Since the other party took the initiative to talk to him, and what he said had something to do with him.
If he did not answer, it would inevitably arouse the other party’s suspicion. Moreover, from Mandra’s memory, Jagoan also learned that Blood-faced Scholar was like a wise man under the command of Sage of the Distinct Sea. He had extraordinary wisdom.
If it weren’t for the fact that he was more intelligent than ordinary people, he wouldn’t have been able to break through the realm and become a Heavenly Spirit Realm Master at such a young age.
In case of alerting the enemy, Jagoan stopped and looked at him with a frown. “Looking for me?”
This reaction was in line with Mandra’s character. If Jagoan, like the blood-faced scholar, bowed to the other party, he would expose his flaws, because Mandra would never do so.
“Yes, Fourth Young Master, please come with me.” The blood-faced scholar did not doubt it and made a gesture of invitation to Jagoan.
At the moment, Blood-faced Scholar led the way, and Jagoan and Prince Krueger followed him.
Although Jagoan’s gaze did not fall on the blood-faced scholar, he was secretly probing his opponent with his Divine Sense.
The realm of the blood-faced scholar looked like entry level of the second stage of Heavenly Spirit Realm. But Jagoan faintly felt that there seemed to be something wrong with the other party. But he couldn’t tell what was wrong. He could only wait and see what the other party would do next.
When they reached a fork in the road, Blood-faced Scholar led Jagoan to turn to the right.
Jagoan stopped and pointed to the left. “Aren’t we going there?”
On the left was the place where Sage of the Distinct Sea cultivated.
The blood-faced scholar turned around and said to Jagoan with a smile, “Sage of the Distinct Sea wants me to invite you here. We’ll be there soon.”
Jagoan looked in the direction of the other party’s finger.
After walking another three hundred meters, they would arrive.
When he stepped forward again, he seemed to ask unintentionally, “Why is he looking for me? I don’t think I’ve caused any trouble.”
After that, he carefully observed the expression of Blood-faced Scholar.
The blood-faced scholar turned his head and seemed to be thinking about something.
After a while, he shook his head and said, “He didn’t tell me the details. He just asked me to bring you here to see him after seeing you, Fourth Young Master. When you see him in a while, Fourth Young Master, you can ask him.”
The three of them were all Heavenly Spirit Realm cultivators. Although they didn’t fly in the air, their steps were fast. The distance of 300 meters was over in the time they were talking.
In front of Jagoan was a mottled palace. It was obvious that it had been magnificent many years ago. Even though it was now ruined, it still added a sense of history to it.
At this moment, the door of the palace was half-closed.
Just as Jagoan and Prince Krueger were about to step in, the blood-faced scholar quietly stopped Prince Krueger. “Mr. Quinn, please wait outside…”
Prince Krueger only listened to Jagoan’s orders.
Hearing the request, Jagoan nodded and said to him, “Wait here for me.”
Prince Krueger was a puppet personally refined by Jagoan. Even if Jagoan did not say anything, it did not affect his order to Prince Krueger. Therefore, it did not matter whether Prince Krueger was waiting inside or outside the palace.
Jagoan stepped into the palace first, followed by Blood-faced Scholar.
As soon as he entered the palace, Jagoan immediately felt traces of spiritual Qi fluctuation in the void. His fingertips moved slightly.
Soon, the direction in which these spiritual Qis drifted was outlined in Jagoan’s heart.
There was a formation set up in the palace!
Without batting an eyelid, Jagoan looked around and saw that the palace was empty. He turned around and looked at Blood-faced Scholar more than 30 meters away.
“Why am I alone?”
“Because…” The blood-faced scholar still had a smile on his face. “This is a trap.”
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
A series of trembling sounds rang out. Silver threads immediately appeared around Jagoan. The thin lines intertwined like a big net.
Under the silver light, formation runes appeared at the foot of Jagoan. These runes made one feel as if their throats were pressed by a blade and their vigor were stagnant. It was difficult to breathe. The source of this sharp aura was from runes above Jagoan.
Looking up, Jagoan immediately saw that on the dome of the palace above, silver light was hidden. Sharp long swords were hanging high and pointed sharply at Jagoan!
“Bright Light Soul-stealing Sword Formation.” The blood-faced scholar smiled and said, “You pretend to be the fourth young master. You’d better not move. Otherwise, this Murder Array, which can kill a cultivator at the third stage of Heavenly Spirit Realm, can crush you in an instant.”
“Huh?” Jagoan looked at him. “How did you know I’m a fake?”
When he found that there was a formation in the palace, Jagoan knew that his identity had been exposed. What puzzled him now was how the other party found out that he was a fake.
From his change, Jagoan believed that it was absolutely flawless from the outside. If there were any obvious flaws, he would not be able to enter Ghost City, let alone come here.
“Actually, one day ago, I received news from Sage of the Distinct Sea that Fourth Young Master and Seventh Young Master have both died.” The blood-faced scholar seemed to be very confident in formation.
At this moment, he talked to Jagoan for a while. “If I’m not wrong, both of them died in your hands…”
“Yes.” Jagoan nodded. “You mean, it’s not that you found out that I’m a fake, but that Sage of the Distinct Sea told you that both Mandra and Mac have died. So when you saw me, you knew that I was a fake.”
While speaking, Jagoan took half a step forward.
The silver light around him immediately reacted. In an instant, the silver light, like the sharpest blade in the world, cut off the light with a swoosh. It seemed that if Jagoan took a step further, he would be dismembered.
Seeing this, Jagoan stopped.
“Yes, just stand still. Otherwise, before the Sage of the Distinct Sea sees you, you will be chopped into pieces. It’s not easy for me to explain.” The blood-faced scholar said slowly.
He looked back and forth at Jagoan. At the same time, Jagoan also felt that the other party’s divine sense fell on him as if the other party wanted to see through his disguise.
After a while, Blood-faced Scholar clicked his tongue in wonder. “It seems that your disguise not only relies on your own magical power but also magic treasures that can help you change. Otherwise, it is impossible for you to be so perfect that even I can’t see it…”
“To be honest, if I hadn’t been reminded by the Sage of the Distinct Sea earlier, I would have been deceived by you today. In fact, after I knew that Mandra and Mac had died, I thought about how to take advantage of this matter if I killed them. So the conclusion is that I should pretend to be them, sneak into the Ghost City, and wait for an opportunity to move.”
Speaking of this, a hint of pride appeared in the eyes of the blood-faced scholar. “So you actually fell into my trap today, and I happened to meet you.”
“It seems that you are worthy of being the wise brain of Sage of the Distinct Sea. You are really thoughtful,” Jagoan said, “but I’m very curious. When I killed Mandra and Mac, I was sure that no one and Divine Sense could detect it. Then how did Sage of the Distinct Sea know that his two sons were dead?”
