Of course, Qin Wushuang felt extremely joyful when he heard these two chants. He knew that the two Palace Masters had returned!
"Could the two Palace Masters have already killed those Elders?" While Qin Wushuang was thinking, the two chants had approached even closer.
"Another two Perfect Stages!" Zuo Tianci felt as if he had fallen into an icy well and was about to drown. When he remembered the words from the other party earlier, he felt even more despair, could those Elders have…
Two human Perfect Stage warriors and two spiritual beasts that were also at the Perfect Stage! That person on the slope was also wrapped in mystery and he had no clue about his exact strength. However, he knew that he would not be ordinary!
When Zuo Tianci thought here, how could he still have any intentions to battle?
"You know what, since I didn't see my fortune before the trip, this trip is meaningless. I will return to the Nine Palace and make future arrangements!" When Zuo Tianci thought inwardly, he chanted a few words and suddenly, he rolled the giant blade from his hand into a wave of yellow lights. When that swirl of yellow lights touched the ground, it disappeared like air without a trace!
Both Bao Bao and the Purple Flame Electric Beast roared and was about to charge when Qin Wushuang gave a low growl: "Let him go."
The two beasts knew that Zuo Tianci had used an underground travelling technique to escape when they saw the disappearing yellow light. However, this underground technique had been performed with a tool. He had travelled at a very fast speed to a deeper level of the ley line.
Although they were powerful, they had slim hope of catching Zuo Tianci underground.
Qin Wushuang said to Bao Bao: "Bao Bao, you are good at travelling underground, go around and take a look to see if Zuo Tianci was still waiting around and hasn't left."
Upon receiving the order, Bao Bao dived underground and started searching.
Soon, Zhuo Buqun and Tan Zhongchi entered into view and Qin Wushuang went up to them.
Just as these two was about to speak, they immediately stopped the act of speaking when they saw Qin Wushuang's hand gesture. Qin Wushuang send his voice directly to their ears: "Seniors, that Zuo Tianci escaped when he heard your voice. He is extremely sly. I am worried that he is hiding in the dark and has not gone far. Thus, I sent Bao
Bao to search."
Zhuo Buqun and Tan Zhongchi nodded and also sent their voices via spiritual sense: "When we chased after those eight Elders, we only caught to up to six of them. The other two escaped extremely fast and passed through the border of the Great Luo and entered the Heavenly Lake Empire. When both of us tried to chase, we discovered more troops waiting on all the roads of the Heavenly Lake Empire. They had locked down all the pathways heading out the Great Luo Empire! Me and the Second Palace Master were worried about some ambush and stopped our pursuit."
Qin Wushuang's heart sank: 'There are more ambushes waiting at the border?"
"Yes, to our estimation, they are mostly people of the Archaic Mysteries sect."
Qin Wushuang nodded: "In the past few days, Zuo Tianci had been restrained by Lone and had already lost his cool. For this battle, the Stargaze Palace has achieved a total victory!"
Zhuo Buqun and Tan Zhongchi were extremely happy and nodded. Just as they were talking, suddenly, Bao Bao popped out from underground and said with excitement: "Boss Wushuang, you worried too much. That Zuo Tianci kept travelling forward. At the least, he is now a hundred miles away."
Overjoyed, Qin Wushuang nodded: "Great, Bao Bao, Lone, I need you two do some more work. I need you two to conceal yourself in this Red Cloud mountain and observe for another three or five days to prevent Zuo Tianci from coming back. If this guy decides he hasn't given up and returns, you two will send me a signal. In this few hundred miles, as long as you send out your Spiritual Qi, the Stargaze Palace will be able to sense you guys."
Bao Bao laughed: "Sure, Senior Lone, what do you think?"
The Purple Flame Electric Beast cried: "I would only be afraid if that guy doesn't come. It's great if he decides to return in a swirl of wind! I did not get share of my adrenaline yet. Wouldn't it be good if I can tear down a Perfect Stage?"
Bao Bao said with a smile: "You will get your chance in the future. You are the formidable Senior Lone. When the time comes for Boss Wushuang to attack the Nine Palace, you can unleash your full power to destroy them."
The Purple Flame Electric beast looked forward to that as he said with a joyful smile: "I really do hope
hope that day comes soon."
Qin Wushuang said with a smile: "You will get your chance."
Then, he said to Zhuo Buqun and Tan Zhongchi: "Seniors, we've been away from the Stargaze Palace for a while. If we don't go back, I am afraid our colleagues will get worried."
Zhuo Buqun nodded: "With the Nine Palace defeated, let's go back now. However, since Zuo Tianci was defeated, he will not give up. Although the Stargaze Palace's immediate crisis has been temporarily averted, the road to the future is still long."
Suddenly, Qin Wushuang laughed: "Head Palace Master, Teacher. Since Zuo Tianci received a defeat out of nowhere, he was curious about my identity. He did not believe that the Stargaze Palace had the power to beat them. I think that he's mostly confused."
Zhuo Buqun's eyes lit up: "Oh? Could it be when we killed Dao Haitang, he still did not suspect your identity when they saw you using the Graceful Spiritual Bow?"
"I also thought about that. The person who saw the Graceful Spiritual Bow was Zhao Heng, Gao Yue and Zhu Dazhong. And at the scene, Zhao Heng and Zhu Dazhong had already died. Gao Yue was not there. Thus, naturally they could not be sure of this matter. However, if Gao Yue regrouped with those two Elders, he could verify his judgments. I only hope that Zuo Tianci did not go back to the Archaic Mysteries sect, but returned directly to the Nine Palace…"
When he said here, suddenly, Qin Wushuang's moved his eyes and an idea emerged from his mind: "Head Palace Master, Teacher, didn't you say that there are more ambushes lying in wait at the border? And they seem to be people of the Archaic Mysteries sect? We should get rid of them, and not rest until we've killed our way to the Heavenly Lake Empire. Let's clear that grudge together with interest!"
Immediately, this suggestion had received huge support from Bao Bao and the Purple Flame Electric beast.
After a moment of thinking, Zhuo Buqun thought this idea could work. He asked Tan Zhongchi: "Second, what do you think?"
Tan Zhongchi said in a low voice: "It will work. However, for this matter, it's not appropriate for us to show ourselves. It must be done by Wushuang and his two friends."
Zhuo Buqun nodded: "Wushuang, are you confident?"
Qin Wushuang said with a smile: "For sure, I will make the Archaic Mysteries Sect pay with interest."
Revealing determined looks, Zhuo
looks, Zhuo Buqun showed his imposing manner as the head of a palace. He said: "Wushuang, you don't need to hold back when dealing the Archaic Mysteries sect. We must let them know the price for selling out the east and luring the wolf into the den!"
Tan Zhongchi nodded: "The Head Palace Master is right. This time, the Archaic Mysteries sect lured the Nine Palace and without you, our secret force, the Stargaze surely would not have escaped this calamity. Thus, there is no need to show any mercy to the Archaic!"
Qin Wushuang nodded: "I understand!"
The relationship between the countries in the Tian Xuan Land was like this. Since you did not give me a path to live, I would do the same to you.
"Bao Bao, Lone, you guys would definitely be unwilling to wait here. You are interested in coming with me to the Heavenly Lake Empire, right?"
Bao Bao chuckled :"Of course. There's no way I wait here. It would be more exciting if we go to them!"
The Purple Flame Electric Beast cried: "Let's go, don't let those bastards escape."
Qin Wushuang cupped his hands: "Head Palace Master, Teacher, you guys go back to the Stargaze Palace first. I will go meet those guys at the Archaic."
After he had finished speaking, he left quickly with the two spiritual beasts.
Qin Wushuang increased his speed by using the Wind Walk talisman at full power. This time, the Head Palace Master had given each of them a Wind Walk Talisman before their departure. Usually, the Wind Walk Talisman only had three uses. He had used it once when leaving the Stargaze Palace and another time when coming to the Red Cloud Mountain. Thus, for this last time, Qin Wushuang did not hold back and used it to travel at a rapid speed to the border.
Last time, he had only used the Wind Walk Talisman that he acquired from the Eastern Friendly Competitions once. Qin Wushuang did not plan to use the remaining two instances of this talisman.
When he arrived at the sheer cliff area, Qin Wushuang slowed down a little. With Bao Bao who excelled at travelling underground, Qin Wushuang and his friends travelled with ease.
After passing the cliff road, Bao Bao scrambled back up from the underground and said to Qin Wushuang: "Boss Wushuang, the people of the Archaic have all retreated."
"Retreated?" Qin Wushuang frowned lightly, "Could Zuo Tianci have already regrouped with them?"
Bao Bao shook his head: "I don't know."
"Bao "I don't know."
"Bao Bao, use your fastest speed to catch up to the Archaic team. Eavesdrop on their movements and whether they had already regrouped with Zuo Tianci!"
"Ok." Without hesitation, Bao Bao dived back into the ground and travelled quickly.
Qin Wushuang and the Purple Flame Electric beast did not slow down either and quickly followed behind. They rushed towards the direction of the imperial capital of the Heavenly Lake Empire. For sure, the Archaic Mysteries sect was retreating to their headquarters. They should be able to catch up to them.
After having travelled for a thousand miles, suddenly, Bao Bao scrambled out from the forest next to them. He said with excitement: "Boss Wushuang, the main force of the Archaic is rushing back to their headquarters. They are on their way. It seems that Zuo Tianci did not regroup with them and has returned to the Nine Palace. The heads of the Archaic does not know the results of the battle. It seems they only received news of retreating. Thus, those Heads are all doubtful and are guessing about what is happening."
After hearing his words, Qin Wushuang was overjoyed: "Great, let's give them a surprise!"
That battle with the Nine Palace was the perfect opportunity for the Stargaze Palace to rise! For sure, the stage for the Stargaze Palace to ascend will be set here in this vast land of the east.
Qin Wushuang knew that it was the Stargaze Palace's complete victory by defeating the Nine Palace. And destroying the Archaic Mysteries sect would be the first step of the Stargaze Palace taking over the east.
"Let the Archaic Mysteries sect become the stepping stone for the rise of the Stargaze Palace!" Qin Wushuang was determined and increased his speed to catch up to the Archaic force with Bao Bao and the Purple Flame Electric beast.
In Qin Wushuang's mind, he had already drawn up a blueprint. This blueprint would ensure the Great Luo Empire would become an Upper Ranking Empire and would no longer look toward any other country for their opinions!
"Lone, this time, you will be the vanguard." Qin Wushuang said with a leisurely smile, "For every person of the Archaic sect, regardless of strong or weak, don't show mercy as long as they are Upper Sky disciples."
Hearing Qin Wushuang's instruction, the Purple Flame Electric Beast twitched his mouth: "Boss, when did I ever hold back? Ha ha, that's not my style."
After he had finished, he charged forward and disappeared into the forest.
