Clouded by mists, from the top, this sheer cliff appeared like a bottomless abyss. Surrounded by a boundless ocean of mist, the depth and the things that resided beneath the cliff were unknown. One look at it would make one feel goosebumps all over their body.
And as if walking on a flat surface, Qin Wushuang soon descended four or five hundred meters.
Although he had only descended four or five hundred meters, when he raised his head, Qin Wushuang could no longer see the top. The mist pervaded the area.
From Qin Wushuang's observation, the vegetation on top of the cliff had been deliberately damaged. The person that fell should have used his hands to grab on it desperately. However, he had failed.
Yet, it still helped to decrease his falling momentum. Or else, the damaged vegetation should not appear like this.
Suddenly, after another one or two hundred meters, Qin Wushuang opened his eyes widely. Another dozen meters down, a pine tree had seemingly grown slanted. And something was hanging on the branch of that pine tree.
With a closer look, it was a person. From that shaped, it seemed to be Da Xi Ming.
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang was surprised, yet he did not dare to lower his guard. He carefully approached, and indeed, it was Da Xi Ming. Swaying back and forth, his body was stuck on the branch and his status was unknown.
Qin Wushuang felt his breath, and he could feel soft breathing. Overjoyed, he investigated a little of Da Xi Ming's condition and discovered that his wound was not caused by falling, but by the enemy's internal force. If Da Xi Ming did not have a robust and vigorous body, his corpse would most likely have already stiffened.
Apparently, he was able to maintain a trace of breath because of his solid foundation of a Stage Five Warrior of the Genuine Force.
Since Da Xi Ming's bones had not been displaced, it would not be a problem to move him. Qin Wushuang carried Da Xi Ming and used both of their belts to tie him onto his shoulder. Then, he ascended the cliff wall, step by step.
Da Xi Ming was unconscious, seemingly in a coma. Both of his hands drooped over Qin Wushuang's shoulder. With a glance, Qin Wushuang saw Da Xi Ming's hand was holding on something tightly.
Out of curiosity, Qin Wushuang freed one hand and opened Da Xi Ming's palm. It appeared to be a high-quality silk cloth. Inwardly, Qin Wushuang was shocked: "From the quality and the color of this material, it does not appear to belong to a lady. It is far different from what Da Xi Ming is wearing. Could it be that he had pulled this material off the enemy?"
Right now, saving his life was the priority. Qin Wushuang could not bother to think too much. He put away that material and continued to climb. His movements were visibly affected while carrying another person.
Fortunately, after climbing two or three hundred meters, vague shadows soon appeared in his view. A mooring rope was quickly thrown down, and Qin Wushuang borrowed the strength of the rope to consecutively kick off the wall and rapidly climb up the cliff.
After he had put Da Xi Ming on the ground, one of his palms pressed on the fatal acupoints on his back. Slowly, a wave of pure
He knew that Da Xi Ming had suffered severe internal injuries. The only way for him to regain consciousness was to inject Genuine Qi into him. Then, his life could come back.
Indeed, after the Genuine Qi had entered him, Da Xi Ming woke up after a moment: "Little Sis Xiu, Xiu was taken!"
"Big Brother Da Xi, calm down. Don't get too worked up." Qin Wushuang passed him another wave of Genuine Qi and suppressed Da Xi Ming's wild emotions.
Da Xi Heng walked over and said with a concerned voice: "Ming'Er."
"Patriarch Da Xi, he will be okay. Father, after these many days of searching, have you found the enemy's exact escape route?"
Qin Lianshan said: "This guy was extremely sly. I could not find any traces or clues. We used this area as the center and searched all possible escape routes. However, it was futile."
Qin Wushuang nodded: "Let everyone return to the Qin manor. No need for further investigation."
"Stop the search?" Both Qin Lianshan and Da Xi Heng were surprised.
"Since the enemy had the ability to beat Big Brother Da Xi down to the cliff, it would be easy for him to escape. Besides, many days have passed, those possible clues have most likely become useless. Stop the search."
"Wushuang, then your sister?" As a loving father, Qin Lianshan was extremely anxious.
If it was at the Qin manor, he had the confidence that the enemy would not have a chance to take his daughter. However, the area of the Great Cang Mountains was far too large, spanning thousand of miles.
"Father, you don't have to blame yourself. The enemy was powerful. He would always have a chance if he wanted to deal with my sister. Except if sister never goes out and stay hiding in the home forever."
He stood up and instructed: "Go down the mountain, there is nothing else worth searching here."
Then, he gave an order to prepare a good stretcher to take Da Xi Ming down.
Da Xi Ming's current injuries were only internal injuries plus exhaustion. As long as he was properly treated, combined with recuperation, he would be restored in ten days or half a month.
"Father, I would like to ask a question."
"Which shop is responsible for making our aristocratic clothing at Eastwood Town?"
"It's the Fang family. Their clothing shop has always been famous."
"Ok!" Qin Wushuang nodded and said, "I am going out."
After he had said, he left the Qin manor and went towards Fang's clothing shop. The shop was on the most lively street of the town.
When they saw Qin Wushuang had arrived, one of the guy from the shop immediately greeted him: "Young Master Qin, are you looking for Young Master Fang?"
"No, is your boss here?"
"Young Master Qin, the boss is currently not here. I can help you."
"Ok, take a look at this, is this material made from the shops at our town?" Qin Wushuang handed over that material where he had pulled out from Da Xi Ming's hand.
That service guy took it and looked for a moment. Then, he smiled: "No no, this is a very sophisticated material. The fabrics from our Eastwood Town is not that delicate. I can promise that this material did not come from our Town. This material would not appear in the entire River County."
"You sure?" Qin Wushuang asked with a deep voice.
"I am one hundred percent sure. I have at least this much understanding after having worked for the boss for more than a decade. This material is very delicate, at least, only those aristocrats from the State city would have this. Perhaps, it may have come from the Royal City."
Nodding, Qin Wushuang turned around and left, ignoring the guy's muttering.
Perhaps, this tiny clue that Big Brother Da Xi had held tightly in his hand was the only way to find his sister. Not a moment could be spared.
He must hurry and find the truth. With each day that passed, his sister would be in greater danger.
When he returned to the Qin manor, Da Xi Ming had become conscious. Apparently, he had already told the story about the material to Da Xi Heng and Qin Lianshan. They had already guessed most of the stories when they remembered how Qin Wushuang had asked about the material.
Everyone asked him when they saw him return: "How did it go?"
Qin Wushuang said: "Not from Eastwood Town."
Da Xi Heng nodded: "Of course not. Who else could hurt Ming'Er besides the Qin family?"
"Father, Patriarch Da Xi, I decided to search Southcloud State City."
"Southcloud?" Qin Lianshan frowned: "Wushuang, are you doubting the Xi Men Feudal Lords?"
"Before we get any clues or evidence on this issue, everyone is suspect. The Xi Men Feudal Lords obviously cannot escape suspicion since they had an old issue with Big Brother Da Xi. But, please don't worry, I will not make wild accusations and I won't let the murderer do what they want!"
When he said that, with a face full of anger, Qin Wushuang vowed with frustration: "Regardless of who had done it, I promise, he will feel nothing but regret for the rest of his life. I will definitely pay him back tenfold."
After he had finished speaking, he immediately turned around and left.
He went to the yard, where the three teams trained by Qin Wushuang had assembled.
"You guys, pay extra attention to protecting the Qin manor! Remember, in half a month, us Qin will no longer be a Wealthy Class, but a Royal family! The two thousand miles surrounding the Great Cang Mountains will become our feudal fiefdom! In our territory, how could we allow other little ones to do whatever they want?"
Qin Wushuang waved and jumped on a horse. He hurriedly rode out of the Qin manor towards the main road.
Inside the Xi Men Feudal Lords residence, Xi Men Yu also interrogated all the elite warriors in the family.
"I will ask again, is the missing case of the Missy from Eastwood Qin related to any of you?"
"Patriarch, without your order, how could we move on our own?"
"Yes, Patriarch, we had nothing to do with it."
That head guard also said: "Patriarch, since you were clear with your intention, I think our warriors should not be stupid enough to make enemies with the Eastwood Qin."
"Yes, I am just afraid that Yan'Er had encouraged someone of you to create some trouble. It's good that this issue had nothing to do with us. Everyone will sit tight and see how things go. I heard that the son of the Qin had already returned to Eastwood Town. Surely, there will be a rain of blood when he comes back and learns about this issue. Just wait and see, everyone."
"Patriarch, who do you think had done it?" the head guard suddenly asked.
Xi Men Yu sighed: "In these few years, we had many cases of missing girls in the Redwood Royal Territory. From what I see, it should only be the continuation of those missing cases."
Just as he was talking, one of the trusted aides hurried into the hall and said: "Patriarch, the son of the Qin is asking to see you."
The expression on Xi Men Yu's face changed. Inwardly, he was shocked at how fast Qin Wushuang had come.
He knew that the son of the Qin would undoubtedly direct their first suspicions toward the Xi Men Feudal Lords after this incident. He must spend some effort to explain this case. Regardless of his willingness, Xi Men Yu must take the time to explain if he didn't want trouble.
"I will meet with him." Xi Men Yu waved his hand and motioned everyone to control their emotions and not reveal their hostility. If elite family warriors rushed out at this time, it would cause unnecessary misunderstanding.
As he walked out in large steps, Qin Wushuang was already impatient.
"Little Brother Qin, let's talk privately." Xi Men Yu walked out of the door and led Qin Wushuang away.
When they came at a quiet corner, Xi Men Yu finally said: "I knew that you would come to the Xi Men Feudal Lords. However, I only have one thing to say to you; the Xi Men Feudal Lords had nothing to do with your sister's missing case. I promise with my life!"
"Oh?" Showing an annoyed face, Qin Wushuang said, "Patriarch Xi Men, you are not lying to me with your words?"
"Absolutely not. I've already interrogated them. No elite warriors that had the ability to harm Young Master Da Xi from the family had the time to do so. And my son, Xi Men Qian is still reflecting on himself. All the more reason why he could not have gone to cause trouble at Eastwood Town!"
'Good, if that's the case, I would like to ask a favor from Patriarch Xi Men, alright?"
"No need for courtesies. Just tell me if you need something. No discord, no concord, how could it be a favor since we know each other?"
"Alright, Patriarch Xi Men is a straightforward guy. I would like to ask Patriarch Xi Men to invite all owners of the clothing shop from the Southcloud State City to your residence. All of them must come! Could you do this, Patriarch Xi Men?'
Stunned, Xi Men Yu could not understand what Qin Wushuang intended. However, without hesitation, he nodded: "This is easy. Give me two hours. Before noon, I will bring everyone. I promise all of them will be here!"
"Good!" Qin Wushuang nodded and said, "Then please hurry, Patriarch Xi Men."
