Returning to the Su Family
Under the gradually setting sun, two Purple Horned Beasts sprinted across the mountain ridges.
There were countless boulders all around them, and although the Purple Horned Beasts were huge in size, they were extremely agile, so they were still able to run even on the rocky mountainous roads.
“So, all of these happened five days ago?”
Su Yun who was draped in his black cloak, had a cold expression as he asked Xing Yang who was rushing beside him.
“Yes, big brother. Su Gou is still in Blossom Heart Valley, if not for some of Blossom Heart Valley’s disciples accidentally stumbling on some of your traces, I am afraid we would not have found you that easily. Big brother, what do we do now? Are you prepared to save the people from the Su Family?”
Xing Yang asked.
“Save? Honestly, I do not know if I should, because I do not know why, when everything is going well. The Profound Sky Sect would attack the Su Family, just for revenge? Or could it be that since the Su Family is no longer useful, they decided that there was no reason to let the Su Family live any longer? Or maybe, them doing this is to lure me out? I do not know anything.”
Su Yun said in a grave voice.
“Sounds complicated. Since it is so, big brother, you should just not go.” Xing Yang thought and said.
Su Yun did not reply.
Su Gou said that Su Li Xiang knows something about his parents. ‘What could he possibly know? Isn’t dad and mum dead? Could there be something else that had been concealed? In addition, I don’t even have any confrontations with the Profound Sky Sect now, and Su Li Xiang had worked with the Profound Sky Sect before. If this time, Su Li Xiong and the Profound Sky Sect are not acting together, does that mean that maybe, Su Li Xiong can become the breakthrough for me to defeat the Profound Sky Sect?
No matter what, it would be better for me to see it for myself.’
Thinking about that, Su Yun increased his speed.
A few days later.
Su Yun who was on the Purple Horned Beast rushed into Blossom Heart Valley, where Pill King and the rest were already waiting at the entrance for him.
Su Yun dared not reveal his identity and used his identity as grandmaster Gui Mo Jue’s good friend “Liu Ye” instead.
He quickly entered Blossom Heart Valley with his disguise, and chatted with the people for a bit.
But the most pressing moment was to handle the Su Family matter.
Inside Blossom Heart Valley’s big hall.
“Where’s Su Gou?”
Su Yun who was in his black cape and hat walked in and shouted, and then took off the hat, revealing his pale white face and stared at the people who were kneeling in the center.
“W-who are you?”
Su Gou raised his head and looked at the young man with a pale face that seemed to be lacking of blood, and his pitch black bewitching eyes.
The young man looked at Su Gou indifferently and spoke calmly.
But the two simple words were like a lightning bolt striking down on Su Gou, causing his entire body to tremble and his eyes to shrink, he immediately dropped to the ground again and kowtowed again and again.
“Young Master Su Yun! I have longed to see you! Quickly save the Su Family, save the Su Family!”
Su Yun’s expression turned cold, and a chill swept past his eyes: “At that time when I was being chased after by the Su Family and was forced to a corner without retreat, did anyone from the family save me? Qing’er was almost forced to death by the family, yet who came to help? Now that the Su Family is in need of help, why should I help them? For what reason should I help them?”
Hearing that, Su Gou’s face turned pale. He lowered his head and muttered: “Despite this, Young Master, regardless of everything, the Su family is still your family. You are still a part of it, and the blood in your veins belongs to the Su family. Even if there were people in the family who wanted to hurt you, there were also people who treated you well right? Or could it be that in your eyes, you think that everyone in the Su Family should die?”
When those words were said, Su Yun revealed a strange hesitation.
After a moment.
“You are right.” Su Yun raised his head and stared at Su Gou: “Although countless of people harbored ill intentions against me, there are truly good people who treated me well in the family. Maybe it will not be for the monk, but for the Buddha. Likewise, me helping will not be for Su Li Xiong, but for those people.”
(TN: 不看僧面看佛面, comes from journey to the west, which basically means to view the thing positively in spite of the negative)
With that said, he stood and said indifferently: “Prepare a Purple Horned Beast for me please, Master Gui.”
“You’re really prepared to go? Master Su Yun!”
“Yes!” Su Yun nodded.
“Alright!” Gui Mo Jue looked at the disciple behind him, and said: “In the period of time when Xing Yang went to look for you, Blossom Heart Valley had already sent a small team to aid the Su Family. Maybe we can suppress and support for a few days. Master Su Yun, you will be rushing to save them, but please be careful. The Profound Sky Sect is no ordinary sect, they have many experts, do not drop your guard!”
“Rest easy Master Gui, I will watch out for my safety.”
Su Yun nodded his head and turned to leave.
“Big brother, let us go with you!”
Before Su Yun could leave, he saw Xin Yue and Xing Yang rushing over in front of him, and said with serious faces.
Su Yun was startled, but when he realised that the Profound Spirit Qi was much stronger than the past, holding the strength of the Spirit Soul Realm, he thought for a bit, then nodded: “Alright, you guys will follow me, but be defensive, and don’t think of doing anything noteworthy!”
The two siblings replied joyously.
With the siblings, Su Yun rejected Gui Mo Jue’s offer to have experts from Blossom Heart Valley accompanying them, and thus, the three of them sprinted towards Martial bone mountain.
Su Yun did not know what had occurred between Profound Sky Sect and the Su Family. If it was a trap, wouldn’t he have implicated the Blossom Heart Valley disciples?
Su Yun was able to treat everything in the world ruthlessly, but towards people who cared for him, and people that he cared for, he was unable to be ruthless. Instead, he would give it his all to protect them. Save the Su Family? Maybe that was not what he was doing, he could just be saving the people he cared about, but of course, the main point was still Su Li Xiong!
Blossom Heart Valley is located at the side of the Jue Lian Region, so their journey to Martial Bone Mountain was just a few days.
On the road, Xin Yue took out a jade white order badge that emitted light aura, and carefully activated a small array formation concealed in it. In the next moment, the order badge lit up as though it had stars in it, and voices floated out from them.
“This is something master Gui Mo Jue had given me, he said that this order badge can connect to the disciples that had already rushed ahead to support the Su Family.”
Xin Yue explained and added a few more words, but then they suddenly heard screaming from the lit up order badge. Although it was screaming, the voice was not loud.
“Up ahead, the leader of the support team, Huang Gui Shan had sent a message. The Profound Sky Sect had started to sweep and clear the mountain. They are currently sweeping by covering the entire Martial Bone Mountain, the Su Family and Blossom Heart Valley support team are retreating towards the rear mountains, but a majority of the exits have been sealed, and they can only escape through the rear!”
“Because everyone is in a panic to escape, many did not prepare antidotes and died from poisoning, the death toll is quite high and is still increasing.”
“Huang Gui Shan also said he cannot guarantee that he can bring the Su Family to the rear mountains efficiently, and according to the development of the situation, there is a possibility that the Su Family will be caught and killed before they reach the rear exit. He hopes for us to arrive soon, stop the Profound Sky Sect’s people from killing, and save as many as we can.”
“Help me ask him if Su Li Xiong is with them?”
Su Yun asked.
Xin Yue nodded and immediately spoke to the order badge. Then she raised her head: “Big brother, Huang Gui Shan said that Su Li Xiong is there, but he had lost an arm and is severely injured.”
Su Yun’s eyes widened and he asked again: “Huang Gui Shan really saw that?”
Su Yun frowned, he secretly clenched his teeth as he said: “We will move faster, first to Martial Bone Mountain!”
The three of them sprinted while directly using Profound Spirit Qi, increasing the mass of the Purple Horned Beast while making themselves lighter, causing their mounts to sprint even faster.
Cutting short by almost half a day of time, the three of them managed to reach the outskirts of Martial Bone Mountain.
They were at the rear area that led to the main road, ahead of them was the Su Family territory which Su Yun had used to escape back then as well.
It was extremely quiet, other than the wind blowing and the rustling of trees and grass, there were no other sounds, maybe the situation had not reached their location.
Su Yun dropped from his Purple Horned Beast, took out the Immortal Mystical Scarlet Blood Sword, and directly rushed in using the small path, with the siblings following tightly behind.
“We should not be far from Su Li Xiong and the rest. We will kill our way through directly!”
The two of them complied.
Then, before the three of them could advance further, a set of extremely fast jet of speed sound came out, and then a large group of cultivators dressed in blue collided with the three of them.
“There are three people here!”
“Their order badge are from Blossom Heart Valley!”
“My master had ordered, if Blossom Heart Valley insists on intruding, they are seeking their own death. Upon encountering them, we must kill them without mercy! Everyone go up and kill those bastards that do not know their place!”
Just after the roar, various mystical techniques rushed towards them.
Su Yun did not do anything, because the siblings beside him had already taken actions.
They were not using the weapons they were trained in the past, but were using needles, and their Profound Spirit Qi had changed into Spirit Life Qi.
Xin Yue was like a graceful butterfly, sweeping through the crowd and adeptly using her delicate hands to lightly touch her opponents, where a strange flickering light would appear at her fingertips. It looked to be extremely intoxicating.
Xing Yang took a different approach, he was not beautiful. Allowing a brute like him to use needles was definitely difficult, but what was surprising, was that when he used his needles, he had his own personality and uniqueness to it. He was extremely accurate and tyrannical, his enemies could clearly sense where he planned to use his needles on, but they were struck apart by his Profound Spirit Qi. Following that, the needles would pierce in. Imbued with Profound Spirit Force, the needles directly broke into the enemy’s body, stopping their Qi and paralyzingly their bodies.
It was truly a domination!
Su Yun sucked in cold air.
From what it seems, the two of them had learnt a few skills in Blossom Heart Valley.
The majority of their enemies were first stage Spirit Soul cultivators, while the siblings were fourth stage Spirit Soul cultivators, so handling them was effortless. After sweeping through with the needles, the poison would come into play and all of them would fall onto the ground, fainted.
Are they truly Blossom Heart Valley people… Su Yun thought, he figured that the siblings would truly poison people to death.
But dead or not, it was not a problem, Su Yun only had eyes on Su Li Xiong.
He growled, wielding his blood red sword, he sprinted on.
On route, the siblings cleared the path, saving Su Yun a lot of time and energy.
They quickly approached the location that Huang Gui Shan had informed them.
Gradually, the sounds of explosions could be heard, shouting, screaming and crying could be heard. More and more chaos appeared in their eyes, and the number of corpses increased as they walked ahead.
The air was coated with a strong smell of blood, causing people to want to gag.
“They are just ahead!”
Xin Yue shouted.
With one step, Su Yun sped ahead and landed on the slope below, yet behind the large group of Profound Sky Sect people. In front of the Profound Sky Sect people were groups of different aged people. There were around 80 children, amongst them, there were many healthy males of the Su Family all dead on the ground, while the remaining men all wielded their blades, looking anxiously at the Profound Sky Sect people in front of them.
Bodies and blood covered the ground, with flesh of meat and bones scattered all over like beans on a plate.
If it was truly an act to trap me, the price paid is truly too devastating.
Su Yun’s eyes grew wide as he looked at the scene ahead of him.
Suddenly, a few familiar figures appeared in his vision.
Su Gou was right, there are people in the Su family that I hate, but there are people that I like as well, and I cannot forget their kindness. I am ultimately still from the Su family, how can I give them up so easily?
“Who? Who are you people?”
The leader of the group of Profound Sky Sect people standing at the front noticed the three of them rushing from behind and shouted.
Su Yun instantly swept through the crowd and headed towards a child’s corpse and propped him up.
The corpse was still warm, but the child was void of life with a large hole in his chest, as though he was pierced through by a spear.
This child was not even a spirit cultivator, his body did not even have an ounce of Profound Spirit Qi!
“Who did this?”
Su Yun placed the child on the ground, his pitch black eyes sweeping across the Profound Sky Sect people coldly, and roared in a low voice.
Killing intent gushed out from his body, with strands of ice cold Evil Qi.
