Chapter 40 – Arrogant brazen thieves (1)
Su Zian did not know that Su Luo had already fled. At this moment, he was just about to enter the Hidden Treasure Pavilion.
However, when he saw the chains hanging on the door, his facial expression became very ugly.
This chain was made by the best craftsmen in the capital. It could only be opened by the key hanging on his body.
But right now, this lock had been opened by someone else. Moreover, it was hanging in an obviously mocking manner.
Su Zian’s expression now became abnormally stiff. He pushed opened the door and loudly shouted with anger: “Light the lamps!”
Very quickly, the guard at his side handed him a lantern. Soon after, he lit the candles in the room.
The first floor looked messy and was in disorder. It only took a glance to clearly see that someone had rummaged through it.
This thief was incomparably arrogant and brazen; he didn’t even bother to put stuff back in place!
He stepped onto the second floor.
It was obvious that the second floor had also been rummaged through but it didn’t seem as though anything was missing.
But if this was the case… Su Zian’s countenance became even more unsightly, because he knew that this thief must be an expert. If he was not impressed with the first and second floor, then his goal pointed to the third floor.
When Su Zian walked to the third floor and saw the situation in hall, his brain immediately buzzed with noise. A sweet taste entered his throat and a mouthful of blood had almost been spat out on the spot.
It only took him one glance to see the small black hole in the floorboard! It was the place where the Celestial Spirit Water was stored.
Aside from his ancestors, only he knew about this place, but now it had been opened by someone else!
Su Zian could only feel his limbs go numb, and he was almost unable to stand properly.
Steadying his mind, he boosted his spirits to look forward and discovered that the wooden box stored there disappeared without a trace.
So hateful, so aggravating!
Su Zian was so infuriated that he threw up a mouthful of blood on the spot.
The Celestial Spirit Water placed in that small box was the Su Manor’s most precious treasure!
But what angered him even more in addition to the Celestial Spirit Water, was the hidden treasure map. That hidden treasure map was actually the most precious thing!
It was a map to open the legendary Secluded Necropolis of the Gods. Even the most powerful experts on the continent were searching for it. Although it was only a fragment, if this hidden treasure map were to appear, then the entire country will be in chaos.
And now it had been stolen along with the Celestial Spirit Water.
Su Zian’s entire body trembled with fury and could not say anything for a while. He felt like he was going to go crazy.
“Search! We must find the thieves!” Hack them into pieces! Su Zian was so angry that he trembled from head to toe.
Suddenly, his eyes saw something in the black hole. After picking it up, he saw a purple fish jade pendant.
Could this purple fish jade pendant be left by the thieves?
What is this? Steal something and leave something as a calling card? What arrogant brazen thieves!
Su Zian believed that if this thief was standing in front of him right now, he would definitely strangle him to death.
Unfortunately, he did not know that the thief he hated until his teeth itched, was actually his good-for-nothing daughter who did not know any martial arts.
“Take this jade pendant to the Mercenary Union. Ask them to find all the information regarding this jade pendant as soon as possible!” Su Zian believed that if he found the origin of this jade pendant, then tonight’s thieves would not be able to hide.
He must find the thieves and let them see that Su Manor was not a place where they could come and go as they pleased!
But at this time, the guard’s manner seemed hesitant. It seemed as if he wanted to speak but stopped.
“Why haven’t you left yet!” Su Zian angrily roared.
“Great general, this jade pendant…. This, this humble servant has seen it before.” The guard hesitantly hummed and hawed.
“You’ve seen it before? Where have you seen it before?” Su Zian’s entire body was startled with excitement and inconceivably stared at the other party.
