Chapter 297: Purgatory!
“Join!” A low but forceful voice suddenly sounded!
At the same time, the crowd saw a silver star suddenly land and cover the broken Xuan formation.
The moment the two forces made contact, they immediately merged.
The originally dim area became brighter in an instant!
The Xuan formation—which was previously dying—instantly stabilized with this injection of force.
The crowd looked over and saw a gray figure slowly walking out of nowhere.
Sun Zhongyan saw that person and was elated.
Who else could the incoming person be if it wasnt Tian Lu Academys director, Ye Zhiting
Ye Zhiting was still wearing that dirty, gray cotton shirt while holding a fan in his hands.
Not a single force ripple was coming from but, and he looked very simple, nothing different from an average elder.
However, everyone present knew that he was the strongest here!
When the many elders and students from the academy saw Ye Zhiting, they all unwittingly heaved a sigh of relief.
Cheng Han and Fu Yunshan—who were secretly observing from afar—were shocked as they didnt expect Ye Zhiting to appear at this time.
“What a timely appearance!” said Cheng Han with clenched teeth as he shot a deadly glare at that figure.
Fu Yunshan couldnt help but whisper, “I havent seen him in years, and it seems like Elder Ye has become stronger…”
Cheng Han became even more frustrated. Of course, I can see this! I originally thought that I could win against Ye Zhiting when I came to the Imperial City this time and gain back all my lost face.
Cheng Han was still pretty regretful when Ye Zhiting didnt appear.
When he later found out that Ye Zhiting had a disciple, he felt that it wasnt bad for Situ Xingchen to win against the other partys disciple.
However, he didnt expect Ye Zhitings disciple to be Chu Liuyue, who had taken first place for both the warrior competition and the Xuan Master competition!
The most regretful thing was that, in reality, even Situ Xingchens first place in heavenly doctor was won by Chu Liuyue!
In the end, he absolutely rued the fact that he had agreed to Chu Liuyue representing Situ Xingchen in the competition.
Originally, he was holding in a stomach full of anger, but he didnt expect to coincidentally meet with Jiuyou Towers strange changes just as he was about to leave the Imperial City.
And even Ye Zhiting appeared! The most crucial point was that Ye Zhitings cultivation was much stronger than before!
Cheng Han could confirm that, if the two of them battled now, he still wouldnt be Ye Zhitings match.
“Jiuyou Tower is in big trouble now.
I dont think they can solve it so easily,” said Cheng Han with a dark face.
Fu Yunshan was very hesitant.
On the one hand, he didnt wish to get involved in this dangerous scenario.
Who knows what kind of existence lived under Jiuyou Tower
On the other hand, he didnt want to offend Ye Zhiting because of this.
While Fu Yunshan was being conflicted, Ye Zhiting had already walked to the broken star slowly.
Ye Zhiting waved the thin fan in his hands.
Many stars then fell, drawing out a brilliant line across the sky before falling on top of the silver pestle in the middle of the Locking Heaven Formation.
The originally shaken silver pestle rapidly started spinning on its own again, exuding immense strength in all directions.
The gigantic Locking Heaven Formation looked lively again.
That black apparition seemed to feel threatened as it stopped and glared at Ye Zhiting with alertness.
It knew very clearly what kind of threat Ye Zhitings appearance brought to it.
The two of them stared straight at each other.
Ye Zhiting looked at it with his old and murky eyes, which were as clear as ever and were filled with suppression.
“Evil beast! Dont you dare!”
His voice landed like thunder.
The lights on top of the Locking Heaven Formation intersected with each other.
Struggle flashed across the black apparitions bloodied eyes.
As Tian Lu Academys director and the silver pestles true owner, Ye Zhitings appearance naturally made the Locking Heaven Formation much stronger than before.
“Lets go!” Ye Zhiting whipped out his fan again.
The gigantic Locking Heaven Formation started rippling like the waves at sea.
The black apparition let out a painful moan, and its entire body was instantly separated as the apparition turned into numerous black sparks, which landed everywhere!
Even the black karmic fire burning below seemed to be affected as it shrunk by quite a bit, and it didnt continue going up.
When Sun Zhongyan and the others saw this, their anxious hearts finally calmed down.
“Uncle-Master, youve finally come out!” said Sun Zhongyan emotionally. If he came any later, Im afraid the entire Locking Heaven Formation really wouldve been broken by that beast!
Ye Zhiting laughed out loud.
“If I still didnt come out, the entire academy would be destroyed by this beast!”
Sun Zhongyan lowered his head apologetically.
“Its all because Im useless…”
“You cant be blamed for this.
The beast wanted to come out a long time ago, but it hadnt found a suitable chance all this while.
I was also on the verge of breaking through, so I didnt pay much attention to it.
It was my carelessness that led to what happened today.”
Ye Zhiting shook his head, and he had no intentions of reproaching Sun Zhongyan and the others.
“Then… Uncle-Master, what do you think we should do” Sun Zhongyan hesitantly asked. That beast clearly hasnt been taken down completely.
“Uncle-Master, Jiuyou Tower is already cracking.
Im afraid it cant restrain the beast anymore.”
This was the even greater problem!
Ye Zhiting glanced at Jiuyou Tower and really saw a clear crack on the towers body.
His face immediately became serious. In that case, things are much more serious than I thought…
His gaze landed on the Locking Heaven Formation again as he thought of ways to solve the problem.
Suddenly, he focused his gaze.
“Theres still someone in Jiuyou Tower!”
Sun Zhongyans heartbeat quickened as he wiped away the sweat on his forehead.
“Who is that on the fourth floor”
“…Seventh Prince, Prince Li.” Sun Zhongyan immediately answered as he didnt dare to hide the truth.
Ye Zhiting knitted his brows tightly.
“Why is he inside”
Without waiting for Sun Zhongyan to reply, Ye Zhiting discovered an even more shocking thing.
“Theres still someone else above the first five floors”
Sun Zhongyan didnt care about much at this moment and hurriedly nodded.
“Yes, Liuyue is still upstairs! Can you see what floor shes on”
Uncle-Master was stronger than him, so he could see what was going on at the higher floors.
Upon hearing the familiar name, Ye Zhitings eyelids twitched.
“Who did you say”
Sun Zhongyan swallowed his saliva and lowered his voice.
I only have this one precious disciple, yet this happened! How dangerous is Jiuyou Tower now Isnt she courting death by going in Ye Zhitings eyes turned black.
“H-how did she go up”
Sun Zhongyan was on the brink of tears. I want to know too!
Ye Zhiting was very anxious.
He hurriedly gathered his focus as he stared at the Locking Heaven Formation, wanting to find out about Chu Liuyues current situation.
This look made his face terrible.
“I can only feel that shes on the higher floors, but I cant precisely feel which exact floor she is on.
Right now, I only know that shes not on the sixth floor.”
This means that shes on the seventh floor at least! How can she go into such a purgatory
