Beastmaster of the Ages - Chapter 550
Chapter 550: – My Name is Jun Niancang “Godfather!” Li Tianming joined up with Li Wudi after dealing with Zhao Shenhong . Li Wudi had been even faster than him, and brought over Huang Chonghuan’s head .
The two exchanged a smile .
“A gift . ” Tianming tossed over his trophy .
“Get lost . It’s time to go,” Li Wudi said .
“Shouldn’t we continue? The night is still young,” Tianming said .
“No . Let’s see how they respond first . My ability to track the autarch beast is a huge advantage . If we abuse it too much, they’ll get suspicious . We should only hunt major figures, but they’re all holed up at their camp . “
“Who would you consider a major figure?”
“Dongyang Ling and Dongyang Yun, as well as Jiang An, an eighth-level sky saint . “
“They won’t live for long,” Tianming said .
“Yes, let’s go back!”
“No activity?” Autarch Qian said dubiously . He was within the Bloodbane Formation . The blood qi seething within could corrode flesh, and was rather similar to the Evil Suppression Formation . He was rushing through it as fast as he could, as the blood mist kept assaulting him .
Autarch Qian frowned . “Why is a five-star formation so troublesome?”
“If I’d known the Li Saint Clan would produce Li Wudi, I would have exterminated them long ago!” In truth, Autarch Qian currently cut a sorry figure due to the formation .
It took quite a bit of effort for him to cross it and reach the mountains within .
Autarch Qian swept his gaze across the area, and his expression turned ugly . “There’s no one here!”
He landed in the Kunpeng Sacred Hall and saw a pillar with some words carved on it .
“What’cha looking at? I’m busy with your mom right now! Shoo!”
Autarch Qian froze . Moments later, he couldn’t stop himself from coughing out blood . “An enraged roar burst out, “Li Wudi!”
Two fresh heads had been added to the dao palace’s gates, gaping in the direction of the Nineshades Clan’s camp .
“The Shenwu and Tianwu Marshalls! Quick, let His Majesty know!”
“Heavens! The number of experts we’ve lost really is way too many . ”
“How did they just die like that without His Majesty knowing?”
“I feel we’re screwed . ”
Gloom filled the camp . It was especially true for the Martial Saint Manor . They had always blindly followed Huang Chonghuan . Now, they were in a mess .
News of the two marshall’s deaths quickly spread through the whole capital, giving many people food for thought .
“Now that Li Wudi has joined the dao palace, they’ve become much more vicious . ”
“They’re even using the Evil Suppression Formation now . Can we still handle them?”
Not everyone in the army was a core member of the Theocracy . Many were just hangers-on .
“Get lost!” Dongyang Yun hurried over . When he saw the heads, his eyes went red and he clenched his fists .
These two had gone to battle with him for many years . Huang Chonghuan, especially, had walked with him on the edge of life and death many a time . And yet, now… .
“Why do I feel like we’re a joke? We haven’t accomplished much, it seems, other than hurting the dao palace’s palace lord…” someone said in a daze .
“Who said that!” Dongyang Yun’s head snapped to the side .
Everyone hurried away .
Dongyang Yun’s eyes widened when he realized it was his son . Dongyang Yun vaguely remembered he was the twenty-seventh or so, though he didn’t remember the name .
Furious, he directly stepped over, and used his palm to destroy his head, killing him .
“Kill anyone who gossips like this! We Theocrats don’t have such cowards!”
“Yes!” the troops shouted, but their voices were slightly off .
Dongyang Yun could hear it . He knew it was from killing his own son . Still, when he couldn’t even remember the brat’s name, there was no need to think about it too much .
“Thirteenth Prince, His Majesty has returned and is calling you over,” a subordinate reported .
Dongyang Yun’s eyes brightened . “That was fast!”
Dongyang Yun hurried over . He found Autarch Qian standing there . No one else was around except for Dongyang Ling, who was standing respectfully next to him .
“Father, has the time come to exterminate the dao palace?” Dongyang Yun asked .
Autarch Qian gave him a cold look .
Dongyang Yun realised Dongyang Ling was just quietly standing there with his head lowered . He hurriedly followed suit .
“Huang Chonghuan and Zhao Shenhong are dead?” Autarch Qian’s tone was frosty .
“Yes!” Dongyang Yun nodded .
“You actually let them go out alone at a time like this?” Autarch Qian’s voice became more severe .
“They didn’t report it to me! I didn’t know!” Dongyang Yun said defensively . Honestly, he actually did know, but he was obviously not going to admit it .
Autarch Qian laughed . “I faked my death to exterminate the dao palace . In the process, I lost a lot of grandkids, my Ancient Clans and Martial Saint Manor are finished, and most of my sons are dead, too . I just have you two and Fifteenth left . “
Fifteenth referred Dongyang An . However, Tianming was used to calling him Jiang An .
“Father, all the slyness in the world won’t save them from you,” Dongyang Yun said .
“Meh . I may be old, but I know who won and who lost . I lost in everything except getting Weisheng Yunxi,” Autarch Qian sighed, looking depressed
Dongyang Yun and Dongyang Ling exchanged a confused look . They weren’t used to seeing their father this way .
“Don’t say that . You did have success . The Evil Suppression Formation is unstable and could collapse any moment . You’ll be able to single-handedly crush them all after that,” Dongyang Ling said .
Autarch Qian fell into deep thought .
“Father, you need to calm down and let go of all the anger from being challenged . Look at it rationally,” Dongyang Yun said .
“Yes, I should . I’ll play a little with these fish . I looked down on them before—if I’m not careful, I may very well be dragged down into the water . ” Autarch Qian finally smiled .
“That’s right . However, fish are still fish in the end . No matter how clever they are, they can’t match up to us humans,” Dongyang Ling said .
“Now, the tricky part is how to end the dao palace in this scenario,” Dongyang Yun mused .
“I’ve got it!” Autarch Qian smiled . “We have a million people . If three can’t think of it, let a million think . Pass down the word: anyone who thinks of a solution will be heavily rewarded . “
“Are you sure, Father?” Dongyang Yun was slightly doubtful . Making the whole army think seemed ridiculous .
“Thirteenth, don’t look down on an ordinary person’s intelligence . We’re too involved, so we may miss the obvious . ” Autarch Qian said sincerely .
“I’ll pass down the order now!” Dongyang Yun eagerly left .
It didn’t take long before even the dao palace had heard the news .
Two hours later .
“Father, someone said he came up with a plan . I think it’s not bad, so I brought him over,” Dongyang Yun said excitedly .
“Bring him in . “
Not long after, Dongfang Yun brought in a white clothed man .
The man knelt down, his body shaking . It wasn’t clear whether it was from respect, emotion, or something else .
“Who are you, and where are you from?” Autarch Qian casually ate some snacks and drank some wine .
“My name is Jun Niancang . I hail from the Grand-Orient Realm,” the white clothed man said .
“Why would someone from there be here in the Divine Capital? Did you use to be from the dao palace?” Autarch Qian asked .
“Yes . I used to be from the North Hall . After Hall King Zhao left, I decided to join up when the Martial Saint Manor expanded its armies . ”
“A wise decision . ” Autarch Qian smiled . “Jun Niancang is a good name . Who gave it to you?”
“My father . He used to be the ruler of Grand-Orient Realm . A year ago, he was killed by Li Wudi . ” As Jun Niancang spoke, he began tearing up .
“Oh… . ” Autarch Qian nodded . “Rise, child . “
“Thank you, Your Majesty!”
Jun Niancang struggled to his feet .
“Tell me your scheme . “
“It’s not a scheme . I just want to share my father’s experience of fighting with Li Wudi . Hopefully, it’ll give Your Majesty some insights . “
“Speak . “
