Xu Hai was dumbfounded.
As the Governor of Chengtian Prefecture, he had just received a sudden order that Duke Su was killing demons in Xuefeng City, telling him to bring his men to support him immediately.
Xu Hai did not dare to slack off and immediately brought officers of all sizes to come at once.
But surprisingly, once they met, they saw Lin Li attacking Sir Duke!
Other people might not recognize him.
But he had seen Su Shi with his own eyes at Weiyang Capital.
Even with his mask, there was no way he could misrecognize his aura!
Lin Li’s intestines were turning blue with regret at this moment.
If he knew that this masked man was the Duke, how could he dare to have even the slightest bad idea?
“Demonic beasts have been plaguing Xuefeng City for a long time, and you, as the prefect of the county security forces, have not paid attention to this.”
“But when you heard that a dragon had appeared, you immediately brought your men to seize the treasure.”
“Even to the point of cracking down on the cultivators who helped the imperial court kill the demons!”
Su Shi said coldly, “Prefect Lin, are you an imperial official or a bandit?”
Lin Li shivered.
He stammered for half a day, but couldn’t utter a word.
“Bastard, how dare you do such a thing!”
Xu Hai got angry and slapped.
Lin Li’s blood spurted wildly and his body fell and flew far away.
Xu Hai cupped his hands and said, “Sir Duke, don’t be angry, this is a dereliction of duty on my part.”
“I will write a letter and submit it to Her Majesty to have this felon dismissed from his post and punished!”
Although Lin Li was his subordinate, he was also a fourth-rate official in the empire.
If he was to be punished and dismissed, it had to be decided by the Empress, and even the Minister of State could only write a letter of impeachment!
Lin Li’s face was deathly pale.
If he had offended Duke Su, Her Majesty would never forgive him lightly!.
Su Shi, however, shook his head, “Don’t bother.”
The crowd froze.
Xu Hai hesitantly said, “Sir Duke, are you sure?”
Since when was Sir Duke so generous?
Lin Li had just breathed a sigh of relief when he saw Su Shi take out the precious sword.
One side was engraved with a true dragon in flight, the other with a phoenix spreading its wings, and the sword was decorated with the seven stars of the Big Dipper, highlighting the power and majesty of the royal family.
The crowd of officials fell to their knees with a roar.
The Shang Fang Sword!
Seeing that sword is like seeing the Son of Heaven!
Su Shi said indifferently, “Impeachment is too troublesome, it’s better to just cut him down.”
The air became deathly quiet, and even the sound of falling needles could be heard.
Xu Hai gulped, “Cut, cut him down?”
“I’m the imperial overseer, and I’ve been given the imperial sword, so I have the right to behead and then file a case, so I shouldn’t have a problem slashing a fourth-rate official, right?”
Su Shi looked indifferent.
Ever since he picked up this Shang Fang sword, he had never really used it.
It was the perfect time to bring this man to try out the sword.
A chill ran down the crowd’s back.
They had thought that Sir Duke would be lenient, but they hadn’t expected him to kill him outright!
Lin Li regained his senses and exclaimed, “You can’t kill me! Even if you have the Shang Fang Sword, you can’t kill someone wantonly, what crime have I committed, what crime have I did?”
Su Shi’s eyes narrowed, “You made a move to kill me.”
Just now, the other party not only wanted to attack Zhan Qingchen to fight for the dragon corpse, but also moved to kill him as well.
The intention of killing is a great evil.
He must be killed!
Lin Li gritted his teeth and said, “Even if I had the intention to kill you, I didn’t cause you any harm and didn’t trigger the Linlang Law.”
“Her Majesty will definitely punish you for such carelessness!”
Su Shi did not bother to speak anymore.
The void behind him opened up and the golden giant took a giant step, directly trampling Lin Li under his feet!
The Shang Fang sword in his hand trembled slightly as the silver sword Qi surged out.
Heavenly Sword Draw Technique!
Before Lin Li could react, the blazing sword light had cut his neck!
Blood gushed out several meters, and his head was instantly severed!
Although Lin Li was at the peak of the Spirit Severing Realm and half a step into the Profound Connection Realm, he had just suffered a slap from Xu Hai and was shaken by Su Shi.
Before he could even fight back, he was ruthlessly decapitated!
Above the remains of the severed head, a wisp of translucent shadow appeared in the air.
It was Lin Li’s divine soul.
How could he have possibly guessed that Su Shi would be so ruthless as to kill him without saying a word!.
The shadow was just about to flee when a bell suddenly rang in his ears.
It seemed frozen in place as if it had been under a body fixation spell.
Then like a black dragon, it was quickly sucked in by the ancient bell.
At this moment, Lin Li seemed to understand why the dragon was no match for Su Shi.
But before he could regret, his consciousness fell into complete darkness.
A powerhouse at the peak of the Spirit Realm had died in an instant!
The crowd fell silent!
Xu Hai bowed his head low, cool air spreading from his spine to the back of his head.
According to Linlang law, Lin Li’s crime does not guarantee death.
But don’t forget, Su Shi isn’t just a Linlang official, he’s also the Shengzi of the Netherworld Rakshasa Sect.
A cruel and vengeful man!
Su Shi’s eyes were indifferent, “No need for you to be nervous, I will report this matter to Her Majesty.”
Xu Hai reacted very quickly and spoke, “Lin Li tried to harm Sir Duke, we saw it before our eyes and can testify for Sir Duke!”
The other officials also reacted and said.
“We are all witnesses …….”
“Lin Li deserves to die!”
“Sir Duke acted in self-defense.”
Who would dare offend Her Majesty’s favorite man for the sake of a dead fourth-rank official?
Xu Hai came over and whispered, “Don’t worry, Sir Duke, this subordinate will take care of Lin Li’s matter, and ensure that it won’t cause any trouble for you.”
Su Shi nodded, “I will trouble Governor Xu.”
“That is already my duty.”
Xu Hai smiled.
Although the other party’s cultivation level was lower than his own, his position was so high that he was authorized to crush people to death!
Moreover, Su Shi had a terrible background and endless potential, so he couldn’t take offense at all.
“By the way.”
Su Shi said curiously, “How did you know I was here?”
The timing of this group of people’s arrival was too opportune.
It was as if they already knew what would happen here beforehand.
Xu Hai scratched his head and said, “I suddenly received a letter from Her Majesty, and that’s why I brought my men here.”
Su Shi froze for a moment, and then he realized something.
Picking up the jade hairpin Feng Chaoge had given him, he muttered, “As expected, the thing she gave me must not be that simple.”
High in the sky above the clouds.
Two figures stood with their hands behind their backs.
Sikong Lanyue shook her head, “Su Shi’s methods are too cruel, that Constable was innocent but he sentenced him to death.”
Lin Li did have bad intentions, but Su Shi also intended to mislead the other party.
If he took off his mask at the beginning, how would Lin Li dare to attack him?
Feng Chaoge said indifferently, “Killing is good, it saves me from having to do it.”
Sikong Lanyue frowned and said, “Do you think that person deserves to be killed too?”
Feng Chaoge nodded and said, “That Lin Li has become greedy, even if he doesn’t dare lay hands on Su Shi in public, but behind the scenes he is likely to create intrigues, such a person is not worth keeping around.”
“Instead of keeping this scourge, it would be better to just kill him.”
Sikong Lanyue said with a frown, “Are you saying this as an empress? The intention to kill must be paid for with the death penalty? I don’t think there is such a clause in the Linlang Law.”
Feng Chaoge’s eyes looked down, “What I said is the law.”
“But you have a point, I will have the imperial court add such a clause.”
“Anyone who dares to attack Sir Duke, regardless of the outcome, will be put to death.”
Sikong Lanyue: “????”
How did I not realize before that this woman has the potential to become a tyrant?
