Chapter 30: Thievery!

Ace's complexion was gloomy after seeing Rylan wearing the blue storage ring. He really wanted that ring, but Ace's reasons forced him to stay calm.

All this communication with the system only took a few seconds.

Now, Ace began to think with lightning speed when he abruptly remembered something and became pale just by thinking about it.

He recalled Eva's words, 'When Rylan took this mask out of thin air, I was surprised by it!'

Ace didn't pay much attention to it at that time. He thought it could be a secret skill or something like that. But now, the story was different because he knew about the existence of the storage ring!

'If Eva was right, and he took that mask out of thin air, didn't it mean what I'm looking for is also in that ring?' Ace reflected and came to a scary conclusion. He took a deep breath and calmed his pounding heart.

If Ace's guess were correct, Rylan would most likely have kept essential things and treasures of the Grant family in that storage ring. And if he could steal that storage ring, that means his mission would be complete, and he would be able to get out of there right now. Furthermore, he didn't need to go to the Grant family's main mansion to search for their treasury either.

Furthermore, what If he didn't find that 'thing' in the treasury of the Grant family?

At that time, he has to go after Rylan, and finding Rylan in his own house is not difficult, but he has to go through all types of security and traps. However, right now, he was standing right in front of him.

Now, Ace was having an internal conflict and couldn't make his final choice,

'If I strike now, I can leave the Grant family. But if I can't find that 'thing' in Rylan's space ring, Eva would be in trouble, and if I can't find that 'thing' in the treasury either… I'm 90% sure that Rylan has that 'thing' in that ring because no one wants to put this precious stuff in the treasury that someone else can open. Sighs...' Ace sighed helplessly.

However, the next moment, Ace's eyes shone brightly and focused the soul sense solely on Rylan. He finally made a choice.

If Ace noticed even the slightest change in Rylan's soul wave, he would strike without hesitation!

---

On the stage, Felix was already standing beside his father in front of the 'White Cultivation Measuring Crystal.'

Rylan said in a commanding tone, "Start!"

Felix didn't linger; putting his hands on the crystal, he poured the Qi. The crystal began to shine brightly, and a dim green color gate formed.

Third Gate of Qi Gate Realm!

The mob exclaimed in astonishment because it was challenging to find someone of Felix's age who opened the 3rd Gate in the lands of cities.

Moreover, everyone knows that only Asher had reached the 3rd stage of the Qi Gates realm at the age of 20 in the entire River-flower city and was recognized as the top genius of the whole city. But now there was another one emerged, and he was even younger than Asher.

The most crucial point was that both were Rylan's Son and Grandson. If Rylan reaches the Qi Foundation Building realm in the near future, and with talents like Rylan and Ashen on his side, Grant's family will definitely rise above the Layton Family.

'Nephew, let's see if you can still act arrogant in front of me when you see me next time.' Felix smilingly imagined after seeing everyone's reaction.

His nephew Asher always looked down on him because he was younger and weaker. Felix always wanted to suppress him and beat Asher into submission. He has shown more talent than his nephew and even surpassed him.

Now, even his father, who always praised his nephew, has to acknowledge him.

Rylan was amazed by this sudden pleasant surprise. He didn't expect that his son had already surpassed his talented grandson, whom he was very fond of. He felt gratified and blessed by heaven at this moment.

A smile crept on his expressionless face for the first time as he thought, 'Two talents in a single generation, heh. No one can stop the rise of my Grant family now!'

The way Rylan looked at Felix also changed, and his gaze became gentler. He gave Felix the same position as Asher in his heart.

"GOOD, GOOD! You didn't disappoint me, Your Father! And proved that my Grant family is a den of geniuses. I announced that this year's meeting has ended with my son Felix as the winner. Nevertheless, please stay because a celebration banquet for my son's great achievement will be held tonight!"

Rylan announced with a rare smile on his face, and everyone started to cheer. All the elders of the family smiled gleefully. They didn't delay either and quickly began the preparation for the banquet.

Caden saw his big brother in a good mood and came to him with a broad smile, saying, "Congratulations, big brother. You have two 'dragons' now."

"Hahaha, You're too polite, Caden!" Rylan laughed heartily, hearing Caden's words.

Rylan patted his shoulder happily with his left hand when his smile suddenly stopped because he saw his hand was lacking something.

Yes, because it was empty! His storage ring was gone!

Caden saw his big brother's expression, and an awful feeling arose within, 'But why?' before he could think any further, an intense pain attacked his shoulder.

"ahhhhhhhhhhhhh"

All the cheering stopped with Caden's sudden, painful wailing. But before anyone could figure out what transpired, they heard Rylan's thunderous roar filled with killing intent.

"Juuuuuuustttt WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DAREEEEEEEEESS???!!!"

Unknowingly, Rylan had crushed Caden's shoulder bone in panic. Even if he knew, he wouldn't have cared because his bloodshot eyes were fixed on his index finger.

There was supposed to be a 'blue ring with a beautiful pattern' there, but now it was gone, and only a slight white spot was left. His mind was in utter turmoil, and because of it, he lost control of his endowment and released the entire aura of Quasi Qi Foundation Building cultivation-based.

The pressure was so enormous one could feel it even from a hundred meters away.

Caden was in the eye of the storm and almost lost his life. He couldn't take the pressure and used his cultivation of peak Qi Gates realm and shrilled in pain, "BROTHER YOU!??"

Rylan snapped out of it with Caden's piercing shriek and saw his hand drenched in Caden's blood. He quickly loses his grip, and Caden falls on stage with a painful groan. He was lucky that Rylan didn't use his Qi, or his shoulder might've been torn apart from his body.

"Wh...what happened?!" Caden quickly ate a healing pill, and after his pain decreased, he asked with a worried expression on his pale face.

He had never seen his brother lose his calm like this before, especially in public places. But now he was almost looking like a madman. He seemed like a completely different person.

'It's GONE.' Rylan thought with a hint of horror and panic in his bloodshot eyes.

Yet he forced himself to calm down and control his emotions, but he didn't lower the pressure of his cultivation base.

Everyone on stage was shivering in fear, and the whole venue was deathly silent.

The atmosphere became chilly with Rylan's killing intent at its peak. No one knows what happened, but no one wants to find out because they fear Rylan will kill them in anger, even if they breathe loudly.

"LOCKDOWN! THE ENTIRE AREA!!" Rylan roared.

Those guarding elders felt the pressure on them was gone and quickly followed Rylan's order.

Now, no one can leave without Rylan's permission.

"I want everyone to show me their hands and belongings; they can leave after that!" He blatantly stated.

Everyone became angry, but they didn't dare to disobey. They could tell by his frantic expression that he would kill anyone who didn't cooperate.

"Everyone on stage, show me your hands and anything that can hold things inside!" Rylan started with those on the stage because they were closest to him.

Everyone's expression turned ugly, but they can do nothing. One by one, everyone showed him their hands and their money pouches.

After checking every person, Rylan would always place his hand on their forehead and close his eyes. He was actually sensing the storage ring since that ring was bound to him. He could sense the storage space ring if it were near him.

Rylan was checking everyone when he heard Felix's horrid voice, "Father, my money pouch is gone!"

Everyone in this silence heard Felix's voice. Everyone was startled, and they started to check their money bags.

"Mine is gone too!!"

"My as well! Damn it!!"

"What is happening??? Who dares to steal here?!"

Everyone was shocked by this strange turn of events because only the participants' pouches were stolen, and nobody else.

After seeing her father injured, she completely neglected Ace and almost forgot about him. She didn't know why her Uncle was doing this, but after she heard everyone's alarming cries, she immediately thought of someone.

Gracie even forgot about her father and quickly looked behind, but Ace was nowhere to be seen. Her face became deathly pale, and she started to tremble uncontrollably because a large bag was lying behind her chair. She didn't dare to check that bag because if what she was thinking was true, then she was dead!

Ruben was agitated because his money bag had also gone missing. Suddenly, he noticed Gracie's pale face because he was sitting beside her. He thought her money bag had also been stolen and felt a little better after thinking he wasn't alone.

But when he saw Gracie was looking behind herself, he also looked there confusingly. He only saw a long bag there, and after seeing that bag, he remembered a boy carrying it in the evening, and he was not here anymore.

"Sister Gracie, where is that boy?" Ruben's voice echo in the quiet area like a morning bell.

Everyone's attention, including Rylan, turned towards Gracie and Ruben instantly. Gracie's jolt awakened from Ruben's sudden voice.

Gracie wanted to slaughter Ruben now. 'Did this rascal have to be so loud!!' she cursed him, but now she could do nothing about it.

Everyone was looking at her, and she also suspected that her uncle's rage had something to do with Ace's disappearance. If her Uncle finds out about her schemes, she shivers after thinking about the consequences.

Rylan was a sly fox, no matter how much he was freaking out right now. Gracie's paled expression was not right in his view.

Even Caden, who was currently healing his wound, knew his daughter was hiding something, which was not good in this situation.

Rylan coldly questioned, "RUBEN!! Who is 'that' boy?"
