Towering, majestic divine mountains surrounded the Rising Sky Feather Sect!
As a top-notch sect in a great Cosmos, the Rising Sky Feather Sect had always intimidated the other smaller sects with its grandiosity.
However, now, the atmosphere in the Rising Sky Feather Sect was solemn. Although most ordinary disciples didn’t know what had happened, they still felt uneasy upon seeing the look on the elder’s face.
Some well-informed disciples had already learned the news from some sources. Some were even leaving the mountain already.
On Qingfeng Cliff, a dozen Galaxy-Grade Green Phoenixes were dancing. They did not only look beautiful, but they also allowed the spirit energy in the surroundings to gather quickly.
This was the gathering place of the female disciples in the Rising Sky Feather Sect as well as fourth-level Heavenly Venerate Nongyue’s stronghold.
Heavenly Venerate Nongyue had a profound cultivation base and was also gentle and sweet-tempered. However, no one in the Rising Sky Feather Sect dared to bully her, not only because of her Heavenly Venerate cultivation base, but also because she was Yuan Venerate Wanliu’s favorite disciple.
Hence, it was the biggest dream of many female disciples to follow Heavenly Venerate Nongyue.
Qingfeng Cliff wasn’t spared the disturbance that was occurring either.
“Sister Dong’er, please come over.” Luo Dong’er was quietly cultivating in a serene valley. Her cultivation base had reached the Galaxy Grade after she had come to the Rising Sky Feather Sect.
Galaxy-Grades were considered powerhouses in the Divine Union. However, she was nothing more than a qualified core disciple in the Rising Sky Feather Sect.
Luo Dong’er was Luo Yunyang’s sister, so she had received the best preferential treatment after entering the Rising Sky Feather Sect.
Not only had she become Heavenly Venerate Nongyue’s direct discipline, but she had even obtained bountiful resources to aid her in improving her cultivation.
Luo Dong’er had improved astonishingly quickly thanks to all these resources and become one of the Rising Sky Nine Genius female disciples of the Rising Sky Feather Sect.
“Senior Sister Yuwen.” Luo Dong’er walked hastily towards the lady that had spoken to her. “Senior Sister, aren’t you studying the Mysterious Wave Scripture? Where did you find the time to look for me?”
Senior Sister Yuwen was a young, slender lady with the appearance of a 17-year-old. Her cultivation base was at the peak stage of the Galaxy Grade and could be considered fairly comparable to Luo Dong’er’s.
“Dong’er, my dear girl, why do you always think about cultivation?”
After saying that, Senior Sister Yuwen quickly formed a series of hand signs to seal up the space around them.
“Dong’er, do not ask why. You just have to listen to me.” Yu Wenqing caressed Luo Dong’er’s shoulders with two hands and said impatiently, “Think of a way and leave the Rising Sky Feather Sect quickly.”
“If you can conceal your identity, then it would be best to find a good location to hide. Of course, it would be best if you could enter another sect.”
“Remember, you must leave within 10 days. Otherwise, you will not be able to leave!”
Luo Dong’er, who had been training wholeheartedly, knew nothing about what was going on outside. However, this didn’t mean that she could not sense the tense atmosphere around the Rising Sky Feather Sect.
Still, Luo Dong’er wasn’t worried about this, as she felt that the Rising Sky Feather Sect wouldn’t face many problems with Yuan Venerate Wanliu at the helm.
However, she finally realized the gravity of the matter after listening to how impatient Yu Wenqing’s instructions were.
“Senior Sister Yuwen, what exactly is going on?” Luo Dong’er asked.
“Don’t ask. It’s a huge secret.” Yu Wenqing deepened her tone and added, “You just have to know that I will be leaving right away.”
Yu Wenqing had to leave immediately. Everyone had to know that Yu Wenqing was one of the Rising Sky Nine Geniuses and had always received the best training available.
How could she leave at such short notice?
“This is a hopeless situation, and this place is no longer a paradise.” Yu Wenqing looked at the confusion on Luo Dong’er’s expression and reminded her, “Dong’er, remember. You must find a way to leave this place.”
“Master might be telling you about this, but you have to fight for a spot to leave.”
Yu Wenqing left hurriedly after saying that.
Luo Dong’er felt pressing distress after listening to what Yu Wenqing had said.
In Luo Donger’s opinion, Yu Wenqing wasn’t someone that talked nonsense. There was definitely something Yu Wenqing didn’t know if she was speaking in such a manner.
Luo Dong’er vaguely sensed this as a wealth of thoughts ran through her mind.
“Dong’er, please make a trip over.” As Luo Dong’er was pondering deeply, a gentle voice rang in her ears.
This voice belonged to Luo Dong’er’s master, Heavenly Venerate Nongyue, who had a huge influence in the entire Rising Sky Feather Sect.
Heavenly Venerate Nongyue was in her small cave dwelling, and her expression looked mostly normal, so much so that she even looked rather indifferent.
“Greetings, Master!” Luo Dong’er greeted her respectfully.
Heavenly Venerate Nongyue gently gestured with her hands and said, “There’s no need for formalities, Dong’er. I originally thought that I could guide you as a disciple to the best of my abilities. However, it seems like that’s impossible now.”
“The sect is in grave danger, so if things stay that way, it will turn into an utter disaster. I’ve already prepared your belongings. You’ll leave this place immediately.”
Heavenly Venerate Nongyue directly silenced Luo Dong’er and added, “Don’t speak. There’s nothing you can do if you remain. Go back to the place where the Milky Way’s Human Tribe comes from. I’ve asked the Sect Master to open up a spatial portal. You’ll be safer there.”
Luo Dong’er knew that it would require an immense amount of energy to open up a spatial portal directly to the place where the Milky Way’s Human Tribe was situated. She hadn’t even received such treatment when she’d come over to the Rising Sky Feather Sect.
However, they were actually going to use a spatial portal to send her back now.
“Master, may I know what exactly is going on?” Luo Dong’er asked with determination.
Heavenly Venerate Nongyue glanced at the solemn expression on Luo Dong’er’s face and hesitated for a moment before answering, “There’s no harm in telling you. Yuan Venerate Wanliu has fallen and our sect will be in turmoil.”
Luo Dong’er knew what a Yuan Venerate was and what it represented. However, she did not understand why a Yuan Venerate’s death would send their sect into turmoil.
“When the Yuan Venerate falls, the spirit essence in his body will spread out and his martial path comprehension will lack an owner.”
Heavenly Venerate Nongyue continued. “Hence, the fall of a Yuan Venerate will invite many people to fight for the inheritance of the fallen Yuan Venerate, which will naturally send our sect into an upheaval.”
“Nothing would happen if another Yuan Venerate from the sect was taking over control. However, you must have seen the state of the Rising Sky Feather Sect. What’s going to happen next should be a feast for powerhouses.”
Luo Dong’er finally understood the situation as she looked at Heavenly Venerate Nongyue and asked, “Is there really no hope for the Rising Sky Feather Sect?”
“Hong Meng Sacred Hall has its own rules regarding the death of a Yuan Venerate. Only a sect’s Yuan Venerates are allowed to participate in such matters. Other people aren’t permitted to do so.”
Heavenly Venerate Nongyue’s tone became much more solemn than before as she said, “While there won’t be any Yuan Venerates knocking on our doors, the Heavenly Venerates that are coming are all well-known figures. We are in dangerous waters now.”
“Why isn’t the Patriarch making his move to make those…” Luo Dong’er did not finish her sentence, but Heavenly Venerate Nongyue understood her intention clearly.
She smiled at the fuming Luo Dong’er. “There hasn’t been any activity from the people that will be participating so far. Furthermore, the Patriarch wouldn’t do anything to them even if they started preparing to take action.”
“One reason is that the Patriarch’s injury is too serious and the price for taking action is too huge. Secondly, Hong Meng Sacred Hall would move in if the Patriarch dared to slaughter those elite Heavenly Venerates before they entered our sect.”
“If that happened, it would truly be…”
What Heavenly Venerate Nongyue explained was just the most common rules. In fact, she did not tell Luo Dong’er about some of the crises that could occur.
For example, if Yuan Venerate Wanliu were to take action, then the ones retaliating wouldn’t be the Yuan Venerates from Hong Meng Sacred Hall but the Yuan Venerates that were already standing guard outside the Rising Sky Feather Sect.
Also, Heavenly Venerate Nongyue and the other Heavenly Venerates might have wanted to escape, but the targets on their backs were too large to conceal and they had already been targeted. Even if they tried to escape, it would be impossible.
“Remember, it is very important for you to leave the Rising Sky Feather Sect. Wait for your brother to become a Yuan Venerate Almighty so you can continue the legacy of the Rising Sky Feather Sect.”
Heavenly Venerate Nongyue could sense the dimness in Luo Dong’er’s heart as she consoled her.
As Luo Dong’er and Heavenly Venerate Nongyue’s conversation was going on, a figure emerged unhurriedly on a blazing red sun.
The figure’s body was reflecting with nine different flames that converged into a nine-colored halo, making the figure look like a deity.
“Ha ha… Yuan Venerate Wanliu is actually dead. The Rising Sky Feather Sect is not too bad. This time, I’ll have to do my best and compete for it.”
The man tore apart the void after mumbling to himself and arrived just 30 million miles away from the Rising Sky Feather Sect.
In an old river, an old man in a woven rush raincoat was casually fishing.
However, there were no fishing hooks on his fishing rod, so it looked like a game when he put the fishing line in the river.
The old man sat in the same spot for a dozen years straight without uttering any words or making a sound, just like a stone statue.
“Ha ha ha! A Yuan Venerate has returned to dust. Great!” After exclaiming in joy, the old man gently raised the fishing rod in his hand and reeled in a Five-Clawed Golden Dragon casually.
The Five-Clawed Golden Dragon roared in rage and appeared ferocious. However, it showed zero resistance in the face of the old man.
“Let’s go!” The old man shook the Five-Clawed Golden Dragon suddenly and it transformed into a massive wyvern that took the old man away as they tore through the void.
