Combine the sects?
Combine with our sect?
Everyone from the Seven Star Sword Sect that was atop the peak of Dubhe Peak had finally wrapped their heads around the matter when the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader finished speaking.
So it turned out that this was what the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader meant.
“Combine the sects?” Linghu Jin Hong frowned. “Sect Leaders, may I know why all of you suddenly want to combine your sects…. And may I know until what extent will this combining be?”
The Origin Convergence Sect’s Leader took over. “Sect Leader Linghu, the so called combination of sects is to completely combine all of our great sects… Once the Seven Star Sword Sect combines with our three great sects, our four sects will share all cultivation resources, including cultivation methods, medicinal pills, spirit weapons, etc. Amongst these includes the Sect Guarding Martial Skills!”
“Moreover, from today onwards, the Seven Star Sword Sect, Demonic Lotusblade Sect, Origin Convergence Sect, and Snow Moon Sect, will cease to exist… Our four sects won’t be divided by sects any longer and be uniformly called the Azure Forest Quad-Sect.”
Including the Sect Guarding Martial Skills?
The Seven Star Sword Sect will cease to exist?
Lu Yuan’s words caused Linghu Jin Hong’s face to become bleak. “Sect Leader Lu Yuan, I’m afraid this won’t do… The Seven Star Sword Sect was passed down from the Founding Ancestor of my Seven Star Sword Sect, and its meaning is extraordinary! If I were to combine the Seven Star Sword Sect with all of you, how would I answer to all the ancestors of my Seven Star Sword Sect?”
“So, my Seven Star Sword Sect has no objection if your three sects want to combine with each other… But, it’s absolutely impossible that my Seven Star Sword Sect will agree to combine sects with all of you!”
Linghu Jin Hong’s tone was resolute and decisive.
“Right, don’t combine sects!”
“Why should we combine sects? Our Seven Star Sword Sect is the number one sect in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, the one and only!”
“Exactly! That day, I came here because of the reputation of the Seven Star Sword Sect as the number one sect in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom. If the Seven Star Sword Sect were to combine with the other sects, then what’s the point of me joining the Seven Star Sword Sect?”
The crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect disciples discussed animatedly and were all unwilling to combine sects.
“Sect Leaders, all of you have seen it… My Seven Star Sword Sect isn’t suitable to combine sects.” Linghu Jin Hong looked at the three great sects with a calm gaze as he spoke slowly.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian noticed that when Linghu Jin Hong made his decision, the three sect leaders looked at each other and seemed to not be surprised.
However, his acute Spiritual Force noticed that killing intent that faintly arose from the bodies of the three great sect leaders at the first possible moment.
“Not good!” Duan Ling Tian’s face went grim and he hurriedly sent a voice transmission to Linghu Jin Hong. “Sect Leader, I’m afraid these three sect leaders have come with bad intentions!”
Linghu Jin Hong didn’t even have the chance to react yet.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Three incomparably swift howls in the wind abruptly tore through the sky.
An enormous Grand Roc was in the lead, its wings that could cover the sky were spread open as it arrived at the peak of Dubhe Peak in the blink of an eye before flying in circles, and its originally muddy eyes emitted a frightful sheen as it stared fixedly at the Sect Guarding Demon Beasts of the three great sects.
“Elder Peng!” Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief when he saw the enormous Grand Roc, and at the same time, his Spiritual Force flashed out.
At the first possible moment, he’s examined Elder Peng’s cultivation.
Sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage!
Elder Peng’s strength was even stronger that the three Sect Guarding Demon Beasts of the three great sects.
“Little fellow, your Spiritual Force has improved again… Even I was nearly unable to notice you.” Right at this moment, an aged voice sounded in by Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that this was the voice of Elder Peng.
“Elder Peng, I never expected I was still noticed by you.” Duan Ling Tian was shocked in his heart.
After all, he wasn’t noticed when he used his Spiritual Force to examine the cultivations of the various Sect Leaders and their Sect Guardian Demon Beasts.
At this moment, he was instead noticed by Elder Peng, and it was sufficient to display that Elder Peng wasn’t simple.
“My soul is innately stronger than ordinary demon beasts as there’s a trace of the Goldwing Grand Roc’s bloodline in my body.” Elder Peng’s voice transmission continued to enter into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Goldwing Grand Roc?
Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but search the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor when he heard Elder Peng.
In next to no time, he found records related to the Goldwing Grand Roc in the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor.
The Goldwing Grand Roc was a formidable demon beast that possessed a natural talent that wasn’t inferior to the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse, and once they matured, they were able to become Demon Emperor’s that possessed strength that shook the heavens and the earth.
“I really never imagined that Elder Peng would actually possess the bloodline of a Goldwing Grand Roc… Even if it’s only a trace, it’s sufficient to allow Elder Peng to far surpass ordinary demon beasts!” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“Little Gold, do you know of the Goldwing Grand Roc?” Duan Ling Tian curiously asked the little gold mouse beneath his sleeve via voice transmission.
“Goldwing Grand Roc?” The little gold mouse’s voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears. “There seems to be records of this type of demon beast within the inherited memories I’ve awoken… The Goldwing Grand Roc ought to be a descendant of a Saint Beast like us Jade-eyed Heavenly Mice, it’s adept in speed. In terms of speed, there are extremely few demon beasts that are able to compare with the Goldwing Grand Roc family.”
Another descendant of Saint Beasts?
Duan Ling Tian was shocked in his heart.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze descended the other two people that had appeared at practically the same instant that Elder Peng appeared.
These were two old men.
One of the old men wore azure clothed, and his body emitted strands of profound aura of the wind as he stood in the sky.
“It’s wind! Wind Concept!” Duan Ling Tian was shocked inwardly.
Subsequently, his gaze descended onto the other old man.
This old man wore grey clothes, and as he stood there, his entire body seemed to have transformed into a sharp sword, and in the area of the sky he stood on, the airflow in the sky flew about as if they were afraid of the sword qi that he emitted.
“What a terrifying Sword Concept!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes squinted.
The Spiritual Force he stretched out had noticed in the first possible moment that the strength of this grey clothed old man surpassed the azure clothed old man.
More importantly, these two old man were both experts at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage!
“Martial Uncle Xuan, Martial Uncle Ming.”
“Elder Xuan, Elder Ming.”
Linghu Jin Hong and all the Seven Star Sword Sect higher-ups respectfully bowed to the two old men.
“Guardian Elders.” Many Seven Star Sword Sect disciples respectfully bowed to the two old men.
“They are the two great Guardian Elders of the Seven Star Sword Sect? Elder Xuan and Elder Ming?” Duan Ling Tian was able to guess the identity of the two old men.
“Since you’ve come, then why conceal yourselves?” Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the grey clothed old man suddenly looked up into the sky and spoke indifferently.
At the same time, Origin Energy skyrocketed on his body, and it actually transformed into an enormous sword that enveloped his entire body….
Subsequently, a terrifying Sword Concept coiled around the enormous sword condensed from Origin Energy, and it emitted a terrifying aura.
Suddenly, the enormous sword charged into the sky, piercing into the cloud and mist high above in the sky, as if it had transformed into a broom that swept away the clouds and mist and the sky.
Accompanied by an enormous bang, six figures cut through the horizon as they descended down.
Three of them seemed to be in a sorry state.
These were six old men that were now divided into three groups that each descended by the side of the three Sect Leaders to stand shoulder to shoulder with them.
They were obviously experts of the three great sects.
“Three people at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage, another three more at the fifth level of the Void Initiation Stage….” After relying on his acute Spiritual Force to detect the cultivations of the six people, Duan Ling Tian’s face was ominous.
Including the three Sect Leaders and the three Sect Guardian Demon Beasts, the total experts on the side of the three great sects including demon beasts were five at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage, six at the fifth level of the Void Initiation Stage, and one at the fourth level of the Void Initiation Stage.
Whereas on the side of the Seven Star Sword Sect, there were only four at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage, one at the fifth level of the Void Initiation Stage, three at the fourth level of the Void Initiation Stage, two at the second level of the Void Initiation Stage, and one at the first level of the Void Initiation Stage.
The difference was too great.
“Elder Xuan, you worthy of being the matchless sword cultivating genius of the Seven Star Sword Sect, you’ve actually comprehended the seventh level Sword Concept! Admirable!” A robust old man in red clothes stood by the side of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader, and his sharp eyes contained seriousness mixed within as he looked at the grey clothed old man in the distance.
“Old Man Huo, I never expected that an old goat like you would come here personally… Looks like all of you plan to take down my Seven Star Sword Sect today.” The grey clothed old man was precisely the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Elder Xuan, and he spoke indifferently.
His tone fully revealed his killing intent and sword qi that shot into the sky!
“Elder Xuan, you’re mistaken.” The blue clothed old man that stood on the Cloudsoar Crane by the Snow Moon Sect’s Leader’s side looked at Elder Xuan, then he said slowly, “So long as the Seven Star Sword Sect is willing to combine with our three great sects today and unite into the Azure Forest Quad-Sect… All of us old one’s will apologize to Elder Xuan and bid our farewells before leaving.”
“Exactly.” The old man that stood by the Origin Convergence Sect’s Leader on the Jadefeather Vulture nodded as well.
“These three old fellows at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage ought to be the strongest Guardian Elders of the three great sects… Looks like they came prepared today! Moreover, none of them have any good intentions.” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze flickered and he was extremely afraid.
The strongest experts of the three great sects were now gathered together, gathered on the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Dubhe Peak.
If it was the experts of any one of the sects, the Seven Star Sword Sect wouldn’t be afraid.
Even if it was the experts of two sects arriving together, the Seven Star Sword Sect might not be unable to fight them.
But now, the experts of three sects had arrived, and to the Seven Star Sword Sect, it was undoubtedly a calamity.
“Impossible!” Elder Xuan’s reply was extremely simple and direct.
The experts of the three great sects weren’t surprised by Elder Xuan’s reply, and they had a carefree expression.
“The three great sects probably had the intention of annihilating the Seven Star Sword Sect… As for the combining of the four great sects, they probably already expected that it was impossible for the Seven Star Sword Sect to agree long ago.” Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts spun when he saw this scene.
How could the Seven Star Sword Sect, the number one sect in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom stoop and combine with the other sects?
A man would rather die than be humiliated!
The Seven Star Sword Sect didn’t permit its honor to be violated.
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian.” Suddenly, Mo Yu arrived by Duan Ling Tian’s side and he had a worried expression. “What exactly do the people from the three great sects want to do?”
Duan Ling Tian shook his head. “They came with bad intentions.”
At the peak of Dubhe Peak, the atmosphere had suddenly became incomparably strange, and the confrontation between the experts of the three great sects and the Seven Star Sword Sect would be triggered at any moment.
