Chapter 1293 – The Budur Ancient Clan
When the three teams stepped into the Great Thousand House, there was a strong oppression and the bustling crowd that was gathered suddenly quietened down. Everyone looked at the three teams.
The leaders of the three teams were two elders and a lady. The elders had white hair. One of them was dressed in a black robe, while the other wore a silver robe. Both of them had sunken looks on their faces and were very thin.
As the elders walked slowly among those gathered, no one dared to mock them. This was because the people were wary of them.
After all, they knew that the oppression was coming from these three people! The three people did not flaunt their power on purpose, but the oppression that they emitted simply could not be contained, as the resonance in their spiritual energy and the energy from the heavens and earth was just too strong.
The lady was beautiful, and she was robed in a royal gown. Her demeanor was quite mellow.
Everyone assumed that she must be a Heavenly Sovereign. This was because she was walking side by side with the two elders.
Other than the three Heavenly Sovereigns, three other people caught everyone’s attention. A man in green stood behind the elder in the black robe.
He looked warm and had a ready smile on his face, thus giving everyone a good first impression of him. Only those who were acutely observant knew that he was really a cold and scary person.
A man in a black Kashaya robe was behind the elder in the silver robe. He was different from the man in green, as he looked cold and harsh.
When he looked around, he looked like a venomous snake that was looking for prey. His looks were enough to cause one to shiver!
A young girl stood behind the beautiful lady in the royal gown. She was dressed in white and had almond-shaped eyes. She was voluptuous and looked cold and unapproachable.
Behind them were a trio of youths. Although the three youths did not look impressive, the people gathered that they must be outstanding in certain areas, as they were among such high level people.
“Well, it seems that the Budur Ancient Clan is taking this seriously, as they have sent out three teams. They seem determined to get ahold of the Eight Budur.” The Scarlet Flame Deity looked at the three teams and laughed before looking thoughtfully at Mu Chen.
Mu Chen looked expressionless. It was only Luo Li, who knew him quite well, who saw some fluctuations in Mu Chen’s eyes the moment the three teams appeared.
Ling Xi and Long Xiang, who were beside Mu Chen, looked grave. They instantly moved half a step forward to protect Mu Chen. Although they knew that they most likely could not contend with the three Heavenly Sovereigns of the Budur Ancient Clan, they would not allow them to harm Mu Chen!
The three teams ignored the looks of the people and headed straight to the counter. When they saw the Scarlet Flame Deity and Granny He from the Wen’s, they slowed their pace.
“I am surprised that the Great Spirit Ancient Clan and the Wen’s are so early.” The elder in the silver robe from the Budur Ancient Clan said with a smile as he looked at the Scarlet Flame Deity and Granny He.
After the elder finished talking, he and the two Heavenly Sovereigns from the Budur Ancient Clan looked at Mu Chen, who was behind the Scarlet Flame Deity.
Spiritual light burst out from their eyes and a pagoda appeared in their eyes. As he saw this, Mu Chen felt that the Holy Pagoda in his own body had been triggered. Spiritual light burst out from his eyes and the pagoda appeared in his eyes as well!
He quickly suppressed the fluctuations from the pagoda in his body and moved back two steps. He had not expected the pagoda in his body to react this way to the Heavenly Sovereigns from the Budur Ancient Clan.
The three Heavenly Sovereigns were taken aback, and they looked at Mu Chen in amazement. The youths behind the Heavenly Sovereigns were equally shocked, and they looked at Mu Chen as well. They had also sensed the fluctuations from the pagoda in Mu Chen’s body.
The man in green, who was behind the Heavenly Sovereign in the black robe, squinted his eyes and looked at Mu Chen with interest. He then muttered to himself, “This is interesting. The perpetrator has come to the Holy Gulf Continent. Now, at least we don’t have to waste time searching him out…”
“Young chap, are you from our clan? Why are you with the Great Spirit Ancient Clan? Who is your elder? Which line are you from?” The elder in the silver robe asked Mu Chen sharply. He had a deep frown on his face.
Mu Chen replied flatly, “I am not from the Budur Ancient Clan.”
When the elder in the silver robe heard it, he was angry and asked, “You have cultivated our technique. If you do not possess our bloodline, how were you able to do that?”
When Wen Qingxuan heard this, she looked at Mu Chen in amazement. She had not expected him to be related to the Budur Ancient Clan!
“Hoho, Elder Mo Yin, he is indeed not from our clan. He is the perpetrator!” Someone from the crowd sneered. He replied loudly, as all of the people from the Budur Ancient Clan were wondering where Mu Chen had come from.
Lion King Gu, who was standing behind the man in green, then stepped out. This shocked all of the top powers from the Budur Ancient Clan, who turned to give Mu Chen a weird look. Although Mu Chen had not yet been to the Budur Ancient Clan, they had heard of him because of his mother.
“So, you are the perpetrator that the First Elder always talks about!” A light burst out from the eyes of the elder in the silver robe. He looked sharply at Mu Chen and sneered. “Brat, since you are here, I will capture you and let the First Elder deal with you!”
Having said that, he stepped out and the space suddenly surged. The spiritual energy in the area formed layers of chains, which instantly covered Mu Chen up, sealing off all of his escape paths!
At this moment, a withered hand threw out a blow that smashed the chains entirely.
“Scarlet Flame, why are you sticking your nose into our clan’s business?” The elder in the silver robe looked at the Scarlet Flame Deity, who had stepped out in front of Mu Chen to protect him.
When the Scarlet Flame Deity heard this, he shook his head and said, “You cannot harm him. Otherwise, my efforts will be wasted!”
“Ha, you have no right to interfere into our business!” The elder in the silver robe snorted.
He then turned to look at the elder in the black robe and asked, “Hei Guang, do you intend to let this perpetrator get away? How would you answer the First Elder then?”
The elder in the black robe smiled and looked at Mu Chen as though he was invisible. He then turned to look at the man in green, who was behind him. The man in green smiled and nodded.
As Mu Chen possessed the Qi into Trinity, he knew that capturing Mu Chen and cultivating it himself would be the best scenario. So, the elder in the black robe then stepped forth and, together with the elder in the silver robe, got ready to confront the Scarlet Flame Deity.
At this time, the oppression was so great that the Scarlet Flame Deity was shocked by it. He instantly waved his hand, causing a red gourd to appear.
When the three Heavenly Sovereigns got together, the oppression that exuded from them was horrifying, even though there was no spiritual energy fluctuation that accompanied it. The top powers in the Great Thousand House broke into cold sweats and held their breaths.
The old man, who was relaxing behind the counter, started to frown. But, just as the old man was about to open his mouth, someone spoke…
“Stop!” Everyone turned to look at the person, only to realize that it was the lady in the royal gown from the Budur Ancient Clan!
When the elder in the silver robe saw her, he asked flatly, “Elder Qing Xuan, we are trying to capture the perpetrator. Do you have a problem with that?”
The lady in the royal gown replied coldly, “Why are you so anxious? I remember the First Elder telling us that the Heavenly Sovereigns are not allowed to deal with him. Are you not violating the rules by attempting to do so?”
Mu Chen was shocked as looked at the lady. He had not expected her to speak up for him!
Elder Hei Guang said disapprovingly, “Elder Qing Xuan, we don’t have to follow the rules when dealing with a perpetrator! It seems to me that we are not the ones who are anxious about this matter!”
The elder in the silver robe then said mockingly, “Oh, I have forgotten… You are Qing Yanjing’s sister, so this perpetrator is your nephew. Are you trying to take sides with him?”
Mu Chen was now utterly flabbergasted! He looked closely at the lady in the royal gown, as he had been enlightened by the elder’s words. This lady was his mother’s sister!
