Chapter 537: The descendant of the ancient witches
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
Inside Song Shuhang's house.
In the living room, Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist, who was currently chatting and drinking tea with Papa Song, slightly raised his head and looked outside.
'Is this the aura of two cultivators of the Fourth Stage? Why are they approaching this place?' Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist thought to himself and frowned.
Is it possible that they came here for the enlightenment stone?
Little friend Song Shuhang should be well aware of how precious the enlightenment stone is. Moreover, there was also that powerful senior together with him to advise him. Therefore, he shouldn't have been stupid enough to tell others about the enlightenment stone, right?
If not for the enlightenment stone, why are those two cultivators of the Fourth Stage Innate Realm secretly approaching this place?
"They had better not come here for the enlightenment stone, otherwise..."
Well, there is no otherwise actually! The enlightenment stone isn't even here!
But right at this time, the situation outside changed once again.
Just as the Black-Robed Man No. 1 and the Black-Robed Man No. 2 were secretly approaching Song Shuhang's house, the former felt everything before his eyes going black and fell to the ground with a thump.
Did someone sneak-attack him?
The Black-Robed Man No. 2 immediately became extremely cautious. A cultivator of the Fourth Stage Realm wouldn't casually trip and fall unless distracted! Since his companion was surely not distracted, he was sneak-attacked by someone!
Before they came here, Young Master Hai repeatedly reminded them to be very careful while approaching the house of that Stressed by a Mountain of Books.
The reason was that there might be a powerful cultivator hiding in the surroundings.
Therefore, the Black-Robed Man No. 1 and the Black-Robed Man No. 2 had both been extremely careful while coming here.
But they didn't expect that someone would still manage to ambush them. At this time, the Black-Robed Man No. 2 was scared out of his wits. The people hidden in the dark seemed rather familiar with their style, or to be more precise, with the style of the Limitless Demon Sect. They knew about the patterns they used to move, the characteristics of their cultivation techniques, their weaknesses, and even how to perform fatal attacks against them by exploiting their flaws.
It felt as though they were fighting against their 'natural enemy'!
The Black-Robed Man No. 2 was very vigilant as he cautiously approached his companion, trying to see if he could wake him up.
But just as the Black-Robed Man No. 2 was cautiously moving toward his companion, a glittering, thin metallic object suddenly attacked him from a dead angle, hitting the back of his head.
The Black-Robed Man No. 2 immediately lost consciousnessjust like his companion.
Soon after, the five members of the Spirit River Su Clan showed themselves.
Amongst them, one was holding a blowpipe. It was the person that had knocked out the Black-Robed Man No. 1.
Afterward, another person stretched out its hands and summoned back the metallic object.
These two cultivators weren't part of the 'Fifth Squad' that Su Clan's Seven had appointed... they were members of the 'hunting squad' specially trained by the Spirit River Su Clan. They specialized in tracking and hunting the enemies of the Spirit River Su Clan.
These two members of the 'hunting squad' knew the basic techniques of the Limitless Demon Sect like the palms of their hands. Therefore, it wasn't exaggerated to say that they were the natural enemies of the ordinary disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect.
However, they hadn't come to this place to carry out Seven's mission. After all, such a small task wasn't even worth their time. The fact that they appeared in this place was a mere coincidence!
After completing a mission yesterday, the members of the 'hunting squad' were heading back to the Spirit River Su Clan. On their way back, they just happened to pass through Wenzhou City. As coincidence would have it, they were friends with the members of the 'Fifth Squad' and decided to stop over to talk about the old times.
Afterward, they decided to give them a hand as they heard that the members of the 'Fifth Squad' had to catch two disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect.
After they got into action, it wasn't any different than professional players bullying newbies.
Those two disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect probably didn't read their horoscope carefully while leaving home... because their luck was simply awful!
They met that group of cultivators demanding their pay while in space and the members of the 'hunting squad' of the Spirit River Su Clan while on Earth. It was truly a heartbreaking turn of events.
The three members of the Fifth Squad faintly smiled and stepped forward, getting ready to tie up the two disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect.
"The mission is complete. We'll invite you guys for a drink as soon as Brother Seven issues the reward," the three members of the Fifth Squad said with a smile.
But just as they were laughing, the bodies of the tied up disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect turned into blood mist that scattered in all directions.
The eyes of the two members of the 'hunting squad' lit up as they exclaimed, "The Menstruation Evasion Technique!"
The three members of the Fifth Squad simultaneously shouted, "The Blood Evasion Technique!"
The Blood Evasion Technique... was also known as the Menstruation Evasion Technique. The analogy seemed really fitting.
The Blood Evasion Technique was a rather tricky and wondrous technique. Just as the technique was used, the user would turn into a mass of bloody mist and scatter in all directions, fleeing from their original position. Finally, the blood mist would converge in one place, and the user would assume their original shape once more.
Even if part of the blood mist was destroyed, the user would at most receive some wounds that would recover in a few days.
If one was lucky, even part of the valuable items they were carrying with them would be engulfed in the blood mist and carried away!
Once the Blood Evasion Technique was practiced to perfection, the user would be able to survive and return to its previous state as long as a little wisp of blood mist managed to get away. The received injuries would recover in a few years, and the user would restore their strength without problems. It was precisely for this reason that the Blood Evasion Technique was known as a technique that could allow one to get away even from a Sixth Stage True Monarch.
After hearing this much, the technique seemed rather incredible, right?
Yes, it was indeed incredible, and even the two members of the 'hunting squad' were unable to block it. As soon as the Blood Evasion Technique activated, the Black-Robed Man No. 1 and the Black-Robed Man No. 2 were safe and no longer in danger.
But even if they couldn't block the Blood Evasion Technique, the two members of the 'hunting squad' knew how to deal with it and obtain some advantages from it.
In the next moment, the members of the 'hunting squad' stretched out their hands, quickly catching several wisps of blood mist and sealing them inside a special bottle.
Losing a portion of the blood mist wasn't enough to prevent the two disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect from escaping.
However, after the two black-robed disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect had gotten away and returned to their human form, the blood mist sealed inside the bottle would also assume its original shape.
Part of the wisps of blood mist would turn into the treasures the Black-Robed Man No. 1 and the Black-Robed Man No. 2 were carrying with them.
However, the majority of the blood mist would transform into pure energy in the shape of blood-red crystals. One couldn't directly absorb the energy within the blood-red crystals as they could do with spirit stones. Nevertheless, it was possible to put them inside puppets and formations, effectively replacing spirit stones.
In addition, there was a chance that the blood mist would turn into silver-colored blood. The silver blood was the condensed form of the mental energy of the user of the Blood Evasion Technique.
A part of the person's memories would be concealed within the silver blood.
The reason the members of the Spirit River Su Clan wanted to capture the two disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect was to interrogate them to get additional information about the Limitless Demon Sect from their mouths.
If the blood mist were to turn into 'silver blood', their mission would be considered as complete.
The blood mist scattered in all directions, quickly disappearing.
But the two members of the 'hunting squad' of the Spirit River Su Clan had managed to catch a large amount of the mass of bloody mist.
In the meantime.
In the Limitless Demon Sect, beneath the Nine-eyed Kama Hall, on the 69th peak, the Mahoraga Peak.
On the edge of the cliff shrouded in mist, Young Master Hai's puppet clone slowly stood up. There were two talismans before him. But right at this time, both talismans suddenly burned to ashes.
"The talismans of the Blood Evasion Technique the two junior brothers had with them suddenly activated," Young Master Hai's puppet said while swaying amidst the wind.
The talismans with the Blood Evasion Technique the two disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect had with them were something that Young Master Hai had gifted them.
After all, it was very likely that a powerful expert was hiding in the house of that 'Stressed by a Mountain of Books'. Therefore, Young Master Hai couldn't casually send two cultivators of the Fourth Stage there to die.
Demon Monarch Anzhi's soul clone appeared and said, "It means that someone is still secretly protecting Stressed by a Mountain of Books."
"Just as we expected." Young Master Hai said with a nod. The two junior brothers were used as pawns to probe into the situation.
At this time, a purple bamboo drilled out from one side. The purple bamboo was Immortal Farming Sect's Zheng Neng's clone. "I have some news. After the conclusion of the hand-guided tractor competition, Stressed by a Mountain of Books exchanged the Blood God Crystal with another cultivator called 'Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman'."
This matter was hardly a secret. On the contrary, Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman himself had decided to make it public to help Song Shuhang. The meaning was: 'Do you want the Blood God Crystal? Come and look for me!'
"Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman? What is his cultivation level?" Demon Monarch Anzhi asked.
The purple bamboo replied, "He is currently at the peak of the Fourth Stage Realm and should be about to break through to the Fifth Stage Realm."
"He is only at the Fourth Stage Realm? Such being the case, shouldn't we send someone to steal the Blood God Crystal from him? Even if we already have the Blood Sea Jade, getting an extra Blood God Crystal should help us increase the chances of getting a good number of dragon patterns on our Golden Cores," Demon Monarch Anzhi said.
But right at this time, Young Master Hai's puppet clone gently shook his head and said, "If the 'Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman' you mentioned is that grandmaster specialized in manufacturing talismans, we can't make a move against him."
"Why?" Demon Monarch Anzhi asked out of curiosity.
"Even if I dared to provoke the Spirit River Su Clan, I absolutely don't dare to provoke the influence behind Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman. I like to take on dangerous challenges, but I don't like to take on challenges where I'm bound to die for sure," Young Master Hai's puppet said with a smile.
There weren't many people that knew about the influence behind Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman. But all the people that knew about it were unwilling to have it as an enemy.
Demon Monarch Anzhi said disgruntedly, "In that case, are we supposed to let go of the Blood God Crystal?"
"It's the only option for the time being... since the Blood God Crystal isn't in Stressed by a Mountain of Books' possession anymore, we don't need to pay him as much as attention as before," Young Master Hai said.
As for the grudge with Song Shuhang, they would postpone it until after they had broken through the Fifth Stage and consolidated their realm! This matter wasn't going to end just like that!
"Alright, there seems to be no other alternative for now," Zheng Neng said with a sigh. Soon after, he used the secret sound transmission and said, "Right. Did you manage to obtain information about the plan of the Hall Leader to save the captured eight Peak Leaders?"
According to their own plan, it was better if only half of the Peak Leaders returned to the sect. With that, the three of them would have the opportunity to replace the missing ones and take over their already built peaks, allowing them to increase their status within the Limitless Demon Sect in a very short amount of time.
Young Master Hai faintly smiled and said via secret sound transmission, "Yes, I have. But it wasn't confidential information or anything."
Demon Monarch Anzhi said via secret sound transmission, "Anyway, I've taken care of the matter on my side as well. My clone managed to find the traces of the descendant of the ancient witches, Elise!"
The name 'Elise' wasn't really a western name but the mere pronunciation of a word; it was a so-called 'phonetic name'.
The witches were ancient practitioners that lived throughout China before cultivators started to appear. Their power system was completely different from that of cultivators, but after training their abilities to the peak, they could likewise overturn the seas and the stars.
But after an unknown amount of time, the heritage of the ancient witches had started to disappear, getting replaced with the heritage cultivators left behind.
Slowly, the ancient witches started to disappear from the world. They didn't die or anything, but it became much more difficult to see them around.
The 'phonetic name' was something exclusive to the ancient witches.
Ancient witches wouldn't easily tell their real names to others. After all, their real name possessed all sorts of mysterious powers. For this reason, they would take a special 'phonetic name' and use it to replace their real name.
From this point of view, their 'phonetic name' was somewhat similar to the 'dao name' of cultivators.
However, ancient witches mostly used their phonetic name to cover up their real name. On the other hand, the dao name of a cultivator was like a second name and was somewhat linked to their destiny.
The name Demon Monarch Anzhi mentioned earlier, Elise, was precisely the phonetic name of a witch. Elise was a descendant of the ancient witches and her strength couldn't be measured up in the same way as cultivators. Nevertheless, her pure fighting capacity was comparable to that of a cultivator of the Sixth Stage. But if she made full use of her familiar, voodoo, witchcraft, and so on, her strength would far surpass that of a Sixth Stage True Monarch.
Young Master Hai and the others were looking for the witch Elise because they wanted to make use of her strength to complete their plan.
The ancient witch Elise was a close friend of Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue. Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue had repeatedly saved her life, and Elise was looking for an opportunity to repay the favor.
As a consequence, Young Master Hai and the others decided to borrow the strength of the witch to have some of the Peak Leaders of the Limitless Demon Sect stay behind in Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's mine. It was a pretty good choice.
Their plan consisted in bringing over the ancient witch while the Hall Leader of the Nine-eyed Kama Hall was rescuing the eight Peak Leaders, giving him time to save only three or four of them. As for the remaining Peak Leaders, they could happily keep mining in Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's mine.
The only problem was that ancient witches weren't that easy to use.
Perhaps due to the special method they used to practice, all ancient witches were very moody, and their train of thought wasn't on the same page as normal people.
For someone like Young Master Hai that liked to have everything under his control and leave nothing to fate, it was rather annoying to rely on such a person.
No one knew what this type of person would do in the next instant... because even the person in question didn't know what they would do next!
Young Master Hai sighed and said, "Hopefully, everything will go according to the plan."
At the same time, his puppet clone performed a hand seal.
In the distant Wenzhou City, by Baijing Street where Song Shuhang's house was located. The tree leaves next to the place where the bodies of the two disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect were lying before had wisps of blood mist on them that not even the members of the Spirit River Su Clan noticed.
After Young Master Hai performed the hand seal, the small wisps of blood mist transformed into a button-sized metallic spider.
At this time, the members of the Spirit River Su Clan had already left the scene.
The metallic spider quickly crawled toward Song Shuhang's house. It was something that Young Master Hai had secretly concealed within the Blood Evasion Technique. According to his plan, the metallic spider would quietly sneak into Song Shuhang's house and stay there for the time being.
The metallic spider was part of Young Master Hai's reserve plan. If the plan to bring over the ancient witch failed, he could activate the spider and put into practice his reserve plan, using the relationship between Song Shuhang and Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue to reach his own goal.
