"And Shen Yanxiao’s strength is said to be very outstanding as well. According to the news from Geng Di, Shen Yanxiao herself has enough strength to fight with the Redflame Beast. Furthermore, she seems to have broken through the Second Stage Profession already. On the other hand, as of now, you have just broken through the Advanced Profession. If you fight against her, I’m afraid that there will be some hard work and the outcome will be unpredictable. Geng Di’s strength, however, is the weakest. If he plays against you in the first game, you can retain most of your strength. Just let Shen Yanxiao and Long Fei be the wyvern and the tiger vying against one another; no matter which side wins, the one who will ultimately benefit is you, Duan Hen. All of this is for your own good." Elder Wen seemed to be advising in earnest words and with good intentions. But he didn’t care a bit at all that he was also dragging down his own ally, Geng Di, with his schemes.
The so-called self-inflicted injury indeed existed.
Geng Di tried to win over Elder Wen to his side; the result was that he had been turned into a chess piece by Elder Wen, which made people not know whether to laugh or cry.
Shen Yanxiao was hidden in the dark, listening to the words of Elder Wen. Her mouth revealed the trace of a sneer.
This Elder Wen was really a wily old fox. If she had not decided to come here tonight at the last moment, then perhaps tomorrow she would have really been playing according to their ploy. Whether she used her hand to pull down Long Fei, or Long Fei used his hand to pull her down, either way, the Twilight City would benefit without any harm in the end.
Letting Duan Hen deal with Geng Di, that was definitely going to be extremely easy.
Whether it were Shen Yanxiao or Long Fei that proceeded to the finals, they surely would have already suffered a lot of damage, and fighting against Duan Hen at his peak state would surely be extremely difficult.
"Really an old fox." Shen Yanxiao snorted.
After listening to Elder Wen, Duan Hen hesitantly nodded his head, “Thanking Elder Wen for your painstaking efforts.”
Elder Wen was satisfied with the obedient appearance of Duan Hen, he smiled and said, "Remember that I am doing this for you. You are still young. There are many things that you are still lacking. Your father had also been trained by us elders. Unfortunately, he suddenly died of illness that year, leaving you, his child, alone and helpless. Without our help, do you want to be bullied by the other City Lords in this Barren Land? You can rest a.s.sured that as long as there is the Elders Council, we will not let you suffer injustice."
Duan Hen was silent for a moment before he cupped his fist in his other hand and said, "Duan Hen is very grateful to the Elders Council for protecting me all this time. It is my incompetence that let all the elders take a lot of trouble. The elders good intentions will certainly be paid someday."
"Well, what you’ve said is also what the Elders Council ought to do. Your father had also been very respectful to the Elders Council, our support for you is also to give your father face. Nevertheless, it’s good that you know how to be grateful." Elder Wen smilingly said with an amiable expression.
On one side, Shen Yanxiao was not able to stand the hypocrisy of Elder Wen. This old b.a.s.t.a.r.d kept on saying he was doing things for the good of Duan Hen when the things they had done in the past were in fact totally different. Long Fei also said that Duan Hen was just like a puppet to Elder Wen; he had no freedom nor dignity at all.
As a junior, it was a must for Duan Hen to be respectful towards Elder Wen. Even with the arrangements for Duan Hen’s citizens, he still must follow all the elders’ instructions.
Elder Wen threw out very nice words, but was only repeatedly reminding Duan Hen of the kindness of the Elders Council to him and their very lofty status, which also made people feel rather disgusted.
He was simply an old hypocrite.
Moreover, according to Long Fei, the death of Duan Hen’s father, Duan Wuya, seemed to have a very inextricable link with the Elders Council. And now that he was feigning righteousness, who was he trying to fool?
