Chapter 1120: Internal Strife
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Eh? Zhu, what do you have in mind?” Bai Wanli asked curiously. To him, Zhu Tianfei was a capable person who normally took the lead in battles. However, when it came to giving suggestions, he tended to be more reserved.
“I don’t have an opinion on this. I just wanted to tell you that Ding Menghan is with me,” Zhu Tianfei said.
“Oh?” Ganyang Zhenren’s eyes lit up. As long as someone from the Ding family was alive, they would have an excuse to rebuild Green Willow Heights.
As for whether or not Ding Menghan, a girl close to Jiang Fei’s age, was capable of managing an entire sect, Bai Wanli and Ganyang Zhenren did not appear too bothered by it.
Rebuilding Green Willow Heights was merely a part in the grand scheme of things. Their true objective was to enact an occupation point next to the Emperor’s Capital so that they could shift the Martial Art Alliance’s headquarters over. By then, they would be able to cooperate with the military rightfully without being accused of colluding with the court.
In essence, Green Willow Heights had the same motive as Jiang Fei, which was to make the court their implicit ally.
Since there was still a surviving member in the Ding family, the subsequent negotiation process would be much easier. Very soon, the military and the Martial Art Alliance came to an agreement. The plan to rebuild Green Willow Heights was practically confirmed. Thereafter, as long as the Martial Art Alliance provided manpower, and the military provided finances and resources, the new headquarters of the Martial Art Alliance would be built next to the Emperor’s Capital. Henceforth, the cooperation between the military and the martial artists would become even more widespread.
Although the decision to rebuild Green Willow Heights was already made, nobody seemed to care about the opinions of the sect’s disciples or even Ding Menghan herself. These people were basically scapegoats. As they did not have a grand status like Jiang Fei, the Martial Art Alliance’s elders did not feel the need to compensate them at all.
Seeing that the military and the Martial Art Alliance had come to a consensus, Jiang Fei did not want to waste any more time. He slowly made his way out of the meeting room and returned to Winter Islands with Ariel.
Over the next two days, Jiang Fei felt extremely nervous despite not having much to do. For the time being, there was nothing that required his immediate attention.
However, he felt nervous because the deadline he had given Bennette Straz was getting closer. Jiang Fei was unsure of whether or not the Dragon God would give him the Core of Life.
In the blink of an eye, two days had gone by. Today was the final date Jiang Fei had given Bennette Straz to make up his mind.
By noon, Jiang Fei still had not received any news from the Dragon God, which made him even more worried.
“It seems like we can’t rely on them!” Jiang Fei frowned. From the looks of things, the Dragon God’s clan had either failed to acquire the Core of Life or they did not want to cooperate with Jiang Fei.
“0542, track the location of the Core of Life,” Jiang Fei ordered. If the Dragon God still did not contact him within the next few hours, Jiang Fei would work with the Martial Art Alliance to retrieve it forcefully.
As Bella’s condition was getting very unstable, Jiang Fei did not want to prolong this matter.
At approximately 5 o’clock in the afternoon, Jiang Fei was about to head to China to get in touch with the Martial Art Alliance when his communication device finally rang.
“Is that Ah Fei?” Bennette Straz asked in the voice message.
“Yeah.” Jiang Fei nodded. However, he was already disappointed with the Unknowns.
“We have obtained the Core of Life. However, we are currently faced with some issues and we need you to save us!” Bennette Straz sounded urgent. Jiang Fei heard explosions through the communication device.
“What’s going on?” Jiang Fei was stunned.
“There’s been an internal strife!”
“Give me your location!” Jiang Fei responded immediately. He was obligated to help them. If he missed this opportunity, the Dragon God’s clan would be annihilated and Jiang Fei would have to fight with the Unknowns on his own.
By the time Bennette Straz sent the location to Jiang Fei, Ariel and Bella had already appeared next to him. Bella had already gotten enough rest and was no longer looking as exhausted as before. Although the Valium on her wristband would only allow her to activate her ultimate skill one last time, Bella had to show up at this battle. Otherwise, based on Jiang Fei and Ariel’s capabilities, they would not be able to save the Dragon God’s clan on their own.
To be honest, Jiang Fei suspected that the Dragon God’s clan might have set up a trap with the other Unknowns. However, he was not worried as he had a lot of confidence in Bella’s powers after she activated her ultimate skill.
If the Unknowns truly had plans to dominate Jiang Fei with their larger headcounts, Jiang Fei would use the opportunity to wipe them out with Bella’s strengthened capabilities after she activated her ultimate skill. The amount of Valium left in the wristband would be enough to sustain Bella for a while even though she may not be able to activate her ultimate skill again.
With the Unknowns’ organization severely impacted, and even if Jiang Fei did not manage to snatch the Core of Life, he would feel much more relaxed in the future if he worked with the Martial Art Alliance to attack them.
Very soon, Jiang Fei and the two others were ready to depart. This time, the point of battle was also within China’s borders. Moreover, it was close to the Snow Mountain Sect up in the high grounds of the eastern region.
As a white light flashed, Jiang Fei and the two girls appeared near the Snow Mountain Sect. Thereafter, Jiang Fei summoned the Gigantic Sword as the three immediately rushed toward the location provided by Bennette Straz.
After approximately an hour, they finally arrived near the given location. Right then, they were able to sense strong energy waves from afar.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
After travelling ten minutes closer, the explosions got even louder.
“Ariel, be careful!” Bella warned. They had gotten into the Unknowns’ region where radars could easily pick up on their presence.
“Ah Fei, is that you?” Very soon, Bennette Straz contacted Jiang Fei through the communication device. Clearly, he had also discovered traces of Jiang Fei and the girls.
“Yeah!” Jiang Fei nodded.
“We’re over here!” The Dragon God sent Jiang Fei a new location along with the aura of his clan members so that Jiang Fei would not accidentally hurt them.
“Don’t you have an alliance?” Jiang Fei asked. While the Dragon God’s clan only had around thirty members, there were surrounded by close to a hundred Unknowns.
“No!” Bennette Straz replied.
“Damn. You guys are terrible at maintaining good relationships!” Jiang Fei cursed before bringing Ariel and Bella to the Dragon God’s new location.
A beam of light was suddenly fired at Jiang Fei’s Gigantic Sword. However, 0542 had activated the protective shield in time to block the attack. Although the 100,000 energy bars were very minimal for Jiang Fei, 0542 was still able to make good use of them.
