The golden-armored powerhouse knew that things werent looking good when he saw Luo Yunyang and the Floating Butterfly Goddess arrive.
Although he could still go all out and risk it, his chances of success were very slim. After all, the Middle Hall Masters cultivation base was not any weaker than his own. The two of them could end up in a deadlock, and the same could happen to the others.
Furthermore, he had come to a tacit understanding with the Middle Hall Master right from the start so he could only concede right now.
However, as he was about to smile and accept his defeat, a flustered, desperate voice wiped the smile off his face.
The Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers!
No, the Four Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers had actually rushed over. There had been five different colors of Mysterious Underworld Beings originally, but now there were only four.
The golden-armored powerhouse cared very much about the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers. Although they were only Taishi Yuan Venerates, their strength when they joined forces was comparable to a Taichu Yuan Venerate. This alone was enough to make them very important.
Furthermore, they had absorbed the power of an Ancient Mysterious Underworld, which had given them a strong foundation. They might even improve greatly in the future.
What happened? the golden-armored Mysterious Underworld Being asked the Thick Earth Mysterious Underworld Being, who led the pack.
The majority of the Mysterious Underworld elites also shifted their attention onto the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers, as this was the first time they were seeing them in such a sorry state.
My Lord, my brother has been captured by him. The Thick Earth Mysterious Underworld Being no longer cared about losing face. He knew that things were as critical as they could get.
Luo Yunyang had reunited with his Human Race reinforcements, so they would really become the Four Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers if they did not save their brother.
One of the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers had been captured!
Almost everyone turned to look at Luo Yunyang after hearing what the Thick Earth Mysterious Underworld Being had said. Many of them felt that Luo Yunyang was simply too impressive.
Escaping from the grasp of the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers was already a nearly unachievable feat for ordinary Taishi Yuan Venerates.
However, he wasnt even a Yuan Venerate. While breaking out of the impenetrable encirclement of the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers, he had also captured one of them. How crazy was that?
Some Mysterious Underworld elites shot looks of contempt at the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers. Besides blaming the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers for allowing Luo Yunyang to escape, they also blamed them for losing one of their own.
How utterly shameful!
The golden-armored Mysterious Underworld powerhouse did not chide the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers, as this wasnt the right time for that. Instead, he looked at the four nervous brothers and pondered. Deep down, he knew that he had to demand the release of the Green Wood Mysterious Underworld no matter what.
Otherwise, losing one of the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers would affect the Mysterious Underworld Races strength.
Is the Green Wood Mysterious Underworld Being in your hands? The golden-armored powerhouse glared icily at Luo Yunyang.
Luo Yunyang had loosened up completely after getting behind the Middle Hall Master. Thus, although the golden-armored powerhouses death stare was intimidating, he wasnt afraid of it.
He had been obliged to shoulder everything back in the Dual Sky Realm. Now, however, he didnt have to bear everything on his own.
Sure enough, the Middle Hall Master answered before Luo Yunyang could. Golden Mysterious Lord, if theres anything you want, talk to me instead. Hes just a kid. Intimating a kid like this isnt nice!
Luo Yunyang felt his cheeks flush as he felt slightly embarrassed about being called a kid.
On second thought, he was indeed a kid compared to the Middle Hall Master, who must have lived for eons.
Since he had already been labeled a kid, he automatically took a step back and hid behind the Middle Hall Master before glancing back at the Mysterious Underworld Race powerhouse called the Golden Mysterious Lord with puppy eyes.
The Golden Mysterious Lord was also aware of the situation. The advantage that they held had been flipped on its head.
The Golden Mysterious Lord would have simply let the matter slide if this had been about an ordinary Yuan Venerate. However, he couldnt stand aside and do nothing considering the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers worth.
Alright, he is a kid. You ask him then. Did he capture one of the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers?
The Golden Mysterious Lord placed emphasis on the word kid to show that he obviously disagreed with labeling Luo Yunyang that way.
The Middle Hall Master was well aware of what the Golden Mysterious Lords thoughts were as he turned leisurely and shot a casual glance over at Luo Yunyang.
This little kid had silently resolved a crisis that could have cost the survival of the Human Race and captured an important member of the Mysterious Underworld Race at the final moment.
His actions had definitely glorified the Middle Hall Master. He was very fortunate to have such a subordinate, so he was pleased about it. After sinking in euphoria for a moment, he asked Luo Yunyang, Yunyang, did you capture one of the brothers? Dont be afraid. All of us are here. Speak the truth loudly.
Luo Yunyang felt a little depressed deep down. Although it was alright for the Middle Hall Master to call him a kid based on the difference between their age and power, how could he really be treated as a kid?
After some slightly silent grousing, Luo Yunyang responded, Hall Master, I saw Green Wood, who is one of the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers, get heavily injured and lie in the void. He was on the verge of death, so I hurriedly brought him back in order to save his life.
The Golden Mysterious Lords expression turned very ugly. He could feel an indescribable rage building up in his chest and suffocating him.
Thats utter rubbish! You obviously injured my brother, yet now you are acting as if you are a kind soul. Tell me what exactly you used to break the Five-Element Mountains nomological laws! The Fire Red Mysterious Underworld Being, who was one of the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers, was a hot-tempered chap. Thus, he was already fuming over their failure.
Luo Yunyang had obviously injured his brother, yet he had the audacity to act like he was worried and even call himself a kid. This was really hard to tolerate.
Hence, the Fire Red Mysterious Underworld Being immediately voiced his displeasure. Unfortunately, after he said his piece, he realized that many of his people were glaring contemptuously at him. Even his three brothers were shooting him warning stares.
Only then did he realize that he had said the wrong thing.
The fact that his brother had been captured by Luo Yunyang was completely disgraceful. Saying such a thing out loud was akin to throwing their dignity on the ground and stomping on it.
Ha ha One should lose graciously. Golden Mysterious Lord, I think that you are not someone who treats defeat with bad grace. The Middle Hall Master eyed the Golden Mysterious Lord and gently wriggled the Hexagon Longsword in his hand.
The Golden Mysterious Lords face tightened as he pondered for a moment before speaking. Middle Hall Master, I must take back Green Wood of the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers. If the Human Race chooses not to return him, then war shall be the only answer!
The Golden Mysterious Lord mentioned war in absolute seriousness. The Middle Hall Master and the others had solemn expressions on their faces when they heard the word war as well.
They all knew that the war the Golden Mysterious Lord had mentioned wouldnt just involve the group of them engaging in a battle. In fact, such a situation wouldnt be considered an all-out war.
The Human Race and the Mysterious Underworld Race would definitely have an all-out war. The higher-ups of the Human Race and the Mysterious Underworld Race had known for many years that this would happen someday. However, both sides were not fully confident about winning, so they had been making preparations. Hence, this war had been delayed time and time again.
The Golden Mysterious Lord was one of the higher-ups of the Mysterious Underworld Race, and his status wasnt lower compared to the Middle Hall Masters. If he declared war, then it would be inevitable.
After hesitating for a split moment, the Middle Hall Master responded faintly, I would welcome a war.
Two of the most important figures around were unwilling to take a step back, making the atmosphere around the Sealed Sky City reach a standstill.
The Hexagon Spear of the Golden Mysterious Lord had been raised up. Many people were aware that when this long spear danced, a great battle between two massive races would begin.
At that moment, Luo Yunyang suddenly sensed that someone was speaking to the Golden Mysterious Lord. Although he did not know who that person was or what had changed, he could sense that this person had a higher status than the Golden Mysterious Lord.
I can take a step back, the Golden Mysterious Lord mumbled after drawing a deep breath. Green Wood must be returned to us. Were willing to give the Sealed Sky City in exchange.
The Sealed Sky City was the Human Tribes most important city on the outskirts of the Dual Sky Realm. Although the Dual Sky Realm had been destroyed, the position of the Sealed Sky City was still very important.
The Middle Hall Master did not want to have an acrimonious falling-out this time either. He did not know what the Mysterious Underworld Race was waiting for, but the Human Races ultimate trump card was not ready yet.
The chances of them winning if an all-out war broke out wouldnt be high.
Hence, after pondering this for a moment, the Middle Hall Master answered, The Sealed Sky City belongs to the Human Race in the first place. Its not very nice of you to take our stuff and trade it for your Mysterious Underworld race elite.
The Middle Hall Master continued before the Golden Mysterious Lord could speak. Green Wood was captured by Luo Yunyang. I think it would be better to negotiate with him if you want to take Green Wood back. After all, I cant simply meddle with his affairs and take complete charge of all his decisions.
The Golden Mysterious Lord glared at the Middle Hall Master before turning his attention to Luo Yunyang. He hated Luo Yunyang to the core, as a great scheme of the Mysterious Underworld Race had been ruined by this brat.
Luo Yunyang, what are your conditions for releasing Green Wood? The Golden Mysterious Lords tone was clearly impatient.
