Two bright strands of light were flashing up in the sky toward the mountain in the distance.
“Little girl, tell me something about the Saint Palace!” Xu Que turned to Jiang Hongyan on their way.
The cultivators who had run out of the mountain away from the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes had told Xu Que that the Celestial Searching Map of Zhang Tiandao had been distributed by the Saint Palace. Since everyone believed that, it meant that the Saint Palace must be quite prestigious in the Xuanzhen Continent.
Also, they had said that some of the Saint Palace’s apprentices were also there, which meant it couldn’t be a conspiracy planned by the Saint Palace.
However, Xu Que didn’t believe the story at all. For him, if the Saint Palace was powerful enough, why didn’t they search for the fortune and opportunities after obtaining that map? On the contrary, they distributed the map to the public, which had attracted so many people for the search. This was quite weird!
“The Saint Palace is a power established by the high officials during the reign of the Tong Tian Nation’s first Emperor. It absorbs all kinds of smart and genius talents in this world. Till now, it has held a development history of several thousand years! The current Leader of the Saint Palace is Wei Tianli, who is called Master Wei by the public. He has reached the summit of the Great Vehicle Stage and is as powerful as the Emperor. Therefore, the Saint Palace is almost as powerful as the Tong Tian Nation!” Jiang Hongyan said calmly.
“Oh? It seems this Saint Palace is quite remarkable!” Xu Que smiled. He was increasingly confident about his guess. Since the Saint Palace was so powerful, why did it share its information with the public?
Could it be that all members of the Saint Palace are really saints? Heh-heh, that’s impossible! Except for the Act-Tough Saint, nobody in the World of Cultivators could be deemed as a good person!
“There is another issue!” Jiang Hongyan said as she grabbed Xu Que’s hand suddenly.
Xu Que was surprised. “What?”
In my past life, the Emperor betrothed me to Wei Zixun who is the Young Master of the Saint Palace to enhance the relationship between the Imperial Palace and the Saint Palace. It was well-known then, but I didn’t agree. I said I would start secluded cultivation instead. Five years later, they worked a plot together to control me. Then, they reincarnated me by killing me with Celestial Artifacts and mysterious magic arts!
After saying that, Jiang Hongyan looked at Xu Que gently with a faint smile, “Therefore, when you go into that mountain later, you might meet Wei Zixun and the rest of the members of the Saint Palace and the Imperial Palace!”
“A…betrothal? It’s OK! It was something that happened in your past life. And you didn’t marry him at least. It is just a small issue! Even if I meet them later, I will just wave and smile at them!” Xu Que said with a smile, after being stunned for a short while. Actually, he was extremely unhappy in his heart.
A small issue?
Are you kidding?
This is definitely a serious issue!
How dare the Imperial Palace and the Saint Palace cast eyes at my woman! It is unacceptable even it happened in her past life! If I meet them, I will absolutely skin them alive!
This is me, a strong and staunch man!
“Little brat, you can just ignore that. If they disrespect you, I will punish them personally!” Jiang Hongyan said in a low voice at this time. A faint smile showed in her extremely charming face. She fixed her beautiful eyes on the mountain, which was so close to them. Her temperament became that of an overbearing Empress and was just like it had been when she killed those generals and imperial guards outside the Imperial Palace!
Xu Que couldn’t help but start to feel sympathy for the people of the Saint Palace and the Imperial Palace. If you are in the hands of my Hongyan, most of you will die instead of being skinned alive!
At the same time, they landed on the mountain successfully.
Buttface, who had stopped his struggling, was looking quite dispirited, as if he had lost hope for his life! His appearance amused Xu Que.
“Buttface, what’s wrong with you? Are you afraid of heights?”
“Nonsense! I don’t want to go here at all! Why do you force me to do that? If you are not a coward, just release me and go there yourself!” Buttface shouted angrily for he was annoyed by Xu Que’s words.
“Oh? Really?” Xu Que asked with a smile.
“Really! Let me go for I don’t want to go with you!” Buttface shouted.
“Fine!” Xu Que dropped Buttface and said with a faint smile, “Buttface, I planned to take you to my hometown after finding the Space Breaking Spell. Since you don’t want to go with me, I won’t force you to do that!”
Buttface ran for several hundred meters after landing on the ground. Then he stopped and said arrogantly, Puff! “As an experienced and knowledgeable cultivator, I don’t need to go to your hometown! Little brat, the predestined relationship between us ends here. We’ll meet again if fate wills it. Farewell!”
After saying that, Buttface turned around and was about to leave.
Xu Que grinned, “By the way, Buttface, let me tell you a secret. Actually, my Smelly Tofu, grilled chicken wings, and burgers can be bought in each street in my hometown, and they are also very cheap there. You can buy numerous shops with one Low-Grade Spirit Stone. With two Spirit Stones, you can.…”
Before Xu Que had finished his words, Buttface had rushed back. Then he said, looking at Xu Que excitedly, “What could I get with two Spirit Stones?”
“You can hire a lot of people as your underlings. They will obey your orders and call you the Mighty King, and even fight for a place to do massage for you!” Xu Que said with a smile.
Hearing that, Buttface trembled all over. A cloud of righteous Qi gushed out from his body immediately!
Buttface patted his chest with his paw, which made a dull sound. Then he said sonorously, “Little brat, that’s enough! I have gone through fire and water together with you for so many times! How could I turn my back on you now? I was joking just now. Let’s go! I’ll lead you to the entrance of that valley!”
After saying that, Buttface rushed up to the forefront and started to lead the way actively.
Jiang Hongyan was totally embarrassed by his reaction. Then she said with a smile as she looked at Xu Que snappily, “You fooled him again, right?”
“Alas! Little girl, you wrong me this time! What I said just now is true. If you go there, you will be worshipped by everyone in that world every day as a Goddess!” Xu Que said with a smile.
He had started to imagine the carefree life on Earth when he went back together with all his mistresses! He could even act tough at will there!
Led by Buttface, Xu Que arrived at the entrance of the valley together with his great expectations and fantasies! Numerous human bones were scattered at the entrance of the valley. The blood and flesh of those victims had already been sucked up. They didn’t even find a drop of blood on the ground. However, luckily, they didn’t find those Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes either! It was very quiet in this place!
They found many new footprints at the entrance, which meant someone had entered that valley ahead of them.
“Holy crap! How many people have been killed? How could they fail to kill even one Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquito?” Buttface asked in surprise as he looked at the bones on the ground.
Xu Que also became serious. This was the thing he most worried about. So many people had died miserably, but they had failed to kill even one Heaven- Devouring Demonic Mosquito! It meant those mosquitoes were really powerful!
“Let’s go and have a look inside!” Xu Que said
Anyway, they had to enter the valley. The Space Breaking Spells might be hidden in this area. If he could find them, he didn’t need to wait to upgrade the System when he had enough Acting Tough Points! Moreover, he could also find a way to deal with those Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes, which he knew only as small insects!
