In the blink of an eye, the foot of the mountain was empty.
Everyone had gone to the mountain to fight for their opportunity, and only Su Shi and Cen Yiren had yet to depart.
Cen Yiren repeatedly asked, “Why haven’t we set off yet?”
Su Shi shook his head and said, “Why rush? Opportunities are not easy to come by, those who rush will have a hard time.”
Tianqu Mountain was full of ferocious beasts, and those who entered the mountain first would be surrounded by a large number of demonic beasts.
Not to mention the fact that there was friction between Righteous people and Demonic people.
Ferocious beast roars resounded throughout the mountains, accompanied by faint wails of misery.
Cen Yiren shivered.
“That seems reasonable.”
Great opportunities often came with great risks as well.
Since one wanted to go out and grab it, then one must be prepared to die.
After a long time, the roar faded away.
The wave of beasts should have chased the cultivators towards the interior of the mountain range.
“It’s almost time, let’s go.”
Su Shi got up and headed towards Tianqu Mountain.
Cen Yiren followed him with the same steps.
Although she felt irritated with this man, she had to admit that he was wise and thought things through more thoroughly than she did.
But before he could take a few more steps, Su Shi stopped.
Only to see an old man standing not far ahead.
His hair was white and his long beard reached his chest, and he was none other than the Palace guest from Tianyi Sect that he had met at Spring Breeze Pavilion.
“Su Shi, I’ve been waiting here for a long time.”
The bearded old man rubbed his beard and his smile was ice-cold.
Su Shi frowned slightly, “You want to kill me?”
At a time like this, the other party’s purpose for appearing here was already quite clear.
“Have you thought about the consequences? Can Tianyi Sect bear Her Majesty’s wrath?”
The bearded old man snorted, “You don’t need to scare me with Demon Empress, besides you obviously died in the mouth of a demonic beast, what does that have to do with my Tianyi Sect?”
Holy Emperor suddenly issued a decree that no one cultivators above Nascent Soul Realm should enter the mountain.
The old man thought that there was no chance, but it turned out that Su Shi had procrastinated and delayed entering until now.
Now that no one was around, this was the perfect time to kill this demon!
“You go first, I will stop him.”
Ceng Yiren said in a deep voice, “When the fight starts later, you run straight to the mountain, as long as you enter the mountain, you will be safe.”
Su Shi frowned, “What about you?”
Cen Yiren took out a large sword and stood in front of him with a fearless expression, “My mission is to ensure that you are safe and sound. Remember to tell my father so that he can annihilate the entire Tianyi Sect!”
She knew in her heart that this old man was at the Late Stage of Nascent Soul Realm, she couldn’t even block a single move from her opponent.
But still, she was willing to die!
Su Shi fell into silence.
At this moment, he seemed to understand what the system meant when it said that Cen Yiren had undergone an inner transformation.
The old man smiled fiercely, “No need to rush, neither of you two can escape, today I will take revenge for brother Lin Quan!”
“When this old man is done killing you two, I will go and take the life of that mongrel Shenxiu!”
Su Shi levitated.
No wonder this old man had such a strong killing aura.
It turned out that it wasn’t for An Hongdou, but for Lin Quan, the Tianyi Sect member who died in Yulin City!
Su Shi looked indifferent, “You can’t kill me.”
The old man didn’t respond, but his murderous aura could be seen in his eyes, “Although you’re a genius that hasn’t been seen in ten thousand years, you’re only at the Early Stage of Golden Elixir Realm, while I’m one realm above you, so it doesn’t take much effort to kill you!”
The old man took a step forward, the boundless curtain of night instantly isolated this place, and the terrifying pressure of a cultivator of the Nascent Soul Realm burst out!
He didn’t intend to speak anymore.
No matter how genius he is, he must die here today!
Su Shi said with an unhappy face, “I said, have you seen enough of this drama? If you don’t take action soon, I will complain to Her Majesty!”
The old man’s brows furrowed and he had a bad feeling in his heart.
A sharp screech sounded and the night curtain was instantly engulfed in raging flames!
A huge vermilion bird hung in the air, its body blazing with flames, just like the blazing sun in the sky!
The bearded old man’s knees became weak and he fell to the ground with a thud!
Seeing the divine bird in the air, his body trembled slightly and his eyes were filled with fear.
“Is that him?”
Cen Yiren’s eyes lit up and he waved his hand vigorously in greeting.
The vermilion bird shook its wings and transformed into a single slender figure amidst the burning flames.
His position was just below after the throne of Demon Empress, South Saint, Feng Zhongque!
Feng Zhongque descended from the air and frowned at Su Shi, “How did you know I was here?”
Su Shi shrugged, “I’m the sect’s precious treasure, how could Her Majesty not send someone to protect me?”
Feng Zhongque was a little helpless.
This person is quite intelligent, even though I want to take this opportunity to see his strength ……
Su Shi glanced at the old man, “I said, you can’t kill me, I have someone behind to protect me, do you understand?”
The bearded old man trembled.
This man actually had a Saint of the Demonic path personally protecting him?
Su Shi didn’t bother looking at him, “Saint Feng, I’ll trouble you here, the two of us will go to the mountain first.”
Feng Zhongque nodded and said, “Alright, I can’t enter Tianqu Mountain, you two take care of yourselves.”
The Holy Emperor’s ban was no joke.
The Demon Empress could ignore it, but not Feng Zhongque.
As he watched the two enter the mountain, Feng Zhongque looked at the old man and said coldly, “Tomorrow, half a day from now, Tianyi Sect will become history.”
Half a day.
An indifferent response sounded in the air, “The Imperial Palace will not interfere, but don’t involve innocent people!”
It was the mysterious voice of the dragon and horse carriage.
The old man’s body trembled for a moment, his eyes filled with the ashes of deadly despair.
Feng Zhongque sneered, “No one in this world is innocent!”
With that, he stepped into the wind and left.
The old man’s body burst into flames all around him and turned into ashes in a miserable wail.
A Late Stage of Nascent Soul Realm powerhouse simply disappeared into nothingness.
“Fool, does he think Su Shi is that easy to kill?”
The mysterious voice sighed slightly, “To end the old and new hatreds, Tianyi Sect already touched the red line by provoking the Demon Empress’ wrath instead.”
Su Shi and Cen Yiren meandered amongst the dense forest.
The beasts outside had all been lured by the cultivators who had entered the mountain first, and the two had an unobstructed journey.
Of course, this also meant that the closer they got to the interior, the more dangerous the situation became.
As she watched the trees fall and blood splatter around her, she couldn’t help but shiver as she witnessed the hell on earth.
Shu said amusedly, “Are you afraid? Didn’t you just have a lot of courage?”
Cen Yiren gulped, “Who said I was afraid?”
Although she had a fiery temperament, she rarely left the sect and had never seen such a tragic scene.
Su Shi reached out and rubbed her hair, “Don’t worry, I will protect you.”
Cen Yiren’s body stiffened and she glared at him with a red face, “I don’t need your protection! Also, don’t touch my head, I’m not a puppy!”
“I’m not a puppy!” But her heart warmed as she said that, and the slight discomfort disappeared.
At that moment, a rang sounded in Su Shi’s ears.
[Guest from Tianyi Sect, Wang Mu died, affected the next plot trend, gained 10 plot points].
Although Wang Mu was not killed by him, he died because of him, so he would still receive plot points.
At this moment, a hanging white-furred tiger stopped in front of the two of them, its red eyes staring at them deadly, its eyes full of greedy killing intent!
Su Shi was just about to make a move when Cen Yiren had already rushed forward with his broadsword.
“What are you waiting for?”
