Chapter 991: The Red Light!

Instantly, the old man was stunned. The woman in black beside him was also struck dumb!
The invincible ancient overbearing mosquito?
Don’t try to fool us!
Could you use a more sophisticated name? Nobody will be fooled by this shabby name!
“Old man, come on, I’ve sensed my internal force can’t control it anymore. Just take out the map, so that I can whack this damn mosquito with it!” Xu Que shouted with difficulty as his face turned pale. The old man and the woman in black were so annoyed that they almost spat blood when they saw Xu Que acting apparently serious.
“Bastard! What are you doing? Just release my grandpa!” The woman in black scolded angrily.
The old man frowned and said seriously, “Young man, this is just so unscrupulous! I tried to cooperate with you sincerely. How could you do this to me?”
“I haven’t sensed any sincerity, which is the basis of cooperation, from you. Do you think I am just a three-year-old boy? Did you think I would bite any bait you threw at me?” Xu Que sneered.
If the old man had taken out the map, Xu Que would really have considered it cooperation. However, up until now, all the information provided by the old man was just a one-sided story. As a cultivator who had survived in the World of Cultivators for so many years, Xu Que would never believe others easily unless he could see the evidence with his own eyes.
Moreover, the old man didn’t want to take out the map, which meant he didn’t trust Xu Que. In this way, how could Xu Que trust the old man?
Howl! “Little brat, let me make a body search!” Buttface rushed up at this time and tried to search the old man recklessly.
The old man’s expression changed. He had seen this dog kick the Elder Young Master of the Ghost King Palace to death, which meant this dog was reckless. If the dog searched him with too much force, he would also be killed, which was something he didn’t want.
“Stop! I can take out the map myself!” The old man shouted.
“Grandpa, you….” the woman in black said hurriedly.
“It doesn’t matter! I believe this young man won’t eat his words!” The old man replied with a calm smile. Actually, he was lying through his teeth. He didn’t believe Xu Que would keep faith. Also he knew clearly that his business would only be slightly influenced even if he took out the map, so it was not as important as all that.
After all, he knew the route clearly. When the Refined Moon Palace was opened, he would go directly to the Ice Valley. If Xu Que also wanted to go there, he would melt the Ice Valley to clear the way. Then the old man could also go to the Ice Valley by following Xu Que.
“Holy crap! I thought he was an expert! I didn’t expect that he would be intimidated by my mighty power! Alas! I am just too powerful!” Buttface was quite disappointed when the old man was scared by his power and chose to be cooperative.
At this time, the old man had taken out the map. It was quite old and ripped in places where the incomplete route was printed.
“What?” Xu Que was stunned when he saw the map. He said, squinting his eyes, “It is on human skin! Old man, don’t tell me you got it from someone’s body!”
“Exactly!” The old man admitted it directly. “Indeed, it is on human skin, and I got it from a guy’s body personally. However, when I did that, the man had died!”
“Oh? How did the man die?” Xu Que asked with a smile.
The old man shook his head, “It had nothing to do with me. This guy was attacked by a trap in the Refined Moon Palace. He fell on a giant burning rock, where the map of the Refined Moon Palace was carved. Therefore, part of the map was printed on his chest. When I found him, he was already dead!”
“A giant burning rock? Why didn’t you put out the fire on the rock, so that you could get the complete map?” Xu Que asked.
The old man replied with a wry smile, “Young man, if you saw that rock, you wouldn’t say that! At that time, I approached that rock with nine other people. In the end, only I survived. That rock is surrounded by all kinds of traps. It is even protected by the Giant Rock Golems, which are at least as powerful as you!”
“Really?” Xu Que replied with a faint smile, ignoring the old man’s words. Because the old man knew nothing about his strength at all! He had killed Boss Li with the Flame Devouring Wave and the Buddha’s Fiery Lotus. If he used his most powerful magic art to throw out a Five Elements Mountain, the old man would be scared out of his wits!
The old man saw Xu Que kill Boss Li. Now he said that the Giant Rock Golems were as powerful as Xu Que, which meant those golems should at least have reached the summit of the Form Synthesis Stage or even the summit of the Crossing Calamity Stage!
“OK! I’ve remembered the map. I’ll see you outside the Refined Moon Palace in two days!” Xu Que memorized the route and told the old man with a smile. Since he had decided to enter the Refined Moon Palace, he didn’t care how many people would go with him. Anyway, he would take anything he wanted, which could never be taken away by others.
“OK! Thank you, young man! I’ll see you in two days!” The old man said with a smile.
Xu Que didn’t waste any more words. He jumped up into the sky, stepping on lightning. Then he went back to the First Realm with Jiang Hongyan and his teammates. Seeing them leaving, the woman in black asked in a low voice as she turned to the old man, “Grandpa, you are as powerful as he is! Why didn’t you capture him just now?”
“Heh, heh, he will be startled if I expose my strength too early. The current situation is just I want!” The old man smiled as the light of wisdom flashed in his eyes.
At the same time, in the sky, Jiang Hongyan said with a faint smile as she looked at Xu Que, “That old man was at least at Level 5 of the Great Vehicle Stage!”
“I know!” Xu Que said with a smile. “He tried to disguise himself to beat me! But I am not ordinary! At the very least, I am a dragon!”
Howl! “Little brat, what do you mean? Stop insulting the dragon race!” Buttface said angrily after hearing Xu Que’s words.
“Damn! Buttface, you want a good smack, right? You are more and more arrogant!” Xu Que said.
Buttface puffed out his cheat and said sturdily, “Nobody should insult the dragon race! As an unyielding and hot-blooded cultivator, I fear neither Heaven nor Earth…. Howl! Howl! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! “It hurts so much! I’m dying! I’m dying! I was wrong!”
They drifted away, clamoring loudly.
On the second day, Xu Que and his team landed outside First Realm City. They were ushered in by the Dong Family immediately. The old woman didn’t show up. Xu Que didn’t want to chat with her anyway. In the night, he slipped into Jiang Hongyan’s room. Xu Feifei had already gone to bed. Jiang Hongyan was performing cultivation by sitting on the bed with her legs crossed. When she saw Xu Que, she opened her eyes slightly. Xu Que sat beside her with a smile and started to chat. He mentioned the old woman in the Celestial Realm.
Hearing that, Jiang Hongyan was quite surprised. She didn’t realize there were so many stages after the Great Vehicle Stage, including the Half Celestial Realm, the Human Celestial Realm, the Earth Celestial Realm, the Heaven Celestial Realm, and the Golden Celestial Realm. The entire Celestial Realm was really a long route to cultivation.
“We still have a long way to go in the cultivation! When will we reach the end of it?” Jiang Hongyan sighed after a moment’s silence.
Xu Que shook his head for he didn’t know when they would end their cultivation. He didn’t think about the future like Jiang Hongyan did. Anyway, his purpose was quite simple—being immortal! Moreover, he hoped he could live happily forever!
The night was not long. Xu Que fell asleep by placing his head on Jiang Hongyan’s leg. At daybreak, Xu Que was awakened by the noisy members of the Dong Family. When he opened his eyes, he saw Jiang Hongyan’s extremely beautiful face. However, she was staring out the window seriously.
Xu Que turned to the window and was stunned by what he saw. The sky was filled with red light! This blood-red color came from a half-moon in the sky!

“Is this the Refined Moon Palace?” Xu Que was shocked. He hadn’t expected the Refined Moon Palace would be like this. It descended majestically like a half-moon with a hull of an alien spaceship! The entire palace was wrapped by dazzling red light, which covered the sky above First Realm City. Even the Second Realm was influenced by its light.
“This palace is quite extraordinary!” Jiang Hongyan replied in a low, serious voice. Jiang Hongyan was always calm. Things that made her exclaim must be extraordinary!
Xu Que also could sense a strand of fear in his heart when the Refined Moon Palace descended. He was not afraid of it. It was just the natural reaction of his body.
It seems this trip will be very fruitful! Xu Que smiled secretly to himself. The more dangerous a place was, the more treasure could be found in it. He had a vague feeling that he might obtain something very advanced, such as the Celestial Artifacts used by cultivators of the Celestial Realm.
“Little girl, just wake Feifei up! Let’s go and have a look!” Xu Que stood up and said with great interest.
“Will we take Feifei with us?” Jiang Hongyan was slightly worried by his words. She hesitated for she thought Xu Feifei could be endangered in that place because she was just an ordinary person.
“Don’t worry. She is safe with us. If we encounter dangers there, I can still use the Celestial Grade Divine Escape Spell to take all of us away!” Xu Que said with a smile. If he only had the ordinary Divine Escape Spell, he might have to consider whether they should leave Xu Feifei here. Since he already had the Celestial Grade Divine Escape Spell, there was nothing to worry about.
“OK!” Hearing that, Jiang Hongyan nodded her head. She knew Xu Que’s style quite well. He wouldn’t do anything he was not sure of! In simple terms, he was experienced and steady!
Howl! “Little brat, come out! A bad omen descends from the sky! I guess something big is going to happen!” Buttface’s anxious voice could be heard from outside at this time.
Xu Que rolled his eyes and said, shaking his head as he opened the door, “Stop your nonsense! Just prepare yourself. We will head for the Refined Moon Palace. If we can achieve our goal in this trip, we can go back to the Four Great Continents!”
“Ah? Is this the Refined Moon Palace?” Buttface was surprised as he looked at the sky as his eyes got wide. The next moment, he lay on the ground and said painfully, Howl! “I have a serious stomachache suddenly! It hurts so much! I’m dying! My stomach is full of poop!”
“I think you want to die!” Xu Que rolled up his sleeves and was about to beat Buttface up.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Suddenly, several air-rending sounds came from the sky.
“What?” Xu Que looked up in surprise.
He saw dozens of figures in red robes who were riding long sticks up in the air. Then they stopped and formed a semi-circle and started to worship devoutly facing the Refined Moon Palace.
Instantly, the red light became more dazzling as it shone from the bodies of the worshippers.
“Holy crap! What are they doing?” Xu Que asked in surprise.
“They are members of the Refined Moon Sect!” A crisp voice of a woman came up behind them, speaking. It was Elder Yu from the sect behind the Dong Family. The old woman from the Celestial Realm also arrived.
“The Refined Moon Sect? Is there a relationship between them and the Refined Moon Palace?” Xu Que asked curiously.
Elder Yu looked at the sky and said seriously, “The Refined Moon Sect is the most powerful sect in the First Realm. They are always quite mysterious. We seldom see them. It is said that the founder of this sect was a powerhouse who came out of the Refined Moon Palace several thousand years ago. He died after cultivating some apprentices of this sect. Therefore, this sect worships the Refined Moon Palace very much. Whenever the Refined Moon Palace appears, they will worship it.”
“Oh? A powerhouse came from the Refined Moon Palace? Does it mean he was also a cultivator?” Xu Que looked at the old woman as if he was asking her. After all, the cultivation method of those people in red robes was quite different. When they worshipped the Refined Moon Palace, they absorbed its red light into their bodies.
The old woman shook her head, “I don’t know about that powerhouse. However, this cultivation method must be related to the Refined Moon Palace! I guess it could be a magic art taken out by the powerhouse from the Refined Moon Palace! This Refined Moon Palace is full of danger. Also, treasures are ubiquitous in it!”
“I like a place like this!” Xu Que said with a smile.
The old woman ignored his words. She looked up and said seriously, “Lord Wang, we can go now!”
“Wait!” Xu Que turned and shouted, “Hongyan, Feifei, are you ready to go?”
“Coming!” Xu Feifei shouted as she waltzed up holding Jiang Hongyan’s hand as if they were about to go sightseeing.
“OK, that’s all of us! We can go now!” Xu Que said, nodding his head.
The old woman and Elder Yu were stunned on the spot as they looked at Xu Que in disbelief. “Lord Wang, are you….” Elder Yu opened her mouth as she looked at Xu Feifei and Xu Que but she didn’t know what to say. This is the Refined Moon Palace! How could you take an ordinary person there?
“Brother, since when have you changed your family name to Wang?” Xu Feifei asked, embarrassed.
“Hah, hah, never mind these details!” Xu Que laughed as he turned to Elder Yu and the old woman and said, “Please don’t worry. I will take my younger sister there, so that she can hang out there and train herself!”
Hang out? Train herself?
The old woman and Elder Yu were totally puzzled.
Numerous powerhouses were killed in the Refined Moon Palace! How could you say you will take your younger sister there so that she can hang out there? Train herself?
Are you crazy? Nobody could get training in this way!
“Relax! Take it easy! Why are you so nervous? I am still here! It is just a Refined Moon Palace! I can even smash it!” Xu Que said cheekily.
Frankly speaking, if he used the Nine Secrets, the People Killing Book of All Layer, and the Gautama Buddha Seal to have a head-on collision with the Refined Moon Palace, nobody knew who would win the combat. Also, Xu Que still had the Celestial Grade Divine Escape Spell to protect them. Xu Que”s carefree attitude was based on these sound protective measures.
However, the old woman and Elder Yu were speechless. They believed Xu Que was seeking death because he knew nothing about the horrible Refined Moon Palace.
The old woman, who had tried to persuade Xu Que, saw Jiang Hongyan behind Xu Feifei, and this also startled her immediately.
Her kismet is so strong! Does this woman have the Body of Kismet? The old woman was shocked as she looked at Jiang Hongyan in surprise.
Jiang Hongyan looked at the old woman and said with a faint smile, “Greetings, senior!”
Xu Que had told her that this powerful old woman had reached the Human Celestial Realm! Therefore, according to the cultivation stage and seniority, she had to call the old woman “senior”.
“What a young talent with great potentialities!” The old woman nodded her head as a strand of appreciation flashed in her eyes. Then she raised her hand and gave a purple jade plate to Jiang Hongyan.
“When you realize a breakthrough at the Great Vehicle Stage and reach the Celestial Realm by breaking the void, you could find me at the Jade Lake with this plate. You are talented enough to receive the preferential training of the Jade Lake!” The old woman said in an earnest and sincere way.
Jiang Hongyan was surprised by her words. After a short hesitation, she received the jade plate and said, nodding her head, “Thank you, senior!” She neither accepted nor rejected the old woman’s invitation. She just appreciated the kindness of a senior.
Xu Que was annoyed and darkened his face immediately. What do you mean? The Act-Tough Saint is so handsome and powerful! Why don’t you invite me? No, this is totally unbearable!
Xu Que looked at the old woman and said, reaching out his hand, “I am also here! Please give me a jade plate!”
“Eh….” the old woman was surprised a bit. Then she darkened her face and said, “Lord Wang, only female cultivators will be enrolled in Jade Lake!”
“Oh?” Xu Que’s eyes lit up an he asked, “You only have female apprentices, right?”
“Right!” The old woman nodded her head as pride flashed in her eyes. It seemed she was quite proud of her sect.
Xu Que looked at Jiang Hongyan and shouted lovingly, “Oh, my! Little girl, this jade plate is so rough. Come on, give it to me! I will be distressed if your little hand is wounded by it! Come on, let me keep it for you and leave the manual and menial work to me!”
