Chapter 834 – Super Boss!
She wasn’t her biological daughter?
Some random picked up child?!
Luo Tian’s anger immediately surged into the sky the moment Zi Loulan said such words.
He glanced at the dull and lifeless Li Xue’er before his figure disappeared and appeared in front of Zi Loulan. His hand was clutching onto Zi Loulan’s throat as he said with killing intent: “You can go to hell then!”
Zi Loulan showed now fear.
She had a cold sneer as she stared at Luo Tian, “Go ahead and kill me. If you kill me, Xue’er will blame you for the rest of your life. She cannot hear the words I’ve just spoken with the soul poison inside her. Go ahead and kill me and have her hate you for the rest of your life, hahaha…”
“Go ahead and kill!”
“Kill me! Hahaha…”
Zi Loulan had calculated everything or else she wouldn’t have dared to say those words.
She had picked up Li Xue’er purely by chance. Her daughter and she had been running for their lives and her daughter ended up dying due to the harsh conditions. She was devastated at that time. When she entered the Ghostly Mountain Range, she just happened to encounter a holy and pure-looking little girl by herself.
The girl was sleeping at that time but when Zi Loulan picked her up, she suddenly opened her eyes.
It was at this time that an image of a phoenix flew out of her body and into the sky with a loud screech.
This was the moment the phoenix bloodline was born.
Zi Loulan was covered in injuries yet she was feeling excited. This little girl will definitely become an extraordinary figure in the future and her cultivation will reach a terrifying realm. But for now, she couldn’t bring along the little girl with her in escaping.
Coincidentally, she encountered Luo Haoran who was looking for herbs in the mountain.
This was actually Luo Tian’s father.
She handed the little girl to him and quickly left the area.
Later on, Zi Loulan returned to Jade Mountain City to take Li Xue’er away and bring her back to the Soul Hall.
Because of Li Xue’er’s existence, Zi Loulan went from a little outer sect elder to a Deputy Hall Master of the Soul Hall. She was greatly satisfied upon reaching the sky in a single bound and understood everything was related to Li Xue’er.
Later on, she desired more power. When Cang Tianlong from the Imperial God Immortal Sect came for a marriage proposal, she instantly agreed without even thinking about it. All she was thinking was that a true dragon was her son-in-law and her daughter was a young phoenix, so who in this world can ever shake her position?
She had been looking forward to the marriage between Li Xue’er and Murong Wanjian for a very long time. Once they get married, her status will be practically elevated to a level that is similar to an Empress Dowager of the Tianxuan Continent! She will become one of the most powerful people in the world!
But Luo Tian’s appearance had ruined everything she was dreaming of!
She hated him to the point of shaking uncontrollably!
Now that things turned out like this, she hated Luo Tian even more! It was Luo Tian who had taken everything that originally belonged to her. It was Luo Tian who made her turn into a villainous shrew!
Since she cannot get what she wants, then others can forget about getting what they want!
Upon seeing the trace of hesitation in Luo Tian’s eyes, she started laughing in smugness. “Hahaha… Luo Tian, you don’t dare, right? If you kill me, there will always be a knot inside Xue’er’s heart. There will always be an inexplicable barrier between you and her! Hahaha…”
Laughter filled with triumph!
The faces of Luo Tian’s people became unsightly to the extreme but no one spoke up.
Leng Hanshuang, Qin Yue’er, and even the usually happy-go-lucky An Chunchun remained silent.
Just like Zi Loulan said, there would be a knot inside Li Xue’er’s heart if Luo Tian killed her. This knot could be something that can never be untied. Even if everyone present says that Zi Loulan isn’t her real mother, would she believe those words when she grew up only knowing her as her mother?
Sometimes the more you speak, the more counterproductive it becomes.
Many people understood this.
For the very first time, the Soul King looked at Zi Loulan and felt that she was quite extraordinary. He unconsciously revealed a smug grin, “Luo Tian, you should know what to do for Li Xue’er’s benefit. Otherwise, you might end up not getting her heart or her body.”
“How about we do an exchange?”
“I will detoxify the soul poison for you but you will have to listen to me from here on out. We will join hands to rule the Tianxuan Continent. I know you don’t care about stuff like that. As long as you help me rule this continent, I will let Li Xue’er go and let you two head to a higher realm.”
“What do you think?”
The Soul King started feeling excited since he grasped Luo Tian’s weakness.
The biggest weakness he had was Li Xue’er. As long as he controls Li Xue’er, he will be able to control Luo Tian as well!
Things are working out great now!
The Soul King couldn’t hold back his happiness. As long as Luo Tian was under his command, ruling the entire continent was a matter of time. He will eventually become the overlord of the Tianxuan Continent! At that time… A surge of excitement rose up from deep inside him!
Unfortunately, Luo Tian still had an icy cold expression on his face. His mouth curved to his signature grim reaper smile as he looked at Zi Loulan. “You think that I don’t dare to kill you? You think that I would care about the knot in Xue’er’s heart?”
“You’ve made a huge mistake!”
“Moreover, I believe that time will prove everything. I also believe that Xue’er’s biological mother is definitely somewhere in this world. As long as I can find her real mother, I can prove to her my words are true.”
“Zi Loulan, what you should have never ever mentioned was that Xue’er isn’t your biological daughter. If you never said such a thing, I will never dare to move against you. Since you aren’t Xue’er’s real mother, you can go to hell for me.”
After saying that, he didn’t give Zi Loulan any chance to speak.
He poured strength into his fingers and snapped Zi Loulan’s neck.
Her body swayed around while her head was lopsided. Her eyes were very large as she continued staring at Luo Tian with fear.
She thought she had calculated everything except for the part where Luo Tian was a lunatic. He didn’t care and just killed her.
Before Zi Loulan’s body could fall down, Luo Tian released two energy pillars worth of power and shattered her body into powder. A gentle wind blew the powder into the surrounding area while Luo Tian coldly exclaimed: “This daddy has been tolerating you for a long time already. Now that even your soul is gone, you can forget about becoming a ghost!”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for killing Zi Loulan. You have gained 1 experience point, 1 profound energy…”
“Undefeated point +1.”
Luo Tian spat a glob of phlegm at her dissipating body, “What the f*ck?! One experience point?!”
Just when Luo Tian glanced over at the Soul King, the system gave him an alert tone.
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for triggering a new quest – Find Li Xue’er’s mother.”
“Quest rank: ? ? ?”
“Quest reward: ? ? ?”
There was only a long line of question marks.
“Quest description: Enter the Ancient World and find the Ancient King to get more information.”
“What the hell?!”
“Ancient King? Isn’t that my master?” Luo Tian made a thought and accepted it. Even if there wasn’t a quest, he would still help Li Xue’er look for her real mother to prove himself.
Right after Luo Tian killed Zi Loulan, a huge true dragon glowing with the colors of a rainbow released its berserk powers. “Luo Tian, the time of your death has arrived! Hahaha…”
Son of a true dragon, Murong Wanjian.
He had absorbed seven energy pillars so he now had a total of nine of them!
