After killing the three men in black robes, that sacred golden radiance gradually disappeared. Mo Wen glanced at the treasured Vajrapani Talisman, which was slightly torn, and sighed softly, as this strong treasured Vajrapani Talisman at most could be used one more time. Although he killed the three men in black robes, the price was great.
“Mo Wen, you…” Pei Fengwu looked at Mo Wen in shock as everything in front of her was too much, and she had a hard time recovering from it. Just now, she was surrounded by peril, but the enemies were all dead in the blink of an eye, and all had died at the hands of this youngster – Mo Wen.
“What’s that thing of yours?” Cai Yan instantly noticed the Vajrapani Talisman in Mo Wen’s hand and curiosity filled her eyes. They could see that Mo Wen being able to kill the three men in black robes was related to that thing in his hand.
“Treasured Talisman. In order to save you, I have paid a great price. Such a great loss!” Mo Wen was still feeling the pinch, as the treasured talisman was a critical item that could save a person’s life during a critical moment, but every time it was used, that was one less time it could be used again.
“Such a skinflint.” Cai Yan rolled her eyes at Mo Wen. They fought the three men in black robes with all their might to save all of them and nearly lost their own lives. However, Mo Wen felt such a great pinch when he merely lost a treasured item.
“Saving a life is more meritorious than building a seven-storey pagoda. You saved both our lives, which means both of us owe you a huge favor. You don’t need to feel the pinch. You will surely be rewarded in the future.” Pei Fengwu consoled him while her eyes looked at the Vajrapani Talisman in Mo Wen’s hand with a tinge of curiosity. Merely a piece of spell talisman had such great power, and it was different from the spell talisman that she had known.
Piff! Cai Yan murmured silently. Previously, she had nearly died while obstructing the man in black robes. Why did nobody remember that credit? Now, she actually ended up owing Mo Wen a favor instead.
“Ahem. There’s no need for repayment, just don’t leak my secret out.” Mo Wen laughed faintly. If today’s matter was leaked, it wouldn’t be a good thing for him, as a lot of people would think of killing him to plunder his treasure.
“It’s alright not to let the cat out of the bag as long as you give us some hush money,” Cai Yan said with her arms folded. She looked like she would tell unless she was given some benefits.
“I think it’s better to shut the mouth forever than to give hush money.” Mo Wen furrowed his brows while looking at Cai Yan with an evil smile as he spoke.
“Don’t you dare…” Cai Yan’s heart palpitated, and she gasped as Mo Wen actually dared to kill her to shut her up forever.
“Alright. Both of you stop bickering. Sister Yan, we will keep our silence about this matter and pretend that this didn’t happen.” Pei Fengwu glared at Mo Wen before persuading Cai Yan, who appeared to be upset. She also knew that if this matter were to be leaked, especially when the people of the Ghost Lair knew about it, it would be detrimental to Mo Wen.
“This bastard, if he didn’t have all those things in his hands, I’d surely teach him a good lesson.” Cai Yan snorted angrily.
Mo Wen warned Pei Fengwu and Cai Yan, “There are many people from the Ghost Lair intercepting outside. Although there aren’t experts in the Golden Elixir realm, all are in the Embryonic Breathing realm. It will be difficult for anyone to rush out within a short period of time.”
Along the way, he had met with many men in black obstructing the way, so there might be even more people outside. He reckoned until now nobody had been able to get out of this place.
The Ghost Lair’s background was not simple, as they could easily send out so many experts in the Embryonic Breathing realm. That’s why they could fight the Huatian Palace for hundreds of years.
“We have to get out to help them immediately and kill more people of the Ghost Lair. There might not be a sacrificial altar at this place, so the mission could only be terminated.” The three people each chose a passage and dashed outwards. With the three people’s abilities and without the three men in black robes, almost nobody could stop them.
When the three of them left the big karst cave, a white figure appeared silently from one of the obscured passages like an apparition without any trace. Nobody discovered his existence. Even Mo Wen hadn’t detected him.
This person’s slender figure had a porcelain complexion with eyes glowing like the moonlight. His face was so enchanting that he would leave a deep impression at first glance. However, nobody could decipher the gender of this person. He was the so-called evil creature, Mo Qingtian.
Previously, he had escaped the big karst cave at the first opportunity, but he had returned without anyone’s notice.
“He actually had the primitive treasured talismans which have existed since the ancient times. That’s why sister has been paying attention to this person. I am also getting curious,” Mo Qingtian muttered to himself before a white light flashed slightly, and he disappeared weirdly from the original spot.
Mo Wen chose the passage that he escaped through just now. He dashed outwards all the way and met some men in black from the Ghost Lair. However, all died at his hands. As long as there was no exceptional expert in the Golden Elixir realm, nobody could stop him.
After that, he caught up with that girl from the Fengwu team and Shangguan Qingyou in no time. Both of them had just met and were besieged by four men in black in the Embryonic Breathing realm.
This place was not far away from the entrance of the cave. It was about 100 meters before they could leave this cave completely. However, the nearer they were to the outside, the more men in black they met.
“Feihong, I will be using Dancing Clouds and Flying stars in five seconds to hamper these four people. You will take the chance to escape.” Shangguan Qingyou swerved the two green light longswords like two green light water dragons with amazing power. They suppressed the two men in black who were attacking her. The surrounding walls and the floor of the cave were almost densely filled with thin sword scars.
“No. If I were to leave, you might die in the siege.” That woman by the name of Feihong shook her head instantly, gnashed her teeth, and began to fight the other two men in black. If she were to leave, Shangguan Qingyou wouldn’t have the ability to fight the siege alone.
“Stupid! If none of us gets out, how will Huatian Palace get the message? Don’t forget that the Ghost Lair has three exceptional experts in the Golden Elixir realm. Sister Fengwu and Sister Cai Yan may not be able to hold out for much longer. If this continues, we might all die here. Don’t let Sister Fengwu and Sister Cai Yan’s effort go to waste,” Shangguan Qingyou instructed coldly. They had met so many men in black obstructing their way, so the other passages could be just as bad or even worse. Now, they were only 100 meters away from the entrance of the cave, so they must give it a shot no matter what.
“Alright. Qingyou, you must hang in there. I will get out of here to send a message to Huatian Palace and will be back to support you immediately.” Feihong clenched her teeth tightly and nodded. She knew this was not the time to let emotions affect her decision. Only when Shangguan Qingyou used the Dancing Cloud and Flying stars would it be possible for them to obstruct the four men in black in the Embryonic Breathing realm. Otherwise, she basically couldn’t escape at all.
Shangguan Qingyou took a deep breath and commanded in a low voice, “Kill!” The two swords in her hands suddenly became brilliant lights, and her figure instantly became extremely fast. A whole patch of stars and clouds silently enveloped the entire place like in a dream and trapped the four men in black in it.
Feihong, who was totally prepared, took this chance to flash herself out. In the blink of an eye, she was already dozens of meters away, and soon after a few flashes, she disappeared into the passage.
“How dare you!”
The four men in black of the Ghost Lair were shocked instantly and began to bellow one after another. If someone got out of this place because of them, the death penalty would await them. Immediately, the four people frantically used all their might to attack Shangguan Qingyou in an attempt to break free from the restriction of that patch of stars and clouds.
However, the power of the Dancing Clouds and Flying Stars was so great that not only did it trap those of the same Cultivation, but also those with Cultivation of a level higher, making it very difficult for them to get out. Among the four men in black, two of them had Cultivation in the later stage of the Embryonic Breathing realm, yet they couldn’t do anything at this time.
In the stars and clouds, Shangguan Qingyou’s slender body was dancing on the clouds with the two swords in her hands like two pieces of colored ribbons. She was moving them up and down and killing in all directions. After a short while, she actually single-handedly suppressed all four men in black.
However, there was some hopelessness in her eyes, as she knew that once she used the Dancing Clouds and Flying Stars, her Inner Qi would be completely exhausted in a short period of time, and she would no longer have any fighting power. She basically couldn’t wait for Feihong to return to assist her.
Just when Shangguan Qingyou was completely hopeless, a golden light suddenly lit up in the distance. At first it was far away, but in the blink of an eye, it appeared closer. The next flash, it entered the mass of stars and clouds directly like a male lion pouncing on its prey. It hit and shattered the mass of stars and clouds, and instantly, they dispersed into the air.
Shangguan Qingyou was dumbfounded, and a chill ran down her entire body. There was actually someone who was so strong they could shatter her stars and clouds from the outside. She looked hopelessly at that streak of golden light and was totally stunned the next moment.
That streak of golden light was not her enemy. It pounced on those four men in black.
A youngster with a flaming longsword in his hand merely swished twice, and he killed two people. The remaining two men in black with Cultivation in the later stage of the Embryonic Breathing realm were completely dumbfounded. They turned their bodies in an attempt to escape, but they were not given the chance. Two streaks of black light descended from the heavens and filled the cave with cold air which caused Shangguan Qingyou to shiver unconsciously.
As those two men in black were enveloped in the black lights, their bodies stiffened and soon the escaping figures froze.
At that instant, the two streaks of terrifying Qi from the golden light swords chopped down and directly sliced them into two. The remaining bodies were burned in the golden flame. The shocking hot aura completely warmed up the previously cold air. The cold and the hot seemed like an illusion, but the four dead men in black were definitely real.
“How could it be you!” Shangguan Qingyou widened her eyes and looked at Mo Wen in shock. She couldn’t imagine that it was actually Mo Wen who had saved her.
“Why can’t it be me?” Mo Wen looked at Shangguan Qingyou with curiosity.
“Don’t think I will be grateful to you for saving me. I will not fall for that trick,” Shangguan Qingyou snorted coldly and turned her head aside stubbornly.
“You’re sick!” Mo Wen whispered and couldn’t be bothered with her again. Mo Wen was not interested in talking to her. He flashed and flew out of the cave immediately. Shangguan Qingyou, this woman has had an inexplicable prejudice against me since the beginning.
“It must be intentional. He is definitely a bastard.” Shangguan Qingyou clenched her fist tightly and reminded herself repeatedly not to fall for Mo Wen’s trick. Just now he could have dashed out, but he returned inexplicably. He must be waiting for the chance to save me intentionally so that I will be grateful to him. The man is indeed not a good person.
