Holistic Fantasy - Chapter 134[Updated at: 2021-01-13 15:54:11]
“I am surprised . ”
Sougen said as he played with his mustache .
“I didn’t think Seitenshi is the type of person to wake people up in the middle of the night to host meetings . What an eye-opener . ”
Seitenshi remained calm despite the verbal provocations . She nodded with an apologetic look .
“This is a rather pressing matter, please forgive me for bringing it up . ”
“Of course, I am not so petty as to get angry over such a small impasse . ”
Sougen said with a very unpleasant look on his face .
“Alright, let’s not waste any more time, what is it?”
A hand held Seitenshi back from approaching him .
Sougen frowned when he saw this .
In front of two rulers of extremely large regions, Noah entered the scene as he stared at Sougen who looked like he really didn’t want to deal with him .
“Seitenshi-sama, leave this to me, okay?”
“Guild master Noah . ”
She stopped in shock, she didn’t think Noah would interrupt her job .
Sougen laughed out loud . He looked livid .
“Know your place, what makes you think you’re qualified to talk to me?”
Noah didn’t say anything, he didn’t need to . The cold look he gave Sougen was enough to remind him of what transpired last time when Noah verbally wrecked Sougen over the issue of social standing .
Noah kept his eagle eyes on Sougen .
“Saitake Sougen, you’re the one who sent assassins after Seitenshi, right?”
The mood turned still .
She had a look of disbelief as he didn’t think Noah would accuse Saitake outright like this .
Clearly, Saitake wasn’t expecting this allegation, his facial muscles twitched .
Anyone could guess that it was him, after all, he had all the motives to do that and all to gain from Seitenshi’s untimely death . It would speed up his process of making the whole world bow to his will .
But, blaming a person without concrete proof, a ruler no ess, that is simply too foolish .
The bodyguards looked at Noah with judging glances . Seitenshi also got a bit anxious .
Taking a lesson from history, Sougen knew Noah is smarter than this, he knew he is up to something as a chill went down his spine . He used a leer on Noah .
“Civil defense officer, are you defaming me?”
Eyes still as the calm sea before a storm, he pressed on with immense pressure, even Sougen felt like he was pushed back by an invisible force .
“I think you’re the one who is clearest as to the veracity of my claims, isn’t that so?”
Sougen’s facial muscles twitched again .
The four bodyguards around Sougen whipped out their guns immediately .
“Stand your ground! Take another step closer and I will order my men to gun you down for threatening behaviors!”
Noah ignored him as he inched closer .
“Guild master Noah!”
Seitenshi completely lost control of the situation as she yelled inv ain for Noah to cease his actions .
The four guards took offense at Noah’s flagrant disregard for them . They pulled the triggers on their guns .
Bang bang bang bang
Four well-aimed bullets flew in Noah’s direction .
Noah’s figure turned blurry as the bullets simply shot through the remnant image of Noah .
The bullets dispelled the illusory image .
A sinister shadow streaked past the four bodyguards, manifesting itself inf front of Sougen .
Reacting too slow, Sougen’s action did little to stop a hand from hoisting him forward .
Moaning in pain, he was pulled like a sack of meat .
The four bodyguards yelled in shock .
With Sougen captured, the four bodyguards lacked the courage to take any reckless moves, they can only aim their guns at Noah .
“Saitake Sougen, let me make something clear, don’t expect a smoking gun from me . ”
He made sure the guy can see his lips as he spelled out his verdict .
“I am very sure the culprit is you . I can kill you and I can continue living my life as usual, I don’t need to find a smoking gun, got that?”
“You . . I…”
Pulled up by his collar, his weight choked Saitake until he turned purple . He wanted to say something but being choked meant he can only emit anguished lament .
The four bodyguards are shouting and bluffing with violent gestures . Annoyed by them, Noah continued .
“Don’t say I didn’t go easy on you . ”
Noah threw Saitake Sougen to the side .
He collided heavily against the ground as he yelped in pain .
“I like using the tricks other people draw up against themselves . ”
Noah stared at Sougen and he issued a cold edict .
“You tried to kill Seitenshi, now, it’s your turn . I will try to kill you . You have one hour to make your escape, I will come after you in an hour, If you can make it out of Tokyo Area by then, it’s your win and I will stop my pursuit . ”
“If you can’t even do that…”
Noah revealed a pair of eyes that would chill the cores of any mortal man .
“You can kiss your dream of world domination goodbye, watch as I quash it in my hands!”
Noah turned around .
“You have one hour . ”
Sougen didn’t doubt his words, the cold aura lingering around Noah notified him of his seriousness . He yelled in a hoarse voice .
“Go! Bring me out of here!”
The four guards frantically helped Sougen to his feet as they rushed into the elevator .
“Gu-guild master Noah!”
Seitenshi finally got a chance to chime in .
“Wh-what are you doing?!”
“Enough . ”
He stopped her by raising an arm to block Seitenshi . He stared out the window at the night sky outside the building .
“If you still trust me, you will let me handle this . ”
Seitenshi opened her mouth wide but no words came out in the end . She nodded with a worried look .
This night is going to be a long one .
Especially, on a night like this…
