“He… He was really struck by lightning!”
The person who first broke the silence in the room was Elder Du, one of the elders from another sect who had been invited by Taoist Qingxuan. His aged voice was clearly trembling as he spoke.
Another sect’s elder, Elder Ma, also stammered, “This… This is karma! A martial artist’s oath could actually incur the wrath of the heavens!”
“That’s not possible! It’s impossible!”
Taoist Qingxuan’s eyes widened in shock, but he was unwilling to believe that what happened just then was real.
Tang Zheng had a solemn look on his face. After staring at Taoist Qingxuan for a long while, he got up and went to check on Yuan Luo himself.
Tang Zheng channeled his internal energy into Yuan Luo’s body and carefully checked Yuan Luo’s condition with a serious expression.
“It’s just a superficial wound, but a small crack appeared in his dantian from the powerful lightning.”
Hearing what Tang Zheng said, everyone’s expression, except for Lu Zijia, suddenly changed.
The dantian was where martial artists stored their internal energy. If the dantian was broken, they naturally couldn’t store internal energy anymore. When the internal energy in the dantian completely dissipated, they would be no different from ordinary people.
Of course, the people present changed their expressions not because Yuan Luo would become an ordinary person in the future, but because of the powerful “Heaven’s Wrath”.
“So, was he struck by lightning for lying?”
Lu Zijia said innocently at this moment, then patted her chest with lingering fear. “Fortunately I wasn’t lying, or I would be in the same condition as him.”
Luo Baode: “…” This girl really touched a sore spot. He wondered if she did it on purpose.
However, whether it was intentional or not, it was a good explanation!
Look, Taoist Qingxuan’s face was almost greener than a cuckolded man. It really made people feel good!
Tang Zheng called two disciples over. After bringing Yuan Luo out, he looked at Taoist Qingxuan and said, “Fourth Elder, what else do you have to say?”
Taoist Qingxuan pulled a long face and said with a mildly angry voice, “Sect Master, what do you mean? Are you questioning me?”
Tang Zheng’s expression didn’t change, but his voice became even more stern and there was even a hint of warning in it. “You saw what happened just then. Does the Fourth Elder also want to make an oath?”
Tang Zheng’s words were obviously a reminder to the Fourth Elder not to be stubborn anymore. He would only be the one who would lose his dignity in the end if he denied it.
However, Taoist Qingxuan didn’t understand his kind reminder.
Taoist Qingxuan slammed the table angrily and stood up, glaring at Tang Zheng. “Sect Master, I know you’ve always been biased against me, but I didn’t expect you to see me like this.
“As the Sect Master, you can’t even tell right from wrong. You’ve really disappointed me!”
After saying that, Qingxuan wanted to leave.
However, could he really leave so easily?
The answer was naturally no!
Luo Baode got up and blocked Taoist Qingxuan’s way. He smiled kindly, out of habit. “The matter hasn’t been resolved yet. Why is Taoist Qingxuan leaving in such a hurry?”
He wanted to come and go as he pleased? What did he take the Special Administration Office for? If he didn’t teach the guy who framed him a lesson today, others would think that he was an easy target in the future!
Looking at Luo Baode’s smiling face, Taoist Qingxuan only felt tortured inside. He gritted his teeth and said, “What do you want?”
Luo Baode was amused. “Fourth Elder, you’re wrong. I should be the one asking you what you want from me. After all, you were the one who said I was an evil cultivator and even found people from other sects to suppress me.”
