“What about your brother and the others? Are you not going to bring them with you?” Xuanyuan Mo Ze asked. If she didn’t bring them, someone with Guan Xilin’s cultivation strength wouldn’t be able to make it up the Immortal Ascension Ladder and into the Mystical Glory Gate in five years.
Feng Jiu sighed softly. “That did cross my mind, but after giving it some more thought, he’d better improve on his strength here instead. I have high hopes that he made it to the top of the Immortal Ascension Ladder on his own. If he goes up there by himself, I think he has a better chance of survival. My guess is that Mo Chen will join us if he learns of our plans.”
Xuanyuan Mo Ze spoke without hesitation. “He is Old Man Tianji’s disciple. He would be better off staying here. He also seems to exude an otherworldly aura. What will he be able to do there?”
“I haven’t told him whether or not I’m going.” She stood up after she finished speaking and said, “Let’s head home! Go back and play with Hao’er.”
Xuanyuan Mo Ze’s lips curved slightly upward. “Mm-hmm.” He also stood up, took her hand, and walked out.
The carriage was ready outside. Just as Feng Jiu was about to board, a group of more than 20 people appeared from the sky on their flying swords, carrying bows and arrows in their hands. The outermost part of their arrows’ tips was ablaze with flame. Their spirit energy breath surged up as they approached Feng Jiu and Heavenly Pill Tower. In this group of over 20 people, one group is moving in one direction, while another group is moving in the opposite direction.
As they drew the bow and arrow in their hands, several arrows flew out. As those arrows were about to enter the Heavenly Pill Tower, a protective shield sprang out from within. Those blazing arrows were deflected by the protective shield formed by spirit energy and were blocked outside the Heavenly Pill Tower. At the same time, the cultivators poured out of the tower, making it their centre of protection.
Feng Jiu felt relieved as she watched this scene. When she saw the group that arrived on flying swords split off in the opposite direction, she could not help feeling uneasy.
“Those people seem to be heading in the direction of the house. Hao’er is still at home. I must go back and check.”
When Xuanyuan Mo Ze heard this, he looked at those people and said, “I’ll go back with you.”
“But, here…” She hesitated as she gazed at the Heavenly Pill Tower.
“It’s alright, they can keep it safe.” Xuanyuan Mo Ze spoke softly. “How can you be certain to entrust them with the protection of Heavenly Pill Tower if they cannot protect it? Allow them to try!”
Feng Jiu nodded. Feng Jiu nodded. She then turned around and gave Leng Hua and the others the following orders: “Destroy the enemy! Protect Heavenly Pill Tower!”
“Yes!” Everyone responded. They noticed that she and Hell’s Lord had lifted their vital energy and were on their way to Feng Manor.
When the dark guards and Strong Exponents in Heavenly Pill Tower saw that they were gone, they launched a series of attacks against the dozen people who were besieging them from mid-air…
Gray Wolf was squatting at a certain street corner when he learned of the incident at Heavenly Pill Tower. As soon as he heard the people on the street spreading the news, he jumped up and asked the dark guard to undo the seal on his spirit energy before rushing to Heavenly Pill Tower.
The two men arrived together and, upon assessing the situation, joined the fight immediately.
When Xuanyuan Mo Ze and Feng Jiu arrived at Feng Manor, the entire Manor was also covered by a protective shield. As they descended from the sky, they quickly assessed the situation inside the Manor.
