After hearing what Wang Lin sent over, Xiao Yan maintained his expression. He unleashed a horrifying aura around his body, which was more terrifying than how it was when he battled the Grand Moon Swordmaster. In his eyes, a chilly radiance shone.
Although he didn’t unleash his powers, the air around him that had already cooled down after the battle started to warm up again.
While Wu Yunliang and the others were fearful, they were also confused at the same time. They were unsure what riled Xiao Yan so much.
At the bottom of the Ethereal Mountain Sect, Chu Yang lifted up his head to look at Xiao Yan. He had a premonition.
From what he knew, although Xiao Yan was hot-tempered, he was already doing much better in calming himself down over these years. There were not many things that could have sparked such an intense reaction from him.
Xiao Yan took in a deep breath and he tried to retract the aura around him. Everything in the Heavens and Earth regained its calmness. It was as if what had happened earlier was just an illusion, which left Wu Yunliang and the others more confused.
Li Yuanfang looked at Xiao Yan. Xiao Yan was silent for a while before he communicated with Li Yuanfang using his powers.
Although his expression did not change, Li Yuanfang’s breathing stopped for a second. Both he and Xiao Yan were speechless as they looked at each other.
Li Yuanfang looked over at Wu Yunliang with a calm look on his face, “Elder Wu, we just received some news from the sect and we have to rush back now. I hope that you can hurry your guys up.”
Wu Yunliang’s heart sank, but he knew that their relationship with the Mount Shu was in tatters. Regardless what happened to the Celestial Sect of Wonders, there was only one path that they could take from now on.
“No problem. It’s our fault for delaying all of you.” Wu Yunliang nodded his head and supervised his disciples personally.
After everyone in the Ethereal Mountain Sect had prepared finished, the Virtuous Zen Master dragged all of them up with his powers. Following that, he left with Xiao Yan, Li Yuanfang and the rest. They rushed towards the opening of the Celestial Wonders World at the north foot of Mount Kunlun.
Over there, Lin Feng had set up a formation that led to the Cloud Mirror City. This formation could greatly reduce their travelling time.
And at the same time, a particular news from the Barren Expanses leaked into the Divine Lands through many channels. This news quickly spread in the Divine Lands.
The news was that Zhou Yuncong was abducted by the Golden Cicada Master and was taken to the Barren Expanses.
However, in light of this, no one seemed to notice Lin Feng retaliating. Not only did he not go and find the Golden Cicada Master, he did not even reveal himself.
As this news spread, everyone could confirm something.
Something major must have happened to Lin Feng and the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
Lin Feng was missing. He could be dead, retreating or lost in a certain plane of space or a Middle World.
Regardless of the reason, one thing was for sure. Lin Feng was not in the Greater World!
Otherwise, even if he was not on Mount Yujing, he would have reacted in light of such terrible news.
Ever since Mount Yujing appeared, there were questions all over everyone’s head. But at this point, these questions had been answered.
What followed was that a turmoil had begun in the Divine Lands.
And right now, in the Barren Expanses, there was great unrest too.
In the extreme east of the Barren Lands, inside a quiet valley, there was a dense layer of fog surrounding the entire valley. But very few knew what was hidden underneath that layer of fog.
If one entered this valley, he would discover that it was extremely deep. As the Earth cracked open, a hole was created, but this hole’s depth was unknown.
Inside this valley right now, amidst the darkness, purple radiance flashed suddenly.
Two spots of purplish light started to rise. As the fog became thinner and thinner, it was clear that the two spots of purplish light were actually the eyes of someone.
The figure of this person was unclear, resembling the chaos of a primitive universe. The eyes shot out a bright purplish light and a frightening aura was exuded from her gaze. This shook the Heavens.
She was the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, who went missing after obtaining part of the Hades Dark Mantra in the Cloud Forest World!
In the past, the Grand Celestial World was used to naming the top ten Demonic Saints who were the most active and notorious as the Ten Demonic Saints. The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage was publicly acknowledged as the greatest of them all, and was also recognized as the candidate with the highest hope of becoming the next Demonic Emperor.
But the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage was aware that her foundation was not strong enough as compared to countless older demons that had hidden themselves.
However, as she cultivated the Hades Dark Mantra and spent many years inside the deep valley, her powers had increased by another level. Regardless whether it was her cultivation realm or powers, they had increased greatly.
Right now, she was confident of fighting any demon in the Barren Expanses. Even for those Immemorial Demons that hid themselves, she still maintained the same confidence.
Right now, she had the credentials and qualities to become the next Demonic Emperor.
Behind the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the Sirius Grand Sage, Long Ye, Parasol Tree Fairy and many other demons rose up from the valley.
As he revealed his true form, the Sirius Grand Sage opened his eyes wide and roared in a low voice, “We can finally reveal ourselves again!”
Long Ye maintained she appearance – wearing a white robe and was bare-footed – as she stood behind the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage without speaking. The other demons said to the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage respectfully, “We are willing to help you conquer the world and hope that you will ascend the throne soon.”
“It’s still too early to say. I’m not like Lei Yuan (the Golden Roc Grand Sage). I still have to increase my confidence in all aspects.” The voice of the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage was as hoarse as usual. She laughed lightly, “Everything has to progress slowly and steadily. There are still many things that I have to do.”
Her eyes flashed with purple light, which seemed to transcend boundless void space, through the barriers of the two worlds, until it landed in the Divine Lands.
“The Hades Emperor was indeed exceptional. If I did not cultivate the Hades Dark Mantra all these years and saw what the Hades Emperor did, I wouldn’t know that the Realm beyond the Heavens of the Great Void Sect was actually the Spirit Sea. It was also because of him that it was sealed.”
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage shut her eyes, “A change occurred in the Hades Dark Mantra not long ago. I could subtly feel that it’s because of the traces that the Hades Emperor left in the Spirit Sea. As the Spirit Sea was re-opened, the Great Void Sect entered and removed all traces of the Hades Emperor. But the Spirit Sea suddenly sealed shut again.”
“From what the Golden Cicada Master said, Lin Feng is missing too. Mount Yujing appeared for no reason. And that happened at such a timing. I believe that Lin Feng is stuck in the Spirit Sea with the Great Void Sect cultivators.”
“The Sirius Grand Sage’s eyes flashed with blood, “Senior, are you saying…”
“We don’t know how strong the Great Void Sect is. Who knows how many of them are trapped in the Spirit Sea?” The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage shook her head, “Furthermore, even if Tai Yi, Zheng Yi, Qing Yi and Xuan Yi are not around, entering the Divine Lands blindly with the Supreme Heavenly Mirror still around is a risky move.”
“However, it’s a pity that with such a good opportunity, the demons is not unified. Otherwise, if both the demons and humans clash, we are likely to emerge victorious”
Long Ye smiled, “But this does not mean that we should not do anything.”
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage revealed a smile on her face, “That’s right. The Great Void Sect is vulnerable now. They are only prepapred for defending but not attacking, which is convenient for our plans.”
The Sirius Grand Sage laughed, “Right now, if we do anything, they can only watch us. If we don’t go over and wreak some havoc, they should be feel fortunate.”
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage said, “Leak the news. I believe there will be many who will be interested in removing the Great Void Sect, which has been an eyesore for 4000 years now.”
She laughed, “This is the time for me to collaborate with Lei Yuan.”
At the same time, at the extreme north of Barren Expanses, void space cracked open. It was a hidden opening to a Middle World. From the boundary passage, a huge Golden Roc flew out. The eyes of this Golden Roc flashed with an evil, golden light.
On its golden wings, a streak of purple radiance seemed to be flashing. A frightening vibration of demonic mana was exuded at this point.
This Golden Roc was the Golden Roc Grand Sage, Lei Yuan.
He retracted his wings and the claws of his legs stepped on void space, as if they were grabbing onto invisible branches. His cold eyes stared into the distance.
After a long while, a sigh rang in the Heavens and Earth, “It’s a pity, a pity! The Great Void Sect is very weak now, what a pity!”
“However, even if I can’t go to the Divine Lands, I can also remove the spies in the Barren Expanses that the Great Void Sect planted.” The Golden Roc Grand Sage flapped his wings before disappearing. Behind him in the boundary passage, the Qiong Qi Grand Sage, Heavenly Wheels Golden Roc and other demons were following him. They all flew into the distance.
Ever since the last War Between the Two Worlds, the Great Void Sect extended their reach into the Barren Expanses. Although they had not done anything major, they were breathing down the necks of the demons.
Even though the Great Void Sect was quiet, it was not easy for the demons to make a move.
Right now, the demons had the opportunity to remove the Great Void Sect. To the entire demon clan, this was a benefit to them.
As the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and Golden Roc Grand Sage leaked the news out, the entire Barren Expanses experienced an upheaval. Many of the powerful demons were also agitated.
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and the Golden Roc Grand Sage possessed the Hades Dark Mantra and the secrets of Hades, and were the targets of many powerful demons. After they leaked news out, they still hid themselves. But they acted at certain timings, according to the countless plans in their minds.
Long Ye followed the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and revealed a smile on his face, “The Great Void Sect will not retreat easily. In this case, we are restricting the powers of the Great Void Sect over here. In the Divine Lands, I believe a lot of interesting things should be happening now?”
Right now, in the Divine Lands, chaos had descended.
In the Netherworld Emperor’s World that was connected to the Void Battleground, Yin energy filled the place, as if it was the Netherworld.
Inside the pitch-black royal place, in front of a black dragon seat, the leader of the Hall of the Dead placed his hands behind his back. He stood there quietly.
Behind him, there were five other people waiting patiently.
Xu Anda smiled and asked, “Have they acted?”
