Abandoned Lair, one of the two most notorious places in Heng Luo Star Field, the Earthly Danger and the Human Evil, were equally famous as the Galaxy Ridge.
These two places had almost gathered more than ninety percent of the Star Field’s galactic pirate gangs. The cultivators who had been exiled and abandoned here were all vicious and ruthless.
For thousands of years, the StarTerritory’s three great forces had been constantly at odds with each other and had even joined forces to destroy them, but whether it was the Abandoned Lair or the Galaxy Ridge, they were both easy to defend and difficult to attack. Moreover, they were protected by natural Spirit Formations and could not be easily taken down, so not only did they fail to successfully invade them, but they also suffered great losses and were thus left unsettled.
The Abandoned Lair wasn’t really a lair, but rather an extremely chaotic region with chaotic force fields, violent asteroids, and space storms. It was the most natural barrier to this place, and if one wasn’t familiar with the way in and out of it, even a 3rd order Origin King Realm would be in danger of dying.
In the center of this chaotic region, there were many large, broken asteroids, each of which was difficult to measure in size, and the many pirate gangs that had abandoned their lairs had planted their roots on these asteroids, multiplying and growing over the years.
The countless Star Pirate Clusters of various sizes were the foundation of this abandoned lair.
Among these galactic pirate groups, the strongest and biggest one was called the Blood Evil Space Pirates, and their leader, Jiang Xuesong, was a 3rd order Origin King Realm. Such strength was considered the pinnacle of the entire Star Field, and few in this world could match him.
Jiang Xuesong had cultivated for 1,500 years, and it was rumoured that his origins were somewhat related to the Sword Union, one of the Star Field’s Three Great Factions. When he was young, he was also a young genius of Sword Union who had placed high hopes on the higher-ups of Sword Union and had been nurtured.
However, it’s unknown what had happened, but in the end, after killing his master and brother, he had escaped from Sword Union and escaped into the Abandoned Lair. A few hundred years later, a bloody Star Pirate Gang had appeared.
Jiang Xuesong’s hair was white and he was already past his prime. For a 3rd order Origin King Realm master, this was very rare. Although he was already old, his figure was as straight as a sword, as if the education he received when he was young in Sword Union was still affecting him. Sitting there, he was like an unsheathed sword, its sharp edge completely restrained.
On the opposite side of the table, an old man was gently sipping a cup of tea, his entire body exuding an extremely uncomfortable Blood Qi. Although he was also old, if one observed carefully, they would discover that this person’s Blood Qi was even more vigorous than a young man’s, and this Blood Qi was not an ordinary Blood Qi, instead giving off an eerie feeling.
The old man put down his teacup and asked softly, “Did you find anything?”
In this Abandoned Lair, Jiang Xuesong was the ruler, and no one had ever been able to speak to him on equal terms, let alone ask such a question. Although it was just a question, there was a faint sense of pride from a superior to an inferior.
The old man’s cultivation was also at the 3rd order Origin King Realm, not any weaker than Jiang Xuesong’s, and the clothes he wore indicated his background.
Great Desolate Star Field, Underworld Sect!
The old man was none other than a Vice Sect Master of the Underworld Sect. Jiang Xuesong still didn’t know his name, only that he called himself Old Eagle. [TL: this sect has so many vice sect master.]
The Sword Master killed, his sword heart was resolute, and he would rather break than bend, not to mention a peerless sword master like Jiang Xuesong. If anyone else dared to show him the slightest disrespect, he would slash out with his sword and let him have a taste of his own strength, but he didn’t have any confidence in winning against this Old Eagle. What’s more, although he didn’t like Old Eagle’s imperious attitude, he didn’t want to become enemies with the Underworld Sect. Over the past ten years, he had witnessed the strength of the Underworld Sect, and if they really fought, this Abandoned Lair wouldn’t be able to resist the attacks of the Underworld Sect.
Hearing this, he said in a low voice, “There’s no useful information. The people of your Star Field have died too quickly, so there’s no useful information about them.”
Old Eagle said, “It can’t be that there aren’t any clues, right?”
Over the past few months, the Great Desolate Star Field had suffered heavy casualties. More than half of the results of the ten years of invasion had been destroyed, and many stars had lost contact with each other. Monster Emperor Star, Shadowed Star, Moon Water Star, Green Hills Star…
He didn’t care about the lives of the cultivators from the other forces, he only cared about the situation of the disciples from the Underworld Sect.
What shocked him the most was that he had lost contact with Tongxuan Continent.
It had to be known that there was a Vice Sect Master standing guard over there, and his cultivation was on par with his. On top of that, there were also four 3rd order Origin King Realm assisting him. With such a lineup, how could the Heng Luo Star Field resist, let alone destroy them?
Perhaps there had been some kind of accident over there, causing the communication to be cut off.
However, when this conjecture appeared, Old Eagle was unable to convince himself. He instinctively felt that something was wrong, but he couldn’t put his finger on it, so he asked Jiang Xuesong to send someone out to investigate.
In the end, he received such an answer, making him quite unhappy.
“Indeed, there are no clues. If Old Eagle doesn’t believe me, you can send someone out to investigate,” Jiang Xuesong replied in a neither servile nor overbearing manner.
Unlike Galaxy Ridge’s subservience to the Great Desolate Star Field, the path he had chosen was to cooperate! Cooperating with the Great Desolate Star Field, destroying Sword Union, and taking revenge for the blood feud of the past, the result of this cooperation was quite good.
The Sword Union had indeed been destroyed, and some of the Cultivation Stars in their possession had fallen into the hands of the cultivators from the Great Desolate Star Field. The Sword Union had fallen apart, and only the Young Union Master had managed to escape and seek refuge in Tongxuan Continent.
However, Tongxuan Continent was also in a precarious situation. Once Underworld Sect’s plan succeeded, the Sword Union’s Young Union Master would have nowhere to hide and would certainly die.
Although he had taken revenge for a thousand years, Jiang Xuesong didn’t feel much joy, because he had underestimated the strength of Underworld Sect. Although he was still the strongest leader of the Abandoned Lair, the entire Abandoned Lair was basically under the control of Udnerworld Sect, so he was no longer worthy of his title.
If the Underworld Sect really decided to deal with him, he probably wouldn’t be able to escape.
Making a deal with a tiger for its skin was the reason for his actions today.
However, there was no benefit in dealing with an unyielding Great Sword Cultivator. It would only increase internal friction, which was why the Underworld Sect was willing to endure, but this cooperation was no longer possible. If the rabbit dies, the dog will be burned; if the bird dies, the bow is pulled out. Jiang Xuesong had long since lost the ability to cooperate. Although he had not become their lackey, after Heng Luo Star Field completely fell, the first person the Underworld Sect would deal with would be him.
Old Eagle smiled slightly, and with his sinister aura, this smile gave off a creepy feeling, “This old master can trust the words of the Chief, but in the past few months, things have been quite strange. The Chief is a native, so it’s obvious who in this world has such extraordinary means.”
Jiang Xuesong raised his brow and asked in surprise, “Does Old Eagle think that those who lost contact with him are all dead?”
Old Eagle sighed, “This old master doesn’t want to think so, but I’m afraid I’m not wrong.”
If it was just one or two places that had lost contact with each other, it could be explained as an accident, but in recent months, there had been too many places that had lost contact, so many that even Old Eagle was shocked.
Although he didn’t want to admit it, he knew that there must be some hidden master from the Heng Luo Star Field who had come out of seclusion and was currently hunting for the Great Desolate Star Field and Underworld Sect.
Jiang Xuesong was slightly shocked. Even Old Eagle had said so, so it was probably true. After pondering for a moment, he said, “In the past, there was an old man in the Star Field who was known as the number one in the Star Field. His strength was unfathomable.”
Who in the Star Field didn’t know the great name of Wu Dao? When Jiang Xuesong was young, Wu Dao was already a 3rd order Origin King Realm, so after so many years, Wu Dao cultivation had probably become even more profound. If he had really taken action, it would be reasonable.
“But it shouldn’t be him,” Jiang Xuesong slowly shook his head.
“Why do you say so?” Old Eagle asked.
“Because he left this Star Field several dozen years ago and went to an even more mysterious world.”
“Star Boundary!” Old Eagle’s eyes flashed, revealing a look of yearning, but it was quickly extinguished.
“Star Boundary?” Jiang Xuesong stared at Old Eagle in shock. This was the first time he had heard this term, and it was quite refreshing.
“Continue,” Old Ying couldn’t be bothered to explain. Heng Luo Star Field didn’t know about the existence of the Star Boudary, but the Great Desolate Star Field did. This was because the Patriarch of the Underworld Sect had gone to the Star Boundary and established his own Sect there. He had used a great Divine Ability to issue a decree and even bestowed some treasures.
As Underworld Sect’s Vice Sect Master, he was naturally familiar with the Star Boundary. The previous Sect Master Yin Le Sheng had gone to the Star Boundary.
The Star Boundary was the place all cultivators yearned for. There were even more perfect World Laws and a higher road of martial arts. If it weren’t for the fact that he was old, he would also want to visit the Star Boundary.
Jiang Xuesong said, “Since it can’t be Wu Dao, I can’t think of anyone else.” Saying so, he frowned and hesitated, “It’s also impossible for him.”
“A junior named Yang Kai.”
“Since it’s a junior, why bring him up?” Old Eagle said unhappily.
Jiang Xuesong said, “Although I don’t know Yang Kai personally, this boy is no ordinary junior. The reason why Wu Dao was able to go to that Star Boundary was all thanks to him. It was Yang Kai who took Wu Dao with him and the others and left the Star Field. Back then, the Star Field was widely spread that in less than a hundred years, this boy would become the number one in the Star Field and replace Wu Dao’s position, but I didn’t expect him to leave so soon.” Jiang Xuesong sighed, “Not being able to fight with him is my regret.”
“If you have such a wish, what harm is there in this young master fulfilling it?”
A man’s voice rang out from afar, and when he heard the first word, he seemed to be several dozen kilometers away. When the last word fell, a majestic figure appeared in front of the hall.
The dim light from the Abandoned Lair shone on his back, forming a long shadow that seemed to cover the entire hall. His face was also obscured by the shadow, making it impossible to see his face clearly. Only his eyes were shining brightly.
Jiang Xuesong and Old Eagle both held their breaths at the same time. The newcomer didn’t emit any aura, but it made their hair stand on end.
