“Are you going to try to stop me, Callan?” Tobias looked at Callan, who had suddenly appeared before him.
He narrowed his eyes, and said, “If that’s the case, I’ll take you out first. I’d like to see how far you’ve cultivated the Decimation of Immortality.”
With one hand behind his back, Callan made a taunting gesture with his other hand and said calmly, “You can strike.”
At that moment, James slowly got up.
“Callan, this is a family matter. You don’t need to interfere…”
Callan turned around and looked at James worriedly.
He asked, “James, what about your condition?”
James gently dismissed his worries with a wave and said, “I’m alright.”
“Didn’t he drain you of your True Energy?”
James smiled mysteriously and said, “Who told you one can’t recover their strength after having their True Energy taken away from them?”
Seeing the confident smile on James’ face, Callan heaved a sigh of relief. He walked away and stood some distance from the battlefield, keeping his eyes on Tobias and James.
James stood on the top of the mountain serenely.
Meanwhile, Tobias was seething inside. He did not expect James to appear on the mountain.
“Die!” Tobias bellowed and drew the long sword on his back.
“How dare you lay a hand on my man?!”
As soon as Tobias unsheathed his sword, a feminine shout boomed around the mountain.
The ground trembled, and the entire Mt. Thunder Pass felt like it was about to collapse as the sound echoed around them.
The onlookers at Mt. Thunder Pass struggled to keep their balance. Those with a weaker cultivation base fell to the ground.
“W-What strong energy!”
Many were shocked.
Following the sound, a figure sped toward them from a distance.
The person descended from the sky and firmly landed on Mt. Thunder Pass. The woman wore a black dress and held a long black sword in her hand. Her long black hair had already turned white.
It was none other than Thea.
After Thea finished her closed-door meditation, she learned that her identity had been exposed.
This was why she decided to show up without her mask and reveal her identity. Her appearance caused an instant uproar.
“It’s really Thea!”
“The rumors were true. Celestial Sect’s leader is actually Thea Callahan!”
“Tsk, tsk! I never expected the infamous leader of Celestial Sect to be James’ woman.”
Everyone was surprised to see the face of the Celestial Sect’s leader with their own eyes.
Even Jackson and Delainey were shocked.
“Thea?” Callan was also shocked by Thea’s appearance.
He murmured thoughtfully, “She hid her talents well. Who would’ve thought the lady at James’ side was one of the strongest martial artists in the world? Who could’ve guessed that the leader of the Celestial Sect that almost completely dominated the ancient martial world was Thea?”
James looked at Thea, who had appeared. He felt an intense regret the moment her white hair caught his eye.
She was a delicate woman but was forced to endure so many hardships.
“Thea,” he called out to her.
Thea turned around and looked at James. Seeing that he was safe and sound, tears rolled down her face.
She found a pile of butchered limbs in his bed and thought James was dead. She lost all reason at that moment and was resolved to kill.
The Spirit Turtle’s blood stirred up within her and she suffered an Energy Deviation.
After returning to Celestial Sect’s headquarters, she began to absorb the power of the Spirit Turtle’s blood. When she was close to absorbing all of it, she sent a letter of challenge to Tobias.
She did not know who had killed James, but she knew that Tobias had stolen James’ True Energy. Thea wanted to avenge James.
She would start with Tobias, then set her sights on Lucjan. To her, anyone who had stood against James had to die. However, James appeared in front of her. He was unharmed, hale, and healthy.
“Honey, let me first dispose of Tobias!” Thea was slightly choked up at their reunion.
Immediately, she pulled out the Malevolent Sword.
The sword gleamed dangerously, and a gush of strong energy emitted from it instantly.
James slowly walked toward Thea and convinced her. “That won’t be necessary. I’ll do it myself.”
