“Little sister, please give me a hug!” Xu Que pouted as if he was a baby, then spread his arms as he flew towards Liu Jingning.
Immediately, Liu Jingning felt her blood freeze and almost wanted to hit someone, but she still instantly flew hundreds of feet away. Her eyes were full of shock.
“You… What are you going to do? Stay away from me!” She was quite vigilant this time so she could prevent Xu Que from touching her in other ways!
Seeing this, Buttface, who was on the ground, was dumbfounded again!
“Little brat, are you crazy? Damn, that’s disgusting!” Buttface couldn’t take it anymore and pretended to vomit.
After all, not everyone’s flirting was destructive!
Liu Jingning was a charming, natural beauty. Therefore, all her coquettish actions were beautiful and destructive to him.
However, although Xu Que was gentle and polite, his flirting was abominable, making him look like the cheapest man in history. Even the cowardly Buttface was planning on beating him.
Xu Que stopped when he thought he got revenge against Liu Jingning, then looked at her with a smile and said, “Okay, that’s enough. Let’s get down to business! Which way should we go now?”
Looking at Xu Que confusedly and vigilantly, Liu Jingning kept her distance from him and while pointing at a far place, said, “We should head south!”
“That way leads to the South Continent, but I don’t want to go there now, so I’m not going your way. Just stop following us!” Xu Que said, shaking his head.
“Where are you going? If you don’t go to the South Continent, I won’t go, either!” Liu Jingning replied directly.
She had figured out Xu Que’s plan to find Jiang Hongyan, but she didn’t want to point it out.
Xu Que smiled, “If you follow me, you’ll definitely get into trouble!”
“I know you’ll get into trouble, and that’s why I have to follow you! Let me tell you the truth, Jiang Hongyan trusted me to protect you. Before, I only promised to deliver the message for her, and I didn’t plan to protect you all the way. However, I’ve just decided to do that, and I’ll keep following you, even if you don’t like it,” Liu Jingning said with a cunning smile!
At this moment, her stubbornness and charm were revealed at the same time, which made her extremely beautiful. No one could deny that Liu Jingning was a charming woman, characterized by her high IQ and EQ!
The more Xu Que refused to let her follow him, the more she insisted on following them. Her stubbornness was quite like that of Xu Que.
However, Xu Que wasn’t willing to cooperate with her, because it was too dangerous and not difficult to figure out her true intentions. If Xu Que wasn’t careful enough, he would easily fall into her trap.
For dealing with these kind of people, Xu Que had only one method, which was to ignore her and stay aloof!
“Buttface, let’s go!” Xu Que ignored Liu Jingning and left with Buttface.
On the way, Liu Jingning said nothing and just followed them closely. She was staring at Xu Que’s back thoughtfully with a faint smile on her face.
Buttface kept looking at Xu Que with his shiny eyes to express his endless reverence, because Xu Que, who had just spanked Liu Jingning’s butt, was so intimidating.
Buttface claimed he also wanted to learn that so that he could use it to deal with female dragons in future!
Xu Que was delighted, but he refused Buttface seriously, shaking his head, then said earnestly, “We should take care of and give tender love to ladies. We should never beat women! What a lousy man you are! Oh no, you’re a lousy dog!
Buttface immediately became annoyed. You said we should take care of and give tender love to ladies, right? Then what did you do just now?
Liu Jingning, who was following them, also heard Xu Que’s words. Her smile froze abruptly, then she snorted.
She said nothing, but the charming smile returned to her face after a short while.
The two people and the dog kept moving forward for over two hours. Finally, an ancient city in the distance came into their sights!
A huge platform was located on the outskirts of the ancient city, on which a group of cultivators gathered, exclaiming from time to time.
“Eh, what are they doing?” Buttface asked in surprise.
Xu Que was also slightly confused, because those people looked a bit like street gamblers from Earth!
“Little Que Que, do you want to go and check it out? Perhaps you can cause some trouble again, so I can protect you!” said Liu Jingning, who was behind them. She was smiling, her eyes full of cunning.
Xu Que immediately became vigilant.
She actively asked me to check it out! It must be a conspiracy!
But! I know clearly who I am as a Tough-Acting King! Nothing can terrify a Tough-Acting King!
Do you think a Tough-Acting King could be terrified by some words?
“Buttface, you go see what’s going on!” Xu Que asked Buttface to scout ahead immediately!
Buttface felt his blood freeze instantly, so he shook his head and said, “No, no, I’m not a dragon who likes to socialize too much, let’s just keep going!”
“Well, I’m also not a nosy man, so let’s just keep going!” Xu Que said, nodding.
“Good, then it’s decided!” Buttface also nodded his head. He struck a chord with Xu Que to keep out of the issue.
Liu Jingning’s heart was dancing with delight. A smile grew on her face.
She had said that deliberately to make Xu Que unsure so he would stay away from the trouble, but she hadn’t expected Xu Que to be so shameless by working out a justified excuse for not cooperating with Buttface.
Still, she was pleased with the results. At least Xu Que wouldn’t get involved in unnecessary trouble!
At the same time, they were flying over the crowd on the platform. Below them, a large group of people were busy cutting at a giant stone.
Hardly had a crack appeared in the stone when the crowd began to shout.
“Wow, look at the color, maybe there is a treasure in the stone!”
“It’s green, crystal clear, and full of Spiritual Qi. It’s certainly something precious!”
“See, runes are flowing in it. Along with the time-honored stone, there must be an ancient treasure inside!”
“No wonder they’re disciples of the Heaven Secret Pavilion. Their luck and vision are so good! They have every right to participate in tonight’s Stone-Cutting Convention while representing the Heaven Secret Pavilion!”
In the sky, after hearing those exclamations and watching the scene below, Xu Que was immediately startled.
Damn! Are these people betting on stones?
He was familiar with it, because on Earth, there had been such gambling activity. First, the gambler would spend money to buy stones that were favored, then the stones would be cut. If high quality jade was found inside the stones, the gambler would make big money. However, if low quality material or nothing was found inside the stone, the gambler would lose all the money spent on the stones.
But according to the reactions of the people down there, something precious must had been found.
“Little brat, it seems like they found something good! Should we rob them?” Buttface asked submissively. It seemed like he was quite interested in the item.
“I’m not interested!” Xu Que shook his head.
He didn’t want to make trouble temporarily. His plan was to enter the ancient city first and find a place to settle down, then purchase the Secret of All. If he was lucky enough, he could also open the Dragon Soul Element.
Liu Jingning kept staring at Xu Que’s back from behind. After hearing his reply of “I’m not interested,” she let out a sigh of relief.
Among the cultivators below them, there were not only people of the Heaven Secret Pavilion, but also disciples of many big families and sects. If Xu Que really went down to cause trouble, he would soon become the public enemy of the East Continent, like Jiang Hongyan.
At just this moment, in the crowd below, a man cut the surface layer of the stone directly with a jade knife.
His actions attracted everyone’s attention. Xu Que and Buttface also couldn’t help taking a closer look.
Before everyone could see what was in the stone, as the surface layer of the stone was peeled off, a green light flashed before the onlookers’ eyes and shot into the sky abruptly.
Thanks to his sharp eyes and deft hands, Xu Que grabbed the green light which was flying towards him with his palm.
If he didn’t do that, he would be hit by that green light.
All of a sudden, the crowd below went silent. Everyone looked up and fixed their eyes on Xu Que and the green light in his hand!
“B*stard, how dare you steal my things? Return it to me quickly!” the man who had cut the stone with a jade knife said angrily as he coldly stared at Xu Que.
Almost at the exact same time, several elders in the Infant Transformation Stage jumped into the sky from the platform, then shouted at Xu Que with a gloomy face, “How dare you steal a treasure from the stone quarry of the Jiang family? Get down here!”
Xu Que became speechless at this moment. Buttface was also completely shocked.
Liu Jingning was completely dumbfounded!
As she looked at Xu Que, the unspoken words in her eyes were you poor kid!
After all, she had never expected Xu Que, who was unlucky, to be mistaken for a robber when they passed a stone quarry, even after Xu Que refused to make trouble.
What was even more unfortunate was that this stone quarry belonged to the Jiang family!
