Outside the ice coffin, there was a rich Spiritual Qi that was overflowing with brilliance and intertwining. Subsequently, a woman’s figure appeared. It was very vague, but unusually familiar. It was clearly the same as the woman lying in the ice coffin. Previously, she had condensed her body with the Water Element Spiritual Qi, and her appearance was unclear. But now she was directly shaped with Spiritual Qi, and she looked like a projection, slightly opaque, but distinct enough!
Her beautiful eyes glanced over to Xu Que. They were shining brightly as if she had a vast number of stars in them—dazzling yet deep!
“Explanation? What do you want to explain?” She looked at Xu Que with a faint smile. Her tone was slightly impish, as if she had seen through all of Xu Que’s tricks.
Xu Que was somewhat in a daze. He had seen the woman lying in the ice coffin through the lake on the top of the mountain before. Even if he hadn’t had a clear look, he still knew that she was a woman with a gorgeous face! When she lay in the ice coffin, the aura of elegance she was radiating was stronger than that of any woman. When compared with Jiang Hongyan, that woman’s elegance was so much above her. But, at the same time, she was too elegant. She would cause others to feel that she was an ethereal beauty, a little too cold and unfeeling so that nobody wanted to come close to her.
Xu Que had that same idea of not wanting to get close to her; he didn’t want to talk or flirt with her at all, but the situation was very embarrassing. This woman was too powerful, but he thought she could be crushed by his Sword Spirit. But when the Sword Spirit saw her, he ran back to the broken sword. No matter how Xu Que called out to him, he didn’t want to come out; he was feigning death!
“Why aren’t you talking? Aren’t you good at that? I would like to hear your explanation!” Just then, the woman spoke again, her voice was ethereal and tranquil. But her words, in Xu Que’s ears, were unusually cold and bleak; it was like frostbite on a chilling night!
Cough! Xu Que gave a dry cough and smiled, “Teacher, don’t get me wrong, I really didn’t mean that!”
“Oh? I heard that you want to hack me to death?” The faint smile on her face was growing stronger.
“No! That was a definite no!”
Xu Que immediately waved his hand and declared, “How could Xu Que possibly murder his teacher? In fact, that Sword Spirit was too arrogant. He said that he had been in the sword for a long time and was bored and lonely; he couldn’t find his opponent and he wanted to fight with you. To my surprise, he hadn’t even started and was frightened by your imposing presence. From that, we can see that you’re really an extraordinary person, you’re unrivalled, and extremely awesome!”
“Really?” With a faint smile, the woman pointed to Xu Que’s broken sword and said, “I know that Sword Spirit, but I can’t remember who it is. I have slept for too long these years and lost many memories. But I knew that he was extraordinary. Release him and let me take a good look!”
“Oh, it’s an old acquaintance, that’s good…” Xu Que’s eyes sparkled and wanted to force out his Sword Spirit.
Suddenly, the voice of his Sword Spirit rang in his mind, and he suddenly stopped his actions. Xu Que smiled embarrassingly, “Teacher, maybe let’s forget it. My Sword Spirit is out of touch with the world and shy. You can see it again after it is familiarized with the surroundings!”
The woman squinted and gently nodded, “Well, anyway, you’ll be staying here for a long time!”
“Teacher, in this case, we’ll not disturb your cultivation. I’ll go familiarize myself with this place, you don’t need to worry about me. I’ll make this place my home!” Xu Que smiled and was looking well-mannered.
“That’s good if you had such thoughts. Since you’ve come, stay and enjoy the time. If you stay here and cultivate, you’ll have great success in the future! Also, previously you said that you wanted a gift for becoming my disciple. There are countless Celestial Artifacts here. You can take any of them!” The woman smiled faintly, pointing to the heap of Celestial Artifacts stacked and scattered around the palace!
Previously, when he looked down from the hill, that pile of Celestial Artifacts was sparkling. But only now did Xu Que see clearly that it was a pile of broken Celestial Artifacts. Most of them had been destroyed and deformed; none was equivalent to an Inferior Celestial Artifact!
“There’s no need for that, Teacher. As I said before, I didn’t come here for the Celestial Artifacts!” Xu Que laughed.
The woman nodded, “You have that broken sword and Sword Spirit, it’s no wonder you look down on these Celestial Artifacts. All right, go and find a place to cultivate. In another ten years, when I attain Nirvana, I will leave this place with you!”
“Ten years? Isn’t it 100 years?” Xu Que was startled.
When the people in the three academies helped, the woman had at least 100 years before she was out. How could it be ten years now?
“This place was set up with a Time Shuttle. A year here is equivalent to ten years in the outside world. Moreover, the Spiritual Qi is abundant here. It’s an excellent place to cultivate, don’t miss it!” The woman responded calmly.
Xu Que’s eyes stared widely.
D*mn it. A year here is equivalent to ten years outside?
Oh gosh, this is bad. Should I get out? No, no, I have to think of a way to escape. Every second is precious!
Thinking of that, Xu Que couldn’t continue. He left the palace after bidding farewell to the woman in a hurry; he ran directly to the moat.
The woman watched Xu Que’s back, she smiled coldly and shook her head. Then her figure gradually blurred into a wisp of Spiritual Qi and plunged into the ice coffin!
At the same time, Xu Que had already run back to the place where he had previously fallen. Hs heart was full of fear! The message that the Sword Spirit had just now told him almost gave him a panic attack!
Right, the Sword Spirit! Xu Que immediately thought of it, reached for his broken sword, and shouted, “Sword Spirit, get out! D*mn it, I’ve always thought that you were good. Now, you were so unreliable that you abandoned your master and ran away! Also, what did you mean just now? Why is it that if I don’t leave now, my life will be over? Who on earth is that woman?”
“Humph!” Just then, the Sword Spirit sneered and, with the art of soundless communication, he said, “If I hadn’t returned in time and reminded you, you would have been turned into ashes!”
“Why though?” Xu Que asked.
“That woman is the inheritor of the Heavenly Book of Taiyi. No wonder I sensed a trace of familiarity. It’s self-destructive for you to provoke this woman!” The Sword Spirit snorted again and was seemingly angry.
Xu Que immediately frowned and said, “Can you stop beating around the bush? Explain clearly now!”
“There’s nothing to make clear. There’s something you can’t say. In short, you just need to know that woman is a frightening existence. What you need now is to find a way to leave; otherwise you’ll be turned into ashes in less than three years! Did you see the Celestial Artifacts in that palace just now? Those used to be top-grade Celestial Artifacts or even the best-grade Celestial Artifacts, but you can see how they were today!” Sword Spirit murmured.
Xu Que was astonished. “Those broken things used to be top-grade Celestial Artifacts and best-grade Celestial Artifacts? D*mn it, it doesn’t seem possible. Although the surfaces were incomparably brilliant, when I came close I realized they were junk!”
Speaking of that, Xu Que suddenly thought of something. He smiled and said, “Oh, is it because the woman wanted either Celestial Artifacts or Artifact Spirits? Ha, ha, you urged me to escape because you were worried for your own safety. Ha, ha! That’s interesting!”
The Sword Spirit suddenly sneered. “So many Celestial Artifacts were inside but have you ever thought about where their masters went? What do you think of the bright and shining broken Celestial Artifacts? Have you ever thought about what that shining dust was?”
