Legend of the Great Sage - Chapter 1603
The space-devouring beast called Navy Li’l Fatty swam through the deep, dark outer space, swallowing star after star, world after world.
It had surpassed all regular creatures in size. So-called primordial beasts were as small as ants when compared to it.
When it appeared above a world, its navy, half-transparent body would fill the entire sky. Even without looking up, all the creatures there could see it, but no one could see it in its entirety.
In terms of the energy it possessed, even True Immortals came nowhere close, because the intrinsic nature of space-devouring beasts was that they were not living, but the rudimentary form of a world. They wandered through outer space according to the laws of nature, feeding off the remains of other worlds while producing even more space-devouring beasts.
After accumulating a certain amount of substance, space-devouring beasts would stop and begin to mould earth, fire, wind, and water until it formed a world in the very end. They went through this again and again to maintain the cycle of life and death among the trichiliocosm.
When Navy Li’l Fatty was still in its mother’s womb, it was invaded by a foreign being called Li Qingshan, turning around to devour his mother instead, which led to a small problem. However, despite that, it still did not possess any sense of self. All that existed were a series of instincts.
Demon God Hundun had become a similar existence. He had assimilated into a part of the Demon domain. He was an “it” now.
If he was ignorant of the situation and fought against it rashly by treating it as a regular Demon God, then he was basically asking for trouble. Not only did it possess an extremely terrifying level of energy, but the laws of chaos possessed the ability to twist and collapse other laws too.
If a True Immortal was bold enough to clash with it directly, they would discover that the laws they controlled would be rendered completely useless, dragged down to the same level as it for an endurance battle of the lowest of powers before being swallowed by the terrifying energy.
During this process, all techniques would fail. Even escaping would be impossible.
Perhaps even the Demon Gods did not understand this as well as Li Qingshan. Normally, they only remained in the Demon domain and never left home, so they obviously had no opportunity to wander outer space, much less enter the body of a space-devouring beast.
Li Qingshan did not even come close to a fraction of their age, but he possessed an exceptionally wide range of experiences. He had once served as a sangharama guardian in Sukhāvatī and he had visited all six realms of saṃsāra. He even had a piece of property in the trichiliocosm that was constantly appreciating in value too. The World of the Five Continents had already become enormous now, far larger than the World of the Nine Provinces from the past.
As a result, when he “cut his ties”, easily avoiding this battle while sending Demon God Hundun back to the depths of the Tang valley, even the Demon Gods were amazed.
Demon God Qiongqi sang praises. “Mighty be the king! Prevailing be the king! You are courageous and intelligent, the ultimate creation of the most perfect combination of the heavens and earth. From the moment you were born, the entire Demon domain quietly called for your name, Li- Qing- Shan! For if the heavens hath not birthed Li Qingshan, the night of history would have been everlasting! He strives for happiness for other demonfolk! Hurrah! He is the great saviour of demonfolk!”
The Demon Gods all remained silent, feeling deeply embarrassed.
Li Qingshan directly rolled his eyes. “Shut your mouth!”
Let alone a mighty god, even a cultivator that had undergone the second or third heavenly tribulation probably could not say something like that. Even the thought of it would not cross their heads.
The worst part of this was when this bastard sucked up to him, there always seemed to be hints of mockery, which left him feeling uncomfortable all over.
Demon God Qiongqi then began to plead. “Show mercy, my king. Spare me, my king. My body is feeble with old age. I really don’t have the capacity to deal with a mountain. After just being crushed for a while, my ache has begun to ache like crazy. My waist is close to snapping too. Cough, cough, cough, cough, I can’t anymore, I can’t anymore…”
As he said that, he even followed up with a string of coughs. His voice sounded much more elderly as well. He acted as if he was not a rebel who had tried to kill Li Qingshan, but an old subject that had served the king in court for many years that had faced unfair treatment.
Even Li Qingshan had basically given in with how shameless he was. If he continued to suppress Qiongqi, it would be meaningless apart from venting.
With the unification of the entire Demon domain, along with obtaining the laws central to the eleven Demon Gods, his power and authority had already reached the limit. Qiongqi could no longer threaten him and according to Qiongqi’s shitty personality as a freak, there was no chance of any betrayal.
He could continue to vent on him, but before he had even raised his hand, Qiongqi would have delivered his face over already. “Please slap me viciously.” He basically seemed like he would continue sucking up to him and continue pleading with him as long as he refused to spare him.
The so-called humiliation and disgrace of regular people held absolutely no meaning to him. Instead, he found it very fascinating and found great joy in it. He was not the type to toy with the weak just because he was stronger, but a persistent hunter of novelty.

Li Qingshan shook his head and waved his hand at the distance. The notice personally written by the buddha with the six-syllabled mantra was lifted by a breeze, gently drifting down.
With a boom, the mountain cracked and erupted.
Qiongqi immediately squirmed free from under the mountain, bowing deeply in Li Qingshan’s direction. “Thank you for your mercy, my king. May the king live for ten millennia! Long live my king!”
Li Qingshan could not be bothered with haggling with him over whether a lifespan of ten millennia was a blessing or a curse.
With the unification of the demonic land, the Demon domain underwent a drastic change.
Rumble. The ground shook, and the mountains fluctuated.
A plateau rose up out of nowhere on the land, so tall that it had already surpassed most other mountains in the Demon domain, shaped like a crouching tiger.
Mountains stretched like the ocean on the plateau with their ridges curling around like dragons, surrounding a peak that had sprung into existence suddenly.
The peak plunged right into the clouds, continuing to rise, smashing through the sky like it wanted to poke a hole in the heavens.
Li Qingshan stood on the peak. Before he knew it, he was already above the clouds. As the swirl of demonic clouds under his feet gradually dispersed, he gazed off into the distance. The wind and mist swirled as thousands of mountains filled his eyes. He could see thousands of kilometres away, like the entire Demon domain was beneath his feet.
That was indeed the reality too.
It was truly a land where dragons prowled!
Unfortunately, no matter how tall a mountain was, it would never be taller than the sky.
The structure of the demonic land and the pure land was extremely complicated, difficult to be described in words. It was not as simple as the demonic land below and the pure land above. It could not even be described in simple terms of up and down. The metaphor of being two sides of the same painting was only a metaphor too.
The demonic land and pure land were still one entity in nature, and the exact reason why they could be separated was because they were connected.
Only like that could the wicked thoughts of Sukhāvatī constantly sink down to the Demon domain while sucking away the vigour, leading to the unbelievably fertile land in the end.
However, that was also why demonic beasts would wreak havoc in Sukhāvatī, passing through the tunnels to invade Sukhāvatī each midnight, at the height of yin.
What Li Qingshan wanted to do was to widen the tunnels between the two worlds and completely tear down this boundary so that the two worlds merged back together, where the distinction of the demonic land and the pure land no longer existed.
This was not for hatred or revenge, but to follow the path of nature, to recover the original Qilin Paradise.
When that day arrived, there would still be the contention of the strong preying on the weak, the brutality of the survival of the fittest, but there would no longer be any demonfolk that were born guilty. Everyone would be able to choose their own fates once more.
The unification of the demonic land was but only a beginning. The merging of the two worlds had already begun.
At this moment, when all of the demonfolk raised their heads, they would discover an almost imperceptible golden lining on the edge of the black sun.
Li Qingshan could not help but reach over as if he wanted to grasp it in his hand.
There would be a day when he made the light of the sun shine on this demonic land!
