Tang Tian suppressed the icy cold in his heart and turned to ask Mu Lei: “Who was that?”
“Qi Ya!” Mu Lei looked horrible. In his voice, he could hear fear: “Humble Forest Planet’s most renowned dark assassin. According to rumours, he has a curtain of darkness blood meridians. Amongst the silver ranked blood meridians, he is the top. His sword techniques are superb and he rarely has any enemies. Countless experts have died by his hands. He’s known to do things only for money’s sake, always asking for a high price. Each time he had to make an appearance, no matter if he won or lost, it had to be at least five hundred thousand star coins.”
“Five hundred thousand star coins…” Tang Tian was shocked by this number. Even when he was at his wealthiest point, he never had that much money.
No matter if he lost or won… actually, Tang Tian wanted to say that it was ridiculous. But when he thought about Qi Ya’s mesmerizing sword techniques, he swallowed his sentence.
As if he seemed to have seen through Tang Tian’s thoughts, Mu Lei stated: “As of today, he had almost no records of incomplete missions. There were only two. This was the third. You don’t have to worry. He won’t come again. When he fails a mission, he will never attack again.”
When he heard that, Tang Tian sighed a breath of relief. A long one.
The assassin in black clothes gave him too much pressure. That sort of gloomy, deadly premonition. It was as if he had a dance with the death.
This rascal was terrifying.
Tang Tian was still thinking. But he did not notice Mu Lei’s gaze. Mu Lei looked at Tang Tian oddly. Qi Ya’s sneak attack appeared without any sign. If he were in Tang Tian’s shoes, he would never have sensed it. But Tang Tian manage to dodge Qi Ya’s attack!
And it was under the situation when he was carrying miss..
But… then, he could not say it clearly too. It could be Tang Tian was in good luck, or it was just that his reaction was fast. Anyways, Tang Tian did not perform greatly in other aspects such as his martial techniques.
Mu Lei suddenly smiled bitterly. Was his plight a dead end? He actually placed his hopes on somebody he knew nothing of? Also, he was just a commoner…
A rascal who had not opened his blood meridians. It was difficult to find a way out in the Humble Forest Planet. Even if he was from the Honourable Martial Group, it was hard to survive on the Humble Forest Planet. ‘Twas the territory of blood meridians.
The martial artists of the Honourable Martial Group had weak bodies. In Mu Lei’s eyes, they were paralysed. Although they had high knowledge about how to use treasures, as long as they were struck once, the martial artists of the Honourable Martial Group would be like a ragged doll, splitting into pieces.
Mu Lei was not impressed at all.
The blood meridians had brilliant views. It was super trendy in film. Mu Lei did not agree to it. But he did not think a rascal who had not activated his blood meridians had any use.
A commoner would never succeed in anything.
Such words were not fabricated by Mu Lei. He felt that his own thinking was ridiculous. A person without activating blood meridians and with powers only at the fifth level. Tang Tian was indeed the worst. Usually, young lads at this age would have already activated the blood meridians even if their levels were not high or not much.
Alright, he was a foreigner…
Mu Lei could only comfort himself with this. But when he looked at Tang Tian’s gaze, it was calm. He looked at the fearful, pale miss and his heart broke. Gu Xue was tightly holding onto Tang Tian, her face pale white, her beautiful eyes was filled with fear and fright.
Mu Lei clenched his fists tight. He might as well rely on himself!
Qi Ya… I will not let you hurt miss!
“Let’s go!” Mu Lei immediately changed his mind: “We’ll enter the city tonight!”
The others heard and packed their suitcases.
“Miss, sorry. You’ll only have to suffer a while more.” Mu Lei encouraged Gu Xue.
Gu Xue bore the fear in her heart and forced out a smile. Shaking, she said: “I’m fine.”
He cast a look at Tang Tian, whom miss was grabbing so tightly that her fingers were turning pale, Mu Lei retracted his gaze and said to Tang Tian: “Sorry to trouble Bro Tang to take care of Miss!”
Everyone changed the way they looked at Tang Tian. If it were not for Tang Tian earlier, Miss might had been abducted. And this proved that Tang Tian was a friend, not a foe.
Tang Tian nodded quickly: “No problem!”
Tang Tian looked in the direction Qi Ya disappeared. The fear in his heart faded and overtaking it was a strong sense of fighting will. It was indeed different to spar with an expert!
In his heart, he actually desired to spar with his opponent again. Although he knew his power was not enough to fight off Qi Ya, this desire grew stronger as time passed by.
Tang Tian sighed a long breath. The eyes of the young lad turned peaceful.
Tang Tian you gotta buck up!
Tang Tian, you have to become stronger!
Tang Tian, you had to defeat Qi Ya!’
In his calm eyes, it got stronger and determined.
As if his back were infested with maggots that wanted to kill, it was that deep. Tang Tian could not help but start pondering. If he confronted Qi Ya the next time, what kind of methods was he going to use to handle such terrifying black clothed assassin?
“You must be frightened.” Ah Bi Li looked at Tang Tian who sighed, and thought he must have just come back to reality. He comforted: “You’re already not too bad. To be able to escape death from Qi Ya. He is Qi Ya, the most renowned black assassin in Humble Forest Planet. You have no idea, when I saw him, my mind went blank. You know what’s the first thing that came through my mind when I reacted? Aye, dear lord, we’re actually still alive! God bless us, we’ll never meet with him again.”
“Shut up! Ah Bi Li!” Mu Lei exploded behind the two men. He was obviously not satisfied with Ah Bi Li’s attitude.
Ah Bi Li stuck his tongue out
Tang Tian smiled. He did not reveal his own thoughts. He did not mind being mocked, but he would never expose his own ambitions and wildness in front of anyone.
Although Ah Bi Li was sarcastic, he was not a bad person. Gu Xue also laughed at Ah Bi Li’s funny faces.
Gu Xue’s beautiful face and fear were immediately taken over with a smile. She was the most beautiful person ever. Ah Bi Li was stunned.
Tang Tian was slightly stunned too, but his attention was immediately attracted by something else.
Ever since Yaya had swallowed the Star Spirit Snake’s spirit nucleus, it had been in deep sleep. Right now, Yaya suddenly woke up and had emerged from the Aquarius Martial Cabinet. Leaping off, it jumped onto Tang Tian’s shoulders.
Its small face was still sleepy. Its meaty hand rubbed its eyes such that its face got distorted.
“Wow, so cute!” Gu Xue was immediately attracted to Yaya.
The half asleep Yaya was frightened by Gu Xue’s exclamation. With a shout, it jumped off Tang Tian’s shoulder and stood on his head.
With one hand grabbing hold onto Tang Tian’s hair and the other onto its bow. It crouched itself as if he was in a battle scene and glared at Gu Xue.
Gu Xue eyes glistened. Yaya’s facial expression was humorous especially when it was crouching down and its butt was poking out, shaking as it glared at Gu Xue.
Yaya was not bribed by Gu Xue’s friendliness. Its small eyes glared at her like two exploding green beans as it tried to threaten Gu Xue.
Tang Tian was in pain. The chunk of hair that was being pulled by Yaya was super painful! This bastard!
He caught hold of Yaya with a look of disdain and pinched it secretly as revenge for what Yaya did to him. Poor Yaya, being squashed like it was a ball of mud. It was severely violated. It froze. It had no preparation to what it was experiencing right now
This this this… was your rhythm of awakening?
“Aye, a bud spirit general.” Mu Lei was knowledgeable. When he saw Yaya, he recognised it immediately.
“Bud Spirit general? Amazing isn’t it?” Gu Xue’s eyes lit up. She was a sucker for such cute objects. She had never seen such a cute spirit general.
“The lowest rank of spirit generals.” Mu Lei rolled his eyes and said blandly: “In terms of essence, it is an unformed spirit general. Very agile.”
Indeed… this foreigner was not worth looking forward to.
When Mu Lei saw Yaya, he no longer held any hopes on Tang Tian. Bud spirit general were such a low level of spirit generals. There was absolute no worth. Tang Tian actually nurtured such a low level spirit general… although bud spirit generals would not be restricted to a time limit like those spirit generals being called out from the spirit general cards, their fighting strength was almost zero. No one would actually choose a bud spirit general as a fighting assistant.
But, seeing that Tang Tian saved Miss’ life. He made his words sound nice.
The others looked oddly too.
A powerful spirit general was an outstanding assistant. Of course, this had to do with powers. The stronger the spirit general was, the better. That was a fact. On the contrary, the weaker a spirit general was, it generally meant that the opponent was also weak. Such hypothesis was largely correct.
A very poor commoner.
Ah Bi Li whistled: “Tang Tian, this has got to be the oddest spirit general I have ever seen.”
“Is that so?” Tang Tian did not seem to notice Ah Bi Li’s humour. He said nonchalantly: “Although Yaya is not very powerful, it is very smart.”
He continued squeezing it as he spoke.
Poor Yaya, once again it was violated. Immediately, it rolled its eyes. Were you not complimenting me…
“It is called Yaya?” Gu Xue did not bother if Yaya was powerful. In her eyes, Yaya was too adorable. She extended her hands and asked expectantly: “Can I hug?”
Tang Tian unwillingly placed Yaya in Gu Xue’s hands: “Careful. It’s a little fierce.”
It was not fierce at all…
Yaya, who had escaped from the devil’s hands, jumped and hugged Gu Xue’s fingers like a koala bear.
Gu Xue was moved. She lifted Yaya carefully, full of love.
Tang Tian shot Yaya a glance. What a rascal with no integrity. I’ll settle scores with you later. How dare you pull my hair. You are dead!
Yaya pouted and hugged Gu Xue’s fingers even tighter.
“Look! That’s Black Mountain City!”
Suddenly, Ah Bi Li’s cheers interrupted Tang Tian.
Tang Tian and the others were half way through the mountain. Underneath their feet was a curvy road. If they looked down, far below their feet, a glorious city was set litjust like a beast. It sat quietly in the dark.
