2053 Recognize as Owner
“What?” Shangguan Jing was confused. Tang Ke’s name couldn’t tempt her, so what could attract her to come?
Chu Liuyue was silent for a moment before she suddenly laughed. “I just wanted to see what exactly happened between Mr. Su and Senior Tang Ke back then.”
Shangguan Jing was dazed for a moment. Then, he suddenly recalled that Chu Liuyue had quite a few holy weapons, and they were all Mr. Su’s.
“Could it be that the previous commotion—” A guess suddenly emerged in his heart.
Previously, he and Wei Ze tried using the Sharp-Edged Halberd to open the door, but it was all to no avail. This was because the noise behind the door was originally not produced by the Sharp-Edged Halberd.
Yue’er Girlie said that…
Chu Liuyue didn’t say a word, but to Shangguan Jing, this reaction was a tacit agreement.
He widened his eyes slightly and was muddled for a moment. How did this happen? Could it be that this isn’t Tang Ke’s tomb but Mr. Su’s? However, the people from the Wei family keep saying that this is Tang Ke’s tomb! If they didn’t have some evidence, they would not be this confident. But now—
Shangguan Jing furrowed his brows and did not speak further as he just followed Chu Liuyue down. Perhaps we will quickly know what the truth is!
A tiny sound suddenly came from the back. It was as if something broke, yet not really.
At the same time, there seemed to be a force ripple. But before it could spread, it was suppressed.
Detecting the commotion, Chu Liuyue and Shangguan Jing both looked forward.
“What… just happened?” asked Shangguan Jing strangely. He was near to it and felt clearly that the ripple came from Rong Xiu.
The corner of Rong Xiu’s lips curled up, and he smiled faintly. “Nothing. The Sharp-Edged Halberd just recognized its master.”
Shangguan Jing could not conceal his shock and said, “What?!”
Chu Liuyue was also surprised. “Just now?”
Rong Xiu acknowledged it and picked up the Sharp-Edged Halberd in his hands.
Even if the surroundings were bright, one could still clearly see the rays of light on it looking magnificent and extremely sharp.
“Originally, the process of recognizing the owner was rather troublesome. However, this Sharp-Edged Halberd has absorbed quite a bit of lightning force, and it’s only a step away from awakening, so it saved quite a bit of time and effort.”
Chu Liuyue raised her eyebrows slightly. “In that case, you really have to thank Master Wei.”
Rong Xiu laughed. “Of course.”
Hearing them talk about how he took one of the ten holy weapons, the Sharp-Edged Halberd, so casually, Shangguan Jing was speechless. Only a voice in his heart crazily yelled, Holy weapon! That’s a holy weapon! It recognized an owner just like that?! The key is that it’s such a big issue. Can the two of you give more of a reaction?! What am I supposed to do now?
Chu Liuyue looked at Shangguan Jing. Seeing his strange expression, she asked concernedly, “Ancestor, what’s wrong?”
“I-I’m fine…” Shangguan Jing took a deep breath in. Seeing that the children are so nonchalant, I can’t be too embarrassed!
Rong Xiu asked, “Perhaps… Ancestor also wants a holy weapon?”
Chu Liuyue nodded in understanding. “I see… Then, why don’t we first pass them to you if we find any more holy weapons later on?”
Shangguan Jing’s foot slipped, and he immediately held the wall beside him to forcefully stabilize himself. “Ahem! N-no need! Such a treasure is based on fate. If I don’t have that luck, even if I hold it the whole time, it’s useless. Y-you guys don’t have to care about me…”
Didn’t that happen to Wei Ze previously? Even though he obtained the Sharp-Edged Halberd, it still didn’t recognize him as the owner after using it for so long.
On the other hand, Rong Xiu just casually held the Sharp-Edged Halberd, and it directly had an owner.
There was no use no matter how jealous or envious other people were.
When they talked, the few of them didn’t purposely lower their voices. Thus, Wei Ze—who followed them in—quickly heard this.
When he heard that the Sharp-Edged Halberd had recognized Rong Xiu as its owner, Wei Ze was struck by lightning! I obtained that with so much difficulty! There is only this one holy weapon in the entire Wei family over the past thousand years! In the end, the moment Rong Xiu took it, it became his in the blink of an eye!
“Rong Xiu! You’re too overboard!” Wei Ze finally could not hold himself back and reprimanded him. “I’ve respected you as His Grace and am very polite with you, yet you do this?!”
The two parties weren’t far apart. Besides, this passageway was very bright, and they could see each other.
Rong Xiu softly laughed. “Master Wei, holy weapons have souls, and they choose their own owners. When it was previously in your hands for so long, you couldn’t be its owner, which only proves that you don’t have fate with it. Now that this Sharp-Edged Halberd has chosen me as its owner, am I supposed to reject it?”
“You!” Wei Ze was exasperated.
However, Rong Xiu’s every word made sense, and he couldn’t refute.
If he were to blame somebody, he could only blame himself for not having this luck!
Wei Ze could not help but be filled with regret. If I knew this earlier, I wouldn’t have taken it out! Now, Tang Ke’s tomb was opened by Chu Liuyue, and the Sharp-Edged Halberd became Rong Xiu’s. I’ve suffered a great loss!
Chu Liuyue raised her voice slightly. “Master Wei, since we’re already here, let’s save some effort. Who knows what danger we’ll meet below? After all, you’re the Wei family head. It won’t be good if you sacrifice yourself here.”
Wei Ze was outraged and felt stifled, his face turning green. These two people are even more infuriating than the other!
A few people from the Wei family softly advised, “Master, we’re not sure of the situation down there. Why don’t we wait and see first?”
“Yeah! After all, Shangguan Yue was the one who opened the door. No matter what, we have to first find out what’s going on here. What do you think?”
If they broke relations with the other party here… who knew what would happen?
Upon hearing this, Wei Ze knew that they made sense, so he could only temporarily suppress his anger. “I will take it back sooner or later!”
The passageway recovered its silence again.
Only the crowd’s breathing and footsteps were left.
Even if the surrounding light was bright… Perhaps due to their fear and worry of the unknown, the lower they went, the more nerve-racking the atmosphere was.
The people behind slowly followed.
Without turning around, Chu Liuyue knew that those people outside had all come in. This time, it would be difficult if she wanted to fight for something more.
After some time, they finally reached the last step.
She looked forward and was suddenly dazed.
