At the border
of the Myriad Mountains, each king was bidding their tome for hundred of years,
allowing them to grow in power, to the point of enabling them to hold great
wars. But they were still under the thumb of real authority, like Pitfall
Mountain and the Six Kings Alliance.

several hundred spirit stones from his lair, the income he from his territory,
then some mature spiritual herbs from the medicine garden to help in Zhuo
Qingyao's recovery, and stepped on the fiend cloud, speeding into the horizon.
Ming flew with all his might when he used up his spiritual power, he
supplemented it with spirit stones. He was holding two spirit stones in his
hands as it took him three days to arrive at the Cliff Mountain in Yan Empire,
then flew straight to the temporary Regent estate where he roared, "Wang
Meng, get over here!"
Not a moment
later, Wang Meng brought a dozen Dao Initiation realm Relentless Tiger Guards
outside the estate. As his eyes gazed upon Chen Ming, guilt rose inside of him.
He had Chen Ming's sole disciple in his care, yet he was unable to protect her.
Wang Meng couldn't stand on his own as others held him straight.
Chen Ming saw
that Wang Meng's wounds were grave. With how serious his condition was, Chen
Ming didn't continue blaming him. Wang Meng forced himself to his feet,
"Prince, I deserve death, I am useless."
Chen Ming took
a spiritual herb and put it in his hand, "For now, tell me where is Zhuo

Empire, "Tell grandfather and father to prepare an army to destroy the
Wuji Kingdom. I want it raised to the ground."
He then flew
on his fiend cloud towards the Wuji Kingdom, arriving outside the Imperial
Palace a day later. Seeing the dazzling palace, he went inside in crow form. He
didn't fear a straight fight but did fear the Wuji Kingdom but that they would
harm Zhuo Qingyao.
Chen Ming had
some doubts if the Nine Nines Mysteries Art was only a Dao Sense realm
cultivation manual. But even in the Dao Sense realm, he could stand aloof as a
great lord. He was currently pooling all his merits and spiritual knowledge
into the Nine Nines Mysteries Art, "How far can I upgrade the Nine Nines
Mysteries Art right now?"
Because your strength isn't defined by realms, you cannot upgrade the Nine
Nines Mysteries Art, and can only promote it to the 24th stage."

scoured the entire palace and breathed easier when he found her. Chen Ming flew
towards her position, inside the main hall. Zhuo Qingyao was in chains, with a
pale complexion and blood leaking from her mouth.

huge commotion outside, as even a fool knew an intruder came from looking at

here, bringing along even more cultivators, all on flying swords, right behind

grabbed on to Chen Ming's back, her arms circling his neck. Chen Ming knew that
the tortured left hear weak and exhausted, he was afraid she would fall from

using his spiritual power.

back, he walked outside the main hall. From a thousand steps above, Chen Ming
watched the army below and the cultivators in the sky, then laughed,

At the Six

Ling Xian to inform the Great Fiends not to come to pay respects, the main
reason being Zhuo Qingyao bandaged him in a bowknot.

seemed to both understand and not. But he was in no rush, as his cultivation
was still low.
looked at the sword-filled mountain, knowing it took a lot of sword energy out
of Chen Ming, "Master cares a lot about senior sister!"
smiled bashfully, "At least I don't need to eat your senior sister's dark
cooking. It almost took my poor old life."

she still had time to rub her face, her scorching face.

showed the sect's power, bringing glory to the sect.
two sects were in conflict and were they to fight, they would both suffer great
losses. Even the winner would have to pay the cost of several experts. And so,
they chose another way, let their disciples fight each for them.
Immortal Sect was the strongest of them in the kingdoms of the Southern Border.
But because it was too close to the Myriad Mountains, it didn't control many
kingdoms. Yet it didn't impede today's sword trial, further proving the sect's
strongest, the Black Saber Sect, with a Saber King as overseer, prevented
Flying Immortal Sect from influencing the other kingdoms.
Immortal Sect could be said to be a place of great spectacle, with disciples of
great talent coming here to participate from all the other sects. To avoid any
accidents happening to them along the way, the sect sent a team of elders to

At this point,
a Daoist came, "You don't know? the Black Saber Sect has an otherworldly
talent, Mo Yun. They say he is only fifteen years old and already in the Dao

Immortal Sect Sect Leader's daughter. I heard that both sects plan to marry

Mo Yun was
currently touring the Flying Immortal Sect with Hua Qingting as the guide. He
was already fifteen years old, a tall and imposing youth. His hair flowing down
his body, carefree and graceful, yet of wicked presence. He pointed at a white
lotus on an overhanging cliff and said, "Qingting, isn't that the Heavenly

face showed a hint of blush, but Mo Yun already disappeared. Hua Qingting cried
out, "Be careful, it's very slippery!"
later, Mo Yun was in front of Hua Qingting, speaking tenderly, "Let me
help you put it on."
A sudden dark

the Flying Immortal Sect in darkness.

Chen Ming and
Black Tiger landed in front of the main gate, with Ling Xian behind them.
never expected for Black Tiger to be so energetic, but when he heard how Chen
Ming wanted to bring his disciple to a competition, he decided on the spot to
come along and cheer for him. Archfiend Black Tiger said, "Sixth brother,
if it weren't for those maps we wouldn't have had such a relaxing time. With
the Pitfall Mountain sealed off, unaware of outside events, I came with you in
my free time to get to know the Southern Border kingdoms better ."
Chen Ming saw
two old men past their two hundred pointing swords at him. He was somewhat
baffled, "Sigh, are you telling me Flying Immortal Sect's custom is to
point swords out of respect? What a strange rule."
Chen Ming's thoughts, he was still using the identity of an Archfiend. No
wonder Dao Initiation realm cultivators dared to attack.

The two looked
at each other, "Two spiritual swords, they don't seem to be wasted when
they're used to get closer to an Archfiend."
looked at what Ling Xian set his eyes on. He saw how Mo Yun put a Snow Lotus in
Hua Qingting's fine black hair. The two were looking in each other's eyes,
sending intimate looks, and making Ling Xian roll his eyes as he spat,

The bones in

Chen Ming wanted

Mo Yun and Hua

But his danger

comprehension of the Four Elements Array, Chen Ming was now privy on how to use
it. He knew that it needed cultivation methods of the fire, earth, wind and
water elements to set it up.
Form Art was of earth attribute, while the Fire Crow Art was of fire attribute,
but the Heavenly Thunder Nine Changes Art and the Dao Canon weren't suited for
the Four Elements Array. He looked behind and saw the two sect leaders who

out of my chest!
Sect's Sect Leader said, "Sir Archfiend, this cultivation method is the
life of a sect. Why is Sir asking?"
waved his hand and a thousand-year-old spiritual herb landed on the table.
Sect's Sect Leader said, "Sir Archfiend, I'm sure you know this, but a
cultivation method is hard to come by. Our elders shed blood and even lives to
be in its possession."
directly said, "Ten thousand spirit stones."
Sect's Sect Leader said, "Spirit stones won't last forever, but a
cultivation method can hold for a lifetime."

to break your foes and melt metal!"
Sect's Sect Leader shifted his sleeve, then revealed a book, "This is my

waved his hand, putting the cultivation methods inside his ring, then return to
the terrace while inspecting Flying Immortal Sect's guarding array.
Immortal Sect wasn't an old sect, as even their guarding array was only several
hundred years old. His piercing eyes scrutinied everything, and along with his
knowledge of arrays, he easily identified it. The Yin Yang Array had two cores,
and one of them, the spiritual ranked Eluding Pearl, was inside a cave behind a
The other core
laid deep below, in a fire gathering array, to hide the accumulated fire
spiritual energy. Under the might of the great array, yin and yang merged, and
between fire and water, all were turned to dust!

would find himself at half power under the effect of the array!

master was a secondary occupation to a cultivator. It was summed up in two
words: hard and unsuccessful.
The Dao of
arrays was very hard to decipher. And after you did understand it, you'll need
rare and precious materials. Therefore, there was no human ranked array master
in any of the Six Kings Alliance, Pitfall Mountain, Flying Immortal Sect and
Black Saber Sect.
But on this
large stretch of land, there was a legend of an array master. The legendary
array master could draw the power of the heavens without the use of his
cultivation. He could shatter the mountains and overturn the seas, the same
power as a Grand Archfiend.
reckoned that heaven ranked array master, without cultivation, based solely on
his comprehension of arrays, could make the heaven earth the array and the Sun
and Moon as the cores, comparable to a Grand Sovereign.
legacies of array masters were far and few in between, with barely any coming
out in the world, and even fewer people capable of understanding arrays.
glanced at Black Tiger, "Brother Black Tiger, I am already aware of what
this array can do. If Flying Immortal Sect and Black Saber Sect harbor evil, I
will immediately deactivate it."
nodded, It hasn't even been long and Chen Ming already saw through the guarding
array. His array Dao must be deep.
shifted his attention to Ling Xian. With a push from the Flying Immortal Sect's
Sect Leader, Ling Xian entered the quarter-finals along with Mo Yun and Hua Qingting,
but not out of the goodness of his heart. It could be said that Ling Xian was
quite famous before, but more on the infamous side than anything else.
The attack on
the Dao Initiation realm's breakthrough at the age of nine made him famous
throughout the land. And after failing, it also brought endless disgrace.
ago, Ling Xian still couldn't cultivate. How much could he have risen in such a
short amount of time? let's not forget the fact that his Dao Palace was
shattered at that time, so what power could he possibly have now?
Leader of the Flying Immortal Sect wanted to, once again, make a public
humiliation out of Ling Xian.
He wanted Ling
Xian speechless and crushed, to prove to him from that time what a colossal
mistake he made by deciding to have Ling Xian as a son-in-law. That his current
decision, to join with the Black Saber Sect by marriage, was correct.
The jump to
the quarter-finals of the two was in hope of not meeting along the way, but now
it changed into making Ling Xian suffer like never before.
course of several days, thousands of geniuses fought to decide on the five
spots besides Hua Qingting, Mo Yun and Ling Xian.
geniuses were eager to begin and the Sect Leader made them draw lots,
"Whoever gets Ling Xian was the winner!"
Ling Xian is the same as advancing to semifinals."
see who has the bigger luck."
they say that Ling Xian climbed on an Archfiend's leg?"
white-clothed genius among them said, "Look how smooth and white his skin
is, his rear must be even more delicate. This Archfiend might have some weird
kinks, like one man behind the other or sandwiched between two men..."
face went black, Is living too hard for you?
pointed the white-clothed genius to Ling Xian, "Commit that little friend
to mind. If you get him, don't show any mercy, fight the same way you fought
your senior sister."
brows creased, sensing a complication, "Do you really want me to fight
like I did senior sister? Won't that be too ruthless?"
laughed, "He says that you sold your a*s to save your life."
expression changed, now filled with battle spirit, "Yes, Master, disciple
will follow your order to the letter!"
It so happened
that the white-clothed youngster burst in laughter, "Ha-ha-ha, I, Su
Kuang, actually drawn Ling Xian. Luck is on my side!"
Chen Ming let
out a burst of evil laughter, 'Luck indeed!'
and Mo Yun easily dispatched their opponents and advanced. They were in the Dao
Initiation realm, after all, having no problems dealing with Dao Sense realm
And now, it
was finally Ling Xian's turn to fight.
Leader of the Flying Immortal Sect glanced at him, He is still cultivating the
Dao Canon. I can't sense his cultivation, but what cultivation would someone
have when he trained in the Dao Canon?
Over the past
millennia, it was unheard of for someone who cultivated the Dao Canon to reach
the 7th stage of Dao Sense realm, "Fellow Daoist Wandering Crow, if we
stop now, his life might be spared."
were to fight, the outcome would be uncertain."
waved his hand nonchalantly, "No need, Ling Xian might be my weakest
disciple, but he shouldn't have any trouble in this trial."
Leader of the Flying Immortal Sect didn't even doubt the fact that Ling Xian
was the weakest. Just what could he possibly do?
fellow Daoist Wandering Crow insists, then let us bear witness."
On his way to
the stage, Ling Xian passed by Hua Qingting, who said, "Your joining is
pointless. Me and Mo Yun are both in the Dao Initiation realm, and even if you
had the guidance of an Archfiend, what help would it do? We are true geniuses,
and you, a mere supporter role for us geniuses."
coldly stated, "Is Dao Initiation realm that amazing?"
thought there was something wrong with Ling Xian's head, "Of course it's
incredible, and even more so to us, youngsters!"
On a bluestone
stage with a ten-zhang radius, Su Kuang faced Ling Xian with a smile,
"Ling Xian, I urge you to admit defeat and save me for dirtying my hands.
People might say I'm bullying ordinary people!"
Su Kuang also
added, "Oh, right, I'm so sorry, you're cultivating the Dao Canon."
eyes were an endless abyss, pointing at him with his right hand, "Then I
will become serious and fight you the same way I did senior sister."
At his last
word, Ling Xian's spiritual power came out in waves, shaking the entire stage.
He, Ling Xian, was at the Dao Initiation realm!
sneered at Hua Qingting, "You're right, Dao Initiation realm is indeed
amazing! The last time, it took me five years to reach here, and now, only
Su Kuang was
too stunned for words.
Two years ago,
Ling Xian was the most outstanding genius in the Southern Border, with no one
more talented than him.
A year ago,
Ling Xian was the joke at every meal, everyone knew he became a cripple.
ago, no one heard of Ling Xian again, only to pop up, now, as an Archfiend's
disciple. With his cultivation stepping into the Dao Initiation realm!
For him to
reach the Dao Initiation realm in three months, with the Dao Canon no least,
had a profound meaning.
This was a
talent unheard of in the entire history of Southern Border!
The teacup of
the Sect Leader of the Flying Immortal Sect fell from his hands and shattered,
"Dao Initiation realm in three months? Is this your weakest
Chen Ming reflected,
then said, "He can't take a hit from his senior sister."
coming from the Sect Leader from the Flying Immortal Sect was high and filled
with emotion, making it easy for many others to hear it, "What? With this
talent, he is still the weakest disciple? According to what Archfiend said,
Ling Xian can't even take a hit from his senior sister."
freaks was this Archfiend raising?
Or better yet,
did he had a special way of training them?
The eyes of
the young geniuses participants sparkled, If trash like Ling Xian could be
trained to this degree, then how much stronger will we become after he takes us
saw how all eyes were fixed on Chen Ming, So cool! I should also get some
disciples, then send the weakest to competitions. When he'll win then I will
act in the same casual manner as Chen Ming.
cupped his hands towards Su Kuang, "To what you said before, my response
is total focus, to fight you with all I have."
smiled, "Dao Initiation realm. Is it great? You're cultivating the worst
trash of them all, the Dao Canon. Once I defeat you, I will become the world's
concentration peaked, recalling the unshaken figure of senior sister; his eyes
flashed with a hint of fierceness. He extended his finger, "Lightning of
the ninth heaven, hear my call. Descend!"
finger flickered with lightning. His summoning caused the clouds to launch
arm-thick lightning straight at Su Kuang!
Su Kuang was
too slow and burned black, with smoke drifting from him. The stage floor
beneath him also darkened, then puked blood and collapsed, never to get up

what it meant to have the same bearing as her.

one hair on her head.
rushed to the downed Su Kuang, each of his steps shaking his body. There,
lightning flickered along his hands as he struck Su Kuang a dozen times!
Xian stopped, Su Kuang landed outside the stage, his state unknown.
Taking a short
rest, Chen Ming found that these youngsters' eyes had weirder and weirder
glints. Then he heard, "Next fight, Ling Xian versus Hua Qingting!"
The eyes of
the crowd shifted towards the stage, with Hua Qingting pulling a longsword,
"Ling Xian, do you think you can act arrogant now that you're at the Dao
Initiation realm? Your last match wasn't even of the same realm as you. I will
once again prove to everyone, that you're only trash! I am a true genius, a
true proud daughter of heaven!"
The rage in
Ling Xian's eyes began to boil, "I will repay your humiliation a
hundredfold! With your meager talents, you people don't even have the right to
admire my distinguished Master. I've never considered being a genius, I am
Master's weakest disciple. The word 'genius' no longer applies to me."
laughed, "Ha-ha-ha, show me the Dao Canon. How could I have been blinded,
fooled by trash who cultivated the Dao Canon?"
nodded, "I won't waste my words on you. The only reason I came here today,
was to tell the world, that it's not you calling off the engagement, but that
you aren't worthy of me."

long ago how unordinary the Dao Canon was. After the 7th stage of the Dao Sense
realm, Dao Canon's amount of spiritual energy was far above when compared with
other cultivators. When it reached the Dao Initiation realm, it increased to

hard-pressed Hua Qingting with his assault, not giving her the chance to
resist. Under this rain of attacks, Hua Qingting retreated bit by bit, all the
while getting entangled by the lightning!
With a flash
of lightning, Hua Qingting's appearance worsened, as wounds covered her body.
Ling Xian kicked her abdomen and as the lightning went through her, it sent her

nodded, then Black Tiger scooched closer to Chen Ming, "Won't it be a

Mo Yun roared,
"Ha-ha-ha-ha, what, you scared? You won't have such an easy defeat!"
looked as if he heard the biggest joke, "Scared? This tiny Saber Energy is

Ling Xian had

cultivators from the kingdoms in Southern Border wavered between humans and

on Myriad Mountains' overwhelming power. The best would be to display their
power, to make them cower in fear. Or at least stand and watch from the
sidelines, not getting involved in their fight.

a cloud of dust and shaking the ground. Black Tiger's angry roars were heard

a great maelstrom, turning to dust anything that stood in their path!
Chen Ming and
Mo Tian's hair fluttered from the magnitude of their respective weapons. As the
energies clashed, screeching sounds echoed around them with each passing
While the King
battle was underway, Ling Xian didn't miss this chance and made some signs,
"All fiends, on me, destroy Flying Immortal Sect!"
He, with the
bear brothers in tow, went hunting for some Mo Yun, "Adulterous couple,
today I'll slaughter you!"
Mo Tian advanced
while unleashing his Saber Energy towards Chen Ming. The saber came hacking and

Mo Tian showed
astonishment. Chen Ming's attack contained something peculiar to break through

and the cultivators who saw this made sure they far away from their clash.
glanced at Chen Ming and Mo Tian's fight, amazed and happy to find that Chen
Ming gained the upper hand. They knew for a while now that Wandering Crow was a
mere 4th stage of Dao Initiation realm. Even so, they still treated him as a
fellow Archfiend, but in their heart they doubted him, thinking he only had a
devastating magical art. Black Tiger was now assured that Chen Ming's status
wasn't empty and that he didn't become one just recently either.
He was worried
that he would be hard-pressed by Mo Tian, but as matters stood, he no longer
had any misgivings, "Geezer Hua Yang, have a taste of my mace!"

Chen Ming's struggle crushed the ground around them. The only place left
untouched was where they stood. They suddenly skipped over the river, clashing
many times between each jump. When they intersected, havoc was unleashed upon
the water flow, with maelstroms, waves, and explosions everywhere!

water never found peace as the two clashed without stop. It reached a point
when the water touched the heavens, creating clouds and then rain.
Chen Ming charged
at Mo Tian and that simple exchange revealed his advantage. Chen Ming wasn't
one to let this chance slide! The Lustrous King Sword's sword images formed a
great net, trapping Mo Tian within.
Mo Tian knew
how even a simple attack was a struggle for him, that he wasn't Chen Ming's
match. He cleaved the net with his saber then yelled, "Hua Yang, activate
the Flying Immortal Sect's guarding array already!"

He gazed towards the two Human Kings, all smiles, "Foolish geezers, not

Hua Yang and

was crystal clear on the fact that Chen Ming's Four Elements Array didn't
restrict him. He had exquisite control over its power.
If an average
cultivator had set it up, first he needed four cultivators with one of the four
elements, and secondly, their cultivations had to be closely related. They also
needed to be well-coordinated, and even more importantly, they needed to be
familiar with the array. This posed a grave hurdle for cultivators, to the
point that almost no one could accomplish it.
But Chen Ming
laid out an array all on his own. They were all aware of how easy he controlled
it, that he needn't worry if a mishap would occur.

struck again but hesitated. He saw that Chen Ming arrived next to him and
asked, "Master, what should I do?"
glanced at Hua Qingting, so young, yet so vicious and fickle, "What she
likes is your strength, your glory. If you don't kill her today, her time will
come. It's all a question of when."
nodded and cupped his hands, "Disciple understands!"

Ling Xian remove his anguish, Chen Ming refocused on the King battle. He was
quite curious to find out if killing either Hua Yang or Mo Tian would complete
his stage advancement mission. When the mission ended, he would then be allowed
to step into the domain of Archfiends.
With it, his
chances of winning against Archfiend Azure Lion would also rise. Azure Lion
wasn't someone like Hua Yang or Mo Tian, he was a prospective Grand Archfiend!

set, Chen Ming fished out a spiritual sword from his storage ring then went to
clash with Mo Tian.

to fight against two Kings at the same time, looming over them and enjoying it,
"Bro Wandering, watch from the side, for now, see how elder brother deals

Generals have begun fighting. While the other Archfiends are waiting for our

This strike of
his turned out to be his strongest move, wreaking havoc in its wake.
In a normal
situation, Mo Tian wouldn't even care about Chen Ming's attack, but it now had
the power to end his life. Mo Tian's eyes grew bloodshot, "You made me do
this. Since you won't let me live, then everyone will die!"
Mo Tian's left
hand swiped the saber's blade. Blood began to flow along the Demonic Blood Saber,
dyeing it red and causing it to release strands of demonic energy, "You
thought that that was the extent of Demonic Blood Saber's powers? Ha-ha-ha, not
even close. Demonic Blood Saber's seal, open!"

extended his arm and bellowed, "Demonic Blood Saber, to me!"
Mo Tian sensed
how the Demonic Blood Saber wanted to fly out of his hand towards Chen Ming's.
He knew of its temper, that it only recognized this world most wicked, most
ruthless men, especially those that had demonic natures. Even more so when he
used it for so long. Mo Tian fury reached the heavens as he raved, "This
is impossible! Why is the Demonic Blood Saber accepting you!"
smiled, "Nothing's impossible. The impossible isn't impossible since I
haven't done it yet."
