Chapter 744: Feeling Very Happy!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Soon, a cultivator suddenly exploded. His body had absorbed too much energy, and because he never used the Body Cultivation Inscription to cultivate his body, his body was not as tough as Xu Que’s.
The explosion wave dispersed the energy around Xu Que and made it a bit easier for him to go down to the bottom of the sea.
“No one can stop me getting to the bottom of the sea!” Xu Que said with great determination.
The cultivators’ bodies exploded one after another. Soon, after the last cultivator’s body exploded, Xu Que arrived at the bottom of the sea. It was very murky, and there were neither beautiful corals nor lovely fish. Due to the combination of the energy and the Lifeless Qi, the water was very muddy.
Xu Que felt like he was in a place that was full of mist, and he could not tell the energy and the Lifeless Qi apart. However, when he made his first step forward, a ray of extremely bright light appeared. The light was as bright as the stars. Inside the murky water, it was just as if the sunlight had penetrated the mist. Xu Que felt very hopeful.
He did not think about it too much and hurriedly activated his Hell King’s Prison Suppression Style to stop the energy getting into his body. Then he strode forward and rushed toward the light, which was getting brighter and brighter.
But the next moment, the light suddenly dimmed and a rather black light appeared, and, all of a sudden, a huge amount of Lifeless Qi erupted all around him.
“Crap!” Xu Que was surprised.
Then he finally saw what was in front of him. It was a stone plate, half white and half black, and it was giving out first the energy and then the Lifeless Qi. Suddenly, he saw a ray of extremely bright light, and felt a huge amount of energy trying to rush into his body. Then, when the light turned black, he could feel a large quantity of Lifeless Qi.
“What on earth is this? It’s so weird!” Xu Que was stunned.
A stone plate that was only as big as a person’s palm was able to support such a powerful Array and was giving out a huge amount of energy and Lifeless Qi. Even a cultivator who was as powerful as Zixia Fairy could not cope with it.
“This is really scary! I have to take this damn thing away and get rid of it, in case it kills more cultivators!” Xu Que’s heart began to beat faster, and he hurriedly walked forward, with a big smile.
All of a sudden, the stone plate gave out the Lifeless Qi and stopped Xu Que from getting closer to it. Xu Que was thrown forward a few hundred feet and even made a somersault. At the same time, a huge amount of Lifeless Qi got into his body and began to devour his own energy and rapidly shorten his lifespan.
“Crap! You think you can kill me like this?! I have been in this Cultivation World for such a long time and have defeated so many powerful cultivators and have acted tough successfully millions of times. I swear I can tackle this damn stone!”
Xu Que frowned, waving his hands, and shouted in a deep voice, “System, help! Help me to get rid of this damn stone plate!”
Ding! “An ‘Ancient Life and Death Wheel’ detected. This object is a holy object. To keep it, the host must create a Holy-Weapon-Keeping Pavilion.” The System said coldly.
“What?! A holy weapon?!” Xu Que was so amazed that his eyes opened wide with surprise.
I am so lucky. I even found a holy weapon! My goodness! This is a holy weapon! A holy weapon!
Xu Que was so excited to find a holy weapon that he wasn’t even able to buy from the System’s market.
“Yes! Let’s create a Holy-Weapon-Keeping Pavilion then! Let’s create it!” He shouted to the System. The next moment, the sound of the notification sound echoed.
Ding! “Congratulations to the host on successfully creating a Holy-Weapon-Keeping Pavilion by consuming 50,000 Acting Tough Points!”
50,000 Acting Tough Points?! Are you kidding me?!
Xu Que stared at the screen of the System with big eyes. On the object-keeping space, an extra Holy-Weapon-Keeping Pavilion appeared. It was divided into countless little boxes, and the first box was already opened, while the rest of the boxes were still closed and had question marks on their surfaces.
While Xu Que was looking at the second box, the System said, “To open the second box, the host will have to spend 100,000 Acting Tough Points!”
“Screw you! I will not open it!” Xu Que shouted angrily.
Before, he had worked hard acting tough in the East Continent and won more than 300,000 Acting Tough Points by telling everyone that he would take the responsibility of protecting the Four Great Continents. If he managed to win 2 million Acting Tough Points, he would be able to upgrade the System into version 10.0. By that time, he would know how to make the Space Breaking Spell and go back to earth. But now, he had been tricked by the System, and he had spent 50,000 Acting Tough Points.
I am really pissed off.
Ding! “The Holy-Weapon-Keeping Pavilion is already opened, are you going to keep the Ancient Life and Death Wheel?” The System asked coldly.
“Yes!” Xu Que said abruptly.
Never mind, 50,000 Acting Tough Points is no big deal, anyway. I have got a holy weapon.
The next moment, an invisible and magnificent power erupted out from Xu Que’s body just like the time when Xu Que pulled out the Living Holy Tree in the Upflowing Sea.
The bottom of the sea began to shake, as did the Ancient Life and Death Wheel, as if it did not want to leave. After a while, the Ancient Life and Death Wheel got smaller and smaller and went into Xu Que’s body.
Ding! “Congratulations to the host on getting the Ancient Life and Death Wheel!” The sound of the notification echoed.
At the same time, a vortex appeared near his stomach. The vortex began to absorb all the energy as well as the Lifeless Qi. After a short while, all the energy and all the Lifeless Qi went back to the Ancient Life and Death Wheel. Then the entire sea started to fall apart.
Obviously, the Array had begun to crumble without the support of the holy weapon. Xu Que hurriedly opened the screen of the System and began to check the Ancient Life and Death Wheel.
“Ancient Life and Death Wheel” :
Level: low class
Status: a bit broken
Energy: 80% (helps the host or others to increase their lifespan)
Liveless Qi: 90% (helps the host or others to shorten their lifespan)
“Brilliant! From now on, I will be able to control life and death!” Xu Que said with great excitement. “System, hurry up! Increase my lifespan by 100 million years!”
Ding! “Due to the power of the host, the host’s lifespan can only be increased by 500 years!”
The System declined Xu Que’s request.
Well, if my span could really be increased by 100 million years, I would not need to worry about being killed by the energy.
“Joker, where are you?!”
An anxious sound came.
Xu Que turned around and found the entire checkerboard was gone. The enormous sea had changed into a small pond. Looking up, Xu Que saw Zixia Fairy standing at the bank and looking for him anxiously.
Xu Que smiled shamelessly.
“System! Decrease my lifespan by 500 years, and make me look older. Make me look like a dying man! As the king in the acting world, I have to act like a real old man!”
