A flash of light landed at the Second Yong Master’s waist and swept away the palm-sized metal plate secured to his belt.
Xu Que did his homework. He knew that the Second Young Master had an extraordinary Magic Fighting Weapon that was meant for escaping. It was so fast that even Jiang Hongyan had some trouble keeping up with it.
Xu Que was, of course, interested in such a unique weapon.
“Eh? It’s spoilt?” Xu Que examined the small metal plate in his hand but quickly frowned.
The entirety of the metal plate’s center was charred. It had not a single drop of Spiritual Qi left, lying lifelessly like a useless piece of junk metal.
The Second Young Master smiled bitterly, “Brig brother, I had overused it when I was running for my life earlier. It’s already spoilt.”
If the metal plate still functioned, he would’ve run away ages ago. However, he considered himself lucky that he survived.
Xu Que immediately threw the metal plate away and said seriously, “I just wanted to take a look, and has no intention to rob your stuff. Take it back!”
After he finished, he stepped onto a bolt of lightning and flew past the deep remains of the Blood Sea now dry, returning to Jiang Hongyan and the others.
Buttface came up immediately and winked, “Young fellow, we’ve just arrived. Why don’t we get something to eat?”
“Eat your ass! Let’s hurry back to the First Realm. Don’t forget that we have to enter the Refined Moon Palace in two days to look for the black and white bone ashes!” Xu Que pressed Buttfac’es head down and called Jiang Hongyan and Xu Feifei to leave.
Buttface grabbed the toy poodle and yelled anxiously, “Young fellow, don’t walk that fast! Chicken dinner’s fine too!”
Xu Que shook his head and ignored Buttface. He, Jiang Hongyan and Xu Feifei made their way towards the Ghost King Market.
However, the moment they left, many people showed themselves from all corners, glaring fiercely at the Second Young Master of the Ghost King Palace.
“The heavens heard our prayers; the chance finally came for us to take our revenge!”
“This animal ruined my younger sister’s life three years ago! Now that Boss Li is dead, it’s time for revenge!”
“Fuck. The only sow I have in my house is dead. I must kill this good-for-nothing today!”
The crowd scoffed as they surrounded him; every one of them was filled with killing intent.
“You… …what are you trying to do? Don’t…don’t come near me, ah… …”
The Second Young Master of the Ghost King Palace paled immediately and trembled all over.
He would never have thought that he would fall into the hands of enemies he used to oppress, having painstakingly escaped from Xu Que’s hands moments earlier.
In the end, after some agonizing screams, the Second Young Master of the Ghost King Palace soon perished.
At the same time, Xu Que had covered quite a distance, preparing to return to the First Realm.
“Young man, a word please!”
The instant they stepped out of the Ghost King Market, an elderly voice suddenly rang from behind them.
Xu Que turned around and was slightly surprised.
It was the old man and the younger woman in a black tightfitting battle outfit. The duo caught up quickly, and the old man had a sincere smile on his face. He said, “Young man, I can’t believe that you have achieved such mastery at such a young age. I am amazed!”
“Keep it low; keep it low.” Xu Que waved as he scanned the old man.
This old man approached him time and again. Could it be that the old man found him absolutely good-looking and wanted to betroth his granddaughter to him?
Better how, how embarrassing that’d be! He’s not a loose guy!
The old man turned to flash a smile at Xu Que, “Young man, I’m here to ask for a favor.
“A favor?” Xu Que was stunned.
Fuck, how could he help? I am busy every day. I can’t just agree to assist swiftly.
“I’m not free. Goodbye!”
Immediately, Xu Que refused decisively and turned to leave.
The old man countered quickly, “Young man, wait a minute and hear me out. I saw that you are looking for the bone ashes of powerhouses. I have a way to make the best of both worlds. Not only will I help you find the strong ancestor’s bone ashes, but I’ll also bring you some good yield!”
“Ha!” Xu Que laughed and said, “Elder, are you suggesting to search for the bone ashes at the Refined Moon Palace?”
“Uh…” The elder listened, cracked a smile, and nodded. “So you are also aware of the Refined Moon Palace. It seems like you indeed are from the First Realm City.”
“Well, you can save your breath if it’s in the Refined Moon Palace. I am fully capable of finding the bone ashes and reaping good yields by myself. We have no reason to cooperate!” Xu Que laughed.
He had already struck a deal with the older women of Dong Family, to find the box and retrieve the 3-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone. He didn’t expect this old man to suddenly appear and talk about collaboration. It was unnecessary.
“Wait, young man; you will be well rewarded if you choose to work with me. Your strength is remarkable, but over the years, I have also seen cultivators much stronger than you enter the Refined Moon Palace, and ultimately, not return.” The elder said in indifference.
“Well then, what do you suggest?” Xu Que laughed.
He is, of course, clear about how dangerous the Refined Moon Palace is. Even the old women in the Celestial Realm can suffer injuries inside, making the threat plain to see.
However, with a Celestial Grade Divine Escape Emblem in hand, Xu Que was not afraid of any adventure.
“Young fellow, I have half of Refined Moon Palace’s map. While it’s incomplete, it depicts a shortcut that leads directly to the center. If you cooperate with me, we will divide all our earnings equally.” The elder opens.
“A map?” Xu Que’s eyebrows raised out of interest.
After all, he is a person who likes to take shortcuts. If he can reduce risks, he is definitely on board.
The Elder nodded: “Yes, I have personally stepped into the Refined Moon Palace hundred of years ago to verify the authenticity of the map. Unfortunately, there is an ice Valley in the center and hindered me. But with the fire I saw from you today, I knew that that ice valley was no longer be an issue!”
“So you’ve taken a fancy to my Mystical Fires!” Xu Que realized and looked at the elder with a bright smile. He said, “Elder, I’ve decided to work with you, but before that, you have to show me the map. Ah, what is with your expression? Do you think that I, a man that is full of righteousness, would steal your map?
“…” The elder quickly twitched the corner of his mouth and silently answered the words “You will” in his heart.
If he had not seen Xu Que taking revenge, he might have believed Xu Que.
But after seeing this guy’s brazenness, the elder had his guards up. How would he dare to take out the map?
“Young fellow, don’t get me wrong. But coincidently, the map is not with me right now. I’ll guide you the way then.” The elder answered with a smile.
“That’s the case. It’s all right!” Xu Que smiled politely and waved his hand to show that it was okay.
The elder had a more brilliant smile on his face and nodded, “Well, young man, back then when you are in the First Realm City…”
Before the Elder could his words when he saw a black ray flash before his eyes, with a cold on his neck; a large Dark Heavy Greatsword has rested around his neck.
“You…” The elder promptly stared at Xu Que. He had no idea that the guy was so quick to resort to violence.
However, Xu Que shivered and said with a solemn face, “Elder, don’t move, it’s dangerous! You have an invincible ancient tyrant mosquito around your neck. I had just helped you to suppress it temporarily. Where’s the map? Take the map out, I’ll use it to wrap the mosquito and throw it away!”
