    Chapter 187: Dragon Queen

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    Outside Grand Dominance City, Patriarch Crocdragon was sitting cross-legged in a straw hut when he suddenly opened his eyes, his vertical pupils suffusing a dark-yellow color.

    "Swoosh."

    A projection of Patriarch Tenebrous Aspect appeared in midair in front of him. Patriarch Tenebrous Aspect was in humanoid form and dressed in a colorful robe, resembling a wealthy person.

    "What did you say? Qin Yun is in Qian Prefecture's Jia'an County?" Patriarch Crocdragon was not convinced.

    "Brother Crocdragon, come quickly. The earlier the better," urged Patriarch Tenebrous Aspect. "I'm currently in Jia'an County."

    "Brother Tenebrous Aspect, why are you suddenly so considerate? If you are there, shouldn't you be attacking?" questioned Patriarch Crocdragon with a chuckle.

    "You fool, you still don't believe me. Take a look yourself!" Patriarch Tenebrous Aspect transmitted the scene of the ongoing battle with his transmission treasure.

    The scene in front of Patriarch Crocdragon shifted to that of Matron Centaurea, Valley Lord Windhark, and Poison Dragon King's joint assault on Mt. Blue Granny, which was protected by a gigantic Cyclic Sword Flash barrier. One could vaguely make out a black-robed youth standing inside the barrier.

    "What? Centaurea and the rest are there too? The three of them are besieging him?" Patriarch Crocdragon saw everything.

    "Do you believe me now?" asked Patriarch Tenebrous Aspect.

    "Yes, yes. Brother Tenebrous Aspect, I'll rush there right away," said Patriarch Crocdragon immediately.

    "If it weren't for Qin Yun's impregnable flying sword arts, would I have informed you?" Patriarch Tenebrous Aspect pouted.

    "Don't worry. I won't forget what you did if I get any treasure," said Patriarch Crocdragon with a laugh.

    They had a deep friendship.

    When it came to a being as strong as Patriarch Crocdragon, be it the humans, demons, or Four Seas' Water race all around the world, there were few who would sincerely befriend him. Patriarch Tenebrous Aspect was one of those few! After all, the raising of Patriarch Tenebrous Aspect's cultivation realm might be slow but he was ultimately an ancient mutant. He would become more formidable and mystical in the future.

    "Swoosh."

    Patriarch Crocdragon came out of the straw hut.

    "Patriarch." Two streams of light flew over. One was a coquettish youth, Cave Lord Black Snake, and the other was a green-dressed woman. Both of them had extraordinary auras.

    "Qin Yun is currently in Qian Prefecture's Jia'an County. Let's quickly set off," said Patriarch Crocdragon. He deliberately picked these two subordinates because they were adept at different things. After all, he might have possessed great strength but he was not powerful in every aspect.

    "In the Qian Prefecture?"

    The two great fiendish demons exchanged looks and were somewhat surprised.

    "Let's go quickly," urged Patriarch Crocdragon.

    "Yes."

    Cave Lord Black Snake immediately transformed into a black snake which Patriarch Crocdragon and the green-dressed woman sat cross-legged on.

    Shoo!

    Black Snake instantly became a black stream of light that tore through the sky.

    ...

    High in the sky, Matron Centaurea, Poison Dragon King, and Valley Lord Windhark were attacking with all means available to them at full strength.

    Poison Dragon King was even forced to reveal his true form. As his black poison dragon body twirled in the sky, his claws and body slammed maniacally at Qin Yun's Cyclic Sword Flash barrier. But they still failed regardless of their combined might.

    "Count yourselves lucky."

    Qin Yun looked outside the Cyclic Sword Flash barrier at the black twirling poison dragon. "If I wasn't afraid of scaring off the other great fiendish demons, I would have already let all of you have a taste of my flying sword's might."

    "I'll tolerate it for a while and conceal some of my strength."

    "It is already well known that my flying sword arts are great at defending. Back in the Scenic Yang Immortal Abode, I used my flying sword art to obtain the Golden Core Cauldron by withstanding the Earth fire," thought Qin Yun. "But here, even if my flying sword art's defenses are good, it will only astonish any demons watching without being too ridiculous."

    "If I were to kill one or two fiendish demons outright, it'd probably scare the rest of the great fiendish demons."

    "Especially that Temple Lord Ruyi. If he were to be frightened away, with how cautious he is, it will be difficult to get another chance to kill him," thought Qin Yun.

    Temple Lord Ruyi was best at life-preservation and escaping.

    Qin Yun's strength...

    The moment he revealed his Paramount realm strength, Temple Lord Ruyi would definitely escape at the mere sight of his overwhelming strength.

    "I'll wait," said Qin Yun silently.

    As for the siege of the great fiendish demons?

    Qin Yun was an existence at the Connate Paramount realm and his Misty Rain Sword Intent was best when it came to defense. With his Cyclic Sword Flash, the combined forces of the four great fiendish demons felt like a mere scratch of an itch.

    After some time, the three fiendish demons finally came to a stop.

    "Qin Yun, do you only know how to hide? If you are capable, come on out and fight us," bellowed Poison Dragon King angrily.

    "I heard that back in the Scenic Yang Immortal Abode, all he did was hide! The human's imperial government's Ji Lie had dealt with him and he had barely resisted with his flying sword arts. He had even relied on them to obtain the Golden Core Cauldron," the blind elder said with a shake of his head. The events of Scenic Yang Immortal Abode were something all parties knew of. It was not a secret to the well-informed great fiendish demons.

    They also knew that Qin Yun was great at defending! His defense was greater than the Bai family's Bai Junyue's casting of the Minor Stellar Heavenly Cycle.

    "Alright, so he's only good at this one move. The moment he comes out, he will be courting death. We can't expect him to just throw himself to his death so easily," echoed Matron Centaurea.

    "What a cowardly mouse," scoffed Poison Dragon King.

    "Qin Yun, sword immortals are supposed to be best at the offensive. Come on, let's have a fight," said the blind elder loudly. Their voices reverberated through the world.

    They were deliberately deriding and mocking him. However, it was useless. Qin Yun continued defending with his Cyclic Sword Flash.

    "Forget it, he doesn't have the guts to come out." Matron Centaurea shook her head.

    "Let's have a rest," said Poison Dragon King immediately.

    "Yea." Matron Centaurea nodded.

    The trio immediately flew a distance away and landed on a nearby mountain peak where they took a temporary breather.

    In addition, they began secretly contacting other great fiendish demons. Since they could not deal with Qin Yun alone, they called on more, stronger great fiendish demons!

    ...

    With the news spreading, all the great fiendish demons outside Grand Dominance City were naturally informed one after another. Even the slowest ones were eventually informed by the Myriad Temple that Qin Yun was presently at Mt. Blue Granny outside Qian Prefecture's Jia'an County City.

    "Nice one, Qin Yun. I knew you wouldn't have the patience to stay in Grand Dominance City all your life. But I never expected you to lose your patience after just a month." Temple Lord Ruyi walked out of a bamboo lodge. He said smugly, "Haha, Jia'an County doesn't have the three array formations like Grand Dominance City. Nor is there a Yellow-scarved Strongman. This time, Qin Yun is doomed."

    "As for the vying of treasures? That will depend on each party's ability."

    Temple Lord Ruyi was rather confident in himself. His life-preserving skills were truly formidable. In addition to his life-preserving skills, he could fly into the sky and burrow into the ground! And while those were his best skills, he could still hold his own in a head-on clash.

    "Whew!"

    Temple Lord Ruyi transformed into a stream of light and instantly tore through the air. The stream of light vaguely revealed a gigantic centipede's phantom as it flew through the void at an extremely fast speed.

    ...

    Right away, many great fiendish demons departed Grand Dominance County and rushed towards Qian Prefecture's Jia'an County.

    ******

    Five kilometers away. Grand General Summon Thunder and his two generals were still hiding.

    "They have stopped."

    "Nothing is happening anymore." The three carefully peered at the distant Mt. Blue Granny.

    Shoo!

    A dark purple flying sword flashed and appeared in front of the three.

    Grand General Summon Thunder, General Hunt, and General Shrimp immediately sensed it. The color in their faces drained when they saw the flying sword in front of them.

    "This..." The trio was stumbling over their words.

    "If you do not want to die, come to me." The flying sword transmitted a voice with its Dharmic powers. It was Qin Yun's voice.

    "Yes, yes, yes." Grand General Summon Thunder and company nodded immediately.

    "Swoosh."

    Immediately, the Heavy Sand Sword pulled Grand General Summon Thunder and company rapidly towards Mt. Blue Granny at any extremely fast speed.

    "Oh?" Far away on a mountain, the resting Matron Centaurea, Poison Dragon King, and Valley Lord Windhark, as well as Patriarch Tenebrous Aspect, also noticed the sword beam that was flying with three demons.

    "Three demons?" Matron Centaurea and company were perplexed.

    "What is he capturing the three demons for?"

    Phew.

    On Mt. Blue Granny.

    Qin Yun stood there as Grand General Summon Thunder and company were delivered to him. All of them planted their feet firmly into the ground.

    "Greetings, Young Master Qin." Grand General Summon Thunder and company were very respectful.

    "Grand General Summon Thunder, a demon at the Connate True Core realm. I've heard of you." Qin Yun looked at Grand General Summon Thunder. "Was it you who sent General Crab to kill this fish demoness?"

    "No, it wasn't me. It wasn't!" Grand General Summon Thunder shook his head immediately, denying it straight up. Anyone who had cultivated to such a realm was not dumb.

    General Crab was dead!

    The fish demoness was behind Qin Yun. The headstone beside them had the words 'Fu Qing' engraved on it. How could Grand General Summon Thunder not understand that Qin Yun had an extraordinary relationship with Fu Qing?

    "It wasn't you?" Qin Yun frowned.

    "Ask the young fish demoness if you don't believe me," said Grand General Summon Thunder immediately. "General Crab was always the one pursuing her with his demons. I never pursued her. If it had been me, how would she have lived to this day?"

    Qin Yun looked at Fu Sizhuo.

    She hesitated for a moment. "I have never seen him before."

    "Why did General Crab say that you were the one who gave the order?" asked Qin Yun again.

    "I've been maligned!" Grand General Summon Thunder said immediately. "We were only following orders but the three of us were not really willing to lead the charge. It was General Crab who was most enthusiastic."

    "Who ordered you?" asked Qin Yun.

    Grand General Summon Thunder's expression changed. General Hunt and General Shrimp did not dare utter a word.

    "Do none of you know?" asked Qin Yun.

    "We... We do not know. We didn't dare to probe." General Hunt and General Shrimp had pale faces. They were afraid of both Qin Yun and the Dragon Queen! The orders were meant to be carried out with the utmost secrecy! Dragon Queen's domineering attitude was something even Flood Dragon King was helpless against.

    "Me... Me too..." Grand General Summon Thunder was almost close to tears.

    "Your two subordinates do not know but you, as a Grand General, must have had someone deliver the order to you, right?" Qin Yun gave Grand General Summon Thunder a faint smile.

    Grand General Summon Thunder said helplessly, "Young Master Qin, if I say it, please do not say that it was me who told you."

    "Speak. If you don't, I'll kill you now," Qin Yun said coldly.

    "Dragon Queen!" Grand General Summon Thunder said immediately. "Dragon Queen gave the order. Both of them know as well. General Crab knew too."

    General Hunt and General Shrimp were feeling endlessly troubled.

    Qin Yun swept them with a gaze.

    Dragon Queen...

    Flood Dragon King's wife wants to kill Flood Dragon King's illegitimate daughter. Interesting.

    "Now, contact Dragon Queen." Qin Yun looked at Grand General Summon Thunder.

    "Contact her? Me?" Grand General Summon Thunder could not help but say, "If Dragon Queen knows that I was the one who leaked the news, she won't spare me..."

    A cold glint flashed in Qin Yun's eyes. A flying sword floated up beside him.

    "I'll do it. I'll do it now!" Grand General Summon Thunder said immediately. He took out a stone token with a flip of his hand. It glowed as a phantom image appeared beside him.

    A dignified and poised woman appeared in the projection. She looked coldly down at him. "Summon Thunder, have you killed that young fish demoness?"

    "Your Majesty, it's not me... it's not me that wants to see you. It's Grand Dominance County's Young Master Qin Yun." Grand General Summon Thunder said obsequiously before turning the stone token to face Qin Yun.

    The woman in the projection saw Qin Yun as well.

    She looked down and had a cold expression. "If he wants to meet me, aren't you aware that you need to inform me ahead of time? Hmph, how does a human Azure-token Inspector Heavenly Ambassador have the right to meet me?" With that said, the transmission was severed. She was indeed somewhat vexed. According to Flood Dragon Palace's rules, anyone that wanted to meet her had to inform ahead of time and she would meet the person only at her discretion.

    Dragon Queen was furious that she was immediately informed that Qin Yun wanted to meet her without any prior messages. Grand General Summon Thunder was taken aback when Dragon Queen's phantom suddenly dissipated.

    "Contact her again," said Qin Yun.
