In the golden hall of the dukedom.
Xu TianNu sat at the head of the table. The rage in his eyes was boiling as he clenched his fists so tightly that they made 'ka ka' sounds. He looked to be in a rage.
Beside him, both the Marquis of Xiaowu and the Sword Hero had ugly expressions on their faces. Their faces were filled with rage and unwillingness.
Not only were they unable to find Ye Xuan during the siege of the Li family, they had disgraced the Li family, causing them to lose face. In the end, they were taught a lesson by the Li family's old man, causing others to laugh.
Whether it was Xu Tian Nu, the Marquis of Xiaowu, or the Sword Hero, they all felt extremely embarrassed by this outcome. They felt that they had lost face and were wronged.
The atmosphere in the hall was depressing and depressing.
"Patriarch, Uncle Xia, Uncle Gu, don't be angry anymore. The Li family won't be able to be arrogant for long … Although we weren't able to find Ye Xuan when we went to the Li family, we did reap some rewards. At the very least, we now understand the Li family's hidden strength! "
"Knowing that Li De has become a Martial Marquis and the Li family's Old Man has broken through from the Earth Realm to become a Martial Ancestor Realm expert is undoubtedly helpful to our future actions and plans, right?"
Seeing this, Xu Hai, who was standing at the side, could not help but comfort her.
"Yes, yes, yes … "Second Young Master is right …"
"Exactly, Patriarch, don't be angry …"
Hearing Xu Hai's words, the other people in the hall all agreed with his reply at this moment.
The moment their comforting words fell on the ears of Xu Tianyi, the Marquis of Xiaowu, and the Sword Hero, the rage in their hearts dissipated quite a bit.
At this moment, the Sword Hero said with a deep voice, "Nephew Hai Yang is right. This trip is still quite helpful to us. Furthermore, even though that old man from the Li Clan has broken through to the Unfettered Sky Realm and become a Martial Ancestor Realm cultivator, we still have many allies that have yet to arrive … "
At this moment, he also laughed out loud and said: "That's right, although a Martial Ancestor Realm expert is terrifying, once Chen Beixuan, the Chen family's Vice Patriarch, Li Yang and the other Vice Sect Leader of the Astral Energy Sect arrive, together with the Martial Ancestor of the Xu family who is in seclusion, we will be able to easily crush their Li family to the ground!"
"I wonder when Li Yang and Chen Beixuan will arrive at Yu state?" Not long ago, my Patriarch was in secluded meditation. I wonder when he'll come out ….
Xu TianNu frowned slightly as he spoke in a low tone.
"Brother Xu, that's fine. We're not in a hurry. At worst, we can just let that Li family live for a few more days."
The Marquis of Xuanwu didn't care about this at all as he spoke in a rather carefree manner.
Pausing for a moment, his eyebrows knitted together slightly as he asked in puzzlement, "But... We searched the entire Li Family and still couldn't find Ye Xuan's whereabouts. Where did he hide? "
He turned around and his gaze landed on Xu Xingluo, as he furiously said, "Xu Xingluo, you swore earlier that Ye Xuan was hiding in the Li family, and now that the search was fruitless, what do you have to say?"
After being scolded by Xu Tiannan and feeling his angry gaze, Xu Xingluo hesitated before clenching her teeth and saying, "Patriarch, even now I dare to say that Ye Xuan is hiding within the Li family's Li family estate, and in the little wooden house where the Li family's Old Master lives."
Hearing this, Xu Tianxiong, the Ancient Spirit of the Sword Hero, and the Marquis of Xia narrowed their eyes. A wise light flashed across their eyes, and the Ancient Spirit of the Sword Hero coldly spoke, "Why do you dare to be so sure?"
"Because in the entire Li family, only the Li family's old man's wooden house was not searched. Moreover, based on my understanding of the Li family's old man, even though he has a weird temper, he would never act rashly against a junior. Not to mention, due to my cultivation technique, my perception was extremely sharp.
Xu Xingluo explained.
"Indeed, I felt an aura from the wooden house …"
The Marquis of Xuanwu nodded slightly and spoke at this moment.
"This means that Ye Xuan is indeed hiding in the Li Family. This way, we won't have to trouble ourselves too much!"
The Sword Hero, Gu Ling, raised her glass and drank all the wine in it with a single gulp as she teased Ye Zichen.
As long as they confirmed that Ye Xuan was hiding in the Li Family, they wouldn't need to spend any more manpower or financial resources to search. They only needed to keep an eye on the Li Family, and when Chen Beixuan and Li Yang arrived, they could invite the ancestor of the Xu Family to go to the Li Family.
If the Li family insisted on not admitting it, then they had sufficient reasons to destroy the Li family.
"Since that's the case, then I'll let Ye Xuan stay in the Li family estate for a while longer. I'll let the Li family exist for a few more days!"
The Marquis of Xuanwu and Xu Tianxiong looked at each other and laughed out loud.
"Xia Ying, send someone to keep an eye on the Li Family!"
A cold light flashed in the Marquis's eyes as he instructed Xia Ying who was beside him.
"Xu Xingluo, Xu Hai …" The two of you are also sending people to keep an eye on the Li Family! "
At this moment, Xu Tiannan coldly ordered.
Xia Ying, Xu Xingluo, Xu Hai, and the others also clasped their fists and said in a low voice.
"Come, Brother Gu, let's drink …"
The anger and depression in Xu TianNu and his men's hearts were swept away as they raised their wine cups and laughed loudly.
"Alright, I'll drink to my heart's content today. It won't stop until I'm drunk..."
The next day, when the morning sunlight shined onto the courtyard in the Li family's courtyard, Ye Xuan, who sat cross-legged on the ancient tree, gradually opened his eyes …
The instant he opened his eyes, the resplendent golden light disappeared into his clothes.
Yesterday, after drinking with the Li family's old man in the wine cellar, he didn't go to his room to sleep, but instead went out to cultivate and improve his strength.
The Li family's old man's courtyard was located in a unique position at the Twin Dragon Caves. The Yin Qi was dense at night, and the Yang Qi during the day was abundant. It was the best place for Ye Xuan to cultivate the Yin Yang Tyrant Body Technique.
A day and night of cultivation here was equivalent to five days of closed door cultivation outside. This caused Ye Xuan to feel extremely comfortable.
Although dew was everywhere after a night, Ye Xuan's clothes and hair weren't stained with even a speck of dust.
Ye Xuan stood up and stretched lazily. The crackling sounds of his bones made Ye Xuan feel extremely comfortable. He exerted force through his feet, jumped down from the tree, and steadily landed in the courtyard.
"Brother, the cultivation technique you're cultivating is quite unique. It actually absorbs the Supreme Yin Yang Qi of heaven and earth!" In this world where spiritual energy is gradually becoming scarce and thin, this method of yours is truly mysterious. "
Old Man Li, who sat beneath a tree and drank his morning tea, looked at Ye Xuan, who leaped down from the tree.
Of course, he didn't have the slightest intention of killing Ye Xuan and stealing his cultivation technique. Even though Ye Xuan's cultivation technique made his heart beat even faster.
"I'm sorry, it's just an incomplete martial art. If you want to try it, I can pass it on to you!"
Hearing this, Ye Xuan couldn't help but smile as he calmly spoke.
"Come on, you pass it to me, I can't cultivate it either!" "You are going on the path of training your outer force skills, and I, your brother, have trained my inner force for many years, and looking at my age and my weak body, you want me to train my inner force skills. Isn't that just mocking me?"
The Li family's old man smiled as he shook his head. He took a sip of tea and laughed loudly.
"Well... "Bro, I made a cup for you too!"
After pausing for a moment, he raised his hand and pointed to another cup of tea on the stone table.
"Mm, good tea …" The fragrance of the tea was rich and the taste was mellow. Moreover, there was a sweetness in the bitterness, giving off a kind of astringency. If I'm not wrong, these are the top eighteen of the Xihu Dynasty, top quality Da Hong Pao? Bro, you've really troubled yourself! "
Ye Xuan raised his teacup to his mouth and tasted it. His eyes narrowed and a look of enjoyment appeared on his face. He had an expression of admiration as he spoke.
"Haha …" "Brother, you are indeed knowledgeable. It is one thing to be able to recognize that it is a top quality Da Hong Pao, but you even managed to guess where it came from. I am truly impressed!"
Old Man Li laughed loudly as he heard Ye Xuan's words.
"Sorry for the ridicule..."
Ye Xuan smiled as he waved it off.
"Sigh... The mother tree of Mount Wu was naturally the best. However, I cannot take out that item, nor do I know what it tastes like. In this life, if you can have a taste, there will be no regrets! "
The Li family's old man had a face full of regret, yet also had a hint of longing.
The mother tree of the Wu Yi Mountain, Da Hong Pao, was listed as a World Heritage List a hundred years ago.
"Heh heh... Even though the mother tree of the Wu Yi Mountain, the Da Hong Pao, is extremely famous for being the head of tens of thousands of teas, its smell is still nothing more than that. "
Hearing the Li family's old man's words and seeing his fascinated expression, Ye Xuan couldn't help but tease him.
"Bro, you've drunk before?"
Old Man Li was stunned as he asked in astonishment.
A very, very long time ago, you drank it twice. This tea is nothing compared to the blood-colored robe I planted in the starry sky. If you have the chance, I'll take you to my headquarters to have a seat.
Ye Xuan laughed as he spoke, but as if he'd thought of something, the smile on his face vanished and his expression gradually dimmed …
The reason for that was because he had realized that the headquarters of his Demonic God Palace had long since been razed to the ground by Emperor Qing and the others and turned into a pile of rubble.
Furthermore, he had spent countless amounts of time and effort to get that Starry Sky Blood Cloak. Most likely, those guys had already gotten it for themselves.
"Starry blood robes?" It's said that only legendary immortals can drink tea that grows in the vast starry sky. Just by tasting it, it can increase one's vital energy and blood, prolong one's life, and cure all illnesses? "
The Li family's old man didn't notice the words on Ye Xuan's face, and was instead attracted by his words. He couldn't help but be greatly shocked. His face was filled with deep astonishment and shock, and words that had lost control came out of his mouth …
Ye Xuan lightly smiled as he nodded his head …
"Then little brother, your identity …"
The Li family's old man couldn't help but ask.
"Brother, that's all in the past …"
Ye Xuan couldn't help but smile wryly as he lightly shook his head.
After a pause, the bitter smile on his face disappeared and was replaced with determination.
"However, one day, I'll let you have a taste of that blood-colored robe …."
"Good!" I'll wait! Come, little brother, have some tea! "
Feeling the change in Ye Xuan's mood, the Li family's old man didn't ask any further questions. Instead, he patted Ye Xuan's shoulder with a smile.
"Drink your tea..."
Ye Xuan lightly nodded his head and spoke with a smile.
After they finished drinking their tea, Li Dewu and Old Li San brought two Li Family guards with them as they walked in carrying a red wooden chest. From their mouths came respectful words.
"Old Gramps, Young Master Xuan …" All the medicinal ingredients have been prepared! "
