It had to be mentioned that Jian Chen’s threats had indeed frightened the eight great elders of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals. Jian Chen was not weak. Coupled with the Immortal Devouring Orchid, even the leader of the eight great elders, Jue Wenxian, had suffered at his hand.
He was so powerful and possessed such an unbelievable ability at hiding. If he decided to carry out assassinations on the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals, then no one could guard against him apart from their ancestor.
Even the leader of the eight great elders would not be able to escape alive.

Just the thought of this was chilling.
For a moment, the eight great elders’ faces were all sunken, while great elder Lin Sui was racked with regret.
“I will never expel a great elder of my sect over your threats. Let alone a great elder, even a regular elder won’t work. Otherwise, would my Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals still possess any dignity to remain standing on the Grand Sovereign Heaven?” said the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals’ ancestor sternly. He spoke with absolute certainty, leaving absolutely no room for negotiation.
The survival of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals was important, but in the ancestor’s eyes, dignity was even more important.
“That’s right. All the disciples of our Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals would rather die standing than live kneeling. A mere Immortal Emperor like you thinks you can coerce us with the lives of all our disciples so that we will expel a great elder? You’re dreaming,” Jue Wenxian also said with absolute certainty.
“Hold on, ancestor, great elder Jue. Why don’t we let him tell us exactly what heinous deeds great elder Lin Sui has committed? At least let us understand the details of everything. It wouldn’t be too late for us to make a decision then,” said a Third Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperor, looking towards the ancestor and Jue Wenxian.
The ancestor nodded with a sunken face. “If that’s the case, why don’t you tell us exactly what grievance exists between you and Lin Sui?”
“You should ask Lin Sui yourself. You should ask him what he’s done!” Jian Chen’s voice rang out.
“Lin Sui, explain in detail.” The ancestor of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals looked towards Lin Sui.
Lin Sui was rather pale. “It’s because of what happened in the Immortal Region of Green Plains.”
“The Immortal Region of Green Plains?” The Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals’ ancestor furrowed his brows. The seven other great elders did not react in any certain way. They were not surprised.
Lin Sui continued, “Back then, the Immortal Emperors from the Immortal Sect of White Clouds, the Immortal Sect of Luofu, and the Immortal Sect of Yuqing offered me a medium quality god artifact for me to use my curses and deal with an enemy of theirs. However, before I cast the curse, the three of them guaranteed to me that the sect that the enemy came from was extremely feeble, well weaker than their three sects. As a result, I agreed to their request.”
The Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals’ ancestor stared straight at Lin Sui and asked sternly, “Who exactly was the person you cursed to death back then?”
“There was an Immortal Emperor’s mausoleum in the Starfall mountains of the Immortal Region of Green Plains. The mausoleum has a sword formation with its gate of life and gate of death sealed off. The enemy that the three Immortal Emperors wanted to deal with was the person in the mausoleum.” Lin Sui confessed. Before his ancestor, he did not dare to tell any lies.
“What? Y-you actually- you actually- you actually cursed the person in the divine hall to death?” However, after hearing that, the expression of the ancestor changed drastically. His gaze immediately became extremely frightening, staring straight at Lin Sui. Raising his voice filled with a sense of fury, he asked, “Lin Suo, d- do you know- do you know exactly who the people in the divine hall are?”
The ancestor of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals’ response completely stunned Lin Sui. He stood there in a daze, rather uncertain about how to respond. “A-aren’t they the enemy of the three organisations from the Immortal Region of Green Plains? A sect that’s not particularly powerful?”

The seven other great elders of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals looked at one another as well. Clearly, they were perplexed by the ancestor’s reaction.
The Old Monarch of Burial Mountain could not help but ask, “Ancestor, what exactly are the origins of the divine hall in the Starfall mountains?”
The ancestor of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals’ reaction made the great elders realise that this probably was not as simple as it seemed on the surface.
They had obviously heard about the Immortal Emperor’s mausoleum in the Starfall mountains, but they did not pay too much attention to it.
“The origins?” the ancestor of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals murmured. He immediately became extremely solemn, together with some mixed feelings and pity. He paused for a total of ten seconds before saying heavily, “They’re from the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens.”
“The Sword Sect of Violet Heavens? Don’t tell me it’s the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens from the Reverent Observance Heaven?” the Old Monarch of Burial Mountain cried out.
Lin Sui’s expression changed drastically, becoming filled with disbelief. He staggered backwards uncontrollably as he shook his head violently. “Impossible. This is impossible. This is absolutely impossible. How can they be from the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens?”
The six other great elders of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals all became dazed as well before gradually becoming overwhelmed by mixed feelings.
“Lin Sui, did you really curse the disciples of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens to death?” Jue Wenxian suddenly turned towards Lin Sui.
“I-I-I don’t know- I don’t know…” Lin Sui became sheet-white.
“The Sword Sect of Violet Heavens. I didn’t expect the people in the mausoleum within the Starfall mountains were actually from the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens. In other words, the person you killed back then was probably a great elder of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens. Sigh, the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens may have declined to an unbearable state, but they had made tremendous contributions during the war three million years ago.” A great elder of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals sighed.
Jian Chen’s voice rang out again, “There were over seven thousand disciples in total in the divine hall. Over three thousand of them were above Golden Immortal, with over three thousand beneath. They did not die to the three organisations of the Immortal Region of Green Plains. They all died to the Laws of Curses.”
“There was the great elder of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens, Immortal Emperor Taihang. Even though he was heavily injured by the three Immortal Emperors of the Immortal Region of Green Plains, what claimed his life in the end was the Laws of Curses!”
When they heard that, the great elders of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals all fell silent. They all looked at Lin Sui.
“Fellow, these are groundless claims so far. Do you have any evidence to prove that these disciples of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals did indeed die from great elder Lin Sui’s Laws of Curses?” the Old Monarch of Burial Mountain asked.
Jian Chen emerged, appearing several kilometres away in the Divine Armour of Heavenflight. With a wave of his hand, he tossed out Immortal Emperor Taihang’s divine hall.
The Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals’ ancestor immediately sent the senses of his soul over. With his cultivation as a Second Heavenly Layer Immortal Exalt, a medium quality god artifact was unable to stop him. The senses of his soul entered the divine hall with ease, allowing him to see everything inside.
Shortly afterwards, the other great elders of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals released the senses of their souls too, also taking in the situation in the divine hall.
The remains of all the disciples of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens were kept exactly as they were in the divine hall. With their knowledge and experience, they could tell with a single glance that this was not faked.
“Lin Sui, from this moment onwards, you are no longer a great elder of my Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals, nor are you a disciple of my Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals,” the ancestor of the Daoist Sect of Soaring Immortals said emotionlessly, expelling Lin Sui from the sect without any hesitation.
