After settling down, Qin Wushuang summoned all five-major sealed spiritual beasts. The Sky Pilfered Mole would maintain a close watch on Landlord Zuo and his three subordinates.
Although Landlord Zuo was being controlled by the divine venomous insect, it would not be wrong to be careful. Qin Wushuang would not allow a single aspect to go wrong.
To make a move, the faster he carried it out the better. Through this feast, Qin Wushuang had gained a general understanding of this Sea of Bamboo Courtyard. In total, there were three elders in charge of this place.
It was apparent that Luo Yang did not hold a high position in the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. Or else, he would not be staying here to guard while the other two Elders were eligible to move freely.
Because of this fact, it had caused Luo Yang's mentality to become somewhat distorted. He had spoken his honest feelings to Landlord Zuo, the person he had met for the first time after becoming drunk. It was apparent to see that Luo Yang had accumulated so much resentment inwardly that he must vent to someone.
The more unstable Luo Yang's mentality was, the more chances for Qin Wushuang. After all, it would not be easy to capture Luo Yang alive and perform the divine venomous insect technique.
Not to mention Luo Yang's own powerful strength for being at the Profound Void Martial Stage, he was far more powerful than Luo Ting. There were also a lot of elite warriors at the Transformation Void Martial Stage in the Sea of Bamboo Courtyard. Most importantly, this place was not far from the headquarters of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. With the slightest movement, even stronger warriors such as those at the Perfect Void Martial Stage would come swarming!
Once one at the Perfect Void Martial Stage had come, to the current Qin Wushuang, it would be a total disaster!
Therefore, to deal with Luo Yang, he must make him fall into his trap unconsciously. He must never create a major commotion, or else it would only do Qin Wushuang harm.
Besides the Sky Pilfered Mole, the other spiritual beasts including Bao Bao and Lone had gathered inside Qin Wushuang's room. To avoid ears next to the wall, all of them switched to communicating by spiritual perception.
"Boss, that Luo Yang was somewhat drunk, tonight we can make the move!" Bao Bao suggested.
"For martial artists, especially an elite warrior of the Profound Void Martial Stage, they would not fall unconscious from drinking alone. In fact, Luo Yang's drunkness was only an impudent action to let out his inner struggle. However, his words have inspired me. It's apparent that Luo Yang is not very satisfied with the higher-ups of the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect."
Qin Wushuang said with a smile: "Look, the other two elders can move about freely. And he has to stay here to guard the place. What does it mean? It means that Luo Yang is not favored among the higher-ups. Or else, with his position as an Elder, he would not have spoken so many depressing words."
Everyone nodded and acknowledged Qin Wushuang's analysis.
"Do we make a move?" Lone had cared more about this.
Qin Wushuang opend that map given to him by Lu Xianlou and analyzed: "Look, the route drawn on the wall mural is this area on the map. We are currently at the Sea of Bamboo Courtyard. It's somewhat far away from that place. In between these two, there are at least three defense lines. Perhaps we can breakthrough one or two defense lines. However, it's not possible to break through all the way by violence."
If Lu Xianlou had grasped the lifeline of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, the people of the sect should not be oblivious to this life line.
If the sect knew about it, certainly they would guard it heavily. This way, to pass that route smoothly, it would be difficult for them.
"Boss, we can repeat the same tactics and lure away those defense lines like when we dealt with Luo Zhan. We have more people anyways." Bao Bao suggested.
Qin Wushuang laughed: "Regardless of how many more people we have, our numbers will not surpass those in the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. The answer lies with Luo Yang. Only when we acquire Luo Yang's Elder plate, that would truly be our pass."
Both Bao Bao and Lone's eyes shone: "Boss, so you already had a plan."
Qin Wushuang said with a smile: "If I did not have these plans, I would not have waste so many words with Luo Yang."
"Ha ha, Boss, let's make a move now. Although Luo Yang is at the Profound Void Martial Stage, he does not have any subordinates at the Profound stage. This is still to our advantage."
"Besides, the defense system of this Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect is tight on the outside and loose on the inside. After those layers of defense, when we arrived at this Sea of Bamboo Courtyard, it had appeared rather shaky."
"This is easy to understand. Since the exterior part was tight enough that a fly could not get in, it's unnecessary to have such tight security inwardly." Qin Wushuang used his finger to tap on the desk and thought with rapt attention. Now, the most crucial step was to acquire Luo Yang's Elder jade plate.
There would only be two ways to acquire the Elder jade plate. Firstly, they would kill Luo Yang and steal the plate. Secondly, they would turn Luo Yang into a puppet like Landlord Zuo.
Through an overall consideration, the second road had appeared more appropriate. They would be much more secure if Luo Yang took them into the mountain. Regardless of which path they took; they would be free of worry.
"Boss, only a little more than a month until the Celebration of Dead. We must make the move fast. The faster we make the move, the further we can escape."
"Let's just do it tonight!" Lone rubbed his fists and appeared extremely fanatical.
Qin Wushuang shook his head and said: "Tonight will not work, we must get to know all the details within the Sea of Bamboo Courtyard. We must find out all the precise details such whether there are other warriors, and when the two other elders will return. Once we make the move and an unexpected events occurs, it will lead to a chain of events spiralling out of our control and cause all ours plans to fall out. Remember, we do not have any room for mistakes. One single mistake, and most likely everyone will die here."
Lone and Bao Bao all calmed down and nodded. Yet, they still could not help but ask: "Then how many days do we need to wait?"
"Not too long, I will have Landlord Zuo ply Luo Yang with flattery and find out what's going on. At most, he will uncover all the information within three days. During this time, I will research the map of the Heavenly Sun Mountain with precision. For things such as how we should retreat afterwards, we must calculate everything adequately."
Indeed, they could not afford to lose, especially when they were in the territory of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect!
For this night, Qin Wushuang and his group did not make any movements and appeared incredibly obedient.
When it was close to the break of dawn, two ghost-like shadows left the guest room one after another. They returned to Luo Yang's room.
"How did it go?" Luo Yang's eyes had narrowed into a line and appeared to be resting.
"Elder, there are no movements. None of these people walked out the guest room.
"This way, this Zuo Yuting is rather obedient…"Suddenly Luo Yang opened his eyes, where were those traces of becoming drunk?
"Yes, no need to worry, Elder. Since Zuo Yuting is Zuo Shao's father, he should know that fiddling with tongue would be an arduous and thankless task. As he said, even if he was to tell tales, most likely the Dao Warrior will not need to listen to him."
Initially, Luo Yang was still feeling insecure after the feast. Therefore, he had sent someone to follow Landlord Zuo's party to the guest room and see if he would make some small moves.
This night of surveillance was not conducted due to his suspicions about Zuo Yuting's identity. Instead, Luo Yang was feeling insecure inwardly and was afraid that Landlord Zuo would spread his bold words spoken during his drunken state to others.
"Elder, let's see this guy's performance. However, I see that this guy should be a clever one."
Luo Yang nodded lightly: "It's good for him to be a clever man. I do intend to make friends with him, it would depend on whether he has recognized the situation."
Early next morning, after the morning routines, Landlord Zuo came to visit Luo Yang again. Of course, they had to exchange some conventional greetings. On the other hand, Luo Yang took Landlord Zuo and his group to walk around the surrounding the area of the Sea of Bamboo Courtyard. They would experience the marvelous scenery of this courtyard.
Landlord Zuo gave a long sigh: "This Sea of Bamboo Courtyard is a peaceful place. It should be good to spend one's retirement here."
Luo Yang laughed: "Even us Elders are not qualified to enjoy this treatment. This is only something enjoyed by core disciples. Once core disciples have grown and become an Elder, or Shakyamuni, they will leave the Sea of Bamboo Courtyard automatically."
"Ha ha, for sure there would be better places when becoming Elders or Shakyamuni. With the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect located on such a piece of paradise, there should be more than one place like this, right?"
"That's right, yes."
"By the way, Elder Luo Yang, I heard that there are three Elders in charge of the training regime for the core disciples at the Sea of Bamboo Courtyard. The other two should have gone to Wolf Ivory Peak, right? I am curious as to when they will return. I also have another meager gift to give them, and show my appreciation."
Luo Yang said with a light smile: "It's not yet six months. Since the core disciples cannot come down from the mountain, they cannot as well."
In fact, Luo Yang was feeling somewhat uncomfortable inwardly. When Landlord Zuo flattered him, he found it as sweet as syrup. However, when the two other Elders were mentioned, Luo Yang could not help but develop some mental association and form a comparison.
As if Landlord Zuo had learned Luo Yang's intentions, he gave a straightforward laugh: "Those meager gifts are to thank the Elders for caring for my son, Zuo Shao. Since I had become familiar at first sight with Elder Luo Yang, of course I should prepare another set of gift. By the way, Elder Luo…"
Before Landlord Zuo had finished speaking, he saw a disciple walking over from below the mountain. This disciple was Qin Wushuang and his friends' old acquaintance. When he saw this person walking over quickly, his heart almost sped up. Indeed, this person was Luo Yun.
Initially when he had gone to the human countries, he had shown off and appeared incredibly tyrannical before the Stargaze Palace. If Mu Rong Xu had not intimidated him, most likely the Palace would have suffered a major loss.
However, Qin Wushuang and his friends were presently dressed as subordinates of Landlord Zuo. Regardless of presence and appearances, they were completely unrecognizable from the past. Of course, Luo Yun would not recognize them.
"Uncle, Uncle!" Luo Yun walked over quickly. When he saw Landlord Zuo and the other unfamiliar faces, he appeared somewhat hesitant.
"What?" Luo Yang asked.
"Eh…"When Luo Yun looked at Landlord Zuo and his people, "Uncle, secret information has been delivered!"
"This Mr. Zuo is Zuo Shao's father, not an outsider." Luo Yang had said it deliberately and appeared as if he wanted to ingratiate himself with Landlord Zuo. In fact, Luo Yang knew that if it were some secret known by Luo Yun, it would not be some top-secret.
Indeed, up on hearing his words, Luo Yun did not reserve himself: "Uncle, Head Dao Warrior and his people have failed to catch him at the Danxia Prefecture. The elite warriors they sent to the human countries also gained nothing. Under immense rage, they attacked the Stargaze Palace, destroyed it all and left no one alive at the Palace…"
Luo Yun said with smiles of exultation: "Ha ha, Uncle, it's refreshing right? Initially, I should have been the one doing it. Unfortunately, that time when I had gone…"
