Chapter 28: Emergency.

Edited by: Mochiusagi 

With Situ Bei's words, Shen Changqing understood the matter more clearly.

Sure enough, the Demon Suppression Division also knew about the Demon's Essence Blood.

After all, Situ Bei, as a Heavenly Inspection Guard, knew about the Demon's Essence Blood, so there was no reason why the Demon Suppression Division itself wouldn’t be aware of it.

After confirming the suspicion in his heart, Shen Changqing said: "Since the Demon Suppression Division knows about the Demon's Essence Blood, why is there no action being taken? Are they going to just let the Demon's Essence Blood out into the world?"

To be honest, he had doubts in his heart.

If the Demon Suppression Division knew about it, then why not strengthen the seal, or simply, wipe out the Demon's Essence Blood from existence? Were they just going to watch the seal break?

However, the next words of Situ Bei more or less answered Shen Changqing's doubts.

"Lord Shen may not know, but the Demon's Essence Blood exists in a very secretive location. Unless one pays a large price, it is possible to find its location."

"And according to the news, the Demon's Essence Blood is not of high grade. It's simply not worth it for the Demon Suppression Division to spend big resources on."

"Of course, the Demon's Essence Blood's grade not being high is relative to the Demon Suppression Division. In the eyes of the general public, it is a valuable thing!"

Situ Bei truthfully explained.

Shen Changqing nodded: "Then, can you determine what rank is the Demon's Essence Blood?"

"The fallen demon should be a Middle Rank Demon, but after several hundred years of weakening, the Essence Blood certainly will not retain its original power. Right now, it's probably just comparable to a Low Rank Demon."

Situ Bei thought for a moment, then replied.

Originally a Middle Rank and after a few hundred years of time, it weakened to Low Rank.

Such an explanation was reasonable.

Situ Bei then took a tentative glance at Shen Changqing: "Could it be that Lord Shen also has the idea of competing for the Demon's Essence Blood? If the Lord really does, the Heavenly Inspection Guards of Lin'an City will definitely cooperate fully!"

"The Demon's Essence Blood is of no use to me for the time being."

Shen Changqing shook his head.

In fact, although the demons were feared, it did not mean that all parts of their body were useless.

Among them, the Demon's Essence Blood was the same as a treasure.

Some people could use some special means to refine the energy contained in the Demon's Essence Blood for their own use.

If Shen Changqing did not have the panel, then he might actually compete for it.


But with the panel, as long as he kills some less powerful demons and monsters, he could directly improve his strength. Compared to fighting for the Demon's Essence Blood, the former was less dangerous and a much better option.


Shen Changqing guessed that there must be drawbacks in refining the Demon's Essence Blood.

As for what exactly were the disadvantages, he did not dare to guess. The records of the first floor of the Library were limited after all.

The research would have to wait after he returns to the Demon Suppression Division. 

Shen Changqing had made plans, wanting to spend a certain amount of time on properly catching up with some important knowledge of this world.

At this time, a youth suddenly walked in and then leaned to Situ Bei's ear, whispering some words.

The two talked in very low voices, almost muffled. Even if Shen Changqing focused, he could not hear their conversation clearly. 


Soon after the youth finished, he took out a letter from his bosom and handed it to Situ Bei. He then retreated respectfully.

After the youth left, Situ Bei took two steps forward and respectfully handed the letter to Shen Changqing.

"Lord Shen, there is a letter for you from the Demon Suppression Division in the Capital!"


Shen Changqing couldn't help but frown, and smoothly took the letter.

Instinctively, some bad premonition welled up in his heart.

He only came out to do his assessment mission. Now that his mission was completed, he should return. But now, he received a letter. If one would say that there was no problem, that would be absolutely impossible.

Taking a deep breath, opened the letter and read the contents written inside.


Shen Changqing,

According to the news, a Demon's Essence Blood would appear in Lin'an City. This event will certainly attract the attention of many strong people, as well as demons and monsters.

In order to avoid the people of Lin'an City from being affected, I hope you can stay in Lin'an City for the time being and not let the various forces affect the people of the city.

In addition, you do not need to worry too much. Although your strength is not strong, you have the Demon Suppression Division as your backing. Those forces would certainly give you some face. As long as you don't do something too out of the ordinary, they would not make a fuss.

As long as you ensure the safety of Lin'an City, with the credit you'll receive, the following year you will no longer need to go on missions. You can choose to stay in the Demon Suppression Division at ease.


In just a few breaths, Shen Changqing finished reading the letter. The signature was from Jiang Fu.

Shen Changqing had an odd expression on his face.

Obviously, the Demon Suppression Division also just got the news that the Demon's Essence Blood will soon break the seal and reveal itself to the world.


Hence, Jiang Fu let Shen Changqing stay in Lin'an City. To which, Shen Changqing couldn't help but complain.

It seems that the Demon Suppression Division was really lacking manpower. To even let a Qi Circulation Realm guard a city.


As for the words that follow, it's just bullsh¡t.

What does he mean by ‘these forces would give me face’ because of the Demon Suppression Division? Indeed, having the Demon Suppression Division's reputation protecting you was often good, but the point here was that in addition to these forces, the biggest threat were demons and monsters!

The forces might give the Demon Suppression Division face, but the demons and monsters would absolutely not.

If the demons and monsters knew about his existence, he might end up getting hunted.

"This is an emergency!"

Shen Changqing sighed.

Sure enough, none of the missions of the Demon Suppression Division were easy.

Eradicating the monster in Ancient Moon Village was already a dangerous mission, and now, he had to guard Lin'an City? This was a mission that could get him killed at every turn.

But he had no choice.

Jiang Fu was only a steward of the Yellow Court and does not have so much power. He couldn't just decide to give the safety of a whole city to an Apprentice Slayer. So this must be the intention of those at the top.

From this simple letter, Shen Changqing could see how brutal the Demon Suppression Division's ways were. 

Standing at the side, Situ Bei's face constantly changed. He couldn't just ask what was inside the letter.

After a long time, Shen Changqing finally came back from his contemplation.

Since the matter has come to this, there was no way to refuse. What he could do was to stay in Lin'an City and suppress all of the malevolent forces.

At the thought of this, he looked at Situ Bei, then took out the things he had originally written and was personally going to hand over to the Demon Suppression Division, along with the Clear Spirit Jade Pendant. He handed everything over to the other party.


"This letter and the Clear Spirit Jade Pendant should be sent to the Demon Suppression Division in the Capital as soon as possible. In addition, I want to mobilize all the forces of Lin'an City's Heavenly Inspection Guards in the shortest possible time. Gather the information of all the forces and experts currently staying in Lin'an City."
