The Strongest Dan God Chapter 173 – The Fox Exploits the Tiger’s Might!
Translated by: Andy
Should have free time this weekend to translate more after I finish up one of my projects. Can finally come through for real :'( It’s getting colder on campus so there are less things that I have to do now.
The Overhanging Wind Cliff. The Blazing Eagle’s dwellings.
The mountain path that the two groups walked on is very steep with many twists and turns. In order to reach the Blazing Eagle’s nest, they must go through this path.
One the way, Rong Fan was very happy. For second generation nobles like him, they loved having absolute strength.
Now that his group had teamed up with the Xiao clan team, this made him look forward to the hunt this time. He was feeling confident.
“We’re still not there? I can’t wait anymore!”
Xiao Mu on the other hand was feeling a little uneasy.
“Little Mu, you haven’t said a word since the beginning. Is something bothering you?” Xiao Mu’s older brother, Xiao Ying looked worriedly at him. He couldn’t help but speak up.
Even though Xiao Ying was in the 9th stage of qi refining, he was all brawn and no brain. When it comes to decision making, he would always ask Xiao Mu for advice.
“Big bro, I feel like something’s wrong. That Rong Fan is pretty stupid and his underlings aren’t much better either. How can they find the Blazing Eagle’s nest so quickly?”
“This…Maybe you’re underestimating their abilities.” Xiao Ying smiled. He felt that his little brother was being a bit too sensitive.
“I hope that’s that case.” Xiao Mu sighed, “I really want to finish up this second mission quickly and teach Ye Zifeng a lesson during the third mission!”
In the group of people that tried to bully Ye Zifeng, Xiao Mu is the only one that haven’t received Ye Zifeng’s divine punishment. He doesn’t know how scary Ye Zifeng can be and is still trying to get revenge.
Liu Yige saw the look on Xiao Mu’s face and thought about himself. He couldn’t help but open his mouth.
“I suggest that you don’t do what’s unnecessary.”
Xiao Mu was startled when he heard this. He turned around and stared at Liu Yige.
“Heh…..I was wondering who that was. So it’s someone from the Liu clan huh.”
The Xiao clan was on good terms with the Liu clan, but after the Liu clan allied themselves with the Ye clan, they started to become distant from each other. They both chose to stand on different sides.
“Don’t put me in the same category as you. I want to teach Ye Zifeng a lesson, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to stop me by yourself?” Xiao Mu coldly snorted.
“Right. Everyone in the team is associated with the Xiao clan. You’re the only outsider amongst us. You’re lucky that you were able to even join us and yet you’re trying to talk back to brother Mu?”
Originally, Liu Yige thought that he was the only one that hated Ye Zifeng with all his guys. But right now, he was looking at things in another perspective. He realized that there were quite a few people who have feuds with Ye Zifeng.
How is Ye Zifeng still alive after offending so many people?
“If you don’t want to come then that’s fine with us too. Your share of the rewards will be split amongst us. That’s better for us.” Xiao Mu laughed.
“Hmph. You want to use words to incite me? I want to see how arrogant you’ll be later. I want to see what kind of strength you have to back up these words.”
Liu Yige was pissed. He decided to follow along to watch the show. It didn’t matter if Ye Zifeng came or not. He’ll write down everything on the spirit paper and send more reports to Ye Zifeng.
While the group was walking, they came across two low level beasts. When the two beasts saw the vicious and fierce look in the eyes of the Xiao clan members, they ran away.
“Why aren’t we there yet? Did we go the wrong way?” Rong Fan muttered and looked around.
“That’s what I should be asking you! Aren’t you the one that told us that someone in your group found the Blazing Eagle’s nest?”
Rong Fan hesitated and didn’t know how to explain himself, “I…..”
“Don’t tell me….. You were playing around with us?” Xiao Mu shot a cold glare at Rong Fan.
He didn’t like Rong Fan in the first place. And now, Rong Fan brought them to this random place without any signs of the Blazing Eagle. He was feeling pissed.
In addition, everyone in the Xiao clan team looked for the giant python yesterday and couldn’t even see its shadow once. Now, they had been following this stupid Rong Fan kid since early morning and could not find anything either. They basically wasted their second day!
Even though Rong Fan was stupid, it didn’t mean that he was someone who backs down easily.
“The person that I sent is my trusted aid. He definitely won’t lie to me. He really did find the Blazing Eagle’s nest. It’s not far from here!”
Xiao Mu spoke with words that were as cold as ice, “If your trusted aid didn’t lie to you, then are you lying to us?”
The two teams didn’t even find the Blazing Eagle yet but they’re already fighting with each other.
While listening to the two fight, Liu Yige felt something in his robes. He stealthily took out a spirit paper and glanced at it. His expression froze as his jaws dropped.
On the spirit paper were the words: “How’s the argument between the Xiao clan and the Rong clan?”
Liu Yige’s face twitched as he stared at the paper.
What does he mean? Could it be that the argument between the two clans were instigated by Ye Zifeng?
His heart shuddered. Hold on. That means Ye Zifeng wants to get involved!
“That’s not a bad thing. He can help me teach that Xiao Mu a lesson.”
Liu Yige thought about the events that transpired before and how Xiao Mu and his lackeys embarrassed him. Right now, he didn’t hate Ye Zifeng anymore. If he did, he would be hating Ye Zifeng for not coming earlier.
“But…. How did he know that they’re arguing right now? Unless he’s already…….”
Liu Yige looked around and tried to find Ye Zifeng. He can feel Ye Zifeng’s gaze in the shadows, watching everything that was going on.
“Alright. Stop arguing. How can we fight the Blazing Eagle together if we keep this up?”
Xiao Ying was the strongest person in between the two groups. Everyone respected him and listened to his words.
Xiao Ying then paused for a bit before continuing, “If a demonic beast has enough intelligence, they can hide their nest. Maybe this Blazing Eagle know how to hide its nest?”
He had to offer an explanation to calm everyone down.
“Then what can we do…… If this Blazing Eagle really does know how to hide its nest…..which one of us is able to see through it?” Xiao Mu rubbed his chins. He had a complicated expression on his face.
“This…..” Everyone else looked at each other.
At this time, Liu Yige looked at the spirit paper again. His eyes widened in shock as he started to memorize the contents.
He put the spirit paper back into his robe and took a deep breath. He cleared his throat and spoke.
“If no one has any ideas. Then why don’t I give it a try?”
Xiao Mu let out a cold snort and stared at Liu Yige.
It would be more believable if it was Ye Zifeng saying these words. After all, Ye Zifeng is someone who can accomplish things out of everyone’s expectation. But Liu Yige? Who the hell does he think he is?
Even Xiao Ying who was in the 9th stage of qi refining could not do anything. Yet, this Liu Yige was trying to do something?
“Don’t say that I don’t trust you, but on what basis should we believe you?”
“On the basis that my words are facts!” Liu Yige had Ye Zifeng’s instructions and was very confident. He was like a fox who’s exploiting a tiger’s might.”
(TL: Pretty interesting read lol http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/365064-chinese-idioms-a-fox-exploits-a-tigers-might-%E7%8B%90%E5%81%87%E8%99%8E%E5%A8%81/)
“Facts? That’s a interesting way to put it. I’d like to see what kind of facts you’re talking about.” Xiao Mu laughed with a look filled with disdain.
“Then listen up. From you position, walk ten step towards west. Then 7 steps towards north…..”
Xiao Mu bursted out in laughter, “Okay. I’ll do as you say. Ten steps towards west and then seven steps towards north. What’s next? Do you still want me to walk?”
“Then four or five more steps towards west.” Liu Yige forgot whether it was four or five steps so he told Xiao Mu to walk four or five.
When he said that, everyone else bursted into laughter.
“Young master Xiao. This guy doesn’t even know what he’s talking about and yet you’re following his instructions!
Xiao Mu laughed harder and harder, “Some people won’t shed a single drop of tear until they see the coffin. I’ll use this chance to teach him a lesson.:
“Then… How about you take a look to the ride. Tell me. What do you see?
Liu Yige was feeling a little down after being laughed at. He didn’t know whether Ye Zifeng’s words were true or not.
Xiao Mu laughed and looked up to the right.
Suddenly, his expression froze. His face paled. He was extremely shocked at what he saw.
