As the two arrived at a huge residence, they saw two blood-red palm prints on the right stone lion at the entrance. Under the bathing sun, the blood gave off a halo as if they were dyed in blood.
“This is…?” Chu Li frowned. “The Church of the Divine Blood?”
“There’s a total of two palm prints. It’s a message that they’ll kill everyone inside the residence,” Zheng Ze said coldly, “If there’s only one palm print, they would be killing only one person.”
“I thought that they’ll only kill two people since there are only two palm prints.”
“Having two palm prints is a sign for them to kill everyone. If there are three palm prints, they would kill every single living thing inside, including chickens and dogs!”
“They won’t even free the animals?”
“That’s right,” Zheng Ze said coldly. “Any being that contains flesh is their nutrients to further enhance their Bloody Garment Divine Power!”
Chu Li put on a vague smile. “Is there really such a miraculous martial art?”
He had come in contact with the Bloody Garment Divine Power from the Church of the Divine Blood in the past. It indeed had its unique character but they were afraid of Tian Luo Sect’s martial arts the most. The Bloody Garment Divine Power from the Church of the Divine Blood was probably the same as everything else, including its own weaknesses.
“You’ll know better when you encounter them again,” Zheng Ze said indifferently. “The Bloody Garment Divine Power is extremely cruel as it can absorb the flesh. Hence, it’s best to not come in contact with their palms and use your sword when you fight them!”
Chu Li nodded. “I’m skilled in swords.”
“Good,” Zheng Ze said. “I’ll give you a piece of advice — it’s best to not attack them if you’re not one of the Eight Big Factions.”
Chu Li said, “I’m from Ji Dynasty, I’m not afraid of the Church of the Divine Blood to execute their revenge.”
“You’re from the Ji Dynasty?” Zheng Ze looked at him shockingly.
Chu Li asked, “Perhaps Young Hero Zheng has been to Ji Dynasty in the past?”
Zheng Ze shook his head. “I’ve heard of it. Although it’s quite far away, it’s close to the Hundred-Thousand Hills!”
Chu Li laughed, “Hundred-Thousand Hills… Indeed there’s a place called the Hundred-Thousand Hills.”
“I’ve always wanted to see the Hundred-Thousand Hills. I’ll visit the Ji Dynasty someday,” Zheng Ze said.
“Once you’ve entered the Hundred-Thousand Hills, you cannot leave it. Is Young Hero Zheng not afraid of death?”
“I must have a look even if I know I’ll die. It’ll be a waste of my life if I don’t,” Zheng Ze said coldly. “In order to become an Enlightened Master, I can only put my hope on the Hundred-Thousand Hills!”
Chu Li nodded.
As the two of them were speaking, the main entrance opened up out of the blue as an Elder with white beard and a beautiful young lady came out. They were in their fighting attire and had a sword in their hands as if they were ready to fight.
The two were stunned when they saw Chu Li and Zheng Ze.
The young girl frowned. “Are you the disciples from the Church of the Divine Blood?”
Zheng Ze replied, “I’m Zheng Ze, a disciple of the Ultimate Temple. Are you Officer Zheng?”
“I am.” Zheng Shoufang fist saluted and warned, “I suggest the two of you leave quickly. The disciples from the Church of the Divine Blood are about to arrive. Your lives will be in danger if they were to see you. I’ll sin if that happens!”
“Don’t worry Officer Zheng, we’re here to fight against the disciple of the Church of the Divine Blood!” Zheng Ze muttered. “I’m here to stop the Church of the Divine Blood’s disciples to cause more havoc!”
“Sigh…” Zheng Shoufang said helplessly, “Young Hero Zheng, thank you for your sincerity but the disciple from the Church of the Divine Blood who is coming today is a martial arts master. I suggest Young Hero Zheng leave this place as soon as possible. It’ll be too late if you don’t act now.”
Chu Li stood quietly from the side as he looked at the young girl curiously. This lady was so young, yet she was the daughter of Officer Zheng. It seemed that this man might be old but he was still physically capable.
Zheng Ze said, “Does Officer Zheng not believe in me?”
“Sigh…” Zheng Shoufang smiled wryly. “The disciple from the Church of the Divine Blood who is heading here is called Zhu Xing. He’s one of the top disciples in the Church of the Divine Blood. It’s best for Young Hero Zheng to avoid him. I’m grateful for you for having such an intention!”
“Zhu Xing?” Zheng Ze frowned as he harrumphed. “He’s indeed a martial arts master but it’s alright. I can handle him!”
“Young Hero Zheng, you’re not lying to me, right?” Zheng Fangshou was shocked.
The young lady at the side looked happy as well.
It was only natural that she did not want to die and neither did she want to be in the hands of Yu Qiming as well. In fact, that would be more agonizing than death.
However, she wanted to trade herself in exchange for her father’s life. Unfortunately, her father had disagreed no matter what and if anything were to happen, he wanted the two of them to die together. All he wanted was to kill Hu Qiming before he died, then he would be satisfied.
Zheng Ze scoffed. “Although Zhu Xing is skilled, I’m not weak either. So, Officer Zheng and Miss Zheng, don’t you worry at all!”
“We’ll be in your debt, Young Hero Zheng!” Zheng Shoufang said, “Is there any way I can cooperate with you?”
Two people appeared from the corner of the street as they headed towards them. The one who walked at the front was a middle-aged man in fighting attire, whereas the man who was walking behind him was a tall youngster. Although his eyes were brimming brightly, it was as if he disliked making eye contact with everyone else other than Miss Zheng as he kept his gaze on her.
The middle-aged man in fighting attire was neither tall nor short. His face was square and his symmetrical facial figures gave off a righteous vibe. His eyes were filled with spirit as he smiled coldly at Zheng Ze. “Where are you from? How dare you speak in such a condescending way!”
Zheng Ze gave a fist salute and muttered, “I’m Zheng Ze of the Ultimate Temple!”
“So you’re from the Ultimate Temple!” the middle-aged man in fighting attire said coldly.
He did not seem to care as he looked at Officer Zheng. “So Zheng Fangshou, have you decided?”
“My daughter will never marry Hu Qiming!” Zheng Shoufang scoffed. “Zhu Xing, I will not submit even if you’re a disciple from the Church of the Divine Blood!”
“I guess we’ll have to play by the rules then,” Zhu Xing said indifferently. “I’ll send your entire family off!”
“What a bold statement!” Zheng Ze smiled coldly. “I won’t allow you, the disciples from the Church of the Divine Blood to do whatever you wish as long as I’m here!”
“Haha!” Zhu Xing laughed loudly and shook his head at the same time. “What an idiot. You’re Zheng Ze, right?”
“That’s me!” Zheng Ze scoffed.
Zhu Xing shook his head. “Do you really think the Heaven does not dare to take your life?”
Zheng Ze said, “You can give it a try! Hmph, the strong bullying the weak — is this the tradition from the Church of the Divine Blood?”
“You don’t have any right to pry into my matter!” Zhu Xing said coldly. “If you’ve offended me, I’ll kill you even if you’re a disciple from the Ultimate Temple!”
“That depends if you can!” Zheng Ze smiled coldly. “The others may be scared of the Church of the Divine Blood, but we’re not!”
“What a delusional b*stard!” Zhu Xing shook his head and he immediately charged towards Zheng Shoufang. As the former stood in front of the latter, he threw out his blood-red right palm at an incredibly quick speed.
“Whoosh!” Zheng Ze unsheathed his sword, hitting the center of his palm.
“Ding…” When Zhu Xing’s palm landed onto the sword, a loud ring rang.
Zheng Ze’s expression shifted slightly as he did not expect Zhu Xing of the Church from the Divine Blood to be this skilled. The impact from his sword seemed to have absorbed most of his energy out from his body. Then, his body shivered and turned numb as if he was frightened of the encounter with his natural enemy.
Zheng Ze harrumphed as the reflection of his sword increased greatly after he had attacked Zhu Xing.
Zhu Xing said indifferently, “How dare you to show off this pathetic swordsmanship of yours out in the public? It seems that people from the Ultimate Temple are getting weaker and weaker!”
He then threw his palm towards the shadows of the sword.
Zheng Ze staggered. He retreated a few steps back so that he could evade the attack of Zhu Xing’s palm.
He did not expect himself to underestimate Zhu Xing. Rather, the latter was incredibly skilled in the Bloody Garment Divine Power.
However, Zhu Xing did not seem excited at all.
He shook his head in disappointment because his opponent was an inexperienced fighter.
Then, he glanced at Chu Li before he suddenly pounced at him. His blood-red palm was aimed towards Chu Li’s chest at lightning speed.
