Although Qin Wushuang did not encounter a major battle scene at the Profound Dragon Plain, as he remembered the deaths of those Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan disciples, waves of sadness overflowed from his heart.
He already realized that regardless of his willingness, he had been bound tighter to the war chariot of the Emperor Qin Clan. However, Qin Wushuang was self-composed in the face of it. He knew clearly the rules of this world. No eggs stays intact under an overturned nest. If the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan fell, their enemies would certainly start a major cleansing of all branches of the Qin Clans within the Xuan Yuan Mound.
This cleanse sweep through all branches of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan to the extent that any person with the surname Qin would suffer a calamity.
Therefore, regardless of what Qin Wushuang had wanted, this was the cruel reality he must face.
Standing at a narrow mountain pass not far from the border of the Danxia Prefecture, Qin Wushuang fixed gaze forward. He was waiting for news. He had already sent out Moon Palace Jade Hare, Sky Pilfered Mole, and Hissing Sky Phoenix out to a few different directions to scout the situation.
Hissing Sky Phoenix was the earliest to return. The information he brought back made Qin Wushuang feel extremely surprised.
"Master, I am sure that people of the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect are guarding all crossings and passes of the Danxia Prefecture. However, their people can only guard those significant fortress locations. For sure they cannot spare the attention for some of the smaller roads and passes."
Qin Wushuang said with slight smile: "It seems our whereabouts have indeed been exposed. However, for sure they do not know our exact appearances. Thus, this time, we must leave the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect empty-handed."
Within two hours, Jade Hare and Mole had returned. They reported to Qin Wushuang the precise situation they had scouted. Qin Wushuang opened the map and said with a smile: "Look, the layout of the Danxia Prefecture is in an open and export-oriented form. For us to leave its borders, we can go from any direction through this giant circular sector. According to the information you had collected, the northwest location should be the area with the least amount of guards."
"However, if we head towards the northwest to go to the Heavenly Emperor Mountain, we will be making some pointless trips."
Some sharp lights shot from Qin Wushuang's eyes as he said with a thoughtful tone: "For our next stop, we will not be going to the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan!"
"If not to the Qin Clan, then where are we going?" Bao Bao was full of questions.
"We are taking a round trip to that Divine Brilliance Prefecture." Qin Wushuang spoke with a cold tone. That sharp glint in his became even more fierce.
Going to the Divine Brilliance Prefecture!
Lone and Bao Bao could read the ruthless murderous intent in Qin Wushuang's eyes.
"Boss, are we going to stir up some major trouble at the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect?" Bao Bao asked with a surge of enthusiasm.
"Bao Bao, if we are always getting hit passively and waiting for their killing strike, we will always be in a passive situation. We will never be able to turn around the situation. We should instead attack!"
Qin Wushuang kept speaking: "Presently, since the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect has deployed almost all of their forces, their sect must be empty. Thus, as long as we find a opportunity, perhaps we will harvest some miracles."
Naturally, this suggestion made Bao Bao and Lone feel incredibly enthused. In fact, when they were always getting hit passively, they also felt suppressed.
If they could take the initiative to launch an attack and inflict some damage on the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, it would certainly be thrilling.
Bao Bao said: "Boss, in the past we had also taken the initiative to launch the attack, the results were strangely good. Additionally, there must be a reason for Senior Lu Xianlou to have given us that map. We should take a look. What if Senior Lu Xianlou have left some unexpected goods for us?"
These words were exactly what Qin Wushuang had in mind.
When he asked the advice of those five sealed spiritual beasts, of course they would not reject this idea.
Immediately, Qin Wushuang's group started to head towards the northwest direction of the Danxia Prefecture. Although theoretically, the defense around this area would be somewhat weaker, Qin Wushuang and his groups would not dare to be overly optimistic.
Of course, they had no reason to feel fearful.
Although a second rate powerhouse like the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect was extremely powerful, it could not match up to those first rate powerhouse. Of course, despite being a second-rated powerhouse, to the current Qin Wushuang, the strength of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect was still a gigantic existence.
Not to mention that super warrior at the Exquisite Mysteries Boundary, even one at the Perfect Void Martial Stage would make Qin Wushuang feel extremely uncomfortable. The Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect had close to ten warriors at the Perfect Void Martial Stage.
Plus twenty to thirty warriors of the Profound Void Martial Stage, such powerful figures have given the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect a high position in the Xuan Yuan Mound.
However, despite possessing such strong power, it was still difficult to simply hunt a person down across the vast Xuan Yuan Mound territory.
When arriving at the northwest border of the Danxia Prefecture, Qin Wushuang had come to a frontier town. At this time, all five spiritual beasts had transformed into human form. It was equivalent to having eight people in their group. Although they had attracted a lot of attention, it would draw less suspicion from the outside world.
After all, Qin Wushuang's group of three had been a publicly known secret to the Xuan Yuan Mound. As long as three people had appeared together, they would draw different assumptions.
This frontier town was called the Morning Sun Town. To the Danxia Prefecture, this little town could be ignored. To normal freelance martial artists adventurers, this Morning Sun Town was a rather important destination.
At the Morning Sun Town, a total of four people of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect had set up an ambush here. They were all at the Profound Void Martial Stage. Although the strength of this group was not super powerful, it was an extremely dazzling formation.
Compared to all the other Heavenly Luo sentries, this group was only at an average level. After all, they did not have one of the Perfect Void Martial Stages to assist them. However, to Qin Wushuang, four Profound Void Martial Stage warriors was no small challenge.
Of course, before Qin Wushuang and his group had come here, they already made all preparations and had a strategy to counter the situation.
At a mountain peak, west to the Mourning Sun Town pass, four Disciplinary Elders of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect gathered together. Among these elders, three of their surnames were Luo, the remaining one had the surname Zuo.
The leader was named Luo Zhan. He had a tall and lofty body, and scarlet eyebrows. Although this guy was at the Profound Void Martial Stage, he was much stronger than most people of the same level.
Indeed, this person was the leader of the four.
Luo Zhan opened a map and spoke of his analysis: "Look, departing from the Profound Dragon Plain, there were a dozen roads to get out of the border. Our path is one of it. I don't know why that in these past few days, I've been having a wonderful premonition that Qin Wushuang will pass through our place."
The other three Elders all laughed: "Zhan, this is just something your wishing for, therefore you feel this was your sense of promotion. Honestly, if that guy is truly coming here, we will bag this huge merit."
"Yes, in fact it is hard to believe, a mere kid from the human countries had sent our Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect into a big uproar. Indeed, it's a miracle."
"Whatever the human countries, it's clearly a piece set up by the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan in secret. Humph, Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan!"
"By the way, talking about the Heavenly Emperor Mountain. Our Second Dao Warrior went to pay a visit to the Thunder Sound sect and Heavenly Punishing Villa, I wonder how it went."
Luo Zhan said with a cold sneer: "Although they are powerhouses of the Heavenly Emperor Eight Gates, when dealing with the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan, they would undoubtedly feel the more the merrier. What problems would there be?"
"Zhan, say, if our Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect can grasp this chance and pull the Qin Clan down, do you think our sect has a chance to become one of the Eight Gates?"
Luo Zhan thought for a moment and said with a bitter smile: "It's not that easy to be one of the Heavenly Emperor Eight Gates. Perhaps, our Heavenly Luo Daoist sect can rank in the top twenty at the Xuan Yuan Mound. But don't forget, there are many first rate powerhouses that also eying the spot covetously."
There were twelve first rate powerhouses in the Xuan Yuan Mound. There were many ways to classify a first rate powerhouse. However, there was only one core qualification—the powerhouse sect must possess an elite warrior at the Supreme Dao.
With just one elite warrior at the Supreme Dao, even if it were just someone that had entered the Divine Dao, it meant that this powerhouse was ready to attain a higher level.
Even if they were inferior on the other qualifications and had less overall elite warriors, they were qualified to advance to first-rate status.
In the Xuan Yuan Mound, there were twelve houses that possess the Supreme Dao. Of course, these twelve houses did not include the totem Xuan Yuan Clan.
Since the Xuan Yuan Clan was a high and mighty entity that surpassed the natural order, it was unnecessary to compare to them.
Naturally, the Heavenly Emperor Eight Gates were all first-rate powerhouses. Yet the first rate houses might not be one of the Eight Gates. The competition for a position at the Eight Gates were extremely fierce.
Besides the Eight Gates, four other first-rate powerhouses eyed it covetously. The Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect was still inferior to them.
Luo Zhan was very aware of this. However, as long as the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect kept developing at its current rate, if the Head Dao Warrior entered the Supreme Dao, they were not far from that day.
While these four were learning from each other through martial arts moves, suddenly, Luo Zhan stood up and looked down. From afar, outside the Morning Sun pass, two martial artists talking and laughing was walking towards them.
"Someone is coming." Luo Zhan called out and the four of them jumped into the hidden forest. They pricked their ears, extended their spiritual perception and started to observe.
In a moment, those two had walked close. Seeing the actions of these two, they did not appear to be rushing as their travelling speed was extremely slow.
"Big Brother, do you really want to go to the Divine Brilliance Prefecture?" One of the pale skinned handsome youngster asked his companion, a slender guy.
"Of course, when did I ever speak of lies?" That slender guy answered.
"However, that Heavenly Luo Daoist sect is not an ordinary powerhouse. When dealing with them, I do not feel at ease inside my heart! Can we truly get that million crystal reward?" The young and pale guy still seemed somewhat hesitant.
"Rest assured, if they do not give us the money, I will not tell them the information even if they beat me to death."
Luo Zhan and the others were listening to the conversation between these two. Inwardly, they had an idea as they thought almost at the same time: "Could it be that these two guys know information about Qin Wushuang?"
Instantly, they listened even more carefully. That young and pale guy said: "Big Brother, speaking of it, that Qin Wushuang is rather bold. With people of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect everywhere, he dares to come."
"Humph, that kid is really cunning. It's a dream if the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect wants to use numbers to catch him. Ok, we must walk faster. Or else, ha ha…"
"Big Bro, I still don' t understand. Since you have the information, why not just find the person that the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect placed in charge at the Danxia Prefecture. Instead, you are going to the Divine Brilliance Prefecture, aren't' you giving up the place with closer distance?"
"What do you know? If I tell them now, they will catch that kid. And our contribution will not be shown. We must let Qin Wushuang get far, and we will tell the secret to the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. This way, it will show that our information is worth the money. Besides, only those Disciplinary Elders are here. I refuse to believe that they are able to pay for the million crystal reward."
Amidst their conversation and laughter, these two had walked passed.
