Sharley was ready to explode on these two border guards. But surprisingly, no one from her party was going to interfere.
They were all quite suspicious of these guards that they had never heard anything about.
Sharley cracked her knuckles before she smiled and said:
"Come to think of it, we have been through quite a few cities, towns, and villages through our journey, but we never heard of any tax collectors being stationed at the border? I wonder why?"
The guards were unfazed by her question as they looked as natural as possible while saying:
"We have been stationed quite a short time ago. The news about the Empire's tax collection shall spread pretty soon. Missy, if you don't have the money, you might as well scram! You are wasting our time here."
Sharley couldn't help but laugh as the guards felt their bodies grow heavier by the second.
Soon enough, they were kneeling in front of Sharley while she glared at them from above.<
The bandits were going to scatter like a bunch of headless chickens. They were all extremely scared of Bai Feng, who shrugged their biggest trap off as if it was nothing. The leader could feel his legs go soft as Bai Feng turned his gaze towards him. He was already making his way towards their hideout at his fastest speed, but he soon realized that something wasn't right. When he looked back, he saw all of his compatriots were unconscious on the ground, and Bai Feng was directly behind him, holding him by his fur jacket. He was running in the same place for more than a minute, and he didn't even realize it because of fear! As the leader, he knew when to beg and when to fight, so he fell to his knees and started to kowtow to Bai Feng as if he was his ancestor, crying out with snot dripping from his nose as he said: "Oh great master, please, please, we didn't know you were going through the mountain pass today, or we wouldn't have set these trap
Bai Feng's eyes remained closed as he expanded his senses to their limits.He created a dome-like area around himself using his enhanced senses, focusing them inward and creating a space where nothing could escape his notice.This was a technique he thought about and created due to his difficulty fighting against opponents who had proficiency in stealth.However, it was in its experimental stages because he never had time to use it anywhere. Nor did he have anyone proficient in stealth who was in his team that he could train against.This would be the first test run against the monster who did this to these two children.Bai Feng's arm went to the side, grabbing ahold of a scaly arm which suddenly became fair and silky smooth in his gaze.However, Bai Feng wasn't enticed by the sight of the arm as he started to apply pressure.Suddenly, the arm slipped out of Bai Feng's grasp, seemingly as if there were no bones inside of it while bec
The she-devil became extremely demure after the purifying torture, and she told Sharley everything she knew.They were currently at the edge of the First Draconic Continents wilderness, where no living beings could be spotted.It was a good place for the she-devil to go to after she captured her victims.They were quite far away from civilization.However, that didn't matter, because this would be better. After all, they needed to go to the Demon Dance continent.With her knowledge of both The First Draconic Continent and the Demon Dance continent, they started traveling through the wilderness before returning to the surface in the mountains.It would be easier to travel on the ground rather than in the sky if you had a good guide because the mountains were all empty.Thus they would be able to avoid any problems like this and get where they wanted to.The traveling through the mountains was akin to going through a maze, but wi
The trio invited Bai Feng to their sect. They were all from the main branch of the Demon Taming sect, and they had come out to hunt for runaway devils this time around. The she-devil that just died had a formation on her that triggered a contact back at the sect, and they had been sent to capture and bring her back. While she was weak and useless, she was still their property, and running away wasn't allowed. However, now that she was dead, it didn't matter anymore. The trio started to give indications towards the location of the sect, and Sylph controlled the cloud towards it. The trio didn't try to demean or say anything about Bai Feng's weaker party members as they could feel how Bai Feng's eyes were always targeting their backs. Bai Feng sighed as he sat down on the cloud. He didn't try to be intimidating back then, but his power seemed to intimidate the trio, even though he only leaked a little bit of it to make them see him in a
Bai Feng felt as if he was a deer surrounded by a pack of wolves. The situation at hand was rather troublesome, even for Bai Feng. The thing was that Bai Feng had never fought a Qi master before. So he wasn't sure what they were able to do. Their auras were wild and toxic to his senses which came from the fact that they all had devils sealed inside of them. It was a little bit harder to get a read on them, especially since their cultivation bases were above his own. If they didn't want to, they could just hide their power from him. However, Bai Feng's cultivation was also unknown to his assailants. As a body cultivator, unless he unleashed his battle aura on his own accord, no one could sense him if they didn't focus their senses properly. Bai Feng could feel that all of them were rather wild fighters, which would be a good thing for him. His systematical training with Ah Lam ran through his mind at light speed as he en
Bai Feng didn't understand who was in trouble, but he could feel that something wasn't right with one of his friends.But who was it? Sylph, his sister, or Sharley? Or maybe all three?This was a very bad situation.However, what could he do?Bai Feng was sure he stood no chance against the mission hall elder Shang Kai, and from beyond the arena, there would surely be people stronger than him.There was nothing he could do, and this fact frustrated him immensely.He realized once again how weak he was in this big world, and how strength was something that he needed to grasp. If he was going to live his life how he wanted.Bai Feng couldn't help but grit his teeth as he looked towards the unexplored part of the sect and ended up sighing.Chen Lingxi tried to comfort him, but it didn't help.Bai Feng decided to see where their place was in the inner sect and rest there while waiting for news from his friends.He sti
The first mission was for an inner disciple who had saved his materials for a pill he needed for his breakthrough into the 4th stage of the Qi master realm. His cultivation palace was quite far away from the mission hall, almost standing at the edge of the inner sect. Somewhere near the arena where Bai Feng had to do his test. The disciple in question was a middle-aged man with a dark disposition and sunk-in eyes who wore the colors of the Demon Taming sect. He was rather angry when he was called out by Bai Feng. But when he saw the jade slip in Bai Feng's hands, he immediately became respectful as he invited Bai Feng in. Pill masters were respected individuals because they created the things that everyone needed. Usually, a pill master wouldn't take missions from the sect, and they would be employed in the medicinal hall for a crazy high salary. They didn't come out often to do missions from the sect, and whenever they did, th
Bai Feng waited for the elder to come back.Deeper into the palace, the elder was listening to some reports through a communication device as he nodded:"He had done quite a lot of missions, and all of them were successful. The people who consumed his pills had broken through immediately due to the high quality of the pills he concocted...""Very interesting, this little kid's talent is quite impressive. I wonder why he isn't in the medicinal hall?""There isn't much about his background in the sect records, which means he is a new disciple to boot. The only thing there says that he was accepted in by that weasel Shang Kai."The vampiric elder shook his head as he closed off the communication device and sighed:"I guess I can give him the materials since he had no failures as well."There was a small chest in the room he was in, which he opened before taking out a few peculiar items that he stashed into his robe.He left the ro
