Chapter 673 – A Very Important Gossip
“What?” “Young master Song Tao is dead?” When the Master of Black Wind City Lord heard this news, his first reaction was to suspect that he had heard the wrong thing.
Young Master Song Tao, who was a heaven stage expert and had two heaven stage guards, had finished his meal here. When he returned to the manor, he had been beheaded without a sound. In Black Wind City, other than himself and a few heaven stage warriors who were on good terms with Young Master Song Tao, who else could kill Young Master Song Tao?
If you can’t beat him, won’t you run?
If the three of them returned to their city lord’s mansion, the distance between them would only be twenty kilometers. With their maximum speed, they would only need a minute to escape.
Could it be that the three of them couldn’t hold on for even a minute, and they were going to be slaughtered?
What was most inconceivable to the Master of Black Wind City Lord was that the killer who killed Young Master Song Tao did not escape. Instead, he leisurely entered the Mercenary Guild and used the heads of Young Master Song Tao and two guards to exchange for a bounty … If that wasn’t the case, he would have thought that Young Master Song Tao was enjoying the beautiful lady from the Music Breast Clan that he had sent him!
“The scene has been searched. There are no abnormal signs of a battle.” General Jin Feng, the Master of Black Wind City Lord’s most capable subordinate, reported with a gloomy face, “Including the pretty girl that the City Lord gifted to Young Master Song Tao, all four of them were killed in one move.”
“Killed in one shot?” The Master of Black Wind City Lord’s brows twitched. Even he found it difficult to accomplish such a feat.
“The heads of Young Master Song Tao and his two bodyguards couldn’t receive any damage due to exchanging bounties with the Mercenary Guild. However, I suspect that the other party has strong control abilities. All three of them were beheaded. Only the escaping right-wing Pang Ke was cut in half by the enemy’s sharp weapon, and his head was decapitated. As for the beautiful girl from the Music Breast Clan, she was the same … It is worth noting that although her clothes were torn, she did not suffer any rape. This subordinate guessed that the other party was either accompanied by a woman, or her views on beauty were different from ours. ” General Jin Feng reported all the details.
“I just want to know who did it!” The Master of Black Wind City Lord felt like his head was about to burst out of his chest. After such a bloody incident had occurred in his own city, how could the Master of Paksong clan let this go?
“City lord, the Mercenary Guild has taken the name of protection and has refused to reveal the information of the recipient.” General Jin Feng said he couldn’t find out.
“Didn’t you use my City Lord privilege?” The Master of Black Wind City Lord was enraged.
“The Mercenary Guild refused to reveal it even use the privilege.” General Jin Feng replied.
“What?” The Master of Black Wind City Lord was stunned. Even his privileges as the City Lord couldn’t do anything? This was truly unfathomable!
“The Mercenary Guild has a privacy protection rule for the bounty recipient. That bounty recipient applied for personal information protection, so unless the Master of Paksong clan comes in person and asks for a bounty hunt, we will not be able to find the information of the bounty recipient even if we use our privileges.” General Jin Feng nodded slightly. He was sure that the progress of the investigation would be tricky.
“Then we can only wait for that old man, Bai Song, to slaughter our way over here?” The Master of Black Wind City Lord was enraged. He knew he needed to remain calm, but he could not calm himself down after what had happened.
“I had investigated and found a few suspects. In fact, a black clothed man dressed as a thief is the most suspicious because he is the only one who cannot confirm his identity. At that time, he brought two special female guards into the Mercenary Guild, and after him, a few people entered the Mercenary Guild, but none of them were the recipient.” General Jin Feng paused for a moment before coughing softly, “However, this human thief’s strength is rather low. He might only be at the third rank of the Earth Stage. Even though his two female guards are on high ground, they are far away from the Heaven Stage. It’s impossible for them to kill a Heaven Stage like Young Master Song Tao …”
“You mean, he picked up the head?” “Another Heaven Ranked expert killed Young Master Song Tao and left his corpse. This human thief with low strength just happened to discover him, so he came to the Mercenary Guild to claim his reward?” The Master of Black Wind City Lord was not a fool. Even though he was angry, he understood a lot of things.
“If that’s really the case, I feel that there is a high possibility that someone wants to frame us.” General Jin Feng stopped talking after he finished speaking.
“That’s right, we did take advantage of the distribution of the loot last time, plus the black market is booming …” “It’s normal for someone to be envious …”
A cold light flashed in the eyes of the Master of Black Wind City Lord.
With a wave of his hand, he ordered, “Report the situation to the Bai Song Sect. Describe in detail the situation and the analysis of the case.” That old man Bai Song is no fool. It’s not going to be easy for someone to get him to fight us! Of course, we also need to prepare with both hands. On the one hand, we need to investigate the real culprit quickly, and it would be best to start with that weak human thief and see who is generous enough to not buy treasures to protect themselves with, and on the other hand, we need to report it to the Emerald Lord.
Naturally, General Jin Feng accepted the order and went ahead to develop all his manpower. He was looking for a human thief who had two female guards with him.
At this time, Yue Yang had already changed back to be a single person.
Taking the heads of Young Master Song Tao and the others to receive the bounty, he deliberately called out the War God Guard Ladies as companions to divert the enemy’s attention.
Moreover, he had used the identity of a human thief to show off his strength as a third rank Earth Realm master. He had been especially cautious when he had walked in front of the patrolling guards and tavern mercenaries, letting them ‘see’ his strength.
When he returned to his human form, he only had the strength of a human small businessman.
That would be very safe!
No one would doubt him. And no one would believe that a small human businessman who wasn’t even an Earth Stage cultivator could actually kill three Heaven Stage cultivators … Even madmen wouldn’t think so!
Take your time to find the heaven stage expert you thought!
Yue Yang whistled all the way back to his reserved hotel to rest.
He was satisfied with what he had gained tonight. The only thing that he felt slightly regretful about was that the heads of the two guards were not worth much. Perhaps it was because they had been guards for a long time, but their reward was only ten million gold. It was only a fifth of that Young Master Song Tao’s reward.
The Mercenary Guild placed a heavy tax on Yue Yang’s seventy million reward. Together with the application for information protection, the actual reward that Yue Yang received was only sixty million.
A total of ten million had been taken away by the Mercenary Guild.
If this was the case, if Yue Yang’s personal data could not be protected, then who would still dare to exchange his head for a bounty?
Of course, it didn’t matter even if the Mercenary Guild leaked their personal information, because Yue Yang’s registration was on the Quasi-Earth Class Jun Wu Ye, a travelling merchant from the Western Heaven Realm.
Who knew Jun Wu Ye?
Besides the round head Bao Gu, who had heard of this name, Yue Yang hadn’t had the chance to tell a third person his name… If he took another step back, even if the round head Bao Gu knew that Jun Wu Ye had committed the crime, he wouldn’t suspect Yue Yang. Who would believe that a human traveling businessman who didn’t even have Earth-ranked strength could kill three heaven-ranked warriors, including Young Master Song Tao?
After obtaining sixty million bounties, Yue Yang was very happy to rest in the Grimoire World and sleep until she woke up naturally.
The current him no longer had any pressure on money.
Sure enough, robbing money came quickly!
Under the half-elf maid girl, he had a beautiful breakfast, then changed into a more popular warrior suit in Black Wind City and swaggered out of the hotel.
“So, it’s Brother Jun, good afternoon.” Originally, he had been boasting to the people around him, but as soon as he saw Yue Yang leaving, he immediately came up to him and greeted him with a hand salute. He then asked in a mysterious manner, “Brother Jun, I presume you don’t know about the earth-shaking event that happened last night?”
“What?” Yue Yang pretended not to know, his manner was very cooperative.
“Young master Song Tao is dead! He was beheaded on the spot! He was killed in one blow!” It was as though he had seen it with his own eyes. He made a beheading gesture with his hand around his neck, then demonstrated his’ prophetic ability ‘to Yue Yang and lowered his voice. “What did I say yesterday?” Yesterday in the auction house, he had acted so arrogantly, causing the Heaven Stage powerhouses to feel displeased. At noon last night, he began to chase and kill in the City Lord’s Mansion. Although Young Master Song Tao had the strength of a Heaven Stage, how could he be compared with a mysterious Sky Stage powerhouse! However, under the protection of the two guards, they only managed to escape for twenty kilometers. Before they could hide in the villa, they were killed by the mysterious heaven class … I’ve heard that the funniest thing is that the Heaven Stage is like an ant who kills an ant and dares to leave. The most amusing thing is that the Heaven Stage ant who kills an ant who dares to leave, dares to leave … Young master Song Tao’s head is discovered by a lucky thief and his two female companions. It’s a pity that I had a feast with Brother Ma last night. Otherwise, these tens of millions of gold coins would have been left in my pocket! ”
“So that’s how it is!” Yue Yang revealed an expression of sudden enlightenment and expressed pity, “I missed the bounty of tens of millions just like that!”
“That’s right!” The round head Bao Gu was also a bit disappointed, but he quickly regained his composure and said, “This matter will definitely not be over. How could the Sect Leader Bai Song, just sit by and watch his beloved be killed? He will definitely come to Black Wind City to investigate. Perhaps there will be a Heaven Ranked War.”
“Since that’s the case, I’ll stay here and continue watching the show!” Yue Yang smiled and nodded.
“If Brother Jun doesn’t stay here and watch, then that would be a waste …” “Come, let’s go to the tavern and have a drink. I also have some news that came from an acquaintance who worked for the Master of City. It’s said that this matter …” He looked around, lowered his voice, and whispered into Yue Yang’s ears: “I’m afraid this matter is related to the mayor, but you have to be careful when you speak of it. I think Brother Jun is a trustworthy person, or else you will never dare to bring it up.”
“Brother Bao, please rest assured. However, I never thought that Brother Bao would be so resourceful. Even the Master of City’s residence is present. I’m really impressed!” Yue Yang flattered her and almost flew into the air.
In the distance, a giant mammoth riding in luxurious clothing came over. It was Master Barton, who looked like a pig.
Master Barton had no memory of Yue Yang.
He had forgotten about it.
As long as that eccentric and gorgeous female servant intentionally glanced at Yue Yang. To be able to find Yue Yang among tens of thousands of people on the streets, this eye of discernment was truly amazing. When Yue Yang lifted his gaze and looked at her, she had lowered her eyes and didn’t meet Yue Yang’s gaze. She seemed to know that if she looked at him, Yue Yang would have sensed his presence.
“This guy is Master Barton, nicknamed the White Pig. Although he is a jeweler on the surface, he is actually a slave trader and the City Lord’s number two henchman.”
The round head Bao Gu did not dare to say anything. It waited until the mammoth mount was far away before fiercely spitting towards the ground.
Yue Yang estimated that Bao Gu and Lord Barton also had a bit of a grudge.
It was just that he was too weak to resist.
Yue Yang changed the topic and asked, “Brother Bao, what good stuff does the auction house have today?”
This question was correct. The round head Bao Gu, who liked to brag and brag about himself, immediately went on and on. He introduced all the functions and prices of the various items, as well as his personal evaluation, to Yue Yang … Yue Yang’s left ear went in and out of his right ear. He was not interested in ordinary things, but the name Bao Gu mentioned made his heart tremble slightly.
“There aren’t many good things in the recent auction items. Generally, good things are stored in the annual auction.” You don’t know who this year’s finale slave is. You definitely won’t be able to think of it and probably never even heard of it. But her name is definitely not ordinary in our Southern Heaven Realm! She was Captain of the Ranging Flame Bandit Group, a female giant who had obtained the Dragon Bloodline Inheritance! Allegedly, in order to obtain the reward of 530 million gold, in order to catch her, ten Heaven Stage Level 4 teamed up, and finally succeeded. You said ordinary heaven stage? A Tier 1 Heavenly Grade like Young Master Song Tao was simply giving away food. As long as that female giant held out her hand, the egg yolk of Young Master Song Tao would explode out … Of course, it was impossible for Young Master Song Tao to surround and attack the flames right now. Even his brain was moving! “One billion, if I had one billion, I would definitely sell the female giant Raging Flame, what a pity …”
In the end, that silly female giant Raging Flame was captured by the clown?
Yue Yang’s face did not change, but he was warier of the clown. It seemed that he had underestimated the clown!
