The expressions of the two Primordial realm experts who had come with Dao Gongming immediately changed from Dao Gongming’s howl. They both arrived beside him in a flash and pressed a finger against his forehead, checking his injuries.
The expressions of the two old men immediately sank after that. They snarled and said, “His soul has actually been injured! Shangguan Mu’er, haven’t you been too heavy-handed?”
“If it weren’t for the fact that I don’t want your Dao family as my enemy, Dao Gongming would already be dead,” Shangguan Mu’er said coldly.
“Dead? Hmph, Shangguan Mu’er, you’re far too arrogant. Do you really think you can look down on everyone just because you have the Third Ancestor’s legacy? You haven’t reached the limit of your potential yet. It’s not time for you to be arrogant.”
“Let alone the fact that you haven’t reached the limit of your potential, even if you reach the same level as the Third Ancestor at the same time, do you really think you can stand up to our Dao clan? Our Dao clan gave birth to a sovereign of the world in the previous aeon. How can we let a little kid like you provoke us? Since you’ve harmed out young master, just come back with us obediently and accept your punishment.”
The two Primordial realm experts from the Dao family bellowed out. With that, one of the old men extended his hand without any hesitation at all.
As the hand stretched out, the surroundings immediately surged. Powerful energy gathered over, condensing into a huge hand several dozen meters wide in an instant. It reached towards Shangguan Mu’er with the power of Primordial realm laws.
“I would let it slide if you were a Godking, but you’re a Primordial realm expert, yet you would stoop low enough to harass Mu’er who’s still a Godking. The people of your Dao clan have gone too far,” Gu Na said coldly. She could no longer just watch now that a Primordial realm expert had taken action.
“The Dao clan is just far too arrogant. They don’t even take our Daoist Sect of Divine Sound seriously, harassing Mu’er in our sect. Moreover, she’s the only successor of the Third Ancestor,” Deng Wenxin was angered as well. Regardless of how Shangguan Mu’er felt about the Daoist Sect of Divine Sound, she was still the Third Ancestor’s successor in the end. They could not just stand by and watch a Primordial realm expert harass her.
Just when Deng Wenxin and Gu Na were about to take action, a voice rang out from the forbidden grounds, right inside their heads.
“Don’t interfere between Mu’er and the Dao clan. We can’t afford to offend the Dao clan right now. Even if they’re only a branch of the Dao clan, they’re beyond what we can afford to offend.”
The voice was extremely crisp and pleasant. It was rather obvious that the speaker did not seem to be very old.
She was the leader of the four ancestors, the Wind Ancestor.
The Wind Ancestor rarely showed herself, and she rarely interfered with the matters of the Daoist Sect of Divine Sound. However, she was the person who possessed the greatest authority.
Not only was the Wind Ancestor someone from the same age as the Third Ancestor, but her other identity was the Third Ancestor’s senior sister.
However, despite being senior and junior, there was a huge difference in talent and potential. Over three million years ago, the Third Ancestor had become an influential person only second to Grand Exalts, pushing the Daoist Sect of Divine Sound to the peak and into infinite glory alone.
However, the Wind Ancestor was still working hard on becoming a Grand Prime.
Deng Wenxin and the others did not dare to disobey the Wind Ancestor. They stared at the Primoridial realm expert who had attacked Shangguan Mu’er, and they felt very helpless.
The Wind Ancestor was right. The Dao clan was one of the archean clans, possessing a supreme expert only second to Grand Exalts. They were a supreme clan that could shake up the entire Saints’ World. Even if it were just a single branch of theirs, it would be enough to destroy the Daoist Sect of Divine Sound easily.
“Don’t worry, nothing will happen to Mu’er,” the Wind Ancestor’s voice rang out once again.
The hand condensed by the Infinite Prime from the Dao clan had already arrived. It clenched up and wrapped around Shangguan Mu’er in a flash.
Shangguan Mu’er seemed like an infant from the outside, trapped in there helplessly.
However, the hand of energy did not truly grab onto Shangguan Mu’er. The Zither of the Demonic Cry shone with a hazy glow inside, illuminating the space there.
All the regions the light reached seemed to become a separate domain that no foreign energy could penetrate.
Shangguan Mu’er sat in the air. She gently plucked the strings on the zither with her slender, white hands, playing a beautiful tune.
Every single note leapt out from the Zither of the Demonic Cry with great offensive power.
As she played the zither, notes filled her surroundings, constantly hurtling at the hand of energy.
Immediately, the hand of energy around her began to tremble violently. The energy in the hand depleted at an extremely terrifying rate before collapsing loudly. It had been destroyed by Shangguan Mu’er’s music.
“You really are the successor of the Third Ancestor after all. I’ve underestimated you.” The old man who struck out snorted coldly. Originally, he wanted to take Shangguan Mu’er away. As long as they returned to the Dao clan, she would no longer be able to control what happened to her. Once what was done was done, everything would be much easier.
However, he had underestimated Shangguan Mu’er’s strength, allowing her to easily nullify his first attempt.
“It’s the Zither of the Demonic Cry. The Zither of the Demonic Cry was a treasure bound to the Third Ancestor’s life in the past. Ge Tong, be careful. Don’t fail a simple task,” the other Primordial realm expert reminded. They came from archean clans, so they knew much more than regular Primordial realm experts.
Ge Tong did not mind it at all and said, “It’s no problem. That was only a casual attempt of mine. I refuse to believe that I can’t capture a Godking as a Second Heavenly Layer Infinite Prime.”
Although supreme Godkings who ranked in the top ten of the Godkings’ Throne could put up a fight against Primordial realm experts or even kill them, that was only regular Primordial realm experts. They would be the weaker type even among First Heavenly Layer Infinite Primes.
Not only was Ge Tong a Second Heavenly Layer Infinite Prime, but he also came from an archean clan. He knew ancient secret techniques and battle skills. Although his battle prowess was not enough for him to claim invincibility at the same level of cultivation, he was much more powerful than most Second Heavenly Layer Infinite Primes. As a result, he did not take Shangguan Mu’er seriously at all.
He tried once again. Energy surged on him, and he reached towards Shangguan Mu’er again.
However, he had clearly used his full strength this time. As his hand stretched out, the space there shook, and the landscape blurred. Before the hand was even fully stretched, a powerful pressure engulfed Shangguan Mu’er.
Shangguan Mu’er did not retreat in the face of a Primordial realm expert’s attack. She sat in the air and stared at the Zither of the Demonic Cry placed across her knees. She played it with great focus and concentration.
It seemed like the zither was the only thing she could see right now, and there was nothing else apart from it.
However, her body seemed to fuse with the zither as well; she seemed to be the zither, and the zither seemed to be her.
At the same time, a faint tune rang out.
