Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1158
Suing the Man at the Institute of Elders
“I’ll make a trip to the inner sect and ask brother Fang Hao if he can help in suppressing Jiang Chen.”
Wang Tao gritted his teeth, decided to carry Liang Hong back to Fang Hao in the inner sect. In his point of view, Fang Hao was a powerful mid Heaven Immortal expert. If he agreed to help, Jiang Chen would definitely be suppressed, but if he refused, they would be really out of options.
In the inner sect.
Inside a quiet courtyard, there was a white-clothed man that looked like twenty plus year old. He had a clean face and a brilliant pair of eyes. Currently, his attention was focused on the body that was lying motionlessly on the ground.
“Wang Tao, are you sure that dog used his mere head to cause Liang Hong such injuries?” Asked Fang Hao.
“Yes, brother Fang. We didn’t imagine that dog would be so ferocious, even more ferocious than Jiang Chen. Plus, both of their attitude were extremely arrogant, absolutely not putting us in their eyes and were lawless, like they had become the king of the outer sect.”
Wang Tao was disgruntled, but he had to admit the ability of Jiang Chen and Big Yellow. He told everything that happened on the scene without any attempting to hide anything.
“That’s a very powerful dog. Observe Liang Hong’s injuries. It showed that the dog held back his power. Which means this dog’s combat strength is relatively on par with mine.
Said Fang Hao. It was astonishing that an expert was able to tell one’s strength by just observing the injuries. This was also what shocked Fang Hao. Ever since Liang Hong entered the inner sect, he had been following him. He knew very well how strong Liang Hong was, but he couldn’t even stand one strike from Big Yellow. He was thinking of the possibility that he might not be Big Yellow’s opponent as well.
“No way. Even if this dog is very powerful, how can he have the same strength as brother Fang? I hope brother Fang can teach Jiang Chen and that dog a good lesson on behalf of all the outer sect disciples. In that case, brother Fang will build a great prestige in the outer sect which is very beneficial to the both of us.”
Wang Tao said pleadingly. He had no other choice. Ever since Jiang Chen entered the outer sect three days ago, it had caused the entire outer sect to fall into chaos. None of the existing disciple was able to cultivate. Every one of them was complaining incessantly. The whole situation had been filled with noises of complains.
“Wang Tao, I’m afraid that I’m not competent enough to teach those two a lesson.”
Fang Hao shook his head.
Wang Tao looked at Fang Hao with astonishment. If Fang Hao refused to interfere in this matter, did that mean he was allowing Jiang Chen to act as lawless as before? And could that mean that Fang Hao was afraid of Jiang Chen as well?
“It isn’t because I’m afraid of Jiang Chen. I can’t interfere in this matter for two reasons. Firstly, I already have an estimation of the dog’s strength. Even if I interfere in this matter personally, I may not be a match for him. To put it bluntly, if the unfortunate side happened – I would be defeated by a dog – wouldn’t it put me to shame. I can’t afford to let that happen. Even if I win, there’s nothing for me to be proud about. Secondly, I have already investigated the background of that Jiang Chen. He was recommended and brought here personally by Fu Hui. Fu Hui has very good connections in the inner sect. I don’t want to get into conflict with Fu Hui because of this.”
Said Fang Hao. These two reasons were straightforward and true, especially the first reason. If he chose to pick a fight with them, he must have the certainty that he would win. Once he lost the match, his reputation would surely fall drastically. He would then become a laughing stock in the whole inner sect. On the contrary, if he won the match, there was nothing for him to gain, because after all, he was a mid Heaven Immortal genius in the inner sect.
Adding the fact that Jiang Chen was personally recommended by Fu Hui, it deterred him even more from provoking Jiang Chen. Therefore, no matter from which angle it was viewed, he had all the reasons to not make a move.
“Ai! If brother Fang is not even willing to help, the whole outer sect will be ruled by Jiang Chen.”
Wang Tao couldn’t help but sigh. He wasn’t a fool. He understood the concerns of Fang Hao. Whether it was Jiang Chen or that dog, they were way too powerful. If he put himself into Fang Hao’s position, he too wouldn’t make a move.
Moreover, as a dignified inner sect disciple, it wouldn’t be a pleasant news for a mid Heaven Immortal expert to confront an outer sect disciple. They were the geniuses who should be working diligently in breaking through into the higher realms instead of helping the outer sect settle their miniature strife.
As a matter of fact, even if Jiang Chen became the ruler of the outer sect, as long as he didn’t affect the daily cultivation of the other disciples, it wouldn’t be a problem at all, but the current situation was just too overbearing. Jiang Chen had cut off their supply of resources, not leaving even a tiny bit for them. At this rate, the outer sect was going to be very unproductive in the long run.
“Although I can’t confront them, I can give you an idea.” Said Fang Hao with a smile.
“What idea?” Wang Tao’s expression froze.
“It isn’t appropriate for an inner sect disciple to get involved in the matters of the outer sect. If Jiang Chen is an inner disciple and acts so arrogantly, there will naturally be countless of us who will make him understand the word ‘miserable’. Unfortunately, he is an outer sect disciple. We will only become laughing stock if we go and deal with him personally. The one who can truly suppress him is the Institute of Elders. Regardless of how arrogant that Jiang Chen is, he won’t dare offend the Institute of Elders. One should know that there are late Heaven Immortal experts guarding the Institute. You can go to the Institute and sue him, letting the Institute to decide for you.” Said Fang Hao.
“We have already sought for their counsel before this, but they were uninterested in helping us. Brother Fang, you know that the Institute always doesn’t care about the strife amongst the disciples. Although Jiang Chen has crossed our line by absorbing all of the Immortal Qi in the Martial Palace, he hasn’t committed any crime.” Wang Tao shook his head.
“Like you said, it was the time before this. Now, Jiang Chen is getting more and more arrogant. You can gather a large number of people to visit the Institute every day to pressure them. Then, they will have no choice but to lend you all a hand. As outer sect elders, they can’t allow the entire outer sect to be thrown into chaos, otherwise they won’t be able to explain it to their superiors.” Said Fang Hao.
Wang Tao contemplated for a while and nodded. “It seems like this is the only way left. I will take my leave.”
After bidding goodbye, he returned to the outer sect. This time, he prepared to gather plenty of outer sect disciples and head over to the Institute of Elders to sue Jiang Chen. At this current moment, there was only the Institute of Elders that could help them.
In the afternoon of that day, hundreds of outer sect disciples gathered at the entrance of the Institute, blocking the path entirely. The Institute of Elders was a supreme and unparalleled existence in the sect. No one would dare to disrespect the institute. For the first time in the history of Skycloud Pavilion, such a large-scale rally was happening outside the Institute of Elders.
