Divine Emperor of Death - Chapter 1873: On Purpose?
Chapter 1873: On Purpose?
“What!? Senior can’t be serious.” Dalila Leehan cried out in outrage.
Fifty Peak-Level Spirit Stone Vein Cores!?
Even she felt that she wasn’t worth that much!
“Don’t be so full of yourself.”
The Venerated Twilight Pill Emperor’s expression was cold as he stared at Dalila Leehan.
“This isn’t about your value but for your actions that harmed the reputation of my Glorious Pill Palace.”
Dalila Leehan looked shaken, but there was another voice that echoed, sounding equally dazed. It was Young Master Faus who appeared shaken as he looked at Venerated Twilight Pill Emperor while looking lost.
Was his bride going to be not his anymore? Only he knew how he looked forward to marrying Dalila Leehan as she is a remarkable beauty who would stand on top of the excellent ones and possessed alchemical skills that he acknowledged, for she passed the Thousand Pill Palace’s Emperor Grade Immaculate Alchemist Exam, making it known that her knowledge was clear without any difference to the records.
Only people with vast soul energy would be able to do it, but she ended up passing it with only her Elder Soul Stage Cultivation, making her popular, which was what caught his attention as she had potential, causing him to want her in the first place.
“Little Faus, don’t worry.” Venerated Twilight Pill Emperor, “She’s not worthy of you. Your aunt Farah just told you that she would get you an even more capable woman to be your thirteenth wife in the future.”
“Ah, if that’s the case, then…” Young Master Faus appeared enthusiastic, but it quickly died as it came.
“Don’t worry about your reputation. You just met this woman now, in any case. It’s not much of a deal. We’ll take care of it.”
The Venerated Twilight Pill Emperor consoled, causing Young Master Faus to nod ever so lightly.
“Ancestor is right. I thought she was good and allocated her resources from the bottom of my heart, wanting to make her my wife, but now that she wants out, I muse that she’s out of her mind, perhaps even lost her innocence, and is trying to hide it through her connection…”
“Obviously. Otherwise, that shitty brat wouldn’t be trying so hard to save her. It’s clear that she or they have an affair…”
“Yes, we must spread this matter to protect our Glorious Pill Palace so that it will become as though we managed to protect our reputation instead of losing it.”
“You get it. As expected of the next Palace Master.”
Young Master Faus and Venerated Twilight Pill Emperor exchanged soul transmissions with satisfaction in their voices.
‘What the… what a bunch of sleazy and devious bastards…’
Davis was flabbergasted as he heard their soul transmissions when he recognized their shared wavelength. With his current Soul Forging Cultivation, listening to these people speak through soul transmission without letting them know was child’s play to him. Nevertheless, knowing Dalila Leehan’s reputation was at stake, he didn’t lose his mind and kill them, which would only make rumors have more say as many would people would think they had an affair.
A deathly breeze that appeared greyish-black flew by the Venerated Twilight Pill Emperor’s side, causing him to look down, and when he saw what was happening, he found that one of his legs had been severed, blood spurting in copious amounts to the side and the surface before it fell.
“Emperor of Death! Stop this madness!”
The Venerated Twilight Pill Emperor screamed as he held his left thigh that had its remaining flesh severed and the Venerated Sunrise Pill Emperor’s face shook with fear. They looked like two helpless old men in front of a crazy murderer, fearing for their lives that it made Davis almost wonder if they’re doing this on purpose.
Abruptly, a golden-robed man appeared in between, his figure covered in resplendent golden light. He was so fast that people didn’t see him appearing until he stopped at one place. However, his presence instantly brought smiles to the faces of the Thousand Pill Palace and the Glorious Pill Palace people who thought they would be massacred.
They shouted, reacting as though they were going to pour their aggrieved complaints to him.
“Emperor of Death, you can’t do this…” The Starnova Emperor spoke in a solemn voice.
“Oh yeah?” Davis almost scoffed, “Then tell them that their soul transmission is effortless for me to hear.”
The Venerated Twilight Pill Emperor and Young Master Faus’s expression froze. Did the Emperor of Death actually hear their conversation!?
The Starnova Emperor appeared confused before he managed to catch the change of expressions in the two people in question. However, he narrowed his eyes, looking at Davis again.
“Even so, you should stop these barbarous actions of yours.”
Davis couldn’t help but scoff this time before he sent a soul transmission.
“Starnova, I know your new fiancee Farah Lanate put you up to this, and conveniently, I also know that you had an affair with her before marriage in her own Glorious Pill Palace. Shall I spread this matter?”
“…!” Hearing Davis’s words, the Starnova Emperor’s expression changed ever so lightly.
“See? And they tried to ruin Dalila Leehan’s reputation when she hadn’t done such a thing in truth. What do you think is worse? And what do you think you as her man would feel if this came out?”
Davis asked with a composed voice as though he had everything in control, but his words seemed to imply something else as he had his brows raised.
The Starnova Emperor wasn’t a fool. He instantly knew what the Emperor of Death demanded. Previously, he knew that he had been ignored even though he was part of the group that had an eye on Isabella, so he didn’t want to really offend the Emperor of Death anymore.
Moreover, he still couldn’t sense the other party’s true strength even though he was able to sense it before, and that could most possibly mean one thing!
Gritting his teeth, he turned to look at the single-legged Venerated Twilight Pill Emperor and spoke.
“Let go of this matter. It’s not worth the conflict. As for getting hurt, you only have yourself to blame.”
The Venerated Twilight Pill Emperor became stunned, and so did the others. How come the stance of the Starnova Emperor changed just like that?
The Glorious Pill Palace especially couldn’t help but wonder why.
They had only acted like this because they had got the favor of the Starnova Emperor and his entire Astral Light Sect behind them, but even he was abandoning them, unable to face the Emperor of Death?
“Little Faus, it seems that you also want to die. Perhaps, should I take away your ability to continue your legacy?”
Being stared down by the Starnova Emperor’s wrathful gaze, Young Master Faus appeared shaken. Wrath was visible in his eyes, but feeling the overwhelming prowess that could crush him to death in an instant, he lowered his head and moved his lips.
“We… I apologize for trying to slander Dalila Leehan.”
The Venerated Twilight Pill Emperor’s eyes widened, but he then lowered his head and looked away, knowing that they had been defeated with no way to make a comeback, especially with the Starnova Emperor suddenly changing sides.
The crowd was in utter bewilderment.
Was that apology because of the reason that they had truly talked bad about Dalila Leehan using soul transmission? Although the Venerated Twilight Pill Emperor didn’t seem to apologize, Young Master Faus seemed to apologize for that reason, making them feel disgusted.
Was all that act before a ruse then?
They couldn’t understand anymore, and many varying opinions began to circulate, making it for a chaotic atmosphere to be born in the New Era Battle Arena.
The Mandate Emperor couldn’t believe the mess these people actually made for a single woman. He had the urge to punish all of them, but what could he do when he was weaker? He could only punish the Thousand Pill Palace and Glorious Pill Palace for being a part of the ruckus to make it seem like he did something, but that would just display his weakness, not righteousness.
In this matter, he couldn’t decide who was wrong, but he felt that it was the Emperor of Death, at least until the next moment.
Davis looked at the scene and nodded at the Starnova Emperor with satisfaction.
“I agree to settle this matter with fifty Peak-Level Spirit Stone Vein Cores. However, if anyone tries to slander Dalila Leehan and ruin her reputation, I will have their heads regardless.”
The two Pill Emperor’s eyes almost fell out of their sockets, and even the Starnova Emperor appeared shaken.
“Wha- What did you say!?”
