Martial God Conqueror - Chapter 80
The Demonic Tiger's Might
“Punk, remember to be smarter in your next life! You should not have been so greedy. Our Treasure Descend Firm’s money is not so good to take!” Huang San sneered, and his hand then waved lightly, signaling the twenty or so people to attack.
Hearing the order, the more than twenty people had their xuanqi burst out. Their hands were holding weapons, and in a heartbeat, one of them rushed out. The knife in the man’s hand swung downwards on the hooded figure.
However, when the knife came down, the purpled-robed figure disappeared like a phantom under the attack.
Low blasts sounded, and before any of the attackers could react, they witnessed the man who attacked just now was thrown off mercilessly accompanied by blood splatters in the air. The man fell some distance away, causing the ground to tremor. The body stayed motionless on the ground. Whether he was dead or alive was undetermined.
*Bang! Bang! Bang!*
Continuous blasts sounded in the courtyard, and trailing behind them was the sound of bones breaking and wails of excruciating pain.
The purple-robed figure swooped down on the men like a phantom and the over twenty men rolled on the ground. Blood splatters colored a large area of the courtyard red and the thick smell of blood hung in the air.
At last, the purple-robed figure paused in front of the dumbstruck Huang San. Everything that had happened barely took more than a few breaths’ of time.
“Expert, this person is an expert!”
Shock was written all over Huang San’s face, and his pupils shrunk due to fear. According to his past experiences in the Poison Fog Mountains, the person in front of him was definitely a strong expert. He made the wrong call, this person was far stronger than he had imagined!
The purple-robed figure aimed a hand at Huang San’s throat, the sharp claw-shaped hand could almost tear the space barrier.
Fear filled Huang San’s eyes. However, he's still an early Xiantian warrior. Xuanqi burst out from the bottom of his feet, securing his retreat. At the same time, he screamed at the top of his lungs, “Third steward, save me ah, someone’s making trouble!”
Shaofu’s hand pursued Huang San like maggots on rotten meat. With Huang San’s early-Xiantian cultivation, he was caught just after he had retreated two steps. Du Shaofu shattered his xuanqi protective barrier and pierced through his vital point.
Huang San’s scream echoed sharply. However, his body did not have the energy to struggle away.
The kind of pain that drills into the heart, made Huang San lost all the color on his face as his screams echoed through the courtyard.
The commotion in the yard attracted more men. In mere moments, more than a dozen new faces appeared in the yard, scrutinizing the miserable picture of their companions on the ground. Every one of them had an ugly expression on their face, and with a trace of vigilance towards the purple-robed figure. All of them then spread out and encircled the perpetrator.
“Release him and I will spare your life!”
A somber voice rang out in the yard, a man that was almost a hundred years old walked out from the inner yard with several strong-looking cultivators who followed from behind.
“Third Steward, save me! Ah! Third Steward, save me!” When Huang San saw the robust old man, he quickly cried for help.
The purpled-robed figure tilted his head slowly to look at the old man, saying “I came to claim my winnings, a total of five hundred and twenty-eight thousand xuanbi. Just now you wanted to kill me thus I want you to add another five hundred thousand xuanbi. Forget the odd sum at the end. Pay me and I will leave.”
“One million xuanbi, hahahahahaha……”
The robust old man burst out in a hearty laughter as if he had heard the world’s funniest joke. His laughter stopped just as abrupt, and a horrifying aura gushed out from his body. The strong energy caused ripples in the air, and the people around him found it hard to breathe.
“I don’t care who you are. Today, you won’t walk out of the Treasure Descend Firm alive. You absolutely must die!”
A stentorian voice came out from the old man’s mouth; a murderous light gleamed dangerously in his eyes.
“Third steward you must save me! Ah! Third steward!!”
Fear was even more apparent in Huang San’s face while he tried to get the attention of the third steward that simply didn't care whether he’s dead or alive.
“Hmm, looks a little stronger than Cao Qitai. Mid-Maidong level is pretty good.”
A laid-back voice came out from the purple-robed figure, he looked at the old man and said, “I’m giving you another chance, add another five hundred thousand xuanbi for a total of one million and five hundred thousand xuanbi, and I can pretend that nothing happened.”
“One million and five hundred thousand xuanbi!”
The old man sneered, not to mention the fact that the Treasure Descend Firm couldn't take out this much xuanbi, the people behind the firm also couldn't take out this sum.
One million and five hundred thousand xuanbi. Probably, only the Ye Family had such wealth in the entirety of Stone City.
The old man stared coldly at the purple-robed young man, “You were the one who’s looking for death. There’s a way to heaven but you came knocking at hell’s door!”
“I gave you an oppurtunity but you ignored it.” The purple-robed young man’s laid-back voice sounded again.
“You're already at death’s door and still spoke so much nonsense!”
The old man sneered fiendishly as his xuanqi surged; faint runes whirled out and his killing aura pierced the sky. He was the third person in charge of Spirit Hunting Group that's stationed in Treasure Descend Firm, but it did not mean that he would not kill.
Someone capable of being the third head of the Spirit Hunting Group that was considered as one of the top beast hunting teams, there was no doubt about his strength and capability.
Suddenly, when xuanqi broke out from the old man, a violent gale swept down the courtyard. A thunderous tiger’s roar resounded in the air, shaking the entire Stone City.
At this moment, the entire Stone City was alerted. That tiger’s roar was like thunder on earth, and many experts rushed out from the bigger families.
“A demonic beast’s roar. A strong demonic beast broke into the city!”
“Not good, there’s a demonic beast inside the city!”
At the first instant, those family experts headed towards the origin of the sound. As part of the big families of Stone City, they have the duty and responsibility to guard and protect the city.
A huge winged tiger appeared above the courtyard. Its body was densely covered with majestic scales. Threatening growls issued from its mouth as its large wings spread, and then swooping down like it has found its prey. The prey was the old man.
“A Pulse Spirit demonic-scaled tiger, how did such a strong demonic tiger appear inside Stone City!”
The abrupt change of situation made the old man feel fear. Seeing the body that was as big as a small hill pounced on him, he had no time to take care of the purple-robed young man. He turned around to escape, possessing no courage to fight the demonic-scaled tiger at all.
A thunderous roar shook the air as the demonic-scaled tiger persistently targeted the old man. With just a flap of its wings, violent wind slashed across the courtyard, destroying it. Dust and gravels flew as rumbling sounds of crumbling buildings continued.
The old man let out an anguished scream. Before he could run too far, the demonic-scaled tiger swooped down on him and its front paw that was shrouded in runes marked his back. Blood spurted out from the old man’s back. Most of his bones were fractured in less than a breath’s time.
The old man hadn't finished screaming before the demonic-scaled tiger swallowed him whole into its belly.
Perhaps, the third steward had never imagined a Pulse Spirit level demonic-scaled tiger would make a visit to the Treasure Descend Firm on this day, and thus, he ended up being swallowed into its belly.
After killing the old man, the demonic-scale tiger ignored everyone else, creating a violent gale in the ruined yard as it flapped its wings and flew away.
The huge tiger came and left just as abruptly, but its oppressive aura lingered in the courtyard.
“The third steward died just like that?”
When the remaining dozen of people recovered from their shocked, they looked around at each other, realzing that their mighty third steward died so simply.
Huang San was still held high up by the purple-robed young man. The scene that took place right in front of his eyes made him swallow nervously, and cold sweat broke out from his entire body.
“Now, can you take out one million and five hundred thousand xuanbi to pay me?” The figure fixed his gaze on Huang San and asked.
“Guest. No, Lord, I really don’t have one million and five hundred thousand xuanbi to take out. There isn’t so much xuanbi in the Treasure Descend Firm even if you search every corner, from top to bottom. But I know that the bets for the Five Families Juniors Competition are still in the treasury, altogether two hundred thousand xuanbi; that is all. Lord, mercy…..”
Huang San cried and begged. Due to the third steward being eaten by the demonic-scaled tiger that appeared out of nowhere, he doesn’t have any backup now.
“Two hundred thousand is far from enough ah. This debt needs to be collected slowly, aiii.”
The purple-robed young man sighed. At this moment, in front of those present, he removed the cloak from his head and threw it without a care, revealing a sharp and resolute face.
When those people saw the face under the cloak their eyes almost fell out from their sockets.
“Du Shaofu, how could you be the Du Clan’s Du Shaofu?!”
Huang San finally saw the face of the perpetrator. Consequently, his shock slowly changed to hopelessness.
No wonder he had always felt that this purple-robed person was very familiar from his voice to his silhouette as if he knew this person. In the end, the person who made the Treasure Descend Firm out of business was the very same young man who won the Five Families Juniors Competition yesterday – Young Master Du Shaofu. A tyrannical and terrifying youth.
At this moment, Huang San had lost all hope, he knew that if the dead third steward had known that it was Du Shaofu from early on, he wouldn’t dare play any tricks. He would scour enough xuanbi and send it to the Du Clan personally.
Du Shaofu’s expression was not good. The evening before yesterday, he sold off the three storage pouch he had. In addition, while enduring his bleeding heart, he also sold off much of his good stuff to the Du Clan’s shop just to pool that thirty-three thousand xuanbi. He planned to ‘invest’ them to lighten his dire financial burden.
The materials for the spirit liquid that Zhen Qingchun would refine became more and more expensive. If he did not look for a solution quickly, he truly couldn't afford them.
