Chapter 443: Tell Me, Where is the Treasure Map
Feng Ling'er of the Hehuan Sect and Qian Hun of the Soul Devourer Sect saw Qiu Sen coming over. After thinking for a moment, they bowed to Qiu Sen together.
When they saw a cloaked man standing behind Qiu Sen, they became puzzled.
Was this black cloak a Life's Origin Yin Corpse?
Gui Ming of the Ten Thousand Ghouls Sect and Li Kun of the Black Fiend Sect also misunderstood this to be the case and became very resentful.
If Elder Qiu Sen had brought in a Life's Origin Yin Corpse, why did he not summon it when they were fighting against the frenzy of corpses? They lost so many disciples.
Qiu Sen turned a blind eye to the angry gazes from the Elite Disciples of the four major Sects. He just wanted to quickly bring Yun Jiuge back to Qiu Ren Peak so that he could ask her about Qiu Shan.
Yun Jiuge was standing there, bored, when she suddenly realized that she had forgotten something very important.
"Everyone needs to hand over ten thousand Fiendish Pearls to leave the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm. If I don't even have one now, what do I do?" Yun Jiuge asked Zi Shang. Was it too late to start killing Fiendish Corpses?
"Qiu Sen will be very happy to help you solve this problem," Zi Shang said. If Qiu Sen was willing to help her, it would be a waste if she didn't avail of his help.
"That's right," Yun Jiuge immediately transmitted to Qiu Sen.
"I've them here," Qiu Sen said. 10,000 Fiendish Pearls were nothing. Even if she wanted 100,000 Fiendish Pearls, he would get them for her.
"Thank you, Elder," Yun Jiuge replied and waited for the Secret Realm to open.
It didn't take long for the dark red sky of the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm to appear.
A large, invisible hand tore through the sky and reached towards them.
Yun Jiuge suddenly felt an increase in pressure. The residual Holy Blood in her soul had become agitated as if it did not want to be touched by someone else.
Zi Shang discovered her unusual behavior. He grabbed her hand and sent a wave of Demonic Power to comfort her. He said, "It's okay, we're just passing through the magical weapon of the Secret Realm."
"I know," Yun Jiuge replied. She took a deep breath, exhaled and then suppressed the restless Holy Blood in her heart.
The giant hand grabbed everyone at the gathering place and passed through the clouds, finally leaving the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm.
"I'm out, I've finally come out."
"Woohoo, I'm still alive! That's great."
Several disciples from the five Sects couldn't help but let out a cry. It had been too oppressive and painful in the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm.
Yun Jiuge looked at the blue sky and white clouds above. A gentle breeze was blowing on the grass, and it felt like a different world.
Zi Shang quietly stood next to Yun Jiuge. No matter where she was, that was where he belonged.
At this time, after hearing the cries of his disciples, an Elder from the Black Fiend Sect went to Qiu Sen with a somber look on his face and asked, "Qiu Sen, what are you trying to do by going into the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm on your own in violation of the rules?"
"It's none of your business," Qiu Sen retorted stiffly.
"Your entry into the Secret Realm is none of our business, but if you treat the disciples of us four Sects as mere tools, then you're disrespecting us," an Elder from the Ten Thousand Ghouls Sect who was also very resentful spoke up.
The Peach Blossom Fairy of the Hehuan Sect, the Soul Devourer Sect, and Zhou Hua remained silent.
"Well, if I really wanted to use your disciples as mere tools, would they manage to get so many Fiendish Pearls?" Qiu Sen sneered as he answered. He continued, "I went in just to get Bloody Fiendish Pearls from the Flying Corpses. If your disciples had not begged me to save them, I couldn't be bothered about them."
"Elders, you've really misunderstood. At that time, there were strange changes in the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm, such as an ordinary Fiendish Corpse possessing the cultivation level of Iron Corpses. If it wasn't for Elder Qiu Sen's intervention, our whole army might have been wiped out," Si Youyue said sincerely.
"None of your Yin Corpse Sect disciples were harmed, so it's easy for you to say nice things," an Elder from the Ten Thousand Ghouls Sect replied in an unfriendly tone.
"Of course I'd protect my own disciples before protecting those timid disciples of yours. They're useless and just wanted to run away. If you're unhappy, look for me at the Yin Corpse Sect. I'll fight you," Qiu Sen answered. He was not afraid of these people and wanted to show them that the Yin Corpse Sect was not to be trifled with.
"Brother Qiu has misunderstood. Elder Gui and the others don't mean it that way," the Peach Blossom Fairy said with a smile. "The Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm has always been very dangerous, and any accident could happen in there. Although many disciples were harmed, the remaining disciples managed to successfully complete the task and return. I believe that this is because of Brother Qiu's help."
"That's right, Qiu Sen and I have known each other for so many years. I believe that he wasn't targeting our disciples. There must be some misunderstanding," Zhou Hua also chimed in.
Qian Hun had told him that Qiu Sen took better care of them in the Secret Realm.
"You're friends with him, so you'll defend him of course. Anyway, we'll not let this matter rest. Qiu Sen, just you wait!" The Black Fiend Sect looked at the Soul Devourer Sect and Hehuan Sect both standing on Qiu Sen's side. It wouldn't be good if he and the Ten Thousand Ghouls Sect continued to make a fuss. He decided to go back to the Sect first and file a complaint before going to the Yin Corpse Sect to demand an explanation.
The Ten Thousand Ghouls Sect thought the same and called their remaining disciples to board the White Bone Airship, leaving with the Black Fiend Sect.
In the blink of an eye, there were three groups left — Hehuan Sect, Soul Devourer Sect and Yin Corpse Sect.
The Peach Blossom Fairy looked at Yun Jiuge who was wearing a cloak and standing behind Qiu Sen. She smiled and said, "This should be Brother Qiu's Life's Origin Yin Corpse. I haven't seen you bring it out in so many years — why not show it to us today?"
After she spoke, a stream of pink Spiritual Light drifted from her hand and went into Yun Jiuge's cloak.
"Peach Blossom, don't go too far," Qiu Sen answered with a frown. He immediately broke the stream of pink Spiritual Light.
"I'm just kidding, why are you so serious?" The Peach Blossom Fairy replied. She was not embarrassed and instead started to act coquettish.
"It's getting late, and I still have something on. I'll take my leave," Qiu Sen said. He was not in a mood to deal with these two old friends. After releasing the Sect's black airship, he flew up together with Yun Jiuge.
The black airship flew in the direction of the Yin Corpse Sect.
Qiu Sen brought Yun Jiuge into the cabin. After laying down the Silent Shield, he asked coldly, "Tell me honestly, what did you see inside that little Secret Realm?"
"It seems that I can't hide anything from you, Elder. Actually, other than the Arcane Weapon mine, there was also a tall tower full of Fiendish Qi. Inside, there was a Golden Core Cultivator named Qiu Shan who captured me and wanted to latch on to my body in order to escape. But he was killed by my Yin Corpse afterwards. Later on, I somehow transformed into the body of a woman," Yun Jiuge told Qiu Shan, mixing together truth and lies.
"You killed Qiu Shan?" Qiu Sen asked, his eyes terrifyingly dark.
Yun Jiuge sighed. Did this guy actually still miss his brotherhood with Qiu Shan?
Tsk, if she knew this she would have said that Qiu Shan had already died in the tower, and that she just went in to collect the dead body.
But her words had already been spoken, so Yun Jiuge simply confessed, "Yes, I killed him. How dare he snatch my body!"
"That's brilliant," Qiu Sen said as he suddenly burst into laughter. This laughter was even more unnerving than his crying.
After he finished laughing, he suddenly raised his Bat Bone Spur and pointed at Yun Jiuge's throat.
"Tell me, where is the treasure map?"
