He grinned. “Exterminating an entire family is the same! Starting with concentrated and detailed attacks from various aspects, attacking the mental fortitude of this family in waves. Let them slowly break down on their own to the very end. Even though they had the strength to take a shot, they’ll lose it because of extreme shock and distress… because their minds have already thoroughly broke down! This is the highest realm of an assassin!”
The person who said this was definitely not some senior figure of the three Holy Lands anymores. He was worse than those so-called demons. In fact, this fellow was a vicious demon; he used to be notorious in the past for a period of time. This ‘Slaughterer of Thousand Souls’ Wang Wei Ran—hundreds of years ago, this was a name that could terrorize children to stop them from crying.
The faces on the other three men looking at him changed. One of them said, “Brother Wang, even if it’s exterminating a family, just killing them quickly saves so much trouble. Why go through the trouble of torturing them like this? Wasting time and effort aside, it damages virtue!”
Wang Wei Ran chuckled. “In life, it’s all about seeking pleasure. You guys have never experienced it, so you wouldn’t understand that sort of excitement and pleasure from torturing others at your will. That sort of feeling is truly amazing…”
All the other three people couldn’t help but shiver. We are all normal people; how could we compare to a demon like you who is capable of doing all sorts of evil!
Wang Wei Ran continued. “Since I joined the Elusive Land of Immortals, I’m no longer as good at doing such things, but this time, the Lords are making a too big of a fuss in dealing with these few big families… they’ve over exaggerated. But… I’m not sure if you guys have noticed? The Lords were very specific in their choice on who to send on this task. And this choice has made it clear that the Lords obviously do not want to let these families die a quick and easy death! They want them to be thoroughly tortured and trampled upon them! Although the Lords did not explicitly say it, but… haha… the hidden meaning is clear!”
“Oh? Brother Wang do explain more.” The other three men revealed an interested expression.
“Hmph. The people the Lords sent out this time—all the leaders are dissident and notorious people in the past! Take myself, for example. Who has ever regarded me as a righteous, chivalrous person? Even if I joined the three Holy Lands, so what? I am still that Slaughterer of Thousand Souls from the past!”
Wang Wei Ran laughed coldly. “But why did the Lords send people like me here? And even appoint us as the leader of the team. Amongst the four of us, I am not one who would humble myself, but in terms of strength, cultivation and even wisdom, I am not superior than anyone. I am well aware of this, but if there is something I am better at, it is merely the fact that I am better at torturing others.
“Why didn’t the Lords send all those righteous fellows instead? Has it really never crossed your minds?” Wang Wei Ran chuckled coldly. “And, before we came, the Lord only gave very simple instructions. He did not give any specific arrangements that we must follow. Obviously, he is saying that we can do things however we want! We make the decisions! No matter what we want to do, there is no problem!
“No wonder, the Lord only said: Wait for an opportunity to get rid of them. But he did not talk about general battle strategies and arrangements. We thought that it was because it was unnecessary because the opponents are wordly families who were weak. So that is how it is…” The other three people were enlightened!
“Hmph. The brother of our Lord, Venerable Xiao Yao died tragically in the snowy mountains. And almost six hundred top experts from the three sects. Not a single one of them was weaker than the four of us. But they all perished and were buried under the snow mountain! And nine Saints! Only Demon Eye Saint who survived, although he is completely discouraged and disappointed. How could anger from a vengeance like this be simply vented with just killing?”
Wang Wei Ran spoke with great sincerity. “The Lord wants to vent this anger! But he is too embarrassed to say it outright. After all, he cannot afford to lose the three Holy Lands’ reputation of being righteous and virtuous! And he has too many things to be worried about! We, at the bottom, will naturally get our rewards for settling things properly and helping those at the top.”
“But in that case, if someone really comes to settle scores afterwards, then wouldn’t the few of us become the scapegoats? You said so earlier: we lost so many experts before. The opponent is definitely extremely strong; if there are anymore changes, the Lord will definitely not take action. But we are chess pieces that can be easily abandoned! The Lord can sleep with no worries by simply pushing the few of us out, but the few of us would be completely done for…”
The three people still frowned when they worried over this aspect. Wisdom that had accumulated over hundred over years—who would want to risk all that?
“Settle scores? Who would settle scores? To outrageously fall out with the three Holy Lands over a few wordly families, there is only Jun Mo Xie in ten thousands of years! Today, that scoundrel Jun Mo Xie is dead! Who else will still come and settle scores?”
Wang Wei Ran sneered. “For ten thousands of years, how many people dare to really oppose the three Holy Lands? Your concerns are completely illogical!”
After this reminder, all three of them were relieved. “That’s right. Saint Emperor Zhan sacrificed his reputation and made the decision to kill Jun Mo Xie on the spot . Eradicating a huge threat for the three Holy Lands. This sort of act is really admirable! You have to know, the reputation of a Saint Emperor is even more important than his life…”
“Indeed! Since ancient times, there has never been a powerful person who did not treasure his reputation; even a common person also knows to protect his image! Saint Emperor Zhan tarnished his own reputation to assassinate Jun Mo Xie; it is truly courageous!”
The four people began to share their praise. As if that Saint Emperor Zhan’s sacrificial act of assassinating a junior was a actually heroic legend of sorts…
“Today, it should be Old Sun’s turn to be on duty, right?” Wang Wei Ran looked over to the man in white beside him. “Get moving after you’re done eating the roasted goose. Take an excursion to the Dongfang Family to work your bones and digest the food.”
The white-clothed man beside him, Old Sun, had a big black mole on his face. He chuckled after hearing this. “No problem. A mere Dongfang Family—it’s not my first time going there anyways. Has there ever been an instance where it was dangerous? But… after this matter, this old man intends to have his fill with the females of the Dongfang Family. When the time comes, I hope the three of you can help me keep this secret.”
“I am only doing my duty and finding out news; I have no knowledge of anything else and will not pay attention to them.” Wang Wei Ran cackled, wriggling his brows.
“That’s right, we won’t see anything… Old Sun, just go and have your fill! How could you not eat your fill for such intense exercise! Hahaha…” The other two said.
“I thank the generosity of the three of you then!” Old Sun was extremely elated. “To be very honest, I really have been holding it in so badly these couple of years… To the point that even my skills are having problems… If I had known earlier that it’d be like this, I wouldn’t have agreed to join no matter what…”
“Haha…” All four of them broke out in loud laughter.
“After hearing your conversation, only this last sentence makes some sense. As expected, you guys shouldn’t have agreed to join the three Holy Lands. Because if you had refused, then you won’t have to sacrifice your lives here like this.” A gentle voice piped up.
“Who? Who is it!” The four of them leapt to their feet. That voice clearly came from somewhere near them, but not a single one of them had noticed anything! The immense strength of this person could be imagined!
The four of them instantly turned around, only to see a youth donned in white robes, standing just a meter away from them, his hands behind his back, a warm and graceful smile on his face. His eyes were fixed on that roasted goose. He clicked his tongue and said, “Such great aroma! It’s a pity that the four of you did not become chefs. Why did you become fighters? How can that sort of bloody and massacre compare to the safety of being a chef…”
Wang Wei Ran felt his heart sinking. The other party had managed to come this near to them so silently! This was a tabooed distance that could allow one to kill someone just by stretching out their arms!
He released his spirit sense to check the opponent out. But to his shock, his spirit sense could not detect anything!
The other party was clearly standing right here, but under the spirit sense’s search, the place was just empty!
Wang Wei Ran may not be powerful, but he had much experience in the pugilistic world and was able to roughly understanding the other party’s strength. He cursed in his mind, but quickly put on a smile, cupping his hands. In a respectful and polite manner, he said, “May I ask if this young master has any requests, coming to this place? Haha, if it is help that you need, the four of us are willing to lend our strengths. If it is within our means, we absolutely will not refuse…”
“Oh? Really?” Jun Mo Xie tilted his head, looking at him in amusement.
“Of course! Just give us your orders if young master has any.” Wang Wei Ran was obviously getting more and more respectful in his attitude. To people like him who originally dwelled in their evil ways, as long as they could keep their lives, would be willing to do anything. As long as they managed to escape with their lives, they could seek revenge another time. Life was the most important thing!
“May I ask for the name of this young master?” But at this moment, Old Sun suddenly asked, blinking away in shock. This sentence left Wang Wei Ran swearing away in his mind!
You haven’t figured out who this person is until now? We may still stand a chance of survival if we act confused! But you just had to go ahead and asked! That’s f*cking stupid! Are you looking to die?! Even if you want to die, don’t drag me along with you!
Didn’t you see me lowering myself and not asking for his name? Other than Jun Mo Xie, is there a second person like this in this whole world? Are you a pig?
Wait, if he is Jun Mo Xie… then why didn’t he die? Saint Emperor Zhan had clearly said that he killed him on the spot, and there were many Saint levelled experts who witnessed it with their own eyes too…
Wang Wei Ran began to have his doubts, but it did not last for long.
“Can’t you guess?” Jun Mo Xie blinked his eyes in disappointment and asked, “Don’t tell me that until now, you guys still cannot recognise who I am?” His expression was really upset, as if it was an extremely unacceptable thing for the other party to not be able to recognise him…
Beads of perspiration appeared on the tip of Old Sun’s nose. “I’d like to ask young master to enlighten me.” The same time he had said this, his heart was drumming away. He was praying fervently in his heart. Please, please please please… Don’t let it be that little jinx…
