The Blue Fox Family (3)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Back then, Gu Xijiu could also tell that there was a mysterious magnetic field on the square, but she could not sense what the mystery was at the time. After she left the Blue Fox clan, a series of events happened to the group, but she did not pay much attention to it. Nonetheless, she still had a deep impression of the place and remembered the general layout here well.
Now, the sapphire tiles in the square were still there, but the jade blue fox sculptures had disappeared. Instead, they were replaced by an extraordinary dome-shaped building. This structure hadeight metal spikes on the top of it as well as a fox’s face. The materials used to build the structure were also something that Gu Xijiu had never seen before. It was like a very new type of composite material that was blue in color like water under the sun and was not made of soil or gold.
Gu Xijiu’s line of sight fell on the face of the fox on top of the structure, which looked similar to the blue fox’s totem that she had seen before. At first glance, she could tell that this building was newly built. Perhaps, it was a gift from Guan Yaning’s people. After all, the material of this building did not belong to this world.
The structure of the building resembled a place that was occupied by a general or commander. If Gu Xijiu were not mistaken, it should be the base of these outsiders. The facilities here were extremely advanced and were guarded by four sergeants at the door. When they saw Guan Yaning coming over, they saluted him together in unison.
Guan Yaning just nodded slightly to acknowledge them. He then used his pupils to open the door to the dome-shaped building. Even the door was covered with the face of a fox. It did not open from the sides nor the top or bottom; instead, a hole seemed to emerge from right in the middle of the door. After entering, the door immediately closed, preventing any intruders from following him in.
When the admiral had opened the door, Gu Xijiu was standing invisibly behind him and wanted to follow him in using her teleportation ability. However, she did not expect the building to block her ability to teleport. In the end, she merely crashed into the door!
Although the door did not look like it was made of any particularly hard material, Gu Xijiu found that half of her arm was faintly numb after the collision. Upon closer observation, she noticed that the door seemed to be made of a liquid, which was rather odd. Without having to put much thought into it, she could immediately tell that the liquid was poisonous.Fortunately, Gu Xijiu’s body was highly resistant to poisons.
Nevertheless, it had, unfortunately, alerted the four sergeants guarding the entrance. Since Gu Xijiu had used her invisibility spell, they could not see anything suspicious. The men quickly searched around the vicinity but found no target that they had to abolish. In the end, they simply looked at each other confusedly.
“What the hell hit the door? Was that the wind?”
“Bullshit! The wind has no such power. It sounded a person had hit the door. I am quite sure that it was a person…”
“How can we not see it? If it is a person, they can’t escape our eyes. Was it a ghost?”
“Nonsense! How can there be ghosts in this world?”
“There may not have a ghost in our world, but the people of this world seem to fear them. Furthermore, the people on this planet seem to practice some kind of sorcery. It is hard for us to say that there are no ghosts here. We have killed too many people. Perhaps some people have turned into ghosts and are looking for revenge.”
“Heck! You don’t scare yourself. Even a ghost cannot make its way into this place.”
“Yeah, it can’t go in, so it will wander outside the door.”
“What’s the use? I am not afraid of it. If the ghost dares to come over, I will shatter it into pieces!”
“To be honest, we have always been lone rangers. Even when we were in the Blue Fox Planet, we never put the king as a priority. Why are we worshipping Lan Yue as the king in this stupid Starry Crescent Land? We even allowed him to live in our best facilities. Although the blue fox family is also a descendant of the Blue Fox Planet, they have been living here for a thousand years, and their bloodline has long been impure. I really don’t know what our leader is thinking.”
