Chapter 10 – Is Su Shi really dead?
The city was located in a remote area, adjacent to the Western Desert, and was named so because of the wind and sand that blew through over the years.
Originally it was under the jurisdiction of the imperial dynasty, but the entire Southwest Region had been infiltrated by the Demon Sect, and the so-called City Lord had already existed in name only.
It was no exaggeration to say that this was a place beyond the law.
In the center of the city, the Demonic Sect’s residence.
Inside the hall, crowds of people sat on both sides in turn, but the topmost seats were empty.
“So, it’s been five days and still no news of Su Shi?”
“Not yet, I have sent people to look for him, but his fate is unknown dead or alive!”
“I think he might die this time!”
“I don’t know what kind of courage he has, how dare he go looking for Zhan Qingchen by himself?”
“He’s probably gone mad!”
“Hmph, a punk who relied on his background to reach the top, who can he blame for seeking his own death?”
The crowd murmured.
Su Shi was not particularly strong, yet he was able to become the commander of Fengsha City, clearly relying on his Su family background.
Of course this would not be well received in the meritocracy-based Demonic Sect.
Moreover, the five and three times tumultuous operations all ended in failure, the City could no longer tolerate losing more than a third of its strength.
His reputation had even fallen to the bottom.
There were many people in Fengsha City who hoped for his death.
At that moment, a sturdy man slowly walked in.
The hall was instantly silent.
This man was muscular like a dragon, with qi and blood like an iron tower, and exuded a forcing pressure.
The second in command in Fengsha City.
Lion King, Shi Meng!
Shi Meng looked around, and where his gaze went, the crowd fell silent.
He nodded in satisfaction and said in a low voice, “I just received news from the sect that it has been determined that Commander Su Shi is dead, so I will take over Fengsha City’s affairs for now.”
Hearing these words, the lobby fell silent for a moment, followed by a round of applause.
“That stone-head punk deserves it!”
“Fengsha City has suffered because of Su Shi for a long time!”
“With Commander Shi, Fengsha City’s revival is imminent!”
Whether they were sincere or not, the crowd clapped and clapped, giving Shi Mang quite a face.
Shi Meng was also beaming red.
He had waited for this day for too long.
Being at the Early Stage of the Realm of Golden Elixir, but having to listen to a little kid from the Realm Foundation Establishment, it filled his heart with hatred and anger.
But after all, Su Shi was a Demon General appointed by the Sect Patriarch, so even if he was displeased, there was nothing he could do.
But to his surprise, that person had made a fool of himself by daring to challenge Zhan Qingchen who was beyond his realm!
Shi Meng clenched his hands into fists and pressed them against his chest, then said dramatically, “Commander Su’s life and death have not yet been determined, so I am only temporarily in charge, and if Commander Su returns someday, this position should still be returned to him.”
After all, he still has to do his best to save face.
“Don’t say that, his return will only bring disaster!”
A dark-skinned and depraved-looking man sneered, “Zhan Qingchen is the Chief Disciple of Tianji Pavilion, the first genius of the righteous path! Isn’t killing him no different from killing a chicken?”
Shi Meng did not say anything, but the smile in his eyes grew stronger.
The depraved man cleared his throat and said, “Since Commander Shi has taken over Su Shi’s position, then naturally, Su Shi’s mansion and property will also belong to Commander Shi, so everyone shouldn’t have a problem with it, right?”
“Of course not.”
It was obvious that the depraved man was Shi Meng’s person.
Even before Su Shi’s corpse was found, this party was already thinking about property, and indeed it was not something appropriate.
But there was no one who would stand up and object.
Who would dare offend Shi Meng, who was the center of attention, for the sake of a dead person?
This was the reality.
The depraved man smiled and said, “Commander Shi, there’s nothing else to do anyway, why don’t we go and see your new house first?”
Shi Meng had long wanted to see it, so he nodded and said, “It won’t hurt to take a look.”
The two men left the lobby directly, leaving the crowd of people to stare at each other.
Su Shi’s mansion was located in the center of the city.
With five gates and seven entrances and a spacious courtyard, it is a mansion in the true sense.
But at this moment, Shi Meng stopped in front of the door.
Only a young girl with a clean appearance stood at the door and frowned, “Deputy Shi? What are you doing here?”
This address caused Shi Meng to frown slightly, and mist swept across the bottom of his eyes.
The depraved man angrily reprimanded, “Presumptuous! The one standing in front of you is Commander Shi!”
The young girl frowned, “The Commander of Fengsha City is my master, when did he become you, Shi Meng?”
“Heh, so you still don’t know.”
The depraved man laughed coldly, “Su Shi is dead, his bones are gone! The sect has appointed Commander Shi to take over the position, and all of Su Shi’s houses and properties belong to Commander Shi!”
“What are you saying?”
The young girl was struck by lightning at his words.
If Shi Meng had no doubts about it, then there was a high probability that it was true!
“My master is …… dead?”
Her face was pale, her figure swayed and she almost sat on the ground.
With a perverted look in his eyes, the depraved man came to Shi Meng’s ear and said, “Commander Shi, this servant should also be part of the property, right? Since Su Shi is dead, isn’t the girl now yours?”
Looking at the beautiful face of the young girl, Shi Meng couldn’t help but lick his lips.
“That makes sense, first tie her up for me, then I will slowly concoct her at night!”
The depraved man smiled fiercely and reached out to grab the young girl.
Faced with a large, grasping hand, the young girl had no time to dodge and could only close her eyes in despair.
However, the palm did not touch her.
The young girl opened her eyes in confusion, only to see a sturdy figure standing in front of her, and a familiar cold voice sounding.
“Shi Meng, how dare you touch my woman.”
