When City Lord Tu Hai and Lord Ling Yun returned to Sun Island, there was a Heaven Rank expert, radiating a sun-like presence, who was visiting Sun Island.
At first, City Lord Tu Hai thought that this Heaven Rank expert was Third Young Master, but upon closer inspection, he realized that he was a different young man. This Heaven Rank expert was from the Eastern Demon Tribe. As the growth rate of these demons was vastly different from humans the demon warrior in front of him was at least eight-hundred years old, if not a thousand years old, but he still maintained the look of a twenty-something youth. City Lord Tu Hai was not surprised by this. He knew that Eastern Demon Tribe members aged very slowly, some of them aging even slower than Ancient Dragons.
Humans reach full adulthood in a few decades.
A cycle of one or two hundred years can be enough to give birth to a generation of powerful warriors.
Of all the races, humans have the fastest growth. Other races like the Ancient Dragons, the Ancient Titans, and the Eastern Demon Tribe are the opposite of this. An Ancient Dragon that’s a dozen years old would still be considered a baby. It would need a few hundred years to grow to be a child, not old enough to even reach into its teenage years.
The Eastern Demon Tribe also had a few abnormal members who grew slightly faster but, in general, they were a slow-growing race.
For many of the younger members of the Eastern Demon Tribe, their looks would not change within a span of one to two hundred years—they would all look like babies! Only after a thousand years would there be a visible change in members of the Eastern Demon Tribe. To reach full maturity and their peak strength it would take about ten thousand years… Such a slow rate of maturation, even when compared to the Ancient Dragons and Ancient Titans, who were famous for their slow growth rates, could be said to be one of the slowest within Heaven Realm.
Not only did the Eastern Demon Tribe have a slow growth rate they also had a low fertility rate.
An ancient sage once joked about this, saying that if the Eastern Demon Tribe had the reproductive power of humans, they would have dominated Heaven Realm long ago.
In reality, not only the Eastern Demon Tribe, all slow-growing, high-potential races, face the problem of low fertility rates. No matter how diligently the Eastern Demon Tribe and the Ancient Dragons trained their newer generations, they were still not a match for the lazy human race.
“Distinguished guest, may I ask why you have come to Rizhao City?” Tu Hai was startled by the appearance of this strong young warrior. Just recently they had been graced by the passing Third Young Master, now, there was another expert who had come to visit? Was some divine treasure recently unearthed in Rizhao City? After closer inspection, City Lord Tu Hai realized that this Eastern Demon Tribe warrior, with the radiance of the sun, actually had the strength of Heaven Realm, Level 5! His heart started to beat even faster.
“You’re the City Lord? I am Eighth Prince Wu Hai of the Three-Legged Golden Crow Tribe of Tang Valley. I came to your city to retrieve my concubine.”
Tu Hai was overcome by despair that Eighth Prince Wu Hai would accuse him of such a heinous crime.
Tu Hai thought, “Boss, Rizhao City is millions of miles away from Tang Valley, even traveling via teleportation circles, it would take more than a month to get there. How can you say I went to Tang Valley and abducted your concubine? Besides, even if I had the guts, I wouldn’t have the ability to run to Tang Valley. Because the Tang Valley, also known as the Valley of the Sun, is the settlement of the Golden Crow Tribe. It’s a famous forbidden place in the Upper Heaven Realm. How could a small city lord like himself run to the Tang Valley and abduct the concubine of a Prince?”
He had never entered the Upper Heaven Realm and knew next to nothing about the goings-on in the Upper Heaven Realm. Even Lord Ling Yun felt that Tu Hai had been unjustly accused.
Apart from occasionally running around outside his own city, and sometimes visiting the surrounding ones, Tu Hai would normally not set foot outside of Ling Yun country. Although Tu Hai had a lot of women, Lord Ling Yun believed that even if Tu Hai had the guts of the whole of Sun Island, he would not dare to abduct the royal consort of the Eastern Demon Tribe.
Lord Ling Yun tentatively inquired, “Your Highness… this… could there be some misunderstanding here?”
Eighth Prince Wu Hai waved his hand firmly, “There is no misunderstanding, my concubine is in Rizhao City.”
Tu Hai nearly burst into tears upon hearing this. Screw this!
Although he had snatched many women in the past, he had never tried to snatch a beauty from the Eastern Demon Tribe before. He would never have the guts to go against the Eastern Demon Tribe. Wouldn’t that just be looking for death?
“Your Highness, Eighth Prince, why would your concubine be in Rizhao City?” Tu Hai asked. Fortunately, just at that moment, a savior appeared. Yue Yang, who was on his way to the Sun Island City Lord’s castle, just happened to pass by in a luxurious flying carriage. When he saw the glittering member of the Three-Legged Golden Crow Tribe standing in mid-air, feeling a bit curious, he stopped.
“What race are you? Why do you feel so much like us?” the Eighth Prince was even more curious when he looked at Yue Yang.
“Human.” Yue Yang replied, shrugging his shoulders.
“Impossible… Forget it, while the vast majority of humans are weak, there are strong ones, and you may be an exception.” The Eighth Prince’s words actually resonated with Tu Hai, who also felt that the Third Young Master didn’t feel like a human, but who couldn’t deny it. During this time, Lord Ling Yun secretly observed Yue Yang but did not immediately come forward to introduce himself.
“What a matchless young man!” After he had observed Yue Yang, Lord Ling Yun secretly praised him in his heart.
Lord Ling Yun had originally been a bit skeptical about Tu Hai’s previous comments. Could there really be such an outstanding young man?
Could you really say that he was matchless just from the ten puzzles he sent? Now that Lord Ling Yun had seen him with his own eyes, he knew that what Tu Hai had said was true.
If there hadn’t been anybody to compare him too, this feeling might not have been so strong… Right now, before them was the extremely outstanding Eighth Prince of the Eastern Demon Tribe, standing right in front of Third Young Master. When comparing the two, Yue Yang, a human, was not only not intimidated by Eighth Prince Wu Hai of the Three-Legged Golden Crow Tribe, who was releasing a sun-like radiance, rather he had an air around him that suggested that he would leave Eighth Prince Wu hai behind in his dust. In the eyes of the surrounding people, this only made Yue Yang all the more outstanding, and all the more abnormal.
Even Lord Ling Yun, who had been a Lord of Ling Yun country for thousands of years, couldn’t help but feel ashamed of himself when he saw this young man.
Was this the difference between clouds and mud?
This was it!
