Xu Que started to follow Zixia Fairy with puzzlement.
After turning herself into an ugly and emaciated girl, Zixia Fairy’s appearance was quite “impressive”. On their way, a lot of people were startled by her! Then, people started to look at Xu Que with weird expressions!
“Interesting! How could such a handsome man go together with that ugly woman?”
“Are they going to enter the abode? They are seeking their deaths!”
“Hah-hah, that ugly woman has prevented other cultivators from joining them!”
“That woman is quite weird! I bet she is planning a conspiracy!”
On their way, they could hear all kinds of slanderous gossip. Xu Que was quite happy. When he peeped at Zixia Fairy, he found she was frowning, but was not annoyed. So, he had to admit he was impressed by this broad-minded woman!
However, as her companion, Xu Que knew he couldn’t pretend he heard nothing. The next moment, he stopped and said as he looked at the gossipers coldly, “Guys! Please stop your meaningless comments! Lady Azi has a kind heart! You can’t judge her according to her appearance for this is totally ignorant!”
His words stunned the people. When they sensed Xu Que had reached the Golden Core Stage, they chose to close their mouths to avoid unnecessary troubles! However, someone who had a lot of companions still ridiculed, “My fellow cultivator, we are free to judge others according to their appearances. You are not qualified to stop us!”
“Humph!” Xu Que’s face darkened immediately, “I dare you to say it again! I will never allow you to insult Lady Azi like this!”
His words stunned the people again! Even Zixia Fairy was shocked by his words. She looked at Xu Que in surprise. Apparently, she didn’t expect Xu Que would defend her so stoutly for such a trifling thing.
“Heh-heh, then what? Are you going to fight all of us?” someone sneered at this time. He was not afraid of a cultivator at the Golden Core Stage, especially when a lot of his companions were standing behind him.
Xu Que’s face turned pale immediately. However, he still stepped forward without any hesitation and said resolutely as if death was nothing for him, “Alive, be man of men; dead, be soul of souls! Death won’t scare me away! If you continue to disrespect Lady Azi, I, Joker, will fight to my last drop of blood!”
His sonorous voice was echoing in this area!
Everyone was stunned by his words and didn’t believe what they had heard.
“Is he insane?”
“What a psycho!”
“How could he risk his life for a woman he met by chance? Is that really necessary?”
“He is crazy! This guy is definitely crazy!”
“Forget it, just leave this idiot alone, let’s enter the abode!”
“Right, let’s go!”
The people left, shaking their heads. They were not afraid of Xu Que, but thought it was unnecessary to take him on here. After all, this was just a trifling thing. If they suffered casualties in fighting against Xu Que, it would be a great loss for them.
“You don’t need to do that! They are free to say anything. I just don’t care about it!” Zixia Fairy said, shaking her head slightly as she looked at Xu Que with a strange expression.
Xu Que said seriously and resolutely, “Lady Azi, please don’t misunderstand me. What I’ve done is not only for you, but also follows my heart! If I remained indifferent when they insulted you, there would be no difference between me and a beast! And I would be killed by the torture of consciousness!”
Zixia Fairy was stunned and didn’t know what to say.
The awe-inspiring righteousness of this young man bewildered her. Being a cultivator for so many years, she had never met such a just man like him!
“Anyway, thank you!” Zixia Fairy smiled and nodded her head. The good feeling in her heart about Xu Que was enhanced inexplicably. For her, a just man like Xu Que was quite rare in this world, like one in a million.
“Lady Azi, it is my pleasure. As I said just now, I am just following my heart. Oh, it’s getting late, let’s get going!” Xu Que also replied with a smile.
The two of them continued to walk forward. The abode was located in a barren plain. Its entrance was at the opening of the valley. Nothing could be found here before. Recently, an entrance appeared out of nowhere suddenly. Someone found it and guessed it was an entrance to an age-old abode!
Xu Que tried to ask Zixia Fairy about the history of this abode. However, Zixia Fairy was not talkative and didn’t render useful information. After a short while, they arrived at the entrance of the abode. A lot of cultivators had gathered there. They formed a lot of expedition groups, most of which were composed of around 10 cultivators. In this way, they could look after each other in the abode.
People started to enter the abode. After a short while, they just disappeared together with flickering white light.
“The abode is full of restrictive spells and Teleportation Devices. However, no matter which Teleportation Device we take, it will take us to the bottom of the abode. When we enter the abode, please follow me tightly to avoid being separated by the Teleportation Device!” Zixia Fairy said to Xu Que at this time.
“OK!” Xu Que nodded and said nothing more. He knew Zixia Fairy must know this abode very well. To avoid her suspicions, he chose to keep silent. Anyway, the answers to all the questions could be found in the abode.
Soon, cultivators outside the entrance were becoming less and less. Xu Que and Zixia Fairy also stepped into the entrance together!
A buzz came in from Xu Que’s mind suddenly. He was surprised and tried to find the source of it in the System package. Then, he found the buzz was from that black fire stick! He had gotten this fire stick from Duan Jiude, who said it was the key to open the last seal of the Five Elements Mountain. Moreover, he had an inexplicable familiarity with this stick. It was not a soul-level familiarity. It seemed the stick could resonate with his body, and he always felt intimacy from it.
What’s going on? Xu Que couldn’t help but frown.
Before this, nothing could be sensed from the stick. However, after the entry of the abode, it started to buzz suddenly as if it was quite excited to go back!
“What happened?” Zixia Fairy asked, as she sensed something was wrong with Xu Que.
“Nothing, I just got a weird feeling about this place!” Xu Que shook his head slightly, but didn’t take out the fire stick!
An idea occurred to him suddenly. Since the fire stick was key to open the last seal of the Five Elements Mountain, and it started to buzz after entering this abode, there could only be two possibilities to explain that!
Possibility No. 1: According to the theory of the Exploding Heavens Faction, all sticks will get excited after entering a cave!
Possibility No. 2: Maybe the last seal is located in this place. So, the fire stick started to react in this place!
Apparently, the possibility of the latter one was higher!
Xu Que couldn’t help but look at Zixia Fairy, for he had figured out something.
This woman came to the Five Elements Mountain from afar. I guess she is trying to break the seals of the Five Elements Mountain!
“The Teleportation Device is over there, let’s go this way!” Zixia Fairy pointed at a position to her left after stopping in front of a restrictive spell at this time. Xu Que found the ground was full of thickly dotted runes. And almost each group of runes could form an unfathomable spell!
“Let’s go there together! Otherwise, we will be separated!” Zixia Fairy said again as she stepped forward.
“OK!” Xu Que also followed her tightly and his heart beat even faster!
He thought he had made a right decision to come here. If Zixia Fairy was about to break the seals, he had to stop her making trouble!
