Jared looked at Arthur gratefully and asked, “Mr. Sanders, would you now tell me how to improve Dragonslayer Sword?”
“Of course!” With that, Arthur turned toward Xavier. It seemed as though Xavier had already predicted the outcome because, in the next second, Xavier pulled out a map.
Arthur opened up the map and pointed at one spot. “Ancient ruins would be opening up in this place. By then, you would know how to improve Dragonslayer Sword.”
“Ice Bear Island?” Jared was shocked. “Isn’t that outside of Chanaea’s borders?”
Arthur nodded. “That’s right. This place is in Seneris, our neighboring country. There are plenty of Chanaeans there because it’s a trading territory.”
Puzzled, Jared glanced at Arthur and asked, “How did you know about another country’s resources, Mr. Sanders?”
“Haha! Warriors Alliance is aware of so many places with resources, so how could I, an official, not know? This isn’t the only reason, but that’s all you need to know.
However, do remember that once you’re out there, you’re on your own. Besides, I think a lot of incredible fighters are heading toward the ancient ruins,” Arthur reminded. “Thank you for your reminder, Mr. Sanders. I’l keep that in mind.” Jared nodded.
After leaving the Department of Justice, Jared went back to Deragon Sect to look for Flaxseed and Gilbert. After all, those two are very knowledgeable. I should ask them about Ice Bear Island.
“I don’t know anything about that. I seldom get involved in foreign matters. Flaxseed shook his head. On the other hand, Gilbert frowned and pondered over it before saying, “If I remember correctly, there was a huge sect called Engarder Sect on Ice Bear Island centuries ago.
Everyone in that sect was a swordsman. Besides, there were plenty of swordsmiths in Engarder Sect. Back then, a lot of good swordsmen went to Engarder Sect to challenge them, but all the challengers suffered significant losses.
However, for some reason, Engarder Sect vanished after that. According to rumors, a spiritual sword of Engarder Sect entered a frenzied state one night and killed all the people there. Of course, I don’t know if that’s a fact. It’s just a rumor.”
Upon hearing those words, Jared knew the ancient ruins were definitely related to Engarder Sect. Mr. Sanders told me about the ancient ruins because that’s where I can improve Dragonslayer Sword, and at the same time, Engarder Sect has something to do with spiritual swords!
“In two days’ time, I need you guys to come with me to Ice Bear Island. There are ancient ruins opening up on Ice Bear Island. I think those ancient ruins belonged to Engarder Sect!” Jared said to Flaxseed and Gilbert.
Gilbert didn’t object to the idea, but Flaxseed pursed his lips and said, “That’s a lousy place! I bet it’s freezing over there. The place is nothing. but trouble!”
“Mr. Flaxseed, you’re surely strong enough to endure the cold, aren’t you?” Gilbert asked in a puzzled tone. Jared knew Flaxseed didn’t want to travel far because he longed to return to Encanta Island, where pretty women would be at his service.
“Mr. Flaxseed, I heard that the women in Seneris have blue hair and green eyes. Besides, they’re all very passionate. Are those claims true?” Jared queried, pretending to be ignorant.
Flaxseed’s eyes lit up when he heard that. “Yes! That’s right! Also, they’re all tall. I’ll start packing. We’ll leave in two days’ time.”
Gilbert chuckled when he saw Flaxseed’s behavior. “Mr. Chance, it seems like you have Mr. Flaxseed in the palm of your hand.” After confirming the trip to Ice Bear Island, Jared proceeded to find out more about. Engarder Sect.
To his dismay, there wasn’t much information on Engarder Sect. After all, it was a foreign sect. Even if he wanted to know more about it, there simply wasn’t enough information available.
Suddenly, Jared received a call from Lizbeth a day before the trip. She asked him to make a trip to Crimson Palace. Jared thought something had happened, so he rushed there immediately.
