Book 6: Chapter 081: The Peac.o.c.k Races Calamity
The Six Paths Veritable Lord had issued a bounty.
When he issued the bounty, it caused a worldwide commotion. All the major sects started searching. Practically the entire world chased after these demons that appeared out of nowhere.
Gu Hai put on a simple disguise and continued flying towards the peac.o.c.k races territory when things calmed down.
Peac.o.c.k Deity Hall:
A group of peac.o.c.k race elders went to meet the Peac.o.c.k Prime, bringing various portraits.
When they entered the hall, the twenty elders looked at the nearby azure-robed man clad in azure light. This was Kong Xuan.
This! Thats right! Its him! one of the elders exclaimed as he looked at a painting in his hands.
Prime, the Six Paths Veritable Lord placed a bounty on a group of demons. He is among them! Prime! the elders exclaimed.
Cough! Cough! Cough! Cough! the Peac.o.c.k Prime coughed.
The elders immediately felt anxious, no longer thinking about the reward. Instead, they looked at the prime worriedly.
Prime, youwhy did you suddenly age so much? You werent like this yesterday! an elder said, horrified.
Many more wrinkles had appeared on the Peac.o.c.k Prime. Age spots dotted his skin, and the characteristic smell of the elderly was more pungent. It looked like he could go at any moment.
Plop! The twenty elders dropped to their knees.
Prime, why are you like this? The elders burst into tears.
Dont cry. This old man is happy. I finally can reincarnate in peace! The old man smiled gently.
Prime, this should not be the case! This should not be the case! Shouldnt there be a few more days?! Shouldnt you last a few more days! the elders said in fear.
All of you are here; this is the best. Listen to me. From today on, I pa.s.s my position on to him, Kong Xuan. He is the peac.o.c.k races new prime! the old man said weakly.
What? Prime, you cant! This person is of unknown origins. Furthermore, the Six Paths Veritable Lord set a bounty on him, refusing to back off until he dies. How can you hand the peac.o.c.k race to him?! one of the elders protested in shock while glaring.
He is my descendant! the old man said weakly.
Huh? Everyones face sank.
If I hand the peac.o.c.k deity to you, it would take at least three years for you to merge it into your body. That would be too longsimply too longso I pa.s.sed it to Kong Xuan. He is now the prime! the old man said weakly.
How can this be?! How can this be?! Prime, we The elders felt incredibly anxious.
Listen to me. Let me die a peaceful death! the old man said as he slowly took his last breath.
Everyone howled while crying.
Suddenly, the azure light coming from Kong Xuans body withdrew and gave off a miserable cry.
The lament spread in all directions. All the peac.o.c.ks in the world heard this miserable cry. This was the cry of the peac.o.c.k deity.
The voice of the peac.o.c.k deity could reach all peac.o.c.ks.
The expressions of countless peac.o.c.ks changed.
The peac.o.c.k deity is crying sorrowfully. Prime died? No!
Sob! Sob! Sob! Sob! Prime!
Starting from the Peac.o.c.k Deity Hall, countless peac.o.c.ks knelt, wailing in grief. They felt like they had lost their support.
At the same time, outside Peac.o.c.k Deity Island, where Peac.o.c.k Deity Hall was, a group of black-clad men coldly monitored Peac.o.c.k Deity Island.
That old thing died? He died pretty early. Inform Master! Prepare to take action! a black-robed man said.
The black-robed men soared into the sky and flew off.
In the Peac.o.c.k Deity Hall:
Kong Xuan sat cross-legged. After chatting through the night, the old prime had wanted to hand the old peac.o.c.k deity to him.
Kong Xuan had not hesitated, immediately agreeing.
A humongous peac.o.c.k deity had immediately flown out of the old primes forehead and into Kong Xuans forehead.
There was a peac.o.c.k deity in Kong Xuans forehead already. However, the deity in Kong Xuans forehead was smaller.
One large deity and one small deity.
The two deities looked at each other.
The large deity said, Given this, will I be destroyed soon? A wisp of my divine nature remained in the peac.o.c.ks and reformed a new deity eight hundred thousand years later?
The small deity nodded. You are the true body, and I am the clone. Unfortunately, I am connected to Kong Xuan. If I get destroyed, he will be injured.
The large deity remained silent for a while.
The two deities faced each other in silence. After a while, the large deity sensed the old prime dying and evinced fl.u.s.ter on its face.
A loud, sorrowful cry rang out. All the peac.o.c.ks in the world heard it.
Never mind. If Im destined to fall, I might as well merge into you. After all, you are formed by my divine nature. Eat me. Hurry! the large deity said coldly.
The small deity opened its mouth and swallowed the large deity.
However, the large deitys divine nature was overly vast. It would be difficult to digest it immediately after swallowing it.
Coo! The small deity howled in pain.
Ill help you! Kong Xuans voice suddenly rang out.
A surging demonic aura poured into the small deity. Kong Xuan did his best to help the small deity to refine the large deity.
A surging demonic aura also poured out of Kong Xuans body once again. As the peac.o.c.k race elders wept in sorrow, they looked at Kong Xuan with unsightly expressions.
All of these elders wanted to be the next prime. However, the person before them s.n.a.t.c.hed the position away first.
Kong Xuan? I dont know him. How can he be the primes descendant?
The Six Paths Veritable Lord set a bounty on him, wanting his death. Wont he bring a calamity to my peac.o.c.k race?
No! The peac.o.c.k deity is in his hands. We need to take it back!
Stop! Are you thinking of disobeying the primes wish? Are you going to rebel the moment prime dies?
The twenty elders argued for a long time but could not come to a conclusion.
Deal with Primes funeral first. We can discuss this later! a man of few words said sullenly.
Yes, First Elder! The elders nodded.
The first elder looked at Kong Xuan with a complicated expression.
Then, the elders turned away to give the other peac.o.c.ks instructions.
A loud noise came from outside.
Who is it?
How dare you?!
Who are you?!
Countless peac.o.c.ks roared ferociously.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Loud reports came from outside. The elders rushed out of the Peac.o.c.k Deity Hall and were shocked to discover towering pillars surrounding Peac.o.c.k Deity Island. The pillars seemed to form a large ritual array, trapping Peac.o.c.k Deity Island in the middle.
Break the barrier! the peac.o.c.ks roared ferociously.
The prime just died, and someone immediately dared to cause trouble at Peac.o.c.k Deity Island?
A peac.o.c.k flew to the barrier, wanting to tear it apart.
A giant toad spirit appeared and swallowed that peac.o.c.k.
It swallowed the Mao City Peac.o.c.k King! Kill it!
How dare you create trouble at Peac.o.c.k Deity Island?! You are seeking death!
Many peac.o.c.ks charged forward.
The expressions of the twenty elders standing at the Peac.o.c.k Deity Halls entrance changed.
Toad Demon? Didnt the Solar Divine Palace destroy it? an elder said, shocked.
As many peac.o.c.ks charged forward, more ferocious beasts rushed into the ritual array.
Roar! Roar! Roar!
All the peac.o.c.ks who charged forward got swallowed or torn apart.
A peac.o.c.k elders expression changed as he swung out a beam of five-colored divine light.
The five-colored divine light bloodied Toad Demon and flung it away. However, it did not die. Many other animal spirit kings rushed into the ritual array.
The peac.o.c.k race? Hahahahaha! You are only so-so! the animal spirit kings guffawed ferociously.
The surrounding peac.o.c.ks continued charging forward. The first elders face sank. Stop!
The first elder stopped the peac.o.c.ks. He scanned the vicinity sullenly. More animal spirit kings appeared, surrounding and trapping them on Peac.o.c.k Deity Island.
Humph! You are just a bunch of rabble. Do you know that Peac.o.c.k Deity Island is the center of my peac.o.c.k race? There are many strong peac.o.c.ks on this island. Do you think you can do as you please here? Everyone, are you planning to remain here forever? the first elder said with a cold expression.
Suddenly, a loud crows cry rang out in the sky, and what looked like a sun charged down. It moved very quickly, arriving before the first elder in an instant.
What? The elders expressions changed.
The expert that charged over, radiating a ferocious aura, arrived above the first elders head in nearly an instant. Three golden claws reached down, poised to crush the first elders head.
Five-colored divine light! the first elder cried out, extending his right arm as his expression changed dramatically.
The three golden claws tore apart the first elders five-color divine light. Then, they landed on his outstretched arm.
The claws pulled hard, ripping off the first elders right arm. Blood spurted everywhere.
Five-colored divine light!
The other nineteen elders had to attack together before they managed to push back the expert.
Master! the invading beasts greeted respectfully.
After having one arm torn off, the first elder showed pain on his face. However, he did not scream. Instead, he clutched the stump and gazed at the master of the ferocious beasts in horror.
It was a gigantic three-legged golden crow.
The Eastern Monarch, the Supreme Singularity?! the first elder exclaimed in shock as sweat poured down his forehead.
The three-legged golden crow took on the Supreme Singularitys appearance. Then, he said with a cold smile, That old thing has already died. Where is the peac.o.c.k deity?
Supreme Singularity, are you trying to s.n.a.t.c.h the peac.o.c.k deity? Back then, Prime spared your life. To think you want to requite mercy with revenge? the first elder said with hatred.
Requite mercy with revenge? Humph! That old thing injured me back then. Now is the time for revenge. Super peac.o.c.k deity? It is indeed a great threat. A six-colored divine light able to cut anything? Humph! There is no need for the peac.o.c.k race to continue existing in this world! the Supreme Singularity said coldly.
What did you say? The first elders expression suddenly changed. You arrived so quickly. Youyou were waiting for Prime to die?
It looks like you are not that stupid. Hand over the peac.o.c.k deity, and I can spare the peac.o.c.k bloodline. Otherwise, I will exterminate the peac.o.c.k race, not sparing a single one, and drive it to extinction! the Supreme Singularity said ferociously.
