Chapter 1005: Martial Monarch’s Rage
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Duan Ling Tian found the entrance he entered from in a spacious cave by following the route he remembered from his journey in the outer ring of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
The entrance was also the exit.
Without any hesitation, Duan Ling Tian dashed out and passed through the entrance.
A flash appeared before his eyes, and he realized he had entered the boundless grassland in the Illusory Formation again.
He felt at peace when he looked at the boundless grassland before him.
“With my current speed, leaving… should take less than half the time I took when I came in!” Duan Ling Tian was extremely confident in his ability that had recently improved.
Soon after, Martial Emperor Qing Feng’s voice came from the Polyphony Formation in the Illusory Formation and entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears to guide him out.
Duan Ling Tian would have lost his way if Martial Emperor Qing Feng did not guide him out!
The Illusory Formation was unpredictable. Although he appeared in the grassland just like before, there were some substantive changes. It was completely different from the grassland he traveled through previously.
Moreover, Duan Ling Tian who was flying in the air soon realized a problem.
“When I first came in, I was attacked by a lot of offensive-type Inscription Formations that were placed in the Illusory Formation… However, I don’t see any of those Inscription Formations now!” Duan Ling Tian mumbled to himself as he continued on his journey.
Duan Ling Tian and the group of young men continued on their journey through the Illusory Formation.
Meanwhile, everything was peaceful at Crosscut Mountain Range that was located at the intersection of the northern district and the central zone of the northern desert.
In a valley within the Crosscut Mountain Range, three old men sat in the air with their legs crossed. They were deep in cultivation mode, and it seemed like they did not have a care in the world.
The three old men sat in a cross-legged pose as though they had merged with heaven and earth, and there was no distinction between them.
Suddenly, the wind whistled faintly from the bottom of the valley.
The faint sound of wind whistling sounded like an explosion when it entered the three old men’s ears. Their eyes gleamed when they opened their eyes.
They shifted their attention to the valley, and their gazes eventually landed on a young man who was coming out of a gray light shield.
“Zuo Yue?” An old man with white hair and eyebrows who looked like a sage could not help but frown when he saw the young man.
The young man who came out of the gray light shield was none other than the most powerful young man in the current Anicca Sect, Zuo Yue!
Zuo Yue looked over when he heard somebody calling out to him. He was alert the entire time as he bowed and greeted respectfully, “Master.”
The man before him was his master. He was Bai Yu Hai, the only Martial Monarch powerhouse in Anicca Sect.
“What happened, Zuo Yue? Why are you the first one out?” Bai Yu Hai asked in a deep voice.
In his opinion, the longer a person stayed in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, the higher the chances he had of obtaining the Profundity Fragments Anicca Sect needed.
However, his direct disciple ended up being the first person to leave the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
A strong old man who stood nearby laughed and said, “Haha… Old Bai, it seems like your direct disciple’s not that impressive!”
“I think so too! He left the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure so early, I’m sure he didn’t obtain any of the Profundity Fragments,” an old man clad in gray said calmly, his tone was teasing.
Bai Yu Hai face turned solemn, and his expression did not look too good when he heard the two men’s insulting words.
The way he looked at Zuo Yue contained a hint of displeasure as he asked again in his deep voice, “Zuo Yue, did… did you obtain any Profundity Fragments?”
Zuo Yue’s expression turned strange when he heard the two men’s words. However, he quickly regained his senses when he heard his master talking to him. He did not dare to delay and immediately replied, “N… No.”
“I told you so… It’s impossible for him to possess the Profundity Fragments since he came out so early!” The gray-clad old man said again.
“Old Bai, I always hear you boasting about how outstanding your direct disciple is in the past… It seems like he’s not that impressive. He’s nothing like my useless disciple, Lei Zhong,” the strong old man said to Bai Yu Hai with a smile.
Bai Yu Hai’s expression grew worse as he listened to the two old men’s constant mockery. He glared at Zuo Yue fiercely as though he had failed him.
Zuo Yue could only force a smile on his face when Bai Yu Hai stared at him.
However, there was a hint of amusement in his eyes when he looked at the two old men.
He spoke directly, “Seniors… The reason I rushed out is to pass you some news!” Although Zuo Yue looked outwardly humble when he spoke to the two old men, there was ridicule deep in his eyes.
‘How dare these two old fellows mock my master and call him useless?’
He was curious to find out what kind of expression they would make when they found out their most outstanding disciples from Izumo Sect and North Nether Sect respectively were killed.
“News?” The two old men were stunned when they heard Zuo Yue’s words.
Even Bai Yu Hai had doubts written on his face when he looked at Zuo Yue. He was curious about the news Zuo Yue had for the two old fellows.
In the meantime, he could not help but stare at Zuo Yue again.
To him, nothing was more important than the Profundity Fragments!
Zuo Yue had exited the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure because of what happened to Izumo Sect and North Nether Sect. He was undoubtedly treating Anicca Sect’s future as a joke!
“Yes,” Zuo Yue responded simply as he faced the two skeptical old men before him.
“Hmph! Zuo Yue, you better be straightforward. Tell us what you want to say.” The strong old man scoffed.
“Zuo Yue, since you rushed out of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure… It can’t be that you’re trying to tell us our sect’s disciples have obtained the Profundity Fragments right?” The gray-clad old man asked calmly as he looked at Zuo Yue.
“Haha… Indeed, that’s highly possible!” The strong old man could not help but laugh out loud when he heard what the gray-clad old man said.
Bai Yu Hai who was at the side looked even worse now.
“Seniors… I hope you’ll mentally prepare yourselves before I disclose what happened to the both of you.” Although Zuo Yue maintained an expression of humility on his face, there was a hint of gloating in his eyes.
“Mentally prepared? For obtaining the Profundity Fragments? You don’t have to worry about that, Zuo Yue. I’ve been ready since the beginning,” the strong old man said as he smiled.
He did not notice the hint of gloating in the depth of Zuo Yue’s eyes.
However, the gray-clad old man noticed it. He frowned as a bad premonition rose in his heart, and he asked in his deep voice, “What is it exactly you’re trying to tell us?”
“My condolences to the both of you,” Zuo Yue said directly without further delay.
Bai Yu Hai was stunned as soon as Zuo Yue said that.
Meanwhile, the other old men’s expressions changed.
“Zuo Yue, what do you mean by that?” At that moment, the strong old man and the gray-clad old men were not as laid back as they were earlier. Their expressions turned grave, and the atmosphere became tense.
“Senior Tong Shan.” Zuo Yue looked at the strong old man who was the Izumo Sect’s Martial Monarch powerhouse and said slowly, “Your direct disciple, Lei Zhong…”
Tong Shan’s expression changed drastically before Zuo Yue even had a chance to finish his words.
Zuo Yue was interrupted by an imposing aura that was sweeping toward him. He was suppressed and immediately staggered a few steps back when the terrifying and imposing aura landed on him.
All of a sudden, Zuo Yue felt tremors in his organs as his life blood surged. There was a gurgling noise coming from his throat.
Zuo Yue whose face was flushed due to the imposing aura from Tong Shan, the Martial Monarch powerhouse, spat out a mouthful of blood from the suppression.
When a Martial Monarch powerhouse became enraged, his imposing aura alone could make a Fourth Level Void Transformation martial artist vomit blood.
One could imagine how terrifying a Martial Monarch powerhouse was.
“Tong Shan!” Bai Yu Hai’s expression changed when he saw Tong Shan suppressing his direct disciple with his imposing aura.
He released a wave of imposing aura and smashed the imposing aura that Tong Shan released.
However, Tong Shan could not care less at this moment. His eyes were wide open as he stared at Zuo Yue and asked in a deep voice, “Zuo Yue, what happened to Lei Zhong?”
Zuo Yue took a deep breath. Although he was inwardly angry, he completely lost his courage when he looked at Tong Shan.
A Martial Monarch powerhouse was like a giant mountain that was impossible for him to scale.
“Senior Tong Shan, your direct disciple Lei Zhong… He’s been killed!” Zuo Yue said.
What Zuo Yue said was like a lightning strike to Tong Shan whose expression changed again.
“Who? Who killed him?!” Tong Shan moved and arrived before Zuo Yue in the next second. He extended his hand in an attempt to grab Zuo Yue’s shoulder. It was as though he was interrogating Zuo Yue whom he thought had killed his disciple.
At this moment, Tong Shan had completely lost the imposing manner a Martial Monarch powerhouse should have.
Currently, he was just like an ordinary old man. An ordinary old man who became enraged after hearing his direct disciple whom he had treated as his own grandchild was killed.
Bai Yu Hai was stunned by Zuo Yue’s words. He immediately regained his senses when he saw Tong Shang dashing toward Zuo Yue and he quickly shouted, “Tong Shan!”
In just a blink of an eye, he completely blocked Tong Shan’s way.
“Get out of my way!” Tong Shan was angered when he saw Bai Yu Hai had the intention of stopping him from finding out who killed his direct disciple.
He had lost his mind and did not care who was blocking him. He attacked as fast as lightning as he lifted his arm. The sound of air explosion reverberated in the air around them.
Tong Shan was a Martial Monarch, his power was obviously not limited to just air explosion. Gusts of majestic and strong wind swept through the entire valley.
The flowers and trees in the valley shook from his attack.
