The window curtains were drawn closed very tightly, causing the room to be very dark. Tang Tian sat in the corner cross legged, his eyes closed, somewhat immersed. Not far from him, Angelina had her arms supporting her chin, staring intently at Tang Tian, somewhat in a daze.
Thinking about everything that happened the past few days, her mind was in a blank.
She could no longer gather courage to fight him.
His methods were truly too scary. Witnessing it for the past few days, how he was able to flip his hand and change the situation, and by flipping his hand again, another reaction would occur. The entire Fairy City was completely toyed with by him.
Fairy City was currently in turmoil and chaos, with the lack of prestigious people coming out to lead, the situation. On that day, The Great Clan Elder who had premeditated and wanted to charge Ta Dun for the crimes, had brought practically all of the higher ups of Fairy City together, and in the explosion, none of them survived.
They had rushed to the Fairy Palace, and did not have time to send the message out.
The entire Fairy City, no, all the higher ups of the Fairy City, all of them were completely erased, and everything that had happened, was also erased.
The law and order in the city became chaotic, all the rich and influential people were scared, as they did not know what had happened. What made them the most terrified was that their family elders and the clan elders had all disappeared. All of the families could only close their doors, tighten their security, and send people out to find their elders and the clan elders.
If they were alive, they wanted to meet them. If they were dead, they wanted to see the bodies.
Chaos, chaos like never seen before.
The chaos and disorder caused Qiu Shan and his men much more difficulty in searching. He had limited manpower, and facing such disorder, his little manpower could not look for anything.
Even worse, the situation had gone to a point where they did not even expect.
Qiu Shan’s face was ashen, in front of him, Zou Ning carefully reported.
“…..now the market is saying, the explosion was caused by us. They said they have witnesses, saying that because of Asda’s rejection to form the alliance with us, we became angry and ashamed…”
Zou Ning could feel that his master was releasing a massive killing intent, and knew that his master was thoroughly enraged. But the matter was too serious and he did not dare hide it, so he had to harden his skin and continue.
“They said, it was not an ordinary explosion, the might was so powerful, and only Honorable Martial Group could achieve that. Also, the timing of the explosion was so perfect, it was just when we left…”
The faces of the people around Qiu Shan all changed, they could not refute those words. Such rumours, were truly powerful, and also extremely convincing.
If not them personally doing it, they might not have believed such rumors. Their performance was too real, and just as they left, Fairy Palace exploded, and not just a normal explosion, but the power of the explosion was so terrifying.
They all looked at each other and smiled bitterly.
This was like yellow mud on their trousers, even though it was not urine, but to the others, it was urine.
Qiu Shan took a deep breath, forcing himself to calm down. There was no point in being angry, and he said: “did you find out who spread those messages?”
Zou Ning hesitated for awhile, then decided to speak the truth: “We were solely in contact with the Great Clan Elder, Kylie and Ba Fu only. Now we do not have any local allies, so we do not have eyes or ears.”
Someone suggested: “Then are we able to rope in a few of the local businesses, I noticed that their attitude to us were rather intimate that day.”
Zou Ning glanced at him and replied: “At this time, who would dare to risk condemnation and contact us? No one will trust us. And, almost all the elders of the big commerces in the city had all died in the explosion.”
“The Fairy Hoop is in Angelina’s hands.” Qiu Shan said solemnly.
Zou Ning understood his Master’s meaning, and shook his head while laughing bitterly: “They said, because Atlantis and Kylie were killed by Master, for the sake of protecting Angelina, the Great Clan Elder and Asda staged getting injured. That means, Asda knew of the inevitable harm, and gave the Fairy Hoop to Angelina and allowed her to escape. There are a few variations of this rumor.”
Qiu Shan was so angry he laughed instead: “Bullshit!”
“The citizens are willing to believe, so the families are also willing to believe.” Zou Ning said solemnly: “They need someone to lead them, and Angelina has the Fairy Hoop, so it is fair for her to be the one. More importantly, No one will believe that Angelina was the one who caused the explosion.”
“There is someone behind Angelina.” Qiu Shan had calmed down: “He is a mysterious swordsman, and Angelina will have definitely returned to the Rose Manor, if not there would not be such rumors. So we only have one route to go, and that is to kill Angelina and seize the Fairy Hoop back. Since it is already so chaotic, we will make it even worse!”
A trace of ferocity flashed past Qiu Shan’s eyes.
“Let us go to the Rose Manor!”
“Yes!” Everyone replied in unison.
They had already investigated Angelina, and knew her family grounds very clearly. They did not have many people, but at the same time, their target was small, and by breaking their goal up into mini milestones to complete was easier. Quietly, they made their way to the Rose Manor.
The Rose Manor’s defenses were extremely tight, with guardposts every 10 steps and sentries every 5, even birds would have difficulty entering.
Everyone was extremely aroused.
The scene only confirmed Qiu Shan’s speculations. The more crucial thing was, there were only people going in the manor and no one going out, which was an unusual scene. The other families had also tightened their defense, but would always have many people going in and out. Because they were looking for their kins lost from the explosion, but for the Rose Manor, there was no one coming out.
All the other manors were brightly lit up, awaiting for news all day and night. Only the Rose Manor was in a state of darkness, all of their guards prowling the area with tense faces.
Everything was but normal.
Qiu Shan squinted his eyes, seeing the tight defense of the manor. Without question, the rumors were all spread by Angelina secretly. And the mastermind behind the scenes was most likely the mysterious swordsman.
But every plot, in the face of absolute power would always crumble.
The men he had brought were all elites of Honorable Martial Group, and the defense in front of them were only good for ordinary martial artists, and to the likes of them, it was futile.
A group of men quietly slipped into the Manor.
Very quickly, they found the location of Angelina, it was a small house completely covered with rose, in which all the people in the manor called it the Rose House. Their efforts were not gone to waste, the flowers were extremely beautiful.
The curtains of the Rose House were all closed.
This situation made everyone excited. Without question, the probability of Angelina hiding inside was extremely high.
Qiu Shan made a gesture to Zou Ning.
Zou Ning understood, he was about to make his move, when a strange scene happened.
A pure white light shot out towards his face.
Zou Ning’s pupils contracted.
The light was shot out from the Rose House that was about 400m away. In that same moment, pa pa pa, one after another lights all shot out towards every direction, the projections incoming, causing all their hairs to stand.
Not good, it was an ambush!
Qiu Shan’s heart darkened, but he did not panic, since they were caught, then attack!
He roared: “KILL!”
The sword in his hand released a bright light, almost as bright as the sun, the sword slashed down on the Rose House, with its surprising sword aura.
All the other light auras all aimed straight towards the rose house.
The Rose House immediately transformed into fine powder.
Qiu Shan’s eyes contracted, there was nobody!
“Good good good!” An old angry voice sounded out from the sky. Above where the house was, an old man stood there with tears flowing down, sorrowfully saying: “Master, you who are in heaven, wished to tell us who harmed you!”
He was the Tenth Elder, someone who did not meddle in day-to-day matters, and loved peace, so he escaped everything. But he had been an elder the longest, and had seen Asda grow up, and had a deep relation with Asda, so his heart was pained beyond grief.
Another squared face middle aged man had fire of hate spewing out of his eyes, angrily shouting: “Qiu Shan! What enmity does our Andromeda Constellation have with Honorable Martial Group? You dare to be so cruel! You are so vicious!”
He was the young master of Fairy City’s biggest commerce, his father had been missing till now, and the loss of his father was so painful it leaked into his bones.
An old general dressed in armor had hair as white as snow, he did not let anger take over him. He was Plateau Army’s former commander, and he said: “Although my Andromeda Constellation is small, but it will not be stepped over! From today on, My Andromeda Constellation will cut all ties with Honorable Martial Group! Kill!”
From afar, roars of anger filled the sky, all their shouts coming closer.
Qiu Shan’s face turned pale, his entire body seemed to fall like an ice statue, he was duped!
Every step of his was calculated by the opponent. The opponent had purposely spread rumors, and purposely left out a clue, everything a trap for the next move. Suddenly, Qiu Shan seemed to have awakened, this trap seemed extremely familiar with the one he laid for Ta Dun.
Was this karma?
He had already shown his guilt for killing Asda, and shown his guilt for creating the big explosion.
No matter how hard he tried to refute, no one would believe him.
He suddenly opened his eyes wide, all his confidence, had disappeared in that moment. From that day on, Andromeda Constellation had become Honorable Martial Group’s enemy and became Leo Constellation’s firm ally.
Everything that he had done, spread over the entire Northern Sky’s 19 continents like the wind, making enemies out of all the other constellations, and would be used by Leo Constellation without restraint, using the information to smear Honorable Martial Group’s name.
In that subtle moment, he knew he had erred fatally. He knew, he was finished.
For the sake of changing the situation, the Honorable Martial Group would definitely sacrifice him, and condemn him to a terrible punishment.
Finished, he was finished.
He raised his head up, his eyes seemed to be full of blood, like a wild beast on the verge of death.
The shouts poured in like tides, for the sake of not scaring them, the guards were situated over 200m away.
About 3km away from the Rose House, in an ordinary home where servants slept, a window that had its curtains drawn was slightly opened.
Tang Tian coldly watched the entire scene.
He said without turning back.
Personally planning everything step by step, personally witnessing the entire scene, Angelina was dumbstruck. After a long time, she regained her senses and turned her pale face.
A chill spread through her heart.
That blurred face, that deep and hoarse voice, that figure that was covered in the darkness, at that moment, was extremely demonic, extremely terrifying.
