Chapter 172.2: Only By Killing Him, Will You Be Truly Freed
From then on, the Puppeteers Sect fell into non existence.
Even though several hundred years have passed since that incident and over that long period of time, it was not known when a puppeteer appeared again but there was no example of the malevolent use of human sacrifice ever found and it looked as if puppeteers were developing towards a more positive direction, so people grew to become less averse to them.
But what was Lou Jun Yao seeing here before his eyes? They were clearly puppets created from humans!
Lou Jun Yao’s face grew grave and a fiery blaze lit up within his eyes. “The sacrifice of humans in puppetry has been forbidden for hundreds of years and you have actually broken that taboo. Aren’t you afraid that you will incur the wrath of the world upon you?”
“Taboo? Hahahahaha. I make the rules here under these Heavens! So what if I am reviled by the world? I will stand at the pinnacle of this world sooner or later, to become the King of the entire land!” The man who remained hidden broke out into highly arrogant laughter, his voice confident with voracious ambition, filled with utter contempt for the rest of the world.
At the same moment that his voice fell, the puppets that had been immobile suddenly seemed as if their acupoints had just released, their drooped down heads starting to move with a loud clattering. The arms at their sides snapped up with a swoosh to reveal long black fingernails at the tips of their hands.
And on the faces that were veiled by their dishevelled hair, bright red eyes burned with a light filled with avid desire.
“Puppetry and the Eye Ray Technique are both similar in the way they are able to control a person’s consciousness. I am rather keen to see which of these two long lost ancient secret techniques takes the upperhand.”
The man said in a sinister voice and then made a strange sound with his mouth. The very next second, the lifeless and sluggish puppets then started to move at an alarming;y fast speed.
Their long nails were incredibly sharp, and with a single swipe of their hand, the thick trees in the courtyard were cut right through, falling to the ground with a loud crash.
It looked like he had come here prepared tonight and an isolation barrier should have been set up around the place, so no matter how big a commotion rocked the place, no one would hear anything.
Lou Jun Yao’s eyes deepened and the jet black eyes that had been altered were slowly revealing its true colour from the use of the Eye Ray, to become an alluring deep violet.
That night, the girls chatted for a short while before they all went to their beds to sleep, and only Qing Yu who could not find deep restful sleep lay there with her brows furrowed together, tossing and turning, unable to get proper rest.
For some unknown reason, her heart was just feeling rather perturbed.
Suddenly, a violent shiver shot through her entire body for an instant, and her body tensed up, stiff as a board.
“Qing Qing, wake up~ Don’t you want to see me?”
“Qing Qing, I miss you so much. We’ve not met for so many years and you’ve become so much more beautiful. But, I still remember how you looked in your bridal gown and you were the most beautiful woman in the world.”
