Chapter 7 – Kill!
A figure flashed past, standing in front of Xia Fukun.
He had white hair, and he was looking at Xia Fukun with a smile on his wrinkled face. Seeing the familiar face, Xia Fukun commanded the Super Strength Ape to stop its actions.
“Master Ni Gu, what are you doing here?”
Xia Fukun raised an eyebrow.
Where was the Red Maple Chamber of Commerce when we got into trouble? Only coming out to save Mu Bai’s life, huh? One with the Baiyun Mountain Sect, I see.
“Young Master Kun, this old man hopes to plead for Young Master Mu Bai’s life. I hope you will spare his life.”
Ni Gu smiled bitterly.
He was currently trembling in fear in front of the Super Strength Ape, but this was the last resort. If the Xia family were to be wiped out, the Red Maple Chamber of Commerce would not be affected. However, if Mu Bai were to die in Summer City, Mu Yun would turn Summer City upside down. Ni Gu wasn’t able to bear the responsibility of losing the Red Maple Chamber of Commerce division in Summer City.
Hearing Ni Gu, Mu Bai was no longer shaking with fear.
He even stared at Xia Fukun with a smirk plastered on his face.
Xia Fukun stared at Mu Bai in disdain.
Did I say I was going to let go of you?
Xia Fukun turned toward Xia Kuangyun. Xia Fukun was certain that, as Summer City’s mayor, Xia Kuangyun would know what to do best.
“We are already considered the Baiyun Mountain Sect’s enemy. Kun’er, do what you think is right,” Xia Kuangyun said calmly.
“Okay.” Xia Fukun nodded.
The Super Strength Ape let out a growl and glared at Mu Bai in its hand.
“Young Master Kun!” Ni Gu’s jaw dropped open. He never dreamed that Xia Fukun would ignore his pleading.
He was not from the Baiyun Mountain Sect though, so Ni Gu did not risk his life to save Mu Bai.
As soon as he heard the ape’s growl, Ni Gu scattered away at the speed of lightning.
Before Mu Bai could even wipe the smirk off his face, he felt a strong force pressing down on his body.
This was Mu Bai’s last word. He must have been quite shocked that his life would still end here despite having someone plea for his life.
“Since when did I say I was going to let go of you?”
Xia Fukun sneered as he watched Mu Bai’s organs drop to the ground. Blood splattered all across the mayor’s residence, tainting the walls and ground red.
Master Ni Gu, who was still watching from the side, walked up to Xia Fukun while wiping the blood off his face.
“Young Master Kun, you’re too rash! You killed Mu Yun – the Baiyun Mountain Sect’s leader’s – grandson. He will massacre Summer City!”
Xia Fukun took a glance at him and shrugged.
“Do you think that Summer City would’ve been spared if I did otherwise?”
Well, he would make sure that the Xia family died at least. Ni Gu gulped. He couldn’t possibly voice his thoughts though.
Ni Gu shook his head and left the scene. As soon as he was out of the Xia family’s sight, he started dashing back to the Red Maple Chamber of Commerce. Summer City is in danger now. I must leave this place as soon as possible!
Baiyun Mountain Sect, Hall of Souls:
All Baiyun Mountain Sect direct disciples had a soul badge of their own. When an unfortunate event happened to them, the soul badge would shatter.
The disciple guarding the Hall of Souls heard the noise and hurried to take a look. He went around the hall and finally saw Mu Bai’s soul badge lying on the floor, shattered into many pieces.
The disciple’s voice cracked in fear. He dashed to Mu Yun’s residence with the speed of lighting. Cold sweat trickled down his forehead.
“Sect… Sect Leader. Something bad has happened!”
Hearing the shouts of panic, Mu Yun furrowed his eyebrows. With a wave of his hand, the door to his room opened up, and the disciple came running in, face as pale as a sheet of paper.
“Do you not understand my words? I said to not bother me unless anything serious has taken place!” Mu Yun yelled into the disciple’s face. Mu Yun had gone into seclusion recently, sinking his teeth into cultivating in order to achieve his aim of breaking through to the Supreme Realm. When he achieved his aim, he would be as powerful as the regent of the Yaslan Empire and would no longer have to live in fear of him.
“Sect… Leader… Mu Bai, Young Master Mu Bai’s soul badge has… shattered….”
Mu Yun’s eyes bulged out as burning rage hissed through his body like deathly poison. He clenched his fist so hard that his knuckles turned white.
And that was the last thing that the disciple guarding the Hall of Souls saw. The next second, he was killed by Mu Yun in his anger.
The poor little thing did not even know the reason for his death.
Mu Yun kicked the bloody corpse that had been disfigured to the side and made his way to the Hall of Souls. He realized that the disciple was telling the truth.
“Who? Who in the Yaslan Empire killed my grandson? Who?!”
Mu Yun exploded in anger, his voice echoing through the hall, the sound waves causing the hall to shake.
Over Baiyun Mountain, ominous black clouds sprawled across the sky, leaving behind no trace of the sun that had been shining down onto the mountain a minute ago. There was a mutter of thunder, and the howling of wind rang across mountains.
Elsewhere in the Yaslan Empire, there was a man sitting on a white tiger’s fur. He narrowed his eyes, worry written across his face.
He was none other than the regent and most powerful martial artist of the Yaslan Empire. Being in the Supreme Realm enabled him to detect the changes that took place in the Yaslan Empire.
A silhouette appeared right in front of him within no time.
“There’s something going on at Baiyun Mountain. Go and take a look and come back to me.”
Shadow disappeared on the spot.
The regent went to his window, staring in the direction of Baiyun Mountain blankly.
He was the strongest martial artist in the Yaslan Empire, and Mu Yun was right behind him.
And Mu Yun was currently enraged.
“Are the tables going to flip?”
The regent sunk into deep thought. But he still did not have an answer to Mu Yun’s anger….
On the other hand, the culprit was currently watching his father staring at his pet blankly.
“Kun’er, is this… really your pet?”
Xia Kuangyun rubbed his eyes, unable to process what had just taken place.
Xia Fukun was pleasantly surprised by the Monster Refining System.
Other than receiving the Super Strength Ape from the Monster Refining System, he himself was now in the Profound Realm!
That means I’ll be in the Warrior Realm when I produce the Asura Puppet!
However, that isn’t enough. I spent so much time on the Super Strength Ape, so how soon will I get the Asura Puppet out?
The Baiyun Mountain Sect will surely be here to take revenge within no time….
Just as Xia Fukun was busy being a bundle of nerves, Xia Kuangyun spoke up.
