He was speechless.
But he could not do anything about it. He had decided not to return the Acting Tough Points he had loaned.
“The deadline is in nine months later… by that time, I would have already revived the Exploding Heavens Faction. Then no one would dare ask me to pay back the debt.”
Anyway, he now had a new jade bamboo slip, and the hidden magic inscriptions of the Star Rank were written upon it.
“Let me have a good look at you!” Xu Que smiled and scanned it with his Soul Strength.
The next minute, he exclaimed: “holy sh*t! ‘One turning into Three Pure Ones’? I haven’t seen it in the System, and I never thought that such a thing would be here.”
‘One turning into Three Pure Ones’ was a very powerful magic inscription. Having featured in ancient Chinese fairy tales, it had been created by Taishang Laojun, the Heavenly Lord of Tao and Virtue.
It was said that when he had been fighting against the Tong Tian Leader, he had created three pure ones: the Jade Pure One, the Supreme Pure One and the Grand Pure One.
Xu Que was surprised when he read the description of the magic inscription.
“One turning into Three Pure Ones (chapter three)” :
‘The Tao produced One; One produced Two; Two produced Three; Three produced All things. The three turned into three chi, the three chi then turned into three pure ones. When the owner collects all the chapters, he can master this magic inscription and even choose his own fate!’
Why is the ‘One turning into Three Pure Ones’ a bit different from what I imagined it to be in this world? It seems stranger.
“System, are you sure this book is real? It did not even mention any techniques. Must I really make a great effort to master this inscription, simply to change my own fate? Is it really necessary?” Xu Que asked himself.
He himself was not afraid of anyone—otherwise he would not have dared establish the Exploding Heavens Faction.
Therefore, he did not think he needed to change his own fate. Although this inscription was one of the Star Rank, it had no techniques, and this made Xu Que feel rather upset.
“I have been refining the skills of the ancient five elemental arts, and I have learned the effect of the Qi of five elements. As for the inscription of Star Rank, I would have to wait until I finishing mastering it to see what happens… I don’t even think I can wait that long!” Xu Que said. He still did not believe it was real.
After a while, the System said, “It is an original inscription of this world. What is rational is actual and what is actual is rational.”
“What is rational is actual and what is actual is rational? I can’t believe you’re talking about philosophy with me now…” Xu Que was confused.
Then he threw that book back into his storage.
Fine. Anyway, that book did not cost me anything and now it is of no use to me, so I shall just put it aside. Besides, I would have to master the first chapter and the second chapter before I can practice the third one! This is ridiculous!
“I still have the Shadowmeld of Three Thousand Thunders. After I master that, I will be invincible. System, use all the Skills Essence to upgrade the ‘the Shadowmeld of Three Thousand Thunders’.”
All the fifty books he bought were recycled and turned into 1500 points of Skills Essence.
Ding! “1500 Skills Essence consumed. Upgrading, 30 percent.”
What the f*ck!
Xu Que was stunned.
I have f*cking spent 1500 Skills Essence, but the process of upgrading is still 30 percent?!
“Never mind. You must be a fake System, I no longer want to ask anything from you,” Xu Que said angrily. He felt as if he would explode if he heard one more word from the System.
There was a restaurant on the other side of the street, from which people were coming and going.
On the second floor, there were only a few young people drinking and eating.
Although it was crowded downstairs with many people, no one dared to go upstairs.
“Haha, Young Twelve, it is really a great honour that you have come to our restaurant!” a chap in blue clothes said to a handsome young man.
The handsome young man, who he had addressed as ‘Young Twelve’, smiled. “Before, the Imperial City was under the Ice Queen’s control and I was forbidden to go out. Now that she has run away, I can finally enjoy myself around the city!”
The other young men and women sitting next to him asked with excitement, “Have you found something interesting? Tell us and show us! We have also been grounded for the past few months and we are so bored.”
“Yes! When that Ice Queen came here, I couldn’t even step out of my room. I have to enjoy myself today!”
“Luckily that Ice Queen left in the end, otherwise I might have died of boredom.”
“I heard that the Water Empress sent a powerful General called Zhuge to reclaim the Imperial City, do you know who he is?”
“I think he must be very old, otherwise he wouldn’t be so powerful! I have been told that he managed to take all the lost ten cities back within just two days.”
“That can’t be true. But anyway, that man must be very old and powerful.”
Obviously, these young people did not know what had really transpired.
The handsome young man was the only son of the third Duke. The young people surrounding him were all members of his gang. He heard what they were talking about and sneered. “No matter how powerful he is, he is just a servant to us royals, isn’t he?”
Hearing this, the young men and women around him all laughed. “Yes, you are right! No matter how powerful he is, he will have to kill the enemy and protect the country for your sake.”
“Let’s drop this tedious topic, remember we come out for fun today. I heard that there was a young man wanting to buy some magic inscriptions today. They said that young man had a million Spirit Stones of low quality!” Young Twelve smiled. He was playing with a cup in his hands and staring at Zhai Bao Ge, which was on the other side of the street.
“I see… you want to go play with that young man!”
“I heard that he has bought the Zhai Bao Ge, so he must have plenty of Spirit Stones.”
“No wonder Young Twelve came to this shabby restaurant. See, Zhai Bao Ge is just on the other side of this street,” a young man said, pointing to the shop.
