Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Why should you believe me?” Zhao Ji was momentarily taken aback when he heard Xu Jings’s words before he calmly replied, “Well, you can only believe me since you have no other choice!”
Initially, Zhao Ji had thought Xu Jing would panic after hearing his words and would be led by the nose by him.
Who knew his words did not affect Xu Jing at all. “No choice? So be it. Put aside that Ling Tian might not even be Li Feng’s Junior Brother, even if he really is, the one I want to seek revenge from is Li Feng. Although I’ll be happy if Ling Tian dies, it means nothing to me the moment I think of how Li Feng is still alive.” Xu Jing was extremely calm. It was as though he did not care whether Li Feng’s Junior Brother, Ling Tian, was dead or alive.
Zhao Ji was dumbfounded. It was apparent that everything was progressing differently from what he had in mind.
It should not be like this!
“You want to use Ling Tian in exchange for my Devouring Dark Devil Technique? That’s just wishful thinking! If I’m not mistaken, you’re just worried the people from Mystical Sky Mansion will hide the Devouring Dark Devil Technique and forbid people from cultivating it after they discover this through the Soul Searching Secret Tactic, right?” Xu Jing continued to say to Zhao Ji through Voice Transmission, “You want to obtain the Devouring Dark Devil Technique from me because you want to cultivate it despite knowing the world will condemn you! I can’t believe the noble son of the Vice Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion would choose such a corrupt method for the sake of power!”
“As expected of the Young Mansion Master of Rising Sky Mansion. You’re smart!” Zhao Ji’s expression was extremely grim. However, the only chance of him obtaining the Devouring Dark Devil Technique was in front of him, he was unwilling to give up.
Once the Soul Searching Secret Tactic was performed on Xu Jing, the Devouring Dark Devil Technique would be revealed to the others as well.
At that time, Meng Qing, the Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion, would definitely seal and destroy the Devouring Dark Devil Technique. He would not allow anyone to cultivate it.
Although the cultivation method of the Devouring Dark Devil Technique was inhumane, to Zhao Ji, power was the most important thing. The ways to obtain power, to him, did not matter to him at all.
For this reason, he was desperate to obtain the Devouring Dark Devil Technique.
“Tell me. What do I have to do for you to pass the Devouring Dark Devil Technique to me?” Zhao Ji asked without beating around the bush after he took a deep breath.
“It’s very easy if you want me to pass the Devouring Dark Devil Technique to you. If you get me out of here, I’ll slowly pass the Devouring Dark Devil Technique to you,” Xu Jing stated his condition through his Voice Transmission.
“Impossible!” Zhao Ji did not expect Xu Jing to make such a ridiculous demand.
Get Xu Jing out of here?
What a joke!
Even if he was the grandson of Zhao Jin, the Guardian of Mystical Sky Mansion and the son of Zhao Deng, the Vice Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion, it was still impossible for him to save Xu Jing and get him out of here unless his grandfather or father was willing to help him.
However, this was impossible.
Zhao Ji knew very well that although his grandfather and father doted on him a lot, they would instantly stop him if he said he wanted to cultivate the Devouring Dark Devil Technique.
It was not that his grandfather and father were compassionate people. It was because they would worry that he would become the public’s enemy after he cultivated the Devouring Dark Devil Technique.
The powerhouse who cultivated the Devouring Dark Devil Technique previously was someone everyone wanted to kill.
According to rumors, after he went to the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land, his life there was not any better. In the end, he could only tuck his tail between his legs and behave accordingly.
“If that’s the case, there’s no need for us to speak anymore. I’ll just wait for the Mystical Sky Mansion’s powerhouses to perform the Soul Searching Secret Tactic on me after my soul recovers.” Xu Jing continued to transmit his voice to Zhao Ji. Based on his words, it seemed pretty bold as though he was a dead pig that did not fear boiling water.
“You should know it’s extremely difficult for me to save you with my strength… Can’t you change your condition?” Zhao Ji asked in a deep voice.
However, Xu Jing ignored him.
Xu Jing’s lack of response was also a type of response.
He was not going to change his condition.
If he could save him and get him out of here, he would be able to obtain the Devouring Dark Devil Technique.
If he could not, then he would not be able to obtain it.
After calling out to Xu Jing a few times, he still did not respond. Zhao Ji’s expression turned grim immediately.
“Ji’er, what’s wrong? Could it be that Xu Jing has responded when you transmitted your voice to him?” Zhao Deng’s eyes lit up, and there was a slightly excited expression on his face when he saw Zhao Ji’s expression suddenly turned grim.
The moment Zhao Deng spoke, Zhao Ji regained his senses. As though he was injected with a boost of courage, he raised his hand and smacked Xu Jing’s head. “Damn it! How dare you ignore me!”
“Ji’er, what’re you doing?!” Zhao Deng was horrified when he saw his son’s action. He quickly made a move to stop Zhao Ji from attacking Xu Jing.
“Are you crazy? If you kill him, not only would Lord Mansion Master not let you go, but you’ll also make yourself the enemy of the group of high-ranking officials in the Mystical Sky Mansion! If that happens, you’ll have no chance of becoming the Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion at all no matter how high your achievements are!” Zhao Deng’s voice was filled with anger when he reached the end of his sentence.
“Father, I’m sorry.” Meanwhile, Zhao Ji seemed contrite as he lowered his head and accepted his father’s scolding and admitted his fault. “But, Father, he must be pretending to sleep! Although his soul is not intact, it shouldn’t stop him from communicating with people.”
When Zhao Ji reached the end of his sentence, he even had an aggrieved and indignant expression on his face as though he did not manage to communicate with Xu Jing at all.
He had acted this way because he did not want his father to know that he had successfully communicated with Xu Jing. After all, the topic of their conversation was objectionable.
Xu Jing who had remained quiet for a long time suddenly said mockingly through Voice Transmission, “As expected of Young Master Zhao Ji. Look at how smoothly you lied to your father. If I’m your father, I’ll definitely be so angered that I’ll throw up three liters of blood if I find out about your lies!”
“Xu Jing, don’t be so smug! I might not be able to come up with a way to rescue you from here! If I can’t find a way, you’ll definitely die!” Zhao Ji transmitted his voice.
“If even Young Master Zhao Ji can’t come up with a way, then I guess I can only accept my fate,” Xu Jing said calmly as though he was not worried whether he lived or died. It was as though he was above all worldly affairs.
“Ji’er, there’s nothing we can do even if he’s faking it. Moreover, he won’t be able to fake it for long anyway. We’ll have to wait a year and a half at most before we perform the Soul Searching Secret Tactic on him. Once our Mystical Sky Mansion has obtained the Devil Dao Cultivation Method that he cultivated, his life would end as well.” Zhao Ji did not suspect his son at all. Instead, he took the initiative to calm his son down. “There’s no reason for you to fuss over a dead man.”
“Okay.” Zhao Ji nodded and put on an expression as though he agreed with his father before bidding him farewell. “Father, it’s not good for me to stay here for so long. I’ll take my leave first.”
“Sure, go ahead.” After Zhao Deng sent his son out of the secret underground, only then did he return.
Zhao Ji who had just left the secret underground room, on the other hand, was trying to come up with a way. “What kind of method can I use to rescue Xu Jing from the secret underground room in the Mystical Sky Mansion? No matter what, I must get my hands on the Devouring Dark Devil Technique! Once I’ve cultivated it, my strength will definitely rise quickly. Xu Jing’s innate talent is much inferior to mine, but it only took him a year to break through to the peak of the Refined Saint Stage from the Early Refined Saint Stage. If it were me, I definitely won’t fare any worse than him!”
Currently, Zhao Ji was completely obsessed with the Devouring Dark Devil Technique.
When Zhao Ji was racking his brain for ways to get Xu Jing out, Duan Ling Tian had just exited the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda and opened his room door.
As soon as he opened his door, his extended Divine Consciousness and immediately sensed someone spying on him in the dark. Moreover, there was more than one person.
“People from the Zhao Clan?” Apart from the Zhao Clan, Duan Ling Tian really could not think of anyone who would lurk in the dark and spy on him.
“You finally came out from closed-door cultivation!” Duan Ling Tian was about to look for Gu Li when a voice sounded.
The owner of the voice was a woman.
In the distant, the figure that accompanied the voice was a beautiful and graceful figure that was seductive with the appearance of an angel.
Everything seemed dim in her surrounding.
This person was none other than Wang Fei Xuan.
“Where have you been before this?” Duan Ling Tian smiled. “After the Saint Martial Secret Zone closed, you left with the Palace Master. I didn’t see you since then.”
“What? Did you miss me?” Wang Fei Xuan’s autumn eyes lit up immediately as it landed on Duan Ling Tian.
“No. I’m just not used to it… I’ll also find it hard to get used to if a fly that usually circles around me suddenly goes missing.” One must admit that Duan Ling Tian’s metaphor was very descriptive.
However, upon hearing his metaphor, Wang Fei Xuan’s expression turned grave immediately. “So, you’re saying… I’m a fly?”
“I didn’t say that.” Duan Ling Tian shrugged. “I’m not going to be responsible for you jumping to your own conclusion!”
Wang Fei Xuan glared at Duan Ling Tian in annoyance as she said, “I went to cultivate at the Spirit Pool some time ago. As expected of the Heaven Palace’s Spirit Pool, it’s indeed a great place! I feel like my cultivation base is close to breaking through to the Mastery Refined Saint Stage. I’ll definitely break through in a year or two! Naturally, if I can enter the Spirit Pool again within this year, I’m confident I’ll be able to successfully break through to the Mastery Refined Saint Stage in a year!”
When Wang Fei Xuan reached the end of her sentence, the confidence she emitted seemed to affect Duan Ling Tian as well.
“Congratulations!” Duan Ling Tian congratulated her.
He was very clear that Wang Fei Xuan who had been taken in by Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace, as his disciple would definitely have a smooth journey ahead. He was very happy for her from the bottom of his heart.
After all, he had already regarded her as his friend. It was only natural to be happy and concerned about one’s friend.
Wang Fei Xuan had been congratulated many times. However, when Duan Ling Tian congratulated her, it was as though she was bathed in a spring breeze.
