Everyone was silent and the atmosphere was strange.
All the people’s eyes were wide open as they stared at the medicine. Then they looked at Xu Que in completely shock.
In fact, this was the first time that they had seen this amount of medicine.
No, we must be dreaming!
How can it be possible that Hero Zhuge has so much medicine with him?
Could it be possible that he has looted a big sect and obtained all these supplies?
Situ Hai Tang, in particular, was stunned. Her mouth trembled and she looked at Xu Que in a daze.
She thought Xu Que had only been boasting before and would only take out a few bottles of medicine to save the soldiers. She had never thought that he would have such a huge amount of supplies with him.
This amount of medicine would be enough for the citizens of Snow City to use for a whole year.
“Hero Zhuge, where…where…” she looked at Xu Que, without knowing how to make a start.
She knew that only a large sect or a country could freely give out such a huge amount of medicine out to others. A small sect or a single family could never do such a thing.
Xu Que calmly waved his hand and said, “Situ, I have already told you that we are a big family and we should help each other. So consider the medicine a small gift from me.”
A small gift? Are you joking?
Some people were so shocked that they almost spat out blood…
Ding! “Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for acting tough successfully. The reward is 380 Acting Tough Points!”
Ding! “Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for acting tough successfully. The reward is 420 Acting Tough Points!”
The system notifications kept ringing in his head.
As long as he continued acting tough a little, he would easily be able to get almost 1000 Acting Tough Points. But Xu Que was not that interested in how much his Acting Tough Points had increased by.
After all, he was already a man with over 30,000 Acting Tough Points! There was no need to be too excited this time.
Still, he did feel a little good about himself.
“Why aren’t you all moving? Situ, help them divide the medicine so the soldiers can get what they need and recover sooner. We don’t have that much time, don’t forget that we have to make a plan to rescue the Water King!” Xu Que spoke, looking around the city. Clearly he was still acting as if such a huge amount of medicine wasn’t a big deal at all.
Seeing this, everyone began to admire Xu Que and praised him secretly.
He must have come from a super powerful faction!
Earlier, he had said that he was Zhuge Liang from the Exploding Heavens Faction.
What was the Exploding Heavens Faction? A faction that had a talent like Hero Zhuge and a great amount of supplies!
The sound of the system notifications rang again.
Suddenly, the old man in white appeared. But this time, his white clothes were soaked with blood. Obviously, he had killed many enemies.
The old man had come to the Snow City to join the discussion about rescuing the Water Empress. Seeing the pile of medicine on the ground, he was also shocked.
“The medicine…”the old man could not even finish a whole sentence.
“Second Uncle, this is a gift from Hero Zhuge…”
Situ Hai Tang quickly explained what had transpired to the old man as she divided the medicine amongst the the injured soldiers.
After being told what had happened, the old man was totally stunned and speechless.
He said his thanks to Xu Que and then joined Situ in delivering the medicine to the soldiers. He also brought some to the soldiers who were clearing the mess on the battlefield outside the city.
Meanwhile, Situ led Xu Que to the palace residences. On the journey, she gave a brief introduction of the city to Xu Que.
“When the uprising happened, everyone in the city freaked out. Soon, the soldiers of the Ice Troops came. Knowing that we would not give in, the people in the palace fled at night and took all the medicine,” Situ said.
Hearing this, Xu Que did not say anything. He was rather gloomy and asked, “I want to know what on earth had happened in Water Nation, and why the Water Empress is imprisoned in the mountain. Who is the Ice Queen by the way?”
Situ looked at him in surprise and said, “You do not know what has happened in Water Nation?”
God, he knows nothing but he still chose to help us. Can it be possible that he is a very good friend of the Water Empress?
“If I knew, do you think I would bother asking you?” Xu Que said.
Situ opened the door of the residences and said in a heavy voice, “It is a long story!”
Xu Que frowned and followed her.
They sat down.
Situ took out a piece of broken jade and asked, “Have you ever seen this before?”
Seeing the object in her hand, Xu Que began to laugh.
He had this piece of jade himself as well. It had been given by to him by the Water Empress when he had met her at the Tower of Souls.
Each jade had a mark upon its surface that had been made by the Water Empress. It seemed that only trusted confidants of the Empress would receive this jade.
Xu Que realized that Situ did not totally believe in him, which was why she had taken out the jade to test him!
“Situ, of course I have this jade as well, it was given to me by the Water Empress.”
He smiled, and took out his piece of jade from his system storage.
Seeing his jade, Situ was finally relieved and felt a bit sorry: “Hero Zhuge, please forgive me. We are the few people left in this country who remain loyal to the Water Empress, so…”
“It’s fine. Let’s get down to the real business… what on earth has happened?” Xu Que asked.
Situ’s face looked gloomy and started to speak. “Fifty years ago, when the previous Emperor was still alive, the Ice Queen was beloved by him. However, the Ice Queen was very ambitious and wanted to control this country…”
