Secrets of The Past
Inside a quiet mountain stream, two people stood quietly in front of a dying person.
The stench of blood pervaded the air, and the atmosphere became more and more weird.
The dying person’s body was already dyed red with blood as his lower abdomen continued to bleed.
“How did my parents truly die? Weren’t they killed by powerful wild beasts?”
Su Yun’s eyes turned red as he roared, his roar becoming more and more like a beast himself.
Hearing that, Su Li Xiong coughed a few times and laughed weakly: “Of course not, died to beasts? Hehe, Su Yun, do you know? The strongest in the Su Family was not me, and of course, it wasn’t your father either, but your mother! Shen Xue Xue! If we were to consider the people married into the family, the strongest in the Su Family is actually your mother! Maybe your father’s strength was not high enough, but your mother Shen Xue Xue was definitely not a normal spirit cultivator. From what I know, she was at least of the Spirit Star Realm, so how can such an existence die to some beast?”
Su Yun’s eyes grew wide.
“I do not know what direction they went for after leaving the Su Family, but I do know, after observing and listening to the conversations of their people, is that the reason for them leaving, is because they found information regarding someone! And they were anxiously looking for her!”
“Who was it!”
“Your younger sister!”
Su Li Xiong spoke those words out straightforwardly.
And yet those few words struck Su Yun’s heart like lightning, causing his mind to go blank.
Su Yun stood there in a daze as though he had become a statue, stunned in place.
“Big brother, are you alright? Big brother!” Xin Yue immediately shook Su Yun.
After a long while.
Su Yun spoke dryly, he patted Xin Yue’s hand, and then turned and stared at Su Li Xiong.
“Since it is so, where are my parents now?”
“I am not sure, but according to my sources, the carriage that your parents were travelling in were destroyed. All traces of them were gone, and only unrecognizable corpses were left along with marks left behind by beasts. That was why other people said that your parents were killed by beasts.”
“By saying that my parents disappeared without a trace, you mean that there is a possibility that my parents are not dead?” Su Yun suddenly had that thought, his face changing emotions and a joy sweeping past his heart.
“I do not know about this, but if you want to find your parents, you can go to a place to look for help.”
“Your mother’s birthplace, which is also your maternal grandmother’s home” Su Li Xiong voice was now as weak as a mosquito: “Outer World Immortal Island.”
“Outer World Immortal Island? T-that is an absolute forbidden ground outside of Sky Martial Continent! I heard that even Spirit Star Realm cultivators who enter the Immortal island are forever gone, and you’re saying that my mother is someone from that island?”
Su Yun’s eyes were extremely wide and round, his face was completely filled with shock!
“You’ve actually heard of the Outer World Immortal Island before?” Su Li Xiong was surprised as well: “There are very few people on Sky Martial Continent that has heard of such a forbidden ground. Hehe, Su Yun, so It turns out that I’ve always been wrong about you. What trash, what cripple, you’re not any of those. In the end you’ve been concealing yourself for so many years, truly out of my expectations!”
To even understand spirit medicine, and to be so knowledgeable, even his cultivation is so outstanding, how can he be considered a good for nothing trash?
However, Su Yun did not care about Su Li Xiong’s thoughts.
The Outer World Immortal Island was a standalone island outside of Sky Martial Continent, but it did not belong to Sky martial Continent. It was said that immortals lived there and no one of Sky Martial Continent had ever taken half a step onto the land, regardless of who it was, even if he was a Spirit Star cultivator. It was said that no one could find the island, which was hidden in the ocean. Of course, anyone who had managed to locate and arrive the island, never came back.
“The reason why your mother was able to have such a powerful cultivation is also because of her origins from the Immortal Island, but all these information were merely what I’ve gathered. I dare not confirm that your mother came from there. Your mother had married into the Su Family for so many years, yet no one from the Outer World Immortal Island came, so I think that your mother was more likely to be expelled from the Immortal island. That was the reason I dared to act against you! But now, whether it is the Profound Sky Sect or the Outer World Immortal Island, it doesn’t matter anymore.”
Su Li Xiong laughed weakly: “I am now in this state, so I do not need to care about the anger and grievances they have.”
Su Yun remained silent.
At the moment, his state of mind was in a mess. The information he had received was too out of the world, it was information that was unable to be processed.
Maybe my parents are not dead yet.
My mother is a powerful cultivator.
And I even have a younger sister!
Why is it that all of a sudden, I have so many close ties?
Su Yun was happy and lost at the same time while feeling melancholic and pained.
“Big brother.” Xin Yue gently called for him, her expression was complicated.
“Su Yun, from the start, the Profound Sky Sect never planned to let Qing’er go. Even with the annihilation of the Su Family, they will still dispatch a large number of experts to find and seize her. It doesn’t matter if Blossom Heart Valley shelters all of you or not, they are unable to fight against the Profound Sky Sect! You can continue to stay in Blossom Heart Valley, but you will implicate them. However, If you do not stay in Blossom Heart Valley, the chances of all of you being destroyed is very high!!!”
Just then, Su Li Xiong spoke again.
“Oh? Then what do you think I should do?” Su Yun raised his head and stared at Su Li Xiong and asked.
“Very simple.” Su Li Xiong laughed, his muddied blurred eyes flashing a stern look: “Kill the patriarch of Profound Sky Sect!!”
“Their patriarch?” Su Yun frowned: “What cultivation does he has?”
Seeing that Su Yun did not reveal any expression of shock, Su Li Xiong’s heart tensed up, but quickly calmed down again. He laughed: “You don’t seem to be surprised, why? Don’t tell me you always had that thought?”
“Of course.” Su Yun said as a matter of factly.
Su Li Xiong’s weak eyes grew round, then squinted: “I have truly looked down on you again and again. With the matters as of now, I have nothing to beg of you. I do not know what cultivation realm the patriarch of Profound Sky Sect has reach, but Su Yun, take this!”
Su Li Xiong ripped off a black object from his neck and threw it over.
Su Yun accepted it and looked at the weighted locket: “What’s this?”
“This locket is a signaling device. With it, you can communicate and control the Su Family’s one and only intelligence unit ‘Phantom unit’. The Profound Sky Sect had taken action against our Su family, how could I not have done anything? The phantom unit has already infiltrated the Profound Sky Sect, allowing me to gain information and reports on the Profound Sky Sect. They are able to observe their every movement. Su Yun, take it, one day, when you want to defeat the Profound Sky Sect, they will appear.”
Su Yun took the locket, his eyes showing excitement. He had never expected that Su Li Xiong would actually have such a trump card. Su Li Xiong who was able to lead a team to infiltrate the Profound Sky Sect was definitely worth being a patriarch, he had his own means.
“Su Yun, maybe the hatred between us is huge, but I am already dying. I hope you understand the agenda behind the hatred, and that the Su Family should not be annihilated. The Future of the Su Family will be in your hands. How the Profound Sky Sect had treated our Su Family, how could we endure that? I, Su Li Xiong, was incapable, and could not take revenge, but you, Su Yun, you can! Maybe you may be taking revenge for yourself, but that itself is enough! Take the locket and quickly leave, go!”
Su Li Xiong’s voice was getting softer and softer, his hand was also becoming weaker, his lower abdomen had stopped bleeding, he was already dried up, and even if the Pill King was around, it would be hard to resuscitate him.
Seeing that Su Li Xiong was slowly closing his eyes, Su Yun took a deep breath and stood up.
“Big brother, we are leaving him behind?” Xin Yue was startled.
“Ignore him, let’s go.”
Su Yun said with indifference and lowered his sword. With Xin Yue, they both stepped onto the sword blade and soared into the air.
Su Li Xiong laid quietly in the mountain stream, breathing quietly and slowly, until his last breath.
Not long after.
A few figures fiercely smashed into the ground beside Su Li Xiong’s corpse.
A total of four people, their Profound Spirit Qi indicated that they were all around the first stage Spirit Star Realm, other than the new inclusion of Liu Xin Hai, the rest were He Ben, Long Zhuang Shan and Jia Sha Zi.
He Ben looked at Su Li Xiong and walked over to inspect his body.
“He just died not long ago!”
“What about the rest?” Jia Sha Zi asked.
“From the remnants of Qi, it seems like they are quickly escaping towards the borders of Jue Lian Region.”
“They run really quickly.” Liu Xin Hai commented, then turned and stared at the person at the back, Jia Sha Zi, and then said: “Let’s give chase and kill all of them! And bring Su Yun back!”
“We need to capture Su Yun, since we can only find Qing’er through him. We can kill the rest!” Long Zhuang Sha said with a hoarse voice.
Jia Sha Zi never spoke the entire time, a look of complication flashed past his eyes and his fists clenched tightly.
“What? Jia Sha Zi, why’re you not speaking? Heh, are you not willing to?” Liu Xin Hai saw how Jia Sha Zi was acting, and immediately mocked him. Smiling with his bony face, his skinny and withered sinister smile was extremely sinister and eerie.
“No.” Jia Sha Zi said softly and turned his gaze and looked at Liu Xin Hai coldly: “Furthermore, what is the meaning of your tone? Are you provoking me?”
“Of course not, Jia Sha Zi, you are stronger than me by a stage. How would I ever dare to provoke you. I just merely want to remind you not to forget our task here!”
Liu Xin Hai laughed, then turned and leaped up, heading towards the distance.
Seeing that, the rest immediately followed along. Jia Sha Zi secretly sighed, and helpless followed along.
But, just as Liu Xin Hai was soaring outwards, a black light shot out from the forest below and instantly struck into his body.
Liu Xin Hai was immediately flung into the air and smashed into the ground, a hole formed in his chest with Evil Qi gargling out, he coughed a few times, spitting out blood from his mouth.
The three people behind immediately stopped.
“Who is it!”
Liu Xin Hai wiped the blood off the corner of his mouth and roared.
“The person you’re looking for!”
A black figure walked out from the forest.
He held onto a blood red sword and walked slowly, with a pair of evil and cold looking eyes, he swept across the four.
It was Su Yun!
If we continue to run, where can we go to? Blossom Heart Valley, since this is the case, I will just implicate them.
Instead of that, why not halfway on the road, I get rid of all of those that were chasing after us.
A sinister look flashed past Su Yun’s eyes, his mouth curved into a cold smile. He rushed forward, straight towards Liu Xin Hai!
