CSG - Chapter 3053: Losing All Composure (One)
The Ice Pole Plane was just as peaceful and beautiful as before. Thick snow and tough ice covered every single inch of the plane. The snowflakes that drifted through the air seemed endless as if the snowing would never stop.
Ever since Jian Chen began to comprehend the Way of Alchemy, he had not taken another step off the Soaring Snow peak. During the years he remained in the Heavenly Crane clan, he only did a total of two things. He would listen to ancestor Lan explain the mysteries of the Way of Alchemy and increase his comprehension of the Way of Alchemy through refining pills.
However, Jian Chen, who was completely submerged in alchemy, was completely unaware that the news that he was still alive would almost be exposed. The Myriad Bone Guild had already discovered something fishy.
At this moment, a man in black robes appeared silently in the space beyond the Ice Pole Plane. He was like a ghost, hovering there silently. None of the peak experts on the Ice Pole Plane could sense his existence.
The man in black robes was the leader of the Myriad Bone Guild!
On top of that, it was his main body that had just returned from the chaotic space.
Whether Jian Chen had actually died to the Wind Venerable or not was far too significant to their Myriad Bone Guild. If the Wind Venerable actually killed Jian Chen, then the Wind Venerable would be dead for good. The Anatta Grand Exalt would never spare him.
However, if Jian Chen did not die at the Wind Venerable’s hand…
Even the guild leader dared not continue that thought. If Jian Chen really was still alive, then wouldn’t his actions of anticipating the Wind Venerable’s death eagerly over the past few years just make him into a laughing stock?
He refused to accept this outcome, but he had to get to the bottom of this.
“It is extremely likely for the He Qianchi back then to be Jian Chen in disguise, as even the Grand Primes of the Heavenly Crane clan can never meet with the reincarnation of the Snow Goddess at a time like this, let alone the measly figure that He Qianchi is. Given the Snow Goddess’s personality, it’s impossible for her to trust anyone on the Ice Pole Plane so easily.”
“And the Martial Soul lineage. They have nothing to do with the Ice Pole Plane, so why did they suddenly attack the Snow sect? The Martial Soul lineage’s actions truly are fishy.”
Various thoughts flashed through the guild leader’s head. As his analysis deepened, the ominous feeling within him grew stronger.
However, he did not directly set foot on the Ice Pole Plane. Instead, he carefully hid himself in a space extremely distant from the Ice Pole Plane, isolating himself from all laws and erasing all traces through his exceptional abilities. As such, he seemed to have left this world already.
Shortly afterwards, the guild leader used a secret technique. His pupils suddenly vanished, replaced with two swirls that span away like two black holes. They were extremely deep.
When he gazed at this region again, not only had his eyesight become terrifyingly impressive, but he could even clearly make out the laws hidden in this region.
Even on the Ice Pole Plane floating up ahead, all the secrets it was hiding were fully revealed in the guild leader’s eyes, apart from certain matters related to the Ice Goddess Hall and the Grand Exalts, as well as the special man and woman who had hidden themselves with exceptional secret techniques or exotic treasures.
Even the Snow sect that was known as the greatest organisation on the Ice Pole Plane was unable to hide any secrets from the guild leader. He could clearly see the Icecloud Founding Ancestor. As a matter of fact, he even clearly made out the miniature world where the Icecloud Founding Ancestor made a push for the Seventh Heavenly Layer.
However, the guild leader was completely uninterested in the Snow sect. He only had a single objective for coming here, which was to verify something.
“The Heavenly Crane clan, He Qianchi!” He directly turned his gaze towards the Heavenly Crane clan. He directly peered through the protective formation like it did not exist at all and found his target in a secret room of ice very soon—He Qianchi!
“A Fifth Heavenly Layer Chaotic Prime. This He Qianchi should be the true He Qianchi. The He Qianchi who appeared in the Snow sect and met with the Snow Goddess’s reincarnation according to the news should be someone else.”
“Of all the people he could have disguised himself as, he chose to disguise himself as He Qianchi, so he must be extremely familiar with He Qianchi. If I want to find out about the other He Qianchi, all I have to do is capture the real He Qianchi and search his soul.” Cold light flashed through the guild leader’s eyes, but just when he wanted to take action, he hesitated again. “I can’t be rash. Right now, it’s only a suspicion that Jian Chen is still alive. What if he’s actually dead? Wouldn’t I give myself away if I act so rashly?”
The guild leader immediately calmed down. Before he had confirmed Jian Chen’s death, both he and the Heartless Child had to ensure they remained completely uninvolved.
After all, the significance behind the matter was far too great. Even the slightest carelessness could make the Anatta Grand Exalt turn his wrath towards the Myriad Bone Guild.
“I’ll keep looking. I’ll look through the entire Heavenly Crane clan, the entire Ice Pole Plane. I’ll even look through the forty-nine planes and eighty-one planets if I need to for the sake of confirming Jian Chen’s fate.” The guild leader became determined. This had to do with the Myriad Bone Guild’s fate, as well as his and the Heartless Child’s future. It would be worth it no matter what lengths he would have to go to for something so important.
Shortly afterwards, the guild leader stood in outer space and spied on the Heavenly Crane clan from a great distance. He carried out a close search through the Heavenly Crane clan, seriously examining every clansman in there.
The Heavenly Crane clan had a great number of clansmen, but the guild leader was a Ninth Heavenly Layer Grand Prime after all. Through his secret technique, he could look at hundreds of thousand, millions, or even tens of million people with a single glance. He searched through them extremely quickly.
He started on the outside and gradually made his way into the depths of the Heavenly Crane clan. Very soon, he had searched through all of the regions and all of the clansmen apart from the three ancestral peaks within the forbidden grounds of the Heavenly Crane clan.
In the end, the guild leader ignored the formations around the forbidden grounds and looked towards the three ancestral peaks where the three ancestors cultivated in peace.
However, when he scanned past the Soaring Snow peak, his body suddenly shuddered violently. Even his heart contracted violently as if it had stopped beating.
In a daze, the flow of time seemed to come to a halt. Even space seemed to freeze. The guild leader stood beyond the Ice Pole Plane, staring straight at the Soaring Snow peak. Everything fell silent.
Shortly afterwards, his body began to tremble, increasing in amplitude and intensity until he basically seemed like he had gone insane in the end. His entire body convulsed in outer space as he let out choking sounds from his throat as if something was stuck. He wanted to say something, but he could not spit out a single word.
His eyes had become completely bloodshot. He saw red. He felt like they were about to bleed.
They were like a pair of eyes that belonged to a demon, sinister and frightening.
