"Have you heard? The Qin Clan finally captured that demon, Qin Zuijia!"
"Pei! What captured? He presented himself to them!"
"I heard he's gone bonkers that he doesn't even know what he's doing?!"
"Even so he's already in proper custody."
The chattering inside the restaurant continued, as several black cloaked men entered. The scent of beer and wine interlocking together as the talk become livelier.
The shortest of the cloaked men took a glace at the people who were talking about the man named Qin Zuijia. An unreadable expression was plastered on his face. His expression only relaxed when the owner showed them to their table.
"I heard they're going to kill that devil in front of the people. I can't wait to watch!"
"What are you excited for?" a woman about eighty years old smacked the man in the head. She sighed and continued, "Don't you remember how he used to be such an amazing mage at such a young age. Even those sword cultivators can't beat him in combat."
"What are you sighing about, Woman!" He exclaimed. "He's already killed thousands of practitioners from different clans and academies. Even I know that he's irredeemable."
"I was just grieving for losing such an amazing child. If he hadn't practice the unorthodox path then maybe we'd have such mage in our city."
"The Heavenly City has lots of great mages out there. Maybe one day a rising star might come and show the whole continent their prowess."
As the man and the woman fought, the men in black cloak started chattering to themselves. But because of a barrier, their voices seemed non-existent. The short one suddenly stood up and went outside. The rest of the men followed, except for that last man still sipping his cup of tea. His eyes were deep red as though blood had seeped in.
"I wonder what the head would say about this?" He grinned and proceeded to follow the others after emptying the cup.
The moment he stepped out of the restaurant, sounds of screaming broke out. And the man and the woman clutched their necks and killed themselves on the spot.
And in the next day, The news about mass suicide rang all throughout the Heavenly City.
