Ch 40.03

~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~

Just as I was pondering about it, in this moment, I  suddenly saw another black energy that was abruptly floating in the sky of Jin Zhou City. I observed it; that black energy was actually coming from outside the golden light of Jin Zhou City’s Demon Defensive Array!


It was someone from the outside! Outside, there was a demonic cultivator who was also trying to destroy the Demon Defensive Array!


Who could it be? How did that person know of the news of a battle breaking out in Jin Zhou City so soon? Besides, who would dare to meddle and help Mo Qing and I in this moment of uncertain outcome? Was it someone from Wan Lu Sect? No, it could not be; North Mountain Lord was imprisoned, Gu Han Guang was a homebody, and Sima Rong absolutely could not have a powerful cultivation such as this. Was it that crazy girl, East Mountain Lord? No… She would only use the most rudimentary method to smash directly into the city gates…

I could not think of anyone who it could possibly be; and in this moment, the concentrated golden swords of light of the Demon Defensive Array also had felt the demonic energy’s attack coming from outside the city. The gigantic sword immediately parted and transformed into countless small swords with the blade’s edge pointing outward and shot towards the demonic energy that was outside.

Mo Qing took the opportunity to close his eyes and pour even more power into Wan Jun Sword. The earth burst open and the Demon Defensive Array rocked violently, but it still did not shatter.

I clenched my teeth and in my heart, I knew that I could not drag this out any longer. With one hand, I pressed on the wound on my shoulder, then I took my bloodied thumb and smeared the blood onto Liu He Tian Yi Sword to carry out a simple blood sacrifice technique that would add mighty strength to the sword. Then regardless of everything, I mobilized all of the power in Zhi Yan’s body. After that, I gathered it into Liu He Tian Yi Sword. 

Beside me, Shen Qian Jin was staring at me. Her eyes showed astonishment, as if she was surprised at how I could know about this type of sorcery, the blood sacrifice. I did not pay any attention to her, turned around and stood in front of Mo Qing.

I glanced at him and in this moment, he looked even more similar to a god-like statue. It was just that he had black energy wrapped around his body that made him looked more like an evil god than an ordinary god. The corners of my mouth curled up and I smiled softly.

[Mhm, I like the evil god.]

I stood in front of him and just like him, I closed my eyes. Then I chanted an incantation and the light on Liu He Tian Yi Sword lit up. I calmed my heart, held the sword hilt, and then slammed the sword into the ground and firmly shouted: “Lightning!”

The entire length of Liu He Tian Yi Sword “crackled,” as it trembled fiercely with brilliant rays of light. Brilliant blue rays of light as thin as threads rushed towards the horizon. I waited silently for a moment and then heard the summoning of huge lightning flashes and rolling thunder from outside Jin Zhou City, above the zenith.

Thunderbolts accumulated and rumbled, as if the roar came from the Ninth Heaven itself. Then a huge thunderbolt boomed and suddenly dropped down from above, smashing into the Demon Defensive Array from outside Jin Zhou City.

The brilliant blue rays of light intersected with the golden light of the magical array. The beautiful scenery surpassed any sunrise and sunset combined. However, in this moment, Mo Qing suddenly opened his eyes and the ground under his feet immediately cracked into pieces.

Along with the lighting and thunder in the sky, the Demon Defensive Array that was made in Jin Zhou City many years ago and was called an impenetrable defense by the celestial sects was finally broken.


For just a moment, all the restrictions related to magic no longer existed.

As soon as Mo Qing grabbed my hand tightly, he paid no heed to anything else. He did not care about how he had overturned the legend in the hearts of the celestial cultivators, nor did he care about how he had smashed the entire land into pieces.


He just gazed at me fixedly and softly said: “I’ll take you away.”

It was these four words again.


It was like a long-cherished wish that he had kept hidden within his heart and finally in this moment, he could have his heart’s desire fulfilled.

I did not know why, but suddenly I was actually emotionally touched by him… And became speechless.


This was the first time that I was aware that I, Lu Zhao Yao, could have a moment where I would be perfectly happy to let another person’s limelight surpass mine.



[I will let you take me away. I will let you protect me. I will let you love me.]

[Because I also want to follow you. I also want to be protected by you. I also want to let you…]

I lowered my eyes. Within a flash of using the Instant Travel Technique, I broke off that train of thought that appeared like the devil…

  1. Thank you for your hard work in translantion. More that romantic (and let’s be sincere, even is a action chapter, it’s impossible not read with a smile in the face..rs) this part in my opinion show for the first that ZY realize she can be loved, not just feared or admired. Finally she’ll start understand that MQ behavioir about her is love and not a search for power, however is funny see her misunderstand everything he does for her.
