Bai Zhantang of the Exploding Heavens Faction?
The young cultivators were stunned. Making eye contact, they shook their heads for they had never heard of such a sect before.
The girl in the red robe said with a smile, “Silly boy, don’t you know only those who are from a famous sect can give a self-introduction? Nobody has heard of your Exploding Heavens Faction. So your self-introduction is useless! Moreover, although that guy’s skill was quite poor, he was an experienced thief from the Steal Sect!! I’m afraid some of your properties may have been stolen by him!”
Xu Que looked at these young cultivators with a smile. All of them were well-dressed, which meant they were from rich sects or families. The girl in the red robe was quite beautiful and her skin was very tender. Vitality and cunning could be seen in her face. Apparently, she was a smart girl.
It seemed as if these young cultivators were led by the girl in the red robe. They kept looking at her as if they were checking her expressions and reactions, so that they could say something to please her.
“You haven’t heard of the Exploding Heavens Faction! You are so ignorant and ill-informed! I guess you are just a bunch of frogs sitting in a well called the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm!” Xu Que said, shaking his head mysteriously.
The girl in the red robe was not annoyed by Xu Que’s words. On the contrary, she was interested. “Hah-hah, you are quite interesting! Does it mean you are from another Celestial Realm? Silly boy, only cultivators from the Earth Celestial Stage can travel across the Celestial Realms!”
“Ts, tsk, tsk! That’s why I called you a bunch of frogs! Ordinary cultivators are not able to travel across the Celestial Realms! But it doesn’t mean I can’t do it!” Xu Que continued to bluff as he looked around. It seemed he was no longer interested in these young cultivators and wanted to go somewhere else!
Snigger! “You are really good at bluffing!” The girl in the red robe said with a smile as she waved her little hands, “OK, no more joking! You’d better take back what you’ve lost. You can go with us to ask for your lost properties back!”
“I lost nothing! I even got something from him… Hey, it’s none of your business whether I’ve lost something or not! Why do you want to help me to get my lost properties back?” Xu Que looked at the girl in the red robe suspiciously for nobody would be so kind-hearted nowadays. Also, he didn’t lose anything just now. Xu Que had detected the guy’s attempt to bump into him right away. And Xu Que’s belongings were kept in the System package. How could that guy steal anything from him? Moreover, according to Xu Que’s style, he would definitely respond if anyone tried to steal from him. So he had taken that opportunity to steal the guy’s Storage Rings! However, his movement was not detected by the thief or these young cultivators led by the girl in the red robe.
Xu Que figured his chance to act tough had come. These young cultivators would definitely be shocked when he took out the Storage Rings. However, before he decided how to take out the Storage Rings, the girl in the red robe said, “We mean no harm! Actually, a friend of mine was also stolen by the Steal Sect! So we have kept following the members of the Steal Sect. I didn’t expect that you would also be robbed by them before we found their lair. You are cute and silly, so we decided to take you with us, so that you could get your lost properties back!”
“What? You are going to make trouble…” Puff! “No, you are going to destroy the thieves’ lair, right? Great! I am quite interested! Frankly speaking, I lost something indeed. Let’s go and follow them!” Xu Que said, nodding his head.
He was so bored that he decided to hang around this city. Then, suddenly, someone told him they would take him to make some trouble. How could he miss this opportunity?
“Oh? Don’t you need to check what you have lost?” The girl in the red robe said in surprise. It seemed she was shocked by Xu Que’s quick change in reaction. The rest of the young cultivators also frowned as they looked at Xu Que because they got a feeling that this guy was not going to destroy the thieves’ lair but have fun.
“I know what I’ve lost! Just now I didn’t admit it because I felt embarrassed! OK, ignore these details! Let’s go, or we will miss him!” Xu Que urged them eagerly.
The girl in the red robe agreed. “OK! Let’s just follow him! The Steal Sect is becoming more and more outrageous! I didn’t expect they would have the balls to steal from us!” They started to walk toward the end of the street, following the thief’s aura.
On their way, Xu Que acquired more information about the Steal Sect from the young cultivators. The Steal Sect could be deemed the largest sect in the entire Zhenyuan Celestial Realm. They had a lot of members, who could be found in every inhabitable corner of this continent! However, the Steal Sect had too many members, which increased the difficulty in managing them. Therefore, they set up a branch in each ancient city. The head was responsible for collecting the stolen goods, which could be disposed of through special channels.
Also, the Steal Sect had an unwritten law that they shouldn’t steal from those who had distinguished identities. Therefore, they would only lay hands on the poor to avoid all possible troubles. They seldom stole properties from the rich unless they were paid a large sum to do so. They kept moving their branches throughout different cities. So the girl in the red robe and the rest of the young cultivators had to follow that thief to find their branch, so that they could punish its leader.
After finding out all that information, Xu Que got a feeling that the Steal Sect was quite interesting. Its organization was just like that of the Beggars’ Sect. However, they were not chivalrous at all for they only targeted the poor.
“Our high morality wouldn’t tolerate such a vile sect! We must get rid of it for the people!” Xu Que shouted justly and severely.
The girl in the red robe said, waving her hands, “No, we only need to punish them this time for we have to obey the rules. So don’t do anything stupid, silly boy. Otherwise, I can’t protect you if you make big trouble!”
“What? How could you be so cowardly?” Xu Que tried to dare her to get her to be braver.
The girl in the red robe didn’t buy it at all. She said as she looked at Xu Que with a smile, “Anyway, I won’t do that! If you really provoke the Steal Sect, I’m afraid… Heh, heh, no more talking, the thief has arrived at their branch!” After saying that, she dashed forward with a naughty smile.
Xu Que found they had arrived at a remote alley, which was quiet and full of chilly winds. The young cultivators ignored the gusts of freezing air. Led by the girl in the red robe, they walked with a swagger toward an old house at the end of the alley..
A shabbily dressed old man with white hair was sitting outside the old house. It seemed he was doorkeeper of that house. When the young cultivators arrived outside the door, the old man said calmly, “Young guys, you are going the wrong way!”
“Humph! The Steal Sect always obey your rules. But your members in Baihui City violated your rules by stealing my friend! I won’t leave the matter at that! Ask your leader to see me here! Tell him we are from the Litian Academy!” The girl in the red robe said coldly.
Hearing that, the old man changed his expression as he looked up at the girl in surprise, “Li…Litian Academy?”
The next moment, he stood up instantly and said with a respectful smile, “My dear scholars, I guess there has been a misunderstanding here! The Steal Sect will repay anything you’ve lost ten times over and will make apologies to you!”
“Humph! One of my Storage Rings was stolen! Inside that Storage Ring, there were more than 100 Middle-grade Spiritual Crystals! Can you afford to repay me the Spiritual Crystals ten times over?” A young man beside the girl in the red robe said angrily.
The smile was frozen on the face of the old man. Over 100 Middle-grade Spiritual Crystals meant ten High-grade Spiritual Crystals. If they agreed to repay him for ten times of what he was stolen, they had to offer him over 100 High-grade Spiritual Crystals!
“Eh…please calm down! I will inform our leader and ask him to deal with this issue immediately. I believe he will give you a satisfactory reply!” The old man said with a wry smile.
According to the rules, if a thief stole something inappropriately, the Steal Sect had to repay ten times of what was stolen. This time, the compensation was over 100 High-grade Spiritual Crystals, which couldn’t be decided by a small potato like him but the branch leader!
“Wait! Your member also stole things from another friend of mine!” The girl in the red robe stopped the old man who was walking into the house. Then she turned to Xu Que and said, “OK, tell him what you have lost!”
“Humph!” Xu Que said angrily, imitating the young man who had spoken just now. “Your thief stole more than 9,000 Inferior Celestial Artifacts from me!”
