Chapter 1258: We Should Balance Work and Rest

Clap, clap, clap… Buttface came to himself. When he saw the two crooked words Holy Physique on Xu Que’s chest, he shook his head and clapped his paws as he exclaimed, “Awesome! These two words are magnificent!”
“Alas! We should keep a low profile! It is just the Holy Physique and nothing else! It is just a little bit more powerful than the Mighty Body and the Divine Being. You don’t need to make a fuss!” Xu Que smiled humbly. Mo Junchen frowned for he couldn’t accept Buttface’s aesthetic standards. For him, those two words looked ugly!
Xu Que glanced at Mo Junchen without changing his expression. He guessed that he had realized progress in his physique. So he slapped Buttface, so that Buttface could wake Mo Junchen up, who could provide him with an answer. However, Xu Que was still shocked when he realized his Mighty Body had been enhanced to the Holy Physique. Apparently, it was related to the Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool. The Mighty Body he had obtained before had been strengthened by the God of Hell. Then it became more powerful when the Chaotic Qi merged into it. Now, it was enhanced to an unprecedented level—the Holy Physique by the Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool!
As Mo Junchen said, the Divine Being was the most powerful physique in the era of the deities. Then the Mighty Body of the God of Hell appeared, which could rival the Divine Being. Those Divine Beings with modifiers, like the Divine Being of Taoist Fetus, were just defective divine beings, which couldn’t rival the real Divine Beings at all. Later, someone asked a question. If a physique was more powerful than the Divine Being or the Mighty Body, how would people call it? So, the term Holy Physique was invented.
They believed the strength of the physique had no upper limits. Even the God of Hell or the Divine Being agreed the Mighty Body or the Divine Being was not the limit. The physique at the next level would be even more horrible. However, nobody had realized it until now. The cultivators were on the decline. The Divine Being disappeared. Only some defective physiques which inherited the bloodline of the Divine Being appeared, such as the Divine Being of Taoist Fetus. The Mighty Body of Hades also disappeared when the God of Hell died. Countless people tried to search for it in the God of Hell’s Realm. But nothing was found and most of them were killed in that place. So, people believed the Holy Physique was just a fantasy and could never be realized. It was just like the development of the computer. At the very beginning, people hoped the giant desktop could be turned into a portable tablet computer. However, most people thought it was just a fantasy which couldn’t be realized.
Now, Xu Que had realized the Holy Physique by upgrading his Mighty Body. He seemed quite calm as he acted tough in front of Buttface and Mo Junchen. Actually, his heart was full of wild joy. He believed he was able to defeat all those sovereigns with those so-called Divine Beings, such as the Divine Being of Taoist Fetus of the Sage Sect.
Sometimes, it was quite difficult to explain the Kismet. People should be strong enough to grab opportunities when they arose. Countless people had entered the God of Hell’s Realm. But all of them failed. Xu Que did his best to obtain that opportunity. At last, he obtained the Mighty Body forcibly by risking his life! If he had given up halfway, he would never have this Holy Physique! If he didn’t have the Chaotic Green Lotus, which almost killed him several times, he would never have had his Holy Physique! So, all of this was…predestined!
“Congratulations, Faction Leader!” Mo Junchen congratulated Xu Que with a wry smile at last. Although he didn’t know why Xu Que was so lucky and how Xu Que had obtained this Holy Physique, he didn’t ask and he was not jealous for he had been totally convinced by Xu Que when Xu Que obtained the Mighty Body in the God of Hell’s Realm!
“Little brat, this physique is pretty good! However, you have been performing secluded cultivation for one year, why are you still at the summit of the Human Celestial Stage?” Buttface asked disdainfully at this time. He thought Xu Que, who was a genius in cultivation, would have at least reached the Medium Stage of the Earth Celestial Stage after one year of secluded cultivation. Now, Xu Que’s physique was enhanced, which was very tough. However, it only meant his potential was larger. Compared to the progress of his physique, his progress in cultivation stage was nothing.
“Hey! Calm down. I will definitely realize a breakthrough after performing cultivation for one more year!” Xu Que said with a confident smile. He was sure he would realize a breakthrough with the remaining Celestial Core Power in the pool for his physique had reached the upper limit which didn’t need any Celestial Core Power.
However, Mo Junchen said hesitantly, “Faction Leader, I’m afraid…this is impossible! The consumption of the Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool is far more than I imagined. I thought it could supply Celestial Core Power for at least two years. But…if I’m not wrong, your Holy Physique took away too many essences from this pool. If we continue to stay in it, we will ruin the source of this pool!”
“It doesn’t matter! A Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool is nothing for the Exploding Heavens Faction!” Buttface shouted proudly.
Xu Que was also hesitant. After one year’s cultivation, he knew clearly how precious this pool was. If he continued to perform cultivation, the source of this pool would be harmed. It was just like killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. However, he really needed to realize a breakthrough now. If he couldn’t enhance his strength, he would have difficulties in surviving in the Heaven Continent, let alone searching for Jiang Hongyan in the Heaven Palace Academy. Buttface and Duan Jiude had made a lot of enemies in the Heaven Continent. Once they left this place, they had to face the attack of their enemies at any time.
At this time, a dull sound came in from the Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool. Duan Jiude’s momentum became very strong at this moment, A whirlpool appeared above his forehead. Then Celestial Core Power in this area started to gush into his body together with the Rules of Heaven and Earth. He opened his eyes and his magnificent momentum swept across this place.
“The Initial Stage of the Earth Celestial Stage! Holy sh*t! Duan Jiude, you have realized good progress in your cultivation stage! A good sword never gets dull!” Buttface shouted immediately. Mo Junchen also nodded his head. Duan Jiude had managed to advance two stages from the Medium Stage of the Human Celestial Stage to the Initial Stage of the Earth Celestial Stage within several decades, which was impossible for many young sovereigns.
“Heh, heh, thanks to the inheritance we robbed before, I can make such an achievement. Otherwise, I guess I can’t even reach the Human Celestial Stage for the rest of my life!” Duan Jiude stood up in the pool and said with a smile. Apparently, he and Buttface had obtained some extraordinary inheritance in the Heaven Continent, which provided him with the skill of divination and even enhanced his endowments.
“Elder Duan, congratulations! I’m afraid you have to stop your cultivation here. You should cross your Heavenly Tribulation immediately. Otherwise, once the Celestial Core Power in your body leaks out, your cultivation stage will go back to the Human Celestial Stage!” Mo Junchen reminded him at this time. Duan Jiude realized he hadn’t reached the Earth Celestial Stage completely. After all, he reached the Earth Celestial Stage forcibly with the help of the pool. If he didn’t cross his Heavenly Tribulation, his cultivation stage wouldn’t be solidified and could even fall back to the former stage. The Celestial Core Power in his body would also run off slowly.
“Right! Let me cross my Heavenly Tribulation first! Please continue your cultivation here!” Duan Jiude walked out of the Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool and was about to cross his Heavenly Tribulation.
“Okay! If the tribulation is too powerful, just call us and we will help you!” Xu Que nodded his head. Then he said seriously, “Now, I will continue my cultivation!”
Hearing that, Mo Junchen changed his expression slightly, “Faction Leader, are you sure?” He thought it was a reckless waste of such a precious pool by realizing a breakthrough to the Earth Celestial Stage.
“I have no choice! I have to realize the breakthrough soon. Otherwise, I will be defeated by powerhouses at the Golden Celestial Stage easily!” Xu Que shook his head. Even though he had obtained the Holy Physique and was quite powerful now, if a lot of powerhouses at the Golden Celestial Stage attacked them, Mo Junchen could defend himself at most. The rest of them could do nothing but run away! He used to wound the King Refiner Liu with all kinds of Trap & Kill Arrays. And Xu Que was almost killed at that time. Now, they were in the Heaven Continent, which was full of powerhouses at the Golden Celestial Stage. Xu Que didn’t have time to set up those Trap & Kill Arrays.
“Alas! What a pity!” Mo Junchen sighed as he shook his head.
“It’s nothing! When we were at the Void Training Stage, we used to wash our feet with the Living Holy Water!” Xu Que said with a faint smile.
Just at this time, something happened in that ice coffin in the main hall of the palace. A plume of smoke appeared in the coffin. Then Xuanyuan Wanrong’s voice rang out, “If you want to stay alive, you should leave here today!” Her voice was still cold and indifferent. However, her tone was not as tough as before. It seemed she was advising them to leave instead of driving them away.
Xu Que was stunned. Then he asked, “Does it mean something dangerous will happen tomorrow?”
The smoke in the coffin paused a bit. Then Xuanyuan Wanrong’s voice came in again.”For so many years, I have been sleeping. I wouldn’t have woken up if you didn’t come here with the Taiyi Heaven Book, which made me have a misconception that my real body was back! However, I know everything that happened here! This place is under the control of an organization of which the name is the Sage Sect. They will send over 100 apprentices at the Earth Celestial Stage to perform cultivation alongside the river at the foot of this mountain every 50 years. Now, those apprentices are at the foot of this mountain. According to their schedule, their sect leader will come to this place. However, he will perform cultivation in this Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool!”
The Sage Sect? Hearing that, Xu Que and his teammates lit up their eyes immediately. “We plan to make trouble for the Sage Sect in the Heaven Continent. I didn’t expect they could deliver themselves to our doorsteps!” Xu Que said with a smile. Duan Jiude and Buttface twitched their lips, “Little brat, what you said is incorrect! It seems we deliver ourselves to their doorsteps!”
Xu Que was stunned a bit. Then, he glanced at Buttface and Duan Jiude disdainfully, “Cowards! Wanrong told us their sect leader will come here alone! No matter how powerful he is, he will be killed by the Trap & Kill Arrays set up by me in this place!”
“He is a Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven!” Duan Jiude said quietly.
“A Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven is no…Wait! After coming to the Heaven Continent with difficulty, I suggest we shall set aside our revenge plan and enjoy the beautiful scenery in this world first. Let’s learn the local customs and practices here and promote the cultural development. We shall balance work and rest and we shall not ruin everything in our way!” Xu Que said earnestly. Buttface and Duan Jiude didn’t look down upon Xu Que because of his attitude change. After all, they knew how horrible a Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven in the Heaven Continent. They would never have a chance to defeat a powerhouse like that!
“Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven?” At this time, Xuanyuan Wanrong’s cold smile came in from the ice coffin. “You are talking about the descendant of that man, right? That man, who comes here every 50 years, reached the stage of the Celestial King 100 years ago. Maybe he has become the Patriarch of that sect!”
“F*ck!” Buttface shouted as he turned around and escaped directly. Duan Jiude was also shocked. Then he also planned to leave here before drying his clothes. Even Mo Junchen was dumbfounded. A Celestial King? I didn’t expect a Celestial King could be found in the Heaven Continent! He must be an old monster who has lived for tens of thousands of years!
“Heh, this is quite interesting! I feel like I have become an ant again!” Xu Que clenched his fists with a cold smile.This contrast was quite stark. He had become an invincible cultivator on the Earth Continent. As a cultivator at the Human Celestial Stage, he could even defeat cultivators at the Heaven Celestial Stage. He didn’t expect he would be so weak on the Heaven Continent. However, this was not the first time for him to experience such a stark contrast. Moreover, he had obtained the Holy Physique, which meant he would be invincible in the future. His way of cultivation would be very difficult but bright and full of hopes and challenges.
The ice coffin became silent again. This time, Xuanyuan Wanrong’s remnant soul dropped into deep sleep completely and continued to wait for the arrival of her real body. Xu Que saw this scene and ignored it. In fact, Xu Que had no love for Xuanyuan Wanrong at all. This woman was too cruel and ruthless. He didn’t want to provoke her. Her remnant soul urged Xu Que and his teammates to leave immediately. Actually, she was worried that her real body would die if Xu Que was killed by his enemy. After all, their names had been written down in the Taiyi Heaven Book, which meant they would die together!
“Little brat, stop wasting time here. Let’s retreat immediately. If that Celestial King comes here one day early, all of us will die here!” Buttface urged at this moment. Duan Jiude also nodded his head. If they decided to leave here, Xu Que should use the Space-Breaking Spell. This place had been isolated by restrictive spells completely, and they were not powerful enough to leave here by breaking those spells.
“So, we just go like this? Empty-handed?” Xu Que said with a smile as he looked at everything in this palace, including that Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool. Duan Jiude understood Xu Que’s intention tacitly. So, he said with a smile, “Then let’s hang around in this place before leaving here!”
“Don’t bother doing that! I’ve searched this place. You can’t find anything precious here, except for that pool!” Buttface shouted immediately. Xu Que widened his eyes for he didn’t expect Buttface had searched this place. Damn! This stupid dog was so fast! I didn’t even notice his action! It seems Buttface has done lots of nasty businesses here in the past year!
“Forget it! Let me take away this pool!” Xu Que didn’t care whether Buttface had found anything precious here. He would never leave this pool here!
Hearing that, Mo Junchen was shocked, “Faction Leader, can you…take away this Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool? As far as I know, you will need at least a container at the level of the Low-grade Celestial Artifact to carry it!” Although he knew Xu Que had a lot of Celestial Artifacts, it was not easy to find a container at the level of the Celestial Artifacts, which were quite rare.
“Guardian Mo, you overthink it. I don’t want to take away this Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool for it does not conform to the rules of our faction!” Xu Que waved his hand and said with a smile. Mo Junchen was stunned a bit. Then, he nodded his head with embarrassment. Indeed, it belongs to a Celestial King! It is inappropriate to take it away directly. Moreover, it is not easy to take it away!
At this time, Xu Que continued to say, “OK, we shall stop wasting time here. All of you, get out of this palace. I need one hour to take away this palace. Then, we can leave this place!”
Mo Junchen, “???”
