Chapter 844 Hall Master Xi Guang
Tianyuan Utopia, Fire Pavilion.
Inside the main pavilion building.
Lu Xiao stood with his hands folded behind his back in front of the railing, looking at the surroundings with an indifferent look. After more than a month, the atmosphere in the Fire Pavilion was evidently much calmer than before. He knew that this was because the four mother runes of the Wind Pavilion were selling very well.
And with the increasing popularity of the four mother runes, there were more and more people who opposed the ban he had issued.
Previously, Han Yuan had come to complain to him, saying that he could no longer control the people on the Mountain Pavilion side. If the ban on the four mother runes continued, even his position as the pavilion master of the Mountain Pavilion would become unstable.
Lu Xiao comforted him a little, asked him to hold on a little longer, and then convinced Han Yuan to leave.
But even though he had persuaded Han Yuan to leave, Lu Xiao understood that the four mother runes had turned into a sword hanging above the heads of his two pavilions. It could cause serious injury at any time.
But if he let the four mother runes enter the Fire and Mountain Pavilions, the Mark Capturing Rune would inevitably suffer devastating damage. After all, the four mother runes were twice as effective as the Mark Capturing Rune for the same price. Anyone would know what decision to make.
Although most of the high-level members in the Fire Pavilion were the celestial prides of the Celestial Spirit Sect, in truth, there were more people from various other sects and factions within the Tianyuan Region. If Lu Xiao forcibly suppressed them, they would eventually be able to join the Wind Pavilion.
"That Zhou Yuan..."
Lu Xiao's face was dark. When he met Zhou Yuan, he never thought that an ordinary-looking newcomer would cause him such a big problem.
But fortunately, Zhou Yuan will not be able to cause any more trouble.
Fang Ao and the others should have already succeeded, right? I wonder if Zhu Lian has obtained the basic material to refine the four mother runes? If you have done so, then the current situation can be reversed in the blink of an eye.
Of course, even if he didn't, it didn't matter. As long as Zhou Yuan was gone, the Wind Pavilion would no longer be able to refine the four mother runes, and the Fire Pavilion's Mark Capturing Rune would once again become the only option on the market.
Lu Xiao breathed a sigh of relief, a hint of pity in his eyes.
Zhou Yuan, your skills are not bad, but unfortunately you don't have enough foresight. I hope you will be smarter in your next life. Don't think that you can act recklessly just because you have some ability.
Just as this thought came to Lu Xiao's mind, an extremely terrifying Genesis Qi pressure fell from the sky and directly covered the entire Wind Island. Countless members of the Fire Pavilion raised their heads in shock.
A beam of Genesis Qi descended from the sky, its pressure causing countless people to tremble in fear.
Lu Xiao's complexion changed slightly when he felt the pressure. Before he could speak, he saw Genesis Qi rush towards him and appear beside him within a few breaths.
The lightning dispersed, revealing a middle-aged man dressed in a silver robe. There was a cold and stern look on his face, and in his eyes were fragments of silver light. When the man looked with those eyes, Lu Xiao felt like being stung by needles.
At first, Lu Xiao was surprised, but then he immediately made a cupped fist salute and saluted loudly: “Disciple Lu Xiao pays homage to Hall Master Xi Guang.”
The person who had appeared was the hall master of one of the nine palace halls of the Heavenly Spirit Sect, Xi Guang!
The middle-aged man, known as Hall Master Xi Guang, coldly looked at Lu Xiao and shouted, “Where is Fang Ao and the others?”
Lu Xiao was obviously taken aback by the question, but still responded respectfully, "Junior Brother Fang Ao is on a mission right now."
Seeing Xi Guang's attitude and reaction, Lu Xiao felt uneasiness fill his heart and his eyes flashed. He asked cautiously, "Is there anything Hall Master Xi Guang wants to ask?"
Xi Guang stretched out his hand and opened his palm, revealing a silver jade tablet. The jade slip was broken and dull.
Seeing the broken silver jade tablet, Lu Xiao felt his mind suddenly explode. Even a calm person like him shouted uncontrollably, “How is this possible?”
The silver jade tablet was one of the spiritual jade tablets from Hall of Silver Light. The one before him naturally belonged to Fang Ao.
A spiritual jade tablet represented the status of his master, and if it broke and dimmed, it indicated that his master was dead!
In other words, Fang Ao had died?
No wonder Xi Guang came here so aggressively!
Lu Xiao felt a sea overturn in his heart and a headache.
Fang Ao went to kill Zhou Yuan with many people, did they fail? But how is it possible? Zhou Yuan is only slightly stronger than Chen Beifeng and is no match for Fang Ao!
Xi Guang looked at Lu Xiao, who had a distressed expression on his face, and shouted, "What happened?"
Lu Xiao took two steps back when he met Hall Master Xi Guang's cold and biting gaze. He felt a chill run down his spine. He knew that Hall Master Xi Guang was known for being unreasonable and fierce in the Heavenly Spirit Sect, and Fang Ao also became angry with him. If he became enraged, Lu Xiao would suffer the consequences even though Lu Xiao was a member of the Heavenly Spirit Sect.
In the end, he didn't dare to hide anything from her. “Fang Ao took a few people with him to assassinate the Wind Pavilion master, Zhou Yuan. Now that an accident has occurred, it must be related to Zhou Yuan.”
Then, he immediately told him about Zhou Yuan and the matter of the four mother runes. After all, this was the reason for his actions.
“A new pavilion master dared to kill my disciple? Who does he think he is?!" Palpable killing intent shot out of Xi Guang's eyes. In his opinion, even if Fang Ao was the one who had tried to assassinate Zhou Yuan and failed, Zhou Yuan should have stood up to him. and return Fang Ao to him for punishment. But Zhou Yuan had boldly taken action himself! He just didn't give it any importance, Hall Master Xi Guang!
As for whether Fang Ao finally killed Zhou Yuan or not, he didn't care. What status did their Heavenly Spirit Sect have in the Tianyuan Region? So what if Fang Ao managed to kill the pavilion master of the Wind Pavilion? At that time, Xi Guang would at most ask Fang Ao to resign from his position as deputy pavilion master and take him back to the Hall of Silver Light to reflect on his actions.
Seeing that Xi Guang was about to burst out with anger, Liu Xiao hurriedly tried to calm him down: “But this matter is not certain yet. The breaking of Junior Brother Fang Ao's spirit jade tablet might have been an accident. Maybe we should wait a little longer. If their mission was successful, they should return soon. Then everything will be clear.”
“Hallmaster Xi Guang also knows Fang Ao’s strength. It's hard to imagine that I would lose to Zhou Yuan."
In fact, Lu Xiao had deep doubts in his heart. He really didn't want to believe that Zhou Yuan had eliminated Fang Ao. After all, his plan was foolproof, so even if Fang Ao's broken spirit jade tablet was right in front of him, he still couldn't believe it.
Xi Guang pondered silently. In truth, he also did not believe that a disciple he thought highly of would lose to a child in the middle stage of Divine Dwelling.
"Okay, I'll wait a little longer." With an evil gleam in his eyes, Hall Master Xi Guang said, “If that boy really did it, you must remember to say that it was not you who planned to murder him. Say that Fang Ao and the others had gone on a mission and had a dispute with Zhou Yuan. In the end, Zhou Yuan had mercilessly killed Fang Ao and everyone else."
Lu Xiao's eyes flashed. Hall Master Xi Guang was trying to find a reason for his actions. They only needed to blame Zhou Yuan, and even if they killed Zhou Yuan, their actions would be justified.
Although Hall Master Xi Guang had a fierce personality, he was obviously quite scheming.
Lu Xiao nodded quickly and then welcomed Hall Master Xi Guang into the building.
But Lu Xiao and Hall Master Xi Guang did not wait the two or three days they expected. That twilight, a miserable figure ran into the pavilion master's building.
Seeing the wretched figure rushing in, Lu Xiao, who was serving Xi Guang tea, was taken aback for a moment. He quickly looked behind Zhu Lian and asked, "Where are Fang Ao and the others?"
Zhu Lian knelt on the ground, his face full of horror. “Dead, they all died!”
"Zhou Yuan had killed them!"
Lu Xiao trembled, his eyes filled with disbelief. "How could he kill so many of you?"
“Our speculation was wrong. Zhou Yuan's Genesis Qi foundation has reached the level of 20 million, and even Fang Ao was no match for him! If I hadn't escaped in time, I would have died there too!"
Lu Xiao's pupils shrank abruptly. A 20 million Genesis Qi foundation?
When Zhou Yuan fought against Chen Beifeng, his foundation was only 15 million!
Before he could say anything, a pulsating killing intent erupted behind him. Xi Guang slammed the teacup in his hand on the table, and both the cup and the table shattered instantly.
Xi Guang's face was frozen. He wiped the dust off his sleeves and a cold voice echoed throughout the building.
“Look at the teleportation limit of Tianyuan Utopia. The moment that bastard appears, capture him immediately.”
"Also, inform the Wind Pavilion and tell them to prepare to collect the corpse of their pavilion master."
