C18 He Had a Plan in Mind
chapter 18. A plan came up in his mind.
This battle had humiliated Soong Yuyan severely, and it had also helped Qin Xiao vent his anger.
"This time, I am only looking for some interest. It is impossible to let this matter go just like that. I must kill Soong Xiongyan and his daughter." Qin Xiao returned home and said while drinking wine.
It was a pity that he couldn't kill Soong Yuyan today.
Qin Dingtian nodded and said, "Xiao Er, you have always been very composed. I am very relieved that you did not act impulsively. I'm afraid that even if we combine our strengths, we still won't be able to defeat Soong Xiongyan. Besides, after all, Soong Xiongyan was the city lord, and he was an official appointed by the imperial court under the protection of Damo Kingdom. This grudge... We can only hold it in for now. "
"I know, father. I won't act recklessly." Qin Xiao nodded and said.
He naturally knew about this situation. The City Lord was sitting on one side. He was in charge of one side of the Damo Kingdom, so naturally, he would be under the protection of the Damo Kingdom. If anyone dared to kill the City Lord... That would definitely infuriate the Sovereign aura of the Damo Kingdom, and they would surely send out their Guard of Damo to kill him. Unless it was someone who didn't even want his life. Otherwise, even if he had the strength, he wouldn't dare to kill a City Lord.
Of course, it didn't mean that there was no way to kill a City Lord. For example, becoming a Guard of Damo. For example, one's contribution to the Great Desert Country could be rewarded by Desert Emperor. For example, there would be a major power that would stand up for you. There were still many ways to do so. However, they were all rather difficult to achieve.
In a world where martial arts were respected, strength was still the most important.
If you were a Peak of the Bone Exchange Stage warrior, or even a Bone Exchange Stage warrior, then you could become a Guard of Damo at any time. Then, killing a small city lord would be a piece of cake.
There was not a single Bone Exchange Stage warrior in the entire Nanyang City.
Qin Xiao breaking through to the Rebirth Stage was something worth celebrating. Qin Dingtian was in a good mood, and he was very drunk.
"Xiao Er, why don't you continue your cultivation? I'm afraid that it will be very difficult for you to take another step forward. Our Qin Family lacks resources and low grade martial skills. That's all. If you don't have any martial skills or good cultivation resources... If you want to improve, then you'll need to go outside and train. It's just..."
Qin Xiao naturally knew about Qin Dingtian 's worries. "Father... I have thought about this long ago and wanted to discuss it with you. I will stabilize my realm a little more. Then, I will head to the Great Wilderness to gain some experience. Wealth comes from danger. If I don't go through some dangerous training... Then it will be very difficult for me to improve my strength. As for City Lord Song's side, I know that he will definitely think of ways to get rid of me. But with you watching him, he won't dare to act rashly."
"Although the City Lord Association has a few Rebirth Stage warriors, What's there to be afraid of? If I can't defeat them, I can at least run away, right? Besides, the Great Wilderness was so big. Once I enter the Great Wilderness, it won't be easy for them to find me, so you don't have to worry about that. Soong Xiongyan wouldn't dare to kill me openly."
Qin Dingtian was silent for a while before he nodded his head. "Xiao Er, you are right. I am not worried anymore."
"Yes, father. I plan to leave for Great Wilderness in three days." Qin Xiao said.
Qin Dingtian nodded heavily. "Alright, I hope that place will be your destination."
Nanyang City was located in the center of Land of Nanyang. It was surrounded by mountains, and the terrain was quite dangerous.
There were sixteen towns in the Nanyang City, and they didn't have a huge area. It was only a hundred miles in radius. Therefore, the Nanyang City wasn't big enough. The population of the people living in the Nanyang City was only about a hundred thousand.
In the study room of the majestic City Lord's Mansion, Soong Xiongyan had smashed countless things into pieces when he returned. It had turned his study into a mess. After digesting an Essence Protecting Pill, Soong Yuyan's injuries were no longer serious. However, her expression was still very ugly.
"Qin Xiao, if I had known this would happen, I would have killed you the last time. After killing Qin Dingtian , everything would be settled. I never thought that after crippling you, you would still be able to awaken the Talented divine Ability and recover. " Soong Xiongyan was very vexed in his heart.
He had always wanted to suppress the Qin Family so that he could consolidate his power. He couldn't let the Qin Family's momentum rise any further. He had been planning this for a long time, and it wasn't easy for him to succeed. But now, such a variable had appeared again, and it really pissed him off.
Furthermore, judging from the talent that Qin Xiao had displayed so far, it made him feel even more afraid. If he allowed Qin Xiao to continue developing, he would definitely be more terrifying than Qin Dingtian in the future. Once he reached that stage... He was afraid that the Qin Family's power would be enough to overshadow the City Lord's Mansion. As the manager of a region, if he was overshadowed by other powers... Wouldn't that be a great humiliation?
Soong Xiongyan would never allow such a thing to happen.
"Qin Family will always be a scourge. We must find a way to get rid of them as soon as possible. There were three young geniuses who had awakened to the Thaumaturgy level 2 among them. In the history of the Nanyang City, nothing like that ever happened. If all three of them had grown up, how could I still suppress the Qin Family? Although Qin Dingtian had been removed from the position of patriarch, after all, he was still a member of the Qin Family. If the Qin Family was in trouble, he wouldn't just stand idly by. " Soong Xiongyan's eyes became colder and colder. It was terrifying.
The thick killing intent made him look extremely ferocious.
If he didn't have an iron-blooded wrist, how could he manage the Nanyang City for twenty years?
"Father, I think this matter is a little strange." Soong Yuyan suddenly said.
Soong Xiongyan frowned and looked over.
Soong Yuyan continued, "Father, Qin Xiao only awakened the Talented divine Ability a month ago. Even if he had the level 2 Talented divine Ability, even if he was a genius... In just a month's time, how could he possibly break through to the Rebirth Stage from the Spiritual Strength Stage early stage? In just a month's time, even those peerless geniuses who had awakened level 3 or even level 4 Talented divine Ability... It was impossible for them to have such monstrous cultivation speed. Even if he uses the Origin Stone to cultivate for a month, it's still impossible."
" Besides, the Qin Family would never give Qin Xiao any cultivation resources. What cultivation resources could Qin Dingtian have? Even if he has a few low grade Origin Stone, it is still far from enough to support Qin Xiao's breakthrough to the Rebirth Stage. "
" His speed of improvement is too unbelievable. There's something strange about this. "
Soong Xiongyan was silent for a while before he said, "Yuyan, What do you think is going on? Logically speaking, Qin Dingtian indeed did not have such capability. Even if he awakened the level 2 Talented divine Ability, it was impossible for him to have such monstrous cultivation speed. This is indeed very strange."
"Father, didn't a distinguished guest come to our home?" Soong Yuyan said.
