Divine Cloud Immortal Palace
Divine Cloud Immortal Palace!
An extremely mysterious yet powerful and big sect. It was extremely low profile in Sky Martial Continent, and only appears in the records of other various sects and clans. It was said that the disciples of the Divine Cloud Immortal Palace never participated in any of Sky Martial Continent’s activities, including the Mountain River List and The meeting of Heroes. They rarely revealed their strength in front of others, thus, information on them were extremely scarce, and the Qin Creek people did not dare rank them. Thus, no one could estimate or confirm the Divine Cloud Immortal Palace’s strength.
Even though the Divine Cloud Immortal Palace was extremely secretive to others, and no one knew how profound they were, Su Yun was different, he knew and understood the Divine Cloud Immortal Palace.
However, he did not receive the information from Sky Martial Continent’s people, but from the beings of the Demonic Continent.
The reason was simple, one of the Demonic beings that did not want to live killed a disciple of the Divine Cloud Immortal Palace who was travelling, and sustained injuries in the Demonic Continent. It was said that three days after the disciple’s death, the clan of the Demonic being received a message from Divine Cloud Immortal Palace.
The message was clear cut, simply stating one request; for the Demonic clan’s clan elder to bring the head of the Demonic being who killed their disciple within three days to Divine Cloud Immortal Palace as an apology.
The Divine Cloud Immortal Palace was different from the rest of Sky Martial Continent. To them, they viewed even the Demonic beings as equal, thus, they did not despise them and maintained neutrality between all races.
But when the message was received, it immediately became a joke to the Demonic clan. Instead, it was even spread to the other Demonic clans, and everyone treated it as a joke.
However, three days later, the Divine Cloud Immortal Palace came.
Su Yun who was in the Devil Sect at that time did not know what happened, but when he received the news and became informed of it, within half an hour of time, it was said that the ten thousand strong Demonic clan were wiped out, regardless of how strong the Demonic being or how young they were, not one were spared, all of them were killed!
All the Demonic beings were shocked.
And it was also from that day on, that all the clans and powerhouses in the Demonic continent sent out an agreed order: Never provoke people of the Divine Cloud Immortal Palace.
“It is that unique ring, I am not mistaken.”
Su Yun thought, his eyes continued to look at all of their fingers.
Suddenly, a weird feeling flashed past his eyes for an instant.
It was the young lady with the two ponytails.
One of her hand was on the table, while the other hand was kept unseen at her chest area, and she was quietly revolving her Profound Spirit Force, towards her abdomen continuously.
Su Yun was startled.
If she is not wearing any treasures to conceal her cultivation, her strength is at least at the first or second stage of the Spirit Star Realm.
What kind of person could possibly harm such an existence? Who would dare provoke someone from the Divine Cloud Immortal Palace?
Su Yun thought quietly.
“Master Su Yun, master Su Yun?”
Just then, Liu Jie who was beside him called out quietly.
Su Yun was startled but regained his focus and looked at Liu Jie weirdly.
Liu Jie stood up, and then cupped her fists and bowed to Su Yun: “Master Su Yun, Liu Jie has already been delayed inside Black Prison Forest, and still have matters at hand, and thus will not accompany you further. If fate allows in the future, I welcome Master Su Yun to grace my Liu family. Our Liu Family eagerly awaits you, and welcomes master to come anytime!”
“I hope to be able to go, but if I do, I may only bring trouble to your family.”
“How will that happen?” Liu Jie laughed then cupped her fists again: “I will see you again.”
“I won’t send you off!”
With that, Liu Jie left alone.
Seeing Liu Jie’s figure becoming smaller, Su Yun laughed bitterly, she did not receive information from Qin Creek, if not she would not had said that.
With a relationship with an Evil being, how can the Liu Family continue to stand in Sky Martial Continent? Su Yun also believed that Liu Jie would very soon hope that he will not appear at her home.
Just then, the few ladies in their white and red clothes all stood up, they rushed down the steps with anxious looks, and quickly left the teahouse, leaving Persevering Pine City in a hurry.
Seeing that, Su Yun immediately stood up, left a few spirit coins on the table, and spoke to Qing’er: “Qing’er, quickly follow me!”
“Ah? Where are we going young master?”
“Just follow me.”
With that said, Su Yun ran out of the teahouse.
Qing’er had perspiration trickling down her head, but she followed suit.
Out of Persevering Pine City, the ladies in white and red all instigated their Profound Spirit Qi and left the city, seeing their ugly expressions, it seemed as though they were trying to avoid something, or someone.
Their speed increased to their maximum.
Ssssi sssi ssssi ssssi
Just then, a tinge of poisonous scent diffused outwards, coming from the direction of the city.
The Profound Spirit Qi was very strong, and from Su Yun’s initial judgement, it seemed to be a third stage Spirit Star Realm cultivator.
Since when did third stage Spirit Star Realm experts become so common? In less than a month’s time, I have met with five Spirit Star Realm experts.
Su Yun swallowed his saliva, pulling Qing’er to hide at one side, and concealing their Qi, they carefully followed along.
The ladies had not even left far when the owner of the Profound Spirit Qi caught up.
There were a total of seven people, although the seven were mostly Spirit Soul Realm cultivators, their leader was a third stage Spirit Star cultivator.
He was a white haired old man, wielding a golden snake cane, he had a frail figure but his eyes were malicious. Dressed in a golden robe with a snake insignia imprint, he looked to be out of the ordinary.
The Castle Lord of Gold Snake castle?
Su Yun saw the snake cane, and was secretly shocked.
No wonder he would be a third stage Spirit Star cultivator, although the Gold Snake Castle is not a huge powerhouse, nonetheless, all the different castle lords all wielded their own strengths.
At one side, the ladies in red and white were huddled together, their backs against each other, they had brandished out their weapons and cautiously looked around their surroundings.
What was surprising was that their weapons were not blades, swords, spears or rods, but many magnificent and gorgeous looking colorful thin silk.
Qing’er looked at the beautiful silk in a daze, her delicate small mouth involuntarily letting out a compliment.
“You demonic women! You killed my son and you still want to run? Humph, today, if you do not pay for my son’s life, do not even think about leaving!”
The Castle Lord of Gold Snake Castle tightened his grip on his Snake Cane, and his sinister voice shouted fiercely at the ladies.
“Your Son oppressed the people, acted tyrannically, and have caused the lives of countless of innocent people to me come miserable! Not only that, just because he wanted to try and snatch the Zhang’s family maiden as wife, he had even killed the entire Zhang Family, how can we not kill such a person? You are not any better! Your son is out there doing misdeeds, and you definitely have the knowledge of it, yet you close one eye and let him do as he pleases! Your son has harmed so many people, you are unable to escape the blame as well!”
Just then, the young lady with the two ponytails said sternly, her face was filled with anger, as she berated the Castle Lord of Gold Snake Castle.
“That’s right! This time your son actually wanted to do something to our senior apprentice sister, how could we let him off!” One of the junior apprentice sister added.
“You!” The face of Gold Snake Castle’s Lord changed, his hand holding the golden snake cane was trembling: “You dare to teach this old man? Good! Good! GOOD! You stinking little dolls! You think you can truly live past today? FIne! Let this Old Man wipe all of you out, as a tribute for my son’s life!”
“You dare? We are from Divine Cloud Immortal Palace, and our Master is about to reach here, if you dare even touch us! Our Master will eradicate your Gold Snake Castle!”
“What Divine Cloud Immortal Palace? This old man had never heard of it before! This old man only knows that you have to pay for taking my son’s life! Humph, it seems that you all are quite a beauty! When I send you to your death, remember to service my son well!” With that, the Gold Snake Castle’s Lord raised his snake cane, and pointed at the group of ladies: “Kill all of them, not one shall survive!”
The group of people rushed forward.
“Protect Senior apprentice sister!”
The disciples of Divine Cloud Immortal Palace all danced with their colorful silk, releasing dazzling mystical techniques and struck outwards.
The myriad of attacks were magical! Sometimes they would produce wind, sometimes fire, sometimes ice, sometimes lightning, it dazzled everyone, it truly was a feast for the eyes.
However, the group of people that the Gold Snake Castle Lord had brought were obviously experts. Facing the disciples of the Divine Cloud Immortal Sect, they were not a single bit inferior…
Just then, the Gold Snake Castle Lord took action. He arched his body and leapt out directly towards the lady with the two ponytails, smashing his snake cane towards her head.
“Despicable! All of your God Snake Castle’s people are nothing good! I will aid the heavens for justice, and destroy all of you!”
The lady with the two ponytails delicate and agile body swerved, then released a colorful light, causing a large amount of mist to dissipate, making her to look like a fairy from a dream.
“Little Doll, you speak big words!”
The Gold Snake Castle Lord’s expression turned gloomy as he immediately retreated. The mist was thick, and he could not locate the opponent. However, he was not afraid and suddenly hit the ground with his cane. The gold snake cane suddenly moved by itself and soared into the air, transforming into a large snake over 10m big, and directly pounced towards the dense mist.
In a moment, the gold light pierced through the dense mist, instigating a large amount of Profound Spirit Qi.
A wail came out from the dense mist.
Following that, the mist dissipated, revealing the lady with two ponytails as she fell to the ground, blood dripping out from the corner of her mouth, she looked to be in a miserable state.
The silk in her hand was tangled by the gold snake, and was actually actually disintegrating. Without any treasure, she could not utilize many of her mystical techniques, and for a cultivator, that was a huge drop in fighting power.
“Senior Apprentice Sister!”
Seeing that, all the other disciples of the Divine Cloud Immortal Palace exclaimed out in panic, a few of them were distracted, and were struck and injured.
The situation was terrible.
But to Su Yun who was hiding, it was an extremely good opportunity.
“Qing’er, do you want to join the Divine Cloud Immortal sect?”
He turned around and asked Qing’er.
Qing’er had immediately refused him and shook her head the moment he said that without hesitation.
Su Yun: “….”.
He understood why Qing’er had rejected that thought so straightforwardly.
But, at the present it was an extremely god sent opportunity, if they missed it, there would be no second chances.
Su Yun took a deep breath and turned, then looked at Qing’er earnestly.
“Qing’er, did you know? Before we found the array formation point inside Black Prison Forest, I actually thought to bring you away to live in seclusion and not care about the world matters anymore. But at the moment, it is difficult.”
“Why do you say that?”
“Because profound Sky Sect is much stronger and larger than I had ever imagined!” Su Yun laughed bitterly: “Like this time, the people who were chasing me were actually all existences above the Spirit Star Realm, do you know what the Spirit Star Realm represents? Any cultivator able to attain the Spirit Star Realm can wield the position of Lord in any power. Regardless of location, they can be an overlord anywhere, respected by thousands of people, but to the Profound Sky Sect, they are just extremely ordinary existences, isn’t that extremely powerful? Furthermore, their plan, that involves the entire continent is not something we can imagine. So, Qing’er, if we want to live well, we need to resolve the threat that the Profound Sky Sect poses to us, but at the moment, we are not able to fight against them, so the only way for us is to find a powerful sect much stronger than the Profound Sky Sect and use it as our backer.”
“A powerful sect much stronger than Profound Sky Sect?” Qing’er’s eyes grew big, and her mouth opened: “Are there still such sects in Sky Martial Continent?”
“There is! The Sky Martial Continent is enormous with plenty of crouching tigers and hidden dragons! Our view of the world is too small, and there are many things we do not know about! In front of us, this Divine Cloud Immortal Sect can be said to be a powerful sect that is not inferior to the Profound Sky Sect! Therefore, Qing’er, I wish for you to join them, and once you are a disciple, the Profound Sky Sect would dare not do anything to you, as long as you are fine, then I will be fine as well!” Su Yun said in a serious tone.
“Young master will not be joining?”
“I heard that divine Cloud Immortal Palace only accepts female disciples.”
“….” Qing’er’s eyes were downcast, her expression became gloomy: “Must it be like this? Do we truly have to separate yet again?”
“Qing’er, we are left with no choice.” Su Yun laughed bitterly: “Furthermore, I still need to look for the Heaven Lord and revive Sword Elder. We are unable to hide ourselves for the time being, and with our current strength, it is difficult for us to go against the Profound Sky Sext. And if those existences from Black Prison Forest were to appear again, we will not even have the chance to escape anymore.”
Qing’er bit her lips but did not say anything.
But then, Qing’er suddenly thought about something, she raised her head and looked at Su Yu: “Young master, is this Divine Cloud Immortal Palace really very powerful?”
“They are very powerful!” Su Yun nodded his head: “Maybe, they have existences that are even more powerful than the Spirit Star Realm.”
“What??” Qing’er was dazed, but she quickly regained her senses and spoke softly: “Young master, if we have such power, maybe we don’t need to hide everywhere and keep concealing ourselves? Maybe not so many people will come and try to kill us anymore?”
“What?” Qing’er spoke too softly, and Su Yun did not catch her words
“Nothing.” Qing’er’s eyes flashed a look of disappointment, but displayed a smile: “Young master, if this is what you want, Qing’er will do it, I am willing to enter this Divine Cloud Immortal Palace… But such a sect, how can I just enter if I said I wanted to?”
“You don’t have to worry about it.” Su Yun said and smile: “Isn’t this a great opportunity?”
