Chapter 419: He Is Going To Give People A Great Show Tomorrow
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
It was dusk when Xu Que and his three thousand soldiers arrived at Yun Ling City.
With the help of his helicopters, tanks, Rocket Guns and God-Powered Cannons, the soldiers initiated their attack on the city.
Although the city wall was also protected by a Protection Array, it could not withstand the explosive force of the bombs and collapsed at last.
Xu Que then snuck into the city and killed the governor with the Killer God’s Single Stroke. Seeing this, all the soldiers and officials of Yun Ling City surrendered.
None of them had intended to betray the Water Empress in the first place, so they quickly surrendered.
Then Xu Que and his soldiers looted the governor’s residence, just as they had done before in the other cities.
The soldiers of Snow City knocked heavily at the doors to the residence and shouted, “Open the door. We have come to check your water meter. We will not take anything from you.”
The door opened. The all swamped into the house and politely ransacked all the rooms. They then settled inside the house.
In one day, they had managed to take four cities back. This was really something that had never happened before. Since it was already dusk, Xu Que decided to let the soldiers have a rest before heading out to the next city the following day.
Buttface was very happy as Xu Que had given him a helicopter and a tank to use. He maneuvered them around the city over the night.
To Xu Que’s surprise, Buttface knew how to operate the helicopter and the tank. Buttface said that he had learned from the other soldiers in the day.
How amazing. His intelligence level is so low, so how did he manage to learn this so quickly?
“Where on earth did you come from?” he asked Buttface.
Buttface was busy driving the tank and did not think too much. Then he said, “I am the offspring of the Ancient Magic Dragon. I have already lived six lifetimes, and in three more lifetimes, I will become a dragon.”
Xu Que did not believe what he had said at all, but he felt like Buttface was not lying.
“Can it be true?” Xu Que murmured.
“Of course it is true. Because I have met some troubles, I turned into a wolf. In the next life, I will become a fierce tiger!”
“I simply cannot believe it!” Xu Que said.
Then he turned and went back to the city.
While he was heading back to the city, he suddenly recalled that he had once heard a story about the offspring of a dragon. The story was called “Nine Sons Of The Dragon”.
In the book Huailu Tangji, the nine sons were Qiu Niu, Ya Zi, Chao Feng, Pu Lao, Suan Ni, Bi Xi, Bi An, Fu Xi, and Chi Wen.
Buttface had nothing in common with the nine sons, so Xu Que had never before thought to consider the notion that he might be offspring of the dragon.
In another book Sheng’an Waiji by the poet Yang Shen, different names were given for the fifth and ninth children of the dragon. The fifth was the taotie, which loved to eat and was often a symbol on food-related wares, and the ninth was the jiaotu, which looked like a conch or clam, did not like to be disturbed, and often featured as a symbol on front doors and doorsteps. Yang’s list was Bi Xi, Chi Wen or Chao Feng, Pu Lao, Bi An, Taotie, Qiu Niu, Ya Zi, Suan Ni, and Jiaotu.
Taotie looked like a wolf and liked to eat. In the past, many people had thought that its head was beautiful and had engraved it on the surface of food and wine containers. In the legend, Taotie liked to eat very much, so the ancients would usually call someone who was greedy about food and money ‘Taotie’.
In this regard, Buttface does resemble Taotie, but he just said he would become a tiger in his next life. Amongst the nine sons, Bi An looks similar to a tiger…
Thinking of this, Xu Que felt a bit nervous.
If he really is the offspring of the dragon, I have to beat him few more times before he turns into a dragon…
“Buttface…” Xu Que turned around and walked towards Buttface.
Buttface was crawling out a tank and was about to jump into a helicopter. He did not answer Xu Que.
Then Xu Que gave it him big slap!
“Ouch! Why did you hit me? Do you want to have a fight with me?” Buttface got very angry.
Xu Que said, “Shut up! You said you have lived six lifetimes. What are your incarnations?”
“I do not remember!” Buttface said reluctantly.
Xu Que knew that he had to be hiding something, since every time something important came up, he would always conceal what he knew.
For example, he must have known more about the Five Elements Mountain and had decided not to tell me everything. When he told me about the seal on the Five Elements Mountain and the Zudi of the black monkeys, he had pretended not to remember clearly… everything about him is just so strange. He was sealed in the stone wall of a Sword Catacomb, which is very similar to a seal for the Five Elements Mountain…
“Fine! If you don’t want to tell me, then don’t. But from tomorrow onwards, you will not be permitted to drive any helicopters or tanks!” then Xu Que left.
Buttface angrily replied, “I don’t care! I can make my own helicopters and tanks!”
“Good! If you manage to make one helicopter or tank, I will treat you a meal at KFC!” Xu Que said.
Then he went right back to Yun Ling City.
Anyway, neither the business of the Five Elements Mountain or the origin of Buttface had anything to do with him. He was just a little curious, but now he was not able to get answers, he simply stopped.
In his dictionary, there were only three things—flirting with women, acting tough, and eating.
The next day, Xu Que headed to the fifth city along with the three thousand soldiers of Snow City.
Situ Wu was already back in the Snow City.
In the governor’s residence, he and Situ were looking at each other silently.
They now knew that they could not stop Xu Que from reclaiming the Water Nation.
From time to time, soldiers would come in and report to them the latest news from the front line.
“Hero Zhuge has taken back Li Kong City!”
“Hero Zhuge has taken back Zhen Feng City!”
“Hero Zhuge has taken back Tian Yu City! The governors of the remaining three cities have abandoned their cities and run away… now, all ten lost cities have been taken back.”
“Hero Zhuge said he is going to give people a great show at the Imperial City tomorrow.”
