Chapter 1200: Something Bad Happened?

Just then, Xu Que appeared near at a place several hours away from the Waste Realm’s entrance. It was a place he had already taken a fancy to before embarking on his adventures in the Waste Realm! Before coming into contact with Zhan Gaoli, Xu Que had tried to open a gap from other places to enter the Waste Realm. He had sensed that the Prohibition Spell in this area was much weaker than in other areas. If his Act-Tough King’s Leg and the System’s function worked together, the Prohibition Spell could be broken in six hours to create a temporary crack.
But when he was here previously, he hadn’t had the chance to try it out. After all, the Waste Realm was guarded by many strong aces. Six hours were too long a time to spend trying to break in, and it was easy to be discovered. Hence, Xu Que gave up on the idea of creating a crack to enter the Waste Realm.
However, it was a different situation now. He was in the Waste Realm. If he opened a gap from the inside, people outside couldn’t stop him!
“Heh, heh, don’t think I’m not aware that you guys are going to try to block me at the exit. This time I’ll go out from the side instead. Let’s see if that’ll stun all of you!” Xu Que laughed sneakily as he immediately called out the System and began to break through the Prohibition Spell on the edge of the Waste Realm.
Although he could also go out the exit and use the Divine Escape Emblem to escape, it was still too risky.
On one hand, he felt that the group of people who had been tricked by him so many times must have learned from their mistakes. They must have sealed the Void near the exit to prevent him from escaping.
On the other hand, Xu Que also feared that the ace in the Golden Celestial Stage would join them in trying to arrest him. The power of that level was extraordinary. Xu Que wouldn’t even win in a fight with a Heaven Celestial, let alone one in the Golden Celestial Stage. Moreover, he had never been in direct contact with an ace in the Golden Celestial Stage. He dared not provoke such great power!
If he wasn’t careful, a wrong move might cause eternal sorrow!
Hence, he could only choose to leave from the side. It was the safest and most secure way. Moreover, after going out, he could show off that the Exploding Heavens Faction had a special entrance and exit; that’s how prestigious they were!
When he was thinking about all that, Xu Que couldn’t help but smile, as if seeing countless Acting Tough Points whirling into his account.
He lifted his legs, a glorious brilliance was gathered on his toes, and immediately he kicked toward the Prohibition Spell in front of him!
A series of destructive kicks from the Act-Tough King’s Leg always worked on destroying spells. It rapidly plunged into the Prohibition Spell. He was in the Medium Stage of the Human Celestial Stage, and coupled with the purified Celestial Core Power and the System’s function of breaking spells, Xu Que believed that it would take no more than six hours, perhaps only two hours to get out.
At the same time, in a tent on the edge of the Waste Realm, Dean Lin of the Dingtian Academy had received the approval of many influential figures, and he had decided to start the implementation of the plan. They sent a lot of people into the Waste Realm to inform their disciples that the Waste Realm would be sealed and they must urgently evacuate.
So that day, countless people retreated from the Waste Realm, but everyone was checked for an extended period of time at the exit. From their identities, to how they had received their spots to enter the Waste Realm, they were inspected thoroughly, and then faced with an inspection of their Soul Strength from more than a dozen aces in the Heaven Celestial Stage.
However, after several rounds of checks, they didn’t find any suspicious people. Everyone had an identity and a clear origin. Even if they were disbanded cultivators, they could find and check their experience of obtaining their spots to enter the Waste Realm.
“Continue the inspection and increase the manpower, inform the rest of the disciples to come out as soon as possible. Two days from now, the exit will be sealed!” Dean Lin issued an order.
Except for a few influential forces who already knew the inside story, the rest of the big forces were shocked when they received the news. Especially the Litian Academy and some of the other forces that didn’t oppose the Exploding Heavens Faction, they had just found out what was going on and they were raging.
“You shouldn’t do this. If other disciples don’t come out in time, will they also be sealed in it?” Qin Xiangtian immediately objected. On one hand, he spoke on behalf of other disciples from the Litian Academy. On the other hand, Qin Susu was still in there. He would never allow his precious granddaughter to be sealed in the Waste Realm!
“Humph, Qin Xiangtian, this time we’re trying to eradicate the depraved people from the Exploding Heaven Faction. It’s perfectly fine to sacrifice some disciples. Why are you objecting? Moreover, more than half of the forces have agreed to this plan. If you have any unneeded advice, then you’ll be considered to be colluding with the Exploding Heavens Faction!” Dean Lin responded forcefully.
Dean Lin was anxious to see Qin Xiangtian to go against his plan, so that he could frame him as colluding with the Exploding Heavens Faction. Dean Lin could then unite with the other forces to eradicate the Litian Academy.
It didn’t matter how later generations judged it. After all, history books were written by the conquerors.
“You…” Qin Xiangtian trembled with rage and even wanted to wage a war with Dean Lin.
“Elder brother, don’t be impulsive, let’s consider carefully before making a decision!” Qin Sanli quickly pulled him back and stopped Qin Xiangtian from launching his attacks. He had a hunch that if Qin Xiangtian had acted against Dean Lin then, he was afraid that the other major forces, who were aces in the Heaven Celestial Stage, would have used that as a reason to encircle and kill Qin Xiangtian. This was a big conspiracy, using the excuse of killing the Exploding Heaven Faction to kill many birds with one stone.
Those who were involved in the decision-making process of the plan were forces supporting the Equipment Refining Sect and the Dingtian Academy. Other forces who opposed them would surely be eradicated when they had the chance.
“No, you can’t seal the Waste Realm, Dean Lin. Pease, my brother is still inside. They’ve received a classified order. There are exotic treasures in the depths of the Waste Realm. If the Waste Realm is sealed in two days, they can’t rush back in time!” Just then, a woman ran in anxiously. Looking at what she was wearing, she was clearly a disciple from the Dingtian Academy.
Her cry made everyone in the room look at Dean Lin.
Dean Lin’s face sank. “There’s no one who’s afraid of risking their lives in the Dingtian Academy. So what if there are sacrifices to make in order to eradicate the Exploding Heavens Faction and restore peace in the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm? Get out of here now!”
The woman suddenly turned pale and left in tears.
Everyone was shocked.
“It looks like the Dingtian Academy is determined to kill those from the Exploding Heavens Faction!”
“Top ten on the Human List, are they all going to die inside?”
“But this kind of method is a little too cruel. It’s affecting the innocent!”
“Forget it. Take a look at the Dingtian Academy. They’re not even saving their own disciples. You can see for yourself. For Dean Lin to make such a decision, he had to pay a price for it too!”
“Dean Lin is great!”
Many people were discussing the plan to annihilate the Exploding Heavens Faction. They weren’t against Dean Lin’s plan.
But those with discerning eyes knew what was going on. Qin Sanli looked at the scene and said in a cold voice, “This old man is so shameless that he even arranged for such an act.”
“Humph, if anything bad happens to Susu, I will never let the Dingtian Academy off!” Qin Xiangtian was unable to hold back his anger.
“Elder brother, don’t be impulsive. They came prepared. I’m afraid we’ll have to go back and get help!”
“Now there are only two days left. Where can we find help?”
“Perhaps…we can try seeking help from the Exploding Heavens Faction!”
“The Exploding Heavens Faction?” Qin Xiangtian paused and he pondered.
Just then, as a wanted person, Xu Que had already fled far away. He didn’t know that the Dingtian Academy wanted to kill him and had even joined forces with the others to seal the exit of the Waste Realm. It took less than two hours for Xu Que to come out of the Waste Realm, and then he sensed that the edge of the Waste Realm was full of aces in the Heaven Celestial Stage. There was even an active presence of an ace in the Golden Celestial Stage. He didn’t care much about Acting Tough and directly hid in the market.
During those two days, Xu Que hid himself in a Resting Inn and was studying the Six Rens Earth Plate!
The most amazing thing was that he found that some of his previous knowledge about the Secrets of Yin Yang could be used to control the Six Rens Earth Plate. According to different geomantic omens, he could also instantly arrange different Obliterating Spells with extraordinary power.
“Awesome, this is interesting. Heh, heh, shall I go back to the edge of the Waste Realm to try the power of this thing. I can teach the people of the Dingtian Academy and the Equipment Refining Sect a lesson too?” Xu Que touched the Six Rens Earth Plate and smiled sneakily.
He wanted to try out what kind of extreme power this Low-Grade Celestial Artifact could exert!
“If the Terrain Obliterating Spell is set up by the Six Rens Earth Plate beforehand, together with the Trap & Kill Array exchanged from the System store, the power should be formidable. Even an ace in the Heaven Celestial Stage would suffer! But…it’s going to be a big project!” Xu Que pondered over it for a while and began to think about the possibilities.
If he really wanted to try, it would be the most shocking event of the year in the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm. The number of casualties would surely exceed those from the Equipment Refining Sect’s branch. At that time, the Exploding Heavens Faction would become even more famous and completely strengthen its position and status!
However, that wasn’t his ultimate goal after all. What he wanted was to constantly refresh the Heavenly Tripod List so that Jiang Hongyan and the others could see the clues he left behind and find him!
“Forget it. I’ll kill lesser people and do less evil. After all, the Act-Tough Saint is also a good man who abides by the law and behaves himself!”
Eventually, Xu Que shook his head and banished the idea. He never worked hard to achieve anything without a goal. So he got up and left the room, ready to go downstairs to get something to eat and pass the time. However, just as he was going downstairs, taking his seat and ordering a few dishes, the topic that people around him were talking about immediately caught his attention.
Xu Que listened intently for a while, and then he frowned, “Only two days after I left and something bad has happened in the Waste Realm?”
