Chapter 1283 – Venting out his anger
“How do I want to deal with him?” Xue Ying looked at Bat Mountain Master.
“We will act according to how Brother Flying Snow wishes to.” Bat Mountain Master transmitted back.
Xue Ying felt that this Bat Mountain Master did not have any ‘pride seeped in his bones’ as an expert. But even though Bat Mountain Master did not have this pride, it did not alter the fact that the other party was one of the numerous experts in High Mountain City. It was hard for Xue Ying to handle the other party prior to using his ‘Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm’! And after probing through the memories, Xue Ying had never heard of anybody who was incredibly talented in soul techniques, at least in High Mountain City.
Hence, Xue Ying would not use his soul technique when dealing with any experts! Because the moment he did so, this news would leak and he would no longer be having any peaceful days after that.
“I wish to meet this Tie Cheng Liu first.” Xue Ying transmitted back.
“Good good good. That Tie Cheng Liu is currently at my Bat Mountain.” Bat Mountain Master was being incredibly cordial.
Both parties then left Floating Mountain Palace for Bat Mountain.
Bat Mountain occupied a relatively huge area within High Mountain City. It had a chain of structures and a large number of subordinates.
Inside a huge palace.
Xue Ying entered with Bat Mountain Master. There was already several God Monarchs waiting inside.
“Why aren’t you all greeting God Monarch Flying Snow?” The moment Bat Mountain Master entered, he shouted.
“Greetings, God Monarch Flying Snow.” These God Monarchs bowed politely.
The higher-ups of Bat Mountain had heard of it before. Their leader, ‘Bat Mountain Master’ actually lost to God Monarch Flying Snow by an entire level during the spar! Bat Mountain Master was injured despite transforming into his ‘Bat Dragon Form’. And God Monarch Flying Snow remained perfectly fine! This made they, who respected ‘Bat Mountain Master’, similarly reverent of God Monarch Flying Snow.
“Brother Flying Snow, hurry up, have a seat.” Bat Mountain Master enthusiastically urged Xue YIng over. Both he and Xue Ying were seated at the highest throne positions.
After getting seated, Bat Mountain Master roared out: “Bring that Tie Cheng Liu over!”
Tie Cheng Liu was brought over. He was currently shackled. As he moved, he staggered and stumbled. He was pale and was soon chained to the great hall. Looking up, he saw both Bat Mountain Master seated with Xue Ying at the throne positions.
“How could this be?” Tie Cheng Liu was stunned.
Did Bat Mountain Master not sent experts over to assassinate God Monarch Flying Snow? Did he not lose three powerful God Monarchs in the process? Given such huge losses, both parties should have become enemies. Why would Bat Mountain Master invite God Monarch Flying Snow over, and even ask him to sit at the highest position?
He was clear how grave the loss was to ‘Bat Mountain’ when three God Monarchs died. These days, he had been tortured really pitifully, and was clear how furious Bat Mountain was.
“I originally wanted to sentence you to death.” Bat Mountain Master looked down and said with a cold, hoarse voice, “But Brother Flying Snow wishes to meet you. That is why you survived until now.”
“Brother Flying Snow?” Tie Cheng Liu felt his heart becoming filled with rage when he heard that.
Bat Mountain Master! You are a great expert publicly acknowledged as one of the top ten rankers in High Mountain City. After losing three God Monarchs, you still called the ‘murderer’ your brother? Do you even care about your reputation?
“Tie Cheng Liu, I doubt we have ever met before we encounter each other on that ship.” Xue Ying said.
“We are total strangers.” Tie Cheng Liu muttered.
“I doubt we have ever become enemies before.” Xue Ying asked.
“Indeed we haven’t.” Tie Cheng Liu nodded.
“We haven’t even spoken a single sentence prior to today as well.” Xue Ying continued.
“Yes.” Tie Cheng Liu acknowledged.
On the ship, Xue Ying relied on his Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm to boost his charm. Only a select few did not have any favorable feelings towards Xue Ying. And out of everyone, only this Tie Cheng Liu showed dislike towards Xue Ying. Xue Ying did not care about it either in the past.
“You haven’t even spoken a single word with Brother Flying Snow yet you wish for his death?” Bat Mountain Master could not help but commented on this.
“That’s right. I am curious about this matter too.” Xue Ying looked at Tie Cheng Liu, “Is it because of your Junior Disciple Sister?”
The moment Tie Cheng Liu heard the words ‘Junior Disciple Sister’, his expression became ugly. Madness filled his eyes as he sneered at Xue Ying: “God Monarch Flying Snow is really acute.”
Xue Ying nodded.
He knew after probing through the memories that there had been an Ascendant that came previously to the High Mountain City. And at that time, three came at once! A male brought along two wives with him. One man and two women, they were all Ascendants. That male Ascendant was called ‘God Monarch Dong Fang’, and both his wives were incredibly outstanding and beautiful. They had stayed within the High Mountain City for an incredibly long period.
At that time, Tie Cheng Liu had a junior disciple sister called ‘God Monarch Xiao Shuang’ who was once saved by ‘God Monarch Dong Fang’. Furthermore, both parties gradually became closer and eventually, God Monarch Dong Fang announced that he would be marrying God Monarch Xiao Shuang.
God Monarch Xiao Shuang was also an early stage God Monarch.
Instead, ‘Tie Cheng Liu’ who was a Senior Disciple Brother, was merely at the peak stage God General Realm! He was weaker by an entire level. Tie Cheng Liu had completely fallen for his junior disciple sister, though it was unrequited.
After God Monarch Dong Fang wedded ‘God Monarch Xiao Shuang’, Tie Cheng Liu began harboring hatred. He began selling his treasures to purchase poison and sought to poison God Monarch Dong Fang! God Monarch Dong Fang was even injured as a result. But as a form of respect for God Monarch Xiao Shuang, he did not kill Tie Cheng Liu. Instead, he sealed the strength of Tie Cheng Liu completely, hanging him on a flagpole within a pub in High Mountain City for a full three days. During this period, nobody dared to release Tie Cheng Liu.
“She is my Junior Disciple Sister!” Tie Cheng Liu gritted his teeth, “That time, my father accepted her and taught her how to cultivate. That is how she could reach where she is currently. She is originally mine. It is that God Monarch Dong Fang who was so shameless and despicable that he stole my wife.”
“She isn’t your wife. God Monarch Xiao Shuang has never regarded you highly at all.” Bat Mountain Master sneered.
“If not for my father, would she have this day?” The eyes of Tie Cheng Liu became red, “My father fell in the Great Wilderness, yet she has entirely forgotten about him!”
“God Monarch Xiao Shuang has never forgotten about it. She had helped you time after time. God Monarch Dong Fang even treated you relatively well, giving you the chance to poison him.” Bat Mountain Master grinned, “And in the end, God Monarch Dong Fang even softened and gave you a route of survival.”
“What route of survival? This shameless and despicable person…” Tie Cheng Liu became even madder after that.
“Is this related to me?” Xue Ying suddenly said.
Tie Cheng Liu glared at Xue Ying: “You and he are both Ascendants!”
Xue Ying felt speechless.
Previously, he pondered over this issue and could only think of this reason. But it felt too exaggerated.
This Tie Cheng Liu hated the Ascendant ‘God Monarch Dong Fang’, and it actually implicated him?
“All you Ascendants know how to entice girls. At that time, those female attendants and even Third Lady treated you with passion.” Tie Cheng Liu gritted his teeth.
“Truly a madman.” Xue Ying shook his head. Now that he ascertained the reason why the other party wanted his death, he was no longer interested in hearing his ramble. He simply said, “Bat Mountain Master, kill him.”
“Good.” When Bat Mountain Master heard that, he answered cleanly.
He initially thought this God Monarch Flying Snow would be like the previous Ascendant ‘God Monarch Dong Fang’, benevolently giving Tie Cheng Liu a path of survival.
“Kill me?” Tie Cheng Liu became even madder as if he wanted to say something.
Bat Mountain Master merely glanced at him. Endless frost began condensing around Tie Cheng Liu, freezing him into a huge block of ice several meters tall. Following that, this ice piece shattered, causing Tie Cheng Liu to turn into pieces.
In terms of statuses, Bat Mountain Master had a relatively high status in High Mountain City. Even Young Master Imperial Wind Lei treated him politely and with respect.
And this ‘Tie Cheng Liu’ was merely an ordinary guard. He was not even a disciple of the Imperial Wind Clan! When his father was around, it was still fine. But now, his father died. His Junior Disciple Sister ‘God Monarch Xiao Shuang’ left along with God Monarch Dong Fang a while ago. Bat Mountain Master naturally had no apprehensions.
The matter of Tie Cheng Liu had rendered Xue Ying relatively speechless.
‘That God Monarch Dong Fang is seeking death for not killing this madman.’ Xue Ying shook his head. As for Bat Mountain, even though he did not have any good feelings for Bat Mountain! Firstly, he did kill three God Monarchs of Bat Mountain without suffering from any losses. Secondly, he did not wish to reveal his terrifying soul technique because of this Bat Mountain. And Bat Mountain Master had treated him really cordially. The other party was ‘shameless’ enough to make amends with him by lowering his position. Hence, Xue Ying decided to forget about this matter thereafter.
High Mountain City, within Xue Ying’s new residence.
After the display of his strength, Young Master Imperial Wind Lei no longer treated him similarly as in the past. He even bestowed upon Xue Ying a luxurious residence covering a huge area of 50 kilometers and a large number of female attendants and servants. To Young Master Imperial Wind Lei, he would definitely be doing all he could to pull in even a new expert like Xue Ying given the impending doom his clan was facing. As long as it was someone who knew how to repay favors, he would definitely do his utmost to fend off the enemies in times of crisis.
The following days were quiet.
Other than God Monarchs visiting him continuously and this disciple of his, ‘Imperial Wind Qing Yin’ coming over to seek guidance from him, Xue Ying had always remained in meditation, comprehending the laws of the Dao of Void of this world.
