Chapter 435 – I Have Never Feared Death
A golden glow that suffused the sky.
The golden glow was ten thousand times more intense than the golden glow that came from Devil Monarch Skysoul!
Luo Tian had never seen such a strong boss ever since he came to this foreign world. This made the blood inside his body boil with excitement. He was now absolutely sure that this guy was Mount Hua Immortal Sect’s strongest last boss!
Luo Tian stood there without moving because his whole body was oppressed to the point of being unable to move.
“Cultivating devil skills, death!”
“Provoking an Elder, death!”
“Killing an Elder, death!”
The voice exploded and said a series of the word – death. Luo Tian’s expression turned gloomy because he could guess what person had arrived. He then coldly scoffed: “You’re nothing good yourself, so what qualifications do you have to judge me?”
“Prime Elder, who is colluding with the devil sects!”
“It’s fortunate that all my crimes added together are still not as serious as yours. Colluding with the devil sects, using Mount Hua Immortal Sect’s immortal vein to concoct pills, and plotting against Mount Hua Immortal Sect disciples. If your crimes were publicly announced, most likely a Prime Elder like you would still be a goner.”
It was very obvious…
That the visitor was that Prime Elder who was colluding with the devil sects!
The moment Luo Tian handed the mission over at the Merit Hall, he was already prepared.
He just didn’t imagine it would be this quick.
A burst of cold crazy laughter was heard. “You really think you’re infallible? Do you think anyone would believe your words? Even if they do, what can they do to me? A mere outer sect disciple like you isn’t even qualified to become a chess piece.”
“Kid, do you think you are qualified to fight with me?”
“Status, identity, and value; you have none of those qualifications. Do you understand that in front of me, you count as nothing?”
He was treating Luo Tian as nothing.
In his eyes, he was the sky above Mount Hua Immortal Sect!
No one could touch his position. Even the current Sect Leader couldn’t so what was an outer sect disciple considered?
Luo Tian smiled and said: “Then you better kill me. If you don’t kill me, I will be the one to kill you when given the chance. Do you happen to understand that?”
Luo Tian didn’t try to hide the killing intent in his heart.
If others treated him like crap, he would return it back to them twofold.
His body was being suppressed while his sea of consciousness was being crushed. He couldn’t move a single bit which pissed him off to no end. He really hated having his mind and sea of consciousness being suppressed because the feeling was extremely uncomfortable. The most important part…
This Prime Elder was a boss, a super boss! That’s why he had to explode him; he absolutely had to explode this guy!
“Luo Tian, you are truly quite crazy.”
“A typical crazy person usually doesn’t live for long. Do you really think I don’t dare to kill you?” A cold evil voice tone sounded out.
Luo Tian replied: “The devil sect person who can refine inner cores has already left, while I’ve become the only person in Mount Hua Immortal Sect that can refine inner cores. If you wanted to kill me, you would’ve made your move a long time ago. Do you really think you would dare kill me?”
“Do you think the devil sect will continue to cooperate with you?”
“Prime Elder, you really shouldn’t be so self-centered. There are actually many matters that are not in your control.”
If the people of Mount Hua Immortal Sect knew Luo Tian was speaking to the Prime Elder in such a way, most likely they would piss their pants from fear.
The reason Luo Tian dared to return the completed mission was that he grasped the Prime Elder’s Achilles heel.
This was the Achilles heel of every immortal sect disciple.
The xuan stones that immortal sect disciples use to cultivate can no longer satisfy their requirements. For someone who wishes to make breakthroughs quickly, they require a powerful resource and inner cores perfectly fit that criterion.
Mount Hua Immortal Sect is in a state of decline. Not to mention inner cores, even exquisite grade xuan stones were at a pitiful number. The disciples were having trouble advancing their cultivation in a one year period, and it was even more so for the Elders who had already reached their peak. Only a more powerful resource was their key to breaking through.
There was a brief silence.
The black shadow took a step forward and instantly landed in front of Luo Tian.
It was an elderly person with white brows and white hair. His expression was so calm that it was like a still well. His eyes were also very calm as they looked at Luo Tian before saying: “You are very smart.”
Luo Tian smiled faintly and replied: “Thank you for your praise. I also think I’m very smart too.”
The elder narrowed his eyes, he said: “From today onwards, you need to turn over three hundred inner cores per month to me and I will guarantee your stay in Mount Hua Immortal Sect will be free of obstructions. No one will dare move against you, which also includes the current Sect Leader.”
This was a huge number!
With that amount, it can make a Profound Ancestor realm disciple break through to the Profound Venerate realm in just a year.
Luo Tian coldly sneered and said: “Do you think I’m going to agree to that?”
“You dare to not agree?”
“What do I not dare? The worst-case scenario is that I die. Most likely that devil sect person couldn’t give you three hundred inner cores, not to mention me. I can give you fifty if you want. If you don’t want it, then pretend that I never said a word.”
“You can go ahead and kill me if you don’t care for the consequences.”
“Why would that devil sect alchemist suddenly leave the Dark Abyss Cave? Why would he suddenly transfer the secret skill of refining inner cores to me? I’m sure you know what’s going on. Don’t think you’re all that just because you’re the Prime Elder of Mount Hua Immortal Sect. In my eyes, you are nothing as well.” Luo Tian said this in an overbearing manner and an expression like he didn’t care. But in reality, he was terrified inside.
He was extremely terrified.
But he had to maintain his tough stance.
When facing this Prime Elder of Mount Hua Immortal Sect, a hegemonic boss’s existence, Luo Tian had no ability to resist.
The only thing he could do right now was to delay.
He needed time to level up!
He needed a lot of time, so he could only compromise for the time being. But one needs to be reasonable when compromising. Three hundred inner cores were without a doubt an exorbitant demand. Even if he was capable of refining that many, there’s no way he would give it all to the Prime Elder.
Apart from a Prime Elder, there was still a Venerable Hun Yuan.
He wanted to borrow the strength of those two forces.
The elderly person’s gaze narrowed before he said: “Two hundred!”
Luo Tian didn’t give in and continued: “Fifty of them are my limit.”
The aura on the elderly person’s body started fluctuating and giving off a trace of cold killing intent.
The killing intent actually condensed into a huge black hand before grabbing onto Luo Tian’s throat. The elderly person lifted Luo Tian up into the air before saying coldly: “Killing you is even easier than killing an ant. There’s only one outcome for those that dare to bargain with me – death!”
Luo Tian was unable to resist. Even if he tried resisting, it would be of no use.
The elderly person’s cultivation level had already reached a realm beyond his imagination.
Even with the assistance of his system, Luo Tian could only see a long line of ????? for his health bar. There was no way to figure the number out. But if one was to give a rough estimate of this person’s cultivation level, most likely he would be at the peak of the Profound Emperor to the Profound God realm.
Hatred was surging inside Luo Tian’s heart!
The feeling of being played within the palm of someone’s hand was really not a good feeling.
When facing against this elderly person, he didn’t have an ounce of strength to resist. This kind of feeling was really infuriating to him.
Luo Tian was very clear that if this Prime Elder wanted to kill him, he would have made a move already. Luo Tian didn’t budge at all and struggled to say: “The limit of my ability is fifty of them. Even if you kill me, the amount will remain the same. I’ve already said before that I have never feared death.”
His body was dangling in the air.
His face was turning purple.
This was the thin line between life and death…
