Buttface had been delighted to give Xu Que a harsh kick. In a way, Xu Que was glad to be kicked as well. Buttface was happy because he finally got to teach Xu Que a lesson. Xu Que was happy because Buttface’s direct kick dispersed the embarrassing atmosphere in the room.
Buttface, thank you!
Xu Que opened his eyes and began to chant the magic words of the inscription on Buttface’s collar. Buttface suddenly screamed with pain and fell to the ground.
“How dare you try to sneak-attack me?!” Xu Que said angrily.
“Nonsense! It’s you who sneak-attacked me!” Buttface said. “I thought you were passed out!”
The collar was getting tighter and tighter. Buttface was furious.
“It was my clever trap!” Xu Que said. “I came here early this morning to set this trap for you. I lied down simply to see if you would take this opportunity to attack me. I never thought you would really do it! You are a real disappointment! Oh well. Don’t worry. I will find a place to bury you when you die of suffocation,” Xu Que said with a serious face. He dragged Buttface outside.
The Water Empress was still in a daze from hearing Xu Que say “give me a kiss.” All this time, she had thought of Xu Que as someone who was younger than her and who was just a friend.
Now, she finally realised there was more than just friendship between her and Xu Que. This made things complicated. She didn’t know how to feel now.
Xu Que took this opportunity to teach Buttface a lesson. Buttface’s screaming echoed throughout the palace.
On the one hand, to make the Water Empress believe his act, he needed hit Buttface with great strength; on the other hand, Buttface tried to sneak-attack him, so Xu Que actually wanted to hit him with great strength.
He hoped that Buttface’s interuption was enough to make the Water Empress forget him asking for a kiss. He didn’t want her to know about his true feelings toward her.
To express his gratitude to Buttface, he did not hit him that much.
After beating Buttface, he went directly to the Imperial Tomb. He had heard that the Imperial Tomb was full of hidden traps; however, with the map of the tomb and the key that the Water Empress gave him, Xu Que easily got into the tomb.
Since going through the Tribulation, he was now in the Infant Transformation Stage. With the experiences he had accumulated so far, he had even managed to reach the third level of the Infant Transformation Stage. His body had become extremely strong. Thus, most of the traps in the tomb would not hurt him.
It only took him two hours to find where the Dragon Vein was. He easily plucked the Genesis Water Herb and put it into his System Parcel.
He had collected three herbs so far. As for the Genesis Wood Herb and the Genesis Earth Herb, he needed to take them from Duan Jiude.
“Wait! I just remembered that the extremely beautiful Dowager of the Gold Nation mentioned that the Ice Jade Pill is hidden here!”
He went into another room. What luck! The Ice Jade Pill was right there. He pocketed the pill, some rest medicine, and some magic inscriptions.
I better take these and make good use of them rather than leaving them here to rot.
It was a short trip, but Xu Que left with great satisfaction. He had managed to find a new Dragon Vein for the Water Nation. With his Dragon-searching inscription and the large territory of the Water Nation, it had been easy for him to find it.
Now that he had this new Dragon Vein, he spent a whole night directing it to the Water Nation. He was pleased that he had managed to help maintain the prosperity of the country in such a significant way.
The next morning, he went back to the palace and took a different path so as to not run into the Water Empress.
According to the Technique of Hitting on a Girl, once two people feel a bit awkward towards each other, it is better for them avoid each other for a while so things can cool down a bit.
Xu Que carefully went to the outside of his room. To his surprise, the Water Empress sitting on a stone chair in the yard. Obviously, she was waiting for him.
“Did you manage to get the herb?” the Water Empress asked.
She still looked very demure and elegant. It seemed that she had forgotten what he said to her yesterday.
“Of course!” Xu Que said happily.
“What do you plan to do next?” the Water Empress asked.
“I am gonna to find Duan Jiude and teach him a lesson! But I have no idea where he is now. It is going to take some time to find him I think,” Xu Que said, anger rising in his voice.
“As far as I know, he has gone abroad,” she said gently. “Someone said he is now in the South Continent. He probably went there for the Trial in the Immortal Mansion that is going to be held in a few months.”
“South Continent?” Xu Que asked, surprised.
Xu Que hadn’t heard about a South Continent. He tried to search for information about the South Continent from the memory left in the body that he had inhabited. However, there wasn’t much there.
The only thing he knew for sure was that he was currently in the territory of the Five Nations where the Five Elements Mountain was located. He also knew that the mountain was located in the fringe of the East Continent.
In addition to this, he knew that on the other side of the sea was the center of the the East Continent. This place was full of countless powerful Fractions and Families.
However, since the sea was so big, among the five Nations, only three Factions, including the Sky Incense Valley, had their bases there and could go there via teleportation. As for the rest of the Factions, they had no idea what the center of the East Continent was really like.
It wasn’t until after the Water Empress mentioned the South Continent that he realised that this world had a South Continent that was entirely separate from the East Continent. He also recalled that someone had mentioned something about the Roc being in the North Sea, which meant the North Sea must also be very big.
Maybe there is another Continent in the west…
“The South Continent is a great distance south of here. Between the South Continent and the East Continent, there is a huge sea.” The Water Empress, explained, knowing that Xu Que had never heard of the South Continent. “Apart from the East Continent and the South Continent, there’s the North Sea and the West Desert. You will go there one day, and I believe you will like those places. There, you can fully show to the people how capable you are.”
“So I have to pay a visit to the South Continent if I want to find Duan Jiude?”
“I don’t think so. The Genesis Earth Herb and the Genesis Wood Herb are not that unique. You can easily find their substitutes. It just so happens that I plan to go abroad soon. I can help you find where he is,” The Water Empress said calmly.
“I prefer to go myself. Clearly, he comes for me. He pretends to be a member of the Exploding Heavens Faction and destroys its reputation. Because of this, I have lost face. I will not let him get away with this. Besides, I am on the way to being extremely powerful. If I avoid him, I will be allowing a demon to get into my heart.”
Others might be willing to let a demon inside their heart, but Xu Que would not allow it. He just wanted to teach Duan Jiude a lesson and to save face.
At last, the Water Empress was persuaded. She knew that once a cultivator was in the Infant Transformation Stage, having a demon living inside his heart would have a very bad influence on him. He could even be devoured by the demon if he was not careful.
“You are right. Go back and make some preparations for departure. I shall meet you there at a later time. Duan Jiude won’t be so hard on you if he sees me beside you.”
“Deal! But once I see him, I’m gonna beat him up!” Xu Que said. “By the way, I wonder if I can pay a visit to the Fire Nation if time allows. I have some errands to run there.”
