Chapter 733: There’s No Time Like The Present!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
It is yet another day where the Four Great Continents seem surprisingly boisterous. With the announcement of Xu Que’s challenge letter, countless cultivators found their hearts excited by his words. Many had thought that the whole letter was written just to put on a tough act; nobody truly believed that in the future they would be strong enough to launch an attack on the Xuanzhen Continent. However, it didn’t stop their hearts from pounding passionately at what Xu Que had written at the end of the letter.
“Invaders of our Continent! We will hunt you down, no matter how far away you may be!”
“How powerful and magnificent this sentence is!”
“Ah, I wish that our Four Great Continents would be truly powerful enough to say that to the outsiders!”
“I wish that I’d still be alive to see that day come! It makes my heart proud just thinking about it!”
“But what’s up with Duan Jiude and Buttface?”
They understood that it was a joint letter, but what the hell is with Duan Jiude for simply writing that “Xu Que is right”? Doesn’t he have anything better to say?
“I’d say that even Duan Jiude had written better than Buttface! Look at what Buttface has written. Howl, howl, howl? Is he addicted to acting like a wolf?”
At the same time, in the North Sea, at the Roc Tribe, a well-endowed, but cold-faced, pretty madame sat in the hall. If Xu Que had been here, he would recognize this pretty madame right away. She is none other than the Eighth Elder of the Roc Tribe, the person who made him pledge to “screw the Rocs”– Yi Bamei!
For some time now, she had been staring blankly at the letter in her hands. The more she looked at it, the more confused she got. She suddenly lifted her gaze and her beautiful eyes glanced toward the ragged cultivator who had delivered the letter. With an expression as cold as stone, she asked, “Fellow cultivator, you mean to say that Xu Que requested that they open the small gap on the shackle, just so that we could deliver this challenge letter to the Xuanzhen Continent?”
“Yes, Eighth Elder, that is correct!” the cultivator bowed and forced a slight smile.
Yi Bamei contemplated for a moment, then nodded, “Bring my reply to Xu Que. Consider this letter delivered, but we also hope that he will practice in secluded meditation seriously from now on. We’ll be counting on him for the battle five years from now!”
“I have received your words,” responded the cultivator, as he excused himself.
In the East Continent, at the Utmost Happiness Faction, in the Sect meeting room, the Sect Leader of the Utmost Happiness Faction sat on a high chair, and in his hands was a copy of the challenge letter. Once he had finished it, he sighed with emotion, “The heavens do favor young friend Xu! He is one of a kind, the only chosen one, who has finally appeared after tens of thousands of years. Our decision to betroth Jingning to him is right. It will be a good marriage.”
“Uhm, Sect Leader, the Holy Virgin is still locked up in the Sacred Grounds, at the back of the mountains. When should we let her out?” asked an Elder.
‘Oh? Is she still kicking up a fuss?” the Sect Leader asked with a frown.
The Elder shook his head, confused, “Strange. She used to be so loud in the beginning that even our disciples dared not go near her. However, she hasn’t seemed to move at all these last few days. Psst, Sect Leader, could it be that she has gotten into some kind of accident…?”
The Sect Leader laughed it off. “Haha, good, good! It looks like the young lass finally understands my good intentions. That’s enough, and you are not to disturb her during this period. Let her concentrate on practicing the Arts of Carefree Heavenly Desires!”
Upon hearing what he said, all the Elders present in the hall rustled.
“Sect Leader! Don’t tell us that you taught the Arts of Carefree Heavenly Desires – the exclusive arts passed down through the generations – to the Holy Virgin?”
“This…this is against the rules, Sect Leader!”
“Shut up, what do you know!” snorted the Sect Leader as he steeled his tiger-like gaze. “If I don’t teach her the Arts of Carefree Heavenly Desires, how can she keep Xu Que under her thumb in the future? A hooligan like Xu Que has always acted underhandedly. What if he bullies Jingning? Our Holy Virgin must not suffer when she marries him!”
“Uhh! Though Sect Leader, we thought that the Arts of Carefree Heavenly Desires don’t enhance one’s strength that much? They are only passed on to preserve the beauty of leaders through the generations. He who practices it will become more handsome; while she who practices it will become prettier and prettier. Sect Leader…oh!”
The Elder stopped mid-sentence, as if finally realizing what he had just said, and his eyes widened in surprise. Soon the whole hall fell silent. The Elders looked at each other. The relevance had shaken their hearts.
Holy Virgin Liu was already one of, if not the most, beautiful lady in the Four Great Continents. She is even comparable to Jiang Hongyan. If she practiced the Arts of Carefree Heavenly Desires, wouldn’t her beauty be unrivaled then? When Xu Que saw her, wouldn’t he be utterly mesmerized?
Once they had reached that conclusion, the Elders couldn’t help but laugh. Hell! Way to go, Sect Leader! In deploying underhanded methods, you are not to be trifled with either!
Meanwhile, at the same time, in an inn within the Ancient City of the East Continent,
Xu Que, Duan Jiude, and the gang discussed their plans for the next five years. Duan Jiude was the first to suggest that they should enter the South Continent Mystery Land for secluded meditation, as the Spiritual Qi there is more robust than all the other places in the Four Great Continents. Also, now that the shackles have weakened, he could forcefully pry the Mystery Land entrance open. They wouldn’t have to wait for every 100 years to enter.
However, his condition was that Xu Que must make hamburgers for him every day! Xu Que automatically ignored that condition, but he did agree mostly with Duan Jiude’s suggestions. Due to the nature of the Mystery Land, they would be able to improve their skills in half the time and double the results, be it for him or for all the others.
“It’s decided then. We’ll choose a batch of clever and talented Holy Sons and Holy Virgins to enter the Mystery Land for training. The patriarchs of all the other major factions will also be joining. Our target is to achieve cultivation breakthrough within five years!” Xu Que decided on the plan.
Duan Jiude scoffed, “Achieve a breakthrough in five years? You’re too naive. While the Holy Sons and Virgins may stand a chance, I doubt that the Patriarchs will be able to!”
“Who knows? We have many ways to speed up cultivation in the Heavenly Explosion Faction.” Xu Que smiled curiously.
Duan Jiude paused for a second, “What do you mean?”
“You don’t need to know, so hurry and unlock the Mystery Land. I need to return to the Five Elements Mountain too.” Xu Que waved solemnly.
Buttface jumped up immediately excitedly and exclaimed in surprise, “Lad, don’t tell me that you’re thinking of moving all the stores of the Wanda Mall of the Exploding Heavens Faction over?”
“Yo, Buttface, looks like you’re smart for once!” Xu Que,surprised, patted the dog’s head.
“Lad, my blissful life is finally commencing!” Buttface was so overjoyed that he bounced all over, like a wild husky off its leash.
“What do y’all mean?” asked the bewildered Duan Jiude, who didn’t understand what was going on. Even Jiang Hongyan, who had always stood silently on the side, had her eyes light up instantly. “Sounds good! I’ll tag along to the Five Elements Mountain. Now that I think about it, I haven’t returned for years. I miss Zi Xuan!”
“Sure!” Xu Que agreed instantly.
While Zi Xuan is not Jiang Hongyan’s biological sister, Jiang Hongyan had always treated her as her dearest of kin. It was indeed high time for her to return for a visit. Moreover, besides bringing the Snow City Troops over, Xu Que is preparing to bring Su Yunlan, Madam Ya, Situ Haitang, and the sisters, Su Ling’er and Su Xiao Qi, to the Four Great Continents.
Back when he had first left, he had promised them that when he made a name for himself in the Four Great Continents, he would fetch them to join him. Now that he had carved a name for himself, coupled with the impending great war in five years, the Five Elements Mountain would only become more dangerous. It’s was time to fetch all the ladies over to this side.
“When are we setting off?” At this moment, Jiang Hongyan turned to Xu Que and asked softly.
Xu Que smiled, “There’s no time like the present, so we’ll leave today! Impromptu journey, here we come!”
