Chapter 850: Start Moving
“He actually let them off?” The old man felt slightly anxious after seeing that. The red-robed girl sighed inwardly too. According to their initial speculation, it was expected for the elders of Blaze Valley be killed. But clearly, this mysterious expert did not have the desire to kill those elders from the Blaze Valley.
This red-robed girl contacted her father through the communication treasure, “What happened to the Sky Sword Mountain?”
“Yi Zi, you should not return temporarily! The Sky Sword Mountain had just suffered from a sneak attack by Blaze Valley. I am currently dealing with the Blaze Valley Master.” Sky Sword Mountain Sect Master transmitted back before cutting off the connection. He could not lose focus on his current battle. Actually, the current situation was worse than what he mentioned. The Blaze Valley had clearly planned everything a long time ago, sending people into the Sky Sword Mountain with concealed identities and the purpose of ‘enshrining and worshipping’ the sect. They had even utilized the ‘Silver Silk Soul-Leading Poison’ against him before starting the battle!
The Sky Sword Mountain Sect Master was comparable to the Blaze Valley Master in terms of strength. At present, the Blaze Valley Master had prepared for this battle a long time ago—he paid a great price to buy the ‘Silver Silk Soul-Leading Poison’, applying it successfully on the Sky Sword Mountain Sect Master before starting the battle. Currently, the Blaze Valley held an absolute advantage. The Sky Sword Mountain Sect Master was trying his best to resist against the enemy, but ultimately, he was on the disadvantaged side.
“Hu.” The distant Xue Ying kept the treasures.
The red-robed girl then stated, “Senior, this junior Yi Zi is the daughter of the current Sky Sword Mountain Sect Master. Currently, my Sky Sword Mountain is in danger, and this junior is shamelessly requesting for senior’s help to aid my Sky Sword Mountain in crossing this difficult ordeal.”
She felt that this mysterious expert had a favorable opinion of her still. That was why she decided to thicken her skin and request the other party for help.
“Asking me for help? Based on what?” Xue Ying said.
The red-robed girl was slightly awkward. She added, “After the matter has ended, my father will definitely thank you gratuitously.”
“If senior could help us, this huge favor is something we will never dare forget. Currently, our Sky Sword Mountain is suffering from an ordeal, and the rest of us are feeling anxious, yet we are helpless and could only request this senior for help.” The old man was respectfully and earnestly asking for help. His expression was filled with anxiety, though he was remarkably calm in his heart. How could an old man who could cultivate to the Unity realm be a fool?
He had determined the other party’s personality, and thus, was using ‘favor and friendship’ as conditions to invite the other party to help them.
“In other words, you want me to risk my life, hahaha…” Xue Ying casually laughed, “May I offer a bit of advice. Your Sky Sword Mountain is on the disadvantaged side. It will soon be exterminated. With your little power, you are just sending yourselves to your death!”
Saying that, Xue Ying disappeared.
“What… he left just like that?”
“He actually left?”
“He said that my Sky Sword Mountain will soon be exterminated?” Yi Zi felt slightly flustered. At this moment, they did not dare to contact the sect master because the sect master was fighting with Blaze Valley Master. They could only contact other higher-ups of the Sky Sword Mountain.
Very soon, news came back.
The situation was extremely bitter! The battle might have just begun recently, but the Sky Sword Mountain was on the disadvantaged side right from the start. Several worshippers and elders were thinking of ways to escape with their lives.
Xue Ying was hiding in the void. He was strolling about. With his current attainments in the Mirage and his concealment technique from the Voidwalker lineage, the two experts battling above Sky Sword Mountain could not discover him at all.
Unseen ripples enveloped the entire Sky Sword Mountain.
It was the strongest domain-based absolute art of the Great Void Heaven Temple–the “Plate Ripple Diagram”. Being the only ripple-related cosmos ranked absolute art, this domain was able to spread out to an incredibly vast region. Besides, the law suppression on ‘Nine Cloud Great Land’ was much weaker than that in the sacred world. Xue Ying’s current Plate Ripple Diagram domain had covered a total of 150 million kilometers! All the experts within Sky Sword Mountain were within his probing region.
Previously, he relied on this domain to ascertain the current situation and had suggested for that little lass to escape.
The reason why he did not promise to save the Sky Sword Mountain was that in Xue Ying’s eyes, the Sky Sword Mountain and Blaze Valley were both parties which he had to investigate. Only after he confirmed that a sect was part of the two great religion would he exterminate them! And with his current power, it was not too suitable to bring along the little lass and the others along.
‘The Sky Sword Mountain Sect Master seems to have some injuries on his body? He is completely suppressed. It seems he can’t hold on for long.’ Xue Ying was observing from a far distance using the ripples, ‘Hmm? There seems to be a peak Unity realm expert located here? It seems that he is from the Blaze Valley.’
Xue Ying went over with a single teleport.
Within an old palace hall belonging to the Sky Sword Mountain, a group of cultivators was gathered here. There were five Unity realm experts amongst them working together, and one could see an array encapsulating this region above with a black snake swimming away continuously. There was even a dazzling light emanating from one of the Unity realm experts brightening the surrounding place.
“These three peak masters are still quite able to resist. But it’s a pity that your Daoist Elder has died! Your sect master is even inflicted with the Silver Silk Soul-Leading Poison. In a while, our Blaze Valley Master will smash all of you to death.” A black-robed cow-headed expert boomed out with his voice. He was relatively delighted. He would occasionally glance at those escaping Sky Sword Mountain disciples, to which he waved his hand, sending a black flame over that enveloped around the distant disciple, causing that disciple to let out howls of agony before turning into ashes.
There would be the occasional explosions in different regions of Sky Sword Mountain. This was, after all, the base of Sky Sword Mountain, and there were many other arrays around. Clearly, the disciples of the Sky Sword Mountain were fighting according to where they were stationed! The Blaze Valley also suffered from losses.
“It’s a pity that the Daoist Elder has been killed by them, and the sect master has suffered from a soul poison.” The three peak masters, two elders and the group of disciples were doing their best to hold on; they were feeling a chill in their hearts.
“Mn?” The black-robed cow-headed expert looked towards the distant. Even though his side had prepared sufficiently, the losses they faced this time were quite large still, “Gong Yu wanted to exterminate the Sky Sword Mountain, but it isn’t easy for us to exterminate them for the Sky Sword Mountain has been passed down from generations to generations. The price we have to pay is not small either.”
He would occasionally unleash some black flames which arced through the sky and assaulted on the disciples of Sky Sword Mountain!
This scene made the trapped peak masters and other experts of Sky Sword Mountain indignant. Their sect which they treated as their home was currently being wrecked, and many disciples were being slaughtered.
“What should we do? What should we do?” All of them were extremely anxious and helpless. They could barely survive by focusing entirely on defending themselves. If they were to escape, the Blaze Valley Vice-Master in front of them could easily take the chance to kill all of them.
They were startled to see a white-robed white-haired male walking out of nothingness. He was wearing a mask and was holding on to a sword. He easily hacked at the black-robed cow-headed expert with his sword, causing that black-robed cow-headed expert to feel his entire body entering a quagmire. Many restrictions were entangling him, greatly reducing his movement speed. One could then see a sword light directly slashing down on his body.
His entire body was hacked away. He crashed against the old wall of the palace hall.
“What, he is defeated in a single move?” The three peak masters and other cultivators of the Sky Sword Mountain saw what happened, and they felt hope appearing in their hearts.
“What, what is happening…” The black-robed cow-headed expert was still slightly stunned. He did not know that with Xue Ying’s current attainments in the Plate Ripple Diagram–it was at the fifth level Star Pagoda standard. If Xue Ying wanted to suppress the other party, the black-robed cow-headed expert could not even move, and would be pressured to death!
The gap between an expert who crossed the third level and one who crossed the fifth level of Star Pagoda… was just like a peak Unity realm slaughtering an ordinary Unity realm expert. The gap was humongous. This Plate Ripple Diagram was also the strongest domain-related aboslute art, and by relying on this, Xue Ying had reached the boundary of Primal Chaos realm. This black-robed cow-headed expert was naturally being tossed around by Xue Ying.
But Xue Ying had to remain reserved. He did not want the two big religions to recognize him.
Xue Ying sent another sword over to the black-robed cow-headed expert. He then saw that the eyes of that expert were slightly beguiled. Clearly, he had fallen for Xue Ying’s Mirage illusory techniques!
After being inflicted from the illusory technique, at this moment, the other party no longer had any resistance. Only then could Xue Ying display his secret technique to investigate the other party.
‘Let me see if he is a follower of the two great religions.’ Xue Ying thought. He stealthily displayed his secret technique, directly allowing it to tunnel into the body of the black-robed cow-headed expert. Under the circumstance of no resistance, it easily pierced into the soul of the other party!
