possessed incredible talent. Half a year ago, he succeeded in cultivating Unbendable Might. However, now, he discovered that he could not use it.
For some reason, Wang Ce recalled Xiao Chens words. The Confucian sects righteous Qi was about being magnanimous. Even if one had any schemes, one had to declare them openly.
Xiao Chen had said that Wang Ce was narrow-minded and pretended to be magnanimous. Hence, there was nothing to fear from Wang Ce.
At that time, Wang Ce showed disdain for those words. However, those words struck gold. After he killed his fellow disciples, he could not use Unbendable Might.
"Haha! That startled me. It turned out that your conscience is broken, so you cannot use the Confucian Mantra at all."
Zhen Xuan laughed loudly and attacked at lightning speed. He injured Wang Ce so thoroughly that Wang Ce lost all combat prowess, then ordered coldly, "Search him."
Soon, a few monks reported joyfully, "Senior Brother Zhen Xuan, there are five Wisdom Tea leaves in his storage ring as well as Buddhist sect holy pills."
Zhen Xuan entered deep thought, then revealed an expression of understanding. "No wonder this fellow even killed his sect mates and violated his conscience."
Wang Ce, who was on the ground, showed an unsightly expression, feeling extremely guilty and boundlessly regretful. However, the claw wound on his chest put him in so much pain that he could not get up.
Zhen Xuan put away the tea leaves and distributed the Medicinal Pills to the others. Then, he looked coldly at Wang Ce. "You are merely a pitiful worm. Just kill yourself. You are not worth my breaking abstinence for you."
Suddenly, Zhen Xuans expression changed when he felt a terrifying fiendish Qi. He looked around and happened to see the young cat-eared girl, who was radiating an increasingly denser scarlet light as time went by.
Zhen Xuan saw that the young cat-eared girl hid her hands in her sleeves. She ignored him and his fellow monks, just wanting to go past them.
"What a heavy fiendish Qi! Indeed, you Fiendish Demons revealed your true form in the end."
Zhen Xuan showed joy on his face. He primarily cultivated beneficence and could not randomly start killing others. However, killing Fiendish Demons could increase his beneficence and had a salutary effect on his cultivation.
Without a second thought, Zhen Xuan spread his arms, and a divine eagle bathed in Buddhist light soared into the sky. With one step, he charged in front of the young cat-eared girl.
"Dont push me!"
The young cat-eared girl did her best to suppress the Fiendish Demon blood in her body, making an unsightly face. When Zhen Xuan charged over, she could no longer control herself.
She let out a terrifying roar. The sound waves propagated and caused the surrounding halls to tremble. The many monks behind all collapsed at the same time, covering their ears in pain.
The young cat-eared girl thrust out her hand, which was hidden in the sleeve, at lightning speed in a palm strike. All her nails were bloody red, growing to about sixteen centimeters long and looking incredibly sharp.
The young cat-eared girls attack landed first despite her launching it later. She pierced Zhen Xuans chest, and then grabbed, crushing his heart.
With his heart shattered and a fiendish Qi assaulting him, Zhen Xuan quickly lost lifeforce. Filled with dissatisfaction, he looked at the young cat-eared girl, who had a terrifying expression and radiated a scarlet light from her entire body. Then, he fell over weakly, dying with his eyes open, a regretful death.
The many startled monks behind him went pale. Then, they screamed in horror and scattered in every direction.
A white figure with Buddhist arra Pearls landed silently. Xiao Chen happened to see the scene of the young cat-eared girl killing Zhen Xuan.
She looked at Xiao Chen with red eyes. After pausing for a moment, her figure flashed, rushing to the back of the temple.
Could it be that the person she chose to use to resolve her calamity was not Xiao Chen?
