Chapter 489: Compensation For Emotional Distress
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The Ma Clan’s Patriarch looked at the little gold mouse in Duan Ling Tian’s hand with a gaze that contained a fiery sheen that seemed to have transformed into flames that could burn everything…
He could imagine that if this third level Void Prying Stage Goldfur Mouse was obtained by their Ma Clan, then their Ma Clan would surely monopolize the entire Black Wind City!
“Patriarch Ma, the words you spoke in the end are slightly sour… That day, Little Gold was brought out to auction by your Ma Clan Auction House, it can only be said that your Ma Clan members had eyes but failed to see, and that’s why they allowed a bright pearl like her to be covered in dust! Whereas I have sharp discerning eyes and didn’t stint to pay a great price to bid for her…” Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the Ma Clan’s Patriarch, and he never expected that the Ma Clan’s Patriarch would be so thick skinned. “Now, you have the nerve to say that I obtained a great benefit? Or perhaps, on the matter of Little Gold, you think that I’ve taken advantage of your Ma Clan?”
“You!?” The Ma Clan’s Patriarch couldn’t help but be flustered and exasperated when he heard Duan Ling Tian, yet he had nothing to say.
After all, Duan Ling Tian wasn’t wrong in the slightest.
In this matter, it was indeed their Ma Clan members that had eyes yet failed to see and missed a variant Goldfur Mouse that could change the fate of the Ma Clan.
Up until today, the Ma Clan members still thought that the little gold mouse was only a Goldfur Mouse, and the only reason it grew so swiftly was because it had undergone a variation.
They instead didn’t know in the slightest of the little gold mouse’s true identity, a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse.
After all, a Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse was a demon beast of legend in the Foreign Lands.
Even in the Foreign Lands, not everyone had heard of the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse.
“Young man, what exactly do you want?” One of the old men standing behind the Ma Clan Patriarch took a step forwards as he spoke in a deep voice.
This old man was one of the Ma Clan Supreme Elders.
That year, this young man had a Void Prying Stage expert following by his side, and it caused them to be exceedingly afraid.
Today, although the Void Prying Stage expert wasn’t present, there was a Void Prying Stage demon beast by the young man’s side. Moreover, it was a third level Void Prying Stage demon beast, and it caused them to be even more afraid.
“What I want?” Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the old man, and he couldn’t help but laugh. “It ought to be I who asks all of you this question, right?”
“My Ma Clan had already repaid everything we owe you… What do you intend to do by trespassing into my Ma Clan this time?” The Ma Clan’s Patriarch asked with a deep voice.
“Repaid everything you owe me?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned when he heard the words of the Ma Clan Patriarch, then he came to a sudden understanding. “Patriarch Ma, what you’re talking about ought to be the death of the person in-charge of the Ma Clan Auction House at that time, Ma Qin, and the 10 million gold, right?”
“Hmph!” The Ma Clan Patriarch grunted coldly in approval.
“You’re correct.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. “Your Ma Clan had indeed completely repaid everything you owed me for the incident that occurred in the Ma Clan Auction House…”
Right when all the Ma Clan higher-ups heaved a sigh of relief in their hearts.
Duan Ling Tian’s voice suddenly became louder and it contained a trace of coldness and fierceness. “But I didn’t come to your Ma Clan today for the incident from that day! That day, since I’ve accepted the money of your Ma Clan, I naturally won’t fuss about it.”
“I came to your Ma Clan because I want you to repay me for the debt you owed me later on!” As he spoke up to here, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze went completely cold and his face seemed to be covered in a layer of ice.
“Squeak squeak!!” The little gold mouse seemed to have noticed Duan Ling Tian’s rage and she stood up to bare her fangs and brandish her claws at the Ma Clan higher-ups.
In her hand, a spirit sword appeared out of thin air.
Along with the Origin Energy flickering on the sword in her claws.
6,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes gradually condensed into form above the little gold mouse.
This scene caused the heartbeat of the Ma Clan higher-ups who already had a guilty conscience to speed up abruptly.
“A demon beast has a spirit sword as well?”
“This spirit sword assists it to amplify its strength by the strength of 2,000 ancient mammoths… It’s a grade five spirit weapon?”
The Ma Clan higher-ups shuddered in fear.
Some of them who had comparatively weaker hearts were terrified to the point they directly sat on the ground with shivering bodies that flowed with cold sweat.
Grade five spirit weapon!
What sort of notion was that?
Even if it was the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, it seemed that only the few great powers that stood at the top possessed grade five spirit weapons, right?
“You… Who exactly are you?” The Ma Clan Patriarch looked at Duan Ling Tian with a ghastly pale expression that was filled with terror.
Would a person that’s able to give a demon beast a grade five spirit weapon be an ordinary person?
“Who I am isn’t important.” Duan Ling Tian naturally knew what the Ma Clan Patriarch was thinking, and he said indifferently. “I presume that all of you have recalled what you owe me, right? All of you are really capable. That matter had originally come to an end, yet all of you still didn’t forget it and even drew Xia Guang’s father, Xia Dou, to me.”
“Perhaps, as far as all of you were concerned, I would surely die at the hands of Xia Dou, and I would forever be unable to get even with all of you, right?” When Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, his gaze swept past every single Ma Clan higher-up one by one.
Every time his gaze descended onto someone, it would cause that person to be unable to refrain from going pale.
The four old men behind the Ma Clan’s Patriarch had bitter smiles and an expression of helplessness on their faces.
They never imagined that this young man had already found out about this matter.
They originally thought that so long as Xia Dou found this young man, then even if this young man knew that it was them who played tricks from behind, it would surely be impossible for the young man to come get even with them.
After all, Xia Dou wouldn’t let the young man off.
Or perhaps, Xia Dou looked for this young man on a grand scale and hadn’t found the young man before the young man noticed it.
But no matter what, they knew that they were about to be struck with misfortune.
“You… What exactly do you want?” A ghastly pale color started to creep up onto the Ma Clan Patriarch’s face as he asked in a deep voice.
“What I want?” Duan Ling Tian smiled and glanced deeply at the Ma Clan’s Patriarch. “That would depend on the Ma Clan’s sincerity. If the sincerity isn’t enough…”
When he spoke up to here, Duan Ling Tian stopped and glanced at the little gold mouse in his hand. “Little Gold, if the money they give isn’t enough for you to buy meat to eat, what do you think we should do?”
The little gold mouse leaped up as soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, she stood in the sky as she shook the grade five spirit sword in her hand, gesturing at all the Ma Clan higher-ups…
This caused all the Ma Clan higher-ups to go white!
Half an hour later, Duan Ling Tian left the Ma Clan Estate with the little gold mouse, and a wisp of a satisfied smile appeared on his face.
This time, he’d extorted an entire 100 million gold from the Ma Clan!
Of course, all of it was in bills.
All the gold bills that the Ma Clan had available had come into Duan Ling Tian’s possession.
“Little Gold, I’ll properly reward you today.” Duan Ling Tian brought the little gold mouse into a restaurant and specially ordered a table full of roast meat for the little gold mouse.
The roast meat was of a great variety and it was extremely fragrant.
The little gold mouse ate to the point her stomach was completely round, and she lay on the table as she burped without end.
At the moment, the little gold mouse was completely round and exceedingly cute.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and continued eating on his own.
After Duan Ling Tian finished eating, night had gradually arrived and Duan Ling Tian brought along the little gold mouse to find an inn to stay at.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse cried out to Duan Ling Tian.
“What? Little Gold, you intend to go look for that person that captured you that time?” Duan Ling Tian smiled as he said, “Go ahead, come back early.”
“Squeak squeak squeak~” However, although the little gold mouse nodded, she didn’t have any intention of leaving.
Right at this moment, the little gold mouse’s voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears. “Big Brother Ling Tian, let’s go together, and help me get some money to buy meat while we’re at it.” As she finished speaking, the little gold mouse’s jade green eyes flickered with a green light.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up when he heard the little gold mouse. “Alright! I just hope that Half-step Void Stage fellow isn’t a person with no backing… It would be great if he’s a member of the other two great clans of Black Wind City.”
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian left the inn with the little gold mouse.
They searched for half the night before finally locking onto their target.
The Huang Clan!
Duan Ling Tian started laughing when he saw the estate that occupied an area no less than the Ma Clan Estate.
If he wasn’t wrong, this place ought to be the Estate of one of the three great clans of Black Wind City, the Huang Clan.
“Hehe… Big Brother Ling Tian, looks like that fellow isn’t a person without backing.” The little gold mouse’s excited voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears. “Big Brother Ling Tian, you must order a table of food just for me again tomorrow.”
Duan Ling Tian was speechless.
This little gold mouse spoke as if he’d ill-treated her.
Duan Ling Tian and Little Gold trespassed into the Huang Clan as they did at the Ma Clan.
The reaction of the Huang Clan was similar to the Ma Clan.
However, after Little Gold displayed her strength at the third level of the Void Prying Stage, all the Huang Clan higher ups were completely terrified.
In the end, the Half-step Void Stage martial artist of the Huang Clan was pressured to come out as well.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse instantly emitted an enraged sharp cry when she saw this fellow.
“It’s… It’s you!” This Half-step Void Stage martial artist of the Huang Clan obviously recognized the little gold mouse as well, and for a time, it was as if he’d seen a ghost.
The infant Goldfur Mouse that couldn’t fight back against him that day actually possessed such a terrifying strength now?
For a time, he felt as if he was dreaming.
The facts proved that he wasn’t dreaming and everything before him was real.
“All of you have seen it as well, this little companion of mine isn’t happy… That day, this Supreme Elder of your Huang Clan caused her to suffer.” Duan Ling Tian looked at all the Huang Clan higher-ups and grinned as he spoke.
“Squeak squeak!!” Seeming to be cooperating with Duan Ling Tian, the little gold mouse emitted enraged sharp cries.
Her cries contained Origin Energy and pierced the ears of the Huang Clan higher-ups present to the point that some of the comparatively weaker people were ghastly pale and their bodies shivered.
“Then what do you want?” The Huang Clan’s Patriarch took a deep breath and asked.
“Patriarch Huang is a straightforward person as expected!” Duan Ling Tian grinned, and his smile contained slight evilness mixed within. “How about this, I’m not the type of person that likes violence… All of you just have to slightly give my little companion some compensation for emotional distress. How about it?”
