Chapter 1420: Justice
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In the end, Fang Hui knew it was hopeless for him to seek revenge. After he became an inner court disciple, he had requested to be dispatched as an outer court deacon to manage Mound Hill City and become the City Governor of Mound Hill City.
Ten years ago, Liu Huan had brought Zhou Qi here and refreshed his memory that was already covered in dust, causing him to be overwhelmed with grief and rage.
However, what could he do?
He could not even defeat the other party.
His status was far from comparable to the other party.
Due to this reason, he could only swallow the humiliation and endure it.
“I know I don’t have a chance in seeking revenge, and I’ve even thought about committing suicide. However, in the end, I still decided to live on! My life is destined to be incomparable to Liu Huan, but it doesn’t mean the disciples I train will be incomparable to the disciples Liu Huan trains!” Fang Hui said through clenched teeth.
His eyes were red with hatred.
Naturally, there was one thing he left unsaid. That was he wished his disciples would seek revenge for him. Even if Liu Huan was not killed, he would be satisfied as long as he was taught a lesson.
It was because of this obsession that he managed to drag out his ignoble existence until now.
It must be said that Fang Hui’s words struck Duan Ling Tian and the other three like a bolt of lightning when they heard it.
It did not cross their minds that their teacher and master would have such an unbearable past.
They could feel the pain, anger, helplessness, exasperation, and other emotions in his voice… They could understand all of these feelings he felt.
“The reason I disclose this to all of you is mainly to tell you one thing… Even after all of you have entered the Moon Illumination Sect and become an outer court disciple, you will most likely be oppressed by Liu Huan’s people.” Fang Hui looked at Duan Ling Tian and the other three solemnly. “Right now, you can consider if you still want to join the entrance assessment for Moon Illumination Sect and enter the sect or not.”
The moment Fang Hui’s words left his mouth, Duan Ling Tian and the other three frowned immediately.
“Don’t tell me they even dare to kill us?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“They won’t dare to kill you in the sect no matter! Although there are several secluded places, they are enveloped by several Saint Stage powerhouses’ Divine Consciousness… Anybody who kills will be severely punished by the sect!” Fang Hui explained, “Naturally if there are people who have unresolvable enmity with each other in the sect, they can apply for a Death Duel. That way, they won’t be considered as breaking the sect’s rule and won’t be punished for killing too.”
“In other words, they’ll only look for trouble with us at most and won’t dare to kill us?” Xiong Hu asked.
“Yes, you can say that.” Fang Hui nodded.
“Teacher, what’s Divine Consciousness?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
“The Divine Consciousness can only be formed by Saint Stage powerhouses. It can be considered as a type of Spiritual Energy… The Saint Stage powerhouses’ Divine Consciousness can envelop and monitor a vast area,” Fang Hui said, “You’ll eventually learn about this when you break through to the Saint Stage later.”
Upon hearing Fang Hui’s words, Duan Ling Tian did not have any thoughts, but Ling Yun, Xiong Hu, and Jin Yuan Bao were taken aback.
From Master’s words, was he implying this Senior Brother Duan had the potential to break through to the Saint Stage?
“With your Senior Brother Duan’s innate talent, it’s just a matter of time before he breaks through to the Saint Stage if he doesn’t suddenly die,” Fang Hui explained as though he could see through Ling Yun and the other two’s shock.
His confidence toward Duan Ling Tian could be heard from his words.
“I’ll give you one month to consider… I won’t blame you if you decide not to enter the Moon Illumination Sect. However, all of you need to be mentally prepared if you decide to enter,” Fang Hui continued to add,” Since all of you will be entering the sect through my recommendation, it’ll be equivalent to having the label of Mound Hill City — my label — on you.”
When Fang Hui reached the end of his sentence, his face was solemn.
Apart from Duan Ling Tian, Ling Yun, Xiong Hu, and Jin Yuan Bao nodded their heads solemnly.
As for Duan Ling Tian, when he heard from Fang Hui that Liu Huan and his disciples were not allowed to kill anybody in within the sect’s estate, he had already made up his mind — he would enter the Moon Illumination Sect!
Although he would be oppressed, it was not to the point of death.
Motivation came from pressure.
Duan Ling Tian had always believed in this.
‘I’ll make that Liu Huan and his disciple my touchstone then,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as his eyes shone brightly.
As though recalling something, Fang Hui gave a long sigh before he turned to leave the front courtyard.
Duan Ling Tian at him and found his silhouette shrouded in despair. “Looks like Su Qi’s betrayal has dealt a big impact on Teacher.”
Su Qi’s betrayal was out of Duan Ling Tian’s expectation too.
Although he did not interact much with Su Qi, he did not think he was someone who was afraid of death and preferred to live a life of dishonor.
“It appears that I’m wrong in my judgment this time.” Duan Ling Tian sighed, but his eyes gleamed coldly. “Su Qi, I’ll show you that even though you’ve decided to rely on Liu Huan, you’ll still be beneath me!”
Duan Ling Tian had genuinely regarded Fang Hui as his teacher so he could also feel his humiliation.
“That Liu Huan and his disciple…” The moment Duan Ling Tian thought of this, the cold gleam in his eyes shone even brighter.
After taking a deep breath to suppress his anger, Duan Ling Tian returned to his room to cultivate. He took out the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda and entered the second level.
It was less than six months before he would enter the Moon Illumination Sect.
‘I hope I’ll successfully break through to the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage before I enter the Moon Illumination Sect,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
When he was cultivating in the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda on the third day, he was awakened by a series of knocks on the door… Only one day had gone by outside.
“Teacher?” Opening the room door, Duan Ling Tian was surprised when he saw Fang Hui.
“Duan Ling Tian, have you thought about whether you’ll enter the Moon Illumination Sect or not?” Fang Hui asked.
Duan Ling Tian was shocked.
Although he had already made up his mind, he could not help but feel astonished that Fang Hui would come to his door to inquire about it the next day. Did he not say he would give them one month to consider?
“Since there’s no life-or-death danger, there’s nothing that I need to be afraid of.” Duan Ling Tian smiled. He confirmed his intention of joining the Moon Illumination Sect with his words.
“It’s only in the sect’s estate that there’s no life-or-death danger,” Fang Hui said solemnly, “If it’s outside the sect’s estate, there’s no guarantee at all… You must think carefully about this.”
If someone was killed outside the sect’s estate, there was no guarantee they could find the culprit.
“If I’m killed outside the sect’s estate, then that just means I’m the useless one.” Duan Ling Tian smiled nonchalantly as his eyes flashed.
“I didn’t misjudge your strength.” Fang Hui looked at Duan Ling Tian intently before he took out a Spatial Ring and passed it to him. “Do your best in cultivating before you head to the Moon Illumination Sect’s entrance exam.”
“This is…?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned by Fang Hui’s action.
“There’s the Saint Grade Pill, the Sensory Pills inside it. Not only that, but it also contains some Saint Stones that will be helpful to your cultivation.” After Fang Hui had finished his sentence, without waiting for Duan Ling Tian’s assent, he pushed the ring into Duan Ling Tian’s hand. Then, he turned around to leave so he could leave him to his cultivation.
Looking at Fang Hui’s bleak silhouette that was slowly disappearing, a surge of flame rose up in Duan Ling Tian’s heart. He made a promise as he muttered to himself, “Teacher, one day, I’ll make sure justice is served, and they’ll pay for what they have done to you!”
This was his promise to Fang Hui!
Although his voice was not loud, it still clearly heard by Fang Hui.
Fang Hui’s body paused for a moment. After a slight tremble, he continued to walk forward.
“I believe in you,” Fang Hui said hoarsely. His words were filled with emotions.
The reason he, Fang Hui, dragged out his ignoble existence until today was to make sure justice would be served.
At that time, he could not make Liu Huan pay for it when he kidnapped his newlywed wife and caused her death.
Until now, justice was still not served.
He had mass recruited young talents because he had pinned his hope on these young talents, hoping they could help him get the justice that he deserved.
Now that someone told him that they would get him his justice, how could he not feel moved? Especially when that person had a very high likelihood of keeping his promise.
However, Fang Hui’s mood was still complicated.
When he had taken Su Qi in as his disciple, he had pinned all of his hopes on Su Qi.
As he watched Su Qi grow day by day, he had even seen a sliver of hope.
In his opinion, with Su Qi’s talent, after he entered the Moon Illumination Sect, as long as he continued to grow, he would definitely be able to fulfill his wish and seek justice for him so that his wife could finally smile in the nether world.
However, who would have thought the person whom he had pinned his hopes on would actually betray him.
He was happy that Duan Ling Tian was here.
In his opinion, Duan Ling Tian was like a light in the dark, guiding him to move forward… In other words, Duan Ling Tian was his last hope.
Duan Ling Tian did not let him down either.
“Don’t tell me it’s true that I can’t sell the cow and drink the milk too?” Fang Hui’s heart was filled with bitterness. Whether it was Duan Ling Tian or Su Qi, he had hoped both of them would help him get justice when they get stronger.
However, it seemed like he could not have both the cow and the milk, he had lost Su Qi.
Closing the door properly, Duan Ling Tian re-entered the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
“Sensory Pill!” He did not lack Saint Stones, but he did indeed lack the Saint Grade Pills, Sensory Pills.
“This is a Two Star Sensory Pill… Wait… This is a Three Star Sensory Pill?” Duan Ling Tian performed Ownership Claim on the Spatial Ring that Fang Hui had given him. When he was about to take the Sensory Pill to aid him in his cultivation, he noticed not only were there Two Star Sensory Pills inside, but some of them were Three Star Sensory Pills.
Although they were both Saint Grade Pills, just the effectiveness of the Three Star Sensory Pill alone was far greater than a Two Star Sensory Pill.
“It’s time for me to change my Spatial Ring too.” The moment he remembered his Spatial Ring was the one he made for himself previously, Duan Ling Tian proceeded to use the Spatial Ring Fang Hui had given him after he compared both of them.
Currently, he could not upgrade his Spatial Ring because he could no longer form the Weapon Fire.
The Spatial Ring Fang Hui had given him had a higher grade than all of the Spatial Rings he had. It had already reached the Human Rank Prominent Saint Weapon so he changed his ring without any hesitation.
“The Two Star Sensory Pill is already so effective. I’m sure the Three Star Sensory Pill is even more powerful!” Duan Ling Tian had experienced the Two Stars Sensory Pill’s benefits previously when he was in the process of breaking through to the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage so he was looking forward to using the Three Stars Sensory Pill.
