Roland Su looked at Victor with a look of surprise: “You’re injured?”
Roland Su, who was around 30 years of age, was composed and refined, like a mature woman with an implicit charm.
Victor’s face was bitter, he drained the cup in front of him with one mouth: “Yes, that stupid fool, sold all theprisoners to the Qin Family. I and Qin Zhen fought, and it was not easy to come back fully intact.”
Roland Su became quiet, she understood what that meant. The Qin Family had over 500 Null Division Prisoners, and it was considered a disaster to the other Families of the Purple Cuckoo City. The original alliance of the families would be able to resist the Qin Family, but if the Qin Family absorbed the 500 prisoners, the balance would be tipped. At that time, all the other families, other than becoming a vassal of the Qin Family, had no other route. With Qin Zhen’s strong personality, it was either surrender or death.
“What are you trying to say?” Roland Su’s gaze landed on Victor’s face, a complicated emotion flashing past her eyes.
“Gift the Null Division Prisoners to Ghost Face Mask.” Victor placed down the cup and did not shy away from RolandSu’s eyes, he said: “We cannot let the Qin Family become organized, if not, we will definitely not live.”
“Gift them to Ghost Face Mask?” Roland Su looked at Victor calmly: “And then what, my Roland Family have to bearthe anger of the Qin Family?”
Victor remained quiet, his face that was originally white had a flush of red: “Who dares say that we gifted them tohim? As long as we report that the Ghost Face Mask infiltrated into the Roland Family and that the Roland Familywas also a victim, what can the Qin Family say?”
“The Qin Family might not say much on the surface, but the matters after that would be complicated.” Roland Suremained calm.
Victor was not angry either, but also acted calmly: “Can the Roland Family become the vassal to others?”
Roland Su kept quiet.
“My family, has already lost its courage. What they are thinking of, is how to struggle whilst at death’s door. To thoseold men, it is enough to survive. What does i
t matter who it is with? As long as Qin Family throws a bone, they willhappily fetch it for them.” Victor’s tone was filled with disappointment, he raised his head and looked at Roland Su:“But, will the Roland Family do the same?”
“No.” Roland Su replied sharply, her tone was calm, but it was firm.
Victor Laughed, the Roland Family was soft on the outside and firm on the inside, like Roland Su, they would neverbe unable to accept being the vassal of another family. He looked at the lady in front of him, the familiar face, andthe memories of the past swept past his mind.
He calmed himself down, and his gaze turned gentle: “The Xue Residence bought a male servant, who is also aprisoner, and is most likely Ghost Face Mask. Ghost Face Mask’s fleeing technique utilizes spatial laws, and what’smore, there is a guy called Ping Xiao Shan who is proficient in it. Ping Xiao Shan had made moves on the Golden SteelThreads countless times, although he does it very secretively, but he still leaves a trail, he is a veteran.
If i did not guess wrongly, Ghost Face Mask’s fleeing technique was learned from Ping Xiao Shan.
Roland Su was taken by surprise: “Ghost Face Mask is in the Xue Residence?”
The Xue Residence had recently sought help from all over, and even sought help from the Roland Family.
“Things are THAT interesting.” Victor’s face revealed a frivolous smile: “Lu Ling Nan was rejected by Xue Ming Zhu,he came out from the Xue Residence, and not long later, Tie Xie who was with him disappeared and never cameback. Xue Ming Zhu has a steadfast personality, a bit like you. If I did not guess wrong, Tie Xie has already been donein by Ghost Face Mask.”
“The Qin Family will also find him.” Rolan Su reminded Victor.
“They can definitely find him.” Victor said: “But, the male servant of the Xue Residence was bought by money. TheXue Residence has always respected the Qin Family deeply, but this time the Qin Family silently sold them out, thusthey are already in the wrong. If they go up and ask to look for Ghost Face Mask, they are truly bullying them. Withthe temper of the Old Granny in the Xue Family, who knows if they will start fighting at first sight. Without the XueFamily, how will the Lu Family be willing to hand over the 200 prisoners to the Qin Family?”
“So?” Roland Su led him to continue.
“So they will use plots.” Victor explained: “The Lu Family has lost Tie Xie, and will definitely be unhappy. The Lu Family is stronger than the Qin Family, since they have many experts, how can they leave it as that? To the Qin Family, they only need Ghost Face Mask to die, so with the Lu Family being the blade, everyone will be happy.”
“Are you betting on Ghost Face Mask not dying?” Roland Su asked.
“That’s right.” Victor’s indifferent look disappeared, he became serious: “I witnessed Ghost Face Mask’s two battles.This time when he beat Ben Sen, many people assumed that he was hiding his strength. But from what I saw, he wasnot hiding his strength, but he actually improved.”
“He improved?” Rolan Su’s expression could no longer be kept calm, revealing a look of surprise.
She knew Victor very well, his foresight was astute and sharp, his observing ability was extremely strong and he was intelligent. He had witnessed both battles, and to come up with that thought, he definitely had some discovery. But, the time frame between both battles was extremely short, but for him to improve so much, that…..was too scary……
Victor laughed, but Roland Su could see that he had become lively, his mood suddenly became better: “That’s right,the first time, he merely relied on the law threads and the ability to sense them and caught Ben Sen off guard. He hasa very shallow enlightenment on laws, but this time, his martial technique had reached a new realm.”
“A new realm?”
“At the start, I thought that the reason that he could become the beat Ben Sen was because of the ignition of his Primordial Fire Origin. But after thinking about it, even with igniting the Primordial Fire Origin, it is impossible to defeat [Gale].” Victor became serious again: “Although the Primordial Fire Origin is much stronger than the power of the physique in terms of quality and density, but Ben Sen already has profound enlightenment on laws, if not he can’t even use [Gale]. His [Gale] was used with the power of Heaven and Earth, it is endless, no matter how strong a person’s Origin Force is, it is unable to contend against the power of Heaven and Earth. Furthermore, when they fought, I sensed a strange aura from inside Ben Sen’s gale.”
Roland Su listened attentively to him, and asked: “What strange aura?”
Her curiosity had peaked, Victor was uninhibited and licentious, but his knowledge and experience was extremelyextensive, if even he said that it was strange, then it was definitely not normal.
“I can’t tell.” Victor’s face grew solemn, and continued: “I felt that that was the crucial thing that allowed him todestroy Gale, but that aura was too weird, I have never felt something like that. I wanted to gain clarity on it, so Isnuck into the Mu’er Residence.”
Roland Su’s eyes became wide, she was surprised: “You went to find Ben Sen?”
Victor nodded his head: “Only Ben Sen knows what happened in there. Only Ben Sen knows how Gale was broken. Iwanted to know the answer, so the best way to find out was to ask Ben Sen personally. Ben Send did not hideanything, he said that Ghost Face Mask used a fist technique, which was extremely strange, it could attract all thelaw threads in the space around him.”
“What?” Roland Su exclaimed out, her face in disbelief.
Victor’s expression became even more serious: “Ghost face Mask’s fist technique was always the same technique.But that one technique contains countless of variations, Ben Sen suspects that Ghost Face Mask had condensed allthe variations into one fist. When he pulled out his fist, the law threads in the space around him started to beattracted to his fist like a magnet, and the space which all the law threads were pulled from turned completelyfrozen. This frozen space was extremely stable, and regardless of how his Gale tried to demolish it, it was extremelydifficult. Ben Sen had never seen such a fist technique before. This Fist technique demands an extremely high powerof the physique, and at the start of the battle, Ben Sen’s [Gale] had completely locked it down. But who knew at thecrucial moment, Ghost Face Mask was able to ignite his Primordial Fire Origin, and [Gale] was destroyed quicklyafter that.”
Roland Su’s moist and red lips opened up, her face filled with shock.
“When I was about to leave, Ben Sen suddenly shouted at me.” Victor’s tone became down: “He told me, never to beGhost Face Mask’s enemy.”
“Why? Because of that fist technique?” Roland Su could not help but ask.
“Ben Sen saw how Ghost Face Mask ignited his Primordial Fire Origin.” There was an additional indescribablefeeling to Victor’s tone: “The strange fist technique had already consumed all of Ghost Face Mask’s physicalstrength, but he still continued releasing that fist, causing the blood to churn in his body, and started to seep outfrom every single pore on his body, but he did not even stop, he was like a fierce and berserk tiger, blood continuedto spray out from his body, and it was the last strand of power inside him that he used to ignite the Primordial OriginFire.”
Hearing that, Roland Su did not know what to reply.
“Ben Sen said he had never seen before such a desire to win, to be able to ignore everything else.” Victor’sexpression became complicated: “Ben Sen also said that Ghost Face Mask could have killed him. But he did not dothat, he only looked at Ben Sen and left. Ben Sen suspects that Ghost Face Mask was truly there just to challengehim, to break through his own limits, he is a real maniac.”
Roland Su was quiet for a long time, and then spoke up: “So you have placed your bets on him?”
“That’s right, we have been in exile for too long, everyone is starting to get used to living life with their backs bent.”Victor said indifferently: “How many years has it been since someone walked the death path to home? The road toour ancestors’ bones must definitely be lonely. The swords of the saints of the Honorable Martial Continentguarding the gates to Sin Domain must have already rusted. We have already lost our courage, and we can even livewithout the sun. Qin Zhen himself is a person that does not need light, I am not, but I am also afraid of pain, sigh, so Iskive, and leave it to the brave people.”
Roland Su kept quiet, and then commented: “No one tried to barge through the gates of Sin Domain.”
In the first few months of banishment, countless families and people who were not happy of being banished rushedtowards the Sin Domain Gates in madness, hoping to return to the Sacred Saint Galaxy. The Honorable MartialContinent’s Saints guarded the gates and killed all of them. That path were littered with bones, and had been calledthe death path to home.
No one had succeeded, because the Honorable Martial Continent was too powerful.
Slowly, the various families got more used to Sin Domain, their lives gradually grew stable, and fewer people tried towalk the Death Path to home, and in the recent decade, no one had walked the path covered in bones anymore.
“Maybe.” Victor laughed heedlessly, his pale white handsome face revealed a smear of spirit: “But, it is worth agamble. Talking about it, we will also not lose much. It is a good bet that rarely comes by.”
“I got it.” Roland Su nodded her head, not showing any indication of what she felt, she left.
“Although we cannot stop Qin Zhen from taking the prisoners away, but, I took the chance to do something, andfound some trouble for Qin Zhen.”
Su stopped in his tracks: “Trouble?”
“Oh, I only told those prisoners that Ghost Face Mask is still alive.” Victor laughed happily, a light aura dazzling in hiseyes: “Oh oh, I also went to investigate the name of the male servant in the Xue Residence.”
“I heard that his name is Tang Tian.”
