Soaring Of Galaxia Chapter 657
The Ten Thousand Flower Valley was not far from where they lived for it was only two or three thousand miles away. For martial artists of the Spiritual Martial Force, these two or three thousand miles were nothing. To Qin Wushuang and Jiu Fang Yunfei, this distance appeared even more insignificant.
Tian Mingshan and the three others had tracked them for a long time in the forest and around the nearby area. In the end, when they came up empty-handed, they realized that they must have fallen into a vicious trap. Shakyamuni Silver Loop swore, "Darn it, those two little guys are extremely cunning. It seems they have set up these confusing formations to puzzle us."
Tian Mingshan added with a gloomy face, "I always felt that something was wrong with that kid. I refuse to believe that he is a disciple of a major sect from the Illusion Heavenly Lake."
The "kid" he referred to was of course, Jiu Fang Yunfei.
Another Shakyamuni Chongguang was rather calm as he asked with a strange tone, "If that kid was not a disciple of the local sect, why would that young man who spoke later on lie for him?"
The way Qin Wushuang had lied for Jiu Fang Yunfei and how he vouched for his local familiarity made Tian Mingshan believe him. However, later on when they thought about it, they felt that something was fishy.
The more they thought of him, the more they felt Jiu Fang Yunfei was suspicious. Therefore, they had waited in a nearby area of that union so they could ambush Jiu Fang Yunfei, after he had departed with Qin Wushuang, and interrogate him.
This time, these three high officials from the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect had arrived at the Illusion Heavenly Lake with serious ambitions. Since their schemes and plans were of great importance, naturally they did not want to be targeted by people.
"Could it be those two guys were together?" Shakyamuni Silver Loop whispered.
Tian Mingshan shook his head with determination. "Impossible!"
Shakyamuni Chongguang also said, "It didn't seem like it. If they were together, why would they not be drinking and eating together? They couldn't have predicted we were going to that union beforehand and put on a show for us deliberately? Judging from their expressions, it seemed they did not truly know each other."
Shakyamuni Silver Hoop said with a depressed tone, "Now that we've lost these people, it's useless to discuss this now. What's our next step?"
Shakyamuni Chongguang shot a glance at Tian Mingshan. "Third Dao Warrior, earlier that information guy said the Emei Daoist Sect is issuing an open challenge to search for a groom? Would this matter influence our great scheme of seizing the treasure?"
Tian Mingshan said with a low voice, "It's not entirely impossible. If people of the Emei Daoist Sect are here, it would increase our difficulty of seizing the treasure."
"Ah, the Emei Daoist Sect is not issuing this challenge early on, why would they do this now? Besides, don't the Emei claim to resent men and not want any interactions with them?"
Tian Mingshan replied, "Let's not care about these things: let's head to the Ten Thousand Flower Valley first. Isn't it just an open challenge? That's good, we can use it as an excuse and turn disadvantage into an advantage."
"Yes, let's go to the Ten Thousand Flower Valley. Luo Yi and his group have a head start and certainly will get hold of more information. We can just regroup with them if we go now."
As these three people figured out their plan, they started to head towards the Ten Thousand Flower Valley.
The Ten Thousand Flower Valley was named this because of its flowers. This Ten Thousand Flower Valley was a sea of flowers and the home of the flower. It was rumored that there were ten thousand different flower breeds to be found there. Thus, it inherited the name, the Ten Thousand Flower Valley.
The entire Ten Thousand Flower Valley lasted tens and thousands of miles. It appeared extremely expansive, serene and hidden in depth. Since the Ten Thousand Flower Valley was under the ruling of the Emei Daoist Sect, it could be viewed as a training ground of the sect.
In usual times, the Ten Thousand Flower Valley was a forbidden place to the foreign world. Besides the disciples of the Emei Daoist Sect, unrelated disciples risk being scrutinized by the sect if they were to enter the Ten Thousand Flower Valley. Therefore, one must receive an approval if they want to enter this zone.
However, this Emei Daoist Sect was hosting some sort of "returning to normal life" event and an open challenge to search for a groom. In fact, the Emei Daoist Sect was not putting on a show.
It was because inside a training sect full of female martial artists, there would always be some of them incapable of breaking the love calamity. Since they could not breakthrough the training pass, they would remain ordinary for their entire lifetime.
For such disciples, the Emei Daoist Sect was unwilling to raise them without any gain. Every thirty years, they would host an open challenge to invite grooms. They would push such female disciples out of the sect and provide them an opportunity to leave with dignity.
Although it was almost like selling goods at a reduced price, considering the position that the Emei Daoist Sect had at the Illusion Heavenly Lake, countless young disciples would still compete and participate in it.
After all, for female disciples of the Emei Daoist Sect, even if they were to return to an ordinary life, they were still related to the sect. After they had returned to a normal life and were in situations of great difficulty, even if the Emei Daoist Sect were not to step out, as long as their former colleagues were willing to give a hand they would still benefit.
Therefore, even young disciples of many of the second or third rate sects had wanted the female disciples to return to normal life from the six major Daoist Sects.
After all, the majority of the female martial artists from the six major Daoist Sects did not participate in secular marriage. Only these female martial artists returning to the normal life would participate in marriage.
Although it seemed like settling for the second best choice, since female martial artists were the mainstream in the Illusion Heavenly Lake, these disciples returning a normal life had become the most popular choice.
When Qin Wushuang and Jiu Fang Yunfei had arrived outside the Ten Thousand Flower Valley, they felt the strong barrier guarding the Ten Thousand Flower Valley. They could not fly in, but could only drop from the sky.
On the exterior side of the Ten Thousand Flower Valley, many groups of two or three young martial artists were already gathered there. When they saw the elegant demeanor of Qin Wushuang and Jiu Fang Yunfei, these young martial artists judged them with a somewhat hostile look. They were showing a form of alertness in between their brows.
Qin Wushuang and Jiu Fang Yunfei were smart people and knew what the expressions from these people's eyes had meant. They shook their heads with a bitter smile. Of course, they were here not to participate in the challenge to be a groom.
Qin Wushuang and Jiu Fang Yunfei flew to find a remote place. Suddenly, Qin Wushuang had an idea and said to Jiu Fang Yunfei, "Brother Jiu Fang, those three people of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect already knew what you look like, how about you wear a mask?"
Jiu Fang Yunfei did not like to conceal his identity. Just as he was hesitating, Qin Wushuang said again, "Brother Jiu Fang, if you truly want to know whether your female acquaintance truly harbors feelings for you or if she was just putting on a show, perhaps you will have better success by wearing a mask?"
Jiu Fang Yunfei was deeply moved when he heard these words. He grabbed the mask and put it on his face. Immediately, his appearance changed completely.
However, he still appeared to be confident and at ease. As Qin Wushuang had the Illusion Heart Mask, of course he had changed his appearance freely. With a slight change, he had turned into a completely different person. Not to mention that Tian Mingshan and his people would not be able to recognize them, even disciples from the Qin Clan might not recognize him.
After the two of them had changed their appearance, they took a few indirect routes to arrive outside the other entrance of the valley. On top of this slope there sat martial artists from all around the area. Judging from each of their appearances, clearly they had gone through meticulous decoration and cared a lot about their appearance.
As one looked across, each of them appeared as refined as a young master with an elegant demeanor. Of course, a few of them did not appear to be young; however, it did not influence them to be anything but confident.
Suddenly, Qin Wushuang narrowed his eyes in a line as he saw a few other familiar faces. These people were walking over from a distant road.
The person walking in the front was Xin Wuji, the son of the Heavenly Emperor!
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang was slightly shocked. He thought that could it be that this Xin Wuji has dropped to the nearby area? Among the three people next to Xin Wuji, one of them was Yan Qiansui, the core disciple of the Heavenly Punishing Villa. The other one was Lei Hong, the core disciple of the Sound of Thunder Sect!
The last person was another core disciple of the Heavenly Emperor Xin Clan, Xin Wuwang.
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang felt astonished. How had these four gathered together? Could that Immortal Leaf Flying Boat have thrown them down to the same place?
Qin Wushuang was full of questions, yet he did not bat an eyelid. For these four people, the other three would be alright. This Xin Wuji was no ordinary figure. He was unquestionably, the number one among the young generation of the Xuan Yuan Mound. He possessed the strength that was at the peak of the Common Mysterious. Qin Wushuang was confident that if he were to become enemies with this Xin Wuji, most likely he would be less strong than him.
As he saw Xin Wuji hanging out with Yan Qiansui and Lei Hong, Qin Wushuang paid more attention. There was always the suspicion that a background supporter behind the Sound of Thunder Sect and the Heavenly Punishing Villa fighting against the Qin Clan was the Heavenly Emperor Xin Clan.
This was a truth not open to the public. Now, they were far in the Illusion Heavenly Lake and not restrained by the Xuan Yuan Mound. If a conflict were to rise, it would be possible if they were to seize this opportunity and lash out at Qin Wushuang.
After all, the three laws issued by the Heavenly Emperor had already lost their effect. Since they were in a strange foreign land, those from the Xuan Yuan Mound would find it difficult to investigate if a conflict were to arise.
Of course, Qin Wushuang had not feared this Xin Wuji. He just did not want to create a big fuss for now.
If he were to turn hostile with Xin Wuji, it would certainly be a wretched victory even if he were to win. He would also have to use the Sky Pilfered Pill to initiate his strength and to get upgraded to the Perfect Void Martial Stage. It would only work if he were to summon the two sealed spiritual beasts. Or else, it would be tough to win against Xin Wuji!
Qin Wushuang debated for a moment, but decided to wait for the cat to jump.
When Jiu Fang Yunfei saw Xin Wuji and the others, his expression also changed slightly. He turned around and did not look into the eye with Xin Wuji and the others. He wanted to avoid letting Xin Wuji become aware of his observation.
He sent his voice to Qin Wushuang, "Brother Wushuang, why has the son of the Heavenly Emperor appeared here?"
Qin Wushuang sent his voice back, "He should be in a similar situation as me and has also drifted here unintentionally. Don't worry, we are wearing masks, so they can't recognize us."
Jiu Fang Yunfei was rather not scared. It was because he knew Xin Wuji, even though he might not know of him.
Xin Wuji and the others walked up the slope and did not appear to be ruling as a despot back at the Heavenly Emperor Mountain. On the contrary, they appeared to be keeping an extreme low-profile. Clearly, they did not intend to stand out.
Just as these four sat on the slope, a person suddenly ran up to them from beneath the mountain. Carrying a smile on his face, he walked over with an ineffable and pleasant expression towards Xin Wuji and the other three. He called out, "Brother Yan, do you remember me? Brother Yan?"
When this person called Brother Yan, of course he was talking to Yan Qiansui.
Xin Wuji looked at Yan Qiansui with a confused look, for how could he know this person at this place?
Yan Qiansui also felt somewhat surprised as he whispered, "This guy seems to be a disciple from the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect? He was called Luo Zhong?"
When Qin Wushuang saw Luo Zhong, he also found him to appear somewhat familiar. Then, he remembered that back at the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect when he had broken out of the earth, this person was among the exterior encircling!
