I Really Am Not The Lord of Demon - Chapter 75
It was almost dawn.
In the outer sea of Songjiang Mansion, a yacht was slowly sailing in the ocean before dawn. A rich young master had just finished a bottle of Maotai wine and was so drunk that he almost forgot about himself. He was lying on a tender and plump thigh, blowing the sea breeze. He felt that life was dull and boring.
“I want some excitement…”
“But I have already tried everything…”
“Feeding horses, chopping firewood, traveling around the world. I had tried and lost interest in those before I was even twenty years old…”
“Exotic delicacies, young model stars. Just thinking about it makes me sick…”
“Sigh…” he looked up at the sky and asked, “Why can’t I have more excitement in my life?”
Suddenly, he was stunned.
Because, from the corner of his eyes, he caught a glimpse of a strong-built figure stepping on the waves of the sea and slowly moving forward.
He immediately stood up and excitedly looked in the direction of that figure.
However, there was nothing there.
The sea was calm and quiet.
“Young Master Quan…” the model wrapped her tender arms around him and sweetly acted coquettishly, “Come and play with me…”
The young master no longer had the slightest intention of playing around.
He turned around and shouted to the person driving the boat, “Chen! Chen!”
“Aye!” The person driving the boat immediately replied, “What are your orders, young master?”
“I want to become a monk!” The rich young master said loud, “quickly arrange it for me!”
If he was not hallucinating just now, then the figure walking on the waves on the sea must be a monk.
It made the rich young master inexplicably excited as if he had found a new world.
Shaolin Temple’s Martial Arts, Wutai Mountain’s Divine Arts…
All kinds of things that he had seen on television appeared in his mind.
“There is another side of this world that I don’t know about!”
He decided that he must go and acknowledge a master and learn the divine arts!
“Alright!” The person driving the boat agreed without even thinking. Then, he asked, “Young Master, do you want to go to Putuo Temple or Lingyin Temple?”
“Our chairman has shares in both of these temples!”
“They would certainly be able to arrange the position of a chief monk for you!”
The rich young master’s face immediately froze.
Shares… Chief Monk…
He sighed and turned around to hug the young model.
“I must have been dazzled just now…” he said, “this world is still so boring and dull…”
“Sigh…” tears of disappointment shed from the corners of his eyes.
… … ..
The strong-built monk slowly paced on the waves.
He held a copper bowl in his left hand, a monk’s staff in his right hand, and a red robe draped over his body.
He looked solemn and very merciful.
He seemed to walk extremely slow.
But in fact, with each step he took, he was hundreds or even thousands of steps away.
Therefore, it only took him a few hours to appear on the east coast of Kunlun Province.
He stood in the surging waves of the ocean and put his palms together. “Amitabha. Dear patrons, this monk has managed to find you!”
The sun still hadn’t risen on the east coast of Kunlun Province at that moment.
The local time was still five o’clock in the morning.
… … ..
Ling Pingan opened his eyes.
It was already daytime outside.
He rubbed his aching temples. He didn’t go to bed until two o’clock last night because he was writing his novel.
But, he couldn’t fall asleep no matter how hard he lay on the bed. He was not able to sleep until about three or four o’clock.
Naturally, he got up late.
But there wasn’t much business anyway.
So, he shrugged and walked to the bathroom. After a simple wash up, he walked down the stairs.
The Kitten, Bastet, who had been waiting for him at the stairs, jumped onto his shoulder and rubbed on him affectionately.
“Deary, are you hungry?” Ling Pingan carried her down and poured some cat food into her plate.
Then he opened the door of the bookshop.
It was already past ten in the morning.
There were more pedestrians on the road, and the alley had entered the busiest time of the day.
He walked to the next door and ordered two baskets of steamed dumplings and a bowl of tofu pudding as usual.
Then, he took his breakfast and walked back to the bookstore.
At the same time, he felt relieved.
“Good…” he thought, “No one knows about what happened yesterday evening…”
“It seems that my worry is unnecessary!”
With this thought, he smiled happily.
No one would want to be labeled as a murderer in the eyes of others.
Even if the murder was done on behalf of self-defense.
Because it would attract the attention of others, and it would also make people afraid.
People who had killed before and people who had never killed before were treated differently in society.
The former ones would make people fear and afraid of them, while the latter would not.
Ling Pingan was just a mere human, and he still wanted to live a life.
He did not want to have a label of he had killed someone.
But he did not know that from the moment he walked out of the door, there was constantly a camera spying on him.
… … … ..
Situ He looked at the image on the surveillance screen.
The Ancient Diablo seemed to have gotten up much later than usual today.
But he still walked along the same track as before. After he went out, he went to the breakfast shop next door and bought two baskets of steamed dumplings and a bowl of tofu pudding.
Then, he took them and went back.
The moment he entered the door, the camera caught his expression.
Situ He looked at the frozen scene and felt a little creepy.
Because, just a few hours ago.
At about four o’clock in the morning, local time in the Land of Qin, the headquarters of the Order of the Temple located in the depths of a forest in the Kingdom of Fran was destroyed by someone.
Other than the founder of the Order of the Temple, the Headless Duke Hill, the other twelve earls, more than thirty Barons, and hundreds of servants were all killed.
That was the most drastic change that happened in the Dark World of the Land of Qin in the past ten years.
“So..” Situ He thought, “it was him who attacked last night?!”
“This is terrifying!”
“He killed the entire Order of the Temple with one strike across tens of thousands of miles of ocean…”
“It’s said that in the Order of the Temple’s lair, all the monsters and supernatural beings were wiped out, apart from mortals!”
However, this left behind a terrifying disaster.
Headless Duke Hill.
One of the seven greatest of the Dark World of the land of Qin.
Although his ranking was the lowest among them.
And was far inferior to the three super experts who stood at the top greatest of the land of Qin.
He had the strength of at least of a lieutenant general of the Blackguards!
Fighting against such a strong man is tough unless he could be surrounded in a desperate situation where he could not escape.
Otherwise, once he managed to escape.
The consequences would be endless!
Two hundred years ago, why did the great legacy of the emperor of the land of Qin ended in failure?
Was it because his ability was not strong enough?
Was it because his imperial guards were not brave enough?
Was it because he did not receive enough help?
Neither was it!
The land of Qin and the foreign species that opposed him formed the Holy Alliance and fought to the death against him.
If they could not win in a direct battle, the most powerful foreign species in the Holy Alliance broke up into small groups and attack the civilians of his country.
They would create one shocking murder after another.
The emperor was tired of running and could only do nothing in the end.
And when he surrendered.
All attacks and hostility immediately ended.
Because now, it was his enemy’s turn to worry.
An expert who had given up his ambitions and ideals. The moment he becomes shameless ran to attack civilians.
There would be no place that was safe in the Holy Alliance.
No one could always be on guard against an expert who was an army!
It was only until the commander-in-chief of the Blackguard appeared out of nowhere that this terrifying balance was broken.
Hence, the Holy Alliance was disbanded.
However, the commander-in-chief was far away in the Beizhou.
The Federal’s Overseas Base had its door opened.
A furious Duke, an expert who had at least the strength of a lieutenant general of the Blackguards.
He was secretly coveting, spying, and planning to attack one of the overseas bases.
Just thinking about this matter made Situ He’s throat dry.
Because he knew very well that in the past few decades, the foreign species of the land of Qin had not been idle.
They had come up with all kinds of concealment techniques and learned all kinds of escape methods.
Each one of them became even more slippery than a loach.
No more fool act as in the past, engaging in a one-on-one or one-on-many with the commander-in-chief.
If they could not win, they would flee.
Even the commander-in-chief would have a hard time catching a duke who was determined to escape!
At this moment, a cry came from Situ He’s earpiece. “Target found!”
“In the Malin Kingdom of East Kunlun State!”
He immediately shouted to someone, “change the channel immediately!”
“Change the surveillance footage to the footage of Malin Kingdom!”
“Connect to the psionic alert station at the Malin Naval Base!”
