Chapter 133- What each conspiracy needs
"That day, Su Clan's Ah Qi met our sect leader. He is a Rank 5 cultivator who has been famous for very long, and our Immortal Farming Sect naturally treated him with the due respect. Ah Qi and our sect leader interacted for a very long time, and at first both the host and guest were enjoying themselves."
"Then, Su Clan's Ah Qi enquired about the Sevenshine Wonderfruit. Because a junior of his had failed a tribulation, he was searching for medicines to help heal this junior. Through recommendations, he had come to our Immortal Farming Sect. The Sevenshine Wonderfruit is the most precious treasure which has been passed down for generations through our Immortal Farming Sect. For some reason, it was discovered by several fellow Daoists, and it was even hailed as some divine medicine by them. Finally, the medicinal effects became more incredible the more it spread, and it was actually thought that the Sevenshine Wonderfruit could heal Heavenly Tribulation injuries. What was interesting was that we ourselves didn't know that the Sevenshine Wonderfruit has such godly effects." Saying this, apprentice brother Justwords poked fun at himself.
Rumours stopped when it came to wise men. However, the world just had to run amok with fools. Especially for those who had sunk into despair, it was easy for them to believe otherwise.
Song Shuhang didn't know why apprentice brother Justwords was saying all this to him. However, since it was related to senior Ah Qi, he just silently listened.
"Then, Su Clan's Ah Qi asked us whether we would part with the Sevenshine Wonderfruit. He would use valuable treasures to make an exchange. Our sect leader rejected him, as the Sevenshine Wonderfruit is the most valuable treasure of our sect. It also has no ability to heal Heavenly Tribulation injuries, and thus it had no basis for a trade. Su Clan's Ah Qi also didn't force the issue, then left the Immortal Farming Sect with his companion.
Saying to this point, Justwords paused, then frowned as he said. "However, what no one expected was that that night… Su Clan's Ah Qi would barge into our Immortal Farming Sect, and continuously injure eighteen of our Immortal Farming Sect's disciples. He snatched away the Sevenshine Wonderfruit!"
This was the enmity between Su Clan's Ah Qi and their Immortal Farming Sect.
That was why the adorably foolish uncle tailed Ah Shilu, and hoped to capture her alive to force Su Clan's Ah Qi to appear.
Song Shuhang frowned upon hearing this much.
He thought about that assassin who tried to assassinate Ah Shilu. Behind the enmity of Su Clan's Ah Qi and the Immortal Farming Sect, there was actually someone who was intentionally trying to sow discord.
Thinking about this, Song Shuhang tried to make his tone gentle. "Excuse me, but can you be sure that the person who barged into the Immortal Farming Sect was indeed Su Clan's Ah Qi?"
"Of course we're sure. That night, our sect's strongest apprentice brother Justmight as well as thirty apprentice brothers were in charge of guarding the secret grounds of the sect. Su Clan's Ah Qi suddenly appeared, and with one sabre attack defeated apprentice brother Justmight and heavily injured eighteen disciples. My sect's disciples personally witnessed his looks, and there was also that unique sabre art of his, the [Skysabre Buries the Starsea]." Apprentice brother Justmight explained.
"…" The edges of Song Shuhang's mouth twitched. There were so many suspicious points, he didn't even know where to start ridiculing it!
Su Clan's Ah Qi went to someone's place to rob them, and actually revealed his real face?
Also, he took advantage of the night to do bad things, but still showed a secret art unique to him? Was he afraid people wouldn't recognise him?
How stupid, or exactly how wildly arrogant would Su Clan's Ah Qi have to be to do this?
"I think you have some friendship with the Su Clan descendant, which is why I'm telling you all this. I hope you won't interfere with the enmity between the Immortal Farming Sect and Su Clan's Ah Qi." Apprentice brother Justwords said.
He wanted to advise Song Shuhang not to enter this conflict of right and wrong.
Song Shuhang thought for a while, before replying. "I don't know much regarding the enmity between you all and senior Ah Qi. So I don't have the right to say anything. However. There's something that happened not long ago that I think it's better to let you know. When that uncle from the Immortal Farming Sect tried to capture Su Clan's Ah Shiliu, he failed, then retreated. But not longer after the uncle left, there was suddenly an assassin who attempted to assassinate Su Clan's Ah Shiliu. If I hadn't been there, Ah Shiliu may be dead already."
Song Shuhang stopped speaking after this, and didn't explain any further.
If the other side trusted him, it would properly consider his words. If the other side didn't trust him, his explanation would only have a negative effect.
Justwords frowned, and began to ponder deeply.
China, the Blue Origin Valley.
The Moonsabre Sect had already had their migration, left their sect and made their way to the 'Blue Origin Valley'.
This Blue Origin Valley was a refuge secretly constructed by the Moonsabre Sect many years ago. The valley had all kinds of preparations ready, and could be considered a second sect base for the Moonsabre Sect.
As there had long been preparations made, the Moonsabre Sect had migrated very fast. Before three hours had even passed, they had already completed the migration.
Under the arrangements of the various elders, the disciples used their identity and positions to chose their residences in Blue Origin Valley to settle their belongings.
Then, the Moonsabre Sect disciples began to prepare a giant guardian formation for the sect.
The 'sect guardian formation' was one modified by Elder Young Master Hai after research, and could for a short time allow the Moonsabre Sect disciples to double their battle power.
The Moonsabre Sect disciples believed that with this formation, they could block even a Rank 5 Spirit Emperor who had formed their Gold Core if one came attacking!
Once everything was settled properly, Elder Young Master Hai went to the Sect Leader, the Tyrant of a Thousand Soldiers, to report the current state of affairs. Once he left the Sect Leader, he returned to the private residence in the Blue Origin Valley.
His residence was very clean, with only a purple coloured bamboo lonelily growing in a pot.
Young Master Hai entered the room, and activated a defensive formation, which could temporarily block outsider's spying.
Then, his right sleeve moved, and that clump of black smoke that was Devil Monarch Anzhi's clone came out, letting out a weird laughter of 'jiejie'.
At the same time, that purple bamboo began to tremble slightly.
"The mission to assassinate Ah Shiliu failed?" That purple coloured bamboo trembled and let out a very robotic voice.
"It failed. What a pity. Even the [Bloodgod Sabre] talisman couldn't kill the Su Clan descendant. These junior cultivators who come from famous clans really aren't easy to deal with." Young Master Hai put his hand on the longsword on his waist, smiling slightly.
"It's really troublesome. Now we won't be able to lure Su Clan's Ah Qi to deal with the Immortal Farming Sect." That purple coloured bamboo was dissatisfied.
"Jiejie, from the start, we already predicted this might happen." Devil Monarch Anzhi's black smoke clone laughed weirdly. "Anyways even if the Immortal Farming Sect attacks the Moonsabre Sect, we can also achieve our goal."
"Hmph. You two would naturally be fine. I on the other hand, need to expend extra effort. Then I'll settle for the next best thing. The second plan-has the Su Clan descendant been captured alive? If not, we won't be able to lure Su Clan's Ah Qi over." The purple coloured bamboo continued.
Young Master Hai's eyes slightly sunk. "Devil Monarch Anzhi's true body has personally gone to catch the Su Clan descendant. I also let a cute tool stall Su Clan's Ah Qi. Devil Monarch. You should succeeded already right?"
"Er." Devil Monarch Anzhi's clone paused. "How do I say this. Because a big dog interfered, in a haste, this Devil Monarch caught the wrong person… As you all know, to this Devil Monarch humans and monkeys are more or less similar, and all look the same. How can this Devil Monarch tell them apart?"
The purple coloured bamboo mocked him. "Which is to say, the second plan failed as well?"
"It's not necessarily a failure. Actually we just need to make a move against the Su Clan descendant. Even if we didn't capture her alive, as long as he finds a lead, Su Clan's Ah Qi will come to the Moonsabre Sect to seek vengeance for his junior given his personality. If Ah Qi doesn't come at that time… this Devil Monarch will personally act and lure him here." Devil Monarch Anzhi's clone grit his teeth.
"You said it yourself. We didn't force you to." The purple coloured bamboo laughed coldly. "Just don't get chopped in half within one sabre strike by Su Clan's Ah Qi when the time comes."
"Hmph. You can be at ease. This Devil Monarch naturally has his own methods." Devil Monarch Anzhi laughed coldly.
Young Master Hai sat on the chair, and one hand supported his chin. A slight smile appeared at the corners of his mouth. "Then, we'll continue to follow the second plan… Now. First lure the Immortal Farming Sect people over, and let them have a taste of the might of the grand formation I 'painstakingly made changes to'. It'll also boost the confidence of the Moonsabre Sect disciples. After all, they are about to face the powerful existence known as Su Clan's Ah Qi."
The purple coloured bamboo trembled slightly, saying. "Alright. I'll think of a way to lure the experts of the Immortal Farming Sect over. At that time, we must kill several important members. As for their sect leader, we'll leave him alive for a few days so he has time to go back to the Immortal Farming Sect and arrange his funeral arrangements. This will give us the chance to obtain the secrets of the Immortal Farming Sect."
Young Master Hai nodded. "Quickly act. We need to do this before Ah Qi comes. Let the Immortal Farming Sect come to the Blue Origin Valley."
"Relax, I'll immediately prepare." The purple coloured bamboo said.
At this time, Devil Monarch Anzhi made a weird laugh. "Jiejie, that's right. Although I didn't catch Su Clan's Ah Shilu, on the way I met the people of the Immortal Farming Sect. There seemed to be one called Justheart. He seemed to have some importance in the Immortal Farming Sect. I thought he may have some use, so I caught him."
"Justheart of the Immortal Farming Sect? If it's him, he may really have some use. Temporarily leave him alive, just in case." The purple coloured bamboo replied.
"Alright, then we'll take action separately. I pray that everything will go smoothly." Young Master Hai rose to his feet.
"It'll definitely go smoothly." Devil Monarch Anzhi laughed ferociously.
"We'll definitely succeed." The purple coloured bamboo trembled slightly, then calmed down.
Devil Monarch Anzhi's clone burrowed back into Young Master Hai's sleeves.
Young Master Hai undid the defensive formation in the room, then rested for a while, before making his way to where the Tyrant of a Thousand Soldiers was again.
As usual, the Tyrant of a Thousand Soldiers was sitting on the chair made of Cold Frostmetal, staring in a daze at the Sevenshine Wonderfruit. This was the treasure that could heal him. Unfortunately, it couldn't be orally ingested, and they still lacked the method of usage.
After seeing Young Master Hai enter, the Tyrant of a Thousand Soldiers's eyes flashed. "Elder Young Master Hai, has the second plan started yet?"
Young Master Hai nodded slightly. "Yes Sect Leader. I just contacted our spy in the Immortal Farming Sect. He's already begun to act, giving the information to the Immortal Farming Sect about how Su Clan's Ah Qi and the Sevenshine Wonderfruit are at the Moonsabre Sect. Next, we need to find a place to ambush the Immortal Farming Sect, and kill all their important figures. At that time, our spy will be able to inherit everything of the Immortal Farming Sect, and obtain the recipe for the usage of the Sevenshine Wonderfruit. At that time, the Heavenly Tribulation flames that have been bothering Sect Leader for years can be healed."
"If so that's good!" The Tyrant of a Thousand Soldiers sighed. He was tormented day and night by the Heavenly Tribulation flames. Even if there was only a sliver of hope to heal, he wouldn't let it go!
"It's a pity. If the first plan was successful, we wouldn't have even needed to act ourselves. We could have borrowed Ah Qi's power to crush the Immortal Farming Sect, and the spy we planted into the Immortal Farming Sect would have been able to obtain all the secrets of the Immortal Farming Sect." The Tyrant of a Thousand Soldiers sighed.
"Man proposes, Heaven disposes." Young Master Hai said smiling.
"You're right, elder." The Tyrant of a Thousand Soldiers propped his body up. "But we should still scheme a bit more. I don't believe the Heavens won't let us succeed time and time again!"
Young Master Hai smiled as he nodded.
Leave it to the Heavens for success? Haha!
Everything is in the palm of my hands. What need is there for the Heavens to allow things to succeed?
At the other side, at the location of the Immortal Farming Sect disciples.
"Apprentice brother Justmight is here!" A disciple said in happy surprise.
In the distance, there was a man wearing blue coloured garments of the Immortal Farming Sect, stepping on a streak of light and speedily coming here…
