75 Send You to Death
Heavenly Fragrance Brothel was located in the center of the City of Sin.
It was the most prosperous spot of the city, the gathering place of the earth’s veins and human connections from all directions. The cultivators coming and going were endless.
When Lin Wudao arrived on the spiritual boat, what greeted his eyes was an ancient and extremely grand nine-story tower.
In the void was boundless spiritual energy. Cultivating here would definitely yield twice the result with half the effort.
The design was very similar to the Lingyun Pavilion in Tianyuan Ancient City. It must have been the work of the same person.
“Governor, we’ve arrived at the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel.”
“Alright,” Lin Wudao replied calmly. Then, he led Li Zangtian and the rest to disembark the spiritual boat.
When they arrived before the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel’s doors, a stone pillar that reached the sky entered their eyes. On that stone pillar, a person was tightly bound.
It was Chen Chunqiu.
Many cultivators surrounded the stone pillar. They pointed at Chen Chunqiu and chattered with each other.
“Heh, the Demon Subduing Division is really miserable. Zhao Mang and Han Qingshan were just hung on the city tower, and now, the Deputy Lord of the Demon Hunter Hall has been tied up in the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel.”
“I heard that Chen Chunqiu played with the women here but did not pay, so he was detained.”
“Hehe, you actually believe that?”
“As the Deputy Lord of the Demon Subduing Division, how could he not pay? Even if he, Chen Chunqiu, was shameless, would the Demon Subduing Division be? Someone must have set this up on purpose.”
“Say, do you think Governor Lin from the Demon Subduing Division will come to save him?”
“This… It’s hard to say.”
The crowd was chattering with discussions.
Many were gloating over his misfortune.
They did not know whether Chen Chunqiu had paid or not, nor did they want to know. At this moment, they just wanted to watch the show and wait for the Demon Subduing Division’s reaction.
If the Demon Subduing Division remained unmoved, then such a scandal would ruin their reputation and their prestige would be greatly damaged. If the Demon Subduing Division came to redeem Chen Chunqiu, it would also be screwed.
This seemed to be an unsolvable situation. No matter which option Lin Wudao chose, he had no way out.
“Hmph, it seems like they’ve already set up the stage and are just waiting for me to perform.”
Lin Wudao’s eyes were cold.
It was also at this moment that a loud and clear bell sound suddenly rang out from the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel.
Immediately after, a lithe and beautiful woman in a court dress walked out of the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel slowly and came to the door.
Behind her were two elders, one in black and one in white. Their cultivation had already reached the perfection of the Heavenly realm.
“Yuniang is out~”
“I didn’t expect that a mere Chen Chunqiu would attract Yuniang’s attention. What a big face.”
“I’ve heard that the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel has an extraordinary background. There’s a great force behind it…”
“This time, I’m afraid that Lin Wudao won’t dare to come.”
“Whether he comes or not, the Demon Subduing Division will lose face.”
Since they were just watchers of the show, they didn’t mind that the show become livelier.
At this moment, they were all looking forward to Chen Chunqiu’s outcome.
Lin Wudao’s expression was apathetic as he looked at the lady in the court dress.
With God’s Spiritual Eye, he had seen through all the information about Qi Yuniang. She wasn’t from Jiuzhou, and her strength was in the early stage of the Origin Return realm.
In the City of Sin, she could be considered a powerhouse.
However, Lin Wudao did not think much of her.
After a moment of observation, he led his men over.
At the same time, outside the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel, Qi Yuniang was staring at Chen Chunqiu with a frosty expression, her eyes full of scrutiny.
“Deputy Lord Chen, there are only 15 minutes left before the agreed time. If the Demon Subduing Division still hasn’t sent the spiritual stones by then, we will have to follow the rules and have you pay with your life.”
Her indifferent voice resounded in all directions.
Upon hearing this, Chen Chunqiu, who was tied to the stone pillar, turned pale with fright.
“Tower Master Qi, please show mercy. It’s not that I don’t want to pay, it’s just that I don’t know what’s going on at all. I just had fun as usual, how could I possibly have spent ten million spiritual stones? You guys are clearly…”
“Oh? Deputy Lord Chen, do you think that the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel is setting you up?”
Chen Chunqiu was just about to defend himself when Qu Yuniang’s cold voice rang out again.
“Hmph, the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel has always been fair. All expenses are completely based on the principle of autonomy and willingness. We have never forced anything. However, if anyone wants to renege on their debt, then they must follow the rules and pay with their lives. Deputy Lord Chen, you have two options now. You can either pay the 10 million low-grade spiritual stones, or you can pay with your life when the time is up. You’d better pray that someone will save you with money, otherwise…”
“Otherwise, what will Tower Master Qi do?”
Suddenly, a cold voice sounded from outside the crowd.
In an instant, everyone present looked in the direction of the voice at the same time, only to see an extremely tall and sturdy young man with a dignified and cold aura stride to the front of the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel.
“Lin Wudao? Is he really here?” Someone asked in surprise.
“Heh, is he here to redeem that guy? Or…”
“Ten million low-grade spiritual stones is no small amount. Can the Demon Subduing Division afford it?”
“This time, there’s a good show to watch.”
The surrounding people’s spirits were greatly roused.
All of them stared unblinkingly at Lin Wudao, their eyes filled with mockery and gloating.
Similarly, Qu Yuniang’s clear and cold eyes also fell on Lin Wudao.
When her eyes brushed past Li Zangtian and the others behind the other party, her brows furrowed slightly.
She felt a monstrous and murderous aura. It seemed that those people were not to be trifled with.
“Could this be the source of Lin Wudao’s confidence?” She muttered to herself.
Thinking of this, she couldn’t help but shake her head. She didn’t think much of a mere Heavenly realm cultivator at all.
“You must be the new Deputy Governor of the Demon Subduing Division, Lin Wudao, right? Chen Chunqiu, as the Deputy Lord of the Demon Subduing Division, spent ten million low-grade spiritual stones at the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel. I wonder if Governor Lin is going to pay this debt on his behalf or…?”
“Of course. Chen Chunqiu is my subordinate. He was detained because he didn’t have any money, so I’ll naturally pay this debt on his behalf.”
As he spoke, Lin Wudao extended his hand and took out 10 million low-grade spiritual stones, placing them in front of the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel.
Uh… He actually paid?
Seeing this scene, the surrounding crowd was instantly shocked.
In their subconsciousness, Lin Wudao was definitely going to cause a scene. Who had thought that he would be so straightforward?
The debt of ten million spiritual stones was paid off just like that?
Everyone was dumbfounded.
This wasn’t the result they had hoped for.
In fact, not only were the onlookers surprised, but even Qi Yuniang herself was also extremely surprised.
However, there was no reason for her to reject the spiritual stones that were delivered to her door.
With a wave of her jade-like hand, the ten million spiritual stones on the ground were instantly collected.
“Oh, just this?”
“I thought Lin Wudao was a big shot. I didn’t expect him to be a coward.”
“The Demon Subduing Division will always be a decoration for the City of Sin.”
“Heh, as expected. He doesn’t even dare to let out a fart.”
Disdainful sneers came from the crowd.
Lin Wudao was instantly drowned by the overwhelming ridicule and disdain in their eyes.
However, Lin Wudao remained indifferent to all of this.
“I’ve already given you the money, shouldn’t Tower Master Qi let him go?”
“Of course. Men, untie Deputy Lord Chen,” Qu Yuniang said with a smile.
As soon as she said that, the old man in black walked out from behind her. He appeared in front of Chen Chunqiu in a flash and was about to untie the rope.
Just as the black-robed elder made his move, Lin Wudao activated the mighty power of the Origin Stone and temporarily raised his cultivation by a major realm.
With that, he had reached the perfection of the Heavenly realm.
Immediately after, without any hesitation, he used the Spirit-capturing Technique on the black-robed elder.
“Eh, what’s going on? I…”
The moment the Spirit-capturing Technique descended, the black-robed elder clearly felt that something was wrong.
However, before he could react, he lost consciousness.
“Kill Chen Chunqiu,” A cold voice suddenly sounded from his soul.
Upon hearing this, the elder in black did not hesitate. He immediately slammed his palm on Chen Chunqiu’s body. A powerful force surged out and pierced the latter’s chest.
A shrill scream was heard. Under the shocked gazes of countless people, Chen Chunqiu’s life was extinguished.
More than half of his body had been blown up.
“This… What’s going on?”
“What? That person actually killed Chen Chunqiu? ”
“Didn’t Lin Wudao already pay? Why did he still kill? This is not in line with the rules of the Heavenly Fragrance Brothel.”
“What is Tower Master Qi trying to do?”
Everyone was shocked.
They all looked at Qi Yuniang in the distance with shock.
However, at this moment, Qi Yuniang’s eyes were also wide open, and she stood rooted to the ground in disbelief.
She didn’t give the order to kill Chen Chunqiu.
“How dare you, Heavenly Fragrance Brothel! How dare you kill the Deputy Lord of the Demon Subduing Division? Men, tie up Qi Yuniang and the others!”
Just as everyone was in shock, an ice-cold roar suddenly pulled them back to reality.
Then, they saw Li Zangtian and the others beside Lin Wudao charging toward Qu Yuniang with monstrous fiendish energy.
