Chapter 1007: Death Hunt (One)
“Hong Lian, you should refine the two treasures of your clan as soon as possible. The relationship between the Tian Yuan Continent and the Beast God Continent has been quite unpeaceful recently. The ruler of the Beast God Continent has become Jian Chen’s enemy because he wants the Winged Tiger God. Jian Chen can face danger at any moment, so we can’t leave his side for too long. Although Hei Yu is with him, he’s just one person in the end. If he comes across two Saint Emperors, he won’t be able to save Jian Chen,” said Rui Jin.
Hong Lian nodded slightly. She understood just how important Jian Chen was right now. She found it rather hard to accept that she needed to protect a junior, but in order to reunite with her clansmen, she would not hesitate to pay any even greater price.
Hong Lian glanced at the bead on the feathermail silently and asked, “Rui Jin, what is this bead? It doesn’t seem to be an item from my clan.”
“It was gifted by the Winged Tiger God. It’s an extremely wondrous treasure that specializes in protecting the soul. It can make the soul immune to foreign influences. It is extremely simple to refine the bead. All you need to do is drip a droplet of essence blood, and then fuse a portion of your soul into it,” Rui Jin explained.
Hong Lian did not say any more. She lifted up the two legacy treasures and the bead gifted by the Winged Tiger God and jumped into the crater of the volcano. She submerged herself in the churning magma.
Rum Guinness chose a beautiful mountain to construct a grave for her dead husband in the depths of the Cross Mountains. The grave was extremely simple, with a three-meter-tall stone gravestone and a dirt mound.
She did not bury her husband in the mound. Instead, she buried a few items that her husband always carried around, as well as some pieces of furniture her husband would use when he lived in the Gilligan clan.
Rum Guinness had no other choice except to bury these items, as her husband had already been dead for many years. She could not find his corpse no matter what.
“Husband, we’ve already avenged you. You can rest well in the afterlife….” Rum Guinness sobbed painfully before the gravestone as tears ran down her face unceasingly.
Growl! The white tiger produced a growl as well. Moreover, its voice carried some sorrow, as if it was trying to say something in its own language.
Jian Chen, You Yue, and Hei Yu stood silently beside Rum Guinness, as they watched everything unfold. Jian Chen and You Yue both carried a sliver of sorrow and sympathy, while Hei Yu remained indifferent.
Behind them stood the white-robed peng king and a group of elders from the Gilligan clan. They all looked at Rum Guinness and the Winged Tiger God silently with mixed gazes.
The peng king told the elders everything that had happened all those years ago with the tiger king’s death, which allowed them to understand the truth behind everything. Rum Guinness had not worked with humans and betrayed the clan. Instead, the tiger king framed her since he intended to kill the Winged Tiger God.
Although all the elders were magical beasts, there were plenty of clever people among them. Many of them immediately connected these events to the Beast God Continent after they learned the truth from the peng king. They guessed that there was definitely someone powerful on the Beast God Continent who had prompted the tiger king to harm the Winged Tiger God. Otherwise, the peng king would not have been so fearful either.
Rum Guinness dried her tears and rubbed the white tiger’s head gently. She said, “Child, let’s go. The Cross Mountains are no longer a place where the two of us can stay.” She turned to Jian Chen as she spoke and bowed politely toward him. “Savior, thank you for allowing us to complete our revenge. From now onward, I, Rum Guinness, am willing to work like a slave for the savior.”
Jian Chen quickly helped Rum Guinness up and said, “Please don’t be like that, senior. I am very good friends with Xiao Bai. It’s something that I’m supposed to do, helping a friend that is. And I also had some enmity with the tiger king, so I just happened to assist you in your revenge this time. Please don’t call me your savior, senior. Just call me Jian Chen.”
“Savior, how can I do that? I faced impending death back then, and if the savior had not taken in my child, he probably would not have been able to live until today. Also, saviour saved my life. Your kindness toward the two of us is so great that I cannot even return it with my life,” Rum Guinness said from the bottom of her heart.
The way Rum Guinness acted pained Jian Chen. After a slight hesitation, he said, “Senior, let’s not talk about this for now and leave this place.”
This time, Rum Guinness did not say anything more. She traveled toward the boundary of the Cross Mountains with Jian Chen and the white tiger.
The peng king could no longer remain silent, as he watched them gradually get further away. He said, “Rum Guinness, your child is the beast god, the Winged Tiger God. I hope the great beast god can stay behind and protect the Gilligan clan, as well as lead all the magical beasts in the Cross Mountains. Everyone in the Gilligan clan is willing to follow the great beast god.” The peng king dropped to one knee, as he finished his words.
“We’re willing to follow the great beast god!”
All of the elders dropped to their knees, and they all repeated what the peng king had said. No one disagreed.
“We will not be staying here. The Gilligan clan no longer has anything to do with us. I’ve stopped being a member of the clan long ago,” Rum Guinness said without looking back. The Gilligan clan was a region of pain in her heart, and a region of despair.
The peng king immediately hesitated with that. He secretly sighed as pity filled his face. He knew that Rum Guinness was still unable to let go of the matters from all those years ago because he, the peng king, did not interfere when the tiger king hunted down the couple. Additionally, he failed to stand up and reveal her innocence when the tiger king framed her.
Suddenly, a gleam of light flashed across Hei Yu’s indifferent eyes. They sharpened in that instant as he gazed at the space high up in the air.
The space there began to twist violently, and a Space Gate quickly formed. Three middle-aged men emerged from the Space Gate simultaneously. Two of them were burly, while one of them were evil-looking.
They were the two Class 9 Magical Beasts of the Beast God Continent and the path lord of carnal desires.
Kaiser and Lankyros’ faces were both dark as dense killing intent flickered in their eyes. As soon as they had appeared, their cold killing intent caused the surrounding temperatures to plummet and become bone-chilling.
