Daggers Hidden Behind His Smiles
“Of course, it’s what I’ve been wanting to do for a long time!”
Jie Xue laughed coldly, he moved his arm, and the dagger pounced towards Zhong’s heart like a venomous snake. The Spirit Qi spiralling at the edge of the blade was activated, and flashed into Zhong’s entire body. Wherever it passed, everything would be destroyed, and in a breath of time, Zhong’s entire body was split into pieces and countless places were still being shredded by the Profound Spirit Qi, it was terrifying and ruthless!
Zhong was dead!
Guan Zi Hu was stunned.
Xu Yu Lang was also stunned.
Su Yun was even more shocked, his mind was turned blank. He had thought of all sorts of scenarios, but he had never expected such an event.
Puchi! Puchi! Puchi
Seven heads fell to the ground.
The seven disciples that protected Zhou were all murdered. Being surrounded by the ten elite disciples, along with their severe injuries after the bitter battle, how could they fight against these ten? They were quickly killed and settled.
Seeing the corpses still bleeding, Guan Zi Hu regained his senses and asked: “Master Jie Xue, why did you do this?”
“Why? Isn’t it obvious?”
Jie Xue walked over and picked up Zhong’s sect elite badge and chuckled: “Zhong brought the sect disciples and fought a huge battle against the Skeleton King Demon. He obtained the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon, but in doing so, it birthed a desire to keep the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon for himself, thus, he slaughtered the sect disciples, destroyed the elite sect badge, and escaped with the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon! His current whereabouts… Unknown! You don’t know that?”
With that said, Jie Xue tightened his hand, and Zhong’s sect elite badge crumbled to pieces!
Guan Zi Hu was not an idiot, he immediately knew what Jie Xue meant.
Jie Xue planned to keep the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon, then place the blame onto Zhong!
“Go, get rid of all the other disciples!”
Jie Xue turned and ordered the ten elite disciples.
The ten disciples nodded and quickly swept the ground.
Very quickly, wails and cries came out from all directions.
The massacre had started.
“Master Jie Xue, don’t tell me that you plan to keep the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon for yourself?” Guan Zi Hu looked at Jie Xue.
“Keep for myself? No no no! Of course not, this treasure is not something I can keep alone. Master Guan, I did this with hopes that we can make this treasure ours! Now that Zhong is dead, the disciples who participated in the battle are dead, nobody would have any clarity about the matter, so no one knows where the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon is, no?”
Xie Jue laughed and said.
“But, there is only one Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon and there are four of us, how should we split it?” Guan Zi Hu’s face turned slightly pale.
“Four of us? Of course not, we just have to get rid of the two of them, Master Guan, the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon is useless in my hands. Only people like you is fit to use it. Now, I have helped you obtain this treasure, you just have to promise me one thing, and that is when I am in trouble, you must use your Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon to help me, how does that sound?”
“Y-you want to give the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon to me?”
Guan Zi Hu was stunned, but his eyes surfaced a look of excitement.
“Of course.” Jie Xue laughed: “I heard that you have a treasure that can conceal the Spirit Qi of treasures, the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon’s treasure grade is too high, If I keep it on me, people will definitely find out about it, only you can keep it, so if I do not hand over this Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon to you, who should I give it to?”
“That’s right, b-but, what if you regret it?” Guan Zi Hu was already moved, with only a slight hesitation as he asked.
“Regret? Why should I have any regret? You hold the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon, how will I dare to fight with you?” Jie Xue’s mouth formed an arc.
“No! Master Guan, don’t believe him! He is using you!!! Jie Xue is a cunning man with daggers hidden behind his smiles, no one knows what he truly wants, you cannot trust him!” Xu Yu Lang could no longer hold back and anxiously shouted.
However, his words were unable to pull Guan Zi Hu back from his greed.
“Time is running out, Zhong’s order badge is already destroyed, the sect will know something had happened, if you do not take action now, it’ll be too late!”
Jie Xue’s expression turned sinister as he stared at Xu Yu Lang. He pounced towards him with his hand turning into a claw with Spirit Qi, he fiercely dashed his way forward.
“Jie Xue, seems like you’re not planning to let us go!”
Xu Yu Lang’s reaction was not weak. When Jie Xue took action, he also made his move, raising both palms, his ten fingers extending out ten blood red bone blades that resemble talons.
Jie Xue’s attack was blocked, the talons were sturdy, proving that Xu Yu Lang’s strength was not weak.
“Oh, you have some strength!” Jie Xue laughed.
“Although I was just recently promoted to the sect elite ranking, rising by 45 ranks straight is not just for fun, Jie Xue, you looking down on me is your own fault!”
Xu Yu Lang roared, and used his other hand thrust towards Jie Xue’s heart.
Xu Yu Lang was a quiet and calm person, but when a battle erupted, he would transform into a crazy man, regardless of how strong his opponent was, he would not be afraid.
Then, when Xu Yu Lang was about to attack again, a fiery steel fist suddenly came up from beside him.
Xu Yu Lang’s eyes widened.
The steel fist smashed into his chest, the blazing flames bore into his body like worms, combusting the Spirit Essences, veins and arteries in his body.
Puchi! Xu Yu Lang spat blood out, his entire being flown out and smashed fiercely into the ground, and started to spasm on the ground.
Su Yun looked at Xu Yu Lang’s face and became suspicious.
Xu Yu Lang’s skin became extremely red, his body twitching frantically with his chest sunken in, he had already lost half of his fighting power.
Xu Yu Lang still stood up, but Jie Xue had already rushed forward, and trampled down onto his shoulder blades.
Xu Yu Lang screamed out loud.
He raised his blood red eyes, and looked at Guan Zi Hu.
“Master Guan! You and I joined the sect together and have worked together for so many years, I never thought, I never thought that you would actually betray me just for this Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon!!! You despicable lowly human, you deserve to die! You deserve to die!!! AHHHH!!!”
Xu Yu Lang released a wail, his eyes brimming with hatred.
“You don’t have to make me angry, Master Xu, I have no choice but to. Such a good treasure is right in front of me, If you want me to let it slip away, I cannot do that, So I have to wrong you!”
Guan Zi Hu said indifferently, and then he walked towards Xu Yu Lang.
He did not hesitate, or give mercy, the killing intent in his eyes were extremely thick, he did not care about the relation between them.
Xu Yu Lang stared intently at Guan Zi Hu, his eyes filled with anguish and pain.
A clear sound came out.
Then, Xu Yu Lang’s body fell to the ground, he had completely turned silent, his heart was still beating softly, but in that situation, he was just a step away from death.
Su Yun watched the entire scene quietly, he did not run, did not shout, or reveal any look of fear.
The Profound Sky Sect’s people were so cunning and ruthless, far more than what he thought they were!
“Hahahaha, Master Guan, I truly was not mistaken about you! Well done! Well done! Hahahaha!”
Jie Xue laughed.
Guan Zi Hu laughed, then turned his gaze to Su Yun, and said: “Alright, I’ve killed Xu Yu Lang, you go and handle Sly!”
“Relax relax, I will handle Sly, but before that, aren’t you going to give the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon to me?” Jie Xue crossed his hands across his arm, and said with a look of ridicule.
“Give you?” Guan Zi Hu was startled: “Master Jie Xue, didn’t you say you’re going to give it to me?”
“I was just spouting nonsense, and you believed me? Hehe, you’re truly a dense animal!”
“W-what do you mean!” Guan Zi Hu’s face changed.
“What do I mean? Hehe, you still don’t understand? Idiot, you have already killed Xu Yu Lang and saved me a lot of trouble, now, it is time for me to take care of you too!” Jie Xue sneered, and then walked towards Guan Zi Hu.
“Jie Xue! D-didn’t you say you cannot conceal the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon’s Profound Spirit Qi, and taking it would bring about trouble?”
“Idiot, can’t I just take your treasure?” Jie Xue stared at Guan Zi Hu.
“You’re too despicable! You actually played me! However, do you think I am afraid of you? Our rankings are just 10 places apart, and I have the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon in my hand! Why would I fear you?” Guan Zi Hu clenched his teeth and said.
Jie Xue squinted his eyes and laughed: “I already called you an idiot, and you still don’t think you’re one? How did you think Zhong killed the Skeleton King Demon? It was because he had sent a few disciples to make the Skeleton King Demon use the Cannon first, that’s how he was able to take down the Skeleton King Demon. Right now, the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon is still being recharged and is unable to be activated, do you think you can rely on it to kill me? You’re truly dense! Furthermore, hehehe!”
Jie Xue lightly waved his hand, and strands of blood started to dissipate outwards.
Guan Zi Hu could smell the blood, he was startled for a moment, but did not say anything. He suddenly felt the Qi channels in his body being torn apart, and the Profound Spirit Qi in his body instantly became chaotic, he could not summon any strength!
“W-what’s happening to me? What did you do?” Guan Zi Hu screamed.
“Oh nothing much, just fed you a bit of drugs. Master Guan, do you still remember the Spirit Flower Wine we drank at the restaurant?” Jie Xue sneered.
“There was poison in it?”
“Nope, just a bit of extra ingredient, and only by mixing with this blood would it turn into poison. I have prepared so long for this Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon, I even bought the entire restaurant and also made you want to drink so much, that was how I could bring you there. Out of everyone, you were the easiest to handle. Now that you’re taken care of, everything is easy.”
With that, Jie Xue walked over and directly stepped onto Guan Zi Hu and took the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon that was in his hands.
Guan Zi Hu’s lower body was completely trampled flat, he was enraged, to the point that his chest was about to explode, but what could he do?
Suddenly, he thought about something. He turned his head and saw Su Yun standing there, he immediately bellowed: “Master Sly, this man is cunning and evil. He is ruthless and devious, and planned to steal the Profound Sky Sect’s treasure, why don’t we help each other and kill him?”
“Hahaha, with just him? A trash that only knows how to shapeshift! He is the most useless out of all the sect elites! I can kill him with one finger, and you actually pinned your hopes on him, that’s truly a joke, hahahaha!” Jie Xue laughed out loud.
Su Yun: “….”
