The Pinnacle of Life Chapter 1541
Everyone was stunned. The joy of seeing the day again earlier was frozen all of a sudden, as if it were a jammed cartridge.
They saw the old man, who looked in his seventies or eighties, was dressed in a floral brocade clothing. Four younger men, who looked like bodyguards, stood behind him.
On the other hand, Azure and the others were quite tragic. A dozen people were kneeling on the ground while being tied to poles behind them that were stuck on the ground.
This was the hole where Susan and the others first escaped from. At that time, she put down the Broken Dragon Stone so that nobody could get in nor get out.
However, when Alex got the key and gained control of the tomb, the entire tomb’s mechanism was restarted and the position of the Broken Dragon Stone was reset as well.
“Who are you?” the frowned Alex asked in a cold tone.
“You don’t have to know who I am. You just have to give me the key to this tomb, and your subordinates will be safe and sound.” said the elderly with a smile. He even took a sip of tea after finished speaking.
Alex carefully looked at him three times and confirmed it three times as well.
This old man had spiritual energy on him. He was a cultivator but his strength was sparse and ordinary. He was only at the Spirit Transcendence stage.
How dare the old man come here and blackmail him with such strength?
“First, I don’t know what you want, and we haven’t seen it before.”
“Secondly, do you know the consequences of doing this? Tell me your background. Let’s see where your bravery comes from, okay?”
The old man fiercely slammed the tea cup in his hand. All the tea in the cup was shaken out. As he waved his hand, the tea was caught by him with some kind of cold power in the void. In the blink of an eye, the tea condensed into a one meter long ice sword.
He held the ice sword to Azure’s neck.
With a disdainful look, he said, “Look at my bravery, is it enough?”
Right after he said that, Maya suddenly waved her hand. With a swoosh, the ice sword in the old man’s hand turned into tea again.
In the next moment, all of it fell into Maya’s hand.
As she kept moving her finger, the water turned into a sword for a while and turned into a dagger for a while. In the end, it turned into a pile of faeces like shape and was directly thrown into the old man’s face by Maya. “This bit of bravery is not enough.”
The crowd went absolutely silent. The old man widened his eyes and had a shocked expression, as if he had seen a ghost.
“Impossible! How is this possible?”
“If you don’t tell me your origin and your patron, you’ll be dead!” said Alex expressionlessly. He just got out of the tomb and he was anxious to rush back to Alaska to use the Soul Substitute Lotus Seed on his mother, Brittany. Hence, he had no time to waste on someone like him.
As a whim struck the old man, he came back to his senses. Then, he abruptly reached out to grab Azure.
‘Ugh!’ Alex sighed in his mind.
In the next moment, the old man’s head fell off after a flash of blade. Since the old man was unwilling to say it, then he would not have to say it forever.
The remaining four bodyguards shivered when they saw that scene.
Alex was too strong and too quick.
If they were to know that they were called by the old man to face such an existence, they would not have come here no matter what.
Alex shook the Breaking Point Sword in his hand. The Breaking Point Sword from the Dragon Bane of Thirty-Six symbolized bravery and pressing forward with an indomitable will. Once the sword appeared, blood would be definitely seen, with an awe-inspiring dominance.
He held the sword and glanced at the four bodyguards.
In the next second, the four bodyguards could not handle the psychological pressure anymore and kneeled down with a thud. Not to mention them, the old man was much stronger than them, yet he was beheaded on the spot in such a short time.
Soon after, the ropes tying around Azure and the others were cut off, regaining their freedom.
