Soaring Of Galaxia Chapter 658
Luo Zhong jogged towards Yan Qiansui and bowed to him. "Senior Brother Yan, how come you are here?"
Yan Qiansui and the others did not wish to expose their identity. When they saw Luo Zhong throw himself at them, inwardly they were unwilling to talk to him. However, considering the strategic approach the Heavenly Punishing Villa had towards the Heavenly Punishing Villa, it would not make sense if they were to ignore him completely. At the moment, he said with an indifferent tone, "I should be asking you this."
Luo Zhong scratched his head and chuckled; however, a flash of cunningness went across his brows. "Ha ha, isn't this Ten Thousand Flower Valley hosting some sort of open challenge to invite grooms? I just want to try out my luck I guess."
"You? Invited to be a groom?" Yan Qiansui smiled bitterly. With your moral integrity, you want to be the invited groom? He was not being suspicious of Luo Zhong, but thought it rather strange if the Ten Thousand Flower Valley had called him.
Upon seeing Yan Qiansui not doubting him, Luo Zhong felt pleased as he probed further, "Are you also here for the open challenge as well?"
Yan Qiansui said with a not so fond tone, "Do you think I am someone that needs to go for the challenge?"
As soon as he said these words, Lei Hong and Xin Wuwang on the side could not refrain from laughing. Only Xin Wuji kept a calm expression as he fixed his gaze towards the front of the Ten Thousand Flower Valley.
Luo Zhong was not an idiot. When he saw that the people next to Yan Qiansui revealing out of the ordinary behaviours, he felt somewhat ashamed of his own inferiority. He smiled apologetically. "If Senior Brother Yan is to step out, ha ha, of course you will be invincible. Senior Brother Yan, I will leave you alone."
Yan Qiansui gave a snort and said lightly, "Go, don't say unnecessary things, understand? Just pretend you didn't see us and do not expose our identity."
Luo Zhong chuckled. "Of course, I will not talk about this even if I were to be killed." After he had finished talking, he walked down towards the slope obediently.
Xin Wuji shot a glance at the leaving silhouette of this Luo Zhong and he said, "This kid is not very honest, his eyes showed to be crafty and his words are not honest. Are all the people of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect such unreliable people?"
Yan Qiansui laughed. "Your highness, for such a little figure, even if he is lying, I do not want to spend my energy wondering about it. Who cares."
Xin Wuji said, "He is a martial artist of the Xuan Yuan Mound and he did not receive the invitation of the Karakorum Immortal Clan. Don't you find it odd he has come here?"
Yan Qiansui was stunned. "Your highness… what do you mean?"
Xin Wuji gave a slight sigh and shook his head. "Never mind."
Upon seeing Xin Wuji's actions, Yan Qiansui did not dare to speak of anything. He changed the topic, "Your highness, what exactly is this Emei Daoist Sect doing? It's just inexplicable!"
"Inexplicable? This is a smart move," Xin Wuji retorted. "The female martial artists of the Illusion Heavenly Lake do not take part in marriage. They use disciples looking to return to a normal life and invite grooms so they can beguile the disciples from of all despots to participate and to connect through marriage. In fact, this is an action of coaxing powerhouses and expanding invisibly."
Yan Qiansui was stunned. After some thinking, it did make sense.
Qin Wushuang had been observing Xin Wuji and the others coldly. When he saw the appearance of the disciple from the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, he was already becoming somewhat suspicious. As he saw him leave, the cloud of doubt inside Qin Wushuang's mind was raised even more. He sent his voice to Jiu Fang Yunfei. "Brother Jiu Fang, wait here for me, I am going to follow that guy and see where he goes."
Jiu Fang Yunfei nodded in accordance.
Qin Wushuang walked down the slope and pretended to be strolling without a destination. In fact, after that Luo Zhong had went up the slope, Qin Wushuang had collected his presence through the Observant Finger Jade Plate. Therefore, although Luo Zhong had disappeared at a fast speed, Qin Wushuang was not in a rush at all.
When he was sure suspicion would not be raised, he followed the direction where Luo Zhong had left. This Luo Zhong had left the slope with a quick speed as he kept walking towards the depth of the valley. If Qin Wushuang had not possessed a much higher strength, it would've been difficult for him to track him.
Fortunately, Qin Wushuang did not have to track like everyone else by following right behind him. When he locked on to Luo Zhong's position, he approached him at an unhurried speed.
The more he got close to him, the more Qin Wushuang was being careful. Fortunately, he already possessed great skills at hiding himself. When he had approached Luo Zhong's position, he was still not worried of getting discovered by the other party.
Behind a pile of thistles and thorns, there was a hidden mountain cave. Luo Zhong went passed the thistles and thorns and went inside. Qin Wushuang approached from a dark corner and started to use his spiritual perception to hear next to the cave.
"Senior Brother Luo Yi, you have good eyes. It's truly Yan Qiansui. The other voice seemed to be one from the Sound of Thunder Sect. I do not know the other two, yet one of them appears to show off an extraordinary manner. It seems that even Yan Qiansui was afraid of him," Luo Zhong explained in full detail.
Luo Yi asked with a low voice, "You didn't get tracked by them, right?"
"Ha ha, don't worry. They did not doubt me and did not really welcome me. When they asked me why I am here, I told them I am here for the open challenge."
"They believed you?" Luo Yi asked.
"Yan Qiansui did not seem to be suspicious. However, that guy with the most awe-inspiring manner seemed to not be interested in me at all. He didn't speak, so I don't know if he believed me or not."
Luo Yi probed him on the person's appearance as Luo Zhong described him. Luo Yi raised his eyebrows with surprise. "Could it be, Xin Wuji, the son of the Heavenly Emperor?"
"No way?" Luo Zhong's heart sank and began thumping. Thinking back, if he was not Xin Wuji, who else would make Yan Qiansui so afraid?"
"Senior Brother Luo Yi, he… this will not effect us, right?" When Luo Zhong heard he was Xin Wuji, the son of the Heavenly Emperor, he could not but help to feel somewhat afraid.
"You didn't ask what their intention was in coming here?" Luo Yi could not refrain from asking.
"I did, however, Yan Qiansui did not sound as though he was here for the open challenge. Whether he is coming for that treasure or not, I didn't ask."
"Could you not have asked through a roundabout way?" Lui Yi asked with an annoyed tone.
Luo Zhong revealed a face as if was wailing at a funeral. "That Xin Wuji revealed such a strong aura, I did not even dare to stand there for too long, not to mention asking. Senior Brother Luo Yi, in that situation, I could not ask too much. I am afraid that if I had asked too much, I would have exposed myself first."
In fact, Luo Yi could understand. It was rumored that Xin Wuji possessed the strength at the peak of the Common Mysterious. He was an elite warrior that was one step away from the Supreme Dao Stage and was on par with their Head Dao Warrior. When such a figure appeared before you, it was not strange for Luo Zhong to have such a reaction.
"Alright, regardless of their intention, I've decided to not wait anymore. I will enter the Ten Thousand Flower Valley first. Luo Zhong, stay here to receive Third Dao Warrior." Luo Zhong made up his mind and decided to take this risk out of desperation.
"Senior Luo Yi, the Ten Thousand Flower Valley is not open yet. If you go now, most likely you will be caught by people of the Emei Daoist Sect!"
Luo Yi said angrily, "If we are one step late and wait for the barrier of the Ten Thousand Flower Valley to open, what advantage would we have when everyone crowds in? The fact of the matter is more important, making the first move will give us the advantage. Luo Zhong, you tell Third Dao Warrior if anything bad happens to me, please take care of my family. If I can make a great contribution, our Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect will rise and make a comeback!"
Luo Yi's tone sounded extremely determined in which his words made Qin Wushuang who was standing on the outside frown. What exactly was this Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect scheming? Could it be they had scouted some treasure within this Ten Thousand Flower Valley?
Qin Wushuang had interacted with this Luo Yi before. He knew that although this guy shows strength while weak inside, he is sharp but petty-minded. He was more intelligent than that Luo Ting. At least in a crucial moment, he knew when to back away and when to move forward.
Qin Wushuang felt rather puzzled. If this Ten Thousand Flower Valley truly had some treasure, how did the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, that resided in the faraway Xuan Yuan Mound learn about it?
Additionally, upon hearing Luo Yi's tone, this treasure seemed to be extraordinary. If they were to acquire it, they could allow the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect to make a comeback. Since this was something that allowed Luo Yi to speak such feverish words, certainly this treasure was related to the Supreme Dao. Or else, what would the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect have to talk about making a comeback?
After Luo Yi had made his decision with Luo Zhong, he walked out of the mountain cave. Qin Wushuang did not wish to reveal himself yet, so he decided to let Luo Yi go first.
He was rather curious what this Luo Yi was scheming.
Only when Luo Yi had walked further, Qin Wushuang summoned the Sky Pilfered Mole and instructed him, "Mole, follow that guy that just walked away. Do not startle him, but see where he is going. Once you have precise information, inform me immediately. Do not get discovered by him and do not clash with him."
The Sky Pilfered Mole was extremely flexible as he went to follow him after receiving the instruction.
With a flash, Qin Wushuang scuttled into the cave and saw Luo Zhong pacing back and forth in the mountain cave. When he heard footsteps, he said with a joyful tone, "Senior Brother Luo Yi, did you change your mind?"
Qin Wushuang gave a low-pitched laughter, "Yes."
Luo Zhong heard that this voice did not sound right. When he raised his head, a bursting flash had shot forward and wrapped around him. As swift as a viper, it had wrapped Luo Zhong's throat immediately.
Luo Zhong was frightened stiff as he looked at his guest with astonishment.
Qin Wushuang's hand was wrapped around the Fury Dragon Soul Whip. He pulled Luo Zhong over and asked coldly, "Do you wish to die, or live?"
Luo Zhong did not possess enough courage. Under such a situation, he said without hesitation, "To live, to live!"
"Then be obedient if you want to live." Qin Wushuang swung the Fury Dragon Soul Whip casually and threw Luo Zhong's body to the stone wall of the mountain cave. Then, he hooked him with the tip of the whip and caught Luo Zhong's body.
"Let me ask you, who are you? Which sect do you belong to?" How could Qin Wushuang not know Luo Zhong's identity? He just wanted to see whether this guy was going to tell the truth or not.
Luo Zhong said without hesitation, "I am a freelance martial artist, I don't belong to any sect, I…"
Qin Wushuang gave a cold sneer. As if flying a kite, he flung the Fury Dragon Soul Whip and smashed Luo Zhong's body to the ground, then again to the ceiling of the mountain cave. Tossing him high and low, he threw him a dozen times to the point where Luo Zhong had become confused. His five viscera and six bowls seemed to be flowing out.
"I will give you one more chance. If you still lie, don't think about living."
Luo Zhong begged him, "Sir, spare my life. I am willing to tell the truth, I will tell the truth."
"Speak, who are you?"
Luo Zhong said with a trembling voice, "I… I am not a martial artist of the Illusion Heavenly Lake. I come from the Xuan Yuan Mound. I am a disciple of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect in the Xuan Yuan Mound."
Qin Wushuang asked deliberately, "Martial artist of the Xuan Yuan Mound? You are also here for the treasure?"
"The… Treasure? You know about it?" Luo Zhong showed a face full of astonishment and amazement.
Qin Wushuang said lightly, "Stop with the nonsense. How could you, a martial artist of the Xuan Yuan Mound, have learned this information?"
Qin Wushuang was extremely curious of the source to the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect's information. Due to so much unsolved mysteries, Qin Wushuang would always feel a strong sense of uneasiness if he were not to find out the truth.
