Chapter 724 – Not Giving A Path To Live
“Sect Leader, we’re short of people!”
“We don’t have enough!”
“If we can’t gather ten people, we won’t be able to participate in the competition!” said Han Hua anxiously.
This was one of the early rules of the immortal sect disciple competition.
Each immortal sect needed to send out at least ten disciples to participate.
Mount Hua Immortal Sect had a total of thirteen people. Two of them counted as one, and two couldn’t participate, so there were only ten people left. The ten actually included Han Hua, the team leader whose cultivation hadn’t even reached the Profound Saint realm. If she participated in the competition, there would only be one outcome for her – death!
This meant Mount Hua Immortal Sect only had nine people who could fight.
The white-clothed scholar, Tong Yan, said angrily: “If we had known this was going to happen, we should’ve brought all those gambling addicts here. Compete? Compete your ass! We will directly sweep clean all of those ten great immortal sect dogs and cats so that it wouldn’t be so annoying now!”
The wretched man is known as Wei Mo, (Dimension Devil) said with a smile: “What kind of dog fart ten great immortal sects? They don’t even have the style of an immortal sect from the past! I really want to see if those old monsters who’ve ascended to the Ancient World would vomit blood or not if they saw what the current ten great immortal sects looked like right now. What kind of crappy foul atmosphere have they created?”
Those two old devils spoke out without restraint.
They didn’t put the ten great immortal sects in their eyes.
The current ten great immortal sects couldn’t be compared to the ones from their time!
Back then, the ten great immortal sects were truly the image of an immortal sect. Under the lead of Mount Hua’s progenitor, they were the most mighty and domineering force throughout the land.
Now… one can only laugh at their current state.
Luo Tian understood they were missing people.
He never expected that before the competition even started, they would use so many rules to target him. Flames were raging inside Luo Tian right now. He didn’t show anything on his face but inside his heart, he was probably angrier than anyone present.
But he couldn’t do anything about it.
He had to think on behalf of the entire Mount Hua Immortal Sect.
Based on his explosive temper, he would either leave with everyone or directly start killing on the spot. He didn’t give a shit about anything! There’s a saying that a person dying is no different than a single bird dying amongst many. But as long as they survive, their names will resound throughout the ages! Just slaughter them all until their blood runs like a river!
But he was responsible for trying to raise up Mount Hua Immortal Sect once more.
He promised Venerable Wu Nian, and the five element old ancestors. Even if he didn’t do it, he would try to accomplish it. He will definitely take note of all the injustices he has endured. Luo Tian believed that it wouldn’t be long until he would pay them all back for it.
At this time, Luo Tian looked at Han Hua.
Han Hua understood the look and said: “Sect Leader, I will participate.”
Luo Tian had a sour feeling in his heart but if they didn’t gather all ten people, they wouldn’t be able to participate in the competition. So, he could only have Han Hua participate as well. Luo Tian’s anger swelled up when he thought about her cultivation realm. “Senior sister, you are only here to make up the numbers. Don’t act seriously. As long as you get onto the stage, just admit defeat and don’t try to go against them.”
“There is only a single quota for the title of the strongest disciple.”
“Since we have so many people here, we will definitely grab that title. You only need to go up and pretend to go through the process. Remember not to do anything foolish.” Luo Tian was worried that Han Hua would suddenly do something impulsive.
Han Hua smiled and replied: “Don’t worry Sect Leader, I understand what I need to do.”
Seeing her smiling face, Luo Tian had a feeling an accident might happen. He started blaming himself: “I should’ve brought more people here! If anything bad happens to senior sister Han Hua, there’s no way I will be able to forgive myself!”
Luo Tian was missing one person originally so he brought two in case something happened.
He didn’t imagine that it wasn’t enough either!
It wasn’t that he didn’t want to bring more of them out from the Soul Refining Dungeon, it was because those old devils didn’t look very flattering. Wei Mo had a wretched look but he was considered one of the better looking ones already. The others looked eviler than the next. If people were to find out they were from the devil sect, then Mount Hua Immortal Sect would be even less qualified to participate.
They would be surrounded by the ten great immortal sects before the competition even started!
Colluding with the devil sect was a very big crime.
Luo Tian had no other options.
Yun Ling and Yun Yi said: “How about we split up? There will be enough people if we split up into two groups.”
Han Hua replied: “We can’t do that. If you two split up, your strength will be reduced by ninety percent. You two will definitely get first place in the two-man group competition. As long as we come first in a single category, the fortune of Mount Hua Immortal Sect will increase. Therefore you two cannot split up.”
Everything she did was for Mount Hua Immortal Sect.
She was the same as Luo Tian.
Since she has promised Han Hai and Elder Xu Shan, she will absolutely do her best to accomplish it.
Luo Tian was moved by this.
Yun Ling and Yun Yi looked at Han Hua and said together: “Senior sister, you have to be careful. You have to remember Sect Leader’s words and immediately forfeit when you get on the stage. It’s not shameful at all and no one will laugh at you. Whoever dares to laugh at you, I will be the first one to not let them off.”
Han Hua smiled and said: “Silly girl, I know what to do.”
Luo Tian secretly clenched his fists and said to himself: “Whoever dares to harm you, I will make them pay the price with their life. I promised senior brother Han Hai that I will protect you and that’s what I’ll do.”
Luo Tian was forced to the point of distress.
It was like he was standing on the edge of a cliff.
He kept suppressing the rage that was burning inside his heart.
In another area.
Daoist Lie Yang had a cold sneer as he said: “Luo Tian, it looks like you are planning on sending out that ugly woman with a scar on her face. Hahaha… that’s fine too. She shall be the first person to die in front of you!”
Immediately after, Daoist Lie Yan said to one of the disciples next to him: “Pass my order down – don’t give that person a chance to admit defeat. Her weakness is Han Hai and Zhang Kuang. Make sure they use those two people to infuriate her.”
He already read the information on Han Hua.
Mount Hua Immortal Sect was able to stabilize themselves after several upheavals because of this Han Hua. Daoist Lie Yang naturally had to understand and analyze this woman.
Lin Wushen laughed, “Hahaha, brother Lie Yan is truly brilliant! Hahaha…”
Daoist Lie Yang smiled smugly, “Victory is certain as long as you know yourself and the enemy. Luo Tian, I can’t wait to see that painful expression on your face. Hahaha…”
Lin Wushen then smiled smugly, “Watching your own brothers and women die in front of you is a very painful thing. But for us, that will become a pleasurable show.”
The two of them started laughing evilly.
“Dong~, dong~!” The sound of a bell being rung was heard.
The eighteen sect leaders from the immortal sects flew onto the stage to cast the names of the participants.
They also sent out some disciples to draw and settle the lots.
Luo Tian randomly drew nine single matches, one double match, and handed them to the moderator. That moderator was a bit scared to see him and no longer dared to show any expressions of disdain.
A short while later, the lot drawing results were here.
It wasn’t surprising that every one of Luo Tian’s selections was up against disciples from the ten great immortal sects.
It was beyond a doubt that the ballots were tampered with.
Luo Tian revealed a faint smile and said with disdain: “So they’re not giving us a path to live.”
