Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Li Xuanqi’s words had provided Xu Que with key information—the aura! Xu Que realized the truth suddenly. As Li Xuanqi had said, Xuanyuan Qishang and Guan Chuchu, the two souls full of obsession, woke up because they recognized the aura on his body. The problem was solved! They mistook Xu Que for their child because of the aura on Xu Que’s body! “Obviously, the restrictive spell here had been opened by Guan Chuchu and Xuanyuan Qishang! But why did they wake up when they sensed the aura…?”
Then Xu Que figured out the answer and couldn’t help but smile at this moment. Apparently, there were two possibilities. First, they sensed Xuanyuan Wanrong’s aura from the Taiyi Heaven Book which Xu Que had taken from her. Or, they sensed Xuanyuan Wanrong’s remnant soul that had been taken away by Xu Que from the Snow Fog Mountain when he had first arrived on the Heaven Continent. Obviously, the probability of the latter was higher. Or, even, the misunderstanding had been caused by both of these two possibilities!
At the thought of this, Xu Que smiled to himself. Then he sighed and shook his head as if he was quite sad, “Alas! They were gone too soon! I also regret the decision of sealing myself away. When I woke up, I found everything had changed!”
“…..” Li Xuanqi nodded his head silently to show his understanding of this feeling. However, the next moment, Xu Que said as he stared at Li Xuanqi seriously, “But then again, Li Xuanqi, I have to settle a score with you!”
“Ah? Mr. Xu, I…don’t remember offending you ever!” Li Xuanqi was puzzled by Xu Que’s words.
Xu Que sneered, “Your Heaven Palace Academy is offering a price on my head! So, you tell me, should I settle the score with you or somebody else in the Heaven Palace Academy?”
“What? I…” Li Xuanqi was dumbfounded after hearing that. He had withdrawn from the world for many years. To some extent, he had died. He could only stay in the ancestral grave. Once he left the grave, his soul would dissipate together with his body. Of course, this was just his current situation. Several thousand years from now, he could leave this place when his cultivation reached perfection. However, Li Xuanqi was totally scared when Xu Que complained about the Heaven Palace Academy in front of him. Although he didn’t know why the Heaven Palace Academy would try to capture Xu Que, he didn’t dare to ask because the two powerful souls beside Xu Que could kill him easily for no reason! In this way, his lifelong effort would be wasted.
“Mr. Xu, I think this must be a misunderstanding! According to seniority, you are my Patriarch. This means you are also the Patriarch of the Heaven Palace Academy! They must have done that because they didn’t know your identity. I hope you could forgive them magnanimously!” Li Xuanqi said hurriedly, for he feared that Xu Que would ask those two souls to kill him.
“Heh! If I really wanted to haggle over this issue with them, do you think the Heaven Palace Academy would still exist now? I just don’t want to waste my time on them. But they keep harassing me like flies. My patience is limited!” Xu Que said indifferently, his words full of arrogance and disdain.
Li Xuanqi replied, “Mr. Xu, please don’t worry. Several days from now, the Heaven Palace Academy has a worship day for its ancestors. The building heads and the Dean will participate in this activity to worship the ancestors and get inheritances. At that time, I will introduce you to them personally!” After saying that, Li Xuanqi hesitated a bit. Then he looked up and said sturdily, “Mr. Xu, I have a presumptuous request. Since the Heaven Palace Sect has gone, could you join the Heaven Palace Academy to make it stronger. In the future, let’s revive the Heaven Palace Sect and bring back its glory together!”
His words were quite sincere because the revival of the Heaven Palace Sect was his dream and obsession! If this great aspiration could be realized, his Tao would also be enhanced remarkably. After settling his long-cherished wish, he would reach a higher level! Now, Xu Que’s appearance together with the two souls brought him great hopes!
“Join your Heaven Palace Academy?” At this time, Xu Que smiled and shook his head disdainfully, “Li Xuanqi, do you think your pathetic Heaven Palace Academy is big enough for me? Although my cultivation stage is quite low now, my strength and quality are pretty good. Even the position of a building head in your sect is not attractive enough for me!”
Li Xuanqi said solemnly, “Mr. Xu, you misunderstand me! I know your cultivation stage is a little bit low. But I am inviting you sincerely to act as the Deputy Dean of the Heaven Palace Academy. In the future, when your cultivation stage is high enough, I could even nominate you as the Dean of the Heaven Palace Academy! My only requirement is that you could revive the Heaven Palace Sect together with me!”
“The Deputy Dean?” Xu Que’s eyes widened slightly as he did his best to keep a straight face. Outside the cave, Buttface and Duan Jiude had been totally impressed by Xu Que’s actions. Mo Junchen felt his outlook on the world, his life, and his values had been totally overturned. He was totally shocked and couldn’t believe what he was seeing. Before this, Mo Junchen had despised the shameless measures of Xu Que and his teammates. When he became one of Xu Que’s teammates, he forced himself to accept those dirty tricks. Now, he was totally confused as Xu Que managed to be nominated as the Deputy Dean of the Heaven Palace Academy by Li Xuanqi with his bullsh*t!
“He…he is…he is so awesome!” Mo Junchen came to this conclusion as he thought these things to himself and he started to breathe rapidly as he felt he had realized a remarkable progress in his Tao! Suddenly, Mo Junchen realized there was no right or wrong in this world. Everything was just the result of worldly people’s judgments. As long as one had good will and principle in one’s heart, all kinds of measures could be used to achieve a goal. As long as the goal could be achieved, it was okay that the measures taken were filthy, despicable, and shameless! Our Faction Leader Xu Que has just demonstrated this!
“Guardian Mo, what are you doing? You are breathing rapidly! Is it really necessary to get so excited? This is quite normal for Brother Que!” Buttface, who saw Mo Junchen’s excited expression, said disdainfully at this time.
“No! I just realized I have found a new way to see this world! I…I am so lucky that I could join the Exploding Heavens Faction!” Mo Junchen said happily because he believed he had acquired a new skill of embracing new things! Liu Jingning, who was beside Mo Junchen, really wanted to bury her face in her hands now. She exclaimed to herself, “Oh no, another good person has been led astray by him!”
Seven days passed by in this way. Buttface, Mo Junchen, Duan Jiude, and Liu Jingning were still restrained outside the cave. Xu Que was still being hugged in Guan Chuchu’s arms. Xuanyuan Qishang, who was like a giant, was still standing there to protect them. Li Xuanqi was also standing not far away from them. When he invited Xu Que to act as the Deputy Dean of the Heaven Palace Academy, Xu Que said he needed some time to consider this offer. The worship day of the Heaven Palace Academy was drawing near. Li Xuanqi didn’t want to waste his time going and coming again. So he just stayed there chatting with Xu Que casually about his life in the Heaven Palace Sect. In this way, he was trying to get close to Xu Que. After all, he believed it was worth doing that for the two souls beside Xu Que.
In fact, Xu Que had been overwhelmed with joy for seven days. Nobody would say no to the position of the Heaven Palace Academy’s Deputy Dean! His joyful thoughts included, “Once I become the Deputy Dean…the Divine Being of Taoist Fetus of the Sage Sect will be easy to overcome! The Divine Farmer Clan will be nothing to me! I can meet Jiang Hongyan at will. And I can also announce that she is my woman in front of all the people in this world. In this way, I can drive those who are trying to pursue her crazy! However, as the Act-Tough Saint, I should be arrogant and aloof. I can’t accept Li Xuanqi’s offer immediately. Otherwise, he will look down upon me!”
“Mr. Xu, I really hope the glory of the Heaven Palace Sect can be restored. Now both of us are the only two members of the Heaven Palace Sect in this world. We shall take up the heavy responsibility of reviving it!” Li Xuanqi tried his best to persuade Xu Que.
According to the date mentioned by Li Xuanqi, Xu Que knew the worship ceremony would be held today. The Heaven Palace Academy’s building heads and the Dean would be on their way to this place! Xu Que said, as he sighed seriously, “Alas! Okay! Li Xuanqi, since you have such a great aspiration and you are inviting me sincerely, I will accept your offer mercifully. Anyway, I also miss the Heaven Palace Sect very much. So I have made up my mind to revive the Heaven Palace Sect together with you!”
“Great! Fantastic! Thank you very much, Mr. Xu!” Li Xuanqi said in surprise. When Xu Que accepted his offer, he knew the two powerful souls beside Xu Que would become the Heaven Palace Academy’s most important cornerstone. It would be so easy for the Heaven Palace Academy to rule the Heaven Continent in the future. The revival of the Heaven Palace Sect could also be expected soon!
SWISH! At this time, a strand of light flew toward them from the depths of the cave. Then it landed on the stone wall and was turned to a lump of light. “Hey! The apprentices of the Heaven Palace Academy are coming. Today is the worship day! Good things come in pairs! Mr. Xu, I will open the restrictive spell and let them in. Then I will introduce you to them!” Li Xuanqi said delightedly as he saw the light on the wall. Then he turned around and left directly.
Seeing him from behind, Xu Que couldn’t help but smile and think to himself, “The Heaven Palace Academy…heh heh. If I can’t punish all of you severely before I leave here, I will change my family name to something else! Don’t think about the revival of the Heaven Palace Sect! It is just impossible! In the future, my Exploding Heavens Faction will be the only overlord on the Heaven Continent!
