309 Chapter 309: Specialty of Snake Monarch

    "Anyways, You should work on getting stronger. Soon, it will be time for you to get to work," Lang Jing said.

    "Stop," he was about to leave when Long Chen called out.

    "I need my Devil Hunter Beast and my sword back. You already have an incurable poison in me. You don't need a hostage," he said.

    "It's true that I don't need to keep a hostage, but I'm still going to keep him with me for a while longer. You'll get him back when you finish my work in the future," Lang Jing said.

    "As for your sword, you can have it back. It's good, but not good enough for me," He brought out the King's Sword and threw it towards Long Chen.

    The strange thing was that whenever Long Chen used the sword, there would always be a sword aura accompanying the sword, but there was none when Lang Jing brought it out.

    'Is the sword hiding its aura? That is only possible if it has developed a spirit though?' Long Chen wondered as he caught the sword.

    Lang Jing left without saying anything else.

    "Welcome back, my friend," Long Chen muttered as his gaze passed through the sharp blade of the sword.

    He placed the sword back inside his Ancient Ring as he walked back to his room.

    He tried to close the room, but he realized that half the door was missing.

    He could guess what had happened, but he still felt odd.

    Fortunately, the place had more rooms. He shifted into a different room and closed the door.

    He sat on the bed as he called out for Xun.

    "It sounds like it's high time you explain to me why you wanted me to catch the Snake Monarch at all cost," He asked Xun who was sitting beside him.

    "There are 3 reasons. Firstly, Snake Monarch has an ancient bloodline. It has the bloodline of a God Beast Ancient Snake of Darkness. It'll be a big help for you in the future if it even manages to awaken 1% of its ancient bloodline. Its strength will increase many folds. It was the best opportunity to catch it when its strength was still weak," Xun explained.

    "The second reason is also for your own good. The Demon Monarch is a species that has gone almost extinct, but it's a known fact that if one manages to find and tame a Demon Monarch, they will have many more lucky encounters. That's why the Demon Monarch is also known as the beast of great fortune," She continued.

    "Quite interesting. I never knew a beast could be so useful," Long Chen said with a surprised look on his face.

    "What's the third reason?" he asked.

    "The third reason? Well it's just for fun. I like watching your enthusiastic discussions," Xun said as she started laughing.

    Her pearls of laughter resounded in his ears and sounded like a beautiful melody.

    "You know, you look really beautiful when you laugh," Long Chen exclaimed as he gazed at her.

    "You're talking nonsense again," she stopped laughing as she said in an annoyed tone.

    "I'm not kidding. I've always known it, but I just felt like saying it just now. Might be because I don't want to keep any feeling hidden. From now on, I'm just going to be honest with everyone. I won't give my heart demon any more strength by restricting my actions," Long Chen said.

    "Interesting. So you've decided to be true to yourself in front of the world. Anyways, I'll accept the compliment. This Queen is born beautiful after all," Xun said with a proud smile.

    "Hahahaha, it's good that you know," Long Chen couldn't help but laugh.

    "Anyway, did you get any clues about the new orb?" he asked.

    "A little. It should be within 1000 meters of range from us. I can't be more specific than that," she said.

    "A thousand meters of range? As far as I know, there are quite a lot of things in this area. There are the courtyards of a few disciples, the Ranking Hall, and the Skill Hall. So the orb will be in one of those places, unless it's underground, waiting to be found."

    "It shouldn't be underground," she said.

    "How can you be sure about that?" he asked.

    "Well, the thing is that the orbs are meant to be found. Unless they're in tombs or dungeons, they will always be out in the open," she said.

    "Let's hope that's the case," he said with a thoughtful look on his face.

    "Anyways, all 3 possible places are problematic. I can't enter someone's courtyard to search. As for the Ranking Hall and Skill Hall, that's even tougher," Long Chen said.

    "You can't give up. Finding a new law would be a big boost for you and your mission," Xun motivated Long Chen.

    "True. Even if it's tough, I should at least try. I'll do it at night," Long Chen said.

    "Good," Xun said before she disappeared.

    Long Chen also began his cultivation as he waited for the night.

    A few hours passed and it was finally dark outside.

    Long Chen used his divine sense to check his surroundings, and after seeing that everything was normal, he left his courtyard.

    He walked to the nearest courtyard. He glanced through the window since he needed to see the place he wanted to teleport to.

    Long Chen teleported inside the room and silently began searching through the place.

    He searched the whole place, but he didn't find any orb. Though he did manage to find a few articles of a girl's clothing.

    He teleported outside and moved to another courtyard. He teleported inside, but he was surprised when he was able to hear loud moaning sounds coming from the bedroom.

    'Geez, you guys sure do know about enjoyment,' He thought as he began searching throughout the place.

    In less than 20 minutes, he managed to check every place in the courtyard. The only place that was remaining was the bedroom. It didn't matter how much he hated it, he still had to go check that place as well.
