Chapter 247: Attacking the Protective Formation
The two men who had appeared were Luo Tian and Ye Yu.
To show the snobbish disciples of the great sects what they could do, they had intentionally made a grand entrance. Indeed, they had shocked Qiao Shaohua and the others.
Qiao Shaohua was utterly unable to figure out when Luo Tian and Ye Yu had approached them. If it they had been enemies attacking, he would likely be dead already.
Thinking of this, his chest tightened, and he became more wary of Luo Tian and Ye Yu.
Yue Lingjun was also paying close attention to Luo Tian and Ye Yu. However, she was thinking about how Ye Jiuge’s subordinates were all unique, handsome men. One was beautiful, and the other was dashing.
She thought, Is she so lucky with men just because she is good looking? I am unwilling to accept this!
“Ye Yu, Luo Tian, you have arrived,” Gong Honglei greeted them.
Although he had not interacted much with them in the Medicine Refinery City, he recognized these men as Ye Jiuge’s capable helpers.
“Young Master Gong,” Ye Yu greeted.
Unaccustomed, Luo Tian merely nodded.
“Inform Great Master Gong about the state of Bloodcloud Peak!” Ye Jiuge got down to business immediately.
“Yes. There are now more sentries patrolling the peak. Furthermore, the protective formation has been activated. We are only left with the option to mount a strong attack if we are to reach inside before the Blood Lotus Flowers can be reaped,” Ye Yu solemnly explained the situation.
“So what if we have to mount an attack? I want to witness the strength of the Bloodthirsty Sect’s protective formation,” Wang Haoqiang argued noisily.
The rest followed suit and began heckling. They did not take the Bloodthirsty Sect seriously at all.
Gong Xifan knew that Wang Haoqiang was trying to sow dissent, and he looked toward Ye Jiuge. When he saw that she was quiet, he said, “We will discuss the matter regarding the protective formation later. Everyone, let’s set up camp and take a break. Honglei, take charge of this. Eldest Miss, Luo Tian, and Ye Yu, please follow me.”
Having said so, he was about to bring Ye Jiuge, Luo Tian, and Ye Yu to the side. It was clear that they were going to have a secret discussion.
“Great Master Gong, how could you? Why can’t you speak in front of us? You are acting so mysterious. It’s as though you work with Ye Jiuge instead of us.” Yue Lingjun was resentful.
“That’s right.” Qiao Shaohua had complaints about this as well.
“Don’t spout nonsense. My uncle is merely being cautious,” Gong Honglei explained.
“Tsk. Why don’t you look into the mirror? You should see your faces when you look at Eldest Miss Ye. Why should she share her inside information with you ingrates?” Baili Moyun said with contempt.
“Baili Moyun, don’t talk as though you are not one of us,” Yue Lingjun snarled.
“Who’s part of you?” Baili Moyun rolled his eyes at Yue Lingjun. Then, holding Nangong Li’s shoulders, he said, “I am on the same team as A’li.”
Nangong Li emotionlessly shook off Baili Moyun’s hand and went to help Gong Honglei set up camp.
“A’li, you are making me look bad.” Baili Moyun’s expression was aggrieved.
“Chirp, chirp, chirp! Master, losers should stand up and jerk off without crying!” Xiao Tao comforted him compassionately.
“Xiao Tao is still the best.” Baili Moyun patted Xiao Tao’s head.
If he had been able to understand Xiao Tao’s vulgar words, he probably wouldn’t be smiling.
“Moyun, don’t play with your bird anymore. Come over quickly and help,” Gong Honglei called to him.
“I am coming.” Baili Moyun walked over.
Gong Xifan and Ye Jiuge stood on the hill. They could clearly see that the rivers Jing and Wei were dividing the members of the Spiritual Practitioner Alliance.
On one side, stood Nangong Li and Baili Moyun. On the other hand, were Yue Lingjun, Qiao Shaohua, Wang Haoqiang, Lin Yanxi, and the rest.
Gong Honglei, as Gong Xifan’s nephew, could be narrowly considered a centrist.
“It will be difficult to mount an attack on the Bloodthirsty Sect with this mob!” Ye Jiuge said unkindly.
As her understanding of these great sect disciples deepened, Ye Jiuge felt even more disdain for them. If she were to describe them in one sentence, it would be that they had egos more massive than the heavens and were always aiming for the sky, even though they had no abilities at all.
“They have been spoiled in the Lei Kingdom,” Gong Xifan said helplessly.
These people were indeed God’s favored in the Lei Kingdom, and it was natural for them to be cocky since they had yet to see the world.
The great sect’s Core Disciples would never be so shallow.
Gong Xifan had once been fortunate enough to see a Core Disciple from the Supreme Blade Sect out on a mission. His spirit was indeed incomparable, and it had been terrifying to see his blade pierce the skies.
However, it was useless to speak of it. The Core Disciples would never appear in an insignificant place like the Lei Kingdom. No matter how useless these individuals were, he could only put up with them and utilize them.
“Then let them taste the power of the protective formation. Conveniently, we can see what the two spies have up their sleeves,” Ye Jiuge recommended.
“Sure.” Gong Xifan nodded. It was about time to let these little guys with such exaggerated opinions of their abilities see the world.
Gong Xifan carefully asked Ye Yu and Luo Tian for the information about the protective formation. Then he began to plan and prepare.
Yue Lingjun and the rest did not know the secret behind it. When they heard that they would be attacking the Bloodthirsty Sect’s protective formation that night, they were all excitedly imagining how they would display their prowess impressively and break through the protective formation to get rid of the Bloodthirsty Patriarch.
Sitting on the hill and watching the mob talk idly about such an important matter, Ye Jiuge felt exhausted.
“If you don’t like them, then why don’t you just kick them aside?” Zi Shang suddenly appeared beside Ye Jiuge and sat down. Conveniently, he draped his arm around her shoulders.
“Didn’t you promise to keep a low profile?” Ye Jiuge moved her shoulders and shook off Zi Shang’s arm.
Zi Shang winked and reminded her kindly, “I just want to remind you. There are only five days left before it’s time for our Dual Cultivation.”
“Wait until the battle is over.” Ye Jiuge was in no mood to think about the Dual Cultivation!
“Roger that!” Zi Shang gave Ye Jiuge a kiss and disappeared again.
Meanwhile, on Bloodcloud Peak, Si Youyue sat idly on a large chair. Absent-mindedly, she asked the Bloodthirsty Patriarch, “The team from the Spiritual Practitioner Alliance is arriving. How do you plan on dealing with them?”
“Naturally, I will obey Elder Qiu Sen’s orders and eliminate all of them with a single stroke. When that moment comes, Lord Envoy, I will need your help,” said the Bloodthirsty Patriarch respectfully.
“Patriarch, don’t worry. I will definitely help.” Si Youyue gave a slight smile and said, “Leave the expert named Ye Zi to me. I will leave the small fry from the Spiritual Practitioner Alliance to you!”
When the Bloodthirsty Patriarch heard this, his expression turned unpleasant immediately. This was not what he had been thinking.
The Demonic Corpse was sufficient for dealing with Ye Zi. He wanted Si Youyue to handle the Spiritual Practitioner Alliance with him. However, it seemed that she did not wish to act at all.
“Patriarch, are you unhappy with the arrangement?” Si Youyue raised her long, thin eyebrows. With a smile, she said, “Then, let’s make an exchange. You can deal with Ye Zi while I deal with the Spiritual Practitioner Alliance.”
“Lord Envoy, you must be joking. How can I possibly deal with Ye Zi? Only you can take him on,” the Bloodthirsty Patriarch immediately fawned.
If the Demonic Corpse with the cultivation of an Intermediate Spiritual Master was unable to keep Ye Zi from leaving, then it would be impossible for him to do so.
Furthermore, if they could kill such a powerful Spiritual Practitioner, his remains would be superior grade raw materials for making a new Demonic Corpse.
If so, this Demonic Corpse could definitely be presented to Elder Qiu Sen, so there was no point for him to be proactive. It would be better for him to earnestly defend his Bloodcloud Peak!
