425. Now You Know What I Am Capable Of? (1)
Rong Yi and others froze there.
Rong Yi dug into his ear, “Did I hear it correctly? Someone trying to challenge me?”
He hadn’t been in the cultivation world for a long time. How could anyone would challenge him?
Is it possible someone knows that he could refine the enchanted runes and aim at him?
“You may just happen to share the same name,” said Yin Jinye.
But this possibility was very small. Rong Yi still thought someone was aiming at him.
Bu Qi and Xiang Lv looked at each other and he said, “Generally, the challenger would be fully prepared.”
Rong Yi nodded, “See how the other side says first.”
Then that guy said, “I have the challenge letter, I want to challenge Rong Yi from the chief’s mansion of Guiling town in Beiba Prefecture.”
Rong Yi sneered, “See? It’s really me.”
Yin Jinye faintly narrowed his eyes, “This guy’s voice is very strange.”
Bu Qi and Xiang Lv also said they had never heard this man’s voice.
“Now that the other party shows the challenge letter, let’s go and see who is challenging me,” said Rong Yi.
They went back near the ring then.
The Changsun family and the Nine Void Sect were still quarrelling with each other, however, because some people wanted to use the ring, they had to move to the side, and now people of the Nine Void Sect were very curious about whether this Rong Yi was the Rong Yi they knew.
When they had left the ring, there was only one person left on the stage, who dressed in a grey gauze robe, with a grey shawl over his face, and fanning himself from time to time with an elegant grey fan.
People who knew Rong Yi ran to the ring to watch, including Qi Lan who was wandering in the street, even Rong Weiyi who had left also turned back, and the chiefs of Beiba Prefecture were curious to come over to watch what the one who could refine enchanted runes was really capable of.
Someone immediately recognized the identity of the other side, “It’s an assassination cultivator!”
Someone asked curiously, “An assassination cultivator? Why would they want to challenge people?”
“Probably trying to kill the invitee.”
“Judging from his fan, he should be the number assassination cultivator at the Mating Phase of Assassination Sect—Jian Ku! It’s said that this guy could approach without casting a shadow and leave without leaving a trace. No one has ever seen his true face, or knows what kind of spiritual root he owns.”
Rong Yi had not heard about assassination cultivators, so he asked Yin Jinye, “What is assassination cultivators?”
Yin Jinye explained to him, “They receive others’ spiritual stones and assassinate people for them, in Assassination Sect, there are demon cultivators, evil cultivators and ghost cultivators. They all live on receiving tasks of assassination to earn spiritual stones, so for that, they call themselves assassination cultivators.”
Rong Yi was speechless, just a bunch of killers, do they need to make it sound so noble?
Seeing that Rong Yi still hadn’t appeared, Jiang Ku closed the fan and said through sound transmission, “Rong Yi, I have been waiting for you in the ring, come out quickly.”
Rong Yi asked Yin Jinye and others, “If I don’t accept the challenge, what will happen?”
Xiang Lv crooned, “I guess you would be despised for a lifetime, or you couldn’t get out of this town.”
Bu Qi chuckled, “Up to now, no one has ever refused to accept the challenge. Shifu can be the first one.”
Rong Yi showed the whites of his eyes, “I don’t know if I should feel lucky or not to have a disciple like you.”
Yin Jinye who had just received a message from Xunyi Cabinet said, “Jian Ku is fog spiritual root, be careful.”
Rong Yi picked ahis eyebrow, “Fog spiritual root?”
Bu Qi frowned, “The arts of us who own mutant thunder-fire root will have some difficulty with him. Shifu, you got to be careful.”
Yin Jinye took Rong Yi’s hand, and said to him with the voice only he could hear, “He should hold some bad intention. You must use the greatest ability to shock people on spot, otherwise the one who is behind this will let more people challenge you, and then try to kill you while you play to exhaustion.”
“I know.” Rong Yi gave him a quick kiss on the lips, and flew into the ring on the sword.
Yin Jinye’s corner of the mouth bent upward, but he quickly pressed it down, and then ordered people around to watch out in case anyone would assassinate Rong Yi in the dark.
People of Nine Void Sect looked disappointed. They had thought it was that Rong Yi they knew, then he could vent their anger for them. But they really thought too much.
Jian Ku looked at Rong Yi, “So you are Rong Yi?”
Rong Yi took out two long swords and said with a smile, “It’s so funny. You challenged me but even don’t know my appearance?”
“…” Jian Ku stared on his robs. Judging from the aura it revealed, his spiritual qi should be dense than his, apparently it was no ordinary robes.
He hesitated and finally gave up the equipment competition. He fanned the fan and said, “Before the competition, I will introduce myself first. My name is Jian Ku, an assassination cultivator from…”
Rong Yi hooked his lips, “Are you trying to say that before I die, I should know in whose hands I die in?”
“It’s good that you know.” Jian Ku said coldly, and then with a wave of his fan, dense fog spread the whole place, and those watchers couldn’t see what was happening on the ring. But through Jian Ku’s arts, he knew he should own fog spiritual root.
Someone said, “He is a mutant spiritual root. It’s hard to win over a someone with the fog spiritual root.”
