Chapter 226: What The Hell Do You Want?
Translator: Translation Nation Editor: Translation Nation
The Moving Mountains Sect elder and disciples were all stumped.
Heavenly Explosion Faction’s Lan Xiang, Zhang Qi Ling, nicknamed Oil Bottle?
They had never heard anything about this person’s nickname. But they knew that after today, this person’s nickname within the circle of grave robbers would be extremely renowned!
After all, forcing entry into the Imperial Tombs had never been succeeded by anyone in history!
Many grave robbers would get stuck within the first outermost spell and end up dying there since they couldn’t leave.
It could even be said that nobody had ever touched the concrete walls of the tombs before.
And now, this black robed youth managed to dig through the earth and even broke the walls of the tombs before jumping in so bravely. Just thinking of this was enough to raise hairs.
Hence, this old man started to feel that after today, when word gets out, Zhang Qi Ling from Heavenly Explosion Faction would be very popular.
“That big brother is so powerful!” Several of the disciples started to let out sighs of admiration.
The eyes of the female disciples were fixated on that mysterious hole within the ground. They started to recall how that big brother had leapt into it without much hesitation and their hearts were unable to stop hammering for a long time.
After all, Xu Que looked extremely cool while doing that.
At the same time, within the Imperial Palace…
Everything was wrecked and in utter chaos. The Imperial Palace had almost been reduced to ruins, with most of it leaving nothing more than mere rocks and debris. Many other places around the palace had been reduced to similar fates.
This was especially after the Fire Emperor accidentally ate those pieces of shits. He was so enraged that his anger was scary to behold. He had vented his anger out on many other buildings around him. After crossing over to the Void Refining Stage, he almost nearly wrecked his entire palace till there was nothing left standing.
The Sky Incense Valley elder knew that he had made a mistake and was afraid to the Fire Emperor’s fury. He thus took his disciples and fled as soon as he knew that the wrath was approaching.
As for the other great sects, they were so astounded that they had left as well. Some other busybodies within the city had ran all the way to the great lake to watch the scene unfold. It was then that they realized it was true. A protective spell had been placed all around the lake! They were astounded.
Tang Liu Feng had taken this opportunity to flee as well. He was still loyal to Xu Que and played his part by spreading the tales of the Emperor to as many people as he could. These tales included how the Emperor had harmed the Prince Consort and was even made a cuckold. There was even the important scene of how he was defeated by the Prince Consort and at last, was convinced to eat shit.
The Imperial City was completely shocked as the news spread like wildfire across the entire nation.
The Flaming Sun Princess and Zi Xuan had been standing outside the throne room for a long time, unable to regain their senses.
After several breaths, Zi Xuan finally sighed out, “Princess, was it truly alright for us to give him the map? He would definitely head for the Imperial Tombs now. What if the Imperial Tombs will be destroyed as well?”
“That’s impossible!” The Flaming Sun Princess shook her head, her expression was as cold as ice. “I underestimated him from the start and never imagined that his powers would be stronger than fathers. He even managed to win over Emperor father several times. But what can he do at the Imperial Tombs? Once he enters, he wouldn’t ever be able to come out for all eternity.”
Zi Xuan was still worried, “But… He’s managed to create so many miracles and did the impossible on numerous occasions.”
“This is one miracle he will never be able to accomplish. My Emperor Grandfather once told me that long ago, one of our ancestors of the Form Synthesis Stage knew that his life was soon ending. He wasn’t willing to spend all eternity within the Imperial Tombs and thus decided to enter the Tombs prematurely to retrieve some treasures to prolong his lifespan. However, he never managed to step out. How strong can Xu Que be? He can’t even match up to a Void Refining Stager, much less a Form Synthesis Stager.” The Flaming Sun Princess sounded very certain.
“Besides, even if he enters the Imperial Tombs, he wouldn’t be able to get near the source of the Imperial Qi- the Dragon Veins. That’s because… It’s no longer within the Imperial Tombs.”
“What?” Zi Xuan heard this and was astounded. How was this possible?
If there wasn’t any Dragon Veins, where did the Imperial Qi which the Fire Emperor drew out come from?
“Actually, that isn’t really a secret anymore. Several hundred years ago, our ancestors sank in all the way down to the core of the earth. The Dragon Veins are now floating in molten lava in the center of the planet. Apart from anyone with the blood of the Imperial Family who would be able to draw on it, nobody would ever be able to seek it out! Hence, even if Xu Que managed to gain entry into the Imperial Tombs, he wouldn’t be able to come out and wouldn’t be able to destroy the source of Imperial Qi. That’s why I willingly allowed you to give him the Fire Nation’s Imperial Tombs map!”
As soon as the Flaming Sun Princess said this, she exhaled deeply before speaking, “Now, I wish that he would fall into our trap and enter the Imperial Tombs. All this mess can finally be put to a halt! With his lowly status, it would be an honor for him to die within the Imperial Tombs!”
“…” Zi Xuan bit her lips and fell into silence.
She had this nagging feeling that Xu Que wouldn’t just disappear so easily.
It was hard to say, but one day, he could appear again and start killing everyone who had wronged him.
Meanwhile, within the eastern end of the Imperial Tombs…
Xu Que had no idea how long he had been in the free fall but he hadn’t landed yet.
His body was still in descent. It was clear that this Imperial Tomb was extremely huge.
As soon as he entered within the Imperial Tombs, the restriction on spells had vanished and he could start conjuring spells.
Without a moment’s hesitation, Xu Que conjured the Lightning Haste spell, causing a pair of lightning bolts to form at his heels. He then increased his speed as he continued going downwards.
Before long, his feet finally touched ground and he stopped falling. He concluded that he was probably within the center of the Imperial Tombs.
Everything around him was dark but it wasn’t enough to completely obscure his vision.
After scanning his surroundings, Xu Que could be sure that he was standing within a very spacious tomb.
He was surrounded by four solid walls, with a door on one side of the walls. Apart from this, there was nothing else around him.
Xu Que frowned. This wasn’t in the most desirable situation to find himself in.
He retrieved the maps of the Imperial Tombs and opened it.
He saw that there were many confusing lines all across the maps and fell deep in thought.
All of a sudden, Xu Que felt something hot within his robes as though something was struggling to get out. Heat and light was emanating out from beneath, shining through the layers of his clothes.
Xu Que paused before he reached his hand into his robes and pulled it out.
When he took it out, he realized that it was a piece of black jade tile with strange and complex inscriptions across. There was even a unicorn inscribed onto this tile and was emitting off a mysterious scent along with a powerful aura.
But this piece of jade tile…
Xu Que frowned, trying to recall when he had obtained this. He then realized that he acquired this while he was still out in the borderlands.
Before killing the members of the Blood River Sect, a strange old man had come to eat his delicious chicken wings. After quarreling with him, the old man finally gave him this piece of jade tile.
That old man’s cultivation level wasn’t low at all. In fact, he was so powerful that Xu Que couldn’t tell his level then. However, he was certain that it was more powerful than the Infant Transformation. That was why he only just scolded him and didn’t resort to fighting.
If not, with how that old man was acting so strangely, Xu Que would probably have given him a severe beating.
Right before they parted ways, the old man gave him this tile.
(T/N: Chapter 44 if anyone wishes to re-read the chapter!)
Xu Que didn’t pay it much attention then. After all, this jade tile didn’t look special at all. However, he never expected that the jade tile would be activated as soon as he had entered this ancient Imperial Tomb. The jade tile was emitting bright light now and was starting to get hotter. It even gave off a powerful aura as it radiated across the entire tomb.
“That’s strange. What on earth is this thing?” Xu Que thought to himself before tapping it once, trying to think as hard as he could.
Right at this point, behind a door which led to complete darkness, came a loud sound which sounded like thousands of horses charging in this direction.
Xu Que jumped up in shock as he glared into the distance and held his ground. He conjured a Bone Freezing Flame within his palms in anticipation and waited.
All of a sudden, several shadows shot past the door. It was hard to see their form and it’s impossible to tell what their cultivation levels were.
An angry and irritable voice sounded in the distance.
“Damn it, you’re here again? Speak clearly now, what the hell do you want?”
