Bai Cailing was totally puzzled by Xu Que’s actions. He was still smiling at her. However, inexplicably, Bai Cailing got a feeling that Xu Que was not looking at her. Although Xu Que was looking in her direction, it seemed he was looking at something else. It was quite weird.
“Is this an illusion?” Bai Cailing thought and frowned slightly. Then she looked away and ignored Xu Que. After all, she was this old man’s daughter-in-law now. If she and this old man made eyes at each other like this in front of so many people, her reputation would definitely be ruined. Actually, Bai Cailing’s speculation was right. Although Xu Que was looking at her, in fact, he was laughing as he looked at the interface of the System.
Since he had decided to reforge this piece of equipment, the equipment-refining essence was essential. Just now, Mo Junchen had said if the Purple Sky Age Metal was merged with an item, he could create a Middle-grade Celestial Artifact. However, if the equipment-refining essence was added during the reforging, he might even get a High-grade Celestial Artifact at last! Then, when he was facing a sovereign at the Heaven Celestial Stage, his attack with the rod would not only knock them out, but also smash their heads! At the thought of this, he couldn’t help but laugh when he saw more than 100,000 items of equipment-refining essence in the System interface!
“Guardian Mo, just merge the Purple Sky Age Metal into this perfect rod, which will be used as the master item!” Xu Que shouted.
WHOOSH! The black rod flew rapidly up in the sky and created many ripples in the void, before it appeared in front of Mo Junchen abruptly. Everyone’s eyes were fixed on the rod with surprise. “This rod…is too common!” Someone said, puzzled.
When Xu Que took out this black rod for the first time, he knocked Yi Zhong from the Divine Farmer Clan unconscious. At that time, the onlookers didn’t find anything remarkable about this rod. They believed Yi Zhong was knocked out because of the extraordinary power of this old man. Now, when this old man took out this black rod again, they were totally puzzled. “Why does he want to use such a common item as the master item? After all, this rod is not even a magical artifact!” These thoughts were running through everyone’s heads.
“Father of the Faction Leader, are you sure…you are going to use this thing as the master item? I’m afraid the Purple Sky Age Metal will be wasted!” Mo Junchen held the black rod in his hand as he looked at Xu Que with puzzlement. As a First-grade King Refiner, he couldn’t figure out what was so special about this black rod, and he also couldn’t understand why Xu Que insisted on adding the precious Purple Sky Age Metal into such a common rod!
“Stop asking questions! This rod is very important for me and is my treasure! Just do it!” Xu Que said firmly. His words stunned the onlookers who started to exclaim immediately. It seemed this old man, who might be a Celestial King, was acting really old by treating a common rod as a treasure. “Was he senile? Does this rod have special meaning for him?” All the onlookers had thoughts like these in their heads.
“Eh, I remember he hit Yi Zhong with this rod!” Someone said in a low voice. Hearing that, many people nodded their heads. Only Bai Cailing and the female apprentices of the Jade Lake were still puzzled. “Why did someone mention Yi Zhong at this time? We don’t see any relationship between him and this rod!”
BOOM! At the same time, Mo Junchen had started the merging. Since Xu Que wanted to merge the Purple Sky Age Metal into this rod, he would follow Xu Que’s instructions. Anyway, the Purple Sky Age Metal belonged to Xu Que. Mo Junchen was not entitled to make any decisions about the Purple Sky Age Metal even if he felt regret at what he was asked to do. After all, Mo Junchen had made a promise to Xu Que that he would finish the reforging successfully at the very beginning. When he was surprised by the sudden change of the divine fire, Xu Que asked him to merge the Purple Sky Age Metal into this black rod. So, Mo Junchen had no reason to not do what Xu Que asked.
SWISH! Strands of powerful Celestial Core Power gushed out from Mo Junchen’s fingertips and started to draw out the liquid Purple Sky Age Metal that was enwrapped by the divine fire. Then, a strand of Purple Sky Age Metal was drawn out. The next moment, Mo Junchen reached out his fingers to throw that strand of Purple Sky Age Metal toward the black rod! That strand of liquid Purple Sky Age Metal was as thin as a spider’s thread. After landing on the black rod, it started to move around the black rod in a special way. At last, it was merged into the rod firmly and formed a beautiful totem after cooling down.
When more and more of the Purple Sky Age Metal landed on the black rod, the totem became larger and more solid. When half of the liquid Purple Sky Age Metal had landed on the rod, the construction of that totem was finished at last. Mo Junchen didn’t stop his movements. He continued to wave his hands to draw out strands of liquid Purple Sky Age Metal. He threw the liquid metal toward the other end of the black rod to form another totem. This totem was same as the last one. When the construction of this totem was finished, almost all the rest of the liquid Purple Sky Age Metal was used up.
BOOM! At the same time, Mo Junchen reached out his hands in the air. Then, the remaining liquid Purple Sky Age Metal was drawn out and thrown toward the central area of the black rod.
Seeing that, the onlookers couldn’t bite their tongues anymore. “Is he going to use up all the rest of the Purple Sky Age Metal?” They had chosen to stay watching this process because they wanted to get a share of the Purple Sky Age Metal. But they couldn’t steal the Purple Sky Age Metal openly when Xu Que had said he would take exclusive possession of the precious material. Now, when they saw that Mo Junchen was about to use up all the Purple Sky Age Metal, they couldn’t keep silent anymore.
The sovereigns of Dishou Mountain and the Zhouwang Palace shouted at the same time. Then one of them said seriously as they looked at Xu Que, “Elder Xu, I’m afraid what you are doing now is inappropriate. According to the rules, you can have the biggest share of the thing found here. However, we are also qualified to share the rest!” All the people started to look at Xu Que, including Ji Wuyun’s Dark Shadow Pagoda and the people from the Jade Lake. However, the Jade Lake didn’t act aggressively as the other sects did. After all, they were still counting on Xu Que to save their peach trees.
HUMPH! Xu Que looked indifferent as he shook his head with a cold smile, “I will only tell you once more! The Purple Sky Age Metal was not found here. I brought it to this place. Also, I am trying to reforge it with the divine fire here. If you want to steal it, do it at your own risks!” Xu Que answered confidently. He didn’t worry about possible attacks from these people. He was so close to the divine fire. He had plenty of methods to burn these people to ash with it.
In this way, his words intimidated these people again. From the very beginning, they believed Xu Que’s Cultivation Stage had reached the Celestial King or an even higher stage. After witnessing the displays of Xu Que’s strength so many times, they had the growing conviction that their speculations were correct. Now, when they heard Xu Que’s confident words, they believed that this old man was at least a Celestial King!
Although they thought they knew Xu Que wouldn’t dare to display the strength of a Celestial King here, they weren’t absolutely sure about that. If this old man really attacked them with the strength of a Taiyi Celestial, all of them would be killed. Even their sects could be ruined by this old man. This was way too risky! People from the three sects stared at each other in speechless despair.
BOOM! A dull sound rang out. Mo Junchen had wrapped the central part of the black rod with the remaining Purple Sky Age Metal. The rod, which used to be inky black, became purple black. The purple black metal in the middle was surrounded by the totems on both ends, which were thicker than the central part. The entire rod looked quite domineering and noble. Also, horrible Terrifying Spiritual Qi could be sensed coming from this rod.
“Alas! We were too late!” People from the three sects sighed and shook their heads in sorrow. They had given up the idea of stealing the Purple Sky Age Metal just now. They couldn’t afford the cost of failure in stealing the Purple Sky Age Metal. They worried their sects could be ruined if they engaged in reckless actions.
PHEW! At this moment, Mo Junchen rubbed his pale face with his sleeves at this time and landed on the ground. Meanwhile, the newly forged rod dashed toward Xu Que through the sky. Then Xu Que waved his hand and shouted, “Wait! I need to add some essence into it, so that it can become a perfect treasure!”
