Chapter 766: Ingratitude
Translator: _Tat_ Editor: Rundi
Inside the stone room, the three astonishing treasures, the ruler, the cauldron, and the flag, were all emitting much spiritual light – dazzling and blinding. Even at first glance, it was obvious that these treasures were extraordinary and were of the ultimate level!
However, nobody was looking at them anymore!
Ji Qian Bai and everyone’s gazes were fixated on Ling Xian. Other than astonishment, there was only heat.
The Soaring Key!
These words alone were enough to drive everyone in the world crazy. They were no exceptions.
Ling Xian’s expression darkened as he glanced at the original leveled cultivators. He hissed, “Supreme Headmaster, you have made your promise to me earlier. Are you going to break it?”
“If this was anything else, I would let you have it. But not the Soaring key. You have to leave it behind.”
Ji Qian Bai’s gaze was hot, everyone else’s was the same.
Of course, for the Soaring Key, they no longer cared about the promise and no longer cared about their pride.
This made Ling Xian’s heart fall to the bottom of the abyss but at the same time, he was extremely angry.
Ji Qian Bai and they were waiting for him to break open the stone door. They have agreed to his condition but they were regretting that now. This was the same as breaking down the bridge after they cross it. They were not men of their words!
Anyone would be furious at this!
“Good. Very good. It seems like you do not care about your face anymore.”
Ling Xian’s expression was cold and now knows that this turn of events will not turn for the better. Therefore, he angrily scolded, “You burn the bridge after you cross it? You are not men of your words. Is this the normal behavior of the Shang Qing Sect? You original leveled cultivators think you can do things like this?”
Hearing this, not only did Ji Qian Bai and them not reveal any embarrassment, they had vicious looks on their faces and their eyes were exploding with killer’s intent.
“Xian Ling, you are a pupil of the Shang Qing Sect. Allowing you to take a treasure was giving you face. Now that I am telling you that you can’t take one, you need to piss off right away!”
“The Soaring Key is of the utmost importance and you have no right to have possession of it. Give it up and I will allow you to live since you have done well for the Shang Qing Sect.”
“Xian Ling, you have to think this through well. Don’t make a mistake and ruin your own future.”
Several other people all chimed in. Their tone appeared to be wanting the best for Ling Xian, but in reality, they were filled with killer’s intent and threats!
What did Ji Qian Bai mean by he needed to piss off?
What did he mean by he had no right to possess it?
What did they mean?
Ling Xian’s anger grew and grew. His hollow eyes were full of coldness, “What a great bunch of Shang Qing Sect management. What a great bunch original leveled cultivators. I am extremely tired of your ugly mouth and lips.”
“At least you remember what I’ve done for the Shang Qing Sect… but now, you are returning my kindness with ingratitude! You are a shameless bunch!”
Ling Xian was bathing in anger. He has helped the Shang Qing Sect by transforming their protective arrays and allowing it to gain consciousness and improving its capabilities.
That favor he did for them was of utmost value!
Yet these people seem to have all forgotten about that. How shameless were they? Why wouldn’t he be angry?
Ji Qian Bai hissed again, his eyes too, were turning colder and colder.
Everyone else reacted the same way. Only the Leader of the Array Path softly sighed and looked sorry.
Honestly speaking, Ling Xian did the Shang Qing Sect many favors. Without him, their array never would’ve transformed and if they tried, it may have failed and the Shang Qing Sect would’ve weakened. After Ling Xian helped, however, their capabilities increased. Just how much greatness did he accomplish!
Yet now, they were about to act against their savior. Why wouldn’t the leader feel embarrassed?
Sadly, other than him, nobody else felt the same way.
It was true that he did them a favor, but compared to the Soaring Key, that was nothing. They rather keep the key than their face.
Plus, they were used to being in power and ordering their subordinates around. Their nature was to be overbearing and illogical. If the people were lower in cultivation than them, they felt like they had the right to order them around!
“Xian Ling, I am ordering you to hand over the key. You better obey or I will have to kill you!”
“The Shang Qing Sect raised you for so many years, which is enough to repay that favor. Don’t use that against us!”
“Stop talking bullsh!t! So what we are taking advantage of you? So what we are not being grateful? I can kill you with one hand!”
Everyone opened their mouth to speak. They all decided to not care and stopped trying to cover up their lack of humility.
This infuriated Ling Xian. He glanced over everyone. “Raised me for so many years? You have the audacity to say that? Let me ask you, all these years, have you ever given me any inheritance?
“Have you ever given me a spiritual Dan?”
“Have you ever given me a spiritual stone?”
“Everything I have gained in the Shang Qing Sect was earned by my own hands. How are they at all related to you?”
A series of questions arose that stifled Ji Qian Bai and them. The coldness in their gazes, however, intensified.
They couldn’t answer him because Ling Xian was completely right. Not only was he not at all taken care of by the Shang Qing Sect, he instead, did so much for the Sect!
However, these people were used to being overbearing. Though his words should embarrass them, their killer’s intent was overflowing instead.
Ji Qian Bai stepped out one step and spiritual energy shot through the cloud and shocked the entire ruins. He glanced over at Ling Xian emotionless. “Stop talking useless trash to me. I am going to ask you one last time, are you going to hand over the Soaring Key or not?”
“I have only one word for you.”
Ling Xian’s expression was cold as he uttered out a statement that was full of killer’s intent.
After he spoke, a dash of killer’s intent roared through the sky, dropping the temperature in the entire room to below freezing point.
“You are seeking death!”
“You are merely a completion leveled cultivator yet you dare to behave so erratically before me? You are impatient to die!”
“Asking you to hand it over is giving you face. I can easily kill you.”
The cultivation Leader’s face revealed his desire to kill. He wanted to say more but Ling Xian interrupted him.
“Shut the hell up right now!”
He commanded and glanced all around. “You are a bunch of ungrateful and shameless son of b!tches who burn the bridge immediately after you cross it. What right do you have to lecture me?”
After he spoke, the Cultivation Leader became furious. A dash of Qi slammed into Ling Xian.
Since it was before he could defend, Ling Xian puked out a mouthful of fresh blood and slammed into the wall behind him.
There was nothing else he could do. There were four original leveled cultivators. His clone was only at the intermediate stage of the completion level, and he couldn’t at all defend.
“Now you know the difference between you and me.”
Ji Qian Bai spoke, “There are eight original leveled cultivators here. Even if there were only one of us, you cannot escape.”
“Ahem, you are right. With me alone, I cannot escape all of you.” Ling Xian coughed up blood as he boiled in anger and as his killer’s intent flared up.
He knew that it would be extremely difficult for him to leave this place. But more than hopelessness, he felt anger.
These people burned the bridge after crossing it, bit back their words, returned his kindness with ingratitude, and they weren’t even embarrassed by it. Anyone would be furious!
“It’s good that you know. So, hand over the Soaring Key and let me set a seal on you. Only then will I let you live.”
Ji Qian Bai was expressionless. It was obvious that he didn’t think anything of Ling Xian.
Everyone else was the same. There was only taunt and disdain on their faces. They were now certain that Ling Xian would hand over the key and forever be a slave to the Sect.
Ling Xian responded to them with merely one statement. A furious statement that was full of killer’s intent.
