Chapter 541: A’dai Awakens
“Isn’t it just a monkey? I’m really good at dealing with monkeys,” A’ze said with a face brimming with confidence.
“It’s no ordinary monkey. It’s…” Yun Jiuge was abruptly cut off by a shriek.
She turned in the direction where the shriek had come from and noticed three Monkey Demon Yin Corpses at the south-west area of the Yun City. They had just ripped several big and strong human-bear hybrids into halves.
The human-bear hybrids’ blood splattered everywhere and caused the other human-beast hybrids near them to shriek in fear.
Eyeball, who has been floating in the air haughtily all this time, immediately hid inside Little Grass’ pocket the moment it saw the Monkey Demon Yin Corpses.
“Bad monkey! I’ll beat you up!” Little Grass charged towards the Monkey Demon Yin Corpses with its short legs.
“Be careful! Don’t get close to it!” Yun Jiuge rushed over and bound the Monkey Demon Yin Corpses with her Moon Spirit Silk Thread in a hurry.
Little Grass might only be as tall as the Monkey Demon Yin Corpse’s knee, but that did not daunt it in the slightest. It stepped on the latter’s knee bravely and leapt onto the top of its head before proceeding to suck it dry.
“Go for it, Little Grass!” Cute Little Baby yelled emotionally in Yun Jiuge’s subconscious mind.
“How did Little Grass become this powerful?” Yun Jiuge stared at Little Grass in shock as it jumped from one Monkey Demon Yin Corpse to the next like a nimble rabbit. Before long, all the Monkey Demon Yin Corpses had been sucked dry by Little Grass.
“Heh heh! I found some of the Soul Eating Demonic Flower’s essences when I helped you to plant seeds some time back, and I fed them all to Little Grass,” Cute Little Baby said proudly.
“Soul Eating Demonic Flower? What is that?” Yun Jiuge had never heard of such a thing before.
“It’s a heavenly demonic being. One would be able to possess the ability to forcefully seize another’s demonic soul after consuming its essence. It’s very suitable for someone like Little Grass,” Cute Little Baby replied.
“It really is.” Yun Jiuge felt immensely impressed as she watched Little Grass kill all three Monkey Demon Yin Corpses without battling an eyelid.
“Master, I’ve killed them all.” Little Grass hopped its way over to Yun Jiuge before it raised its head and looked at Yun Jiuge expectantly, as though it was waiting for her to praise it.
“Well done!” Yun Jiuge caressed its head.
“Master Little Grass is so powerful.” Eyeball, who had hid in Little Grass’ pocket earlier, finally came out of hiding once the Monkey Demon Yin Corpses were gone. It flew around Little Grass excitedly and showered it with praises.
“What an apple-polisher.” Yun Jiuge flicked Eyeball crossly and asked, “Aren’t you a demonic being? Why are you afraid of the Monkey Demon Yin Corpses?”
“Those were not your average Monkey Demon Yin Corpses. They have been given demonic souls,” Eyeball said forcefully, “Qiu Sen is very good at creating those things. He still has one super big and powerful Monkey Demon Yin Corpse at his disposal. Its powers are equivalent to that of a cultivator in the Nascent Soul stage.”
“He actually has a Monkey Demon Yin Corpse that is as strong as a cultivator in the Nascent Soul stage?” Yun Jiuge’s heart skipped a beat upon hearing those words. She suddenly had a very bad feeling about what was going to happen next.
“This is bad! He’s coming! He’s coming!” Eyeball shrieked and prepared to go into hiding again.
“Who’s coming?” Yun Jiuge hastily grabbed Eyeball before it could fly away.
“It’s Qiu Sen! He has brought the super powerful Monkey Demon Yin Corpse with him! You must never let him know of my existence! Otherwise, I’ll definitely be killed by him!” Eyeball broke free from Yun Jiuge’s grasp and hid inside Little Grass’ pocket in fear.
Yun Jiuge stood on the highest point of the city wall and gazed into the distance. It did not take long before she saw a 30-foot tall Monkey Demon Yin Corpse racing towards the Yun City.
The Monkey Demon Yin Corpse wore a black armor and its facial features were contorted. It charged towards the city wall like a mad bull and crashed against it heavily.
The impact resulted in a loud boom.
The entire city wall shook thrice, and the grayish-white Yin Yang Qi barrier that surrounded the city wall seemed to have weakened significantly after the crash.
“The city wall would definitely collapse if it crashed against it one more time.” Yin Shili’s hysterical voice rang out.
A’ze immediately flew towards the Black Armored Monkey Demon with Meng on its body. The other human-beast hybrids also began unleashing all sorts of attacks on it at the same time. Some fired arrows while others cast illusion on it.
Before their attacks could reach it however, the Black Armored Monkey Demon opened its mouth wide and led out a furious roar. Thereafter, countless invisible sound waves began rippling through the air. The sound waves not only deflected all the arrows away, they even caused the human-eagle hybrids in the air to suffer internal injuries.
A’ze tried his best to stay afloat after being hit by the sound waves, but he was not able to stop his body from swaying violently, and he eventually collapsed to the ground alongside Meng.
“Bad monkey!” Little Grass led out an indignant shout and was getting ready to pounce at the Black Armored Monkey Demon.
“Go back. This is not something that you can deal with.” Yun Jiuge tossed Little Grass back into the Magic Cauldron before she used the Moon Spirit Silk Thread to bind the Black Armored Monkey Demon. She then used the grayish-white thread to stab into the Monkey Demon’s body by drawing on the thread’s Devouring Power.
To Yun Jiuge’s surprise, the Black Armored Monkey Demon’s body was as hard as a rock, and the Moon Spirit Silk Thread was not able to stab into its body at all.
Yun Jiuge was about to increase her Holy Power output when a blinding black light burst from the Black Armored Monkey Demon’s body and sent the Moon Spirit Silk Thread flying.
Yun Jiuge instantly felt as though someone had slammed a hammer against her chest, and she fell off the city wall weakly.
The Black Armored Monkey Demon immediately reached its furry hand out in an attempt to grab her.
Yun Jiuge shot out the Moon Spirit Silk Thread towards the city wall to stop her fall, and she successfully avoided the Black Armored Monkey Demon’s attack.
She then used the last of her Holy Power to summon her Spiritual Eye, and she was finally able to determine the exact location of the Black Armored Monkey Demon’s Demonic Core. It was located at its forehead.
However, given the small amount of Holy Power that she possessed at the moment, she would definitely not be able to fly over and destroy the Demonic Core by herself. She needed someone else to help her.
Yun Jiuge surveyed her surroundings at once, but all she saw were injured human-beast hybrids all over the place. The human-eagle hybrids were still groggy after being hit by the sound waves earlier, and they were wobbling about as they flew.
Right as Yun Jiuge felt despair, her Spiritual Beast Bag began to shake, and a burly figure flew out from within.
“Cawww!” I’m so hungry!
A’dai flapped its wings and wanted to go on a search for food. However, it quickly realized that the situation before him was odd.
There was a grayish-white castle in front of it, and there were numerous beasts that looked like humans on the inside. It could also see many black eagles just like it as well. What was going on?
“A’dai! Dodge!” Yun Jiuge warned at the top of her voice.
It was only then that A’dai noticed an extremely huge black gorilla reaching its hand out towards it in an attempt to grab it.
A golden light enveloped A’dai’s body at once, and it avoided the Black Armored Monkey Demon’s attack in the blink of an eye. A moment later, A’dai appeared next to Yun Jiuge and went, “Cawww! Hungry! Hungry!”
“I’ll let you eat all the Cherry Pills you want if you can peck a hole on that monkey’s forehead!” Yun Jiuge took out a bottle of Cherry Pills and shook it before A’dai’s face.
“Caw!” A’dai widened its beady eyes and charged towards the Black Armored Monkey Demon at once.
The Black Armored Monkey Demon attempted to swat A’dai with its hands, but A’dai was always able to avoid its attacks adeptly.
Soon, A’dai found an opening and immediately pecked at the Black Armored Monkey Demon’s forehead. However, it led out a cry of pain after its first try.
“A’dai, if you can peck a hole on its forehead within 30 minutes, I’ll feed you a bottle of Celestial Spiritual Dew as well.” Yun Jiuge decided to give A’dai more rewards to spur him on.
“Caw!” A’dai’s eyes glinted with excitement before it began pecking at the Black Armored Monkey Demon’s forehead relentlessly like a woodpecker.
The Black Armored Monkey Demon led out a series of furious roars, but sadly, A’dai was immune to its sound waves and was not hurt by it in any way.
“Caw!” A’dai was able to peck a hole on Black Armored Monkey Demon’s forehead within 30 minutes.
“Little Grass, go!” Yun Jiuge released Little Grass from the Magic Cauldron and tossed it at the Black Armored Monkey Demon.
Little Grass’ chubby body rolled in the air for a while before it landed on the Black Armored Monkey Demon’s head safely.
Thereafter, it reached out and placed its hands over the Black-Armored Monkey Demon’s forehead. In the next moment, a vast amount of black light was sucked out from within.
The Black Armored Monkey Demon led out a cry of immense anguish, but it was not able to escape its fate of being killed by Little Grass.
“Good job!” Yun Jiuge had only just heaved a sigh of relief when a black gust of wind blew past her. Little Grass disappeared from where it stood in an instant and re-emerged at a spot that was far away from her soon after.
“It’s been a long time, Yun Jiuge.” Qiu Sen grabbed Little Grass by its collar and flashed a sinister smile at her.
