Chapter 820: Mr. Lu De
Was the blade in the brat’s hand not an ordinary item?
They looked at one another, then turned to look at the Dragon Saber in Xiao Luo’s hand again. They saw the scabbard was of ordinary material, like a knife. Even if one threw it in the streets, it was highly unlikely anyone would want it. There was no way it was a God weapon.
“Senior Chen, is there something wrong with your eyes? How is it possible the b*stard with a cultivation level of a Martial Master has such a rare and powerful weapon in his possession?” asked a man.
“If there is something wrong with my eyes, then why is the god weapon inscription shining?”
Chen Feng took out a triangle inscription. The inscription was glowing with a faint golden light. Only until Xiao Luo was about fifty meters away from it did the golden light disappear. Chen Feng frowned and said, “The god weapon inscription can detect a weapon which is above a Dark grade from within a fifty meters radius. Previously, I thought I made a mistake at the teleportation portal platform. But looking at him again, and with the inscription shining brightly, I am sure the blade in his hand is at least a Dark grade.”
A few of them gasped. Everyone already knew weapons were rated by various grades. At the top of the order was the Saint, followed by Immortal, followed by Sky, Earth, Dark, and Yellow. The lowest grading of all was the most ordinary weapons. The higher the grade, the rarer the item was. A Dark-graded god weapon was more than enough to drive people crazy over it.
“It is unbelievable to imagine the blade in that brat’s hand is a Dark grade. Where did the brat get it from?” A man asked with shock.
“The lucky b*stard must have some dogshit luck and picked it up somewhere. Huh, a Martial Master is not worthy of such a good blade! Is he not afraid he will live a shorter life because of it?” said the girl with envy. She was the one Ghost had taught a lesson.
The man whom Ghost had also beaten up earlier suddenly opened his mouth and stared at the blade with a pair of menacing eyes. “Senior Chen, why are we waiting? Let us look for an opportunity to steal the blade from the brat. He is merely a Martial Master. As for the evil stinky b*tch, with your excellent skills, taking care of her should be a piece of cake. Also, we have a killer move—the Dark grade weapon is as good as ours.”
“Senior Wang is right. It is God’s gift to the Snow Mountain Faction. A Dark grade weapon is not an item a Martial Master is worthy of using. and the brat should not be the one wielding it,” Another person said in agreement.
“We take action now. Any delay will just cause us more problems,” said the girl, gritting her teeth.
Chen Feng raised his hands and said, “There is no hurry. Those who are here for the God Weapon Conference are some of the oldest Seniors. If we cause any trouble and word gets out that there is a Dark grade weapon around here, we will have way more opponents to contend with. When that happens, it would be hard for us to get our hands on the weapon.”
“What is Senior Chen trying to say?”
“We do not take rash actions now. Just watch them and make sure they do not leave our sight. We will strike again when the time is right,” Chen Feng said with his arms behind his back. His eyes gleamed with evil intent when he turned to look at Xiao Luo and Ghost. He had a sinister smile as he stared at the couple who had already walked toward the opposite platform.
The rest of the group nodded their heads, showing their agreement to his statement.
“Luo, why is the guy constantly staring at us?” asked Ghost with a slight frown. She noticed Chen Feng staring at them and pointed it out to Xiao Luo.
“Is it not obvious? It must be because our little girl here is way too pretty. It is why the guy has fixed his eyes on you,” Duck Emperor said.
Ghost was skeptical about the comment. “Do you think it is true?”
“If you do not trust me, then ask the god-damn brat. Is it true?” Duck Emperor asked.
Xiao Luo raised an eyebrow, then nodded his head without giving it much thought.
Duck Emperor carried on praising Ghost. “A beauty who exceeds this world, captivating the birds and the beasts. An inviting smile that glows in the world, putting all the beauties in the palaces to shame. Her sleeves flow in the light breeze, and her skirt shows off her true nature. Eyebrows like a feather, white jade-like beauty with a face like peach petals, and skin smooth as phoenix silk. An enchanting beauty from Autumn, with the charm of Spring, with a slight hint of fluttering red, showing off the hairpin bead that shines brightly. Like a goddess who has descended from heaven… What a delicate and exotic young, pretty girl.”
In one breath, Duck Emperor delivered a verse extolling her beauty. A heartfelt and stirring tribute to Ghost.
Duck Emperor surprised Xiao Luo. If he had not heard the poem, he would have never imagined the stinky duck would be so good with words.
Ghost’s pretty face turned red, and she uttered, “Oh, I hate you! I am not as pretty as you have described me to be.”
With a radiant and charming smile, she happily reached out her hand and patted Duck Emperor on his back. But she failed to control her strength. The cocky Duck Emperor got smacked and was sent flying. His expression completely changed. He spat out some blood and his body shot off like a cannonball across the air.
Ghost got a shock and shouted out, “Duck Emperor!”
Waking up from her moment of joy, she sprinted in the direction that Duck Emperor was flying.
Xiao Luo could not help laughing out loud. He silently pitied Duck Emperor for two to three seconds. Then, he casually shifted his eyes to glance at Chen Feng, who was in the opposite direction. Perhaps it was the nature of people from Hua Nation to be incredibly vigilant. When they faced people they were unfamiliar with, they were careful not to let their guard down. It was the reason Xiao Luo was not fond of people who were overly friendly with him. He was sure Chen Feng was up to something.
What did he intend to do?
On his body, it seemed like only the Dragon Saber in his possession was worth a second look. Without a doubt, Chen Feng was eyeing his Dragon Saber.
He had already been in Arcana Land for quite a while, and it was the first time he encountered someone who eyed his Dragon Saber. Xiao Luo could not help finding it funny. If the man thought about it but did not take any action to steal his saber, then Xiao Luo would do nothing to harm the man. But if the man took action, then Xiao Luo felt sorry as he would have to send him to meet the King of Hell.
“Eh, the Elder, Mr. Lu De from the Dwarf Clan, is here!” Someone beside him exclaimed.
Xiao Luo looked toward the platform. He spotted an old-fashioned elderly dwarf from the Dwarf Clan walking onto the stage with a cane. All those seated down on stage, also from the Dwarf Clan, immediately stood up to greet him respectfully. The elderly dwarf was roughly 1.2 to 1.3 meters tall, with a gourd hanging on his cane. He looked just like the Lord of the Soil and Ground. His beard was thick and white and almost touched the floor. It covered both his chest and legs.
As Ghost was picking the duck up, she saw Lu De. “Wow, why is this old grandpa covered in white hair all over his body? He looks funny, hehe…” Ghost remarked, intrigued by him.
Her comment riled everyone up.
“How can this girl be so rude to Mr. Lu De? Mr. Lu De is the Senior Elder of the Dwarf Clan and is an experienced senior craftsman. All the weapons which he has crafted are not ordinary. The best ones can reach the Sky grade, and the lowest ones are at the Yellow grade. He is a famous master. It would not be too much to acknowledge him as the Father of all god weapons.”
“Mr. Lu De is not someone a girl like you can belittle. If you know nothing, then do not spew nonsense. Otherwise, you are just going to land yourself in trouble.”
“That is right. A master like Mr. Lu De has his way of doing things and has his reputation. What does a girl like you understand?”
