The dark shadow dragged Shen Li away and disappeared. Fu Sheng laughed zealously at the sky: “The thousand-year-old wish! The thousand-year-old wish will finally come true! Hahaha!” That deranged look of his actually made him seem like he was crazy with joy. However, his laughter abruptly came to a grunting stop at its peak, when a sharp icicle pierced through his heart. He did not know when Xing Zhi stood before him. Xing Zhi’s face was expressionless and his voice was as cold as ice, “Where did you take Shen Li?”

As black blood poured out of Fu Sheng’s mouth, it landed on that transparent icicle. He looked at Xing Zhi, grinning: “Based on the Divine Sovereign’s abilities, how can you not have guessed where?” He said in a hoarse voice, “I want her to go replace the Seal of Fire. I want her to be a burial object when the Ruins of Heavenly Poles collapse! How does the Divine Sovereign feel when he sees the woman he loves die in the seal that he made?! Haha!”

As Xing Zhi’s eyes turned even icier, countless needle-like icicles stabbed into all of the blood vessels in Fu Sheng’s body. As Fu Sheng’s body convulsed involuntarily, his lips still carried that crazy smile. With Xing Zhi’s speed, he should be able to reach the Ruins of Heavenly Poles before that black shadow. When Xing Zhi turned around and was about to leave, his body was suddenly restrained. It was the demonic energy from Fu Sheng’s body overflowing and wrapping itself around his ankle: “I won’t let you go. You won’t be able to get to Shen Li’s side before she successfully becomes the seal.” The demons rushed towards Xing Zhi and tried to use the Attrition Warfare Formation to stall him.

Xing Zhi’s eyes flickered with murderous intent; the wrath of the deity which made heaven and earth cry mournfully. As the wind whistled and screamed, it carried his voice, as if his voice came from hell: “Seeking death.”

As the Water Prohibition Technique swept past, heaven and earth were purged.

Meanwhile, Shen Li had no idea what was going on in the Demon Palace. The poisonous miasma was spreading throughout her body. She knew that this kind of poison was the same poison that Fu Sheng had used on her last time when she was in the Mortal Realm in Yang Zhou City. At that time, this poison was cured by Xing Zhi, but now… Fu Sheng had refined this poison even more, making it more vicious!

As Shen Li gritted her teeth, out of the corner of her eye, she glanced at the person, who was moving very quickly, carrying her.

His eyes were soulless, his face was completely covered in red stripes, and his canine teeth were extremely long, almost like the fangs of a beast. However, even if this person became this way, Shen Li still recognized him–

“Mo Fang…” She squeezed out these two words from her throat. For a moment, Mo Fang’s figure slowed down. However, it only lasted for a moment. Then with an expressionless face, he took Shen Li to the Ruins of Heavenly Poles. He was just like any other demon, he had no self-assertion and simply obeyed orders.

Recalling how Mo Fang had looked last time when he took her out of the dungeon, Shen Li only felt sadness in her heart. With much difficulty, she said: “Why did you willingly become like this…”

Those scarlet-red eyes seemed to move and they glanced at Shen Li. However, his body continued to move forward, his speed riding the clouds was so fast that Shen Li could not believe it. After becoming a demon, his powers had increased, too…

“My Lo…” Mo Fang’s lips moved slightly, as if it was extremely difficult to control his own mouth to say what he wanted to say, “Let blood… Escape.”

Stunned, Shen Li did not know what kinds of feelings surged up in her heart. This person betrayed the Demon Realm, betrayed her, but even now he was still helping her. In Shen Li’s world, it was actually very simple: friends, enemies, and insignificant people. However, right now, she did not know which classifier to use with Mo Fang. Maybe the human heart was a complicated thing, how could it clearly distinguish these simple standards?

Shen Li bit her lower lip. As soon as she exerted force, blood spilled out from her lips. Just as she expected, the strength in her body recovered little by little.

However, Mo Fang was moving too fast, Shen Li could already see the mountain range that separated the Ruins of Heavenly Poles from the land of the Demon Realm in the distance. At that moment, she bit her lip even harder. As blood flowed out, her strength poured back into her limbs. Suddenly, she jumped up and pushed Mo Fang away. She whirled around and landed on the ground.

At this time, she was already standing beside the gate of the Ruins of Heavenly Poles.

The miasma filled the air, even more so than when the scorpion-tailed fox ran out the first time.

Mo Fang stood on the other side of the miasma, his scarlet-red eyes were very striking.  However, seeing Shen Li escape from his grasp, his body rushed forward as if he had self-awareness. He did not withdraw his sword. He approached Shen Li with his bare fists. He clenched his teeth, as if trying to control something: “Go…” He squeezed out these two short words, “Go quickly!”

After saying that, a long sword appeared in his hand. He held the hilt of the sword towards himself and stabbed it into his own abdominal cavity.

Shen Li was stunned. As Mo Fang vomited a mouthful of black blood onto the ground, he knelt down on his knees, and the scarlet-redness in his eyes faded just a little. With much difficulty, he said: “Your Majesty, hurry up. I can’t control it for too long…”

“Why…”

Mo Fang closed his eyes tightly: “It was fate that I had to betray you, but… Once this love was given… I, Mo Fang, didn’t dare to want to hurt you nor could I do it.”

As the corners of Shen Li’s lips moved, Mo Fang’s eyes widened and he shouted sharply: “Go!” However, before his voice faded away, he only heard several treacherous laughs: “My son is not filial.” Carried by the miasma, that voice drifted out from the Ruins of Heavenly Poles.

Hearing this voice, Shen Li was startled, this… This was actually the voice she heard in the Ruins of Heavenly Poles the last time! At that time, he shouted frantically, “I will kill the gods,” but now…

As Shen Li was still thinking about it, something sticky like a lizard’s tongue shot out from the Ruins of Heavenly Poles. When it was about to capture Shen Li, Mo Fang moved in front of Shen Li to block it. He slashed it with his sword and the tongue instantly split in half.

Black blood kept pouring out of Mo Fang’s abdomen. He turned his head and glanced at Shen Li, just like he had done many times in the Demon Realm, watching her quietly from behind her back. Only in moments when Shen Li was not aware of it, would he dare to show his own emotions on his face. In this exact moment, to be able to look at her in such an upright and frank manner once more… It really… Could not get any better.
