Barging into a Magic World after Returning from Xianxia - Chapter 37
In the room, seeing that Austin intended to do so, August was unable to say anything since he could not be bothered to go to the other courtyards.
Actually, regarding the incident of letting the killer into the courtyard but accidentally damaging Austin’s courtyard…
He was quite embarrassed.
Fortunately, Austin who was in front of him didn’t blame him.
Otherwise, if he were to lose his temper or something similar, he would be in danger as the grand ancestor.
After all, the other party could even kill a mage with the same cultivation level as him.
Therefore, killing him would most likely be a matter of moving his fingers.
Thinking of this, August lowered his head and said to Austin solemnly, “Sir, regarding the true identity of this assassin, I will definitely order people to strictly investigate the matter. When the time comes, I will definitely report it to you immediately!”
August also knew the importance of this matter.
However, he was also a fourth-tier mage. Just now when he scanned the assassin’s corpse with his divine sense, he noticed that this assassin had cleaned up all the information that could prove his identity extremely well.
Under such circumstances, even if the Nolan family was the number one family in Seth Kingdom’s Human Imperial City, finding the person who sent the assassin within the vast kingdom was easier said than done.
Hence, without any clues, even if they knew that it was the two families, they could not do anything about it.
The reason why he had made such a solemn promise to Austin was only because of his reputation.
Furthermore, the two families would definitely not send their own people to deal with this matter. Instead, they were looking for another faction.
As for this faction…
If they were able to hire any random assassin who was a peak fourth-tier mage, then their own strength would be even more terrifying.
The prestige of his Nolan family was only in Seth Kingdom’s Human Imperial City. To the powerful factions outside the city, they might not even be worth looking at.
Hence, he did not send anyone to investigate outside.
“Alright, you can go,” Austin said calmly. It was obvious that he was too lazy to say anything more to August.
“Yes!” August replied and left respectfully with his head lowered.
After closing the door and the annoying person had left, August’s mood eased up a lot.
It was then that he looked at Christina, who was still in a state of shock and confusion.
She was shocked that Austin had just killed a peak fourth-tier mage assassin with just a teacup.
How could she not be?
After testing her talent, there was an assassin who wanted to kill her tonight!
“Christina, relax. With your talent, there will be many people in this world who want to kill you in both the open and in the dark,” Austin said in his usual casual manner.
But then, he seemed to remember something as a faint smile flashed across his eyes.
“Which of my disciples hasn’t been sent assassination attempts by tens of thousands of people? If he or she lost their composure just because of an assassin, then they wouldn’t be qualified to be considered my disciple. I would have told them to get lost a long time ago.”
After he finished speaking, Christina also recovered her expression under Austin’s cold smile.
That’s right, she was Austin’s disciple!
Although she did not know how terrifying Austin’s true strength was, how could she embarrass her master?
Austin suddenly turned to look at Christina and asked, “Compared to this, I really want to know. Under such a situation, what will you do in the future when those assassins keep coming to assassinate you?”
Christina was stunned by this sudden question.
But after thinking for a moment, she immediately answered seriously, “Master, if I meet an assassin in the future, I will definitely kill him on the spot. Even if that assassin escapes, I will do my best to kill him at any cost so that it doesn’t become a problem in the future!”
“Wrong,” Austin said indifferently without waiting for Christina to finish speaking.
“Uh! Master…” Chris was stunned. She obviously didn’t expect Austin to say that.
If they found the killer, they must kill the killer and never leave any loose ends.
The killer was dead.
This was the best solution that she could think of.
But Austin said that she was wrong.
She didn’t understand.
Was there a better way than killing the killer on the spot?
She was a little surprised.
Even though his disciple did not say anything, Austin still noticed Christina’s turmoil.
However, he did not say anything and only spoke slowly.
“Actually, what you said is not entirely wrong. It’s just that it’s not right.” As he spoke, Austin’s gaze focused and landed on Christina.
“You said that you wanted to kill an assassin, but have you ever thought that the assassin is not the only one who wants to kill you? An assassin is just an executioner. If you kill him, these people will still send assassins to kill you.”
Austin looked at Chris. “Can you kill all these people?”
Hearing this, Chris was stunned.
That’s right. She had never thought that the assassin who killed her might not have any enmity with her. Instead, he might have just accepted a mission to kill her.
The employer behind the killer was the one who should be discovered and purged!
Austin’s voice rang out again. “Therefore, finding the source is the most important thing! If anyone wants to send someone to assassinate me, I will definitely dig them out at all costs. Then, I will personally break their neck and shatter their bones into powder. This way, there will truly be no future trouble.”
When he said the last sentence, Austin, who had always been calm, had a change in expression. His calm and experienced aura was suddenly released.
This was Austin’s appearance when he was in the Tian Xuan Land.
This was how he had continuously killed his way to becoming the Celestial Emperor.
Hearing this, Chris could not help but be moved.
