Chapter 458: Second Class Assassination Bounty
Translator: Kazeyuki_ Editor: Jimmy_
Qin Wushuang had to admit that he very much needed these crystal stones at the moment.
"This way, I will not hold back." Qin Wushuang took it and said with a smile.
"Ha ha, Young Master Wushuang, even the Dark Green Cloud Taoist sect would never be able to give away such gift. The Hundred Leaf Qin Clan do not have other valuable goods, but we do have some crystal stones. This is called living off the mountain."
Qin Wushuang said with a smile: "By having crystal stones, we will have everything else!"
Qin Bolong laughed and nodded: "That's right. With crystal stones, it would be others coming to ask for our help. Although the Hundred Leaf Qin Clan is not the strongest powerhouse in the Orderly Mountain prefecture, because we produce rich crystal stones, our position is not low either!"
Qin Wushuang cupped his hands in a salute: "Mr. Patriarch, thank you for your generosity. I will take my leave now!"
Qin Bolong felt reluctant to part with him as he patted Qin Wushuang's shoulder: "Young Master Wushuang, in the future when you have some time, be sure to remember to come visit the Hundred Leaf Qin Clan."
"Of course. Patriarch Qin, take care! Hundred Leaf Qin Clan, take care!"
"Take care!" Qin Bolong nodded heavily, "I hope all the Qin disciples in the world will take care!"
After he had bid farewell to the Hundred Leaf Qin Clan, Qin Wushuang, Bao Bao, and the Purple Flame Electric Beast set foot on a new journey. At the Orderly Mountain Prefecture, the battle at the Hundred Leaf Qin Clan had indeed been large-scale and vigorous.
Regarding the exact details of the battle, except for General Manager Su, the only fish that had escaped the net, no one was aware of it. However, the news that spread to the outside world seemed genuine.
All sorts of different rumors had raised a tremendous stink. Of course, Qin Wushuang and his two sibling had registered at the Black Raven Royal City. Besides General Manager Su, no one knew that these three had participated in that battle.
Thus, during their journey, although people everywhere talked about the battle at the Hundred Leaf Qin Clan, no one knew that the three main characters was standing right next to them.
On this day, finally, the three of them arrived at the capital city of the Orderly Mountain prefecture.
In the Xuan Yuan Mound, there were a total of seventy-two prefectures. Each prefecture was equivalent to a country in the human countries. The highest ruling area in each prefecture was called the capital city.
The three of them still used the identity as three brothers of the Wu family to pass through the inspection of the capital city.
This capital city was the core of a prefecture and was highly flourishing. It was the most prosperous city Qin Wushuang and his friends had entered ever since coming to the Xuan Yuan Mound.
The state city and royal city he had visited had already given Qin Wushuang plenty of shock.
However, when he saw the true capital city of a prefecture before him, he finally learned what a truly bustling city seemed like and why it was called the Forbidden Spiritual Zone.
At this capital city, even the inspection to enter the city had become much more complicated. Outside the city gate, there were countless patrolling guards that made it appear heavily guarded.
After they had entered the city gate, beneath the city wall, there were rows of bulletin boards full of postings. Some of these bulletin boards were part of the official and some belonged to an organization. There were also some postings targeting individuals.
Thus, at any time, around the bulletin board areas were the most crowded.
Qin Wushuang and his friends saw a crowd of people had gathered beneath the city wall. From the appearance of those people, most of them were freelance martial artists that had come from all sorts of different places.
"You bastard, do you even have eyes, you stepped on my shoes!"
"Who are you cursing at, you bastard?"
From time to time, similar curses emerged from the crowd. However, these people should not be mistaken for being fierce for speaking these words, not many people would use violence for such trivial matter.
Lone shook his head and smiled bitterly: "These people are crazy, right? What are they looking at crowding around here?"
Bao Bao laughed: "You really seem like a tourist. Normally, the city wall right after the city gate is the most ideal place to post a bulletin and mission. The inside of the city wall is the golden area. Posting one notice means money! This is the principle of making good money, what would you know?"
Lone twitched his mouth and seemingly refused to accept it.
"Boss, should we join the show?" Bao Bao suggested.
Qin Wushuang said with a smile: "When in Rome, do what the Romans do, let's go look."
The three of them headed toward the bulletin boards and did not fight for spots. After looking for a while, Bao Bao cried out: "This is the official bulletin board and there's not much to see. There is a lot of people over there, and it must be the place where each organization issues their missions. It has attracted quite a few martial artists from different places."
When Qin Wushuang and his friends arrived at that bulletin board mentioned by Bao Bao, indeed, there were many more people. The number of people was at least five times more than the other places they had checked.
"It's ridiculous. No one had been able to swallow the million gold crystal stones. It seems that the Hundred Leaf Qin Clan must be tough! You see, the rewards has risen to two million!"
"Even if it's at two million, I am afraid that no one will wanna dip their hands into this dirty water. Even an elite warrior like senior Chen Sen had been killed silently by the Hundred Leaf Qin Clan. Could it be that only someone at the Perfect Stage would suffice?"
"For a Perfect Stage at the Void Martial Stage, it would not just take two million gold crystal stones! Without an offer of five million, don't even think about it. Additionally, there are only a few Perfect Stages in our vast Orderly Mountain prefecture. There would be no more than ten people. Which one of these people would lack for money?"
"You are right, which one of these Perfect Stage of Void Martial Stage warriors is not a major figure, and lack for money? Just money alone would not stimulate their appetite."
"Tsk, you few, why are you pretending to know it all when you don't!"
"Hey, Senior Six of Guo, you said that we don't understand, do you? Don't pretend to act like you are wise, be careful that the thunder from the clear sky doesn't strike you to death."
"Tsk, stop it you guys! You guys are just talking incessant nonsense. Just you guys, not to mention two million gold crystal stones, even if the offer was ten million, I am afraid you won't even be able to pluck a single hair from the leg of the Patriarch of the Hundred Leaf Qin Clan."
"So you can, why don't you go pluck one to show us." After being belittled by Senior Guo Six's words, inwardly, they could not accept it.
"I, Senior Guo Six, do not have that skill, but I do find faults in minor details. I will only watch the show if there is , and leave if there isn't. Let me advise you, trouble comes from your mouth."
After getting taught a lesson by the old and experienced Senior Guo Six, those people were unwilling to accept it. However, under the thousands of staring eyes, these people could not do anything.
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang clicked his tongue as he thought that this obstacle faced by the Hundred Leaf Qin Clan would continue. However, since they had so many trump cards, Qin Wushuang was not as worried as before.
Hearing these people discussing the Hundred Leaf Qin Clan, he did not participate in their conversation and walked to the side with a smile.
"Tsk tsk, the world has changed!" On the side, a hoarse voice clicked his tongue and gasped in admiration and kept crying out, "Since when could a martial artist from the human country make it up to a second class assassination bounty? From this situation, it seems that it could even rise to become a first class assassination bounty?"
This guy had a forthright appearance. He kept speaking out as apparently, he felt somewhat in disbelief.
"Ha ha, if I remembered correctly, the prefecture of the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect is located at the Divine Illumination prefecture, right? This Divine Elucidate prefecture is more than a hundred million miles away from the Orderly Mountain prefecture. This assassination bounty had been sent all the way here. It's truly strange. Could it be that the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect could not even deal with a mere martial artist from the human countries?"
"What do you know! It was issued to our Orderly Mountain prefecture because we are on the border of the Tian Xuan Land and the closest to the human countries. Do you think that the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect could not even deal with a human martial artist? Did you head get hit by a door?"
"So if your head hasn't been hit by a door, why don't you tell us the reason why the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect did not make the move themselves?"
"This is called using someone else's knife to kill. If the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect needed to make a move on this trivial matter, what would it say about their name and status at the Xuan Yuan Mound?"
"Humph, a great status, right?"
"Idiot! If the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect did not mean a great status, then who do you say holds a greater status?"
"I say the Heavenly Emperor Eight Gates holds the supreme statis. Despite the Heavenly Luo's strength, can they enter the Heavenly Emperor Eight Gates?"
"For the Heavenly Emperor Eight Gates, the entire Xuan Yuan Mound only has eight of them. Even if the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect could not make into the top eight, they would at least, make it to the top sixteen."
These two argued back and forth. However, Qin Wushuang shivered with cold inwardly as he heard their conversation. Without question, the topic discussed by these two were information relating to Qin Wushuang.
At the Hundred Leaf Qin Clan, Patriarch Qin Bolong's little brother Qin Zhonglong had mentioned that there was a bounty to assassinate Qin Wushuang had been posted to the Freelance Martial Artist Union.
Now, everything was verified. Indeed, on that bulletin board, there was a bounty mission from the highest Freelance Martial Artist Union.
This mission had emphasized that it was a second class assassination bounty and was issued by Heavenly Luo Daoist sect. The reward amount had almost doubled from the fifty thousand gold crystal stones when it was last mentioned by Qin Zhonglong. It had risen to eighty thousand gold crystal stones!
This reward was enough to move many elite freelance martial artists. For your information, a million gold crystal stones had stimulated a Profound Void Martial Stage warrior. Besides them, there were many Transformation and Refined stage warriors.
This way, eighty thousand gold crystal stones was enough to make an elite warrior at the Transformation Void Martial Stage work for it!
"Darn it, it has risen again!" Bao Bao whispered inwardly.
However, Qin Wushuang was emotionless. As long as the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect did not stir up trouble in the human countries, even if they were to issue a million gold crystal stone bounty for his head, he would not have the slightest fear.
Anyways, his current identity was Wu Xinghe. He would conceal his strength and bide his time until he was prepared!
For now, he would take in the anger from the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect and accept their pursuit. One day, he would repay them all of his grievances and suffering. This was Qin Wushuang's principal.
"Everyone speak up, who is this Qin Wushuang? How extraordinary a person would a remote place like the human countries nurture? To the extent that the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect would spend a fortune to kill him?"
"Don't forget, you guys, he might be from the human countries. But this Qin Wushuang's surname is Qin. In our Tian Xuan Land, we must be more vigilant than usual when we see a figure with this surname. They are famous for their swift and fierce nature."
"Ha ha, that's true. Let's say the Hundred Leaf Qin Clan. As soon as the million crystal reward was issued and Senior Chen Sen made a move, everyone thought they were done. But what happened in the end? In fact, it was Chen Sen's team of elite warriors that suffered total annihilation. The Qin Clan have always been a mysterious lot."
"Ah, for thousand of years, no one expect much from the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan. However, they still persist as one of the Eight Gates."
One after another, these people engaged in energetic conversation. Regarding the Qin Clan, the topic was always alluring. In a moment, many freelance martial artists had gathered and started to talk actively with spittle flying everywhere.
To Qin Wushuang's surprise, amidst their conversation, not many of these freelance martial artists gritted their teeth when they mentioned the Qin Clan's name. On the contrary, many of them reveal a trace of respect when they uttered the name of Qin.
"It seems that the Heavenly Qin Clan still has some underlying support from the people in the Xuan Yuan Mound. Only, the powerhouse they had been offended were too great and caused the clan's crisis, making progress with great difficulty..."
While Qin Wushuang was lost in his own thoughts, suddenly, a wave of hasty shouts emerged from the street ahead of them.
