The Golden Key could not be placed into any regular spatial storage, but Mustard Seed was different. Even with the Whirling World’s strict laws, it could not restrict Mustard Seed. It was an amazing piece of treasure.
Vivian was taken out of Mustard Seed again which greatly confused him. Albert briefly talked about the situation, and Vivian was incredibly excited thinking about it. That meant they were no longer just walking pieces of bait. Putting the golden keys into Mustard Seed meant there would be no problems no matter how many golden keys they collected.
After four hours, Albert and Vivian advanced about fifty kilometers ahead. It was still a complete wasteland around them. Other than the blood moon in the skies reddening a little more, there were no changes at all. The deeper they walked, the more apprehensive Vivian felt.
He was worried that another group would appear.
Albert did not put all the golden keys into Mustard Seed, leaving one on him. That was to attract weaker warriors to come to fight him over the key. They would think that he was the prey, but in Albert’s eyes, they were the prey.
After advancing for another kilometer, they saw the distant figure starting to get closer to them.
When the person saw Morten, he immediately stopped. Even though it was very far, and they could not even see that person’s expression. However, it was obvious from that person’s actions that he seemed a bit fearful of Edgar.
Since he was fearful, he would probably not attack out of a sudden.
Albert raised an eyebrow, ignoring that person. If the other party did not attack Morten, he would not attack them.
As he walked forward for another five minutes, the person that stopped in the distance suddenly started to walk toward Albert and Vivian quickly.
Albert frowned as he looked at the approaching person. That person was incredibly tall and well-built. There was blood flowing from his forehead, and his lips were bloody too. His body was quite damaged, so he had probably just gone through a battle not too long ago.
When that person saw Albert’s face, he seemed to be trying to determine who the other party was. Albert raised an eyebrow, not saying anything.
After a few more moments, that person greeted Morten, “Are you from a third-grade world?”
There were differences between warriors from third-grade worlds and second-grade worlds. It was obvious just from the attire. Albert did not have any special markings on his clothes, and he was with Vivian, who was not that strong. It meant the other person was quite sure that Albert was from a third-grade world.
Albert turned to look at that person as well. That person did not have any special markings on his clothes either, so that person was also from a third-grade world. The person seemed polite in Albert’s eyes, so he nodded honestly.
That person took a deep breath and introduced himself.
That person was from a ninth-grade clan in Sky Peak Continent and was a chosen disciple. His name was Chad Lee.
Sky Peak Continent was around the same level as Lycan Continent. They were not at the top of third-grade worlds, but not weak either. Chad was definitely among the stronger warriors around.
He was a lone warrior, and would regularly move alone. Before he came into Chaos City, he never thought of advancing with anyone else. However, after he entered, he had to lower his head.
When he saw Albert from afar, he did not greet Albert because he was uncertain. He only went closer to Albert after seeing what Albert wore.
Vivian blinked as he said, “So you came here to form a group with us?”
Chad nodded, he looked at Albert helplessly, “For you two, advancing with someone you don’t know probably doesn’t seem safe, but I can guarantee you that I won’t do anything that crosses the line if you don’t stab me in the back. Those pieces of trash are just trying to cause trouble for the warriors from third-grade worlds.”
As he said that, he took off the key he had hanging around his waist, “Some warriors from second-grade worlds are so shameless that they’re just staying put in one place to steal from us third-grade world warriors. I was planning on exchanging my keys for some treasures at the Stage of the Nine earlier.”
