Chapter 811 – Zhao Yufei’s Suspicions
Around the edge of the ruined city, the geniuses and elites of all the forces watched the layer of silver light fly by. Some of the Eight Big Families – the Jiang, Dong, Shi, Cao, and Ji Families – were included in the pursuit, even though the Cao and Ji Families didn’t actually attack. Apart from them, there was also Grand Duke Yuan’s Palace as well as the members of the peak three-star superpower, the Nine Darkness Palace. Even the Thirteenth Prince of the Great Gan Imperials were involved.
Despite all those groups chasing them, the “Black Clothes, Purple Hair” duo had managed to escape.
“What is the background of that ‘Black Clothes, Purple Hair’ duo? How did they manage to offend so many forces at once?”
Some nearby spectating experts were stunned. After all, all those elites came from superpowers of the Great Gan Lord Dynasty.
“Ji Lan, Cao Yun… why didn’t the two of you stop them?” Jiang Chen questioned.
A moment ago, when Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng broke past the resistance of the Jiang Family, they passed by the ambush points of the Cao and Ji Families. If Ji Lan and Cao Yun – two Void God Realm Kings – managed to stall them for another breath or two, the pursuers would have caught up and surrounded them.
At this instant in time, everyone’s gazes landed on Ji Lan and Cao Yun. Sweat started to appear on their foreheads as they seemed to finally wake up.
“You can’t blame us for that,” Ji Lan said bitterly as she remembered the gaze of that purple-haired youth’s left eye.
“We were hit by that purple-haired youth’s mental energy technique…?” Cao Yun’s heart shook, and Ji Lan remained silent, as if in agreement.
At the last moment, they hesitated for a moment about whether to stop Zhao Feng or not because the enmity between them still wasn’t too big.
“Ridiculous! That purple-haired thief is only at the Small Origin Core Realm. How can his eye-bloodline affect a Void God Realm King?”
The experts didn’t believe him. His excuse wasn’t very convincing.
“That is reality.” Ji Lan’s face went cold as she started to talk in an unhappy tone, “My Purple Star Eyes was injured by the counterattack of his eye-bloodline. I’ve realized that the purple-haired youth is actually the one in charge.”
Hearing that, more suspicions arose.
“That purple-haired youth is only at the Small Origin Core Realm. You really think he would be the leader?”
“I don’t believe that two Kings could be affected by a thief at the Small Origin Core Realm,” the Thirteenth Prince snickered coldly.
Most of the people didn’t believe Ji Lan, while another portion half-believed her.
“Hmph, don’t blame me for not warning you when something bad happens to you.” Ji Lan was too disdainful to explain.
“What happened…? I didn’t even have the courage to attack him….” Cao Yun took a deep breath. He knew that he had been affected by Zhao Feng’s eye-bloodline, but he didn’t know the details very well because his memory was slightly blurry.
“It’s very simple.” Ji Lan let out a long breath and spoke with a sigh, “That Zhao Feng successfully used the flaws in our minds to control our emotions.”
What!? Cao Yun’s heart shook as he thought about it, and he realized that that was indeed what happened. They were extremely wary and cautious of Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng, and they were hesitating about whether to attack them or not. Furthermore, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng had severely injured Jiang Chen in an instant, shocking Cao Yun and Ji Lan. Apart from that, Zhao Feng’s eye-bloodline had already counterattacked and injured Ji Lan in the past.
The two weren’t very confident or courageous. There was quite an impression left in their hearts. Zhao Feng used the flaws in their minds to affect their emotions with that wicked smile. During the entire process, the two were wary and scared. They lacked the courage to attack.
Hence the current situation. The two could only watch as Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng escaped, unable to attack.
“We indeed missed our chance. If we were more decisive, we may have stalled those two,” Cao Yun couldn’t help but say regretfully.
Of course, the two became even warier of Zhao Feng now. They felt that he was rather terrifying.
A strong surge of Magnificent Power from an expert of the Demonic Dao descended on this area.
“What’s going on? How did those two thieves escape?” Jiu Wuji flew over.
At this moment, the fight for the important treasures around the golden bones had finished. Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng were the biggest winners – Jiu Wuji and company had been toyed with.
“This is what happened…” Jiang Chen summarized what happened.
After knowing that the “Black Clothes, Purple Hair” duo had escaped unharmed, Jiu Wuji was filled with anger.
“Those two thieves managed to escape with this many of you?” Jiu Wuji tried to suppress the anger and rage in his heart.
It was already enough that he had been defeated by Zhao Yufei from the Duanmu Family, but at the end of the day, her Spiritual Race bloodline was too strong. However, two unknown brats came out of nowhere and created chaos for the Nine Darkness Palace by stealing a bunch of their resources. Jiu Wuji was unable to suppress this anger.
“The two thieves had unique abilities and shocking speed. We need to think of a plan to deal with them,” an old, calm voice sounded.
The owner of the voice was the wrinkled elder next to the Thirteenth Prince. In terms of strength, he wasn’t much weaker than Jiu Wuji, but Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng had already escaped by the time he arrived.
Within a few moments, the leaders of all the forces Zhao Feng had stolen from had gathered together.
“Very good. Now that everyone’s here, we should discuss how to pursue and kill those two thieves.”
A faint smile appeared on Jiu Wuji’s and the wrinkled elder’s faces as they looked at each other.
In reality, the reason why these elites wanted to pursue and kill the “Black Clothes, Purple Hair” duo was not just because of the treasures they had obtained, it was also due to the fact that everyone here had lost face.
One had to know that these elites came from the lord dynasty’s superpowers, and the Thirteenth Prince was an imperial. If news of this incident spread, then where would the face of the imperials, the big families, and the peak three-star forces go?
However, the Cao and Ji Families didn’t participate because the enmity between them and Zhao Feng wasn’t that big. The Duanmu Family didn’t participate either.
The Duanmu Family was also one of the biggest winners, so it wasn’t a surprise that they didn’t participate in chasing after the “Black Clothes, Purple Hair” duo. However, those that paid attention would realize that the duo hadn’t attacked the Duanmu Family.
Was it because they were scared of Zhao Yufei? Some people didn’t believe that the thieves, whose courage was as high as the sky, would be scared of anything. Ji Lan was one of them.
Two days later, after the ruined city was fully uncovered, all the forces left.
That’s weird. Those people seem to have some common goal…? Zhao Yufei thought.
Jiu Wuji, the Thirteenth Prince, and company had all left together, and no one knew what they were planning.
“Yufei, we’ve received news that Jiu Wuji and company have gathered the experts of several forces to chase after those two thieves.” The green-robed elder flew over.
“Chasing after them?” A hint of worry appeared on Zhao Yufei’s face.
“Yufei, are you worried about your friend’s safety? According to news from Ji Lan, the strength of the black-clothed youth is extremely great, and the ability of that purple-haired youth is even more unique. He has a Soul eye-bloodline that even defeated Ji Lan and Cao Yun….” the green-robed elder continued.
Hearing that, Zhao Yufei’s expression changed slightly as a light flashed through her eyes.
“Purple hair… Soul-based eye-bloodline? Is all of this just a coincidence?” Zhao Yufei was lost in deep thought and became more suspicious. However, the age, appearance, and techniques of that purple-haired youth were very different from the one in her memories.
Furthermore, he wasn’t the only person with purple hair and a Soul eye-bloodline. For example, the Ji Family; most of their eye-bloodlines were Soul-based, and they had purple hair.
“Brother Feng… could it be that you have entered the Divine Illusion Dimension as well?” A dreamy expectation appeared in Zhao Yufei’s eyes. If Nan Gongsheng could enter, why couldn’t Zhao Feng?
“Let’s go,” Zhao Yufei decided.
“Yufei, what are you planning…?” the green-robed elder asked.
“I need to find Nan Gongsheng… and ask him something,” Zhao Yufei said decisively, and no one was left in the ruined city.
Amidst a valley in the Divine Illusion Dimension:
A layer of silver light landed amongst a field of trees.
The youth in black let out a long breath as excitement flashed through his tired eyes. “We ran for quite a while, and you were extremely cautious. The rewards this time are extremely plentiful….”
Nan Gongsheng and Zhao Feng both had smiles on their face. They had gone crazy and plundered from many forces in the chaotic battle.
They immediately cleared out an area in the depths of the forest, then started to organize their rewards.
Nan Gongsheng’s main reward was the substandard God Crystals. He had obtained a couple dozen alone, and they had all been put into his spatial dimension to feed the Evil God Crystal.
Zhao Feng felt that Nan Gongsheng’s spatial domain had been strengthened by quite a bit in the past few days, and the quality and element of his True Yuan had changed. Nan Gongsheng’s power kept on increasing, and a slightly wicked aura radiated from him, but luckily, with the power of the Mind Calming Pearl, only a portion of his strength had been affected. His mind and Intent hadn’t been obviously affected.
Amidst the forest, Zhao Feng cleared out his spoils of war. Although he didn’t obtain many God Crystals, he still got a few. However, the golden bones he had obtained contained a strong surge of the laws of Metal.
When Zhao Feng started cultivating the Metal of Wind Lightning, these golden bones would be of great use.
“Hmm?” Zhao Feng found several items on the golden bones.
On the waist was a golden-gray belt that wasn’t very eye-catching. On its skull was a scarlet-golden nose ring, and the golden bones also had a pair of green leather shoes on its feet that were covered in ancient, detailed carvings.
