That day, Xu Que entrusted both Jiang Taixu and Jiang Linlin to Duan Jiude. He was to send them to the Saint of the Utmost Happiness Faction, then immediately make his way to the Five Elements Mountain.
In the beginning, Xu Que had wanted to use this opportunity to have an unforgettable honeymoon trip with Jiang Hongyan. However, Buttface insisted on tagging along. He hugged Xu Que’s thighs and cried so heartbreakingly that he soon became a teary person…tsk, no, a teary dog! Left with no choice, especially as Jiang Hongyan joined in the persuasion, he allowed Buttface to come along.
Buttface immediately let out a big sigh of relief and rebounded on the spot. He regained his usual confident stride, stopped sulking, and followed them. Soon, they arrived at an isolated villa in the mountains. Having been deserted for many years, this villa was extremely rundown. When Xu Que first came to the East Continent with Buttface, he arrived via an ancient teleportation device in this mountain village. As this ancient teleportation device had a corner missing, it could only teleport one way. You could get to the Five Elements Mountain using this, but to return, you would have to patch up the missing corner.
“Buttface, you have one hour to repair the device!” Xu Que ordered quickly.
Buttface flared up, “Screw it, what the hell can I repair in an hour? It’ll take at least six months to repair this device fully!”
“Six months? Scram then! The Exploding Heavens Faction doesn’t need useless bums like you!” Xu Que quipped with disgust.
Buttface was immediately upset and tried to formulate a rebuttal. Suddenly, Jiang Hongyan smiled and walked toward the teleportation device.
“Allow me!” she spoke softly. Between slender fingers she held a small spiritual jade. She placed it into the small opening on the teleportation device.
Buttface’s eyes widened. “Is that a spell-mending stone? Aww, all hail the Holy Senior! She shall live for thousands of years, and she shall conquer the world!”
“It is not quite a spell-mending stone. I used to be a frequent user of this teleportation device, so I had some special stones made just for this portal.” Jiang Hongyan shook her head, then walked into the device. Xu Que nodded. Only a single person can own this type of spell-mending stone, and it will break after each use. They wouldn’t have to worry about others sneaking into the Five Elements Mountain. He followed her in and pulled out a bundle of Best-grade spirit stones, embedding them onto the spell altar.
The entire spell instantly initiated and the altar sparkled with a vast amount of runes, which turned into an enormous shrine. With a massive pull on the void, the group disappeared in the spell within the blink of an eye.
Two months later, at Five Elements Mountain, in the Water Nation Palace, a beam of white light shone brightly in Jiang Hongyan’s old hidden bedroom. After a while, the silhouettes of Xu Que, Jiang Hongyan, and Buttface gradually became more evident.
“We’re finally back!” shouted a refreshed Xu Que.
Although the speed of the ancient teleportation device was much faster than other methods, given the vast distance between the Five Elements Mountain and the Four Great Continents, it had still taken them two months. However, the fact that they could return pleased Xu Que.
“Yow! I have many other important matters to settle. See you guys!” howled Buttface, who took off like a wild horse finally out of the fences.
Xu Que shook his head, flabbergasted, “Buttface is such a glutton! I’m sure he went straight for the Wanda Mall of the Exploding Heavens Faction.”
“Well, it’s been four years since we have been back. Do you think that those stores are still open?” Jiang Hongyan asked curiously.
Xu Que smiled. “Of course not. I instructed them to close all the stores when I left. Ha-ha, Buttface is running for nothing!”
“You should have stopped him!” Jiang Hongyan couldn’t decide if she should laugh or cry, so she just glared at him with slight annoyance. Xu Que gazed deeply into Jiang Hongyan’s beautiful eyes. He grabbed her slender hands and cooed affectionately, “Isn’t this better? At last, nobody can disturb us now!”
“Disturb us at what?” Jiang Hongyan teased.
“What else can a lone man and woman do in a room together? They can’t possibly be playing PUBG or LOL!” Xu Que laughed, his heart secretly filled with joy. At least now, he was able to hold Jiang Hongyan’s hand naturally. It was apparent that in her heart, she had become accustomed to him. She had accepted him! It’s a good omen! He must take advantage of this victory and try to deepen their relationship! In this shared silence, he slowly leaned into Jiang Hongyan’s body. He loosened his grip and lifted her hands slightly. He was ready to surprise her, to embrace her in an instant, to lock her in a long, affectionate kiss!
“Sister, have you returned? What are you both doing inside? If I hadn’t met Buttface, I wouldn’t have known that you were back!” A voice filled with surprise and joy suddenly came from outside the bedroom. Then, a beautiful girl appeared by the door. It was Zi Xuan.
Xu Que’s face suddenly stiffened, and his mouth twitched fiercely. Damn, that idiot Buttface!
Jiang Hongyan looked at Xu Que’s expression amusedly, before turning around and letting her beautiful eyes fall on Zi Xuan. Gentleness quickly filled her face as she answered tenderly, “Zi Xuan! We’re back!”
“Sister, I missed you!” Zi Xuan ran toward her in lovely little steps and launched herself into Jiang Hongyan’s embrace.
Xu Que’s eyes widened in envy. The next moment, he opened his arms and flew toward Jiang Hongyan and Zi Xuan, shouting, “Ah, we are finally reunited again!”
“Tsk, go away!” Zi Xuan, being ever vigilant, shot daggers with her eyes at Xu Que before he could come over. Seeing that he had missed the opportunity, he pretended to hug his chest in pain.
“What are you doing?” Zi Xuan asked with a hard gaze.
Xu Que shook his head regretfully and sighed, “It’s nothing. My heart burst…bah, no, I mean my heart was moved upon seeing your reunion and deep sisterly love!”
Zi Xuan couldn’t stop laughing, “Xu Que, I haven’t seen you for years! Why hasn’t your character changed one bit?”
“Nonsense, how can you change gender at will?” Xu answered blankly.
Zi Xuan suddenly blushed and spat, “Stinky hooligan! I said character! Hmph, I’m not wasting my breath! Sister, let’s go, I have much to tell you!” After saying that, Zi Xuan dragged Jiang Hongyan by the hand and made her way out.
“Okay!” Jiang Hongyan smiled and let Zi Xuan lead her. Xu Que watched as the two women left, paying no attention to him. He scrunched up his face in frustration.
Such a tragedy! If I had known beforehand, I would not have returned so soon. Now that the sisters have reunited, god knows how many days and nights will they spend talking with each other.
“Damn, Buttface, just wait till I get my hands on you!” The thought that Buttface had led to Zi Xuan’s appearance made Xu Que furious. He then left the bedroom to head out of the palace. He hadn’t been back for some years, but to people both inside and outside the palace, Xu Que was still someone unforgettable. Palace guards and the palace maids were all surprised at first to meet Xu Que, before respectfully greeting him, “General Zhu Ge!”
Outside the palace, be it monks or the ordinary people in the imperial city, they all reacted the same way. Some even asked him when the Wanda Mall of the Exploding Heavens Faction would reopen, as many of them had missed the old hamburgers, french fries, and all kinds of ice-cream coffee!
“This…let’s discuss this in the future, in the future! Make way, everybody, I have a dog to slaughter today!” With great effort, Xu Que finally managed to squeeze out from the crowd. He just wanted to find Buttface and vent his anger. Things like reopening the Wanda Mall of the Exploding Heavens Faction were the least things on his mind!
However, when he squeezed out of the crowd, his gaze fell forward, and he saw something that dazed him. At the end of the street, a familiar, beautiful figure had just passed him.
“Sister fairy? Why is she here?” Xu Que was shocked. He couldn’t believe his eyes – the beautiful Taoist nun he had met in the mystery land – the master of Duan Jiude, Zixia Fairy, was here!
