Mesmerizing Ghost Doctor - Chapter 1382
Chapter 1382 The Peculiarity of Master Xiu Wuzi
Luo Heng’s face turned pale and he screamed: “Not forwards, backwards, backwards!”
He didn’t want to die! As an early-stage Golden Core Cultivator, there was no way he would be able to defeat a Peak-stage Golden Core Cultivator. If he had stepped forwards knowing full well he was not his opponent, he would only face death.
“Go to hell!”
The man with the disheveled hair thrust a knife forwards, and at the same time, sprinkled a handful of powder from his hand. At that moment, there was a loud scream, Luo was only able to take a quick glimpse before he kicked something under his feet and fell forwards.
At the same time, Feng Jiu shot a silver needle out of her hand. When the man sprinkled the powder, he hadn’t expected this move from Feng Jiu. He snorted and stared at Feng Jiu with his crazy eyes instantly.
Luo Heng who was rushing forwards was pulled by a force and avoided the powder that was sprinkled in front of him. He had no idea what was going on until he fell on top of that person.
“Ah!” Feng Jiu used the opportunity to throw herself down onto the ground, exclaiming.
At this time, Luo Heng realised that the person under him seemed to be motionless. He was taken aback and stood up to take a look. The man’s forehead had hit a sharp stone on the ground and his head was injured with blood oozing out. He had lost consciousness.
“Psst! It’s him?” He took a few steps back quickly and stared at the man in astonishment.
Feng Jiu rubbed her aching hands and feet and stood up saying: “Senior Brother Luo, you are so amazing. You caught the man with one strike. However, shouldn’t we tie him up now?”
“Ah? I caught him?” He asked in a daze.
“Didn’t you?” Feng Jiu’s eye blinked in confusion.
“Yes, yes, he fell and hit his head on the ground when I knocked into him. Yes, I caught him. Hehe, I have accomplished a great job.” He became proud of himself immediately. However, when he thought of that person, he squatted down and parted his hair to take a look. Frowning, he took out some rope and tied up the unconscious person.
Feng Jiu on the other hand had removed the silver needle without a trace. When she saw his expression, she asked: “Senior Brother Luo, do you know him?”
“Well, he is a member of the Pill Sun Sect, but he has been missing for several months. How did he end up like this? Killing people here?” He said hesitantly, while staring at the man that he had tied up, a little confused.”
“Senior Brother Luo, look. His hands and feet seem to have been tied up previously.” Feng Jiu pointed to the man’s hands and feet and asked: “Who was this man originally in the Pill Sun Sect? Peak-stage Golden Core cultivator and well-versed in pharmacology, he can’t have been an ordinary disciple can he?”
“He is one of Master Xiu Wuzi’s disciples. I’ve met him a few times, and later I heard that….” When he got to this point, he hesitated a little. When he thought about the method of murder, he couldn’t help but be secretly startled.
“What did you hear?” Feng Jiu was curious.
Luo Heng was not someone who could keep his mouth shut. Moreover, he was puzzled deep down and wanted to talk to someone about it, so he whispered: “You can’t tell others what I am about to tell you.”
“Yes, ok.” She nodded: “Rest assured, I will forget it as soon as I have heard it.”
“There were rumours in the sect that Master Xiu Wuzi was peculiar. Every few months, one of his disciples would disappear from his mountain. Some people say that he kept them imprisoned and tested his medicine on them. Some people say that Master Xiu Wuzi kept them imprisoned and used them as playthings. There are only rumours and there has never been any proof, so I don’t know whether they are true or false.”
