“Submit or die!” Wei Longtao stood in the main hall with an overbearing and insufferably arrogant expression.
As soon as he finished speaking, the three elders from the Wei Clan immediately took a step forward and erupted with terrifying auras of spirit energy that shot into the sky!
Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying were both shocked. One had to know that even the Xuanyi Mountain Sect only had two Heaven Stage experts, yet the Wei Clan had actually dispatched three at once!
No, including Wei Longtao, there were four of them!
Only now did the two of them understand just how powerful the so-called Seven Great Clans were.
It was called the Heaven Stage because their abilities would no longer be limited to the physical body, and they could control the spirit energy between the heavens and the earth. Mu Chen was able to escape from the meteorite because he could mobilize the spirit energy of the heavens and the earth in time to create a spirit-energy shield, enabling him to barely survive.
In other words, it was utterly impossible for multiple Earth Stage cultivators to rely on their numbers to bridge the gap between them and the Heaven Stage experts. Otherwise, why would Wei Longtao so brazenly charge into the Xuanyi Mountain Sect?
“Really?” Bai Ye remained calm and collected, without the slightest hint of panic.
In fact, with the current strength of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, it was simply unable to contend with the Wei Clan. However, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had a trump card: Qin Jue.
Others might not know, but as Qin Jue’s senior brother, Bai Ye knew that Qin Jue’s true strength was absolutely not as simple as Earth Stage or Heaven Stage.
This was also the main reason why Bai Ye wasn’t afraid after learning about the alliance between the Stargate Sect and the Wei Clan.
It was worth mentioning that Bai Ye’s personality was actually very similar to Qin Jue’s. After he became the sect master of Xuanyi Mountain Sect, he never expanded the sect nor invaded other forces. He was content with just staying in this area.
However, if other forces were to invade Xuanyi Mountain Sect, Bai Ye would definitely not back down even if the other party was one of the Seven Great Clans.
Seeing this, Wei Longtao’s killing intent soared as he shouted coldly, “Wei Zheng!”
“Yes!” the elder with the strongest aura among the three immediately bowed and replied.
“Since they’re unwilling to submit, let them die.”
“Yes!” Wei Zheng grinned and looked at Bai Ye. “Sect Master Bai, apologies.”
After he finished talking, Wei Zheng’s figure turned from solid to illusory as he instantly disappeared from where he stood!
Hurricanes immediately arose in the hall, blowing so hard that people could barely open their eyes. The solid glass floor was suddenly covered in cracks that spread outwards.
In the next second, Bai Ye and Wei Zheng appeared at the center of the hall, each backing off from the other’s impact.
“Peak Heaven Stage?” Wei Zheng was slightly surprised. He never thought that there would be such an expert in such a remote place.
Bai Ye smiled and remained silent.
No matter what, he was still the second strongest person in this area. He was only half a step away from becoming a Martial Dao Supreme Stage cultivator. Even Song Yun was always suppressed by him when he was still alive. How could he be defeated so easily?
“Interesting,” Wei Longtao said curiously. “Looks like I underestimated you. But it’s alright— Wei Jia, Wei Yi!”
The other two Wei Clan elders immediately surrounded Bai Ye, clearly planning to bully him with numbers.
“Despicable!” Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying gritted their teeth as they cursed, but there was nothing they could do. After all, no one had set a rule that they had to fight one-on-one, especially when the other party had the absolute advantage.
“Don’t forget about me!” The First Elder leaped up, his hair and beard fluttering, and landed lightly beside Bai Ye, confronting the three Wei Clan elders.
“Old Wang, it’s been a while since we’ve exercised these old bones of ours,” Bai Ye said casually.
“It could be the last time.” The First Elder smiled bitterly.
“Don’t worry, it won’t be,” Bai Ye said meaningfully.
“I hope so.” The First Elder sighed.
“Oh right, this is a healing pill that I’ve refined. If you get injured later, you can take it.”
As if recalling something, Bai Ye took out a medicinal pill from his storage ring and tossed it to the First Elder.
First Elder: “…”
Are you trying to intentionally harm me?
“Forget it, you should keep it for yourself.” First Elder’s face darkened as he hurriedly threw the medicinal pill back.
What a joke. If he really ate this pill, he probably would die without even knowing the exact cause. He still remembered Wu Ying’s miserable appearance after eating one of Bai Ye’s pills.
“Tch, fine. I’ll give it to someone who appreciates my good intentions.” Bai Ye pursed his lips in displeasure.
First Elder: “…”
“Enough!” Wei Zheng interrupted the two of them and said coldly, “Do you think you can defeat us? With just the two of you?!”
With Wei Zheng’s peak Heaven Stage strength, he had always had a high status, even in the Wei Clan. When had he ever been looked down upon like this? How could he tolerate this?!
“How will we know if we don’t try?” Bai Ye thought otherwise.
Wei Zheng: “…”
“Alright, then let me see what kind of divine technique Sect Master Bai has to protect himself!” Taking a deep breath, Wei Zheng circulated his spirit energy, and his aura continued to rise, causing the entire hall to tremble slightly.
“Wait!” Bai Ye suddenly spoke.
“What now?” Wei Zheng felt suffocated. The spirit energy he had just activated almost got stuck, which would’ve caused a backlash.
“This is the main hall of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Can we fight outside?” Bai Ye said seriously.
These decorations were very expensive. What if they were broken?
Wei Zheng: “…”
“Xuanyi Mountain Sect will no longer exist after today. So what if we destroy this place?” suppressing the anger in his heart, Wei Zheng said impatiently.
“Shut up!” Wei Zheng could no longer hold it in and punched out, sending out boundless spirit energy!
Terrifying energy ripples exploded outwards. With the great hall as the center, they rapidly spread outwards, forming a ring of visible airflow that stretched out to 15 kilometers away.
Sensing this airflow, all the members of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect simultaneously looked towards the main hall on the mountain peak. “What a powerful spirit energy fluctuation! What happened there?” they wondered.
With another loud bang, both sides continued fighting in the main hall. Among them, Bai Ye had to take on two of the Wei Clan elders. He was on par with Wei Zheng and Wei Jia, but it was a bit strenuous for him to keep up.
On the other side, the First Elder was equally matched with Wei Yi. He even had the upper hand.
Upon seeing this sight, Wei Longtao’s face darkened. Three esteemed elders of the Wei Clan actually couldn’t take down two Heaven Stage experts from a backwater faction!
Right at this moment, a wave of spirit energy suddenly swept over, and Wei Longtao stretched out his hand to block it. However, Wei Ling who was sitting on the wheelchair next to him wasn’t so lucky and was directly blasted flying by the spirit energy. He spat out a mouthful of blood and almost fainted.
“Brother!” Wei Longtao was shocked because he’d actually forgotten about Wei Ling!
He hurriedly rushed over to help Wei Ling up as he asked worriedly, “Brother, are you alright? Brother!”
At this moment, Wei Ling wanted to cry but had no tears to shed.
I was fine staying in the Stargate Sect, so why did you have to bring me along? If you’ve brought me here, you should at least be responsible and look after me. If not for the fact that I had consumed the Great Essence Enhancing Pill and had recovered from my injuries, I would have died from that surge of spirit energy! Wei Ling thought to himself.
“I’m fine…” In the end, Wei Ling shook his head and said with difficulty, “Brother, why don’t you send me back to the Cloud Piercing Spirit Ship first?”
“No!” Wei Longtao immediately denied his request. “That’s too dangerous. You’ll only be safe if you stay by my side.”
Wei Ling: “???”
