Chapter 504: Great Seafood Feast
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The streets of the Imperial City were silent. Everyone was stunned. Their eyes were wide with disbelief. They had just witnessed the resurrection of Li Bai with their own eyes. He didn’t have a scratch on him.
Thousands of tribulations and centuries of hardship…
An immortal body and soul… He outweighs everyone in this world…
“He is really immortal and has eternal life!”
“My God! Then who could ever stop him?”
“Exactly, he is invincible!”
Xu Que had said that Li Bai would often ask why he had been granted with invincibility and immortality. When Xu Que said this, people thought that he was lying to them.
Now, whether people believed Xu Que’s words or not, the miracle was right in front of their eyes. Li Bai was really revived. His white robe, white folding fan, and long hair flowing in the wind were quite impressive.
“Impossible!” said the Sea Tribe member in the thunder pool. “How could this…be possible? How could such a magic art exist in this world?”
Immortality… This should be the skill of the Heavens alone!
This Sea Tribe member came here from the overseas area, a place which boasted about its vast territory and abundant resources. However, he had never heard of anyone becoming immortal. Achieving eternal life was impossible, even for celestials.
Xu Que’s Thunder Illusion Body shook his head calmly.
“It’s just immortality!” Li Bai said. “Every member of the Exploding Heavens Faction is immortal! Haven’t you heard? You are so ignorant, a regular frog in a well.”
“You…” the Sea Tribe man was speechless.
Previously, he had described the people of the Five Nations as ignorant frogs in a well. Li Bai’s perfect retort made him speechless.
The Thunder Illusion Body’s calm retort shocked everyone else as well.
He is immortal!
How could he be so calm?
Did he say every member of the Exploding Heavens Faction is immortal?
How is the Exploding Heavens Faction so awesome?
In a way, Xu Que’s Thunder Illusion Body was actually right! While Xu Que’s actual body wasn’t immortal, his illusionary bodies were! If any of his illusionary bodies were destroyed, Xu Que could summon them again, giving them a certain type of eternal life.
“Lord Li!” Madam Ya shouted.
She was so pleasantly happy and surprised at Li Bai’s miraculous reappearance. Standing high in the sky, the Thunder Illusion Body looked at Madam Ya and smiled slightly.
“Please wait for a moment. I will invite you to eat seafood with me tonight!”
“OK!” Madame Ya said, nodding in delight. She was so happy now!
The Thunder Illusion Body produced a sharp and shiny sword.
In the blink of an eye, Li Bai disappeared then reappeared on the mantis shrimp’s body. He was now inside the pool of lightning! Bolts of lightning were rolling around them. However, Li Bai was not injured. He did not seem to be affected by the pool of lightning at all.
This was because the Thunder Illusion Body was an illusionary body made up of thunder and lightning. How could it be harmed by electricity?
The people watching were shocked and speechless.
The thunder and lightning which put the two Sea Tribe members through living h*ll aren’t hurting Li Bai at all! How powerful is he!?
“What are you going to do to me?!” the Sea Tribe member asked in anger and desperation.
“Nothing, just check whether your meat is well-cooked!” the Thunder Illusion Body said with a slight smile.
Li Bai stabbed his sword into the mantis shrimp’s charred shell. As expected, after being scorched by the Mystical Fire and the golden lighting, the shell of was not as strong as it used to be. Thus, the sword easily penetrated it.
The Thunder Illusion Body turned his sword and pried up a large piece of the shell. Lightning bolts flocked in through the opening.
“Ah!” The mantis shrimp let out a miserable scream.
He wanted to explode himself to die together with his opponent; however, knowing his opponent was immortal, he had lost the courage to do so.
The Thunder Illusion Body continued to pry off the shrimp shell. Finally, the Sea Tribe member was killed by the lightning. All of his flesh was burnt and gave off a dense aroma of meat. Thunder Illusion Body then tossed the charred body down from the sky. The body smashed down and cracked the ground.
“It’s my turn to attack!” Buttface yelled.
Buttface dashed forward and started to bite the dead, well-cooked mantis shrimp to demonstrate his ferocious nature as a wolf. Everyone looked at him disdainfully.
Xu Que just ignored Buttface. How could someone find this burnt seafood delicious? Only a lazy dog like Buttface would want to eat it.
Xu Que then waved his hand, causing the pool of lightning to dissipate. As the pool of lightning disappeared, the lower body of the other Sea Tribe Member dropped from the sky. After all, when the first mantis shrimp exploded, he had only exploded his upper body.
Xu Que lifted up one of the shrimp shells with his sword and found that the meat inside was not burnt and was still very fresh. These shrimp shells provided powerful defense, seeing as this meat was preserved despite being attacked by extreme fire and electric attacks.
“Bring the fresh shrimp meat back to the Imperial Palace and freeze it with ice,” Xu Que shouted. “Tonight we will have a seafood feast. Sushi and sashimi. Steamed shrimp and sizzling shrimp. All types of shrimp meat will be served!”
“Yes, sir!” said some Imperial Guards.
The Imperial Guards who had escorted Madam Ya to the area proceeded to obey the monkey’s order. The relationship between Madam Ya and Lord Li Bai of the Exploding Heavens Faction was well-known amongst the people of the Imperial City, though no one ever spoke about it.
By the same logic, everyone knew that any order given by a member of the Exploding Heavens Faction was equivalent to receiving an order from Madam Ya. Thus, no one dared disobey the orders of this monkey.
Now that the fight was over, the Thunder Illusion Body and Madam Ya got on a carriage and returned to the Imperial Palace.
As the carriage began to leave, Xu Que became deep in thought. Su Ling’er noticed Xu Que’s expression and walked over to him.
“Don’t worry, Sun Wu Kong,” she said softly. “The Sea Tribe is very powerful. However, I know that the Five Nations will be protected as long as you and the rest of the Exploding Heavens Faction can fight against them.”
“I am not worrying about the Sea Tribe,” Xu Que said, shaking his head. “I am thinking about what else I can cook with the meat of the mantis shrimp!”
“Ah?” Su Ling’er was stunned. She didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Why does this guy always think about food?
“Oh, I got it!” Xu Que said, his eyes brightening. “No wonder I felt that something was missing.”
He looked around and saw a meat shop which had been temporarily closed because of the combat. He ran over and knocked at the door.
“Open the door, please! We promise not to steal anything… I want to buy some beef and pork!”
Su Ling’er and Su Xiao Qi walked over to Xu Que with puzzled expressions.
“Why do you want to buy beef and pork?”
Xu Que raised the corner of his mouth in a smile.
“Have you heard of the Juicy Beef Ball or the Barbequed Pork Rice With Deep Sorrow cooked by Stephen Chow of the Exploding Heavens Faction?
