“From your tone, the circumstances sound quite grim!” Although the man’s voice was quite cold, his words carried a trace of interest.
The middle-aged cultivator was speechless. The circumstances on the outside couldn’t just be described as ‘grim’! It seemed this old eccentric had secluded himself for who knows how many years. How else could he be ignorant of the disastrous event that took place twenty years ago?
