The Hidden Dragon Continent was borderless and vast.
The continent's middle part was filled with unceasing mountain ranges. Some mountain range bloomed with five-colored halo, while some jutted up into the sky like sharp swords. Those mountain ranges had their own features, but they all had immensely abundant spirit energy.
The Hidden Dragon Royal Court was made of the Seven Great Holy Lands and many smaller forces. The Seven Great Holy Lands held the supreme power as they were the ruling forces of the Royal Court.
The Heavenly Holy Land was the most mysterious Holy Land in the Royal Court. It was somewhat more supernatural and mysterious than the others.
A meandering and peacefully secluded place, it was situated in a valley in the middle of the continent. It neither had the imposing structures like the other Holy Lands, nor the impressive and massive city walls that could give people terrible pressure.
Simple houses situated in every corner of the valley.
Just like blooming fruits, the black-tiled and white-walled houses of the community had created a mysterious formation, which created an unceasing flow of energy circulating around the valley.
A house's door squeaked open. The Celestial Saintess, who was wearing a thin white silk dress with a veil covering her face, slowly walked out of the house. She was holding a small star compass. Her long eyelashes shivered.
She walked to another house and waited for a long time. When she heard the call from the house, she pushed the door open to step inside.
Inside the house was another world. The space expanded, which had made the house several times bigger than it looked.
The room had a round star compass around ten meters in diameter. So many stars were moving on that star compass, twinkling beautifully.
An old woman with an amiable face and well-combed white hair was standing by the star compass, holding a staff in her hand. She was gazing at something on the table.
After the Celestial Saintess entered the room, she stood quietly aside.
"Little girl, I know why you came to me... You've come to the Valley of Gluttony and met the one you wanted to see. But there are some things you need to let go." The old woman stretched her hands over the star compass, talking casually.
"Although the Hidden Dragon Continent looks calm and auspicious now, winds have risen and clouds have drifted. Dangers are everywhere... If we didn't have the Great Rule suppressed then, the brutal Netherworld creatures would have soon invaded us, turning the Hidden Dragon Continent to hell on earth."
The Celestial Saintess's long eyelashes shivered. She wanted to say something, but she couldn't open her mouth.
"I know you're here to ask to go to the Valley of Gluttony one more time. But this time, I won't allow you." The old woman finally lifted her head, her calm eyes looking at the Celestial Saintess. "After one hundred years, you're the first one who can trigger the Heavenly Star Catcher Disk. I won't let you take risks."
"But... Grannie Mo, you know, the Valley of Gluttony's inheritance is basically a trap..." The Celestial Saintess finally opened her mouth.
"Say no more. Death or life, it's destined. Fate controls everything. You can't interfere with it deliberately. The Heavenly Holy Land taught you the secret technique not to let you help people... You're supposed to be able to control the Heavenly Star Catcher Disk soon! As long as you can understand the mysteries of the Heavenly Star Catcher Disk to see the events beforehand, we can have hope to survive in the future..."
"All the Holy Lands have prepared room for maneuver. How could you mess up the Heavenly Holy Land's arrangement because of one person?" added the old woman.
The Celestial Saintess had a light moving in her eyes. Eventually, she sighed dispiritedly.
"Don't mind the things in the Valley of Gluttony... The Rule of the Great Path is changing. Don't you see more stars glowing on the Heavenly Star Catcher Disk? The Great Void existences appear more and more on the Hidden Dragon Continent. You know what it means..."
After a pause, the old woman continued with, "Go back now. Without thinking and worrying about those things, you can understand the mysteries of the Heavenly Star Catcher Disk. Once you can, you will have the power to control fate."
The Celestial Saintess remained silent for a long time before turning around and leaving.
The old woman held the staff, her eyes deep and profound. Her hands made some mysterious hand seals, striking on the star compass in front of her.
Radiance immediately bloomed on the table. So many stars began to move in a mysterious trajectory...
"Oh? The Valley of Gluttony has another chaotic star twinkling? Something will happen to the Valley of Gluttony's inheritance this time?" The old woman furrowed her brows. She took a deep breath as she watched the star, which was shining brighter than usual.
The Valley of Gluttony
People couldn't let go of the excitement in their hearts, and it's all thanks to the fascinating cooking battle that would take place tomorrow.
That arrogant little chef was going to use his power alone to battle against the three chefs from the top ten of the Tablet of Gluttony.
His arrogance was simply something unimaginable to them, and many people thought that he had lost his mind.
A Chef's Challenge would consume a lot of energy and effort to cook a dish. For that dish, some people had even exhausted his power, consuming a lot of his spirit, energy, and even soul.
Ordinary people couldn't endure more than one cooking battle, while that chef was planning to do three cooking battles at the same time! It was like taking his life to war!
Nonetheless, everybody was anticipating the upcoming Chef's Challenge. Perhaps they were all waiting to see Bu Fang get defeated, but to some people, they were anticipating whether Bu Fang could create a miracle or not.
Noodle King Restaurant
Today, the Noodle King Restaurant was closed. They didn't do business today.
Outside the kitchen, many chefs were surrounding the closed door, their faces heavy and complicated.
They didn't know what Noodle King Ouyang Chenfeng was doing in the kitchen, and all they could do was to wait for him.
Not only Noodle King, but Jade Bamboo Wang Tong had also locked himself in his house, unceasingly moving back and forth as he prepared for the match tomorrow.
As for Reverie Knife Lu Tao, he was very confident in his knife skills. This time, he wanted to use his special knife skills to compete against that dark horse chef and smash him.
Inside a hotel in the Gluttony God City
Bu Fang turned off the kitchen light, walking out. He didn't do any complicated practice.
After he reached his room, he laid down. His breath became steady as he drifted away in his sleep.
Late at night, the autumn wind blew the leaves, rolling them in the void.
The next day, at dawn, the entire Gluttony God City was bustling after a quiet night. The Gluttony Square had welcomed a large crowd of audience.
They had surrounded the Gluttony God Building, making it almost watertight. No matter what, the cooking battle today would be extremely exciting. One versus three had never happened in the history of Chef's Challenge!
The highlight was the chef that had challenged the three chefs of the Tablet of Gluttony.
Noodles, bamboo shoots, and knife skills-these were the themes Bu Fang had chosen to battle against the three chefs... simultaneously.
The difficulty of this battle would be extreme. It was so beyond the usual level that even first-grade chefs wouldn't dare to swagger like that.
Actually, once they got in the top ten of the Tablet of Gluttony, the difference between their cooking skills would be reduced gradually.
After Bu Fang got up, he went to the kitchen to practice his knife skills and cooking. Then, he took Xiao Ya and Whitey, left the hotel, and walked on the street that was filled with the air of the ending autumn.
The weather seemed to turn colder.
As Bu Fang was walking to the Gluttony Square, the place was already packed with people.
Two humans and a robot followed the current of people, slowly getting in the Gluttony Square. Greeting them was the deafening noises and uproars.
The others had also gotten to their seats.
The top three chefs, the Great Elder, and the Sixth Elder appeared, taking their seats as the judges.
The stove stations on the arena had changed, and the arrangement of the stations was filled with hostile aura.
Ouyang Chenfeng, Wang Tong, and Lu Tao had their stoves arranged in a triangle formation, surrounding Bu Fang's stove. The aura of the three chefs was like a tough wall that nothing could break.
Bu Fang indifferently raked his eyes through the other three, his face also stern.
A Chef's Challenge against three chefs created a huge pressure on Bu Fang. However, that pressure would become motivation that would help him progress!
As Bu Fang wanted to become the God of Cooking who topped the food chain in the fantasy world, he had to force himself to grow faster.
Today, Chu Changsheng wore a loose robe, his face solemn.
He walked to the center of the arena, looking at the four chefs. At this moment, the four chefs were releasing their auras and fighting will.
Thus, he didn't talk much. Without further ado, he announced the start of the Chef's Challenge.
Anyway, this cooking battle seemed to be the most intense and suspenseful among all the cooking battles he had ever judged.
One versus three... Bu Fang was simply a madman!
"Everything is ready. This time, the chefs will use the same ingredients and will compete on cooking skills. I hope you guys will have a cooking battle to your heart's content," said Chu Changsheng naturally.
The cooking ingredients were then pulled to the arena, and their spirit energy fumed everywhere.
Wheat flour, some radiant bamboo shoots, and a pile of spirit fruits-these were the ingredients for this battle.
In the previous battle, Bu Fang had used Taotie meat, which had helped him won easily. That was why the ingredients were now provided, preventing Taotie meat from being used in this battle as it was simply cheating.
Many people didn't know why Bu Fang had Taotie meat. If Bu Fang were to use that kind of cooking ingredient again, even Yan Yu would find it hard to defeat him.
Noodle King Ouyang Chenfeng wore a solemn face. He was a little excited, his face shivering.
He had never thought that he would stand on the arena to battle against Bu Fang. Bu Fang's knife-cut noodles had touched him. However... He would never yield!
After all, as the Noodle King, he had his pride!
The kitchen knife that was as thin as the cicada's wing appeared, sparkling with its light.
Jade Bamboo Shoot Wang Tong was holding a kitchen knife that looked like a jade knife. He gave Bu Fang an indifferent look.
It was the Broken Jade Knife, a knife that was close to a famous knife!
Reverie Knife Lu Tao gazed at Bu Fang, his fighting will rocketing up into the sky.
This time, they must protect the Valley of Gluttony's reputation!
They must not lose because they represented the Valley of Gluttony. If the three of them were all defeated by that arrogant chef, the Valley of Gluttony wouldn't have any face left!
Green smoke wound around Bu Fang's arm, and the Dragon Bone Kitchen Knife arose. He grabbed it, his eyes nonchalant.
"If all of you are ready... Begin!"
Outside the Valley of Gluttony
The void shook for a while, then, a massive space crack appeared. A cold metal warship slowly flew out of the crack. The flag of the Heavenly Spring Holy Land fluttered in the wind.
An old man carrying a giant God Slaying Axe on his shoulder stood on the front deck of the warship, his deep eyes gazing at the Gluttony God City!
