The big scorpion was shocked. The beam of light from the demonic eye was too terrifying. It even pierced through the divine light of the green lotus. If Qin Chen was hit, he would definitely die.
Yet, the corner of Qin Chen’s mouth rose and he snorted. He held the green lotus in his hand and waved it in the air, clashing with the beam of light from the demonic eye.
Under the big scorpion’s incredulous gaze, the green lotus was like an emperor’s sword. It directly split the light beam shot out by the demonic eye into two and even shattered a lot of demonic energy.
“You’ve recovered!” The demonic eye was shocked and looked at Qin Chen in surprise.
At this moment, Qin Chen seemed to have changed into a different person. His entire body emitted divine light and the Chaotic Holy Body was revived, all the paths in the heavens resonating with it.
He looked coldly at the demonic eye in the demonic energy and said in a deep voice, “Back then, seeing that your bloodline was extraordinary, I spared your life. I didn’t expect you to have become so powerful and killed so many people. It’s time to settle the score with you today.”
“Hmph! How much of your strength will you be able to use in someone else’s body? After suppressing me for so many years, I should be the one to settle the score today!” The demonic eye shouted angrily, and a monstrous aura attacked. The big scorpion shivered, feeling that its soul and bloodline were being suppressed.
Qin Chen didn’t say anything. Instead, he waved the green lotus in the air again. Divine might was scattered, and the demonic energy in the hall dissipated. The darkness faded, and the demonic eye finally revealed its true appearance.
It was a huge tiger with wings, a bloody mouth, and sharp fangs. Its entire body was covered in spikes, and there was a pair of big bull horns on its head. It looked extremely ferocious.
“This is… This is a Qiongqi?” The big scorpion looked at the demonic eye’s true body in shock, its eyes full of fear.
Qiongqi was one of the primordial Chaotic Demon Gods, an existence on par with the real dragons and divine phoenixes. A ferocious beast like this should have been extinct long ago. The big scorpion did not expect there to be one here.
“Roar!” A beast’s roar rang out, and the entire hall trembled. The terrifying might caused the big scorpion to shiver.
Qiongqi was showing its might. It opened its bloody mouth and stared at Qin Chen with its blood-red eyes. Demonic energy surrounded its body and the divinity was being eroded.
Qiongqi circled Qin Chen, its eyes filled with fear. With a low growl, it spat out a stream of demonic energy, which covered half of the hall and hid its body.
Qin Chen waved his green lotus and repelled the demonic energy. Just as the demonic energy was dissipated, Qiongqi appeared in the air like a tiger pouncing at Qin Chen with its mouth wide open.
“Bind!” Qin Chen shouted and threw out the green lotus in his hand. The divine might that was released trapped Qiongqi in the air, rendering it unable to move.
“Roar!” Qiongqi let out an angry roar, and a monstrous demonic energy burst out of its body. The demonic energy eroded the divinity, and the divine might of the green lotus weakened, giving the Qiongqi the chance to break free.
“Bind!” Qin Chen shouted again. A dozen chains of the great path instantly shot out from the green lotus, which pierced through Qiongqi’s body and sealed its power.
“Roar!” Qiongqi let out a blood-curdling screech and glared at Qin Chen, “I’m a divine beast born from the heavens and earth. In your current state, you can’t kill me! When I recover, I’ll make sure you’ll suffer in hell.”
“You are cruel and bloodthirsty. Even if you were born from the heavens and earth, you can’t be considered a divine beast. In my current state, I can’t kill you, but I never intended to kill you either!” Qin Chen chuckled and waved his hand. The green lotus exuded a dazzling divine might. With the chains of the great path as the carrier, it continuously absorbed the energy within Qiongqi’s body.
“Damn it. To think you’re absorbing my power! You’re courting death!” Qiongqi was furious. The energy that had accumulated for tens of thousands of years was being absorbed. It roared, and the chains of the great path were rattled so hard that they made clanking sounds. However, it was still bound in the air and could not budge at all.
“For today’s cause, I will return the favor in the future. Since I have borrowed your strength today, I’ll return it to you in the future,” Qin Chen snorted and his eyes lost their light. Then, he fainted.
However, the green lotus was still circulating and absorbing Qiongqi’s power. The entire hall was filled with the latter’s furious roars.
After half an hour, Qin Chen woke up while rubbing his head. He had no idea what had just happened. He only knew that his body seemed to have been taken over.
“Junior, I borrowed your body just now. Now, I’ll give you a big gift!” A voice rang in Qin Chen’s ears. Before he could react, Qiongqi, who was bound in the air, suddenly became smaller and turned into a beam of light, darting into Qin Chen’s dantian.
Qin Chen was shocked. He hurriedly sent his consciousness into his dantian and saw Qiongqi. Qiongqi had also discovered Qin Chen. It let out a furious roar and pounced at Qin Chen’s consciousness. However, at this moment, the chains of the great path on Qiongqi’s body suddenly shone and suppressed it, rendering it unable to move.
“To think you locked me up in the body of a little brat. When my power returns, I’ll definitely settle the score with you!” Qiongqi growled and lay down in Qin Chen’s dantian. It closed its eyes and did not say another word.
After his consciousness returned, Qin Chen looked at the green lotus in the sky. His eyes were filled with fear as he said in a deep voice, “Why did you lock Qiongqi up in my dantian?”
“Qiongqi is a divine beast born from the heavens and earth. If you can subdue it, it will be of great help to you in the future. The Demon Emperor Tomb will be sealed in three months. You should leave as soon as possible!” The green lotus replied. Then, it retracted its spirit and returned to the spiritual pool in the center of the hall, standing in the pool just like an ordinary green lotus.
“Brat, you even managed to suppress Qiongqi! Amazing! Tell me, how much more are you hiding? It can’t be that your realm is also fake, right?” Qiongqi’s bloodline pressure disappeared, and the big scorpion recovered. It ran to Qin Chen’s side with big steps and looked at him in shock.
It did not know that the green lotus was controlling Qin Chen, so it thought that Qin Chen was the one who suppressed Qiong Qi. It thought that Qin Chen had been hiding his strength all along and had only revealed it just now.
Qin Chen’s expression did not look too good. After all, he was suppressing a Qiongqi within his body. If Qiongqi was to break out of the seal in the future, he would be the first one to be eliminated. How could he be happy?
“The Demon Emperor Tomb will be closed in three months. We can cultivate here and look for any treasures, then leave this place in three months,” He said in a deep voice.
The big scorpion nodded and started to search the Demon Emperor Tomb. It kept ranting that it wanted to find the powerful dragon that had died here ten thousand years ago.
After all, if it devoured the dragon race’s bloodline, its strength would improve further, and its future cultivation would be more stable.
On the other hand, Qin Chen did not look for any treasures. Instead, he sat cross-legged beside the green lotus and cultivated, checking in on time every day.
On this day, the big scorpion was still searching for treasures in the Demon Emperor Tomb. Qin Chen checked in and cultivated as usual. However, just as he was about to take some pills to help with his cultivation, he accidentally discovered that the items in the spatial artifact had been reduced by half!
