Chapter 410 Incoming Menace!
Chapter 410 Incoming Menace!
Even Elder Yang could hardly believe that a smart person like him could get trapped in his own deed like now.
But it really could not be helped since he was blinded by extreme hatred at that time, and he already prepared to sacrifice everything, even his own life to take revenge on Mo Chonglin and his cruel grandfather.
Elder Yang sighed with a heavy heart while pondered his next future movement carefully: 'If I just run away from Immortal Sword Sect, I will become a fugitive of both Asura Demon Sect and Immortal Sword Sect.'
'No, that is the most stupid move. Asura Demon Sect could not be compared to Immortal Sword Sect at all. It is still fine to become a fugitive of Asura Demon Sect, but become a fugitive of Immortal Sword Sect is a whole different matter altogether!' Elder Yang groaned in his heart.
Asura Demon Sect and the other Evil Sects were nothing more than a group of rats that could only hide or move secretly behind the shadow, but Immortal Sword Sect was the local lion here, the true king of Lightwind Continent.
'Should I just fake my own death to deceive Rongrong and all the people from Immortal Sword Sect? This idea is not a bad idea, but they can check if I am really dead or not from my life tablet. If I want this idea to work, then I must start from my life tablet in Ancestral Temple first.' Elder Yang decided in his heart.
The life tablets of all elders from the Immortal Sword Sect were stored in Ancestral Temple.
If their life tablets stored in there suddenly shattered, then it means those elders already passed away.
From the shattered life tablets, the people from Immortal Sword Sect could even check the last scene that passed away elders had seen, thus they would immediately know the reason or the true culprit who killed their elders in an instant, and they could hunt the culprit from that clue.
Of course, not every culprit who killed the elders from Immortal Sword Sect could be traced with this method.
If the cultivation of the culprit was too high, or if the culprit used some kind of special treasure or the treasure used to slay them was too highly ranked, then the soul of those elders would vanish in an instant, and the shattered life tablet could not catch the last scene after they died.
The perfect example was the elders who previously died in Taotie's mouth...
How could the mere life tablets catch the last scene of something that entered the mouth of the most terrifying and the strongest beast in the four evil fiend beasts?!
Even now the death of those elders was still a mystery for the people from the Immortal Sword Sect, but no one dared to investigate it since they were afraid that those dead elders accidentally offended an extremely powerful being that could erase their existence in an instant.
'This is strange… Those elders that escorted me to Tang Feng City should already tell the old Patriarch about my close relationship with Xiao Bai, but why he did not ask me about it?' Elder Yang frowned and felt a bit suspicious, but he decided to not think too much since no one asked him about it.
In the end, Elder Yang decided to not meet with Rongrong today since his heart and mind still felt so messy right now, and he decided to head directly to the library to receive his punishment there.
Elder Yang did not know that the old Patriarch actually did not know about that matter yet…
A few days ago when Elder Yang and the other elders came back to Immortal Sword Sect, Elder Yang himself must report everything that happened in Tang Feng City to the old Patriarch, especially since he was failed to catch any of the culprits of the serial murder and even let them all escape without getting any clue about their true identity.
But Elder Yang and the old Patriarch did not know that while Elder Yang was reporting to the old Patriarch, the other elders were actually got called by Rongrong.
The four Nascent Soul Stage elders did not hold anything back and told what happened in Tang Feng City to Rongrong, including Elder Yang that actively flirting with Tang Li Xue there.
"Thank you very much for telling me all about these, elders. Can all of you help me once more by not telling the part where my Yangyang played around with that girl to anyone, including my 1st Grandpa?" Rongrong humbly asked for the elders to hide the truth about Elder Yang flirted with Tang Li Xue from everyone.
"This…" The four Nascent Soul Stage elders hesitated for a while.
Rongrong smiled at them while waved her hand toward her maid as if she was asking her maid to take out something.
Rongrong's maid understood in an instant and took out a wooden box from the drawer at the dressing table.
Rongrong took the wooden box from her maid and gave it to the four Nascent Soul Stage elders while explained: "Elders do not need to worry. I can reassure you all that you will not get punished even if my 1st Grandpa knows about it later. All of you should already know that my 1st Granpa always complies with my every wish, right? Inside this box is my gratitude gift from me to all of you, please accept it."
The four Nascent Soul Stage elders still looked at each other and felt hesitant about accepting Rongrong's gift.
"Inside this box, there are four Poison Body Pills. It is concocted from nine gallbladders from nine different types of Beast Lord-ranked Snakes. By consuming it, you will immune to more than 3,000 poisons, and every sliver of your Qi would be mixed with undetectable lethal poisonous Qi." Rongrong explained the effect of her gift to the four Nascent Soul Stage elders.
The eyes of the four Nascent Soul Stage elders shone brighter in greediness after they heard Rongrong's explanation, and they happily accepted her gift.
"Nephew Rong, if you feel jealous of that girl, we can even help you secretly kill her without being discovered by Elder Yang. How about it?" The four Nascent Soul Stage elders felt really happy with Rongrong's generous gift, but they also felt uncomfortable since they felt as if they cheated Rongrong so they decided to offer their help to her instead.
"Thank you for your offer, Elders. But you all do not need to go that far. My Yangyang is still very young, so it is normal for him to flirt with one or two other young girls. I do not mind if he has several more concubines later. I, Rongrong, am already more than satisfied to have Yangyang by my side." Rongrong said with a gentle tone.
The expressions of the four elders changed after they heard it, and they admired Rongrong more.
"But Rongrong feel a bit curious about that girl. Is she really that beautiful?" Rongrong giggled and asked with a playful tone.
"Yes, that girl is very beautiful like a fairy… No, maybe even more than that…" One of the four elders could not hold their fondness of Tang Li Xue's beauty and praised her generously in front of Rongrong.
"Oh, really? More beautiful than me?" Rongrong stopped smiling and asked again.
"This… Uh…" The four elders did not dare to answer this question, but they also did not dare to lie, so they could only lower their heads and act confused.
"Elders' reaction makes me more and more curious about that girl's appearance. Can anyone of you paint her appearance for me?" Rongrong smiled again as usual and asked for the third time.
The four elders still felt hesitant, but one of them braved himself and replied: "It's not that we do not want to paint her appearance for you, Nephew Rong. But no matter how good our painting skill is, it certainly could not express even a tenth of that girl's true appearance."
"Oh? She is that beautiful?!" Rongrong felt skeptical.
"But Nephew Rong do not need to worry. You can find that girl easily if you really want to. The appearance of that girl is too beautiful, so she always covers her face with a fox mask and black cloak to avoid any trouble. She also has long silky and shiny silver hair. In short, she is very easy to recognize." The other elders quickly added.
"I see... No wonder, Yangyang is so infatuated with her. Thank you very much for your help, Elders. I will not bother all of you anymore since you all must be tired right now." Rongrong politely saluted the four elders and bid them farewell.
After the four elders went out of her room, Rongrong's expression turned gloomy, and she quickly took a piece of paper, then write something on it.
After she finished writing, Rongrong folded that paper and insert it into an envelope, then sealed it tightly.
"Susu, can I believe in you?" Rongrong asked her maid with a solemn expression.
The maid named Susu immediately kneeled in front of Rongrong and said: "Do not worry Young Miss. Susu will do everything for Young Miss even if Susu needs to sacrifice her life for Young Miss, Susu will not refuse!"
"Good! I trust you! Give this letter to Assassin Tower and remember to not let anyone see you or get any clue about this letter." Rongrong whispered to her maid while gave her maid a letter.
The maid felt puzzled and decided to ask: "Young Miss, I do not understand. Why do you not let those elders kill that girl instead of paying Assassin Tower to do it?"
Rongrong replied with a cold expression: "Are you really sure those four elders can keep their mouths shut forever? What if they divulge it to my Yangyang after he became the Young Patriarch later, doesn't it mean Yangyang would hate me forever for that? I cannot afford that to happen! That is the reason why I refused their offer and doing it in such a roundabout way like this."
"Young Miss is so smart! Susu understood it now!" The maid replied to Rongrong in admiration.
Rongrong nodded to her maid and waved her hand signaled her to go: "You can go now. Remember to be really careful!"
After her maid went out from the room, Rongrong sneered coldly and murmured: "Only dead men can keep their mouths shut forever. I will use that maid to indirectly communicate with Assassin Tower. After that girl killed by the assassins from Assassin Tower, I just need to get rid of that maid forever, and no one could relate that girl's death with me anymore."
Of course, Rongrong could never get rid of the four Nascent Soul Stage elders just like that. It was the reason why Rongrong did not accept their offer to kill Tang Li Xue.
But get rid of one maid was not a big problem for Rongrong and no one would bother to notice if an insignificant maid was suddenly missing forever from here.
