Chapter 258: The broken Rainbow Dusk (Part 1)
As soon as he finished roaring, he immediately stood up at an incredible speed and said in a voice filled with doubt, “Strange, why would the Heavenly Stellar City Lord know that turtle born, rabbit raised Dark Ghost King that should be chopped to a thousand pieces was hiding in the Illusory Beast Clan Ruins…..”
As soon as Ye Tian Xie was about to explain, the Heavenly Sun City Lord shouted again, stunning Ye Tian Xie, making him swallow the words he was about to say, “Golden Dragon Seal! Fuck! It’s the Golden Dragon Seal. Goddamn, this is actually from Lost Continent’s Emperor!!”
Ye Tian Xie looked up at it and found that there was a golden glittering mark at the end of the letter. This should be the “Golden Dragon Seal” that Heavenly Sun City Lord was shouting about, that represented the highest authority on the Lost Continent.
The Heavenly Sun City Lord quickly turned around and roared at Ye Tian Xie, “This is a letter from Lost City, why didn’t you say that earlier!! I thought that it was something from the undying Heavenly Stellar City old fool!!”
His normal words were already like a normal person’s shouting, but once he began to shout……and shouting right at him, Ye tian Xie felt like he was faced with the sounds of artilleries. His ears buzzed and he couldn’t help taking several steps back. He calmed himself and then gently said, “You didn’t ask.”
“Can’t you just say it even if I don’t ask!”
“You didn’t let me speak.”
“You, you, you, you, you……” The Heavenly Sun City Lord did not take a single breath and almost fainted. Then he angrily roared, “Father doesn’t have time to spare for a brat like you…..There was a strange sound coming from the Illusory Beast Clan Ruins yesterday, it must be that turtle born, rabbit raised Dark Ghost King that should be cut into a thousand pieces wanting to attack my Heavenly Sun City. If he does attack my city, then my Heavenly Sun City will fall into chaos…..Someone come!!”
“Sir City Lord, please calm yourself first. The Dark Ghost King is no longer in the Illusory Beast Clan Ruins.” Ye Tian Xie took a step back, keeping a safe distance from the Heavenly Sun City Lord before he spoke up.
“Not there anymore?” The Heavenly Sun City Lord took a step closer to Ye Tian Xie and then pulled him back from the distance that he worked hard to create, staring right into his eyes, “You, you, you, what do you mean? The Lost Continent Emperor’s letter clearly stated that the Dark Ghost King was inside the Illusory Beast Clan!!”
“He was there before yesterday, but after yesterday’s dusk, he was no longer there and had been chased off.” Ye Tian Xie moved his head back a bit and then spoke in a serious voice.
The Heavenly Sun City Lord looked right at him, “Is what you said true? How does a brat like you know? Why should father believe you?”
The Heavenly Sun City Lord’s voice was filled with disbelief, but his eyes were filled with an anxious look like the further the Dark Ghost King was the better. Any one of the Eight Demon Kings had strength at the Mysterious God Grade that not a single one of the Twelve Sages could fight alone. The strongest protection the Heavenly Sun City had was at the Heavenly Grade, so if the Dark Ghost King wanted to attack the Heavenly Sun City, it would be safer to evacuate everyone.
“After the changes of the Illusory Beast Clan Ruins yesterday, Sir City Lord should have sent someone to see what happened…..Sir City Lord should know there were traces of a fight right? That’s right, there was someone that fought the Dark Ghost King, but it didn’t affect Heavenly Sun City because of the Illusory Beast Clan Ruins’ barrier. Think about it, if the Dark Ghost King wins…..He was hiding inside, afraid that the Seven Sages would find him, but now that the location had been destroyed and has attracted the attention of everyone, do you think that he will still stay there? Moreover, if the Dark Ghost King lost, then he would definitely run away and wouldn’t stay there anymore……So, after the battle yesterday, the Dark Ghost King should no longer be in the Illusory Beast Clan and should have run far away. Isn’t that right, Sir City Lord?” Ye Tian Xie calmly explained.
While Ye Tian Xie was speaking, the Heavenly Sun City Lord was staring at first before nodding along with him and his nervous face slowly disappeared. The news from Lost City had completely shocked his mind and almost made his soul jump out, but now that he heard Ye Tian Xie’s reasonable and “impregnable” reasoning, and seeing the appearance of the Illusory Beast Clan Ruins, his cold sweat suddenly disappear and his heart fell down.
“Ha, ha, ha, ha……Ha, ha, ha, ha……Young man, good words, you’re not wrong. If you say it like that, then I can feel assured. Ha, ha, ha, ha…..Ha, ha, ha, ha……” The suddenly relaxed Heavenly Sun City Lord patted Ye Tian Xie’s shoulder, laughing like a maniac.
The Heavenly Sun City’s strength was not small and patting Ye Tian Xie made him grimace in pain, with red damage figures appearing above his head. He resisted the urge to cut off the hand of this abnormal City Lord and just gritted his teeth…..Who made it impossible for him to offend NPCs in a game.
“Un….Brat, I suddenly feel like you’re pleasing to the eye. What is your name?” The Heavenly Sun City Lord finally stopped hurting Ye Tian Xie. With a good mood, he looked at Ye Tian Xie with a fairly pleased expression as he spoke.
“Oh…..Your name is not bad. That’s right, how do you know that the Dark Ghost King fought someone yesterday?” The Heavenly Sun City Lord said with a look full of expectations.
“I saw it.”
“Really? Then which hero chased off the turtle born, rabbit raised Dark Ghost King that deserves to be chopped into a thousand pieces? Was it Lost City’s Indigo Ice Magic God? Or was it the wandering number one expert Nameless? Or was it…..”
“The person that sent the Dark Ghost King running….is right in front of you.” Ye Tian Xie straightened himself and said with a serious expression.
The world suddenly turned silent and Heavenly Stellar City Lord stared right at Ye Tian Xie. After staring at him for a whole five second, he erupted with laughter like a volcano, “Oh, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha…..You brat wouldn’t be talking about yourself, right? Ha, ha, ha, ha…..Brat, this is the funniest joke that I heard today. You wanted to chase the Dark Ghost King by yourself…..Just with your small body, not to mention the Dark Ghost King, even father could kill you a hundred times with a single finger…..Ha, ha, ha, ha……”
Faced with the arrogant laugh of the Heavenly Sun City Lord, Ye Tian Xie calmly took out a black token. He waved the Dark Ghost King’s Token in front of the Heavenly Sun City Lord’s eyes, “This should be enough to prove it.”
Scare you to death…..Scare you to death…..Now try to laugh!! Ye Tian Xie ruthlessly said in his heart.
Naturally, the Heavenly Sun City Lord’s laughing stopped and his copper bell like eyes stared at the Demon King’s Token, continuously staring at it…..Just staring at it…..then he looked up and abruptly asked, “Is this the token dropped by the Dark Ghost King? Did you pick it up after defeating him?”
Ye Tian Xie nodded.
The Heavenly Sun City Lord had a strange look on his face. It was not shock or exaggerated laughing, but rather just a calm look as he stared at Ye Tian Xie and said, “The Dark Ghost King really was chased off by you…..I can’t see it, but you’re pretty strong aren’t you brat…..Un, I have a quest that only a powerful person can complete, do you want to try it?”
Ye Tian Xie’s heart filled with doubt. When he saw this large beaded uncle was so excited seeing the letter suddenly become so quiet and calm after seeing this Dark Ghost King Token, it felt very strange. He tried asking, “What quest is it?”
“Un…..To the far south of my Heavenly Sun City, there is a terrifying place called the Lava Prison. It’s said to be the hottest place on the Lost Continent and only the truly powerful ones can approach it. The heat from my Heavenly Sun City mainly comes from this…..However, my Heavenly Sun City was not as hot as it was today. The current heat is because of Fire Sprites being agitated in the Lava Prison…..” The Heavenly Sun City Lord said with a sigh.
“There is a strong flame energy in the Lava Prison and gradually, it gathers together to form an intelligent life form, called the Fire Spirits. The Fire Spirits were first friendly, but the pure flame energy could not take the corruption……The demon qi that spilled from the Tower of Destiny came over here and the first one affected was the Fire Sprites. Their consciousnesses was too weak, making them lose control of themselves, becoming restless……Secondly, there are a group of Fire Sprites that have escaped the Lava Prison and entered forest or even human territories, creating fires……Ai!” The Heavenly Sun City Lord gave a sigh before continuing, “Xie Tian, since you can defeat the Dark Ghost King, can you go south and eliminate a thousand Fire Sprites that are dangerous and can no longer communicate? I think like this, the temperature should decrease in my Heavenly Sun City.”
“Ding….The Heavenly Sun City Lord has asked you to go to the Lava Prison and eliminate 1000 Fire Sprites.
Quest Grade: Random
Quest Time Limit: Three months
Quest Penalty: None…..
Special Reminder: The Lava Prison is a very dangerous place, you are encouraged to give up or reject this quest. Do you wish to accept?”
Ye Tian Xie: “……”
Lava Prison, this was not the first time Ye Tian Xie had heard of this. Back in the Beginner Village, he had already learned about the Lava Prison because Yuan Que’s “Big Dipper Fruit” had come from the Lava Prison.
Thinking of the Heavenly Sun City Lord’s expression and his reaction from before…..Adding in the system’s special warning to reject it, Ye Tian Xie felt that this had a trace of a plot attached to it.
There had to be a problem.
“Alright…..Then I’ll help Sir City Lord eliminate one thousand Fire Sprite.” Ye Tian Xie still casually chose to accept it.
The Heavenly Sun City Lord revealed a smile as he said, “Then that’s great. Xie Tian, why don’t you go right now? I’ll be waiting for your good news…..Oh, it’s really warm today, it’s so easy to fall asleep. I’ll go take a nap, so I won’t personally send you out.”
The Heavenly Sun City Lord gave a yawn and the turned around…..When he turned around, he suddenly revealed a sinister smile on his face…..A brat like you chased off the Dark Ghost King? Who are you trying to deceive! That Demon King’s Token must be picked up or it would have been made……Daring to play with father, then father will play with you until your death…..I’ll send you running back to your grandma.
Ye Tian Xie took a thoughtful glance at the Heavenly Sun City Lord. As he was about to leave, a man with a head full of sweat suddenly ran in and anxiously said, “Sir City Lord…..That Red Sheep….That Red Sheep appeared again, but it runs too fast. We…..couldn’t catch it…..”
“What!!” The Heavenly Sun City Lord turned with a roar and pointed at the person’s nose as he cursed, “You let the Red Sheep escape again…..This is already the eighth time!! You’re all idiots…..Ah! What are you standing there for! Why are you not searching for it already! If you can’t find the Red Sheep and take the gourd from it to fix father’s Rainbow Dusk, then never return to me!!”
“Ah…..Yes, yes!” That person retreated while trembling.
The gourd on the Red Sheep? Ye Tian Xie that was about to leave suddenly stopped moving.
