Chapter 2242: What Are You Crying For
The moment Huang Xiaolong opened his eyes, the first thing that entered his sight was the person standing outside the large array.
It was Xiao Feng, and his face was twisted as if he couldnt decide if he wanted to cry or laugh.
“Lord Custodian Xiao Feng, did I pass the test” Huang Xiaolong asked calmly.
After hearing that Huang Xiaolong had called him Lord Custodian Xiao Feng, Xiao Fengs knees gave out, and he plopped to the ground on his knees in a panic, sobbing with all his heart, “Your Highness Holy Prince, youve passed the test, youve passed the test with flying colors!”
Huang Xiaolong called him Lord Custodian.
Wasnt that asking for his life
There were no changes to Huang Xiaolongs calm expression as he spoke, “Since Ive passed the test, thats a joyous event.
What are you crying for”
Xiao Fengs body trembled as he shrunk back.
His wailing sobs stopped abruptly, replaced by a panicked self-reprimand, “I would be damned, I would be damned! Pardon me please, Your Highness Holy Prince.
I, I was just too happy.
Yes, yes, thats right, too happy!”
“I have troubled you then.” Huang Xiaolong responded tepidly.
There seemed to be another meaning to his words.
Xiao Feng felt like crying even more after hearing Huang Xiaolongs words.
He was about to cry again for Huang Xiaolong to spare him, but he remembered that Huang Xiaolong had just passed the test.
Hence he did not dare to cry in fear of ruining Huang Xiaolongs joyous event.
Huang Xiaolong couldnt be bothered to deal with Xiao Feng anymore.
He turned and walked towards the doors.
The testing halls doors were still tightly shut at this time.
Despite seeing Huang Xiaolong leave, Xiao Feng still didnt dare to get up from the floor.
Instead, he moved forward on his knees in agile movements, chasing after Huang Xiaolong.
“Your Highness Holy Prince, please allow me to open the doors for you!” Xiao Feng volunteered enthusiastically from behind Huang Xiaolong.
“There is no need.
This kind of work is too much to trouble Lord Custodian Xiao Feng.” With that said, Huang Xiaolongs pulled at the handles and opened the doors wide to the sides.
As it was noon, bright rays of sunlight shone into the hall the moment the doors opened, shining on Huang Xiaolongs face.
Sun Huage, Liu Cheng, and the others, who had been waiting on the other side of the doors, immediately straightened up when they saw the doors opening.
When they looked up, they saw an unfamiliar handsome young man with an extraordinary bearing, with eyes like the dark deep space.
Sun Huage and Liu Cheng were stunned for a moment.
They had taken for granted that the person opening the doors would be Xiao Feng.
But Sun Huage soon reacted, and quickly knelt on single knee before Huang Xiaolong in apprehension.
“Holy Gate headquarters Law Enforcement Halls Sun Huage greets to Your Highness Holy Prince!”
“Holy Gates Division Master Liu Cheng pays respect to Your Highness Holy Prince!”
“Holy Gates Division High Custodian Li Junlong pays respect to Your Highness Holy Prince!” After Sun Huage and Liu Cheng, Li Junlong and the rest of the custodians all knelt on their knees in salute.
Different from Sun Huage, Liu Cheng and the custodians knelt on both knees.
There was a sea of people kneeling on their knees in the courtyard.
Only one person remained standing.
Song Shaokang looked at Huang Xiaolong in apprehension, gripped by fear.
His face was drained of blood, and seemingly, he was scared to the point of forgetting to salute.
Before Huang Xiaolong opened the doors, Song Shaokang had tried to inquire the present custodians through voice transmission about the person taking the test.
However, in all matters related to the Holy Gates Holy Prince, even these custodians didnt dare to speak mindlessly.
Thus, up until this point, Song Shaokang was unable to determine if the person in the hall was Huang Xiaolong or not.
Up until a moment ago, Song Shaokang was still harboring hope, still fantasizing that the person inside was not Huang Xiaolong.
Huang Xiaolong saw Song Shaokang standing not far away.
He was not saluting on his knees like the others.
A low, cold sneer sounded from his lips.
Due to Wan Zhuoyuans memories, Huang Xiaolong knew quite a lot of the Holy Gates rules.
Rules within the Holy Gate were extremely strict.
Other than the Eminent Elders of the Holy Gate, all others needed to kneel upon seeing the Holy Prince, and greet the Holy Prince as His Highness.
Some people needed to kneel on a single knee, while most were required to kneel on both knees.
Even the Division Master Liu Cheng knelt on both knees in salute.
Therefore, a common Holy Gates disciple like Song Shaokang should have promptly knelt on both knees, saluting Huang Xiaolong.
With Song Shaokang not kneeling, Huang Xiaolong could buckle a crime on Song Shaokongs head, and the punishment could strip a layer of Song Shaokang\'s skin.
Sun Huage, Liu Cheng, and the several custodians also discovered that Song Shaokang was still standing, and their faces ashened at the sight, especially Liu Chengs.
His body swayed, wishing he could faint on the spot.
If the Holy Prince vented on the entire Falling Jade Dynastys Holy Gate division because of Song Shaokang, he as the Division Master would also be punished by the headquarters.
But Huang Xiaolong spoke before Liu Cheng could reprimand Song Shaokang, “Song Shaokang, is it very surprising to see me here Knowing that Ive passed the test, are you not happy Just now, Custodian Xiao Feng was crying from joy.”
Sun Huage, Liu Cheng, and the others all looked at Xiao Feng, who was still kneeling behind Huang Xiaolong.
Although Liu Cheng didnt know what was the conflict between Huang Xiaolong, Song Shaokang, and Xiao Feng, anyone could hear the hostility in Huang Xiaolongs tone!
This Xiao Feng!
Liu Cheng shot Xiao Feng a cold glare.
Xiao Fengs heart constricted in fear from Liu Chengs cold gaze, despair etched on his face.
“Impudent! Song Shaokang, why are you not kneeling in salute seeing His Highness Holy Prince!” Sun Huage looked over his shoulder and barked angrily.
Sun Huage was originally a Seventh Order Venerable expert, his barking voice contained the might of a Seventh Order Venerable Realm expert that rushed towards Song Shaokang, nearly suffocating Song Shaokang.
“Song Shaokang greets His Highness Holy Prince!” Song Shaokang dared not hesitate anymore.
He fell to his knees with a plop, and saluted Huang Xiaolong.
Then, Huang Xiaolong spoke nonchalantly, “Xiao Feng, Song Shaokang, continue to kneel, others, stand up.”
Sun Huage, Liu Cheng, Li Junlong, and the rest acknowledged respectfully before getting up.
Xiao Feng and Song Shaokang despaired further.
Song Shaokang even more so.
His fists were tightly clenched as he endured the humiliation and an intense killing intent swept across his heart and disappeared.
Detecting the killing intent that flowed out of Song Shaokang for the briefest instant, Huang Xiaolong sneered, “Song Shaokang, do you want to kill me”
Sun Huage, Liu Cheng, Li Junlong, and the others, too, were staring at Song Shaokang fixedly, giving Song Shaokang the illusion that each persons gaze could incinerate him in an instant.
“Song Shaokang dares not!” Song Shaokang swiftly denied, lowering his head in a fluster.
Huang Xiaolong sneered, unperturbed, and he didnt trouble Song Shaokang anymore because there would be a lot of time to play with Song Shaokang in the future..
He walked out from the courtyard.
Sun Huage, Liu Cheng, Li Junlong, and the others tactfully followed Huang Xiaolong out of the courtyard without needing a word from Huang Xiaolong.
The Nine Heavens Gates Gate Chief Du Youze, and other forces experts were waiting patiently outside, a hundred meters away.
‘When the Holy Prince appears, I will take out that treasure from the Nine Heavens Gates treasury and offer it as a tribute to the Holy Prince.
He would surely like it, right Du Youze secretly thought to himself.
That treasure was a treasure that their Nine Heavens Gate had kept for billions of years.
The Nine Heavens Gates Eminent Elder Wang Qi, Grand Elder Zhou Heng, and the others stood behind Huang Xiaolong, each immersed in their own thoughts.
While Du Youze and everyone outside waited with anticipation, Huang Xiaolong, Sun Huage, Liu Cheng, and the others finally stepped out from the courtyard.
Seeing that Huang Xiaolong was walking at the head of the group, Du Youze and Wang Qi were still composed apart from looking excited, but Zhou Hengs eyes widened in fear.
He threw himself to the ground in a prostrating posture before saying anything.
The Nine Heavens Gates Gate Chief Du Youze, Big Dipper Sword Sects Sect Chief, Incineration Valley Master, and other forces experts were bewildered by Zhou Hengs mind-boggling action.
“Huang, Huang Xiaolong!” Zhou Heng stuttered.
Huang Xiaolong! Du Youze, Wang Qi, and all experts of Nine Heavens Gate paled.
“Falling Jade Dynastys Emperor, Bi Liang, greets Your Highness Holy Prince!”
“Big Dipper Sword Sect Chief, Wang Tian, greets Your Highness Holy Princess!”
“Incineration Valley Master, Qin Zhixu, greets Your Highness Holy Prince!”
Following the Falling Jade Dynasty Emperors, Big Dipper Sword Sect Chiefs, and Incineration Valley Masters self-introductions and greetings, these forces experts, as well as other various families, and sect forces experts, several thousand of them, all knelt in salute.
