The Confucian in white had failed to avoid the punch. He was hit hard on the corner of his mouth, his lips torn up by contact with his teeth, and blood spurted out. The Confucian in white hadn’t expected Xu Que to suddenly attack him. But, regardless, Xu Que’s speed was too fast and his strength was beyond the Confucian’s imagination. The punch froze the Confucian in white for an instant. It was difficult for him to realize what had happened.
After all, he had the first-rate Hell King’s Prison Suppression Physique. Although the Mighty Body was very strong, Xu Que’s present Mighty Body was only second-rate. According to his understanding, the second-rate Mighty Body and first-rate Hell King’s Prison Suppression Physique should be the same. However, the current outcome shocked him. Was there such a huge discrepancy between the second-rate Mighty Body and the first-rate Hell King’s Prison Suppression Physique? Unless…
“Bu…Buddy Xu, your physical body, I’m afraid you’ve surpassed the Mighty Body!” The Confucian in white looked at Xu Que in horror. Unless Xu Que’s current Mighty Body was far beyond the original Mighty Body, it was impossible to have such an immense speed and strength. It was simply frightening!
“Uh, I think so, to be honest, I didn’t expect that punch to be so powerful!” Xu Que was somewhat in a daze. A short while ago, he had punched without using any Celestial Core Power. He had not expected that he would achieve such a feat merely with the use of his physical body. If he had met a cultivator who hadn’t refined his physical body, that punch would have smashed and exploded his head.
“Buddy Xu, this may have something to do with the Chaotic Qi you’ve added. It has completely raised the Mighty Body to a new level. Could it be that you have been promoted to the rumored Holy Physique?” The Confucian in white shook his head immediately and said, “No, the Holy Physique has always been just a kind of myth and speculation. No one has ever reached the level of a Holy Physique, but your current state is pretty odd. The fact that a second-rate Mighty Body could actually injure someone like me in the first-rate Hell King’s Prison Suppression Physique—it really shouldn’t be like this!”
The Confucian in white was deep in contemplation and he couldn’t figure out the reason for Xu Que’s enormous strength. After all, although the first-rate Hell King’s Prison Suppression Physique was derived from the Mighty Body of Hades, its actual level wasn’t too low. There was no reason for such a big discrepancy to exist.
“Holy Physique? Is there a higher level of existence than the Mighty Body?” Xu Que also pondered it.
“Uh, wait, no!” Just then, the Confucian in white seemed to have thought of something, and he instantly stared at Xu Que, “We can talk about the physical body later. The issue now is who gave you the right to punch me for no reason?”
“Uh, ya right!” Xu Que collected himself. Why did he punch him, oh yes, he remembered!
His expression darkened and he pointed to the Confucian in white and said, “You old cunning *sshole, the Sect Leader of the Equipment Refining Sect, are you aware of the conflict between the Exploding Heavens Faction and the Equipment Refining Sect? We are arch-enemies. As the saying goes, destroy the leader and the gang will collapse. Since you’re the Sect Leader of the Equipment Refining Sect, what’s wrong with me killing you first?”
“Arch-enemies?” Suddenly, the Confucian in white frowned and said, “Although the Equipment Refining Sect was already strong thousands of years ago, after all, it’s only a society. It doesn’t belong to any major forces, nor does it interfere in the power struggle of all forces. Why would we become the nemesis of the Exploding Heavens Faction?”
“Ha, ha, that was thousands of years ago. Now, the Equipment Refining Sect is formidable. They’ve extended their power into many things. And the reason why I am here is because they sent three King Refiners of the Inferior Artifact to pursue me. They’re absolutely shameless!” Xu Que sneered.
Of course, he omitted explaining how the conflicts were accumulated between the Equipment Refining Sect and him. After all, at first it was really his fault, but that was just a misunderstanding. Both the Equipment Refining Sect and Xu Que didn’t want to embarrass themselves. And because of that misunderstanding, the Equipment Refining Sect wanted to annihilate him. While Xu Que wanted to Act Tough and prove them wrong, the misunderstanding became increasingly serious. Eventually, they became arch-enemies.
“What? The bunch of little b*stards has been so bold that they even forgot the mission of the Equipment Refining Sect. Absurd!” When the Confucian in white heard Xu Que, his expression was filled with rage.
He was the authentic Sect Leader of the Equipment Refining Sect. He had always acted in accordance with the mission of the Equipment Refining Sect. The existence of the Equipment Refining Sect was to cultivate and protect Equipment Refining Masters. They mustn’t intervene in the struggle for power of all forces. Otherwise, what was the difference between them and the other factions—fighting for power and money under the name of protecting the Equipment Refining Masters? This was against the mission of the Equipment Refining Sect, which was set up by the pioneers.
“Yo, in that case, you’re different from them?” Xu Que raised his eyebrows and asked.
“Of course, Buddy Xu, you can rest assured about this matter. I, Mo Junchen, swear by my Inner Demons, after leaving here, I’ll reorganize the Equipment Refining Sect. If someone really used the fame of the Equipment Refining Sect to fight for power, I will severely punish them, even if it’s the present Sect Leader, I’ll not let it slip!” The Confucian in White said solemnly.
After all, there was no longer a conflict between Xu Que and the Equipment Refining Sect. It was their internal problem—someone was making use of the Equipment Refining Sect!
“All right, since you’ve said that, I’ll let you go!” Xu Que laughed and waved his hand. He retrieved his Thunder Illusion Body that had sneaked up behind Mo Junchen.
Mo Junchen, the Confucian in white, felt his lips twitch. If Xu Que hadn’t just taken away his Thunder Illusion Body, Mo Junchen wouldn’t have known that he was about to be attacked.
“By the way, Senior Mo, I have something to ask you. Now that the passageway between the Earth Continent and the Heaven Continent has been sealed, do you know any way to open it? Or could you help me get over to the Heaven Continent?”
He once again addressed him as senior, not only because of the gap in their Cultivation Stages, but also because of Mo Junchen’s upright demeanor. It was what Xu Que truly admired.
“The passageway between the Earth Continent and the Heaven Continent has been sealed? Someone in the Heaven Continent must be behind this. I’m afraid it’s difficult to open it. But it’s not necessary to go through the passageway to get to the Heaven Continent. I know of a place where you and I can tear it apart to gain entrance to the Heaven Continent!” Mo Junchen frowned. Obviously, this wasn’t the first time that the passageway between the Earth Continent and the Heaven Continent had been sealed. At least thousands of years ago, in the era of Mo Junchen, he had met with such a problem before.
“Yo, that’s nice to know. I’ll now get rid of the restriction spells here. Senior Mo, I’m sorry for the punch earlier. Please forgive me!” Xu Que immediately did a fist and palm salute and made a polite apology.
“Forget it!” Mo Junchen shook his hand. “The punch was justified, after all. It was my Equipment Refining Sect that had offended you. But these days, young people like you who dare to love and hate freely and have good manners are rare. I truly admire you!”
“Ha, ha, Senior Mo, I like you too!” Xu Que laughed happily. He liked to be praised for his politeness.
“Ha, ha, ha!” Mo Junchen laughed brightly, and he was even more pleased with Xu Que. Mo Junchen thought that this young man was very interesting, and he knew his limits, unlike some other geniuses who would fight to the death if there was any disagreement and didn’t adhere to rules at all. Some young people even went overboard and massacred the whole clan of their enemy.
“Buddy Xu, you and I are fated to get along. From now on, you can call me Elder Brother Mo, and I will call you Younger Brother Xu, how about this?” Mo Junchen laughed. On one hand, he admired Xu Que’s character. On the other, he was convinced that Xu Que’s potential was infinite—he would be extraordinary with the Mighty Body in times to come.
“Well, of course, no problem, Younger Brother Mo!” Xu Que laughed and patted Mo Junchen on his shoulder.
“Elder Brother Xu!” Mo Junchen laughed and patted Xu Que on his shoulder.
Then the smile on Mo Junchen’s face suddenly froze.
Uh? There seems to be something wrong with this!
