“Now you know that you did not bet on the wrong side…..” Victor watched the hoorah at the distant city gates, hisblood red shirt contrasted with his pale face.
Roland Su was also out of focus, but her face was covered with a veil, and her expression was not clear.
The day’s event had greatly shaken her, firstly, she had watched how Ghost Face Mask and Han Bing Ning defeatedWei Han and Mu Ze, and then saw how Ghost Face Mask destroyed the city gates with one punch. She finallyunderstood why Victor would place so much hope on him, the powerful momentum of his was too terrifying.
Even by observing from a distance, she was still greatly shaken.
The Sin Domain was filled with experts, but as time flowed, their bravery became weaker and weaker, which wasclearly proven in the fight, there were already very few people who would use such brave techniques and risk theirlives to fight, but instead, crafty techniques and tricks had become more in trend.
When she saw that Ghost Face Mask was unyielding and unstoppable, fearlessly rushing in head on, it made herblood boil. But when she saw Qin Zi Zhen’s Archer unit releasing their Law Cleaving Arrows, Victor and Roland Su’sfaces changed. They knew of the power of the Law Cleaving Arrows and the might of the Archer Unit, how terrifyingthey were, and no one had ever survived from their arrows.
But right in front of their eyes, not only did Tang Tian not retreat, he even took a step forward!
At that time, Roland Su’s mind was already in a state of confusion, an unspeakable bitterness, like a bloody stenchmixed with a burning smell, suddenly pervaded out. Victor became even more excited, the fighting intent in him hadbeen aroused.
Roland Su did not joke with Victor anymore, the young and stern figure that commanded the Archer Unit was onewho was a pain in the stomach for everyone else, like a boulder embedded in them. Facing him and the archer unit,she would had retreated, dodged, o
But, Ghost Face Mask did neither of those things.
He continued to advance.
“Actually, he could had dodged it.” Roland Su suddenly said, she did not even understand why she said that, ~MaybeThat’s what I would do?~
Victor was stunned, he remained silent for a moment, then spoke with melancholy: “When I was rushing back, myfamily had already formed an agreement with the Qin Family, in which I was helpless to stop it. I was furious, andstarted to fight with Qin Zhen. But when I lost, Qin Zhen did not kill me, he believed that I would not dare doanything reckless, as he saw that I was doing it with the family at heart. I was unhappy, I felt that I needed to dosomething, so before the Family had sent the prisoners away, I told the prisoners that Ghost Face mask was stillalive. Did you know what I saw? I saw crazy burning flames in every single one of their eyes. Every single one. Thatwas when I know, they are definitely willing to die for him.”
Roland Su listened on quietly.
“At that time, I was very happy, because when these prisoners were sent to the Qin Family, the news of Ghost Facemask being alive would spread to the other prisoners, making them even more patient, more disobedient, and thatwill successfully hinder the Qin Family’s speed at absorbing all of them. At that time, the majority of the reason fordoing so was to make myself happy. I had already thought, at that time, that no one can stop Qin Zhen, no one will beable to stop the Qin Family.”
Victor’s voice became even more gloomy, and then strange.
“But after that, the light aura that blossomed in the eyes of the prisoners after hearing the news appeared again. QinZhen is sufficiently powerful, but I have never seen his subordinates having those burning flames in their eyes. Itwas something I had never seen in the Sin Domain before. I was thinking, Why? After thinking for a long time, I stilldid not understand it, but I got to know something. Since there are so many traits in him that are not present in ourSin Domain people, who knows, this person, is able to do some things that we are unable to?”
Roland Su looked at Victor in shock, she had never expected Victor to harbor such thoughts.
Victor looked at the broken city gates, and the figures that had long disappeared, and suddenly laughed: “I was justthinking about it, at such a time, for someone to still be willing to protect his own companions, regardless of who itis, the people following him will never worry about being forsaken or thrown away by him. No wonder hissubordinates are all loyal towards him till death. To us, this is a good thing. Don’t you think that the Sin Domainneeds such an unintelligent hero?”
“Hero?” Roland Su frowned, she did not like the word.
Victor laughed, but did not explain further.
“Why isn’t Qin Zhen out yet?” Roland Su suddenly frowned and asked.
Victor then spoke: “He went over to the Galloping Horse City, the alliance between Qin Family and the Lu Familythis time isn’t normal.”
Oland Su wasn’t as crafty and spot on as Victor, but after being in the seat of the Matriarch for so long, she still hadsome foresight.
“Is the Xue Family truly worth 200 of the Null Division Prisoners?” Victor scoffed: “For the Lu Family to actually bewilling to exchange 200 Null Division prisoners for the Xue Family, if this isn’t strange, then it’s strange.”
Roland Su knew Victor well, and did not beat about the bush with him, and asked directly: “Why do you think it is aproblem?”
“I don’t know.” Victor sighed:” Who knows, maybe the Xue Family has some secret none of us knows about.”
“You’re a drunkard.” Roland Su snorted, but upon saying that, she felt uncomfortable. It was too intimate.
Victor rubbed his own nose and laughed bitterly: “It’s not like you don’t know me, I have no say in my family. I havenot cared much about the family matters too, so how will I know such secrets. But even some times, whenever I goout drinking, I will hear a few interesting pieces of news.”
Roland Su glanced at Victor, but did not show sign of interest.
Victor who initially wanted to let the climax reach its peak spoke with embarrassment: “In truth it is nothing much,but it is said that there is a great secret regarding the Golden Steel Silkworms of the Xue Family. This secret mightpossibly be directly linked the the Xue Family’s inheritance, but who would have thought that the secret would belost, and because the Xue Family is missing the most important part, they are slowly declining.”
“A bunch of rumors.” Roland Su snorted.
No one would doubt about the Xue Family having a secret regarding the Golden Steel Silkworms, otherwise, whywere they the only one with such a product? But to say that the Golden Steel Silkworms were linked to theirinheritance, Roland Su did not believe that at all.
“You might say that, but I do believe in it slightly.” Victor spoke out: “Don’t forget, The Xue Family used to havemany experts. And furthermore, at that time, the Xue Residence isn’t like how it is today, only women. At that time,the Xue Residence flourished with both men and women alike, that is why I believe in it.”
“Don’t tell me, you think that the Lu Family knows of this secret?” Roland Su scoffed, although Victor was many atimes not reliable, but he was extremely sharp. For him to say that, he most likely 90% certain.
“That is why I am also curious. Is the Lu Family lacking in inheritance? Even when the Xue Family was in its prime, itisn’t comparable to the current Lu Family. Why would the Lu Family be interested in Xue Family’s inheritance? Justfor it, they are willing to hand over 200 Null Division prisoners?” Victor’s mouth twitched, his face filled with disdain.
“Then what do you want to do?” Roland Su asked.
“Doesn’t Ghost Face Mask come into play here?” Victor said: “At this time, they will definitely draw a line with Ghost Face Mask, and say that he is an outsider. But now, the Xue Family is left at a corner with no road to go, at this time, if they were to let go of Ghost Face Mask’s backing, then they will truly be stupid. I am truly excited, we already have such a powerful Ghost Face Mask, adding another 50 or 60 of his subordinates, how strong will he become? Aren’t you excited?”
“You’ve long thought about all of this?” Roland Su asked.
Victor was surprised, he rubbed his nose again: “So you always thought so highly of me, I am not as powerful as youthink I am, I am just taking advantage of the situation.”
“You best not have any intentions on the Roland Family, if not I will kill you.” Roland Su said coldly.
Victor laughed bitterly: “Hey hey hey, I didn’t do anything to you….”
At another corner of the city.
“Victor is also powerful, upon suffering from Qin Zhen, he immediately stabbed right back at him, Qin Zhen isdefinitely regretting now on not killing him the last time.”
Xu Ye carried on leisurely: “Victor is best at seeing opportunities, for him to actually think of using Roland Su’s men.Roland Su is also very decisive, to place her bets without hesitation. Rumors were that the two of them had arelationship when they were young, now that I see it, it is most likely true.”
Xu An Zhong did not care about it, he was still reminiscing about the process whereby Han Bing Ning killed Mu Ze.
Han Bing Ning’s improvements had surprised him, and it was obvious that she was not skilled in sneak attack, butwhen she did so to kill Mu Ze, it was a true masterpiece.
Xu Ye looked at Xu An Zhong: “That Han Bing Ning is loyal towards Ghost Face Mask, you won’t have a chance.”
“I only want to be a disciple.” Xu An Zhong raised his head and replied.
Xu Ye laughed out loud and changed the topic: “What about Ghost Face Mask’s Fist?”
Xu An Zhong did not say anything. Only when he saw the fist did he understand how Ben Sen was defeated. Hethought back about the fist, if he were to be placed in Qin Zi Zhen’s position, to suddenly realise that he was unableto block the fist, under that panic, he could only wait to be reincarnated.
“Yes.” Xu Ye’s smile disappeared: “Who would have thought that someone would actually be able to use such anunfathomable fist technique. His enlightenment on the Fist Dao has reached a great depth. He does not require anyenlightenment on laws, the variations accumulated in his fist will naturally absorb the law Threads around him, all ofthem would be inclined towards his fist, that amount of variations accumulated in his fist that cannot be seen byanyone else, that is truly ignoring the exterior beauty.”
“I have no guarantee of beating it.”
This phrase seemed to be spoken out with all the strength he could muster. But after saying it, Xu An Zhong feltmore relaxed, the terrifying pressure had disappeared.
“Congratulations, An Zhong.” Xu Ye’s eyes lit up with a strange light, he trained in the Life and Death Laws, and was extremely acute to the differences in a human body. When Xu An Zhong said those words, not only did the vitality in his body lessen, but it became extremely calm, and become even slightly stronger.
Xu An Zhong could clearly feel the break through in his state of mind, but did not reveal any joy, maintaining hiscalm: “Although I have no chance of beating his punch, but I still desire a battle with him.”
“The opportunity will come.” Xu Ye laughed: “But, Qin Zi Zhen’s arrow is not easily subdued. Relax, there is a showto watch.”
