Outside the Qingyun Dao Sect, the group of people seemed rather mysterious.
They were clad in black and were walking towards the sect.
It was nighttime.
Daoist Tai Hua was standing alone on the rear cliff and gazing at the sky full of stars.
Since he had nothing to do, Daoist Tai Hua decided to do some divination for Su Changyu and the others out of boredom.
Looking at the “ominous” divination in the trigram, Daoist Tai Hua couldn’t help but seem worried.
However, when Daoist Tai Hua got an “auspicious” divination, he couldn’t help but smile.
‘Not bad, that means I’m quite lucky.’
“Heaven, please bless my disciples and get rid of the calamities they might face.”
Daoist Tai Hua muttered.
However, at this moment, he could not help but recall the past once again.
In his mind, he vaguely saw Su Changyu in the middle of the flood.
He could also vaguely see the scene when he first met several other disciples.
However, at this moment, the single file of figures had slowly arrived in the Qingyun Dao Sect
The men in black were all wearing masks that covered most parts of their faces, revealing only their eyes that were full of icy cold gazes.
They walked over and communicated with their divine senses.
“According to the intelligence report, Ye Ping, the only powerhouse of the Qingyun Dao Sect, is our target.”
“Kill all of them, don’t leave any traces behind, got it?”
The leader spoke in a gloomy voice.
The remaining twelve men in black spoke one after another.
Soon, a figure appeared in front of them.
It was not Daoist Tai Hua, but Da Xu.
As usual, after finishing his work, Da Xu came to the front cliff of the Qingyun Dao Sect to meditate.
Ever since he came to the Qingyun Dao Sect, Da Xu felt that he had found a treasure as all the disciples were actually experts with hidden talent even though they seemed to be good-for-nothings on the surface.
Hence, all along, Da Xu had been secretly observing the disciples.
He discovered that Xu Luochen and the others would usually spend all their time studying array formations and talismans besides meditation.
Hence, Da Xu felt that there must be some treasures in the front cliff of the Qingyun Dao Sect and that it was a land of good Feng Shui.
That was also the reason why Da Xu would meditate and cultivate on the front cliff everyday.
He hoped that he would one day be able to comprehend something or discover the secrets of the Qingyun Dao Sect.
Da Xu, who was getting ready to meditate, suddenly discovered a figure who was sneakily walking into the Qingyun Dao Sect.
In an instant, Da Xu perked up.
Da Xu frowned and hollered.
In an instant, the group of men in black immediately detected Da Xu.
“A fiend of the Nascent Soul realm?”
“I didn’t expect a tiny sect to be able to produce a Nascent Soul realm cultivator.”
“This is the Ghost King.”
The men in black immediately saw through the cultivation level of Da Xu’s main body.
They were a little surprised but they were not scared. One of them even directly sacrificed a treasure mirror that immediately emitted a ray of fiery red light that shone on Da Xu.
“Three-Spirit True Flames?”
Da Xu’s expression changed and he was so frightened that he hurriedly retreated. However, the mirror was extremely extraordinary as it emitted light so rapidly that it was difficult to dodge.
White smoke emanated from Da Xu’s body, and it looked extremely lethal.
“Sect Leader, the enemy is attacking, the enemy is attacking.”
However, Da Xu immediately yelled to remind Daoist Tai Hua of the enemy’s attack.
He and Daoist Tai Hua were the only ones left in the entire Qingyun Dao Sect. Although he didn’t know who the other party was, Da Xu’s first reaction was to quickly inform the Sect Leader.
The deafening sound spread throughout the Qingyun Dao Sect.
On the cliff, Daoist Tai Hua was still pondering and his expression changed after he heard the sound again.
‘The enemy is attacking?’
‘What do you mean?’
Daoist Tai Hua was dumbfounded.
‘Why did I get attacked by the enemy for no rhyme or reason?’
However, at this moment, more than ten figures immediately appeared on the rear cliff of the Qingyun Dao Sect.
Dozens of people surrounded Daoist Tai Hua and also brought Da Xu over.
“Where is Ye Ping?”
“Hand over Ye Ping, and you can be spared.”
Before Daoist Tai Hua could figure things out, those people had already appeared in front of him.
They were very strong and were on par with the Nascent Soul realm cultivators. Otherwise, Da Xu wouldn’t have been unable to retaliate.
Everyone looked at Daoist Tai Hua. After searching the entire Qingyun Dao Sect with their divine senses, they discovered that only Da Xu and Daoist Tai Hua were around.
At that moment, they could not help but frown and ask various questions.
When they were at the foot of the mountain previously, they didn’t dare to search using their divine senses as they were worried about alarming the enemies. However, they didn’t expect that Ye Ping wasn’t there.
“Everyone, what happened? Did Ye Ping get into trouble out there?”
“If he has, please forgive him. I can apologize to you on his behalf.”
Daoist Tai Hua had never seen so many people showing up aggressively before.
‘Why did this troublesome matter happen out of nowhere?’
‘Why did a bunch of uninvited guests suddenly show up here?’
Daoist Tai Hua subconsciously thought that Ye Ping must have created trouble and was thinking of making peace.
However, the leader of the men in black had an icy cold gaze.
He stood with his hands by the side. In his opinion, Daoist Tai Hua was just an ordinary Qi Refinement cultivator.
Hence, he didn’t have any scruples nor did he keep his guard up.
“There are some things that you don’t need to know. Now, write a letter to your disciple and tell him to come back. I can guarantee that I won’t hurt him. We’re just going to invite him to make a trip with us.”
His tone was calm and he made it sound as if there was just a minor conflict.
However, although Daoist Tai Hua was not a great cultivator, he still had experience in immortal cultivation, and he knew that something must be going on. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have gone to such great lengths and sent so many people.
“Everyone, I think there must be some misunderstanding, why don’t we sit down and have a good chat? If my disciple has offended you, I definitely won’t cover up for him.”
Daoist Tai Hua was still trying to figure out what was going on.
However, the latter shook his head.
In an instant, Da Xu shrieked in misery.
The red light of the mirror was shining on him and making him feel as if his body was in flames. It was a Dharma treasure that was meant for suppressing evil demons.
Da Xu’s physical body was smoking and he was rolling on the ground in immense misery that he could not break free from.
Daoist Tai Hua called out, and when he looked at everyone, his tone became weaker.
“Let’s talk things over calmly, don’t be like this.”
“What exactly happened? Everyone, please make it clear.”
Daoist Tai Hua was not afraid, but rather, he was at a loss for what to do, especially when he saw the way Da Xu was behaving. He was seriously heartbroken.
“Okay, since you are feigning ignorance, I’ll tell you.”
“Did you pick up an orphan more than 20 years ago?”
The leader of the men in black asked.
“Yes, but that wasn’t Ye Ping.”
Daoist Tai Hua nodded and replied.
“Not Ye Ping? You’re still lying to me, huh?”
The leader of the men in black said coldly
In the next moment, the light of the mirror became even more blazing while Da Xu shrieked loudly.
“I didn’t lie to you, Ye Ping is my most junior disciple. I didn’t even know him more than twenty years ago.”
“I’m really not lying.”
“Okay, fine, fine, I lied. Keep going.”
Daoist Tai Hua kept explaining while Da Xu kept getting burned. In the end, Daoist Tai Hua finally bit the bullet and falsely admitted to it.
