War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens Chapter 1806
The group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials, including Mansion Master Meng Qing, rushed here because they heard Xu Jing had been rescued from this place.
However, when they arrived, they realized another person had also gone missing. Moreover, it happened to be the person who was supposed to be on duty. It was none other than Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace!
“Lord Mansion Master! Lord Mansion Master!” As the atmosphere in the secret underground room turned tensed, a harried voice sounded from outside.
“Ji’er?” Upon hearing this familiar voice, Zhao Jin and Zhao Deng exchanged glances. They could see the astonishment in each other eyes.
Why did he come now?
Soon after, Zhao Ji appeared in front of the group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials, gasping for breath.
“Ji’er, why did you come here for? This is not a place where you should come!” Zhao Deng said angrily as he glared at Zhao Ji.
It was acceptable for him to come when Zhao Deng was on duty previously. However, the Mansion Master and the others were present today. Moreover, the atmosphere was not very good at the moment. He was afraid his son’s presence would further infuriate the Mansion Master.
At this moment, Zhao Jin also said, “Ji’er, listen to me! Go back!”
“Lord Mansion Master!” However, Zhao Ji ignored his grandfather and father. His eyes were focused on Meng Qing who was looking at him with a grim expression. “I saw Palace Master Zhu of Heaven Palace bringing a person with him as he headed north. A few patrolling elders and more than ten patrolling disciples were all injured by him!”
Swish! Swish! Swish!
The moment his words left his mouth, the group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials, including Meng Qing, turned horrified immediately.
‘This is an inside job!’ At this moment, these five words appeared in the minds of the group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials.
Meng Qing disappeared like a gust of wind before the crowd’s eyes.
“Let’s go!” Gu Ci Yun and Zhao Jin, the two Guardians of Mystical Sky Mansion also left, and the remaining Vice Mansion Masters followed suit.
With a raise of his hand, Zhao Deng brought Zhao Ji along with him. As he followed the crowd, he asked, “Ji’er, did you really see clearly? Did Palace Master Zhu really bring a man in the north direction?”
“Father, I really don’t dare to joke when it comes to matters like this. Currently, the patrolling elders should be on their way here as well,” Zhao Ji said solemnly, “Father, is the man that Palace Master Zhu brought with him Xu Jing, the Young Mansion Master of Rising Sky Mansion?”
“Yes.” Zhao Deng’s eyes gleamed coldly. “I can’t believe Zhu Lu Qi is actually so bold. To think he actually dared to bring Xu Jing away. It seems like he has obtained information regarding the Devil Dao Cultivation Method from Xu Jing! That Devil Dao Cultivation Method is most likely the inhumane kind of cultivation method!”
In just a blink of an eye, Zhao Deng quickly came to a conclusion.
This shocked Zhao Ji and made him break out in cold sweat.
On the way there, the group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials led by Mansion Master Meng Qing encountered a Mystical Sky Mansion’s elder who came from the north.
This Mystical Sky Mansion’s elder was pale, and it was obvious that he had suffered quite a serious injury.
“Lord Mansion Master, Palace Master Zhu had forcefully brought Xu Jing away and injured us. This is the jade token he asked me to pass to you, Lord Mansion Master!” After the Mystical Sky Mansion’s elder saw Meng Qing, he quickly passed the jade token in his hand to him.
Meng Qing took the jade token with a grim expression on his face before activating the energy in his body and infused it into the jade token.
He did not bother to conceal the message in the jade token.
“Lord Mansion Master, the cultivation method that Xu Jing cultivated is the Devouring Dark Devil Technique that was infamous in the Lower Province many years ago. Even if the Mystical Sky Mansion obtains such a brutal and wicked cultivation method, it’s destined to be sealed away. For this reason, I’ve taken Xu Jing away since I need the Devouring Dark Devil Technique! Only by cultivating the Devouring Dark Devil Technique I’ll be able to wash away the shame that Feng Bu Yi brought me!” Zhu Lu Qi’s voice resonated in the air. “Initially, I thought it would be impossible for me to seek revenge from Feng Bu Yi in this life. However, the Devouring Dark Devil Technique has given me hope! I’ve pondered over it for a long time and finally decided to bring Xu Jing away so that I can master the Devouring Dark Devil Technique! Don’t worry, Lord Mansion Master, after I’ve mastered the Devouring Dark Devil Technique, I’ll find a way to get rid of Xu Jing since he’s a great threat to our Mystical Sky Mansion… From today onward, I, Zhu Lu Qi, will leave the Mystical Sky Mansion. Whatever I do in the future has absolutely nothing to do with the Mystical Sky Mansion! I hope Lord Mansion Master won’t make things difficult for my disciples for my sake, if not then for the contributions to the Mystical Sky Mansion and Heaven Palace I’ve made in the past. They’re all innocent, and I’ve let them down!”
Zhu Lu Qi’s voice also came to an end here.
Devouring Dark Devil Technique!
At this moment, everyone on the scene, except Zhao Ji, turned pale and bewildered.
To them, the Devouring Dark Devil Technique was a legendary cultivation method. Its cultivation process was inhumane and barbarous, causing people to shudder.
The Devil Cultivator who once cultivated this Devil Technique had also become the public’s enemy. There was no place for him in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land at all.
However, even when that Devil Cultivator was attacked on all sides and was surrounded and pursued by many elite powerhouses in the Lower Province, he still managed to kill many powerhouses at the peak of the Exemplary Saint Stage just by relying on his cultivation base that was also at the peak of the Exemplary Saint Stage!
As for the other powerhouses who were killed by him, there were so many of them that it was completely uncountable!
That battle could be considered as one of the biggest battles in many years in the Lower Province!
Even then, the Devil Cultivator who cultivated the Devouring Dark Devil Technique was not killed. He managed to escape to the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land although he was heavily injured.
Ever since then, that Devil Cultivator had become infamous in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Naturally, this infamous person was cursed by the later generations since he had cruelly killed countless young women while he cultivated the Devouring Dark Devil Technique.
Each and every young woman who was alive had their vital energy and blood devoured by him until they became dried corpses!
His crime had already reached a level where it roused the anger of immortals and mortals alike!
It was precisely because of the commotion caused by that Devil Cultivator that the Devouring Dark Devil Technique that he cultivated was also well-known. Everyone in that generation treated it as a great scourge!
Even after so many years had passed, the infamy of this Devil Dao cultivation method, the Devouring Dark Devil Technique, was even known by the later generations.
It was only natural that the Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials had heard of this cultivation method as well.
It was precisely because of this, they were bewildered when they found out the cultivation method that Xu Jing cultivated was actually the Devouring Dark Devil Technique.
“Idiot! Senior Brother Zhu is an idiot!” In the end, Qian Ping Sheng, the Palace Master of Yellow Palace, who regained his senses first said with a grim expression, “Even if he has obtained the Devouring Dark Devil Technique, he would become the public’s enemy in the entire Lower Province and the entire Dao Martial Saint Land in the future. Is this even worth it just for the sake of that small dispute he had with Feng Bu Yi, the Deputy Leader of the Mountainshade Black Market?”
“In Feng Bu Yi’s opinion, heck, even in our opinion, the dispute between Senior Brother Zhu and Feng Bu Yi is a small one. However, if we think from his point of view, even if I die, I would feel very unresigned being humiliated by Feng Bu Yi in such a manner!” The Palace Master of Earth Palace chimed in, “For this reason, although it’s surprising that Senior Brother Zhu would resort to this, it’s not entirely inexcusable!”
“Is it really worth it to become everyone’s enemy just for Feng Bu Yi?” The Palace Master of Mystical Palace sighed.
“Mansion Master, Zhu Lu Qi has kidnapped Xu Jing and took away the Devouring Dark Devil Technique! He has committed the most heinous crime. We need to sentence him to death once we capture him!” Guardian Zhao Jin said as he looked at Meng Qing with a hint of coldness in his eyes.
“Palace Master Zhu had announced his departure from the Mystical Sky Mansion because he’s worried that the Mystical Sky Mansion would be implicated as well when news about him cultivating the Devouring Dark Devil Technique spread out. Although his action is extreme, we have to acknowledge that he’s still thinking about the Mystical Sky Mansion until the very end. For this reason, I think it’ll be enough for us to capture Palace Master Zhu and stop him from cultivating the Devouring Dark Devil Technique. His crime is not so serious that he deserves to be sentenced to death!” The other Guardian, Gu Ci Yun, expressed his opinion.
The two great Guardians had expressed their opinions, but their opinions were completely different.
Zhao Jin’s expression was grave as he glared at Gu Ci Yun. He was about to speak up again when the group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials present on the scene expressed their opinions as well.
“I agree with Guardian Gu!”
“I support Guardian Gu as well!”
Most of the Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials present supported Gu Ci Yun’s opinion, causing Zhao Jin to swallow the words he was about to say.
Although it was difficult for him to maintain his calm, there was nothing he could do.
Regardless if Gu Ci Yun’s strength and position in the Mystical Sky Mansion were in no way inferior to him, he could not make the decision since everyone was supporting Gu CI Yun.
“I believe if the cultivation method Xu Jing cultivated is not the Devouring Dark Devil Technique but a normal Devil Dao Cultivation Method, Palace Master Zhu wouldn’t have taken such a risk out of desperation. In view of Palace Master Zhu’s explanation, I’ll spare his life! However, he has to be punished. Two Guardians, both of you will be in charge of capturing Palace Master Zhu back here.” Under the watchful eyes of the others, Meng Qing, the Mansion Master of the Mystical Sky, finally made a decision.
Although he did not agree with Gu Ci Yun’s opinion out loud, his orders seemed to quite similar to Gu Ci Yun’s opinion.
“Yes, Mansion Master.” Meng Qing was not only revered in the Mystical Sky Mansion, but he was also the strongest person in the mansion. Even Gu Ci Yun and Zhao Jin, the two great Guardians, were not as strong as him.
For this reason, both of them did not dare dally once they received his order.
The proceeded to head north after they had given their replies.
After Gu Ci Yun and Zhao Jin left, Meng Qing swept a glance at everyone present and said in a deep voice, “Don’t tell anyone about what happened today! Whoever violates this will be killed!”
“Yes!” Everyone nodded solemnly when they heard Meng Qing’s order. They knew it would only cause trouble for the Mystical Sky Mansion if the incident today spread out.
As members of the Mystical Sky Mansion, naturally, they did not wish for something to happen to the Mystical Sky Mansion.
‘That Gu old fellow and my grandfather are personally making a move… Will Palace Master Zhu be able to escape?’ Zhao Ji stood by Zhao Deng’s side and looked north as he worried about this matter.
