Chapter 848: Extraordinary Kismet!

Buttface said he went back to the East Continent out of sheer boredom and planned to cultivate justice and save people from suffering. However, he found the East Continent, which was full of evil, to be hopeless. So, he went to the Celestial Burial Valley to relieve his boredom. On the spur of the moment, he entered the Celestial Burial Valley and tried to check whether a Celestial was really buried there.
He never expected he was walking into a killing spell Array, which was full of dangerous Void Cracks. Generally speaking, a Void Crack could be used to travel between two places like the teleportation device. However, the Void Cracks that were as large as needles or swords were extremely dangerous for cultivators. Once a cultivator was hit by a Void Crack, part of its body would be teleported to another place, no matter how powerful the cultivator’s physique was!
Therefore, Buttface was in a fluster. At last, he exploded hundreds of his magic artifacts to enlarge the Void Crack into a cave. Then, he jumped into the cave. The next moment, he appeared on the Road of Heavenly Ascension.
“Alas, I didn’t expect to be bullied by human beings on the Road of Heavenly Ascension as I was a wise and majestic wolf! My life was really miserable in these last months!”
“When I tried to beg for food from them, they drove me away. In order to avoid defecating indiscriminately, I peed on a tree, but I was still attacked by them. This is really a vicious world without any justice!” Buttface said sadly as he looked at Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan as if he wanted to receive comfort from them.
Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan exchanged eye contact with wry smiles as they shook their heads. As Buttface said, he came to this place from a Void Crack accidentally, which meant the entrance to the Road of Heavenly Ascension was not in the Celestial Burial Valley. Therefore, they couldn’t go back to the Four Continents through the same Void Crack that Buttface had gotten here with.
After all, void was something illusory, abstruse, and unintelligible for almost everybody. Technically, if Buttface could come to the Road of Heavenly Ascension through a Void Crack, Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan should also be able to go back to the Four Continents through it. However, the problem was they didn’t know how to go back to the Four Continents even if they could tear the void apart.
The reckless entry into a Void Crack was just like jumping into a vast ocean. Without navigation, they would only go with the tides and currents, and nobody knew where the tides and currents would take them.
“Damn! Why are you looking at each other? What I need is your consolation!” Buttface shouted immediately as he couldn’t stand being neglected by them.
Jiang Hongyan smiled but said nothing.
Xu Que also didn’t want to talk to Buttface. He had thought Buttface would bring them some good news. But it turned out they still couldn’t go back to the Four Continents! Buttface is really good for nothing!
“Hey, little brat! Don’t clam up on me! Let’s have freestyle! Yo! Yo! I look up at the sky, the moon is so high.… Crap! Wrong lyrics! Hey, don’t go! Where are you going? Are you going to have dinner? Wait for me!”
At last, Xu Que continued to move forward along the Road of Heavenly Ascension together with Jiang Hongyan and Buttface. Since they had arrived in this place, they hadn’t come across any adventures. They couldn’t return empty-handed. Maybe they could find some good opportunities or fortunes here. However, the Road of Heavenly Ascension had been opened for many years. Almost all opportunities or fortunes had already been taken away.
The entire place was quite desolate. It was nothing extraordinary except for its intense Spiritual Qi. However, they could see fighting marks everywhere. People would fight because of small conflicts or precious items! Xu Que didn’t even find an herb, let alone opportunities or fortunes.
They wandered all around in this area. At last, they walked through an open grassland and stopped in front of a waterfall.They didn’t find any trace of cultivators here. It was a quiet and picturesque place, where colorful butterflies were flying around.
“Wait, there is a cave behind the waterfall!” Buttface said, pointing at the waterfall.
Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan turned around and found a small cave behind the waterfall. It was so cleverly hidden that nobody could see it without careful observation!
“It seems nobody has entered this cave before. Let’s just have a look. Maybe we can really find something inside!” Xu Que said as he looked at Jiang Hongyan joyfully.
Jiang Hongyan nodded her head and walked toward the waterfall following Xu Que.
Buttface brought up the rear as he looked around carefully. In case of any danger, he would be the first one to run away!
However, the cave was inexplicably quiet. Xu Que, who walked at the front, entered the cave smoothly without even finding a protective spell. After that, a cool breeze caressed his cheeks. The air in the cave was filled with a delicate fragrance, which was so refreshing.
“What is that?”
At this time, Jiang Hongyan, who was behind Xu Que, also sensed the refreshing breeze, which surprised her a bit.
She looked around and fixed her eyes on the small lake in the center of the cave. Then, she said in surprise, “It appears to be…the Soul Marrow. How could so many Soul Marrows be stored here?”
“The Soul Marrow?” Xu Que, who was also surprised, looked at that milky lake.
Ding! “Soul Marrow is detected. Should the System start the extraction?”
The System’s warning tone echoed in Xu Que’s mind as a text box appeared in front of his eyes.
[Soul Marrow]: A condensation of the Heavens and Earth’s essences, it could only be generated in a place with special topography after many years.
Effect: It could clear the user’s mind during cultivation. It could accelerate the cultivation speed of Soul Strength and Taoist Connotation 30 percent and will also solidify them. Also, it could be used in Alchemy!
“Wow, it is awesome!” Xu Que’s eyes lit up immediately.
This could be the so-called good luck! In the Road of Heavenly Ascension where countless cultivators had explored, they managed to find a place with abundant Soul Marrows, which hadn’t been discovered by others apparently, by just wandering around.
“It seems what Lord Zeng said was correct! Little girl, your kismet is really extraordinary!” Xu Que said as he looked at Jiang Hongyan with a smile.
Jiang Hongyan also replied with a smile, “Your kismet is also marvelous!”
Xu Que was shocked by her reply. Then, he realized Jiang Hongyan was talking about how he got direction by throwing a shoe! However, the point was he didn’t activate his Lucky Aura just now. They could find this place probably because of Jiang Hongyan’s extraordinary kismet!
“Little brat, this is a perfect place for secluded cultivation. These Soul Marrows are enough to support our secluded cultivation for decades. I could also take this opportunity to condense that strand of soul which was taken away!” Jiang Hongyan said calmly with a faint smile. The newly found precious item didn’t cause any mood swing to her. It seemed all these precious items were quite common for her.
Xu Que was impressed by her words. If he performed secluded cultivation here, he would reach the Crossing Calamity Stage in two or three years and his Taoist Connotation would be stronger. Then, he would be able to confront the Emperor who had two Celestial Artifacts confidently!
However, according to his style, it was impossible for him to do nothing in the Road of Heavenly Ascension, which was full of uncertainties. Without creating some troubles, he would feel uncomfortable!
At this time, Buttface sneaked into the cave. When he saw the lake of the Soul Marrow, he shouted immediately as he rushed toward it. Howl! “Little brat, I didn’t expect you could find such a good place! Awesome! I will swim in that lake with the wolf paddle!”
