Long Live Summons! - Chapter 763
Sun Island, City Castle
The Lord Tu Hai, who had just woken up from an afternoon nap, felt that it was a little noisy outside.
He picked up his favorite sweet date tea and took a sip while asking the respectful butler at his side, Jiao Shi, if everything was alright.
“Master, there are two small things today,” Butler Jiao Shi pulled out a chair and helped City Lord Tu Hai to comfortably settle down. At the same time, he deftly laid the table while receiving the cup from his lord’s hand at the same time. Butler Jiao Shi continued to report that a powerful Heavenly Ranker had passed by in a flying car. He had passed over General Weng who was out hunting, annoyed, he had ordered his guards to drive away the strong expert above his head, and ended up being beaten.
“Is that so?” City Lord Tu Hai replied carelessly while he shook his head in an aloof manner. This useless Ah Weng who only knew how to enjoy life, if he wasn’t beaten up by somebody, it would seem he would’ve never acknowledged how weak he actually was. At least it would seem that this expert had chosen to give him some face, otherwise he would have directly wringed off Ah Weng’s dog head.
“Another interesting piece of news, in the Potential Alliance, a shop assistant who looked down on some foreigners had deliberately messed with them; and offered to sell them the shop’s treasure, the Gold Flying Dragon, at an extravagant price. However, that shop miscalculated. The foreigners could actually fork up that huge sum of money which caused a ruckus. The captain of the guard went to intervene, and because the Potential Alliance is General Weng’s shop, the captain of the guard was biased towards the Potential Alliance. As a result, his tongue was elongated and he was flown up into the sky as a human kite. This caused an uproar in the entire city and would be the cause of disturbance you heard earlier…” Butler Jiao Shi explained the general situation to the City Lord dutifully.
“An elongated tongue can allow one to be put into the sky to turn into a human kite?” City Lord Tu Hai was surprised.
Is this even possible?
It wasn’t as if City Lord Tu Hai hadn’t flown human kites before.
This glorious and special tradition was said to have begun 6,000 years ago during the Great War against the Tong Tian Tower’s army..
At that time, the armies of the Heavenly Realm had been utterly routed and In order to vent their anger, they executed the captives of the Tong Tian Tower’s army by various means.
The process of flying a human kite was usually like this: a captured enemy would be brought to a steep and high cliff, the steeper the better. Then the belly of the unlucky guy would be cut open and his innards disemboweled. The tormentor would then throw the captive down the cliff and fly off into the distance; pulling the captive by his innards behind him. This would force the still-alive captive to use up all his remaining energy to float and chase after his tormentor in order to reduce the pain.
Some of the tormentors with particularly good control could fly a human kite with an enemy chasing after them in mid-air for more than an hour.
Such a cruel human kite is also one of the top ten tortures in the Western Sky.
Maybe the mercenaries were not afraid of death, but they were terribly afraid of the pain from this torture.
For CIty Lord Tu Hai, he has flown such a kite many times to a point that he’ already grown tired of them. However he had never before heard of flying a human kite by elongating their tongue and thus his interest was piqued.
Butler Jiao Shi immediately replied, “That unlucky guard captain came from a tribe of chameleons. Their tongues can elongate up to several times the length of their bodies. Although I did not see it with my own eyes, the people below reported that the unlucky guy first had his tongue stretched, before a large amount of gas was pumped into his throat. Allowing his stomach to expand to become a ball. Finally, when the body started to float, a rope was tied to his neck and he was flown into the sky. The other guards were then forced to take the rope and ran rampant up and down the street.”
“How interesting!”, City Lord Tu Hai started clapping his hands in joy.
Then, falling into thought, City Lord Tu Hai suddenly exclaimed. “We should try it too! Lets find a chameleon tribe prisoner and use the same method to fly a human ball kite. Then tie it on the north wall of the city. As a warning to the little insects so they can see what exactly happens if they offend me.”
The butler, Jiao Shi, immediately bowed ninety degrees, and answered courteously. “As you wish, my beloved master of the city.”
Lord Tu Hai thought for a moment about it and asked, “Do you have any way to invite the Heavenly Ranker to come and talk to me?”
As for making friends with Heavenly Ranked experts, Lord Tu Hai thought the more the merrier
It’s never too much.
City Lord Tu Hai was never stingy when it came to matters that could be achieved with finances.
With his strength of a peak Heavenly Rank Four, he had always been denied entry to the Upper Heavenly Realm. Lord Tu Hai felt that he lacked not only strength, but also the substance… More than once, he saw Heavenly Rankers with strength below his, being allowed to enter the Upper Heavenly Realm. Not to mention those disciples of major sects with high potential, more often than not even before reaching the Heavenly Rank, or even the quasi-Heavenly Rank. They would borrow their elder’s influence and enter the Upper Heavenly Realm that he dreamed of entering but could not enter.
The younger City Lord Tu Hai couldn’t understand why and always felt that it was unfair.
Only after Lord Ling Yun’s reminder did a sudden enlightenment dawn on him.
Although Tu Hai was the City Lord of Rizhao City which acted as the doorkeepers for the Upper Heavenly Realm while also possessing strength of the Heavenly Rank Four. Was far more than other CIty Lords, wanting to enter the Upper Heavenly Realm without any background or support was still impossible.
Even Lord Ling Yun can’t bring his men into the heavenly realm… However he has given the Lord of Tu Hai hope.
As long as they can get the support of 300 Heavenly Ranked experts, then City Lord Tu Hai will be eligible for the nomination.
In order to obtain this qualification, Lord Tu Hai had worked hard for two hundred years and found one hundred and thirty-seven Heavenly Rank experts to support him. During this period the amount of his finances spent to achieve his goal was beyond imagination. Even though there were many Heavenly Rankers around City Lord Tu Hai. Although there were none he hadn’t tried pulling into his camp before. Unfortunately not every Heavenly Ranker was willing to support Tu Hai. In the same situation as the City Lord Tu Hai, the City Lord’s of Golden Wheel City, Wishing Light City and Wisdom City etc. Were also active in recruiting Heavenly Rankers in order to reach the same goal. Up till this day not one of them had succeeded in getting the support of 300 Heavenly Rank Experts!
Now for City Lord Tu Hai, he would even try to solicit those Heavenly Rankers passing by and try to befriend them in order to get them to support him.
It’s been half a year since any Heavenly Rankers passed through Rizhao City.
Finally today another Heavenly Ranker had passed by his city, even though this Heavenly Ranker had beaten up his cousin, he couldn’t care about that fact in the least.
Jiao Shi the butler shook his head while sighing. “General Weng has first offended the other party not to mention the captain of the patrol guard and the Potential Alliance also tried to cheat and bully him. This Heavenly Rankers impression of us isn’t very good at the moment. In fact, the outsiders that the shop assistants tried to cheat were this Heavenly Ranker’s subordinates. Moreover the captain of the patrol guard was turned into a human kite under the orders of the masked man and was flown in the sky. He’s still hanging from a flagpole right now!”
“Damn.” City Lord TuHai was annoyed and slapped the table out of frustration, his favorite sweet date tea spilled all over.
With his usual temper, he’s going to be furious.
If he didn’t kill a hundred people, the depression in his heart won’t come down.
However, three months ago, Lord Ling Yun had summoned CIty Lord Tu Hai to criticize him for being too bloodthirsty and murderous. After receiving the warning from Lord Ling Yun, Lord Tu Hai changed his usual murderous ways and wanted to rebrand his reputation.
After agonizing over this issue for a while and thinking how to change this Heavenly Ranker’s impression of him, he finally exclaimed. “If this expert is willing to support me, even if I have to destroy the Potential Alliance to appease him the benefits would be worth it. Even more so, for a Heavenly Ranker like him. It would have been easy for him to completely destroy that shop in rage however he had not done so. The only cons were that he flew a few human kites, this is to show that he is a forgiving person! Go, bring some gifts and invite him to my castle. If he is willing to come and meet me, I will be waiting to receive him here with a banquet!”
The butler, JiaoShi, immediately bowed his head and went off to fulfill his master’s wishes…
Before leaving, he once again cautiously reminded his master that near one of the major cities in the Ling Yun country, there were also the remnants of the Tong Tian Tower Army. Passing through although six thousand years have indeed passed. But those insects still haven’t given up yet and are still trying to find a way to open the doors to the Celestial Realm.
Rizhao’s City Lord waved his hand saying. “Rest assured, those remaining incests no matter how rampant; they dare not come to our Rizhao City. This sun island has the Heaven Rank Great Formation even the great leader Night Light was besieged and killed here. His loyal subordinates were slaughtered one after the other. Since then, the remnants of Tong Tian Tower have never been able to recover their strength. I’m afraid they don’t even have any Heavenly Rankers anymore, each of their generations are becoming worse and worse… Thousands of years ago, their strength was so powerful that they could conquer several cities in a row on a whim, but thousands of years have passed. Their powerful Heavenly Rankers have all died out, and their remnants are all ants, we should no longer be afraid of them.”
“Yes, I was too worried and thought too much,” Butler Jiao Shi bowed and replied to his lord’s explanation.
“You’re right to be concerned however, indeed we have to monitor the remaining rebels, but with the Sun Island, not to mention their strength right now… Even if they had the might of the Heavenly Rankers from 6,000 years ago,they would not be able to take this city. Do you know how many Heavenly Ranked rebels are imprisoned under our feet? Nearly a hundred, even with just the leaders of the past generations, there are 20 to 30 of them…” City Lord Tu Hai laughed at those numbers
Everyone out there thinks Sun Island is the city’s main residence.
In fact, this is a prison with great sealing power, with the nodes sealed by the giants of the heavenly realms. Even if they were Heavenly Rank experts, they would not be able to escape from this place. The Rizhao prison in the north of the city is nothing more than a farce. The powerful Heavenly Rankers can’t be locked up in a simple iron barred cell. At most it can only lock up the lazy miners and the random hooligans who like to steal from the city.
The butler Jiao Shi bowed deeply, even though City Lord Tu Hai did not see it, when Jiao Shi bowed his head, his eyes emitted a weird glow!
But before City Lord TuHai could notice the random anomaly, the glow faded away very quickly.
His gaze turned back Into one filled with respect, reverence and adoration.
Half an hour later.
Butler Jiao Shi came back to report his results.
For City Lord Tu Hai, who was hell-bent on entering the Upper Heavenly Realm, this was good news, because the Heavenly Rank expert who beat up General Weng. Who turned the captain of the patrol guards into a human kite; had accepted the CIty Lord’s apology and invitation to a banquet.
Per courtesy, the powerful man asked the butler to bring back an excellent red coral stone for City Lord Tu Hai.
This type of stone could only be found in the Upper Heavenly Realm.
It’s a precious gem that you can’t buy here in Rizhao City.
When City Lord Tu Hai saw this stone, he jumped in his heart, could it be that this man has been to the Upper Heavenly Realm before? At the very least, this Heavenly Ranker is not of simple origins, amongst his master, relatives or friends. There should be some who have been to the Upper Heavenly Realm. Otherwise he would not have such a precious item such as the red coral stone, and would not give it away at random.
What is the strength of that Heavenly Rank expert? City Lord Tu Hai felt that he should receive this Heavenly Rank expert carefully and try his best to pull him into his camp… Of course he would first have to catch hold of his weaknesses.
“I could not see through his strength… The first time I saw him, I didn’t even feel that he was a Heavenly Rank expert. But even those of quasi-Heavenly Rank strength feel like ants in front of him. He wears a unique platinum mask, comparable to a saintly treasure, I have never seen a platinum treasure with such spirituality and power… This treasure is a treasure that is rarely possessed even among the Heavenly Rankers from the Upper Heavenly Realm. On the hand of this expert is a glove, although I am not sure, I think it is a Heaven Scorpio Glove of an Earth Divine Artifact rank. They are treasures hard to come by amongst experts of the Upper Heavenly Realm. As for his strength, please forgive my incompetence for being unable to identify his strength.” Jiao Shi gave his report of the masked expert.
“Really?” Tu Hai was very excited to hear this. If this Heavenly Ranker had really come from the Upper Heavenly Realm, then it would be extremely lucky if he could pull him into his camp.
The City Lord slapped the table in excitement. “Quick invite him to the castle, I will personally go to the castle gates to receive him!”
