Chapter 473 Filthy Person
The little boy wiped the blood off his face and proceeded to stick his chest out. He set off the feeling of ‘I’m not scared at all’ whilst staring directly at Hexi.
This tsundere act he put on caused Hexi to be unable to stop herself from laughing out loud.
The little boy’s face turned red and he immediately turned around to run away. Still carrying the machete, he ran over to the front of the cages and began to directly hack at the locks on them. Once he opened them he took each of the children out, one by one.
By this time, Gu Liufeng had already single-handedly brought all of the people in the basement down.
He stood atop the mountain of corpses in the sea of blood with his long sword directly pointed at one of the old men who refined pills and coldly questioned, “Tell me, what was the purpose of you kidnapping and bringing so many children here?”
“Spare my life, spare my life daoist immortal ah… We were only hired here to refine Supplement Spirit and Cleaning Spirit Pills for these children, we don’t know anything else ah!”
“Begging daoist immortal to spare my life. We’re actually all Murong family’s people, if you killed us, Murong family wouldn’t let you off.”
“If… If there are children of immortals in this group and daoist immortal takes them away…”
Before the old man could complete his sentence Gu Liufeng had already cut his head off. His head flew off and onto the floor. Just like this, the man breathed his last breath.
He then walked over to Chen Laoba, whose hand had been cut off. Pressing the pointed edge of the blade against his neck, he slowly asked, “Tell me, what does Murong Feng want to do with all these children? And where did you steal all these children from?”
Chen Laoba had already watched with his own eyes as Gu Liufeng killed and slaughtered all his companions. He had long already been scared witless, pooping and peeing on the floor as he watched.
He cradled his own snapped off arm and with a trembling voice he said, “I… I don’t know anything. We’re only in charge of removing blood from these children’s bodies. The people above require three basins full of blood every day, moreover, the blood must be from virgin males and females who possess spiritual roots. As to what exactly the blood is for, we don’t know ah!”
Gu Liufeng’s eyes shifted over to the blood-filled copper basins. They were about the size of a well and knee-high. This much blood… How many virgin boys and girls were required to fill these up?
Gu Liufeng coldly stated, “You guys were able to bring so many children here? Especially children with spiritual roots…”
“They’re… They’re street urchins .” Chen Laoba paused to bite his trembling teeth before continuing to elaborate, “For the most part, they’re street urchins, though there are some that were stolen away from villages. As long as the child possesses the slightest bit of spiritual root, we’ll try our best to get our hands on them!”
Gu Liufeng deeply sucked in a breath at the news. Then he suddenly lowly began to laugh, “Little Yue’er, do you see it now? This is Murong family, one of Yan Jing city’s four biggest families. He he, surprisingly my body possesses such filthy blood.”
Hexi slowly walked over to Gu Liufeng. At the same time, the purple vine flew out from her wrist and pierced into Chen Laoba’s body.
Chen Laoba was overwhelmed with shock. After, he eyes widened as he felt the blood in his body slowly being absorbed by that purple vine.
“Spare… Spare my life…”
His words were hoarse and broken, but as more and more of his blood was sucked out of his body, he lacked even the power to speak words.
Chen Laoba remembered that he had once cut some of the children’s throats like so. He watched as they struggled, howled in pain, and still watched as their blood slowly flowed out, eventually bringing an end to their young lives.
At the time he was so excited, so proud of himself ah. But now times had changed and karma had come so quickly!
Once the Purple Abyss Vine finished sucking the body dry, successfully turning it into a dried out corpse, it shook it’s leaves and disdainfully cast the body aside. It then flew over to Hexi, happily returning into her hands.
Hexi moved to pet the vine’s shaking leaves before turning to address Gu Liufeng, slowly saying, “On the world there isn’t filthy blood, only filthy people. Nobody can determine their birth, but at the very least, we can determine what path we walk on.”
