Chapter 587 - 587: Answer Without Question
" Get out of my way. I don't have time for that old man, and I don't want to hurt you," The young man said as he looked at the middle-aged man from the Dark Tortoise Clan. "I, Xuanwu Qin, will never go back until I explore the whole universe and have some fun!"
The Young Man was from the Xuanwu Clan, which was the Royal clan of the Black Tortoise. The clan master was one of the Nine God Beast Kings along with the White Tiger King and the Dragon King.
"Young Master Xuanwu, I would respect your decision if I didn't have the orders from the Clan Master. My apologies, but I won't leave you behind. Please come peacefully," the middle-aged man said.
" And if I don't?" Xuanwu Qin asked with an amused smile on his face.
"Then I would be forced to use force on you," the middle-aged man said.
"What? You are really saying that you would attack someone from the Royal lineage and injure me?" Xuanwu Qin asked as he frowned.
" No, I wouldn't injure you, but there are many other ways to take you without injuring you," The Middle-Aged man said as he shook his head.
"Oho? I highly doubt that," Xuanwu Qin said as he smiled. He started walking away towards the door, but the middle-aged man appeared before him and reached out his hand.
Xuanwu Qin didn't move and let him catch his hand.
The middle-aged man felt like something was wrong. This shouldn't be as simple as it has been. Why was it that the young man wasn't resisting, but his face changed colors as he saw a smirk on the face of Xuanwu Qin.
" He escaped! It's a clone!" The middle-aged man let out as he started running away, but before he could get too far, an explosion occurred.
The explosion shook the whole world and made it tremble. The Royal Palace was wiped off the face of this planet. The Sole Emperor of this world also died in this explosion along with the entire Royal Family. The future of that planet was changed in an instant.
A blurry figure became visible after the fires disappeared. His clothes were still intact, and it didn't seem like he was affected by the fire.
It was the middle-aged man that had come to take the Young Master of the Black Tortoise Clan with him.
That man sighed as he looked towards the sky.
"He affected another planet's destiny with his actions. Sigh, Patriarch will be really upset. He escaped as well," the middle-aged man muttered.
Back on a different planet, Long Chen was still in the Hall of Death. He was going through the Temple Sacrifice.
He had just finished battling Wang Zun and left that room and appeared in a different room.
The room had a blood-red floor that was somewhat sticky, but not too much.
The room was thirty meters long and twenty meters wide.
There were spirits floating around in the room that kept their eyes on Long Chen.
"Answer our question!" A voice echoed in the room suddenly.
Long Chen looked around to see who was speaking, but he found no one other than the spirits.
"Answer our questions!" The voice echoed again.
"You haven't asked me a question!" Long Chen let out an announcement.
"Answer our questions!" The voice again said.
"It's useless,' Long Chen muttered as he shook his head. He looked to the front and saw the door on the other side of the room.
"That seems to be the exit," Long Chen muttered. He was about to take a step forward when he saw someone else enter that room from behind him.
Long Chen noticed that person as another disciple from the sect that was taking part in the event with him.
"Answer our questions!" The voice again echoed in the room.
"What question?" The newcomer also asked the same question as Long Chen had asked.
"Answer our questions!" That voice repeated the words.
"What are you talking about? Fuck this! I'm going ahead," The man said as he took a step forward and started walking towards the door at the front, but as soon as he took a step forward, a spirit moved and passed through the body of that man.
Long Chen saw everything with a frown on his face. After the Spirit left the body of the man, the man's body split apart in half and fell on the ground.
"So this room is a trial too. The spirits are the weapons, and if I leave without answering whatever that voice of asking, they'll attack me. The problem is that I don't even know the question how can I answer it," Long Chen muttered as he frowned.
"Fuck it; it's not like spirits can even harm me. I can touch them and beat the crap out of them. They can't enter my body and harm me like him," He let out as he saw the man's body lying on the ground.
"Answer our question!" The voice said again.
" What is that test? I don't know about it?" One of the Elders inquired as he watched Long Chen outside the Hall of Death.
"No idea. I don't know anything about it either," Another Elder replied.
"What is this? How can he answer without questions?" Mu Yun asked Ruan Yi as she frowned.
"I don't know anything about it either," Ruan Yi replied as she shook her head.
"Sigh, that is basically having him fight blind. He may not be able to pass through this trial. This is where his journey ends," Another elder said. "Yeah, hopefully, he won't make a mistake. He should crush that crystal and leave that place. This journey is already over for him. There is no reason to put his life in danger."
"First, question my answer. Then I will answer your question," Long Chen replied as he shook his head.
"Answer our question!" the voice asked again.
It seemed as if it ignored Long Chen completely.
"The answer is that you're an idiot," Long Chen said as he sighed.
He wanted to answer, but without having a question, it was impossible.
He was about to start walking as he prepared to take care of the ghosts, but he heard the voice again.
"Correct answer!" The Voice said.
Long Chen's expressions turned weird as he heard the words.
"What the fuck?" He let out. He couldn't believe that it worked. How was it possible? That wasn't even an answer and something he said in annoyance. Was this because someone who wants an answer without question is an Idiot, and that was the answer? Long Chen couldn't help but wonder.
After he didn't hear the voice for a long time, he believed that the test was over. He still prepared himself to take care of the spirits if they tried to attack him as he started walking.
Long Chen began walking, but no spirits attacked him.
He smiled as he understood that the test was over. It was pretty difficult, yet pretty simple.
He walked past all the spirits, reached the door at the end of the room, and stepped out.
"What the heck? That was the answer to the question that wasn't a question?"
"Seems like it. I never would've guessed. That kid is a genius."
"Congrats, Elder Mu. Your son passed another trial. He's a genius!"
All the Elders started talking as they were amazed at the answer and how easily Long Chen passed this strange trial.
"This kid is really performing better than I expected. I hope he can keep going like that. He has a really good chance," Ruan Yi muttered as she smiled.
The Disciples that were standing behind were amazed at Long Chen's performance too.
"Did I really see Elder Ruan smile?"
