At this moment, Xu Que’s body was wrapped by a peaceful and upright aura, which kept dispelling those morbid Qi. It was the aura of Buddhism, which was peaceful, upright, and masculine!
Xu Que had purchased many Buddha beads and necklaces from the System store, which were full of the peaceful aura of Buddhism. In other words, they had been enshrined by eminent monks and could dispel morbid Qi. Before coming into this place, he didn’t wear these things on his body. When he knew this place was full of morbid Qi, he purchased many Buddha beads and necklaces and wore them on his neck. He didn’t expect those items would be discovered by Bai Cailing before he could finish acting tough.
Apparently, Bai Cailing knew those Buddha beads and necklaces were extraordinary. So, she was looking at Xu Que thoughtfully. At this time, she got a growing sense that this Elder Xu was not as kind as he used to be. However, she was not surprised, for Xu Que’s father would never be an ordinary person!
“Heh, heh, your vision is pretty good!” Xu Que smiled as he looked at Bai Cailing. Then he took off the Buddha beads and said calmly, “I haven’t finished speaking yet. To dispel the morbid Qi, we should get rid of the Inner Demon in our hearts by pursuing inner peace. Also, we should use the strength of Buddhism to dispel the morbid Qi!”
Xu Que gave more than ten Buddha beads to Bai Cailing as he said, “As the stipulations in the Buddhist scriptures, we shall not do evil of any form and we shall accumulate excellent merits. The central signification of Buddhism is to clean our minds through continuous cultivation! Sometimes, the morbid Qi is something fabricated by us to fool ourselves. The evil intention is like a string in our heart. When it is plucked by the morbid Qi, we use it to play the music of killing!”
“What Elder Xu said is correct! The nature of humans is evil. And cultivators are still human beings!” Bai Cailing nodded her head as she gave the Buddha beads to the apprentices of the Jade Lake.
When Xu Que took out so many Buddha beads from the System store, he was planning to give them to the people from the Jade Lake. However, he had to act tough before doing that for he needed to earn the Acting Tough Points back. All those Buddha beads and necklaces were high-grade magic artifacts. Although they were not as precious as the Celestial Artifacts, they were still sold at a high price in the System store.
When they wore those Buddha beads on their bodies, the morbid Qi in their bodies was dispelled slowly. Soon, all of them were free from the influence of the morbid Qi in this area. At this moment, people from the Jade Lake started to look at Xu Que curiously. They thought this old man couldn’t even protect himself in this area. They didn’t expect he would save them by providing them with so many Buddhist magic artifacts.
“Thank you, Elder Xu!” After removing the morbid Qi from her body, Bai Cailing thanked Xu Que as she looked at him gratefully. She knew clearly that the apprentices of the Jade Lake would be influenced by the morbid Qi and start to attack each other soon if Xu Que hadn’t given them these Buddhist magic artifacts.
“Never mind! We are of the same family but you are treating me like an outsider!” Xu Que waved his hand and said calmly as he turned to those sovereigns who were still killing each other at the center of the altar. Bai Cailing shook her head with a wry smile. Xu Que’s words stressed her out, but she didn’t know how to respond to him. She knew this Elder Xu was treating her as his daughter-in-law wittingly or unwittingly.
“Holy Virgin, what should we do now? We can only move backward and can’t move forward on this altar. If we can’t break the restrictive spells, we won’t be able to reach the other side!” A guardian said in a low voice at this time.
Bai Cailing shook her head, “We are not able to break those restrictive spells easily. At least none of us could do that now, unless…that remnant soul could be reunited to suppress those restrictive spells!”
Hearing that, the rest of the people became speechless. Xu Que also said nothing for what Bai Cailing had said was right. If they wanted to break the restrictive spells on this altar, they had to reunite the remnant soul to suppress those restrictive spells. In this way, they could reach the other side of the altar.
Buttface and Duan Jiude must have come to this place before. According to their style, would they leave that remnant soul untouched? That was impossible! They would have taken the remnant soul away unless they didn’t know how to handle it. So, in order to reach the other side, they had to find a way to reunite the remnant soul.
“Elder Xu, could you dispel the morbid Qi in their bodies?” Bai Cailing asked as she looked at Xu Que at this time. She tried to ask Xu Que to stop those sovereigns from killing each other by dispelling the morbid Qi in their bodies. If they needed to reunite the remnant soul, they had to ask those sovereigns to hand over the soul fragments obtained by them. Now, they were busy killing each other and it was impossible to talk with them for anyone who came close would be implicated in their bloody fight immediately.
“Eh? Dispel their morbid Qi?” Hearing that, Xu Que was confused and almost laughed out loud. Are you kidding me? How could you be so merciful to those people? Isn’t it more convenient to erase these people by letting them kill each other when they are influenced by the morbid Qi?
“Elder Xu, I know this is a little bit too much for you. But…all these people are distinguished sovereigns. If all of them die here, the Jade Lake will become the target of their sects!” Bai Cailing, who knew what Xu Que was thinking, explained with a wry smile. She had no other options. If she was a disbanded cultivator, she would wait until all those sovereigns were dead and obtain their storage rings to reunite the remnant soul, so that she could leave here safely.
It was a pity that she was the Holy Virgin of the Jade Lake. Many people saw her come into this place with many apprentices of the Jade Lake. If all people from the Jade Lake left this place safely while all those sovereigns died here, the Jade Lake would be suspected of causing their deaths. The most direct suspicion would be that the Jade Lake killed the sovereigns of those big sects by colluding with Buttface and Duan Jiude. Then the Jade Lake would become the common enemy of those sects. In that case, the loss would outweigh the gains!
“Alas! Holy Virgin, I know what you are talking about!” Xu Que sighed as he shook his head at this time. “It is a pity that I am only a cultivator at the Half-Celestial Stage who is not able to dispel so many morbid Qi!”
Apparently, Xu Que didn’t want to do that. He had made up his mind to kill people from the Divine Farmer Clan. And he wouldn’t help the sovereigns from the other sects without any cause or reason. These sovereigns were greedy and even participated in the plan of threatening Buttface and Duan Jiude by capturing Liu Jingning. How could Xu Que save them?
“Elder Xu, I know you have a method!” Bai Cailing looked at Xu Que seriously. Her crystal-clear eyes were full of wisdom as if she knew everything clearly!
