Bai Mu being surrounded and encircled by masses of demons, what was originally a blessed location, a Xian mountain with clouds everywhere, here it has already been buried underneath a sky full of demonic energies, dim and void of light.
Mu Zi Xin stared into the water mirror at the dense mass of Yao and Mo. Occasionally there will be some that come to provoke, their words unlacking in insults, but to the point. However, only surrounding and not attacking, as if they are waiting on something. Heart clouding slightly with confusion, faintly there is some unease, but cannot figure out the real intent.
"Has the reinforcments from the various sects arrived?" Mu Lin Li asked.
"Reporting to Head Master, they are already on the way!"
Brows tightened, he looked towards the Mu Zi Xin besides him "Continuing on like this, just afraid is not a solution. Zi Xin, how about you and I combine our strengths and break the seal of the array to allow in the aid from the various sects."
Mu Zi Xin lightly nodded "As of now, can only do that!"
Just about to turn and go out, from outside the room came an urgent shout.
"Don't! Absolutely cannot!" Yin Luo breathlessly rushed in, not paying attention to the others' startled expressions, grabbed onto Mu Zi Xin's hand.
"Yin Luo, you...." He was also slightly startled. "What happened?"
"Can't... can't let the the various sects come help!" Yin Luo took a deep breath, trying hard to steady her own breathing.
"What is this you are saying!" The Mu Lin Li at the side immediately angered, not caring for any manners anymore, said "My Bai Mu is currently threatened, the Xian realm have always standed together. Can't be that the various sects would stand and ignore instead?"
"It's that that!" Yin Luo gasped "I am saying the Mo realm encircling Bai Mu, is only an illusion. All those people are an illusion created by magic. Surrounding the mountain, there is not that much Yao Mo at all !"
When Yin Luo pantingly said this, everyone present recieved a shock. Mu Zi Xin's heart trembled, with quick steps he walked out of the temple, easily taking a tree leaf on the way, throwing it into the sky. At that moment only a gust of fierce wind swept past, heading straight into the clouds. In the sky above, demonic energies rolled, swaying in movement. Unexpectedly even the figures of people in the sky also followed and distorted in the swaying.
"They want to use spell, creating a false impression of Bai Mu being attacked, fooling the various sects to come help. The true intent is actually to attack the other sects in one sweep." Yin Luo said.
Mu Zi Xin's expression became cold, fingers moved in calculation, realized then that the people from the various sects are already halfway on their way, but the Mo realm's immense army directly aimed at Qiong Shan, Yu Jian, Sheng Yun and other sects were also pressing close.
"Chian Fan!" He turned towards Gu Chian Fan besides him, "Immediately go alert the various sects' friends who are coming towards Bai Mu to return promptly to their respective sects to resist the Mo realm's assault!" Then turning his head and looking towards the Mu Lin Li at the side who's face is already paled "Shi Xiong, please make a command for all the disciples, immediately launch an attack on the Mo realm!"
Mu Lin Li finally awoke, quickly turned and returned to the temple, raised his voice towards the thousand disciples filling the courtyard and said "Bai Mu's disciples, listen to order. Immediately attack, destroy the Yao Mo, safeguard the righteous way, protect Bai Mu!"
"Yes!" An orderly resonating echo sounded.
Suddenly Bai Mu's disciples left all together, only seeing countless trails of lights resembling shooting stars fly into the sky, towards the demonic masses.
Mu Zi Xin's regal figure stood like jade, tilting his head to look into the sky, that gradually dispersing demonic energy. Brows gathering together, the heart however is thinking about the safety of the various sects. Of the disciples, Chian Fan is of the best, only hope that he can get there in time!
A long sigh, turning his head towards the Yin Luo besides him, the corner of his lips moved slightly "Thank you Gu Niang for your warning! If it weren't for you, just afraid the Xian realm will experience a catastrophe."
Yin Luo smiled in reply "I just discovered on coincidence!"
"I owe you yet again!"
"Only a small labor, High Xian does not need to take it to heart!"
"To you it might only be a small labor, but to me it is actually..." His gaze lightly locked, directly looking into her expression, as if wanting to find something on her face.
Yin Luo unconsciously backed away a step, giving a faltering laugh, "Now that Bai Mu is battling the gathered Mo force, naturally they cannot do without High Xian!" The meaning behind the words, 'You should leave right away.'
Mu Zi Xin finally took back his gaze, glancing behind at the person behind whom had already caught up. Tilting his head to look into the chaotic sky, his eyes narrowed "Gu Niang take care, Zi Xin will take leave temporarily!" Then finally, he flew and joined into battle.
Yin Luo let out a big breath. She somehow feel that this person's gaze is getting sharper and sharper, almost like wanting to directly look into her heart.
"Why did you have to tell them and sell favor!" The Yue Ran that had caught up stood firm, still slightly enraged "The matters of the Xian realm, we should not stick our hands in!"
She sighed, knowing he still held a grudge towards the Xian realm "We are currently situated at Bai Mu, and anyways if the Xian realm is compltely demolished, to the Divine Mountain that is not exactly a good thing either!"
Yue Ran pressed his lips together, anger unchanging "Ya Tou! No matter what you do, they won't thank you! Do you know that in order to cast an illusion over the entire Bai Mu, but not alarm anyone, what kind of spell is that requiring?"
"I know!" Yin Luo gave a smile "It's one of the forbidden sealing techniques 'Sky Veil'"
"You know?" Yue Ran became even more enraged "Since you actually know, you should know furthermore that 'Sky Veil' 'Sneering Wanderer' 'Tian Ling Array' all have their origins with the God race. If they were to suspect that this incident is a concieved intent of the God race, at that time the last thing they'll do is thank you for saving them!"
"I also know this, but..." She turned around and looked at him "but I can't watch them die with my eyes wide open!"
Yue Ran was at a loss for words, looking at that determined expression in her eyes. She is ultimately of the God race, the soul of all creation. To make her watch lives perish with her eyes wide open is ultimately impossible. It has nothing to do with anything else, that is her innate nature.
"Do whatever you want!" Seeing that persuasion failed, can only let out a long sigh. He took a step forward, blocking in front her "The favor, you already helped. Now stay put for me. Them engaging in battle, can't guarantee that you won't be hit by a stray blow!"
Yin Luo blanked out for a moment, glancing at him standing in front of her like a mother hen, again unable to help the corner of her lip curving upwards. At the bottom of her heart something warm seeped out. When arriving he had said before that he would try his best to protect her, at this moment he is exactly using actions to prove it. Can she slightly, again, believe him this once?
On the peak of the Divine Mountain, a red robed lady was with her head lowered, looking into the image inside the water mirror. On Bai Mu's xian mountain, Xian and Mo are in battle. Illusion broken, demonic energy completely dispersed , leaving behind Yao and Mo not even five hundred. The situation immediately reversed.
Brows furrowed, a moment of deep thought, a cold tone sounded "Qing Zhi"
Words dropping, the center of the empty and quiet great hall flassed a green figure. A lone person knelt on one knee on the floor "Lord Honor!"
"How is the preparation?"
"Reporting to Lord Honor!" His two hands came together, "It has been arranged in accordance to Lord Honor's order."
A sound of acknowledgement. She turned her body around and continued to looking to the water mirror before her.
"Only..." The brows of the person on the floor tightened briefly, on the face is a difficult expression.
"Subordinate discovered, the person who surrounded Bai Mu is the Mo Realm's newly appointed Fifth Herald, named 'Su Xian'"
"Su Xian?" The area between her brows tightened slightly. Fingers moving in calculation, her expression became cold. Hastily turning around and stared unmovingly towards the water mirror, on the face that usually never shows any change, unexpectedly revealed a few degrees of heaviness. Furthermore, the hand besides her body instantly clenched tight.
Bai Mu xian mountain, disciples enter and exit. The Mo Realm used "Sky Veil" forbidden art, creating confusion. What looked like an entire sky filled with Yao and Mo, is in fact not even amount to five hundred. An abrubt battle came on, all in exception of the few leading, have largely been subdued.
"You lot have no where to escape!" Head Master Mu held a fiery sword, with a stern face looking towards the last dozen of Yao and Muo that has already been thoroughly seized.
At the lead is a black robed man, demonic nature enveloping the entire body, a pair of eyes like burnt incense. At the center of the forehead is a small black demonic mark, especially eye-catching. In hand is a five inch thick longsword. He stared, full with resentment, at Mu Ling Li. This person was Su Xian.
"Those of the various sects have already gone back, as of now the Mo Realm has no chances for victory, you should surrender early. Do not continue accumulating sin from killing!"
"Commit sin?" Su Xian let out a cold laugh, becoming loud laughter. "HA HA HA... not false, I just want to commit sin, I just want to kill off your entire herd of self-righteous Xian Realm people!"
"My Bai Mu and you have no fate or enmity, the Mo Realm and Xian Realm also have been mutually sound, for what reason must you stir up conflict?
"Mutually sound! Huh!" Su Xian's expression iced, the hatred in his eyes intensified "You Xian Realm self boast as pure streams, on the surface don't stur up strife, but in the background slay countless of my Mo Realm, even self-labeling it as whatever 'eliminate demons, defend righteousness?'"
"That is because you Mo Realm unheedingly trouble the mortal realm, disrupting the order of the six realms!"
"Order? What is order? Who determines the order of the six realms?" He refuted "That is only an excuse for your hypocritical, self-crowned throne!
"Insolence!" Mu Lin Li's eyes became severe, anger completely filling his visage. "How can I tolerate your slandering the Xian Realm!"
"Have I spoken falsity? You can turn a blind eye to your own people in their critical time, fearing head and tail, no need to mention those of other realms?"
"Absurdity!" Mu Lin Li let out an angry breath, "The Xian Realm has always been held together by a common breath, following the righteous way of the world! How can there be a happening like you have said?"
"Don't believe it?" Su Xian let out a dry laugh "It can't be that Head Master Mu has forgotten, a thousand years ago the incident of Qing Yun Sect's fall overnight, right?"
His facial expression delayed, appearing as if thinking of something, dazed out for a moment.
Su Xian's laugh darkened "The Goddess Chi Ji, in a night's time massacred the entirety of Qing Yun. I dare to ask, the Xian Realm then, had there been anyone that spoke even half a justifying word?"
He frowned. The incident of Qing Yun's fall, that occured a thousand years ago is common knowledge. "That incident was underlying with Chi Ji's plunge into madness, the consequence of loosing sanity, an unintentional wrong. Further, Chi Ji is already dead. Naturally it's impossible to trace!"
"Bull shit!" He suddenly became furious "You are all obviously just fearful of the Gods' authority, afraid to challenge the God race!"
Mu Lin Li's pair of brows gathered tightly, not wanting to continue wasting words. "Saying more is no use, if today you are not taken down, will be difficult to uphold the name of my Bai Mu!"
Finished talking, flying forward, the assault was fierce. Immediately, the sky filled with glints of swords flowing. Su Xian held his sword and blocked the sword attack, body did a backwards flip, borrowing the momentum of his sword, making a counter attack. In that moment, only can hear a ear-stinging sound, a million streaks of white light bursted from between the two touching swords. One Mo and one Xian, two bodies of immense energy collided.
Those nearby put up barriers one after another, defending against that permeating collision force.
Mu Lin Li was secretly startled, not expecting that this Su Xian was possessing of such capability. That blow didn't only block his sword force, but sent it back entirely. Just afraid that this person's skill is not below his own. Immediately gathering the mind and heart together, he whole-heartedly prepared to meet combat.
Because flashing lights rose again, the sky endlessly flashed with bright light. After a long while, Mu Lin Li gradually was subdued to the downwind, all of the sword attacks he used were completely dissolved.
A cold smile was on Su Xian's lips "Bai Mu's Head Master is only so." Seeing the perfect timing, taking advantage of the sword attack, making a backhanded stab, reverting from defence into offense, directly aiming at the chest. Mu Lin Li did not react in time, saw that he was about to take a sword.
Suddenly a white figure flashed by, Su Xian's sword suddenly bounced back three feet. Mu Zi Xin had rushed in on time, blocking down that fatal sword attack.
Su Xian's eyes narrowed lightly, looking towards that person who had suddenly intervened into the battle. A white jade sword was in his hand, cold air flowing in all directions. "Bai Mu Zi Xin! So you are one of the Xian Realm's four High Xians?"
Mu Zi Xin's facial expression didn't change, turned around and replied: "Shi Xiong, will have to trouble you to go take care of the injured disciples!"
Mu Lin Li took a glance at Su Xian, contemplated for a while, at that nodding his head. "You be careful!" This person is not someone he can take up.
Su Xian's grip tightened on the sword in his hand, "Good. I, Su Xian, today would like to see for myself what kind of capability does a so-called High Xian have afterall?" Words not yet finished, the attack is already in formation. Sword glinted fiercely, only aiming to kill.
Mu Zi Xin silently stood in the air, a hand behind his back, white robe flowing, an indescribable elegance. His expression had still yet to show any turbulences, as if unable to see that closely arriving sword assault of his.
Can see that sword force has already made it over, suddenly his body flickered. Su Xian only felt a gust of cold rush over from his left side, hurriedly turning his body around. Only saw Mu Zi Xin's sword already arrived, he raised his sword and blocked it, the perfect opportunity was already lost.
From the side of his ear drifted over a few lines of incantation, he knew this was not good. Just about to withdraw and retreat, Mu Zi Xin raised his hand and with a wave, a thread of light flew from between his fingers. Immediately it caught onto Su Xian, in a matter of a moment rendered him unable to move.
A Restraint Spell!
Su Xian was greatly startled. He actually used a mere one move, capturing him then and there. Not disappointing as Bai Mu's High Xian!
Now you've all met yet another important guy. It was so hard finding someone other than Yuan Hong who fits Su Xian. There's other reasons why it can only be Yuan Hong, but that's a mystery to be revealed some chaps later.
Chapter 20 will be posted by Tuesday.
