Fortunately, the pedestrians all hid far away from Tie Muzhen18Tie MuzhenEmperor Genghis, Genghis Khan19Genghis KhanEmperor Genghis, Tie Muzhen. Su Qiubai23Su QiubaiProtagonist, a taxi driver with a powerful and mysterious navigation system. Sometimes written as the old driver in this novel. was worried that if he had come any later, he would have to see the police again.
After much effort, coupled with the advice from Emperor Liuche21Emperor LiucheEmperor Wu of Han Dynasty22Emperor Wu of Han DynastyEmperor Liuche, Liu Che, Liu Che and Emperor Qianlong in the taxi, Tie Muzhen finally understood the situation.
It was impossible to stuff his longbow into the trunk due to its size, so Su Qiubai bought a rope from a nearby shop and tied the longbow to the top of the trunk. As a result, just after crossing a crossroad, a traffic police stopped him.
“What’s this thing?”
Frustrated, Su Qiubai came out from the car and unsurprisingly got a traffic ticket. The traffic police took a glance inside the car. Looking at the cold eyes of several emperors, he laughed.
“Are you guys going to film a movie? So many emperors?”
Without any mood to further explain himself, Su Qiubai laughed before entering the taxi.
Those historical people really occupied a lot of space in the taxi. Together with their robes, Su Qiubai’s taxi, which could usually sit four people at a time, was already packed with just those three people.
Su Qiubai had no choice but to call Cao Toufei and ask him to rent a house near Su Xiaoxiao31Su XiaoxiaoSu Qiubai's sister; also written as Xiao Xiao in this novel.’s school. He agreed to meet at a place, then he would send those emperors to the house first.
He initially wanted to book a hotel room, but there were a lot of people in a hotel. In case anything happened, it would be too inconvenient for him and those emperors.
Others might not think that they were real, but Su Qiubai was crystal clear… Every one of them was a real emperor, none of them was fake at all!
Therefore, it was better to rent a house. Since I’m not short of money right now. When I leave Donghai City, Xiao Xiao can also stay in that house.
Cao Toufei immediately agreed to help. He had no news of his boss since the night before, and now, he finally got a call from him.
After the two arrived at the meeting place, all the emperors followed Cao Toufei. Before leaving, Su Qiubai advised the three emperors not to talk too much because the world was a very dangerous place.
However, seeing that the three emperors were twitching their mouths, Su Qiubai knew his words were just garbage to them.
Su Qiubai also didn’t care much about it; he had to hurry to pick up the fifth person. So, after speaking a few more words with Cao Toufei, he drove straight to the last location. The place was relatively remote, so he assumed that the person couldn’t have wandered far.
Upon reaching the location, he spotted another man in a dragon pattern embroidered robe at first sight. But then Su Qiubai was dazed for quite some time before coming out the car.
The heck… What is this?
Isn’t it just one person? Why… Why are there so many people!
There wasn’t just a man in dragon pattern embroidered robe, but another three men in weird-looking armor!
At that moment, the four of them were also confused. They were clearly in the middle of a discussion earlier, how did they end up here, and what was that moving iron box… What are all these?!
Su Qiubai forced himself to walk over and greet them. After a long time, he finally figured out who they were.
Tang Taizong1 Tang TaizongLi Shimin16Li ShiminTang Taizong or Emperor Taizong or Emperor Taizong15Emperor TaizongLi Shimin or Tang Taizong… Li Shimin!
[TLN: Emperor Taizong of Tang Dynasty, personal name Li Shimin, was the second emperor of the Tang Dynasty of China.]
Next to him were the two door gods, Yuchi Jingde12Yuchi JingdeYuchi Gong and Qin Shubao13Qin ShubaoEmperor Taizong's general. And the last one was Cheng Yaojin14Cheng Yaojin Li Shimin/Tang Taizong/Emperor Taizong's general!
[TLN: Yuchi Gong11Yuchi GongYuchi Jingde, courtesy name Jingde, also known by his posthumous name Duke Zhongwu of E, was a Chinese general who lived in the early Tang Dynasty. Yuchi Jingde and another general Qin Shubao are worshipped as door gods in Chinese folk religion. Cheng Zhijie, courtesy name Yizhen, better known by his original name Cheng Yaojin, was a Chinese general who served under the emperors Gaozu, Taizong and Gaozong in the early Tang Dynasty.]
That was already the fourth emperor whom Su Qiubai had met today, but that emperor’s treatment wasn’t ordinary. He actually had powerful generals with him.
After giving Cao Toufei a call, asking him to come and pick them up, Su Qiubai began to explain what had happened to Emperor Taizong. By the time they finally understood him, Cao Toufei had arrived.
He was taken aback when he got out of his car and spotted the men in strange costumes next to Su Qiubai. Cold sweat rolled down his forehead. So, he quietly pulled Su Qiubai aside and eagerly asked about it.
“Boss, what are you doing? Where did you find this bunch of actors? What are you trying to film?”
The previous three had told him: One was Emperor Liuche. Another one was Emperor Qianlong and the last one was even more of a nonsense; wearing a Mongolian robe, he actually dared to say that he was Tie Muzhen!
Su Qiubai had initially felt fed up, but there were four more people now!
“I’ll tell you after I’m done. Is the house you rented big enough? Can all these people stay in there?”
Slightly upset, Su Qiubai replied Cao Toufei. He had just tried to open the space-time channel once again, but the result was exactly the same, suggesting that the energy was insufficient!
But as of that moment, he still didn’t know what the energy was!
Su Qiubai was relieved after Cao Toufei assured him that the house was big enough. Without further delay, the two cars left. But what he didn’t expect at all was that Cao Toufei actually rented a villa!
When he asked that kid how much the rental was, the kid actually held up his chin and said that it wasn’t expensive.
Su Qiubai didn’t have time to bother himself with the matter, so he led Emperor Taizong and his men into the villa. After entering the villa, Cao Toufei might not think much about the scene in the living room, but Su Qiubai felt that it was too outrageous.
Emperor Liuche, Emperor Qianlong and even Tie Muzhen were sitting on the same sofa watching a TV show. The TV was showing… a woman’s lingerie commercial!
The three of them seriously stared at the screen, not noticing the sounds of the others coming in. It was until they noticed Su Qiubai standing beside them, then only they took their eyes off the TV and stood up.
“Why are women so daring nowadays? It’s really insulting!”
“That’s right, it doesn’t look good at all!”
“Hey, my Mongolian ladies are better!”
The old driver hadn’t spoken but the three had already started complaining. Su Qiubai smacked his forehead and threw the matter aside.
“Let me introduce to you, this is Tang Taizong…”
Cao Toufei was still outside that time, so Su Qiubai quickly let them get to know each other first. Then, he told them that they had to listen to his instructions, or else, they wouldn’t be able to return.
It might be that the emperors had completely believed that they were indeed in the future world, so no one expressed any opposition. The only thing was the three emperors weren’t happy with Emperor Taizong.
Darn you, who are you to be qualified enough to bring your military generals, but we can’t?
Because of that, the emperors started quarreling and became noisier in the end. The house was almost torn down by the time Su Qiubai came out from the toilet.
Looking at the situation in the living room, especially the iron arrow nailed to the wall, then noticing Cheng Yaojin and Tie Muzhen rolling up their sleeves and getting ready to wrestle, Su Qiubai felt like fainting on the spot. That also made him more determined to find the energy as soon as possible. Even if he didn’t complete the test, it was necessary to send those people back as early as possible.
Cao Toufei originally thought that the group of people was quite fun, but after being thrown into the air twice in a row, he was finally scared.
These people aren’t actors at all, they are all crazy!
So, without hesitation, he followed Su Qiubai out of the villa. The two smoked a few cigarettes outside as they listened to the sounds inside the villa from the distance.
“Haha, come again! I’m having fun!”
“It feels like you and I have known each other all along!”
“I’ll tell you the truth, you’ll die quite badly when you’re old…”
“Don’t say it, it was terrible when you died too…”
“Boss… What the heck is this?”
Cao Toufei felt that his usual life was already lawless, but seeing those people, he just felt like a first-grade primary school student.
“I don’t know how to explain it to you. There’s still one that I haven’t found yet!”
Helplessly shaking his head, Su Qiubai was very annoyed. The last person is nowhere to be found, the task has to be completed in ten days and the energy needed to open the space-time channel still hasn’t been found yet…
Having that thought, he lit another cigarette.
He had received a system prompt earlier that if he couldn’t finish the task within the given time, he would be killed!
But I only have ten days… Can I really do it?
Remembering this, Su Qiubai suddenly regretted recklessly starting the driver’s license test earlier, but it was too late now.
At that moment, in a bar in Donghai City, a group of thugs surrounded four strange-looking men. The one who stood in the middle was actually wearing a black dragon pattern embroidered robe, and the three others beside him looked even more murderous.
“Brothers, let’s fight! Idiots, I still don’t believe that there’d be people in Donghai City who dare to talk to me like this!”
The head thug gave out an order, and the gang members dashed forward.
