Chapter 423: Assaulting the Villains?



The Trial of the Ancient Desolate Tower is about to begin? Does that have something to do with Jiang Zimo and Xia Xiyan? Xiao Chen opened his eyes.

Interest flashed in Xiao Chen’s eyes. He intended to ask more about it but…

“Young Hero, it is your turn.”

At this moment, a pretty young girl came over and spoke to him softly.

It looks like I can only let it go for now. However, I now have a clue of the Ancient Desolate Tower. It should be easy to learn more later. Xiao Chen got up and followed the servant girl into the room ahead.

When the cultivator in green saw Xiao Chen get up, he was deep in thoughts as he watched his back. Earlier, he had not noticed Xiao Chen.

However, now that the cultivator in green garments saw Xiao Chen’s backs, he started thinking.

He is wearing white robes and is an Inferior Grade Martial King. He looks to be younger than twenty. Unfortunately, I did not see him carrying a saber. He must have it in his spatial ring.

The cultivator in green muttered to himself. “I should follow him closely. If he is a bladesman, chances are is that he is that person.”

---

Within the appraisal hall, an old man took a sip of tea. When he saw Xiao Chen enter, he smiled and said, “My humble self is the Flowing Wind Pavilion’s Old Ma. If Young Hero intends to sell something, please take them out to show me.”

Xiao Chen nodded but said nothing. He pointed his Universe Ring in an empty space in the hall and a large pile of objects tumbled out.

When the sound stopped, a one-meter-high pile of miscellaneous items appeared in the middle of the hall. Old Ma nearly spat the tea he was drinking.

Old Ma managed to stop himself from spilling the tea as he said with a somewhat unsightly expression, “Little Brother, are you here to mess around? Do you know what kind of place my Flowing Wind Pavilion is? How dare you show me a pile of trash?”

Clearly, the other party did not think that all of these items were valuable. He felt that Xiao Chen was here to make a fool of him.

Xiao Chen sat down calmly and said, “You will know if it is really a pile of trash or not when you take a look for yourself.”

When Old Ma saw Xiao Chen’s confident manner, he hesitated. He squatted down in half disbelief and casually picked up a bottle of Medicinal Pills.

Old Ma opened the bottle, and a fragrance wafted out. He sniffed it, and his expression changed. He said, “This is a Rank 6 Medicinal Pill. If a Martial Saint uses one, it can increase their cultivation greatly. It is worth ten thousand Inferior Grade Spirit Stones.”

Right after Old Ma spoke, he quickly picked up a yellowing secret manual. This was an Inferior Grade Earth Ranked Cultivation Technique. It could be used up to the Martial King realm. It was worth a hundred thousand Inferior Grade Spirit Stones.

“There are ten Inferior Grade Earth Ranked Spirit Weapons here! This is a three-hundred-year-old Snow Ginseng! Here is a Battle Armor, and this is a Superior Grade Earth Ranked Martial Technique. There is an Inferior Grade Secret Treasure here as well!”

With each sentence Old Ma uttered, his expression changed further. How was this a pile of trash? He had judge these items wrong.

Although each individual item was not extremely valuable and could not stir any interest in him, with the number of items here, their total value would be astonishing. There were at least a thousand items.

For so many miscellaneous items to appear on one person, he had to have either robbed a strong clan or killed many high ranked cultivators.

Old Ma felt astonished. Xiao Chen seemed no older than twenty. Regardless which was the case, the strength of his youth was unfathomable. He was not as simple as he looked.

Old Ma no longer dared slight Xiao Chen as he had before. He stood up and cupped his hands, “I am sorry for the previous offense. This old man judged too hastily. I hope that Little Brother will forgive me.”

Xiao Chen said indifferently, “Never mind; just help me appraise these quickly. I am only interested in business and nothing else.”

Of course, it was not realistic to rely on only Old Ma to appraise everything.

Old Ma called over a servant girl and gave her some instructions. After an hour, ten young appraisers emerged from the back door of the appraisal hall.

Old Ma explained, “I have summoned them from the other branches. Don’t look down on them for being young. They should have no problems appraising your items.”

Xiao Chen nodded and did not object.

After two hours and the arduous effects of the eleven appraisers, all of the miscellaneous items had been appraised.

The ten appraisers from the branches took their leave, and soon, only Old Ma and Xiao Chen occupied the hall.

Old Ma handed over a list and said to Xiao Chen with a fatigued expression, “Little Brother, take a look. The total value is three million Inferior Grade Spirit Stones. If you change them to Medial Grade Spirit Stones, it would be 25,000. You understand the reasons already, I believe.”

Xiao Chen looked through the list and expressed no objection. Xiao Chen was indeed aware. Naturally, he would not say anything.

Old Ma smiled gently and said, “That is good. Take out your Ancient Desolate Pass, and we will sign the contract. After that, we can give you the Spirit Stones immediately.

Xiao Chen was stunned. He did not expect to need the Ancient Desolate Pass when making such a transaction. He could not help but feel a little depressed, “I do not have an Ancient Desolate Pass yet. Can we still complete the transaction?”

Old Ma frowned slightly. Clearly, he was somewhat astonished. Unexpectedly, this youth is new to the Ancient Desolate Land. He has not even made an Ancient Desolate Pass.

“This makes things slightly difficult. It is not that this old man wants to make things difficult for you, but without an Ancient Desolate Pass, the tax you have to pay for such a large transaction is quite substantial,” Old Ma explained gently.

Since it was a problem of money, it was easy to deal with. Xiao Chen said, “How about this? Follow the list and write it as 25,000 Medial Grade Spirit Stones. However, I will only take twenty thousand Medial Grade Spirit Stones.”

This transaction of miscellaneous items was an unexpected income for Xiao Chen. It did not matter if he earned more or less. If he had to make an Ancient Desolate Pass, that would make things problematic.

Old Ma immediately understood. He understood Xiao Chen’s generosity. Thinking about it, he had probably obtained these goods by killing others and was in a rush to get rid of them.

However, Old Ma reminded, “Think about it carefully. It does not take much time to make an Ancient Desolate Pass. You will save five thousand Medial Grade Spirit Stones by doing so.”

Xiao Chen shook his head and said, “There is no need. I have made up my mind.”

After the two signed the contract, Old Ma revealed boxes of Spirit Stones and gave them to Xiao Chen to count. With a casual sweep of his Spiritual Sense, he sensed that the number was correct. So, he tossed them into his Universe Ring.

Xiao Chen’s Universe Ring had far more available space now. The number of Medial Grade Spirit Stones now reached at least 150,000. Furthermore, he had millions of Inferior Grade Spirit Stones and a hundred extremely valuable Superior Grade Spirit Stones.

Xiao Chen walked out of the appraisal hall and looked around. He noticed that the cultivator in green had not left yet. Furthermore, when that cultivator saw him, his eyelids twitched.

That’s weird. Normally, most people only take fifteen minutes to conclude their transactions. Logically, he should have left long ago.

Xiao Chen noticed that the other cultivators who chatted earlier were all gone, replaced by cultivators he had not met.

He knows about the matters on Boulder Island. He must be suspicious of me, Xiao Chen paid attention to him and headed downstairs without any change in his expression.

Not long after Xiao Chen left, his Spiritual Sense picked up on a figure following him stealthily. It was the cultivator in green.

This person is a Superior Grade Martial King. If he makes a sneak-attack, it will be some threat to me. However, there is no need to worry since I have already noticed him.

Coincidentally, he knows about the Ancient Desolate Tower. If he has ill intentions against me, I can capture and question him.

Thinking of this, the corners of Xiao Chen’s lips curled up. He walked forward unhurriedly, pretending he knew nothing.

Soon, Xiao Chen found a rather desolate alley. When he noticed the sparse number of people and desolate environment, he nodded. I’ll do it here.

“Bang!”

Just at this moment, two Tiger Fiend cultivators suddenly jumped out from both sides. They were tall and stout. Soon, they surrounded Xiao Chen.

These Fiends were over two meters tall. They blocked the sunlight and cast a large shadow. They were the Tiger Fiends Xiao Chen had offended earlier.

The Tiger Fiend who Jiang Zimo had chased away earlier emitted killing Qi from his entire body. He walked over to Xiao Chen and smiled coldly, “Brat, I told you to hand over a thousand Medial Grade Spirit Stones, but you refused. Now, I will cripple your legs and force regret down your throat.”

“Is that so? Unfortunately, you are not capable of such a thing.”

Xiao Chen smiled faintly, Jiang Zimo had guessed correctly. With the flip of his hand, the Lunar Shadow Saber in his Universe Ring instantly appeared in his grasp.

The four Tiger Fiends were Medial Grade Martial Kings. When working together, they were quite strong.

Unfortunately, with one glance, Xiao Chen could tell that they were not the core cultivators of the Fiends. They did not have strong Cultivation Techniques or Martial Techniques. If Xiao Chen used his full power, they did not stand a chance.

After fifteen minutes, the four Tiger Fiends lay on the ground, mourning pitifully. Wounds of various sizes covered their bodies, occasionally flickering with electricity.

In compliance with Jiang Zimo’s request, Xiao Chen was not too heavy-handed. The injuries looked horrifying, but they were not severe. He only taught them a lesson.

“Scram! I will only comply with Jiang Zimo’s request once. Don’t let me see you again.”

Xiao Chen returned the Lunar Shadow Saber to its sheath as he snorted coldly.

The few Tiger Fiends felt relieved of a huge burden. They knew they had kicked an iron board. They scurried up and fled.

“Not bad. Excellent Saber Techniques. You fought one against four and still held an overwhelming advantage.”

The cultivator in green stood on the alley wall. Xiao Chen had not noticed his arrival. The sunlight shone from behind him, obscuring his appearance.

Xiao Chen smiled faintly, “After following me for so long, you finally could not resist.”

The cultivator in green shrugged his shoulder non-committedly. He was not surprised that Xiao Chen had noticed him. He asked, “Were you on Boulder Island a week ago?”

Xiao Chen did not reply. He simply took out the peak high-rank Blood Demon’s Demon Core and said, “You must be looking for this!”

The cultivator in green smiled and said, “Very good; you can die now. I will hand your head over to the Holy Fire Manor for a reward. That would be the best way to maximize your value.”

After the cultivator spoke, he leaped down from the wall. Then he sent out two sharp fist winds at Xiao Chen as he dropped.

Xiao Chen drew his Lunar Shadow Saber again, and electric light flickered on the snow-white blade. Xiao Chen hacked the fist winds apart with his saber.

“Giant Whale Palm!”

The cultivator shouted, and faint mist filled the ally. The ground turned soft and waved like water.

Xiao Chen became unsteady and started moving with the water.

What a powerful state of water. This person is no ordinary Superior Grade Martial King. No wonder he is so confident.
