Chapter 1317: What a Coincidence!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Xu Que was shocked and even terrified by the thought he had just had! The woman continued shouting “Xuanyuan”! The coincidence between Xuanyuan Wanrong and the name this woman was shouting was definitely cause for concern. It was a fact that Xuanyuan Wanrong used to be the building head of the Heaven Palace Sect’s South Building. Although Liu Jingning hadn’t mentioned which building the building head this woman was lamenting belonged to, the fact that he and Xuanyuan Wanrong were both building heads sent shivers up Xu Que’s spine!
“Jingning, is the name of that building head mentioned in the story?” Xu Que asked, looking at Liu Jingning. Liu Jingning was a bit confused by his question. Then she answered, “I remember their names are mentioned at the end of the story. The name of the building head was Xuanyuan Qishang and the Holy Virgin’s name was Guan Chuchu!”
“What? Xuanyuan Qishang…?” Xu Que frowned and thought to himself, “Since their family name was Xuanyuan, then…I think I have almost figured out the relationship between them. Apparently, Xuanyuan Wanrong was related to Xuanyuan Qishang. It was highly possible that Xuanyuan Wanrong was the child of Xuanyuan Qishang and Guan Chuchu! Of course, this was just speculation. Maybe Xuanyuan Wanrong was Xuanyuan Qishang’s sister. Anyway, they must be relatives!”
“Holy sh*t! I am so smart that I have figured out the reason for the Heaven Palace Sect’s extermination!” Buttface shouted in surprise. Duan Jiude’s eyes lit up, and he shouted too as he looked at Buttface excitedly, “Mr. Buttface, so have I!”
“Mr. Duan, you are also very smart!” Buttface said as he looked at Duan Jiude. Then they shouted together as they shook hands, “We have found the truth!”
“This extermination was definitely caused by revenge!” Buttface said confidently.
“Exactly!” Duan Jiude nodded his head, “Apparently, Xuanyuan Wanrong must be the child of Xuanyuan Qishang and Guan Chuchu. When her parents were killed, the Heaven Palace Sect adopted her. When she grew up, she managed to find out the truth about her life story!” Buttface added, “So she worked very hard in cultivation, nursing her desire for vengeance. At last, she managed to avenge her parents by wiping out the entire Heaven Palace Sect!”
The cooperation between Buttface and Duan Jiude was perfect. Each of them narrated their speculations perfectly in sync. However, Xu Que was quite calm. Their speculation was logical because Xuanyuan Wanrong really did had the motive to do that. However, Buttface and Duan Jiude had failed to find any solid evidence! Bold guesses could be used in the analysis of some issues. However, too many secrets were hiding behind this, which couldn’t be understood with common sense!
“Your speculations don’t hold water! At least not the part where the Heaven Palace Sect was wiped out by Xuanyuan Wanrong!” Xu Que said, shaking his head.
“Why?” Buttface and Duan Jiude asked as they looked at Xu Que in surprise.
“As you said, if Xuanyuan Wanrong had wiped out the Heaven Palace Sect after learning the truth, she would have had a deep hatred toward the Heaven Palace Sect. Do you remember what she said under the Celestial Burial Valley? She said she was the building bead of the Heaven Palace Sect’s South Building. I didn’t sense any hatred from her words. When she gave me an ID plate of a temporary apprentice of the South Building, I got a feeling from her tone that I was seeking a connection in a high place, which doesn’t conform to your speculations!” Xu Que replied. Xu Que’s instinct told him that Xuanyuan Wanrong had no idea about this story at all.
“Eh…” Buttface and Duan Jiude didn’t know how to answer Xu Que.
“Faction Leader, I think you are trapped in a misconception!” Mo Junchen said at this time, “Because they share a family name, you just connect Xuanyuan Wanrong with Xuanyuan Qishang. I think it is also possible that Xuanyuan Wanrong is irrelevant to Xuanyuan Qishang. They just share a family name!”
“Boo! Guardian Mo, your speculation is even more absurd. The possibility of a coincidence like that is too low! They belong to the same sect and share the same family name. Nobody believes that is irrelevant!” Buttface said disdainfully.
Mo Junchen answered with a wry smile, “I am talking about a possibility. After all, we can’t rule out these possibilities! However, I don’t think it is the time for us to talk about that now. In this cave…” Mo Junchen continued to say as he pointed at the opening of the cave, “…the biggest question now is who was the woman who was singing just now? Are we still going to enter the cave?” Mo Junchen looked at Xu Que.
Xu Que nodded his head, “What you said is correct! The woman in this cave is the key point! However, I think it is always good to know more about this cave and the one in it before going into it. In case we should find the soul of Guan Chuchu in this cave, it will be quite interesting, right?” After saying that, Xu Que couldn’t help but smile delightedly. If Guan Chuchu’s soul was in this cave, the soul of Xuanyuan Qishang might also be here. Once he released both of them to the outside world, the Heaven Palace Academy would be doomed!
However, Xu Que sensed something was wrong the next moment. He didn’t expect anybody would reply to him when he finished speaking. However, Mo Junchen, Buttface, Duan Jiude ,and Liu Jingning were all staring at Xu Que at this moment. In their eyes, Xu Que could see surprise, confusion, and even horror! Then Xu Que realized that they were not staring at him, but at something behind him!
“No! Come on! Oh, no! Don’t tell me that woman is standing behind me at this moment!” Xu Que said with an embarrassed smile. His heart started to tremble at this moment. His back was facing the opening of the cave. He got a feeling that something horrible was just behind his back!
Xu Que didn’t believe something like this could happen to him because he thought his kismet was pretty good.But when he saw Buttface, Duan Jiude, and Mo Junchen nod their heads toward him, Xu Que knew a disaster was imminent. He took out a Divine Escape Spell and held it tightly in one of his hands. Then he took out the Tough-Acting King’s Purple-Gold Rod with the other hand. In this way, he could attack or escape at any time. If the woman behind him was really Guan Chuchu, her strength must be very horrible, since the story said she was killed outside the Heaven Palace Sect’s ancestral grave after losing all her cultivation achievements. However, it was just a story! Nobody knew whether it was true or not.
“Brother…Que, she is looking at you!” Buttface said with a trembling voice at this time. He was holding Duan Jiude’s hand, and both of them were about to run away. Liu Jingning also seemed very nervous, and her face had turned pale. She was ready to provide assistance to Xu Que. Mo Junchen said seriously, his face covered with cold sweat, “Faction Leader, we…are under her control and can’t move at this moment!”
“What?” Xu Que was stunned! He didn’t expect the woman would be so powerful! She didn’t launch an attack. But she had managed to restrain Mo Junchen who was at the summit of the Golden Celestial Stage! “Wait! No way! Why don’t I have the feeling of being controlled? I can move freely!” Xu Que was surprised. He lifted his arm and found he was not restrained at all.
“Xuanyuan…” A shrill voice rang out from behind him at this time. It sounded like the woman was shouting right next to Xu Que’s ears. Her voice was so creepy and thrilling! “Holy sh*t…” Xu Que shouted and turned around. He was about to attack the woman with his rod and escape with the Divine Escape Spell.
Suddenly, the woman shouted again, “My child…Xuanyuan…my child…” The next moment, a figure flew by in front of Xu Que’s eyes. Now he was not able to move; it was as if he was being restrained by a great power. The next moment, Xu Que rose up into the air and his body was turned around slowly. At last, he was sucked into the woman’s embrace!
