In the living room of the Lan family's backyard.
As the current Deputy Patriarch of the Lan family, Lan Tianhen was sitting in the hall with a big smile on his face. He was happily chatting with the weapons master Yun Lan and the old man from the Hidden Sword Sect, hoping that he would take this opportunity to ask master Yun Lan to design a new batch of advanced weapons for his family's experts so that the old man from the Hidden Sword Sect could pass on a powerful sword technique to his clansmen and raise the strength of their families.
While the three of them were happily chatting, an ear-piercing alarm rang out once again. It rang out even faster and more urgently than before. It was the guardian alarm, causing Lan Tianhen's expression to become especially ugly and solemn.
What had happened?
Could it be that some other family had slaughtered their way into the Lan family's residence?
"Master Cloud Mist, Brother Hidden Sword, I'm really sorry for disturbing everyone's mood. My clan has some urgent matters that we need to attend to. Why don't you two stay here for a while?"
After pondering for a moment, Lan Tianheng stood up. His gaze landed on the weapons masters Yun Lan and the Hidden Sword Elder as he spoke apologetically.
"The words of the Heavenly Marks Family's Patriarch are too heavy. I have nothing better to do here. Do you want me to accompany you to take a look?"
Yun Lan smiled slightly as she stretched out her white, lily-white hand to stroke the bangs on her forehead, teasing him.
"Then, I'll be making a fool out of you, master. Please..."
Lan Tianhen nodded slightly and made a inviting gesture.
As the successor of weapon master Morin, not only had she inherited and directed the weapons master had forged, but she also had extraordinary strength and connections and had a very high reputation in China. How could she refuse when she spoke like this to Lan Tianheng?
"Since that's the case, I'll also go over to take a look."
Seeing this, the sword elder dressed in green also stood up as he teased.
"Good!" "Please, Brother Hidden Sword!"
Lan Tianhen nodded with a smile and also made a gesture.
As a top cultivator in the martial world, the old man from the Hidden Sword Sect had extraordinary strength. With him accompanying him, Lan Tianhen would be happy to see it. It would be a great shock even if he didn't make a move.
Immediately, Lan Tianheng led Yun Lan and the old man with the sword to the outer courtyard.
In a villa in the depth of the Lan family compound.
A white-haired old man sat by the bedside, looking at the old man who was lying on the sickbed. A strong sense of self-blame surfaced on his aged face.
His name was Xue Xinchen, and he had accompanied the Lan family's old man for many years. However, the Lan family's old man treated him like his own brother.
He had extraordinary strength to help the Lan family's old man overcome many difficulties and dangers. He had a very high reputation in the martial arts world, was also respected in the Lan family, and his status was higher than Lan Tianyang and Lan Tianhen. Most of the time, his will could represent the Lan family's old man who was lying in his sickbed.
"Qingchen, don't worry. No matter what, I will get someone to heal you!"
Looking at the Lan family's old man on the bed, who was extremely weak, the self-reproach on Xue Xinchen's face grew even deeper as he muttered to himself.
Just as he finished speaking, the clansmen's alarm, which had not sounded for many years, rang at this moment, causing his brows to furrow. His expression became especially dark as he said majestically: "Did those guys come looking for us back then?"
As his words fell, he stood up and slowly walked towards the outer courtyard.
On the huge training field in the backyard of the Lan family, nearly a hundred black silhouettes stood there majestically. They held poisonous spikes and were practicing their martial arts in an orderly fashion.
Their equipment was no different from the Ghost Shadow Blood Guards that Ye Xuan had heavily injured. Their auras were even stronger, and they were the most elite Ghost Shadow Blood Guards that the Lan family had nurtured.
Others only knew that the Lan family had Ghost Shadow Blood Guards, but they didn't know that it wasn't just five of them. There was a large group of nearly a hundred people.
Along with the clansmen's alarm, nearly a hundred Ghost Shadow Blood Guards pierced the air with poisonous thorns. They charged towards the outer courtyard that Ye Xuan and his group were in. Their powerful auras were extremely ferocious …
Not only that, almost all of the members of the Lan family and their powerhouses had moved out as soon as they heard the alarm.
Lan Clan outer court.
Ye Xuan stood there expressionlessly with the Soul Breaking Sword in his hand, quietly watching the many guards and experts of the Lan family come out. There wasn't the slightest bit of emotion on his handsome face, only an endless coldness and serenity.
Compared to Ye Xuan's calmness, Lan Wanting had an anxious expression. As a member of the Lan Family, she knew very well what it meant when the Guardian's alarm sounded!
She knew that the power the Lan family possessed and the many powerful warriors they had secretly trained in the past few years were not something the Ye family could compare with.
After all, the Ye Family had been declining year after year. They were no longer as brave as they were before.
It could be said that the elites and elites raised by the Lan family were not something the Ye family could compare with.
Of course, the Ye family also had his advantages, because the Ye family's old man was still alive and he was a true super strong warrior.
It was because of his existence that the Ye Family was able to hold on.
"Ye Xuan, let's go quickly …"
Seeing the unending stream of experts from the back courtyard of the Lan family, as well as the Ghost Shadow Blood Guards flying over, Lan Wanting had an anxious expression on her face. She shook Ye Xuan's arm as anxious words came out of her mouth.
"Don't worry, it'll be fine!"
Ye Xuan lightly shook his head, not moving at all.
He wanted to solve all the problems of the day in one go to prevent himself from getting too much trouble.
"You don't know how our family has developed over the past few years, but just the Ghastly Shadow Blood Guard alone is more than a hundred. Not to mention that our family has other experts, and the old man who hid his sword is also a guest in our family, not to mention that there's also my grandfather's personal bodyguard, Grandpa Xue Xin Chen. None of them is not stronger than Lan Tianyun …"
Seeing that more and more people were coming, Lan Wanting said anxiously.
The heck, why didn't you say so earlier?
Hearing Lan Wanting's words, Ye Xuan's heart went cold. He never thought that the Lan family would have such a deep background. Even experts like the Ghastly Shadow Blood Guard have around a hundred, not to mention the hidden sword wielding old man and the top tier experts like Xue Xinchen …
Ye Xuan was calm on the surface, but his heart was filled with panic.
Although his strength would greatly increase after entering the bedevilment state, with Ye Xuan's current body, being bedeviled wouldn't last for too long. It'd be at most half an hour. To deal with so many experts, it was undoubtedly extremely difficult.
However, he wasn't done pretending. He couldn't just run away in the middle of his act, could he?
This obviously wasn't Ye Xuan's style of doing things. If these guys found out about it, wouldn't they be laughing at him?
Moreover, it was too late for him to leave now. He was surrounded by the powerful warriors of the Lan family.
At this moment, Ye Xuan's eyes flashed. He was still calm and composed as he teasingly said, "Don't worry, it's fine!"
Just as Ye Xuan finished speaking, a cold wind blew and a gale surged out. Nearly a hundred black shadows rushed over from all directions and surrounded Ye Xuan, causing his expression to become extremely grim and unsightly.
These were the Ghost Shadow Blood Guards that Lan Wanting had spoken of.
Not only that, but under everyone's gaze, Lan Tianhen, along with the Hidden Sword Old Man and the weapons master Yun Lan, walked out from the back courtyard of the Lan family, causing the surrounding people to automatically open up a path.
Lan Tianheng nodded slightly. His eyes fell on Lan Tianyuan as a dignified voice came from his mouth.
When his gaze swept across the severely injured Lan Clan guards and the corpses of Lan Pangzi and her mother, his expression immediately darkened and turned ugly. A strong, vicious light flickered in his eyes.
"Cough cough …" Second Brother, it was all Lan Wanting who joined up with that kid, Ye Xuan … "
Before Lan Tianyuan could reply, a weak voice sounded out from the side of the blue sky that was severely injured by Ye Xuan.
He had been taken out of the rockery, treated as an emergency, and bandaged.
"Heaven's will, how did you get injured like this?"
Looking at the heavily injured Lan Tiannan, Lan Tianheng was unquestionably shocked. Shocked words came out of his mouth.
He was well aware of Lan Tianyue's strength. You are the most powerful existence in the Lan family. Not even Lan Tianhen could match you in strength. After all, he was a man of his word.
"Who else can it be? Of course it was that damned brat! He killed Fatty Hua and Fourth Bro's wives … "
Lan Tiangjing's weak words came out of his mouth.
"Second Brother, you must uphold justice for us."
Lan Tianyuan also cried as he spoke. He then looked at Ye Xuan and Lan Wanting with eyes full of undisguised hatred, and gnashed his teeth.
"It was that little slut, Lan Wanting, who joined forces with that brat to try to take over the family's property. Fat Flower saw through it, so they killed to silence us, injuring our people. Second Brother, you have to cut them into pieces to make an example of us …"
It had to be said that this fellow really knew how to distort the truth and fabricate a story.
Lan Wanting started to explain, but she was interrupted by Lan Tianhen's cold words, "You don't have to explain... "If no one died, there might still be room for discussion. However, you all killed Fourth Bro's wife and daughter."
"No matter what the reason is, all of you will die here today. Use your lives in exchange for our lives and give us an explanation!"
"If you make a move, you can die without suffering and leave your corpses intact. If you want to resist, then wait for me to cut you into a thousand pieces."
Lan Tianhen and the others had long been unhappy with the old man leaving the family business to Lan Wanting. Now that they had the chance and excuse to get rid of her in the open, how could Lan Tianheng not be easy to use?
Even if he killed Lan Wanting, it wouldn't be of any use waiting for the old man to wake up. After all, it was already a foregone conclusion!
And he would also change from the vice clan leader to the real clan leader.
Although Lan Wanting had an extremely high reputation in the business world, very few people in the family supported him.
"It's not like that, Second Uncle …"
"There's no need to say more. You guys choose!"
Lan Wan Ting wanted to argue, but was once again interrupted by Lan Tianheng. He tossed a sharp longblade in front of Lan Wanting and Ye Xuan with a resolute tone.
"Wan Ting, don't say anything, leave it to me!"
Seeing this, Ye Xuan's eyes flickered with coldness. Killing intent surged within him as he coldly spoke.
"It seems like you won't cry until you've lost the coffin!" What were they still standing there for? Go and capture them! "
Seeing Ye Xuan's reaction, Lan Tianheng's killing intent surged as he furiously and authoritatively spoke.
As soon as his words fell, numerous members of the Lan family and the Ghastly Shadow Blood Guard charged towards Ye Xuan and Lan Wanting with the intent to kill.
Ye Xuan held the Absolute Soul Sword in his hand, and his killing intent surged. As he watched the battle that was about to begin, a vigorous voice sounded out.
