Jiang Yueli looked at Li Changsheng and the others with her beautiful eyes. Over transmitted thoughts, she replied, “It was nothing.”
The reason why she had spoken up on their behalf was that she had indeed seen Great Yan Ancient Royal Family and Lingxiao Palace instigating the matter. After all, she had personally witnessed the other party pursuing the cultivators of Wangshen Watchtower. Now that the other party had been killed off instead, if the cultivators of Wangshen Watchtower were punished, it would be unjust.
These people also seemed to have all been killed by Ye Futian. How had he managed to do so alone?
This dispute was so intense that the various cultivators seemed to have forgotten about the battle itself. How had Ye Futian killed Ling He and Yan Dongyang? The other party must have had powerful Renhuangs protecting them. Yet, they had all been killed.
Upon closer inspection, how terrifying exactly was Ye Futian’s combat ability?
How much was he hiding?
No one knew. No one had observed the battle. Those who did had all been slain aside from Ye Futian. With these deaths, Lingxiao Palace and Great Yan Ancient Royal Family would most likely not let Ye Futian off. Moreover, Yan Dongyang and Ling He had also died. No matter what, the two forces would surely kill Ye Futian.
If the Chief sided with Ye Futian, that would be best. However, judging from Ning Hua’s attitude, that would be difficult. There would certainly be a large-scale battle once they left this secret zone. Ye Futian was in a precarious position. It would also be difficult for Wangshen Watchtower to protect him.
After all, Great Yan Ancient Royal Family itself was against Wangshen Watchtower before this. Ye Futian only happened to come along and joined Wangshen Watchtower to cultivate.
“After we leave the secret zone, await your sentence,” ordered Ning Hua as he swept a glance at Li Changsheng and the other cultivators of the Wangshen Watchtower. The tone of his voice was domineering, and he used words that screeched in their ears.
Await their sentence. It was as though, to him, the cultivators of Wangshen Watchtower were criminals waiting to be sentenced.
Li Changsheng and Zong Chan naturally understood where Ning Hua was coming from. Indeed, they had to await their sentence. Since the Chief himself was part of this, he would undoubtedly stand on Great Yan Ancient Royal Family and Lingxiao Palace’s side. If that was the case, why would he consider their position? They would most likely face a crisis after leaving this place.
Over transmitted thought, the Millet Emperor instructed them to stay in the secret zone for as long as they could, asking them to delay their return to the outside world. The Millet Emperor was probably making preparations. However, if that happened, the Millet Emperor himself might offend the Chief.
Of course, since the Chief was part of this himself, he was most likely also involved in Supreme Deity Donglai’s death back in the day. If that were the case, the Chief and the Millet Emperor would naturally be at odds. It was just that the Chief had disguised it very well.
They knew that the Millet Emperor had always wanted to get to the bottom of Supreme Deity Donglai’s death. However, from the looks of it now, the closer they were to the truth of the matter, the more dangerous it would be.
Li Changsheng and the others did not say anything. The cultivators of Wangshen Watchtower all had cold looks in their eyes. They were suppressing the rage within them. However, this place was the turf of Domain Chief’s Manor. The other party was also the vice chief. Given the predicament they were in, no matter how angry they were, they had to hold it in for now.
“The cultivators of Wangshen Watchtower killed a prince of our Yan Kingdom. Vice Chief, you may wait for the Chief to set a verdict. However, the Yan Kingdom cannot wait. I hope Vice Chief can understand,” a cold voice said, filled with murderous intent. The person who had spoken was the crown prince of the Yan Kingdom, Yan Hanxing.
Ning Hua glanced at Yan Hanxing and then turned to leave. It was as though the matter was unrelated to him.
On the other side, along a mountain stream, a beam of light flashed past and then came to a stop along the stream. Two silhouettes appeared there. One of them had white hair and was dressed in white robes. It was Ye Futian, who had participated in the large-scale battle.
He looked at the person beside him. Ye Futian had met him before and had even fought against him. Chen Yi was rumored to have previously been a legendary figure in the Donghua Heavens. There were many stories about him. He had an extremely powerful ability and was proficient in the Sword of Light. His speed and killing power were terrifying. He actually managed to save Ye Futian from Ning Hua’s clutches. It was apparent from this how frightening his speed was.
It was just that Ye Futian could not figure out why Chen Yi had helped him.
Chen Yi had also offended Ning Hua in the process of saving Ye Futian.
They were in the Donghua Heavens, and Ning Hua had a high standing here. It was definitely not wise to snatch away someone from Ning Hua’s hands. Moreover, Chen Yi had done so to a cultivator who had defeated him and with whom he had no connections.
Hence, Ye Futian was perplexed. He looked at Chen Yi and said, “Many thanks, but why did you help me?”
Chen Yi looked back at Ye Futian. He smiled and said, “Would you believe me if I said that I believe we hit it off quite well?”
“I do not believe so,” Ye Futian immediately replied. Chen Yi blinked. He then smiled and said, “I have been undefeated all this time. The only time I have ever lost was to you during the Donghua Banquet. If you were killed or crippled by Ning Hua, I would not have the chance to regain my honor. Hence, you have to live.”
“Is that so?” Ye Futian looked somewhat suspiciously at Chen Yi. This time, Chen Yi had offended Ning Hua. Who else would dare to do so?
Chen Yi merely did so because he wanted to battle Ye Futian again and regain his honor?
“You still don’t believe me?” Chen Yi said when he saw the look in Ye Futian’s eyes. “Then, it might be because I cannot stand the actions of Great Yan Ancient Royal Family and Lingxiao Palace. They attacked first and were instead killed off, yet they claim the contrary. I really can’t stand that the Domain Chief’s Manor came to take you into custody. Where is the reasoning behind that?”
Ye Futian did not say anything. Each reason Chen Yi gave sounded absurd. However, that was not important. What was important was that the other party had helped him escape. Ye Futian still had a chance of survival.
Ye Futian peered into the distance. He did not continue questioning Chen Yi. The reason why he had helped Ye Futian was not important, regardless of what it was.
Would the members of Wangshen Watchtower be in danger? Ye Futian thought to himself. He had killed Ling He and Yan Dongyang. Even if Ning Hua wanted to act, he would still need to consider the image of the Domain Chief’s Manor. He could not just kill the cultivators of Wangshen Watchtower without reason. Their lives should still be safe. However, right now, Ye Futian could not foresee what would happen in the future and how these events would play out.
“Currently, you are the nail in the eyes of two top forces. Ning Hua also wants to take you into custody. It seems that you have nowhere to go. What do you plan to do?” Chen Yi asked Ye Futian.
Ye Futian shook his head. He was also at a loss. Before this, he had participated in the Donghua Banquet to join the Domain Chief’s Manor. Who knew that it would end up like this?
The Domain Chief was the true mastermind. When Ye Futian obtained the teachings of Supreme Deity Donglai, he was destined to be at odds with the Chief.
“I have a suggestion,” Chen Yi said.
“What is it?” Ye Futian asked.
“The Demon God Temple,” Chen Yi explained. “There is a disturbance in the Demon God Temple. The various demonic beasts have gathered over there. This secret zone certainly contains some secrets. Even the members of Domain Chief’s Manor have not managed to uncover these secrets. Why don’t we head over and try out our luck? Who knows? We might stumble upon some benefits.”
Ye Futian frowned. The various cultivators were also gathered there. If they went over, wouldn’t they instantly draw the attention of the other cultivators?
With his current situation, it seemed inappropriate!
