With that, the three young men from the Divine Son Division left in a rage. Xu Que waited for their aura to disappear entirely from the Soul Strength detection before he sat next to Jiang Hongyan again, his hands dying to touch her.
Jiang Hongyan shot him an exasperated look and whispered, “Frankly speaking, you could have taken up their offer to join the Divine Son Division.”
“Huh? Is there anything special about this Divine Son Division?” Xu Que asked doubtfully.
After all, while those three men did seem quite powerful, they were not strong enough to make Xu Que think highly of them. Once he unleashed the King of Tough-Acting Fist, those three would surely perish! Why join this so-called Divine Son Division if that was the best they could offer? It could not even compare to his Exploding Heavens Faction!
“The key to the Divine Son Division lies in their commander-in-chief, Qin Wei! Also at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage, he has an extraordinary position in the Xuanzhen Continent; even the Emperor has got to show him some courtesy and doesn’t want to fight him. If you take refuge in the Divine Son Division, even the Emperor would need to think twice before touching you!” Jiang Hongyan said.
Xu Que could not believe his ears. “What? Is this commander guy stronger than the Emperor?”
“No. Strengthwise, the Emperor would surely be in the top rankings within the Xuanzhen Continent, and Qin Wei could never compare. However, cultivators who had reached their stage are often reluctant to fight. As even if there is a gap in strength, it’s unlikely that they could kill each other that easily.”
As Jiang Hongyan said this, she looked up slightly at the night sky beyond the windowsill and whispered, “When you reach that level, you will inevitably make numerous enemies. Once a war breaks out, you can’t escape unscathed even if you killed the other party. Once that happens, the rest of your enemies would surely launch a sneak attack when you’re weak. Therefore, instead of saying that Your Majesty fears Qin Wei, it is more appropriate to say that he is worried about getting injured!”
“I see. It’s okay. Then there’s nothing much to worry about. This division seems wicked; we just saw it too. They are all so arrogant that I’m almost annoyed!” Xu Que complained, his expression irritated.
Jiang Hongyan did not know whether to laugh or cry at his words. Do they annoy you?
Who else in the world can annoy you? Weren’t you the one who pissed them off till they ran away in the first place?
“Ah, let’s not talk about it. The more we talk about it, the more I get upset!” Xu Que stopped the topic with a wave.
Xu Que felt that it was such a pity that he could not kill those three people. If the King of Tough-Acting Fist had been available, he could have used it to establish respect and intimidate his detractors!
“Well, not joining the division was a good thing! Qin Wei isn’t exactly the best of men; as far as I know, the purpose of him cultivating the Divine Son Division wasn’t that moral either!” Jiang Hongyan nodded and said gently.
“Why is it immoral?” Xu Que was uninterested in the Divine Son Division but had wanted to distract Jiang Hongyan’s attention. Only when she’s absorbed in chatting will his wicked claws find a chance to slip past her defenses. So, he pretended to be a curious baby and asked.
Jiang Hongyan did not see Xu Que’s “misguided thoughts” and responded earnestly, “His plan to nurture the Divine Sons was just for him to control them. He would make them enter Road of Heavenly Ascension, and bring him the Celestial Bone Fruit!”
“Hmm? What is the Celestial Bone Fruit?” Her words piqued his interest for real, and now he was genuinely curious.
Jiang Hongyan looked at him and said, “A kind of fruit growing from the remains of an Immortal cultivator. It’s a rare medicine that could help to break through the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage!”
“Can medicine grow out of Immortal cultivators?” Xu Que was astonished.
Jiang Hongyan chuckled, “It’s just hearsay, but according to ancient records, some people did see the remains of an Immortal cultivator on the Road of Heavenly Ascension a long time ago. They plucked a fruit from the bones, absorbed it, and achieved Celestial Stage. However, no one else had ever seen the remains of the Immortal again. Even if they did, they would not dare disclose it to the outside world. That was also precisely why the Emperor had nourished the God-realization Tree with a wisp of my past soul.
“So that’s what it is!” Xu Que nodded, and his eyes narrowed slightly. Was it really that difficult to achieve the Celestial Stage?
“It’s getting late. If you don’t rest now, you may not be able to catch tomorrow’s war!” At this time, Jiang Hongyan looked at Xu Que and smiled mildly. Ever since last time, she realized that Xu Que could not use his unique sure-kill fist technique as and when he wished. It needed time to recover when he had used it to the limit.
Xu Que looked out of the window and stared at the night sky. With a nod, he retrieved his hand. As Jiang Hongyan had said, if he could not restore his Taoist Connotation in time, he would miss out on the battle tomorrow. He sat on the futon and soon entered the state of Tao Comprehension, re-examining and re-perceiving his Taoist Connotation.
Jiang Hongyan sat beside him and looked at him quietly for a long time. After that, her beautiful lips rose slightly, and warmth swept across her beautiful eyes. Before she realized it, she had gotten used to and taken quite a liking to spending this kind of time alone with Xu Que.
They would stay together, fight together, chat with each other, and practice together, a simple life, a simple flow. It was wonderful. Finally, she closed her eyes and entered a state of meditation.
The next day, the trumpet sounded on the battlefield again!
Both the human cultivators and the Heaven Orc Tribe had rebuilt their armies and landed on the battlefield once again. Battle had commenced!
This time, Xu Que was late. Recovering his Taoist Connotation took some time, and the distance was slightly far; therefore, he did not bring Jiang Hongyan and came alone. When he finally got to the battlefront, Xu Que became a little worried as he had run out of ideas on how to pull the mob.
As the King of Tough-Acting Fist was a skill with area-of-effect damage, the efficiency of killing would decrease if the giants were not gathered. However, his eyes lit up when he passed by the series of toilets in the camp, and he entered them quickly. He called out the System and took out hundreds of storage rings! Xu Que began to pinch the many Buddha’s Fiery Lotus and squeezed it to the brink of explosion. He then immediately put it into the storage ring, along with the stinky excrements from the dump pit.
Xu Que never left the toilet for the whole morning. It was not until noon that he burst out of the toilet, satisfied, and went straight to the battlefront. Some of the human cultivators in the camp were shocked when they saw him leave. “Isn’t that Li Bai from the Exploding Heavens Faction? Didn’t he go to the battlefield today?”
“Strange, I thought I saw him enter the toilet this morning? Why did he only come out now?”
“And to leave looking so satiated!”
All who were curious entered the toilet to check, and they were all stunned speechless. The usually stinky toilet had not even half a crap!
“My God! Someone had stolen our toilet crap!” The crowd immediately cried out in dismay.
“Holy cow, is he crazy?”
“That’s terrifying. What’s Xu Que doing with the crap he stole?”
“No, he left with a satisfied face, which looked like…like he just had a full meal!”
“Crap! I suddenly thought of a bold reason!”
“Crap! Me too!”
Then, a series of exclamations rang throughout the camp.
At the same time, at the front line, a figure arrived hurriedly. It was Xu Que. He shouted at the top of his lungs from afar, “It’s too late to explain. Everyone place your bets! Big or small?” Everyone on the battlefield was so engrossed in fighting that no one paid any attention to Xu Que. Xu Que was upset at their response. The Act-Tough Saint is opening a gambling table. How dare they ignore it?
He jumped. Steering a bolt of lightning, he plunged into the center of the battlefield. Only then did the giants of the Heaven Orc Tribe realize Xu Que’s arrival. They roared, then collectively decided to ignore him. Instead, they turned away and charged toward the human cultivators.
“Wow, don’t do that! I am neither Li Bai nor Li Xiaoyao. I am Jet Li!” Although Xu Que had changed his outfit, his appearance was still the same as that of his disguise. No one would believe him even if he claimed to be Jet Li. The Giants had learned their lesson after being fooled for two consecutive days. This guy was just here to make trouble. They would live longer if they paid no attention to him!
“Oh, come on, you’re no fun. I’m going home!” Xu Que yelled from boredom like he had lost his pleasure because nobody wanted to talk to him. He turned to leave. Suddenly, something that gleamed slightly fell out of his clothes. It immediately attracted the attention of some Heaven Orc giants! They fixed their eyes on that item, and then their eyes brightened brilliantly, visibly excited.
“Storage Ring, that’s a Storage Ring!”
“Snatch it! That human kid carries so many best-grade Spirit Stones. They must be hidden in these storage rings!”
Many giants of the Heaven Orc Tribe were alarmed by the commotion and stomped toward Xu Que, before jumping up suddenly to grab the storage rings. Xu Que continued to fly forward as if he hadn’t noticed anything. The storage rings kept falling out while he flew, and the giants behind him began to grab at them madly.
Some cultivators who noticed what was happening couldn’t take it any longer. They hastily reminded Li Bai, “Exploding Heavens Faction Li Bai, your storage rings have fallen out!”
Hearing their words, Xu Que looked down and paled. He immediately turned around and yelled, “Stop it! Don’t touch my storage rings! Don’t look inside!”
The many giants of the Heaven Orc Tribe burst into laughter, overjoyed that they had finally gotten back at Xu Que.
Don’t touch your storage ring?
Damn, we’re going to rob you!
Don’t look inside?
Crap, so what! We must see it!
