Chapter 506 - 506: Secret Identity
"Let me guess. You have a special Physique," Long Chen let out as he understood what was happening.
Mu Fan had already told him about people that had special Physiques, which gave them special abilities. Mu Fan had the ability of eyes related to various natural resources diagnosis. He felt like this girl had a similar ability, which made her able to see through objects.
"Can you see through objects?" Long Chen asked.
"You know about special Physiques. Interesting. You are right," She replied as she nodded her head.
"That's an interesting ability. Anyway, why were you imprisoned, and who are you? You still haven't answered that," Long Chen let out as he placed his hand on the bars of her cell.
"I would let you out after you answer. I don't care for whatever you did, but I do need to know. You will be free after that," he added.
"I talked bad about the Little Elder, and someone complained about me to the pirates," the girl replied to Long Chen.
"Ah, That would definitely get you imprisoned. I'm surprised you're still alive. From what I heard, they treat her like a goddess. No one would appreciate having their goddess being talked back about," Long Chen muttered, nodding his head.
He brought his king's sword out of his storage ring and cut the iron bars of the cell, creating an opening for her.
"You are free," Long Chen told her.
He threw a little beast bag towards her. It was something that he had collected from one of the pirates. It contained a flying beast.
"There's a mortal grade flying beast inside. You can use it to leave the ship. If you want to know the direction of your Island or whatever, there is a guy called Biming upstairs. Tell her that I sent you. He will tell you the direction. Leave this ship."
After telling her, he left the place and walked inside the living quarters of the Pirate King.
It was the biggest room in the whole ship. He wanted to rest and let his body heal as he was injured in the fight as well.
He knew that it would take close to two days since he heard Biming mention it when they were on the Snake Monarch, so he realized that he had time to rest.
Still, he left Xia on the deck to keep an eye on things in his absence.
Long Chen sat on Pirate King's bed as he looked at the wounds on his body.
He brought out a life healing pill from his storage ring and swallowed it before he closed his eyes and rested his back against the wall.
The girl was still sitting in the Prison Cell, looking at the beast bag before her.
"Interesting. The new Pirate King is really interesting," She muttered as she stood up.
She picked up the beast bag and left the cell.
She walked towards the deck.
She met up with Pirate Chief Biming, who was shocked to see her.
"L-little Elder? What are you doing here?" Pirate Chief Biming let out with a shocked look on his face as he saw the girl. "Why is your hair green now?"
"It's a long story," the girl replied with a smile on her face.
She was the person that they called Xu Aoxin, the Little Elder.
"If you were here, why didn't you help the Pirate King? It should be impossible for someone to kill him with you around," Pirate Chief Biming asked.
"As I said, it's a long story that I don't want to talk about. Also, the new Pirate King is even more interesting," she let out with a bright smile on her face.
"He is not the new Pirate King. He is a Ghost Temple disciple. He is going back to that place," Pirate Chief Biming replied.
"Nope. Even though I wasn't able to see through his Cultivation, if he was able to defeat a Peak Sky Realm Cultivator, there is no way that he is just a disciple. He is probably an Elder. Also, from his body structure, he doesn't look to be older than twenty. He is definitely a talented gem. If he is really from the Ghost Temple, then they are really lucky, but I doubt he is from there," Xu Aoxin replied as she chuckled.
"Ghost Temple people are never merciful, and their men are beasts. They would never let a girl go free without trying to force her to be with them," She added.
"He is not from there?" Pirate Chief Biming asked in surprise.
"Now that I think about it, there are things that don't make sense with his story. Why would he bother taking over ships because he was lazy when it takes more effort to take over a ship then it takes to tell directions. It seems like he actually didn't know where Ghost Temple is, and he just wanted to get there," Pirate Chief Biming muttered.
He started telling Xu Aoxin about how he met him and what happened after that.
Xu Aoxin grew more interested in Long Chen, the more she heard about him.
"Hehehe, I get it. He is definitely not from Ghost Temple and if I'm not wrong, he will either leave you behind after getting to the barrier of Ghost Island or kill you before leaving. That's why he told me to leave not to get me involved. He seems to be ruthless yet considerate at the same time. Quite contradicting," Xu Aoxin muttered, shaking her head.
Long Chen was still lying on his bed with his eyes closed.
"The girl I met before..." Long Chen muttered out of nowhere.
"What about her? Are you attracted to her? I don't know why, but I find something wrong with her. I can't put my finger on it, but there is definitely something wrong with her," Xun asked him as she appeared beside him.
"I don't know how it's possible, but I think I have seen her before," Long Chen replied to Xun.
"Hmm? Where?" she asked.
"I can't remember, but I feel like she is someone really important," Long Chen muttered.
"I didn't feel that way when I saw her using my Divine Sense, but when I saw her face to face, I felt as if I saw her before," he added.
"You can't remember where?" Xun inquired.
"I can't. It can be a dream that I forgot or some other place. I just don't know at this point," Long Chen muttered.
"Should you really let her leave then? You should've asked her identity more sternly," Xun asked him.
"I already know her identity, though," Long Chen replied.
"What? How do you know her identity?" Xun asked in surprise. "She didn't tell anything about her place or even her name."
"She is on the deck, talking to Biming. I know who she is," Long Chen muttered, shaking his head.
"She is Xu Aoxin, their Little Elder," Long Chen answered.
"What? Why was she in a prison then? Why did you free her?! You should've received the answers from her," Xun asked with a frown on her face. "Also, didn't he saw that she had Blonde hair?"
"You don't know because I blocked your access to my thoughts, but she is way stronger than Pirate King. As for her hair color, I don't care about that. Anyway, she wouldn't answer me, and I wouldn't be able to force her to answer me. If things went south and we started fighting, I would just be forced to use Dark Sacrifice to face her. I don't want to go that route just to get some answers," Long Chen told Xun, shaking his head.
"Would she not just attack you now?" Xun asked in concern. "You killed the Pirate King who helped her."
