Hearing this, the System was overjoyed and hurriedly said, “Look at you, you’re always so lazy. Why’d you have to wait till now to tell me?”
“Oi, what do you know? Your flying sword is too fast. Who can keep up with your farming speed outside? It’s really a pain to get you a guard…” Fang Ning said with justice on his side, “However, it’s different. You can’t fly, but you still need to fight these monsters, so having a guard will come in handy.”
“I see, it seems that the reason wasn’t that you were being lazy.” The System hesitated.
“That’s exactly right.” Fang Ning secretly wiped off his non-existent sweat. The System was already two-years-old, and it was not easy to fool it as it was in the past. Fang Ning had just scored a rare success.
“So, how’re you going to set it up?” Sir System wondered.
“It’s seemingly far away, but actually close at hand.” Fang Ning pretended to be profound.
“Hehe, I get it…” Sir System said proudly.
“Huh, you really got it?” Fang Ning was worried that the System was acting smart again and hurriedly confirmed.
“Of course, I saw that little Long Fang slither over earlier. I can’t waste that labor. It’s a demon spirit, and can be counted as a protective treasure. Furthermore, there are 11 others like him. They’re too wasteful on that little lass, so I’ll borrow them for now.” Sir System said rightfully.
“Oh, you’re right.” Fang Ning nodded.
On the camp at the shore, the people saw the Azure Dragon turn back into a person and approach them.
Saki Yamanashi watched carefully and could not help but ask Black Robe a question that had been hidden in her heart for a long time.
“Uncle Black Robe, do you know when Lord Azure Dragon put his clothes back on?”
“Uh, his clothes are all transformed by magical energy, so he’ll naturally have clothes to wear after transforming.” Black Robe half-heartedly explained.
Vigilante A quickly came ashore and soon returned to everyone’s sight.
“I’ve heard everything you said earlier. There is currently a ban on space and magic here, and perhaps even wisdom in the future. Thus, I’ve decided to centralize everyone’s spiritual treasures, temporarily strengthen them and form a temporary ‘Treasure Guard’.” Vigilante A said righteously.
“Hey, who gave you the right to take away our personal treasures? This is robbery. As a hero, how could you do this” Black Robe could not help but get angry.
Vigilante A gave him a cold look. Black Robe shivered, remembering the taste of that slap from before.
However, he did not intend to back off. That was because, without his black robe, he really would die.
“If you’re not willing, of course, you can quit. However, you won’t enjoy the protection of the Treasure Guard.” Vigilante A lightly said.
Qiao Anping immediately agreed, “Since the Venerable One has such good intentions, we’ll naturally be happy to do so. I’ve just tidied up the treasures of those members that were sacrificed, and there are a few that are spiritual. I’ll hand them all to the Venerable One, including my three protective treasures…”
Qiao Zishan followed up and handed over a piece of jade, saying, “This jade pendant is very spiritual and should meet the Venerable One’s requirements.
“I don’t possess any high-level treasures. I only have these eleven demon spirits, and the other Big Cotton Ball which I gave to Miss Daqing as an escort…” Qiao Zijiang hesitated.
“It doesn’t matter. Once I strengthen them, there’ll be no difference between them and other artifacts.” Vigilante a lightly said.
Black Robe was dumbfounded. ‘Were these people stupid?
‘With just a few words from Vigilante A, they all handed over their protective treasures? They really are fools among fools!’
“Hmph, as expected of someone walking the path of devils. You’ll never understand the concept of trust…” Qiao Zijiang said disdainfully.
“Hmph, trust is the precursor of betrayal. You bunch of fools…” Black Robe retorted.
“Uh, Lord Azure Dragon, I don’t have any other treasures. I only have this Scripture of Great Ordeal that the Devil Lord personally transcribed for me. After reading it aloud for a year, it has already gained sapience. Would this do?” The young lady, Saki Yamanashi, asked weakly while holding a pitch black book.
“No problem.” Vigilante A nodded.
‘A bunch of fools.’ Black Robe’s point of view was strengthened again.
After a while, Vigilante A collected the treasures and stood in front of the fish-grilling rack.
At this time, the rack was already completely empty, and Chong Daqing was currently sleeping on the Big Cotton Ball.
It looked like it was here for vacation, not to hunt for treasures or fight over arcane realms.
“Hey, this Daqing does seem a little like a saint.” Fang Ning could not help but sigh after seeing this.
“It’s only lazy and gluttonous, how can you associate it with saints? If you’re gonna call anyone a saint, it’s gotta be me instead. I’m the saint among all Systems- Saint System.” The System said jealously.
“Eh, what do you know? Daqing has already entered the realm of not fighting. Saints don’t contend, and no one in the world can contend with them. Can you do that?” Fang Ning said disdainfully.
“What? If you don’t fight for anything, how can you live well? If I don’t fight for treasures and experience points, would they take the initiative and come to me instead? I think this is just another excuse for your laziness.” Sir System said plausibly.
“Damn it, you’re accusing an innocent person without any basis. What I’m saying are all the words of past sages.” Fang Ning was flustered.
He definitely would not admit that that was exactly what he thought…
“What sages, you fabricated all that yourself. Stop saying nonsense, I’m going to fight for that treasure from Daqing. It won’t fight, right? Then just give it to me.” Sir System said rightfully.
Thus, Vigilante A walked up to Chong Daqing and said, “Daqing, wake up. We agreed before that after you ate grilled fish, I need your help.”
Chong Daqing flipped over, got up, and used its forelimb to rub its eyes before coming to its senses.
“What do you need help with? The fish you grilled were too little, they weren’t even enough to fill the gaps of my teeth. Make some more for me.” Daqing said in dissatisfaction.
“Take out three to five hundred sapient treasures from your jade bracelet. I want to establish a Treasure Guard, to prevent accidents.”
“Ah, three to five hundred? Plus they all have to be sapient? Do you think I’m some sort of Treasure Saint? Your Dragon Clan Leader might not even have that many. I’ll just give you three.” Chong Daqing said angrily.
Then, it took out three different treasures from its silver jade bracelet. There was a green zither, a brown writing brush, and a black and white landscape painting.
“Uh, my elder sisters gave them to me in the past because they wanted me to learn more about the four scholarly arts 1 . They’re all sapient, but I’ve never used them before. Who would want to learn those kinds of things? I’d rather spend my time to eat more delicious food. I’ll give these three to you.” Chong Daqing said casually.
“The four scholarly arts, but where are the chess ones?” Vigilante A reached out to take the items and asked.
“Uh, about the chess set. Before I descended, I exchanged the pieces one by one for food to eat…” Daqing said, embarrassed.
“What a waste of precious resources.” Vigilante A shook his head.
Then, he sat on the ground and started to refind the so-called Treasure Guard.
