Now 20 days had passed, and the Godhead’s dimension was as peaceful as before, while Xu Que still hadn’t come out of it. The people outside were really sick of waiting.
Ji Wuyun shook his head. In the end, he chose to leave. Even though 20 days weren’t an overly long period for cultivators, Ji Wuyun was a genius of the Dark Shadow Pagoda and he had many fortuitous opportunities he must chase after. He couldn’t waste his time here. Moreover, Xu Que had promised him that he would seek him out in the Qisha Celestial Realm and give him back his Celestial Artifact. At that time, they would get to see each other again. So, after Ji Wuyun waited for more than 20 days, he couldn’t wait any longer. He led his faction members with him and left.
Only Bai Cailing and the other women from the Jade Lake who were traveling with her, Buttface, Duan Jiude, Mo Junchen, and Liu Jingning were left outside the Secret Door. Bai Cailing had obviously stayed here because she still needed Xu Que’s help treating the peach tree garden, while she sincerely hoped that he wouldn’t suffer any mishaps. However, now that more than 20 days had passed without anything occurring, she was quite worried about him. As for Buttface, he was quite relaxed, and for the past few days he crouched here and made either barbecue or hotpot, while he chuckled carelessly.
Duan Jiude couldn’t stand watching Buttface any longer, and he asked him, “Buttface, are you taking joy in his misfortune?”
“Taking joy in his misfortune? What do you mean by that?” Buttface was taken aback. He almost choked because a huge piece of meat was still inside his mouth.
“You have the nerve to ask that? He’s facing a life-or-death trial inside, so you should at least act like you are nervous,” the dumbfounded Duan Jiude answered. He felt that Buttface had gone too far overboard! Buttface wore a startled look, and he said, “What life-or-death trial? He sent me a sound transmission more than ten days ago. He wasn’t just safe, he had gotten a great lucky chance. He asked us to wait for a while, and he would come out after seizing that lucky chance. Why should I be nervous?”
SWOOSH! When everyone heard what Buttface had said, they all sent Buttface dirty looks. HICCUP! “Why…why are you all looking at me like that? Did you want some meat?” Buttface was so scared that he shivered, while he took out the piece of meat in his mouth and presented it to the crowd.
“F*ck!” Duan Jiude was the first person to scold Buttface, and he said, “The guy asked you to notify us that he was safe, so why didn’t you inform us earlier? What the h*ll, it’s only due to this that I didn’t dare to take a meal along with you. You should quickly take out that d*mned meat!”
“What the h*ll! None of you has asked me, so why should I inform you?” Buttface immediately retorted back, while he still stuffed the piece of meat into his mouth, before he turned his head around and ran away.
“Sirs, we should quickly attack and beat him,” Duan Jiude spoke angrily and broke into a run, while he asked the others to help him. Everyone really wanted to give Buttface a beating because he hadn’t reported the current situation to them, and they had ended up worrying in vain for more than ten days. But soon they calmed down and decided they wouldn’t really chase after Buttface and beat him. Needless to say the Jade Lake people were relieved, as Xu Que’s safety implied that there was still hope for their peach trees’ recovery. Lin Jingning heaved a sigh of relief. She didn’t want Xu Que to lose his life from saving her, and, after she learned that Xu Que was safe and sound, she could finally relax.
For the past ten days, the ancient battlefield’s ruins had been quite peaceful, while the outside world seemed to have already descended into chaos. The Divine Farmer Clan’s genius, Yi Zhong, had died, and his corpse had been removed by the Guardians. Innumerable cultivators witnessed this sight, and their expressions changed drastically due to it. Many people assumed that Yi Zhong had been killed by the ancient ruins’ restrictions, but the talented youths that came out later brought with them the shocking news that Yi Zhong had been killed by Xu Que’s father!
Innumerable cultivators in the vicinity of the ruins were dumbfounded. They had seen an old man following the Jade Lake’s women and entering the ruins. But that old man was only at the Half-Celestial Stage, and he seemed so sick that he would die at any moment. No one had taken him seriously! Moreover, most people had only paid attention to that old man because some people had spread a rumor that the Jade Lake’s saint, Bai Cailing, was his daughter-in-law. No one would have expected that Yi Zhong, the genius of the solemn Divine Farmer Clan, could be killed by that old man. This matter was too outrageous and unimaginable! Was a genius at the Heaven Celestial Stage killed by a person at the Half-Celestial Stage? The crowd was confused by this matter, but the talented youths who came out weren’t willing to provide all the facts about the story, and they just left.
The people who were waiting outside the Secret Door became more and more confused by this affair, and they made many guesses about it. Some people believed that Yi Zhong suffered a sneak attack, and that the old man had already been killed by the Divine Farmer Clan’s Guardians. Yet there were also some who believed that Yi Zhong had suffered joint attacks, and it was the old man who delivered the last deadly strike. However, all these guesses seemed too unreasonable, and the conversation continued like this until this day.
Many people were still waiting outside the ruins, and they wanted to wait until the Jade Lake’s members came out so that they could get to know the truth. As for entering the battlefield’s ruins? That was impossible because the great faction members wouldn’t show them the way, while Yi Zhong’s death was like a warning to them. If even the Divine Farmer Clan’s genius had died, how could they still dare to go inside to throw away their lives?
“It’s terrifying, too terrifying! It’s only the Jade Lake and the Dark Shadow Pagoda members who have come out, and it’s unknown what happened inside.”
“Even that dog and Duan Jiude still haven’t come out.”
“If we calculate time carefully, we can discern that ten days has already passed. Did they already have the inheritance inside?”
“It’s implausible. If there was really any inheritance, why would Dishou Mountain and Zhouwang Palace members leave in advance?”
“Well? Wait for a moment! Look over there, the Dark Shadow Pagoda members are coming out.”
“What the h*ll! They really came out. I know that genius, he’s the famous and renowned Ji Wuyun.”
“No kidding! He’s famous and renowned, so who doesn’t know him?”
A commotion arose among the people outside the battlefield’s ruins, and some daring people strode forward. They tried to make inquiries about Yi Zhong’s death. However, Ji Wuyun didn’t say anything about this matter, and, after he came out, he sought the Dark Shadow Pagoda’s elder in charge of leading the team. He was a Taiyi Genuine Celestial, and he had stayed waiting outside.
“What is going on?” When the elder at the Taiyi Genuine Celestial Stage saw Ji Wuyun come out, he frowned and questioned him. After all, Ji Wuyun had come out later than the other factions by more than ten days, and he had even come out empty-handed.
“Some incidents occurred, but they are all beneficial to our Dark Shadow Pagoda, and it could be said that we sowed good karma.” Ji Wuyun revealed a faint smile. Upon hearing this, the elder at the Taiyi Genuine Celestial Stage nodded and didn’t ask any more questions. It was enough for him to hear the outcome. After all, there were many people here, and since Ji Wuyun didn’t want to give information of his own accord, he wouldn’t ask about it. After they went back to the Qisha Celestial Realm, he would find out concrete details about this affair, so he didn’t get anxious over it.
“Ji Wuyun, can you please inform us how Yi Zhong was killed?” At this moment, someone shouted loudly. He wanted to quickly learn the truth. After all, that old man had a sensitive status, and he had come over with the Jade Lake members. Yet he still killed Yi Zhong. Such a matter could give rise to a great war between the Jade Lake and the Divine Farmer Clan. Once those two great factions started fighting, two Celestial Realms would be implicated, and, in the end, the people who would suffer the most were small factions and cultivators who didn’t belong to any factions.
“Knowing too many things about this affair won’t be good for you.” Ji Wuyun shook his head and gave this reply, before he turned around and left.
“But we want to know it, and we have just gotten news yesterday that Yi Zhong’s elder brother is traveling and training in the Tianxiang Celestial Realm. He isn’t too far from this land, and he has already learned that Yi Zhong was killed. He’s now rushing over, and he’s planning to ask for an explanation from the Jade Lake, while he even stated that he would murder the whole family of Xu Que’s father and take revenge for Yi Zhong,” someone said.
Upon hearing this, Ji Wuyun couldn’t help but stop in his tracks, and he shook his head. He turned around and said with a smile, “Yi Zhong’s elder brother? Are you talking about the brute Yi Dan? He, he, you should inform him that if he doesn’t cherish his life, he should go inside.”
