Yuri almost vomited upon witnessing that.
Everyone in Jetroina knew Mieko was a femme fatale, yet she was pretending to be an innocent young woman at that moment.
Teasingly, Jagoan asked, “Since you’re so obedient, what if I ask you to die now?”
Mieko was stunned, her eyes filled with horror.
Before she could react, he removed his hand from her cheek and hit her head, cracking it open like a watermelon.
Blood spurted into the air, shocking everything at the scene.
“How dare you try to seduce me, you dirty b*tch. Did you really think I’m a tasteless man who’s fine with any cr*ppy women?” He wiped his hand clean and spat at her corpse.
Seeing the scene, Yuri was flabbergasted.
I didn’t expect Jagoan and Jagoan, the people I rode a plane with together here, to have this kind of personality!
Their cruel, murderous demeanor doesn’t fit their images at all!
“When will Thousand Crane Shrine’s grand ritual be held, Ryosuke?” asked Jagoan.
“Tomorrow, Master,” Ryosuke answered quickly.
“Good. I’ll visit the shrine the next day to meet with Jetroina’s divine being.” Jagoan smiled faintly.
Ryosuke flattered him, “The other divine beings are fakes, Master. You’re the only genuine one I know of.”
Meanwhile, Hiroichi was sitting in a room inside Thousand Crane Shrine while people were busying about outside.
The towering altar and many grandstands had been built. Tomorrow would be the day of Thousand Crane Shrine’s grand ritual.
Every shrine in Jetroina regarded its own grand ritual with great importance. All shrines relied on their worshipers to develop, and the grand ritual was their chance to showcase themselves. If the shrines did an outstanding job with the ritual, they would attract more worshippers. The number of worshippers represented the influence of the shrine in Jetroina.
Frowning, Hiroichi wondered aloud, “Tomorrow is the grand ritual. Why hasn’t Maki or Mieko reported back? No matter what happens to them, I mustn’t allow any mistakes at the ritual tomorrow…”
It was then an old man, who sat with Hiroichi and Maki a few days ago, appeared behind Hiroichi.
Upon seeing him, Hiroichi kneeled before him. “I’ll definitely make this ritual a success, Your Holiness…”
Aside from Hiroichi, no one knew the old man was a divine being.
“All right. Once I’ve recovered my godly strength, I’ll help you achieve your breakthrough,” promised the old man.
“Thank you, Your Holiness!” exclaimed Hiroichi without lifting his head.
After he sensed the old man had left, he slowly stood up with cold sweat covering his forehead.
I hope tomorrow’s ritual will conclude without a hitch…
The next day, Jagoan and his group made their way to Thousand Crane Shrine.
It was located on the peak of Fujio Mountain. The climate there was frigid all year round, and the fog was thick. Even then, it didn’t stop the worshippers from making the trip to the shrine for the grand ritual.
The worshippers’ journey up the mountain was a strange sight to behold because many of them were accompanied by a young girl.
