Thank you so much for the support!
After turning, Jun Xie exited the shop and walked home. It was not that the Jun Family did not have any carriages. In fact, the Jun Family carriages were quite luxurious. However, Jun Xie had always preferred walking with his own two legs. The sub consciousness from his past life as an assassin could only feel true safety when walking using his own two feet. Regardless of whether it was a car or a boat, travelling through them would cause a feeling to arise, a feeling that his own fate was not within his own hands. This was a feeling that Jun Xie could not overlook, as it would make him feel uncomfortable.
This was Jun Xie’s habit. His own fate must rest within his own hands!
He even sent away the bodyguards that Grandpa Jun arranged for him a long time ago.
Jun Xie was well aware that those bodyguards beside him were only there for show at best. No matter where he went, there would certainly be someone following him secretly. And the one that was following him in secret was the real expert! Even Jun Xie had never seen this person; Jun Xie’s current level of cultivation was insufficient to locate him. However, he had been able to clearly feel that person’s presence since the day Grandpa Jun put him on his tail!
This feeling came from the senses unique to a top assassin. Even though there was no reason for him to believe that was the case, Jun Xie had absolute faith in his judgement!
As of now, Jun Xie found himself becoming highly interested in the person who was secretly tailing him. Even though his current level of strength was far from comparable to that of his past life, his current spiritual sense had already surpassed that of his past life by several times! He had tried many times to get rid of this tail, using his own counter tracking methods. And yet, this person could continue tracking him like an inseparable shadow. Such a capable person was truly rare!
From an external point of view, Jun Xie seemed to be wandering aimlessly. However, his spiritual senses were spread out, coordinating his every actions carefully, tantamount to flowing quicksilver, pervading through every corner. Furthermore, even though Jun Xie’s movement speed was not fast, anyone who was trying to track him would realize that each change in direction and each movement forward or backward that Jun Xie made was one that was completely unexpected. If the one following him was an average individual, they would have lost sight of Jun Xie’s shadow a long time ago.
However, the one following Jun Xie had not been shaken off, not even once!
Truthfully, the one tailing Jun Xie had already cried out bitterly to the Heavens countless times in his heart! When Grandpa Jun requested him to protect his grandson without him noticing, he had agreed in a heartbeat. In his opinion, all he had to do was protect a debauchee who spent most of his time doing nothing. How hard could it be? With his level of experience and skill, he was confident that this Jun Xie would never realize that someone was tailing him even if he were to tail Jun Xie for the rest of his life.
Who could have guessed that after two days, this top-level tracker would end up feeling hammered? The actions of this brat before him were completely beyond common sense. When he believed that Jun Xie was moving to the east, Jun Xie would suddenly change directions. When he tracked him back, thinking that Jun Xie had gone to the west, he would suddenly find that Jun Xie had instead gone south…
This person could be considered an existence close to the pinnacle in the tracking profession. And yet, in merely two days, he had made several mistakes in tracking Jun Xie’s movement directions. If not for the fact that Jun Xie’s level of cultivation was too low, he would have been left in the dust a long time ago! After committing several errors in succession, he became depressed to the point of insanity; several strands of his beard have been plucked out!
There were several occasions where he simply felt the desire to jump out, grab the brat’s collar area and ask: You son of a bitch! Why are you going through the east gate and exiting through the west gate of this establishment and that? Wandering around here and there, just what were you thinking? Could you not behave yourself?
Could it be that this debauchee brat had found me out? Just as he thought about this, he would immediately deny this possibility: Just by observing his debauched demeanour, anyone could tell that this brat has no ability to find out about me! The reason he is acting this way is obviously because he simply has no idea what he himself wants to do!
As he was contemplating, he suddenly realized that Jun Xie had increased his pace and walked into a rouge watercolour shop. He could not help but let out a “pooh” in his heart. As expected of a debauchee, he would even barge into a place meant for women. Unexpectedly, Jun Xie did not come out even after a while. Becoming impatient, he went nearby and stole a glance into the shop only to find that Jun Xie was not in the shop. He could not help but become depressed: It turns out that this brat had left using the back door. How could I be so stupid? How could I not have thought of this?
Like the wind, he sped towards the back door to search for Jun Xie.
After the distance between the man and himself became considerable, Jun Xie finally determined that the aura of the person tracking him had fully dissipated. After which he slowly waltzed out of the rouge watercolour shop. Bowing courteously, he thanked them, then backtracked his way and marched off.
A few of the females within the shop stared at him with wide opened eyes: This handsome looking Young Master seemed rather healthy. Why is it that he would suddenly have a stomach ache after entering this shop? In addition, he also occupied the toilet for so long. We were almost unable to hold it in anymore…
The sky slowly became dark as the sun slowly descended. The evening atmosphere was left to worry by itself as the shadow of the night opened it grim jaws. It awaited the moment when the last vestiges of light has faded so that it may devour the entire world!
Jun Xie walked for a bit before suddenly backtracking and turning into another path. He then turned towards the backdoor of the rouge watercolour shop, and continued using that direction. He chuckled triumphantly in his heart: It seemed that I would be sending him spinning today. In jungle hunting, this senior is the most accomplished in this area. If I could not even defeat a ‘wooden club’ like you, that would really be weird. Little kiddo, you are way too tender to be going up against me…
As Jun Xie expected, after that person went to chase after Jun Xie, he could not find any trace of Jun Xie. He immediately realized that he was duped; he immediately returned to the shop like a gust of wind. He searched high and low in all directions before standing alone before the rouge watercolour shop. Observing the people coming in and out, his face was a mix of green and red. It was as though he was opening a dye shop. His whole body felt powerless!
Dominating the world for decades, his tracking techniques had never failed before. Today however, he had actually lost to a little inexperienced brat. In addition, the brat was an ignorant and incompetent debauchee! This was simply the biggest joke in the whole world! His heart cried out: I have completely lost my face this time!
How shameful! What a completely unexpected situation!
Jun Zhantian, just what kind of grandchild did you raise? How could he be so heretical?
Jun Xie laughed, feeling very pleased. Although he knew that the person following him did not hold any malice against him, he was someone who preferred acting independently. To have someone following him around like a ghost simply left an unspeakable distaste in him. In short, it simply made him feel uncomfortable! Now that he had gotten rid of the tail, he finally felt relaxed.
Suddenly, Jun Xie’s body, which was walking became stiff for a moment. He then relaxed his body, his shoulder muscles quivered once and a flying dagger slipped down onto the palm of his hand.
A few chilling aura which brought with it a cold feeling of darkness converged from various directions. Their target was none other than the street that Jun Xie was currently travelling on.
This aura was one he had encountered before in his past life, one he was very familiar with!
Seriously? I had just gotten rid of the one sent to protect me, only to end up walking into an assassination attempt right after? If I really end up getting killed here, won’t this become a joke? Did I commit a self-defeating move? Jun Xie laughed bitterly in his heart. However, an undeniable feeling of excitement, which had been long absent, rose from the depths of his heart: Secretly bringing the scent of blood – finally, I will finally be able to see my fellow peers in this world. I hope that you do not make me… disappointed!
The sound of neat footsteps was heard from the front as a group of people approached. In the middle of these people was a sedan chair. The sedan chair was coloured in a clear yellow with pearls hanging down from the sides. Hanging below the string of pearls was a golden bell. The bell swayed lightly, issuing a clear ringing sound. Listening to the ringing sound would make anyone feel pleased.
This was the imperial sedan chair of the Royal Court’s Princess Ling Meng!
Could it be that the one that these people wanted to kill is not me? The target is actually Princess Ling Meng?
Jun Xie contemplated through it within his heart and felt that there was a high possibility of this being the case. For him to come into this street was simply something done at the spur of the moment. If these assassins had wanted to kill him, there were places that were far more suitable back then. There was no reason for the assassins to follow him all the way until now before taking action!
However, to assassinate Princess Ling Meng in the open when she was still so near the Imperial Palace, just what kind of people would have such a high level of courage?
