Supreme Emperor of Swords

Chapter 889 - The Stone Mouth City

Chapter 889 The Stone Mouth City

“Don’t tell anyone about this. Let me deal with it.” The handsome youth glanced at Duanmu Lei and added, “Those eight female slaves have heard the conversation, so you dispose of them for me.”

A chill ran through Duanmu Lei’s heart. Although his master was very young, he was really meticulous and ruthless. The eight dancers were truly unfortunate to hear such a conversation since the young master would definitely not let them get away with it.

“Yes! My lord!” Duanmu Lei stepped back respectfully.

The young man was left alone in the grand gold and jade tent.

The enchanting candlelight shone on the handsome young man’s face, outlining a sinister profile that made people shudder. He said to himself, “Hey, it seems that these arrogant barbarians from the Ocean Forest have gone crazy. How dare they show up in front of my Nalan family with those two bastards? Huh huh, do you want to compete with me for the position of the head of the family? How naive you are! I will definitely let you walk out of the Ocean Forest but never go back.”

The next morning, Ding Hao left the bank of Heaven River and continued their journey to the Stone Mouth Town.

Worried about his father’s safety, Ding Hao marched forward at high speed. By noon, they all entered the territory of the Stone Mouth Town and were less than 2,500 kilometers away from this old city.

Under the guidance of his metal dragon horses, the luxurious carriage began to fly at high speed.

While the experts in the guard camp of the Celestial Master all drove their wind beasts and followed Ding Hao tightly. Like a stream of light, they flew across the void and cut a large crack in the clouds.

“Chu, do you really want to see your Dad?” Ding Hao sat in the seat on the shaft and asked softly.

Nalan Chu nodded and said, “He left when I was very young. My mother had always expected him to come back to fulfill his promise. Later, my mother died of illness and he has never come back. I want to see that person and ask him why he didn’t come to see my mom.”

Ding Hao sighed and said, “What if he disowns you?”

Nalan Chu lowered her head and did not speak. After a while, she looked up and said, “Brother Ding, are you concerned that I will be sadder when I see him? Is that why you said that? You want me to be mentally prepared, right?”

She was really a clever girl.

Ding Hao suddenly felt that they were in the same boat as they lost their parents at a young age and lived with their sisters and had a hard childhood.

But he was much luckier than her, because his parents always loved him deeply and looked out for him at all costs. If that Heavenly Wrath Sword Nalan Xingde was really Chu’s biological father, then he could go back to the forest to find his own flesh and blood, but he never went back. Perhaps he had long forgotten Chu and the others.

In fact, the reason why Ding Hao brought Chu and Nalan Youxia with him this time was that he wanted to help them find their father. However, he was also a little worried that Chu would be sadder if their father was heartless. If that was the case, it would be better for them not to see him ever again.

“Brother Ding, don’t worry. I just want to ask him on behalf of my mother. If he really forgets his promise, I won’t be sad for such a person…” Chu said, gritting her teeth.

Ding Hao did not speak and gently touched the little girl’s head.

“You can call me master from now on,” Ding Hao said softly.

Chu was stunned, and then her face was full of ecstasy. She quickly knelt down in front of Ding Hao, kowtowed respectfully for three times, and said, “Disciple Nalan Chu greets the Master!”

Since she started learning from Ding Hao, she had dreamed of becoming Ding Hao’s disciple. Unfortunately, she had never had the courage to say her wish. Unexpectedly, Ding Hao took the initiative to accept her as his disciple today. Now her dream was fulfilled, which was like a pie falling from the sky.

Ding Hao accepted the three bows and nodded with a smile. “Get up.”

Nalan Chu was rejoicing.

Right at this moment, Ding Hao suddenly frowned slightly and seemingly noticed something. He used the Secret Voice-sending to say something to Shan Xiong who was following the carriage closely. Then, Shan Xiong urged the wind beast under him to rush forward quickly with six masters of the guard camp.

About eight minutes later, the seven people returned.

There was a white-robed sword man like a dead dog in Shan Xiong’s hand. Shan Xiong came to the front of the carriage and respectfully reported, “Celestial Master, there is indeed an ambush by the Nalan family ahead. A total of 36 people were there but they were defeated by us. They all fled except one whom I caught alive. Do you want to interrogate him?”

Ding Hao shook his head.

There was nothing to ask.

Last night, the man named Duanmu Lei must have seen something, and he must have returned to report it. Ding Hao just wanted to see what the Nalan family was going to do and their attitude toward Chu and her brother…

“It would be the best if they don’t offend me. Otherwise…”Ding Hao thought.

Seeing that Ding Hao was not interested in interrogating the swordsman, Shan Xiong casually threw him down from the sky like throwing trash.

“The person who made the decision for the Nalan family this time must be a self-righteous fool. He wants to deal with us with less than 40 Martial Grand Emperor Realm experts. It could be seen that this person doesn’t know how powerful the physical cultivators are. He only measures their strength by the Qi cultivation.” Ding Hao thought.

Ding Hao didn’t bother to pay attention to such an opponent.

“What? They failed?”

The young and handsome boy was astonished and said, “What the hell are you talking about? There are only seven opponents, but they defeat you all?”

Duanmu Lei was black and blue, lowering his head down in his chest, and said depressingly, “They’ve concealed their strength. In fact, they’re seven physical cultivators at the Sage Realm with magical Wind Beast Mount. We were beaten away the moment we saw them, and Feng Qingyang was captured.”

“Didn’t you say that they are just a group of savage physical cultivators and have very low Qi cultivation?” Anger was shown on the handsome young man’s face.

“Well… I am so foolish and made a mistake. I have never imagined that those physical cultivators from the Ocean Forest would be so powerful. However, it seems that only the seven physical cultivators are in the Sage Realm. In addition, their leader-the man with the bronze grimace mask has consummate swordsmanship which is far better than mine.”

Duanmu Lei trembled with fear deep in his heart. He knew that if this little ancestor became enraged, he would turn his back on everyone and do anything he wanted. So he hurriedly told the young man everything he knew in detail.

Fortunately, the handsome young man finally calmed down and muttered to himself, “Seven physical cultivators in the Sage Realm? This is a little troublesome now. It seems that I have to ask my mother for help.”

Duanmu Lei was overjoyed and said, “If Madam is willing to help, then there won’t be any problems.”

The handsome young man sneered and nodded.

Right at this moment, someone cried out in alarm. “Lord Feng Qingyang is back!”

Everyone turned to look, only to see a swordsman in a white robe, Feng Qingyang, staggering back with an angry expression on his face.

“Those barbarians of the Ocean Forest let you go?” The eyes of the handsome young man narrowed as he asked, “What did they get out of you?”

Feng Qingyang said awkwardly, “They didn’t ask me anything. The man with the bronze grimace mask directly ordered people to throw me away.” Feng Qingyang was extremely mad in his heart since such treatment was even more humiliating than torture.

The handsome young man was slightly stunned, looked at Feng Qingyang up and down carefully, and did not say anything.

By nightfall, Ding Hao and the others finally arrived at the Stone Mouth Town.

This old town close to the Western Continent was a military strategic town built by the first generation of the God’s Palace. Because of its important geographical location, it had become an important transfer point between countries after countless years of development. It was super popular with businessmen, so its scale had been expanded again and again. Now, it had become a big city that could accommodate hundreds of millions of people.

There were hundreds or thousands of caravans coming or leaving here, so Ding Hao and the others did not attract much attention.

After paying the required tax, the physical cultivators entered the Stone Mouth Town.

Under the guidance of the guide, Ding Hao and others initially planned to find an inn in the city, but unexpectedly, there were too many forces and people from all sides coming here, so the inns were basically fully booked. At last, Ding Hao simply took out a large sum of money and bought an enormous manor with an area of about a hundred acres.

Everyone settled down in the manor.

After arranging their accommodation well, Shan Xiong led his people to renovate the manor, while Ding Hao took Nalan Chu, Nalan Youxia, Evil Moon and Blackie to go on a tour in Stone Mouth City under the guidance of the guide.

The city was big enough to accommodate hundreds of millions of people with its streets inside crisscrossed. It was divided into numerous small areas and there were cities inside the city. It was very prosperous and bustling with people. All kinds of shops had colorful flags fluttering in the air. People from all walks of life could be seen here. It was said that only half of the citizens here were locals, while the other half were mercenary groups, rogue cultivators and wandering warriors from all over the world.

Ding Hao even saw a birdman with wings on his back.

“These are the birdmen from the Western Continent. Three months ago, the God’s Palace made a truce agreement with the birdmen, so the trade on the border was restored. Many birdmen’s caravans also tried to come here to trade. Driven by the desire to earn money, these guys would like to take the risk. Many caravans of the Eastern Human Clan also took the risk of going to the territory of the birdmen’s territory…”

The guide was an old man in his sixties with grey beard and hair. He looked experienced and introduced everything here to Ding Hao.

Ding Hao nodded.

This was the first time he had seen the legendary birdmen.

They looked very similar to the angels in western myths on the earth in his previous life, but the wings of these birdmen were not pure white. Instead, they were colorful. Ding Hao could feel that wings with different colors had different power. As the ages of these bird men varied, the length of their wings also varied. Some short ones were three to four meters long, and some long ones were over twenty meters.

The birdmen looked like typical western whites, and their eyes were of different colors, which were obviously different from those of the Human Clan in the Eastern Continent.

However, Ding Hao took no interest in these creatures at all.
