Chapter 769.2 [ Egg, Truth, Favor ]
“That is indeed what happened. On that day, Bao’er, Ye Kong, and the others headed to the Potential Alliance War Beast Shop because they wanted to purchase some valuable war beasts. At first glance, they noticed the Three-Legged Golden Crow Tribe’s Gemini Egg which looked completely ordinary on the outside. Who would have expected the shop assistants would look down on them due to their appearance, insult them, then summon the city guards. By threatening to charge them with all kinds of crimes, they forced Ye Kong and the others to pay a very high price for the Golden Flying Dragon and the Golden Crow Tribe’s Gemini Egg. I believe City Lord Tu Hai and your butler, Jiao Shi, are already aware of this entire matter. After I returned, although I could not be sure, I felt that this egg was a very special and extremely precious Gemini egg that had, for some reason, ended up at the Potential Alliance War Beast Shop for sale.” Yue Yang’s explanation gave Lord Ling Yun a headache while City Lord Tu Hai wanted to find a crack to crawl into.
Thankfully, Bao’er had bought the Gemini egg.
Otherwise, if the Gemini egg had met with an unexpected accident, Rizhao City would surely be bathed in rivers of blood once Wu Hai found out about it.
After the shock of it all had subsided a bit, City Lord Tu Hai noticed a problem: “Third Young Master, you said Gemini egg just now? Would not that mean there is one more Gemini egg?”
His question caused the atmosphere to become strained once again. If there was another Gemini egg that was missing things would not go well for them. If Prince Wu Hai found out about the other Gemini egg, surely he wouldn’t give up on it.
Yue Yang faintly smiled, and his sunny smile brought inexplicable confidence to the crowd.
He gently waved his hand and gestured for everyone to remain calm. “Although I did not see the entire thing with my own eyes, even after combining these varied pieces of information, I can barely make a guess.
“Half a month ago, within the borders of Ling Yun country, there was a reward offered for killing the two vicious dragons who, while pursuing the flying dragon herd, suddenly attacked several groups of mercenaries. In addition, the Warriors’ Guild also posted a task, finding those two vicious dragons’ trail. The amount of the bounty for that task was two million gold coins, provided by an anonymous source. This reward for killing the two vicious dragons was paid out about half a month ago, twelve days ago to be exact. The Gemini egg, from birth till now, is not more than fifteen days old, and the tiny life inside has been showing signs of weakness. This means that the mother must have been injured just before giving birth, or gave birth prematurely, most likely both.”
(TN: I know many terms have been used for the Warriors’ Guild such as Martial Guild or Martial Arts Guild, but from here on we will synchronize and use Warriors’ Guild.)
Everyone had calmed down and were listening intently to Yue Yang’s reasoning.
“That Gemini egg has a Gemini twin life link, proving that it has a sibling and that its sibling is still alive. Secondly, that Gemini egg has a bloodline life link with Eighth Prince Wu Hai of the Golden Crow Tribe. These two pieces of information bring me to a bold conjecture.” Yue Yang grinned before continuing, “Eighth Prince’s concubine, while returning to Sun Valley, met with an attack from those two vicious dragons. Even though she was under the protection of two Heaven Rankers, she was still hurt, and this caused her to give birth prematurely. In order to escape the two dragons’ pursuit, she was forced to lay the Gemini twin eggs prematurely.
“One egg was full of energy and should have shone as brightly as a radiant sun, as is characteristic of descendants of the Golden Crow Tribe. The other egg was more inclined towards its mother’s species. It did not have sufficient life energy, which caused it to appear dim and dull. It seemed weak, on the verge of death. Since they were still being pursued, they needed to depart at once. Due to these facts, the mother or her guards might have thought that the egg was not viable, forcing them into burying it quickly. Perhaps they buried it in a secret place but left a mark behind so that it could be located and the egg retrieved…
“However, due to the vicious dragons’ attacks, the Warriors’ Guild had sent out mercenaries to hunt the dragons down. During this endeavor, they must have found the hastily buried egg. Then, thinking it was a normal grey sparrow egg, they brought it back to Rizhao City. In Ling Yun Country, the bounty of two million gold coins, obviously, was not a reward for killing the two vicious dragons but rather to find the two vicious dragons’ trail. It must have been the mother or her guards, still hoping to get the egg back, that had paid the bounty for that task…
If the City Lord were to immediately rush over to the Warriors’ Guild, then take on the task of searching for the dragons’ trail, he would probably be able to find and follow their trail until he found the missing mother, anxiously waiting for some good news.”
“Thank you so much!” City Lord Tu Hai hadn’t shed any tears for thousands of years. Yet, today, after hearing Yue Yang’s words, he suddenly felt the urge to cry.
He had never felt so grateful towards anyone before.
Yue Yang could be said to be his life’s greatest lucky star.
Without the presence of Third Young Master, the whole city would have met with an unavoidable tragedy. Misery and hatred would have continued for thousands of years! Now, as soon as he appeared, he was like a beacon of bright light. He lit up a path to salvation for Rizhao City which had been enshrouded in darkness and gloom.
Tu Hai bowed deeply, “Third Young Master, words can’t express the gratitude in my heart. I won’t waste my breath on unnecessary words, please sit here and wait for a while. I will return once I settle this matter, then we will drink together until we get drunk!”
With that, he rushed towards the Warriors’ Guild as fast as he could go.
He used his authority as City Lord to find out the details pertaining to the task of finding the trail of the vicious dragons, as well as who had paid the bounty. Then, he immediately rushed there, ready to quickly retrieve Wu Hai’s beloved concubine, then deliver her to him, like a surprise gift for His Highness Eighth Prince Wu Hai of the Golden Crow Tribe, to make amends for his prior mistakes. Of course, he knew very well that this opportunity, that had been turned over to him, was entirely due to Third Young Master! Third Young Master could have sent his own subordinates to pick them up, then returned them to Prince Wu Hai, gaining all the credit himself…
However, Third Young Master had not done so.
Instead, he had given him the opportunity to right his wrongs.
This is what moved the heart of City Lord Tu Hai the most.
“No wonder everybody speaks so highly of Third Young Master, I’ve seen countless so-called geniuses throughout my life, yet the only one that makes me think he is worthy of that title is you.” Lord Ling Yun couldn’t help but let out a long sigh.
“My Lord, I’m only a junior of the younger generation. How could I dare to compete for such an honor with someone from the glorious older generation, like you Lord? Your existence is like the sun, shining brightly in the sky!” Yue Yang humbly replied…
“How did you figure out that I am the Lord of this country?” Lord Ling Yun was stunned. He thought that he had been acting very low key. He did not expect that Yue Yang would still be able to see through him…
“… ” Yue Yang smiled but did not explain.
“Hahahahahaha!” Lord Ling Yun suddenly came to his senses. Surely that Tu Hai, during the tense moments before, had been stealing glances at him, silently asking for help, which had in turn been seen by Third Young Master. Third Young Master had still been carefully observing them even throughout the entire tense situation just now. It was impossible not to be awed by this young man! Third Young Master was very mysterious.
Perhaps, he would be interested in… that. With this thought in mind, Lord Ling Yun wanted to test Yue Yang, “Dare I ask Third Young Master if your trip here, this time, is for the sake of the ancient ruins?”
“Ancient ruins?” Yue Yang indicated that he didn’t know anything about this, he really didn’t know because he had just come up from Tong Tian Tower and had been rushing from Southern Heaven Realm to reach Western Heaven Realm’s Gate. Where would he have heard about ancient ruins?
“In the strange realm of the Snow Plains, amidst the black waters of the White Mountains, it is said that due to the shifting of the terrain, the mountains collapsed and the earth cracked, which revealed an ancient ruin with a ten-thousand-year history. It is suspected to be the remains of a city belonging to the Conquering Empress or an even older entity. Although the Central Palace Hall did not release any statement about it, throughout the realm, all Heaven Rankers have heard about it and taken action. I myself lack the strength required. I am unable to explore these ten-thousand-year-old forbidden ruins, I originally thought that Third Young Master wanted to travel to these ruins and just happened to pass by here.”
As soon as Lord Ling Yun finished speaking, Yue Yang’s interest suddenly surged.
Empress Fei Wen Li’s Forbidden Realm? Could any of her relics be found there? What about the old general who used to chase after her, would he show up there as well?
If only the old pirate, Cook Caribbean appeared there, the entire matter would be much easier to deal with. If he could find him, he would just have him answer all the questions he had regarding the current state and what was happening in Heaven Realm!
