1858 Make a Commotion
San San fell into deep thought. “I didn’t hear them talk about it before. But judging from today’s situation, it should be the case.”
When they spoke of Blue Peak, Mo Yun and the rest had very different expressions. It seemed like they were long prepared.
“But I don’t know what they’re planning and what they want to do to Blue Peak…”
Chu Liuyue recalled what she saw today and raised her brows slightly. “Perhaps they already knew that Blue Peak suppressed that dark blue fame. However, they didn’t expect that fire to be more powerful than expected, so they were shocked.”
The few people who died at Blue Peak had quite high statuses in the Black Sword Sect. If not for something that happened later on, they wouldn’t beg Mo Lin and the rest and even shock Mo Yun.
Mo Yun clearly cared about Blue Peak’s situation very much, but he only sent them over. It was either because he didn’t estimate accurately at the start, or he wanted to handle it discreetly to avoid everyone’s attention.
But no matter what, the clear point was that the Black Sword Sect didn’t set their eyes on Blue Peak just today.
San San suddenly thought of something, and his eyes lit up. “Blue Peak isn’t very far from Clear Water Cliff. Could it be that they did this because—”
Chu Liuyue nodded. “How can people not be envious of you obtaining such a twist of fate at Clear Water Cliff? The Black Sword Sect is naturally not an exception. If we haven’t guessed wrongly, they should’ve discovered something at Blue Peak previously and planned to take it slowly. However, it was a pity that the fire directly exploded today.”
Hence, Mo Yun was so infuriated.
San San nodded in agreement continuously. “Master, you’re right! Recently, there have been many people coming to find treasures. I’m sure quite a few people have seen the incident that happened on Blue Peak. In less than a day, this news will spread far and wide in the entire Peach Blossom Dock.”
Even if Mo Yun killed them all, it was impossible to completely seal the news.
“What exactly… is going on with that fire…” Chu Liuyue crossed her arms and squinted her eyes slightly as she fell into deep thought. There are indeed all sorts of strange fires in the world, but I have never seen such a dark-blue fire. Besides, that fire is clearly the same as the one in San San’s body, but it wasn’t controlled by him.
“Master… when we fought that fire, I actually felt… that it purposely went easy on me…” San San hesitantly voiced the doubts in his heart.
Chu Liuyue nodded. Actually, she had previously guessed this. With San San’s abilities, it was very hard for him to contain the full attack of that fire.
In the end, after he set up the barrier, he actually managed to block it forcefully. This clearly had some issues.
If Mo Lin and the others had seen it carefully enough or had personally gone over to check San San’s wounds, they would discover that his injuries were far from serious compared to theirs.
“This also means that this fire might still be related to your small space?” muttered Chu Liuyue.
San San had a face of confusion. “Um… I’m not too sure about this either…”
After all, he hadn’t fully understood his small space.
“There is indeed a force suppressed under Blue Peak.” A clear and melodious voice sounded.
Chu Liuyue turned around and was rather surprised. “What did you feel?”
Rong Xiu nodded and thought for a moment before the corner of his lips curled up into a faint smile. “It’s very likely what the Black Sword Sect wants.”
On the other end, Mo Yun quickly brought Mo Lin to Blue Peak.
The two of them were extremely fast.
Mo Lin wasn’t as strong as Mo Yun. As he was previously injured, he really unleashed his full strength to catch up with Mo Yun at this moment.
His inner aura was chaotic, and his face became increasingly pale, but Mo Yun’s surrounding aura became cold and stiff. He didn’t dare say much and could only grit his teeth to endure it.
The two of them quietly came to Blue Peak the entire way.
From afar, Mo Yun could see the dark-blue fire burning brightly by the middle of the mountain! The more important thing was that quite a few people were already surrounding Blue Peak.
Their attention was clearly placed on Blue Peak.
“Why would this ball of fire suddenly emerge on Blue Peak for no reason? Is a treasure about to descend?”
“It might be… Anyway, this fire is very strong. Someone wanted to go over just now, and they were almost burned to death. Don’t you see that everyone is just gathered here, but nobody dares to go forward again?”
“I see… I think this fire came from within the mountain. Perhaps… there’s something hidden in Blue Peak?”
“Even if there’s really something contained inside, it might not be our turn! This fire is burning more and more intensely. I don’t know when it will be extinguished…”
“True gods might not be able to do it, but there are still legendary warriors, right? Oh right, why did I hear that there were also people from the Black Sword Sect here. Could this be their territory?”
“Pfft, if there’s really a treasure descending, only the fateful one can obtain it. That Black Sword Sect is amazing, but I’m afraid they can’t forcefully occupy it, right?”
The crowd partook in heated discussions.
The veins on Mo Yun’s forehead twitched harshly. The scene I didn’t want to see the most still happened! Now that so many people are gathered here, I can’t even kill all of them!
He turned around to Mo Lin, and his eyes were surging with murderous intent. “Such a major thing happened, yet you left so directly?”
They didn’t hide it at all! It was as if they weren’t afraid that many people would know about it!
The terrifying suppression descended, and it was as if a small hill was heavily pressing onto Mo Lin’s shoulders.
He swallowed the blood in his throat and said with difficulty, “…Deputy Sect Master, it’s not that we didn’t want to do it. We wanted to do it but couldn’t. This fire—”
This fire’s suppression had already exceeded the upper limit of their tolerance!
Of course, he knew how severe the consequences would be if word got around. However, the situation back then had already spiraled out of their control.
The only thing he could do was rush back as soon as possible and report to Mo Yun. However, he also didn’t expect these people to come faster than he had expected.
Mo Yun closed his eyes and took a deep breath in, barely managing to suppress his tumultuous murderous intent.
This place was near Clear Water Cliff, and there were indeed many people patrolling this area every day in hopes of receiving the same fortune as San San. It was normal that a sudden fire at Blue Peak would attract their attention.
“If this incident can’t be salvaged, you won’t even be able to pay back for it even if you die a thousand times!” Mo Yun lowered his voice, and every single word seemed to be squeezed out of the gaps between his teeth.
Mo Lin’s heart turned cold, but he could only hang his head. He knew that he was over.
Mo Yun turned around and rushed to Blue Peak at a higher speed. The most important thing now is to deal with that fire first!
Very quickly, someone within the crowd surrounding Blue Peak detected his figure. “Mo Yun is here!”
