In fact, it wasn’t the first time for Xu Que to go to the Water Empress’s bedroom.
The last time he had been there, he hadn’t seen any Ancient Teleportation Device. From the letter, Xu Que knew that in the bedroom, there was a secret room where there was an Ancient Teleportation Device that led to the East Continent.
This Ancient Teleportation Device was even older than the Palace. More precisely, the entire Palace had been built around the Ancient Teleportation Device.
This was a big secret that only few knew about, and obviously, the Water Empress trusted Xu Que, that was why she told him about it.
The switch to enter the secret room was hidden in a common bookshelf. Xu Que found the switch and gently moved it. The next minute, the bookshelf slid to one side. Due to the protection array, the sound of the moving bookshelf was silent.
Xu Que and Buttface then walked into the secret room.
Inside the secret room, there was only a huge round Spiritual Stone on the ground. It looked like a staircase that was covered with many peculiar array patterns.
“Is this the so-called Ancient Teleportation Device?” Xu Que was a bit surprised. He had thought the Ancient Teleportation Device would be something more imposing and complex…
The Ancient Teleportation Device was even simpler than a normal Teleportation Device, and the patterns on it were the same as those on the floor in the Imperial Tomb of the Fire Nation. The difference was that the patterns there could only be used one time, while the patterns on the Ancient Teleportation Device would never disappear once they were carved on its surface. To activate it, one had to use a Spiritual Stone of top quality.
“I feel like I’ve seen this Ancient Teleportation Device before, like the one I made when I was young!” Buttface suddenly said, beginning to check it.
If he’s telling the truth, then he must have lived for thousands of years!
“F*ck! I can’t remember it clearly!” Buttface looked as if he was thinking really hard, and Xu Que could tell that he wasn’t lying.
Xu Que didn’t say anything. Buttface had too many secrets, and he was not able to be seen through. His body was extremely powerful, and he could easily lose his memories.
“If you can’t recall it, then don’t think about it. Now that we’ve found the Ancient Teleportation Device, we should leave and make some preparations for our departure. We should inform the three thousand soldiers of the Snow City and tell them to go back to the Snow City, then we’ll head to the Eastern Continent tonight.”
Xu Que was full of anticipation about his approaching journey to the Eastern City, since he finally had the opportunity to act tough and show his strength to more people.
Meanwhile, outside the Snow City…
The void of a certain area twisted, and a few figures appeared.
They all frowned, looking rather indifferent.
They looked around and showed their disgust.
Among them, a young man of the Infant Transformation Stage said coldly, “I have been told by Shang Wu that the Spiritual Qi here in the Five Element Mountain is rather weak compared to that in the Eastern Continent. I don’t know, this place is just disappointing.”
“Third Master, you are quite right. This is not the perfect place to cultivate at all. Besides, this place is under the restriction of a seal. Even our strength is restricted to a certain degree. We should finish our business and go back as soon as possible,” an old man of the Infant Transformation Stage said and smiled.
The young man nodded gently and headed towards the Snow City.
All of a sudden, the Spiritual Qi given out from their bodies quickly spread into the city.
Everyone except Shang Wu was surprised, so Shang Wu happily walked out of the city to greet them.
“Cousin! You are finally here!” he welcomed the young man with great excitement.
The young man smiled. “We made our departure as soon as we received your letter. When you were in the Gong Family, you always said that the Snow City was a piece of crap, but even so, you still wanted to come back here. So I came here to see why you still choose to come back when you know it’s not ideal. Forgive me, but I have to say this place is, indeed, a piece of crap.”
“Cousin, I only miss Situ Hai Tang, not this sh*thole! When I get married to her, I’ll go back to the Gong Family.” Shang Wu forced out a smile.
The young man nodded. “Let’s get down to the real business. You mentioned a young man called Zhuge Liang who wanted to destroy our Scarlet Yang Sect, where is he now?”
“Cousin, that Zhuge Liang is as treacherous as a fox! After he heard I asked for help from the Gong Family, he ran away to the Imperial City immediately. I’m sorry to say that my father has been tricked by him and still thinks he is a nice man.” Shang Wu shook his head.
The young man frowned. “So you mean we have to go to the Imperial City?”
“But we’d better not tell my father. He would definitely stop us if he knew about this,” Shang Wu complained.
“Don’t worry, I know what we should do. Don’t say anything, no matter what I say later. Anyway, anyone who dares to bully you is my enemy, whether he intends to destroy the Scarlet Yang Sect or not. I will kill him, you can count on me for that.”
After a while, Shang Ling hurriedly came and was surprised to see the young man.
“Xiao Feng, why on earth are you here? You came back with your mother?”
The young man, Gong Feng, bowed to Shang Ling and replied, “My dear uncle, my mother hasn’t come with me this time. We came here today to help you to bring the Scarlet Yang Sect out of danger.”
“Bringing the Scarlet Yang Sect out of danger? What are you talking about?” Shang Ling was stunned, with no idea what was going on.
Then Gong Feng began to elaborate on what had transpired between him and Shang Wu.
“Shang Wu! How dare you! How dare you!”
“Father! You’ve been tricked by Zhuge Liang! He had bullied me for the last few days, and even said he would take Situ Hai Tang away from me and destroy our Scarlet Yang Sect!” Shang Wu said angrily.
“You…” Shang Ling was so angry that he couldn’t even say one more word.
He had thought his son had changed for the better, but he was still the same person who always asked for help from the Gong Family whenever he was in trouble. This time, he had never thought his son would ask the Gong Family to send people there and waste tons of Spiritual Stones to do so…
“Uncle, please calm down. Let me deal with this business alone. Believe me, I’ll try to find out what has really happened before I make any move,” Gong Feng smiled and said calmly.
