At this moment, Xiang Shaoyun's main body had just streaked past two Devil Sovereigns with his Radiant Saint Sword and sliced them apart from their waists. In anyone's eyes, these Devil Sovereigns were incredibly powerful. But with Xiang Shaoyun's speed and saint weapon, he could slice them up like they were vegetables on a chopping board.
Of the opponents, a certain devil sable had given Xiang Shaoyun some trouble. It was as fast as lightning, and even when using his full strength, Xiang Shaoyun was unable to avoid its pursuit, allowing it to leave numerous bloody scars on his body.
Unless he called his clone over, he would have a hard time killing this particular devil. Ultimately, he was forced to release his Nether Soul Domain to deal with the devil sable.
The much larger group of devils were killed by Xiang Shaoyun's group of 300. Tens of Emperors and Kings on their side had perished during the battle.
Gong Qinyin had suffered some slight injuries as well. Her dao of the zither was unable to pose much threat to the devil puppets. If it wasn't for Xiang Shaoyun's clone protecting her, she might have even gotten herself killed.
Xia Liuhui was having a bad time as well. He might have grown rapidly and was capable of utilizing two powers in battle, but his weakness was a prolonged battle. Because of that, after killing a Devil Emperor, he was relentlessly assaulted by a different Devil Emperor to the point he couldn't even fight back. He looked quite miserable. If it wasn't for the fact that he was quick on his feet, he would have been killed.
As for Tuoba Wan'er, she had only suffered some light injuries. Meanwhile, Ye Chaomu was completely fine. The devils around her seemed to greatly fear her for some reason, and she was able to easily kill them all.
After eliminating the devil army, Xiang Shaoyun's group was greatly exhausted. Fortunately, the Di Sect members were too afraid to leave the formations and face them, or they would have suffered even more.
Xiang Shaoyun's clone returned to his main body, and he rapidly consumed some spirit crystals and herbs to replenish his energy. He had to stay in peak condition at all times. After taking a breather, he rushed toward the Di Sect.
"I'll repeat one more time. Those who surrender will be spared, or don't blame me for slaughtering the entire sect," shouted Xiang Shaoyun.
It no longer mattered to him if Di Batian would survive. He had to retake the sect. This was a desire that had been buried deep in his heart for a very long time. A son should never lose what his father had built.
"Xiang Shaoyun, don't get cocky. My father will be back soon. Just you wait," Di Youguang shouted back.
"Is that so? Fine, I'll just have to kill you before your father returns," said Xiang Shaoyun coldly as he sliced through the formation with his chakram. The chakram was a saint weapon, and it had a special attribute that allowed it to penetrate space. Naturally, it could also slice through formations.
Xiang Shaoyun easily entered the formation, completely stunning Di Youguang and the others. He advanced one step at a time, radiating a thick killing that subjected the Di Sect members to an unbearable pressure. Some of them staggered and collapsed from fear right then and there. It was obvious how much Xiang Shaoyun's presence had matured.
Di Youguang was a Sovereign, but he did not have the courage to face Xiang Shaoyun. He begged for help from First Gold and the other guardians, "Golden Guardians, help me!"
"Not even your father can save you," said Xiang Shaoyun as he attacked.
First Gold shouted, "Xiang Shaoyun, don't be reckless! Do you want Elder Yao and Yao Qian to die as well? Men, bring both of them here!"
Xiang Shaoyun frowned. He knew about Elder Yao's imprisonment, but in order to sabotage the formations, he hadn't been able to get in contact with them. And that tiny negligence placed the two in danger.
"That's right. Bring them here. Also, bring those people in the prison here as well. They are all Xiang Yangzhan loyalists," shouted Di Youguang in joy.
Are there actually other survivors? wondered Xiang Shaoyun in surprise.
Back then when Di Batian had betrayed them, he had watched the loyalists die one after another with his own eyes. He was forced to leave the sect, and he had no idea if there were any survivors among the loyalists.
Soon, someone brought Elder Yao and Yao Qian over.
When Xiang Shaoyun saw them this time, he felt an entirely different emotion than when he saw them earlier. This time, he was revealed before them, and they could see each other.
"Young master!" Yao Qian exclaimed when she saw Xiang Shaoyun, and tears started dripping down from her eyes.
She had liked him since childhood. Back then, she had only looked ordinary and failed to catch Xiang Shaoyun's eyes. He had always treated her like a maid. And since she knew that she could only live to 18, she had never hoped for more either. After Xiang Shaoyun went missing, every day felt like a year. She longed greatly to meet him once again and to confess her feelings to him.
And now, Xiang Shaoyun had reappeared before her. He looked even more handsome and extraordinary than before, and he was now a much more outstanding individual. Her heart was filled with affection, and as far as she was concerned, she would have no regrets even if she were to die right this moment after getting one last look at him.
Elder Yao shivered slightly as he said, "Young master, you shouldn't have returned so quickly."
Xiang Shaoyun looked at the two and said, "Grandpa Yao, Little Qian, don't worry. I will save all of you."
"Xiang Shaoyun, don't do anything stupid. I can easily kill the two of them," threatened Di Youguang as he hid behind Elder Yao and Yao Qian.
"Xiang Shaoyun, if you dare to do anything, they will die as well," said First Gold as he pointed in a certain direction.
As he said that, a few unkempt prisoners were brought out. Their auras were extremely weak. With their messy hair and the dirt all over their bodies, it was hard for one to see their actual appearances. Even with his superb eyesight, Xiang Shaoyun was unable to immediately recognize who they were. However, he had a vague feeling that they were all Ziling Sect loyalists.
"Raise your heads. Your trash young master is back to visit you," berated First Gold.
They raised their heads and revealed their eyes, which were devoid of emotion. Only when their gazes landed on Xiang Shaoyun did some splendor return to their eyes.
"Y-Young master?" called one of them weakly with a hoarse voice.
Xiang Shaoyun tried to see who it was, but the person's face was deformed, so he couldn't see who it was. It greatly saddened Xiang Shaoyun, and he asked, "Which uncle is this?"
"Haha, it's really the young master. I'm your Third Uncle Pang," he said, howling in laughter.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
