As one of the seven great ancient clans of the Immortal Dimension, exactly how many Immortal Kings did the Zuoqiu Clan possess?
Chen Xi wasn’t aware.
But he was certain that the death of Zuoqiu Linghong would definitely be a blow to a certain extent to the Zuoqiu Clan!
This was enough for him.
However, Chen Xi still couldn’t help but be slightly worried. Now that Zuoqiu Kong had died, Zuoqiu Feng who was the Patriarch of the Zuoqiu Clan would definitely be enraged. It was fine if Zuoqiu Feng came to seek revenge from him, but if Zuoqiu Feng vent his rage on Chen Xi’s mother, Zuoqiu Xue. Chen Xi wondered what he would do then.
Of course, Chen Xi was very clearly aware that these worries were purely unnecessary because if his mother, Zuoqiu Xue, was so easy to deal with, then she would have probably been killed by Zuoqiu Feng all those years ago.
Not to mention there was even a force in the Zuoqiu Clan that supported his mother, Zuoqiu Xue. As the Patriarch of the Zuoqiu Clan, once Zuoqiu Feng acted in such a manner, it would definitely cause the entire Zuoqiu Clan to split apart.
Even Zuoqiu Feng was probably unwilling to see such consequences occur.
Sin City, Dragonsoul Restaurant.
Chen Xi held a banquet here to display his gratitude.
Shi Yu and the others naturally wouldn’t refuse it.
“Brother Chen Xi, you have to be careful from now on. Even though the Zuoqiu Clan won’t go against you in the open, the tricks they play in secret are troublesome in the end.” After they drank happily, Shi Yu warned Chen Xi.
Chen Xi smiled and agreed.
“If you’re in trouble in the future, then head to Nuwa’s Dao Palace. We naturally won’t sit idly by as you’re being bullied.” Xiangliu Li’s face was covered in smiles as she spoke, and then she withdrew a snow white and translucent command token before passing it to Chen Xi. “This is the Nuwa Token, and there’s a door towards Nuwa’s Dao Palace within it. If you encounter danger, then you just have to crush it, and it’ll teleport you into Nuwa’s Dao Palace. Don’t refuse it.”
When they saw this, Sun Wuhen, Dao Yao, and Pang Du glanced at Chen Xi with slight envy because that was a life-saving treasure. With it in hand, it was undoubtedly like possessing a life-saving talisman, and it was even protection that came from Nuwa’s Dao Palace.
“Thank you, Miss Li.” Chen Xi quickly put it away and thanked her.
Shi Yu seemed to have thought of something as he looked at Sun Wuhen and the others, and then he said abruptly, “What do the three of you plan to do after this?”
Sun Wuhen and the others were stunned as they hadn’t considered this.
After all, they were heirs of Prehistoric Sects. Presently, the Prehistoric Ruins had been completely destroyed, and it had slightly taken then by surprise.
“How about this. If the three of you don’t mind, then why don’t you return to Nuwa’s Dao palace with us? With your strengths, you’ll definitely be able to possess a place there.” Shi Yu smiled as he invited them. These were three Immortal Kings, and they presently possessed Dao Fruit’s Spirits, so it probably wouldn’t be long before they were able to attain the Dao and become gods. Thus, if Shi Yu was able to draw them over into his sect, then it would absolutely be beneficial to the sect.
“This…” Sun Wuhen and the others hesitated slightly. They were naturally tempted by this suggestion, but Nuwa’s Dao Palace was one of the three supreme sects, and they were worried whether they would be able to gain a foothold and not be pushed aside there.
Shi Yu wasn’t in a hurry to get a reply from them, and he gave them time to consider.
In the end, Sun Wuhen was the first to speak. “Since it’s like this, then I’ll gladly accept.”
Shi Yu roared with laughter and raised his wine cup as he said, “Then I’ll represent the sect to welcome Fellow Daoist in advance.”
“Fellow Daoist Shi Yu, you’re too kind. At that time, I’ll need to rely on Fellow Daoist to take care of me.” Sun Wuhen chuckled as he raised his wine cup and knocked it on Shi Yu’s wine cup before finishing the wine in it.
When they saw this, Dao Yao and Pang Du exchanged glances before they immediately agreed as well.
Both of them had the same opinion. They’d always been cultivating in the Prehistoric Ruins and hadn’t come into contact with the Immortal Dimension for very long. Since they could only cultivate in the Immortal Dimension now, then Nuwa’s Dao Palace was undoubtedly a good choice.
Most importantly, they had a precious treasure in their possession, the Dao Fruit’s Spirit, and they needed to look for a safe place to refine and absorb it before they could charge into the Godrank Realm.
As one of the three supreme sects of the three dimensions, Nuwa’s Dao Palace was naturally able to satisfy all their requirements.
Shi Yu was rather happy when he saw that all three of them had agreed. In the next moment, he gazed at Heaven Trampler. “Fellow Daoist Heaven Trampler…”
“Don’t. I still have to go look for my Master, and it’s impossible for me to join your Nuwa’s Dao Palace.” Before Shi Yu could invite him, Heaven Trampler hurriedly refused. Even though his Integration Sect had fallen into decline, it was an existence that rivaled Nuwa’s Dao Palace in the past, so he would naturally not join Nuwa’s Dao Palace.
Shi Yu shrugged, and then smiled as he said, “Take it as if I never said a word.”
Chen Xi witnessed all of this, and he couldn’t help but sigh with emotion in his heart. If Senior Sister Li Yang was here, then perhaps she would be able to draw Sun Wuhen and the others into Oracle Mountain as well.
After the banquet ended, Shi Yu, Xiangliu Li, Sun Wuhen, Dao Yao, and Pang Du left. They intended to return to the sect and comprehend the Grand Dao of the Gods in meditation.
However, before they left, Xiangliu Li placed the unconscious Dian Dian in Chen Xi’s care.
On the other hand, Chen Xi left under Heaven Trampler’s protection, and he left Sin City and travelled towards Dao Emperor Academy.
Right after Chen Xi and the others left Sin City, a shocking piece of news spread to the Zuoqiu Clan and caused a mighty uproar.
In a grand and ancient hall within the Zuoqiu Clan.
A beardless middle aged man with a dignified expression sat upright at the center of the hall, and he had a gloomy and livid expression while his eyes surged with monstrous flames of rage.
He was the Patriarch of the Zuoqiu Clan, Zuoqiu Feng!
When he heard the grievous news, Zuoqiu Feng who’d always been cultivating behind closed doors to charge into the Immortal King Realm couldn’t restrain himself and emerged from his closed door cultivation.
It couldn’t be helped, this news was too shocking, and it was slightly impossible for him to accept.
At the sides of the hall was numerous mighty figures. All of them possessed monstrous imposing auras that seemed deep like abysses, and they were all the elders of the Zuoqiu Clan. There was over a hundred of them.
Shockingly, the Vice Dean of Dao Emperor Academy’s outer court, Zuoqiu Hong, and the head instructor of the Pill Reserve, Zuoqiu Sheng, were amongst them.
Moreover, there were numerous figures seated cross-legged at the sides of the seat of the host situated at the center of the hall. All of their bodies were suffused with even more terrifying auras. Shockingly, all of them were the seniors of the Zuoqiu Clan that lived in seclusion.
In other words, at this moment, practically all the higher-ups of the Zuoqiu Clan were gathered here!
All of this was merely because of the grievous news that just arrived at the clan — The heir of the clan, Zuoqiu Kong, had perished, and the senior of the clan, Zuoqiu Linghong, had been killed!
“Dammit! Who allowed that bastard to go out?” Suddenly, Zuoqiu Feng was unable to restrain the rage in his heart any longer, and he roared with a grim voice that sounded like a thunderclap. It rumbled through the hall and shocked the two attendants outside the hall, causing their bodies to go limp and fall to the ground.
He couldn’t be blamed for being so furious. He only had a single son, Zuoqiu Kong, and he’d always been fostering Zuoqiu Kong as the heir of the position of Patriarch in the clan. Moreover, Zuoqiu Kong didn’t disappoint him. Zuoqiu Kong revealed extremely outstanding natural talent at a young age and had even ascended into the ranks of the seven blazing suns of the Immortal Dimension to become renowned throughout the world.
Yet now, Zuoqiu Kong had died!
As a father, how could he accept this?
“Patriarch, Kong’er acted on his own in this matter, and if he didn’t act willfully, then such a tragedy wouldn’t have occurred, ” said an old man that sat at the left side of the hall. He had hair that was pitch black like ink, a cold appearance, and revealed a firm and strong aura. His name was Zuoqiu Lie.
“Hmph! He acted on his own? Could it be that all of you don’t know how to stop him?” Zuoqiu Feng’s eyes narrowed when he heard Zuoqiu Lie speak, and he berated in a grim voice. As the Patriarch, he was naturally clearly aware that Zuoqiu Lie and many other elders present here seemed to be submitted to him, yet they’d always been going against him.
If it wasn’t for the sake of maintaining the stability of the clan, he would have annihilated all of these old bastards a long time ago!
“Stop him? With Ancestor Linghong by his side, would anyone be able to stop him? Not to mention that it wasn’t just Kong’er that lost his life this time. Because of Kong’er’s willful actions, even Ancestor Linghong was implicated and met with misfortune as well!” Zuoqiu Lie argued without holding back at all.
“So in this way, you think that Kong’er caused Ancestor Linghong’s death?” Zuoqiu Feng started laughing from extreme rage. It’s already at a time like this, yet this fellow is actually still going against me and refusing to budge at all. I truly wish for nothing more than to kill him right now!
“Enough!” Suddenly, a thin and green clothed old man by Zuoqiu Feng’s side spoke. His brows were sharp like blades, and his gaze seemed like thunderstorm vortexes. He swept everyone in the hall with an icy cold gaze before he said coldly, “It has already come to this yet all of you still have the mood to fight with each other?”
Zuoqiu Lie instantly kept quiet.
This thin green clothed old man was called Zuoqiu Huanglin. His seniority was shockingly high, and his cultivation was unfathomable. All those years ago when Zuoqiu Feng ascended to the position of Patriarch, it was Zuoqiu Huanglin that supported Zuoqiu Feng.
Otherwise, with Zuoqiu Feng’s ability, it would be absolutely impossible for him to easily take the position of Patriarch.
As soon as Zuoqiu Huanglin spoke, all the elders present within the hall instantly went silent.
When he saw this, Zuoqiu Feng didn’t dare continue letting his temper flare any longer, and he grunted coldly with a gloomy expression. “The matter has already been investigated clearly. Kong’er and Ancestor Linghong suffered misfortune in Sin City, and the culprits…”
When he spoke up to here, Zuoqiu Feng’s became extremely agitated and furious once more, and he was actually unable to speak for a long time.
All of the higher-ups of the Zuoqiu Clan frowned when they saw this.
“Speak frankly if you have something to say.” Zuoqiu Huanglin frowned as well. Is there any need to be secretive at a time like this?
Zuoqiu Feng took a deep breath and forcefully restrained his anger before he said, “It was six Immortal Kings that did it, and two of them were from Nuwa’s Dao Palace. They were Nuwa’s Dao Palace’s Dao Protecting Disciple, Shi Yu and Xiangliu Li. Besides them, the identities of the other four haven’t been determined yet…”
Before he could finish speaking, the hall exploded into an uproar, and it was like a stone that caused a thousand waves.
Six Immortal Kings!
Nuwa’s Dao Palace!
These words shocked everyone within the hall to the point of gasping without end, and they almost didn’t dare believe their ears!
“How could this be possible?”
“When did our Zuoqiu Clan incur enmity with Nuwa’s Dao Palace?”
“Six Immortal Kings! No wonder… No wonder even Ancestor Linghong suffered misfortune…”
An uproar instantly arose in the hall. Even the extremely senior Zuoqiu Huanglin’s eyes narrowed at this moment, and then a strand of an extremely shocking divine glow erupted from them.
The thing that truly drew his attention wasn’t that there were six Immortal Kings but there were two heirs of Nuwa’s Dao Palace amongst them!
