Even the mighty Green Ghost had a look of fear on his face when he spoke the name "Lord Xiang". It was obvious how deep of an impact this "Lord Xiang" had on him. But he recovered quickly. He said, "No, you're not him. Are you his descendant?"
Xiang Shaoyun was too weak to say anything, so he shut his eyes and started circulating his cultivation method to heal himself. He wanted to use a drop of lightning liquid to heal up, but decided against it after some thought. This madman before him was too unpredictable.
When Green Ghost saw that Xiang Shaoyun was not replying, he immediately sensed Xiang Shaoyun's current condition. His emotions turned complicated as he looked at Lady Shura and said, "Lady Shura, give him a life return pill and a drop of spirit spring on my behalf to help him recover."
"Yes, sect master." Lady Shura did not dare to wait and quickly took out a pill and a drop of spirit spring water from her storage ring. She then walked toward Xiang Shaoyun.
She helped him up and fed him both items. At such close distance, her pleasant fragrance drifted into Xiang Shaoyun's nose, causing his heart to flutter slightly. He also came to a realization that the danger was now over and that his life was no longer in danger.
He couldn't be bothered to think about anything else as he quickly utilized the power of the pill and spirit spring to heal his wounds. He had only become slightly better by the time Green Ghost grew impatient and asked, "Tell me. Who are you? Where is my master? I don't have much time left!"
It was quite obvious Green Ghost was quite anxious. It was probably because he couldn't maintain his clone for long, or perhaps something else was happening where his main body was.
Xiang Shaoyun decided to start talking. He opened his eyes and said, "I am Xiang Shaoyun. Devouring Ghost is in seclusion to regain his strength, so he won't be able to show himself for now. He will probably be out in about half a year to a year. He is already in the city, and he was the one who had given me this medal."
"The master is back?" Green Ghost exclaimed joyfully. "What is your relationship with him?"
"I am the one who helped free him," Xiang Shaoyun replied. He chose to not tell Green Ghost that Devouring Ghost was now his follower. He was afraid Green Ghost would not be able to accept it and attack him again in agitation.
"Good, very good! Lady Shura, before I return from the Devil Domain, he will be the honored guest of our Ghostface Sect. Take good care of him in the Bloodsin City. Agree to all his requests. We will decide what to do when I'm back," said Ghostface Sect before he vanished into thin air.
"Yes, sect master," Lady Shura answered deferentially.
At this point, Lady Shura was already thoroughly shocked. She had never expected that Xiang Shaoyun, a young man, would actually be related to her sect master's master. No wonder he could take out the sect master's medal.
After Green Ghost left, Xiang Shaoyun ignored Lady Shura and sat down in meditation to continue healing up. He still wasn't using the lightning liquid. He did not need to waste a drop since the life return pill and some other spirit medicines were enough for him to recover.
At the depths of the Devil Domain was a certain place filled with devilish energy. Devilish beasts roamed the land, and each of them was extremely powerful. None was weaker than a Devil Emperor, and even Devil Sovereigns could be seen.
There were barely any humans here, but in a certain dangerous area was a man with a green ghostface mask. A large amount of devilish energy was surrounding him, and he was currently consuming the blood of a devil he had just killed. As he did that, his vitality surged.
Evidently, this was Green Ghost's main body. He had been seriously injured and was currently devouring the blood of a devil to replenish his own vitality and recover from his wounds.
He suddenly opened his crimson eyes and muttered, "Master is still alive. I need to quickly return to the Bloodsin City. But master actually needed the help of a puny King to help break him free? Is that true? He is definitely in bad shape. I shall get the body of a Devil Saint as a gift for master."
At that thought, he increased the speed at which he was absorbing the blood to accelerate his recovery.
About four hours later, Xiang Shaoyun finally woke up from his meditation. He had recovered much of his injuries. To the side, Lady Shura spoke respectfully, "Please accept my apologies for offending you before, Young Master Xiang."
Lady Shura had a high status in the Ghostface Sect and could be considered one of the sect's seeded geniuses. Even so, she did not dare to slight an honored guest of the sect master.
Xiang Shaoyun stood up, waved his hand and said, "It's fine. Everything has been cleared up now. But you still need to give me some compensation."
"What do you want, Young Master Xiang?" asked Lady Shura with a slight astonishment. She found it hard to believe that Xiang Shaoyun had just been roughed up by their sect master and that he was already blackmailing her so soon.
A crafty look appeared on Xiang Shaoyun's face as he said, "How about you take your mask off and show me your face?"
"What? A-are you serious?" Lady Shura cried out in agitation.
"Why? What's so difficult about that? Are you too ashamed to show your face?" Xiang Shaoyun asked.
Lady Shura was a woman constantly radiating a sex appeal, giving one an urge to conquer her. That was why Xiang Shaoyun wanted to take a look at her actual face. But he was completely unaware of the responsibility he had to bear after seeing the face behind the mask.
Lady Shura narrowed her eyes and stared at Xiang Shaoyun for a bit before resolutely taking her mask off. Xiang Shaoyun was stunned. A tanned face was revealed before him, showing a pair of eyes with single eyelids. Her hair was draping gracefully behind her earlobes. Nose tall, lips thick, her facial features were in complete symmetry. If she did not have such thick lips to go with her tall nose, she wouldn't look as good.
Her face wasn't exactly flawless or fair, but what she had combined with her alluring figure presented a wild and exotic kind of beauty. Xiang Shaoyun had seen a lot of beauties, but this was his first time seeing a woman with this kind of beauty. He felt his blood boiling in excitement, an urge to conquer her rising up within him. It was pure lust, not admiration or love.
"Are you done staring?" asked Lady Shura calmly.
Only then did Xiang Shaoyun recover his calm. He said, "So beautiful. So tasteful."
Lady Shura put her mask back on and spoke softly, "The sect has a rule that those who have seen my face will either die or be my man, becoming a member of the sect. Since you are an honored guest of the sect, I can't kill you. So my only option now is to kill myself." A dagger appeared in her hand, and she swept it toward her own neck.
"Wait! You can be my woman!" Xiang Shaoyun cried out.
"Your cultivation level is far lower than mine. You are not the kind of man I want," Lady Shura rejected straightforwardly.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
