Supreme Emperor of Swords - Chapter 1017
Chapter 1017 Brother Hao Leave Here
To his disappointment, Ding Hao did not see the Great Phoenix Saint at the evening banquet. According to the words of the Golden Eagle Demon King, the Great Saint of the Demon Clan was still in closed-door cultivation and hadn’t come out.
“Each of the Great Saint’s closed-door training takes about the same time. According to the previous rules, she should come out tonight, but…” The Golden Eagle Demon King said apologetically, “She is in closed-door training, and we don’t dare to disturb her. Please forgive us, Your Highness.”
Ding Hao could tell that the Golden Eagle Demon King was not lying.
Although he was a little anxious, Ding Hao still nodded and said with a smile, “It doesn’t matter. Has Jieyu not come back yet?”
“The war in the south is a bit tense. She didn’t defeat the enemies until sunset. I believe that she is now on her way back and will come back soon,” Golden Eagle Demon King hurriedly said.
Ding Hao didn’t continue.
He had come to the Immortal Phoenix Palace mainly because he wanted to unite the power of the palace to resist the invasion of the Land of Divine Grace. Secondly, he wanted to go to the place where Xie Jieyu lived to solve some mysteries about her and the Great Phoenix Saint. Because all kinds of signs showed that certain things might have something to do with him.
The Immortal Phoenix Palace was one of the giants in the Northern Region. If he could unite with them, coupled with the power of the Blue Cloud Sect, the Extermination Swordsmanship Sect, and other sects, he believed that when the real giants of the Land of Divine Grace came, the Infinite Human Clan would be able to fight them.
After arriving at True Phoenix City, Ding Hao wanted to unite with the Immortal Phoenix Palace even more. He was sure that with this trend, the palace would become the most powerful force of the Demon Clan in the Northern Region one day. Even the old forces like the Demon God Palace and the Heavenly Demon Temple could not compare with such a unique force of the Demon Clan.
He had no choice but to wait patiently by now.
He hoped that the Great Phoenix Saint would finish her closed-door training as soon as possible. Otherwise, Ding Hao really didn’t have much time to waste here. The situation in the Land of Infinity was getting worse and worse. The power of God’s Palace had appeared there, and it was a very bad sign that it was mixed with the River Palace.
What worried Ding Hao most was the apostasy of powers on the Land of Infinity. If he joined forces with the Land of Divine Grace’s power, it would definitely be a huge disaster for the living creatures on the Land of Infinity.
The sound of singing and dancing echoed on the top of the skyscraper building.
This was the tallest building in True Phoenix City, and it was filled with the style of modern times. One could almost instantly reach the top by taking the demonic-streaked elevator. The place was as spacious as a football field, and there were demonic-streaked headlamps on all sides, which could absorb the energy tide between heaven and earth to light up the place. They were almost like perpetual motion machines.
There was the beautiful building, the night sky, and the bright moon that looked like a huge jade plate, almost hanging on top of everyone’s heads. Su Qing and others were all a little excited to see such a beautiful scene.
The ten Demon Kings, including the Golden Eagle Demon King, as well as the powerful masters of the Demon Clan in the True Phoenix City, all showed up here. The scale of the evening banquet was very big, which showed that True Phoenix City attached great importance to Ding Hao, the Holy Son.
Suddenly, a stream of flowing light flashed in the distance. Like a phoenix, it cut through the night sky and was extremely bright. A figure in the light directly passed through the protective cover of the building and landed on the top.
Ding Hao stood up with a smile.
“Greetings, Your Highness, Holy Goddess.” The surrounding demons all fell to their knees and shouted loudly.
The Martial Demigoddess, Xie Jieyu, finally appeared.
Compared with Ding Hao, the Holy Son who existed in name only for many years, Xie Jieyu, the Holy Goddess who lived here most of the time, was obviously more welcomed by the superiors of the Demon Clan and had a higher status in the hearts of demons in the True Phoenix City.
“Brother Hao!” Xie Jieyu saw Ding Hao and walked over with a smile.
This was the first time for Ding Hao to appear in True Phoenix City. To Xie Jieyu, she had a strange feeling. It was like her sweetheart finally came to her parents’ home to propose marriage, which at least showed her place in Ding Hao’s heart.
Xie Jieyu was not the kind of person who would act shy. She was decisive in killing, but she was still a girl after all. At this moment, she showed an unconcealable excitement.
Ding Hao gently held the delicate hand of the Martial Demigoddess.
This scene broke the hearts of countless young talents of the Demon Clan.
Over the years, Xie Jieyu’s status in the hearts of the entire Demon Clan of the Immortal Phoenix Palace was only second to the Great Phoenix Saint. She had fought in many places for the palace many times. She had fought against the other Demon Clan and some Human Clan forces by which she made outstanding achievements. She had turned the tide again and again. Coupled with her unparalleled appearance, in the hearts of the Demon Clan of the Immortal Phoenix Palace, Xie Jieyu was an invincible goddess.
Countless geniuses of the Demon Clan wanted to pursue her.
But no one dared to show their affection to her.
On one hand, Xie Jieyu’s noble temperament and status were honorable. On the other hand, there had been news that the goddess already had someone she loved, who was also a peerless figure that shocked the Northern Region.
Today, when they saw the noble and cold goddess act shy and affectionately in front of a man, countless Demon Clan geniuses knew that they would never get to be with her in their lives.
There were all kinds of cheers around.
After Xie Jieyu appeared, the banquet reached its climax in an instant. Countless Demon Clan experts and real power figures came to greet her. Their attitude was extremely respectful. It could be seen that Xie Jieyu’s status was indeed high, and she held the real power of the Immortal Phoenix Palace.
Compared with Ding Hao, the Holy Son who was merely nominal, she was many times stronger.
“Jieyu, where is little Ding Ding?” After greeting the figures of all parties, Ding Hao sat down and whispered in her ear.
A trace of sadness suddenly flashed across Xie Jieyu’s face. She said, “Ding Ding died.”
Ding Hao was shocked. He couldn’t believe what he had heard. Although he hadn’t seen Ding Ding by Xie Jieyu’s side for a long time, he thought it was because the mature little girl had stayed in the Immortal Phoenix Palace, but he didn’t expect that she was dead.
“What happened?” Ding Hao asked.
Xie Jieyu looked a little sad and said, “In a battle in the Secret Region, I failed to protect her…” This was obviously the pain in the Martial Demigoddess’ heart and she didn’t want to talk too much about it.
Ding Hao couldn’t keep asking, so he could only comfort her.
In his mind, he could still see the smiling face of the young girl. This girl had countless mysteries When she was in the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect, she was the only one who could subdue Evil Moon. Such a lovely porcelain doll was now dead.
The affairs of the world were just so unpredictable.
Thinking of this, Ding Hao thought of Evil Moon again.
After the battle of Immortal Artifact in the Saint-alighting Mountain Range, Ding Hao had looked for clues many times in the ruins of the mountain range. With the last glimmer of hope, he wanted to find Evil Moon even if all he could find was Evil Moon’s body, but unfortunately, he got nothing.
Ding Hao still couldn’t figure out what the sea of blood in the middle of the golden battlefield meant and whether it was in another space. He had also spent a lot of money asking around in the Heaven Sound Pavilion and the Earth Sight Pavilion, but unluckily, he didn’t get any clues.
Now his only hope was the mysterious stone in his hand, the Heavenly Secret Design.
If he could find the stone a new owner and ask him to take action, perhaps he could figure out the whereabouts of Evil Moon.
The relaxing banquet suddenly became boring to Ding Hao because of the stuff he kept thinking of.
Xie Jieyu suddenly took his hand and squeezed it hard in her palm.
Ding Hao froze for a bit, but he saw that the Martial Demigoddess gave him a slight wink. She then took his hand, got up, and left the top floor of the banquet. They walked through the red carpet and went down the building.
Countless experts of the Demon Clan watched them leave.
Some geniuses of the clan, who had admired Xie Jieyu for a long time, were even more irritable at this moment and wanted to kill Ding Hao. The goddess in their hearts left hand in hand with a man. Who knew what they were going to do?
When they thought that Xie Jieyu was very likely to be acting gently in Ding Hao’s arms, they felt that their hearts were bleeding.
After opening a gate decorated with many demonic streaks, Xie Jieyu took Ding Hao to the top of the skyscraper building. The mysterious crystal glass looked as transparent as water. Standing by the window, one could overlook the entire True Phoenix City. It was a brightly lit city. Especially at night, it appeared extremely beautiful.
“Brother Hao, you need to leave here now,” Xie Jieyu said anxiously in Ding Hao’s ear.
“What?” Ding Hao was stunned.
Xie Jieyu raised her hand as a True Phoenix flame shot out, which suddenly triggered some kind of demonic-streaked tactical deployment in the room, isolating everything outside. She took out four simple stone-like crystals from the Storage Ring and skillfully combined them together to activate the energy inside when a flame-colored transmission door suddenly opened.
“Leave the city NOW,” the Martial Demigoddess said anxiously. “The Great Saint is going to imprison you. I can’t talk her down. This is a secret transmission formation. You must get out of here through it now, or you will never be able to walk out of the True Phoenix City again!”
“The Great Saint wants to imprison me?” Ding Hao frowned. “What for?”
Xie Jieyu said hurriedly, “I can’t make it clear for now. Brother Hao, you should leave first. If the Great Saint notices it later, you will never be able to leave here…”
It was rare for the Martial Demigoddess to have such an anxious expression.
Perhaps she was like this because she cared for Ding Hao too much.
Ding Hao looked at the beautiful girl in front of him who devoted herself to him. After hesitating for a moment, he shook his head and said, “Jieyu, I can’t leave. Su Qing and the others are still here. What will they do if I leave?”
“Don’t worry, Brother Hao. I’ll protect them,” Xie Jieyu hurriedly said.
Ding Hao suddenly smiled and reached to pull up a strand of messy hair around Xie Jieyu’s ear. He said softly, “I came here for the Great Phoenix Saint to discuss something very important with her, so I can’t leave for the time being. Don’t worry, I know what I should do. Nothing will happen to me. Besides, if I really leave without saying goodbye and the Great Saint finds out about it, you will be punished by her. You should know that what you have done is tantamount to going against her will. She will definitely be angry.”
Xie Jieyu froze for a bit.
She then slowly stepped back and suddenly showed a strange smile on her face. Her voice abruptly turned into a strange tone. She said with laughter, “Haha, nice, nice. Jieyu has got her man right. Ding Hao, you deserve my appreciation.”
