Hearing Xu Que, Liu Jingning was speechless.
The Heavenly Thunder of the Purple Cloud only existed as a legend. If any of the Holy Sons or Holy Virgins experienced it, they would definitely be frightened. As for the Ancient Catastrophe, I have not even seen it in my entire life.
In her view, Xu Que was really an extremely powerful man and a genius, who had the potential. But when it came to the thunder tribulation, she doubted that Xu Que could survive it.
“Where should we go next? I saw her once here, and now I’m sure that she’s not here anymore.”
“Stand aside please, I am about to throw my shoe.” Xu Que help up a shoe in his hand.
Liu Jingning was shocked.
“You mean you are going to find the path by throwing your shoe again?”
She thought Xu Que was simply joking and had no idea what he was doing. However, Xu Que had indeed found the way to this city by throwing his shoe…
“Yes,” Xu Que replied. “If you think I’m joking, do you have a better option? If you do, tell me then!”
Better option? No matter what, throwing the shoe up into the sky is too ridiculous for words… but, it seems that for now, it may be the best option.
Thinking this, Liu Jingning forced a smile and shook her head.
For the first time in her life, she felt hopeless.
Anyone who had known her before this would be stunned by her face.
As the Saint of the Utmost Happiness Faction and a powerful and ruthless woman, she could not think of a better way to find Jiang Hongyan.
“If you can’t think of a better option, then step aside please and behave yourself. I’ll show you what I am about to do!”
Xu Que summoned his System.
Behave myself? You’re much much younger than me, and you dare talk to me in a tone like that?
Liu Jingning frowned and was rather upset by the way Xu Que talked to her. Especially since, in her view, Xu Que was just a child.
In the past, she would have definitely taught Xu Que a lesson, but now she was just a bit upset. Soon, even this feeling faded away.
In Cultivation, it was always someone’s competence, not his age, that mattered. But even so, Xu Que should not talk to Liu Jingning in such a way.
During this journey, Liu Jingning had already started regarding Xu Que as someone who was on the same level as herself.
Xu Que activated his Lucky Aura and threw his shoe high up into the sky.
After a short while, the shoe landed pointing to the southeast.
Xu Que quickly turned off the Lucky Aura. “Southeast? What a pity,” he sighed. “Throwing the shoe, I can only tell the direction Jiang Hongyan is in, not the distance between her and I! But, anyway, we should head to the southeast.”
At this point, knowing Jiang Hongyan’s whereabouts was quite something for Xu Que.
“Southeast?! Crikey!” Liu Jingning exclaimed. “This can’t be possible! I think she must have gone to the place that she shouldn’t go to!”
“What do you mean?”
Xu Que stared at Liu Jingning and didn’t notice that he was still standing on the ground with one bare foot.
“Southeast of the Desolation City is the Celestial Burial Valley, which is one of the Nine Deathtraps!” Liu Jingning murmured with a rather serious face.
Hearing this, Buttface proudly said, “I’ve been to that place seven times, and I am still fine! There is no need to be afraid!”
“F*ck off!” Xu Que pushed Buttface aside. He thought Buttface must be boasting again.
When Xu Que heard the phrase “Nine Deathtraps,” he immediately recalled the “Heaven Dragon Cave” he heard about in the Stone-Cutting Convention since it was also one of the Nine Deathtraps. Even people from the Jiang Family and the Gong Family did not have the balls to step inside and only dared to dig out the stones on the outskirts of the Heaven Dragon Cave. Even this had cost the two Families many lives.
Therefore, Xu Que became very worried when he heard the phrase “Nine Deathtraps.”
Xu Que knew Jiang Hongyan well, and he was sure that she would go to the Celestial Burial Valley.
The reason Jiang Hongyan had left the Bright Moon Hotel was that she did not want to drag other innocent people into trouble.
“She must have gone to the Celestial Burial Valley!” Liu Jingning said abruptly.
“This stupid woman!” Xu Que said angrily. “She still cares about others even if she knows those people want nothing but to kill her. She is really naive!”
In the Cultivation World, showing mercy to one’s enemy would only bring destruction to himself.
Liu Jingning shook her head and sighed, “She doesn’t want to make other innocent people suffer!”
Xu Que was furious. “Apart from us, no one who comes here is innocent!”
“You are right!” Liu Jingning said, looking at Xu Que gently. “The leaders should all be hanged, but their offspring and their families should not be killed!”
“What?” Xu Que was confused.
“I can tell you still have not realized the seriousness of the misfortune that Hongyan could bring to people around her!” she sighed.
“Once the tribulation starts, the air of misfortune will permeate. Once someone intends to kill her, she is bound to fight back, and if he dies in a space full of the air of misfortune, his entire family and later generations will be misfortunate!”
Hearing this, Xu Que was stunned.
This is insane! If someone is killed in a space surrounded by the air of misfortune, his entire family is cursed?! Wait a minute, if this is true, then why there are still so many people trying to kill her?
“I know what you are thinking. In fact, not many people know this. I simply happened to learn of this when I met her not very long ago. She doesn’t want others to know about this and doesn’t want others to suffer.”
Hearing this, Xu Que was relieved and laughed.
She knows many people come here to kill her, but she doesn’t warn them about the consequences of the air of misfortune. She decides to hide, and if anyone who happens to find her and touch the air of misfortune, she will not be the one who suffers.
If I had this so-called ‘air of misfortune,’ I wouldn’t when I’m about to go through the tribulation. Instead, I would choose a place where my enemies gather . . .
“Let’s go! I guess she must be staying in the outskirts of the Celestial Burial Valley!”
“Sure!” Xu Que nodded.
I wonder how she’ll react when she sees me…
