Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Amidst all that panic, the spiritual fox sped through the crowd. The entire parade grounds was in chaos. Just as the fox was about to burst out of the gathering, a towering figure blocked its path. Before the spiritual fox could react, that person raised a leg and kicked it!
With a pained cry, the fox landed heavily among the crowd. Ji Fengyan arrived at that moment and gazed down at the groaning spiritual fox. She looked up in wonder at the person who had blocked the fox’s escape route.
Qin Muyao stood coldly before everyone. Amidst all that chaos, his actions had cut off the spiritual fox’s only path of escape.
“Over to you.” Qin Muyao looked blandly at Ji Fengyan. With that, he disappeared into the crowd.
Ji Fengyan gave a faint smile as she looked down at the writhing spiritual fox.
Qin Muyao’s kick was crude and simple, but had broken the fox’s spine. It could not escape even if it wanted to.
“Why are you not fleeing anymore?” Ji Fengyan grinned at the fallen spiritual fox.
The fox stared at Ji Fengyan with poisonous slanted eyes. It spat out a wad of black-colored blood. “Despicable humans.”
Ji Fengyan narrowed her eyes and stomped on the fox’s long black tail.
“Despicable? You dare to point the finger at us? Who was the one who bewitched that dumb Zhou Bugui? Who ate the flesh of those eight youths? Humans are far behind you demons in terms of vileness.”
“Ha? I bewitched that idiot, so what? His heart was already filled with darkness—if not I would not have been able to latch onto his body so easily. So pathetic… he obviously knew I meant harm to you all but was still willing to host me.” The spiritual fox sneered. “He would be full of regret every time I returned from eating someone. But after I assured him that this will lead to the demise of his most-hated person – he obediently followed orders.”
“You humans are truly wretched; willing to collude with the enemy for your personal gains.”
The spiritual fox took a breath and surveyed the surrounding congregation with disdain.
The institute director and several tutors rushed over and looked at the fallen spiritual fox. Its mocking words felt like knives stabbing at their hearts. They looked increasingly grim.
“Don’t waste your breath with this beast. It killed so many people, we must not let it off easily,” a tutor from the school of gold cultivators said vehemently.
The spiritual fox showed no fear. “Hahaha, I killed people? They deserved it! You humans think you are so noble and virtuous – but when did you ever spare a thought for the other races? Your so-called institute is a joke. How many of our own have you imprisoned to become your training tools? Every year, how many demons were killed for the sake of your training exercises? I only ate eight of your students and you already can’t accept it? Well then, who is going to account for the countless demon deaths!”
The fox’s words left everyone thunderstruck!
The capital institute did make use of demons to train its students—the fox’s words did hold some truth.
The crowd started looking rather uncomfortable.
“Nothing to say? All this was because of your own heartlessness… ah!!”
