The man nicknamed Black Sickle crossed his hands and gently placed them on the table.
He looked into Xiang Nan's eyes and said, "Before the mission officially begins, I have two questions to ask."
"Firstly, if you die, who should I ask for my fee from?"
Xiang Nan placed an emblem on the table and said, "Moon City, Great Fire Guild, go find the Guild Leader, Golden Phoenix Flower. She will give it to you."
The black sickle nodded and said, "I will find a way to confirm the authenticity of your promise. Then the second question."
"In your eyes, I don't see the determination to beg for death. It means that you didn't issue such a suicidal mission to truly die."
"Then can I take it that you are issuing this mission specifically for me?"
The black sickle took a sip of tea and said, "Normally, we killers don't ask about anything other than the target. It's none of our business. However, the information you've released this time is too special. I have to find out more about it."
At this point, the black sickle general leaned forward and looked into Xiang Nan's eyes more closely. "In other words, what exactly do you want from me?" He said.
Xiang Nan said, "If I die, then what I plan to do to you is no longer important."
"If I'm not dead, it won't be too late to tell you."
The black sickle said, "Please continue eating. I will go to the Great Fire Guild to confirm the reward you promised me."
After saying that, the man stood up, pulled open his chair, smoothed out the wrinkles on his trousers caused by sitting down, and nodded at Xiang Nan and the others. Then, he walked down the stairs very seriously, step by step.
It was difficult for people to ignore every detail of this person's actions. Even his movements down the stairs seemed to have been planned, and every step was taken seriously.
Lan Tian's expression was grave as he said, "This person is not simple."
Xiang Nan nodded and said, "He pays great attention to every detail of him. This kind of person is the most terrifying. Before he does anything, he will carefully calculate every step. If he fails to reach the perfect conditions he pursues, he will not make a move."
"I don't think he's anything special," said Canyang. "Everyone else's experts come and go without a trace. They come all of a sudden, and when they leave, they disappear for no reason. Only in this way can they have the demeanor of an expert."
"Quiet him. Not to mention disappearing from the spot, he doesn't even jump out of the window. Damn it, he went down the stairs."
Indeed, the killer's impression should be the erratic and unpredictable manner described by the residual sun, like a ghost that came and went without a trace.
The appearance of the assassin should be gloomy and filled with hostility.
But this black sickle has no, not the slightest hint of killing intent. You look at him like a meticulous gentleman. (Note: A gentleman is also known as a squire. He used to refer to powerful landlords or retired bureaucrats in a place. Modern times refers to elegant and courteous men. To avoid people mentioning the word "gentleman" as a foreign word.) And even a little too old-fashioned.
Blue Sky said, "This person's realm is hidden very deeply. I can't see it clearly. He should be at least between the 1st and 9th level of the Martial Saint realm."
Blue Sky's estimate was already very, very rough. From the first level to the ninth level, this was not an estimate at all. It was more like nonsense.
This further showed that the Black Sickle had hidden its realm very well, making it impossible for Blue Sky to lock onto its realm within a more precise range.
Canyang looked at Xiang Nan and said, "Why are you doing this?"
Xiang Nan said, "I have my own intentions. Alright, are you done eating? If you're done eating, prepare yourself and wait for the black sickle to chase after you."
"This is the first time I've heard of a suicide mission," said Can Yang, curling his lips.
After leaving the restaurant, Xiang Nan went to the bath street and issued a second mission. This was a public mission that any killer who saw this mission could undertake.
The details of this mission were to protect Xiang Nan and assassinate Black Sickle.
Normally, killers would not accept bodyguards' missions. Firstly, they disdained bodyguards' missions and felt that this would damage their reputation as killers. To put it bluntly, weren't bodyguards servants of the housekeeper's courtyard?
Secondly, all the methods that killers learned were used to kill people, not to protect them. There was a fundamental difference.
However, Xiang Nan's second mission was too special, because this mission was not only to protect Xiang Nan, but also to assassinate Black Sickle.
It was equivalent to Xiang Nan hiring the killers of Bath Street to assassinate the most powerful killer king.
Many killers were immediately attracted over, and they expressed their willingness to accept this mission.
Xiang Nan had the conditions and targets to select the elites of the fifty killers. Moreover, these killers were usually at the second to third level of the Martial Saint Stage.
After finishing, Xiang Nan did not hide anything. He took the 50 people away and told them all the details.
"I issued a suicide mission. In the next three days, Black Sickle will pursue me endlessly. Your mission is to help me assassinate Black Sickle."
Xiang Nan looked at the fifty outstanding assassins and said, "Of course, you can choose not to protect me, but to take the initiative to search for the black sickle."
"But my personal suggestion is that since Black Sickle will definitely come to find me, why don't you stay by my side? This is called waiting for a rabbit. He will definitely come."
"As for the remuneration, after the mission is completed, I will give it out one by one. Everyone, five hundred low-grade Holy Spirit Stones."
The assassins were silent. One of them said in a low voice, "You have to prove that you have the ability to pay us so many Holy Spirit Stones."
Xiang Nan placed the giant saber on the table and directly turned it into liquid.
The killers were all shocked by this scene.
"It's Netherworld Silver!"
Xiang Nan nodded, "It's Netherworld Silver. If I can't pay you, you can exchange this saber for money. I think it's worth a lot."
Not only was it valuable, it was simply a priceless treasure!
The group of killers were finally convinced. They discussed it for a while and finally decided that fifteen of them were going to leave Xiang Nan and search for the black sickle outside.
The other thirty-five people were even more conservative. They followed behind Xiang Nan and waited for Black Sickle to fall into his trap.
"Is there a tallest building here?" Xiang Nan asked.
"Yes, Bell Tower," said one of the assassins.
Xiang Nan snapped his fingers and said, "Go to the bell tower."
Gale Fortress, Bell Tower.
This was a place with a history of over a thousand years. In the beginning, Gale Fort was not such a sinful place. It was a fortified battlefield front.
More than a thousand years ago, humans, demons, and demons fought for territory together, and this storm fortress was one of the main battlefields.
The bell tower was the highest and most eye-catching facility for early warning.
Xiang Nan wore a loose black robe and walked at the front with his hands behind his back. Behind him were Blue Sky, Sunset, Vigorous Bugs, and thirty-five killers.
Xiang Nan stepped onto the bell tower step by step and set a small table here. While drinking, he quietly waited for the arrival of the black sickle.
