Bang, bang bang!
Each time Old Man Ji Yin moved his finger, a life would die by his hand.
Instantly, a dozen of lives had been lost!
As the bloody mist dispersed, the gruesome scene revealed an area filled with distorted and exploded bodies.
Each of those guests in the Eastwood Town inn wore a fearful expression as if they had seen a ghost. They all tried to escape by jumping through the windows or walls.
Old Man Ji Yin said coldly: "Trying to leave?"
He shook both of the sleeves and continuously shot out white lights. It was as if all the activities from the Heaven and Earth were hiding in the sleeve, suddenly, a giant destructive energy wave rushed out like a violent wave.
Suddenly, the entire Eastwood Town inn exploded—
And it vanished into a puff of smoke, as if it had been extracted from this world into dust!
There had been at least hundreds of people including the waiters and the guests. In the blink of an eye, they had vanished into a puff of smoke along with the inn.
Sneering eerily, Old Man Ji Yin walked forward.
"There is still the oil mill, and other businesses of the Eastwood Qin…" Old Man Ji Yin kept thinking.
Currently, Qin Wushuang was taking a walk with Emissary Liu and the Martial Saint at the martial practice ground. Suddenly, all the expressions on their faces changed as they looked towards the Eastwood Inn in surprise.
The color on their faces immediately changed.
"Let’s go take a look!" Qin Wushuang took the lead.
After glancing at each other, both Emissary Liu and the Martial Saint followed him.
In front of the oil mill belonged to the Qin, revealing a gloomy expression, Old Man Ji Yin held his palm upward and a ball of ghostly fire appeared. He raised his arm and threw fiery ball toward the giant oil mill. Pushed by the momentum, that fire from his palm turned into a sea of fire arching down.
Instantly, the giant oil mill was devoured by this raging sea of fire. Sounds of screaming and miserable cries could be heard as dozen of workers inside the oil mill became surrounded by the fire and burned to death.
"Haha, the taste of an infernal hell is good, right? If you want to blame someone, blame the fact that you are at the Eastwood Town, blame yourselves for working for the Qin!" Old Man Ji Yin said with a tone that was filled with hatred.
Suddenly, his face turned cold. Flashes of joyous light lit up and he looked behind him.
Shooting forward, Qin Wushuang glared at Old Man Ji Yin. Watching that sea of fire, he hissed: "Old Man Ji Yin?"
With a solemn expression, coldness shot out from the eyes of Old Man Ji Yin: "You are an offspring of the Qin?"
"Old Ji Yin devil, you want to cause trouble for the Qin, then why are you killing these innocent civilians?" A noticeable flame of anger could be heard in Qin Wushuang’s tone.
Uncle Shui, the manager of this giant oil mill was the most loyal servant who had worked for the Qin for more than a dozen of years. Inwardly, Qin Wushuang felt both pain and hatred.
"Innocent?" Old Man Ji Yin said coldly: "Anyone who has a relation to the Qin is not innocent. Child of the Qin, did my head disciple, Li Wuji, come here?"
At this moment, both the Martial Saint and Emissary Liu had arrived.
Emissary Liu shouted: "Old Man Ji Yin, hear me out."
Sneering, Ji Yin sized the Martial Saint and Emissary Liu and said: "Another two Upper Sky Warriors? Good, I have three Upper Sky warriors
to sacrifice to my head disciple. Wuji, you won’t be lonely on your journey to the Underworld!"
Apparently, with his devilish tone accompanied by flickering eyes, this Old Man Ji Yin seemed to ready to go out of control at anytime. Both Qin Wushuang and the Martial Saint fixed their gaze on him.
Yet, Emissary Liu shouted: "Ji Yin, before you make a move, you better know who I am!"
"Identity?" Ji Yin smiled creepily, "What is so special about your identity?"
The Martial Saint shouted: "This Emissary Liu is the Emissary for the Star Gauze Palace. Ji Yin devil, although your sect may be tyrannical, do you dare to defy the will of the Star Gauze Palace?"
"Star Gauze?" Stunned, Old Man Ji Yin sized Emissary Liu and asked: "You are really from the Star Gauze Palace?"
"Of course! Ji Yin, I don’t know what grudge you hold with the Qin. However, before you make your move, I advise you to wait a while. A few days ago, I had already sent a message to the Star Gauze Palace. Someone from the Five Palace Masters will surely come to judge your crimes."
It was true that Old Man Ji Yin could not dare to act wildly before the name of the Star Gauze. Expressionless, Old Man Ji Yin apparently fell into deep thoughts.
He must admit that he could not resist against any of the five Palace Masters. Each one of them had enough strength to tear him apart.
The power from the Star Gauze Palace didn't just come from the existence of the Five Great Palace Masters. Overall, they were known to be invincible.
In the Great Luo Empire, whoever dared to defy the Star Gauze would be looking for their own deaths. Old Man Ji Yin was not an exception.
"A Palace Master from the Star Gauze would come to this poor place? Emissary Liu, I am curious, why is that? Could it be that this Eastwood Qin is somehow related to the Star Gauze Palace?"
Enraged, Emissary Liu shook his head: "This Marquis Wushuang was the victor of the national martial arts exam in the Great Luo Empire. The Star Gauze Palace has asked for him. This time, the Five Palace Masters had sent me to pick him up to meet them. Ji Yin, your head disciple, Li Wuji came to kill and was killed because of his lack of skills. He dug his own grave. If you insist on continuing, you will not escape the same fate by angering the Palace Masters!"
The Ji Yin Old Man’s face sunk: "Difficult from escaping the same fate? Just hearing your threatening words, I will put my life on the line to defy you. Today, I will also send you to your death!"
The color changed on the face of Emissary Liu, he shouted: "Ji Yin, if you remain stubborn, not to mention of killing yourself, hundreds people from your sect will for sure, be destroyed!"
Although Old Man Ji Yin felt frustrated inwardly, he must weigh the odds repeatedly. If he killed these three, the entire Ji Yin sect would most likely be destroyed in return.
For himself, he could escape to the other Empires. It would not be a problem to seek shelter as a great powerhouse with his strength.
However, within the Ji Yin sect, there were still six of his favourite disciples. Besides Li Wuji, there were six other Upper Sky disciples in which he must consider them.
Once he became a fugitive after killing, naturally he could not take care of those six disciples.
And this Emissary Liu did mention that he had already delivered a message back to the Star Gauze Palace. For sure, it would not be difficult to find out that he was the culprit behind it.
In that case, it would be impossible if he tried to take those six Upper Sky disciples from the Ji Yin mountain.
Weighing the gains and losses, he knew the odds of losing six of his disciples by killing these three. Thus, he worked hard to suppress the anger inside his heart.
He thought: "Now, even the Star Gauze Palace stepped up to protect this kid. If I had killed him today, how could anyone from the sect survive? Of course, this kid would not escape a death sentence after admitting to killing my head disciple. Only, today is not the right time. Wait until I return to the Ji Yin sect and send away those my trusted disciples out of the country, then I can come back to slaughter the entire Qin family. At that time, after I have finished, I could just seek shelter at the Heavenly Lake Empire. Then, what could the Star Gauze Palace do to me?"
With this idea in mind, the old demon, Ji Yin revealed a strange smile as he complimented: "No wonder you are the Emissary from the Star Gauze Palace. Such courage, such temperament. I am deeply impressed! Since it’s the Star Gauze Palace, I can let it go. However, since that kid had killed my disciple, he must pay, right?"
He was planning to withdraw and erase the doubt of the other. This way, he could easily transfer his six trusted disciples away without being watched.
Once he finished transferring them, then it would be the time for him to slaughter the entire Qin!
Qin Wushuang sneered: "Pay something? Have you not killed these many people that worked for the Qin, and destroyed my businesses? Are you not going to pay something?"
Old Man Ji Yin jeered: "How could these stupid countryside people compare to my Upper Sky disciple?"
Such an arrogant attitude made Qin Wushuang extremely infuriated. Inwardly, he was set on killing him. Only, he knew that with his current strength, he was far from competing with this Ji Yin Old Man. It was not easy to seek revenge today!
Of course, Emissary Liu would not allow their grudge to rise to the next level. He immediately jumped out and mediated: "Ji Yin, Marquis Wushuang, I have an idea, why not hear it out?"
"Speak." Ji Yin Old Man smiled eerily.
"The grudge between you guys only arose from little matters. Now, both sides have suffered casualties. Yes, it is better to squash enmity rather than keeping it alive. Regarding the truth, you two should come with me to the Star Gauze Palace and tell the exact stories before the Five Palace Masters, so you can turn hostility into friendship. Even if this grudge does not get resolved, regarding how to seek revenge, it would be best to formulate some solutions. You must not use innocent people as your targets, so?"
This idea appeared reasonable on the surface. But it was in fact, much more favorable toward Qin Wushuang. After all, there was a huge gap between the current Qin Wushuang and Old Man Ji Yin. He could not kill both Ji Yin and his disciples.
How could Old Man Ji Yin not understand the meaning behind it. Yet, he did not reveal his thoughts. With his own idea in mind, of course, he did not bother to refuse. Thus, feigning civility, he said, "Since the Five Palace Masters are stepping forward, I will let it go. It’s a deal, Emissary Liu."
"Marquis Wushuang, what do you say?" Emissary Liu asked.
Of course, Qin Wushuang would not believe that the strange, and vicious Old Man Ji Yin was someone to be easily persuaded. Something else will happen. However, it would not be a bad thing to get Old Man Ji Yin out of the Bai Yue country. He nodded: "Since you have spoken, I will not disagree!"
Old Man Ji Yin sneered and suddenly, he said: "If that’s the case, I will return to the Great Luo Empire this instant. Emissary Liu, I will see you at the Star Gauze Palace!"
Emissary Liu answered: "Of course."
Like a whirlwind and the steaming smoke, the body of Old Man Ji Yin vanished into the air as he left.
Hard to fathom as he had come and go like the wind. Immediately, the tension in the bodies of the three Initial Stage Warriors loosened when the pressure disappeared. Indeed, this Old Man Ji Yin had released too much power.
Even while they were talking, his power was strong enough that they did not dare to afford not being vigilant.
