223 Chapter 223: Isnt it too fast?

    "The chances that the boy is still in the city are quite low. There's a good chance that he has thousand miles talismans as well since he was sent here to assassinate my disciple."Grand Elder continued as he looked towards the sky.

    "Let me try one more time." The Grand Elder said as he left the sect. He moved through the streets of the city as he used his divine sense to sense his surroundings in search of Long Chen.

    With his high speed, he was able to cover the city much faster.

    "Hmm?" Mingyu sensed someone's divine sense pass through the hotel, but she didn't react. She kept drinking the tea she had in her hand. The divine sense soon disappeared.

    Grand Elder scanned the whole city after much effort, but just as he had expected... he didn't find the young boy he was looking for. After his hours of search, he did find a lot of young kids who had a similar physique to Long Chen, but they all had weak cultivation. None of them had a cultivation higher than the 6th stage of Spirit Establishment Realm.

    "Don't worry, Great Master! We have locked down the whole city, we will definitely find that boy."  The Sect Master of the Glorious Blossom Sect walked up to the Grand Elder as he saw him coming back.

    "Hmph! You trash! You couldn't do anything to maintain the safety of my disciples, what can you do now? The assassin has already left the city." Grand Elder sneered coldly as he walked forward, ignoring the Sect Master of the Glorious Blossom Sect.

    "Ling, We are leaving and going back to the Empire!" Grand Elder of the Thunder Giant Sect said to Ling, after that he walked towards the dead body of Ruan.

    'I'm sorry my disciple... Master wasn't able to protect you... but I promise that I will do everything to find the person who killed you and the Empire that backed him." Grand Elder said as he clenched his teeth. His fists were closed so tightly, that his palms had started bleeding. He placed the body of Ruan inside his storage ring.

    Ling bid her farewell to her father and left with the Grand Elder. The Grand Elder hadn't brought his flying beast, thus he left on Ruan's flying beast while Ling used her own.

    Grand Elder had left and the lockdown was released. The whole city calmed down and the Royal family breathed in relief because there was no loss of property after Ruan's murder. They were worried that if they couldn't find the killer, Grand Elder of the Thunder Giant Sect would destroy their kingdom.

    Thankfully Grand Elder controlled his anger and didn't cause any destruction as he left.

    "Just who was that boy? He killed Master Ruan and escaped the City in front of a Sky Realm Elder? That boy... was he really from another Empire? Thankfully, we didn't attack that boy." The Sect Master of the Striking Sword Sect said.

    "I was wondering how there could be a 7th-grade talent. So he was from an Empire! That makes more sense now." The Sect Master of the Earthly Mountain Sect responded.

    "So much has happened today, why is the Grand Elder of our sect still not here? Does he really care more about his cultivation, than about our sect? " The Sect Master of the Glorious Blossom Sect asked Yu Tianhao with anger on his face.

    "I...I don't know the reason, Master" Yu Tianhao responded.

    "Forget it! I'll go talk to him myself!" The Sect Master of the Glorious Blossom Sect said in annoyance as he left.

    He reached the snowy mountain after a short while.

    "Sect Master!" Both the guards standing at the entrance of the courtyard bowed as they saw the Sect Master coming to them.

    "Rise! Is the Grand Elder still inside?" He asked the guards.

    "Yes, Master! The Grand Elder hasn't left his courtyard in the last 5 days."

    "Hmph... even after such commotion? I'll go see for myself what he's so busy with!" The Sect Master of the Glorious Blossom Sect pushed the door with much force. The door was broken and the Sect Master entered inside.

    He walked through the courtyard in search of the Grand Elder until he reached his bedroom.

    "What the!!!" His eyes opened wide in shock as he stood still unable to move even a step forward. The Grand Elder... the second strongest cultivator of the sect was lying dead in front of him.

    Although the Grand Elder was only a 7th Stage Earth Realm cultivator and was quite weak when compared with the Sect Master who had the cultivation of a 10th stage Earth Realm cultivator, he was still quite strong.

    "Who did it? Was it that masked boy? H... How can it happen..." He stood there unable to understand anything.

    The day passed and the next day arrived. The city that looked like it had stopped amidst the chaos of yesterday, again began looking full of life.

    Long Chen opened his eyes as he finally ended his confusion.

    'Although most of my internal injuries have healed, I'm still not fully recovered.' Long Chen thought as he stood up. He turned back only to find Mingyu who was sleeping while sitting on the chair.

    "Don't you have a bed for sleeping?" Long Chen gazed at her with a smile when suddenly there was a heavy knock on their door. Long Chen got alert and even Mingyu woke up.

    "Open the door! It's me!" Came a voice from outside. Long Chen relaxed somewhat and walked to the door. He opened it and found Princess Zhiqing standing at the door.

    "How's the situation outside?" Long Chen asked with a smile.

    "Everything's quite good now! The Grand Elder from the Thunder Giant Sect has left with Ling. The lockdown is lifted and everything's back to normal." Zhiqing said with a smile.

    "Hmm? Isn't it too fast?" Long Chen thought with a frown.

    "Well, yeah. I thought the lockdown and search would go on for days, but the Grand Elder of the Thunder Giant Sect said that the masked boy has already left." Zhiqing replied to Long Chen as she grinned. She walked inside the room and closed the door.

    "That's quite good." A smile appeared on Long Chen's face.

    "Yup. So... where do you plan to go next? " Zhiqing asked with a curious look on her face.

    "Of Course to the North Moon Empire... There is still someone left. Either way, the North Moon Empire is a stopgap between me and my true destination." Long Chen said softly.

    'Ghost Temple... I will definitely find you... and take back everything that you took from me.' Long Chen thought as a grave expression appeared on his face.

    "Why don't you ask the Empire behind you to help? It's really not safe going against the Thunder Giant Sect alone! You almost died today!" Zhiqing said with a concerned look on her face

    'We would have if he was actually from an Empire' Mingyu thought with a wry smile on her face as she heard Zhiqing's words.

    "We don't need them for this small task! I won't need any help." Long Chen said as he turned back and walked to the chair.

    "I know I can't change your mind.So... when will you be leaving?" Zhiqing inquired.

    "We'll leave tomorrow. Why? Do you want to come with us?." Long Chen asked with an amused smile on his face.

    "Yup." Zhiqing hurriedly responded.

    "Are you serious? We're not going on a picnic." Long Chen said to her as he realized that she was serious.

    "I know that it's not a picnic, but I'll be fine. Also, I can cook for you and take care of other things on the journey! I promise that I will not be a burden on you."  Zhiqing said in an effort to convince him.

    "What do you say?" Long Chen looked towards Mingyu and asked.

    Mingyu looked towards Long Chen, then towards Zhiqing before she shook her head slightly.

    "I will follow whatever decision you take." She said to Long Chen.

    "Hmm..." Long Chen fell in deep thoughts. He kept tapping his finger on his knees as he thought.

    "Alright, You can come with us." Long Chen finally nodded his head as he told her.

    "Awesome! " Zhiqing smiled brightly as she moved forward and kissed Long Chen on his cheeks.

    "I'll complete the preparation and tell General Yao." She said as she left the room.

    "Ahh... She did... abruptly" Long Chen was unable to find words to speak as he saw the weird look on Mingyu's face.

    "It's fine. You don't have to explain." Mingyu said, but her actions seemed to say the opposite. She walked towards her bedroom and closed the door.

    "Why do I feel that she's angry?" Long Chen thought with a wry smile on his face.

    "Geez... it's difficult to understand people." Long Chen muttered as he stood up. He walked towards the window and looked outside.

    His eyes opened wide in shock as he saw the long family walking on the streets in front of his hotel. It looked like they were shopping.

    There was Long Ren, Long Xue Ying, Xue, Mei.
