Chapter 350 – Huge Fortune
She stopped acting high and noble. After all, those present were all experts. There was the saint clan’s eight magnates, dragon race’s five elders, and the unruly Sea King, Sha Qishan here; acting high and noble in front of him might pique the anger of the Sea King, and Sha Qishan wouldn’t even care if she was the Demon Saint’s queen or not, he would still kill her regardless if he wanted to.
The demon race wouldn’t touch her because of the Demon Saint, but the Sea King was not a demon, he was from the sea race. It was true his looks were dreadful and hideous, but one who knew him well would know that his heart was even more dreadful and hideous! He could slaughter thousands of living beings without bearing any guilt in his heart and even drink their bloods as easily as drinking water. Sha Qishan was strong enough to kill the Demon Queen and he also had the balls to do so.
A huge fortune? Could she be referring to….
A thought flashed across his mind and Zhong Yue looked at the black spring waters flowing above them. That young Shura was also looking at the same time, mulling things over in his head.
Zhong Yue looked down and as if it was fated, he looked over at the young Shura and met with a pair of eyes that were also looking over. Their eyes met for a split second, and they both looked away.
This Shura is thinking about the same thing as me! This brat, he isn’t just Sea King Sha Qishan’s servant, there is something more about him!
Zhong Yue thought, Could he be Feng Wuji’s incarnation? But Feng Wuji wouldn’t have such a clout in the demon race, would he?
Sea King watched as she burned the book before his eyes, he anger was piqued, yet all of a sudden, he stopped as Demon Queen started being humble and spoke of something about a huge fortune. He smirked and said, “Huge fortune? Little girl, if I’m not satisfied with what you are going to say next; then I sincerely hope you will have a good time in the afterlife and that you will reborn into the Demon Queen again in your next life. That is, if there is really such thing in this world.”
“Demon Queen, what fortune are you talking about?” The magnate of the Asura Saint Clan couldn’t contain his questions any longer and beseeched her.
Although they felt enormous regret for the complete【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】being burned right before them, Demon Queen said something about a huge fortune even more valuable than the complete【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】. This naturally piqued their interests.
Demon Queen said smilingly, “Does anyone know what my husband’s heritage is?”
The magnates looked at one another and they all shook their heads. Also, although the younger ones knew that Demon Saint was crowned as a saint by the eight saint clans and that he was the demon race’s ancestor cultivator, they knew nothing about his origins.
According to the rumors, the Demon Saint emerged from Black Well Keep, united the Eighth Barren, and became the only overlord of the demon land. He punished the opposition and sentenced his enemies to death. Before his end, he returned to Black Well Keep and chose to die here.
Only after his death did the eight saint clans emerge. The strongest existences of the saint clans appeared and dug out Demon Saint’s corpse, attaining their own knowledge from his dead body and finally acquired the eight saint clans’【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】.
A blood-curdling battle happened, the sky shook and the earth trembled as the eight saint clans fought for Demon Saint’s corpse. In the end, the demon god’s corpse was eventually destroyed in the battle between the eight saint clans.
Only the Demon Saint’s Yuan Shen remained and was worshipped by the eight saint clans together. It was used as a war machine, only activated when needed. It would be in slumber during peaceful times.
Although the Demon Saint’s spirit embraced a high reputation and status in the demon race, the eight saint clans in fact had closed their eyes to it in fear of his revival. But who knew he would execute his plan before the saint clans were fully prepared, and was now already revived.
“My husband came from here, died here and revived right here. Aren’t you all curious at all?” the Demon Queen asked casually. “To be honest, his reason for being so attached to the Black Well Keep is because that everything he has and had were all acquired from this Black Well Keep. Even his【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】was also obtained from Black Well Keep. And this huge fortune he is going to gift to all of you, is right here in this Black Well Keep.”
In the Heavenly Scent Inn, all of the experts present were moved.
There had long been wild guesses that everything Demon Saint had had originated from Black Well Keep. However, every magnate and every giant cultivator of the demon race had scrutinized every inch of this Black Well Keep, but even the demon gods could not find anything at all.
The spring waters of this Black Well Keep were composed by the broken totem patterns, the mountain itself was the innate demon god’s head. Psyches couldn’t seep through the ground here, and the mountain was unbreakable and remained unscathed by the attacks of the demon gods.
The eight saint clans had basically given up on it,and yet, right at this moment, the Demon Queen was speaking of the fortunes Demon Saint had obtained from it and was now intending to share it with the world; how could this not move them?
Zhong Yue frowned, he said, “Demon Saint is the only one that knew the Black Well Keep’s secrets, I don’t believe he would selflessly share this secret with the world. After all, generosity is something we demons never had in our blood.”
The other demon experts had the same doubts, and even the five magnates of the dragon race locked their brows. There must be something behind this that caused Demon Saint to make such a decision.
In contrast to the demon experts, the five dragon elders and the king of the sea race were actually outsiders. And yet, Demon Saint was saying that he would even share the secret with them. This added even more doubts to the already-suspicious proposal.
However, the secret of the Black Well Keep was so attractive that it had the force to suck their attention in. Even if they knew something wasn’t feeling right, they couldn’t control their greed at all!
Demon Saint was the only one who knew of the secret. He had attained the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】from it and was crowned as a saint because of it. If they could attain the secret that the Demon Saint had, just exactly how high would their future achievements be?
Demon Queen smiled and said, “Is this fortune offered huge enough to ride above the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】? Furthermore, my husband is right inside of the Black Well Keep. He is intending to invite all of you in to have a look at the abstrusities of an innate demon god.”
Zhong Yue praised in his heart, No wonder she can be the Demon Queen, with only words she can manipulate the experts’ attentions to her own advantage while also disarming the incoming dangers. The eight demon concubines are on par with one another, but she was the one chosen to be the Demon Queen, surely she has something unique from the others. What an intelligent lady she is. But what is his end goal? Why is he doing this to help his competitors and outsiders? This is interesting…
The eight demon magnates stood up and said politely, “May the Demon Queen tell us what to do.”
Demon Queen stood up and she said with a smile, “May all of you come with me, please.”
The crowd stood up, and as the Demon Queen led the demon concubines out of the Heavenly Scent Inn, she said leisurely, “When my husband was still a nobody, he found a secret that no one else knew. That is, this innate demon god’s spirit is still here, it had yet to completely disperse, and the scattered spirit formed a secret realm.”
The experts followed her out of the keep and their hearts shuddered as she spoke.
“The innate demon god’s spirit didn’t disperse? Can the innate demon god revive himself?”
“Demon Saint found the secret realm and acquired the innate demon god’s heritage?”
“This heavenly demon’s heritage must be frightening…”
The crowd were puzzled, but Zhong Yue knew it very clearly; the innate demon god’s spirit had yet to completely disperse, but it was not far from that. It was even a blessing for the innate demon god’s spirit to be scattered rather than dispersed after Xin Huo and the previous inheritor killed him.
But Xin Huo said that I’m being locked down by Bo Xun, if I enter his secret realm, wouldn’t it be like a fish willingly swimming into the fisher’s net?, the young man blinked his eyes and thought.
Xin Huo, this Bo Xun’s scattered spirit, will he do anything to me?
Xin Huo mulled over his words for a moment, and answered, “I suppose the memories in the scattered spirit are scarce, little to none; he will have taken you as his murderer, and it is a hundred and one percent chance that he will do something to you. However, even his head is now petrified into a mountain, and without worship, he might not be able to do anything much or serious…”
Zhong Yue then eased his unsettled heart while Tian Mo Concubine suddenly walked up beside him and whispered, “Demon Saint is attracting us into the innate demon god’s secret realm, there must be some plot in this whole thing, we need to be cautious.”
Zhong Yue nodded, he replied with a smile, “Don’t worry, I have it all under control.”
The Demon Queen then smiled and said to the crowd, “My husband entered this heavenly demon’s secret realm and obtained uncountable benefits from it. This is the point of departure of his success, the foundation for him to unite the Eighth Barren. This Heavenly Demon Secret Realm is deep inside the innate demon god’s brain.”
They walked over to right below of the black spring, behind the head of the saint mountain. The magnates looked around and saw nothing but a wasteland, the whole ground was a solid piece of rock and there wasn’t even a single blade of grass.
The Shura magnate was puzzled and asked, “Every magnate was here before, no one ever found anything at all. How did Demon Saint find it and entered it?”
Demon Queen answered with a smile, “They couldn’t find it because they couldn’t sense the innate demon god’s scattered spirit. My husband had just coincidentally connected himself with the scattered soul, that’s how he found it and entered it. Please look carefully.”
She took out an incantation charm and opened it. It was huge like a seating mat, thirty feet long and sixteen feet wide, yellow-auric as if it was a paper made of gold. The demon words drawn on it were blood-red in color, and the whole charm looked incredibly messy, like a child’s drawing.
The blood-red demon words were suffused with a godly aura, the color was so bright and shiny it looked like they would just drip off the gold paper like blood!
“Demon god’s blood!”
“This is one of the charms left behind by the last life of my husband, it is meant to act as the key to open the Heavenly Demon Secret Realm. Please be calm, everyone.”
Demon Queen pasted the charm on the mountain and all of a sudden, the mountain body started to squirm, turning red in color. Eventually, the stone changed back into blood, flesh, skin, and even hair!
It felt like as if the innate demon god’s mortal body had returned to life after the charm was pasted onto it!
After a few seconds, the flesh squirmed to the side and an endless cave appeared before them. The sides of the cave were still flesh and bone, blood veins were thumping constantly, and one could even vaguely see the skull of the innate demon god!
His skull was incredibly smooth, it seemed like something had pierced through it.
When this innate demon god died, his flesh covered the cave and was petrified into stone; no wonder no one could find it! But now, the petrified flesh had come back to life, and the cave was once again exposed to the world.
Xin Huo said with a proud smile, “Brat Yue, this hole in Bo Xun’s head was pierced by the last inheritor. Even when little brat’s brain had a hole in it, he still didn’t die and continued the battle for quite some time before he was beheaded by us.”
Zhong Yue’s heart was alert, he said, “Xin Huo, I have some very, very bad feelings about this. You and the last inheritor did such bad things to him, and with me being in his scattered spirit’s secret realm now, he will unleash his anger toward the two of you upon me….”
“Don’t worry, don’t worry, it’s just Bo Xun’s scattered spirit, he can’t possibly inflict any huge damages,” Xin Huo comforted him.
“Say, will his head fully turn back into flesh and bone, and be revived?” Zhong Yue suddenly thought of an important question, and quickly asked, “If he can move his head, doesn’t that mean that he has a mortal body already?”
Xin Huo shook his head and replied, “That would require a very large amount of energy to do so, even the offerings would have to be abundant beyond imagination
