Framing and Shifting the Blame
“Are you looking down on me?”
Su Yun looked around and asked casually.
“Yes I am!” Jie Xue laughed, and walked towards Su Yun.
“You have also taken in the blood mist, but you have no reaction. It seems that, you did not drink the wine?”
“I noticed a weird smell in the wine, so as a precaution, I did not drink it.”
“Oh? So careful, but even if you didn’t drink it, I can take care of you easily!” Jie Xue laughed: “But Sly, actually, I can leave a way out for you. If you are willing to hand over the ‘Shapeshift Bone piece’, I won’t kill you. Of course, the condition is that you must leave the Profound Sky sect, what about that?”
“Impossible.” Su Yun shook his head: “You just betrayed everyone in front of me. How can I believe you? Furthermore, I don’t think that you can kill me.”
“Can’t kill you?”Jie Xue was startled, and then he laughed out loud: “Sly, where is your confidence coming from? To think that I can’t kill you? Hahahaha, what a joke! Since you think like that, then let me see what strength you possess!”
With that said, his face immediately turned sinister, and a steel fist directly flew towards Su Yun.
The Profound Spirit Qi following the fist was like a cheetah’s claws, it was unstoppable.
But just as it was about to strike Su Yun’s heart, a palm swept gently and enveloped the fist completely.
The palm was filled with an even stronger Profound Spirit Qi, and fiercely suppressed Jie Xue’s fist.
Jie Xue’s attack was stopped!
“What?” His eyes were opened wide and his face filled with shock.
“Just like that?”
Su Yun’s eyebrow twitched, he held onto the fist tightly. Then he extended his other hand and grabbed onto Jie Xue’s shoulder.
Jie Xue’s left elbow was completely ripped off.
He screamed in pain, and his face distorted in anguish.
Su Yun released his fist, allowing Jie Xue to retreat. He held onto his bloodied shoulder while staring at Su Yun, his eyes no longer filled with rage, it was replaced with shock and bewilderment instead.
“How is that possible? W-why are you so powerful? Are you Sly? Isn’t Sly ranked 73? Why are you able to produce such strength?”
He screamed frantically.
“Sly does not have such strength.”
Su Yun took Jie Xue’s ripped off left hand. He opened up the palm and took the ‘golden plate’ from the hand. After scrutinizing it, he threw it into his storage ring, and then looked at Jie Xue: “But I do.”
“Who are you?” Jie Xue pressed against his wound and asked. He already knew that the person in front of him was not Sly, but a fake!
He watched as the person opened his storage ring and retrieved a long and pitch black sword sheath, holding it by his side. He waved his hand, and in a flash he touched the sword sheath, releasing a blood red flying sword that directly flew towards Jie Xue.
Sou sou sou sou!
At the same time, many sub swords flew out from the sword sheath and followed along the blood red sword towards Jie Xue, instantly changing the situation!
“Limitless? Su Yun! You are Su Yun!” Jie Xue immediately understood and realized who the person was.
“What? Su Yun?” Guan Zi Hu was also stunned, looking at Su Yun in shock, he asked: “H-how are you Su Yun? Sly? Where is Master Sly? Where is he?!”
But, before Guan Zi Hu could hear Su Yun’s reply, he heard Jie Xue screaming in pain.
The thousand flying swords soared over, smashing straight into Jie Xue powerfully. Jie Xue activated his Profound Spirit Qi barrier to block the swords, but upon being released, it was instantly shattered. He was also pierced by the swords and pinned onto the ground.
“It’s useless, Jie Xue. Su Yun is someone who defeated the Spirit Demon Emperor. It is said that he is a third stage Spirit Star Realm cultivator, you can’t fight him at all. It’s impossible, but now you and I are the same, we are like fishes waiting to be killed, hahahaha!” Guan Zi Hu recovered from his shock, and upon seeing Jie Xue’s plight, he immediately laughed out loud.
Ignoring the fact that Su Yun did not get poisoned, even if he did, Jie Xue, who was not even a first stage Spirit Star Realm, cannot be an opponent against a peak third stage Spirit Star Realm expert.
Su Yun slowly walked towards Jie Xue, but Jie Xue’s shocked face gradually became calm again, slowly, his mouth arched into a smile, and a strange laughter came out from his mouth.
“I never thought, I never thought at all! I have calculated every single detail, every nook and cranny, but in the end, I will still fail!! No matter what I had thought of, how could I think that the real Sly was already dead and the fake was actually Su Yun?”
“The Profound Sky Sect have thought of ways to capture me, and even massacred the Su Family to lure me out. I cannot possibly be on the defensive, so it is time for me to make a move!”
Su Yun immediately stood in front of Jie Xue, raised the Immortal Mystical Scarlet Blood Sword and pierced it into his shoulder.
The sharp sword blade pierced into the shoulder.
Jie Xue trembled due to the pain, but this time he did not voice the pain out.
He tensed his state of mind, and forced out a smile: “I dare to promise, after so many years, the person that have made the Profound Sky Sect have the biggest headache, is definitely you.”
“I will not only make them have a headache!”
Su Yun gradually turned the sword hilt, causing the sword blade in the shoulder to start turning and cutting the flesh around the blade, and slowly moved towards his neck.
The torn wound oozed out with blood, a scene that could cause people’s hair to stand. Guan Zi Hu swallowed his saliva, his heart beating frantically. He had long heard of Su Yun being an Evil Realm being, but he had never thought that Su Yun would be so evil.
The sword moved, blood spurt into the air, followed by a light ‘plop’ sound. Jie Xue had completely died.
Su Yun’s eyes was extremely calm, and he turned towards Guan Zi Hu.
“Since you actually revealed yourself, then you definitely do not plan to leave anyone alive in order to conceal your secret. Su Yun, to die in your hands, I am willing!” Guan Zi Hu’s entire body was twitching as he spoke weakly.
“If your blood touches my sword, I will feel disgusted.” Su Yun said indifferently.
“You…” Guan Zi Hu became angry.
“As an expert that’s about to step into the Spirit Star Realm, for your desires, you killed innocent people willfully and tyrannically. Even a demon or evil being will not want to be like you. You are truly a person that makes me feel utterly disgusted!”
The moment he said that, the Immortal Mystical Scarlet Blood Sword pierced through Guan Zi Hu’s throat like lightning.
Guan Zi Hu had not even finished speaking, his mouth was pierced by the sword, which was then pulled downwards towards the throat, immediately slicing the body in two.
Blood flowed everywhere.
Everything was over.
No matter what or how anyone could think, no one would be able to know that Sly was not the Sly they knew, but Su Yun, the person that the Profound Sky Sect was trying to catch with all their might!
He walked over and took Guan Zi Hu’s storage ring, and then rummaged through it once.
A golden purple colored jade was taken out by him.
“This jade is actually releasing such a rich yet faint Spirit Qi. If it is placed on any treasure, it will definitely be able to conceal the treasure’s Qi. I never thought that Guan Zi Hu would actually have such a treasure.”
Su Yun exclaimed to himself in his mind, and then took out the ‘Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon’ and placed the jade onto the Cannon. He then imbued Profound Spirit Qi into them, then the jade started to merge into the ‘Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon’, and the powerful rich Qi of the treasure was immediately replaced by a faint Spirit Qi.
He then bit his finger, and dropped a drop of blood into the heart of the ‘Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon’, causing the cannon to transform into a gold light which drilled itself into Su Yun’s right palm.
This grade of treasure was the same level as the Heavenly Crystal, Sprite’s Shadow etc. He had to quickly form a connection with it, otherwise, he would not be able to control it.
Su Yun looked at the golden imprint on his palm, and was ecstatic : ~Great.~
After dealing with Jie Xue and Guan Zi Hu, Su Yun looked around, then he released the Immortal Mystical Scarlet Blood Sword, and used the storm sword technique on Jie Xue’s body. A burst of torrential wave releasing many sword sounds gathered and instantly sliced Jie Xue’s corpse into pieces.
Su Yun extended his hand and released Spirit Qi and shattered the pieces of Jie Xue’s body parts and his sect elite badge into dust.
He then wiped off the blood from Immortal Mystical Scarlet Blood Sword and kept it into the Everlasting Sword Sheath, and then kept everything into his storage ring.
He returned to Xu Yu Lang’s side, seeing that he had fainted long ago, and the fire venom was burning towards his heart, Su Yun immediately took out a few pills and forced them into Xu Yu Lang’s mouth. He then activated the Monarch Occult Force and places his hand on Xu Yu Lang, pouring Spirit Life Qi to treat Xu Yu Lang.
After a few breaths, he retracted his palm and before the Spirit Qi had dissipated from his palm, he smacked himself on the chest a few times, causing himself to bleed, and then activated the Shapeshift Bonepiece, turning back into ‘Sly’, and laid on the ground.
The poisonous Qi slowly dissipated. Two people laid on the ground and the fire venom in Xu Yu lang had been dispelled, allowing him to regain some consciousness. However, the injuries on his body were still severe, he could only open his eyes slightly and roughly look at his surroundings.
“Master Sly, Master Guan?”
Xu Yu Lang called out weakly, but no one replied.
The bleak scene emerged in his eyes, and he had roughly guessed what happened.
After a while, a few light auras shot out from the sky and landed near them.
It was a total of four people, three males and one female.
“Rank 44 Master Lian Yue, rank 50 Master Gu Mo Duo, rank 49 Master Zhang Chang Xin? Master Bai Li? All of you are here too!” Xu Yu Lang forced opened his eyes and looked at the four, a trace of light appearing in his eyes.
“What happened here? The 10 disciples outside are actually massacring our sect disciples! We killed seven of them, and captured 3 alive! Aren’t they the disciples under Master Jie Xue’s charge? How could that happen?”
The purple robed Lian Yue questioned straightforwardly, her face was chubby with baby fats, her appearance was rather pretty, rosy lips and white teeth, her figure slender.
“Do not ask so much, save them first!” Rank 20 Bai Li Tian bellowed.
The three of them nodded, and immediately began instigating spirit qi for treatment.
“Master Bai Li, Master Guan is dead!”
“Master, Master Sly is still breathing!”
“Quick! Quickly save him! We must save him!” Bai Li Tian bellowed anxiously.
The three of them nodded.
After half an hour of time, Xu Yu Lang had already recovered to being able to converse properly, he laid on the ground and gasped for air, his face was shockingly white.
Seeing that he was fine, they then surrounded Sly.
Bai Li Tian walked over to Xu Yu Lang.
“Master Xu, what exactly happened here? Why are all of you…? And, where is Master Jie Xue?”
Xu Yu Lang’s eyes were immediately brimming with unending hatred and anger, he clenched his teeth and said: “Jie Xue, that traitor! Master Zhong risked his life to kill the Skeleton King Demon and suffered severe injuries, not only did Jie Xue ignore his plea for treatment, he also sneaked attack on all of us! He planned all of this! He killed Master Zhong, and wanted to kill us, his intent was to steal the Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon to use it by himself! Jie Xue, he, has already betrayed the Profound Sky Sect!!!”
Bai Li Tian and the other three were completely stupefied!!!
