EIF - Book 04 Chapter 118: Count to Three

The Bat Ancestor, Archduke Xi Kang, and the Chang Clan members felt extremely excited when they verified that the overwhelming noble spirit was from a holy Dao scripture. They quickly led their zombie army over.

“A holy Dao scripture? Why is there a holy Dao scripture here?” Archduke Xi Kang said with a bright gleam in his eyes.

“Archduke Xi Kang, aren’t you searching for Bing Ji? Why are you coming as well?” The Bat Ancestor felt anxious as he flew.

The Chang Clan members remained silent.

Archduke Xi Kang smiled coldly at the Bat Ancestor.

“Bat Ancestor, with a holy Dao scripture appearing, it naturally goes to whoever obtains it. Are you thinking of monopolizing it?” Archduke Xi Kang asked coldly.

“Haha! Monopolize? Do you think you can fight me?” the Bat Ancestor retorted coldly.

“I know that the Chang Clan supports you. However, let’s let our individual abilities decide who gets the holy Dao scripture. What do you think?” Archduke Xi Kang suggested.

“Alright. It shall be based on our individual abilities!” The Bat Ancestor showed a cold smile.

Clearly, the Bat Ancestor did not think much of Archduke Xi Kang’s strength. However, he still kept his guard up.

This group flew rapidly while leading the zombie army. Soon, they could clearly see the scene created by the noble spirit world.

They saw red characters like blazing suns floating in the air. A holy air washed over, and the majestic recital added to the grandeur.

“It is indeed a holy Dao scripture!” Everyone’s face lit up in joy, and greed flashed in their eyes.

“We are searching for Bing Ji for His Reverence. However, there is no need to hand this holy Dao scripture to His Reverence!” the Bat Ancestor said excitedly.

However, their excitement died shortly after.

“Stop!” The Bat Ancestor suddenly shouted, his expression changing.

“Stop!” Archduke Xi Kang and the Chang Clan elders shouted as well. Their expressions also changed dramatically.

Boom!

The massive zombie army stopped, staring into the distance together with the Bat Ancestor and the others.

“The Great Light Sovereign Deity?” The Bat Ancestor’s expression changed.

If it were another person, the Bat Ancestor might be willing to try and snatch the holy Dao scripture. However, it was the Great Light Sovereign Deity.

“Why is it the Great Light Sovereign Deity? How could it be him?” Archduke Xi Kang’s expression changed as well.

Who was the Great Light Sovereign Deity? That was the expert who fought Imperial Emperor Xi Yu to a draw in Major Metropolitan City not long ago.

He does indeed have a holy Dao scripture—the one that he snatched in Major Metropolitan City. Are we going to snatch it back?

At this thought, everyone felt chills. Snatch a holy Dao scripture from the Great Light Sovereign Deity? Isn’t that just seeking death?

Everyone stopped, showing an unsightly expression and not daring to advance further.

“Roar! Roar!”

Dragon roars rang out, and a dragon carriage suddenly flew out from a tear in space.

“What is that?” Archduke Xi Kang goggled.

The Bat Ancestor rubbed his eyes.

“That’s impossible. That bone dragon? That is the Myriad Bone Sinister Mountain’s White Bone Divine General transformed? The nether fire dragon is the East Spiritual Fire Sea’s Nether Fire Divine Commander transformed?” The Bat Ancestor rubbed his eyes again.

“The White Bone Divine General? The Nether Fire Divine Commander?” the vampires behind parroted in shock.

Naturally, everyone understood the meaning of these words. Back at the Slaughter Nation’s imperial palace, Lifespan Dongfang summoned the White Bone Divine General. However, the Unborn Man summoned both the Nether Fire Divine Commander and the White Bone Divine General to defeat Lifespan Dongfang.

Be it the White Bone Divine General or the Nether Fire Divine Commander, they were both in the early-stage Upper Heavenly Palace Realm. The Upper Heavenly Palace Realm!

Yet, these two Upper Heavenly Palace experts were willing to take the form of dragons to pull a carriage?

Who exactly is in this carriage?

Then, everyone saw a woman in imperial robes step out of the distant dragon carriage.

“A woman?” Archduke Xi Kang felt slightly startled.

------

When Ba came out of the dragon carriage, her eyes narrowed slightly as she looked at the Great Light Sovereign Deity.

“Little peacock, you still remember us?” Ba said indifferently.

The Great Light Sovereign Deity’s face twitched, appearing unsightly.

“You…indeed, you came out in the end,” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said as his eyelids twitched wildly.

At this moment, the Great Light Sovereign Deity did not dare to get angry at being called a little peacock. He only felt strangely conflicted.

“The Blazing Sun True Scripture? What a coincidence! We came out here to deal with something, and we ran into the Blazing Sun True Scripture. We want it,” Ba said indifferently.

As Ba spoke, she extended her hand to grab.

The Great Light Sovereign Deity suddenly protested furiously, “Wait, that is mine! Jiang Ba, you—”

“Huh?” Ba glared, a baleful aura rushing out.

The Great Light Sovereign Deity stopped in midsentence.

“The Blazing Sun True Scripture? I’ll take it as a present, your filial respect for us!” Ba said coldly.

Filial respect?

The Great Light Sovereign Deity appeared depressed. Who wants to be filial to you?

“Also, we are not Jiang Ba. We are Ba!” Ba said coldly.

“No, this holy Dao scripture is mine. No one can take it away!” The Great Light Sovereign Deity immediately showed a fierce expression.

However, Ba ignored the Great Light Sovereign Deity, extending her hand and grabbing the holy Dao scripture.

Boom!

Five-color divine light suddenly soared up from behind the Great Light Sovereign Deity. His ferocious expression suggested that he would make a move.

“Roar!”

“Roar!”

The bone dragon and the nether fire dragon roared at the Great Light Sovereign Deity. However, he ignored the two giant dragons, only showing a ferocious look at Ba.

Ba ignored the Great Light Sovereign Deity. Instead, she just focused on retracting the holy Dao scripture she held.

Whoosh!

The characters from the holy Dao scripture returned. The overwhelming noble spirit returned as well.

The five-colored divine light behind the Great Light Sovereign Deity wavered. He showed a ferocious expression, wanting to charge forward several times. However, he stopped himself every time.

As Ba held the Blazing Sun True Scripture, she turned her head to look at the Great Light Sovereign Deity. From the start to the end, she showed a calm expression, not affected by the Great Light Sovereign Deity’s ferocious expression at all.

Far away, Gu Hai took a deep breath. His understanding of Ba increased.

Who was before him? It was the Great Light Sovereign Deity, a person who did not give in even to Imperial Emperor Xi Yu. He had a ferocity and pride that looked down on everything in the world. Yet, he turned soft before Ba.

Ba took his belongings right from under his nose, but he did not even dare to make a move.

“What’s wrong? Are you planning on attacking us?” Ba asked indifferently.

“That is mine! I have to hand that to my master!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said frostily as he stared at the Blazing Sun True Scripture.

“The Supreme Singularity? Are you still following the Supreme Singularity? You are quite cute when you are fierce. Ha!” A faint trace of contempt flashed in Ba’s eyes.

Quite cute?

Gu Hai, Bing Ji, the Bat Ancestor, Archduke Xi Kang, and the others rolled their eyes. How is he cute? How is this cute in any way? That is the look of someone who wants to kill.

“It has been three thousand years. Ba, it is no longer three thousand years ago. Humph! Back then, you were a madwoman, completely lawless. This is not the same as back then. Don’t push me. You had better return my Blazing Sun True Scripture, otherwise…,” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said in an icy tone.

“Madwoman?” Ba’s eyes suddenly turned cold, her expression changing on a whim.

A baleful aura immediately pressed on the Great Light Sovereign Deity, chilling the surroundings. Snowflakes appeared out of nowhere and drifted down. The Great Light Sovereign Deity grunted.

“Did you call us a madwoman? How dare you call us a madwoman? It has been three thousand years. Indeed, it has been three thousand years. Come on. Let us see how much more incredible you have become in three thousand years. We will let you have the first move,” Ba said coldly.

The Great Light Sovereign Deity raised his hand as his face twitched.

Far away, the Bat Ancestor, Archduke Xi Kang, and the others felt stupefied. Where did this woman come from?

Gu Hai turned to Bing Ji, slightly surprised.

“Your Majesty, most people would not dare to attack Ba,” Bing Ji said with a bitter smile.

“Why?” Gu Hai asked in confusion.

“Her way of doing things is extremely strange. Back then, she killed anyone who attacked her,” Bing Ji said with a bitter smile.

“Oh?”

“That’s why all the experts back then called her a madwoman. It is because of her way of doing things: either you die, or I die. If the Great Light Sovereign Deity dares to attack her, Ba will target him. Even if he runs back to the Solar Divine Palace, she will pursue him relentlessly. Even if the Supreme Singularity shows up, it will be useless. That’s why even though the Great Light Sovereign Deity is furious and considers himself very strong, he does not dare to attack Ba,” Bing Ji said with a bitter smile.

Even the Great Light Sovereign Deity does not dare to attack this woman?

“I gave you face, but you refused it. Now, we will count to three. If you still don’t scram by then, we will attack,” Ba said in a frosty tone.

The Great Light Sovereign Deity’s expression turned stiff.

“One!” Ba said coldly.

The Great Light Sovereign Deity stared at the holy Dao scripture with extreme reluctance.

“Two!” Ba spoke again.

“Mine! Mine!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said, feeling depressed.

Then, he turned his head and looked at Gu Hai. It’s Gu Hai’s fault. I would not have lost the holy Dao scripture and offended this madwoman if not for him.

“Three?” Ba glared.

“Humph! Crazy! Madwoman! I will be back!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity roared furiously.

Boom!

Suddenly, an enormous peacock image appeared. When it flapped its wings, the Great Light Sovereign Deity disappeared into the horizon.

He fled?

Nearly everyone goggled.

That is the Great Light Sovereign Deity, yet Ba frightened him away just by counting to three? What kind of joke is this?

Even Bing Ji had an incredulous expression as she watched the Great Light Sovereign Deity disappear over the horizon. “I know about Ba through the records. However, the records did not clearly illustrate her influence on the world. This Great Light Sovereign Deity is even older than Ba, yet when he faced her…”

Gu Hai narrowed his eyes at the distant Ba.

As Ba watched the Great Light Sovereign Deity leave, she maintained a cold expression.

Then, she turned her head to the south.

When she looked over, the Bat Ancestor, Archduke Xi Kang, and the others were horrified, their eyelids twitching wildly.

“Oh? A bunch of insignificant yinggou zombies? What’s wrong? Are you thinking of snatching our Blazing Sun True Scripture?” Ba asked indifferently.

“N…n…no!” The Bat Ancestor’s expression immediately changed dramatically.

“Passing by! We were just passing by!” Archduke Xi Kang shouted.

What a joke! You can scare away the Great Light Sovereign Deity just by counting to three. How could we dare to rob you?

“We are leaving! We are leaving now!” the Bat Ancestor called out.

“Let’s go!” the Yuan Dynasty officials shouted, and they led the zombie army back the way they came.

The holy Dao scripture was something good. However, they needed courage first to try and snatch it away.

Ba watched coldly as the Bat Ancestor and the others left. Then, she slowly put the holy Dao scripture away.

Then, she turned her head to look at Gu Hai and Bing Ji. Thinking nothing of them, she stepped back into her dragon carriage.

“Roar!”

“Roar!”

The two giant dragons roared and pulled the dragon carriage north.

Search hosted.novel for the original.

Whoosh!

The dragon carriage flew off, leaving a shocked Gu Hai and Bing Ji.

Hey guys, you all probably have been seeing the occasional message about Patreon and how EIF isn't doing very well financially. So I held out as long as I can, and unfortunately, things are not looking up. In the interest of being able to keep up a sustainable income to pay my bills and pay the team sufficiently, I'm going to have to lower the release rates of EIF in favor of picking up another novel. As of now, I have not found another novel yet, but I will be decreasing the release rates from May onwards so that I have time to search for the next novel. For now, the rates will be lowered to 30 chapters a month, essentially daily chapters.
