Eternal Sacred King - Chapter 2712
2712 Greetings, Mistress
When Tang Kong heard the words ‘Netherworld Treasure Mirror’, his face turned pale as well and he knelt down hurriedly.
On the altar, only the Martial Dao Prime Body and Consort Yu were still standing.
Consort Yu had a confused expression and had yet to recover.
She had long known that the Netherworld Treasure Mirror was in the hands of the Martial Dao Prime Body and that the mirror was once the weapon of the Lord of Hell.
However, she did not expect the Netherworld Treasure Mirror to be so intimidating in the Hell World!
The Martial Dao Prime Body was surprised by the scene before him that happened because he took out the Netherworld Treasure Mirror.
Including Hell Lord Bitter Springs, the living beings of Hell who knelt down were not afraid of him, but the Netherworld Treasure Mirror in his hands!
Of course, this was also related to the fact that Hell Lord Torment Springs, who was a quasi-Emperor, was killed the moment the Netherworld Treasure Mirror appeared.
Hell Lord Torment Springs died too tragically. When the blood pupil on the Netherworld Treasure Mirror glanced at him, he turned into a pool of blood in the blink of an eye!
According to Hell Lord Bitter Springs, the blood pupil was the Netherworld Eye and should be a killing move evolved from the Netherworld Treasure Mirror!
The Netherworld Eye was indeed terrifying. In fact, the Martial Dao Prime Body even wondered if he himself could defend against the sanguine light.
The conditions for activating the Netherworld Eye were too harsh and required a large amount of Essence Blood.
Even with the powerful bloodline of the Martial Dao Prime Body, he could barely withstand it.
Unless forced, the Martial Dao Prime Body did not intend to activate the Netherworld Treasure Mirror and release the Netherworld Eye.
To be precise, the activation of the Netherworld Treasure Mirror only required a large amount of Essence Blood.
However, the Martial Dao Prime Body did not dare to let it devour the bloodlines of other living beings wantonly.
With that, the Netherworld Treasure Mirror would establish a connection with other living beings and completely escape his control.
Although the Netherworld Treasure Mirror was burned by the Soul Lantern once, it was clearly not completely subdued!
The Martial Dao Prime Body could vaguely sense a powerful will hidden in the depths of the Netherworld Treasure Mirror!
However, the will was wary and had already gone into hiding.
The Martial Dao Prime Body held the Netherworld Treasure Mirror with a myriad of thoughts.
At that moment, Consort Yu snapped out of her daze and looked at the dense kneeling figures around her. She was the only one who was still standing on the spot, looking extremely outstanding.
She hesitated for a moment and knelt down towards the Martial Dao Prime Body.
The Martial Dao Prime Body seemed to have sensed something and suddenly extended his arm. Before Consort Yu could finish kneeling, he helped her up and shook his head. “Consort Yu, there’s no need for this between us.”
Both of them came from Tianhuang and were old friends.
Furthermore, Consort Yu had just saved his life.
What the Martial Dao Prime Body did was something extremely normal to him.
However, in the eyes of the other living beings of Hell, it seemed to be meaningful.
In and out of Torment Springs City, the experts and living beings of the eight Hells gathered. With Hell Lord Bitter Springs as the leader, they knelt down. However, only the beautiful woman could stand beside the Martial Dao Prime Body—what did that mean?
In the Hell World, they were strict about hierarchy and statuses.
Unless it was someone extremely close to him, no one else was qualified to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Lord of Hell.
Furthermore, the way the Martial Dao Prime Body addressed her earlier on made many experts even more certain of their guesses.
“Hell Consort, yes…”
Hell Lord Bitter Springs nodded to himself. There should be no mistake.
How could the living beings of Hell know that the Martial Dao Prime Body was addressing her as Consort Yu instead of the Hell Consort?
In the eyes of most living beings of Hell, the Martial Dao Prime Body wielding the Netherworld Treasure Mirror was the new Lord of Hell!
That was because only the Lord of Hell could control and subdue the Netherworld Treasure Mirror.
The Netherworld Treasure Mirror was once the number one lethal weapon in the Hell World!
Before the Dharma Ending Era, only the Lord of Hell could subdue it.
The Netherworld Treasure Mirror was the symbol of the Lord of Hell.
Now that someone had descended into the Hell World with the Netherworld Treasure Mirror, in the hearts of many living beings of Hell, this person was naturally the best choice for the Lord of Hell!
Of course, some experts of Hell were still suspicious and were unwilling to admit it.
The Martial Dao Prime Body came from the medium chiliocosm after all and was an outsider from another race.
He did not have the pure bloodline of the Nether race and was not even a living being of the Hell World.
Yet, such a person was going to become the Lord of Hell and rule over the Nine Hells?
Those thoughts flashed through the minds of some experts of Hell who remained calm but did not dare to express any dissatisfaction.
Ever since the person on the altar descended, he had only said two sentences.
Thereafter, eight of the nine Hell Lords were already dead!
This person was even more terrifying than the former Lord of Hell!
Right now, Hell Lord Bitter Springs was the only one left who knelt on the altar and begged bitterly despite his old age.
Which other living being of Hell would dare to resist?
With the death of the eight Hell Lords and the appearance of the Netherworld Treasure Mirror, the overall situation was set and no one could shake the status of the Martial Dao Prime Body!
The Martial Dao Prime Body looked at Hell Lord Bitter Springs and said indifferently.
He had no intention of exterminating them to begin with.
If there was truly a way to leave the Hell World, the Hell Lords would probably be the ones to know about it.
Hell Lord Bitter Springs was delighted and kowtowed hurriedly. “Thank you for not killing me, Master. I’ll definitely be loyal to you for the rest of my life. If I break this oath, I’ll definitely die!”
Hell Lord Bitter Springs was extremely decisive and swore a Dao oath right away.
When he saw that the Martial Dao Prime Body was decisive and ruthless in killing, he was afraid that his existence would make the Martial Dao Prime Body suspicious. That was the reason why he made such a solemn oath to reassure the Martial Dao Prime Body.
After making the Dao oath, Hell Lord Bitter Springs looked at Consort Yu at the side and bowed once more. He was polite and said extremely respectfully, “Greetings, Mistress.”
A blush flashed across Consort Yu’s fair face and her eyes were filled with panic. She waved her hand instinctively, wanting to defend herself.
At the side, the Martial Dao Prime Body was worried about the Green Lotus True Body and did not let the two of them continue chatting. He asked directly, “Hell Lord Bitter Springs, I want to return to the medium chiliocosm. Is there any way?”
Hell Lord Bitter Springs had a troubled expression. He hesitated for a moment before probing, “Master, you’re already the Lord of Hell. Why do you still want to return to the medium chiliocosm?”
“You’ve just become the Lord of Hell and is now the master of the Hell World. If you leave right away, without a master, we living beings of Hell might fall into chaos once more…”
As he said that, Hell Lord Bitter Springs glanced at Consort Yu beside the Martial Dao Prime Body.
There were some things Hell Lord Bitter Springs did not say explicitly.
However, what he implied was that Consort Yu’s cultivation realm was too low and it might not be a problem for the Martial Dao Prime Body to leave for the time being.
As time passed by, without a leader, the Hell World would definitely fall into chaos again.
At that time, it would probably be difficult for this Hell Consort to protect herself.
The Martial Dao Prime Body said indifferently, “She can just leave with me.”
When she heard that, Consort Yu shook her head. “I’d better stay here.”
Consort Yu lowered her head slightly and did not meet the gaze of the Martial Dao Prime Body. She said softly, “If you want to come back in the future, come and visit me.”
