Subsequently, a middle aged woman and a young man in embroidered clothes walked in the Audience Hall with large strides.
“Come meet Elder Kong.” The Zhang Clan’s Patriarch looked at his wife and son and spoke in a low voice.
Presently, the people that entered were precisely the Zhang Clan Patriarch’s wife and the Second Young Master, Zhang Shou Yuan.
Both of them were stunned when the heard the Zhang Clan Patriarch.
In next to no time, the wife of the Zhang Clan’s Patriarch seemed to have remembered something, and she squeezed out a trace of a smile as she hurriedly stood by the Patriarch’s side and bowed to the old man.
“Greetings Elder Kong.” Obviously, she’d heard of this old man of the Feng Clan.
“Elder Kong!” Zhang Shou Yuan hurriedly bowed as well, and he had a smile on his face.
Although he wasn’t quite familiar with the older generation experts of the Darkhan Dynasty, his father had notified him earlier via void transmission, and it allowed him to realize how extraordinary the old man before him was.
But in next to no time, the smiles of the three members of the Zhang Clan froze.
“Hmph!” Along with Elder Kong’s cold snort, he instantly attacked.
With a raise of his hand, a condensed Origin Energy palm print whistles out to imprint itself onto the location of the woman’s Dantian.
“AH!!” The woman immediately let out a miserable and shrill cry, and then she held onto her Dantian as she bent her body and started shivering.
“My cultivation… My cultivation…” At this moment, the woman recovered from her shock, and her eyes almost split apart as she stared defiantly at Elder Kong. “Why? Why?!”
She knew clearly who the old man before her was.
She was nothing but an ant before the old man.
“Elder Kong, you… Why?” The Zhang Clan Patriarch’s expression darkened, and he suppressed the flames of rage in his heart as he asked in bewilderment, whereas, the nearby Zhang Shou Yuan was dumbstruck since long ago.
“Why?” Elder Kong glanced indifferently at the woman, and then he said slowly, “I’ll tell you the truth… It wasn’t my intention to cripple your cultivation.”
A short sentence from Elder Kong caused traces of coldness to arise from the bottom of the hearts their hearts.
Who would be able to ask this old man to head over to the Zhang Clan?
“Elder Kong… You… What you mean it… This is the intention of Lord Wu Dao?” The Zhang Clan Patriarch couldn’t help but gasp, and he asked with a trembling voice.
According to his knowledge, even though Elder Kong was a member of the Feng Clan, even the Feng Clan’s Patriarch and the two Ancestors of the Feng Clan were unable to order Elder Kong about.
Only a single person was able to make Elder Kong do something, and that was the Feng Clan Eldest Master, Feng Wu Dao!
“Patriarch Zhang, you’re very intelligent.” Elder Kong nodded.
“Elder Kong, why did Lord Wu Dao want to do this? I really don’t know how I offended him.” When she heard that Feng Wu Dao was the one pulling the strings, the woman’s countenance went ghastly pale, and her eyes that originally contained slight rage instantly dimmed down and became listless.
She knew clearly in her heart that if that person really wanted to go against her, then not to mention the Zhang Clan, even if the power she came from were to be combined with the Zhang Clan, they wouldn’t even be the slightest match for him.
That person and her were utterly not on the same level.
If the distance between her and that person was really described, then it would be the difference between the heavens and the earth…
It was precisely because of this that she was curious about how she’d offended that person.
Although she was arrogant, if it were to involve that person, then no matter how brave she was, she wouldn’t dare be the slightest bit angry.
“Why?” Elder Kong glanced deeply at the woman. “You really don’t know?”
“Elder Kong, please point it out clearly for me.” The woman was slightly not resigned as she spoke.
“Hmph!” Elder Kong grunted coldly, and then he said. “The second level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist you sent out died this morning.”
The woman’s face went deathly pale when she heard this, and her legs went weak, causing her to fall to the ground.
“You understand now, right?” Elder Kong asked with a calm expression.
“What exactly is going on?” When he saw Elder Kong and his wife speaking in an unclear manner, the Zhang Clan Patriarch couldn’t help but frown and looked towards his wife.
The woman nodded stiffly when she heard Elder Kong, and then she seemed to have thought of something and raised her head slightly difficultly before looking at Elder Kong. “There’s something I still don’t understand… Why does Lord Wu Dao help him?”
This was something she couldn’t wrap her head around, no matter how hard she tried.
As far as she was concerned, Lord Wu Dao stood high above the masses, and even the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor didn’t dare be the slightest bit disrespectful when facing Lord Wu Dao.
That kid was only someone that came from a tiny little Empire.
Logically speaking, it was impossible for there to be any connection between him and Lord Wu Dao.
“Since you’re so interested in knowing, then I’ll tell you… He’s Lord Wu Dao’s son-in-law!” As he finished speaking, Elder Kong spoke word by word.
Lord Wu Dao’s?
For a time, it wasn’t just the woman that was muddled, even the Zhang Clan Patriarch was muddled, whereas, Zhang Shou Yuan was stunned.
Wasn’t that person of the Feng Clan someone who lived his life alone?
He has a daughter?
Moreover, he even has a son-in-law?
“Lord Wu Dao said that the matter between you and him will end here. If you are to be impervious to reason, then Lord Wu Dao wouldn’t mind making a move himself, and let you remember it properly.” Elder Kong spoke as he walked out of the Audience Hall.
He walked until he arrived at the door before stopping, and then he turned around to glance at the woman. “Once Lord Wu Dao makes a move, what will happen after that isn’t something I can predict.” After he finished speaking, Elder Kong left right away, vanishing before the eyes of the three Zhang Clan members.
The woman instead completely lost her strength and crashed onto the ground.
“Mother!” Zhang Shou Yuan hurriedly squatted down and supported the woman up.
“Wife, what exactly is going on?” The Zhang Clan’s Patriarch looked at the woman and asked with a low voice.
He’s realized that this matter wasn’t ordinary.
But the woman instead disregarded him, and she only stared blankly in a trance, and her eyes revealed traces of terror.
For a time, the Zhang Clan’s Patriarch was helpless.
He was able to perceive that it would be useless no matter how much he asked now.
He could only wait for his wife to get well and recover slightly before being able to obtain any answer.
“Hao!” An aged and forlorn voice abruptly sounded out in the spacious courtyard.
Within the courtyard, an old man squatted on the ground as his trembling emaciated hands lightly stroked the face of the young man that lay on the ground.
The young man’s countenance was pale and completely devoid of any signs of life. Obviously, he’d already passed away long ago.
After a short moment, the old man took a deep breath, and his eyes revealed frightful killing intent. “No matter who it is… Since you dare kill my grandson, I’ll tear you to pieces!”
The Feng Clan’s direct descendants were divided into many lines.
His line had been passed down to his grandson, the one and only son.
Now, his grandson was dead and it meant that his line would die out.
How could he not be enraged?
“Speak! Who did it?” Finally, the old man stood up and looked at the two Feng Clan disciples that carried his grandson’s corpse back and asked with a low voice.
“It was that granddaughter of Senior Xu.” The two Feng Clan disciples didn’t dare dally and spoke hurriedly.
When the old man heard what these two Feng Clan disciples said, his face went pale, and his body couldn’t help but tremble intensely. After that, he asked once more as if he wanted to confirm something. “What? What did you say?!”
“That granddaughter of Senior Xu… She seems to be called Tian Wu,” said a Feng Clan disciple.
“Tian? Feng Tian Wu? It’s her… Why is it her?” The old man successively took a few steps back and closed his eyes in pain before he crashed down to kneel on the floor and kneel before the corpse of his grandson.
Others didn’t know the true identity of Feng Tian Wu, but how could he not?
For a time, the two Feng Clan disciples looked at each other with puzzled expressions.
The scene before them seemed to be completely different from what they imagined.
In their imagination, the old man ought to become so angry that his hair seems to stand up, and then he would go look for trouble with the murderer and even kill the murderer to take revenge for his one and only grandson.
Yet now, the old man didn’t act in such a way.
Moreover, he seemed to have slightly given up to despair.
“Both of you, leave!” Finally, the old man’s voice sounded out abruptly, and it contained slight shame and rage mixed within, terrifying the two Feng Clan disciples to the point they left hastily.
“What’s wrong with Third Elder today? He wouldn’t be sick, right? This isn’t like him.”
“Yeah, the Third Elder has always been extremely doting towards Feng Hao…. Logically speaking, since Feng Hao was killed today, he ought to directly head over to take revenge. Yet now, he seems to not intend to do this.”
After the two Feng Clan disciples left, they discussed in a light voice and felt deeply puzzled.
“Hao!” In the courtyard, the old man looked at the corpse before him and had an expression of grief and indignation. “Grandfather is useless and is unable to take revenge for you! But no matter what, Grandfather will seek justice for you.”
After he finished speaking, the old man stood up and left the courtyard.
After a short moment, the old man headed all the way towards the estate within the Feng Clan Estate that the Feng Clan’s Eldest Master, Feng Wu Dao, resided in.
Within this estate, Duan Ling Tian was chatting idly with Feng Wu Dao and Feng Tian Wu.
Presently, Feng Tian Wu’s mood had completely eased up, and it caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to help but heave a sigh of relief.
Suddenly, the sound of the door being knocked sounded out.
Along with Grandma Xu opening the door, the sound the rapid footsteps came from afar and entered into the ears of Duan Ling Tian who sat within the Audience Hall.
This person has come with bad intentions!
By only hearing the footsteps, Duan Ling Tian was able to sense that something was off.
“I wonder if it’s that Third Elder or the Ye Clan members.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart as he guessed.
The smile on Feng Wu Dao’s face was restrained as well, and his eyes emitted strands of bright lights.
Meanwhile, Feng Wu Dao noticed that the atmosphere was off as well.
“Eldest Master! Feng Qing seeks an audience.” An aged and sonorous voice clearly entered into the Audience Hall.
“Third Elder? Truly a rare visitor.” Feng Wu Dao stood up and instantly vanished before Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu’s eyes, and when he appeared once more, he was already at the entrance to the Audience Hall.
“How swift!” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils couldn’t help but constrict.
At the same time, under his curiosity, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force silently stretched out to sweep towards Feng Wu Dao.
He wanted to detect Feng Wu Dao’s exact cultivation.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian noticed that his Spiritual Force hadn’t even approached Feng Wu Dao before vanishing into thin air.
It was as if his Spiritual Force was a rock that sunk into an ocean.
“With my current Spiritual Force, I’m actually unable to detect Uncle Feng’s cultivation?” For a time, Duan Ling Tian gasped in his heart.
“There are only two possibilities as to why my Spiritual Force is unable to detect Uncle Feng’s cultivation.”
