Later, Xu Que and his three thousand soldiers settled down in the palace. They were looked after by the maids and eunuchs as if they were royals.
After all, they had taken back all the lost cities, so they deserved to be treated like this. When the Water Empress returned, they would surely receive rewards.
The soldiers of Snow City all felt very lucky that they had followed Xu Que.
At midnight, Xu Que sat in a yard, smoking.
Buttface was very curious about his cigarette and asked if he could have one from him. He took a small drag and almost choked to death. He lay on the ground and stared at Xu Que.
“You are really a freak. How can you act so comfortable smoking this sort of trash!”
“Buttface, shut up! I am thinking, do not disturb me!” Xu Que said impatiently. Then he fell into deep thought again.
Buttface asked, “Are you planning to take over the remaining four nations?”
“Why on earth would I want to attack the remaining four nations? I was thinking about what that soldier had said to me earlier. Don’t you find it odd that the Ice Queen left just like that?” Xu Que frowned. Clearly, he still did not believe what he had been told.
The Ice Queen was injured by the Water Empress and then ran back to the palace. When she was seen by Zi Xuan, she told her what had happened and then simply left. I just find this too hard to believe.
The Ice Queen is such an ambitious woman, it is impossible that she would so easily give up the whole city.
“You are right. This indeed sounds very odd! She has been planning to take over the Water Nation for fifty years, she wouldn’t abandon this city like that.” Buttface nodded.
“I knew it. See? Even someone as stupid as you can agree that this is very odd. How can it be possible that no one else ever doubts this? I think we have been tricked!” Xu Que said.
Buttface nodded, then realized Xu Que was making fun of him. “Who said that I am stupid? It’s typical for ordinary people to believe this hoax, but I am different, as I am very clever.”
“Shut up! Whenever you open your mouth and start to talk, I just want to give you a slap!” Xu Que said, standing up.
Hearing this, Buttface shied away and shouted, “Seriously? What is wrong with you?”
“I’m just kidding. By the way, I think the Ice Queen is still in the palace, she must be hiding somewhere.” Xu Que frowned.
“I agree with you.” Buttface nodded.
“I think I will have to pay a visit to the Water Empress’ bedroom!” Xu Que said rather seriously.
“What?! Why are you going to the Water Empress’ bedroom?” Buttface was stunned. “You are not going to take this opportunity to f*ck someone in her bedroom, right?”
“Nonsense! I am not that sort of person. Now think, you idiot. There is only one place that is the safe in the entire palace, and that place is the Water Empress’ bedroom. Apart from the Water Empress herself, no one would dare enter. So if the Ice Queen is still in the palace, she must be hiding there!” Xu Que said.
Buttface wanted to say something to contradict with him, but he felt his words made sense.
Then he sat on the ground and said, “You go then, I am going to sit here and absorb the energy of the moon!”
“B*stard! You are so lazy!” Xu Que cursed.
In fact, he had not intended to take Buttface with him in the first place.
In the blink of an eye, he left the yard.
The layout of the palace was not that complicated, and there were many ponds around. In certain places, the water element Qi rose up from the ground.
Due to this, the entire palace was shrouded by fog and had been like that for years. Once a normal person stepped into the palace, they would be bound to get lost.
For Xu Que, the fog was not a big deal. With the help of True Core Strength, he could see his surroundings clearly.
On his way to the Water Empress’ bedroom, many maids, eunuchs and guards greeted him and called him ‘General Zhuge’, or ‘General Xu.”
In case people found out that he was heading to the Water Empress’ bedroom, Xu Que pretended that he was just taking a walk after dinner.
He casually walked around, humming a tune. Some guards walked past him and looked at him as if he was a crazy person.
Xu Que shouted, “Don’t give me that look, I was just humming! Do your work!”
After a while, he finally arrived at the Water Empress’ bedroom. It was dark inside and there were a few soldiers patrolling outside.
He hid in a dark corner and use his God’s Strength to search the bedroom, trying to find out if there was anyone inside.
But as soon as his God’s Strength touched the bedroom, it bounced back.
“What?” Xu Que was surprised.
Ding. “Magic array detected. To break it, spend 500 Acting Tough Points. Yes or No?” The sound of the notification rang in his mind.
“No. Since it is blocked, I will check it out myself!” Xu Que said.
500 Acting Tough Points?! I’m not stupid.
Over the past two days, Xu Que had already spent over ten thousand Acting Tough Points. After doing some calculations, he found that he had only earned eight thousand points… but to please the Water Empress, he did not mind.
The next moment, he changed into some leaves and snuck into the bedroom.
As soon as he got in, he stopped to breathe and hid himself.
He looked around. He could smell a fragrant aroma, which reminded him exactly of the scent of the Water Empress’ oft-used perfume.
When he was about to walk, a ray of light appeared, quickly turning into a big bowl that covered him. Then the bowl changed into an ice prison.
A woman slowly walked out, sneering. “You really are clever! Still, how dare you enter the Water Empress’ bedroom?”
