Chapter 597: Don’t You Think It’s Rather Strange?

Buttface was startled by the sound.
Liu Jingning remained very calm, however, since she was still thinking about what Xu Que had just said to her.
He knows the consequences of getting close to Hongyan. Why on earth does he insist on finding her? Is he really not afraid of death?
Gradually, Liu Jingning was also moved by the sound of the song. Seeing Xu Que smiling, she was deeply surprised.
Is he being courageous or reckless?! Confident or arrogant?!
A mild breeze gently touched the hair on Xu Que’s forehead, and his clothes moved along with the breeze.
He turned around and smiled at Buttface, ready to praise the dog for turning on the recorder at the right time.
He’d managed to act tough again and earned 1,000 Acting Tough Points!
In the past, 1,000 Acting Tough Points might not have seemed a big deal to him. But now that he had no more than 10,000 Acting Tough Points, with the extra 1,000 Acting Tough Points he could use the Lucky Aura for one more second.
Xu Que was very happy.
“Great! We shall leave here now.” He picked up Buttface and flew into the sky.
Liu Jingning was about to say something but decided to keep silent.
She finally realized, after asking him over a dozen times not to look for Hongyan, that she could not change Xu Que’s mind.
“Jiang Hongyan,” Liu Jingning murmured, “I tried my best to stop him! If something bad happens to him, I can’t save him! I’m sorry!”
Then, she forced out a smile. “I used to pity you quite a lot! But this time, Hongyan, I envy you. You’ve got a man who would risk his life to be near you!”
She changed into a shadow and caught up with Xu Que.
They didn’t stop until the next day.
During their flight, Xu Que had met many troubles.
From time to time, some peculiar stones flew at him and a couple of times almost hit him in the eye.
Sometimes a lightning bolt would strike down at him; if it were not for his speedy dodging, he would have been hit by one.
What was strange was that every time Xu Que managed to dodge the lightning, the lightning would strike at a cultivator walking on the ground. It was as if the sky had guessed Xu Que would not be hit and so kept waiting until a cultivator was walking by.
Those struck by the lightning thought it was Xu Que casting it down, so they got extremely angry and began chasing after him.
Xu Que didn’t care and continued flying so quickly that the cultivators could not possibly catch up with him.
Buttface was playing with the recorder and somehow played the song called “Meeting in 1998.”
More and more cultivators were being accidentally hit by the lightning.
“You b*stard! How dare you sneak-attack me with lightning! Stop running!”
Then the sound of the song came: “Come come come! Let’s meet in 1998!”
Hearing this, the people struck by lightning exclaimed:
“Wait! Is he declaring a fight with us?! Young man, where shall we meet?!”
“Let’s meet in the beautiful spring, with the gentle breeze blowing; let’s meet in the best time of our life . . . ”
“What?! What on earth do you mean?!”
“Our heart is connected with each other, every year, we come here and meet with each other, no matter where I am or how far I am away from you, I will always come to meet you . . . ”
Hearing this, all the cultivators were stunned.
Impertinence! My heart is not connected with you!
‘Meeting you every year? No matter where you are you will come and meet us?!’
This is all bulls*it!
Xu Que was also angry. “F*ck! Turn off the recorder. Otherwise, I will smash it into pieces!”
Buttface quickly turned the device off and hid it. He loved the recorder very much and was afraid that Xu Que really meant what he said.
Xu Que was still flying in the sky with Buttface, who kept singing his version of the music he’d played earlier.
“Come come come! I want to sleep with your father!
“Come come come! I also want to sleep with your father!”
At last, Xu Que managed to get rid of those cultivators.
Liu Jingning was just behind Xu Que and was terribly troubled by what had just happened to Xu Que.
She sent him a voice message.
“Little Xu Que, I think we’d better stop and take a rest. Don’t you think what just happened to you is really strange?!”
“I don’t think so! You told me I am cursed and that I’d become misfortunate! So what?!”
“I don’t mean that—I mean the cultivators!”
“What do you mean?!”
Hearing this, Xu Que stopped and looked at Liu Jingning, puzzled.
“Right beneath us is a place where few cultivators come since this area is the most desolate place in the Eastern Continent. Normally, you can’t spot a regular man, not to mention the cultivators. The reason Jiang Hongyan chose this place is that she doesn’t want to drag anyone into trouble after she starts to go through the Mystery Land Trial. In spite of this, we’ve seen quite a lot cultivators.”
Hearing this, Xu Que was surprised. “So you mean there couldn’t be so many cultivators here?!”
Is it possible that because I am cursed, wherever I go people will follow me and get into trouble with me even if they don’t want to?
Liu Jingning nodded. “It’s peculiar enough to spot even one cultivator here, and at this point, we’ve met around a hundred. Something must be not right!”
Xu Que looked around and found nothing but barren land. The Spiritual Qi here was also very thin, and this made the location not an ideal place for cultivators to do the cultivation.
There could only be two reasons for so many cultivators to be here.
One possibility was that a treasured object had been spotted here, and then this attracted many cultivators. The other possibility was that they had probably come here to kill Jiang Hongyan.
Xu Que had come to save Jiang Hongyan’s life.
