Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master only had one motive for wanting to kill Luo Yunyang. He wanted to save his dignity, or rather the dignity of the Three Era Supreme Sect’s main sects.
It could even be said that the main sect had gone all out in order to prevent Luo Yunyang from becoming a Zongzi. However, even so, Luo Yunyang had still ultimately defeated and killed Sky Origin Zongzi.
Luo Yunyang was only one person, but the damage he could deal to the main sect was massive.
If he was allowed to become a Zongzi, then the main sects of the Three Era Supreme Sect would be absolutely disgraced and their prestige would drop. In the future, controlling the other subsidiary sects would become a thorny issue.
Thus, after hesitating for a moment, this Sect Master had unleashed a powerful attack, blaming it on the name of the Blood Demon.
The Blood Transformation Heavenly Venerate had already fallen, so there was no longer any power behind this name. Now, whatever Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master said was the law.
As for the discontent of the subsidiary sects, this was no longer a problem that Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master thought about. Right now, what he needed to do was put an end to the resistance of the subsidiary sects.
With forceful suppression, he would kill Luo Yunyang.
Many subsidiary sect powerhouses already understood the way Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master was thinking. However, due to the suppression of this very majestic power, they actually couldn’t resist, even though it was what they wanted deep down.
This feeling was extremely uncomfortable!
There was very little they could do, and that was to watch Luo Yunyang, who was their only hope, fall.
Yue Liuli was unwilling to accept this reality. She still wanted to speak up for Luo Yunyang. However, just as she was about to say something, an old martialist arrived before her. “Shut your mouth!”
Yue Liuli’s expression turned sour. She recognized this person. He was an elder of the Three Era Supreme Sect’s Buddha Sacred Mountain.
However, this person also had another identity. He was Yue Liuli’s grandfather.
“Grandfather, this matter…” Yue Liuli hadn’t finished speaking when the elder chided her. “It’s just a disciple. There is no need to say anything. Don’t tell me you would want to destroy the Glazed Titan Sect’s doctrine all because of one disciple?”
These words made Yue Liuli fall silent. The Glazed Titan Sect’s doctrine was too important to her. Deep down, she wasn’t willing to see that happen.
Just as Yue Liuli was about to speak, Luo Yunyang’s voice resonated. “Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master, you are helpless to deal with me!”
The giant mark was still hurtling over as he said that. The void around started to shatter, and everything around broke into fragments. However, Luo Yunyang had already vanished from beneath the massive divine mark without a trace.
There was no longer any trace of him. For the Buddha Sacred Mountain and the entire Three Era Supreme Sect, this was a major event.
The expression of Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master, who had looked as though everything was within his control, changed thoroughly. His hands rapidly formed hand seals and void fragments started to appear all around the Everlasting Sky Podium.
Luo Yunyang’s body had vanished strangely within these void fragments. It seemed as if he hadn’t been there at all.
Luo Yunyang had fled!
Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master had spared no effort in a bid to kill him, yet Luo Yunyang had actually escaped without a trace. Furthermore, he had done so while many people were watching.
Once this news circulated, Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master would be severely destroyed.
There was even a possibility that he would become a laughing stock and a target of public mockery.
“He took the Eternal Divine Pestle! He took away the Eternal Divine Pestle!” Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master roared.
The death of Sky Origin Zongzi was already an extremely infuriating matter for Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master, who had thoroughly supported Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master’s intention to kill Luo Yunyang.
However, Luo Yunyang hadn’t been killed and the situation had already reached a dreadful state. Luo Yunyang had vanished and the Eternal Divine Pestle he had snatched was missing as well.
“Search for Luo Yunyang! Three Era Thorough Searching!” Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master rushed away from his throne. Right now, it looked as though he wanted to devour someone.
Three Era Thorough Searching was a top technique of the Three Era Supreme Sect. It was even said that when one was in the Pure Sun Great Cosmos, it would be difficult to hide from the power of Three Era Thorough Searching.
However, such a mighty power similarly required a heavy price. Thus, Three Era Thorough Searching hadn’t been used by the Three Era Supreme Sect Master in many years.
Because of Luo Yunyang, Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master had decided to use Three Era Thorough Searching now. Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master didn’t shirk from this suggestion, neither did Immeasurable Sacred Mountain Master.
Even though he had some objections, he knew that if the Eternal Divine Pestle was lost, it would be a massive blow for the Three Era Supreme Sect that would be hard to recover from.
Thus, even though there was some pettiness and disagreements between the three sect masters, on the whole, their interests were common.
Hand seals were quickly formed. These seals caused a large chink to appear in the void above the Everlasting Sky Podium. Within this large chink, which didn’t seem to exist in this world, a treasured mirror appeared.
Various images kept flashing on the treasured mirror. There were images of Luo Yunyang in quiet meditation, Luo Yunyang cultivating, Luo Yunyang…
There was even an image of Luo Yunyang fleeing. However, Luo Yunyang’s current whereabouts never appeared.
As Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master looked towards Immeasurable Sacred Mountain Sect Master for the third time, Immeasurable Sacred Mountain Master spit out a mouthful of blood. When this blood landed on the treasured mirror, the mirror that seemed able to see the three realms became very clear.
However, when the treasured mirror displayed Luo Yunyang’s face, it started to shatter in the void.
“Why can’t we find him?” Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master sounded furious. This was the outcome he was most unwilling to experience.
The Eternal Divine Pestle was too important. Without it, not only would his cultivation weaken severely, but the might of the entire Eternal Sacred Mountain would also deteriorate. The moment this happened, he would be a sinner in the eyes of the whole Eternal Sacred Mountain.
The recipient of his shout was Immeasurable Sacred Mountain Sect Master. It could be said that searching for people required Immeasurable Sacred Mountain Sect Master’s assistance.
Immeasurable Sacred Mountain Sect Master replied coldly, “The reason he cannot be found is because Luo Yunyang is no longer in the Pure Sun Great Cosmos!”
Luo Yunyang was no longer in the Pure Sun Great Cosmos? That thought absolutely made his blood run cold. Although Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master had already guessed as much, having the truth verified was very difficult to accept.
“Then… Then where is the Eternal Divine Pestle? Is it still in the Pure Sun Great Cosmos? We have to search for the Eternal Divine Pestle quickly!”
A sect master who was always calm, even when the ground around him was trembling, was now flustered. This only showed how important this inherited treasure of the Eternal Sacred Mountain was.
Immeasurable Sacred Mountain Sect Master looked sympathetically at Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master and said with a tinge of sorrow, “It is no longer in the Pure Sun Great Cosmos.”
Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master’s face flushed. He stared at Immeasurable Sacred Mountain Sect Master as though he wanted to devour him.
“I have already tried my best.” Under any other circumstances, Immeasurable Sacred Mountain Sacred Master wouldn’t have yielded. However, at the moment, he was speaking rather gently.
Profound Calm Zongzi had already walked over quickly. As he glanced at the somewhat frenzied Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master, he had a bad feeling.
The Eternal Divine Pestle was of great importance. It was like the keepsake of Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master. Without such a keepsake, perhaps Eternal Sacred Sect Master would find it difficult to retain the position of the sect master.
Now that the Divine Eternal Pestle was lost, the damage the Three Era Supreme Sect would suffer would be immense.
As he was about to back away stealthily, a slap landed heavily on his face. The instant Profound Calm Zongzi was slapped, he didn’t dare move anymore.
He even prepared the other side of his face. He would allow Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master to hit him if he wanted to continue.
Although Profound Calm Zongzi had already made all sorts of preparations, he still felt extremely miserable deep down. His master was by Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master’s side. He could have stopped this beforehand.
This slap on his face meant that his own master wasn’t prepared to stop Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master either.
“Junior Brother, Profound Calm is indeed responsible about this matter,” Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master said after Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master had calmed down.
Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master opened his mouth but didn’t speak. He rapidly shot towards Yue Liuli.
“Get Luo Yunyang out. If he doesn’t hand over the Eternal Divine Pestle, I will kill off your entire sect.”
Yue Liuli’s expression turned really ugly. Although she was a sect master, it would be difficult for her to stop Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master. After all, the difference between them, regardless of cultivation base and status, was worlds apart.
“Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master, I hope you can mend your ways. If you dare make a move on the Glazed Titan Sect, the other subsidiary sects definitely won’t sit back and watch.”
An old man with a radiant glow spoke up with a resounding voice. “At the most, the Three Era Supreme Sect will only be left with the three main sects.”
These words were extremely important. Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master wanted to make a move but could only take a deep breath and swallow his pride and anger in the end.
Losing the Eternal Divine Pestle was already unbearable. If the subsidiary sects revolted, then he would have no way of remaining a sect master.
“Alright, alright, Glazed Titan Sect Master. Pass a message along to Luo Yunyang. As long as he is willing to hand over the Eternal Divine Pestle, I will let him be a Zongzi.”
Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master had an ugly look on his face when this was said. However, he didn’t say anything in the end.
After the subsidiary sect powerhouses had gathered, Immeasurable Sacred Mountain Sect Master approached Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master and said softly, “I reckon that Luo Yunyang will still have to return in the future! The Eternal Divine Pestle will also return to the Three Era Supreme Sect!”
