Chapter 484: Zhong Lin’s Death
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Zhao Ming had a gloomy expression as he looked hatefully at Duan Ling Tian, and the ghastly killing intent in his eyes was difficult to restrain.
However, he didn’t dare act rashly at this moment.
Since that mysterious expert had already said the word that he wanted to protect everyone within the territory of the Crimson Sky Kingdom…
At this moment, no matter how much he wanted to kill Duan Ling Tian and how much he didn’t want to leave, he had no other way.
Before the mysterious expert, he could only compromise!
“Duan Ling Tian, you can hole up like a turtle in the Crimson Sky Kingdom for your entire life… Otherwise, I, Zhao Ming, will absolutely not let you off!” Zhao Ming swept Duan Ling Tian with his cold and indifferent gaze in the end, then intended to leave.
“Then I’ll wait and see.” Duan Ling Tian smiled indifferently, and he seemed to not mind in the slightest.
Zhao Ming’s body trembled and the flames of rage on his enraged expression seemed as if it was scorching to the limit…
He didn’t flare up in the end, and left in a sorry state with Tang Huo and Zhong Lin.
The three great sixth level Void Initiation Stage experts came hastily and left hastily.
They didn’t manage to accomplish anything, and it was equivalent to coming for nothing.
“Hu!” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but heave a sigh of relief, and he thanked towards the sky. “Thank you senior, for lending a hand.”
But unfortunately, the voice of that mysterious expert didn’t appear once again… And it caused Duan Ling Tian to feel that everything seemed like a dream.
Of course, he knew that everything wasn’t a dream.
There was indeed an expert with an extremely terrifying strength existing within the Crimson Sky Kingdom…
“I never imaged that these would be such a terrifying existence within this tiny Crimson Sky Kingdom.” At this moment, Qin Xiang had an astonished expression as well.
She was completely shocked by the ability of that expert from before.
“Perhaps, the strength of that expert isn’t inferior to Big Sister.” Qin Xiang took a deep breath and slowly calmed down her mood, then looked at Duan Ling Tian.
“Duan Ling Tian, was Elder Ming speaking the truth earlier? You really crippled his grandson, Zhao Ke?” Qin Xiang asked Duan Ling Tian in bewilderment.
As far as she was concerned, Duan Ling Tian ought to not be the type of person that was unreasonable, and there was surely something hidden within the facts.
“Kind of.” Duan Ling Tian shrugged, and he rubbed the little gold mouse’s enlarged head as he slowly spoke of the matter between him and Zhao Lin.
He didn’t conceal anything as he spoke.
In the end, Qin Xiang came to a sudden understanding. “So that’s how it is… In this way, it’s that Zhao Lin that brought it upon himself! However, the cultivation method you fabricated, those words that played a trick on others, is indeed slightly…” As she finished speaking, Qin Xiang didn’t know how to continue.
To think this little fellow was able to think of such a thing.
Duan Ling Tian rubbed his nose in embarrassment, then laughed embarrassedly. “I didn’t think too much at that time, and I just felt that it was fun… Unexpectedly, they actually really…”
A Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll that he fabricated had crippled the most precious thing possessed by Zhao Lin’s son.
This was something that Duan Ling Tian had never expected.
At the northern area of the Crimson Sky Kingdom, three figure flew swiftly in the sky and directly arrived at the border of the Crimson Sky Kingdom before slowing down.
These three people were obviously Zhao Ming’s group of three who had fled in a sorry state from the skies above the Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Imperial City.
The three aged figures stood in the sky and looked at each other, and they could all see the shock in each other’s eyes.
“That expert is too terrifying!” Zhong Lin had a slight lingering fear in his heart as he spoke.
“The Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s territory is ahead… Should we first leave the Crimson Sky Kingdom and pass the border between the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom and the Crimson Sky Kingdom before discussing about that expert?” Tang Huo took a deep breath and glanced at the Crimson Sky Kingdom, and he was slightly afraid as he spoke.
Tang Huo’s words caused Zhao Ming and Zhong Lin to be unable to refrain from shaking their heads.
Zhao Ming just wanted to mock Tang Huo when Zhong Lin had spoken out before him. “Tang Huo, you’re going backwards the more you live… Undeniably, that expert is indeed extremely formidable. However, how far are we from the Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Imperial City? Could it be that you think that expert would be able to know that we didn’t leave the Crimson Sky Kingdom?”
Zhao Ming nodded as he deeply agreed.
Tang Huo laughed in self-ridicule when he heard this, and he felt that perhaps he was really too sensitive.
Even if it was an expert at the Void Transformation Stage, the expert would probably be unable to monitor them over such a great distance…
Unless the expert really had nothing to do and followed them.
However, was this possible?
Tang Huo asked himself this question, and he felt that the three of them ought to not have such a great honor as to be followed by the expert.
Right at this moment, a terrifying imposing aura suddenly condensed into form in the sky before descending onto the three of them, and it caused the three of them who’d just caught their breaths to go pale.
They were too familiar with this imposing aura.
“Se… Senior!” Tang Huo’s face was ghastly pale. Earlier, he was thinking that the expert that protected the Crimson Sky Kingdom ought to not go to the extent of following them.
But now it would seem that the facts weren’t so.
It was very likely that the expert had followed behind them and monitored them to see if they would be obedient and leave. And now, they didn’t leave obediently.
A trace of despair emerged within his heart, and Zhao Ming and Zhong Lin had almost similar feelings…
Zhong Lin had an expression of regret.
Zhao Ming instead glared at Zhong Lin, as if he’d completely forgotten that his thoughts earlier were similar to Zhong Lin.
“Looks like… The three of you took my words in one ear and let it out from the other! Since it’s like this, then I can only carry out slight punishment and make all of you remember well.” The cold, indifferent, and hoarse voice seemed to sweep out from all directions.
For a time, the atmosphere in the entire sky seemed to become slightly strange.
“Senior spare me, Senior spare me!” Tang Huo had a ghastly pale expression as his body shivered. Although that formidable imposing aura didn’t completely suppress him, he didn’t dare make the slightest movement.
He knew clearly in his heart that if he dared flee then he would die for sure!
This was something that he didn’t doubt in the slightest.
“Senior, spare me!” Zhao Ming and Zhong Lin’s expressions were extremely unsightly, and their eyes were filled with boundless fear.
Before today, they practically wouldn’t dare believe that with their strengths, they would actually repeatedly beg for mercy before the same person in a tiny little kingdom.
However, they understood that if they didn’t beg for mercy, they would die for sure!
“Earlier, it was you that questioned my methods?” The hoarse voice was filled with ghastly coldness as it sounded out.
At the same time, the air above Zhong Lin roiled as the airflow swept out, seeming to have transformed into circle after circle of ripples that spread out…
Whereas at the center of the rippled, the air was compressed, and the clouds and mist roiled.
A violet colored bolt of lightning that was thick like a water bucket appeared out of thin air, then struck straight down towards Zhong Lin’s head.
Zhao Ming and Tang Huo only felt something flash before their eyes.
In practically an instant, before their thoughts even had the time to finishing spinning, they noticed that Zhong Lin who stood nearby had vanished without a trace.
Whereas that bolt of violet colored lightning that was as thick as a water bucket had vanished as well.
Zhong Lin’s aura had completely vanished.
There was only one possibility…
Zhong Lin had died.
Tang Huo and Zhao Ming’s countenance that were already ghastly pale were now pale like a sheet of paper, and their bodies trembled even more intensely.
“Senior, spare me! Earlier, it was that Zhong Lin who encouraged us to stay behind. Otherwise, we would have done according to your request and left the Crimson Sky Kingdom far away since long ago.” Tang Huo hastily begged for mercy, then he looked around in the surroundings, attempting to find the tracks of the mysterious expert.
However, no matter how he searched, he didn’t discover a trace of the mysterious expert.
That expert seemed as if he wasn’t in the surroundings at all.
“Yeah, Senior… So long as you’re willing to spare our lives, we’ll leave right away, we’ll leave right away!” Zhao Ming was afraid as well, completely afraid.
Zhong Lin was similar to him, they were both Guardian Elders of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect, and Zhong Lin’s strength wasn’t inferior to him.
But an existence like this didn’t even have the time to react when he was obliterated in the blink of an eye, and it caused Zhao Ming to be unable to refrain from feeling terrified.
“If the both of you dare take half a step into the Crimson Sky Kingdom during your lifetimes, I’ll surely annihilate the both of you!” The cold, indifferent, and hoarse voice was matchlessly overbearing. “F**k off!”
When they heard the cold shout of the mysterious expert, Tang Huo and Zhao Ming felt a sense of relief, and they hurriedly flew towards the north, leaving the Crimson Sky Kingdom’s territory in the blink of an eye and entering the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
After entering into the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, the two of them continuously flew another length of distance, and they only stopped after an hour.
The two of them looked at each other and saw the boundless terror in each other’s eyes.
They secretly resolved in their hearts that no matter what happened in the future, they wouldn’t take a single step into the Crimson Sky Kingdom…
The warning of the mysterious expert from before had rooted itself and bloomed within their hearts…
“Looks like if we want to force Duan Ling Tian to take us to the location of the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk in the future, we can only wait for him to leave the Crimson Sky Kingdom.” After Tang Huo calmed down his mind after getting his life back, he frowned.
Obviously, Tang Huo hadn’t forgotten the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk Duan Ling Tian spoke of until now.
“I don’t believe he’s able to hide within the Crimson Sky Kingdom forever!” Zhao Ming gnashed his teeth, and he was enraged to the limit.
The hatred he harbored towards Duan Ling Tian was difficult to be reached by an outsider.
“Now, we can only hope that the location of the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk isn’t in the Crimson Sky Kingdom.” Tang Huo suddenly thought of a problem, and a wisp of worry appeared on his face.
“Hmph! About the matter of the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, let’s wait for Duan Ling Tian to leave the Crimson Sky Kingdom and we’ll capture him before talking about it… Otherwise, everything would only be a daydream.” Zhao Ming grunted.
“Elder Ming, the matter with the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, you…” Tang Huo looked at Zhao Ming and spoke with a serious expression.
However, he hadn’t finished speaking when he was interrupted by Zhao Ming. “Don’t worry! I’m not stupid to the point of sharing the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk with others… The less amount of people that know of this, the more beneficial it is to us! The 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk requires a certain amount to be able to assist us to improve our natural talent to the limit.”
Tang Huo hadn’t finished speaking when Zhao Ming had already guessed his thoughts.
“Earlier, Zhong Lin almost trapped us in as well… However, it’s good that he’s dead, as the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk needed can be reduced by one person’s portion.” Tang Huo didn’t have any fluctuation in his feelings when he mentioned Zhong Lin being killed by the mysterious expert, but when he finished speaking, he revealed slight delight.
