Selling… Selling seafood?
Everyone around were completely floored. Even the Water Empress was astonished by this statement.
Some distance away, the merchant selling seafood who was indeed the team leader, was stumped as well.
My god. Who did I offend for this to happen to me? Why did I pull this idiot over and disguise him as a merchant? Why was I such a fool!
The Imperial Guard was extremely flustered and he peeled his sleeves up to his forearms and was about to slap himself several times over for being an idiot!
“Why have you come here?” The Water Empress was trying her hardest not to smile as she spoke to him wordlessly using soul strength to convey her message.
Xu Que’s heart was filled with suspicions. He had no idea how she could recognize him.
He then replied her using his soul strength as well, “How did you recognize me even after I’ve disguised myself this way?”
“Your eyes!” The Water Empress whispered.
Xu Que was taken aback before he composed himself and sighed out. “Indeed, I’ve always known. Someone as outstanding as myself will always stick out like fireflies in the night. I would always shine brightly and magnificently. Especially these eyes of mine which are deep and mysterious, and has captivated you. No matter which corners of the world I end up, you will always be able to recognize me. Is that right?”
When the Water Empress heard this, she laughed gently. When she laughed, her features straightened up and caused waves of beauty to radiate from her in all directions.
Everyone who had seen her laugh were shocked. Even the female Imperial Guards were stumped by this.
How could someone so perfectly beautiful exist in this world!
“The arrival of the Fire Emperor!”
Right at this point, a sharp and high pitched voice rang out from the end of the streets.
Soon after, another powerful wave of energy was sent rippling outwards with the emergence of the Fire Emperor.
He was dressed in golden and red robes which were also filled with dragon embroideries. He was floating above fire clouds and appeared extremely awe inspiring as boundless majestic aura shot out from him.
When everyone turned around to look at him, they held their breaths in utmost reverence and admiration!
Even though he had been humiliated countless of times by Xu Que and caused him to lose face, he was still the Fire Emperor, the monarch of the Fire Nation.
This lofty and regal status was something that nobody could alter.
The Water Empress frowned as she withdrew her smile. She then looked at Xu Que as her lips moved faintly, but she conveyed her words through soul strength once again, “Were you sent here by the Heavenly Explosion Faction?”
She had long heard of the exploits of this powerful sect while on the way to the Fire Nation and had also heard of all the things they had done here. She was taken aback and had never expected to meet Hua Wu Que here, of all places!
However, she had known Hua Wu Que before and was aware of the cultivation realm he was in. Hence, she knew that Hua Wu Que wasn’t as powerful as the Lord Prince Consort Xu Que. But still, she was in full admiration of Hua Wu Que and his talents and didn’t wish to see him being implicated here.
Xu Que didn’t reply to her, his face was still filled with a cold smile as his eyes emanated killing intent. At this point, he didn’t even bother hiding it!
The Fire Emperor looked rather magnificent, like a mighty tiger about to spring on its prey.
After he had been severely wounded by Xu Que, the Fire Emperor’s wounds hadn’t fully recovered. Additionally, Xu Que had absorbed all the Fire Essences from the magma pools. When he found out about this, he was enraged, knowing that the nation’s fortunes had been depleted. Hence, he had secretly arranged for a ritual to be conducted and he was ready to sacrifice Madam Ya to restore his prosperity.
However, it was a pity that just last night, Xu Que had already taken Madam Ya’s purity. Hence, unbeknownst to him, he had already lost the protection of the Fire God.
The Fire Emperor was still in the dark about this matter and his face revealed a smile as he received the Water Empress.
“Hehe… dog Emperor, I shall let you smile for now. Before long, I shall make your cry.” Xu Que was laughing hysterically in his heart.
His plan was very simple. He would wait for the Fire Emperor to come nearer before he attack him. Xu Que would catch him off guard and beat him into a pulp. He would then use a spell to capture him, and act tough from start to end!
At this point, the Water Empress spoke in his mind via soul strength once again.
“Please don’t be reckless. The Fire Emperor has already sent out many spies to find out more about the Heavenly Explosion faction to exact revenge upon you. If you were to show up now, you would be slaughtered like monkeys and chickens.”
“Slaughtered like monkeys and chickens?” Xu Que laughed out coldly. Nobody could ever be sure of who would kill and who would be killed.
The Water Empress shook her head, “There are hundreds of hired assassins waiting outside the city gates. They are the notorious Tian Sha Assassins and even their elder came along. He’s level eight of the Infant Transformation Stage and is a known killer. They’re all waiting for you to reveal yourself!”
“Oh? The dog Emperor even hired the Tian Sha Assassins to come as well?” When Xu Que heard this, he was elated.
This dog Emperor was truly crafty. He actually disguised his guards as merchants and even hired Tian Sha Assassins to trap him.
And yet Xu Que thought that all this was getting fun. He could act tough and even gain a huge amount of experience points by killing these assassins. The more he thought about it, the happier he became.
The Infant Transformation Stage assassin couldn’t be underestimated. But once they lack the protection of Imperial Qi, a single three colored Fiery Lotus infused with the full Glory Killer Blade would be able to finish him off!
“Don’t be brash and wait here for me. I will seek you out later!” The Water Empress Hong Yan spoke to him wordlessly as she soared to the skies.
The water sword flowed seamlessly under her feet and looked extremely majestic, before she soared upwards.
The Fire Emperor was smiling as he exclaimed, “Hong Yan, how’ve you been of late?”
“I’m alright! How has the Fire Emperor been?” The Water Empress smiled as she politely returned the salutation.
Yet her heart wasn’t present. She was prepared to finish this small talk before coming back for Xu Que.
She’d already planned to convince him to leave Heavenly Explosion Faction and join Sky Incense Valley.
Right at this point, Xu Que’s heart and mind was in a mess.
Big sister, what the hell did you fly up for? If you fly up to meet the Fire Emperor, that means he isn’t going to come down. If he’s not fucking coming down, how should I attack him and catch him by surprise? Aren’t you going to let me act tough?
Xu Que’s expression was plain as he cleaned his butcher’s cleaver. If it weren’t for the fact that the Water Empress was so beautiful, he would’ve probably thrown this knife over at her!
“Hong Yan probably already knows of what happened, but she still asked. I’ve been subjected to humiliation over the past few days!” The Fire Emperor shook his head and smiled bitterly, pretending as though he didn’t really care about being humiliated by Xu Que and appeared magnanimous.
The Water Empress drew her lips into a light hearted smile but didn’t speak.
The Fire Emperor then continued, “I guess I’m to blame for being too careless and allowed him to enter the city. Although I managed to make him flee, I failed to capture him. But if he ever dares to show himself here again, he wouldn’t be able to make it out alive.”
“As for this, I can tell!” The Water Empress nodded her head enthusiastically.
The Fire Emperor had taken such a huge setback that he even resorted to inviting the Tian Sha Assassins down and called the notorious and powerful Killer God who was an elder. Clearly, he was confident of his abilities to take down any Heavenly Explosion Faction members if they showed up.
Hence, this was why she had tried to coax Xu Que against being rash.
However, Xu Que had never been afraid of this dog shit Killer God. As soon as he heard the Emperor acting tough, he couldn’t take it anymore.
What a joke. Even the Acting Tough King could act tough, you decided to do it first. What right do you have to say that I wouldn’t be able to make it out alive?
At that second, Xu Que flicked his wrist and sent the butcher’s cleaver flying in the direction of the Fire Emperor’s face.
The blade sliced through the air and made a loud whooshing sound.
However, this was just a normal knife and the Fire Emperor’s strength was immense. He congealed his energy around him and cleared his throat.
“Ba dang!” The cleaver shattered into thousands of fragments as it fell to the ground.
Everyone around was silent and some of the guards were roused. At the next moment, everyone turned to look at Xu Que.
The Water Empress’ face fell. She knew that this wasn’t good and was about to open her mouth to defend him.
However, the Fire Emperor had already stretched his hand out as a wave of powerful crushing pressure rippled out from him. He then shouted out, “The audacity! How dare you attack me in stealth. Who are you?”
“Did you just ask who I am? Haha!!! I’m your father!” Xu Que laughed out icily as he withdrew the Spirits Prison Pagoda. With a simple command in his head, he released the spirit of the Fire Emperor’s own father!
