Everyone present was dumbstruck.
Digging their bone ashes?
That’s f*cking immoral!
He could have done so many things, but he chose to dig bone ashes!
“So what if I dig out your ashes? Do you have a problem with that? Jump out and hit me if you’ve got the guts!” Xu Que yelled haughtily and provokingly at the tombstones.
The Remnant Souls under the tombstones burst into anger. They yelled unintelligibly as they tried to break out of their coffins and fight Xu Que. However, they were left with but a strand of Remnant Soul. While they were conscious, they could do nothing but watch Xu Que hack into their graves and dig out their ashes.
The remnant souls bellowed and shrilled:
“Beast, you beast!”
“You…just wait! You will never obtain the ultimate treasure within the spell restriction!”
Xu Que, however, kept the shameless smile on his face as he cheerfully retrieved the Bone Ash Urns from under the tombstones.He was surprised that these powerhouses were buried in the form of ashes. It definitely saved him the trouble of refining bone ashes from their remains. The best news was that among these batches of bone ashes, he managed to find an urn with black bone ashes.
“System, quick, analyze if these ashes are pure enough!” Xu Que summoned the System and asked at once.
Ding! “After analyzing, the purity of the Undying White Bone Ashes is 96 percent, which is an extremely suitable ingredient for the Space-Breaking Spell. The purity of the Undying Black Bone Ashes is 99 percent, which is an extremely suitable ingredient for the Space-Breaking Spell.”
Ding! “Congratulations to the host for gathering all the ingredients for the Space-Breaking Spell. Would you like to make the spell now?”
Xu Que nodded. “Yes. Begin to make it!”
Ding! “The automated process of making the Space-Breaking Spell has begun. It is estimated to be complete in 120 hours.”
The System replied and generated a mission window, showing the refinement process.
Xu Que exited the System interface directly and looked down at the utterly battered graveyard. The Remnant Souls were still bellowing in great fury.
“Scoundrel! Put those bone ashes back!”
“Stealing bone ashes from the dead is absolutely immoral! Beware of the lightning that strikes from above!”
“Return my bone ashes to where they were!”
“Don’t even think about threatening us with the bone ashes. Now that you’ve done it, we would never open the restrictive spell unless you kowtow to us and admit that you were wrong!”
“Right, right, what he said was right!”
The Remnant Souls were stubborn. They have decided to fight Xu Que to the end!
Xu Que, on the other hand, was calm. He smiled, “Did you think that there was nothing I could do unless you guys opened the restrictive spell? To be honest, if not for the fact that you guys told us about the Heavenly Kismet Fruit in there, I would have preferred not to lift a finger to retrieve what’s in there! However, since you’ve said it, I’ll get them even though I’m not that interested!”
Once he finished, Xu Que looked up at the dome of the Hall. The restrictive spell was open by two-thirds, with the remaining third still very much locked away. The prowess of the spell had wholly transformed into a water surface that glistened and rippled, brimming with murderous intent. You could feel your skull go numb even if you weren’t standing anywhere near. It was clear that the prowess of this restrictive spell far exceeded the limits of Xu Que’s capabilities. It also exceeded the limits of Human Celestial powerhouses like Bai Cailing. It was a spell comparable to an Earth Celestial grade spell. It was terrifying.
“Ha, ha, what did that young fellow say?”
“Did he just say that he wants to take items that are inside when the restrictive spell is not fully opened?”
“He’s got no self-awareness at all!”
“Take something out for us to see if you have the guts!”
“Ha, ha, ha!”
Under the tombstones, the Remnant Souls laughed away, their tone filled with mockery and disdain.
Bai Cailing could not stay put. She said, “Master Tang, don’t be rash. You should never barge into such a spell recklessly.”
“I’m not barging in recklessly!” Xu Que shook his head and answered thoughtfully, “I just want to try barging in.”
“…..” Bai Cailing twitched the corner of her mouth.
He just wanted to try barging in? That’s what she meant by ‘barging in recklessly’!
This was a spell restriction that could kill a Human Celestial in a split second. He, a mere Form Synthesis cultivator, would be torn into specks of dust within seconds!
“Little fellow, don’t be rash!” Jiang Hongyan’s voice rang out at the same time.
Xu Que smiled slightly, “It’s okay. I know what I’m doing!”
“Don’t!” Jiang Hongyan shook her head. “It’s different this time. There’s no need for you to take that risk! Be it the Body of Heavenly Kismet or the Body of Kismet, they mean nothing to me.” It’s not that she had no confidence in Xu Que. It was that she had a horrible feeling about that restrictive spell and found it too dangerous. No matter how strong or invincible Xu Que was, she didn’t want him to take that risk. A single Xu Que was more important than whatever Body of Holy Kismet.
“No, no, no, so long as it’s good for you, no risk is too dangerous to take!” Xu Que smiled and turned determinedly, gearing up to charge to the top.
“Don’t go!” Jiang Hongyan paled. A golden glow reignited in her palm as she tried to stop Xu Que.
Xu Feifei couldn’t take it any longer. She yelled anxiously, “Brother, are you crazy? Get a grip!”
Even Buttface was shouting, “Young lad, don’t be so reckless! If you really have to go, you must throw some good stuff to me before you die! I promise to keep them safe for you!”
Xu Que stepped onto a bolt of lightning and avoided Jiang Hongyan’s golden gleam. He landed on the ground and smiled, “All right, all right, I won’t tease you anymore. I’ll come down.”
Everyone heaved a sigh of relief at his words.
Jiang Hongyan’s expression relaxed slightly as she fixed her gaze on Xu Que.
Xu Que smiled reluctantly, but his eyes kept darting at the top dome. The reason why he stopped was not that he had truly given up. It was that there was a limited time he could pass through the restriction, and so he could not take all of the boxes out. Therefore, he needed to choose his target before making a move. Through the rippling and glistening water surface, he could clearly see tens of boxes inside the dome. One of them emitted an overwhelming Taoist Connotation, and he guessed that it must contain the 3-stripe Spiritual Tao Stone.
The rest of the boxes looked ordinary enough, and he could not make out what was in them. In the deepest part, though, there was a little round ball with a white body with a pink tint. It looked like an egg. However, the egg was too round. It was pristinely white and emitted a faint pink tinge. From its looks alone, it must be something extraordinary.
Xu Que wasn’t interested in that egg though. The thing he wanted to find was the Heavenly Kismet Fruit. It was difficult to determine which box the fruit was in with his naked eyes alone.
“Ha, ha. ha, I knew that you’d chicken out!”
“Young lad, take out our bone ashes like a good boy. Kowtow and apologize, or you’ll never obtain the Heavenly Kismet Fruit!”
The Remnant Souls under the tombstones erupted into laughter again.
“Hmph! Noisy!” Jiang Hongyan suddenly sneered, her expression icy cold. She waved her slender arm and with overwhelming killing intent shot a strand of gold straight for those tombstones. They had genuinely angered her.
The Remnant Souls provoked Xu Que to take the risk and had the gall to mock Xu Que now. How could she not be furious? With Xu Que’s temperament, who knows if he would indeed take the risk if he fell for their provocation?
With that, Jiang Hongyan made a move unhesitantly, planning to destroy those souls along with Xu Que’s urge to risk danger. She could not care less about the 3-stripe Spiritual Tao Stone or the Heavenly Kismet Fruit.
“Dang it, little missy, wait!” Xu Que called out immediately once he saw Jiang Hongyan’s actions.
With a stifled boom and a stifled thud, Xu Que threw out the Dark Heavenly Sword. It blocked those strands of gold, preventing Jiang Hongyan from killing those Remnant Souls.
“Little one, you…” Jiang Hongyan was stunned and turned to Xu Que.
Xu Que cut to the chase and took out a piece of Ultra Invincible Emblem. He laughed. “Wait for me. I’ll be right back!”
Xu Que jumped up immediately and rushed to the top. The Ultra Invincible Emblem makes you invincible for five seconds, a real man for five seconds. Who could do anything to me?
Tch! The Ultra Invincible Emblem was immediately ignited, and a golden barrier flowed out of his body.
“Don’t go!” Jiang Hongyan paled.
“Brother, come back!” Xu Feifei shouted too.
“Master Tang, you…” Bai Cailing was shocked.
Everyone present was caught off guard.
That fellow Xu Que barged in like that! He must be tired of living!
However, Xu Que was fearless with the Ultra Invincible Emblem’s protection. His only concern was that the Ultra Invincible Emblem would only be valid for five seconds. That wasn’t enough time to take all the boxes. He would suffer a significant loss if he couldn’t get his hands on the Heavenly Kismet Fruit. Therefore, he could only rely on his luck now. Take as much as you can, for fortune favors the bold!
With everyone’s expression of incredulity, Xu Que passed through the glistening surfaces.
“H…how’s that possible?”
The Remnant Souls under the tombstones were frozen in shock.
Even Bai Cailing was amazed.
How did Xu Que barge into the restriction barrier without a single scratch?
Xu Que broke into all the parts of the restrictive spell. He waved his hand.
Xu Que sucked the box into his hand containing the 3-stripe Spiritual Tao Stone and a few more surrounding it.
Xu Que waved his hand again.
Even the white egg at the deepest depth of the dome was sucked out.
At the fifth second, the effect of the Ultra Invincible Emblem wore off. The golden gleam on Xu Que’s body instantly dimmed as he fell through the air. He withdrew from the restrictive spell at his highest speed! However, it was a little too rushed. The moment Xu Que escaped the spell, the murderous mincing power of the borders crushed toward him from all directions. It engulfed him.
With a stiffened thud, Xu Que fell heavily onto the ground, with wounds covering his entire body as blood gushed out of the cuts.
Jiang Hongyan, Xu Feifei, Bai Cailing, Elder Yu, and the others all gathered by him immediately.
Arwoof! “Young lad, how did it go?” Buttface quickly came over with the toy poodle.
Xu Que lay on the ground and opened his eyes. He looked at the few boxes and that rounded egg in his hand and was reassured. “Thank goodness, the egg’s not crushed!”
Everyone was relieved that he could still talk and heaved sighs of relief.
Bai Cailing, on the other hand, stared at the white egg in Xu Que’s hands. Dumbfounded, she said, “This is…the Heavenly Kismet Fruit!”
