On the contrary, Black Panther was calmer: "Young Master, before taking out those guys at the Dispersed Praying Mountain, it is necessary to take out this guy downstairs that is deluding the people with lies. If he keeps talking, I am afraid more people will believe it. Even if we have conducted this business unknown to people's knowledge, it will affect the reputation of the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect."
Murderous intentions emerged from Luo Ting's eyes. As he fixed his gaze outside the window, he saw specks of safflower that appeared to be dark red Indian Azalea. This bloody red color evoked a more vigorous murderous intention in Luo Ting's eyes.
"Black Panther, go do some investigation. See who is spreading the rumors, I do not wish to see this person live past next day's morning sun!"
Luo Ting gave the orders coldly. Black Panther immediately nodded: "Young Master, I will carry it out now! Regardless of who he is, I promise I will make him disappear without a trace."
Being Luo Ting's most trusted elite warrior, besides possessing great power, this Black Panther was also extremely familiar with different channels. Regardless of the location, to him, it was an extremely simple task to make a freelance martial artist disappear.
After watching Black Panther disappear, Luo Ting felt incredibly jittery. Such jitters was something he had never experienced before, being a son blessed by the gods.
Born in the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect, he was born with a golden spoon in his mouth. From the start of his training to his teenage years, he was treated like a precious gem wherever he went. It was because everyone knew the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect were grooming this young man with extreme attention. They were nurturing him towards the position of those Honored Daoist.
While he carried such identity, from his childhood to adulthood, Luo Ting had naturally never experienced any ill treatments. He would not even need to bother with anything. He only needed to play the character of a son blessed by the gods.
His only frustration had come from Mu Rong Xu. Currently, this form of frustration had caused his entire attitude to go off balance.
Initially, he thought it would be easy as a flipping his hand for him head out from the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect to deal with Qin Wushuang, someone from the human countries.
However, half a month of time had passed. Not to mention Qin Wushuang's presence, he did not even catch a glimpse of his shadow. Although one could not refute the plan he had made was treacherous, it seemed that it was destined to go against his wish. The human countries in which they had viewed as a plain level of ground in the past now seemed like a deep abyss. One after another, those freelance martial artists had died at the Dispersed Praying Mountain.
Even freelance martial artist at the Profound Void Martial Stage, someone like Kong Dai and Xue Yue, had died in grievance at the Dispersed Praying Mountain. One could imagine that the strength of those behind the ambushes had been beyond ordinary.
Even for Luo Ting, before finding the right strategy, he would not rush in recklessly. Since the enemy was capable of killing elite warriors such as Kong Dai and Xue Yue who were at the Profound Void Martial stage, perhaps they also had the skill to kill Luo Ting.
Those freelance martial artists Profound Void Martial Stage was somewhat weaker than Luo Ting's, a son blessed by the gods. Regardless of equipment or other aspects, they were at a disadvantage.
However, Luo Ting would absolutely not have the courage if he was asked to head towards the Dispersed Praying Mountain.
Because of this aspect, one could imagine the repressed fury inside Luo Ting's mind. Just as he was ruminating on his troubles, suddenly, Black Panther walked out from the air.
"Young Master!" Black Panther's tone sounded somewhat rushed.
"What? Don't tell me you cannot even take care of a freelance martial artist?" There was some clear discontent from Luo Ting's tone.
Black Panther stuttered to speak: "No…I was downstairs and I seemed to see a person, after a short glimpse."
"Who?" Luo Ting asked coldly, "You don't mean Qin Wushuang?"
"If I did not recognize incorrectly, it should be Miss Mu Rong!"
These words had seemed like a bolt from the blue and instantly struck Luo Ting dumb as a wooden chicken. Next, some strange smiles floated onto Luo Ting's face. Yet, within this smile, it was filled with rage that could not be suppressed.
He gritted his teeth and said: "This slut is finally showing herself?"
Black Panther said: "I only caught a rushed glance at that time as I did not dare to approach closely. I don't know whether she has the protection of the elite warriors around her. Thus, I did not follow her recklessly."
"Elite warriors? She left home for such a long time, how could she have any protection of the elite warriors?" Luo Ting was extremely dissatisfied at Black Panther's excessive caution, "If you let that slut get away from your sight, then it's the same as not seeing her!"
"Since Miss Mu Rong is at the Iron Wood State city, she would not have gone too far. Young Master, could it be you are going to see her?"
The tone of Black Panther was still cautious: "I feel at this crucial point, it's better for you to not see her. Or else, it will make Miss Mu Rong feel that it's truly you who is scheming against that Qin Wushuang."
Black Panther did not dare to approach too closely. Because of this, if his identity was exposed before a familiar person, they would connect all the rumours about the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect to Luo Ting. In that case, there would be some danger of Luo Ting being exposed.
Luo Ting said angrily: "If it's truly that slut, I must see her!"
Black Panther immediately said: "Definitely not. Young Master, for this matter, you must not be headstrong!"
"Black Panther, this slut is hiding from me, could it be I must hide from her?"
"Even if you wanted to see her, now is not the time. I think the best choice now is to follow her, and to keep following her. While you follow her, you should send someone to report to Mu Rong Qianji. If old man Mu Rong does not care, we will have an excuse to denounce him for letting his daughter do whatever she wants. If Mu Rong Qianji is to step in, how could Miss Mu Rong not return to the Floating Snow House with him? As long as she returns to the Floating Snow House, this marriage must carry on! By that time, as long as this Miss Mu Rong is married to you, it's all your call whether you want to take revenge or humiliate her. The others will not be able to do anything. What will you gain by recklessly going in now? To humiliate her? If you let her get away, I am afraid you will not see her for the rest of your lifetime…"
The pit of Luo Ting's stomach moved up and down rapidly. In the end, he held back his temper and nodded: "Today, we will not beat the grass to scare the snake. Black Panther, you will immediately use your channels to get in contact with Mu Rong Qianji. This old man Mu Rong should not have gone back to the Floating Snow House!"
Black Panther nodded: "I will do it now."
"It will all depend on how old man Mu Rong takes care of it. If he lets it go, report everything immediately to Honored Daoist. Our Heavenly Luo Daoist sect will not be made a fool of by the Floating Snow House!"
Luo Ting appeared to feel extremely indignant at the injustice.
Naturally, Black Panther was a yes-man. He would act within the norms without Luo Ting's instruction. Regarding how to do it, and how to make it to look clean, he knew better than anyone.
"Young Master, for that freelance martial artist, should I leave him for now?" Black Panther asked again.
"Why not? Could it be you feel the rumors he spreads are not enough? You would let him bite me in the face and point his finger of blame toward me for scheming against the Qin Clan?" Luo Ting was extremely annoyed.
Black Panther gave a helpless sigh: "Since Mu Rong Xu is at the Iron Wood State City, I am worried that she has elite warriors around her. In case they discover we are dealing with that freelance martial artist secretly… Everything will get exposed. By that time, not to mention you, the entire Heavenly Luo Daoist sect will fall into an awkward situation. It's a small matter to offend the human countries or those freelance martial artists. Yet, to offend the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan, and even anger the current Heavenly Emperor, or allow the Forbidden Spiritual Zones to find fault with us, it would not be easy to handle."
Luo Ting was extremely depressed as he waved his hands: "Black Panther, do as you wish! Let's wait until that slut leaves the Iron Wood State City."
"There is no need to wait until she leaves the Iron Wood State City. I will toss a stone and find out what's ahead. If there are hidden elite warriors protecting her, I will know after an attempt. If there aren't any, it will be easy to take care of everything."
Luo Ting nodded: "Ok, Black Panther, you better make it work smoothly this time. I do not want my name to appear among the discussion of those freelance martial artists!"
Inwardly, Black Panther felt a wave of discomfort. From beginning to end, he has taken care of all matters carefully and no leaks had appeared. Black Panther did not know how those freelance martial artists had gotten ahold of such explosive news. Whether it were their assumption, or they had somehow extrapolated the evidence, he would have no idea.
At least he was certain that, the problem had not emerged from his end!
However, Black Panther knew clearly that he was only a dog trained by the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect. He would only have a future when he worked hard without complaint for the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect.
Immediately, he gave a bow to Luo Ting and left quietly.
On the other hand, through about ten days of battles, Qin Wushuang had killed all freelance martial artists that had entered the Dispersed Praying Mountain. For three consecutive days, not a single freelance martial artists had entered the Dispersed Praying Mountain.
When Mu Rong Xu tried to enter from the human countries into the Xuan Yuan Mound, Hissing Sky Phoenix had discovered her figure. When he went to ask for Qin Wushuang's instruction, he of course, did not set up any obstacles nor disturbed her. He let Mu Rong Xu pass easily.
This was also the reason how Black Panther was able to see Mu Rong Xu at the Iron Wood State City.
In these past three days, Qin Wushuang took turns and returned the five great spiritual beasts to the sealed scrolls. He started to examine the application of the Genuine Spiritual Beam and started to pour his spiritual Qi into the sealed scrolls.
As Qin Wushuang had expected, the crystal stones he possessed were indeed, extremely rich. Even if all twelve spiritual beasts had come out altogether, he would be able to fully resupply their spiritual Qi three times.
When the five great spiritual beasts had finished recharging, Qin Wushuang decided to keep moving forward. He arrived at the border between the Dispersed Praying Mountain and the Xuan Yuan Mound.
The defense line had been pushed forward step by step. The further it was away from the human countries, it meant the further away the human countries were from danger.
Currently, Ying Long had been sent out by Qin Wushuang to scout for information. The current gossips heard by Luo Ting and Black Panther at the Iron Wood State City were of course, Ying Long's work.
In the past ten days, if Qin Wushuang was only defending passively, then sending Ying Long to spread the information was the first step of him blowing the bugle horn on the counterattack.
Heavenly Luo Daoist sect!
As soon as Qin Wushuang thought about these four words, a flame of anger would emerge. Since the first time he had entered the Xuan Yuan Mound, because of the bounty issued by this Heavenly Luo Daoist sect, each step he had taken had been filled with grave danger. Now, Luo Ting was using this treacherous tactic to deal with him. Qin Wushuang only had one thought at the moment, and that he would counterattack without hesitation.
The first step in the counterattack would be targeted at Luo Ting!
