“Human, you won’t cut it,” jeered the blue-scale jiao.
“Is that so? Just wait until I catch you. I’ll make you my brother’s wife,” said Xiang Shaoyun with a smile.
“Boss, you can’t do that to me. This b.i.t.c.h is too cruel. I reject her,” Money hurriedly said.
“What a coward. Back then, the fiercer the tigress, the more Little White liked it,” said Xiang Shaoyun as he found Money too soft. He then shot toward the sea like a bolt of lightning.
The blue-scale jiao could sense that he was an extraordinary human. He wouldn’t have been able to make a powerful Demon Emperor and feathered beastman his followers otherwise. Without any hesitation, she dove deep into the water.
Instead of diving underwater, Xiang Shaoyun stopped at the surface and grabbed at the water. Two ma.s.sive blue palms swept through the sea, causing the sea to split before a powerful force wrapped around the blue-scale jiao and fished her up.
The blue-scale jiao roared furiously. She repeatedly struggled, trying to break free of Xiang Shaoyun’s grasp, only to find that the force wrapped around her was too powerful. Apart from hardness, there was also a soft force around her. No matter how she struggled, she couldn’t escape.
Xiang Shaoyun tossed the blue-scale jiao high into the sky. His clone walked out of his forehead, and a powerful Sovereign aura wrapped around the blue-scale jiao and fixed her in midair. She was completely helpless and felt greatly threatened. It was as though the human could erase her anytime he wanted.
Xiang Shaoyun had released his clone because he did not want to waste any time on the blue-scale jiao. Without the clone, he would need to waste some effort to make her yield. In any case, he had already decided to capture the blue-scale jiao and make her Money’s wife.
The blue-scale jiao finally sensed how dreadful Xiang Shaoyun was. No matter how she struggled, she couldn’t break free. Furthermore, Xiang Shaoyun’s killing intent seemed to be getting thicker, causing her to be even more fearful.
“Take me to Lonesoul Island, and you’ll have your freedom back. Or you’ll just die,” said Xiang Shaoyun as his sixth-stage Sovereign aura wrapped around the blue-scale jiao threateningly.
The blue-scale jiao was not some animal with low intelligence. She was as intelligent as a human, and she knew that Xiang Shaoyun wasn’t negotiating. If she dared to refuse, she would die immediately. Thus, she had no choice but to say, “I’ll bring you there.”
“Excellent. To show your sincerity in working with us, send your clan’s army away,” demanded Xiang Shaoyun.
Xiang Shaoyun could sense beings capable of threatening him within the army. He had to be careful. The completely helpless blue-scale jiao roared and communicated with the army using their exclusive language.
The army stopped advancing, but one of them transformed into a handsome middle-aged man. Walking on water, he strode forward, a heroic bearing about him.
“Release the princess, or you won’t be able to leave this sea alive,” said the middle-aged man. His voice was calm, but his sharp eyes were filled with a fierce glint. Evidently, he would start killing if Xiang Shaoyun refused.
Xiang Shaoyun met the middle-aged man’s gaze and said, “We meant no harm and were only trying to get to Lonesoul Island. However, we had a misunderstanding with this princess, and we only need her to bring us there. This whole thing will end after that.”
The middle-aged man was strong, but when Xiang Shaoyun learned that he had the blue-scale jiao princess as his hostage, his worry lessened. He was confident the other party wouldn’t fight him to the death with his hostage.
“Uncle, swallow all of them!” shouted the princess eagerly.
“Before he swallows us, you will die,” said Xiang Shaoyun as his clone focused completely on the princess. The moment the other party tried anything, he would kill.
The middle-aged man’s pupils constricted before his figure swept forth like a gust of wind. He moved at an incredible speed that regular sixth-stage Sovereigns would be helpless against. However, Xiang Shaoyun’s gift of instincts was working at full power. He saw the middle-aged man’s movement clearly and moved away before the middle-aged man arrived. He then unleashed a powerful burst of force as he roared, “Kill!”
The endless killing intent leaking from Xiang Shaoyun indicated that he wasn’t joking around. The blue-scale jiao princess could feel her entire body being crushed, tormenting her with an intense pain that caused her to wail.
The middle-aged man did not expect Xiang Shaoyun to be so fast. When he heard his niece wailing, he quickly said, “Stop! We’ll take you to Lonesoul Island!”
He wouldn’t care about any other blue-scale jiao, but this was his niece. He had no choice but to care about her.
“Swear an oath with your ident.i.ty as a n.o.ble. Otherwise, I don’t mind letting all h.e.l.l break loose,” demanded Xiang Shaoyun with his gaze locked on the middle-aged man.
“Ok. On my race, I vow to take you to Lonesoul Island. If I break my vow, may my bloodline be severed, and may I suffer the death of being devoured by 10,000 worms,” swore the middle-aged man without hesitation.
Finally, Xiang Shaoyun released the princess and said apologetically, “My apologies, but I have no choice. I will give the princess a proper apology when all this is over.”
“Hmph. I hope you’re a man of your word,” snapped the middle-aged man after pulling his nice behind him.
“Uncle, have your subordinates tear them apart,” demanded the furious blue-scale jiao princess.
“Enough. This will end here. I will have my subordinate take you to Lonesoul Island. May you die on it,” said the middle-aged man indifferently.
He then returned to the sea with the princess. A different blue-scale jiao was called over to show Xiang Shaoyun’s group the way.
“Many thanks,” said Xiang Shaoyun with his hands cupped together.
With a blue-scale jiao showing the way, Xiang Shaoyun’s group started rus.h.i.+ng toward Lonesoul Island.
Looking at the departing group, the princess gnashed her teeth and asked, “Uncle, are we really letting them go so easily?”
“What else can we do? I already swore on it,” said the middle-aged man. A pampering look was apparent in his eyes when he looked at the princess.
“But others of our race have made no such vow! Let me bring a group over to swallow all of them!” said the princess. She was obviously someone who would hold a long grudge.
She had already a.s.sumed her human form. She was beautiful, tall, and charming. Clad in blue armor, she looked incredibly n.o.ble.
“That young human is rather special, so we can’t try anything against him recklessly. In any case, heading to Lonesoul Island is the same as suicide. That place is now the territory of the furred claw crabs. The young human’s group won’t do well there. We don’t have to waste any effort on them,” said the middle-aged man with his eyes narrowed.
