Star Wind City’s City Lord’s home had tight security.
“Master Wu, the Imperial Chariot’s attendance is our Star Wind City’s honor.” The City Lord flattered. in front of him was a skinny and tall man, wearing expensive ceremonial robes with a light smile constantly on his face, causing people to feel as if they were bathed by the spring wind.
As expected from a lord of a big place. The wave of a hand was able to cast his air around, causing the Lord of Star Wind City to feel inferior.
The Wu Clan, from Corvus Constellation, was a huge clan.
Master Wu laughed: “City lord is too welcoming. This Starry Door signifies a stabilizing source of revenue. I still have yet to thank City Lord! Star Wind City is such a good place, even the air has the tinge a of gold taste to it.”
The City Lord laughed with squinted eyes: “Make it big together, let’s make it big together!”
When Master Wu sought him out, the City Lord was still in doubt. Little did he expect that Master Wu had really found a Starry Door near Star Wind City. According to the agreement, the Starry Door would be used by both him and Master Wu.
Every constellation’s starry door was a door of riches.
“Then when will we begin exploring?” The City Lord looked at Master Wu impatiently.
“Of course, the faster the better!” Master Wu lightly sipped on some tea.
“Then let us begin organizing a group of guards!” the City Lord rolled up his sleeves.
Master Wu put down his cup of tea: “I have an idea. I heard of the Star Wind City Martial Meet, is about to begin.”
The City Lord felt pleased: “I did not think that even Master Wu would know of the Star Wind Martial Meet, this competition, can also be considered as something of significance.”
“This is such a good chance.” Master Wu laughed and continued: “I think, there is no place in Wu An Star that will have as many experts than the Star Wind Martial Meet.”
“Master Wu’s meaning is?” City Lord was suspicious.
“Why don’t we let them test the waters first? So many experts, just to perform in a bout in the competition, such a waste!” Master Wu had a pained face: “They are totally able to fit the first wave of pioneers.”
“That way is too dangerous.” City Lord hesitantly said.
“As long as they don’t delve too deep inside, there shouldn’t be a lot of danger. With their powers, if they dare say anything that offends you, the City Lord, your guards and troops are still more powerful than them.” Master Wu shot a glance at City Lord: “In the past, Star Wind City did not have any worthy people to covet, but now, as your partner, I have to remind you. Star Wind City, which holds a Starry Door now, will cause a lot of people to be jealous. Wealth will constantly be a fatal attraction. To grasp Star Wind City, to you now, is the most important thing to do.”
The City lord had a face of uncertainty, but the words had pierced through his current thoughts.
In the past, Star Wind City was just a city that possessed many schools, yet did not have a lot of
benefits, and naturally did not participate in any power struggle.
“City Lord, many years of generosity should reap some returns now.” Master Wu smiled and said: “Under heavy rewards, there must be brave men. With the mutual consent, they can have more rewards, and it is a good thing for them. I am willing for this Martial Meet to represent my Wu Clan, and will donate a bronze treasure – the Crow Spear.”
The City Lord’s face stretch marks unfolded: “Master Wu is definitely generous. Good! Since it is like this, then let’s do it this way!”
Tang Tian and Ah Mo Li disappeared in Zhou Peng’s cries.
“I’m going to kill him! Kill him!”
Behind Zhou Peng’s uncontrollable screams came Tang Tian and Ah Mo Li’s laughters.
“Fundamental Tang, I never thought you were actually such a sly and cunning man!” Ah Mo Li said sternly with a face but right after that he smiled: “Haha, but it felt so good! You actually used the Crane-Style Qi Manual so sinisterly. No wonder you’re a godlike man! That pussy Zhou Peng almost peed in his pants!”
“Housefly Cow, you could tarnish a man who is already so disgusting. You’re definitely my friend!” Tang Tian followed Ah Mo Li and said with a straight face.
The two looked at each other laughing.
“The woodblock beside Zhou Peng seemed powerful.” Ah Mo Li said as he recalled.
“Who cares? The worst that could happen is that we just fight.” Tang Tian said casually and looked at Ah Mo Li weirdly: “Housefly Cow, don’t tell me you’re afraid of him?”
“Afraid of him?” Ah Mo Li opened his eyes wide and waved the blade in his hands. He raged: “Fundamental Tang, you’re humiliating the man who will create his own Martial Dao. such humiliation can only be settled with a sparring session…”
A fist landed on the top of Ah Mo Li’s head.
“Seems like you’re very energetic!” Old Fart Wei appeared angrily.
Ah Mo Li withdrew his neck.
“There are some changes.” Old Fart Wei turned solemn and said in his low voice: “Star Wind City’s Martial Meet is unlike before.”
“Unlike before?” Tang Tian and Ah Mo Li looked up together.
“Near the Martial Meet, someone found a new Starry Door.” Old Fart Wei’s face congealed.
“Ah! Starry door?” Tang Tian opened his mouth wide, in a dazed. After a moment, then he reacted: “Where does the Starry Door leads to?”
“It’s unknown.” Old Fart Wei shook his head: “Which is why the City Lord has decided to let all of you open up the land.”
“Us?” Tang Tian and Ah Mo Li was shocked.
“Although the two of you are still rookies, you’re only lacking of fighting experience. Your capabilities are much higher than the ordinary experts out there, and much more powerful. On top of that, more than half of the experts from the Wu An Star are here at the Star Wind Martial Meeting. The City Lord has a few great ideas on hand.” Old Fart Wei’s eyes flickered: “But the both of you are still rookies, and I’m afraid you’ll sustain severe injuries, so the City Lord set the criteria based on the position of the academy. For the top ten academies, they’d receive the first batch of pass directly. In addition, in no sequence, everyone would be able to benefit from this Martial Meet. you’d gain what you reap. It is a vicious method.”
Ah Mo Li and Tang Tian listened as they were in daze.
“As long as the both of you know how valuable the passes are, that will do.” Old Fart Wei muttered: “Seems like I have to go all out this time round. Once I get a pass, Caramel Academy need not worry for the next ten years!”
“Is Old Fart coming along with us?” Tang Tian and Ah Mo Li asked as their faces clearly revealed their happiness.
“Go!” Old Far Wei said decisively.
The two cheered as they raised their hands up into the sky.
Old Fart wei was not happy though, a dull tinge of worry flashed across his eyes.
The City lord suddenly announced the discovery of the Starry Door and right away, a cackle arose within Star Wind City.
A wholly new Starry Door meant a steady and great deal of income.
Where did the Starry Door led to? What was available at the other end?
Everyone was curious, especially once City Lord had set the regulations for the passes. Not only did no one leave, many rushed to City Lord’s residence in hopes to participate in the Martial Meet. Although it was dangerous to open a new land, it always meant miracles and wealth.
In addition, to have a pass meant that, when the Starry Door officially opens, they would be able to get a part of the share.
This would be a long-term, steady benefit.
“The City Lord is definitely good at long term planning.” Master Wu looked at the crazy flow of people outside and said admirably: “We managed to bring in everyone without spending a single cent.”
The City Lord laughed: “It’s you, Master Wu who enlightened me. Since we have the authorities in Star Wind City, why don’t we let everyone exploit it? They might gain some benefits, but as such, no one will ever think of snatching it away from us, as that would mean they are seeing everyone else as enemies. Plus, it can aid in the progression, so why not?”
“Your knowledge and wisdom puts the sun to shame.” Master Wu replied respectfully.
“Only this time, I’m afraid many will die.” City Lord sighed lightly.
“Wealth is always accompanied by fresh blood. If it’s not yours, then it’s others’.” master Wu laughed: “Let the others bleed. We’ll be fine just earning the money.”
The City Lord clapped his hands and laughed: “Haha, such marvelous words!”
“This is the chance!” The Great Clan Elder looked excited: “I never thought that our Star Wind City would have an undiscovered Starry Door! Haha, the Heavens are really helping our Zhou Clan! This time, no matter what, we must get a pass.”
Zhou Peng’s hand was bandaged up, and he was not saying a word, with a gloomy expression.
“We have already reached an agreement with Andrew Academy, and will work together.” The Zhou Patriarch said respectfully: “As long as the pass is in our hands, both of us will enjoy the privileges of the passes. On our side, we can deploy six men.”
The Great Clan Elder satisfyingly nodded his head, his gaze swept to the gloomy Zhou Peng in the corner, and coldly said: “What is a small setback? Very soon you will have your chance for revenge.”
Zhou Peng’s eyes lit up, and he viciously clenched his fists.
“Very good, you still have the spirit to fight in you.” The Great Clan Elder nodded his hand, and took out a silver Grade spirit card: “This is the Rank Four Silver Grade [Isolated Spirit Spear] Spirit Card I obtained when I was younger, it was created by a Spear Master called Spear Master Yang Yun. Sadly, there are no successors in the Zhou Clan that practice the Spear Arts, and can only be used to call forth the spirit. For this one month, it can guarantee your safety.
His fingers shivered, causing the silver card to become a beam of silver light that landed in Zhou Peng’s hands.
The Zhou Patriarch was immediately happy when he saw what happened: “Thank you, Great Clan Elder, for your deep love! Peng’er will definitely work hard, and climb to greater heights.”
The Great Clan Elder laughed: “Summoning it out, truthfully, I am also curious, what kind of spirit Master Yang Yun has, and how his Isolated Spirit Spear will be.”
Everybody set their eyes on Zhou Peng’s body. Yang Yun was a master of spears two hundred years ago. His most famous spear technique would be the spirit busting spear.
Zhou Peng was overly thrilled with joy. He clenched his teeth as he slid his fingers across the edges of the card. The card was so thin, it sliced through his fingers and fresh blood stained the Spirit Card.
Threads of fresh blood was immediately attracted and was absorbed into the face of the Spirit Card.
The temperature of the hall dropped drastically. With a slap, the Spirit Card was broken into pieces and turned into a ball of grey mist. The grey mist turned over to keep changing.
Once the grey mist disappeared, an expressionless juvenile appeared with his eyes closed, standing in front of him. The juvenile seemed real and lifelike, but it could be seen that he was slightly different from a real person. His expression was plain, while his skin and clothes were like a tinted grey glass.
This is a Spirit General!
The Spirit General was floating in the air, with at least one metre away from the ground.
The Spirit General opened his eyes suddenly.
Boom! A vicious and outstanding qi surrounded the Spirit General as though it was a storm, overtaking every corner of the hall.
Everyone was stunned!
