Chapter 622: The Ancient Killing Sword’s Might
The Cang Yuan sword had fallen to the ground. The demon emperor brought a few guards with him and took the lead in rushing towards the direction the sword fell in. Huangfu Qingjue also held Ling Chuxi’s hand tightly as they both followed after the monster beasts.
Within the valley, an ancient sword stuck diagonally out of the ground, appearing vague and obscure yet incomparably clear. The sword’s ray was still flashing and the entire valley was infiltrated by a clear and chilling light.
Zhen Ye, Xiao Rou as well as Big Black Face stood by the side of the valley with their eyes popped open wide and mouths agape as they looked at the Cang Yuan Sword with its restrained murderous intent, not daring to take another step forward.
Aside from them, there was not even a shadow of any other monster beast around. This was Soul Training Valley, Little Silver Ancient Mountain’s forbidden grounds used as a disciplinary reserve. Even on a normal day, no monster beast would dare to easily come close to this place, what’s more on a day when a divine sword falls from the sky? Who would still dare to come over here?
The moment she got near the valley, Ling Chuxi felt her mind tremble and waves of piercing pain seem to be transmitted throughout her from within her mind.
No wonder the moment Xiao Rou and Big Black Face heard they were to repent in Soul Training Valley, they were immediately shocked into a lost demeanor. If it were not for Ling Chuxi having experienced the pain of being caught in the array’s barrier and obtaining the Core of Martial Path as a result, perhaps even she would not have been able to withstand it.
Upon seeing the sword, the demon emperor and the rest found it hard to suppress the excitement in their hearts and they quickly rushed over.
“Don’t!” shouted Ling Chuxi suddenly.
The moment the group of them had made a move, Ling Chuxi felt an extraordinarily familiar and full sense of a heart-palpating feeling arising in her heart. This sword gave her a familiar feeling, yet she sensed it was full of danger.
Back when she and Ling Yichen had gone in search of the treasure in Silver Ancient Mountain Range and encountered that odd sword, was it not the same? It was just that at this moment, the sword gave her a sense of danger far surpassing that which she had sensed the last time.
Ling Chuxi’s warning was just a moment too slow, and before her words fully fell, the demon emperor’s hand had already touched the hilt of the sword.
“No!” cried Ling Chuxi as her heart sank vigorously and an unprecedented terror filled it. Even when she was being swept into the barrier, she had not had such fear.
Even she herself did not know why she was this fearful. Logically speaking, with the demon emperor’s cultivation, she should not have any worries. However, when that baffling terror arose in her heart, she was unable to resist expressing it.
A sharp howl rang out in their hearts. A wave, then another wave, and yet another wave of it… In an instant, millions of sharp howls rang out in their hearts.
It was as if they were in a distant ancient battlefield with thousands of soldiers and horses around them, as if they were suddenly present in the distant past when the world’s tragic battles in disputes for dominance had raged.
Desolate, tragic, heroic, and dismal.
The demon emperor’s expression changed drastically and just as he was about to let go, he felt a pain in his mind and was sent flying by an attack of huge strength that he was unable to resist. This was a demon beast emperor. A demon beast emperor whose cultivation Ling Chuxi felt was hard to gauge and whose depth of powers was unfathomable. He was actually sent flying without any ability to resist whatsoever.
Although the few people behind the demon emperor did not touch the Cang Yuan Sword, they were still nonetheless shaken into moving backward by the display of its terrifying strength.
Closely after that, a rough shout rang out in their minds and a mighty suppression of heaven and earth was released, putting an end to the sharp howling in the air.
However, Ling Chuxi’s feeling of dread did not get any better. Although it was just an invisible mighty aura, Ling Chuxi found it hard to breathe and her face turned pale. It was as if her entire being would be crushed into dust by the weight of this mighty aura.
Before the demon emperor and the rest of his guards managed to stabilize themselves, their bodies began trembling vigorously and they each spat out a mouthful of blood before falling unconscious at the same time.
As for Young Master Zhen Ye, Xiao Rou, and Big Black Face, they had fallen unconscious long before this had taken place.
Not only them, but all the monster beasts in Little Silver Ancient Mountain had fallen unconscious as well.
