Like a heavy gut punch, this grievous news smashed into Qin Wushuang's chest viciously. If he had not been wearing his mask, certainly his complexion would be extremely distorted.
Not a single martial artist of the Stargaze Palace was left alive!
The core disciples and the higher-ups of the Stargaze Palace had retreated beforehand! However, there were still a considerable number of disciples remaining there.
As he watched Luo Yun's smiles of exultation, Qin Wushuang's heart was bleeding inwardly. If his rationality had not told him to stay calm, most likely he would have made a move now.
He clenched his fists inside his sleeves. He could barely control the rage inside him and he wanted to start the massacre now.
"Luo Tongtian! In the end you still made your move on the human countries! This way, I vow to never stop if I do not make your Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect disappear!"
An surge of absolute hatred and loathing violently exploded inside Qin Wushuang's mind, but could find no release.
The Stargaze Palace was the place where Qin Wushuang had grew up. His roots lay there! Although those disciples did not share much of a relationship with him and to the extent that they had ever interacted, regardless, they were a family living under the same roof.
They were to share the honor and the disgrace!
Feeling a pain like a knife being twisted in his heart, Qin Wushuang worked hard to suppress his rage inwardly.
For all this time, family and the Stargaze Palace were Qin Wushuang's two most cherished aspects of his life that were forbidden to touch. To him, if anyone had violated any of these two aspects, they were unforgivable.
And right now, he had heard Luo Yun bringing such shocking news! Qin Wushuang only felt a surge of blood circulating inside his entire body.
To Luo Yang, this news could be said to be an unexpected piece of news. He asked emotionally: "Luo Yun, where did you get the news?"
Luo Yun said: "When I was at the main palace, I heard a few trusted disciples discussing it with several Shakyamuni."
Luo Yang's joy suddenly vanished like smoke! Although the Shakyamuni held a higher position than Elders, he only learned the news at this moment when disciples to the Shakyamuni were talking about it.
It was apparent to see his position in the eyes of the higher-ups!
"Uncle, what's wrong with you?" Seeing Luo Yang's sickly complexion, Luo Yun could not help but ask.
Luo Yang shook his head slightly: "Nothing. Among the martial artists in the Stargaze Palace, were there any leader figures?"
"It seems those leaders had retreated beforehand. The ones that remained were all ordinary disciples. There were about a few thousand of them. Ha ha, unfortunately, for such feast, I was not involved!"
Apparently, Luo Yun was still harboring some resentment in his heart after having suffered a defeat at the Stargaze Palace in the past.
"With the leaders still alive, what use would it be to kill a few lowly disciples?" Luo Yang said with a cold sneer.
"That's also refreshing. Uncle, don't forget how the Stargaze Palace dealt with the Nine Palace Faction. Senior Brother Tianci got killed by those from the Stargaze Palace."
Luo Yang said coldly: "With the leaders still alive, no matter how many lowly and tiny individuals were killed, it will not help appease the resentment in my heart!"
Luo Yun laughed: "Uncle, since Head Dao Warrior had made a move on the human countries, we should just go to the Heavenly Royal Mansion and kill! What do you think?"
Luo Yang said coldly: "The one that had killed Luo Ting was Qin Wushuang. For the Head Dao Warrior to seek revenge, he should have make a move on Qin Wushuang's clansman. Disciples of the same sect, humph, they do not share much of a personal connection. If that all there is when they were killed. Would Qin Wushuang feel a throbbing pain in his heart?"
"Yes, since the person that had died were not his bloodline, he would not feel the pain!" Luo Yun added the details while telling a story.
Landlord Zuo stood in place embarrassedly and listened to them speaking frankly with no concern.
Bao Bao and Lone also looked at Qin Wushuang frequently. Clearly, they were observing his reaction and waiting for his order.
In the end, Qin Wushuang's rationality won out against his rage.
When they returned to the place they were staying, Qin Wushuang was dazed and sat down in a chair. He pressed down the table with his five fingers until a deep hand mark appeared.
"Boss, are you alright?" Bao Bao asked carefully.
"Boss, don't be too sad. When the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect went against the 10,000 year pact and made a move on the Human countries, it means Luo Tongtian has lost his calm! It's a good opportunity for us to deal with the sect."
"Gone, all those disciples are gone like this?" Qin Wushuang mumbled. Right now, he could not face this news calmly.
The news had come too suddenly.
"Boss, it's useless to feel sad now."
"Yes, Boss, you must pull yourself together."
Qin Wushuang had always been a person with strong character. Even at the most difficult times, he had never been so depressed. A few thousand of his fellow disciples had been wiped out in an instant. Without a doubt, the Stargaze Palace was in full desolation.
Most likely, this giant sect had lost most of their lifeblood and foundation.
Qin Wushuang felt that although he was not the one that had killed those disciples, regardless, they were involved because of him. However, he had no choice! Nor did he have the method to make up for it!
Compared to the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, the Stargaze Palace was too tiny.
The Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect could make a move at any time when they wished to deal with the Stargaze Palace! Even without Qin Wushuang, the destiny of the Stargaze Palace was apparent when they had offended the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect.
One could say that without Qin Wushuang, the Stargaze Palace would not even have made it through the disaster when the Nine Palace Faction had launched an invasion.
However, what about it? Qin Wushuang could not convince himself and could not let it go. Instead, the rage burning inside him had become even more thick.
Bao Bao and Lone were battle maniacs as they could not help but ask: "Boss, are you sure you are ready?"
They were also worried that Qin Wushuang would make a mistake since he could not control his fury at the moment.
Qin Wushuang took a deep breath: "Rest assured, I have never been more calm than at this moment! To declare war on the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, we will start with Luo Yang!"
"Bao Bao, Mole, just like before, you are in charge of luring the elite warriors next to Luo Yang. Jade Hare, get ready to perform the divine venomous insect technique. Lone is in charge of cleaning up the miscellaneous fishes if they are to charge in recklessly. Whether it be success or defeat, it will be decided tonight!"
"Boss, it's not me for speaking wrongly…"Suddenly, Bao Bao said, "Just in case, I'm saying just in case, just in case we fail today, what should we do?"
Qin Wushuang revealed a determined look in his eyes: "We will not fail."
Bao Bao mumbled: "What if there are accidents?"
This was testing Qin Wushuang's decision on the scene. After a moment of thinking, Qin Wushuang said in the end: "In the case of unexpected events, we will retreat immediately and not linger in battle!"
In fact, Qin Wushuang was feeling incredibly sorrowful when he spoke these words. He knew that this was his only choice. If they did not retreat in the event of an accident, certainly the only thing that awaited them would be a heavy siege and fighting to the end of their lives!
They must seek vengeance for the massacre that had happened to the Stargaze Palace. To seek revenge, they must first stay alive.
Only by staying alive would give them the chance to seek revenge!
This was a simple principle.
Qin Wushuang called Landlord Zuo before him and instructed him through spiritual perception. Landlord Zuo only nodded.
The night gradually winded down. In the backyard of the Sea of Bamboo Courtyard, servants appeared to be busy with their chores. With a fantastic mood, Luo Yang asked Landlord Zuo for drinks.
Of course, Qin Wushuang would not miss this opportunity. Since this back courtyard was somewhat serene, it would also be a great place to make his move.
When the subordinates had retreated, Luo Yang called him: "Junior Brother Zuo, please!'
Landlord Zuo said with a smile: "Elder, you are giving three feasts a day, I am truly overwhelmed by the favor. For this favor, I will definitely repay you well."
"What are you talking about, I had also become familiar with you the first sight, come, drink!"
After they had tipped cups once, Landlord Zuo stood up to refill the drinks for Luo Yang. However, a subordinate next to Luo Yang walked up and took the job from Landlord Zuo.
"Mr. Zuo, for such trivial matter, let us do it."
Landlord Zuo laughed and let go the handle of the alcohol pot. Then, that subordinate refilled the alcohol for both cups. Luo Yang said with a laugh: "Junior Brother Zuo, today, I am very happy. I have always held a hatred for the Stargaze Palace in my heart. Although this time they were not completely rooted out, it has mollified some of my resentment. For this grand and merry news, cheers!"
After drinking several cups, suddenly, everyone at the scene felt some slight movements from the ground. This surge of movements shook the cups on the table, causing a "rumbling" sound.
"What's going on?" Luo Yang appeared somewhat in a panic. He spread his spiritual perception and started to search for the cause.
At this time, suddenly the alcohol pot on the table leaned over and fell to the side of Landlord Zuo. With his sharp eyes and deft movements, a subordinate next to Landlord Zuo caught it steadily just before the pot was about to drop to the ground. He straightened his body and put the alcohol pot back in its original place.
Landlord Zuo said with surprise: "Could there be an earthquake?"
Suddenly, a flash of light brushed across Luo Yang's eyes as he looked towards the east side: "Go, there are some movements in that direction, go and look!"
"And to the north side!"
There were four personal subordinates next to Luo Yang. With two gone, two remained to stick to Luo Yang.
At this time, the strength of the tremors had gradually weakened. Finally, everything became calm again.
Landlord Zuo said as if relieved from the burden: "It finally stopped, Elder, could it not be an invasion of the enemies?"
Luo Yang laughed: "Invasion of enemies? If they are enemies, why would they come to this Sea of Bamboo Courtyard? Most likely it's some spiritual beast passing the Wolf Ivory Peak."
Seeing Luo Yang's unperturbed expression, certainly the matter with spiritual beasts running down from the Wolf Ivory Peak had often occurred.
"Come come come, drink, ease the shock." Landlord Zuo laughed and again, he lifted the alcohol pot. This time, although Luo Yang's two subordinates wanted to help, their movements were not as fast as Landlord Zuo. Seeing that he already filled the cup, they said nothing.
Once again, three drinks had went down the stomach consecutively. Landlord Zuo could not help but ask: "Elder Luo, how come the two friends went out to chase are not coming back, should I send my people to look?"
Luo Yang said with an uncaring tone: "No need, they will not be lost. You see that this Heavenly Sun Mountain may be huge in scope, in fact it's much safer than the outside! Whoever does not have eyes, they would be seeking their own death."
While he spoke, suddenly, Luo Yang felt his blood and spiritual Qi surging. As his expression slightly changed, he looked back and saw that his two subordinates had dropped to the ground softly.
He immediately realized that something was wrong. Just when he was about to stand, he suddenly felt that the spiritual Qi in his Dantian was empty!
Landlord Zuo still showed a calm and collected smile. However, in the eyes of Luo Yang, this smiling face seemed extremely malevolent. His face was clear for a moment, and vague in another moment…
"You…"Luo Yang pointed at Landlord Zuo.
Without having even drawn blood, this Luo Yang had fallen. Qin Wushuang made a hand gesture and instructed: "Precious Pig, Mystical Horse, go and provide support. Don't create a big commotion and just take care of those two subordinates who went out to chase. Then, return to the room, do not move anything here! Just make it look like the feast had ended!"
"Take him back to the room!" With Luo Yang captured, Qin Wushuang had become much calmer!
