My Big Brother is Seeking Death Again - 36. Please, can I curse?
Shi Xia turned around and walked over to the rectangular shaped door and stretched her hand directly through the door.
“Xia Xia!” Zhen Bing was startled. His face changed, and he immediately pulled her hand back, “You …….”
“I’m fine.” Shi Xia raised her intact hand and waved. She just wanted to do a test and the result was just as she expected. The formation inside did not even fluctuate a little.
Sure enough, this is a security gate, and only reacts to metal.
Zhen Bing repeatedly held her hand up and down and checked several times. His face only eased a little when he saw her unscathed and gave her a look of disapproval.
“I know how to get in.” Shi Xia sighed. Regardless of whether the owner of this Immortal Mansion is also someone like her, they first had to go in. “Zhen Bing, Long Aotian, take out all the metal …… er, I mean all the gold stuff on your body. Put it into this smaller entrance. No matter if it’s a magic weapon or ordinary jewelry, with or without Qi, don’t keep a single piece.”
Saying this, she directly threw the longsword in her hand into the square shaped entrance next to the main entrance. With a flash of red light, the sword disappeared. She took off the storage bag, and touched the silver coins given by Long Aotian before throwing it all in together.
“Why are you standing still? Throw them in.” Shi Xia looked at the two people who were standing like statues and asked.
Zhen Bing and Long Aotian looked at each other and hesitation appeared on their bodies.
“So ……” Long Aotian suddenly thought of something and realized, “So this is what means ‘giving up before entering’? The only way to get through the door is to give up all your possessions.”
“You could say that too.” The security checking door or something, it is very complicated to explain ah.
The two then nodded in understanding and began to bring out their belongings. Zhen Bing only pulled off the storage ring in his hand, threw it in and was done with it. Long Aotian pulled out a gold necklace, a gold ring, and several gold coins from his arms, not to mention the bag of heavy silver and threw them all in.
Really a rich tycoon. -_-!
“Are you guys sure you don’t have any gold items on you at all?” Shi Xia carefully examined the two people. The swords with X-ray manufacturing of this door are super powerful. She didn’t want any of them to become the second Lu Yi.
The two shook their heads in unison.
Shi Xia repeatedly confirmed many times before letting them go. She walked to the door, took a deep breath, and was about to go in, but Zhen Bing suddenly pulled her hand and went in one step before her.
“Before I go.” He tightened his hand as he instructed, “Don’t get too far away from me.”
It’s just crossing the door, Shi Xia nodded. After all, Zhen Bing’s cultivation level was the highest. He was the only one who could protect her.
After removing the metal equipment from her body, they entered the door but as she expected, the formation in the door didn’t react at all, let alone attacking them.
They just walked all the way in unimpeded, probably a few hundred meters ahead, and then out of the door covered with formations.
Inside, it was a soccer field-sized hall room, which was empty. In the center of the hall, there was an ancient wooden table, on top of which was placed a palm-sized box. The box was white as jade and looked very delicate. A faint golden light could be seen flashing inside. Even standing far away, they could feel rich spiritual energy emitting from the box.
“That’s the most precious ‘Wheel of Return’?” Even Long Aotian, a martial arts practitioner, could see that the box contained something extraordinary. And it seemed that whatever was inside was none other than the legendary ‘Wheel of Return’. He was curious and stepped forward to see what the legendary treasure that could see the past and future looked like.
“Wait.” Shi Xia pulled him back, pointed to the small exit by the door and instructed, “take all the stuff before leaving.” Why the big bag of gold coins that went through the machine hasn’t come out yet?
“Stuff?” Long Aotian froze.
In the next moment, a red light flashed and a small exit appeared. With a bang, a longsword fell down. It was the one that Shi Xia first put in. Immediately after that, there were several red flashes of light, and one after another, the things that were put inside were spit out.
“This …… Are these not ……” the items they put in before?
“What are you standing around for? Take them!” Shi Xia urged hurriedly.
Zhen Bing quickly came back to his senses and obediently walked over to pick up his storage ring.
Long Aotian, who was still confused, couldn’t help but ask, “We can take them away…… Is that all right? Didn’t the door say we have to ‘give up’?” How come they are returning them again without taking a single piece?
“Don’t worry, Long Aotian……” she patted his shoulder and explained, “You know, the people working on the security checking door will not take a penny from us.”
What’s a security checking door? And who the hell are working for it?
“Well, let’s go already!” Shi Xia directly stuffed the pile of gold on the ground back to him, before walking towards the center of the hall room.
Long Aotian followed her with a puzzled face.
The three walked directly to the centre of the hall, the surrounding spiritual Qi became denser the more they walked forward. Maybe it was their illusion, but the golden light emitting from the white box seemed to shine brighter. It became almost blinding, as if the whole box was saying “I am the only one, baby.”
But Shi Xia didn’t care about that box, she didn’t come to the Immortal Palace for treasure hunting.
She directly pulled out the phone to check, but found that the app didn’t respond at all. The screen was still showing the same picture.
This is not scientific at all!
Isn’t this the deepest part of the Mu Xuan Immortal Mansion? Why is the mission not completed?
Could it be that the phone is having a signal problem?
Shi Xia could not help but hold up the phone high and wander around the hall. But no matter which way she looked, whether left, or right, up and down, left or right corners, the result was still the same. The app didn’t show any update, even the angle didn’t move.
What kind of swindler is this!
“Benefactor, what are you doing?” Long Aotian looked at her who was milling around the room with a puzzled face.
“Looking for a signal.”
“Signal?” Long Aotian froze, “What kind of magic weapon is that? How come I’ve never heard of it?”
Shi Xia stared at him, “This magic treasure can be powerful ……” she cleared her throat, and began to make up a story with a serious face, “Signal is a very powerful and omnipotent treasure. The legend has it that ‘telecommunications’ ‘mobile’ and ‘Unicom’, these three are the top Sword cultivator masters, who trained tooth and nail and combined their efforts to make a tenth-rank magic treasure, which is Signal. This magic treasure is invisible, but exists everywhere. An average person can simply freely use 2G, 3G and 4G special Signal according to their strength.”
“There is such a powerful magic treasure in the world.” Long Aotian’s eyes widened and his whole body trembled in excitement. Looking around, he declared, “Then we must hurry to find it. Since the benefactor knows this magic treasure so well, do you know exactly where it is hidden?”
“Of course, can’t you see I’m climbing the pillar?” Shi Xia held up the phone and pointed to her hands and feet that were holding the pillar like an octopus. Sliding down she explained further, “This magic treasure stays on the highest place. The higher the distance, the greater the chances of it appearing.”
“So that’s how it is.” Long Aotian nodded as everything dawned on him. He rolled up his sleeves and suggested, “Then benefactor, why don’t I help you?”
Been long waiting for you to say that!
Shi Xia stuffed the phone into his hand, “Take this, there is a special spell to find the Signal. As long as you are close to the treasure, this thing will light up and change. Now go!” I’m tired of climbing the pillar.
“Benefactors do not worry, I will try to help you find this ‘magic treasure’.” Saying this, he swiftly climbed another pillar.
Shi Xia silently patted herself in the back for saving Long Aotian before. That’s why you should help people. The more you do good deeds, the better you will receive ah.
“Xia Xia.” Zhen Bing spoke with a puzzled face, “Those three cultivators you mentioned who made ‘Signal’, why have I never heard of them? I wonder which sect they come from?” Wasn’t there only one tenth-ranked Sword practitioner in the cultivation world?
“Uh …… they come from …… BA. It’s a very distant and ancient sect, it’s normal that you haven’t heard of it.”
“Where is this sect?” Zhen Bing continued asking, “Cultivation with Sword is only possible by allowing the Qi of one person to advance. These three Sword practitioners can actually combine their efforts to make a weapon! I would like to meet these three tenth-ranked Sword cultivators.”
“You won’t be able to meet them.” Broadcasters will always be a legend ah, “that sect has many rules, and has a very conservative thinking. No one can enter or leave the sect. In their rules, it is also written that no animal, who can become human after a certain period of time can enter! The rules are very strict.”
“……” Is there such a strange sect? “Then, what is the speciality of this magic treasure? I only know that the world is divided into Yang and Yin and five elements. But I have never heard or seen such Qi named ‘2G’ and ‘3G’?”
“Uh ……” you know too much, “I don’t know such details well. There are many unknown things in the world. Besides, you are just a spirit animal, and can’t use it. Knowing so much about it is useless for you.”
“……” Zhen Bing froze and didn’t continue to ask anymore questions.
And the diligent and good companion of Shi Xia, Comrade Long Aotian, climbed every pillar once. But the result was as same as usual, the phone was still unresponsive.
“Benefactor, this pillar doesn’t have the magic treasure either. Should we open that box to see?” He returned the phone back to her and pointed to the jade box on the table and said, “This box looks unusual, if it’s not the ‘Wheel of Return’, maybe it’s the magic treasure called ‘Signal’.”
Shi Xia looked at the box again, the box was placed exactly at the center of the table, which was placed at the centre of the hall room. Then, does the task require her to be in the centre to trigger it?
She went forward and picked up the box. Long Aotian and Zhen Bing also focused their eyes on the box. The golden light in the box became brighter and brighter, flashing as if urging people to hurry up and open it.
Shi Xia looked at it carefully and searched for the lock to open it. Just as she pressed hard, the box opened with a click. Bright golden light, simply blinding everyone slowly dissipated, revealing a fragrant …… empty box.
Empty …… empty ……
Then what were you flashing for ah! Drop dead! Advertising is not for fooling people!
“How can it be empty?” Long Aotian showed an unbelievable look. Said it has the magic treasure but where is it? Where is the ‘Wheel of Return’?
“Huh? There’s a note inside, it seems to have words written on it.” He pointed to the bottom of the box.
Shi Xia took a closer look. Indeed, at the bottom of the box, there was a white paper lying in the same color as the jade box.
She picked it up, some words in black ink were written on the white paper. But the surprising thing was that it was written in simplified Chinese. The handwriting looked a bit familiar, so she unconsciously read out.
“The universe’s best……”
Halfway through reading the paper, she stopped. Her eyes opened as wide as a saucer. Looking around, everything crashed down to her like a thunderbolt. It smashed on the head, fried her brain and split her thoughts. The corners of her twitched as she thought.
Please, can I curse?
