The words said by the elder of Huangfu Family was astonishing, especially to Tian Muyun. Such news had stirred up waves inside his heart. Despite his confidence, his heart began to pound against his chest. After all, Ouyang He didn’t really die.
Could it be that old bastard has found a way to save himself in the past two years? If that old bastard really has advanced to the Immortal King realm, he surely will come back for me.
Tian Muyun whispered in his mind. This incident was very doubtful, he still needed more answers.
“Could it be master hasn’t died yet? It was Master Tian who saw Master Ouyang fall with his own eyes.”
Daoist Yufeng frowned. He and Ouyang He had good relationship. Over the past two years, he had been feeling sorry for the tragic death of his good friend. If Ouyang He was still alive, there would’ve been three half-step Immortal King realm in Skycloud Pavilion now, and thus, their overall strength would exceed all the other major powers’.
From a far distance, Jiang Chen watched every expression in the scene with delight, especially when he saw Tian Muyun’s expression. He could imagine how fast Tian Muyun’s heart was beating right now.
Tian Muyun, I assume that you are very scared right now.
Jiang Chen smiled coldly. It seemed like his ploy had created an unexpected harvest, but he didn’t expect to depend on this act alone to change the whole situation of One-Line-Sky. Those experts weren’t fools after all, particularly Tian Muyun. He might seem very shocked right now, but it was only a matter of time before he figured out the loophole.
The patriarchs and sect master of the other three major powers also changed their facial expression drastically.
“Well, it turns out that old bastard Ouyang He is still alive. Tian Muyun, you and your master have done a good job in plotting against us. Now that Ouyang He has advanced to the Immortal King realm, I suppose it won’t be long before you and your master come and attack the three major powers and rule the entire One-Line-Sky.”
“Xuan Yangyi said coldly. A sense of crisis had already been stirred up not only from his heart, but also from Huangfu and Yun Family’s hearts. If Ouyang He didn’t die, he would become the only Immortal King expert in One-Line-Sky which was totally incomparable to a half-step Immortal King experts like them.
“Humph! You and your master do have a big plan. It seems like our three major powers must unite now, otherwise each of us will be devoured by you two!”
Yun Zhonghe harrumphed coldly. As they had concluded that Ouyang He wasn’t dead yet, their sense of danger was aroused.
“Everyone, I feel that something isn’t right in this incident.” Said Tian Muyun.
“What’s not right? Could that Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd be a fake one?” Huangfu Yaotian spoke.
“This can’t be right. The thief was actually Ouyang He? What’s going on?”
“Could it be that Ouyang He is still alive? and has already reached the Immortal King realm. In that case, the other three major powers will be in real danger.”
“It seems like One-Line-Sky isn’t as peaceful as it looks on the surface.”
Many bystanders were exclaiming with surprise because Ouyang He had already become a historic figure in One-Line-Sky.
“Two years ago, I was the one who witnessed that my master encountered an accident during his advancement to the Immortal King realm. At that time, his life essence was completely burnt, turning him into a crippled man. I have tried numerous means to heal his injuries but still failed. Later, he left One-Line-Sky to prepare for his death because there was no way for him to recover from that condition. If my master really is still alive and had advanced to the Immortal King realm, why hasn’t he appeared? Why would a dignified Immortal King expert steal the Regenerative Lotus stealthily? Plus, given my master’s temper, he would certainly punish these elders for being rude to him, but they are all still intact and as good as new.”
Said Tian Muyun. Everyone had to admit that Tian Muyun was truly a smart person. He was able to figure out the key point in an instant.
The atmosphere fell into silence. They weren’t idiots, they started to feel the same way as Tian Muyun.
“That’s true. There is indeed too many loopholes in today’s incident.”
An elder of Skycloud Pavilion felt reminded by Tian Muyun’s words. He began to recall the scene when Jiang Chen stole the Regenerative Lotus thoroughly.
“Speak, what are the loopholes?”
Said Tian Muyun. He was more concerned about the topic of Ouyang He compared to anyone here.
“Master, we have already guarded the Regenerative Lotus for such a long time and found no peculiar activity, but just as we decided to relax a bit, a large hand suddenly emerged from the void. I could still recall that hand clearly, it was the hand of a youth instead of Ouyang He’s.”
That elder suddenly thought of something important. As a peak elder in Skycloud Pavilion, he had seen Ouyang He a lot of times. Even though he didn’t understand Ouyang He as much as Tian Muyun, he was certain that the hand didn’t belong to Ouyang He.
“That’s right. That was the hand of a young man. It seemed as if he had hidden in the right spot, waiting for us to lower our guards. If it was Ouyang He, he wouldn’t have to go through all those troubles. Additionally, the person didn’t show himself in the end. If he was a powerful Immortal King expert or Ouyang He, he should’ve revealed himself.”
The other elder added the details that weren’t said.
“Then? What about the Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd?” Tian Muyun asked.
“We were deterred by the Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd, not daring to attack. Thinking about it now, it was really the Immortal Weapon of Master Ouyang, but there wasn’t the slightest bit of power in it. Its Qi felt like the child of some family. If it was wielded by a true Immortal King expert, a single wave was enough to cause massive destruction.”
“Yeah, I remember it too. In the end, that impostor spoke. Although his voice sounded relatively like Master Ouyang, if you listen to it closely, the voice was different from Master Ouyang’s. Dammit! We were tricked! That person wasn’t Master Ouyang at all.”
Several Golden Immortal experts felt enlightened all of a sudden when they thought of the key things and it gave them the sudden urge to spurt out blood. They were now certain that the thief wasn’t a powerful Immortal King expert, much less Ouyang He. They were tricked and dumbfounded because of that Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd.
