Chapter 1051: How Could Be Such A Weirdo?
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
In the valley at the entrance of the Mystery Land in the South Continent, all the members of the Exploding Heavens Faction were working together to build a stronghold with all kinds of magic arts. A magnificent building was being built up rapidly.
Xu Que didn’t want to waste his time in supervising their work. He just stood there and watched. What he needed was just a stronghold. He didn’t care what the building would look like. Anyway, it would just be a temporary foothold.
“Little brat!” Jiang Hongyan’s voice called out at this time.
Xu Que turned around and said with a proud smile, “Little girl, how was my performance just now? Was it awesome?”
“You were flaunting yourself as usual!” Jiang Hongyan said with a smile. Then she stopped smiling and reminded him in a low voice, “Just now those people said powerhouses of the Human Celestial Realm were also here. You should be more cautious!”
She knew Xu Que could defeat cultivators of the Half Celestial Realm now because he had the Firestorm Wheels and the lethal attack of the Sword Spirit! With these two Celestial Artifacts, Xu Que managed to take the initiative by killing the most powerful cultivator among seven cultivators of the Half Celestial Realm before they had time to organize defenses. Then he killed another cultivator when they fell into disorder.
If these cultivators had taken Xu Que seriously at the very beginning, Xu Que would now be surrounded by them. No matter how fast he was, he would still be driven into a limited area when he was attacked by seven cultivators of the Half Celestial Realm at the same time. In that case, he would never have won in such an easy way.
After all, Xu Que was just at the Crossing Calamity Stage. The gap of cultivation stages couldn’t be filled up by Celestial Artifacts easily. Therefore, she worried that Xu Que would face great danger when he fought against a cultivator of the Human Celestial Realm. Cultivators of the Human Celestial Realm were much more powerful than cultivators of the Half Celestial Realm.
“I got you! Actually, this was just a start which I used as warm-up. Also, I took this opportunity to know their strength as well as my strength! Know yourself and know your enemy, you will win every battle!” Xu Que said, nodding his head with a smile.
Actually, he had learned the actual strength of powerhouses of the Half Celestial Realm through this combat. As expected, they were much stronger than the powerhouses whose strength was suppressed in the Refined Moon Palace.
Moreover, Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan had the same idea. If those seven powerhouses of the Half Celestial Realm hadn’t underestimated him, he would have been defeated and had to escape together with his team and the rest of the members of the Exploding Heavens Faction now. However, Xu Que wouldn’t escape from those Celestials in the Four Great Continents even in this way. The large gap of cultivation stage and strength would never scare him away.
He was used to confronting his powerful enemies in extremely adverse situations. As long as there was a strand of hope of winning, the winner at the end would always be those who were good at scheming!
“What you said is correct! I also realized something through this combat. I need to perform secluded cultivation now. After that, I will be able to defeat cultivators of the Half Celestial Realm!” Jiang Hongyan said, nodding her head thoughtfully. She knew she was not powerful enough to help Xu Que now. Therefore, she was anxious to enhance her strength to reduce Xu Que’s risks.
“Defeat cultivators of the Half Celestial Realm?” Xu Que was surprised.
Jiang Hongyan had realized remarkable progress in cultivation. Now, she had reached Level 3 of the Great Vehicle Stage, which was not far away from the summit of this stage. After all, she was a genius. Together with her Body of Kismet and diligent cultivation, her cultivation stage was always higher than that of Xu Que.
Now, she said she could defeat cultivators of the Half Celestial Realm after performing secluded cultivation, which really surprised Xu Que. Apparently, Jiang Hongyan was going to reach a new level through this secluded cultivation, which meant he would reach Level 4 of the Great Vehicle Stage at that time.
Could a cultivator at Level 4 of the Great Vehicle Stage defeat cultivators of the Half Celestial Realm?
Awesome, my Hongyan!
“Little girl, just focus on your secluded cultivation. I will take care of Feifei!” Xu Que said with a smile.
He knew clearly that Jiang Hongyan was as powerful as he was since she had reached the Void Training Stage. Therefore, when she said she would be able to defeat cultivators of the Half Celestial Realm when she reached Level 4 of the Great Vehicle Stage, Xu Que had no excuse to doubt her.
“Feifei could perform cultivation together with me! My Good Fortune Jade Disk could strengthen her physique and improve the quality of her Spiritual Root!” Jiang Hongyan replied with a smile.
Hearing that, Xu Que realized Xu Feifei could start her cultivation since they had arrived at the Four Great Continents. Although the Four Great Continents were not safe, Xu Feifei’s security could be ensured if she stayed with Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan.
After a short hesitation, Xu Que said, “You need to find a safe place to perform your secluded cultivation. Otherwise, if cultivators of the Human Celestial Realm arrive….”
“Don’t worry! I found a safe place on our way back to the Four Great Continents.” Jiang Hongyan said with a smile, as she waved her slim hand to take out that Good Fortune Jade Disk. Then she continued to say, “On our way back, I found my Soul could go into that disk! I found a Small World in it which is full of intense Spiritual Qi. It seems the Soul from Mount Kunlun has benefited a lot from her cultivation in it!”
“A Small World in the Good Fortune Jade Disk?” Xu Que was surprised immediately.
Xu Que remembered the Soul of Mount Kunlun mentioned by Jiang Hongyan. It was the woman they met at Mount Kunlun. She said she was the incomplete Soul of the Master of Kunlun. She decided to follow Jiang Hongyan and performed cultivation in Jiang Hongyan’s Good Fortune Jade Disk.
“Right!” Jiang Hongyan nodded her head slightly. “I guess this Soul interacted with the Good Fortune Jade Disk and opened this Small World by breaking some restrictions. It seems she is really related to the Good Fortune Jade Disk!”
“What? Are…you sure you can control her?” Xu Que asked hurriedly.
If that Soul was really the Master of Kunlun or the Queen Mother of the West or even the master of the Good Fortune Jade Disk, Jiang Hongyan could be endangered.
Jiang Hongyan replied with a faint smile, “Don’t worry! That Small World is under my control!”
Xu Que nodded his head. Since Jiang Hongyan said so, it meant she was quite sure about that!
Also, Jiang Hongyan knew more about cultivation knowledge than Xu Que. So, compared to Xu Que, Jiang Hongyan would be a better teacher for Xu Feifei in cultivation. Finally, Jiang Hongyan and Xu Feifei entered the Small World in the Good Fortune Jade Disk. The Good Fortune Jade Disk was kept by Xu Que.
This Celestial Artifact had accepted Jiang Hongyan as its master. Xu Que was not able to put it in his System package or storage ring. He had to take it with him. He placed some small restrictive spells around the disk to avoid any possible damage to it during combat. Xu Que thought it was an unnecessary move. If he was not able to destroy that jade disk, how could it be damaged during combat?
At the thought of this, Xu Que murmured, “Just focus on your cultivation! I will bring peace and tranquility to the Four Great Continents in this period!”
After saying that, Xu Que walked toward the newly built stronghold.
The entire stronghold was high but not very majestic. However, it was still more spacious than most hotels in the Ancient Cities. Dozens of members of the Exploding Heavens Faction were standing below a plaque which was hanging on the main entrance. It seemed they were waiting for Xu Que to inscribe it.
Without any consideration, Xu Que started to write by injecting his Taoist Connotation into two fingers.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Several strands of light flashed out instantly. Then a line of words appeared on the plaque—The South Continent Branch of the Exploding Heavens Faction!
That day, more members of the Exploding Heavens Faction joined them. Now they had around 40 people in this area. Xu Que placed a rocking chair at the gate of the branch and started to sit in it and enjoy the sunshine.
Buttface hadn’t come back. It seemed he was quite afraid of the Sword Spirit. But Xu Que sensed something was wrong. Buttface shouldn’t be so cowardly. According to his knowledge of Buttface, Buttface should be attracted by something precious.
“Faction Leader!” At this time, screams could be heard from outside.
Xu Que looked up and saw a group of more than ten people who were coming here to join them. However, these people looked like they were messed up. Some of them were even seriously wounded.
“Treat your wounds first!” Xu Que threw out some treatment pills to those people.
“Thank you, Faction Leader!” They received the pills with great joy. Then they sat down on the ground and start to heal their wounds.
The people who weren’t wounded came up to Xu Que and said, “Faction Leader, we came from the edge of the East Continent. On the way, we heard much news. People of the Bai Family of the East Continent are coming toward this place together with several Celestials!”
“It’s OK! I’ll kill them all!” Xu Que waved his hand calmly. He didn’t have time to think about those who were seeking death in this place. He started to prepare a plan to kill those powerhouses of the Human Celestial Realm infallibly.
If he showed the white feather first, he had a great chance to kill those cultivators of the Half Celestial Realm. However, he would still be in great danger if he had to deal with too many cultivators of the Half Celestial Realm at the same time. Moreover, if he encountered cultivators of the Human Celestial Realm, he would have a narrow escape.
The Firestorm Wheels and the broken sword were his two ace cards. He needed a good plan of winning in an adverse situation with these two ace cards.
“By the way, Faction Leader, we saw Vice Faction Leader Buttface on our way. He was running excitedly toward a place!” A faction member said at this time.
Hearing that, Xu Que raised his eyebrows, “Did he mention his destination?”
“Yes, we greeted him, and he said he is going to find someone in the Celestial Burial Valley, so that he could also become a Celestial. Then he will come back…to…usurp power!” A faction member said in an embarrassed manner.
Basically, everyone knew Buttface’s hobby of boasting. Therefore, nobody took his words seriously, even when he said he would usurp power.
“Heh! I didn’t expect that he would go to the Celestial Burial Valley! It seems there is a big opportunity there!” Xu Que was interested immediately. Buttface went to the Road of Heavenly Ascension from the Celestial Burial Valley. Now, he went back to that place when they had just arrived. Maybe something precious was hidden in it.
Hearing that, the faction members replied with shock, “Faction Leader, didn’t you know the thing happened there? A big tomb appeared in the Celestial Burial Valley. In that tomb, a dead woman was found. It is said that she was the owner of the Celestial Burial Valley! Although those Celestials are scattered in the Nine Deathtraps, most of them have arrived at the Celestial Burial Valley. It seems they are going to open that tomb!”
“What?” Hearing that, Xu Que stood up from the rocking chair abruptly.
A big tomb in the Celestial Burial Valley? A dead woman? Owner of the Celestial Burial Valley?
Why do these things sound so creepy?
It seems the Celestial Burial Valley is really a mysterious place. He didn’t expect a tomb in it could attract those cultivators at the Human Celestial Realm.
“Wait! This is not correct! Just now you said Buttface is going to find someone in the Celestial Burial Valley so that he could also become a Celestial, right?” At the thought of this, Xu Que’s eyes widened, and he couldn’t help but gasp!
How could Buttface be such a weirdo? He fell in love with the Warden with the girlish voice! I didn’t expect that he even has a passion for dead women!
