Chapter 319: Uncle, Are You An Assassin
Xu Xiaoshou ended the call on the jade communication device.
Since he was alone, he did not need to joke around anymore.
As soon as it was quiet, his expression turned serious.
No matter how much Xin Gugu tried to reassure him, he could not relax as long he was alone in the room.
‘Is Xin Gugu reliable
Xu Xiaoshou opened the windows.
The sun had started to set, so the sky had turned yellow.
He thought of the stranger who wanted to take his life.
The pressure he was feeling had become increasingly suffocating.
It was as if he could collapse in the next second.
This feeling had lasted five days and was getting more intense.
Xu Xiaoshou knew that this could not continue any longer.
Even if the assassin could wait, he could not.
The longer this dragged on, the more the assassin would find out about him.
For Xu Xiaoshou, there was bound to be a day when his last line of psychological defense would be broken.
‘Today is the day to settle him!
Xu Xiaoshou bit hard on his teeth with determination.
He pushed the door open and walked straight out.
Mu Zixi was at the doorstep.
She had raised her hand, hesitating whether to knock.
Xu Xiaoshous nervousness had diminished a little.
“Do you have something to tell me”
Mu Zixi hesitated for a while and asked, “Are, are you, going out”
“For a stroll”
The young lady twirled her ponytails and lifted her head with her gaze shifting.
“Dont you find it boring to always be stuck in the room”
Xu Xiaoshou was stunned for a moment.
He had not thought of that before.
He might be having a lot of fun by himself, but this young lady might not be.
It was already considered good enough if she could alchemize for a whole day.
Asking her to do so for five days was too harsh for this active and bubbly girl.
“Now is not a good time.”
Nevertheless, he still shook his head and said, “I have a serious matter to settle.
I have to head out for a while.”
Mu Zixis eyes lit up.
“I want to go with you.
You can settle your matter.
I will just watch from the side and cheer you on!”
Xu Xiaoshou thought,You really should not take part in this matter.
It can only be settled by me alone.
Whether he could make it back alive was still an unanswered question.
Touching the piece of black rock he was wearing, Xu Xiaoshou hardened his resolve and rejected her.
The young lady wanted to continue speaking, but Xu Xiaoshou had already left her behind, causing her to stomp the ground in anger.
Cursed, Passive Points 1, 1…
Stalked, Passive Points 1.
Xu Xiaoshou sighed.
He looked back and shoved the sneaky young lady back into the room.
Scolding her now might cause her to have the opposite reaction.
Hence, Xu Xiaoshou gently said, “Be a good girl and wait for me to come back into the room.
I will take you out to play tomorrow.”
Initially, Mu Zixi wanted to resist.
Once she heard such a gentle tone, she was stunned.
Was this person still Xu Xiaoshou
She glanced at the big palm on her forehead and was speechless.
Xu Xiaoshou took advantage of this lack of reaction by his junior sister and moved away.
Mu Zixi was speechless.
‘Its so irritating! I got cheated again!
‘How could Xu Xiaoshou be so gentle
“This senior brother is a tyrant!
She clenched her fists tightly as her eyes widened.
Mu Zixi laid on the big bed and bounced on it with her face looking like she had been wronged.
I dont want this!”
In the evening…
“Selling biscuits… One for one shattered spirit crystal.
Two for two shattered crystals…”
“Passersby, come have a look at newly sown spiritual ice silk clothes! Theyre definitely clean, pristine, and high quality!”
“Elixirs! Elixirs! Red Gold Pill! Known as a second life for Spiritual Cultivators, its usually priced at 99 but is now only 59! As long as you have the spirit crystals, it is yours for the taking!”
On the street, such shouting and merchandise promotion were heard everywhere.
The world of ordinary people and that of Spiritual Cultivators had perfectly integrated in Tiansang City.
Even if the sky was turning dark, the bustling city showed no signs of fatigue.
Everyone was still motivated and working hard for the sake of earning their livelihoods to make ends meet.
Xu Xiaoshou squeezed through the crowd alone.
All the bustle belonged to the other people.
In his current world, it had been solemn and grave as soon as he stepped out of that door.
Almost immediately after he stepped out of the inn, the Watched notification did not move anymore.
Different from the other notifications, which eventually got drowned out, once Xu Xiaoshou saw that one notification, he knew that that Watched would not disappear like the rest.
Instead, it was continually being executed.
‘He is watching me!
Xu Xiaoshou felt his scalp tingle.
As he looked at the crowd around him, he felt some sense of relief.
Sovereigns could not attack without reason.
That was a mainland rule.
This was also the center of Tiansang City with lots of people walking by.
The assassin would not risk doing anything there.
If he did, the guards or highly skilled cultivators from Tiansang City were enough to stop him.
Even so, Xu Xiaoshou was still feeling a lack of confidence.
‘Ten minutes… There are still 10 minutes before Xin Gugu arrives.
I was too rushed.
I should have stayed inside for a while longer.
As he was thinking, Xu Xiaoshou walked through the crowd.
At this point, he still did not dare to walk toward a place with fewer people.
To hide this fear, he purposely chose a target destination to walk toward.
It was the Pill Pagoda.
A 10-minute walk was enough for him to reach the Pill Pagoda.
‘Once Xin Gugu arrives, I can…
A deep sound could be heard.
It was followed by the sound of a figure hitting the ground.
The exclamations from the people around woke Xu Xiaoshou up from his thoughts.
He raised his head.
Not far away on the floor was a sloppy-looking man with long hair and a dirty body.
He was dragging a big sack behind him, causing him to look like a trash collector.
At this time, he was humming and lying on the ground while holding his chest.
Xu Xiaoshou had an awkward expression.
Had he been too deep in thought and bumped into someone
He was immediately apologetic and wanted to help the man up, but his hands suddenly stopped.
“Are you the assassin”
His eyes suddenly looked cold as he picked grew alert and his body went cold.
“No, no, Im not an assassin!”
Xu Xiaoshou had been paying attention to the notification board.
If this was the assassin, there should have been a notification of Ambushed appearing.
This was merely a passerby who he had bumped into when he was nervously in deep thought.
“I am sorry.”
Xu Xiaoshou helped the man up, not worrying about all the filth.
He pulled the sack on the ground over and wanted to pass it back to the man.
He heard the sound of metal clashing.
Xu Xiaoshou was stunned.
It sounded like scrap metal, which suited this uncles identity.
With Xu Xiaoshous perception, he thought it sounded more like a bunch of weapons.
Xu Xiaoshou decided to be direct again.
“Sir, are you an assassin”
