Everyone in that inn was speechless for a moment.
Everyone stared blankly at the thin and weak young man in a long robe in front of them as if they did not react to what he said.
The bald man frowned and said coldly, “Little brother, are you not aware of the current situation?”
The surrounding men all took another step towards Lin Qi.
Lin Qi slowly raised his head and looked around. He suddenly realized something upon looking at the people who were approaching him.
“Aiya, it seems that I didn’t understand the situation.”
The bald man revealed a trace of a smile upon hearing that.
It was meaningless to kill such a brat who was still immature. They would get it done with just a scare.
However, what Lin Qi spoke net made the smile on his face instantly freeze.
“I forgot to count them in.”
“You’re worth 500 taels. Let’s count each of them as 100 taels.”
“I see that you have more than ten people here. Let’s make it a total of ten people.”
“1500 taels, and I’ll pretend that I’ve been here before?”
“How about we make this trade a successful one by being friendly?”
Make the trade a successful one by being friendly?
The expressions of the bald man and the other strong-built men were gloomy.
Was he a gangster inn or them?
Was he asking for 1,500 taels of silver?
The bald man was furious.
Even a fool could see that this kid didn’t take them seriously at all.
“We have 12 people here, and you are only alone.”
“And a useless umbrella.”
“Kid, I, Liu Laosan, am a reasonable person.”
“Outsiders will say that we are bullying you if they see us beating you up.”
“Brothers, close the door!”
The two strong men near the door went forward and closed the wooden door with the spider web on it.
The light in the room immediately dimmed.
The bald man gently pulled out the short knife at his waist and said with a sinister smile, “We’ll talk in open space and beat up others in the dark.”
“This is what I call fun!”
The short knife in his hand quickly stabbed Lin Qi’s face after he finished his words.
However, Lin Qi only smiled slightly. His right hand grabbed the Chaos Yuan of Heaven and Earth Umbrella on the table and gently lifted it.
The short knife was pushed away by the paper umbrella easily.
However, the bald man’s forward momentum could not be stopped. Although the knife was pushed away, he still bumped into the tip of the umbrella.
The bald man immediately took two steps back and coughed non-stop with the tip of the umbrella poking his throat.
Meanwhile, Lin Qi still had a faint smile on his face as he looked at the bald man and said, “I thought that we could make friends, but it seems that you don’t want to.”
He picked up the teacup on the table after that and drank the tea in the cup in one gulp.
The bald man coughed a few times before he barely managed to catch his breath.
He touched his throat with lingering fear. He found a trace of blood.
A brat had sneaked attacked him.
A wave of anger ignited in his heart at once.
He slammed his left hand hard on the table and roared, “You’re f* cking courting death!”
Lin Qi’s swept his umbrella once again and accurately hit the bald man’s right hand before he could finish his words.
Bald man’s right hand felt the pain and the short knife in his hand flew out.
Meanwhile, Lin Qi stretched out his left hand and accurately caught the short knife. He suddenly smashed it on the table after making a slash in the air.
The short knife pierced through the bald man’s left hand that was hitting the table without hesitation.
“Ah! ! !”
A heart-wrenching scream came out of the bald man’s mouth. It sounded creepy.
The bald man’s left hand was nailed to the table. He lost his balance, and he fell to the ground.
However, he shouted.
“Why the f* ck are you still standing there for? Quickly attack him! Kill him!”
The surrounding strong-built men finally reacted. They all pulled out their weapons and pounced on Lin Qi.
However, Lin Qi lightly jumped onto the table.
His right foot forcefully stepped on the hilt of the short knife.
The short knife directly passed through the wooden table and tightly pressed onto the bald man’s left hand in a split second.
The painful cry from the bald man’s mouth sounded once again.
Although the strong-built men were shocked, they were, after all, people who spent their days licking blood from the edge of the knife.
They had the ruthless expressions on their face again and pounced on Lin Qi.
Meanwhile, Lin Qi slowly opened the paper umbrella in his hand, and a stream of air suddenly appeared around him.
Any disciple of the Baiyun Sect would cry out in surprise if they saw that scene.
That was because this move was a cultivation technique that many disciples knew.
The Flowing Cloud Movement Technique!
However, Lin Qi’s method of using it was different from the other disciples.
The other disciples relied on the airflow generated by the Flowing Cloud Movement Technique to increase their speed and agility. They used the airflow to increase their perceptive abilities at the same time.
Lin Qi, on the other hand, performed the Flowing Cloud Movement Technique, but he stood on the table without moving.
However, the airflow around Lin Qi suddenly became stronger the next second.
It turned from airflow to a storm in a split second!
The huge airflow overturned the roof, and the surrounding walls were blown away by the huge storm.
The strong men in the gangster inn were also blown away.
A huge tornado with Lin Qi as the eye of the storm appeared in that wasteland, blotting out the sky and the sun!
The tornado gradually stopped a moment later.
There was only a table and two people left on this wasteland.
Lin Qi slowly raised his right foot and looked at the bald man, who was scared out of his wits under the table.
Perhaps, even the bald man would have been taken away by the wind if he hadn’t stepped on the knife with his foot and nailed the bald man’s hand to the table.
The bald man begged for mercy in panic upon looking at the faint smile on Lin Qi’s face.
“I… am too ignorant to not know you… I didn’t know what you are capable of!
“I beg you to spare my life. Let’s… make money out of harmony, make money out of harmony!”
Hearing this, the smile on Lin Qi’s face gradually disappeared. He looked at the bald man coldly and said,
“I won’t wait anymore. Look at how poor you are. I bet you can’t even take out 1,500 taels.”
A cloud of blood mist sprayed into the air with a gentle wave of the paper umbrella.
The bald man’s body had been dismembered before he could finish what he wanted to say.
He lightly jumped off the table and slowly walked to the side of the bald man.
Lin Qi bent down, picked up an ear, and walked towards the small town with the head in his hand.
In the Sky-Reach Peak.
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao and You Yilin could not do anything.
Almost everyone believed Guan Zhen’s words!
Firstly, Guan Zhen usually stayed in Yanhui Peak and never asked about the affairs of the Baiyun Sect.
Secondly, Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao had just admitted that he had caused trouble in Yanhui Peak.
Moreover, Guan Zhen’s words were not unreasonable.
It did look like Lin Qi had experienced a fight if his house was really in a mess.
It was probably impossible for anyone other than Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao to fight silently in Yanhui Peak and take someone away by force.
It was indeed possible that Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao and You Yilin had joined hands to do this from the situation at the moment!
Just as Guan Zhen was about to continue interrogating Lin Qi for his whereabouts…
A loud sound came from the horizon.
Everyone subconsciously turned their heads to look.
Suddenly, a huge tornado rose from the ground and shot into the sky!
A bold idea appeared in You Yilin’s mind in an instant.
“Could it be that the expert who created this storm has kidnapped Lin Qi?”
Guan Zhen and Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao were stunned when they heard that.
The two of them took out their immortal swords at the same time and flew toward the storm on their flying swords.
They had to save Lin Qi first!
