Fortunately, Bao Bao had always respected Qin Wushuang. After he listened to his words, he finally nodded: "Boss Wushuang, I will listen to you. But I am really anxious inside!"
Seeing Bao Bao had calmed down to some extent, Qin Wushuang nodded: "Bao Bao, is the Monkey King Mountain closer to the headquarters of the Barbarian Tribe or the Red Maple Human Clan?"
Bao Bao said: "The Barbarian Tribe is closer to the Monkey King Mountain. The Red Maple Human Clan resides in the far north of the Dispersed Praying Mountain and is connected to the Xuan Yuan Mound. Half of their territory is in the Dispersed Praying Mountain and the other half actually extends into the Xuan Yuan Mound."
Qin Wushuang said in a low voice: "Ok, Bao Bao, since you excel in the underground technique, you are most suitable to scout for information. Lone and I will travel along the way and when you have acquired some precise information, we will meet up at a location. The best-suited location would be somewhere between the headquarters of the Monkey King Mountain and the Barbarian Tribe."
Bao Bao nodded: "Ok, this place is not too far from the Monkey King Mountain and the headquarters of the Barbarian Tribe. Ahead of us to the west, there is a valley. Let's meet there."
"Ok, no time to waste, let's go our separate ways!"
Bao Bao nodded and his body twisted on the spot as he returned to his original fluffy appearance. This appearance also seemed much more gentle and would not cause people to be alarmed for the moment.
"Boss Wushuang, you guys should also be careful. Since the Red Maple Human Clan is colluding with the Barbarian Tribe, there are undoubtedly many sentry points along the way."
Qin Wushuang said with a smile: "Just go, Lone and I will take care of these matters."
The Purple Flame Electric Beast twitched his mouth: "I am only afraid that there is only a low number of them. The more people they've got, the more exciting it would be to tear them down."
Bao Bao nodded and he twisted his butt as he scrambled underground.
Qin Wushuang calmed his emotions and cleaned up the battle scene. After he had destroyed all the corpses, he called out to the Purple Flame Electric Beast and said: "Lone, let's go."
The Purple Flame Electric Beast answered: "Alrighty!"
Like before, the Purple Flame Electric Beast acted as Qin Wushuang's ride and they sped rapidly towards that valley in the west. Along the way, Qin Wushuang acted cautiously and evaded many sentries. They arrived at the specified valley by nightfall of the second day. After he had found a place to set up camp, Qin Wushuang started to sit down and accumulate his strength.
The Purple Flame Electric Beast did not slack off as he patrolled the area for enemies. He had been working all day until night time when he reappeared before Qin Wushuang: "Boss, there are also a few hidden sentries in this valley, should I take them out?"
However, Qin Wushuang asked: "Did they discover us?"
The Purple Flame Electric Beast was stunned: "They could not discover us with their little skills!"
"Then let's not alarm them so as to prevent waking a snake in the grass. Currently, the most important thing for us to do is to remain hidden, killing a few nameless soldiers is pointless."
The Purple Flame Electric Beast laughed and was somewhat regretful. He said in a depressing voice: "Ok, Boss, are you going to do some solitary training? I will protect you."
"Don't walk around randomly and just stay concealed here. Wait for Bao Bao, I think it will take him about three to five days to scout for information. At the fastest, he will regroup with us tomorrow."
However, the Purple Flame Electric Beast said: "Boss, I think you are being too careful. Let say, whatever those Barbarian Tribe or the Red Maple Human Clan is planning, we should just tear them into eight pieces. This is too much trouble, it's not fun and exciting."
Qin Wushuang smiled lightly as he was not unfamiliar with the temperament of the Purple Flame Electric Beast.
The Purple Flame Electric laughed coolly: "Boss, since you are not talking, are you acknowledging my words? Or are you not taking it into consideration."
"What do you think?" Qin Wushuang countered with a question.
The Purple Flame Electric Beast said with a laugh: "I think you are acknowledging me, but you are too shy to admit it."
Qin Wushuang gave a long sigh: "Lone, it seems that after a thousand years of being sealed, your brain still has not cooled down. Of course, this matter does not really concern you, and you would not mind the details. However, to Bao Bao, this involves the life and death of the entire Monkey Clan. Not a single mistake can be made."
"Boss, didn't Bao Bao say that regardless of the Barbarian Tribe or the Red Maple Human Clan, they do not have any Void Martial Stage warriors? Since they don't have any Void Martial Stage warrior, we should just go ahead and kill them all. With us three, for sure we would be invincible and kill all that comes before us."
Qin Wushuang said: "If it's that easy to kill all of them, how could this place be called the Dispersed Praying Mountain? For the Red Maple Human Clan and the Barbarian Tribe, wouldn't they have considered Bao Bao, this major factor? Since they have undoubtedly considered him in their plans and still dared to carry it out, would you believe that they did not make any preparation?"
The Purple Flame Electric Beast laughed dryly: "Even if they are prepared, we are not scared. I refuse to believe that they can fight against Bao Bao, he is at the Void Martial Stage."
Qin Wushuang waved his hand: "Alright, let's not argue here. We will know the truth as time passes."
A human and a beast spent the night in this valley. On the next morning, the sentries in the valley started to wander around.
Fortunately, the strength of Qin Wushuang and the Purple Flame Electric Beast had far surpassed these little fishes. Even if they only lightly concealed their presence, they were not worried about getting seen.
This way, another day passed. As the sun was going down the mountain, suddenly, Qin Wushuang felt a subtle movement beneath his feet. Feeling inwardly joyful, he watched as Bao Bao scrambled out of the ground.
"Bao Bao, how did it go?" Qin Wushuang immediately asked.
An extreme fury hung on Bao Bao's face as he growled: "Indeed, the Red Maple Human Clan is colluding with the Barbarian Tribe. They have already assembled an army at roughly three hundred miles away from the Monkey King Mountain and are prepared to attack. This time, all eight Perfect Stages of the Red Maple and the five Tribal Chieftains of the Barbarian Tribe have come out. They are planning to sweep through the Monkey King Mountain and loot all of our precious fruits and treasure."
Qin Wushuang gave a long sigh: "It seems that the Holy Ivory Flower has stimulated them too much. Bao Bao, at your Monkey King Mountain, just how many more treasures do you have that would drive them to such greed. Could it be that you still have another Holy Ivory Flower?"
Bao Bao smiled bitterly: "Boss, the Holy Ivory Flower is a ten-thousand-year holy treasure. I've already swallowed it and no such treasure remains. It may take a few ten thousand years or even hundred thousand years before it reappears again. Besides, it might not even appear at my Monkey King Mountain again."
"Then it's unreasonable for them to attack the Monkey King Mountain." Qin Wushuang sighed, "No one would get up this early if there were no profits to be had. Since they are not after the Holy Ivory Flower, then they are going to take over the Monkey King Mountain, to take this treasure site for themselves. Thus, they could take over the resources from there. After all, the ten-thousand-year holy treasure possesses a great allure to them."
When he said here, Qin Wushuang asked: "Bao Bao, did you see the elite warriors of those two clans?"
"I saw them from far, but I didn't get close. They were extremely sly and set up mechanisms, traps, and formidable formations all around them. The Red Maple Clan excels at setting up formations. I feel that even as a Void Martial Stage warrior, it would be hard to escape if I were to be trapped by their formations."
Qin Wushuang nodded: "That's right. If they invaded the Monkey Clan recklessly without relying on anything, it would seem strange. Bao Bao, they have calculated everything, including you. As long as you dare to enter their formations and attack them recklessly, they will make you suffer heavily."
Bao Bao gnashed his teeth: "Boss, what should we do now?"
Qin Wushuang picked up a random branch lying on the ground and started to draw in the dirt. He was drawing a map of all the important chokepoints in the Dispersed Praying Mountain. While he drew, he kept analyzing: "Look, this is the Monkey King Mountain. If they are to attack the Monkey King Mountain from all directions, the main force would be those elite warriors. At the Monkey King Mountain, since the Barbarian Tribe has already invaded once, they should be knowledgeable of the terrain. Although your monkey elders and elite warriors are present, compared to the elites of these two clans, for sure there are significant differences, right?"
Bao Bao had to admit: "There are many elite warriors from the Red Maple and the Barbarian Tribe. Although my clan has a lot of good people, compared to their joint forces, there is a difference. It would be difficult even if we want to defend."
"Bao Bao, can you be sure that the Barbarian Tribe and the Red Maple Human Clan has sent out all of their elite warriors?" Qin Wushuang asked again. This was a very important question.
Bao Bao nodded and said with a determined tone: "Boss Wushuang, I am sure about this!"
"Great!" After receiving his verification, and with a moment of thinking, he asked again in a low voice, "Bao Bao, then I would like to ask you, regardless of the Barbarian Tribe or the Red Maple, do their clans have a holy place like the Monkey Clan, a restricted area?"
"Of course they do. Each headquarters all have their own important places. Just like the human sects, you guys all have restricted holy areas."
"Then could it be that, if such a holy area or forbidden place was to be destroyed or invaded, would it be a great shame?" Qin Wushuang furthered his question.
"Of course, the Red Maple Human Clan value their legacy greatly. As for the Deep Abyss Barbarian Tribe, they have their own religion and a totem temple for worshipping. If it got destroyed, it would be the same as destroying their religion."
When he said here, Bao Bao was doubtful: "Boss, why are you asking this?"
Qin Wushuang laughed: "If that's the case, this will be easy. Bao Bao, you excel in the underground technique. If you travel at your full power, how long would it take for you to reach the Red Maple Human Clan, the furthest place?"
"Two days is enough!"'
Ok, if we go to the underground abyss of the Barbarian Tribe, most likely it would not take two days, right?" Qin Wushuang asked with a smile.
Bao Bao was shocked: "Boss, you mean?"
A strange smile emerged from the corner of Qin Wushuang's mouth: "Bao Bao, if we recklessly charge into the Monkey King Mountain now, they would just wait calmly and open their arms, waiting for us to come in. They hold the initiative. To resolve the calamity of the monkey king mountain, we must turn a passive situation into an active one!"
"How do we do it?" Now, Bao Bao was also fired up by Qin Wushuang.
"It's simple, since they all have their weakness, we will just attack their weakness. Bao Bao, go to the Red Maple Human Clan and attack their holy place with your full power. Then, you will let go of a few so they can send the main force here a report. If the elite warriors of the Red Maple Clan learn that their home got attacked while they were here, for sure they would come running back with reinforcements. At that time, you can use the chaos to attack them. Before their formation can be activated, you will launch a surprise attack to kill one or two. This way, you will cause their entire plan to become wasted. Didn't you say that the Red Maple is good at setting up formations? For sure, when a formation lacks a few key people, the formation would not have as much power. By that time, whether you are to attack or make peace, the Monkey Clan will have a much greater position!"
"And as for me, I will kill my way to the headquarters of the Barbarian Tribe. We will burn down their temple of worship with fire. How could the Tribal Chief of the clan just stay put and watch?"
Bao Bao laughed: "Great, Boss, this is such an evil scheme. Ha Ha, but I love it!"
