This status effect might not be as terrible as the Curse of Ten Thousand Spirits that Wei Xiao Bei had been afflicted with back then, but when it took effect, it represented an even more terrifying threat than the Curse of Ten Thousand Spirits.
After all, the bad luck from the curse had been mostly negated after he returned from the Dust World back to reality. Moreover, Wei Xiao Bei himself was very powerful and could not easily die to some bad luck.
However, this Brush Spirit's Cursed Letter was made in the real world. Zhou Xing Yuan was also an ordinary person. If he did carry the letter around with him for three days, he might die instantly, without any chance of survival.
Of course, Wei Xiao Bei deduced that it had almost been three days since Zhou Xing Yuan started carrying this thing around. It wouldn't matter if he died, but it would be troublesome if he dragged the dojo into the whole affair.
Wei Xiao Bei was also worried that he would be involved due to the effect of this [Misfortune Descends]. As such, he acted decisively and destroyed the cursed letter with his electricity.
He wasn't confident it would work but fortunately, [Release Electricity] was a pretty good counter to malicious stuff like this.
"Where is 98th Tian Ming Street?"
Wei Xiao Bei closed his eyes and turned to ask Zhou Xing Yuan.
"What? That's the house I bought for Xiao Ling!"
Zhou Xing Yuan was stunned for a moment when he heard Wei Xiao Bei mention an address he was so familiar with. Perhaps it was because the scene of him destroying the letter had been so shocking. He was also a little embarrassed when he answered the question.
It couldn't be helped. Zhou Xing Yuan was a veteran member of society, but Wei Xiao Bei held a high status in his mind. He felt the same awkwardness as being caught dating in school by his parents when faced with the question from Wei Xiao Bei.
"This letter was written there. This means that Zhang Tian Kun has probably turned it into his base of operations."
The words that Wei Xiao Bei said caused a layer of cold sweat to appear on Zhou Xing Yuan's back.
He had never been to Meng Xiao Ling's house ever since she went missing. He had originally intended to move there due to the events of the past few days, just to throw off his enemy.
It was fortunate he didn't actually do that.
Otherwise, he would have been running headfirst into the spear.
It wasn't hard to imagine that Zhang Tian Kun wouldn't be letting him go that easily.
"Let's go there to take a look."
Wei Xiao Bei brought Zhou Xing Yuan out of the dojo. They then called for a taxi and traveled to 98th Tian Ming Street.
The SUV was still parked at the parking lot of Feng Tou Mountain. Even Wei Xiao Bei was trying to think of a way to get his car back.
There was no doubt that the cars in the parking lot would all have their license plates taken. They would probably be able to trace the license plate number to him, no, probably to Zhou Xing Yuan. After all, that car was still registered under Zhou Xing Yuan's name. The cost of fuel and maintenance were all being paid for by the Da Hao Security Firm.
Of course, this was only a small matter. The main reason why Wei Xiao Bei was so active in this matter was due to an omen he had when he saw that letter. If he let this issue be, it might still somehow get him involved in the end.
In all honesty, Wei Xiao Bei would rather not deal with this matter. The powers of those brush spirits and saucer spirits were all too strange to him. They could easily catch him by surprise.
It didn't feel good to be afflicted with the Curse of Ten Thousand Spirits back then. It almost felt like he was in the Final Destination show.
Of course, now that he had decided to involve himself, Wei Xiao Bei would make sure to see it through to the end.
He was also very curious on how had Zhang Tian Kun obtained the approval of the brush spirit and made it lend him power.
Tian Ming Street wasn't too far from the dojo. The taxi arrived at the street after driving down three other streets.
This was a major residential area.
The two of them got out. Zhou Xing Yuan ran toward the gates of the neighborhood that were brightly lit up. The two security guards standing by the gates of the neighborhood immediately ran over when they saw Zhou Xing Yuan, "Director Zhou."
There was no doubt that the security of this neighborhood was also managed by Zhou Xing Yuan's security company.
The Da Hao Security Firm had monopolized the majority of the security market through its relation to the Da Hao Group.
Zhou Xing Yuan nodded. He had to behave like a proper director of a company in front of these employees, "Where's Yang Teng? Have him come and see me."
Naturally, he had no idea that his employees were mumbling inside their minds.
Why did their boss come for an inspection in a taxi? Didn't he have a bicycle?
Either way, the security manager of the neighborhood, Yang Teng, quickly hurried over after being notified.
This was a man in his mid-thirties with a grim expression always on his face.
He immediately walked forward to greet Zhou Xing Yuan upon meeting him, before directing him toward the office.
Naturally, Zhou Xing Yuan was going to act according to Wei Xiao Bei's instructions. He stayed on the spot and looked toward Wei Xiao Bei instead.
"You can go rest. I just need a person to lead the way."
Naturally, Wei Xiao Bei couldn't have Zhou Xing Yuan follow him. The power of the brush spirit was exceedingly strange. He didn't want to carry around a burden with him while he dealt with an enemy like that.
Zhou Xing Yuan never wanted to go either. He felt terrified at the very thought of his mysterious enemy. Thus, he hastily had Yang Teng send a more intelligent security guard to lead the way for Wei Xiao Bei, while he went to have tea with Yang Teng in the office.
Yang Teng was also grumbling a little in his mind at how late Zhou Xing Yuan's visit was. Still, he didn't dare to ask too many questions, since it was a matter of his boss. He pointed at a guard on shift and had him bring Wei Xiao Bei to the house.
Wei Xiao Bei followed the security guard and walked through the neighborhood. He couldn't help but sigh when he saw the buildings around him. Zhou Xing Yuan had truly put in money in this project.
This could easily be considered one of the extravagant neighborhoods in Cui Hu City.
The apartments were built like mansions with gardens. There were only five floors to every building, while each floor was an individual unit. There was a spiral staircase at the side of the buildings. The area of the buildings was large and was practically comparable to a villa.
Soon, they arrived at Block D11. Wei Xiao Bei waved for the security guard to leave and told him to not come back even if he hears anything strange.
The security guard was incredibly curious, but he didn't dare to go against the word of the man that the boss had brought back. He nodded in acknowledgment and turned to leave.
Wei Xiao Bei immediately activated his [Response Search]. Most of the slightest activity would not escape his attention within a radius of four hundred meters.
There was a total of twenty-one human auras in Block D11.
What caught Wei Xiao Bei's attention was the fifth floor. There were two people inside the unit, one male and one female.
Wei Xiao Bei was surprised. As his [Response Search] was activated, the man on the fifth floor seemed to have realized something. The man walked over to the balcony and looked down.
Of course, Wei Xiao Bei made sure to retract his [Response Search] and lean against the wall before the man made it to the balcony.
The man had no choice but to return to his room after finding nothing.
Wei Xiao Bei quickly started climbing upwards along the wall once the man returned to his room.
Of course, this was to prevent any problems if he was to be caught on camera. After all, running on the wall and climbing up the wall were two entirely different concepts for onlookers. In truth, the actions were the same for Wei Xiao Bei. Climbing the wall was just like climbing across the ground on all fours.
Who was the woman?
Wei Xiao Bei had already guessed it. It was probably Zhou Xing Yuan's mistress, Meng Xiao Ling.
This was something he didn't expect.
Zhou Xing Yuan had his men searched everywhere and the two people were just hiding here.
Perhaps this was the best example of how it was darkest under the lamp.
The windows had already been locked shut. Wei Xiao Bei was not in a hurry to enter anyway, so he waited.
A voice quickly came from inside the room.
"Zhang Tian Kun, it's not possible between the two of us anymore. I beg you, please, let me go."
A woman's voice rang out.
"Let you go? You cheated on me! You deceived me for an entire year! I want to let you two vile adulterers know that there is still justice in this world!"
"Ah! Save me!"
A cry came out of the room, yet strangely enough, the cry did not wake the four families living in the units below. It seemed like the people in those rooms had already fallen into a deep sleep that they couldn't be woken up from.
"Scream all you like. Your old lover's coming to see you soon! Hahahaha!"
The voice of a mad man rang out in the room.
Wei Xiao Bei couldn't help but shake his head. It seemed like this Zhang Tian Kun person was far too extreme.
Wei Xiao Bei held some sympathy for this guy. After all, being kept in the dark for so long and being cheated upon all this while was a terrible feeling that no man could tolerate.
The problem was where his path had led him after the whole incident.
Either way, since this guy had associated himself with the brush spirit, he could no longer tolerate him.
The enemy of a friend might not necessarily be an enemy, but they were still very likely an enemy.
It seemed like Zhang Tian Kun was currently torturing Meng Xiao Ling.
Since Wei Xiao Bei had been requested by Zhou Xing Yuan to resolve this problem, he couldn't just let Zhang Tian Kun continue.
Moreover, given the direction this was going, a fight between him and Zhang Tian Kun was unavoidable anyway.
Wei Xiao Bei pressed his left hand on the window and let out a gentle breath of air. A negative jing force was transferred along the window and the latch inside opened on its open. Wei Xiao Bei then pushed the window open and leaped into the room.
This should be the guest room. It was unoccupied and had probably gone unoccupied for a long time, as even the desk by the window was covered in a layer of dust.
Wei Xiao Bei charged to the door in the blink of an eye and twisted the doorknob. The door opened slightly and he silently slithered out of the tiny gap as if he was a snake.
The woman was now tied to a wooden chair in the living room, her hair a complete mess. The man held a bag of salt in his left hand and a dagger in his right. He was gently slicing the woman's body with the blade.
Doing so might not inflict much damage, but once the sharp dagger had opened a wound on her body, the man quickly cast salt over the injury.
