Chapter #472 – 472 Eight Mysterious Ambushers
Chaotian Sect had been exterminated!
Within a day, the entire Chaotian Sect—from the sect master and elders to newly entered outer disciples—had all perished in battle. There were three thousand and six hundred people who had lost their lives.
And the attacker was a single person.
As for the cause of their deaths, each one had their throat cut by a sword and had died because of an unfamiliar sword energy. Sword Sage was called in to investigate it.
After checking it out, his complexion paled.
Others might not have taken note, but he was well aware that the attacker had actually used the tianyue sword energy that only he possessed. Although the essence of the sword energy had undergone a terrifying transformation, its intent was still there.
“Who exactly was it? Who could know the sword energy which I’ve been perfecting my whole life?”
Sword Sage’s brows wrinkled, but he still couldn’t solve this puzzle.
It has to be known that he’d had seven personal disciples in his life. The first four had perished in the Sixth Dimension while two others were still bitterly cultivating in Sword Sect to attack the boundary of Domain Sage.
As for the last, newest disciple, she had been the ache of his heart for the past two years. He could not forget her.
Ling Shuang was his youngest disciple, and also one whom he had loved most dearly. It could be said that Sword Sage treated Ling Shuang as his own daughter. But she had mysteriously fallen in the dragon mist of the Black Dragon Island, unable to pass the brutal elimination round for descending.
When Sword Sage was given this information, he almost couldn’t believe it.
With her talent and wit, she had been quite formidable. On top of that, Sword Sage had prepared many trump cards for her, so according to logic, she shouldn’t have fallen within the dragon mist. Only if some formidable descenders banded together could she have lost.
Because of that, after the Continental Battle, Sword Sage had gone into seclusion on Tianyue Mountain and didn’t bother with worldly matters. What happened to Ling Shuang, her going missing on Black Dragon Island, resulted in a bit of resentment in his heart toward all the transcending powers.
Now, after two years, he had been requested to leave the mountains by the other quasi deities for the first time.
“It’s my sect’s tianyue sword intent, but the power used isn’t the sword energy of my sect,” Sword Sage said after a long time under the gazes of the many quasi deities who had rushed over to Chaotian Sect.
Everyone was startled upon hearing it.
“Could it be one of your four disciples who died long ago?” Barbarian King Coiling Tiger politely asked with cautiousness.
“Impossible. Even if they deaths hadn’t been real, even if the checks had been faked, none of them had the aptitude. It would be impossible for them to exterminate Chaotian Sect by themselves.”
Sword Sage vetoed the suggestion on the spot.
He was extremely clear about the perception and talents of his four dead disciples. Even if many years had passed, they still wouldn’t have the strength to slaughter Chaotian Sect in its entirety with one blade. After all, Chaotian Sect had eight elders and four great elders.
This was eight ordinary flux sages and four domain sages with sect protection spell formation and many other trump cards. Even a quasi deity would find it difficult to defeat this level of power, let alone killing every person in the sect.
There were no more than ten people in the whole world who could accomplish such a thing. Among those who could, each one was a name like Battle God, Blade Sage, Ocean Monarch, Barbarian Emperor and finally Sword Sage himself.
There might be couple more people, like the pope of Divine Religion as well as Frontline God who appeared to be united after the armistice but were still divided at heart.
Soon, those two also rushed to the scene. In reality, Chaotian Sect was a power under the control of Divine Religion, so it was technically the pope’s territory and they should have been the first ones at the scene.
Instantly, the gazes of the others fell on the newcomers
Pope hadn’t come personally, but one of the four archbishops showed up in his place. He then asked, “Chaotian Sect is the most efficient power under the control of our pope. What’s the meaning of this?”
This archbishop possessed the qualifications to represent the Divine Religion in asking this question because he was the only one of the four who had entered quasi deity realm.
“I would like to know why although this is a matter of Divine Religion, you people were the last to arrive on the scene.”
At this instant, there were more than ten quasi deities present on the scene. Although Blade Sage, Barbarian Emperor, and Ocean Monarch hadn’t come personally, they had dispatched people to represent them. Two blade sages, three barbarian kings, and one ocean emperor stood around.
However, the pope’s people who were closest to the scene hadn’t sent anyone till the very last moment, so everyone felt extremely suspicious.
Finally, Frontline God chose to reveal something after remaining silent for a while. “Truth be told, while rushing here we ran into some trouble.”
Once the crowd heard it, a few were incredibly astonished, but others began to sneer. After all, apart from the people present here, who in the world could make the archbishop and Frontline God feel troubled?
“Frontline God is speaking the truth. We had received a summon for help from Chaotian Sect earlier, but when we were halfway there, we were obstructed by eight mysterious people,” the archbishop said gloomily.
He then immediately provided some proof. He pulled back his red robe, and everyone could see an injury under his ribs which definitely couldn’t be considered as light.
From the looks of it, he had been wounded recently.
At that instant, everyone felt that the matter had become even more serious than before. Even if archbishop had just entered the quasi deity realm and was one of the weakest quasi deities, it was no small matter.
A quasi deity wouldn’t fabricate this sort of matter, and Frontline God had also been one of the people ambushed.
Eight mysterious people?
Everyone felt an unfathomable fear toward them. A faint chill ran down their backs at they thought of the unknown concealed power existing on Earth.
“What sort of characteristics did those eight people possess? What sort of power did they use?” Battle God coldly asked.
“Unknown. Their presence was completely concealed, so it was very difficult to differentiate. But they were all domain sages, near the level of battle sages. I even felt like for some reason they were concealing much of their strength,” Frontline God said after a moment.
Although he wasn’t in the league with Battle God or Ocean Monarch in terms of strength, he was still a leader of a transcending power. His strength could not be considered as the highest among the people present, but he was much stronger than the archbishop who had just entered the quasi deity layer.
Domain Sages who could stop him couldn’t be ordinary, and they had even concealed their strength.
Everyone was extremely suspicious of this suddenly appeared power. Soon though, they also felt a hint of crisis.
