“Huh?” At that moment, Young Master Ming knit his brows and looked gloomy. He didn’t expect that Lin Yuxi, who was merely in the Original Infant Stage, would burst into such a high speed and unswervingly blocked his attack.
But what’s the outcome? She merely died earlier than she would have. No matter what, she’s just a powerless cultivator in the Original Infant Stage.
Someone in the Human Celestial Stage, even someone in the Half-Celestial Stage, wasn’t capable of enduring his attack.
There was a flash of cold and disdainful mockery on his face as he looked at Xu Que with a sneer, “With your miserable strength, you dare call yourself a member of the Exploding Heavens Faction? In the end, you needed a woman to block an attack. For shame.”
Almost at the same moment that Ming was thinking these thoughts, Xu Que’s tightly shut eyes finally opened. His unfathomable eyes were burning with animosity. There was a terrible murderous aura that had erupted from him and it had swept all over the area.
“You’re courting death!” Xu Que shouted fiercely, clenching his fists and bolting in front of Young Master Ming like lightning.
With a loud explosion, Young Master Ming didn’t have the time to respond at all. His right arm that was holding onto the Long Halberd together with half of his chest was completely blown up, and it was smashed and crushed into a mass of blood mist. He was blown from his spot, and his face was filled with horror and shock.
The Long Halberd fell from the sky, together with Lin Yuxi. Suddenly, Lin Yuxi was firmly embraced.
“Lin Yuxi, don’t sleep, wake up!” Xu Que looked at Lin Yuxi in his arms and shouted.
He didn’t expect such an outcome. He had just completed the refinement of tens of thousands of medicinal items to make up for the hole in the World of Green Lotus.
He also knew that Young Master Ming was going to try to kill him, but he was completely fearless. He had worked out the time. With the current toughness of his physical body and the protection of Spiritual Qi from the Chaotic Green Lotus, it was enough for him to take the blow from Young Master Ming. He could then mend the hole in the World of Green Lotus to the size of a tiny rice grain.
Before he could find a treasure to supplement a large amount of Celestial Core Power, he mustn’t completely repair the hole in the World of Green Lotus. Otherwise, he would fall into the awkward situation of having no Celestial Core Power to use. Only by keeping the hole to the size of a rice grain, could he ensure that his Celestial Core Power wouldn’t leak too much, but, at the same time, there was Celestial Core Power he could use from his Dantian. All of that was a calculated move. But he didn’t expect that Lin Yuxi would rush out and block the attack for him.
In that moment, when he saw Lin Yuxi’s pale face and when he heard her shaky voice saying “sorry”, he could feel a myriad of swords cutting up his heart.
“System, give me the best medicinal item at once to save her!” Xu Que immediately called out the System from his heart.
Ding! “It is detected that the target person is in metamorphosis. There’s no life-threatening issue, she shouldn’t be taking a medicinal item.” The System responded.
Xu Que was startled.
Metamorphosis? Not life-threatening?
“You…what do you mean?” Xu Que was a little confused. He could almost feel the last trace of vitality in Lin Yuxi’s body slowly vanishing, but the System gave him such a reply.
Ding! “The target’s body has an Inheritance of an Ancient Skill sealed within it, and now the seal has been broken, therefore she’s in metamorphosis. She shouldn’t be affected by any medicinal item!” The System explained.
Xu Que heard the explanation, and he was a little relieved, but then his expression became odd.
What exactly had Lin Yuxi gone through in the past few years? She had an Inheritance of an Ancient Skill sealed inside her body. It was a blessing in disguise; her seal was broken for taking a blow for him. Her luck and enlightenment were really awesome!
Just then, Lin Yuxi’s body gradually regained a trace of vitality, and she slowly opened her eyes and weakly called out to him.
“Uh, you’re awake already?” Xu Que was startled, and then he revealed a gentle smile, “Forget it, have a good rest, until I’ve finished off these nobodies. I’ll then have a good chat with you!”
As he spoke, he reached out and brushed the messy hair off Lin Yuxi’s cheek. Then he used his Celestial Core Power to wrap her up in layers of protection. He then laid her flat on the ground. As of that moment, Lin Yuxi was in a daze. That was a familiar action, and it reminded of her a scene in the past, when they were in front of the lake on campus.
In the past, the evening wind had messed up her hair, and Xu Que had tidied her hair just like how he had earlier. In that moment, Lin Yuxi seemed to have seen the Xu Que she had known in the past, and tears were in her eyes. Suddenly, she felt that everything had been worth it!
Just then, Xu Que looked up slowly, and his cold gaze swept toward Young Master Ming, not far away, who was preparing to flee.
“Flee? Do you think you can escape?” Xu Que sneered and he stepped on lightning. His figure swept across the sky in an instant. In the blink of an eye, he darted through the clouds in pursuit of Young Master Ming.
“No, wait a minute. You can’t kill me. I’m the eldest son of the Ming Family, Ming Cheng!” Ming Cheng was totally scared stiff. He had had no idea that Xu Que’s strength was so dreadful. Xu Que’s cultivation was obviously only in the Medium Stage of the Human Celestial Stage, but when he was in front of Xu Que, he felt like a small potato that could be crushed and killed by a finger at any time.
“Ming Family? Ha, ha, all right, then I’ll wipe out the entire Ming Family.” Xu Que laughed coldly, and his heart was burning with rage.
At that moment, from a huge mountain not far away, there were a series of Space-Breaking sounds. Five Elders descended from the sky, wearing Taoist robes embroidered with a Seven Star Spell Array on their chests. They had outstanding behavior like that of immortals, and all of them were in the Medium Stage of the Earth Celestial Stage.
“Five Guardians of the Seven Stars Academy?” When Ming Cheng saw them, he was overjoyed and he hurriedly shouted, “Seniors, save me. I’m Ming Cheng, the eldest son of Li Guoming’s family, and a preparatory disciple of the Seven Stars Academy. I’ve the Seven Stars Order!”
With that, he took out the Seven Stars Order that he had received from Lin Yuxi and continued to shout, “This man is a madman. He’s using his Celestial Artifact as an advantage to kill me. I beg the seniors to help me!”
The five Elders were the Five Guardians of the Seven Stars Academy. They had sensed the presence of a Celestial Artifact at the foot of the mountain and had rushed down to inspect. At the same time, they were also casting greedy eyes on the Celestial Artifact—they wanted to own it.
But they didn’t expect such a situation at the foot of the mountain. A young man in the Human Celestial Stage was being chased by another young man in the Human Celestial Stage. The key point was that the man who was under attack was the eldest son of the Ming Family who was holding onto a Seven Stars Order!
The Ming Family wasn’t enough for the Seven Stars Academy to think highly of, but Ming Cheng had the Seven Stars Order. According to the rules, he was already a disciple of the Seven Stars Academy. If a disciple was hunted down, as a Guardian of the Seven Stars Academy, they had the responsibility to protect him.
“Stop, who are you? Why did you commit murder at the foot of the Seven Stars Academy?” Immediately, a Guardian yelled at Xu Que.
“Five Elders, don’t believe that despicable man. The Seven Stars Order was given to me by my Master. He’s the one who wanted to kill us.” Lin Yuxi’s injuries hadn’t yet recovered, but when she heard Ming Cheng’s words, she was trembling with rage.
If Xu Que didn’t wake up, they would be killed by Ming Cheng.
However, the five Elders didn’t pay any attention to Lin Yuxi’s words. The words of someone in the Original Infant Stage weren’t worth their attention.
Just then, Xu Que waved his hand to somewhere not far away. The Sword Spirit sensed Xu Que’s intention. After it took a glance at Xu Que, it stopped fighting with the guards. The black misty body collapsed and surged back into the sharp sword. Then, with a whoosh, the sharp sword pierced through the clouds and returned to Xu Que’s hands.
