I Have the Alchemy Emperor in My Head - Chapter 429
“A year from now, in the Death Arena, everyone will bear witness to us.” Jiang Lingxiao sneered, then turned around and left with Zhu Bumie.
The two of them were fast and soon pulled far away from the crowd.
“You were being too rash. I watched this year’s instructor competition. That kid is quite strong and has great potential. If something happens during the life-and-death duel, what are we to do?”
In the darkness of the night, the two of them stopped and Zhu Bumie questioned Jiang Lingxiao.
“So what if he has potential? Could he possibly reach the Innate Stage in a year? What a joke. If I don’t have this little bit of confidence, how can I command the countless students of Federation University?” Jiang Lingxiao said indifferently, “Besides, it’s because he threatened me that I agreed to the duel. If I kill him now, Jeang Yuanbin will not let the matter rest. But if I kill him in the life-and-death duel, Jeang Yuanbin will not be able to say sh*t.
“I know what that brat is thinking. He set the duel to take place a year from now. He’s trying to stop me from marrying Tang Siyu. But I too need a reason to kill him openly.”
Zhu Bumie nodded thoughtfully. “Since you’re prepared to do this, I won’t say any further. He’s just a small fry. He’s not worthy of your attention. You should seize the one year to train harder. Jeang Yuanbin relied on his strength to run amok in Federation University, ignoring the rules and regulations. If your strength can be compared to his, you would no longer have to be afraid of him.”
“Jeang Yuanbin is nothing. He just started cultivating a few years earlier than me. With time, I will reach his level. The difficult part will be nurturing divine abilities. When I’ve gained divine abilities, I will suppress him with my own two hands,” Jiang Lingxiao said with a cold smile.
“You’re right. Once Tang Siyu and you are wedded, that item will be within our grasp hands. Both of us will break through. Within Federation University, no one will dare oppose us. Even the chancellor will have to respect us! “Zhu Bumie thought of the scene where he had divine abilities. It was a scene where the thousands within Federation University were suppressed by one person. “However, Tang Tianluo seems to have sensed something amiss. He’s been probing at me. I think he suspects that we’re related to the death of his first daughter.”
“It doesn’t matter. So what if he suspects us? It’s all useless if he can’t get concrete evidence. Moreover, the Tangs’ situation is currently like a pot of boiling oil on a raging fire. Does he really have any other choice?” Jiang Lingxiao said in high spirits, “Just wait till I’ve developed divine abilities. That old coot will also eventually reach the end of his lifespan and fall. When the time comes, the Tangs will surely rely on me, their son-in-law. I will then find an opportunity to annex the whole Tang family in one fell swoop. When I gather the strength of the Jiang and Tang families, I’ll be one of the most powerful people in the Federation. I might even be able to compete for the position of president.”
“Before that, but what about Tang Siyu? If she gets mixed up with that brat, it will ruin your reputation,” Zhu Bumie reminded Jiang Lingxiao.
Jiang Lingxiao replied, “Now that I’ve already leaked the news here, we will not have to intervene anymore. The Tangs will never allow such a thing to happen. If it wasn’t for that item, as an illegitimate child, would she be worthy of marrying me?”
“However, Tang Tianluo isn’t stupid. I’m certain he suspects that we’re plotting against Tang Siyu’s mother’s family. They’re guarding them very closely. Even our people have no way of obtaining the item. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have to wait for another year,” Zhu Bumie said with a frown.
“If Tang Tianluo really knew about the magical effects of that item, he wouldn’t have remained at the same level for so many years. If I hadn’t read the ancient books and found out about it by accident, I wouldn’t have known either. If he wants to suspect us, let him. Anyway, a year from now, that item will fall into my hands. I’m just letting him hold on to it for me.” Jiang Lingxiao sneered.
“I’ve arranged everything. I’ll mobilize all the manpower and resources of our group to participate in the reconstruction of Verdant City. On one hand, I will be able to bolster my reputation. On the other, such a huge reconstruction project will undoubtedly bring huge benefits to our group,” Zhu Bumie said.
“Mm, Mr. Zhu, we will follow whatever arrangements you’ve made. I won’t interfere. During the battle earlier, I spotted the four ghosts of Overshade Mountain from the Monster Cult. They’ve massacred many. They must be hiding somewhere to digest the gains they’ve made this time and further enhance their evil arts. This is the right time to take their heads and strengthen my reputation,” Jiang Lingxiao said as he nodded, “A lot of people in the university are saying I relied on your name to become the president of the student council. If I don’t make a great contribution, how will I be able to quell this nonsense?”
“Although the four ghosts of Overshade Mountain are only at the peak of the Acquired Stage, they have a special joint attack formation that can match someone in the Innate Stage. However, they should be a big problem for you. It just so happens that there’s a bounty of one billion points on the heads of those four ghosts. That’s no amount to sneeze at,” Zhu Bumie said after some thought, “But the four ghosts have always been very careful and are good at concealing themselves. It won’t be easy to find them.”
“I left a tracker on them. They have yet to discover it. They will certainly perish today,” Jiang Lingxiao said confidently.
“All right, go one then. I’ll oversee things here.” Zhu Bumie nodded.
Jiang Lingxiao glanced at Zhu Bumie, turned around, and quickly disappeared into the night.
Back in Verdant City, after Jiang Lingxiao left, everyone saw that the matter was over and was no longer interested in watching. They all left to find a place to rest and replenish their energy after that exhausting battle.
With Jeang Yuanbin’s help, Chu Yunfan got into a treatment pod. Fortunately, his injuries were not very serious. In a short while, it was as if nothing had happened. With the addition of the Mighty Eternal Emperor Method and the Imperial Physique’s astonishing recovery ability, Chu Yunfan quickly recovered the blood in his cheeks.
At this moment, Tang Siyu and Jeang Yuanbin were the only ones left by his side.
“How could you be so stupid? Jiang Lingxiao is already in the Innate Stage. He’s clearly looking for an opportunity to kill you. And you went and suggested a life-and-death battle!” Tang Siyu’s beautiful eyes were filled with tears.
“Is there any other way?” Chu Yunfan grinned. “Jiang Lingxiao may be powerful, don’t underestimate me.”
Chu Yunfan’s eyes were filled with a look of resolution. To propose a life-and-death battle, of course, he was confident in himself. Jiang Lingxiao thought he was scheming against Chu Yunfan, but Chu Yunfan was also scheming against him.
