“Oh?” Xu Que heard her and stopped abruptly! He wasn’t interested in the safe place the woman mentioned, but he was perplexed as to why the woman would want to collaborate with him! After all, based on his interactions with Wang Qiannian and the group, no one would bother to interact with him because he was only in the Half-Celestial Stage. Wang Qiannian gave up battling with him because he was too lazy. Why was it that this woman came over specially to initiate collaboration with him?
There was no such thing as a free lunch; Xu Que didn’t believe in such a good deal!
“Fellow cultivator, to tell you the truth, I have no other choice. Therefore, I wanted to try my last chance with you!” The woman lowered her head and looked dejected.
“You have no other choice? Then all the more you shouldn’t be looking for me. Do you think someone who’s in the Half-Celestial Stage would be stronger than others?” Xu Que laughed as if he had seen through her tricks.
That woman was aware of Xu Que’s suspicions; she shook her head and replied, “It is just my intuition. You’re brave enough to come to the eastern suburbs alone. Maybe you didn’t know how dangerous this place is, but now you can see that it’s a remote area where few people live…no, I should say that there’s nobody over here at all. You should have guessed that this place isn’t simple, but you chose to continue, which suggests that you’ve extraordinary strength!”
“Don’t say that. Maybe I’m just silly. I have blind confidence in myself!” Xu Que laughed.
The woman shook her head instantly. “It doesn’t matter. My brother is running out of time. If he doesn’t receive help, he’ll die. Fellow cultivator, we must work together. Let’s work together to mine for the Vital Rice. If we’re successful, I only need 12 Vital Rice to lengthen his life for a year! The rest of the Vital Rice is yours!”
“Sounds good, so tell me how many Vital Rice there are in that place you mentioned, and how many more would be left after giving your brother 12 Vital Rice. By the way, what do I need to do if I cooperate with you?” Xu Que nodded, pretended to agree and asked for the details.
That woman blushed at once. “That place…there are about 20 Vital Rice, so you could have about eight! Fellow cultivator, I know that this number may be very small for you, but the place is really safe, without any risk. Although I am in the Initial Stage of the Human Celestial Stage, if I excavate that area, I can no longer deal with all the Vital Ants, so you only have to block off those Vital Ants for an hour, I’ll steal the Vital Rice, then we’ll leave straight away!”
Xu Que listened and was instantly amused.
That woman looked really anxious. If Xu Que was an ordinary person, he would probably believe her. But who was Xu Que? His tricks were much more complicated than anyone else. How could he believe in that woman so easily?
A Vital Ants’ nest with only 20 Vital Rice? That’s impossible!
The key was he had to fight off those Vital Ants for an hour; the duration was a tad too long!
“Fellow cultivator, what do you say?” Just then, the woman looked at Xu Que and asked anxiously.
Xu Que smiled coolly, but didn’t answer. Instead, he asked, “Tell me. Why did you find me? Was it just because I’m extraordinary?”
That woman was startled, and a bitter smile flashed across her face. She shook her head lightly, “Not because of that! But at least…your cultivation stage is lower than mine so I don’t need to worry that you’ll pocket all the Vital Rice. And in the public square, I saw your discussion with Wang Qiannian about the women on the street. From your expression, I believe you can be trusted. In this place, you’re the only one I dare to collaborate with!”
After her explanation, Xu Que was speechless! The rationales of her seeking him as a partner were because his cultivation stage was lower than hers and he had a bit of honesty!
D*mn it! He thought it was because of his handsomeness that she wanted to take the opportunity to get acquainted with him. To his dismay, her rationales were really disappointing!
Xu Que shook his head, “Miss, our collaboration can be discussed in the future, but I’ve got to dig out the nest of Vital Ants in this mountain first.”
Xu Que turned about and headed up the mountain.
That woman exclaimed, “Fellow cultivator, no! This mountain has a Queen Ant, its nest must be huge and robust, it’s impossible for you to dig openly. You’ll only startle them. And we’ll be in great trouble; we’ll die here!”
“Don’t worry. The Exploding Heavens Faction has always been fearless. As I told you just now, I’m not fearful of any of those Queen Ants!” Xu Que smiled and continued to walk up the mountainside!
The woman was completely pale, with despair in her eyes. She had been really driven into the corner before she decided to seek Xu Que’s cooperation. Who knew that he would be so stubborn. He already knew that the mountain was dangerous, and he still wanted to try. His attempt was too lethal. Once the Queen Ant was alarmed, she could escape all by herself, but Xu Que would probably just die there. If that happened, she would have a hard time finding a new partner.
But in that abandoned place, was there anyone she could collaborate with? No, there was no one! She was afraid to find the wrong person who might steal all of the Vital Rice. Then she would lose her last chance!
“Forget it! It’s better to fight and save him than to cooperate with others!” Finally, the woman gritted her teeth and decided to give it a try. She had devised a good plan; now it was obvious that she couldn’t stop Xu Que, so if Xu Que alarmed the Queen Ant, she would rescue him and they could escape together. Xu Que would owe her a favor and,if they were to cooperate again, he wouldn’t have the ungrateful thought of pocketing all of the Vital Rice!
Just then, Xu Que stopped on the mountainside; his eyes gathered strong Spiritual Qi as he looked attentively at the ground. According to the Cave-positioning Technique of the dragon-hunting formula, he was sure that his location was the location with the best feng shui in the whole mountain range. The probability of the existence of a Vital Ant’s nest was extremely high.
However, the woman was startled when Xu Que stopped advancing. She thought that he had thought it through and was afraid to move on. After all, the excavation of the Vital Ant’s nest usually began from the top of the mountain. They usually began at a location where there was abundant Spiritual Qi, everything then depended on their luck.
But Xu Que’s present position wasn’t the location with the most abundant Spiritual Qi. In addition, he stood there without moving, so she thought Xu Que was contemplating whether he should go up the mountain or not.
Right away, she opened her mouth and shouted, “Fellow cultivator, listen to me…”
“Here it is!”Before she finished, Xu Que suddenly shouted, raised the Luo Yang shovel in his hand, and plunged it into the ground on the left! Following which, he skillfully maneuvered the Luo Yang shovel, digging deeper and deeper into the ground!
A moment ago when he stood there motionlessly it was because he was calculating the terrain of that location. With the use of his dragon-hunting formula, according to the practice of a tomb-raider, he found a most secure and easy location to enter; it was obvious that he had succeeded! With the Luo Yang shovel continuously going deeper into the ground, the woman watching from below was befuddled. She had never seen such a shovel nor had she seen an excavation like that. She was totally confused and couldn’t understand it at all! But she knew that the Luo Yang shovel that Xu Que used was extraordinary.
That shovel looked strange, but the material was made from pure metal material. It was definitely made by the hands of an Equipment Forging Grandmaster. She even felt that the material was good enough to refine an Inferior Celestial Artifact!
But in fact, Xu Que’s Luo Yang shovel was exchanged from the System. He had spent a whole 200,000 Acting Tough Points to get that! He knew the land in this area was very firm and sturdy, and with Wang Qiannian’s description of the nest, Xu Que knew that he shouldn’t save on his Acting Tough Points. Thus he burned a hole in his pocket to get that Luo Yang shovel.
Once the excavation was successful, he believed that he could absolutely earn back the 200,000 Acting Tough Points!
Finally, when the Luo Yang shovel was deep inside the ground, Xu Que suddenly drew out the Luo Yang shovel. The whole of Luo Yang shovel came up and there was a whole pile of soil coming out with it!
Then many drops of black liquid were dripping from the tip of the shovel. There was a large black mass mixed with soil. Xu Que was startled and he squinted at it.
“That…that’s the head of a Vital Ant?” Suddenly, the woman at the foot of the mountain exclaimed; her face was full of surprise and disbelief. That was Xu Que’s first excavation and he actually found the nest of the Vital Ants. The point was that dude could go through the nest and chop off the head of a Vital Ant. If that was made known to the public, it would be…simply appalling!
Suddenly, the whole mountaintop shook and gave out a loud noise. The next moment, the mountain range trembled. It was as if a gigantic creature was moving underneath and moving the whole mountain. The location where Xu Que was standing was covered with innumerable fissures! The sturdy mountain was breaking down in that moment, and an imposing pressure and murderous aura were pouring out from the ground and permeating the air.
“Oh no, the Queen Ant is alerted!” The expression on the woman’s face darkened and she shouted at Xu Que, “Fellow cultivator, come back now, quick…”
Before she could finish, Xu Que suddenly kept his Luo Yang shovel, threw down something n a hurry, stepped on two flaming metal wheels, bolted out of the mountain and, in a blink of an eye, he had fled hundreds of miles away.
At that moment, the woman was the only one facing the dangerous situation! She was dumbfounded!
That dude…ran away after he alarmed the Queen Ant?
The point was that he ran away with the help of a low-grade Celestial Artifact?
