Chapter 335 - Sun Chariot Engravings
Zhong Yue walked out of the boat’s cabin and was all smiles as he said, “Senior Martial Brother Tu Jiang, please!”
Tu Jiang walked across the river and boarded the boat, he smiled in a very gentle manner, “Thank you, Mister Mo Luo. I never thought that I could actually have a look at the Dance of the Sixteen Heavenly Demons in my life. Mister Mo Luo is very lucky to have so many women.”
Zhong Yue laughed and invited him to have a seat, “Senior Martial Brother Tu Jiang is overly praising me.”
Tu Jiang sat down and enjoyed the dance, clapping and praising the dancers. This middle-aged man had four arms, his clappings were loud and rythymic, and yet, he never spoke of a word of his intentions.
He didn’t say, and Zhong Yue didn’t ask.
After some time, the dance had finally finished, Zhong Yue waved his hands, and Tian Mo Concubine immediately understood his meaning. She ordered Ji Xiang Concubine and the other court ladies to leave and rest.
Light flashed across Tu Jiang’s eyes, he laughed softly and said, “Demon Saint selected many imperial concubines from the demon race. We of the Asura Saint Clan were unwilling to do so, but Demon Saint is too strong, we have no choice but to do as he said. But in fact, there are many higher-ups in the saint clans who raised their voices and opposed the revival of Demon Saint.”
Zhong Yue nodded, he asked directly to the point, “So, the saint clans want to use me to kill Demon Saint?”
Tu Jiang laughed, he said, “Demon Saint is the ancestor of the demon race, how will the Asura Saint Clan ever kill our own ancestor? That’s just what you’ve said, they are not my wods. But … the Asura Saint Clan can clear some obstacles along the way for mister.”
Zhong Yue was intrigued, he asked, “What kind of obstacles do you mean?”
Tu Jiang smiled gently, he said, “The saint clan can take care of the loyal followers of Demon Saint and get them out of your way. After all, Demon Saint is the common ancestor of the whole demon race, he still has quite a few loyal followers, including some of the stronger existences of the demon race.”
Zhong Yue shook his head and said, “Too little, Senior Martial Brother Tu Jiang didn’t come in sincerity I see.”
The smile on Tu Jiang’s face turned stern as he asked, “And what exactly is mister asking for?”
Zhong Yue then called his price, “The saint lady of the Asura Saint Clan, I’ve admired her for a very long time, not a single day and night I’ve thought of her, and if a beauty like her is not sleeping by my side, I will never be able to have a good night’s sleep….”
Tu Jiang declined right away, “Impossible! Mister, I suggest you ask for something else instead!”
Zhong Yue frowned, he then said unwillingly, “If it’s not the saint lady, then I will have the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】. I want the Asura Saint Clan’s【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】in the Asura Saint race, I need to know of Demon Saint’s cultivation techniques and his skills.”
Tu Jiang’s eyelids thumped rapidly, Zhong Yue started off asking for the Asura Saint Clan’s saint lady and he declined straight up. If he declined Zhong Yue for the second time, it would be too overboard and he couldn’t help but think that Zhong Yue would suspect the sincerity of the Asura Saint Clan in forming an alliance.
However, Asura Saint Clan’s【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】was the highest secret of their race, how could it ever be imparted to an outsider?
This brat will kill Demon Saint and after that, the other demons will kill him in order to ‘avenge’ Demon Saint. So, we will have no worries even if we have imparted the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】to him.
Lights flashed in Tu Jiang’s eyes. The Demon Saint was regarded too highly among the demon races, and was even granted the title of the ‘saint’. No matter which race killed him, it would have to face the risk of complete annihilation from the revenge of the other seven races. Hence, the saint clans couldn’t do the dirty work themselves, and only an outsider was suitable. Even if Zhong Yue killed Demon Saint, the Asura Saint Clan could then kill Zhong Yue afterwards and stop their【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】being leaked to outsiders.
Thoughts turned quickly in Tu Jiang’s mind and he heaved a deep breath. He then said with a smile, “I wonder if Mister Mo Luo has an interest in visiting our saint clan? I can persuade my leader to impart the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】to you.”
Zhong Yue shook his head and noted, “I still have to wait for Demon Saint here.”
“Demon Saint will not come, he will not appear before he fully turn Yanluo Mo’s mortal body into his own.” Tu Jiang laughed and said, “If he ever appears, the Asura Saint Clan will notify mister in the first second.”
Zhong Yue looked at Tian Mo Concubine and she whispered to him, “Most likely true.”
Zhong Yue laughed and stood up, he said, “Then, will I meet with Asura’s saint lady?”
Tu Jiang’s heart skipped a beat, he forced a laugh and answered, “The Saint Concubine doesn’t accept guests.”
He then walked out of the boat and waved his hand to summon an Asura Qi Practitioner, whispered a command in the latter’s ears, and that Qi Practitioner ran away. Not long after, a huge ship sailed toward them on the demonic river. It was thousand feet tall and carved with sun totem patterns and Golden Crow patterns; there were hundreds of Asura Qi Practitioners on the boat, powering it so that it could sail.
Tu Jiang said with a smile, “Mister, please!”
Tian Mo Concubine, Ji Xiang Concubine, and the court ladies accompanied Zhong Yue as they boarded the Sun Ship. The ship floated into the sky, the sun lights blazed on the ship, and it shot away toward its destination.
Zhong Yue was in awe. He had the sun spirit and he could tell that this ship wasn’t simple. It had powered up the sun totem pattern and the Golden Crow totem patterns, and they were of very high grades.
“We of the Asura Saint Clan are a Heavenly Demon Godly Saint Clan. We once had an ancestor, a god with the Sun Innate Spirit Body who resided in the sun. These sun totem patterns and the Golden Crow totem patterns were left behind by that heavenly demon god of ours,” Tu Jiang said as he smiled proudly.
Zhong Yue heard this and studied the ship carefully. Some of these sun totem patterns and the Golden Crow totem patterns were fused with part of the demon race’s arts. These totem patterns were abstruse and obscure, hard for the others to comprehend. Bbut that was not the same for him; after all, his spirit was also the Great Sun Golden Crow, and that allowed him to easily understand them!
This heavenly demon god’s understandings of the Great Sun Golden Crow were stronger, deeper, and more complete than his. After all, the demon god had the Sun Innate Spirit Body. However, Zhong Yue looked at them for a few moments and determined that this huge ship was merely a counterfeit version made by the Asuras, rather than the true ship forged by that heavenly demon god himself. Some of the totem patterns were mixed with the demon race’s arts, making them impure and less marvelous.
If only I can have a look at the true Sun Ship or the body of this Sun Innate Spirit Body god, then that would be great!
Lights flashed across Zhong Yue’s eyes as he thought, The Sun Innate Spirit Body is incredibly strong, only weaker than a Saint Spirit. This heavenly demon god must have had an appalling understanding of his sun spirit, and that is far more helpful to me than the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】! However, will the Asura Saint Clan allow me to change the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】I asked for with a chance to look at this heavenly demon god’s spirit?
The Sun Ship flew at great speed, and after several weeks, it finally reached the Asura Saint Clan’s territory, the Sun Saint City, and they set down.
Above the city was a scorching red sun, burning in flame! It wasn’t the true sun, but the inner core of a demon god!
Zhong Yue was struck with awe while Tu Jiang said with a smile, “This inner core is exactly that heavenly demon god’s inner core, he forged it into a treasure and placed it as a sun.”
Zhong Yue inhaled a breath of deep air. He was now even more attracted to the heritage of this Asura’s heavenly demon god. Even the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】 placed second after it.
Tu Jiang then arranged for places to stay for Zhong Yue and the ladies, and told them with a smile, “I will now see the elders and convince them to accept your request, you will be able to learn our race’s【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】.”
Zhong Yue nodded agreement, and Tu Jiang left.
“What? He wants to learn our race’s greatest cultivation technique? This is absolutely out of the question! No, I do not agree to it!”
In the palace, the face of one of the elders changed drastically after Tu Jiang told them about the request, his voice was even distorted with anger, “Our race’s greatest cultivation technique is engraved on the divine weapon Sun Chariot, how can an outsider be allowed to look at it?”
Tu Jiang refuted with a frigid smile, “After he kills Demon Saint, we will then kill him; everything will be taken care of and the cultivation technique will also not fall into the hands of an outsider.”
The elder then chided, “Demon Saint is our ancestor, the demon spirit we all worship together, why are we killing him? Let alone helping an outsider to kill him, what is this!?”
Tu Jiang then said, “When Demon Saint becomes the demon god again, he will unite the Eighth Barren and the great Asura Saint Clan will have to follow his commands! What’s good in it for us? He is not an Asura! My great leader, are you ready to be commanded? Are you willing to resign yourself to the Demon Saint?”
The Asura Saint Clan’s leader mulled for a few moments and said, “The Asura Saint Clan will grant him his wish, he will be allowed to gain the arts on the Sun Chariot, but after his work is finished, he will have to be eradicated, killed, and our arts not left in the hands of others.”
Tu Jiang was overjoyed, he praised his lord, “The leader is wise and sagacious!”
He then walked away and left to meet Zhong Yue.
He quickly threaded his way to Zhong Yue and said with a smile, “Mister, please follow me!”
Zhong Yue looked at the ladies and Tu Jiang immediately shook his head, he said, “The【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】of our race is engraved on the divine weapon Sun Chariot, outsiders aren’t allowed to be anywhere close to it.”
Tian Mo Concubine exclaimed in shock, “Senior Martial Brother Tu Jiang, is your Asura Saint Clan really willing to give him the chance to study the Sun Chariot? The Asura Saint Clan is really paying a hefty price!”
Zhong Yue was puzzled, he said, “Aren’t the carvings on the Sun Chariot from the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】? Just like the one you have imparted to me, aren’t they of the same technique, what is there to be surprised about?”
“Different, it is very different! The carvings on the Sun Chariot are way more abstruse and greater than the ones I’ve taught you! The Asura Saint Clan’s ancestor was a heavenly demon god, the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】he cultivated was way deeper than mine. The one engraved on the Sun Chariot contains the demon god’s understandings on the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】, and some of them are demon god-level totem patterns!”
Tian Mo Concubine was envious as she continued, “The【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】he attained is engraved on his divine weapon, the Sun Chariot, hence, it is also known as the Sun Chariot Engravings. Learning directly from the Sun Chariot is only a fine line weaker than being directly taught by Demon Saint, just like my Raksha Saint Clan’s Godly Radiation Stone Engravings.”
“Radiation Stone Engravings?”
Tian Mo Concubine then said, “When the Demon Saint died back in the day, the Raksha Saint Clan attained the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】from observing at his corpse. The ancestor of the Raksha Saint Clan ascended to the level of gods and before his death, he turned his demon inner core into the Godly Radiation Stone. Engraved on it was the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】. But don’t you think too much, the Raksha Saint Clan will never allow you to study the Godly Radiation Stone.”
“Well, this is hard to say. Don’t forget, I’m now your lover, also considered as part of the Raksha Saint Clan.” Zhong Yue laughed loudly and walked away with Tu Jiang.
Tian Mo Concubine’s countenance changed drastically, and she walked in circles anxiously, stomping her feet on the ground as she thought, If the Asura Saint Clan is willing to let him study the Sun Chariot Engravings, then why wouldn’t the Raksha Saint Clan open the Godly Radiation Stone Engravings to him when they see us together? They will surely think that this is a good chance to rope him into the Raksha Saint Clan, but they didn’t know he is not a demon but a human … he must not survive to return to the Great Wilderness!
Zhong Yue followed Tu Jiang. Along the way, there were mountains and rivers, the sun dangled high in the sky and its rays shone down like a pillar of fire into the mountains, reaching to the summit of the highest mountain, where a marvelous war chariot was waiting. The war chariot was miles long, dazzling lit with golden rays and looked very stunning.
“That is the Sun Chariot.”
Tu Jiang said smilingly, “The carvings on the Sun Chariot were left behind by the Asura ancestor, they are his understandings on the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiation Art】.”
Zhong Yue looked at it from afar and saw a demon god standing in the chariot, he asked puzzlingly, “And that demon god is?”
“His spirit, the Asura Saint Clan’s guardian. After he forged the Sun Chariot, he has rested inside of it.”
Tu Jiang smirked and said, “His spirit is the innate spirit of the sun, containing another great cultivation technique of the demon race —【Great Sun Heavenly Demon Art】. If mister has the Sun Innate Spirit Body, you might just be able to attain it. Hahahaha!
I’m just joking around, I hope you won’t mind.”
“It's fine, it's fine,” Zhong Yue answered with a smile.
Also, chapters will come out whenever possible for now, so, keep track on the number count.
