The few of them worked together!
By the end of it all, Xu Que had successfully cleared out all the treasures in the chamber.
However, the treasure vault had not been cleared yet. Even though the eunuchs had been busy moving treasure, it didn’t appear that anything had really been moved out of the vault at all.
Xu Que stepped out, patted his chest and valiantly declared, “don’t worry, all of you! This kind of dirty work should be handed over to me!”
With that, he entered the treasure vault.
The next moment, Xu Que stared wide-eyed at the sight before him. He was blown away!
This is called a f*cking treasure vault?
This is a gigantic treasure cave!
He looked around in awe. The treasure vault was at least the size of a football field, and every inch of it was covered in treasure.
Gold, silver and gemstones were scattered everywhere, gleaming bright enough to dazzle the eyes of many.
However what surprised Xu Que most was the sheer number of chests in a corner of the vault. There had to be over a hundred. Most of them were open to reveal countless suits of armour made of black gold, all dark and shining. Just one look was enough to tell these were no ordinary items!
On the other wall, there were rows and rows of neatly placed swords, halberds, spears, clubs and so on, hanging on the wall. It was practically an armory!
There was also another stone door deeper within the treasure vault. The door was ajar. At one glance, there were tables and chairs, as well as a bookshelf, all painted over with gold leaf!
On the bookshelf, there were many ancient books, manuals, jade scrolls and pills. These were all objects that would be very hard to come by!
Obviously, the Second Prince would have read the skill manuals there and used that room for solitude.
“There’s so much here that it’s hard to move everything out in a short time!” The old eunuch, Steward Liu, expressed his concerns. He stared in dismay at the amount of treasures that lay inside the treasure vault!
Xu Que raised his eyebrows, unhappy.
Are you kidding me? You’re worried that you can’t clear all of this out when the Act Tough King is right beside you? he thought.
Come, come, come, I’ll clear them all out for all of you now!
With a wave of his hand, Xu Que spoke honorably, “all of you need not worry, his Royal Highness has already thought of this. That’s the reason I’m here.”
“Oh? Young lad, you have a solution?” Steward Liu was thrilled when he heard Xu Que’s words!
Xu Que returned his smile. “You’re right. I have a skill that is related to Soul Strength. This skill enables me to store an enormous amount of things in a storage ring in one go!”
“What? Young lad, you actually have such a fantastic skill!”
“No wonder his Royal Highness trusts you so much. You’re really extraordinary, young lad!”
The eunuchs were impressed with Xu Que and started to show him more respect!
Xu Que responded by bowing low with his hands folded in front of his chest. He replied modestly, “lay low, lay low, and the whole world will know!”
The eunuchs were baffled for a moment, then they covered their mouths and chuckled. Their posture and the sounds of their laughter resembled those of women who loved to doll up and dress gorgeously.
“Young lad, you sure are humorous!”
Steward Liu threw Xu Que a flirtatious wink!
“There’s not much time left,” Xu Que said. “Everyone move aside as I need to start work now!”
As he spoke, he headed to the stone door that was situated farthest away from the entrance.
Good things had to be taken first.
Xu Que walked to the bookshelf covered in gold leaf. Without any hesitation, he waved his hand and stored everything into his system inventory —the manuals, jade scrolls, pills and everything else! Even the bookshelf was whipped inside!
“Wow… what a powerful skill this is!”
“With just one move, everything has been stored inside the storage ring!”
“The young lad is no ordinary person. No wonder his Royal Highness sent him over.”
“He’ll definitely achieve great things in future. We need to get into his good books!”
The eunuchs watched in awe and gasped in wonderment like Xu Que’s biggest fans!
However, Xu Que did not pay any attention to these people as he continued working hard to ‘confiscate’ everything in sight!
He cleaned out everything without restraint in the treasure vault, leaving nothing behind. Anything he fancied was taken away.
To put it simply, there was nothing that he did not like in the treasure vault. And thus, in just a few minutes, Xu Que had emptied out the entire treasure vault. It was now spotless…
The eunuchs were transfixed by what was happening. They were floored!
This was a task that would have required more than two hours, yet this young lad had finished the job within minutes. Such speed was simply remarkable!
“Ahh, finally cleared everything out!” Xu Que heaved a long sigh of relief, swiping his forehead as if wiping off non-existent beads of perspiration.
Property confiscation sure is exhausting! he thought.
The eunuchs were smart. They quickly came up to Xu Que and started to wipe his forehead with a clean handkerchief, all fawning over him!
“Young lad, you’ve worked hard!”
“We really don’t know how to thank you enough!”
“Exactly, it’s so fortunate that you’re here. Otherwise, we would never have been able to complete this task. And if we had failed, we would have been punished by the Second Prince, his Royal Highness!”
Xu Que laughed and waved his hands dismissively. “All of you are too polite. This is what I should be doing. Don’t be so courteous with me, getting a little tired is nothing!”
“Young lad, you’re so modest. That explains why his Royal Highness trusts you so much. Young lad, we hope that you’ll take care of us in future!” Steward Liu smiled meaningfully, hinting at Xu Que to help him out in future.
Xu Que patted his chest in a show of humility. He also asked, “oh right, do you have any valuables with you? Better leave them with me. Later the Emperor might get people to conduct a body search on all of you. After all, this is quite a significant matter!”
After hearing Xu Que, the eunuchs instantly slapped their own heads.
“I almost forgot that I have a four-star magic weapon with me!”
“Aiya, I’ve got a lot of stuff in my storage bag as well!”
“Fortunately you reminded us in time, young lad, otherwise we would be in big trouble!”
“Yes, we can’t let his Royal Highness fall into utter destitution whilst the few of us remain affluent. The Emperor might fly into a rage and we’ll all be finished!”
“Thank you so much, young lad!”
The eunuchs were moved and gratefully handed all of their storage bags to Xu Que.
They were not in the least bit suspicious of Xu Que. They even thought that Xu Que seemed like a conscientious and considerate person.
“All of you are too polite. I’m just doing what I should be doing, there’s no need to say all these words! We’ll have tea together in future if time allows. I’ll need to report back to the Second Prince, his Royal Highness now!”
Xu Que humbly threw the storage bags into his system inventory and turned around to leave.
The eunuchs were deeply touched as they watched his figure become smaller in the distance.
What a nice young lad!
He’s modest, very powerful and so efficient. He doesn’t throw his weight about.
He really is good young man!
“Oh right… young lad, we’re sorry that we were so flustered just now and forgot to ask for your name,” said Steward Liu hastily, as he had just remembered that they didn’t know the boy’s name. “How should we address you?”
Xu Que looked back, wearing an innocent smile. “My name is Red Scarf!”
