Ye Changxuan caught up to Lao Guzhuo and growled lowly, slamming his palm toward him. "Stop right there!"Lao Guzhuo sensed the powerful attack from behind and quickly turned to collide his fist with Ye Changxuan's. With a loud bang, Lao Guzhuo suffered serious injuries and fell to the ground.
Ye Zhantian chased after Big Man Lei but the huge man disappeared out of Ye Zhantian and the others' line of sight.
Beginner Tenth Level! Ye Zhantian's expression changed. One had to be at least beginner Tenth Level to possess speed like Big Man Lei's!
"Little Chen, how are you?" After Ye Changxuan and Ye Zhantian had captured Lao Guzhuo and Tuoba Yu, they hurriedly turned back and asked Ye Chen with concern.
"I'm fine." Ye Chen shook his head. He had already suppressed his injury by using the Celestial Chi in his body. After Big Man Lei ate the medicinal pill, his strength increased multiple times and reached the realm of a true beginner Tenth Level combatant. It seemed that there was still a distance between a beginner Tenth Level combatant and him. Ye Chen used his Astral Body to search the surroundings but could not find Big Man Lei. He must have already run far away. Big Man Lei's escape caused Ye Chen to feel worried.
At this time, Ye Zhanlong and the others rushed over. They quickly helped Ye Chen up after seeing that he was injured.
"Grandpa, what pills can make your strength soar after eating it?" Ye Chen looked at Ye Changxuan and asked.
"You mean Big Man Lei ate a medicinal pill like that? It could be the Hysteria Pill." Ye Changxuan mused.
"The Hysteria Pill is a type of Tier Six medicine. It's said that every officer in the upper echelons of Nanman Kingdom has one. When they eat it at a critical moment, it will cause their strength to increase exponentially but the effects only last for a short period. After the pill wears off, it will cause permanent damage to the body and might even cause one's level to drop."
"I see, so there was such a medicinal pill." Ye Chen nodded. If Big Man Lei's level dropped, then perhaps he would not have to be so afraid anymore.
Ye Chen took a hit from Big Man Lei who had eaten a Hysteria Pill, but still remained intact. Ye Changxuan, Ye Zhantian, and others were amazed. Little Chen's strength was increasing by leaps and bounds. It had not been long but he was already far ahead and left them a distance behind.
"Little Chen, what should we do with these people?" Ye Changxuan asked. As the topic came back on track, they felt their heads ache again. These Nanman Kingdom people dressed like they were from the Nanman Kingdom military. If someone had tracked these savages and found that they died here, it might cause trouble for the House of Ye.
They looked at Ye Chen, waiting for his opinion. They did not know when it began, but Ye Chen's position in their minds had quietly changed. Now, when Ye Changxuan, Ye Zhantian, and the others wanted to make a decision, they would also consult Ye Chen's opinion.
Several clansmen brought the tightly bound Lao Guzhuo and Tuoba Yu out. Of the four in the castle, three had died, and the remaining one was severely injured. They should be dead meat.
"Kill me and chop me into pieces if you want to but I'll never kneel!" Lao Guzhuo struggled against the clansmen beside him and stood up ferociously, his eyes blazing.
A few clansmen were about to push Lao Guzhuo forcibly but stopped when Ye Chen waved his hand. Ye Chen glanced at Lao Guzhuo. He did not expect this man to have such a backbone.

"What's your name?" Ye Chen asked Lao Guzhuo.
Ye Changxuan's eyes brightened at Ye Chen's words, and he exclaimed, "Brilliant!"
The others also understood with just this little hint. Big Man Lei had dug his own grave by breaking into Ye Castle and had no one to blame but himself. These people had no affection for each other. The House of Ye had killed six of them but Lao Guzhuo did not harbor much hatred for the House of Ye. The person Lao Guzhuo resented the most should be the Big Man Lei who had abandoned him at his most dangerous moment. By releasing Lao Guzhuo, he would bite Big Man Lei like a dog bit another dog. Was this not ingenious?
Ye Zhantian and the others nodded slightly. Little Chen's decision was indeed well thought out.
The remaining people had been killed by the House of Ye. They had come to ma.s.sacre the House of Ye without any provocation, and were most likely people who had killed others as if they were ants. People like them were better off dead!
Ye Chen looked to the distance and sighed. This world was too chaotic. Without enough strength, one would not even be able to protect oneself. If Ye Castle's strength had not been increased, even if the Second-Rank Prince of Donglin did not bother the House of Ye, just these Nanman Kingdom savages would be enough to exterminate the House of Ye. It would be fine if the Nanman Kingdom did not pursue the deaths of these savages but if they did, it might be traced back to the House of Ye. A clan must never go against an entire kingdom. Thinking about this, Ye Chen had a sense of urgency to get stronger.
After level advancement, it became more difficult to progress further. Following several days of consideration, Ye Chen made up his mind to go to the Sunken Jade Tower. Perhaps he would find a way to improve his strength in the Sunken Jade Tower. If he could break through Tenth Level, he would have enough strength to deal with trouble if they arose.
After things had settled down, Ye Castle also became tranquil. However, they were still on their guard. When news had spread that Lianyun Mountain's Sunken Jade Tower was about to open, at least a dozen groups of people would be walking down the little path outside Ye Castle, and each group was comprised of at least ten people, all Ninth Level and above. These people had come from all around the Xiwu Empire, and there were even people from other countries.
These Ninth Level combatants went deep into the Lianyun Mountains to search for the Sunken Jade Tower's entrance. It was said that every time the Sunken Jade Tower opened, the location of the entrance would change.
