Most of the time, risk had nothing to do with Xu Que. Risky and adventurous experiences that were so dangerous for others were quite safe for Xu Que. With the assistance of his own magic arts and the tools provided by the System, he was always able to solve most crises readily. Of course, he had experienced real risks several times, such as the Heavenly Tribulations and the inheritance of the Mighty Body in the God of Hell’s Realm. Xu Que didn’t take those risks voluntarily. In fact, he had to go through those dangerous situations when he really had no way out.
However, he was facing two options this time. The first option would ensure his safety, while the second one would endanger him. So, Xu Que’s first reaction was to choose the former one. According to his style, he would avoid all unnecessary risk. To live a dashing life after careful development was something he wanted. However, Xu Que hesitated when he looked at the people from the big sects who were standing behind him. On the one hand, he had nothing against these people. On the other hand, Ji Wuyun had even lent him an Inferior Celestial Artifact. He really had no excuse to put them into this danger.
At this time, a fierce and ambitious person would have always chosen the first option without any hesitation in order to save Liu Jingning by sacrificing another person. If one person was not enough, two, three, ten, or even 100 people could also be thrown into this hole! This was the way of a fierce and ambitious person who was cruel, ruthless, and determined to achieve his goal by fair means or foul. Moreover, according to the behavior of people in the World of Cultivators, personal interest was always supreme, and everyone would try to set up others whenever an opportunity to do so arose. Xu Que was not an exception. However, he would only set up his personal enemies because his motto was tit for tat. Therefore, it was very difficult for him to make up his mind to set up these people at this moment.
“Tsk, tsk, tsk, this is really a hard choice to make!” Xu Que sighed and he shook his head as all these thoughts were running through his mind. Then he turned around and started to walk toward that pitch-dark Godhead without any hesitation. He didn’t tell the rest of the people what had happened here. So all the people in this area, including Buttface, Duan Jiude, and Mo Junchen, were shocked by his sudden movement.
“Holy sh*t! Grandpa Xu, what are you going to do? Please don’t do anything stupid!” Buttface shouted anxiously at this time. Hearing that, Xu Que waved his hand but didn’t turn back. He continued to walk forward seriously. He thought it was unnecessary to give an explanation. Since he couldn’t choose the first option, he had to choose the second one.
He knew some old sayings that were quite popular in this world, such as I can wrong this world but the world shall not wrong me, or every man for himself and the devil take the hindmost. But Xu Que found it was impossible for him to destroy the bottom line in his heart. Human nature was evil. But many people had a good heart. Everyone had a bottom line deep in their hearts. Only a few people could be as kind as the Virgin Mary. However, those who destroyed the bottom line in their hearts had lost their humanity.
Xu Que knew he was not a fierce and ambitious man. Actually, he was an unambitious person who had descended to earth and worldly pleasures but still had his principles. He just wanted to do everything that he wanted to do. For him, a freewheeling life was his ambition. Therefore, Xu Que didn’t want to lose his humanity by destroying the bottom line in his heart. For this reason, he chose the second option and decided to confront the risks himself!
BOOM! As he was approaching that pitch-dark Godhead, Xu Que felt his body was becoming increasingly heavy as if his Soul was being pressed to the ground by an enormous hand of an extremely powerful being who was staring at him like he was its prey. The only thing he could do at this moment was to struggle forward under that enormous hand.
“Holy sh*t! I guess this guy has lost his mind!” Seeing that, Buttface was totally dumbfounded. Duan Jiude’s face was also full of shock and puzzlement. This was the first time they had ever seen Xu Que make a decision like this. Now, Xu Que’s figure had become so grand and tragic for them, who believed Xu Que was about to seek his doom.
“What should we do? Should we drag him back?” Duan Jiude asked as he looked at Buttface and Mo Junchen.
“Nonsense. You know him very well. I guess something serious must have happened. When he makes up his mind, nobody could drag him back!” Buttface said as he frowned. Although Xu Que had said nothing, they knew the situation must be very serious. Otherwise, Xu Que would never have acted like this.
“Elder Duan, please practice the divination again to check whether his trip is ominous or not!” Mo Junchen said as he shook his head helplessly after a short hesitation. Duan Jiude nodded his head silently. Then he took out the tortoiseshell and started to practice divination in front of everyone.
At the same time, Xu Que had stopped in front of that pitch-dark Godhead. Although the Godhead was as large as a cave, it seemed larger than any gigantic mountain for Xu Que. In front of this Godhead, his Soul and Taoist Connotation were as small as a drop of water in a sea.
“Xu…Que!” Suddenly, when Xu Que was about to step into the Godhead, a faint voice came into his mind. It was Liu Jingning’s voice, which was quite small. Liu Jingning had recognized Xu Que, and she had started to send him a message. Apparently, Liu Jingning was trapped in this place. Although she was motionless, she hadn’t lost consciousness. On the contrary, she knew her situation in this place quite well.
“Don’t…come closer! Just…go!” Liu Jingning sent another message. Her voice was even weaker, which meant she was very feeble and it was even difficult for her to send a message.
“Don’t talk. I will get you out!” Xu Que replied by sending her a message.
“No! He…he is a deity! You…just go!” Liu Jingning said anxiously for she was worried Xu Que would lose his life in vain.
Xu Que shook his head with a smile, “The difference between a Godhead and a deity is quite large! Little devil, don’t forget my desperate efforts when I get you out. I need a reward, and you should at least commit yourself to me!” Then Xu Que waved his hand to take out the newly forged Tough-Acting King’s Purple-Gold Rod. Meanwhile, his hand had already been wrapped by ice and chilly Qi. He was about to attack with the Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog Hand!
He stared at this pitch-dark Godhead coldly as magnificent killing intent gushed out from his body. It was just something left behind by a dead deity. Why should it be so powerful? Why should it be so overbearing? Why should it devour everything in such a willful way?
I am Xu Que, the Act-Tough Saint who has the Holy Physique, the System, and the Kismet. More important, I also have a handsome face! You are just a Godhead. Why are you so arrogant in front of me? The deity, who was your former owner, is dead! Why are you still lingering in this world? I will never be devoured by you today! Also, I won’t devour you! Because you are doomed to die today!
BOOM! A gust of powerful momentum gushed out from Xu Que’s body and swept over the entire area. He stepped out like a Killer God. Horrible, Terrifying Spiritual Qi was flowing out from the purple-gold rod in his hand and covering the entire area like a thick curtain of clouds. In front of a lot of shocked people Xu Que took his last step and walked into that pitch-dark Secret Door directly!
