At this moment, Zixia Fairy was speechless and shocked. She had thought that Xu Que was already dead, but now she found that Xu Que was still quite energetic and was giving her energy.
This is unbelievable. How can a young man of the Golden Core Stage have such a huge amount of energy? Even a cultivator of the Mahayana, the Great Vehicle Stage, couldn’t be like this!
Zixia Fairy couldn’t help herself asking, “Joker, how can you have this amount of energy?!”
Xu Que’s face got slightly serious and he gestured quizzically. “Zixia, it’s not important; don’t pay too much attention to the details! I think we should not give up hope. We have to find a way to break this Array!”
“You want to break this Array?!” Zixia Fairy shook her head. She was not that gifted at dealing with this situation. The Array they were stuck in was a huge one, with the sea as the checkerboard and countless stones as the pieces, which moved constantly.
“Let me have a try. I know something about this subject. Maybe I can break it!” Xu Que said gently. This time, he was not joking. Earlier, while he was singing and chatting with Zixia Fairy, the moment when he became silent, he was not pretending to be dead; instead, he was checking the screen of the System. He sifted through the entire market of the System and found nothing useful but a book about chess. The contents were mainly some basic instructions on how to play. Xu Que read it and found that people had to solve a problem to win this game.
“Across the world, there is both Ying and Yang, Dark and Light, Life and Death! They all coexist while contradicting each other. As long as we break the balance between them, maybe we can break this Array!” Xu Que said, while looking around confidently.
Zixia Fairy was a bit surprised and nodded, “But this Array is too complex. Each stone represents a certain spot and is constantly changing its position. Neither you nor I are capable of dealing with this!”
Hearing this, Xu Que nodded. Zixia Fairy was right. The difficulty of this Array lay in the fact that it had too many formations that were constantly changing. Many cultivators would find it very hard to break.
But Xu Que was very lucky, since he happened to stand on the Life Door, while Zixia was standing on the Death Door. This must have had a lot to do with the Red Rope of Marriage. Among the countless stones, there was only one stone that stood for the Life Door, and Xu Que had found it.
Now that I have found the Life Door, there is nothing to be afraid of. No matter how difficult this Array is, once I manage to decipher it, the entire Array will crumble.
Xu Que was right. As long as he could break the balance between the energy and the lifeless Qi, the Array would be broken. This was just like playing chess. The Lifeless Qi was represented by the black chess; the energy was represented by the white chess. No matter how complicated the game was, once the person who held the black chess or the white chess lost, the game was over.
Suddenly, Xu Que’s face turned serious, and he looked at Zixia Fairy. “Zixia, I have a bold idea!”
“What idea?” Zixia was a bit surprised.
“I am going to get into the sea!”
“What?!” Zixia Fairy was now shocked.
Get into the sea? What sea? Wait! Don’t tell me he is planning to get into THIS sea! Zixia Fairy tried to persuade Xu Que not to do so. “You can’t get into this sea. It is full of the Lifeless Qi. If you get into it, no matter how much energy you have got, you will be devoured by it in just a few seconds!”
“So what?! I am not afraid of death!” Xu Que said with great determination. “Well, do you have any other options? If we just stay here and do nothing, we will die! Now we have thought of a way, why not try it?”
Hearing this, Zixia Fairy was silent.
Yes, he is right. If we just stay here and do nothing, we will die anyway. We should try our best as long as there is a shred of hope left. But, jumping into the sea,…will it really do? I am afraid it would only push both of us closer to death!
“Zixia, see you later!” Xu Que had instilled a huge amount of energy into her and, after, he released his hand and stood heavily on the white stone and sank into the sea.
“Joker!” Zixia Fairy exclaimed.
Even though she had known Xu Que would get into the sea soon, she never thought he would do so immediately without any hesitation. However, there was no use for her to cry out his name, since Xu Que had already vanished, without leaving any trace.
She sighed and felt upset and sad. She did not know Joker that well, but now she felt like she had lost someone of great importance to her. “Never mind. After my Magical Body dies, I will try to come back and do everything I can to break the Array. I will also set up a monument to you!”
At the same time, Xu Que was smoothly sinking into the sea. He was not being tortured by the Lifeless Qi. Instead, the deeper he went, the more energy his body was taking on. “If the energy keeps rushing into my body, I think I will be dead before I reach the bottom of the sea.”
Xu Que frowned. He knew the key to breaking the Array lay in the bottom of the sea. As soon as he took away the object that was giving out the energy, the Array would be crushed. But the energy was too powerful in the sea; his body could not stand it too long.
“Right!” Xu Que suddenly came up with an idea. He quickly took out his Beast Soul Bag and opened it. The moment he opened it, the sound of cursing came out.
“Bastard, how dare you! How dare you imprison us here?!”
“As a member of the Xuanzhen royalty, I will never ever let you go once I get out.”
“I swear no one could protect you or rescue you when I get out!”
The cultivators who were at the threshold of the Crossing Calamity Stage were shouting.
Xu Que made a surprising face and said, “I am sorry. My name is Joker. This bag does not belong to me. I simply got it by accident. Why are you all inside?”
The cultivators were a bit surprised when they found out that the young man who had opened the bag was not Xu Que, but someone else.
“Don’t worry, I will release you immediately,” Xu Que said, and he let all the cultivators out of the bag. They all flew out as quickly as possible.
Before they had the time to ask who the young man was who had released them, they were astonished by the place where they were.
“What a wonderful place this is! Where are we?!”
“Why on earth is there such a huge amount of energy?!”
“At last, I have been waiting for this for such a long time!”
“God bless me!”
They began to laugh out loud. For them, the energy was a priceless treasure. As long as they had enough energy, they would be able to reach the Crossing Calamity Stage.
“Turn around, I have a surprise for you!” While they were all getting out of the bag and being excited, Xu Que suddenly began to speak.
Hearing this, the cultivators turned around and were stunned.
Although Xu Que looked like another person completely, they would never be able to forget Xu Que’s smiling face. The next minute, they were all hit by Xu Que with a long black stick.
They cursed to themselves and were so angry that they thought they were about to spit out blood.
Bang, bang, bang!
They all fainted before they had made any sounds. Xu Que hurriedly pulled them over and used their bodies as a shield. With the cultivators’ bodies absorbing the energy, he could smoothly go deeper again.
He was sinking deeper and deeper.…
