“Are you coming over or not?” Xu Que stared at Buttface and Duan Jiude.
“Yes, yes, yes, we’re coming!” Buttface and Duan Jiude covered their crotches and ran back without a moment of hesitation!
Xu Que then pointed his broken sword at the four aces at the Half-Celestial Stage and declared, “If you don’t want to die, you can surrender!”
The aces at the Half-Celestial Stage heard him and their eyes opened wide! A dude who was merely at the fifth stage of the Crossing Calamity Stage was asking them to surrender?! That was absurd and out of the question! But…at the same time, it was impossible not to surrender. The fellow was using Celestial Artifacts with such an evil speed and he was blocking off the entrance to the Celestial Spell Array. They had no way to escape.
“Fellow cultivator, I ask only one question!” At that moment, the woman with the long whip suddenly looked at Xu Que and spoke.
Xu Que squinted, and he finally had a good look at the woman with the long whip. In terms of appearance, she had a beautiful face, but she couldn’t be compared with Jiang Hongyan or Liu Jingning. However, she was exuding a wise charm. Her eyes were fathomless; it was difficult to guess her mind!
“Yes, please ask!” Xu Que nodded.
The woman questioned, “You said you had met the people of the Ivy Academy. I want to ask how many of them were here in total and how many are dead?”
“Seven, all dead!” Xu Que smiled, as he was too lazy to brag and told the truth!
“Seven?” The woman frowned slightly and then nodded, “That was a reasonable number. I guess if they had nine or ten in total, you wouldn’t be able to kill them all!”
Following her speech was a sound ta-ta, and the woman threw away the whip in her hand as she raised her hands to surrender, “I don’t want to die, so I choose to surrender!”
“Uh?” Xu Que was stunned; he didn’t expect the woman to surrender so simply. She was decisive, and her surrender was completely without arrogance, unlike the typical aces. Obviously she was a smart woman who understood the situation very well!
“Senior Li, you…what are you doing?”
“How could you surrender to someone at the Crossing Calamity Stage?”
“We’re the apprentices of the Dongsheng Academy. Aren’t you a disgrace?”
“It would be a taint to the reputation of the Dongsheng Academy if this was leaked out, and our masters won’t forgive you when they find out!”
Right away, the three other aces at the Hal-Celestial Stage were shocked at her surrender and anger was in their eyes! Although they were fearful and wary of Xu Que and even knew that there was no way for them to retreat, they didn’t consider any form of surrender—they regarded the word surrender as a joke!
But now, the strongest one among them had chosen to surrender and they were humiliated by her decision!
“He who understands the situation is a wise man. Do you really think you can escape?” The woman responded coldly, but her eyes were fixed on Xu Que. She was afraid that Xu Que would take the opportunity to go back on his word and kill her! But this time Xu Que was acting like a gentleman. He didn’t engage in any dirty tricks, but looked at her with a smile! His plan was to catch a few living targets and get a thorough understanding of where these people were coming from and what was going on in the Celestial Burial Valley!
“Ha, ha, Your Holiness is here!”
“The girl is very clever. Those on the side, aren’t you all going to surrender? If you don’t surrender, your fate will be a bloody mess!”
By this time, Buttface and Duan Jiude were standing behind the three aces at the Half-Celestial Stage, and then they leaped out brandishing threats. The expressions on the faces of the three aces at the Half-Celestial Stage were unpleasant. Asking them to surrender was harder than death, they couldn’t afford to lose their dignity.
If Xu Que was in the Human Celestial Stage or in the Half-Celestial Stage like they were, or at the least a Mahayana, the Great Vehicle Stage, surrender would be acceptable for them. But Xu Que was merely at the Crossing Calamity Stage. It was causing them devastation if they were to surrender! Deep in their hearts, they heard a voice telling them: He was merely at the Crossing Calamity Stage, even with Celestial Artifacts, he was still in the Crossing Calamity Stage. They had a chance to win in a counterattack if they could join forces and perhaps do a deed of merit! As that thought was planted in their heads, it made it even more impossible for them to surrender.
Most of the Old Saints had a common trait—they had The Gambler’s Fallacy. They liked to gamble on their chances. If they fought hard enough, they might win, and if they win, it would be a piece of enlightenment. If they lose, they would probably die.
And the reason why gamblers are called gamblers is because, in most circumstances, the majority would choose to fight!
“Humph, the three of us should work together to break through in different directions. As long as we dash into the Celestial Spell Array and tell the news to our master and fellows, this guy will surely have a terrible death!” One of them finally spoke.
The other two nodded in unison. They had already found their best spots, readied their Magic Art and weapons, and they were ready to fight!
The woman with the long whip stood calmly aside, looked at them indifferently, shook her head, and commented, “Stupid!”
“They’re indeed stupid, but you’d better be smart. Don’t try to escape while I’m dealing with them, or you’ll regret it!” Xu Que looked at the woman and warned her with a smile.
The next moment, Xu Que stepped on his Firestorm Wheels accompanied by the Firestorm Thunderous Roar, and bolted across the sky and disappeared from their view in an instant!
“This is the time, go!” Almost at the same time, the three aces at the Half-Celestial Stage of Dongsheng Academy yelled and traveled in three different directions at the speed of light, rushing desperately toward the Celestial Spell Array at the entrance to the Celestial Burial Valley!
A Firestorm Thunderous Roar resonated beside them. The Soul Strength of three men was knocked fully open. As they briefly saw Xu Que’s position, they increased their speed to their limit and dashed away many miles in the blink of an eye!
“Three more seconds, just three more seconds, and we can be safe!” The Celestial Spell Array fairy was just right in front of them and they were delighted. The woman with the long whip at the back frowned slightly and held her hands tightly. It seemed that she was already considering whether she should flee!
Suddenly, there was a clear, crisp sound ahead!
Following which, three bodies of the aces at the Half-Celestial Stage had blood oozing out of them, one after another. Their bodies were cut in half by a broken sword.
The woman took a small step; she couldn’t resist the chance to flee! She knew that she had a good chance to escape, even if an old man and a dog were in her way. She felt that with her strength, the two at the back wouldn’t be able to stop her at all!
But after a little struggle, she suppressed the desire to escape in her heart! Because Xu Que had warned her before he started, and she was very wary of his words; intuition told her that if she ran away, the next one dead would be her!
In the meanwhile, Xu Que had already returned in his Firestorm Wheels. He appeared in front of her, his gaze filled with happiness, “You’re really smart, and you didn’t try to flee!”
“I was sure you wouldn’t break your promise!” The woman was composed but her eyes were still full of vigilance!
“Of course, the Exploding Heavens Faction always mean what they have promised, especially Xu Que. I’m often known as Honest Xu or Sincere Xu; I never break my promises!” Xu Que immediately laughed. Then he waved his hand and the woman heard a whoosh behind her. A dark shadow darted behind her and toward Xu Que, transformed into a vast lightning and was absorbed into his body!
“Shadow Replica?” The woman responded immediately and looked surprised. She knew that the dark shadow that had darted behind her was Xu Que’s replica. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have been possible to have such a fast speed or to merge into Xu Que’s body at the very end!
At that moment, in hindsight, she felt a chill and a shiver down her spine. If she had fled just now, she would be dead!
“Heh, heh, don’t mind me. I’m not suspicious of you. I’m just always careful, but I’m also open and honest. I never play dirty tricks, so you can rest assured!” Xu Que said with a faint smile as though he were a gentleman who was open and magnanimous! If people in general had seen his expression and heard his words, they would have spat on him directly and scolded him for having no sense of shame!
But Xu Que’s appearance was too deceptive. He looked gentle and elegant, refined and cultured, just like a scholarly man. And what he said from time to time did sound like a gentleman!
The woman instantly believed most of his nonsense and nodded slightly, “It seems that I didn’t trust the wrong person, and, if I’m not mistaken, you’re keeping one alive to extract information. What do you want to ask…?”
Her sentence hadn’t finished and a muffled sound rang out and the woman had a sudden blackout. A strong sense of dizziness hit her, her eyes shut, she fainted, and she dropped on the ground stiffly!
Ha, ha, ha, dude, your black club is so insanely useful. Lend it to Your Holiness to play with in the future!” Buttface was holding onto Xu Que’s black club and jumped out of the grass behind the woman, looking excited and proud. Xu Que had just made use of his replica to hand the black club over to Buttface. He was self-taught and replayed Lord Voldemort’s tricks and successfully plotted against that Half-Celestial woman at the Medium Stage!
Regarding the unconscious woman on the ground, Xu Que nodded with a smile and looked at Buttface and said, “Awesome, that was a good one. Well done! But I just smeared poison on the black club. If you don’t want to die, return the black club and find some treasures for antidotes!”
Buttface grimaced and said, “D*mn you!”
