Chapter 134: I'll Discipline You in Your Parents' Stead!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
"Going too far?" The red-clothed girl's face was extremely unsightly due to her attack hitting nothing, "You can't afford to offend some people. In front of me, not to mention mocking, she doesn't even have the qualification to speak!"
"Qualification to speak? That's really fresh. It's the first time I've ever heard that speaking required qualifications. I wonder where you obtained the qualifications to injure another, and who gave you the qualifications?" Duan Ling Tian's face sank as he started laughing out of extreme anger.
Even if he hadn't made a move earlier, Li Fei, with her strength at the fifth level of the Core Formation Stage, was more than sufficient to defeat this fourth level Core Formation Stage red-clothed girl.... The only reason he pulled Li Fei away was not because he was worried Li Fei would suffer a loss, but rather he was listening to what his mother said and was trying not to get into trouble.
If the matter really progressed to a point that it got out of hand, then he wasn't someone who was easy to offend!
Some of the surrounding patrons frowned as they gazed at the red-clothed girl, as they all felt she was going too far.
"Some people are born lowly like ants! Some people are born noble and lofty!" The red-clothed girl raised her head arrogantly as she spoke in a tone filled with contempt. "You asked this Young Miss where I got the qualifications? This is precisely my qualifications! In front of this Young Miss, she is just an ant. You are just an ant as well! So you don't have the qualification to speak in front of this Young Miss!" The red-clothed girl had only just finished speaking when her black whip swung out once more, flashing towards Duan Ling Tian.
"What logic! Today, I'll properly discipline you in your parents' stead! And I'll let you know that no one has the qualifications to casually trample on another's dignity!" Duan Ling Tian's voice was incomparably cold, as he was really furious.
"Die!" the red-clothed girl shouted in a low voice, and the whip in her hand seemed to transform into many black poisonous snakes that flashed towards Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian extended his hand and only used a strength close to seven ancient mammoths, easily grasping in his hand the black whip that the red-clothed girl swung at him, before he fiercely shook it.
"Pu!" The red-clothed girl's hand that held the whip trembled, and the shock caused her to spit out a mouthful of blood. She glared at Duan Ling Tian with a ghastly pale face as if she had encountered something completely unbelievable. "You.... You actually dare injure this Young Miss?"
"What a joke! You want to kill me, but I can't injure you?" Duan Ling Tian sneered, "Does this insane girl really think that she is number two beneath the heavens? She can kill others, but others can only stand and be killed by her? What logic is this!"
For a moment, the crowd of patrons in the restaurant looked at the red-clothed girl as if looking at an idiot. Although they'd seen many good-for-nothing rich kids, this was the first time they had seen one that was this bad...
"Do you know who this Young Miss is? This Young Miss will give you a chance; kneel down and kowtow three times to this Young Miss, and perhaps this Young Miss might show mercy and spare your life!" The red-clothed girl looked at Duan Ling Tian and spoke in a cold voice, as if she was giving charity to Duan Ling Tian.
"Ridiculous! Do you really think you're the judge of life and death and may easily determine another's life or death?" Duan Ling Tian strode a step forward, and an icy cold, bloody killing intent swept out from his body.
The red-clothed girl's expression went ghastly pale when she was enveloped by this killing intent, and her whole body trembled while she took a few steps back. When she looked at Duan Ling Tian once more, her gaze was as if looking at a devil. "You...don't come any closer...don't come any closer..."
"Enough!" The old woman finally said something. She walked out to stand in front of the red-clothed girl, blocking the unparalleled killing intent that was emitted from Duan Ling Tian's body.
At this moment, even the old woman couldn't help but be moved. This youth that looked to be around the age of 18 not only had a strength not one bit inferior to her clan's Young Miss, he actually possessed such a terrifying killing intent. Even across the entire Crimson Sky Kingdom, there probably wouldn't be many people who possessed such a killing intent!
"Who the heck are you?" The old woman like at Duan Ling Tian with a slightly fearful gaze, as she vaguely became aware that this violet-clothed youth wasn't simple, even to the extent that he might have an extraordinary background.
"Who am I?" Duan Ling Tian started laughing. He swept his gaze across the red-clothed girl behind the old woman. "I'm the ant she spoke of, the ant that was born to be lowly! What, the great Young Miss that's born to be noble now is only capable of hiding behind another? You don't dare to attack to show your nobility?" Duan Ling Tian's voice was filled with a mocking tone.
The red-clothed girl was so upset by that her face flushed, and she angrily shouted, "Kill him, I want him dead!"
The old woman's pupils concentrated on Duan Ling Tian and her killing intent flickered. Originally, seeing that Duan Ling Tian was so mysterious and unfathomable, she had some worries in her heart, but now, after hearing the orders of her Young Miss, she didn't hesitate anymore. Even if the violet-clothed youth's identity was even more extraordinary, today he would surely die!
The old woman attacked with her full strength. 80 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form above her, revealing her cultivation... Sixth level of the Core Formation Stage!
"Xiong Quan, don't let her disturb me." Just when the hearts of the patrons in the restaurant were in their throats due to worry for Duan Ling Tian, he instead abruptly said this, causing all of the patrons to feel baffled.
"Yes, my liege!" Xiong Quan only used the strength of 100 ancient mammoths to stop the old woman, and he fully suppressed her, causing her to be unable to attack Duan Ling Tian again.
"Seventh level of the Core Formation Stage!" The old woman looked at Xiong Quan in terror, and her face went ghastly pale.
"You... don't you come any closer... don't come any closer..." The red-clothed girl's face turned ghastly pale when she noticed that her one and only reliance was pinned down by Xiong Quan and Duan Ling Tian was walking towards her.
Duan Ling Tian walked up and raised his hand before slapping it down onto the red-clothed girl's face, and then he said, in a cold voice, "Noble Young Miss, let this lowly ant properly discipline you in your parents' stead today. This slap is for my wife!"
A smile of happiness appeared on Li Fei's face as she sat there at the side.
"You... you dare slap me?" The red-clothed girl was stupefied; even her father had never once hit her... Now, a stranger actually dared slap her!
"You'll die for sure... you'll die for sure..." The red-clothed girl looked at Duan Ling Tian with an icy cold gaze as if looking at a dead person.
Duan Ling Tian gave the red-clothed girl another slap before sneering, "This slap is for that big brother over there."
The middle-aged man with half of his face swollen glanced at Duan Ling Tian with a gaze full of gratitude.
"Kid, you'll regret this. Do you know who she is?" Meanwhile, the body of the old women that was pinned down by Xiong Quan started to lightly tremble.
"Don't worry, no matter who she is, I'll still properly discipline her in her parents' stead today and teach her how to behave..." Duan Ling Tian had a cold and unfeeling expression as he swept the old woman with his cold and indifferent gaze before shifting his gaze back to the red-clothed girl.
Slap! Slap! Slap! Slap! Slap!
Duan Ling Tian swung slap after slap at the red-clothed girl's face, causing her face to completely swell up like a pig's head.
"Didn't you say you were born noble and lofty?"
"Didn't you say I'm born lowly, and you wanted to kill me, this ant?"
Duan Ling Tian's voice was filled with indifference.
The red-clothed girl's eyes flickered with an icy cold killing intent. She seemed to be numbed to what was happening to her, as she continued to mumble, "You...you...surely...surely will...regret this..."
"Ignorant!" Duan Ling Tian gave the red-clothed girl another slap, and only after slapping her down onto the ground did he stop and shout coldly, "F**k off! Don't appear in front of me ever again... or else, don't blame me for not showing mercy!"
Meanwhile, Xiong Quan had returned to Duan Ling Tian's side. After regaining the freedom to move, the old woman supported the red-clothed girl up and swiftly walked down the stairs. Her icy cold voice echoed out from afar, "Kid, no matter who you are, and what your background is... you, prepare to face the wrath of the Fair Sun County's County Governor's Estate!"
"Fair Sun County's County Governors Estate?" The corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth curled into a sneer.
"A Country Governor's Estate Again!"
He seemed to be extremely fated with members of County Governor Estates. First it was the Swallow Mountain County's County Governor's Estate, now it was the Fair Sun County's County Governor's Estate.
"Could it be that the red-clothed girl from before is the Fair Sun County's County Governor's daughter?"
"I once heard that the Fair Sun County's County Governor's daughter was an unruly girl, but I never thought that she would be unruly to this degree!"
The expressions of many of the patrons in the restaurant went pale, and they hurriedly paid their bills and left, deeply afraid that they would court disaster by remaining here.
"Little brother." Before long, only the middle-aged man with a swollen face remained. He looked at Duan Ling Tian with a grim expression. "The Fair Sun County's County Governor's Estate is not to be trifled with. You all should hurry and leave the Imperial City."
"This is the Imperial City. Could it be that their County Governor's Estate possesses the ability to rebel against the Imperial Family?" Duan Ling Tian was slightly curious, because no matter how strong the County Governor's Estate was, it would only have its prestige spread within the County it controlled.
In the Imperial City, a mere County Governor's Estate still dared to be presumptuous?
The middle-aged man might have seen through Duan Ling Tian's indifference, and he laughed bitterly and explained, "Little brother, you are not aware.... If it was any of the other 17 counties, it wouldn't really matter. But the Fair Sun County's Counter Governor's Estate is different. If memory serves, the red-clothed girl from before should be the daughter of the Fair Sun County's County Governor, and the little sister of his majesty the Emperor's concubine. That concubine of his majesty the Emperor is also the mother of the Fifth Prince..."
The middle-aged man left the restaurant after he finished explaining, and he didn't forget to warn Duan Ling Tian once more to leave the Imperial City as soon as possible.
"In other words, the red-clothed girl from before is the cousin of the Fifth Prince?" Li Fei's beautiful eyebrows frowned. She looked at Duan Ling Tian with a slightly worried gaze. "Scoundrel, what should we do?"
They had only just arrived in the Imperial City and had already indirectly offended the Fifth Prince of the Crimson Sky Kingdom. This was no good sign...
"What, Little Fei, weren't you so confident earlier? Now you're scared?" Duan Ling Tian made fun of her.
"Hmph! I'm just worried about you." Li Fei grunted.
Duan Ling Tian returned to his seat between Li Fei and Ke Er as he said, with a light smile, "Alright, let's eat."
Before long, Duan Ling Tian looked towards the female attendant that stood afar and called her over.
"G-Guest, do you need anything?" The female attendant didn't dare to look at Duan Ling Tian, as Duan Ling Tian's domineering bearings from before had scared her as well.
"Don't be nervous, I just want to ask you if you know when the inner city is open to the public?" Duan Ling Tian forced out a trace of a smile on his face as he asked curiously.
The female attendant's expression calmed slightly as she said, "Guest, the inner city is open to public for an hour in the morning, noon, and dusk."
"What's the difference between the inner city and outer city?" Duan Ling Tian continued asking.
"The inner city is much more luxurious than the outer city. The Imperial Palace, the estates of the large clans, and Paladin Academy are all located in the inner city. However, ordinarily, even if visitors enter the inner city, they wouldn't stay the night within, as the inns within the inner city are more than 10 times more expensive than the outer city. And anyone who is able to buy an estate within the inner city is considered to be either rich or noble," the female attendant slowly explained.
