Xu Que was startled.
It is about the Five Elements Mountain?
“There are too many people here! Save me some embarrassment, I will tell you about it later in the day.”
Buttface was not afraid of the arrows—he was afraid that Xu Que would shrink the collar around his neck by reading some magic inscriptions.
Xu Que sensed that Buttface was not telling lies. So he nodded and replied, “Then I will let you go for the sake of the people in this city.”
Buttface said, “Thanks!”
No one knew that the Five Elements Mountain was actually made up of the Five Nations, and no one was interested in it. So everyone continued to enjoy themselves at the party.
When the party was over, Xu Que selected three thousand young and strong soldiers and began to make the preparations for tomorrow morning’s departures.
Then he grabbed Buttface and headed to the castle residence.
Earlier, Situ had cleared a room for him. He went inside and threw Buttface on the ground. He closed the door and temporarily set up an array in case someone eavesdropped.
“Spit it out! What is the news about the Five Elements Mountain?” Xu Que said.
He had been wanting to know for a while what the legendary Great Sage had to do with the Five Elements Mountain. In the past, he had even asked the System to tell him about this, but the System had refused with the excuse that his level was too low.
That had only made him more curious about it.
Buttface slowly sat up and said, “Who are you, really? Why are you so interested in the Five Elements Mountain?”
“It’s none of your business. Are you going to say it or not?” Xu Que was getting angry. He was about to read the magic inscription to shrink the collar around Buttface’s neck.
Seeing this, Buttface hurriedly said, “When I went to find help, I was attacked by a huge ancient tree. I was knocked out, but when I woke up, I recalled something to do with the Five Elements Mountain.”
“Then what?” Xu Que said impatiently.
He knew that he could not totally believe what Buttface had said. As for the ancient tree, it had to be a lie. He had likely just bumped into a tree by accident.
“There is sextuple seal in the Five Elements Mountain. Among them, five seals stand for the Dragon Veins of the Five Nations. Once a seal is opened, the effect of the seals as a whole will decrease. Now, you have already opened the Dragon Vein of Fire, and I opened the Dragon Vein of Metal, and someone called De or something opened the Dragon Veins of Wood and Earth. Now only the Dragon Vein of Water is still intact. If it is opened, something terrible will happen!” Buttface said.
When he said ‘something terrible’, his eyes glowed. Clearly, he liked to make mischief.
Xu Que said in a low voice, “The five Dragon Veins are the five seals. I recall that the black monkey I met earlier said that the effect of the seal is decreasing… and that is why their Zudi appeared at the border of Metal Nation. By the way, what is the last seal?”
“The last seal, well, it has not been recorded in detail in the ancient book. Someone said that it might be mysteriously located at the center of the Five Nations… someone also said that a certain restriction should be broken first. There is also a hilarious saying about this—but, well, I will just leave it.”
“Say it!” Xu Que threatened.
Buttface said, “Someone once said that when the five Dragon Veins are all broken, the last Dragon Vein would be revealed if the rune at the top of the Five Elements Mountain is torn apart. How funny this is! I think the two sayings mentioned earlier sound more plausible.”
“Shut up!” Xu Que said angrily.
In his view, the last saying sounded the most plausible.
In the fairytale, the Great Sage had been rescued when the Tang monk tore the rune off the Wuzhi Mountain.
There were so many different sayings about the Five Elements Mountain. Xu Que still thought there was a big chance that the Great Sage might be under the Five Elements Mountain.
“I have said what I wanted to say. I need to sleep now, please get out!” Buttface yawned.
Xu Que seized him and was about to throw him outside.
“What are you going to do with me? Let me go! You are hurting me!”
Xu Que closed the door and walked to the end of his bed, not caring that Buttface was shouting outside.
After a while, he suddenly smiled and said, “The Five Elements Mountain is really an interesting place.”
It was getting very late. Xu Que was still awake. He summoned his System and started to make preparations for tomorrow’s departures.
His Acting Tough Points had reached forty thousand. He wanted to make good use of them, since taking back the lost cities would please the Water Empress.
Then he bought many items from the System.
“This object is really good! This is good too! Haha, with the help of this object, we will easily win back the Water Nation in five days.”
The next morning, Xu Que opened the door.
Buttface was sleeping next to the doorstep. Xu Que did not even look at him and stepped on him.
Buttface woke up and was about to curse. When he saw Xu Que, he immediately shut up and followed him quickly.
When they arrived at the gate of the city, the three thousand strong soldiers were already there waiting for them.
They all looked very refreshed and energetic.Obviously, Situ had trained them well.
Knowing that Xu Que was their leader, they all felt very happy.
Situ and some other people were seeing them off.
When they saw Xu Que and Buffface walking towards them, they all saluted.
Situ nodded to Xu Que, signalling that everything had been prepared.
No food, no advanced equipment, no medicines—just three thousand soldiers.
Situ knew that it would be impossible for Xu Que to take one city back each day. She knew that he was not that experienced in the battlefield. Maybe after this attempt, he would be able to learn some lessons about battle.
Xu Que did not care about this at all. He had enough food and medicine in his storage.
“Good! We haven’t got much time, so let’s start now… but I want to say something first. If we fail to take one city back in a day, we will immediately come back to the Snow City. I have given my word to Situ.”
In fact, they all knew that they would not be able to take one city back in a day. It would already take them around a day to arrive at the Teleportation Device. They would at most have a warm-up fight with their enemies…
However, when they were transported to the city that was closest to Snow City, they were shocked.
Xu Que did not intend to camp here or spend time observing the enemies. He dashed right up to the city gate, yelling, “Kill them all!”
Seriously, what are you doing?
This is not how we thought it would be!
