At that moment, the three King Refiners of the Inferior Artifact were shuddering! It was as plain as the nose on someone’s face, they had already recognized and figured out who that middle-aged Confucian was. They recalled their past when the three of them were nobodies in the Equipment Refining Sect. There were so many others like them. But thousands of years had passed and the three of them had matured into King Refiners of the Inferior Artifact. Moreover, they had a respectable status in the Equipment Refining Sect.
But with the middle-aged Confucian in white before their eyes, they were terribly frightened. With a thud, they knelt down then and there. That wasn’t out of fear, but out of respect and reverence. When they were young, the middle-aged Confucian in white was already the Sect Leader of the Equipment Refining Sect, and now he was at the peak of the Golden Celestial Stage. His Cultivation Stage was akin to the rulers of the Six Major Celestial Realms. How could one not feel respect and reverence for him?
“Paying my respects to Sect Leader Mo!” The three King Refiners of the Inferior Artifact were shivering. They could see that the relationship between Xu Que and his group with Mo Junchen was no trivial matter. First, Mo Junchen had come out together with Xu Que and the rest. In addition, the arrogant tone of Buttface earlier when he addressed Mo Junchen as Elder or Younger Brother was telling. If Xu Que complained to Mo Junchen, the three of them would certainly land themselves in serious trouble, and no one could protect them.
Everyone was confused and realized that something was amiss. Everyone who joined the Equipment Refining Sect had to memorize the rules of the Equipment Refining Sect. In addition, they had to understand the history and development of the Equipment Refining Sect. Everyone knew the great achievements and contributions of the various Sect Leaders of the Equipment Refining Sect. Mo Junchen was the most legendary one among the Sect Leaders. It was also because he was the only one who had mysteriously disappeared that such a deep impression had been made on them. Now, the three King Refiners of the Inferior Artifact suddenly knelt down and addressed him as Sect Leader Mo. Many cultivators immediately associated him with Sect Leader of the Equipment Refining Sect, Mo Junchen, who had been missing for thousands of years.
As swift as thought, all the cultivators from the Equipment Refining Sect knelt on the ground and shouted in unison, “Paying my respects to Sect Leader Mo!”
“Humph, it seems that some of you still remember me. How dare you violate our ancestors’ preaching as I emphasized then? Did you all really think that I was dead and unable to lecture any of you?” Mo Junchen’s voice wasn’t very loud, it was as elegant as his appearance, but his tone was pressurizing and even suffocating.
“Sect Leader Mo, please forgive our sins, I…the three of us are just following orders! ”
“The Exploding Heavens Faction and the Equipment Refining Sect from the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm resented each other. King Equipment Refiner Liu was seriously injured and fled back to our side to recuperate. It was only a few days ago that we heard that those from the Exploding Heavens Faction were coming over, so King Equipment Refiner Liu sent us out immediately to arrest those from the Exploding Heavens Faction!”
“Yes, Sect Leader Mo, please make a fair judgment. The three of us have done nothing sinful. We were simply taking orders!” The three King Refiners of the Inferior Artifact put on long faces as they explained helplessly. Although the three of them followed instructions from King Equipment Refiner Liu, they were also eager to render an outstanding service to please King Equipment Refiner Liu, so they were somewhat more guilty than they were telling.
Mo Junchen naturally figured out a lot of things from the expressions of the three men, and he snorted and didn’t speak. On the contrary, Buttface was a little anxious. Previously, it was mentioned that if the three men hadn’t done anything sinful, he would stand upside down and sh*t. If they really hadn’t done anything sinful, then he had not only failed at Acting Tough but it would harm himself!
“No, no, no, they must have done something sinful. Teacher Duan, you should tell their fortune by using the Eight Trigrams now!” Buttface immediately pulled Duan Jiude over and asked him to tell their fortunes. As long as they had done something terrible, it would become part of their fate. You reap what you sow, and there would be karma and reincarnation. Heaven would know everything that they had done and it could be discovered by telling their fortune with the Eight Trigrams!
“Good, let the old man do it!” Duan Jiude wanted to find an opportunity to kill the three men out of revenge. He immediately agreed to the request of Buttface. He took out a turtle shell! However, when he took out the turtle shell and calculated carefully, his expression turned odd.
“How is it, Teacher Duan?” Buttface immediately inquired. Duan Jiude shook his head and said, “You don’t say, the three men have really done nothing terrible!”
“D*mn it!” Buttface was dumbfounded.
“They definitely have done various sorts of evil deeds, but, in fact, it’s hard to distinguish the good from the bad. In short, they simply haven’t done anything offensive and beyond terrible!” Duan Jiude added. Sometimes it was difficult to distinguish between a person’s bad or good act. He believed that the three King Refiners of the Inferior Artifact must have done some bad things, but those matters couldn’t be reckoned as terrible. After all, the karma and reincarnation involved weren’t that significant. Only those evil deeds that had went beyond the threshold of immorality could be easily calculated. Now that they couldn’t calculate them, it could only be said that the three King Refiners of the Inferior Artifact had never done anything against morality.
Mo Junchen’s expression eased up a lot. Although he wanted to get rid of the corrupt, he didn’t want to do it blindly. Moreover, even if he had to settle accounts, he had to find the person responsible. He wasn’t going to find fault with those who were simply following orders. If he really did that, the effect wouldn’t be great, and it would even cause others to be disappointed.
“Younger Brother Xu, what do you say?” Finally, Mo Junchen turned to Xu Que. He had promised Xu Que to give him a satisfactory answer, so now he wanted to know Xu Que’s attitude. If Xu Que really wanted the three men dead, then he would keep his promise. After all, the three men weren’t completely innocent! Everyone who was present heard him, and their eyelids twitched abruptly. Younger Brother Xu? Oh, my god, Sect Leader Mo is actually addressing the Faction Leader of the Exploding Heavens Faction as brother!
“Heh, forget it. I’m not the kind of person who always seeks revenge for the smallest grievance or is excessively mean to anyone. Just teach them a lesson and let them go. After all, they’re not the masterminds!” Just then, Xu Que smiled and waved his hand. In fact, he was grateful to them. If it wasn’t for them, he wouldn’t have entered the God of Hell’s Realm, and he wouldn’t have received the inheritance of skills from Hades! His current Mighty Body had played an extremely important role for him. It gave him the assurance and confidence to fight his way up to the Heaven Continent!
“All right, since Younger Brother Xu agrees, the three of them will be at the disposal of the Exploding Heavens Faction!” When Mo Junchen heard him, he smiled a little. He could see that Xu Que was letting them go because of him, so in return, he had to return his favor. Anyway, Xu Que had promised not to kill the three men. Hence, if he handed them over to the Exploding Heavens Faction, at most, they would just be punished.
“Good, you can leave this to Your Holiness. All of you probably don’t know that Your Holiness is responsible for punishment in the Exploding Heavens Faction!” Just then, Buttface’s eyes lit up, he jumped out and shouted. Duan Jiude was also excited, “Me too, the old man here is also responsible for punishment. I’m the Elder of the Exploding Heavens Faction in charge of penalty and punishment!”
“Don’t stir the pot, you two! Just punish them in the easiest way. Don’t go overboard!” Xu Que reminded them. But he was actually handing the three men over to Buttface and Duan Jiude. Duan Jiude immediately laughed and said, “Rest assured, we know our limits. And we’ll go easy on them because of Sect Leader Mo. Anyway, the three men haven’t done anything terrible, so we should just castrate them as punishment!”
When the three King Refiners of the Inferior Artifact heard the first half of the reply, they were relieved. But when they heard the second half of the reply, they were about to spit blood. Castration as punishment? D*mn it, do they need to be so vicious? Although at their level of capability, some of the physical destruction could be restored—broken hands and feet could be restored and even castration could also be restored. But the problem was that the pain was terrible! They didn’t know how exactly painful it was during castration, but they knew that it must be torture!
“…” Mo Junchen raised his eyebrows and there was a slight twitch at the corners of his lips. He was hearing about such punishment for the first time. It was a bit shameless!
“Forget it, just as you say!” At last, Mo Junchen nodded and agreed. Although the punishment was shameless, the actual impact on them wasn’t great. Anyway, it could be restored, so it was all right for the three King Refiners of the Inferior Artifact to learn the hard way! The three King Refiners of the Inferior Artifact heard him and their faces turned ashen. One of them looked at Buttface and Duan Jiude and said weakly, “Both of you, please choose a sharp knife!”
“What nonsense are you talking about? We’re not a fan of the knife!” Duan Jiude stared at him. Not using a knife? Then what are they using? The three King Refiners of the Inferior Artifact were startled and confused. Just then, Buttface added calmly, “The Exploding Heavens Faction likes to use a hammer!”
