Chapter 72 – Who would believe that
Translated by: Pumpkin
Edited by: Fumma, Earl
The figure of four slightly exhausted cultivators appeared from the passageway.
Three men and a woman. The woman was wearing a purple robe. Her skin a bit tanned, she had an oval face and phoenix eyes; there was not the slightest amount of extra fat on her body, giving her an exquisite figure. Yet, she carried along with her a charming sensation.
As for the three men, one had a figure similar to Ye Xiaozheng, big and tall. Holding a pair of pumpkin-sized meteor hammers, he wore a black colored leather armor and appeared to be in his thirties. As for the other one, he was a scholarly looking man dressed in cyan colored clothes. In his hand was a gray colored wood fan and on his head was a Confucian scholar cap. He was in his forties. As for the last one, he was a young cultivator. He wore a light yellow colored robe decorated with clouds. He appeared to be around Wei Suo’s age. With a slightly cleft chin, his appearance could be considered to be pretty handsome, comparable with the white clothed cultivator scared away by Wei Suo.
Upon seeing that there were people in the tomb chamber, these four cultivators immediately grew tense as if they had encountered a great enemy.
“Nangong Yuqing, Liu Wu!”
[TL: I made a mistake, her name should be Na Lanbing and not Lan Bing. I fixed the previous chapters already.]
However, after the two parties saw the opposing party’s members, both parties immediately relaxed their hands and placed away the artifacts in their hands that they were about to cast at the opposing party.
“This woman’s martial prowess is very high!” From their reactions, Wei Suo knew that it was the people from the Iron Policy that had arrived. At this moment, Wei Suo had already taken a glance at the people that arrived with his Aura Determining Technique. From that, he determined that those three male cultivators were merely level five Divine Sea Stage cultivators. However, this dark skinned woman standing in the frontmost was actually a level one Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator.
At this time, Wei Suo realized that the Iron Policy’s three groups ought to be respectively led by a Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator. That way, if they were to encounter an ordinary Mind Devouring Bug, they ought to be able to handle it. However, to their surprise, not only were there more than just a single Mind Devouring Bug in here, there was also Wen Daoge’s group planning to ambush them.
“Where’s Mu Feng?”
Once they saw that there were only four people, Nangong Yuqing and Liu Wu’s expression changed.
Once Na Lanbing saw the scene of the tomb chamber, her expression took a huge change. However, before she could say anything, the young yellow cloud pattern robed cultivator behind her instantly saw the naked female cultivator who was killed by Three Rounds Liu and screamed a heart-tearing and lung-splitting scream.
“We had been sneak attacked by a level two Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator and multiple level five Divine Sea Stage cultivators. Mu Feng was killed. We barely managed to escape. We rushed over to this location by following the traces of battles. We had already come across the corpses of Liu Baiyu and them.” Na Lanbing’s expression was extremely ugly. She simply explained what happened and then took a glance at Wei Suo. She then turned to Nangong Yuqing and Liu Wu and asked, “What happened to you all? And who is he?”
Seeing Na Lanbing displaying a very calm appearance, Wei Suo thought. ‘This woman truly gave off the air of a female boss.’
With ugly expressions, Nangong Yuqing and Liu Wu glanced at each other. Although they knew that Liu Baiyu and Huang Yiyi’s group had been met with a disaster already, the two of them were still feeling extremely unwell after hearing the confirmation from Na Lanbing. “We had bumped into several enemy cultivators from here.” Nangong Yuqing took a deep breath and then started explaining. “Originally, we had gained the upper hand. However, we ended up being ambushed by four Mind Devouring Bugs. Only us managed to luckily escape. His name is Wei Suo. He had discovered the plot of our enemy and deliberately came over to the Cyan Wind Mound to warn me. Had it not been for him, it would be impossible for us to survive.”
“Discovered the plot of our enemy?” Na Lanbing’s pair of phoenix eyes flashed. She looked to Wei Suo and asked, “How much do you know?”
“I merely happened to encounter a yellow gowned level two Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator, a purple gowned old daoist and a gray clothed cultivator conspiring in the northern city district’s market. They mentioned that there were more than a single Mind Devouring Bug and planned to wait until you all fight against the Mind Devouring Bugs until both sides were injured before coming to eliminate both you all and the Mind Devouring Bugs in one stroke.” Wei Suo looked to Na Lanbing and replied. “As for the rest, I don’t know anything about it.”
“Who killed her?! Who killed her?!” Right at the moment when Na Lanbing opened her mouth as if wanting to say something, the yellow cloud pattern robed cultivator had reached the yellow clothed female’s corpse and covered her naked body with the clothed she had stripped off. Then, with blood red eyes, he howled.
Seeing the crazed appearance of this young cultivator, Wei Suo shook his head in his mind. It was clear that if that young cultivator was not secretly in love with that yellow clothed female, then he must truly be the lover of that yellow clothed female. However, Wei Suo was able to tell that the yellow clothed young woman was likely truly planning to allow Three Rounds Liu to satisfy his lust so that she could survive. At that time, she had placed both of her hands on the large piece of stone and perked out her butt. All of her privates were clearly visible to Three Rounds Liu and Wei Suo. At that time, Wei Suo even saw that she had closed her eyes. If she had truly planned to sneak attack Three Rounds Liu while he enjoyed himself, then she would definitely not have closed her eyes. Wei Suo felt that such a woman was not someone worthy enough for the young cultivator to cry over. Seeing that the young cultivator was still howling with blood red eyes, Wei Suo pointed to Three Rounds Liu on the ground to the side. “He killed her.”
“He killed her?!” This young cultivator immediately howled with grief and indignation. A fireball smashed onto Three Rounds Liu’s corpse. In an instant, the fireball burned Three Rounds Liu’s corpse beyond devastation.
“You were present?” After glancing at Three Rounds Liu’s corpse with eyes filled with murderous intent, this young cultivator turned his blood red eyes over to Wei Suo and asked, “In that case, how did she die? Who stripped off her clothes?!”
Wei Suo hesitated for a moment. He felt that it was better for him to speak the truth. He felt that if he was to try to feign up a story for this yellow clothed woman, he might make a mistake in his story. If that was detected by that young cultivator, Na Lanbing and them, then they might even suspect him. At that time, he would truly be ruining things. Thus, Wei Suo slightly hesitated for a moment and then honestly said, “She stripped her clothes off herself.”
“What?!” The young cultivator was stunned for a moment. Immediately, he looked to Wei Suo with an even more murderous gaze. “You, tell me clearly what exactly had happened! If you were to lie, then I, Liu Anting, would definitely not let you get away with it!”
Na Lanbing and the other two cultivators from the Iron Policy all displayed an unpleased expression on their faces. Hearing what Nangong Yuqing had said, it was evident that Wei Suo had greatly assisted the Iron Policy. Furthermore, he had thrown himself into great danger for his friend, a feat extremely rare. Yet, the current tone that Liu Anting was speaking with was extremely rude towards Wei Suo and even contained traces of threat. But, because Na Lanbing and them all knew about the relationship between Liu Anting and Huang Yiyi, thus, although they were a bit unpleased by Liu Anting’s action, they did not voice to stop him.
Wei Suo took a glance at this cultivator by the name of Liu Anting. He did not bother to say any extra words and began to explain about how he encountered Huang Yiyi being chased by Three Rounds Liu, how she was threatened by Three Rounds Liu, how she stripped all of her clothes herself in exchange for survival only to find that the crazy Three Rounds Liu actually does not like women and directly killed her.
“Impossible! You are clearly spouting random lies!” Before Wei Suo finished his words, Liu Anthing’s face had already become twisted like a wounded beast and bellowed at Wei Suo with malevolence. “Why would you deliberately ruin her reputation and integrity?! What exactly is your intention?!”
Wei Suo looked at this completely unreasonable fellow and became a bit speechless.
“I get it now!” Suddenly, Liu Anting glanced at the the corpses of Wen Daoge’s companions that had all been stripped by Wei Suo. As if he had come to a realization in an instant, he shouted in a manner filled with murderous intent. “You most definitely covet for the items on her and deliberately did not save her and allowed her to be killed so that you could sneak attack this guy afterward and acquire the things on both of them. All these men and Huang Yiyi, you have stripped all of them, isn’t that right?”
“What the fuck!” Once he heard the allegation, Wei Suo was unable to contain himself anymore. “Can you not speak irresponsible remarks like this. These men here, I had only stripped their clothes off just now, okay?”
Liu Anting sneered with a stern voice. “You said earlier that the full bearded man over there is fond of men and not women, who would possibly believe that? If you still do not tell me the truth, then don’t blame me for dealing with you!”
Wei Suo did not bother to say anything. He merely laughed grimly.
After killing several Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators in succession, Wei Suo’s experience in fighting others and confidence have all rose. Moreover, although Liu Anting was a level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator, judging from the power of the fireball skill technique that he had cast, his martial technique was, at the very most, Mid Profound Level. With the numerous artifacts that Wei Suo had on him right now, it was not hard for him to deal with this Liu Anting. Furthermore, Wei Suo held him in pretty great despise right now. Before such a great unforeseen event, Na Lanbing and Nangong Yuqing, two women, were extremely cool-headed. Yet this Liu Anting, a grown man, was fussing and howling. If one wished to fight, one must at least know how powerful one’s opponent was first. To not even know the opponent and scream, in such a dangerous place, about fighting and killing, if this was not a mental deficiency, then what is?
“I believe him.” Right at this moment, Nangong Yuqing suddenly spoke.
Liu Wu looked to Liu Anting who appeared as if he was going to attack Wei Suo at any moment and nodded. “I also believe him. Brother Liu Anting…”
“You two are willing to believe him instead of believing in Huang Yiyi?” Before Liu Wu could even finish his words of console, Liu Anting already glared at him with his blood red eyes and interrupted his words.
“But, this matter…” Liu Wu wished to say something but Liu Anting had already turned around to look at Wei Suo. “If you do not recant your words and tell me exactly what had happened, then you can forget about leaving this underground tomb today.”
“Liu Anting, take note of your behavior!” Hearing what Liu Anting said, Na Lanbing was unable to restrain herself anymore. She shouted. “As for the matter regarding Huang Yiyi, we can discuss it after we go out. What we need to do right now is to figure out who exactly our opponents are and how many people they have in the underground tomb.”
“What? Na Lanbing, you’re actually also taking the side of this outsider?! I know that your relationship with Huang Yiyi is not very good, but how could you possibly put your personal interest under the guise of serving the public like so?!” With a distorted face, Liu Anting pointed at Wei Suo. “How could you not suspect that this man might not be deliberately trying to win our trust? He might even be someone from our opponents!”
“Someone from our opponents?” Nangong Yuqing sneered. “If he was an enemy sent here to deliberately win our trust, there would be no need for him to kill several Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators from them, no?”
“Very well! All of you are helping him, an outsider. With merely his martial prowess, how could he possibly be able to kill a Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator? Nangong Yuqing, if you wish to take his side, shouldn’t you at least not put all of the credit on him?” Liu Anting glanced at Wei Suo with an extremely ice-cold gaze. “Go ahead, attack me. I shall see exactly how powerful you are, to actually be able to kill Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators!”
