"Old grouch, piss off!" When Kun Dao saw the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points attacking him, he shouted defiantly and threw a kick. Explosive golden energies appeared. His Qi was terrifying. The Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points' expression changed drastically. Kun Dao was extremely strong, stronger than him!
"Old grouch, initially, I wanted to give the Old Mentor face so I spared your life, but now, I won't be merciful! Die!" Kun Dao shouted explosively.
"You think we're going to spare your life? You betrayed your teacher!" shouted the Old Mentor back at him. When the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points had told him about Kun Dao, the Old Mentor had thought Kun Dao was a despicable person, but now he thought Kun Dao was even worse!
The Old Mentor attacked. He was so fast everybody heard a sonic boom when he moved. After pushing the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points aside, the Old Mentor threw a punch. Explosive energies appeared around him and the sky trembled.
All the Overlords' expressions changed in astonishment. How strong! The Old Mentor punched Kun Dao's left leg and destroyed it, crushing it to mush.
"AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Hurry up and run! AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Kun Dao looked miserable, pale and covered in cold sweat from the pain. Chieftain hastily took Kun Dao in his arms and left.
The Old Mentor didn't chase them. He clenched his fists and coughed blood. He was severely injured too. Kun Dao's kick injured him, but he didn't show it. He put his hand on his chest and coughed. The Old Mentor took a deep breath, turned around and looked at the other Overlords.
"What are you still doing here, everybody? Leave now, or do you want me to expel all of you myself?" shouted the Old Mentor, glaring at. Xiao Hun, Zhan Ling Yan, Bai Mu Xiao, and Godly Ancestor Zhu Jian.
The Overlords all flashed away and disappeared. They had hoped the Region of the Eight Corners would fall apart, and then they would have robbed them of some of their resources and treasures, but now the situation was more complex. Even though the Region of the Eight Corners was unstable, it wasn't on the verge of collapse.
The reason why Bai Mu Xiao had come was that he was worried Lin Feng had brought a demonic beast back into the World of Battles, but it seemed that wasn't the case at all. On the contrary, he was a human, so it didn't matter. He didn't need to offend off such strong cultivators. In addition, Overlords from the ancient times had had lots of children, so they might be related!
A perfect example was Ancestor Nü and the Old Mentor. He didn't need to offend them, so Bai Mu Xiao left the Region of the Eight Corners silently.
The Overlords who were still there were friends of the Region of the Eight Corners: Leader Jing Rui, Luo Zhao Sheng, Godly Ancestor Bei Jian, Godly Ancestor Zhu Jian, Ancestor Nü, and Ni Huang were all rulers from the Northwest. They all had to answer the call of duty.
At that moment, many people saw something they had never thought they would see: the Old Mentor suddenly coughing blood and paling!
His Qi became unstable and he fell down from the sky.
"Oh no, teacher!" The expression of the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points changed drastically. He flashed and caught the Old Mentor before landing on the ground.
"Teacher, are you alright?" asked the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points worriedly. Ancestor Nü, Jing Rui, and the others all surrounded the injured old man.
Ni Huang checked on him and frowned, everybody saw her expression. The Ancestor of the Tower pushed Jing Rui away and came to the front. He checked the Old Mentor's veins and cursed, "That fucking son of a bitch cut his meridians!"
"What? How is that possible?" Jing Rui and Luo Zhao Sheng gasped with astonishment. They both had trembling voices.
"You bastard, Kun Dao! I will kill you!" promised the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points. Kun Dao was a bastard, a traitor! The Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points would never forgive him. If he didn't kill him, he would never be able to die content!
"Come back, come..." the Old Mentor began angrily, but then he coughed up more blood and paled even more. The Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points didn't dare act recklessly, and could only stand there in front of the Old Mentor.
The Ancestor of the Tower took a deep breath, looking very grave. He knew what it meant. When the meridians of a cultivator were cut, they were not able to use Qi for a while. They had to recover first.
"What are you all doing circling him?" said the Ancestor of the Tower angrily. He checked the Old Mentor's acupuncture points, and golden lights covered the Old Mentor's body. The Old Mentor's Qi stabilized.
The Ancestor of the Tower took the Old Mentor away. The Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points asked, "Master, you...?"
"Don't worry. I'm taking your teacher back to the mountain. Take care of everybody else and remember, for the next six months, nobody can disturb your teacher!" declared the Ancestor of the Tower gravely. He disappeared with the Old Mentor.
Ancestor Nü was worried. The Old Mentor was almost like a teacher to her. Initially, she thought the Old Mentor was extraordinarily strong and that he could easily destroy Kun Dao, but now she understood that he was only about as strong as Kun Dao.
He might be even weaker than the Human Ancestor and the Buddhist Ancestor, but he was slightly stronger than Kun Dao. So that's how strong Overlords from the ancient times were? The Ancestor of the Tower seemed more mysterious and stronger than the Old Mentor...
"Everybody, I don't want anyone to know what happened here!" declared Ni Huang, frowning threateningly. She knew that everybody was going to be watching the Northwest from now on. The Region of the Eight Corners couldn't be as stable as it used to be without Lin Feng. All Ni Huang could do was try and keep the situation under control.
"Don't worry, Ni Huang. I will stay here and protect the Region of the Eight Corners for a while. Nobody will dare cause trouble. If anyone dares to try, I will not be merciful!" said Luo Zhao Sheng. As Lin Feng's older brother, he felt he had to help out.
"I'm staying here too," said Leader Jing Rui, clenching his fists. Everybody knew the situation was going to worsen in the Region of the Eight Corners. Some Overlords might come and threaten them!
"Alright. Lin Feng is lucky to have you," agreed the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points, nodding and bowing hand over fist. The Region of the Eight Corners was lucky!
"If you need anything, feel free to ask me," said Ancestor Nü. Of course, she couldn't stay there for too long, she had to go back to the Northeast. She wanted to punish Xiao Hun Hall. They were Kun Dao's allies, and she couldn't let them expand and become stronger.
"Alright, thank you, Ancestor Nü!" agreed the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points. He was very touched. Even if Chieftain and Kun Dao were traitors, Ancestor Nü, Ni Huang, and some other Overlords were upright individuals.
"Alright, I'm going back," Ni Huang said to everybody. She turned around and got ready to leave.
Everybody's expression changed abruptly, as someone came from the distance, puffing and breathing hard.
Song Chou Jiu and the others looked in that direction. Zhan Han was pale, holding a broken jade talisman with Zhan Gan written on it.
"Zhan Gan, Zhan Gan, he... he's dead!" shouted Zhan Han between breaths. He sounded terrified and sad, standing behind Song Chou Jiu and the others.
Everybody's expressions fell, especially that of the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points. He was extremely pale. He had asked Zhan Gan to protect Lin Zu, and leave with him. Could it be that...?
"What's going on? Why are you sure Zhan Gan is dead?" demanded the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points.
"This is his life talisman. Zhan Gan and I both have one. If something happens to us, like an injury, the talisman usually becomes less shiny and darker, but this time it broke directly..." said Zhan Han. His eyes were wet, and he started crying.
"Hurry up and inform everybody that we have to look for him everywhere in the Region of the Eight Corners! If he's alive, I want to see him; if he's dead, I want to see his corpse!" Song Chou Jiu shouted to all the disciples of the Region of the Eight Corners.
At that moment, the Region of the Eight Corners burst into frenzied motion. Initially, Ni Huang wanted to go back but now, she had to stay because she knew Zhan Gan was with Lin Feng's favorite son. Lin Zu had disappeared, and he might even be dead!
Lin Sheng Jiong, Lin Sheng Xie, and the others all started crying. Even though they weren't really on good terms with Lin Zu, he was still their brother. They didn't want him to be dead!
Lin Zhe Tian and Lin Qiong Sheng were both pale. They were so worried they could feel their pulses in their eyes. Their father had been kidnapped by Overlords from the South, and now Lin Zu might be in trouble. What a nightmare for Lin Feng!
Jing Rui and the others all went to look for the two missing people. Two days passed and everybody was still looking for Zhan Gan and Lin Zu. .
On the third day, someone finally found Zhan Gan's corpse in a forest in Shi Yu. Well, actually it wasn't a corpse. Zhan Gan had suffered a violent death. All they found was his head and one hand. His whole body had turned to mush.
They didn't find Lin Zu. He had disappeared!
The situation in the Region of the Eight Corners was now extremely depressed. Who had killed Zhan Gan and kidnapped Lin Zu? Why had they done that?
