Chapter 8: 31st Year Of Great Qin.

Edited by: Mochiusagi 

Shen Changqing was already very familiar with the Mei Nu.

Every month, he would come to the Demon Suppression Prison six times. Every time he entered the Demon Suppression Prison, the first thing he saw was this monster.

But what made him speechless was that every time, this Mei Nu would appear no different than the past.

Everytime, the Mei Nu would attempt to charm Shen Changqing.

Two months passed.

Every five days, Shen Changqing would go to the Library.

In addition to looking for some other Martial Arts, the rest of his time was spent looking for information about demons and monsters.

Regarding these things, it was reasonable to ask for advice from some Official Slayers and he should be able to figure it out.

Unfortunately, Shen Changqing does not know any Official Slayer. 


He could ask Liu Chang. However, although the other party's attitude was relaxed, he would never answer Shen Changqing's questions and would only say something that Liu Chang was willing to say.


To this, Shen Changqing admired the Demon Suppression Division giving this kind of free-range to its members.

Even for the newcomers, they only talk about some basic rules. As for the rest of the things, they would not teach anything, and members have to rely on their own to figure it out.

Hence, Shen Changqing could only rely on himself, and found some information in the Library.

Fortunately, there were not that many books regarding the demons and monsters. Otherwise, it would've taken him a long time.

As long as you go to the relevant area, you'll find similar books in the bookshelf.   

Shen Changqing searched through one book one after the other and gained some understanding.

"In the 31st year of Great Qin, a meteor fell from the sky, which marked the appearance of the demons and monsters that brought chaos in the world.”


“In order to maintain stability, the Great Qin set up the Demon Suppression Division. It's mission was to eliminate the threats of monsters and demons, and ensure peace!”

Looking at the Mei Nu in front of him, Shen Changqing recalled the information that stuck the most in his mind.

Demons and monsters were not originally there, instead they just appeared out of thin air in the 31st year of Great Qin.

Currently, it was the 381st year of Great Qin.

In other words, the demons and monsters had now existed for more than 300 years.

Since the Demon Suppression Division division was established after their appearance, although it's slightly later, it was also about 300 years.

"I always thought that the so-called demons and monsters were the dead evolving into these evil creatures. But it seems that I thought too much–"

Shen Changqing shook his head slightly, and immediately left from where the Mei Nu was.

300 years...

Even after such a long time, the Great Qin did not figure out the origin of the demons and monsters. So, even if Shen Changqing was curious in his heart, he couldn't do much.


Though there was the possibility that the Great Qin had long figured it out, but just kept the knowledge hidden for some special reason.

However, regardless of which one it was, it was not something a small Apprentice Slayer can interfere in.

Passing by the Mei Nu, Shen Changqing walked past one cell after another, and in less than half an hour, he finished his patrol of the second layer.

Of course, he had no intention of leaving yet and headed directly for the third layer.

Just as he entered the third layer, a black shadow caught his eyes.

Shen Changqing instinctively circulated Pure Yang True Qi, as he fixed his eyes towards the black shadow.

He then saw that the black shadow was not a demon nor a monster, but a Slayer.

Looking at the other person's robe, Shen Changqing understood that the visitor was like himself; an Apprentice Slayer.


"Strange, isn't it me patrolling the third layer today? Why is there another Apprentice Slayer here?!"

Looking at Shen Changqing, Meng Shan frowned.

The patrol of each layer of the Demon Suppression Prison only required one person.

Ever since he took the mission, he had never seen another Apprentice Slayer on the third layer.

Although he was curious in his heart, Meng Shan did not show it too much. He just slightly cupped his hands: "Red Black Court Apprentice Slayer Meng Shan, dare to ask who your Excellency is?"

"Yellow Court Apprentice Slayer Shen Changqing!"

Shen Changqing cupped his hands in return.

He also did not expect that he would meet someone from the Red Black Slayer Court here.

After the simple greeting, both of them did not say anything else. After a slight nod, both went their separate ways.

Standing at the exit of the third layer.

Meng Shan couldn't help but glance back, and immediately saw Shen Changqing's figure walking straight towards the entrance of the fourth layer without pausing.

This scene made his heart tremble.

"Daring to go to the fourth layer where only someone at the Qi Circulation Realm can go... When did the Yellow Court have such a powerful Apprentice Slayer?!"

As a veteran who had stayed for more than half a year in the Demon Suppression Division, Meng Shan knew very well what kind of danger the fourth layer of the Demon Suppression Prison possessed.

Even though he was only one step away from the Qi Circulation Realm, he didn't dare to go to the fourth layer.

An Apprentice Slayer, however, dared to do so.

The other party was either looking for death, or was strong enough to be compared to an Official Slayer.


"Yellow Court Apprentice Slayer Shen Changqing!"

Meng Shan silently recited in his heart and memorized this name.

An Apprentice Slayer qualified to enter the fourth layer, if he did not die, then his strength was definitely not to be trifled with.

In the future, when he becomes an Official Slayer, Meng Shan might deal with the other party.

However, Meng Shan also did not pry too much.

The Demon Suppression Division does not allow prying into other people's privacy. Doing so would only bring the disaster of killing oneself.

Besides, Shen Changqing's strength, in Meng Shan's opinion, was much stronger than his own.

Unless Shen Changqing was an idiot, he would not be foolish enough to jump into the fourth layer.

Meanwhile, on Shen Changqing's side. He had already stepped into the fourth layer.

Just now, the encounter with a Red Black Court Apprentice Slayer was just a small event. 


He simply remembered the name of Meng Shan, but had no other plans for the time being.

Shen Changqing had visited the Demon Suppression Prison no less than ten times, but Shen Changqing did not want to enter the fourth layer.

However, this time was different.

Two days ago, he officially broke through to Level 3 of the [Pure Yang Kung Fu]. Since the [Pure Yang Kung Fu] had a total of 9 levels, achieving Level 3 was considered a small achievement.

Shen Changqing felt that the Pure Yang True Qi in his dantian was almost twice as dense as the Thirteen Cross Practice True Qi.


This was why he dared to enter the fourth layer.

"It's been a long time since I've obtained Killing Value, so don't let me down fourth layer!"

Bearing the impact of the coldness, his Pure Yang True Qi automatically operated, offsetting all of the coldness in his body. Shen Changqing then walked towards the first cell.

The layout of the fourth layer was similar to the first three layers.

Walking to the first cell, a strong smell of blood assaulted his face.

Even Shen Changqing, who was accustomed to the smell of blood, felt a strong discomfort.


He took a step back and looked towards the cell.

He saw a green scaled creature that's about the same size as a human. But its arms were weirdly long and it had no facial features. It was currently bound inside.


Its limbs, head, and the rest of its body, were bound by thick iron nails running through it.

There was clearly a strong struggle, but not a single drop of blood came out of its wound.


Shen Changqing looked at the creature that was nailed in the cell and his face instantly changed.

Demons were existences that were more advanced than monsters.

Any demon, if left unattended, could slaughter a city.

He had also only seen pictures of demons in the Library, but had never really seen a living demon.

This demon in front of him was the first one.

Looking at that demon, Shen Changqing could clearly feel its tyrannical aura as well as the disgusting smell of blood.

Looking at it for a long time, an unstoppable feeling of fear surged in him.

However, Shen Changqing forced himself to calm down.

Although demons were strong, this demon was currently imprisoned and it wouldn't escape easily. 


Although the cells seem to be very simple, it was specifically designed for sealing demons and monsters.

Otherwise, those imprisoned demons and monsters would have escaped long ago.

Although his line of sight was on the demon, Shen Changqing's attention was on the panel.

"This is strange..."

"How could there be none?"

Half a quarter of an hour passed, but the Killing Value on the panel still had no change. Shen Changqing's face was gradually becoming ugly.

The Killing Value he obtained was all from body parts of the demons–


"Wait, demon remnants!"

Shen Changqing thought of a key point and immediately withdrew his mind from the panel, followed by observing the demon in front of him again.

The demon remnants provided him with Killing Value. But the demon in front of him did not.

So a question popped up...

There must be some difference between the two that causes one to give no Killing Value.

The most obvious one was that the demon remnants, strictly speaking, were dead. Although they look alive, really speaking, they were not considered alive in the sense.

Shen Changqing recalled information from the Library. 

A demon remnant was not a living thing, but the demon in front of him was obviously one.

Connecting the dots, Shen Changqing was sure of one thing.

"Killing Value can only be obtained from a dead demon, there is no way to get it from a living demon–, wait, I understand now!"

"If Killing Value cannot be obtained on a living demon, then accordingly, it also cannot be obtained from a living monster, which was why I couldn't get one from monsters before because they were all alive!"

"That is to say, if there is a dead monster, I might get Killing Value from it!"

Sorting through the information, Shen Changqing obtained more understanding of how the panel works.

At least, he now had a relatively solid guess on how to obtain Killing Value. 


But he'll have to rely on himself to verify it.

However, Shen Changqing understood that he had no way to do so right now.

That's because the demons and monsters in the Demon Suppression Prison wouldn't just commit su¡c¡de, and with his current strength, he does not have the ability to kill them. 


"This matter can only wait until later!"

Shen Changqing took a deep breath. He did not give up all hope and strolled around the other cells on the fourth layer.

Unfortunately, the ones held on the fourth layer were all living demons.

At the end of the day, he could only reluctantly leave.
