The general was as capable as befitting someone whom Jun Linyuan had taught himself . In less than five minutes, the torture made the shorty wish he was dead .
He gave Feng Wu everything she wanted to know .
“Someone found the Flying Guillotine and put a price on your head . The reward is as much as 100,000 top-grade spiritual stones!”
100,000? Top-grade spiritual stones?
Feng Wu rubbed his chin . “I didn’t know I’m that expensive . ”
General Chang glanced at Feng Wu . “The Flying Guillotine always charges a lot . 100,000 is just slightly higher than the standard price . ”
Feng Wu didn’t know what to say .
“These three are Spiritual Elders, and are Levels 7, 8, and 9 respectively .
“This is the second attack . I won’t be surprised if there’s a third wave . You better be prepared . ”
Feng Wu asked, “There’s more?!”
General Chang nodded . “The mission is to kill you, but it’s failed . With these three dead, the Flying Guillotine will reevaluate you .
“They’ll reassess your threat level and value, so as to raise the price and give the job to Spiritual Lords, who charge more . ”
“How many spiritual stones does a Spiritual Lord normally charge for a job?” Feng Wu frowned a little .
She was used to plotting against people all the time, not the other way round .
“You’re not important enough for a Spiritual Lord yet . They won’t take just any job, given how high their asking price is – it won’t just be double the amount . ”
Feng Wu was relieved . “But a bunch of Spiritual Elders will be a lot to handle, too . ”
Feng Wu secretly rejoiced, feeling lucky that she had snapped up General Chang . Otherwise, she didn’t know what could have happened tonight .
She could ask for Grand Secretary Fang’s help, but she couldn’t go to him all the time .
All of a sudden, Feng Wu’s eyes flickered .
“Did the Zuo family send them?” asked Feng Wu .
General Chang shook his head . “They’ll never reveal information on their clients, or no one will hire them again . ”
Feng Wu smiled . Although she had no evidence, not everyone had 100,000 spare spiritual stones lying around .
Only someone who hated her to the core would be willing to pay such a huge amount .
The Zuo family was her instinctive guess . It had to be them and no one else .
Feng Wu smiled . “They can’t reveal their clients, but —”
She grinned at the shorty . “If other people can put a price on me, can I do it to them?”
General Chang glanced at Feng Wu, amazed by her quick reaction .
The short assassin smirked . “Once you’re on the list, you can’t turn it around, or it’ll disrupt order in the assassination circle . ”
That made sense .
If one side put a price on their rival, and the other side did the same, there would be a price war, and things would get messy . The organization would gain profits in the short term, but its long term development would be hampered .
“Alright —” Feng Wu was able to pick up the implication immediately . “I can’t put a price on them, but someone else can, right?”
The shorty nodded, and couldn’t help but pity the people who had hired him .
This terrifying teenage girl wasn’t as harmless and weak as assessed by his organization .
Feng Wu didn’t know what Chang San did, but the tough assassin had just become very obedient .
Their organization was a very secretive one, and people couldn’t just walk into their stronghold . They would need directions .
