CSG - Chapter 3020: Close Interrogation
“W- w- why is it like this?” The Frigid River Ancestor was sheet-white. As she spoke, even her lips trembled slightly. It was a mystery whether she had become like this out of fright from seeing Shui Yunaln’s current state or because of the injuries to her soul from the Heaven-severing technique.
As for the Profound Sky Ancestor, he had become speechless out of shock too.
As Grand Primes of the Ice Pole Plane and ancestors of a colossal organisation like the Snow sect, there was obviously a tremendous amount of information in their grasp and secrets in their knowledge, which included Shui Yunlan’s existence.
The Ice Goddess Hall’s Snow Goddess had undergone rebirth, so the great Ice Goddess had specially sent Shui Yunlan to protect and escort the Snow Goddess back here. This was a secret that had stopped being a secret in the eyes of all peak experts of the Ice Pole Plane a long time ago.
They even knew that if they found Shui Yunlan, it was equivalent to finding the whereabouts of the Snow Goddess.
As the Snow Goddess’s guide and protector, Shui Yunlan was the only person who knew the Snow Goddess’s whereabouts.
If someone tried to target Shui Yunlan at a time like this, their intentions were obviously as clear as day.
But at a time like this, they had actually discovered Shui Yunaln within the Snow sect, and she had even been fed a pill like the Soul Devouring pill, which immediately left the ancestors of the Snow sect and the many great elders behind them quite frightened. Some of them even became covered in cold sweat.
At this moment, Shui Yunlan seemed to show signs of awakening. Her eyelashes trembled gently as a painful expression of struggle appeared on her face. She babbled, “D- d- don’t… even… even think about learning her majesty’s whereabouts from me. Even if I die… even if I suffer all the torment in the world, I won’t tell you her majesty’s whereabouts.”
Shui Yunlan had not woken up completely. She was in a state of blurred consciousness, and her voice was almost inaudible. It was soft and slurred.
However, just who were the people gathered here? They were either Grand Primes or Chaotic Primes, so they all clearly made out what Shui Yunlan had said.
With that, everyone’s already extremely ugly expressions became even uglier. They could not help but look at the people around them. Their eyes were filled with suspicion.
They were not fools. They immediately realised Wu Han could hide in the Snow sect because someone had planned this secretly, and they possessed quite the authority.
As the greatest organisation on the Ice Pole Plane, the Snow sect was not that easy to infiltrate.
“Wu Han!” The Icecloud Founding Ancestor’s face had darkened as she uttered Wu Han’s name through gritted teeth. The fury and hatred in her eyes were completely undisguised.
In the next moment, the Icecloud Founding Ancestor took out the Soul Stunning Bell and targeted it at Wu Han without the slightest hesitation. She did not plan on wasting any time to interrogate her. Instead, she directly tried to use the Soul Stunning Bell to control Wu Han so that she could obtain what she wanted to know by force.
As soon as she saw the Soul Stunning Bell, Wu Han’s face changed. She retreated subconsciously as she shouted in an attempt to hide her guilt, “Icecloud Founding Ancestor, s- senior Flame Reverend stands behind me. Y- you can’t do this to me, or the Flame Reverend will never spare your Snow sect. You might be the greatest organization on the Snow sect, but before the Flame Reverend, you’re so feeble that you’re no different from rice paper.”
The Icecloud Founding Ancestor snorted coldly and said frigidly, “In the recent past, our Snow sect did indeed dread the Flame Reverend, as the Ice Goddess Hall did not have the Ice and Snow Goddesses. In order to ensure our survival, we were even too afraid to openly destroy the Flame Reverend’s arrangements, which was why all we could do was watch helplessly as the Flame Reverend committed all sorts of atrocities on the Ice Pole Plane.”
“But it’s different now. Since Shui Yunlan has appeared, that means her majesty the Snow Goddess is about to return. With the Snow Goddess watching over the Ice Pole Plane, why would we have to fear the Flame Reverend like in the past?”
“The gloomy cloud over our Ice Pole Plane that is the Flame Reverend is about to pass.” The Icecloud Founding Ancestor stressed every single word as she spoke. As soon as she finished talking, she gave Wu Han no opportunity to resist. The Soul Stunning Bell in her hand immediately appeared above Wu Han’s head. The bell shook gently and emitted a soul-stunning sound.
With the Icecloud Founding Ancestor personally controlling the Soul Stunning Bell, its effects were obviously extraordinary. She controlled Wu Han instantly. Wu Han’s eyes became hollow at first before blanking out. She sank into a complete daze.
“Ancestor Lan, since you are a grandmaster alchemist, you must have a way to remove the effects of the Soul Devouring pill from Shui Yunlan. I’ll leave Shui Yunlan to you for now. Once I get to the bottom of this, I will give you an explanation,” said the Icecloud Founding Ancestor. She performed her tasks with great vigour. She used a gentle force to deliver Shui Yunlan to ancestor Lan without any hesitation
At the same time, an illusionary kingdom of snow appeared. This was the Supreme Kingdom of Snow cast by the Icecloud Founding Ancestor, which instantly enveloped everyone present.
In that moment, the Rain Abbess, Hun Zang, ancestor Lan, and He Qianchi all entered the illusionary kingdom of snow. Apart from them, there were also all the great elders of the Snow sect, as well as the three ancestors.
The Rain Abbess was unfazed. She had already destroyed the Supreme Kingdom of Snow once, so it obviously posed no threat to her. However, the expressions of ancestor Lan and the ancestors and great elders of the Snow sect all changed.
Among them, the Icepeer Founding Ancestor’s response was the most intense. Her face became extremely sunken as she shouted coldly towards the Icecloud Founding Ancestor, “Icecloud, what are you doing?”
“I will closely interrogate everyone about the matter between Wu Han and Shui Yunlan. As long as they are a disciple of the Snow sect, no matter who they are or how special their identity is, traitors of the Snow sect and the Ice Goddess Hall will not be let off lightly. As a result, before I get to the bottom of this, none of the disciples of the Snow sect can leave. As for ancestor Lan, you have nothing to worry about. With the Rain Abbess here, my Supreme Kingdom of Snow is useless against you,” the Icecloud Founding Ancestor’s voice rang out.
In the next moment, the Soul Stunning Bell shook and produced a clear jingle. The Icecloud Founding Ancestor stared straight at Wu Han and asked coldly, “Wu Han, who exactly captured Shui Yunlan?”
“Elder Xie,” Wu Han said numbly with a blank expression.
With that, the Icecloud Founding Ancestor’s gaze began frigid, while the Icepeer Founding Ancestor’s expression darkened. As for the Frigid River Ancestor and the Profound Sky Ancestor, they both widened their eyes in disbelief.
“How’s that possible? How can it be elder Xie?” The great elders who had also been imprisoned in the Supreme Kingdom of Snow fell into an uproar behind the four ancestors. They were all alarmed.
“I never expected it to actually be elder Xie, but now that elder Xie is already dead, he’s got what he deserves. Icecloud, in my opinion, we should just let the matter be now.” The Icepeer Founding Ancestor communicated with the Icecloud Founding Ancestor. Apart from the Icecloud Founding Ancestor, no one heard what she said.
“It’s definitely impossible for Yu Yangxie to erase his traces so cleanly given his abilities. Tell me. Who’s the person behind Yu Yangxie?” However, the Icecloud Founding Ancestor turned a deaf ear to that. She continued asking emotionlessly as she surged with killing intent.
She was not a fool either. Having reached this point, the truth was already becoming clearer and clearer, but she had no intentions of stopping where it was appropriate. Instead, she continued to ask away as if she would never stop until she got to the bottom of all the schemes and figures related to this matter.
