Chapter 117: Duan Ling Tian's Methods
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Spring Breeze House.
In a secluded room, the heavy breathing of a man and woman sounded from within.
"Roar!" Lian Ke emitted a low roar like a wild beast before falling onto the prostitute's body in exhaustion.
"Lian Ke." Just at this moment, a voice suddenly entered into the room.
"Who?" Lian Ke was scared to the point that his body froze, and the prostitute that was under him was shivering as well...
Duan Ling Tian leaned outside the window as he lazily said, "Lian Ke, you probably still don't know that you've been betrayed by your brother, right?"
"Who are you? What do you mean?" Lian Ke's face slightly distorted as he slowly got off the bed and walked towards the window.
"Won't you know if you rush back home and go take a look now? Tsk tsk, Tong Lin fooled you to come to the Spring Breeze House and then he himself went to have a good time with your concubine..." Duan Ling Tian finished his sentence and immediately left.
He still had an important matter to take care of.
Lian Ke opened up the window, but all he saw was a figure disappearing in the distance, causing him to unconsciously frown.
Lian Ke took a deep breath and put on his clothes before going to the room next door to look for Tong Lin. But he noticed that Tong Lin wasn't there at all and had vanished without a trace.
A bad premonition arose in his heart...
"Tong Lin!" Lian Ke's face slightly sank. Although he had a good relationship with Tong Lin, it wasn't to the extent of wearing the same clothes, or sharing the same woman.
The sky was clear and starless above the Lian Clan Estate.
Lian Ke galloped into the estate, going straight for the courtyard his concubine lived in.
Lian Ke had only been here for a short while before three war horses galloped swiftly and approached the main door of the Lian Clan Estate.
A bearded man who wore light armor and was being followed by two generals got off his horse and walked into the Lian Clan Estate.
"Commander, Sir!" The Lian Clan members hurriedly saluted when they saw the bearded man.
This man was the Commander of the Black Armor Army, an existence similar to the local tyrant of Black Armor City... and he was even the sworn brother of the Lian Clan's Patriarch.
"Where does the concubine your Young Patriarch recently admitted stay at?" The bearded man's voice was like thunder as he looked at one of the Lian Clan disciples.
The Lian Clan disciple's face went ghastly pale, then he pointed towards the north.
"Lead the way!" The bearded man glared, and his breathing was slightly hurried.
He had only just received news that his son was plotted against by someone and that there would be a threat to his life. And as such, he didn't dare hesitate and brought along two Vice Commanders before rushing over.
At this moment, outside the pitch black room.
A figure entered the courtyard before kicking the door open and entering the room.
The room's door being kicked open startled awake the man and woman inside the room.
"Who's so daring as to actually disturb my sleep?"
A familiar voice sounded, causing the person who kicked open the door, in other words, the Lian Clan's Young Patriarch's, Lian Ke's, body to tremble as if struck by lightning.
When he lit a candle and saw the naked pair on the bed, his eyes turned bloodshot as he shouted in a fierce voice, "Tong Lin, you despicable scum!"
When Tong Ling noticed Lian Ke's appearance, he was slightly muddle-headed.
Only now did he notice that he wasn't at the Spring Breeze House anymore.
He lowered his head to look, and the beautiful young girl who hid shivering at the corner of the bed and looked at him in fear, wasn't she precisely the concubine Lian Ke had just recently admitted?
He just now... was expressing himself on top of this concubine?
He felt his scalp go slightly numb. "What's going on?"
Tong Lin looked at Lian Ke in panic. "Brother, it isn't what you think it is; it's a misunderstanding. This is all a misunderstanding... Even I don't know how I got into your concubine's room."
"Misunderstanding?" Lian Ke's face sank as he walked up two steps and directly pulled Tong Lin off the bed.
Lian Ke struck out his fist, causing Tong Lin to spit out a mouthful of blood on floor. There were even some shattered teeth mixed within.
Tong Lin got angry as well; he smashed his fist out and blasted Lian Ke away.
"Lian Ke, you actually dare to strike me?! Not to mention this is a misunderstanding, even if it isn't, I f**ked your woman and you should be honoured! If it wasn't for our Black Armor Army, could your Lian Clan be the number one clan in Black Armor City?" Tong Lin's voice was cold and indifferent, and mixed within was an awe-inducing coldness.
"Good... good! Tong Lin, I'll kill you today." Lian Ke rushed forward once again and started battling Tong Lin with his raging Origin Energy.
However, the both of them were on par and could not discern superiority in a short amount of time...
"Young Master." Just at this moment, when Lian Ke was forced to retreat by Tong Lin, a voice sounded.
An attendant that wore the Lian Clan's servants' clothes walked in quickly and respectfully passed the broom in his hand to Lian Ke.
Lian Ke didn't think anything of it and took the broom in his hand, then he poured his Origin Energy into it and smashed it towards Tong Lin.
"Pfft! Lian Ke, could it be that you think that you can use a broom to defeat...." Tong Lin stuck his fist towards the broom.
However, he hadn't finished his sentence when a strand of dusky grey force was emitted from the broom, It was like a thousand-pound hammer as it smashed down towards him. The force knocked away his fist and the terrifying strength within continued on and smashed directly on his head.
Brain matter splattered all over Lian Ke's face, causing him to be dumbstruck.
He looked at the broom in his hand as if he was looking at a monster.
"That was... an offense inscription? Who the heck are you?!" In this instant, Lian Ke seemed to understand something as he turned around.
But what he noticed was that the fellow that passed him the broom had vanished.
He realized that he had been schemed against, and this was all just a trap.
"Ah!" Just at this moment, Lian Ke's concubine saw Tong Lin's mangled corpse and was scared to the point of screaming before fainting.
Lian Ke took a deep breath. He knew that no matter what, what happened here couldn't spread. If word of this got out, his Lian Clan would surely suffer the rage of the Black Armor Army, which could even injure the vitality of the clan.
If the Black Armor Army really were to roll out towards the Lian Clan, that was no laughing matter...
Just when he calmed himself down and was about to secretly deal with Tong Lin's corpse.
"Lin!" A roar of rage that sounded like explosive thunder caused Lian Ke's expression to turn ghastly pale!
This voice was a voice Lian Ke was extremely familiar with.
Why would he come here?
For a moment, Lian Ke felt a wave of helplessness surge in his heart, as he realized that the person who devised this trap had purposely forced him on this road to ruin...
"Uncle Lei, hear me out!" Lian Ke tossed away the broom that was tainted full of blood and looked at the bearded man in front of him in panic.
"Lian Ke, all my son did was play with your concubine... you actually killed my son for a woman? Die!" In a state of explosive rage, the bearded man, or in other words, the Black Armor Army's Commander, struck out his fist which carried with it the force of a tempest.
"Brother Lei, show mercy!" Just at this moment, a figure flashed over like a gust of wind but was stopped by the two Black Armor Army Vice Commanders.
The bearded man's attack, which contained his rage, blasted open Lian Ke's head.
"My son!" The person who had just arrived was none other than the Lian Clan's Patriarch. Seeing his son being killed with his own two eyes caused him to be enraged. He blasted away the two Black Armor Army Vice Commander's and started battling the bearded man.
Before long, the entire Lian Clan was alarmed, and no one noticed that while the Lian Clan Estate was in chaos, a clan servant had silently left.
"Done!" After taking off the servant's outfit, Duan Ling Tian's body flashed like a spirit serpent and disappeared at the end of the road.
He knew that his mission had been smoothly completed.
After returning to the inn and taking a bath, Duan Ling Tian sat cross-legged on his bed and started tempering his fleshly body with Origin Energy.
"Crackle crackle..." In the blink of an eye, Duan Ling Tian could clearly feel the muscles and bones in his body undergoing a metamorphosis. Similarly, his fleshly body and lifeblood completed the final tempering.
"This..." Duan Ling Tian had a pleasantly surprised expression, as he didn't expect that he would complete the third level of Core Formation Stage fleshly body tempering at this time.
Duan Ling Tian lightly clenched his fists.
Above him, six ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form... And this was only the strength of Duan Ling Tian's fleshly body!
When Duan Ling Tian exerted his Origin Energy as well, three more ancient mammoths silhouettes appeared above him.
Presently, he was able to exert the strength of nine ancient mammoths.
"What an unexpected pleasant surprise. First I completed the mission, and now my strength broke through..." A brilliant smile appeared on Duan Ling Tian's face.
Deep in the night, Duan Ling Tian fell asleep.
The next day, the sound of the door being knocked disturbed Duan Ling Tian's sweet dreams.
He opened the door only to have the Captain Yang Da walk in bluntly. He looked at Duan Ling Tian, who was still drowsy, with a weird expression. "You.... How did you do it?"
Early this morning, Yang Da heard about what happened in the Lian Clan last night, the major event that caused the entire Black Armor City to quake.
The three great Commanders of the Black Armor Army were all heavily injured by the Lian Clan elders, whereas the Lian Clan Patriarch was nearly killed.
After countless inquiries, he finally found out the ins and outs of the matter. Everything that happened stemmed from the conflict between the son of the Black Armor Army's Commander and the Lian Clan's Patriarch's son...
As far as he was concerned, it was filled with questionable points, and thus at the first moment, he thought of Duan Ling Tian...
"What? How did I do what?" Duan Ling Tian asked while yawning.
"Don't act stupid! What happened at the Lian Clan last night? Don't tell me you don't know," Yang Da derided.
"So it was that matter."
Duan Ling Tian cleared his head before shaking it. "It's only a small matter and it's not even worthy of being mentioned."
The corners of Yang Da's mouth twitched, as he wondered if the youth in front of him had said that on purpose.
Their Iron Blood Army had schemed for years but were unable to cause the Lian Clan and Black Armor Army to fall out and become enemies, but now it was completed by this youth in front of him in but just a night.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Yang Da as he asked, "Right, my mission is considered complete, right?"
Yang Da nodded, then his eyes flashed with a trace of curiosity. "How did you actually do it?"
Duan Ling Tian roughly explained the whole course of the incident.
After hearing the entire story, Yang Da couldn't help but be moved, as he didn't think that this youth would have such scheming ability. He was able to create so much trouble by only using Lian Ke's concubine...
More importantly, the entire matter was conducted perfectly and could also be said to be flawless.
Maybe Lian Ke had some suspicions, but he didn't even have the chance to explain before being annihilated by the Black Armor Army's Commander, who was in grief of the loss of his son.
"There's something I can't get wrap head around. Even if Lian Ke was any angrier, he probably wouldn't go so far as to kill Tong Lin for a concubine, right?" Yang Da looked at Duan Ling Tian with a burning gaze.
"Indeed. Although he was enraged at the time, he didn't have any killing intent on him." Duan Ling Tian nodded.
"How did you do it?" Yang Da had a face full of anticipation.
"Secret." Duan Ling Tian shrugged before going to bathe and change his clothes.
"You..." Yang Da was slightly irritated, but it just so happened that he couldn't take any action against Duan Ling Tian, and thus he could only laugh bitterly.
