At that moment, Dao Lord Scarlet Star was immersed in his sorrow and could not hear anything.
However, Dao Lord White Flames frowned and asked in a deep voice, “Which Senior Brother Nangong?”
The disciple replied, “Senior Brother Nangong Ling and Senior Sisters Liu Hanyan and Ru Xuan!”
This time round, Dao Lord Scarlet Star heard everything clearly.
He turned around and arrived at the person’s body in a flash. Grabbing the shoulders of the disciple with widened eyes, Dao Lord Scarlet Star asked loudly, “Are you saying that Nangong Ling and the others are still alive and have returned?”
“Yes, I heard from the patrolling disciples that Senior Brother Nangong and the others are heading towards the sect,” The cultivator was shocked by Dao Lord Scarlet Star’s behavior and replied hurriedly.
The news of Nangong Ling’s group of four being captured was still a secret and was not made public.
Dao Lord White Flames and Dao Lord Crimson Star were worried that this would cause panic.
The two of them merely instructed their disciples to keep an eye on Nangong Ling’s group of four.
Therefore, the cultivator did not know why the two Dao Lords were so agitated.
Without hesitation, Dao Lord Scarlet Star prepared to head out and welcome them.
The more composed Dao Lord White Flames held him down and reminded, “Hold on, it might be a trap!”
Dao Lord Scarlet Star was stunned for a moment before reacting.
This was way too strange.
Nangong Ling’s group, four Nascent Souls, were captured by a Dharma Characteristic of Hellfire Hall – how did they return all of a sudden?
With a calm expression, Dao Lord White Flames turned and asked, “Apart from the four of them, is there anyone else?”
“I’m not sure about that. I don’t think so.”
The disciple replied, “If there were outsiders, the senior brother who sent the message would definitely mention it.”
Dao Lord Scarlet Star was anxious and asked hurriedly, “Are the three of them injured? How are they? Were they coerced?”
The disciple was sweating profusely. “The message only said that Senior Brother Nangong and the other three are safe and sound. As for whether they were coerced… I really don’t know.”
Right then, Dao Lord Extreme Fire’s voice sounded in Dao Lord Scarlet Star’s mind. “Go and bring them back. This calamity should have been resolved.”
Although Dao Lord Extreme Fire did not know how Su Zimo managed to escape from the hands of Dharma Characteristic Dao Lord with Nangong Ling and the other three…
He guessed that only Su Zimo could create such a possibility!
In truth, Dao Lord Extreme Fire had already guessed most of it.
However, he did not expect that Su Zimo did not escape from the hands of a Dharma Characteristic Dao Lord. Instead, he killed the latter directly!
“Alright, I’ll go right away!”
Unable to wait any longer, Dao Lord Scarlet Star sped out of the sect in a flash.
Nangong Ling and the other two were already awake on a brand new spirit vessel.
After more than four hours of traveling, the spirit vessel was about to arrive at Hundred Refinement Sect.
“Little Uncle-Master, what’s going on?”
“Little Uncle-Master, what happened? Didn’t we fall into the hands of Hellfire Hall?”
“Little Uncle-Master, where’s that old fart?”
Along the way, ever since Nangong Ling and the other two woke up, they approached Su Zimo and chattered non-stop, wanting nothing more than to pry open his skull.
Even someone as quiet as Liu Hanyan could not sit still. Blushing slightly, she tugged at Su Zimo’s sleeves and asked softly, “Uncle-Master, what happened last night?”
Su Zimo had already transformed into his black hair and green robes. He merely sat in front of the spirit vessel and smiled exasperatedly. “I don’t know either. When I woke up, we were already on the spirit vessel.”
“Little Uncle-Master, you’re lying! I don’t believe you!”
Ru Xuan pouted in doubt.
Liu Hanyan tilted her head slightly and looked at Su Zimo unblinkingly with her beautiful eyes, as though she wanted to see through his secret.
For some reason, Liu Hanyan and Ru Xuan felt that this matter definitely had something to do with Su Zimo and was not as simple as he made it out to be!
A woman’s intuition was truly accurate.
It did not make sense either.
Su Zimo’s heart skipped a beat and he almost thought that he had revealed something.
However, he could not explain nor tell them about what happened.
Could he tell them that as a Nascent Soul, he displayed godly powers and killed off a Dharma Characteristic? Could he tell them that thereafter, he killed the remaining seven Void Reversions in a half-human half-dragon form?
That sounded even more magical.
Furthermore, he had no intention of revealing his identity just yet.
At that thought, Su Zimo could only grit his teeth and reply, “My cultivation realm is higher so I woke up earlier than you guys.”
Liu Hanyan and Ru Xuan were still in disbelief.
Compared to the two of them, Nangong Ling was clearly much more practical.
He stood by the side and helped Su Zimo out of the predicament. “Junior Sisters, don’t bother Little Uncle-Master anymore. There should be a peerless expert who helped us in this matter. That’s the only reason why we survived.”
“Who is that peerless expert? Why isn’t he showing himself?”
Ru Xuan pouted and asked.
Nangong Ling was embarrassed and speechless.
How would he know who the peerless expert was?
Ru Xuan turned around and glared at Su Zimo. “Hmph, Little Uncle-Master, don’t even think about hiding it. This definitely has something to do with you!”
“I got it!”
Suddenly, a thought flashed through Ru Xuan’s mind and she exclaimed.
Everyone present was shocked.
Ru Xuan approached Su Zimo mysteriously and said firmly, “Little Uncle-Master, stop hiding! You were definitely the one who sought out that peerless expert, right?”
Su Zimo: “Uh…”
After a while, Su Zimo’s heart skipped a beat when he saw that both of them were still pestering him. Suddenly, his expression turned unfathomable. “Alright, since you’ve discovered my secret, I won’t hide it anymore.”
Su Zimo coughed gently and said indifferently, “Actually, I was the one who killed the Dharma Characteristic Dao Lord of Hellfire Hall and the remaining seven Void Reversions thereafter before rescuing you guys.”
Now that Su Zimo said it as such, Ru Xuan did not believe him instead.
On the other hand, Liu Hanyan frowned slightly and fell into deep thought, as though she had to ponder over Su Zimo’s words for a long time.
Hundred Refinement Sect was right ahead.
All of a sudden!
The sound of clothes fluttering through the air echoed as a figure sped over and arrived on the spirit vessel in the blink of an eye!
Nangong Ling and the other two had just escaped death. Now that they saw Dao Lord Scarlet Star, they were naturally delighted and stood up to greet him.
However, right after, the three of them seemed to have thought of something and gradually reacted. All of them felt guilty and lowered their heads, not daring to speak.
Dao Lord Scarlet Star was initially worried. However, when he saw that Nangong Ling and the other two were alive and well without any injuries, his expression darkened and he was enraged!
“You three brats! How much worry do you guys want to cause?!”
After a brief silence, Dao Lord Scarlet Star roared and sprayed saliva all over the three of their faces.
Su Zimo looked at Nangong Ling and the other two and shrugged his shoulders, wishing them all the best. He hurriedly distanced himself from them, afraid that he would be implicated.
