The little foxes looked at each other in horror and confusion. Su Chan was so angry that she was trembling all over and she shouted, "You're spewing nonsense. We've never had such an idea!"
Yan Fang was contemptuous as she sneered and said, "Of course, the thief would not announce that he's a thief!"
Ruan Hongling also whispered to Zi Yuan with a shocked face, "Zi Yuan Shijie, this... is this real or not?"
Zi Yuan shook her head and said, "You have been dealing with Li Yundong for so long. Don't you know what kind of person he is? He is definitely not that kind of guy. I believe him!"
Ruan Hongling nodded as well. "I believe him too, but the problem now is... This is an issue that could offend all the cultivators in the world. What should we do? Should we help him?"
Zi Yuan gazed at Li Yundong with a complicated look. She sighed softly and whispered, "I don't seem to have any other choice..."
Ruan Hongling also seemed to have made up her mind at this time. She gritted her teeth and said, "Anyway, our Lingong Sect is used to being alone now. At worst, we'll be enemies with the whole world. What's so great about it!"
After saying that, she raised her breath and tried to use her Zhenqi to protect her body from any possible changes.
But as soon as Ruan Hongling raised her head, her face changed dramatically. She cried out in surprise, "I can't mobilize my Zhenqi anymore!"
The cultivators of the other sects were frozen for a second by her shout. They subconsciously channeled their Zhenqi, but then they suddenly realized that the Zhenqi in their bodies was as deep as cement. No matter how hard they tried, they were unable to move as they wished!
This was a great shock and everyone turned pale with fright. "I can't mobilize my Zhenqi either!"
"What's going on?"
"Have we been poisoned?"
Everyone was there for the tea and food which had been supplied by the Gezao Sect. Hence, when they discovered that they had suddenly been poisoned, they immediately looked at Wan Zhenyuan.
However, when they saw Wan Zhenyuan's face, pale with shock, and the anger in his eyes, they couldn't help but be stunned.
Wan Zhenyuan said slowly to everyone, "Don't look at me, I can't mobilize my Zhenqi either!"
The crowd suddenly burst into an uproar and asked one after another, "What's going on?"
Zou Ping said to Zhang Ling with a pale face, "Master, can you mobilize your Zhenqi? Why do I feel tired all over?"
Zhang Ling's face darkened. She shook her head slightly and said in a low voice, "No, my Zhenqi seems to have solidified and I can't move it at all! I feel the same as you."
Zou Ping was both shocked and angry. "Who poisoned us? How dare they?"
Zhang Ling looked at Zhuang Yating coldly, then laughed and said, "Who else could it be but her? Don't talk, try your best to get Qi control!" As she said this, she closed her eyes, ignoring the mess around her, and started to use her own Qi.
When Zi Yuan and the others mobilized their Zhenqi, they also found that the Zhenqi in their bodies was as heavy as a stone weighing a thousand pounds. They couldn't mobilize it at all. Even if they did manage to, it was extremely slow, like a crawling worm.
Zi Yuan saw that Li Yundong's eyes were closed and there was no expression on his face. She couldn't help asking, "Li Yundong, how are you feeling?"
After a while, he opened his eyes and whispered, "Well, my Zhenqi seems to have solidified. I can't mobilize it at all."
Zhou Qin could not help but exclaim, "Master, even I can use a little bit of Zhenqi. Why can't you?"
Li Yundong's face was cold and he didn't speak. Zi Yuan suddenly thought of something and said, "Is it because the higher the cultivation, the deeper the poison? Is, is this the Immortal Fall?"
"The Immortal Fall? What's that?" Zhou Qin, Su Chan, and the rest asked in shock.
Zi Yuan looked at Yan Fang in surprise and said, "Hasn't the Immortal Fall been lost? How did she get it again? This poison doesn't cause much harm when it enters one's body, but it will slow down a person's blood flow and aura. Zhenqi is driven by blood and qi. If one's blood and qi are slowed, the Zhenqi will slow down too. Therefore, this poison is the nemesis of cultivators. The more high-level a person is, the deeper they will be poisoned!"
Ruan Hongling said in surprise, "Could it be that the poison was in the tea?"
Zhou Qin immediately said, "I didn't drink tea, but I was poisoned!"
Beside her, Su Chan had an idea. She shouted, "I know!" The girl pointed at the incense burner that was curling with smoke and said, "That's it, right?"
By then, most of the people had come to their senses. They had not expected that so many cultivators would fall into the hands of Song Yuqiao, a little girl!
Everyone glared at her. "Little girl, did you light the Immortal Fall?"
Song Yuqiao trembled with fear at being glared at by so many cultivators. She held her pipa and hid behind Yan Fang, not daring to show her face or speak.
Wan Zhenyuan laughed angrily and said, "I didn't expect that! Really! Yan Fang, you actually turned my disciple! Good, really good!"
Yan Fang sneered and said, "Your disciple? Hahaha, Xiaoqiao has been my disciple since she was five. It's just that nobody knew!"
Wan Zhenyuan was shocked. "From then on, you had been planning to set a trap?"
Yan Fang sneered and said, "I just arranged it casually. I hadn't expected that this unintentional plan would lead to such a result. Haha, it's God's will!"
Wan Zhenyuan laughed angrily and said, "Good means, really good means! However, this is a grudge between you and the Fox Zen School. Why are you involving us in it?"
Yan Fang laughed and said, "If I didn't, how could I have schemed against these evildoers from the Fox Zen School?"
When everyone heard this, they all burst out cursing. For a time, all kinds of slanderous words could be heard.
However, Yan Fang pretended not to hear them. She snorted and said, "If the monarch does not keep secrets, he will lose his courtiers. If courtiers do not keep secrets, they will lose their jobs or even their lives, and if secret matters are not kept secret, it will cause disaster. I think you'd better save some strength. The more you use your strength, the more potent the Immortal Fall will be. Be careful, or else your cultivation will be greatly reduced after the effect of the drug comes. If that happens, you can't blame me!"
When everyone heard this, they became angrier and angrier, but they weren't speaking loudly anymore. All of their eyes were filled with anger, but they didn't dare to say anything. They were beginning to concentrate on mobilizing their Zhenqi.
Seeing that everyone had quieted down, Yan Fang said to Li Yundong and the others, "Li Yundong, you are now a turtle in a hole. If you have any last words to say, say them quickly!"
Su Chan, Zhou Qin, and the others were all furious. They glared at Yan Fang, but Li Yunyang's face was calm, and he said coldly, "How is Ao Wushuang?"
Yan Fang laughed and said, "You're a clay Bodhisattva crossing the river. You can't even protect yourself, but you're still thinking about that b*tch, Ao Wushuang?"
Li Yunyang was not angry. He fixed his eyes on Yan Fang and said, "I just want to know what you've done to her."
Yan Fang snorted. She turned her wrist and took out a small purple bell from her bosom. Li Yundong looked at it and saw that it was about the size of a palm. It was entirely purple and carved with exquisite patterns. It was the Emperor's Clock!
Yan Fang sneered and said, "Ao Wushuang is among them. Do you want to save her?"
Li Yunyang nodded and said, "Since you have the Emperor's Clock, I'm relieved!"
Yan Fang was stunned, and she said with some vigilance, "What do you want to do?"
As soon as she finished speaking, she saw Li Yundong suddenly open his eyes, which were shining brightly. His body was like a fierce tiger, pouncing on Yan Fang like thunder.
Yan Fang was so shocked that her face turned pale and she exclaimed, "Impossible! How can you still use Qi control?" As she spoke, she subconsciously blocked with her palms in front of her.
The two men's palms collided with each other, and suddenly there was a loud bang. Yan Fang's body shook violently, and her whole body seemed to be hit by an electric current. As for Li Yundong, he quickly lowered himself and poked at Yan Fang's Qihai with his fingers.
Yan Fang had suffered losses by Li Yundong's hands one after another before, and her fear of him had been rooted deep in her subconsciousness. She was numb all over because of Li Yundong's palm strength. In a short time, her reactions became slightly slower, and she was poked in the Qihai in her lower abdomen by Li Yundong's finger.
Qihai was a large acupoint of the human body's Ren meridians. Once touched here, one's whole body would go numb and be unable to exert strength.
Yan Fang suddenly fell to the ground softly. She looked at Li Yundong in shock and anger and said, "This is impossible. How can you still move?"
Li Yunyang was also slightly short of breath at this time. His face was pale, but he stared at Yan Fang and did not speak.
Seeing this, Yan Fang suddenly had a thought. She laughed and said, "You really deserve it. You can't live. You're courting death! You even tried to struggle with Qi after being hit by my The Immortal Fall. Now, look! You're finding that you can't move at all, right?"
Li Yundong's forehead was covered with a layer of sweat. He said coldly, "Can you move?"
Yan Fang sneered and said, "Hum, everyone is about equal, I can barely differentiate them. But don't forget, I still have my apprentice here!"
As she spoke, she shouted at Song Yuqiao behind her, "Xiao Qiao, come and kill this evil man!"
Zhou Qin and Su Chan were so shocked that they wanted to stand up, especially Zhou Qin, but her bones were broken. When she tried to move, she was in so much pain that she broke out in a cold sweat and almost collapsed on the spot with a snort.
Zi Yuan was quick-witted and immediately grabbed Su Chan and Zhou Qin. She said in a low voice, "Don't do stupid things. Don't move after being hit by The Immortal Fall. You will recover after the effects of the drug. If you force yourself to move, you will be like Li Yundong, who can't move at all. Moreover, your recovery time will be greatly extended."
Zhou Qin did not speak. She gritted her teeth as if she was enduring intense pain, and Su Chan's face was full of shock and anger. She shouted, "Am I just going to watch Yundong be killed?"
Zi Yuan smiled and said, "Don't be silly. Li Yundong has been preparing for this day. However, he wasn't expecting Yan Fang to use the poison of The Immortal Fall. He will be fine. Don't worry."
Su Chan's eyes widened in shock. "What? Did Yundong already know that Shibo Zhuang Yating was Yan Fang?"
Zi Yuan nodded gently and said, "That's right!"
Su Chan and the others were shocked. They couldn't help but look at the scene.
Zi Yuan sighed softly. "It's just that I hadn't expected the Taoist assembly to end up like this. Too many accidents happened... The situation has already become chaotic and out of control."
At that moment, the cultivators from the various sects present were closing their eyes and testing their Qi. They could hear what was going on clearly but did not have the mind to help in any way.
"What if they move? Their cultivation will be greatly reduced in the future?"
There were dogs snapping at each other from both sides. It was just a good time for them to watch the fire from the shore. They would not do a thing that would hurt themselves and benefit others!
After shouting at Song Yuqiao, Yan Fang couldn't sense any movement behind her. She endured the intense pain and turned around only to see Song Yuqiao trembling all over and looking at Li Yundong with fear in her eyes. She was so timid that she didn't dare to go forward.
Yan Fang suddenly became furious and scolded her, "Are you deaf? Come and kill this scum!"
