Chapter 1149: Take Things As They Come

“What?” Xu Que stared at them in utter disbelief.
What do they mean?
Your Act-Tough Saint spent so much effort throughout these few days to refine equipment. I finally figured out ways to refine a Fifth Grade Magic Weapon, and you’re telling me there’s no need for it now?
D*mn it! What do you mean you’ve found a real Fourth Grade Equipment Forging Grandmaster, are you implying I’m a fake?
All right, let’s say I am a fake, but you can’t compare me to a Fourth Grade Equipment Forging Grandmaster outside! I’m different from those vulgar and cheap cultivators out there!
“Miss Feng, wait a minute! I need to figure this matter out! From your words, you’re belittling my abilities, and you think others have a greater chance?” Xu Que raised his eyebrows as he spoke in an annoyed tone.
For so many years, others had been begging him to work for them, and when he was belittled, he would act tough and show them his true strength! He wanted to do the same this time round. He knew that Feng Lanwu and Xiao Ru didn’t believe that he could produce a Fifth Grade Magic Weapon, but according to his expectations, he would soon be able to overthrow their expectations and act tough to gain his Acting Tough Points!
But what a surprise! Feng Lanwu was too hard-hearted. She even took away his opportunity to act tough.
“Fellow cultivator, don’t be mistaken, you’re so young yet you can refine a Third Grade magic weapon. You’re a genius among geniuses. Such a qualification is unique in the whole of the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm, but…now I and the Wind Chamber of Commerce are facing difficulties and cannot take any form of risks. Although the Fourth Grade Equipment Forging Grandmaster isn’t a famous Grandmaster, he has rich experience. He has been researching Equipment Refining for many years and has a lower chance of committing error, so we’ve decided to ask him to help us!” Feng Lanwu hurriedly explained.
In fact, Xu Que’s creation of a Third Grade magic weapon had already shocked her, but, as she said, this matter was related to the future of the Wind Chamber of Commerce—it concerned their life and death. It was more advisable to choose a more reliable and experienced senior. It boiled down to experience, she was afraid that Xu Que was too young. If there was a mistake, they and the Wind Chamber of Commerce would be ruined.
“Mistakes? Do you mean that Equipment Refining can’t be allowed to make mistakes?” Xu Que couldn’t help frowning.
Although he had committed a lot of mistakes before, it was because those were his first few practices. In the later practices, he was already skilled in controlling the Mystical Fires and his Soul Strength, and he could ensure that his success rate reached 100 percent. As long as the Equipment Refining wasn’t beyond his grade, there wouldn’t be any mistakes.
But there were many factors contributing to his ability. As for other people, Xu Que didn’t believe that they could also achieve a 100 percent success. It must be a very normal phenomenon for Equipment Refining to fail in some stages.
“No, Equipment Refining involved too much crafting and processes, so mistakes will certainly exist, but this time the Wind Chamber of Commerce has to compete for several rankings in a competition, so we need an Equipment Forging Grandmaster to participate in the Equipment Refining Convention. The convention states that each participant is only allowed to make two mistakes and only three sets of material are provided. Once the number of mistakes exceeds two, it means elimination!” Feng Lanwu explicitly explained as she looked at Xu Que and smiled bitterly, “So…please forgive me, fellow cultivator. It’s not that we’re not confident about you, but taking into consideration various aspects, we opted for a sounder choice!”
“Uh…okay then!” Xu Que could only shrug his shoulders and give up. After all, they had already explained themselves thoroughly. Was it necessary for him to put in all his energy and seize every opportunity for a chance to show his true strength? As a dignified Act-Tough Saint, he wasn’t going to beg for a chance to help them. That wasn’t necessary!
“In that case, I’ll not disturb you! Although I still want to say that I’m confident that I can absolutely produce a Fifth Grade magic weapon, you all can still ignore my advice. So let’s forget it, good-bye!” At last, Xu Que said his good-byes and was ready to leave the flying boat. In fact, he knew very well that neither Xiao Ru nor Feng Lanwu thought highly of him; they didn’t care about his background and strength. Otherwise, they would have asked for his name and not addressed him as fellow cultivator till now!
Looking at Xu Que’s shadow in the distance, Feng Lanwu sighed lightly, “Uh, he may have some ill-feeling toward us. Xiao Ru, did I make the wrong choice?”
“Second Miss, you don’t have to blame yourself. Anyone who’s in your position would definitely choose the Fourth Grade Equipment Forging Grandmaster!” Xiao Ru comforted her as she felt that there was nothing wrong with it.
Feng Lanwu shook her head, “His talent is absolutely one in a million. Unfortunately, we can’t protect ourselves and our Wind Chamber of Commerce, let alone maintain a good relationship with him, forget it!”
“Heh, heh, Second Miss, if the Wind Chamber of Commerce can succeed this time and earn some treasures; we may be able to keep the Wind Chamber of Commerce going and return to our past glory. At that time,forget the Equipment Forging Grandmaster, maybe the Equipment Forging Great Grandmaster will take the initiative to contact us!” Xiao Ru laughed happily.
“No!” Feng Lanwu was startled as she immediately cautioned, “Xiao Ru, always remember, do not speak carelessly like that, even if our Wind Chamber of Commerce can return to its past glory, or even go beyond.It will always be impossible for us to surpass the status of those Equipment Forging Grandmasters and Equipment Forging Great Grandmasters. Their status is much more noble than you think!”
“All right, I understand!” Xiao Ru nodded.
“Uh, all right, let’s return to Baihui City and make some preparations. My father and elder sister should be reaching there soon. The Equipment Refining Convention is happening in two weeks. There must be no mistakes!” Feng Lanwu was deadly serious.
At the same time, Xu Que, who was far away from Feng Lanwu’s flying boat,stood in the wilderness, looking at a huge and magnificent ancient city not far away. Even though he was far away from the ancient city, Xu Que could still see the big words Baihui City written above the gate!
It was quite different from the place he had been before. Obviously, when he closed himself in the room to refine equipment, Feng Lanwu didn’t stop moving forward, but took him to that new place with her flying boat. At that moment, at the gate of Baihui City, there were numerous cultivators coming and going. Most of them were in the Half-Celestial Stage and Human Celestial Stage, not a single one was in the Earth Celestial Stage!
However, those cultivators in the Half-Celestial Stage and Human Celestial Stage, in all aspects of presence, were indeed a little stronger than those of the same rank of cultivators in Lost City. After all, the cultivators in the Earth Continent had perfect Rules of Heaven and Earth.
But to Xu Que’s surprise, there were occasional cultivators in the Form Synthesis Stage, the Crossing Calamity Stage, and even the Infant Transformation Stage, as well as humans passing through that city gate.
In the ordinary course of events, the Earth Continent was also a place where other cultivators landed after their rise to immortality. There should be no cultivators in the lower Cultivation Stage or the emergence of mortals. But when he thought about it carefully, whether it was a mortal or a cultivator, they were human after all. Every child born to a mortal was a mortal, and the children born by a cultivator would also be a mortal. They had to practice from scratch. Hence, it was normal that there were cultivators in the lower cultivation stages and even mortals in that place!
“Tut, tut, tut, I’ll take things as they come. I shall take a look around the city and think of a way to find out if there’s a Jade Lake in other Celestial Realms. If there isn’t, I’m afraid I will have to go to the Heaven Continent!” Xu Que spoke to himself in a low voice and walked towards Baihui City.
Feng Lanwu had told him that there was no Jade Lake in the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm, but there were five other Celestial Realms besides Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm in the Earth Continent. Xu Que wouldn’t rush over to the Heaven Continent without knowing whether Jade Lake belonged to the Earth Continent. Otherwise, he would waste more time traveling around.
“Huh? It seems that the city of the Earth Continent is similar to those of other places.” After entering Baihui City, Xu Que looked around with a smile and muttered to himself. Infrastructures in the Ancient City were of historical heritage, it was no different from those in the World of Cultivators. There were stalls, vendors, and various shops on the streets, bustling with noise and excitement.
Looking at all that in front of him, Xu Que couldn’t help but think of and miss The Four Great Continents in the World of Cultivators!
However, as he was a little distracted, a figure bumped into him gently.
“I’m…I’m sorry!” Then that figure hastily apologized and ran away.
“It’s okay!” Xu Que smiled lightly and responded. His eyes watched the figure fade away!
Just then, several young cultivators passed by and laughed at him when they saw the scene.
One of the women in red shook her head and shouted, “Silly boy, do you know you’ve lost something? The man was obviously a thief. How could you not see through his crude way of stealing? You’re even silly enough to say that it’s okay. Ha, ha!”
“Thief? Stealing? It doesn’t exist!” Xu Que said as he immediately weighed the unfamiliar Storage Ring in his hand. He smiled and said, “I, Bai Zhantang of the Exploding Heavens Faction, have never been a victim of petty theft!”
