Chapter 289: Mystique Rank Demon Wolf
The Grand Supreme Rank was something that only appeared in legends. It was a level that they could only dream of reaching. Their only brush against it was in the rumors about ranks for humans, where it was said that the levels above Tenth Level were the Earthly Venerable Rank, the Heavenly Venerable Rank, Mystique Venerable Rank, Godly Venerable Rank, and finally Peerless Power. As for mystical beasts, what came after the Tenth Level was Earthly Adept Rank, Heavenly Adept Rank, Mystique Adept Rank, Daemon King Rank, and Grand Supreme Rank.
A Grand Supreme Celestial or Mystical Beast was equivalent to a person at the level of Peerless Power. It was a rank that was even higher than the Godly Venerable Rank!
“Your Highness, Daemon Kings are naturally more powerful than Mystique Venerable Rank combatants.” Nie Qingyun lowered his voice and said cautiously. He was also a little frightened.
Little Wingsy had been lagging behind, so Nie Qingyun and Great Emperor Mingwu did not know much about him. They just knew that Little Wingsy’s knowledge was still that of a child’s. However, in terms of strength and physical power, he should have already reached Daemon King Rank.
Therefore, Nie Qingyun was extremely respectful and humble towards Little Wingsy.
“What’s to fear about them if they’re lower than Daemon King Rank? If anybody from their sect dares to challenge us I’ll just beat them up!” Little Wingsy raised his fists and huffed. He glanced at Xie Dao and Xie Jian.
Xie Dao and Xie Jian’s legs weakened at Little Wingsy’s glance, almost as if they had encountered some terrifying being. This little boy was already a Daemon King. Even the Daemon Fire Sect could not stand up to him. They no longer had anyone to back them up.
It seemed like Little Wingsy and Ye Chen had not encountered a Grand Supreme Rank combatant yet either. Nie Qingyun and Great Emperor Mingwu glanced at each other. Little Wingsy was the type to speak rashly. From his words, they obtained information that gave them a bit of confidence.
Little Wingsy clenched his fists and marched up to Xie Dao and Xie Jian. He was prepared to beat them up violently.
Although there was no doubt that Xie Dao and Xie Jian would be defeated, Ye Chen was worried that an accident might happen. He flew towards Little Wingsy’s direction and had advanced several dozen meters when he suddenly sensed a Psyche scouting the area.
Ye Chen frowned. There were Celestial Beasts here as well?
He snorted coldly and released his own Astral Body.
The Psyche quivered in fright after touching Ye Chen’s Astral Body and quickly shrunk back.
Ye Chen’s Astral Body chased after it all the way to a woodland hundreds of meters away. In the thick grass was a giant wolf with fiery red fur. The giant wolf was as tall as a person and looked extremely sturdy.
The giant wolf felt Ye Chen’s Astral Body sweep over it and immediately lay on the ground, trembling in fright.
It did not expect to meet a Daemon King here. That strength was not inferior to the three Wolf Kings. It was almost frightened to death. If Ye Chen decided to kill it, it would not have any chance of survival. It was impossible to try and escape from a Daemon King! Now, it could only lie down obediently and wait for the Daemon King’s actions.
Seeing the demon wolf lie prone on the ground, Ye Chen frowned.
This was a Mystique Adept Rank Celestial Beast!
What was a Mystique Adept Rank demon wolf doing here? Could it be that the Wolven Kingdom decided it wanted to be in the war between the Xiwu Empire and the Nanman Kingdom? Or did the Wolven Kingdom simply send this demon wolf to take a look at the situation?
If it was the former, then Ye Chen would not know what to do. However, if it was the latter, then that made things easier.
“Where are you from?” Ye Chen’s Astral Body passed the message.
“Your Highness, I’m from the Wolven Kingdom.” The demon wolf spoke the human language and said respectfully.
“Is the Wolven Kingdom preparing to intervene in the war between the Nanman Kingdom and the Xiwu Empire?” Ye Chen asked. Although he had some encounters with the Wolven Kingdom, he would never take the initiative to provoke the Wolven Kingdom before he grew strong enough. However, if the Wolven Kingdom wanted to attack the Xiwu Empire, it would be a different story.
“No, Your Highness, the Wolven Kingdom isn’t planning to interfere in the war between the Nanman Kingdom and the Xiwu Empire. However, the Nanman Kingdom and the Xiwu Empire are inside the Wolven Kingdom’s sphere of influence, so the three Wolf Kings sent me to observe the war situation between the two countries. We did not expect to encounter Your Highness here.” The demon wolf did not dare to conceal anything and laid everything bare to Ye Chen. Its head was almost touching the ground. At this time, it was scared to death. Ye Chen could instantly crush its Psyche, and just one thought was enough to kill it. It could only hope that Ye Chen would spare it out on behalf of the three Wolf Kings.
“I’ve been living amongst the humans for several decades and have been staying inside the Xiwu Empire. I want to keep the Empire. I ask that the three Wolf Kings don’t interfere, otherwise I’ll certainly pay my respects to them some other day.” Ye Chen was silent for a long time. These words could be considered to be giving face to the Wolven Kingdom. After all, he was a Daemon King Ranked being!
“I’ll certainly convey Your Highness’s words to the three Wolf Kings.” The taut strings pulling the demon wolf’s heart suddenly relaxed at Ye Chen’s words. The Nanman Kingdom really was pitiful. They had planned to attack the Xiwu Empire for a long time, and when they finally did, they found that a Daemon King was hidden within their ranks. Was provoking a Daemon King not equivalent to courting death? It seemed like they had to knock some sense into Tuoba Hongye when they went back. They could not handle the Xiwu Empire.
“Alright, go.” Ye Chen retrieved his Astral Body. The demon wolf repeatedly kowtowed and thanked him before running away with its tail between its legs.
Seeing the demon wolf running, Ye Chen frowned. Once news of his appearance in the Capital City of the Xiwu Empire spread, the Nanman Kingdom would definitely stop attacking and retreat their army. The Grandruler of Nanman, Tuoba Hongye, was not an idiot. He knew who they could provoke and who they could not.
However, for the time being, the Xiwu Empire could not launch a counterattack on the Nanman Kingdom. Ye Chen could not fight, because the moment he did, his real strength would be exposed!
Temporarily stabilizing the situation would already be a very good turn of events for the Xiwu Empire.
“It seems like I can’t continue staying at the Xiwu Empire Capital City. How would the three Wolf Kings of the Wolven Kingdom sit still if they knew that there was a Daemon King in the Xiwu Empire? After all, the Xiwu Empire is in the territory of the Wolven Kingdom. They’ll definitely send someone to check. They might send a Daemon King Rank combatant personally or even the three Wolf Kings themselves! If I get caught up in the process and get exposed, the consequences would be dire.” Ye Chen frowned. He knew how powerful a Daemon King was. Even when facing the Leo King or the Wolf Kings of the Wolven Kingdom, Ye Chen did not dare to guarantee that he would not be caught. What if they decided to test their abilities against him?
Thus, hiding from them was the best option!
“I can’t stay in the Xiwu Empire. Where should I go?” Ye Chen frowned in thought. He suddenly thought of something. Why not go to the Central Empire to have a look?
With Ye Chen’s current strength, although he would not be considered the being with the highest power in the Central Empire, he would have no problems protecting himself. He could go to the Central Empire to increase his knowledge of the world. Perhaps his cultivation would improve more.
After making up his mind, Ye Chen decided to first finish things up here. He would have to return to the Ye Clan valley before going to the Central Empire.
Without enough strength, he could only err on the safe side.
“Sorry, Little Tanuki. I don’t have the strength to help you deal with the Wolven Kingdom yet.” Ye Chen thought of Little Tanuki with some guilt. The tanuki clan and the Wolven Kingdom could be regarded as enemies of each other, but Ye Chen could not do anything about it. When he went to the Central Empire this time, he could go searching for Little Tanuki’s clansmen. ‘They should still be alive, right?’
The forces in this world were very complicated. Even if he went to the Central Empire, he might not be able to avoid the people from the Wolven Kingdom. He would have to be more careful in the future.
Ye Chen kept his Astral Body and looked towards the direction Little Wingsy and the others were at.
Seeing Little Wingsy approach them, Xie Dao and Xie Jian had completely lost any heart to resist. This child was most likely a Daemon King Ranked combatant. It would be more than easy for him to kill them. The fact that he had not done anything yet meant that he was just toying with them. As for the one who materialized the gold-armored soldier earlier, that was most likely a Celestial Beast Daemon King. A Celestial Beast Daemon King’s Psyche could track them for hundreds of kilometers. How would they outrun him?
Run? They would end up with a fate worse than death!
A battle against two Daemon King Ranked combatants would end before it even began.
Xie Dao and Xie Jian looked at each other as if they had silently made a decision together.
Nie Qingyun and Great Emperor Mingwu thought that Xie Dao and Xie Jian would be making a final stand and was about to rush up with their weapons when they saw the two of them drop to their knees with a ‘thud’ and kowtowed desperately to Little Wingsy.
Xie Dao and Xie Jian’s actions shocked and baffled Nie Qingyun and Great Emperor Mingwu. Xie Dao and Xie Jian then suddenly spewed a torrent of words.
“Your Highness, we were blind not to see your splendor.”
“Your Highness, we really didn’t come to the Xiwu Empire voluntarily. It was those old coots in the sect that forced us to come.”
“We really didn’t know that we would meet Your Highness here!”
“Your Highness, please have mercy!”
“Please spare our pitiful lives.”
“Now that we know Your Highness is here, we wouldn’t dare to offend Your Highness even with guts of steel.”
Xie Dao and Xie Jian kept kowtowing, slamming their heads on the ground.
“If Your Highness wishes, we’re willing to leave the Daemon Fire Sect and serve Your Highness.”
“We’ll have absolute loyalty to Your Highness. Please take us in.”
“Even if Your Highness treats us like slaves, you will hear no complaints from us.”
Xie Dao and Xie Jian talked one after another. They broke out in cold sweat as they spoke for fear that Little Wingsy would be unhappy and kill them immediately. They were frightened to death and scolded the Grandruler of the Nanman Kingdom, Tuoba Hongye, in their hearts. If Tuoba Hongye had not insisted on attacking the Xiwu Empire, they would not have encountered two Daemon Kings so haplessly.
Little Wingsy was excited to beat the two of them but did not expect that Xie Dao and Xie Jian would suddenly kneel down before him. He grew a little overwhelmed hearing them say so many words. He could not just rush over and beat up two people kneeling on the ground. That would be too boring.
“Hey, just get up. We haven’t fought enough. Keep fighting.” Little Wingsy urged.
Xie Dao and Xie Jian almost cried at Little Wingsy’s words. Little Wingsy really was toying with them. Fight with him? That was the same as asking for death. Even the executioner’s sword could not cut Little Wingsy. It would not be a fight. It would just be a one-sided beat-down!
“We wouldn’t dare to fight with Your Highness. Please forgive us, Your Highness!” Xie Dao and Xie Jian continued to kowtow, knocking their heads louder than before.
