When Xu Que finished speaking, everyone looked at the ground, and immediately they got wary.
A very short time ago, the two Taiyi Celestials had been killed and turned into blood mist. Their corpses hadn’t been left behind, but blood had soaked the ground.
Now, however, they had only been gone for a short while, yet the ground had turned perfectly neat and clean. Even the grass was still dark green, and they couldn’t see any bloodstains, as if no one had died here.
It could be easily discerned that something was amiss.
“F*ck! Is it possible that this piece of ground is able to absorb blood? Or did any vampire appear in the vicinity?” Buttface cried out in surprise.
“It’s probably not so simple.” Duan Jiude shook his head, while his expression turned grave.
Xu Que frowned as he examined the surroundings once again. As he observed them, he too now felt that something was fishy. Nothing seemed realistic, and it started with the white fog and continued to the clean ground. He felt like he was in a dream!
Everything was vivid, lifelike, and realistic. But everything still seemed illusory and unreal.
“Is this an illusory realm?” Xu Que uttered a certain possibility.
They might have entered an illusory realm by mistake. This was the most direct explanation they could come up with after observing everything.
“I also think that it might be an illusory realm. But…an illusory realm shouldn’t be so vast. Even though this land is engulfed by clouds and mist, I can still see the mountain ranges far away,” Mo Junchen spoke, while he gazed into the distance.
It was evident there was a giant mountain there. It was called the Fire Mountain. Even though they couldn’t see the flames, they could still detect that it was far away from them.
If they had really entered an illusory realm, it shouldn’t have been possible for them to see that mountain. If they could see it, they were probably able to go there, which meant that this illusory realm’s scope was too great and vast.
“Guardian Mo, your guess isn’t accurate. We have probably entered a great illusory realm that is able to create everything,” Duan Jiude waved his hand and spoke.
Duan Jiude had lived for a period in the Heaven Continent, and his experience surpassed Mo Junchen’s greatly. He knew some powerful beings and was aware that the great illusory realm he had just mentioned really existed.
Even Xu Que had run into one once when he was in the Four Great Continents, and he had entered this illusory realm with Zixia Fairy, There, he had turned into a mortal and lived for ten years. It was only after he had exited it that he realized that only several days had elapsed in the outside world.
It could be said in a sense that such illusory realms weren’t really illusory realms at all, and they were like brand-new worlds.
However, Xu Que still believed that the situation wasn’t so grave, and, at least, their powers hadn’t been suppressed. Moreover, they had only detected that something was amiss from the surroundings. So far, they hadn’t run into any danger.
“It’s still fishy. The danger’s location is probably underground, and this illusory realm is probably related to that woman.” Xu Que suddenly got an idea, and he recalled what Buttface had said previously. Xuanyuan Wanrong’s independent clone was their greatest enemy.
The illusion that they were seeing currently had probably been made by that clone. After all, she was Xuanyuan Wanrong’s clone, and her power wasn’t any weaker than the real Xuanyuan Wanrong’s. It wouldn’t be strange for her to be able to create a great illusory realm.
All of a sudden, a tremendous wave of pressure descended upon the land and engulfed their surroundings instantly.
“Awful! She has really come out.” Xu Que’s expression changed drastically, and he quickly released some of his Celestial Core power, while he retreated along with the others.
But as he moved, the restriction seal atop the tunnel’s entrance was torn open, and a white-clothed person flew out of it.
She wore snow-white clothes that covered her curvaceous body, while she also had a snow-white face with exquisite and breathtaking features. Her brows exposed clearly her ice-cold demeanor, and she was obviously the Xuanyuan Wanrong who Xu Que knew.
Except that the current Xuanyuan Wanrong had an intense fiendish air and seemed like a cruel and ferocious devil. She was very scary!
“The Celestial…the Celestial Prime Stage! D*mn it! How can we still fight?” Buttface shivered with fear, while his face fell.
Mo Junchen, Liu Jingning, and the others looked grave, and wariness was apparent on their faces.
At this moment, the ice-cold gaze of Xuanyuan Wanrong’s clone fell upon Xu Que, and she looked at him for a moment before she spoke coldly. “Why do I feel an extremely horrid aura emanating from you?”
“Huh…?” Xu Que’s expression stiffened, and he forced himself to smile. He said, “I know! Next time…I will use a different brand of washing powder. I can assure you that I will use Diaopai detergent powder, and I won’t use Liby detergent powder any longer.”
Xuanyuan Wanrong’s clone frowned. It was obvious that she couldn’t understand what Xu Que was talking about, but the fiendish and gloomy look plastered on her face still wasn’t alleviated.
At this moment, her white skirt fluttered as she flew toward Xu Que. She said apathetically, “I want to kill you. So, don’t make any rash actions.”
Upon hearing this, Xu Que promptly released a wisp of Celestial Core Power and pushed Liu Jingning and the others toward the rear, while he activated the Firestorm Wheels and retreated.
“Lassie, you want to kill me, yet you still don’t want me to make any rash actions?”
“Do you take me for a fool? You will soon see how I will deal with you…” These thoughts ran through Xu Que’s mind.
All of a sudden, Xu Que was taken aback.
He looked in a daze at the Firestorm Wheels, while shock appeared on his face. He unexpectedly couldn’t even detect the two souls of Guan Chuchu and Xuanyuan Qishang within the wheel, let alone summon them to fight.
“What is going on? Where did the two souls go?” Xu Que spoke in surprise.
How would he fight Xuanyuan Wanrong’s clone without the two souls? His opponent was a true and genuine Celestial Prime powerhouse.
“F*ck! Lad, you mustn’t screw up at such a crucial moment,” upon witnessing this, Buttface shouted in alarm.
“He’s done for! An accident has occurred! We are all done for,” Duan Jiude shook his head sorrowfully.
“Shut up, and quickly try to come up with a solution. It isn’t me that has screwed up, but the two souls. Okay? You should quickly take a look and try to see where they went,” Xu Que spoke angrily.
Xuanyuan Wanrong’s clone had already landed in front of him, and she was emitting a boundless murderous aura. And Buttface and Duan Jiude still had the leisure to shout at will. They really deserved a beating!
“I can detect that your fate is linked with hers. If you live, she will continue living, and if you die, she will also die. This is to my liking,” at this moment, Xuanyuan Wanrong’s clone spoke once again, and she raised her hand. Her fingertip slowly approached Xu Que’s forehead.
“Who cares about your d*mned liking,” Xu Que hurled an insult at her, while he tried to move back.
However, he couldn’t get rid of the clone with his speed. The opponent was a genuine Celestial Prime powerhouse, and there was an unimaginable great disparity between their powers. He couldn’t overcome her.
As the finger approached him more closely, Xu Que stopped moving back and clenched his fist. He thrust his fist at her.
“Exploding Heavens Faction’s King of Tough-Acting Fist: Dragon-Seeking and Cave-Worming Fist!” Xu Que shouted loudly, and uttered a move name at random. As a matter of fact, he consumed 100,000 Acting Tough Points to use the King of Tough-Acting Fist.
The coordination of the King of Tough-Acting Fist with his second-rate holy physique’s physical power instantly formed a giant phantom image of a golden fist, and it fell upon Xuanyuan Wanrong’s clone.
As a loud rumbling sound echoed out, Xuanyuan Wanrong’s clone was hit and sent flying away.
Such a sight left Xu Que dumbfounded, and various thoughts ran through his mind.
“What is going on?”
“Why is she so weak?”
“It’s illogical! This is surely illogical!”
Xu Que frowned and, as he observed this matter with his senses, he found once again that something was amiss. It didn’t matter how strong the coordination of the King of Tough-Acting Fist with the second-rate holy physique was, it still shouldn’t be able to send a being at the Celestial Prime Stage flying.
As Xu Que thought about this matter, he promptly shouted, “Miss, you surely have a complicated history. Come over, and tell us your story.”
