Chapter 206: Bribe Me?
“Ah, endure, don’t give up on me!!”
Wei Suo cried out in his heart as he observed the blood light screen around him. Nevertheless, to his dejection, regardless of how much he cried, the blood light screen turned increasingly dimmer.
As the blood light screen dimmed in brilliance, his flying speed also waned. Evidently, the energy of this Blood Evading Talisman was about to expire.
Although this Blood Evading Talisman could still be activated twice, Wei Suo felt that should he activate it once more, even if he didn’t die, he may faint from the loss of blood or knock against some hidden danger.
Wei Suo glanced back only to witness the golden flying light getting closer and closer. He cursed in depress as he channelled a stream of true energy into Wang Tong’s body.
Wang Tong’s body jolted and he immediately woke up.
“Senior!” Upon opening his eyes, he realized he was being carried by Wei Suo and flying through the sky. Wang Tong’s complexion paled in shock.
“Cease from complaining first, listen to me.” Wei Suo flew towards a region of hills while speaking to Wang Tong.
“Initially, I was entrusted to pass a message to the Jin Clan, but got caught in their internal strife instead. Now you are implicated too, and I rescued you out from the Jin Clan. Now, I’ve alarmed the Zhang Clan and the Liu Clan of Perching Phoenix City, those cultivators pursuing me are extremely tough to deal with; I can no longer protect you and escape to a safe place. Soon, I will place you in the midst of those hills, find a place to hide. You aren’t a cultivator with spirit energy emission, as long as you hide well, a cultivator may not necessarily be able to find you. If you succeed in hiding, do not return to Perching Phoenix City. I will now impart a cultivation technique to you. Try your best to remember the mnemonic and comprehend it, you are on your own now.”
Wang Tong’s eyes flashed with utmost gratitude upon hearing Wei Suo’s words, but chose to remain silent as he nodded.
Wei Suo ignored him and quickly recited the mnemonic of his Purple Mystic True Technique twice.
Besides, the Purple Mystic True Technique wasn’t considered top quality in the Heavenly Profound Continent, where many other low level cultivators trained in it too. With his Heaven Mending Pellets, it didn’t matter if others trained in the same technique too.
Wei Suo then fished out a bag of spiritual stones, roughly 200-300 low grade spiritual stones, and transferred them to Wang Tong.
Although it wasn’t safe to dump a mortal like Wang Tong in the wilderness, this was a crisis that Wei Suo had no other alternatives.
“Dare I ask for senior’s real name. As long as I succeed in hiding through this, I will surely repay senior’s kindness in the future.” Wang Tong understood that an ordinary cultivator surely wouldn’t care about his livelihood, much less give him spiritual stones. After receiving the stones, Wang Tong uttered in utmost gratitude.
“Surnamed Wei, no need to repay any kindness. If I can escape successfully, I will reside in an exceedingly faraway place. I’m afraid we will no longer meet in the future.”
At present, Wei Suo had reached the top of those hills. While speaking, he flew down and dropped Wang Tong into a patch of forest. Without stopping, he continued flying through the hills towards a distance away from Perching Phoenix City.
The rest of the pursuing flying lights could barely be seen by now, only a single golden light continued its pursuit for Wei Suo.
In roughly half an incense worth of time, this yellow-brow Old Ancestor Zhang would reach merely a kilometer away from Wei Suo.
At present, the blood light surrounding him had utterly vanished. Wei Suo chose not to conjure up his firecloud technique, but consumed two True Recovery Pellets and landed on the ground.
When landing, he simultaneously summoned three divine light screens.
Upon seeing Wei Suo’s actions, Old Ancestor Zhang released a sneer and flew down as well.
He could tell the opponent now planned to battle with him instead of escaping.
“I say this senior, this one has no grievances with you, why pursue me mercilessly? As long as you leave me a way out, perhaps we can develop friendly ties in the future.” Wei Suo announced to the flying Old Ancestor Zhang.
“You acted violently and injured others in Perching Phoenix City, causing such great turmoil in the Jin Clan. If I free you, the cultivators of the Heavenly Profound Continent wouldn’t put Perching Phoenix City in their eyes anymore, how can you say there are no grievances?” Old Ancestor Zhang landed 300 meters away from Wei Suo and scoffed.
“Are you from the JIn Clan or the Liu Clan?” Wei Suo abruptly asked.
Old Ancestral Zhang was slightly surprised and answered, “This one is Zhang Buji, the current clan master of the Zhang Clan.”
“Since you aren’t from the Jin or the Liu Clan, there aren’t any relations between the people I’ve hurt with you.” Wei Suo replied.
“Let me owe you a debt today, if your Zhang Clan requires assistance in the future, I will do my utmost to help; how about that? As for giving an excuse, just use your authority as the clan master.”
“Are you trying to ridicule me?!” Old Ancestor Zhang was stunned that Wei Suo could actually speak such words even at this time. Still, his bafflement changed into a fury as he chided angrily.
“Can’t we discuss this? I have 60,000 low grade spiritual stones here, treat it as you’ve never pursued me.” Wei Suo negotiated with Old Ancestor Zhang.
“You’re trying to bribe me?” Old Ancestor Zhang’s eyes widened with intrigue. Living till such an old age, he had never encountered a cultivator like Wei Suo.
“Haha.” Wei Suo remained unfazed as he sneakily muttered, “If senior doesn’t mind, I still have a pretty remarkable skill technique here. I can expose this to senior.”
“You wish to purposely drag for time eh? Old Ancestor Zhang smirked and spitefully answered.
“Don’t talk about the things you are offering, even if I lust for any objects on you, once I take you down, everything you have belongs to me.”
“This old fox hasn’t turned stale over the years, reacting so quickly.” Wei Suo scolded dejectedly in his heart. He was indeed dragging for time, waiting for the effects of the Heaven’s Path Pellet to fade away.
He could observe that Old Ancestor Zhang was a true Thought Division Stage level 2 cultivator, in addition to the Heaven’s Path Pellet, his true energy might was equivalent to the Thought Division Stage level 4; definitely not something Wei Suo could defy.
Still, he shamelessly spoke without changing his expression, “Seems like senior isn’t willing to give face no? This one is an inner disciple of the Spirit Beast Palace, I possess extremely good relations with my senior sister, Xin Youlan. We enrolled together, you can even say that we are childhood sweethearts.”
“You’re an inner sect disciple of the Spirit Beast Palace?” Hearing Wei Suo’s words, Old Ancestor Zhang’s countenance turned solemn.
“Of course.” Wei SUo earnestly nodded. “This one is an authentic inner sect disciple of Spirit Beast Palace.”
“This……..” Old Ancestor Zhang started to hesitate. If the opponent was truly an inner sect disciple of Spirit Beast Palace, he really didn’t dare to kill him. However, his eyes flickered again as he recalled something and asked, “Since you say you are a disciple of Spirit Beast Palace, shouldn’t you have the Command Token of an inner sect disciple?”
“Of course I have, but I didn’t bring it along with me on this adventure.” Wei Suo was sorely regretting that he threw away the Command Token given to him by Xin Youlan.
“How about this, this one has some ties with Palace Elder Li Kunyuan, since you are a disciple of Spirit Beast Palace, it is impossible not to know him. Still, he seldom ventures out, and only a Spirit Beast Palace disciple will know his appearance. Tell me his appearance to verify your status as a disciple of Spirit Beast Palace. On account of him, I will give him face and not pursue matters of Perching Phoenix City. I will even help you conceal this.” Old Ancestor Zhang announced to Wei Suo.
Wei Suo didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. He had never heard of the name Li Kunyuan before, how could he know his appearance. Still, Wei Suo pretended to be confident and answered.
“So senior and Elder Li is acquainted, I’ve seen Elder Li several times, he normally loves to wear bright-colored robes and looks smaller in nature. Recently, his hair has gotten whiter and his nose sharper, as for his figure, approximately the same as senior here.”
“Oh? You even know that he loves wearing bright-colored robes? Seems like you are truly a disciple of Spirit Beast Palace.” Upon listening to Wei Suo, Old Ancestor Zhang’s eyes flickered as he said.
“Could it be my nonsense rambling, has actually hit the mark?” Wei Suo couldn’t believe this as well.
“Since you are a true disciple of Spirit Beast Palace, then on account for him, I will conceal this matter for you.” Old Ancestor Zhang glanced at Wei Suo and continued. “You can leave now.”
Wei Suo’s lips curled in delight. Yet when he was about to flee expressionlessly, he suddenly notice a queer expression on Old Ancestor Zhang’s face.
The vigilant Wei Suo immediately roared and activated his Divine Six-Suns Firefork.
Right at the same time, Old Ancestor Zhang reached out both arms. One hand held a strange ancient mirror artifact that floated in front, before releasing a black beam.
“Old man, you even dare to kill a disciple of Spirit Beast Palace?” Wei Suo activated his Divine Six-Suns Firefork and exclaimed.
“You dog shit Spirit Beast Palace cultivator, Li Kunyuan was merely a made up name by me and you believed it to be true, even to the point of describing his appearance.” Old Ancestor Zhang sneered. “Still mentioning that he loves bright-colored robes, you really can babble wildly.”
