The conversation in the courtyard continued.
However, the dialogue power, dynamic between the two seemed to gradually reverse.
Xuan Yinzi looked coldly at Luo Xiao and said, "I beat the grass to scare the snake because without it, how could you expose this big incriminating evidence? You killed the leader of Qing Feng Enterprise and set up a killing trap to silence people inside the City of Immortals. With this definitive evidence, even if your stupid Master wants to protect you, he could not."
Hearing this, all of Luo Xiao's in-control expressions finally fell and were replaced with heavy doubts.
"So, you've been laying this one out a long time ago. But... how did you find out? Even my Master couldn't find the slightest clue, so how could you?"
Xuan Yinzi couldn't help but laugh, "How? If you must know, it's because we are actually one kind of people, so what you are thinking about, would I not know?"
Luo Xiao said, "One kind of people? We? What a joke!"
"A joke? Do you think only you have the bloodline of the God of War Blood?"
This time, Luo Xiao's expression immediately changed, "Do you also have the God of War Blood?"
"Yes, that's why I'm very clear about what people of this lineage will do in a hurry. You've always targeted Wang Lu as your opponent, but seeing him throw you further and further behind, so much so that you even lose the qualification to compete with him on the stage, it's natural for you to change side."
"In fact, the owner of God of War Blood is not afraid of failure. Even if you fail repeatedly, as long as you keep the fighting spirit, you will have the opportunity to start again. Your journey at Hua Yan School was not smooth either. It took you several years to become the lead in the inner court. But Wang Lu's situation is different because you soon discovered that you would no longer have the chance to theoretically defeat him."
Luo Xiao said in a cold voice, "You have too much faith in Wang Lu."
"It is you who have too much confidence in Wang Lu. It is precisely because you are convinced that Wang Lu has a greater advantage over you that there is no way to make up for it, so you let go of everything and take risks." When Xuan Yinzi said this, there was a little more emotion in his plain tone, "As a fellow of the same lineage, I have to admit that your choice is right."
"Oh? It sounds like you really understand what I'm thinking..."
"Wang Lu's invincibility is based on the premise that you and him are in the camp of the Union of Ten Thousand Immortals. In it, resources are limited. If Wang Lu takes more, there would be less left for you. He has already taken the only shortcut, and no matter how well you do, it is impossible for you to have instant success in Jindan Stage like him. Therefore, only by jumping out of the framework of the Union of Ten Thousand Immortals can you struggle to win. But, outside the union, you don't have much choice."
"The first is the evil path. Although there's the Union of Ten Thousand Immortals in the Nine Regions, evil sects still occupy a vast area. The demon nest in the Far East is also famous."
Luo Xiao sneered, "Even the demon world is already destroyed, what can the evil sects in Nine Regions do? It is clear that the City of Immortals was developed by the Union of Ten Thousand Immortals, yet those evil cultivators rushed out of their evil nests to seek cooperation. It could be seen that their foundation is already unstable, and it would be gradually eroded and even destroyed by the Union of Ten Thousand Immortals, which will happen soon."
Xuan Yinzi said, "The second is the Earth Immortals..."
Luo Xiao shook his head, "Earth Immortals seem to be powerful and invincible, but there are only a few of them. They're like dragons without a head. Wang Lu alone could toy with them with ease. These people can't do anything."
Xuan Yinzi sneered and said, "These paths are not feasible. So there is only the third path, the Fallen Immortals."
Luo Xiao was silent for a moment, and then said, "Since you could tell that the answer is the Fallen Immortals... it seems that you really can understand what I am thinking. However, since you knew that I chose to join the Fallen Immortal camp, why would you dare to provoke me? Don't you know how powerful the Fallen Immortals are?"
Xuan Yinzi said, "In the past, the True Immortals in the upper realm naturally possessed great remarkable abilities, but they were not necessarily omnipotent. Otherwise, what is the need for them to accept the devotion of an insignificant ant like you? If even you can get great benefits from the hands of the Fallen Immortals, it only means that they are unavailable."
Luo Xiao scoffed, "Yes, they have the remarkable ability to destroy the world, but now they are still restricted by a lot of constraints, it is difficult to display it in the Nine Regions. So they need the devotion of local people like me to help them complete the layout. As for whether I am just an insignificant ant or a precious chess piece, we can wait and see for that to unfold."
"Wait and see? No need to be that troublesome. I can guess what you want to do." Xuan Yinzi sneered, "If you commit to the Fallen Immortal camp, then you must show that you can win the trust of others. But with your current condition, only Four Element Supreme who wants to invest in you. Although he has a grumpy character, he trusts his own people very much, and often doing things thoughtlessly, so it's not difficult for you to make a move on him. But I have a question to ask you: Luo Xiao, in my impression, although you're not a good person, you at least still have your own bottom line. Even if you can't say that the favor Four Element Supreme has given you is as heavy as a mountain, he is at least could be counted as a nobleman for you. From Hua Yan School to Four Element Sect, this saves you at least ten years of hard work. What's more, being a Master for a day is the same as having a father for life, don't you feel guilty of killing your own father for selfish reasons?"
"..." Luo Xiao narrowed his eyes and said in a cold voice, "Xuan Yinzi, your nonsense is too many."
Xuan Yinzi said, "Then I'll say something useful... From a moment ago up until now, you ought to spend a lot of effort to find the body of that little mouse. Have you found it? Or only you alone suffice?"
Luo Xiao was silent for a moment and said, "Do you want to make a deal with me? Otherwise, you don't have to waste your time here talking to me. Let's see if I understand you correctly: You know that I betrayed the Nine Regions, which is an unpardonable offense, yet you still want to make a deal with me... don't tell me that you are interested in joining the Fallen Immortal camp?"
Hearing this, Shu Si, who was confined to the puppet, was shocked.
'Dead Face, what the hell are you doing!?'
"Fallen Immortal?" Xuan Yinzi sneered a few times and said, "If I am interested in joining the Fallen Immortal, I wouldn't have come to you for it. Do you think that you are the only one who is smart and knows how to take a shortcut? Don't deceive yourself. You're just a bereaved dog driven to the wall by Wang Lu."
Luo Xiao nodded and said no more. He held his right hand in the air and suddenly the flames in the courtyard died out silently. However, Xuan Yinzi, whose power was close to the Deity Stage, was tied by a rope that seemed to be looming and glittering with gold and silver.
"What you describe might not necessarily just me. Wow, you're tough."
Xuan Yinzi was bound by the rope. His whole body's True Yuan was imprisoned, and could not move even a hair. Yet, his expression remained the same. He even showed a faint smile.
"Luo Xiao, use your brain. How could you fall into the same hole twice? Have you forgotten the Jade Bone Skill?"
Luo Xiao's expression changed. He quickly raised another hand to trap Xuan Yinzi even tighter.
But it was a step too late. Amidst Xuan Yinzi's laughter, his eyebrows glowed bright, as if he was lighting up a sun.
"Self Yuanying explosion, are you crazy?"
Luo Xiao didn't expect that this cultivator named Xuan Yinzi to be this fierce!
At the critical moment, Luo Xiao immediately changed his tactic and pulled out a blood-stained scroll. The scroll was yellow and withered, but once it was unfolded, it was full of vitality, as if it contained a world. In an instant, Xuan Yinzi was drawn into it.
The scroll trapped Xuan Yinzi in it and then flew back to Luo Xiao's hand. When Luo Xiao took the scroll, he felt a slight tremor in the palm of his hand. He knew that this was the impact of Xuan Yinzi's self explosion. It was really powerful... Unfortunately, for the scroll, it could be easily resolved with just a slight tremor.
"What a pity." Luo Xiao shook his head, looking rather regretful.
In fact, Luo Xiao didn't really want to kill Xuan Yinzi. Although when he first set up the killing quarter here, he wanted to kill people. But after their conversation, Luo Xiao felt that this man, who also had the lineage of the God of War Blood, might be able to play an unexpected role in the future, like himself.
That was why he used the immortal rope instead of other magical weapons with stronger killing power. He even had made a decision in his mind at that time that, after he restrained Xuan Yinzi, he would spend some thoughts on how to excuse him before the Fallen Immortal... Who knew, this Xuan Yinzi decisively detonated his Yuanying and chose death!
According to the information, these cultivators who came from Qing Ming Dojo was unknown and behaved in a low-key manner. He really didn't look like a man who could do such a thing. Regrettably... what a pity.
After having dealt with Xuan Yinzi, Luo Xiao was a bit sluggish. He came here to kill people to silence the witness, so as not to let out the information of the Fallen Immortals too early. Although the goal had been achieved, it had left both regret and hidden danger.
He then turned his head and looked at the puppet that was emblazoned with Shu Si's residual soul.
This puppet was originally used to lure Xuan Yinzi into the trap. But now that Xuan Yinzi was dead, this bait was useless.
But he still kept it.
After all, the puppet was the chief manager of Qing Feng Enterprise. Dead Face was gone, and the only person who knew his existence was Shu Si. On the other hand, there were too many people who knew Shu Si. If Shu Si just disappeared for no reason, it might cause unnecessary trouble.
Luo Xiao said in an ironic tone, "The one who should've lived didn't survive, but the one who should have died couldn't die immediately."
As he spoke, from outside the courtyard, a golden shadow drifted in.
A red and gold clothed strong man appeared before Luo Xiao. A comatose young man was on that man's shoulder.
That comatose young man was precisely Shu Si's body!
After the red and gold clothed strong man put down the young man, he went away quietly, leaving only one sentence, "Be careful next time!"
Luo Xiao shrugged and acted as if nothing had happened, but his back was soaked with cold sweat.
It was not easy to deal with the Fallen Immortal...
At the same time, a strange visitor came to the courtyard of the Chief Planner of the Organizing Committee in the Immortal Five Area.
The man appeared to be in his early thirties. He was tall and handsome, and especially impressive with his pair of bright and clever eyes.
What was more surprising was his red and white robe.
Because that was the uniform of the successor disciple of Spirit Sword Sect.
