Huai Ming, Huo Yi, Xue Feng, Bei Huang, Bai Kong!
When these five names were mentioned, everyone thought about monstrous crimes, blood, and violence at the first possible moment.
They were infamous villains that were wanted by the 10 great immortal sects, and they were ranked in the top 100. Every single one of them was dyed fully with blood and had committed heavy crimes.
For example, the most vicious amongst them, Huai Ming, was an evil cultivator that had slaughtered 3,000 infants many years ago and extracted their blood and souls as a sacrifice to cultivate an evil cultivation technique. His methods were so cruel that it caused others to boil with anger, and the crimes he committed were too numerous to be recorded.
But up until now, he was still well and alive. Firstly, it was because his strength was too formidable, and it was at the 3rd level of the Earthly Immortal Realm. Secondly, he was too cunning and cautious, while he moved swiftly and indeterminately from place to place, causing him to be extremely difficult to capture.
Presently, Huai Ming had appeared jointly with another four great sinners, and they'd blocked off the entirety of Marquis Wen's Estate, causing the expressions of everyone to become grim and be filled with fear and unease. After all, these were five cruel and vicious Earthly Immortal Realm experts!
Bloody clouds covered the sky while killing intent assaulted their faces, and the atmosphere in the entire Marquis Wen's Estate was strained to the limit.
Wen Tianshuo had a heavy expression that changed indeterminately, but he didn't fall into panic and suddenly shouted explosively. "Huai Ming, why have all of you come to my estate? Could it be that you aren't afraid of the wrath of the heavens!?"
His voice was like a thunderclap that reverberated through the surroundings. Everyone in the estate unconsciously felt much more at ease when they heard this. Right, the Marquis will be there even if the sky collapses, so why should we feel panic?
Not to mention that amongst the cultivators from all over that had come for the sake of the Junior Marquis's 14th birthday, there were a few Earthly Immortal Realm experts, so those villains had to weight their strengths before committing any evil.
"Hmph! Encounter the wrath of the heavens? I'm still fucking well and alive now, so what can the heavens do to me?" In midair, Huai Ming who wore a blood red robe had an icy cold and ruthless expression as he stood there with his hands behind his back and sneered. "Old Goat Tianshuo, if you continue feigning ignorance, then don't blame me for fucking washing your estate with blood without leaving anyone alive!"
Wen Tianshuo frowned and said with a deep voice. "I don't understand what you mean."
"You don't understand?" Huai Ming cackled as his eyes that were cruel like blades stared coldly at Wen Tianshuo. "Alright, I'll fucking say it one more time. Hand over the treasure map to enter the Sky Dao Abandoned Mountain, and me and my brothers will leave right away!"
"Exactly! Old Goat Tianshuo, you thought you kept it completely secret, yet you didn't know the few of us had set our sights on the Sky Dao Abandoned Mountain a long time ago. The forces you sent into the mountain to investigate have been fucking killed by all of us. Do you think there's any need to conceal it now? Quickly hand over the treasure map, otherwise, don't blame me for being merciless!" The nearby Huo Yi sneered.
The treasure map to the Sky Dao Abandoned Mountain?
The hearts of everyone was filled with shock when they heard this, and they revealed expressions of disbelief.
All of them were clearly aware exactly what sort of terrifying power existed on the Sky Dao Abandoned Mountain a very long time ago. Unfortunately, it vanished into thin air overnight, and in the past 10,000 years, there hadn't been a single person that was able to find a single trace of it.
But everyone firmly believed that the Dao inheritance and treasure vault of the Sky Dao Palace surely existed, and it just hadn't surfaced.
Now, Huai Ming had actually said that Wen Tianshuo possessed a treasure map to the Sky Dao Abandoned Mountain. If this were to be spread, the entire cultivation world would probably be shocked, right?
Instantly, the gazes everyone looked at Wen Tianshuo with changed.
Even Chen Xi himself was slightly stunned and said to himself, If it's true, then what's the Sky Key in my possession? Right, a map is a map, and a key is a key. Even if this Marquis Wen was able to find the treasure vault, he's probably unable to enter it…
Wen Tianshuo went silent, and then he said abruptly, "Exactly, I do indeed possess an incomplete treasure map, but I'm not sure if it's related to the Sky Dao Abandoned Mountain. But no matter what, I'll absolutely not hand over this treasure map to all of you."
As he spoke, he suddenly turned around to look at the three old men that were standing silently at the side. "Fellow Daoists Qing Ping, Hui Zhong, and Lou Qi. If I'm able to obtain your assistance this time and overcome this crisis, then I'll surely present the treasure map for all of us to inspect. How about it?"
After that, his gaze moved to look at Baili Yan. "Similarly, if I'm able to obtain the assistance of the two experts behind Young Miss, then Young Miss can similarly share this treasure map."
Qing Ping, Hui Zhong, and Lou Qi were the mere three Earthly Immortal Realm expects that had come from the various powers, whereas, those two old servants behind Baili Yan were similarly Earthly Immortal Realm experts.
Coupled with Wen Tianshuo himself, it would be an entire six Earthly Immortal Realm experts, and if these forces were to converge together, they would indeed have no need to fear Huai Ming and the others.
When everyone saw this, they heaved a sigh of relief while being unable to help but admire Wen Tianshuo's resolution because being able to make such a decision in such a short period of time was something an ordinary person was probably unable to accomplish at all.
"You don't know what's good for you!"
"Allying with others? Old Goat Tianshuo, you really won't give up!"
"Haha! This old goat thinks that one five of us have come."
"It's fine to tell all of you the truth. We five brothers have also invited the Chi Ya from the Cryptic Ridge, Spirit Profundity Temple's Zi Yun, and Jadelight Ocean's Lord Huang Jiao. The three of them are holding down the fort at the Sky Dao Abandoned Mountain, and they'll arrive instantaneously with a single call from us. How can all of you resist us?"
Huai Ming and the others roared with laughter, and they carried arrogant expressions and haughty airs.
When everyone heard the names Chi Ya, Zi Yun, and Lord Huang Jiao, their relaxed hearts couldn't help but constrict tightly while their expressions became unsightly to the extreme.
These three Earthly Immortal Realm experts were similarly villains that had committed countless crimes, and they were great sinners that had committed all sorts of heinous and unpardonable crimes. Moreover, their rankings on the Villain Rankings were even higher. Now, they'd actually joined forces with Huai Ming and the others, causing everyone to seem as if they were struck by lightning and feel unprecedented despair and helplessness.
They were an entire eight Earthly Immortal Realm experts with monstrous crimes, and this force was sufficient to sweep through any first-rate power!
At this moment, even Wen Tianshuo's heart went cold, and his expression was gloomy to the extreme.
"Old Goat Tianshuo, will you hand the treasure map over obediently, or do you want us to wash this place with blood before plundering your corpse for the treasure map? Everything is up to a single decision of yours." Huai Ming had his hands behind his back while cackling, and he had a complacent and arrogant appearance as if victory was within his grasp.
In the next moment, almost everyone revealed nervous expressions and had their gazes placed on Wen Tianshuo. It could be said that their lives were held in Wen Tianshuo's hands, and they were waiting for his decision.
Even Qing Ping, Hui Zhong, and Lou Qi had heavy expressions and were filled with anxiety because it was related to their lives, so they had no choice but to be nervous.
If it was possible, they would rather make Wen Tianshuo hand over the treasure map right now. After all, no matter how important the treasures in the Sky Dao Abandoned Mountain was, it couldn't compare to the importance of their lives.
This sort of thought was something most people that were present here had. It was even to the extent that the Junior Marquis Wen Hua was looking at his father with an expression of despair, and he felt unprecedented helplessness.
He was still young, only 14 years of age, and he didn't want to die just like this.
Amongst the people present, perhaps only Chen Xi, Baili Yan, and the two old servants behind Baili Yan were the most composed.
"Do you need me to help you escape? All you need to do is agree to tell me how you comprehended the Eternal Dao Scripture. Such a condition is sufficiently simple, right?" Suddenly, Baili Yan arrived by Chen Xi's side and said via voice transmission, "Don't worry, I absolutely have good intentions. After all, even though your cultivation is matchless amongst your peers, you're probably still no match for an experienced and brutal Earthly Immortal Realm expert. Even I don't dare guarantee being able to defeat them. But if it's fleeing, then I'm still able to accomplish it easily."
She swore to god that these words of hers were absolutely sincere. Unfortunately, she never expected that during these five years of time, Chen Xi's strength could already not be compared to before, and it was simply like the difference between the heavens and the earth.
Chen Xi glanced at her and said calmly, "I myself have something to say. If I'm able to kill these great sinners, then can you stop disturbing me in the future?"
"You…" Baili Yan was stunned and was infuriated to the point her plump chest rose and fell rapidly, and it drew out an alluring outline that shook the soul. She almost gnashed her teeth to the point of shattering before glaring fiercely at Chen Xi. "You don't know how to appreciate the good intentions of others!"
Chen Xi paid no further attention to her.
In the next moment, he'd already flashed out to suddenly stand in midair. The Talisman Armament was held up in midair while suffused with a pitch black and dim sheen, and there was a chaotic aura that seemed like the source of the world contained within it.
Baili Yan was completely dazed and said with a stutter, "This… This fellow…. Hates me that much? For the sake of making me stop disturbing him, he… He…even disregards his life!?"
The others within the estate were stunned and astounded. Why has this fellow come out abruptly?
On the other hand, those cultivators that attacked Chen Xi earlier were greatly delighted.
"Alright. We'll let this kid that gained his name from deceit to charge against them!"
"Right, we'll allow him to block them off for us first."
"He's really courting death, so who can he blame?"
"I'll surely take him as my master if he's able to survive!" The Junior Marquis Wen Hua clenched his fists tightly, but he knew very clearly in his heart that this decision of his would probably be impossible to be realized.
After all, these were five Earthly Immortal Realm experts with monstrous crimes on their hands, and there were another three villains that hadn't made an appearance. Even though he sensed that Chen Xi was ferocious, he didn't think Chen Xi could survive at all.
"Haha, am I fucking seeing things? A kid at the Nether Transformation Realm actually dares to come over alone?" When he saw Chen Xi appear abruptly, Huai Ming couldn't help but be stunned, and then laughed with sarcasm.
"Oh, his courage deserves compliment. There are very few young men like this nowadays."
"Bring it on. We can kill him as an example and make that old goat Tianshuo give up."
"Courage that deserves compliment? He seems like a rash and retarded young man! He charged out like an idiot while thinking he's very heroic, yet he doesn't know that this is the most foolish action. All of you look, even those people in the estate are laughing at him. He's truly fucking pitiable."
Huo Yi, Xue Feng, Bei Huang, and Bai Kong couldn't refrain from laughing as well, and they stared at Chen Xi as if they were looking at a dead man.
"Those that commit crimes remain at large, while those that do good aren't able to have a peaceful end. Enforcing justice for the heavens… It really must be done." Chen Xi couldn't help but sigh when he saw this.
In the next moment, his eyes went cold and flashed with a piercingly cold light while his bearing changed completely. He was like a divine sword hidden within an abyss that had started to emanate a glow, flicker with a sharp light, reveal its loftiness, and become fierce.
