Chapter 1214: Hunt and Kill
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Just then, in a cave in the suburb of Star Heir City within the Li Nation of the Xuanhuang Continent, Lord Zeng sat on the ground with his legs crossed and a serious expression. He was in the process of healing his wounds.
After that battle, he had suffered enormous losses and sustained serious injuries. His Cultivation Stage had regressed to the Half-Celestial, and it took a long time for him to stabilize his Cultivation Stage. As for further breakthroughs, it would be neither possible nor effective.
Lin Yuxi sat in the corner. Her gaze was always on Xu Que, and she was worried. She didn’t know what had happened to Xu Que, but she wasn’t expecting much. She hoped to take Xu Que for medical treatment so that he could eventually recover from his illness. She hadn’t expected to encounter such a calamity as being targeted by Young Master Ming of Li Nation.
In the current situation, unless they could escape from Li Nation, all three of them were in danger.
At the same time, a Green Lotus was radiantly growing in Xu Que’s Dantian. The World of Green Lotus was a barren world—the air was turbid and the visibility was very low.
Xu Que’s body, unmoving, was kneeling down on one leg, the two fingers on his left hand pointed to his eyebrows, his right palm was on the ground—it was a strange posture.
According to the methods listed by the System, since he couldn’t go out and couldn’t consume a lot of medicinal items or Immortal Elixirs to accelerate the growth of the Green Lotus, he had to do the opposite. So he was actively integrating his Mind Sense into the World of Green Lotus. With his current strength, it was impossible to fully integrate into the World of Green Lotus, but it wasn’t difficult to integrate into just one area. If the integration into the small area was successful, then there were ways to open the area to release his Mind Sense.
However, that method could also bring damage to the World of Green Lotus. It was akin to digging a small hole in the World of Green Lotus and making an escape through the hole. But the hole couldn’t be repaired by itself. It would need a large amount of Celestial Core Power to mend it in the future.
However, this was the only way out. He could only repair it after the damage. Everything was negotiable as long as he could get out.
With a muffled sound, the ground covered by Xu Que’s palm began to crack. The cracks continued to spread and expand. Xu Que’s palm also gradually sank into the ground.
“Ha, it seems like a success! Young Master from the Ming Family, Li Nation, when your Act-Tough Saint is out, I’ll slap all of you to death!” Xu Que had a cold smile, his gaze was filled with a murderous aura that was bone-chilling!
However, he was also very curious about Lin Yuxi. Lin Yuxi was obviously left Earth. It was unexpected that she had managed to come here. In six or seven years, she had only cultivated to the Original Infant Stage.
“I wonder how she got here, but…after all, she failed to let go of what had happened in the past.” Xu Que shook his head and sighed.
He had long put aside those matters from the past. But Lin Yuxi was so persistent that she even rushed over from Earth. That touched Xu Que. However, it was impossible to return to their former state in the past!
“Forget it, I better get out of here first!” Xu Que’s gaze was fixed, and again he focused on his Mind Sense and let it surge toward the ground. Gradually, his arms sank into the ground, then his legs sank into it too. Soon, his whole body seemed to be in a swamp, which it was sinking in slowly…
Two days later, in the cave, Lord Zeng’s lips were slightly opened, he discharged an impure Qi, and his eyes slowly opened. He had finally managed to recover a little from his injuries. But his Cultivation Stage was completely fixed at the peak of the Half-Celestial Stage, and he was much weaker than before.
“Senior, how’s your injury?” Lin Yuxi asked immediately.
“It’s better now, but I’m afraid Young Master Ming won’t give up that easily. We should leave this place as soon as possible, preferably away from Li Nation!” Lord Zeng was extremely serious.
The innkeeper had dared to arrest them on the street and even mentioned Young Master Ming. They were afraid that the whole of Star Heir City knew that Young Master Ming had ordered their arrest, but his operation failed. Xu Que even killed the innkeeper with a single punch. It would surely create a big hoo-ha.
It was impossible for Young Master Ming to give in, either for revenge or to salvage his prestige, so they had to leave the city as soon as possible.
“All right, it’s your call!” Lin Yuxi nodded immediately.
She could see that Lord Zeng really knew Xu Que, and he was really sincere with his help; he was very trustworthy.
“Uh, but then again, how did you arrive here from The Four Great Continents when you’re only in the Original Infant Stage? Or…you’re from the World of Near Celestial?” Lord Zeng asked curiously.
He felt that Lin Yuxi and Xu Que seemed to have known each other for a long time. It was unlikely that Xu Que met her in the World of Near Celestial. But if she came from The Four Great Continents, how could she possibly have made her way here when she was only in the Original Infant Stage?
Lin Yuxi paused a moment and she spoke, “Senior, actually I came from a very faraway place, my Master…”
Before she could finish explaining, a loud explosion suddenly came from outside the cave. The rumbling vibration set the whole cave quaking, sand and rocks were collapsing.
“This is bad. Those from the Ming Family are here!” Lord Zeng’s expression changed drastically. He stood up all of a sudden and he said, “Girl, take good care of this dude, I’ll go and stop them for the time being, if you have the chance, you must escape with him first!”
After that, Lord Zeng turned and rushed toward the exit.
“Senior! Wait a minute. I remember there’s another exit here. It’s on the other side!” Lin Yuxi recalled and she hurriedly spoke.
“There’s another exit?” Lord Zeng was shocked.
“Yes, we have to walk through this passageway to the deepest part of the cave, and there’s a gap there. We can leave from there!” Lin Yuxi nodded.
Lord Zeng was overjoyed, “Good, my Restriction Spells can impede those people for a while; we can make it if we go now!”
“Senior, please follow me!” Lin Yuxi immediately helped Xu Que up, activated Magic Art under her feet, and quickly darted along the passageway.
Lord Zeng followed suit. As he was retreating, he laid down several Restriction Spells along the passageway.
In a short while, the three made it of the cave smoothly, but outside the gap was a cliff.
Lord Zeng didn’t hesitate. He immediately waved his hand, took Lin Yuxi and Xu Que along with him, rose into the sky, and bolted away into the distance.
As soon as the three had left, there was a loud noise from the back of the cave. The entire cave was completely destroyed, and more than ten figures emerged from it. They were aces from the Human Celestial Stage.
“Sh*t! These people have Magic Weapons!” Lord Zeng’s expression instantly changed.
He didn’t expect those from the Ming Family to catch up with them that quickly. The Restriction Spells he had previously laid down along the passageway didn’t manage to delay them because they were completely destroyed by their Magic Weapons!
“Lord Zeng, am I right? Who gave you the audacity to snatch our targets and murder on the street. You must be tired of living!” A mockery could be heard—it was Young Master Ming.
“Amitabha, Young Master Ming, do you really want to go against the Exploding Heavens Faction?” Lord Zeng replied, but he didn’t dare slow down at all. He continued to sprint forward.
Unfortunately, his cultivation had regressed to a mere Half-Celestial Stage, moreover he was carrying Xu Que and Lin Yuxi. How could his speed surpass those aces at the Human Celestial Stage. He watched as more than ten people behind him were catching up. The distance between them was getting shorter little by a little. Lord Zeng was anxious, but he had no other way out.
