Chapter 579 Sweeping Away
This man was Feng Chao, the head of the Mysterious Frost Holy Guards in Snow Province.
Upon seeing these people, Lu Xiongfei was full of joy. He shouted, “Commander Feng, you are here just in time. Ding Hao of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect is killing his fellow clan members. He deserves to die. Take him down quickly!”
Ding Hao sneered.
He stretched out his hand to the void, and a tremendous force gushed out from him. In a split second, Lu Xiongfei was pulled out from the ground. He held Lu Xiongfei’s neck and said word for word, “Even if God is here, you will not be spared!”
“You…” Lu Xiongfei was shocked.
“You and your vicious granddaughter shall disappear together from this world forever!”
Before his voice fell, a ball of ice suddenly appeared on Ding Hao’s palm, instantly freezing the former top martial artist of Snow Province.
Ding Hao did not give up. The Qi in his body surged. He flipped his hand and hit the ground. With a bang, a bright silver light column flashed. When the light disappeared, a huge ice crystal column with a diameter of two meters and a height of ten meters appeared and completely sealed Lu Xiongfei inside it.
The enormous ice crystal pillar stood on the top of the War God Square, emitting gusts of cold air.
Ding Hao just wanted to show everyone how Lu Xiongfei’s life ended.
Let them understand what kind of retribution there would be for provoking the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect.
In the War God Square, there was an outburst of cold air.
“How… how dare you!” Feng Chao, the commander of the Mysterious Frost Holy Guard, was enraged.
With such a high status, he had never been ignored like this. He wanted to break the golden shield and rush into the War God Square to arrest Ding Hao, but unexpectedly, he was rebounded by the shield. With a grunt, he was thrown back. He looked pale afterwards.
Ding Hao did not even look at those noble people.
“Brothers of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect, now, the revenge begins! An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth!”
Ding Hao, like a demon god, stood in the void; gusts of icy air gushing out of him. He moved his fingers. Strange silver inscription chains spread around, releasing a terrible pressure. All the people of the Tranquility Academy felt that their strength was completely suppressed, and their Qi could not be channeled at all.
Li Yunqi picked up a long sword next to him, roaring. He was the first to rush out.
The revenge had begun!
The other disciples of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect followed him closely; all of them had regained their strength. With tears and hatred in their eyes, they rushed to the warriors of the Tranquility Academy.
For the past days, they had not only been tortured but had also witnessed brothers and sisters of their sect being ruthlessly slaughtered in front of them. Some female disciples were forced to undergo all kinds of humiliation and died of suffering. These people in front of them were not humans, but devils. Even if they would eventually die, they would never let their deceased brothers die in vain!
Shouts and screams roared over the battlefield deafening the sky.
The 200 or more sealed warriors of the Tranquility Academy, and the martial artists who volunteered to help in the execution, were powerless in front of the angry disciples of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect. They howled like ghosts and wolves, and their blood splashed high into the air.
In the blink of an eye, dead corpses were scattered and blood smeared the ground.
The disciples of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect were all covered in blood, killing everyone around them.
The Square of God of War had become a blood-soaked hell.
The crowd surrounding the square were so frightened that their faces turned pale.
However, they didn’t have much sympathy for the Tranquility Academy.
For the past days, without having the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect as a counter, the people of the Tranquility Academy were like wild dogs that had been unleashed. They were swollen with arrogance and had been rampaging around the Mirror Lake. No one dared to rebel against them.
Those men kept hunting the survivors of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect and killed many innocent people. Not only that, but they also extorted a lot of money and properties. Fearing the Tranquility Academy’s retaliation, people could not show their anger. If the crowd were not afraid of revenge from the Tranquility Academy, they would have applauded and cheered after seeing those men being punished.
In comparison, the disciples of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect had always given people a better impression.
This revenge was also clearly targeted and did not hurt any of the innocent.
“Ding Hao, how… how arrogant of you. Do you know what you’re doing?” Feng Chao was furious. As one of the commanders stationed in the Snow Province by the Holy Palace of Mysterious Frost, he was of noble status. Being ignored like that was unforgivable.
However, Ding Hao had not even looked at him.
Ding Hao looked at the blood-soaked disciples and asked, “Which other sects were involved in the siege of our sect?”
“The Leiyin Sect, the Falling Star Sect…” Li Yunqi shouted out the names of several sects.
Having escaped from the attack, he had experienced the bloody battle and witnessed how corpses had been piled up like mountains. He vividly remembered the major forces that participated in the siege of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect, so he could not be wrong.
Ding Hao nodded.
In the next moment, he suddenly punched out.
A huge golden palm instantly shot out from his body as if with divine power. At first, it was only the size of 10 square meters, but after a short while, it was as large as a small mountain. Like a meteor, which carried a long tail and an apocalyptic aura, it cut through the sky and fell down on the base of the Tranquility Academy in the Mirror Lake.
It was like the end of the world. The ground trembled and huge waves crashed on the surface of the Mirror Lake.
An enormous golden mushroom cloud rose up into the sky.
A light golden halo spread in all directions and then shrank mysteriously shortly after. The entire space seemed to be contracting; in the next moment, an uncontrollable power filled the air. Clouds of gravel and dust covered most of the sky.
Everyone was overwhelmed by what they had seen.
They knew very well.
The base of the Tranquility Academy in Mirror Lake had been obliterated.
It no longer existed.
Even the Mysterious Frost Holy Guards in the air were stunned and frozen on the spot.
The waterside pavilion, the winding corridors, and the rock gardens that the Tranquility Academy previously owned had been turned into ruins of bricks and tiles. Looking down from the sky, a huge handprint with five fingers had replaced the original architecture. It was as if a 10,000-meter-tall giant had patted on this spot and smashed everything.
All defensive formations and master guards were turned into ashes with this palm.
This was simply a divine act.
Ding Hao did not stop there.
He punched out a few more times, looking emotionless.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The massive golden palms, like falling stars, swept across the sky with beautiful and fatal arcs of light, hitting the bases of the Leiyin Sect, the Falling Star Sect, and the others that had participated in the siege of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect around the Mirror Lake.
Enormous golden mushroom clouds rose to the sky one after another.
Those major sects, which had been operating around Mirror Lake for thousands of years, had been turned into ruins.
This power was godly; it was impossible for the warriors in Snow Province to fight against it.
“You… you…” The head of the Mysterious Frost Holy Guard pointed at Ding Hao and did not know what to say. In the face of such an earth-shattering palm, even the most arrogant people would be frightened. This was not something they could resist at all.
“Leave this place!” Ding Hao turned his head and said to the Mysterious Frost Holy Guards without any mercy.
This time, the Holy Palace of Mysterious Frost did nothing when the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect was destroyed. It was not difficult to imagine what disgraceful roles these Mysterious Frost Holy Guards had played in this matter, so Ding Hao did not trust them at all. When the most important thing at hand taken care of, he would deal with those hypocritical moralists.
The only question in his mind was why Ding Honglei, the Inspector, did not stop this.
Ding Honglei was clearly on his side. Why didn’t she help the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect?
Feng Chao, the head of the Mysterious Frost Holy Guard, said with fake fierceness. “Fine, man. You win. However, it will not end like this. Just wait and see. You’ve offended the Holy Palace of Mysterious Frost, and you won’t end up well!”
“Hum, what a bully. Do you really think that lowlives like you can represent the Holy Palace of Mysterious Frost?” Ding Hao did not take them seriously at all.
When he slowly descended from the void, Ding Hao was greeted by the rousing cheers of more than a hundred Swordsmanship-seeking Sect disciples.
They looked at Ding Hao as if they were looking at a deity whom they crazily worshipped.
The onlookers were also shocked.
Ding Hao’s power was so destructive that it exceeded everyone’s imagination. In their memory, it seemed that no one had ever been so terrifyingly powerful in the history of Snow Province. Even the strongest masters of each generation had not been as good as him.
Everyone realized that a new era would come soon in the Snow Province.
Ding Hao made a move with his mind and the inscription shields covering the War God Square disappeared.
“Fellow martial artists, senior masters,” Ding Hao cupped his hands and said, “Today, Ding Hao killed only to settle the blood feud of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect. I didn’t hurt any innocent. Please be my witnesses. I understand you were shocked by the events. Please accept my apology!”
“You’re being too polite!”
“The Tranquility Academy reaped what they sowed. Master Ding, your acts are justified!”
“Right. Master Ding created the ‘Seven Black Cut’ and taught it to martial artists in the Snow Province. He has long been a saint and an exemplar for all sects. Countless martial artists admire him. Today, he killed many people for the sake of justice. It is reasonable.”
There was a chorus of compliments at the square.
Moments later, the crowd in the War God Square dispersed.
Ding Hao called Li Yunqi, Zhao Xingcheng, and the others to his side and asked them to tell him about everything that had happened in the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect in detail.
“What? Head Jianyi and Master Qingshan are really…” Ding Hao stood frozen, as if hit by a thunderbolt in a clear sky.
There had been some lingering expectations, but after hearing this, the last glimmer of hope in his heart had been shattered. An uncontrollable killing intent was violently boiling in his heart.
