Chapter 1168: Accusation
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Although the flash of greed in Zhou Li’s eyes disappeared as soon as it appeared, Duan Ling Tian did not miss it since he was observant.
“No more.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head at Zhou Li’s question. “I found these two items in a ruins… I looked everywhere back then but didn’t find anything else.”
“Do you mean… You only have one Spirit Weapon and one medicinal pill?” He asked Duan Ling Tian. He looked into his eyes while he thought about the grade one Spirit Sword and grade one Life Recovery Pill in his hands.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded stiffly. However, there was a subtle smirk on the edge of his lips.
As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, a quaint copper mirror appeared in Zhou Li’s hand. He immediately pointed it at Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu.
‘Demon Revelation Mirror!’ Duan Ling Tian could tell with just a glance that the copper mirror in Zhou Li’s hand was not a normal mirror. It was a mirror that showed a demon’s true form.
Soon after, Zhou Li looked at the copper mirror. A charming smile appeared on his face when he saw the human man and woman reflected in the mirror.
‘They’re not demons!’ He was finally certain the young couple before his eyes were not demons but humans.
One of them was approximately 25 years old while the other was in her early 20s.
Such humans would not have outstanding abilities no matter how talented and how powerful their comprehension was.
“Vice manager Zhou Li!” Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes when Zhou Li was putting the Demon Revelation Mirror away. His tone was much colder now. “Don’t you think it’s impolite to point the Demon Revelation Mirror at someone?”
The Demon Revelation Mirror was not rare on Cloud Continent even though it was very useful.
It could discern if someone was a demon or not.
If a demon looked into the mirror, the mirror would show its true form.
No one would randomly point a Demon Revelation Mirror at someone else since it was considered rude.
“Impolite?” Zhou Li was stunned when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words before a grin formed on his face. “Do I need to be polite when talking to frauds like both of you?”
“Frauds?” Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes when he heard Zhou Li’s words.
Meanwhile, Feng Tian Wu who stood next to Duan Ling Tian was emitting a terrifyingly cold aura. Her beautiful face had also turned colder.
Even the lady next to Zhou Li was surprised when Zhou Li lifted his arm and put the grade one Spirit Sword and grade one Life Recovery Pill in his hand away in his Spatial Ring.
“If both of you want to live… Run as far as you can!” Zhou Li shouted. His eyes revealed killing intent as he looked at Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu.
It was obvious that Zhou Li was robbing Duan Ling Tian’s grade one Spirit Weapon and grade one Life Recovery Pill in broad daylight.
The reason he pointed the Demon Revelation Mirror at Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu earlier was to make sure both of them were not demons. Since they were not demons, they were harmless.
Now he could openly steal the items they were planning to auction off as though it was a matter of course!
Zhou Li ignored Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu after he was done speaking. He looked at the lady who was standing next to him and calmly said, “Follow me.”
The lady turned a little pale when she heard that, but she obediently followed Zhou Li into the auction fair’s backstage.
“I want him dead!” Feng Tian Wu said coldly and took a step forward. She was ready to chase after him.
“You’re no match for him.” Duan Ling Tian extended his arm and grabbed Feng Tian Wu’s hand to stop her.
“It’s not difficult to make someone return something that belongs to me, Duan Ling Tian,” Duan Ling Tian mumbled softly as his eyes gleamed. His voice was cold. Feng Tian Wu turned around to look at him.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian took the lead and enter the auction fair’s backstage.
Feng Tian Wu followed behind him.
At this time, both of them were instantly thrust into the limelight since it was obvious they were outsiders. They were strangers to the people at the Zhou Clan’s auction fair.
“Who are you?” Many people asked while frowning.
“Who are we?” Duan Ling Tian smirked. His eyes were trained on Zhou Li who was standing at the side, and he calmly said, “You’ll have to ask vice manager Zhou Li about this.”
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Zhou Li instantly became the center of attention.
Soon after, a dignified old man in silver robe took a step forward and looked at Zhou Li. He looked annoyed and asked Zhou Li with a frown, “What’s happening, Zhou Li?”
“Manager,” Zhou Li did not dare to delay as he greeted the silver-robed old man respectfully.
The silver-robed old man was the manager of the Zhou Clan’s auction fair.
After greeting the silver-robed old man, Zhou Li looked at Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu calmly and said, “They’re just frauds. I’ll get rid of them right away!” He did not seem surprised at Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu’s appearance.
Zhou Li stared at them coldly and said slowly, “I wanted to let both of you go… Since you’re asking for death, I’ll fulfill your wish!” His voice revealed a hint of killing intent.
“Deal with this quickly… The auction will begin in half an hour. Don’t complicate the situation,” the silver-robed old man said as he glanced at Zhou Li.
“Yes,” Zhou Li responded immediately and looked at Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu. His eyes were filled with killing intent.
“If the Zhou Clan doesn’t hand over my things today and give me a reasonable answer… Don’t even think about having this auction ever again at the Zhou Clan’s Auction Square.” Duan Ling Tian looked calm as he faced a ferocious-looking Zhou Li. However, his voice was filled with arrogance, and he did not bother to tone it down at all.
Duan Ling Tian’s words reverberated in the air.
The faces of everyone in the auction fair’s backstage, including silver-robed old man, changed immediately. They were glaring furiously at Duan Ling Tian.
That was a naked threat!
This purple-clad young man was threatening their Zhou Clan’s auction fair and their Zhou Clan!
“You’re dead, brat!” Zhou Li’s face turned somber as the killing intent in his eyes intensified. He was getting ready to attack Duan Ling Tian as he moved.
However, a silhouette appeared out of thin air before Duan Ling Tian and blocked Zhou Li’s way. He stopped moving immediately. “Manager, what are you doing?”
A silver silhouette was standing before Duan Ling Tian at the moment. It was the Zhou Clan’s auction fair’s manager, the silver-robed old man.
He looked at Duan Ling Tian and questioned in his deep voice, “Are you threatening our Zhou Clan?”
“You can say that,” Duan Ling Tian casually replied the silver-robed old man. He did not seem worried about what the Zhou Clan might do to him.
“You’re very daring,” the silver-robed old man said.
“I don’t think I’m daring… I’m trying to be reasonable. I believe the Zhou Clan is a righteous clan and will not harbor a parasite in the clan,” Duan Ling Tian said as he looked pointedly at Zhou Li. It was obvious who he was talking about.
“What nonsense are you spewing!” Zhou Li looked at Duan Ling Tian. A hint of panic flashed in his eyes, and he was enraged. “How dare you say you’re trying to be reasonable when you’re trying to cheat our Zhou Clan’s auction fair?”
Zhou Li looked at the silver-robed old man again as he said, “Manager, you should get ready for the auction. Let me handle this small matter… I’ll get rid of them right away,” Zhou Li said as he looked at Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu. It was as though he was looking at two dead people.
“There’s no rush. I want to know what happened exactly,” the silver-robed old man said as he looked at Zhou Li.
Zhou Li heard his words and looked at a lady standing in the distance. It was the lady who brought Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu in. “You! Come over here! Tell the manager what happened.”
The lady’s expression changed slightly when she heard Zhou Li’s words. However, she quickly unclenched her teeth and walked toward him.
“Hmm?” The silver-robed old man frowned. He did not understand what was happening.
“Manager, she’s the one who brought them in… It’s better if I let her tell you about the details of what happened,” Zhou Li explained.
The silver-robed old man nodded and looked at the lady before him. “Tell me.”
“Yes, Manager.” It was obvious that the lady felt a little uneasy facing the old man. She said slowly, “Manager, these two guests said they have two items that they would like to auction off earlier…”
“I told them unless they have something that’s worthy of being in the finale, we don’t allow anyone to enter our Zhou Clan’s auction fair’s backstage.” The lady looked at the man and woman who were coldly staring at her when she spoke. There was a sense of guilt and helplessness in the depth of her eyes.
At that same time, the lady spoke to Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu via Voice Transmission, “I’m sorry, sir and madam… There’s nothing else I can do! Vice manager Zhou Liu said if I don’t do as I’m told, not only will he kill me, but he’ll kill my family as well.”
Feng Tian Wu’s face turned somber. The killing intent in her eyes intensified when she looked at Zhou Li again.
Although Duan Ling Tian remained calm outwardly, a hint of coldness flashed in the depth of his eyes.
Not only did Zhou Li rob him of his things, but he even threatened a weak lady using such a dirty tactic.
He had already sentenced Zhou Li to death in his heart.
He would not be able to let this go if Zhou Li did not die!
“These two guests said the items they want to put up for auction are treasures that are worthy of being in the finale… So I brought them to the auction area and got vice manager Zhou Li to verify it,” the lady continued to speak.
“When vice manager Zhou Li met them and asked them to bring out the items they want to put up for auction, they hesitated and didn’t bring out anything in the end.”
“Vice manager Zhou Li was furious because of that. He condemned them and said they’re trying to cheat our Zhou Clan’s auction fair and asked them to leave! Who knew they would turn around and accuse vice manager Zhou Li of taking their things and chased after him backstage…”
