Inside his own mansion, Chen Tian Fei was lying on a chair with two maids behind him gently fanning himself. Beside him was a warm and fragrant jade hand, holding a grape-like spirit fruit in her slender fingers, carefully removing its skin and sending it into Chen Tian Fei’s mouth, “Old Master, you still need to worry about Xingchen.”
Ever since Zhao Xingchen had offended Yang Kai and was stripped of his position as the Small Commander, he had been unable to recover from this setback and had spent his days wandering around the brothels.
Zhao Xingchen’s older sister naturally felt sorry for him, so she wanted to use this opportunity to make Chen Tian Fei promote Zhao Xingchen as the Small Commander again.
Chen Tian Fei sighed and said, “If that Yang Kai doesn’t die, how am I supposed to pay attention to him? Xingchen has eyes but can’t see, offending a noble and only removing him from his position as Small Commander is already a kindness.”
The woman continued, “Right now, in this Scarlet Star, you have the final say…”
“Stop!” Chen Tian Fei’s tightly shut eyes suddenly opened as he glared at Zhao Xingchen’s older sister, “You woman, don’t you know that trouble could come from your mouth? You’re just spouting nonsense.”
Although he had great authority now, there was still a Chief Manager above him. If the Chief Manager were to hear these words, wouldn’t he be committing a crime? At that time, he wouldn't know what the Chief Manager would think of him.
This scolding caused the woman to tear up.
Chen Tian Fei doted on this concubine the most and couldn’t bear to see her like this, so he comforted her, “Let’s wait a little longer, we’ll talk about it after the limelight passes.”
The woman gently wiped her eyes, “How long do we have to wait? This Mistress can wait, but I’m afraid Xingchen won’t be able to. You’ve already seen his appearance.”
“A piece of jade cannot be cut into pieces! There might be an opportunity for Xingchen!” Chen Tian Fei’s eyes narrowed into slits as a sharp light flashed across them, “What’s more, we don’t need to wait long. At most, we can wait until we leave the Great Ruins Boundary. That Yang Kai can dominate the Great Ruins Boundary, but in the end he’s just an Emperor Realm. Once we leave the Great Ruins Boundary, what can he do?”
When the woman heard this, she sighed in her heart, knowing that there was nothing she could say to dissuade him. Gritting her teeth, she cursed, “This damned Yang Kai, he could go into the wild. Why did he have to come to Scarlet Star?”
Chen Tian Fei also smiled bitterly, but just as he was about to say something, his expression suddenly became serious as he looked towards a certain spot in the sky.
At first, his expression was a bit puzzled, but soon after, his narrowed eyes slowly widened, and after three breaths, his face was filled with shock as his fat body stood up.
“What’s wrong, Old Master?” The woman didn’t understand. After all, her strength wasn’t high, only slightly stronger than her younger brother Zhao Xingchen, so although she followed Chen Tian Fei’s line of sight, she didn’t see anything.
“Something’s happened!” Chen Tian Fei shouted and quickly took out his communication bead. While contacting the other Managers of the Scarlet Star, he strode out and warned, “Stay at home and don’t run around, open all the Spirit Arrays!”
The woman was startled, knowing that something big must have happened, otherwise Chen Tian Fei would not have warned her so. She quickly contacted her younger brother, Zhao Xingchen, and asked him to come here to seek refuge.
However, she couldn’t understand what had happened to make Chen Tian Fei act like he was facing a great enemy.
In Star City, an Open Heaven Stage cultivator passing by seemed to sense something and looked up into the distance, his expression quickly changing.
At this moment, with a loud rumbling sound, a transparent Spirit Array barrier suddenly appeared around the entire Star City, instantly enveloping the entire Star City. This seemingly solid Spirit Array barrier had at least seven or eight layers.
The others who hadn’t noticed the change in the Star City immediately stopped and looked up, not understanding why the Scarlet Star’s protective array had suddenly opened.
Once this kind of protective Spirit Array was activated, it would definitely consume a lot of natural treasures. Unless it was a critical moment, it would normally not be activated.
On the main street, the crowd was bustling with noise and chatter.
“What is Scarlet Star doing? Why did they open the Great Array?” Someone asked in confusion.
“With the Great Array activated, there must be a powerful enemy attacking. If not for this, why would they do this?”
“Enemy? What kind of enemy does Scarlet Star have in the Great Ruins Boundary?”
“Could it be that there’s another Beast Tide?” The person who spoke turned pale.
The opening time of the Great Ruins Boundary was not short, and many people had encountered a Beast Tide during this time. There were many ferocious beasts in the Great Ruins Boundary, and all of them were extremely violent and powerful. Many places where cultivators gathered had been flattened by the Beast Tide, resulting in countless casualties.
Talking about the Beast Tide, the cultivators in the Great Ruins Boundary change expression.
“It’s not a Beast Tide, look over there!” Someone’s voice trembled as he pointed in a certain direction.
Looking in that direction, everyone’s eyes narrowed.
In that direction, a dense mass of light was flying towards them at a rapid pace. The leader of this group was a group of Sword Qi and Sword Light!
“Sword Pavilion! They’re from Sword Pavilion!” Someone saw through the situation and shouted.
“How could there be so many people from the Sword Pavilion? Did I see wrong?”
The number of people from the Sword Pavilion wasn’t high, and this was something everyone in Star City knew. At this moment, there were more than two or three thousand people coming from that direction. This was definitely not a number Sword Pavilion could possess.
“The one in the lead is definitely Sword Pavilion, but we don’t know who those people behind are.”
“Did Sword Pavilion come here for the Sixth Manager of Scarlet Star? I heard that several dozen Sword Pavilion disciples died because of him in the Yuan Magnetic Mountain!”
“Didn’t they say it was Emperor Heaven's people?”
“It was Emperor Heaven's people and Ding Yi who killed them, but if it wasn’t for Scarlet Star’s Sixth Manager releasing his Yuan Magnetic Divine Light at the critical moment, the Sword Pavilion’s Sword Array wouldn’t have been broken and the dozens of disciples wouldn’t have died so miserably. I was there at that time and saw clearly that the Sixth Manager was laughing so hard while he said he was going to give Sword Pavilion a big gift!”
“If the one leading the charge is Sword Pavilion, then are the remaining people from Thunder Light?”
“It can’t be wrong, Thunder Light seems to have a deep enmity with that Manager Yang. I heard that even Bie Jian died at his hands.”
“Scarlet Star is finished!”
Star City’s three great forces had coexisted for thousands of years, and although there had been some friction and conflicts between them, they had all been small skirmishes that had not harmed their foundation. But today, in the Great Ruins Boundary, because of a single person, Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light had joined forces and aggressively come to denounce him, so how could Scarlet Star resist?
The situation that had not changed for thousands of years, was it really going to change in the Great Ruins Boundary?
Seeing that a storm was about to break out here, some cultivators had already thought of leaving this place to temporarily hide, but with the protective array activated, none of them were able to leave. For a time, all of them gathered in front of the city gate, shouting, creating a chaotic scene.
“It's a trouble, our new Sixth Manager has caused trouble for Scarlet Star,” A Scarlet Star disciple said bitterly.
“What about Manager Chen and the others?”
“The Protection Array has already been activated, Manager Chen and the others must already know the situation and are probably discussing a countermeasure.”
Amidst the noise, the dense light had already arrived in front of the Star City.
When the light dissipated, nearly three thousand figures appeared in front of everyone’s eyes. These three thousand people didn’t say a word, but a boundless pressure descended from the sky, causing the entire Star City to fall silent!
In front of the three thousand people, five figures stood quietly, each of them exuding a powerful aura. Standing there, they gave off a great pressure.
Someone recognized that these five people were the leaders of Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light.
There were three people from Sword Pavilion: Zhong Fan, Luo Qingyun, Lu Xue. Thunder Light has two people, Zhu Li and Long Tai, all of which Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage and above. Zhong Fan was even a Fifth Grade Open Heaven Stage cultivator!
Sure enough, it was the Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light.
The Sword Pavilion had sent out more than three hundred people this time, which was twenty to thirty percent of the Sword Pavilion’s total strength. The entire Sword Pavilion only had a little over a thousand people. As for the Thunder Light, it was likely that some of the disciples who had stayed behind to guard the entrance had already left.
With such a force, it was obvious they weren’t just here to take a stroll. Not to mention Thunder Light’s group, the three hundred people from Sword Pavilion were the mainstays. Previously, on the Yuan Magnetic Mountain, several dozen people from Sword Pavilion had already broken through the Emperor Heaven's camp. If these three hundred people were to form a Sword Array, no one could imagine how terrifying their power would be. [Hoogsway: Yeah, did they forget how that sword array break?]
It was likely that they could wipe out the entire Star City.
In the sky above the mansion, Yue He stood in the air, her brow furrowed.
She also realized that Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light had definitely come to seek revenge on Yang Kai, but she hadn’t expected them to be so bold as to mobilize so many people just for Yang Kai alone.
Was this necessary?
Yang Kai was currently in seclusion, so he probably didn’t know anything about the outside world. Yue He considered whether or not she should inform Yang Kai, but after thinking about it for a moment, she realized that this guy’s Space Ability was strange and unpredictable, allowing him to teleport tens of thousands of kilometers in an instant. Although there were many people from the Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light, if he wanted to escape, he wouldn’t be in any danger.
Sword Pavilion, Thunder Light, and the others were likely going to return in low spirits.
With this thought in mind, Yue He landed in the courtyard, no longer having anything to worry about.
On the other hand, the two Great Moon Province disciples and Chen Yue who had received the news hurried over and looked at her nervously.
“It’s fine, go do whatever you need to do,” Yue He casually dismissed them.
The three of them were speechless.
Inside Chen Tian Fei’s mansion, Zhao Xingchen had already rushed over, his face a bit pale as he grabbed the woman’s arm in panic, “Elder Sister, where did Brother-in-law go? Tell him to bring us away.”
“What are you running for!?” The woman shook off Zhao Xingchen’s hand and threw him to the ground, gritting her teeth, “Why should we run? Look at how drunk you are.”
Zhao Xingchen panicked, “The Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light’s people are already here, if we don’t escape now, we won’t have a chance.”
The woman coldly snorted, “Did they come to find you?”
Zhao Xingchen shook his head dumbly.
The woman asked again, “Then who do you think they’re looking for?”
Zhao Xingchen was stunned for a moment before his eyes lit up, “Sister, you mean…”
The woman sneered, “Every grievance has its perpetrator, every debt has its debtor. They naturally come to find the man who killed their people! Scarlet Star isn’t some weakling after all. As long as Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light can achieve their objectives, why would they suddenly start a war with Scarlet Star?”
