Chapter 215: Demon Chief’s Excitement
Zhou Xuanji’s gaze fell on the two demon statues. They each had three heads and six arms and were half-naked from the waist up. Their muscles were incredibly exaggerated and they had fangs exposed. They looked incredibly savage and terrifying, as if they were hellish asuras.
“They are the guardian gods from when the Tanhua Sect was established, Green Flame and Black Wrath; they fell a long time ago.
“Back then, because of Green Flame and Black Wrath, the Tanhua Sect was able to establish itself in the chaotic Northern Wilderness.”
Xian Xianghua introduced them to Zhou Xuanji, a look of respect in her eyes.
Even though she greatly despised the Ancient Diablo, she was proud of the Tanhua Sect’s legacy.
Swish! Swish! Swish…
The sound of the air being torn could be heard as tens of black-clothed people appeared ahead. They all knelt and cupped their fists as they called out, “We greet the Sect Lord!”
These people were all at the Astral Projection stage and there was a faintly discernible killing intent coiling around their bodies.
Xian Xianghua calmly responded, “Mm.”
She then walked forwards, her right hand still holding on to Zhou Xuanji’s arm, while Jiang Han followed closely behind.
Only after they had walked through the gates did the people in black look up.
“Who is that person being pulled along by the Sect Lord?”
“That’s right. It’s the first time we’ve seen something like this. The Sect Lord has never touched captives in the past.”
“There’s also a beauty behind them. Heh heh, she looks like she tastes good.”
“Shh, it’s said that the Sect Lord is going to revive the Ancient Diablo. We need to be careful or we might be kicked out of the Tanhua Sect.”
“We’ve been waiting for this day for so long. Once the Ancient Diablo is revived, our Tanhua Sect will no longer be in such a wretched position.”
The people in black discussed among themselves, all feeling quite excited.
When mentioning the Ancient Diablo, they all looked fanatical, as if they were talking about their religion.
On the other side, Zhou Xuanji continued walking with Xian Xianghua.
He saw many demonic cultivators along the way, men and women. Whenever they saw Xian Xianghua, they would kneel and pay their respects.
The region under the Fallen Immortal Heavenly Lake had rather dense spirit qi, and there were people sitting and cultivating wherever he looked.
Zhou Xuanji could not help but wonder if the Tanhua Sect had really gone into decline.
How come he found that it looked quite prosperous?
A while later, Zhou Xuanji saw another Demon Chief. He was called the Fury Wave Demon Chief, and was dressed in a forest green robe and wore a black crown that resembled an eagle’s head. He knelt in front of Xian Xianghua and asked excitedly, “Sect Lord, when will we revive the Ancient Diablo?”
Xian Xianghua coldly harrumphed, “I have my own plans; who asked for you to blabber?”
The Fury Wave Demon Chief was greatly scared and shrunk back before hurriedly kowtowing in apology
“Settle her down somewhere. In the future, she will be the Executive of the Tanhua Sect; do not slight her,” Xian Xianghua said as she pointed at Jiang Han. Hearing this, the Fury Wave Demon Chief looked at Jiang Han in surprise.
Who was this woman and why was she able to become an Executive?
He did not dare to ask and could only follow orders.
Xian Xianghua continued to drag Zhou Xuanji.
“Who is he?” The Fury Wave Demon Chief asked Jiang Han out of curiosity.
Jiang Han replied, “Zhou Xuanji.”
The Fury Wave Demon Chief frowned; this name sounded quite familiar.
Sword God Zhou!
The most powerful genius in the Northern Wilderness in the past 10,000 years. He was the youngest person to ever enter the Northern Wilderness’ Top 100, and was ranked first on the Northern Wilderness Genius Rankings…
All kinds of titles that had shaken the Northern Wilderness flashed in the Fury Wave Demon Chief’s mind.
He could not help but feel excited; could it be that Zhou Xuanji really was going to become the Tanhua Sect’s Vice Sect Lord?
If it was anyone else, he would not be convinced, even if they were in the Northern Wilderness’ Top 100.
However, he had high expectations of Zhou Xuanji.
After all, Zhou Xuanji was the number one talent in the entire world.
He was only 22 years old right now!
The Fury Wave Demon Chief thought back to when he was 20 years old; he had not even set upon the road of cultivation yet.
“The Tanhua Sect is going to rise up,” he muttered to himself. Hearing this, Jiang Han gave a proud smile.
After all, Zhou Xuanji was her granddaughter’s fiancé!
Xian Xianghua kicked open a set of massive doors and dragged Zhou Xuanji in.
Zhou Xuanji looked about the palace; this palace was incredibly spacious and was a dazzling sight. The ground was glossy and smooth and many different-colored spirit stones were socketed in the stone pillars.
“This is my resting palace. In the future, you will live here. If you need anything, just call out.”
Xian Xianghua waved her right hand, and the doors closed.
She said with a smile, “If you want women, the Tanhua Sect has plenty; you can play with them as you wish.”
Zhou Xuanji raised his eyebrows as he asked, “Really?”
Xian Xianghua whispered into his ears coldly, “Of course.”
Zhou Xuanji felt speechless – just what do you want?
Should I play with women or not?
Following this, Xian Xianghua walked into a pool at the center of the palace. She performed hand seals, starting to cast some kind of technique.
Zhou Xuanji walked over and asked, “What are you doing?”
“Helping you create a Spirit Gathering Formation. This is a spirit pool and you can cultivate within it,” Xian Xianghua replied, making him feel quite delighted.
Now that he cultivated the World Buddha Art, he needed large amounts of spirit qi.
“That’s right, you have to protect my Jiang Xue. If anything happens to her, I won’t forgive you. If she dies, I’ll take my own life as well,” Zhou Xuanji reminded her. Hearing this, Xian Xianghua rolled her eyes, ignoring him.
A while later, Xian Xianghua finished and said, “You cultivate here; I have matters to take care of.”
After saying this, she disappeared.
Zhou Xuanji was not worried that there was anything wrong and took off his Ruyi Purple Cloud Robe and slowly walked into the spirit pool.
“Zhi zhi zhi…”
The Three-eyed Drought Rodent ran out, shedding his clothes.
Back when he had descended to recover from his injuries, the little follow had leaped into his clothes and had remained there until today.
Zhou Xuanji smiled at it and sat down and started to cultivate in the spirit pool.
The spirit pool was half a meter deep and two feet wide. Adding on the Spirit Gathering Formation’s effects, the spirit qi was dozens of times denser here than in the outer world.
Adding on the Tianxia Map as well…
Zhou Xuanji’s heart beat quickly as he started to cultivate the First Level of the World Buddha Art.
While cultivating the art, spirit qi entered his body and his cultivation increased. However, it was not as much as when concentrating on internalizing qi.
After cultivating for a while, he felt quite delighted.
At this kind of speed, he was confident that he could complete the First Level of the World Buddha Art in one year, World Internalisation!
The latter two levels were hundreds of times more difficult, if not more.
At the same time, within a different palace.
Xian Xianghua sat on the main seat, and there were dozens of higher-ups from the Tanhua Sect gathered below.
“Sect Lord, we heard from the Fury Wave Demon Chief that you brought Zhou Xuanji back?” An elder with blood-red hair asked excitedly. He was quite short and wore a yellow robe with leopard spots, and looked quite vulgar.
He was one of the other Tanhua Sect’s Three Demon Chiefs, the Blood Wing Demon Chief!
The other Elders and Hall Masters all looked at Xian Xianghua expectantly.
Xian Xianghua calmly nodded and replied, “After reviving the Ancient Diablo, I will be marrying him so that he can never leave the Tanhua Sect.”
Hearing this, everyone stared with wide eyes.
No one objected and no one felt any jealousy.
Even though some of them had liked Xian Xianghua in the past, those feelings had been destroyed by her heartlessness and savageness.
“This is feasible. We can greatly nurture him, and with his talent, he might be able to enter the top 10 in the next World Millennium Duel. The next one, he’ll be able to rival Yang Di!” The Fury Wave Demon Chief spoke more and more excitedly.
The others all nodded. They were almost sick of hearing news about Zhou Xuanji and many disciples within the sect discussed his matters.
