2017 Trouble

At the mention of this, everyone’s anxious hearts finally calmed down.

Ever since they suffered a huge loss under Rong Xiu a few years ago, the entire Black Demon Hole had been recuperating.

The sect master cultivated in seclusion all year round, and his strength increased greatly. Now that they were up against each other again, it was still unknown who would win!

At the Yi family.

In a remote and quiet courtyard, it was cold and empty.

There was only one elder standing in front of the door, guarding it in boredom.

Ever since Yi Wentao came back, he had been staying in this room and had never come out.

As for the rest of the Yi family, they had never been here before—apart from Jun Jiuqing, who was now the head of the family. However, he only came once.

The entire Yi family seemed to have forgotten that Yi Wentao was here.

There was no one here, and it was very cold.

No one would’ve thought that Yi Wentao, who had been influential in the Yi family for hundreds of years, would end up like this.

Suddenly, the sound of something shattering came from inside.

The guarding elder frowned and went forward to ask, “Family Head, what’s wrong?”

After many years of getting used to it, he still called Yi Wentao ‘family head.’ However, they all understood that this title was meaningless to the current Yi Wentao.

“I’m fine. I hit the corner of the table and broke a cup.” After a while, Yi Wentao’s cold voice was heard.

The guarding elder nodded in understanding. “Be careful.”

He had no intention of going in to clean up.

He was the only one in charge of guarding the entire courtyard now. If it weren’t for something urgent, he wouldn’t have left his position nonchalantly, casually, and indifferently.

Besides… shattering a cup was indeed a small matter.

With that, he looked away.

Within the room.

Yi Wentao sat on a chair. The table he had just kicked down was on the ground in front of him.

Tea stains scattered all over the ground, and the teacup had shattered.

Beside him kneeled a man in black.

Yi Wentao’s chest heaved violently, and his eyes seemed to be burning with anger. It was obvious how angry he was.

“Uncontactable? What does that mean?!” He lowered his voice, but it wasn’t difficult to hear the strong suppressed anger in his words.

The man in black still lowered his head and said, “We’ve already sent three messages in a row, but… It’s still like a stone sinking into the sea. There’s no reply.”

Yi Wentao took a deep breath and closed his eyes.

Actually, he had long understood the meaning of these words. He just didn’t want to believe it.

Does Black Demon Hole… not plan to pay attention to me anymore?! Yi Wentao tried his best to calm down, but it was very difficult.

Black Demon Hole was his last straw to clutch at!

A few days ago, Jun Jiuqing came over and asked him that question. At that time, he seemed to have compromised and told Jun Jiuqing everything about the Celestial Shield, but in fact, he hated Jun Jiuqing to the core.

In his opinion, Jun Jiuqing was ambitious and had long thought of scheming for the position of family head!

Taking advantage of the fact that he was trapped in Peach Blossom Dock, he forcefully made his move and easily became the new head of the Yi family!

Jun Jiuqing was high and mighty now, but what about him? He had already fallen to such a state that he couldn’t even enter and exit this courtyard freely!

Yes, Jun Jiuqing was the successor to be the family head that he had personally chosen. But at that time, how did he know that Jun Jiuqing was actually such a person?

He could only blame himself for being blind and being deceived.

To think that he even personally handed the token to Jun Jiuqing… Now that he thought about it, it was extremely ironic!

Of course, Yi Wentao wouldn’t sit still and wait for death. Hence, after lying low for a few years, he finally contacted his sacrificial warriors again.

He naturally had his ways. The man in black in front of him was one of them.

What Jun Jiuqing wanted was actually very simple: He wanted to obtain everything he had lost. He wanted to recover his strength and take back the Yi family!

However, it was easier said than done. No matter which one it was, it was almost impossible for him to complete them. Therefore, from the beginning, he wanted to rely on external forces.

This external force was naturally Black Demon Hole!

For the past few years, in order to avoid Rong Xiu’s investigation, he had been very careful and cut off all contact with his sacrificial warriors.

Until this time, there was really no other way.

Besides, he had already fallen out with Rong Xiu. Even if the latter knew about this, there was nothing to be afraid of.

Now that he had nothing, what was there to be afraid of?

However, he didn’t expect that when he summoned a sacrificial warrior and got him to contact Black Demon Hole, he received such an outcome!

It was obvious that without that person’s help, he would definitely not be able to turn the tables. That was why Yi Wentao was so angry.

“Back then, Rong Xiu killed his way to Black Demon Hole. If I didn’t send out a few sacrificial warriors to help him, how could they have the time to leave successfully? Now, he’s turning his back on us!”

Yi Wentao started coughing again. His face was still very pale, and a fishy and sweet smell spread in his mouth.

When the man in black kneeling below saw this, he asked worriedly, “Master, your body…”

Yi Wentao shook his head. “I’m already recovering. I’ll be fine after a while.”

His voice sounded a little weak.

The previous battle had exhausted him too much.

The few days he was locked up in Peach Blossom Dock were even more devastating. If not for his good foundation, he wouldn’t have been able to endure it.

“Contact him again!”

The black-robed man hesitated for a moment and said, “Master, could something have happened over there…”

Yi Wentao frowned. “What?”

“I personally thought that even if they didn’t want to help, they would’ve informed us and wouldn’t have responded like this. Moreover… It’s impossible for that person not to know the current situation of the Yi family and the Nan family. But evenl now, they haven’t done anything. This… Don’t you think it’s strange?”

Yi Wentao didn’t think so at first, but after hearing the man in black’s words, he instantly felt that something was wrong.

He stood up and paced around the room. His brows were tightly knitted, and he was deep in thought for a long time. That’s right. Since the Nan family and the Yi family are in trouble, it is impossible for that person to be indifferent. After all, he is the one behind these two families.

Now that Nan Yifan and I have been defeated, to a certain extent, it is also a humiliation to that person. How could he bear it?

“Perhaps… that person is still in seclusion?”

In the past few years, Yi Wentao rarely contacted that person. He only knew that he was in seclusion most of the time.

“No, if that’s the case, the people below won’t be indifferent…” Yi Wentao suddenly stood still and widened his eyes. I’m afraid that something really has happened to Black Demon Hole!

His mind raced as he looked at the man in black. “Did anyone notice you coming over recently?”

The man in black immediately said, “No, I’ve always been cautious and didn’t dare to make any mistakes.”

Yi Wentao was still worried. He paused and then asked, “What’s the situation at Peach Blossom Dock and the Sky-Cloud Empire?”

The man in black shook his head. “It seems like… everything is normal. I haven’t heard any news recently.”

Yi Wentao’s heart sank. Something has happened!
