Chapter 343 The Ear Group
(Author’s Note: It was wrong about the strength of Big Slave before. When he came to Laosi City, he had already broken through to the third rank. Now he broke through again, that was the fourth rank.)
“E Gui, the leader of Sparrow Organization, worships the Envoy of the Flag!”
“Oh, the Envoy of the Flag? Are you not afraid to acknowledge the wrong person? “Mu Yi looked at E Gui. He didn’t expect that he would guess his identity. At the same time, he looked at the old Taoist priest. After all, he was the real Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag.
However, because of the changes of times, the former Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag was only a fighting zombie without his own mind, and his appearance had changed a lot. He could only be recognized by his Qi.
What’s more, E Gui had not seen the old Taoist priest for many years, so he did not recognize him, but he guessed the real identity of Mu Yi.
“The temperament of the Envoy of the Flag is the same as that of the old Envoy of the Flag. In addition, the token of the emissary has always been in the hands of the old Envoy of the Flag, so I dared to guess. I hope the Envoy of the Flag will not be surprised.” E Gui’s attitude was extremely humble, which surprised Gui San.
Gui San knelt in some panic. This was the Envoy of the Flag. What’s more, the hall master had knelt down. If he was still standing, wasn’t he too ignorant?
Li the Cripple didn’t understand. It was the first time he ever heard of the Sparrow Organization and the Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag. The only thing he could be sure of was that his new master had a mysterious origin and had great power.
Looking at E Gui, Mu Yi’s expression was somber. Although he had promised Leng Yu to take over the position of Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag, he had only done so in order to find the old Taoist priest and lay him to rest on Funiu Mountain because Mu Yi had already regarded it as his home.
His original plan was to find the old Taoist priest to save him and live in seclusion on Funiu Mountain. Then, he hadn’t cared about the grudges in the world, but he found that he had been too naive.
Not mention the key to the Yellow River‘s ancient road. Sooner or later, someone would come to fight him for it. Then, Prince Chun couldn’t get away with revenge.
Mu Yi could more or less guess who was the one that defeated the old Taoist and destroyed his foundation. In addition to his own strength, the power as the Envoy would also be very important. This was a good chance to take over as the Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag.
It would be impossible for Mu Yi to live in seclusion on the mountain away from the world. Even if he could let go of everything of the world of mortals, he had to think about his future. Without cultivation, how could he take that step?
Cultivation would lead to freeddom, but right now, he was giving up freedom.
In his mind, Mu Yi summoned the Xin lamp and suspended it in front of him.
“The colorful glaze lamp?” When E Gui saw the Xin lamp, he grew excited.
He hadn’t been confident in his guess until he saw the treasured lamp in front of him, he completely determined the identity of Mu Yi. Because the colorful glaze lamp was the real symbol of the Envoy of the Flag. Whoever could control the treasured lamp was the Envoy of the Flag because if you couldn’t even protect such a magic weapon, you were not qualified to be the Envoy of the Flag.
“Colorful glaze lamp?” Mu Yi was curious. He had always called it the Xin lamp as a nod to it being inherited from the old Taoist priest.
Its original name didn’t mean much to Mu Yi. It was just a title. However, according to the words of E Gui, the original appearance of the Xin lamp was that of colorful glass.
When the old Taoist priest gave it to him, it looked copper because the fire in the lamp had disappeared. Only when the fire had been recovered was the lamp reborn.
Since Mu Yi had the lamp, there was no doubt about his identity as the Envoy of the Vermillion Bird’s Flag. Other Envoys of Flags would not doubt his identity even though he was much weaker than other Envoys. Mu Yi would catch up sooner or later.
However, if he wanted the forces to be attached again, it depended on his ability. After all, no one was willing to spit out the meat in their mouths. Mu Yi would have to fight the Envoy of White Tiger’s Flag. Since he decided to take power, Mu Yi would not be polite.
“Tell me about the Sparrow Organization and the distribution of the strength of the Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag.”
In the old days, the Ear Group was known as the Seventy-Two Hall. The four big flags were divided equally. Each Envoy of the Flag had eighteen halls. Unfortunately, the Ear Group was divided into four parts and its power fell sharply. Most of the seventy-two halls disappeared in history leaving a little over half of them.
Therefore, the Envoys had to fight over every existing hall.
“At present, there are less than one hundred people in the Sparrow Organization, but the Envoy of the Flag can rest assured. As soon as the news you have appeared is announced, the Sparrow Organization will immediately return to its peak. As for the eighteen halls under our control, there are only seven left now, just…” E Gui looked at Mu Yi as his voice drifted off.
“If you have anything to say, it doesn’t matter,” said Mu Yi lightly.
“Yes. There are still seven halls under the Envoy of the Flag, but these years, the Envoy of the Flag hasn’t appeared, which led to the instability of each hall. At this time, the Envoy of White Tiger’s Flag sent people to divide and pull several halls. Three of our halls have joined the Envoy of White Tiger’s Flag.”
After E Gui finished speaking, his head was lower.
“That is to say, now there are only four halls under my command?” Mu Yi sneered. Maybe for the general world forces, the four halls were more than enough, but for the Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag, it was a shame.
After all, there was a dark guard named Liu Dao in the eighteen halls under the banner of Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag, which was very famous in the south. At present, there were only a few small groups left, and nearly half of people had been converted. No wonder Leng Yu said that his situation was not so good. The Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag was almost dead.
If he had continued to delay, when the real chaos began, the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag would surely have swallowed up his power.
The old Taoist Priest had been missing for years. Without the Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag, there was no way to rebuild it. However, the other Envoys of Flags had been quietly recovering their strength for such a long time, so it was true that now he was the weakest of the Envoys of Flags.
Mu Yi didn’t know what the old Taoist Priest was like in those days, but this situation was definitely not what he wanted. It was imperative to take those three halls back from the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag then concentrate on development and recovery to be ready to take the first opportunity in this turbulent world.
“I’m sure those hall leaders will change their minds when they hear about the return of the Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag.”
E Gui felt only cold sweat on his forehead.
“Change their mind? Hall Master E, are you kidding me?” Said Mu Yi lightly.
“I was wrong.” E Gui’s head immediately touched the floor, as if only in this way could he express his mind.
“I will go to those halls myself to discuss with the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag. As for you, I forgive you as you have managed the halls so well for so many years.”
“Thank you very much.” E Gui was relieved and straightened up.
Although Mu Yi was young, E Gui did not dare to anger him at all. Apart from his identity as an Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag, Mu Yi came out of the forest after one day and one night without injury. He didn’t believe that Mu Yi just stayed outside for one day, and he didn’t really think that Mu Yi had entered the forest and didn’t encounter any danger. Mu Yi was strong enough to get through the forest.
Li the Cripple was shocked by Mu Yi’s identity. Ten years ago, the Ear Group was famous across the whole world. Almost everyone knew about it. At that time, Li the Cripple had already entered the world. How could he not know the first group in the world?
Later, the Ear Group was in great trouble, and the first group in the world broke up, disappeared, and was no longer known. Because of this, and for a long time, he was confused when he heard about the Sparrow Organization and Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag.
But then, his dusty memory finally cleared out and understood the real identity of Mu Yi.
As one of the four Envoys of the Flags, he would have been the most powerful person under the Ear Group leader. The whole southern Wulin was afraid of them.
Moreover, the Ear Group’s strength even surpassed that of Mao Shan. The dragon and tiger millennial sects were prosperous for a while, but it was the boom and the bust that led to the subsequent Ear Group chaos. However, even ten years later, when the hidden power of the Ear Group came out again, it was still beyond imagination and shocked the world.
