Chapter 1089: People of Our Generation Should Be Fearless!

“Wang fellow, there’s something that I don’t know whether I should say, actually…”
“If you don’t know, then don’t. You promised to let me go after asking questions. Good-bye!”
Without waiting for Xu Que to finish his words, Wang Qiannian hurriedly interrupted, did a fist salute, and left. He was really afraid of attracting a troublemaker like Xu Que. Xu Que was only at the Half-Celestial Stage, and, if he was abandoned on that land, it would be very difficult for him to live!
If Xu Que was a person who understood how the world works and could accommodate to his circumstances, then he would recognize his own strength and abandon his old ideologies. He could then copulate with women in the street to earn enough Vital Rice so that he could quickly cultivate and be promoted to the Human Celestial Stage. It was only then that he could dig his own Vital Rice!
But when Wang Qiannian was talking just now, he scrutinized Xu Que’s expression and concluded that Xu Que would never copulate with a woman on the street. Was there a reason to stay on friendly terms with such a person? There wasn’t. People like Xu Que who held onto their morals, he had seen many like that and most of them died!
Hence, Xu Que, in Wang Qiannian’s perspective and most other people’s perspectives, was equivalent to having one leg inside the coffin. He was not worth talking to. And Xu Que was no longer glued onto him; his questions had been answered.
Although the area belonged to the World of Near Celestials, it was also an area where the Rules of Heaven and Earth were altered. Thus Xu Que wasn’t panicky. As long as he found a way to solve the problem of his life span, he could concentrate on finding the entrance to the other continents. Of course, in the meantime, he had to inquire about which continent Jade Lake was on in the World of Near Celestials!
After all, from what people said just now, Xu Que was the only one who had flown here. He was the first one over the years. He was certain that Jiang Hongyan and the others weren’t here, so he could only try going to Jade Lake. Worse case scenario, he could ask Bai Cailing for help to inquire about their news; it would be more efficient than searching blindly!
“Tsk, tsk, tsk. Vital Rice, oh Vital Rice, breeding ground, oh breeding ground. I’ll dig you out one by one!”
Xu Que looked toward the outskirts of the city and he began to laugh and talk to himself. Just as he thought, it wasn’t difficult to find the Vital Rice if he had the ability of a tomb-raider. After all, Vital Rice was a type of spiritual item that could increase vitality. Most of it had to grow in a location with good feng shui and with abundant Spiritual Qi. That was related to the topography! Moreover, when the Vital Ants built their nests, from their instincts, they would choose a fertile land. This was also related to the topography. Since everything had to do with the land, it was better to dig according to the principle of finding a tomb than digging anywhere with a bunch of people! Immediately, Xu Que strode away and headed toward the outskirts of the city.
From his experience of stargazing, the land to the east of the city was the most fertile. There were many locations with good feng shui. The Dragon Veins were strong, and it was absolutely the place where the Vital Rice was produced. Hence, most of the Vital Ant should be there too!
Meanwhile, some people in the public square were paying close attention to Xu Que. As they saw him heading east of the city, they couldn’t help but shake their heads.
“That dude was heading east, toward the outskirts of the city!”
“Ha, ha, that fellow thinks he is clever. I’m afraid he’ll end up in trouble!”
“That area is abundant with Spiritual Qi, which everyone knows! However, there’s a high possibility that every nest has its Queen Ant and every excavation could kill a massive number of people!”
“Come on, let alone the Queen Ant, he can’t even cope with those Vital Ants!”
“Wrong, wrong, all of you are overthinking. Don’t forget that this guy only has Cultivation in his Initial Half-Celestial Stage. Do you really think he can flip over the soil?”
Many joined the discussion with mockery and sarcasm in their words, but no one warned Xu Que. If it wasn’t my business, I would stay far away from it. That was the rule of thumb in the World of Cultivators!
Xu Que was the same. Although he couldn’t stand the behavior of those women on the street, he didn’t want to stop them. Everyone had their own choices. What if he stood up and criticized their behavior to stop them from doing that? What was the use of that? If they weren’t like that, could he help them extend their life spans? So if we couldn’t help each other solve difficulties, why stop them from doing what they do. Xu Que couldn’t engage in such hypocritical behavior. He couldn’t pretend to care about their lives, while in fact taking away the potential life spans of those trying to survive! And the most important thing at the moment was his survival. If he really couldn’t find the Vital Rice, he would be in grave danger!
After leaving the city, Xu Que quickly found his directions, and he stepped on lightning and bolted out of sight. With his judgment from the Dragon-hunting Formula, Xu Que concluded that there was a natural Dragon Vein thousands of miles away. The terrain was strong and the Spiritual Qi was compelling. It was absolutely the place where all kinds of natural resources and treasures were abundant. It was extremely possible that there were Vital Rice and nests of Vital Ants.
A moment after Xu Que left, a beautiful woman walked out of the city. She looked at Xu Que’s back. Her face was full of hesitation and confusion, as if she was contemplating. But soon, without any hesitation, she dashed forward! At the same time, Xu Que, who had just bolted more than 100 miles, realized that something was amiss. After leaving the city, in the eastern outskirts where it was surrounded by Spiritual Qi, there were almost no signs of anyone living; he couldn’t even find a shadow of a person. It was totally different from what he had imagined!
“Those people aren’t blind. They must know that this is the place with the most Spiritual Qi. Why aren’t they willing to come here?” Xu Que frowned and pondered for a while. He had no choice but to heighten his vigilance as he moved on. He had tried to increase his life span by using the Ancient Life and Death Wheel, but the increased life span added by the Ancient Life and Death Wheel was immediately emptied. It was sucked away by the invisible forces of this world. His life span was always restored to just one year!
That was to say that Xu Que’s last hope had died. He had only one way left. He had to find the Vital Rice. It was impossible for him to copulate with those women on the street, never! Even if initially he had a hardcore idea, but, out of the bottom line of his morality, that hardcore idea softened!
Uh, this mountain…hasn’t anyone dug here yet?
Finally, Xu Que arrived at a huge mountain and was somewhat surprised to see the Spiritual Qi surrounding the mountain range. It was full of vigor. If the mountain had no Vital Rice or nests of Vital Ants, he would be very surprised. But the question was: Why was it that nobody dared to dig in such an obvious place?
“Hey, I guess it’s because of their fear of the Queen Ant! Who cares if they’re equivalent to the Earth Celestial Stage? Nevertheless, they are just insects. There’s no way they could escape from the Ultimate Enhanced Version of the Exploding Heavens Faction’s Dichlorvos?”
Xu Que laughed, took a Luo Yang shovel, and stepped forward!
“Fellow cultivator, please stop! You shouldn’t climb up that mountain!” Suddenly, a woman’s clear voice sounded from behind. Xu Que was a little startled; he turned his head and saw a beautiful female cultivator dashing over in his direction. She was looking apprehensive.
Immediately, he smiled and did a fist salute, “Miss, what does that mean? Why can’t I go to this mountain?”
“There’s a Vital Ant’s Queen Ant there!” The woman answered instantly.
The smile on Xu Que’s face got stronger. Indeed, it was because of the Queen Ant that this mountain range which was so fertile was ignored by everyone! But that wasn’t a bad thing, otherwise, how could such a big mountain be left to him to explore now?
“Miss, everyone is a cultivator. I think people of my generation should be fearless. Who cares if it’s the Vital Ant or the Vital Ant’s Queen Ant? No matter how difficult it is, we should overcome it; in that way we can progress!” Xu Que made a powerful speech; he flung his sleeves back, and set off toward the mountains in a natural and unrestrained way.
“Wait a minute!” The woman’s face changed in an instant and she exclaimed, “Fellow cultivator, please stay put. I know of a safe place and want you to mine with me!”
