Chapter 873 – Gasps of Surprise
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The misery in the person’s voice shook the hears of the half god Do Mingyan and madam. It belonged to the master of the fifth household, and both of them were very clear about his identity.
Madam knew the man because of his constant pestering, while Do Mingyan knew him because the master of that house was the only direct descendant among them. Furthermore, he was also the son of a god level elder.
The matter of a direct descendant not riding roughshod on the people in the clan and enjoying the glory, splendor, and wealth, but rather running to the middle city was already very strange. After a long time, everyone heard about some rumors in regards to that.
They said that Luo Jue’s mind was twisted and that he had tortured his servants as well as branch family descendants, which was unpleasing to the eye. After experiencing treatment at his hands, the person would be left at last breath.
Another rumor was that he had come to the middle city because his father, a god, had lost in a contest to obtain power of belief to assist him in becoming a god, so in a fit of anger, the son had moved out.
While standing at the gate, Li Yunmu suddenly turned to Do Mingyan and madam to say, “Do you know who is the master of this house?”
“I know, this household’s master is Rahu Clan’s direct descendant, and his father is a god. In the middle city, he tyrannically abused everyone. Could it be then that the envoys dispatched by lord were also…”
When madam heard the blood-curdling scream once more, she could make a good guess.
Among the households they had passed, only she and Do Mingyan were slightly punished by Li Yunmu for their treatment of his envoys. As for the other two household, Li Yunmu killed their masters without giving them a chance to explain themselves.
Luo Jue had issued a miserable shriek, so he had also definitely tortured the two dispatched envoys, which was why he had received torture in return.
When Do Mingyan heard the voice, he turned to look at his dangling arms and rejoiced in his heart. Fortunately, he had only blown away the two envoys dispatched by Li Yunmu.
Madam looked at Li Yunmu from behind and slightly leaned towards Do Mingyan. “Lord is here, so who exactly is torturing Luo Jue?”
After hearing that, doubt appeared in Do Mingyan’s heart. The Ground Clan was formed recently, so apart from the lord who was a god, the others were all mortals.
Luo Jue was a direct descendant with half god cultivation, so he was much more difficult to deal with compared to the branch family descendants. Only those with the cultivation of a god could capture Luo Jue or perhaps two half god level powerhouses.
Regardless of whether it was gods or half gods, the Ground Clan didn’t have any of them. If there were, they wouldn’t have dispatched two mortals as envoys to negotiate.
Then who was it?
“Let’s go, we will enter and see. We need to wait for the four clan patriarchs,” Li Yunmu said while going through the gate.
Do Mingyan closely followed behind him while madam said in an earnest tone to Xuan Ren, who was hiding behind her and wanted to go in front, “You mustn’t look or participate in the lord’s matters. We have joined to become Ground Clan’s descendants, so you go and see what the other descendants in the colosseum are doing.”
Indignance appeared on Xuan Ren’s face at her words. Why only she wasn’t allowed to enter? However, her attention was soon attracted by the idea of the Ground Clan’s descendants in the colosseum, and she nodded before rushing off in another direction.
Madam watched Xuan Ren’s figure disappear in the street, then turned around and went through the gate. Once she crossed the threshold, she saw Do Mingyan standing motionless in the courtyard and became suspicious.
Two formidable god level presences could be felt within the master hall, and they enveloped the entire house. Madam had seen Li Yunmu’s divine presence, so she could naturally distinguish it, and the two divine presences did not belong to him.
When had two gods appeared in the Ground Clan?
Madam advanced forward and stood alongside Do Mingyan to look at the scene up ahead. All of a sudden, she was startled and revealed an incredulous expression.
In the hall, a man with a tall and sturdy stature and wearing exquisite clothes was held by his shoulders. Rat and Old Bastard were twisting his arms in the opposite direction, and it was as easy as snapping a twig in two.
The crisp sound of bone shattering soon echoed in the hall.
“Ahhhh!” Luo Jue screamed miserably.
The pain from the shoulders turned his face into a mess. From time to time, he erupted with half god presence to struggle away, but Rat and Old Bastard stood next to him. They coldly smiled and erupted with divine presence, completely suppressing him.
“This…. What is this situation?”
Do Mingyan was at a loss. Regardless of whether it was Luo Jue’s miserable state or Rat and Old Bastard’s cultivation, everything gave him an extreme shock.
The two envoys whom he had met just recently had become gods in the blink of an eye, while he bitterly cultivated for such a long time and had barely become a half god.
Madam’s gaze focused, and her expression turned strange. The two mortals were clearly given two portions of power of belief.
When the four great clans controlled Asura City, each of them only received two portions of power of belief every year.
The division of two portions had also been established long ago. God elders of the Elder Council would receive half a portion while ancestor would receive one portion. The remaining half was put away by the patriarch. It was preserved for the use of direct descendants or the young masters to become gods.
As for the remaining bit and pieces, apart from young master who could directly advance to godhood, the other direct descendants would fight for those. As for the branch family descendants, there was no chance for them, which created the ceiling for branch family descendants’ cultivation, and it was at half god realm.
Yet the sixth ancestor had directly used two portions of power of belief to raise the cultivation of two mortals to god level. That was really… prodigal.
Soon though, a hint of excitement appeared in the eyes of madam and Do Mingyan. Since the mortals had even obtained power of belief to become gods, they only needed to display their worth to the maximum to receive the same treatment. Even if they didn’t get a full portion, just one-eighth would be enough for them to advance to god realm.
Li Yunmu entered the hall, pulled a chair in front of Luo Jue, and sat down on it. Madam tacitly understood what he planned and entered the hall too. She then moved to Li Yunmu’s side with a cup of tea.
When Do Mingyan’s returned from wandering about future possibilities and he saw madam’s movement, regret filled him that his movements were really slow. While thinking that, he quickly walked to stand behind Li Yunmu as well. Half of his arms were just dangling in the air, but he didn’t feel the slightest resentment.
When Li Yunmu looked at Luo Jue whose hands had become a mess, a smile appeared on his face and he asked, “How does it feel to be tormented by others?”
Old Bastard and Rat released Luo Jue’s arms and pressed their hands on his shoulder. Luo Jue looked at his arms with a malevolent expression, then raised his head to look at Li Yunmu.
“My father is a god!” he said while gnashing his teeth. “I am a direct descendant of Rahu Clan! Even if you are the sixth ancestor, since you sent the two servants to deal with me, the four great clans and the city lord won’t let you have an easy time.”
