Su Mo, Jun Wuxi, and Hua Suiyu flew thousands of meters away from Huangfu Qing.
Su Mo frowned as he stared at Huangfu Qing and the rest in the distance.
“Fifth Senior Brother, Seventh Senior Sister, are we really going to join the Netherworld Devil Sect and associate ourselves with Cold Blood Hall?” Su Mo asked softly.
He was on pretty good terms with Jun Wuxi and Hua Suiyu, so he posed his question directly without reservations.
“Eleventh Junior Brother, we are left with no choice!” Jun Wuxi sighed.
“Eleventh Junior Brother, we are now under his control. We can only take things as they come!” Hua Suiyu said, her face pale. They had already pledged their allegiance in name, but Huangfu Jing still did not trust them and he had left his Qi strength within each of their bodies.
They would not be able to escape with his Qi strength within them.
Su Mo’s face turned grave and he carefully studied the Qi strength left within his body even as he monitored the situation from afar.
Huangfu Qing stood commandingly in front of the six major powers and as he surveyed the group said, “Dear all, I will ask one final time, who would be willing to pledge their allegiance to the Netherworld Holy Sect? This is your final chance. Don’t blame me for being ruthless!”
“Huangfu Qing, as a Martial Royal expert, how could you align yourself with Cold-blood Hall and the Netherworld Devil Sect? We will never join forces with you!” the peak master of Great Heaven Peak yelled.
“What a joke!” Huangfu Jing scoffed and continued, “I have always been a member of the Yellow River Demonic Sect and also one of the eight protectors of Shady Hall. How could you say I’ve turned my back on my sect?”
Everyone was first stunned by his words before realization dawned. It seemed Huangfu Qing was a member of the Netherworld Devil Sect’s 50 halls as well as the protector of Shady Hall.
However, Huangfu Qing had been in the Celestialspirit Sect for close to a hundred years. This meant that the Netherworld Devil Sect had already started to lay the groundwork a hundred years ago.
“Xunyue, pledge your allegiance!” Zuoqiu Ting shouted from his place next to Huangfu Jing. He looked tenderly at Qian Xunyue and said, “Cold-blood Hall will conquer the entire East Continent. If you join us, together, we can become top-class martial artists!”
Qian Xunyue’s face was extremely cold. She looked straight at Zuoqiu Ting and said frostily, “Zuoqiu Ting, people who tread on different paths will never be comrades. I have misjudged you!”
Anger boiled within her, but her face gave nothing away. Zuoqiu Ting had pursued her for dozens of years, and though she had not pledged herself to him, she had grown fond of his refined and gentle demeanor.
Today, whatever previous goodwill she had for him had disappeared. From this day on, they could no longer be friends!
Zuoqiu Ting frowned at these words, then sighed as he said, “Qianxun, don’t force my hand!”
Zuoqiu Ting felt like he was left with no choice. He didn’t want to attack Qian Xunyue unless it was absolutely necessary.
Huangfu Jing shot a glance at Zuoqiu Ting, then Qian Xunyue before he shook his head in resignation. He too knew of Zuoqiu Ting’s feelings for Qian Xunyue.
“Zuoqiu Ting, I’ll leave her to you!” Huangfu Qing said flatly. This was also his way of testing Zuoqiu Ting’s resolve.
Zuoqiu Ting was not originally from the Netherworld Devil Sect. He had been with them for arounf ten years.
Therefore, Huangfu Qing left Zuoqiu Ting to deal with Qian Xunyue as a test of his loyalty to the Netherworld Holy Sect.
Zuoqiu Ting gave a slight nod, his gaze still fixed on Qian Xunyue, on this beautiful woman that haunted his dreams at night.
Huangfu Qing looked around and let out a cold laugh when he saw that no one was willing to pledge their allegiance. “Don’t blame me for what I’m about to do since you’ve all already dug your own graves!”
“Kill them all!” Huangfu Qing commanded with a wave. All the experts from Corpse Hall and Cold-blood Hall attacked at once, displaying their incredible prowess.
“Breakthrough!” the experts from the six major powers cried out as they acted in unison. They each protected a few disciples from their sect and fled.
These experts had made use of this short break to use telepathy in order to speak amongst themselves.
If they continued to fight, everyone was bound to die. Therefore, they decided to flee in separate directions to divert attention, with each Martial Royal Realm expert in charge of protecting a few young top talents.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Everyone moved together and quickly fled in all directions. Since they were all Martial Royal Realm experts, they moved at incredible speeds as they streaked through the sky.
However, the experts from Corpse Hall and Cold-blood Hall were not about to let them off so easily. Their attacks were enough to kill ten lower level Martial Royal experts.
Screams rang out and blood rained down from the heavens. The ten Martial Royal experts, together with the disciples they were guarding, were all smashed into pieces.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The Space kept being torn open as the experts tunneled deep within the void and frantically made their escape.
“Do you think you’d be able to escape?” Huangfu Qing smirked as he commanded his men to go after them. He himself went after Vice Palace Master Tai Shen along with two experts from Corpse Hall.
Gong Lin and Sikong Yan were both under the protection of Vice Palace Master Tai Shen, who was also tearing the Space apart as he fled.
Althought there were about 30 Martial Royal Realm experts who were fleeing, there were more than 60 experts from Corpse Hall and Cold-blood Hall, including Zuoqiu Ting and the others who had pledged their allegiance.
This resulted in a situation where two people were basically chasing after one expert. Furthermore, the experts from Corpse Hall were generally stronger than the experts from the six major powers.
No one could tell how many of them would be able to successfully escape.
Qian Xunyue was not weak either, and she immediately chose to flee with Hong Qingxuan, slipping through a space rift.
“Xun Yue, you won’t be able to escape!” Zuoqiu Ting laughed and immediately followed after her.
In an instant, all the experts had left and the area was returned back to normal.
Su Mo’s heart sank when he saw that Zuoqiu Ting had gone after Qian Xunyue and Hong Qingxuan. He didn’t know how strong Qian Xunyue actually was. If she didn’t manage to escape, Hong Qingxuan would also be in danger.
“Zuoqiu Ting feels so deeply about Qian Xunyue. He probably wouldn’t kill her!” Su Mo guessed. He wasn’t able to tear apart the Space and follow after them, so he could only comfort himself with these words.
“Fifth Senior Brother, Seventh Senior Sister, what are we going to do?” Su Mo asked Jun Wuxi and Hua Suiyu.
“Sigh! What else can we do? We don’t even know if our Sect has been attacked by Cold-blood Hall, so we can only wait for our Master to return!” Jun Wuxi said with a sigh.
Su Mo frowned at those words. He was about to leave, for he would probably lose this chance once Huangfu Qing returned.
Even though Huangfu Qing’s Qi strength was still within him, he was going to throw all caution to the wind. He would find a way to deal with it later after he had fled.
“Eh?” Su Mo’s eyes focused on a point just ahead of them.
The talents from Cold-blood Hall, Xue Tianqiong and Xue Mo, were rapidly heading toward him.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Over a hundred talents from Cold-blood Hall shot toward them until they had quickly surrounded Su Mo and his fellow disciples.
Jun Wuxi and Hua Suiyu turned pale.
Su Mo’s eyes narrowed and a cold gleam flashed past his eyes.
“Su Mo, today is the day you die!” Xue Mo cackled, his eyes bursting with a killing desire.
