On the other side, Qiao Qu pondered for a moment. Their plan was an escape, but they could also be said to be running away like stray dogs. If Ye Qingyu had not come today, they would have turned into corpses. Now that senior brother Jin Yu had died, what other plans would they have. Although she was a woman, she was incredibly attentive. She turned to Qin Hui and said, “Young Madam, since you have returned to Ancient Sky Dragon Sect, you must already have a complete plan in mind. We are willing to listen to your orders.”
“I have no plans, this time Lord Ye Qingyu is the leader of all operations in Ancient Sky Dragon Domain,” Qin Hui answered frankly and without any hesitation.
There was a bit of resoluteness in the young mother’s eyes.
Although she didn’t know what Ye Qingyu would do next, but from what she had seen and felt along the way, it had given her complete trust in the young man from Heaven Wasteland Domain. It could even be said to be reverence towards a very strong expert in the world of martial arts.
All eyes were then gathered on Ye Qingyu.
In fact, everybody had expected Qin Hui to say this. ‘The strongest becomes the King’ was a true saying.
Ye Qingyu smiled, “I also don’t have any plan yet, let's go to Yu Leaf City first. I heard that Zhang Ye and Qiao Qu have a deep understanding of the present Ancient Sky Dragon Domain. Why don't you come with me to Yu Leaf City, and the rest of the people will stay here until the matters in Yu Leaf City are resolved, then we will return.”
Everybody agreed to the arrangement.
Only Zhang Ye hesitated, “I am willing to listen to Lord Ye Qingyu's command, but... but the rest of the people here are short on food and water. The other brothers can hold on for some time, but, Madam Luo and the ordinary people, they...”
Zhang Ye's eyes were filled with concerns.
He knew that Ye Qingyu had already saved them and that he absolutely should not ask for more favours. However, he was a simple and honest person, and really could not stand to see the ordinary people starve to death here. Thus, he shamelessly spoke out.
Although Cheng Kui and the other disciples could rely on yuan qi to withstand for a few more days, but the ordinary people could not hold on any longer. Moreover, this place was far from Yu Leaf City, and if the other traitors came when they left, then the hundreds of people would be slaughtered like lambs.
“Oh, you do not have to worry about that, I already have arrangements,” Ye Qingyu said with a smile.
Soon after, the group of people walked out of the stone room.
In a flash, the gazes of all the people in the city of ruins were focused on Ye Qingyu, filled with awe, anticipation and reverence.
Ye Qingyu nodded lightly.
He already had an idea in mind on how to solve the problem of the survival of the huge group in Lifeng City.
With a thought.
There were faint sparkling snowflakes fluttering up from Ye Qingyu’s body, like spirits, multiplying to countless snowflakes within seconds. The snowy, silver light flowed like water ripples, like the first glimmer of dawn, and directly formed into a silver light barrier. In the blink of an eye it had already expanded to a radius of thousands of meters, and with a loud rumble, protected everybody within it.
The light barrier screen was faintly discernible, and the dense formation markings on it were like spirit fishes swimming around, emitting an extremely pure spiritual aura.
As the formation descended, the hundreds of ordinary people did not feel the slightest unusual movement, but those with martial background were shocked to find that there was a strange and terrifying power rapidly radiating in all directions.
The wind and sand were cut off, the air began to feel fresh and natural, and the temperature had gradually become soft and comfortable.
Such air and such a temperature had never been felt in Ancient Sky Dragon Domain for at least one hundred years.
In an instant, everyone felt incredibly comfortable, pleasantly surprised, and displayed a smile of incomparable joy and comfort.
Ye Qingyu smiled, drawing a line in the air with his finger.
This finger seemed to have split open a glacier.
A tremendous square wall of xuan ice that was nearly ten meters tall and around ten meters thick, had appeared out of nowhere.
The power of a Saint can create ice with one thought.
The power of laws surpassed the way of nature. With Ye Qingyu current understanding of the laws of Heaven and earth, let alone creating xuan ice in this dried up world, it was also possible for him to do so in a fire domain.
Zhang Ye and the rest were dumbfounded at the sight, as though they had seen a God, they almost knelt to the ground and kowtowed to Ye Qingyu.
“Even the former Patriarch may not be able to do this. The power of Lord Ye Qingyu really is terrifying. He is so young, how could he be so strong. Could it be that he looks young on the surface but is in fact already thousands of years old?”
Zhang Ye and the others couldn’t help thinking in their mind.
The giant ice block could solve the water problem of the hundreds of people, and Cheng Kui and the other experts could turn ice into water at any time to provide it to the ordinary people. It was enough to support them for dozens of days.
Finally, Ye Qingyu took out some food from the [Cloud Top Cauldron] that could quickly replenish strength and vitality and gave it to Zhang Ye, who distributed them among the ordinary people.
Such an arrangement was foolproof.
Zhang Ye and the others finally felt at ease.
After making some arrangements, Zhang Ye and Qiao Qu went over to thank Ye Qingyu and Qin Hui again, and then headed for Yu Leaf City with them.
The others only saw a flash of brilliance in front of them and Ye Qingyu and the others had already disappeared where they were.
Yu Leaf City.
In the air.
Ye Qingyu was looking down from the sky.
Known as one of the few giant cities in Ancient Sky Dragon Domain that had not deteriorated, Yu Leaf City was not at all inferior to the ruins city that Ye Qingyu had seen before in terms of size and area. However, the inside situation of Yu Leaf City was a little disappointing to Ye Qingyu.
Because the giant city, which had not fallen, could only be described with the words ‘not all had died’. In many streets and alleys there were corpses piled up, and the main street was as desolate as an abandoned city. There were very few people around and occasionally a few shops that were open. It was a completely deserted city.
This huge city, which was enough to accommodate tens of millions of people, revealed everything under Ye Qingyu’s powerful divine sense. There were less than one million people living in this city, and if this continued, Ye Qingyu was certain that in less than ten years, the giant city will fall into the same fate as the other ruined cities.
Zhang Ye and the others were standing next to Ye Qingyu, suspended in the Void by Ye Qingyu’s power, and seeing that Ye Qingyu seemed to be in deep thought, they also did not dare to say a word.
After a while.
“Let's go down.”
Ye Qingyu's voice sounded.
Before the several other people could respond, everything blurred in front of them, and when they looked again, they had already reached the ground.
“This is...” Zhang Ye was slightly surprised. Upon a careful look he found that he was situated on a straight and neat street that was at least twenty meters wide. On both sides of the street were numerous magnificent buildings, pavilions, and in front of them stood a huge mansion, majestic and cold. At each side of the door there were ten Ancient Sky Dragon Sect disciples, and behind them were two giant sky dragon statues that were as high as ten meters. It was as if they were real, emitting a glorious aura.
This was the City Lord's residence!
Zhang Ye was once one of the rulers of Yu Leaf City, and was incredibly familiar with its layout. In one glance he was able to tell that he was situated at the most central area of Yu Leaf City, the entrance to the City Lord’s residence.
At this moment, a clamour broke out.
“Heavens, it's snowing, ahahaha, this is great, I'm not dreaming right?”
“Mother, Mother, come out, it's snow, look, it's really snowing? It's so cold, didn’t you say that after snow melts it becomes water, we now have water...”
Several figures appeared on the streets.
It was unknown when it had started to snow heavily in Yu Leaf City. In the blink of an eye, snowflakes were flurrying around like goose feathers. Everywhere had turned white, and the temperature had dropped to a cool and refreshing temperature.
For many of the civilians who were struggling between the line of life and death, it was simply a miracle that had fallen from Heaven. Although shocked by the fact that it was snowing in Yu Leaf City, many people could not care too much and only thought to snatch as much snow as possible. A patch of snow was a drop of water, which was as precious as gold in Yu Leaf City.
The entire Yu Leaf City was overjoyed.
Except, of course, a few people.
“Why did it snow?” The disciples standing at the door of the City Lord’s residence were shocked, and then he saw a group of people heading straight towards the entrance, led by a youngster in white, who they had never seen before. It was obvious that they were going to break into the residence.
“Stand still, you...” One of the bodyguard disciples had just opened his mouth and wanted to ask something.
Just then, a gust of wind blew.
The gust of icy wind brought over a flurry of snowflakes, and before the ten guard disciples could react they had frozen to the spot and had turned into ice sculptures.
Ye Qingyu went straight through the entrance of the City's Lord residence.
Zhang Ye and the others followed behind. Upon seeing this scene, and then looking at the snowflakes fluttering in the sky, they even more felt that Ye Qingyu's strength was unfathomable, and beyond what they could understand.
The City Lord’s residence was enormous and deep.
Ye Qingyu had already locked on where the core area was with his divine sense, and did not need Zhang Ye to remind him. He walked forward at a steady pace, snow and ice surrounding him. Along the way, as soon as there were traitor disciples of the Ancient Sky Dragon Sect that appeared, they were turned into ice sculptures with different but distinctive expressions before they could utter a single word.
A blizzard separated the road of life and death.
This scene left Zhang Ye and the others dazzled. His remarkable powers seemed like it could control the Heaven and earth, and that his will was Heaven’s will. It was unknown where Young Madam Qin Hui had found such a powerful expert. The Ancient Sky Dragon Sect was incredibly lucky.
As they were in deep thought, the main hall of the City Lord’s residence was in front.
It was only at this moment that the experts of the Ancient Sky Dragon Sect who were guarding the City Lord’s residence had realized that something was wrong. They seemed to be in a meeting, rushing out into the main hall one after another to see Ye Qingyu and the others walking in in the midst of snow and wind. They were headed by a fifty-year-old imposing-looking expert who was around the pinnacle of the Immortal Step realm. His face changed as he lifted his hand to point at Ye Qingyu, and was about to ask...
The wind blew again.
Snowflakes drifted with the wind.
The next moment, the dozens of experts as well as the guards at the entrance and along the way were instantly turned into ice sculptures without exception. They all had clear expressions and different looks and movements as they froze to the spot.
Ye Qingyu did not have time, and simply did not want to waste time talking to these people.
