9 Heavenly Thunder Manual Chapter 321-324


Chapter 321 – Doing What He Promised

Without letting Liu Hao say a word, Yanrong turned around and faced the townsfolk. “What are you guys standing around for? Go prepare the feast!”

“Oh yea, right!”

There was a sudden flurry of chaos as everyone went off to prepare. It was quite lively as some were killing the animals while others were decorating the place.

Liu Hao made a thought and two beams of light flashed. In front of everyone, two beautiful women appeared; they were no longer girls anymore.

Even though they had appearances in their late twenties, they still revealed an aura that caused men to swoon all over them. This type of charm wasn’t something young girls would have. For women their age, this was the most attractive time for men who enjoyed their mature yet still youthful looks.

“Cui Ying Ying, Nami.” Liu Hao pointed at the two beauties and introduced them in a simple manner.

Even though there were many pretty girls in town, these two still made the men unable to move their eyeballs away. Yanrong’s eyes were round and wide as he swallowed hard, while Tian Ye shifted his gaze off to the side in case he started fantasizing.

There was a townsfolk off to the side about to slaughter an animal yet accidently put the knife on his hand and started slicing a few times in a daze. The animal being slaughtered was actually staring at this person with a strange gaze as if it was staring at a retard.

“Aghh!” This person finally realized what happened and cried out in pain as the blood started gushing out.

Cui Ying Ying and Nami were both pretty much wearing the same type of clothes – they were still in their business attire. The most irresistible part was that those two were wearing work skirts that revealed their long slender legs, causing any man to desire reaching out to touch.

After the simple introductions, Liu Hao once again asked about the path towards the Immortal World. Even if there were many obstacles in front of him, he still had to find Lei Yu, a task that was impossible to drop.

The feast at dinner was very luxurious; the town’s way of barbecuing the meat had its own unique taste. Liu Hao, Nami, and Cui Ying Ying had never tasted such flavors. Even though they were eating some unknown animal, the meat was very tender and extremely delicious. Liu Hao personally devoured the entire hind leg of the animal. But the image of Liu Hao eating wasn’t as exaggerated as Yanrong; Yanrong was holding onto half an animal and just tearing out chunks of meat with his mouth. Amongst all the men, it seems like Tian Ye was the most cultured. He wasn’t eating small bites like a woman but he was much better than the other men. At least he was using a dagger to cut his meat.

In order to make it more fun, those girls that had been saved by Lei Yu had changed to those silky transparent clothing they hadn’t worn in a long time. Of course, those silk clothing were on the outside while they were wearing other clothing on the inside. One of the girls had a flute in her hands and beautiful music was being blown out by her experienced mouth. The other girls started dancing in a beautiful manner creating a wondrous scenery. This was something even Lei Yu had never seen before, but that was because Lei Yu was in such a rush back then. Then again, those girls had just been rescued and wouldn’t be in the mood to display their dance abilities so leisurely.

Liu Hao made a swiping motion with his hands and a white bottle filled with clear alcohol appeared in his grasp.

“Maotai?” Tian Ye and Yanrong glanced at each other, “What is that?”

“It’s a brand of alcohol.” Upon opening the lid, the thick pure scent of liquor came out causing Tian Ye and Yanrong to unconsciously close their eyes to take in a deep breath.

Liu Hao then picked up some bowls on the table and was able to pour out three bowls from that single bottle.

“Fragrant! This smells really fragrant!” Yanrong felt intoxicated with the scent upon sniffing it closely. The usually loud and boisterous Yanrong suddenly took tiny sips as if he was afraid a single gulp would finish it.

After being filled with alcohol and food, Liu Hao and the other four were now sitting inside a small hut.

“How about I accompany you all to the Immortal World?” Tian Ye said in a straightforward manner.

“How can such a thing work? This town still requires you two to protect it so how can we allow you to come with us?” Said Cui Ying Ying.

“I’m actually really worried about brother Lightning’s safety. Also, you guys haven’t experienced the dangers of the Chaotic Star Sea so you don’t know how scary it is. It’s not a place that anyone can successfully go through. It’s fortunate that I was lucky back then and managed to find a relatively safe path going there and back. With me guiding you guys, it might improve the safety level for your group.” Tian Ye explained.

Yanrong nodded on the side, “I think you guys shouldn’t refuse it. Brother Tian Ye can take care of you guys along the way, and don’t worry about this town’s protection. Brother Lightning had previously killed a tyrant for us so the current outer periphery of the Chaotic Star Sea is very peaceful, and nothing dangerous has appeared lately.”

It was hard to decline their good intentions so Liu Hao and the two beauties glanced at each other before nodding. “Then we will thank you in advance!”

“No need for such words!”

It was while this group were chatting that Liu Hao and the two beauties found out why Lei Yu was their benefactor.

They had a long journey ahead of them. After resting in town for the night, Liu Hao and Tian Ye no longer delayed this and were prepared to leave. Before they left, Liu Hao left a case of alcohol making Yanrong extremely happy!

In another area.

“The Sovereign is back.” Lei Yu smiled while Ai Er and Nuo Hu stood up in unison. The three of them walked out and the Sovereign happened to be in the midst of descending to the ground.

Upon seeing Lei Yu, the Thunder Rune Sect’s Sovereign became ecstatic. The Sovereign was still wearing the same black long robe with golden embroidery on the edge. Just like other people of the Immortal Realm, his face did not show any signs of aging.

“Lightning, it’s really you!”

“Greetings Sovereign.”

“Good, good! It’s good that you came back!” The Sovereign was so excited he didn’t know what to say. He originally lost hope in Lei Yu since seven years had passed by without any news of him. He had already stopped thinking of this matter until Lei Yu suddenly appeared again, doing what he had promised before – he had really returned!

He invited Lei Yu and company straight to the main halls of the Thunder Rune Sect and immediately had them all sit to the sides.

“These two are?”

“This person is my sworn big brother, Nuo Hu.”

“Sovereign!” Nuo Hu stood up and cupped his hands, his gentle temperament made the Sovereign nod in satisfaction.

“This person is my dao partner, Nuo Ai Er. Those two are brother and sister.” Lei Yu introduced his lover sitting beside him.

“It’s truly a beauty that matches with a hero. Lightning, you have really good fortune when it comes to love! Haha…”

Those words made Ai Er blush. Lei Yu cupped his hands, “You’re teasing us… Sovereign, we came this time because we have some things to give you but we have to leave after that. Once we have taken care of some matters, I will definitely come back to fulfill my promise!”

“How come you have to leave again?” Hearing that Lei Yu had to leave, the Sovereign couldn’t help feel disappointed.

“Don’t worry, what this one says, I will surely accomplish!”

“Good! It is good as long as you will return! But do you have an accurate timeframe?” Since Lei Yu has stepped twice into the grounds of the Thunder Rune Sect, it shows he is one that keeps his words. The Sovereign had a good impression of him and this time, he could clearly feel there was something different about Lei Yu but just couldn’t pinpoint it.

After thinking for a bit, Lei Yu faintly smiled, “Perhaps I’ll have to wait until I’m at the late Soul Splitting stage before I can completely take care of my matters. By that time, I will bring my lover and my brother together back here!”

=========

Chapter 322 – Such An Imposing Name

“Late… late Soul Splitting stage? This…” The Sovereign felt Lei Yu was kidding with him.

“Yeah, it shouldn’t take too long. I want to train from the late Soul Fusion to the late Soul Splitting stage, so it won’t take too much time. I just need to find a suitable place for cultivation and it’ll be good.” This wasn’t considered much to Lei Yu, especially when he already had an ideal location – the Devil King’s Castle. But his casual words had completely stunned the Sovereign.

After a while, the Sovereign cleared his throat, “You just said something about the late Soul Fusion stage… what did you mean by that?” While saying that, one can clearly hear his voice trembling.

Lei Yu finally realized the atmosphere and smiled, “It is indeed what I’ve said, this one has already reached the late Fusion Soul stage.”

The Sovereign suddenly stood up with a “bang.” He ran in front of Lei Yu and sent out his perception to investigate him. But no matter how much he tried, he wasn’t able to detect any energy fluctuations from Lei Yu.

“You… you… you’ve really reached the late Fusion Soul stage?! Is this for real?” While constantly clearing his throat, the Sovereign looked like he was staring at a monster and couldn’t believe what his ears heard.

“Uh… yes, that’s correct!” Lei Yu once again affirmed.

The Sovereign took a few steps back, “This is incredible, simply too inconceivable!” After saying that in a trembling voice, he then said: “Seven years ago you were only at the late Gold Core stage. When I found out that you had only used up two months time to go from the early to the late stages, I was already shocked beyond words. I never imagined that in these short seven years, you have already surpassed the Nascent Soul and reached the peak of the Fusion Soul stage. This is simply too unbelievable!”

Lei Yu lightly smiled, “Perhaps my cultivation method is suited for my body. Oh right, I came back here for another reason as well.”

“Oh? What is it?”

While saying that, Lei Yu made a thought and a round ball appeared in his hand. The round ball was transparent and had a light purple glow to it. Ai Er, Nuo Hu, and the Sovereign could clearly sense the round ball contained a very powerful explosive energy inside it.

“This thing looks really familiar!” The Sovereign looked at it in a strange manner.

After careful consideration, Lei Yu decided there was no longer any need to hide anything. Otherwise, there will be too many things to explain in the future since so much has happened.

“Sovereign, the mortal world’s Lei Sect… do you know of it?”

The Sovereign sucked in a cool breath and his eyes widened. “Could… could it be…”

“That’s right; this one is a descendant of the Mortal World’s Lei Sect – Lei Yu!” After saying that, there were no changes in Lei Yu’s demeanor. On the other hand, the Sovereign’s heart started beating like crazy and his eyes looked like they were about to jump out of its socket.

“You’re saying that you’re the descendant of the Lei Sect?!” Asked the Sovereign as he grabbed onto Lei Yu’s shoulder, clearly more excited than before by thousands of times.

“Yes I am.” Lei Yu wasn’t willing to tell the Sovereign of what happened between him and the Lei family in the Mortal World. Even though he was unwilling to go back to the Lei family, he was still undeniably from that clan. No matter what, in the end his father was still there and Lei Yu was someone that looked heavily upon relationships. Although he had a big conflict with the Lei clan, but if something happened, Lei Yu would still immediately rush back to their aid. Perhaps people may say he was stupid, but for him, this was a responsibility for being a member of the Lei family.

“Good… good! A genius has appeared in the Lei Sect! Haha…” The Sovereign seemed to be overly excited to the point where his voice even changed, but he didn’t care one bit.

“Don’t worry Sovereign, as long as I, Lei Yu is here, I will definitely use all my means to help you and the Thunder Rune Sect. I believe there will be one day that the Thunder Rune Sect will have a position as one of the five great Sects!”

“Child, just those words of yours is enough! Go ahead and take care of your matters! I will stay and not leave while waiting for your return. During this time, I will also focus on increasing my strength. Ever since our ancestor left, our Thunder Rune Sect had plummeted from the peaks of its glory. I have also stayed too long at the late Fusion Soul stage…!”

It wasn’t difficult for Lei Yu to hear the pain within the Sovereign’s words.

“I have with me three Heavenly Thunder Beads that were created at my current Fusion Soul stage. I believe it should have some uses if the Thunder Rune Sect was to encounter any issues. Please hold onto them.” Lei Yu then placed those beads into the Sovereign’s hand.

“Three of them?! You actually refined three of them! Wait… you said these were Heavenly Thunder Beads?” Refining these spiritual beads was a special ability for the Lei Sect and other outsiders weren’t able to grasp the concept. But even so, under normal circumstances, a single Lei family member being able to refine one or two of these beads in their lifetime was already an incredible feat. And they were merely Heavenly Flame Beads. Now that Lei Yu actually brought out Heavenly Thunder Beads, the Sovereign felt this was extremely strange.

Lei Yu nodded and pulled up his sleeves, revealing the unique brand the Lei family members had.

The Sovereign almost fainted and it was only after while did his lips trembled, “You have the lightning brand! You have the lightning brand!”

In the short amount of time with Lei Yu, he, a Sovereign that had experienced the vicissitudes of life almost couldn’t handle all the amount of shock given to him. He almost didn’t dare to believe all this was real, thinking he must be in a dream or something.

It was a dream for any Sovereign to bring their Sect to its peak of glory. This wasn’t greed or ambition; it was pretty much a responsibility every Sovereign had. Now that the chance was within his grasp, it was unavoidable for him to be so excited. This sudden barrage of good news was similar to him waking up from a nightmare that had lasted hundreds of years.

“There’s more.” From his Universal Pouch, Lei Yu took out a handwritten book. It was something he had personally copied from the original.

The Sovereign’s hand was trembling as he received the book, “The last half of the Heavenly Thunder Manual?”

“The Heavenly Thunder Manual is something only people with the lightning brand are able to cultivate. But after careful research by me, I found out that with a few adjustments of one’s internal energy, it’s suitable for our clan members with the flame brand to cultivate. This cultivation method isn’t bad and it should be useful to you.”

The Sovereign’s mouth opened and closed a few times but no words came out before he exhaled a long breath of air. Lei Yu and company noticed the Sovereign’s eyes had turned red and didn’t know what to say to him. It felt like they would rather be in a dangerous situation than dealing with this current quiet scene. Lei Yu then decided not to say a thing.

After a while, the Sovereign raised his head and the tears didn’t come out. He then smiled from the bottom of his heart, “Thank you!”

What did the Heavenly Thunder Manual represent? Back then, because of the latter half of the Heavenly Thunder Manual and the legendary Sky Devouring Sword, many clan members killed each other resulting in numerous casualties. And now, the Heavenly Thunder Manual had arrived in his hands. This was equivalent to the Thunder Rune Sect taking a big leap forward!

“There’s no need to be so polite. You are technically my ancestor right? As one of the junior generation, this is something that I should be doing. But can you help me with one thing?”

“Just say it!” The Sovereign slapped his chest and said: “No matter what it is, as long as you say it, I Lei Ba Tian¹ will definitely accomplish it!”

“Woa, what an imposing name!” Nuo Hu couldn’t help saying in a low voice.

Lei Yu waved his hand, “It’s not a huge matter, I just want you to help me create a furnace, one for refining medicinal pills. It’ll be fine to finish it by the time I come back. Oh yeah, I have some purple crystal stones with me. Take it as the cost of materials to create the furnace.” Knowing that the Thunder Rune Sect were having difficulties with their finances, Lei Yu didn’t plan on having them fork out the cost. It’s just that upon hearing Lei Yu mention purple crystal stones, it almost caused Lei Ba Tian to fall out of his chair.

=====

Chapter 323 – Holding In The Tears

A block of purple crystal the size of a park bench appeared in front of Lei Yu and Lei Ba Tian. This was without a doubt a block of pure purple crystal stone and it made Lei Ba Tian unconsciously stretch out his hand to touch it.

In order for the Thunder Rune Sect’s livelihood, he had been rushing all over the place. After several days, he was only able to earn a few dozen white crystal stones from some small Sects after selling them his Heavenly Flame Beads. But now, such a large body of crystal was right in front of him causing him to rub his eyes a few times wondering if he was seeing an illusion.

“Sovereign, this block of crystal should be able to be cut up into several hundred normal sized purple crystals. It’s just that I don’t have any methods to cut them up so I can only take out the whole thing. Perhaps the only people capable of cutting it up are the Violet Gold Hall.”

“I can’t accept this, I can’t accept this!” Lei Ba Tian wasn’t a greedy person. Even though he was grateful for Lei Yu’s action, this was the first time in his life witnessing such a large fortune. This block was equivalent to a blood crystal stone or even more. Even when the Thunder Rune Sect was at its peak of glory, their wealth was only equivalent to what was in front of him right now.

“Don’t decline this Sovereign. I, Lei Yu am a descendant of the Lei Sect so isn’t my wealth equivalent to my clan’s here? So what need is there to refuse it?” Lei Yu’s words made Lei Ba Tian unable to respond.

He grabbed onto Lei Yu’s hand since the extremely grateful him was already speechless. Lei Yu’s arrival to the Thunder Rune Sect had cause humongous changes and he would deeply remember all of this. A decision had started to take root in Lei Ba Tian’s mind.

After taking care of everything, Lei Yu didn’t want to delay his journey anymore. He then brought Ai Er and Nuo Hu to the south, his target location was the Southern Wild Lands where Telephassa and the bull-head were waiting. There was one very good news Lei Yu really wanted to tell that infatuated goddess.

Lei Yu’s non-stop journeying already revealed how anxious he was.

In another area, Liu Hao and Tian Ye’s zigzagging allowed them to avoid many dangers but that didn’t mean everything would go smoothly. They had still encountered many cultivators blocking their path, but they managed to eventually repel them off. All this credit actually belonged to Liu Hao making Tian Ye beyond shocked. It looks like everyone related to Lightning wasn’t simple since even his disciple was so powerful!

In fact, Liu Hao was able to become this tough was because of his bright golden broadsword! Where did this broadsword come from? Not many people knew this but there was relationship between his broadsword and a Qilin’s power.

Lei Yu’s journey wasn’t considered far since it only took him about three days. The three of them arrived at the periphery of the Southern Wild Lands where rivers crisscrossed. Lei Yu had already detected people he was familiar with from a distance so they began descending.

“Has the cultivation process been smooth for you two?”

The two toads were currently sunbathing their backs on land when they sensed the arrival of some people. They squinted through their eyelids in a lazy manner but were suddenly shocked and almost fell into the water.

“Lord Lightning! You… you’re back! You’re really back!” The slightly large toad cried out in shock.

Lei Yu was a bit surprised, “How did you know I was called Lightning? I believe I haven’t told you two my name before.”

“You don’t know but during these past five years, the Demon King and Her Majesty have sent forth numerous demonic cultivators in order to find news of you. But since there were no traces of you, they issued a new decree. As long as one was able to find traces of you Lord Lightning, no matter which territory the demonic cultivator was from, they would have unconditional freedom to enter the city. In addition, they would be allowed to cultivate inside the Devil King’s Castle for an entire year!” The large toad explained.

Lei Yu lightly frowned, realizing his position in the bull-head’s heart was truly quite important. In order to search for him, the bull-head would actually offer the Devil King’s Castle as a reward when he had never allowed anyone access to it before. And to allow them a full year of cultivation time… this made Lei Yu very touched and at the same time, apologetic. He then said to himself: “I’m sorry Telephassa; I have once again made you worry! Bull-head, I’m coming back right now!”

After exhaling a breath, Lei Yu then smiled. “What are your names?”

“I’m called Little Ha!” The slightly smaller toad was the first to speak up.

The larger toad gave the smaller toad a supercilious look before smiling at Lei Yu, “I’m called Big Ha.”

“The names of you two are really unique but very easy to remember. Come with me to the city to meet the Demon King.” In front of outsiders, Lei Yu would never say bull-head. Even though Minotaur Linos didn’t mind, Lei Yu still had to be mindful because after all, he was the Demon King of this generation respected by tens of thousands.

Lei Yu’s words and tone of voice were simple and bland, but those words to Little and Big Ha was like a gift from heaven! They were just here sunbathing and happened to encounter Lei Yu, so wasn’t this even luckier than winning the lottery?

All demonic cultivators new the benefits of entering the city. Not only was it a safe place to reside in, there was even a chance to become a guard of the Demon King. As long as one becomes a guard, their future is practically set to be bright and glorious. Even if their strength was at the Gold Core stage, they will still gain the respect of all demon cultivators that weren’t able to become guards. This was a symbol of status that only demonic cultivators that had made some positive contribution were qualified to have.

“Thank you Lord Lightning!” A bright light surrounded the two and immediately two middle-aged men appeared in front of Lei Yu and company. The looks of those two toads in human form wasn’t something one would praise.

They were both obese with jiggly meat on their face that would bounce with every little movement they made. The most exaggerated part was the size of their body was the same thickness from top to bottom. If one was forced to say what was most eye-catching about those two, it would have to be their green eyes. Although the green had become fainter after transforming into humans, one could still see that characteristic clearly. The other eye-catching part was their chest that was no different from the two huge mounds of a woman. Except those two mounds weren’t firm but drooped downwards.

“Uh……………………… let’s go!”

Lei Yu pulled Ai Er’s hand. Ai Er leapt on top of her sword before the two flew off while Nuo Hu followed behind. The two toads glanced at each other with visible happiness on their fat faces before they tried to catch up while panting with effort.

As they gradually got closer to the city, Lei Yu looked very calm. He wasn’t like last time filled with anticipation but was filled with warmth. Lei Yu felt like he had returned home.

“You guys look! Isn’t that Lord Lightning?” The demonic cultivators cried out in shock inside the city. Some even flew up to take a closer look before flying off quickly towards the castle. What were they doing? Of course it was to report this good news to Telephassa and the bull-head in hopes of gaining some reward.

“Where did you go these five years? Did you know that Her Majesty and I almost went crazy?! If you still didn’t appear soon, most likely I would have flipped the entire Immortal World upside down!” The ear-deafening voice came from the castle causing nearly everyone to cover their ears, including Ai Er and Nuo Hu. It was only Lei Yu who had tears in his eyes as he inwardly sobbed a couple of times, “I’m sorry! I caused you all to worry!”

========

Chapter 324 – Rewards From The Demon King

Lei Yu’s voice wasn’t loud and didn’t have the bull-head’s earth shaking effect, but everyone heard it clearly.

A golden beam of light and a red beam of light both shot out from the castle. After that, two beams of yellow light and a several different colored lights also shot out flying towards Lei Yu.

The calmest people in this scene were Ai Er and Nuo Hu because they didn’t know what the Demon King and the Majesty Queen represented. On the other hand, Little Ha and Big Ha were trembling non-stop, and almost looked like they were going to start crying. “Elder… elder brother, it’s really… really our Demon King! It’s really Lord Demon King!”

“That’s right! There’s also… also Her Majesty the Queen! Quickly look, she’s like a goddess! A goddess that has descended before our mortal eyes!” No one bothered with the words of the two toads.

The scene seemed to have frozen as bull-head’s gaze landed on Telephassa. The latter was staring at Lei Yu while her sweet lips slightly moved as if she wanted to say something, but then swallowed it back down. She noticed that Lei Yu’s hand was holding onto a beautiful girl by his side.

Ai Er and Telephassa cannot be compared on the same level. Previously, Ai Er was a lively and kind-hearted girl. Even though there was a big change to her these past few years, ever since she had recovered her senses, those two types of personality fused into one and caused her charm to be even on a higher level.

As for Telephassa, her beauty oozed out from deep within her bones. She originally had a prestigious position which gave her a remarkable temperament and gorgeous aura. She made people want to touch her yet be discouraged to tarnish her image. But the kind temperament she showed Lei Yu made him unable to forget, especially when he wasn’t able to fully express his intentions towards her.

One couldn’t simply compare the looks of the two women because their beauty was on the level of making people suffocate. If one was to forced to give an opinion on what was different between them, there would only be two things: The first was feeling – those two gave people a different realm of beauty that caused all men to be entranced by. The second was their choice of clothing – Ai Er wore a long white gown made of silk which gave her an air of refinement; while Telephassa was in sexy attire that revealed many areas of her white skin causing men to unconsciously salivate.

This strange frozen scene went on for almost two minutes until Romon who was standing behind the two emperors was the first to speak. “Nuo Hu! Ai Er! We haven’t seen each other in a long time!”

“Oh, it’s Romon! You’re here too!” Ai Er’s voice was like a wind chime. Adding the light laughter in tone, people hearing her voice felt like they were listening to the sound of nature.

Telephassa felt strange because in her entire life, this was the first time she felt like she wasn’t the most beautiful woman in the world.

“Brother! It has truly been a long time since we’ve met!” Nuo Hu grinned as he too intended to break this weird atmosphere. The shield beneath his feet started moving towards Romon. Romon directly jumped off his copper pillar onto Nuo Hu’s weapon and the two hugged each other.

“Uh… how about… how about we first go back before we continue chatting?” The bull-head embarrassedly said as his eyes kept darting back and forth between the Queen and Lei Yu.

Lei Yu smiled, “Sounds good! There are many things I want to talk about with everyone!” Right after that, his glanced landed on Telephassa once again and lightly nodded.

There wasn’t any need to ask because the meaning of this simple nod was very obvious. Telephassa’s heart start beating madly as if it was about to burst out of her chest. On her long exposed neck, one could clearly see that she had swallowed hard a few times.

The crowd started flying towards the castle, leaving thousands upon thousands of demonic cultivators with wide eyes and mouths agape. Some even had snot dripping down to their mouth without realizing it.

It was necessary to prepare residences for the three of them because Ai Er was now present among them.

The crowd landed and went inside the main hall, and Lei Yu was the first to break the silence. “How come I don’t see that girl Mo Bei Li?” After looking around, there truly were no signs of that little yaksha that loves to mess around.

Hearing Mo Bei Li’s name being mentioned, the bull-head showed a pleased expression on his face. “After that situation with you back then, that child has really matured a lot. Being envious upon seeing the rapid improvements by Romon and you, and being aware of her own deficiencies, she actually requested on her own to enter the Devil King’s Castle to cultivate. She still hasn’t come out yet.”

Lei Yu nodded in a pleased manner, “It’s good that she wants to improve. Being her father, you will have to support her more often.”

“That’s of course.” The bull-head nodded.

After those several dialogues, no one else spoke anymore and everyone was just staring at each other. No further topic could be brought up, and even Lei Yu who originally said he had a lot of things to talk about didn’t know where to start from.

Telephassa was still overjoyed at this point but couldn’t reveal it on her face. Her eyes unconsciously met with Ai Er’s, and they both could only smile and nod at each other. The smiles contained forgiveness and gratitude mixed in it.

“Oh right, I thought of something!” Lei Yu slapped his head, not wanting others to say he doesn’t keep his words. He had promised Little Ha and Big Ha to bring them to meet the Demon King, so he couldn’t go back on his words right?

“What is it?” Asked the bull-head.

“When I arrived at the outermost periphery of the Southern Wild Lands, I encountered two people that have a pretty good relationship with me. It was those two fatties that were following behind us.”

“Little Yu, what are you trying to say…?” Asked the bull-head.

“There’s no hidden meaning behind my words.” Lei Yu shook his head. He didn’t want the bull-head to open any backdoors for those two because of him. He then smiled, “Didn’t you issue a decree that whoever finds me will get some preferential treatment?”

“That’s right!” The bull-head nodded, “Someone come here! Go and bring those two brothers called Little Ha and Big Ha to the main hall!”

“Understood!” The two guards did not appear as their voices were heard from the outside.

Above the city, the two fatties were staring at each other while floating in the air. After a while, Little Ha said: “Elder brother, it looks like we’ve been played with!”

“Stop spouting bullshit! You dare to say something bad about Lord Lightning in this place? You simply don’t want to keep living!” Big Ha lectured loudly.

Pouting his fat lips, Little Ha was unhappy, “I didn’t say anything wrong, isn’t this the case?”

“Okay, that’s enough. Let’s go, we’re going back to our territory!” Giving one last look at the castle, those two were disappointed but didn’t dare say it out loud.

“Are you two brothers Little Ha and Big Ha?”

Asked a burly guy in armor who had suddenly blocked the path of those two.

“What is it?” Big Ha asked.

“The fortune of you two aren’t bad, the Demon King has summoned you two.” The burly guy smiled.

The two fatties cried out in shock, “Really?! Is it really true?!” Seeing the burly guy nod in acknowledgement, those two became ecstatic.

“You see? You see? I just said it that Lord Lightning was loyal and wouldn’t forget about us!”

Big Ha gave Little Ha a despising glance, “Be careful since I might just tell him what you had just said prior!”

“…”
