Chapter 1154: Gathering at the Summit
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The original Yin Peak, currently known as Ling Tian Peak, was a snow-capped peak all year round. The peak was steep, and the snow on top looked like a layer of silver from a distance.
Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu took the lead with the Gold Thug and Xiong Quan closely following them. The four of them quickly arrived at the summit of Ling Tian Peak.
Along the way, it was apparent that Ling Tian Peak was not peaceful.
Women in white were standing everywhere in groups of three to five and kept discussing as they glanced nervously at the burning peak from a distance.
“Yang Peak has been burning for a day.”
“I heard that Yang Peak is now covered with lava. The place for the disciples of Yang Peak to cultivate has been completely destroyed.”
“What about the disciples of Yang Peak after that? Will they come and fight for a place for cultivation on Yin Peak?”
These white-clad women were originally the disciples of Yin Peak of the Yin Yang Sect. All of them were discussing among themselves, afraid that the disciples of Yang Peak would come and snatch their cultivation place on Yin Peak.
For now, they still did not know that the Yin Yang Sect had ceased to exist and had been replaced by the Ling Tian Sect.
Now, they were disciples of the Ling Tian Sect and the peak they were situated at, originally called Yin Peak, had been renamed as Ling Tian Peak in accordance to the instructions of the current Sect Leader of the Ling Tian Sect!
Duan Ling Tian and the three others quickly arrived at the summit of Yin Peak. They stood in the air the clouds as if they were waiting for something.
Time passed quietly.
Half an hour later.
“They’re still haven’t arrived?” The Gold Thug couldn’t help but frown as he gazed in the direction of the burning peak from a distance. “How inefficient can the three of them be? They dared to let Master wait for such a long time!”
After the Gold Thug finished his sentence, Duan Ling Tian’s face brightened as if he had noticed something. “Coming.”
Soon after that, Feng Tian Wu, the Gold Thug, and Xiong Quan could see that a group of people was coming from the direction of the burning peak. Three persons led these people.
Although they were far away, they could still see it clearly with their extraordinary eyesight due to the existence of their Martial Monarch Stage.
“I’m at the summit,” Duan Ling Tian spoke promptly when he saw the group of people stop mid-air outside of Ling Tian Peak as if they did not know where to go.
Duan Ling Tian’s voice contained Origin Energy, and therefore, even though it did not seem to be loud, everyone around Ling Tian Peak could hear it clearly.
“Such strong cultivation base! Is he really at the summit?”
“If he’s really talking from the summit, judging by our location, I think everyone around Yin Peak would’ve heard his voice.”
Duan Ling Tian’s voice shocked several of the female disciples from Yin Peak.
“I’m the Guardian Elder of Yang Peak, Yun Gang. Everyone from Yin Peak, listen up! Everyone must gather at the summit of Yin Peak. Those who aren’t present within half an hour will be driven out of the sect regardless of status nor position!” While a group of female disciples from Yin Peak was shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s voice, another voice rang into everyone’s ears.
“Those who fail to reach the summit within half an hour will be driven out of the sect?”
“It is indeed the voice of Elder Yun of the Yang Peak!”
“Elder Yun is the Guardian Elder of Yang Peak whose strength is no weaker than both of the Peak Masters of the Yin Yang Sect. In addition to that, he’s the Junior Uncle of the Peak Master of Yang Peak who was highly respected by the latter… We’d better hurry up and go to the summit since he asked.”
“Move! Let’s go to the summit! I don’t know what’s going on today that they’d ask us all to gather at the summit.”
“If I’m not mistaken, it’s probably to announce that the disciples of Yang Peak will be included in our Yin Peak… After all, they’re now homeless.”
After all of the female disciples of Yin Peak heard Yun Gang’s voice, they did not dare to hesitate and rushed to the summit one after another.
“After something like that has happened to the Yang Peak, the person who leads us should be Peak Master Yang Hong. Why did Elder Yun come personally?”
“Usually, Elder Yun isn’t such a high-profile person.”
A lot of Elders of Yin Peak also heard Yun Gang’s voice. Compared to the female disciples of Yin Peak, they knew better about Yun Gang’s lofty status in the Yin Yang Sect.
Therefore, they did not dare to delay and headed to the summit in the first instance.
Halfway up the hill, several figures were standing in the air. They were females; some were old women while some were middle-aged.
A figure shot out from halfway uphill, then the figures standing in the air recovered from their shock. They bowed and saluted at the incoming person. “Vice Peak Master Luo.”
The person who had appeared before them was an elegant, graceful woman clad in a white robe with silver hems. When she stood there, she projected a powerful aura.
It was the Vice Peak Master of Yin Peak, Luo Ping!
“Mm.” Facing their salute, Luo Ping nodded lightly. However, there was a bit of confusion between her eyebrows.
“Vice Peak Master Luo, did Elder Yun ask all of us to go to the summit to announce to us about people from Yang Peak joining our Yin Peak?” An old woman looked at Luo Ping and asked.
“I also don’t know.” Luo Ping shook her head.
“If they really wanted to come to Yin Peak, how would we have so many cultivation spots to accommodate them?” A middle-aged woman said with a gloomy expression.
“If there isn’t enough place for cultivation, they can discover on their own… We’re of the same line in the Yin Yang Sect. We can’t not do anything to save them! Besides, we’ll discuss it further when we arrive at the summit.” After Luo Ping finished talking, she led the way and headed towards the summit.
“Sigh… Nowadays, our Yin Peak is left with Vice Peak Master Luo to manage it alone. Compared with Yang Peak which has a Peak Master, a Guardian Elder, and two Vice Peak Masters, Yin Peak is absolutely at a disadvantage.” The few of them caught up with Luo Ping. However, some of them could not help but shake their heads and sigh.
“It seems like the people from Yang Peak joining Yin Peak today is a matter of course which is inevitable,” someone else added.
The original Yin Peak summit which was the current Ling Tian Peak summit was soon filled with people, and the number of people was continually increasing. It was quickly packed with a dense crowd.
“These… These are all our Ling Tian Sect people?” Xiong Quan’s eyes gleamed as he looked at the packed crowd before him.
The Sect Leader of Ling Tian Sect was his Young Master, which was why he had positioned himself as one of the members of Ling Tian Sect.
The first group of people who appeared on Ling Tian Peak’s summit was a group of women in white. These women were of different ages; there were old women, middle-aged women, youthful women, and even some young girls.
They were originally disciples of Yin Peak of the Yin Yang Sect.
“That Yun Gang can get things done after all.” Having witnessed Yun Gang move all of the female disciples of Ling Tian Peak with just a single phrase, Duan Ling Tian was very satisfied with his efficiency.
Shortly after as the number of people kept growing at the summit of Ling Tian Peak, Yun Gang, You Ping, and You An arrived at the summit with a mighty group of Yang Peak disciples.
Many of the disciples of Yang Peak were downcast. Their cultivation place was gone.
“It’s Elder Yun!” Yun Gang’s appearance caused a commotion. After all, he was the Guardian Elder of Yang Peak whose strength was no weaker than the Peak Master of Yang Peak. Many female disciples from Yin Peak were excited to see him as if they were on fire.
“Both of the Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak are here too… Why don’t we see the Peak Master of Yang Peak, Yang Hong?” After a while, some of them looked around and felt puzzled because they could not find Yang Hong.
“Yes, where’s Peak Master Yang Hong? Why didn’t he come?” Soon, someone else questioned.
“Not only is Peak Master Yang Hong absent but even his son, Yang Fei, isn’t around too… Besides, Yang Xue, Junior Sister Li Fei, and Ke’Er are also nowhere to be found.”
“It’s been almost half an hour… According to Elder Yun, they’ll be driven out of the Sect if they’re still not here.”
“Hng! It would be to everyone’s satisfaction if Yang Hong and his son were driven out of the sect! They took advantage of the time when Peak Master and Vice Peak Master Hua were in closed-door cultivation to heal their injuries, and they threatened Junior Sister Ke’Er with Junior Sister Li Fei… Only they can do that.”
“We still haven’t seen Senior Sister Yang Xue.”
A group of female disciples from Yin Peak was discussing among themselves, and rather quickly, someone realized that Yang Hong and his son along with Yang Xue, Li Fei, and Ke’Er were still absent.
“Elder Yun, Vice Peak Masters You.” Soon, a neutral voice that did not contain any emotion was heard, catching the attention of most of those present.
An elegant woman was leading a group of old and middle-aged women. She saw the three persons who stood in front of the disciples of Yang Peak at a distance and greeted them.
“Vice Peak Master Luo.” The eyes of Yun Gang and the two others flickered when they saw the woman.
The woman before them was the highest person-in-charge of Yin Peak, Vice Peak Master of Yin Peak’, Luo Ping.
“Elder Yun, where’s Peak Master of Yang Peak?” Luo Ping looked at Yun Gang and asked bluntly. There was a glint in her eyes as coldness flashed in their depths.
“Yang Peak Master is dead,” Yun Gang said.
As soon as Yun Gang finished his statement, not only were Luo Ping and the Yin Peak Elders behind her were dumbstruck. In fact, even the rest of the people from Yin Peak and the group of people from Yang Peak behind Yun Gang and the You brothers were dumbstruck too.
Yang Peak Master was dead?
The Peak Master of Yang Peak from the Yin Yang Sect, one of the four strongest Martial Monarch powerhouses of the Yin Yang Sect was dead?
“Elder Yun, you’re not kidding me, are you? Even though the Yang Peak was covered with lava, it shouldn’t be hard for Peak Master Yang to escape with his cultivation base!” Luo Ping looked at Yun Gang and asked. She apparently did not believe that the Peak Master of Yang Peak, Yang Hong, was dead.
At once, everyone from Yin Peak also stared at Yun Gang.
As for those from Yang Peak, everyone apart from the two Vice Peak Masters of Yang Peak, You Ping and You An, also looked at Yun Gang. All of them wanted to hear Yun Gang’s reply.
Under everyone’s watchful eyes, Yun Gang said calmly, “The death of our Peak Master of Yang Peak has nothing to do with the lava… He was killed by someone else.”
Was he killed?
After Yun Gang said that, the faces of everyone present changed apart from Yun Gang himself, the You brothers beside him, Duan Ling Tian and the three others who were hidden above the clouds.
The Peak Master of Yang Peak, Yang Hong, was one of the four strongest beings that existed in the Yin Yang Sect.
In terms of strength, no one in Yin Yang Sect would be able to kill him.
Now, that had been tested and proven wrong.
Did that mean the person who killed him was stronger than all the powerhouses in the Yin Yang Sect?
“Who killed him?” Luo Ping asked with a dumbstruck expression as soon as she recovered.
