  Book 5: Chapter 97: A Beast Is a Beast

  Whoosh!

  Gu Hai moved rapidly, reaching the center of the plaza in mere moments.

  Some soldiers noticed Gu Hai, but most of them were distracted by the distant noise.

  As that palace hall crumbled, white crows suddenly flew out of it.

  Caw! Caw! Caw! Caw!

  Many white crows soared into the sky, holding the attention of Bodhisattva Zi Zhu and the Reincarnation King, who were about to turn their heads back.

  “How bold! How audacious!” some soldiers shouted furiously.

  Bodhisattva Zi Zhu and the Reincarnation King came to a sudden realization and turned their heads back at the shouts.

  Bang!

  However, it was already too late. Gu Hai was holding Chen Xianer in his embrace.

  The cloak Gu Hai wore flew off, and his body gave off blue light again. The soldiers immediately recognized him.

  “It’s him! It’s those two demons!”

  “The sages returned?”

  “Why is it him?”

  This immediately caused a commotion among the soldiers. They even backed off with horror in their eyes.

  The Reincarnation King and Bodhisattva Zi Zhu felt slightly startled. They had not expected Gu Hai to pop up.

  He returned so quickly?

  Gu Hai held Chen Xianer in his embrace, his posture replete with boundless fear and excitement as though afraid she would disappear.

  Chen Xianer’s eyes misted up. The moment she saw Gu Hai, she could not contain her emotions. As Gu Hai held her, it felt like a dream.

  “Hus…Husband, is that really you? Xianer got to see Husband again? It’s not a dream? Am I dreaming?” Tears uncontrollably flowed out of Chen Xianer’s eyes, unable to stop them.

  Is this a dream? I don’t want to wake up if that is the case.

  “Xianer! Hah! Hahaha! Hahahahahahaha!” Gu Hai guffawed while crying. His entire body trembled.

  He had worked so hard, all for this moment. Right now, his body trembled endlessly with the unwillingness to let go.

  Far away, after Bing Ji destroyed a palace hall, she flung out her sleeves, and many frost crows appeared out of nowhere, cawing as they soared into the air. She stood on a frost crow and rose into the sky as well.

  As she stood high in the sky, she happened to see Gu Hai embracing Chen Xianer in the distant plaza.

  She saw Gu Hai’s excitement and fear. Even from a distance, she could sense his boundless love for Chen Xianer. She had never seen Gu Hai lose himself like this before.

  Upon seeing Gu Hai hug Chen Xianer with such passion, intense envy flashed in Bing Ji’s eyes, a bitter smile appearing on her face.

  Bing Ji bit her lip as jealousy flickered in her eyes. She muttered, “Your Majesty, congratulations.”

  As Gu Hai embraced Chen Xianer, he felt like he was embracing the entire world. He did not want to let go of her.

  However, Bodhisattva Zi Zhu’s expression turned cold and sinister.

  “Gu Hai? Hah! Haha! Bing Ji? You are indeed incredibly crafty. It turned out that you did not leave?” Bodhisattva Zi Zhu said coldly.

  Since she was already exposed, Bodhisattva Zi Zhu did not think of hiding anymore.

  Only the Reincarnation King showed horror on his face. He moved back continuously, retreating behind Bodhisattva Zi Zhu.

  After all, he had lied to Gu Hai and Bing Ji. What if they pursued the matter?

  Bodhisattva Zi Zhu waved her hand. “Activate the ritual array!”

  Boom!

  Boundless flames appeared out of nowhere in the entire plaza, sealing off all exits from the stadium. The flames burned scarlet as they soared into the sky, seeming to form a huge, fiery lotus flower.

  “Ah!”

  “No!”

  The soldiers at the periphery and the other summoned Chen Xianers cried out in pain, burned away by the fire.

  The flames rushed towards the center, towards Gu Hai.

  However, Gu Hai kept hugging Chen Xianer, apparently unwilling to let go. The fire would arrive soon.

  “Red Lotus Karmic Flame?” Bing Ji’s expression changed as she controlled the frost crow to fly over quickly.

  “Go!” Bodhisattva Zi Zhu snorted coldly.

  Screech!

  A fiery-red eagle flew out of the flames, charging at Gu Hai. Everywhere it passed, the soldiers vaporized and the ground burned. They did not even have time to cry out. The eagle quickly approached Gu Hai, looking like it would crash into him.

  Caw!

  Suddenly, a white crow charged at the fiery-red eagle, shielding Gu Hai.

  Boom!

  A loud sound rang out as the frost crow and the fire eagle exploded. Powerful shock waves crumbled the surrounding buildings.

  “Husband…Husband…,” Chen Xianer called out worriedly.

  “It’s fine. It’s all fine. Husband has found you. It is all fine now,” Gu Hai said gently, holding Chen Xianer even tighter.

  Screech! Screech!

  Suddenly, thousands of fiery-red eagles rushed out of the fire ritual array and charged at Gu Hai.

  Caw! Caw! Caw!

  Many frost crows arrived quickly, surrounding Gu Hai and charging at the eagles.

  “Bodhisattva Zi Zhu? Attacking while your opponent’s back is turned? How extremely shameless!” Bing Ji roared with a glare.

  “Oh? Bing Ji? I’m extremely shameless? So what if I am extremely shameless? This ritual array is my Spirit Mountain Holy Land’s Red Lotus Karmic Flame Ritual Array. Previously, you humiliated me in Heavenly Mao City. Let’s see how you escape today. Frost crows? So what if you have many frost crows? There will be a limit. My ritual array has limitless fire eagles!” Bodhisattva Zi Zhu glared.

  Boom!

  As more fire eagles rushed out, the flames soared to the sky. Reincarnation City’s skies burned red as many buildings collapsed.

  “Break!” Bing Ji shouted. Vast amounts of cold energy poured out from her palm, rushing at Bodhisattva Zi Zhu. It seemed like she wanted to freeze her, the source of the fire.

  “Frost energy? That is far too weak!” Bodhisattva Zi Zhu said coldly. A black rope appeared with a flip of her hand. Then, boundless red fire flared on the rope.

  Boom!

  Bodhisattva Zi Zhu immediately burned away Bing Ji’s cold energy. However, the fire on the rope intensified. Its color turned purple. When she swung the rope, the surrounding Red Lotus Karmic Flame turned purple as well.

  Aside from the Reincarnation King, all the other souls on his side of the plaza vaporized.

  The frost crows could not overcome the purple fire. Some of the frost crows at the edges had their wings lit on fire and shrieked in pain.

  The fire knocked Bing Ji back, causing her expression to change. “This is…the Present Buddha’s Red Lotus Lampwick? Why is it with you?”

  “How would I dare to lay the Red Lotus Karmic Flame Ritual Array without the Red Lotus Lampwick? The Lord Buddha bestowed it on me so that I could destroy demons like you!” Bodhisattva Zi Zhu glared.

  The Red Lotus Lampwick in her hand lashed out again.

  The many fire eagles suddenly turned purplish red, becoming more ferocious.

  Boom! Boom! Boom!

  The fire eagles charged forward, burning away frost crows.

  Many fire eagles surrounded Bing Ji as well. Now, she had her hands full, protecting herself. However, she still used the previous frost crows to defend Gu Hai and Chen Xianer.

  “Your Majesty, leave quickly! Your Majesty!” Bing Ji called out anxiously.

  “Peak Lower Heavenly Palace Realm? Hah! Unfortunately, you do not have your physical body, only your three spiritual souls. You have cultivated only your mortal soul. I am a Middle Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator, having already cultivated my mortal soul and earthly soul! You are inferior to me in the first place. Your cold energy cannot block my Red Lotus Karmic Flame. Watch me burn you!” Bodhisattva Zi Zhu said with a ferocious smile.

  The Reincarnation King stood behind Bodhisattva Zi Zhu, letting out a bated breath and revealing a ferocious smile.

  “Your Majesty, I can’t hold on for much longer. Your Majesty, leave quickly! I’ll open a path for you!” Bing Ji felt anxious, as many of her frost crows were burned away. However, she still protected Gu Hai, trying to open an avenue of escape for him.

  “Flee? None of you can flee! Humph! Look at Gu Hai! He has not even cultivated his three spiritual souls, yet he dares to come to the Human Path Secret Realm? How reckless!” Bodhisattva Zi Zhu sneered.

  “Hus…Husband!” Chen Xianer showed some worry on her face.

  Only now did Gu Hai gently release Chen Xianer. He looked at her carefully. “You are indeed my Xianer! Hahahaha! Hahahahaha!”

  Gu Hai guffawed.

  A cold glint flashed in Bodhisattva Zi Zhu’s eyes. Then, the Red Lotus Lampwick in her hand lashed out once more. Suddenly, a fire eagle ten times the size of the previous ones came out of the Red Lotus Lampwick and rushed at Bing Ji. This larger fire eagle was black. It had started from red, turned purple, and finally black. It even burned some of the purple fire eagles.

  Bing Ji’s expression changed, and she immediately sent out many frost crows. However, the black eagle instantly melted them. It quickly arrived before Bing Ji, wanting to melt her as well.

  Bing Ji had tried her best. Now, her face filled with despair, as she could not block these flames at all.

  Is…is it over?

  “Your Majesty, leave quickly!” Bing Ji suddenly roared tearfully as she charged forward for a head-on clash.

  Just as Bing Ji was about to go down with the black eagle in mutual destruction, Gu Hai grabbed Bing Ji and pulled her behind him.

  “Ah?!” Bing Ji exclaimed.

  Then, Gu Hai extended his right hand to seize the black eagle’s head.

  “Don’t! Your Majesty! That is the Red Lotus Karmic Flame! Don’t!” Bing Ji howled in despair.

  Bodhisattva Zi Zhu revealed a cold smile. “Haha! Blocking with your hand? That eagle is manifested with the Red Lotus Karmic Flame! Only the Samādhi True Flame can block the Red Lotus Karmic Flame! Yet, you are just using one hand? Even if you had your body, you would die for sure! What more with just your weak souls?”

  As Bodhisattva Zi Zhu cackled ferociously, Gu Hai released a fiery light from his palm. It was not the Red Lotus Karmic Flame but a flame from within Gu Hai’s souls, covering his hand.

  Boom!

  The black eagle crashed into Gu Hai’s right palm. However, the expected scene of Gu Hai burning did not happen. Instead, he firmly gripped that black eagle’s neck.

  Squawk!

  The black eagle struggled hard, flapping its wings. However, Gu Hai had his right hand locked around its neck, preventing it from escaping.

  “Hah! A beast is a beast. Such poor memory!” Gu Hai raised his head with a sullen expression. Then, his gaze shifted from the black eagle to Bodhisattva Zi Zhu.
