The entire uproaring scene suddenly seemed to be distant, as the sound disappeared.
1000 sets of mechanic weapon, that was a total of 16 billion! That was a godlike number, it could buy the entire Corvus Constellation, could unify the entire Lupus Constellation, could buy over a 1000 of Northern Sky grade silver star treasures, and he could give Old Man Fei over 50 gold rank treasures for his laboratory….
Tang Tian almost smacked his own head, was he going nuts? He was actually thinking of getting Old Man Fei 16 billion star coins worth of treasures? Ok, Tang Tian really felt as if he was going nuts, but he was wrong, he was being struck by the number of 16 billion.
Heavens have taken pity on me!
When has a poor kid ever seen 16 billion? After thinking about his recently earned 1.5 billion, was already extremely satisfied. It made him very happy, a tyrant, definitely a tyrant!
Tang Tian was undergoing a self inspection, for he knew that, heaven would not give out free biscuits.
“What nonsense are you thinking of doing?” Tang Tian’s tone sent a cautionary message, witnessing Old Mo’s profiteering glib tongue previously, he was full of caution against the old man.
Mo Wei Tian glanced at Fat Elder Li who was proud of his own success, and smiled a bitter smile: “The world is in turmoil, and no one can escape it. The Mo family is just a small boat on the big wave, and needs to hang on to a big power.”
“Bullshit!” Even through the mask, Tang Tian’s gaze was extremely clear: “What big power am I! Even if you hang on to a big power, you cannot hang on to my body.”
“Young Master is underestimating yourself.” Mo Wei Tian smiled, and said softly: “Young Master is someone who is able to flip the world upside down with one hand. Lupus Constellation will only be the back garden of Young Master in the future. Although they are slightly poor, the Lupus Race are a gifted pack of people, with Young Master dominating them, there won’t be a problem.”
“I hate it when people lie to me.” Tang Tian was annoyed. Sounding unfriendly, he said: “don’t beat around the bush.”
Mo Wei Tian wiped the sweat on his forehead. Even if he was eloquent, he was most afraid to meet someone unreasonable. He had witnessed Tang Tian’s viciousness. Once he heard the frustration from Tang Tian’s tone of voice, he knew something bad was going to happen. He quickly added on: “Master, don’t be angry. Actually, I’m thinking of sending a batch of people to the training camp.”
“Roughly about 4 to 5 hundred of them.” Mo Wei Tian said.
“Are you also thinking of having an army of mechanic martial artists?” Tang Tian clarified.
Mo Wei Tian replied: “What choice do I have? The Mo Family can’t get a true expert and so we can only rely on numbers. During troubled times like these, if I don’t have something to depend on for self-protection, then the Mo family would perish.”
Tang Tian then saw the light. He did not understand why these men said the end of the world was coming, but then he changed his mind and thought the end of the world had nothing to do with him. His target was to get to Southern Cross Constellation to find Qian Hui.
“That shouldn’t be a problem.” Tang Tian pondered: “Head to Three Spirit City and find the instructor of the training camp. He’ll negotiate the price.”
Tang Tian was extremely clear of his own capabilities. He was good at playing fierce, mean, and had all the tricks hidden in his sleeves. Just like the 1.5 billion, it was a huge sum, but the essence of it was through extortion and blackmail. But personally witnessing Mo Wei Tian’s treachery, Tang Tian felt that he should let Bing who was equally treacherous handle him.
Mo Wei Tian felt that it was strange.
To be involved in such huge amount of wealth, Tang Tian was actually not handling it personally and instead, he made him go all the way to find his subordinate to discuss the matter. There were two possibilities. One, the chief instructor of the training camp was a core member. Or, the 16 billion was not a huge sum of money in Tang Tian’s eyes. He immediately eliminated that thought. For him to personally go down to Mo family to sell materials for 5 billion, his wealth should not be huge.
Mo Wei Tian’s thoughts were suddenly clear.
Suddenly, he realized all the words he said before were the best choice of phrasing. The Mo family was Tang Tian’s best ally. Tang Tian had splendid mechanical techniques and had absolutely no interest in those mediocre mechanics. That was exactly what Mo family needed. Tang Tian’s finances might not be great but the Mo family had money. More importantly, Tang Tian was not only a Heaven Road List martial artist, he had two Heaven Road List martial artists as his subordinates. Plus, he had an army.
Although Tang Tian might see this situation as bad but since this rascal actually had the mood to come all the way to Yong An City, he must be confident!
If Tang Tian could break out from this situation, then he would become the limelight of the world. Tang Tian was so young, he would be successful in the future!
This was, after all, a world that crowned the strongest. The strongest martial artist had a true axis to the earth. All the wealth, powers, and prestige all revolved around the strongest.
Tang Tian looked as though he was in a difficult situation but looking at the progress he made, Mo Wei Tian was shocked.
Just exactly how much can this boy grow?
Usually, Mo Wei Tian would find himself having good foresight but currently, he could not make a prediction. Currently, the powers Tang Tian possessed might not be the best in Southern Sky but there was no doubt that he would rise to the peak in the Southern Sky ranks. From his capabilities, Northern Sky’s 19 Continents, he could be a small tyrant and that would not be an issue.
Others might even query if the Southern Cross Constellations holy treasure was truly in Tang Tian’s hands, but Mo Wei Tian knew that they definitely weren’t just rumours. Sai Lei’s Mechanical Spirit Weapons were made with a great deal of Southern Cross Constellation mechanic’s techniques.
After sorting it all out, Mo Wei Tian then suddenly saw the light. Tang Tian had so many bargaining chips to play with!
Seeing Mo Wei Tian being quiet for so long, Tang Tian sensed something was off: “Is there a problem?”
Being quick witted, Mo Wei Tian added on quickly: “I was too engrossed. Oh yes, Master, is there any new works from Master Sai Lei?”
Tang Tian shook his head: “I won’t know about that. She’s there at Three Spirit City.”
Sai Lei was busy building a bronze base and Tang Tian himself was also piled with work.
Mo Wei Tian nodded: “Once this ends, I’ll head over.” He intended to head over to Three Spirit City personally. This was very important to the Mo family.
Fat Elder Li was surrounded by a group of people. Everybody understood that creation of the Yong An army would be the top priority. The future of Yong An city, there was not a speck of doubt where yong an army stood. It was something each family needed to think proving themselves so they deserved the position.
But, the fatty had his ways. Within half an hour, he got out of the crowd.
Looking at the conversation between Tang Tian and Mo Wei Tian, he sat on his butt and smiled bitterly: “You two are sure casual. I have been sweating like nobody’s business.”
“When the City Lord makes a request, all the heroes gather!” Mo Wei Tian complimented.
Tang Tian had devoured all ten pork hocks. There was no more space in his stomach. He could only sip on refreshing lime juice as he lazed around.
Seeing Fatty Li seated beside Tang Tian’s table, all those in the clumsy crowd stopped themselves. Everybody looked at Tang Tian and looked uncomfortable. That bloody mask looked as though he could engulfed everyone anytime.
That beast was still reeking of a ferocious stench even after he had his fill.
Fatty Li was not bothered by it at all. Into his mouth, he stuffed a slice a cake before he wiped his mouth: “The army will not be easy to build. It has only been this long, and I’m already burnt out. That Tang Tian, whoever he is, is so lucky. He has such great subordinates.”
Mo Wei Tian did not even look at Tang Tian. Chuckling, he continued: “As a prestigious City Lord, if you open your mouth, what kind of men can’t you summon?”
Fatty Li pushed a few money cards and said to Tang Tian: “He is still smart and has a few money cards prepared. Bro Xing shouldn’t be so calculative. The young miss from his house is not too bad. She is quite smart. Would bro be interested? To be able to create a connection with Younger bro, tsk tsk, too bad I don’t have a daughter!”
“I’ll keep the money cards. I’ll kindly reject the young miss.” Tang Tian said lazily. He was just too full.
“I think so too.” Fatty Li was not surprised: “When you have such a pretty lady like Miss Bell, why would such a mediocre lady catch bro’s eyes.”
Just at the point, an anxious subordinate ran in.
This man was donned in a sturdy armour. His face covered in dust. It was obvious he had come a long way.
Silence fell. Everybody recognised that something had happened. And the elderly beside the city lord knew this man. He was the Onyx Soul Horse subordinate of the City Master.
What kind of news would actually need him to report personally?
Fatty Li had just raised his utensils when his face turned solemn and he placed the utensils back down.
The man rushed to Fatty Li. looking agitated, he reported: “Master, the latest news of Lupus Constellation!”
Tang Tian straightened his back subconsciously.
Fatty Li eyes lit up as he ordered: “Speak!”
“Wu Tie Yu and Huai Bai Hua are dead!”
Fatty Li was shocked. Immediately, he reacted as he looked slightly agitated: “Who? Who intersected?”
“Nobody, it was Tang Tian’s people.” This Onyx Soul Horse was slightly emotional too “At dawn, Crane suddenly appeared in Wu Tie Yu’s camp and asked for a spar. Wu Tie Yu agreed. The battle was extreme. In the end, Wu Tie Ying was chopped by Crane’s sword. There were many martial artists who witnessed this. Although Ling Xu’s situation and location is unclear now, Huai Bai Hua and his disciple, Hua Yang, were all killed by Ling Xu’s spear.”
Tang Tian stared in bewilderment.
Little Crane and little Xu were so aggressive. He had just left for a few days only?
Were they high or something?
Fatty Li was in disbelief. After a pause, he suddenly laughed: “Hahahah! Tu Ru Hai! Tu Ru Hai! You would never have thought that Tang Tian is this vicious! Interesting! Originally what was the weakest, is actually so strong. Things have taken a turn!”
Mo Wei Tian stared at Tang Tian in shock.
He knew Tang Tian’s subordinates consist of two Heaven’s Road List martial artist but he never thought the two were so ferocious!
He had always been observing this battle. In his head, he had a thought. Everybody was going to go crazy.
Mo Wei Tian was not wrong.
Although it was a battle that took place in a secluded area but these two battles had caused an uproar.
Everyone knew that no matter what ending these battles had, it would definitely bring a chain reaction. But in everybody’s guesses, they were all revolving around the top three.
Nobody would have expected a puny character like Tang Tian, to have elicited this chain effect. Instead of following their predictions, he changed the game totally.
In everybody’s eyes, Tang Tian was merely a domino tile.
The first domino tile had fallen but it was in a direction no one had thought. A small character that was overlooked by everyone had completely stirred shit up in this situation.
Where was this game heading to? No one knew!
Everyone was going crazy.
