Hidden in the mountain, there was a gorgeous palace where the powerful demon beast, named Shuten, lived.
The name, Shuten-douji horrified the people in nearby towns with its intimidating strength and ferocity.
Legend had it that Shuten-douji liked to feast on flesh and blood of living humans, especially flesh and blood of the young and innocent virgin women.
The surrounding area was filled with panic, but many powerful samurai, monks, and even mysterious onmyouji came for it. In the end, it was a one-way trip as they became Shuten-douji’s food.
A hundred miles in a radius were all shrouded in the shadow of this strong greater demon beast, but its reign seemed to stop there.
The greater demon beast, who was feared by the commoners and even the samurais, showed a painful look at this time. Shuten-douji liked to turn into a beautiful man to seduce young girls. At this time, the beautiful face of the demon beast was distorted.
Shuten-douji grabbed his neck in pain, but his body was lifted by something.
The hand of a human samurai!
In addition to the pain, Shuten-douji’s eyes were filled with surprise. It could not believe that a human samurai possessed such a mighty force. When it unintentionally saw the shadow of the human warrior stretched by the candlelight and projected on the wall, he caught a glimmer of understanding in its heart.
On the wall, a vast black shadow was swinging wantonly – a monster with eight giant heads!
“Orochi…” Shuten-douji did not forget the taboo name in the Yan Wuyue world, even the demon beast would be terrified.
At this time, a large amount of blood splashed on the wall, which signified that evil Shuten-douji’s life had ended. The dark shadow with eight heads on the wall was frantically dancing…
When everything returned to calm again, the human samurai sat on the ground casually, smacked his lips, and the purple light of his pupils flashed, “Shuten-douji is not bad. At least it has restored me a little bit of strength. Now, come to think of it, the Zhan Lu Sword user seems to have ignored me.”
Samurai… Orochi raised his brows and pondered the course of the battle. When Orochi just broke out from its seal, its power was at its lowest point. Even its consciousness was not fully awake, yet it could sense the glaring power of Zhan Lu’s emperor’s way. It recalled a disaster in the Divine Land Xiangliu clan. Orochi fled in a hurry.
But now, with a clearer consciousness, it thought the Zhan Lu Sword’s power was not bad, but it was far less potent than when it almost forced the Xiangliu clan to despair. However, Orochi did not know why Zhan Lu Sword changed hands. Worse still, it came to this remote fragmented world and cut off ties with the Divine Land.
Perhaps, the event was inseparable from the danger hidden in this fragmented world. It used to have authority in this Yan Wuyue world.
When Orochi entered this fragmented world by coincidence, it directly robbed half of Yan Wuyue’s world from Izanagi and Izanami’s hands dwelled in the Pillar of Heaven. It became a catastrophe capable of destroying the entire Yan Wuyue world. It was then titled the Snake of Destruction.
Nevertheless, Izanagi and Izanami on Yahiro-dono could do nothing about Orochi. If such a fight continued, the fragmented world that could evolve into a stand-alone world would eventually be wiped out. Neither side could get any benefit. Hence, both sides also reached a tacit understanding of non-aggression.
However, Orochi, who broke the seal and returned, had to admit that it was too arrogant and overestimated himself. Otherwise, Susanoo, one of the Three Deities, would not have succeeded, rendering it sealed in a ten-span sword!
“Damn it, even if Susanoo has a ten-span sword. I can easily kill him! If it weren’t for Izanagi and Izanami, who secretly used the world’s omnipotence to restrict me, how could they succeed!”
Whenever Orochi thought of the moment of being sealed off, it had unspeakable regret and hatred!
Initially, it was the supreme who possessed half of the Yan Wuyue world’s power and was at ease. Due to its alcohol-liking, it was sealed for too many years with its authority taken away.
“However, with this comeback, the power of the world has been divided again…”
As the supreme who had half the world’s power previously, Orochi was still sensitive despite having its authority taken away. That half of the authority robbed from Orochi was already refined in its body once. Hence, Orochi still had a tingling sense of connection to it.
“It seems that Yan Wuyue has ushered in an intruder like me after all.” Orochi sat in the palace that initially belonged to the Shuten-douji and sneered, “You two should go at each other’s throats so that I can sit back and enjoy the benefits.”
But the first thing it needed to do was to restore more strength as soon as possible.
“Nearby is the entrance of Nightland…” Orochi pondered for a while, “Tsukuyomi is one of the Three Deities, which shares part of the world’s power. It’s a spilt from my world’s power taken away in the past.”
At this time, the spiritual qi at Nightland’s entrance was surging, expanding frantically. Such a considerable commotion naturally could not hide from Orochi’s senses.
It narrowed its eyes and said, “It seems that my chance is here… Divine Land, I will come back again! After I have mastered the world fragments and form a world with me as the ruler, I have nothing to be afraid of!”
According to legend, only after owning one’s world could one be detached from the colossal prison.
Calling the madwoman as mother in the first encounter. Mo Xiaofei knew that he would not do such a thing. Perhaps, it was fairer to say that he did not even think about doing this.
Madam, how could your daughter be a man?
As a healthy man, Mo Xiaofei, who had never dressed up as a trap, had never thought of doing this in his subconscious mind. However, it appeared that dizziness did not strike him this time.
Seeing that Haru Narukami seemed to be caught in a specific memory under Zixing’s cry, Mo Xiaofei’s heartbeat accelerated subconsciously.
It had been a year for the reincarnation loop on the same day. Finally, some progress was made!
“Chizuko…my daughter…” Haru Narukami suddenly raised her head and firmly grasped her hands on the wood columns. She even tried to squeeze her face out of the gap!
She tried hard.
Even though Mo Xiaofei had seen Haru Narukami’s horrifying face many times, he still felt his heart racing at this time. For the first time, Haru Narukami had such a reaction!
“You are not my daughter. You are a monster! You are a monster! Go away…monster! Leave! Please don’t come near me!! Don’t come near me!!!”
Haru Narukami suddenly showed a horrified look, shivering in fear, and squatted directly on the ground. She held her head in both hands, “Go away…Go away…”
Zixing subconsciously raised her head and glanced at Mo Xiaofei. She saw him shaking his head questioningly, and he frowned immediately. Zixing continued to look at Haru Narukami and whispered, “Mother, what’s the matter with me? How can I be a monster? I am your daughter. Chizuko Nagato. Mother, don’t you recognize me?”
“Nagato… Monster… Nagato…” Haru Narukami’s reaction at the moment was even more intense. She suddenly screamed, “Please! Please don’t let me give birth to this monster. I will do whatever you want… Don’t… Don’t…Ah!“
After making a distorted cry, Haru Narukami ran into the wall frantically!
Across the wooden columns, Mo Xiaofei and Zixing, who still lost their power, could not stop all of this. However, Haru Narukami’s body was attached tightly to something. She did not smash her head into the wall.
It turned out that her ankle was tied with an iron chain under her kimono. Mo Xiaofei had not noticed it despite multiple visits.
Haru Narukami stretched out her hands madly, trying to grab towards the stone wall. Her fingers broke directly when grasping the wall. Rows of shocking blood flowed down the wall, but she did not seem to feel pain!
