The magnificent hall shook violently for a moment before a huge hole appeared at the top. Bai Ye flew out from the hole and floated in the air.
He was followed by the First Elder Wang Quan and the three Wei Clan elders.
Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying remained below and watched as they didn’t dare to approach. Despite having already stepped into the Earth Stage realm, they still wouldn’t be able to help in any way. If they rashly interfered, they would instead become a burden. Moreover, there was also Wei Longtao beside them.
“What should we do? If this continues, Master and the First Elder will definitely lose,” Wu Ying said anxiously.
Even though the five of them seemed to be evenly matched, there was still Wei Longtao eyeing them covetously from the side. If Wei Longtao, a Heaven Stage cultivator, wanted to join the battle, there was no way for them to stop him.
“Quickly! Let’s notify Uncle-Master and get him to help!” In a moment of desperation, Zhang Jichen had suddenly thought of that uncle-master who, despite being so young, could easily kill an Earth Stage cultivator. Now, they could only place their hopes on him.
“Ah! Right, how could I have forgotten Uncle-Master?!” Wu Ying slapped his forehead and hurriedly ran towards the cliff behind the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
Wei Longtao paid no heed to this. As long as they killed Bai Ye and the First Elder, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect would lose its ability to defend itself, and they would have nothing to fear.
Thinking up to this point, Wei Longtao raised his voice and said, “Elders, please end the battle quickly.”
Wei Longtao absolutely could not tolerate his younger brother getting injured because of the shockwaves of the battle!
Hearing this, the three elders looked at each other, their expressions then becoming serious.
Although Wei Longtao’s cultivation level was the lowest among the four, he was a genius that would only appear once in a hundred years in the Wei Clan. He was also the son of the Wei Clan Head, and he even had a chance to break through to the Supreme Stage realm. Therefore, the three of them had to listen to his orders.
“Sect Master Bai, you are indeed very strong. It’s quite impressive that you were able to keep up for so long against two of us.” Wei Zheng looked at the indifferent Bai Ye and said faintly, “However, this is the end.”
Even someone as strong as Wei Zheng had to admit Bai Ye’s strength, but unfortunately for Bai Ye, victory could only belong to them!
Bai Ye frowned slightly and immediately released his spirit sense to increase his vigilance.
Seeing Bai Ye’s reaction, Wei Zheng laughed, “Hehe, Sect Master Bai, have you forgotten how our Wei Clan rose to power?”
“Fiend beasts…” Bai Ye’s pupils constricted.
The most famous cultivation technique of the Wei Clan was the one that allowed them to contract with fiend beasts. Until now, no one knew how many fiend beasts the Wei Clan had contracted with. It was precisely because of this hidden power that no one dared to casually provoke the Wei Clan.
A thought worth pondering, after offending the Wei Clan, what would happen if thousands of fiend beasts jumped out and came after the offender?
“Just in case, we specially brought contracted fiend beasts on this mission. I didn’t expect it to really come in handy.” With a sigh, Wei Zheng’s expression had turned ugly.
Initially, they thought that they would be able to easily destroy the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. However, they did not expect that not only would the three of them fail to defeat two people, they would even have to use a fiend beast. To them, this was already very humiliating.
“I’ll give you all another chance. As long as you’re willing to submit to our Wei Clan, we will allow you to still enjoy a very high status. In fact, I can even lower the cultivation resources you need to give up to forty percent. What do you think?” Wei Zheng said lightly.
Now that the Stargate Sect had collapsed, it would be best if Bai Ye could manage this area. The Wei Clan only needed to control this area. As for whether the overseer was someone from the Stargate Sect or someone from the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, it did not matter to them.
“Sorry. No way.” Bai Ye firmly refused.
Putting aside the fact that he would never submit to the Wei Clan and give up their cultivation resources, it was impossible for him to hand over the person who killed Wei Ping. After all, the person who killed Wei Ping was Qin Jue.
“Since you’re so stubborn, don’t blame us for what we’re about to do to you!” Wei Zheng snorted and then made a strange sound as if he was summoning something.
For a Heaven Stage expert like Wei Zheng, the fiend beasts he contracted with would at least be Heaven Stage, not to mention the other elders who also had their own fiend beasts. Together, their strength was equivalent to six Heaven Stage experts. With such an advantage in numbers, no matter how strong Bai Ye was, they would still be able to crush him easily.
Wei Jia and Wei Yi also made strange sounds and summoned their contracted fiend beasts.
Surprisingly, however, some time had gone by, and they still hadn’t heard a response from the beasts, let alone their appearance. The atmosphere became somewhat awkward.
“What happened?” Wei Zheng raised his head in confusion.
Their fiend beasts were on the Cloud Piercing Spirit Ship, so it was impossible for them to not hear it at such a close distance.
Right at this moment, a black figure suddenly fell out of the Cloud Piercing Spirit Ship!
“It’s finally comi—” Wei Zheng heaved a sigh of relief.
Before he could finish his sentence, the black figure had already crashed into the ground, raising a cloud of dust.
Everyone focused their eyes and realized that it was indeed a fiend beast. However, only half of its body was left, and fresh blood that was scarlet and pungent was constantly flowing out.
“My Amethyst Lion King! It’s my Amethyst Lion King!” Wei Yi exclaimed in disbelief.
Even though only half of its body was left, one could still tell that it was a Heaven Stage Amethyst Lion King!
Before Wei Yi could react, two more black figures descended from the sky and landed beside the Amethyst Lion King.
“Our middle-phase Heaven Stage Fire Spirit Ape and late-phase Heaven Stage Black Scaled Python…” Bai Ye spoke one name after another, causing Wei Zheng and Wei Jia to fall into a daze.
Just like the Amethyst Lion King, these two fiend beasts had also lost half their bodies. Even their fiend crystals were completely shattered, and they were deader than dead.
“How could this be…?” Wei Zheng muttered to himself, unable to bring himself to believe what he was seeing.
The Black Scaled Python that he spent so much effort to subdue died just like that?
One had to know that the Black Scaled Python was known for its strong defense. Even he himself would be unable to kill it. Could there be a Supreme Stage cultivator hidden here?
Are you kidding me?!
Wu Ying, who had just run out of the main hall, heard the commotion and turned around. He had a blank look on his face, unaware of what had happened.
“Who?! Who did this?!” Wei Zheng roared towards the sky, his voice echoing for kilometers, piercing through gold and splitting stone!
“Hey, hey, hey, stop with the screaming. It’s so noisy.”
Suddenly, an impatient voice interrupted Wei Zheng. Everyone looked in the direction of the voice and saw a handsome youth dressed in fluttering white clothes flying down from the Cloud Piercing Spirit Ship. He held a wine pot in one hand and was digging into his ears with the other.
“Who are you?” Wei Zheng was unable to restrain his anger. He stared fixedly at Qin Jue, his intuition telling him that this youth was very dangerous!
“I am the one who killed Wei Ping.” Qin Jue took a sip of wine and added, “Also, your three pets were too rude. I just went to the ship to take a look, but they attacked me before I could say anything. I had no choice but to kill them all.”
Wei Zheng: “…”
Hearing these words, Wei Zheng’s first reaction was anger, but he quickly realized that something was wrong. If all three Heaven Stage fiend beasts were killed by this youth in front of him, then just how strong was he?
“You’re saying that… you single-handedly killed these three fiend beasts?” Wei Zheng’s voice was trembling.
“Obviously.” Qin Jue shrugged his shoulders and smiled. “What? Do you want to avenge them?”
In an instant, Wei Zheng felt as though he had fallen into an ice cave. He could not help but shudder!
