Xu Que’s sonorous voice echoed in the area like the sound of a large bell.
The guards of Baihui City were intimidated immediately. None of them dared to come closer. Even the arrogant leading guard was terrified by Xu Que. He just stood there and didn’t know what to say or do. Xu Que’s words had totally surprised him. Xu Que’s strength had impressed everyone here. If he didn’t get the order from the City Governor, he wouldn’t dare to arrest Xu Que.
He didn’t expect Xu Que that wouldn’t show his due respect to the City Governor. He even announced he would slaughter Baihui City in front of so many people, which intimidated all the people here.
“This guy…is too horrible!”
“How dare he say he will slaughter Baihui City?”
“I don’t know why I have a feeling that he could really do that!”
“Where does this guy come from?”
All at once, many onlookers started to talk about Xu Que in a low voice.
“Enough!” Just at this time, a sonorous voice could be heard from the crowd. Then a man with red hair walked up. He was quite young and handsome. His chiseled face and red hair made him look charming.
“Young Master Ling!”
The guards greeted him immediately.
The onlookers were also surprised, “Ling Feng? Why is the son of the City Governor here?”
“I think I’ve figured out what has happened! I’m afraid this street fight is related to Ling Feng!”
“That’s why he is here! The Equipment Refining Convention will be held in Baihui City. Lord Ling, the City Governor, will have no time to care about small issues. I’m afraid these guards were sent by Ling Feng!”
Many cultivators who had stayed in Baihui City for many years knew Ling Feng’s style very well. So they figured out the reason behind this issue immediately. Actually, their speculation was right. Thanks to the relationship with Ling Feng, the Steal Sect had dared to kill Xu Que in broad daylight by ignoring the rules of the city. However, the result surprised all of them. Ten cultivators at the Human Celestial Stage were killed by Xu Que instantly. So Ling Feng decided to arrest Xu Que according to the rules of the city. But he didn’t expect Xu Que would utter those tough words arrogantly, which even intimidated the guards. He had no choice but to handle it himself.
“Ling Feng?” Xu Que was surprised when he heard the talk of the onlookers. When he saw the red-haired young man in front of him, he was amused immediately. He could remember clearly that the underwear ordered by this Young Master Ling Feng were kept in the Storage Ring of the Steal Sect. Even the sword he used now, which was an Inferior Celestial Artifact, was ordered by Ling Feng! Now, it turned out that this Ling Feng had tried to arrest him deliberately.
However, Xu Que didn’t expect the son of the City Governor would be on his extortion list!
“So, you are the Young Master Ling Feng! I’ve heard so much about you!” Xu Que said as he looked at Ling Feng with a thoughtful smile.
Of course, Ling Feng knew why Xu Que looked at him in this way. So he said seriously, “You’d better mind your words! I can forgive you about this. However, you should return me the sword and that box first!”
“Wow! Young Master Ling Feng, it seems you still have no idea about your current situation! Let me warn you! You’d better mind your words!” Xu Que said with an arrogant smile.
Ling Feng’s face darkened and he clenched his teeth but said nothing. His reaction puzzled all the onlookers. According to the arrogant style of this young master, how could he be so humble?
The point was this young master was not a good-for-nothing! He ranked 66th on the Human List of the Heavenly Tripod List. Nobody dared to underestimate his strength, which was the foundation of his arrogant style. How could he keep calm at this moment?
“What do you want?” After keeping silent for a while, Ling Feng asked seriously.
“I don’t want anything! Just stay out of my way and don’t bother me! Or I will definitely suit the action to the words I uttered just now!” Xu Que said, shaking his head with a cold smile.
Now he was powerful enough to challenge cultivators at the Earth Celestial Stage. Even he couldn’t defeat them, but he could escape safely after bombarding Baihui City with the Six-color Fiery Lotus.
“Don’t cross the line! You can’t go without handing in those things!” Ling Feng shook his head resolutely.
Although Xu Que was very powerful, he couldn’t let Xu Que go in this way. That box was related to his reputation. Once Xu Que disclosed it to the public, he would lose all standing and reputation and even his father would be implicated by him.
“Hah, hah, it’s easy! Just trade them for some Celestial Artifacts!” Xu Que said with a smile.
Those underpants were useless for him. So he decided to trade them for something useful!
“I don’t have any Celestial Artifact! Otherwise…I wouldn’t have ordered the sword in your hand!” Ling Feng said seriously, “But I will give you an opportunity to have a fair fight with me!”
You want to have a fair fight with me?”
Xu Que was quite happy to hear that. But he said, shaking his head, “First, you are not qualified to give me an opportunity. Second, why should I have a fair fight with you?”
“You don’t dare, right?”Ling Feng replied directly.
Xu Que was annoyed. “D*mn! How dare you defy me? I know you are trying to goad me! And I will take your bait!”
“OK, I will give you an opportunity to have a fair fight with me! How should we fight?”
Xu Que shouted immediately, “Let’s solve it on the Life and Death Ring!”
Ling Feng said as he pointed at the downtown of the city, “The Life and Death Ring has three rules! First, people on that platform will fight to the death, and nobody is allowed to intervene! Second, use of Celestial Artifacts is not allowed! Third, people on that platform could only use the magic arts chosen by the Life and Death Pavilion!”
“This is your so-called fair fight, right?” Xu Que raised his eyebrows and said with a cold smile. Apparently, Ling Feng was trying to stop him from using his Celestial Artifacts.
“Don’t worry! I will have my cultivation stage changed and only fight you at the Medium Stage of the Half-Celestial Stage!” Ling Feng said calmly.
His words confused Xu Que. Is this red-haired guy really going to have a fair fight with me? However, the rules of theLife and Death Ring are quite weird! The third rule is so weird that only the magic arts chosen by the Life and Death Pavilion can be used during the fight!
“My younger brother, my proposal is don’t agree with that! Otherwise, you will absolutely be killed!” A familiar voice came into Xu Que’s ears at this time. Xu Que, who was surprised, turned around and saw Qin Susu was standing in the crowds with a smile.
“Why now? Do you think I can’t defeat him?”
Xu Que asked, sending her a message.
“Nonsense! I know you could only kill cultivators at the Human Celestial Stage when you use those two Celestial Artifacts! Without them and your magic arts, it will be extremely difficult for you to defeat him no matter how gifted you are! Because Ling Feng’s advantage is his physique, which has been toughened, and is more powerful than most cultivators!” Qin Susu explained by sending a message.
She didn’t underestimate Xu Que’s strength, because he could control two Celestial Artifacts at the same time. However, the rules of the Life and Death Ring were special. Those who had a powerful physique would have a great advantage. So, she reminded Xu Que because she thought his odds were very low!
His physique was toughened before? Hearing that, Xu Que’s eyes lit up.
His physique was more powerful than most people’s. Before rising immortally to the World of Near Celestial, his God of Hell’s Compulsion was further enhanced. After being tortured by the winds in the Void several times, his physique got very tough. Now he could withstand the attack of cultivators at full power! At the thought of this, he ignored Qin Susu.
Then he turned to Ling Feng and asked with a smile, “What is the bet?”
“If I win, you return the Celestial Artifact and the box to me! If I lose, I will make an apology to you personally!” Ling Feng replied.
Xu Que said disdainfully, “An apology for my Celestial Artifact? Stop your daydreaming!”
“Then, what do you want?” Ling Feng asked.
“It’s simple! If you lose, you should make an apology to me and allow me to go to the mansion of the City Governor freely. Don’t worry, I just want to have a look to satisfy my curiosity. I won’t take a needle or a piece of thread from it!” Xu Que promised, patting his chest.
Ling Feng looked at Xu Que suspiciously. He thought Xu Que would never win in the fight. So he said, nodding his head, “OK!”
“Great! Then, it is a deal!” Xu Que smiled with satisfaction.
Then they jumped into the sky and dashed toward the Life and Death Ring in the downtown area of the city. Seeing that, the onlookers decided to enjoy the show by following them.
The Life and Death Ring had been set up for many years. Almost nobody dared to use it for its weird rules went against most people.
More important, many people knew Ling Feng spent a lot of time toughening his physique. Even though his Cultivation Stage was lowered to the Medium Stage of the Hal-Celestial Stage, his physique wouldn’t be weakened a bit. However, they were also impressed by Xu Que’s strength. So the onlookers were quite curious about the result of the fight and wanted to enjoy the show.
Qin Susu and the old man in the white robe couldn’t help but shake their heads when they saw Xu Que and Ling Feng.
“This young man is too reckless!”
“Humph! I reminded him out of good intentions. But he ignored my suggestion. After signing the contract of using the Life and Death Ring, even if he could survive this time, he will be teleported to this platform when Ling Feng wants to have a fight with him again if he chooses to stay in Baihui City in the future!”
“Forget it, Susu. Let’s also go there and have a look. This guy is quite gifted and handsome! It is really a pity for him to die here. I think I can save him this time, so that he could owe us, which could be helpful for us in the future!”
“Grandpa, I really don’t think your excuses could hold water! If you dare to introduce him to my parents, I swear I will pick out all your beard and hair!”
“Nonsense! I am not that kind of person!”
