Chapter 384: Boy, Help!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Building an inter-country teleportation device required much more time than a normal teleportation device.
In addition, as this teleportation device had been built in a hurry, it was consuming quite a lot of the best-grade spirit stones.,, but its speed could not yet compare to the engraved teleportation spell runes that Xu Que had used back in the Fire Nation!
During the teleportation, both Xu Que and Buttface were buffeted by violent, strong winds. Their vision was blurred and they somewhat felt as if they were seeing scenes in reverse, as though they had entered a time travel portal instead.
“F*ck, is this really a proper teleportation device?” cursed Buttface, who had both fore limbs covering his head.
Xu Que shook his head. This teleportation device was indeed hastily made.
Nonetheless he also knew that this was already considered a magnificent teleportation device within the five nations. After all, to be able to teleport to another nation requires an immense number of spirit stones. The Metal Emperor had been very generous in this aspect.
“If this deity’s actual prowess were not sealed, I would create a giant teleportation device that would let us arrive in the Water Nation in the bat of an eyelid!” boasted Buttface loudly.
Xu Que gave him a glance of contempt and sneered, “if I engraved the rune words for the teleportation device myself, I would be able to arrive in Water Nation instantly as well!”
What Xu Que had claimed was the truth. When he had been inside the Imperial Tombs of the Fire Nation, he had copied the rune engravings through the System. However, if he were to have engraved the rune words himself, he would have needed at least four to five days to complete it. He would rather go for something much faster.
However, Buttface did not believe his words at all. He scorned him with a snort. “This deity only needs to wave my paw and we’d arrive in the Water Nation!”
With that, Buttface even pretended to wave his paw as demonstration!
Xu Que immediately mocked him. “Damn it, you…”
Before Xu Que could finish cursing, a thunderous sound was heard from the teleportation device! Xu Que and Buttface were startled and before they had time to respond, both of them were abruptly thrown into the air.
The spirit stones on the teleportation device had unexpectedly burst. Large pieces of spirit stone had started to give way and crumble, turning into powder that dissipated in the wind.
Xu Que’s eyes stared in disbelief; his body was now being wildly pulled by the wild, tearing force of the void, away from the teleportation device. He had nothing to hold on to.
Damn, it’s a f*cking piece-of-sh*t project!
Buttface howled, his eyes wide-open in shock as he floated past Xu Que in mid-air!
The breaking down of the teleportation device during teleportation was highly dangerous. They could be torn to shreds at any minute. They might even fall into a mysterious, unknown land.
No matter how hard Xu Que tried, he was unable to shake off the pull of the void.
Subconsciously, he tried to call System but the vast, surrounding energy of the void enveloped him and Buttface. Both of them were thrown out of the indistinct space!
A loud crash sounded. Xu Que felt the wind howling past his ears as well as Buttface’s piteous cries.
With a swish, Xu Que saw his surroundings suddenly regain their original brightness. A stretch of deserted mountains appeared underneath him. His body was still in free fall.
Gradually everything had calmed down!
Xu Que took a deep breath and executed Three Thousand Volts Lightning. Lightning appeared beneath his legs and he instantly gained control of the speed of his descent, taking him flying rapidly towards a tall mountain not too far away.
He landed on the ground steadily, followed by a muffled bang from Buttface as he fell onto the ground, splashing into a mud puddle.
“Owww… oww, oww, oww, ouch!” Buttface lifted his head and screamed miserably. But, he had not been hurt at all.
The moment Xu Que saw him, he became enraged. Just now before the teleportation device went haywire, Buttface had been demonstrating how he could wave his paw and arrive in Water Nation instantly by doing so.
But in the end, the moment right after he waved, the teleportation device had started to break down.
Xu Que became more infuriated as he thought about it. He dashed towards Buttface, pinned his head firmly in the mud puddle and gave him a slap on his head.
“F*ck, why did you have to wave your paw? Why did you wave your paw!”
“Owww, what has this f*cking got to do with this deity?”
“You wave that paw again… oh, just try wave it again!”
“Owww, it’s really none of my business! It’s the teleportation device! It’s too trashy…”
Piak! Piak! Piak!
“Ahhh! Oww, oww, ouch…”
The whole mountain was filled with Buttface’s tragic cries as they echoed around the area…
A moment later, Xu Que stopped his actions.
He stood at the top of the mountain and surveyed the area with a gloomy face.
The surrounding area was uninhabited and filled only with remote mountains. In fact, everything around them, even the land stretching faraway towards the horizon, was covered in endless mountainous areas…
The air had a faint hum of spiritual Qi of the metal element. Apparently, both of them were still in the Metal Nation, at the borders. They had not completely left the Metal Nation!
“Hurry up, get up and lead the way. Darn, in this remote place, it’s impossible for me to even barbecue some chicken wings to eat!” Xu Que kicked Buttface forcefully, wanting him to hurry up.
Buttface had rolled away agilely from Xu Que’s kick, and got up with an aggrieved expression. He snapped, “boy, the breakdown of the teleportation device has nothing to do with me at all. Why did you hit me?”
“I’m in a bad mood. Why can’t I hit you to vent my anger?” Xu Que said seriously in a deep voice.
As a matter of fact, what had happened to them earlier was an accident that could not have been caused by Buttface. They had simply been unlucky.
“If you want to vent your anger, you can hit the trees. Why did you hit me?” said a bitter Buttface.
Xu Que gave a glance at him and said curtly, “you’re tough enough!”
“F*ck!” Buttface instantly cursed, wanting to go up to Xu Que and battle it out with him.
But he seemed to have thought of the dog collar on his neck, and quickly dismissed that thought.
“All right, quickly lead the way. The Empress of the Water Nation is still waiting for me!” said Xu Que.
Buttface stared at Xu Que. “Why does this deity has to lead the way?”
“Is it not the dog’s responsibility to lead the way?”
“Boy, you’re pushing things too far… you’re a big wolf bully!”
“So what if I bully you? Are you not happy? Fight me…”
“This deity will choose to submit!”
Xu Que gave Buttface a disdainful look and decided to remain silent. He quickly obtained a compass and started to ascertain the directions.
The Water Nation was south of the Metal Nation. This was general knowledge, so figuring that out was not a difficult task.
But the problem was, Xu Que did not know how far away the Water Nation was from his current location. He hesitated… perhaps he should just fly there or engrave rune words to make a small teleportation spell.
“Buttface, I’ll give you a mission. Go grab a local to find out more information!” This time, Xu Que gave a light kick to Buttface who was lying beside him.
Buttface replied listlessly, “forget it, this is such a remote place, how could there be human here! We should take things as they come, rest for a few days, get in shape then go on our journey. If I can have some stinky tofu, that would be even more wonderful!”
“I think you need some strangling instead!” Xu Que narrowed his eyes and acted as if he would chant the spell anytime.
“No, no, no, I’ll go now.”
Buttface jumped in fright and with a swish, he dashed into the forest of the mountain.
Xu Que touched his chin, and pondered as he looked up at the sky.
He was suspicious of the fact that the teleportation device had failed halfway.
According to reason, the Metal Emperor and the others could not have been the ones to do such a thing, as they didn’t have the guts. There was no hatred or enmity between them.
Suddenly, a miserable cry from Buttface was heard from within the forest.
“Boy, help! There’s demons here…”
