Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1965
The True Attraction
Tan Jinye showed a prideful look. He inwardly grinned the instant he saw the look on Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s face. He was feeling utterly flattered.
“I’m Lan Xian, I have brought a bottle of Heaven and Earth Profound Yellow Water under the orders of our Sovereign Lord for Demon Sovereign.”
Lan Xian stood up, holding a jade bottle in his hand. It was a translucent bottle the size of a palm. The liquid inside was extremely precious.
Heaven and Earth Profound Yellow Water was also the root water of the Heavens and Earth. One drop of it weighed 20 000 kilograms. This treasure wasn’t for consumption. It’s used for Immortal Weapon crafting. If it was added to the production of a Sovereign Weapon, the weapon’s grade would be raised by one.
Furthermore, Heaven and Earth Profound Yellow Water could also be used in pill concoction. By adding a little of its essence during the refinement, it would tremendously improve the grade of the pill.
The fact that Lan Xian was giving away such a precious treasure indicated how important his Sovereign Lord regarded Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign. As this would affect the reputation of the Sovereign Lord, the Sovereign Lord couldn’t afford to present an inferior gift.
“Alright. Thank Ethereal Sovereign Lord for such a valuable gift. It will be disrespectful to decline it. Please sit down Junior Lan Xian.” Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign was beaming with delight as he stowed away the bottle of the rare liquid.
There was no reason for him to be unhappy. Anyone would feel the same when he received such precious treasures. Although the Heaven and Earth Profound Yellow Water didn’t have much of a use to him, it could benefit the thousands of disciples on the island. When better weapons were made, stronger experts would be produced, and the influence of Demonic Immortal Island would grow stronger.
Next, the representatives of the various Immortal Courts began to present their gifts desperately. Each of them was the representative of their young generation. As expected, the treasures presented were just as valuable and precious as the previous two. The onlookers couldn’t help feeling envious.
One should know that each of these treasures could cause a fight to break out amongst the experts. It was incomparably difficult to see these legendary treasures under ordinary circumstances.
This also showed how influential Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign was. It was afraid that there was only Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign who possessed such majesty in the Immortal World, not even the nine great Sovereign Lords would be treated as respectfully.
The main reason behind it was that every Immortal Court had been wanting to build a close connection with him.
“Truly amazing! All the gifts they gave are no doubt precious! I feel embarrassed to present my gift if I compare it to theirs.”
“Don’t say that. After all, we are merely from a small sect. Even if we have such treasures, we won’t be willing to give it out. In any case, it is good enough as long as we have a sincere intention. Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign also understands that it would be impossible for us to present such valuable gifts.”
“That’s right. If they are comparing us to the nine great Immortal Courts, we shouldn’t be attending the ceremony today. There’s still the Fengchi Immortal Court that hasn’t presented their gift. I wonder what they have prepared.”
“Needless to say, it has to be something precious.”
The gifts presented by the various Immortal Courts gave the others, especially the rogue cultivators, lots of pressure. They could imagine that their gifts would only be a laughing stock when compared to these legendary items. Psychologically, it was a huge blow to them.
“Yu Huafan, what have you all prepared? What’s the matter? Are you feeling sorry to present it after seeing the gifts we presented?”
Lan Xian sneered resentfully. It was imaginable how indignant he felt right now after seven of his people were killed by Jiang Chen and his comrades.
Unfortunately, he was sitting opposite of them, which made it unavoidable not to see them whenever he lifted his head. Every time he saw them, his emotion was stirred, his teeth clenched.
“That’s right. Could it be that the dignified Fengchi Immortal Court is too ashamed to show the gift they prepared?”
“In my opinion, if you really are too ashamed to display it, don’t take it out to avoid embarrassing yourself even more.”
Tan Jinye and the other geniuses spoke sarcastically, their tone clearly showed a hint of hostility.
Junior Brother Jiang, I’ll let you present it.
Yu Huafan secretly passed the Vermillion Bird Divine Blood to Jiang Chen, wearing a sneer on his face. He was crystal clear that all the previous gifts were inferior to theirs. At least, he knew that the divine blood of the Vermillion Bird would surely attract Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s interest the most.
Jiang Chen nodded. He knew Yu Huafan’s intention – he was giving Jiang Chen the opportunity to meet Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign. After all, Jiang Chen had too many enemies. All the experts of the three Immortal Courts were determined to kill him. If he could attract the attention of Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign or even obtain the Demon Sovereign’s recognition, it would surely be favorable to him.
He stood up from his seat, clasped his fists and took out the crystal ball.
“I’m Jiang Chen from the Dragon Hall of Fengchi Immortal Court. Greetings, Demon Sovereign. Fengchi Immortal Court has specially prepared a drop of Vermillion Bird Divine Blood for Demon Sovereign,” said Jiang Chen aloud.
The word “Vermillion Bird Divine Blood” resounded around clearly, which agitated everyone. The smile on Lan Xian and Tan Jinye’s face froze and vanished.
They were all knowledgeable individuals. They naturally knew what the divine blood of Vermillion Bird was.
“Goodness! Can’t believe that’s the Vermillion Bird Divine Blood. Vermillion Bird is a divine bird, one of the five elemental divine beasts. Its bloodline is even nobler than the heavenly *peng. It’s nobility is on par with the ancient true dragon. That’s extremely generous of Fengchi Immortal Court.”
“Yeah. It’s true that all the previous gifts were incomparably precious, but the value of Vermillion Bird Divine Blood is the greatest. Everyone knows that it contains the true bloodline of the Vermillion Bird. If Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign is able to integrate it with his Heavenly Peng Bloodline, it will be boundlessly beneficial to him.”
“Awesome! Do you all see Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s expression? Obviously, the appearance of the divine blood has completely entranced him. I’m sure that the allure of this divine blood is greater than all the previous items.”
Peng - An unfathomably gigantic bird which transforms from a fish. Just by spreading its wings, it can shroud the heavens. And with a single flap, it can travel vast distances.
