Each of the three ancient talismans had a special symbol. One of them was the "Water Cloud Talisman" that Qin Wushuang had seen before. He didn't know that Zhu Dazhong also carried one.
For the remaining two pieces, one of them appeared golden. Qin Wushuang predicted that this should be that "Golden Life Protection Talisman." The other one emitted a blue light. Although Qin Wushuang did not know the truth behind it, he knew it was extraordinary. These three talismans should all be special.
There were five pills in a bottle. Qin Wushuang immediately recognised it as the Nine Reversal Sun Pills after smelling it. Feeling overjoyed, Qin Wushuang remembered how his teacher, Tan Zhongchi had given him three pills. He gave one to Shang Ye, one to his teacher for his injuries and still had one left. This Zhu Dazhong had five of them. Wouldn't he have all six pills altogether?
Of course, Qin Wushuang would not miss these treasures. He put all six Nine Reversal Sun Pills together. Then, he moved to check the other goods.
The next item was an offensive weapon, a chain spear at the Advanced Stage. Qin Wushuang had experience with this type of weapon. Of course, he took it as his own. Although he disliked this weapon, it would be nice to keep it. He would always have a use for it in the future.
There was a set of armour. From the helmet to chestplate and combat boots, it was a set. Unfortunately, these were at the Middle Stage. It seemed that Zhu Dazhong did not use it and had perhaps kept it as a reward for his disciples. Naturally, Qin Wushuang took it.
Additionally, there was a book of secret techniques that recorded insights regarding beast training. It was written by the Archaic Mysteries Sect. Training beasts was one of the major specialities of the Archaic sect.
In the Three Eastern Empires, the Archaic Mysteries sect were outstanding in terms of training beasts. They were especially proficient at training beasts of the earth attribute. After looking through it for a moment, Qin Wushuang also felt it was a good thing and put into his own storage.
After checking through these goods, only one last ancient book bound by threads remained. The name of the book was "Mysteries of the Tian Xuan Land"!
"Such a book exists?" Qin Wushuang was extremely curious and glanced through the pages. Inwardly, he was excited: "Good stuff."
In this catalogue, it mentioned all the spiritual taboo places in the Tian Xuan Land. All the large and small territories were recorded. And it also mentioned many of the legendary figures, important events and major historical events of the Tian Xuan Land.
Qin Wushuang clicked his tongue in wonder: "This Zhu Dazhong managed to collect such a rare thing, so refreshing. I wonder if this ancient book is unofficial history based on verbal records of different events or are verified records."
After going through Zhu Dazhong's goods, Qin Wushuang finally brought out Young Master Zhao. He undid his mute acupoint and threw him onto the ground. Then, he said with a smile: "Young Master Zhao, do you remember me?"
Young Master Zhao was stunned when he heard Qin Wushuang's voice. However, Qin Wushuang's mask showed him as a completely different person. "You.. How do you…"
Qin Wushuang said with a cold smile: "Tsk tsk, you are speaking exactly the same way as Zhu Dazhong, before he died. Tell me, who is Zhao Heng to you?"
That Young Master Zhao trembled: "Head Zhao is dead?"
Qin Wushuang said lightly: "You guys tried hard to scheme against me and shift all the blame onto me. You want to use me as a scapegoat to lure the others way, so you guys can sit back and grab the harvest. This is a good plan. Too bad, Zhu Dazhong had died before he could make a move. I don't like to listen to rubbish, let me ask again, who is Zhao Heng to you? If you open your mouth again and it's not an answer to my question, I will cut off your nose. If you are lying, I will rip out your eyes at the same time."
Young Master Zhao's entire body trembled as fear filled his eyes: "You…"
Then, he realized that he should answer the question to protect his nose: "Zhao Heng is my grandfather. I am the direct grandson to the Assistant Leader of the Nine Palace Faction. Sir, it is all a misunderstanding. These were all Zhu Dazhong's ideas."
"Is that so?" Qin Wushuang asked lazily.
"That's right, sir. Back at the restaurant, Zhu Dazhong felt that you guys caused him to lose his face and thus held a grudge. He hatched a bunch of vicious schemes against you. It has nothing to do with me. Besides, I am not in a group with Zhu Dazhong. He belongs to the Archaic Mysteries sect in the Heavenly Lake Empire, and I belong to the Nine Palace Faction."
"Archaic Sect? Nine Palace?" Qin Wushuang pretended to be stupid, "It seems these two powerhouses have no connection? Why are these two colluding together?"
Young Master Zhao cried with resentment: "The Archaic did this, and they dragged the Nine Palace into this. They want to take over the Eastern Empires and pulled the Nine Palace into this dirty water, and caused my grandfather to be injured when someone struck his dantian…"
Young Master Zhao only want to shove the responsibilities and blame onto Zhu Dazhong. He kept blaming him for everything.
Qin Wushuang only wanted to extract some information by keeping Young Master Zhao alive. Besides, since he possessed such a high status, he could use him during some crucial moments.
At the moment, he asked: "A while ago, it seemed that the Nine Palace invaded the Stargaze Palace? Ha ha, I am glad to see that the Nine Palace faction is dealing with the Stargaze Palace. It just happens that I don't see eye to eye with Zhu Buqun of the Stargaze Palace!"
He was speaking the opposite of the truth to draw out more words from Young Master Zhao.
This Young Master Zhao was a completely useless person who had grown up in a sheltered bubble. Besides training, he did not have much brains. Most importantly, with his life in the hands of his enemy, he could not imagine that the enemy lying to him.
Naturally, he was overjoyed at the turn of events upon hearing Qin Wushuang's words. He immediately said: "Sir, since you don't like the Stargaze, we are all the same side! Indeed, the surging water has flooded the Dragon King's Temple! Mister, why don't you let me go and we can discuss how to deal with that Stargaze Palace!"
Qin Wushuang said arrogantly: "With your little skill, why do you think you deserve to work with me?"
Young Master Zhao said apologetically: "Since you are able to kill Head Zhu, it shows your power. Indeed, I am not qualified to work with you. However, my sect, the Nine Palace is the number one sect. In the human countries, there are no powerhouses that we cannot beat."
"Is that right? I heard that Zuo Tianci, the Head of the Nine Palace is something. I wonder, how is his strength?"
Young Master Zhao praised him: "I'm not bluffing, in the human countries, I am afraid that no one is able to overcome the power of Head Zuo! Besides, Head Zuo came from a strong background. It seems that he is a relative of some strong powerhouse in the Xuan Yuan Mound. Thus, in the human countries, no one dares to disobey the order from the Nine Palace!"
Qin Wushuang's heart sank upon hearing Zuo Tianci's relation to the Xuan Yuan Mound.
"Head Zuo had this kind of relationship?" Qin Wushuang could not help but be curious.
Young Master Zhao said with a smile: "Mister, if I've guessed correctly, you also have a relationship with the Xuan Yuan Mound. Those two girls should be guests from the Xuan Yuan Mound, right?"
Qin Wushuang's expression darkened: "How do you know?"
"All of this was inferred by Head Zhu."
Qin Wushuang waved his hand and pretended to be impatient: "I'm not interested in that. I only want to know, when does the Nine Palace plan to make a move on the Stargaze Palace?"
Young Master Zhao said with a depressed look: "They are waiting until my grandfather's injuries have been healed. Most likely, it will be delayed until the Exploration of the Endless Eastern Sea in two years time."
Qin Wushuang cold smile lingered on his face: "I see, good. Young Master Zhao, what is your name?"
"My name is Zhao Rui. The Rui is written with the characters "wise" and "farsighted."
"Zhao Rui?" Qin Wushuang's words contained a trace of mocking, "It seems that your parents had some expectation when they gave you this name. Too bad you did not meet their expectations."
Zhao Rui could not understand: "What do you mean?"
Qin Wushuang only smiled and did not say anymore. He was mocking Zhao Rui's grandiose name, yet he was such a mindless simpleton. This Zhao Rui still did not understand.
Qin Wushuang resealed Zhao Rui's mute acupoint and threw him back into the storage sack.
Just as Qin Wushuang was about to get up, suddenly, that white sable rushed out in fear. It whispered besides Qin Wushuang's ears.
Qin Wushuang's expression changed as he shouted: "Since you are here, then stop hiding."
Accompanied by three rhythmic and eerie laughs, three figures rustled out from the exterior. Then, they surrounded Qin Wushuang within a circle.
Qin Wushuang glanced around lightly. These three were dressed strangely. Each of them wore a strange sleeveless tops with bare, yet muscular arms. Strange stripes were drawn on their face and each of them wore a hat with three peacock feathers.
"Are they human?" Qin Wushuang felt strange inwardly. These people hold three tall iron fork. Qin Wushuang had never seen or heard people with such appearances.
"Who are you?" Qin Wushuang asked in a low voice.
He saw that these three were at the Upper Sky Realm. However, they would not pose any threat to him. Only, with their strange appearances, Qin Wushuang realized that they must have an extraordinary background. Suddenly, he remembered the records about the Dispersed Praying Mountain.
There were three major powerhouses in the Disperse Praying Mountain—The Monkey Clan of the Monkey King Mountain, the Barbarians of the Underground Abyss, and the Human Clan of the serene and deep Red Maple Mountain.
Since these three dressed in such strange outfits, could they be the Barbarians?
Qin Wushuang asked lightly: "You three, what are your intentions, surrounding me?"
One of them laughed and swore with human language: "All you useless human trash, when you came to the Monkey King Mountain, why are you running around and not going after the Spiritual Infant Fruits?"
Stunned, Qin Wushuang did not expect these three Barbarians to ask this question.
"Who told you that I came to the Monkey King Mountain for the Spiritual Infant Fruits?" Qin Wushuang asked lightly, "Besides, it seems like it's none of your business whether I look for the fruit, right?"
That Barbarian yelled: "How could it not be our business. The more human trash there are, the more you guys can cause trouble. And the more trouble you will bring to the Monkey Clan. The more trouble the Monkey Clan faces, the more advantageous our Clan will have to take the Holy Ivory Flower!"
Qin Wushuang was completely stunned, the Holy Ivory Flower? What is that? These three were indeed Barbarians!
That Barbarian yelled: "Since you trash are not going, then become fertilizer!"
After he had finished speaking, the other two Barbarians sneered and growled. Next, all of them charged at Qin Wushuang!
