Chapter 258: Treasure Cove

As soon as the cultivators shouted out, the entire wall came crumbling down and a thick layer of dust floated in the air.
The restrictive spell screen which ran high up into the air started forming numerous cracks as spiritual energy leaked out from within. Several seconds later, the entire spell vanished after completely draining its energy.
Everyone turned to look down at the large gaping hole in the ground and were greatly stunned that they took a long time to recover their senses.
The powers of ten excavators is truly something to behold!
The spells conjured by the founding Fire Emperor along with his powerful cultivators had just been destroyed so easily. This Heavenly Explosion Faction is truly too scary!
However, the spells didn’t intimidate Xu Que in the least. He never felt like they were impossible to break through. After all, these spells were created with the assumption that no cultivator would be given so much time to dig through, for the forces of the Imperial Guards would surely overwhelm a cultivator even before he could start digging.
However, the founding Fire Emperor would never have anticipated that Xu Que would possess a powerful machine such as this!
And the other cultivators who Xu Que had gathered earlier were all unusually elated. Most of them had low cultivation levels and one of them was only at the Qi Refining Stage. They had only planned to come around to witness the exciting scenes and did not expect to be called upon.
Getting a chance to operate this immense and awe inspiring excavator is such a glorious opportunity that none of them would ever pass up!
“Kuang kuang kuang!”
Loud sounds could be heard from the excavators and the powerful arms continued digging into the ground. These low levelled cultivators had all became immensely courageous and brave after the introduction of the excavators.
Because those were damned terrifying Godly Weapons!
Even the Qi Refining Stage cultivator was able to destroy the strongest spell wall within the Fire Emperor’s palace and he didn’t even have to use a single ounce of spiritual energy.
“Hey, hey, hey… Alright! That’s enough! The spell has already been broken. Why are you still playing around? There’s no need to break down the walls over there!”
After leading the entire group of cultivators using the excavators to demolish the spell wall, he noticed that several cultivators had trailed off behind and started to destroy the other walls of the palace. It seemed like these kids were addicted to the thrill of ploughing through walls. They wouldn’t even let off the few eunuchs who remained behind as they drove the machine straight into those eunuchs. They were so much more excited over the excavator than he was, and more vicious too!
“Quick, quick, quick! All of you, come back now! You should fight with your blades as ferocious as you’ve been while on the excavator! I’m talking about you over there, that Qi Refining Stage kid! Look how you’re operating the excavator with such ferocity. You’re at such a low cultivation level but you’re chasing an Original Infant Stage eunuch. It’s fun to act tough, huh?”
As soon as the cultivator saw these eunuchs running amok in all direction in fear, Xu Que was elated as he laughed out loud. He then made a mental note to himself that he must really open a Lanxiang Vocational Institute one day.
“Lord Prince Consort, have mercy!”
“Please use the teleportation device, Lord Prince Consort!”
In the midst of all the dust and soil, the few remaining eunuchs all crawled and clamored towards Xu Que as they fell to their knees and begged for their lives.
The Fire Emperor had instructed them to destroy the teleportation device and they had acknowledged his order.
However, in actual fact, they didn’t dare to destroy it.
After the few exchanges and battles between the Fire Emperor and Xu Que, the eunuchs themselves had witnessed how Xu Que had defeated him almost effortlessly. Without realizing it, their fear of the the Fire Emperor had dropped tremendously and they were clearly more afraid of Xu Que now!
As soon as the Fire Emperor departed, the fear which these eunuchs had of Xu Que far surpassed the fear of their own monarch.
Hence, they were willing to defy the Fire Emperor’s orders and didn’t dare to destroy the teleportation device. They were all extremely afraid of being the target of Xu Que’s vengeance. Hence, all of them fell to their knees and begged.
Xu Que was elated by this as well, since this would help him to save act tough points now that he didn’t have to buy anything else.
As for spiritual stones, he had more than enough on him. After killing those Original Infant and Infant Transformation cultivators, he had acquired many storage rings. Apart from the usual low grade pills and spell manuals, there were many spirit stones as well.
Over these few months, Xu Que had already acquired an entire mound of spirit stones. It can even be said that if these spirit stones were piled up, they would be as high as the mountains.
Hence, requiring a few high grade spirit stones wasn’t a problem at all.
“At least you’re smart. If you had really destroyed the teleportation device, I will promise to find your castrated penises and whip them in front of you. Now, get out of my way!” Xu Que’s lips curled as he walked past them.
The Water Empress had alighted from the excavator. She then looked at the place where the spell wall stood before. Her eyes then fell onto the building right where the teleportation device was.
“This place is the treasure cove of the Fire Nation’s Imperial family!” The Water Empress spoke into Xu Que’s mind as though she was reminding him of this important fact.
With the system on him, he wasn’t particularly interested in these earthly treasures. However, after thinking about how there could be many more powerful spell manuals and high quality weapons, he stopped hesitating. He stepped towards the building and kicked the door open.
Since the spell wall had been demolished, there wasn’t any other obstacles preventing them from gaining entry into the building.
After Xu Que had kicked down the door, he peered in and saw that the entire building was filled with treasures and everyone outside also had a good look inside.
All the cultivators around opened their eyes wide in disbelief.
“My god! Is this… the fabled treasure cove of the Imperial family?”
“There are so many different treasures all around.”
“Look! There’s the Gold Dragon Blade over there. Wasn’t this a creation of a Six Star Blacksmith a hundred years ago? The weapon is of the Six Star grade and has been hiding here all along!”
“And look at that Spirit Light Armor! That’s also a Six Star grade body armor!”
“Celestial Rod? Isn’t that the treasure lost to the Wood Nation many years ago? Why is that here too?”
“Ai, hang on a second. Look at that on the shelf. Isn’t that the legendary Yin Yang Pearl?”
“Fuck me! It really is! The pearl can only be found in the shared domains between the Water and Fire Nation. It is so rare that only a single pearl forms after every thousand years!”
“And there are five of these pearls. Does it mean that these treasures had been taken by the Fire Nation for five consecutive millenniums?”
“Didn’t the Water Nation realize this?”
The crowd had found some interesting and powerful artefacts. However, the five pearls had caused the biggest reaction as everyone shot glances at the Water Empress.
The Water Empress’ eyes gleamed in the light as her face revealed a serene expression as though she was deep in thought.
“Is this item powerful?” Xu Que communicated with her using his thoughts.
The Water Empress looked at him and replied, “It’s a precious and rare item but… It doesn’t have much use.”
“Ah? Why?” Xu Que straightened up and looked somewhat wary.
The Water Empress then replied, “Fire and Water can never mix. But this item is very strange as it contained both the Fire and Water elements together within. In doing so, it was able to create an energy of both the Yin and Yang together. Hence, this is one of the most mystical items which resulted from natural activities, allowing two conflicting elements to exist.”
“Then why did you say that it doesn’t have much use?”
“Because within the entire cultivation realm, there isn’t a single spell capable of fusing both the Yin and Yang like this pearl. Even after I’ve travelled outside the domains of the five nations, I’ve never heard of anyone being able to cultivate both the Yin and Yang together. Hence, this item, if used as a weapon, could only provide a bit of usefulness.”
Yin and Yang together?
As soon as Xu Que heard this, he was taken aback!
There are no spells in this realm, within and outside the five nations, which fuses both Yin and Yang?
Fuck me! Then isn’t the entire realm too weak? Without requiring much effort, I can conjure several spells which embodies both these energies!
“So, you mean to say that if there was such a spell which could fuse both Yin and Yang, this item would be very useful?” Xu Que’s eyes sparkled.
The Water Empress was astonished by this question as she looked at Xu Que and nodded her head without speaking.
However, an element of surprise took over her as she realized that Xu Que’s expression was rather strange.
Could it be… that he has a skill which embodies both Yin and Yang energies?
That’s impossible! Although there were such spells which existed in the past, it has long been lost to cultivators. How could he possibly have such spells?
