Demon King/The Parting of the Orchid and Cang partingChapter 7
Little Orchid feel that her mind is still a little confused, but she was able to feel that Dong Fang Qing Cang has stood up, and stepped to go to the door. But after taking two steps, feeling fluttering, excitement poured out and finally found the body of Dong Fang Qing Cang that instantly transformed into gray smoke. He leaned on the table to stand, and patiently said, "Do not let ben zuo left foot to be like a fake foot! Move for me!"
Little Orchid nodded in response to his roar. Dong Fang Qing Cang let go of the table, stepped wide and walked quickly in the room, "Lift the leg, step wide." As if dragging Little Orchid along, he seems to be at odds with himself, forced Little Orchid to keep up with his footsteps.
“Lift hand, have you not walk before… Cannot let ben zuo move both hands and legs!”
Little Orchid felt her soul kept on falling against Dong Fang Qing Cang's body, is yelled by him to the point of confusion. She really does not know which direction anymore. But within this state of chaos, continue to walked alongside Dong Fang Qing Cang in the room, Little Orchid has miraculously walked the same pace as Dong Fang Qing Cang. Perhaps this body has some memory, not for long, after walking she felt more and more natural.
“What is the devil doing in the room? Seems to be rummaging for something.”
“Seems like walking around the room …”
“… Are you sure we are looking after the real mo zun? The ancient devil? Not a ghost with a crazy mind pretending to be one right?"
The outside discussion reached the ears. Little Orchid suddenly felt quite sorry towards the big devil, to be criticized in such manner … Dong Fang Qing Cang's face held no expression, but he lifted his right hand and adjusted his clothes. A wind like a dragon arose from ground, rushed out of the room, broke the two doors, pushed the two ghost guards to fall to the ground, and screeched into the endless darkness of Diyu/underworld.
Dong Fang Qing Cang stepped out from the door, and Little Orchid almost subconsciously kept up with his pace.
Dong Fang Qing Cang took a deep breath, gently sighed, as if a many years old disease was cured, mood was relaxed— finally can walk.
He looked straight ahead, stepped past the two ghost guards, Xiao Gui (Little "Demon") behind him begged, "Da ren, you cannot leave the underworld, ah…"
Little Orchid wanted to turned around and look at him, explain why she is going to the mortal realm, but Dong Fang Qing Cang seems to not have heard such words, and continued to look forward [not glance sideways; idiom], but his mouth still said, "Turn your left eye back."
Seeing two eyes at different places will probably scare a lot of the ghost/spirit messengers of the underworld, and so Little Orchid withdrew the eye.
Dong Fang Qing Cang went straight to the bridge of Helplessness, along the way more and more ghost/spirit messengers would hear the news and chase after. When reaching the Sansheng stone, even the God of Death came to block, "Da ren, Mo Zun da ren, where are you going ah, do you not want to stay a bit longer at Diyu/underworld? I even prepared a terrific distinct underworld ghost dance for you sir…"
“You can watch by yourself then.” Dong Fang Qing Cang used his hand to push away the God of Death, and walked across the bridge of Helplessness.
The shadow of a ghost flashed by, Black and White Impermanence stood in front.
Dong Fang Qing Cang smiled, “Want to go at it? Good ah.”
Black and White Impermanence was not aware when Dong Fang Qing Cang's right hand lifted and suddenly a burst of wind ripped the silent atmosphere of the underworld, cutting up a deep wound in the bottomless trace. But the position is far behind Black and White Impermanence…
Because within the matter of life and death in which the magic was casted, the left hand of his pushed away his right hand. It's obviously that he blocked himself, but this time in the eyes of Black and White Impermanence, the big devil's face was ultimately livid, as if upset that he could not cut someone into million of pieces.
“Well, if you guys do not let me past, I will knife by knife cut up the ground of Diyu like lumps of tofu!" Mo Zun suddenly used a jumpy intonation with a bit of shyness to say, "Move out for me!"
Perhaps an illusion, after finishing this sentence, appearing across the face of Mo Zun appears was a shameful and despotic look.
His right hand that was stuck in the air was trembling a bit.
Everyone in the underworld was shocked because of the lethality from the hand that was lifted but also from the tone of the sentence… originally, the ancient devil can also use this kind of tone?
Dong Fang Qing Cang withdrew his hand, and almost as fast as lightning, fled into the reincarnation well.
The light in the reincarnation well shifted, and Little Orchid spoke, "Big devil, do not make such a tight face. Well, I know interfering in your anger is not right, but do not need to kill people every time to stand up [against people]! You see just now, cutting the ground is enough to scare them to the point of not moving ah. Also, I did think of a way to save you face ah."
Dong Fang Qing Cang does not want to deal with the soul in his body anymore.
The white light glared, within a moment, the surrounding scene changed instantly. The atmosphere around the nose immediately became a lot heavier, and Little Orchid knew, [they] has come to the mortal realm. But…
Strange, why is the atmosphere/energy of the mortal realm so turbid? The wind is even bigger …
“Zun shang! Zun shang!”
That old man who called himself the Swift Messenger is still squatting outside, and when seeing her figure that stepped out, was overjoyed to the point of crying and the old face was filled with flowing tears and mucus.
Turned out has returned to Ye City, the junction between the Three Realms.
“Zun shang you have finally come out! Xiao ren was able to wait for you! Come, mustn't stay here for long, let’s quickly go."
Little Orchid felt strange. She remembered that when she came here, despite the many demons and monsters, the air was not as muddy and unpleasant as now. Such air is no different from the underworld, such air appearing in the mortal realm is not good…
Little Orchid turned around, and suddenly stared [with wide eyes].
This … how did it happened, she remembered when she went to the underworld she only tore a small hole ah, now the small hole has eroded the whole wall and has become twice her height.
The black crack along the wall climbed up to the roof, as if wanting to tear apart the air outside. Evil and hostile qi (energy) are constantly flowing outward from the hole, the grievances and evil of Ye also kept on swirling outside from the hole.
Staying like this, not for long, the atmosphere will aggregate and transform itself into a huge monster. Then the people of Ye city will suffer.
“En, did a good job.” Dong Fang Qing Cang looked at the crack, and laughed in satisfaction, "I did not expect you to remember ben zuo formation/spell, and break the Three Realm seal."
Little Orchid was so scared to the point of crying, “This this this … this hole has torn, how to close it back ah?"
Dong Fang Qing Cang laughed, “Did you think the Three Realm seal is made out of meat? That one can cut it off then it will heal?"
Little Orchid heard this and the heart panicked, “It's over now. What to do. If master knew I punctured this hole, master will definitely feed me to the pigs!"
“Then let your master quickly find you and feed you to the pigs.” Dong Fang Qing Cang very coldly said. He was about to turn around to go, but his left foot stood in one place and did not move.
Little Orchid accused, "How can you pretend as it was nothing! The gap is getting bigger, and the chaotic energy will aggregate into a monster here. Then someone will be wounded or even dead."
“How does that relate to ben zuo?”
“How is it not relatable, at that time I was looking for you and this disaster occurred!"
“Zun shang? What is zun shang saying?” The old white beard man outside did not dare enter the yard and only used a loud voice to shout, "The wind is too big, xiao ren cannot hear what you are saying ah! Please come out soon. For the past few days the energy of the hole has been affecting, Ye City's people are restless, more and more chaos. We cannot stay here for long, the people of the heavenly realm will find out.
Little Orchid heard this, and refused to go, “People have been affected, we must hurry and sew this, if not something big will happen!"
Dong Fang Qing Cang was irritated, his face cold, "Ben zuo has never been worshiped by world/mortals, why help them be at peace? Not to mention now it's only a hole in Three Realm seal, even if today ben zuo destroyed Three Realm seal, will not be feeling guilty one bit."
He laughed coldly,” Speaking for you to understand, in the past, ben zuo is only responsible for "trouble", cleaning up is the heaven realm matter. To ben zuo, overturning the three realms, and people suffering is merely a game."
The words "overturning the three realms, people suffer" are too big, Little Orchid's mind cannot find any other disaster that she has caused compare to such eight words [think of it as eight words but I only use six]. But because there was no conceptual thought, Little Orchid felt that Dong Fang Qing Cang was only using it to exaggerate his ruthless, cold-bloodedness. She immediately pouted, quivering and wanting to cry, "To speak frankly, you don't want to help solve that disaster for me.*.." *Actual phrase used: " You don't want to "wipe butt" for me."
Hearing such explanation, Dong Fang Qing Cang restrained with a lot of effort of not wanting to pat his forehead. [T/N: He's trying his best not to facepalm :> ]
“Look, considered we are the same person and help me.” Little Orchid softly pleaded, “I will comply to whatever you want after, help me patch back this hole first…”
Dong Fang Qing Cang heard this, the tip of his right brow moved, “Comply with anything ah?”
Little Orchid nodded as if pounding garlic*. *As if guilty
Dong Fang Qing Cang took his right hand to pinch his chin, tacitly tolerating, “First thing, when there is someone, I will not let you speak, then you mustn't speak."
Little Orchid answered, “Okay.”
“Second, no matter what time, do not interrupt me on doing anything, an example is before, preventing me from killing."
No matter anyway, will think about it when the next encounter in that kind of situation happens, let's first agreed. Little Orchid responded, “Okay.
“Finally…” Dong Fang Qing Cang paused, and then with a slight smile said, "You plead me, I will help you."
Little Orchid heard master said in this world there is a personal with an abusive personality. Before she felt that the world was all sunshine and lovely, how can such a person exist? Until today, she heard Dong Fang Qing Cang said such sentence. She obviously felt that the hobby of Dong Fang Qing Cang is to bully people.
“Okay … okay ah." Little Orchid could not help wanting to bite her teeth, but in the end unwillingly squeeze out three words, "I beg you."
Thus, Dong Fang Qing Cang laughed, “Ben zuo will meet your need.”
His right hand accumulate golden light, his sleeves waved up, golden light like fluttering butterflies, one by one flew to the deepest black qi, blocking the turbid qi from the inside, and also preventing the qi from outside entering.
Until the golden light covered the black hole, Dong Fang Qing Cang closed the sleeves and the strong wind appeared, raising his robes and long hair. Within the blink of an eye, the wall in front recovered and intact as before. Even the dilapidated house was clean properly, not a single demon and monster left.
The strength is so strong, killing or saving can all be done in one thought.
Little Orchid was still dazed when Dong Fang Qing Cang stepped out of the house.
“Go … go where?” Little Orchid quickly moved the left leg to keep up with him.
“Jiu You*.” [*T/N: the barren land that the demon tribe currently resides]
Did not bother to glance at the old white beard man hiding outside the courtyard, Dong Fang Qing Cang flapped his sleeves and left straight to the sky, leaving the Swift Messenger sitting on the floor stunned.
He did not see wrong, the devil… patched up the Three Realms seal? Mo Zun is actually concerned about the sufferings of people? This… this is Mo Zun and not some ancient god?
