After Qin Wushuang had hastily departed from the capital city of Danxia Prefecture, he found a remote place where he changed his entire outfit and put on a mask. Immediately, his entire appearance had changed drastically. He only rushed towards the Profound Dragon Plain he'd double-checked his disguise. He wanted to know desperately whether or not people of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan had made a move.
To him, this would be an immensely important piece of information. If it were people of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan, Qin Wushuang would not sit and let matters be. He would not let people of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan shed innocent blood and be sacrificed for this matter.
When he had almost reached Profound Dragon Plain, Qin Wushuang gradually slowed down his footsteps and took out the jade compass. He studied it for a moment and found the inner layer mentioned by Lu Xianlou. He used his finger to loosen it slightly and a silk weaved map scroll was ejected from the inner compartment.
Although this map was extremely simple and only displayed a few routes, it had given a clear description of the terrain. As Qin Wushuang looked at this map, it detailed a place called the Divine Brilliance Prefecture.
The Divine Brilliance Prefecture was the prefecture where Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect resided. It was a place of vast scope and had many of the powerful sects. One could say that it was a place that derived reflected glory from an illustrious son.
Additionally, since ancient times, the Divine Brilliance Prefecture had been the source of many legends. Many people were fascinated by it.
Therefore, the Divine Brilliance Prefecture was an extremely active prefecture in the Xuan Yuan Mound.
While Qin Wushuang was looking at this map, he could not discern which mysterious place this map led to. At the present stage, they were far away from the Divine Brilliance Prefecture. Qin Wushuang did not think too much about it and put the map into his storage ring. Then, he put the jade compass back into the ring.
In the blink of an eye, he had arrived to the nearby Profound Dragon Plain. The Profound Dragon Plain was located between two mountains. The creek placed in between the two mountains was named the Profound Dragon. The boundless and expansive valley around the Profound Dragon was named the Profound Dragon Plain.
At this time, many martial artists had gathered around the Profound Dragon Plain. Apparently, these people wanted to watch this major battle.
For your information, although the situation with the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan was dire, they were a first-rate powerhouse that had taken one of the seats among the Heavenly Emperor Eight Gates.
Now, when a second-rate powerhouse like the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect dared to bare their fangs at the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan, they had clearly offended the Qin Clan's power and prestige.
Everyone wanted to see what kind of methods the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan would use to deal with the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. If the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect was able to inflict heavy losses on the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan during their battle, it would be an incredibly great chance for them.
Perhaps, this opportunity would allow the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect to leap through the Dragon's Gate and become an unquestionable first rate powerhouse. It was even possible for them to seize a place among the Heavenly Emperor Eight Gates.
While the area was full of lively activities, not one of the personnel from the two parties involved were present at the Profound Dragon Plain. Only, from the battle remains of the present scene, they should have undergone a violent major battle.
Mingling with the crowd, Qin Wushuang observed the remains of the scene. He kept following the trail and searching for traces. However, he discovered that the combatants of these two powerhouses seemed to have fought deep inside the mountain.
Qin Wushuang chased the traces to the hinterlands of the mountain. The more closer he approached, the more Qin Wushuang felt nervous. Along the way, he kept seeing corpses laying by the roadside.
From the clothing of these bodies, although there were a greater number from the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, it seems there were also several disciples of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan.
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang's heart was feeling heavy and unwell as he observed the bodies of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan laying in the wilderness.
He would pick them up whenever he saw a corpse.
"Regardless of whether these disciples of the Heavenly Emperor had died for me, they had died at the hands of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. For this matter, I have an unavoidable responsibility. Although I do not have the skills to raise someone from the dead, the only thing I can do is to bring their souls back to their homeland…"
After he had collected close to ten bodies, he gradually lost the tracks of the battle. However, from the situation leading to this place, the battle should had been extremely desperate.
Qin Wushuang fell silent. After much consideration, he decided to stop hesitating and keep moving forward. Regardless of the situation, the earlier he arrived at the Heavenly Emperor Mountain, the earlier he could settle his cherished desire.
When he returned to the Profound Dragon Plain, many of the freelance martial artists had dispersed. Qin Wushuang no longer lingered and continued to travel forward.
Not long after Qin Wushuang had left the Profound Dragon Plain, Luo Yi had rushed to the place at a rapid speed. There was one lean figure accompanying him. He was the Fourth Elder, the one that held the highest position among his bloodline in the clan.
"Fourth Elder, if that person is Qin Wushuang, certainly he would come to this Profound Dragon Plain." Luo Yi said with a tone as if he were making a solemn vow.
However, that Fourth Elder said: "I only rushed over after you sent your news. Too much time has been wasted in between. Even if he had been here, he should be gone by now."
Luo Yi shook his head: "Fourth Elder, how could he be Qin Wushuang? Even if it were the absolute truth that can reach the heavens, I would not believe it."
The Fourth Elder said with a somewhat unhappy tone: "Luo Yi, this time, you, as a clever person, may become the victim of your own ingenuity! When you went to keep an eye on Lu Xianlou, you had dared to harass him in public! If you didn't have the name of Head Dao Warrior to suppress Lu Xianlou, I am afraid all of you would be dead people now."
Luo Yi felt immense shame, yet he still argued strongly: "Fourth Elder, I did it for my consideration to the Head Dao Warrior, and for our Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. If I let Lu Xianlou transfer the jade compass, then it would be difficult for Head Dao Warrior to obtain it."
During their conversation, suddenly, two figures appeared as fast as lightning from the hinterlands. It was two elite warriors dressed in disciplinary Elder clothing.
"Moon Shattering Elder, Cold Star Elder, how was the battle scene?" The position of the Fourth Elder was equivalent in ranking at the fourth among all elders. Thus, he held a high position.
Although these two Disciplinary Elders possessed many privileges, they would not dare to act outrageously before the Fourth Elder. They spoke with honesty: "There were a total of fifteen people from the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan. Only five or six people were left from our encirclement. These five or six people already escaped from our net. Our elite warriors also went to chase them in teams. However, since they can break through layers of blockade, it proves their strength is among the superior ones."
This time, although people were still chasing to kill them, the success rate was not high.
The Fourth Elder stopped for a moment and said to those two Disciplinary Elders: "I received orders from the Head Dao Warrior to command you two in assisting to kill Qin Wushuang. Here is one clue. Let Luo Yi explain it to you guys."
However, those two Disciplinary Elders said with a low voice: "Fourth Elder, I am afraid I must speak of one more matter to you guys. Along the way, numerous disciples of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan had died by the road from the battles. However, when we were on our way back, we discovered that those bodies have gone missing."
"There is this rather strange matter?" Fourth Elder could not but help draw a breath of cold air. This matter sounded extremely eerie.
Dead corpses going missing without a cause. And it were all corpses of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan that had gone missing.
"Well, did someone move the bodies of the Qin Clan deliberately? Or could it be that around this area, there were agents of the Qin Clan in hiding."
Suddenly, Luo Yi patted his forehead: "Fourth Elder, could it be that Qin Wushuang truly ran here?"
The expression of the Fourth Elder changed drastically: "Search thoroughly with all men! Also ask these bystanders along the way."
Those freelance martial artists were all called over. Initially, they did not wish to collaborate. However, after the strong pressure from the Fourth Elder, these people had a difficult time to breathe. Thus, they could only do as they were told.
"Listen, my Fourth Elder have some questions for you guys. Speak the answer if you know it, if you do not know, do not speak nonsense. If you know the answer, but choose to not speak, the consequence will certainly be beyond your imagination!"
Luo Yi appeared like the fox exploiting the tiger's might!
"A moment ago, did you see someone entering the deep hinterland?" Fourth Elder asked straight to the point.
"Yes, many people have gone in. However, it seems they went out after going in for a little bit."
"Then, were there a group of three people, or a suspicious person with two spiritual beasts?" Fourth Elder seemed extremely patient.
"Three people?" One of the freelance martial artist scratched his head, "I do seem to remember that there seem to be three people, that appeared extremely unfamiliar. These three people only went out after a long time. I remember that they seemed to have left."
"How long ago did they left?" Instantly, Fourth Elder was moved inwardly.
"Not too long ago, it would not have been more than an hour!" That person said confidently.
No more than an hour? Fourth Elder was overjoyed inwardly: "In one hour, no matter how fast they can fly, they would not have gone far."
Immediately he took out the communication jade and contacted the comrades of the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect to aide them. They would set up a checkpoint at the main fortress and passes surrounding the Danxia Prefecture.
Although the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect did not have sufficient manpower to the extent where they could surround the entire Danxia Prefecture, regardless of all things, it would be the best choice to set up a blockade at the main passes and fortresses.
"Fourth Elder, for sure those three are Qin Wushuang and his friends!" Luo Yi appeared somewhat excited. If it were truly Qin Wushuang, without a doubt, he would have counted as making some contribution.
The Moon Shattering and Cold Star Disciplinary Elders immediately accepted the order and followed them. These two Disciplinary Elders were all elite warriors of the Profound Void Martial Stage.
These two would only have the confidence to deal with Qin Wushuang when moving out together. Or else, they would not feel confident if any of them went alone.
The Fourth Elder was responsible for dispatching the troops, and these two Disciplinary Elders would be responsible for hunting the person. The rest of the people setting up the blockade at the border would tighten the net.
It was equivalent to setting a secret inescapable net, waiting for Qin Wushuang to swim in.
On the other hand, when Qin Wushuang left the Profound Dragon Plain, he did not let lower his guard. He knew that most likely, the disturbance at Lu Xianlou's shop had startled Luo Tongtian.
Now, he only hoped that Luo Tongtian would not come to greet him personally. Once Luo Tongtian made a move, the battle would become one-sided. They did not have any wishful thoughts about facing a major elite warrior that was about to enter the Exquisite Mysteries Boundary.
Thus, in order to evade Luo Tongtian's greetings, he could only keep hiding his identity. Only by ensuring the secrecy of his identity would he be safe.
As long as it was not an elite warrior of the Exquisite Mysteries Boundary coming, Qin Wushuang still felt some assurance. Even if it were one at the Perfect Void Martial Stage coming after him, he would always have the chance to escape.
