The Space-Breaking Spell was Xu Que’s only hope to go back to Earth!
For such a long time, he had been accumulating the Acting Tough Points so that he could amass more than 2 million Acting Tough Points in order to upgrade the System to Version 10.0 at one go! Then, he could make Space- Breaking Spells by purchasing the method of preparing this spell from the System. After that, he could tear the void open and go back to Earth!
But the Space-Breaking Spell was mentioned in this replicated map. Therefore, Xu Que couldn’t help but change his expression abruptly.
“Little brat, what’s wrong?” Jiang Hongyan asked affectionately in a low voice at this time.
“The Space-Breaking Spell is mentioned on this map. It is the only thing that could help me to go back to my hometown! Let me read these characters carefully!” Xu Que replied as he received the map. Then, he started to read the characters in the map carefully. A route map and the last words of an ancient cultivator whose name was Zhang Tiandao were contained on this hide.
According to the characters, Zhang Tiandao had also been a cultivator in the Xuanzhen Continent. However, the era when he was living was more than 10,000 years ago. He could almost be deemed as an ancient cultivator. He entered the Road of Heavenly Ascension when he reached the summit of the Crossing Calamity Stage.
At that time, the Road of Heavenly Ascension was a vast territory with abundant rare and precious resources. Even Celestial herbs could be found in it. Therefore, it was called the “back garden abandoned by the Celestials” at that time! Many people managed to become Celestials after eating the pills made from the Celestial herbs found in the Road of Heavenly Ascension.
However, Zhang Tiandao’s purpose was not to find the Celestial herbs. He found two Space-Breaking Spells in an ancient ruin, through which he could leave the Xuanzhen Continent. But he couldn’t use the Space-Breaking Spell by just activating it. He had to use it in certain places.
In a less technical way, the Space-Breaking Spell was just like a key of a Teleportation Device. The user had to use one Space-Breaking Spell in a certain Teleportation Device, so that the teleportation could be activated. The other spell was the key for the return teleportation.
According to the clues found in the ruins, he realized one portal to use the Space-Breaking Spell was located in the Road of Heavenly Ascension! Zhang Tiandao was so excited. Since there was a portal in the Road of Heavenly Ascension, the Space-Breaking Spell could definitely take him to the Celestial Realm. In this way, he wouldn’t need to reach the summit of the Great Vehicle Stage, which could take up to several hundred years!
Therefore, he went alone to the venue in the Road of Heavenly Ascension according to all the clues he had found. Then he started to walk along the road in that valley. On his way, he met a beautiful woman. They broke many restrictive spells together and obtained many rare resources.
After several months, Zhang Tiandao had fallen in love with this woman. They decided to become cultivation companions. So Zhang Tiandao decided to tell the secret of the Space-Breaking Spell to this woman. After finding that out, the woman became quite excited. They swore to be a Celestial couple in the Celestial Realm.
However, the good times didn’t last very long. They became deeply trapped in an extremely tricky killing Array on their way. It was a very weird Array. No matter how many people fell into it, they had to work together to break the Array. If they failed, half of them would be released, but the rest of the people would be trapped in that Array forever!
For her survival, the woman betrayed Zhang Tiandao by leaving the Array after robbing his storage rings. Zhang Tiandao was very angry. He spent numerous years studying that killing Array. When his life was about to end, he managed to find an opportunity. Then, he prepared these last words and the route map and teleported them out of the Array. He said the Space-Breaking Spells hadn’t been taken away. Anyone who could go into that Array with the head of that woman would get his Space-Breaking Spells!
After reading this document, Xu Que became speechless and thoughtful.
Apparently, there were several questionable points in these last words. Zhang Tiandao might have hidden something, or these last words may have just been fabricated. However, Xu Que thought the possibility of the former was higher, for it was really not necessary to fabricate those last words. And it was hard to tell whether Zhang Tiandao really had the Space-Breaking Spells.
If Zhang Tiandao really had the spells, Xu Que believed that Zhang Tiandao would have taken those spells with him. Otherwise, Zhang Tiandao didn’t need to send his last words out to ask people outside to kill the woman who had already left that Array such a long time ago.
“What did you get from these words?” Jiang Hongyan asked in a low voice at this time.
Xu Que shook his head, “There are many possibilities. However,…”
He paused a bit and looked up at the mountain. Then he said seriously, “It is worth a try! If we can get the Space-Breaking Spells, maybe we can go back to my hometown soon!”
According to Zhang Tiandao’s last words, the Space-Breaking Spell should be used at a certain portal. However, he didn’t mention where the teleportation device that contained the Space-Breaking Spell was located. Therefore, those portals could be the Void Cracks, which could be activated with the Space- Breaking Spells. After setting the course, he could go back to Earth.
Although it was just all speculation, Xu Que still decided to give it a try. As long as he could obtain the Space-Breaking Spell, he would know what he should do next.
“Are you going to enter that mountain? But,…” Jiang Hongyan’s expression changed slightly.
Xu Que interrupted her. “I know there are Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes in that mountain. It doesn’t matter. Nothing could scare me away, no matter if it is zombie, vampire, or alien! I must go home!”
“OK, I’ll go with you!” Jiang Hongyan stopped trying to persuade Xu Que not to go and agreed to accompany him, nodding her head without hesitation. Her reaction made Xu Que hesitate. After all, he hadn’t seen the Heaven- Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes before. He was not sure he could defeat the insects. If Jiang Hongyan went with him, he might not be able to protect her.
“Let’s go, little brat! This time you are not allowed to take a risk alone!” Jiang Hongyan said in a low voice with a faint smile.
Xu Que was surprised. Then he touched his nose lamely. When Jiang Hongyan was about to go back to the Xuanzhen Continent alone, she might have had the same idea that he would be endangered if he went with her. Jiang Hongyan’s words reminded Xu Que that she wouldn’t allow Xu Que to risk his life alone!
Howl! “Little brat, I have something urgent to handle, farewell!” Buttface was terrified and was about to escape after realizing that Xu Que was going to deal with those horrible Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes.
Xu Que reached out his hand to grab Buttface. Then, he said with a smile, “Buttface, your urgent business can be handled after this!”
Howl! “No! I really have urgent business to handle!”
“Crap! Little brat, let me go! I don’t want to go there!”
“Damn! I don’t want to die!”
Buttface did his best to struggle and shout.
His reaction was ignored by Xu Que.
This time we may really need the assistance of Buttface. I can’t let him escape!
Then, Xu Que turned around and said with a smile, holding Jiang Hongyan’s hand, “Let’s go!”
“OK!” Jiang Hongyan nodded her head with a charming smile on her face.
They jumped up into the sky and started to dash toward the mountain. The cultivators who had just escaped from there were totally stunned and couldn’t help but gasp!
“Aren’t they afr…afraid of death? How dare they go back?”
“Forget about them. Let’s leave the Road of Heavenly Ascension as soon as possible!”
“By the way, don’t you feel that woman looks quite familiar?”
“Crap! How can you be in the mood to talk about this now?”
“She is really a perfect woman! I didn’t speak just now because I was stunned by such a flawless woman who I had never seen the likes of before in my whole life!”
“No! What are you talking about? Don’t you feel she is quite like the one who disappeared for several hundred years?”
“What? Could she be…?”
“Holy crap! That reminds me!”
“The Empress of the Tong Tian Nation! The fiancee of the Saint Palace’s Young Master!”
