The Geared Immortal - Chapter 491
Speeding through the shadows unseen by the naked eyes are two figures, one is at the front while the other is following behind around 100 meters. The distance between the two is always constant as the one following seems to have the ability to gauge the distance accurately.
Shin Jiao while running has a knitted brow as he tries to think who is the one following him? The person is well hidden deep in the shadows as if its figure is melded with it as one. But using his absolute sense he can see that the person behind him is a woman. However, he didn’t know how she is able to dodge his absolute sense.
Though he can see her, yet it’s a bit blurry and vague.
Shin Jiao didn’t want to bother with this person because he didn’t feel any killing intent, so he decided to just leave. And with that thought, his figure suddenly vanished.
The woman suddenly stopped as she saw in her sight a figure suddenly vanishing in thin air.
“Was that teleportation?” she muttered as her figure suddenly stopped.
Suddenly a figure of a woman wearing dark green camouflage suit slowly appears from out of thin air. Her silver hair dances through the air due to the sudden stop of her momentum. Her suit fits perfectly on her body which shows her curvy figure.
If Shin Jiao was here, he would immediately notice that her outfit almost looks like a modern ninja suit.
“d.a.m.n it! Why did that guy kill those people?! Even these women… What a sc.u.mbag. I could have asked them for more detailed information… Qin Lou will surely not like this…” She muttered as she grumbled in helplessness.
Then suddenly she noticed that some people are flying towards her location. Seeing this, she immediately made a move and blended with the shadows. Her figure suddenly vanished from the spot as she shrunk deeper into the darkness under her feet.
Not long after she disappears a group of cultivators appears and stopped on the spot where she vanished.
“Hey, did you see that?”
“Yeah, silver hair and weird suit. It’s that woman…”
“The one they called ‘The silver-haired punisher’, she has been terrorizing many cultivators in the kingdom of Er, Yi, and San…”
“What do you mean terrorizing? It’s more of saving and helping people.”
“Ha! Who would need her help? This world has its own rules and power dictates all. If those weak people fall because of their own weakness then that is their fault.”
“You a.s.sh*le! What do you mean by that? My daughter is weak; do you mean it’s okay for others to trample on her?”
“Yeah, that’s her fault for being weak.”
“Then how about I kill you now and say that you got killed because of your own weakness…”
“Ugh… wait… I didn’t mean it like that. Wait… wait… thought you are strong we are still comrade you know.”
The guards began to discuss and argue because of the appearance of the woman called ‘the silver-haired punisher’. Not long later after their argument was quelled they continue running towards the old courtyard which is already on fire.
Then the guards found the corpse of the women wearing white clothes. Some of them are even pregnant. However, upon seeing this scene the guards suddenly had an inkling of what is happening. There is a piece of news in the city that there are several young women who have disappeared. And now that they are seeing this scene in front of them, they can already deduce that these might be the women, or rather only a part of the number of young women who disappear from the city.
With this everyone felt a bit of heartache as they felt like being p.r.i.c.ked in their hearts by this event.
Suddenly, one of the guards stepped forwards with heavy footsteps as he staggered towards a young girl lying in a corner. The young girl is around 13 years old and her stomach is already bulging, which means that she is pregnant.
“No!… my daughter! No, this cannot be! This cannot be! How dare they do this to my daughter!” shouted the guard as he ran towards the cage and hack its lock. He immediately dives inside and carefully took his own daughter in his hand and carried her outside.
As he looks at her with a broken heart, he felt like he wanted to tear the heaven asunder for making her suffer this indignation and loss of her honor as a woman.
“d.a.m.n it! d.a.m.n them all!” shouted the guard.
His eyes are glued on the girl in his arms as he cried and cried…
“Captain… Look at this.” One of the guards called out.
The rest followed him and saw that in one corner there are some of the alchemists that Shin Jiao didn’t burn. When the guards saw their robe and the palm-size jade slab that is used as their identification inside their spatial pouch, everyone was dumbfounded.
“These people are from the city’s Alchemist a.s.sociation… and this person is one of the teachers in Floating Lotus Alchemy School.” muttered the captain after checking the identification of the dead alchemist.
Everyone was dumbfounded at this discovery, but none of them made a sound as they knew how powerful the Alchemist a.s.sociation in the city is. They practically control all of the city and the main reason why Alchema city became prosperous.
“This doesn’t prove the fact that the a.s.sociation is rotten to the core. This may be the work of some individual and is not related to the alchemy a.s.sociation themselves.” said the captain after thinking of the a.s.sociation president which is an amiable and kind old man.
But then his eyes turned into slits upon recalling the sinister look on the vice president of the a.s.sociation.
“If it’s that guy, maybe…” he muttered with a sneer.
The next day
Alchema city was thrown into chaos as one can hear mourning cries in many of the households in the city. The city head which is a middle-aged man with a cultivation of a 4th stage nascent realm was angered by this news.
“How did this happen in my city!” he shouted at the council table where the city officials are seated.
“Those women… most of them are members of sects… this is going to be tricky.” said one of the officials as he wipes the cold sweat on his forehead.
“Sir, according to our investigation, this was done by the alchemist a.s.sociation…” an old man said and shifted his gaze towards an old man with an amiable aura.
“Haha… General, please don’t throw the blame in our a.s.sociation easily. We will investigate this matter. I’m sure someone is trying to blame our a.s.sociation because of this. This is a malicious attack on our dignity.” A man in his 30’s suddenly interrupted.
The man has a sinister look on his face and is the vice president of the a.s.sociation, Mengli Yong.
When the people saw Mengli’s face, they all wanted to sneer but didn’t do so. This is because they are already familiar with him and his sinister look. However, many who have seen his face for the first time would really think that he is a bad guy in this entire event. And this is what is inside the minds of all those newcomers in this room.
“Vice president Yong, I am not saying this from just my own point of view. There is already solid evidence that those people came from your a.s.sociation. If you want to investigate go to the morgue! Plus the one who acted this time is the silver-haired punisher… what do you say about that?” the General didn’t back down but instead pointed out this fact in front of the group.
With his words, a doc.u.ment was immediately distributed by his clerk who has worked overtime early in the morning just to finish the filling of the evidence.
When everyone saw the information, they were all stumped.
“This… this… this could not be.” Mingli Yong muttered in disbelief.
What baffled him is how the General was able to get hold of this information this fast. What he didn’t know is that the soldiers did work overtime for this because of the grievance of one of their comrades.
Their General is a righteous man and he would not stand for his subordinate to suffer such loss without fighting back.
Hence the chaos has already begun.
While this troublesome matter is happening, inside another inn where Shin Jiao rented a new room, two women are standing.
A young woman with a lovely face is currently standing in front of his room door. Beside her is a mature looking woman with a beauty that can topple kingdoms. These two striking beauties have already made many of the people renting the inn took glances at them.
But they both ignore these people.
“Darling, are you sure that this is the right place?” the beautiful woman with a mature disposition asked.
“Yes, Master… I am sure… My nose won’t lie to me. Back then, I have already registered all the scent of the people inside the inn, and this person is the one who came from that room.” She said with surety in her eyes.
Right now, these two have been tracking Shin Jiao because they wanted to ask him something. But, it’s not only these two women are looking for Shin Jiao, but also a man called Master Kong. Their group is interested in finding the man who is able to make such a poison. And their purpose is of course to recruit him.
But the two were able to find him because of the unique ability of the young woman, her sharp sense of smell.
