Combining various pieces of intelligence, Night Crow used his sharp intuition to uncover the truth.

This intelligence was provided by the Taoist Artifact Pavilion to the rascal, who was paid to pass it on to Bai Xiaoyao.

“Why? Is Lin Qingfeng trying to cause trouble for the Demon Sect’s Holy Saint? Even if he does, it would only affect the reputation of Luo Wusheng  a little bit… And where did the Taoist Artifact Pavilion get this information from? The spies didn’t detect anyone monitoring the Demon Artifact Pavilion besides them…”

“Is someone else watching the Demon Artifact Pavilion? And they’re hiding so well that even the spies that i sent didn’t notice their presence?”

The eyes behind Night Crow’s mask flickered.

Indeed, his decision to keep an eye on the Demon Artifact Pavilion was correct.

In such a short amount of time, he had already caught the tail of a special force that had infiltrated the royal city.

But he couldn’t yet determine which faction this group was related to.

“Did those outside forces reach a deal with the Taoist Artifact Pavilion? No, perhaps it’s not the whole Taoist Pavilion itslef, perhaps it’s just that silly kid Lin Qingfeng… No, perhaps  that silly kid was also merely being used without his knowledge by the outside force?”

Night Crow’s fingers tapped the desk faster and faster.

“But what is their goal in doing this? Do they want to achieve something through the Demon Sect’s Holy Saint?”

“In the end, what is the Demon Sect’s Holy Saint here in the royal city for? Is he really just here to reorganize the Demon Artifact Pavilion? Today’s momentum almost had me convinced, but if all of this is just a facade…”

Night Crow sighed and stopped tapping his fingers on the desk.

For some reason, whenever he was looking at information about the Demon Sect’s Holy Saint, he felt like sharing it with his good colleague, Kirin.

But he didn’t know where she was right now.

Meanwhile, Bai Xiaoyao was walking towards the Red Blossom Pavilion.

But her pace was not particularly hurried.

As a demoness, she was not a woman who only had a big chest but no brains.

In the original work’s harem, those girls who had bigger chests than her were not as smart as her, and those who were smarter than her had smaller chests.

(…That person was deliberately trying to lure me to Red Blossom Pavilion to find my senior brother, but he’s just an ordinary person and was probably hired to do the job by someone else.)

Bai Xiaoyao tried to extract information about the mastermind behind this from the passerby, but it was clear that the person didn’t know which force had hired him.

Currently, the most likely culprit seems to be the Taoist Artifact Pavilion, because Bai Xiaoyao managed to get information about the person’s frequent activities around the area.

(But why would they do this?)

To create a rift between her and her senior brother?

Bai Xiaoyao wondered.

To be honest, she didn’t believe that her dense as a rock-like senior brother would be interested in the courtesans of the Red Blossom Pavilion.
Even she, who was quite confident in her own appearance, couldn’t get him to touch her after trying for a bit.

Her senior brother always acted like an elder around her, keeping a careful distance even in their interactions.

The only time he crossed that boundary was when he impulsively hugged her after she gave him so many surprises.

But even that hug ended quickly.

How could a senior brother that act like that be interested in the vulgar women of the Red Blossom Pavilion?

So Bai Xiaoyao wasn’t very convinced that Luo Wusheng would be lingering around Red Blossom Pavilion.

But as she inquired further, she discovered that her senior brother might actually have gone there.

(Maybe my senior brother did go in the direction of Red Blossom Pavilion, but that may not have been his ultimate goal… It could also be one of the mastermind’s plans.)

Bai Xiaoyao instinctively tried to give her senior brother the benefit of the doubt.

Although this kind of exoneration was a bit weak.

After all, her senior brother went with the four officer of the Demon Artifact Pavilion and several disciples from the Hehuan Realm.

What else could they be doing there?

(No, wait… Maybe my senior brother just happened to be heading in the same direction as them…)

While Bai Xiaoyao thought about this, another thought couldn’t help but bubble up.

What if her senior brother really was really going to Red Blossom Pavilion?

As his junior sister, Bai Xiaoyao felt that it was necessary to bring her senior brother back on track.

Hmm, by any means necessary.
