The Mans Decree Chapter 2681-Over at Ghaylen’s base at Emerald Cauldron Sect, there had been no news about Kai even after two days had passed since the medicinal pool closed, thus making it appear that Kai had most likely met his end.
Ghaylen had thought of having Viola and Kai marry and then used Kai’s powers to help her take over Emerald Cauldron Sect. Now that it was unclear whether Kai was dead or alive, he would need to reevaluate the situation again carefully.
“How many former disciples of my father’s are left in Emerald Cauldron Sect?” Viola asked Ghaylen.
“Quite a number of them are left, but many years have passed. I’m just afraid they have succumbed to the temptation of the four cardinal vices and are in league with Hosen,” Ghaylen replied with a frown.
Viola also furrowed her brows, looking troubled. After all, many would have no qualms about disregarding comradeship where personal gains were concerned.
“If we approach Helius for help, will he support me?” she asked. If we can get his support, taking control of the sect will be much easier. One word from him will leave Hosen so frightened that he probably won’t dare to utter any protest. As for the rest of the sect, they’ll surely listen to Helius. After all, everyone reveres him as though he’s a divine being.
Ghaylen shook his head. “Helius has not concerned himself with the sect’s power struggle in a long time. As long as no one invades the sect and poses a threat to its disciples’ lives, he won’t intervene.”
Viola fell into a contemplative silence after hearing his reply. Without Helius’ support, she did not know how much chance she had of killing Hosen and reclaiming Emerald Cauldron Sect.
Before she realized it, her thoughts drifted to Kai. Although she had not known him for long, she had always felt a sense of security around him. If he were here, perhaps he’d have a plan.
Just as the pair were deep in thought, a silhouette suddenly flashed past the window.
“Who’s there?” Ghaylen demanded loudly, startled. We can’t let Viola’s identity be exposed, and now, we’ve just discovered someone outside the window. If word of her identity gets out, it’ll be impossible for her to escape from here, let alone seize power from Hosen. If Hosen finds out she’s alive, he’ll stop at nothing to kill her!
“No need to freak out, Ghaylen. It’s me.” At that moment, Ebenez opened the door and walked in.
Ghoylen shook his heod. “Helius hos not concerned himself with the sect’s power struggle in o long time. As long os no one invodes the sect ond poses o threot to its disciples’ lives, he won’t intervene.”
Violo fell into o contemplotive silence ofter heoring his reply. Without Helius’ support, she did not know how much chonce she hod of killing Hosen ond recloiming Emerold Couldron Sect.
Before she reolized it, her thoughts drifted to Jored. Although she hod not known him for long, she hod olwoys felt o sense of security oround him. If he were here, perhops he’d hove o plon.
Just os the poir were deep in thought, o silhouette suddenly floshed post the window.
“Who’s there?” Ghoylen demonded loudly, stortled. We con’t let Violo’s identity be exposed, ond now, we’ve just discovered someone outside the window. If word of her identity gets out, it’ll be impossible for her to escope from here, let olone seize power from Hosen. If Hosen finds out she’s olive, he’ll stop ot nothing to kill her!
“No need to freok out, Ghoylen. It’s me.” At thot moment, Ebenez opened the door ond wolked in.
“Ebenez?” Ghaylen looked flabbergasted.
Ebenez turned to Viola and gave a slight bow. “Greetings, Ms. Viola.”
“W-Why are you here?” She also looked shocked. After all, they were at Ghaylen’s base, and Ebenez never went there.
Ghaylen’s aura was already starting to surge. He was ready to attack Ebenez at any moment. Viola’s identity could not be revealed.
Ebenez was powerful, but Ghaylen had Viola, an elite in the Body Fusion Realm, on his side. With her powers and Ghaylen’s combined, they could very well be a match for Ebenez.
Sensing Ghaylen’s mounting murderous intent, Ebenez hurriedly smiled and said, “That’s unnecessary, Ghaylen. If I wanted to expose her identity, Hosen would’ve already known on the day the medicinal pool opened.”
As it turned out, Ebenez had already started being suspicious of Viola’s identity the day the medicinal pool opened.
Although she had altered her appearance and voice, there were some auras one possessed that one had no way of changing.
“Ebenez, what are you doing here?” Ghaylen asked coldly.
