An impatient voice was heard, followed by a squeak, and the door was opened slightly. A guard popped out his head and said, “The City Governor is welcoming very important guests. We will not be welcoming any more guests for a few days, if you’ve anything…”
Before he had finished speaking, the guard recognized Xu Que. He was stunned, and he exclaimed, “It’s…it’s you. What are you doing here?”
The next moment, the guard was so frightened that he slammed the door shut. His exclamation resonated throughout the City Governor’s Mansion. “Bad news, that fellow who injured the Young City Governor has found his way here!”
D*mn it. What an arrogant guard! He denied me entrance? Xu Que raised his eyebrows, his face full of displeasure.
He condensed a Mystical Fire in his palm and blasted opened the door. Then he stepped into the City Governor’s Mansion with vigorous strides! Many guards in the mansion were alarmed and rushed out one after another. They stood in a row, staring at Xu Que with great vigilance and seriousness, but no one dared to approach him.
Since Xu Que had made a name for himself in just one battle, the news had spread widely throughout all corners of the city. But nobody expected that Xu Que would come to his house to find Ling Feng!
“Stop!” Just then, a familiar voice echoed out. Ling Feng was pale, with a trace of anger on his face. He came out from behind the guards.
“Bai fellow, what’s this supposed to mean?” Ling Feng looked at Xu Que as he asked.
“No special meaning. Didn’t we make a promise? If you lose, you’ll apologize and make amends and let me have free access to the City Governor’s Mansion. Are you going to break your promise?” Xu Que asked.
Ling Feng was at a loss for words.He had made that promise in public and now that Xu Que had come to his mansion to seek him out, he was perfectly justified!
After a moment of hesitation, Ling Feng finally said, “Okay, I apologize for what happened before. I’m sorry!”
“Sorry? If sorry was useful, then what are the police for?” Xu Que responded.
“Police? What are you talking about?” Ling Feng was confused.
“Uh, sorry, it was a slip of the tongue! Okay, now that you have apologized, that’s a wrap. But now I’m going to come inside your City Governor’s Mansion. I suppose there’s no problem with that, right?” Xu Que smiled.
“Sure, but Bai fellow has just arrived and is certainly not familiar with our City Governor’s Mansion. I’d better send a few people to lead the way for you!” Ling Feng agreed immediately, and he didn’t wait for Xu Que’s reply as he signaled for several guards behind him to lead the way for Xu Que.
Instead of showing the way for Xu Que to visit the City Governor’s Mansion, in fact, it was to keep a watch over Xu Que—to prevent him from creating chaos in the City Governor’s Mansion.
“The Young City Governor is really courteous!” Xu Que smiled and didn’t refuse this arrangement. If he could really be controlled by just a few guards, then he wasn’t Xu Que!
“All right, all of you can get back to business! Don’t alarm my father about such trivial matters!” Ling Feng ordered the servants.
In fact, he tolerated Xu Que because he didn’t want to bother his father. After all, many distinguished guests had come to the City Governor’s Mansion recently, and they were discussing the events surrounding the Equipment Refining Convention. If the incident of his creating trouble and losing a battle were known, not only himself, but also his father would be disgraced!
Although Ling Feng was a bossy bully, he wasn’t ignorant and knew the priorities. Hence, he sucked it up and handled it in the most appropriate way! However, that proper way of dealing with a problem became inappropriate when it was used on Xu Que.
Xu Que was led away by several guards, and, in less than an hour, several guards rushed back and reported to Ling Feng with fear on their faces, “Young…Young City Governor, bad news, that dude has disappeared!”
“Disappeared? How could a human disappear under your surveillance?” Ling Feng angrily reprimanded.
“We…we have no idea. He said he wanted to go to the bathroom after a short tour. We took him to the toilet and waited for him at the door. He didn’t come out after a long wait. Then we realized something was amiss.” A guard was looking bitter as he explained himself.
Who could have imagined that a person could suddenly vanish into thin air when he was going to the bathroom?
“Did you look in the bathroom?” Ling Feng asked.
“Looked…we took several looks at it, he was not inside!” Several guards awkwardly replied. At the mention of it, they couldn’t help but think of the smell in the toilet and they felt nauseous once again!
“Instruct everyone, let them search the City Governor’s Mansion immediately. Remember, don’t alarm my father and the distinguished guests!” Ling Feng ordered. He joined the team looking for Xu Que.
Meanwhile, Xu Que had been wandering alone in the City Governor’s Mansion. He easily got rid of the guards with a little trick. But his trip to the City Governor’s Mansion wasn’t just for a little stroll—his real intention was to get the treasures inside the City Governor’s Mansion.
In order to rapidly improve his strength, he needed all kinds of elixirs—plants or metals with special effects used to enhance power or prolong life and treat pain. It would be good to have some Celestial Artifacts of higher grades too.
Baihui City was huge, so the City Governor’s Mansion must be relatively rich.Thus, in keeping with Xu Que’s style, he had to seize the chance and steal some good stuff.
This place is rich with Spiritual Qi. There must be some big treasures here! Xu Que stopped in front of a tower, his eyes glistening. The tower was saturated with Spiritual Qi. It was overflowing out of the tower because it was too intense. Who could believe that there were no treasures there?
Heh, heh, although there are a few spells, they can’t stop me. Xu Que went to the front of the tower and directly called out the System to break the spell. Because there were so many spells there, Xu Que used up 50,000 Acting Tough Points, but he wasn’t worried that he would suffer any losses. According to the intensity of the Spiritual Qi, he believed that the treasures there would definitely exceed 50,000 Acting Tough Points!
Ding! “The System has successfully opened the spell for Xu Que. As the spell has the ability to recover, please enter the place as soon as possible!” The System prompted.
At the same time, outside the tower, the spell was opened, and an entrance was exposed. Xu Que didn’t hesitate. He stepped into it immediately and, following a whoosh, vanished. After a few seconds, the tower slowly returned to its original state, and everything quieted down.
At the same time, in the City Governor’s Mansion’s backyard was the Grand Assembly Hall. Dozens of influential aces with eminent status and profound Cultivation Stages from all walks of life in the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm were sitting in the hall.
Ling Huang, as the head of the city, sat respectfully on the side throughout the meeting, communicating with many influential aces.
“We, the Equipment Refining Sect, have scheduled the Equipment Refining Convention in Baihui City. On one hand, Baihui City is in the center of the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm, which facilitates the participation of Equipment Refining Masters from all over the Celestial Realm. On the other hand, it is also because the Spiritual Qi here is strong enough to support the needs of the Equipment Refining Tower. City Governor, I thank you for your cooperation at this time.” An Elder spoke slowly as he shifted his gaze to Ling Huang.
Ling Huang immediately responded, “Elder Li, you’re welcome. It’s my privilege to hold an Equipment Refining Convention in Baihui City organized by the Equipment Refining Sect!”
“The City Governor is too polite. The Equipment Refining Convention will soon be launched. We hope that the City Governor will clear a place in Baihui City for the installation of the Equipment Refining Tower. Otherwise, if we keep the Equipment Refining Tower in your mansion throughout the convention, I’m afraid it will affect the Spiritual Links of your mansion.”
“Elder Li, you can rest assured that we have selected the most suitable venue for the Equipment Refining Convention. It is going to be right next to the Life and Death Ring in the center of Baihui City. And we can transfer the Equipment Refining Tower today.” Ling Huang replied with a salute.
The Elder nodded his head satisfactorily. “Well, yes, the City Governor is indeed very efficient. However, we also need to be cautious about the transfer of the Equipment Refining Tower. Although we have laid out several spells, there are many precious materials for Equipment Refining hidden in the tower. At the same time, the Convention will also affect the rankings of the Heavenly Tripod List. We must ensure that everything is safe and sound. Hence, the transfer of the Equipment Refining Tower is expected to be completed with everyone’s efforts. I hope that everyone here could help too.”
Those seated immediately echoed, “Elder Li, you can rest assured that we will do our best to guard the Equipment Refining Tower and ensure that the Equipment Refining Convention will run as scheduled!”
