Chapter 188: 10Th On The Sky List

Report Chapter

Two people were seated inside a s.p.a.cious, empty room with only two seats.

One of them was Lu Qubing, who was wearing casual clothes, and the other was a middle-aged man in a traditional robe.

Although traditional robes had been a rare sight ever since the apocalypse, the man didn't look out of place in the room.

The pot of water next to the two men had already turned cold and the chess pieces before them were inextricably locked in battle.

"The vice-chairman has already dispatched nine golden emblems!" the man in the traditional robes lamented. "It must be a really grand occasion!"

Lu Qubing chuckled as he clutched his cup and sipped the jade green tea.

"He's currently got people searching frantically for you all over the place. I've had a few of them ask around here three times already. Are you really not going to show up personally?" the man in the traditional robe asked softly.

Lu Qubing shook his head. "What will I achieve by going out? I can't hand out the golden emblem in my hands, can I? Plus, if that kid doesn't back down, imagine how embarra.s.sing that will be for me!"

The other man's lips curled up. "What you're saying is completely wrong! If it were not for your secret support, would that kid even be so brazen?"

"Brazen? You know who the brazen ones are!" Lu Qubing snorted. "Now that the situation has been blown out of proportion, it's time that certain people showed some restraint!"

As the two men were talking, someone walked in quietly and handed Lu Qubing a paper note.

Lu Qubing took the note, scanned it and shook his head. "Shi Tiaochen managed to gather nine golden emblems, but he still didn't dare make a move."

"When you put it this way, it sounds like you are a little disappointed that Shi Tiaochen didn't do anything," the man in the robe teased.

Lu Qubing shook his head as he said, "Although Shi Tiaochen is a good person, he is kind of indecisive. Which is exactly the case this time!"

"This could also be good. It would really be troublesome if that kid went berserk and killed Shi Tiaochen."

The robed man smiled but didn't say anything else.

"Eh!" Lu Qubing's originally smiling face froze. As he read the paper in his hand, a cold glint flitted across his eyes.

"What's wrong?" the robed man, who seemed to detect a change in Lu Qubing, asked suspiciously.

Lu Qubing smiled grimly. "The Martial G.o.d's third disciple has a wide circle of acquaintances indeed. Even he was invited over!"

Lu Qubing rose to his feet as he spoke. The robed man now managed to see what was written on that piece of paper.

"Sky Main Avenue, Feng Yinglie!"

Although the note was very simple, the robed man understood immediately. His expression suddenly turned grave.

"What are you going to do?" he asked Lu Qubing, who was about to leave.

Lu Qubing didn't turn back as he said, "I'm going to stop the kid. It's not like you don't know what sort of person Feng Yinglie is. If he runs into Feng Yinglie, nothing good will come out of it!"

"But you've already promised several people that you will not get involved in this matter!" the robed man reminded him. "If you head over there and save him, this matter will turn into an even bigger deal! There is a possibility that a huge chasm will form between the 13 Eastern Cities!"

Lu Qubing remained quiet. He was no longer the rash young man he used to be. He knew very clearly that he had done everything in his power to contain this issue. If he got involved personally, there could possibly be a ma.s.sacre in Shen'du.

If it was just his life on the line, he wouldn't fear anything. Ever since the apocalypse, he was no longer afraid of dying. Plus, the more unafraid he was, the less his chances of dying during that crucial time would be.
