Star Odyssey - Chapter 1547
Chapter 1547: Battle Of Dragon Mountain
Wang Yun lifted her head to look up at Lu Yin. She slowly and clearly stated, “Lu. Yin.”
Everyone turned to stare at Lu Yin in shock. Lu- Lu Yin? A member of the Lu family?
“Impossible! He’s Long Qi!” Ni Huang protested. His eyes grew sharp enough to pierce bone as he glared at Wang Yun. “You’ve mistaken him for the wrong person.”
Wang Yun remained stubborn. “I did not.”
Wang Si moved to confront Ni Huang. “Senior, what do you want to do?”
Ni Huang shifted his attention to Wang Si. “Long Qi has already proven his bloodline, showing that he is someone from the White Dragon Clan. Thus, how could his surname possibly be Lu? How could he be someone from the Forsaken Land?”
“Regardless of whether he is or not, test his blood again,” Bai Teng demanded.
Long Ke angrily shouted, “Bai Teng, you must have lost your mind!”
“Patriarch Long, there is nothing wrong with having another blood test, or could it be that you want to cover up the fact that your White Dragon Clan knew that he’s from the Lu family all along?” Elder Xi Zi accused.
Ni Huang raged, “It looks like the Celestial Frost Sect and the Wang family have already worked things out in advance. You already know that my White Dragon Clan will marry Shenwu’s Sky, and thus you want to destroy us!”
Bai Teng looked up. “Senior, Shi Xin has already gained the upper hand in his match with Long Qi. Long Qi clearly cannot defeat Shi Xin, so there’s no need for any of this.”
“He is Lu Yin! I haven’t remembered wrong!” Wang Yun shouted.
Lu Yin wanted to kill her.
Xia Taili was stunned. Things were getting much too exciting! She looked at Lu Yin. There was no way that this person could be from the Lu family, as that would be too much. The existence of such a person would shake the entire Perennial World.
To her side, Xia Xing frowned and stared at Lu Yin. While this accusation seemed far fetched, it was not impossible either. With this thought, he said, “Senior Ni Huang, whether it’s true or not, just conduct another blood test. If he is from the Lu family, then the blood of your White Dragon Clan will not last for long within his body. With the time that has passed, the blood in his body right now is clearly his own.”
Ni Huang turned to look at Lu Yin. Despite being a Semi-Progenitor who had lived for uncounted years, he was nervous at this moment. Bai Teng was correct. There was no reason not to go through with this test. However, Ni Huang had also heard of Wang Yun and how she had violated the Wang family’s rules to enter the Forsaken Land without permission. That was why she had been punished, and at this moment, she was the one claiming that Long Qi was really from the Forsaken Land? And from the Lu family at that?
If Long Qi really was someone from the Forsaken Land, then his White Dragon Clan would be nothing more than the Perennial World’s greatest joke.
Long Ke stared at Lu Yin, the patriarch’s palms sweating.
Everyone was staring at Lu Yin.
Qing Chen softly said, “Long Qi, go and give a drop of blood to verify your identity. Don’t worry, you are a Gate Master of Humility’s Gate, and you are someone whom Commander Mu regards very highly. Anyone who accuses you wrongly will not enjoy a pleasant ending.”
Wang Si’s eyes grew dark, and she glanced down at Wang Yun. Qing Chen’s words were true; if Wang Yun really had slandered Long Qi just now, then she would not only have offended the White Dragon Clan, but also Humility’s Gate.
Lu Yin stood there, frozen in place. He felt as though his heart had fallen to the bottom of the valley. He had only had enough of Long Xi’s blood to pass the test once, but her blood had already left his body. There was only his own blood left in his body, and it was indeed the blood of the Lu family.
“Long Qi, go to the Ancestral Dragon Altar to test your blood again,” Ni Huang ordered while staring at Lu Yin.
Everyone stared at Lu Yin.
The slitted, scarlet eyes off in the distant sky had already disappeared, but everyone knew that the Progenitors were fighting in the distance.
As everyone watched, Lu Yin returned to the Ancestral Dragon Altar, one step at a time. He proceeded very slowly, as he was waiting for Mister Mu. At this moment, only Mister Mu could save him.
However, even when he arrived at the statue of the Ancestral Python, Mister Mu still had not appeared.
Ni Huang stood directly in front of Lu Yin, staring at the youth intently. Despite his many years of life, Ni Huang had never been this nervous before, not even in life or death situations. This matter was something that would affect the reputation of the entire White Dragon Clan.
Bai Teng and others were equally nervous. If Long Qi was truly someone from the Forsaken Land, then the White Dragon Clan would be forced to bear an indescribable burden while also becoming the biggest joke of the four ruling powers. This would be the best possible outcome for the Celestial Frost Sect, as they had only recently learned that their Junior Progenitor was dead.
Lu Yin’s identity was intimately connected to the balance between the four ruling powers, and it could even affect the entire Perennial World.
“Place a drop of blood,” Ni Huang commanded in a deep voice.
Lu Yin took a deep breath. He raised his hand, but just as he was about to let his blood drip out, a familiar, though absolutely terrifying, creepy laugh rang out. “Gaga, it’s so lively here!”
The little doll appeared atop the Ancestral Dragon Altar, and the expressions on Ni Huang and others’ faces instantly transformed. “Shaman God?!”
The moment the words were spoken, everyone’s five senses became confused.
Shaman God’s doll flashed and suddenly appeared right next to Lu Yin. “So it’s the Lu family’s blood, right? I’ll have to take this back for testing. You humans no longer have the Lu family, so we’ll have the Lu family appear from my Aeternus. We’ll give you a taste of facing the Champions’ Stage, and we’ll even give those ancient ones a taste of the Wind God’s techniques, gaga.” After the doll finished speaking, Lu Yin was dragged into the true universe by an irresistible force and taken away from Dragon Mountain.
“Don’t even think about it!” Qing Chen shouted. A power that isolated the void knocked Shaman God’s doll out of the true universe, and Lu Yin fell down.
Simultaneously, a drop of clear water appeared before suddenly becoming massive. The water swirled around the Ancestral Dragon Altar as well as everyone else around it. This was Qing Chen’s innate gift: Clear Water Purification.
“I wanted to take advantage of this little ceremony where the White Dragon Clan worships their so-called ancestor to destroy an entire group of humanity’s elites, though I certainly did not expect to happen to run into a member of the Lu family! This child needs to be taken back to Aeternus.” A loud voice fell upon the area, shattering the void. The resulting spatial cracks created an opening hundreds of meters tall, and within it was the frame of a massive corpse king.
“Corpse God?” Ni Huang shouted. “How dare you step foot onto my Dragon Mountain!”
Lu Yin fell to the ground. He looked up to see that both Shaman God and Corpse God had appeared. One by one, the gathered Semi-Progenitors all attacked.
Bai Teng suddenly appeared in front of Lu Yin with a sneer. “Boy, stop struggling!”
He stretched out a hand to grab Lu Yin, but Long Ke appeared before Lu Yin to face Bai Teng. “He has not taken the blood test yet, so the truth still has not been determined. Bai Teng, stand down.”
“Do you really want to keep deceiving yourself? The kid was clearly stalling for time, and he definitely doesn’t dare take the blood test,” Bai Teng snapped back.
Long Ke had definitely been able to see the same thing, but he would never admit to it, as doing so would ruin his White Dragon Clan. “Bullshit! The White Dragon Clan will protect Long Qi! Anybody here who dares to attack Long Qi will become an enemy of my White Dragon Clan!”
An entire group of the White Dragon Clan’s powerhouses stepped forward.
Wang Si shouted, “Long Ke, are you actually helping the Lu family?”
Even as she spoke, the silhouette of a mountain appeared behind her body. The entire region was suppressed by an incredible pressure. How could anyone be a Semi-Progenitor’s opponent?
At that moment, a sword swept out. The hunched old man, Liu Song, appeared, and he confronted Wang Si. “Nothing has been proven yet. Wang Si, you are as impatient as ever.”
“Liu Song, so your Liu family does want to protect the Lu family’s remnants!” Wang Si shouted.
Liu Song shook his head. “He is clearly a member of the White Dragon Clan, so how could he be a survivor from the Lu family? Wang Si, your stubbornness does not allow you to see the truth?”
Wang Si was infuriated, as the old man was blatantly pretending to be confused.
Lu Yin continued to move back, and he also put his universal armor on. He clearly understood the current situation. Even if the White Dragon Clan was fully convinced that Lu Yin was someone from the Forsaken Land or even that he was a survivor of the Lu family, they would never allow him to be exposed. All that he needed to do was slip away.
“Kid, come with me.” Elder Xi Zi emerged from the void and grabbed at Lu Yin. An elder from the White Dragon Clan appeared on the opposite side of Lu Yin to block Elder Xi Zi. “Do you really want to fight here on my Dragon Mountain?”
Elder Xi Zi did not reply, and he simply glanced over at Shi Xin.
Shi Xin frowned, but he still charged for Lu Yin. However, another one of the White Dragon Clan’s Envoy’s appeared to stop Shi Xin.
At this time, all of the experts who had arrived with the Wang family and the Celestial Frost Sect attempted to capture Lu Yin. However, the White Dragon Clan stopped them all.
The White Dragon Clan’s other guests remained at the sidelines and slowly retreated from the multiple battles breaking out.
If Lu Yin was proven to be someone from the Forsaken Land, then even the White Dragon Clan would have to arrest him. On the other hand, as long as nothing was proven, the White Dragon Clan had a valid excuse to take action.
“Follow me.” Lu Yin heard the eager voice of a White Dragon Clan elder.
Lu Yin kept looking around, as he was looking for a way to escape.
“Follow me!” The White Dragon Clan elder grabbed Lu Yin’s arm, intending to drag the youth away. Lu Yin had basically been confirmed to be someone from the Forsaken Land, so none of the clan elders felt any need to be polite. The youth would be taken away and quietly disposed of later.
Lu Yin instantly threw the elder’s hands away and shot into the true universe, racing to leave Dragon Mountain.
The White Dragon Clan elder was enraged, and he shouted, “You bastard!”
He also tore into the true universe. The elder raised his hands, putting tremendous pressure on Lu Yin from all directions. This elder was an Envoy who had passed several tribulations. On the rear battlefield, Lu Yin had the Cloudguard Robes, which had protected him from such powerhouses, but he had long since lost that item. Thus, the stellular energy blasted Lu Yin out of the true universe, and his body smashed into the ground.
“Nice armor. Now come with this old man.” The elder once again grabbed at Lu Yin.
An astral chessboard appeared beneath Lu Yin’s feet, and he tried to move himself, only to discover that he could not do so. The void around him had been twisted, and all of the star energy had been affected and suppressed by stellular energy. The elder’s eyes were cold as he stared at Lu Yin. “You animal! How dare you impersonate someone from my White Dragon Clan and cause us to be humiliated? You will suffer the worst punishment possible, and you will beg for death!”
As he spoke, the elder could not refrain from slapping a palm at Lu Yin. This attack contained stellular energy, and it shot straight towards Lu Yin.
Fortunately, he had his universal armor for protection, and Lu Yin was merely knocked backwards, still uninjured. Without the armor, he would have been badly wounded.
“I’m from the White Dragon Clan!” Lu Yin protested.
The elder sneered and responded, “Then return with this old man.”
They were on Dragon Mountain, and it was full of the White Dragon Clan’s powerhouses.
Suddenly, another person appeared. This person was the old man with whom Lu Yin had agreed to return to the Fifth Mainland with, and he casually swept the White Dragon Clan elder away.
Lu Yin was overjoyed to see the old man, as it was impossible for Lu Yin to escape from Dragon Mountain on his own.
“Kid, run!” The old man grabbed Lu Yin and tore through the void.
As a Semi-Progenitor, no one could stop the old man unless they were also a Semi-Progenitor.
Suddenly, the sky and the void around Dragon Mountain warped and grew distorted. How could one of the four ruling powers not have a sourcebox array protecting a place like Dragon Mountain? It was the White Dragon Clan’s ancestral home after all.
The old man was stopped by the array, and his expression twisted. “This is a problem.”
Lu Yin stared at the sourcebox array that shrouded Dragon Mountain, and his heart fell. This was not something that a Semi-Progenitor could break through, as this was one of the four ruling powers’ defensive measures. Why had Mister Mu still not appeared?
Off in the distance, Ni Huang was fighting against Corpse God, and the old man’s expression grew dark. This matter had to be completely buried on Dragon Mountain. As for the people from the Celestial Frost Sect and the Wang family, he would find a way to convince them to conceal the matter, though he would have to pay a terrible price. As for Long Qi, the old man had already considered 10,000 means of torture to use before killing the imposter.
The old man did his best, and he tried to force his way through the sourcebox array, but his efforts were all useless. He even suffered from the sourcebox array’s retaliation, which caused him to spit out a mouthful of blood. He bitterly said, “Kid, we can’t escape today. Tell this old man, what did that person tell you?”
