Chapter 1046 – Nan Gongsheng’s Arrival
A month after the assassination missions were set up, news of the Spiritual Blood Core Pills being offered as rewards spread through the assassination world.
Most of the other assassination organizations didn’t believe that the Spiritual Blood Core Pill was real and thought that it was just a ruse created by the Silence Assassination Division in order to attract attention.
Emperor Withered Shadow also set up a handful of assassination missions in Black Screen Corner. The assassins of Black Screen Corner were more professional, and two missions were completed within ten days of being set up.
“Did you hear? Ghost Kill, who’s ranked 148th in Black Corner Screen, broke through and is now an Emperor. His ranking has jumped to 82nd!”
“I heard about it as well. Apparently, he completed an assassination and obtained a treasure called the Spiritual Blood Core Pill.”
“Spiritual Blood Core Pill? That’s appeared in the rewards set by the Silence Assassination Division!”
Many professional assassins with cold expressions communicated with each other in a stronghold of Black Screen Corner and exchanged information.
An assassin breaking through or suddenly becoming stronger would obviously attract the attention of many other assassins. Assassins usually only picked the missions with the most plentiful rewards with the least difficulty.
“Boss, there are only four assassination missions that give out Spiritual Blood Core Pills left. Should we give one a try?” a skinny young figure in a dark corner said.
Next to him were two males and a female. They all radiated a bone-chilling killing intent, and those nearby didn’t dare to approach them.
“Sure. Although the target is Nine Darkness Palace, we just need to hide for a while after we succeed.”
The leading assassin couldn’t resist the temptation of a Spiritual Blood Core Pill.
In the Hall of Gods:
“Master, all of the assassination missions set in Black Screen Corner have been completed!”
Supreme Emperor Dark Night revealed an excited expression.
Ever since the missions were set, the assassins in the Silence Assassination Division doubled in number, and the smaller nearby assassination organizations had been eaten up by them. A small number of assassins had even moved over from Black Screen Corner.
“This will now be the main show!” Zhao Feng laughed.
“Continue putting up assassination missions, and increase the difficulty!” Zhao Feng ordered.
Later that day, Bi Qingyue, Supreme Emperor Dark Night, and Zhao Feng discussed the next group of targets. The first group consisted of Kings and a small number of Emperors, but this time would be more difficult. They even confirmed a number of Quasi-Sacred Lords.
“Hmm? This is the Grand Elder of the Darkness Ghost Clan!”
Zhao Feng found a certain piece of news by accident. The Darkness Ghost Clan and Dark Sky Gate were both subordinate forces of Nine Darkness Palace, and the Darkness Ghost Clan was the force that Zhao Wang had joined.
Zhao Feng realized that the Grand Elder of the Darkness Ghost Clan was the old elder that tried to kill Zhao Feng along with the black-armored Sacred Lord not long ago. The elder managed to survive since he specialized in spatial laws, but Zhao Feng had left a Mark of the God Eye on him.
“If that’s the case, then I’ll let him survive for a while longer!”
Zhao Feng had another plan that needed Zhao Wang’s cooperation, but the latter wasn’t strong enough yet.
“The reward for killing Quasi-Sacred Lords will be a Blood Essence Pill then!”
Zhao Feng took out a few Blood Essence Pills and put them into a small bottle.
The materials used to craft the Blood Essence Pills were completely different from the Spiritual Blood Core Pills. The Blood Essence Pills were made from pure ancient bloodlines, and it was useful for bloodlines.
Zhao Feng handed this small bottle to Emperor Withered Shadow and let him set some more assassination missions in Black Screen Corner.
Since the task of killing Quasi-Sacred Lords was too difficult, putting missions up in the Silence Assassination Division wasn’t very useful.
“I’ll leave this task to you. If you need any Blood Essence Pills or Spiritual Blood Core Pills, just come to me!”
Zhao Feng handed over the task to Bi Qingyue and Supreme Emperor Dark Night.
Bi Qingyue and Supreme Emperor Dark Night both wanted the Blood Essence Pills, so they paid extra attention to the matter and hoped that they would be able to obtain some Blood Essence Pills from Zhao Feng if they did a good job.
Later that day, another batch of Spiritual Blood Core Pill missions was sent out, causing chaos amongst the assassination world. Countless examples had already proven the worth of the Spiritual Blood Core Pills.
“I’ve disliked Nine Darkness Palace for a long time now. Who knows which powerful force this is? They’ve set up so many assassination missions!”
A muscular assassin took a mission and left with excitement.
“Hehe, it’s best to do these missions quickly!”
An assassin radiating a bloody aura revealed a deadly look in his eyes.
Everyone could fell that the difficulty of these assassinations had increased. The subordinate forces of Nine Darkness Palace had started to take action.
Another assassination mission then appeared in Black Screen Corner. The reward was a Blood Essence Pill, and it was set by the same person or force that gave out the Spiritual Blood Core Pills.
The top thirty assassins in Black Screen Corner were instantly attracted by it. Blood Essence Pills were extremely attractive to peak Emperors. Even Sacred Lords with weaker bloodlines would want them.
However, there was only one mission that gave Blood Essence Pills, and that was to kill the Quasi-Sacred Lords of Nine Darkness Palace.
That day, three different assassins accepted the mission!
Back in the hall of Gods, Zhao Feng gave one prepared Golden Winged Scarlet Tiger to Sacred Doctor Jade Spirit.
He didn’t expect the assassination missions to be finished so quickly. His pills were running out.
Zhao Feng immediately entered seclusion after returning to his residence.
“I’ll wait a little while longer before preparing to take over the lake!”
Herbs appeared in Zhao Feng’s hands as he started to cultivate. Flames of Wind Lightning started to surround him.
Some of the Five Poison Distinct Bees had entered the Ancient Dream Realm, and they were becoming stronger rapidly. However, the battle-power of the Golden Winged Scarlet Tigers was too great, and Zhao Feng didn’t have much confidence with just the Five Poison Distinct Bees.
Zhao Feng guessed that the majority of the Five Poison Distinct Bees would be lost in order to conquer the Golden Winged Scarlet Tigers. Therefore, Zhao Feng planned to control the Golden Winged Scarlet Tigers and turn them into his force in order to make up for the losses of the Five Poison Distinct Bees.
Three days later, Zhao Feng’s aura rose once more. The Fire of Wind Lightning coming from him became even purer and stronger.
“The Fire of Wind Lightning has reached completion!” Zhao Feng murmured in a low voice.
At this moment in time, he had used almost all of his Fire-elemental treasures. Zhao Feng bought a large amount of cultivation resources in the Heaven’s Legacy City, but they were all used up now.
Luckily, Zhao Feng had already started to gather resources for the Earth of Wind Lightning a long time ago.
After returning to the Hall of Gods, Zhao Feng used his subordinates to find more Earth-elemental resources.
“Eh? This aura…!”
Zhao Feng felt a wicked aura.
At this moment, a voice sounded a thousand miles away from Zhao Feng.
“Grand Elder, a Sacred Lord expert says they’re here to meet you!”
Zhao Feng’s figure instantly appeared outside the palace and disappeared into the sky.
The upper echelon of the Hall of Gods was facing a wicked male with purple-and-blood-colored hair. However, it was the male that had the momentum; Old Monster Xu and Supreme Emperor Dark Night were both on the Hall of Gods’ side, but they didn’t dare to do anything rashly.
“Stand down!” Zhao Feng’s voice sounded from behind them, and all the experts of the Hall of Gods started to slowly retreat. However, many of them were inspecting this mysterious Grand Elder.
“All of you, go away!” Bi Qingyue knew what Zhao Feng wanted and immediately scattered the crowd.
“Zhao Feng, I didn’t expect you to create your own power!” Nan Gongsheng’s eyes glittered with a dark purple light as he said somewhat unhappily.
In his heart, Zhao Feng was someone that aimed for the pinnacle of martial arts and had the potential to become a God. He shouldn’t have been wasting his time establishing a force and wasting resources on them.
Nan Gongsheng couldn’t help but be disappointed in the current Zhao Feng.
“Come in and talk!” Zhao Feng said.
The moment he saw Nan Gongsheng’s power, he knew that Nan Gongsheng hadn’t been completely controlled by the Evil God Mental Thought Body yet. If Nan Gongsheng had been completely assimilated, he would have absorbed the power of the Evil God without stopping. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he had already reached the late stages of the Mystic Light Realm in that case.
“Zhao Feng, let me see if you’ve become stronger or not!”
Battle-intent appeared in Nan Gongsheng’s eyes as a terrifying wicked aura spread throughout Heaven and Earth. Wicked flowers extended across his body.
“Nan Gongsheng, I won’t fight with you,” Zhao Feng’s emotionless voice sounded.
Nan Gongsheng paused, and his battle-intent instantly faded away. If Zhao Feng didn’t want to fight back, there was no point in fighting.
“He’s just a Quasi-Sacred Lord right now. Nan Gongsheng, he can’t be your match!” the Evil God Mental Thought Body’s voice sounded in Nan Gongsheng’s body.
“You already know my hidden card!” Zhao Feng replied, and Nan Gongsheng paused. He knew what Zhao Feng’s hidden card was – the God Slaying Arrow. If Zhao Feng used the God Slaying Arrow, then he would lose no matter what.
In reality, this wasn’t Zhao Feng’s true reason. At this point in time, Zhao Feng’s Soul Intent had successfully broken through to the early stages of the Mystic Light Realm. He could defeat Nan Gongsheng even without the God Slaying Arrow just with his pure Soul Intent.
However, he didn’t want to defeat Nan Gongsheng. Zhao Feng knew that Nan Gongsheng had set him as a target. Once Nan Gongsheng lost to Zhao Feng, he might start to absorb the power of the Evil God uncontrollably.
That was something that Zhao Feng didn’t want to see. At least for now, Nan Gongsheng could still think for himself. It would be best if he maintained that.
“Come in. The Hall of Gods is a force that opposes Nine Darkness Palace, so there might be Nine Darkness Palace scouts nearby!” Zhao Feng messaged.
Nan Gongsheng’s face instantly revealed a blood-colored light as killing intent surged from him. Nine Darkness Palace had chased after him for four entire years, even chasing him back to the True Martial Sacred Land and threatening his martial siblings, his master, and his clan. One could only imagine how much Nan Gongsheng hated Nine Darkness Palace.
However, Nan Gongsheng understood that he wasn’t a match for Nine Darkness Palace yet.
Nan Gongsheng followed Zhao Feng into a forbidden area at the back of the Hall of Gods.
“Nan Gongsheng, my force has just started to take action. Are you interested in joining?”
Zhao Feng smiled and faintly spoke after entering a secret hall.
