(Translator's note: from this chapter, the Demonic Sound Clan will be revised to Dark Devil Clan. I'm currently checking the previous chapters and re-translating them. I found this mistake in chapter 233. For the consistency of the novel, I will use Dark Devil Clan from now on. I'm sorry for this inconvenience.)
The Perpetual Night Forest was a s.p.a.cious area several million miles squared. This place was shady year around. Demonic beasts swaggered here and there.
After several days of walking in the forest, s.h.i.+ Yan found more dead bodies of the Dark Devil Clan and the Winged Clan. Moreover, he saw many signs of deaths, which belonged to the Yang family’s warriors.
Along the way, his heart sank deeper as he suffered a big sorrow.
s.h.i.+ Yan had thought that he didn’t need to care about the great change of the Grace Mainland, and he just needed to protect his family, saving them from harm.
But now he knew how funny his idea was. The whole continent was sinking in a great tsunami. Pagans were slaughtering and robbing everywhere. Who was lucky enough to escape this calamity?
All of a sudden, he felt a strong soul fluctuation in his Sea of Consciousness!
s.h.i.+ Yan accelerated, das.h.i.+ng at his max speed toward the East.
His energy exploded everywhere. On his way, all the flora was crushed.
Level 3 and level 4 demonic beasts along his way scattered disorderly when they sensed his intimidating aura.
s.h.i.+ Yan halted.
Three level 7 demonic beasts were surrounding ten members of the Dark Devil Clan by a swamp.
The leader of this group had only the Third Sky of Nirvana Realm. He was wounded badly. Blood was gus.h.i.+ng out from one of his arms.
The three level 7 beasts included a one-horned rhino, a jasper spider, and an eight-legged blue blood frog. They all had intellect with quick moves.
This group of ten clansmen of the Dark Devil Clan couldn’t resist anymore, obviously. If no one helped them, they would perish soon.
Yi Mu paled, looking at his fellows falling one by one. Hatred overflowed his heart. He regretted that his competence wasn't enough to take revenge for his fellows. Looking at the dismembered bodies, he was about to get crazy.
The Jasper spider looked like a round object. Its legs sparkled with a cold, blue light. Every time they stomped on the ground, they dug a deep hole.
The Jasper spider was like an experienced hunter. It wasn’t hurried as it was slowly weaving a web. This arachnid wanted to capture Yi Mu’s group alive and then eat their brains little by little.
This beast was smart. It knew that the human brain tasted best when they were alive, so it didn’t rush. First, it would drain Yi Mu’s group, then it could slowly enjoy the fine food.
When the energy of heaven and earth changed, demonic beasts in the Grace Mainland seemed to gain intellect as well. The genuine beasts were now all cunning. Apparently, they formed the so-called Monster Clan.
When the beasts reached level 7, not only their wisdom increased, but they also gained some magical cultivating techniques of the Monster Clan. This would enhance their power on a ma.s.sive scale. Vaguely, they had become the official members of the Monster Clan.
s.h.i.+ Yan’s figure halted in between the three beasts while a murderous aura diffused from him.
Demonic beasts at level 7 all had wisdom. They showed that they were scared of s.h.i.+ Yan’s imposing aura when they just sensed it. The beasts retreated quickly.
Hwee Hwoo Hwoo!
These beasts had used the strange whistling to communicate. Three beasts scattered, moving to three different directions as they wanted to flee away from this man as far as possible.
"Young Master Yan!"
Yi Mu’s eyes seemed to rupture, sparkling with a strange light as he couldn’t help but shout. This man was Yi Tian Mo’s nephew, so he had met s.h.i.+ Yan several times. At the most critical time, he almost burst into tears on seeing s.h.i.+ Yan.
s.h.i.+ Yan’s countenance was cold. He didn't say anything. His mind flickered as he released the War Devil, a.s.signing it to kill.
The War Devil was like a steel and iron war chariot, barging rumblingly and moving directly towards the Jasper spider.
The web the jasper spider had weaved was smashed. The War Devil wildly stomped his ten-thousand-jun (a jun = 30 jin = 15 kilograms) foot on the Jasper spider. Its heavy foot pierced through the spider.
The War Devil turned around, das.h.i.+ng towards the other two beasts.
s.h.i.+ Yan didn’t watch the battle. He came to Yi Mo, who was bleeding badly, took out a jade bottle and gave it to him. "Swallow them. Three pills for each of you. Sit down and restore yourself now."
It was the Great Original Qi pellet he had exchanged in the Spirit Potion Valley. It was considered a rare spiritual medicine in the Divine Great Land to nurture the body and restore the warrior’s spirit, mind, and soul.
Tears lingered in Yi Mu’s eyes. He didn’t talk more, nodded, and swallowed three pills. Then, he handed the remaining pills to the other fellows.
Thirteen members of the Dark Devil Clan received three pills each.
As s.h.i.+ Yan had advised them, they sat down and started to adjust their bodies to recover their wounds.
s.h.i.+ Yan watched here and there. He found five bodies of the Dark Devil Clan around one thousand meters away from them. All were ripped apart and headless. The beasts must have eaten them.
s.h.i.+ Yan sighed in his heart, his face sad. He knew he was one step late.
Bang Bang Bang!
The sound of the War Devil’s stomping arose not far from them. After ten seconds, that noise stopped.
s.h.i.+ Yan knew the other two beasts were killed.
Shortly, the War Devil came back. Its armor covered its steel body perfectly, without a bloodstain.
The War Devil stopped next to him. There was no light in its empty eyes as though it was a dead thing.
s.h.i.+ Yan also stood stupefied, waiting in silence while his heart was chilled.
After one hour, Yi Mu had restored. He was the first one to wake up. He kneeled down in front of s.h.i.+ Yan, choking with sobs. "There are not more than one-third folks left in our clan. It's the same with the Winged Clan. Since we've come to the Divine Great Land, we have always been running. We hide everywhere! We just want to survive."
s.h.i.+ Yan’s face was furious. He gritted his teeth and nodded. "After all, what’s happened? Where are Yi Tian Mo and the others?"
"Our General and the others are also in the Perpetual Night Forest. They are hiding. At this moment, they have cut the soul connection using a barrier to prevent stealth operation." Tears rolled down Yi Mu’s face, his eyes bloodshot. "The number of our members who died in the hands of the seven ancient factions is more than the number that the beasts have killed! Young Master Yan, you have to take revenge for us!"
"Seven ancient factions!" A drop of dark red blood trickled from the corner of s.h.i.+ Yan’s mouth as if it was the tear of the Devil in h.e.l.l. He thundered, "What’s happened after all?"
"When we had just arrived in the Divine Great Land, the Radiant G.o.d Cult treated us not too badly. The Cult Master had come to the Northern Gem Mountain to feast with the Yang family's head. However, not long after that, the alien tribes started their invasion. They ma.s.sacred in every corner of the Divine Great Land."
Yi Mu was on his knees as he explained with a resentful tone. "The seven ancient factions couldn’t resist the savage attack. They joined hands and moved to the general direction of the Martial Spirit Palace. We heard that the Martial Spirit Palace had a secret domain that they could get in and hide away from the pagan slaughter. At that time, we went with the disciples of the Radiant G.o.d Cult. But when we arrived in the Martial Spirit Palace’s territory, meeting up with the other factions of the seven ancient factions, everything changed. Except for the Radiant G.o.d Cult, the other six factions wanted to kill us all when they saw the Winged Clan and our clan."
"Master Yun Hao of the Radiant G.o.d Cult couldn't stop that. He couldn't help but let us detach from their formation. We had no choice but to come to the Perpetual Night Forest to hide. Not long afterward, the other factions started to ambush and kill us. There are level 9 demonic beasts here. The other beasts also have intellect. They know how to besiege and kill us. In this place, both the beasts and humanity want to kill us. It's just been half a year, and we have already borne a significant loss."
"Where is the Yang family? Did they go with you guys?" s.h.i.+ Yan’s countenance changed, asking coldly.
"They’re here too." Tears filled Yi Mo's face. "The Yang family's head is a good man. Right at the beginning, he had tried to protect us. Unfortunately, the Yang Head isn't so strong in the Divine Great Land. Currently, the Yang family stays with us in this Perpetual Night Forest. But the Three G.o.ds Sect and the Xia family, who had come to the Divine Great Land with us, have officially become the members of the seven ancient factions. When the secret domain opened, the Head of the Yangs refused to go there. He brought a part of the Yang family and the s.h.i.+ family to go with our Clan and the Winged Clan. Sigh. The Head of the Yang family seems unable to endure it anymore. Many human hotshots who used to listen to the Head of the Yangs wanted to kill us so that they could become an ally of the seven ancient factions. Begrudgingly, the Yang family and we had to separate. We stay in two different places in the Perpetual Night Forest to avoid unwanted events…"
Yi Mu was sorrowful, telling s.h.i.+ Yan the events they had been through since they had arrived in the Divine Great Land. After he had finished narrating, s.h.i.+ Yan’s aura burst out. With a ruthless face, he said gloomily. "So that’s how it is."
s.h.i.+ Yan wasn’t so surprised. Since he had found the dead bodies of the Dark Devil Clan and the Winged Clan, he could guess the situation. However, when he heard the stories from Yi Mu, he still got enraged.
"Now, are they alive? Are anyone of them, I mean the leaders, dead?" Trying to press down his anger, s.h.i.+ Yan took several deep breaths to calm himself.
He was anxious that the result he was about to hear could make him crazy.
"Ya Meng. General Ye Meng is dead. One of the Shura Kings of the Yang family is dead too. His name was Li Mu. Besides them, some other strong experts were killed," sobbed Yi Mu.
s.h.i.+ Yan’s face became more ruthless and darker. "Who killed them?"
"The Heaven Temple's disciple had killed Ya Meng. Li Mu died in the hands of an Elder of the Pure Land. Among the seven ancient factions, besides Master Yun Hao of the Radiant G.o.d Cult, the other leaders don't ban their disciples from killing us. Oh yeah, there's a small force called the Ice Emperor City. During the battle, they always showed mercy. They helped many members of us survive," explained Yi Mu.
s.h.i.+ Yan was surprised.
He had never expected that the four women of the Ice Emperor would help him at the most critical moment when humans hated the alien tribes a lot. It wasn't easy for them to do so.
His chilled heart got warmer a little bit when he heard this story.
