Chapter 1020: The Fury of the Ying Shan Clan
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Old Mother Ying Shan’s voice remained calm, “Your governance of Ardent Fire City is too lax, allowing so many experts to enter.”
“It is I who is incompetent.” Marquis Ardent Fire lowered his head and replied.
“There is even a Magic Servant Chao Qing!” Old Mother Ying Shan nonchalantly stated, “For someone to send Devil Nian Jiu and a magic servant as an assassin, this person should have an exceptional identity.”
Marquis Ardent Fire obediently nodded.
He was a Grandpa Marquis, yet was not willing to buy a magic servant. Of course, he could still afford the ‘Magic Servant Chao Qing’ which was the cheapest and weakest puppet in the Primal Chaos realm. Nevertheless, as he would be staying at the Ardent Fire City to protect it for long periods, he felt that there was no need to purchase one! It was too extravagant and wasteful.
“Investigate.” Old Mother Ying Shan coldly ordered, “Dig out everything. Floating Dust, you should accompany me and stay for three days in the Ardent Fire City. Help me investigate this matter too. The subordinates of Ardent Fire are likely weaker than you in terms of their searching capabilities.”
“Alright.” The green-pupiled old man chuckled.
Old Mother Ying Shan was an extremely ancient Conferred King within Southern Cloud Nation. Her strength was ranked in the front too. When Floating Dust was weak, he had gotten an enormous favor from Old Mother Ying Shan. After that, the two became closer over time.
Xue Ying and Ying Shan Lie Hu had both stood up a long time ago from the carriage.
“Little fellow Xue Ying.” Old Mother Ying Shan laughed as she looked at Xue Ying, “Why are you holding on to a spear? Are you thinking of personally fighting against the enemy?”
“Old Ancestor.” Xue Ying unraveled his aura abruptly. He confidently stated, “I currently wield a God Yuan Palace fifth level strength. It is still possible for me to fight a round or two with the enemy. Naturally, I am unwilling to be captured just like this.”
The eyes of Old Mother Ying Shan sparkled at that instant.
“You’ve reached the fifth level in the “Southern Cloud Sacred Body”?” The incarnation of Marquis Ardent Fire was stunned.
“This is rare. Prince Xue Ying has only cultivated for five million years, yet you have reached the God Yuan Palace fifth level strength.” Floating Dust sighed, “It is possible to reach the Unity realm by depending on your bloodline, yet cultivating the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” require good comprehension ability. For you to reach this realm in just five million years show you have an amazing talent.”
Old Mother Ying Shan might be happy, though she still reminded: “Don’t praise this young fellow too much. His bloodline is extraordinary, and it originates from the king’s ‘void bloodline’ as well. It is natural that the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” will come easier for him. His speed of cultivation merely is above average that he could reach this stage in five million years.”
She was afraid that Xue Ying might get complacent.
After all, he was the one with the greatest innate talent within the history of Ying Shan Clan. If Xue Ying became too complacent and lost seriousness in cultivation, it would significantly affect his future.
“Little Fellow Xue Ying,” Old Mother Ying Shan smiled, “You might have reached the God Yuan Palace fifth level strength, but regardless of that magic servant or Old Devil Nian Jiu, both of them have reached the seventh level strength. Killing you is as simple as flipping their hands.”
“I know. But I can’t just sit still and let them kill me without retaliating.” Xue Ying answered, “Old Ancestor, I have already acquired this strength, so it is time for me to pay the capital a visit right? I would like to go to the main religion headquarters of Southern Cloud Sacred Religion to learn the complete “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”.”
Both Old Mother Ying Shan and Marquis Ardent Fire could not help but nod.
“You should indeed go, and should go there as soon as possible.” Marquis Ardent Fire added.
“The experts in the main religion headquarters of the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion are like clouds–there are many of them. Going there will aid in your cultivation.” Old Mother Ying Shan said, “You should stay there and cultivate for a period. With your talent, it should be easy for me to find my old friend and make you become an inner disciple of the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion.”
“Many thanks, Ancestor.” Xue Ying thanked.
“You should go back and rest first. After a few days, I’ll arrange for you to set off.” Old Mother Ying Shan said. With a wave of his hand, she enveloped Xue Ying, Ying Shan Lie Hu, Tian Yi Zhi and the group of protectors and attendants with her energy. “Hong–,” she forcefully teleported them into the Ardent Fire Marquisdom. Clearly, it was an easy task given Old Mother Ying Shan’s strength to teleport them when the void was not suppressed.
Naturally, she could not achieve ‘ultra-long distance teleportation’.
“Hmph.” The expression of Old Mother Ying Shan became colder after that, “I would like to find out who exactly was the one that started this whole affair.”
The eyes of Marquis Ardent Fire flashed with a frosty intent too. His fury had clearly reached the tipping point.
The entire Ardent Fire City was jittery.
“Hua hua hua.”
Practically the entire Ardent Fire Army came out from its nest. Many teams of soldiers flew above Ardent Fire City and went to various places to conduct the investigation.
Old Mother Ying Shan merely left an incarnation here. But with her protecting this region with Marquis Floating Dust, both of them would personally go investigating suspicious point that came up.
WIth her around…
Even the other giant of Ardent Fire City, Chun Yu Wei Yi who controlled the Southern Cloud Sacred Hall here temporarily ordered his subordinates to return to their positions. They were temporarily under strict orders not to move about.
The plump Chun Yu Feng knelt there. His face was filled with sweat.
Marquis Ardent Fire sat there. The entire place was surrounded by soldiers. Marquis Ardent Fire was currently looking at Chun Yu Feng coldly.
“Yes yes, I’ve said everything already, but Grandpa Marquis, this affair is honestly unrelated to me.” Pavilion Master Chun Yu Feng shouted out anxiously. He was also asking his clan for help, though the clan merely gave him an answer–coordinate with the Ying Shan Clan!
The fury of Old Mother Ying Shan!
Chun Yu Clan might be one of the three Great Emperor realm clans, yet it was impossible for them to offend Old Mother Ying Shan for this little fellow!
Being a Conferred King, Old Mother Ying Shan could casually wipe out the existence of Chun Yu Feng, and she would not suffer from any aggression at all,
Many chains of dubious businesses conducted in the past were being pulled out. Many aristocratic clan disciples were also captured for interrogation. These aristocratic clan disciples did not have any potential and naturally wanted to earn more ‘resources’. Hence, some of them would have partaken in those dubious businesses before. And now, disaster was brought down upon them by that Qian Gan Xue.
“Qian Gan Xue, it is fortunate that you died early. Otherwise, I’ll never forgive you.” Chun Yu Feng gritted as he was locked in prison. During these two short days, he suffered from many interrogations and punishments. He had even been sent over to the Ying Shan Clan for interrogation under the illusory realm. Even still, Marquis Ardent Fire kept him imprisoned.
He, Chun Yu Feng, was still a disciple of the Chun Yu Clan. He had relatively high status, and could barely keep his life.
This time, during the wholesome interrogation by the Ying Shan Clan, all aristocratic clan disciples that had helped contacted Old Devil Nian Jiu were all killed! Many of those who did not have high statuses and conducted those dubious businesses, as long as they were suspected of being a subordinate of Qian Gan Xue, would either end up being imprisoned or sentenced to death.
During these three days, many aristocratic clan disciples living in Ardent Fire City had kept a low profile.
When they faced ordinary commoners, they would usually act recklessly and ostentatiously. They would only be fined for killing the commoners. Nevertheless, Old Mother Ying Shan would not be punished for killing them! Naturally, Old Mother Ying Shan would not randomly kill. There were some underlying rules between the Conferred Kings of Southern Cloud Nation.
Within Ardent Fire City, inside an underground cultivation room within an ordinary residence.
The black-robed devil master was currently seated cross-legged here. With how vast the Ardent Fire City was, it was impossible for every residence to be checked. And this place where the incarnation of the devil master hid had no contact with his servants at all.
“Becoming anxious? Turning crazy?”
“Why the need to become so furious over a single failed assassination?” The edges of his lips curled up, “Marquis Ardent Fire, you truly cannot control your temper.”
He closed his eyes and remained seated cross-legged until he fell asleep.
To him… this was merely him greeting Marquis Ardent Fire.
