Yao Lie ranked second in the Demon God's Sect. He usually sealed himself to cultivate, seldom appearing at all.
Although there were the occasional strifes between the Demon God's Sect and Heavenly Note Sect, it was very rare for them to clash with experts at the Martial Ancestor Realm or higher.
Although the Demon God's Sect was much stronger than the Heavenly Note Sect, it still proved extremely difficult for the Demon God's Sect to destroy the Heavenly Note Sect. It would only result in losses from both sides. Besides, if the Heavenly Note Sect was attacked, the other five sects would definitely not sit idle.
The three great Demonic sects and the six Divine sects had always lived in such a peaceful coexistence.
Nangong Xianyin felt extremely uneasy that the Demon God's Sect was suddenly attacking today with such belligerence.
Although the Heavenly Note Sect's strength had been greatly uplifted due to Nie Li's Sacred Elixirs recently, they were still too weak against the Demon God's Sect.
Yao Lie took on the form of a demonic aura that filled the sky. He struck down at the Heavenly Note Massive Array with his palm!
Nangong Xianyin responded with an angry shout. Heavenly notes manifested as formless energy in the Heavenly Note Massive Array to resist the boundless demonic aura.
The Heavenly Note Massive Array trembled slightly but it could still hold its own. Unfortunately, the ordinary disciples of the Heavenly suffered as a result. The corrosive demonic aura encroached on them as they plummeted from the sky while letting out tragic cries.
"Sect Master, we will not be able to hold out much longer with our strength!"
"How did this demon, Yao Lie, become so strong!?"
A few Martial Ancestor Realm experts revealed painful expressions. The impenetrable demonic aura seemed to corrode everything, slowly melting away their strength.
"Sect Master, it's unknown if Yao Lie came alone. If that demoness, Luo Xinyan, comes…"
"Sect Master, it appears as though we need to activate the Massive Sect Fortification Array," said another Martial Ancestor Realm expert anxiously.
Nangong Xianyin frowned slightly as she considered for a moment before shouting coldly, "Activate the Massive Sect Fortification Array!"
Beams like iridescent crimson clouds rapidly arose, enveloping the entire Heavenly Note Sect.
Bam! Bam! Bam!
The demonic aura struck the iridescent crimson clouds incessantly. Energy ripples spread out as the demonic aura dispersed.
However, Yao Lie did not continue his assault. He slowly hid among the black clouds, silently overlooking the Heavenly Note Sect.
Nangong Xianyin and company descended to the ground. The Martial Ancestor Realm experts appeared to be in somewhat miserable states. Yao Lie's demonic aura was just too powerful. It was something they could hardly manage.
"This Massive Sect Fortification Array should be able to last a few days. Let's hope that the other five Divine Sects would receive the news and send reinforcements to aid us." A Martial Ancestor Realm experts said somewhat dishearteningly.
The clash with Yao Lie was quite demoralizing.
The Demon God's Sect's sect master, Luo Xinyan, had not arrived. Just a mere Yao Lie proved a challenge for them. What would happen if that demoness,
"It seems the Demon God's Sect doesn't intend to attack our Massive Sect Fortification Array!" One of the Martial Ancestor Realm experts looked up and said uncertainly.
"What are they up to?"
If the Demon God's Sect had attacked the Massive Sect Fortification Array with full force, their array could at most last a week. It could easily last about half a year if the Demon God's Sect did not attack the array.
"What exactly are they up to?" Nangong Xianyin knitted her brows. She had a nagging feeling that the situation was not that simple.
"Sect Master, are they planning on trapping us?" asked a Martial Ancestor Realm expert uncertainly.
They could not shrug off the sense of unease that lingered in their hearts.
"Regardless, we have to inform the other Divine Sects as soon as possible. Just our Heavenly Note Sect alone is definitely no match for the Demon God's Sect," said Nangong Xianyin with a heavy tone.
Among the nine Demonic and Divine Sects, the Demon God's Sect was one of the strongest sects. As for the Heavenly Note Sect, it was only average in the rankings. The difference in strength was not trivial.
Furthermore, Yao Lie's strength had improved tremendously. It far exceeded their imaginations. If not for having their strength increased because of Nie Li's Sacred Elixirs, they would have long been wiped out.
What exactly was going on?
How did Yao Lie's strength increase so rapidly!?
Furthermore, the demonic aura from before was filled with a horrifying
Meanwhile, Nie Li suddenly opened his eyes in the Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting. He had finally completed merging with the Thunder God's Meteorite Sword. After merging with it, his body was indestructible if the sword remained undestroyed. Besides, the Thunder God's Meteorite Sword's robustness was beyond imagination.
Although Nie Li's strength was not at the Martial Ancestor Realm expert, nor was he the match of Martial Ancestor Realm experts, his body was capable of withstanding any attacks from a Martial Ancestor Realm expert.
This was because Nie Li's body was as robust as the Thunder God's Meteorite Sword's blade!
Xiao Ning'er and Ye Ziyun immediately walked over when they saw Nie Li awaken.
"Nie Li, are you alright?" Xiao Ning'er looked at Nie Li with concern.
Ye Ziyun's eyes landed on Nie Li's body as she narrowed her eyes with a smile.
"Is there something odd about my body?" Nie Li looked down.
"While you were cultivating, Ning'er's eyes did not leave you for a single moment," said Ye Ziyun with a smile.
Xiao Ning'er's face blushed red the instant she heard Ye Ziyun.
Nie Li looked at Ye Ziyun and asked with a smile, "Naturally, Ning'er did so because she was concerned about me. What about you?"
"I can't be bothered caring about you!" Ye Ziyun snorted a reply.
Nie Li smiled. He naturally knew Ziyun's character. She would absolutely not admit to it.
"Let's leave quickly," said Nie Li with a faint smile. "We have to return to the Divine Feathers Sect."
"Alright." Ye Ziyun nodded. She was already prepared to leave the Heavenly Note Sect with Nie Li.
The trio walked out of the Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting before Nie Li stored it away.
Bu the moment Nie Li and company exited, they instantly noticed something amiss. There were signs of a battle everywhere. Nie Li looked up and saw an iridescent screen of light in the sky. It completely encompassed the Heavenly Note Sect.
"The Heavenly Note Sect has been attacked!" Nie Li's heart clamped up. The only entity that would attack the Heavenly Note Sect in the present situation was probably the Demon God's Sect.
"Nie Li, what happened here?" Ye Ziyun asked perplexed.
"Nie Li, I just received Master's voice transmission! Our Heavenly Note Sect has been attacked by the Demon God's Sect. However, the Massive Sect Fortification Array has been activated and we are temporarily alright. Master requests for me and Ziyun to rush there as soon as possible!" Xiao Ning'er looked up and said to Nie Li.
Nie Li fell silent for a moment and said, "Meet up with them first. I'll investigate the situation and meet up with you later!"
"Alright then. Be careful!" Ye Ziyun said with a nod after thinking for a moment.
"Nie Li, you have to be careful!" said Xiao Ning'er as she looked at Nie Li.
"Don't worry. Even if it's the Demon God's Sect, none of them can do anything to me!" Nie Li laughed out as he said confidently.
