“Ling Xu this ingrate! Ingrate! When have we ever mistreated him? He actually turned on us? Jerk! We can’t let him off like this, never!”
The butler of the first family was green with fury, howling in the hall, he had been the henchman of the Great Clan Elder for forty years. Most of the household matters must pass through his hands, even the sons of Great Clan Elder had less authority than him.
He had had a lot of contact with Ling Xu. Star coins, spirit cards, star rocks etc, were all given from him to Ling Xu. Ling Xu’s treatment in the first family was definitely second to none.
“This is my mistake.” The Great Clan Elder regained his composure, and with a low voice said: “I have cared too little for Ling Xu. Such a genius, how can he be so easily won over by money? I was too careless! Speak, what exactly is Ling Xu like?”
What was Ling Xu like?
The butler was stunned, he could not help but recall, he was somewhat uncertain, “A little boring, doesn’t like to speak much, not too happy, seems to be uninterested in anything.”
“Forget it.” Great Clan Elder shook his head and sighed, “Such a mistake made once, and we have suffered disastrous consequences. Now let’s think, how to save the situation. Have you managed to contact that person?”
The butler’s face seemed miserable, “Qi Ya rejected, seems like the rumours were true.”
Great Clan Elder pondered, “To be able to escape from Qi Ya’s hands, his abilities can’t be belittled, what about the others?”
“The only others who are willing to take up this offer, are the Hua Brothers.” The butler replied.
“The Hua Brothers?” Great Clan Elder had heard of these names before, his eyes lit up, “The two brothers, Hua Rong and Hua Sha?”
“Yes!” The butler was a little excited, “They are willing to accept this job, although the price is high, there’s only the two of them left out of the rest of the experts. The good thing is, although it is pricier, the Hua Brothers are easier to speak to, and are easier to get along with than Qi Ya.”
“Then the Hua Brothers it is!” Great Clan Elder was decisive, “Must be fast! The earlier we settle it, the better the situation is for us, the later the more passive we are.”
“One day later, they will be able to arrive!” The butler gritted his teeth, “Ling Xu and that fellow, they won’t be able to come up with any more tricks.”
Great Clan Elder revealed a look of satisfaction, “With them around, I’m relieved. Remember to remind them not to harm Gu Xue, I want her alive.”
“Yes!” The butler replied respectfully.
“You’re going to the Southern Cross Constellation?” Ling Xu stared unblinkingly at Tang Tian’s face, as if there were a flower on his face.
“Yes.” Tang Tian had a face of curiosity, “Eh, you heard of Southern Cross Constellation?”
“My master has mentioned it before.” Ling Xu had a look of reminiscence, “Don’t provoke the experts of the Thirteenth Palace, and people affiliated to Southern Cross Constellation, he said.”
Tang Tian had a look of astonishment, “Wow, your master is that formidable? He must have guessed that Southern Cross Constellation has a godlike young man, right, right!”
Suddenly, a shadow appeared out of the blue beside Tang Tian, “Who’s your master?”
Bing’s gaze were fixed rigidly on Ling Xu.
Ling Xu jolted up from his seat, and positioned into a wary stance, his pupils constricted, “Who are you?”
He could feel the menacing aura coming from the other party, this level of aura……. so strong!
Who was this fellow?
Tang Tian was shocked, he hurriedly got up, “He’s Bing, my Spirit General.”
“Spirit General?” Ling Xu eyed Bing suspiciously, “Your Spirit General is the same as you, rather unusual.”
“Really really? Haha! You sure have good eyesight!” Before Ling Xu’s blackened face, the exhilarated Tang Tian told Bing, “Hey, Uncle, don’t be so fierce, don’t scare the kid!”
Ling Xu’s eyes widened, a raw nerve was touched, he jumped in fury, “You are the kid! Your whole family is made up of kids!”
Tang Tian had an “I knew it” expression, and said to Bing, “See, I told you so.”
Bing ignored Tang Tian, rather his gaze was fixed on Ling Xu, “What else did your master say?”
Ling Xu now knew that Bing was not dangerous, kept his spear, and snorted, as he was unhappy with Bing’s stare, “I forgot!”
Tang Tian patted Ling Xu’s shoulders, and comforted him, “Kid, one must be open-minded, my gosh, you actually succumbed to the level of a Spirit General?”
“Aries Constellation… …” Bing was trying hard to recollect, suddenly, wait, he spun around, and stared at Tang Tian with an unfriendly look, “What do you mean by succumbed to the level of a Spirit General?”
Tang Tian pretended not to hear, and yawned facing the sky.
Looking at the bickering duo, Gu Xue, who was playing with Yaya in her hands, suddenly felt how nice it would be if time could stop at this moment.
“Great Clan Elder, they are here!” The butler’s voice had a tinge of tremor.
“Let them in.” Great Clan Elder suppressed his happiness, and hurriedly instructed, while he stood up to greet them.
Two imposing figures appeared in the doorway, instantly blocking the light passing through the door. The duo walked to the front of Great Clan Elder. A strong sense of oppressiveness washed in, even the Great Clan Elder, who had seen numerous events of majestic scales, could not help but shudder in their presence.
Indeed, they are worthy to be listed in the top fifty experts of the entire Humble Forest Planet!
Hua Rong, 1.85 m tall, strong and powerful, brown long hair over the shoulders, naked upper half of body, angular bronze muscles, icy cold gaze, carrying a bronze stick.
Hua Sha with hideous looks, taller than Hua Rong by a head, more defined body shape and powerful, bulging muscles, brings a sense of horror to people. Him standing there was like an iron mountain, before him, there was a strong feeling of suppression, as though an invisible hand were clutching one’s throat, rendering one unable to breathe. His weapon was a dead heavy double headed mace, which he casually held.
The icy cold aura that belonged to experts, oppressed each corner of the house.
To be able to enter the top fifty of Humble Forest Planet at the same time, this brother duo was the one and only duo. Either one of them, were absolute strong players, towards Black Mountain City.
Furthermore there were two of them!
No one can stop them, everything was in their control, including Gu Xue.
“I beg of you two!” Before such strong experts, the Great Clan Elder did not dare to act high and mighty.
Hua Rong asked expressionlessly, “Where’s our stuff?”
“We have already paid the deposit… …” The butler replied.
Hua Rong seemed not to hear, that pair of icy cold eyes, stared at the Great Clan Elder, “We are very busy, we have no time to drag on with you guys.”
“You…….” The butler did not think that Hua Rong would be so unruly.
The Great Clan Elder reached out his hands to prevent the butler from scolding, and peacefully replied, “It has to be given sooner or later, I’m confident in both of you, go, take out the remuneration that we have prepared.”
Hua Rong’s glance just now made the Great Clan Elder feel as though his heart were strangled by a pair of hands, and nearly stopped beating. He was a decisive person, and knew what to do at this time.
Hua Rong was surprised at the Great Clan Elder’s straightforward attitude, he nodded, “Indeed the Great Clan Elder, you are straightforward, we brothers would not drag either. They won’t live beyond tonight.”
Hua Rong’s claim was mentioned casually, but it gave others a strong sense of confidence.
Hua Sha broke into a smile, seemingly foolish, but seemingly like a beast too.
“Then I’m relieved.” Great Clan Elder forced a smile.
Very soon, the remuneration was sent up, Hua Rong scanned it, and kept it satisfactorily.
“Get someone to show us the way.” Hua Rong said lightly, “The earlier we finish, the earlier we can relax. If there’s any other business in future, please take care of us, Great Clan Elder.”
He said to Hua Sha, “Let’s go.”
When the duo left, Great Clan Elder immediately sat back down on his sofa, he then realised that unknowingly, he was already drenched in sweat from head to toe, and was feeling weak.
The Great Clan Elder felt aghast, and surprised.
These are the real experts!
Ling Xu seemed to pale in comparison.
His eyes shone eerily, he wanted to tell everyone that whoever betrayed him, would have only one outcome
The entire Black Mountain City, was unusually quiet, all the clans were trying hard to restrain their own clans, the once bustling Black Mountain City even seemed a little parched. The wide streets were empty without a single person.
Such an unusual peace was a sign, that this was the calm before a storm.
“Too quiet! I even feel a little out of breath.” Gu Xue stood before the window, looking down on the empty streets, her tone showing signs of anxiety.
Even a fool would know that the Great Clan Elder was just preparing for retaliation, once he finished preparations, what awaited Ling Xu and the rest, would definitely be a sharp and relentless attack.
The Great Clan Elder of the Gu Clan had the best reputation out of all the other elders of the Gu Clan. It was right under his management, that the power of the first family, was far more remarkable than the other families.
Gu An Xiong also lost his usual calm, he sat on the chair with a tinge of dismal, and bitterly laughed, “This time we’ve miscalculated, Ling Xu’s betrayal just gave that old fellow a perfect excuse to show his prowess, our efforts were in vain!”
Gu Wu stunned, and almost instantly screamed piercingly, “Don’t tell me that Great Clan Elder is going to hold Gu Xue captive? I dare him!”
He had long seen Gu Xue as a catch in his bag, he was certain to get her, not only because of her Snow Rainbow Blood Meridians, but also because of her good looks, these few days it kept surfacing in his mind, and he had sleepless nights.
Gu An Xiong sneered, “What does he not dare? The entire clan, the only one that I am not confident of winning against is that old fellow. Don’t be fooled by his usual quietness, once he gets into action, he will never give a chance to the others.”
Gu Wu forced himself to calm down, “Not so easy, Ling Xu and that mysterious fellow are not easy to deal with, plus Mu Lei.”
Gu An Xiong shook his head, “Great Clan Elder won’t engage in things he’s not confident in.”
Suddenly, Da Wei, who had been keeping an eye on the streets, shouted, “They’re out!”
Gu Wu and Gu An Xiong hurriedly ran over, two men who were akin to iron towers, breezily ran towards the ruins under the guidance of a martial artist.
Two names jumped out in Gu Wu’s mind, his face instantly went white.
“The Hua brothers… …”
His exclamation was filled with strong tremors.
Gu An Xiong’s face went green, and muttered to himself, “As expected… …”
All the eyes staring at this street were shocked!
