Chapter 2378 A Message From the Fire Worship Sec
“Who’s that young man? Even his servant is so powerful!” Leng Yin had a grave expression on his face.
“You’re right. He managed to kill the powerhouse by sect leader’s side who’s at the Ninth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage with just a casual wave of his hand!” Hong Yun nodded in agreement. A wave of helplessness rose in her heart when she recalled the scene from earlier.
At this moment, the burly middle-aged man standing behind Gan Ru Yan who was also the skinny middle-aged man’s companion said, “He’s probably a Three Tribulation Bodiless Celestial at least!”
Since the burly middle-aged man was the strongest person in the Fire Worship Sect, even Zi Feng was weaker than him, nobody doubted his words.
“Heavens! A T-Three Tribulation Bodiless Celestial?”
“A Three Tribulation Bodiless Celestial at least… This means he could be stronger. He could be a Four or Five Tribulation Bodiless Celestial!”
“Who’s that young man? Even his servant is a Three Tribulation Bodiless Celestial!”
The eyes of the high-ranking officials from the Fire Worship Sect were filled with terror as they discussed among themselves.
“I’ve always thought Eminent Celestials are the strongest existence in the Dao Martial Saint Land… However, it seems like Eminent Celestials are nothing compared to Bodiless Celestials!”
“Eminent Celestials are like the glow from a firefly while Bodiless Celestials are like the light from the moon!”
“I didn’t expect that those who failed the Heavenly Tribulation are even stronger than Eminent Celestials!”
At this moment, all the four Guardians were looking at Gan Ru Yan.
Qing Huo said, “Ru Yan, inform him about this.”
“Maybe later.” Gan Ru Yan shook her head. “Since we have ten days, let me think about it first.”
“What’s there to think about? Your life is at stake!” Qing Huo exhorted.
“What if he isn’t as strong as them?” Gan Ru Yan looked at Qing Huo with a bitter smile on her beautiful face that held a tense expression. If Duan Ling Tian was no match for them and she asked for his return, would she not bring harm to him then? Put aside the fact that she liked him, even if she did not, she could not ask for his return just to save herself. He was her sister’s husband and the father of her niece after all.
“Ru Yan…” Qing Huo opened his mouth to speak.
Gan Ru Yan interrupted him and said, “It’s fine, master… I’ll think about it!”
This was the first time Gan Ru Yan had interrupted Qing Huo when he was about to speak ever since she became his direct disciple. As soon as she finished speaking, she did not wait for his response and flew into his cultivation place. Since her cultivation place was currently occupied by the two mysterious powerhouses, she did not want to enter without their permission. Who knew if they would take offense to it? They might not kill her within these ten days, but she did not want them to kill the other members of the Fire Worship Sect just to vent their anger. She was the Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect, she would not sit and watch as the members of the sect died.
Qing Huo sighed. He was not angry at Gan Ru Yan since he knew her very well. ‘This lass is too soft-hearted…’
“Lord Guardian!” At this moment, one of the Vice Sect Leaders of the Fire Worship Sect looked at Qing Huo and solemnly said, “If Lord Sect Leader refuses to inform Lord Duan Ling Tian about this, those two will surely kill her after ten days. At that time, they might even vent their anger on our Fire Worship Sect!” His words echoed the thoughts of many high-ranking officials from the Fire Worship Sect.
For a moment, everyone’s eyes were trained on Qing Huo as they waited for his response.
“What? Are all of you worried Lord Sect Leader will bring harm to the sect?” Qing Huo who was already frustrated to begin with became angry when he heard the vice sect leader’s words.
As soon as the burly middle-aged man who followed Gan Ru Yan heard the exchange, he instantly turned around and glared at the Vice Sect Leader of the Fire Worship Sect.
When Zi Feng saw the burly middle-aged man turned around, he instinctively cried out, “Please have mercy!”
The sound of an explosion rang in the air as the burly middle-aged man slapped his palm in the air. An energy shot out from his palm and killed the Vice Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect in just a blink of an eye before anyone could react.
This scene was almost identical to the scene earlier where the mysterious young man’s servant killed the burly middle-aged man’s companion with a palm strike as well… Both of them had killed effortlessly.
Under everyone’s fearful eyes, the burly middle-aged man said before he entered Qing Huo’s cultivation place, “Whoever dares to disrespect my master will end up like him!”
The crowd only regained their senses after the burly middle-aged man’s figure disappeared from their sight.
Qing Huo only smiled helplessly when he saw this. It was obviously satisfying to see the burly middle-aged man kill the vice sect leader for disrespecting his disciple. However, as a Guardian of Fire Worship Sect, he felt a small pinch of regret when he thought about how the Fire Worship Sect had lost a powerhouse at the Sixth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage. Nevertheless, he knew he had no control over the burly middle-aged man’s actions. After all, the burly middle-aged man only followed one person, and that was his direct disciple, Gan Ru Yan.
As for the three other Guardians from the Fire Worship Sect, they only looked at each other before they shook their heads and sighed.
Meanwhile, the other high-ranking officials from the Fire Worship Sect were completely silent. None of them dared to speak at all.
“Disperse,” Zi Feng said solemnly.
As soon as Zi Feng finished speaking, all the high-ranking officials from the Fire Worship Sect sighed in relief and left immediately. Even if they felt dissatisfied, they did not dare to express it after seeing what happened.
After everyone left, Zi Feng turned to Qing Huo and said solemnly, “Guardian Qing Huo. His words sounded disrespectful, but you know it has merits. You…”
Qing Huo knew what Zi Feng was going to say so he quickly interjected, “Guardian Ling Tian gave me a communication jade token before he left… It seems like he knew Ru Yan wouldn’t ask for help even if she encounters trouble. That’s why he left a communication jade token with me. I’m to inform him if anything arises…”
The eyes of the Guardians brightened immediately when Qing Huo took out a jade token that Duan Ling Tian had inscribed.
“Guardian Ling Tian…” Qing Huo recounted everything that had happened with the mysterious young man and his servant as he spoke into the jade token. After he crushed the communication jade token to send the message, he sighed. ‘Ru Yan, please don’t blame me… I’m doing this for your own good. I told him that the young man’s servant is a Three Tribulation Bodiless Celestial at least and that he shouldn’t return if he’s not confident he could take them on.’
On one of the snow-capped peaks in the northern region…
Duan Ling Tian and Ke’Er stood side by side in a pavilion as they admired the scenery of the snow falling.
At the side, two ladies were having a snowball fight.
“Auntie Tian Wu, I got you again!”
“Si Ling is so powerful now! Auntie Tian Wu won’t go easy on you next time! You better watch out!”
“Bring it on! I’m not scared!”
When the two melodious voices rang in the air, it attracted Duan Ling Tian and Ke’er’s attention.
“Si Ling… seems to enjoy Sister Tian Wu’s company.” Ke’Er smiled.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded with a faint smile. However, his smile froze when he sensed something.
He quickly took out a jade token. As soon as he took it out, a streak of faint light shot from the southeast and merged with the jade token.
“It’s a message from the Fire Worship Sect!”
A worried expression appeared on Ke’er face as she asked, “Brother Tian, is it from my sister?”
As soon as Ke’er finished speaking, he crushed the jade token in his hand and the voice of an old man rang in the air.
“It’s Guardian Qing Huo!” Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes when he heard Qing Huo’s voice. However, it did not take long before his eyes widened in surprise. ‘A mysterious young man whose servant is at least a Three Tribulation Bodiless Celestial? He knows about the Fire Worship Sect and my connection with Gan Ru Yan? If I’m not mistaken, these people must be from the dragon clan. The young man is probably Li Bing’s master,’ his expression continued to darken as he thought to himself, ‘However, San Dao said that killing Li Bing was justified so the dragon clan wouldn’t interfere, right?’
“Sister!” Ke’er’s expression turned grim when she learned about her sister’s predicament.
