CSG - Chapter 3018: Complicating the Truth

“What a Heavenly Crane clan. I never thought you’d actually be so vicious, wanting Yu Yangxie to cooperate with you in your scheme to slander our Snow sect and weave up a lie of our Snow sect betraying the Ice Goddess Hall. You want everyone to turn against our Snow sect. Heavenly Crane clan, you all deserve far more than death,” the Icepeer Founding Ancestor flew into a fury and said with righteous indignation as she pointed at ancestor Lan.

The Frigid River Ancestor and the Profound Sky Ancestor’s faces became extremely sunken too. The story did seem like it was riddled with holes if the Heavenly Crane clan wanted to slander the Snow sect through buying out Yu Yangxie, but in their eyes, the combined forces of the Heavenly Crane clan, the Martial Soul lineage, and the Rain Abbess completely surpassed the Snow sect.

In particular, the Rain Abbess had even managed to defeat the Icecloud Founding Ancestor.

When they possessed an absolute advantage in strength, the Heavenly Crane clan definitely had no need for material evidence if they were determined to target the Snow sect. They only required an excuse to launch an attack.

They required a reason that justified their actions and shut up the major organisations on the Ice Pole Plane.

Yu Yangxie obviously became the person for this job.

The Icecloud Founding Ancestor said nothing. She only stared coldly at ancestor Lan, but the depths of her eyes revealed that she was peering into the heavenly secrets.

With the Icecloud Founding Ancestor’s cultivation at the Sixth Heavenly Layer, her ability to peer into the heavenly secrets and learn about the past and future was obviously exceptional. She could find out about many secrets in the world through peering into the heavenly secrets.

Before absolute strength, all plans and schemes would end in naught. This was not just about overwhelming force and strength. It was also because experts of absolute strength could see through the thick mist woven from numerous schemes and plans by peering into the heavenly secrets, allowing them to see the truth.

But in the end, the Icecloud Founding Ancestor found nothing at all, as a pair of invisible hands had cleaned up all clues and traces related to this matter.

This discovery made the Icecloud Founding Ancestor become even colder. She obviously suspected ancestor Lan, as ancestor Lan was powerful enough to erase everything with ease.

Just like that, there were no experts who could find out about the hidden truth even when it came to Yu Yangxie’s betrayal.

“Yu Yangxie, even now, you’re still trying to bend the truth. My Martial Soul lineage happens to have a secret technique passed down through the generations known as the Soul Control technique. Are you bold enough to receive the Soul Control technique and then confess the truth before all the ancestors of your Snow sect?” Hun Zang said with a mocking smile.

“Hmph, how can I, a great elder of the Snow sect, just be placed under the control of your Martial Soul lineage so easily? And who knows if your Martial Soul lineage will pull some underhanded tricks in secret or not?” The Icepeer Founding Ancestor refuted immediately. She remained extremely protective of Yu Yangxie the entire time.

At this moment, the Icecloud Founding Ancestor who stood silently to the side took out a bell. The bell swayed gently and rang out clearly.

This was a high quality god artifact, the Soul Stunning Bell. Once unleashed, its sounds could control the minds of others. Once placed under the bell’s control, all thoughts and actions would be completely at the whim of the user.

Of course, the Soul Stunning Bell was not unstoppable. As long as a person’s cultivation was sufficiently powerful, they could resist the sounds of the bell and not be controlled.

The Icecloud Founding Ancestor wielded the Soul Stunning Bell and appeared before Yu Yangxie in a flash. Her eyes were filled with determination. She directed the Soul Stunning Bell towards Yu Yangxie without the slightest hesitation.

With the Icecloud Founding Ancestor’s cultivation at the Sixth Heavenly Layer of Grand Prime, Yu Yangxie obviously stood no chance against the Soul Stunning Bell as an Eighth Heavenly Layer Chaotic Prime.

However, right when the Icecloud Founding Ancestor was about to use the Soul Stunning Bell, Yu Yangxie’s eyes suddenly widened, and his entire body immediately turned rigid.

Soon afterwards, pitch-black blood flowed out of his orifices with a nauseating stench.

“H- h- how vicious of you, ancestor Lan!” Yu Yangxie stared straight at ancestor Lan as he pointed at her with his trembling hand, speaking with difficulty.

In particular, Yu Yangxie’s eyes were filled with undisguised hatred for ancestor Lan.

In the next moment, Yu Yangxie’s body fell out of the air stiffly. His soul had already dispersed. He was dead. Even upon dying, his eyes were still wide open, dying in regret.

The Icecloud Founding Ancestor’s gaze became freezing as she was about to use the Soul Stunning Bell on Yu Yangxie. She reached out, and Yu Yangxie’s corpse immediately floated back up, arriving before the four ancestors.

Gazing at Yu Yangxie’s corpse, the faces of the four ancestors all became extremely ugly.

Right before their eyes, Yu Yangxie’s body was being eaten away bit by bit, turning into pitch-black blood that gave off a foul stench.

The poison was so potent that even the Frigid River Ancestor and the Profound Sky Ancestor lurched inside.

Even upon death, Yu Yangxie was not left with a complete corpse.

“This is the Poison Pill of Buried Ways!” the Profound Sky Ancestor said with a trembling voice.

The Poison Pill of Buried Ways’ name came from its potency, where it could even bury the great ways.

This was an extremely powerful and forceful pill of poison. Even some weaker Grand Primes would suffer the miserable fate of death when they ingested this pill.

“Ancestor Lan, how vicious of you. You actually used a Poison Pill of Buried Ways to kill a great elder of our Snow sect.” The Icepeer Founding Ancestor’s eyes exploded with killing intent. She bellowed, “The Poison Pill of Buried Ways is a high grade God Tier pill. Across the Saints’ World, there are only a handful of grandmaster alchemists who can refine high grade God Tier pills, and on our Ice Pole Plane, you’re the only one who’s capable of refining something like this. Ancestor Lan, are you still going to deny it even after this?”

At this moment, the great elders of the Snow sect all rose up into the air. All of them were filled with righteous indignation, staring at them furiously and bellowing out, “Heavenly Crane clan, you’ll definitely pay with blood for this. A great elder of our Snow sect cannot die just like that.”

“Ancestors, we have to avenge elder Xie.”

“The Heavenly Crane clan probably joined the Flame Reverend a long time ago. They want to dominate our Ice Pole Plane.”

For a moment, Yu Yangxie’s death infuriated all of the great elders of the Snow sect. They were all extremely emotional.

Ancestor Lan’s face was very ugly. She hovered in the air and said nothing. Their attack on the Snow sect had really been followed by incidents upon incidents. Yu Yangxie had first bitten back against them. Now, Yu Yangxie had died from a Poison Pill of Buried Ways, directing all of the blame at her, which immediately made it impossible for her to explain herself.

If Yu Yangxie had merely bitten back at her, then so be it. After all, as long as Yu Yangxie was still alive, there were far too many different ways available to her to prove whether he was lying or not. But now, Yu Yangxie had died, and he had died to a high grade God Tier pill, the Poison Pill of Buried Ways, while she was the only grandmaster alchemist who could refine high grade God Tier pills on the Ice Pole Plane.

All of this essentially proved Yu Yangxie’s story of the Heavenly Crane clan buying him out. Yu Yangxie’s death had instead become the Heavenly Crane clan’s attempt to silence him and destroy evidence.
