Chapter 37: Murder and Plunder
Translator: Novel_Saga Editor: Novel_Saga
The Heavens want me to die! A bitter feeling rose in the hearts of the six thieves.
All they could see was the six brilliant yellow lights, completely ignoring the person before them. They had not noticed that the person before did not even have the overwhelming aura of a true Earth Xuan expert!
The overwhelming feeling of despair caused a momentary lapse of judgement from these six men. However, it was also this small moment, which sealed their fate!
This was the reason why Jun Mo Xie shot out those coin shaped darts filled with the unique colour of radiance. He had predicted the occurrence of such a moment! For one to be a great assassin, he must have an insight on how the opponent would think. According to Jun Mo Xie’s calculations, should these six men encounter an expert they could not defeat, they would act as if had been caught in a quicksand! This moment was what Jun Mo Xie was waiting for!
When a Silver Xuan expert who was just injured suddenly met a peak Earth Xuan expert, he would face an unthinkable fear and horror! This feeling was like waiting for an inevitable death! Furthermore, these men were in the midst of being hunted, it was a matter of fact that these feelings would rise up exponentially.
This one small moment was what Jun Mo Xie was looking for!
If he had directly attacked without any tricks, then three of these six men would be able to dodge his attack. Rather than the strength of a well-aimed dart, he had split the strength between six darts, which will far lesser! Even if only one of them survived, Jun Mo Xie would be in for a world of hurt! They may all be injured, but any one of them was more than a match for Jun Mo Xie.
The reason why none of ‘Xiaoli Feidao’s Flying Daggers’ was issued in vain was because only one was issued each time!
Jun Mo Xie’s focus was naturally on the Silver Xuan expert. Even though he was seriously injured, he was still the one with the highest amount of pressure! He was also keen enough to notice Jun Mo Xie’s presence!
After the six dazzling coin shaped darts appeared, twelve dark grey lights secretly flew out. However, the six pieces of darts had already attracted their undivided attention. In addition, the heavy downpour hid the dark grey lights away. All six of them had all panicked as they dodged the six incoming darts. None of them dared to block the darts with their weapons, fearing the internal damage that might result from the strength of an ‘Earth Xuan expert’!
In truth, were those projectile weapons really sent out by an ‘Earth Xuan expert’, none a single one of them would even have the opportunity to take a glimpse of the yellow radiance before being killed off. Not even the strongest one, the Silver Xuan expert was exempted! Unfortunately, in their state of shock, none of them thought of this fact!
Even after moving to dodge the incoming projectiles, two miserable screams echoed out. They were unable to avoid the coin-shaped dart in time and it pierced the area above their collarbone, their blood sprayed out as they fell to the ground. Those who had fallen to the ground even believed themselves to be already dead. Having taken a blow from an Earth Xuan expert, what can they who were only at the Ninth level do but await obediently for their deaths? Not to mention, those darts had already pierced their throats… they did not notice that the darts had only penetrated the area above their collarbone and did not even cut off their windpipes!
Following the second wave of projectiles, four more screams echoed out into the night. Twelve flying daggers struck either their throats or their foreheads. Those four men who had just dodged the coin shaped darts had their bodies struck by at least two daggers each, every one of them piercing their vital parts! Their faces expressed a look of disbelief as they tightly gripped onto the hilt of the dagger on their throats; their bodies remained upright as they fell face first onto the ground.
As for the Silver Xuan expert which received Jun Mo Xie’s utmost “care”, his situation was far more miserable in comparison for he had already been grievously injured to begin with. His head and body were pierced with up to four daggers! All of them penetrated so deep that not even the handle of the daggers could be seen!
Even upon their death, they were unable to understand why. Didn’t they already avoid that first fatal strike? Why did they suddenly suffer from another mortal wound from these flying daggers? As an Earth Xuan expert, facing off against them whose existence was akin to ants, once his first strike had failed, then considering his status, should have stopped attacking. Why did he attack again? Why?
He actually utilized sneak attacks against people who were two whole levels below him. Moreover, after the first attack failed, he actually sent in a second one… Could it be that the current group of Earth Xuan experts were all shameless bastards without any bearings? In this world, Earth Xuan experts were all individuals who placed utmost importance on their reputations. Since when did they become so shameless?
The ‘Earth Xuan expert’, Jun Mo Xie, showed no hesitation as he moved in with lightning speed, smoothly pulling out the flying dagger from the forehead of a corpse. He then rushed towards the two men who had fallen prior and viciously stabbed one of them directly in his heart!
Although these two men had suffered no small amount of injury, it was not enough to be instantly fatal. As of now, they were only at a loss for what to do due to their fear, they still had possessed a certain level of combat capabilities. An enemy who can still pose a threat must not be allowed to live! Even if they were on the verge of death! What happened to him in his previous life was the greatest lesson for Jun Mo Xie! The only enemies who cannot threaten him are those who are dead! Killing intent surged from Jun Mo Xie, his face cold!
The flying dagger was tightly gripped by Jun Mo Xie, the tip of his feet positioned outwards. At the same time, the dagger had stabbed into the first man, he started moving. The hand used to stab earlier loosened as he hurled himself to the next victim. Like a cyclone, he launched his other hand downwards, forming a cleaver, hacking into the man’s throat!
This series of actions were performed in quick succession, enough to cause the average man to miss out on it. The very moment that the yellow coin shaped darts flew out, Jun Mo Xie’s had already moved. When the four men cried out miserably, Jun Mo Xie was already pulling out the flying dagger from one man’s head. Even before the four dead bodies fell flat onto the ground, the flying dagger had already found its way into the heart of the first survivor. After that, his other hand had also cleaved the throat of the second and last survivor!
The man who was pierced in the heart by the dagger did not even have the luxury of making a single sound as he died on the spot!
Finally, the cracking sound coming from the last target whose throat had been fractured resounded out at the same time that the sound of four bodies hitting the ground was heard!
After completing his actions, Jun Mo Xie stood up as he gasped for breath. Using his current strength, the movements that he did had far exceeded what he was capable of! The original Jun Mo Xie had simply caused too many problems for this body. If it wasn’t for the shedding and his constant exercise during the past month, there was no way he could have managed to do the earlier set of actions.
The amount of time he had before was simply too short, he was unable to gain enough strength and what he had done was like exceeding his bank limit. Once his spiritual force had his tension relaxed, he was bombarded by the backlash from the violent movements made earlier. He felt pain assailing him from every part of the body, his muscles and bones felt as though it tearing itself apart.
The last survivor coughed as he spat out blood, spraying directly at Jun Mo Xie’s face. As their eyes locked, he stared with resentment at Jun Mo Xie, hissing. “You… you are not an… Ear-” It was only at his moment of death did he came to realize that this person before him was definitely not an Earth Xuan expert!
“You bunch of pig heads!” Jun Mo Xie sighed, feeling pity for him. “If I was really an Earth Xuan expert, would I need to resort to sneak attacks against you bunch of trash?”
The man’s throat released a series of strange sounds as his eyes suddenly glinted with fury, an expression of resentment and rage on his face! His body arched forward, his body which was at the end of its life suddenly found the strength to lift a trembling hand, pointing at Jun Mo Xie.
He seemed as though he wanted to say something but not a sound came out. He simply stared at Jun Mo Xie.
Not long after, he fell back onto the ground with a thud. After twitching for a bit, he finally breathed his last; his eyes wide open, even to his death.
Originally, he still had some strength left which would have made it possible for him to survive a little longer. Who could have known that Jun Mo Xie’s words had instead provoked him to his death!
Moving around, Jun Mo Xie retrieved the coin-shaped darts and daggers. At the same time, he also conducted a search on their bodies. Jun Mo Xie’s actions were natural, as though he was merely checking his own pockets, completely disregarding the fact that those six men were dead.
His training in his previous life had embedded within him a calmness, which not break even if Mount Tai were to collapse before him. Besides, Jun Mo Xie had witnessed far more situations that were far bloodier than this…
He finally found a small parcel in the hands of the Silver Xuan expert. After weighing it for a bit, Jun Mo Xie then reached out for the bamboo hat, which was on the ground. Placing it beneath his rib area, he strode off, turning into the corner. Behind him, the heavy rain continued, creating a huge curtain, cutting off Jun Mo Xie from this bloody scene as though they were of two different worlds!
