Chapter 466: Attract Thunder Tribulation by Acting Tough
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
When Xu Que completed his 49 Heavenly Tribulations, he had tried to summon the tribulations by acting tough in a way that was cool and domineering.
At that time, he had yelled to the sky a lot, and ended up saying, “I am not handsome!” Then he had received the reply, “You lied!” Then the Heavenly Tribulation had come.
However, this time he did not want to repeat this trick.
With his hands behind his back, he stood there calmly and looked at the sky. His expression was a little bit lonely and thoughtful.
People in the area started to fix their eyes on him. They gradually grew quiet.
However, after a while, someone grew impatient and started to frown.
“What’s going on? Why is General Zhuge standing in a daze on the mountaintop?”
“Right, even if he plans to take the Heavenly Tribulation here, at least he should make some preparations, right?”
“He should at least take a Vitality Pill, right? And he should also take out his magic artifacts. But why is he doing nothing?”
“Could it be that his calculation of the time was incorrect? Is the Heavenly Tribulation not ripe yet?”
“Wow, this is good news. General Zhuge, you still have time to change the site. Don’t cling on to this place,” someone started to shout at Xu Que. They asked him to go to the Temple of Heaven.
“Right, General Zhuge, just change the site!”
“It is unnecessary to take the Heavenly Tribulation here!”
“It’s really unnecessary!”
Many people also started to shout at him, trying to persuade him to change his mind.
However, Xu Que had made up his mind. Standing on the hilltop and with his robe whirling about in the wind, he was very handsome and composed.
“You really don’t want to change the site, right?” asked the Water Empress, delivering a message from the mountaintop opposite. Her voice was calm and tender.
“A word spoken by a real man cannot be taken back! I will not change the site,” Xu Que replied sonorously. Like a soldier about to enter the battlefield, his eyes were resolute and determined.
His words and solemn expression immediately impressed many onlookers at the foot of the hill, who couldn’t help getting excited.
“It seems… it is reasonable that General Zhuge is so powerful!”
“Right! Although he fools around shamelessly every day, he can still press forward with indomitable will, and undergo the Heavenly Tribulation!”
“This is even more than pressing forward with indomitable will, this is undergoing the Heavenly Tribulation and risking his life!”
“Alas, that’s why he is so powerful. He can fight an expert of the Infant Transformation Stage whilst at level 10 of the Original Infant Stage!”
“His mighty strength and power have definitely been realized through great efforts!”
Many people were exclaiming and looking at Xu Que on the mountaintop with adoring eyes.
At this moment, Xu Que who was on the mountaintop finally started to move. After letting out a heavy sigh, he stopped watching the sky.
Seeing that, the onlookers at the foot of the hill started to stir uneasily.
“Is General Zhuge going to start his preparations?”
“I knew it! General Zhuge would never play with his life!”
“Exactly! After all, he is going to cross the Heavenly Tribulation in the Imperial Tomb. He at least needs some elixirs and magic artifacts for protection.”
“See, see, he is taking something out!” some sharp-eyed people shouted in surprise.
Waving his hand, Xu Que took out an item from the storage of the System.
All the onlookers were stunned slightly, and then were dumbfounded after giving that item a good look.
What he had taken out was a chair!
“What’s going on?”
“Could this chair be a magic artifact?”
“It doesn’t look like a magic artifact! It doesn’t even have spiritual fluctuations!”
All at once, many people were totally confused.
Even the Water Empress who was on the hill opposite Xu Que was shocked. She didn’t know what Xu Que was going to do by taking out a chair at this moment.
However, Xu Que continued to place the chair down. Then he took out a table from the package of the System.
The next moment, he started to put things on the table in an orderly fashion under the watchful eyes of the onlookers.
Tea sets, cups, a gas stove, water kettle, top-class Pu-erh tea… finally he even took out a giant sunshade. Then he stuck the sunshade into the ground and opened it.
Sitting in the chair, he made a fire and placed the kettle on the fire. Then he started to wait in his chair.
Immediately all the onlookers were stunned.
What… is he doing?
Is he making tea?
The Heavenly Tribulation is coming. How can you sit here and make tea with so professional tools?
The Water Empress was shocked too. She didn’t expect Xu Que to wait for the Heavenly Tribulation in such a manner. His behavior was too bold and absurd!
At this moment, the water in the kettle began boiling.
Xu Que picked up the kettle immediately and washed the tea cups with boiling water first. Then he poured some water into the teapot to wash the tea!
The whole process was quite elegant. It was like the process for Kungfu Tea, which was slow and agreeable.
All at once, all the onlookers were completely puzzled.
What is this guy going to do?
Is he really going to take the Heavenly Tribulation today?
Could it be that he is lying to us? No one can pass the Heavenly Tribulation in this way! How can he sit there and drink tea?
“Xu Que, don’t do anything stupid.” Finally the Water Empress delivered a message to him at this moment.
This time she didn’t call him “little chap” but spoke his name with a serious expression.
What Xu Que was doing now was a great disrespect to the Heavens, which could easily lead to disastrous results.
However, Xu Que replied calmly with a smile, “Young lady, do you want a cup of tea?”
After saying that, he poured the tea into several cups which gave off white vapor and a fragrance of rich tea.
Then he flicked his finger gently. Whoosh! A cup flew to the Water Empress who was on the hill opposite him.
“Please taste the tea that was made by me. It is authentic century-old Pu-erh tea.” Xu Que smiled.
The Water Empress was shocked slightly. Then she waved her slender hand and took the cup easily. Looking at Xu Que’s smiling face with puzzlement, the Water Empress thought suddenly: Is this little guy doing this intentionally? Does he plan to summon a more violent Heavenly Tribulation?
Thinking of this, the Water Empress picked up the cup and took a sip. The rich tea fragrance filled her body immediately. Meanwhile, her Soul Strength was instantly nourished by a formless energy, which shocked her a bit.
Could…this tea be used to strengthen one’s Soul Strength? It is even more powerful than his stinky tofu! the Water Empress said to herself silently.
Xu Que squinted his eyes and also took a sip of tea with smile.
He had used his chef skills whilst concocting the tea. The effect was very powerful. One cup of tea could double one’s Soul Strength temporarily, which was even more powerful than Vitality Pills.
“Is it good?” asked Xu Que as he looked at the Water Empress with smile.
The Water Empress nodded with a smile. “It’s good!”
Xu Que said, “Do you like it?”
The Water Empress said, “I like it!”
Xu Que said, “Okay, next time I will make noodles for you.”
The Water Empress said, “Okay!”
The rest of the onlookers were confused totally and didn’t have time to react. It is one thing for General Zhuge to act mischievously. But how could the Water Empress behave like this by drinking tea and chatting with him?
At this moment, Xu Que put the teacup back onto the table and stood up abruptly.
Immediately, all the onlookers started to stare at Xu Que.
Finally, Xu Que spoke.
“The tea, these lofty mountains and this flowing water all remind me of my childhood!”
The onlookers felt the corners of their mouths twitch.
Damn! I just thought you were going to say something impressive. Is it a good time to reminisce about your childhood now?
However, Xu Que continued to speak. “I remember when I was young, I used to see Duan Jiu De!”
“What?” hearing the name ‘Duan Jiu De’, everyone was shocked.
Could it be that General Zhuge met Duan Jiu De in his childhood? Holy shit! What is the relationship between him and Duan Jiu De?
Xu Que continued to say, “Frankly speaking, Duan Jiu De was quite powerful!”
Hearing that, the onlookers raised their eyebrows immediately. Everyone knows Duan Jiu De is powerful, okay?
At this moment, Xu Que looked at the onlookers suddenly and said, “Do you know, when he saw me, he started to exclaim, ‘It is impossible! It is impossible for this world to have such a handsome person in it!’ Then, he started to attack me out of jealousy.”
All of a sudden, all the onlookers went still!
Did Duan Jiu De attack you because he was jealous of your handsome appearance?
Damn! See what a braggart you are! You said you were young at that time. If Duan Jiu De really attacked you, how could you stay alive until now?
By ignoring the onlookers’ expressions and the dumbfounded Water Empress, Xu Que continued to say, “At that time, I fought with him for eight rounds, and he was defeated by me. When I was about to punch him for the eighth time, he called someone to attack me shamelessly with a magic artifact. My Gosh! I didn’t hesitate to drop the two buckets of water in my hands and started to fight them seriously! Later, when I was about to kill them both, Duan Jiu De summoned another person to attack me from behind. It was lucky that I opened my eyes in time and finally repelled the three of them with great efforts.”
The area was in silence. All the onlookers were totally dumbfounded and confused!
Shaking his head, Xu Que sighed. “Alas, whenever I think of this, I am always touched. Can I be guilty for simply being handsome?”
Suddenly, a big bang resounded in the sky. It shocked the earth like mighty thunder from the Nine Heavens.
