When the Red Dragon Empire was mentioned, Qin Wushuang could not help but feel angry. He only wanted to slaughter his way to the Nine Palace and rip Zhao Heng to pieces.
While he was lost in his thoughts, that voice said: "Lucky one, to advance or waste your life safely in the human countries, this is your decision. The right and wrong step will determine your fate. This is the end of this Circle. Hopefully, we can still meet again at the Fourth Circle!"
After he had finished, that light withdrew itself and slowly, it disappeared without a trace. Qin Wushuang thought about those last words. These last words did not seem important, but should hold some hint.
"Regardless, I will pursue the Void Martial Stage and explore the Fourth Circle!" Qin Wushuang made up his mind and stood up.
He wandered around and grabbed the "Fury Dragon Soul" that was entrenched around the formation. This Fury Dragon Soul Whip was many times better than his snake-shaped soft whip. Regardless of the shape or interior design, it was much more superior. Qin Wushuang had no reason to not take a weapon that was at the Void Martial Stage.
Then, he went for that set of Void Martial Stage armour. The first time he touched it, it was as light as the wings of a feather and felt like light muslin. Qin Wushuang could not believe it. Such ordinary thing was a set of body armour at the Void Martial Stage? Regardless, since it appeared in this formation, it should not be inferior goods. Qin Wushuang also took it.
As for the ten maps scrolls, Qin Wushuang saw densely packed words as soon as he opened it. It made his scalp itchy. After looking through it for a moment, he closed it.
"For this thing, I should look through it when I have the time. With ten map scrolls, how could I figure out all of it without three or five months of time?" Qin Wushuang closed the map and was about to walk out. Bao Bao and the Purple Flame Electric Beast walked over. The Purple Flame Electric Beast kept talking nonstop while he walked. After such a long time of rest, he had basically restored his language skills. It seemed that he was discussing something with Bao Bao.
Bao Bao still showed his optimism that even the collapsing sky would not matter. He smiled: "Boss Wushuang, did you pick up some good things. I saw your happy face."
However, the Purple
Flame Electric Beast said: "Boss, don't be so quick to be happy. For sure, the owner of this formation is not some good person. There must be a condition for giving you so many good things."
The Purple Flame Electric beast held a deep grudge. Qin Wushuang could also understand. After all, no one would be happy about being sealed for a few thousand years.
Qin Wushuang said with a smile: "Let's not talk about it now. You two have walked a few cycles around the inside and the outside, did you check the terrain. How many roads are there leaving this cave?"
"There are two ways. One is going up the cliff, the other one is a secret passage. It seems that we must open the mechanism."
Qin Wushuang could not help but laugh. Inwardly, he thought that the designer of this Seven Deadly Formation Arrays was lazy. He had designed the same mechanisms and two exits. One exit in the light, and the other in the dark.
However, Bao Bao said: "Boss Wushuang, where is this cave located? Could it be, we have travelled to a Spiritual Taboo place?"
Qin Wushuang said with a smile: "It's in a human country, the Red Dragon Empire."
Bao Bao's eyes lit up: "The Red Dragon Empire, wouldn't that be…"
Qin Wushuang nodded: "Yes!"
However, the Purple Flame Electric beast did not know the details behind their words as he opened his eyes widely: "What are you guys talking about? What about the Red Dragon Empire?"
Bao Bao said: "The Red Dragon Empire is Boss Wushuang's foe."
The Purple Flame Electric Beast rolled his eyes and yelled: "Foe? Boss, who is your foe, let me kill them. They dare to act against with my boss with such boldness!"
Bao Bao said: "Hey, they got three Perfect Stage. If you go alone, can you do it?"
Stunned, the Purple Flame Electric Beast laughed dryly: "Three Perfect Stages. That's not good. However, Bao Bao, didn't you say that our boss is also strong? You cannot beat him with that bow? By the way, didn't you boast that you were a Gold Monkey King, are you bluffing?"
After interacting with the Purple Flame Electric Beast for so long, Bao Bao and he had already become familiar with each other and gotten used to his manner of speaking. He was not angry: "I do want to boast, but why did the god make me too pretty? Ah, there is nothing I can do. Boss Wushuang, did you hear
hear that? Old Purple is envious of me."
The Purple Flame Electric Beast said with frustration: "What, so what if you are the Gold Monkey King? Would you dare to fight me?"
Currently, Bao Bao had not yet consolidated his strength. Although he was at the Perfect Stage, he had not unlocked all of his power. Thus, he was weaker than the Purple Flame Electric Beast, this thousands of years old vicious beast, in regards to combat power.
However, Bao Bao was much more flexible as he smiled and said leisurely: "Old Purple, me and Boss Wushuang are friends, you are his little brother. We are on the same team. Team members don't beat their fellow team members."
"It's not for real, why are you scared of a match?" The Purple Flame Beast spoke with a tone that yearned for battle.
Bao Bao scratched his back and chest lazily. Then, he said carefreely: "If you have such strength, you should just fight with the Nine Palace, man."
The Purple Flame Electric Beast called: "Let's go. They dare to fight with the boss, I'm going to tear them down."
Bao Bao glanced at Qin Wushuang: "We must listen to the boss."
Bao Bao had redirected the subject of the conversation. Although he wanted to cause a scene at the Nine Palace Faction and to have some fun, he passed the choice to Qin Wushuang.
Qin Wushuang said in a low voice: "Besides beating the grass to scare the snakes, there are no benefits to creating a ruckus at the Nine Palace Faction. It's nearly impossible for us three to destroy the entire Nine Palace. To the outside, the Nine Palace announced having three Perfect Stages. However, as the most powerful sect in the human countries, they definitely have some unknown trump cards. Thus, to fight with the Nine Palace, we must lure them out of the cave and destroy each of their trump cards. It's not a smart choice to fight with them on their homeground. Unless, one of us is at the Void Martial Stage."
The Purple Flame Electric Beast said with unwillingness: "Is that it? We are in their territory, it would not be my style to turn tail and run."
Qin Wushuang spoke after a moment of thinking: "Of course we will make a move, but not under the name of the Stargaze Palace."
Purple Flame Electric Beast cried out: "Then it's easy, let me do it. Bao Bao, would you dare to come?"
Bao Bao said: "Of course! Old Purple,
Old Purple, if you have the guts, toss a fire at the Nine Palace and burn their mountain gate. That would be great."
Purple Flame Electric beast twitch his mouth into a smile: "Bao Bao, I like your idea."
Bao Bao smiled evilly: "I won't go for the easy route, it will be terrific. Boss, why don't you wait for us at this cave?"
Qin Wushuang said in a low voice: "I will come with you all. I will wait for you at the imperial capital of the Red Dragon Empire. It's alright for you two to cause some ruckus, just don't linger in battle."
Bao Bao agreed: "Don't worry, boss. I am not going to lose control. What happens if Old Purple act on impulse?"
Qin Wushuang stared at the Purple Flame Electric beast: "If you are going to go, you must promise me that you will never act on impulse. You must hold your ground during crucial moments. We have not declared war with the Nine Palace. When we return, we shall practice some team formation techniques to fight with them. That way, we will have a much higher success rate."
The Purple Flame Electric beast said helplessly: "Alright, Boss. Since you said it, I will not kill the people of the Nine Palace. I will focus on destroying their houses."
Qin Wushuang nodded: "This time, our goal is to distract the Nine Palace Faction and give them some pressure. You will retreat immediately after finishing this goal. It would be best not to expose yourselves."
Qin Wushuang's decision was firm. Regardless of Bao Bao or the Purple Flame Electric Beast, he did not wish for them to get trapped at the Nine Palace.
For this battle, they would either win for sure, or hold it back.
All three of them left via the secret tunnel. They opened the trap and closed it after. With the experience from the Second Circle, Qin Wushuang was like a fish in the water.
After going past layers of underground tunnels, they finally walked out of the Divinity Dragon Mountain Range. Thistles and thorns were growing everywhere. Indeed, it was a remote place. No wonder it was chosen as the location for the Third Circle.
When they exited the Divinity Dragon Mountain Range, they still had to go through the thousand miles of barren lands which was filled with miasma.
"This place is filled with all different types of miasma, no wonder it has not been explored." Qin Wushuang nodded inwardly and was deeply impressed by the owner of the owner of the Seven Deadly Formation Arrays' ability to choose locations.
For the First and Second Circle, the Green Jade and the Great Cang Mountains were all in the Subordinate Countries. Naturally, the would not draw much attention.
And this Third Circle was located in such a desolate place. Naturally, they would not worry about being discovered.
After walking for two or three days, they arrived at the imperial capital of the Red Dragon Empire. Of course, these two spiritual beasts at the Perfect Stage had many ways to enter the city. However, Qin Wushuang needed to change his identity. Fortunately, it would not matter since he had a lot of masks.
After changing his masks, Qin Wushuang headed into the imperial capital. He only parted ways with the two spiritual beasts after he had decided on a rendezvous location.
Qin Wushuang had come to this imperial capital to gather some information and to see what movements the Red Dragon Empire had made. He especially wanted to know the movements of the Nine Palace.
However, what left Qin Wushuang uncertain whether to laugh or to cry was seeing pictures of his earlier masked appearance he had used to infiltrate the brothels had become listed as a special grade wanted criminal. His appearance and unique traits were all drawn to the tiniest details.
Apparently, the case of assassinating Zhang Baidang had been discovered. With the intelligence network of the Nine Palace, they had soon estimated the details and traced it all the way back to the Nine Raven Empire. Naturally, they understood everything and learned that the death of Zhang Baidang should have been a person who had taken a mission from the Nine Raven Temple.
This way, it was reasonable to put out a wanted sign.
This time, Qin Wushuang did not feel the pressure from last time. He was much more relaxed. For the past few days, he did not show any high-profiled actions besides checking into his hotel. To put it bluntly, he was waiting for the news of Bao Bao and the Purple Flame Electric Beast. As soon as these two guys had returned, he would retreat immediately.
This time, he only wanted to cause some trouble for the Nine Palace and distract them . For the final battle, he would rather pick a location in the Three Eastern Empires!
This day, just as Qin Wushuang was returning to the inn, he suddenly saw a figure from the corner of the street looking at him with a faint smile. His expression had shown such familiarity.
