“Little Queque, it seems you’re in a good mood! I guess you just finished making trouble, right?”
Liu Jingning came up with her skirt swinging in the wind. After boarding the jet fighter, she looked at Xu Que with a curious smile.
“By Heaven, I just finished some good deeds!” Xu Que replied with a smile. He had just revived Xiao Rou and tied the nuptial knot with the beautiful Taoist nun, sacrificing himself to solve her problem of being single. Couldn’t those things be deemed good deeds?
Liu Jingning was very curious about the stealth jet fighter. After watching the jet fighter closely, she failed to find out how it could be invisible. So, she couldn’t help but ask, “Little Queque, where did you get this thing? Why haven’t I seen anything like it before?”
“This is a stealth jet fighter. Have you watched the S.H.I.E.L.D.? It is really invisible!” Xu Que replied. When he was about to boast more aout it, Duan Jiude and Buttface rushed over.
“Damn! Little brat, you put ‘h*es before bros!’ Now this plane is mine!” Buttface shouted as he rushed into the cabin.
Duan Jiude also spoke solemnly: “Young man, you should at the very least respect the old and cherish the young!”
Respect the old and cherish the young?
Xu Que was a bit stunned. He had tied the nuptial knot with Duan Jiude’s beautiful master. Maybe a predestined marriage had been waiting for him! According to the laws of seniority in family, he could technically be the senior of Duan Jiude.
In this sense, it really is necessary to respect the old and cherish the young!
“What you say is correct! I should respect the old and cherish the young. Come on, welcome aboard!” Xu Que smiled immediately and welcomed Xu Jiude into the cabin.
Duan Jiude was surprised. He hadn’t expected Xu Que to follow his words and respect his seniors. “Ha! Young man, you are terrific!”
It was a pity that he thought Xu Que was respecting his seniors; he didn’t expect Xu Que was treating him as his junior!
While this was happening, over a dozen big ships in the open waters around the island were fighting each other fiercely.
The big ships of the big families and sects were so strong that they were only slightly scratched during the violent collisions.
As the fighting turned white-hot, some powerhouses couldn’t help but frown.
“We have to change the situation immediately,” Bai Lingrui, the Holy Virgin of the Bai Family said. “Otherwise, by the time this fight is over, the quiet period of the Upflowing Sea will be finished!”
This time many powerhouses of the Bai Family were participating in the Mystery Land Trial. However, Bai Lingrui still enjoyed the higher seniority and status among them, so she had great discursive power.
Hearing her words, the other powerhouses at the Void Training Stage nodded.
“What our Holy Virgin says is correct. We can’t waste our time here. If we can’t find a solution, I suggest we retreat now!”
“It’s a pity that we’re shorthanded. Otherwise, we could still compete with them!”
“The Jiang Family and the Gong Family are also in bad states. It seems they are also planning to retreat!”
“Are we really going to withdraw from the competition and let the other continents win this island?”
Many people frowned, trapped in the dilemma.
Standing at the ship’s bow, Bai Lingrui was considering all their options, the lights of her thoughts flashing in her eyes. She fixed her eyes on the jet fighter which revealed itself on the island.
The next moment, she was struck with an idea, and a smile appeared on her lips.
“Maybe we could still find a solution by making use of that guy!” Bai Lingrui said.
“Making use of Xu Que?” several Elders of the Bai Family asked at once, stunned.
After being cheated by Xu Que several times, these Elders felt nervous hearing his name. They didn’t want to provoke him further.
Bai Lingrui smiled confidently as she mapped out a strategy in her heart.
“As one of the most powerful families in the East Continent, the Bai Family will never be scared off by that guy! He has cheated us out of many Spirit Stones. However, this is also his weakness. Since he is so fond of Spirit Stones, we will exploit what he likes!” Bai Lingrui smiled coldly.
The Bai Family’s Elders were confused. “Holy Virgin, please explain!”
“He has threatened and robbed all of us, but I don’t believe everyone has lost all their Spirit Stones. How would they be propelling their ships? Therefore, we could join hands with the Jiang Family and the Gong Family by declaring that guy owns the island!”
Hearing her words, the Elders’ eyes lit up.
She continued, “When we declare that, no one will dare object us. I guess he has extracted all the Living Holy Water, so he should have lost interest in this island. We could discuss with him about deciding the attribution of the island through an auction. Of course, all the Spirit Stones collected from the auction will belong to him!”
Hearing her words, the Elders immediately cheered up. “Our Holy Virgin is very smart. This is a good idea indeed! With the presence of that guy, no one will dare object our proposal!”
“However, if the attribution of the island will be decided through auction, I’m afraid we don’t have enough Spirit Stones for that. After all, after being robbed by that guy twice, we really don’t have a lot of Spirit Stones left!” someone pointed out.
Bai Lingrui replied with a smile. “That’s the reason we should join hands with the Jiang Family and the Gong Family. If they participate in the auction, there won’t be enough Living Holy Water for distribution. Therefore, I think we should find an excuse to borrow some Spirit Stones from them, such as not having enough to propel our ship!”
After saying that, she started to speak sarcastically, a chilly light in her eyes. “We will be the ultimate owners of this island. And the other families and sects won’t hold grudges against us. On the contrary, they will hate that guy more. When he leaves the Upflowing Sea, he will absolutely be the target of many people!”
“Good idea!” the Elder’s the Bai Family laughed, agreeing to Bai Lingrui’s plan. As long as they could get the island, they could wait there for around twenty days until the regeneration of the Living Holy Water in the Living Holy Tree, which would be profitable for them no matter how many Spirit Stones they had spent in the auction!
In addition, this would further worsen the relationship between Xu Que and the other families and sects, which could avenge the Bai Family’s loss!
Soon, people of the Bai Family were mobilized.
Some of them borrowed a large sum of Spirit Stones from the Jiang Family and the Gong Family with the excuse that they had run out of Spirit Stones.
Meanwhile, Bai Lingrui sent a message to Xu Que personally to express her idea of obtaining the island through an auction.
Xu Que was stunned by her message for he didn’t understand why they still wanted to get the island as the Living Holy Tree was gone.
He soon realized the reason.
When he was flying he could overlook the entire island. He had quickly spotted the Living Holy Tree. But the Bai Family and the other families and sects couldn’t fly and they could only look at the island from afar. The Living Holy Tree was located at a low-lying place. Therefore, they couldn’t have discovered the tree was no longer there at all.
At the thought of this, Xu Que agreed by nodding his head immediately. “Certainly. I am not the type of person who doesn’t want to share the wealth with others. All of us are from the East Continent. Charity begins at home! Since you want this island, I could definitely transfer it to you!”
“I really appreciate that, Lord Xu!” Bai Lingrui sent the message as she stood on the ship’s bow with an ironic and sarcastic smile on her face.
