Chapter 4025 Taboo Clan
A few more silhouettes slipped into the courtyard after Levi entered the ruined building hall. They were none other than Wilma and the others, who were relentlessly looking for an opportunity to teach Levi a lesson.
They had secretly followed Levi when they saw him heading toward the main street of Lightspring after he was done crafting pills. Unexpectedly, they lost him halfway through.
Wilma and the others managed to locate that place only because they felt a weak energy fluctuation from the ruined building area a short while ago.
Upon seeing the corpses scattered across the courtyard floor, they fell into deep thought. The energy fluctuation earlier wasn’t particularly strong, and they could only barely detect it after using a special perceptual technique.
“Ms. Myers, hurry and check this out. From their outfits, these people should be assassins from Skull Mire!”
“They are the cream of the crop in their field and have never failed to accomplish their missions all these years, yet they were wiped out now?”
“How high of a cultivation level must one attain to murder so many fighters while simultaneously suppressing their aura to such a faint degree?”
Everyone present fell silent when they heard that question being expressed out loud.
It was a well-known fact that whenever a cultivator used a technique when facing a fight, their aura would undoubtedly fluctuate, and the degree of fluctuation would increase proportionally to the prowess of their opponent.
To be able to eliminate so many assassins while inducing negligible energy fluctuation signified that the killer had the capability of massacring the assassins with one swift hit.
Could it be Levi? Wilma was scared out of her wits by that thought. If the murderer is indeed Levi, my previous plan of wanting to teach him a lesson will be no different from courting death.
“Who is it?” Suddenly, she turned her head to glance in one direction and noticed two people disappearing behind a wall in a flash.
The fighters from the Prime Association hastily pursued the mysterious figures but failed to catch up with them. In the end, they had no choice but to give up.
“Let’s return for now. If Levi is not at the Prime Association, he’s most likely the culprit for this incident.”
Wilma led the others away after saying that.
Following their departure, another person sneaked into the courtyard. After making sure everyone there was dead, that person quickly sent a message to the Cordierite Association: The assassins have been annihilated. Ms. Myers from the Prime Association was here. The Prime Association fighters might’ve worked together to kill the assassins. The robber is nowhere to be found.
Oblivious to that matter, Levi left the ruined courtyard and returned to the Prime Association to continue crafting pills.
This time, he used top-quality magical herbs.
He created a top-grade pill named Rejuvenation Pill according to the pill recipe in the ancient manual.
That pill was a magical medicine that could almost achieve the effect of resurrecting the dead.
Wilma and the others, who had just rushed back in time, and Sylvan exclaimed in surprise when they saw the pill. They were once again amazed by Levi’s pill-crafting technique and knowledge in that field.
“Mr. Garrison, your pill-crafting technique is one of the best in the entire Kenfort. Even your forging technique is also at that level. I can’t help but shake off the feeling that your skillset is similar to the forbidden one recorded in the ancient manual,” Sylvan uttered with a hint of uncertainty in his voice.
Levi’s eyes shone. The first person who surfaced in his mind was his mentor. Was my mentor a member of the Taboo Clan?
Something stirred in Levi’s heart. He wasn’t interested in Kenfort before, but things had changed now.
Since there was news about his mentor, he had to investigate further.
“Mr. Webber, can you tell me more about the Taboo Clan?”
Sylvan sighed and said, “Mr. Garrison, it’s not that I’m unwilling to divulge the truth to you, but the Taboo Clan is simply too mysterious. Even records related to them were scarce in the ancient manual. I was able to figure something out only after linking your forging technique to your pill-crafting technique.”
Sylvan sounded utterly helpless. At the end of the day, the Prime Association was just too insignificant compared to the Taboo Clan.
Levi was slightly dissatisfied with the answer. He described more about his techniques to Sylvan afterward, prompting the latter to feel more convinced about his hypothesis.
