"For this Devil Hunting Expedition, the Yu Clan has announced that the one who takes first place will become their son-in-law," said Tang Longfei as he looked at Xiang Shaoyun with a ruminating expression.
"They're messing around again?" said Xiang Shaoyun with a frown.
He remembered how they had released the same announcement at Bloodsin City in the past. Because of that, he had to compete against a group of people. But after the incident, the Yu Clan didn't even acknowledge the entire incident.
And now, they were doing the same. It was unknown if they were serious this time, but Xiang Shaoyun felt rather disgusted by their actions.
"It's different this time. A big shot from the Yu Clan had announced it personally. However, the Yu Clan is prosperous with a large number of female clan members. So nobody knows which of their clan members would be wed for this. However, one thing we know for sure is that the woman in question has a rather unique status in the clan, or they wouldn't have dared to make such an announcement," said Tang Longfei.
"Those old bastards from the Yu Clan have always liked buying people's hearts with tricks like this," said Xiang Shaoyun. "Fine, I'll go with you. My hands have been getting itchy anyway."
The woman he loved most was Yu Caidie. She was also the reincarnation of the woman he loved most in his previous life, which he had realized based on his instincts alone. He wouldn't let her marry anyone else.
After hearing about the expedition from Tang Longfei, he was sure that Yu Caidie would also take part in it. In that case, he might as well use this opportunity to take her back into his fold. As for what the Yu Clan would think about his actions, he would just face it when it came.
In truth, he did not have a good opinion of the Yu Clan. In his past life, they had also tried to stop him from being together with Yu Caidie. If it wasn't for the fact that he was strong to the point they feared him, they wouldn't have let him and Yu Caidie be together in the first place.
During his final battle with the eight super organizations, the Yu Clan had even severed their relationship with the Xiang Clan. Yu Caidie was abandoned, and Xiang Dingtian ultimately perished due to a lack of help.
From all that, one could see that the Yu Clan was very pragmatic. However, there was no denying that it was a powerful clan no weaker than the previous Xiang Clan. However, the Yu Clan enjoyed changing their positions constantly and had no ambition to dominate the Western Desert. If they had the ambition, they would have already lorded over the Western Desert.
"Haha, I knew you would fight alongside us, with your sense of duty," said Tang Longfei with a hearty laugh.
"I doubt I can move alongside you guys even if I join the expedition. Isn't that right?" asked Xiang Shaoyun.
Shang Jifeng finally found the chance to speak and said, "Not at all. The academy will not restrict us this time. We only need to focus on killing devils and obtaining the devilsand."
"That's right. With the Overlord by our side, the Overlord Legion will be unequaled!" said Pan Yun.
"Overlord, don't tell me you're worried we will be a burden?" said Shou Xie.
"I am most certainly more than happy to fight alongside my brothers and sisters. How would I even think of you guys as burdens?" said Xiang Shaoyun with a smile. "When will it start exactly? I need to tie up all the loose ends here in the sect before I set off."
"We still have plenty of time. Go handle your business. We can stay here for a few days while you finish up," said Tang Longfei.
"Good. Spend some time here and let me be a proper host," agreed Xiang Shaoyun.
With that, the Overlord Legion settled down in the Ziling Sect. As for the people from the city hall, they came with some gifts on Tang Zhan's behalf as an apology. Xiang Shaoyun felt somewhat embarrassed, thinking, I need to give Uncle Tang a proper apology when I return to Bloodsin City.
That was only right. Tang Zhan had helped him sincerely back then, but he had yet to return to Bloodsin City. And now, Tang Zhan even had some people bring gifts as a sign of apology. That wasn't right.
Because they had been separated for several years, Xiang Shaoyun proceeded to catch up and drink with the members of the Overlord Legion. Lady Shura, in particular, had deep emotions in her eyes. After the banquet, Xiang Shaoyun kept Lady Shura behind and took off her mask.
An enchanting face appeared before his eyes. Her twinkling eyes, sleek face, and tender lips were wildly alluring. She had become even more beautiful than before.
"Overlord," Lady Shura called out shyly.
Xiang Shaoyun did not say anything and replied with action. He planted a kiss on her lips and wrapped his arms tightly around her, greedily taking her in. Lady Shura was thoroughly immersed in his companionship while Xiang Shaoyun fully released his longing for her, making her his.
In the morning, Lady Shura was nestled in Xiang Shaoyun's embrace. She thought, I finally became his woman. I no longer have any regrets in this life.
Xiang Shaoyun noticed that she had awakened and gently held her shoulders as he asked, "Do you regret this?"
"No. Being your woman is the best thing that has ever happened to me," said Lady Shura earnestly.
"Well, you're my woman from now on. Whoever dares to bully you will have his balls smashed by me," declared Xiang Shaoyun overbearingly.
"Nobody can bully me so easily," said Lady Shura confidently.
"I'll give you some help later. You'll be able to break through to eighth-stage Dragon Ascension Realm. Try to reach the Soul Foundation Realm as soon as possible, or your strength won't be enough," said Xiang Shaoyun.
"I'll listen to you," she said. "Overlord, have you reached the Soul Foundation Realm?"
"Without being in the Soul Foundation Realm, how can I even lead an entire sect? Nobody will acknowledge my leadership otherwise. My next goal is to enter the Heaven Battling Realm as quickly as possible. Only then would I be able to preserve my status even in the entirety of the dominion," said Xiang Shaoyun.
"You're amazing, Overlord. The academy's strongest geniuses are forming their soul foundations to enter the Soul Foundation Realm, but I can feel the big gap between them and you," said Lady Shura proudly.
"Let's stop talking about that. Is your sect master aware that you're here?" asked Xiang Shaoyun.
"Yes. He had me send his regards to you," replied Lady Shura.
"Heh, his perspective is too shallow and can only be limited to a single city," said Xiang Shaoyun mockingly.
Lady Shura couldn't understand why Xiang Shaoyun was saying that, but she tactfully kept her mouth shut.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
