Chapter 70: Turbulent Undercurrents
Ye Chen looked at Bai Luoli in surprise.
At this moment, Bai Luoli slowly said, “I went to the Sunset Cloud City to investigate many times and interviewed many people. Of course, the people were almost bribed long ago. Even if they weren’t bribed, I wouldn’t dare to say.”
“So, I found some demons that were lurking in the Sunset Cloud City and inquired about the situation back then. In the end, I found an old tree demon!
It sat cross-legged in the Xu Clan’s courtyard back then.
According to the old tree demon, Xu Zhenying, the patriarch of the Xu Clan back then, and Xiao Lie, the current City Lord of Sunset Cloud City, were both candidates for the position of City Lord of the Sunset Cloud City.
However, it was said that Xu Zhenying was upright and honest in his work. In terms of ability, he was unrivaled among the eight great aristocratic families.
However, Xu Zhenying was too upright and honest in his way of life. Back then, when he was the law enforcement officer of Sunset Cloud City, he was in charge of the place. Hence, he became known as the iron-faced playboy. In Sunset Cloud City, Saint Son was guilty of the same crime as the commoners…many aristocratic families were executed because of Xu Zhenying’s upright and upright behavior.
It was precisely because of this that the seven aristocratic families of Sunset Cloud City did not like Xu Zhenying, nor did they like the Xu Clan.
Later, when the old City Lord was in critical condition, he had to choose a new City Lord from among the old City Lord’s right-hand men. Xu Zhenying and Xiao Lie were the two candidates for City Lord.
Later on, for some unknown reason, one night, countless black-clothed men surrounded the Xu Clan.
“They charged into the Xu Clan and killed countless people of all sizes in Xu Clan. Xu Zhenying was also besieged by experts. In the end, he was no match for them and died an unnatural death.”
Bai Luoli said in front of Ye Chen.
Ye Chen’s eyes were slightly closed, as if he had already foreseen this outcome. He took a long breath and asked, “Have you confirmed that it was done by the other seven great families?”
At this moment, Bai Luoli immediately replied, “I’ve confirmed it. I went to visit the other demons and learned that the experts from the other seven great clans had left that night.
“Moreover, a small demon within the pile of corpses also discovered that there were people from the other seven great clans among the discarded corpses.”
“In other words, it must have been Xiao Lie who wanted to become the city lord back then. However, he knew that he was unable to snatch Xu Zhenying away. In addition, the other six clans have a grudge against the Xu Clan. Hence, he joined forces with the other six clans to eliminate the Xu Clan!” Bai Luo Li added.
Ye Chen waved his hand and said indifferently, “Alright, I got it. You can leave first!”
“Yes!” Bai Luoli bowed and then left.
At this time, Seventh Senior Sister looked at Ye Chen in surprise and said, “Little Chen, are you going to avenge Eldest Senior Sister?”
Ye Chen nodded.
“Do I have to go now?”
Ye Chen shook his head and said, “I’ve waited for so many years. I’m not in a hurry for this moment. When I advance to the Transcending Tribulation Realm, it will be the day when the seven great aristocratic families of Sunset Cloud City will be destroyed.”
Sunset Cloud City.
In a large hall.
The City Lord of Sunset Cloud City was sitting upright on the main seat.
Six people were sitting on both sides of the long table.
At this moment, Xiao Lie frowned slightly and said, “I’m sure you all know about the boiling news recently, right?”
Xiao Lie had sword-shaped eyebrows and a tall figure. He wore a light blue long robe and looked very heroic.
“City Lord, are you talking about the Black Devil Sect?” At this moment, a goateed middle-aged man asked.
The goateed middle-aged man was the head of the Yang Clan, Yang Tianqi.
He was one of the eight aristocratic families in Sunset Cloud City.
Now that the Xu Clan was gone, to be precise, he should be one of the seven aristocratic families.
“That’s right. Recently, it’s rumored that the Sect Master of the Black Devil Sect, Mo Yunfei, has come out of seclusion. Moreover, he has already entered the Transcending Tribulation Realm,” Xiao Lie said coldly.
Hearing this, the other six people still had lingering fear in their hearts.
“Back then, when the righteous path exterminated the demons, all the righteous sects in Sunset Cloud City attacked together and forced the Black Devil Sect into the sky-reaching Grand Canyon. However, none of us expected that the Sect Master of the Black Devil Sect could actually break through to the Deva Realm and enter the Transcending Tribulation Realm. Back then, the righteous path of the world besieged Mo Yunfei. Now that he has broken through, I’m afraid he will come back to take revenge!” Xiao Lie said.
“A Transcending Tribulation Realm expert? Even in the entire Sunset Cloud City, I’m afraid that there isn’t a single Transcending Tribulation Realm expert. This time, I’m afraid that no one can stop this Mo Yunfei,” Zhang Wenshan of the Zhang Clan said wistfully.
At this moment, a burly man stood up. He was Zhu Wuneng, the family head of the Zhu Clan. He stood up, he said loudly, “Let’s attack together and besiege him again. I don’t believe that so many Deva Realm experts of the righteous path aren’t a match for a Transcending Tribulation Realm like him!”
At this moment, another well-dressed middle-aged man opened his mouth. He was the head of the Wang Clan, Wang Wenxian…he shook his head and said, “There is an insurmountable gap between the cultivation realms. At the Transcending Tribulation Realm, I’m afraid that he has already resonated with heaven and earth. Even if we attack together, I’m afraid that it will be difficult to deal with him.”
The head of the Song Clan, Song Lin, stood up and bowed to Xiao Lie. He said, “City Lord, when we are no match for him, I’m afraid that City Lord will have to ask your Xiao Clan’s great-grandfather to come out of the mountain.”
“That’s right. Isn’t Old Master Xiao at the peak of the Transcending Tribulation Realm? If we ask him to come out, we will definitely be able to defeat Mo Yunfei,” Lin Chengyuan, the head of the Lin Clan, echoed.
Many people knew that the Xiao Clan had an old man at the Transcending Tribulation Realm. He was already at the peak of the Transcending Tribulation Realm and had lived for hundreds of years. However, he had never been able to get into the Transcending Tribulation Realm.
Therefore, the old master of the Xiao Clan did not care about worldly affairs. He only focused on the Dao. He wanted to break through the Transcending Tribulation Realm in one day and ascend to a new height.
If he invited the old master of the Xiao Clan, with his strength, he would definitely be able to defeat the Sect Master of the Black Devil Sect, Mo Yunfei.
At this moment, Xiao Lie smiled and said, “Everyone, don’t be anxious!”
“Actually, I already have a countermeasure for this matter,” Xiao Lie said with a smile.
“City Lord, do you have any countermeasures?” A Clan Master asked.
Xiao Lie smiled and said, “I wonder which Immortal Sect you dislike the most in this Sunset Cloud City?”
At this moment, Song Lin immediately stood up, he looked at Xiao Lie and said, “Of course it’s the Immortal Destiny Holy Land!”
“Humph, my Song Clan remembered our old friendship and asked Yu Xing to marry the remnant of the Xu Clan. However, I didn’t expect the remnant of the Xu Clan to be so unappreciative. Not only did he refuse to marry, but the Immortal Destiny Holy Land, the Saint Son Ye Gucheng, directly crippled one of my son’s arms!”
“That’s right. That bullsh*t Grandmaster of the Immortal Destiny Holy Land is too arrogant. He thought that he was invincible after breaking through to the Deva Realm. I asked my clan’s disciples to pay him a visit, but he didn’t like them. He even chased them all back!” Lin Chengyuan said sternly.
“Ever since a Grandmaster appeared in the Immortal Destiny Holy Land, they became more and more arrogant. Previously, they destroyed the Red Dust Holy Land and the Snow Eagle Sect. I believe that everyone has a connection with these two sects. But after being destroyed by the Immortal Destiny Holy Land, we also lost a lot of things,” Zhang Wenshan said coldly.
At this moment, a cold smile appeared on Xiao Lie’s face.
“Since everyone has an answer, why don’t we let the Immortal Destiny Holy Land take the lead this time!”
