Chapter 0668: Jin Shengdao


He remembered that Qu Haoyan was the eldest son of the Yan Dragon Army’s general. Then this Qu Haoyang should not be his brother.

Qu Haoyang, a chiliarch in the Yan Dragon Army who could command thousands of Yan Dragon Guards, was definitely older than Qu Haoyan.

But their surnames were the same, and their names were also similar. No one would believe you if you said that they were not related.

Wu Yu did not know how powerful this Yan Dragon Army chiliarch who commanded thousands of Yan Dragon Guards would be. Anyway, he would certainly be many times stronger than the chiliarchs of the Yan Huang Immortal Army. They had a similar title, but the difference in power was like heaven and earth.

Just like the Yan Huang Ancient Country and the Dong Yue Wu Kingdom, they were all called "countries."

Obviously, this man would not be easy to deal with. For the time being, he could only act according to the circumstances.

After seeing Wu Yu and discreetly being intimidated by him, Wu Yun and Yang Qiang became more well-behaved. At this point, they did not intend to stay here any longer and hence asked Wu Yu to follow them and return to Yan Huang Imperial City.

"I will get even with you for what happened today," Yang Qiang said to the Imperial General secretly.

He was still blaming the Imperial General for the loss he had suffered today.

The group of four went towards Yan Huang Imperial City quickly.

On the other side, the Taixu Sage Master and everyone else were watching nervously. When they saw Wu Yu appear, they could only sigh helplessly.

The Imperial General arrived first, and Wu Yu followed the two men up.

"We were still exposed?" the Taixu Sage Master asked.

The Imperial General told them what had happened. It was more or less what the Taixu Sage Master and the others expected.

"You mean Wu Yu managed to defeat both of them effortlessly?" It was Wu Yu's strength that surprised them.

The Imperial General nodded, recalling the fight, and said, "Indeed, he can suppress me. Maybe he is almost at your level."

The Taixu Sage Master shook his head and said, "I can't do it. I can't defeat those two in the blink of an eye."

When they heard this, they were all shocked. Someone murmured, "Maybe Wu Yu had some mysterious encounter in the Taigu Immortal Path? If not, how can he improve so much? Perhaps, it was this mysterious encounter that made people jealous?"

"If so, he will be in more trouble this time."

"We can only hope that he can resolve it himself."

"Compared with the people in Yan Huang Ancient Region, our levels are too low, so Wu Yu, who has no background, can only suffer losses."

The people from the Shushan Immortal Sect knew this well, because Wu Yu had suffered losses when he was at the Shushan Immortal Sect because of his lack of background. But as a result, he had become stronger.

Everyone looked at Wu Yu with worry and concern. He finally returned to Yan Huang Imperial City, which he was familiar with.

"Commander Qu already knows that you are back. He congratulates you on coming out of the Taigu Immortal Path. He is waiting for you in there. Follow us in quickly." Wu Yu paused for a while, so Wu Yun urged him to catch up.

To others, the people that were killed by Wu Yu were still in the Taigu Immortal Path.

In reality, they would never be able to see the light of day ever again.

Wu Yu entered the outer city, which used to be bustling, but now there was no one. It was quiet and cold everywhere. Many inns were closed.

The people from the outer city had been chased out even earlier.

In an instant, they reached the inner city. After entering the inner city, the two of them led the way to the City Lord Residence.

The Yan Huang Ancient Well was under the City Lord Residence.

However, Qu Haoyang and the others were not in the Yan Huang Ancient Well, but in front of the City Lord Residence. Wu Yu saw from a distance that a group of people had gathered in front of the City Lord Residence. Compared with the talented and powerful people in the Taigu Immortal Path, they were even more domineering, and there were hundreds of them. All of them were Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm cultivators like Wu Yun and Yang Qiang. They were considered normal here.

All of them were wearing suits of Yan Dragon Armor. It seemed like there were hundreds of mystical dragons gathered together. The military management and training brought about a resolute and consistent attitude and will, a cold and tough style, and a special kind of killing intent after undergoing battlefield training. Wu Yu had led armies before. Even ordinary mortal soldiers had this will, let alone these army of martial cultivators.

Frankly speaking, although the potential and achievements of the hundreds of people in the Taigu Immortal Path far outweighed those of the hundreds of people in front of his eyes, if the two sides were to fight now, the Yan Dragon Army could definitely crush them.

All the Yan Dragon Guards here were brave and resolute. They had experienced hundreds of years of battle. It seemed like they were not old, but in fact, the time they had spent in martial cultivation could very possibly be at least 100 years, 200 years, or even 300 years.

Here, Wu Yu was surrounded by a group of tiger-like Yan Dragon Guards, possibly with many centurions among them. He could feel the pressure. To send such a group of people here, the Yan Huang Ancient Country probably saw this as an important place.

Among a group of Yan Dragon Guards, Wu Yu saw Qu Haoyang. He was a man who looked younger than the other Yan Dragon Guards. He looked a little similar to Qu Haoyan. They likely belonged to the same bloodline. He had probably been cultivating the dao for 100 years or so. Maybe he had been in the army for a long time. In terms of aura, dominance, and the sharpness and willpower in his eyes, he was better than Qu Haoyan. He stood upright even though there were people taller than him. But at this moment, he was the focus of attention.

"Commander, Wu Yu is here!"

Wu Yun and Yang Qiang said in unison. Both of them moved in a neat and uniform way, half kneeling on the ground.

After that, they moved quickly, retreating to both sides, joining the rest of the Yan Dragon Army, and leaving Wu Yu alone to face the hundreds of Yan Dragon Guards.

Wu Yu's Eyes of Fire and Gold scanned through the crowd, and he roughly understood the strength of these people.

The majority of them were fourth tier and below  Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm cultivators. Their suits of Yan Dragon Armor were of a lower level, and their color was redder. They should be Yan Dragon Guards.

There were more than a dozen fifth and sixth tier Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm cultivators. Their auras were stronger and they stood beside Qu Haoyang. The color of their suits of Yan Dragon Armor was golden and seemed heavier.

These people were probably not much worse than Princess You Xue and Prince Feng.

Qu Haoyang, as the chiliarch, had to be stronger. He was at least at the seventh tier of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm. Wu Yu knew that he was not his opponent.

At this time, Wu Yu and this group of people exchanged gazes. Their intense gazes were like blazing fire, pouncing on Wu Yu. They were suppressing Wu Yu. If he were someone timid, he probably would have knelt on the ground at this moment.

It was a bit difficult to fight against hundreds of people alone, but Wu Yu remained calm and did not look directly at them. Instead, he smiled and said, "Wu Yu pays his respects to Sir Qu Haoyang. Can I ask what Sir wants from me?"

Qu Haoyang stood still. His temperament as a soldier was very obvious. His voice was rough and powerful. He said directly, "Recently, I heard some bad news from the people who came out of the Taigu Immortal Path. I want to double check with you."

"Sir, please ask. I will answer truthfully."

Qu Haoyang stared at him and said, "I want to know all the details of the events that happened in that tomb, from the meeting between you and Prince Le, to the last incident. Tell me clearly everything that you saw."

The death of Prince Le would certainly cause a great commotion to the whole Yan Huang Ancient Country. Wu Yu was not in the Yan Huang Ancient Country now, but he could know a little through Princess You Xue.

He was indeed there when it happened.

If he just wanted to know this, of course, Wu Yu could tell him. He had no reservations except his own secrets. Of course, there was the Perennial Shark. He did not say that he had killed him.

"No one knew that that kind of monster would appear in the gold and silver coffins. It was really scary. If Prince Le had not asked me to block others from entering at that time, I wouldn't be standing here now."

He finished speaking.

In fact, they might have heard of these details, but Wu Yu had described the monster in the Taigu Immortal Path more clearly.

Prince Le's death was indeed an accident.

After hearing this, Qu Haoyang asked, "You examine your conscience and ask yourself if you have tried your best to rescue Prince Le and the others who were in danger."

Every word of his was very powerful, pressuring Wu Yu from within.

Wu Yu was not affected and said immediately, "At that time, I was threatened by everyone and Prince Le was willing to back me up. I had the rare opportunity to serve a powerful person. I might even have been successful in the future because of him. Why would I not want Prince Le to survive? However, at a place like the Taigu Immortal Path, especially in that tomb, I could not control anything."

The people in the Yan Dragon Army still looked at Wu Yu coldly.

On this matter alone, Wu Yu did not think that the other party could find any flaws, because it really was an accident.

Next to Qu Haoyang, a man with a body big like a giant’s, who was at least four or more heads taller than Qu Haoyang, shouted, "Wu Yu, you better think clearly. If you hide anything from us, we will not let you off easily!" 

This man had a head full of blonde hair, like a lion's mane. Although he was tall, he was hunchbacked, looking like a standing lion. His face even had some features of a lion, such as a pair of fangs, and his gaze was also fierce like a beast’s.

From his Yan Dragon Armor and standing position, he should be a centurion, one of Qu Haoyang's trusted subordinates.

Qu Haoyang waved his hand and said, "Jin Shengdao, don't frighten him. I think he did his best in this matter." 

"I know.… It's just such a pity that the two young masters died," the man called Jin Shengdao said with his teeth clenched.

"They were my cousins. I feel more pity than you, but it has happened. There is no way to change it," Qu Haoyang said.

It turned out to be this relationship.

Seeing that the matter seemed to be over, Wu Yu asked, "Sir Qu, you came here specially to deal with the two puppets of the Heaven Devouring Evil Lord this time. Can I know if there is any progress? If you allow it, Wu Yu is willing to contribute a little."

However, they did not think that Wu Yu would ask this question.
