Chapter 1010: Weapon–Spear

Yan Wen and his daughter both knelt there. Their hearts were palpitating. They were both excited and quaking in fear too.
They could not help but look at the two carriages being pulled by dragon beasts. One of them was luxurious and contained both Pavilion Master Chun Yu Feng and a mysterious plump male. The other carriage carried Little Prince Xue Ying who was currently caressing the glossy hair of his Black Stream Cloud Wolf.”
“Father.” Yan Yu transmitted to her father.
“Relax, relax, the identity of Prince Xue Ying is extraordinary. Since he declared it openly, that Pavilion Master Chun Yu will definitely give him some respect.” Yan Wen transmitted words of consolation to his daughter. His heart remained anxious though.
The cultivators in the vicinity had long moved further away from the street. Even though they did not dare to shout and speak, they were all watching the events proceed.
The conflict of both parties above…
Was absolutely between the most prominent characters in the entire Ardent Fire City. One wielded the most significant money squandering establishment and had many subordinates; he had great influencing power too. The other was Little Prince Xue Ying who was being pampered by the whole Ying Shan Clan–even Old Mother Ying Shan regarded him highly.
“Prince Xue Ying, would it be possible for you to part with this female attendant of yours?” Chun Yu Feng chuckled. He was cordial, “I’ll naturally not let you, Prince Xue Ying, suffer.”
“Since you know she is my subordinate, you still want to snatch her away?” Xue Ying sat there casually speaking.
Chun Yu Feng’s expression turned frigid.
It was just a little girl, yet the other party did not show any qualms of giving in. If this Prince Xue Ying were deliberately doing it to obtain benefits from him, Chun Yu Feng would gladly give way and take it as an opportunity of improving their relationship. Who would have thought that this Little Prince Xue Ying was a fool and wanted to help that weak little girl out of her predicament!
Chun Yu Feng glanced at that plump male by his side.
“I do hope that you could help and take down this woman. I’ll definitely remember this favor of yours, Brother Chun Yu. The matter regarding the commodities can be discussed too.” The plump male transmitted back.
Chun Yu Feng felt his heart turning bitter. Brother Qian was clearly not willing to give her up.
“Brother Qian, this Little Prince Ying Shan Xue Ying is too young and innocent. It is the hardest to deal against such an innocent fellow.” Chun Yu Feng transmitted back.
“With the identity of Brother Chun Yu in Ardent Fire City, you can’t even accomplish this minor task?” The plump male replied.
“Ai, this is ultimately the Ardent Fire City, and the status of Marquis Ardent Fire cannot be moved. Furthermore, this Little Prince Xue Ying has said it before that she is really his attendant! If I were to snatch her away, it’d be my fault. Once the affair is made huge, I could not even gain any advantages.” Chun Yu Feng answered.
Snatching away a commoner, killing a pair of commoners…
With how vast the Ardent Fire City was, given that there were several trillions of cultivators living within, this was indeed a minor matter. But speaking from the side of the law, an aristocratic clan disciple would only be fined cosmos crystals when he committed the act.
In reality, as long as the matter was not made prominent, and one did not kill or snatch too many commoners away, there would not be any huge punishments!
But if one were to snatch or kill thousands of commoners, then, strictly speaking, even an aristocratic clan disciple could not be forgiven.
“Why aren’t you coming up? Let your father return first.” Xue Ying was too lazy to even care about delaying for more time. He gave an order.
Elder Tian pulled that girl. At the same time, he transmitted to this pair of father and daughter: “Follow along with prince first. As for you who is the father, if you want to see your daughter in the future, you can visit the Marquisdom.”
“Go, go! Why are you standing here for? Hurry over!” Yan Wen urged her.
“Mn.” The daughter Yan Yu nodded.
Elder Tian directly pulled this girl over and flew to the side of Xue Ying’s carriage. She stood there beside Xue Ying as if she was really an attendant.
“Let’s go.” Xue Ying was too lazy to even glance at the opposite Pavilion Master Chun Yu Feng.
The two dragon beasts let out a howl. They immediately pulled the carriage and flew across the sky at high speed, leaving behind just Misty Cloud Pavilion Master’s carriage.
Pavilion Master Chun Yu Feng closed the curtains. He looked towards the currently sullen plump male before saying: “This little prince is too young, and he does things really rudely and unreasonably. But we are originally in the wrong in this affair and could never win against him. It is useless even if I snatched her away. If I were to dare and move, the army from the Ardent Fire Marquisdom would directly kill their way over.”
Pavilion Master Chun Yu Feng also let out a sigh of relief.
Since Xue Ying left so unhesitantly, he actually gave Pavilion Master Chun Yu Feng the excuse of being helpless.
“Hmph.” That plump male’s expression remained sullen. The black aura moved slowly over his body. He stated coldly, “Go to the Misty Cloud Pavilion first.”
“Alright alright.” Chun Yu Feng answered.
Very soon, this carriage flew at high speed towards the Misty Cloud Pavilion.
The father of that daughter, ‘Yan Wen’, let out a breath of relief. He had guessed that this matter would not implicate him even if the perpetrators did not succeed in kidnapping his daughter away. After all, Pavilion Master Chun Yu Feng would not want to tear apart all relation with Little Prince Xue Ying.
‘Fortunately, Prince Xue Ying acted. Otherwise, this would be a dire situation.’ He sighed inwardly. Even though there were many cultivators within the Ardent Fire City, in addition to the presence of ‘fine’ as a punishment, drastically reducing the killing and snatching by aristocratic clan disciples, when the matter ended up on him, he still felt the despair. Nevertheless, living within the city was better than living out of it.
The world outside the city was truly a chaotic one where killings ran rampant. True Gods like him and ordinary void Gods would get killed without living for too long outside the city.
“Little Prince Xue Ying is really amazing.”
“He actually did not give that Misty Cloud Pavilion Master any respect.”
“Why would Little Prince Xue Ying regard that Misty Cloud Pavilion Master at all? After all, the talent of Little Prince Xue Ying ensures his future is bright. He would likely become a Conferred Marquis in the future!”
“Right right, that is a Conferred Marquis, and he naturally is different from other aristocratic clan disciples.”
The dense cultivators around the place continued their businesses. They were discussing in twos and threes, sighing about the whole affair that happened. To them, this was practically a clash between two huge characters who were almost at the top layer in the entire Ardent Fire City. One level higher? That would be between Marquis Ardent Fire and Chun Yu Wei Yi.
On the carriage.
Xue Ying sat there. The female attendant Yan Yu who stood by the side said with gratitude: “Many thanks Prince Xue Ying for saving my life.”
“Despite saying it personally, that Misty Cloud Pavilion Master seems to still want to kidnap you away. It seems that this is the idea of that companion of his–he has a huge desire for you.” Xue Ying said with apathy, “You should just remain as my attendant temporarily for now. Without this identity to protect you, you would likely be kidnapped away.”
“Yes.” Yan Yu said.
She also discovered that it was the plump male by the side of Chun Yu Feng who had a cold and greedy gaze.
“Elder Tian, investigate for me who is that person together with Pavilion Chun Yu Feng today.” Xue Ying said.
“It should not be a person from Ardent Fire City. I’ll immediately investigate everything properly once I return to the Marquisdom.” Tian Yi Zhi said too.
Xue Ying nodded.
He was able to see with a single glance that the aura from that plump male was vile. It seemed he did not care about Chun Yu Feng either. But he was ultimately just a cultivator at the Unity realm, and Xue Ying did not place him in his eyes. He was someone who had cultivated the fourth and fifth style of the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”, and those two moves were sixth level techniques.
As for the stronger seventh level strength? If he had a seventh level strength, he could directly become a Conferred Marquis! Hence, Xue Ying would have reached an extremely high status within the Ardent Fire City in just 8,000 years of cultivation.
The carriage arrived ‘Treasured Goods Market’ region. The entire Treasured Goods Market was filled with shops that either sold pills, materials, weapons and all sorts of unique items. There were low to high grades of item existing within. For instance, in the five great sacred worlds where Xue Ying originated from, such trades were usually conducted only by the holy grounds. But it was different in the Realm Heart Great Land. The transactions conducted here flourished more and varied greatly. The entire ‘Treasured Goods Market’ even had a vast array operating that prevented anyone from stealing away the items from any shops within.
“Prince Xue Ying, you haven’t come for a long time.”
“Prince Xue Ying, hurry up in.”
As Xue Ying came, many managers of the shops became passionate.
Because during the 1,000 years or so after Xue Ying came into this world, other than going out to eat all sorts of delicacies, the other activity which Xue Ying liked to do was to stroll around the Treasured Goods Market in many of the shops within. He would browse through the different weapon refinements and even some items that originated from the ancient remnants. Xue Ying was able to discover different mysteries from them.
Xue Ying entered a huge shop. Just as he came in, he was able to spot a spear floating right at the center of the entire shop; this spear was emitting an ancient murderous aura.
“Mn?” When Xue Ying saw that spear, he felt the aura coming from it, causing his eyes to brighten.
“Prince Xue Ying, you have good eyesight.” The manager by the side enthusiastically greeted.
