After lunch, since the tranquilizer effects had yet to wear off, Zhao Xuanxuan soon fell asleep after washing the dishes.
When he saw that she had fallen asleep, Qin Chuan went to the bathroom.
He closed the door and began to perform divination.
“I’d like to see who’s causing trouble this time.”
Qin Chuan looked wicked, with a murderous aura encapsulating his frame.
Qin Chuan closed his eyes and chanted an incantation. His entire being seemed to become unreal.
At the same time.
In a luxurious villa in Gold Sea City, Li Zhongyao leaned on his crutch and stared blankly out of the window, seemingly waiting for something.
Just then, his phone rang.
“Has the matter been resolved?” Li Zhongyao asked solemnly.
The man on the other end of the line sounded flustered. “Boss, we have lost contact with the four Eagle Guards.”
“How did this happen? Did you investigate it?” Li Zhongyao asked angrily.
“Boss, there’s a GPS on the car. We’ve sent people there to check.”
“What about the female student? I don’t want to hear any bad news.” Li Zhongyao was most concerned about this.
“Don’t worry, Boss. We won’t let you down.”
After hanging up the call, Li Zhongyao couldn’t help but think.
For some reason, his eyelids kept twitching. He had a feeling that something bad was about to happen.
He went to the room to check the surveillance images. There were bodyguards guarding every part of the villa, and there were no abnormalities elsewhere.
He felt that it was because he was too tired.
However, right then…
The monitor screens suddenly flickered, turning into static screens, buzzing with static.
Li Zhongyao immediately took out a pistol from the drawer and slammed the alarm button.
However, the alarm was not activated.
At this moment, all communication equipment had broken down.
Li Zhongyao panicked.
He immediately walked towards the door, wanting to go outside.
All of a sudden, the door of the room closed in some inexplicable way.
Li Zhongyao tried to open it, but no matter how much force he used, the door did not budge at all.
“What’s going on?” Li Zhongyao was terrified. He looked around warily.
At this moment, the air seemed to be frozen. It was terrifyingly quiet.
The only things he could hear clearly were his rapid heartbeat and heavy breathing.
Li Zhongyao held the pistol tightly. It was the best thing he could rely on right now.
At this moment, the room strangely darkened.
Li Zhongyao’s nerves reached their peak in an instant.
Bang bang bang!
He fired several shots consecutively.
“Get out, get out here!”
Li Zhongyao shouted loudly.
The surroundings were silent, and there was no movement at all.
Dong dong dong!
At this moment, a bell suddenly sounded.
The bell chimed rhythmically. It sounded like a countdown before his death.
Li Zhongyao’s clothes were soaked in sweat. His hair stood on end, and he was deathly pale.
When the final chime sounded, daylight broke——
At around two o’clock in the afternoon, a piece of news broke out and shook the entire Gold Sea City.
The leader of the Li Pharmaceutical Co, Li Zhongyao, had died at home.
The police immediately locked down his villa and launched a massive investigation.
All the major media outlets were gathered outside, completely jamming up the roads.
The television stations and online media were fighting to report about it.
Online, the news remained a hot topic. Many servers nearly exploded.
The same matter was reported on National Channel 1.
“According to our sources, Mr. Li Zhongyao, the executive director of the Li Pharmaceutical Co. in Gold Sea City, has died mysteriously at home.
“The cause of death is unclear at the moment. The police are investigating it, so there should be results soon.”
Li Zhongyao’s death had a huge impact on the stock market. The stock price of the entire pharmaceutical market plummeted.
The market value that evaporated was immeasurable.
In addition, other industries, such as the raw materials market, also experienced huge fluctuations.
Li Pharmaceutical Co. was in an uproar. Without a leader, everything was chaotic.
The southwestern part of Xia Country was known as the Hundred Thousand Mountains. It was also known as the forbidden zone of life.
There were many mountain ranges here with countless mountains scattered in the area.
All the mountain ranges were primeval forests. Ancient trees towered into the sky, and massive umbrella-shaped tree crowns blotted out the sun.
On this day, many off-road vehicles drove in.
In the apartment.
Zhao Xuanxuan woke up.
Qin Chuan was seated next to her.
“Brother!” Zhao Xuanxuan called out softly.
Qin Chuan smiled. “Are you awake?”
“Mm, mm!” Zhao Xuanxuan sat up and stretched her body blissfully.
“Brother, what are we going to do later?” Zhao Xuanxuan was filled with energy and vigor.
Qin Chuan rolled his eyes at her. “Don’t even think about messing around. I’m going to work.”
Hearing this, Zhao Xuanxuan could not help but feel disappointed.
After all, it was not easy to earn money. She couldn’t be too needy.
“Brother, get off work early then, I’ll make you a big meal.” Zhao Xuanxuan said seriously.
Qin Chuan said with disdain, “Your cooking skills are even worse than mine. If I eat your food, I might just die on the spot.”
“You’re so annoying.” Zhao Xuanxuan immediately picked up her pillow and prepared to throw it out.
Qin Chuan had long anticipated this.
He opened the door a crack and said with a smile, “Xuanxuan, stay at home. Wait for me to come back!”
Zhao Xuanxuan flung the pillow hard at him.
Qin Chuan immediately closed the door and escaped.
Back at the sect.
Qin Chuan maintained his strict demeanor as he looked around.
Everyone was very serious with their cultivation. If newbies encountered something they did not understand, the senior students would guide them.
Qin Chuan thought to himself, “If this atmosphere continues, there would be no need to fear that people won’t be able to cultivate.”
He returned to the platform and sat down cross-legged. He then took out the Immortal Beast egg and continued to infuse his True Qi into it.
The incubation progress bar advanced slowly.
Time slowly passed.
Qin Chuan realized that the higher the incubation progress, the more True Qi was needed.
Between 80% to 90% of the progress bar, Qin Chuan had to rest twice to recover his True Qi.
After 90%, the speed of progress became even slower.
Qin Chuan spent more than an hour before finally filling up the progress bar.
“You little thing. You’re going to bleed me dry.” Qin Chuan wiped his sweat as he waited for the immortal pet to hatch.
“I hope I’ll get a powerful immortal pet.” Qin Chuan looked at the egg with anticipation.
Soon, cracks successively appeared on the surface of the egg.
Qin Chuan tensed up as he crossed both his hands and prayed.
With a crack, the Immortal Beast egg cracked open.
In an instant, a golden glow lit up.
Wow! The legend of gold—
The blinding light caused Qin Chuan to feel delighted.
For example, in some unboxing games, golden light usually meant that the item within was good.
This phenomenon before his eyes was completely in line with the law above.
As the light gradually faded, the outline of some animal could be seen.
Qin Chuan was filled with anticipation, and the glow around it grew fainter and fainter, finally revealing its true appearance.
A small yellow dog entered Qin Chuan’s gaze.
This dog was the same as the Chinese pastoral dogs when they were puppies.
The little yellow dog wagged its tail and barked.
The little yellow dog stuck out its tongue and looked at Qin Chuan happily with its big black eyes.
“What the f*ck is this?” Qin Chuan was confused.
In the next moment, the dog’s information appeared in Qin Chuan’s vision in the form of a data panel.
