The Husky and His White Cat Shizun - Chap 200
The disciples of Jade Pool Manor would never have thought that their Manor Lord would die before the battle of Phoenix Mountain had even begun.
Although Li Wuxin was already advanced in years and his movements were gradually showing signs of senility, he wouldn’t have died so suddenly if it weren’t for the fact that his meridians were flowing in reverse due to the effects of the boundary nightmare.
After a moment of silence, the Jade Pool Manor disciples all knelt down.
Their cries shook the heavens and everyone was shocked. The disciple who originally wanted to settle the score with Nangong Si couldn’t care about anything else. He cried and crawled back to the Old Manor Lord’s side, wiping his tears with his sleeves.
Suddenly, the huge barrier in front of Phoenix Mountain let out an ear-piercing buzzing sound. Jiang Xi’s expression changed and he sternly said, “Someone fill in Li Wuxin’s position, otherwise we will all die here today!”
Xue Zhengyong simply turned around and shouted, “Yu Heng! Quickly come and help! ”
Chu Wanning naturally didn’t need them to repeat themselves. He was most proficient in barrier techniques. That whistle was the curse left behind by the Evil Phoenix Spirit. To be able to touch this layer of curse meant that the elders were not far from tearing apart the barrier. If they could succeed, then they would succeed. If they couldn’t, then the backlash of this curse would have the power to move mountains and fill seas. It would be even more difficult to escape than the tribulation fire of the Confucian Wind Sect.
He immediately flew over. His gaze was as sharp as a bayonet. He waved his sleeve and raised his hand, fiercely striking the space left behind by Li Wuxin.
As soon as he touched it, Chu Wanning was suddenly shocked. He immediately looked at Huang Xiaoyue who was standing next to him.
He saw that Huang Xiaoyue was sweating profusely and trembling all over. Her face was flushed red, as if she was using all her strength to circulate her energy — the other leaders clearly thought so too.
However, Huang Xiaoyue could deceive others, but she couldn’t deceive the barrier grandmaster Chu Wanning.
As soon as Chu Wanning received Li Wuxin’s burden, he immediately felt that the counterattack from this position was extremely ferocious. In other words, Li Wuxin alone just now had to bear the evil aura of two Sect Masters. It was rare for such a situation to occur in a formation where everyone worked together. There was only one possibility for such a situation to occur, and that was that the caster next to them did not use any power at all.
Huang Xiaoyue was actually just putting on an act!
Chu Wanning was infuriated. His black eyebrows stood erect as he sternly said, “You … how dare you play around!”
“Wh, what …” Huang Xiaoyue gasped for breath, her voice as soft as a mosquito’s buzzing. Her entire body seemed to be on the verge of collapsing to death. When the surrounding sect leaders heard the commotion, those who still had the energy to spare also turned to look.
“Grandmaster, what are you talking about … What kind of joke is this?”
“You know very well what kind of game it is! Get the hell out of here! ”
Xue Zhengyong couldn’t keep his composure and shouted, “Yuheng, why are you being so fierce to Huang Daozhang? Look at him, he can’t even speak. If there’s anything wrong, open the barrier first and then talk about it! ”
Huang Xiaoyue’s eyes drifted. He only glanced at Chu Wanning for a moment before he was frightened by those eyes that were as cold as an unsheathed frost blade.
He didn’t have the strength to open the phoenix barrier at all. The reason why he took the initiative to rush up and help was just to fight for face. Afterwards, he could let the upper cultivation world know that Jiang Dongtang’s strength was still there, and that he, Huang Xiaoyue, still had some skills.
Unexpectedly, Li Wuxin, this good-for-nothing, actually couldn’t bear the evil aura of two people. He was unexpectedly counterattacked by the phoenix barrier and directly died next to him. It was fine if he died, but the person who took his place was Chu Wanning —
This was Grandmaster Chu, who deserved to be cut into pieces!
Huang Xiaoyue’s greasy face was covered with beads of sweat. These beads of sweat were no longer forced out, but cold sweat. He was constantly sweating.
He was thinking, what should I do?
At the critical moment, Huang Xiaoyue fiercely bit his tongue. A stream of blood flowed out, and he let saliva mixed with blood seep into the corner of his mouth.
“Grandmaster … you really misunderstood this old man … After Villa Master Li withdrew his power, this old man really … can’t … can’t …”
He coughed violently, and blood splattered everywhere.
“This old man really can’t take it anymore …”
How could Chu Wanning be fooled?
Li Wuxin and Huang Xiaoyue, it was needless to say who was stronger and who was weaker. If both of them had used all their strength, how could the one who fell first be Li Wuxin?
He waved his sleeve angrily and threw out Heaven’s Inquisition with one hand, which unexpectedly flipped Huang Xiaoyue more than ten feet away.
Jiang Dongtang’s disciples were shocked. They rushed up and surrounded their own senior.
There were also many people who angrily glared at Chu Wanning. “Grandmaster Chu, why are you being so unreasonable?”
“Daoist Huang has already done his best. What right do you have to throw a whip and throw a tantrum as you please?!”
“You think you can bully people just because you have the ability?!”
Chu Wanning turned a deaf ear to these angry shouts and gossips. His heart was full of anger, and his pair of sharp phoenix eyes flashed with a frosty color. Perhaps it was the reflection of the red light of the barrier, but his pupils were even somewhat scarlet.
His voice was quiet, but it was extremely gloomy.
Those who had a little understanding of Chu Wanning knew that there was still room for discussion when he rebuked or scolded. However, once he became like this, he would become cold and oppressive. Then no one could stop him.
If anyone tried to stop him, Heaven’s Inquisition would probably take that person’s life.
Xue Zhengyong muttered, “Yu Heng … what’s going on …”
“Huang Xiaoyue, did you really use half an inch of your strength to open the Phoenix Barrier?” Chu Wanning’s hand that was covering the barrier was so angry that the veins on his hand bulged. “When Li Wuxin couldn’t bear it anymore, did you really share the burden for him?!”
“What are you talking about?!”
The female disciples of Jiang Dongtang screamed.
“Our Daoist Huang has already vomited blood, and you still say that he didn’t do his best? Do you have to see him die like Villa Master Li before you’re satisfied? ”
Chu Wanning’s black eyebrows were burning. Just as he was about to speak again, the Heavenly Barrier in front of him suddenly shook violently. The palms of all the sect leaders were wrapped in a blood-red light.
Jiang Xi immediately said, “Focus! It’s the last layer! It’s about to be torn apart! ”
Chu Wanning was no longer in the mood to argue with that group of lunatics. She turned around and focused her gaze. Placing her hands on top of each other, she placed her hands on top of the barrier. Her vigorous spiritual energy, filled with raging flames, fiercely entered the crack.
There was a loud bang.
The earth shook.
A huge gap appeared in the barrier of Mount Huang. It was about eight feet high and could allow five people to pass through side by side.
Xue Zhengyong said happily, “It’s open, it’s open! The barrier is open! ”
He was close to the gap and immediately stuck his head out to take a look. However, he suddenly felt a black and red miasma rushing towards him. He couldn’t help but shout, “Why is it so smelly?!”
The other cultivators didn’t care about Bi Tan Village and Jiang Dongtang. They all rushed over to take a look.
Wubei Temple’s Abbot Xuanjing was the most sensitive to this. He turned the prayer beads in his hand and said in a low voice, “It’s a place of corpses. I’m afraid there are more corpses and resentment on Mount Huang than we thought. ”
Jiang Xi said with a gloomy face, “It seems that Xu Shuanglin, that rat crossing the street, is indeed hiding in this lousy mountain.” As he spoke, he turned his head and said, “Everyone, listen up. Those who were injured before, those who were scared, those who were useless, and those who were pretending. ”
When he said “pretending”, his cold and deep eyes glanced at Huang Xiaoyue who was lying on the ground. Then, he sneered almost imperceptibly.
“These people will stay at the foot of the mountain. The rest will follow me up the mountain. ”
When Xue Meng saw Chu Wanning enter the gap, he immediately wanted to follow him. However, he found that Mo Ran was not by his side. He looked around and found that there was a commotion where Nangong Si was. It turned out that the disciples of Bi Tan Village hated Nangong Si even more after their grief. Although Chu Wanning had set up a barrier there, Nangong Si was still surrounded by a group of twisted and ferocious faces. Every bright red tongue was cursing and spitting.
Xue Meng said anxiously, “Mo Ran, what are you doing there? Everyone is going up the mountain. Hurry up and follow! ”
“You go first. Protect Shizun and Shi Mei. If you can’t handle it, report to me immediately.”
Xue Meng had no choice but to leave first.
At this time, only the people of Bi Tan Village and Jiang Dongtang were left at the foot of the mountain. Mo Ran withdrew his gaze from Xue Meng’s back and said, “I know how you feel, but the sword manual was not Young Master Nangong’s doing. If you want to settle the score, at least wait until you catch Xu Shuanglin.”
“These are two different things. Whether it’s Xu Shuanglin or Nangong Si, neither of them can escape!”
“That’s right! Both of them will pay the price! ”
Zhen Congming was one of the more rational people here. He glared at Mo Ran with red eyes. “Grandmaster Mo, you’re a Grandmaster now. Your Master is also a Grandmaster. Is this how you two Grandmasters protect criminals and commit irregularities?”
Mo Ran said, “I just want you to be fair. If you really want to get to the bottom of this matter, you should follow the rules of the cultivation world and send Xu Shuanglin and the others to the Heavenly Sound Pavilion for questioning. The Ten Great Sects will discuss this matter together and decide on a fair judgment. Now you want to rush up and tear a person who doesn’t intend to fight back into ten thousand pieces. What’s the point? ”
Zhen Congming, “…”
Someone shouted, “What Ten Great Sects? Nine! Can the Confucian Wind Sect be considered a sect? ”
Zhen Congming suddenly said, “It’s eight.” There were bloodstains on his face. He had wiped them off for his Master and then wiped away his tears. The bloodstains made him look very miserable and at a loss. “It’s eight sects. … Blue Pool Manor also has no leader. ”
“Senior Martial Brother …”
He didn’t pay attention to the cries of his junior martial brothers. He slowly turned his head and looked at Mo Ran. “After the Heaven-Splitting Battle, Master once said that the Life and Death Summit was a fair sect. Now it seems that he was wrong about you guys. ”
Mo Ran, “…”
Zhen Congming asked, “Grandmaster Mo, are you sure you want to protect these two bastards from the Confucian Wind Sect today?”
Before Mo Ran could answer, Nangong Si said in a hoarse voice, “Mo Ran, go away.”
Ye Wangxi half-knelt by Nangong Si’s side and helped him up. It was really hard on her. She didn’t cry or feel helpless, but her voice was also hoarse. “Young Master Mo, go up the mountain. This matter has nothing to do with you.”
Mo Ran glanced sideways and said, “Did you worship my Master for nothing? Since you’re a member of my sect, how can this matter have nothing to do with me? ”
Nangong Si, “You —”
Mo Ran turned his head and looked at Zhen Congming’s face again. At this time, it wasn’t just the people from Blue Pool Manor in front of him. Jiang Dongtang’s disciples also surrounded him like a tiger watching its prey.
Huang Xiaoyue, supported by two female disciples, pretended to stagger closer. He gasped for breath, opened his eyes, and glared at Mo Ran. Then he waved away the two disciples on his left and right. He pointed his finger fiercely and said, “Since childhood, this old man has been influenced by the righteousness of the upper cultivation world. How can I just sit by and watch you act like this?!”
Mo Ran coldly said, “Huang Daozhang is indeed a role model in the upper cultivation world. Just now, you were struggling at death’s door, but in less than the time it takes to burn a stick of incense, you’re actually able to stand up and begin to enforce justice on behalf of the heavens. I really admire you. ”
“You — cough, cough, cough!!” Huang Xiaoyue seemed to be extremely angry. He clutched his chest and coughed until the sky turned dark. His acting was very good, but Mo Ran didn’t even bother to look at him.
Blue Pool Manor’s green-robed disciples and Jiang Dongtang’s purple-robed disciples surrounded the three people in a circle. They approached step by step, but no one made the first move.
Everyone knew that once this move was made, it would be difficult to take back the spilled water.
Zhen Congming said in a low voice, “Grandmaster Mo, I’ll ask you one last time. Are you really not going to move aside? ”
Before Mo Ran could answer, a sharp voice suddenly came from the front. He didn’t know which female cultivator made the sound, but soon after, a pile of blurry black-gray mud and stones surged out from the crack in Mount Huang’s barrier.
Huang Xiaoyue said in shock, “What’s that? A landslide? ”
Mo Ran narrowed his eyes.
It wasn’t a landslide.
Everyone quickly saw it clearly and sucked in a breath of cold air.
What surged out from the crack was wave after wave of zombies that had been burned to charcoal! These zombies’ arms were stuck to their arms, and their flesh was stuck to their flesh. Thick water was still oozing out of them, so they could barely see their faces.
“Wah —” Immediately, someone couldn’t take it anymore. He bent over and vomited.
“This is too damn disgusting …”
“Are these all over the mountain?”
“How many corpses should there be …”
Mo Ran was also shocked. At this time, a heavy muffled sound came from the sky. The barrier that the Elders had just torn open was now moving again. Slowly, it seemed like it was about to close —
This barrier could actually heal itself! Not long after it was torn open, it would close again, preventing more people from entering!
Mo Ran said anxiously, “Let’s go up the mountain first. We’ll talk about our grudges later. Xu Shuanglin is on the mountain. Are we just going to let the main culprit go and not catch him? ”
The people of Bi Tan Manor hesitated, but Huang Xiaoyue twisted his beard and sneered, “Almost all the experts in the world are on that mountain. We don’t have to worry about not being able to catch Xu Shuanglin. However, these two kids from the Confucian Wind Sect are too slippery. They run as fast as loaches. If we let them go by mistake, we won’t have another chance in the future. ”
“… Huang Xiaoyue.” Mo Ran was furious. A red light flashed in his hand, and he summoned the ghost. “Have you had enough?!”
The more than a hundred people in front of him saw him summon the Divine Martial Skill. They all pulled out their swords and raised their weapons. They stared at him with extreme vigilance.
Mo Ran knew that this time, he would definitely not be able to escape a fierce battle. He was fine, but according to these people’s thoughts, he was afraid that in the future, he would be considered to be at the pinnacle of life and death …
However, at this time, he suddenly heard a deep and cold voice from behind him.
“Everyone, please go up the mountain. Nangong Si will wait here. He won’t run away.”
Huang Xiaoyue said, “Little kid, you speak so casually. Why should I believe you? Could it be that you really can draw a circle around the prison and not leave just because you say so? ”
Nangong Si looked at him coldly. He stood up from the ground, then suddenly raised his hand and pushed Ye Wangxi out of the barrier set up by Chu Wanning.
This barrier could only allow the people inside to leave. The people outside couldn’t enter.
Nangong Si stood alone inside and slowly pulled out his sword. The bright light of the sword illuminated his face inch by inch.
His chin, his lips, the tip of his nose.
Ye Wangxi already understood what he was going to do. He fiercely hammered the barrier and shouted, “Don’t mess around!”
“When my ancestor established the sect, there was a teaching: Greed, resentment, deceit, murder, rape, and plunder are the seven things that I, a scholar, cannot do.” Nangong Si said, “My father was unvirtuous and violated this teaching. However, I have been established for twenty-six years. Although I am arrogant, I have never acted rashly. These seven things cannot be done. I have a clear conscience. ”
With a buzzing sound, the sword flowed out of the sheath like water.
Mo Ran also knew what he was going to do. He tried to undo the barrier set up by Chu Wanning, but the barrier was firm and couldn’t be removed in a short time.
He muttered, “Nangong …”
Nangong Si didn’t even look at Ye Wangxi. He also didn’t pay attention to Mo Ran. He said, “Today, everyone is not willing to believe me. I have no other choice. Fortunately, I have learned the Imprisonment Technique. Now that I am imprisoned here, I ask everyone not to implicate the innocent. I, Nangong Si, will draw a circle on the ground and await everyone’s return. ”
Before the voice disappeared, blood spurted out.
Nangong Si’s sword was instantly nailed to the ground, half of it buried in the ground.
At the same time, Nangong Si’s left hand was also nailed to the ground.
He actually nailed his hand to the ground like a snake’s vital point. Lightning flashed on the sword, and the spell of the Imprisonment Spell flew in all directions.
Ye Wangxi knelt down. She knelt in front of the barrier.
Nangong Si’s blood flowed down the sword’s hilt and dyed the ground red.
No one could see Ye Wangxi’s expression. Her face was lowered, and only her hands were tightly gripping the barrier. Her knuckles were pale and spasming.
This was the Imprisonment Technique used to nail evil beasts, malicious spirits, and livestock. Almost everyone in the Upper Cultivation World knew how to use it. Everyone could recognize it.
Nangong Si used this Incantation to nail himself.
He was in so much pain that his lips turned blue. He couldn’t stop trembling, but he didn’t cry. After a long time, he raised his face. His eyes were scarlet.
He said, “Let’s go.”
“…” It was rare for Mo Ran to be shocked speechless by someone.
In his previous life, only Ye Wangxi could do it.
And in this life, he saw the person Ye Wangxi loved.
He was once confused as to what exactly Ye Wangxi liked about Nangong Si. Nangong Si was a brainless young master who was only willing to look at faces and liked pretty girls. What exactly did he have that was worthy of Ye Wangxi’s friendship?
However, at that moment, he saw another Ye Wangxi.
The one kneeling, the one in a mess, the one with blood flowing out, but the one who was ruthless to the bone.
“Let’s go!!!” Nangong Si roared. “What else is there to worry about?! Do you want me to nail my legs to the ground too?! Let’s go!! ”
Zhen Congming was the first to turn around.
He returned to Li Wuxin’s corpse, tidied up the Sect Leader’s body, and carried it back.
“Senior Martial Brother!”
“Senior Martial Brother, aren’t we staying?”
“Senior Martial Brother? Are we just going to leave like this? Are we just going to let them go like this — ”
Zhen Congming said, “What’s the point of staying? We don’t know how long they’ll fight on the mountain. Are we just going to let the Sect Leader lie on the ground like this without even a proper coffin?! ”
The disciples of Jade Pool Manor looked at each other. They lowered their heads and didn’t say anything.
Zhen Congming walked to Mo Ran’s side. When he brushed shoulders with Mo Ran, he said, “Grandmaster Mo, remember what you said. After this battle, we’ll meet at the Heavenly Music Pavilion. ”
“Fortunately. In this world, there’s still the Heavenly Music Pavilion that can uphold justice. ” Someone’s eyes were bright red. It was the disciple who had spat and insulted Chu Wanning. He followed behind his Senior Martial Brother with deep hatred. “The Pavilion Master will definitely handle this matter impartially so that our Master can rest in peace.”
“Mo Ran, Nangong Si … you evil people, just you wait! You’ll all get your retribution. Just wait for death! ”
