Chapter 336 Easily Entered Tang Feng City!
Instructor Mei Lan led her students to approach the majestic south gate of Tang Feng City.
As the capital city of the strongest and biggest empire of Lightwind Continent, even the protection walls and the city gates of Tang Feng City were much more majestic and grander than Quanhai City.
The protection walls that surrounded Tang Feng City were not only tall but also very sturdy. It was shone with mysterious dim silvery light.
Tang Li Xue did not know where this mysterious dim silver light came from, but some rare ingredients should have been added to the protection wall to make it sturdier and tougher than any ordinary stone walls.
Tang Li Xue was not sure if she could pass through these protection walls with her [Ethereal Form] divine ability like when she passed through the protection wall of Quanhai City.
There were so many elite guards guarding on the top of the walls, but the most amazing of all was that there were Spirit Cannons mounted on the top of the protection walls every 2-4 meters away from each other.
If the previous thirty powerful giant lizards who destroyed the Lin Family were attacking here, Tang Li Xue was very sure they would be turned into a group of meat pies in a few seconds by these Spirit Cannons.
Tang Li Xue started to get nervous and restless because she felt like she was walking right into her enemy's base right now.
Tang Li Xue followed silently behind Instructor Mei Lan with Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao.
She watched as Instructor Mei Lan gave a pouch filled with gold coins to the grocery merchant, and said to them that she would give the grocery merchant more gold coins if the grocery merchant managed to bring them all into Tang Feng City.
This grocery merchant has all of the necessary documents anyway, and they only need to verily to those guards that Instructor Mei Lan, Tang Li Xue, and the others were the young ladies of the rich family from their hometown who wanted to sightsee in Tang Feng City.
Instructor Mei Lan and all of her students waited patiently with the group of grocery merchants. They queued up for several hours until noon before they reached the gate and greeted the Tang Feng City's gatekeepers.
At first, the gatekeepers grumbled and complained a lot about it until Instructor Mei Lan silently shoved a pouch filled with gold coins to every gatekeeper guarding there.
These gatekeepers already took a peek at the beautiful appearance of Instructor Mei Lan and Bing Yi, so they acted like that to make things difficult for them.
They also tried to check Tang Li Xue's face, but there was something that covered her face and made it looks strangely blurry as if a cloud of smoke or fog covered her face.
It was clear that these gatekeepers targeted Instructor Mei Lan and Bing Yi from their behavior.
If Instructor Mei Lan's group did not give them any benefit, they would not let Instructor Mei Lan's group pass that easily.
Even if Instructor Mei Lan's group did not have any gold coins or money, Instructor Mei Lan's group could still pay them with their body by spending a night with them and satisfy their lust.
All of the gatekeepers grinned happily after received the gold coins, they even warmly welcomed Instructor Mei Lan and her students into their Tang Feng City and even said that they would pick up an experienced guide to help Instructor Mei Lan and her students sightseeing at Tang Feng City.
Instructor Mei Lan refused their offer and told them that they already have some acquaintances in Tang Feng City, and those acquaintances could bring them around as guides.
Tang Li Xue almost fainted in shock and depression at how easy Instructor Mei Lan brought all of them into Tang Feng City.
When she remembered how many difficulties she must face in order to bring the two disciples from Alchemist and Pharmacy Association into Quanhai City before, Tang Li Xue suddenly had an urge to commit suicide with a block of tofu.
'Sigh… No matter in my previous life or this life, money and wealth will always keep this world go around. Money and wealth maybe could not resolve all the problems, but they can at least solve a lot of problems. It can certainly make the big problem smaller, and the small problem vanished.' Tang Li Xue sighed in frustration.
Once Instructor Mei Lan and her students inside Tang Feng City, Instructor Mei Lan gave the grocery merchant another pouch filled with gold coins as thank you gift.
The grocery merchant happily accepted it and said that they would gladly help Instructor Mei Lan if she needed their help again.
Instructor Mei Lan did not hesitate to ask for their help to find any information about the recent serial murder case in Tang Feng City. She even acted terrified in front of them as if she was looking for that information because she was afraid that she would become the next target of that serial murder.
Tang Li Xue, Bing Yi, and Hei Yinghao were more afraid of Instructor Mei Lan than became the target of serial murder after they saw how realistic her act was.
Instructor Mei Lan really looked like a terrified aristocratic lady right now, and the grocery merchant easily believed her, then comforted her by saying that they would certainly look for all the information about the serial murder later.
Instructor Mei Lan humbly thanked them again and told them that they could find her in the luxurious inn at the center of Tang Feng City later. She also promised to pay them more gold coins if they managed to find any information about the serial murder.
After bid her farewell to the grocery merchant, Instructor Mei Lan whispered to her students while leading them to the center of Tang Feng City: "Bring out your umbrella and fan. Use the fan to cover your face and use the umbrella to cover yourself a bit from the light."
There were so many people near the entrance of Tang Feng City and some of them even the cultivators, so it was not really strange when Tang Li Xue and the others took out the umbrella and fan from their space pouch.
When Instructor Mei Lan, Tang Li Xue, and the others used the fan to cover the lower half of their faces while fanning themselves with it, they looked less conspicuous and more elegant now.
With the help of the umbrella, the sunlight also did not hit them as much as before either, so it would be even more difficult to notice or find them among the crowd of people in Tang Feng City.
These were only some little details to cover themselves, and many other people did these unconsciously in any town or city, but it could make them avoid a lot of trouble because of their looks.
"Remember to never let go of your umbrella and fan in the city! You only have these things to protect yourselves since you definitely cannot use any of your abilities or skills here!" Instructor Mei Lan warned them sternly with her [Telepathy] skill.
"Step aside! All of you step aside!" A lady who wore a flamboyant blue dress shouted out loud while rode her steed so fast in the middle of the busy street.
All the people included Instructor Mei Lan and her students swiftly ran to the side of the street, so they would not get trampled by that lady's steed.
Unfortunately, there was someone unlucky enough to get tripped at that timing!
It was a pregnant wife with a little child in her grasp!
"AAAAAHHHH~~!!!" The pregnant wife screamed out loud in fright while hugged her little child tightly and let her back faced the steed to protect her little child from harm.
At the crucial time when the charging steed almost trampled on the pregnant wife and her little child…
The sturdy steed flew several meters backward while the lady in flamboyant blue dress fell onto the ground.
"UUUUUAAAAAAAHHHHHHH~!!! Who?! Who dares to harm this princess?! Guards! All guards come here right now! This instant!" The lady in flamboyant blue dress screamed and shouted in a spoiled manner.
Meanwhile, the helper aided the pregnant wife to stand and asked: "Are you all right? Do I need to call a doctor for you?"
The helper was a lady in a fox mask. She wore a black cloak to cover herself, and she has long silky smooth silver hair which almost touched her knee.
Who else if she was not Tang Li Xue.....'s perfect copy.
Instructor Mei Lan, Bing Yi, and Hei Yinghao stared at Tang Li Xue beside them silently with strange gazes after they saw the young lady who saved the pregnant wife.
"Th… Thank you so much, young lady! But you better get out of here… or get out of this city as soon as possible! That lady you just kicked is one of the princesses of Feng Empire!" The pregnant wife anxiously whispered to Tang Li Xue's perfect copy and ran away from there with her little child as fast as she could.
It only took a few seconds before tens of elite guards caught up with the lady in a flamboyant blue dress.
It seems they already followed closely behind her to guard her, but this princess herself ran so quickly with her steed and created some distance with her own guards, made them unable to save her in time.
"You all stupid guards! Why do you not even save me before I fall?! I do not care! You all must catch that masked woman for me! I want to torture her until she wishes that she is dead!" The lady in flamboyant blue dress shouted to all of her guards.
"Yes, Princess!" All of the guards in silver armor shouted simultaneously while surrounded Tang Li Xue's perfect copy from all sides.
Actually, Tang Li Xue's perfect copy wanted to run away at the same time as the pregnant wife, but the gatekeepers and patrolling guards already surrounded her first before these silver armored guards.
With these many guards besieged her from all directions, it was already impossible for her to escape without resistance.
Moreover, she could not use any of her divine abilities or skills here, because the consequence would be even more unimaginable if the people here knew that there were some demonic beasts in human form among them.
Tang Li Xue prefers to sacrifice her perfect copy rather than let her use any of her divine abilities or skills to fight back.
Meanwhile, Instructor Mei Lan already swiftly grabbed the real Tang Li Xue's hand in anger and dragged her away from there.
