Peerless Martial God - Chapter 488
Chapter 488: The Mysterious Group
Lin Feng appeared in the air above the cultivation tower of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue. On the ground, the members of the courtyard raised their heads to look at him and his winged tiger.
In such a short period of time, Lin Feng had appeared above their tower again. Besides, this time, he had brought thousands of soldiers with him. He wanted to exterminate the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue.
At the foot of the cultivation tower there were a group of people who slowly rose into the air waiting. Duan Tian Lang was standing in the middle of that group. He looked majestic and had regained his commanding presence.
Apart from Duan Tian Lang, there were a few people -they were not from the Holy Courtyard- but they were allied with Duan Tian Lang at that moment. The Qi from that group was extremely powerful;they were all at the Xuan Qi layer. This time, the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue had appeared in full strength.
’’It seems like you've been preparing for this battle.’’ Said Lin Feng while giving a faint scowl. Duan Tian Lang looked like he was waiting for him.
’’I've been waiting for a while.’’ Said Duan Tian Lang. His eyes were as cold as ice. This time, he didn't look scared at all.
Lin Feng's eyes also grew cold. He quickly glanced at those people and asked himself why Duan Tian Lang was acting so confident.
Lin Feng continued to look at those people, but he really couldn't notice anything strange. They looked extremely ordinary, and precisely because of that, this situation seemed unusually dangerous.
But it was clear to Lin Feng that those people wouldn't be that ordinary, otherwise why would they be standing with Duan Tian Lang?
’’Those eighteen cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer from the other night, did you send them?’’ Asked Lin Feng while looking at those people. In total, there were five people standing by Duan Tian Lang's side. It seemed like they were protecting him.
Those five people looked at Lin Feng perplexed. Then one of them asked: ’’Did you kill them?’’
That sentence was simple but in a way he was admitting that those people were sent by them.
’’I did.’’ Said Lin Feng indifferently while nodding. Their eyes grew sharp but they didn't say anything, they were just glaring at Lin Feng.
’’Among you and Duan Tian Lang, who is the boss and who is the servant?’’ Asked Lin Feng. What he meant was, between Duan Tian Lang and those five people, who had a higher status? Those five people were probably stronger than those eighteen cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer he fought last time, besides, Duan Tian Lang looked extremely confident with them here. It seemed like they had the strength to make Duan Tian Lang feel at ease. Lin Feng believed that these people's social status must be very high. The loss of those eighteen cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer seemed like nothing to them, the fact that they were dead didn't seem to affect those five people greatly, there was only a slight change in their expressions.
Eighteen cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer were a powerful force, if they had been part of an influential group in Xue Yue, they could have accomplished great things.
But those people didn't care about the eighteen cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer. What did that mean? What was their social status?
’’There is no use in giving answers to the dead.’’ Said one of those people in an indifferent tone, which made Duan Tian Lang smile. He looked at Lin Feng while seeming fearless and mockingly said: ’’Lin Feng, the other night, you had an opportunity to kill me but you didn't, I guarantee you that it was the biggest mistake you made in your entire life. You missed your chance that night and today you will die because of it.’’
’’It seems like these people are above you, you are just their lackey, a servant, a worthless dog.’’ Said Lin Feng while ignoring Duan Tian Lang. He then continued, in a low voice: ’’I had never thought that the majestic Duan Tian Lang, who has the status of a noble, would be someone else's servant... I am surprised. I had thought that, even though Duan Tian Lang was a bit weak, he was still a noble... And a noble ended up being a mere lackey, some other people's little dog.’’
Lin Feng's words astonished many members of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue. He was saying that the founder of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue was someone else's lackey!
They had never thought about that before. Duan Tian Lang was a noble and his status was majestic. How could he be someone's lackey? But in fact, Duan Tian Lang was clearly obeying these five people.
’’I don't really want to know that much, I'm just curious. If Duan Tian Lang is someone's servant, it means that those at the top must be more important than the members of the Imperial Clan. Besides, the Great Competition is approaching and the Imperial Clan would strive to keep me alive, they want me to represent them in the great competition, so what role are you guys planning?’’ Asked Lin Feng, he looked perplexed but was slightly surprised. Duan Tian Lang was a noble with the blood of the Imperial Clan, but he seemed to worship those five people. Lin Feng didn't believe that these people were from a force outside of the Imperial City. They had to have a very high social status in the Imperial City. That was the only explanation.
But the second prince Duan Wu Ya favoured Lin Feng and everybody was aware that he protected Lin Feng. Besides, after the banquet the other night, everyone was certain that he was going to be chosen for the Great Competition of Xue Yue. The Imperial Clan would benefit greatly from his participation and had no reason to want Lin Feng dead.
That was also why Lin Feng had fearlessly charged into the Imperial City with his troops, and he had guessed right, the guards let him in and no one else blocked his path.
But Lin Feng was realizing that some things were not going as he planned.
’’You don't need to understand anything;you will not be participating in the Great Competition of Xue Yue.’’ Said one of them while sounding arrogant. This sentence alone confirmed that he wasn't a member of the Imperial Clan.
’’I'm just worried about you;nobody will know that you died for such a worthless cause.’’ Said Lin Feng which astonished those five people. Die for a worthless cause? Lin Feng still thought that the ones who were going to die was still going to be them?
’’Don't you think that you are being way too confident when it comes to your cultivation? You're still so foolish and way too arrogant.’’ Said Duan Tian Lang while smiling coldly and staring at Lin Feng.
But Lin Feng shook his head and looked at those people in a mocking way as if he had been looking at utter fools.
’’I don't need to borrow anyone else's power to fight against you, Duan Tian Lang, or even to destroy the entire Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue, but since you resorted to becoming someone else's dog, I will kill them first and then I will exterminate the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue.’’ Said Lin Feng indifferently. When he finished talking, a group of people at the front of the army removed their helmets and rose into the air to swiftly join Lin Feng. When people saw their faces, they were astonished.
They were women! The group of people rising into the air was composed completely of women. There were thirty-six women that joined Lin Feng. All of them were indifferent and their Qi was peculiar.
Those women had formed a four by nine battle formation.
’’The Lovesick Forest...’’
The opponents were astonished. Those women in white clothes were from the Lovesick Forest.
’’She gave them to you...’’ Said the one who had just spoken out while staring at Lin Feng, sharp lights were twinkling in his eyes.
The women of the Lovesick Forest... Even though they weren't very strong alone, they maintained their pure hearts and concentrated fully on cultivation, they would link their powers together using witchcraft. When they fought together in formation, they were extremely powerful;nobody dared to belittle the power of those women.
’’It seems like your confidence wasn't that justified.’’ Said Lin Feng while smiling coldly which astonished those five people. These thirty-six women were a terrifying fighting force.
’’Six times four formations against those five people, the rest will stop anybody else who tries to escape!’’ Said Lin Feng indifferently. Immediately, twenty-four women immediately attacked the five people while the other twelve rose higher in the air and formed a circle formation around the fight and created a barrier using spells.
Lin Feng was a little shocked;these women were able to form a 12-person formation!
At that moment, their position was truly perfect, nobody would be able to escape from inside.
Duan Tian Lang was astonished and stared at Lin Feng. His smile had completely disappeared from his face. He just looked vigilant and he was shaking with fear. Those groups of women in a battle formation were extremely dangerous. Duan Tian Lang could only hope that the five people with him would be able to protect him.
If his five accomplices were defeated, Duan Tian Lang was doomed to die.
When Duan Tian Lang thought about that, he grew extremely nervous.
