Chapter 802: A Man Should Show Some Initiative!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
In the Xuanzhen Continent, the battlefield between mankind and the Heaven Orc Tribe stretched for hundreds of thousands of miles. Most of the combat between mankind and the Heaven Orc Tribe happened in this area, which, therefore, was full of uncollected dead bodies and the repulsive smell of blood!
The Qunjet driven by Xu Que, which carried Jiang Hongyan as well, flew over this area. After three days and three nights, they finally left the territory of the Heaven Orc Tribe successfully without triggering any restrictive spells. Looking at the mutilated bodies, Xu Que couldn’t help but shake his head.
Conflicts were unavoidable in places where there were living creatures. Conflicts could occur between sects, places, and races, which were endless! Conflicts occurred in the Five Elements Mountain, the Four Continents, and even in this Xuanzhen Continent!
“We’ll arrive at the front line of mankind’s territory soon. We should disguise ourselves first!” Jiang Hongyan said in a low voice as she looked forward. Xu Que nodded. A lot of generals in the Xuanzhen Continent knew Jiang Hongyan because of her noble identity. If Jiang Hongyan showed up in her original appearance, her father would definitely be alerted.
Without any hesitation, Xu Que took out a new Human-skinned Mask and changed its facial appearance. Jiang Hongyan received the mask and said with a smile, “You can always fabricate these things, which are weird but quite useful!”
“Of course! Our Exploding Heavens Faction is omnipotent! I can even give you a star if you ask for one!” Xu Que said with a laugh.
Jiang Hongyan smiled as she put on the mask. Her face was changed instantly. Although her new face was not as beautiful as her original one, her graceful temperament couldn’t be covered up.
“Wow, little girl, you are really a born beauty! You are still so charming even after changing your face!” Xu Que said with a smile.
Jiang Hongyan shook her head, “Let’s talk about business first. The things we are going to face are quite dangerous!”
Hearing that, Xu Que couldn’t help but stop smiling. This time, he planned to seize the God-realization Tree, so that they could stop Jiang Hongyan’s father from obtaining the God-realization Fruit from the tree. After all, a strand of Jiang Hongyan’s soul was saved in that tree, which they had to take back!
However, Jiang Hongyan’s father was formidably powerful. He had reached the summit of the Great Vehicle Stage, which was only one step away from becoming a celestial! Xu Que would be defeated by Jiang Hongyan’s father easily, even if he fought in full force. Therefore, Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan had to think of another plan.
“What are you going to do?” Xu Que asked.
He knew nothing about the Xuanzhen Continent. Moreover, at present, Jiang Hongyan was as powerful as he. Therefore, he had to inquire about Jiang Hongyan’s plan first, so that he could figure out how powerful the enemy was he was going to confront.
Jiang Hongyan looked at Xu Que quietly for a while. Then, she said in a low voice, “You need around 30 days to cover the journey from the front line to the Imperial Palace. I will give you the map and the pass permit of the Imperial Palace. When you arrive, I will lure him away. After seizing the God-realization Tree, you should retreat immediately and find an opportunity to reunite with me!”
“Your plan won’t work!” Xu Que shook his head immediately. “Let’s switch our tasks. I will lure your father away. You can be responsible for seizing the God-realization Tree. Don’t forget I have the Divine Escape Spell, which could let me escape at any time!”
“No, according to his style, he will never confront you personally. In addition, he has numerous powerful underlings, including some powerhouses at the Great Vehicle Stage. Only I could lure him away!” Jiang Hongyan said seriously.
However, Xu Que still shook his head. At this time, he would never allow Jiang Hongyan to take this risk. After all, they were facing a cultivator at the summit of the Great Vehicle Stage. If something bad happened to Jiang Hongyan, the God-realization Tree would be useless to him!
If he lost Jiang Hongyan at last, this plan was definitely a losing trade!
“Forget it, let’s just proceed without a plan. We go back to mankind’s territory first and make a plan according to the actual situation, OK?” Xu Que asked.
After a short consideration, Jiang Hongyan nodded her head with a smile, “OK!”
At last, after five days’ flying, they arrived at mankind’s front line successfully!
Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan restored their human appearance. After some disguise, they managed to go through the front line campsites and arrived at an ancient city, which was very close to the frontline. This ancient city was as large as those in the four continents, but the cultivators in this city were much more powerful than cultivators in any ancient city of the four continents.
When they entered the city, Xu Que discovered that all the guards of the city had at least reached the summit of the Void Training Stage, who would be treated as Holy Sons or Holy Virgins in the four continents. As for the cultivators in this city, it was just like dragons and fishes jumbled together. They could see cultivators and demonic beasts that disguised themselves as humans everywhere.
Among them, there were cultivators at the Infant Transformation Stage, Void Training Stage, and Form Synthesis Stage. Even some cultivators at the Crossing Calamity Stage could be found. But Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan didn’t find any cultivators at the Great Vehicle Stage in this city.
“This ancient city is very close to the front line, so it is a little bit chaotic. Let’s keep a low profile. Tomorrow morning, we will leave for the Imperial Palace by taking the teleportation device!” Jiang Hongyan reminded Xu Que in a low voice to stop him from making any trouble.
Xu Que raised his eyebrows and said, smiling, “Don’t worry. I am a humble man! By the way, Hongyan, there are so many cultivators in this city. Maybe we can’t find a room in the hotels easily. We can share one room tonight, or other cultivators have to spend the night in the streets!”
Hearing that, Jiang Hongyan stopped walking for a while. She fixed her beautiful eyes on Xu Que quietly. But Xu Que had upgraded his shamelessness. He continued to have an eye contact with Jiang Hongyan without missing a beat. At last, Jiang Hongyan shook her head with a faint smile, “Let’s go, if we don’t seize the moment, we will have to spend the night in the streets!”
Does this mean she agrees to share a room with me?
Xu Que’s eyes lit up and he started to follow Jiang Hongyan excitedly. In a short while, they found a hotel. The waiter told them a lot of rooms were available at this moment. Xu Que placed several Spirit Stones on the desk and said loudly, “We only need the best room of your hotel! Spring has come; leave the rest of the rooms to those who need them!”
Standing beside Xu Que, Jiang Hongyan said nothing with a faint smile. After that, they went upstairs, following the waiter.
After closing the door, Xu Que jumped on the bed immediately and made a coquettish pose. Then, he said to Jiang Hongyan with a smile as he patted the bed, “Hongyan, it’s late, let’s sleep.”
Jiang Hongyan replied with a faint smile, “I only need a short while to cultivate!”
After saying that, she sat down on the futon in the middle of the room, crossing her legs. Then, she closed her beautiful eyes and started her cultivation.
Xu Que was immediately frustrated. As a matter of fact, cultivators didn’t need to sleep. They could refresh their spirits and strength through cultivation, which was even more efficient than sleeping. But Xu Que didn’t want to give up easily! It was so difficult for him to get an opportunity to stay with Jiang Hongyan alone!
Also, according to the third principle of the Exploding Heavens Faction, if a man didn’t do something when he shared a room with a woman, there was no difference between this man and a salted fish!
No, I can’t give up so easily! A man should show some initiative!
At the thought of this, Xu Que sat up on the bed and asked, “Hongyan, do you want to gang up with me?”
