837 Who Provoked Who

    Chapter 837: Who Provoked Who

    Lin Yan leaped forward with a grin. “It’s not a misunderstanding. I’m Lin Yan.”

    A member of the Hunter’s Guild shook his head. “No, no, no. You’re not.”

    Lin Yan furrowed her eyebrows. “Who says that I’m not?”

    “Yeah, I am her witness!” He Lefeng added.

    “She is my employee. Go back and tell the management. The next time you look for her, come look for me,” the man said.

    “May I ask who you are?”

    The man replied expressionlessly, “My surname is Xiao.”

    “Xiao?”

    The leader’s expression faltered when he heard him. “Xiao… What?”

    “Xiao as in yuánxiāo,”[1] He Lefeng instinctively answered.

    “Shut up.” Lin Yan glared at He Lefeng.

    “Beyond the ninth heaven are only clouds,” the man replied calmly.

    “Jiǔchóngxiāo?”[2] Fear filled the leader’s eyes.

    Beyond the ninth heaven… were only clouds… Jiǔchóngxiāo!

    “Do you need me to help you out?” asked the man.

    “Let’s go!”

    The leader scrambled out of the room.

    After they left, Lin Yan stared at the man in shock.

    Who was this man? The people from the Hunter’s Guild had looked terrified when they’d heard his name.

    His surname was Xiao…

    Was there anything special about this surname?

    “Boss, you’re amazing! What do you think of me? I think I have a rare talent for martial arts! Do you need any apprentices?” He Lefeng glanced at the man excitedly.

    “No.” The man glanced at He Lefeng before he turned around to leave. He then interjected. “Don’t provoke them.”

    Lin Yan was speechless…

    Who had provoked who?

    …

    At the headquarters of the Hunter’s Guild…

    A huge macaw landed on the left shoulder of the man in the hall.

    “Return the money! Return the money!”

    “Scum!”

    “Scum! Return the money!”

    A few middle-aged men walked in.

    “Si Bai…”

    A middle-aged man glanced at the exceptionally handsome man.

    “What’s the matter? Are you sure you can’t handle the person you’ve hired?” Si Bai sneered coldly.

    “It’s not that… It’s just a little tricky. The people we sent out previously said that they are with her,” one of the middle-aged men said with a frown.

    “Oh, there are clouds outside the ninth heaven. This is the ninth level of heaven.” Si Bai’s lips curled up. “Ha! It’s getting more and more interesting. That woman is indeed extraordinary. She even showed that she is in the ninth heaven.”

    “Si Bai, you should know that we’re just a branch. It’s impossible for us to deal with the ninth heaven… Besides, she’s just a woman. There are all kinds of women in this world. Why did you insist on snatching a woman who’s in the ninth heaven? The ninth heaven…”

    Before the middle-aged man could finish his sentence, Si Bai turned to him with a pair of crescent-shaped eyes.

    The middle-aged man didn’t dare say anything.

    All these years, the branches of the Hunter’s Guild had been maintaining the order in the capital. They had always been calm and composed. Who would have thought that they would attract so many masters just because of a woman?

    It was because of Si Bai and the Pei Family. She had even reached the ninth heaven!

    What was she trying to do? Was she trying to tear the sky apart?
