Chapter 179: Huge Business Deal
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
After seeing the two middle-aged men's faces turn black, losing vitality from the poison, and dying from suicide, Zhao Gang and Zhang Qian glanced at each other before their faces went grim. "Death Soldiers!"
"Death Soldiers? What Death Soldiers?" Duan Ling Tian's brows frowned. He didn't understand why Zhao Gang and Zhang Qian would have such a huge reaction.
Zhang Qian and Zhao Gang glanced at Duan Ling Tian and felt their scalps go numb!
Who the heck did this Young Master offend?
Zhang Qian took a deep breath and slowly explained, "Young Master, the so-called Death Soldiers are a group of pawns that are fearless of death and were trained by people who have great plans and schemes. These Death Soldiers are only loyal to their liege and only serve one liege with their lives! As long as their liege wishes it, they are willing to give up everything, including their lives, for their liege!"
"During the process of carrying out a mission, once the mission fails, these Death Soldiers would rather die than spit out the identity of their liege." After Zhang Qian finished speaking, he and Zhao Gang looked at Duan Ling Tian together.
They were both curious as to how this Young Master offended the person behind these Death Soldiers.
"So these are Death Soldiers." Duan Ling Tian nodded, and a trace of coldness arose within his heart. For the sake of completing the mission, they were fearless of death... These people were virtually machines of slaughter that were deprived of any human feelings!
"Young Master, have you offended someone?" Zhao Gang asked in a slightly hesitant manner.
Duan Ling Tian's brows raised as he directly said, "I've offended many people. Don't you both know of the Su Clan?"
"Young Master, logically speaking, it's impossible that these Death Soldiers are people from the Su Clan...." Zhang Qian shook his head. "According to my knowledge, these Death Soldiers usually come from the army... Only people who possess high statuses would secretly gather these people and form a Death Corps under their command. At the critical juncture, these Death Corps would be able to transform into sharp blades that directly enter the chests of their enemies!"
"Then who do you think these Death Soldier most probably belong to?" Duan Ling Tian frowned lightly as he asked.
"Young Master, within the Imperial City, these Death Soldiers are more commonly seen under the command of the various Princes of the imperial family. As long as they are Princes who have the intention to compete for the seat of the Emperor, then basically all of them without exception have trained a group of Death Soldiers under their command," Zhao Gang said, with a serious expression, and his eyes couldn't help but emit a trace of suspicion within his eyes.
Could it be that the Young Master had a grudge with someone that has a lofty status?
Duan Ling Tian's eyes focused and a cold light flashed within.
He didn't have to ponder before being able to guess that the three Death Soldiers that had just appeared to assassinate him were either the Third Prince's people or the Fifth Prince's people.
"Third Prince, Fifth Prince... No matter who did this, I hope you two don't go too far; otherwise, not to mention that the seat of the Emperor will not be fated for you two, even your lives will be difficult to maintain!" Duan Ling Tian"s face sank as killing intent arose within his heart.
"Let's go home." Duan Ling Tian called Zhao Gang and Zhang Qian before directly walking towards his house.
On the way, Duan Ling Tian didn't forget to teach a lesson to the two of them. "When the two of you secretly follow me in the future, can you be a little bit more professional? I'd only just walked out of Paladin Academy and I'd noticed the tracks of you two...."
As Duan Ling Tian taught them a lesson, he also slowly imbued the practical knowledge of tracking he learnt from his previous life as a weapons specialist into the two of them.
When had Zhang Qian and Zhao Gang ever heard of such fresh things? They listened so well that they seemed like they were infatuated and intoxicated with what Duan Ling Tian taught them....
Never had they imagined that merely tracking would actually have so much to pay attention to!
The gazes with which the two of them looked at Duan Ling Tian was even more respectful. And at the same time, they couldn't help but be curious inwardly. Where the heck did this youth actually learn all these things?
"You two, take a rest and prepare. This Young Master will take you two out to conduct a huge business deal tonight," Duan Ling Tian said to Zhang Qian and Zhao Gang after they returned home. He then walked into the main building by himself and returned to his room.
Huge business deal?
Zhang Qian and Zhao Gang glanced at each other and both saw bitter smiles on each other's faces.
They naturally knew what this huge business deal the Young Master spoke of was; however, did they have any room to choose now?
Precisely as the saying goes: make one wrong move, and every move after that will be wrong....
The two of them helplessly shook their heads before obediently returning to their rooms to rest.
As for Duan Ling Tian, after he returned, he didn't even have the time to greet the three beauties within his house before directly returning to his room.
He withdrew the cauldron and subsequently started refining the Dragon Blood Pill.
After the Dragon Blood Pill was completed, Duan Ling Tian consumed it.
Instantly, his fleshly body completed the tempering for the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage and gained an extra strength of one ancient mammoth.
This would also mean that his next step would be to directly charge towards the seventh level of the Core Formation Stage.
"I've finally nearly caught up to those two girls." A smile appeared on Duan Ling Tian's face.
Since they had settled down in the Imperial City's inner city, no matter whether it was Ke Er or Li Fei, they both spent over 10 hours a day cultivating under the assistance of an inexhaustible supply of high purity Origin Increasing Pills.
Presently, the two girls had already broken through to the seventh level of the Core Formation Stage in succession!
But Duan Ling Tian was confident that with his current cultivation speed, it wouldn't be long from now before he'd catch up to the two girls' footsteps.
"Young Master, it's time for food." A voice that was pleasing to the ear sounded from outside. Duan Ling Tian opened the door and saw Ke Er there.
Duan Ling Tian was in a slight trance when he saw the slim and graceful young girl.
The current Ke Er wasn't the little girl from before; she had already matured.
Looking at Ke Er's beautiful face that was as white as jade, and the pair of plump buds before her chest, Duan Ling Tian's lower regions went hot as evil intentions arose within his heart... Maybe he should find a time to eat up this girl Ke Er.
"Young Master, I'm leaving first. You hurry up and come eat as well." Ke Er had noticed Duan Ling Tian's gaze and her heartbeat increased in speed. Her face blushed as she quickly walked out.
"This little girl is still shy." Duan Ling Tian shook his head and chased after her.
After finishing their meal, Duan Ling Tian returned to his room and withdrew the information of the various businesses under the Su Clan and the people in charge of those businesses, before starting to look through it.
In the end, he locked in a target.
"Su Yong, sixth level Nascent Soul martial artist, cousin of the Su Clan's Grand Elder, Su Nan, and manages the Su Clan's largest medicine store within the Imperial City, Calmed Clouds Pavilion... He has two children that commit all sorts of atrocities, and every time it was Su Yong who cleaned up after their mess by ruthlessly annihilating any threats!"
After he finished looking through Su Yong's information, Duan Ling Tian decided on him.
The main reason why he chose Su Yong was naturally because of his relationship with Su Nan.
The second reason was due to his despicable actions.
Besides having two ignorant and incompetent children that were profligate sons, he himself was stained with despicable deeds....
Like the old saying: like father like son.
"In this world where the strong are revered, it's like this... There is absolutely no law to be spoken of, and the fist is the absolute principle!"
"Just like this Su Yong; it can be said that everyone within the Imperial City knows of the actions of Su Yong and his 2 sons... However, even the Imperial Family that controls the entire Crimson Sky Kingdom pretends that they don't notice for the sake of the Su Clan's face, and thus don't punish Su Yong and his sons." Although Duan Ling Tian didn't plan on being some sort of savior, since he had decided to give the Su Clan a taste of his strength, he naturally wouldn't show mercy.
"Blame yourself for being misfortunate. If it wasn't for your Su Clan going overboard, I wouldn't have targeted you." Duan Ling Tian finished looking through the other information of Su Yong before leaving his room.
Deep into the night, when it was so dark that one was unable to see their own hand in front of them.
At the northern area of the Imperial City's inner city was a residential area, and one of the courtyard houses amongst them was extremely spacious.
Within the courtyard house, the lights were out, as the person inside had obviously fallen asleep.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Three figures were like owls as they passed the courtyard house's enclosing wall before sneaking into the courtyard house.
"Let's go!" Under the shine of moonlight, the figure of the person in the lead appeared, and it was a youth wearing black clothes and had his face covered.
It was precisely Duan Ling Tian!
His target tonight was the Su Clan's Su Yong.
This Su Yong didn't stay within the Su Clan estate. Instead, he bought a courtyard house outside of the Su Clan estate by himself and kept a few mistresses. He passed his days extremely comfortably.
Under Duan Ling Tian's lead, Zhao Gang and Zhang Qian, who similarly wore black clothes and covered their faces, silently followed behind him.
Through the moonlight, the helplessness within their eyes could be seen.
When had they ever been so sneaky?
"Young Master, from what I know, that Su Yong is only at the sixth level of the Nascent Soul Stage. Can't we be straightforward and directly charge in to kill him?" Zhang Qian asked.
Although Zhao Gang didn't speak, he still nodded in deep agreement.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth twitched.
Why did he feel that these two fellows were even more savage than him?
"Straightforward?" Duan Ling Tian sneered in a low voice. "If we directly charge in, then what would be the difference of having me here? Don't forget what your General asked you to follow me for...."
Zhao Gang and Zhang Qian came to a sudden understanding. So the Young Master was training them.
"Unless something happens, kill Su Yong only...." Duan Ling Tian brought Zhang Qian and Zhao Gang to enter the main building and arrived outside the innermost master bedroom.
Duan Ling Tian pushed out his palm and shook open the door's lock.
The room door was pushed open by Duan Ling Tian.
"Who?!" Instantly, an explosive shout sounded from within the room, and subsequently a light was lit within the room. The entire room was completely illuminated.
The middle-aged man that was originally completely naked shrouded himself with a robe at the front of the bed before jumping down from the bed and opening his pair of fierce triangular eyes widely to stare fixedly at Duan Ling Tian's group of three, who wore black clothes and had their faces covered. He said, with a gloomy expression, "Who are you all?"
"Ah!" A young girl that looked to be around the age of 20 cowered at the corner of the bed in fear. She pulled over the sheets to cover her buck naked body.
"Kill him!" Duan Ling Tian's eyes focused as he shouted in a low voice with his command.
Zhang Qian and Zhao Gang moved to directly flash towards the middle-aged man. They had an imposing manner that pierced through the sky!
1,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared above each of them....
"Two seventh level Nascent Soul martial artists!" The middle-aged man's, or in other words, Su Yong's, face went deathly pale, as he realized that these people didn't come with good intentions.
His gaze quickly descended upon the nearby window, and his body moved before breaking the window with a loud crash and going out.
Above him, 800 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared ....
Zhang Qian and Zhao Gang's pupils constricted as they pursued.
"No... Don't kill me!" When she saw Duan Ling Tian approaching, the expression of the young girl who cowered at the corner of the bed went pale, and her eyes emitted terror.
