Master of Science and Technology - Chapter 63
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
In an unsuspecting area not far from where the students of the Five Sects congregated, a golden python appeared from a hole in the ground. It was Goldie: who had just swallowed Zhou Ming whole.
Nearing Ye Zan, Goldie lowered her head and asked for pets. Ye Zan was helpless, and could only brush her nose; earning an immediate burst of delight from Goldie.
Really Ye Zan had many ways of defeating Zhou Ming. Even a laser from the drones was enough to demolish him. However, from the messages Kong Qingyun had sent, Ye Zan had learned that Zhou Ming had a Hundred Treasure Space with him; possibly holding many treasures.
If he immediately got rid of Zhou Ming, then the problem of this Hundred Treasure Space would exist. After all, in front of so many people, was he supposed to split it equally among them? Or was he supposed to say that these were the war goods of the Yu Qing Sect and that the all-powerful mysterious light that had struck from the sky had been his work? Thus, he had used Goldie.
The tunnel had been dug by robots, as Goldie was a giant python, not a giant worm. She didn’t have digging abilities. Under the directions of scanning drones, the robots had silently drilled a hole leading right under Zhou Ming’s feet. After this, Goldie appeared to swallow him. With her skill, he would be unable to escape whether or not he noticed her presence.
Thus, all of the students would see that Zhou Ming had been swallowed by a python, never being able to suspect Yu Qing for such an event. Naturally, the possessions Zhou Ming had would also be abandoned, as who would dare fight with such a beast for them?
After being petted, Goldie backed up, her eyes full of unmasked pleasure. With the opening of her mouth, she spits out a person, his body landing before Ye Zan. It was Zhou Ming. He wasn’t dead, just wet and disoriented, unaware of his surroundings.
Regardless of who it was, his opponent was still a Foundation State Master. Ye Zan naturally wouldn’t come without preparation. After Zhou Ming had been spit out by Goldie, he had come face to face with two nets.
These nets were unbreakable by even the Bronze Terracotta Soldiers, not to mention a meager Zhou Ming.
After being captured, Zhou Ming regained some consciousness, looking from beneath the nets to Ye Zan, aggressively saying: “Who are you? How do you dare treat me like this? Don’t you know that I am the Master of this Realm?
Ye Zan chuckled, saying:
”Have you not understood the situation you are in? It would take just a sword for me to kill you right now.”
Zhou Ming struggled beneath the net and found that it was far stronger than he had imagined.
However, his hand could still move.
Thus, he immediately moved his hands in a sword technique, calling his flying sword. Unfortunately, his flying sword was only a magical weapon. It had not been connected to his spiritual consciousness.
After being taken by Kong Qingyun and the rest of the group, it had long lost connection with him.
However, Zhou Ming remained unabashed, his hands moving to form a technique, his lips muttering a spell. With his movement, his surroundings changed immediately in spiritual energy. A lightning bolt the thickness of a pinky appeared from thin air, moving directly for Ye Zan.
“Heh, you can work spells.” Ye Zan chuckled and intercepted that blow. With a crackle, the lightning dissipated in his palms, leaving not the slightest impact behind.
Zhou Ming was a little shocked. This was his strongest spell. Although it wasn’t as sharp as the flying sword, this single blow was still powerful enough on its own. Even the strongest beast, not to mention a puny human, could survive a hit without feeling the aftereffects for at least half a day.
But, the person before him had not only not dodged but had also used his hands to intercept that blow. He had even remained unharmed.
This was unimaginable.
“You tased me. The least I could do is return the gift.”
Ye Zan swiped his arm, the electric sword moving in his hand, and extending with a sparkling crackle. He flipped the switch, and at the tip of the electric sword emerged a blue light and a snap.
“Wai, wait a second….” Before the electric sword could hit his body, Zhou Ming was frightened into surrender.
However, Ye Zan was not merciful, his electric sword moving past the webs of holes, and striking Zhou Ming’s body.
The forest was immediately filled with Zhou Ming’s pained cries.
“Don’t yell so terribly. This is just an appetizer. You killed two of our people. Although they were only Secular Warriors, they were still part of the Yu Qing Sect. These two people, each had fathers, mothers, and wives. They could have led a pleasant and fulfilling life, but were murdered by your recklessness.” Ye Zan moved his electric sword, coldly speaking to the bawling Zhou Ming.
Ye Zan wasn’t some Saint Maria. He wasn’t unwilling to see blood. However, the Secular Warrior had died because of their recklessness, their unattentiveness, or because they were unwilling to preserve their lives over the treasures and died of their own accord in here, then that was their problem. They couldn’t blame anyone else. But, they hadn’t died because of these problems, but because of Zhou Ming. Thus, their death was seen in vain.
“Yu Qing Sect, you are the Ye Zan they were talking about!” Zhou Ming had finally reacted. Hearing Ye Zan’s words, he had finally known his identity.
When Zhou Ming had gone to find the Yu Qing Sect, the students of the Jin Guang Sect had frequently spoken to him of this young Yu Qing member of high generational rank. Of course, he was still unabashed. High generational rank didn’t equate to high skill. If his opponent was still a Refining State cultivator, then he himself as a Foundation State Master could easily settle him. But who could have predicted that he would fall at the hands of Ye Zan?
“Keke, I knew that they would speak of me with you,” Ye Zan was not surprised in the least by this information. He had caused them to lose much in assets. If they had suddenly acquired the assistance of a Master, they would naturally come for him. However, it was not time to settle things with these people yet. Yu Qing was still weak. Some things could only be left for the future.
“Yes, yes, I was only listening to what they had said. They also told me to come kill you. The information about Yu Qing having two girl cultivators also came from them.” He had only been tased once, yet was already showing his lack of backbone with his betrayal of the Two Sects. Of course, he had also held motives of trying to stir up conflict.
However, Ye Zan didn’t fall for his tricks, saying:
”Fine, I’m not interested in their problems. I have enough time in the future to settle things with them. For now, let’s talk about you.”
“What, what about me?” Zhou Ming asked.
“Take out everything in this Hundred Treasure Space, and you can be pardoned from some suffering. Otherwise, you can have the opportunity of experiencing what it means when I say “living is worse than death”.
Ye Zan hadn’t killed Zhou Ming because he needed a Foundation State cultivator to open the Hundred Treasure Space and retrieve its contents. The Hundred Treasure Space had Wu Zhu Sect’s crest. That was no ordinary design. The Wu Zhu Sect could use this crest and trace the location of this Space.
Although his dimension could pursue it, Ye Zan was still unwilling to put unknown substances into his dimension.
