Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When the group of people from Moon Illumination Sect looked at the harmless-looking purple-clad young girl, all of them a hint of dread on their faces. Nobody dared to approach her at all.
“I wonder how we should address you, Young Miss?” Bai Li Hong took a deep breath before he looked at the purple-clad young girl and forced a smile on his face.
“Zi’er,” the purple-clad young girl replied. At the same time, she looked at Duan Ling Tian and winked, rendering Duan Ling Tian speechless.
I don’t really know you that well, right?
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian was even more curious about the purple-clad young girl’s identity.
‘I wonder if she’s related to that Chi Mei… If not, all of these are just too coincidental,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“Why did you help me earlier?” Duan Ling Tian could not help but ask the purple-clad young girl through Voice Transmission.
“Well, you’re the only one wearing purple among these people.” The purple-clad young girl’s reply made him speechless.
“T-That’s all? Just because of this, you helped me vent my anger?”
Duan Ling Tian really did not know what else to say. Initially, he had thought this purple-clad young girl was related to Chi Mei since the moment she appeared, she had taken the initiative to speak to him. However, he just found out it was because he was wearing purple!
Among the people from Moon Illumination Sect, he was indeed the only one wearing purple. He had no other clothing apart from his purple clothes.
Whether it was in his past life or now, he only had eyes for the color purple.
“So it’s actually Young Miss Zi’er.” Bai Li Hong did not notice the young girl winking at Duan Ling Tian since he did not dare to look her in the eyes. She was a Saint Stage Saint Beast after all.
“Young Miss Zi’er.” At this moment, the other two inner court elders of Moon Illumination Sect also politely bowed at the young girl. They were afraid they would offend her if they were not courteous enough.
Seeing how the three inner court elders were bowing toward the young girl, the group of inner court disciples, naturally, did not dare to slack.
Even Zhong Huo, who had been beaten into a pulp by that young girl, also led He Zhong to bow at her after he had slightly recovered.
Although he was humiliated, he did not harbor any enmity in his heart at all.
What a joke!
She was a Saint Stage Saint Beast after all!
Even if he had already entered the Saint Stage, he would still not be a match for her, let alone he was only at the Imminent Saint Stage now.
If she dared to create a scene in the Moon Illumination Sect, it was obvious she was very confident in her strength. Otherwise, she would not act so recklessly.
“Junior Brother!” When Bai Li Hong saw how Duan Ling Tian did not bow at the young girl and stood head and shoulders above the others, horror dawned on his face immediately. He quickly gave him a reminder.
At this moment, other people had also begun to notice this.
“Young Miss Zi’er.” Duan Ling Tian felt a little moved in his heart when he saw how anxious Bai Li Hong was. In order to not make him worry, he nodded at the purple-clad young girl as a greeting.
Bai Li Hong’s face turned horrified when he saw how casual Duan Ling Tian was.
The others, on the other hand, especially Zhong Huo, the Vice Sect Leader, were taking pleasure in this situation since he felt Duan Ling Tian was doomed.
However, the young girl’s response left them completely dumbstruck.
“Hmm, not bad! We have the same taste. I love wearing purple as well! Purple is the best color in the world. As for green… Urghh, it’s really too ugly.” The young miss smiled and nodded at Duan Ling Tian before looking at Zhong Huo who was dressed in green, frowning. “Why’s there such a tasteless person in this world? I can’t believe you’re actually wearing green!”
The people were immediately rendered speechless.
Wearing purple was equal to having a good judgment but wearing green was tasteless?
The moment Duan Ling Tian heard this young girl’s words, the corner of his mouth twitched violently. Other than the fact he had glanced at Zhong Huo earlier, who would think she also disliked him because he was wearing a green robe.
At this moment, people began to return to their senses.
The eyes that were looking at Zhong Huo contained hints of pity.
Zhong Huo almost spat out blood when he heard the young girl’s words.
He had made up his mind to burn every single green clothing he owned when he returned to the sect.
He finally understood why the young girl had chosen him. As it turned out, it was because he was wearing the color she hated.
An almighty Vice Sect Leader of Moon Illumination Sect had been brutally beaten by a Saint Stage Saint Beast just because the clothes he wore was not right.
The inner court disciples could just tell how much of a commotion this news would raise when it spread in the sect.
All of them were not surprised the young girl loved purple. After all, her true form was that of a gigantic purple purple bird. She was covered entirely in purple feathers.
On the other hand, the fact that the young girl hated green made everyone feel that Zhong Huo was really unlucky. He became a victim just because of this.
Whether it was Zhong Huo, Bai Li Hong or the others, all of them were thinking about throwing out all the green clothes they owned when they returned to the sect. Otherwise, it would only be a matter of time before something happened.
Zhong Huo was a prime example of that.
Zhong Huo did not expect the incident today would remain in the Moon Illumination Sect for many years. Even after 100 years, it would still be mentioned all the time.
Naturally, it had turned into a joke.
This incident accompanied Zhong Hui his entire life. Even at the moment when he was about to die of old age, he still lamented about wearing green today.
However, all these happened much later in the future.
Just like this, the group of Moon Illumination Sect’s people brought the young girl, Zi’er, back to the sect.
If they had another option, naturally, they would not bring her back. However, what other option did they have?
When the people almost arrived at the Moon Illumination Sect, Chi Mei had also arrived at the nest of the Mountainshade Black Market’s branch in the Nine Sect Alliances’ district in a faraway land.
The moment she arrived, she immediately went to look for the leader of the Mountainshade Black Market’s branch.
The Mountainshade Black Market’s leader lived in a standalone mansion in the middle of the mountain. When Chi Mei entered the mansion, she acted without restraint and descended directly from the sky to the mansion’s backyard as though she owned the place.
It was as though the formation in the sky above the backyard had no effect on her at all.
In the backyard, a majestic-looking middle-aged man who was dressed in a black robe with golden trim was originally cultivating cross-legged. However, the sudden movement caused him to open his eyes abruptly.
Since he was disturbed by the movement, naturally, his face did not have an expression of joy.
However, the moment he saw the source of the disturbance, the annoyed expression on his face vanished without a trace and was replaced with respect instead.
“Miss Mei’er,” The black-robed middle-aged man stood up abruptly and bowed at Chi Mei respectfully. The courtesy he showed Chi Mei was sincere.
If this scene was witnessed by the people from the Mountainshade Black Market, they would be shocked and find this hard to believe.
The leader of their Mountainshade Black Market’s branch in the Nine Sect Alliances’ district, the person with the highest position, actually showed such a manner in front of Chi Mei, a Quasi Four Star Assassin?
At this moment, facing Chi Mei, the Mountainshade Black Market’s branch’s leader acted as though he was facing his superior.
In the face of the leader of the Mountainshade Black Market’s branch, Chi Mei’s gaze was cold as she said nonchalantly, “Call off the mission regarding the Moon Illumination Sect’s disciple Duan Ling Tian. I have some use for him.”
“Sure.” Upon hearing her words, he did not ask any question and immediately agreed to it.
Moreover, he immediately walked out of the mansion to pass down his order as soon as she left.
One hour later, the operation center of Mountainshade Black Market in Han River City received this order.
“Call off the mission of killing the Moon Illumination Sect’s disciple, Duan Ling Tian?” When Yin Yang received this order, he thought he had heard it wrong. He only realized he did not hear wrongly after confirming it twice. Not only that, but the order was personally issued by the leader of the Mountainshade Black Market’s branch.
“Don’t tell me Chi Mei has also failed?” Tai Wu frowned.
“It’s possible.” Yin Yang nodded before a hint of doubt appeared on his face again. “However, even if Chi Mei has failed, there’s no reason for Leader to pass down this order at all… Chi Mei is merely a Quasi Four Star Assassin. We have many Four Star and even Quasi Five Star Assassins in our branch!”
“Moreover, Leader’s strength is equivalent to a Five Star Assassin!” Yin Yang found the entire thing strange.
“Perhaps there’s some powerhouse supporting Duan Ling Tian in the dark, and Leader’s giving that powerhouse face,” Tai Wu speculated.
“This seems like the only plausible reason.” Yin Yang nodded. Apart from this, he could not come up with another plausible reason.
Tai Wu’s eyes gleamed as he said, “Right now, I’m really curious about this Duan Ling Tian from the Moon Illumination Sect.”
Tai Wu’s strength was at the Quasi Five Star Assassin stage in the Mountainshade Black Market.
“Tai Wu! You can’t be reckless! This is an order given personally by the Leader. You should know his temper… Everyone who dares to go against his order will not have a good ending!” Yin Yang quickly reminded when he heard Tai Wu’s words.
“Relax. I only said I’m curious about him. I don’t have any intention of making a move,” Tai Wu replied.
When he thought of the leader of the Mountainshade Black Market’s branch, a hint of dread could be seen in his eyes.
When he had just come to the branch, he had defeated most of the Saint Stage powerhouses. Only one of them came to a draw with him. However, in the end, the other person made such a mighty move and defeated him in just a blow. He was defeated to the point that he willingly accepted it.
The person who defeated him in just one blow was none other than the leader of the Mountainshade Black Market’s branch in the Nine Sect Alliances’ district.
Soon after, the mission that Liu Huan had given to the Mountainshade Black Market was called off.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian and the others had also arrived at the Moon Illumination Sect.
When the young girl with the true form of a Super Saint Beast Purplecloud Thunder Roc left Duan Ling Tian’s sight, he heaved a sigh of relief.
Although the young girl was friendly toward him, he felt a hint of dread whenever he remembered the fact that she could easily kill him with her strength.
‘I wonder if the few Saint Stage powerhouses in our sect will be able to defeat her,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself. His heart was filled with curiosity.
