Chapter 1218: Committing Fraud
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Feng Tian Wu remained silent. It seemed as though she was thinking about something as she looked at Martial Emperor Shi Qi and Zhou Yi.
Martial Emperor Shi Qi and Zhou Yi’s expression changed when they noticed Feng Tian Wu’s dilemma. They were really worried she would insist on Chi Huo killing them.
Based on Chi Huo’s attitude toward the lady before him, they did not think Chi Huo would reject her request.
“Hand over the tablet,” Feng Tian Wu said in a deep voice as she looked at Martial Emperor Shi Qi.
Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s expression changed drastically when he heard Feng Tian Wu’s words.
Naturally, he knew what tablet the lady before him was talking about. It was the tablet the purple-clad young man left behind three days ago.
The mysterious and strange tablet granted the purple-clad young man a power that even he was terrified of.
He had been studying the tablet for the past three days, but his effort yielded no results.
However, he had a strong feeling he would definitely be able to figure it out if he studied it further.
Although he was sure that the tablet would make one lose their mind, he was moved when he thought about the terrifying power the stone tablet granted the purple-clad young man.
However, the lady before him was asking him to hand over the tablet.
With Chi Huo’s presence, it was impossible for him to not hand it over.
However, he was unwilling to hand it over.
When Martial Emperor Shi Qi was struggling with his thoughts, a familiar voice entered his ears through Voice Transmission. “Master, I have an idea for you to keep the tablet.”
Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s eyes lit up when he heard that voice.
He could tell that it came from Zhou Yi who was standing next to him.
“What is it?” Martial Emperor Shi Qi asked immediately.
Even if Zhou Yi came up with a bad plan, he was still excited since Zhou Yi said he had an idea for him to keep the tablet.
“Master, we can…” Zhou Yi told Martial Emperor Shi Qi the idea he had through Voice Transmission.
“Alright! We’ll do as you said. I forgot you have the ability to memorize things quickly,” Martial Emperor Shi Qi responded through Voice Transmission. There was joy in the depth of his eyes.
“Shi Qi, this girl’s asking for something from you. This implies she’ll kill you herself in the future… If I attack, she won’t have to ask for it from you because everything in your possession will belong to her if you die.” Although he had no idea what tablet the lady next to him was asking from Martial Emperor Shi Qi, Chi Huo’s face turned somber when he noticed Martial Emperor Shi Qi’s hesitation. There was a hint of anger in his voice when he spoke.
He would not have suggested to the lady next to him to kill Martial Emperor Shi Qi and his disciple herself in the future if it was not for the relationship between him and Martial Emperor Shi Qi. It would be inconvenient for him to kill Martial Emperor Shi Qi himself.
However, he would still attack if Feng Tian Wu insisted on it.
In his opinion, Feng Tian Wu was much more important than Martial Emperor Shi Qi.
Compared to Feng Tian Wu, his insignificant relationship with Martial Emperor Shi Qi was not worth mentioning at all.
Martial Emperor Shi Qi jolted when he heard the anger in Chi Huo’s voice and said immediately, “Senior Chi Huo, I kept the tablet at the place where I cultivate… I’ll bring it over.”
“Go,” Chi Huo said calmly.
“Yes,” Martial Emperor Shi Qi responded immediately before he left.
After Martial Emperor Shi Qi left, Zhou Yi glanced at Chi Huo, pretending to feel anxious.
“Senior Chi Huo, I’ll go with Martial Emperor Shi Qi.” Zhou Yi left immediately and chased after Martial Emperor Shi Qi without waiting for Chi Huo’s response.
Only a group of Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers and the two Martial Emperor’s direct disciples were left watching in the distance.
“Who is that red-robed old man? Even master is respectful to him. This is unbelievable,” one of the Martial Emperor’s direct disciples mumbled.
The other Martial Emperor’s direct disciple did not speak, but he looked at the old man with fear.
Meanwhile, the group of Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers were shocked. They were shocked to the point that they did not regain their senses for a long time.
Even after they regained their senses, none of them dared to speak. They were afraid of saying the wrong thing and offending the red-robed old man standing in the distance.
This was not a joke!
Even their Lost Stone Forest’s Martial Emperor had to respectfully bow to that red-robed old man when they met.
The Lost Stone Forest’s Martial Emperor was like a mouse seeing a cat when he was with the red-robed old man.
“Where are you bringing me to?” Feng Tian Wu asked as she looked at Chi Huo.
“Outside Cloud Continent. There’s a land that’s even more vast… The environment for cultivation there is better. I’ll try my best to provide you with the best cultivation resources.”
Chi Huo said with burning desire in his eyes, “Your talent is much better than mine.” As someone who once possessed the Fire Spirit Body, Chi Huo easily discovered Feng Tian Wu’s talent. She was even more talented than he was.
“You want me to be your disciple?” Feng Tian Wu asked.
“That’s right.” Chi Huo nodded and smiled before he said, “In my entire life, I’ve only taken three direct disciples when I was on Cloud Continent… Now I’m only left with one.” Chi Huo’s voice turned sad when he spoke about this.
“Just because I used to have the Fire Spirit Body?” Feng Tian Wu asked.
“That’s right.” Chi Huo nodded and solemnly said, “Although you’ve gotten rid of the Fire Spirit Body, your body is modified by a substance that’s close to the fire attribute. As long as you cultivate fire attribute methods, your elevation will sky-rocket!”
Chi Huo burning desire was revealed again when he spoke, “I have a feeling… Your achievement will definitely surpass mine in the future!”
“I can be your disciple, and I can leave with you… But I hope you can promise me something before that,” Feng Tian Wu said.
“Do tell.” The more Chi Huo looked at Feng Tian Wu, the more satisfied he felt. He would say yes to whatever Feng Tian Wu’s request was.
As Chi Huo and Feng Tian Wu were talking, Martial Emperor Shi Qi and Zhou Yi were standing across each other in a stone house that was made from an even bigger hollow rock. This was the place where Martial Emperor Shi Qi cultivated.
“Zhou Yi, memorize the words and patterns on the tablet immediately… I’ll look for a rock that’s similar to this tablet. Make a table that looks similar, and I’ll bring it to Senior Chi Huo.” Martial Emperor Shi Qi lifted his arm and passed a tablet with a chipped corner to Zhou Yi.
He vanished into thin air after that.
His and Zhou Yi’s plan was to make a tablet that looked exactly the same to give to Chi Huo whom Feng Tian Wu depended on.
Although it was easy to trace the lines and patterns following the tablet, it would take a long time.
After all, one would need time to look at it as one copied it.
He did not have that much time now.
However, Zhou Yi possessed the ability to memorize everything that he had seen. As long as he had seen it, it would be imprinted in his mind.
Therefore, all he needed to do was memorize the words and patterns on the tablet and create a similar copy. It would only take a while.
Zhou Yi’s plan was to commit fraud.
Naturally, he came up with the plan not for Martial Emperor Shi Qi but for himself.
“Master, I’m sorry… I want this tablet for myself.” Zhou Yi’s eyes sparkled like stars in the sky as he held the tablet in his hand.
Subsequently, another tablet appeared in his hand when he lifted his arm. At a glance, it looked exactly the same as the tablet that he was holding in regards to size, words, and patterns.
Even the chipped corned looked exactly the same.
“I was waiting for the right time to carry out this plan. I didn’t expect even God would help me… This tablet that Duan Ling Tian left behind belongs to me from now.” Zhou Yi moved his arm and put the tablet that Martial Emperor Shi Qi handed to him away.
He held the other tablet that he had made earlier in his arm as though it was the real tablet.
Martial Emperor Shi Qi who was currently looking for a suitable rock would never expect this direct disciple of his had already memorized everything about the tablet since three days ago.
Apart from that, he even spent some time looking for a suitable rock to ensure it would look like the stone tablet.
It was a fake Devilseal Tablet.
Martial Emperor Shi Qi returned in the span of a few breaths. He held a big rock in his arm. “Zhou Yi, if you get us through this… Master will definitely reward you.”
“Thank you, master,” Zhou Yi responded immediately as he took the rock. However, inwardly, he disdained his master.
What kind of reward could Martial Emperor Shi Qi give him?
Martial Emperor Shi Qi would not give him the tablet no matter what.
Fortunately, he managed to obtain the tablet with his own ability.
After the rock was handed over to Zhou Yi, he lifted his arm and a saber appeared in his hand.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
After more than ten breaths, a tablet that looked similar to the Devilseal Tablet appeared in his hands.
Zhou Yi handed the two fake Devilseal Tablets to Martial Emperor Shi Qi and asked with a smile, “Master, what do you think?”
Martial Emperor Shi Qi had no idea that the real Devilseal Tablet had been replaced with a fake one. As he compared both the Devilseal Tablets, his eyes lit up. “It’s exactly the same… They look exactly the same!”
“Even I can’t tell it’s fake if I haven’t seen the real one,” Martial Emperor Shi Qi exclaimed as he looked at the fake Devilseal Tablet that Zhou Yi replaced and the one he had just made.
“Master, let’s give this fake tablet to the lady… I won’t be going with you. I’m going into closed-door cultivation now so that I can elevate my cultivation base to serve master better,” Zhou Yi said respectfully as he looked at Martial Emperor Shi Qi.
