(NT: Well the queue isn't complete, but I felt like-'MGS crack must be delivered everyday to the readers' so consider this chapter as a treat from me. Second part coming soon. Enjoy!)
Chapter 167-1 - Poisonous dragon water control flag array
After beheading Luo Yifan and the other two truth level masters, Ye Xiwen did not stay there for a long time, he immediately plundered the wealth of these three people and quickly left. But, this time, the news of the death of three true disciple level figures was enough to shake up the entire Yi Yuan School and Tianfeng Hall.
One must know that there were only few hundred true disciples even in a large sect like Yi Yuan School and each of them were considered elite among the elites and were no different than extremely priceless treasures, nurtured by their respective sects over decades or even centuries. There were many true disciples who left behind soul jade slips in the sect, and in case a true disciple was to die, his soul jade slip would immediately break and alarm the sect.
Sure enough, not long after Ye Xiwen left, the entire East China Sea was in commotion. Three truth level masters had died at the same time, Yi Yuan School and Tianfeng Hall were extremely furious and sent many experts to perform a thorough investigation, but Ye Xiwen had already taken precautionary measures. He had already destroyed their corpses leaving no trace, so the experts could not find out anything!
But after all, this matter happened in the nest of pirates, although all of the members of Crazy Shark thirteen Pirates group were obviously already dead before the investigators arrived at the scene, but Yi Yuan School and Tianfeng Hall also needed to vent their anger, and thus, bad luck was about to befall the pirates very soon. Both Yi Yuan School and Tianfeng Hall mobilized large battalions, comprised of formidable experts, and they began a large scale cleanup operation in the nearby regions of the place where the incident had occurred. During this cleanup operation, a lot of pirate nests were destroyed and innumerable pirates were massacred in the process, but these experts did not dare to annoy the pirate groups that were originally part of the alliance of Ninety-Nine Pirates Union.
The so-called Ninety-Nine Pirates Union was actually the alliance of 99 large pirate groups that roamed fearlessly in the endless East China Sea. These pirate groups had formed a very formidable alliance named Ninety-Nine Pirates Union and roamed bravely in the waters of East China Sea. They had composed this alliance to strengthen the strength of pirates, they worked towards safeguarding the interests of pirates and Ninety-Nine Pirates Union also acted as the chief moderator and managed the fights between pirate groups. Generally when forces tried to make large-scale raids in the East China Sea in order to wipe out the pirate groups, they had to face severe counterattack from furious and formidable Ninety-Nine Pirates Union, but this time, the matter involved two large sects, if there was only one then there was a little scope of negotiation, however the matter involved two large sects of Great Yue State, and not just that, three truth level masters had died at once, which was enough to invoke extreme fury that could simply burn the heaven itself. Who would dare to step out and try to block such a raging fury, it could be said that these pirates who had to face the cleanup operation had a severe bad luck!
Other people thought that the two large sects were venting anger on these pirate groups, but only Ye Xiwen knew that they should rather vent anger in their own hearts because it was actually one of them who caused this incident though it was radically trivial to mention it now. The primary purpose of both of these large sects was deterrence, to deter annoying existences like pirates and use any excuse to do that, for example Ninety-Nine Pirates Union. Although it was only a loose alliance of 99 pirate groups, but its strength was very large, in fact, their overall strength was only slightly weaker than the strength of the five major forces of Great Yue State. It could be said that it was a very intrepid existence.
If it was a peacetime and the five forces combined their strengths and attacked Ninety-Nine Pirates Union, it would have been possible to crush them and remove their strong influence from the East China Sea, but at present, the situation was not normal throughout the Great Yue State and there was chaos spread everywhere in the state due to the sudden rising of Bai Mojiao organization, they were igniting trouble everywhere. At this time, the five forces needed to stay calm and stable, at least until they would completely destroy Bai Mojiao organization. Although the five major forces had always considered Ninety-Nine Pirates Union as a troublesome existence, but this was not the time to act against this intrepid force of East China Sea because there was a risk of this matter going out of hands.
After all, no one trifled with the members of Ninety-Nine Pirates Union, because there were several truth level masters among their ranks, if the major forces wanted to annoy them then it would naturally not be a minor matter and might cause a large scale disaster.
In this case, the two large sects were using this incident as an excuse and nice opportunity to perform a raid in order to reduce the strength of the Ninety-Nine Pirates Union, and on the other hand, they were also trying to deter these lawless pirates.
However, these pirates also precisely knew about this, so they were bearing patiently and were not sending their own forces to stop the cleanup operation because they knew that the two large sects were actually not trying to destroy them, this was only a warning.
If the pirates tried to take actions and retaliate, it might incite the sensitive nerve of these two large sect and annoy them, and at that time, there was a major risk that their retaliation would not only send these two large sects in a fit of anger, it might even induce a joint attack from other three large forces as well and that would ultimately turn into a mass-scale sweep operation against Ninety-nine Pirates Union.
This was the common will of the five forces, although their own duties were not small, but at this time, all of them were busy in the maintenance of stability and consistent prosperity in the Great Yue State, all the while safeguarding their statuses as the large forces and in turn also maintaining a balance of power throughout the state, so at this time, who would dare to come out and take the lead!
This cleanup operation was not only a warning for the Ninety-Nine Pirates Union, but it was also a warning for the various forces within and outside the borders of the Great Yue State. The might of the alliance of the five large forces of Great Yue State was huge. It was a warning for other forces that they must never provoke the formidable alliance of five forces of Great Yue State!
However, Ye Xiwen simply had no participation in the coordinated actions of Yi Yuan School and Tianfeng Hall because he was actually taking advantage of this situation and constantly raiding the pirates of several truth level pirate captains. He managed to seize a lot of spirit stones and he also amassed lots of heavenly treasures, many medicinal herbs that could act as raw materials for medicinal pills.
After plundering so many resources, Ye Xiwen sighed with emotion, he had actually started to feel that robbery really was the world's fastest way to earn money.
