Chapter 1043 – Hall of Gods
Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss froze as he looked at the scene. The content of this image was a meeting from when the forces that supported the Thirteenth Prince discussed how to deal with Zhao Feng.
The people that appeared were all representatives of the forces that supported the Thirteenth Prince. Even the black-armored Sacred Lord from Nine Darkness Palace was present. How did Zhao Feng have this?
Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss was puzzled.
Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss sensed something after the shock passed. A powerful Demonic Dao aura was contained within the cold light that shot out of Zhao Feng’s armguard. From this aura alone, Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss could confirm that the owner of this aura was someone that cultivated the secret technique of Nine Darkness Palace.
Was there a spy in Nine Darkness Palace? Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss’ expression was extremely grim. No wonder the assassination attempt failed.
Zhao Feng shouldn’t have been able to escape from three Sacred Lords and the Evil Death Yin Spirit Array.
“Zhao Feng, hand that person over!”
Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss had a cold gaze as he circulated his Mystic Light Sacred Power and was about to unleash his power. In the scene, the forces were only discussing how to deal with Zhao Feng. None of them mentioned the Crown Prince. However, it would be horrible if the spy had evidence of Nine Darkness Palace planning to do something to the Crown Prince.
Zhao Feng’s calmness made Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss feel uneasy.
“Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss, the participants of the assassination all seem to come from forces that support the Thirteenth Prince!”
Zhao Feng didn’t bother with Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss and spoke in a slightly threatening tone.
“Hmph, this is a personal issue of Nine Darkness Palace. Nine Darkness Palace simply recruited those forces!” Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss explained.
As long as it wasn’t related to the imperials, Nine Darkness Palace wasn’t scared of anything in the continent zone.
“Since you admit that everything was planned by Nine Darkness Palace, then this matter can’t just end here!” Zhao Feng revealed a smile.
“Hahaha! You don’t have the right to negotiate with me!” Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss laughed.
Zhao Feng’s tone made it seem like he was negotiating with Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss suggesting that he wanted compensation for the assassination.
“Furthermore, I’ll be saying this one last time; hand that person over!”
Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss had a cold expression as killing intent spread. From the scene just now, he could tell that the spy of Nine Darkness Palace was in Zhao Feng’s Misty Spatial World right now. If Zhao Feng wasn’t willing to hand over the Misty Spatial World, then he would just have to steal it away or kill Zhao Feng.
The atmosphere within the hall was as tense as night.
“Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss, does Nine Darkness Palace really think that I used the last God Slaying Arrow?” Zhao Feng asked Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss in a cold tone, causing the latter to pause.
According to their intel and analysis, the upper echelons of many forces guessed that Zhao Feng had used the God Slaying Arrow. However, no one actually saw it, so no one could prove that was the case.
“You couldn’t have defeated Sacred Lord Myriad Forms with your own strength!”
Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss didn’t reply to what Zhao Feng asked. Sacred Lord Myriad Forms was a non-human Sacred Lord with the Eyes of Myriad Forms. His true strength could allow him to fight against Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss, who was at the late stages of the Mystic Light Realm.
“Then how about you give it a try!” Zhao Feng laughed wickedly.
The hall became dead-silent. If Zhao Feng hadn’t warned him, Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss would have taken action already, but Zhao Feng mentioned the God Slaying Arrow. Although Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss didn’t believe that Zhao Feng still had it, he didn’t want to risk his own life over it.
It had taken him a long time to reach the late stages of the Mystic Light Realm, and he even had hopes of touching the domain of Gods. Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss didn’t want to joke around with his life.
“Zhao Feng, you won’t be able to live very long after becoming Nine Darkness Palace’s enemy.”
Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss disappeared the very next instant and only left behind a voice ringing across the entire Ocean Smoke Pavilion branch.
The black-armored Sacred Lord was sweating coldly for Zhao Feng within the Misty Spatial World.
“Master, do you really have a God Slaying Arrow?” the black-armored Sacred Lord asked. He was curious as well.
“Yes!” Zhao Feng didn’t hide anything.
“Nine Darkness Palace shouldn’t chase after Master for a while. If Master can quickly become a Sacred Lord, you’ll have a better chance against Nine Darkness Palace!” the black-armored Sacred Lord suggested.
He believed that Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss would soon find out he was the traitor after going back and checking. After all, not many people from Nine Darkness Palace had participated in the assassination, and he hadn’t returned since.
“Hmph, I’ll be causing trouble for Nine Darkness Palace right now!”
Zhao Feng’s eyes focused. The Ocean Smoke Pavilion wasn’t a weak two-star force anymore. The Ocean Smoke Pavilion now included the Ten Thousand Sacred Clan, the Ghost Fire Clan, and the underground assassination organization created by Supreme Emperor Dark Night. To a certain degree, all the other forces around the ocean were controlled by the Ocean Smoke Pavilion.
Adding on the fact that Zhao Feng supplied them with countless resources and that they had the protection of draconic providence, the Ocean Smoke Pavilion managed to expand very quickly, and they were almost into the continent zone proper.
The main headquarters of the Ocean Smoke Pavilion had moved to the continent; it was set in Yu Province where the Ji Family was based. The oceans around the Ocean Smoke Pavilion’s previous location and around the Ten Thousand Sacred Clan had become theirs; the Ocean Smoke Pavilion was now considered one of the big forces in the continent zone.
Bi Qingyue and Supreme Emperor Dark Night arrived several dozen days later while Old Monster Xu remained in Yu Province.
“I didn’t think that Master would arrive so quickly and finish all our problems!”
Bi Qingyue revealed a guilty expression. Zhao Feng created this force because he wanted an organization to work for him, but Zhao Feng was constantly spending a lot of resources and wealth, and yet his force was just baggage. Zhao Feng constantly needed to save them every time.
“Master, our assassination organization is starting to become more famous. It’s called the Silence Assassination Division.” Supreme Emperor Dark Night reported the situation of the assassination organization to Zhao Feng.
It was really easy to expand the assassination organization with the Ocean Smoke Pavilion as the intel headquarters. With the direction of professional assassins and the wealth that Zhao Feng had given them, the Silence Assassination Division stood out from the others.
Bi Qingyue then told Zhao Feng about the recent expansion progress of the Ocean Smoke Pavilion and their future goals.
“Not bad!” Zhao Feng said after listening carefully.
The Ocean Smoke Pavilion only became famous due to the Crown Prince trial, and they started to rapidly expand while everyone else was attracted by the war between the two lord dynasties.
What Bi Qingyue said was more specific than the green-robed elder from before.
“From now on, this force will be called the Hall of Gods!” Zhao Feng said after thinking for a while.
His goal of setting up a force was to spread it across the world and make it a superpower that ruled the universe for eternity.
Bi Qingyue and Supreme Emperor Dark Night could feel how ambitious Zhao Feng was from this name alone. The forces they were in charge of were too chaotic; they indeed needed an overall name or management team.
“Bi Qingyue, the Hall Master will still be you!”
Zhao Feng was satisfied by Bi Qingyue’s display.
Bi Qingyue’s heart shook. She didn’t expect Zhao Feng to put so much trust in her. He was putting his lifelong goal on her shoulders. Bi Qingyue was extremely moved by this and was willing to serve Zhao Feng with all her ability.
“Black-armored Sacred Lord, you will become an assassin from now on and help expand the Silence Assassination Division!” Zhao Feng waved his left hand, and a muscular male with black scaly skin appeared.
The hearts of Bi Qingyue and Supreme Emperor Dark Night shook. In fact, they knew this Sacred Lord; this Sacred Lord was the black-armored Sacred Lord from Nine Darkness Palace. His battle-power was very likely even stronger than Supreme Emperor Dark Night.
They didn’t expect their master to be able to control even a Sacred Lord from Nine Darkness Palace. The Hall of Gods would only become stronger and stronger!
“Thank you, Master!” Supreme Emperor Dark Night said. Although the assassination organization was expanding rapidly, they needed peak-tier experts to rise.
“Your next task will be even more difficult!”
Zhao Feng looked into the distance. The force he wanted was just about formed, but it couldn’t focus only on expanding in order to achieve Zhao Feng’s goal.
The rise of a powerful force would mean the fall of another.
“Master, please tell us!” the three within the hall said at the same time.
They could feel that Zhao Feng was playing a very big game of chess, and they could faintly guess Zhao Feng’s aim.
“This is your reward for years of hard work.”
Zhao Feng threw over two interspatial rings. Supreme Emperor Dark Night and Bi Qingyue were both extremely talented, so Zhao Feng would make them stronger. The black-armored Sacred Lord only just joined Zhao Feng’s team and hadn’t done much, so there was no reward for him.
“Thank you, Master!”
Bi Qingyue and Supreme Emperor Dark Night bowed once more.
There was only one thing within Bi Qingyue’s interspatial ring, but it made her extremely excited. It was a portion of Hundred Origin Sacred Honey a treasure that could increase one’s chances of breaking through to the Mystic Light Realm.
Zhao Feng gave Supreme Emperor Dark Night some peak Wicked Path cultivation techniques and resources.
The black-armored Sacred Lord felt curious as to what Zhao Feng gave them to have such joyful and excited expressions on their faces.
“Bi Qingyue, we need to start gathering intel on Nine Darkness Palace.”
In order to deal with Nine Darkness Palace, they needed to pay attention to it and understand more about them.
Bi Qingyue then left and headed back toward Yu Province.
“Supreme Emperor Dark Night, your task is even more important than Bi Qingyue’s!”
Zhao Feng revealed a faint smile and then started to talk to Supreme Emperor Dark Night in private.
In order to expand the Silence Assassination Division, one needed powerful assassins and plenty of fame. The Hall of Gods was enough to be the shield behind the Silence Assassination Division. Now they just needed fame.
“I want you to start stealing customers from Black Screen Corner!” Zhao Feng told him what he was thinking.
Being one of the three biggest underworld organizations, Black Screen Corner was also the strongest assassination organization in the continent.
Supreme Emperor Dark Night jumped up in fright at what Zhao Feng said. Luckily, it was just to pull customers over and not to offend Black Screen Corner itself. Being a former member of Black Screen Corner, he knew how terrifying it was.
“Then the target?”
Supreme Emperor Dark Night could guess what Zhao Feng was thinking. The only business they could steal was assassinations.
The Silence Assassination Division’s goal was obviously to kill those from Nine Darkness Palace and other related forces. Being Nine Darkness Palace’s enemy, Zhao Feng needed to strengthen himself while weakening Nine Darkness Palace at the same time.
Zhao Feng told Supreme Emperor Dark Night the plan.
“I will set many anonymous and expensive missions in the Silence Assassination Division and set the same mission in Black Screen Corner in order to attract their attention.”
Since they were stealing business, the rewards from these assassinations had to be plentiful enough to attract most experts.
Zhao Feng had already thought of a perfect idea.
