The man named Shitou San suddenly became angry and punched at the person who was ridiculing him. The thing he hated the most was other people putting him in an awkward position when he was talking.
That person was unable to react in time and was punched right in the middle of his face. Immediately afterward, he cried madly and began to fight back. A few tables nearby were affected and this conflict immediately escalated.
“These fellows are out of luck. This Bounty Hunter Bar isn’t a place where they can create a disturbance.” A man wearing a silk robe took pleasure in other people’s misfortune and he said to his companion with a smile.
“Just a few small outlaws… If some noble young masters were the ones causing a disturbance, would this bar dare to intervene??” His companion objected.
“I say, brother, you just came here so you didn’t get the news. The background of this Bounty Hunter Guild is extremely strong. Last time, when I was drinking wine in the Bounty Hunter Bar in Soaring Dragon City, I saw a person with several bodyguards causing a disturbance. Do you know who that person was? That was a young master from the branch family of the imperial clan. In the end, the people of the Bounty Hunter Guild broke his legs and threw him out of the bar like a dog. What do you mean they wouldn’t dare to intervene?” This man laughed.
“Since you are a new rookie, you can learn a bit more. Otherwise, you won’t know how you died.”
As if to prove that the words of this man were correct, several figures suddenly appeared inside the bar. They knocked those people who were causing a disturbance to the ground.
“Throw them out. How dare they create a disturbance in the Bounty Hunter Guild? Did they eat the heart of a bear and a leopard’s gall?” A person who looked like the person-in-charge coldly instructed.
“Wait a moment.” At that moment, Long Yi stood up. He still wanted to hear more about what the man was saying.
That person in charge looked over with a thunderous expression. However, the moment he caught sight of Long Yi, his expression changed. Just as he was about to greet Long Yi, he noticed that he was unable to move his body in the slightest. The person in charge and other higher level personnel of all the Bounty Hunter Guild knew that Long Yi was the true boss behind the Bounty Hunter Guild.
“Give me some face and let them stay. I am very interested in the words of this brother.” Long Yi said with a smile as he retracted his spirit power which was binding this person.
“Of course. Since this is the intention of this honored guest, there is no reason to refuse.” The person in charge respectfully said. He instructed some people to replace everything in the bar before leaving.
Everyone in the bar was surprised as they guessed the identity of these two people in their heart. When they saw Yin Jian who was standing beside Long Yi, they seemed like they understood something.
Yin Jian was a well-known figure in Light City. Almost everyone knew that he was the only son of the city lord, and the city lord Yin Dang, was the vassal of the Ximen Clan. Of course, all of them knew that the Ximen Clan was the foremost prominent family in the Violent Dragon Empire. Many people had long guessed that the Ximen Clan was the one supporting the Bounty Hunter Guild from behind. It seemed like a reasonable guess.
These alcoholics were so shocked at this moment that their entire body was drenched with cold sweat. They thanked Long Yi profusely for his help. They knew that it was their fault for causing a disturbance in the Bounty Hunter Guild as they were out of their mind for a moment.
“This brother Shi, you just said that you saw a dragon. I wonder if that is true?” Long Yi asked Shitou San.
Originally, the attention of this entire bar was already attracted to this side. When they heard Long Yi’s question, everyone became interested. They all moved around them in order to listen to the conversation.
“This young master, I, Shitou San dare to guarantee this with my life. This matter is absolutely not speaking nonsense.” Shitou San patted his chest and said. Looking at the crowd around him, he was somewhat proud of himself in his heart. He added, “I just came back from the Proud Moon Empire yesterday. Because I was in a hurry, I took the mountain path. Who would have thought that I would have diarrhea because of some bad food. Since it was already getting dark, I couldn’t use the mountain path. Late in the night, I had a stomach ache and I squatted in the midst of thick bushes to relieve myself. At that time, a strong wind blew past me and it nearly sent my flying.”
“I looked up and saw one black and one golden dragon. They were over 100 meters long and they were fighting against each other. That momentum was simply devastating. Two mountains were crushed in an instant. In that battle, both dragons suffered. Among them, the black dragon fell on that mountain where I was on, creating a huge crater and its dragon tail slammed tens of meters away from me. Fortunately, they didn’t fight again. If they did, I wouldn’t be sitting here drinking wine with all of you.”
After Shitou San finished speaking, all of them began to make remarks in succession. There were some who believed him. Of course, there were also people who expressed their doubts.
“I just arrived here today from the Proud Moon Empire. I also took that path in order to arrive at Light City. There are indeed two collapsed mountains there.” All of a sudden, someone interrupted them.
“Putting it that way, it should be real. Other than forbidden magic spells, only the legendary Dragon Race have such tyrannical strength. However… With the appearance of the Dragon Race in the Blue Waves Continent, is there some kind of scheme?” Another person added.
“If that is true, things are going to be terrible. Even a Master Archmage finds it very hard to deal with an adult dragon by himself. Not to mention the fact that there are only five Master Archmages in the Blue Waves Continent.” All kinds of discussion appeared inside the bar and the atmosphere heated up.
“That is still not the worst part. The worst part is, our Blue Waves Continent has an internal strife. If we are not united, how can we resist the invasion of the Dragon race?” An old man wearing a magic robe sighed.
“Looking at the current situation, the Ximen Clan, directly or indirectly, controls both the Nalan Empire and Proud Moon Empire. For the unification of the continent, the Ximen Clan is the best choice. Since that is the case, it would be better to be unified earlier.” Someone among the crowd said.
“Right, right, the imperial Long Clan has already declined. How can they contend with the Ximen Clan?” Another one in the crowd added.
For a period of time, everyone who was in the Bounty Hunter Inn expressed their views. Among the crowd, there were some people who were deliberately guiding the public opinion, infinitely exaggerating the Ximen Clan. It seemed as though the Skynet intelligence agents were truly capable.
Long Yi never would have thought that the topic on dragons would lead to such a heated discussion. Now, under the imaginary premise of the Dragon Race attacking the Blue Waves Continent, the Ximen Clan would have an excuse to unify the Blue Waves Continent with the support of the common people. As long as intelligence agents secretly made this matter blow out of proportion, it would spread from one to ten and from ten to a hundred. The matter would take root in the hearts of people. Thus, when the Ximen Clan ascended to the Dragon Throne, they would not provoke many public censures.
Long Yi and Yin Jian appeared pleased as they left the bar. At that moment, the atmosphere in the bar was heated as everyone was discussing about Ximen Clan.
“Young Master, are those people arranged by you?” Yin Jian asked.
“Of course not… This is how we idly poke a stick into the mud and it grows into a tree to shade you. I never thought that the results will be so good… It seems as though the various branches of Skynet should follow this example.” Long Yi shook his head and said with a smile. Although his expression was somewhat calm, his eyes were shining.
“Young Master, did you just think of some kind of good idea again?” Nowadays, Yin Jian’s observation abilities were rising by the day. Just by looking at the current expression of Long Yi, he guessed that Long Yi seemed to have thought of some good plans.
“Yes… This Young Master will make use of this rumor of the Dragon Race attacking the Blue Waves Continent… Heh heh.” Long Yi smirked.
“How are you going to make use of this rumor?” Yin Jian curiously asked.
“You will know in the future. Now, I am returning to the Phoenix Inn. You should also return to the city lord residence and help your father investigate various military officers stationed in Light City. In particular, a number of high-ranking general officers and guards who are guarding the city gate. We cannot lose Light City, you have to properly handle this matter.” Long Yi said to Yin Jian.
“Yes, Young Master. Yin Jian assures you that I will accomplish this task successfully.” Yin Jian replied respectfully before returning to the city lord residence.
Long Yi returned to the Phoenix Inn. When he was passing through a long corridor, the blood-skull mark on his left palm slightly vibrated. He immediately stopped and turned to look at the luxury suite on his right-hand side.
Long Yi looked all around and when he saw that there was no one around him, he extended his hand and gently touched the door. Immediately after that, a burst of magic fluctuation came from inside the door. Long Yi thought about the bad luck he had. He had not expected that the speed of activation of this alarm barrier would be so quick.
“Who’s there?” A crisp and melodious voice came from inside.
“Hello, respected guest, I am a waiter of the Phoenix Inn. I want to ask if you need someone to send over dinner.” The reaction of Long Yi quick. He immediately pretended to be a waiter.
“Oh, we don’t need anything, please leave.” A female voice resounded.
“Okay, if you need something, please feel free to let us know. Our Phoenix Inn will serve you wholeheartedly. I hope your stay here will be pleasant. Goodbye.” Long Yi had been staying in Phoenix Inns throughout his journey. As such, he clearly knew the way they spoke to guests.
Creak, the door of the neighboring room opened. Feng Ling poked her head out and looked at Long Yi with a smile which didn’t seem like a smile.
Long Yi awkwardly touched his nose and entered the room.
“My husband, when did you change your profession to a Phoenix Inn’s waiter? Did you take a fancy to some other girl?” Feng Ling smiled as she pinched Long Yi.
“Nonsense! Am I, your husband, that kind of person?” Long Yi opened his eyes wide and gently pinched Feng Ling’s pert butt.
“So hateful! My husband is that kind of person…” Feng Ling said in displeasure.
“Heh heh, since you say I am that kind of person, now, I’ll deal with you… Where can you run off to?” Long Yi picked up Feng Ling with a strange smile on his face. He tossed her onto the soft sofa in the hall. Like a ferocious tiger, he pounced on her. The two of them played on the sofa which created a lot of noise. Needless to say, spring scenery was quickly present.
“Okay, my husband, I surrender. Younger sister Liuli is in the room…” The beautiful face of Feng Ling had turned bright red. Her beautiful eyes were watery and a large expanse of her white skin was revealed. Long Yi was the cause of everything… he had mischievously pulled at her clothes which revealed a large part of her body.
“Is that so? That’s just perfect. Tonight, the two of you should not think of running away.” Long Yi grabbed the plump ** of Feng Ling and gently kneaded it with a bad smile on his face.
“No! We are going to have dinner soon… Wait some time… Wait some time and you can do whatever you want…” Feng Ling’s passion was also aroused but this was not the right time.
“Okay. You were the one who said it…” Long Yi’s heart swayed and he nibbled on Feng Ling’s earlobe. He had a cheeky smile on his face as he teased her.
