Money’s roar was akin to a dragon’s roar. The sea churned and turned, his roar displaying the might of a true dragon. When the nearby aquatic demons sensed the powerful aura, they fled and scattered in fear. Of course, there was also a powerful aquatic demon that decided to poke its head up to see just what demonic beast was here disturbing them.
A top-tier blue-scale jiao Demon Emperor shot out of the water, giving an unyielding reply. It did not seem any weaker than Money, its over 10-meter-long body filled with strength. Its s.h.i.+ny blue scales were extremely conspicuous, and its head was slightly similar to the shape of a dragon’s head, making it look incredibly fearsome and majestic.
Without even bothering to talk, it pounced at Money. In its eyes, the dragon blood flowing in Money proved fatally attractive. If it could devour Money, it would be even closer to evolving into a dragon. Money naturally wasn’t one to shrink from a fight. He roared fiercely as he engaged the blue-scale jiao in an intense battle.
Money was already a ninth-stage Demon Emperor. Furthermore, his strength never stopped growing. However, this blue-scale jiao wasn’t a pushover either. It had long reached peak Demon Emperor realm and could punch above its cla.s.s. After all, the jiao was a branch family of the dragons. They possessed a trace of dragon blood in their bloodline, and they were mighty combatants.
The two coiled around each other and tore at each other repeatedly. They clashed again and again while their demonic auras rippled outward, causing the sea to churn and turn. Above the sea, the blue-scale jiao held the upper hand. Its water manipulation allowed it to deal great damage to Money, whereas Money himself was unable to harm the jiao much.
At this time, Money finally grew furious. He roared and summoned a rain of silver lightning bolts, forming a sea of lightning to attack the blue-scale jiao. The blue-scale jiao was aware it couldn’t face the attack head-on, so it dove back into the sea.
The lightning bolts bombarded the sea, blasting it apart, creating numerous waves dozens of meters in height. The waves rippled everywhere. Money did not stop attacking. He dove into the sea as well, aiming only to capture the blue-scale jiao.
Looking at Money furiously fighting, Xiang Shaoyun smiled and said, “Money is already strong enough to hold his own. I wonder if he can beat this blue-scale jiao into submission. This jiao definitely knows Lonesoul Island’s location. After all this is over, I need to visit the Hundred Beast Mountain Range. I wonder how Little White has been. Does he still remember his boss?”
Under the sea, the seawater continued churning as two powerful figures clashed repeatedly. The sea’s surface was absolutely chaotic, a clue to the underwater battle’s intensity. After an indeterminate amount of time, Money was forced out of the water. He hovered in the sky, his body covered with wounds. Blood endlessly dripped from them. Evidently, he had sustained heavy injuries.
A part of the sea had been dyed red. It was unknown if the blood belonged to Money or the blue-scale jiao.
“Stupid b.i.t.c.h, get up here if you have the guts! I’ll tear you apart!” shouted Money.
It’s actually a female jiao? Xiang Shaoyun exclaimed inwardly.
A jiao heat came out of the water. Staring at money, she replied unyieldingly, “Come down here if you have the guts. This princess will swallow you alive!”
“This is infuriating! I refuse to believe I won’t be able to do anything to you, b.i.t.c.h!” Money was so furious he started trembling. He roared and dove right back into the water.
After yet another intense round of battle started, the fight lasted much longer than the previous round. Numerous lightning bolts rained down from the sky, but they were greatly weakened after entering the sea.
After all, Money specialized in lightning and not water. The sea was now his battle site, and he could display neither his full strength nor speed. Thus, he was completely helpless as the blue-scale jiao held the complete upper hand against him.
Unsurprisingly, Money flew out of the water again after a while. Many new wounds appeared on his body, and he had again failed to capture the blue-scale jiao.
“Money, you can’t deal with her?” Xiang Shaoyun asked.
He wasn’t worried about Money’s wounds. After all, that fellow had an insane recovery speed. In fact, Xiang Shaoyun was more than happy to see Money suffer some hards.h.i.+p since it would be beneficial for his growth.
After taking a short breather, Money dove into the sea for the third time. Alas, he still returned in defeat.
The blue-scale jiao floated to the surface of the sea and challenged smugly, “You dare create trouble on this princess’s turf? You must be tired of living. If you annoy this princess, nowhere on this sea will be safe for you!”
The blue-scale jiao was quite arrogant, as though she ruled the entire sea.
Her words further provoked Money, and just as he was about to dive into the water again, Xiang Shaoyun said, “Princess, we only want to ask for directions. We didn’t intend to offend you. My apologies.”
“Laughable! You are shouting and roaring on my turf, and you dare claim you didn’t intend to offend me? You really think the jiao can be bullied easily?” berated the blue-scale jiao.
“Of course not. So long as you tell me the location of Lonesoul Island, we will leave. We will not disturb you a second longer. I will even offer you a gift,” said Xiang Shaoyun courteously.
“Who cares about your gift? When my clan’s army arrives, I will eat all of you!” said the blue-scale jiao proudly.
Money said unhappily, “You think I really can’t do anything to you, b.i.t.c.h? Come, come into the air. See if I can make you sprawl on the ground.”
“Come down here again if you’re so great. I won’t let you escape this time,” replied the blue-scale jiao unyieldingly.
Money wanted to dive down, but Xiang Shaoyun stopped him and said, “Enough, we can’t keep wasting time. The jiao army will be here soon. Things will be troublesome if we’re still here. Aikai, finish this quickly.”
“Yes, young master,” replied Aikai before he streaked into the sea.
Aikai was already a Sovereign, so he should probably be strong enough to deal with the blue-scale jiao. However, Xiang Shaoyun had obviously underestimated the blue-scale jiao. When Aikai was diving down, a ma.s.sive wave rose up and blocked his advance. The blue-scale jiao took the chance to swim away. Aikai was furious and attacked fiercely, sending a rain of feathers toward the sea, creating numerous ma.s.sive waves.
The blue-scale jiao lived up to the jiao’s reputation of being the overlords of water. Her strength was comparable to a Demon Sovereign. No matter how Aikai attacked, he could not harm her. In fact, he was endlessly furious due to her ceaseless provocations. However, he did not dare to enter the sea because he couldn’t fully display his strength underwater.
At this time, Xiang Shaoyun sensed a large jiao army in the distance. He had to finish this as soon as possible, or they would be further delayed.
“Move aside and watch. I’ll deal with her,” said Xiang Shaoyun as he finally decided to move personally.
