Raising the corner of his mouth, the black-robed man left as the wind scattered two piles of black dust.
Fifteen minutes later, the man arrived before the city gates.
“Hold, where’s your pass?”
With a clank, two city guards crossed their spears before the man as they released their 6th layer Qi Condensation cultivation.
Taking out a metal tablet with the ‘serene’ character inscribed on it, the black-robed man let them see it. The guards nodded and let him pass.
