Feng Wu gave Feng Xun an indecipherable look.
Taking that drawing, Mayor Bi examined it for a moment and said after some consideration, “I see that… she’s not very good-looking.”
Feng Xun smirked. “Not only is she ugly on the outside, she’s repulsive on the inside as well! I’m going to chop her to pieces when I catch her!”
Picking up a random stone, Feng Xun tightened his grip, and the stone was pulverized.
Seeing the crumbs drop from between Feng Xun’s fingers, Feng Wu’s heart lurched.
Carefully rolling up the paper, Mayor Bi put it away in his sleeve, then cupped his fists at Feng Xun. “Young Lord, rest assured that I will find this girl ASAP and bring her to justice.”
Feng Xun nodded.
“It’s just that…” After some hesitation, Mayor Bi decided to ask a question. “I was wondering if you could tell me a little bit about this young woman’s crime and maybe her name? It would make my job so much easier.”
Feng Xun gritted his teeth. “Her name? Huh!”
Feng Wu’s stomach lurched!
She hadn’t given it much thought when she met Feng Xun and gave him the first name that came to mind: Feng Xiaowu.
Feng Xiaowu and Feng Wu… The two names were so close that with a little imagination, Feng Xun would probably make the connection… no, that was not good… not good at all…
If Feng Xun found out that she was the ugly girl who tricked them and stole that Immortal Spiritual Fruit from them… Feng Wu couldn’t begin to imagine how furious Feng Xun would be.
Anxiety ate at her.
However, Feng Xun only snorted. “Forget her name! It didn’t sound like a real one in the first place. She was never going to tell us what she was really called!”
He went on with a smirk on his face. “She stole something very important from us; she’s just a despicable thief! Keep this in mind: we want her alive. I’ll skin her myself. She’ll wish she was dead!”
Seeing the serious look on Feng Xun’s face, Feng Wu quietly took a step away from him…
Mayor Bi couldn’t help but give Jun Linyuan a glance, then gave Feng Xun a wry smile. “I’m afraid it won’t be that easy, Young Lord. She was able to steal from you when His Royal Highness was around… she must be a very capable thief. With what she can do, I don’t think Northern Border City is well-equipped to apprehend her…”
Mayor Bi’s words gave Feng Xun a very conflicted feeling.
How was Feng Xun supposed to tell the mayor that the thief who stole the fruit… was an ordinary girl without talent who had no cultivation whatsoever? How could he bring himself to say it?!
However, Mayor Bi knew none of that. Instead, he kept on asking, “What exactly is this thief’s specialty… Young Lord, please enlighten us.”
Feng Xun blushed, then blanched.
All eyes were on Feng Xun, for the others were all curious about the person that could steal a treasure from them when Jun Linyuan was present. That person had to be very talented!
“She can’t have merely been a Spiritual Master, can she? Was she a Spiritual Grandmaster? Oh my, she isn’t a Spiritual Elder, is she?!” Mayor Bi looked shocked.
Feng Wu furtively stuck out her neck like a little weasel and stole a glance at Feng Xun.
Feng Xun didn’t know what to say.
He took a deep breath, then another one…
His eyelids twitched…
How was he supposed to tell Mayor Bi that the thief wasn’t even a cultivator, let alone a Spiritual Master?!
