Chapter 644: Acquaintances From the Five Elements Mountain

A Teleportation Device could be used to travel between the East Continent and the South Continent.
What Xu Que didn’t expect was that he’d spent over one month in taking the Teleportation Device to the South Continent!
The distance between the two continents was too large. He might need ten years or half a century to cover this distance by flying, and now he could only walk on the ground!
Xu Que didn’t spend a long time in the East Continent. Although he had been to many places, these places were only a drop in the bucket for the entire East Continent! For example, the Celestial Burial Valley and its peripheral area where Xu Que spent half a year was only a small dot in the East Continent!
Now he’d spent over one month by taking the Teleportation Device, which not only surprised him but also made him accept this part of cultivation life: that time was meaningless!
For cultivators, ten years or twenty years went by in the blink of an eye—forget one or two months.
After all, what they pursued was a life not lasting hundreds or thousands of years, but a life that lasted forever!
“Alas! When can I reach a stage where I can freely travel this world with only one step?” Xu Que exclaimed when he came out of the Teleportation Device. However, his heart was filled with anticipation for the future.
Now his real body hadn’t started the cultivation yet. However, his real body already had the Taoist Connotation, which bestowed a bright future upon him!
Buttface, who was quite scornful of Xu Que’s exclamation, shook his head. “I used to cover all kinds of distances at a slow pace. When I become the Magic Dragon, I will blow off the entire East Continent with a sneeze! That will be a great disaster!”
“You won’t die if you don’t bluff! When I was an ordinary person in those years, I could kill hundreds of millions of lives by just moving my hand!” Xu Que replied calmly. Then, he started to look around.
Now they had arrived in the South Continent. However, the Teleportation Device was located in the desolate mountains. When they stepped out of the Teleportation Device, they could vaguely hear the thunderous howling and roaring of demonic Beasts in the mountains.
“Those are not howls or roars! Just some demonic beasts breathing!” Buttface said solemnly after listening for a moment.
Xu Que was surprised. “How can their breathing be so thunderous? Sh*t! Does that Demonic Beast have rhinitis?”
When Xu Que was in the East Continent, he’d only dealt with human beings and had seldom come across demonic beasts or half-human-half-demons. He didn’t expect to encounter demonic beasts before humans after arriving in the South Continent.
“Heh-heh, this Teleportation Device is located on the verge of a deathtrap in the South Continent—very dangerous!” Buttface laughed confidently. “However, under the protection of your Taoist Body, as well as my mighty deterrent, you have nothing to fear!”
Xu Que slapped Buttface’s forehead with his hand. “Wake up! Wake up now! Don’t try to act tough in front of me! Just show me the way!”
Buttface was stunned. “Holy sh*t! Was I just hit by an ordinary person? How could this be?”
“If you keep talking, I will ask my Taoist Body to beat you up!” Xu Que threatened.
“Damn! I made a mistake! I thought you were an ordinary person, so I relaxed my vigilance . . . ” Buttface murmured in a recalcitrant manner. Then, he walked out and started to check the terrain and find the way.
A moment later, Buttface found the way and pointed southeast. “I got it! Come this way and we’ll arrive at the entrance of the Mystery Land!”
Without any hesitation, Xu Que summoned his Taoist Body and asked it to fly them to their destination on lightning.
Xu Que chose this Teleportation Device because it was closer to the Mystery Land.
It was still very far.
After flying for seven days and nights, Xu Que and Buttface managed to fly out of those desolated mountains. On their way, they encountered some flying demonic beasts, which were all killed by his Taoist Body!
Half a month later, they arrived at a place outside a valley and landed on the ground.
According to Buttface’s description, this valley was the entrance of the Mystery Land, which opened once every 100 years. Every time the Mystery Land opened it was only for three years. After three years, everyone in the Mystery Land was teleported out automatically, and the Mystery Land disappeared. The entire area then turned into a boundless plain!
However, when Xu Que and Buttface arrived, the entrance of the valley was packed with people.
Upon closer inspection, they found these people were standing with members of their families and sects instead of randomly.
These people had set up many tents surrounded by flags with the emblems of their families and sects. At first glance, it was just like the Sword Competition on Mount Hua in the Chinese Kung Fu novels!
Xu Que immediately noticed many families and sects from the East Continent. There were also a lot of strange faces and organizations which probably came from the South Continent, the West Desert and the North Sea. He also noticed a lot of demonic beasts and Half-Human-Half-Demon. The scene was quite spectacular!
These people had their eyes fixed on the entrance to the valley, where a mountainous stone tablet stood. On the tablet, numerous characters, which indicated the names of the families, sects, and persons, were glowing. The ranking of the names kept changing. Some names dimmed down from time to time. The stone tablet was just like a ranking list!
“It’s just a Mystery Land. How could it attract all the families and sects in the four continents here? Is it really necessary to be so grand?” Xu Que asked, confused.
“Little brat,” Buttface replied with a smirk, “don’t underestimate this Mystery Land! It used to be an ancient celestial mountain filled with celestials. Later, it was abandoned. There are altogether nine layers. The higher the layer is, the more precious the items there are. I even heard that the summit of the ninth layer is packed with numerous celestial artifacts and elixirs! It’s a pity that I only reached the third layer by exhausting all mental efforts last time.”
“You only reached the third layer after three years’ effort?” Xu Que was shocked.
“Little brat,” Buttface said bitterly, “you’ll understand the size of the Mystery Land when you enter. I climbed to the third layer last time as one in a million. I can guarantee that the highest achievement of everyone entering the Mystery Land will be the second layer!”
“You’re too weak!” Xu Que said and started to bluff. “If I still had my cultivation, I would reach the summit of the ninth layer immediately and pee into the wind!”
Buttface smiled disdainfully. “Little brat, if you can reach the fourth layer, then I can turn into a pig someday!”
“Really? Then you’ll be worse than a pig or a dog in the future, right?” Xu Que asked in surprise.
“F*ck!” Buttface cursed angrily.
However, Xu Que stopped arguing with Buttface. He stepped toward the valley and walked into the crowd.
Instead of going into the Mystery Land hurriedly, he decided to inquire about Duan Jiude’s whereabouts first.
According to the news, this was the place where Duan Jiude spread his words, which meant he was somewhere not far away.
Unfortunately, Xu Que wandered around the crowds without meeting any acquaintances.
After all, the Mystery Land had been opened for three months. People like Liu Jingning had long entered the Mystery Land.
In desperation, Xu Que had to take the second best route by finding the Utopia Faction.
However, after a lengthy search, he also failed to find the Utopia Faction. This place was too large—thousands of families and sects were gathering here.
“What? Is that you, Lord Xu?” A surprised voice came from behind Xu Que.
Xu Que was stunned. When he turned around, he was dumbfounded.
He saw acquaintances from the Five Elements Mountain!
