Chapter 357: Heaven Encompassing Net
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Lord Xia Dou.” Shi Li had a bitter expression. “I sent some people to the Seven Star Sword Sect to find out about him. One year ago, Duan Ling Tian left the Seven Star Sword Sect and hasn’t returned since.”
The Vice President of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Jade Magnolia Trading Company.
A sixth level Void Prying Stage existence.
Even if he was the Patriarch of the Shi Clan, he was only a Void Prying Stage expert, a first level Void Prying Stage…
“If Shi Hao wasn’t killed by Duan Ling Tian, then he would have surely been able to become the Shi Clan’s second Void Prying Stage expert with his natural talent!” As he thought up to this point, Shi Li’s face sank.
“You told me this yesterday.” Xia Dou swept Shi Li with an indifferent gaze. “Have you found out where he went?”
Shi Li shook his head. “Not for now. Don’t worry Lord Xia Dou, Duan Ling Tian also crippled the cultivation of my daughter and killed my son… I, Shi Li, am irreconcilable enemies with him! So long as I have news about him, I would surely notify Lord Xia Dou at the first possible moment!”
Xia Dou’s arrival had allowed Shi Li to see hope for taking revenge.
In the past, although he knew that his son, Shi Hao, was killed Duan Ling Tian, but he didn’t dare act rashly.
Because Duan Ling Tian was an outstanding disciple of the Seven Star Sword Sect. The Shi Clan wouldn’t allow him to take a risk for a personal enmity, and draw calamity for the Shi Clan…
However, some time ago, this Vice President of the Jade Magnolia Trading Company, Xia Dou, had come over in a threatening manner with a drawing in hand, and this picture allowed him to see hope.
His daughter Shi Yan recognized it with a glance, the young man within the drawing Xia Dou possessed was precisely Duan Ling Tian!
In this way, he invited Xia Dou into the Shi Clan Estate.
To plan their vengeance together!
“Duan Ling Tian, it’s you who deserve death… You actually dared to kill Lord Xia Dou’s only son!” Cold lights flickered within Shi Li’s eyes, and a small sneer appeared on the corners of his mouth.
“Patriarch, Patriarch!” Right at this moment, a figure that was in a hurry charged into the Audience Hall before reporting his arrival.
Xia Dou frowned when he saw the Shi Clan disciple directly charge in, and he grunted coldly. “Patriarch Shi Li, looks like your Shi Clan’s rules are nothing much… Could it be that this Shi Clan Audience Hall can be casually entered by anyone?”
Shi Li was slightly embarrassed and looked at the Shi Clan disciple as he asked in a low voice. “Why are you in such a hurry?”
“Patriarch.” The Shi Clan disciple said excitedly, “The person in the drawing has appeared!”
The instant Shi Li’s pupils constricted, Xia Dou sat beside him and had just picked up a tea cup to take a sip. Xia Dou’s body trembled and the teacup in his hand was directly smashed into pieces by his grip.
Xia Dou stood up and looked at the Shi Clan disciple as he shouted. “You said the person in the drawing has appeared?”
The Shi Clan disciple hurriedly nodded. “Yes, I saw him enter the city with my own two eyes.”
Meanwhile, numerous figures had flashed into the Audience Hall.
“My cousin brother noticed that young man in the drawing at the Tranquil Elegance Restaurant.”
“My friend noticed him as well.”
“I too saw him with my own two eyes.”
These Shi Clan disciples were similarly providing information like the Shi Clan disciple before him.
“Good, good!” Xia Dou laughed heartily, and the imposing manner on his body surged. Although he didn’t stretch it out intentionally, but it still caused the expressions of the Shi Clan disciples that were present to go ghastly pale, and their bodies shivered.
“Guang, father will go take revenge for you now!” Xia Dou’s voice was like a thunderclap, shocking the Shi Clan Audience Hall to the point it seemed as if it swayed.
After eating their fill, Duan Ling Tian’s group of four left the restaurant then spurred their horses out of Black Bamboo City.
On the way, Duan Ling Tian’s brows knit.
His Spiritual Force told him that there were currently numerous people who were spying on him from the shadows and were following him.
Zhang Shou Yong looked at Duan Ling Tian as he lightly smiled and said, “Brother Ling Tian, the seven great sword peaks of the Seven Star Sword Sect are like thunder piercing the ear to me as well… I and Qiong will send you to the Seven Star Sword Sect and also look at the elegant appearance of the seven great sword peaks on the way, how about it?”
“Okay.” Duan Ling Tian nodded and lightly smiled, and his smile contained gratitude mixed within.
He knew in his heart that Zhang Shou Yong made such a decision because Zhang Shou Yong had surely noticed the people following him.
“Then let’s go slowly, I still want to chat with Big Sister Wang Qiong. We don’t know when we’ll meet again.” Li Fei’s beautiful eyes flashed and it suffused with a sheen of reluctance as she suggested.
Duan Ling Tian and Zhang Shou Yong nodded.
Their group of four, two Ferghana Horses, walked out of Black Bamboo City and headed directly towards the Seven Star Sword Sect…
Because of Li Fei’s suggestion, Duan Ling Tian and Zhang Shou Yong had both decreased their speeds and didn’t spur their horses into a gallop.
Before they parted, Li Fei and Wang Qiong chatted happily to their hearts content.
Black Bamboo City wasn’t far from the Seven Star Sword Sect, and even when they slowed down, Duan Ling Tian’s group of four had already travelled halfway there after half an hour.
“The Seven Star Sword Sect really does deserve its reputation!” Zhang Shou Yong gazed at the seven sword peaks that stood in the distance and he couldn’t help but praise them.
“I heard a long time ago that the Seven Star Sword Sect possessed seven great sword peaks, and it’s one of the great wonders of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom. Now that I’ve seen it today, it truly does deserve its reputation.” Wang Qiong deeply agreed and nodded.
Perhaps, any one of the peaks of the seven great sword peaks were inferior to the Solitary Summit that was nearby the Ancient City of Everlast.
However, when the seven great sword peaks were gathered together and stood there, it gave people a shocking sight to behold…
The seven great sword peaks were like seven sharp swords that shot up into the heavens!
As if it wanted to pierce seven holes through the heavens.
Right at this moment.
Thump! Thump! Thump! Thump! Thump!
A string of dense sounds of horse hooves hitting the group interrupted the paid of husband and wife who were enjoying the sight of the seven great sword peaks.
Zhang Shou Yong’s face sank as cold lights flickered in his eyes.
A trace of displeasure arose on Wang Qiong’s beautiful face as well.
When Duan Ling Tian and Zhang Shou Yong turned their horses around, they could see over ten sturdy horses dashing over with three Ferghana Horses in the lead, and the galloped straight towards the location of Duan Ling Tian’s group.
In next to no time, the people who sat on the 10 over sturdy horses had surrounded Duan Ling Tian’s group of four, as if they’d transformed into a heaven encompassing net, causing Duan Ling Tian’s group to have nowhere to escape.
“Shi Yan!” Li Fei’s sharp eyes noticed the woman by the dignified middle aged man’s side with a single glance.
The woman had distorted and hideous features, and her pair of triangular eyes flickered with a gloomy sheen…
It was precisely the formed Alkaid Peak disciple, Shi Yan!
The Shi Yan that was crippled by Duan Ling Tian.
The Shi Yan that was the younger sister of the formed number one disciple in the outer court, Shi Hao.
“Bi**h!” Shi Yan gazed at Li Fei and her triangular eyes emitted a frightful icy coldness. “Today, you and your man will die… You crippled my cultivation and killed my brother, none of you will be able to escape today!” Shi Yao’s voice was filled with gloominess.
Wang Qiong’s beautiful face went grim when she heard Shi Yan insult Li Fei and she said in a low voice, “Watch your words!”
“What does me insulting this bi**h have to do with you?” Shi Yao coldly swept Wang Qiong with her gaze, then grunted. “Today, you can only blame yourself and your man for being unfortunate to actually be together with these two jinxes… You two are bound to be implicated by them.”
Zhang Shou Yong who sat behind Wang Qiong has a calm expression as he asked indifferently. “What you mean is you want to kill all four of us?”
Right when Shi Yan intended to speak.
“Exactly, all three of you will die with Duan Ling Tian today!” An aged voice sounded out, and extreme coldness and indifference was mixed within the voice. It was the embroidered clothed old man on the Ferghana Horse that spoke.
The current group of people seemed to be following the lead of this old man.
“This person…” Duan Ling Tian frowned as he gazed at the old man in embroidered clothes. He kept having the feeling that the old man was slightly familiar, but he could be sure that he’d never seen the old man before.
If he’d met the old man before, it would be impossible that he didn’t have an impression of the old man at all.
Relying on his formidable Spiritual Force and the lifetime experience of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that the old man’s cultivation ought to be at the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage.
Zhang Shou Yong’s calm expression slightly sank when he heard the old man.
A Void Prying Stage martial artist dared talk nonsense before him?
“Duan Ling Tian!” Meanwhile, the dignified middle aged man beside Shi Yan glared angrily at Duan Ling Tian as he said coldly, “First, you crippled my daughter’s cultivation, and later on you even killed my son, Shi Hao… Today, I, Shi Li, will make your blood splatter on the ground!”
“You’re Shi Hao’s father?” Duan Ling Tian glanced at the dignified middle aged man with an indifferent gaze, then his gaze descended onto the old man in embroidered clothes. “You’re also taking revenge for Shi Hao?”
The old man in embroidered clothes hadn’t even opened his mouth was Shi Li had already sneered and said, “Duan Ling Tian, this is Lord Xia Dou, and he’d the Vice President of the Jade Magnolia Trading Company… I truly never expected that you actually dared kill the son of Lord Xia Dou, simply audacious!”
Jade Magnolia Trading Company’s Vice President?
Duan Ling Tian frowned, he seemed to have heard of this somewhere.
“Scoundrel, Black Wind City.” Li Fei reminded.
Duan Ling Tian came to a sudden understanding as he recalled what happened there.
That day, he’d only just left the Crimson Sky Kingdom, and when he passed the Black Wind City that was at the border between the Crimson Sky Kingdom and the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, he’d participated in an auction.
After the auction ended, there was someone who coveted the infant Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse he’d won in the auction.
Later on, that person and the two old men by that person’s side were killed by Xiong Quan.
That person seemed to be the person in-charge of the Jade Magnolia Trading Company’s branch in Black Wind City.
“You’re Xia Guang’s father?” Duan Ling Tian looked at the old man in embroidered clothes, as he still clearly remembered the name from that day.
“Exactly, I’m Xia Guang’s father, Xia Dou!” Xia Dou’s gaze was incomparably icy cold and contained boundless killing intent. “Looks like you still remember my son you killed… I’ve been looking for you for an entire year and finally found a lead in Black Bamboo City! Looks like even the heavens want to allow me to take revenge for my son.” As he finished speaking, Xia Dou’s face flushed red and he was extremely excited.
He stared at Duan Ling Tian with a gaze that was as if he was looking at a dead man.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Xia Dou as he asked in a low voice. “Xia Dou, you’re the Vice President of the Jade Magnolia Trading Company in any case. Could it be that you don’t want to know why I killed your son that day?”
That day, if it wasn’t for Xia Guang coveting the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse in his possession and colluding with the people from the Ma Clan Auction House, wanting to kill them and seize the infant Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse, he wouldn’t have made Xiong Quan kill Xia Guang.
As far as he was concerned, Xia Guang brought all this onto himself.
Xia Guang deserved death!
