Chapter 536: The Ancient Teleportation Device
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The Snow City was located at the border of the Water Nation, which was quite far away from the Imperial City.
Even though Xu Que and Buttface had used a teleportation device in the Snow City, they had to use other teleportation devices in the ancient cities along the way. Finally, they arrived in the Imperial City early morning of the next day.
“Haha, here we are, at last! Little brat, this time you played a good trick on that Shang Wu! I can only use two words to describe you—awesome!” Buttface said excitedly when they had just arrived. On the way, Buttface kept telling Xu Que that he did a good job teasing Shang Wu.
“That’s only one word! Enough, stop wasting your words, let’s hurry to the Imperial Palace to find Hongyan and check when we should depart.” Xu Que patted Buttface’s head and headed for the Imperial Palace immediately.
He needed an exact time of departure so that he could promote his strength on schedule. For example, he wanted to top the layers of the newly-purchased People Killing Sword and the People Killing Book, which would guarantee his safety in the overseas area.
However, when they arrived at the Imperial Palace, they found the development of things was not as smooth as they had expected!
“What’s going on? Why did Hongyan leave first? She promised to wait for me!” Xu Que asked Zi Xuan in schock.
Xu Que and Buttface didn’t find the Water Empress in the Imperial Palace. Zi Xuan came to tell them that the Water Empress had left half a month earlier and headed overseas in advance.
“Xu, you aren’t allowed to call my sister’s name directly! She left in advance because of an urgent issue. You should blame yourself for your late arrival! Why did you go back to the Fire Nation? You went back to meet that Madam Ya, right?” Zi Xuan questioned Xu Que angrily, widening her eyes.
When he had killed the Fire Emperor, Zi Xuan had also been a witness, and she knew Li Bai was a disguise of Xu Que’s. Therefore, she understood clearly the relationship between Xu Que and Madam Ya.
Xu Que shook his head earnestly and said justly and severely, “Are you kidding? Am I a man like that? When you say these words, is your conscience even there? Come here, let me see your conscience!”
“Hm! I would never do that! Before her departure, my sister told me you could take an Ancient Teleportation Device. Also, she left a letter for you!” As Zi Xuan spoke, she took out a letter from her Storage Ring.
Receiving the letter, Xu Que didn’t open it immediately, but asked confusedly, “What Ancient Teleportation Device are you talking about?”
“Hm, you don’t know it, right?” Zi Xuan said proudly with a flash of cunning in her eyes. “It seems the Five Nations covers a big area. Actually, it’s just a lonely island in a vast sea! Anyone who wants to go to other continents overseas, like the East Continent, has to go across this vast sea! And it’s impossible to cover it with ordinary teleportation devices or by riding a flying sword.”
“Oh, I see! You really know a lot!” Xu Que said embarrassedly. In fact, he had learned this long ago.
“Of course!” Zi Xuan thought Xu Que didn’t know, so she continued to talk proudly. After all, these issues were inaccessible to ordinary people.
“Then you’re awesome! However, I want to know about the Ancient Teleportation Device!” Xu Que said bashfully.
“Just now, I told you that you couldn’t go across the vast sea with ordinary teleportation devices. Some powerhouses in the Infant Transformation Stage tried to fly across the vast sea by riding a flying sword. However, after hundreds of years, they still couldn’t find a continent and had to return the way they came. However, the Ancient Teleportation Device is different! It is said that this device came from ancient times and could be used to go across the vast sea. Among the Five Nations’ several sects, only the Water Nation has an Ancient Teleportation Device. It’s unknown to most people.” Zi Xuan explained proudly.
Hearing this, Buttface, who was not convinced, said disdainfully, “Boo, it’s just an advanced teleportation device! It’s funny that you call it an Ancient Teleportation Device! Moreover, it’s not as you said, that no one can go across the vast sea. The cultivation level of people in the Five Elements Mountain is too low to go across the vast sea. The Five Elements Mountain is so small that it’s very difficult for people overseas to find this place. Therefore, no people from overseas used to fly here before.”
Xu Que suddenly realized—it was no wonder that no cultivators from overseas had arrived in this area for so many years! Also, no powerhouse in this area could go overseas. The reason was the inconvenient transportation!
However, viewed from this angle, the Scarlet Yang Sect was quite remarkable, for they also had an Ancient Teleportation Device. Otherwise, how could Shang Wu’s aunt come from overseas? How could Shang Wu ask for reinforcement from overseas?
“Hum, what I said is still correct! I’m done with you. Xu, my sister has other things for you to do that were written in that letter, just read it!” After Buttface’s explanation, Zi Xuan was embarrassed, so she left hurriedly.
Buttface was quite proud and stood there with his chest out and jaw squared, like a rooster which had just won a cockfight.
Xu Que said disdainfully, “Buttface, I have to say you were too rude! Zi Xuan is such a lovely girl, couldn’t you have just behaved yourself and shown her due respect?”
“Sh*t, little Brat! You aren’t qualified to say that to me!” Buttface said immediately, widening his eyes.
Xu Que smiled coldly, “It’s been a long time since I beat you up last! It seems you miss it!”
Buttface felt a coldness on his neck, so he shouted hurriedly, “Just ignore the details! Come on, just read the letter left by the Water Empress! Maybe it’s a love letter!”
A love letter? Are you kidding me? You can’t change the subject with such a lousy excuse!
Xu Que couldn’t help twitching the corners of his mouth! What Buttface had said was really outrageous.
Knowing Jiang Hongyan’s personality, she would write a love letter when hell froze over!
However, he still opened the letter, wanting to know what message the Water Empress had left him.
However, after a short while, Xu Que put away the letter and sighed slightly.
It isn’t a love letter, as expected!
Although the Water Empress hadn’t said much in the letter, the information she provided was quite critical.
After all, overseas, Xu Que would be a stranger in a strange place. The Water Empress had said she had to leave earlier because of urgent issues, and had asked Xu Que to go overseas alone by taking the Ancient Teleportation Device.
This Ancient Teleportation Device only led to the East Continent. Therefore, when Xu Que arrived, he was asked to find a hotel of the name Bright Moon Hotel. He was told to live in that hotel until the Water Empress came to him after handling her issues. After that, they could go to the South Continent to find Duan Jiude together.
The rest of the words left by the Water Empress were nothing but asking Xu Que to keep a low profile overseas and exercise patience to avoid unnecessary trouble.
The Five Elements Mountain was sealed. People’s strengths were confined, and the Spiritual Qi in this area was also deficient. Therefore, the cultivation level of cultivators in the Five Elements Mountain was always low.
Cultivators from overseas had complete magic arts, and most of them had strengthened their physiques, which were quite powerful! In case Xu Que offended people with impressive backgrounds, it was highly probable for him to be pursued by many powerhouses, even super powerhouses at the Void Training or Form Synthesis Stages!
Xu Que had kept these issues in mind, for the Geoduck of the Sea Tribe had told him the same story.
However, Xu Que finally realized why he couldn’t sense the real strength of the Water Empress. The reason was that she had come from overseas, and her strength had been confined in the Five Elements Mountain!
Therefore, together with the consideration of the strength of the Sea Tribe, Xu Que finally figured out something!
In the Five Elements Mountain, he might be invincible.
However, if he went overseas, he could have been just above average or top-notch among the cultivators at the same cultivation level.
However, it might have been extremely difficult for him to keep killing opponents at the same cultivation level instantly, or to kill opponent whose cultivation level was higher than his without the assistance of magic artifacts.
“Alas, for such a long time, as the King of Acting Tough, I kept eliminating my enemies easily, and I slacked off unconsciously and forgot to enhance my cultivation level!” Xu Que sighed while shaking his head. It was quite rare for him to be introspective like this.
Buttface patted Xu Que’s shoulder and consoled him, “Little brat, don’t underestimate yourself! I’ve been living for such a long time, and among all the geniuses I’ve met, you could barely be in the top ten. However, as far as shamelessness, you are absolutely number one, and nobody does it better than you!”
All of a sudden, Xu Que swung his palm at Buttface’s forehead.
“Buttface, you’d better shut up, otherwise, I’ll leave without you! Oh, Hongyan said in her letter that the Ancient Teleportation Device is in her bedroom. Good, let’s go and look… No! Let’s go and have a look!”
