Land of the Great Clouds.
“What are you saying?”
Sikong Lanyue’s voice was surprised, “Are you sure it’s a Holy-grade perfect talent?!”
The gray-robed Daoist standing in front of her replied, “Yes I am, back at the Demon Sect Talent Testing Event, where the Soul Jade Perception Stone exploded in front of public and turned into a starburst in the sky, is a symbol of Holy-grade perfect.”
Sikong Lanyue fell into silence.
The clouds around her were like turbulent waves.
Holy-grade perfect talent.
With her nature, she naturally understood what these four words meant.
Perfect and flawless, with the rules of Dao in his mouth, he was born as a son of Dao.
Even Zhan Qingchen who is a Super-grade perfect talent would find it hard to look at him.
This is a legendary talent, but now it has actually appeared in the world, and it is a person of the Demonic path?
“Has that person’s identity been clearly investigated?”
Sikong Lanyue asked aloud.
The gray-robed Daoist replied, “The investigation is clear, it is none other than Su Shi who defeated Chen Qingluan a few days ago.”
Sikong Lanyue was stunned for a moment, “It was actually him?”
She thought it was a disciple who had just joined the sect, but she never expected it to be a small commander of the Southwest Region!
He was actually a Holy-grade perfect talent!
“No wonder the Demon Empress didn’t hesitate to issue the Black Killing Order.”
Sikong Lanyue’s thoughts turned and sneered, “Hiding a genius in the wilderness for ten years, Yun Qiluo’s mind is quite deep.”
In the eyes of the world, although the Demonic path is powerful, it does not have much power behind it.
The position of Chief Disciple has been vacant for many years, and there are no top talents like Zhan Qingchen or Chen Qingluan among the younger generation.
Everyone thought that as long as the younger generation rose up, the scales of victory would definitely tip in favor of the Righteous path.
But to their surprise, this was actually an illusion created by the Demonic path!
The super genius that the Demon Empress had secretly cultivated was now at birth!
The gray-robed Daoist said in a deep voice, “If we let Su Shi grow, I’m afraid there will be endless trouble ahead, we should nip it in the bud before the trouble gets bigger.”
Sikong Lanyue shook her head, “Demon Empress is not a fool, such a genius must have great experts to protect him, it’s not something we can kill just because we want to.”
“Even if we manage to kill him, we will then face the Demon Empress’ terrible anger, Tianji Pavilion is not afraid, but what about the people in this world?”
With Yun Qiluo’s nature, it’s afraid she will turn the Nine Regions into a sea of blood!
The gray-robed Daoist frowned, “But if Su Shi grows up, he will become the next Demon Emperor in the future, and people will still suffer.”
How could Sikong Lanyue not understand this truth?
She hesitated for a long time, and after weighing her options in her heart, she said, “Talent is indeed important in the path of cultivation, but opportunity, heart and effort are also indispensable.”
“I believe in Qingchen, she may not be weaker than Su Shi in the future.”
Although the gray-robed Daoist was resigned, there was nothing he could do.
In his heart, he secretly thought that the Sect Leader was unreasonable!
Chief Zhan was indeed a genius, but on the other side was the genius of geniuses!
One was at the top of a mountain, the other was in the vast sky!
How could it possibly be compared?
As the gray-robed Daoist retreated, Sikong Lanyue sighed silently.
There was actually another reason she didn’t say.
If Su Shi really laid a hand on her, then there was no way Yun Qiluo would let Zhan Qingchen go!
She really didn’t want to risk the life of her beloved disciple.
“Let’s hope that I’ve made the right choice ……”
Outside the main gate of the Demon Extermination Division, a green-clothed figure hid behind the wall and inspected the division yard.
It was none other than Chen Qingluan.
With her speed, she should have returned long ago.
It just that, she had been lagging behind and had lost a lot of time on the road.
Ever since she set out to fight demons at the age of fourteen, she had not lost a single battle in ten years, and was known as the mythical invincible of the Demon Extermination Division.
Now not only did she lose to the unknown Su Shi, but she was also captured for days ……
“This is so embarrassing!”
Chen Qingluan covered her forehead, “They will definitely laugh at me!”
She hesitated outside the door for a long time before finally summoning the courage to tiptoe inside the Censor’s office, close to the wall.
But before she could take a few steps, a startled shout rang out behind her.
“Imperial Censor Chen?!”
Chen Qingluan moved stiffly and slowly turned around.
Only to see a deacon staring at her with an excited expression, “Imperial Censor Chen, you’ve returned?”
The corner of Chen Qingluan’s mouth twitched, “Tsk …...”
“What, Imperial Censor Chen has returned?!”
“Where is it?”
“Imperial Censor Chen has really returned!”
The crowd, startled by the voice, came into the courtyard and flocked around Chen Qingluan.
The atmosphere was noisy and frenzied for a while.
This is a great disgrace!
Chen Qingluan bowed her head in defeat, ready to face their ridicule.
“Lord Chen is here!”
Somehow someone shouted, and the noisy crowd instantly fell silent.
The crowd retreated and parted ways as a middle-aged man with a slightly white beard slowly walked towards her.
Commander of the Demon Extermination Division and Minister in charge of the Emperor’s Escort! 1
His Majesty had bestowed upon him the title of “Grand Master”!
Chen Qingluan lowered her head, “I am incapable ……”
“Qingluan, you have done well.”
Chen Wangchuan patted her shoulder, revealing a friendly smile.
Chen Qingluan froze.
This father of her had always been iron-faced, although she had been in the Demon Extermination Division for over ten years, she had never heard him praise her even once.
Now that she had failed, he was saying that she had done a good job?
She asked carefully, “This siege failed and I also lost …… Why don’t you criticize me?”
“Victory and defeat are common in the military.”
Chen Wangchuan shook his head, “What’s more, you are facing Su Shi, it is already very good to be able to defend yourself.”
Chen Qingluan scratched her head, “Huh?”
“You still don’t know? That Demon Shu is a Holy-grade perfect talent, a super genius who has been hidden in the Demonic path for over ten years!”
Chen Wangchuan praised, “Of those who went to lay siege, only you managed to escape unscathed, as expected of my daughter!”
“As expected of Imperial Censor Chen!”
The crowd echoed.
Chen Qingluan’s eyes froze.
That depraved kidnapper was actually a Holy-grade perfect talent!
Her cheeks burned slightly as she listened to the admiration of the people around her.
She knew in her own heart that there was no such thing as escaping unscathed, she was released by Su Shi ……
She had even been carelessly flirted with by that man ……
When she thought of the vow she had made, Chen Qingluan’s eyes were filled with confusion.
Does this …… revenge still have a chance to be carried out?
Southwest Region, Fengsha City.
Looking at the sandy and dusty small town in front of him, Cen Yiren couldn’t help but frown.
“Didn’t you say that we were going to Tianqu Mountain? What’s the point of running to this shitty place?”
Su Shi glanced at her, “You can go home if you don’t want to come.”
Cen Yiren said angrily, “Su Shi, mind your manners, I’m your Senior Sister! How can you say that?!”
Su Shi shrugged, “But West Saint himself gave his word that you are now only my bodyguard.”
“I command you to be quiet.”
“I order you not to look at me.”
“And not to show off your teeth.”
“Don’t, don’t be silly!”
