Shadow Hack Chapter 830
"Since everyone here is clear about what the other party is thinking, I won't keep speaking in a roundabout way. I extremely abhor Aschen. He is only a branch family descendant, so how can I accept him being on the same level as me?"
A smile appeared on Ashbi's round face, which resembled that of Buddha, but his tone was filled with viciousness.
He was the direct descendant created by god father, so he naturally treated the matters of seniority as extremely irritating. Chen Xiu deliberately using the matter of Ancient God Lakshmi to attract god father's attention put him in a bad mood.
When did a branch family descendant become so brazen that he dared to lie to god father and the city lord? He even retorted against Ashbi again and again in front of god father, causing him to feel increasingly more hateful.
Jiao Xiu understood it, and he looked at Ashbi while saying with a smil,e"When that youngster became god father's sixth son, I hadn't thought that he had the ability. I thought that the city lord wanted to have another younger brother."
"Hmph!" Ashbi picked up his teacup and took a sip. "A bastard with impure bloodline wants to stand on the same footing as me. If it were not for god father treating him as important, I would've killed him long ago."
God father treating Chen Xiu as important was not a good news.
Jiao Xiu picked up a cup of tea made by the maid and took a sip, savouring it. While reflecting on the taste of tea, he put down the tea cup and said to Ashbi, "God father treating him as important means that Chen Xiu really cannot be touched. But I don't know what god father is thinking, surprisingly recognizing a branch disciple as his son."
Ashbi smiled after hearing him. His little eyes looked all around before he said softly, "God father has already become discontent with me. The reason why he recognized Chen Xiu as his son was in order to change the situation of Asura City."
God father was discontent and wanted to change Asura City...
The hand with which Jiao Xiu held the tea cup trembled slightly. His expression tightened, and he said in a whisper, "You mean that god father wants to use Chen Xiu's hand to pull out the four great clans from the roots?"
Ashbi nodded without saying anything.
Ever since god father descended to the mortal world after residing in the divine palace for a long time, he had observed the peculiarity of Asura City. It spread over the territories under the control of god father, and the power of belief from all mortals was supplied to god father which he then distributed among the city lord's mansion and the four great clans.
Back in the day, the majority of power of belief was in god father's hand. But as long as a god kept the power of belief stored in their body for a long time, it would be tantamount to fusing with it, but an extremely huge amount was required for him to increase his cultivation. Because of that, god father supplied some of the power of belief to the four clans including the city lord so their cultivation would rise to that of late stage god.
After many years, all of them had become late stage gods.
As for advancing to ancient god status, the ancestors of the four great clans and the city lord had secretly changed the image of the god provided to the mortals of the regions administered by them to their images. In that way, the power of belief which was supposed to belong to god father began to come to them.
Previously, when god father was in the divine palace, he did not care about matters of the mortal world. Even if the five main ancestors secretly stole a portion of the power of belief, god father would not discover it. But after being defeated in the battle, god father came to the mortal world without the slightest sign, catching the five ancestors unprepared.
Without the time to conceal the stolen power of belief, each day was like walking on ice for Ashbi and the four great clans. They were afraid that if they were even the slightest bit careless, they would be discovered by god father.
Originally, they believed that they had concealed it properly. But god father had adopted Chen Xiu who had an impure bloodline as his son and even raised his cultivation to god level. He also said a few words to Ashbi, clearly warning him and the four great clans.
First, he said that Asura City had changed, pointing toward the matter of stolen power of belief. Only he did not say it directly. Second, he raised Chen Xiu's cultivation to god level. It was to warn Ashbi and the other four clans that he could take everything back from them.
After noticing the meaning behind god father's words, Ashbi understood that god father had sensed everything.
At that moment, there were only two paths in front of him and the others. The first path was to obediently hand over the stolen power of belief and accept punishment. The second path was to continue hiding it, since the power of belief stolen over the years was sufficient to raise five gods to the level of ancient gods.
Ashbi thought it over and found that he could only choose the second path. If he walked the first path, then even if he wasn't killed, he would be crippled. Although the second path was dangerous, they would take a huge leap and become ancient gods if they succeeded.
Lanlou only had seven ancient gods. So even if they stood at the peak in terms of strength, if the five ancestors became ancient gods and joined together, they could occupy some territory.
"I opened my door to welcome you in order to discuss about killing that bastard Chen Xiu. God father raised his cultivation to god level and also made him ancestor to make use of him and enquire about the stolen power of belief," Ashbi softly said with his heart filled with both excitement and panic.
The hand holding the tea cup trembled slightly. "You should know that if this matter is investigated by Chen Xiu, the four great clans as well as me will be purged. Therefore, I will hand Chen Xiu over to you."
Jiao Xiu looked at Ashbi then said while contemplating the matter, "Leave him to me then. I will return and discuss this matter with the patriarchs of the other three clans. We need you to pull god father's attention. Then once we get an opportunity, we will kill Chen Xiu."
"Deal," Ashbi said with a smile. He then raised the tea cup and took a sip
If it was asked what was the most chaotic place in Asura City, then colosseum in middle city would be the obvious answer. Compared to upper city's coldness and lower city's poverty and despair, the middle city was extremely bustling and possessed the most entertaining area.
It could be said that middle city's industry was created by the branch family descendants of the four great clans and were under them. Many disciples of the four great clans ran over to the colosseum to have a bit of fun, while the poor people of lower city came to battle with beasts to survive.
It was not Chen Xiu's first time coming to the colosseum. Once he entered, he found Li Yunmu and Brunhilda casually reclining against the railing. Both of them were looking at the people fighting below with interest.
In the sealed stage underneath, a poor person adorned in shabby clothes was holding a large machete and confronting an enormous beast. It had three heads and was covered in feathers from top to bottom like a bird. Its eyes were glinting under the sunlight.
The bird beast's three heads and six eyes were focused upon the ant in front of it.
The creature howled loudly and released three rays of energy toward the poor person. Upon seeing it, the competitor rolled to the side and dodged the attack.
After that, the participant found an opportunity and chopped off one of the three heads with his large blade. The attack was enough to stun the bird, and with blood flowing down its open neck, it toppled to the ground, dead.
