Tang could hear, he murmured, "Since you are about to die, I might as well tell you my identity. You’ve heard the news of how the Third Prince’s soul was killed, then the son of Xiao Yao Hou was also killed, right? Aren’t those news enough to tell you that Governor Wu is worthless in my eyes?"
Instantly, Master Tang’s body froze. His desperate eyes revealed that there was only one thought in his head.
Oh my god!
Why did I provoke this monster!
Sadly, time cannot be reversed.
Since he has already offended Ling Xian, Ling Xian naturally wouldn’t allow him to live. Using his fingernails that were sharp like knives, he slowly sliced across Master Tang throat. A line of blood appeared.
Fresh blood quickly began to spray. Master Tang’s eyes widened as he collapsed to the ground, no longer breathing.
"Oh, my heavens, who is this person? He dared to kill Master Tang? I thought he simply wanted to steal Master Tang’s storage pouch!"
"I’ve been alive for so many years, yet this is the first time someone dared to kill someone from the Wu Palace. This will cause chaos for a while."
"Of course. Governor Wu is the Emperor’s real little brother. I heard they have a very good relationship!"
"This person got himself into trouble. There is no way Governor Wu will let this go."
Seeing the death of Master Tang, everyone was bewildered. Even Lin Qing Yi was full of apprehension. Luckily, she knew Ling Xian well, so she was able to quickly collect herself. After walking to his side, she whispered, "As an oblation to the Wu Palace, his background isn’t a weak one. Ling Xian, you killed another nobility."
"You are completely right. Part of the soul of the Third Prince, two sons of two nobles, plus this Master Tang before me here, everyone I’ve killed belongs to the upper class. Could it be… I was born to challenge those high up in society?" Ling Xian shook his head.
Just like he said, ever since he came to the Zhou Dynasty, as many as 20 foundational cultivators have crumbled under his palm. Within those 20, four were high-profile figures. This kind of behavior was unimaginable if these were like the olden days when he was still in the meditational stage.
But now, Ling Xian kills foundational cultivators as if cutting grass and kills nobility as if farming pigs.
One has to admit that since the beginning of time, Ling Xian was the only one to accomplish such feat with such graceful attacks!
"If you continue doing this, you will get a nickname soon," Lin Qing Yi sighed.
"What nickname?" Ling Xian was startled.
"What else? The Nobility Killer of course." Lin Qing Yi shook her head helplessly. Other than worry, she also blamed herself. After all, Ling Xian was doing this all for her.
"That… sure is accurate." Ling Xian bitterly smiled. "Let’s go. It won’t be long until the city guards get here. Before our identities are revealed, we better get going."
"Yes, or else we won’t get out of the City of Yun Xiao," Lin Qing Yi agreed, knowing that if today’s news spread, it will cause more disturbance.
"Wait a second." Ling Xian beamed. Concentrating on Master Tang with his mind, the storage pouch that was tied to his waist immediately flew up and entered Ling Xian’s own storage pouch.
This pouch contained all the wealth Master Tang ever collected, including the invaluable Water Taming Pearl that Ling Xian couldn’t get off his mind.
Seeing Ling Xian taking Master Tang’s storage pouch, Lin Qing Yi suddenly remembered. "Right. I forgot about his storage pouch. As a seventh realm alchemist, his riches must be startling."
"Yeah, the Water Taming Pearl alone is a great reward already." Ling Xian smiled satisfyingly. "Let’s go."
He then walked out the door under everyone’s gaze. Ling Qin Yi followed behind him.
However, as the two exited the auction ground, they found themselves amongst a crowd of people, where every single one of them was exuding a vigorous amount of energy. They formed a circle that looped around the entire Artifact Trading Convention center, making it inescapable.
Just then, a calm but murderous voice spoke.
"I am the commander of the City of Yun Xiao. I have been waiting here for a long time to send you on your way."
