“Enough!” Na Lanbing’s expression turned cold. “Liu Anting, it isn’t the time for you to make a scene.”
Liu Anting started laughing. “Make a scene? You think that what I’m doing is making a scene?”
Na Lanbing said coldly, “We are in a very dangerous location. It is clear that he is a friend and not a foe. Yet you’re trying to force him to fight with you. If this is not making a scene, then what is?”
“Very well!” Liu Anting squinted his eyes. “I might as well speak my mind. Merely by the fact that this man had the opportunity to save Huang Yiyi but did not do so, merely by him encountering that cultivator along with Huang Yiyi and still coming out unscathed, I cannot forgive him.”
“Shut your mouth!” Na Lanbing shouted sternly. “Liu Anting, you’d best not forget that I am the person in charge of this matter. I definitely will not allow you to fight him.”
A murderous intent flashed through Liu Anting’s eyes. He looked to Na Lanbing, Wei Suo and them before saying in a dense manner, “The current rotation of leadership of the Iron Policy would not be up to me, isn’t that right? Very well, then from now on, I will leave the Iron Policy! After all, I joined the Iron Policy only for Huang Yiyi. From today on, I shall break all my ties with the Iron Policy and no longer be an individual of the Iron Policy!”
“Liu Anting, you’d best consider your decision!” Once they heard what Liu Anting said, Na Lanbing and them all displayed traces of anger on their faces.
“I have considered well enough. Now, I could make my own decision, no?” Liu Anting sneered. He then turned around and looked to Wei Suo. “Since you were capable of killing Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators, you ought to not be undaring to fight against me, a mere level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator, right?”
Wei Suo was truly unable to contain himself anymore and wanted to teach this guy a lesson. However, before he could say anything, Na Lanbing immediately said coldly with a frosty expression. “Liu Anting, our Iron Policy gives our members freedom to come and go as they wish. We will not try to prevent you from leaving the Iron Policy. However, since you are now not a member of our Iron Policy and he is a friend of our Iron Policy, if you wish to fight with him, then you must first deal with me.”
‘This beauty is a pretty good person.’ Seeing Na Lanbing shielding him like so, Wei Suo immediately had a favorable impression for this dark skinned beauty.
Liu Anting laughed grimly. He did not bother to look at Na Lanbing. Instead, he stared at Wei Suo and said, “What, could it be that you, a grown man, is planning to hide behind the ass of a woman and not take up my challenge?”
Na Lanbing’s expression changed. She was also capable of seeing that Wei Suo’s martial prowess was much weaker than Liu Anting’s. She believed that even if Wei Suo was able to kill one or two Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators, it would likely be because he had relied on some sort of Magical Treasure or was lucky, he might not necessarily be a match for Liu Anting. After Liu Anting said those words, she feared that Wei Suo might be provoked and decide to fight Liu Anting.
“Sure, isn’t it merely a fight?” To her surprise, Wei Suo did not appear to be angered. He merely smiled, shot a glance at Liu Anting and said, “However, please wait a moment so that I could decide exactly which artifact I should use.”
As he said that, Na Lanbing and the other two cultivators from the Iron Policy saw that Wei Suo took out a black colored Treasure Receiving Pocket and began to take stuff out from it nonstop.
Three Rounds Liu’s machete. The short and stout daoist’s golden short spear. From the three other cultivators with the gray clothed cultivator that had been killed here, a silver colored lion’s head shaped artifact, a cyan colored wooden fish and a yellow jade-like ax… and so on. Soon, a pile of artifacts were laid before Wei Suo.
Seeing this, Na Lanbing and the other two cultivators from the Iron Policy started to subconsciously open their eyes wider and wider.
That was because it was very evident that all of these items that Wei Suo had taken out were at least half Spirit level artifacts. Items of this level, even for Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators, they would at the very most have one or two on them. Yet, Wei Suo had that many.
“Even that yellow gowned level two Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator died to him?”
What caused the expression of Na Lanbing and the other two cultivators to change even greater was that, other than some items that appeared like Magical Treasure Fragments, Wei Suo had also taken out multiple robes. There was the Dragon and Tiger Crape Myrtle Gown that the purple gowned old daoist wore, the black and white eight divinatory gown that the short and stout daoist wore, it was so much that even Wen Daoge’s yellow robe was in there.
One must know that Na Lanbing and them had been intercepted by Wen Daoge and several men that he led. Only through great difficulty did they manage to escape. The thing Na Lanbing worried about the most was actually not being caught up by this yellow colored cultivator. Never did she expect that this level two Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator had already died.
Liu Anting’s expression froze. His mouth also subconsciously dropped open.
Wei Suo deliberately took out the carcass of the Elder Ming Devouring Bug and thrown it before him. “Oh, I took out the wrong thing. This isn’t something that could be used to fight someone with.”
“Well then, I believe that these two items plus this Spirit level Magical Treasure of mine should be more or less enough.”
Wei Suo started jumping back and forth. After he muttered those words while holding the Dark Demon Blade, he picked up Three Rounds Liu’s machete and the short and stout daoist’s golden short spear. After that, he directly activated his altered robe and covered himself with a Fire Phoenix and a layer of gale.
“I’m ready now. Do you want to prepare your artifacts too?” After that, Wei Suo turned to Liu Anting and said.
“And here I was wondering why you were that confident, so it turned out that you have this many artifacts on you.” Liu Anting took a deep breathe. He did not act, instead he looked to Wei Suo with an extremely gloomy expression. “With that many powerful artifacts, I admit my defeat today. However, one day, I will definitely make you regret your deeds today.”
“What exactly did I do? Didn’t I only tell you the truth for your sake?” This time, it was Wei Suo who became depressed. He did not fear any rash fellow, what he feared the most was this sort of depressed and hopelessly muddled fellow. However, Liu Anting only took a cold glance at Wei Suo, Na Lanbing and them. Then, without saying a word, he wrapped Huang Yiyi’s corpse with his clothes and walked into the passageway behind them by himself. In merely a short instance, he disappeared from the line of sight of everyone present.
“Never would I expect him to be a person who refuse to distinguish right from wrong that allowed his emotions to control his actions.” Seeing Liu Anting leaving without bothering to take a glance back at them, Na Lanbing said to Wei Suo with an ugly expression, “You can rest assured. We are also present today. If he dares to cause troubles for you in the future, I, Na Lanbing, will be the first to deal with him.”
“With merely his abilities, I reckon he would only bring troubles on himself if he wanted to deal with Wei Suo.” Nangong Yuqing muttered.
Ever since she first knew Wei Suo, she knew that Wei Suo was no ordinary cultivator. Furthermore, in the battles in the underground tomb, even the final awareness attack from the Elder Mind Devouring Bug did not manage to petrify him. This had truly and greatly astonished her and Liu Wu.
“It was precisely this level two Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator that we were no match for. Never would I imagine that he had died in your hands.” Na Lanbing’s gaze soon stopped at the carcass of that Elder Mind Devouring Bug and Wen Daoge’s yellow robe.
“We were merely lucky. Had it not been for the appearance of these Mind Devouring Bugs, then we would’ve likely died in his hands already.” Wei Suo spoke a rare modest remark.
Na Lanbing looked to Wei Suo. “Might Brother Wei Suo give a detailed account of how you managed to discover their scheme? After all, we are still completely ignorant of their origins.”
“Most certainly.” To Wei Suo, coming to this place and obtaining the items of Three Rounds Liu and them had already brought about a fortune to Wei Suo. There was already not many things left for him to do. He nodded and then, in order to save troubles later on, rapidly mentioned about how he encountered Wen Daoge and the gray clothed cultivator, how he followed Wen Daoge and the purple gowned old daoist, how he heard them discussing about the Cyan Wind Mound, how he went to the Golden Jade Pavilion and had them transmit the news, how he got to this place, how he ran into Nangong Yuqing and them, how they were chased by the Elder Mind Devouring Bug, how they ran into Wen Daoge and how they luckily survived. The only thing he had concealed was the matter regarding the green gowned old man.
“For Nangong Yuqing to have a friend like you, that is truly a great fortune for our Iron Policy. Had it not been for you, I’m afraid that we would all be buried in here today.” Hearing that Wei Suo had pawned all of things he had to rush over so that he could warn Nangong Yuqing and exposing himself in the process, Na Lanbing and them were all extremely moved. When Wei Suo finished narrating what had happened, the three of them had stern expressions as they said, “Brother Wei Suo’s great grace is not something that mere words of thanks could repay. If Brother Wei Suo have any use for us in the future, we would definitely assist you with all our might and at the risk of our lives.”
“No, this is nothing much. I was merely unlucky to not be able to meet up with you all sooner.” Wei Suo said. “Furthermore, I’ve also obtained quite a harvest in this journey.”
“Never would I imagine that there were actually four Mind Devouring Bugs in here. One of them was even a leveled up Elder Mind Devouring Bug. Fortunately, those Mind Devouring Bugs were chasing after you all, otherwise, we would definitely be killed when we went by their nest.” Na Lanbing muttered. “Danger lurks on every side in this underground tomb. Let’s return to the surface first.”
“You all have went by their nest?” Nangong Yuqing asked in a slightly curious manner.
“When we were running away from that yellow gowned cultivator, we just happened to go by their nest. In the nest, we discovered five Mind Devouring Bug eggs. Now that I think about it, I reckon it must be because that yellow clothed cultivator knew that that location was the Mind Devouring Bug’s nest and was a bit worried, only because of that did we manage to escape.” Na Lanbing said with lingering fear.
“Discovered five Mind Devouring Bug eggs?!” When Na Lanbing mentioned that they had walked by the Mind Devouring Bug’s nest, Wei Suo did not think much about it. After all, he possessed the map for the underground tomb. Thus, he knew that the location where Na Lanbing and them had passed ought to be a place listed with the possibility of Mind Devouring Bugs appearing. However, upon hearing that they discovered five Mind Devouring Bug eggs, Wei Suo was shocked. The place with Mind Devouring Bug eggs was, without a doubt, the nest of the Mind Devouring Bugs. As for the other thing that brought shock to Wei Suo was that he just happened to obtain an Incomplete Beasts Slaving Booklet from the single eyed cultivator. He seemed to remember that the booklet contained information about how to train Mind Devouring Bugs. If he was able to domesticate a Mind Devouring Bug, then wouldn’t it be even more powerful than a Spirit level Magical Treasure?
“The Mind Devouring Bug eggs, is it possible for you to let me see one?” Wei Suo who had originally wanted to leave this place as quickly as possible suddenly turned to Na Lanbing and asked.
“Of course.” Na Lanbing nodded. The forty some year old cyan gowned scholar appearance cultivator also nodded following her and took out a black colored Treasure Receiving Pocket. From it, he took out a Mind Devouring Bug egg and handed it over to Wei Suo.
‘Holy fuck! Isn’t the difference between an egg and a grown Mind Devouring Bug too great?’ Once he received the Mind Devouring Bug egg, Wei Suo immediately shouted in his mind.
The Mind Devouring Bug was as disgusting and terrifying as something could come to be. However, the Mind Devouring Bug egg was only an oval shaped chicken egg-sized pink colored egg with a crystal-like shell. It was actually an extremely adorable looking thing.
