Leaving the Xue Family Warehouse, Ping Xiao Shan’s mind was in a mess. ~Such an important matter, how couldthey so casually just decide on something? To grow through battle, isn’t difficult to comprehend. But, he actually hasthat much confidence in his own abilities?~
This was what Ping Xiao Shan could not understand.
~If anyone else were to be faced with the same situation, they would think of a plan, or find the weaknesses of their enemies, or form alliance with other powerhouses etc etc, who would find time to look for others as training partner? Hoping to grow stronger from that?~
~That…..that is too ridiculous……~
Ping Xiao Shan started to question whether he was relying on a reckless person, such people were statistically meant to fail. ~lucky for me, I have a few techniques on hand~ Thinking about that, Ping Xiao Shan consoled himself, ~This guy learned my family’s stealth techniques in a night, and was able to create a few techniques for himself, maybe he can truly become stronger?~
No one knew if it was this self consolation that worked, but Ping Xiao Shan’s state of mind slowly calmed down.
After calming down, he started to think clearer. ~If such a person has such high perception, then this will not be thebest answer. Tang Tian’s fight with Ben Sen had shocked the entire city, and all the families would be cautiousagainst him.
To collide with them right now, they would definitely lose out.
As compared to the other four families, the Mu’er Family was still lacking in strength, they only had one expert, BenSen, holding the fort, and it was not easy for them to encounter sieges.
~From another angle, this unanticipated action is truly acting before thinking.~
He shook his head, it was not a question and problem that he could resolve, so why waste so much brainpower? Histhoughts returned back to his task, Tang Tian had instructed him to investigate on the locations of the tortureprisons.
~Truly self confident!~
Ping Xiao Shan laughed bitterly.
Han Bing Ning did not doubt Tang Tian’s decision at all, she was different from Ping Xiao Shan, she was long used toCrazy Tang’s seemingly stupid and weird methods, but the rewards were always great. When the stupidity reaches acertain&nb
sp;level, it could be considered the least expected thing.
With regards to Tang TIan’s talent in training, in the entire Ursa Major Constellation, no, in the entire Heaven’sRoad, no one doubted his abilities.
The godlike young lad, the ridiculous nickname, had subdued the entire Heaven’s Road.
Like him or hate him, no one dared to disregard his existence.
“What about me?” Han Bing Ning looked at Tang Tian.
Tang Tian replied: “You will serve as my backup, if I get injured, bring me back.”
“Alright.” Han Bing Ning nodded her head and went back to train.
Tang Tian immediately called out for her: “Let me teach you the Ping Family Stealth techniques.”
He needed an assistant, he was not afraid of challenging Ben Sen, although Ben Sen was much stronger than him, but he was not helpless against him. The growth in strength had never been an easy matter, to want a huge growth in a short span of time, Tang Tian thought that the only possible way was to put himself in a life or death situation, to truly incite his full potential.
Tang Tian never relied on luck.
The stimulation through experiencing life or death to draw out his potential was not any new idea. But very fewpeople were willing to do it, as the risk was too great, if one was careless, they would lose their life. Strength couldbe gained slowly, but everyone only had one life, and such a method would only be their last resort, as no onewanted to die.
Every life and death battle would be extremely exhausting, covered in bruises, most defensive abilities would berendered nil, and countless eyes would be staring at him, and Tang Tian did not want to fall to such despicablepeople.
With Han Bing Ning around, he could let go of this last remaining fear and fight all out.
~I can’t wait for it!~
Nightfall, and countless of people could not sleep.
“Did you check it out?”
The one who spoke was roughly 40 years of age, he had a stern expression, and was the leader of the Four GreatGenerals of the Qin Family, Zong Zheng Yan Mei. Zhong Zheng Yan Mei was heavily trusted by Qin Zhen, he tookcharge of the internal affairs and was extremely prestigious. His style of executing was steadfast, and under hiscontrol, the Purple Cuckoo City’s influence had been steadily increasing.
“They are not willing to say.” The manager who spoke turned pale.
“That means, they recognize who that ghost mask man is?” Zhong Zheng Yan Mei said.
“I think so.” Seeing that his master was not angry, the manager felt relieved, he hesitated for a moment: “Do we needto punish them?”
“No.” Zhong Zheng Yan Mei replied: “From today on, watch them carefully, do not beat and scold them at will.”
The manager immediately complied.
After the manager retreated, the big sturdy man by the side spoke out: “Big brother, you are too naive! Humph, Ihave seen many people who are stubborn, if you hand them over to me, I promise you, I will get them to speak!”
This man was extremely muscular and had a fierce look, with a prominent cross shaped scar on his forehead, he wasone of the Four Great Generals, Wei Han.
Zhong Zheng Yan Mei was not angry, and nodded: “I trust you on this, but even if we get them to speak, what of it?”
“What of it?” Wei Han was stumped.
“If this man is weak, then fine. But what if he is strong? Aren’t we making an enemy out of nothing?” Zhong Zheng Mei Yang shook his head: “All of these prisoners are extremely loyal to that ghost mask man, that means he isn’t any ordinary person.”
“So what?” Wei Han snorted: “Don’t tell me we have to throw out our people? Big brother, you cannot give them up!I’ve seen them, they are all capable seedlings, as long as we groom them well, our strength will definitely soar.”
“I feel what Big brother says makes sense.” Just then, Mu Ze who was by the side all along but remained silent spokeout: “I went to investigate, the ones that obtained these people isn’t only our Purple Cuckoo City, but other citiesactually received this men. A total of more than a thousand man, this is definitely an army, the ghost mask is mostlikely the commander of this army.”
“So what?” Wei Han’s neck became red: “He is only one man now, can he flip the heavens?”
Mu Ze had a smart appearance, resembling a scholar, he looked to be harmless and gentle. He smiled: “One mancannot flip the heavens. But what if, one of the families return him his subordinates?”
Wei Han sneered: “Return them to him? Which idiot would do that? To spit out the meat that they have obtained.”
Zhong Zheng Mei Yang looked thoughtfully: “Third brother, what you mean is that we should assist him?”
Mu Ze’s eyes revealed a light aura that could cause the heart to palpitate: “All of these prisoners have outstandingly strong physiques, and they have no energy at all, as long as we give them some instructions, they can form an outstanding fighting strength. They are people that were in an army, how long since the Sin Domain had an army?”
Zhong Zheng Mei Yang revealed a look of surprise.
Wei Han snorted: “So what? Even if we give in to him, it’s only 200 men, a 200 man army? Ha, I alone can kill them!The Sin Domain is not suitable for an army. Furthermore, what advantage will we have by giving in to him? ThirdBrother, the advantage that you speak of is merely theoretical, but spitting this fat meat out is real. We managed toget 200 of them with difficulty, to spit them out, if the other families were to take them in, we will have not gottenanything, it’ll be them expanding and us becoming smaller, we would be at a disadvantage then.”
Zhong Zheng Mei Yang did not speak, Wei Han’s words were equally reasonable. His eyes turned towards the ladywho had her head buried in books: “Second Sister, what do you think?”
The lady’s eyes finally left the book, her face masked with an impressive looking silver mask. This silver maskglittered brightly, contrasting with her dim eyes that looked to be an unfathomable abyss which no one could seethrough. Her hair was gorgeously mixed with different colors, each strand perfectly straight like rainbow coloredneedles expanding outwards.
“We should wait first, we still need to examine his capabilities.”
Her voice was indifferent, as if she did not care about the entire matter.
“Second sister is right.” Zhong Zheng Mei Yang nodded his head: “We shall observe him first. The Ghost MaskedMan dared to take action against the Mu’er Family, that means he will definitely make a move on the other families.We will observe for the time being, and see if he is deserving of our investment.”
Wei Han and Mu Ze nodded their heads, they have all come to a consensus.
“Xu An Zhong and Victor have revealed themselves this time too.” Zhong Zheng Mei Yang said: “Everyone, please becareful during this period.”
“Xu An Zhong came out of closed doors cultivation?” Mu Ze’s tone became serious: “Seems like the Xu Family haveanother Great General now.”
Wei Han’s face also became ugly, Xu An Zhong was Xu Ye’s brother, and his talent was definitely at the top, butstrangely, he did not have even the slightest interest towards the [Life and Death Law Imprint], which was asupreme technique, but was intoxicated in the sword. He always spoke of creating his own sword techniques, andcompletely separated himself from the Xu Family, always keeping himself in life and death situations, for him toreappear, that meant he had an absolutely great break through.
Amongst the great families in the Purple Cuckoo City, the one that posed the biggest threat to the Qin Family wasthe Xu Family. The Xu Family did not recruit outsiders, with their known short lifespan, but every generation theyhad many geniuses.
Xu An Zhong was extremely ordinary amongst the Xu Family, and adding that he rebelled against the orthodoxteachings of his family, he received the ridicule of others. But he was determined to form his own sword techniquesand has gone through life and death closed door training, and immediately beat down all of these clamors,convincing everyone of his own powers.
This so called life and death closed door training, meant that if he was unsuccessful, he would be dead. But peoplewho dared to do such thing were all extremely resilient and persevering people, and all of them received theheartfelt respect from others.
For him to come out now meant that he had been reborn once again.
The Qin Family was able to suppress all the other families, other than Qin Zhen’s unfathomable strength, the FourGreat Generals were all absolute powerhouses as well. For the Xu Family to have another Great General, theirthreat towards the Qin Family had increased once more.
“And there is that tanned trash,” Wei Han snorted, his eyes flashing a look of rage: “If not for that masked manfooling around, that tanned trash will always be hiding.”
Everyone knew he was talking Ben Sen, other than the masked man, Ben Sen had shocked everyone. The strengththat he had revealed caused everyone to be astonished. For many years, Ben Sen was so reserved to the point thathis existence seemed vague, and everyone almost forgot about him.
The Mu’er Family has always concealed their strength and bid their time, giving others the impression that they haddeclined, but after Ben Sen displayed his strength, it made everyone remember about the almost forgotten FifthGreat Family of Purple Cuckoo City.
“The current generation of Steel Guard is more or less exposed.” Mu Ze suddenly said: “I don’t think Ben Sen hasplaced any thoughts of grooming another generation of Steel Guards.”
~Mu’er Steel Guards, have always been a tradition of the Mu’er Family, something Ben Sen will definitely not giveup. If Ben Sen who has concealed his strength, placed all of his efforts in grooming the next generation of SteelGuards, they should have most likely be formed up……~
No one had expected that with the sudden appearance of the Ghost Face Masked Man, it would cause the initiallypeaceful Purple Cuckoo City to suddenly erupt into an unstable and raging situation. All of the people present wereshrewd and sharp people, but at the moment, they actually did not know what to expect.
Looming events casted its shadow over the entire city.
