d, but hes just an ordinary disciple. However, Senior Brother Gus disciple is a first disciple despite having a low cultivation base. After that, he was beaten by a ten-year-old girl. He could not accept being defeated by a little girl and was filled with resentment and jealousy. These negative feelings grew as time passed, but he did not dare to cause trouble under my watchful eyes. Hence, he went to Lieyang Peak to look for his friend, Jia Guang. When they found Senior Brother Gu was away, they went to seek revenge for past insults. They naturally did not expect that their cultivation bases would be destroyed as a result.”

Yue Cheng paused briefly before he continued to say, “When I found out about this, I was furious. Zhiyang Peak rarely gets in trouble, but he went and provoked another Peak. His actions are a violation of the sect rules so I sent him to the Restraining Tower to punish him. Following that, I sent Zuo Han to Chuyang Peak to apologize. He must have waited here when he saw Huo Yun was at Chuyang Peak. Who knew he would die instead? Dongfang Lie, you accuse me of so many things, but from whom should I demand justice for my junior brothers death?”

Yue Cheng grew more and more agitated as he spoke.

The corner of Dongfang Lies lips twitched when he heard Yue Chengs words. He cursed inwardly,This good-for-nothing Yue Cheng! Hes trying to wash his hands off this matter! He even sent Linghu Yin to the Restraining Tower. Hes really ruthless. Even those with intact cultivation bases can hardly last a day there, let alone someone whose cultivation base has been destroyed. F*ck him! He avoided this crisis beautifully!

Yue Cheng took a deep breath. Then, he bowed at Yan Yan, the Sect Master of Jiuyang Sect and also the First Seat of Taiyang Peak, before he said solemnly, “Our priority now is to find Junior Brother Zuos murderer! Although his cultivation base is average, hes still a Purple Mansion cultivator.?Isnt it like a slap to our faces that he was killed in the sect? Im certain his?murderer is still here! Sect Master, I ask that you lock down the sect. We have to search the sect thoroughly and apprehend the murderer. Otherwise, how can we feel at ease? If First Seat Dongfang still suspects I harbor ill intentions after we deal with this matter, Ill gladly be investigated by our fellow First Seats…”

“Youre right,” Sect Master Yan Yan nodded and swept his gaze across the people gathered there before saying, “Seal the entrance for now and search for the culprit. The other matters can wait.”

The others bowed. However, they all had their own plans.

Based on Yue Chengs words, Linghu Yins cultivation base was destroyed by Chuyang Peaks ten-year-old disciple. With that, they could assume he had died after being thrown to the Restraining Tower. If Linghu Yin was dead, it meant that they would not be able to verify the truth.

However, since Yue Chengs punishment of Linghu Yin was rather reasonable, no one could find fault with him.

With that, everyone returned to their respective Peaks.

Gu Hai rushed back to Chuyang Peak. Before he even landed, he could smell the aroma of food in the air. He sighed in relief immediately.

If hes cooking, it means nothing serious has happened…

At this time…

“Master, youre just in time. Dinner is ready!” Jiang Ming emerged from the kitchen with plates in his hands. He placed them on the stone table in the courtyard and smiled at Gu Hai who was still hovering in the air.

“What can I say? My timing has always been perfect!” Gu Hai said as he flew over to his seat. Then, he quickly picked up a piece of meat with his chopstick and began to eat. After swallowing the meat, he sighed in contentment and rested his chopstick on the table. He looked at Jiang Ming, who had just finished serving the dishes, and Zi Linglong, who was rushing over, before he said, “Tell me what happened. Dont miss out on any detail.”

Gu Hai had never been so serious before.

After Jiang Ming recounted what had happened, Gu Hai narrowed his eyes as he said, “Linghu Yin…” Then, he shook his head and said, “Linglong, you cant hide your strength anymore.. Come with me to the Tower of Trials tomorrow.”
