Chapter 1228: The Incarnation of Body

“Alive, be man of men! Dead, be soul of souls? Heh, this is quite interesting!”
Beside the stone path, the dry corpse in the white robe opened his mouth with a smile. He fixed his hollow eyes on Xu Que. Meanwhile, his coarse voice could be heard at this time.
“But you can’t obtain the Mighty Body of Hades easily! Young man, don’t be too cocky… Forget it! I won’t stop you! When you come in and become one of us, you can always complain tearfully to me! Hah, hah, hah!” The dry corpse kept laughing. He had met a lot of overconfident cultivators like Xu Que who ended up miserably. At the end, all of them regretted what they did.
“You’ll know whether I am overly cocky later!” Xu Que said with a proud smile as he stepped out!
A powerful pressure gushed toward Xu Que immediately. Xu Que felt the pressure on his shoulders as heavy as a giant mountain, and it stopped him from moving forward. Even worse, this pressure hadn’t targeted him but was created in this area automatically.
“Hah, hah, so you begin to regret it now, right?” The dry corpse asked with a smile at this time. He didn’t want to gloat. Everyone who entered this place could be deemed a dead person! The dry corpse believed Xu Que would die sooner or later. So he was just trying to enjoy this show because it reminded him of what happened all those years ago!
“Bullsh*t!” Xu Que said angrily, and his expression became more serious. He realized he had underestimated this stone path. Now, he could not only feel the powerful pressure on his body, he even felt his blood was leaking out.
“System, activate the Automatic Recovery Function! This path is so creepy!” Xu Que asked the System to replenish the blood for his body.
He felt he was stuck in this cycle, just like a player in PUBG who kept losing blood in the poisonous ring. The System continued to replenish blood for him.
“Young man, this is a one-way trip! Now, you have got the feeling that your blood is running off, right? Actually, this is a path of body reincarnation. The deeper you walk on it, the more reincarnation of body you will have to endure!” The dry corpse said with a faint smile.
Xu Que was stunned by his reply. Then he realized something and said in surprise as he pointed at the other corpses beside the path, “Does it mean all of them died from the body reincarnation?”
“Exactly! That’s why I said this path is not dangerous! At the beginning, the reincarnation only happens in your blood, flesh, and skin. Then it will happen in your bones. At last, you will be turned into a heap of ash! Of course, your strength decides how far you can go! I fell at the end of the reincarnation of blood, flesh, and skin when I ran out of pills and elixirs!” The dry corpse exclaimed at this time. It seemed as if he missed those days when he walked on this path very much.
Xu Que fell silent when he saw those corpses in front of him. He thought those people had been dead for many years, and their corpses had decomposed because of weathering. He didn’t expect they just died in this way. At the beginning, the body would be dried up. Then the bones would be decomposed. At last, a cultivator would be turned to ashes, which would end his journey on this path.
“What about that step? Is it also a part of the reincarnation?” Xu Que asked.
“The step? Who knows! Anyway, I haven’t seen someone reach that step! However, according to my observations in these years, that step should be one part of the path of reincarnation. The speed of everybody’s body reincarnation is different. Some people who have excellent qualifications and strong physique could reach the end of this path and that step before becoming a heap of ashes! After all, this path was prepared by the God of Hell for his descendants, which is not suitable for us!” The dry corpse replied and his voice was full of loneliness and helplessness.
Xu Que frowned immediately, “Please don’t use the word us!”
“What? You mean this path is not suitable for me. But you can conquer it, right? OK! OK! I will just sit here and see how you will end up!” The dry corpse said with a smile. He didn’t believe Xu Que could go very far on that path. Maybe Xu Que’s performance would be even worse than his!
“OK, just watch carefully! And don’t die before I reach the end of this path!” Xu Que said with a smile. Then he stepped out for the second time! However, when he had just reached out his foot, he felt the pressure on his body was increased abruptly. Just now, the pressure was just like a giant mountain. Now, he felt as if ten mountains had been placed on his shoulders, which were so heavy that he almost fell on his knees.
“Holy sh*t…” Xu Que clenched his teeth. Then he landed his foot on the ground resolutely.
Instantly, the pressure, which had been magnified ten times, landed on his body completely. Now, Xu Que realized why some people could go far on this path and some people fell when they had just trod on this path. They didn’t want to stop but they were stopped by the overwhelming pressure.
In other words, if a cultivator tried to finish his journey on this path, his physique would be strong enough to withstand the reincarnation. At least, his body wouldn’t be turned to a heap of ashes before reaching the step. Then he also needed to keep moving forward under the ever-increasing pressure.
This is so difficult! Xu Que was surprised.
Luckily, he still had the assistance of the System’s Automatic Recovery Function. Although the recovery was quite slow, it was more efficient than pills and elixirs. Otherwise, he would have fallen before approaching that dry corpse.
“Hah, hah, hah, young man, work harder! Just do your best and walk to me, so that we won’t need to shout at each other when we want to chat in the future!” The dry corpse said with laughter at this time.
Xu Que shook his head and said nothing. Then he focused his attention and moved forward again. When he stepped out for the third time, he felt the pressure on his body was doubled again and was as heavy as dozens of mountains. Cold sweat started to appear on Xu Que’s forehead.
After stepping out for the fourth time, the pressure was even larger! Xu Que clenched his teeth tightly. Then, the fifth step, the sixth step, the seventh step…
At the tenth step, he felt the pressure on his body was as heavy as several hundred mountains! To cover such a short distance was even more difficult than to reach heaven!
Xu Que, whose body was covered by sweat, was panting heavily. Now the System’s Automatic Recovery Function was not able to replenish enough blood for his body. At this moment, Xu Que was halfway to that dry corpse. However, the further he went on this path, the faster he would lose his blood.
“Hey! Young man, you are quite impressive! Your body hasn’t been dried up yet!” The dry corpse said in surprise.
Xu Que only waved his hand for he was too weak to say something.
Every cultivator who entered this place had acquired the God of Hell’s Compulsion. So their physiques were quite tough! Xu Que’s physique, which had been toughened many times, was pretty strong. However, he knew his physique was not the strongest in this place. On his way, Xu Que figured out that what that dry corpse had said was correct—maybe he was not able to reach the end of the path and would also fall in front of that dry corpse.
After all, the pressure was becoming stronger and stronger. Even the System’s Automatic Recovery Function could not stop his blood from being dried up, and his body would be crushed by the pressure at last.
At the thought of this, Xu Que murmured to himself seriously, No! I need additional assistance from the System now! System, I want to buy equipment from the store!
