After a short while, they finished their negotiation and reached a satisfactory agreement. The Bai Family would stop the fight first.
“Guys, stop fighting!” an old man of the Bai Family shouted on their ship. “What are you doing? According to the rules, the one who lands on the island first will own the island! Now Young Master Xu has become the owner, and we’ll become enemies with him if we continue to fight here!”
His sonorous voice echoed throughout the area. The other families and sects stopped fighting immediately.
Xu Que nodded his head on the shore. “Right! Are you going to rob me of my island?”
The appearance of Xu Que froze the cultivators’ blood. They waved their hands hurriedly and said, “Young Master Xu, you misunderstood us! We would never do that!”
“Right! We saw some guys trying to rob your island, so we decided to beat them back. We really mean well!”
Xu Que dismissively waved his hand. “It’s okay! Anyway, this island is boring now, so I’ll leave it to you. You know the Exploding Heavens Faction is short of Spirit Stones. Therefore, you could bid for the island now. The one who offers the highest price will be its new owner. How does that sound?”
The one who offers the highest price will be the new owner?
Hearing his words, the cultivators’ eyes lit up!
This suggestion satisfied them. After all, it was meaningless to continue fighting for it could only cause all of their destruction. Xu Que’s suggestion of vying for the island with Spirit Stones was definitely a good idea.
“Young Master Xu, the Yun Family still has 1,000,000 best-grade Spirit Stones. We planned to propel our ship with them, but now we will bid for this island with them!” the Holy Virgin of the Yun Family of the North Sea said immediately to get the upper hand.
The other families and sects also gave their bids after her.
“The Lin Family offers 2,000,000 best-grade Spirit Stones!”
“The Jiang Family offers 2,300,000 best-grade Spirit Stones!”
“The Bai Family offers 10,000,000 best-grade Spirit Stones!” an old man of the Bai Family cried.
This price overwhelmed all the other families and sects, and the entire area fell silent. Many cultivators were quite curious how the Bai Family could have so many Spirit Stones left after Xu Que’s two extortions.
How many Spirit Stones did they bring for this Mystery Land Trial?
“Damn! The Bai Family is a bunch of crafty scoundrels!” The Jiang Family and the Gong Family started to curse gloomily.
Now they knew why the Bai Family had borrowed Spirit Stones from them!
Xu Que was also shocked. Apparently, he didn’t expect these guys to be crafty enough to hide so many Spirit Stones!
“It seems you still have a lot of Spirit Stones left! I remember I ordered you to surrender all your Spirit Stones just now. I didn’t expect you to have so many left!” Xu Que said with a dead-eyed smile.
Oh, no! His smile made the cultivators quite nervous!
Bai Lingrui was also shocked. Then, she furrowed her eyebrows in thought. It seemed her plan was not perfect, for if Xu Que robbed them again, they could do nothing to stop him.
However, just at this time, Xu Que started speaking with a generous smile. “Guys, please don’t worry. The Exploding Heavens Faction has a rule about stealing. Today, I am in a good mood, so I won’t rob you again! So, the Bai Family offered the highest price, right? Hand in 10,000,000 best-grade Spirit Stones and the Bai Family will be the new owner of this island.”
Hearing his words, those cultivators’ expressions changed immediately.
If the Bai Family obtained the island, they would have to return empty-handed.
However, a lot of people also let out a sigh of relief. At least they could leave together with the Spirit Stones they had hidden just now.
The Bai Family were delighted and started silently celebrating.
Bai Lingrui’s sarcastic expression became more and more obvious.
Xu Que of the Exploding Heavens Faction is nothing but a dumbass! she internally sneered as she asked an apprentice of the Bai Family to hand in a storage ring full of Spirit Stones to Xu Que.
After that, the ship of the Bai Family sailed toward the island proudly in front of numerous jealous and unconvinced eyes.
The Elders of the Bai Family could finally rest assured. They also felt lucky about Bai Lingrui’s plan; otherwise, the Bai Family would also have to return empty-handed.
“Okay, this has been a very satisfying deal! I have to deal with some important business, so I have to leave now! Farewell!” Xu Que checked the Spirit Stones in the storage ring and got ready to leave.
After all, there was nothing left on this island, so it was unnecessary to waste time on it anymore. He would go to harvest the other 17 Living Holy Trees and the Living Holy Water.
When he was about to turn around and walk to his jet fighter, Bai Lingrui sent a message to him.
“Lord Xu, if you leave here, I’m afraid they will try to rob us of this island. Could you stay here a little bit longer so that we could set up defensive spells?”
“Don’t worry, let me handle it!” Xu Que said with a pat of his chest.
He turned to the other cultivators and harshly shouted, “Guys, since this island has become the property of the Bai Family, I will leave now. However, I have to warn you that the ships of the Exploding Heavens Faction are ubiquitous! Anyone who dares to rob the Bai Family of this island will be attacked mercilessly! Remember, this warning is also for your own sake. Don’t make meaningless sacrifices!”
His words dismissed the evil ideas of many families and sects immediately.
The Living Holy Water was precious. However, compared to life, it was nothing.
“For our own sake? Heh-heh, we’ll repay your kindness by doubling what you’ve done to us after leaving the Mystery Land!”
“No! For an eye, both eyes! For a tooth, a whole jaw!”
Many people resentfully cursed him in their hearts.
The Bai Family laughed harder for Xu Que’s words ensured their safety and greatly offended the other families and sects.
“Should we describe him as foolish or stupid?”
“He is both foolish and stupid! Hah-hah!”
“He is too young. If we knew we could solve the problem with only 10,000,000 best-grade Spirit Stones, we wouldn’t have fought so hard at the very beginning!”
“That’s enough! Let’s set up spells on the island. After 20 days, we will obtain the Living Holy Water, which will ensure the Bai Family entering the top three of this competition!”
As the members of the Bai Family sent messages to each other, their ship approached the island at last. Several powerhouses landed on the island one after another.
At the same time, Xu Que waved them goodbye and piloted his jet fighter off the island to fly toward the second island.
However, when the plane had just taken off, the island filled with exclamations of the Bai Family.
“Ah . . . ”
“How could this be?”
“Where is the tree?”
“It seems the tree has been uprooted by someone!”
“That’s impossible! Nobody in this world could move the Living Holy Tree!”
“Then can you tell me where the tree is?”
They were quite confused and didn’t know what had happened.
Hearing their exclamations, the cultivators outside the island immediately became interested.
“What’s going on?”
“It seems something happened in the Bai Family!”
“I think I heard that the Living Holy Tree is gone! How could that be? Could the tree have been uprooted by someone?”
Just at this moment, Xu Que’s sonorous voice came from the jet fighter in the sky.
“Buttface, wake up! Chop the Living Holy Tree into firewood now. Otherwise, we won’t have enough firewood to boil the bathwater tonight!”
