Xu Que took a compass out of his System parcel. His expression froze as he engaged in The Walk of Yu. He quickly dashed toward the palace.
“To seek the Dragon through obstacles, each obstacle is a gate!”
“If there are complicated dangers before the gate, solve it with the Eight Trigrams!”
He was muttering to himself as he moved forward, and he kept observing the cave areas in all directions, as well as some decorative arrangements. Finally, he had come to the conclusion that the palace was indeed in the center of the location with good feng shui. No wonder the Qi was so abundant!
“Good, seems like I’m not wasting my efforts. It’s a good feng shui place which everyone is seeking!”
“Oh, there’s a Yin and Yang River ahead. See how your Act-Tough Saint dominates it!” Xu Que darted to a moat outside the palace. He pulled a bucket of water from the river, following which he darted over and drew water from a well next to him!
Next moment, he rushed to the suspension bridge which was outside the entrance of the palace. He poured water from the well into the left side of the suspension bridge, and river water into the right side!
“The left is water from the well and the right is water from the river. This formation means ‘the well water doesn’t interfere with the river water; each one minds its own business. Open the way for me!”
Xu Que accomplished all this skillfully, stepped on the suspension bridge quickly, and overcame the trap safely.
“Humph, madwoman, is that all you could do? Your Act-Tough Saint is breaking through!” Xu Que crossed the suspension bridge and bolted to the entrance of the palace. He laughed loudly. At that moment, Xu Que was confident enough to cope with any traps in the tombs because of all the feng shui knowledge he had. He strode forward with the speed of light.
“Madwoman! Hand over the Heavenly Book of Taiyi quickly! Your Act-Tough Saint is already outside. Don’t think I’m just loitering around! I’m definitely going in!”
“Hurry up, hand over the Heavenly Book of Taiyi, and then safely send your Act-Tough Saint back!”
“Huh, how dare you not answer? Believe it or not, I’m blowing up your palace now!”
“Oh, not replying yet? Looks like you’re forcing me to destroy your coffin!”
“Ah, ha, ha, I’m coming in!”
“I’m making my move! Uh…”
“Uh, wait a minute. What’s the situation? Why am I not moving? Am I stuck? Network Management…”
Xu Que had just stepped into the palace, and suddenly his whole body was held back in front of the gate of the palace. He couldn’t move an inch!
Ding! “It was detected that the Host was trapped in a Hidden Imprisonment Array; after calculating the current strength of the Host, you’re unable to break it. The System advises the Host to beg for mercy from the opponent and ask her to let you go! Or use 500,000 Acting Tough Points from the System to break the Hidden Imprisonment Array!”
The System’s reminder rang out!
Xu Que stared and he almost rained down curses.
Hidden Imprisonment Array?
D*mn it, he needed 500,000 Acting Tough Points to break the spell?
Xu Que opened the System interface and looked at his personal information column. Originally, he only had about 100,000 Acting Tough Points, but when he started his killing spree of the aces at the Half-Celestial Stage when he embarked on the trip to the Celestial Burial Valley he had earned more than 400,000 Acting Tough Points!
So when he added everything up, he had more than 500,000 Acting Tough Points. And now, in order to break this Hidden Imprisonment Array, he had to spend 500,000 Acting Tough Points?
Xu Que shook his head. He couldn’t be so wasteful. After all, it was hard to act tough in this place. If his Acting Tough Points were all used up, it’s doubtful whether he could get out of this place in the future! Although he still had another 500,000 Acting Tough Points from a loan quota in the System, Xu Que still felt that it was too reckless to spend so much in one gol.
Stepping into a Hidden Imprisonment Array for no reason and spending 500,000 Acting Tough Points to get out of it for no reason? Whoever wanted to be the idiot could take his place!
“Acting Tough Points are out of the question. Give me another solution quickly!” Xu Que said to the System.
The System responded in an instant, “I suggest that the Host can beg for mercy from the opponent, with the ability of the Host, I believe you can…”
Xu Que immediately and righteously interrupted the System’s voice, and his face was full of honor. “The men from the Exploding Heaven Faction are always firm and unyielding. We never lower our heads to beg for forgiveness? That’s interesting, beg for mercy? It’s impossible for me to beg for mercy in this lifetime. Since I can’t spend my Acting Tough Points, I’ll just stay stuck here today. Come on, exchange a high-definition computer for me, I’m going to watch films. I don’t believe she can persist longer than me!”
Suddenly, there was a loud crash above the palace.
Many fissures were coming together in the ceiling as it burst open, and there were red worms crawling out from the cracks.They were as thin as silk, the quantity of them was incomparable. The red worms were all entangled as they dashed crazily toward Xu Que!
That made Xu Que’s hair stand on end and he had goosebumps all over his body. If that scene was seen by people with trypophobia, they would die on the spot!
“You assh*le, you’re playing such vicious tricks? Aren’t you disgusting?” Xu Que started to curse and shout angrily. He was tense and wanted to escape from the Hidden Imprisonment Array. But the spell was too powerful after all. Even if he tried his best to exert the maximum of his Soul Strength and Tao Aura, he still couldn’t move!
“Humph!” Just then, Xu Que sneered, and his fierce gaze swept forward to the ice coffin. He shouted, “Miss!”
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The red worms were like a sea of blood, crazily getting closer!
Xu Que stared with eyes wide opened and continued to shout, “Sister!”
“I’m a sinful person!”
“I don’t deserve to be a human!”
“Please save me!”
Instantly, a glorious glow shot out from the ice coffin! Following which, a grandiose wave of Soul Strength swept out of it, swiftly mobilized the spiritual Qi all around, turning all into a sea of turbulence, overwhelmingly dashing toward Xu Que!
Accompanied by a muffled sound, the huge waves enveloped the innumerable red worms and swept them out of the palace. It was only a few seconds before the palace was quiet again and all the red worms had disappeared. There was only the ice coffin and Xu Que who was still stuck in his spot.
“What? Didn’t you just say it’s impossible for you to beg for mercy? Why did you soften in front of your teacher?” Just then, a cold female voice was heard coming from the ice coffin.
Xu Que immediately straightened up and said calmly, “Teacher, you have wronged me. I didn’t want to bother you with everything. Unfortunately, I’m too weak and had to let you help!”
“Humph! You’re a glib talker!” The woman from the ice coffin sneered. Obviously, she knew Xu Que’s shameless character and no longer believed him!
Xu Que raised his eyebrows and then said, “Teacher, when you help others, you have to help him to do the whole thing well. How about you help me break open the Hidden Imprisonment Array? I have an urgent matter to attend to!”
“Urgent matter? What? Are you going to destroy your teacher’s Nine Heavens Ice Divine Coffin after I break open your Hidden Imprisonment Array?” The woman’s sneer resonated throughout the palace.
Obviously, she had heard all of Xu Que’s provocations just now.
“No! Teacher, how could I be that kind of person? And with my strength, it’s impossible to move your Nine Heavens Ice…uh, something coffin! I’m really in a hurry. Please help me break open the Hidden Imprisonment Array!” Xu Que sounded anxious.
“Urgent matter? Ha, ha, you’re overthinking. Since you’re already here, you should cultivate peace of mind. Before I attain Nirvana, you’ll not be able to leave. Any urgent matter has nothing to do with you!” The woman responded in a cold voice.
Xu Que rolled his eyes and shouted, “Teacher, what I said isn’t an emergency outside. I need to run to the washroom now. I need to pee. If you don’t help me break open the Hidden Imprisonment Array, I’ll have to pee on the ground!”
“How dare you! Don’t you dare taint your teacher’s Hall of the Sacred Heart.” The woman reprimanded him.
Xu Que’s eyes sparkled as he heard her reply. He laughed and said, “Teacher, this isn’t something I can control. To tell you the truth, my kidneys aren’t very good. I really can’t control my bladder. Ouch, bad news. Teacher, take a look, my bladder is starting to leak!”
At the same time, the ice coffin poured out a grandiose wave of Soul Strength; it smashed on Xu Que’s chest, flung him off his spot, and out of the palace. He landed on his butt and smashed into the entrance of the palace!
After Xu Que landed on the ground, he immediately threw out a mouthful of blood; his body was greatly injured. But at that moment, he smiled! The restriction of the Hidden Imprisonment Array had disappeared! Now it was your Act-Tough Saint’s turn!
Immediately, Xu Que waved his hand and reached for his broken sword. His Soul Strength went directly into it and shouted, “Come out, Sword Spirit!”
Instantly, the broken sword shook sharply and grand black smoke bolted out of it. It quickly condensed and formed into a man with long hair as dark as ink with blurry facial features.
Almost at the same time, Xu Que raised his arm and pointed directly at the ice coffin in the palace. He hollered, “Sword Spirit, hack her to death!”
“Uh? This is…” Sword Spirit was startled when he stared at the ice coffin.
Next moment, without saying a word, it suddenly turned into black smoke and rushed back into the broken sword!
In the twinkling of an eye, the air around Xu Que seemed to have condensed. In the whole hall, inside and outside, it was dead silent!
Xu Que was utterly confused as he looked at the broken sword and turned to look at the ice coffin. His face suddenly burst out with an embarrassing but polite smile. “Uh, teacher…ha, ha, ha, you…listen to me explain!”
