Orochi was on cloud nine. The happiness even diluted the depression of being slashed by the Zhan Lu Sword successor right after breaking the seal.
Orocohi sat on a green grassy hillside, next to it was a blossoming cherry blossom tree that never wither.
However, Orochi, who was sitting here, did not have the slightest charm of a cherry blossom viewer.
It still had the handsome appearance of the unlucky Shuten-douji he swallowed. ‘He’ could be regarded as an overwhelming beautiful man, only the jagged teeth after opening ‘his’ mouth ruined the beauty.
It was just that blood kept drooling from its mouth. Probably, the aesthetics was gore-inclined.
Orochi was holding an arm detached from a certain demon beast, indulging in it. Behind Orochi, there were a large number of demons, [eight million deities], reincarnated demon beasts, and reincarnated samurai. The corpses were now piled up like a hill.
Of course, everything here was ethereal-including those bones that were eaten up and spit out, or corpses that had not been eaten.
Because everything here was built in the spiritual world, or it was a place where the soul could escape their limits. Orochi ate what was in its hand and subconsciously looked at the cherry blossom tree in front of him.
It should look similar to the towering giant cherry tree from the outside world. In the body of this cherry tree that was countless times smaller, there was a girl in a kimono.
What a perfect vessel!
Orochi couldn’t help but exclaim, It could clearly feel how much effort it took to build such a vessel.
Speaking of which, Orochi was an exile of the Xiangliu clan. The Xiangliu clan was known for its extraordinary resilience. The perfect state of the Xiangliu clan had nine heads. However, since Emperor Xuanyuan chopped off the first generation of Xiangliu, severing the rest of Xiangliu’s possibility of evolving into nine heads. But even so, for the eight-headed Xiangliu, the physical body would continue to live as long as one of its heads was still there.
Although Orochi was also eight-headed, it was born without the powerful regenerative power of the Xiangliu clan. On the contrary, there seemed to be a compensation arranged by fate. Without the powerful regenerative power, Orochi had a more mysterious soul power. As long as its soul had not perished, it could switch between ethereal form and physical form. Of course, he got to recover itself by devouring different souls.
Orochi’s research on the soul surpassed all the predecessors of the Xiangliu clan and reached an incredible height. Because of this, in the small space under this strange cherry blossom tree, Orochi could understand how perfect Miki was as a vessel.
As for the person who made such a vessel…
“What a kind-hearted person! Thank you!” Orochi happily grabbed another ‘corpse’ and took a bite happily.
In a short period of time, Orochi had devoured many ‘corpses’ and soon restored to the level before it was schemed and sealed. It had seemingly strengthened by a margin too.
Orochi squinted its eyes, savoring the taste of the tender soul in its mouth. It tastes like a genuine soul.
“What a good Samaritan!” Orochi laughed out loud again, looking at Miki who had assimilated the cherry blossom tree in front of it. It revealed a sly smile, seemingly occupied with some thoughts.
If it was not in a drunken state, it had always been cautious. At this time, Orochi was thinking about the process of him plucking the sweet fruit, thinking about whether it had miss something. Is there any way for the master raising this vessel to launch a counterattack on me?
Orochi felt that things were going too smoothly. It was not that it was terrible to have everything go smoothly, but it raised its suspicion. What happened felt too illusory.
At the beginning, it appeared as Shuten-douji and gave his “true name” in front of Tsukuyomi. This ‘true name’ was the actual true name, but it only belonged to Shuten-douji. It was something that Orochi swallowed from Shuten-douji. Otherwise, it was not easy to fool the Three Deities, Tsukuyomi.
Nevertheless, Orochi mixed something with this ‘true name’ – part of its soul and body.
Originally, Orochi’s original plan was to let a part of himself enter Tsukuyomi’s soul, and quietly infiltrate Tsukuyomi’s soul. After the Three Deities meet up, it would secretly kill the other two Three Deities under the guise of Tsukuyomi’s hand. Then, it could finally recover those Yan Wuyue world powers that belonged to it.
However, what Orochi didn’t expect was that there was also a guy who was secretly plotting something. He not only put the Three Deities into this perfect vessel, but also all the subordinates of Three Deities.
After that, things were simple. The praying mantis swallowed the seeds buried by the oriole, and finally passed out in a coma, so the oriole reaped great benefits.
Orochi, who originally planned to take risks, and perhaps suffer some damage, just sat here inexplicably and enjoyed this sweet fruit. It was a free win!
At this time, the cherry blossom tree suddenly trembled. Three cracks suddenly opened on the trunk. Amaterasu Omikami, Tsukuyomi and Susanoo were spat out.
But instead of spatting them all out, someone part of their bodies still remained inside the tree. Orochi expressed a sly smile. It directly put aside the unfinished ‘arm’ in its hand, stood up, and walked in front of Susanoo.
Orochi laughed at this moment, “Little brat, if it wasn’t for the abandoned wife, Izanami to plot against me secretly, do you think you had the ability to seal me into the ten-span sword?”
As Orochi said, it stretched out its hand and pressed it towards Susanoo’s head. But when its palm was about to get into contact, Orochi suddenly retreated.
Its face instantly became uncertain because the moment it was about to touch Susanoo, it keenly felt that there was something weird between him and Susanoo. As long as it touched Susanoo, then it would fall into danger.
Orochi sneered at this moment, turned around abruptly, and saw a man not far away—Eric!
Eric showed a regretful expression at this time. He had just returned to this space, watching Orochi intended to swallow Susanoo’s power. His heart moved, and quietly placed a trap on Susanoo’s body, unexpectedly this Orochi was sharp.
“You are the guy who created this vessel?” Orochi assessed Eric up and down at this time. It has been a while since he escaped to the Yan Wuyue world, plus it was sealed. It was fair to say that it had no knowledge on Divine Land and other lands outside. It became difficult for him to determine Eric’s origin.
“Orochi, you broke into someone else’s house without authorization, and took away the things from the master’s house. Are you sure that is alright?” Eric sighed, “You can’t escape this time.”
“Only with you?” Orochi laughed, showing its arrogance. “You need to extract a lot of power from this vessel to have the ability to challenge the disgusting abandoned woman Izanami. Can you still extract any power from it? Stop kidding me. You’re just a food to me!”
“Orochi! Who do you say is a disgusting abandoned woman!?”
As soon as Orochi ended its words, a sharp and cold voice sounded! At the same time, the entire grassy hillside withered away instantly. Above the sky, Izanami, who was surrounded by underwater qi, looked condescendingly.
“Oh? It seems that you both are joining forces?” Orochi was keenly aware of what it meant for Eric and Izanami to appear at the same time.
It went against Izanami multiple times. At the beginning, both sides could do nothing against each other. They were almost on par with each other. Eric became a new factor. Since he has the ability to plot all these plans to steal the Yan Wuyue world, he would not be an easy opponent. Otherwise, Izanami would not cooperate with Eric.
