Beastmaster of the Ages - Chapter 549
Chapter 549: 549
There was a river in the Divine Capital, with a luxurious building that was protected by a formation right beside it . It was currently lit up by lamps, and the sounds of merriment echoed out from within .
This was the only brothel still operating in the capital, Moon House .
Supposedly, Moon House’s resilience was due to being backed by a major figure in the dynasty .
Moon House’s highest floor was the most lavish area inside . Currently, tens of beautiful singers were inside dancing and entertaining two esteemed guests .
The two esteemed guests had come today to enjoy themselves; however, they had unpleasant expressions . In this scenario, the dancers all made sure not to mess up .
“Father-in-law, did His Majesty really go to the Grand-Orient Realm?” Zhao Shenhong, the Tianwu Marshall, asked .
“Yes . It’s faster for him to go alone . He’ll catch a few important figures before rushing back . Then the Fifteenth Prince, Dongyang An, will lead thirty sky saints to exterminate all the sects in the Grand-Orient Realm,” the number one marshall in the Theocracy, Huang Chonghuan, said in a low voice .
“That was quite decisive . He immediately left after suffering such a small loss,” Zhao Shenhong said .
“How could he not? He secluded himself away for so long and was just about to succeed when it was snatched away, and he even got a slap on the face in the process . There was no other option with the Theocrat’s arrogance . Li Wudi is currently standing guard at the dao palace while all of his weak points are in the Grand-Orient Realm . Once we catch a few, dealing with him will be easy . ”
“Would he be so dumb?”
“It’s not dumb, it’s valuing relationships . Those are the kind of people who tend to die an early death . He’s finished now that he infuriated His Majesty . There’ll be a good show once His Majesty returns . ”
Outside Moon House, Li Tianming was hidden in the darkness, watching them . “What good will killing these two do?”
“They’re the most adept at war amongst the Nineshades Clan, and are Dongyan Yun’s left and right hand men . Huang Chonghuan, especially, has a lot of control over the army . If they die, there’ll be serious problems directing their armies,” Li Wudi explained .
“Understood . ”
“All the Nineshades Clan members are huddled together now, but these two actually dare to come out for some fun . If we don’t kill them, who do we kill?” Li Wudi sneered .
“Godfather, leave Zhao Shenhong to me . ”
“Alright . We’ll do this fast!”
“Yes . ” Tianming thought of how he had been chased down by this Tianwu Marshall before . He hadn’t expected the chance for revenge would come so soon .
“Very good . Once they’re dead, Saint Martial Manor will no longer exist! You also killed Chong Yang and Wei Ji, making the Ancient Clans like headless chickens . The Nineshades Clan will lose their greatest supporters!”
Tianming’s eyes shone .
There was no longer any need to hide when the opponents were alone .
Li Wudi’s kunpeng entered the river, sneaking towards the building . The water was quickly dyed red as a giant wave rose up, covering the building .
Li Wudi had arrived .
“Huang Chonghuan and Zhao Shenhong, stay . The rest can leave . ”
“Ambush!” Zhao Shenhong shouted .
The girls hadn’t run yet when two figures charged at the guests .
“Want to run?” A man with hair the color of blood appeared and cut the two men off as they tried to escape . His appearance made the two go pale .
“Father-in-law, split up!” Zhao Shenhong said hurriedly, then he shot to the left . In truth, his purpose in saying that was to give himself a chance of survival . After all, with two targets, Li Wudi would surely go for Huang Chonghuan .
And things went exactly as he planned .
“Go and summon people! Find the Ninth Price!” Huang Chonghuan obviously knew what game Zhao Shenhong was playing . He could only hope he called some people over .
“What, you think you can last that long?” Li Wudi’s lip curled up .
“You think I, the great number one marshall of this Theocracy can be assassinated by you?” Huang Chonghuan glared imposingly .
However, in truth, Li Wudi was someone who could match Autarch Qian . Huang Chonghuan was already planning to run .
“Yep . That’s why I’m here!” Li Wudi grinned malevolently . Lifting up his saber, he chased him down . “Tomorrow, your head will hang from the dao palace’s gates . So I promise not to aim for the face . ”
Huang Chonghuan’s heart sank .
Zhao Shenhong gasped for breath as he fled along the river . Sounds of combat followed him .
Sorry, Father-in-law, I’m too young to die, Zhao Shenhong said inwardly . He prepared to cross the river to enter the Theocracy’s temporary camp .
Just as he crossed the water… .
The water burst out as a beastly head rushed out and dragged him into the water .
“Who!” Zhao Shenhong’s voice was filled with horror .
“Your murderer,” a cold voice rang out .
Zhao Shenhong froze, then he revealed a look of excitement . “Just you?”
“Am I not enough?”
“More than enough . What a pleasant surprise this is!” Zhao Shenhong could already see the glory he would be showered with from bringing Li Tianming’s head to Autarch Qian . His lifebound beast burst onto the scene .
It was a large golden bird with seventy-nine stars in its eyes, nearly an eighth-order empyrean beast . It was called the Eighteen-Winged Heavenly Bird, and its eighteen golden wings were like giant blades resting on its body .
As soon as it appeared, it activated an ability, the Golden World! A golden sphere immediately appeared on the battlefield, trapping Tianming and Zhao Shenhong inside .
The bird unleashed a second ability, Feather Armor, which attached itself to Zhao Shenhong and a set of golden armor appeared on him . The most eye-catching feature was wings on his back, just like his beast .
The weapon in his hand, the Dragon-Subduing Club, was mighty and imposing . It had been bestowed by Autarch Qian and wasn’t just a weapon, but a symbol of how he was the second marshall of the country .
Then, he charged toward Tianming!
He swung the Dragon-Subduing Club, the power of the seventh level of the sky saint stage gushing out .
Just as he was about to clash with Tianming, a tiny bird appeared between them . Zhao Shenhong had only just seen that it looked like a tiny phoenix when it gathered over three thousand strands of Invincible Sword Qi and stabbed them out at the club with its wing .
Zhao Shenhong was sent flying . He was stunned to find that his club, which had experienced countless fights, was knocked away by a lifebound beast .
Zhao Shenhong turned around when he heard some shrill cries . He saw a giant two-headed dragon trying to drag his bird underwater, while a black cat pulled in countless lightning bolts to strike at the giant bird .
Then, even more tragically, the little bird that had fought him joined in, spitting out a gout of fire that landed on his beast’s head .
“Li Tianming!” Zhao Shenhong roared .
Zhao Shenhong froze when he realised the voice was right next to him .
“You’re too cocky, if you think you can kill me alone!” His club smashed out again . Countless golden dragons gathered on its surface, roaring loudly .
“I’m more than enough . ”
Meeting Zhao Shenhong was Tianming’s Grand-Orient Sword!
It had over seven thousand strands of Invincible Sword Ki on it . That was combined with the Shenxiao Sword Art and the Imperealm Sword Formation!
The gap between them was a mere five levels, and counted for nothing .
Two figures collided above the river .
The club shattered and Tianming’s sword stabbed into Zhao Shenhong’s chest, killing him instantly . The fight had been even easier than that against Wei Ji, showing that none of them could handle his meteoric rise .
A head fell into Tianming’s hand .
“Saint Martial Manor no longer exists!” Tianming’s emotions didn’t fluctuate . This wouldn’t be the first, or last, enemy .
