Chapter 1245: Robbery

Is the Heaven Continent going to change? If the Earth Continent fails to board the big ship of the Heaven Continent….Wait! Is the Heaven Continent a big ship? Xu Que picked out some keywords from Zhang Sui’s words. Then he opened his eyes. Maybe the Heaven Continent was not a big ship—this was just a metaphor meaning, for example, when someone who was about to be successful, they would become a big ship for those who wanted to hang on to their coat tails.
Soon, before Xu Que and Mo Junchen had time to ask more questions, Zhang Sui continued, “About 600 years ago, I received a message. An old man on the Heaven Continent had discovered that it was possible to make progress by observing the stars at night. So he left the continent with several powerhouses. However, when they returned after 100 years, they hadn’t made any progress in their Cultivation Stages. In fact, their Cultivation Stages were even lower than before they left. Someone said they were seriously wounded!”
“Did they find a way to rise from the Heaven Continent?” Mo Junchen frowned, as his hands started to tremble excitedly. Xu Que kept silent. From Zhang Sui’s words, he figured out that the strongest powerhouses from the Heaven Continent had found a place that was even more powerful than the Heaven Continent. Then they left for that place, but were wounded there. Admitting defeat, they returned to the Heaven Continent 100 years later.
“Right!” Zhang Sui nodded his head and continued, “I got this message from the fourth generation sect leader who also participated in that expedition!”
“What? The fourth generation leader contacted us? But his Tao…” Mo Junchen couldn’t help but shout loudly. Apparently, he was totally shocked.
Zhang Sui said with a wry smile, “I was also quite curious because the fourth generation leader is cultivating the Tao of Ruthlessness. He has to break off all relations with the Earth Continent and resolve his karma. Now, he has chosen to build karma with us by sending this message, which could bring flaws to his Tao!”
“According to his character,that is almost impossible…” Mo Junchen said. People who cultivated the Tao of Ruthlessness were always selfish. They would break off all relations by getting rid of all karma related to them and even killing those closest to them. How could he bring flaws to his Tao by seeking an opportunity for the Equipment Refining Sect that he used to belong to?
“No, grandpa, you are wrong! He did that for himself!” A strand of coldness appeared in Zhang Sui’s eyes. Then he said seriously, “He didn’t tell me anything about that place outside the Heaven Continent. He just told me the Heaven Continent is about to become sublime. If we can control the Earth Continent and bring it back to the Heaven Continent, we will also benefit from what happens to the Heaven Continent! After that, he also told me the reason why he told me this message. He plans to kill some of us after we benefit from this opportunity, so that he could reach a higher realm. However, he agreed he won’t kill our descendants, whose lives will be much better than living in the Earth Continent as it is now!”
“It is a transaction!” Xu Que said with a smile at this time. Zhang Sui nodded his head, “Right! It is a transaction! We could choose to be abandoned forever. Or we could choose to bring the Earth Continent back to the Heaven Continent. Then the sect leader and I will become his sacrifice to help him in reaching a higher realm. Meanwhile, our descendants will realize further progress in the future!”
“Is that really necessary?” Xu Que shook his head. Although cultivators could only reach the summit of the Golden Celestial Stage on the Earth Continent, it was an unreachable goal for most people. Even if Zhang Sui could reach that realm in his lifetime, he couldn’t ensure that his descendants could also reach that realm. So, why did he choose to sacrifice himself for his descendants?
“It is necessary!” Zhang Sui replied solemnly. “We can reach the summit of the Golden Celestial Stage in the Heaven Continent easily. And we will be more powerful there. However, this is not the reason for the sect leader and me to make this decision. The real reason is that the Earth Continent is about to be abandoned!” Xu Que, who figured out that this might be the key factor, asked, “How could that be?”
“The Earth Continent and the Xuanhuang Continent will be deserted and might even turn out worse than the Lost City. The Rules of Heaven and Earth will disappear slowly. No cultivators on these two continents would be able to leave!” Zhang Sui said and he clenched his fists. It seemed he couldn’t accept this result and was determined to fight against it. This was understandable. He had reached the Golden Celestial Stage and become one of the most powerful cultivators in the vast Earth Continent. Now, he found he couldn’t control his fate, which was quite pathetic!
“The Heaven and Earth are unkind. They treat the creation like sacrificial straw dogs!” Mo Junchen sighed as he shook his head.
“Wait! If this is true, why do you try to control those sects instead of delivering this message to them?” Xu Que asked, for what the Equipment Refining Sect was doing seemed an unnecessary move.
“Because…it is also related to a big opportunity!” Zhang Sui said, as he smiled with embarrassment. He continued as he looked at Xu Que sorrowfully, “Once we control most sects and bring the Earth Continent back to the Heaven Continent, we will get the most Kismet. Even though we will still be killed by him, the Kismet will belong to our descendants!”
“Is it really so mystical?” Xu Que asked suspiciously. Why could they get more Kismet by controlling those sects? Was it really predestined?
“Isn’t it quite normal?” Zhang Sui looked at Xu Que with puzzlement as if he didn’t believe Xu Que could question that. Even Mo Junchen looked at Xu Que in surprise. After all, Kismet was always built on karma. And Kismet could only be taken away through karma. However, it was totally inconceivable for Xu Que, who previously had only upgraded through killing people. His total cultivation time was just several decades! Compared to Zhang Sui and Mo Junchen, who had lived for tens of thousands of years, Xu Que was just a newbie, or even an outsider in cultivation.
“Hey! Don’t look at me like that. I haven’t encountered any problems related to Kismet before. Anyway, Kismet is quite easy for me!” Xu Que smiled as he touched his nose shyly. Kismet, which is so precious for you, can be obtained by me by activating the Lucky Aura. It is totally comparable!
“Little brat, here we are! When will we go to the Heaven Continent?” At this time, Buttface, who was riding on Duan Jiude’s head, rushed in from the gate of the Equipment Refining Sect. Duan Jiude was running forward, trying to throw Buttface off his head, which was quite funny.
Xu Que ignored them. He turned to Zhang Sui and asked, “Did your fourth generation leader tell you how much time we have left?”
“600 years ago, when he told me about this issue, he said the Heaven Continent only had 1,000 years left. So…we have 400 years!” Zhang Sui replied.
Xu Que nodded his head and said with a smile, “Good! Now, you should ask your sect leader to come here and announce that the Equipment Refining Sect has joined the Exploding Heavens Faction. Then, you should continue to control the rest of the sects. I won’t stay here, for I am going to make some trouble in the Heaven Continent! I will be waiting for you there!”
“Eh…” Zhang Sui couldn’t help but twitch his lips as he turned to Mo Junchen. Xu Que’s intention was quite obvious. Once the Equipment Refining Sect joined the Exploding Heavens Faction, most Kismet would belong to the Exploding Heavens Faction when they brought the Earth Continent back to the Heaven Continent in the future. Xu Que was delivering a message to them in a genial but definitely threatening way. This is a robbery and I will plunder your Kismet!
