Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Compensation for emotional distress?
When they heard that Duan Ling Tian only wanted money, all the Huang Clan higher-ups including the Huang Clan’s Patriarch heaved a sigh of relief.
As one of the three great clans that were equally famous as the Ma Clan, the Huang Clan’s wealth naturally wasn’t little.
However, their expressions quickly became gloomy again.
Because Duan Ling Tian asked for a few tens of millions of gold the moment he opened his mouth…
“Isn’t this a little too much?” The Huang Clan’s Patriarch looked hesitantly at Duan Ling Tian.
Whereas the Supreme Elder that captured the little gold mouse and put her up for auction in the Ma Clan Auction House had an expression that was ashen.
After all, even the money he obtained from auctioning the little gold mouse that day was only a few million gold.
This young man wanted over ten times the money he’d obtained from selling the little gold mouse that day.
The young man was simple demanding too much!
“Too much?” Duan Ling Tian smiled indifferently. “Patriarch Huang, I believe that your Huang Clan is still able to produce this little money… Right, the Ma Clan’s Patriarch was much more straightforward than you, he didn’t say a word before giving me 100 million gold.”
Ma Clan, 100 million gold?
As soon as Duan Ling Tian said this, the group of Ma Clan higher-ups were dumbstruck.
“Patriarch Huang, I’ll give you the time of three breaths to consider it… If you’re unwilling, then if this little companion of mine does any rash things, then it would be something that can’t be solved with money.” Duan Ling Tian’s face revealed a smile that was like the devil.
“Squeak squeak~” Where the little gold mouse that stood on his shoulder shook the grade five spirit sword in her hand in a timely manner. It was as if she was saying to the Huang Clan’s Patriarch ‘If you don’t give me money, then I’ll kill all of you!’
The corners of the Huang Clan’s Patriarch’s mouth twitched, and he could only compromise in the end.
He didn’t doubt Duan Ling Tian’s words in the slightest.
If he were to delay past the time of three breaths, this third level Void Prying Stage demon beast would surely attack them.
“Patriarch Huang is direct as expected!” After he received the money, a brilliant smile bloomed on Duan Ling Tian’s face, then he glanced at the Huang Clan’s Supreme Elder. “Elder, when you capture a fierce beast next time, you have to open your eyes wide and look clearly… Otherwise, just you alone are probably enough to cause the Huang Clan to go bankrupt.”
The words Duan Ling Tian spoke before leaving caused the Huang Clan’s Supreme Elder to flush red.
He only caught his breath after Duan Ling Tian’s figure vanished before his eyes, and he was angered to the point that he spat out a mouthful of blood.
The blood dropped onto the ground and seemed to have transformed into a dazzling red rose that had bloomed on the ground.
When Duan Ling Tian walked out of the Huang Clan Estate, he was exceedingly happy. “Now, adding on the money the Huang Clan gave me… The money in my possession has already arrived at 200 million!”
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse cried out twice and said via voice transmission, “Big Brother Ling Tian, don’t forget my meat…”
“Don’t worry, so long as we eat in a restaurant in the future, I’ll order a table full of meat just for you. How about it?” Duan Ling Tian had an excellent mood, and he promised the little gold mouse.
“Hehe… Big Brother Ling Tian is the best.” The little gold mouse’s voice transmission was filled with excitement.
Now that is was already deep into the night, Duan Ling Tian and the little gold mouse were prepared to return to the inn after leaving the Huang Clan Estate.
All along the way, there weren’t many people that could be seen.
Suddenly, two figures swiftly walked past Duan Ling Tian. It was originally nothing, yet the conversation the two had in a low voice had instead drawn Duan Ling Tian’s attention.
“Fourth Brother, who’s that woman that’s called Wang Qiong? Boss Wu is actually personally going out to capture her back.”
“Shh… Softly. Don’t ask what you shouldn’t ask. An expert with terrifying strength follows by that woman’s side, and if it wasn’t for the large sum of money President Han gave, Boss Wu wouldn’t take advantage of that expert being in closed door cultivation and take a risk to go capture that woman. After all, once this matter were to be noticed by that expert, we would surely die.”
Although the voice of the two were soft, Duan Ling Tian still heard it clearly.
Duan Ling Tian frowned.
He remembered that the wife of Big Brother Zhang that he’d met in the Ancient City of Everlast was called Wang Qiong.
“An expert with terrifying strength follows by her side? They wouldn’t be speaking about Big Brother Zhang, right?” Duan Ling Tian gasped.
Big Brother Zhang was Zhang Shou Yong that Duan Ling Tian got acquainted with at the Eternal Jade Restaurant in the Ancient City of Everlast.
Later on, Zhang Shou Yong and Wang Qiong left after sending Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei back to the Seven Star Sword Sect.
“I’ll follow and take a look.” Although he wasn’t sure, Duan Ling Tian still followed them.
In the end, under the lead of the two people, Duan Ling Tian leaped into a luxurious estate.
This estate was a private estate, and the person that lived within was either wealthy or noble.
“President Han.” Duan Ling Tian hid outside the hall and heard the two of them respectfully greeting a middle aged man at the center of the hall who wore embroidered clothes.
“You two are?” The middle aged man in embroidered clothes obviously didn’t know these two people.
“President Han, who we are isn’t important… What’s important is that the thing you entrusted Boss Wu to do has been completed,” One of the two men said with a light smile.
“Brother, what do you mean by this?” Although the middle aged man in embroidered clothes maintained his composure, the Spiritual Force Duan Ling Tian stretched out was able to notice that the breathing of this middle aged man had obviously become rapid.
“This person is really cautious.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“President Han… There’s a woman called Wang Qiong that’s a guest in Boss Wu’s Estate.” The other one of the two men spoke frankly.
“Really?!” This time, the middle aged man completely lost his composure, and he revealed an expression of wild joy. “Boss Wu has really caught that bi**h?”
“Yes, the expert by that woman’s side just happened to be in closed door cultivation and Boss Wu devised a scheme to deceive her to come out of her home, and then he capture her. President Han, Boss Wu asked us to call you over, so as to avoid trouble arising from any delay… You must do it cleanly before that expert notices,” said one of the two men.
“Haha… Good! I’ll follow both of you now.” The middle aged man called President Han laughed loudly as he left the hall with the two people, then left his private estate.
“It ought to not be sister-in-law, right?” Duan Ling Tian frowned. Logically speaking, Wang Qiong ought to not come to the extent of incurring enmity with people of the Black Wind City.
He knew of Wang Qiong’s character.
Perhaps, it was someone with the same name, and coincidentally, this Wang Qiong had an expert following by her side as well.
However, for safety’s sake, Duan Ling Tian still followed them.
If this Wang Qiong really was the wife of Big Brother Zhang, his sister-in-law, then if he were to let it slip because of this, it would really be too late to regret.
Duan Ling Tian followed the three people and quickly arrived at an inconspicuous estate at another end of Black Wind City.
This estate was extremely remote.
If it wasn’t for the three people leading the way, Duan Ling Tian might not have been able to find this place.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the middle aged man in embroidered clothes followed the other two people to walk into the rear courtyard of the estate.
There was an independent room in the rear courtyard, and a dog guarded outside it.
“Woof woof~” The dog barked when it saw the middle aged man in embroidered clothing.
“Moneybags, stop barking, he’s one of us.” The two men that led the way hurriedly pacified the dog, causing the dog to temporarily quiet down.
“President Han, Boss Wu is within, please go in.” The two of them escorted the middle aged man to enter the room before closing the door behind them.
Duan Ling Tian followed into the rear courtyard. The instant he saw the dog look over and open its mouth intending to bark, his Spiritual Force swept out and he used his soul skill, Thousand Illusions, to build an illusion space, causing the dog to fall into deep sleep.
Suddenly, a clear slapping sound resounded out from the room. Subsequently, the voice of that President Han sounded out. “Wang Qiong, a bi**h like you has fallen to such a state… You dare be complacent, you dare seize my business!? Today, let me see how that person by your side will save you.”
Slap! Slap! Slap! Slap! Slap!
The clear sounds of slapping ceaselessly sounded out.
“Han Jian An, you’re despicable! You aren’t my match in business so you actually use such underhanded methods to deal with me… To think that you’re the President of the Center Valley Trading Company’s branch, you’ve truly lose face of the Center Valley Trading Company.” A voice that was melodious and pleasant to the ear sounded out in a timely manner, and the emotions of the voice couldn’t be discerned from it.
“Hmph! So what if I use these methods? What can I do if I, Han Jian An, have many friends? This Brother Wu Ji is a good friend of mine… So what if the person by your side is strong? Didn’t you fall into the hands of Brother Wu Ji in the end?” Han Jian An grunted coldly and spoke with an arrogant tone. “I’ll kill you today! A bi**h like you isn’t worthy of fighting me.”
“Sister-in-law!” When Duan Ling Tian heard the woman’s voice, he felt it to be slightly familiar, and after a short moment, he finally recalled it.
That voice was precisely the voice of Wang Qiong, the wife of his Big Brother Zhang Shou Yong.
“Stay your hand!” Duan Ling Tian didn’t dare hesitate and shouted out explosively as he knocked open the door like a cannonball and charged into the room.
This was an independent torture room.
At the center of the torture room was a stake, and a woman was tied on it. Although the woman’s face was in a sorry state, yet she didn’t lower her head from the beginning until the end, and the unyielding expression on her face even made men feel ashamed of their inferiority.
It was precisely Wang Qiong.
The wife of Zhang Shou Yong.
“Sister-in-law!” Duan Ling Tian’s face went gloomy when he saw the numerous bruises on the woman’s face and he shouted coldly. “Little Gold!”
Instantly, Little Gold who was on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder transformed into a gold light that shot out and bit off the string that tied Wang Qiong, allowing Wang Qiong to regain her freedom.
“Brother Ling Tian!” Wang Qiong originally thought that a great calamity was upon her, yet suddenly, a person had unexpectedly appeared to save her, and the person that saved her was an acquaintance of hers.
“Kid, who’re you? Didn’t you find out who I, Blood Leopard, Wu Ji, am? Within the territory of the Black Wind City, even the three great clans don’t dare to offend me lightly! Since you’ve come here today, then don’t leave.” A robust middle aged man with half his arm bare and had a blood leopard tattoo on it, had killing intent on his face as he spoke to Duan Ling Tian.
Han Jian An, who wore embroidered clothes, looked at Duan Ling Tian with a mocking expression.
“Is that so?” Duan Ling Tian sneered.
A Half-step Void Stage martial artist dared brag before him?
“Blood Leopard? I’ll make you become a dead leopard today!” Right at this moment, a hoarse voice that was filled with violent temper instantly swept into the room from outside, and it filled the entire room.
The voice contained extreme rage mixed within…
