“Your Highness, amongst the people who have Dark grade spirit weapons in Hu An City, moreover those that use swords, there is one old man that is closest to your description.”


“Age close to 60, tall and thin, often wears grey or light blue chang pao.
He travels in all directions, relying on reselling beast materials for a living.
Once, someone offered 300 gold coins for his sword and was rejected by him.”

Yu Ren Shu used a cotton cloth to carefully clean Tian Rong Jian.
That Jian was an exquisite ivory white, sunken edges well distributed.
The texture was thick and heavy yet smooth, like a perfect work of art.
Listening to the subordinate describe him, his hand paused, “Going through this many cities, this is the closest one.”

“Yes, subordinate has already sent people to the house of the old man to investigate.
There’s no one in the house, it’s very possible they already escaped.
According to what the surrounding neighbours say, the old man brought a young man and a young child back about two or three months ago.”

Yu Ren Shu lifted his eyebrows, “A young child?”


Yu Ren Shu said: “Send some more manpower to search within the city.
In addition, strengthen security on all the routes out of the city.
As soon as you find a suspicious trail, immediately report back.”


After the subordinate withdrew, Tian Rong Jian was suffused with a white light.
A man dressed in amber from head to toe appeared in the room out of thin air.

“How was it? Have you found it?” Tian Rong sat directly in front of Yu Ren Shu, picking up the teacup on the table and drinking a mouthful.

Yu Ren Shu said: “Tian Rong, if you want to drink tea I’ll just send someone to bring you a cup.
You can’t drink my tea.
I’ve taught you before.”

Tian Rong crossed one leg over the other, “Why do I have to comply with the etiquette of humans?”

“Because you are my spirit beast and I am the prince of Tian Ling.”

Tian Rong shrugged his shoulders, “Then it’s better for you not to call me out when you want to maintain your reputation.”

Yu Ren Shu put down the Jian, “You came out yourself just now.”

Tian Rong’s lips curled up in a smile, a pair of abstruse animal eyes stared fixedly at Yu Ren Shu, “Are you afraid?”

Yu Ren Shu’s chin raised a little, “What do you mean?”

“Now, I can appear whenever I please.
My spiritual power will become more and more powerful.
Aren’t you afraid that you won’t be able to control me anymore?”

Yu Ren Shu smiled: “If I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to control you, I wouldn’t have summoned you in the first place.”

Tian Rong laughed: “A lot of spirit weapon users also have this confidence, but there are also many that are betrayed.”

Yu Ren Shu shook his head, a bright light flashed across his eyes, his tone proud and certain, “I won’t be one of them.”

Tian Rong played with that small teacup, amber pupils filled with a dangerous barbarity, “However, I still quite like you.
Even if there comes a day when you can’t control me, I still probably won’t kill you.”

Yu Ren Shu smiled: “If there really comes a day like that, it’s better if you kill me or else I will definitely seal you.”

Tian Rong narrowed his eyes, “Ok, at least before you take me to travel everywhere in the foreign countries overseas, we are still… friends.”

Yu Ren Shu gave a light laugh, “Oh right, when we entered the city today, you said you felt an unusual pressure.
What’s that about?”

At the mention of this, Tian Rong’s expression sank, “I don’t know, it’s indescribable.
Within my memories, I have never experienced that kind of feeling of being oppressed by some invisible thing.
I don’t even know if that was just my misconception.”

“Isn’t the instinct of rare beasts always very sharp? Is it because you felt that Heaven grade spirit weapon?”

Tian Rong frowned, “It’s not the first Heaven grade spirit weapon I have come across.
That type of feeling is not quite the same as a Heaven grade spirit weapon.”

“Did you hear what we said before? About that young child.”

“I heard.
If it is really him, then it is very possible that that young child is the human form of the rare beast that was summoned because the spiritual power of the Other World person was insufficient.” Tian Rong spoke up to here, and couldn’t help but smile, “Appearing in the world in such a form is the greatest humiliation.
He is definitely extremely mad.”

Yu Ren Shu sneered: “If you are restless, I can also allow you to appear in that form.”

Tian Rong lifted his eyebrow, “If you dare do that, our ‘friend’ relationship ends right here.”

“I think, you feeling a different sense of oppression, could it be related to the form of that child?”

“It’s not completely impossible…..” Tian Rong stroked his chin, “We’ll know when we meet him.”


Jiang Chao Ge’s expression was stiff, “This is your plan?”

“It sounds alright, right?”

Jiang Chao Ge sighed, “Old Meng, did you watch too many soap operas in the past? If I dress as a woman in such a way, you think people are blind?”

Meng Sheng glared at him, “Then what do you say we do? You’re smart, think about it yourself.”

“The most important thing is not how I get out of the city, but rather how I get out of the city with Zhi Xuan Sword.
The sword is actually the hardest thing to hide.”

“That’s why we put the sword in the secret room, or else our objective is too big.” Meng Sheng sighed: “But if Prince Shu really has already found my house…..”

“For a short while they also can’t find the sword.
Even if they do find it, it’s also not easy for them to take it away.” Jiang Chao Ge thought deeply for a moment and changed into a set of good clothes, “I’m going to find a person.
You guys wait for my news.”

“Take me with you.” Zhi Xuan stretched out his small arms.

“This time I can’t take you.
I’ll buy you yummy things to eat when I get back.”

Zhi Xuan snorted from his nose, appearing very unsatisfied.

After Jiang Chao Ge went out, he really did see the guards in the city going out in full force.
It was obvious they had all been dispatched by Prince Shu, searching for them in the entire city.
His expression was perfectly composed, walking on the street with his head high and chest out, looking for Su An.

As soon as Su An saw him, his expression changed and he hurriedly pulled him into the house.

Jiang Chao Ge looked at him calmly, “You already know?”

Su An whispered: “Big Brother I…… your portrait is now everywhere in the city.
How can you still dare to walk on the streets?”

“You can tell that’s me?”

actually I can’t tell, but it’s written that you are an Other World person with and old man and child.
I made a mental connection and no matter how I looked at it, it looked like you.
In the end you were also missing.
I’m not as stupid as you think.”

“Silly boy, I never thought you were stupid.” Jiang Chao Ge patted his shoulder, “Su An, I need you to help me right now.
Prince Shu offered two gold coins as a reward, I’ll give you double that.”

“Big Brother.” Su An said earnestly: “You are the most esteemed person to me in this lifetime, it has nothing to do with gold coins.
Now is my chance to repay you.
Please ask, what do you want me to do?”

“You go find the manager of that pawn shop.
Tell him I need to borrow their ship to transport things out of the city.
If he can do it, the ring he saw last time will be his.”

But will he be able to guess?”

“I can only gamble this time, see if his bravery is fat enough.
According to my understanding of that person, his greed is enough for him to take a risk out of desperation.”

“Ok, I’ll go right now.”

“Su An, you also have to help me prepare some things…..”

After finding Su An, Jiang Chao Ge walked towards Scorpion Lane, walking by quickly nearby.
He found that there were several guards guarding the entrance of Meng Sheng’s residence, but according to Meng Sheng’s strength, dealing with these people shouldn’t be a problem.

On the way back, he bought some clothes and food and also two pots of alcohol.

Returning to the hotel, Zhi Xuan who had long since smelt the scent of alcohol from a long way away with his unknown type of nose, pushed open the door and stuck out his small head, little paws happily patting the doorframe: “Your bought alcohol? You can be regarded as tactful.”

Jiang Chao Ge smiled: “These two pots of old Kerria Japonica Flower Wine cost me four hundred silver coins.
You probably can’t find a better wine in the entire Hu An City.”

Zhi Xuan was so excited his two eyes lit up, “Give it to me quick.”

Jiang Chao Ge picked him up with one move, walked into the room and directly placed him on the table, “Little Zuzong, can you help me with something?”

Zhi Xuan hugged the alcohol pot, and got a nose full of scent, “What?”

Jiang Chao Ge opened the alcohol pot for him, “Tonight, me and Meng Sheng have to think of a way to escape from the city.
It’s not convenient to bring you.
You go back in the sword first.
When we reach a safe place we will summon you out again.”

Zhi Xuan hugged the alcohol pot, gulping down several mouthfuls and then contently wiped his mouth, “For the sake of alcohol, I’ll reluctantly agree once.”

Jiang Chao Ge patted his small head and smiled: “Thank you Sir Zhi Xuan.”

Jiang Chao Ge repeated his plans to Meng Sheng.
Meng Sheng felt fear and trepidation listening to it, “This is also too risky.”

“If we continue to stay here, we’ll be found sooner or later.
Right now, we can only take a risk and gamble.” Jiang Chao Ge knew that the crucial point was only tonight.
If they couldn’t escape and fought head to head with Prince Shu, they would undoubtedly be defeated.

After the sun set, the three left the hotel one by one and went towards Meng Sheng’s residence.

The guards that kept watch over the entrance still remained, and moreover the manpower evidently increased.

Jiang Chao Ge whispered: “You should be able to defeat them right?”

“No need.”


“I already said, it’s a secret room under my bed not a basement.
Secret rooms don’t only have one door.”

Jiang Chao Ge’s eyes lit up, “Thats unexpected ah Old Meng.”

Meng Sheng humphed: “I didn’t live idly in this world for dozens of years.
Follow me.”

The two avoided Scorpion Lane and walked to a patch of uncultivated land behind the house.
It was pretty far from the main city district here.
It was similar to the slums of modern times, there was only a few sporadic houses littered around.
As soon as it’s nighttime very few people came and went.
They didn’t bump into any people along the way.

Behind a large rock, Meng Sheng opened the hidden door to the secret room, “Its not even a hundred metres away from where you put the sword from here.
You crawl over to get the sword and we’ll immediately leave.”

Jiang Chao Ge said surprised: “Old Meng, why did you want to dig out this secret room?”

Meng Sheng shook his head: “It isn’t me who dug it out.
This house was also left to me by that old friend that gave me this sword.”

Jiang Chao Ge also didn’t have time to think more about it, bent over and crawled into the pitch black secret tunnel.

That secret tunnel had been dusty for a long time.
The oxygen inside was thin.
Jiang Chao Ge felt uncomfortable after crawling only a dozen metres.
He was very worried that he wouldn’t be able to successfully crawl back to the house, but now he also couldn’t turn back.
He forced himself to crawl forward.
It took him more than ten minutes to crawl the short distance of a hundred metres before he felt a wooden door.
That wooden door was extremely old and stiff.
He could only pull it open after tugging it many times.
There was slightly more air inside.
He took a very deep breath of air.
This familiar kind of humidity made him become aware that he had already arrived at the ‘basement’ under the bed.
He felt around in the darkness yet he initially felt a section of bone……

Jiang Chao Ge shivered from head to toe and gently placed the bone back to its original spot.
Luckily this was a different world, bone materials and scattered bones could be sene everywhere or else he would be scared sick.
He continued to feel forwards, and as a result, touched many things that felt strange.
There were bones but there were also indescribable things.
In the end, he finally touched Zhi Xuan sword.

He grabbed the sword and crawled back at the fastest speed.
When he felt like he was about to go unconscious from the lack of oxygen, he finally crawled out of the secret tunnel.

He laid on his back on the grass, breathing big gulps of air.
At this very moment, he really felt that there was nothing more precious than fresh air.

Meng Sheng let out a breath of air, “Come on, lets go.”

Zhi Xuan stared disgustedly at Jiang Chao Ge, “You are so damn dirty, don’t hold me.”

Jiang Chao Ge crawled up from the ground and said weakly: “Zuzong, I won’t hold you.
I’ll send you back into the sword now alright?”

Zhi Xuan pouted and struggled, “When will you summon me again?”

When we escape Hu An City.”

wait!” Zhi Xuan looked at him, “Will you be killed by the Third Prince?”

Jiang Chao Ge hesitated, “I won’t.”

“You don’t even have a bit of confidence.”

Jiang Chao Ge smiled wryly: “Ok, I don’t know.
He is much more powerful than me.”

Zhi Xuan glared at him, “He’ll definitely find me a spirit weapon user that’s more powerful than you.”

“He should be able to.”

Zhi Xuan tilted his head and looked at him from the corner of his eye, “Will that spirit weapon user that’s more powerful than you also buy me alcohol to drink?”

Jiang Chao Ge smiled: “This I cannot dare to guarantee.
Perhaps he is penniless man.”

Zhi Xuan gave a light snort, “If you want to save your life, then summon me.
Although I hate trash like you, for the sake of alcohol, I can save you once.
That way we’ll be even.”

Jiang Chao Ge couldn’t help but smile, “With your current form, how are you going to save me?”

Zhi Xuan showed a mouthful of small white teeth, “Shut up! If you don’t believe me then go die.”

“How can I dare not believe you.
I hope that at that time, Sir Zhi Xuan can think of old affections and save my life.”

Zhi Xuan grabbed his collar and whispered: “Try not to die.”

Jiang Chao Ge pinched his small cheek and smiled lightly: “Okay.”

Zhi Xuan’s body disappeared into the air in an instant.
Jiang Chao Ge didn’t know what kind of scenario it would be when he next summoned Zhi Xuan but one thing he can certain of is that he can use his own spiritual powers to summon him.

Meng Sheng urged: “Hurry, lets go.”

Jiang Chao Ge carried the sword on his back.
The two ran towards the arranged place to meet Su An in the darkness of night.

Su An had already been waiting for a long time.
He had always been well behaved.
At this moment, he was so nervous even his hands shook.
As soon as he saw Jiang Chao Ge, he rushed forwards, “Big Brother, the ship is already prepared, but that manager….
I’m worried that he isn’t trustworthy.
He was willing to hide the truth from the boss for a dozen silver coins.
What if he betrays you?”

Jiang Chao Ge patted his shoulder, “Therefore, I’d never planned to take his ship.”

Su An was dumbfounded, “Ah?”

“Are the things I wanted you to prepare, prepared?”

Su An nodded his head forcefully, “Its all in my house.”

Jiang Chao Ge took out two gold coins and stuffed it in his hands, “Su An, today we might be parting forever.
If Prince Shu finds you, tell him everything you know.
You don’t need to cover up the truth for me.
He won’t trouble you.”

“Big Brother…..”

Jiang Chao Ge prevented him from continuing to speak, “Su An, thank you.
May we meet again by fate.”
