Chapter 1277 – Getting out of Closed-Door Cultivation
“This God Monarch Flying Snow isn’t to be provoked. But the one who passed down the wrong information, Tie Cheng Liu, must not be forgiven either.” The eyes of Bat Mountain Master were cold. He ordered with a hoarse voice, “Eighth Brother, go capture that Tie Cheng Liu back.”
“Yes, Big Brother. We must not forgive this Tie Cheng Liu. What bullshit did he say! An early stage God Monarch who is heavily injured?!” A handsome male wearing violet robe gritted his teeth. Actually, he was partly responsible for this matter too. Ever since the creation of ‘Bat Mountain’ in High Mountain City, it had done quite a few assassinations and plunder. This time, it was Tie Cheng Liu who took the initiative in asking him out for a drink while mentioning the Ascendant ‘God Monarch Flying Snow’. Tie Cheng Liu still said: “That God Monarch Flying Snow has been roaming in the Great Wilderness for an incredibly long period. Hearsay he was originally at the middle stage God Monarch realm, and should have acquired quite a few treasures. Now that he is suffering from a grievous injury, his strength will definitely not be on par as before–it has not only weakened to the early stage God Monarch realm, there is also an injury which he can’t dispel from his body. Hmph hmph, if my strength was sufficient, I would definitely eliminate him and steal his treasures!”
Hence, this Eighth Brother brightened up at the news. He went to report this upwards.
Actually, the higher-ups of the Bat Mountain knew that Tie Cheng Liu wanted to rely on them to eliminate ‘God Monarch Flying Snow’. They were clear of the motivation too.
And they even authenticated the intelligence over ‘God Monarch Flying Snow’!
After investigating… they knew that Housekeeper Yun once used his ‘Jade Light God Eye’ to examine Xue Ying. And they were absolutely confident over the prowess of the Jade Light God Eye! Furthermore, for the sake of guaranteeing success in this mission, they had not only dispatched ‘Fifth Sister and Ninth Brother’, they even sent the middle stage God Monarch ‘Third Brother’ over! This mission should have a probability of over 90% of success. Who would have thought that ‘God Monarch Flying Snow’ was not only fine, his strength even surpassed their imaginations.
Even ‘Bat Mountain Master’ who was ranked top ten in High Mountain City was stunned.
Within an ordinary residence.
The tall and big ‘Tie Cheng Liu’ sat there by himself enjoying wine. His eyes were cold.
Ever since an unforeseen circumstance which happened in the past, he became colder and madder! His social skills also deteriorated.
“Ascendant? All Ascendants should die! They should all die!” Tie Cheng Liu mumbled, “What is it about Ascendants that made others treat them differently? Hmph hmph, I believe that given the style of Bat Mountain, there should be an outcome in these few days.”
Tie Cheng Liu sat there drinking wine while seemingly recalling back about some experience he had.
His eyes became crazier over time.
A violet stream of light descended within the courtyard. It turned into a handsome male wearing violet robe. Tie Cheng Liu who was seated there drinking wine immediately turned over. Seeing the unfriendly look on that handsome male, Tie Cheng Liu felt his heart skipping a beat. He immediately greeted: “Brother Blood.”
“Because of you fool, Third Brother and the others have lost their lives.” The violet-robed handsome male gritted his teeth. He had even forgotten that the reason why they acted had been because of ‘God Monarch Flying Snow’s harvest by himself within the Great Wilderness as well as his weakened strength! After all, those who could stay in the Great Wilderness for long periods would usually be rich.
Even though the Great Wilderness was dangerous, those corpses of the Wilderness Beast were sufficiently precious.
“What?” Tie Cheng Liu paled.
“Come with me. Big Brother wants to see you.” The handsome male immediately walked over with huge steps.
Tie Cheng Liu did not hesitate to flee. Meet Bat Mountain Master? He could guess what the outcome would be.
The handsome male grinned savagely. He extended his right hand, causing it to erupt with large violet rays of light. Those violet light rays distorted according to the wishes of the controller and were currently flying towards Tie Cheng Liu who was escaping. It rapidly engulfed and imprisoned Tie Cheng Liu after that.
Even though between the two of them, one was a peak stage God General and the other an early stage God Monarch.
It might seem like there was only a step difference.
God Generals, God Monarchs, and God Emperors. Each was a difference in major realm. The gap in their strengths would also become more obvious, especially so for the, the natives of the Divine Realm. They cultivated in their bloodlines which came from Chaotic Origin Ancestral Gods. And each increase in major realm would see their strengths transforming qualitatively.
High Mountain City Imperial Wind Clan. The Imperial Wind Clan occupied an area spanning several tens of thousands of kilometers. Given the unique environment of the Divine Realm, for a clan to occupy such a huge region showed how powerful they were.
High Mountain City contained many big and small forces. Even though different organizations were competing with one another, none of them dared to disobey the Imperial Wind Clan! For ‘Cultivation Mentors’ like Xue Ying or Bat Mountain Master, or other ordinary soldiers and officers like Tie Cheng Liu, they were not considered the core of the Imperial Wind Clan. Only the disciples of the Imperial Wind Clan and a select few absolutely loyal members like Housekeeper Yun and other old servants were people whom the Imperial Wind Clan trusted.
“Hong long long.”
A stone door located within the territory of Imperial Wind Clan located on a peak dozens of kilometers high opened.
Two figures stood outside this stone door.
One was the young master of the Imperial Wind Clan, ‘Imperial Wind Lei’. His status within the clan was second only to his father. The other was Housekeeper Yun. Even though Housekeeper Yun had a relatively high status within the Imperial Wind Clan, he was merely ranked three across all housekeepers. Though he was qualified to welcome the ‘patriarch’ here with the young master for other reasons.
The stone door opened. From within came out a middle-aged male who’s hair had turned grayish white from the vicissitudes of life. As he walked out, both Imperial Wind Lei and Housekeeper Yun subconsciously bowed their bodies in respect.
“Father.” Imperial Wind Lei bowed.
“Master.” Housekeeper Yun bowed too.
This person standing before them was none other than the overlord of the entire High Mountain City! He was unquestionably the highest commander, ‘Imperial Wind High Mountain’!
Imperial Wind High Mountain nodded slightly. He turned towards Housekeeper Yun, “How is the result from your visit to the ‘Dawn City’?”
Housekeeper Yun respectfully answered: “Master, all the gifts have been sent back. The Dawn Religion Master is not willing to accept Third Lady as disciple.”
The pupils of Imperial Wind High Mountain dilated when he heard that. His eyes could even be seen twitching as he lightly said: “Given the strength of Dawn Religion Master, it shouldn’t be a difficult task for him. Yet he rejected in the end.”
Dawn Religion Master was not willing to participate in this muddied waters.
“Father, I don’t believe that our High Mountain City can’t win against that ‘Devil Heart Cult’.” The eyes of Imperial Wind Lei flashed with lightning. Sounds of rumble could be heard in the surrounding void. There were even thunder snakes forking out.
“Old Thief Devil Heart has improved greatly. There must be a reason why he could be ranked 987th on the ‘God Emperor Ranking List’ by the Heaven’s Will Clan. Even though it is near the back, it speaks volume for he could be ranked.” Imperial Wind High Mountain shook his head, “Even though I as the father isn’t willing to believe, the truth is clear, that Old Thief Devil Heart has greatly surpassed me already. Even if I relied on the terrain advantage of the High Mountain City, I might not be able to defeat Old Thief Devil Heart.”
The God Emperor Ranking List recorded the 1,000 most terrifying God Emperors within the entire Divine Realm.
Given how vast the Divine Realm was with so many organizations, for one to be ranked in the top 1,000 meant that one was an overlord.
“The Heaven’s Will Clan is also one of the three Great Royal Clans. Their judgment is definitely right.” The eyes of Imperial Wind High Mountain were cold, “That time when I became arch enemies with Old Thief Devil Heart, I knew that Old Thief Devil Heart would definitely not let things by given his personality. Now that he has become stronger, I doubt he would hold back any longer once he finishes preparing. After all, I doubt he would want to sacrifice too many things when battling against my High Mountain City. The point when he strikes is also the moment he is fully prepared!”
“Father, by relying on the terrain of High Mountain City, they should forget about having an easy time against our Imperial Wind Clan.” Imperial Wind Lei was clearly getting anxious.
“One must not be impatient.”
Imperial Wind High Mountain said, “Housekeeper Yun, I’ll be going with Jin’er to the Eastern Wood City! The Ninth Prince of Eastern Wood City once came to our High Mountain City and showed interest over Qing Yin. This time, I’m planning to go and see if I could matchmake both Qing Yin and the Ninth Prince of Eastern Wood City. As long as Eastern Wood City is willing to intervene, given the noble position of Eastern Wood City, he should be able to arbitrate and prevent the vengeance from going through.”
“The Ninth Prince of Eastern Wood City?” Imperial Wind Lei revealed a look of anxiety, “Father, unless you truly want to let little sister marry that…”
If she were to get married to the Ninth Prince, it would be letting a sheep enter the den of a tiger!
And even if little sister suffered from a wretched fate, their High Mountain City would not dare to go against the Eastern Wood City.
“The reputation of the Ninth Prince is indeed awful. But currently, only he could help my High Mountain City.” Imperial Wind High Mountain coldly uttered, “For the sake of the entire Imperial Wind Clan, I believe Qing Yin will understand.”
Imperial Wind Lei went silent.
‘Old Thief Devil Heart’ had already entered the God Emperor Ranking List. Who could help them at this moment? Those whom Imperial Wind High Mountain was slightly familiar with were mostly on the same level as he. Those who were stronger by an entire level were not willing to become enemies with Old Thief Devil Heart. Only a few like ‘Dawn Religion Master’ could deal against this matter easily, yet its a pity that Dawn Religion Master was not willing to help them.
As for the Eastern Wood City Master?
His status was even higher. It’s a pity that Imperial Wind High Mountain was not qualified from interacting with such existences. Only that Ninth Prince from the Eastern Wood City once passed by the High Mountain City.
“This matter is settled just like this.” Imperial Wind High Mountain understood. Currently, they were the ones who were filled with intentions of getting closer with the Eastern Wood City, though they did not know how the other party would react! They could only send someone who had relatively closer relationship with the Ninth Prince, his second son ‘Imperial Wind Jin’ over. They would first reveal their intention, and if possible, Imperial Wind High Mountain wanted to meet that Eastern Wood City Master personally!
“Oh right, during these days when I was in closed-door, how was the city?” Imperial Wind High Mountain asked.
Imperial Wind Lei answered: “The city is relatively peaceful, though there was an Ascendant called ‘God Monarch Flying Snow’ who came to our High Mountain City. He had been saved by Third Sister. I temporarily allowed him to take on the responsibility as a Cultivation Mentor of our Imperial Wind Clan. Just a few days ago, Bat Mountain should have dispatched three God Monarchs to assassinate that God Monarch Flying Snow, yet they all died in his hands.”
