“Look into my eyes!” Xu Que yelled again, and the golden brilliance in his eyes flared. It was as if an endless sea of golden flames engulfed the entirety of the white-clad woman, unstoppable and all-devouring. In the end, the white-clad woman froze in place with no life in her eyes.
“It’s an illusion…no, an Orbs Spell!” The eight-headed snake shivered in fear, drenched in cold sweat. It was lucky that it did not offend this demon, it thought.
The Orbs Spell has existed since ancient times. It is a mysterious and powerful spell that could drag a person into an imaginary realm without laying down any formation, so long as the caster had a strong enough True Core Strength and Taoist Connotation.
Xu Que became the successor of the Pupils of the Fire Eyes when he left the Five Elements Mountain. He couldn’t practice it back then, but he had coincidentally obtained a rune under Tai Shan. The rune completed the legacy and allowed Xu Que to inherit one of the Five Elements Heavenly Pupils—the Pupils of the Fire Eyes—without the restraints on his Taoist Connotation. With a flicker of his mind, he could immediately construct an illusory realm of fire and pull anyone into it.
Right now, while the white-clad woman seemed unharmed standing where she was, her consciousness was actually in the midst of an unforgiving sea of flames. The golden fire shone like liquid gold, and the glare of the flames was more piercing than the sun’s rays. No one could stare at it directly. The body formed from the white-clad woman’s consciousness stood upright amid the sea of fire. All of her clothes were burned off the moment she entered the realm, and her soul was being punished and destroyed by the flames. It was as if someone had captured her soul and put her through a sacrificial refinement trial.
“Ah…!” She screamed in agony. Her long hair was tied into a ponytail as she stood in the flames like a female demoness sealed into suffering. However, she was unable to break free. The shackles formed from Xu Que’s Taoist Connotation imprisoned not only her True Core Strength but also her very soul. There was nowhere to run.
Boom! ( Boxno vel. co m )
Suddenly, she heard a low thud from the inside. To her, it was like heavenly thunder had broken out within her body. The white-clad woman, however, felt a relaxing wave of soothing bliss wash over all of her. Her body lightened at once. It was as if someone had lifted a heavy burden off her shoulders.
“This is….” Her heart throbbed vigorously as astonishment and disbelief filled her face.
At the same time, outside the illusory realm, at the peak of Kunlun Mountain, the body of the white-clad woman slightly swayed as blood spilled from the corners of her mouth. Stone walls began to dissolve gradually. The cave born out of the illusory spell is slowly dissipating. The formation is falling apart.
“The formation is about to be gone?” The astounded eight-headed snake was shocked. Exhilaration filled its eyes. Being suppressed for a little more than 10,000 year had made him weak with loneliness and solitude. Although asleep for most of the time, how could it possibly survive the remaining 4.9 million years? Now that the spell was about to disintegrate, it meant that it was about to be free.
“Breaking an illusory spell with another illusory spell—I am the only one in the whole world that could think of such a genius idea!” Xu Que laughed.
The white-clad woman had mentioned that the illusory spell was built based on herself, a Shadow Replica. Therefore, Xu Que made use of the Orbs Spell and pulled her into the Illusory Spell of Flames. It equated to pulling the entire illusory spell into his own illusory spell, forcefully destroying it from within. What he was doing was just being the big fish that swallowed a smaller fish. It was either he ruptured his stomach and dies or he digests the other party whole.
However, forXu Que, he didn’t need to worry about dying from overeating. The power of the Orbs Spell was so unimaginably vast that breaking an old illusory spell was a piece of cake.
At last, the entire spell crashed down as all of the stone walls fell away like melted snow. Everything reverted back to their original appearances. The protruding mountain peak was still the same mountain peak; however, the ruins of ancient buildings could now be seen. They stretched for miles and miles, suggesting just how big the Kunlun Celestial Sect once was.
“All hail the Revered Immortal!” The eight-headed snake let out a long wail as tears rolled down its cheeks. How could it not be? After being suppressed for 10,000 years, it has finally gotten rid of the seal and regained its freedom.
“Argh, who? Who did this? Where’s my Flat Peach?’ Buttface suddenly appeared. He held a pawful of snow that he had nibbled more than halfway through. Traces of snow could be found on the corners of his mouth, suggesting that he had taken snow as a flat peach after falling for the illusory spell. Now that the spell had vanished, Buttface was furious as he thought that someone had stolen his flat peach. Thundering with anger, he looked all around with raging eyes, as if trying to stare the perpetrator to death.
Across from Buttface, Xu Feifei sat on the ground as Jiang Hongyan protected her with the Good Fortune Jade Disk. It resisted the illusory realm and ensured the safety of both of them. Now that the spell was demolished, they could finally see Buttface and Xu Que again. They both heaved sighs of relief and quickly ran in their direction.
“What’s this all about?” Jiang Hongyan asked.
Xu Que smiled and shook his head. “It was nothing. We just got trapped in an illusory spell. A blessing in disguise, though! We obtained a nine-headed snake with one head severed. We could bring it back and make it into our Mountain Guardian Beast!”
Jiang Hongyan and the others all paused at Xu Que’s words, including Buttface. They all turned toward the eight-headed snake. The eight-headed snake was stunned too. It looked at Xu Que, flustered, almost hoping that it had heard him wrong. “O…O Revered Immortal, p…please don’t do that! I finally broke free of the seal. Why would you also want to capture me and make me your Mountain Guardian Beast? I know not a darn thing about how to guard a mountain!”
“Why are you so uptight? I’m doing this for your own good! What future do you have staying here? Come with me to the World of Cultivation. Over there, there is an abundance of Spiritual Qi. Cultivate for a couple of years, and you will transform into a nine-headed dragon and step into the Celestial Stage! By then, the meat quality would be fresh, bouncy, and juicy, one bite and the whole mouth would be filled with…cough, cough, don’t misunderstand. I’m not talking about you!”
Xu Que laughed when he saw the eight-headed snake sweating buckets of cold sweat out of sheer terror. Helplessness filled the face of the snake as it whimpered, “Revered Immortal…I…I don’t wanna go….”
“You’re not going? Sigh. “All right then. I had wanted to give you a gift of enlightenment, seeing that you’re quite clever. Since it’s not what you wanted, I won’t force you to accept it.” Xu Que waved his hand.
The eight-headed snake immediately heaved a sigh of relief. It replied gratefully, “Thank you, Revered Immortal, for your kindness!”
“It’s okay! No need to be this polite!” Xu Que waved his hand again and looked toward Buttface. He shouted, “Buttface, Buttface, why are you just standing there, stunned? Come see your relative! Don’t be shy! Come over quick and bring the pot. We will have snake stew tonight!”
“Are you serious? Snake stew sounds delicious!” Buttface’s eyes immediately lit up with glee and surprise. When it turned to the eight-headed snake, it scanned it from head to toe as if contemplating about how he should enjoy a plate of delicacy, and he could not help but drool. The eight-headed snake was, however, scared out of its wits. Once the tyrant of Earth, it once had a majestic and awe-inspiring existence. Who would have thought that when it re-entered the world 10,000 years later, he would become food for others!
Snake your ass!
“Revered Immortal, please, quit playing with me. I will go! I will just go to the World of Cultivation, all right?” cried the snake, looking devastated.
“Huh? Do you mean you changed your mind? Don’t push yourself, the thing I hate most in the world is to force people into doing things! If you really don’t wish to go, I won’t stop you!” Xu Que said caringly.
The eight-headed snake answered determinedly, “It is not forced, not forced at all!”
“Umph, okay then! Buttface, put away the pot. We will be drinking northwest wind tonight instead!”
“Northwest wind? Don’t do that to me! I wanna eat snake stew, snake stew!” Buttface was hurt. He dropped to the ground and began to rub its body on the ground furiously, throwing a tantrum like a very spoiled child.
Without a word, Xu Que went up and kicked Buttface, who quieted down at once.
Almost at the same time, a white silhouette walked down slowly from the mountaintop. It was the white-clad woman, the Shadow Replica of the Master of Kunlun. With hair all the way to her waist, her ethereal face seemed pale and drained of blood. However, she could hardly contain the happiness on her face.
Her True Core Strength was still locked by Xu Que’s Taoist Connotation, and so she could only walk down toward them. She looked toward Xu Que and said, “Thank you, young master! I could never repay you for your great benevolence. If you think that I am still of some worth, I am willing to be your servant for ten years! I’m entirely yours for these ten years!”
“You can’t!” Xu Feifei and Buttface immediately exclaimed in unison.
