Chapter 775: Dongguo Lei
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Under the astounded gazes of the surrounding crowd of spectators, the four generals of the Dongguo Clan left directly after consuming healing medicinal pills.
The direction they left towards wasn’t the direction of the Dongguo Clan.
Presently, they only had a single thought in their mind, and it was to leave as far as possible and never return to Ancient Desert City!
Only in this way would they be able to avoid the pursuit of the Dongguo Clan.
However, even though the four generals of the Dongguo Clan had fled, the news of the Dongguo Clan’s Eldest Young Master being killed was still sent back to the Dongguo Clan.
The Dongguo Clan, one of the three great clans of Ancient Desert City that controlled a portion of the city.
At this moment, at the vast lake within the Dongguo Clan Estate, an old man sat silently at the side of a pergola at the center of the lake, and he held a fishing rod and was fishing.
Even though the old man was fishing, yet his eyes were closed tightly and he seemed to be extremely relaxed.
This old man looked to be no different than an ordinary old man.
Suddenly, the old man opened his eyes and a bright light flashed past within.
At the same time, the old man’s hand that held the fishing rod shook and directly pulled it up, and an enormous fish was pulled up and just happened to be tossed into the nearby bamboo basket.
If someone was here and saw the hook on the old man’s fishing rod, they would surely be extremely shocked.
Because, this fishing hook was actually straight!
If Duan Ling Tian was here and saw this scene, he would surely be unable to help but recall the legend of Grand Duke Jiang fishing that was passed down since ancient times in the Earth of his previous life.
Fishing like Grand Duke Jiang, allowing a fish to be readily caught!
The fish hook of Grand Duke Jiang was a straight hook.
“I’ve finally hooked one… Han will get to enjoy nice food today.” The old man smiled lightly as he muttered, and as he said the word Han, his muddy eyes seemed to reveal dense affection.
His entire life was filled with troubles, his son had died early and only left behind a single grandson, and it could be said to be a single line of inheritance.
It was precisely because of this that he doted on and loved that grandson of his, and he wished for nothing more than to give all the best things in the entire world to that boy.
It was also exactly because of this grandson that he’d always been forcibly occupying the place of Patriarch in the Dongguo Clan, because he intended to pass on this position to his grandson in the future.
He’d placed his greatest expectations onto his grandson, whereas his grandson didn’t disappoint him. Even though his grandson was slightly ‘spoiled,’ his natural talent and comprehension ability wasn’t bad.
As for the part of being ‘spoiler,’ he didn’t mind because everyone had a time that they were young and arrogant.
Moreover, he had the ability to allow his grandson to act like this in Ancient Desert City, and he wasn’t the slightest bit worried that someone would dare offend his grandson.
Suddenly, the old man frowned as he saw a figure was dashing towards the pergola at the center of the lake in panic.
“Didn’t I say that I don’t like people disturbing me while I’m fishing?” The old man’s face sank, and as he spoke, an extremely formidable aura was emitted from his body before enveloping the person’s body and pressing down onto the person to the point the person couldn’t help but bend down.
The person that had come was an old woman and was precisely the Manager of the Dongguo Clan. Presently, she had an extremely unsightly expression and was slightly hesitant to speak.
“Hmm?” The old man’s face sank when he saw the old woman’s expression.
This old man had served the Dongguo Clan for her entire lifetime, and he knew the old woman extremely well. If it wasn’t for the occurrence of a terrible major event, it was impossible for the old woman to lose her composure.
“What? Has something major happened?” The old man asked.
The old woman took a deep breath when she heard the old man, and she said with a trembling voice, “Pat… Patriarch, Eldest Young Master… Eldest Young Master has…”
“What happened to the Eldest Young Master?” The aura on the old man instantly strengthened and pressed onto the old woman, causing her to break out in cold sweat and shiver.
The old man’s gaze was like a sword that seemed to penetrate the old woman’s body.
“Patriarch, you have my condolences.” Finally, the old woman caught her breath and speak while having her head lowered.
The old man’s body trembled when he heard the old woman. Instantly, an extremely terrifying aura was emitted from the old man.
In the next moment, gusts of terrifying gales arose abruptly in the surroundings of the pergola, and the gale moved faster and faster to finally transform into numerous material blades of wind in the end.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
The old man’s rage caused blades of wind to sweep out and instantly mince the entire pergola into pieces that crashed down into the vast lake.
The entire pergola on the lake had instantly ceased to exist.
Not only that, the water in the entire lake at this moment was enveloped by numerous gusts of terrifying violent winds that continued to sweep out as if they’d transformed into numerous roaring water dragons.
At this moment, only the old man and old woman weren’t affected by this.
The old woman had her head lowered and didn’t dare speak a word.
She deeply felt the monstrous rage of the Patriarch, and she didn’t doubt in the slightest that if she dared speak at this moment, she would very likely become the person the Patriarch vented his rage on.
“Lead the way!” The old man shouted out coldly, and with a raise of his hand, he brought along the old woman to vanish in the sky above the vast lake.
Meanwhile, the lake water that surged in the lake had once again returned to calm.
“Who did it?!” Many Dongguo Clan higher-ups were gathered in the Audience Hall of the Dongguo Clan, and when they saw the old man roaring as he charged in, they couldn’t help but sigh.
“Han!” The old man stood by the side of the corpse that lay on the ground, and his eyes flickered with a fierce light as he looked at the corpse that was pierced through the throat by a sword. “Don’t tell me that all of you haven’t found out who did it?” The old man’s words were filled with extremely icy coldness that caused everyone present to be unable to help but shiver.
“Patriarch, he’s one of the eyewitnesses.” In next to no time, the old woman that followed in behind the Patriarch brought along a young man who carried a modest posture and spoke to the old man.
The old man’s gaze that was like swords descended onto the young man when he heard this, and his aura swept out right after.
The young man’s face instantly flushed red when from being enveloped by the old man’s aura, and then he fell collapsed on the ground and spat out a mouthful of blood as he looked at the old man with a terrified expression.
“Speak!” The old man’s icy cold voice was filled with killing intent, causing the young man to feel as if he’d fallen into a pit of ice, and he didn’t dare hesitate to hurriedly speak about the scenes he’d saw not long ago.
“At the beginning, Young Master Han galloped on his horse and whipped a woman flying with his horsewhip. The woman’s child stood on the street and was about to die under the hooves of the horse… At this moment, a red clothed woman made a move to save that child.”
“After that, Young Master Han…”
The young man was exactly one of the people that had passed by and witnessed the entire course of events today, and he spoke of the scenes he saw without missing the slightest detail.
Along with the young man finishing speaking, a terrifying aura gushed out from the old man and pressed down onto the Dongguo Clan higher-ups present to the point they couldn’t help but take a few steps back.
As for the young man, he was directly blasted flying, and his head collided onto a pillar in the Audience Hall, depriving him of his life.
Perhaps even the young man himself had never imagined that he would die so unjustly.
After all, the reason he’d come to inform the Dongguo Clan was precisely for the sake of the Dongguo Clan’s reward, yet now, he hadn’t even obtained the reward he ought to have obtained, but he’d already died unjustly.
“Good! Very good! He even dares kill the grandson of I, Dongguo Lei! It looks like that violet clothed kid is getting tired of living!” The voice of the old man, the Patriarch of the Dongguo Clan, Dongguo Lei, was like a thunderclap as it spread out, causing the eardrums of some of the Dongguo Clan higher-ups with comparatively lower cultivations to tremble, and their faces went pale.
“Grand Elder, I’ll give you a day of time… I want to see the heads of those four traitors by then!” Dongguo Lei looked at a grey haired old man and spoke with a low voice.
“Yes, Patriarch.” The old man replied respectfully before turning around and transforming into a bolt of lightning that left to go carry out his work.
“The remaining people…” Subsequently, Dongguo Lei looked towards the remaining Dongguo Clan higher-ups, and his eyes flickered with killing intent. “All of your missions are to investigate the identity of the violet clothed kid that killed my grandson… Once you find out about his location, bring him back. I want him alive! As for his three companions, directly kill them.”
“The first person to find out the identity of the violet clothed kid will obtain 1,000 mid grade Origin Stones.”
“The person that brings the violet clothed kid back can obtain 10,000 mid grade Origin Stones!”
“Besides that, anyone who brings the head of any one of the companions of that violet clothed kid will obtain 1,000 mid grade Origin Stones.”
Dongguo Lei issues the internal rewards of the Dongguo Clan, and this was sufficient to show how urgently he wanted to take revenge for his grandson.
“Yes!” The gazes of everyone lit up as they replied respectfully, and then left impatiently.
Everyone hoped to be able to obtain the rewards promised by the Patriarch.
The person that brought the violet clothed kid back could obtain 10,000 mid grade Origin Stones!
Even if it was the Dongguo Clan’s Second Elder, Third Elder, and other elders with lofty status, 10,000 mid grade Origin Stones were something they similarly were anxious to obtain.
Along with Dongguo Lei issuing his orders, the entire Dongguo Clan was mobilized.
The entire Ancient Desert City had gone completely mad!
Yet the person concerned, Duan Ling Tian, was silently staying within the Narcissus Pavilion of Skywolf Fort and cultivating with great efforts.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Sword Dragon Form!
As the overbearing medicinal strength of the Rebirth Pill spread out in his body, Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy advanced at an extremely terrifying speed, and this speed was sufficient to cause any martial artist in Cloud Continent to perspire from embarrassment and even feel a sense of inferiority.
“According to this speed, I ought to be able to smoothly break through to the third level of the Void Interpretation Stage in another two or three months at most!” As he felt the swift advancement of his Origin Energy, Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
“Along with the advancement of my Origin Energy, the Advanced Sword Force seems to be almost at the time of transformation… There’re another three days before the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties begins.” Duan Ling Tian continued to cultivate for the sake of achieving Sword Concept.
Finally, another day passed.
On this day, Duan Ling Tian awoke from his cultivation, and when he opened his eyes, it faintly seemed as if a sword light that was filled with a sharp and fierce aura flashed within his eyes.
With a raise of his hand, Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy condensed into a sword, and strands of fierce aura leaped about on the sword and emitted a wave of light sword howls.
At the same time, another ancient horned dragon silhouette appeared out of thin air beside the existing 30 ancient horned dragon silhouettes.
First level Elementary Sword Concept!
