2617 Make A DealHigh in the sky, thousands of miles away from the Black Dragon Army’s camp, Duan Ling Tian and Liu Feng Gu, the City Governor of b.l.o.o.d.y Specter City, stood facing each other.
Duan Ling Tian looked at Liu Feng Gu calmly, waiting for Liu Feng Gu to speak.
On the other hand, Liu Feng Gu studied the purple-clad young man before him. He recalled the shock he felt when the newcomers in Silverwyrm Army confirmed that the purple-clad young man who was the Captain of the Black Dragon Army had just ascended to the Spirit Overarching Heaven one and a half months ago. Moreover, the purple-clad young man had ascended to a Heavenly Celestials’ Celestial Ascension Pool! As its name suggested, the Heavenly Celestial’s Celestial Ascension Pools were only for Eminent Celestials who ascended from the mundane realms. They would become Crimson Moon Heavenly Celestials once they ascended.
b.l.o.o.d.y Specter City had quite a number of Heavenly Celestials’ Celestial Ascension Pools, and they were managed by the Black Dragon Army and the Silverwyrm Army. The newcomers would usually be sent to Celestial Stones mining sites to mine for stones. There were rarely newcomers who were given an exception. Liu Feng Gu did not expect a genius cultivator would appear among the newcomers in one of the Heavenly Celestials’ Celestial Ascension Pools during his time as City Governor. This genius killed a Centurion of the Silverwyrm Army almost as soon as he had ascended before he left. Not long after, he even joined the Black Dragon Army to become a captain. The strength he displayed was stronger than all the captains in both armies. In fact, he might not be any weaker than his two commanders. This was truly unprecedented.
Liu Feng Gu continued staring at Duan Ling Tian for a moment before he finally said, “Captain Duan, if I’m not mistaken, you must have already defeated my subordinate, Miao Lai Long, the Commander of the Silverwyrm Army, right?”
“He told you about it?” Duan Ling Tian c.o.c.ked an eyebrow in slight surprise.
“No, I guessed it.” Liu Feng Gu shook his head.
As expected. Duan Ling Tian was quite certain Miao Lai Long definitely would not tell Liu Feng Gu about what transpired between them. After all, he had something to threaten Miao Lai Long with after Miao Lai Long taught him the yellow-grade cultivation method. If it was made known that Miao Lai Long had taught him that cultivation method, Miao Lai Long would definitely lose his life. Therefore, unless Miao Lai Long had gone crazy, there was no way he would reveal what had happened.
“Miao Lai Long has been my subordinate for many years, and I know his temperament and character well. If he wasn’t defeated, he would not have let what happened a month ago go. However, I’m quite curious. Even if he was defeated, he could’ve come to me for help. Even if I’m no match for you, I still have the County Governor of Nine Specters County as my support. However, not only did Miao Lai Long not come to me for help, but he even told me he doesn’t plan on pursuing the matter,” Liu Feng Gu added. He looked at Duan Ling Tian meaningfully before he continued to say, “If I’m not mistaken, you’re holding something over him, am I right?”
Duan Ling Tian was taken aback by Liu Feng Gu’s accurate speculations.
“A while ago, Commander Chen came to me and said you wanted to cultivate the cultivation method I had imparted to him. If I’m not mistaken, you must have threatened Miao Lai Long into teaching you the cultivation method, right?” Liu Feng Gua said as he looked at Duan Ling Tian knowingly.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression changed imperceptibly, but Liu Feng Gu seemed to have noticed it as he said, “Seems like I’m right.”
When Liu Feng Gu saw the frown on Duan Ling Tian’s face and how guarded he became, he said, “Don’t worry, I don’t intend on pursuing this matter.”
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian was even more taken aback when he heard this. He expected Liu Feng Gu to punish Miao Lai Long and him once Liu Feng Gu discovered the truth.
Liu Feng Gu smiled as he said, “Since Miao Lai Long taught you the cultivation method, how would he dare to look for me to look for trouble with you? After all, he knew very well he had committed a capital crime.”
Duan Ling Tian felt naked, it was as though Liu Feng Gu could see through his thoughts. He sighed before he said bluntly, “It’s as though you were there to witness it for yourself. Since you don’t intend to pursue the matter, why did you come to look for me?”
Upon seeing how direct Duan Ling Tian was, Liu Feng Gu also did not beat around the bush as he replied, “I want to make a deal with you, Captain Duan.”
“A deal? What deal?” Duan Ling Tian frowned.
“I wish to kill someone, but I don’t have the ability to kill him. Therefore, I hope you can capture him and bring him to me so I can personally kill him once you’ve gotten strong enough!” Liu Feng Gu said as his eyes flashed coldly. He looked like a venomous snake, waiting to strike at its prey at this moment. The hatred he held for this person was intense, it was as though that person had murdered his father or taken his wife away.
“City Governor, you think too highly of me! What makes you think I’ll be capable of capturing someone whom you aren’t able to kill?” Duan Ling Tian said indifferently.
“Well, you’ve just ascended to the Spirit Overarching Heaven, and you’re still Heavenly Celestial. However, look at your strength…” Liu Feng Gu replied with a burning gaze.
“No one believes the Silverwyrm Army’s words, don’t tell me you believe them?” Duan Ling Tian smiled. He knew no one believed the Silverwyrm Army when they said he had just ascended one and a half months ago. After all, how could someone who had just ascended become a Captain of the Black Dragon Army? Moreover, he was even able to easily cripply a Captain of the Silverwyrm Army!
“Initially, I, naturally, didn’t believe it. However, as Miao Lai Long suggested, I spoke to the newcomers who ascended at the same time as you to verify the matter. How could I not believe it after listening to them?” Liu Feng Gu said.
“Miao Lai Long?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes glinted coldly. He did not expect Miao Lai Long still dared to cause trouble behind his back. He knew very well that Miao Lai Long had done all this just to make Liu Feng Gu aware of his extraordinary Celestial Methods and Divine Abilities. If Liu Feng Gu was greedy, he would have attacked him. Miao Lai Long probably thought he was slightly weaker compared to the City Governor and planned to use the City Governor to deal with him.
Liu Feng Gu said, “Naturally, I’m aware of Miao Lai Long’s intention. He deliberately revealed your strength that’s granted by your extraordinary Celestial Methods and Divine Abilities. He thinks I’ll covet them and wants to use my hands to kill you. He also told me how you might possess a soul defense Celestial Weapon that’s at the mediocre-level at the very least. He said he tried to probe you with his Divine Consciousness, but his Divine Consciousness was devoured by something instead. This is definitely not a method of concealing one’s cultivation base.”
‘So this is why Miao Lai Long didn’t bother using soul attacks on me. He thought I possessed a soul defense Celestial Weapon that would repel the attacks,” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself. Naturally, Miao Lai Long had mistaken his defective metal piece as a Celestial Weapon. Then, he looked at Liu Feng Gu calmly and said bluntly, “Since you’re aware of all this, don’t you covet my Celestial Methods, Divine Abilities, and my soul defense Celestial Weapon?”
“Indeed. The thought did cross my mind, but I quickly dismissed it,” Liu Feng Gu replied honestly.
“Why?” Duan Ling Tian was rather curious. How did Liu Feng Gu suppress his greed?
Similar to earlier, Liu Feng Gu answered frankly, “First of all, I’m not sure if I’m a match for you. Second, even if I am, it’ll still be difficult for me to force you to teach me those things if you’re unwilling. Although this is my first time meeting you, Chen Xuan Ba had reported to me the incident where you killed Jian Qiu Ping. After that, I had ordered my Golden Serpent Guards to do a background check on you. You hardly make appearances once you become a Captain of the Black Dragon Army. However, based on your words and the way you carry yourself, it’s clear you’re not an ordinary person. There’s no point in forcing you to teach me the Celestial Methods and Divine Abilities if you’re unwilling.”
