Chapter 1238: Unreasonable Demand

Decisive to kill!


Who would have thought that Dao Lord Desolate Martial was still chatting idly earlier on and would kill in the blink of an eye!


It was only at this moment that the crowd realized how strong Su Zimo was!


The Sect Master of Seven Kills Sect stood at the side and could not react in time as he watched the elder beside him die on the spot!


At that moment, what he felt was not anger, but fear!


The white sword qi brushed past him. Even he could not react to it, let alone the elder beside him!


In other words, if the sword qi were to slash at him, he would be a dead man!


Unknowingly, the Sect Master of Seven Kills Sect broke out in cold sweat.


However, due to his ident.i.ty, he pretended to be calm but could not say anything.


Although the ma.s.sive palace was filled with cultivators from the nine upper sects, four gentry clans and two aristocratic families, none of them dared to speak – everyone kept mum out of fear!


That single sword strike shocked all the cultivators present!


The sect masters of Stellar Luna Sect, Blaze Columbus Valley and the other upper sects were already seated and were naturally watching coldly by the sidelines.


As for the sect masters of Dark Ghost Sect, Blood Mist Sect and the other upper sects, they exchanged glances. Although they were displeased, they could not say anything.


Firstly, they feared Su Zimo’s methods!


They were certain that if they stood out right now, Dao Lord Desolate Martial would definitely dare to kill without any reservations!


Secondly, since the Sect Master of Seven Kills Sect did not say anything, there was no need for them to go against Su Zimo because of this.


In less than 10 minutes since the upper sects and aristocratic families entered the hall, Su Zimo had complete control of the situation!


Su Zimo’s expression was unchanged as he continued conversing with the sect masters of the other upper sects, instructing Tao Yao to take a seat for a few sect masters and family masters.


Before long, some upper sect masters and aristocratic family masters took their seats.


However, the sect masters of four upper sects and the family master of one gentry clan were left waiting by Su Zimo without giving any orders for their seats.


Dark Ghost Sect, Seven Kills Sect, Blood Mist Sect, Mystic Firmament Divine Cult and the Yuwen Clan!


Many cultivators understood instantly.


Including Dragon Tiger Sect, these six major sects had once sent Conjoint Body Mighty Figures to kill Dao Lord Desolate Martial!


Furthermore, all five of them had once headed to Ping Yang Town for Desolate Martial’s belongings!


Dao Lord Desolate Martial had no intention of becoming enemies with all the upper sects and aristocratic families – these were his only targets!


Most of the upper sect masters sat in their seats. However, the sect masters of Dark Ghost Sect and Seven Kills Sect stood in the main hall in a striking manner.


The Sect Master of Dark Ghost Sect and the others were uneasy but they forced themselves to remain calm.


Su Zimo did not even look at them and merely conversed merrily with the other sect masters and family masters of the upper sects and aristocratic families. He spoke of all sorts of interesting cultivation and ancient legends!


They seemed to have been forgotten and were left at the spot, unable to advance or retreat.


All of them were the masters of their respective upper sects and families!


In the cultivation world of the North Region, they had n.o.ble statuses and were revered everywhere they went.


But now, they had to endure such humiliation!


Every single breath they remained in the hall was a torture for them!


Even so, they did not dare to flick their sleeves and leave.


At the very least, from the looks of it, Dao Lord Desolate Martial had no intention of killing them.


Otherwise, given Desolate Martial’s temperament, he would have attacked long ago instead of dragging things out!


However, they did not know if Desolate Martial would kill them if they left now.


None of them dared to attempt and take the risk.


The situation was pressing and the five of them could only endure!


A long time later, Su Zimo s.h.i.+fted his gaze towards the five of them.


“Dark Ghost Sect, Seven Kills Sect, Blood Mist Sect, Mystic Firmament Divine Cult and Yuwen Clan.”


Su Zimo asked indifferently, “Do you know your crimes?”


His voice was neither fast nor slow. However, there was a tremendous pressure that made the five sect masters feel suffocated!


The Sect Master of Dark Ghost Sect grit his teeth and braced himself before shouting, “I don’t know how we offended you, Dao Lord. Please explain!”


The Sect Master of Mystic Firmament Divine Cult said in a deep voice as well, “Dao Lord Desolate Martial, Exalted Master Lang Yue who tried to kill you more than ten years ago had already announced his departure from Mystic Firmament Divine Cult. His actions have nothing to do with our sect.”


He must not admit to something like that.


The moment he admitted it, it would be used against him.


Dao Lord Desolate Martial would have an absolute reason to kill them here!


Furthermore, that was the truth.


Back then, the six Conjoint Body Mighty Figures had already announced that they were leaving the sect in advance because they were worried about implicating the sect!


If Dark Ghost Sect, Seven Kills Sect and the other upper sects insisted that they had nothing to do with this matter, n.o.body would have any proof.


“Oh,”


Su Zimo replied indifferently and did not get entangled with them on this matter. He continued to ask, “A few days ago, cultivators from your sects were stationed outside Ping Yang Town. What were you guys up to?”


“At that time, we believed that you would definitely be able to advance to the Dharma Characteristic realm. Therefore, we sent cultivators over to congratulate you.”


The Sect Master of Dark Ghost Sect and the others had long prepared excuses.


Of course, that reason was filled with loopholes and could only be used as a momentary defense right now.


They could not possibly tell Su Zimo that the cultivators of the sects were heading to Ping Yang Town to steal his treasures after he was dead!


None of them would survive if he said that!


“Oh,”


Su Zimo nodded. “Very good.”


Although Su Zimo looked so calm, the Sect Master of Dark Ghost Sect and the others felt their hearts skip a beat!


“In that case, you guys did nothing wrong. I was the one who was overthinking.”


Su Zimo murmured softly and a white sword qi gradually formed on his fingertip, emitting an extremely sharp aura!


Psst!


The pupils of the five men constricted and they gasped!


At that moment, they felt the aura of death!


‘Not good!’


‘Desolate Martial wanted to kill!’


The moment that thought crossed his mind, the Sect Master of Mystic Firmament Divine Cult was scared out of his wits and blurted, “I’m guilty! I’m guilty!”


“Oh?”


Su Zimo smiled.


The Sect Master of Mystic Firmament Divine Cult felt his mind race as he gulped. “No matter what, Exalted Master Lang Yue was a Mighty Figure of my cult. We have an undeniable responsibility!”


“Right, what should we do then?”


Su Zimo asked with a friendly smile.


“I-I’m willing to compensate you, Dao Lord.”


Pausing for a moment, the Sect Master of Mystic Firmament Divine Cult grit his teeth and said, “I’ll compensate you with a perfect-grade Dao Lord Dharmic weapon!”


Su Zimo retracted his smile. “More than ten years ago, Exalted Master Lang Yue nearly killed me. Sect master, do you mean that my life is only worth a perfect-grade Dao Lord Dharmic weapon?”


“N-No!”


The Sect Master of Mystic Firmament Divine Cult panicked and cold sweat poured down his forehead.


“We’ll hand over another hundred Grade 6 elixirs and Dao Lord Dharmic weapons!”


Grade 6 elixirs were elixirs that only Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords could consume. They were extremely powerful and difficult to refine – each elixir was precious!


The fact that the Sect Master of Mystic Firmament Divine Cult was willing to produce a hundred of them was proof of his sincerity.


Su Zimo’s expression was unchanged as he shook his head. “A thousand Grade 6 elixirs and a thousand Dao Lord Dharmic weapons above superior-grade. 10,000 tons of spirit stones as well!”


Even the Sect Master of Stellar Luna Sect and the others were shocked, let alone the Sect Master of Mystic Firmament Divine Cult – this was truly an unreasonable demand!
