Chapter 2091 Raw 2196 : Azure Mountain Town
Chapter 2091 (Raw 2196): Azure Mountain Town
Xiao Chen pushed off the air and hovered there, looking at his surroundings.
“Where is this place?”
Xiao Chen could be sure that this was the Desolate Sea. However, he did not know where in the Desolate Sea.
He found his surroundings somewhat familiar, but most of it was strange.
There was a small city of about five hundred thousand kilometers wide in front of Xiao Chen.
This city was not large, more like a town.
Such a small city was very rare in the Desolate Sea.
The azure mountain?
Xiao Chen spread out his Spiritual Sense and discovered a familiar mountain.
In the four years he had not seen it, the azure mountain had not changed.
Xiao Chen pondered this for a while. It looked like the small village of the past had developed into a city.
No wonder Xiao Chen found it familiar yet strange.
Xiao Chen landed firmly in a good mood. After being trapped for four years, he finally came out.
Furthermore, the village of the past had turned into a city. It seemed to have developed pretty well.
With the Peach Blossom Sovereign Emperor’s promise, no one dared to touch it. Its development was only logical.
Someone’s coming. Furthermore, it is a Sovereign Personage!
Xiao Chen’s expression changed slightly. Then, he instantly executed the Heavenly Dragon Body, changing his physical body into ice crystals, and silently withdrew, disappearing into the darkness of night.
After a while, two figures descended from the air.
One of them wore black clothes and appeared to be older. He exuded a faint Demonic Qi. Xiao Chen recognized this aura; it was a byproduct of the demonic Cultivation Technique of the Heavenly Slaughter Sect, one of the six great Demonic Dao sects.
The other person was a middle-aged man wearing scarlet robes who had an air of nobility.
This person did not look like a member of the Heavenly Slaughter Sect.
“It has been almost four years, and you still have not completed the mission that the Eighth Prince gave you. Elder Sun, I doubt your efficiency,” the scarlet-clad, middle-aged man reprimanded with a cold expression after they landed.
The black-clad old man said helplessly, “It is not that this old man is incapable but that the Peach Blossom Sovereign Emperor promised to protect this place. No one would openly make a move on this Azure Mountain Town. As for doing so in secret, that Qin Zhuolin never leaves the place, so there has been no opportunity to make a move.”
“Humph! You are not even able to accomplish a minor matter, and you return with so many excuses. You disappoint the Eighth Prince. He has already lost his patience. No matter what method you use, you have to accomplish this tonight.”
The scarlet-clad, middle-aged man let out a cold snort. Then, he glanced expressionlessly at the black-clad person and added indifferently, “Do as you deem fit. I already came this time. If the Eighth Prince has to make a move himself, humph! There is no need for you to continue existing.”
The black-clad old man protested hastily, “Milord, you can’t do this. You saw it yourself when we entered the city earlier. There are simply no opportunities to make a move. Once we do, we will definitely be exposed.”
The scarlet-clad, middle-aged man said, “It is fine if we are exposed. How can you accomplish great things if you are not willing to pay the price for it? At that time, I’ll delay Qin Zhuolin, and you make a move. If we are exposed after that, we will just get a scapegoat in the Heavenly Slaughter Sect to apologize to the Peach Blossom Sovereign Emperor. Furthermore, we are not attacking Azure Mountain Town, so it is not too overboard.”
The black-clad old man revealed a conflicted expression, clearly hesitant. There were practically no experts in Azure Mountain Town, and only Qin Zhuolin guarded it. However, the Peach Blossom Sovereign Emperor personally vowed to protect the place.
Taking action in Azure Mountain Town equaled slapping the Peach Blossom Sovereign Emperor’s face.
This scarlet-clad, middle-aged man had a powerful backer and an impressive background. Hence, he did not fear the Peach Blossom Sovereign Emperor too much. However, the black-clad old man could not boast the same.
Nevertheless, offending the Eighth Prince would also result in a bad end for him.
Most importantly, if the black-clad old man could accomplish this, he would gain plenty of benefits.
The black-clad old man paced and pondered for a long time before reaching a decision. He said seriously, “Alright, then. Tonight it is! However, let’s set this clear first. If we are exposed, you have to protect me.”
“Don’t worry. It is all about face with the Peach Blossom Sovereign Emperor. At that time, I will bring a scapegoat over to apologize to him, taking the initiative to admit mistakes. Do you think he will kill me with one palm strike after that? I am not trying to destroy this Azure Mountain Town.”
“Alright, let’s do it, then!”
After the two made up their mind, they stopped hesitating and discussed the details. Then, they resumed flying toward Azure Mountain Town.
After the two left, icy light flashed in the pitch-black night. Then, Xiao Chen silently revealed himself.
He frowned slightly. What are those two people going to Azure Mountain Town for?
The black-clad old man was a Small Perfection Sovereign Personage. Coincidentally, Xiao Chen had met him before.
Back when Xiao Chen destroyed the nearby Heavenly Slaughter Sect branch strongholds, during the most dangerous instance, three Sovereign Personages had surrounded him, and this old man had been one of them.
However, this old man was now not even worth mentioning before Xiao Chen. The one that Xiao Chen paid some attention to was that scarlet-clad, middle-aged man.
The Small Perfection Sovereign Personage Heavenly Slaughter Sect Elder behaved very respectfully towards this scarlet-clad person. This person should have quite an impressive background.
“The Heavenly Slaughter Sect really lingers on, causing trouble. Since I ran into him, he can forget about causing trouble for me.”
Xiao Chen showed a murderous intent on his calm face. He did not have a good impression of the Heavenly Slaughter Sect.
Four years ago, he had destroyed eighty-nine nearby strongholds of the Heavenly Slaughter Sect branch as a late-stage Holy Venerate.
He had long known what kind of people this group was. They were willing to do anything to achieve their goals—nurture bandits, commit all sorts of evil, not even letting the elderly, women, and children off.
For the sake of cultivating their Demonic Dao Cultivation Techniques, they reared children like sheep, utterly heartless and inhumane.
Xiao Chen hid his aura and quickly followed.
When he approached Azure Mountain Town, he was surprised to discover a formation protecting it.
This should be Qin Zhuolin’s doing. This person was really a good friend. Believing that Xiao Chen died, he helped protect Azure Mountain Town until now.
However, this protective formation mainly targeted Desolate Slaves and the other unclean things that came out at night.
It would not be much of a barrier against Sovereign Personages.
With the Peach Blossom Sovereign Emperor’s promise, no one would logically come to cause trouble.
Under the moonlight, the citizens of the small city had already gone to sleep.
The entire city appeared quiet and peaceful.
Xiao Chen tailed the two into the city. He saw the two in front exchange some words after entering the city and then part.
Xiao Chen thought for a while before deciding to follow the black-clad old man.
The scarlet-clad, middle-aged man should be going to look for Qin Zhuolin.
Given Xiao Chen’s understanding of Qin Zhuolin, the Geomaster would not be in danger even if he was not the scarlet-clad man’s opponent.
Even today, Xiao Chen still found this Qin Zhuolin somewhat mysterious and unfathomable.
It was already late in the night. The city was pitch-dark; every family had already doused their lamps.
Only a rather tall pavilion still had lamps lit. That was where Qin Zhuolin stayed.
Sang and Qin Zhuolin drank together in the pavilion, chatting casually.
These two were the ones who developed this Azure Mountain Town. Over the past few years, the two had deepened their friendship significantly.
Qin Zhuolin drained the wine in his cup in one go. He asked softly, “Sang, are you sure that Xiao Chen is still alive?”
Sang nodded and retorted, “You have already asked this several times. I am very sure that he is alive.”
The Propping Mulberry Tree was still in the Divine Universe Stele. Using that faint connection, he could faintly feel Xiao Chen’s aura.
Sang was very sure that Xiao Chen was alive. However, he had no idea where Xiao Chen was.
For the past four years, Qin Zhuolin had been feeling very guilty.
He regretted his decision from back then. He should not have let Xiao Chen go down with him.
He could not make use of his previous experience and strength in the Heavenly Dao Killing Formation.
In the end, Qin Zhuolin walked out alone. However, there had been no news for the past four years.
It would be hard for Qin Zhuolin not to feel guilty. He could not forgive himself.
“No matter what, it has been four years. It is time he came out already,” Qin Zhuolin muttered. If it were him, he would have gone crazy if he had been trapped for four years.
Even if one did not die, getting trapped, unable to come out, was torture.
Suddenly, the expressions of Qin Zhuolin and Sang changed at the same time.
Qin Zhuolin said indifferently, “Come out, then; stop hiding.”
The light flickered as the lamp’s flame swayed. The scarlet-clad, middle-aged man appeared from nowhere. He looked at Qin Zhuolin and said, “You truly live up to being the Big Dipper Gate’s only successor. I only just arrived, yet Young Master Qin already discovered me.”
“A person of the Xuewu Dynasty?”
When Qin Zhuolin saw the scarlet-clad person, he felt slightly startled. Then, he smiled mockingly. “Interesting. To think that such an isolated place like Azure Mountain Town could attract the attention of someone from the Xuewu Dynasty’s royal court.”
Simultaneously, Qin Zhuolin sent a voice projection to Sang, This person might still have companions. Go and take a look. I’ll deal with him.
Alright, Sang replied and prepared to leave silently.
“Haha, just stay here. Don’t think about leaving.”
The scarlet-clad, middle-aged man laughed maniacally. Then, he clapped his hands, and wriggling blood formed a barrier, isolating this space.
Sang punched the barrier, and the sticky blood barrier wriggled. This made Sang feel like he was pounding cotton, utterly helpless.
“My Filthy Blood Barrier has reached the sixth layer. Even a Peak Sovereign Personage might not be able to break it. You two should just give up and accompany me here. If you show me a good attitude, I will not make a move against the two of you.” The scarlet-clad, middle-aged man smiled faintly, his face glowing with confidence.
