Chapter 277: The Super-Misunderstanding!
Translator: Novel Saga Editor: Novel Saga
Hit-man Juns inference was reasonable. But it was slightly inconsistent.
The Yin-Yang Escape was a wonderful evasive technique. So much so that even the Eight Great Masters couldnt find Jun Mo Xies tracks. But the Yin-Yang Escape didnt use the five key elements for the time being. One could go into hiding, but theyd still be discoverable for they would werent escaping into the void. The technique merely altered the flow of air to create this anomaly. This technique wasnt much of an anomaly from this perspective. In fact, it was quite ordinary. A person would basically be walking around with some alterations in the flow of air around their body.
The vast majority of people were unable to detect these subtle changes.
However, who was Lei Wu Bei? He wouldnt have been worthy of his name if he couldnt detect these changes.
He could easily notice even the most-minute changes in the flow of air. However, the situation in front of him was too weird. He had never witnessed such a strong killing intention. He could infer that the strength of the individual emanating it was quite profound. Therefore, Lei Wu Bei had released his powerful Qi in order to protect himself.
However, Lei Wu Bei couldnt sense it once Jun Mo Xie entered the Hong Jun Pagoda.
Jun Mo Xie had realized this in time. He felt frustrated, and remained inside the Hong Jun Pagoda with a blank expression on his face. He stayed there for a while, and reckoned that hed escape once Lei Wu Bei left. He came out to take a peek, and realized that Lei Wu Bei was unexpectedly rooted to the same spot. Moreover, the Young Master Jun had barely come out of the Hong Jun Pagoda while being invisible yet Lei Wu Beis eyes quickly turned to look in his direction
It seemed as if his eyes were a pair of jack-o-lanterns.
[Damn! This fart has a lot of free time!] Jun Mo Xie felt very helpless since he had no option but to return inside. He inwardly cursed Lei Wu Bei. [I wont be able to get out of here before break of dawn at this rate. This isnt good]
A Great Master would never doubt his spiritual sense. Though the Young Master Juns odor subsided in a flash, but it left a deep impression on Master Lei. And he wouldnt dare to neglect it.
Lei Wu Bei had nothing to concern himself with while he returned from his confrontation with Solitary Falcon. Therefore, he had slowed his speed down. Moreover, he had attempted to look for the mysterious owner of that groan throughout the journey. This had slowed him down even further
He had barely returned to the vicinity of the Li Mansion. But he suddenly felt that blood-thirsty killing intention so close to his own body. He had no option but to mobilize his Xuan Qi as he prepared to move into action at a seconds notice. He had clearly felt that sharp killing intention. [Its terrifying!]
Only the worlds top assassin had the ability to emit such an intense killing intention. [Such a ferocious killing intention could even kill a Great Master like me.] Therefore, Lei Wu Bei didnt dare to neglect it. He released his powerful spiritual pressure, and then waited alertly.
Hit-man Juns killing intention and murderous aura were far beyond that of an ordinary person. And Jun Mo Xie was well aware of it. His strength may not have been very tyrannical. However, that didnt lower his killing intention.
Lei Wu Bei concentrated hard as he remained there silent, calm and unmoving. [That cold killing intention suddenly disappeared, and everything is calm again. In fact, theres no sign of any danger I cant help but find this strange. Was I imagining it? But why would I imagine something like this?]
He wouldve let his guard down since he felt that he had been overly suspicious a lurking enemy. But, that murderous aura had momentarily resurfaced just when he was about to do this. Moreover, that murderous aura had appeared very close to his body. However, there was no one present near him
Lei Wu Bei was about to move into action when that extremely terrible and lofty killing intention suddenly disappeared; it had vanished without a trace.
Lei Wu Bei was terrified! [What kind of a peerless killer would possess such a terrifying skill?!] Lei Wu Beis entire body was covered in cold sweat. This was because he had suddenly recalled a terrifying person.
This persons Xuan Level might not have been anywhere-near Yun Bei Chen and Li Jue Tian, but Lei Wu Beis chest had stiffened at the mere thought of him; this person was a very formidable individual. He had been active for dozens of years, and no one had ever escaped him once he had decided to assassinate them.
This man was a legend among the community of assassins. Everyone avoided him like the plague. Even Yun Bei Chen and Li Jue Tian had never dared to take this man lightly.
He was a frightening killer with mythical abilities universally recognized as the living embodiment of death.
He was the greatest assassin Chu Qi Hun!
[Who else could emit such a sharp, powerful and fatal killing intention? Who besides Chu Qi Hun is capable of hiding right beside me without me becoming aware of their presence? Who besides Chu Qi Hun can disappear once I detected their killing intention?]
[Theres no one else not anywhere in the world!]
[Even Yun Bei Chen and Li Jue Tian wouldnt be able to pull this off! They can defeat me. In fact, they can kill me! However, its impossible for them to hide right beside me without my knowledge but Chu Qi Hun has.]
Lei Wu Beis became more cautious as he became increasingly sure about this. And the more cautious he got the more intense that feeling of fear became.
Man is always full of doubts and fear when he faces the unknown. And the Great Master was no exception especially since he was aware that he was facing a formidable enemy he couldnt beat.
Lei Wu Bei was confident that his Xuan Level and strength was in no way beneath Chu Qi Huns. However, Chu Qi Hun was known to like making the first move; very unexpectedly at that. It would cost Master Lei very dearly to be caught off-guard. Getting ambushed by someone of the same level was no joke.
Lei Wu Bei was somewhat afraid.
Chu Qi Hun was considered a Supreme Master of his arts, but he wasnt counted amongst the Eight Great Maters. Consequently, that assassin would never attack from the front even when killing an extremely weak person. So much so that even a person whom Chu Qi Hun could defeat by blowing air on him was never attacked in a straightforward manner.
This Supreme Assassin was extremely meticulous from the standard of assassins. He never left a single loose thread. His ability had reached the point of abnormality. His very name could give any man goosebumps. This was the main reason why the Supreme Assassin never got public fame like the Eight Great Masters.
Though Chu Qi Hun wasnt considered one of the Eight Great Masters, but he was the most terrifying man in this world. This was a well-known fact. Even the Eight Great Masters had publicly accepted this.
Lei Wu Bei paid careful attention to his surroundings as he spoke in a low voice, Is the person whos arrived the Supreme Assassin? Elder Brother Chu Qi Hun? Ah, I dont know what offence Ive committed that Elder Brother Chu Qi Hun has personally arrived for me. And its a great honor to have been taken so seriously. But were both counted in the supreme ranks so greeting each other before a fight to the death would cause no harm, right?
There was silence all around as the autumn wind whistled the dead leaves fell and spiraled into the air. But there was no reply.
If someone had replied then it wouldve meant that ghosts truly existed. The only spectator had no choice but to hide in the Hong Jun Pagoda. The individual hiding inside the Hong Jun Pagoda was obviously Jun Mo Xie. However, the Hit-man Jun had decided not to utter a word. He eagerly looked forward to watch Lei Wu Bei misunderstand the situation. The greater the misunderstanding the better it would be for the Young Master Jun
Wont Elder Brother Chu give me face? Lei Wu Bei gnashed his teeth. His voice was full of anger. Has the Elder Brother changed his mind? Would he not battle me to death?
No sound was issued in reply.
Lei Wu Bei calmed down, but his demeanor continued to become more imposing. He spoke in a deep voice; it sounded similar to the calm before a volcanic explosion, He he is Elder Brother Chu afraid to face Lei Wu Bei? Thats okay Elder Brother can return whenever hes gained his confidence. I shall eagerly look forward to seeing you again.
He had finished speaking. Then, his body transformed into that of a spirit dragon who was soaring towards the ninth heaven, and disappeared without a trace.
Jun Mo Xie stepped-out from the nothingness of the Hong Jun Pagoda the moment Lei Wu Bei left. He had been stretching out half of his head to listen to Lei Wu Beis words. He had almost burst into laughter when Lei Wu Bei had addressed the air in such a serious tone.
However, he was awestruck to realize that his fellow-assassin enjoyed such a terrifying reputation among the Great Masters. So much so that the mere thought of him had worried the Fifth Master of the Eight Great Masters. In fact, the Cold-Blooded Master had seemed scared.
[This Supreme Assassin must be exceptional. The fact that an assassin could have this effect was an achievement on its own.]
Jun Mo Xie returned home relaxed and unrestrained while marveling at that Supreme Assassin...
Lei Wu Bei quickly arrived at the small courtyard. His body floated as he opened the gate. The four people inside stood up at the sight of him, and greeted him respectfully, Master, you have returned!
Lei Wu Bei snorted coldly. His face was expressionless as he took a seat.
Master, what was the outcome of this trip? Can we assume that Master has taught Solitary Falcon a lesson? Lei Jian Hong was Lei Wu Beis son. However, he never addressed him as his father in front of his fellow disciples. This was to demonstrate equality of treatment. But, he was the only person inside the room who had the courage to ask this question.
This matter is complicated; well discuss it later, Lei Wu Bei spat-out these words in a solemn manner. You be more careful with your actions from now. The atmosphere in the Tian Xiang City is very treacherous! There are many Crouching Tigers and Hidden Dragons present in this city! Youll have to think hard before acting on every matter
He thought for a while, but then finally resisted. Lei Wu Bei had decided against mentioning the Supreme Assassin, Chu Qi Hun. He was aware that the name itself wouldve been enough to frighten his disciples. This wouldve made them hesitant to take actions. His disciples were at the Sky Xuan Level but that was too meager. They wouldve gained no benefit from knowing of his involvement.
[Chu Qi Hun has decided to make a target out of me; I shouldnt tell my disciples about it till the outcome of this battle is decided. Why should I make my disciples unnecessarily nervous by speaking of this matter?]
The four disciples were no fools. They had heard the tone of their Masters voice and had realized that the matter regarding the Solitary Falcon hadnt gone as smoothly as they had imagined. They restrained themselves, and enquired no further regarding that topic.
Lei Wu Bei got up and spoke in a tranquil manner, Lets go! Come with me to look at the Sixth! He seems to have lost his Xuan Qi. Lets see if we can recover it somewhat. If that doesnt work then well have no option but to send him to the King of Malicious Medicines.
Lei Jian Hong trembled and cried out in alarm, Master!
Lei Jian Hong snorted since his master left the room without giving a reply. The four disciples complexions were heavy as they followed behind; listening to their Master mention the King of Malicious Medicines had made their hearts heavy.
