AGM 348 - Infuriated
Ouyang Ting's vengeance and hatred for Qin Wentian had never dissipated. Right now, Qin Wentian's status had become increasingly dazzling and inversely, the heaviness upon her heart, weighed more and more.
As a young missus from the direct line of descent, she was blatantly humiliated by Qin Wentian yet she had no way to get her revenge. Now that this damned old man appeared in front of her claiming that he was Qin Wentian's teacher, how could she miss this opportunity to thoroughly humiliate him?
Naturally, Ouyang Ting acted in this manner because Duan Qingshan was just beside her.
Regardless of how outstanding Qin Wentian might be, her surname was still Ouyang! Even though he was very close with Ouyang Kuangsheng, in the end, Qin Wentian was still an outsider. Given Qin Wentian's current level, no matter what aspect it was, Duan Qingshan should be able to suppress Qin Wentian completely.
Duan Qingshan was ranked #25 in the Heavenly Fate Rankings. At the very least, he wasn't someone Qin Wentian could hope to defeat right now. Since this was the case, why did she need to worry about humiliating this weak old man in front of her?
Mustang's countenance grew unsightly, yet thinking again of how critical the matter was, he could only lower himself and bow deeply, "I'm begging you Miss Ouyang, please allow me to enter."
"I can sense no sincerity in your begging." Ouyang Ting laughed. "Who the hell do you think you are, do you even have the qualifications to look at me eye to eye?"
Mustang clenched his fist tightly, his countenance growing extremely ugly to behold. He didn't think that this Ouyang Ting would be so tough to handle, deliberately making things difficult for him.
"Miss Ouyang, I'm already extremely sincere. Your position is high up and esteemed by all, why do you feel the need to make things difficult for me?" Mustang asked. Although he came from Chu and had an ordinary background, he couldn't stand to be a spineless coward, humiliated unceasingly by a young lady, even if she was from the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan.
"What? I'm making things difficult for you?" Ouyang Ting's voice grew even colder as a cruel glint of light flashed past her eyes. "Old man, on what grounds do you have to say that this princess is making things difficult for you? Now, this is no longer a problem of you wanting to enter or not. APOLOGIZE."
Duan Qingshan who was watching silently at the side couldn't help but sigh when he saw what was happening. The humiliation caused by Qin Wentian back then had been too great, and still weighed on her heart. Now that someone related to Qin Wentian had come knocking up the door, it might be good for her if she could unleash all her frustrations through this old man.
"Miss Ouyang, when have I ever offended you before?" Anger flashed in Mustang's eyes. However, as the sound of his voice faded, Duan Qingshan had already stepped forward as a huge burst of pressure bore down onto Mustang.
Mustang inclined his head to look at Duan Qingshan, but at that very instant, he only felt a piercing pain in his eyes. Mustang was overwhelmed with just his aura alone-Duan Qingshan was definitely someone of importance in the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan.
"Kneel down, and apologize."
Duan Qingshan calmly stated, in a voice of irrefutable authority.
Mustang's heart pounded with fear, he knew for a fact that this young man was extraordinary, and was many times stronger compared to him.
"I, Mustang am sorry if I've offended the two of you in any way. I humbly seek your forgiveness and will take my leave first." Mustang clasped his hands together as he gave a low bow, intending to retreat.
"I told you to kneel down and apologize." Duan Qingshan slammed out with a palm strike, blasting into Mustang's chest. Mustang felt as though the bones in his chest were about to crumble, he spat out fresh blood as his countenance turned pale white.
Mustang was currently trapped in a dilemma, he could neither advance nor retreat.
"You can kill me, but you cannot humiliate me." Mustang inclined his head, his eyes blazing with rage as he stared at Ouyang Ting and Duan Qingshan. He had done nothing but to request entry, done nothing to invite such an indignity upon himself.
Although Chu was a small country, Mustang was still an elder of the Emperor Star Academy. Usually, he would guide the juniors and in return, they would hold him in respect-he never had to endure such grave humiliation before. Wanting him to kneel down and apologize to a young lady, with no explanation other than the fact that she was from a transcendent power? Over his dead body.
At this moment, people from the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan were still going about their own businesses, entering and exiting the inn. As they heard the commotion here, they involuntarily came closer to see what exactly had happened. It seemed as though this old man had done something to offend Ouyang Ting and Duan Qingshan and was currently being forced to kneel and apologize.
Yet even though he was weak, that old man wasn't a spineless coward. He'd rather die than suffer that humiliation.
"I can kill you easily with a flip of my palm, but that would only stain my hands," Ouyang Ting icily continued, "But if you still want to be stubborn and refuse to submit, I don't mind killing you myself."
"I'm just looking for my disciple Qin Wentian, why do you guys want to humiliate me so badly?"
Mustang retorted in anger, sweeping his eyes around the crowd. Momentarily, the expressions of the spectators all faltered. This person was here looking for Qin Wentian? No wonder Ouyang Ting wanted to humiliate him and even force him to kneel down in apology.
Apparently Ouyang Ting didn't have the capability to seek revenge directly on Qin Wentian for forcing her to kneel back then, and therefore she was resorting to such a method.
But wasn't this person who claimed to be Qin Wentian's teacher a little too weak? With his level of power, how could he possibly have anything to teach Qin Wentian, who was so outstanding?
The spectators watched on with a neutral air, this was a matter between Qin Wentian and Ouyang Ting, they didn't want to seek suffering for themselves.
Mustang felt a chill in his heart as he gazed at the crowd around him.
"What do you think you are doing" At this moment, a voice of extreme coldness drifted out. Two silhouettes stepped out of the inn, these two were none other than Luo Huan and Jiang Ting. When they were introduced, they instantly took to each other and became fast friends. Jiang Ting was the fiancée of Ouyang Kuangsheng, while Luo Huan was the senior sister of Qin Wentian. As the boys were concentrating on their cultivation, both of them decided to go out for a walk, and who would have thought that they would meet such a situation.
And what made Luo Huan apoplectic with rage was that the person being coerced was none other than her teacher, Mustang.
"Go alert Wentian." Luo Huan spoke in a low voice to Little Rascal who was in her arms. Instantly, Little Rascal leapt out and transformed into a white streak of blurred shadows, directly back into the inn.
Luo Huan knew that Little Rascal was extremely intelligent and could understand the words of humans. This was why she gave it that command.
She advanced forwards, running to Mustang as she called out, "Teacher!"
"Luo Huan, why are you here?" Mustang stared in shock. Not only that, the young woman accompanying Luo Huan, had an extraordinary aura that didn't lose out to Ouyang Ting.
Jiang Ting's eyes flickered, she already understood the gist of it. After which, she turned and departed. Right now, anything she did was useless, she had to find Ouyang Kuangsheng.
"Teacher, I'm here together with Junior Brother Wentian." Luo Huan went over to support Mustang as she turned her ice-cold gaze onto Duan Qingshan and Ouyang Ting. "Why are you doing this to my teacher?"
"Is he really Qin Wentian's teacher?" Luo Huan's words verified the spectators' questions. They knew that Luo Huan was Qin Wentian's senior sister, and both had cultivated in a small sect together.
"You have no qualifications to speak here. This is the territory of my Ouyang Clan, scram!" Ouyang Ting sarcastically retorted. Luo Huan's expression stiffened as she coldly replied, "We are esteemed guests of your Ouyang Aristocrat Clan. Can your words represent your clan? You better think carefully before you reply."
"It's none of your business, I told you to scram right?" A long whip appeared in Jiang Ting's hands as she coldly stated. Seeing how the whole thing was blowing out of proportion, she couldn't help but feel a sense of unease in her heart.
"If you want to spar, I can accompany you anytime." Another long whip similarly appeared in Luo Huan's hands. She stood protectively in front of Mustang, glaring at Jiang Ting.
Duan Qingshan had an extremely unhappy expression on his face when he noticed more and more people joining the crowd.
Meanwhile, Qin Wentian who was quietly immersing himself in his cultivation at his courtyard, suddenly heard urgent sounds of 'yiyiyaya' ringing in his mind.
This was the voice of Little Rascal, it wanted to tell him something but was unable to.
Opening his eyes, Qin Wentian saw Little Rascal dashing his way, circling rapidly around him. In a flash, Qin Wentian instantly understood that something had happened.
Opening his eyes again, his powerful heart sense gushed out, covering the entire inn in an instant.
Currently, the inn was extremely quiet, with no commotion whatsoever, yet he noticed something strange, Ouyang Kuangsheng and Jiang Ting seemed to be rapidly rushing to the inn's entrance.
Qin Wentian's heart sense continued flowing outwards. Instantly, his brows twitched as he discovered Mustang's presence.
"Teacher." Qin Wentian's heart pounded. Luo Huan was standing in front of Mustang, in a confrontation against Ouyang Ting and Duan Qingshan.
"If you refuse to get out of my way, then kneel down with this old rubbish. Maybe I will forget your transgressions." Ouyang Ting's voice drifted into Qin Wentian's ears. "Don't depend on Qin Wentian. This old dog rammed into me and said that this esteemed Miss is deliberately making things difficult. And even if Qin Wentian was here, it'd still be useless."
"BOOM!" Glacial intent blasted out from Qin Wentian's body. With that sentence, Qin Wentian could vaguely understand what just happened. Mustang must have come here to look for him, and after Ouyang Ting realized that Mustang was his teacher, she must have deliberately pressured him.
"Oh? Is that so?"
A voice even colder than the icy hells of the abyss descended from the heavens. Everyone gazed upwards in shock, their expressions faltering when they didn't see anyone.That was Qin Wentian's voice, but where was the person himself?
In fact, it was Ouyang Kuangsheng and Jiang Ting who arrived first. But soon after, the spectators all felt the coldness of impending death brush their hearts.
Inclining their heads, only now did they see a silhouette descending. The cold fury of his anger was palpable amidst the demonic qi that was furiously emanating forth from his body.It was apparent to all, Qin Wentian was truly angered.
His ice-like eyes swept over to Ouyang Ting, and instantly, she felt a bone-chilling cold shuddering her very soul. An overwhelming killing intent gushed right into her body causing it to involuntary tremble. Qin Wentian's eyes turned fiend-like, appearing incomparably terrifying.
Ouyang Ting's heart palpitated as she broke into a cold sweat. Why should she be so afraid of him? She was from the Ouyang Clan and Duan Qingshan was also present. By right, she had nothing to fear.
Today, regardless, she had to humiliate that old fellow.
A raging wind gusted as Qin Wentian landed beside Mustang. The killing intent he was exuding gradually retracted, as flashes of guilt appeared in his eyes when he saw Mustang's haggard countenance.
"Teacher, I'm sorry... you've suffered because of me." Qin Wentian lowered his head.
However, only pride could be seen in Mustang's eyes. He had felt the domineering aura of Qin Wentian and could sense that if the current Qin Wentian were to fight against the vice headmaster of the Emperor Star Academy Ren Qianxing, Qin Wentian would definitely win effortlessly. If comparing auras, Ren Qiangxing's was akin to a gentle spring breeze, while Qin Wentian's was more akin to that of a raging cyclone. Within a short few years, his student had actually improved at such a fearsome rate and had grown to such an extent.
"I'm fine." Mustang smiled, feeling gratified in his heart. "I can set my heart at ease now seeing that you guys are safe. You've undergone such a remarkable improvement."
"Teacher, wait for me to settle things here first." Qin Wentian turned as he shifted his gaze onto Ouyang Ting and Duan Qingshan. An immense pressure burst forth from him, as his ice-cold intent covered the entire area.
"Unforgivable." Qin Wentian voice echoed in the stillness of the air as his killing intent gushed forwards, enveloping Ouyang Ting within. The sound of an explosion rang out and the crowd heard Ouyang Ting let out a groan. They stared in shock at her appearance; her countenance had turned a ghastly white, with blood seeping from the corners of her mouth.
