Chapter 995 Traitor
In a flash, Yang Chen appeared at a manmade park located in the south of
The lake in the park was surrounded by conifers and inside of it was a
A man and woman were standing inside it and based on their outfits, it
was obvious they didnâ€™t belong to society.
The man was wearing a grey checkered robe with his hair up. He was
carrying a sword on his back which was covered by black cloth.
The woman was dressed in a jade-colored Changshan with her hair down. She
looked decent enough but her arrogant scowl was marring her features.
The man was in the last phase of the Soul Forming stage whereas the woman
was in the middle-late phase. Their cultivation was nearly the same but
based on the cold divine sense from earlier, it definitely came from the
Yang Chen was getting a feel for them and they were doing the same to
him. A shocked expression showed up on their faces when they realized
they couldnâ€™t see through his cultivation.
Yang Chen laid his gaze on their waist and saw badges that were inscribed
with the word â€کHuangâ€™ on them. It was an exact replica of the one he
had seen on the Taoist.
It looked like they were both from the â€کHuangâ€™ stage in Hongmeng. It
made sense for Hongmeng to send people out to investigate the Hongmeng
Messengerâ€™s sudden death. But the people that they sent did not come
across as friendly.
â€œYouâ€™re Yang Chen?â€ The woman voiced out first with a cold tone.
Yang Chen thought to himself, Their cultivation isnâ€™t as good as mine.
Honestly, itâ€™s not even comparable but they still act so arrogant. They
must be looking down on me because they have Hongmeng behind them.
Yang Chen was getting annoyed at the thought of this. It was fine if a
stronger cultivator looked down on him but how dare they act so
arrogantly with their trivial cultivation. He was not willing to let this
go so easily.
â€œIs your confirmation really necessary?â€ Yang Chen smiled faintly.
â€œJust answer our question. We donâ€™t have time for games.â€ The woman
frowned. â€œWas Monk Tianyin killed by Yan Buwen?â€
â€œThatâ€™s a random question. I donâ€™t even know you guys. Whoâ€™s Monk
â€œDonâ€™t try to act like you donâ€™t know him. Weâ€™re special
messengers sent by Hongmeng to investigate Yan Buwen. Iâ€™m Lu Huating
and this is my senior, Hao Changfeng. Weâ€™re here to interrogate you on
behalf of Hongmeng. Tianyin was our messenger and he was murdered in
Beijing within a few months of leaving Hongmeng. His soul badge was
broken which alerted the elders. Youâ€™d better tell us everything if you
donâ€™t want to get into trouble.â€ Lu Huating grunted.
Soul badge? Something like that existed? No wonder they knew about the
â€œYou should ask General Cai from the Yellow Flame Iron Brigade.â€ Yang
â€œCai Yuncheng said you killed Yan Buwen and you had the absolute
advantage by killing him with the Power of Thunder. Is it true?!â€ Lu
Huating asked warily.
Yang Chen didnâ€™t deny it, nodding his head in agreement. â€œGeneral Cai
wouldnâ€™t lie to you guys.â€
â€œPower of Thunder. Itâ€™s one of the strongest and hardest divine
powers that can be controlled in Heaven and Earth. If you really can
control it, why didnâ€™t you kill Yan Buwen with it in the beginning? Why
did you wait until our messenger had died?!â€ Lu Huatingâ€™s eyes
gleamed with malicious intent.
Yang Chen was exasperated at his question. â€œHowâ€™s that my fault? Why
donâ€™t you ask the stupid monk why he did what he did. He foolishly
sacrificed himself despite obviously being weaker.â€
â€œYou! What did you say?! Stupid?!â€ Lu Huating was furious.
Hao Changfeng beckoned his junior to calm down. â€œFine, even if Tianyin
monk did miscalculate his abilities and was killed by Yan Buwen, what
about his staff and other mystical artifacts? Why are they missing?â€
â€œDidnâ€™t Cai Yuncheng tell you guys this? They were all destroyed by
Yan Buwenâ€™s antimatter energy.â€
â€œHe did say this but heâ€™s a mundane so obviously he couldnâ€™t see
through a cultivatorâ€™s tricks. From what I know, you inherited the
former Plutoâ€™s divinity which means youâ€™re also capable of using the
space laws. They wouldâ€™ve known if you stashed it in one of your
â€œYouâ€™re suspecting me of stealing them?â€
Yang Chen cursed internally. Obviously he wanted to keep the mystical
artifacts. But they were really destroyed by Yan Buwen that dick!
Not only that, even the Ganyuan Tiangang Bracelet that he used out of
emergency was destroyed into pieces!
â€œIâ€™ll be honest with you. Out of the three mystical artifacts, only
the kasaya belonged to Tianyin. The remaining two artifacts were lent to
him. You would be stealing Honmengâ€™s possessions if you kept them!â€
Yang Chen thought to himself, These cultivators really arenâ€™t
â€کrichâ€™, they have to borrow mystical artifacts to put on the dog for
their own dignity.
Xiao Zhiqing mentioned before that the hidden clans were the actual
wealthy ones. It looked like she wasnâ€™t lying.
â€œThe artifacts were destroyed. Thereâ€™s nothing I can say to convince
Lu Huating had been suppressing her temper and her face darkened when she
heard that. â€œDonâ€™t you think youâ€™re so almighty just because your
cultivation is greater than ours. Our elders are stronger than you! No
one can help you even if youâ€™re from the Yang clan!â€
â€œWhat a joke. He made a mistake and you reprimand me for avenging him.
Donâ€™t come here and talk about shit like this when you fail to control
the foundations of China. You guys are acting like a typical Monday
morning quarterback, a shameless one too for framing someone who had
helped you guys.â€ Yang Chen sneered.
â€œHow arrogant! Do you think we wouldnâ€™t dare to attack you!â€ Lu
Huating threatened him.
â€œI highly doubt your capabilities.â€
â€œYouâ€™re just a wild cultivator. How dare you go against Hongmeng! I
bet youâ€™re used to running rampantly in this filthy world!â€
Hao Changfeng pressed her shoulders calmly when he sensed that she was
getting agitated. â€œHis cultivation is much stronger than ours. He might
be suspicious but weâ€™d better return to Master and let him make the
Her gaze was cold as she replied to him, â€œYouâ€™re right, weâ€™ll let
him live for a few more days. The truth will be out soon!â€
Having said that, they gave Yang Chen one last look before deciding to
But Yang Chenâ€™s gaze was icy and he blocked their path in a flash.
â€œYou guys are leaving so soon? I was thinking of inviting you two for
tea.â€ Yang Chen gave a gentle smile.
â€œNo need for that. The clan leader should be serving us tea. Youâ€™re
not up to par.â€ Lu Huating sounded disdainful.
Yang Chen seemed troubled. â€œBut I donâ€™t want to let you guys leave
just like this, what should I do?â€
Hao Changfeng seemed alarmed at his insinuation. â€œAre you thinking of
fighting us? Do you plan to go against Hongmeng publicly?!â€
â€œEh, what are you saying? I wouldnâ€™t dare to do that.â€ Yang Chen
chuckled and waved his hands. â€œI was just worried. What if you guys
returned and hired someone powerful who thinks I framed the monk? What
should I do then?â€
â€œHmph, you donâ€™t have to worry about that. Our Master is an upright
person. He would never falsely accuse an innocent man. If you really are
innocent, prove it by staying in Zhonghai until our Master comes,â€ Lu
Huating said with an arrogant voice.
Yang Chen nodded. As though reminded of something, he asked them, â€œDoes
everyone from Hongmeng have a soul badge?â€
â€œWhy are you asking this?â€ Hao Changfeng frowned.
Yang Chen looked innocent as he replied, â€œDonâ€™t get nervous, Iâ€™m
just curious. Itâ€™s because I met a disheveled Taoist before and I asked
him if he feared if Hongmeng would catch him. He said you guys couldnâ€™t
find him. Oh yeah, he also had a Blood Dragonâ€™s Golden Daggerâ€¦â€
â€œWhat?!â€ Lu Huating exclaimed, â€œBlood Dragonâ€™s Golden Dagger?!
How did you meet Huangyun, the traitor?!â€
â€œTraitor?â€ Yang Chen was confused. â€œYou guys know him? Why do you
call him a traitor? He seems nice, I even chatted with him.â€
Yang Chen felt that his acting skills were getting better and better. He
could lie through his teeth so naturally that he should be awarded an
Lu Huating and Hao Changfeng exchanged glances with each other. They had
a look of disbelief on their faces as if hearing of something so shocking.
