Chapter 475: It’s Easier To Summon An Evil Spirit Than Allay It
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze contained slight mischief mixed within as it slowly shot onto the dumbstruck Mo Tu.
At this moment, Mo Tu had an expression of astonishment, and he hadn’t recovered from his shock up to now.
Never had he imagined that this young man actually possessed such a terrifying strength, heavily injuring and knocking down all the five clan generals he brought with him in an instant.
“You… Who exactly are you?” At this moment, if Mo Tu still didn’t know that he’d bitten off more than he could chew, then he’d really have lived in vain for all these years.
Mo Tu’s heart was filled with regret, and he hated himself for being overwhelmed by anger earlier…
“Lead the way.” Duan Ling Tian raised his hand, and five grade seven Gold Injury Pills shot into the hands of those five Mo Clan generals.
The five Mo Clan generals were deeply grateful as they consumed it.
“Lead the way?” Mo Tu was stunned, and only now did he recall Duan Ling Tian’s words from before, and his face went pale.
However, even if he was unwilling, he had no choice.
Duan Ling Tian’s strength was far from something he and the people he brought could go against.
In the entire Fair Sun County, the Mo Clan could be considered a large clan as well, and its might and status in Fair Sun County was only inferior to the Governor’s Estate.
However, the atmosphere in the Mo Clan today was exceptionally oppressive.
Within the Mo Clan Audience Hall, the seat at the head that originally belonged to the Mo Clan’s Patriarch was seized by a violet clothed young man.
Below him, all the Mo Clan higher-ups including the Mo Clan’s Patriarch were gathered together.
But at this moment, their hearts were filled with nervousness.
A young man around the age of 23 had swept through five of their Mo Clan’s generals who possessed outstanding strength, and the young man was suspected to have stepped into the Nascent Soul Stage.
They knew clearly in their hearts what a 23 year old Nascent Soul Stage martial artist meant.
In their Crimson Sky Kingdom, it was probably difficult for even the Imperial Family and the three great clans of the Imperial City to produce such a peerless genius.
In other words, this young man is very likely to not be a member of the Crimson Sky Kingdom, and it was even possible that he was from those formidable Imperial Kingdoms, Empires, or even Dynasties!
Not to mention their Mo Clan, even the Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Imperial Family might not dare offend such a person.
“Unfilial son, why haven’t you knelt?!” Suddenly, the Mo Clan’s Patriarch kicked his own son, Mo Tu, to the ground as he shouted out coldly.
Mo Tu didn’t dare hesitate, and he knelt on the floor as his body shivered.
Now he’d realized the seriousness of the matter as well.
“Young Master, how should I address you?” The Mo Clan’s Patriarch looked at Duan Ling Tian as he asked with a perturbed expression.
“Duan Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian spoke indifferently.
Duan Ling Tian?
As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, the Mo Clan’s Patriarch instantly went ghastly pale.
The expressions of the remaining group of Mo Clan higher ups went pale as well.
Mo Tu’s body went limp when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s name, and he collapsed on the floor, only to struggle up and kneel once more after a short while.
Duan Ling Tian!
The Duan Clan’s direct descendant disciple.
The Commander of the Embroidered Uniform Guard.
The person the Emperor trusts the most.
The nephew of the Divine Might Marquis.
As a great clan of the Fair Sun County, how could the Mo Clan have not heard about the number one genius of the Crimson Sky Kingdom, Duan Ling Tian, who gave rise to much discussion a few years ago?
However, never had they imagined that the Duan Ling Tian that had supposedly left the Crimson Sky Kingdom had actually returned.
Not only had he returned, he’d even come to their Fair Sun County’s City.
Furthermore, a member of their Mo Clan had actually acted against Duan Ling Tian…
For a time, the gazes of all the Mo Clan higher-ups descended onto Mo Tu, and their gazes were filled with rage.
Slap! Slap! Slap! Slap! Slap!
The Mo Clan’s Patriarch took a stride forward then raised his hand, striking Mo Tu with both hands, and directly slapping Mo Tu to the point Mo Tu’s face was completely swollen.
“Commander Duan, Mo Hong didn’t teach his well, I hope that Commander Duan can pardon my offense!” Subsequently, the Mo Clan’s Patriarch, Mo Hong, bowed in apology to Duan Ling Tian, and he had a perturbed and humble expression.
“Please pardon the offense, Commander Duan!” All the Mo Clan higher-ups bowed in apology, and they hated Mo Tu in their hearts to the utmost degree.
Although Duan Ling Tian wasn’t someone from the great powers of those Imperial Kingdoms, Empires, or Dynasties, but to them, Duan Ling Tian was far more terrifying than the members of those powers that came from those Imperial Kingdoms, Empires, and Dynasties.
If it was someone who came from those places, the powers behind them wouldn’t go to the extent of lowering their own status and making a fuss about it with their Mo Clan.
But Duan Ling Tian was an existence that could be called a ‘malefic existence’ in the Crimson Sky Kingdom.
The could imagine that once the incident from today spread out, Duan Ling Tian wouldn’t even need to say anything and there would be a group of powers that would make a move domineeringly to curry favor with Duan Ling Tian by annihilating their Mo Clan.
Moreover, Duan Ling Tian had obviously broken through to the Nascent Soul Stage now!
They’d heard of Duan Ling Tian leaving the Crimson Sky Kingdom a few years ago and heading to the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom intending to join a sect.
As far as they were concerned, it was surely because Duan Ling Tian obtained the cultivation resources of those formidable sects in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom that he was able to attain such great improvement, breaking through to the Nascent Soul Stage at such a young age!
With Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent, he’d surely be able to receive high regard from the sects of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
In the future, it wouldn’t be difficult for him to become a great figure in the sects of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
They could imagine that the current Duan Ling Tian was sufficient to make any power in Crimson Sky Kingdom intentionally curry favor with him…
“Duan Ling Tian… He’s actually Duan Ling Tian! I should have thought of it since the beginning, I should have thought of it since the beginning! In the Crimson Sky Kingdom, probably only Duan Ling Tian is able to scare Li to the point she would flee in panic.” Mo Tu’s body shivered as he knelt on the floor.
“Patriarch Mo, you jest. I only came to your Mo Clan this time because I want to disturb you for a few days… I have no other choice, I’ve been poor lately and can’t even afford to say in an inn.” Duan Ling Tian sat on the seat at the head, his left hand holding up the little gold mouse that was knocked out from the wine, his right hand lightly stroking the little gold mouse’s smooth back, as he pretended to sigh.
The Mo Clan higher-ups were all dumbstruck for a moment before reacting to what Duan Ling Tian meant!
“Commander Duan, this is one million gold, just take it as our Mo Clan’s apology, please accept it.” The Mo Clan’s Patriarch, Mo Hong, didn’t say a single word before directly withdrawing a large pile of gold from his Spatial Ring, then he passed it to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian received the gold without the slightest modesty, then casually tossed it into his Spatial Ring.
The Mo Clan higher-ups heaved a sigh of relief when they saw this.
As far as they were concerned, since Duan Ling Tian took the money, then he ought to not make a fuss about this matter.
“Hmmm… I’ll take this one million gold as the compensation for the fright this Young Master Mo caused me.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the Mo Clan higher-ups as he spoke indifferently.
The Mo Clan higher-ups that thought they could send off Duan Ling Tian just like that were completely dumbstruck.
One million gold is only the compensation for fright?
Mo Tu who knelt on the ground felt his vision go black and he nearly fainted.
His heart was filled with grievance.
Exactly who frightened who?
Of course, he didn’t dare say anything, and he could only helplessly say it in his heart.
The Mo Clan’s higher-ups reacted to Duan Ling Tian’s words, and they once again stared angrily at Mo Tu with tacit understanding.
As far as they were concerned, if it wasn’t for Mo Tu, would their Mo Clan have ‘invited’ such a great lord here…
It’s easier to summon an evil spirit than allay it!
Today, they could be considered to have completely understood the meaning of these words.
“Commander Duan, please accept this.” Mo Hong gave over another one million gold, and his heart was bleeding.
Two million gold was undoubtedly an enormous figure to the Mo Clan.
Now, he truly wished for nothing more than to slap his son to death!
This prodigal son of his has wasted two million gold for the Mo Clan in such a short amount of time.
“Hmm.” Duan Ling Tian received the gold and nodded in satisfaction. “Patriarch Mo is frank as expected… Since Patriarch Mo is so frank, then I won’t make it difficult for Patriarch Mo any longer.” Duan Ling Tian’s words caused Mo Hong and the Mo Clan higher-ups to heave a sigh of relief.
We’re finally going to send off this malefic existence?
However, in the next moment, their hearts were suspended up once more when they heard Duan Ling Tian’s following words.
“I’ll take this one million gold as the money for the grade seven Gold Injury Pills I gave your Mo Clan generals… Patriarch Mo, you don’t mind, right?” Duan Ling Tian put away the stack of gold once again, then he looked at Mo Hong and asked with a calm tone.
“I don’t mind, I don’t mind!” Mo Hong didn’t dare hesitate and hurriedly responded.
But he’d already broken out with curses in his heart since long ago.
Five grade seven Gold Injury Pill are one million gold?
This was simply even unscrupulous than an unscrupulous merchant!
“Since it’s like this… Since Patriarch Mo has been so cooperative, your Mo Clan will compensate me with another one million gold as the cost for making me fight, how about it? All of you know as well that when a Nascent Soul Stage martial artist fights, there’s still a slight amount of Origin Energy that needs to be used up.” A smile bloomed on Duan Ling Tian’s face. “Patriarch Mo, am I right?”
At this moment, when Duan Ling Tian’s smile entered into the eyes of Mo Hong and the Mo Clan higher-ups, it was no different from the smile of a devil.
“He only fought for a moment and even bashed our people… Yet he wants a compensation fee for fighting?” The mental line of defense that was already broken of Mo Tu who knelt there while suffering torment had completely collapsed.
In the next moment, Mo Tu’s vision went black, then he was directly angered to the point he fainted.
But no one pitied him, and this included his father.
Three million gold being gifted out like this was undoubtedly a great loss to the Mo Clan.
It was because that their Mo Clan had relied on their relationship with the County Governor’s Estate and monopolized many businesses in the Fair Sun County, otherwise, even if they surrendered all the resources in their clan, they wouldn’t be able to produce so much money.
Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but secretly sigh when he received a million gold once again.
He never imagined that the Mo Clan, a mere clan of a County City was actually able to produce so much money…
At the beginning, he only planned to ask for a few hundred thousand gold from the Mo Clan.
Unexpectedly, then Mo Clan’s Patriarch, Mo Hong, directly produced a million gold, and it caused him to feel that it would be rude if he didn’t take more.
It could be imagined that if Mo Hong knew the thoughts in Duan Ling Tian’s heart, he would probably be angered to the point he spat blood on the spot…
“Patriarch Mo, your Mo Clan is truly generous… If I’m free in the future, I’ll surely come here often.” When Duan Ling Tian left, he smiled as he spoke to Mo Hong.
However, these words of his instead caused the faces of Mo Hong and all the Mo Clan higher-ups to go pale.
This malefic existence still wants to come often?
“Haha… I’m joking, I’m joking.” Duan Ling Tian laughed when he saw the expressions of the Mo Clan higher-ups, then he brought along the little gold mouse and left directly.
The gains this time were not bad.
