Master of Science and Technology - Chapter 62

“Pardon us. As you can see, we were forced into this position.”
The students of the two Sects helplessly explained.
“Hmph, no need for explanations. Everyone knows the reality of how things came about. Stop jabbering and just start moving.”
Thinking of their four dead classmates, the students of Qing Yue Sword Sect truly detested the Jin Guang and Wu Zhu Sects.
In the Guang Fa Sect, a monk bowed towards the students of the Two Sects, uttering a Buddhist Amitabha, speaking: “The Buddhist we believe in is merciful. This Zhou parson had already entered the demonic path. Please, all those that hear, please do not assist him in his demonic ways.”
Sadly, although Yu Qing’s Kong Qingyun had unexpectedly dodged an immediate death from Zhou Ming, the students of the two Sects still didn’t think Zhou Ming would lose. If they didn’t obey him now and waited until after he had finished off the Yu Qing Sect students, they themselves would surely be stuck in an unfortunate situation.
Without any more unnecessary chatter, the Sects Wu Zhu and Jin Guang, and the Guang Fa and Qing Yue Sword Sects began fighting. Of course, although it seemed messy, no one was really trying, It was like they were acting.
The students of the Qing Yue Sword Sect truly hated the other Two Sects, but they only had three people who could truly fight. The damage they could do was limited. As for Guang Fa, they had only formed a fighting stance and blocked off the attacks in a defensive position. They didn’t seem to want to fight, even distancing the Two Sects from the Qing Yue Sword Sect, trying to prevent real damage.
Away from the Two Sects and their acting skills, Zhou Ming had already begun attacking the Yu Qing Sect, his flying sword cutting lines of light in the air. But, the Yu Qing Sect had already gotten a reminder and began developing a pattern to work against the flying sword. Although they were not completely safe, it was still better than being helpless.
However, the odds were still not in Yu Qing’s favor. Zhou Ming’s sword technique could be counted as a distanced offensive. They could only move defensively against the attacks from the flying sword; having no chance to attack.
There was the saying “a long defensive is a lost battle”. Quickly, two of the four Secular Warriors from the Yu Qing Sect fell under Zhou Ming’s blade. The remaining two were only narrowly saved by the Yu Qing students; bearing heavy wounds.
“Haha! I’d like to see how long you can hold on!”
The four Secular Warriors had been wearing the same uniforms as the Yu Qing students. Zhou Ming didn’t know that the two people he had killed were just Secular Warriors. Seeing their fall, he let out a mad cackle. At the same time, his moves became more aggravated. Although this technique was coarse, the forcefulness of this attack was also intimidating.
At this time, all felt a quake on the earth. Immediately following this, a hill appeared beneath Zhou Ming’s feet. Zhou Ming sensed something was wrong and prepared to fly to another place. However, he did not anticipate that a giant python head would emerge from the ground. Its mouth was opened wide, seeming to want to swallow the sky itself, Zhou Ming didn’t have the time to dodge. In a single bite, he was swallowed by the python.
This python was Ye Zan’s pet: Goldie. Goldie’s head was the size of a small house. She could swallow an elephant with a single bite, not to say a human, like Zhou Ming.
After Goldie swallowed Zhou Ming, she didn’t stay there for long; immediately returning underground, leaving only a dark hole where she once was.
Everyone else was shocked. The once reckless and arrogant Zhou Ming, just disappeared like this in the blink of an eye?
The members of the Wu Zhu and Jin Guang Sects were a bit conflicted by this situation. On one hand, they were relieved at escaping the clutches of Zhou Ming. On the other hand, without the shield of Zhou Ming, they would have to face the fury of the other Three Sects,
However, before the Three Sects could say anything, the students of the Jin Guang Sect had already pointed their swords at the Wu Zhu Sect.
“Se, Seniors, what is the meaning of this?” Sun Li and the other members of the Wu Zhu Sect stuttered, their expressions turning sour.
“What is the meaning of this?” A student named Huang Yi stood out from the Jin Guang Sect, pointing at Sun Li and his classmates, unrestrainedly saying: “You dare ask us what the meaning of this is? If you hadn’t brought that man out, our Sect’s Senior Xiang Hong wouldn’t have died, the members of the QIng Yue Sword Sect wouldn’t have died either. All of these problems were caused by you guys, and you still shamelessly ask me what the meaning of this is?”
Huang Yi’s speech immediately cleared the Jin Guang Sect of any wrongdoing, while also pushing the Wu Zhu Sect into a cage. He wasn’t wrong, though. These problems were the results of Wu Zhu Sect’s interference. If they hadn’t tried training a responder, there wouldn’t be the resulting madman Zhou Ming.
With Huang Yi’s words, the other Three Sect’s hatred was immediately directed towards the Wu Zhu Sect, Qing Yue Sword Sect especially. They had lost much in this trip. The students that could be brought into this Realm were the most elite of the Sect. But now, they had lost four in a single trip. How could they explain to their Master when they exited the Realm?
Seeing this, Sun Li hurriedly explained: “Please, everyone, we were also forced to do this. Even if we protested and gave up our lives, would he have shown mercy to you? We also have a Junior that was killed in his hands. Are we not hurt by this?”
“Hmph,” Huang Yi coldly hummed, saying: ”Don’t act clueless to me. Would you not know the history of Zhou? How would he have your Wu Zhu Sect’s Hundred Treasure Space? And you call him “Antecessor”. Do you really think that the title of “Antecessor” can cut off your ties with him?”
At this time, a monk from Guang Fa stepped out and spoke to the Two Sects, saying: ”Seniors, I think that we cannot get results from this endless arguing. Let’s leave it to the Masters to find a judgment. The problem at hand is to leave this place. If that python comes back, none of us can defend against it.”
Hearing the monk’s speech, everyone there thought of the scene from before, and could not help but to give a cold shiver.
That madman had been a Master of the Foundation State but had been swallowed in a single bite by that beast. A single person was definitely not enough to fill a beast’s stomach. If they came back like the monk had said, it was probable that not a single person would be able to escape.
“Fine, we’ll first hold this off. When we leave the Realm, Jin Guang Sect will definitely need an explanation from the Wu Zhu Sect!”
After saying this, Huang Yi bowed towards the other Three Sects, saying: ”My apologies for the events of before. We were helpless in the situation. Fortunately, there was not much damage done. Please, Seniors, we ask for your understanding.”
With Huang Yi’s attitude, the Three Sects did not engage further on the topic. In any view, Jin Guang Sects was considered one of the victims of this ordeal.
No matter what, everyone there knew that the current location was not a safe one to stay in.
The task at hand was to immediately find an exit and leave.
As for whether or not they would investigate further, they would wait on the Master’s opinions after telling them of the events in the Realm.
Meanwhile, the Yu Qing students had already received orders from Ye Zan through the communication device, telling them to leave the Realm with the other Four Sects.
Thus, they didn’t say much else, picking up Zhou Ming’s fallen flying sword and taking the two Secular Warriors, leaving with the other Four Sects.
