Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
After the first crack appeared, the clear sounds continued to sound out. Over ten cracks appeared on the surface of the crimson red rock, and their densely interwoven surface seemed to form a spider web.
“It worked!” When they saw this scene, the gazes of all the higher-ups of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect lit up, and someone them even couldn’t help but breathe more rapidly.
Amongst them included the formed Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader, Long Wei!
Long Wei’s body lightly trembled as he gazed at the crimson red rock that was covered in cracks, and because of his excitement, his firm face was suffused with a bloody flush.
The gorge was deathly silent.
Everyone had held their breaths as they stared fixedly at the crimson red rock that vibrated intensely, and the cracks that were like a spiderweb on the surface of the rock had spread all over it in the blink of an eye.
At the same time, a vast and overbearing aura swept out from the rock, and it rose ceaselessly in strength, giving rise to waves of terrifying airwaves that transformed into piercingly cold gales that blew towards the surroundings.
Some Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples with low cultivations were directly blown onto the ground.
Even though the others weren’t blown onto the ground, yet these waves of terrifying gales that assaulted their faces caused them to be unable to refrain from instinctively closing their eyes.
Even the higher-ups of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect had moved back slightly.
Finally, an enormous sound that was like a thunderclap resounded out abruptly, and the crimson red rock that was covered with cracks had exploded open. All the crimson red rocks that exploded out were enveloped by crimson red flames before completely transforming into powder.
Along with the gradual disappearance of the gale that assaulted their faces, most of the people present couldn’t help but open their eyes, and at the first possible moment, they looked towards the place where the crimson red rock had exploded open.
In next to no time, a figure that was sitting cross-legged appeared before their eyes.
This was a black clothed middle aged man with disheveled hair, his eyes were closed as he sat cross-legged at a low altitude in the air, and his body revolved ceaselessly.
A crimson red flame that shot into the sky enveloped his body, and it emitted strands of vast and overbearing aura that caused one to feel oppressed.
Suddenly, the black clothed middle aged man opened his eyes, and his eyes contained strands of scorching flames that leaped about within, causing others to not dare lightly look him in the eyes.
The scorching flames in the black clothed middle aged man’s eyes gradually dispersed, and replacing it was a perplexed expression. He looked into his surroundings as he frowned and muttered. “What place… is this?”
“Ancestor!” Long Wei was the first to react, his figure flashed out to arrive right before the black clothed middle aged man in a short moment, and he knelt of the floor with a ‘thump’ before speaking with a humble and trembling tone.
“Ancestor.” After Long Wei, the group of higher-ups that belonged to the Demonic Lotusblade Sect followed to kneel down. All of their bodies trembled, and their faces flushed red as they were extremely excited.
At the same time, Lu Yuan, Xue Rui, and the other higher-ups of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect descended from the sky and knelt on the ground as they respectfully greeted the black clothed middle aged man that sat cross-legged there.
When they saw all three Sect Leaders and all the Elders had knelt down, the remaining disciples of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect didn’t dare dally and knelt down, and the faces of most of them were filled with excitement.
Even though they were mentally prepared since long ago, but when they really saw a living person appear from within the crimson red rock, they still couldn’t help but feel shocked.
For a time, the entire gorge was filled with sonorous sounds of respectful address.
The crowd of Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples that surrounded the gorge bowed, and the dense mass of them made an extremely magnificent scene.
“All of you are disciples of my Demonic Lotusblade Sect?” The black clothed middle aged man was silent for a moment when facing the scene before him, and then he looked at Long Wei who was the first to kneel before him and asked indifferently.
At the same time, the billowing flames on the black clothed middle aged man’s body gradually restrained themselves before finally condensing into a Lotus Seat that appeared beneath him.
The black clothed middle aged man slowly descended onto the Lotus Seat, and he seemed like a supreme Emperor that had ascended his throne!
“The Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s 52nd Sect Leader, Long Wei, congratulates Ancestor on awakening from your slumber.” Long Wei knelt on the ground as he spoke respectfully.
“52nd?” The black clothed middle aged man’s eyes flickered with flowing lights when he heard Long Wei, and then he asked after a short while. “How long has it been since I established the Demonic Lotusblade Sect all those years ago?”
“Over 1,300 years.” Long Wei replied respectfully.
Established the Demonic Lotusblade Sect?
Even though Lu Yuan, Xue Rui, the higher-ups of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect, and all the disciples had heard Long Wei mention it before, but when they saw it with their own eyes and heard it themselves at this moment, they couldn’t help but be shocked.
“He… He’s the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Founding Ancestor?” Lu Yuan’s pupils constricted as his heartbeat quickened.
“I never imagined that the legends were true… The Firebreath Rock is really capable of allowing one to slumber for a thousand years and remain without perishing!” Xue Rui gasped.
The black clothed middle aged man was precisely the Founding Ancestor of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect.
In the past, there’d always been a legend in the Demonic Lotusblade Sect. This legend was precisely related to the Firebreath Rock in the forbidden area of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect.
Supposedly, the Firebreath Rock in the forbidden area of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect had already existed since the establishment of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect.
It was even to the extent that the legend said the Founding Ancestor had no choice but to rely on the Firebreath Rock to slumber and recuperate when he suffered a heavy injury, and in the end, he’d practically fused into one with the Firebreath Rock.
In the legends, the Firebreath Rock was capable of allowing one to slumber for a thousand years without perishing, whereas, if one wanted to allow the person slumbering within the Firebreath Rock to leave it, one must gather a huge amount of liquid spirit energy and pour it into the Firebreath Rock to force it to split open by itself.
If one were to forcefully split it open, then even if the Firebreath Rock was shattered, the person that was slumbering within would be blasted into pieces and die as well.
If one wanted to gather liquid spirit energy, once first required to be in possession of Origin Drawing Pearls, as only Origin Drawing Pearls were capable of storing liquid spirit energy.
During these past thousand years, the Demonic Lotusblade Sect had always been working hard to search for Origin Drawing Pearls just for the sake of awakening the Founding Ancestor that was slumbering within the Firebreath Rock.
Because of the uniqueness of the Firebreath Rock, the person that slumbered within the Firebreath Rock was completely separated from the outside world, and the person wouldn’t decay along with the passage of time.
Even though the cultivation environment within the Firebreath Rock was extremely bad, and the person within could only passively cultivate, but after being within it for so many years, the cultivation of the person that slumbered within would surely receive an extremely great increase.
So all the successive Sect Leaders of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect had wanted to awaken the Founding Ancestor from many years ago.
They knew that so long as the Founding Ancestor awoke, he would surely lead the Demonic Lotusblade Sect to a new stage.
Needless to say, Long Yun was lucky and chanced upon 18 Origin Drawing Pearls, and it was equivalent to obtaining the keys to opening the Firebreath Rock.
Yet he possessed the Origin Drawing Pearls, but lacked the liquid spirit energy.
Because of this, the subsequent events had occurred.
Due to being unsure if the spirit energy accumulated within the seven Spirit Points of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect would be enough, Long Wei had looked for Lu Yuan and Xue Rui to combine their sects and plan this matter.
In next to no time, they’d aimed their sights at the Mountain Split Sect and Seven Star Sword Sect, whereas, the reason Long Wei had chosen Lu Yuan and Xue Rui was because the Sect Leaders of the Seven Star Sword Sect and Mountain Split Sect were more impervious to reason and conservative.
Along with the combining of the three great sects, they attacked mightily to first annihilate the Mountain Split Sect, and then the Seven Star Sword Sect. Because of this, they obtained the seven Spirit Points of the Mountain Split Sect and the nine Spirit Points of the Seven Star Sword Sect.
Now, after they poured the liquid spirit energy accumulated within the 16 Spirit Points of the Seven Star Sword Sect and Mountain Split Sect into the Firebreath Rock, coupled with almost two Spirit Points worth of liquid spirit energy from the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, they’d finally successfully opened the Firebreath Rock.
When he saw the Firebreath Rock explode and a black clothed middle aged man appear from within it, Long Wei knew that everything he’d done for these past few years wasn’t done in vain!
“I truly never imagined that it has actually been so long since I entered into the slumber in the Firebreath Rock that day… But you’ve done extremely well to actually open the Firebreath Rock and awaken me.” After he found out of the course of events from Long Wei, the black clothed middle aged man nodded with satisfaction.
“Ancestor, this was my duty.” Long Wei lay prone on the ground with a trembling body, and he was still unable to restrain the excitement in his heart.
“From today onwards, the Azure Forest Tri-Sect doesn’t exist!” In next to no time, the black clothed middle aged man’s eyes were like a bolt of lightning as he stared at Lu Yuan and Xue Rui before speaking slowly. “The Demonic Lotusblade Sect was established by me, and I won’t allow it to vanish in the annals of history… Do the both of you have any objections?”
The instant the middle aged man’s fierce gaze swept over, Lu Yuan and Xue Rui were suppressed to the point they were incapable of catching their breaths, and they hurriedly shook their heads when they heard the black clothed middle aged man.
What a joke!
How would they dare have any objections at a time like this?
“Very good.” The black clothed middle aged man nodded, and then he continued. “Now, I’ll give both of you two paths… One of them is to become Vice Leaders of my Demonic Lotusblade Sect and serve under Long Wei, and you’ll cut all ties with the Origin Convergence Sect and Snow Moon Sect for eternity! The second is to bring your people along and f**k off back to your Origin Convergence Sect and Snow Moon Sects!”
“I’m willing to become a Vice Leader of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect.” When faced with the two choices given by the black clothed middle aged man, Lu Yuan and Xue Rui didn’t hesitate in the slightest and spoke out hurriedly.
Even though they would be lower in position than Long Wei because of this, they didn’t mind.
Because the current Demonic Lotusblade Sect was already not the former Demonic Lotusblade Sect. With the strength of the Founding Ancestors of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect that stood before them, it was sufficient to lead the Demonic Lotusblade Sect to have a place in the Darkstone Empire and even the Darkhan Dynasty!
At that time, even if they were only Vice Leaders, it would be far greater than a Sect Leader of a sect in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
“Very good.” The black clothed middle aged man nodded with satisfaction, and then he raised his voice. “All of you remember! From today onwards, the Sect Leader of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect is still Long Wei.”
“I, Jia Hong, will obey the Supreme Elder of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect!”
As soon as the black clothed middle aged man finished speaking.
With Long Wei, the new Sect Leader of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect in the lead, everyone in the Demonic Lotusblade Sect bowed as they cried out respectfully.
