Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Outside the ruins of the ancient battlefield, the area near the entrance was filled with a lot of cultivators. When several guardians and about 100 apprentices of the Divine Farmer Clan walked out, the entire area fell into a dead silence. All the people in this area were shocked and thought to themselves, “Why did they come back after such a short time?” The next moment, they saw two apprentices of the Divine Farmer Clan bring out a headless corpse. Immediately, all the onlookers were in an uproar.
“Is that…Yi Dan?”
“It is really him! That’s the robe he was wearing when he went into that place!”
GASP! “Did he really die in there?”
“Someone smashed in his head and left him without a complete body. Who was that ruthless guy?”
“Wait! Something is wrong! Yi Dan was killed. But his guardians and most of the apprentices survived. This is almost the same thing that happened to Yi Zhong!”
“Why didn’t they avenge their sovereigns?”
Many people were talking about this issue in terror. However, people from the Divine Farmer Clan ignored the onlookers and just looked at an old man seriously at this moment. That old man was the Divine Farmer Clan’s Taiyi Genuine Celestial! The old man squinted his eyes as he stared at Yi Dan’s corpse. Then he turned to the guardians. The guardians were moving their lips slightly. Apparently, they were reporting the situation to the old man by sending messages to him. The old man’s expression changed instantly. His eyes were filled with surprise and terror. The next moment, he stood up abruptly. Then he jumped up into the sky and flew toward their gigantic ship in the sky without any hesitation. The guardians and apprentices of the Divine Farmer Clan said nothing and also left, following the old man.
After several seconds, the gigantic ship was activated in the sky. Then it dashed toward the horizon rapidly, leaving a gale behind it. The other people standing around in this area were puzzled by this scene. Nobody could understand what had happened. According to the reaction of the people from the Divine Farmer Clan, they knew something serious had happened!
“Did you see that? It seemed as if the Taiyi Genuine Celestial was also terrified!”
“Yeah, I saw that. I thought it was an illusion. Does it mean something horrible has appeared in the ruins?”
“I guess the situation is quite complicated. Think about the expression of those sovereigns who left here just now. I guess they know something about what happened in the ruins!”
“Right! Before leaving here, Ji Wuyun said Yi Dan should stay out of this place if he wanted to stay alive. Now, Ji Wuyun’s warning has been fulfilled. Yi Dan rushed into this place and left as a headless corpse!”
“Now, all the people from the Divine Farmer Clan have left. I’m afraid we can only get information from the people of the Jade Lake who will come out later!”
“Exactly! Was Yi Zhong really killed by Xu Que’s father? What happened to Yi Dan in this place?”
The onlookers kept talking about this issue. Someone even made bold predictions that the deity was still alive in the ruins. Someone guessed it was an internal conflict of the Divine Farmer Clan. Yi Zhong and Yi Dan were killed by the traps set up by other sovereigns of the Divine Farmer Clan who were competing for the position of Holy Son.
Outside the crowd, an old woman of the Jade Lake was relaxing by sitting on a futon with her legs crossed and her eyes closed. She was the Taiyi Genuine Celestial who had come here together with Xu Que. When she heard the discussions of these onlookers, she opened her eyes slowly and turned to the gigantic ship of the Divine Farmer Clan that was flying away rapidly. She couldn’t help but frown. Apparently, she was surprised and puzzled by the reaction of the Divine Farmer Clan.
A moment later, more clamor came from the entrance of the ancient battlefield. “Look! The people of the Jade Lake are coming out!”
“My God! It seems as if they don’t have any casualties!”
“Wait! That dog and Duan Jiude are also with them. Also, that woman from the Utopia Faction has come out!”
“Look at that old man! He is still quite frail like he was before going into this place. He is still at the Half-Celestial Stage. Was Yi Zhong really killed by him?” The onlookers were gossiping and yelling in surprise. Led by Bai Cailing,the people from the Jade Lake walked out of the ruins together with Xu Que, Buttface, Duan Jiude, Liu Jingning, and Mo Junchen.
Someone shouted at Xu Que directly, “Xu Que’s father, did you kill Yi Zhong? And how did Yi Dan die?” Someone asked Bai Cailing, “Holy Virgin, is the Jade Lake going to start a war with the Divine Farmer Clan? Could you tell us what’s going on?” Bai Cailing shook her head slightly and ignored these people. When she had just exited, the Taiyi Genuine Celestial had sent her a message to ask her about what things had happened in the ruins. Bai Cailing moved her lips slightly to report to the old woman by sending her a message.
With a kind smile on his face, Xu Que, who was being supported by Buttface, was walking out slowly with a cane in his hand. He had killed Yi Zhong and Yi Dan during this adventure, which was quite profitable for him! He had managed to save Liu Jingning. And he had vented his anger by killing Yi Zhong and Yi Dan. Most important, he had obtained the Tough-Acting King’s Purple-Gold Rod, which he had reforged with the divine fire in the ruins. Now, he had reached the Medium Stage of the Earth Celestial Stage from the summit of the Human Celestial Stage. Moreover, he had also obtained the Divine Aperture’s Shell and a bodily movement magic art!
The Providence Seclusion Escape inherited by him was an extremely powerful magic art. When Xu Que was fighting against the apprentices of the Divine Farmer Clan, he used this bodily movement magic art to move instantly. Even the guardians at the summit of the Golden Celestial Stage were not able to track him. Therefore, he had managed to kill several apprentices at the Earth Celestial Stage in a flash. Xu Que was quite satisfied with this weird but swift bodily movement magic art.
Now he had obtained the Holy Physique, and his Cultivation Stage had also been enhanced. With the assistance of the divine magic arts like the Hades Nine Nether Slash and the Providence Seclusion Escape, as well as the Tough-Acting King’s Purple-Gold Rod, a High-grade Celestial Artifact, Xu Que didn’t want to keep a low profile anymore!
In front of the onlookers’ curious eyes, Xu Que stopped walking and gave a sign to Buttface. Buttface shouted immediately, “Be quiet! Be quiet! Brother Que’s father has something to say!” Hearing that, people stopped talking and fixed their eyes on Xu Que. Xu Que said as he looked at the onlookers with a smile, “You want to know whether Yi Zhong was killed by me, right? Yes! I killed him and I also killed Yi Dan!”
“Wow!” Hearing that, all the onlookers were in an uproar again. Before that, it was just speculation, and they weren’t sure if they believed it or not. Now, Xu Que had admitted it in front of them! They couldn’t help but wonder, “How could a frail old man at the Half-Celestial Stage kill Yi Zhong and Yi Dan, who were sovereigns at the Heaven Celestial Stage?” Moreover, the guardians at the summit of the Golden Celestial Stage didn’t try to avenge the two sovereigns. On the contrary, they just left with the dead bodies of the sovereigns in dismay. This was so weird and unreasonable!
“Why did I kill them? The answer is quite simple!” Xu Que continued. His voice was booming and the smile on his face had disappeared. “First, Liu Jingning is my…my son’s woman! Yi Zhong offended me by threatening her. So, I had to kill him! Second, Yi Dan, who didn’t know chalk from cheese, tried to avenge Yi Zhong by attacking me. So he was also killed! Third, and this is the most important point. Yi Zhong and Yi Dan were not as handsome as I am!”
Xu Que’s answer dropped the entire area into silence again. The onlookers felt their lips were twitching. They were all thinking the same thing: “The first two reasons were understandable. What the h*ll is that third reason? Yi Zhong and Yi Dan were not as handsome as you are? Come on, old man, you have nothing to do with handsomeness now! The point is that even if Yi Zhong and Yi Dan were not as handsome as you are, did they have to die? Is it wrong to be ugly?”
However, nobody dared to say any of that in front of Xu Que. The main reason for the onlookers to keep silent was that they had also realized something at this moment. This old man was definitely not at the Half-Celestial Stage! When they thought of the expression of the Divine Farmer Clan’s Taiyi Genuine Celestial as well as his abrupt departure, a horrible idea appeared in the hearts of all the onlookers. It is highly possible that this old man is a Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven or he might even be…a Celestial King who is more powerful than a Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven!
“By the way, I still have something to announce!” Xu Que said again at this time. This time, the entire area got very quiet. All the people held their breaths, waiting for Xu Que’s words with serious expressions. Xu Que lifted his arm and pointed at the east. Then he said with a faint smile, “I have heard that I have another daughter-in-law, whose name is Jiang Hongyan! And I have also heard that she was forced to perform cultivation in the Heaven Palace Academy! So, please, deliver a message to the Heaven Palace Academy for me. I destroyed the Heaven Palace Sect. Now, after what I have heard about this so-called Heaven Palace Academy…heh, heh, I feel my hands are itchy!”
