Mi Zhongye was also a tough figure. Although Qin Wushuang had suppressed his temperament, he was unwilling to admit defeat as he smiled coldly: "I only came on orders. The one who can make the decision is the First Martial Saint and the Emperor of the West Chu! Since the people of Bai Yue remains stubborn, then don’t blame others for dropping the stones!"
Qin Wushuang laughed: "Good good good, the West Chu are acting like robbers, and with reasons. You are using the First Martial Saint as an intimidation?"
"Not only the First Martial Saint, the Second Martial Saint also came to the Bai Yue. Now, he is at the Martial Saint Mountain. I believe he will be here soon!"
This was Mi Zhongye’s comforting words to himself and also as a guard. He was using the name of the Martial Saint to suppress the other party to refrain from shooting at the rat for fear of breaking the vase. Only this way, he would escape.
However, he had made the wrong choice.
Qin Wushuang’s face became serious when he heard the name of the "Second Martial Saint." Then, he nodded with a faint smile and mused to himself: "It seems that you are only an errand boy. The true figure is that Second Martial Saint."
"Humph, even if it’s only the Second Martial Saint, he would have no problem winning against your only Martial Saint! Or else, it would be our First Martial Saint coming here!"
Qin Wushuang nodded: "This way, your Martial Saint and yourself, a Marquis, had come together with the intention to intimidate my Bai Yue. And to get my country to cut away our land willingly, right?"
Mi Zhongye sneered and acknowledged this fact.
"Good, if that’s the case, then you don’t need to leave!"
As soon as Qin Wushuang’s words ended, he gave a long whistle and a wave of rich "Genuine Qi" gushed out. For this wave of Genuine Qi, he still suppressed the power to the peak of the Pre-Sky Realm and did not use his power from the Upper Sky Realm.
However, the power from this "Lion’s Roar" made Mi Zhongye’s face change as he knew that Qin Wushuang was going to make a move.
Only, it was a different matter for him to know about it and another to be able to resist.
All his subordinates only felt a wave of "buzzing" sound emerge from inside their heads. Instantly, they felt darkness swarm before their eyes. The sky seemed to have darkened, the earth spun around as everything beneath their feet was floating.
Next, like a graceful bird, Qin Wushuang shot downwards. He waved the long whip and instantly blocked those guards who was trying to stop him.
He shook his wrist lightly and that long snake shaped whip seemed to have come to life as it wrapped around the waist of Mi Zhongye accurately.
Qin Wushuang waved his hand, and Mi Zhongye’s entire body flew like a kite. Brought up by this power, his body had lost all control. He could not help but wave his arms helplessly in the sky.
While Qin Wushuang laughed, his body already dropped on the handsome horse that Mi Zhongye had been riding on. He pressed the horse with both of his legs and shouted: "Bastards from the West Chu, I will not kill your dog heads. Scram back to the West Chu. If you are one moment late, I will make your dog heads fall down. No one will be spared! I will take your Marquis Mi. Tell your First Martial Saint to come get him!"
Like an explosion from the spring thunder, his voice carried continuously to the distance and disappeared.
Only when Qin Wushuang had disappeared, those subordinates of Mi Zhongye had finally realized that the enemy had captured their Marquis. Shouting, all of them became extremely anxious and wanted to chase them.
Before they had taken a few steps, Emperor He suddenly shouted: "If you guys don’t leave now, I am afraid you will never have the chance to leave the Bai Yue!"
At this time, this group of people had remembered Qin Wushuang’s warning before his departure. If they were to leave any later, they would lose their heads!
Since the enemy even captured their Marquis, of course, he would keep his words! When they thought here, they knew it was useless to chase after him. Immediately, they formed groups and left without hesitation.
On the side of the Bai Yue country, people cheered. The echo of the sound shot all the way into the sky.
Indeed, this scene was too shocking and inspiring.
In the past, when had the Bai Yue showed off like this against the West Chu? Not only had he killed the enemy’s elite warriors, he was able to capture their Marquis. He had done it in a way that the other party did not dare to resist in the slightest.
This was the temperament, an enchanting power that would make one follow without a second’s hesitation!
Emperor He of the Bai Yue laughed and said in a clear voice: "People of the Bai Yue, this is our elite warrior and our martial soul! He would rather face the challenge upfront than compromise. Even against warriors strong as the tiger or wolves, he would use all his power to fight them! After this battle, it will be the time for our Bai Yue to rise and prosper!"
"Bai Yue will win, we will win!"
"Long live the Emperor! Long live the Bai Yue!"
Thunderous cheers echoed all around. The emotion of these people at the scene at had been pushed to the climax at this moment. The atmosphere had also reached the peak.
Now, regardless of climbing a mountain of knives or swimming a sea of fire, everyone would not hesitate if the Emperor of the Bai Yue were to give orders. They would not hesitate to go through water and tread on fire.
They would not hesitate to die for their country!
For their country, they would never give up until the last drop of their blood!
"Your Majesty, this time, Marquis Wushuang was headed toward the outside of the imperial capital. Could it be, he is going to the Martial Saint Mountain?" One of his close imperial guard asked in a whisper.
Emperor He fixed his gaze forward with determination: "Pass my order now. All the old territory of the Redwood Royal Territory will belong to the Heavenly Royal Territory. It will become effective immediately. All levels of officials, family powerhouses must obey the Heavenly Royal Household without doubt! Those who defy, die!"
This was an attitude of compromise with Qin Wushuang. It also showed his standing point being the Emperor. Only this way, Qin Wushuang would feel the sense of belonging to the Bai Yue. And it was the only way to make sure the Bai Yue would not fall during the moments of crisis!
Qin Wushuang dragged that Mi Zhongye and rushed outside of the city rapidly. Along the way, he did not meet with any obstacles.
When he had arrived at the city gate, those guards greeted him with even more respect when they saw Qin Wushuang going out of the city gate.
Qin Wushuang had arrived at the feet of the Martial Saint Mountain without taking any breaks. Then, he climbed down the horse. Due to the dangerous terrain of the mountain, the horses would not be able to go up. He could only walk with his feet.
Just when Qin Wushuang was about to leave while holding that Mi Zhongye, he suddenly stopped. He urged his Upper Sky Qi and sensed the surrounding and had in fact, found remnants of the Upper Sky presence. Apparently, this Upper Sky Qi had spread out and was just here.
"The Upper Sky presence could only be from Senior Brother Qiu and West Chu’s Second Martial Saint. Just which one is it?" Qin Wushuang examined it carefully and could not figure it out. This wave of Upper Sky presence did not carry any individuality and was only a remnant.
Without hesitation, Qin Wushuang rushed to the top of the moment after a moment of standing still.
After passing the sheer cliffs and through a few hills, he arrived before that lush forest. Naturally, Qin Wushuang could ignore this forest that was filled with traps.
He passed straight through it.
Along the way, remnants of Upper Sky presence were left behind. Apparently, some extremely harsh battle had occurred as some places had richer presence.
"It seemed that Senior Brother Qiu had fought with the Second Martial Saint in this area!"
Qin Wushuang did not hesitate anymore. He went through the forest and went straight to the Martial Saint Palace.
Currently, Martial Saint of the Bai Yue was inside the Martial Palace. He had a pale face and had serious injuries on many parts of his body. He was trying to use the Upper Sky Realm Qi to heal his wounds.
Of course, he got these injuries after battling with the Second Martial Saint from the West Chu. Fortunately, the enemy also suffered serious injuries and everyone was in the same shoes.
Now, the Second Martial Saint from the West Chu had already left a while ago and the Martial Saint was doing his utmost to heal his wounds. Suddenly, his ears twitched and he could not help but shiver.
It was because he was feeling a wave of Upper Sky Qi coming again. This rich wave of Qi was coming rapidly.
"How is it possible?" Martial Saint felt astonished, "He did not suffer less than I did. How could he have healed in such short time? Could it be, the West Chu had more than one Martial Saint?"
Inwardly, Martial Saint was feeling depressed and thought: "Could it be, the foundation of my Martial Saint Mountain will not escape its doom? The land of my Bai Yue, and all the people will not escape this fate?"
"Purple Robe!" The Martial Saint shouted.
"Yes!" Purple Robed Great Honored Warrior walked in from the outside with an anxious expression. Apparently, he also sensed the rapidly approaching wave of Upper Sky Qi.
"Quick, organize everyone to withdraw from the Martial Saint Mountain. Leave from the sheer cliff behind the mountain! Hurry!"
"Martial Saint!" The Purple Robed Great Honored Warrior hesitated. He could not abandon the Great Martial Saint.
"Don’t hesitate, quickly, go!"
The Martial Saint said with a stern tone and was about to swore. Suddenly, his face turned pale: "It’s too late. He already passed the forest and will soon arrive at the Palace."
When he said here, his tone was filled with sadness.
At this time, a clear voice sounded from the outside: "Senior Brother Qiu, I am here!"
"Qin Wushuang?" With a face of disbelief, Martial Saint became joyful, "It’s him!"
The Purple Robed Great Honored Warrior became even more euphoric: "Qin Wushuang has come, it’s him!"
Brimming with joy, Martial Saint sighed: "With his return, my Bai Yue is free of worry!"
A shadow flashed from the front of the palace. Qin Wushuang walked close: "Senior Brother Qiu, you are injured?"
"Ha! Wushuang, it is you!" Joyful color beamed between the brows of the Martial Saint. He was not only happy for the destiny of the Martial Saint Mountain, he was also happy for the entire fate of the Bai Yue Country.
"With the crisis approaching the nation, I don’t dare to not return." Qin Wushuang said with a serious face, "Senior Brother Qiu, was it West Chu’s Second Martial Saint that hurt you?"
Martial Saint asked with astonishment: "How did you know?"
"Ha, of course, from this guy." He threw Mi Zhongye casually on the ground, "This is the Royal brother to the Emperor of the West Chu, I captured him today."
"For sure, this person had come to our Bai Yue with ill intentions. Indeed, as I had predicted, he came to drop the stones and to loot a burning house."
"Indeed. This West Chu had come to loot a burning house. They were extremely greedy and asked the Bai Yue to give them the mineral resources from the Lotus Flower Mountain."
"The ambition from the West Chu is even more severe than the Great Wu!" Martial Saint sighed, "Only, the West Chu has a strong national power and have three Martial Saints as their protectors! We were both injured, and I could not keep him here. After this fight, I am afraid the West Chu would command their army to march south and attack with the Great Wu! Both the North and the West sides of the country will bear enormous pressure!"
Tossed by the wind and rain, the crisis of the nation was shown clearly at this moment!
