Chapter 1249: The Heaven Continent Is So Horrible
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Five months passed by quickly!
The surface of Mirror Lake, which had previously been so smooth, was totally ruined. Countless shallow pits, which were three to four feet deep, could be found on the surface. They were small dents on the surface. At this rate, Xu Que thought they might need over ten years to reach the bottom of this lake. The surface of the lake was composed of water. However, to break it was like breaking ice.
Mo Junchen told them they didn’t need to reach the bottom of the lake. They could just break the surface of the lake to open the passage to the Heaven Continent. Hearing that, Xu Que let out a sigh of relief, for they would only need one more month to break the surface of the lake.
When Xu Que punched the lake surface, he couldn’t help but look at Buttface. He got a vague feeling that Buttface wasn’t using his full strength to punch the lake surface, although his attack was as powerful as that of Xu Que and Mo Junchen. Buttface, who could handle the attack skillfully, pretended he had been exhausted, which make Xu Que quite suspicious. Anyway, they had been punching the lake surface for five months. Xu Que didn’t want to urge Buttface in the last month.
Actually, Xu Que also started to doubt whether his decision to go to the Heaven Continent was too hasty. During the past five months, Xu Que had acquired information about the Heaven Continent through messages from Buttface and Duan Jiude. Buttface, who had tried to back out, suggested Xu Que find a place to hide first thing when they reached the Heaven Continent. At the very beginning, Buttface was eager to seek revenge in the Heaven Continent. Now, when they were about to break the Mirror Lake, he began to worry about their safety in the Heaven Continent. Buttface said the Heaven Continent was full of cultivators at the Heaven Celestial Stage and the Golden Celestial Stage. Apparently, this continent was much more powerful than the Earth Continent. Of course, cultivators at the Qi Refining Stage could also be found there. This continent was much more powerful than all the rest of the worlds he was used to going to.
Buttface had instigated Xu Que to seek revenge against the Divine Being of Taoist Fetus of the Sage Sect when they went back to the Heaven Continent. Also, Buttface had asked Xu Que to punish all the rest of the people who pursued and harassed Jiang Hongyan. However, when Xu Que was told of the actual situation, he almost spat blood on the spot. The Divine Being of Taoist Fetus of the Sage Sect had reached the summit of the Heaven Celestial Stage when Duan Jiude and Buttface ran away from the Heaven Continent. His physique was extremely close to the Divine Being of Taoist Fetus. With the assistance of a Middle-grade Celestial Artifact, this guy was very powerful. Xu Que believed this guy could defeat three to five powerhouses at the Golden Celestial Stage on the Earth Continent. Almost all the rest of the geniuses of the Heaven Palace Sect who used to pursue Jiang Hongyan had reached the Heaven Celestial Stage. Each of them was also very powerful, for they had their own Celestial Artifacts.
This was a suffocating pressure for Xu Que. Whenever he felt he was invincible in a place, he would always find countless people who were more powerful than him. This was an inescapable fact. When a cultivator was powerful enough, he would be qualified to find a higher realm, and the gap between himself and the real powerful people would increase. Now, Xu Que was in such a situation. Although he was not invincible on the Earth Continent, he had found powerhouses who were much more powerful than him. Those sovereigns in the Heaven Continent were at the Heaven Celestial Stage, which was different than the Heaven Celestial Stage on the Earth Continent.
Now, Xu Que, who was at the Human Celestial Stage, was able to kill ordinary powerhouses at the Heaven Celestial Stage. He believed those geniuses on the Heaven Continent could also do that when they were at the Human Celestial Stage. Therefore, Xu Que found he had no advantages at all. First, his gifts couldn’t give him any advantage. There was a limit for the gifts of a genius, which couldn’t be magnified forever. To some extent, Xu Que’s cultivation was based on his gifts. However, people with extraordinary gifts like him could also be found. The geniuses in the Heaven Continent might even be more gifted than Xu Que.
So, only strength and equipment could be used for comparison. Those geniuses were at the Heaven Celestial Stage, but Xu Que was just at the Human Celestial Stage. All those geniuses had Celestial Artifacts. Some of them even had Middle-grade Celestial Artifacts. Xu Que’s Firestorm Wheels and a sword were Low-grade Celestial Artifacts, and a Sword Spirit could barely break even with those geniuses. So, Xu Que knew he had no advantages at all. In the Heaven Continent, he would still be an ant.
More importantly, those geniuses at the Heaven Celestial Stage were not the most dreaded enemies. The big powers behind them were the most horrible enemies. For example, the Sage Sect, which had held a foothold in the Heaven Continent for a long time, was quite powerful, and its background was extremely horrible. Buttface and Duan Jiude told him the Divine Being of Taoist Fetus had over ten guardians at the Golden Celestial Stage who protected him in public or in secret, let alone the overall strength of the Sage Sect.
Therefore, Xu Que started to doubt whether he was too impulsive. What could they do if they rushed to the Heaven Continent? It seemed they could do nothing. Moreover, if they made some trouble there, they would be hunted down by countless cultivators at the Heaven Celestial Stage or the Golden Celestial Stage. If their enemies really wanted to kill them, they had to face the attack of Taiyi Celestials. At that time, they could do nothing but run for their lives.
A watched pot never boils. Does it mean I have to go to the Heaven Continent when I am powerful enough? Xu Que began to waver. He thought they should do it in a slow and steady way. Otherwise, if he went to the Heaven Continent in a hurry, he would hurl himself willingly into their net. After all, the Heaven Continent, which was totally different from the world he was in currently, was full of powerhouses. The Divine Escape Spell and even the Celestial Grade Divine Escape Spell he always used would be less efficient in the Heaven Continent, which meant he couldn’t do whatever he wanted to as before.
“Hey, little brat, why do you stop? Are you slacking off?” At this time, Buttface, who noticed Xu Que was in a daze, stopped his work and started to denounce Xu Que. Hearing that, Mo Junchen also turned to Xu Que and also stopped his movements. He saw hesitation and a faltering will in Xu Que’s face.
“Tell me, is it necessary for us to go to the Heaven Continent in such a hurry?” Xu Que asked as he looked at the others in this area. Apparently, he was asking Buttface and Duan Jiude, who knew him very well.
“I don’t think it…is necessary!”
“Eh, now that I have calmed down and thought about it, I don’t think it is necessary either!”
Buttface and Duan Jiude shook their heads. In the past several months, they had kept sending messages to Xu Que to tell him the actual strength of the Heaven Continent, which meant they had been intimidated and tried to persuade Xu Que to hold back. Mo Junchen, who had said nothing, just waited as he looked at Xu Que calmly. He knew Xu Que was a person who welcomed suggestions but wouldn’t change his mind easily if he had made up his mind.
Should we go to the Heaven Continent immediately? Mo Junchen knew Xu Que already had the answer in his mind, which was wavering a bit now. Mo Junchen believed Xu Que wouldn’t change his mind at last. How could a man who obtained the Mighty Body of Hades at all costs in the God of Hell’s Realm shrink back at this time? Apparently, Mo Junchen was the only one who knew the answer clearly among them.
After a short hesitation, Xu Que lifted his right leg and stomped on the lake surface with his Taoist Connotation heavily.
Immediately, thickly dotted cracks appeared on the fragmented lake surface.
