The door suddenly opened. Xu Que’s hand hovered over the Water Empress’ delicate and beautiful face, poised to knock.
He smiled. “I heard that you are going to held an auction.”
The Water Empress smiled and nodded. “You are right. After all the battles, many people have lost their homes and become refugees. I need some money and Spirit Stones to help them.”
“You should ask for help from me. I have got plenty of money and Spirit Stones, I will give them to you,” Xu Que said, about to take out the Spirit Stones and money out.
The Water Empress waved her hand and smiled. “There is no need. You should keep your Spirit Stones, you will need them in the future. I will take care of the refugees.”
“Young lady, remember that we are friends. Look at how close we are. Do not worry, I have more Spirit Stones than I need,” Xu Que said.
Still, the Water Empress did not accept his request.
Xu Que recalled what the Ice Queen had told him. She had asked him not to get involved in anything to do with the Water Empress.
The Water Empress looked very mild, but in fact she made people think that she was a very indifferent and independent woman.
As for Xu Que, he was an exception. In the past, he had accidently seen her naked, which had actually brought them closer. Also, Xu Que had invented many peculiar things, like the fried chicken wings and stinky tofu, and had killed the Old God of Killing of Tian Sha as well as the Fire Emperor. After all these things, the Water Empress had become more fond of him.
“How about this, I will buy all your belongings, and you will earn more than what you would get in the auction,” Xu Que said.
The Water Empress shook her head and smiled. “They are all just ordinary magic weapons and accessories. Plus, I already sent them to the auction house.”
“What?! You have sent them to the auction house?” Xu Que got a bit nervous.
The Water Empress was amazed by him. “Little chap, go back to honing your cultivation. If I’ve guessed right, you are about to go through your Heavenly Trial!”
“Young lady, you are being rather serious about this. I don’t care about the so-called Heavenly Trial, we are talking about the auction, now tell me where the auction house is!” Xu Que got a bit impatient as he was afraid that the Water Empress’ belongings would be bought off by others.
“You cannot go to the auction!” the Water Empress said as she shook her head.
“Why?” Xu Que was a bit confused.
Why can’t I go? Yes, she is beautiful, but she cannot bully me…
The Water Empress did not reply and simply stared at him.
Xu Que suddenly thought this through and blushed. “Don’t worry, I promise I won’t make any trouble.”
Clearly, the Water Empress was worried that once he went to the auction, he would immediately buy all the objects…
After all, no matter where Xu Que went, he would cause trouble.
“You know what, you are even more famous than me in the Imperial City.” The Water Empress smiled.
In the past few days, almost everyone had come to know Xu Que and become his fan. If he really went to the auction and named a price, no one would dare to try bid a higher price than him.
“Have you forgotten what I looked like when you saw me for the first time? I am very good at the tactic of disguising oneself.” Xu Que laughed.
He then took out a mask that resembled the Chinese actor Hu Ge and put it on his face.
The Water Empress was a bit surprised. She carefully looked at his new face for a while. “It does not suit you, your own face looks more energetic than that.”
“Of course. Everyone says that I am the most handsome man in the world. Okay, you’d better tell me where you are going to hold the auction. I need to go there and buy some magic inscriptions,” Xu Que said.
The Water Empress smiled and took out a jade invitation card with gold stamping. The invitation card was delicately made, and was as thin as a piece of paper. Moreover, it was emitting Qi from time to time.
“Tian Liu Chamber of Commerce? The building in the center market of the city?” Xu Que smiled.
A few days ago, he had walked past the Tian Liu Chamber of Commerce whilst on his way to the third Duke’s residence.
“Remember, don’t let anyone else recognize you and do not cause any troubles. They have very strong back up, you must follow their rules,” the Water Empress said seriously.
“Fine, I promise I will behave myself,” Xu Que said and quickly went outside.
“Wait! Do not kill anyone this time!”
“What?! I cannot hear you! Good bye!”
Xu Que pretended he had not heard her. In the blink of an eye, he disappeared.
The Water Empress summoned a maid. “Get someone to tell the people in the Tian Liu Chamber of Commerce that I have something to do and will not be attending the auction.”
“Yes,” the maid said.
Xu Que extended his Black Flamed Wings, riding on the lightning. In just a few seconds, he arrived at the market in the center of the city.
As expected, there was a huge number of people in the street.
As soon as the news spread that the Water Empress was going to sell some of her personal belongings and some advanced magic weapons, many people from rich families had gathered in the Tian Liu Chamber of Commerce.
Since the Water Empress was very famous in the city and especially favored by young people, many young people were also attending the auction. Of course, some old and powerful cultivators were also there at the auction.
Suddenly, Xu Que appeared.
He was now wearing a new face and a new pair of clothes. He looked like a ranger in the World of Cultivators.
Since he now looked exactly like Hu Ge, who was a very handsome young man, many female cultivators were staring at him.
Xu Que hurried to the entrance and was relieved when he saw that the auction had not started yet.
A guard stopped him. “Show me your invitation card and tell me your name!”
Xu Que took out his jade invitation card with gold stamping and smiled. “Wang Sicong of the Exploding Heavens Faction!”
