Qin Wushuang laughed coldly. From the performance of these people, he had already made an approximate guess. A real adventurer team would not have received such disciplined training.
Qin Wushuang walked up and stopped before those two prisoners. He said coldly: "Only one of you can live. Which one of you wants to stay alive?"
"Me! I want to live."
"Me, please give me a chance! I will call you Grandfather, no, I can even call you Ancestor."
Bao Bao pushed that person away to prevent him from clutching onto Qin Wushuang's legs.
Qin Wushuang said lightly: "There is only one chance. Which one of you speaks the most truthfully, you will have more hope of attaining this chance!"
Hearing the words from Qin Wushuang, these two revealed two completely different set of reactions. One of them revealed apparent hesitation, while the other one, who had been caught by the Purple Flame Electric Beast seemed to have totally collapsed. He only kept bowing his head onto the ground and said: "I will talk, I promise that each word I say is true, not a single lie."
Qin Wushuang glanced at the other person. Although that person was also fearful and shaking all over, apparently, he did not break down. Under such extreme terror, he could still maintain his clarity.
"Bao Bao, serve them with your giant stick." Qin Wushuang said coldly, "Now, I will ask you guys a question, whoever gives the wrong answer or lies, you shall end them with your stick."
Bao Bao yelled: "Alrighty!"
"Lone, you are in charge of watching the area to prevent those blind people from coming over."
The Purple Flame Electric Beast also went to carry out his instruction.
With eyes sharp like knives, Qin Wushuang fixed his gaze on the faces of those two. He was glaring at these two with a murderous intent. Such oppression would make sure that these two would find it difficult to lie.
"There is only one chance, if you answer wrong, it will be your death!" Qin Wushuang spoke with a cold tone. To such people, he would not show a single trace of pity. If he had been the weaker party during this robbery, for sure, he would not be able to escape today's disaster alive.
"Just who are you guys?" Qin Wushuang slowly asked with a cold tone.
Hearing Qin Wushuang's question, the body of these two trembled. They looked at each other as if they trying to silently and mutually come up with an answer.
Qin Wushuang said with a cold smile: 'Before you start speaking, you better swallow the lies you've come up with and speak only the truth."
That guy who had been caught by the Purple Flame Electric Beast immediately said with a fearful tone: "I will talk! We are people of the Red Maple Human Clan of the Dispersed Praying Mountain!"
"Red Maple human clan?" Bao Bao was rather curious, "Red Maple Human Clan? Why did you guys come to this place? This is not your territory!"
Those two only pressed their lips and did not speak. Currently, they were only acknowledging Qin Wushuang's questions. If they could answer one less question, of course, they would not answer.
Bao Bao was enraged: "Answer quickly! Or else when I smash my stick, I will smash the two of you at the same time."
Qin Wushuang nodded: "Answer."
That guy got caught by the Purple Flame Electric Beast had a slim body like dry firewood. He immediately raised his hand to beg for mercy: "I will talk, I will talk."
"Originally, this area is the territory of the Deep Abyss Barbarians. It's the place where most adventurers would come. The leader of the Red Maple Human Clan sent many of our disciples to dress up as adventurers in this area, to clear all adventurers that come to this area. We also set up roadblocks, sentry points to prevent anyone from going any further into the Dispersed Praying Mountain."
After that person had finished answering, he did not forget to emphasize once: "All I said is the truth."
Qin Wushuang said with a low voice: "Why are you, the Red Maple Human Clan, killing human adventurers? You are all humans, could it be that the human adventurers have offended the Red Maple Human Clan?"
That person shook his head immediately: "The Red Maple Human Clan has never interacted with the adventurers from the human countries. This time, the higher-ups only sent us and told us to not let any trash enter the Dispersed Praying Mountain to prevent them from messing up our major undertaking. As for the exact reason, I truly have no idea."
However, Bao Bao said angrily: "Could it be that the Red Maple Human Clan intends to take over the Dispersed Praying Mountain? Coming here to do what you are doing on other's territory, this is breaking the rules of the Dispersed Praying Mountain!"
Hearing the words from Bao Bao, these two looked at him with surprise. Apparently, they were wondering how this young man knew about the rules of the Dispersed Praying Mountain.
Bao Bao glared: "What are you looking at? Who doesn't know such rules of the Dispersed Praying Mountain?"
That withered and skinny guy immediately butted his head onto the ground as if he was pounding garlic: "Yes yes, this young master has such powerful strength at his young age, you definitely must be an exceptional disciple of the Xuan Yuan Mound. These little matters of the Dispersed Praying Mountain will not be able to enter your eyes."
Bao Bao's lips twitched: "I don't need your flatteries."
Yet, Qin Wushuang did not dare to neglect. How could he not see that this guy was clearly changing the topic and direction of the interrogation?
Inwardly, the more he considered the matter the more it felt strange. He followed his train of thoughts and asked again: "How many disciples does the Red Maple Human Clan have?"
This question was rather easy to answer. That person said immediately: "There are about ten billion people. For martial artists practitioners, there are at least eight billion people. Although the population of the Red Maple Human Clan is less than the human countries, it contains all the best ones, and much stronger than the human countries."
Bao Bao's mouth twitched: "Strong? You didn't even make a rough plan before making your bluffs. In your Red Maple Human Clan, isn't the strongest at the Perfect Stage? You guys have only got a treasonous mountain gate that has the richest spiritual and natural environment. With the advantage from there, it allowed the middle ranking warriors of your clan to get stronger than the human countries."
That person immediately smiled apologetically: "Yes, yes, but the Red Maple Human Clan has many Perfect Stage warriors."
Bao Bao moved the corner of his mouth. Clearly, he viewed the Red Maple clan with disdain. Being at the Void Martial Stage at the present moment, he would not even look at the Perfect Stages.
Of course, there should be about ten Perfect Stages in the Red Maple Human Clan. There were much more Advanced Stages. Just this aspect alone, indeed, they were much stronger than any of the Upper Ranking Empires in the human countries. Additionally, the average strength of the Red Maple Human Clan was also very high. A flood of talents had emerged from one generation after another. Some of them had even been selected by sects in the Xuan Yuan Mound. This has also helped to raise their position and increase their prestige.
After a moment's thought, a trace of doubt flashed across his mind. He asked: 'Bao Bao, how's the relationship between the Red Maple Human Clan and the Deep Abyss Barbarian Tribe?"
Bao Bao said: "Although they do interact, most of the time they stay within their own territory. For sure, they do not share a close relationship. The Barbarians are savage, and the Red Maple Human Clan is cunning. None of them are good people."
Yet, Qin Wushuang said in a low voice: "People of the Red Maple are acting freely in the territory of the Barbarian People, and they aren't going after them. Don't you feel it's strange?"
"Boss, I asked him because I do indeed find it strange."
Qin Wushuang said coldly: "One side is savage and one is cunning, if they collude together, for sure they would make good partners. Bao Bao, I think that this Red Maple Human Clan is hatching some evil schemes with the Barbarians!"
As soon as he said these words aloud, those two captives trembled lightly.
Qin Wushuang saw it all with his eyes as he shouted: "Bao Bao, kill one!"
Bao Bao listened to all of Qin Wushuang's instruction. Hearing his words, he swung the giant stick and smashed the guy he had captured into a pile of mangled flesh.
Blood and bits of flesh splashed everywhere onto the face and head of that skinny and withered guy. He was scared witless as he kept yelling dejectedly: "Mercy, mercy!"
Qin Wushuang waved his hand and stopped Bao Bao's next action as he said coldly: "You guys did not just simply rob people when you blocked the way here. Let me ask you again, are the Red Maple Human Clan and the Barbarian People hatching some evil scheme!"
If that person still felt somewhat safe earlier, now he did not dare to think about lying. Immediately, he said: "I am telling the truth, us errand runners do not know much about what the higher-ups are doing. However, a while ago, the Tribal Chiefs of the Barbarian Clan had indeed come to our territory, and for a number of times. I don't know what kind of agreement they have made. But a month ago, the higher-ups of the Red Maple started to deploy an army and sent ten thousand disciples to seal off all areas that sees adventurer activity. They instructed us to kill anyone and everyone that we meet. The higher-ups commanded that we cannot even let a fly into the Dispersed Praying Mountain!"
Qin Wushuang laughed coldly: "Concealing and harboring ill-intentions."
Yet, Bao Bao was burning with anxiety: "Right now, where are those Tribal Chiefs of the Red Maple and the Barbarian Tribe?"
That person immediately cried for mercy: "This, I seriously have no idea."
"Are the Red Maple Human Clan colluding with the Barbarian People in order to deal with the Monkey Clan of the Monkey King Mountain?"
"Dealing with the monkey clan? I did not receive such orders."
However, Qin Wushuang asked: "Then, did any monkey disciples participate in your mission?"
"I also didn't hear anything about that."
Qin Wushuang gave a sigh: "That's right. Most likely, this mission is targeting the monkey clan!"
Hearing his words, Bao Bao immediately jumped up. With a tiger's roar, he swung the giant stick and smashed that person into the earth.
"Boss, the monkey clan is facing a crisis, I must return!" Bao Bao grimaced in pain as he looked at Qin Wushuang with a pair of bloodshot eyes. Revealing extreme emotions, he wanted to teleport back to the Monkey King Mountain immediately.
However, Qin Wushuang grabbed Bao Bao and said: "Bao Bao, don't rush. Whether the Barbarians and the Red Maple Human Clan is attacking the monkey clan or not, their trump cards and their strategies, you do not know about any of them. Wouldn't you be falling right into their trap by going back now?"
"Walking right into a trap?" Bao Bao was unconvinced as he yelled, "I know clearly how much power the Red Maple and the Barbarian People has. Even if they've set up a seamless net, I am not afraid!"
Qin Wushuang gave a long sigh: "Bao Bao, I am sure that the Red Maple clan and the Barbarians already know that you have evolved into the Gold Monkey King, with your ancient spiritual monkey bloodline. The people of these two clan should also know that you have swallowed the Holy Ivory Flower, right?"
"So what if they know about it, I am not scared!"
Yet, Qin Wushuang shook his head: "It's one matter whether you are scared of them or not. Yet it's another matter if they had specifically set up traps for you. Bao Bao, if these two clans have truly joined forces to deal with the Monkey Clan, for sure they have made a detailed plan before taking action. Thus, we must get ahold of or learn their trump cards."
"If we have to waste time thoroughly searching, I think it would be too late!" Bao Bao's impatient monkey trait had broken out as he was extremely irritated.
"Bao Bao, do you trust me?" Seeing Bao Bao acting so impatient, Qin Wushuang asked in a low voice
Bao Bao said: "Boss Wushuang, you saved my clan last time, of course I trust you. Or else why would I call you Boss?"
"Great! Then you will listen to me, don't expose yourself. Instead, use your methods to investigate and make sure that you know what these two colluding clans are up to. If they are targeting your Monkey Clan, we will plan our strategies. If you go back to the Monkey King Mountain now, not only would you expose yourself, you would also be alarming the snakes in the grass!"
