Chapter 1074 What Happened Back then

“Meow? Ghost! Zombie… A corpse is alive. Help!” Evil Moon jumped up on the spot and bowed to retreat.

Ding Hao was also shocked.

However, he felt that this person’s voice sounded quite familiar.

After looking at the man carefully, Ding Hao suddenly laughed and said, “Oh my god, how could it be you? How did you end up like this, profiteer? And you were put alive in a coffin?”

The one who sat up from the coffin was no one other than Muhuang Tianshu, the profiteer.

Uncle Tianshu was half sitting in the coffin, gasping for breath. He could not wait to say, “Cut the crap. Hurry up. Do you have any wine on you? Give me some. I almost died of thirst. By the way, do you have extra clothes? Damn, my old bones were almost burned to charcoal…”

Ding Hao threw a bottle of wine over and then gave him a set of clothes.

The old man took a sip happily and instinctively felt comfortable all over. Then, he stood up straight and began to put on clothes naked.

“AH! Meow, I just saw ugly stuff. Damn it. Geezer, can’t you pay more attention to your personal image? Don’t blind me with the little birdy in your crotch.” Evil Moon roared while covering its eyes with its two claws.

“Pfft, little kitten, don’t make such a fuss. I’m being casual.” Uncle Tianshu had put on the clothes and jumped out of the coffin barefoot. He cursed, “I just got myself schemed. I’ve always been the one to plot against others. I didn’t expect to be deceived by Muhuang Tianling this time. I was almost killed. I swear that I’ll pluck out his tendons after I get out of here.”

“Muhuang Tianling is dead.” Ding Hao shook his head.

“Dead?” Uncle Tianshu was stunned and then realized something. “What happened? Holy crap. Did you start a massacre on Heaven Island?”

Ding Hao did not know how to react and told him what happened.

“What? So… so that’s how it is.” Tianshu was stunned for a moment before shaking his head with a wry smile. “It’s all predestined. He reaped what he has sown. That’s what he deserved. It’s not surprising for him to die at Yu Miejue’s hand.”

Hearing his words, Ding Hao realized that Tianshu obviously knew what happened back then, so he asked, “By the way, what happened back then? Senior Muhuang Tianji brought Ke’er to the Southern Wilderness. Why did Ke’er later betray the Heaven Sect and establish a great force, the Extermination Peak, on her own?”

Tianshu gulped down large mouthfuls of wine and sat down on the crimson sarcophagus. He picked his feet while saying, “Well, you are Yu Miejue’s brother. You will know about this sooner or later… It’s a long story. For nearly 10,000 years, Heaven Island has stunned the Southern Land. The Four Great Families formed the Heaven Sect. Originally, their strengths were about the same. But in the past 100 years, three peerless geniuses of our Muhuang family have finally entered the God Realm, so we had three God Realm Masters. Our strength has gradually surpassed the other three Great Families.”

“You’re just bragging, old man. Peerless geniuses? Aren’t they just you, Muhuang Tianji, and Muhuang Tianling?” Evil Moon curled its lips in disdain and said, “All of you are just so-so.”

“You… forget it, I won’t quibble with a fat cat like you.” Uncle Tianshu said, looking furious. He looked at Ding Hao before he continued, “Among the three of us, my eldest brother Muhuang Tianji is the most powerful, the most knowledgeable, and the most talented. In the previous competitions of my Muhuang family, my eldest brother had defeated the others, and he was the undisputed number one genius. I was ranked third, and Muhuang Tianling was ranked fourth. My second brother died young. His talent was outstanding, and he was proud and ambitious, but I like to wander around. I don’t have the mood for power, and I’m used to being carefree…”

“Meow. You’re used to being idle, aren’t you?” Evil Moon mocked, still holding a grudge about being struck by black thunderbolts just now.

“Little fat cat, I’ll fight you to the death…” Uncle Tianshu was so angry that he stamped his feet. Ding Hao quickly stopped him. He then turned around and gave the Demon King a flick on the forehead before he said with a smile, “Please go on.”

Uncle Tianshu smiled proudly at Evil Moon and continued, “Later, the new generation replaced the old generation of the Muhuang family. As expected, it was my eldest brother, Muhuang Tianji, who became the new head of the family. My fourth brother, Tianling, became the Law Enforcement Elder and also held great power. I was lazy by nature, so I only served as a Sincure Elder…”

“I think it’s because you had no desire to make progress and your strength is too weak. That’s why you had no chance to fight for greater power,” Evil Moon muttered.

Uncle Tianshu ignored it. He seemed to be reminiscing about the past. After a pause, he said, “Later, something strange happened on the continent that alarmed all parties. As the head of my Muhuang family, my eldest brother left the Southern Wilderness for a period to attend an important event in the Northern Region. One year later, he returned with a baby girl…”

“It must be Ke’er, right?” Ding Hao said anxiously.

Uncle Tianshu nodded and said, “Yes, it was her, currently known as Yu Miejue. At that time, my elder brother overrode all objections and accepted this unknown girl as his personal disciple. He taught her the unique skills of my Muhuang family. At that time, this matter caused great controversy in our family. Many elders led by my fourth brother opposed treating this outsider with no blood of the Muhuang family in her as family. However, my elder brother used his identity as the head of the family to suppress everyone’s opposition. That was the first time he acted arbitrarily, and it was also the only time.”

Ding Hao did not frown tightly. He thought for a moment and said, “What kind of big event was it that made the head of the Muhuang family go to the Northern Region in person?”

“It is rumored to have something to do with the arrival of the Divine Clan. At that time, some forces of the Five Human Supremes of the Human Clan in the Land of Infinity, the Five Divine Palaces, and the Demon Clan had received definite news that the Divine Clan from the Immortal Period had appeared in the Northern Region. It was very likely that there was a great opportunity, which contained the mystery of becoming an immortal,” Uncle Tianshu said without reservation.

“So, the Muhuang family head happened to pass by Swordsmanship-seeking Sect and discovered my sister. He thought she was quite talented, so he accepted her as his disciple?” Ding Hao still felt that something was wrong.

The Muhuang family wasn’t an ordinary sect. They only trained the disciples from the family. Even if Ke’er’s natural talent was extraordinary, it shouldn’t be to the point that someone of Muhuang Tianji’s status would be tempted and insist on taking her as a personal disciple. There was probably some other secret behind this.

“I don’t know about that.” Uncle Tianshu said with a wry smile, “My eldest brother always does things with a far-reaching purpose. I can’t understand him. Although I don’t understand why he did those things, he must have done them for some special meaning.”

Ding Hao nodded thoughtfully and asked, “Then why did you show up in Swordsmanship-seeking Sect later?”

Uncle Tianshu said, “Of course, it was because of Ke’er. After getting to know this little girl, I thought she was quite interesting. From her, I learned that she has an elder brother far away in the Northern Region. She was very worried about you, so she asked me to go to the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect to help you…”

“So that’s why you came to the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect in the Northern Region? And you pretended to be a profiteer to approach me?” Ding Hao asked.

“Well… ahem, of course, that’s not the only reason.” Uncle Tianshu saw that Ding Hao didn’t believe him, so he said frankly, “My elder brother has mentioned to me several times that back then, he only brought a girl and didn’t bring a boy back. He felt sorry for you and your sister. I heard from his words that he wanted to help you, so I went to the Northern Region.”

That made sense.

Ding Hao nodded.

However, there was no way to figure out what Muhuang Tianji was thinking and why he brought Ding Ke’er back to the Southern Land at that time because he was now already dead.

“Then why did my sister betray the Heaven Sect?” Ding Hao asked, “According to what you just said, my sister should have a very high position in the Muhuang family. After all, she was the personal disciple of the head of the family.”

Tianshu nodded with a wry smile and said, “You’re right. Her status was indeed very high, and what’s more, her martial arts talent and cultivation speed were even higher. In less than three years, the most outstanding disciples of the Four Great Families were no match for her. Because of her identity as an outsider, everyone in the Four Great Families ostracized her, except for my elder brother. Fights are common in private. Ke’er’s character was very kind and weak at first, and she was tolerant. But in the martial arts world, the more tolerant one is, the easier it would be for others to bully him. Over the years of getting bullied and humiliated, she finally began to change and retaliate. So almost all the outstanding disciples of the Four Great Families were beaten by her…”

Ding Hao gritted his teeth. He could imagine what his sister had suffered in the past.

Those days must have been very tough for her.

“Because I went to the Northern Region, I didn’t know much about what happened later. After I arrived there, I soon found you. At first, I didn’t show myself but secretly observed you for a while. I could see that your aptitude and comprehension at that time were very bad. Your martial arts talent was far worse than your sister’s. I was trying to find a way to help you. During that time, I left the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect for a period, trying to find some divine medicine to help change your physique. It could be regarded as compensation from my Muhuang family. But when I came back, I was surprised to find that you had completely changed. You had changed from a stupid boy to a peerless genius that even I couldn’t see through…

Speaking of this, Muhuang Tianshu looked at Ding Hao with a strange look.

Until now, he still couldn’t understand what happened to Ding Hao and why there was such a big change.

Ding Hao smiled and said, “I don’t know what was going on with me either. That day, I suddenly seemed to have awakened my memory. I remembered a lot of things and changed completely. It was as if I was sealed by someone before.”

“That’s a reasonable explanation. In the legendary Immortal Period, there was magic called Bloodline Seed Immortal that could seal a person’s aptitude and memory.” Uncle Tianshu nodded and said, “I’ve always suspected that the background of you and your sister is not simple… Back then, after I discovered your transformation, I changed my mind to help you directly. I’ve been observing you secretly, trying to see to what extent you can reach. I guess I’ve been secretly protecting you… but I witnessed a miracle.”

Ding Hao did not speak.

Tianshu continued, “When I returned to the Southern Wilderness, I heard about Ke’er. Rumor has it that she murdered her master, betrayed Heaven Island, and escaped. I was extremely shocked back then. I didn’t believe it was true, because Ke’er treated my brother as her real father. It was absolutely impossible for her to do such a thing… My first reaction was to go to Extermination Peak to find her, who had changed her name to Yu Miejue.”

“Did you go to the Extermination Peak later?” Ding Hao asked.

Uncle Tianshu nodded and said, “The Extermination Peak is a forbidden place in the Southern Wilderness. Even a master at the God Realm will be in danger of dying if he enters there, so the Four Great Families couldn’t do anything to Ke’er. I don’t know how she gained a foothold there. I came to Extermination Peak with a lot of doubts and mysteries and asked to meet her by name. Unexpectedly, I learned an amazing truth from her!”
