Barging into a Magic World after Returning from Xianxia - Chapter 40
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Several air-piercing sounds rang out beside him.
Killing intent burst forth.
Several mid-stage or even peak fourth-tier assassins charged at the forefront. In an instant, they were towering above Austin’s head and raised their daggers and machetes.
Among them, there were two assassins who did not attack Austin. Instead, they drew their daggers and stabbed toward the seemingly harmless Christina.
“Curtain Stream Slash!”
“Die for me!”
With a low shout, several rays of magic light appeared.
However, the so-called killing moves of these assassins were nothing more than child’s play in Austin’s eyes.
With a light flick of his sleeve, a gust of strong wind suddenly blew forth.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Several sounds rang out, and with a muffled groan, the group of assassins were instantly sent flying.
It was at this moment that Austin reached out his hand and grabbed onto the body of an assassin who was sent flying. He exerted some force with his hand and crushed the assassin’s neck into pieces. After letting out a blood-curdling scream, the assassin died.
Austin directly grabbed onto the assassin’s longsword and charged toward the assassins who were sent flying. His figure flickered in and out of sight as he started to fight.
Among the group of assassins, Austin raised his sword and began to attack. They were also greatly shocked. One after another, they wanted to take out their weapons to fight against Austin.
However, just as they raised their weapons, the sharp edge of the sword slashed at their necks.
Before the assassin could speak, his pupils suddenly contracted. The blood from his neck suddenly gushed out like a waterfall as he fell down with a plop.
“What?! “When an assassin who specialized in sword arts saw this scene, his eyes instantly widened!
When Austin’s sword slashed down, he was actually unable to see the slightest movement of Austin’s sword even with his understanding of swordsmanship.
He was stunned, but the most terrifying thing was…Austin’s gaze when he was wielding his sword to kill.
It was the gaze of someone who had already killed countless people and walked out of a sea of blood. It was indifference.
“I have to hurry… I have to run!”
The sword-wielding assassin was stunned. If he continued to stay here, he would definitely die. Realizing how terrifying he was, he immediately turned around and tried to escape.
However, since he had already made his move, how could Austin let him go?
In an instant, there was a sizzling sound.
The body of the sword-wielding assassin was ruthlessly cut open from the back. Blood splattered all over the place, and a cold light shone.
What was reflected was Austin’s extremely indifferent face.
Facing all the assassins who reacted and fled in panic, under such a huge disparity in strength, he was too lazy to hold back. He directly caught the escaping assassins and started killing them one by one.
An assassin was about to escape from the tavern. Kill!
An assassin whose entire body was covered in ice elemental armor escaped. Kill!
Several assassins gathered together and attempted to charge into the tavern. Their sword auras were sharp, and they slashed with their swords!
For a moment, a cold light shone and blood splattered everywhere.
Everywhere Austin walked, corpses lay on the ground.
Three minutes later, all the assassins from the assassin’s guild were lying on the ground, lifeless.
On the other hand, Austin slowly walked in front of the boss, who was already in a daze.
If the boss was already scared out of his wits, he could only tremble when he saw Austin.
However, just as Austin walked in front of the boss, he heard a clear cracking sound of bones breaking.
An earth-shattering scream sounded.
The boss screamed as he covered his right hand that had been crushed by Austin’s grip!
“Sneak attack? I’ve seen this trick of yours for years,” Austin said calmly as he saw the boss holding his arm in pain.
“If there’s nothing else, I’ll continue,” Austin said as he raised his sword to slash at his neck.
“Please spare my life, my Lord! I’ll tell you everything you want!” the boss shouted in panic just as the sword was about to cut him.
The sword stopped and was just a hair away from killing him. A line of blood started to appear.
Seeing this scene, the boss could not hold on any longer. He had lived for so many years and it was not easy for him to become a fifth-tier mage. He might be stronger than all the assassins here, but he was more afraid of death than all the assassins as well!
So when Austin was about to kill him, he finally could not hold on any longer.
“Sir, if you have something to say, say it properly! As long as it is something I can do, I’ll do it. You only need to say one word and I’ll do it for you even if I have to die! I was blind to contradict you just now. I will bow in apology to you right now!”
The boss was panicking now.
He seemed to be regretting it to the extreme.
Thinking of Austin’s appearance when he entered the door, he wanted to slap himself angrily now.
What the f*ck was there to pretend for? If he had been obedient earlier and listened to Austin’s words a little, he would not have ended up like this!
At this point, the boss was stunned and knocked his head hard on the bar counter.
Austin’s expression changed slightly. He did not expect the bar boss in front of him to go to this extent in order to prevent him from making a move.
However, a smile appeared on his lips.
The reason why he held back was not because he was merciful.
Instead, it was because he already had a plan in mind when he entered the tavern.
One had to know that to take revenge for Christina’s assassination, it was not enough to just get rid of the guild. He had to ruthlessly find the target who wanted to assassinate Christina. Only then would he be able to achieve the effect of revenge.
However, the key point was that he had just used the forbidden ‘soul searching’ technique earlier. Therefore, this skill could only be used once within three days before he recovered his strength!
As such, if he wanted to get information about the other party, he could only pry the information from the boss of the assassin’s guild, the bar owner.
The boss’ current appearance was exactly what he wanted.
In fact, if it wasn’t for this plan, he wouldn’t have wasted so much time talking nonsense. He would have killed all the members of the assassin’s guild with his sword when he entered the bar.
At that moment, Austin looked at the panicking boss and said indifferently, “Now, I can give you a chance to not die…”
“Yes, yes, yes! Sir, as long as you say the word, I will definitely do it!” When the boss saw that there was a chance, a hint of joy immediately appeared on his face as he hurriedly replied.
A flash of coldness flashed across Austin’s eyes as he slowly said, “Speak. who was the person who came to you yesterday and asked you to assassinate the Nolan family?”
