Chapter 709 – Man proposes, but God disposes
Man proposes, but God disposes
Lion King Valley.
The Wild Bull Thief Guild was on their way here.
In the Emerald Territory, the Wild Bull Thief Guild was a notorious bandit group. Their leader’s original name was already unknown, and everyone called him by his nickname, ‘Wild Bull’.
The name of the bandit group was also named because of him. Originally, they had registered their real name in the Mercenary Guild as the Gold Digger, but because they had committed too many crimes, the mercenary group had been reclassified as the bandit group renamed Wild Bull Thief Guild.
Captain Wild Bull, who was at the peak of the second level of the Heaven Stage, was one of the secret weapons of the Emerald Lord that could neutralize the city lords. Because of the support from the people behind him, the Captain Wild Bull was not afraid of wanted posters at all. He led a group of vile and crazed men, brazenly dominating the Emerald Territory and slaughtering and robbing everywhere. City Lords, if they do not submit to the Emerald Lord, the territory they rule will be attacked and trampled upon by the Wild Bull Thief Guild.
The Emerald Lord had successfully rebelled, with over a hundred city lords supporting him loyally, while only ten of them were loyal.
The thirty city lords merely supported him on the surface.
If these 30 city lords were considered to show due respect for Emerald Lord’s feeling, admitting his rule, then the other 50 city lords were his sore point.
The lords had been neutral, neither supportive nor opposed.
In addition to paying a small amount of tax each year, they also secretly resisted the authority of the Emerald Lord. They refused the officials sent by the Emerald Lord, and some even secretly supported the rebel lords in the remote and dangerous areas, continuing to challenge the Emerald Lord.
The Wild Bull Thief Guild was formed from these 50 neutral city lords.
After decades of killing and looting, some progress has finally been made.
There were more than ten city lords who were unable to bear this sort of harassment, and they officially submitted to the Emerald Lord, recognizing him as a lord with a legal status.
Right now, as the most loyal ally of the Emerald Lord, the Master of Black Wind City suddenly had a fire in his backyard. He accidentally clashed with the three great sects of Western Realm and a cross-border war broke out. To ensure that the common good would not suffer any losses, this vicious Wild Bull Thief Guild immediately had been gathered back from afar by the Emerald Lord, preparing to attack the third private army and start a war with the experts of Western Realm …
“Guild Leader, why do we need to detour around the Lion King Valley?” As an assistant of the Wild Bull for many years, Niu Gen only possessed the strength of Earth Stage Level 5. He had always maintained his habit of asking when he didn’t know what was going on, always using his own stupidity to show off his Guild Leader’s intelligence.
“You really are a fool. Captain has his own plans. Why are you asking? Is this also something that a mere Team Leader like you can be concerned about?” The Heaven Stage expert who had just been promoted to the vice leader position, Fei Huang, used the prestige of a high-level member to scold the old man, Niu Gen. In the eyes of the locust, Niu Gen who was Earth Stage Level 5 was nothing more than a flatterer with a scum strength. He relied on the Captain Wild Bull’s hometown identity, as well as his old official qualification and flattery when he was creating a group. If it were another bandit group, a villain like Niu Gen would have been eliminated long ago, how could he still be a division leader?
“I dare not. Vice-Captain, please calm your anger.” Niu Gen quickly apologized in a very sincere manner.
“Forget it, time is tight anyway. Wandering around the Lion King Valley does indeed confuse the brothers. It makes sense for Niu Gen to ask about it.” Hua Ban who joined the group with the Fei Huang felt that it was not proper to offend their old official. Although they did not have the strength, they were still old and were fellow townsmen of Captain Wild Bull.
“Brothers, don’t worry.” The Captain Wild Bull, who was on a Golden Chariot pulled by two golden bull kings of quasi-Heaven Stage, displayed the dignity of a superior person with every move he made. At the same time, he displayed his tolerance towards brothers. If there was someone who didn’t know him, they would have thought that this middle-aged man with an extraordinary and gentle temperament was a city lord, or perhaps even a renowned person of the region. Who would know that he was an extremely vicious demon that would cause others to talk about him viciously? Only those who knew the secret would know that he was the one who captured and sold one-tenth of the slaves in the Emerald Territory. The number of slaves was no less than a million.
Even if the Wild Bull who had killed at least ten million people, was only at the peak of the second level of Heaven Stage.
However, his bounty was even higher than the Master of Black Wind City’s bounty of 220 million with strength of Heaven Stage level 3.
In the Emerald Territory, for the Mercenary Guild of each city, Wild Bull was ranked fourth among the ten wanted criminals. His bounty was 318 million, which meant that he was the strongest criminal at the same level.
On the surface, he was a man of honor, with a magnetic voice, a graceful manner, and a mature disposition that could move some women who did not know the truth. Of course, the vast majorities of women who were attracted to him, instead of becoming his slave, became the delicacies on his dining table. In the eyes of Captain Wild Bull, pure virgin blood and secret women’s buttocks and breasts were unparalleled delicacies in the world.
Of course, very few people knew about this hobby, including Fei Huang and Hua Ban, who were in the important position after just joining the Wild Bull Thief Guild.
Captain Wild Bull liked to pause when he spoke. First, he wanted everyone to focus more, and second, he wanted everyone to clap in time.
He handled affairs with great leadership and art.
“Why did we detour to this Lion King Valley? There are three reasons.” Wild Bull paused slightly. All people were attracted by his words, and a look of attentive listening appeared on their faces. He nodded in satisfaction, and then explained at a moderate pace, “First, Lion King Valley is located not too far away from Black Wind City. It is very likely that it is the temporary residence of a powerhouse from the Western Realm. If we come here, we have the intention of exploring their true location. If not, then we can narrow down the search once more, cutting out this important base.”
“So that’s how it is…” The old official, Niu Gen, showed an expression of enlightenment.
“Second, if the enemy is not here, we can secretly occupy the Lion King Valley as a temporary base.” Captain Wild Bull explained the second reason. As a bandit group, even if they secretly joined the battle and the other city lords knew about it, they wouldn’t be welcomed. As a notorious Wild Bull Thief Guild, it was impossible for them to live in Black Wind City no matter what. Thus, the Lion King Valley as a stronghold was a good place to stay.
“Good, it’s definitely good!” Niu Gen excitedly extended his thumb.
“The Lion King Valley is a good place. This place is indeed safe, and it’s secretive enough.” More than a dozen of the squad leaders were whispering to each other, praising the Guild Leader for his shrewdness.
“However, the Lion King Valley is ruled by a group of fire lions. Although all the lionesses are under the Quasi-Heaven Stage, the Lion King is a Heaven Stage. If we want to forcibly occupy this place, it will be very difficult for us to cause any trouble.” The vice regiment commander Fei Huang didn’t mean that he was afraid of the Heaven stage Old Lion, but that there might be an accident.
If the Lion King Valley allowed the powerhouses of the Western Heaven Realm to take over the stronghold, then the Wild Bull Thief Guild would arrive in a grandiose manner. That would be the same as sending themselves to their deaths!
Other than the Guild Leader and the two Deputy Team Leaders, the rest of the members, such as Niu Gen, would definitely die without a single one remaining.
It didn’t matter if the essence of Niu Gen died, but if the Wild Bull Thief Guild were wiped out, that would be a heavy loss. Without soldiers and generals under his command, how could he fight against the experts of the Western Heaven realm? Even if they won, no one would carry their spoils of war! For Fei Huang, who had just joined the regiment and was promoted to vice leader, he did not wish to see the entire regiment wiped out.
The reason why he joined the Wild Bull Thief Guild was not because of the bad reputation of the Wild Bull Thief Guild.
It was the Wild Bull Thief Guild that were large enough and large enough.
Wild Bull Thief Guild gathered all kinds of berserk gangsters, numbering more than 50,000. There were almost all sorts of people, and they had plundered for many years. Their wealth was simply incomparable to that of a country. That’s why Fei Huang and Hua Ban took refuge in the Guild.
Although they were still not a match for the 2 level Heaven stage Wild Bull, there were two people in total, Fei Huang and Hua Ban.
As long as he broke through to the 2 level of Heaven realm, he would soon be able to overthrow the Wild Bull.
If the Wild Bull Thief Guild were gone, wouldn’t Fei Huang and Hua Ban be restored back to their former two bachelors?
“Sirs, don’t worry.” The Wild Bull smiled, he himself lifted the silver pot, filled his golden cup on the table with a glass of wine, handed it to Fei Huang, and then looked him straight in the eye, very sincerely, nodding gently as Fei Huang drank. After Fei Huang thanked him for his drink, he poured another cup of wine for Hua Ban, and then drank three cups of the golden cup to show that he enjoyed his wealth with his two brothers. The Wild Bull stood up and explained in a gentle voice to his brothers, “This place is far away from Black Wind City. I will do my utmost to make an enemy with my own hands and never allow a brother to harm us. Everyone, stay here and focus on your future affairs.”
“Clap clap clap!” Niu Gen took the lead and applauded enthusiastically.
When he heard that the Company Leader would take action, he was a Heaven Stage Martial Saint. With the help of two Deputy Company Leaders, capturing the Flaming Lion King was naturally not a difficult task.
And so, they all sprinted forward with full vigor.
Everyone wanted to show their meritorious service in front of the Guild Leader.
After the members of the party had dispersed, the Wild Bull indicated for the two vice-captains to sit beside him, saying with a smile, “In fact, ever since the plan to come here, I have been asked about the Lion King Valley. A few years ago, the Lion King Valley had a Golden Flaming Lion that fought with the former Fire Lion King. Furthermore, it injured the lion king and drove him out of the valley. When I learned of this news, a few days ago, I ordered the two lions to be put out of the valley and let them meet the wandering lion king. As I thought, with the help of the two Quasi-Heaven stage Mighty Flaming Lions, the Flaming Lion King decided to reclaim the throne … “Right now, they are most likely already in a deadlock. We only need to head there and we will be able to reap the benefits. So what’s the risk?”
Only then did Fei Huang and Hua Ban understand that what they had said before was nonsense.
This Wild Bull Guild Leader was not a simple person after all.
If the experts of the Western Heaven realm really occupied this place, would he bring his subordinates here to die? It turned out that he had already planned this and had long prepared to reveal his Guild Leader’s might to personally take on the Heavenly Stage Flame Lion King.
The two of them were awed by the Captain Wild Bull’s arrangement.
Facing such a person, wanting to plunder this bandit group was a bit difficult. No wonder the bounty on the bounty on the Wild Bull was 318 million. Until now, no one had been able to touch a single hair on his head. Fei Haung and Hua Ban both praised that this was a brilliant plan. They praised the Captain Wild Bull’s brilliance and then slightly expressed their loyalty. After hearing the Wild Bull nod his head, they secretly let out a sigh of relief.
They didn’t see that when the Captain Wild Bull was the most satisfied with his smile, his narrowed eyes flashed with a light, like the fangs of a venomous snake.
No one could see the light in his eyes, and no one could read his mind.
Only those who had been with the Captain Wild Bull for the longest period of time knew of this.
All the heaven stage experts who wanted to join the Wild Bull Thief Guild, and all the vice-captains of the Wild Bull Thief Guild, would all die by coincidence in every battle. Either they were unable to rescue them in time, or the vice-captains would reveal them, or they would encounter factors that were beyond their control … In short, for the time being, there was no vice-leader who could successfully live past two years.
As for the outside world’s guesses about the Wild Bull Thief Guild’s wealth, it doubled every year.
Every year, it would attract a Heaven Stage expert to join them.
But without exception, noone was the last to live.
Only all useless trash that were useless. Not the more intelligent and powerful vice-captains of the Heaven stage!
Here they arrived at the Lion King Valley.
Outside the valley were the footprints of the Fire Lion King and the other two lions.
At this moment, the Captain Wild Bull stood up from the Golden Chariot and expressed to the members that he would personally go to investigate the enemy’s intelligence. If there was a Western Heaven realm elite, when they released fireworks, everyone would temporarily retreat upon seeing the signal. If there were no experts from the Western Heaven Realm, kill the Fire Lion King, take over the Lion King Valley, and turn this place into a temporary stronghold for the Wild Bull Thief Guild.
The two vice-captains Fei Huang and Hua Ban also asked the Captain Wild Bull if he was willing to join hands to kill the Flaming Lion King.
If it wasn’t for the fear of alerting the powerhouses of the Western Heaven realm, Niu Gen and his team would have shouted long live greetings to the Captain Wild Bull and sent him off with the warmest applause …
On the high cliffs, there was a group of people that no one could see.
He was watching all of this.
“I was just looking for a Heaven stage to test your domain, but now someone has delivered himself to me.” I’ll leave the leader to you and the rest to everyone, let’s have a good fight! “I can’t believe it, these two lions were deliberately placed here by this guy. With such a cunning servant, what kind of person would the master behind him, the Emerald Lord, be?” Holding the book of the truth in her hands, Xue Wuxia ended her speech with a slight muttering to herself.
“I didn’t know before, but soon, he will become a dead man.” Yue Yang who had comprehended the Domain Power from the Gate of Life and Death was extremely confident.
“Meow!” Hui Tai Lang glared, warning the Golden Flaming Lion not to show off for contribution. He needed to have the resolve to be its lackey.
“…” The Golden Flaming Lion almost had tears in its eyes.
Was this guy a wolf or a man? Why was he so jealous?
