Chapter 874 – Truly Impudent
“Direct descendant… Have a god level elder as father…
“So what, you think your status is honorable? When compared to me, what is even your status? You have a god as father, while I have an ancient god as adoptive father? You only have a half god cultivation, while I am a god.”
After saying that much, Li Yunmu stopped and took a sip from the teacup. Once he opened it, a small amount of steam was emitted. From behind it, his gaze was fixed on Luo Jue’s malevolent expression.
Madam and Do Mingyan looked at Luo Jue with a hint of disdain on their faces. Sure enough, being pampered and spoiled by a father who was a god made him brave enough to be impudent. Even when the four great clans possessed the authority in Asura City, they still didn’t dare to be impudent in front of any ancestor.
What was more, the ancestors of the four great clans were all dead. AsuraCity was thus under the control of the city lord and the sixth ancestor, so by being so impudent, Luo Jue was being way too reckless.
It was completely ridiculous.
“You think that just because you became the sixth ancestor, you can hold the authority of Asura City with one hand? Your god level cultivation is only because god father used a portion of power of belief to raise it, so you are the weakest type of god!
“You are responsible for controlling the lower city right now, but you dared to publicly raise a hand against me, a direct descendant of the four great clans! You think that the city lord and the four great clans will let you go scot-free?”
Luo Jue was gasping for breath, but suddenly, a baffling smile appeared on his face, and he coldly said, “Your actions will provoke a civil war in Asura City. Since the two mortals offended me earlier, even if I had killed them, it wouldn’t have been excessive. The reason why they were left alive was completely because of you.”
“Because of me…” Li Yunmu muttered, and the tea cup he was holding with both hands trembled slightly.
“You really think you are… someone great. I am the ancestor of the Ground Clan, so a direct descendant like you needs to give me face. You have beaten the descendants of the Ground Clan in their own territory, so even if the four clan patriarchs and the city lord come to save you, it will be useless.”
After saying that, Li Yunmu gestured toward the two people standing by Luo Jue’s side. Rat understood his meaning, and a divine presence erupted from his weak figure. Strands of divine energy congealed in his left hand, and he placed it on Luo Jue’s head.
The strands of divine energy, once they touched the top of Luo Jue’s head, drilled inside like tentacles. The next instant, Luo Jue, with a malevolent expression and his five senses sealed, instantly issued a blood curdling scream.
“Ground Clan isn’t the same as the four great clans. There is no division among direct and branch family descendants here. All the descendants are important. Previously, we came to pay you a visit as the envoys of the Ground Clan.”
A sneer appeared on Rat’s face, and divine power bubbled forth from the hand he had placed on Luo Jue’s head, while a mysterious sensation appeared in the crack in the small packet on his head.
“But before we could say anything, you attacked and suppressed us, then tormented us until we were about to breathe our last. Now, you even think that by relying on your identity as a direct descendant, you can act impudently in front of the sixth ancestor! Who do you think you are?”
As he spoke, divine power rushed out of his hand and covered the top of Luo Jue’s skull. The divine energy, which had drilled into his body, recklessly spread through his flesh and meridians, destroying everything it passed through.
Another blood curdling scream echoed, and red blood began to flow out of Luo Jue’s pores. In an instant, he was covered in crimson from top to bottom.
“In Asura City, branch family descendants remain servants their whole lifetime and have to work torturously for direct descendants. This rule has been passed down from ancient times. Even if god father adopted a branch family descendant as his sixth son, that is only to maintain the equilibrium of Asura City,” Luo Jue shouted out with arrogance between his screams.
The reason why he had dared to attack Rat and Old Bastard was not only because of his pride as a direct descendant, but he had also heard from his father that the four great clans and the city lord had joined hands to deal with the famous sixth ancestor backed by god father.
Since he was already someone who was about to die, Luo Jue naturally wouldn’t place the sixth ancestor in his eyes. The way he saw it, Chen Xiu was only a somewhat lucky branch family descendant. Due to the rebellion of the four great clans, he was raised to a place of power by god father to balance things out.
But god father had entered seclusion, so the four great clans naturally wouldn’t allow Chen Xiu to really exercise his control over half of Asura City.
When Rat and Old Bastard heard the speech, they smiled at each other. Li Yunmu’s expression also remained calm, without the slightest hint of anger. Only madam and Do Mingyan, standing behind him, became gloomy.
If the two of them were placed on the same level as Luo Jue, they could guarantee that they wouldn’t be any inferior compared to him. But if they wanted to blame something, they could only blame their bloodline for not being pure enough, which resulted in them being unable to contest for power of belief to become gods. They could only remain stuck at half god level the rest of their lives.
Although half gods were formidable, it was nothing in front of gods. Before them, there was no difference in the different layers of sage flux expert realm. In the end, all of them were ants.
“Luo Jue, you are a direct descendant, but haven’t you fallen in the hands of lord ancestor. How can you still dare to be so sharp mouthed? The four clans have long ago negotiated with the sixth ancestor and divided their territories to avoid the appearance of someone like you.”
Do Mingyan’s gaze focused, and he spoke in a gloomy tone. The moment he finished, madam standing by his side also spoke up.
“Precisely. Do you really think that the people of the four great clan or that father of yours could save you? The division between direct and branch descendants of Asura City is a thing of the past. The new system is the division of territory, and since you violated the sixth ancestor’s territory, no one can save you.”
Luo Jue sneered at them despite all the meridians in his body having been crippled and his bones and flesh quickly turning into ashes under Rat’s divine power. He had stopped feeling pain long ago and was just clinging to life by relying on the formidable soul of a half god.
“Since I have already offended him, why isn’t the sixth ancestor killing me? Don’t tell me he is afraid, ha ha ha ha ha.”
Luo Jue smiled with savageness, but Li Yunmu’s expression remained as calm as before, as if those words didn’t bother him in the slightest.
The reason why he allowed Rat and Old Bastard to torment Luo Jue was to let the two of them vent their anger and to establish his might. After god father entered seclusion, the four clans began to get restless, thinking of seizing his authority back for themselves. They were also thinking about snatching the five portions of belief from his hands.
Since they were getting restless, they had to be forced to retreat using strength. A lesson would teach the four great clans, who still considered themselves to be the rulers, the fear of consequences.
At that moment, one after another, divine presences erupted in the sky. They were followed by gods descending on the house. They were led by the four clan patriarchs.
Li Yunmu stood up and looked at the gods of the four great clans, who seemed to be around twenty in number. The four clan patriarchs had gathered as well, so only City Lord Ashbi was missing.
“What, are the four clans also thinking of rebelling? Twenty gods running into my territory… you really treat Asura City as your home,” Li Yunmu said with a smile while handing the teacup to madam.
