War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens - Chapter 3769 - It’s All Because of Duan Ling Tian
Chapter 3769 It’s All Because of Duan Ling Tian
Upon hearing Xue Hai Chuan’s words, Supreme Elder Lei’s expression changed greatly. “Why didn’t I think of that?”
Supreme Elder Wu said with a regretful expression, “No wonder there are so many people killing the members of our Hidden Fog Sect. Even with the relatives of those who were killed in Linghu City, there shouldn’t be so many people attacking our members. It seems like the 10,000 Devils Sect has been taking advantage of the situation…”
“Sect leader, you can’t afford to be indecisive anymore. You have to make a decision soon!” Supreme Elder Yun said solemnly to Qian Yun.
Although the few supreme elders of the Hidden Fog Sect had high status and were stronger, Qian Yin was still the Sect Leader of the Hidden Fog Sect, after all.
A sour expression could be seen on Qian Yin’s face at this moment. As the sect leader, he had failed the Hidden Fog Sect. He was too anxious and overwhelmed by the matter that he failed to consider things from all angles. After listening to Xue Hai Chuan’s reminded, he felt truly incompetent as the Sect Leader of the Hidden Fog Sect.
“I’ll speak to a few core elders who are responsible for the sect’s external affairs and tell them to issue a statement. I’ll also instruct them to expel everyone who’s related to Supreme Elder Feng from the sect,” Qian Yin said decisively without consulting the three supreme elders.
Previously, Supreme Elder Lei had objected to this matter. However, at this time, he no longer dared to stop Qian Yin. He only remained silent with a solemn expression on his face.
“Since I’ll have to wait for my brother to come out, over the next period of time, I’ll follow the members out of the Hidden Fog Sect to protect them. If I see any members of the 10,000 Devils Sect, I’ll capture them and demand an explanation from the 10,000 Devils Sect,” Xue Hai Chuan said.
Upon hearing these words, the eyes of Qian Yin and the three supreme elders lit up. After all, Xue Hai Chuan was a White Dragon Elder of the Flying Dragon Sect. His presence alone in the 10,000 Devils Sect outweighed the combined presence of all of them.
When the Hidden Fog Sect announced they would be expelling those with ties to Supreme Elder Feng, its members were shocked. Although they had been hoping for this for a while now, they still felt sad upon hearing the announcement and seeing their fellow members being expelled.
“Supreme Elder Feng really committed a grave sin. Even if Shangguan Xiong Feng was his grandson, there was no need to drag the sect down just to avenge his grandson, right?”
“That’s right. After all, he had other children and grandchildren as well. I really don’t know what was going through his mind. Now, all his legitimate descendants are dragged down because of his illegitimate grandson.”
“Whether it’s his descendants or the members of the Hidden Fog Sect, his reputation has been destroyed, and his infamy won’t be so easily forgotten…”
After those with ties to Supreme Elder Feng were expelled from the Hidden Fog Sect, the Hidden Fog Sect announced again that Supreme Elder Feng had acted on his own without permission from the sect. Now that those with ties to him had been expelled, the Hidden Fog Sect no longer had any ties to Supreme Elder Feng.
When the news spread, everyone was naturally shocked by the Hidden Fog Sect’s decisiveness.
For a while after that, the relatives of those who died also shifted their anger from the Hidden Fog Sect to the descendants and disciples of Supreme Elder Feng. Many of them were killed now that they were without the protection of the Hidden Fog Sect. Those who survived were forced to change their names and identities. They were filled with hatred for Supreme Elder Feng. After all, if it were not for him, they would not have fallen into such a state.
With this, fewer and fewer people targeted the people of the Hidden Fog Sect. After all, their anger was mostly directed at Supreme Elder Feng. Previously, since the Hidden Fog Sect did not make their stance clear, they could only vent their anger at the Hidden Fog Sect. With the Hidden Fog Sect’s actions and announcement, they longer had any reason to target the Hidden Fog Sect. None of them were worried that the Hidden Fog Sect was lying. After all, this kind of thing would spread out in the end. Moreover, they had friends or relatives in the Hidden Fog Sect as well.
Just as Xue Hai Chuan had said, the 10,000 Devils Sect indeed took advantage of the situation and killed many members of the Hidden Fog Sect. Moreover, the people they sent out were inner elders and inner deacons. Even the weakest among them were intermediate Kings of Gods.
Apart from that, they usually acted in groups of three to ensure their safety. After all, if their identities were exposed, the Hidden Fog Sect would definitely retaliate. Since they were fishing in troubled water, it was imperative that their identities remained a secret.
With the Hidden Fog Sect’s announcement, many of those who were sent out were at a loss.
“I can’t believe the Hidden Fog Sect finally did this! Should we continue to attack their members?”
“Perhaps, we should send a message back to the sect and ask for further instruction?”
Voice Transmissions were sent back to the 10,000 Devils Sect one after another from around the Hidden Fog Sect’s estate.
It did not take long before Lan Qing, the Sect Leader of the 10,000 Devils Sect, found out about what had happened. As the Sect Leader of the 10,000 Devils Sect, he was destined to be enemies with Qian Yin who was the Sect Leader of the Hidden Fog Sect.
“When did Qian Yin become so decisive?” Lan Qing knew Qian Yin very well so he was rather surprised by Qian Yin’s decisiveness this time.
An inner elder of the 10,000 Devils Sect, who had just returned from the Hidden Fog Sect, said, “Perhaps, too many members of the Hidden Fog Sect had died so he was forced to make such a decision. After all, we’re not the only ones killing members of the Hidden Fog Sect.”
“You have a point,” Lan Qing said with a nod, “Very well, tell the groups with inner deacons to withdraw. Let the groups of inner elders patrol the area for another three months before they return. I’m sure many Hidden Fog Sect’s disciples and elders who were too afraid to go out in the past would swarm out of the sect after this…”
Those who were ordered to stay for another three months were rather glad. An inner deacon said to an inner elder upon receiving the orders, “Elder Wang, fortunately, I have you in the group. Otherwise, I’d have to return to the 10,000 Devils Sect. We have three months. I’m sure not many people will leave the Hidden Fog Sect during the first month. However, they’ll definitely come out in throngs in the following months. I’m sure all of them are bored of staying in the sect.”
“That’s right. So we’ll use the next month to rest while we lull them into a false sense of security. We’ll start killing them during the second and third months. I’ll contact the other groups and tell them not to attack during the first month.”
For this reason, Xue Hai Chuan, who had returned from the Flying Dragon Sect, did not encounter anyone from the 10,000 Devils Sect when he followed the members of the Hidden Fog Sect out during the first month.
When Xue Hai Chuan thought about how his brother, Xue Hai Shan, would be released from the Heavenly Stairs in half a month, he was overjoyed. While he waited, he continued to protect the members of the Hidden Fog Sect.
After a month. Xue Hai Chuan was following two members of the Hidden Fog Sect at this moment. All of a sudden, his expression changed slightly. In the next moment, an old man and two middle-aged men appeared, blocking the path of the two members of the Hidden Fog Sect.
“They’re disciples of the Hidden Fog Sect! Go!” the old man said to the two middle-aged men standing behind him.
With this, the two middle-aged men, who were intermediate Kings of Gods, did not give a chance for the two members of the Hidden Fog Sect to react. Their Divine Energies swept toward the duo, causing them to be unable to mobilize their Divine Energies. Just as their attacks were about to land…
A wall made of Divine Energy appeared in front of the two members of the Hidden Fog Sect, blocking the two intermediate Kings of Gods’ attacks. Following that, a terrifying Divine Energy swept down from above. Following that, the trio from the 10,000 Devils Sect watched as a white-clad young man appeared. When the two members of the Hidden Fog Sect, who had just escaped death, saw the white-clad young man, they called out respectfully, “Elder Xue!”
Although the two members of the Hidden Fog Sect knew they were protected, they could not help but break out in cold sweat when they were attacked earlier.
“Xue Hai Chuan?!”
Upon hearing the white-clad young man’s name, the expressions of the trio from the 10,000 Devils Sect changed drastically. Naturally, they knew Xue Hai Chuan was the genius cultivator from the Hidden Fog Sect 10,000 years ago. After entering the Flying Dragon Sect, he had quickly risen in ranks and became one of the three youngest White Dragon Elders of the Flying Dragon Sect. It was said that he was now an intermediate Lord of Gods.
The faces of the trio from the 10,000 Devils Sect turned pale immediately. Nonetheless, they did not bother to escape. After all, they knew it would be futile. Faced with an intermediate Lord of Gods, even the most outstanding advanced Kings of Gods did not stand a chance, let alone the three of them who were just ordinary intermediate and advanced Kings of Gods.
When Xue Hai Chuan saw the identity tokens on the trio’s waists, he said softly, “An inner elder and two inner deacons from the 10,000 Devils Sect?”
Upon hearing these words, the trio’s expressions changed again. They did not bother to hide their identity tokens previously because they were confident about killing the members of the Hidden Fog Sect. As the saying went, ‘A dead man tells no tales’. After all, they did not expect to meet Xue Hai Chuan. Xue Hai Chuan looked at the inner elder of the 10,000 Devils Sect and asked disdainfully, “Did Lan Qing send you out to take advantage of the situation and kill the members of the Hidden Fog Sect? It seems like he’s having a good time..”
The old man’s expression changed a few times before he finally mustered up the courage and said, “Elder Xue, we attacked these two members of the Hidden Fog Sect out of our own will. It has nothing to do with our sect leader. We’re doing this because of Duan Ling Tian! Since Duan Ling Tian is in the Linghu clan, we can’t kill him. Hence, we can only kill his former sect members to vent our anger!”
