When Ning Biluo was talking, he looked pretty serious and solemn.
He clearly knew what he said was going to bring about a huge shake to the people. He knew exactly how important what the people were about to do after hearing his words could be.
Therefore, he had thought of every word several times in his heart before he finally said it out loud.
Ye Xiao nodded solemnly too, and he exchanged a look with Jun Yinglian and Xuan Bing.
“When we came here, we didn’t dare to get in touch with anybody. We didn’t dare to be exposed as two double agents. If we didn’t see Liu Changjun and knew more about master from him, we wouldn’t dare to talk to you like this…” Zhao Pingtian bitterly smiled and said, “In the entire Qing-Yun Realm, we have only one person that we can fully trust.”
They both looked at Ye Xiao.
Ye Xiao felt touched in his heart.
“So, have you been waiting to see me?” Ye Xiao asked.
“Yes, we do. In the beginning, we didn’t even dare to come close to you… We just couldn’t find a good time to approach. Besides, we did not know how powerful you were. If we were exposed, what happened to us was not that big a deal, but if it brings a negative influence to the great plan, it will be unacceptable!”
Zhao Pingtian smiled. “Yesterday, luckily, Changjun was here. He met us and told us more about your current situation. The wedding ceremonies and feasts recently gave us quite a lot of chances to meet you.”
Ye Xiao stood up and paced around for a while. After that, he looked at Liu Changjun and said, “What about you, Changjun? Why did you come here that late?”
Liu Changjun smiled and said, “I was not with good luck earlier. When I came to this world, I started to be hunted. I have been hunted and did not have a chance to join the organization. With Fierce Blade’s help, I got a treasure, which was powerful, and I spent quite some days somewhere to cultivate it, hiding for a long time. I just got out recently, and when I was out, I heard the news about you. That was when I rode ahead here. Unexpectedly, I met these two guys when I came. They sucked, by the way. They kept being worried and cautious all the time, talking about how powerful the organization was again and again. I told them how powerful the Fierce Blade was, and told them how powerful you should be. I told them not to think much, just to meet you first!”
Ye Xiao smiled and said, “Don’t be blindly optimistic. The organization is overwhelmingly powerful for real. Ning Biluo and Zhao Pingtian’s concerns are absolutely not shooting at random. However, Liu Changjun is also right. Now, we need to know exactly how the enemy’s system works. You guys have brought really important information in time. We fought in the Land of Han-Yang together in the old days, and now once again, we will fight side by side in Qing-Yun Realm!”
Ning Biluo, Zhao Pingtian, and Liu Changjun all had the fever shining in their eyes with enthusiasm.
The three of them never changed. They had been willing to follow Ye Xiao’s lead from the beginning.
Every time when they were in good dreams, they dreamed about the days when they were fighting with Ye Xiao.
The three of them knew well everything about the story of Ye Xiao after his reincarnation. However, they did not know that Ye Xiao was exactly Xiao Monarch. Even Liu Changjun, who was closest to Ye Xiao back in the lower realm, only knew a little bit about Ye Xiao’s past. If Li Wuliang didn’t point out the truth for him, he would still be clueless at the moment.
Now, Ye Xiao suddenly became the famous Xiao Monarch in the world, the world’s most powerful cultivator. Even though it was such a big change, none of the three men asked anything about it.
In their hearts, Ye Xiao was still the same Ye Xiao.
Whether Ye Xiao was young Lord Xiao or Xiao Monarch, it did not make any difference for any of them.
The only thing that mattered… was that Ye Xiao was still the same person!
That was enough for the three assassins!
It was totally enough!
“I need to add one more thing though.”
Zhao Pingtian said, “We two are weak in cultivation, so we did not dare to take any moves in case we expose ourselves… However, Rou’er is free. She can go out and check out at night… After doing it several times, she finally got some information that matters…”
“The organization’s foundation is in the area around Sky Eye Mountain… I do not have the exact location yet.”
What he said had stirred up a huge wave inside the hearts of Ye Xiao, Liu Changjun, and Ning Biluo.
“Sky Eye Mountain? Is it really around Sky Eye Mountain? Are you sure?” Ye Xiao’s eyes were burning.
Jun Yinglian and Xuan Bing were shocked too. They nearly exclaimed and trembled.
Jun Yinglian’s face suddenly turned pale because of it.
Apparently, the information had shaken up the three super cultivators in the world. They were astounded.
“Yes, I am. I have gone out and checked around several times. I am not sure what it is like inside the base, but I am sure it is around the Sky Eye Mountain. I am one hundred percent sure.”
Rou’er spoke softly in a low voice, “In fact, that place has extremely strict security arrangement. Every second, there are countless utterly powerful spiritual mind energies going round and round… Pingtian is definitely not powerful enough, but in fact, even if he is powerful enough, I will not let him go out and collect information under that security system. Even though I am special, I still could have been discovered by them… If they found me, I would be wiped and my soul would be destroyed…”
Ye Xiao looked solemn like he had never been before.
He took a deep breath and murmured slowly, word by word, “The Sky Eye Mountain… It is the base of the West Hall!”
Xuan Bing nodded and spoke slowly after him, “It is where the West Hall is located!”
Jun Yinglian’s pupils shrank, and she said, “It is Zong Yuankai’s West Hall!”
Ye Xiao suddenly shook his head, and then coldly said, “The West Hall! We have been discussing the location of the organization many times. We thought of many possible places. However, we never thought of the West Hall. In fact, if we think deeper about it, there are many clues that linked the secret organization to the West Hall. Maybe we ignored the shadow under our feet because the light was right over our head. Or maybe we got blinded by a small leaf. Who knows? Maybe we do not want the West Hall to be related to the secret organization. We just do not want to know that the powerful organization turned out to be much more powerful than we ever imagined!”
That was right. When Ye Xiao was in the Heaven’s Terrace, he knew that the Divine Yin Yang Fruit would not only boost a cultivator to the top level in Dao Origin Stage, but also plant the root of demonic energy inside the body. Whoever ate the Divine Yin Yang Fruit that was not purified by Erhuo would fall to the path of demons!
Wu Fa and Wu Tian were two vivid proofs of the truth!
Ye Xiao had seen the demonic energy from the members of the secret organization who were trying to kill Yue Shuang and Yue Han, from the Red in the Sky, and especially from the big black hand. The demonic energies were not in the same power level, but they were the same thing!
Before Ye Xiao, the man who used to take the Divine Yin Yang Fruit, who was, in fact, the first man to take the Divine Yin Yang Fruit, was actually the founder of the West Hall, Zong Yuankai!
The founder of the West Hall, Zong Yuankai, might still be alive, or maybe not, but there was definitely the demonic energy inside his body. He was definitely going to become a demonic creature. That was why the West Hall was strongly connected to the secret organization. It was a fair conjecture!
To think deeper about it, when the massacre happened in the Heaven’s Terrace, leaders of all influential sects were there. The current prime master of the West Hall, Zong Xingyu, was the man who invited everybody to go to the Heaven’s Terrace. After those people followed him to Heaven’s Terrace, they all went missing!
After that, it shocked everybody that their leaders went missing. They were astounded that the organization was actually powerful enough to defeat a group of people who were all influential cultivators in the world. None of those people survived! How horrible!
However, if the West Hall participated in the massacre, it wouldn’t be that difficult to take down those cultivators together, would it? There were only things that hadn’t been thought of yet, but not things that couldn’t be done!
Sometimes thinking of something by imagining how horrible it was would not help to approach the truth. Instead, a simple conjecture which was hard to believe would turn out to be the cruel truth!
Ye Xiao, Xuan Bing, and Jun Yinglian had never thought that Zhao Pingtian would bring them such extremely shocking news.
The information had led to a conclusion which indicated an unbelievable truth that shocked Ye Xiao, Xuan Bing, and Jun Yinglian, no matter how calm and steady the three of them were!
The three great cultivators stayed silent for a while and then decided to lay aside this issue for the moment.
Even though the truth was right before their eyes, it was not a good time to reveal it!
“The moles. Do we have a practical plan to get them out?” Ye Xiao looked at Rou’er and wisely changed the topic.
Zhao Pingtian and Ning Biluo clearly didn’t have the power to tell moles among their own people.
Rou’er was good at it because she was technically not a human being.
However, she clearly hesitated for a while, and she said, “I do have a plan. I can do it. When I helped Pingtian and Brother Ning with their soul restraint, I learned a lot about the special soul restraint energy… However, my soul power is still weak. It should be easier than extracting souls to tell the moles out of the crowd, but it is going to consume a lot of energy. I think all my energy is only enough for me to get out about one hundred people.”
She spoke in a mild tone but expressed the meaning quite frankly.
Zhao Pingtian’s face turned pale all of a sudden.
Rou’er was improved a lot, so she was able to stay in the shape as a soul. However, she was weak. If she used up all the soul energy, she would disappear and actually be destroyed at the second when the energy was up. That meant it was suicide.
Ye Xiao nodded and said, “Don’t worry, Lady Rou’er. We don’t need to rush. Let’s wait for three days first. In the next three days, I will prepare some medical materials which can improve you and cure you. I won’t let you get hurt just to get the moles.”
Rou’er nodded trustingly, leaning on Zhao Pingtian, looking sweet and soft.
“Zhao Pingtian, Ning Biluo, and Liu Changjun are gone. I think they will be fine. They have good experience after all.”
Xuan Bing looked grim and said, “What should we do next…”
Ye Xiao frowned and said, “Next, we discuss it.”
Jun Yinglian said, “This is serious. No matter what judgment we made out of shock, we have to make sure it is true first. At least we should have some solid proofs. The connections only prove the possibility. We believe it, but the others may not.”
She then frowned her beautiful eyebrows and said, “After all, this thing has too much influence to the martial world… If this is about the West Hall, half of the cultivators in the Qing-Yun Realm would lose faith in winning the war… If it is not connected to the West Hall and we are the people who bring up the absurd conjecture, we will lose credits for it. The mistake is too big…”
“Being wronged like that, the entire West Hall will go mad.”
Jun Yinglian took a deep breath.
Ye Xiao thought for a while and then said in a deep voice, “Lian Lian, with your intelligence and experience, you should be able to get to the truth now. You know it is true. You can’t be sure only because you don’t want to be sure, just like all the other cultivators. You don’t want the situation to go that negative for us…
“Truth is the truth. What’s real is real. You will have to face it sooner or later!
“You want some solid proofs. It is easy to say. It is difficult to refuse…
“Some places in the world have some things that human beings can never notice. However… the special life form, which breaks the limit of human beings is able to notice it.
“Rou’er is the special life form in front of us.” Ye Xiao explained to Jun Yinglian about the story of Rou’er. He said, “Since Rou’er has sensed it, found it, noticed it, then it is in the Sky Eye Mountain! There is no doubt about it!
“Since we can be sure about the location being around the Sky Eye Mountain, things are clear. Think about what we have been through, and think about everything about the organization. It makes sense. Oh, right. There is one thing you don’t know yet. The Divine Yin Yang Fruit from the Heaven’s Terrace has not only the power to improve one’s cultivation, but also the energy to turn one into a demon. It is something from the demon’s world. Whoever eats it will be greatly improved, but also seriously infected.
“The Divine Yin Yang Fruit I gave you is purified, which means the demonic energy is removed. Wu Fa is one of those who took the fruits in history. You know he is a demonic creature at the moment. Zong Yuankai, the founder of the West Hall is one of them too. Since Wu Fa has become a demonic creature, don’t you think Zong Yuankai has too?
“When Bing’er and I were fighting the Red in the Sky and the black hand, their demonic qi is filling up everywhere. They are even more demonic than Wu Fa. Even though they are not fighting together, they are the same thing…
“What we should be worried about is the West Hall.
“What role is the West Hall playing in this war?” Ye Xiao looked cold and grim in the face.
Jun Yinglian said, “If the Sky Eye Mountain is the base of the secret organization… I think the West Hall is a part of it.”
Xuan Bing nodded silently, lowered her head, and then her eyes shined a flash of glaring light.
“Things are always changing. We never know.” Ye Xiao said, “No matter the Sky Eye Mountain is the secret organization’s base or just a branch, the West Hall must play a role in it. How could they let the organization settled inside their territory if they weren’t with them?”
At the moment, Xuan Bing spoke in a low voice, “The war is coming. The entire Qing-Yun Realm is in a disturbance. All influential sects had sent people to join us… However, nobody from the West Hall and the East Hall is here!”
Ye Xiao’s face suddenly turned gloomy.
None of them talked.
The West Hall and the East Hall didn’t send anybody over!
