Chapter 17: Only the Demon Lord is Invincible Since Birth
Enormous amounts of sword qi spread out from the depths of the ruins.
Radiant sword flashes illuminated a good half of the ruins!
Most powerful cultivators wouldn’t dare to get close to that sword qi.
Even if someone of the Supreme Divine realm showed up, they’d still have to be careful and weigh the risks!
However, if it’s Ling Ye, he could just completely ignore them.
Zhuge Qingchan’s face was frozen in amazement!
The enormous formation before her practically filled her gaze as far as she could see!
It’s like it covered the entire ruins!
“Could this be… Where the Sword God Bai Jiu and you had your great battle back then?” Zhuge Qingchang asked.
There’s no one who didn’t know of that battle back then!
She also read about it on ancient manuscripts.
That battle back then had alarmed the entire myriad realms!
It was known as a once in ten millennium battle of the peak!
A battle between Supreme Divine realms is indeed that rare!
Why did Ling Ye come here?
Ling Ye didn’t speak. He only looked toward the deepest part of the sword formation.
There, a figure sat, lotus style!
It was a woman in white. It’s wasn’t just her clothes either. Her hair was white too.
A completely white figure!
She was quite beautiful in appearance too. A cold and lonely beauty!
A black cloth covered her eyes!
She was blind!
She had quietly sat within that sword formation for who knows how many years now.
It’s like she’d been sealed there since forever!
As lonesome as the ruins that surrounds her!
A sword floated in front of her!
Or rather… It’s a wooden stick!
It’s basically just a stick whittled down into a board.
There’s no blade nor point!
It looked just that average.
However, that stick had once swept across the myriad realms, nearly unbeatable!
That stick was the greatest sword in existence!
And that woman in white is naturally that famous Sword God Bai Jiu!
“That one… Is that the legendary Sword God Bai Jiu? She looks… Weighty!”
Zhuge Qingchan looked toward Bai Jiu in the middle of that sword formation.
The first impression that Bai Jiu gave her was… Weighty!
Like a stagnant lake!
Just sitting there, she’s like the ruins around her. Lonesome, deep, and weighty!
As if the entirety of the myriad realms had nothing to do with her at all.
Like her entire personage had already merged with the ruins here!
Ling Ye didn’t speak. He only waved his hand and brought out a wine gourd, “I’m giving your thing back!”
With that, he tossed that wine gourd toward Bai Jiu!
The same Bai Jiu who had been sitting in the sword formation in the middle of the ruins in silence for untold years!
When she noticed the wine gourd flying toward her, she finally raised a hand and caught it!
“It’s been a thousand years!”
A voice as lonesome as stagnant water came out of her mouth.
She had been sealed here for a thousand years now!
Back then, she was the one who sealed herself here!
She had once been invincible in the sword. In the end, she encountered Ling Ye and lost!
It was the first time she, who had been undefeated in the sword, had met a match for her.
Thus, she sealed herself off here in with the sole intent of pursuing a higher realm!
A higher realm of swordsmanship!
“You’re not likely to be here to visit a failure.” Bai Jiu’s voice rang out again.
Then, she popped open the cork on the gourd and took a drink of the hard liquor within!
“I don’t even remember how many people have been defeated at my hands!”
Ling Ye lightly grinned, “Very few people can make me remember them!”
“So then, to be remembered by you basically means to have gained your respect?”
Bai Jiu’s voice once more rang out, “In that case, I really am honored then!”
“Back then, you had said that anyone who had defeated you can as anything of you!” Ling Ye continued on.
That was an oath that Bai Jiu made all those years ago!
Anyone at all in the universe. So long as they defeated her, she could do anything for that person!
It really meant anything. Be it good or evil!
Back then, Bai Jiu’s swordsmanship was known as being undefeated in the universe!
She held a mentality of being invincible, yet craving defeat!
In the end, she encountered Ling Ye and really was defeated!
And it was a completely, one sided defeat at that!
Back then, Ling Ye took her wine gourd as basically a token of that oath!
Now is the time for Bai Jiu to live up to her oath.
“You of all people actually have a need of me?” Bai Jiu was rather curious.
Just who was Ling Ye?
Someone truly invincible!
She had stepped across the myriad realms, met countless people.
However, it’s Ling Ye alone who gave her an impression… That can be called invincible!
What’s invincible about him wasn’t his cultivation realm!
But rather… A kind of aura!
She had seen one prodigy after another rise, going from a nameless boy to the peak of the world!
However, all those were merely a genius of their generation!
A mere short-lived flash!
She had seen far too many prodigies like that.
Ling Ye alone gave her a… Forever undefeated kind of feeling!
It was as if he had stood at the top of the world ever since the beginning.
Throughout the various reshuffling and changes throughout countless eras, he had always been invincible!
And he always will be invincible!
He… Really did crush the universe beneath his feet and reigned supreme!
In the myriad realms, there were countless prodigies!
However, only the Demon Lord has always been invincible!
