Chapter 253: He, Must Die!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
In the instant that the old man was cut into two, the pupils of the middle-aged man and the other grey-clothed old man constricted, and their faces flushed red as if they were held by the neck by someone, completely unable to catch their breaths!
And at the same instant, they were enraged to the point that their eyes were splitting. They only saw an incomparably swift figure arrive before them in the blink of an eye.
At this moment, their heartbeats had completely stopped.
Xiong Quan raised his hand and a green sword light flashed by. On the sword light, a mysterious aura intertwined.
Advanced Sword Force!
Where the sword lights pointed at, two lines of blood whirled out.
The middle-aged man and the grey-clothed old man maintained astonished expressions as their figures trembled and then crashed onto the ground without any signs of life.
The eyes of the two were opened wide like saucers, dying with everlasting regret.
Perhaps even in their wildest dreams, they'd never imagined that there would be such a terrifying existence by the side of the violet-clothed young man that they looked down upon....
"Void....Second level of the Void Prying Stage!" The body of Ma Qin, who was concealed far in the distance, trembled. His expression instantly went ghastly pale as he looked at the 3,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes in the sky, and his eyes revealed a sense of panic and terror.
He never imagined that the three Half-step Void Stage Powerhouses would all die in the blink of an eye.
And what he never imagined even more was that there would actually be a Void Prying Stage powerhouse by the violet-clothed young man's side. Moreover, it was a second level Void Prying Stage powerhouse!
At this moment, his heart was filled with regret.
He shouldn't have been greedy!
Now, not only was the 10 plus million gold that he saw as already his gone, but he had even offended this violet-clothed young man that had a Void Prying Stage powerhouse by his side.
"I hope he won't pursue the matter further...." Even though the possibility was extremely slim, this thought couldn't help but arise within Ma Qin's heart.
Ma Qin, who had a perturbed expression, took a deep breath and silently prepared to leave.
However, Ma Qin's face went completely deathly pale when he saw the person that had appeared before him block his path, and his voice trembled. "Lor....Lord...."
Xiong Quan stared at Ma Qin with a cold and indifferent gaze and paid no attention to him.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth curled into a sneer as he walked out in large strides to arrive before Ma Qin, and he looked at Ma Qin with a calm gaze. "Manager Ma Qin, I trust you've been well since we parted...."
Ma Qin seemed to have seen a devil when he saw Duan Ling Tian. He knelt down on the spot and his body shivered. "Lord, spare me! I shouldn't have been greedy, I shouldn't have told them of Lord's whereabouts....Lord, I was wrong, please I beg you to spare me."
"Hmph!" Duan Ling Tian swept Ma Qin with a cold gaze, then he called the two little girls over before walking towards the Ma Clan Auction House.
"Xiong Quan, bring him along....Ma Clan, today I'll make you give me an explanation!" Duan Ling Tian's voice sounded out and caused Ma Qin's face to become incomparably ghastly pale.
If the clan were to be alerted of this matter, he could imagine his end....
What was most important to an auction house was its reputation.
And now, for the sake of his selfish desire, he'd acted on his own and singlehandedly destroyed the reputation of the Ma Clan Auction House!
Within the Ma Clan Auction House, all the guests had already left, and only some Ma Clan members remained.
At the rear of the auction house, four old men were gathered there.
"Geezer Hu, when you saw that Origin Strengthening Pill with a purity of 91% today, you were surely stunned, right?" A robust old man in red clothes looked at Hu Jun and laughed.
"Do you have to ask? An Origin Strengthening Pill with a purity of 91%....However, the luck of the young man is really not bad, being able to obtain such an Origin Strengthening Pill and earning eight million gold." A blue-clothed old man nodded, and a sense of jealousy appeared on his face.
"What a pity, we didn't collect the administration fee from the young man....That's 800,000 gold." A yellow-clothed old man sighed with a face full of regret.
"Hmph! Short-sighted! Selling out the Origin Strengthening Pill with a purity of 91% also spread out the name of our Ma Clan Auction House. Are you still worried we can't recoup that mere 800,000 gold?" Hu Jun glanced at the yellow-clothed old man in contempt.
"Your Ma Clan Auction House still has a reputation to talk about?" Right at this moment, a cold and indifferent voice sounded out. It caused the faces of the four old men, including Hu Jun's, to go grim.
Duan Ling Tian walked in with large strides.
"It's you!" Hu Jun recognized Duan Ling Tian, and his eyes squinted. "What do you mean by what you said earlier?"
"Geezer Hu, who's he?" The other three old men looked at Duan Ling Tian and frowned. They were all dissatisfied with what Duan Ling Tian said earlier.
Hu Jun let out a breath and said, "He's the guest that auctioned the 91% purity Origin Strengthening Pill."
"Hmm?" Instantly, the three old men looked at Duan Ling Tian in surprise.
"What is the meaning of what I said earlier?" Duan Ling Tian looked at Hu Jun and then said indifferently, "Then I want to know even more, what're the intentions of your Ma Clan Auction House....Xiong Quan, bring him in."
Xiong Quan walked in with large strides, and he had a middle-aged man held in his hand.
The middle-aged man had a deathly pale expression, and when he saw Hu Jun and the others, his gaze was averting them, vaguely showing a trace of dread....
"Manager Qin?" Hu Jun frowned when he saw Ma Qin, who was held in Xiong Quan's hand, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian. "Guest, aren't you going too far?"
"Let him go!" The red-clothed old man who had an explosive temper glared, then he took a step forward, wanting to seize Ma Qin from Xiong Quan.
Above him, 1,500 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form!
Obviously, he was an existence at the Half-step Void Stage.
"Hmph!" Xiong Quan's gaze went cold. The strength of over 2,000 ancient mammoths exploded out with the raise of his hand, and his Origin Energy condensed into a palm and then smashed onto the red-clothed old man, blasting him flying.
The red-clothed old man transformed into an arrow that had left the bowstring and fiercely smashed into the wall. Instantly, the entire wall broke into pieces, and a hideous fissure appeared there.
The red-clothed old man spat out a mouthful of blood, and his face went deathly pale when he gazed at the 2,000 plus ancient mammoth silhouettes that flashed above Xiong Quan.
"Void....Void Prying Stage!" Not only was the red-clothed old man astonished, but the other three old men, including Hu Jun, all had deathly pale expressions.
"Three Half-step Void Stage martial artists....Not bad." Duan Ling Tian's gaze flashed past the three old men besides Hu Jun and examined the them before he slowly nodded.
After hearing what Duan Ling Tian said and then looking at Duan Ling Tian's attitude, the three old men were angered to the point that their faces were green.
However, when their gazes descended onto Xiong Quan, they suppressed the rage in their hearts.
They could only endure.
Not to mention them, even the entire Ma Clan would find it difficult to go against an existence at the Void Prying Stage.
Duan Ling Tian wasn't surprised when he saw the old men go silent, as Xiong Quan was sufficient to deter them. Duan Ling Tian's gaze quickly descended onto Hu Jun and he said indifferently, "You asked me earlier if was going too far?"
Hu Jun's face was unsightly, but he still took a deep breath and said, "Guest, I want to know why you did this."
"Why did I do this?" Duan Ling Tian's eyes squinted, and he had an awe-inspiring killing intent on his figure as he looked at Ma Qin, who was held by Xiong Quan. "You can ask him."
Instantly, Hu Jun's gaze looked at Ma Qin. "Manager Qin, what actually happened?"
Ma Qin's face was ghastly pale. How could he say it?
Could he say the he was covetous of the violet-clothed young man's wealth and had joined hands to kill the violet-clothed young man and seize all his possessions?
"Ma Qin!" The other three old men were all existences at the Half-step Void Stage and were Supreme Elders of the Ma Clan. Now, their gazes all descended onto Ma Qin.
Ma Qin took a deep breath. He knew that he had to speak, and he hurriedly said, "Supreme Elders, Lord Hu Jun, this is what happened....During tonight's auction, that Lord Xia Guang of the Jade Magnolia Trading Company was in room number 7, and he took a fancy to the Goldfur Mouse that this guest here obtained.
"When the auction was about to finish, he looked for me and made a promise. So long as I tell him about the whereabouts of this guest, then after he killed this guest, he would only want the infant Goldfur Mouse....And all the wealth in the possession of this guest would be mine." As he spoke up to this point, Ma Qin's face revealed a bitter smile.
Hu Jun and the other old men's faces had went gloomy halfway through Ma Qin's explanation.
And when they heard the entire story from Ma Qin, their faces were incomparably gloomy, and they glared angrily at Ma Qin. "Ma Qin, as the Manager of the Ma Clan Auction House, not only did you not make a good example of yourself, but you colluded with others to make a move on a guest.... Where do you place our Ma Clan Auction House? Where do you place the clan?"
Even though Ma Qin hadn't finished speaking of what happened later on, they could roughly guess that the Jade Magnolia Trading Company's Xia Guang was probably dead.
Ma Qin became dejected and despondent, as if he had lost all the strength in his body.
He knew that even if the violet-clothed young man didn't kill him, and even if he could escape death, it would still be difficult for him to escape the punishment of the clan.
His entire life could be considered to be destroyed.
Destroyed by a single word: greed!
If the heavens gave him a chance to do it all over again, he wouldn't dare be greedy even if he was beaten to death.
But unfortunately, all this was only an extravagant hope, as there was no medicine for regret in the world.
"Now you understand?" Duan Ling Tian's faze flashed past the four old men, and the corners of his mouth curled into a sneer. "Now, do you still think I'm going too far?"
The corners of the four old men's mouths held bitter smiles, and Hu Jun took a deep breath. "Guest, all of this is the fault of our Ma Clan Auction House. So long as guest is willing to minimize the problems and overlook them, we're willing to compensate you."
"Yes." The other three old men hurriedly nodded.
It would be fine if the young man was just ordinary, but the young man had a formidable Void Prying Stage powerhouse by his side.
If they were to truly piss off the young man, not to mention the fact that they would surely die, it would be difficult even for their Ma Clan to escape this calamity.
"Compensation?" Duan Ling Tian suddenly started laughing, laughing extremely heartily. "If there's compensation....Everything can be discussed. However, let me say it first, we can minimize the problems and overlook them, but....he must die!" As he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian's gaze descended onto Ma Qin's figure.
Duan Ling Tian's voice in Ma Qin's ears seemed to transform into a life-taking talisman, causing Ma Qin's face to go deathly pale. "Lord, spare me!"
