248 The Beastmaster Missing for Three Years

“I have no reason to go with you, and I have nothing to do with your father’s death,” said Su Bai.

“Your words don’t count!” said Zhu Hanshuang. She had just experienced her father’s death, so she could not calm down at all. She just wanted to find the murderer and give the murderer the harshest punishment.

Su Bai was helpless. He would not sit idly and be taken away by a group of people.

Just as Su Bai was about to summon Bearen. Xu Sanshu barged in with a group of guards.

“Ms. Zhu, you seem to be making a lot of noise in the middle of the night,” said Xu Sanshu. He turned to Su Bai and asked, “Are you alright?”

At that moment, Bing Qingqing walked out of the room next door. It was she who called Xu Sanshu over.

Bing Qingqing noticed the commotion outside and realized that it was Zhu Hanshuang who was coming at Su Bai menacingly. Bing Qingqing knew that something was wrong, so she called Xu Sanshu, who was on duty.

“I’m fine.” Su Bai shrugged and smiled bitterly. “Just that Mr. Zhu had passed away.”

“How could this be?!” Bing Qingqing exclaimed. She couldn’t believe it. The local tyrant who was like a wolf in a sheep’s clothing died in such a short time.

“Could it be that he is really related to the group of people we are investigating?” Bing Qingqing asked.

“Perhaps.” Su Bai replied. He was almost certain that it was related to the Salvation Sect.

After all, the things that had happened in Black City recently were getting stranger and stranger. Clearly, the local Beastmasters didn’t have the ability to do so.

In the corridor of the hotel, Zhu Hanshuang and Xu Sanshu were arguing fiercely. Luckily, Su Bai had booked all the rooms on this floor, so they didn’t disturb the rest of the guests.

The hotel staff heaved a sigh of relief. Otherwise, they would not dare to face the Prestige Merchants Association’s young miss and Black City’s guard captain.

“Enough! We won’t let this go easily. I’ll remember this, Su Bai!” Zhu Hanshuang roared.

After saying that, Zhu Hanshuang left the hotel with a group of people. Obviously, Xu Sanshu had the upper hand in this dispute.

“I’m sorry to have caused you so much trouble. The Prestige Merchants Association has always been doing things their own way. Even the governor has a headache,” Xu Sanshu said apologetically.

“It’s fine. As for the cause of Mr. Zhu’s death…”

“I haven’t found anything wrong for the time being. I asked the gamblers who were present at the time and the footage in the surveillance room, but I didn’t find anything wrong.”

“That’s strange.” Su Bai frowned. He was sure that the mannequin didn’t use any invisibility skills. If so, why didn’t it leave any traces?

“It is indeed strange, but don’t worry about that. As long as you are still in the Black City, the Prestige Merchants Association will not attack you.” Xu Sanshu promised.

In other words, if they left Black City, it would have nothing to do with them.

However, the Prestige Merchants Association only had some means in the Black City. Once they left the Black City, they would lose their advantage.

After bidding farewell to Xu Sanshu, Su Bai returned to his room and examined the mannequin again. He didn’t find anything and went to bed.

The next morning, Bing Qingqing barged into Su Bai’s room before he could get dressed.

“Something big has happened! Ah… You jerk!”

Su Bai was speechless. Then he put on a t-shirt. He thought, ‘Barging into someone else’s room so early in the morning. Who is the jerk here?’

“What’s the big deal? Why are you in such a hurry?”


Bing Qingqing handed him a newspaper with Su Bai’s face clearly printed on it and a few big red words beside it were extremely eye-catching.

The Boss of the Prestige Merchants Association was assassinated late at night. The main suspect is Su Bai!

“What nonsense.” Su Bai smiled bitterly.

‘Who else could do such a thing other than the famous miss of the merchant association?’ Su Bai thought.

The Prestige Merchants Association was involved in all the business companies in the Black City, and the news media was no exception.

Obviously, Zhu Hanshuang realized she needed to make a big deal about it because the hard way didn’t work after last night’s farce.

Zhu Hanshaung first created public opinion to pressure the governor of the Black City. After all, it was the death of the Prestige Merchants Association’s boss. If the governor did not give an explanation, his reputation would be affected.

“You still have the mood to laugh. You were alone last night. Did you…” Bing Qingqing asked helplessly.

“Do you think I killed Mr. Zhu?”

“Of course not. I was wondering if it is possible that Mr. Zhu was a minion of the Salvation Sect, and there was an internal dispute that led to his assassination?”

Bing Qingqing’s fair face was frowning. She was very serious as she deduced her guess.

Su Bai couldn’t help but admire Bing Qingqing. As expected of someone who had been in the military, her intuition was so accurate.

Su Bai didn’t hide the details and told Bing Qingqing about the doll. The whole time, Bing Qingqing was dazed, as if she was listening to a strange story.

“I can’t see anything else, but you can see that they have spiritual power skills?” Bing Qingqing asked.

“I’m not sure. Let’s tell Qingshan and the others about this.” Su Bai chuckled.

The mannequin could speak human language. To be able to cultivate to such a level of spiritual vessel, its strength was unfathomable.

However, it was no different from an ordinary Silver-level Beastmaster after a series of battles.

Since Su Bai couldn’t figure it out, he dialed Xu Qingshan’s phone and told him the truth.

“Got it. Continue on with the clue.” Xu Qingshan’s voice came from the phone. “Although there are few Beastmasters who have a relationship with spiritual vessels, it’s not like there aren’t any. As far as I know, there are a few of them in the Great Wilderness City. Their strength isn’t much different from Beastmasters of the same level. As for the method to hide, I’m not too sure either. It’s quite troublesome on my end. I can’t get away. Su Bai, you should be careful.”

“Understood.” Su Bai hung up the phone and brought Bing Qingqing to Xu Sanshu to ask about Beastmasters who used spiritual vessels.

“I know of such a person.” Xu Sanshu nodded. “There’s no need to check the information. After all, this kind of person is extremely special, but…”

“But what?” Su Bai asked.

“His name is Han Ping, and he went missing three years ago. We still don’t know the reason for his disappearance. I’m afraid it’s impossible for you to get in touch with him,” Xu Sanshu said worriedly.

Su Bai felt that the A-class mission was indeed worthy of its reputation. Just investigating was enough to give people a headache.

“But you can go to his mansion. I’ve given you the address. But remember, don’t take anything inside. The Beastmasters who are connected to the spiritual vessels are all strange people. Their things are so strange that no one can understand them.” Xu Sanshu instructed.

“Thank you, Sanshu.”

After getting the address, Su Bai and Bing Qingqing left and walked on the street. They went to the house of a Beastmaster who had been missing for three years, and trying to find more clues was probably a fool’s dream.

However, Su Bai had a vague feeling that the mannequin and Han Ping must be connected!
