Chapter 598 – Scared Like a Shivering Dog
Mount Hua Immortal Sect.
It was a mess in the outer sect.
There were corpses everywhere and they all belonged to the outer sect disciples of Mount Hua Immortal Sect.
In a short one month period…
The ten great immortal sects surrounded them and Mount Hua Immortal Sect was facing imminent annihilation.
They were surrounded so tightly that not even a drop of water couldn’t leak out.
The path leading to the inner sect was completely surrounded by the disciples of the ten great immortal sects.
Mount Hua Immortal Sect’s main hall.
Imperial God Immortal Sect’s Martial Hall, Hall Master Lei Zhen’s eyes were filled with anger. He was staring at Venerable Yun Ji like he was standing from high above before saying coldly: “Yun Ji, it was your Mount Hua Immortal Sect’s disciple who disrupted the rules. Let’s not mention about him killing the disciples from our ten great immortal sects, just the fact that he destroyed Heaven’s Boundary is enough to annihilate his entire clan. I really don’t understand why you would have accepted such a devil in the beginning, humph~!”
Starsea Immortal Sect Martial Hall’s Hall Master, Tian Lun had a face full of disdain. “Back then, that kid killed my Starsea Envoy. If it weren’t for us giving face to the young phoenix Li Xue’er, did you think a mere Mount Hua Elder could have calmed our anger? Now he actually dared to openly antagonize my Starsea Immortal Sect, killing over a dozen talented disciples of my Starsea Immortal Sect. We definitely have to find that kid Luo Tian to settle these accounts. But since he’s not here, you, Venerable Yun Ji, as Mount Hua Immortal Sect’s Sect Leader needs to give us an explanation today. If you don’t, don’t blame us brothers for not keeping our old friendship in mind. Not to mention a Sect Leader of Mount Hua Immortal Sect, we would say the same thing even if your Prime Elder was here.”
Imperial God and Starsea Immortal Sect, those two biggest immortal sects stepped forward so the other eight leaders of the ten great immortal sects also jumped out to criticize them.
“Yun Ji, if you don’t give us a good explanation today, then it’s about time for your Mount Hua Immortal Sect to be destroyed.”
“That’s right, you need to give us a good explanation.”
“Killing our immortal sect disciples and destroying Heaven’s Boundary is an unforgivable crime. Not to mention you being Venerable Jun Yi, even if your old ancestor of Mount Hua was here, you guys still have to hand that kid over today. He cannot be left alive! For him to continue living is considered a great insult to our ten great immortal sects.”
Each person made a comment.
Each comment was filled with an aura of oppression and didn’t give Venerable Yun Ji any face.
Based on seniority…
These people speaking should be addressing Venerable Yun Ji as senior brother, but now they had little to no respect.
They all had expressions like they were high above him and spoke to him in contempt.
They didn’t give Venerable Yun Ji any face at all!
Venerable Yun Ji’s expression turned pale while he secretly clenched his fists underneath his sleeves. He then viciously said to himself: “Luo Tian, even if you manage to hide at the ends of the world, I will still be able to drag you out from there. I will let you experience the world’s most painful torture!”
This was his promise!
His face had an ingratiating smile on it before saying: “All my fellow Hall Masters and Elders, this matter is due to my inability to teach my disciples well. As long as that dog thing Luo Tian comes back, I will immediately twist his head off and offer it to you all with both hands.”
Venerable Hun Yuan also had an ingratiating look on his face as he said: “That dog thing is indeed a scourge. Our Mount Hua Immortal Sect is also a victim in this. I hope that my fellow Hall Masters and Elders will forgive us. As long as he comes back… no, I will immediately send people out to capture Luo Tian and give everyone here a good explanation.”
At this time…
None of the inner sect Elders had spoken up on behalf of Luo Tian.
They were all like dogs wagging their tails and begging for mercy.
Han Hua’s face was swollen and filled with bruises. Traces of blood clotting was seen on her chest while her body was being restricted by a type of rope that was especially strengthened. It wasn’t just her but Yun Ling, Yun Yi, and Zhao Chen were all tied up tightly. There was also Xu Shan who was lying on the ground covered in blood. His face was pale white and his breathing was faint like silk threads. It looked like he was about to die at any given moment.
Han Hua looked up and said: “Sect Leader, Luo Tian didn’t do anything wrong. It was the ten great immortal sects who bullied us first by killing our Mount Hua Immortal Sect disciples. Luo Tian was only returning the same means that they had used against us. Those so-called talented disciples of the ten great immortal sects were beaten to a pulp by Luo Tian alone. This world has always respected the strong. One should recognize those that are stronger than them yet those guys refused to acknowledge it even when they weren’t his opponent. Luo Tian wasn’t wrong so there’s no need to give them any explanations.”
“Who do you think you are? Is this a place where you have the right to speak?!”
Several people scolded her.
Venerable Hun Yuan’s figure flashed and viciously slapped Han Hua. And towards her chest wound that had just scabbed over, he thrust his finger into it before lecturing: “Mount Hua Immortal Sect’s main hall is not a place for a cheap slut like you to speak. All of you will die in just a short while later.”
Severe pain struck her body.
Han Hua gasped for breath but didn’t yell out in pain. Her gaze was steady as she shouted once more: “We did nothing wrong! Luo Tian didn’t do anything wrong either! Why do we need to give them an explanation?! We are all orthodox immortal sect members so why do we need to make any amends to them?! Who do they think they are?!”
Venerable Hun Yuan gave another vicious slap, “You’re courting death!”
Zhao Chen took a step forward and loudly said: “We didn’t do anything wrong! Boss Luo didn’t do anything wrong either! Grand Elder, Sect Leader; why do we need to give them an explanation?!”
Yun Ling and Yun Yi both walked forward and loudly said: “We don’t need to give them any explanations! What big brother Luo Tian did wasn’t wrong!”
“You guys are all rebelling! It looks like if I don’t teach you guys a lesson today, you won’t remember who I am!” Venerable Hun Yuan’s eyes were filled with rage. He then released his early Profound Emperor realm powers and gave each one of them a slap.
“Bang~, bang~, bang~, bang~!”
The four of them were smashed sprawling to the ground.
Their faces were red and swollen and black-colored blood kept spraying out of their mouths.
Before that, they hadn’t suffered any injuries when they were fighting bloody battles with the disciples of the ten great immortal sects. But now they were beaten up by an inner sect Elder. They didn’t die to the outside enemies and were going to die at the hands of their own people? How ridiculous was that?
Xu Shan started laughing loudly in pain. He struggled to get back onto his feet before saying: “What Luo Tian said was correct – Mount Hua Immortal Sect is already rotten to the bones. I was originally blaming myself but from the looks of it, I didn’t do anything wrong.”
“Hun Yuan, are you only powerful when bullying our own people? You’re an expert at the Profound Emperor realm so can you at least bring out the imposing manner of a Profound Emperor ranker? Are you any weaker than those Hall Masters and Elders here? Why are you so afraid of them? And afraid to the point of acting like a dog?”
“And there’s you!”
“Venerable Yun Ji, as a dignified Sect Leader of Mount Hua Immortal Sect, you didn’t do anything! When we were surrounded by the ten great immortal sects, you only managed to show up now? When nearly all our outer sect disciples were killed, where were you? What qualifications does a person like you have to continue being our leader?”
“Ten great immortal sects?”
“Hahaha… just those four words and you’re scared to this point? A person like you is not qualified to be the Sect Leader of Mount Hua Immortal Sect. This place is truly rotten to the core, rotten to the point that it can’t get any worse. What Luo Tian said was correct – this kind of immortal sect should just be destroyed.”
As his voice faded…
Rage was clearly visible on Venerable Yun Ji’s face. His figure was like a ghost as his palm strike landed on Xu Shan’s chest. “It’s not your turn to judge my mistakes! Who the hell do you think you are? Go to hell for me!”
