Disaster had exploded in an unpredictable instant. People of the entire Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect fell into a despair and anguished wails could be heard.
Zuo Lengshuang watched everything that was happening around him with disbelief. He almost thought he was in a dream. However, the panicking faces, terrified looks of the survivors, struggles from those in demise, anguished wailings, cries of pain, and sharp whistles pierced his eardrums and forced him to admit that everything was real!
Suddenly, a thought flashed across his mind—Subduing Devil Stone Tablet.
Yes, Subduing Devil Stone Tablet!
He remembered how the Head Dao Warrior had mentioned that the numerous mechanisms set by the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect at the Heavenly Sun Mountain utilized the spiritual qi inside the stone tablet that was the lifeline of the sect.
The underground spiritual qi inside that Subduing Devil Stone Table was vital to them. Because of this, they had built the tablet to gather spiritual qi. In fact, the "Subduing Devil Stone Tablet" was only a smokescreen.
There were no devils and no spiritual beasts. Those were all disinformation spread by the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect to pull the wool over people's eyes.
When he thought here, as if Zuo Lengshuang's body had been electrified as he immediately grabbed the communication jade token with a shiver. He must report this grievous news to the Head Dao Warrior, Luo Tongtian, immediately.
At this moment, Luo Tongtian was searching for Qin Wushuang. When he received Zuo Lengshuang's message, he almost thought he was joking. However, how could he make this joke randomly?
Plus, with Zuo Lengshuang's personality, he was not someone that would make jokes!
For someone as powerful as Luo Tongtian, he was also dumbstruck when he heard the news. Instantly, he had fallen into a petrified state.
"Head Dao Warrior, please hurry back to the mountain to oversee the general situation! The situation is very grave, the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect has lost control!" Zuo Lengshuang was speaking with an almost begging tone.
Feeling the blood rushing to his head, Luo Tongtian forcefully suppressed the shock inside his heart and asked with a low voice: "What exactly has happened? Who did it?"
Presently, Zuo Lengshuang knew nothing: "Head Dao Warrior, right now the entire Heavenly Sun Mountain is in a turmoil. I don't even know what exactly has happened, this is the most absurd catastrophe. It's probably the Subduing Devil Stone Tablet, and it's only my guess!"
Without needing to make further assumptions, the problem had most definitely come from the Subduing Stone Tablet. Feeling great pain from the bottom of his heart, Luo Tongtian even felt like he wanted to die.
This Subduing Devil Stone Tablet was built during the first day of the sect's founding. It had stood untouched until today and had been the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect's backbone.
All the spiritual formations inside the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect were connected with the Subduing Stone Tablet's spiritual qi from the underground. Because of this, to the outside world, the sect was a formidable fortress and displayed superior defense. For generations, the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect also taken the Heavenly Sun Mountain as a private property and closed it off.
The Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect had been proud of it all. Unexpectedly, their most prized historical legacy had been destroyed in one day!
Currently, he was about two to three hundred thousand miles away from the Divine Brilliance Prefecture. Even at his fastest speed, it would take him close to two days to make it back. Burning with anxiety, he had no other choice.
In the current situation where the sect was at the juncture of life and death, as the Head Dao Warrior, he had to make it back regardless of the consequence.
"The Subduing Devil Stone Tablet was set by the first generation's founding member and the work of a grandmaster at the Divine level. Without a reason or cause, it's impossible for it to be broken!" Inwardly, Luo Tongtian knew clearly that this must be a purposely instigated destruction!
However, to break that stone tablet, one must have the power of the Divine Dao. Since when had the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect offended elite warriors of the Divine level?
When he thought here, Luo Tongtian shuddered. He could not even keep thinking. If there were elite warriors of the Divine level targeting the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect, even if he were to make it back, he would be entering his own grave.
Currently, he was at the peak of the Profound Mysteries Stage in the Exquisite Mysteries Boundary. He was only one step away from the Divine Daoism.
This step of difference was the separation between sky and earth. It would be effortless for one possess the Divine Dao power to kill him, who was at the peak of the Profound Mysteries Stage.
One with the power of the Divine Dao had break through the restraint of the body and the existence with Divine Soul.
Such level of existence was matchless to what he was currently at. When he thought here, Luo Tongtian was filled with doubts and to the extent of some fear, uneasiness.
However, he would refuse to believe he would forget offending elite warriors of the Divine Dao. In the Xuan Yuan Mound, grudges do not form without a cause.
The Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect had always hid one's light under a bush and rarely made enemies. In the Xuan Yuan Mound, they had never engaged in conflicts with those sects with the elite Divine Dao warriors.
However, those sects with the super Divine warriors would not send someone to destroy their sect without cause.
Additionally, the Subduing Devil Stone Tablet was an absolute secret known only to the core of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. No outsiders would know that stone tablet was connected to the sect's lifeline!
"Could it be a communication between inside and out, as there is a mole?" Inwardly, Luo Tongtian's heart throbbed. Immediately, he remembered something as his eyelid jumped, "Could it be that Qin Clan of the Heavenly Emperor Mountain?"
"Yes, yes!" Luo Tongtian's expression appeared extremely distorted. He was sure that everything that had happened had come from the vengeance and the fury of the Divine elite warriors of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan.
In terms of when the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect had developed a grudge, it had happened recently. The sect had fought a few times with the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan.
However, these battles had occurred recently. Everything was caused by that Qin kid of the human countries.
"Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan, Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan…" Inwardly, a surge of malicious hatred filled Luo Tongtian's heart. If it wasn't' for him considering his lack of strength, he would have slaughtered his way into the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan. However, rationality still told him to not act recklessly.
If it were truly elite warriors of the Heavenly Emperor Qin that had made a move, the Sound of Thunder Sect and Heavenly Punishing Villa would not sit by and watch.
After all, those two sects were sworn enemies of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan. Each of their Divine Dao warriors restrained each other. If one had moved, it would be impossible those two powerhouses would not have received any news. It would just be impossible!
Even in the Xuan Yuan Mound, the influence of the Divine Dao warriors was astonishing.
When he thought here, Luo Tongtian took out the communication jade token. Just when he was about to make contact, suddenly, a rush of urgent information was sent over from the other side of the plate. It had come from the Second Dao Warrior, Luo Hengyao, whom he was looking for.
"Head Dao Warrior, what is happening? Isn't the Subduing Devil Stone Tablet the work of Divine power? How could it break without a cause? Was their damage to the ley lines which resulted in the devouring of the spiritual qi?" Luo Hengye uttered a trail of questions.
"Second, it's useless to speak these words. Let me ask you, did you receive any news whether the Divine Dao warriors of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan had moved out?" Luo Tongtian asked cautiously.
Apparently, Luo Hengye had also considered such possibility as he immediately asked: "Head Dao Warrior, I asked those leaders of the Sound of Thunder Sect and Heavenly Punishing Villa. They replied to me with firm answers that the Divine warriors of the Qin did not move. If it were those elite Divine warriors of the Heavenly Qin Clan, they would surely had known."
"Not Divine Elite warriors of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan?" Luo Tongtian was completely dumbstruck. If it weren't the moves of the elite warriors of the Heavenly Emperor Mountain, then he was completely confused.
He could not think of any other Divine elite warriors the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect had offended. For the time being, he had fallen into a haze as he could not grasp any clues with his muddled mind.
After all, he was the leader of a sect as he regained his calm after a moment. He said to Luo Hengye: "Second, you must go back to the sect. If you can, it would be best if you ask any of the elite warrior of those two powerhouses!"
Luo Hengye said with a depressed sigh: "I already asked for them. Their Divine warriors are not willing to step out. They are only looking at the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan. Apparently, they are not willing to provoke the other Divine warriors!"
"This way, why would we still seek to join their alliance?" Luo Tongtian could not help but feel somewhat anxious.
"They said that we can form an alliance to deal with the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan. For other things, it's not within the alliance's interest." Luo Hengye felt extremely helpless.
In the end, it was because the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect did not have enough strength and they did not put them in their eyes. If the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect had one elite warrior of the Divine level, they would receive a completely different treatment. Even if they could not sit as equals, at least they could negotiate their conditions.
Unfortunately, no Divine elite warriors had appeared in the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect for generations!
Despite feeling angry, Luo Tongtian had knew that in fact, these two powerhouses were keeping watch on the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan because they were also afraid of them.
Each of these two powerhouses only had two elite warriors of the Divine Dao. They would certainly not leave easily.
On the other hand, the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan had three Divine Dao warriors. If those two powerhouses were to split their forces, none of them would be the Qin Clan's competitor.
However, the combination of the two houses could suppress the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan. After all, the two powerhouses would have four elite warriors of the Divine Dao.
Compared to the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan, they had one more warrior. However, the differences in number shouldn't be underestimated. In the Xuan Yuan Mound, there were no more than fifty Divine Dao warriors. A single difference in the number of Divine Dao warriors possessed huge significance, it could mean the difference between death and life!
The attitude of the Sound of Thunder sect and Heavenly Punishing Villa were clear. They did not plan to get involved with the troubles of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect.
It meant that even if an elite warrior of the Divine Dao had attacked the sect, Luo Tongtian only had the option to save themselves!
When he thought here, Luo Tongtian was burning with apprehension. As he issued summoning orders to all higher-ups and disciples outside the sect to return to the sect to set up defenses, he also racked his brain for countermeasures.
Each of those higher disciples chasing Qin Wushuang also found it disbelieving when they had received the news. They could not accept this reality.
In the Nine Refined Mysterious Wind Valley, Bao Bao and Lone clawed through the ruins madly with tears filling their eyes. After Qin Wushuang had shot those three arrows, the Subduing Devil Stone Tablet had suddenly collapsed. With a flash of light, a gigantic whirlpool had engulfed the slope where Qin Wushuang had been standing.
As the sand and mud sank, Qin Wushuang was also caught by this surge of light.
Fortunately, Bao Bao and Lone were far enough to have escaped this calamity. However, they did not feel the slightest joy for having escaped such disaster. They only had a single thought in their head, and that was to dig their Boss!
After Qin Wushuang got drawn into the white light, with a muddled head, Qin Wushuang thought he was finished. However, after this white light had drawn him in, a surge of strange lights had emerged from his body that had wrapped around his body like an eggshell. Therefore, he was more scared than hurt, like a shaking ship in the giant sea.
Not knowing how long he had been tossed about, the motions gradually calmed down.
