A Five-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone? Holy crap!
Xu Que was shocked. Bai Cailing used to mention that the Three-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone was generated from powerhouses from the Golden Celestial Realm.
Someone who generates a Five-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone is two levels higher than the Golden Celestials! How powerful could this guy be?
Instantly, Xu Que dashed to the place where Buttface had found the Spiritual Tao Stones. Then he started to check out the place carefully. A pile of bones was on the ground. Several Spiritual Tao Stones were buried in it. It seemed as if the Spiritual Tao Stones had been generated by a powerhouse, then buried under the bones. Therefore, the Taoist Connotation in these stones had been covered and hadn’t been sensed by others until now. However, after being sensed by Buttface’s sensitive nose, they dug out the stones from the bones.
Among them were two One-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stones and three Two-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stones. Only one Five-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone was found, which was giving off an intense Taoist Connotation.
Xu Que was confused immediately. Theoretically, one cultivator could only generate one Spiritual Tao Stone in his or her life. How could these Spiritual Tao Stones have been generated at the same time? Several possible explanations were that a cultivator had collected several Spiritual Tao Stones before his death or several cultivators had generated Spiritual Tao Stones together before their deaths at the same time.
However, these two possible reasons seemed quite impossible. If a cultivator had collected some Spiritual Tao Stones before death, why didn’t he use the Spiritual Tao Stones to elongate life? It was more bizarre to think that several cultivators had generated Spiritual Tao Stones together before their deaths. Their cultivation stage varied a lot. How could they die together? How could they make an agreement to generate Spiritual Tao Stones together?
“Little brat, don’t say I am mean! I will only take one Spiritual Tao Stone among all these six Spiritual Tao Stones! You can have the rest of them!” Buttface said as he tried to grab the Five-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone.
“Wait! Don’t move!” Xu Que shouted seriously.
“Ah?” Buttface withdrew his paw and said in surprise, “What’s wrong? Is it dangerous?”
“Yes!” Xu Que nodded, as cold sweat appeared on his forehead. Then he said seriously, “Just leave it there. It is dangerous!”
“Holy crap! I knew I wouldn’t be able to get a pie in the sky so easily!” Buttface cursed immediately. Then he stepped back as he exclaimed his bad luck.
Xu Que reached out his hand and made a fist in the air.
The six Spiritual Tao Stones were sucked into his palm instantly and nothing dangerous happened at all.
Buttface was dumbfounded. After being stunned for a while, he yelled, “Holy crap! Little brat, how dare you fool me? Where is the danger? Where is the danger?”
“The danger is with me now!” Xu Que said justifiably. “This is a Five-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone that could attract numerous powerhouses! Anyone who takes it will be endangered! Buttface, I did this for your own good! Don’t think badly of a kind-hearted man like me! I am taking a risk for you!”
“Crap! I am not afraid of danger! Give me my Spiritual Tao Stone!” Buttface rushed up and tried to get back the Spiritual Tao Stone by laying siege to Xu Que.
“Stop that!” Xu Que pushed Buttface away.
“Give me my Spiritual Tao Stone first!” Buttface said.
“OK, OK! Here you are!” Xu Que said as he took out a One-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone and threw it at him.
Howl! Buttface rushed toward the Spiritual Tao Stone immediately.
Xu Que smiled. Then he turned to Jiang Hongyan and said, “Little girl, do you still have the Spell-Mending Stone? This part of the incomplete spell Array is yours. I am in charge of the other place!”
“OK!” Jiang Hongyan nodded her head with a smile.
Then the two of them went to the vacant land and started their repair work. The spell formation of the Teleportation Device was large and complicated. It would be quite difficult for an ordinary cultivator to repair it. Otherwise, the powerhouse who generated a Five-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone wouldn’t have died here. Even Xu Que only knew a little bit about repairing the easy part of the spell formation. Therefore, he asked Jiang Hongyan to repair the spell formation with a Spell-Mending Stone. The most difficult part would be handled by the System!
“System, how many Acting Tough Points do I need to repair this spell Array?” Xu Que asked the System.
Ding! “Through inspection, 50,000 Acting Tough Points are needed to repair this Array. Proceed with repair?”
A strand of white light gushed out from Xu Que’s hand and started to repair the Array by following the spell formation on the ground.
Howl! “Little brat, I’m back!” At this time, Buttface came back furtively with an obvious guilty look.
Xu Que raised his eyebrows immediately.
Something is definitely wrong! This is absolutely not Buttface’s style. I fooled Buttface with a One-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone. But Buttface said nothing after his return! This is so out of character it makes me worried!
“Wait! Buttface, what are you hiding?” Xu Feifei asked suddenly, for she saw Buttface was doing something behind his back from where she was sitting.
Buttface’s expression changed immediately. He said loudly, “Nothing! I just put away the Spiritual Tao Stone I just found!”
“No, what you had in your paw was definitely a sheet of skin!” Xu Feifei said.
“Skin? Are you kidding? I don’t have any skin! You are mistaken. How could a young girl like you have such dim eyesight?” Buttface exclaimed as he sighed.
Xu Que lifted Buttface up in the air and said with a cold smile, “Buttface, you need a good smack, right? I didn’t expect you’d acquired the skill of eating alone!”
“Little brat, you also did that! Why did you take the Five-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone I found?” Buttface was annoyed immediately.
“OK, I will give the Five-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone back to you and you give me the thing you’ve just found, OK?” Xu Que asked with a smile.
“No!” Buttface shook his head hurriedly.
“No, I don’t want it anymore! I’ve thought it out. You have been taking care of me all these years. I will give that Five-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone to you as a gift!” Buttface replied.
Xu Que’s eyes got wide immediately. Holy crap! It seems the thing he found is more precious than the Five-Stripe Spiritual Tao Stone!
“Forget it! Since you found it, I will leave it to you. But… could I have a look at it?” Xu Que asked.
“Of course!” Buttface nodded his head, and he took out a piece of Smelly Tofu. Then he said mysteriously, “Little brat, look, this place also has Smelly Tofu! And I managed to find one! Isn’t it miraculous?”
Xu Que slapped Buttface’s forehead. “Nonsense! Do you think I am a fool? Don’t try to fool me with a piece of Smelly Tofu! Just show me the skin you’ve just found, maybe it will help us leave this place!”
“Holy crap! Do you think I am a fool? If I show it to you, will I get it back?” Buttface asked.
“It seems you really know this trick! OK, forget it! I don’t want to leave this place. And I will chat with that Warden. So, don’t wait for me tonight!” After saying that, Xu Que turned around and pretended to leave immediately.
Buttface shouted immediately, “No, little brat, this is negotiable! It is just a skin! I will show it to you!” Then, he moved his paw to take out a piece of yellow skin from his stomach. It was a section of blackened ancient human skin!
“What?” Xu Que was shocked. The human skin was full of small characters. It seemed like a magic art or a method of refining something.
“I found it beside those bones. Little brat, just look at it and don’t try to keep it! This is really something miraculous!” Buttface said vigilantly as he didn’t believe Xu Que. Then he handed the human skin to Xu Que unwillingly.
“Don’t worry! I won’t do that! I am not that kind of person!” Xu Que nodded his head sincerely as he received the human skin from Buttface.
When he looked at the human skin carefully, his expression changed and his heart was full of terror and shock.
What a startling discovery! The content of this human skin is related to the Spiritual Tao Stone, which is extremely extraordinary! Unsurprisingly, it is a new path for me to reach the peak of my life in the future!
