Chapter 3047: Chen Li
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In a vast region, which was separate from grade-six mansions in the Southern Heaven Territory.
In a grand mansion in a huge city.
A young man sat in front of a table, sipping tea, in the front yard of the grand mansion. “He’s not even 100 years old, but he has comprehended two profundities from the law of earth?” After he finished speaking, the teacup in his hand shattered due to the excessive force he had exerted.
Another young man who was sitting across him looked at the broken cup in his hand and asked in confusion, “Chen Li, what happened?”
“It’s nothing… I just received a message from someone in a grade-seven sect in the Profound Nether Mansion. That person wants to employ the organization’s services to assassinate someone.” The young man who was holding the broken teacup in his hand had an extraordinary bearing. He was none other than Chen Li, the illegitimate son of one of the Vice Leaders of the Blood Skull Gang.
Chen Li was a young man with a pale face and a frail figure. He was dressed in a robe with silver trimmings. He seemed like a degenerate who spent all his time on women and wine. However, in truth, the state of his body had nothing to do with a degenerate lifestyle. It was due to malnourishment. Before he was born, his mother was on the run from the assassin sent by his father’s legal wife and almost died as a result. Due to some luck, she managed to safely give birth to him, but his body ended up very weak as a result. For this reason, his father who felt incredibly remorseful and guilty toward him was very considerate and good to him. Moreover, he had nine elder sisters and thirteen younger sisters, making him the only son in the family. His father had expended considerable effort to obtain nourishing pills for him, allowing his body to improve to that of an ordinary man. Unfortunately, after that, his body’s constitution made no further improvement. Due to this reason, his innate talent and comprehension skills were only ordinary and were the weakest among his sisters. However, due to being the only son, his father treated him far better compared to his sisters.
“Assassinate who?” the young man sitting across Chen Li asked. He looked elegant dressed in a long white robe. He looked rather scholarly as he held a folding fan in his hand. There was a perpetual faint smile on his face that made him seem rather amiable.
The two young men were like polar extremes.
“The target must be complicated for you to lose your composure…” the scholarly young man said.
“He’s not even 100 years old, but he’s a peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestial who has comprehended two profundities from the law of earth… He rose to prominence in the Southern Heaven Ancient Realm and was ranked second. As a result, he joined the Simplicity Celestial Sect. The client is also from the same sect as the target,” Chen Li said, “If my memory serves me right, the client is Zheng Hong Yi, the third direct disciple of the Sect Leader of the Simplicity Celestial Sect.”
Chen Li speculated out loud, “For him to want to assassinate a fellow sect member, it’s obvious that person has gotten in his way in the sect. He wants to employ the Blood Skull Gang so it won’t leave any clues that lead back to him.”
If Zheng Hong Yi were here, he would have been taken aback by the accuracy of Chen Li’s speculation.
Then, Chen Li muttered to himself in a low voice, “Not even 100 years old, but he’s a peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestial who has comprehended two profundities from the law of earth. Moreover, he’s a sectless cultivator. His innate talent and comprehension skill are truly high…” As he spoke, his eyes flashed fiercely with envy and jealousy. Due to his average innate talent and comprehension skills, he was the most envious and jealous of people with high innate talent and comprehension skills.
Upon hearing Chen Li’s words, a shocked expression appeared on the scholarly young man’s face. “Not even 100 years old? He’s a peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestial who has comprehended two profundities from the law of earth? Moreover, he’s a sectless cultivator? That grade-six mansion has such a talent among their folds?”
In the past 100 years, such a talent was extremely rare even among the ten major clans and five major sects in the Southern Heaven Territory.
The scholarly young man asked curiously, “So what’s your reply?”
“I agreed. I owe him a favor, after all… I’m accepting this job on behalf of the Blood Skull Gang,” Chen Li said.
The scholarly young man reminded Chen Li, “It’s best to be cautious and thoroughly investigate his background before you act. With such a high innate talent and comprehension skills, I have a feeling he’s not a sectless cultivator.” Since he was friends with Chen Li, he, naturally, did not want Chen Li to provoke somebody he could not afford to provoke. Moreover, the person who had made the request was from a grade-seven sect. There was no need to take someone from a mere grade-seven sect so seriously.
“Rest assured.” A rare smile appeared on Chen Li’s face. “Don’t you have any confidence in the Blood Skull Gang’s intelligence department? They’d be able to dig out all information regarding the target… If he truly has an extraordinary background, the Blood Skull Gang won’t make a move at all. No harm rejecting that person’s request after I confirm the target’s background if need be.”
Although Blood Skull Gang had a terrifying reputation in the Southern Heaven Territory, there were a few people they would not dare to make a movie against. For example, they would not dare to act against the people of the Southern Heaven Celestial Lord who controlled the entire Southern Heaven Territory. Apart from that, they would not act against members of the ten major clans and the five leading clans.
In the Southern Heaven Territory, above grade-six forces were fifteen grade-five forces collectively known as the Ten Major Clans and the Five Leading Sects. They were, naturally, not to be trifled with.
“That’s good.” The scholarly young man nodded after listening to Chen Li’s words. His slightly furrowed brows eased. He was aware that the intelligence department of the Blood Skull Gang was incredibly efficient and thorough even in the entire Southern Heaven Territory. In fact, even the intelligence department of the sect he belonged to was not necessarily superior to the Blood Skull Gang’s intelligence department. After all, the Blood Skull Gang was an assassin organization. It was of utmost importance that they had a superior and wide information network.
“When are you planning to return?” Chen Li asked the scholarly young man.
“I’ll leave tomorrow…. It’s been quite a while so it’s time for me to return. Come and visit me when you have the time,” the scholarly young man said with a faint smile on his face.
“I will. After all, you’re my only friend and best friend.” A smile appeared on Chen Li’s pale face, making him look rather sinister.
If there was one person with high innate talent and comprehension skills whom Chen Li was not jealous of, it would be the scholarly young man. After all, the scholarly young man was his only friend. There were only two people whom Chen Li considered important: his deceased mother and his best friend.
Upon hearing Chen Li’s words, the scholarly young man sighed inwardly. In the end, he rose to his feet and patted Chen Li’s shoulder and said with a faint smile on his face, “You’re also my best friend…”
The smile on Chen Li’s face widened when he heard those words. Alas, it made him look even more sinister. He was, in fact, genuinely moved and happy. However, due to his facial features, he looked rather sinister whenever he smiled.
In the Simplicity Celestial Sect in the Profound Nether Mansion.
Standing at the peak of a mountain that had been flattened, Duan Ling Tian looked at a tower in excitement. “This is… the library?”
There were two libraries in the Simplicity Celestial Sect. One was for those in the outer sect, and the other was for those in the inner sect. The nine-story tower was none other than the Simplicity Celestial Sect’s library in the inner sect where all kinds of cultivation methods, Celestial Methods, and Divine Abilities were kept. It also contained many books and Memory Celestial Talismans of various topics. One would have to show their identity token that proved their identities as inner sect disciples before they would be granted entry.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian only had his eyes on the ninth floor of the library. After all, the ninth floor was where the Simplicity Celestial Sect’s King Grade Celestial Methods, Divine Abilities, and Sect-Guarding Techniques were kept. Only those with a high status in the sect and true disciples were allowed to comprehend these Celestial Methods and Divine Abilities. Therefore, access to the ninth floor was only given to these people.
Duan Ling Tian was unaware that he would need to show his identity token before he would be allowed to enter the library. When he was stopped by two Taoist priests guarding the entrance, he quickly brought out his identity token.
“True disciple!” Upon seeing Duan Ling Tian’s identity token, the eyes of the two Taoist priests almost popped out of their sockets. They hastily stepped aside to let Duan Ling Tian in.
One of the Taoist priests looked at Duan Ling Tian curiously and said, “So you’re the newcomer whom the sect master has made a true disciple!”
Although the other Taoist priest did not speak, his eyes were brimming with curiosity as well when he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian only responded with a slight nod before he entered the library.
Meanwhile, a few inner disciples looked at Duan Ling Tian’s retreating back in a daze. They had no idea the person in front of them was the genius who had caused a commotion half a month ago in their sect.
“It’s said that Duan Ling Tian isn’t even 100 years old, but he’s a peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestial who has comprehended two profundities from the law of earth!”
“It’s hard to imagine there’s such a genius in the Profound Nether Mansion, let alone our Simplicity Celestial Sect!”
“What’s even more shocking is he’s a sectless cultivator!”
