Chapter 1601: Dream?

Bright stars changed their positions repeatedly in mysterious tracks.

Once these stars moved out of their original positions, they would morph into layers of illusory formations.

Floating among the stars, Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory felt that each star was tremendously huge. The starlight they emanated was so dazzling that it stung his eyes.

The stars were clearly very close to him, but he couldn’t tell where they were exactly.

It seemed that his demon soul had been blinded, and he couldn’t sense anything in the Sea of Illusory Stars.

“It’s only the Sea of Illusory Stars of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace,” Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory thought, frowning.

His deep black flesh aura surged out of his nose. His ten-thousand-meter-high demon body was bombed repeatedly by Nie Tian, who was nowhere to be found.

Also, he was scalded by waterfalls of flame and shot by streaks of stars from time to time.

The scariest thing was the Rampage Behemoth bone. Every time it passed by Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory, it would leave a deep wound in his body.

If it weren’t for his strong Indestructible Form and amazing self-healing ability, he would have been badly injured long ago.

His growl resounded in the Sea of Illusory Stars, which seemed to make the stars almost collapse. “Nie Tian! Do you dare show yourself and face me?”

Suddenly, he was surprised to smell wisps of demon Qi slipping in from outside the Sea of Illusory Stars. “Eeeh!”

He froze for a moment, and then suddenly came to his senses, “I can’t believe that we’ve come to the Demon realms somehow. Which Demon realm is this?”

He speculated that Nie Tian feared that their battle would affect the human realms around the Realm of Middle Continent, so he took great pains to secretly take him to the Demon realms of the Demons.

Here, he could fight with no scruples. He wouldn’t care even if they blew up the Demon realms.

SWISH!

The bright stars suddenly disappeared one by one, fusing into the Heavenly Stars Flower.

The Sea of Illusory Stars spell that Nie Tian had displayed was instantly canceled. Having hidden in the dark for a long time, he handsomely emerged in front of Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory, pointed at a purple glowing sphere not far away, and said, “The Sixth Demon Realm.”

Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory turned his head around, and found that the purple glowing sphere was indeed the Sixth Demon Realm.

The Demon realms and the Realm of Middle Continent were separated by a boundless starry river. How did Nie Tian get him here?

Unless he had been stuck in the Sea of Illusory Stars for a long time, and it had even been clouding the passing of time.

Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory was suddenly uneasy.

The Sixth Demon Realm was ruled by the Astarte Clan. One of Dong Li’s dark stones was from here, where it had made one of the Astarte Clan’s ancestors, Grand Monarch Utter Darkness.

Of course, Grand Monarch Utter Darkness of the Demons was no match for the Dark King of the Void World.

Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory was a little confused. “Why did you use the Sea of Illusory Stars of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace to bring me here? You’ve invaded the Sixth Demon Realm, plundered it, and massacred all the local Demon clans. You’ve even stolen the Astarte Clan’s prized dark stone. What do you want by coming to the Sixth Demon Realm now?”

RUMBLE!

Suddenly, three deep purple ancient starships sailed from near the Sixth Demon Realm, giving rise to loud rumbles.

It was clear that the three ancient starships belonged to the Demons, with a number of seventh and eighth grade Demons onboard.

Several soldiers on the Demons starships spotted Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory’s huge body and recognized him immediately. “Grand, Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory!”

They were instantly excited. “Your Excellency, why are you in the Sixth Demon Realm? We’re members of the Lancelot Clan of the Sixth Demon Realm. We’re responsible for collecting and transporting the rare demon stones and insects in the surrounding small realms. We...”

“Go back to the Sixth Demon Realm!” Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory shouted.

Seeing his pale face, the Demons on the three starships were frightened. They observed carefully, and finally saw Nie Tian, who looked extremely small compared to him.

One clansman of the Lancelot Clan recognized Nie Tian. “A human! It’s Nie Tian!”

Then, the three demon starships didn’t dare to stay any longer, but fled at full speed towards the Sixth Demon Realm.

Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory’s flesh aura surged as he readied himself, wanting to prevent Nie Tian from killing them.

However, Nie Tian did nothing.

“Those kinds of Demons warriors don’t spark my interest anymore,” Nie Tian said with a smile. “I only kill those who are at the ninth-grade or higher now.”

“You haven’t answered me. Why have you secretly brought me to the Sixth Demon Realm?” Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory asked with a cold face. “Do you think you can threaten me with the death of my clansmen in the Sixth Demon Realm? To tell you the truth, all of our truly gifted and talented clansmen have evacuated from the Spirit World.

“Those who carry the purest bloodlines have been sent to the Devils in the Void World. The others have established footholds in the Mortal World.”

Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory continued, “Those who are still in the Demon realms are those whose bloodlines have no potential for advancing. They only stay to gather the things that our race has left behind.”

“Now that you’re a tenth-grade grand monarch and your bloodline imprints have been awakened, you should know that the original birthplace of the Demons isn’t really the first or second Demon realms,” Nie Tian said, grinned and pointed at the purple glowing sphere again. “The Sixth Demon Realm is the weakest among the six Demon realms.

“However, the truth is that the Demons gradually explored and occupied the other five Demon realms, while the first Demon realm that was created was the Sixth Demon Realm!”

A strange light flashed in Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory’s eyes as he said, “Who told you that?”

Nie Tian changed the subject by asking, “Do you know why your bloodline was suppressed by Dong Li’s Dark Aureole and dark stones even though you’re a late tenth-grade grand monarch? That’s because the master of the Dark Aureole, the Dark King of the Devils, created your kind.”

“The ancestor of the Demons in the Spirit World and the source of your bloodline is the Dark King of the Devils!” 

Nie Tian’s words were powerful and resonant.

Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory frowned. “So you didn’t go through all that trouble to bring me here to prevent my power from destroying the human realms near the Realm of Middle Continent.”

Nie Tian’s expression instantly became solemn and grave. “Dong Li holds the Dark Aureole, and has merged the dark stones into herself. It’s safe to say that she has obtained the inheritance of the Dark King. Although she doesn’t carry his so-called bloodline, she has actually won the Dark King’s acknowledgment.”

Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory snapped, “Nonsense! The source of my race’s bloodline lies with the Devils of the Void World!”

Nie Tian grinned and said slowly, “To be exact, it’s the Dark King, the paragon of the Devils. Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory, you’re the strongest Demon now. If you are willing to declare that Dong Li has obtained the Dark King’s inheritance, I can spare your life. What do you say?

Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory had a strange look on his face. “Are you dreaming?”

Nie Tian wasn’t angry. “Well, if you’re unwilling, I’ll ask someone else to take your place. In fact, another demon grand monarch from your era is still alive.

“You should know that after he defected, he went to the Doomed Star Sea, where he’s now fighting the three outsider races of the Void World.

“I’m sure he’ll be happy to return to his people and tell them that Dong Li has been acknowledged by Dark King and comprehended the original power of the source of darkness.”

Hearing this, Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory’s expression instantly changed.
