After that snide remark, many people asked for this dragon to be killed so as to send a warning to the devil tribe.
Yun Yanli was also trying to use Kun Xueyi to distract the crowd and perhaps even bring them back to his side. He was delighted by their reaction to the sea dragon’s derogatory remark. Some people had started throwing stones, and even rotten eggs at the creature as Yun Yanli stood there watching everything unfold.
The net that Yun Yanli utilized to capture the creature was a very unique and powerful weapon. It was very flexible and could expand and contract at will. Furthermore, it was made of a highly rigid material, which would make it almost impossible for anyone to escape. Last but not least, this net could also absorb the spiritual power of the people in its grasp, so even if Yun Yanli released his captive, they could only beg for mercy at his feet.
Blaming Kun Xueyi for the recent events, Yun Yanli obviously despised the creature. Initially, he had cast a spell around him as an added layer of protection; however, in order to allow his people to vent their hatred at the creature, he lifted his sleeves and removed the protective layer. Therefore, the stones and rotten eggs that were thrown at Kun Xueyi made him look disheveled.
Strangely, Kun Xueyi was not annoyed at all. He just put his arms under his chin and lay there in the net while taking the abuse. In fact, he even licked the egg and taunted them, “Hey, I initially thought that you people were at least a little intellectual. However, it seems like all of you are just stupid!”
Everyone was even more annoyed by his last statement. Yun Yanli faintly said, “Kun Yunzhan, don’t attack my people! Now that your trick has been revealed, what do you have to say for yourself?”
Kun Xueyi ignored him and continued to glance at the faces around him. “In fact, to judge whether this array is good or bad is very simple. Let’s see if there are any more blood bats and blood rain after ten days. Also, since it is the source of power for the wizardry barrier over the city, other cities should also have it. If you all are free, you can go and have a look at the other arrays and see if there are any grievances on the spiritual crystals.”
People in the crowd seemed to be finally coming to their senses. His statement was rather accurate! They could go and check the array in the other cities and compare it with the one here. If what Yun Yanli said was true, then they would know that he was not the culprit behind all these evil calamities in the Shura World.
Some people in the crowd finally mustered the courage to ask, “City owner, perhaps you can speak to the owners of the other cities and ask them to check on their starry array. It will certainly clear any doubts that we currently have about the nature of this array.”
“Yes, since the starry arrays are used to protect the city, they are naturally auspicious. Everyone will understand what we mean once they look at it.”
“Everyone is actually very suspicious after yesterday night’s incident. Any sorts of rumors could be spread around. If you can prove that other starry arrays are also auspicious, no one will ever doubt you again. They will also ignore the so-called God that came to Leguo City earlier.”
The last few remarks echoed throughout the crowd. However, Yun Yanli did not seem to care. “This is certainly possible, and I do not object to it. However, the other cities are quite far away from here. If you want to check on the other starry arrays, I strongly recommend that only three to five credible people go to a nearby city. After I am done with my official duties for the day, I can take them with me to a neighboring city to check.” He spoke confidently and seemed unconcerned, which helped pull even more people to his side.
Yun Yanli’s sharp eyes then fell on Kun Xueyi the moment he was done. He coldly said, “You, the devil’s subordinate, I can’t believe you are still trying to provoke my people in order to make us divided. I will never allow you to do so!”
Kun Xueyi gave him a thumbs-up as a response. “You are good at deceiving! When you asked everyone to recommend three to five people, you were thinking of bribing them, right? Even if you are not able to bribe all of them, you can just kill the disobedient ones off and report their death through some fake news. I am sure these people would still believe you.”
Yun Yanli remained silent but had a murderous look in his eyes. This sea dragon always exposed his wretched plans!
