The radiance of the spell formation was becoming more and more dazzling. The shiny runes were rotating on the giant Spirit Stone Disk like small black fish swimming in a jade lake. Finally, all the runes gathered together and the device was covered by a beam of white light. The air twisted abruptly, blurring Xu Que and Buttface’s figures.
“Little Zi Xuan, goodbye!” Xu Que said.
“Take care!” Zi Xuan replied.
Finally, Zi Xuan saw Xu Que and Buttface disappear.
Everything quieted down as the dust settled. The giant Spirit Stone Disk became dim and the Secret Room was empty again. Zi Xuan felt as empty as the Secret Room she stood in. Shaking her head with a sad smile, she turned around and left.
Meanwhile, Xu Que and Buttface were dropped into a black void.
This was the first time that Xu Que had used such a big Teleportation Device. The tearing force of the void on his body was stronger than any force he had felt while using other Teleportation Devices. He theorized that cultivators whose cultivation level was lower than the Infant Transformation Stage wouldn’t have been able to stand the strength of this Teleportation Device!
Buttface was unphased. With his extremely powerful physique, it was clear that he felt nothing out of the ordinary. He opened his package of food and started to eat.
However, Buttface didn’t have much time to eat, for this Ancient Teleportation Device was a lot faster than ordinary Teleportation Devices. The darkness around them only lasted for an instant before Xu Que saw a spot of light. The light was becoming larger and larger. They were about to arrive in the East Continent!
“Heh heh! We are getting close,” Buttface said. “Little brat, you should be careful here. I had lived in the East Continent ten thousand years ago. Wow… it’s already been ten thousand years! I guess the guys who chased me out of this place have either become sages or ancestors of the people here!” Buttface said excitedly.
“Ten thousand years?” Xu Que sneered, squinting his eyes. “I am afraid all of the people who remember you are dead now! Buttface, now that we are in the East Continent, you must behave yourself! If you make troubles, I will stew you!”
“D*mn! Compared to you, I am a saint!” Buttface retorted. He couldn’t hold a candle to Xu Que when it came to trouble-making.
A beam of white light descended upon the East Continent.
The tearing force on Xu Que’s body was beginning to fade. Xu Que could now see the landscape – there were buildings and pavilions close by, willows off to the side, and mountains and rivers in the distance.
Finally, they stepped out of the void and onto the ground.
All at once, the surrounding Spiritual Qi gushed into Xu Que’s pores like a flood. He was suddenly refreshed. No wonder people from overseas always complained about the sparse Spiritual Qi in Five Elements Mountain. The power of the Spiritual Qi here was so intense!
The five Original Infants in his body were absorbing the Spiritual Qi like crazy. It was a pity that Xu Que couldn’t effectively upgrade his cultivation level just by absorbing Spiritual Qi like this. Cultivating through absorbing Spiritual Qi was extremely inefficient compared to cultivating through gaining experience by killing people.
“Nice! What a wonderful place this is!” Xu Que exclaimed as he looked around.
The Teleportation Device had transported them to a villa. This was a nice change of pace, for Teleportation Devices usually dropped people off in the middle of a wilderness! The villa was very quiet. It was also very old and shabby. It looked as if it had been abandoned for a long time.
Xu Que and Buttface noticed that they were standing on top of another giant Spirit Stone Dish. However, this disk had many large cracks in it. It seemed that this disk was no longer functional.
“Someone deliberately damaged this Spirit Stone Dish. It can’t be used for teleportation anymore, only for landing,” Buttface said.
Xu Que nodded slightly. This Teleportation Device was in such an eye-catching place. If it were still functional, the peace in Five Elements Mountain would have long been disrupted.
“D*mn! It’s been so long!” Buttface said. “Everything in the East Continent looks so strange to me! I feel like I just woke up from the world’s longest nap!”
“Buttface, How do you know everything is changed without going beyond this villa?” Xu Que asked, shocked. “Where did you get this magical power?”
“Because I remember this place. I was here ten thousand years ago. I remember that this place was quite resplendent and magnificent! It belonged to a big organization! Many sovereigns used to gather in this place. It is a pity this organization faded away,” Buttface exclaimed.
Xu Que shook his head in disdain. He couldn’t trust Buttface’s stories about his history. Xu Que gazed at the desolate mountains which surrounded the villa. He gave an irritated sigh.
“Come on, Buttface! Since you know this place, lead the way to the Bright Moon Hotel!”
“So many years have passed. How do you expect me to know the way?” Buttface said helplessly.
Xu Que was quite depressed. The Water Empress told him in her letter to wait for her at the Bright Moon Hotel. However, she never mentioned the exact location of the hotel.
“Looks like we have to ask for directions,” Xu Que said calmly.
Despite being a stranger in a foreign place, Xu Que was not nervous. In fact, he was a bit excited. After all, he had come a long way by acting tough in a new place once. Who’s to say he couldn’t do it again?
“Little brat, it looks pretty desolate here, but I’m sure there are still some people around,” Buttface said, looking around. Then, he spotted something. “Look! There is smoke spiraling up into the sky over there! Someone must be cooking something!” Buttface exclaimed, his mouth watering. What an eating machine this dog was!
Xu Que turned to look at the trail of smoke.
“Are you crazy? That smoke is too dense to be someone cooking,” Xu Que said, his lip curling. “That smoke is from the God d*amn flames of war! People are fighting over there!”
Xu Que summoned some lightning to stand on and dashed towards the wooded mountain.
“Wait! Wait for me!” Buttface said, following him in a hurry.
The smoke in the woods became denser as they approached its source. When they arrived, they only found ashes. It seemed the combat had already ended. Only a few embers were still burning.
“D*mn! We are too late!” Buttface complained.
“It would have been useless to come earlier. Look at these embers. It looks like this fire was burning the whole night. Even the bodies here are badly charred,” Xu Que said, shaking his head.
Over one hundred charred bodies were lying on the ground. They had been burned so badly that they were totally unidentifiable.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Several light beams whizzed above some nearby clouds. Some people were riding flying swords.
“Eh? Someone is coming. We can ask for directions!” Buttface said, delighted.
Xu Que nodded. Then he looked up and shouted at the light beams in the sky.
“Freeze! Hold up!”
A formidable presence instantly descended from the sky. The presence was so strong that Xu Que and Buttface almost fell to their knees.
What’s going on?
Xu Que and Buttface looked at each other. They were both terrified.
The people in the sky were extremely powerful. Xu Que’s Soul Strength could sense that at least one of these guys was an expert cultivator at the Void Training Stage. All of these guys were powerhouses.
The beams of light landed on the ground. The halo of light then faded to reveal their bodies. Three people with veiled faces were now standing before them. Given their clothing, it was evident that these three figures were women.
The women on either side of the center figure were old but powerful. However, the lady standing in the middle looked quite extraordinary. She was dressed in white and was very young, but she was at the Void Training Stage, as were the two old ladies.
The lady in white fixed her eyes on Xu Que.
“Young man, who are you? And why are you here?” she asked calmly.
Xu Que’s eyelids twitched a bit.
D*mn! It’s just our luck to encounter such powerful opponents just after arriving here.
He knew he could be easily defeated by a cultivator at the Void Training Stage, even with the assistance of the People Killing Sword and People Killing Book of All Layers. Taking on one opponent of this caliber would mean certain defeat, let alone three of them.
“Little brat, let’s just retreat,” Buttface said carefully.
“Run away? You are a coward! If you want to be a powerhouse, you should be fearless!” Xu Que scolded loudly and disdainfully.
Buttface gasped. He looked at Xu Que, dumbfounded. What a fool Xu Que was!
You told me not to cause any trouble, but now, here you are, causing trouble! Buttface thought. They are powerhouses at the Void Training Stage! How dare you be so arrogant? You are really impressive, buddy!
“A powerhouse should be fearless…” the lady in white repeated, smiling slightly. Her eyes were still fixed on Xu Que.
“Young man, what did you shout to us just now? Do you want to rob us?” the lady in white asked abruptly, her voice cold.
“Little brat, don’t do anything stupid!” Buttface advised hurriedly. His knees were bent, ready to run at any moment.
“I know what I am doing and I have nothing to fear!” Xu Que replied with a fearless but calm tone. He then smiled at the women respectfully.
“You misheard me, young lady! I shouted for you to hold on. I didn’t say anything about a hold-up. As a principled scholar, I examine my integrity three times a day. I would never hold someone up!” he said.
“By the way, young lady, have you ever met a fairy maiden before?”
