Chapter 1253: It Has Nothing to Do with Me
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Mo Junchen couldn’t believe what he had heard—his mind was blown. Does this mean a member of the Heaven Palace Sect, which disappeared tens of thousands of years ago, is still alive? And this woman is the head of the Heaven Palace Sect’s South Building! This is totally impossible! Even a Celestial Prime couldn’t live in the shadows for so many years! According to the records in the ancient books, all of them were dead! How could she have survived?
Mo Junchen was confused. He only knew a few things about the Heaven Palace Sect from the ancient books, which had been handed down by his predecessors. But Mo Junchen didn’t know about Xuanyuan Wanrong. However, he did know that those who could become a Building Head were big shots who were extremely powerful.
Gulp! Mo Junchen swallowed with difficulty and said as he looked at Xu Que in surprise, “Faction Leader…you are not fooling me, right? Is the Building Head of the Heaven Palace Sect’s South Building really your Cultivation Companion?”
“Heh, heh, why should I do that? Anyway, she will emerge in several hundred years, and I will introduce you to her!” Xu Que said with a smile.
“Eh, thanks, but that won’t be necessary!” Mo Junchen’s eyelids twitched, and he answered with a wry smile because now he had an ominous feeling in his heart. He didn’t believe that this horrible woman could fall in love with a young cultivator at the Human Celestial Stage. There must be some horrible secrets behind this story. Moreover, Mo Junchen didn’t want to know about it—he didn’t have the guts to get to know the extremely powerful big shots of the Heaven Palace Sect that was destroyed so many years ago.
“Hmm, forget it! Let’s go into this palace first. My Cultivation Companion’s home is also my home. So, be my guest!” Xu Que said as he walked toward the gate of the palace. He didn’t worry about any danger inside the palace. As they approached, they found that the top of the mountain was shielded by a horrible restrictive spell, which meant that nobody could enter this area. But they didn’t find any restrictive spell around the palace. Xu Que was sure Xuanyuan Wanrong was not here. So he was quite calm and decided he wanted to obtain something precious from the palace.
Xu Que opened the gate of the palace. The two sides of the gate created a deafening noise, and a gust of chilly wind blew out into their faces.
“Holy sh*t! The Celestial Core Power is so dense here! My body is trembling, and I can’t help but rush into this palace!” Buttface shouted in surprise as he ran to Xu Que. Xu Que was also surprised a bit. They had already been impressed by the magnificent Celestial Core Power on the mountaintop. They didn’t expect the Celestial Core Power in the palace, which was the origin of the Celestial Core Power outside the palace, could be so dense! It felt as if every breath in this palace was equivalent to performing cultivation on the Earth Continent for three days and three nights!
“Interesting! No wonder that woman was so powerful! This palace where she used to live is fantastic!” Xu Que smiled and stepped into the palace. Mo Junchen opened his mouth, hesitating. When he found that Buttface and Duan Jiude didn’t say anything, he had to go into the palace following them.
When they entered, Xu Que saw an ice coffin in front of him, which was identical with the one he had seen under the Celestial Burial Valley. He could also sense a strand of Xuanyuan Wanrong’s aura. Apparently, the woman had lain in this coffin for a long time. Xu Que was confused. Why does she like sleeping in a coffin? Does she want to become a zombie? He shook his head and ignored the ice coffin, for he found it was empty. It turned out that the entire palace was empty, and Xu Que couldn’t find any Celestial Artifacts in it.
However, Xu Que and his teammates were still fascinated to know the origin of the magnificent Celestial Core Power. They walked, following the Celestial Core Power. When they walked into a wing of the palace, all of them stopped. Here, there was a pool that was giving off clouds and mist. It looked like a hot spring. All the Celestial Core Power was coming out of this pool. When they looked at it carefully, they found the water under the clouds and mist was golden. It resembled a golden lake with many ripples on its surface even though there was no wind in this palace.
Howl! “I think we have found a precious item! I bet something extraordinary is in this pool!” Buttface shouted as he dashed forward.
Mo Junchen was also surprised, “No, this pool…itself is a precious item! If I’m not wrong, this must be the legendary Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool recorded in the ancient books!”
“The Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool? I have never heard of this. Tell us about it.” Xu Que said curiously.
Mo Junchen spoke seriously, “It is said that the ancient deities liked bathing in this pool, which could remove the mortal dirt and defects from their souls and Taoist Connotations and make them sparkle with the light of deities! However, this pool has been hidden away in this palace for so many years, and its Celestial Core Power had been flowing away incessantly. I’m afraid it is not as efficient as before. But it is still an extremely powerful tonic for us!”
“What? A tonic? Guardian Mo, are you kidding? Do you mean we have to drink the bathwater of those so-called deities?” Xu Que asked disdainfully.
Mo Junchen said with a smile, “No, Faction Leader, you misunderstood me! I mean we can also take a bath here. It would accelerate our cultivation just as if we were to take numerous elixirs!” Xu Que was so happy to hear that. He really needed to realize a breakthrough in his Cultivation Stage now! Although he had modified his physique in the God of Hell’s Realm and he had reached the summit of the Human Celestial Stage, he was still too weak on the Heaven Continent. If he could reach the Earth Celestial Stage, he would be much more powerful.
“Humph! You really know a lot!” Just at this moment, a cold, crisp voice full of a powerful momentum rang out from the palace.
Buttface, Mo Junchen, and Duan Jiude were shocked by the voice. Xu Que’s expression also changed. He turned around in disbelief. That voice was so familiar. It was the voice of Xuanyuan Wanrong. The woman was still here! No, it was impossible for her to have come out from the Celestial Burial Valley. But why could I hear her voice here? Does it mean she is sending a voice message as she did last time in the deserted place? Xu Que didn’t do anything reckless. He was looking around and trying to find the source of the voice. Mo Junchen’s head was covered by a cold sweat. Even though he had reached the summit of the Golden Celestial Stage, he felt like an ant in front of that magnificent voice.
“Guardian Mo, don’t panic!” Buttface patted Mo Junchen’s hand as he consoled him. Mo Junchen nodded his head.
Flop! Then, Buttface fell on the ground and gasped, Howl! “I…am going to die! Senior, it has nothing to do with me! I hope you can throw my body out when you kill all of them. Thank you!” Then, Buttface started to play dead by closing his eyes and stretching out his legs on the ground.
