In the next day, the news that Xu Que was going to go through another Heavenly Tribulation spread across the Imperial City.
When people heard that he had chosen the Imperial Tomb to be the site of the Heavenly Tribulation, they were shocked.
“My god! Is he insane?!”
“Throughout history, every Emperor of the Water Nation has been buried there, and the Dragon Veins are right beneath it. He is putting himself in a very dangerous situation.”
“He is the General, he can just choose the Temple of Heaven, why on earth has he chosen the Imperial Tomb?”
“I have no idea. I got the news from someone I know in the palace.”
“Someone heard that the Water Empress was persuading him to go to the Temple of Heaven instead, but he didn’t listen.”
“Yes! He said that a strong man should not be afraid of anything and can never be called a strong man if he is afraid of the Heavenly Tribulation.”
Hearing this, people were speechless.
A strong man should not be afraid of anything. Yes! This all sounds very good. But he is going to go through the 59 Heavenly Tribulations, which is much more powerful than the 49 Heavenly Tribulations. His life would be in enough peril in the Temple of Heaven without full preparations.
And this time he has chosen to go through his Heavenly Trial in the Imperial Tomb? At least among the Five Nations, no one has ever done this before.
All of a sudden, everyone was talking about this.
If this news had broken out just a few days ago, people would still be discussing it, but not at such a large scale.
But since Xu Que was the boss of the Wanda Plaza of Exploding Heavens Faction, and the burger, the french fries and so on were the hope of the cultivators in the city, Xu Que himself now represented the hope of the entire city.
Thus, everyone hoped that he could safely complete his Heavenly Tribulation.
Some influential officials even submitted a written statement to the Water Empress, hoping she could persuade him.
“I hope you can stop General Zhuge from going to the Imperial Tomb!”
“Please stop him, if he disagrees, we can tie him up and bring him to the Temple of Heaven.”
“Yes, I would like to risk my life to bring him to the Temple of Heaven!”
“Me too! But I hope Your Highness can protect my family from being looted by General Zhuge.”
Reading these statements, the Water Empress frowned and had quite a headache.
Last night, when Xu Que had said he would like to go to the Imperial Tomb instead, she had been stunned and thought that he was joking.
But when she saw his sincere eyes, she instantly knew he meant what he had said.
When she asked him why he was doing this, he replied with, “Because of love.” At that moment, she had been really embarrassed.
In fact, the Water Empress had talked about this business with Xu Que many times, but he had never listened.
That night, Xu Que had said many marvelous and ambitious words, and they had all been heard by the guards, maids, and eunuchs who walked by.
They were all surprised by his words and called him ‘the man of heaven’.
“This little chap is indeed a troublemaker!” The Water Empress shook her head and forced out a smile.
Although she knew going to the Imperial Tomb was very dangerous, when she saw his acting so confident, she realised there was no use in saying anything else to persuade him.
She knew that he never did things he was not sure of, and if he indeed was in danger, he could run away easily and quickly. For example, last time in the Tower of Souls, he had managed to run away as soon as he had smelt the Qi of the masters of Sky Incense Valley.
Thinking of this, the Water Empress finally felt relieved and pushed the statement aside. Then she stood up and headed to her bedroom, and decided to see how Xu Que was planning to go through his Heavenly Tribulation.
Meanwhile, Xu Que and Buttface arrived at the Imperial Tomb.
Earlier, Buttface had heard the news and hurriedly went to the Imperial Tomb. He told Xu Que that he would like to help him if anything dangerous happened, but in fact, he simply wanted to be the first one to witness Xu Que getting wounded.
For Buttface, today might be the best day ever.
“Young man, you really have no need to come here. The most important thing is your own safety!” Buttface said, trying very hard to suppress his happiness.
Xu Que sneered. “Do not worry, I will have you with me when I go through the Heavenly Tribulation.”
Hearing this, Buttface was terrified and immediately ran away.
Xu Que stood in the gateway of the imperial City and looked around, trying to find the spot where the Qi of Dragon was the thickest.
Last time when he was going through the 49 Heavenly Tribulations, even the Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud had been destroyed and turned into Qi. The Qi then nourished and rebuilt Xu Que’s body. Besides, he had even created a new magic inscription, the Monkey Blocks Lightning.
Since the power of the thunder and lightning was immensely huge, Xu Que wanted to take this opportunity to nourish and enhance his body again. Apart from this, he also wanted to make the Monkey Blocks Lightning more powerful.
Soon, many people gathered, waiting to see Xu Que go through his Heavenly Tribulation.
Amongst the people, some had come simply to see a show, whilst the rest had come to persuade Xu Que to stop this.
“Thanks for your consideration. I have made up my mind,” Xu Que said, standing at the top of the Mountain of the Imperial Tomb.
We are just worried that no one can continue to make burgers and things like that when you are dead…
As time passed, more and more people gathered.
More than half the entire population of the city came at last.
Seeing this, Xu Que felt very satisfied and kept a stiff upper lip. He stood alone at the top and looked like a lonely powerful man, like a romantic hero in a novel.
“The Princess Zi Xuan is coming!”
Seeing this, people quickly made way for her.
A luxury carriage slowly came. The curtain had not been lifted up yet, but people knew that the Princess Zi Xuan was sitting inside.
“The Water Empress is coming!”
People were stunned.
He is really something. Last time, both the Princess and the Water Empress were attracted by his McDonald’s. This time, they have come again for him.
The Water Empress was not riding a carriage—instead she was riding a Precious Cloud Water Sword. Then she landed on top of a mountain opposite the Mountain of Imperial Tomb. it seemed that she intended to protect Xu Que if anything happened.
“Little chap, you really think you can safely go through this?” she asked Xu Que calmly.
Xu Que nodded. “Young lady, do not worry about me, I will be fine.”
“Good!” the Water Empress nodded and smiled gently.
Meanwhile, the sound of the System notifications were ringing in his head.
Ding! “The Heavenly Trial is about to begin, once the host successfully goes through this, the host can enter the Infant Transformation Stage.”
Ding! “The level of the 59 Heavenly Tribulations is ‘Hell Mode’. If the host summons the Heavenly Tribulation himself, the difficulty will increase, but once the host completes it, he will receive a ‘Big Gift Box of the Heavenly Tribulation’. Are you going to summon it?”
Big Gift Box of the Heavenly Tribulation?
Hearing this, Xu Que’s eyes sparkled.
I want it! Increasing the difficulty of the Heavenly Tribulation? This is exactly what I want!
Let me show you how tough I can act!
