Accompanied by the roar of an engine, Buttface successfully launched the plane according to Xu Que’s instructions and disappeared. He fled the mountain with the disciples from the Utmost Happiness Faction and Duan Jiude. The next second after they left, a vast expanse of seawater fell from the sky—the terrible waves crashed down and the tip of the mountain crumbled with a deafening sound—the mountaintop was engulfed by layers upon layers of waves and the mountain came tumbling down!
When all was settled, the mountain was quiet and everyone had vanished, including those from the three academies and the millions of Holy Golden Armored Hornets. They all died under the terrible crashing of the waves!
Buttface, Duan Jiude, and the others took another look at the mountain. They were completely traumatized and fearful of the consequences if they didn’t escape in time. They didn’t want to suffer the same fate as those from the three academies.
“It’s so terrible. That woman kept quiet all the time. Who knew she was concealing her actual strength! She was so strong! We were all deceived by her!” Duan Jiude cried out in horror.
“That wasn’t the actual strength of the woman, but she was insanely provoked by Xu Que so she made use of the Heavenly Book of Taiyi. D*mn it, that woman was the successor of the Heavenly Book of Taiyi, it was really terrifying!” Buttface was seriously worried.
Liu Jingning was on pins and needles as she looked back at the top of the mountain and asked anxiously, “What exactly is the Heavenly Book of Taiyi? Is Xu Que dead or alive? How can we save him?”
“Don’t worry, since that dude was caught inside, he must be saved. At most, he was sealed down below with that woman.” Buttface waved his hands in a calm demeanor and murmured, “But the Heavenly Book of Taiyi isn’t that simple to handle. Your Holiness wasn’t aware of it previously, but when I saw the power just now, it awakened a part of my memory!”
“Oh, what did you remember?” Duan Jiude asked out of curiosity.
“Quite a lot of information about the Heavenly Book of Taiyi,” Buttface whispered. “It’s rumored that the Heavenly Book of Taiyi is an Item of the Heavens. Only the talent selected by the Heavens is qualified to inherit it. But nobody knows how powerful the item is. They only know the one who inherits the Heavenly Book of Taiyi is a choice of Heaven, whose status is second only to the Way of Heaven and above all living things!”
“D*mn it! It’s that awesome?” Duan Jiude screamed out in surprise.
“You’re right, it’s that awesome!” Buttface nodded.
“What’s the origin of that woman? What’s more, Xu Que was just casually mentioning that he wanted the Heavenly Book of Taiyi. Did that woman need to be so angry?” Duan Jiude frowned.
“Your Holiness doesn’t know of her origin, but she felt a little familiar, probably from my past lives. As for why the woman was angry, Your Holiness knows that very well!” When Buttface finished his words, a strange smile appeared on his face.
Duan Jiude immediately stared at him and said, “D*mn it, don’t keep us guessing! Why was she so angry?”
Buttface was proud of himself and he sneered. “Heh, heh, you know sh*t! Although the Heavenly Book of Taiyi only selected one person to inherit it, one person cannot bring into play its entire strength—there must be two!”
“That’s a useless question. Think about it, if the world ended with only one woman, even with the Heavenly Book of Taiyi, can she create a new life? So every inheritor of the Heavenly Book of Taiyi, whether male or female, eventually needs to find a cultivation companion. They had to overcome the tests of seven multiplied by seven, or you could say 49 Relationship Tribulations, to cultivate their mutual understanding, and eventually master the Heavenly Book of Taiyi together and banish all the rules!”
Buttface continued, “Anyway, since the Heavenly Book of Taiyi came into the world, no one has completely passed the 49 tests of Relationship Tribulations. In their tribulations, if one of them backs down, both will die together, and the Heavenly Book of Taiyi will then look for a new inheritor!”
“What if you don’t find a cultivation companion? Anyway, the Heavenly Book of Taiyi is so powerful that it’s good enough to have half its power!” Duan Jiude was befuddled.
Buttface immediately smiled disdainfully, “That’s what you think. If you use the Heavenly Book of Taiyi by yourself, you must pay a great price; such as losing Kismet or losing your life span. If someone who had completely lost his Kismet used the Heavenly Book of Taiyi, he would lose his life span and die immediately!”
“Oh gosh, then why was that woman so crazy just now? How could she use the Heavenly Book of Taiyi just like that?” Duan Jiude was startled.
Buttface was composed. “In that case, she only took a little risk to use the Heavenly Book of Taiyi. After all, the Heavenly Book of Taiyi is mystifying. If someone asks to inherit the Heavenly Book of Taiyi voluntarily, the inheritor of the Heavenly Book of Taiyi must convince herself with sufficient reasons before she could reject. If she couldn’t persuade herself before she rejected, she’ll be engulfed by the Heavenly Book of Taiyi!”
At the end of his explanation, Buttface shook his head. “Anyway, in Your Holiness’s memory, it seemed that nobody would take the initiative to inherit the Heavenly Book of Taiyi. Xu Que was silly, but he was lucky too. He first became a disciple of that woman and then he asked for the inheritance of the Heavenly Book of Taiyi. I believe that woman rejected the request using the excuse that the relationship between teacher and disciple couldn’t be swapped into a cultivation companion. Otherwise, that dude might be in greater danger now!”
“Oh gosh, why didn’t you say that earlier? That dude is still inside. He doesn’t know about this. What if he continues to ask the woman for the inheritance of the Heavenly Book of Taiyi?” Duan Jiude exclaimed with a startled expression.
“What can we do? Since ancient times, there were examples of teacher and disciple becoming cultivation companions. Although that relationship wasn’t recognized by the world, the Heavenly Book of Taiyi wouldn’t care about that. If the same excuse was used multiple times, the Heavenly Book of Taiyi wouldn’t accept that either!”
Buttface said angrily, “And Your Holiness wanted to tell all of you then, but who knew that the accident would happen so fast? Even if Your Holiness had informed you earlier, that dude wouldn’t have escaped his fate. I had to protect myself first. I would try to pass the news to him afterward! If we were to think carefully, if it wasn’t for Your Holiness, you would all be dead now!”
“That’s true, Teacher Buttface. You’ve made the right choice!” Duan Jiude patted Buttface on the shoulder.
The Elder, disciples, and the Sect Leader of the Utmost Happiness Faction, who were present, were at their sixes and sevens, and their eyes were filled with fear.
The story of the Heavenly Book of Taiyi told by Buttface sounded like a fantasy to them, but they had no choice but to believe it.
Liu Jingning was utterly shocked; it was totally beyond her expectations that the situation would be so serious. The Heavenly Book of Taiyi was such a great crisis that was unknown to many.
“No, we’ve got to go back now. We must tell Xu Que about this!” Liu Jingning said immediately.
“Don’t bother, it’s useless. Your Holiness has just explored it with my Soul Strength. The tomb was attacked by tremendous external forces and has been completely sealed. I’m afraid even that woman’s Soul Strength was trapped, let alone us!” Buttface shook his head and spoke in a serious tone, “What we could do now is to find a place to hide. Don’t forget that other Deathtraps had Immortal Cultivators from the three academies. And Your Holiness always felt that the tomb was familiar, so I had to take some time to think about it and come up with a solution to save Xu Que!”
“This…” Liu Jingning opened her mouth, but she didn’t know what to say.
Even Buttface was running out of ideas, what could she fathom?
“Remain calm! With Your Holiness’s understanding of that dude, he’ll probably be safe. That dude has all the solutions to any problems. Maybe he will be able to escape by himself when the time comes!” Buttface was very confident. He glanced at Liu Jingning’s Good Fortune Jade Disk by chance and said, “By the way, you’ve got to keep the Good Fortune Jade Disk well. Both Hong Yan, the Holy Senior, and Xu Que’s sister are cultivating in it. When they’re done with their cultivation, Your Holiness could earn the merits of protecting them and maybe I could earn the role of a Senior Minister in the future when we’re in the Xuanzhen Continent!”
“I take a share of the credit, old man!” Duan Jiude said immediately.
“Nonsense, what credit do you have!” Buttface rebutted.
“You’re nonsense. Old man, if I said there is, then there is!” Duan Jiude refuted him strongly.
A man and a dog started wrestling in the plane. Liu Jing stared at them, took a look at the Good Fortune Jade Disk in her hand, and finally looked at the valley that was getting farther and farther away behind her. After a long time, she sighed helplessly.
Meanwhile, at the top of a hill in the center region of the Celestial Burial Valley, Xu Que was dragged down by a strong pressure. He didn’t know how long it took him to land. Surrounded by a vast cave, with the Qi that was stronger than outside, Xu Que arrived. At the end of the cave, a lonely palace was right smack in the middle. From the open gate of the palace, Xu Que could clearly see the huge dragon throne and the ice coffin on the dragon throne, including the beautiful woman still lying inside!
“D*mn it!” Xu Que instantly flared up. He rolled up his sleeves and rushed forward with annoyance written on his face. “You madwoman, how dare you capture the Act-Tough Saint! If I don’t destroy your tomb today, I’m not Hu Bayi from the Exploding Heavens Faction!”
“Appear, Sixteen Secrets of Yin Yang!”
“The Act-Tough Saint is going to charge right through and into the enemy’s den today; seven ins and seven outs!”
