“Ke Er, it isn’t necessary for you to explain to them, they’re only a crowd of fence-sitters.” Li Fei extended out her hand that was pure white like jade and lightly patted the back of Ke Er’s hand.
What Li Fei said naturally caused public outrage.
“Little girl, mind what you say!”
“Exactly, on what basis are you calling us fence-sitters? Could it be that what you mean is that this Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple is intentionally accusing all of you unjustly?”
“Is there any need for a Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple to accuse you unjustly?”
The crowd of customers all glared at Li Fei.
When had Li Fei ever experienced such a scene? For a moment, she was angered to the point that her face flushed red, she clenched her fist tightly, and her delicate figure lightly trembled.
Abruptly, a loud sound echoed out, and the clamorous noise within the restaurant abruptly stopped.
Is was Duan Ling Tian who had slapped his palm on the table. “Shut up!”
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s face was extremely grim. These people could talk about him, as at most he would just laugh it off.
But these people actually dared talk about Li Fei, dared talk about his woman!
This was something that he couldn’t tolerate!
Meanwhile, the gazes of the crowd of customers in the restaurant descended onto Duan Ling Tian, and most of them revealed sneers, as they were waiting for the Seven Star Sword Sect disciple to teach Duan Ling Tian a lesson.
“What? Kid, you’re getting angry from embarrassment?” The Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple had a smile of ridicule on his face. He never imagined that the development of events would actually completely turn towards him.
He knew that it was time.
Now, even if he attacked, no one would think that he relied on the backing of the Seven Star Sword Sect to bully another.
Duan Ling Tian looked at the Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple with a gaze that contained a piercingly cold light. He had already lost all patience in playing with this Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple. “Xiong Quan, throw all of them out!”
The three Seven Star Sword Sect disciples couldn’t help but laugh when they heard what Duan Ling Tian said.
Even most of the customers within the restaurant couldn’t refrain from laughing.
Not to mention the fact that the strength of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s inner court disciple was shocking, even if someone had a strength that surpassed a Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple, they still wouldn’t dare act rashly. After all, doing so would directly offend the Seven Star Sword Sect…..
The Seven Star Sword Sect was a top sect in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
How could it be something that anyone would offend?
However, their smiles quickly froze.
Because they saw.
“Yes, Young Master!” Xiong Quan replied, then his figure flashed out as if transforming into a gust of wind.
At the instant that the smiles of the three Seven Star Sword Sect disciples froze, Xiong Quan attacked out like a bolt of lightning, catching them one by one and directly throwing them out of the restaurant….
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Three loud crashes sounded from outside the restaurant, and accompanying the crashes were three shrill cries.
The restaurant went deathly silent, as all the customers within were dumbstruck.
They weren’t dumbstruck by the Nascent Soul Stage strength that Xiong Quan revealed. Instead, they were dumbstruck by the fact that Xiong Quan dared to touch a Seven Star Sword Sect disciple….
The Seven Star Sword Sect was famous for being protective of their own!
They thought that this middle-aged man would surely meet great disaster since he dared to touch Seven Star Sword Sect disciples.
How would they know that those three Seven Star Sword Sect disciples wouldn’t go to the sect elders about this matter…..
Them being on the right was only a false front.
The Seven Star Sword Sect elders weren’t stupid and weren’t so easy to bluff.
Buying an infant Goldfur Mouse for 100,000 silver?
This was already relying on the backing of the sect to bully another!
So the three Seven Star Sword Sect disciples fiercely glared at Duan Ling Tian before leaving with their tails between their legs.
“Senior Brother, could it be that we’re to let it go at that?” One of the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples had a face full of unwillingness.
“What else can you do? I never expected him to have a Nascent Soul martial artist by his side.” The face of the Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple sank. He originally thought that the infant Goldfur Mouse could be easily obtained, but never had he expected that such an unforeseen event would occur.
“Senior Brother, your 100,000 silver seems to still be on their table. Should we go back and take it?” The other Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciple had a flash of light in his head, and he recalled this matter.
“Why don’t you go take it? I’ll give you half if you do.” The Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple glared at this Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciple, causing the latter to have a bitter smile on his face. He didn’t dare to make another sound.
“Dammit! If it wasn’t for that Nascent Soul martial artist being present, I’d surely make that violet-clothed young man die.” The Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple’s face was gloomy as he said this in a deep voice.
Suddenly, one of the Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples’ eyes flickered as he guessed, “Senior Brother, our Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples test is in five days….Do you think they came here for this? According to their accent, they don’t seem to be from the area near Black Bamboo City.”
“Right, Senior Brother, there really is such a possibility!” The other Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciple’s gaze lit up.
“Now that you mention it….There really is this possibility. Hmph! If you really have come to enter our Seven Star Sword Sect, then you’re delivering yourself to me, and I’ll surely make you die!” The eyes of the Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciple went cold. He seemed as if he wanted to catch and swallow Duan Ling Tian, and his icy cold voice seemed to come from a thaw hole that was filled with piercingly cold winds. Within it was a breathtaking killing intent.
“If he enters the Seven Star Sword Sect, that Nascent Soul Stage martial artist by his side will be unable to protect him.” The other two Seven Star Sword Sect outer court disciples started laughing.
Within the restaurant, after Xiong Quan revealed a strength at the Nascent Soul Stage, the crowd of customers instantly shut their mouths and went quiet, fearing that they would piss off the violet-clothed young man.
They didn’t doubt it in the slightest that if they dared to talk too much, based on the violet-clothed young man’s temper, he would definitely not hesitate in asking the Nascent Soul Stage martial artist by his side to make a move against them.
The violet-clothed young man feared the people behind the three Seven Star Sword Sect disciples, and thus didn’t dare go for the kill, but he wouldn’t fear them.
“Alright, Little Fei, don’t be angry.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Li Fei, then his gaze went cold as it swept past the customers. “How about this, so long as you say the word, I’ll ask Xiong Quan to throw them all out right away!”
Duan Ling Tian said this in a very casual manner, but in the ears of the crowd of customers, it was like the sound of thunder.
When they raised their heads, they noticed the middle-aged man that tossed the Seven Star Sword Sect disciples out earlier looking at them with a burning gaze….
Instantly, all the customers were in a commotion, as they directly put down the money for their food and wine and then left the restaurant as if they were fleeing.
In the next moment, only one table of people remained within the restaurant, as well as the dumbstruck manager and attendants of the restaurant…..
“Pfft!” Seeing this scene, Li Fei finally couldn’t hold back her laughter, and she laughed charmingly and enchantingly.
Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be dumbstruck. He wished for nothing more than to push Li Fei down and come down on her to his heart’s content….
“Scoundrel, what’re you looking at?” Li Fei rolled her eyes at Duan Ling Tian, and her tone was filled with shyness.
“Truly an attractive and coquettish little girl!” At this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt his lower regions get hot, and he forcefully endured his urges and took a deep breath.
“Big Sister Fei, Young Master has been entranced by you,” Ke Er lightly smiled and said to Li Fei, as she stroked the little gold mouse.
Li Fei’s beautiful face flushed to the point that it seemed as if it would drip blood when she heard Ke Er, and at the same time, she stretched out her hand to scratch Ke Er. “Little Sister Ke Er, what did you say…?”
“Ah….So itchy! Big Sister Fei, spare me! I didn’t say anything, I didn’t say anything.” Ke Er hurriedly pleaded for mercy.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse seemed to turn into a spectator when it saw this scene, and it joyfully watched Ke Er and Li Fei playing. Its pair of jade-green eyes spun as they flickered with a strange lustre.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, and his mood was slightly better.
“Seven Star Sword Sect…. Once I, Ke Er, and Li Fei enter it, we will be bound to encounter those three from before. I hope they can be sensible and won’t look for trouble with me again. Otherwise….Hmph!” Suddenly, seeming to have recalled something, a trace of a cold light flashed within Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, Imperial City.
“You….What did you say? You said my son is dead?” In a spacious courtyard house, an aged old man stared at the middle-aged man that stood before him, and his eyes revealed a dense killing intent.
“Yes.” The middle-aged man’s body shivered. The old man that currently stood before him was an existence that summoned wind and called for rain within the Jade Magnolia Trading Company, the Vice President of the entire Jade Magnolia Trading Company, Xia Dou.
An existence at the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage!
Enraged, a terrifying pressure was emitted from Xia Dou and enveloped the middle-aged man, causing his breathing to become difficult.
“Guang!” Xiao Dou exclaimed grievously, and his muddled eyes instantly emitted a bright light that flickered with a scarlet-red killing intent.
The middle-aged man’s face went pale as he felt the aura being emitted from Xia Dou’s body growing larger and larger, and he gritted his teeth as he endured. He believed that if this were to continue, it probably wouldn’t be long before he would collapse on the ground.
Finally, the raging aura that stretched out from Xia Dou’s body vanished, and the terrifying pressure vanished with it, allowing the middle-aged man to catch his breath and heave a sigh of relief.
“Speak, what happened? Who killed my son?” Xia Dou looked at the middle-aged man, and his eyes were filled with a dense, cold light that seemed to be waiting to swallow someone.
The middle-aged man let out a breath of cold air. At this moment, he had the illusion that instead of a person standing before him now, it was a venomous snake, a terrifying venomous snake that could make one die in an instant….
“Lord Xia Dou, the person who did it was an existence at the Void Prying Stage.” The middle-aged man caught his breath and slowly said, “This matter happened after the Ma Clan Auction House’s auction three months ago….”
Subsequently, the middle-aged man spoke of everything he learned from Black Wind City’s Ma Clan.
“A violet-clothed young man? Took out a 91% purity Origin Strengthening Pill?” Xia Dou’s face sank. When he heard this, even he couldn’t help but be surprised.
A medicinal pill with a purity of 91%….
In the past, in his opinion, this was something that was practically impossible to exist.
Now, he couldn’t help but be slightly afraid. If that person was able to take out such an Origin Strengthening Pill, did it mean that behind that person was a formidable alchemist?
Perhaps the middle-aged man discerned Xia Dou’s fear, and he added, “Lord Xia Dou, according to the Ma Clan, that Origin Strengthening Pill was something the young man obtained by chance….And he doesn’t have any relations to the alchemist that refined that Origin Strengthening Pill.”
Xia Dou heaved a sigh of relief when he heard this, and his eyes contained an awe-inspiring killing intent. “I’ll make a trip to the Black Wind City with you….No matter who it is that dared kill my son, even if I have to dig to the ends of the earth, I’ll still drag him out!”
