Chapter 7 - 7 : Seeing A Beauty
"Oh?... And just why would I need a slave like you? Wouldn't it be even better for me if I just crush you right here and right now?" Long Chen said with his charming smile still on his face. His words scared Long Mantian even more.
"Please... please forgive me, young master Tian… I would never do it again." Long Mantian said, but by this time he already had tears in his eyes.
"Don't hurt me, Master Tian... it… it… it is against the clan rules to hurt a clan member, especially killing. Even if I am from a branch family, you'll still get punished if you do it," Long Mantian said as tears kept falling from his eyes.
"Tell me two things. Firstly, how would anyone know that it was I who killed you? We are all alone here right now. Secondly, I can't even kill a fly in the clan's eyes. I'm just a harmless little guy. No one would even think that I killed you," Long Chen stopped for a moment and then continued.
"And most importantly, you know even if I'm not a genius that I once was in my clan members' eyes, I'm still the grandson of the Patriarch. With my position, even if I kill you, do you think I would be killed? Are you really sure anything serious would happen to me?" Long Chen smirked as he said that.
'I might have said all that, but it is indeed true that killing him would attract quite a bit of unnecessary attention. That would hinder my plans.' Long Chen thought.
Long Mantian was scared out of his mind as Long Chen tightened his grip around his throat. After a brief moment, Long Chen closed the distance between him and Long Mantian. He bought his lips closer to Long Mantian's ears and spoke.
"If anyone found out that I'm better now and that I'm the one that beat you up. I do not think that I have to explain what could happen to you, do I? The clan might save you for a while, but not even the clan would be able to save you forever," Long Chen said with an innocent smile on his face.
As soon as Long Mantian saw this smile, he knew that now he was in the hands of a devil. He promised to himself in his mind that he would never do anything like this again and stay far away from him if he could survive.
"Although I don't need a servant right now, you were right in saying that you could be of use to me someday. I think so as well, but not right now. I will meet you on the day I need you. Till then act like you often do, but never cross me again." Long Chen said to him.
Long Mantian finally felt relieved and knew that he wouldn't die.
"I... I promise!" said Long Mantian said with tears in his eyes. After a moment, Long Chen finally put him down.
"Go on now, if anyone asks how you got hurt, I'm sure you'll think of some excuse like... you fell while walking," Long Chen said with a slight smile on his face.
This was the same excuse they gave every time Long Tian was injured in the slightest during their bullying.
After saying that, Long Chen started walking towards a different location. He was planning to roam every part of Long Mansion for once.
As Long Chen walked away, Long Mantian's eyes never left him until he was far away. Finally, he breathed a sigh of relief. He looked below and noticed that his pant was slightly wet... he then hurriedly ran towards his room.
As Long Chen was roaming around the mansion, he saw many incredible things. This place was huge and had many important places.
There was a Skill Hall in Long clan containing many Martial skills. When Long Tian was younger, he had personally gone there and seen many skills. Hundreds of mortal grade skills were there and quite a few Spirit grade skills as well, although Long Tian didn't have a chance to see them.
This building was golden in color, and it had four floors and covered an area of a few hundred square meters. Its door was around three meters wide and five meters high. There was also a dragon symbol on its doors, similar to most of the important places of the Long clan.
The first floor contained mortal grade skills. From low-rank mortal grade skills all the way up to the peak rank mortal grade skills, there were hundreds of them. While the second floor contained only Spirit grade Martial skills. Once someone broke through to Spirit refining realm, only then were they allowed to choose Martial skills from this floor.
If Long Tian had not suffered that horrible accident, he could have been the youngest person to go to the second floor and choose a Spirit grade Martial skill as he would have broken through to the Spirit refining realm soon. But everything changed after that accident.
As for the third floor, it was believed that it contained gold grade Martial skills. As for the fourth floor, No one other than the Patriarch and a few high-ranking elders was allowed inside. But it was said that this place contained highly sought after Earth grade techniques. Long Chan thought so as well. This could be the only possible explanation that made sense to him about what the fourth floor contained.
"It's not the right time to go inside, even if they allowed me to enter, I already have mortal grade skills from inside, and I wouldn't be allowed to go to the second floor as I have yet to break through to Spirit refining realm," Long Chen muttered to himself before deciding to walk past it.
He walked for a few minutes and saw the next big building.
The next place that made him amazed was also a huge building. It only had three floors, but it was even broader and more extensive than the skill Hall. It was called treasure Hall. There were many treasures inside for cultivators, especially weapons. It also contained many mortal weapons as well as Spirit treasures.
Long Chen did not know if it contained Earth grade weapon as well, as he had never heard about it. But he was sure that there must be Earth grade treasures in Long clan somewhere, looking at the Clan's strength.
Every clan member could choose a mortal grade treasure after they reached the 7th stage of the body refining realm, and they could select a Spirit grade weapon only when they reached the stage above the fifth stage of the Spirit Establishment stage.
Whether they would get a Low level, mid-level, high level, or peak level treasure depended on themselves. Which level treasure they would get was decided by a particular test inside the treasure Hall.
When Long Tian had first gone through this test, he was only seven years old and at the 7th stage of the body refining realm. After going through this test, he received a peak level mortal grade sword called "Mountain destroyer." Unfortunately, he did not have the habit of carrying it with him whenever he went outside, that's why he did not have it with him when a masked man attacked him
But even if he had it with him at that time, Long Chen knew that it would not have been of much help as his opponent was two cultivation realm higher than him and had a low-level Spirit grade knife.
Just as long Chen was about to pass by treasure Hall, a beautiful young girl was coming out from inside.
