I Have the Alchemy Emperor in My Head - Chapter 1312
1312 The Great Formless Sect’s Death Struggle
Everyone knew that if they were to fool Chu Yunfan, it would be fine if they were not exposed, but if Chu Yunfan saw through them, even if one of them didn’t come to accept their death, the Great Formless Sect would be uprooted.
No one would want to test whether what Chu Yunfan said was true or false.
Even if he wanted to save his face, he had to ensure that he would keep his word. He could not let the Great Formless Sect fool him like this.
Everyone was looking at the Great Formless Sect’s response.
Although Mi Siyuan was already dead, there were definitely many higher-ups of the Great Formless Sect who participated in the plan to target the Chu clan. This wave would definitely cause the Great Formless Sect to suffer a great loss.
And at this time, inside the Great Formless Sect, it was like a storm was brewing. To most of the Great Formless Sect disciples, this matter had nothing to do with them because they had not participated in it.
However, some were completely scared out of their wits. They had participated in the matter against the Chu clan. Many of them had even personally killed the members of the Chu clan.
Now that Mi Siyuan was defeated, it was their turn to bear the consequences.
In a secret meeting room of the Great Formless Sect, many high-ranking members of the sect had gathered to discuss Mi Siyuan’s defeat and Chu Yunfan’s request for them to receive their death within three days.
The atmosphere in the conference room was extremely oppressive. Everyone was silent and their faces were ashen. Many people’s faces were flashing with fear. When they thought of the scene where Chu Yunfan killed Mi Siyuan, that terrifying figure that was like a god made many people shudder.
“Tell us. What should we do about Chu Yunfan’s request?”
At this moment, a black-robed old man slowly spoke. This person was none other than the Great Formless Sect’s great elder.
Usually, his status in the Great Formless Sect was second only to Mi Siyuan. Now that Mi Siyuan had been killed by Chu Yunfan, the Great Formless Sect naturally took him as the leader.
“What else can we do? His request is too much!” one of the higher-ups shouted.
If it could be said that to the ordinary Great Formless Sect disciples, most of them had nothing to do with this matter and could temporarily heave a sigh of relief, then to the higher-ups like them, most of them had something to do with this matter. This was the most terrifying.
Although the Chu clan could only be considered a second-rate force in the south of Great Wei, it was still a piece of fat meat after years of accumulation.
Back then, when Mi Siyuan gave the order, who knew how many factions within the Great Formless Sect would pounce over and bite off a piece of the meat?
As the saying went, everyone had their share of the profits. All the factions had more or less snatched some. The factions that had snatched some were very happy, but they had not expected that this would be their death.
Among these people, there were very few who dared to pat their chests and say that they had nothing to do with this matter.
Perhaps they didn’t react in time, or perhaps they were too weak. They didn’t show up in the previous wave. But now, this had become their life-saver.
Chu Yunfan wanted them dead. If he had killed them outrightly, it would have been fine, but now he wanted them to personally come and receive their death. This was the most terrifying thing.
“That’s right. He’s simply going too far. Let’s fight it out with him!” another higher-up roared, “Since we’re going to die anyway, we have to make him suffer!”
“How can we make him suffer? He’s a Core. Even the sect master has failed,” someone said.
Many people felt a little hopeless when they thought of the supreme might of a Core. They were a sect with a Core, so they knew how powerful these people were.
Even if all of them were to join forces, they wouldn’t be able to kill a Core. Not to mention that Chu Yunfan was a top expert among the Cores. Even the sect master was not his match, so how could they fight him?
“So according to what you said, you want us all to die? If we all die, won’t the Great Formless Sect be completely finished?” someone said sinisterly.
“Since you want us to die, then don’t think that everyone will have an easy time.”
The expression of the higher-ups of the Great Formless Sect who roared angrily became incomparably ferocious.
“We’re all dead, so what’s the point of the Great Formless Sect’s existence? Either we advance and retreat together, or we’ll be destroyed together!”
In the face of death, these experts of the Great Formless Sect had gone completely mad and furious.
There were even some people who were crazy enough to drag the Great Formless Sect down with them. However, most people were completely silent about this. If it was any other time, it would definitely attract countless attacks, but now, no one said anything.
To them, after they died, they would not care about the flood.
Either we lived together or we died together!
“At most, we can just hide in this sect. Our sect has been consolidated by two generations of sect masters for many years. Even Cores can’t do anything to us. I don’t believe that Chu Yunfan will break in directly.”
“That’s right. Who does he think he is? Even if the imperial court’s conquering army wants to take down our Great Formless Sect, they will have to pay a painful price. What can he do alone? Just based on the few crooked melons and rotten dates of the Chu clan?”
“That’s right. Let’s fight it out with him. They can wait. At most, we can just seal off the mountain and not come out. I don’t believe that he can live for another thousand years. At most, we can just wait for a generation to pass. When another Core appears among us, Chu Yunfan will be old by then.”
These higher-ups of the Great Formless Sect were all talking at once. In short, they wanted to hide and rely on the barrier of the Great Formless Sect to resist Chu Yunfan.
At most, they would endure for a few hundred years before leaving the mountain. It was just a generation’s time. Although they would feel aggrieved, it was better than being killed by Chu Yunfan.
“If it doesn’t work, then we can only do this. But before that, we can’t just give up. At most, we can report it to the Core Council and let them pressure us. I don’t believe that Chu Yunfan dares to go against all the Cores in the world!” the grand elder of the Great Formless Sect gritted his teeth and declared.
He did not want to die either. He was also involved in the matter against the Chu clan, but he did not want to die just like that.
Many people’s eyes lit up when they heard the great elder’s words. That’s right, they could rely on the Core Council. When they thought of the deterrence of the Core Council, they suddenly felt hopeful.
As long as the Core Council was willing to step forward, they still had hope.
If Chu Yunfan failed, the Chu clan could still rely on Great Wei’s imperial court. But after they failed, they had no one to rely on. The only hope they could rely on was the Core Council.
