Chapter 1231: He Actually Made It!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The words from the dry corpse reminded Xu Que of the young sect leader from the Sage Sect in the Heaven Continent who had been mentioned by Buttface and the others. He was the so-called Divine Being of Taoist Fetus, honored as the Divine Son and the one who fantasized about being with Jiang Hongyan.
Now Xu Que wanted to inherit the Mighty Body of Hades, so that when he was able to reach the Heaven Continent, he would be able to beat up the Divine Son!
“Divine Being of Taoist Fetus? Ha, ha, are you kidding? How could that lousy physique be comparable to the Mighty Body of Hades?”
After the dry corpse heard what Xu Que wanted, he burst out laughing, “In the Battle of Deities in the past, there were at least ten with the physique of Divine Being of Taoist Fetus who were trashed by a single punch by the Mighty Body of Hades. With the exception of those with the physique of Pure Divine Being, the other physiques of any variants of Divine Being were a joke!”
“That’s just a joke?” Xu Que was startled. Previously, he had thought that the Mighty Body of Hades was an acquired ability that might be inferior to an innate ability. After all, they had been born with it, but his was only acquired. But amazingly, dry corpse informed him of something he didn’t know—the Mighty Body of Hades was stronger.
When he thought about it carefully, he realized that what was involved in the formation of the Mighty Body of Hades—the Golden Genuine Dragon, the Kylin with Inextinguishable True Fire, the Deity Ancient Tree, and other Divine Items of the Five Elements—all combined made something so strong that it would be strange if it wasn’t awesome!
“Ha, ha, good, this Mighty Body of Hades, Xu Que from the Exploding Heavens Faction wants it for sure!” Xu Que showed a crazy smile, his gaze full of determination, and he gathered his momentum and abruptly thrust forward.
In an instant, he took three steps on the stairway, each of which was powerful and resonated loudly. There were cracks on the steps upon every loud thud.
The cracks on the steps weren’t due to Xu Que’s strength, they burst apart easily. It seemed that as long as someone was walking on them, they would be destroyed.
But the consequences of Xu Que’s three steps were also extremely horrifying. His physical body was so dried up that it lost its human form. It was all skin and bones, and he looked no different than the dry corpse.
“Ha, ha, young man, good job, but you should take it easy! I hope that you can succeed and take away that d*mned Mighty Body of Hades. But now you’re looking like me!” The dry corpse laughed.
“Even if I’m mummified, I’m a corpse who is more handsome than you!” Xu Que roared as he stepped up again.
He took another three consecutive steps, bursting out with an amazing perseverance. He looked like he had gone mad.
His skin began to disappear. It turned into ashes and fell off, and various parts of his bones were exposed.
However, Xu Que didn’t stop, he continued to go up, the six pieces of equipment and the System’s automatic recovery ability played a role in slowing down the reincarnation of his physical body.
At the same time, the dry corpse looked at Xu Que’s figure and he was astounded.
He recalled the severe pain he had suffered when he lost his blood and Qi, and it made his blood freeze. He was reminded of other people who had gone through such reincarnation, and their heart-wrenching shrieks were still vivid in his mind.
Everyone who had ever taken that path had to stop and rest after taking a step to ease the severe agony of their bodies.
But now, this young man in the Medium Stage of the Human Celestial Stage had such shocking perseverance and endurance. He was so thin and was left with barely a skeleton. He looked extremely fragile, but he had infinite strength, and he was madly bursting forward on the stairway.
This kind of person who could be so harsh on himself must have dreadful existence!
“You deserve the inheritance of the Mighty Body of Hades!” The dry corpse muttered.
Then he continued to watch Xu Que. Xu Que had already gone over nearly two-thirds of the stairway, and there was no more skin and flesh on his body, he was only left with a skeleton.
“Uh!” Suddenly, the dry corpse was staring at the position of the Dantian within Xu Que’s skeleton. “What’s that little Green Lotus? How could he plant a Green Lotus in his own Dantian?”
He had no idea what the Green Lotus was. He had never heard of anyone who could grow and raise plants in their Dantian!
“Maybe he loves plants!” The dry corpse muttered.
At the same time, Xu Que felt that his body was almost drained and depleted. The disappearance of his flesh was lost in a reincarnation.
The suffering he was enduring reminded him of the myth about Ne Zha, the Third Prince, where he cut his own flesh to return to his mother. Now, Xu Que was about to face what Ne Zha had gone through—cut his bone and return it to his father. After experiencing all that, he might become simply a pile of remains!
With a clear and crisp sound, Xu Que found that his bones began to crack.
However, he didn’t stop moving and was still heading forward. As he went up the stairway, the cracks in his bones became wider and wider!
“Young man, why not just rest for a moment. I’m afraid you can’t get to the end in your current state!” Just then, the dry corpse below began to shout. He couldn’t stand it anymore.
Xu Que ignored him and continued to step forward. His response to the dry corpse was the sound of his heavy footsteps.
“Hey, don’t force yourself. If your bones turn into ashes, there’ll be no place for your soul to rest on, and you’ll die soon after! If you stop and rely on this skeleton frame, you can live a longer time!” The dry corpse reminded him because he couldn’t bear to watch Xu Que die just like that.
“I would rather die than live in such a place!” Xu Que responded. He was gritting his teeth and his voice was incomparably husky.
Now there were only five steps left, as long as he continued on, maybe everything would come to an end!
But now his skeleton was full of cracks from head to toe. It might turn into ashes at any time. Maybe he really couldn’t stick it to the end.
“If I want to have it, Heaven must have it for me! There are infinite ways to achieve the Dao. This is my Dao. I want the Mighty Body of Hades, and no one can stop me!” Xu Que roared forcefully, and his power erupted completely.
At this moment, his Taoist Connotation was protecting him. Between his brows was a brilliant golden radiance. The Little Gold Clone had set itself on fire and released a vast, terrifying Spiritual Qi. It suddenly enveloped Xu Que’s skeleton from top to bottom!
In an instant, Xu Que’s white skeleton was changed from gold to black, and his black skeleton was completely invaded and attacked by the terrifying Spiritual Qi!
Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam!
In an instant, Xu Que took another five steps in one smooth motion, and then he reached the summit at an incredible speed!
When he reached the summit, a muffled sound could be heard. His skeleton, which was wrapped in terrifying Spiritual Qi ,couldn’t endure the power of reincarnation. It exploded at the top of the stairway, turned into a mass of ashes, and lay there.
On top of the remains, there was a Little Gold Clone with a dim golden glow. There was also a seemingly ordinary little Green Lotus stuck onto it!
On the stone road below, the dry corpse stared at the scene and murmured, “This… was it a failure after all?” He sighed in desolation.
Suddenly, a deafening noise resonated across the space.
The dry corpse was shocked, and his eyes leapt to the top of the stairway.
Just then, the entire stairway had completely shattered—dissipated into the air. The top of the stairway was covered in a glistening brilliance.
Following which, the five stone chambers which were hidden behind the clouds began to shine in five colors: gold, red, green, blue, and brown!
The five colors of light beams that represented the five elements shot up to the sky. The air was filled with a strong and terrible presence of the Five Elements!
“Five elements combined into one, the Mighty Body is formed!” The dry corpse was in a daze as he mumbled. He was shocked and surprised. “This dude has unexpectedly succeeded!”
