"Devouring Ghost, you know of a way to save him?" asked the anxious Xiang Shaoyun.
"It's very simple. Just feed him with some of your soul spring water and allow him to recover his soul. Then use a king medicine capable of reconnecting his meridians, and he will be as good as new," said Devouring Ghost.
"True! My soul spring can heal souls. It will definitely be helpful for Elder Zhen Peng," said Xiang Shaoyun.
"Young master, you have soul spring water on you?" asked Duo Ji in astonishment.
The soul spring was classified as a king spring. Not only could it help one enter the Skysoar Realm, it could also increase the soul power of one in the Skysoar Realm. Naturally, it could also restore an injured soul. Very few items were effective in healing souls, and soul spring was one of them. Duo Ji was unaware that Xiang Shaoyun had such a treasure on him.
"Yes. I'll first restore Elder Zhen Peng's consciousness," said Xiang Shaoyun, and he started feeding Elder Zhen Peng the soul spring.
At this time, Duo Ji offered, "I have a millennia king spring here. Using two king springs together will be very beneficial for him."
Xiang Shaoyun accepted the millennia king spring with no hesitation and fed it to Elder Zhen Peng as well. Even after consuming the two king springs, it was impossible for Elder Zhen Peng to wake up immediately. His injuries were too severe, and he would only wake up after the two spring waters had some time to work on him.
"Let's leave for now," said Xiang Shaoyun after sensing that the two spring waters were working on healing Elder Zhen Peng.
"Guardian Duo Ji, do you have any king medicines capable of restoring meridians?" asked Xiang Shaoyun after they left the room.
Duo Ji answered, "I have a snakering vine, but I'm afraid it will only be slightly useful for restoring meridians."
Xiang Shaoyun was disappointed. He looked at Devouring Ghost and asked, "Does Linggu Haonan have anything useful?"
"He did, but I had used them all up when fusing with this body," said Devouring Ghost with a shrug, leaving Xiang Shaoyun speechless.
"The best king medicine for restoring meridians is the clearmoon vine. It isn't even a rare medicine, but I don't know if you can find one here in this tiny city," said Devouring Ghost.
"No matter what, we have to find one," said Xiang Shaoyun.
Thus, he asked the Thirteen Eagles if they had any. Unfortunately, none of them had one. He also asked Chen Jiayan, but the Chen Clan only had a less effective king medicine that was only slightly useful for restoring meridians. Xiang Shaoyun did not accept the medicine as it wouldn't be very helpful anyway.
"Young Master Xiang, in truth, the Cloud Margin Pavilion has a stalk of clearmoon vine. Do you want me to request it on your behalf? I believe they would be willing to hand it over out of respect for me," said Chen Jiayan.
"Oh? They have one?" Xiang Shaoyun was overjoyed.
"Yes, it's in Yue Yuze's possession. He's the current pavilion master of Cloud Margin Pavilion," said Chen Jiayan.
"Good, I'll go get it myself, then," said Xiang Shaoyun in excitement.
"There is no rush, Young Master Xiang. Do you want me to go with you?" offered Chen Jiayan.
Xiang Shaoyun waved his hand. "It's fine. I know the Cloud Margin Pavilion quite well myself."
"Sure. Anyway, Zilong is returning to the Cloud Margin Pavilion as well. Maybe the two of you can go together? Oh, Du Xuanhao the Saber Emperor is also at the Cloud Margin Pavilion," said Chen Jiayan.
Xiang Shaoyun agreed without any hesitation, "Sure, Zilong can come with me."
Chen Jiayan was overjoyed. "Ok. I'll call him over right now!"
Soon, Chen Zilong arrived with Chen Jiayan. There was a complicated expression on his face when he saw Xiang Shaoyun. He used to always have a sense of superiority over Xiang Shaoyun, but now, that feeling was long gone.
After witnessing how Xiang Shaoyun had defeated Wu Longfei and Devil Fairy, his attitude toward Xiang Shaoyun had shifted. And after the appearance of Ye Chaomu and Duo Ji, his sense of superiority was no more. Still, he had a lofty and unyielding character and would not bend his knees before Xiang Shaoyun.
"You are incomparable to your sister," said Chen Zilong the moment he saw Xiang Shaoyun, frightening Chen Jiayan into quickly berating him.
"Zilong, what nonsense are you speaking?"
Chen Jiayan knew very well all the experts were here for Xiang Shaoyun. If they offended Xiang Shaoyun, he could destroy the entire Chen Clan at any time.
Xiang Shaoyun waved his hand and smiled. "Haha, Brother Zilong is right. I am indeed incomparable to my sister. Growing up, she has always been the one to bully me."
Chen Jiayan heaved a sigh of relief when he saw that Xiang Shaoyun was not angered. He quickly hinted at Chen Zilong with his eyes, reminding the young man to no longer talk nonsense.
But Chen Zilong completely ignored him and said, "After we become Kings, I will battle you."
"Haha, if you want, I don't mind fighting right now," said Xiang Shaoyun with a laugh.
"No, I'm not your match right now. We will fight after we become Kings," said Chen Zilong.
"Shrinking before fighting? That's not like you at all," said Xiang Shaoyun in astonishment.
This was not the first time he had met Chen Zilong, and he knew he was a battle fanatic. Chen Zilong was not one to easily concede, and it was truly surprising that those words were coming out of his mouth.
"You were able to defeat Wu Longfei and Devil Fairy alone. I can't do the same," said Chen Zilong forthrightly.
"Sure, we will fight when we become Kings," said Xiang Shaoyun. He then said, "Let's go. I need to go to the Cloud Margin Pavilion."
Chen Zilong did not reject the invitation and went together with him. Chen Jiayan also offered to send them there on a mount, but Xiang Shaoyun rejected the offer.
"Jin Wo, I'll be troubling you," said Xiang Shaoyun.
"No trouble at all, that is my duty," said Jin Wo before transforming back to his original form.
A gold serpentine crocodile several dozen meters long appeared before Chen Jiayan and Chen Zilong, giving the two a fright. Chen Jiayan was a late-stage Emperor who had witnessed a lot of things. However, he couldn't help but be astonished to see a Demon Emperor right before his eyes.
Inwardly, he thought to himself, This Xiang Shaoyun's background is way too scary. This will be a great chance for the Chen Clan to rise!
The gold serpentine crocodile's head was raised proudly. His body was robust and sturdy, his scales looking as tough as steel, giving off a dreadful and oppressive sensation at all times.
Xiang Shaoyun took the lead to hop on the back of Jin Wo before inviting Chen Zilong up, "Come on up."
Chen Zilong composed himself before hopping onto the gold serpentine crocodile's back as well. Then, they flew toward Cloud Margin Pavilion. Jin Wo moved extremely quickly and was able to instantly reach high up in the sky before anyone in the Chen Clan could even notice that a massive beast had just flown out of their estate.
Xiang Shaoyun had expected that the trip to the Cloud Margin Pavilion would be smooth, but trouble had still arrived.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
