Chapter 93: The Seven Great Sages of the Demon Path
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
After Lin Jiufeng defeated a demon, he received the Sword Driving Technique and left happily.
But the demons in the demon’s den remained depressed.
The demon that was defeated just now was none other than Demon King Pingtian.
Why did a demon say that Lin Jiufeng had become stronger?
It was because Lin Jiufeng had just lightly pressed down with his palm and this simple attack of his severely injured Demon King Pingtian in an instant.
Demon King Pingtian was one of the founders of this demon’s den and he was also one of the Seven Great Sages of the Monster and Demon Race.
His strength was at the peak among those that were here.
Moreover, his true form was that of a Tauren.
His skin was rough and his flesh was thick.
He was very resistant to punches.
Even though he was currently weak due to his long hibernation, those of the Grotto-Heaven Realm were definitely unable to severely injure him with a simple palm.
Not even those at the peak of the Grotto-Heaven Realm could do so.
But Lin Jiufeng managed to do it.
This was something that they were unwilling to see.
Because this indicated that Lin Jiufeng had become stronger once more.
They watched as Lin Jiufeng became stronger every day, but none of them could improve at all.
The demons had been thoroughly tormented in the years that passed.
Back then, they were the ones who tormented others.
But now, it was the opposite.
This truly was the work of karma.
Demon King Pingtian got up and wiped the blood from the corner of his mouth. He didn’t feel too bad about being injured. When he was roaming the world back then, he had been injured countless times. But each time, he relied on his tough skin and thick flesh to endure through it.
Moreover, because of his special physique, there wouldn’t be any hidden injuries after his injuries healed.
Of course, despite his resilience, his mental state was the opposite.
Right now, he was depressed.
Raising his head in dejection, he asked softly, “Are there still any chances for us, the demons who have stirred up trouble and turned the world upside down back then, to leave this place?”
This question rendered the group of demons speechless.
Lin Jiufeng was just too terrifying.
The 10 years had left a deep shadow in their hearts.
One must know that they were powerful demons—the powerful demons that once ruled over their own regions.
Lin Jiufeng didn’t know what these demons were thinking.
After signing in successfully, he left the underground palace and went to his courtyard to silently comprehend the Sword Driving Technique.
He didn’t want to think about the disturbances in the outside world.
In the Great Council Hall, a group of court officials was arguing about the current state of the world. Demons had once again came out to stir up trouble, and the common people were living in unspeakable misery.
They had to be stopped at all costs.
But some people also said that the powerhouses sent by the Yuhua God Dynasty had all died while bleeding from their seven orifices. There were no traces of them being injured anywhere else, which was very strange.
This alone proved that the demons this time were truly powerful.
“Your Majesty. In today’s world, demons are rampant. Not only are there demons, but there are also monsters. It is rumored that the so-called Seven Great Sages of the Monster and Demon Race have appeared…”
“They are the main troublemakers that we are facing right now,” The Cabinet Chief said.
Since Emperor Yuan’s ascension to the throne, he was promoted to the Cabinet.
Until now, this Cabinet Chief was still around.
He had dedicated his entire life to the Imperial Court and had no male descendants to succeed in his position. His daughter was also already married, so he had his heart set on serving the Yuhua God Dynasty.
He was 80 years old this year, but was still energetic and had a clear mind.
In fact, he was becoming more and more cunning as he aged.
Although his cultivation base wasn’t strong, his knowledge was as deep as the sea.
With a scheme, he could make two powerful cultivators fall out with each other and become enemies.
He was also the one who taught Emperor De about how to handle the state affairs.
Hence, Emperor De trusted him a lot.
“Teacher… What’s the situation with the Seven Great Sages that you mentioned?”
Emperor De frowned and asked in a low voice.
The demonic sects’ comeback was already causing him endless worries.
Now, the so-called Seven Great Sages of the Monster and Demon Race had also appeared.
Emperor De immediately guessed that they must be demons from the previous era that had sealed themselves and finally awakened in this brand new era.
Emperor De gnashed his teeth in anger.
It wasn’t enough for them to rule over one entire era, they still wanted to rule over this era and harm the common people.
“Your Majesty, I believe that there’s no need to bother the demonic sects’ in their comeback because they aren’t the main troublemakers this time,” The Cabinet Chief replied firmly.
He was already so old. His face was thin and so was his aura.
But standing there, his back remained straight.
A single look was all it took for anyone to tell that he had been a scholar in his entire life.
Not only that, but he was a model example of scholars!
This was the best description of him.
“Teacher, who are these Seven Great Sages?” Emperor De asked curiously.
“They are the Great Sage of the Ocean Cover, Demon King Jiao. Great Sage of the Chaotic Heavens, Demon King Dapeng. Great Sage of the Moving Mountain, Demon King Gui. Great Sage of the Blowing Wind, Demon King Yuan. Great Sage of the White Clothed, Bai Zilong. Great Sage of the Dreaming, Yun Shanhai.”
The Cabinet Chief explained one by one.
Emperor De counted carefully and frowned. “That’s not right…”
“There are only six Great Sages here.”
The Cabinet Chief shook his head and said, “I was also puzzled at the beginning as to why there were only six demons among the Seven Great Sages. But later on, someone found out that the Great Sage of the Heaven Leveling, the Heaven Raising Bull, is still missing.”
“Are they very powerful?” Emperor De asked solemnly.
The Cabinet Chief replied solemnly, “Their cultivation bases are all beyond the Human God Realm. Moreover, the Great Sage of the Ocean Cover, Demon King Jiao, and the Great Sage of the Chaotic Heavens, Demon King Dapeng both said that they would come to the Imperial Capital to ask His Majesty for a piece of land to build a place for the Demon Race to live in.”
“If we don’t give in to their demands, they will replace us with another dynasty.”
“What daring of them to threaten me?!” Emperor De stood up angrily.
“Your Majesty, they are beyond the Human God Realm. The Human Gods that we have nurtured for the past ten years are nothing compared to these Great Sages.” The Cabinet Chief shook his head.
Emperor De was speechless.
“Will they be here soon?” Emperor De asked through gritted teeth.
“Yes. During this period of time, I will discuss with the court officials in detail as to which piece of land we should give them. Your Majesty, please bear with it.”
The Cabinet Chief bowed and proposed a solution.
Emperor De opened his mouth, wanting to say that he didn’t agree to it.
He hadn’t fought a single war yet, but he was already going to lose a huge chunk of the land that his ancestors left behind for him. If he truly lost in this manner, then he would be scolded as an incapable emperor throughout his reign.
But looking at the Cabinet Chief’s thin face, it was obvious that he was worried sick over this matter.
Emperor De could only agree, afraid of the Cabinet Chief’s health.
“Thank you, Teacher.”
“Your Majesty, I am gratified that you are able to think it through.”
The Cabinet Chief left in satisfaction and went down to start his research.
Even if they were to give the demons a piece of land, there would still be some considerations that had to be taken into account.
He could use the giving of land as a scheme to get rid of some enemies.
If he really wanted these Seven Great Sages to suffer, it would take some time to devise a plan.
Emperor De felt aggrieved after the Cabinet Chief’s departure.
He was the Emperor, but he was being threatened by mere demons.
And in the end, he had no choice but to compromise?
In Emperor De’s eyes, agreeing to the demons’ request was akin to sacrificing land to seek peace.
This was betraying the lands of his ancestors for the sake of his own peace and stability.
“If I can agree once, then I can agree a second time, a third time… countless times.”
At this moment, a sentence written by a predecessor appeared in Emperor De’s mind.
“Five cities are to be given today, then ten cities will be given tomorrow, and then I will be able to sleep in peace for a night. When I wake up the next morning, the army of the Qin Dynasty will once again arrive…”
“The land of the vassals is limited, but the greed of the tyrant Qin Dynasty is unlimited.”
“If I give them an inch, they’ll ask for a mile.”
“The outcome of this war has already been determined without a single casualty nor fight…”
If he behaved cowardly now, the Yuhua God Dynasty could only be bullied by others in the future. By then, its demise would surely be nigh.
“No, I cannot agree to it!” Emperor De said firmly.
But then, he became discouraged.
‘What can I use to deal with the Seven Great Sages of the Demon Race who have broken through into the Grotto-Heaven Realm?’ Emperor De asked himself.
The most powerful people under him were only at the peak of the Human God Realm.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
It was enough to intimidate small factions and small sects.
But to use them to threaten the Seven Sages who have broken through into the Grotto-Heaven Realm was merely a pipe dream.
“My younger sister has been in seclusion for five years. I wonder how strong she is now. I should probably go and ask her for help.”
Emperor De immediately thought of the Princess Yulin who caused a storm five years ago.
