Chapter 359: Annihilated
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Xia Dou took a deep breath, then looked at Zhang Shou Yong and asked. “Sir… Who exactly are you?”
Subsequently, he suppressed the fear within his heart as he slowly said, “Perhaps, the Clan or Sect that you’re from has some friendly relationship with my Jade Magnolia Trading Company?” The way he spoke contained a slight sense of yielding.
“Jade Magnolia Trading Company?” The corners of Zhang Shou Yong’s mouth held a trace of disdain as he said indifferently, “I’m sorry, but I’ve never heard of it.”
Never heard of it?
Xia Dou’s face instantly flushed red, as if his throat was choked by someone.
He naturally thought that Zhang Shou Yong had said this intentionally.
Although the Jade Magnolia Trading Company couldn’t be considered the top trading company within the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, it was still known far and wide…
Duan Ling Tian, however, wasn’t surprised.
According to his knowledge, although Zhang Shou Yong stayed in the Ancient City of Everlast for a few years, besides having gained some understanding of the seven great sects of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, he didn’t take notice of any other powers.
The three ancient horned dragons appeared above Zhang Shou Yong once again, then bared their fangs and brandished their claws as they hover down, bringing about an extremely oppressive feeling to others.
Xia Dou’s face went deathly pale when he saw this, and his eyes emitted dread.
“Since you kept saying you want to kill my brother… Then I’ll send you off, and remove all future worries for my brother.” Zhang Shou Yong spoke word for word, and every word he spoke seemed to transform into a sledge hammer that smashed onto Xia Dou’s chest, causing Xia Dou’s expression to become even paler.
In the end, it completely shattered Xia Dou’s will to fight.
Xia Dou’s body dropped with a thump. He’d actually knelt on the floor and lowered his noble head, then he said with a slightly trembling voice. “Spare me Lord! I was only kidding earlier… That unfilial son of mine actually dared offend the brother of you, Lord. He deserves death even if he died a hundred times! Lord, it’s I who didn’t teach my son well, it’s I who didn’t teach my son well!”
Currently, Xia Dou was devoid of the arrogance of a sixth level Void Prying Stage martial artist and the Vice President of the Jade Magnolia Trading Company…
Presently, he was like a dog that wagged its tail as it begged.
In the face of death, he’d completely abandoned his honor.
Just for the sake of survival.
“Vice President Xia Dou, this isn’t what you said earlier.” Ridicule appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, and he had heartfelt disdain for Xia Dou.
A dignified sixth level Void Prying Stage martial artist and the Vice President of the Jade Magnolia Trading Company had actually abandoned his honor as a man and a martial artist, all for the sake of survival…
A person like this was pitiable.
When he heard Duan Ling Tian, Xia Dou suppressed the flames of rage deep within his heart that would burst out at any moment and he said in panic, “Brother Duan, I was only joking earlier, I was just joking with you… Really, really!”
“Joking?” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze went slightly cold, then laughed strangely. “Since Vice President Xia Dou like to joke… Big Brother Zhang, I think you can play a joke with Vice President Xia Dou. I think Vice President Xia Dou ought to not mind. Right, Vice President Xia Dou?”
“Yes, yes.” Xia Dou nodded in panic, he didn’t dare say no at this moment.
Zhang Shou Yong heard Duan Ling Tian and perceived Duan Ling Tian’s intentions, and the corners of his mouth couldn’t help but curl into a slight smile.
“Vice President Xia Dou, right?” Zhang Shou Yong asked indifferently.
“Lord, just call me Xia Dou, just call me Xia Dou.” Xia Dou had a panicked expression and had lost himself.
“You like to play jokes, right?” Zhang Shou Yong asked again.
“Yes, yes.” Xia Dou didn’t dare hesitate and nodded in a hurry.
“Very good.” Zhang Shou Yong nodded, then raised his hand to press it onto Xia Dou’s head, and at the same time that Xia Dou’s body shivered, he said slowly, “Then I’ll play a joke with you, let’s see if your head will explode when I slightly exert some Origin Energy…”
Xia Dou was already shaking with fright, and when he heard Zhang Shou Yong, he lost his mind and directly fell onto the ground as he said in a trembling voice. “Spare me Lord, Spare me Lord… I can’t take this joke, I can’t!”
“Hmph!” Zhang Shou Yong’s gaze went cold, and lost any intention of continuing to tease Xia Dou, then his Origin Energy skyrocketed in his right hand.
“No!” Xia Dou’s eyes were sharp and just happened to see this scene, at the same time that his face went pale, his limbs pushed against the ground and his body trembled before seeming to transform into an eagle. He flashed off, desiring to flee.
In the sky, 8,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes dashed on in tow.
But, would he be able to flee?
“Want to flee?” The corners of Zhang Shou Yong’s mouth curled into a sneer, and in almost an instant, a layer of an earthen yellow light barrier had appeared on the surface of his body.
Above him, six ancient horned dragon silhouettes fought for the lead position as they fluttered out.
In Duan Ling Tian’s vision, Zhang Shou Yong’s body completely merged with the earth in an instant before disappearing on the spot.
At the same time that Zhang Shou Yong who’d utilized his third level Earth Concept had disappeared before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, he’d appeared over ten meters away to easily obstruct Xia Dou who wanted to flee.
Zhang Shou Yong’s palm descended with skyrocketing Origin Energy, and on the corners of the Origin Energy, traces of an earthen yellow halo could be vaguely seen.
Obviously, Zhang Shou Yong had utilized the third level Earth Concept in this strike.
The palm strike that contained the strength of six ancient horned dragons had descended onto Xia Dou’s chest and it emitted an enormous bang.
Instantly, Xia Dou followed in the footsteps of the Shi Clan’s Patriarch, Shi Li, his entire body exploded, transforming into pieces of flesh that covered the sky before scattering all over the ground.
“Shi Yan!” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian heard a delicate shout sound out, and subsequently, Li Fei who sat before him had flashed out.
Only now did Duan Ling Tian notice that Shi Yan was actually trying to flee.
Li Fei’s figure flashed out gracefully, and caught up with Shi Yan in the blink of an eyes, then the three foot long blade in her hand was send into Shi Yan’s back, passing straight through.
Li Fei’s gaze was extremely calm as she watched Shi Yan die before her eyes.
Shi Yan deserved death!
The 10 plus people that approached menacingly earlier were now scattered all over the place, dead!
“It’s just nice for me to return this Ferghana Horse to the two of you.” As Zhang Shou Yong spoke, he led two of the Ferghana Horses that were the spoils of the battle over, then he and Wang Qiong got on one each.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei rode two Ferghana Horses separately.
The four of them galloped towards the Seven Star Sword Sect.
The incident that happened earlier didn’t affect the mood of Duan Ling Tian’s group of four, and all of them chatted happily as they rode their Ferghana Horses forward slowly.
But unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. Unknowingly, the four of them had arrived at the foot of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Dubhe Peak.
Outside the Seven Star Sword Sect.
“Brother Ling Tian, sister-in-law, until we meet again.” Zhang Shou Yong lightly smiled to Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei as he bid his farewells.
“Until we meet again.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled and nodded as well.
“Big Sister Wang Qiong, if you and Big Brother Zhang are free in the future, then you must come visit me.” Li Fei had a reluctant expression as she looked at Wang Qiong.
“Of course.” Wang Qiong lightly nodded, and her eyes contained reluctance.
When they saw the figures of Zhang Shou Yong and Wang Qiong disappear into the distance, Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei withdrew their gazes, then turned their horses around to head towards the stables in the sect.
The two of them had only just entered the stables when they saw a young man come greet them.
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, Senior Sister Li Fei.”
It was Mo Yu.
After a year of not seeing each other, Mo Yu had become much more mature.
“Eh, Mo Yu, you’ve broken through to the third level of the Origin Core Stage?” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Mo Yu with a surprised expression. “I remember that you were only at the first level of the Origin Core Stage one year ago… How’d you advance so quickly?”
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian… You’re able to perceive my cultivation?” Mo Yu was dumbstruck.
Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian looked travel worn and had obviously just returned from outside the sect, so it was impossible for Duan Ling Tian to know of his current cultivation.
In other words, Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian had perceived it.
Duan Ling Tian gave Mo Yu a mysterious smile in return, then descended from his horse and supported Li Fei down before saying to Mo Yu, “We’ll leave our horses to you… Right, take this, it’s a small gift from me.” Duan Ling Tian took out a stack of silver as he spoke.
It was an entire one million silver, and he passed it to Mo Yu.
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, I can’t take this.” Mo Yu shook his head then smiled honestly.
Duan Ling Tian glanced deeply at Mo Yu, then asked curiously. “Aren’t you taking care of the horses here and being a horse keeper all for the sake of earning a little bit more pay? This money is sufficient to be equal to the pay you get from working here for many years, why do you not want it?”
Mo Yu rubbed the back of his head. “My mother told me that I have to rely on my own hard work to earn money… No gains without pains.”
“Take it, just take it to be the salary for taking care of our Ferghana Horses,” Duan Ling Tian said again.
When he saw Mo Yu still not receiving it, he immediately glared. “If you don’t take it, then you’re looking down on me!”
When Mo Yu saw Duan Ling Tian speaking up to this extent, he could only receive it, and he had an expression of gratitude. “Thank you, Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian.”
“Your natural talent isn’t bad, work hard… I hope that I have the chance to see the day you show extraordinary results.” Duan Ling Tian nodded and smiled to Mo Yu, then he took Li Fei’s hand and left the stables before following along the mountain path to head up Dubhe Peak.
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, I’ll surely not let you down.” Mo Yu had a serious expression as he held the silver in his hands tightly, his gaze firm like iron.
Duan Ling Tian sent Li Fei to the side of the chain bridge that led to Alkaid Peak, then helped Li Fei straighten out her lovely hair before saying in a gentle voice, “Little Fei, go back to your master. I’ve taken you away for more than a year and Elder Bi is surely anxiously by now… We’ve hurried on our journey for half the day and you’re already tired, so have a good rest.”
“Okay.” Li Fei obediently nodded, then stepped onto the chain bridge and left with a slow pace.
Duan Ling Tian withdrew his gaze when he saw Li Fei’s figure disappear before his eyes.
He didn’t return to Megrez Peak, but instead headed to the top of Dubhe Peak…
There were things he had to face sooner or later.
“Liu Shi Ge!” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a wisp of a cold smile.
After he arrived at the Trade Hall at the peak of Dubhe Peak, Duan Ling Tian didn’t find any trace of Liu Shi Ge, so he went close to an inner court disciple and asked. “Senior Brother, do you know where Liu Shi Ge cultivates at?”
This inner court disciple turned his head around, and his pupils constricted when he saw Duan Ling Tian. “Duan Ling Tian!”
He’d obviously recognized Duan Ling Tian.
The inner court disciple took a deep breath. That day, he was present when Duan Ling Tian was heavily injured and knocked out by Liu Shi Ge.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian had vanished for a year, and now took the initiative to look for Liu Shi Ge.
Duan Ling Tian’s objective was apparent!
To seek revenge from Liu Shi Ge!
