Chapter 1247: The Mirror Lake
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Four months passed by very quickly! After leaving the Equipment Refining Sect, Xu Que, Mo Junchen, Buttface, and Duan Jiude kept moving toward the eastern area of the Xuanyi Celestial Realm. Taking several Teleportation Devices, at last they reached the most easterly edge of the Xuanyi Celestial Realm.
There was a lake here. The water in this lake was clear and quiet like a mirror. Even winds couldn’t create any ripples on it. According to what Mo Junchen had said, this was a secret passage to the Heaven Continent, a kind of back door. The lake was like a mirror that reflected the sky in its water.The Heaven Continent was above the Earth Continent. The correct way to get there was by going upward. Normally, nobody could reach the Heaven Continent by just flying upward. People could only reach the Heaven Continent by traveling along the Passageway of Heaven and Earth.
This place was different. Anyone who broke the lake’s surface would also break the sky, for the mirror-like lake surface was just like the real sky. People could reach the Heaven Continent by breaking the lake’s surface. So, this passage could also lead to the Heaven Continent, although the traveling direction of this passage was opposite to that of the Passageway of Heaven and Earth.
“Holy sh*t! I didn’t expect that there was a place like this! It is much easier than the one I mentioned before!” Buttface shouted immediately after seeing this place.
Mo Junchen asked as he looked at Buttface curiously, “Do you know other passages?”
“Of course! I know everything! There is a place where people can travel between the Heaven Continent and the Earth Continent! The Interface Point there is very weak. Anyone who can break it can also travel to the Heaven Continent!” Buttface said proudly.
Hearing that, Mo Junchen said with a smile as he shook his head, “You mean the former site of the Passageway of Heaven and Earth in the Zhenyuan Celestial Realm, right? The passage used to be set up in that place. But it was ruined later. However, as you said, the Interface Point there is very weak. But we are still not powerful enough to break it!”
“No, I believe it is possible for us!” Buttface said in a recalcitrant manner.
“Did you try it?” Mo Junchen asked with a smile. Buttface didn’t know what to say for he didn’t try it before. He just believed it was possible. However, to save his face, Buttface straightened himself and shouted as he pointed at Mo Junchen, “Guardian Mo, mind your words! I am the Deputy Faction Leader! You should obey the rules of our faction! Your attitude toward me is totally unacceptable!”
“…” Mo Junchen twitched his lips and didn’t know what to say. He called Xu Que Faction Leader to show his due respect. After all, Xu Que saved his life. But it didn’t mean he had to show his due respect to Buttface. However, he figured he shouldn’t take Buttface’s words seriously. So, he ignored Buttface and started to observe the lake in front of him.
“Faction Leader, only a few people know this lake. Actually, almost nobody could break it. Even the controllers of the six Celestial Realms have to spend a lot of time and energy to break it. Now, our physiques are strong enough. With the help of Buttface, I guess we can open the passage within six months!” Mo Junchen said with a smile as he pointed at Buttface. Apparently, he was also impressed by Buttface’s extraordinary physique.
“Six months? That’s too long!” Xu Que frowned for he was so eager to see Jiang Hongyan in the Heaven Continent. Six months was too long for him.
Too long? Hearing that, Mo Junchen said with a wry smile, “Faction Leader, the time we will spend here is almost the same as the time we would spend in traveling through the Passageway of Heaven and Earth. Although we would feel we could reach the destination instantly, more than five months would have passed in the outside world. Now, we only need six months to break this lake. Then we can reach the Heaven Continent instantly. It is already quite fast!”
“I get it!” Xu Que said and nodded his head. It was just like taking the Teleportation Devices in the Four Great Continents. People spent three to four hours in the Teleportation Device to reach the North Sea from the East Continent. However, two to three months passed by in the outside world. The Passageway of Heaven and Earth also operated like this. So, six months were not very long if you looked at it that way.
However, Xu Que’s confusion raised Mo Junchen’s suspicions. If Xu Que came from the Heaven Continent, why didn’t he know about the Passageway of Heaven and Earth? If he didn’t come from the Heaven Continent, how could he say he had 3,000 deacons and over 1 million members in the Heaven Continent?
Xu Que sensed Mo Junchen’s suspicions. He pointed at Buttface and Duan Jiude and said calmly to Mo Junchen, “Guardian Mo, I haven’t been to the Heaven Continent. But they were from the Heaven Continent!”
“Oh? But…why?” Mo Junchen was confused. How could a man who hadn’t been to the Heaven Continent have such a big sect there?
“There is something I can’t divulge! Guardian Mo, you will know everything when you get there. Anyway, don’t worry! I won’t make irresponsible remarks, and it is unnecessary for me to fool you!” Xu Que said with a sincere smile as he patted Mo Junchen’s shoulder. Hearing that, Mo Junchen nodded his head and didn’t make a detailed inquiry. He also believed Xu Que didn’t need to fool him for he would know everything when they arrived at the Heaven Continent. But…why do I still get a bad feeling about this? Mo Junchen scratched his head with puzzlement.
Soon, they stopped their small talk and started to punch the lake surface. Among them, Duan Jiude was the only one who couldn’t do damage to the lake surface. His physique hadn’t been toughened enough. However, he still punched the lake surface with his fist. When his fist touched the lake surface, he was knocked back and fell on the lakeside heavily.
“Ah! This lake is so creepy! I almost hurt my back! Holy sh*t! My fist is ruptured!” Duan Jiude started to whine on the ground.
Xu Que said with a smile as he shook his head, “Duan Jiude, you’d better stay there! You are the weakest one among us. Anyone of us could beat you up!”
“Nonsense! You know nothing about the way of my cultivation!” Duan Jiude stopped whining and shouted after sitting up.
Buttface said disdainfully, “You are just a piece of junk! Let me show you how to break the surface of this lake!” Then Buttface stepped out and was about to punch the lake surface. Normally, Buttface would run away when he saw Duan Jiude’s setback. However, it seemed he had made up his mind to go back to the Heaven Continent this time and make fun of Duan Jiude. So, he set foot on the lake surface eagerly!
