Entry Into The City
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Di Fuyi raised his hand to release seven spiritual crystals into the air. They floated in a straight line and shone with sparkling light. He looked at the guards at the top of the wall and demanded, “Here are the spiritual crystals. Open the gate!”
It was the first time that the guards had seen so many spiritual crystals at once. The leader hesitated a little out of jealousy, but he still had to hold onto the same principle.
Zhao Fengxing explained the situation to the duo. While he was explaining, many eyes focused intensely on Gu Xijiu, as they were hopeful that her presence would change the situation for the better.
Frowningly, Gu Xijiu looked up into the sky and realized that the rain of blood would fall in half an hour. These people needed to enter the city as quickly as possible. She had made a promise to the deceased elders to make sure that everyone would arrive safely in Luo Hua City.
After a moment of consideration, she took out a huge red crystal from her sleeve. It was two times bigger than the size of the ordinary crystals. If the red crystals were third-class gems, this one belonged in the second class. It was very rare to come across this size of crystal. One such crystal was equivalent to three ordinary ones.
She showed the crystal proudly. “I would like to offer you another second class gem, in exchange for shelter for all of us.”
The guard fixed his eyes on the red crystal. He knew the type of gem very well. Hesitantly, he answered, “I cannot do so. I did not set the rule. The governor made it. I dare not do as I please.”
“Please invite the governor. I would like to have a word.”
The guard smirked. “Lady, our governor will not simply see anyone. It is not easy for you to meet him. Unless…”
“Unless, what?” Di Fuyi interrupted coldly, and the guard was taken by surprise. The city guard was used to acting arrogantly. He was not highly positioned, but he bore an important responsibility. Everyone who entered or left the city must act according to his conditions. The people had to ingratiate with him in order to have a smooth journey. He was not afraid of anyone, except for a few members of the city’s noble people.
He gave Di Fuyi a lewd expression. “The governor has always been very considerate to beautiful women. The lady here is obviously very attractive. If she agreed to spend a night with the governor, he would probably…”
Before he could finish, a hard slap in his face stopped him from making any offensive remarks. The figure of a man flashed before his eyes and slapped him so hard that he hit the floor. It could have easily sent him down the wall.
The intruder obviously did not hold back his strength. Hence, the guard was caught in a daze after the slap. Dizzy, with his eyes blurred, all he could hear was a buzzing in his ears. Then, blood started oozing out from the corners of his mouth.
The guard was surrounded by many of his men, but no one noticed the attacker. When they finally realized it, the guard was already in a daze. They had never expected that someone was brave enough to attack their leader. Driven by a sense of anxiety and indignation, they started surrounding the man in a defensive manner.
The man raised his arm and put a sword across the guard’s neck. “What were you saying? Would you like to repeat?”
The voice of the man was soft as if conversing, but the guard was overwhelmed in insecurities from the icy tone of his voice. He had to surrender under the pressure of the sword on his neck. He tried very hard to focus on the appearance of the intruder. The man was in purple robes, with his face concealed under a mask. The guard could only see the man’s dark eyes through the holes. At this very moment, his eyes were bent, as if smiling.
