PMG Chapter 2338: King’s Grave Palace
The Great Demon Halberd of Desolation was still furious, the air thrummed with fury. It wanted to destroy the moon, but it failed.
“Maybe that that peerless demon killed its owner?” murmured Lin Feng and the others. It kept attacking.
Even though the Great Demon Halberd of Desolation didn’t manage to destroy the moon, it at least managed to make the palace appear. The High Priest of the Celestial Sound Shrine wasn’t far from Lin Feng and the others, looking up at the sky too. His eyes were glittering.
Who had made him become amnesic? Who had messed with this world? Who had made it become a forbidden territory, how come all the strong cultivators of the Continent of the Nine Clouds and the Supreme Animal World didn’t dare come here? Was it because of the person on that palace?
The High Priest of the Celestial Sound Shrine rose up in the air, a guqin appeared in his hand and he started playing it. A deadly melody rose up, a silver river made of soundwave energy flowed across the sky. It crashed onto the palace, but nothing happened.
“There are words,” said Ye Zhi Yun, staring at the blood-red moon. Ancient writing had appeared.
“I don’t understand those ancient characters,” said Ye Zhi Yun. Chi Lian Shan and the fat guy frowned. They didn’t know those characters either.
“What’s the matter?” Ye Zhi Yun asked Lin Feng. He was trembling. It was the second time he had seen this in his life.
“The demon emperor!” Lin Feng was shaking. A thousand years ago, what had happened then?
The demon emperor was supposed to have come to life a thousand years before, and the Supreme Ancient Pit of Hell had existed for a very, very long time. A thousand years before, there were already many legends about a demon. It had to be the demon king of the Supreme Ancient Pit of Hell!
“You understand those characters?” the fat guy asked Lin Feng. Lin Feng nodded. He knew those words, of course, he had seen ancient words in the Jade Emperor’s palace, and they were completely different from characters they used at the moment, because they were ancient words.
“What is written?” asked Chi Lian Shan. He was curious.
“You could make the earth and the sky collapse, you made rivers of blood flow in the Continent of the Nine Clouds, I’ve been waiting for you for so long.”
Suddenly, the moon started trembling and illuminated Lin Feng’s body. Ye Zhi Yun, Chi Lian Shan and the fat guy were frozen with shock.
“You could make the earth and the sky collapse, you made rivers of blood flow in the Continent of the Nine Clouds, I’ve been waiting for you for so long.” Was that voice talking to Daimon from the World Clan?
Why did he understand those characters? Why was the moon shaking?
The terrifying demon lake strength gradually dispersed, the blood-red moon recalled it. A beam of light appeared and enveloped Lin Feng’s body before lifting him away. Lin Feng slowly rose into the air.
Lin Feng rose higher and higher into sky, getting closer and closer to the moon. He entered the sky palace as the astonished Ye Zhi Yun and others stared after him. He disappeared inside the palace.
“The demon lake is gone, we will survive,” said Ye Zhi Yun, taking a deep breath. Thanks to Daimon, they were going to survive!
“How come Daimon went to the palace? Did the demon king call him?”
Qiong Hai Ya and Qiong Jiu Tian appeared. Qiong Hai Ya’s lower body was missing, it had been corroded away. However, when the demon lake disappeared, some strength appeared around them and they recovered.
“I’m saved, it was the will of Heaven!” exclaimed Qiong Hai Ya, raising his head and looking at the moon. He had nearly died. Luckily, Qiong Jiu Tian had given him some precious treasures, which had protected him temporarily. But even then, his body had started being eaten away. He had almost died!
“Let’s find the exit!” said Qiong Jiu Tian. They had to leave.
“Yes, let’s leave this horrible place,” nodded Qiong Hai Ya. At that moment, they just wanted to leave, they were terrified. Nobody wanted to stay in the Supreme Ancient Pit of Hell anymore. Even Saints risked their lives in here.
Qiong Hai Ya swore he would never come back to this place.
They managed to leave thanks to the will of Heaven, ignoring all the demons who had lost their pasts and were just staring at the sky. The two just wanted to escape!
Lin Feng saw an ancient throne inside blood-red main hall of the palace. There were demon king statues all around, and a demon king was seated on the throne. He was the only living being there, holding a demon blade with both hands. It was stuck in the ground before him.
“Who are you?” asked Lin Feng. He tried to keep calm as he said, “You’re not the demon emperor; where is the demon emperor?”
Nobody replied. That person seemed like he had stayed there in that position forever.
The silence was oppressive. Lin Feng glanced around and said, “Demon Emperor, you summoned me here. Why don’t you show up? Why are you waiting for me?”
Lin Feng didn’t understand, there were many things which seemed to refer to the Demon Emperor. And now he was in that palace, was it really the demon king’s coffin chamber?
“I am the Demon Emperor,” said a dimly discernible voice. Lin Feng had the impression he was hallucinating. The king on the throne seemed like he was coming back to life, raising his head.
“No, it’s an illusion.” Lin Feng bit his lips.
“It’s not an illusion. I’ve been waiting for you for so long,” the voice sighed. It seemed like that voice was traveling through space and time to reverberate in Lin Feng’s head.
“Why did you wait for me?” asked Lin Feng.
“I’ve been waiting for you to be able to use my demon blade, for you to summon me, for you to crush the earth and sky, and for you to make rivers of blood flow in the Continent of the Nine Clouds.”
“You are asleep, how could I wake you up and call you?” said Lin Feng. He didn’t understand. Was the demon king sleeping?
“Only you can call me because I am you and you are me,” said the voice.
“Come, take the blade and wake me up.. Then, you’ll defy the earth and sky, my blood will be your path. You will create a gigantic palace of blood,” said the voice. Lin Feng was trembling. I am you and you are me?
The demon emperor meant that Lin Feng was the demon emperor? He was the demon emperor?
“You’re still hesitating? With my strength, I could destroy you instantly. I don’t need to lie to you. Wake me up and receive my peerless strength, that palace will be yours. Do you understand?”
“I’ve seen the Demon Emperor’s picture, you’re not him,” said Lin Feng, “You must be the demon king of the Pit of Hell. How could you be someone who lived a thousand years ago?”
“Do you think the Demon Emperor really exists? It was just your image, or you are his image. If you wake me up, you’ll receive my strength and you’ll understand everything.”
“Come and try. I don’t need to fool you to kill you.”
Lin Feng was astonished, the ancient words, the Demon Emperor, the images…?
Who was who?
And the voice was right, he could kill him easily, he didn’t need to lie. Lin Feng slowly walked forwards. He wanted to know the truth.
He arrived in front of the throne. He stretched out his hand and put it on the demon blade, a terrifying strength filled the air. At that moment, he started trembling. He had the impression he was turning into the demon king.
“You are me. I am you. Wake me up. You’ll become a real god,” said the voice to Lin Feng. Would he be able to become one with the demon king if he woke him up? Would he become a peerless cultivator if he did that? It was tempting. He was trembling more and more violently.
Am I really the Demon Emperor?, thought Lin Feng. He had been brought into the palace, why did he need to wake him up like that? Why didn’t he wake up himself if he had such powers?!
“I don’t believe you!” said Lin Feng.
