Chapter 1023 The Use of the Black Demon Pearls
“Brother, why have you come?”
When she saw Li Tianxing, Niu Cuihua immediately went over to greet him.
“You’re a traitor. I’ll talk to you later.”
Li Tianxing glared at Niu Cuihua and then walked over to Qin Haodong.
“Brother, tell me what you want to…”
Niu Cuihua was about to stop her brother but Li Tianxing sent her flying with a wave of his sleeve.
Although she had reached the late stage of the Grand Completion Realm, there was still a big gap between her and the sect master of the Ghost King Sect, whose cultivation was the peak of the Grand Completion Realm.
Li Tianxing stepped up to Qin Haodong and said, “Boy, how dare you go against the Ghost King Sect?
“For the sake of my sister, if you kneel down and become my ghost slave now, I can spare your life.”
Qin Haodong was very angry. He glanced at Li Tianxing coldly and said, “For Cuihua’s sake, I can spare your life if you get lost now.”
“Boy, do you really think you are invincible in the world? Now I’ll show you the strength of our Ghost King Sect.”
Li Tianxing raised his hand to cast a spell. Then, the air around changed instantly. In the blink of an eye, the clear sky was filled with a ghostly aura. Vicious ghosts darted around the crowd. It seemed that they’d fallen into the depths of hell.
“Formation of Ten Thousand Ghosts from the Hell!”
Niu Cuihua recognized this formation, which was the most powerful formation of the Ghost King Sect. However, it was not easy to set up.
Seeing that Li Tianxing was intent on using the formation, she panicked immediately.
Qin Haodong was the man she loved the most, while Li Tianxing was her biological brother. She didn’t want either of them to get hurt.
She shouted to the Little Witch and the others, “This formation is very powerful. Don’t move, everyone.”
Then, she shouted to Li Tianxing, “Brother, what are you doing? Remove the formation as soon as possible. I’m already his woman.”
“Butt out. This is none of your business,” Li Tianxing said to Niu Cuihua. Then, he looked at Qin Haodong proudly and said, “I’ll give you another chance. It’s not too late to surrender now.”
Qin Haodong didn’t panic at all. He looked at Li Tianxing coldly and said, “How did you know I would be here?”
“You robbed us of all the seven Black Demon Pearls. I thought you knew the secret of the Black Demon Pearls. Thus, I came here early to wait for you.
“I didn’t expect you to be such an ignorant boy who doesn’t know anything and came here by accident.”
Li Tianxing said, “But this is good, too. You have already helped me gain control of the three kingdoms of the Lingwu Continent. As long as I defeat you now, I will be the ruler of this continent.”
Qin Haodong said coldly, “You think too much. You originally had a chance to escape, but now it’s gone.”
“Boy, I know you are capable. Even the Dragon Ancestor was defeated by you.
“But it’s different this time. This formation is the treasure of the Ghost King Sect, which took me three days to set up at this site.
“Now the formation has been activated. Even if you are an immortal, you can only kneel down…”
While Li Tianxing was speaking arrogantly a red brick suddenly appeared in Qin Haodong’s hand. Then, with a flash of red light, Qin Haodong flung the brick with all his might.
With a cracking sound, the formation Li Tianxing had carefully set up for three days was broken in an instant. For a time, the clouds parted, the sun rose, and the ghostly aura dissipated. The surroundings were as clear as before.
Li Tianxing was stunned. He had never thought that the most powerful formation of the Ghost King Sect would be so easily broken by Qin Haodong.
Qin Haodong said lightly, “What else do you have? Just show me.”
He was now a master second only to those people at the stage of the Tribulation Realm, the most powerful person in this continent, so he naturally did not take the sect master of the Ghost King Sect seriously.
“Boy, I’ll kill you!”
The sect master of Ghost King Sect was furious and embarrassed. He turned his Genuine Qi into a huge ghost claw and grabbed at Qin Haodong.
He was also a master at the peak of the Grand Completion Realm. His Netherworld Ghost Claw with its overwhelming momentum made the people around feel breathless.
Unfortunately, his opponent was Qin Haodong. The Xuan Yuan Sword flashed with its golden light and instantly turned the ghost claw into nothingness.
Then, the Xuan Yuan Sword didn’t stop at all and the Sword Qi shot fiercely into Li Tianxing’s lower abdomen.
Li Tianxing flew several dozen meters away before spewing out a mouthful of blood and his body plummeted to the ground.
Fortunately, Niu Cuihua had been following their fight attentively. She hastily caught Li Tianxing and pulled him into her embrace.
“You… you… you actually disabled my cultivation!?”
Li Tianxing had a fierce look and his eyes were filled with hatred. Regretfully, he no longer had his previous momentum.
Although Qin Haodong did not kill him, the sword directly broke his dantian. His whole cultivation had been disabled by Qin Haodong. He was no different from an ordinary person.
Qin Haodong said coldly, “Your Ghost King Sect has done so many evil things over the years but I won’t kill you for Cuihua’s sake.”
“You… I’ll fight it out with you!”
Li Tianxing used to be an ambitious tyrant and had been able to escape from the encirclement of the four kingdoms. But today, his cultivation had been disabled. This was hard for him to accept.
Because he had no cultivation, he was even weaker than a baby in Niu Cuihua’s arms. He couldn’t even struggle to free himself, let alone pose a threat to Qin Haodong.
Qin Haodong took two steps forward, looked at him sharply, and said, “Tell me the secret of the Black Demon Pearls. Otherwise, I will kill you.”
Although Li Tianxing didn’t give any information about the Black Demon Pearls, the seven Black Demon Pearls seemed to have something to do with the space loophole judging from the meaning of his words. Thus, Qin Haodong had to figure it out.
Li Tianxing was a hegemon after all. He snapped, “Dream on! I’d rather die than tell you!”
If this was related to any other matter, Qin Haodong could let him go. However, it was about the opening of the space loophole. Qin Haodong wouldn’t back down under any circumstances.
He said with a murderous look, “Li Tianxing, I’ll give you one last chance. Tell me or else.”
Niu Cuihua also knew the importance of the space loophole to Qin Haodong. She quickly cried, “Brother, what’s the secret? Tell Haodong quickly.”
“I won’t tell you. Never. Kill me if you can!”
Li Tianxing was an ambitious man. Because his cultivation was disabled, he was disheartened and didn’t care about his own life.
Qin Haodong frowned. His killing intent became stronger. At this moment, Cao Yuhuan nearby shouted, “Don’t kill him. I’ll tell you!”
Qin Haodong turned his head and asked, “Are you sure you know what it is?”
“Of course. I know more about this matter than the sect master does. I told him about this.” Cao Yuhuan begged. “As long as you let us go, I’ll tell you everything.”
Qin Haodong’s expression eased a lot. “Killing you wouldn’t do me any good. I’ll let you go if you tell me the secret.”
Li Tianxing gnashed his teeth and shouted, “Yuhuan, don’t tell him. Qin Haodong destroyed our Ghost King Sect and my cultivation. You can’t tell him even if he kills us.”
“Enough!” Cao Yuhuan glared at Li Tianxing and shouted, “For so many years, what else do you have in your heart besides your ambition and the Ghost King Sect?
“For the sake of your ambition, you have no regard for anything else. For your ambition, you can even force me to become the queen of Dragon Kingdom.
“But what happened in the end? What did you get? Don’t you realize the truth?”
The light in Li Tianxing’s eyes slowly died down because of Cao Yuhuan’s words. He lowered his head and didn’t say anything else.
Cao Yuhuan turned back and said, “Ask me. I will tell you everything.”
Qin Haodong said, “What is the use of these seven Black Demon Pearls? What does it have to do with the space loophole?”
Cao Yuhuan said, “To tell you the truth, the Black Demon Pearls can break the seal of the space loophole.”
Qin Haodong was shocked and cried, “What? How is that possible? Is it said that the sleeping God of Demon underground will be resurrected if the seven Black Demon Pearls are gathered together?”
Cao Yuhuan shook her head and said, “My mother was one of the few successors of the Alien Demon. I have the bloodline of the Alien Demon. Therefore, I know the secret of the Black Demon Pearls very well.
“The tale about the resurrection of the God of Demon was fake. It was just a gimmick. The real purpose was to open up this space loophole.
“As long as the seal here was broken and the space loophole was opened, the Alien Demon could enter another space. It was said that the people on the other side of the space loophole were far less powerful than those on the Lingwu Continent. If the Alien Demon could go to that space, the Alien Demon would inevitably become the most powerful beings there, which meant that they would be reborn.
“In those days, when the Spiritual Qi of the Lingwu Continent was revived, the Alien Demon was in imminent danger. The Alien Demon Emperor spent a lot of effort to make these seven Black Demon Pearls. His purpose was to open the space loophole and escape with his men.
“It was a pity that he was still a step too late and all the people of the Alien Demon were killed by the masters from the Seven Families of the Lingwu Continent.
“The purpose of our Ghost King Sect to get these seven Black Demon Pearls was also to leave the Lingwu Continent and go to another space to be the overlord there.”
Qin Haodong broke out in a cold sweat because of this news. Whether it was the Alien Demon in the past or the current Ghost King Sect, once they reached the earth through the space loophole, the consequences would be unimaginable.
After all, Emperor Xuan Yuan and Chiyou were no longer on earth. The current people on earth did not even have the ability to defeat the remaining descendants of the Alien Demon, let alone the real Alien Demon Emperor and his men on the Lingwu Continent.
However, the bad news now heralded something good for him. These seven Black Demon Pearls could help him open the way home.
He asked, “Do you know how to use these seven Black Demon Pearls to open the space loophole?”
“Of course. I can help you break through the seal. However, you must promise me one thing.”
Qin Haodong said eagerly, “What’s your condition? I’ll give you whatever you want.”
Right now, he urgently needed to return home. Even if Cao Yuhuan wanted him to help Li Tianxing regain his cultivation, he would agree.
Cao Yuhuan said, “After I help you open the space loophole, I hope you can agree to give us our Ghost King Sect a place to live. Then, Tianxing, the people of the Ghost King Sect and I can enjoy the rest of our lives there.
“Please rest assured. We will really stay in hiding and will not step into the Lingwu Continent again this time.”
Qin Haodong had no intention of killing them, so he said, “Okay.”
He was the owner of the entire Lingwu Continent now, so that request was not a big deal to him.
“Well, I’ll help you break through the seal now. Give me the seven Black Demon Pearls.”
Without any hesitation, Qin Haodong raised his hand and threw out the seven Black Demon Pearls.
Cao Yuhuan reached out and caught these pearls. When they were in Cao Yuhuan’s hand, they instantly erupted into streams of black light. It turned out that these Black Demon Pearls refined by the Alien Demon Emperor could only be activated by the blood of Alien Demon.
Cao Yuhuan waved her hand. Then, the seven Black Demon Pearls flew out and were embedded into the edge of the space loophole.
“Open!” she shouted.
Then, the seven Black Demon Pearls began to glow. A loud bang rang out from the space loophole and the originally unbreakable seal was finally opened!
