The lady's expression changed abruptly, followed by a gasp of distress. She left immediately. "Please dress yourself."
The lady in white was Fairy Li Wang.
The fake Celestial Master Zuo's face flushed crimson in indignation. He could not care less about anything else. Just when he started wearing the sleeves, Mu Yun and Mu Lei broke into his room. "Master, did you encounter an ambush?"
The fake Celestial Master Zuo did not know how to react. He was overwhelmed with embarrassment.
Luckily, Mu Lei and Mu Yun only swept their eyes across their surroundings. Immediately, they left and joined the fight, without expressing their shock caused by something unexpected.
This time, the four messengers finally revealed how powerful they indeed were. After spending a few centuries together, they were a league of their own together because of their extraordinarily good teamwork and mutual understanding. The fight with the four maids was nothing difficult to them.
"Alive! I want them alive!" The fake Celestial Master Zuo screamed with rage.
"Yes!" All four of them answered in unison.
However, Meng Tianer and the rest of them seemed to have realized that they could no longer accomplish their mission. The four messengers were once again intercepting their escape. They threw each other a gaze, then ripped open something in their mouths. Abruptly, they fell to the ground, and their flesh turned dark in an instant.
The fake Celestial Master Zuo was shocked. He sprang forward. Before he managed to strangle Meng Tianer, he was immediately stopped by Mu Feng, "Master, they are poisoned! You cannot touch her!"
Apparently, the fake Celestial Master Zuo was driven by his anger. Mu Feng's words finally brought his lost mind back. After recovering from his anger, he saw that their eyes, nose, lips, and ears were streaming with blood. Shortly after, their bodies were dissolved by a highly corrosive sulfuric acid and started to melt away.
Almost instantaneously, their bodies turned into a pool of yellow pus with a nauseating smell. The fake Celestial Master Zuo started to sweat coldly. Fairy Li Wang reentered and threw him a look. "Are you fine?"
The fake Celestial Master Zuo smirked. "Thanks to you, I am doing fine."
Fairy Li Wang was not very pleased by what she saw, as she had been addressing herself as a lady of great virtue. It was a shame to her that she had to see his naked body.
She saw the pool of yellow pus and said, "Why didn't you keep them alive?"
Celestial Master Zuo answered coldly, "I wanted them alive, too. Unfortunately, all of them were brave servants who would rather die than to be caught alive. However, they cannot possibly make a complete retreat. You know how to call back the spirits of the deceased, so you can always summon them for interrogation."
Fairy Li Wang said nothing. Immediately, she started to perform the ritual. A few moments later, she stopped. "There is no use. Their souls are shattered and gone."
The fake Celestial Master Zuo did not know what to say. He clenched his fists tightly and responded with a smile, "I did not know about the existence of suchpoison that can shatter and rip one's soul into nothing."
"What do you mean? We have this poison." She frowned.
With a tight smile, he responded, "You have it, but I don't."
Fairy Li Wang was immediately agitated. "What are you trying to say? Are you implying that I was behind the attack?"
The fake Celestial Master Zuo answered briefly, "I dare not. I was only speaking the truth."
Fairy Li Wang felt dejected. She tried to hold her frustration and answered calmly, "You and I are on the same team. Why should I attack you in such a vicious way? There must be someone who tried to alienate us from one another. How could a person as smart as you believe in such a lousy trick?"
He said nothing further. He turned and sat down at the table before instructing the four messengers, "All of you, identify their true identity. I want you to run a thorough background check. Do not miss out even the tiniest details!"
