393 The Network
The master of the Hall of Slaughter truly felt a headache coming on.
A supreme-grade magical tool and a favor from the Immortal Feather Grotto-Heaven were things he wanted to accept no matter what.
Unfortunately, in order to accept this favor, they had to find Zhang Shan and kill him first. However, even after such a long time, they could not find any trace of Zhang Shan.
Mo Ziqi’s patience was running out.
“Li Shaosheng, let me warn you. Don’t think that I am easy to bully. If I find out that you didn’t do your best to find him, forget about a supreme-grade magical tool and other rewards, you will even offend the Immortal Feather Grotto-Heaven and the Mo family!”
This time, Li Shaosheng’s expression became even uglier.
The Hall of Slaughter was the most famous assassin organization in the Feather Kingdom. It was not the strongest. However, it was still considered one of the top organizations. Now that it was being threatened like this, it was naturally not good.
If it was anyone else, Li Shaosheng would have attacked them with his blade.
However, Mo Ziqi was different. In terms of cultivation, Mo Ziqi was weaker than him. However, he came from the Immortal Feather Grotto-Heaven and was a descendant of the sect master. Naturally, he was extraordinary. If he provoked him, it would not be a good thing.
Li Shaosheng took a few deep breaths and said slowly, “Give me a little more time. I will definitely be able to find Zhang Shan within half a year.”
“Half a year? That’s too long! I’ll give you a month’s time, if you can’t find him, the Immortal Feather Grotto-Heaven will support another assassination force to replace your one!” Mo Ziqi snorted coldly and turned to leave, leaving Li Shaosheng with an ugly expression.
This b*stard was just relying on his powerful background to be so rude. If it was a one-on-one fight, a mere early Golden Core Realm cultivator was nothing!
However, Li Shaosheng could only swallow his anger. With a wave of his hand, all the higher-ups of the Hall of Slaughter gathered. They were all Golden Core Realm cultivators.
“Go! Find Zhang Shan! No matter what, you have to cut off his head within a month. Otherwise, even if I die, I will drag you all down with me. Do you understand?”
A cold light bloomed in Li Shaosheng’s eyes, causing everyone’s hearts to tremble. They hurriedly nodded in agreement, and then one by one, they accepted the order and left.
Mo Ziqi did not return to the Immortal Feather Grotto-Heaven directly but went to other places.
He went to the Gate of Seven Kills and the Black Wind Mountain.
Those were two other famous assassin organizations in the Feather Kingdom.
There was also the not-so-famous but powerful assassination force, the Network, that Mo Ziqi visited as well.
The representatives of the Gate of Seven Kills and Black Wind Mountain did not dare say anything. It was not because they were afraid of Mo Ziqi, but they were afraid of the Network!
This was the top assassination force in the Feather Kingdom!
The reputation of the Network was far inferior to the Hall of Slaughter. However, in terms of strength, it far surpassed the Hall of Slaughter. Naturally, the price of offering a bounty to kill someone would be huge.
Mo Ziqi did not want to contact the Network because the price was too high.
It was said that their price was ten times higher than the market price for the heads of people of the same level. It was five times more expensive than what the Hall of Slaughter charged.
It was also because of this that unless it was to assassinate some people with special statuses, even the upper echelons of the various large factions were unwilling to seek out the Network to do things.
At this moment, the representative of the Network, Old Demon Qiu, slowly opened his eyes, and a phantom snake shot out from his eyes.
“Elder Mo, do you agree to the price I mentioned before?”
Mo Ziqi’s expression was ugly, “Master Qiu, isn’t your price a little too high? Your asking price is enough to assassinate a late-stage Golden Core Realm cultivator or a higher-up of a large force!”
At this moment, his expression was obviously not good.
Why did he have to pay ten times the price in order to kill a mere Foundation Establishment Realm cultivator? How was this possible?
At this moment, Mo Ziqi wanted to lower the price as much as possible.
“Hehe, Elder Mo, don’t think we’re fools. You should be very clear about Zhang Shan’s strength. Even your son, a top genius in the Void Core Realm, died in his hands. This is enough to show that this person’s talent is extremely high. Moreover, he must have the support of an ancient sect behind him. No matter how powerful a faction is, they probably wouldn’t dare make a move against the descendants of such supreme sects. It can be said that unless you search outside of the Feather Kingdom, only the Network would dare kill such a prodigy. Therefore, I think the price I’m asking for is very fair. In fact, it’s a little low!”
Old Demon Qiu’s lips curled up like a poisonous snake as he stared at Mo Ziqi.
The latter gritted his teeth for a long time and glanced at the people from the other two sides. However, the representatives from the Gate of Seven Kills and Black Wind Mountain lowered their heads and did not dare make a sound.
Mo Ziqi cursed in his heart but he forced a smile on his face.
“I hope that you can be magnanimous for the sake of the Immortal Feather Grotto-Heaven and the Mo family. After all, it is really difficult for the five sects to take out a supreme-grade magical tool.”
Mo Ziqi did not lack supreme-grade magical tools. However, that did not mean he could squander them. Unless he could enter the intermediate stage of the Golden Core Realm and obtain more power, supreme-grade magical tools were his main support.
Old Demon Qiu pondered for a moment.
He knew that he did not have to help Mo Ziqi. However, he had to be wary of the sect master of the Immortal Feather Grotto-Heaven!
“Alright, three supreme-grade magical tools and fifty top-grade magical tools. In addition, I’ll have the people in the hall calculate the rest of the cost. Don’t worry, it won’t be too outrageous. This is the lowest price. If you still don’t agree, I don’t mind informing the higher-ups and letting them talk to you!”
