Chapter 877: Two Demands
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
Never had He Gang imagined that such an important thing was actually only touched on lightly by his disciple.
If he knew beforehand that Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu had suffered such a humiliation before making a move, the he would absolutely not take action because he was utterly unable to justify his actions.
“Why didn’t you tell me all this?” He Gang looked at Luo Chen as he spoke with a low voice, and his expression was unsightly to the extreme.
Luo Chen kept silent.
It was naturally impossible for him to tell He Gang all of this because he knew that once he did, then with his master’s character, it would be impossible for his master to make a move against Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu.
But never had he imagined that when Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu were just about to be killed by his master, those Wood Peak disciples came over in a formidable array to cause trouble and stop his master.
In a battle, the winner is always in the right!
This was the picture in Luo Chen’s heart.
But Luo Chen wasn’t worried either. Even though he’d gone slightly too far in this matter, but the two people concerned, Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu, were fine after all.
As far as he was concerned, it wouldn’t come to the extent of having to pay with his life.
Moreover, the Wood Peak needed people the most now.
As an outstanding talent in the younger generation of the Wood Peak, he believed that even Yang Ling and Ke Zheng wouldn’t really do anything to him.
Once something was to happen to him, it would be a loss to the entire Wood Peak.
So he feared nothing.
“After Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu were repeatedly humiliated by Hong Xi and Luo Chen, the both of them couldn’t endure it any longer and each of them gave Luo Chen a slap… Subsequently, Hong Xi was heavily injured and had his cultivation crippled.” Chen Wei continued speaking of the scene at that time. “At that time, even though Hong Xi’s cultivation had been crippled, yet if someone saved him, he wouldn’t have fallen to his death… Hong Xi sought for help from Luo Chen, yet Luo Chen didn’t even spare him a glance before leaving without saving him.” The surrounding crowd of Wood Peak disciples nodded in unison, and they agreed with what Chen Wei said.
A clear sound of a slap resounded out, and it drew the gazes of everyone.
He Gang had given Luo Chen a slap under his extreme rage, and he hit so heavily that it caused Luo Chen’s head to slant to the side before spitting out a mouthful of shattered teeth.
It wasn’t just that, a side of Luo Chen face was completely swollen, causing him to seem very much like he had half a pig’s head on him.
“Ma… Master, you…” Luo Chen was stunned, completely stunned.
This was the first time his master had become so enraged before him and the first time his master had struck him so fiercely, causing him to be unable to accept it for a time.
“Little fellows, the truth of this matter had already been revealed now, and He Gang and his disciple have suffered the lesson they deserved… How about ending the matter like this?” After he found out about the sequence of events, Yang Ling glanced coldly and indifferently at He Gang and Luo Chen, and then he looked at Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu before asking their opinion.
“The lesson they deserved?” Duan Ling Tian sneered. Just this little bit of light injury is the lesson they deserved?
“Impossible!” Huang Daniu shook his head, and then he spoke resolutely.
“Hehe… This Elder He was extremely amazing earlier. He said I and Duan Ling Tian don’t have the qualifications to become Wood Peak disciples! Since it’s like this, then I and Duan Ling Tian have utterly no reason to stay in the Wood Peak.” Huang Daniu glanced indifferently at He Gang as he chuckled.
As soon as Huang Daniu said this, it wasn’t just the expressions of Yang Ling, Ke Zheng, and Chen Wei that changed, even the expressions of the surrounding crowd of Wood Peak disciples had gone completely grim.
For a time, the crowd of Wood Peak disciples glared angrily at He Gang.
As far as they were concerned, if it wasn’t for the words He Gang had said earlier, why would Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu have the intention of leaving the Wood Peak?
“Don’t worry elders, even if I and Daniu leave the Wood Peak, we won’t go to the Water Peak, Fire Peak, or Earth Peak… We’ll go to the Gold Peak. I presume the Gold Peak wouldn’t refuse us.” Duan Ling Tian glanced at Ke Zheng and Yang Ling before speaking indifferently.
“Hmph!” Meanwhile, He Gang grunted coldly and said in disdain, “You kids overestimate your ability! The incident from before is indeed my disciple’s fault, but Elder Yang has already said that the matter can end here. Yet the both of you still dare take a mile when given an inch?”
“You two were only able to cripple Hong Xi who had a strength equal to Luo Chen while jointly attacking him, how strong do the both of you think you are? Do the both of you really think you’re so important to the Wood Peak?” As he finished speaking, He Gang looked at Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu with a gaze filled with contempt.
“HAHAHAHA…” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but burst out with laughter when he heard He Gang, and then he looked at Yang Ling and Ke Zheng before shrugging indifferently. “Elder, both of you have seen as well… Since the Wood Peak doesn’t welcome me and Daniu, then we’ll naturally not stay here shamelessly.”
“Duan Ling Tian, we’ll go get Little Xuan first before leaving the Wood Peak… I don’t want to stay in this place for another moment!” said Huang Daniu.
“Alright!” Duan Ling Tian readily agreed.
The expressions of Yang Ling and Ke Zheng darkened as they glared furiously at He Gang in unison, and their gazes that were fierce like blades wished for nothing more than to slice He Gang apart.
Now they finally understood.
He Gang utterly had no knowledge about Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu’s true strength and thought that the two of them had to join forces before being barely able to defeat Hong Xi who possessed a strength similar to Luo Chen.
“Duan Ling Tian, Daniu… Wait for a moment.” Right at this moment, Chen Wei called out to Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu.
“Chen Wei, no matter if I stay at the Wood Peak or not, you’ll be a friend of mine forever.” Duan Ling Tian smiled lightly.
“Me too.” Huang Daniu spoke out as well.
“Duan Ling Tian, Daniu, both of you wait for a moment… Just for a moment, alright?” Chen Wei’s tone contained a trace of a pleading tone.
Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu glanced at each other, and then they nodded to Chen Wei in agreement after coming to an agreement.
Chen Wei heaved a sigh of relief when he saw this, and at the same time, he looked at He Gang who stood in the distance and asked with a low voice. “Elder He Gang, you said that Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu were only able to defeat Hong Xi by joining forces? As far as I’m concerned, that’s simply a humongous joke!”
“Huh?” He Gang was first stunned when he heard Chen Wei, and then he frowned. “Could it be that it isn’t true?”
This was something that his disciple, Luo Chen, had told him personally, so could there be something fake about it?
“This was probably something Luo Chen told you, right? Looks like Luo Chen really hates Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu to the core… For the sake of his own selfish desire, he completely disregarded the future of the Wood Peak!” After he saw He Gang’s reaction, Chen Wei extremely easily guessed some things, and he hit the nail on the head.
The Wood Peak’s future!
He Gang’s face darkened when he heard this, then his eyes revealed disbelief as he looked at Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu, and his heart trembled. “Could it be… Could it be that they were able to cripple Hong Xi in a one on one battle?”
“What?! Luo Chen actually didn’t tell Elder He that Huang Daniu suppressed Hong Xi in a single move, and he crippled Hong Xi’s Dantian in the second move?”
“Huang Daniu comprehended the Earth Concept, and even if he fought in midair and didn’t draw assistance from the energy of the earth… When he attacked while not utilizing a spirit weapon, he was still able to draw the energy of the heavens and the earth to condense 130 ancient horned dragon silhouettes!”
“Duan Ling Tian isn’t bad either. He’s at such a young age, yet already possesses a strength that surpasses Senior Brother Chen Wei and Luo Chen.”
“Elder He’s expression seems to be slightly unsightly… Looks like Luo Chen really didn’t tell him about the true strengths of Huang Daniu and Duan Ling Tian.”
“Luo Chen is really selfish! For the sake of his own selfish desire, he didn’t have any scruples to ruin the future of our Wood Peak.”
The crowd of Wood Peak disciples discussed animatedly, and in the end, they couldn’t help but glare angrily at Luo Chen.
Another resounding slap sounded out, He Gang had given Luo Chen another slap, causing the other side of Luo Chen’s face to swell up and become a complete ‘pig’s head.’
In a single day, Luo Chen was beaten into a ‘pig’s head’ twice.
“Bastard! You’re trapping me to betray the Wood Peak!” He Gang currently seemed like an enraged tiger that wished for nothing more than to open its bloody mouth and swallow Luo Chen, yet was unable to do it in the end.
Luo Chen didn’t beg for forgiveness, and he continued maintaining silence.
He knew that silence was the best protection at this moment.
“Duan Ling Tian, Huang Daniu!” In next to no time, He Gang took a deep breath and looked at Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu before deeply bowing to them. “I apologize for the words I said earlier… No matter what, I hope that both of you can stay in the Wood Peak!”
“The Wood Peak can’t endure being put into a state of turmoil once more… The Wood Peak needs people like the both of you to create a future for it, and the disciples of the Wood Peak need people like the two of you to stand up for them and allow them to walk with their heads held high.” He Gang’s words were spoken with extreme sincerity.
Since he found out about Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu’s strength, he seemed as if he’d become a different person, and he’d become a person that put the Wood Peak before anything else.
“Hmph!” Duan Ling Tian grunted coldly and paid no attention to He Gang.
“Do you think that a few words of apology can resolve what you and your disciple did to Duan Ling Tian and me? If it’s really so simple, then everyone can just stop cultivating, and it would be best for us to cripple our own cultivations.” Huang Daniu sneered.
“So long as the both of you are willing to stay in the Wood Peak, then I’ll agree to anything!” He Gang spoke with a sincere expression.
“Are you sure?” The cold smile on Huang Daniu’s face grew colder.
“Yes!” He Gang nodded.
“Alright… Since you agreed so readily, I won’t beat around the bush with you. So long as you’re willing to agree to two of my demands, then I can continue staying at the Wood Peak. Moreover, I guarantee I won’t join any of the other four peaks.” Huang Daniu spoke slowly.
“What about him?” He Gang looked at Duan Ling Tian.
“I can’t make a decision for him.” Huang Daniu shook his head.
“Daniu, what’re your demands?” Duan Ling Tian was slightly curious as he asked via voice transmission.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian obtained a reply from Huang Daniu and couldn’t help but gasp, and then he replied via voice transmission with slight astonishment. “Daniu, you’re really a ruthless fellow!”
“Hehe. Who asked them to offend me? Especially that old fellow, he almost killed me earlier.” When he recalled the scene from before, Huang Daniu couldn’t help but feel a slight lingering fear in his heart.
“So long as you agree to Daniu’s two demands, I can stay in the Wood Peak with Daniu. Moreover, I won’t join any of the other four peaks as well.” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze descended onto He Gang who was staring at him before speaking indifferently.
He Gang’s eyes lit up when he heard this, and the he hurriedly looked at Huang Daniu before asking urgently. “What’re your demands? Please state them.”
Presently, He Gang had completely lost his lofty attitude that he had when facing Huang Daniu and Duan Ling Tian earlier.
