At the same time, the center of the Ghost King Market.
A Blood Sea that stretched thousands of square feet nestled in that area. Humongous and enormous, no wonder people called it a sea.
The Blood sea was bloody red and thick like fresh blood. When the seawater moved, they moved like molten lava.
A thick miasma covered the surface of the sea. There were strands of black within the deep red, from far it looked like a patch of light reddish-brown. The smell was piercing and nauseating.
Mortals would give up the moment the smell hit them.
Ordinary fighters at the Bronze Level would not dare to approach the Blood Sea easily. Silver Level powerhouses needed to put on antitoxin lotion before they could pass through the Miasma.
Of course, no matter the level of the fighter, be it Silver or Gold, they would need to obtain the Ghost King Order before they could fly into the center area.
Otherwise, once the center area’s Ghost King Palace activates its defense mechanism, the overwhelming strength of the device would be enough to dump them all into the Blood Sea, eroding them into nothingness.
At the border of the Blood Sea, stood two beautiful figures and a toy poodle.
A halo of brilliance spread from Jiang Hongyan’s body and enveloped both her and Xu Feifei, resisting the corrosion of the Miasma.
In fact, with her strength, she would have no problems barging into the Ghost King Palace.
However, she still had to take care of Xu Feifei. Xu Feifei was still a mortal. If Jiang Hongyan had to spare some attention to take care of her, she might not be able to hold off the opponent’s attack stemming from the Blood Sea’s prowess.
If she made Xu Feifei stay behind and charged in alone, Xu Feifei would be in danger, seeing how chaotic the Second Realm is.
Therefore, the only thing she could do was to stand by the shore of the Blood Sea, locked in a temporary stalemate with the Ghost King Palace.
Outside the perimeter, many surrounded the area and waited for the show. There was a nonstop buzz of chatterings.
“These two women are beautiful beyond belief! To think that we could see such beauties in the Second Realm.
“Especially so for the lady holding up the light shield. Mature and dignified, she has this exceptional air about her. I reckon that no one in the entire Taijin Continent could compare to her beauty.”
“you guys better keep your mouths shut. That woman could stand this long by the Blood Sea and still spare effort to protect the person beside her. She abilities must be at least at the peak of the Silver Level, or even Gold Level.”
“What? She’s that strong?”
“How did they become enemies wth the Ghost King Palace?”
“Hah, I heard that the Second Young Master of the Ghost King Palace provoked them from outside the First Realm. They then chased him down all the way here.”
“Fuck, didn’t the Second Young Master enter the First Realm to pay respect to his ancestors? I heard that the Li family had recently found a new graveyard and were planning to relocate the ashes of their ancestors. How did they come to be at loggerheads?”
“What did he do for them to cross realms and chase him down?”
“I heard from the Second Young Master’s guard that it was the Second Young Master who spoke ill to the younger lady and even made a move on her. Luckily, that powerful woman stopped his advances. She then seemed to discover some treasure on him and asked for it, but the Second Young Master refused. He offended them again with words, and hence the chase down.”
“I see! Trouble brew as the words leaves the mouth!”
“Trouble? You must be kidding, why would the Second Young Master of the Ghost King Palace be afraid of trouble? Didn’t you see that those two were blocked outside the Blood Sea?”
“You have a point. Furthermore, Boss Li had not made his appearance. This woman was no match for them.”
“If they still refuse to leave, they’ll be in big trouble.”
Everyone discussed among themselves, but none thought that the Ghost King Palace would be in trouble. They even believed that Jiang Hongyan and Xu Feifei would be utterly crushed.
“Make way, make way, make way for your Master!” a series of holler suddenly came from their behind.
Everyone turned around and was stunned for a moment.
“Isn’t that the First Young Master of the Ghost King Palace?”
“Fuck, why is he in such a state? Did someone beat him up?”
“What’s happening today? First, someone chased down the Second Young Master of the Ghost King Palace. Now, even the First Young Master was beaten up.”
“Looks like Boss Li will be furious this time.”
Many had horror on their faces as they made way for that Young Master to enter.
“Fuck, how dare he beat me up in Ghost King City? ” The middle-aged man looked pathetic and beaten, with blood all over as he made his way through the crowd angrily. He kept cursing and looked nothing like the wimp he was before Xu Que.
“Servants, are you blind? Didn’t you see that your young master has returned? Come out quickly to welcome me!”
“Fuck, you’re all blind to miss me being up at the doorstep!”
“Where’s my father? Father, are you going to do nothing? Someone just beat your child up! Quickly break this fellow’s legs, shred him and help me vent my anger!”
The middle-aged man yelled loudly, unabashed at the fact that he was beaten up by someone.
Everyone present kept silent, seeing how angry he was. They didn’t dare to talk behind his back.
After all, all of them knew the Young Master’s character well enough. He bullies the kind yet cowers in front of the menacing. However, once his father Boss Li appears, this squandering son would become prouder than anyone else.
The sound of something cutting the wind suddenly came from above.
Everyone was shocked. Everyone present lifted their heads skywards, taken aback.
There was a silhouette riding on a lightning bolt above the clouds. He brought a big dog with him and flew through the skies at an astounding speed.
The lightning bolt rider was very young. Slightly smiling, looking refined, warm, and gentle, this fine young man was none other than Xu Que.
Once the middle-aged man saw Xu Que coming, he was scared out of his wits. The arrogance on his face disappeared in an instant as he ran towards the Blood Sea fanatically.
“Haha, trying to run?” Xu Que sneered and suddenly extended his arm. He closed his fist into a grab.
A vast, overwhelming force formed form the skies and trapped the middle-aged man, dragging him to the back.
At last, with a plop, the middle-aged man was dragged to Xu Que’s front as he lay half-paralyzed on the ground.
Xu Que smirked as he looked into his eyes in disdain, “I just let you run home, and you dare to scold me behind my back? Alright, come on, don’t you wanna teach me a lesson?”
“No, big brother, I was wrong! I was really wrong. I shouldn’t have run my mouth, I… …ah!” The way that middle-aged man begged for mercy, looking like a loser he was in front of Xu Que.
However, before he could finish, Xu Que gave him a mighty kick and sent him rolling on the ground. He broke more ribs at the spot and vomited blood again after letting out a scream.
Everyone present inhaled sharply. Horror filled their faces, and they could not believe their eyes.
You’re at the entrance of the Ghost King Palace, how dare you punch the First Young Master this ruthlessly?
Who in the world was this youngster?
Isn’t he a little too strong?
Xu Feifei suddenly called out in surprise.
Jiang Hongyan too looked at him as she left the border, a smile on her face.
“You’re here?” she asked mildly as if she already knew Xu Que would come.
“Now that’s your fault, little lady. Why didn’t you tell me that you are coming?” Xu Que promptly reached out to pinch Jiang Hongyan’s cheeks.
Jiang Hongyan smiled, leaning gracefully aside, and avoided Xu Que’s hand.
At this time, Xu Feifei raised her hand to block Xu Que. She glared at him and said, “Xu Que, what are you doing? Don’t bully my Sister Hongyan. I, Xu Feifei, am the only one to blame for this!”
“Blame your head!” Xu Que could not help but rolled his eyes. “Come on, what happened? Who is this guy scummy enough for you to chase him from the First Realm?”
“Well, he’s a despicable and lewd villain. His mouth is too dirty. I’d let it go if he only spoke badly of me, but he dared to provoke Sister Hongyan.” Xu Feifei was instantly enraged and waved her fist. She wished she could run across the Blood Sea to teach him a lesson.
“Just a quarrel?” Xu Que looked at Jiang Hongyan.
With Hongyan’s character, there was no reason for her to do this over a simple quarrel; to be in such a haste, and even chased him down to such a remote place from the first Realm.
Jiang Hongyan smiled faintly, “The quarrel was just part of the reason. The real reason was that that person carries a can of bone ashes. Ashes of an Immortal Cultivator!”
“Oh? Ashes of an Immortal Cultivator?”
Xu Que’s eyes lit up.
The middle-aged man under Xu Que’s feet was flabbergasted at what he heard. He blurted in horror, “You… What are you going to do? Those are ashes of our ancestors. You’d even want that?”
