Shenxiu lay bored in the courtyard sunbathing.
After this period of recuperation, Wu Mang and the other Shadows had almost recovered.
But he still remained in Fengsha and did not leave.
There was no business at hand anyway, so he took it as a holiday for himself, and at the same time wanted to leave a good impression for Shengzi.
Suddenly, a familiar voice rang out.
Shenxiu froze for a moment and jerked back to look, only to see Su Shi standing behind him with his arms folded back.
Shenxiu rushed over and knelt down on one knee, “Welcome home, Shengzi!”
In his heart, he couldn’t help but wonder.
When did the other party come to him and he didn’t even realize it?
Feeling Su Shu’s profound aura, which was completely different from the previous few days, Shenxiu seemed to realize something, and his pupils couldn’t help but shrink slightly.
“Shengzi, could it be …… that you have made a breakthrough?”
Su Shi nodded and said, “Her Majesty preached the dao, I experienced enlightenment and broke through by chance.”
Shenxiu’s eyes trembled in disbelief.
A real breakthrough?
Shengzi was previously at the Perfect Stage of Golden Elixir Realm, and now he’s already at Nascent Soul Realm?
“Shengzi’s talent is unrivaled, truly there is no one before or after him!”
Su Shi waved his hand, “This is just a coincidence, not worth mentioning.”
“Not worth mentioning?”
Shenxiu shook his head and smiled bitterly.
The last time they met in Yulin City, Su Shi was still at the Late Stage of Foundation Establishment Realm. Now, just a few months later, he had already broken through two consecutive major realms!
A real twenty-year-old Nascent Soul practitioner!
There couldn’t be another one in the entire world!
“I pay my respects to Shengzi.”
Wu Mang and the others sensed the commotion and came into the courtyard one after another, kneeling on one knee in front of Su Shi. The Qi and blood of those people had already recovered, and the injuries were basically healed.
“I thank Senior Shenxiu for this period of time.”
Shenxiu said with a smile, “Shengzi is too polite, it is already my duty.”
Su Shi looked at Wu Mang and the others.
Ever since he took on the role of the sect’s Shengzi, he rarely had time to return to Fengsha City.
The big and small affairs in the city were basically taken care of by Wu Mang and the Shadows.
Wu Mang cupped his hands, “This subordinate is here”
Su Shi said, “From now on, you will occupy the post of commander of Fengsha City, while the deputy commander will be the Shadow One.
Several people stared in unison.
Wu Mang said in a deep voice, “I don’t want to be a commander, I just want to follow Shengzi.”
Several Shadows also nodded their heads, “These subordinates only want to follow Shengzi!”
Su Shi smiled and said, “Don’t worry, Fengsha City is not the end of your journey, there is a wider world waiting for you in the future.”
These few people did their jobs well and faithfully, especially Wu Mang, who was a malleable talent.
Because they had taken the Yin Yang Talisman of Life and Death, their realm was limited to the Early Stage of Golden Elixir Realm.
But there are many strange items in the store that can solve this problem.
As long as the plot point was sufficient, it would be very easy to raise them to Nascent Soul Realm.
Wu Mang understood this in his heart and bowed to the ground, “Many thanks to Shengzi for cultivating me.”
“Thank you, Shengzi.”
The people bowed their heads one after another.
As Shenxiu watched, he couldn’t help but sigh in his heart, “Shengzi truly has a good command over his people. Loyalty, compared to the treasure and technique, is the most precious in the world.”
Shenxiu remembered something and took out a letter from his hand, “On the day Shengzi left, a little girl sent a letter that seemed to be your friend.”
Su Shi took the letter and opened it to look at it.
There was only one line of elegant text on it.
[If you want to know the hidden secrets of Shafan City, please come to Shaxin Kingdom].
Inside the envelope was also a jade pendant with a golden phoenix flower in full bloom engraved on it.
It was clearly the mark of the sender.
Su Shi seemed to have thought of something.
At this moment, Shenxiu asked curiously, “Shengzi, what’s with your coming this time?”
Su Shi said, “Just stopping by for a walk in the desert.”
He could sense that the orientation was to the west, but the exact location could not be determined.
Shenxiu said, “This subordinate knows the Western Region quite well, why don’t I accompany you for a walk? This way there will be someone to take care of you on the way.”
Su Shi thought about it and nodded, “Alright.”
A Shengzi would not go into the wilderness for no reason.
With the Shengzi’s great fortune, if there was an opportunity to be had, by following him he might be able to get a few crumbs.
Western Sand Desert.
A group of soldiers, sheathed in steel, were patrolling over the desert.
Everyone’s eyes were wide open, as if they were searching for something.
Kulbanhan frowned sadly.
“It’s already the last day, where can we find random bandits in the Nascent Soul Realm?”
A few days ago, the second prince of Mochen Kingdom and Great General Kachar were both killed.
The incident had caused an uproar in the oasis countries.
Guo Shi asserted that the assassins were desert bandits.
And the task of capturing the killers was given to the Wild Wolf Squad.
In fact, Guo Shi had hinted that it didn’t matter who killed him, just catch some random bandits to take the blame.
But the realm shouldn’t be too low, or at least above Nascent Soul level.
After all, the slain general was at the Spirit Severing Realm.
If only a few fish and shrimps were caught, it was likely that Mochen Kingdom would become the laughing stock of all nations.
However, it is not known who has leaked the news, but the desert bandits who have been rampant recently have all vanished and disappeared without a trace.
Many days had passed, and still no one had been found.
“If we return empty-handed, I’m afraid we won’t be able to explain to His Majesty.”
Kulbanhan’s brows furrowed.
At this moment, a soldier on the side said, “General, there seem to be two people there.”
Kulbanhan looked up and his eyes lit up.
Only to see two figures not far away sweeping in.
“Looking at the clothes, it looks like they’re not from Oasis.”
“Those two are in the Nascent Soul Realm?”
Kulbanhan grinned and waved his huge hand, “Catch these two thieving bandits for me!”
The soldiers quickly surrounded them.
Su Shi and Shenxiu flew slowly.
The closer they got to the depths of the desert, the clearer the sensation in Su Shi’s heart became, and the ancient bell inside his dantian seemed to tremble slightly.
Shenxiu said, “Shengzi, another 300 miles ahead will bring us to the oasis.”
Su Shi said curiously, “It seems that you often come here?”
Shenxiu smiled and said, “Shengzi just doesn’t know yet, although the desert is barren and dry, the oasis is a treasure, and the girls there are all very beautiful.”
Su Shi shook his head amusedly.
This guy is so skinny, he can’t possibly be drained by girls from the Western Desert, right?
Shenxiu’s chest was pounding, “In this western region, I’m also considered half a local, this face of mine is an entry ticket to ensure that the two of us can travel far without hindrance.”
“That’s very good-.”
The word “good” had yet to be uttered when a group of soldiers came sweeping into the air in the distance and surrounded the two of them in the center.
The strong man in golden armor at the head of the group smiled fiercely, “Surrender without a fight, you are under siege!”
The air was silent for a moment.
Su Shi turned his head to look at Shenxiu, “Are you sure your face is an entry ticket and not a wanted criminal?”
