"I'm so glad you're alive! I thought that the most exceptional disciple the Body Sect had seen in over 1,000 years had passed away, just like that!"
Aside from Yali and Gu Yue, the latter of whom was suffering from amnesia, everyone else naturally recognized Mu Ye, and all of them stepped forward to extend respectful salutes.
"Alright, come into the bunker first."
This stone bunker was very easy to overlook even by satellites as it was blended in extremely well with the mountains around it. However, after walking into the bunker, the interior was completely different.
The rear section of the bunker led straight into a cavernous space within the mountain behind it, and inside that space were a dozen or so powerful Soul Masters. It was quite apparent from some of their bodily traits that all of them were Body Sect Soul Masters.
"Teacher, how is my uncle-teacher right now?" Tang Wulin asked.
Mu Ye replied, "His condition is stable, but he's not getting any better. The one who attacked him was an Evil Soul Master who was very close to a Limit Douluo, and if it weren't for your uncle-teacher's suit of four-word battle armor, he'd most likely be dead right now.

Zhen Hua's suit of battle armor has sealed off many of the important areas of his body to prevent the malicious spirit from spreading, but it's too powerful for us to completely eradicate. We've already tried many ways to get rid of it, but the malicious spirit almost infiltrated our bodies in the process, so we had no choice but to give up. The power of his four-word battle armor can only maintain this strained state of equilibrium for now, but it's really hard to say how long he'll be able to last like this."
Yali made her way over to Zhen Hua's bedside, and a hint of life finally returned to her eyes at the sight of the green energy flowing over Zhen Hua's face. A series of soul rings began to slowly rise up from beneath her feet, and as her holy aura gradually became stronger, the siniste
