Chapter 1843 - 1843 Breaking Through
1843 Breaking Through
Chu Liuyue looked over and saw that the people from the Black Sword Sect had returned.
Behind them was an unfamiliar man; he was burly and cold-faced. Most importantly, his aura was very shocking. Seeing how the few people beside him were very respectful to him, this man was obviously the leader.
San San suddenly gave Chu Liuyue a look and spat out two words silently. “Mo Yun—”
Chu Liuyue instantly understood. So he is Mo Yun! However… why is he here? It’s too fast!!!
Mo Yun didn’t notice that Chu Liuyue’s group had already hidden themselves.
Coincidentally, both sides were standing on opposite sides of the canyon, so Chu Liuyue’s group could clearly see their faces and expressions. Of course, they could also hear what they were saying.
Mo Yun glanced into the canyon and frowned with obvious dissatisfaction. “Is this the result of your assessment this month?”
His voice was very cold, with a solemn and cold pressure.
The people around him were still injured, but they didn’t dare to make a sound in front of him.
Hearing this question, the few of them looked even more terrified.
“Deputy Sect Master, there are indeed no good seedlings in this batch of people…”
She saw the man who had been called ‘Second Brother’ bending down in fear. His face was white with fear.
Finally, there was no need to mention the people beside him.
Mo Yun’s expression turned even colder. “Even if it’s the same, you should clean up this place! If anyone sees this…”
There was no need to finish the threat. The people below naturally understood.
Second Brother, Third Brother, and the others looked at each other. They originally wanted to explain what had happened previously, but looking at the situation, they couldn’t say it no matter what.
They met outsiders during the assessment and had a conflict with them. In the end, they even lost… Fortunately, those people were no longer around. Otherwise, they would all be dead!
The few of them had a tacit understanding and swallowed their words. “You’re right! It’s all because we’re too useless… That’s why…”
Mo Yun waved his hand impatiently.
A ball of black fog surged out of his hand and quickly spread into the canyon! In just a few breaths, the black fog had already covered the bloody scene below!
A scalp-numbing sound echoed.
As Chu Liuyue listened, she subconsciously held her breath, but her eyes were still fixed on the ground.
After a while, the black fog faded.
Chu Liuyue’s heart tightened. Those corpses are all gone! Even the bloodstains on the ground have disappeared completely!
At a glance, other than some scorch marks left by the lightning, there were almost no clues. Nobody would’ve guessed what a terrifying and bloody scene this place was not long ago!
“Alright, I’ll let you off for now. There won’t be a next time!”
After making sure that the traces in the canyon had been cleaned up, Mo Yun turned around and left. Second Brother, Third Brother, and the others hurriedly followed.
From beginning to end, they didn’t notice Chu Liuyue and the others hiding opposite them.
After those people completely disappeared, she took one last look at the canyon. “Let’s go back first.”
At Yue Manor.
There was silence in the study.
Sitting behind the table, Chu Liuyue’s expression was calm, and her long eyelashes were slightly lowered as if she were thinking about something.
Cen Yi and the other two stood in front of her and waited quietly.
After a while, she said, “They’re looking for talented cultivators.”
It wasn’t a question but an affirmative statement. Because judging from what they had seen earlier, that was the truth.
“No wonder they wanted to take Thirteen away previously…” Chu Liuyue narrowed her eyes. And it was still so urgent and tyrannical. It can be seen that a genius like Thirteen is extremely attractive to them. From their proficiency, it’s obvious that they have been doing this for a long time.
San San said,
“Fortunately, Big Brother made a move in time today, so they didn’t discover us. Otherwise, we would’ve been in trouble.”
Even though he couldn’t stand the Black Sword Sect and wanted to cut ties with them as soon as possible, he still didn’t know the other party’s background. If he rashly made a fuss, it would only make the situation worse.
Chu Liuyue nodded, collected her thoughts, and gazed at Cen Yi. “Cen Yi, I haven’t seen you for a while. You’ve improved a lot in this aspect.”
Cen Yi nodded slightly. “It’s just some small things for self-defense. Sorry for embarrassing you, Master.”
Chu Liuyue curled her lips into a half-smile. “If I’m not wrong, Mo Yun should be a legendary warrior, and the remaining few are basically all true gods. To be able to avoid their detection… Cen Yi, you’re usually good at everything, but there’s one thing: you’re too humble.”
Cen Yi relaxed his eyebrows and cut off his usual indifference. “It’s my duty to protect my master.”
This was what I should’ve done.
Chu Liuyue stroked her chin. Anyway, I can never out-talk him. Sometimes, even I am amazed by Cen Yi’s ability.
“Master, those people probably won’t say anything about today for the sake of their lives. You can rest assured about this for the time being,” San San rubbed his hands and said.
Chu Liuyue nodded. San San knows their people quite well. Since he has said so, he should be right. Besides, I think so myself.
Although it’s still very likely that this matter will be discovered later, it is better for them to hide it for a while. This is because the people from the Black Sword Sect clearly don’t want any outsiders to know about this.
“Keep this matter a secret for the time being. Don’t let anyone know, but if you find anything wrong, report it immediately.”
“Yes, Master!” They all agreed.
After thinking about it, Chu Liuyue changed the topic and asked about San San’s visit to the Black Sword Sect to deliver the Merge Spirit Herb today.
It was fine if she didn’t mention this, but when she did, San San felt as if a knife was twisting in his heart. He immediately told her everything; he was filled with grief and tears. “…Master, those are all your things! Aren’t they going to empty your treasures?!”
Chu Liuyue smiled and glanced at him. “Alright, you don’t have to remind me about this. I’ll get back at them in the future.”
After a moment’s thought, she said, “When’s the next time you go to Clear Water Cliff?”
