[Do you need it? You need it urgently, don’t you? As you watch your soldiers die in battle before your eyes, and see innocent citizens being slaughtered, do you lust for power?]
Ji Fengyan narrowed her eyes slightly.
[Don’t you wish you once again possessed such great power? All you have to do is ask me and I will lend it to you. Infinite power, the power to slaughter all…]
The bewitching voice reverberated in Ji Fengyan’s heart, like an incubus that could not be driven away.
Great power, power sufficient to turn the situation around.
Just like the last moments in the capital institute; just like the battle in Moonset Valley.
Ji Fengyan’s breathing became heavier.
If she just gave in, she could borrow the demon god’s power and the power might help her avert this disaster.
[Speak and end this.]
Ji Fengyan suddenly took a deep breath.
“I don’t need it.”
The demon god was slightly taken aback. It would have never imagined that Ji Fengyan would turn down its proposal.
Ji Fengyan’s gaze swept across the chaotic battlefield.
“My soldiers are still fighting with the demons, the citizens are still struggling on. How could I accept charity from a demon? I don’t need it!”
Ji Fengyan gritted her teeth and completely rejected the demon god’s proposal.
She did not know why the demon god had made such a proposal, but she was clear that whether it was the Demon Clan or a demon god, they would never do anything that did not benefit themselves. If she accepted the demon god’s proposal, she could not guarantee that she could control the demon god’s power after receiving it.
In the end, it was still a demon.
A low laugh suddenly drifted into Ji Fengyan’s heart.
[What a pity… it’s been a long time since I’ve seen a slaughter like that…]
The demon god did not speak again.
However, Ji Fengyan understood how dangerous that moment had been.
Perhaps the demon god could have helped her to slaughter all the demons here, but as well… the eyes of the demon god, there was no difference between humans and demons. The massacre it spoke of could include killing everything in Ping City and not just the demons…
This kind of slaughter might provide it with power.
And Ji Fengyan would never permit something like that to happen.
“General!” Linghe had fought his way to Ji Fengyan’s side. At the moment, he was covered with wounds and his entire body was bloodstained.
“We can’t carry on like this. The men can’t take it anymore.” Linghe’s face was a mask of blood. The damage capabilities of the high-level demons were just too great. If they carried on like this, even if they fought to the last man, they could not kill all the demons.
Ji Fengyan narrowed her eyes slightly and looked at Chang Pu, who was standing outside the City Lord’s residence.
Lu Shaoqing had now fought his way to Ji Fengyan’s side and he secretly nodded at Ji Fengyan.
Ji Fengyan narrowed her eyes and made a decision.
Lu Shaoqing took out a bugle. The moment the bugle sounded, the soldiers of Wolf Smoke Regiment covered the citizens in a retreat, slowly shrinking their circle.
Chang Pu coldly watched the bloody battle in front of him. The corners of his lips curled in the trace of a cold smile. He lifted his hand and pointed at the crowd that was surrounded. He smiled and said to Song Yuan, “See that? They are so weak.”
As Song Yuan watched what was taking place before him, his heart was in turmoil.
“The battle won’t last much longer. They can’t hold out anymore. Truly, it has been… a boring battle…” Chang Pu shook his head slightly and admired the bloody slaughter taking place before his eyes.
Next would come the demons’ massacre and the interior of Ping City would become a sea of blood.
Suddenly, a gust of cold air attacked Chang Pu from behind!
