Remaining silent, Qin Wushuang sized this up person repeatedly: "I heard that underneath your cloak, you have a very ugly face. Is that true?"
That person said arrogantly: "I advise you to give up if you want to know where I am from just by looking at my face."
"No no." Qin Wushuang laughed, "I don't plan to discover where you are from. Even if you came from a prestigious place, in my Great Luo Empire and to me, it's a death sentence for trying to disturb the relationship between the Stargaze and the Dragon and Tiger sect. The same goes for trying to destroy this eastern alliance."
"The Nine Palace, Nine Raven Temple, and the Emperor Buddha Palace come after you together!"
Qin Wushuang asked with a cold smile: "Do you really think that you have the power to make the three Upper Ranking Empire send a punitive expedition to the Stargaze for you?"
"Ha ha, who knows. These three great Upper Ranking Empire would not wish to see an upstart Great Luo, nor another strong and powerful empire as a contender. Plus some benefits, they just might get together!"
Qin Wushuang laughed calmly: "So what, I've still decided to kill you!"
As he spoke, he shook the long whip loose in his hand. Indeed, this was the Fury Dragon Soul. As soon as he revealed this Void Martial Stage weapon, the entire inn was filled with a suffocating atmosphere.
Qin Wushuang said casually: "Head Shi, and all the other Heads, you guys have been watching all this time. You should just come out if you want to see a show."
Shi Chenglong and the others were stunned. Shi Chenglong had recognized Qin Wushuang's voice and said to others: "This guy is Qin Wushuang of the Stargaze Palace."
All of the heads who had not heard Qin Wushuang's voice or seen him before were shocked. Wasn't this Qin Wushuang part of the younger generation? Why was he emitting such strong aura?
"Head Shi, a while ago you two were engaged in conversation. This person was attempting to bewitch you for some time. Now, he refuses to admit it. I would like to ask you to be the witness."
Qin Wushuang smiled while he spoke. With these words, it would be impossible for Shi Chenglong and the others to keep staying in hiding.
Shi Chenglong laughed: "I wondered who it was, it's you, Qin Wushuang. It seems that you have greatly advanced with your strong aura."
As he spoke, he walked out while laughing and arrived at the balcony.
Qin Wushuang nodded: "Head Shi, it's a little inconvenient for me to make proper greetings right now, please forgive me."
Shi Chenglong said with a smile: "Don't worry. My dear Wushuang, this person was trying delude people with his lies. Earlier, he found me and said a bunch of threatening words to delude the Dragon and Tiger sect to create chaos. I did not believe him and ignored him."
This Shi Chenglong was extremely flexible. When he saw that the matter had progressed in this manner, he knew that the Stargaze Palace had eavesdropped on their conversation from before. Thus, he decided to shift away from the incoming crisis and protect the Dragon and Tiger sect. A moment ago, he had been neutral and noncommital in his response in his conversation with the cloaked man as he did not reveal a single trace of dissatisfaction toward the Stargaze Palace. Thus, from his standpoint, it would be easy for him to pull back the Dragon and Tiger sect.
After all, he did not speak rudely of the Stargaze or show his interest in joining the other force. Thinking back, he did feel somewhat fortunate.
Qin Wushuang knew that Shi Chenglong was anxious about keeping the Dragon and Tiger sect out of this matter. Instantly, he laughed: "Head Shi is a smart person. The Stargaze Palace understands this point very well. Only, regarding how this guy used frightening words to threaten people, I need you to tell us. This way, the Stargaze Palace will be able to carry out his execution with due process and let him die with no complaints."
Currently, Shi Chenglong only wanted to protect himself. Immediately, he revealed all the details of their conversation.
Qin Wushuang had heard most of the content of the conversation from Bao Bao. However, he did grasp some new information that Bao Bao had not told him.
"Did you hear that? I don't think Head Shi would not wrongfully accuse you, with him being a grandmaster!"
That person spat and said furiously: "A grandmaster? He deserves to be called a grandmaster? Cowardice, he is a coward afraid of getting involved and being forced to accept a compromise is what he is. I'm sure the Stargaze Palace will not let them go easily. Ha ha ha! Shi Chenglong, do you really think that by selling me out you will be able to suck up to the Stargaze?"
Shi Chenglong showed a somewhat embarrassed expression. Naturally, he did not sell him out. However, he could not deny it before Qin Wushuang. Or else, it would show that the Dragon and Tiger sect had kept this information to themselves.
However, after all, the older you were the wiser you became. Shi Chenglong said after rolling his eyes: "Humph, I planned to tell Head Zhuo during the alliance meeting. However, since Wushuang is here, I am sure that you are the one that exposed yourself. Don't try to blame others."
That person said with surprise: "You did not sell me out?"
Qin Wushuang said with a smile: "This is the so-called saying of if you don't want people to know, don't do it. Why would others need to report it?"
That person's body shook lightly. If Shi Chenglong did not expose him, then it was truly terrifying that Qin Wushuang knew about it! The information gathering skills of the Stargaze was this powerful?
"Humph, Qin Wushuang, so you are Qin Wushuang of the Stargaze?" In fact, this person had recognized Qin Wushuang. However, he was pretending to be stupid as another part of his strategy to prevent of exposing his identity.
Qin Wushuang smiled coldly: "So what if I am?"
Shi Chenglong laughed: "Dear Wushuang, your original appearance is much more handsome than this. Why go through the trouble of wearing a mask."
"Ha ha, Head Shi, of course I will show my original face when I deal with honest people. However, I will appear with my mask when dealing with such lowlifes."
Shi Chenglong laughed: "Indeed you are wise."
That person started to think rapidly: "It seems Shi Chenglong does not have the guts to resist the Stargaze Palace. I must stay alive. Even if I have to sell the spiritual key to the Nine Raven Temple and the Sky Travel Empire, forcing them to form an alliance, I will never submit this easily!"
Indeed, this guy was Luo Guiyun, the direct disciple of Gao Yue, the head of the Archaic Mysteries sect. All the other disciples who went to study at the Nine Palace had returned to the Archaic Mysteries sect, except for him. That was the crucial moment when Luo Guiyun was at the edge of breaking into the Advanced Stage. Thus, he had stayed alive!
After the annihilation of the Archaic Mysteries sect, Luo Guiyun had escaped from the Nine Palace. He had returned to the Archaic Mysteries sect and grabbed the spiritual key.
Since he was the head disciple of Gao Yue, he knew the location of the hidden spiritual key. Fortunately, that spiritual key had not been hidden inside those Archaic Palaces.
It was hidden in an extremely remote place in the mountain. In fact, Gao Yue had designed it this way in the case of elite warriors charging in to steal or to rob the spiritual key.
Because of this design, it allowed Luo Guiyun to take away the spiritual key easily after his return.
However, after Luo Guiyun had taken away the spiritual key, he had initially planned to take it and to disturb the eastern alliance meeting. Suddenly, he thought that it would not be beneficial to carry this object. Thus, he put the spiritual key back into its original place.
And then, he came alone to the Great Luo.
Initially, he planned to trick the Dragon and Tiger sect into rebelling against the Stargaze Palace. Then, he would persuade the people of the Nine Raven Temple and the Emperor Buddha Palace to send a punitive expedition to the Stargaze Palace. He would use them to suppress the rising Great Luo.
He would use all means even if it meant to use the spiritual key as equity.
Unexpectedly, his plan had encountered great failure right in the beginning. His plan had gone awry immediately in the Great Luo Empire and he had been caught by Qin Wushuang. It seemed that he could not escape.
"Humph, one can always trump up a charge against something? Even if that's the case, it's only a few joking words between me and Head Shi. I only tried to probe him. Could it be that the Stargaze Palace will kill at will with just a few words?" Luo Guiyun put his life on the line to deny everything.
Qin Wushuang laughed: "Joke? Head Shi, do you think he was joking?"
Shi Chenglong said with determination: "No, not at all. This person concealed his evil schemes and I am afraid that he did not only wish to disturb the eastern situation, he is suspected of trying to create a mess in all the human countries. Or else, why would he speak about the three Upper Ranking Empires."
That person laughed coldly: "Shi Chenglong, I have thoroughly experienced your lowly morals."
Shi Chenglong said lightly: "Do you think you deserve to talk about morals?"
Qin Wushuang nodded: "That's enough. Mister, if you have nothing else to say, then submit to execution!"
He coiled the Fury Dragon Soul and was about to make a move.
That person waved his hand: "Hold on!"
"Shut up." Qin Wushuang did not even stop and sent the Fury Dragon Soul toward that person. Suddenly, that person fell down from the balcony and dropped to the ground. He had used this move to try to escape. With a cold sneer, Qin Wushuang shook the whip and chased after him as his body leapt into the air.
At this moment, suddenly, a loud roar emerged from the streets. A lightning like light dashed to the skies and went after Luo Guiyun's falling body.
With the disappearance of the light, the Purple Flame Electric Beast had already pinned Luo Guiyun in his claws and was about to tear him into two pieces. Qin Wushuang shouted: "I need him alive!"
The Purple Flame Electric Beast finally remembered Qin Wushuang's earlier instructions as he immediately stopped.
Qin Wushuang approached closer and sealed the man's movements. Then, he laughed: "Since you are here, don't think of leaving!"
After he had finished speaking, he cupped his hands toward the upper levels of the inn: "Head Shi, please send my regards to other Heads."
When Shi Chenglong saw Qin Wushuang's skill and the lightning speed of that spiritual beast, he was feeling deeply depressed and at a loss. Hearing Qin Wushuang's farewells, he nodded reluctantly: "Sure."
A young disciple of the Stargaze Palace was this powerful. That spiritual beast had especially revealed that it possessed a speed as fast as lightning. With this skill combined with Qin Wushuang, it would be enough for them sweep across the east!
"Head Dragon, this Qin Wushuang is indeed formidable!" Behind him, the Head Tiger said with a sigh.
The other Heads were also silent. As they watched Qin Wushuang's departing figure, admiration, and despondency filled their eyes. Additionally, they were also feeling helpless and unwillingness.
With such demonic disciple at the Stargaze Palace, of course they would prosper. How could the Dragon and Tiger sect compete with them?
"With the prosperity of the Stargaze, it's reasonable for the Great Luo to rise." From Shi Chenglong's tone, there was a trace of disappointment and a trace of warning, "From now on, we cannot harbor rebellious thoughts. All actions will be carried out for the survival of the sect. Even if we are to submit, and be forced to bear the shame, we must do it. Any objections?"
Seeing Qin Wushuang and his spiritual beasts' power, finally, the other Heads had a clear understanding of the might of the Stargaze Palace. All of them nodded silently and did not utter a sound.
