Chapter 149: Being Stranded
“Find them! They ought to be around here somewhere!” Kang Haotian, a Core Condensation Expert leader of Profound Azure Mansion currently searched for disciple of Jade Palace at the dense forest in the outskirt of Wind City. He led a dozen of Spirit Refinement Cultivator with him.
The forest was searched thoroughly by Kang Haotian’s men and the once peaceful forest was filled by killing intent at the moment. Fortunately, there was no civilian around the forest or they could be killed by this massive killing intent alone!
Inside some cavé in the forest, some disciple of Jade Palace and Elder Mo Yu currently hid and they could sense that there are some people nearby heading toward them fast. Elder Mo Yu could sense the fear and panic in her disciple’s faces, “Elder, are we really safe here?” One of the female disciples asked Mo Yu worriedly.
“It should be okay, as long as they don’t get too curious they could easily miss the secret passage.” Great Elder Mo Yu tried to console her disciples, but the truth is she was panic as well. This was supposed to be a quick in and out, they just procured some food and was on their way back to Heavens Immersing Ancient Ruin.
They already made arrangement with Wind Pavilion to prepare food for them, although Jade Palace was self sufficient in the past, but as many of them now currently focused on cultivating their martial arts and cultivation, plus they just recently moved to Heavens Immersing Ancient ruin. There was just not enough time for them to be self sufficient at the moment.
After they explained their situation to Zi Yuwei, the current Pavilion Lord of Wind Pavilion, she immediately agreed to help them and conducted the transaction at a secluded place. They never expected the Profound Azure Mansion to be able to sniff their path. Elder Mo Yu figured Profound Azure Mansion’s movement a little bit too late, making her late to respond and evacuate.
Great Elder Mo Yu tried to keep calm, she racked her brain trying to think of some way to escape this situation. She could in fact escape by her own, but she couldn’t bring herself to abandon her disciple to die here. Suddenly, they could hear some noises approaching their location.
“Check that side!” Elder Mo Yu heard a man’s voice. The sound was gradually closer and closer by every second, Profound Azure Mansion’s force was just too many for Mo Yu to handle alone. They even had 2 Core Condensation expert with them.
“Great Elder Yu, what should we do?” All Jade Palace’s disciple trembled from fear.
Mo Yu just sighed deeply and thought for a second before looking at her disciples with a sad expression, “Maybe this is the time were we must stand and fight for our lives!”
The noises from Profound Azure Mansion outside became louder with each passing second, they all quickly realize they couldn’t stay here any longer, for they didn’t have another exit, they could be trapped here and that would be their end.
“We have to sneak out from here! We would escape one by one and if you get caught, prepare yourself to fight till the end. Don’t let yourself get caught!” Elder Mo Yu steeled herself and her disciples to prepare for the worst if they got caught!
“We will!” all her disciple said at the same time, with resolute on their eyes! Although they still didn’t want to die, but it was better than what could happen if they were captured. Elder Mo Yu quickly paced herself and her disciple to exit the cave sneakily. Mo Yu observed that there was no one outside the cave and quickly made their way toward the Heavens Immersing Ancient Ruin.
After just a few steps from the cave entrance, they were startled by a man shouting, “They are here! They are here!”
Immediately Profound Azure Mansion man that are scattered around the forest looking for them, surrounded the in front of the cave, leaving them no place to escape!
“Elder of Jade Palace, why so eager to leave? Can you tell us what happen to our elder and deacon that we send here not too long ago? They disappeared without any news.” Kang Haotian said while smirking at Mo Yu, he knew that Jade Palace must be the one responsible for that, seeing that they quickly escaped and leave behind their palace.
A sound of sword quickly heard, the disciples in both sides have drawn their sword out. Elder Mo Yu and her disciples felt desperation creeping out on them, they couldn’t escape the two core condensation expert who was watching their movement like a hawk and the number of spirit refinement cultivator surrounding them was just too much.
“I don’t know about them! We have nothing to do with them!” Elder Mo Yu said coldly, admitting to none of their accusation.
“Are you serious? Do you think we believe your bullshit? if you really have nothing to do with it then why Jade Palace running away? You must have imprison them or kill them for whatever reason you have making us your enemy!” Kang Haotian said while sneering at Elder Mo Yu. But Elder Mo Yu stood strong, she couldn’t show any sign of weakness or that would be the end!
Someone quickly stepped in front of Elder Mo Yu, startling her.
“What is happening here?” Zhu Yuwei suddenly shouted, she didn’t know anything about Jade Palace’s situation, but she knows that Jade Palace are in some short of trouble. She didn’t know that it had something to do with Profound Azure Mansion!
“Pavilion Lord Zi of Wind Pavilion! What are you doing here? If there is no reason for you to be here, I ask you kindly to leave!” Kang Haotian said solemnly.
“Pavilion Lord Zi, Profound Azure Mansion is quite strong! Leave us, there is no need to get yourself in trouble!” Mo Yu quickly said to Zhu Yuwei, as she didn’t want her to be troubled by Jade Palace’s problems.
Zhu Yuwei eyes suddenly darkened and she quickly pulled out her sword and began attacking Profound Azure Mansion. This attack was actually a signal for her man waiting behind her, making them join the fight as well.
Zhu Yuwei’s action shocked both Kang Haotian and Elder Mo Yu, Zhu Yuwei suddenly attacked without any explanation!
“Why would you attack Profound Azure Mansion of all people! You! You will be stripped off your status from Wind Pavilion you hear me! All your act has nothing to do with us anymore!” an elder of Wind Pavilion shouted at Zhu Yuwei in horror, as he took his leave. Zhu Yuwei quickly killed him and a few guards following him.
“Come on! We have to flee from here!” Zhu Yuwei signaled Elder Mo Yu to escape from here. This was the beginning of the chaos ensued between Profound Azure Mansion and Jade Palace.
At the same time, Yi Tianyun was heading to Earthly Borders Continent as fast as possible to help out. With Black Dragon’s speed he would be there in no time. He also killed any Profound Azure Mansion carriage he saw along the way.
“I hope I am not too late!” Tianyun said while looking gloomy, his cultivation base has improved but it was not enough! He still had to level up somehow and fast!
