A group of people walked out of the city, no one dared to fly, and followed the small mountain path and walked. Ifthey were seen by Lu Tian Wen, his spear would be unleashed on all of them, and they would die even before theycould scream.
“I don’t believe it.”
Black Ben Sen remained expressionless.
“I do not believe it either.” Victor agreed.
“I fought with him before, no one is able to become so powerful in such a short frame of time.” Black Ben Senmaintained his expressionless face, his tone was low and powerful, naturally giving off a convincing tone. And hiswords were equally trustworthy.
The opponent was Lu Tian Wen, not anyone else, ranked 39 on the List of Powerhouses, in other words, he wassomeone who was able to stand at the 39th position in the entire Sin Domain, what kind of existence was that? Evenif they were all major figures in Purple Cuckoo City, but in front of Lu Tian Wen, they were just trash.
No one believed that Ghost Face Mask was able to fight against such a fearsome man.
“We will know in two days.” Xu Ye had recovered from the shock from the previous day, and recovered hisindifference: “Lu Tian Wen suffered greatly, he will not let it rest.”
“So we will stand guard in the wilderness for the next few days?” Roland Su, who acted as if she never listened to anyof their words, suddenly spoke up.
It was definitely not something worth celebrating, to stay in the wilderness, there was the Rainbow Drift, wildbeasts etc, all sorts of innumerable dangers, no chance for showers, to a lady, if it was possible, they would never bewilling to stay in the wilderness. And from Xu Ye’s tone, it was not only for a day.
“I don’t know.” Xu Ye replied honestly: “No one knows when Lu Tian Wen will recover and come back.”
Roland Su’s face became extremely ugly, but she did not say a word, for she knew the severity of the matter.Thinking about her own b
et, she became happy again, Ghost Face Mask would be able to defend against Lu TianWen, if Ghost Face Mask did not die, then this favor towards the Roland Family would be worth cities.
Now, she was praying for Ghost Face Mask to not die, it was a definite that he would be unable to defeat Lu TianWen, as long as he survived from Lu Tian Wen’s attacks, he would definitely have the qualifications to be on the Listof Powerhouses.
In the entire Purple Cuckoo City, only Qin Zhen was able to enter the List of Powerhouses.
To have a favor with a martial artist on the List of Powerhouses, was definitely the most successful investment theRoland Family would have made after so many years. She could not help but glance at Victor, thinking in her heart,that he was somewhat sharp with his eyes, to be able to think for himself at such a crucial moment,.
Her mood instantly became much better.
Victor was smiling bitterly, thinking that the elders in his family were all idiots. If Ghost Face Mask was killed by LuTian Wen, that would be fine, but if he was not killed…..
~Ghost Face Mask’s strength has to be reevaluated.~
“To take up a few days of your time, It would delay the matters that you all have at hand, but always, seeing isbelieving.” Xu Ye said.
The rest did not say a word, and all became pensive.
Qin Zhen was an extremely ambitious man, causing the other families to be under immense pressure. The ThiopiateFamily was willing to rely on the Qin Family, but the rest were not willing to. Under that pressure, everyone had tolook for other variables.
Victor looked at the young twins by Ben Sen’s side, and could not help but smiled: “Old Black, your eyes are trulygood, where did you find this pair of beauties?”
Ben Sen remained expressionless: “You better not provoke them, they were just refined from the death trials.”
Everyone’s faces towards the two young ladies immediately changed.
“The new generation’s Steel Guards?” Roland Su could not help but ask. Everyone was close, and they knew of theDeath Trials, it was the most brutal trial for the Mu’er Steel Guards.
With their tall statures and fine battle robes, they had delicate oval faces with their hair tied up in a ponytail, theirbig eyes were very bright, and the two looked so identical that no one could differentiate between the two.
“Yes, I brought them along to gain experience.” Ben Sen replied indifferently.
“Greetings seniors.” The two young ladies spoke up at the same time.
“I am Xiao Yu.” “I Am Xiao Ye.”
“Please take care of us!” The two of them said in unison.
Everyone was dumbstruck, the two dynamic young ladies had melodious voices, no one could ever link them to theMu’er Steel Guards.
But very quickly, everyone reacted, the Ben Sen was still the most shrewd! ~Right, why didn’t we think of it!~Everyone revealed regretful faces, a battle that involved Lu Tian Wen, a martial artist of a different standing couldonly be discovered and not sought, to be able to witness his battle, it would definitely bring great benefits.
Even if Ghost Face Mask won or lost, Ben Sen would gain from it!
Even Xu Ye revealed a rare look of regret. To any family, the grooming of the future generations was never enough.~I place so much emphasis on the benefits and future of the family, why didn’t I think of this?~
That was everyone’s thoughts, all of their moods instantly dampened.
“We’re here.” Xu An Zhong who had kept quiet the entire journey suddenly spoke up, his face was pale white, but hisaura was much better, after experiencing the torment from the bedevilment, although his internal injuries were notlight, but it would not hurt him in the long run. As long as he overcame his bedevilment, his strength wouldtransform once again.
They were where he stood to watch the previous battle.
Everyone was shocked, from where they were, Echo Hill Castle was just a small black dot.
“This is a bit too far.” Victor muttered.
Xu An Zhong said sullenly: “Any closer and they will notice us.”
Everyone’s faces changed, is this the strength of the martial artists on the List of Powerhouses?
“Now we just have to wait.” Xu Ye laughed, although the Roland Family took the first move, but he had even morebargaining chips. With the Null Division prisoners in his hands, he had the qualifications to wager.
They all wanted to see, if Ghost Face Mask was able to survive from Lu Tian Wen’s hands.
Echo Hill Castle.
“Is Master Ghost Face Mask fine.” Xiao Yao asked with worry: “He hasn’t made any sound in the past few days.”
“We should just do our work well.” Ming Zhu remained calm, as though she was not affected at all. Only hertightening of her grip on her sleeves revealed the same worry she had. The Master had stayed in his room for threefull days without appearing.
If not for occasionally hearing some shouts from inside, they would had long rushed in to check up on him.
Ming Zhu was in a daze, the future of the Xue Family was completely in Master Ghost Face Mask’s hands.
On the empty and dark training ground, only Tang Tian’s figure that had a faint light aura around, would continuetraining with perspiration dripping down.
Tang Tian seemed to be in a trance, repeating again and again with his hand blade, training the Heavy DemonicExecution.
Perspiration trickled down his forehead and cheeks, his body looked as though he was pulled out from water, hotmist faintly visible under the rays of light. He remained completely focused throughout the three days and threenights, practising the Heavy Demonic Execution countless of times.
All the Life Origin Essence that he had absorbed were currently being activated, boundless of Origin Forcecontinued to replenish his strength.
~Disassembling the parts, joining them up again, practise and practise….~
The familiar process of training came back to him.
Perspiration will never lie, this would forever be engraved in Tang Tian’s mind. He did not know many principles, buthe would never dare forget this.
He himself did not know how many times he had trained, it had been a long time since he trained like that.
The blowing of wind in the air around disappeared, he stood still, all the droplets of perspiration covered his face, hiseyes twinkling like the stars.
Creaaaak, the training door opened.
Tang Tian walked out without saying a word.
All of the Null Division members who were training bitterly all stopped, but no one made a sound. Tang Tian’sexpression was extremely solemn, his entire body emitted an extremely cold fighting intent. He walked through thetraining grounds and walked out of the castle doors, he sat on the wall cross legged and closed his eyes to meditate.
He was waiting for Lu Tian Wen.
The figure sat stably like a statue against the strong winds that passed through the doors, the scene seen by everybody.
Every single Null Division members who were perspiring, eyes lit up with excitement, the fighting intent in theirbodies ignited silently. Tang Tian’s movements indicated one thing: Master is already ready!
Ah Mo Li stood up and grabbed his Board Guillotine Blade and rested it on his shoulder, whoosh, the gray Tiny NullFlames soared along the blade’s body, and flowed along the entire blade.
“Everyone, get ready for battle!” Ah Mo Li cheered.
One after another, every figure that were drenched with perspiration placed their Board Guillotine Blades on theirshoulders, all of their faces, were high spirited and filled with fighting intent.
“Move to your battle positions.”
Nie Qiu who sat cross legged in the corner suddenly spoke up.
On the stone flooring, there were horizontal line markings, all of them were the battle positions meticulouslyplanned out by Nie Qiu. Every position were derived after surveying the entire place.
Everyone quickly rushed over to their respective positions.
“Enter your passive breathing.”
Nie Qiu’s voice that was usually calm and gentle had become extremely stern and cold. ~An expert from the List ofPowerhouse? I can’t wait to test you out!~
Ah Mo Li and everyone else placed down their Board Guillotine Blades and closed their eyes to breathe, all of theirbreathing was unison, and sounded like a low hum across the entire castle.
Ming Zhu covered her mouth, her expression was one of shock, she had never seen such a thing before. A group ofpeople were actually breathing in unison. In that shock, the group of people in front of her seemed to have become agigantic ferocious beast, preserving and honing its strength.
Their perspiration slowly dried out, their bronze skin became like metal, the 64 figures in the field sat downunmoving, like 64 bronze statues.
Nie Qiu who sat quietly in the shadows was like an ancient monk, his gray eyes extremely dim.
In the mountain valleys, Lu Tian Wen gradually opened his eyes, at the moment, there were no more rage and angerin his eyes, only a state of calmness.
All the wounds on his body had recovered, but he was not in a rush to fight his way to Echo Hill Castle, but taking histime to hone his senses. This was his usual state, he knew that rushing in would cause more mistakes. He spent a fewdays nurturing his state of mind, until the last day, where his state of mind had reached its pinnacle.
In the previous setback, the majority of it stemmed from him underestimating the enemy, but this time, regardlessof anything, he would never underestimate them.
In his heart, he had already placed Ghost Face Mask Tang Tian in the same rank as him.
He stood up, grabbed Thunder Wind Spear, and slowly walked out of the mountain valley.
In the sky, he saw the Rainbow Drift quickly approaching.
~Let me resolve this battle before the Rainbow Drift comes.~
Lu Tian Wen’s body flickered with the green Wind and Thunder, and his figure disappeared into the sky.
“Lu Tian Wen is coming!”
Xu Ye who had his eyes closed and meditating suddenly spoke out, instantly causing the rest to be alert. All of themlooked out.
A green figure flashed out like lightning, whistling towards them.
The green scar flashed past, causing the sky to rumble with thunder sounds. From the distance, it sounded like a tiderushing in.
The imposing might shocked everyone!
~Is that Lu Tian Wen? Is that the expert on the List of Powerhouse?~
On the wall, Tang Tian opened his eyes.
Behind the big door, all the breathing stopped.
In the corner, the hair on Nie Qiu’s forehead moved despite having no wind.
