Chapter 1068: We’ve really been cheated terribly!

“Since you don’t know, then die!”
Yue Lingxue let out a long furious roar and gave Lan Changge a kick that sent him very far away. By the time his body reached mid-air, it was already split into pieces, scattering on the ground like a bloody rain.
He furiously shouted, “Everyone present today has a part in this! If you don’t hand over my disciple, none of you will get to live! None of you!”
These words caused the faces of Xiao Clan, Shi Clan, Li Clan and other clans to turn pale instantly.
They thought, ‘Damn it! This time around, we’ve really been cheated terribly!’
Now the crowd finally knew that tonight’s events were all entirely a huge misunderstanding. Or should it be better described as a brutally scheming plot.
Tonight, there was totally nothing about the ‘Holy Tribe Elder’. It was entirely an act to cover up how the Lan Clan wanted to kidnap the disciple of Yue Lingxue and to frame the Ye Clan! It was all about reducing an opponent for the Lan Clan.
However, everyone else being muddle-headed and careless became involved in tonight’s events. Now that it had turned out like this, there was no way for anyone to withdraw themselves out of it!
Obviously, Yue Lingxue had already lost his mind and was half crazy.
Who dared to move even a finger?
Looking back, they thought of how they had gotten themselves into this mess, just because of a small and unlucky matter that had nothing to do with them. Now, they not only got into a feud with Yue Lingxue but also had to sacrifice the lives of multiple martial arts exponents. This really brought them to a helpless state, so miserable that they could not even seem to cry.
What’s this even?!
The slim and graceful figure of Feng Yurou combed through Peaceful Jade Lake at lightning speed. She came back with a heavy heart and shook her head. “Nope, she’s not here!”
Yue Lingxue remained gloomy. He felt that his chest was almost at the point of explosion.
For over ten thousand years, since when had they suffered such humiliation? They were simply being toyed by others! Furthermore, the one who lied and framed them before trying again to use them was the Lan Clan, whom they thought had a reasonably good relationship with.
This was a huge blow to the Moon Breeze couple. It was simply unimaginable for them!
The fact that their beloved disciple was missing, with no news of her whereabouts added on to their stress and they were both at the point of eruption.
“Bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang!”
After a series of nine muffled sounds, Yue Lingxue had already turned around and flew away.
Within these nine muffled sounds, each of the Nine Super Clans had one person dead! Each clan had lost an Eighth Grade Martial Saint exponent!
The whole atmosphere was filled with the smell of blood. Everyone was petrified and dumbstruck looking at Yue Lingxue. One of the top five characters that anyone should never get into trouble with, Yue Lingxue had obviously gone out of control!
He actually started a killing spree! Just like this.
Yue Lingxue looked gloomy. Standing at the center of the yard, the eyes filled with murderous intent glanced at everyone. He said coldly, “I don’t care if you are innocent or not. Since you are here today, it is without a doubt that your motive was to make use of my disciple to force both my wife and myself to do something, that’s all.”
He continued brutally, “However, it has never been our practice to compromise to any threats for the past ten thousand years! From now onwards, after every period of time taken for three breaths, if my disciple has yet to appear, I will make sure each of the Nine Super Clans has one more dead person! This continues until everyone is killed! Once you are all dead, I will settle the scores clan by clan!!”
“Furthermore, it will be an obliteration of your soul and spirit as well! You should very well know that I do not lie.” Yue Lingxue paced up and down and continued indifferently, “For the past ten thousand years, this is the first time I am so enraged. Being able to force me up to this stage of anger, it is considered rare! Not bad! Good ability! Good means! Excellent plotting! Great courage!!”
For every word that he said, it was filled with an additional severity in his tone. At the end of the sentence, the tone was extremely stern and harsh. Every sound was like thunder and every word was like a lightning streak across the sky.
One of the Supreme Martial Artists from Xiao Clan was bold enough to say, “Master Yue, for this matter, we were really unaware of it. This is truly a misunderstanding, we were originally here…”
Ignoring him, Yue Lingxue raised his three fingers and said, “Three breaths of time, shall start now. As long as my disciple appears, I will only pursue this matter with the master culprit. Otherwise, do not blame me for being cruel and merciless!”
He looked towards the sky and gave a loud roar, “One!!”
He retracted one finger.
It was a huge commotion within the crowd. Someone could not help it but shout, “Who took Angel Wu away? It is better if you quickly return her! Otherwise, would you want to implicate all of us to pay with our lives?”
Everyone agreed with what this person said.
At this moment, everyone did not really blame Yue Lingxue for it. Putting themselves in his shoes, if they were Yue Lingxue, they might have been more out of control than him!
He had just been betrayed by someone he trusted and his only satisfactory disciple was now nowhere to be found! Who would not be anxious and angry?
The crowd started to curse and swear at each other. “Who is it that is so wicked and lacking in virtue? It is fine if you want to court your own death, but you had to make us take the balme together!”
“Two!” Yue Lingxue roared again with his anger-filled voice. Then he retracted another finger.
“Master Yue!” One of the elders from Yè Clan said urgently, “Master Yue, you said the time for three breaths. How could it be so quick for a breath to be over? Master Yue… you have counted too quickly…”
Yue Lingxue replied coldly, “What I meant was the time taken for normal people to take three breaths! Would I even refer to the three breaths’ time of a Supreme Martial Artist? In that case, wouldn’t I have to accompany you for three months? Where would I find all this free time?”
Everyone remained silent.
They thought in their mind, ‘So you actually referred to the time taken for normal people to take three breaths… Within a group of Supreme Martial Artist, it is strange for you to actually count time this way.’
“It’s been a while since my last killing spree. Looks like the world has forgotten about me.” Yue Lingxue let out loud laughter and roared, “Three!! Action!”
Feng Yurou stepped up upon hearing the instructions.
“Please wait!” a Supreme Martial Artist from the Shi Clan shouted, “Master Yue, the Dharma Supreme is here. Wouldn’t you give him some respect?”
Yue Lingxue smiled coldly. “Even if the Dharma Supreme were to be riding on your head, today, I will still kill whoever I want! Dharma Supreme? Why should I give him some respect? If others do not give me any respect, then why should they have it?”
“Let’s kill them!” Yue Lingxue ruthlessly gave out the order.
Feng Yurou gracefully flew up and suddenly from her hands came a strong and surging wave of sword light, like the powerful Yangtze River.
The Supreme Martial Artist who spoke about giving some respect to the Dharma Supreme was the first to be killed. His entire body turned into a muddy pile of flesh. Following which, each of the remaining eight clans all had one of their Martial Saints dead!
Yue Lingxue commented, “If you want some respect, then you shall have it. I will let you die before the rest!”
The atmosphere became even heavier.
“One!” Yue Lingxue raised his right hand and erected three fingers. At the corner of his lips, there were traces of a cruel smile.
There was a huge commotion in the crowd and some people began to rant loudly in grief and indignation.
“Who took away Angel Wu? F*ck all your ancestors. A true man should have the responsibility to bear the consequences of his actions. Why don’t you do so now? What is happening now, for you to let other people be killed instead of yourself? Your son will be a bast*rd with no a*shole! You son of a bitch!”
“You scoundrel! Hurry up and send Angel Wu out!”
“Quickly! What’s the point of you holding on to Angel Wu? Master Yue will never take any threats…”
“You are a son of a bitch who deserved to be chopped into pieces!”
Amongst all people present, the Zhuge Clan suffered the most injustice. They were here to maintain order, dissuade people from a fight and mediate matters. Yet, they were somehow dragged into this unreasonable act of Yue Lingxue and now, their people were being killed by him.
This injustice needed no more description of it.
The crowd was in an uproar. Although none of them dared to move, their mouths did not stop moving. Each of them was scolding loudly, with all the different variety of foul words within the sentences.
“Two!” The murderous intent on Yue Lingxue’s face got stronger and stronger with time.
“Wait a moment!” a voice said.
Following which, a few other figures squeezed to the front of the crowd.
Ye Di, Xiao Se, Shi Jing, Li Xiangsi, Ling Fengyun, Chen Mengchi and Ye Qingchou.
Seven of them stood simultaneously in front of their own clan. Ye Di revealed a bitter smile and said, “Master Yue, please shelf aside your anger temporarily and calm down for a moment. Let us re-consolidate what we know about this matter again, shall we? As a mark of respect to the various clans, I hope that you can give us some extension of the deadline.”
Yue Lingxue gave a cold snort and put down his hands. He said, “Ye Di, since you brought out your ancestors as a bargaining chip, I shall give you a chance. However, you need to understand that my disciple is a lady. A lady! And to a lady, what is most fearful of, you should know, right?”
Ye Di hurriedly replied, “Yes, I know. I know. Please be rest assured.”
A murderous intent flashed briefly in the eyes of Yue Lingxue. He said, “If any accident was to happen within this extension of the deadline, then I shall slaughter your Ye Clan! Do you understand this?”
Anger flashed briefly in the bottom of Ye Di’s eyes. He replied, “Thank you for the kind extension.”
“You only have the time for one joss stick to finish burning!” Yue Lingxue placed his hands at the back and said, “After the extension, I would expect to see results. If there isn’t, then regardless of the time for three breaths or not, I will kill everyone present on the spot, no sparing!”
After finishing the sentence, Yue Lingxue and Feng Yurou walked out of the circle together, to somewhere seven or eight feet away from the crowd and looked back to monitor the crowd.
Ye Di and others let out a sigh of relief, as he urgently gathered his own people and members of other clans quickly for a discussion of this matter and to understand what had happened.
However, what all these Second Grandmaster saw was how their own clans had suffered huge casualties and were all in sorry states. They were startled!
These people were all elite members of their respective clans. Now, so many of them were actually killed here! To lose so much of their strength in times of crisis, when the Nine Tribulations Sword Master was just about to charge up to the Upper Three Heavens, it was really a disaster for the various clans.
This was especially so for Xiao Se from Xiao Clan and Ye Di from Ye Clan. Both of them had heard what their clan members described and lifted their heads to look at each other.
It was a long glance full of meaning.
They thought in their minds, ‘Xiao Se, your people killed my grandchildren! They were our future elites whom we have spent many efforts to cultivate!’
‘Ye Di, your people also killed my grandchildren! They were the generation of younger members, whom we have spent many efforts to cultivate and will become the hope of our clan in the future!’
However, it was definitely not a smart move to start calculating who was more right or more wrong in this matter now.
Following which, the crowd rapidly summarized the events of this matter. Upon hearing the summary, Xiao Se, Shi Jing, Ling Fengyun, Li Xiangsi, Chen Mengchi and Ye Qingchou almost fainted on the spot!
If the clans were to get into a brawl over the matter of the Holy Tribe Elder, then it was understandable. However… the main reason for the fight was actually due to them getting cheated of!
There was no such thing as the Holy Tribe Elder at all. They had no idea what went wrong in the minds of their own clan members, that they actually fought without knowing the actual reason for it.
Until now, each of the eight clans had already earned the enmity of the other seven clans. Furthermore, they had not only offended Yue Lingxue and Feng Yurou, but in return, had earned nothing but a belly of unwanted anger.
Even the reason for all these was a laughing stock!
Finally, after some discussion, they consolidated and found a trace of clue. There was a person’s name and at this moment, this name was lodged heavily in the minds of the elites.
The news which the various clans obtained were all gotten from Chu Yang!
