“What are you two fools doing sneaking in there? If it hadn’t been for fear of hurting both of you, your Act-Tough Saint would have succeeded in getting in!” Just then, Xu Que dropped to the ground and dashed toward Duan Jiude and Buttface as he chided them.
A moment ago, he had planned to barge into the Celestial Spell Array with his King of Tough-Acting Fist and smash and crush the spell! Unexpectedly, the power of the Celestial Spell Array was far beyond his imagination, and it couldn’t be completely destroyed with his King of Tough-Acting Fist. Furthermore, it led to a stronger counterblow. The killing vibe within the spell was overbearing and smashed his whole body into a bloody mess. If Xu Que hadn’t opened the System’s automatic recovery ability in time, Zhang Suyue might have seen an escaping Xu Que without his limbs.
As for his complaints to Duan Jiude and Buttface, it was just Xu Que’s excuse for the failure to barge into the spell; the three of them were pushing blame onto each other.
After all, before Xu Que entered the Celestial Spell Array, the three of them didn’t even know the other ones were there.
“D*mn it, dude, stop making excuses. If you hadn’t mingled with Duan Jiude, Your Holiness would have succeeded!” Buttface scolded as he ran frantically. They were all trying to put the responsibility on the others.
Duan Jiude was also fuming with anger, “I’ve been in there for more than a year. Is it not obvious who was creating trouble here? What a mess!”
“Nonsense! Your Holiness dug these tunnels more than ten years ago. What do you know, you old fool!”
“Come on, why aren’t you even a little embarrassed? What’s the point of telling lies?”
“Impudent! Duan Jiude, how dare you be disrespectful of your Patriarchs? Your Holiness is your forebear!”
“Nonsense! I’ve already quit the Mighty Sect!”
“He who teaches you for one day is your father for life! Your Holiness is your father!”
When the man and the dog were at odds, if not for the pursuit of several aces from the Half-Celestial Stage behind them, the two of them might have gotten down on the ground and wrestled on the spot.
During this time, Xu Que’s wounds had been cured by the System’s automatic recovery ability. All the wounds were healing at the speed of light. While Buttface and Duan Jiude were scolding each other, he had fully recovered.
“All right, stop quarreling. Let me be fair. You two are too foolish to do it alone. You can’t even fight a few of those in the Half-Celestial Stage—that was embarrassing enough!” Xu Que adjusted his state and shook his head with disdain as he spoke.
As soon as he had ended his sentence, Buttface and Duan Jiude felt that they had lost their credibility and dignity. They went ballistic then and there!
“D*mn it! You assh*le!”
“Dude, where’s your conscience, do you still have a bit of it? Easier said than done! You’re not in our shoes, why don’t you try fighting with them!”
“Humph, the world is getting worse; some don’t even have any moral values and virtue. Dude, when you dashed out a moment ago, you were stepping onto those two wheels under your feet. Quick, let the old man borrow them. I’m already so old; can you bear to see me being hunted down?”
Buttface and Duan Jiude were running at full speed, but the distance separating them from the aces at the Half-Celestial Stage was narrowing! Their speed couldn’t be compared with Xu Que’s. Xu Que had covered the same distance in a minute.
“Hey, you two had better die fast, lest you spoil my plan! As for those in the Half-Celestial Stage, they aren’t on a par with me. Rest assured that when you die, I’ll surely kill them to avenge you both!” Xu Que bragged.
Fortunately, the group of Immortal Cultivators hadn’t received news of his killing several Half-Celestials in the South Continent, and they had only sent a few people to hunt him down. This gave him a chance to recover from his wounds!
At that moment, several aces of the Half-Celestial Stage heard Xu Que’s bragging and immediately cried out in cold voices. Their speed accelerated suddenly!
“D*mn, dude, are you crazy? Don’t provoke them!” Buttface and Duan Jiude were instantly distressed. If they were caught again, they would inevitably suffer or even be in great danger.
Xu Que squinted and stared at those aces of the Half-Celestial Stage with a faint smile. “You guys don’t seem to belong to the Ivy Academy. I heard that you would introduce yourselves before you engaged in a battle. Why aren’t you following the rules?”
“You’ve seen those from the Ivy Academy?” Several aces of the Half-Celestial Stage were startled. One of the women turned to him with a cold gaze and said with a sneer, “This is a little interesting now. You’re merely at the fifth stage of the Crossing Calamity Stage and you survived after encountering those from the Ivy Academy. It seems like the Ivy Academy wasn’t that efficient!”
“Ha, ha, how could those good-for-nothings from the Ivy Academy be compared with our Dongsheng Academy?”
“Perhaps their accumulated points were enough to pass, but they were too lazy to fight!”
“All right, stop the nonsense. First, let’s kill these leftovers from the Exploding Heavens Faction. I need three points to pass!”
“Ha, ha, I guess you’re the only one that hasn’t passed. All right, go ahead, these three points are for you!”
As their conversation ended, their bodies gushed out enormous amounts of Spiritual Qi, their speed suddenly increased, and they bolted toward Buttface and Duan Jiude with a sole intention to kill.
“D*mn it! We’re done for! We’re dead!”
“Dude, save us!”
Buttface and Duan Jiude screamed for help as they made a beeline toward escape.
Xu Que frowned slightly, and he seemed to have heard some incredible clues. The rationale of those Immortal Cultivators for killing the Exploding Heavens Faction was for accumulation of points?
Were these people targeting the Exploding Heavens Faction? And could they even give orders to those in the Half-Celestial Stage and Human Celestial Stage?
It’s impossible! The Act-Tough Saint hadn’t offended any of those in such a high Cultivation Stage!
Xu Que was puzzled. Originally, he thought that it was a simple invasion by outsiders. He had thought that this group of people had targeted the Exploding Heavens Faction entirely because they were incited by the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe and other Sects who were enemies with him! But now, he realized that it wasn’t as simple as he had thought—there was absolutely more to it!
“It seems like…I’ve got to catch one alive to interrogate him!”
A hint of brutality flashed in Xu Que’s eyes, and his gaze suddenly fell onto the disciples of Dongsheng Academy! Next moment, following a clang, Xu Que took out his broken sword, the Firestorm Wheels under his feet turned at high speed, and with the Firestorm Thunderous Roar, he transformed into a blurred shadow and bolted toward those aces of the Half-Celestial Stage!
“That…was a Celestial Artifact!”
The aces of the Half-Celestial Stage was alarmed and let out a cry. Xu Que’s broken sword and the pair of Firestorm Wheels under his feet emitted a strong aura, and it was hard not to attract their attention! Next moment, those aces of the Half-Celestial Stage expressed joy and greed on their faces. Without communicating, in an instant they changed their target and rushed toward Xu Que.
“Hand over the Celestial Artifact!” A woman hollered and took out a long whip, stepping on a stone plate. Her slender hand swung up and down, and the whip, accompanied by a thunderous roar and sending out a great aura seemingly like a punishment meted out by God, came fiercely crashing down.
“Uh? Junior, you’re using your Whip of the Heavenly Tribulation for a dude in the Crossing Calamity Stage. It seems that you’re trying to snatch his Celestial Artifact?” The man standing next to the woman sneered.
“Senior, you’re overthinking. When in front of any goodness, we depend on our capability to attain it!” The female replied casually and continued to wield the whip.
“Humph!” The man immediately snorted coldly, seemingly wary of his junior. He didn’t speak further, but his gaze swept back to the rest of the people as he spoke in an enigmatic manner, “You guys also want to compete with me over the Celestial Artifact?”
The three men behind heard him and quickly stifled their ambitions. They stopped moving and squeezed out with ugly smiles, “Senior, you’re overly concerned, we dare not!”
“That’s good!” The man said in a cold voice, and, in a flash, he caught up with the woman with the long whip. But soon he was stunned. There was no one in front of him. Even the woman next to him with a long whip was astounded.
Just a second before, Xu Que had bolted toward them on his Firestorm Wheels. But now, in a blink of an eye, Xu Que had vanished right in front of them!
“Oh, no! He’s behind us!” The Soul Strength of the whip suddenly pulsated and she cried out. The long whip in her hand veered direction rapidly backwards!
The man took out his swords immediately. The blades of the swords transformed into a large sword shadow that hung behind him and defended him.
“Ha, ha, I’m here!” Suddenly, Xu Que appeared in front of the man with a dirty smile.
The man’s expression changed instantly, his pupils contracted sharply, and retreated backwards abruptly. However, Xu Que’s broken sword had already come crashing down. While the man was trying to dash to the back, his body had been chopped in half, flying in different directions, and his blood started trickling down. He had been violently killed on the spot!
Suddenly, the whole scene fell into a dead silence. You could hear a pin drop!
Everyone was dumbfounded, even the woman with the long whip turned pale in a second! At that moment, she was finally aware of how horrifying Xu Que was. Her Soul Strength had clearly captured him behind her, but at the moment her whip flung out, he had actually killed the man on the other side. That kind of speed wasn’t something they could manage! And the most frightening thing was that the broken sword could kill them with one strike; that was at least a middle-grade Celestial Artifact.
“Run!” Immediately, the woman with the whip shouted as she turned and fled toward the Celestial Spell Array. Even if the broken sword was a middle-grade Celestial Artifact, it wasn’t something she could covet at all.
“Run? That’s interesting. Where would you run?”
Accompanied by Xu Que’s laughter, they noted that he had already blocked the entrance to the Celestial Spell Array, blocking their route of retreat. The woman with the long whip stopped in mid-air, holding the long whip in her hand, while she looked at Xu Que with great fear. The other three were stupefied, jittery, and skittish. Their minds had gone blank. They still hadn’t collected themselves from the scene in which their senior was violently slaughtered with a single strike.
Xu Que’s strength completely overturned their understanding of those in the Crossing Calamity Stage.
“D*mn! Dude, you’re awesome. Your Holiness wants to fight shoulder to shoulder with you!”
“Ha, ha, ha, good job! I’ll lend you a helping hand. Kill!”
Buttface and Duan Jiude were shocked for a second, but now they finally understood the situation and shouted. But those two were only supporting Xu Que using their mouths; they hadn’t slowed down their speed to escape! After all, there were more than a few aces of the Half-Celestial Stage in that Celestial Burial Valley. There were 70 or 80 Half-Celestials and more than a dozen Human Celestials!
“Assh*les! Come right back here this moment! Help me catch one alive or I’ll rush over to castrate both of you with one strike!” Xu Que hollered as he swung his sword across the sky!
Buttface and Duan Jiude gasped and put their hands over their crotches at the same time!
