Chapter 403: The Star Alliance Is in Your Hands
Su Cha’s eyes flickered.
In fact, she was no stranger to these sects because, during her time in Yun Tang, martial arts did exist.
Otherwise, she would not have possessed heaven-defying martial arts.
At that time, martial arts sects and the Imperial Court were in charge of their own matters. Due to her change in circumstances, she had become someone who suppressed martial arts sects for decades until she suddenly returned to the modern world.
She had heard of the Heaven’s Secrets Sect before. Most of the people in the sect used the art of fortune-telling. Even the Imperial Court trusted the people of the Heaven’s Secrets Sect and often asked them to predict the luck of the Imperial Court.
At that time, Su Cha did not believe in such things. However, after experiencing two rebirths, she’d started to respect fate.
Hence, she believed Shi Wei’s words.
However, she did not expect the Heaven’s Secrets Sect to still exist.
Su Cha suddenly understood what the old man meant.
As Shi Wei spoke, tears welled up in his old eyes. “A few months ago, I predicted that a new leader of the Star Alliance was going to be assassinated. I saw the Star Alliance’s end.”
“Now, it’s not just us and the Martial Alliance. Those who had betrayed their factions have formed an alliance called the Killing Alliance. Their goal is to get rid of the Star Alliance and the Martial Alliance. Such a war has even spread to the surface world. If we fight to the death among you, the country will be affected. Now, not only are we facing the threat of the Killing Alliance, but the internal unity of the Star Alliance will also fall apart. If I can’t find a suitable candidate, I’m afraid those people will rebel.”
Shi Wei slammed the table angrily.
Jin Duan quickly held him up. Even though his face was tense, it was evident he could not bear to see this sight. “Master, don’t be angry over those people.”
“But I don’t understand why you are telling me this.”
The girl’s eyes were still calm. Even after she heard these things, she did not seem to be affected. “I am not from the Pugilistic World. Before this, I did not know about your existence.”
Shi Wei looked at Su Cha and smiled slowly. There was a hint of pity and helplessness in his smile. “I know what you mean, Miss Su. However, the Star Alliance now has no leader. The old leader of the Star Alliance has already passed away. I have not dared to announce this news yet. The next meeting will be held in two months. If I can’t find a suitable candidate by then, the Star Alliance will fall apart and the people of the Killing Alliance will be satisfied.”
Su Cha blinked. “Jin Duan is also your disciple? Then why was he attacked?”
Jin Duan said in a deep voice, “The dispute between me and the Star Alliance has nothing to do with it. The reason why I was attacked and Jin Mou was implicated was because of what happened to you last time. A rather unexpected person died. He was a traitor of the Tang Sect and had joined the Killing Alliance. Among the hidden clans, there is one called the Bo family whose influence is the largest among all the aristocratic families. The person in charge now is temperamental and unpredictable. Last month, he sent someone to kill this traitor, yet now the Tang Sect is still looking for trouble. The people of the Killing Alliance don’t dare to find trouble with the Bo family for the time being. They put the blame on us because the Tang Sect traitor passed through the Earth Domain, which is my territory.”
Su Cha: “…”
Could this Bo family be that of the one she doted on?
Before Su Cha could ponder over the matter, Shi Wei had already revealed his true intention: “My request is for the Star Alliance to be handed to Miss Su.”
