"You agree? That brat has actually given me a big help."
A bizarre laugh suddenly filled the heavens and earth. When it entered everyone's ears, it sounded as though the person was laughing right next to them. However, there was no one in sight.
"Embryonic Breathing realm!"
Mo Wen was shocked. With a flash of his silhouette, he subconsciously stopped. After landing on the ground with a somersault, his looks became completely dignified. Now he could not concern himself with chasing Old Fellow Qin, because the owner of the sound probably had Embryonic Breathing realm Cultivation.
What he had thought was true. The Qin Clan actually had an expert in the Embryonic Breathing realm!
For sure, only an ancient martial art practitioner of the Embryonic Breathing realm could make his voice heard to such an extent. Although now Mo Wen's Cultivation was just at the Qi Nucleation realm, he had previously been a Golden Elixir realm ancient martial art practitioner, almost at the limits of ancient martial art practitioners. How could he not understand ancient martial art practitioners?
A dark silhouette silently appeared on a rooftop in the Qin Clan's backyard, lifting its head to look at Old Fellow Qin, who was still flying in mid-air. He gestured his hand inwards, and a beam of black light shot out into the air like a thread of shining silk. It caught up with Old Fellow Qin, wrapped around his body, and pulled him down.
Looking at the figure enveloped in a black cloak, a sense of danger welled up inside him. An absolute expert of the Embryonic Breathing realm was a figure that he couldn't handle for sure.
Mo Wen took a deep breath. With a flash of his silhouette, he fled from the Qin Clan manor house like a bolt of lightning. He knew that with the Embryonic Breathing realm expert there, it would be almost impossible to do anything against the Qin Clan today. Given the circumstances, he could only retreat for now.
His speed was as fast as lightning. With a dash, he had traversed dozens of meters, almost exceeding the speed that all the Qi Nucleation realm ancient martial art practitioners should have.
In the blink of an eye, he appeared next to Qin Xiaoyou. He carried her in his arms, at the same time reaching out to grab Qin Shaoyang beside him. His arm shook, and a fierce gush of hot air surged into his body. It instantly shattered his core, directly and completely crippling his cultivation.
However, he did not kill Qin Shaoyang. After all, he was still the Chairman of the Blue Ocean Group. Keeping him alive still had its uses.
Old Fellow Qin looked at Mo Wen, who was escaping, and said anxiously, "Envoy Guiluo, please kill that youth." He understood deeply how terrifying Mo Wen was. If he let him escape this time, then the next time he came knocking on their door, he would probably be even more powerful. He could even have broken through to the Embryonic Breathing realm.
He did not dare leave such a young and powerful opponent to grow stronger. It would be like a sharp blade constantly hanging over his head. It was possible it could drop and behead him at any time.
"Our terms of cooperation did not bind me to an obligation to face strong foes on your behalf. However, since we have become partners, when I can, I will help share your burden. Consider this a show of my sincerity."
Envoy Guiluo, whose entire person was enveloped in a dark robe, laughed bizarrely. He said in a sharp voice, "Do not worry, he can't get away."
The words were just uttered when with a shake of his shadow, he disappeared from the spot, seeming to have never been there in the first place.
The next moment, a hundred meters away, a dark gray silhouette quietly emerged. It then flickered once more and disappeared again.
In the time it took to take two or three breaths, he had caught up with Mo Wen, blocking him. The silhouette that was enveloped under the cloak was like a spirit, floating strangely in the air. A pair of crimson eyes stared sinisterly at Mo Wen.
"Who are you?"
Mo Wen frowned. The person before him was clearly not from the Qin Clan. From his attire, he seemed to be a person who could not see the light of day. His first thought was of the Heretic organization.
Recently, the Heretic forces had been often active around the capital, but he never thought the Qin Clan would have connections to it.
"The person who will kill you."
The dark gray silhouette laughed bizarrely. The silhouette was sometimes near and sometimes far. Its voice and looks were strange to the point where one couldn't tell if it was male or female.
Mo Wen curled the corner of his mouth and said plainly, "An Embryonic Breathing realm expert is indeed strong. But if you plan to kill me, you're not up for it."
"Such arrogant words. Youth will be youth."
The dark gray silhouette smiled mindlessly. It flashed past, its pale palm extending from its sleeves. The fingers formed a claw, reaching out toward Mo Wen's head.
At the same time, a terrifying pressure burst out from him, hitting Mo Wen's body forcefully. The wind howled, swirling up sand and pebbles. The terrifying Embryonic Breathing realm pressure completely enveloped Mo Wen. The surrounding air tightened, seemingly ready to lock Mo Wen down.
If a common Qi Nucleation realm ancient martial art practitioner was faced with the pressure of an Embryonic Breathing realm ancient martial art practitioner, he wouldn't be able to even move a finger. At this point, he could only wait to be trampled upon. With the absolute differences in Cultivation, the person almost didn't have any defense against it.
However, Mo Wen was once a Golden Elixir realm ancient martial art practitioner. He was familiar with the usage of pressure. How could the pressure from an Embryonic Breathing realm be strong enough to have a huge effect on him?
The moment when Envoy Guiluo released his pressure, Mo Wen released a wave of Qi fluctuation as well, slowly enveloping his whole body. Even though the Qi pressure wasn't strong, it was extremely strange.
The pressure formed by Envoy Guiluo, when met with Mo Wen's Qi pressure, strangely parted to the sides. Now Mo Wen was like a slippery ball, and the strong Embryonic Breathing realm pressure seemed to not have an effect on him.
Because Envoy Guiluo's pressure lost its effect, Mo Wen's movements were not hindered. When the claw came down, Mo Wen's silhouette flashed backwards, then retreated dozens of meters.
Envoy Guiluo's attack immediately missed, not harming Mo Wen one bit.
A glint of surprise flashed in Envoy Guiluo's eyes. He never thought that Mo Wen would use such a method to block his pressure. He felt slightly taken aback.
"So you do have some skills. However, against an absolute difference in Cultivation, any tricks are meaningless."
Envoy Guiluo plainly looked askance at Mo Wen. His silhouette shook, and his shadow silently traversed the space, once again chasing with Mo Wen.
However, when he caught up with Mo Wen, his silhouette had disappeared from its original spot. It was like instant movement. In an instant, he appeared 20 meters away, with barely any trace of movement. The technique was mysterious and superb.
Mo Wen looked at Envoy Guiluo and plainly said, "Your cultivation is only at the beginning stage of the Embryonic Breathing realm. Although your ability far exceeds my own, you cannot keep me here."
He was escaping, not because he was afraid of Envoy Guiluo, but because he knew there was no meaning in staying. Although he was no match for a beginning stage Embryonic Breathing realm ancient martial art practitioner, they would not necessarily be able to handle him, either.
If an intermediate stage Embryonic Breathing realm expert appeared, maybe his life would be at risk, but the beginning stage of the Embryonic Breathing realm was still too weak.
"This is somewhat interesting. Since you are so confident, then let us wait and see."
Envoy Guiluo laughed playfully, as though he had come across something funny. However, his eyes were not as casual as before and instead became serious.
Through their short exchange, he naturally would know that the youth before him was really not simple.
At least in terms of speed, Mo Wen was not slower than he was. Although he had been chasing the youth, the youth was also carrying two people. In comparison, he was the one who had the advantage.
"No need to wait and see. I, for one, don't have the time to deal with you. We'll see whether you can catch up with me first."
Mo Wen laughed coldly. Messing with an expert of the Embryonic Breathing realm? He was not stupid. Wasn't that suicide? Although he was not afraid of a beginning stage Embryonic Breathing realm expert, he did not dare to fight with this kind of person. Naturally, he would keep as far away from them as possible. He would not risk battling such experts.
His words were just uttered when Mo Wen raised his arm. Qin Shaoyang was sent flying upside down, directly crashing towards Envoy Guiluo. This person seemed to be of no value to him, and holding onto him seemed to be a burden.
As for being a hostage, he did not believe that Qin Shaoyang's life could threaten the bizarre Embryonic Breathing realm expert. He was almost certain that the person before him was from the Heretic organization, as those strange antics and aura were no different from those of the Heretic organization.
The people of the Heretic organization would not care about whether others lived or died. They cared not for the lives of the people of the Qin Clan.
In the instant he threw out Qin Shaoyang, Mo Wen's silhouette flickered, dashing in a direction away from the Qin Clan. His silhouette was like a bolt of lightning, traversing hundreds of meters in the blink of an eye. Due to the high speed movement, Qin Xiaoyou was curled up in Mo Wen's embrace. Her tiny face was buried in the crook of his arm, blocking it from the frenzy of the whistling gale.
Envoy Guiluo looked at Qin Shaoyang who came crashing at him. He subconsciously raised his hand, ready to beat him into a bloody mist, but recalling that he was cooperating with the Qin Clan, he hesitated for a moment.
Then, he ignored him all together. His silhouette flickered past him as he dashed in the direction Mo Wen had gone. Although he had no qualm with Mo Wen, the youth had triggered his competitive spirit. The youth had dared to act so arrogantly in front of him, so he wanted to see how capable he really was.
Because no one bothered with Qin Shaoyang, after being thrown a distance, he plunged straight to the ground. The sound of the wind whistled in his ears. The speed of his descending body made his face turn pale, and he blacked out.
His current Cultivation was crippled. He was like an ordinary person. If he fell from such a height, he would most probably fall to his death.
Two silhouettes flew out from the Qin Clan manor house, one in front and one right behind. They headed down the mountain at terrifying speeds. They were like whirlwinds, but their speed was even faster than wind. After the silhouettes passed by, only then did the gale they stirred up whistle.
In a flash, the two silhouettes had traversed dozens of kilometers.
After chasing for a while, Envoy Guiluo's gaze finally became imposing. The youth's speed was actually so swift, almost comparable to that of an Embryonic Breathing realm ancient martial art practitioner. He had been chasing Mo Wen for a long while but had not been able to shorten the distance between them.
The youth still had a young girl in his embrace. Although he did not want to admit it, in reality the youth's speed indeed exceeded his.
Envoy Guiluo looked at the silhouette that was like a lightning bolt in front of him and mumbling to himself said, "Interesting. What sort of place bred such a young monster like this? His background is most likely not simple."
