“You’re courting death!”
Sixth Elder’s eyes were bloodshot as his anger soared.
He had never expected that someone would remove all his Essence Souls in such a short period of time.
One had to know that the entire Soul Tower was maintained by these Essence Souls. Once it disappeared, the Soul Tower would stop operating.
As expected, before he could finish his sentence, the Soul Tower suddenly shook three times, emitting an ear-piercing bang, as if it would collapse at any moment.
Qin Jue raised his head slightly. In his field of vision, the Soul Tower seemed to be connected to another world, but after he transcended those Essence Souls, the connection directly broke.
What was this Spirit Clan up to?
There were a total of thirty-six soul orbs. Each soul orb collected hundreds of thousands of Essence Souls, which added up to more than ten million. The Spirit Clan clearly wanted to use these Essence Souls to do some shady things.
On the other side, the aura of the Sixth Elder’s body rose rapidly. His domain covered the sky and the earth as it rushed towards Qin Jue. He was actually a Saint Stage expert!
Crack! Crack! Crack!
Unexpectedly, when the Sixth Elder’s seemingly terrifying domain landed on Qin Jue, it instantly shattered like an egg hitting a rock!
The intense backlash caused the sixth elder to cough up blood and retreat, his face as pale as paper.
On the other hand, not only was Qin Jue standing in place unscathed, but he even had a calm expression.
“How is this possible…”
This was Sixth Elder’s last thought before he fainted.
“No matter what they intended to do, there’s no need for this Soul Tower to exist anymore.”
Qin Jue’s figure flashed again and appeared above the Soul Tower, his palm landing lightly.
The ground shook as countless rocks flew out, as if the end of the world had arrived.
After a long while, a huge palm print appeared below Qin Jue. As for the Soul Tower, it had long turned into dust along with the Spirit Clan experts inside.
Qin Jue wouldn’t show any mercy to these fellows who collected Essence Souls.
This wasn’t a matter of being nosy, but anyone who knew what Qin Jue knew would most likely lend a hand. Moreover, Qin Jue was doing this to save Yan Xiu.
At the same time, because the Soul Tower had been destroyed, the 35 soul orbs scattered throughout the Sacred Land of the Central Continent also exploded.
These soul orbs were strongly connected to the Soul Tower. Now that the Soul Tower had been destroyed, it was naturally impossible for the soul orbs to continue existing. All that was left were the dumbfounded members of the Spirit Clan, who did not understand what was going on.
The commotion here quickly attracted the attention of the other Spirit Clan experts, and in an instant, countless figures flew out from the distant palaces and pavilions. It was difficult to imagine that such an immortal paradise actually had such an evil side.
“I think something happened at the Soul Tower.”
“Could there be a problem with the Soul Tower?”
“Impossible. Sixth Elder has always been overseeing things over there.”
Everyone was discussing spiritedly, full of doubts.
These cultivators were all dressed in blood armor, and they seemed to be guards of the Spirit Clan. Furthermore, all of their cultivations had reached the Heaven Stage or above.
However, when they saw the tens of thousands of meters large palm print on the ground instead of the Soul Tower, they were all stunned.
What was going on?
The leader was a sinister man. His expression changed slightly as he said in disbelief, “Where’s the Soul Tower?”
One had to know that the Soul Tower was made of black gold meteoric iron and was considered to be indestructible. It was enough to withstand the full-power attack of a Saint Stage expert. With the Sixth Elder holding down the fort, it could be said that nothing would go wrong.
But where… Where did the Soul Tower go?
That was something that the Spirit Clan had spent thousands of years planning and painstakingly designed. Once it was destroyed, all their efforts would be for naught!
“Look, there’s someone over there!”
An expert from the Spirit Clan suddenly pointed into the sky and shouted.
Their attention was all on the destroyed Soul Tower just now, so they did not notice that there was a person above their heads.
“Who is it?!”
The sinister man was shocked. He didn’t sense Qin Jue’s existence at all.
Qin Jue couldn’t be bothered with this. He flew straight towards the Spirit Clan, preparing to plunder a few high-level cultivation techniques.
“Stop! Who are you? What did you do to the Soul Tower?”
The sinister man blocked in front of Qin Jue, emitting a strong killing intent.
The other Spirit Clan experts quickly approached and surrounded Qin Jue, taking out their weapons and getting ready.
Hearing this, Qin Jue rolled his eyes speechlessly. Were these guys idiots? Couldn’t they tell that he was the one who destroyed the Soul Tower?
Since the other party wanted to die, Qin Jue had no choice but to reluctantly help them.
Golden light bloomed like a candle flame in the night. At first, it was only the size of a fist and was very inconspicuous, but it quickly grew at an unbelievable speed. From afar, it looked like a blazing sun!
Before the sinister man and the many Spirit Clan experts could react, they were engulfed by the golden light.
Ling Zhan, who was cultivating, was awakened by a loud bang. He opened his eyes in astonishment and rushed out of the secret room to look into the distance.
Over there, a golden sun rose, causing all living beings to go silent.
It wasn’t just Ling Zhan. At this moment, all the experts above the Supreme Stage, regardless of whether they were in seclusion or cultivating, had all been alarmed. If it was only a group of guards that had been alarmed just now, then even the elders were being alarmed now.
The golden light came and went quickly. In a few breaths of time, it quickly shrunk and disappeared.
“Didn’t Lingjie already bring people over?”
“What powerful spirit energy fluctuations.”
“No! Lingjie’s aura has disappeared.”
“Enemy attack! Enemy attack!”
Perhaps it was because no enemy had ever attacked the Spirit Clan before, but it took these Spirit Clan experts a long time to react. At this moment, a white-haired old man flew out first at an incomparably fast speed.
First Elder :”…”
Seeing the white-haired old man, everyone’s expressions changed greatly. They did not expect that even the First Elder was alarmed.
When Ling Zhan arrived at the area where the golden light was, he only saw a circular pit that was a hundred meters deep. Even the palm print from before was covered.
Another elder followed closely behind and appeared beside Ling Zhan.
“What… What happened here? Where’s the Soul Tower?”
The other higher-ups of the Spirit Clan also rushed over with shocked expressions.
“Sixth Brother’s aura has disappeared.”
Ling Zhan said expressionlessly.
Everyone fell silent when they heard this. Wasn’t the Sixth Elder a Saint Stage expert?
How was this possible?
However, no matter how they searched with their spirit senses, they could not find the Sixth Elder. Even his aura had disappeared completely. He was clearly dead.
“Are we being targeted by one of the Sacred Lands?”
One of the elders said bitterly.
In the entire Spirit Central World, other than the Sacred Masters of the Eight Great Sacred Lands, no one else could kill a Saint Stage expert in such a short period of time without them noticing.
Ling Zhan sighed and analyzed seriously, “Looks like our plan has been discovered by a Sacred Master. However, the other party probably doesn’t know the exact situation, so this is probably only a warning. If we continue to persist, the Soul Tower won’t be the only one that will be destroyed next time.”
“Then what should we do?” The other elders were very nervous.
No one knew the function of the Soul Tower better than them. Now that the Soul Tower was destroyed, they were at a loss.
Suddenly a voice said faintly:
“Is everyone here?”
