Chapter 1291: Use Your Head!

“Something ordinary? Is a High-grade Celestial Artifact just a toy for your son?” All the people in the area who had been observing Xu Que’s antics couldn’t help but twitch their lips and think this thought to themselves at this time. However, they could do nothing but admire the artifact. They would never rob a powerhouse whose Cultivation Stage might reach a Celestial King or an even higher stage! Only a fool would do that!
Maybe some reckless disbanded cultivators would consider robbing Xu Que at this moment. But everyone present here was people from the most powerful sects in different Celestial Realms. So it was impossible for them to risk their lives and sects just for a High-grade Celestial Artifact or some precious materials. Although they had planned to rob Xu Que when they saw the Purple Sky Age Metal, they had definitely missed their opportunity.
HOWL! “I know you! You always end up taking away all the good items!” Buttface shouted exasperatedly at this time. Xu Que rolled his eyes and said as he played with the Tough-Acting King’s Purple-Gold Rod, “Buttface, you know very well that all the Purple Sky Age Metal was brought here by me!”
“But you also needed the divine fire to reforge the Purple Sky Age Metal! D*mn! This is so annoying. I don’t want to talk about it anymore. I will find that girl and leave here!” Buttface said, embarrassed. He had planned to get rid of Xu Que so that he could come to this place to find a divine artifact. He didn’t expect that he would have to go back empty-handed.
“Are you going to leave here? What about the inheritance in this place…?” Xu Que was surprised by Buttface’s words.
Buttface sneered. “Heh, heh, forget about the inheritances! We have only found two incomplete inheritances here, which have already been shared by Mr. Duan and me. Of course, this place is quite spacious. If you have guts, you could go deeper into this place and try to find more. Anyway, I don’t want to go with you!”
Hearing this, the rest of the people in this place frowned immediately. According to Buttface’s words, he was not confident that it would be worth it to search the rest of the places in this area. This meant that their expenditures of time in this place had to stop now. After all, they didn’t know how to get into this place in the very beginning. If Buttface and Duan Jiude hadn’t led them to this place, they would never have come so far. Now, Buttface and Duan Jiude didn’t dare to search deeper in this place. They could get killed easily if they rushed into this place recklessly.
“What a pity! We have to return empty-handed!” Ji Wuyun said as he shrugged helplessly. He hadn’t expected a lot from this trip. Moreover, he didn’t need to strive for the position of Holy Son of his sect. He had done his best but had still failed to obtain anything precious. So, it was time for him to leave here.
“Heh, I knew we could never obtain the inheritance of the deities in such an easy way!” The sovereign of the Zhouwang Palace shook his head with a wry smile. Now, all of them had decided to give up. Although they came to this place with great difficulty, they had given up their hopes when they saw this Taoist Sanctum which had fallen into ruin.
“Hah, hah, don’t forget the remnant soul that is still on that altar! We can share it when we leave here!” The sovereign of the Dishou Mountain said with a smile. The other two sovereigns nodded their heads. Apparently, they were also thinking about that remnant soul now. If they could go back with those soul fragments, their efforts wouldn’t have been completely wasted.
“Elder Xu, should we leave here without you or together? Bai Cailing asked as she looked at Xu Que at this time.
“You go first. I am going to meet someone before leaving here!” Xu Que said. He planned to see Liu Jingning. Since they had been separated in the Celestial Burial Valley, he hadn’t seen her for more than eight years. Moreover, many people from the Utopia Faction had just been killed in this place. So he wanted to see Liu Jingning and console her.
When Ji Wuyun realized that Xu Que was going to still stay here, he said hurriedly, “Elder Xu, in that case, for my Celestial Artifact that you borrowed just now…”
“Don’t worry! As the old saying goes, the timely return of a loan makes it easier to borrow a second time. I will find time to go to the Qisha Celestial Realm in the near future. At that time, I will return it to you!” Xu Que replied calmly. Ji Wuyun’s celestial artifact had already been turned into equipment-refining essence. Thus, of course, Xu Que had nothing to give back to Ji Wuyun at this time. So he had to use stalling tactics. However, Ji Wuyun didn’t doubt Xu Que’s promise. He believed this old man, who didn’t care about a High-grade Celestial Artifact, would never refuse to return an Inferior Celestial Artifact to him in the future. So he nodded his head and said with a smile, “Okay! We are looking forward to your visit!”
“You can count on me!” Xu Que replied with a kind smile. However, deep in his heart, the Qisha Celestial Realm had already been blacklisted. He would never go there unless it was absolutely necessary.
Buttface and Duan Jiude, at the forefront of the group, walked toward the ruins in the rear part of this place where they had left Liu Jingning. First, Liu Jingning had been wounded by some restrictive spells. Then, after having a fight with the Divine Farmer Clan, her wounds had been further aggravated. When she was saved by Buttface and Duan Jiude, she had to heal her wounds by performing secluded cultivation. However, Xu Que was here now. He had plenty of elixirs that could be used to heal her wounds. Moreover, he also had a Nine-Reincarnation Peach which was full of Celestial Core Power. A small piece of this precious item would be more effective than any secluded cultivation or elixir!
Suddenly, Buttface and Duan Jiude stopped abruptly and stood in puzzlement. Seeing that, Xu Que asked immediately, “What’s wrong? Where is she?”
“Holy sh*t! Something is wrong with this place!” Buttface turned around and shouted as if he had just seen a ghost. Duan Jiude scratched his head and said with wonder, “This doesn’t make sense at all. We hid her in a small house in this place. How did she disappear together with the house?”
Hearing this, all the people in the group stopped. Ji Wuyun and the other two sovereigns looked at Buttface and Duan Jiude in surprise. They knew who Buttface and Duan Jiude were talking about. After all, they had seen the Divine Farmer Clan take people of the Utopia Faction in the very beginning. Then, they saw Liu Jingning be saved by Buttface and Duan Jiude. However, they didn’t expect that Liu Jingning would disappear at this moment.
“Are you absolutely sure this is the correct position?” Xu Que couldn’t help but frown as he stepped forward. This place was very spacious and full of ruins. Everything looked the same here and it was quite difficult to find the correct direction. So it could be quite normal if Buttface and Duan Jiude didn’t find the correct position.
“No way! Something is definitely wrong here!” Mo Junchen said in a low voice seriously. He continued to say as he pointed at the place where Buttface and Duan Jiude were, “We set up a defensive Array over there when we left. Now the Array is still there. But the lady and the house have disappeared!”
“What?” At this moment, Xu Que’s expression changed abruptly. Liu Jingning had already been wounded. If she had been attacked by others or some restrictive spells, she would be in great danger.
“Hey! Wait, Elder Xu! It seems there is a Secret Door here!” Ji Wuyun said as he walked up at this moment.
“A Secret Door?” Xu Que was puzzled. Ji Wuyun said nothing but threw out a strand of Celestial Core Power. BANG! Along with a dull sound, an invisible barrier appeared in front of Buttface. Ji Wuyun’s Celestial Core Power dissipated immediately when it touched the barrier.
“It is over there as I expected!” Ji Wuyun said seriously. “It is a phenomenon existing in the ruins of many ancient battlefields, which can be used to hide some places. We call it a Secret Door. It is a pity that we haven’t found the way to break into it yet! Elder Xu, have you seen it in your era?”
“My era?” Xu Que was surprised a bit. Then he shrugged and said, “In my era, we call it a hallucination!”
“Hallucination? It sounds mysterious!” The people listening were surprised by this term for they hadn’t heard of it before.
“So, how should we break open this hallucination now?” Buttface shouted.
“Just use your head!” Xu Que said, rolling his eyes. “You ask me! Whom should I ask?”
“Okay!” Buttface replied as he leaned forward. The next moment, he kicked out his hind legs violently and started to dash forward rapidly like a black arrow.
BOOM! Buttface’s head hit the invisible barrier heavily, which caused a deafening big bang. After that, Buttface’s heart-wrenching cries rang out. “Holy sh*t! It hurts so much! Why did you say I should use my head? Your suggestion was completely useless!”
