“Hah, hah, you fools, what are you thinking? This Purple Sky Age Metal was brought here by brother Que…ahem, brother Que’s father! Now, he is trying to reforge it. How dare you cast greedy eyes on it?” Buttface shouted with a sarcastic smile. He really wanted to know how Xu Que was going to deal with these people who were being so annoying?
However, no one believed what Buttface had said. They didn’t believe a man could have so much Purple Sky Age Metal. It seemed impossible even for a Celestial King. According to the records in the ancient books, it was quite difficult even for the deities to obtain this material easily. The deities would fight over a piece of Purple Sky Age Metal that was only as large as a thumb. Now, seeing so much Purple Sky Age Metal in front of them, it was impossible for them to believe that all this material had been brought here by Xu Que!
“Hey, wait! I sense something familiar, which must have come from Elder Xu, in the aura of the Purple Sky Age Metal…” Someone shouted as he looked at Xu Que in surprise. Faintly, many people also sensed Xu Que’s aura in the Purple Sky Age Metal, which meant this material had been carried by Xu Que for a long time. Otherwise, his aura wouldn’t be sensed in the Purple Sky Age Metal.
“No way! Was this precious material brought here by Elder Xu then?” Someone asked in surprise. Most of the people kept silent and even pretended that they didn’t hear this conversation. All of them kept looking at that lump of Purple Sky Age Metal with greedy eyes. Apparently, they didn’t want to give up easily. They were trying to find an opportunity or excuse to steal the material. The Purple Sky Age Metal was precious enough for them to take the risk of offending a Celestial King because they believed the risk-reward ratio was quite good.
“Faction Leader…Faction Leader’s father, sorry, I can’t stand it anymore. The divine fire has gotten so crazy now…” Mo Junchen shouted at Xu Que at this moment. He had almost reached his limit. He had been quite confident in the very beginning, but he didn’t expect that the divine fire would go crazy. It seemed something had irritated the divine fire, and it became extremely violent suddenly. Now, Mo Junchen had almost lost control of the heat and temperature.
“Guardian Mo, you can come back now. The quenching of the material is already pretty well done!” Xu Que replied. He believed the Purple Sky Age Metal was perfectly quenched, although he knew it could still be further improved, because the precious Purple Sky Age Metal was full of potential. Even if the quenching performed now was not perfect, the material could still be repaired in the future.
“Faction Leader’s father, I really want to come back to you. But I can’t stop the quenching now! The divine fire has become more and more violent. If I stop the quenching forcibly, the Purple Sky Age Metal will be devoured by the divine fire!” Mo Junchen said with embarrassment. He had done his best but he hadn’t planned for the divine fire to go crazy suddenly. Even though he was a King Refiner, he was still taken by surprise. It was the first time he had ever felt helpless when he was forging equipment. Now, Mo Junchen was doing his best to prevent the divine fire from ruining the Purple Sky Age Metal. But he would have no more energy to reforge the material. That was the reason he asked for help from Xu Que.
Xu Que asked, nodding his head, “Guardian Mo, how can I help you?”
“I hope you can give me some advice. We can melt the Purple Sky Age Metal into an item. In this way, we can have a Middle-grade Celestial Artifact. In the future, we could still quench the Purple Sky Age Metal if we get an opportunity. Or, we can find other King Refiners among people in this area who could help me to stop the quenching forcibly, so that we could avoid the Purple Sky Age Metal from being ruined. We can still store the Purple Sky Age Metal in liquid form. In the future, we could find an opportunity to reforge it!” Mo Junchen said at this time.
Hearing that, Xu Que turned to the rest of the people in this area. He saw the Jade Lake from the Tianxiang Celestial Realm, Dishou Mountain from the Tianxiang Celestial Realm, Dark Shadow Pagoda from the Qisha Celestial Realm, and Zhouwang Palace from the Tianxiang Celestial Realm. “Could a King Refiner be found among these people?” Xu Que shook his head and didn’t ask, because he saw the answer from their expressions. They had come here to find fortune and opportunities–they had not brought King Refiners with them.
“Elder Xu, I suggest all of us should work together! In this way, we might be able to save some Purple Sky Age Metal!” Bai Cailing said at this time.
“A child shall not interrupt the grown-ups’ conversation!” Xu Que waved his hand haughtily. “Are you kidding me? I have brought this Purple Sky Age Metal here. And you are saying we can only save part of it? I will suffer a great loss if I follow your advice!” was running through Xu Que’s mind.
“Eh…” Bai Cailing was totally embarrassed by Xu Que’s words. The Holy Virgin of the Jade Lake had been treated as a child in front of so many people. It was so disgraceful!
Xu Que glanced at her and said calmly, “My daughter-in-law, you don’t understand! I plan to leave this Purple Sky Age Metal to Xu Que as an inheritance. In the future, it could be used as a betrothal gift. So I can’t afford to lose any of it!”
Hearing that, Bai Cailing felt much better. It was quite normal to be treated as a child by her father-in-law. However, the situation was still quite embarrassing! Apparently, this old man was implying that the Purple Sky Age Metal could be used as a betrothal gift. In other words, he was trying to urge Bai Cailing to marry Xu Que! Hearing this conversation, all the other people were puzzled. “Does it mean this old man is really going to take exclusive possession of the precious Purple Sky Age Metal?” was going through all their minds.
“Guardian Mo, I suggest we choose the first option. We can merge the Purple Sky Age Metal with an item temporarily!” Xu Que had made his choice. Since he couldn’t find another King Refiner here, he had to be content with second best and obtain a Middle-grade Celestial Artifact now. Moreover, if the Purple Sky Age Metal was merged to an item as an auxiliary material, he would suffer no loss. In future, he could still quench and reforge the Purple Sky Age Metal when he had an opportunity.
“Good! What will be used as the master item?” Mo Junchen shouted immediately. Xu Que took out his sword that was possessed by the Sword Spirit. It was a Low-grade Celestial Artifact. After being possessed by the Sword Spirit, it was always mistaken for a Middle-grade Celestial Artifact, although, actually, it was not as powerful as an authentic Middle-grade Celestial Artifact. If he could merge the Purple Sky Age Metal into it, this sword would definitely reach the level of Middle-grade Celestial Artifact. At that time, the Sword Spirit’s attack would also be more efficient.
However, when Xu Que took out his sword, he stopped suddenly. Such a sword at the level of Low-grade Celestial Artifact was not worth the precious Purple Sky Age Metal! Although he could get back the Purple Sky Age Metal from the sword in the future, he didn’t know when he would be able to do that. Maybe it would happen in dozens of years, maybe even in several hundred years. At that time, this sword would be too weak to satisfy his requirements.
“Faction Leader…Faction Leader’s father, have you made up your mind?” Mo Junchen shouted as he looked at the sword in Xu Que’s hand. He could understand Xu Que’s concern, and he also knew the Purple Sky Age Metal would be wasted if it was used on the edge of a Low-grade Celestial Artifact. However, he really had no other choices at this moment!
“Elder Xu, I can lend an item to you. Is that okay?” Bai Cailing asked as she took out a golden wheel that was a Middle-grade Celestial Artifact.
Xu Que was surprised. Then he said as he shook his head with a smile, “Thanks, my daughter-in-law, but that won’t be necessary!” He had made up his mind because the Purple Sky Age Metal would always be wasted no matter what kind of Celestial Artifact would be used to merge with it! However, he had an item that was not a magical artifact or a Celestial Artifact. It was a tool that was very handy. If it was used as a master item, it would be much more powerful when the Purple Sky Age Metal was merged with it. Maybe it would be even handier than a Celestial Artifact merged with the Purple Sky Age Metal!
WHOOSH! Xu Que waved his hand and took out a black rod from his crotch. It was a black rod that he had obtained from the gift bag of the System. It would knock anyone out, no matter what the target’s Cultivation Stage was! It was not a destructive weapon. However, if he merged the Purple Sky Age Metal into it, it would be as powerful as a Celestial Artifact made from the Purple Sky Age Metal. In addition, it also had the function of stunning!
At the thought of this, Xu Que smiled slightly. Then he turned to Bai Cailing with a big smile, “Heh, heh, heh!” Bai Cailing was surprised and puzzled by his reaction. “When an old man smiled at you as he held a black rod in his hand, what was he going to do?” She couldn’t help but wonder.
