Chapter 804: Gathering at Changyang Manor (Four)
“Chang Wuji, it really is you.”
Chang Wuji’s calls of ‘old madam’ and ‘old master’ towards Changyang Zu Yeyun and Changyang Zu Yunxiao had undoubtedly proved his identity. With that, Changyang Zu Yeyun no longer doubted Chang Wuji and immediately cried out. Her voice was filled with utmost joy.
To Changyang Zu Yeyun, finding Chang Wuji was equivalent to finding her long-lost son. The person she truly cared for was not Chang Wuji, but rather her son.
“Chang Wuji, where’s Kong’er? Where is Kong’er? You initially left the clan with Kong’er. You’re definitely with Kong’er, right? Tell me just where my Kong’er is.” Changyang Zu Yeyun’s trembling voice was filled with urgency. Currently, her heart that had suffered for centuries finally became excited for the first time. She had never been so excited, so joyful, ever since her son had been expelled from the clan centuries ago.
“Master- master- master, he…” Seeing his old madam and master, Chang Wuji also became extremely excited. His weak voice was inarticulate and he coughed heavily from his heavy injuries. He spat out a few mouthfuls of blood, some of it even landing on the clothes of Changyang Zu Yeyun and Changyang Zu Yunxiao.
Changyang Zu Yunxiao immediately produced a pill from his Space Ring and fed it to Uncle Chang. The pill was a saintly medicine made specially by the Changyang clan and contained countless precious heavenly resources. Its value was even on-par to high class Radiant Spirit Pills.
Consuming the pill, Uncle Chang’s injuries that had constantly worsened finally stabilised, already taking a good turn. Looking at the heavily-injured Chang Wuji, Changyang Zu Yunxiao darked a lot as a powerful killing intent appeared in his eyes. He said with a deep voice, “Chang Wuji, who injured you?”
Uncle Chang looked at the group of people from the Radiant Saint Master Union in the sky, and said weakly, “It’s the people from the Radiant Saint Master Union. They want to force everyone to go to the City of God.”
“How dare they!” Changyang Zu Yunxiao was instantly angered. A powerful aura immediately began to radiate from him, enveloping the surrounding space. The aura was filled with an extremely dense killing intent.
Even in the past centuries, Changyang Zu Yunxiao had never become so angered. Although the Radiant Saint Master Union was an organisation that stood on the apex of the Tian Yuan Continent, equal to ancient clans, they were as weak as ants before the protector Changyang clan. They were completely overshadowed by the Changyang clan. And now, his son, the son of one of the seven great elders, had founded a clan outside that was actually being trampled like this by the Radiant Saint Master Union. How was it possible for Changyang Zu Yunxiao to not be mad? At the same time, he also thought about how much suffering his son would have went through in all these years. As a father, this caused immense grief to Changyang Zu Yunxiao.
With a tremble on his body he immediately appeared high in the sky, staring coldly at the people from the union. He called out coldly, “Who dares injure the people of the Changyang clan? Stand forward! Otherwise, you’ll all be suffering the punishment together!”
The people of the union looked at each other, all extremely grim. They could already vaguely guess that Changyang Zu Yunxiao was a Saint King. This had completely exceeded what the union had anticipated for the Changyang clan, to have a Saint King supporting it.
“Sir, may I ask who you are?” An old voice sounded from behind. It was an old man with a hoarse voice. He seemed powerless, like an old man at the doors of death.
The old man was the same old man who Jian Chen had initially met in the Radiant Saint Tower, wiping the furniture with a cloth. At the same time, he was a powerful Saint King.
“Zu Yunxiao of Changyang!” He said expressionlessly.
Hearing the name, those who had some understandings of the ten protector clans in the group from the union all changed greatly in expression. They stared at him in shock, while fear seeped out from the depths of their gazes. The president immediately clasped his hands at Changyang Zu Yunxiao, and asked sternly, “Is sir perhaps a member from the Zu branch of the Zu, Yuan and Qing branches of the protector clans?”
Immediately, all the people from the union became heavy-hearted. At first they had thought that the Changyang clan in Lore City was just a small clan with a name that coincided with the protector clan. Never did they think that the connection between the two was not just the same name, and that the Lore City one had a rather special connection with the higher levels of the protector clan.
As soon as the words of the president was heard by the older members of the Changyang clan, they all shook violently while an indescribable light flickered in their eyes. They did not know about the three branches of the protector clan, but they saw the fear in the people from the union. They had already guessed that the protector clan was definitely a clan even more powerful than the union. This revived their despaired hearts instantly, as if they had all seen the light of hope.
Changyang Zu Yunxiao stared coldly at the president, and said slowly, “You sure do know some stuff, even knowing about the three branches of the Changyang clan.” Afterwards, Changyang Zu Yunxiao slowly glanced past all the people and said, “Who was it that injured the person from my Changyang clan? If you don’t talk now, I can only throw you all on the punishment list.”
The group of people all became ugly. They could not afford to offend a protector clan, no matter what, and had even put away all the arrogance that had already seeped to their bones. They did not dare to show even a sliver of it. Meanwhile, the middle-aged man who had injured Uncle Chang became extremely ugly, and floated there blankly, unwilling to speak. He was already filled with regret.
“It’s him, it was him who injured Uncle Chang.” At this very moment, a gentle voice sounded from below. Standing in the ground, the azure-robed Yu Fengyan pointed towards the man who had injured Uncle Chang and spoke out loudly, while her face was filled with anger.
“Yeah, it was he who injured Uncle Chang.”
“You need to avenge Uncle Chang.”
After what Yu Fengyan said, the various senior members of the clan all pointed to the middle-aged man. They were all extremely mad. With how everything was now, they could already guess that the couple who had suddenly appeared definitely had some deep connection with the Changyang clan.
Changyang Zu Yunxiao’s glaring eyes landed on the man, and he immediately roared, “Even a mere Saint Ruler dares to injure the people of my Changyang clan!? Die!” With that, Changyang Zu Yunxiao appeared silently before the middle-aged man, and he extended his hand, reaching towards his head. At the same time, the man’s surrounding space froze, trapping and immobilising him.
At this very moment, the old man appeared out of nowhere before the man being attacked, and directly threw a punch that collided with Changyang Zu Yunxiao’s palm.
With a muffled sound, the strikes from the Saint Kings caused the surrounding space to tremble violently, even though they had controlled their strengths very well.
Changyang Zu Yunxiao’s gaze became slightly cold. He said icily, “You dare to stop me.”
“Sir, although it was a person from our union who injured your clansmen, he is not dead. I hope sir can be merciful and let him off.” The old man clasped his hands.
“Piss off!” Killing intent exploded in Changyang Zu Yunxiao’s heart. With a sneer, he threw another palm strike at the old man. It was clearly much more powerful, as wherever it passed it would create a crack in space.
The Saint King from the union became grim. With a deep shout, his skinny, stick-like hand, clad in vast World Force, shot towards Changyang Zu Yunxiao to catch his strike. He definitely could not let a Saint Ruler of the union die because of a small mistake like this.
They could not afford to lose Saint Rulers even though they were the Radiant Saint Master Union. This was because there were not many experts in the union, so every single one of them was extremely important. They were the main force of the union.
The two hands collided mid-air with great amounts of world force. Silently, the surrounding space shook, causing all of it in a radius of several dozen meters to crack like a mirror.
With that strike, the Saint King from the union paled slightly. He immediately shot backwards in retreat. Meanwhile, Changyang Zu Yunxiao stood steadily in the air, without taking a single step backwards. Changyang Zu Yunxiao then took a step and appeared before the Saint Ruler who had injured Chang Wuji once again. He said coldly, “Those who injure people of my Changyang clan will never be forgiven!” With that, Changyang Zu Yunxiao extended his hand, striking the Saint Ruler’s head.
The Saint Ruler was already trapped and was unable to move at all. He could not even dodge Changyang Zu Yunxiao’s palm strike. The hand directly shook his brains into mush and destroyed his origin soul. He was already dead as blood spurted out from his eyes, nose, mouth and ears.
After killing off the Saint Ruler, Changyang Zu Yunxiao eyed the Saint King that he had knocked away with a single strike coldly. “If you want to be reckless like that again, I’ll kill you too. You’re still not my opponent with your Second Heavenly Layer strength.”
The Saint King was angry, but he did not dare to refute. A while later, he finally produced a soft sigh while his face was ashen. He indeed could not offend the Changyang clan of the protector clans. If it went overboard, even the Radiant Saint Master Union would be sucked in and suffer the devastating attacks of the Changyang clan.
Today, the union could only forcefully accept this loss.
Changyang Zu Yeyun did not pay any attention to the battle above. She squatted beside Chang Wuji, and asked urgently, “Chang Wuji, quickly tell me just where my Kong’er is right now. What is his situation?”
After being treated with the saintly medicine, Chang Wuji’s injuries had already recovered by a lot. He stood up from the ground with some difficulty and said bitterly, “Old madam, master’s already left centuries ago. He went outside to look for a method to break through the seal, and there’s been no sound of him even up until now.”
“What!? Kong’er- Kong’er, he…” Changyang Zu Yeyun immediately became lost. She, originally filled with hope, became despaired with what Uncle Chang had said. She originally thought that she would definitely find her long-lost son, Changyang Zu Yunkong, as long as she found Chang Wuji, but never did she think it would turn out like this.
