Obviously, Dong Genji did not want to prevent others from stopping Jiang Hongyan going through her tribulation, and he did not mind others destroying her cultivation. This demonstrated that he also wanted to eliminate the misfortune Jiang Hongyan caused.
Once Jiang Hongyan’s cultivation was destroyed, she would become an ordinary woman, and she would no longer pose a threat to any faction or Family in the entire Eastern Continent.
Jiang Hongyan had always been the most talented among her peers, and no one had ever surpassed her no matter how hard they tried. Neither had Dong Genji, and most importantly, he had failed to win Jiang Hongyan’s heart.
Now Jiang Hongyan had returned and Dong Genji could still not force her to give in—even if she was just in the highest level of the Infant Transformation Stage.
But if Jiang Hongyan’s cultivation were to be destroyed, Dong Genji could easily get her.
Now that everyone else was determined to take her life, if Dong Genji managed to save her life, there was a great chance he could finally win her heart.
This had made many present cultivators quite envious since they all wanted to win Jiang Hongyan’s heart—she was such a beautiful and noble woman!
But few people present dared to oppose Dong Genji since it seemed a bit stupid to fight for a woman with the risk of offending people from the Carefree Building.
“If we manage to save Jiang Hongyan’s life,” Huang Zaitian said, “we would be very willing to allow ten cultivators to get into the Carefree Building. If anyone dares to contradict with us, we’ll definitely make him suffer!” The next minute, he gradually disappeared.
Hearing this, the people present began to change their minds. Getting into the Carefree Building was really quite something! Everyone knew that it was extremely difficult to get in. The people in the Carefree Building were all very arrogant and looked down upon Holy Sons and Holy Virgins who they deemed weren’t talented enough.
Although those extremely powerful Holy Sons and Holy Virgins did not care about the Carefree Building at all, some of them, and even the powerful Elders, started to change their minds.
If a disciple of a certain Faction or Family joined the Carefree Building, that Faction or Family would gain a powerful ally.
Suddenly, the three old men of the three big Families, as well as other powerful cultivators of various Factions, looked at each other. They gently moved their lips and began to send each other voice messages.
“Ten people have the opportunity to get into the Carefree Building. This is really quite something. I think we should consider keeping Jiang Hongyan alive?”
Xu Que, Liu Jingning and Buttface were about to enter the Celestial Burial Valley.
Between two huge mountains, there was the big entrance of the Celestial Burial Valley.
For years, no one had ever dared to get close to the entrance . . .
When Xu Que and Liu Jingning arrived at the entrance, they found hundreds of people gathering in front of it. Most of them had been sent by the Influential Families or Factions to see what was going on.
Not far away from the entrance, there was a wonderfully beautiful and noble woman sitting among the flowers.
A woman who with beauty that no one could match, and a woman targeted by almost everyone in the Eastern Continent.
“Hongyan!” Xu Que exclaimed and landed.
Xu Que had not seen Hongyan for a few months, and he was surprised to find that Hongyan had grown more powerful and beautiful than when she was back in the Five Elements Mountain.
But soon, the smile on Xu Que’s face froze.
Jiang Hongyan was sitting rather close to the entrance, which was rather dangerous. Just a few meters away, there stood a handsome young man.
Jiang Hongyan was focused on her cultivation and did not notice what was happening around her.
The handsome young man stood in front of her had his eyes glued to Hongyan, as if he were admiring something that belonged to him.
Liu Jingning was surprised. “I never thought he would come here!” Then she turned to Xu Que and said, “Little Que Que, you have met your match this time! You know what, Hongyan never lacks pursuers!”
“So what?! That young man—compared to me—is nothing!” Xu Que sneered. If it weren’t for not wanting to disturb Hongyan, he would have already gone forward to punch the guy.
“He’s Dong Genji, the most powerful Holy Son among us and the leader of the Carefree Building! Even I can’t beat him!” Liu Jingning smiled at Xu Que. She found this situation, in which Xu Que had met his match for the first time, rather interesting.
Obviously, she meant that Xu Que could not possibly beat him.
“Dong Genji? What a strange name!” Xu Que sneered.
Hearing this, Liu Jingning rolled her eyes.
“Your name sounds even more strange. By the way, when Dong Genji was born, there was a piece of jade inside his mouth. On the surface of the jade, there were two characters, ‘根基,’ or ‘Genji!’ This even shocked the Old Man of Heaven Secret. He came to see the baby and predicted his future. Can you guess what he said?”
“The baby is crooked, but can still be saved?”
“What?!” Liu Jingning asked, confused.
“A new-born baby with a piece of jade inside his mouth—don’t you think he would be choked to death?”
“Stop talking in nonsense! The Old Man of Heaven Secret said Dong Genji was an Immortal Cultivator in his last life and that he’s going to become the foundation of the Cultivation World!”
Xu Que stared at her in silence for a moment. “Never mind!” he finally said. “I have to see how Hongyan is. I want to make some preparations for her before her tribulation comes.”
Xu Que waved his hand and headed to the entrance.
Liu Jingning did not say anything and followed him.
However, Buttface suddenly got frightened while staring at the entrance; he was trying to recall something and failed to do so. Then he stopped thinking and hurried to catch up with Xu Que.
“Jingning, I never thought you would come here!” Dong Gengji ignored Xu Que and smiled at Liu Jingning.
Still, Xu Que managed to catch his lewd smile, even if it only lasted for a few seconds.
“You hypocritical dirty man!” Xu Que cursed.
Liu Jingning was used to such lewd smiles from men. She had also noticed Dong Genji’s smiling and knew why Xu Que had cursed. But she didn’t address it and just smiled.
“Dong Genji, I knew you would be here!” Liu Jingning she said.
Xu Que slowly walked past him with an indifferent look.
At this moment, Dong Genji looked at Xu Que and spoke with surprise. “Nice to meet you, my name is Dong Genji. I am sorry, you are?”
Liu Jingning knew Xu Que was in a bad mood. She feared he was about to quarrel with Dong Genji.
Just when she was about to introduce him to Dong Genji, Xu Que suddenly beamed. “You are very polite. My name is Wang Sicong, I come from the Exploding Heavens Faction.”
“I see!” Dong Genji smiled back. “I hear over you wherever I go!”
“No way,” Xu Que replied politely. “I am not that famous.”
Seeing this, Liu Jingning was surprised, she was not surprised by Dong Genji’s words since she knew he had always been an arrogant and hypocritical man. Rather, she was shocked by Xu Que—just a few seconds ago, Xu Que called Dong Genji a hypocritical man.
Compared to Dong Genji, he’s the hypocrite.
“Brother Dong, I see you standing here. Are you protecting my Hongyan? If you are, I really appreciate your doing so!” Xu Que said.
Hearing this, both Dong Genji and Liu Jingning were stunned.
Dong Genji was a bit annoyed, but the next moment he shifted his mood and smiled.
“I see! Hongyan has spoken to me about you. You are Xiao Wang Ba?”
Hearing this, Liu Jingning immediately knew Dong Genji was verbally abusing Xu Que and forced out a smile.
So did the few hundred cultivators standing in the back.
They had been watching what was going on between Xu Que and Dong Genji and were deeply impressed by Dong Genji’s reactions.
No wonder he became the leader of the Carefree Building and made a bunch of talented cultivators follow him . . .
“F*ck him! Xu Que, he just verbally abused you—you’re not angry about this?!” Buttface said angrily.
The atmosphere became awkward.
Right at this moment, Buttface got an idea and looked at Dong Genji.
“So, you are Xiao Jiba?”
Hearing this, Liu Jingning almost burst into laughter.
Dong Genji’s face instantly turned dark; he coldly glanced at Buttface.
“How dare you!” Xu Que angrily scolded Buttface.
Hearing this, both Liu Jingning and Buttface were shocked.
What is wrong with you?! I was helping you for god’s sake!
At the same time, Xu Que turned around and smiled at Dong Genji.
“I am sorry. He was kidding just now, I promise I will teach him a lesson later! In fact, I have also heard my Hongyan mention you—you are Genji Ba?”
