The situation turned tense for a brief moment with the inclusion of Snowdrift Valley.
Duan Qingping and the others did not dare to behave recklessly after Ling Han brought out the name of Perfected Lord Luo Xue.
Perfected Lord Luo Xue was a top cultivator of the Nascent Soul with frightening strength. In fact, she had a shot at becoming this generation’s titular disciple of Snowdrift Valley!
Even the Nascent Souls backing Duan Qingping and the others were cautious towards dealing with Perfected Lord Luo Xue.
The four terrifying auras engaged in a stand-off in midair for a long time before dissipating gradually.
Thereafter, the expressions of Duan Qingping and the others changed, as though they had obtained instructions.
Wu Feng was indignant as he gripped his fists and glared at Su Zimo and monkey before harrumphing.
After a moment of silence, Duan Qingping said with cupped fists, “Since that’s the case, we won’t insist on it. However, I’ve got to remind you, Fellow Daoist Su, there are many people who harbor intentions towards you in Myriad Phenomenon City. You’ve got to watch out,”
Although Duan Qingping did not pinpoint anyone, he was clearly referring to Snowdrift Valley!
“Duan Qingping, what are you implying?!”
Ling Han hollered with a cold gaze, “If you have anything on your mind, say it! Don’t beat around the bush!”
“Heh, I didn’t mention who those people were. Why are you getting worked up, Fellow Daoist Ling Han?”
Duan Qingping chuckled softly and turned to leave with everyone from Clear Wind Temple without saying anything more.
The cultivators of Zephyr Thunder Palace and Purple Firmament Sect followed soon after.
Ling Han turned to Su Zimo and asked softly with an inquiring look, “Fellow Daoist Su, follow me?”
This time round, Su Zimo nodded without hesitation.
He could naturally tell that Duan Qingping was trying to sow discord between them.
At the same time, he did not have any deep feud with Snowdrift Valley.
The only thing that struck out was that Ling Han was injured by Su Zimo beneath the Human Emperor’s Palace 20 years ago.
The crowd that was spectating dispersed as Su Zimo’s group departed. However, everyone was clear that there would definitely be no peace in Myriad Phenomenon City from this day forth!
The entire journey was silent.
Under Ling Han’s lead, Su Zimo’s group arrived at Snowdrift Valley’s residence before long.
The area occupied by the residence was extremely huge and a snowy field with a freezing temperature could be seen immediately upon crossing the gates!
There were crystal snowflakes falling from the skies.
Beneath their feet was white snow that crunched with every single step they took.
The group of them crossed the snow and arrived at a gigantic palace in the depths before long.
Before Ling Han could report their arrival, a cold voice sounded from within, “Come on in.”
Su Zimo did not hesitate and entered with monkey and the others, looking towards a woman who was not far away immediately.
She looked extremely young and had hair that was as black as ink. Her robes resembled snow, her complexion was smooth and her bones and muscles looked coldly – she was like a fairy from the moon palace without any warmth at all!
Little Fox could not help but remark softly.
If nothing was wrong, this should be Perfected Lord Luo Xue of Snowdrift Valley!
The eyes of the white-robed woman shone brightly and looked at Su Zimo without blinking.
For some unknown reason, Little Fatty, Shi Jian and the others felt an uneasy nervousness being gazed at like that.
Monkey reared his head and tried his best not to meet the white-robed woman’s eyes.
Even for the spirit tiger who was normally incapacitated at the sight of a beauty, he lowered his head at the moment without any vile thoughts, resembling a composed old monk.
Qing Qing, Little Fox and the others averted their gazes instinctively as well.
Su Zimo was the only one who stared at the white-robed woman quietly with a calm expression.
A moment later, the white-robed woman nodded and looked back as an imperceivable hint of admiration flashed through her eyes. “I am Luo Xue. Everyone, have a seat, there’s no need to be uptight.”
At that moment, Little Fatty and the others finally heaved a breath of relief.
Unknowingly, their backs were drenched in cold sweat!
The chair beneath Perfected Lord Luo Xue was sculpted from a gigantic ice block and was transparent with a cold chill.
However, she sat on it as though she could not sense the coldness at all.
Su Zimo said with cupped fists, “I am Su Zimo. Thank you for your assistance earlier on, Perfected Lord Luo Xue,”
Perfected Lord Luo Xue asked instead with a fake smile, “And you aren’t afraid that I might be harboring ill intentions?”
“Initially, I had reservations about that,”
Su Zimo smiled. “However, I was no longer worried the moment I caught sight of you. I know you will definitely not do that?”
“Hmm? Why so?”
Perfected Lord Luo Xue leaned forward slightly and questioned.
Su Zimo replied, “Instinct.”
Perfected Lord Luo Xue gave a smile as a form of silent acknowledgment.
“Although personal fights are forbidden in Myriad Phenomenon City, this is the territory of Snowdrift Valley and I’ve got complete control over your life! If I kill you right here, nobody can stop me,”
Perfected Lord Luo Xue said, “You’ve sure got guts for following her here without ascertaining anything,”
By her words, Perfected Lord Luo Xue was telling Su Zimo that that was the plan of the three major sects, Zephyr Thunder Palace, Purple Firmament Sect and Clear Wind Temple!
Su Zimo pondered for a moment before speaking, “20 years ago…”
“Nothing happened 20 years ago,”
As though she could read Su Zimo’s mind, Perfected Lord Luo Xue waved it off casually and interrupted.
“The immortal, Buddhist and fiend sects were underhanded in that fight beneath the Human Emperor’s Palace! Although all of them claimed to be paragons, they fought you together! Notwithstanding the fact that Ling Han survived, even if she had died, she could blame no one for her lack of skills!”
Perfected Lord Luo Xue’s words had the true magnanimity of someone from an immortal sect!
“Do you want to make a guess why I helped you?”
She shifted the topic and looked at Su Zimo, asking with a fake smile.
Su Zimo pondered for a moment before saying in a probing manner, “Glass Palace?”
It was inevitable for super sects in Tianhuang Mainland to hold grudges against one another.
The greatest opposition was between immortals and fiends!
However, even among the nine immortal sects, they were not always chummy as well.
Glass Palace and Snowdrift Valley had a deep feud with one another!
Su Zimo declared war against Glass Palace and annihilated their faction in the ancient battlefield immediately after he entered. It was only natural that Snowdrift Valley would feel closer to Su Zimo because of that.
“That’s one of the reasons. Another reason is because I was also curious personally and wanted to see you,”
Perfected Lord Luo Xue looked at Su Zimo. “I wanted to see how the strongest monster incarnate in history that defeated paragons of the three factions beneath the Human Emperor’s Palace looked like. I wanted to see if the brave, courageous man that dared to wage war against Glass Palace has three heads and six arms.”
Su Zimo smiled. “I’ve disappointed you then. I look extremely ordinary, much less possess three heads and six arms.”
“You did not disappoint me, you are good.”
Perfected Lord Luo Xue smiled as well.
Little Fatty shifted his beady eyes and paused for a moment on Perfected Lord Luo Xue’s face before looking at Su Zimo with an odd expression.
Monkey and the others were brutish and did not sense anything.
However, Little Fox had a nervous expression and gripped her paws instinctively. There was a hint of hostility in the way she looked at Perfected Lord Luo Xue, as though something dear to her was about to be snatched away!
