Outside Of Time - Chapter 318
318 Xu Qing’s Name
As the voice appeared, an indescribable force instantly erupted from the array formation, as though it had formed an invisible large hand. Almost the instant the expression of the old Dao Protector changed, he was slammed down from the sky.
The body of the insufferably arrogant old Dao Protector trembled violently. He was directly pressed to the ground.
The ground rumbled. No matter how the Golden Core old Dao Protector struggled, it was useless. He was firmly suppressed on the ground and only his roars could be heard.
“Is the Seven Blood Eyes trying to rebel? You…”
“Noisy!” Xu Qing calmly spoke. At the next instant, the sect’s array formation rumbled again. However, this time, it wasn’t suppression but expulsion.
Immediately, the old Dao Protector’s body was swept into the distance by a huge force. The Heavenly Palace in his body shook and he felt aggrieved. A dignified Golden Core was actually suppressed and driven away like this.
Xu Qing didn’t bother with him. With a sway, he headed straight for Sima Ling, who was fleeing in horror. He instantly caught up and slammed his palm down. Sima Ling let out a blood-curdling scream as his body was whipped up and smashed into a building. The four balls of life fire in his body swayed and one of them was suddenly extinguished.
“Xu Qing!!” Sima Ling’s hair was disheveled and he was about to go crazy. However, the poison in his body and the bizarre entities that were trying to riot in his body caused him to feel death so close for the first time.
However, Sima Ling was also a ruthless person. His eyes revealed madness as he suddenly bit the tip of his tongue and spat out blood at Xu Qing.
This blood directly transformed into countless small people in the air. Every small person carried an evil aura and let out an ear-piercing scream as they headed straight for Xu Qing. As they rushed over, these small people transformed into diamond-shaped marks that carried the power of sealing and rapidly surrounded him.
“Sealing Nether Dao!” Sima Ling let out a sinister roar and performed a series of hand seals with both hands. Those small people sped up and whistled closer. Even though Xu Qing rapidly retreated, he still couldn’t dodge. In the blink of an eye, these diamond-shaped marks landed around him and instantly pieced together, forming an eggshell.
The instant it enveloped Xu Qing, Sima Ling lifted his hands and waved them fiercely. Immediately, the eggshell that sealed Xu Qing rose into the air. His gaze turned malevolent and he let out a loud roar.
In that instant, 30% of the eggshell collapsed in mid-air and couldn’t continue. Xu Qing’s hand stretched out from the eggshell and he coldly looked at Sima Ling, whose eyes revealed madness and was struggling to stand up. He instantly arrived in front of the other party.
Before Sima Ling could react, Xu Qing had already grabbed his neck. He lifted him and then slammed him to the ground.
The ground quaked and shattered. Sima Ling’s entire body was pressed to the ground and blood flowed out of his mouth. Two balls of life fire in his body were instantly extinguished and he fainted.
All the bizarre entities in his body instantly erupted, as though they wanted to devour Sima Ling’s body. However, a ball of gentle light spread out from Sima Ling’s body and frantically blocked them.
Xu Qing coldly swept his gaze over and calmly spoke.
“Use 20 sealing rings on him and lock him up in the prison.”
“We respect the order!”
This scene caused the blood of all the surrounding Homicide Department disciples to boil, and their eyes revealed fanaticism. Even the disciples of the other peaks looked at Xu Qing with deep respect.
Even the directors of the First and Third Peaks took a deep breath and lowered their heads to bow to Xu Qing.
After some disciples of the Homicide Department got close and put the rings on the unconscious Sima Ling, Xu Qing calmly spoke.
“Capture all the Night Doves here. Kill all those who resist!”
Immediately, the surrounding members of the Homicide Department spread out. Killing and mournful cries spread throughout the area.
Xu Qing didn’t participate in the aftermath. Without the heaven’s chosen of the Seven Sects Alliance, the Homicide Department could handle Night Dove without an issue. This operation lasted for half the night.
A large number of Night Doves were captured and many were killed in resistance. When dawn was about to arrive, Xu Qing returned to the magic ship to rest and sent a decree to the Homicide Department.
“Hang the heads of all the Night Doves on the city wall.”
Back then, the Homicide Department had taken the same action against Night Dove. Now that Xu Qing was the director, he felt that this tradition was good and should be kept.
Hence, when dawn broke, a thousand or so Night Dove members’ heads were hanging on the city walls of the Seven Blood Eyes’ main city. Everyone who saw this was shocked. What happened during the night couldn’t be hidden and had long spread throughout the entire Seven Blood Eyes.
It caused a commotion everywhere.
All the nonhuman races, all the allies, all the Seven Blood Eyes disciples, and the people of the Wanggu Continent’s Seven Sects Alliance were extremely shocked.
What shocked them wasn’t the actions of the Seven Blood Eyes’ Homicide Departments against Night Dove, let alone the thousand or so heads hanging on the city walls. Instead… it was that the Bizarre Hunting Sect’s Sima Ling was actually captured and imprisoned by the Homicide Department.
Even the Dao Protector was forcefully driven away by the director of the Seventh Peak’s Homicide Department with the Seven Blood Eyes’ array formation.
As for the challenge against the Third Peak this morning, it was canceled because Sima Ling couldn’t attend.
This matter was too big.
This was especially so now that the Seven Sects Alliance had challenged the Seven Blood Eyes and their reputation was flourishing.
This event was like a huge slap to their faces. Hence, the information about Xu Qing was quickly collected by the various heaven’s chosens of the Seven Sects Alliance.
They wanted to know how this Seven Blood Eyes disciple and the director of the Seventh Peak’s Homicide Department, Xu Qing, who had entered the sequence but didn’t become a highness, had defeated Sima Ling who had four life fires.
In reality, they weren’t the only ones. The Seven Blood Eyes’ disciples and the highnesses of the various peaks were also shocked. Although Xu Qing had made a move before too, they were usually done secretly and only affected a small area. However, the news of yesterday’s event was spread everywhere and caused a huge commotion.
As such, they also quickly gathered information about Xu Qing.
While everyone was doing their best to collect information, outside Port 79, at noon, a person arrived at the place where Xu Qing and Sima Ling had fought yesterday.
This person wore a golden imperial robe with a golden silk sash around the waist. The rainbow canopy above his head emitted the sound of wind whispering and an auspicious light enveloped his surroundings, causing him to look like a divine son.
It was the number one heaven’s chosen of the Seven Sects Alliance who had defeated the second highness of the First Peak in a single strike and fought against the Golden Core elder, Soaring Cloud Sword Sect’s Saintly Star!
He arrived at Port 79 and stood on the shore, sensing his surroundings with his eyes closed. His tall and straight figure was like a peerlessly beautiful statue in the sea breeze. His extraordinary temperament seemed to be shining with boundless light under the sunlight.
Behind him were three old men. These three old men were all Golden Core cultivators and were Dao Protectors arranged by the Soaring Cloud Ancestor. The three of them were also willing to protect Saint Yunzi. They even felt that it was their honor to be able to protect him on his way to growth.
Their expressions were filled with respect and their heads were lowered slightly.
After a long time, Saintly Star opened his eyes and calmly spoke.
“Two life fires, an emperor-level cultivation art, poison that can threaten ordinary Heavenly Palace Golden Core, and a spiritual magic artifact… Interesting. Such strength can indeed make Sima Ling fall. However, this person’s emperor-level cultivation art is a little familiar…”
Within just a while, he was actually able to sense the battle last night as though he had seen it with his own eyes. However, he obviously didn’t possess the power to reverse time. It could only be said that… his spirit sense and perception exceeded that of ordinary people, so he could see some clues from the surroundings.
This was already very terrifying.
As he spoke, a strange cry rang out from behind him. The phantom of a strange bird with a green body and a red tail appeared and let out a shocking cry. Its eyes revealed ferocity and greed as it inhaled in all directions, as though it wanted to devour a certain aura here.
“Golden Crow?” Saintly Star turned his head and looked in the direction of Port 176, his eyes revealing a deep glint.
“Finally, there is something a little interesting in this Seven Blood Eyes. Unfortunately, it’s too weak. Miemeng1, don’t be anxious. Wait for that Golden Crow to grow a little bigger, then it will be able to strengthen you when you devour it.”
“Sooner or later, it will be yours.”
Saintly Star calmly spoke and left this place.
After Saintly Star left, many people arrived one after another in Port 79 for the entire afternoon. Finally, at dusk, after a day of investigation by the various forces, they finally dug out all the information about Xu Qing.
“He entered the Seven Blood Eyes three years ago and climbed out from the Gu-nurturing environment. He has extremely intense killing intent!”
“In the Seven Blood Eyes’ war with the Sea Corpse Race, he completed a large number of missions and killed many Qi Condensation Sea Corpse Race members to refine their souls, opening many of his magic apertures and reaching the level of two life fires. He seems to cultivate Golden Crow Refines All Life? He also possesses astonishing attainment in poison!!”
“Dao Child Miaochen, a Sequence cultivator of the Sea Corpse Race, added him to the wanted list… However, Miaochen never gave a direct response on the reason. Outsiders have many guesses about this but most of them don’t think that Xu Qing can fight against Miaochen. From the looks of it now, he might have fought Miaochen with poison and the Golden Crow!”
“This Xu Qing… can be said to be one of the top disciples in the Seven Blood Eyes. However, he’s not a highness yet. He’s only in the Sequence!”
“The most important thing is that although this person clearly has such strength, he kept an extremely low profile before the case of the ancestral corpse statue. Even most of his fellow disciples don’t know his true strength. This person hid it too deeply!!”
As a large amount of information about Xu Qing was dug out, everyone who read them was extremely shocked.
In an instant, Xu Qing’s name rose like a storm in the Seven Blood Eyes, causing all the nonhuman races to remember him firmly. At the same time, the disciples of the various peaks in the Seven Blood Eyes were also shaken by the information they found.
However, very soon, the Seven Blood Eyes’ disciples thought of how Xu Qing was from the Seventh Peak and felt relieved.
The disciples of the Seventh Peak were good at hiding their cards. It was already the consensus of everyone in the Seven Blood Eyes…
One would never know what kind of monsters were hidden among the Seventh Peak’s disciples.
