Xu Que was somewhat startled by that.
From what the Black Monkey King had said, this place had initially been intended to be in isolation…
“Eh? Five Elements Seal?” Buttface chimed in with a murmur. Then he suddenly had a change in expression and exclaimed, “The Five Elements Seal… isn’t this the Five Elements Mountain stated in the ancient records? Has your ancestor been suppressed for five million years?”
When Xu Que heard that, he stood rooted to the ground.
The creature that is suppressed under the Five Elements Mountain is the ancestor of this group of black monkeys? So that creature’s a monkey too?
Holy sh*t, could there really be such a coincidence?
Suddenly, a deafening, beast-like roar reverberated throughout the entire forest and mountain!
All the monkeys looked grim and the Black Monkey King furrowed his brows. The Black Monkey King shot a cold glance at Xu Que and Buttface.
“Hmph, the Elders of the clan are calling us back. Count yourselves lucky that we are letting you off now!”
Immediately after that, the Black Monkey King turned into a black shadow and with a flash, he was already far away into the distance! The rest of the monkeys followed suit. Countless numbers of black shadows dashed through the forest like spirits, following their Black Monkey King deep into the mountains.
“Wait up! Is your ancestor called Sun Wu Kong?” Xu Que shouted hurriedly. He was in shock but he still wanted to catch up and get an answer from them.
At that instant, an unusually loud and muffled sound echoed about suddenly, as if thunder had clapped right beside their ears!
Xu Que’s body froze for an instant and he felt like he had come into contact with an invisible force. He felt that he had knocked against some cotton-like barrier and his body rebounded abruptly.
The next moment, the scene before him suddenly blurred. It was as if ink had dripped onto a piece of white paper and was starting to spread and get all cloudy!
A sound was heard and in the blink of an eye, the black shadows of the black monkeys, together with the forest and mountain before them, disappeared without a trace.
What was before them now, was a scene of another, unfamiliar slice of mountainous terrain!
“Woah…” Xu Que stared at the scene in disbelief.
What just happened really felt like a mirage…
But the monkeys just now had been real. They couldn’t have been imaginary… yet they had vanished just like that!
“This deity now understands that the incidents and events recorded in the ancient book of records are true!” Buttface exclaimed. He looked aghast and walked over to Xu Que.
“What did the ancient book of records say? Tell me quick!” Xu Que asked Buttface as he hurriedly turned around.
He couldn’t contain his curiosity and astonishment. Five million years ago, the Five Elements Mountain had suppressed the ancestor of a group of monkeys. Wasn’t this what the Monkey King, Sun Wu Kong, had experienced?
Previously Buttface had once mentioned that the Five Nations were actually acting as the Five Elements Mountain, and that a creature was suppressed beneath the Five Elements Mountain.
Back then, Xu Que had thought that maybe it was just a coincidence and had not felt particularly bothered.
However, the situation was different now. The black monkey had actually said that their ancestor was trapped under the mountain. This was too shocking for Xu Que.
“Back in earlier days, this deity read widely. When I read the tattered ancient book of records, it seemed the records were a load of bullsh*t. This deity has forgotten much of it. But there is something like this mentioned in there,” said Buttface, swaying his head. “Apparently, when the Five Elements Mountain suppressed that creature, it also suppressed its ancestral land. That forest we were in earlier, maybe that’s really their ancestral land.”
Xu Que raised an eyebrow upon hearing that. Even the ancestral land was suppressed? The immortal who did that must be really powerful! he thought.
“Oh yes!” Buttface suddenly exclaimed and his eyes lit up in excitement. “This deity has recalled that their ancestral land has an interesting name… uh…Fresh Fruit Mountain! That’s such a ridiculous claim though, as when this deity went inside, there wasn’t any fruit at all!”
Xu Que nearly coughed out a mouthful of blood.
Fresh Fruit Mountain?
What f*cking fresh fruit?!
Could this f*cking be the Flower Fruit Mountain?
Xu Que could not maintain a calm composure now. “Are you sure you don’t mean the Flower Fruit Mountain?” he asked Buttface, looking intently at him.
Sun Wu Kong and Flower Fruit Mountain… these words meant a lot to the Chinese.
But to those in the Cultivation World, they were nothing special.
Buttface contemplated for a while then suddenly slapped his head. “No, it should be Bear Fruit Mountain!” said Buttface affirmatively.
Xu Que’s mouth twitched. Bear your f*cking fruit! he cussed in his head!
He was certain that he could not rely on Buttface’s impaired memory.
Basically, he could guess from what Buttface had seen in the ancient records that the Five Elements Mountain had likely suppressed a monkey, and the name of the ancestral land was likely Flower Fruit Mountain!
It was a pity that the group of black monkeys had disappeared and was nowhere to be found. No matter how curious he was, there was no way to find out more now.
“Let’s leave it aside for now and hurry to the Water Nation first. Let’s see if the Water Empress has an ancient book from five million years ago!”
Xu Que shook his head and decided that the most important task on hand was getting to the Water Nation fast.
He pulled out the compass and identified the correct direction to go to the Water Nation. Boom! In the next moment, he activated his black flaming wings.
Buttface immediately shouted in excitement. “666, boy, quick, teach this skill art to this deity, 666!!”
Xu Que picked Buttface right up by the collar and extended his wings, instantly soaring into the sky.
“Owww… Boy, let go! This deity doesn’t like this pose!”
Both of them continued their journey by flying and Buttface kept shouting at the top of his voice.
Xu Que ignored his cries. His eyes were fixated on the landscape below.
He needed to first ascertain how far away the Water Nation was before deciding if he should engrave the rune words for a teleportation enchantment. After all, that would take him four to five days.
This situation was of utmost urgency; unless it was absolutely necessary, he did not want to waste any more time.
Fortunately, after flying through a few mountains, Xu Que finally sensed faint plumes of water spiritual Qi in the air. That meant the Water Nation was near.
He was currently positioned on basically the boundary of the two nations!
Xu Que immediately sped on ahead, ignoring the amount of consumption of his True Core Strength with this decision. He was not worried as he could use the automatic replenishing function available in System. He had never run out of True Core Strength!
Soon enough, after flying for four hours, Xu Que’s eyes suddenly narrowed into a thin line.
The distant scenery was very different. The never-ending mountainous regions were now covered in thick snow. Everything seemed white.
Between the mountains, Xu Que could make out an ancient city within!
“Eh? Boy, look! There’s a city ahead! Ah, this deity is fatigued and needs to rest for several days before continuing the journey!”
Buttface spoke in a weak and feeble tone. He pretended to be worn out as if he was dying when he noticed the city ahead.
But in no time, Buttface’s expression changed abruptly.
“Wait, that city is in the midst of a battle right now? D*mn, large numbers of troops are killing each other! Boy, don’t go there. This deity now feels energized and refreshed. Let’s continue our journey!”
“If you don’t shut your mouth, I’ll strangle you for 20 hours!”
Xu Que gave Buttface a warning glare. His flaming wings gave a flap and dashed towards the ancient city.
Outside the city, a war had broken out between two opposing sides. There were at least tens of thousands of people involved in the war, making it a magnificent battle scene.
But what surprised Xu Que was that the human cultivators were the ones battling each other. One side persevered in defending their city bravely while the other had a mighty amount of powerful troops. They were executing their skill arts and blasting them at the city in a frenzied manner, and it seemed that they had the upper hand!
Xu Que’s eyes lit up in interest.
This was because the cultivators inside the city were all using water elemental skill arts, and a water dragon that had been conjured using water spiritual Qi was hovering around the city. This could mean that the city belonged to the Water Nation!
However, the troops that had besieged the city had armor made of ice, and their skill arts seemed to be blend with both water and ice as well. They were very powerful!
Xu Que started to wonder why there were so many cultivators using the ice element and how it had even given rise to a civil war. It seemed like the Water Empress’s ability to govern the country could be rather lacking!
He spread his wings and quickly flew towards the city.
Meanwhile, outside the city, there was a middle-aged man who was believed to be the general of the ice troops. He wore armor of ice and rode on an ice horse.
“Hai Tang, hurry up and open the city gates to surrender!” shouted the general, loud and clear. “What’s left of the Water Nation is only this Snow City. The Water Empress can do nothing to salvage the situation now. Be obstinate no longer! Quick! Open the city gates and surrender! Pledge your allegiance to the Ice Queen and you’ll keep your status and wealth!”
Xu Que was thunderstruck by what he heard!
The Water Empress can do nothing to salvage the situation now? What has happened?
The Water Empress has been dethroned? Who the hell is the Ice Queen?
F*ck, you dare to touch my Water Empress! You’re asking to die!
Xu Que raised an eyebrow.
In an instant, he turned into a dark shadow and charged towards the ancient city!
