After some preparations, Xu Que and Situ finally departed for the Holy Ground.
“Hero Zhuge, I think we’d better be careful. It is likely that the Ice Queen will be in the Holy Ground!” Situ said.
She had already said this before.
Not very long ago, the Ice Queen had gone to Snow City and tried to win people to her side by offering them the prospect of very good rewards. She had been rejected, after which she went back to the Snow Mountain. She had not come back down since.
Now, the entirety of the Ice Troops had been destroyed. It was quite strange that she had not yet appeared.
“Maybe it is because she does not know yet what has happened. Or, perhaps she already knows… you and everyone else stay here, I will go myself!” Xu Que said in a low voice.
After all, even the powerful Water Empress had been trapped by the restrictions here. He would have to be careful.
“You want to go in by yourself?” Situ was stunned and she shook her head. “I cannot possibly allow you to! It’s too dangerous inside. I shall go with you!”
“I’d rather you not.”
Since Situ was not that powerful, she would not be much help to him if something dangerous happened. Hence Xu Que preferred the idea of going in alone.
“Hero Zhuge, do not worry about me! It is my duty to rescue the Water Empress!” Situ said firmly.
My God! I am not worrying about you, I am simply afraid that you will be a burden to me…
When he saw that Situ was quite determined, he had no choice but to begrudgingly agree.
He ordered the soldiers to wait outside, and entered the Holy Ground with Situ.
The Holy Ground was actually a cave made from ice that resembled an ancient temple carved deep into the mountain. The entrance was covered by thick snow. Although it looked slightly shabby, it also gave off the aura of a sacred place.
The two stopped at the entrance of the cave. In front of them, there was a huge ice door.
“There are only two ways to open the door. One requires the bloodline, the other requires this jade! I think the Ice Queen must have stolen a jade of this kind from one of the Water Empress’s loyal officials!” Situ said, taking out her own piece o broken jade.
Xu Que also had a piece of jade himself. But since Situ had taken out hers, there was no need for him to do the same.
Situ puressed the jade against the door!
A vortex appeared on the door. With the jade at its center, it began to grow larger and larger.
In the blink of an eye, the ice door became a wall of water.
Then suddenly, the jade was swallowed up and a circular space appeared.
“Hero Zhuge, please get in!” Situ said. She stepped into the space and took hold of the jade once more.
Xu Que followed her. Suddenly, the ice door closed behind them.
In front of them was a long, dark and gloomy path that seemed to have no end.
“Hero Zhuge, we’d better be careful. I have not been here before, so I am not familiar with this place either,” Situ said with a very serious expression.
Xu Que shook his head. Upon entering, he had already ordered the System to scan this place. He had discovered that there were no restrictions here.
“Situ I have already checked and it is quite safe here. Al the restrictions have been destroyed. I guess it was the Ice Queen’s doing,” Xu Que said.
Situ was surprised. “Hero Zhuge, you checked this place already?”
Xu Que nodded and proudly said, “Remember, everyone of the Exploding Heavens Faction is versatile. We can do anything we want. If the thing we want does not exist in this world, we shall create it. If it exists in the world, we shall create something better than it. Our principle is ‘fulfill your dreams with your hands’!”
Situ was stunned. “Amazing! I do envy you for coming from that faction!”
“Do not envy me! From the first moment I saw you, I realized that you were the kind of talent that my faction is in dire need of. You belong with us!” Xu Que said.
Since it was dim around, Situ did not see the look in Xu Que’s eyes and was very surprised by his words. She then said, “I? I am a talent?”
“You absolutely are! Your soldiers are so loyal and courageous! You are so talented and good-looking, you are indeed a rare talent! Think about my proposal. I can give you an interview if you want,” Xu Que said.
Situ laughed. “Thank you for your compliments! But as I am the general of the army of the Snow City, I cannot join you at this moment!”
“Well, I can just ask the Water Empress to sack you,” Xu Que said.
“Please don’t!” Situ was startled.
“It’s fine, I don’t think the Water Empress would mind. Don’t worry, she would definitely let you go!”
“It’s just… I…”
“Situ, I have said that we are like a family. There is no need to thank me for this.”
“No, it’s not like that. Listen to me…”
“Let’s continue onwards for now. I think there is nothing more to say on this subject,” Xu Que said.
Situ was speechless…
When did I say that I did not want to be the general of the army of the Snow City? When did I say that I wanted to join your faction? I have worked so hard to become general, and you are going to ask the Water Empress to sack me? And you want me to thank you for doing this?
Situ was so upset that she almost wanted to cry!
Xu Que had already walked away and had not given her the chance to explain.
When she caught up with him, she found Xu Que standing still at the end of the path.
In front of them was a huge open field shrouded in the light of a restrictive enchantment.
There was only a cushion in the center of the space.
“What is that?” Situ asked. Her eyes found a pile of broken mirror shards on the ground. From the look of the broken pieces, it was easy to tell that it had been shattered not very long ago.
“How strange. Who broke such a precious bronze mirror?” Situ asked in surprise.
Xu Que did not reply.
He stood still and looked at the cushion.
On the ground, a few words had been left for him!
