"Now, are we qualified?"


Hearing the cold and playful words of the Marquis of Xiaowu, when they looked at the cold and indifferent faces of Xu TianNu, Jian Hao, and Gu Ling, Li De Zhong and Li Dewu all felt a murderous aura radiating from their bodies. Li De Zhong, Li De Wu and the rest all had dark and gloomy expressions on their faces.


He fell into a long silence!


If they were to fight against the Xiaowu Clan and Xu Tiannan, they would definitely lose!


Not only were they not a match for the four earth realm Martial Lords, even the middle level experts were not a match for them. After all, they had brought the Li family and the Xia family was an elite expert of the Ancient Sword Sect.


Just the number of middle level experts that they, the Li family members, had fostered was far from enough …


If they were to start a full-scale war, then their Li Family would be annihilated at the feet of the Xiaowu Clan and Xu Tianxiong today.


However, if they really were to search the courtyard for Ye Xuan, then it would undoubtedly cause the Li family to lose all face. Moreover, there was a high possibility that they'd be able to find Ye Xuan.


By then, the situation would be even worse!


"It seems like we have the right to do so now?"


Seeing that he had fallen into silence with Li Dewu and Li Dezhong, the playful expression on Marquis Xia Wu's face became even more intense as he teased them.


"Since that's the case, why are you still standing there? Search!" Even if I have to dig three feet into the ground, I have to find Ye Xuan! "


At this moment, Xu Tianyi also waved his hand and gave the order without hesitation.


"Stop!"


With his order, the large amount of experts they brought with them rushed into the Li family courtyard without hesitation, causing the many Li family members to clench their fists until they were crackling, and their eyes were filled with unwillingness.


It had to be said that Li Dewu's angry roars were still extremely useful, causing the Xu and Xia Family experts who entered in a line to stop in their tracks.


At this moment, the Li Family clansmen and experts took a step forward and blocked the Xu and Xia Family's experts.


"What is it? Li Dewu, you plan to fight to the death with us? "


Seeing that, Xu Tiannan raised an eyebrow and coldly said.


"Big brother!"


Just as Li Dewu was about to speak, Old Li San ran over in a hurry.


Looking at the tense atmosphere and the group of swordsman Gu Ling, a serious look flashed across Old Li San's eyes. He gave Li Dewu an OK look without anyone noticing.


He was clearly hinting to Li Dewu that Ye Xuan had already been arranged by him.


If it was before, Old Li San would be filled with resentment towards Ye Xuan and wished for nothing more than to kill him and hand him over. He didn't understand why Li Dewu would take such a huge risk to protect Ye Xuan.


Thus, after Old Li San brought Ye Xuan to the Li family's old man, his attitude towards Ye Xuan had undergone a tremendous change. He was in complete admiration of Ye Xuan.


Ye Xuan's performance in the Li family's old patriarch's courtyard had completely shocked him. Not only had Ye Xuan dispelled all of the Li family's old man's mental problems, but he was also able to extend the life of the old man and increase his vitality.


Right now, Ye Xuan was happily chatting with his grandfather in the backyard. He's like a brother to the point of sworn brothers, how could Old Li not be shocked?


How could this not shock Old Li San?


He wasn't an idiot. Back at the Old Master's residence, he'd truly realized how terrifying and extraordinary Ye Xuan was.


Right now, he only wanted to desperately defend Ye Xuan and curry favor with him, hoping that Ye Xuan would forget the past enmity with him.


"Li Dewu, our patience is limited. Hurry up and move your men away!"


At this moment, the Sword Hero's gaze also landed on Li Dewu's body. The sword images in his eyes rotated as he coldly spoke.


"Brother Gu, are you really going to join forces with the Marquis of Xuanwu and Xu Tiannan to attack my Li Clan?"


Li Dewu clenched his fist so hard that it made 'ka ka ka' sounds. His gaze fell upon the Sword Hero as he spoke in a neither humble nor haughty manner.


"My Ancient Sword Sect has never done anything worldly nor has it had any intentions of targeting your Li Family! Ye Xuan killed my junior brother and many disciples of the Ancient Sword Sect. My goal here is Ye Xuan, my only goal is Ye Xuan! If anyone dares to harbor Ye Xuan, protect Ye Xuan, or hinder me from killing him, then that person will be the enemy of everyone in the entire Ancient Sword Sect.


An intense cold light flashed in the eyes of the swordsman Gu Ling, and the long sword in her hand was suddenly unsheathed and slashed out.


The terrifying sword Qi had completely split a huge rock next to it into two, as cold words came out of its mouth.


"Since you've come here for Ye Xuan, saying that my Li family harboured him, then my entire Li family can be searched by you!"



"But in the end, what if you can't find Ye Xuan?" "Shouldn't you give my Li family a satisfactory answer? Otherwise, if word spreads, wouldn't my Li family lose face and be a joke to others? If it's just one person, they will dare come to my Li family's courtyard to search?"


Li Dewu's eyes flashed with wisdom as he slowly loosened his grip on his fist. His gaze fell upon the Xiahou Clan, Xu Tiannan, and the Sword Hero. Cold and authoritative words came out of his mouth.


You can search everyone in the Li Family, but what if you can't find the person?


Hearing Li Dewu's words, the gazes of Xu Tianming, the Marquis of Xiaowu, and the Sword Hero turned cold. The three of them glanced at each other and could see the killing intent in each other's eyes.


Xu TianNu turned his head, his gaze landing on Li Dewu as he coldly asked, "Then what do you want us to do?"


"I won't make things difficult for you. Since there are some matters that are wrong, then I naturally have to apologize. If you can't find Ye Xuan, then you have to apologize." "Then you only need to apologize and admit your wrongs to my Li family. How about it?"


Li Dewu's eyes were overflowing with coldness as he charged straight towards Xu Tianxiong, the Xiaowu Clan, and the other two.


"Big brother …"


Li De Zhong had an unresigned expression. He wanted to say something, but was interrupted by Li De Wu, causing him to be left with no choice but to remain silent.


"Alright, I'll do as you say!"


"Search!"


In the next moment, Xu Tianyi, the Marquis of Xiaowang, and the Sword Hero spoke in a low voice.


whoosh whoosh whoosh … *


With their words, a large number of experts rushed out like a rushing flood towards the Li family's courtyard at an extremely fast speed.


This time, Li Dewu only watched coldly, not stopping him.


Deep in the Li family's backyard, there was a quiet little courtyard.


In the small courtyard, there was a towering tree that was in need of six people holding hands.


Under this towering tree, there was a stone table and six stone stools. Next to them, there was a unique looking wooden house.


The small courtyard was filled with all sorts of precious plants and trees, causing the small courtyard to be filled with the rich fragrance of farmland, causing people to feel inexplicably comfortable living here.


This was the Li family's old man's residence.


Currently, Ye Xuan was inside the Li family's old man's residence, playing Go with him while chatting with him while drinking wine. He appeared exceptionally carefree and cozy, causing him to feel extremely relaxed.


The Li family's old man looked to be in his eighties, with a head of long, gray hair. His face was covered with wrinkles, and because he was old, his physical body gradually weakened.


However, his eyes were as sharp as an eagle's.


And even though he was old, he was an interesting person to talk to. He spoke of the many strange things that he'd experienced when he was young.


Of course, Ye Xuan would also tell him some interesting things. The two of them were attracted by each other's vast knowledge and stories, and were extremely fond of each other …


"Little brother Ye Xuan, do you really think I'll be able to cure my depleted blood energy?"


As if he'd thought of something, the Li family's old man raised his head and directed his gaze towards Ye Xuan as he asked with a face full of curiosity and anticipation.


"Of course!"


Ye Xuan raised his head and gulped down the good wine in the gourd as he laughed loudly.


"Then... "Then how should we treat it?"


Old Man Li picked up the white chess piece and placed it on the Go board before asking.


"Your qi and blood is exhausted only because you were previously heavily injured for many years and have yet to recover. All you need to do is to heal the injuries that have been troubling you for so many years, and then use precious medicinal ingredients to improve yourself.


After pausing for a moment, he continued, "Furthermore, you have been obsessed with martial arts for the past few years. Your martial arts cultivation has long since reached the level of the Free and Unrestrained Heavenly Realm's Martial Ancestor Realm. However, because your vital energy and blood are depleted and your cultivation technique is too trashy, you are unable to break through!"


"Sigh... I naturally know that the blood in my body is exhausted due to the injuries sustained during my battle with the Xu Family's Ancestor, but over the years, I have already searched for countless famous doctors, and I have even begun to learn medicine myself. I have read countless medical books to transfer them, but none of them have any effect! "


Hearing Ye Xuan's words, the Li family's old man revealed a bitter expression. He couldn't help but lightly sigh as low and helpless words came out of his mouth.


"As for the cultivation technique you mentioned being too trashy, there's no other way around it. Back then, when I fought with the ancestor of the Xu family, it was to snatch a peerless cultivation technique found in the ancient tomb …" In the end, he obtained it. All these years, he had already become a Martial Ancestor, but I … "Sigh …"



"I know a bit about medical techniques and it might be able to solve the difficult problem on your body. If elder brother trusts me, why don't you let me give it a try!"


Ye Xuan said with a smile.


"Of course I trust you. If it wasn't for the fact that you had treated my injuries with that injection, I wouldn't have been able to sit here and chat and drink with you!"


The Li family's old man laughed loudly as he spoke.


Before Ye Xuan could reply, Old Man Li continued, "Old man, you said that I need those things to cure my injuries, and I'll immediately send someone to …"


"Quick, quick, quick, here! Search one by one! "


However, before the Li family's old man could finish speaking, he was interrupted by hurried footsteps and a low shout.


Following the sound of the voice, a large number of armed experts of the Xia clan and the Xu family burst through the closed doors of the small courtyard, breaking through the rare silence and surrounding the small courtyard so tightly that not even a drop of water could trickle through.


"Little brother, you sit here for a while, I'll go out and take a look!"


This sudden turn of events caused the Li family's old man's gaze to turn cold. A cold light flickered in his eyes as he threw down his words and started walking down the stairs.


"What kind of people are you? Who let you in? "


Walking down the stairs, seeing the large amount of Xia and Xu family experts gathered in the courtyard, the Li family's old man's eyes burned with fury as he spoke.


"Old thing, scram to the side. We're currently under orders to search for Ye Xuan. Stop messing around here …"


Hearing the words of the Li family's old man, he looked at the Li family's old man who had walked down the stairs. A killing intent flashed across the eyes of the Xia family's expert that had mastered the Astral Energy Transformation.


"Crack!"


However, before his palm could land on the Li family's old man, killing intent flashed in the Li family's old man's eyes. His shriveled palm shot out like lightning and struck the Xia family's expert's neck.


The sound of bones breaking could be heard.


Before the Xia Clan expert could even react, his neck was snapped by the Li family's old man, ending his life.


"Bam!"


The Li family's old man casually swung the body of the Xia family expert flying.


"This …"


"Dammit, dammit!"


"Where did this old man come from? You dare to be so reckless, kill him!"


Seeing this, the expressions of the many Xia and Xu family experts that rushed into the small courtyard couldn't help but change. The strong killing intent in their eyes surged as they roared and charged like wolves and tigers towards the Li family's old man …


"A bunch of reckless fools!"


The Li family's old man's sharp eyes flashed with a cold light. He took a step forward, and a fierce and terrifying aura spread out, sweeping up all the leaves on the ground.


"Swish, swish, swish …"


He stomped his foot. The leaves suddenly turned into darts and concealed weapons as they charged towards the experts from the Xu and Xia families at breakneck speeds.


Before they could even react, their lives were cut off by their necks or submerged within their bodies.


A gust of cold wind blew past. The small courtyard was littered with corpses!


Only one person, the Li family's old man, stood in the courtyard with a frightened expression, his legs trembling uncontrollably as he gazed at the dead bodies of his companions.


Never in his wildest dreams did he expect that this frail old man in front of him would have such terrifying strength. With just a stomp of his foot, he had killed many of his companions. This frightened him to the point that his guts were broken.


This was way too freaking awesome!


Even though the Li family's old man was injured, he was still a Martial Marquis at the peak of the Four Symbols Earth Realm. His control of the force had already reached the acme of perfection, and it was incomparable to those who had just entered the Four Directions Earth Realm.


"Get back here and bring someone to carry these corpses away!"


The Li family's old man looked at the chattering that was trembling, and his face was full of fear as if he had seen a ghost. His eyes flickered with a biting light, and an imposing and ancient voice sounded out from his mouth.


"Yes …" "It's …"


Hearing the words of the Li family's old man, the Xu family expert's face was filled with terror. His face was trembling, and he subconsciously replied!


"Swish …"


In the next moment, as if he had been granted amnesty, he abruptly ran 250 yards away with his legs and quickly disappeared from the small courtyard …
