Fury Towards The Burning Heaven Chapter 654
In the next few days, Jiang Yi kept the shield around the courtyard shut. He didn't see anyone or have any intention to pledge to any faction. He no longer went out to gather information. Instead, he released the Divine Perception sorcery arts to collect intelligence.
His divine senses spread out like a breeze. It easily penetrated the shield around the courtyard which was too low level to stop his Divine Perception.
The Sky Thunder City was very large. Jiang Yi's Divine Perception swept across the city from the sky. He didn't risk looking into the yards one by one. He just slowly explored from the sky to familiarize himself with the general situation of the Sky Thunder City.
Soon, Jiang Yi's Divine Perception traveled one round of the city. Of course, he didn't dare to get near the city plaza in the city center as he found a giant castle over there. It was obviously the City Lord's mansion. It was still okay to offend other people, but if the Lu clansmen were annoyed, Jiang Yi had to flee for his life.
The Sky Thunder City was very large. Apart from the City Lord's castle, the rest of the buildings looked exactly the same. They were all small courtyards like the one he stayed in. There were 100,000 of them in total. There were people in many yards; some people didn't turn on the shield and could be easily detected.
Other than the city plaza, the rest of the city was quite deserted. Basically, no one wandered on the street. People either went back to their own yards, went to the east city gate, or to the city plaza.
When Jiang Yi was going to release his Divine Perception to look into the situation outside the east city gate, he found a thin and transparent shield. Though he was able to easily penetrate it, he didn't take the risk. He hadn't grasped the full picture yet; it was better to be safe than sorry.
He withdrew the Divine Perception and asked the crowd to sit in the yard and never open the shield no matter who came. Then, he left the yard by himself and walked to the plaza in the city center.
On his way, more people that saw him showed a sarcastic smile. Nobody talked to him. Jiang Yi remained silent, too, and quietly walked to the city plaza.
After dozens of streets, he reached the plaza in the city center.
The plaza was very big with a diameter of about 33 kilometers. There was a huge castle to the north, and many people were coming in and out of the castle. Of course, there were also many people strolling on the city plaza.
Jiang Yi's arrival attracted a lot of attention. Many people whispered, and some gave him a murderous look.
"Look, that's the new guy. He is allegedly called Lone Wolf?"
"The one that dares to ask Chief Long and Brother Ba Dao to get lost?"
"That's him. It's said that he brings four with him? Haha, Shall we take a bet on how many days he's left with."
"What's the point? He will definitely be dead as soon as he leaves the city!"
Many people were whispering, and some pointed their fingers at Jiang Yi. Jiang Yi's fiery hair was very easily recognized. His burst of shout that asked the man of Brother Ba Dao was very loud, and it inevitably drew people's attention.
Jiang Yi ignored the crowd and walked straight to the City Lord mansion. The castle gate was open with no one on guard. He walked inside, glanced around, and secretly admired that the Lu Clan was indeed good at doing business.
The castle was very large. He saw never-ending glamorous shops at first glance. There were restaurants, casinos and even brothels!
All kinds of treasures were available in these countless shops. Jiang Yi saw a sign outside one shop, selling all kinds of saint artifacts, transcending saint artifacts
There were hundreds of shops and over a dozen restaurants and brothels. It was like a sovereign empire. One could find whatever they wanted in this City Lord mansion as long as he had enough celestial stones.
There was a stone staircase that spiraled to the second floor along the wall. Upstairs should be the place to hand in thunder stones in exchange for merits. Jiang Yi didn't risk going up for nothing and began roaming on the first floor.
"Are you Lone Wolf?"
In front of an inn, he was stopped by a young martial artist. He pointed at an elegant pavilion and said, "Brother Ba Dao asked you to go inside."
"Brother Ba Dao?"
Jiang Yi's eyes became cold. He looked at the elegant pavilion and found two Heaven Monarch Realm Martial experts standing outside, and a fat man binge eating inside. The man never did even looked outside.
"Please tell Brother Ba Dao that Lone Wolf doesn't want to cause trouble and doesn't fear troubles as well!"
After that, Jiang Yi turned around and walked outside. The young martial artist's face darkened, but he didn't dare to stop Jiang Yi. Even Ba Dao would be executed if he used violence inside the castle, let alone him. There were two peak-staged Heaven Monarch Realm martial experts on the second floor.
A wine glass was smashed into pieces inside the elegant pavilion. That fat man swept across the back of Jiang Yi treacherously and fiercely. He looked like a wild beast that was prepared to devour a man.
"Brother Ba Dao?"
One of the two Heaven Monarchs that stood outside went in. Ba Dao tossed a bone in his hand and said coldly, "Fei Guo, have people watch him. Kill this bastard after he leaves the city. If those sluts go out of the city as well, take them down and send them to me."
Heaven Monarch Fei Guo cupped his hands before striding out. He soon disappeared into the city plaza.
Jiang Yi never went out after he returned from the City Lord mansion. However, he continued to probe the city with his Divine Perception.
In the late afternoon, ten brigades returned to the east city gate. Every team had more than 1,000 men who marched back to the city in a mighty contingent. Every team was led by Heaven Monarch martial artist. There was not one but five Heaven Monarchs in every team!
These ten brigades dispersed after returning. No one came in or went out through the east city gate. The lightning bolts outside the city disappeared as well; the entire Sky Thunder Island got darker.
The city plaza and the City Lord mansion were particularly noisy. Many Heaven Monarch Realm Martial experts appeared and led their minions to the City Lord mansion. They were obviously looking for fun.
At midnight, the Sky Thunder City completely quieted down. Jiang Yi asked everyone to rest, but he sat cross-legged and cultivated for a night!
Before the day broke, the city became lively again. Martial artists swarmed to the city plaza. A total of 10,000 men gathered at the plaza. They were divided into ten brigades and marched to the east city gate in a continuous stream. The gate was big enough even for 10,000 men to pass smoothly and orderly. Otherwise, it would take quite some time for all these people to pass through.
When the sun completely rose up, all the 10,000 men left the city; and the city became quiet again. Jiang Yi stopped navigating with Divine Perception, too. He then waved his hand and said, "Go! Let's go out of the city!"
"Going out of the city?"
Feng Luan and the rest were shocked. They had three days and only needed to hand in the thunder stones on the fourth day. Why did Jiang Yi want to leave the city on the second day? Was it really wise to leave now when they hadn't gathered much information?
Feng Luan was going to talk Jiang Yi out of this, but she kept quiet upon seeing his determined face. The rest wouldn't even try to persuade him. They didn't have much to pack, just got up, and walked outside.
"Alright, march to the east city gate as fast you can!" Once they were outside the courtyard, Jiang Yi waved and rushed forward with Jiang Xiaonu. Feng Luan and the rest followed him closely. They headed straight to the east city gate.
Jiang Yi didn't lose his mind!
If Feng Luan and the group didn't think that he would leave the city today, would his enemies expect this? Only when he didn't play by the rules could he disrupt the enemy's arrangement and have more time to counterattack.
