But at that moment, a sudden burst of jingle came from the outside and a young disciple rushed in with a long face.
“What happened?” With his eyes wide open, Goldwater Taoist had a sense of foreboding and he asked right away.
“Chief Master Immortal, Uncle Master Cheng, Uncle Master Cheng’s divine sense jade slip is broken!” that disciple looked panicked, his forehead sweating excessively due to anxiety, yet he dare not wipe it away.
“What?!” Goldwater Taoist found that hard to believe. He pounded the table and jumped to his feet. Intimidating power was emitted as the Fake Core Cultivator asked forlornly, “When did that happen? Have you found it out?”
That disciple’s face turned pale out of scare and his voice trembled, “Fifteen minutes ago, while I was patrolling the pavilion, Uncle Master Cheng’s divine sense jade slip suddenly cracked. I dare not delay and came directly to you.”
Goldwater Taoist drew a deep breath and calmed himself. He lowered his voice, “Go get your Uncle Master Zhang Duo here. And don’t tell anyone about this or you’ll be severely punished.”
After that disciple left in terror, Goldwater Taoist suddenly felt furious. He growled, “Whoever it was that killed Elder Cheng, I’ll extract and melt your soul and crush you into ashes.”
One hour later, a light shield landed outside. When it disappeared, a solemn, middle-aged man showed up and he rushed inside.
“Senior Brother, we need to be prudent. Junior Brother Cheng was killed, but before we find out what his killer is capable of, we can’t act rashly!” Sitting cross-legged next to Goldwater Taoist, that solemn, middle-aged man Zhang Duo said slowly after some careful thinking.
Having heard that, Goldwater Taoist nodded, “That’s my thought too. Junior Brother Cheng was in Shiao City and there are only several small sects in that area. They are too weak and they all know him, so they can’t be the one who did it.”
“Could it be that Junior Brother Cheng offended some powerful cultivator who passed by and got killed for it?”
Zhang Duo also looked uncertain, but then suddenly his face froze and fear could be seen in his eyes. He trembled, “Shiao City?”
Seeing that, Goldwater Taoist pondered a bit and thought of what recently had been going on within the Cultivation World. He couldn’t help crying out, “Could it be that Junior Brother Cheng provoked the Shiao Family?”
“Senior Brother, we need to be vigilant. For thousands of years, the Shiao Family has been under the protection of Luoyun Valley. When Junior Brother Cheng went there, he didn’t know that. If our speculation were true, and if Luoyun Valley were to vent their spleen to our Goldwater Sect, we’d be in serious trouble.
Hearing that, Goldwater Taoist’s complexion changed and at this moment, the color of the skin on his face turned dark instantly and he looked quite gloomy.
“Goldwater Taoist, get out and accept your doom.”
Driven by his magic power, his voice swept over like a huge wave and echoed through the valley.
Three light shields disappeared when Shiao Chen and the other two landed outside the gate of the Goldwater Sect.
“Who is out there asking for trouble? Beg for your death!” As he spoke, strong spiritual power erupted from inside the gate. Shrouded in light shields, the two Taoists landed across Shiao Chen and the other two men in an instant.
Through his divine sense, Goldwater Taoist recognized them as merely cultivators at the top level of middle-stage Foundation Establishment and he felt much reassured.
“What is it that brings you here to challenge our Goldwater Sect? Do you presume that we can’t rival you?” As he spoke, his spiritual power came out and his Taoist robe fluttered though there was no wind. The power of the Fake Core Cultivator was geared towards terrorizing those three mercilessly.
Elder Sun’s and Elder Ma’s faces turned a bit pale. Faced with such strong power, they couldn’t help looking towards Shiao Chen. Seeing that Shiao Chen remained calm as if he was not affected, they felt much relieved.
Goldwater Taoist saw how the two Elders reacted and that was when he realized that among those three men, the least impressive young man was the leader. Seeing that the young man was not intimidated by his power, he couldn’t help drawing his eyebrows together.
At this moment, Shiao Chen suddenly raised his head and the murderous intention could be seen in his eyes. He stretched out his hand and pointed and then cried out in a low voice, “Swift!”
Shiao Chen was in no mood for more talk with a man who was dead meat to him. And he took out his most deadly weapon: Dantian Treasure. This artifact could give out part of the power that a magic weapon of a Gold Core Cultivator possessed. With it, a Foundation Establishment Cultivator posed no threat to Shiao Chen.
“Damn!” The moment Shiao Chen attacked, Goldwater Taoist could only see a flash and he felt like his life was in dire, immediate danger. This feeling was so intense, way more intense than when he was pursued by several powerful cultivators when he explored the cave of an ancient cultivator.
“Swift!” This man had made it from a Rogue Cultivator to a Fake Core Cultivator and founded the Goldwater Sect. He was not a man to be underestimated. He had been through fights like this numerous times and he never failed to act quickly when it was a matter of life and death. Just in a second, he cast out an artifact. That was an earthy yellow, round ball. It gave out a dense, yellow flash and the smell of soil could be smelled.
Seeing that his ball was working, Goldwater Taoist felt relieved. He hunted and killed a tortoise at the top of the second level by chance, took its internal core and refined it to make this ball. The yellow light shield it emanated was highly defensive and saved his life in desperate situations many times.
A rattle was heard and Goldwater Taoist was a bit doubtful. Before he realized what was going on, he felt a sharp pain in his head and he blacked out and lost his consciousness.
Upon the light shield, a hole as small as a thin embroidery needle appeared and between Goldwater Taoist’s eyebrows was a small red dot. His breath faded away as quickly as a tide ebbed and his body twisted and collapsed on the ground.
In the blink of an eye, the Fake Core Cultivator is DEAD!
Elder Sun exchanged a glance with Elder Ma, both struck dumb with amazement. Though when they were at the Immortal Welcoming Arena, they knew that Shiao Chen had a treasure that could match a magic weapon and that he seriously injured Elder Moli with it, they only realized it now that everyone had been underrating Shiao Chen. With this artifact, no one would be his rival unless they were Gold Core Cultivators.
After that needle-shaped Dantian Treasure killed Goldwater Taoist, it immediately flew back to Shiao Chen’s Dantian where it became more transparent. It seemed that it might be gone for good after being used for several times more.
With just one move, Shiao Chen killed Goldwater Taoist. Zhang Duo was paralyzed with terror. Seeing that Shiao Chen was staring at him, he let out a cry and a light shield surrounded him. He was fleeing without even putting up a fight.
“Elder Ma, Elder Sun, I’ll leave that man to you.” As he spoke, a light shield flashed and he was heading towards the inside of the Goldwater Sect buildings. If an enemy wasn’t extinguished entirely, they might rise again to be potential threats. As Shiao Chen thought of how the Qingling Sect went after Li Xiaoyi for revenge, he felt an increasing urge to kill them all.
With their Chief Master Immortal killed in an instant and their Uncle Master Zhang Duo running away, the whole Goldwater Sect was chaotic and countless men were running outside.
“Hmm.” As he flew, Shiao Chen frowned and fixed his gaze on a panic-stricken man in his twenties.
Seeing that Shiao Chen was staring at him, that man was terrified. He gritted his teeth and his body gave out a light shield as he ran outside frenziedly, but before he flew more than dozens of meters, his whole body started shaking and he fell on the ground with his head tilted and his vitality gone abruptly and completely.
