Lord of All Realms - Chapter 1184: A Just Cause Attracts Much Support[Updated at: 2021-01-14 16:03:35]
Luo Wanxiang’s face grew increasingly grim.
The only handle he could hold against Nie Tian was the fact that he sheltered Master Blood Spirit, who was considered a residual evil of the Blood Spirit Sect.
However, who would have thought that Ji Yuanquan from the Void Spirit Society and those important figures from the Five Elements Sect would adopt an ambiguous attitude towards the Blood Spirit Sect, and say that their elimination hadn’t been necessary.
This showed Luo Wanxiang up.
After pondering in silence for a few seconds, Luo Wanxiang let out a cold snort and said, “The Heaven Span Pavilion categorized the Blood Spirit Sect as a crooked sect and initiated a cleansing operation against it. All of the other major sects joined the operation. Now you say that the Blood Spirit Sect didn’t have to be wiped out. Aren’t you saying that the Heaven Span Pavilion was wrong?”
“Not everything we’ve done is right.” A somewhat lazy voice suddenly came from the distance.
The Limpid Cyan Sword morphed into a streak of lightning that scraped the starry sky and arrived in a split second.
Even Chu Rui gasped with astonishment. “That’s the Limpid Cyan Sword! Fan Tianze from the Heaven Span Pavilion!”
Ji Yuanquan from the Void Spirit Society, Hou Chulan, and the elders of the Five Elements Sect all jerked their heads to fix their gazes on Fan Tianze.
Why was he here?
Deeply surprised, Luo Wanxiang frowned and took a deep look at Fan Tianze. “Brother Fan, you...”
Even though they were both at the middle God domain, Luo Wanxiang was well-aware that Fan Tianze not only held seniority over him, but his battle prowess and status in the Heaven Span Pavilion were also something he couldn’t match.
In many juniors’ eyes, Fan Tianze was a legendary figure, as there were lots of incredible stories about him.
However, God domain experts such as Luo Wanxiang, Chu Rui, and Ji Yuanquan knew that not only were all those stories true, but many of them were actually conservative about his abilities.
Therefore, upon seeing Fan Tianze, even Luo Wanxiang felt somewhat apprehensive.
“I’m here for Nie Tian.” After only saying these words to Luo Wanxiang with an expressionless face, Fan Tianze walked directly to Nie Tian and Pei Qiqi. “We meet again, little ones.”
Nie Tian and Pei Qiqi hastily bowed towards him.
Only after sweeping his gaze over Chu Rui, Ji Yuanquan, and the other important members of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace and Five Elements Sect did Fan Tianze take his time to say to Nie Tian, “I’m here because I heard that you had a little conflict over the Blood Spirit Sect. Back in the day, our sect led the cleansing operation against them.
“However, later, we learned that it involved a personal grudge. Someone from our sect had intended to enlist the Blood Spirit Sect into his force and make it his subordinate sect.
“However, the former sectmaster of the Blood Spirit Sect had refused his offer. Ashamed and furious, he befouled the Blood Spirit Sect and forcibly defined it as a crooked sect. Eventually, he launched a joint operation with the other major sects and wiped it out.
“That person died long ago. Back then, I was out on one of my trips, while our sectmaster was in secluded cultivation. Neither of us were able to attend to sect affairs, so we didn’t know about this until later.
“Even though we found out about the hidden reason later, the mistake had been made. And our sect had a name to keep, so we didn’t openly admit to our mistake.”
With these words, Fan Tianze bowed towards Master Blood Spirit, looking rather uncomfortable, and said with a sincere tone, “It was our sect’s mistake that led to the tragedy that happened to the Blood Spirit Sect. I apologize to you on behalf of the Heaven Span Pavilion. But fortunately, you’re still here, and the Blood Spirit Sect got to keep its seeds.”
With these words, he looked at Li Jing and the others from the Blood Sect. Apparently, he meant that the current Blood Sect was the foundation on which the Blood Spirit Sect could rise again.
After he said these words, not only was Luo Wanxiang flabbergasted, but the others were as well.
None of them had expected that the elimination of the Blood Spirit Sect actually had something to do with an influential figure from the Heaven Span Pavilion.
What surprised them even more was that Fan Tianze actually came here to personally admit to the mistake they had made, apologize to Master Blood Spirit, and right the wrong that had been done to the Blood Spirit Sect.
“This is...” Master Blood Spirit trembled as tears welled up in his eyes. He was so emotional that he was at a loss for words.
The dream he had had for ages actually came true? And it happened so easily?!
He even felt that this was too good to be true, and started to think that he might be dreaming.
“The realm where the Blood Spirit Sect was founded is currently in our sect’s domain,” Fan Tianze added. “I made arrangements before I came here. We’ll return that realm to the Blood Spirit Sect, along with all of the other realms that were under its reign. Besides that, our sect will provide compensation.”
“Allow me to thank you on behalf of the Blood Spirit Sect, Senior Fan,” Nie Tian hastily said.
At this moment, Master Blood Spirit was so overwhelmed by his emotions that he couldn’t speak.
“The Void Spirit Society, the Five Elements Sect, and the Heaven Span Pavilion...” Chu Rui from the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace thought to himself as he fixed Nie Tian with a complicated look. “If it weren’t for him, I’d bet the Blood Spirit Sect would never have had a chance to rectify its name. And those three sects would never have attached such importance to a sect they mistakenly wiped out, or its surviving successor.
“I guess I can understand why the Void Spirit Society and the Five Elements Sect would do such a thing to win Nie Tian over, but Fan Tianze too?”
Chu Rui couldn’t figure out a reason for their strange actions.
With a smile, Nie Tian turned to Luo Wanxiang and asked, “Vice Sectmaster Luo, do you still think there’s a problem with Master Blood Spirit practicing cultivation in my territory as my subordinate?”
Luo Wanxiang didn’t know how to respond.
Guan Cong lost his temper and pointed at Li Langfeng. “What about him?! The incantations he practices are very similar to the Heavenly Corpse Sect’s incantations! He must be a residual evil of the Heavenly Corpse Sect!”
Nie Tian let out a cold harrumph. “I can guarantee that the incantations he practices have nothing to do with the Heavenly Corpse Sect. As for the corpse aura he emanates, it comes from a cluster of special flames I accidentally obtained from the Shatter Battlefield. The bottom line is that he hasn’t received any legacy from the Heavenly Corpse Sect, nor has he refined any corpses.”
“But that aura...” Guan Cong attempted to argue.
“Enough!” Luo Wanxiang suddenly lifted his hand to stop Guan Cong from continuing. After a moment of pondering, he said to Nie Tian, “Since the Void Spirit Society, the Five Elements Sect, and the Heaven Span Pavilion all came here to rectify the Blood Spirit Sect’s name, let’s put an end to this matter with the Blood Spirit Sect and Master Blood Spirit. I’ll speak of it no more.”
Nie Tian tilted his chin slightly. “There was nothing to say in the first place.”
Luo Wanxiang took another look at Nie Tian and said, “I’ll take my men away.”
Nie Tian narrowed his eyes, but didn’t say anything.
“Let’s go.” Luo Wanxiang turned around, shot a glance at Guan Cong and the others, and flew off to one of the berthed starships.
Guan Cong sighed and followed along, looking deeply frustrated.
After this incident, he had a strong feeling that Luo Wanxiang’s authority in the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace would suffer a drastic decline.
However, Nie Tian, who was still just a Son of the Stars, would become even more respected, so much so that no one would be able to stop his rise from now on.
Luo Wanxiang wouldn’t be able to, and neither would Chu Rui.
The only ones whose prestige and authority remained higher than his were Ji Cang, who had been missing for a long time, and Mo Heng, who had also disappeared but was clearly on Nie Tian’s side.
Considering this, who would still be able to stop Nie Tian from rising to the position of Lord of the Stars?
