Chapter 795 – Framing
These people had arrived even earlier than Zhao Feng, and they knew what was valuable. Although they didn’t recognize the exact history of the Purple Wind Lightning Lion bones, that didn’t stop them from estimating its value.
The person who told him to stop included the purple-robed youth. He was a Head disciple and had reached the half-step King level, but he wasn’t on the Imperial Genius rankings.
“Everyone that’s here gets a share, and I want some of those bones,” Zhao Feng said directly, and his attitude infuriated the Purple Sun Palace. A genius from the Purple Sun Palace had found this place first, and Zhao Feng wanted to take one of the most valuable materials even though he didn’t do anything? This made them angry and laugh at the same time.
“Hmph, we haven’t even decided how to split the resources yet.” The purple-robed youth furrowed his eyebrows. Although the cultivation of this youth wasn’t very high, he had actually had such a thick face.
“What’s going on?” Zhao Feng’s eyes turned toward the Head disciple of his clan, Kong Feiling.
Kong Feiling had a weird expression, and Zhao Feng finally understood that the two forces hadn’t even decided how to split the resources yet.
The Purple Sun Palace had found this place first and wanted the biggest cut, but several people from the Ten Thousand Sacred Clan were also present when it was found. The Ten Thousand Sacred Clan wanted to split it 50-50, but the Purple Sun Palace wanted at least 60%.
“It’s simple then – let one’s own abilities decide.”
Hearing that, those from the Purple Sun Palace became furious.
“Brat, if we let our own abilities decide, you won’t be able to obtain these rare Lightning Dao bones!” An elder from the Purple Sun Palace roared with laughter.
“Fine, I’ll back out for now.” Zhao Feng shrugged his shoulders and moved toward Kong Feiling.
“Wait, the bones have disappeared!” The eyes of a chubby middle-aged man from the Purple Sun Palace bulged out, and everyone looked over.
The bones of the Purple Wind Lightning Lion had disappeared.
A dark streak of silver flashed.
“Spatial technique!” the purple-robed youth yelled as his half-step Divine Sense filled the air, but the streak of silver disappeared.
“Brat, did you just steal the bones?”
Those from the Purple Sun Palace looked over. Even the purple-haired youth was suspicious of Zhao Feng.
“Ridiculous. Which one of you saw me steal the bones?” Zhao Feng said disdainfully, and everyone’s expression froze.
Indeed, Zhao Feng hadn’t done anything. He was being watched by both sides the entire time, so he didn’t have any chance to do anything.
“Furthermore, who has the ability to steal something right in front of two half-step Kings?” Zhao Feng said righteously.
Those from the Purple Sun Palace and the Ten Thousand Sacred Clan acted as if they had seen a ghost. Logic told them that Zhao Feng couldn’t have done it, and yet instinct told them that Zhao Feng was definitely related to it.
“Then who do you think did it?” the purple-robed youth asked.
Zhao Feng was silent for a moment; “According to my analysis, there’s only one person who has the ability to do this, and he’s not from the two forces.”
Hearing that, everyone’s heart shook.
“Nan Gongsheng!” Kong Feiling and the purple-robed youth exclaimed.
Ability-wise, Nan Gongsheng was the most suspicious.
“It might be Nan Gongsheng. His spatial techniques have reached a profound level.”
Some people soon agreed. After all, there was no one among the two forces with such ability.
Zhao Feng laughed in his heart. Nan Gongsheng, I’m not purposely framing you, this is just the logical answer.
In the Demigod Forgotten Garden, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng had worked together before, and Nan Gongsheng played a big role in slaying Wen Luoan.
Nan Gongsheng did have the ability to steal the bones, but he was rather proud. He might take them by force, but he would never steal them.
“I didn’t expect that Nan Gongsheng to be a thieving bastard.” The purple-robed youth had a grim expression. If this was true, then they wouldn’t be able to do anything against Nan Gongsheng. They could do nothing against Nan Gongsheng’s spatial talents.
Right at this moment:
Another rare material flew into the air and disappeared.
“That was a bull’s heart!”
“That was the heart of an ancient bull that had almost reached the Void God Realm. It can strengthen one’s organs and is suitable for body-strengthening.”
Chaos broke out. By the end – no one knew who started it – but everyone started to take whatever they saw. The streak of silver would occasionally appear.
“Nan Gongsheng…! Bastard!”
Both forces swore as they fought. Although this thief hadn’t taken much, they were all the most valuable.
“Hm? Who’s cursing me?” The Divine Sense of a King swept over.
Everyone’s soul shook as a Magnificent Power arrived. The two forces that were cursing and swearing instantly felt unable to breathe.
“Who’s cursing me?”
A youth arrived with just a couple steps.
The expressions of everyone from the two forces stiffened, and those that had cursed out loud were scared.
At this moment, Nan Gongsheng had finished taking some of the resources from the scorpion King Palace, and the rest weren’t rare enough. He was just about to leave when he heard someone cursing him; the senses of a Void God Realm King were extremely strong.
“This… it was an accident,” the purple-robed youth and company started to explain.
“You can’t blame us. That Zhao Feng was suspicious of you, so we…” The Purple Sun Palace group started to shift the blame onto Zhao Feng.
Zhao Feng? Nan Gongsheng revealed a weird look and gazed toward a handsome youth.
“That’s right. I was suspicious of Nan Gongsheng, but I never swore or cursed at him,” Zhao Feng said without fear. He just wanted to direct the suspicion away himself. After all, Nan Gongsheng was strong enough to handle them all. Those who had sworn and cursed out loud were from the Purple Sun Palace.
“Why were you suspicious of me?” Nan Gongsheng stared at Zhao Feng with a grim expression. This youth had the same name as that person. That person had even killed the Emperor of Death – Nan Gongsheng couldn’t reach that person’s height.
However, after scanning with his Divine Sense, he determined that they were not the same person. The aura of their techniques was different, and Nan Gongsheng just couldn’t connect this weak youth with the Left Eyed Heavenly Emperor.
“Senior Martial Brother Nan, it’s like this…” Zhao Feng told him a summary of what had happened.
“You’re very honest, and your suspicions… are indeed logical.” Nan Gongsheng faintly nodded his head. It was hard to find anyone else that could steal in front of two half-step Kings without them realizing. Even Nan Gongsheng would have to give it his full strength to do so.
“As for you brats…” Nan Gongsheng’s cold gaze scanned over the purple-robed youth and company.
A spatial disturbance crushed over.
The purple-robed youth and company all spat out a mouthful of blood; they were injured. None of them could do anything in front of a King that specialized in Space. Only Kong Feiling might be able to exchange a few blows with Nan Gongsheng, but Kong Feiling always thought well of Nan Gongsheng and hadn’t cursed at him.
The only ones that Nan Gongsheng had punished were those who had cursed him. How dare they humiliate a King?
Those from the Purple Sun Palace had dead-fish-eyed expressions, and they didn’t dare to say anything.
“I wouldn’t bother stealing it from you, I would just take it by force.” Nan Gongsheng snickered coldly, then waved his hand and used a spatial technique to gather the resources in the underground chamber.
No one from the Purple Sun Palace or the Ten Thousand Sacred Clan dared to stop him or take anything, apart from one person – Zhao Feng.
Zhao Feng didn’t stop Nan Gongsheng, he just started to take some other resources as well.
“Zhao Feng….” Kong Feiling and company all sweated for Zhao Feng.
“Hahaha… you’re interesting and courageous, just like that person!” Nan Gongsheng laughed. Most resources here were of no use to him, but Zhao Feng’s actions had raised his interest.
Zhao Feng used the Water of Wind Lightning when moving.
“Wind Lightning? What’s the relationship between you and that Zhao Feng!?” Nan Gongsheng exclaimed.
“Relationship? My name is Zhao Feng.” Zhao Feng smiled as he quickly took the resources.
At this moment in time, those from the Ten Thousand Sacred Clan and the Purple Sun Palace didn’t dare to do anything.
“Similar, so similar….” Nan Gongsheng murmured.
The technique that this Zhao Feng cultivated was similar to the original Zhao Feng, and they even acted in similar ways. Of course, Nan Gongsheng was suspicious, but he didn’t actually believe it. He wouldn’t believe that the Left Eyed Heavenly Emperor, an unparalleled Emperor, would be this weak youth.
A while later, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng took everything from the underground chamber.
Nan Gongsheng didn’t attack Zhao Feng. Maybe it was because the latter’s actions suited his taste, or maybe it was because of that person.
Zhao Feng remained expressionless after taking the resources. He had a good control over Nan Gongsheng’s thoughts, and he was certain that Nan Gongsheng wouldn’t dislike his actions.
Nan Gongsheng…. I won’t reveal my identity to you, but I won’t hide it either. Let’s see if you can figure it out or not. A smile appeared on Zhao Feng’s face as he looked toward the direction where Nan Gongsheng went.
He decided to get a good control over Nan Gongsheng’s mindset in order to get himself more benefits. After all, Nan Gongsheng was definitely one of the strongest people that had entered the Divine Illusion Dimension.
An hour later, Nan Gongsheng left the territory of the scorpionmen and headed toward the Evil God’s Altar.
The Evil God’s Altar released a mysterious power that made the nearby Heaven Earth Yuan Qi unusual. Those with stronger bloodlines felt it even more intensely.
According to the reactions of the underground races, the Evil God’s Altar was creating some kind of miracle.
“The defeated scorpionman King should have escaped to the Evil God’s Altar. We’ll follow behind Nan Gongsheng. He can do all the work while we take everything.” Old Fei’s eyes twinkled with cunning.
