Please, I Really Didn’t Want To Fall in Love With My Master! - Chapter 79
Chapter 79: Sword Drawn Against an Emperor Powerhouse!
Flying Cloud Peak…
Supreme Dao Palace…
A group of people was gathered here.
The atmosphere was solemn and silent.
At the center of the hall was a black-robed old man with a crane-haired young face sitting at the very top.
It was none other than the Sect Master of the Supreme Dao Palace, Chen Yundao.
Beneath the stage, the similarly black-robed Venerable Hao Yue said, “Sect Leader, I’ve already investigated the matter. The Devil Sect’s Sheng Zi Li Ran has indeed entered the secret realm!”
Chen Yun asked, “Is he related to Song Qingsong’s death?”
Venerable Hao Yue snorted coldly. “According to those in the same group, the ones who entered the final trial were Yue Jianli, Li Ran, and Qingsong. In the end, only my disciple died, yet the two of them were safe and sound!”
“Hao Yue, what do you mean by that?”
The Myriad Sword Pavilion Sect Elder beside him said unhappily, “Could it be that you want to say that our sect’s chief disciple is colluding with a devil sect monster?”
“Let’s ask Chief Yue what’s going on!” Venerable Hao Yue snorted coldly.
Yue Jianli was dressed in green. She held the sword in her arms and stood there quietly.
A trace of displeasure flashed in her lowered eyes when she heard the words “Devil Sect Monster”.
“Chief Yue, what exactly happened in the final trial? Was Song Qingsong killed by Li Ran?”
His voice was calm and peaceful, but it carried a trace of indescribable pressure.
Yue Jianli raised her head and said indifferently, “Song Qingsong indeed died in the final trial, but it has nothing to do with Li Ran.”
“Not Li Ran?”
Venerable Hao Yue frowned, “Then how did my disciple die?”
Yue Jianli said, “In the final trial, the three of us fought a decisive battle against the ancient demon, and Song Qingsong was killed on the spot by the berserk demon. It was that simple.”
As soon as these words were spoken, a wave of low cries sounded out in the hall.
“There’s an ancient beast?”
“This secret realm was actually so dangerous?”
Even Venerable Hao Yue was shocked. He shook his head and asked, “That’s impossible! Even if the beast has the most diluted bloodline, it’s still not something that can be fought against by a Golden Core Realm cultivator. How did you two survive?”
Yue Jianli sneered and asked, “You mean we should die alongside Song Qingsong?”
Venerable Hao Yue’s breathing became sluggish. “That’s not what I meant…”
Yue Jianli said, “It was killed by me and Li Ran working together. After the final trial, both of us ran out of qi and went our separate ways.”
Her words contained both the truth and lie, making it very difficult for people to find loopholes in her statement.
Venerable Hao Yue’s eyes flickered. “Then where have you been for a few days after you left the secret realm?”
Yue Jianli raised her eyebrows and said, “This is my personal matter. There’s no need for me to report it to you.”
Venerable Hao Yue’s eyes were cold. “Could you be with Li Ran?”
“Hao Yue!” The Myriad Sword Pavilion Elder angrily rebuked, “You’re framing me. Your disciple isn’t strong enough to live, so why are you throwing dirty water at my Myriad Sword Pavilion?”
Venerable Hao Yue immediately became angry when he heard that. He cupped his hands to the stage and said, “Sect leader, I think the death of Qingsong is rather strange! Sect Master, please take action and investigate Yue Jianli’s memories. Only then will the truth be revealed!”
Yue Jianli’s eyes instantly turned cold.
If she was to be tested, everything would be over.
“Chief Yue, this action can prove your innocence. Do you have any objections?”
“Of course!” Yue Jianli’s voice was piercingly cold. “Why would I need to prove my innocence to you? Immortal destinies were bound to be accompanied by danger. Why should someone be blamed for another’s death?!”
As soon as her words were spoken, the hall fell silent.
Chen Yundao said indifferently, “I only want the truth.”
“I’ve already told you the truth!” Yue Jianli said angrily, “Because your sect’s disciple died, you want to investigate my memories and see my trump cards? Your Supreme Dao Palace is really impressive. Do you really think that my Myriad Sword Sect is a weakling!”
With a push of her thumb, her sword qi surged.
Faced with an Emperor-level expert, she abruptly unsheathed herself.
The atmosphere was extremely solemn.
Everyone was dumbstruck by this scene.
Yue Jianli hadn’t broken through the Golden Core Realm, yet she dared to draw her sword against an Emperor Rank expert?!
She must be tired of living!
Even the Myriad Swords Pavilion Elder was startled as he gulped nervously.
Chen Yundao leaned against the back of the chair. His face was covered by a shadow and his expression was not clearly seen.
After a long time, he said indifferently, “Chief Yue is right. This is indeed inappropriate. I was rash.”
Hao Yue’s expression immediately changed.
At this moment, a disciple ran in. “Chief, I have a letter for you!”
Chen Yundao frowned and said, “Who wrote this letter to make you so flustered.”
The disciple looked around and swallowed. “Yes, it’s from Leng Wuyan…”
The hall was in an uproar.
Even Chen Yundao, who had always been calm, suddenly stood up, his expression extremely shocked.
“Leng Wuyan sent me a letter? This… bring the letter.”
“Yes!“ The disciple hastily handed over the letter.
Chen Yundao took out the jade and poured his qi into it. He listened carefully.
Then, he slowly returned to his chair.
After a moment of silence, he said, “Chief Yue probably won’t lie. Since that’s the case, there’s no need to mention it anymore.”
“Sect Leader…” Hao Yue became anxious.
Chen Yundao raised his hand and snapped, “Send everyone from the Myriad Sword Pavilion down the mountain.”
The nearby elder responded and guided Yue Jianli and the others out of the hall.
The hall fell silent.
Venerable Hao Yue whispered, “Sect leader, Qingsong’s death is strange…”
He felt that this matter had something to do with Li Ran!
Chen Yundao shook his head and said, “But you don’t have any proof. Let’s stop here!”
“Also, the matter of you dealing with Li Ran has already reached Leng Wuyan’s ears. I advise you to stay in seclusion in the sect and try not to leave.”
“Leng Wuyan?” Hao Yue’s throat tightened slightly.
She received this news too quickly!
“I know…” Hao Yue was dejected.
Yue Jianli and the others descended from the mountain.
“Jianli, you were too impulsive just now. You actually dared to draw your sword against Chen Yundao!”
That was an Emperor powerhouse! He could destroy them with a single finger!
Yue Jianli similarly heaved a sigh of relief.
It was a lie to say that she was not afraid.
However, the more time she spent hesitating, the more chance she might get caught.
If Chen Yundao were to notice something, then it would be a calamity.
At this moment, the conversation between the disciples of the Supreme Dao Palace drew her attention.
“Did you know that Xiao Qingge’s cultivation has recovered!”
“I heard from my relatives in Wuyang City that it’s the truth! Furthermore, it was related to Devil Sheng Zi Li Ran!”
“Oh? What does it have to do with that demon?”
“Xiao Qingge and Li Ran are to be married. It was Li Ran who used immortal materials, the spirit fruit, to recover her talent!”
“Is that for real?”
Yue Jianli’s hand on her sword trembled.
“So he stole my fruit for the sake of another woman!”
“I’m risking my life for him here, but he’s courting girls…”
“This bad egg…” Yue Jianli gritted her teeth and said, “Elder, you can go back first, I have to go somewhere else.”
The elder was stunned. “Where are you going?”
