Di Jiu laughed, took out a golden invitation, and said, “I have an invitation from the Xian Family. We’ll go directly to the Xian Family.”
“Ah…” Qu Fang looked at the invitation in Di Jiu’s hands in shock and remained a little dazed for a moment. Di Jiu, who was already holding onto Qu Fang’s shoulders, walked to the array door entrance of the Xian Ocean.
Upon seeing Qu Fang and Di Jiu actually enter the Xian Ocean, Xing Xi was stunned. She had intentionally let Qu Fang see her. Based on her investigation on Qu Fang and the Qu Family, Qu Fang would surely escape from this place without notice immediately.
She had not expected that Qu Fang would actually enter the Xian Ocean with a young man…
Wait a minute. That young man seemed a little weird, especially that saber on his back.
Xing Xi did not hesitate long before she followed them into the Xian Ocean.
“Big Brother, do you see it? That’s the Xian Planet City up ahead. I heard that when the Xian Family came, the Xian Ocean was still a lonely planet. The Xian Family liked this place and changed this planet into the Xian Planet. Although this place is filled with ocean water, there is too much good stuff in the Xian Ocean.” After entering the Xian Ocean, Qu Fang seemed to have forgotten that a woman named Xing Xi was waiting for him outside.
Di Jiu’s gaze also fell on the Xian Planet City, which had not been built in the ocean but on a handful of territories in the Xian Ocean.
At the moment, there were Illumination Arrays everywhere outside the Xian Planet City. Since the Xian Planet was not illuminated by sunlight, these Illumination Arrays made the Xian Planet City look even more colorful.
“Not bad.” When Di Jiu said that, his Spiritual Force scanned Xing Xi, who was following them.
Qu Fang added, “The Xian Family’s structure is very large. They treat all foreign cultivators equally well. We don’t need any divine crystals to enter the Xian Planet or the Xian Planet City.”
Puzzled, Di Jiu looked at Qu Fang. “In that case, why were you still outside the Xian Planet? Wouldn’t it have been better to go in?”
If Di Jiu knew that he was being chased down by someone, he would definitely not stay in that place. Even if he stayed there, he would stay inside the Xian Planet City, not outside.
Qu Fang touched his head awkwardly. “It’s not that I didn’t want to stay here, but there is no way. Although divine crystals are not needed to enter this place, staying inside requires divine crystals and the price is not low. Besides, the teleportation leading to the Xian Ocean also requires divine crystals.”
“What a good strategy!” Di Jiu sighed. The Xian Family had set up all sorts of teleportation in the Xian Planet City as well as various inns. If they obtained divine crystals that way, would they still need to collect entrance fees?
After the two of them entered the Xian Planet City, the whole city seemed very lively and they saw many cultivators coming and going. Di Jiu scanned the place with his Spiritual Force, only to see that there were many Primordial Chaos experts and even some Dao Integration experts.
“Big Brother, I’m afraid it’s very difficult to find an inn. Usually, many cultivators are coming and going, but there are more today. I suppose that many of them came for the mystic area… Oh, that’s right. I also heard that the daughter of the Xian Family, Xian Wuchan, is getting engaged…”
Di Jiu patted Qu Fang. “We don’t need to look for a place to stay. Since I have an invitation, we’ll go straight to the Xian Family.”
Indeed, the atmosphere in the Xian Family was very intense. Even though there was still some time before the mystic area would open, people were constantly coming over with invitations.
Di Jiu soon discovered that many of the invitations presented by the cultivators were different. The majority of them were golden ones like his, while some of them were purple-gold. There were even invitations refined by Void Divine Jade.
In other words, his invitation was the least significant of them all.
Before Di Jiu could take out the invitation, Xing Xi landed in front of Di Jiu and Qu Fang. “I have some things to discuss with the two of you. Come with me and have a seat.”
Di Jiu deliberately sized up Xing Xi before his gaze finally fell on Xing Xi’s chest. He shook his head subconsciously as though he was not satisfied.
He was waiting for Xing Xi to make a move. His main target was not Xing Xi, but the Xian Family. If Xing Xi dared to make a move here, Di Jiu was sure that the Xian Family would stop her. When that happened, he could take a look at the strength of the Xian Family.
In Di Jiu’s opinion, even if the woman before him was an ordinary Dao Integration cultivator, he was afraid that he was not her match. This was what his intuition told him for no reason.
However, Di Jiu hadn’t expected Xing Xi to be calm. It seemed as though she did not care about him judging her. She only used her domain to bind Di Jiu and stared at him. She could see that the reason Qu Fang had not gone out was not that she had misjudged him, but because Di Jiu had appeared.
“I don’t even know you, do I? I’m a guest of the Xian Family. Why are you obstructing my path?” While Di Jiu said that, he took out a golden invitation and waved it.
Xing Xi said coldly, “I’ll give you three seconds.”
Without hesitation, Di Jiu drew his Heavenly Aqua Saber from behind and yelled sternly, “Who are you? Why are you forcibly taking me and my friend away?”
Di Jiu did not believe that the Xian Family would not do anything upon seeing him take out his Dharma treasure.
When she saw Di Jiu’s actions, anger flashed in Xing Xi’s eyes and her Primordial Chaos domain suddenly skyrocketed. Before she could make a move, an unhurried voice was heard. “All the Daoists who came here from afar are our guests. For the sake of the Xian Family, please do not fight here.”
A faint cultivator’s pressure could be felt, and Di Jiu immediately sensed that this man’s strength was not bad. Although he had not seen who had spoken, Di Jiu could sense it from that pressure.
Compared to that person, Nuo La and Gou Wansheng were the most powerful people that Di Jiu had ever met. Di Jiu was now certain that this person was not inferior to Nuo La and Gou Wansheng.
Sure enough, Xing Xi had also sensed that. She frowned slightly and slowly withdrew her domain.
“Daoist Di, I never expected you to come. Ha ha ha ha…” Right at that moment, Xian Cang, who had invited Di Jiu, hurriedly ran out.
Di Jiu replied with a smile, “Of course, you invited me here after all. Once I was done with my business, I naturally hurried over.”
Xian Cang was smiling wide. “Daoist Di, please come in…”
“I was also invited.” To Di Jiu’s surprise, Xing Xi took out a purple-gold invitation, which was a higher-level invitation than his.
Xian Cang hurriedly replied, “All of you are my guests. Please come in…”
Without needing Xian Cang to say anything, another female cultivator came out and led Xing Xi in.
After Xing Xi left, Xian Cang said, “Daoist Di, I only had a golden invitation at the time. I didn’t mean to give you that. Since you’re here, I have to arrange the best place for you to rest.”
He was already sure that Di Jiu was an exceptional person.
Di Jiu did not care. He supposed that Xian Cang would have said the same to anyone else.
However, Xian Cang was not completely flaunting. He indeed arranged a small courtyard cave abode for Di Jiu and Qu Fang. Regardless of the Divine Spirit Qi, the surrounding area was at least very quiet.
Once Xian Cang left, Qu Fang said eagerly, “Big Brother, Xing Xi seems to have a very important background.”
“Let’s ignore her. She must have stolen that invitation from someone else. I reckon that this woman will sneak up on us in a while. I will surprise her when that happens.” Now that he had seen Xing Xi’s invitation, Di Jiu knew that Qu Fang had hidden in the wrong place.
Xing Xi might not have necessarily found Qu Fang at first, but Qu Fang had hidden in the Xian Ocean. Unexpectedly, Xing Xi had also come to this place and they had happened to meet. Her motive for coming here was the top-notch Supreme Glazed True Silver, and she would go to the Chaos Realm afterward.
Di Jiu supposed that Xing Xi would not let this matter go just like that. That woman would definitely sneak in here immediately because she had not taken him and Qu Fang seriously at all.
