“What?” Elder Li exclaimed.
The dignified deacon of the Equipment Refining Sect, who had high prestige and status, felt that he was about to faint and vomit blood.
There was an incredible uproar from the huge crowd. It was difficult to believe such a situation had happened.
“Oh my god!”
“He’s…he’s so wild! He even stole the Smithing Tables?”
“What the hell, what an immoral thief! He’s too crazy!”
“The fellow is bold to steal from the Equipment Refining Sect. This time, I’m afraid he’ll be hunted down by the Earth Continent!”
“Originally, I thought that the Steal Sect was the most morally corrupt group in the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm, but I didn’t expect that there was an even more corrupt being. In terms of destructive power, I’m afraid that fellow can surpass the whole of the Steal Sect!”
“Of course, the Steal Sect isn’t bold enough to steal from the Equipment Refining Sect!”
“Now, it seems that this Equipment Refining Convention is bound to fail. The Smithing Tables aren’t the greatest problem. He’s taken the many precious materials for Equipment Refining. They can’t gather everything again that quickly!”
Many people were shaking their heads, a promising Equipment Refining Convention that hadn’t started yet was bound to fail. Even if it continued to be held, it would take at least 10 days to gather all the necessary materials!
“Check, give it a thorough check. Even if we have to uproot the whole of the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm, we have to catch the little thief! Also, order the arrest of all members of the Exploding Heavens Faction. Kill anyone you see!”
In the end, Elder Li of the Equipment Refining Sect issued a command in extreme animosity and annoyance. The order was equivalent to banning and killing the Exploding Heavens Faction.
But they didn’t know that, in the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm, even in the whole World of Near Celestials, there was only Xu Que who would blatantly introduce himself as part of the Exploding Heavens Faction—of course, with the exception of Buttface and Duan Jiude!
At the same time, among the crowd, Feng Lanwu and Xiao Ru were both flabbergasted. They were having a hard time trying to calm down. They had never imagined that Xu Que would appear in such a way, swaggering out of the Equipment Refining Tower, having stolen all the refinery materials for the Equipment Refining Convention. He even stole all the Smithing Tables. And then he even fled openly and in front of so many aces. He was really one of a kind!
“Second…Second Miss, that fellow…” Just then Xiao Ru looked at Feng Lanwu and wanted to say something.
Suddenly, Feng Lanwu’s expression changed, she covered Xiao Ru’s mouth tightly, and with a solemn face she warned, “Shhh! Xiao Ru, remember, don’t ever mention to anyone that we know that fellow, otherwise the Wind Chamber of Commerce and we will not live longer than today!”
“Yes!” Xiao Ru also realized the seriousness of the situation and nodded earnestly.
Xu Que had already fled thousands of miles away from Baihui City.
When he was sure that no one was following him, he stopped in the shade. He exchanged a Celestial Grade Disguise Puppet from the System store to transform his appearance and presence. The Celestial Grade Disguise Puppet was enough to hide himself in front of an ace of the Heaven Celestial Stage and below; he wouldn’t be detected.
The reason why he was so cautious was because when he stepped out of the Equipment Refining Tower, he clearly sensed that there were hundreds of cultivators in the Medium Stage of the Earth Celestial Stage, and even more than a dozen of those in the peak of the Earth Celestial Stage, as well as a potential master in the Heaven Celestial Stage.
It was obviously a dangerous thing to be a target of such a grand scene, so even if the price of the Celestial Grade Disguise Puppet was 50,000 Acting Tough Points, Xu Que didn’t hesitate to use it.
At this moment, he had become a graceful young man in white clothes, gentle and elegant. At first glance he looked like a disciple from a decent sect, knowledgeable, highly cultured, gifted, and from a good family background.
“Heh, heh, it won’t be easy to catch me now!”
Xu Que smiled, and he looked back at Baihui City which was far away in the distance. Then he headed back to the city.
When he returned to Baihui City, he found that they were prohibiting anyone from leaving the city. They had even activated a sealing spell Array. But they didn’t prevent new cultivators from entering the city. Hence, Xu Que went into the city smoothly and got an identity card with the word white.
The guard, who issued the identity card, informed him that, “There was a terrible theft in the city, and the new cultivators who enter the city will be the first to get the identity card after our checks. You’ve to take care of this. The identity card has been tied to your presence, which means that you’ve not a suspect. This is to show your innocence and to avoid your being checked in the city by others.”
Hiss! Xu Que gasped. “In broad daylight, there are still people who steal? It’s really terrible. You can rest assured that if I see that man, I’ll teach him a good lesson!”
“Ha, ha, this fellow cultivator is so righteous. You’re really a young role model of the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm. If everyone could be like you, there wouldn’t be so many unrestrained and evil thieves!” The guard laughed and was very fond of Xu Que.
On one hand, Xu Que’s present attire and temperament were full of righteousness. On the other hand, it was also his conversation. Combining the two, anyone would have a good impression of him. Eventually, Xu Que was kindly sent off by several guards, and he happily took the identity card and returned to Baihui City.
The city wasn’t at peace. From the time when Xu Que fled till he returned, it was only an hour, and the Equipment Refining Sect had launched swift and decisive measures. Sealing the city and issuing identity cards were the most basic. The most serious issue was that the cultivators of Baihui City had to be checked. Only those who were innocent could receive the identity card, otherwise they would be listed as suspects and face a more stringent check.
However, it was precisely because of such chaos that the Equipment Refining Sect had accidentally discovered a few people from the Demonic Sects who were going to create trouble during the Equipment Refining Convention. They had inadvertently destroyed the plans of the Demonic Sects. The search lasted for seven days, and Xu Que wandered around seven days in the city, safe and sound.
Initially, he wanted to find a chance to take a look at the Equipment Refining Tower again, but the place was guarded by dozens of powerful aces of the Earth Celestial Stage. No one could get close to it. Xu Que wanted to take a walk in the City Governor’s Mansion, but he didn’t expect that there were even more powerful aces in the City Governor’s Mansion.
Anyway, now he would just create trouble whenever he could. He was going to completely unleash his true nature and play without a care in the world. It was to make a name for himself in the world and receive a high ranking in the Heavenly Tripod List.
One day, Xu Que was drinking tea in an inn and the conversation of the few cultivators at the next table attracted his attention.
“Who would have expected that! A dude in the Medium Stage of the Half-Celestial Stage could have done such a big thing!”
“This time he’s really famous. It’s said that the Equipment Refining Sect has now spread the news to capture him and anyone in the Exploding Heavens Faction in the whole of the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm.”
“Tut, tut, tut, but then again, this Equipment Refining Convention can be reorganized fast. The strength of the Equipment Refining Sect is quite amazing!”
“Yes, I thought it would take at least ten days to recover. I didn’t expect that in seven days, they would be able to hold the Equipment Refining Convention again!”
“In fact, it’s quite normal. Every member of the Equipment Refining Sect is at least an Equipment Forging Grandmaster. They’re also talented geniuses, and their backgrounds aren’t simple. This time,in order to redeem their prestige, some members and Elders have paid out of their own pockets to provide a new batch of refinery materials!”
“I heard that the registration of the Equipment Refining Convention is today, and once you have registered, you can enter the competition immediately. It’ll last for ten days. The top 500 people can get places to enter the Waste Realm.”
“Isn’t it the top 300? When did it change to the top 500?”
“Ha, ha, it’s because of the Exploding Heavens Faction’s Bai Zhantang. The Equipment Refining Sect felt that it made them lose their prestige. Hence, in order to salvage the situation, they increased 200 more places, and any disbanded cultivators can register for the competition!”
“D*mn it, that means the number of applicants would double? I’m afraid it’s more difficult to enter the top 500 than the previous top 300!”
“So now a lot of the disbanded cultivators are thankful to the fellow from the Exploding Heavens Faction. But all the big and small forces hate that fellow and are trying to catch him. They said that if they caught him, they would beat him up first and then hand him over to the Equipment Refining Sect!”
Hearing that, Xu Que stood up with a fierce slam on the table and his face was full of fury. Everyone’s attention in the inn was instantly on Xu Que.
Xu Que thought of an idea and he shouted, “Good! Good job! This move from the Equipment Refining Sect is going to eliminate the ill will in the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm. Ha, ha, I’ve said enough, and I better hurry and register for the Equipment Refining Convention. I’ll use my practical action to support the Equipment Refining Sect!”
After that, to the confused gaze of the crowd, Xu Que strode away to the center of Baihui City!
