Chapter 968: Shangguan Zi
“No wonder he’s so fearless. So, he has helpers.”
Dao Lord Lan Yue had a calm expression as she sneered, “Scarlet Star, you think that you’re able to take him away from me with just the three of you Dharma Characteristics?”
“The three of us are enough.”
Dao Lord Scarlet Star turned around and looked at Dao Lord Lan Yue with a calm voice.
Dao Lord Lan Yue sneered once more. “This is Thousand Crane Sect. As long as I give the order, all three of you will have to stay here!”
“Girl, you’re way too arrogant!”
Among the three of them, an old man with a walking stick stood out, exuding a dignified aura.
Another old man asked in a deep voice, “Girl, where’s your master?”
Dao Lord Lan Yue frowned and flicked her sleeves. “Who are you guys? Do you think my master is someone you can meet whenever you want?”
Right then, the Void Reversion of the Ancient Array Sect exclaimed in disbelief.
The old man nodded and looked at the Void Reversion of the Ancient Array Sect. “Little Monkey, is that you?”
“It’s me, it’s me.”
The Void Reversion nodded humbly and hurried forward to greet with a bow.
This person had a sharp mouth and monkey cheeks. Little Monkey was a nickname for him that not many people knew of.
Right then, Tang Yu of Elixir Yang Sect exclaimed with widened eyes.
Tang Yu ran over to take a closer look and could not help but laugh. “Grandpa Ge, it’s really you. I didn’t dare to recognize you at first.”
“Little Tang, how old are you already? Why do you still like to dress up like a boy?”
The elder with the surname Ge had a doting expression as he chuckled as well.
“Grandpa Ge, aren’t you in seclusion? Why are you here?” Tang Yu asked curiously.
The elder with the surname Ge retracted his smile and said indifferently, “I’ve been in seclusion for a long time and my bones are a little rusty. It’s a good time for me to come out for a walk and meet an old friend.”
Dao Lord Lan Yue frowned slightly. For some reason, she suddenly felt uneasy.
Dao Lord Scarlet Star raised his voice. “Lan Yue, may I ask where Senior Shangguan is?”
“I told you, my master is in seclusion!”
Dao Lord Lan Yue said coldly.
Dao Lord Scarlet Star harrumphed. “Lan Yue, I arrived before this tea party began because I had something to discuss with Senior Shangguan. However, you rejected me outright. What are your intentions?”
It was only then that Su Zimo, Nangong Ling and the others realized that Dao Lord Scarlet Star had already visited Thousand Crane Sect a few days ago.
However, he did not manage to meet the person he wanted to and returned empty-handed.
“I’m the sect master of Thousand Crane Sect. I can make the decision for everything here!”
Dao Lord Lan Yue’s gaze flickered as her voice turned colder. There was a hint of anger in her tone that could be released at any moment.
Elder Gu, who was leaning on his walking stick, said slowly, “Girl, tell Shangguan that her old friends from Elixir Yang Sect and Ancient Array Sect are here to visit and she will come out of seclusion.”
“Old friends? Fufu,”
Dao Lord Lan Yue sneered, “Pardon me for being blunt. I’ve seen all of Master’s old friends, but I’ve never seen the two of you.”
“We’ve known your master for thousands of years. At that time, you weren’t even around yet!” Elder Ge blew his beard impatiently.
Dao Lord Lan Yue’s expression darkened completely as she said coldly, “What a joke! If any random cultivator says that he’s an old friend of Master’s and wants to meet her, wouldn’t Master be annoyed to death?!”
“Scarlet Star, I’ve been extremely tolerant on account that you guys are from the unorthodox groups as well. If you guys continue to push your luck, don’t blame me for being merciless!”
Dao Lord Lan Yue slapped her storage bag and threw a pink spirit crane into the air that turned into a streak of light.
A gigantic crane appeared and cried into the skies!
A crisp and clear crane cry echoed through Thousand Crane Sect.
Leng Rou’s expression changed.
This was a signal for the Dharma Characteristic experts to gather. Apart from those in seclusion, everyone else could see it.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Powerful auras burst forth from all corners of Thousand Crane Sect as figures rushed towards this area.
Before long, dozens of Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords descended and surrounded the Mystic Courtyard with unfriendly expressions!
The immense pressure reverberated through the entire courtyard and many Nascent Souls present no longer dared to speak.
Who would have thought that the Thousand Crane Tea Party would end up in such a situation where Dharma Characteristic experts were at odds!
Right now, both parties were ready to fight at any moment!
“Girl, what are you doing?
Elder Ge glared angrily and hollered in rage as he blew his beard, “How dare you try to attack us!”
“Shangguan Zi, why aren’t you coming out?!”
Elder Gu’s eyes lit up and his walking stick landed heavily on the ground.
Bang! Boom! Boom!
Endless lights burst forth from every corner of Thousand Crane Sect and shot into the skies. The terrain of the sect was changing!
“Light of formation patterns?”
Su Zimo muttered softly.
That was the sign of a massive formation being activated.
Dao Lord Lan Yue’s expression changed starkly as she exclaimed, “The Sect Protection Formation!”
Thousand Crane Sect’s Sect Protection Formation would definitely not be activated unless it was absolutely necessary.
She had not expected that this unassuming old man before her would be able to activate Thousand Crane Sect’s Sect Protection Formation through thin air!
“I was the one who set up Thousand Crane Sect’s Sect Protection Formation personally. How dare you attempt to lay your hands on me today, girl!” Elder Gu hollered with a booming voice.
Dozens of Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords of Thousand Crane Sect stood in midair and exchanged glances, looking hesitant.
From the looks of it, the old man had a powerful background and none of them dared to attack rashly.
Once the Sect Protection Formation was activated, even those in seclusion would be alarmed!
Right then, a loud bang sounded from the depths of Thousand Crane Sect.
A powerful aura burst forth. Against that aura, all the Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords present were as insignificant as ants.
Conjoint Body Mighty Figure!
Only someone at the Conjoint Body realm could release such a terrifying aura!
“Who’s calling me?”
In the blink of an eye, a figure arrived above the Mystic Courtyard, as though it was one with the world.
No one could figure out how the person arrived; it was as though she had appeared out of thin air.
It was a woman who looked even younger than Dao Lord Lan Yue. Her black hair fluttered and she was extremely beautiful. Her skin was fair and her eyes were filled with a mighty aura of indifference!
When Dao Lord Lan Yue saw that person, her expression changed and she bowed hurriedly with her head lowered, her eyes filled with endless fear.
“Hehe, Shangguan, you’re still so young.”
Elder Gu gave a strange chuckle.
Shangguan Zi shifted her gaze. When she saw Elder Gu, she smiled and said, “After crossing that step, my lifespan was extended so I naturally seem much younger now.”
At that point, the crowd no longer had any doubts.
The newcomer was a Conjoint Body Mighty Figure!
Shangguan Zi landed in the courtyard and looked at the two old men. She scolded them jokingly, “Are you two old fools tired of living? Why did you come over to my place to create such a huge ruckus?”
Although Shangguan Zi was cursing, her eyes revealed the joy of reuniting with old friends.
“Really, if you guys wanted to meet me, all you had to do was inform Lan Yue. Why go to the extent of activating the Sect Protection Formation?” Shangguan Zi shook her head helplessly.
