Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
What the crap was with this situation?
A great battle is imminent, and you’re still in the mood to cook and eat?
The Imperial Palace powerhouses were extremely dissatisfied. However, under the immense pressure of Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan’s auras and gazes, they had no choice but to follow Buttface in collecting firewood.
Once sure that they had left, Xu Que turned to Jiang Hongyan and smiled slightly, “Little Miss, any plans?”
“Can you deal with this?” Jiang Hongyan was also calm. She looked at Xu Que, as unwavering as still water.
“Of course! I just wanted to see what tricks they have up their sleeves. Anyway, this place will only be under lockdown for a month. It’s no fun if we kill them off too quickly!” Xu Que shrugged.
Jiang Hongyan nodded softly and smiled. Of course, she knew that Xu Que was entirely capable of wiping out these Heavenly Humans. Not just Xu Que, but Jiang Hongyan herself was also capable of annihilating these hundreds of Heavenly Human powerhouses all by herself, including the three strongmen at Level 3 of the Great Vehicle Stage.
However, Xu Que had not made his move back then and instead had brought them here. That was what had surprised Jiang Hongyan.
“To be honest, I have two plans in mind.”
Xu Que continued, “First, I’m planning to find out more about how to activate the Space- Breaking Spell while playing with them. Second, you could cultivate at ease during this month, and merge that piece of soul in the God-realization Tree into your body. I reckon that there will be a brutal battle after they lift the seal of this place!”
They had no idea of how immensely rich these Heavenly Humans were or how deep their foundations ran. However, one thing for sure was that they should not belittle them.
Since they now had the luxury of a dangerless month, it was an excellent opportunity to prepare themselves.
Once Jiang Hongyan had entirely incorporated that piece of soul, her prowess would enter a new level. If she fought together with Xu Que, they wouldn’t lose, even before a powerhouse such as the Emperor!
However, the ladies of the Exquisite Beauty Pavilion were shocked speechless. In such a crucial situation, at such a dangerous place, he is telling the Empress to go into secluded cultivation for a month?
“Okay!” Jiang Hongyan seemed to have guessed Xu Que’s intent. She nodded without any hesitation.
“I’ll find a good place for you!” Xu Que smiled. Under the horrified gazes of the Exquisite Beauty Pavilion ladies, he scanned the surroundings for a suitable place. He observed the surrounding landscape with the Dragon Searching Spell and quickly found a place filled with Spiritual Qi – an ancient tree. The ancient tree had a hole; within it, strands of Wooden True Core flowed and circulated. It was bursting with life, a rare location that was remarkably suited for cultivation.
“Here then!” Xu Que landed in front of the tree and turned to Jiang Hongyan.
“Okay!” Jiang Hongyan stepped into the hole in the tree and sat down. She then took out the God-realization tree.
With a big wave, Xu Que took out the Soul Marrow Essence he had previously obtained. Although he had brought along a piece of the Soul Marrow Crystal, which would be more powerful, Jiang Hongyan had needed just one month to merge with the soul. Even the Soul Marrow Essence was a bit excessive, so using the Soul Marrow Crystal would be unnecessary.
“Little Miss, sit tight! I’ll create a Soul Gathering Array with the Soul Marrow Essence!”
As soon as Xu Que said that, he put his fingers together and dabbed some Soul Marrow Essence in them. He then flung it toward the hole in the tree.
With every flick of his fingers, milky white Soul Marrow Essence went into the air and turned into beautiful curves. Like brilliantly shining stars, they flew toward Jiang Hongyan and encircled her, creating the formation.
At last, the formation was complete, and the Array crystallized by the Soul Marrow Essence transformed into a white halo blanketing Jiang Hongyan.
“It’s enough, little one!” Seeing that Xu Que was intent on continuing, Jiang Hongyan laughed as she stopped him from wasting the Soul Marrow Essence. This small Array was enough to sustain her cultivation for two or three months. There was no need to strengthen it further.
Xu Que examined the Array and nodded. He stopped the essence when he deemed that it was enough.
“Remember to come back in a month!” Jiang Hongyan finally closed her beautiful eyes as she smiled gently, entering secluded meditation. The God-realization tree in front of her also began to shine. Slowly, that piece of soul that was suppressed for countless years finally seeped out.
“Just a little more, I think!” Xu Que pondered for a moment and put together his two fingers again. One shot, then another, he released more and more Soul Marrow Essence into the formation. Threads of milky white essence glittered and shone, like the Milky Way in the sky. They flew toward the hole in the tree and solidified the formation, boosting its Spiritual Qi.
The ladies of the Exquisite Beauty Pavilion were stunned. They might not know about the God-realization tree, but they certainly recognized the Soul Marrow Essence. Xu Wue’s generosity moved them very much, and they could not believe their eyes.
“These…are these all Soul Marrow Essence?”
“My god, he has so much!”
“He shot a lot!”
“I think that even the Imperial Palace could not take out so much at one go!”
The ladies were awed, and envy filled their eyes. If someone who would spend that much on them existed in the world, what more would they ask?
“Little fairies of the Exquisite Beauty Pavilion, my Hongyan is preparing to practice in secluded cultivation for a month! Would you stay here and protect her?” Xu Que asked politely while looking at the ladies.
“What?” The female disciples of the Exquisite Beauty Pavilion were shocked at his words.
To stay here and guard the Empress?
Is that a joke? They can’t do that!
It’s apparent that the Heavenly Humans greatly outnumbered them. How could they possibly divide their headcount to stay guard here?
It sounded like a terrible plan!
“Rest assured! Those mere Heavenly Humans are nothing to me. I can defeat them all alone, so stay guard here and don’t worry about anything. I’ve seen the character of the Exquisite Beauty Pavilion, and I trust you all!” Xu Que smiled and waved. He suddenly pulled out a Spell Disk and set down an Array of Spiritual Level. He clicked his fingers, and with a swoosh, the Array flew toward the humongous, ancient tree, laying down a protective Array of Spiritual Level.
The ladies of the Exquisite Beauty Pavilion were speechless.
Didn’t you say that you trust our characters?
What’s the meaning of setting up a defense barrier right after saying that you trust us?
“Don’t misunderstand, ladies. I’m just worried that the Heavenly Humans could attack us sneakily!” Xu Que grinned, thick-skinned as ever.
Although he felt that the Exquisite Beauty Pavilion could be trusted based on these few days of interactions, it is always better to be safe than sorry. The merger of Jiang Hongyan’s soul was extremely crucial. There could be no mistakes!
“It’s all right! However, fellow cultivator, are you sure that you don’t need us to help fend off the Heavenly Humans?” The tall lady from the Exquisite Beauty Pavilion asked in apprehension. That was also what the rest of the ladies wondered. They knew that Xu Que was unbelievably powerful. If not, it would have been impossible for him to devastate the Saint Palace to this extent!
However, in the face of several hundred Heavenly Human powerhouses, of which almost all were at the Crossing Calamity Stage, how was he going to take them on? Not to mention that there were also two strongmen at Level 3 of the Great Vehicle Stage, making their disparity in strength even greater.
“Of course I don’t need your help! I won’t let anyone who steals my kills off easily!” Xu Que said in all seriousness. He then turned and looked in the great distance. His lips pulled into a slight smile. His figure moved!
Swoosh! A bolt of lightning cut across the sky, taking Xu Que forward into distant lands.
