“Inside… Alas! We were late. Then we were entrapped by Buttface and Duan Jiude. There are seven paths in this place. Buttface and Duan Jiude knew we were following them. So they left some traces at the intersection of the most dangerous path to lure us onto it. When we set foot on that path, all of us were teleported to an altar!” A cultivator said bitterly, shaking his head.
“However, we found deities’ inheritances on that altar, and we found a strand of remnant soul on the altar that was quite feeble—it didn’t even have any intelligence. All the sovereigns of the big sects started to fight over it. Finally, they tore that remnant soul into small pieces and divided them up. This caused the restrictive spell on the altar to be activated, which inflicted great casualties among us!”
“That piece of remnant soul had kept the restrictive spell from being activated. When it was divided up, the restrictive spell was activated, which killed a sovereign from the Nujin Peak of the Tanlang Celestial Realm on the spot. The fragment of the remnant soul that he had stolen fell on the ground. The other sovereigns, who tried to get it, started fighting over it again. Many people were killed in that combat, and the altar was filled with their blood!”
“We managed to escape because we were lucky and were standing at the edge of the altar. But we were still seriously wounded by the restrictive spell. We are quite happy to be alive!” A cultivator said, with fear lingering in his face.
Another cultivator sighed, “Now, they have truly lost their minds! When we came back to this place, the strength of the restrictive spell on the altar had disappeared. It seems they have been driven mad by something. All of them are doing their best to steal those soul fragments by killing each other!”
“What about their guardians? Are they also influenced?” Bai Cailing asked immediately. She felt this issue was quite weird. After all, those people were sovereigns of many sects, who were quite precious. They would never rob the inheritance fragments by risking their lives. This was not only related to their life, but also to the sects behind them. Their fights would result in bloody combat between different sects. So, she believed the words of those cultivators who had managed to escape. Those sovereigns must have been driven mad by something! But why didn’t their guardians stop them?
“They were also influenced! Everyone on that altar was influenced and became mad slowly. When we were at the edge of the altar, we felt upset and had the urge to kill others. If we had not been blown out by their magic arts, we would have been killed in that bloody battle. ” A cultivator told the truth.
Hearing that, the people from the Jade Lake were speechless. Bai Cailing frowned. Even the guardians at the summit of the Golden Celestial Stage could also be influenced! I should really think about whether we should go into this place seriously!
“Then, where are Buttface and Duan Jiude?” Xu Que asked at this time. The inheritances meant nothing to him. He didn’t care about the sovereigns. He only wanted to know where Buttface, Duan Jiude, and Liu Jingning were.
“They…” A cultivator said with embarrassment, “They arrived at a place that faces the altar from another path. Buttface took out a table and some chairs in front of us. Then they started to enjoy a kind of food that is called Spicy Hotpot as they enjoyed the bloody fight on the altar!”
“Hah, hah, hah!” Hearing that, Xu Que couldn’t help but laugh loudly for he was so happy to find out that those people had been fooled by Buttface and Duan Jiude like that.
“Damn! What are you laughing at?” The cultivators stared at Xu Que angrily. The people of the Jade Lake also looked at Xu Que in surprise because they didn’t know why this old man was laughing delightedly.
“I am laughing at Buttface and Duan Jiude, who are so arrogant and despicable! A friend of mine who used to act like them is long dead!” Xu Que sneered at this time. Hearing that, the cultivators calmed down. But the apprentices of the Jade Lake were confused. It seemed this Elder Xu was taking pleasure in the cultivators’ misfortunes. Why did he start to laugh suddenly?
Bai Cailing looked at Xu Que suspiciously for she felt that that laughter was so familiar—it reminded her of that despicable Xu Que! Like father, like son! I guess this Elder Xu must have been very despicable when he was young!
“We are going to leave here. Holy Virgin, you’d better stay away from this place. We believe that the morbid thing on that altar is very horrible. If it is taken out of the altar, something bad will happen!” After giving them some advice, the cultivators left. Obviously, they still had a lingering fear about the things that had happened just now. Even though they had escaped from the altar, they didn’t dare to stay around and just wanted to get out of here.
When they left, the apprentices of the Jade Lake turned to Bai Cailing and waited for her decision. Bai Cailing was a little bit hesitant. If they left now, the reputation of the Jade Lake would be impaired. But the safety of their apprentices would be ensured. But she was not reconciled to leave like this!
“Elder Xu, what do you think?” Bai Cailing couldn’t help but ask as she looked at Xu Que. She had a vague feeling that this Elder Xu was quite powerful. Till now, he had been very calm and not terrified at all, which was strange for a cultivator who was just at the Half-Celestial Stage.
Xu Que replied with a faint smile as he looked at Bai Cailing, “I think it is just like a kind of sport that can mold people’s temperaments! Since we are here, we should go for it! We should get ready for the possible bloodshed!”
What is he talking about? Bai Cailing and the apprentices of the Jade Lake were confused by his words. “Do you mean we should go into this place?” Bai Cailing asked in a concise and comprehensive way.
Xu Que nodded his head, “Right! We should go into it!” Then, he walked forward directly. The altar and the morbid Qi as well as the inheritances on it were nothing for Xu Que. Since it was a trap set up by Buttface and Duan Jiude, they must know it very well. Maybe they even went into this place and figured out the way to solve the puzzle in this place. So Xu Que didn’t take the altar as a threat. He decided to go into this place now for he wanted to see the expression of Buttface and Duan Jiude when they saw him on the altar.
Of course, he also wanted to kill people of the Divine Farmer Clan! Since they had arrived in the Heaven Continent, Xu Que didn’t want to keep a low profile. The Divine Farmer Clan had offended him and threatened Buttface by capturing Liu Jingning. So Xu Que would never let them go. He knew the Divine Farmer Clan was a gigantic sect. He also knew he still had the Sage Sect and the Heaven Palace Academy as his horrible enemies! But the Act-Tough Saint would never be intimidated by them!
The Divine Farmer Clan is nothing! I won’t be intimidated by them even if they have Taiyi Golden Celestials! I won’t be intimidated by them even if they have the Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven! I won’t be intimidated by them even if this sect is the overlord of the Taiyin Celestial Realm! I won’t be intimidated by them even if this sect is almost as powerful as the Sage Sect!
Because I am the Act-Tough Saint! If the worse comes to worst, I could plant all of these issues on Buttface and Duan Jiude!
