Chapter 155 Heavenly Snow Mountain Mountain Lord! (3)

Alas, who knew that when Tian’er heard about the betrothal, she fled from home to escape that marriage.

More so… when she had finally returned, both Xue AoTian and the lion prince Xin had discovered that she was no longer… untouched.

Flying into a rage, Xue AoTian almost killed his own daughter with his own hands. However, in the end, he only had this one daughter, and he could not land the final blow.

As for the Lion Prince, he could only swallow his pride and anger to accept it. For the sake of the Heavenly Snow Mountain Mountain Lord position, as well as for the fact that he truly liked Tian’er, he could only endure it, telling Xue AoTian that he was still willing to take Tian’er as his bride. Feeling guilty towards him, Xue AoTian ended up doting more on this disciple of his.

Half a year had already passed, and the engagement ceremony was already complete despite all of Tian’er’s protests. Even when she threatened to take her own life, she was unable to change Xue AoTian’s mind, and he brought his daughter alongside himself. The stubborn Mountain Lord truly believed that time could change everything, and such an outstanding talent like the Lion Prince Gu Yingbing would eventually move his daughter and enter her heart.

In order to sever Tian’er’s remaining fantasies, Xue AoTian personally set their wedding date, which was three months from the current day.

“This is the Dragon Silencing Seal from the Demonic Dragon Lady.” Xue AoTian said solemnly as he analyzed the image. “… Underestimating your enemy is always the worst flaw. Nine-Jewels against Four-Jewels, and he could still be tricked. Batulu, how did you teach your son?” Although he did not release his aura, Xue AoTian’s words caused Batulu to start sweating profusely despite the icy cold temperature.

“Demonic Change State… Dragon Silencing Seal… And this… Darkness, Demonic and Lightning Attribute Fusion Skill… Hmm… a tri-Attribute Venom made from those energies.” As he spoke to that point, Xue AoTian’s eyes narrowed.

“YingBing, arrange for a place for Batulu to get some rest, he can come collect his son in three days time.” The Dark Demon God Lightning might be too much for a Heavenly King Stage powerhouse like Shangguan Longyin to handle, but it was unable to stop the strongest man in the world, who held the Divine Attribute. Of course, Butler had already been suffering from the venom for such a long time, and even for Xue AoTian, it would not be an easy feat to totally remove the poison.

Batulu felt so lucky, as if he had struck the jackpot. He did not know what to say or do, and could only kneel there kowtowing in gratitude.

The light image finally disappeared, and Tian’er stood there as if her soul had been drained out of her. The next instant, a brilliant flash shone forth, and both Xue AoTian and Tian’er disappeared. Along with them, the unconscious Butler also disappeared.

When his Master had finally disappeared, the Lion Prince Gu Yingbing abruptly punched out viciously, his fist stabbing into the empty air, causing a loud explosion. His entire body seemed to be vibrating with sheer rage, his head of golden red hair whipping about in the wind.

“Bastard, it must be that bastard!” Gu Yingbing felt as if his rage was about to erupt out of his body. Abruptly, he took a step forward, grabbing the Wolf King Batulu and howling angrily: “Tell me, where did your son meet this youth? Tell me everything in detail, don’t leave anything out, not even the most insignificant thing.”

Batulu was given a fright by the sudden outburst of the Lion Prince Gu Yingbing, and he dared not delay, hurriedly telling everything he knew.

“ZhongTian Empire… Northern borders… the North West Armies… Good, very good.” The words were spat out through gritted teeth, grinding so hard that the sound was audible. He felt as if the blood was about the burst out of his body with anger, and his eyes danced with rage and the light of mania, killing intent clear as day in the atmosphere.

Deep in the Heavenly Snow Castle… a room that was almost sealed airtight with sculpted ice… the Heavenly Snow Mountain Mountain Lord appeared with his daughter. As for Butler, he had disappeared to another area.

Currently, Tian’er’s heart was still shaken. She had not seen Zhou Weiqing for more than half a year, and seeing him so suddenly without warning, how could her heart be at peace? The emotions and feelings she had buried deep within erupted like an active volcano, uncontrollable despite her best efforts. Alas, she could only lower her head in silence, not daring to look at her father.

“Is it him?” Xue AoTian said passively.

Tian’er did not reply, biting her lower lip softly. She did not dare make a sound, as fear and dread rose slowly from her heart, sinking deep into the pits of her stomach.

“Is it him?” Xue AoTian’s voice grew sterner.

With a sudden thud, Tian’er knelt down in front of her father. Tears streaming down her cheeks, she said in a trembling voice: “Father, please, I beg you, let him go. I will marry Bro Gu, I won’t look for him anymore, okay? Please, let him go.” She was clear that if her father wanted to kill someone, no matter even if the person was the leader of a Great Saint Lands, he or she might not be able to escape… let alone Zhou Weiqing. To be able to find him, that was an easy task for Xue AoTian.

To her immense surprise, Xue AoTian actually sighed. “Get up, I won’t kill him, and I won’t blame you anymore.” He held her and helped her up, a strange look of being deep in thought on his face.

A flick of his fingers, and the tears on his daughter’s face disappeared. “Silly girl, why did you not tell me about him? If I knew that was so… father would not be so strict with you. Indeed, this cannot be blamed on you.”

“Ahh?” By now, Tian’er was totally confused, not knowing what her father was speaking about. She could only stare in surprise at Xue AoTian, whose face had a hint of regret and apology.

Xue AoTian said: “No wonder you would be so attracted to him, that is not your fault, but it is a certainty due to the Attributes he has. Who would think… that someone like that would actually exist in this world… to have both the Demonic Attribute and Time Attribute at the same time! More so, his Demonic Attribute looks to be of the purest kind, a first generation who Awakened it. Both you and he have two Saint Attributes, added to the fact that his Demonic Change State is also of a tiger bloodline… naturally he would hold a great attraction to you. Being together with him… that should have a strong benefit to your cultivation right?”

Tian’er nodded subconsciously. Naturally, she remembered how they had met in the first place, and she had known about the Saint Attributes being a benefit to her cultivation. It had been that strange aura that had drawn her to him in the first place, and being together with him all that time had indeed sped up her cultivation greatly. She had even originally thought about staying with him all the way until she broke through the Heavenly King Stage to make full use of him. 1

Xue AoTian sighed once more. “What a shame… if I had met him ten years earlier… perhaps I would not have opposed you marrying him.”

Tian’er stared at her father with her jaw agape. She had never imagined that her father would actually show such a sudden change after watching Zhou Weiqing’s fight in the image.

“How old is he?” Xue AoTian thought for a moment before asking.

Tian’er said: “Seventeen years old… not even eighteen I think.”

Another look of shock appeared on Xue AoTian’s face, and he exclaimed: “Seventeen years old only…” His brow furrowed deeply, as if he had met with a problem he could not solve.

Light flashed in his eyes, but no one could tell what he was thinking about.

Tian’er did not hold any hope about the sudden change in her father’s attitude. In all her memory, as long as her father had made a decision, it could never be changed.

“Father, you really won’t kill him?” Tian’er asked tentatively once more.

Xue AoTian nodded and said: “This could be a chance, a turning point, for our Heavenly Snow Mountain… for you. If you had told me about him earlier, perhaps there might still have been a chance to deal with things between you and Yingbing, to turn things around. Alas, it is too late, you have already gone through the engagement ceremony. Things are troublesome then.”

“Turn things around?” As soon as she heard that, Tian’er felt joy overwhelm her, and she asked excitedly.

Xue AoTian continued: “He has the Demonic and Time Attributes, and you have the Divine and Spirit Attributes. The four Saint Attributes, when gathered together and cultivating, both of you would have an extremely high chance of breaking through the Heavenly King Stage before the age of thirty. If that was so, you two might actually reach the Heavenly God Stage in the future, perhaps even breaking through together… and more importantly, have the chance to break through to a stage that I have never reached and beyond.”

“If you had told me details about him earlier and brought him back, perhaps I could have taken him as disciple and maybe even allow you two to be together. Although our Heavenly Snow Mountain rules disallow passing on the position of Lord to females, but if you can truly raise to the cultivation level of Heavenly God Tier and beyond, who would dare speak otherwise, not even the other powerful Tribes of the WanShou Empire.”

Tian’er was stunned, totally stunned. She had never in her wildest dreams imagine that her father would speak of such to her. Clearly, in her father’s eyes, Zhou Weiqing’s talent was truly important, perhaps even causing him to regret making the deal between the Divine Heavenly Spirit Tiger Tribe and Heavenly Divine Earth Spirit Lion Tribe.

“Father, let me go look for him now and bring him back, okay?” Tian’er said urgently.

Xue AoTian shook his head sternly and said: “No, it is too late for that. One cannot go back on their word. You have already been betrothed to Yingbing, and you will be married to him soon. Although that little boyfriend of yours is extremely talented, but he is still after all just one person. Unless he has sufficient powers behind him that can awe the lions, and after that, able to snatch you away from Yingbing in a fair fight… otherwise, even I cannot change such a decision that has already been made.”

The hope that had just risen up in Tian’er’s heart was once again cruelly dashed, her heart turning ice cold in despair. What force or influence did Zhou Weiqing have behind him? Even if he had some connection with the Heaven’s Expanse Palace, it was not enough for them to support him in such a matter. Let alone the fact that the Heaven’s Expanse Palace were mortal enemies with the Heavenly Snow Mountain, whether or not their aid would be of any help in such a matter… just the fact that his connection was through his relationship with Shangguan Bing’er, how could that possibly be of use? How could the Heaven’s Expanse Palace possibly help him come seek her hand in marriage?

Xue AoTian sighed and said: “Alright, enough, don’t think so much about this. Go back and prepare to be a bride… Yingbing truly likes you alot, no matter what you had done previously, he still does not reject you. Such a husband, what do you have to be dissatisfied with? Go then, Father needs to cultivate now.”

When Tian’er left, she had resumed her previous zombie-like semblance, causing Xue AoTian to furrow his brow in worry. Despite his adamant stance, he did love his daughter very much. At the same time, in his heart, he started to feel curious about Zhou Weiqing, wanting to have a look at this youth who had stolen his daughter’s heart so strongly, to attract her so much.

Should I arrange things in secret? What a troublesome mess.

At this point, it was extremely rare, nearly impossible to find something to cause trouble to the Heavenly Snow Mountain Mountain Lord. Yet, such a thing had just appeared right now. With his status, how could he possibly allow his daughter to secretly cultivate together with Zhou Weiqing. Yet, the two Saint Attributes that Zhou Weiqing had caused even Xue AoTian’s heart to itch on his daughter’s behalf. This was an unbelievable opportunity after all. The Thirteenth Heavenly Jewel. What would that be like? The legendary Heavenly Jewel Change Stage! 2

    1. That’s not being old school, they were already engaged, so it will be hard to break off. He’s not really inclined to marry off his daughter expecially now that he knows of ZW’s attributes.

      ZW just has’ta kill that little lion cub when they meet in the battlefield, hehe. All bars removed, lol

  1. Oh?

    They are really going through with it even though she isn’t a virgin anymore? I thought that was ridiculously important in these types of stories.

          1. I think we all know that ZW is going to find out that the Lion Bloodline were planning to renegade on the deal which leads to the King changing his mind about the marriage.. Note: not an actual spoiler, just a guess.

        1. The Lion Prince would be giving up the Throne of the country but he would become the leader of the sect and sects are basically in charge of the countries in this story.

    1. As long as it is not made public, the groom accepts her and her family doesn’t kill her, it’s doable. Such double standards seems too cruel.

    1. Well to be fair the triplet’s father was rather vocally against it (until he saw ZWQ’s potential) especially after finding out a 2nd daughter fell for him. His brother on the other hand whole heartedly supports the situation because he wants to rope in ZWQ lol.

  2. “Unless he has sufficient powers behind him that can awe the lions, and after that, able to snatch you away from Yingbing in a fair fight… otherwise, even I cannot change such a decision that has already been made.”
    The flags have been raised. (nobody saw this one comming -_-)
    I do wonder if his backing is strong enough hmmmm. Thanks for the chapter!!!

    1. I mean… he got the sisters country more or less in his hands. He got the Big Fatty dude, maybe even his frend if he gets better? And he just has to say the word and he will be the boss of the demon tribe… group thing.

      I am still a bit satly at them tho. -.- The teacher girl would have been all good but she did the same shitty thing as the 2nd sister. Not paying up after loosing a bet. That would piss me off way too much. I would probably have just found myeself another house. And gotten her in trouble with her clan later, saying she has ruined his view of the whole clan. Then naturaly the older dude that was with her also did the same **** thing.

      Then the 2nd time we delt with them the holy maiden or whatever almost killed all his frends. -.- Just like with the bow princess girl, I do not mind them becomming his wifes. But they better pay up for the shit they have pulled first.

      Do you think Fatty will unite all the land by snatching up all the prinsesses and beating down the empires that do not got one?

  3. I knew that if I wished hard enough and hit f5 religiously every 20 min we could get a day with 2 chapters!!

    Thanks Zen!

    PS- what (or who) do I need to sacrifice for a 3rd chapter?

  4. Zen, bring it, son. Good thing Weiqing has been training heavy. First he has to beat off hubby, then fight his way to Tianer’s side.

    1. Yea. If the lion dude is only 8 jewels then I see it as possible for Little Fatty to beat him. He now has 5 jewels. 1 more then in his 9 jewel battle. He got his demon state. He has to some degree manipulation down. He has a higher level aura. Not to mention the suprice bird to help him out.
      If he can somehow manage to hit the dude with his 3 poison thing too, then that would make another advantage.
      Just his demonic state and all his elements, along with his gear, I would expect to put him well into the 6.5 jewel range.
      1 and a half jewel is a big diffrence, but not impossible to beat. Not yet anyway. But his aura may be able to supress it closer to a 1 jewel diffrence.
      So say he could hit the dude with his poison. And draw the battle out. OH! And he got the seal thing that can block the dudes ablility to use skills.

      A lot would have to go his way, but it should be within his range of what he could win. I think he would be better against this dude then the 3rd sister for example.

      1. the seal skill is The Dragon Silencing Seal.
        The hardest fight now will be ZW against Lion Prince. I think the fight ZW vs Shangguan Xue’er will not be so hard. By that time that both of them will gona fight, she might has fallen for him as well kkkk. He doesn’t has to fight kkk, just go and poke her lol

  5. Title drop … roll cred….. damn you beat me to it =P

    On another note, father-in-law approves, now little fatty quick get stronger to defend your woman’s happiness.

    1. Well he better, or his world will fall apart one day. >-> If Fatty learns that her father has married HIS woman away, I doubt just getting her back would do it. No, I would think the whole tribes would be destroyed. Do not need the old snow tiger tribe, fatty will just help her spawn a new one. :p

  6. Yeaaaaah, Zhou little fatty is going to get his butt kicked badly pretty soon.
    Thankfully his backup is one of the strongest people in, you know, the world.
    But this three months thing is probably going to mean a major power up in our MC pretty soon. Enough that we’re going to see a pretty awesome fight at the “Wedding”. As it stands, fatty is going to steal the bride after a beat-down on her almost hubby and her dad is going to be all, “yeah, sounds legit”.

    1. If the lion dude goes there to kill him… and theres a fight. Well if the lion dude gets killed or just beat up really bad to a state where he will permanently be weaker. That would do it. How can they marry if one is dead already.

  7. Xue AoTian: “(…) Unless he has sufficient powers behind him that can awe the lions, and after that, able to snatch you away from Yingbing in a fair fight… otherwise, even I cannot change such a decision that has already been made.”

    So… Maybr AoTian will gonna visit ZW soon? Haha! I’m wondering he paying a visit at the Peerless Batallion to see ZW.

    AoTian: “Hey, I’m the f***ing Heavenly Snow Mountain Mountain Lord, a 12-jeweled Heavenly Jewel Master, almost a God on Earth. I’m here to see Zhou Weiqing, the one who poked my daughter, is he home now?”

    2nd Batallion Commander: “… Hell. He is over there. He is all yours!!!”
    *sfx* man running for their liver *sfx*

    Seriously. In 3 months our less, ZW might do a power advance in his Element Manipulation, and, I think, he will almost broke throught the 6th jeweled. In accordance to fight against the Lion Prince, which is 8th jeweled (I think), he should have to train like a crazy!!!

    1. So the solution is simple, Little Fatty must show to the world that he can beat the crap out of Simba there or better yet kill off the entire lions pride, problem solved!

    2. I do not know about that. He managed to get the result he did against a 9th jeweled. And from what I can tell, every one of them is a larger boost then the last. So by going down a level for his enemy, and up a level himself. Along with the new skills from the Element Manipulation. I mean, It is only 3 levels of diffrence. 2 or even 1,5 with the demonic state. That should be within his range already.
      But I doubt he would be able to win, rather. I would expect the result to be close, however before the lion dude can get the final blow. Fatty will get help. Then again, I mean just getting a hit of the 3 poison thing, would make the battle go in Fatty’s direction I would expect. The more the lion dude would use his power the more it would spread. He would take it worse the butcher too due to having a jewel less.

      I rather expect him to drag an army along. Then it would be what army is better trained.

      1. Butler doesn’t have good equipment and the Lion Prince will have God tier equipment so it is not as easy as Zhou Weiqing defeating Butler. Plus the Lion Prince will have 2 Saint Attributes and he got the strongest master.

        1. Yea that is a good point. However, I am not sure he will have 2 saint attributes. That was one of the things Xue AoTian see as the reason she likes him. If the Lion Prince also got it, I do not see that being much of a factor anymore. But I suppose it would not be impossible.
          I guess I am thinking that the strongest master thing is somewhat made up for by Weiqing’s new master. Do we know if he has multiple tributes at all, and if so it may be limited to 2 or 3? It is supposed to be a rare thing. I suppose he would be adapt at skill manipulation.

          I wonder… will god tier equipment make up for a whole level? It probably will with 8 of them, at least on a low level like his. If can be counted as low. Still, fatty will have 5 himself.
          D: Dang I want to know what happens next. XD

        2. If I’m not mistaken, the only clan who has 2 saint attributes is the Tiger Clan, isn’t it? I think that is the cause tha the Mountain Lord liker ZW a lot, cuz he has 2 Saint Attributes.

      2. Not to mention, he’s gonna hit 5 jewels soon if he hasn’t already, which means another piece of God gear, another damage shield, and another set bonus.
