Chapter 1125: Straight to the Enemy’s Lair
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Gold-Devouring Organization’s lair was located in the mountain range near Ruo Shui Riverside.
A shout resounded in the sky, disturbing the peace in the mountain range.
A silhouette appeared following the shout.
In the next second, a person rose up into the sky and appeared before the person who had just arrived. “What happened for you to panic like this?”
“Guardian Tian!” The man who had just arrived greeted the other man respectfully as soon as they met. He then said in fear, “Guardian Liu… Guardian Liu and the other two were killed!”
The person who had risen up into the sky was an old man. His face changed drastically when he heard the other man’s words. “How did Guardian Liu and the others died? Weren’t they supposed to deal with that person who killed a man from our Gold-Devouring Organization?”
“Yes! However, Guardian Liu and the other two guardians are killed by that person’s attendant…” The man who had just arrived said bitterly.
“Attendant? Are you sure?” The old man’s face turned gloomy.
Just like all of the ten guardians in the Gold-Devouring Organization, Guardian Tian and the other three guardians who were killed were at the Peak Level Void Stage. All of them were Ninth Level Void Transformation martial artists who had comprehended more than two Ninth Level Void Transformation Concepts.
Guardian Liu and the other two were equally as powerful as him. How did they die?
Furthermore, they were killed by the attendant of that person who killed their Gold-Devouring Organization’s man?
“Yes, I’m sure.” The man nodded affirmatively.
“That person’s attendant has to be a Martial Monarch powerhouse at least! A Martial Monarch attendant! We must inform the leader so he can decide what to do.” The old man took a deep breath and ignored the man who had just arrived. He flew as fast as lightning into the mountain range.
There were tall buildings in a remote area in the mountain range.
Although the buildings were built in the mountain range that had rough terrain, they were surprisingly organized.
Soon after, the old man arrived before the biggest building. He greeted respectfully, “Leader.”
A silhouette appeared before the building out of thin air almost as soon as the old man spoke. He asked calmly, “What is it, Guardian Tian?”
“Leader… Guardian Liu and the other two are dead!” Guardian Tian said with a forced smile.
The man Guardian Tian called ‘Leader’ was obviously the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader. He was an old man with silver hair and a big mole on his chin.
His face turned somber after hearing what Guardian Tian said.
“It seems like that person’s much tougher than we imagined!”
“Indeed.” Guardian Tian forced smile remained on his face. “I heard from someone else who reported this… That person didn’t… didn’t make a move at all. It was his attendant who made a move!”
“Attendant?” The Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader narrowed his eyes. “Are you saying that person’s attendant is a Martial Monarch? You’re certain about this?”
“That’s what our man reported.” Guardian Tian nodded.
“How’s that possible?!” The Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader’s eyes gleamed as he mumbled softly to himself, “If that person’s attendant is a Martial Monarch… Then that person…”
“So, you’re the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader?”
Before the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader finished mumbling to himself, he was interrupted by a calm voice that came from the sky. The Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader lifted his head immediately as his face changed dramatically.
He did not know when the four silhouettes had appeared in the sky.
He recognized the person who was held hostage. He was the man the Gold-Devouring Organization assigned to monitor the people at Ruo Shui Riverside.
A purple-clad young man and a red-clad lady stood next to each other at lead while an average looking middle-aged man stood behind them. He looked so ordinary that he would be unrecognizable if he was thrown into a crowd of people. He stood behind the duo like he was their shadow.
“Leader, help!” At this moment, the man who brought the three of them to the Gold-Devouring Organization’s lair flew down and ran toward the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader asking for help.
“How dare you betray the organization? Die!” Guardian Tian shouted as he lifted his arm and killed the man in one blow.
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
Soon after, people from the organization came over due to the commotion.
Six old men arrived first.
“Leader!” The six old men bowed at the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader respectfully as soon as they arrived.
The purple-clad young man standing at the lead said calmly, “Xiong Quan.”
“You are…” The Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader’s expression changed as Origin Energy ran rampant on his body. Soon after, it turned into a turquoise energy. It had clearly merged with the Water Profundity.
There were purple lightning and green energy entwined around the turquoise energy.
Those were two Ninth Level Void Transformation Concepts.
Xiong Quan attacked before the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader could speak. A glowing sword appeared in Xiong Quan’s hand out of thin air before he charged out.
Apart from the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader, the seven guardians from the Gold-Devouring Organization could not catch Xiong Quan’s movement at all.
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
All of a sudden, the sound of sword whistling sounded as the sword glow formed a sword web that swept through the place. It covered all eight of them including the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader.
“Run!” The Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader shouted as a saber appeared in his hand. He charged toward Xiong Quan after telling the other seven to run.
Their expression changed after they heard their leader’s shout and ran away clumsily.
The seven of them knew something was wrong when they saw Xiong Quan had vanished.
They felt chills running up their spine when they heard the sound of sword whistling approaching them.
‘Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
A blue saber glow entwined with purple lightning and green energy surrounded them before it rose up into the sky. It released waves of piercing and terrifying aura.
In the next second, they collided with the sword glow that covered the place.
The sword web made of sword glow swept out like a fishnet as it enveloped the blue saber glow as though it was catching a fish.
‘Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!’
Loud explosion resounded continuously in the air. It was the sound of the sword web suppressing the saber glow.
The saber glow was instantly suppressed.
Only a layer of the sword web had faded away as it continued to sweep through with full force.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!’
Apart from the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader and three guardians who managed to escape in time, the other four’s bodies were torn apart by the sword glow. Their body parts were scattered all over the ground.
They were all dead.
More people from the Gold-Devouring Organization arrived at this moment. Their expression changed drastically when they saw the scene before their eyes.
They looked at the middle-aged man standing in the air with fear in their eyes.
That person managed to suppress their leader and the seven guardians before killing four of the guardians.
Their eyes widened in shock.
“Young Master.” They saw the middle-aged man who was invincible in their eyes stand aside after dealing with their leader and the seven guardians. He then looked at the purple-clad young man as though he was waiting for further instruction.
The way the middle-aged man addressed the purple-clad young man made the people feel numb in their scalps.
At this moment, an ear-piercing sound of saber whistling sounded. It was the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader trying to attack the middle-aged man when he turned around to look at the purple-clad young man.
He charged toward the middle-aged man ferociously with his blue saber glow that was entwined with purple lightning and green energy.
His lightning speed caused the middle-aged man’s expression to change since he did not have time to react.
Compared to the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader, his ability was a little less powerful. Due to the unforeseen attack, he had no time to react at all.
A silhouette appeared before Xiong Quan at the moment the saber glow that seemed capable of crushing Mount Hua almost landed on him.
The silhouette shielded him from the saber glow!
The saber glow landed hard on the silhouette.
‘Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!’
When the saber glow came in contact with that person, it seemed as though it had collided with something indestructible. The collision set of a series of explosion.
Airwaves rolled, stirring up gusts of strong wind. The trees and flowers in the surroundings were shaking.
The people’s clothes were billowing in the air.
“That’s… That’s impossible!” The Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader who had sneakily attacked regained his senses first. His eyes widened in shock as his expression changed.
A purple silhouette appeared in the distance when the saber glow faded away.
The purple-clad young man stood there as a five-colored Divine Dragon moved around him. The Divine Dragon slowed its movement and revealed itself when the saber glow dissipated.
A barrier was formed wherever the five-colored Divine Dragon moved, protecting the purple-clad young man within it.
Nine Dragons’ Barrier!
The purple-clad young man was none other than Duan Ling Tian.
Nine Dragons’ Barrier was the only defensive martial skill in the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique that Duan Ling Tian cultivated. Although it was only at the Rudiments Stage, it was enough to defend against an ordinary Martial Monarch’s attack.
“You’re all dead!” Duan Ling Tian spoke slowly with no emotion in his voice as his eyes gleamed coldly.
As soon as Duan Ling Tian spoke, Xiong Quan charged forward in anger.
Everyone, including the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader, turned around in an attempt to escape.
However, would they be able to escape?
In just an instant, the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader was killed by Xiong Quan. He had lost his will to fight after witnessing how terrifying Duan Ling Tian was.
There were no exceptions, everyone was killed!
“This Gold-Devouring Organization has made a fortune at the Rue Shui Riverside for so many years… I bet they must have collected many high-grade Origin Stones.” Duan Ling Tian lifted his arm and took the Gold-Devouring Organization’s leader’s Spatial Ring away.
