The air-transportation spirit artifact shook violently and froze in the air. It was as if it was grabbed by an invisible hand and could not move. No matter what Luo Cheng did, it still remained motionless in the air.
“Strange, it seems like there’s some kind of a barrier.”
Luo Cheng was covered in sweat. Even with his Saint Stage cultivation, he was unable to do anything.
And for some reason, he even felt frightened.
Hearing this, Luo Shan spread out his spirit sense again, but he still did not detect any spirit energy fluctuations. It was simply inconceivable.
Just as he was puzzled, a voice sounded faintly. “There’s no need to search for me. I’m here.”
Everyone looked in the direction of the voice and only now realized that a youth in snow-white clothes was inside the air-transportation spirit artifact. He had the aura of a dragon or a phoenix, and he looked like an immortal that had descended to the mortal world. There was not a trace of dust on his body.
Seeing this, the two Legendary Stage experts were shocked and pointed at Qin Jue as they screamed.
“Mm? The two of you are here again.” Qin Jue said with interest.
Being stared at by Qin Jue, the two of them couldn’t help but shudder and almost couldn’t control themselves from kneeling on the ground and begging for mercy.
However, when they recalled that the First Elder beside them was a Grand Saint Stage expert, the two of them immediately summoned their courage and said, “Hmph, you’re dead meat for sure now that the First Elder has come personally!”
Qin Jue was stunned for a moment before turning to look at Luo Shan. “You’re the First Elder of the Pure Yang Sacred Land?”
Luo Shan did not answer but revealed a vigilant expression.
Because from beginning to end, he hadn’t been able to sense Qin Jue’s existence!
Even though Qin Jue was standing in front of him at this moment, Luo Shan still had an illusory feeling, as if Qin Jue didn’t belong to this world.
Secret technique? Martial technique?
Or was it some special ability?
Luo Shan had never encountered such a situation, so he was being very cautious.
Seeing that Luo Shan was silent, Qin Jue simply ignored him and said to Luo Xun, “You should be Luo Weiwei’s father, right? It took you long enough to show yourself.”
Although Luo Weiwei looked more like her mother, she still looked somewhat similar to Luo Xun, so Qin Jue could tell at a glance.
“You know my daughter?”
Luo Xun was stunned.
However, on second thought, since the other party could appear silently in the air-transportation spirit artifact, it was evident that his strength was extraordinary.
Coupled with what Luo Cheng said before, could this youth be the Saint Stage expert who killed Luo Feng and the others?
No, if he was a Saint Stage expert, then he would have been able to see through his cultivation. Unless… Unless Qin Jue had used some secret technique to hide his aura.
But what kind of secret technique could allow him to silently approach so many of them so easily?
And based on the First Elder’s reaction, it seemed that even the First Elder failed to notice.
“Of course.” Qin Jue smiled.
Luo Xun suddenly bowed and cupped his fists, his voice filled with gratitude.
Qin Jue was stunned and somewhat puzzled.
“Thank you, Brother, for not letting my daughter be captured by this old man!”
Luo Xun’s gaze was as sharp as a blade as he stared at Luo Cheng.
Luo Cheng, who was already injured, was immediately frightened and retreated behind Luo Shan, afraid that Luo Xun would suddenly rush up and punch him.
Because it was the First Elder who took action personally this time, Luo Cheng did not bring anyone else with him. Along with the other two Legendary Stage experts, there were only five people in total.
If Luo Xun suddenly attacked, Luo Cheng might very well be the first to get severely injured. Therefore, how could he not be afraid?
“Luo Xun, what are you trying to do?” Luo Shan chided.
“First Elder, I don’t want to become enemies with the Sacred Land, but I also hope that you will leave my daughter alone.” Taking a deep breath, Luo Xun said coldly.
Actually, during the time that he wasn’t imprisoned, Luo Xun had always been secretly paying attention to Luo Weiwei.
However, in order not to arouse the Elders Guild’s suspicion, Luo Xun never dared to leave the Pure Yang Sacred Land. He could only send some trusted aides to secretly investigate. Through these investigations, he had also found out about Luo Weiwei’s mother’s death as well as Luo Weiwei’s induction into the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
Even though he felt extremely guilty, Luo Xun could only spy on his daughter secretly and pretend that he didn’t know anything.
Now, the anger that he had suppressed for many years finally exploded. No matter what, he would absolutely not allow any harm to come to his daughter!
Even if it meant falling out with the other experts of the Pure Yang Sacred Land!
“And if I say no?”
The middle-aged man’s eyes narrowed as they flickered with a dangerous light.
“Then you will have to do it over my dead body!” Luo Xun said firmly.
“Alright, very well!”
Luo Shan was furious. “How dare you provoke us for a bastard child!”
“Looks like the previous ten years of confinement didn’t work on you. In that case, when I flatten this place, I’ll capture you and imprison you for another hundred years. That should be enough time for you to properly reflect on yourself!”
No matter what, Luo Xun was still the previous holy son of the Pure Yang Sacred Land. Both his cultivation talent and status were extremely impressive and he was not to be underestimated. Thus, it was naturally impossible for Luo Shan to just kill him. At most, Luo Shan could only imprison Luo Xun.
However, facing Luo Shan’s threat, Luo Xun did not back down. He knew very well how pedantic these old fellows were and that they would do anything to ensure the purity of their bloodline.
In the history of the Pure Yang Sacred Land, there had been similar situations before.
According to Luo Xun’s knowledge, these descendants of “mixed blood” would usually be refined into blood essence and would be given to the other “pure-blooded’ clansmen to increase their cultivation talent.
Luo Xun was not planning on letting his daughter be refined into blood essence?
On the other hand, Qin Jue also understood what was going on.
Two days ago, those Pure Yang Sacred Land cultivators that arrived indeed had other plans and were obviously not sent by Luo Weiwei’s father.
Fortunately, Qin Jue didn’t hand Luo Weiwei over that day. Otherwise, the consequences would have been unthinkable.
“Friend, I have a request.” Luo Xun transmitted his voice.
“What is it?”
“I’ll try my best to hold the First Elder and the others back. I hope you can leave this place as soon as possible with my daughter. The further you run, the better!”
Luo Xun knew very well how powerful Luo Shan was, so he planned to stall the other party and let Qin Jue escape with Luo Weiwei. Moreover, Luo Shan wouldn’t dare to kill him anyway.
With the concealment ability Qin Jue had just displayed, Luo Xun believed this plan would work since even Luo Shan would have a hard time discovering him.
“Are you sure?”
Luo Xun gritted his teeth and said, “Also, help me tell Weiwei that Father has wronged her.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Luo Xun was about to rush up when a hand suddenly placed on his shoulder, causing him to be instantly frozen and unable to move.
“You should say this to her yourself.”
Without waiting for Luo Xun to react, Qin Jue had already walked forward and said, “Then do you plan on coming one by one or coming together?”
“How dare you!”
Luo Cheng clearly did not realize the seriousness of the problem. He hid behind Luo Shan and shouted, “You killed the experts of our sacred land and even spoke arrogantly. Your crimes are unforgivable. Prepare to die!”
“Oh? Then I’ll start with you.”
Qin Jue couldn’t be bothered to waste his breath. With a grab of his hand, Luo Cheng, who was originally hiding behind Luo Shan, immediately passed through the space and appeared in front of him.
In an instant, Luo Cheng felt as if he had fallen into an ice cave. What kind of technique was this?
With a dull bang, Luo Cheng’s head exploded with a bang, and his Essence Soul was destroyed. Until his death, he still did not understand what was going on.
Since the other party had already declared that he would flatten this place, Qin Jue could no longer show mercy?
