Chapter 1215: Xu Qu Awakens!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Two days ago, the precious Buddha-Prison Sarira, though it was a counterfeit, was one of Lord Zeng’s few life-saving means. However, it was expendable. It was gone after a single use. As for his other remaining life-saving means, they were obviously not enough to deal with so many aces at the Human Celestial Stage.
Hence Lord Zeng had no alternative but to flee!
“Ha, ha, the Exploding Heavens Faction? Lord Zeng, do you think anyone will believe such an absurdity?” Behind Lord Zeng, Young Master Ming was laughing, full of disdain. He didn’t think Xu Que was a member of the Exploding Heavens Faction. After all, the Exploding Heavens Faction had always been active in the Earth Continent. He had never heard that there were any members of the Exploding Heavens Faction in the Xuanhuang Continent.
Besides, how could someone in the Exploding Heavens Faction be reduced to such a state?
“Humph, you will be very remorseful one day!” Lord Zeng snorted, and then he stopped talking; it was useless to explain further!
“Sen…senior, leave me behind. I’m their target. You can leave with Xu Que first!” Lin Yuxi looked pale as she spoke in a trembling voice. She knew that Xu Que was only an ordinary fool in the perception of Young Master Ming. It was impossible for Young Master Ming to send an innkeeper and his guards to catch Xu Que. The only possibility was that Lin Yuxi was his target.
“Stop saying that. In such a situation, it’s useless for anyone to be left behind!” Lord Zeng shook his head. Even if Lin Yuxi stayed, he knew that Young Master Ming wouldn’t let them go.
“Ha, ha, Lord Zeng is right. Today, yours and that fool’s life all belong to Ming Cheng, me! Everyone, listen to my order carefully, except for that woman, kill the others for me!” Young Master Ming laughed loudly as he gave his orders to more than ten guards in the Human Celestial Stage.
The next moment, more than ten Magic Arts bolted out from all directions. They were overwhelming, and all were targeting Lord Zeng!
Lord Zeng immediately took out his Buddhist prayer beads, which released a ray of golden radiance that blocked and protected his body. However, various forms of Magic Arts came crashing down. His Buddhist prayer beads were instantly disintegrated, and the golden radiance was smashed and dissipated.
Lord Zeng spit out a mouthful of fresh blood. The old injuries that he had just stabilized were instantly worsened.
Just then, there were two more Magic Arts bolting over. There were traces of wrath and an unwillingness to resign to fate on Lord Zeng’s face, but he was unable to save the desperate situation. He could only exert his Magic Arts forcefully and fight it head-on.
Accompanied by a muffled sound, the two Magic Arts blasted over. One of them hit Lord Zeng right in his chest and he spit blood all over. He immediately fell from the sky. Another Magic Art was targeting Xu Que.
Lin Yuxi’s expression changed, she forcibly activated her Magic Art to move in mid-air and protect Xu Que in her arms. She used her own body to protect Xu Que from the Magic Art!
“Uh?” In the distance, Young Master Ming was startled, and he frowned. Young Master Ming wanted Lin Yuxi to live. It was obvious that Lin Yuxi’s act of saving Xu Que at the cost of her own life made him very unhappy.
“Humph, if you want to die, I’ll fulfill your wish!” With a snort, Young Master Ming stopped his guards from rescuing Lin Yuxi.
However, at this moment, Xu Que’s dull pupils were suddenly radiating, his deep gaze was converging like a God who had descended.
A palm suddenly sprang out from Lin Yuxi’s hug. It was clenched into a fist, it distorted the Void, and it enveloped a massive amount of violent power. Finally, it released its power all of a sudden!
With a loud explosion, the Magic Art was instantly smashed into pieces.
“This…how is this possible?”
“That fellow’s punch destroyed the Magic Art?”
In an instant, Young Master Ming and all the guards gaped at the scene. It was unbelievable.
At the same time, Lin Yuxi seemed to have felt something, and she looked down into her arms. The man who was in her arms was now buried in front of her chest, with a pair of eyes full of complexity that were looking at her.
“Xu…Xu Que, you are back now?” Lin Yuxi’s face was full of surprise. She felt as if the Xu Que she knew had returned.
However, Xu Que didn’t answer her. Instead, he left her arms and retreated a few steps. Then, like a shooting star, he bolted toward Young Master Ming and the others!
Subsequently, there was a loud explosion. Xu Que burst out with a strong presence, followed by a magnificent Celestial Core Power that was pouring out from his body like torrential rain. This was because his Mind Sense had finally emerged from the World of Green Lotus and there was a hole in his World of Green Lotus, which was leaking immense Celestial Core Power.
“Humph!” Xu Que’s face sank, he slapped his hand at the position of his Dantian, instantly sealing off the flow of his Celestial Core Power from the Dantian. In this moment, he was in a very bad mood. A pair of pitch-black eyes was icy-cold, akin to a cold blinding light from a sword, as he looked at Young Master Ming and his group. He said in an indifferent way, “Who attacked me just now?”
The whole audience was appalled at once. Young Master Ming and his guards were stupefied and stopped dead in their tracks. The “fool” who had zero cultivation a moment ago had become someone in the Medium Stage of the Human Celestial Stage in the twinkling of an eye. The man’s presence was a tad too strong. It was suffocating, and they were feeling pins and needles on their scalps.
“Oh, no, this fellow…is he a member of the Exploding Heavens Faction?” One of the guards was jittery and a little uneasy.
Young Master Ming slapped the guard’s face fiercely and said angrily, “Scoundrel, what nonsense are you talking about? Think with your brain! How can the people from the Exploding Heavens Faction possibly appear in the Xuanhuang Continent? This is just a fool in the Medium Stage of the Human Celestial Stage. We have so many of us here, do we need to be afraid of him?”
“Young Master, please forgive me!” The guard quickly lowered his head.
“Kill! There’s no need to reserve your strength. Kill everyone, including that woman!” Young Master Ming shouted coldly.
The guards immediately answered without a moment of hesitation. All of them stepped on their Magic Arts, their bodies akin to a stream of light from their fast momentum, and they darted toward them with an imposing murderous aura.
Xu Que was expressionless, and he stared at those attackers indifferently. He shook his head and said, “Insignificant!” After that, with a wave of his hand, he took out his sharp sword, which belonged to the category of an Inferior Celestial Artifact.
“Sword Spirit, I’m injured. These people are yours to handle!”
Xu Que handed the matter over to Sword Spirit, and then he stopped paying attention. He sat cross-legged in the air, took out hundreds of Spirit Crystal Stones in his hands, drew in their Celestial Core Power, and absorbed them into his body crazily. In fact, his current state wasn’t optimistic, there was a hole in the World of Green Lotus, his Celestial Core Power was leaking, if he didn’t repair it as soon as possible, his own cultivation would also be greatly affected. Hence, he didn’t have time to pay attention to those aces in the Human Celestial Stage. In his eyes, those people were nobodies, and he wasn’t even bothered to attack them himself.
“Celestial Artifact? This guy has a Celestial Artifact?” At the same time, when they saw Xu Que’s sharp sword, they immediately cried out.
“Take him down!” Young Master Ming was shouting from the back, his eyes filled with greed.
Just then, a large black mist burst out from the sharp sword and instantly condensed into a dark shadow in the air. It grasped the sharp sword, took a look at Xu Que, and headed toward those guards.
“This…what is this?”
“Sword Spirit? Oh my god, it’s a Sword Spirit that is fully formed?” Many guards were startled, and they looked at Sword Spirit uncomprehendingly.
Young Master Ming frowned, and then he hollered, “Why aren’t you moving? First, take down the Sword Spirit and snatch the Celestial Artifact! We’re too close to the Seven Stars Academy. If we don’t hurry up, there’ll be trouble!”
The guards didn’t hesitate anymore, they activated their Magic Arts, one after another, and they bolted toward the Sword Spirit.
Although these guards were in the Human Celestial Stage, they were in the pseudo Human Celestial Stage that lacked the Life and Death Tao Aura. But when more than ten of them were launching attacks at the same time, it was still a force that shouldn’t be underestimated.
Sword Spirit had only one sharp sword at the level of an Inferior Celestial Artifact. It couldn’t exert much strength, and, without the help of Xu Que, it was difficult to gain the upper hand at once. After all, Sword Spirit was only a kind of supplementary power. Only when it was in Xu Que’s hands could it exert its formidable force. If it fought alone, its power would always be limited.
At the moment, it was one against many, and he could only achieve a situation whereby they were well-matched in strength.
At the same time, within the Seven Stars Academy, several Elders sat cross-legged around the Soul Gathering Array and were in the midst of cultivation. They seemed to have sensed something, and they suddenly opened their eyes.
“This is…the presence of a Celestial Artifact?”
“At the foot of the Seven Stars Academy’s mountain, there is a Celestial Artifact?”
“No, there’s not only a Celestial Artifact, but also a very powerful Terrifying Spiritual Qi, it’s either a demon or a monster!”
“Quick, let’s take a look at the foot of the mountain. Since this Celestial Artifact appeared at the foot of our Seven Stars Academy’s mountain, it should belong to the Seven Stars Academy!”
“Hold on a second. Yesterday, the Dean instructed that the Heavenly Moon Palace from the Earth Continent of the Zhen Yuan Celestial Realm is visiting today. All of us have to welcome them!”
“Not to worry. We can take a look at the foot of the mountain first. It won’t waste much time!”
“Sure, it’s a Celestial Artifact after all, we shouldn’t miss it!”
