GASP! Instantly, the entire area was filled with gasps. Bai Cailing and the old woman who was a Taiyi Genuine Celestial from the Jade Lake, as well as the rest of the disbanded cultivators, looked at Xu Que in surprise with their eyes wide. Only a few people knew about things that had happened in the Heaven Palace Sect. However, almost all powerful cultivators knew what had happened to the predecessors of the Heaven Palace Academy!
After the era of the deities, the prosperous era of the Celestial Emperor had fallen into decay. All the apprentices of the Heaven Palace Sect, which was the most powerful sect on the Heaven Continent, died overnight. All their Elders and Building Heads also disappeared. Up until now, nobody knew what had happened to this sect. After that destruction, a temporary apprentice who had been expelled set up the Heaven Palace Academy on the Heaven Continent to show respect and commemorate the Heaven Palace Sect. “How could this old man say he wiped out the Heaven Palace Sect? Does it mean he is a…Celestial Emperor?” Everyone present was thinking these same thoughts. They were all totally shocked.
Buttface and Duan Jiude were also dumbfounded. They just stood there and looked at Xu Que in a daze. Their eyes were full of admiration. The only feeling in their hearts was admiration because they were totally impressed. Nobody could act tough like this. Xu Que provoked the Heaven Palace Academy and even declared that he had wiped out the Heaven Palace Sect, which was awesome for Buttface and Duan Jiude. Only Mo Junchen was standing there in puzzlement, thinking, “When did Xu Que wipe out the Heaven Palace Sect? No way! He wasn’t even born when the Heaven Palace Academy was established, let alone the Heaven Palace Sect! This guy is so audacious! How could he say that?” Mo Junchen was confused when he saw the onlookers’ shocked expressions. “But…why is this scene so familiar?”
At last, in front of so many shocked eyes, Xu Que waved his hand to give a sign to Bai Cailing that it was the time for them to leave.They jumped up into the sky and went back to the Jade Lake by taking many teleportation devices.
On the way, Xu Que checked his Acting Tough Points. They had almost reached 2 million points! He had used the Act-Tough King’s Leg several times when he was in the space of the Godhead. But he had managed to earn Acting Tough Points back after that. Especially when he was fighting against Yi Dan, a lot of apprentices of the Divine Farmer Clan were terrified by him, which also brought him a large number of Acting Tough Points.
Then, when he made a speech after leaving the ruins, he also earned hundreds of thousands of Acting Tough Points. His words stunned countless cultivators in the area. Even the Jade Lake’s Taiyi Genuine Celestial had been intimidated by him. On their way back to the Jade Lake, Xu Que’s words, which were still being spread, continued to earn a lot of Acting Tough Points for him. Seeing that, Xu Que couldn’t help but smile. Those tough words were really profitable. As for the consequences of those words, who cares?
Dozens of days later, they arrived at the Jade Lake successfully. The treatment Xu Que received now was totally different from before. Although Bai Cailing said nothing, Xu Que got a far bigger room, which was more spacious and luxurious than the room he had lived in last time. Apparently, this room was used to accommodate the big shots from other big sects. Now, Xu Que was also “qualified” to enjoy it.
The Jade Lake also took good care of Buttface and Duan Jiude. The troubles they had made in the Jade Lake before were ignored. Now, the Jade Lake would grant whatever was requested by Buttface and Duan Jiude. Soon Buttface and Duan Jiude became so conceited. They just wandered around in the Jade Lake every day as if the Jade Lake was the backyard of their house.
Mo Junchen became more curious because the weird feeling in his heart was growing every day. They had stayed on the Heaven Continent for a long time after setting off from the Earth Continent. However, Xu Que and his teammates were always on the run or survived by fooling others. And Mo Junchen had never seen the 1 million faction members mentioned by Xu Que. More importantly, Mo Junchen was perturbed by the speech Xu Que had made outside the ruins of the ancient battlefield. He had provoked the Heaven Palace Academy and declared the Heaven Palace Sect had been ruined by him. The consequences of his action could be disastrous! After all, the Heaven Palace Sect had been ruined inexplicably, and nobody dared to mention it casually now.
However, when Mo Junchen thought of the other identity of Xu Que, he calmed down reluctantly. Xu Que said he had the Taiyi Heaven Book and was the one chosen by Heaven. Also, his cultivation companion was Xuanyuan Wanrong, who was the Building Head of the Heaven Palace Sect’s South Building. Now, Xu Que was constantly talking big in front of so many people. Mo Junchen believed Xu Que was planning something. Otherwise, a Faction Leader’s behavior would never be so ridiculous.
One night, Buttface organized a hotpot dinner only for Xu Que and his teammates. Mo Junchen was about to refuse the invitation. However, out of the curiosity in his heart, he knocked at Xu Que’s door at last. There, he found Xu Que, Buttface, Duan Jiude, and Liu Jingning were eating hotpot and talking freely. After finishing the dinner, Mo Junchen brought up his questions as he looked at Xu Que curiously. “Faction Leader, could you tell me something about the speech you made outside the ruins of the ancient battlefield?” He tended to believe Xu Que had a plan. After all, for him, Xu Que was a genius!
Xu Que was stunned a bit by his question, “What did I say outside the ruins of the ancient battlefield?”
“…..” Mo Junche’s eyes got very wide. He realized Xu Que really had forgotten what he had said.
“Holy shIt! Little brat, how could you forget what you said? You said you wiped out the Heaven Palace Sect and also provoked the Heaven Palace Academy!” Buttface said inarticulately as he poured liquor into his mouth. Apparently, he had drunk too much. His words reminded Xu Que, who said with a faint smile, “Oh, I remember it now. It was nothing but a passing remark! Guardian Mo, please don’t take it too seriously!”
“A passing remark?” Mo Junchen almost fell to the ground off his chair. “How could you talk about this issue casually?” was running through his head. Mo Junchen said seriously, “Faction Leader, this issue is not a trifling matter but quite serious. Your words will definitely cause an enormous impact. If a cultivator who is more powerful than a Celestial King or even a Celestial Emperor still exists in this world, I’m afraid the Exploding Heavens Faction will be in great danger!”
“Why are you so cowardly?” Buttface shouted as he stood up, patting the table, “If those Celestial Kings or Celestial Emperors dare to stop us, I will definitely kill them!”
“Exactly! Members of the Exploding Heavens Faction fear nothing! Before this, we have always been chased or threatened by others. Now, I am very glad we have become more powerful! The Exploding Heavens Faction is awesome! Mr. Buttface, bottoms up!” Duan Jiude also raised his glass to show his support for Buttface.
“Brother Que, please march forward courageously, and I will be right behind you! Bottoms up!” Buttface clinked glasses with Duan Jiude and tossed off the glass gracefully. Mo Junchen’s eyes got wide, and he was about to say something.
KNOCK! KNOCK! KNOCK! Suddenly, someone hurriedly knocked on the door. A female apprentice, who was standing outside the door, said anxiously, “Elder Xu, something really bad has happened. Your words have spread to the Ziwei Celestial Realm. The Dean of the Heaven Palace Academy replied to you personally. It seems he has been annoyed by your words!”
“What?” Hearing that, the people in the room made eye contact in surprise. Buttface opened the door wide, “What happened? Tell us the details!”
The female apprentice replied hurriedly, “The Dean of the Heaven Palace Academy said the Heaven Palace Sect’s mishap was caused by an unknown reason, and it was not wiped out by someone. He said Elder Xu sails under false colors and will pay a price for disrespecting the Heaven Palace Sect!”
BANG! Xu Que hit the table and stood up, as he shouted, “How dare the Dean of the Heaven Palace Academy say those words! This is totally unacceptable! Let’s go! I will find him and teach him a lesson!” After saying that, he walked out, holding Liu Jingning’s hand. Seeing that, Buttface and Duan Jiude put away the hotpot and left together with Mo Junchen, following Xu Que.
Their reaction really shocked the female apprentice of the Jade Lake. Bai Cailing had asked her to deliver a message. The high-level management of the Jade Lake were all talking about this issue. However, Xu Que and his teammates left the Jade Lake directly for the Heaven Palace Academy to teach the Dean a lesson. The female apprentice was at a loss what to do. But she didn’t dare to stop them and could only watch their departure with widened eyes. By the time the high-level management of the Jade Lake realized what had happened, Xu Que and his teammates had already disappeared.
That night, Xu Que, who appeared at the border of the Tianxiang Celestial Realm, caused an uproar. He spoke solemnly to the public, “I am a man who is ready to shoulder responsibility at any time. But I have never said I wiped out the Heaven Palace Sect! Therefore, on behalf of the Exploding Heavens Faction, I hereby condemn and lodge a strong protest against those who spread this rumor! Wise men don’t believe in rumors! I hope the public can stop relaying an erroneous message! And please contact Buttface for anything else you want to know!”
