    Chapter 49: Two Arrogant Human Juniors

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    The demons and demon leader of Demon Mountain Camp looked at the horseback couple from afar.

    "At Green Tooth Mountain, it was a man and a woman couple that cleaved off the claw of Steadfast Mountain County's White Tiger. Hundreds of demons were unable to harm the male sword immortal at all." A demon whispered. The legend of the man and woman couple at Green Tooth Mountain had long been spread among the Grand Dominance County demons.

    "That man has a sword by his waist!" A lesser demon widened his green eyes as he pointed at the distant Qin Yun.

    "There is a sword."

    The demons' trepidation turned worse.

    With the strength of the Green Tooth Mountain couple, it would be committing suicide if they were to attack.

    "Ordinary mortals would not dare dream of taking a step into Water God's forbidden zone. They have to be cultivators! And it happens to be a man and a woman. That man also happens to use a sword. There's no way it's a coincidence. It's highly likely that they are the couple from Green Tooth Mountain." A mouse demon said as he stroked his beard. Just as his voice faded, Qin Yun and Yi Xiao, who were on horseback, suddenly leaped off their horses and began moving rapidly towards Demon Mountain Camp.

    Sou! Sou!

    "They are coming!" The demons panicked.

    "Stand guard. I'll report it to-" The thin demon leader failed to finish giving his orders.

    Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!

    The distant Yi Xiao stretched out her left hand gently as five-colored lightning suddenly appeared in her palm. They split into five bolts of lightning that traversed space, striking five demons! Although they were seven to eight hundred feet away, the Five-elemental Lightning Dharma's speed allowed the distance to be traverse nearly instantly. The thin demon leader had been struck by lightning before he finished his words.

    The other four lesser demons were burned to a crisp instantly, revealing their true forms. The demon leader's skin was charred and there was blood flowing profusely but he shouted, "Disperse!" He turned around and ran frantically.

    The demons fell into a momentary daze after the lightning strike. With the Divine Traversal Talisman Amulet, Qin Yun raised his speed and reached the entrance of the encampment.

    "Hua!"

    Qin Yun instantly drew his sword. The instant the sword was unsheathed, seven blurry sword shadows flashed. Seven demons surrounding him died instantly.

    The Intrinsic Flying Sword was immensely powerful. Despite being an eighth-grade Dharma treasure, Qin Yun was able to produce the strength as expected of a sixth-grade Dharma treasure. There was no need to use Misty Rain Sword Intent on the lesser demons, for a few simple sword beams were enough to vanquish them.

    "Phew! Phew! Phew..." Qin Yun was like a ghost as he flitted at speeds faster than the lesser demons. The fleeing demons collapsed one after another.

    "Boom! Boom! Boom!"

    Yi Xiao stuck the fleeing demons with Five-elemental Lightning Dharma.

    With their assault both short-ranged and long-ranged, it ended the lives of the twenty-plus demons in the encampment! The thin demon leader was also slewed by Qin Yun with one strike.

    "You should be proud of yourself. Your blood is the first enemy blood that stains my Intrinsic Flying Sword." Qin Yun looked at the charred demon leader that collapsed to the ground, revealing his true form to be a squirrel demon. As for the other lesser demons, they were all killed using sword beams! Only the demon leader had escaped death from the sword beams, which resulted in him being personally killed by the Intrinsic Flying Sword.

    "They have all been eliminated." Yi Xiao walked to Qin Yun's side.

    "Thankfully, there's Miss Yi's Five-elemental Lightning Dharma. With me only being able to engage in melee combat, a few might have escaped." Qin Yun said with a smile. He was ultimately unable to be everywhere at once. All he could do for now was engage in melee combat. Only by mastering sword kinesis was he able to use his flying sword to kill enemies from a distance.

    "My Dharma Eyes indicate that there should be many humans here." Yi Xiao pointed into the encampment.

    "Let's take a look."

    Qin Yun went over.

    Under the Dharma Eyes, nothing could be concealed, so they easily found the humans imprisoned in the encampment. When Qin Yun slashed open the lock with a sword beam, they saw more than ten human women in tattered clothes. They were seized with terror as they shrunk themselves into a corner. Some only had weeds to cover their bodies. Qin Yun shook his head slightly. Following that, he opened three other cells.

    Two of the cells were occupied by women and the last one had men! The men were all tied up.

    "Phew! Phew! Phew!" The sword beams whistled through the air, swiftly cutting off the ropes that bound the men.

    "The demons are dead. All of you should leave," said Qin Yun.

    The men were overwhelmed with joy as they struggled to get up. Two managed to barely stand but the others were either too weak to move, or they would get up only to fall again.

    ...

    Inside the encampment, Qin Yun and Yi Xiao watched as the group of humans walked out from their cells. They prostrated themselves in exhilaration. "Immortals! Thank you for saving our lives!"

    All of them did so.

    "All of you should leave, leave as fast as possible. This place is forbidden zone by Water God after all." Qin Yun said as he waved his hand, throwing the water bags and food the demons had left behind to the humans.

    "Yes, yes!"

    The men and women hurriedly accepted. They picked up the bags of water and food, with some gulping large mouthfuls of water. Finally, they helped each other and departed.

    Qin Yun and Yi Xiao watched on.

    "The cultivating sects have made it clear that any entity that consumes humans are considered fiendish demons. They are not to be spared," said Yi Xiao.

    "Out of all the demons in the world, about seventy percent of them are fiendish demons." Qin Yun shook his head. There were good demons but from his travels, he knew that there were just too few good demons.

    "Lesser demons do not pose a threat." Yi Xiao's eyes turned sharp. "Once the great demon is eliminated, the lesser demons will only fear humans."

    "Let's go, time to vanquish the great demon." Qin Yun immediately leaped onto the top of a building in the encampment. With another leap, he swiftly reached the mountainside. Yi Xiao followed as well.

    The location of Water God's residence had been meticulously selected.

    The residence was constructed by the Langyang riverbank.

    And other than the rivers around the manor, there were many mountains surrounding it. Although it wasn't as vast as Green Tooth Mountain, it was majestic! It spanned more than five kilometers across. With the mountains, the demons could hide, deterring the human armies from attacking.

    Phew! Phew!

    Qin Yun and Yi Xiao quickly reached the mountain peak. Standing there, they could see into the distance. There was a roaring river in the valley and a majestic forested manor about three kilometers beside the river.

    "Brother Qin, I'm counting on you," Yi Xiao said with a smile.

    Qin Yun nodded. Standing on the mountaintop, he faced Water God Manor and shouted directly, "Water God, do you have the guts to fight me!?"

    The voice that was produced with Quintessential Essence sounded like rolling thunder as it reached Water God Manor.

    ...

    "Water God, do you have the guts to fight me!?" The distant voice resounded in Water God Manor. It made the demons and human women within exchange looks. Who dared to challenge Water God?

    In the manor surrounded by greenery, a white-robed Water God was standing with his hands behind his back as he looked into the distance. There was a mist of water obstructing him about three kilometers away. He could barely make out the two 'dots' in the distant mountaintop.

    "Interesting. They dare infiltrate my forbidden zone and wipe out the demons in the encampment? From what the Dual Modal Waterheart Array senses, the both of them have only knocked open the gate of immortality, juniors that are not yet in the Connate realm?" The corners of Water God's lips suffused a sneer. "What insolence."

    "Pangolin." Water God said.

    "Water god."

    Immediately, Pangolin rushed to Water God's side and obediently awaited his instructions.

    "Go. Investigate the two cultivators. Tell me what makes them dare provoke me?" Even against weak juniors that were not at the Connate realm, Water God would still do an initial reconnaissance.

    "Yes, Water God." Pangolin immediately headed deep into the ground and rapidly bored a tunnel out of Water God Manor.

    Moments later.

    In the meadow at the foot of a mountain, Pangolin peeked its head out to look towards the mountain peak where Qin Yun and Yi Xiao were.

    "It's them?" Pangolin was alarmed at what he saw. "It's that Qin Yun and Yi?"

    Three demonic slaves had once been killed by Qin Yun and Yi Xiao. Being the one that had reported the matter to Water God, Pangolin naturally recognized them at a glance.

    Phew.

    Pangolin immediately burrowed back into the ground and returned quickly.

    ...

    Soon, Pangolin was back in Water God Manor.

    "Water God, I have investigated and identified the two cultivators," Pangolin said respectfully. "It's that sword immortal named Qin Yun and that female cultivator, Yi. They are also the two from Green Tooth Mountain."

    "It's them?"

    Under Water God's long brows, his sinister cold eyes flashed a look of contempt. "Back at Green Tooth Mountain, they had spoiled my plans and cleaved off Junior Brother White Tiger's claw. I have been busy with my cultivation and have not sought revenge against them. Here they are, launching an assault at me? Do they think they are my match after injuring Junior Brother White Tiger?"

    "Two juniors that are not even at the Connate realm! Hmph!" Water God scoffed contemptuously.

    So what if they were from top sects?

    He himself came from one of the strongest factions in the fiendish demon world, Cloudfiend Mountain! Besides, more than two centuries had passed. Didn't the imperial government, Daoist and Buddhist sacred lands constantly want to rid him but when had they ever succeeded?

    "Their youth makes them think too highly of themselves!" Water God said casually, "I'll be out for a stroll. I'll also exterminate the two arrogant human juniors along the way."

    "Our cordial farewell to Water God."

    The demons and human women surrounding him shouted politely in unison.
