"Really?" Ning Yuanshu smiled slightly, with a deep smile on his face, staring at Duan Yuanshan, "Then, how did my elder brother die?"
Duan Yuanshan shook his body and frowned, "What does the Young Palace Master mean?"
"Hehe..." Ning Yuanshu laughed and said, "My elder brother, Ning Yuancheng, don't you know him, City Lord Duan?"
Duan Yuanshan was silent. He naturally knew Ning Yuancheng. When the Holy Spirit appeared last time, Ning Yuancheng brought some entourages to Maplewood City. He also knew about this. Later, he organized an auction meeting and Ning Yuancheng also participated.
Ning Yuanshu said: "As far as I know, my elder brother has gone missing after he participated in your Maplewood City auction meeting. Although no corpse was found, the life-soul lamp placed in the palace went out. Obviously something happened. Even if the place of the accident is not in Maplewood City, it is not far from here. Should City Lord Duan give me an explanation?"
Duan Yuanshan's expression became uncertain after hearing this.
He thought that the other party was settling accounts with him.
Although Ning Yuancheng’s death had nothing to do with him, he didn’t even know about it, but after all, the last time he appeared in Maplewood City, he encountered a bad hand. In any case, Maplewood City is a bit responsible. If Flying Saint Palace is really held accountable, Duan Yuanshan really cannot escape from crime. [MSN: That's stupid]
Seeing his ugly expression, Ning Yuanshu laughed and said, "City Lord Duan doesn't have to panic. Speaking of this, this Young Master wants to thank you..."
"Young Palace Master is joking with Duan?" Duan Yuanshan looked up gloomily.
Ning Yuanshu shook his head and said: "Naturally not, but if my elder brother had not encounter an accident on your side of Maplewood City, there would be no chance for me to be appointed as the Young Palace Master and sit in my current position. City Master Duan said, shouldn't this young master thank you?"
Hearing this, Duan Yuanshan not only did not have the slightest joy, but was cold all over.
His own elder brother died, and the guy in front of him was not sad. On the contrary, he was extremely happy, excited to replace him, and said so in the public.
Ning Yuanshu's bad personality is evident. Duan Yuanshan dared not take it lightly with such people.
In the first seat, Ning Yuanshu said again: "My trash elder brother died. However, this caused a lot of loss to this sect, which is really heartbreaking. In addition... Elder Fu who came to investigate the cause of my elder brother's death also died. In Maplewood City, Elder Fu has the cultivation level of 3rd-order Principle Source Stage, and he is also a rare powerhouse in this sect. It is not unclear that he just died like this. Shouldn't the city lord give me explanation for this?"
Speaking of this, his face gradually became gloomy, looking at Duan Yuanshan aggressively.
"Elder Fu?" Duan Yuanshan was startled when he heard the words, and his face changed slightly. He thought of one person, and whispered: "Is this the person the Young Palace Master is referring to!"
As he spoke, he stretched out his hand and waved forward. The Source Strength surged in front of him, and soon an image of a person appeared.
Ning Yuanshu glanced at it and nodded: "Exactly! He is My Sect's Elder Fu. Fu Sitong!"
Duan Yuanshan's expression changed drastically, and he muttered: "It turns out that he is the elder of your noble sect, no wonder he has such a high level of cultivation."
He also suddenly thought of this person, but he didn't expect that this person was really Elder Fu that Ning Yuanshu said.
He was not familiar with this person, but at the time when the Demon Qi was besieging the city, the Qin family contributed the Black Tortoise Formation. In order to rush out of the city, Duan Yuanshan was looking for a suitable candidate. This person nominated himself and took on the role of a team member. At that time, there was another young woman in the 3rd-order Principle Source Stage. Although Duan Yuanshan knew that these two people were from extraordinary backgrounds, he did not carefully investigate the details of their families.
He didn't know until today that one of them was the elder of Flying Saint Palace.
He pondered for a moment, and clasped his fists, saying, "If the Young Palace Master asks how this elder Fu died, Duan will know a thing or two."
"Oh? Let's hear it." Ning Yuanshu raised his brows.
"A few months ago, the ancient great demon qi near Maplewood City was born, presumably the Young Palace Master had also heard of it..." He now told him what happened at that time, even with the last moment that Zhuang Pan was greedy for life and fear death, the matter of abandoning everyone and fleeing, he did not hide it.
Zhuang Pan's face was sinking, but he couldn't refute, his face was red and blue.
The two Elder, Gaoshan and Liushui even looked towards Zhuang Pan with contempt.
"The great formation was broken and the Demon Qi was fierce. Duan couldn't resist. He could only fight his old life and rushed back to the city with the Qin family. This elder Fu did not leave immediately, but chose to stay behind. Duan has no way of knowing what happened, but since this elder Fu is dead, he may be injured by the Demon Qi."
"That's it..." Ning Yuanshu didn't have much suspicion after hearing what he said. He just pondered for a moment and said: "In this way, it's no wonder that Duan City Lord has done this, but it is Deacon Zhuang's fault?"
He turned his gaze to Zhuang Pan suddenly.
Zhuang Pan’s cultivation level is not low, but at any rate, he has Principle Source Stage cultivation level. He joined Flying Saint Palace halfway, but also got a position of deacon. He thought that by becoming Deacon he can be free, but he didn't expect Duan Yuanshan would pull hatred on him.
He immediately scolded Duan Yuanshan bloody in his heart.
Perceiving the coldness of Ning Yuanshu's gaze, Zhuang Pan knelt on the ground with a puff of fright, with no integrity. Duan Yuanshan and Drunkard looked over with scorn.
"Young Palace Master bright view, the situation on that day was definitely not what Duan Yuanshan said. The reason why his subordinates did that is actually...actually..." He edited half of it, and found that some of it could not be edited. For a while, the word was poor, and his forehead was oozing with cold sweat.
"What's the truth?" Ning Yuanshu sneered, his eyes flickering, with a posture of "I want you to look good if you don't give me an explanation today".
At the critical juncture, Zhuang Pan was getting a blessing to the soul, and his brain was wide open, and he said: "The subordinate just saw things and couldn't do anything that day, so he retreat bravely in order to retain this useful body, to serve the young palace master, to help the young palace master!"
After he finished speaking, he looked at Ning Yuanshu flatteringly.
"This flattery is of good quality!" Duan Yuanshan said softly, "Why didn't I know this guy was so articulate before?"
Although the volume was lowered, all the martial artists of Principle Source Stage were present, who hadn't heard it yet?
"Hiccup..." The Drunkard was still drunk and hazy, as if he would never wake up, he burped loudly after hearing this.
However, Zhuang Pan couldn't help glaring at him fiercely, his face was red and white, he was a little embarrassed.
"Well, it's rare that Deacon Zhuang has such loyalty, take this reward!" Ning Yuanshu was startled for a moment, but with a happy expression. He said that, and he threw a spirit fruit to Zhuang Pan, and the spirit fruit rolled accurately to Zhuang Pan.
Instead of feeling humiliated, Zhuang Pan laughed and clasped his fists: "Thanks for the reward, Young Palace Master!"
As he said this, he leaned down, lowered his head, like a dog eating food, bit the spirit fruit in his mouth, and ate it.
Duan Yuanshan couldn't stand it anymore, he turned his head aside, and remembered that he had worked with this person before, and it was disgusting.
"City Lord Duan..." Ning Yuanshu turned his gaze to Duan Yuanshan again, and said, "This young master has a request."
Duan Yuanshan said: "Young Palace Master, please speak."
Ning Yuanshu said: "The young master is always an outsider. The so-called strong dragon does not suppress the local snakes. What is said here is also one-third of the land of the city lord Duan. This young master hopes that the city lord Duan can help me find out the cause of my brother's death. The murderer must be found!"
The corner of Duan Yuanshan's mouth twitched, and when he was about to deal with a few words casually, Zhuang Pan stood up and said eagerly: "If the young palace master wants to trace the cause of the Young Palace Master's elder brother's death, there is a suspicious candidate."
"Oh?" Ning Yuanshu looked at him in surprise, "What do you know? Speak..."
"There is a kid surnamed Yang who once used an artifact of the Sect!" Zhuang Pan said, "And the artifact is a Ship Artifact that Young Master Ning Yuancheng used before. If nothing else, this kid surname Yang must know some information, maybe he know who the killer is, and maybe he killed Young Master Ning Yuancheng."
"Is there such a thing?" Ning Yuanshu's eyes flashed coldly.
Just after Zhuang Pan’s words were spoken, Ning Yuanshu suddenly slammed a palm at him. In the palm of his hand, the Source Strength was ups and downs. Obviously some secret technique was used. Zhuang Pan was shocked and instinctively resisted. With this action, Elder Gaoshan who had been closing his eyes and concentrating suddenly opened his eyes, and a ray of substantive light shot from his eyes, covering Zhuang Pan.
Zhuang Pan suddenly stiffened in place, and the next moment a muffled sound came from his chest. Accompanied by the screams, Zhuang Pan flew out and hit the wall heavily, spitting out a mouthful of blood.
"Young Palace Master..." He forced himself and looked flustered, "What does this mean?"
Ning Yuanshu coldly snorted: "Since there is such important news, why not report it earlier?"
Zhuang Pan opened his mouth wide and was silly there, muttering: "Subordinate thought..."
"What do you think?" Ning Yuanshu looked at him coldly, "You think this young palace master doesn't want to find out the cause of death of that waste? Hmph, although This Young Palace Master doesn't like that guy, he is a member of my Sect after all. In what manner did he die? The cause of death must be found out, and the murderer must be severely punished!"
"Yes, yes, it's because the subordinates didn't think about it well!" Zhuang Pan responded repeatedly.
"The kid surnamed Yang, where is he now?" Ning Yuanshu asked in a deep voice.
"This person's whereabouts, I'm afraid you have to ask City Lord Duan." Zhuang Pan wiped the blood from the corner of his mouth, and looked at Duan Yuanshan coldly, with a gloating look.
Ning Yuanshu also shifted his gaze along the way and looked at Duan Yuanshan aggressively.
Duan Yuanshan frowned and said, "He has been away from Maplewood City for several months, and Duan does not know where he is now."
"Then which sect does he belong to, can there be close people in Maplewood City?" Ning Yuanshu asked again.
"Duan don't know about this. He came to Maplewood City two years ago, and there seems to be no relatives in the city."
