That burst of energy was too terrifying, properly displaying the might of a saint weapon. Xiang Shaoyun had almost emptied his dark star in this attack. He had a feeling that this sword was more than just a saint weapon. After all, he was someone who had used saint weapons before. It was certain that using saint weapons would exhaust a lot of energy, but with his strength, a single swing shouldn't have emptied his star of energy.
In fact, he himself was shocked by the might of that attack, and the attack seemed capable of threatening even Saints. Behind Xiang Shaoyun, the taurus was so shocked all his hair stood on end. He started madly running away.
An expert like this was not someone he could afford to provoke. Xiang Shaoyun also didn't dare to stay long. His attack would definitely alarm the Saint Realm experts in the city. It would be unwise to stay. He started running madly behind the Taurus, not wasting even a single second.
After an unknown amount of time, the taurus charged into a forest and withdrew his aura. He also turned back into his human form and consumed herbs to recover from his injuries. He felt that he had escaped danger. Since he couldn't sense anyone chasing after him, he could finally take a breather.
Just as he was about to enter meditation, a voice rang out, "It's rather improper of you to abandon your benefactor like this, right?"
"W-who are you?" the taurus flinched and nearly fell to the ground.
The concealed person who had saved him earlier was too strong. If he really wanted to harm him, the taurus would be dead by now.
"I just helped you not long ago, and you're asking me who I am?" Xiang Shaoyun replied.
The taurus swallowed and said, "B-benefactor, what do you want? If you want the gold lunar liquid, I can give it to you."
He then took out the gold lunar liquid. He no longer dared to keep it on him. He knew that when facing an expert he couldn't even sense, all tricks were worthless. Moreover, that expert had been able to tail him all the way here and had most likely come for his gold lunar liquid.
Compared to his life, the gold lunar liquid was nothing. This was unlike when he was in the city and still had a chance to escape. Against this unknown person, he could only concede.
"Why would I even want your gold lunar liquid?" Xiang Shaoyun asked, left somewhat speechless by the taurus' response.
The gold lunar liquid was something he sold, but it seemed like it was going to return to him easily.
"W-what do you want, then?" asked the taurus, who felt like crying.
"Follow me. I have even better treasures that can help you enter the Demon Saint realm faster," said Xiang Shaoyun.
"Are you telling the truth?" the taurus exclaimed in alarm.
He wondered if the heavens were bestowing him with great luck for something like this to happen.
"Of course. Why would I lie to a stupid cow like you?" said Xiang Shaoyun.
The Ziling Sect was currently growing. Any expert recruited would be helpful. He did not mind taking in this taurus as his follower. He would have him join the turtle and the toad to become the sect's three Demon Saint guardians.
"Forget it. I'm not interested in being someone's mount," said the taurus after calming himself.
He knew that the moment he accepted this offer, he would lose his freedom.
"Think it through. You have no other options. If you refuse, you can join them in the afterlife," said Xiang Shaoyun with a firm look.
His words frightened the taurus. The taurus trembled and pleaded, "Lord, please spare me. I can give you all the gold lunar liquid. I have some other treasures on me I can give you as well."
"By killing you, everything on you will be mine anyway," said Xiang Shaoyun murderously.
When the taurus sensed Xiang Shaoyun's killing intent, he started shivering.
"You really think I wouldn't dare to do anything to you?" said Xiang Shaoyun coldly. The Extreme Chill Curved Sword appeared in his hand again. Dark energy surged out of the sword; the energy was dense enough that even the taurus could sense it.
The taurus' willpower collapsed. He had personally witnessed this sword killing an ironwing with the same cultivation realm as him.
"It's the Extreme Chill Curved Sword!" the taurus exclaimed in alarm.
As he said that, Xiang Shaoyun approached him like a specter and stabbed the sword forward.
The taurus was incredibly frightened. When he saw that Xiang Shaoyun was really attacking, he hurriedly shouted, "Don't kill me! I'm willing to follow you!"
This was a threat of death. He couldn't waste any time, or he would really lose his life. It hadn't been easy for him to cultivate to this point and reach a level where he could attempt to enter the Demon Saint realm. How would he be willing to die just like this?
Xiang Shaoyun stopped his attack and revealed himself. He looked at the taurus coldly and said, "By following me, you will only grow stronger. Otherwise, I can kill you as easily as killing a chicken."
The taurus had not imagined that the lord would actually be someone so young. Moreover, the lord was a human whose cultivation didn't feel oppressive. Was this merely a charlatan? But it was undeniable that this lord was the one who had killed the two ironwing experts. He decided not to think about it anymore. It was not like he had any other choices.
"This bull is willing to follow you, master," said the taurus with his head lowered.
"Focus on healing. I'll stand guard for you," said Xiang Shaoyun with an amicable tone. He was overjoyed to see the taurus submit.
The taurus heaved a breath of relief. He could finally focus on healing.
Xiang Shaoyun did as he said and paid attention to any experts that might come.
After about two hours, when Xiang Shaoyun confirmed that no ironwing experts were coming, he relaxed his vigilance.
How did a great city like Getian City end up occupied by those foreigners? There must be a reason, thought Xiang Shaoyun.
After the taurus made some recovery, he urged the taurus to continue traveling. They should prioritize getting far away from Getian City. After traveling for two days, they finally stopped at a place with verdant hills and limpid water.
The taurus continued to recover while Xiang Shaoyun released the angels and Hu Meihui. When they came out, they found that they had really left Getian City. They were incomparably astonished.
"We left the city so easily?" Pudi was shocked.
"Probably. This place doesn't seem like it's in the city," replied an angel.
"Don't worry. We are now far away from Getian City. Of course, I don't know where we are. We can figure that out when we find an inhabited place nearby," said Xiang Shaoyun. He looked at Hu Meihui and said, "I have fulfilled my promise to you, princess. You can leave safely."Previous Chapter Next Chapter
