Leng Rou and the others looked towards Su Zimo instinctively.
Although this opportunity was earned by them fighting on the long street, most importantly, it was because of Su Zimo.
If not for Su Zimo, they would have died long before they could even reach Xuantian City.
Su Zimo smiled and nodded.
Be it Thousand Crane Sect or Puppet Sect and Tomb Sect who appeared later on, the people who came were all the commanders of this expedition – the legacy disciples of the various sects.
That alone was enough to tell of their sincerity.
“Since we’re all in Xuantian City, we can meet one another at any time,” Little fatty was thoroughly engrossed in chatting with Sun Dian from Tomb Sect and bid farewell with that remark.
“I’ll be leaving too,”
Shi Jian scratched his head and left the hall behind Ying Ze of Puppet Sect.
Leng Rou nodded to Su Zimo as a form of greeting and left with Feng Manman of Thousand Crane Sect.
Tang Yu looked towards Ji Chengtian and blinked, saying in a playful tone, “Seems like I’ve got to extend my invitation right now or you’ll be poached away by the other sects.”
“If you don’t mind, I’m willing to join Elixir Yang Sect,” Ji Chengtian replied with a smile.
Tang Yu shifted her gaze towards Su Zimo and asked expectantly, “What about you?”
Although Su Zimo agreed to assist Elixir Yang Sect to contend for the Elixir Pool Sect ruins, he did not mention anything about joining the sect.
“I’m different from them.”
Su Zimo shook his head and did not explain further, declining tactfully.
Even though she expected that, Tang Yu could not help but feel disappointed when she heard his reply.
Su Zimo cupped his fists. “There’s no time to waste. I’ll head out to the Saber Mountain Spirit Sea right now and try to return earlier.”
Tang Yu reminded.
Turning around, Su Zimo disappeared before everyone’s eyes swiftly.
This was the first time that Su Zimo had shown his face in Xuantian City after that battle on the long street 10 days ago. Instantly, he attracted countless stares.
Some were in awe, some in envy, some curious…
“Did you see that? That scholarly green-robed cultivator is Su Zimo!”
“Oh, that’s him? I thought he was going to have multiple limbs and heads!”
There were cultivators in Xuantian City who hadn’t seen Su Zimo before. However, there were few who have not heard of his name.
Walking on the long street, Su Zimo could hear discussions coming from a few streets away with a mere twitch of his ears.
He was not bothered about such stuff.
However, before he walked far, his heart skipped a beat.
He sensed a fleeting killing intent from those strange gazes!
Was it a survivor of the Four Mounted Bandits?
The trees wanted silence but the wind did not stop.
To think that someone would be harboring designs on him even after that bloody battle on the long street!
Su Zimo maintained his composure and sneered in his heart, walking towards the east gate of Xuantian City.
The killing intent followed him the entire time.
Not long after he exited the city, Su Zimo sensed another killing intent on top of the first!
He was neither fast nor slow in his speed.
About two hours later, Su Zimo was already far from Xuantian City and his surroundings were empty with no one around.
Right then, the sound of clothes flapping could be heard from behind.
Su Zimo stopped in his tracks and turned around.
In the distant horizon, two figures were flying through the air at an extremely fast speed with a murderous aura.
Narrowing his gaze, he focused on the sect badges around their waists and scoffed coldly while muttering softly, “It’s indeed them!”
In the bloody battle on the long street, Su Zimo killed two seven meridian Foundation Establishment Cultivators. Although it was because he took advantage of the circumstances, ordinary cultivators wouldn’t dare to provoke him either.
Furthermore, he had the backing of Elixir Yang Sect.
However, there were two sects in Xuantian City who had sufficient strength and reason to cause trouble for him.
Glass Palace of the immortal sects and Malevolent Earth Sect of the fiend sects!
He had rejected Pei Chunyu and Xue Yang and embarrassed them in front of everyone the other day.
Given their status, there was no way they were going to let things go.
Naturally, Glass Palace and Malevolent Earth Sect could not strike when Su Zimo was in Elixir Yang Sect.
However, cultivators of the two sects chased after him the moment he was out of the city!
Both Glass Palace and Malevolent Earth Sect had only sent a single person each. This was clear proof of how strong these two were.
In reality, if Tang Yu was here, she would have been able to recognize the two of them.
The cultivator from Glass Palace was Liu Yun and the one from Malevolent Earth Sect was Di Xing. At seven meridian Foundation Establishment, both of them were the right-hand men of Pei Chunyu and Xue Yang and possessed terrifying strength!
In the blink of an eye, Liu Yun and Di Xing had already arrived in front of him. They stood in midair on their flying swords, looking down at Su Zimo from left and right.
Liu Yun chuckled lightly with a mocking gaze. “Su Zimo, why aren’t you running?”
“Are you prepared to surrender since you know there’s no way you can run?” Di Xing’s gaze was ice cold.
Su Zimo smiled.
If he activated his bloodline and deployed Divine Steed Fleeting at full speed, these two wouldn’t be able to catch up to him!
The two of them descended slowly from midair, maintaining a fixed distance and were cautious of one another.
Liu Yun was the first to speak as he pointed to Su Zimo and said to Di Xing, “Fellow Daoist, let’s put it bluntly. The moment this man is dead, we’ll split the treasures in his storage bag evenly.”
“No problem,” Di Xing nodded.
Rolling his eyes, Liu Yun continued, “I want the long blood-red saber in his possession.
“If that’s the case, I’ll take the gigantic moon-white bow,” Di Xing replied.
The two of them were referring to the perfect spirit weapon, Blood Quencher, and the quasi-connate spirit weapon, Moon Concealment Bow.
Neither of them took Su Zimo seriously and were already discussing how they should split his belongings.
Su Zimo’s eyes flashed with mockery as he shook his head slightly.
Immortals and fiends were different.
Since the ancient times, the duty of an immortal has always been to exterminate demons and slay fiends.
But now, what difference did the immortal sect cultivator before him have with those of the fiend sects?
“What are you guys doing?”
Su Zimo asked indifferently.
“Oh, I almost forgot about you. Senior Brother Pei has a message for you.”
Turning around, Liu Yun let out a creepy smile and said slowly, “Anyone I wish to kill will definitely die!”
Di Xing’s gaze was cold as he said maliciously, “Allowing you a chance to be Senior Brother Xue’s guard was an honor for you. Since you don’t want it, prepare to die.”
Su Zimo laughed and asked, “Why didn’t Pei Chunyu and Xue Yang come themselves if they wanted my life?”
“There’s no need to use a sledgehammer just to crack a nut!” Di Xing’s expression was filled with disdain.
Liu Yun sneered, “Why does Senior Brother Pei have to deal with a nobody like you personally?”
Su Zimo laughed into the skies.
His laughter was deafening, shaking the void like a great bell.
Liu Yun and Di Xing felt a slight stinging pain in their ears!
Suddenly, Su Zimo stopped laughing. His eyes were bright and filled with killing intent as he shouted, “The likes of you two actually think that you can have my life?”
“Su Zimo, you’re too arrogant! You think that you are fit to challenge me just because you’ve killed people like Hu Meng and Chai Li?”
As a disciple of Glass Palace, Liu Yun was fearless as he took a deep breath and channeled spirit energy. Instantly, seven spirit meridians shone beneath his robes and rumbled furiously with a mighty aura.
“There’s no need to say anything else. Die!”
Su Zimo strode forward and whipped out Blood Quencher with a back hand. The blood beam expanded and enveloped Liu Yun and Di Xing.
