Chapter 875: The Frenzied Wood Peak Disciples
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
Ye Xuan walked out of her room and looked towards Luo Chen who was high above in the sky, and for a time, her eyes flickered with rage.
Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu soared up into the sky successfully, and in the blink of an eye, they arrived in the sky to stand in confrontation with Luo Chen from afar.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu hadn’t even had the chance to speak when they saw a red clothed bearded old man descending down to Luo Chen’s side, and he stared at them with an icy cold gaze.
“A Void Transformation Stage expert?!” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted, and an expression of shock suffused his face.
Huang Daniu revealed a slightly fearful expression as well as he said to Duan Ling Tian who was beside him in a low voice, “Duan Ling Tian, looks like Luo Chen has called over his master.”
Luo Chen’s master was precisely the Wood Peak’s elder, He Gang.
When Chen Wei and Luo Chen were in confrontation earlier, Duan Ling Tian had found out about this from the whispered discussions of some Wood Peak disciples.
But never had he imagined that Luo Chen would actually call his master over.
“Master, it’s the two of them that killed Hong Xi!” Luo Chen looked at Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu as he spoke to He Gang with a low voice, and his eyes contained strands of frightful cold lights that seemed ready to swallow Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu up.
“Hong Xi was killed by the two of you?” He Gang’s piercingly cold gaze stared at Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu as furious rage appeared on his face.
At the same time, his red clothes fluttered without the wind.
Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu hadn’t even had the time to speak when Luo Chen had already stretched out his hand to point towards the distance. “Master, look… That’s Hong Xi’s corpse! After they crippled Hong Xi’s cultivation, they allowed him to fall to his death.” The directions Luo Chen pointed towards was precisely the side of the cliff that Hong Xi fell to his death on.
At that place was a terrifying pool of blood and a corpse that had been smashed into mush.
He Gang glanced over, and his pupils couldn’t help but constrict.
Suddenly, vast and material milky white Origin Energy gushed out from him, and it was like liquid that flowed around his body.
Within the vast and material Origin Energy that seemed to be in liquid form was strands of violent energy leaping about, and it seemed as if it would shoot out at any moment.
“Killing him was only a thought away… Yet the two of you actually used such a cruel method to kill Hong Xi! Both of you don’t have the qualifications to become disciples of my Wood Peak.” He Gang seethed with fury as he stared coldly at Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu, and his voice was extremely chilly. “It isn’t just that, both of you must pay the price for Hong Xi’s death!”
We don’t have the qualifications to become Wood Peak disciples?
We have to pay the price for Hong Xi’s death?
Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu couldn’t help but glance at each other when they heard He Gang, and they saw extreme rage from the eyes of each other.
Suddenly, a wisp of a cold smile suffused the corners of both their mouths.
“You’re the Wood Peak’s elder, He Gang?” Duan Ling Tian took a step forward and looked He Gang in the eye without the slightest fear, and he asked with a cold voice.
“Presumptuous!” He Gang hadn’t spoken when Luo Chen had already shouted out. “Duan Ling Tian, how can a would-be Wood Peak disciple like you speak my master’s name? Not to mention you’re only a would-be Wood Peak disciple, even if you’ve become an official disciple of our Wood Peak, my master’s name isn’t something you can address directly.”
But Duan Ling Tian disregarded Luo Chen and looked at He Gang as he asked with a cold voice. “Elder He, you’ve said that we have to pay the price for Hong Xi’s death… Could it be that you think we killed Hong Xi for no reason? Or perhaps you think Hong Xi wasn’t in the wrong?”
He Gang’s expression was extremely unsightly from being questioned to his face by Duan Ling Tian.
Who was he?
The dignified elder of the Five Element Sect’s Wood Peak, an existence at the sixth level of the Void Transformation Stage.
A would-be Wood Peak disciple dared be so presumptuous before him?
But when Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, his brows couldn’t help but frown as he realized he’d overlooked something that was the most important.
How did Hong Xi offend these two people before him?
“Then I want to hear, exactly what faults does Hong Xi have?” He Gang asked with a cold voice.
“I’m afraid you have to ask your good disciple.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were suffused with coldness as he looked at Luo Chen and spoke word by word.
“Hmm?” He Gang instantly looked at Luo Chen when he heard this. “Luo Chen, speak.”
“Yes, Master.” Luo Chen replied respectfully, and then he said, “I admit that I was in the wrong first in the incident today! When I saw Chen Wei bring them to the Wood Peak, the desire to excel emerged in my heart and I obstructed their path…” Luo Chen spoke as he stretched his hand out to point at Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu.
“Mmm.” He Gang nodded and revealed a gratified smile.
He naturally understood this disciple of his.
His disciple always sought to excel over others, so doing this wasn’t surprising to him. But, since Luo Chen could recognize his own mistakes, then it was a good beginning, and it was excusable.
After Luo Chen indicated the reason of the conflict, when Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu saw that not only did He Gang not have any intention of blaming Luo Chen, he instead revealed a smile, their expressions instantly became slightly unsightly.
“Duan Ling Tian, looks like this old fellow is a brainless person that sides with those who are wrong.” Huang Daniu’s enraged voice transmission entered clearly into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“I noticed.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, and then his eyes narrowed slightly as he said via voice transmission. “Like Master like disciple! Perhaps we were wrong since the beginning. The reason the Wood Peak has declined isn’t entirely because the other three peaks are acting against the Wood Peak.”
“Hmph! This old fellow actually dares say this Big Brother Daniu doesn’t have the qualifications to become a Wood Peak disciple… Does he really think I’m desperate to become their Wood Peak’s disciple? With my natural talent, even the Gold Peak wouldn’t refuse my entrance.” Huang Daniu’s vice transmission was filled with disdain.
“After that, I and Hong Xi had only spoken improperly and slightly offended them… But they didn’t say anything and exploded out to cripple Hong Xi’s cultivation before causing him to fall to his death!” Luo Chen continued.
As he finished speaking, he looked at He Gang, and his face was suffused with extreme rage as he said angrily, “Master, you must take revenge for Hong Xi… Even if Hong Xi was at fault, his fault didn’t warrant death!”
He Gang nodded before looked at Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu with a gaze that was filled with icy cold killing intent. “Do the two of you have anything to say now?”
“Hmph!” Huang Daniu grunted and revealed an expression of disdain as he said, “Will anything I say now be of any f*cking use? No wonder this Luo Chen is so arrogant and dares to cause trouble for no reason. It turns out that he had such a ‘good master’ like you to support him!”
“With a woodworm like you here, it’s no wonder that the Wood Peak would fall into decline.” As he finished speaking, Huang Daniu spoke bluntly.
“You’re courting death!!” He Gang’s face went grim when he heard Huang Daniu.
Subsequently, the Origin Energy on his body that was practically liquid shook, and then it transformed into numerous thick violet colored bolts of lightning that faintly emitted heavy rumbling sounds of thunder within.
In the sky above He Gang, over a thousand ancient horned dragon silhouettes converged together in a formidable array that seemed like a black cloud that covered the sky, and it brought an extremely oppressive feeling to everyone present.
“Sixth level of the Void Transformation Stage! Sixth level Advanced Lightning Force!” Duan Ling Tian’s face sank slightly. Even though he knew since long ago that He Gang was an elder of the Wood Peak, yet he never imagined that He Gang’s strength would be so strong.
A sixth level Void Transformation Stage elder surely possessed an extraordinary status in the Wood Peak.
For a time, coldness arose in Duan Ling Tian’s heart.
He suddenly felt that the words Huang Daniu spoke early was so true.
Perhaps that Wood Peak’s decline was really not solely because there were no outstanding disciples left in the Wood Peak’s younger generation, and it was also because this Wood Peak elder’s failure to distinguish between right and wrong!
As the saying goes, a pitiable person surely had something detestable about him. The Wood Peak was just like that.
“My god! Elder He actually wants to make a move against them.”
“They’re the future of our Wood Peak! This won’t do, we must absolutely not allow anything to happen to them, otherwise, we’ll be unable to walk with our heads held high when facing the disciples of the other four peaks like before!”
“Brothers, Sister, if you don’t want to suffer humiliation anymore in the future, then follow me! No matter what, we mustn’t allow Elder He to injure the future hope of our Wood Peak!”
“I’ll go notify Senior Brother Chen Wei!”
Right when He Gang raised his hand with the intention of making a move against Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu, and when a ‘talisman’ appeared in the hand of Duan Ling Tian as his gaze locked onto He Gang tightly while being ready to toss out the talisman and annihilate He Gang at any moment.
“Stay your hand!”
“Elder He, you can’t kill them! You can’t destroy the future of our Wood Peak!”
“Elder Ke, if they’re killed by you, then you’ll become condemned as a traitor of our Wood Peak for eternity!”
“He Gang, I don’t f*cking care if you’re an elder of the Wood Peak or not. If you want to lay a hand on them, then you must step over my dead body!”
A wave of seething voices that were like rumbling thunder sounded out from all directions, and it caused He Gang’s expression to be unable to help but go grim.
As for Luo Chen, he was completely dumbstruck when he saw a group of Wood Peak disciples charging over in a formidable array, as he never imagined that such an exaggerated thing would occur.
These Wood Peak disciples have come to help Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu who’re two outsiders?
At this moment, at the same time that his heart was filled with disbelief, boundless hatred and envy arose in his heart.
Subsequently, he hastily looked towards He Gang and urged. “Master, quickly kill them! Quickly kill them!”
At this moment, there was only a single thought that remained in his heart — Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu must die!
When he heard Luo Chen’s words, the expression of Duan Ling Tian who was originally stunned by the Wood Peak disciples that converged over from all directions went grim, and then he hastily moved his attention to He Gang and locked onto He Gang with his gaze.
So long as He Gang made the slightest movement, he wouldn’t hesitate in the slightest to toss out the talisman and annihilate He Gang.
But He Gang seemed as if he didn’t hear Luo Chen, and he slowly lowered his hand as the violet colored bolts of lightning that coiled around his body dispersed without a trace along with this action.
“They…” He Gang was dumbstruck as he looked at the crowd of Wood Peak disciples that had converged from all over, and a bad premonition faintly arose in his heart.
Two would-be Wood Peak disciples that hadn’t officially registered themselves as disciples of the Five Element Sect had caused so many Wood Peak disciples to stand out for them. No matter how slow he was in reacting, he still realized that something was amiss.
