Chapter 818: God Weapon Conference
“Luo, I want a kiss too!”
Inside the teleportation portal, Ghost finally mustered up the courage to say what she had in mind. She had been hesitating since she entered the portal.
Xiao Luo stared at her incredulously for a while, then reached out and flicked a finger between her eyebrows. “Are you alright up here? What the heck are you talking about?” he said.
Ghost touched her forehead and looked up at him defiantly. “I am fine. I merely want a kiss,” she said.
“Haha, haha, quack, quack, quack…”
Duck Emperor could not help himself and burst out laughing in stitches. “Little One, I bet you got jealous after you saw the little girl from the Baiyue Nation kissing this darn kid?”
Ghost did not deny it. She pouted her lips and continued to gaze at Xiao Luo.
Xiao Luo felt his head aching. He already had tons of frivolous relationships back in the Original World and did not want to have any other relationships with women in this world.
He asked Ghost, “Do you know why I am going to the Holy Land of the Light Clan?”
Ghost shook her head and stared at him curiously.
“To find my wife.”
Xiao Luo told her solemnly, and added, “By the way, we also have an adorable daughter. My wife and I could have lived a life with no worries, but the people from the Light Clan took her away. The reason I am going to the Holy Land is to rescue my wife.”
After she heard what he said, Ghost got startled. She had always thought Xiao Luo was going to the Light Clan’s holy land for sightseeing. Never did she expect that he had kin over there, just like she did. “Luo, why have I not heard you mention all these before?”
“We call it subtlety. Not everything has to be shared. In many things, it is best to keep them hidden at the bottom of your heart. I guess you finally know why this darn kid is so mature. And why his every move and every word seem to give a strong sense of security,” Duck Emperor chimed.
Xiao Luo glanced at Duck Emperor and did not say a word. The darn duck had said everything he wanted to say.
Unwavering, Ghost looked at Xiao Luo, and replied, “Even so, it has nothing to do with me liking you. The Sucking Blood Clan allows even three to four wives. If I cannot be your first wife, I can be your second or third.”
First, second, third wife?
Xiao Luo felt speechless. Then, he tapped her head lightly and said, “I wonder what it is you have in here. Do you still want to save your father or not?”
“Yeah, of course. I want to.”
She was resolute in the matter of her father and immediately nodded. But then, she subsequently giggled as he thought occurred to her. “It looks like getting married to Luo is not a matter of urgency. We can further discuss it after we meet father, hehe…”
Xiao Luo held his forehead and sighed wearily.
“Darn kid, do not behave like you are suffering an enormous loss here. Look at Little One. Look at how radiant and bubbly she is. I feel being your second or third wife is like sticking a lovely flower in a dunghill,” remarked Duck Emperor. He tried to comfort Ghost by putting Xiao Luo down.
Xiao Luo stared at the duck with a chilling glare, and said, “I am going to give you one more chance. Weigh your words carefully and say it to me again!”
“What I mean is the both of you suit each other. Don’t you know that making an analogy is based on a correlation?” answered Duck Emperor. He was so terrified he quickly flew into Ghost’s pocket to hide.
Ghost asked, “What is a correlation? How do you make an analogy?”
Xiao Luo and Duck Emperor were both at a loss for words.
As the aura in the teleportation portal faded, all three of them soon arrived at Tarawa City.
Like all the other portals, there was a similar transmitting and receiving station in Tarawa City. They stood on the platform which received people transmitted from various locations throughout the realm. What the grandmaster had told them about the Tarawa City was true. Dwarves undoubtedly governed the city. The armored soldiers around them were all dwarves, with a height of only about 1.2 to 1.3 meters.
The cultivation level of these dwarven soldiers was not low. They were at the Great Martial Masters level, while their leader was a powerhouse at the Martial Spirit level.
There was a group of people who teleported to the city together with Xiao Luo. After stepping out of the transmitting and receiving station, a young man in silver robes came over to Xiao Luo to greet him with about five or six people.
“Brother, you guys must be here for the God Weapon Conference as well. Would you like to travel together with us?” asked the silver-robed youngster.
Xiao Luo glanced at him indifferently. Traveling with the silver-robed youngster were both men and women at varying cultivation levels. The lowest level of those in the group was at the Martial Master level. The highest among them was the silver-robed youngster who was at the peak of Martial Spirit Realm. He was one step away from attaining the Martial Lord level.
Before Xiao Luo could speak, the silver-robed youngster introduced himself, “My name is Chen Feng. I come from the Snow Mountain Faction, which is five hundred thousand miles away.”
Not only did he introduce himself, but he also introduced all the others who were traveling with him. All of them were disciples of some sects from the same area.
Xiao Luo did not want to get to know anyone. He only wanted to get to the teleportation portal quickly to head toward his next destination. He answered, “I am sorry. We are not here for the God Weapon Conference.”
Immediately after he replied, he walked away with Ghost and Duck Emperor, giving Chen Feng no time to respond. He left Chen Feng and his party standing where they were, scratching the backs of their heads in bewilderment.
“Luo, let us have a look. Perhaps we can find useful weapons,” Ghost suggested. She was very interested in the God Weapon Conference. She felt she should have a weapon suitable for her.
Duck Emperor agreed with Ghost and added, “Little One is right. You have the Dragon Saber and you’re invincible. But we are unarmed. Finding weapons for ourselves is very necessary.”
“Is my protection not enough?” Xiao Luo glared at the both of them.
“It is. But I wish I could help when we are confronted by enemies,” insisted Ghost.
“Precisely,” Duck Emperor added with a nod.
“There is a weapon shop right over there. If you want a weapon, we will head there now,” Xiao Luo said and pointed to a shop in front.
“Those are just crappy metal. It is not worth our time to look at those. With our noble status, we should carry God Weapons,” retorted Duck Emperor.
His words have undoubtedly exposed what he had in mind. He was only interested in owning a God Weapon and did not think other weapons befitted him.
Xiao Luo said two words to him. “P*ss off!”
Duck Emperor did not dare to say anything more. Ghost was not as enthusiastic as Duck Emperor. While God Weapons were attractive to her, she would listen to Xiao Luo unconditionally.
They found a dwarf to inquire about the location of the teleportation portal. They discovered that the portal was the same place where they were holding the God Weapon Conference.
It put Xiao Luo in an awkward position and he cursed his luck that he’d always find himself in situations he wanted to avoid. Meanwhile, both Ghost and Duck Emperor were visibly excited and even gave each other a high-five.
“Let us have a look. Even the heavens want us to attend the God Weapon Conference. Quack, quack…” Duck Emperor said gleefully.
“Do not be too full of yourself. Even if there are God Weapons, they are not something a darn duck like you can wield,” Xiao Luo replied with sarcasm.
“Luo, leave it at that. Let us hurry and go to the God Weapon Conference. Oh, I mean the teleportation portal. Hehehe…” Ghost urged.
Xiao Luo was speechless. He had no choice but to go.
Ghost suddenly stopped walking and rubbed her stomach. Somewhat embarrassed, she asked, “Luo, before we go, can we grab some food? I am so hungry.”
“What do you want to eat?” asked Xiao Luo.
“Over there. I can smell something nice coming from over there. Let us go there for food,” Ghost exclaimed, pointing excitedly at a restaurant.
