Chapter 505 Devils' method
"Master, please spare me. I will do anything as long as you command", Zou Kui knelt down immediately after hearing Zhan Chen's words. Even a ruthless devil like him couldn't help but shiver when he heard Zhan Chen's ruthless command.
"Have you ever thought about leniency when you are torturing human girls?", Zhan Chen looked towards Zou Kui. He was not a cold blooded cultivator but the deeds of these five devils, chilled him to the core. Anything else like mass killing, sacrificing souls were fine because they had a purpose but these five were torturing human girls for their entertainment. Zhan Chen felt boundless fury surging inside him when he recalled the helpless faces of all the girls these five had tortured.
"Master, please", Zou Kui pleaded again. Infront of death, all his dignity as a proud devil from the Abhorst empire disappeared.
"Fine, I am not you. I will not force you to do the deed yourself", Zhan Chen spoke. He pushed his hand forward and five tiny sword rays came out from his palm. Zou Kui couldn't even react when the tiny sword ray punctured his heart. His four companions put up a momentary struggle but their resistance was futile infront of Zhan Chen's might.
"Now, let's see if I can refine your souls. Initially I am against such practices but I will not feel anything even I refine your filthy souls", Zhan Chen murmured to himself. He collected five lumps of intangible soul and started to refine them with his soul energy.
'This is more troublesome than I think. These devils' souls have too many impurities', he thought to himself.
He kept refining the souls for a while and finally the five lumps of soul became completely free of impurities. "This is a gift to three of you. If this method works on you three, I can use this method for my women", Zhan Chen murmured.
The three girls who were fully asleep felt like they were becoming more powerful in their dreams. Their souls strengthened as a whole and their fatigue started to fade away. All three of them opened their eyes at the same time and found Zhan Chen looking at them.
"Follow me. I will send you to the Xuantian sect's camp", Zhan Chen spoke. He didn't even give them the opportunity to speak as he started to walk towards the distance.
The three young girls finally came to their sense after Zhan Chen started to walk away. There are too many things they wanted to say to Zhan Chen. There are too many gratitudes to pay to him. But Zhan Chen didn't give them the opportunity. They took a look at the fallen devils and hurried over to follow behind.
Zhan Chen brought them to the small hamlet where Sima Chunhua was Cultivating. "Senior brother, thanks very much. We couldn't have survived if you have not fought off the devils on our behalf", the three girls spoke. They bent their waists and bowed to Zhan Chen.
"Relax, this is the least I can do. I will send you to the Xuantian sect camp after senior sister finishes her cultivation", Zhan Chen spoke. He sat down cross legged and started to cultivate under the glowing sun.
The three girls didn't even realise as they stared towards Zhan Chen while he was cultivating. It was only after few minutes when they realised what they were doing.
"Sister Rui, senior brother is so handsome. I have never seen anyone more perfect than him", a young girl spoke.
"We should learn senior brother's name. I can guarantee that he most be a renowned figure among the disciples of the Xuantian sect", another of her companion spoke.
"We have nowhere to go. In this case, we can only follow senior brother's instructions. We should remember his kindness in our heart. If there is a chance for repayment, we should gladly volunteer", the most stoic one among the three girls spoke. She was eldest and most mature girl among the three. There was gratitude and some unknown emotions in her eyes as she looked towards Zhan Chen.
White Luan town, it was a small town in between the Yellow stone city and the Jade harmony city. As a town located in between the two biggest cities of the Earth province, it generally catered to the travelling cultivators. The town was generally filled with peace loving, amiable people who offers the visitors with best hospitality one could offer. The small town was under the direct protection of the imperial Xie family. So, no misfits dare cause trouble in the small town.
The White Luan town which used to be a small paradise in the turmoil filled Northern desert continent, now appeared gloomy and abandoned.
There was bright sun in the distant sky yet it seemed like it's rays couldn't penetrate the veil of darkness in the White Luan city. It had turned into a frontier stronghold of the devils who had changed the warm atmosphere into a sinister, devilish paradise.
Strange devilish creatures had filled the White Luan city now. Many of them were thorny plant like species which were used to modify the surrounding air. Devils were using these plant like creatures to change the atmosphere of the White Luan city.
"Bring over the corpses", a devil who was standing closer to the boundary wall of the White Luan city shouted. He was standing closer to a sinister looking plant which had tentacle like branches. What was scary was every tentacle had a mouth like part at the top of it. Poisonous liquids were falling off from the mouth like parts which gave an illusion that the strange creature was salivating.
The liquid had a foul smell and it corroded the ground whenever a drop of liquid fell on the soil. The devils pulled a batch of human corpses and brought them closer to the sinister looking plant.
'Tip! Tap!', it was as if a humongous beast was drooling. Large drops of poisonous liquid came out from the mouths of the tentacles. The devils ran away after bringing the corpses closer. The thorny tentacles immediately pounced upon the corpses as soon as the devils brought them over.
The sinister plant strangely pulsated after devouring all the human corpses. Few minutes later, it emitted a large amount of devilish essence into the surrounding.
"Good, continue to feed it corpses. As long as the corpse eater fiend tree with us, we can convert any place in this world", the devil who was incharge of supervising the sinister looking tree spoke. He signalled his subordinates and they brought over another batch of human corpses.
