“Young master, what is that?” Chuxue tilted her head as she looked curiously at Zong Shou’s hand. That spiral shell-like thing could hear what the others were saying.
“Sound listening shell, grade 7 spiritual artifact. Within a million feet it could ignore any grade 4 and below spell. During the cloud desolate era, it was specifically used to spy. I let Little Gold copy it and then fix its shape to recover it but it is only able to reach 30% of its original effect.”
Zong Shou laughed, his eyes revealing a reminiscing look. Apart from the sound listening shell, there were also a see-through glasses which could ignore any wall within a million feet. In the last life, he had one in his hand. However, he didn’t dare to be a thief. In the end, his good friend borrowed it and didn’t return it. What a bad person.
Everyone in the room was silent. Not because of the sound listening shell but because of Little Gold.
Everyone looked towards the grade 8 spiritual sword that Zong Shou had gotten back.
To be able to copy the shape and solidify oneself and recover a grade 7 spiritual artificial. Then it seems like recovering this nine qilin sword wasn’t a difficult matter…
He finally understood why Zong Shou would bring back these abandoned spiritual weapons. A grade 8 spiritual artifact was worth hundreds of grade 7 beast crystals, he made a killing this time!
Especially Chuxue who was unable to hold the teacup in her hand properly, crashing onto the ground. In the past, Zong Shou always said that his protector beast was amazing but she didn’t believe him. At this point she finally did. Even if in the future, it didn’t have any other ability, just this alone was already really skilled.
Zong Shou guessed what everyone was thinking, shaking his head as he said, “It is not as overpowered as you think. This sword, even when repaired by Little Gold, can at most use 10% of its strength. Moreover, it can only last for 60 breaths…”
They all disagreed, to be use it up to 60 breaths was already really good. In the next moment, they heard the shell spread out “yes, yes, ah, how good, comfortable” moaning sounds. Like a bell, really flirty, amongst which there was also clapping sounds and think heavy breathing.
Hu Zhongyuan’s eyes lit up whilst Tan Tao’s expression didn’t change, his eyes raising slightly. Chuxue’s cheeks flushed red whilst Ruo Shui only blinked in curiosity.
Zong Shou was listening on with interest when he suddenly felt two fingers pinching and twisting at the meat by his waist. He knew that it was Chuxue revolting. Helplessly he could only change the spell and switch a position.
Then, he only heard a low voice spread from within the sound listening shell,” Zong Yuan that dog. How has the senior brother and young master treated him in the past few years? He dared to betray and join that trash prince? He doesn’t want to live…”
Everyone in the room was astonished, all looking towards Zong Shou, their eyes filled with deep meaning.
Another voice rose up, “Is it because he has some inconvenience? Or he didn’t see our contact hand signal and didn’t rush over?”
“How couldn’t he have not seen it? 8 hours later think of a way to meet here. These hidden codes were things he learned before. If he paid a little attention he would see.”
That low voice changed into a cold laugh, “Looking at how he doesn’t move a step away from that Zong Shou like a loyal follower. Half a month ago, he followed him to make noise in Xuan Mountain City. Everyone knew of that matter. He is most probably determined to join Zong Shou. Is he dumb or retarded? Following elder and young master, he has a limitless future. Why does he want to jump onto a broken boat? Does he think that with the support of Xuanyuan Tong he can take the monster king throne?”
Zong Shou blinked his eyes, so he guessed correctly what the hand signals meant. It was that room. Just as he felt delighted, the sound in the shell rose up once more.
“Say, does he already know about that matter? If not it doesn’t make sense. The elder has pampered him and loved him all these years. With his personality, he doesn’t look like such an unloyal person.”
“Impossible! That matter was really secretive and even with the ruler going all out to send people to investigate he got no result. How would someone with no power life him find out? During that battle that year, apart from my senior brother and us, the rest are dead, so there is no evidence. Everyone knew that his father died because he was weaker than the enemy. The army led by the ruler came too late to reinforce…”
Zong Shou was shocked. He originally just wanted to listen to what they said to possibly place thorns in Zhong Yuan’s heart. He heard such explosive news. Who knows what plot and schemes were within all of this.
That younger voice stopped breathing, “Since it wasn’t that matter then was it because he found out about elder tampering his speed technique? With his talent, noticing the weaknesses in his foundations isn’t weird. For him to rush to the martial ancestor realm so quickly definitely has its reasons.”
“What does this have to do with my senior brother? Side branch disciples shouldn’t be allowed to learn direct disciple skills. For senior brother to find some remnant copies of secret techniques, even if Zong Yuan found out, he should be grateful.”
That low voice, an old man’s tone, seemed to be impatient, “If we followed my wishes that year, we should have broken that kid. Senior Brother thinks his talents were not bad and wanted to let him live. Scoff…”
The veins popped out of Zong Yuan’s body, his muscles clenched tight. His lower lip tore from him biting as blood seeped out. Within the palms of his two hands were like two fountains flowing. Within his blood-red eyes, he was looking at Zong Shou with a begging expression. His face changed between green and white, his lips turning white like a dead person. His tone was without strength, “Stop playing it! I beg you, prince, stop the sound. Don’t play it anymore!”
His voice started to tremble, filled with bone-deep hatred and despair.
The sound in the shell continued to play.
“Actually senior brother intended to marry his Mother as a concubine. Unfortunately, that woman’s temper was too tough and would rather die than remarry. If she slightly cared about her Son, he had the opportunity to become our direct bloodline. Unfortunately…”
Before the words could finish, an explosive shout broke out. A purple lightning spear stabbed out and instantly reached the limit of men. Totally catching him off guard, the sound listening shell was flicked away. The sounds stopped.
Zong Shou felt really heart pained but was also shocked. This fellow was really the talent in Zong Weiran’s eyes. That spear exceeded the level of the strength of the martial path. Although he held back a little, it was still unexpected.
To continue to maintain such a spear technique was something even he himself didn’t have the confidence in doing.
Picking up that shell back into his hand. Spiritual artifacts of the cloud desolate era were made of really tough and strong materials, Little Gold also didn’t face the spear tip head-on and thus he wasn’t damaged. Only then did he really relax.
The moment he turned around and was about to scold out, he saw Zong Yuan covering his face, his body shivering. Although there was no sound, one could see tears falling between his fingertips.
…he actually cried.
Zong Shou was instantly speechless. His heart more or less felt apologetic? Thinking for a moment, he smiled, “Zong Yuan, don’t you want to personally kill that Yunxia Feng Yu and Blazing Flame Xiong Kui. We can use their heads as wine flasks? No, peeing flasks…”
Zong Yuan was startled, raising his head up in shock. Then, he saw Zong Shou flick out with his finger, and a pill flew over.
“If you want to and have the determination, then within 5 days, charge into the 4th meridian of the earth chakra level. With this earth energy pill, can you do it?
Hu Zhongyuan was immediately filled with envy. Tan Tao was also tempted. They didn’t pay much attention to Zong Shou saying about cutting off the heads of Feng Yu and Xiong Kui and using them as pee flasks.
If the heads of those two princes were so easy to chop down, others would have done it already.
The trades of the basic pills needed another 5 days to complete. Within these 5 days, Zong Shou decided to live in this Jiefu City.
Every day he would take a purple spear and a set of soft armor. These 2 spiritual artifacts were left by Zong Weiran and were actually grade 5.
Zong Shou naturally didn’t have the ability to modify anything, just adding in some stuff on their foundations. More accurately, he added 2 small formations. Luckily, these 2 spiritual artifacts were internally refined, so with his skill in the talisman and formations, he could barely achieve it.
5 days later, in the inner layer of the armor, there was a layer of dense and closely packed blood-colored runes.
The purple spear was the same. At the spear tip, there was a dragon eye sized, yellow jade pear. This was the item that Zong Shou picked up from the pile of rubbish in the Kongqi Sect storage.
“The formation on the armor along with my soul control technique, even in ten thousand troops he could still accurately control Zong Yuan’s body as long as he didn’t resist. This energy gathering pearl. along with the formation on the spear, could allow him to absorb and gather some energy in battle. Unfortunately, the chances were very little. It is best if he stored some energy first! Zong Yuan’s ability was still a little weaker. It’s best to buy a high-grade external pill.”
“And also 2 spiritual formations which are both damaged. What a headache. Oh right, my spear technique was said to be a mess by those few fellows who were also part of the seven emperors. Is it really that bad? Using spear to replace the sword. It isn’t that far off right? When I used the spear, they couldn’t beat me either. As for charging through formations, I could barely succeed. Only that spiritual technique is hard to counter and I need to prepare some talismans in advance…”
He was muttering as he looked at what he had achieved during these 5 days. Chuxue suddenly ran back into the room like she was crazy. Her face red.
“Young master! It fell, it fell!”
Zong Shou’s thoughts were broken. He came to his senses and said at a loss, “what fell? You fell down while walking?”
“Of course not!” Chuxue frenziedly shook her head as she panted, “Beast crystals, all the prices are falling! They dropped by 3 times at once, how shocking!”
Zong Shou’s brows furrowed, walking out with large steps into the trading hall of the city. Only to see that it was total chaos and everyone was panicking.
On the 2 giant screens was the information of people tossing away and selling mind stones and beast crystals. Looking out it was really eye-piercing.
