“Accursed beast, how dare you!”
Wu Feng had finally snapped out of his stupor and his expression was extremely grim. He glared at monkey with a deep killing intent and released his Golden Core’s spirit energy while summoning a flying sword!
Su Zimo’s gaze turned cold.
As long as Wu Feng dared to move, he would attack and crush this man to death with his palm!
Wu Feng’s aura had barely surged when he shuddered.
Su Zimo’s hands were tainted with the blood of many paragons; a single gaze from him carried an overbearing aura and a terrifying suppression!
Duan Qingping was the first to react as he held Wu Feng back by the arm and shook his head gently.
The killing intent in Wu Feng’s eyes dissipated. He took a deep breath before calming down and retracted his flying sword.
Monkey glanced at the two of them from the corner of his eyes before snorting and returning to Su Zimo’s side.
This was almost a perfect victory for him!
Although he was injured as well, those were external injuries and his bones and tendons were unaffected.
After he swallowed the snake gall, the greatest threat to him, the Hook Snake poison, was already dispelled.
Duan Qingping cupped his fists from far away and said with a smile, “Fellow Daoist Su, to think that not only are you strong, even your spirit beast is so terrifying. I’m impressed.”
Su Zimo frowned.
The fact that Duan Qingping was able to smile despite the immense losses meant that he was plotting something much greater!
Duan Qingping smiled. “Fellow Daoist Su, the reason why we’re here is actually to invite you for a banquet.”
‘Here it comes!’
Su Zimo’s heart skipped a beat.
This was probably their true motive!
Duan Qingping continued, “The elders of our three immortal sects have heard of your reputation for a long time as well. They’ve prepared a banquet specially for you and we’d like to invite you for a gathering.”
Needless to think, this was definitely a Hongmen Banquet of no return!
Xu Cheng of Zephyr Thunder Palace was nearly killed by Su Zimo.
The Purple Thunder Manual was in his possession as well – how could Zephyr Thunder Palace be so kind as to invite him for a banquet?
The battle beneath the Human Emperor’s Palace 20 years ago shocked the world.
Successors of the immortal, Buddhist and fiend sects were left dead and injured.
The successors of two major immortal sects, Purple Firmament Sect and Clear Wind Temple, died in Su Zimo’s hands!
In other words, the three major immortal sects before them, Zephyr Thunder Palace, Purple Firmament Sect and Clear Wind Temple, all had grudges with Su Zimo in one way or another!
It was easy for him to attend the banquet, but he would most likely be left with no choice after attending.
Naturally, there was no way Su Zimo would be deceived by a plot as such.
He sneered internally and was about to decline when Duan Qingping gave a sudden smile and said slowly, “This is the goodwill of the elders of our three major immortal sects. I’m sure you will give them some face, right, Fellow Daoist Su?”
Su Zimo’s expression changed slightly.
He felt a chills run down his spine after Duan Qingping finished speaking and he was alarmed internally as a cold killing intent engulfed him!
At least three killing intents were fixed on him at that instant!
Su Zimo finally understood the meaning behind the invitation.
There was no doubt that it was a Hongmen Banquet.
However, the invitation came from the Nascent Soul Perfected Lords of the three major immortal sects!
If he declined right away, it would be equivalent to disrespect towards the three Nascent Souls!
The Nascent Souls of the three major immortal sects would have a reason to attack him!
Private duels were forbidden in Myriad Phenomenon City.
However, those restrictions meant little to the Nascent Souls – they could make a move as long as they had a reason to justify it!
There were many seals in Myriad Phenomenon City that could prevent the detection from the outside world and it was like a pocket dimension of its own. Even if the Nascent Souls attacked with their full powers, they would not cause dimensional tears!
The Nascent Souls in Myriad Phenomenon City were not Sealers in their twilight years.
These were also no ordinary Nascent Souls.
They were Perfected Lords of various super sects and came from the immortal sects – these were people with countless trump cards and terrifying means available to them!
Naturally, at the end of the day, it was because Su Zimo did not have any powerful backing or the support of Nascent Souls.
He remained silent as his mind surged rapidly, considering the pros and cons of his options.
At that moment, a single wrong statement from him could bring about attacks from Nascent Souls!
“What a savage scheme, they’re not leaving Su Zimo any way out at all.”
“That’s right, he’s doomed whether he accepts or refuses the invitation.”
The crowd had gone silent as well and only a few cultivators were left whispering.
“Are you attending or not, hurry and reply!” Wu Feng hollered impatiently.
His killing intent had already reached its peak after the death of the Hook Snake that he had reared for many years!
Duan Qingping gave a cold smile as well. “Fellow Daoist Su, aren’t you someone that’s decisive to kill? Why have you gone so cowardly such that you don’t even dare to accept an invitation?”
“It’s not because he doesn’t dare to,”
At that moment, a woman’s voice sounded from outside the crowd.
Immediately after, dozens of female cultivators passed through the crowd briskly and the temperature on the long streets dipped!
The cultivators wore snow-white robes that were spotless and each of them had extraordinary features. Graceful and elegant, the only thing was that their expressions were cold as ice.
“Eh? Cultivators of Snowdrift Valley.”
“What are they doing here?”
“Could they be here to take revenge on Su Zimo as well?”
Many cultivators discussed softly.
Su Zimo swept his gaze across.
The leader of the group of Snowdrift Valley female cultivators looked familiar.
Running through his memories, Su Zimo recalled that person before long.
Under the Human Emperor’s Palace, there was a cultivator from Snowdrift Valley that attacked him as well. It was this female cultivator and her name seemed to be Ling Han.
Duan Qingping frowned slightly and cupped his fists before asking with a raised voice, “What did you mean by that, Fellow Daoist Ling Han?”
Ling Han walked closer with her group of cultivators before nodding to Su Zimo. She then turned to Duan Qingping and Wu Feng and replied indifferently, “It’s not because Fellow Daoist Su does not dare to accept your invitation, it’s because he has accepted Snowdrift Valley’s invitation to a banquet earlier on. You guys are too late.”
A look of surprise flashed through Su Zimo’s eyes.
He had not seen any cultivators of Snowdrift Valley after entering the ancient battlefield, much less agree to attend a banquet of theirs.
However, Su Zimo did not expose her and merely stood silently at the side as he watched.
He had a vague feeling that Snowdrift Valley was not here for revenge, but to save him!
Duan Qingping frowned. “Ling Han, what’s the meaning of this? The Nascent Souls of our three major immortal sects have invited him personally, what’s your business being here?”
Ling Han sneered coldly, “There’s an order to things. So what if you guys are from the immortal sects? Snowdrift Valley is part of the immortal sects as well! Furthermore, this is the wish of our elder, Perfected Lord Luo Xue!”
There was an obvious shift in Duan Qingping and Wu Feng’s expressions at the mention of Perfected Lord Luo Xue – a hint of cautiousness and fear could be seen from the depths of their eyes.
At the same time, Su Zimo could vaguely sense with his spirit perception that another aura had appeared in the voids. It was extremely chilling and protected Su Zimo’s group, facing the other three murderous auras in a stand-off!
This ‘aura’ was the spirit consciousness that only Nascent Souls possessed!
The three auras previously should have been from Nascent Souls of Zephyr Thunder Palace, Purple Firmament Sect and Clear Wind Temple.
The aura that came later on was from Perfected Lord Luo Xue!
