Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan’s face fell, as he had not expected Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red to come up with such an offer.
Although he was very unwilling to accept these conditions, he still couldn’t express his grievances after Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red shot a glance at him.
He was indignant, yet he did not dare question Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red’s decision. Meanwhile, Heavenly Venerate Joyless had turned completely pale after listening to those conditions.
He had never thought that he would end up like this one day.
“Father, help me!” Heavenly Venerate Joyless exclaimed as he held his father’s hand.
Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan didn’t say a word. He could only stare at Luo Yunyang ferociously. What he wanted most was Luo Yunyang to reject the offer.
Everything would be fine as long as Luo Yunyang refused.
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red had already revealed his end game by proposing these conditions in such an explicit manner. Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan didn’t believe that Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red would still choose to shrink back.
There would be no problem as long as Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red did not backtrack.
Luo Yunyang pondered this while eyeing Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red. Although he wanted to kill Heavenly Venerate Joyless very much, he wasn’t cruel enough to slaughter every single member of the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect.
Some of his words had been said so that he would assume and build his identity.
“Ha ha ha! What a generational genius! Greetings, Great Heavenly Venerate Samsara. I’m Yuanshang!” An old man of short stature who was in high spirits emerged from the void.
Four golden stars were faintly visible as they revolved around the old man’s head when he walked out.
Divine Origin Martial Stars!
In order words, the old man had broken through the fourth level of the 13 Origin Martial Stages and could be considered a fourth-level Heavenly Venerate within all the Great Cosmoses.
Luo Yunyang didn’t know this old man, but Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan appeared elated when he saw him.
He bowed respectfully almost immediately when he saw the old man and said, “Greetings, Great Heavenly Venerate Yuanshang!”
Great Heavenly Venerate Yuanshang nodded in acknowledgment before turning to look at Luo Yunyang and saying, “It’s better to squash enmity than keep it alive. Both Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red and I feel the same way. Why don’t you show us some respect and agree to the conditions offered?”
Heavenly Venerate Joyless would still be dead meat if the conditions offered were met!
On the other hand, Luo Yunyang would be facing two Great Heavenly Venerates if he rejected Great Heavenly Venerate Yuanshang’s suggestions. Hence, Heavenly Venerate Joyless knew right away that his fate was sealed. After all, there was no way Luo Yunyang would be that insane.
Luo Yunyang had arrived full of anger at the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect. However, he had calmed down after rescuing Lu Bingyue.
Although revenge had to take place, there was some stuff that still had to be done.
Luo Yunyang glanced solemnly at Great Heavenly Venerate Yuanshang before saying, “Heavenly Venerate Joyless has to die. I can spare the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect, but they can forget about owning this mountain.”
“I am going to turn this place into an endless abyss. Otherwise, it will be hard to dispel my hatred!” Luo Yunyang added in a lighter tone, “Great Heavenly Venerate Yuanshang, I have already shown you respect. What do you think about it?”
Great Heavenly Venerate Yuanshang was surprised. Although he felt that this young person’s impudence didn’t know any limits, he wasn’t willing to be the enemy of such a strong opponent.
After all, Heavenly Venerate Joyless wasn’t related to him.
Although he had a relationship with the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect, their interactions were fairly normal. The reason he had come was to show his respect for Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red.
Hence, he didn’t say anything. Instead, he glanced at Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red. “Brother Scarlet Red, what do you think?”
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red didn’t want to go against a strong opponent like Luo Yunyang at such a critical juncture either. After all, a huge opportunity was about to appear.
Heavenly Venerate Joyless deserved to die, and the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect wouldn’t make a big deal out of changing location.
The humiliation suffered was the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect’s problem and had nothing to do with him. Hence, after some hesitation, Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red mumbled, “I can agree to this.”
These words made Heavenly Venerate Joyless feel a little dizzy.
He had never thought that his life would be used as a bargaining chip or that he would have no say as he was deprived of it.
“No, I don’t agree! Father, save me! Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red, save me!” Heavenly Venerate Joyless wailed and screamed hysterically.
Then, he suddenly sobered up from the hysteria and shot upwards without any hesitation.
He had no destination in mind, as all he wanted to do was escape.
However, just as he was about to take off, a large hand appeared within the void and crushed him instantly.
Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan was more concerned about the future of the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect than about his son’s life, as the spot that the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect occupied was extremely important to the sect.
This concerned the reputation of the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect!
Although Heavenly Venerate Joyless was important to him, he still wasn’t as important as the foundations of the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect.
“Great Heavenly Venerates?” Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan pleaded as the five other second-level Heavenly Venerates also looked at Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red.
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red was aware of Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan’s intention, but he had already made up his mind so he would not change his decision.
Hence, he only glanced at Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan with a steely expression.
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red did not speak, but his expression said all that needed to be said.
Great Heavenly Venerate Yuanshang merely sneered as he said, “It is very kind of Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red to help you all.”
“If any of you push your luck, don’t blame me for being ruthless.”
The murderous intent behind that sentence shook every member of the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect, especially the five second-level Heavenly Venerates. Even though they resented Luo Yunyang for destroying the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect, they also knew that they had no other options at the moment.
Heavenly Venerate Joyless was the one who was suffering the most. He wanted to speak out but he couldn’t open his mouth. It was so bad that he couldn’t even use his eyes to plead for his case.
Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan was really reluctant to give up the grounds of the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect. After all, they had operated on this land for ages.
While their current location wasn’t considered the best or most treasured sacred mountain available in the entire Yunguang Cosmos, it was still considered one of the top 10 locations. It would be very hard for them to find such a good location again if they were to lose it now.
The Forsaken Sky Sword Sect’s prestige would also be adversely affected even if Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan continued helming it.
However, they had no other choice now.
As Luo Yunyang stood under the starry sky and executed his Samsara Palm, the great land went deadly silent and a crushing wheel descended on it.
Everyone watched closely as the Samsara Wheel smashed against the ground and an earth-shattering sound resounded.
The mountain belonging to the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect, which had once exuded a divine aura, was turned to dust instantly. Although all the disciples of the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect had left the spot, most of their belongings remained inside.
Even though they wanted to bring their belongings out, a certain origin seal had restricted the movements of their belongings. Therefore, it would take much longer for them to retrieve them.
Luo Yunyang hadn’t given them any time to do so, and neither had Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red and Great Heavenly Venerate Yuanshang.
Hence, all the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect martialists could only watch helplessly as their mountain was destroyed while their Patriarch, Heavenly Venerate Qingyuan, could only watch on in a daze.
A huge ocean replaced the mountain that had originally been there as Heavenly Venerate Joyless was also crushed into powder by the Samsara Palm.
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red and Great Heavenly Venerate Yuanshang stood quietly in the distance and watched indifferently while this body of water replaced the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect.
They looked indifferent indeed.
It seemed as if the situation of the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect had nothing to do with them. As many disciples of the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect were leaving, Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red said softly, “Besides the fact that he is seeking revenge over the slightest grievances, he is also extremely arrogant.”
“He isn’t just taking revenge. He is also telling other people that he is not someone to mess with by using the Forsaken Sky Sword Sect as an example.”
“In fact, his appearance will only do us good. Nothing bad will happen to us.” Great Heavenly Venerate Yuanshang smiled while speaking faintly.
“After all, we will have an extra high-level pair of hands if he joins us. The odds of us entering the new cosmos will increase greatly.”
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red chuckled and agreed. “Yes, it would be better if he died in that newly-formed cosmos.”
“We wouldn’t have to do it deliberately either.” Great Heavenly Venerate Yuanshang grinned.
“Opportunities are abundant in the new cosmos. However, some time ago, the records on the chaotic stone I got from the new cosmos made it seem like we should take some precautions before acting.”
“Although we can compete against the opportunities that Hong Meng Sacred Hall uses to test their Shenzis, we mustn’t be the ones to act first.”
“Heavenly Venerate Samsara could become the best weapon in our hands. I don’t believe that he wouldn’t be intrigued by a newly-formed cosmos.”
“His fate would depend entirely on his destiny if he encountered the Zongzis of Hong Meng Sacred Hall ”
Great Heavenly Venerate Scarlet Red nodded and smiled. “We must not let go of this opportunity that descended upon Yunguang Cosmos. Otherwise, I’m afraid we will really nest in Yunguang Cosmos for our entire lives.”
