Chapter 69 Outside Cloud Saint City
“Weird! That spiritual energy wave doesn’t seem right!”
Zong Shou stuck his head out of the window with doubt as he looked over. He was meditating and strengthening his soul, when suddenly a huge spiritual energy wave swept over. It hurt his soul.
Luckily his two fox tails were able to stabilize the nearby spiritual energy and it calmed down.
Looking towards the west, he saw that there was a fiery light charging towards the heavens. In this pitch black early morning period, it was all the more eye-catching.
“Such a scene, is there a Grandmaster fighting there? Or are there two or more peak Ascended experts…”
Thinking about it, Zong Shou frowned. Estimating the distance, it was six hundred miles away, where the Fallen Cloud Waterfall was at. No wonder Lei Dong asked Yin Yang to bring him away.
However, he didn’t have much worry in his heart. Lei Dong was obviously at the peak of the Ascended Realm. In such an era, where even those Spirit and Martial Ancestors needed to hide in Spiritual Lands, an Ascended Ancestor was enough to roam unrestrained.
Unless he faced the ambush of many similar ranked experts or another Martial Ancestor, he wouldn’t be in any danger. Even if he couldn’t win the fight, he would at least be able to run away.
“Who knows which Ascended expert it is? Lei Dong’s blade intent is at the small success stage, and he is half a step into the Grandmaster Realm. People who he could go all out against and cause such a commotion have to be just as strong, too!”
Since the matter didn’t concern him, Zong Shou shook his head and didn’t care. His arrival in Cloud Saint City was imminent.
Donglin Cloud Continent had a total of fifty provinces and nine hundred large cities. As it was broken up, one city could be considered one country. Half was because martial experts were proud and arrogant, having a bit of power and not willing to be managed. The other half were those famous sects who specially managed and set up restrictions. The biggest country only had three provinces, and those weren’t totally under their control.
This Cloud Saint City was considered to be strong in the east of Donglin Cloud Continent. Although its back rested on the Sudian Mountain range, it itself sat on a ten-million-odd mu plains. It was also near to the eastern Cloud Ocean, and benefited in terms of trade.
When the carriage arrived at the city gates, the sky hadn’t lit up and the city gates hadn’t opened. There were already dozens of carriages stopped at the gate. Yin Yang could only order the carriage to stop at the side of the road.
After a short while, they suddenly heard a rumbling sound, like thunder. A bunch of mounted riders swiftly charged over, each of them riding on a Cloud Stepping Foal and holding sabers and spears, their expressions cold and solemn.
Zong Shou originally didn’t pay much attention, but when the bunch of cavalry got close, he realized that at their lead was actually Zong Ling and Feng Xiao, who he had met before. Who knew why, but their faces were covered with a veil, such that one was unable to see their true faces.
When the two of them saw him, they were startled. Zong Ling directly led his horse near the window, his eyes filled with a mocking expression, “What a coincidence, who knew that we would bump into each other a month after Pill Spirit Mountain. Zong Ling is here to purchase some cloud whale bones to make arrows. Who knows why cousin is coming over to Cloud Saint City, are you really planning to go out to sea?”
Zong Shou felt helpless in his heart, too lazy to bother with his cousin-brother.
He knew that the cloud whale bone in the eastern cloud ocean was really light and was the best material to make arrows. There was also fish gelatin that could make arrows. The various powers of Donglin Cloud Continent would send people each year to buy some. This Zong Ling’s excuse was really good. However, the reason why these two met was always the same and this time was no different, making it a little uninteresting.
Looking at the veil, Zong Shou’s heart moved as he laughed, “Cousin, why are you covering your face, you don’t dare to see others? Is your face hurt? Let me guess, it is caused by Lingyun Sect?”
Zong Lin’s eyes suddenly opened wide in fury. A month ago, he was slapped by that Lingyun Sect disciple and usually such an injury would heal in a few days. But whatever that guy did, the slap mark had lasted for a month and still hadn’t faded, instead looking clearer and clearer.

In this past month, he had invited a few spirit masters to take a look, but none knew what to do. He had also invited a few Xiantian Martial Masters, who had no clue either. As such he had no choice but to use a veil to cover his face.
Zong Shou’s words struck right where it hurt. He had guessed that what happened to them at the foot of Pill Spirit Mountain had to do with Zong Shou.
Who knows, maybe he used the Lingyun Vermillion Token to ask Lingyun Sect to help humiliate him!
His expression became darker and darker, the riders also crowded around. The nearby atmosphere turned cold instantly.
Zong Shou’s eyes contracted, noticing that in this group there were two or more people who were at the Xiantian Realm and above.
Feng Xiao was more or less worried, and he walked over too. He pulled at Zong Ling’s sleeve to signal a warning to him.
Just as Zong Ling was hesitating and uncertain, Yin Yang coldly scoffed. He brought with him an uncertain aura which caused all horses within a thousand feet to neigh in fear and quickly retreat.
The faces of Feng Xiao and Zong Ling changed once more. They exchanged glances and their faces revealed an enlightened expression. They knew that the Xiantian expert that killed Qi Xiao was him!
Zong Ling thought for a while before relaxing. “Cousin-brother can continue to be so vicious with your words! There hasn’t been any news about uncle in a month, and he hasn’t come out of the Oblivion Cloud Ocean. I hope in a few more days brother Shou can still continue to smile. Do you know how many people nearby want your life?”
Zong Shou silently shook his head, without needing people to remind him, he could feel the killing intent all around. He smiled slightly, “I don’t know how many people want to kill me. But if I die in front of brother Zong Ling, cousin Zong Shi would have something to do with it.”
Zong Ling instinctively whipped his horse to get it to move, and when he heard those words, his expression froze up once more as he stared over viciously.
Coincidentally, the Cloud Saint City gates opened at that moment. A bunch of cavalry galloped out of the city gate, dressed in fresh clothes and riding valiant horses, giving off a majestic aura. The first six were all Xiantian Masters riding on the Windrider Foals that Zong Shou had wanted for so long. They were dressed in heavy armor and their strong aura couldn’t be masked.
They swiftly arrived in front of Zong Shou’s carriage before stopping. A middle-aged soldier stepped out. After which he respectfully bowed towards the carriage, “Is Gantian Mountain Prince Zong Shou in the carriage?”
Zong Shou didn’t need to think much to know that this was because of his brother Lei Dong. He wasn’t surprised, expressionlessly nodding and answering, “Yes.”
When the middle aged soldier heard that, he was delighted, “The City Lord instructed us a few days ago that you were going to come over. Our Cloud Saint City will do our best to serve you well and treat you just like our City Lord. Please follow me into the city…”
He paused before sweeping around coldly, and when he looked at Zong Ling, his eyes were filled with killing intent.
“All of you, Gantian Mountain Prince is Cloud Saint City’s important guest. If anyone tries anything funny, they will be our enemy! City Lord has said to kill without mercy!”
The cavalry had all moved their horses to the two sides to protect the carriage in the middle as it moved towards the city gates.
When Zong Ling and Feng Xiao exchanged glances once more, their expressions were totally unsettled.
They felt like they couldn’t see through this Zong Shou. How was he suddenly related to this Cloud Saint City?
In the next moment, Zong Shou stuck his head out and said a few words to the middle-aged soldier. The latter immediately looked back coldly, “You are Zong Ling? Cloud Saint City doesn’t welcome you and won’t handle your business. Scram!”
Zong Ling’s face, hidden by the veil, instantly turned green.
