Chapter 295: Tower of Destiny (Part 1)
“Second brother? Do you think…..your words are a bit strange?” Zuo Po Jun finally couldn’t resist saying in a small voice.
“Oh? How is it strange?” Ye Tian Xie doubtfully asked.
“It feels like……” Zuo Po Jun suddenly remembered the words he said to him and Murong Qiu Shui. Wasn’t today the first day?
The first day……The first of seven sins – arrogance!
“Second brother……Is this the first of seven sins you spoke of – arrogance?” Zuo Po Jun said.
“Arrogance? The words I just said…..were they very arrogant?” Ye Tian Xie couldn’t help rubbing his face. He felt it was strange the whole time. Today was clearly the first day of the seven sins baptism, so why did his mind and body not have the feeling of being baptized by “arrogance”? However…..had he been arrogant just now?
“Eh…..A little bit.” Zuo Po Jun said in a small voice. With his understanding of Ye Tian Xie, although he was a bit arrogant, Ye Tian Xie had never said anything like “those trash pets do not even have the qualification to be compared with mine and Fei Fei’s pet partners” before……Even if he was thinking it.
Ye Tian Xie thought about what he said and what happened with Red Leaves Strong Gale, he slightly knit his brows and hesitantly said, “Perhaps it’s a bit try, but…..Forget it, let’s just leave it for now. You and Qiu Shui should work hard to level.”
Hanging up the call, Ye Tian Xie rubbed his forehead and thought about it. His current actions and thoughts had undergone a large change…..Moreover, his arrogant language, gestures, and expressions had come so naturally, completely complimenting his innermost feelings…..Right now in his mind, the had the strongest pet partners, the mysterious and strongest Moment of Destiny, and the Reverse Boned Evil Dragon Job that had powers far surpassing normal jobs……Everything he had far surpassed the other players…..The other players were only trash that had a fighting potential of five in his eyes.
This was arrogance? This was the arrogance displayed from deep within him?
However……this feeling was not bad. Nameless had said to accept this personality and not reject it, so he would go with this current disposition.
Chen Xin and Su Fei Fei had not entered the game yet, so the house was empty. Ye Tian Xie looked around his house twice before examining the Seven Star Gourd for a while like usual, but he did not find any methods to open it. He placed it away and then after considering where to go for a while, he suddenly patted his head, “How could I forget such an important matter?”
After coming back for several days from Heavenly Sun City, he actually did not go to the Heavenly Stellar City Lord’s palace to claim his reward.
Ye Tian Xie immediately left, heading for the Heavenly Stellar City Lord palace.
Arriving in front of the city lord’s palace, Ye Tian Xie directly walked in. In the past, he would always greet the guards before entering, but this time he directly went in. He did not take a look at the guards which made their lips slightly tremble, but they did not stop him.
The Heavenly Stellary City Lord was holding a small book in a relaxed manner, looking at it with great interest. Hearing the sounds of footsteps, he quickly responded and hid the little book away. As he was about to fly into a rage at this person for not notifying him, he saw that it was Ye Tian Xie and he suppressed his anger. He stood up and said, “Xie Tian, I’ve waited a long time for you…..You actually came back now.”
“I’m here to turn in the quest. The letter that you wanted my to deliver to Heavenly Sun City, I’ve delivered it in ten days.” Ye Tian Xie directly said this. He did not want to waste time here, he just wanted to obtain the reward and leave.
“Un, I understand. That letter had my spiritual seal on it. When you gave it to the Heavenly Sun City Lord, I could already feel it…..Not bad, you really deserve that Badge of Bravery, you have never disappointed me. Actually back then, I never thought that you would be able to deliver the letter that quickly……That’s right, I still have to give you your reward.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord said.
“Ding…..You have successfully delivered the Heavenly Stellar City Lord’s letter within the time limit. You have obtained 7000 gold coins and 30 Prestige.”
Gold coins and also prestige.
The gold coins reward was quite a bit. Seven thousand gold coins could be exchanged for seven thousand chinese dollars. However……
“There is only a gold coins and prestige reward?” After the system prompt sounded, Ye Tian Xie’s brows tightly knit together…..After running so long, passing through many dangerous territories, there was actually such a poor reward……This was simply calling him a beggar!!
Ye Tian Xie’s clear look of dissatisfaction surprised the Heavenly Stellar City Lord. He revealed a faint smile and said, “That’s right, this is the reward…..”
With the sounds of gold coins falling, an entire seventeen thousand gold coins was thrown to the ground of Ye Tian Xie, covering the entire floor. He raised his brows and said, “There is seven thousand gold coins here, you can have it back. We’ll pretend I didn’t do the quest and just ran off to Heavenly Sun City to have fun…..This kind of reward is simply an insult to me!!”
The Heavenly Stellar City Lord’s expression fell. Ye Tian Xie had always been very polite before, but this kind of extreme performance made him seem like a whole different person, which he couldn’t react to right away.
But thinking about it, with the distance from Heavenly Stellar City and Heavenly Sun City, as well as the dangers on the road, there was no doubt that this reward was indeed a bit lacking.
Thinking it like this, although he was dissatisfied with Ye Tian Xie’s rudeness, he wasn’t that angry anymore. He shook his head and said with a smile, “He, he, youths will be youths. Being this spirited, it really makes on jealous…..Alright, then I’ll give you another quest. If you can finish it……”
The Heavenly Stellar City Lord thought about it and said, “Oh…..I actually needed a few ivory tusks. You can go to the east side of the Phantom Forest to the east to kill some Giant Elephants and bring back ten ivory tusks. These Giant Elephants are level twenty five Three Star Elites……”
“This idiotic and easy quest, you can have others do this. I am disinclined to personally make a move.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord had only finished half of his words before Ye Tian Xie cut him off. His words made the Heavenly Stellar City Lord’s expression turn stiff as he looked up to look at him…..From his face, he could see an undisguised arrogance.
“Young man, although your abilities are astonishing and you have the Badge of Bravery, you are still only at a relatively high starting point. The road ahead of you is very long and you musn’t look down on everything just because of your success of the moment. You musn’t do something like this. You should keep your head down to earth……”
“You should give me a quest that I want to do. For this kind of quest that has no challenge, I am disinclined to make a move because it will just waste my time.” Ye Tian Xie cut him off once again, “If there isn’t any today, then I’ll leave first.”
The Heavenly Stellar City Lord did not say anything else and just silently looked at Ye Tian Xie for a while. His change had completely shocked him. Though compared to the shock he found this…..very hard to accept.
A proud person is destined to fail. When a person thinks too highly of themselves, they will not be able to progress forward, being slowly pulled down. As for the current Ye Tian Xie…..Being this rude in front of him, he could not care, but this delusional pride he had made him secretly frown…..A person that had the Badge of Bravery and one that could complete this difficult quest, he would be an incredible genius. He did not want to see a genius seen in a hundred years being ruined by the word “arrogance”.
“Alright.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord’s expression calmed down and he sat back in his chair before saying, “Since you want a challenging quest……Then I will give you a challenging quest. I hope that you…..will be able to complete it.”
Ye Tian Xie finally turned around and said in an interested voice, “Say it, City Lord.”
He had called him “Sir City Lord” in the past, but he had naturally shortened it to just “City Lord”.
“This quest is not considered to hard, I just hope that you can help me obtain an item.”
“Undying Monster Dragon’s Gallbladder.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord said with a frown.
“Undying Monster Dragon?” Ye TIan Xie was a bit astonished.
“That’s right!” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord nodded, “Although the Undying Monster Dragon has the word ‘dragon’ in its name, it is not a real dragon. It is a young dragon that died under the demonic aura and has been corrupted into an undead dragon. It has the body of a dragon, but it doesn’t have the dragon’s power. Although it is called a dragon, it is not as terrifying as a real dragon. But because it had a dragon’s body, you can’t underestimate it. Although the Lost Continent is no longer ruled by dragons, the dragons are still considered the strongest race!”
“What do you need the dragon gallbladder for?” Ye Tian Xie asked.
“I have my uses.” The Heavenly Stellar City Lord gave a willful smile.
“Where is it?”
The Heavenly Stellar City Lord’s voice became vague. He looked at Ye Tian Xie and slowly said, “Before, it lived in the Dark Fog Swamp to the south of Heavenly Star City, but because of its sinful nature, it was sealed in……the, Tower, of, Destiny!!”
Ye Tian Xie: “……”
“Other that that, although the Undying Monster Dragon is not strong, it is still at level twenty five and it is at least in the Spiritual Grade! Like this, do you still dare accept this quest?” He had faint smile as he intently watched Ye Tian Xie while speaking.
Giving this quest was not his goal, he wanted to force Ye Tian Xie back with this difficulty, letting him know that there are many things he can’t do in this world. He hoped that he could teach him a lesson that made him draw back his arrogance, stabilizing his path forward. Like this, he could reach the peak as a true expert.
Regardless of how strong the Undying Monster Dragon was, just its location alone…..The Tower of Destiny, the most sacred place on the Lost Continent. It was a place where one’s expressions changed when talking about it and was the number one forbidden area on the Lost Continent. Other than people with special statuses or the peak experts with incredible strength, no one else was allowed to enter.
With his knowledge, if Ye Tian Xie wanted to enter the Tower of Destiny, it was completely impossible! Not to mention Ye Tian Xie, even with his status, he was not allowed to enter.
