Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“If demons appear rampantly, how can the people live in peace?”
Li Xuanxin sighed and walked forward.
“Master, do you want to take the boat? My boat is free.”
Li Xuanxin agreed and stepped onto the boat. The boatman began to row the boat while Li Xuanxin took out a booklet.
This was a book he had recently bought. It was specially used to record some information about the martial world.
For example… some messy rankings…
There was also the Five-Colored Lotus. The introduction was the same as what he had seen in the Sutra Pavilion.
If a Five-Colored Lotus was eaten, there was a certain chance of obtaining the memories of his previous life.
He thought of the sword immortal in his dream who had resisted billions of demons alone.
Li Xuanxin shook his head.
Unfortunately, he had already postured in his previous life. It had nothing to do with the current him.
At this moment, the boatman suddenly shouted at Li Xuanxin.
“What is it?”
The boatman smiled, “Little Master, although I don’t charge a fee for taking the boat, I have a rule. Those who take the boat must carve their names on the boat as a memento. Little Master is a benevolent monk. You won’t let me down, right?”
Li Xuanxin put away the book and smiled coldly.
“What a great free business you have. It seems to be free, but it actually makes people leave their names for you to absorb their essence. Those whose essence is sucked away by you will suffer from a serious illness at best and consume two years of their lifespan at worst!”
“You’re asking for more than money.”
The boatman’s expression changed drastically, but he still suppressed his laughter.
“Little Master, what are you saying? Why can’t I understand anything?”
“Evil creature! Aren’t you going to show your true form?”
Li Xuanxin shouted and smashed the staff into the ship.
In an instant, the ship distorted and transformed into a huge turtle. The boatman was… a turtle!
“Oh my goodness!”
It screamed and sank into the river.
Fortunately, Li Xuanxin was already a River Realm expert with a thousand years of cultivation. He circulated his movement technique and easily stood on the water.
“You want to run? Namah samanta vajrānām, ham!”
The Immovable Wisdom King’s Devil Subduing Incantation was activated. Golden lotuses bloomed on the water surface. Golden light appeared at the back of Li Xuanxin’s head like a true Buddha descending.
The golden lotus sank into the water. Buddhist light appeared and swept in all directions, directly capturing the old turtle.
“Exalted Immortal, please spare me! I know my mistake. I’m willing to put down the butcher’s knife and become a Buddha!”
“Evil creature! Why didn’t you say to put down the butcher’s knife when harming others? If you can’t defeat me, do you think you can just put down the butcher’s knife? It’s too late!”
“Namah samanta vajrānām, ham!”
With a sharp shout, the Immovable Wisdom King’s Flame World Incantation was activated, directly burning the old turtle’s meat.
The old turtle let out a miserable cry. Its stomach rolled over and the air emitted a dense fragrance of turtle meat!
[Killed the evil turtle demon. Merit +267.]
Li Xuanxin chanted the Buddhist mantra and flew towards Forest River City, leaving the old turtle behind. The fish and prawns in the river fought to eat its corpse.
In its life, it had stolen the lifespan of countless people. Now that it was dead, it was being fought over by fish and prawns. It deserved this fate!
He had just entered Forest River City when he saw an official shouting from the city gate.
“…Everyone, Old Devil Black Mountain has invaded our home and killed so many of our family. Now, the City Lord has given the order to send the Immortal Master of the Fiend Suppression Division to help. We will find other heroic people in the martial world to form an alliance to suppress Old Devil Black Mountain. I hope that everyone can sign up.”
Below the platform, people discussed. There were also disciples from some sects on the street sending out publicity pamphlets.
Li Xuanxin walked in the crowd and ate a steamed bun while releasing his divine sense to listen to everyone’s discussion.
“I heard that this time, the City Lord has also issued a recruitment notice in the surroundings. He’s not only dealing with Old Devil Black Mountain, but also many other demonic cultivators.”
“Well done! We should have attacked them long ago.”
“Our Forest River City has already gathered dozens of large and small sects. It’s said that the Daoist’s Dragon Tiger Sect, the Butterfly Orchid Sect… the Buddhist’s Little Maitreya Sect, Little Buddha Temple… and the Confucian’s Righteousness Sect… are all involved.”
Li Xuanxin’s heart stirred.
With so many sects attacking together, should he join them and form a team?
If there were many people, it would be safer to fish in troubled waters.

Just like in games, there was a huge difference between having a teammate and not having one.
“Wow! Even the Dragon Tiger Sect, the Little Maitreya Sect, and the Righteousness Sect are participating? Oh my god! That Old Devil Black Mountain is definitely dead this time.”
“That’s right. Zhang Yixing of the Dragon Tiger Sect has already reached 840 years of cultivation. He’s extremely close to the River Realm! That abbot of the Little Maitreya Sect is also an expert with 680 years of cultivation!”
“Even the weakest sect master of the Righteousness Sect is a 400-year-cultivation scholar!”
“Not to mention the Fiend Suppression Division and the experts of the other sects. If they join forces, Old Devil Black Mountain will definitely die!”
Hearing this, Li Xuanxin suddenly stopped.
The highest cultivation level… was only 840 years?
‘Forget it then.’
Forming a team was a good thing, but it also depended on who it was with.
Teaming up with an expert was leeching.
Teaming up with trash was carrying.
Not only would he be restrained, but there would also be a lot of trouble.
Forget it, he should do it alone.
His strength had already exceeded 1,500 years. If he could not even deal with Old Devil Black Mountain, they would only be feeding him.
“Master, we are recruiting talents to attack Old Devil Black Mountain. I wonder if you are willing to join us.”
Li Xuanxin was about to leave when a female voice sounded.
He turned around and saw two female disciples of the Butterfly Orchid Sect. Their cultivation bases had exceeded ten years.
“Master, Old Devil Black Mountain is a profound figure. He was once an expert left behind by the Ghost Domain when the Three Realms invaded a thousand years ago. After a thousand years of development, his strength has increased greatly. It’s said that he has already broken through to the River Realm!”
“Under him are countless powerful demons and ghost soldiers.”
“We need to unite all forces that can be united. I hope that you can also contribute to West Shu. We are extremely grateful!”
One of the female cultivators with a larger chest spoke again, her eyes filled with hope.
However, Li Xuanxin did not agree.
“My cultivation level is shallow, so I won’t join in the fun.”
Since he had already decided to farm alone, there was no need to waste time with these ordinary people.
The other female cultivator muttered softly, “What a coward.”
Her companion immediately chided, “Xiao Ying, don’t be rude.”
“Senior Sister Yan Ran, you’re too easy to talk to. As a member of the righteous path, how can he ignore our danger? If he doesn’t do his best for the righteous path, such a person should be despised!”
“He’s even wearing a bamboo hat and pretending. Is he afraid that others will see his face?”
“Xiao Ying, if you continue to be rude, I’m going to be angry.”
The female cultivator’s expression darkened. Although Xiao Ying was not convinced, she could only keep quiet.
Then, she apologized to Li Xuanxin again.
“Master, I’m really sorry. My junior sister has always been outspoken, but she’s not a bad person.”
Li Xuanxin did not care. Experts on the high mountains were within reach of the stars. How could he lower his status just because of an ant’s words? Why would he lower his head and bend down to look at them?
However, at this moment, he stared at the sky through the gauze of his bamboo hat and said indifferently.
“Find a place to hide.”
The two of them were stunned and did not understand. Xiao Ying could not understand his profound appearance and felt that he was pretending. She wanted to mock him when suddenly, the sky darkened and dark clouds covered the sky.
“Eh? Why is it dark?”
“It’s demons. Demons are coming. Everyone, hide.”
On the street, someone had already discovered the reason why the sky had darkened. The female cultivator, Yan Ran, and Xiao Ying’s pupils constricted.
There was nothing unusual on the streets just now, but Li Xuanxin had discovered demons in advance?
How did he discover it?
Before they could ask, a huge bat demon rushed out of the black clouds and pounced at the ground.
“The Black Mountain Token is glowing. The people marked by Lord Black Mountain are in the town below. Kill them all!”
The bat demon opened its bloody mouth. The hundreds of vengeful spirits it had devoured in the deep mountains instantly transformed into ghost-faced black smoke that attacked the town.
For a time, a violent wind blew in the town. Sand and rocks flew as screams sounded everywhere.
People began to panic and run wildly. The cultivators also began to fight the ghosts.
“It’s one of the nine demons under Old Devil Black Mountain, the bat demon! This demon has four hundred years of cultivation. It can spit out vengeful spirits and fight. Its strength is even more terrifying. Hurry up and save the rest.”
The female cultivator, Yan Ran, had already recognized the other party. She immediately pulled out her sword and rushed into the chaotic crowd. Her junior, Xiao Ying, followed closely behind.
There were two or three experts in the town with more than a hundred years of cultivation. They soared into the sky and wanted to join forces to fight the bat demon.
However, the difference in strength was too great. With a flap of the bat demon’s wings, a stream of astral qi descended like a waterfall, causing them to spit out blood and be sent flying.
The entire town fell into danger.
Li Xuanxin’s gaze was like ice. To kill in broad daylight, this demon was too arrogant!
Without any delay, Li Xuanxin attacked.
