Chapter 438 – Captured On Arrival
Luo Tian smiled.
A very brilliant looking smile.
Looking at Venerable Hun Yuan, he said: “Grand Elder; I’m just going out to find materials to refine inner cores for you, so why would I be running away? You might run away but I will definitely not run so you can be rest assured.”
What a joke!
This place has so many bosses he hasn’t killed yet so why would Luo Tian run?
Why would he run if the ancient battlefield hasn’t even been opened yet?
This was an impossible matter.
Luo Tian would absolutely not leave Mount Hua Immortal Sect until he explodes them all.
Venerable Hun Yuan narrowed his eyes in a smile before saying: “That’s good then. Luo Tian, you should be very clear on my strength. Everything you love is in the control of my hands. Even if you do run, I can still find you in any corner of our Tianxuan Continent. Make sure you behave sensibly.”
“Grand Elder, you are worrying over nothing.” Luo Tian chuckled loudly into the air. His expression didn’t show any changes but killing intent was surging inside his heart. “Motherf*cker, trying to threaten this daddy huh? You just wait for me.”
Luo Tian said: “I remember when I first arrived at Mount Hua Immortal Sect; you were trying all sorts of methods to kick me off the mountain. Now you’ve become so afraid of me leaving. Grand Elder, did you fall in love with me? Hahaha…”
Venerable Hun Yuan’s gaze turned fierce while his mouth formed a sneer. He then looked at Xu Shan and asked: “Where is Luo Tian going for his mission?”
Xu Shan replied: “Dark North Sea.”
Venerable Hun Yuan was faintly stunned by this. His gaze landed on Luo Tian again and said: “You are running quite far away.”
Luo Tian replied with a smile: “There’s nothing I can do. Who made inner cores so hard to refine? How about you go get the immortal herbs to refine inner cores in place of me? I could just obediently wait here since you’re so afraid of me running away.”
What a joke! Those things were incomparably valuable!
How can the herbs to refine inner cores not be valuable?
Luo Tian’s words made Venerable Hun Yuan’s gaze turn gloomy. He then said: “I hope you can come back quickly. If you don’t return within three months… heh heh, then he is going to die. Elder Xu, do you think releasing a criminal of Mount Hua Immortal Sect can be punishable by death?”
Xu Shan’s gaze became stern while his brows furrowed. He then nodded and said: “If Luo Tian doesn’t come back within three months, I am willing to be punished.”
“Luo Tian, you heard that, right?”
“He will have to die if you don’t come back, and it’s not just him. All the members of your Team Skyfire will die as well. There are also your friends in Heavenly Sword City, and even the entire Great Tang Dynasty will disappear.” Venerable Hun Yuan said with a playful smile.
He could indeed accomplish this with his abilities.
When Mount Hua Immortal Sect was compared to the other immortal sects, they may not be considered much. But when compared to the Great Tang Dynasty, they were a behemoth of an existence and could easily destroy the dynasty.
Luo Tian’s gaze tightened and he clenched his fists beneath his sleeves. His mouth finally
curved up into a cold smile and said: “Don’t worry, I will be coming back.”
Right after that…
Luo Tian took a step onto the teleportation array.
Xu Shan stepped forward and said: “Luo Tian, you need to remember the mission’s time limit is three months. This teleportation array will send you directly to Dark North City. You only have one chance to use it to come back within the three months.”
Luo Tian nodded and replied: “I will remember it.”
There shouldn’t be too much of a difference with this teleportation array and the games he played in his previous life.
Venerable Hun Yuan turned around to look at Luo Tian standing on the teleportation array. Luo Tian also stared back at him.
The array was then activated!
A beam of light surged into the sky and Luo Tian felt like he was traveling in a spatial-temporal tunnel. In the blink of an eye, he had already arrived at another location.
This was a feeling that one couldn’t experience when playing video games.
He didn’t expect this kind of feeling was rather cool.
The light beam exploded, and Luo Tian appeared in the teleportation array of Dark North City.
Before Luo Tian was able to react…
Over a hundred people suddenly charged over and surrounded him.
Every one of them was staring at him with hostility.
Their long spears were pointing at Luo Tian’s throat, and it was only half a centimeter away before it would poke into his skin.
Luo Tian’s gaze turned to shock before he smiled foolishly. He then said: “We’re all on the same side, the same side. There’s no need to be so anxious. I’m just passing by to buy soy sauce so there’s no need to treat me like this, right?”
“Commander, he doesn’t look like someone from the Ghost Merman Sect.”
“It doesn’t seem like it from the clothes he’s wearing.”
“Moreover, the people from the Ghost Merman Sect wouldn’t only teleport a single person over.”
“Maybe he’s a scout?”
“That’s possible. Commander, we can’t take the chances. The people of the Ghost Merman Sect are extremely cunning and this person is highly likely a spy. We cannot allow him to leave here alive. We suffered huge losses last time so this time, we cannot make the same mistake.”
A low voiced discussion took place somewhere in the crowd.
They were all wearing the same armor so they must be the guards of Dark North City.
They were all guarding the teleportation array. With so many people charging at him together, Luo Tian almost pissed his pants from fright. But from the start of their conversation, Luo Tian felt some relief because they didn’t seem to be here for him.
But as they continued talking, Luo Tian’s heart skipped a beat.
Luo Tian chuckled and said: “I am a disciple of Mount Hua Immortal Sect. I came to Dark North City to complete a mission.”
“Mount Hua Immortal Sect?”
A man in black armor with bushy eyebrows and large eyes then said: “Doing a mission? What kind of mission are you doing? Mount Hua Immortal Sect hasn’t sent anyone to Dark North City for several decades. And the clothes you’re wearing aren’t the uniform of Mount Hua Immortal Sect disciples. It’s really hard to believe your words.”
Luo Tian secretly cursed.
He had been suffering from unequal treatment at Mount Hua from the beginning. Not to mention uniform, he wasn’t even given a single bite of food from them.
Luo Tian’s eyeballs started spinning before he said: “Commander, our Grand Elder Venerable Hun Yuan was observing the astrological stars at night and found that Dark North City was in danger, that’s why he sent me here to save you guys. My mission is exactly to save Dark North City. Don’t worry; you guys will be safe now that I’m here.”
“Just you alone?” The Commander asked while staring at Luo Tian.
Luo Tian replied: “That’s right. Just I alone am enough.”
The Commander’s gaze didn’t show any shock as he observed Luo Tian seriously. After several seconds, he suddenly shouted: “Someone come arrest him!”
“What’s going on?”
“I’m here to save you guys.”
Before Luo Tian could continue speaking, a dozen or so long spears had already locked onto his body not allowing him to move.
One must mention…
The cultivation level of these guards was very strong. Every one of them was at the Profound Ancestor realm or higher, and each of them possessed a trace of immortal force.
Luo Tian couldn’t help but be surprised by this point.
When he was being detained, Luo Tian didn’t resist.
The name above these guards wasn’t in red, and their Commander didn’t give off any golden glow. This meant the guards here weren’t considered monsters and wouldn’t deliberately harm him.
The Commander then said: “Have him brought to the dungeon first.”
Luo Tian loudly shouted: “Commander! I’m really a disciple of Mount Hua Immortal Sect. I’m really here to save you all!”
The Commander’s gaze turned gloomy before shouting: “Your dantian is clearly crippled! Would an immortal sect even accept a martial artist with a crippled dantian? You should at least make up a better lie than this. I’m already treating you quite well by not immediately killing you on the spot.”
“Throw him into the dungeon and keep an eye on him. Do not make any mistakes.”
Luo Tian was then brought away.
A guard walked over and whispered: “Commander; there’s a bunch of old devils imprisoned in the dungeon. Would that kid be…?”
