“Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 140 act tough points!”
“Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 150 act tough points!”
“Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 180 act tough points!”
The system rang out repeatedly in Xu Que’s head and his act tough points increased dramatically.
At this point, everything was silent!
All the Imperial Guards including the Water Empress were stumped.
They’re thoroughly shocked!
Spirits of the Form Synthesis Stage, all of them were previous Fire Emperors. They were eighteen generations of ancestors belonging to the Imperial family and they had all arrived!
The crowd could only watch on, feeling as though their minds were completely blank!
Additionally, the fight earlier had also alerted many civilians and cultivators inside their homes. At this point, many of them spilled out onto the streets to watch the spectacle. They came out just as Xu Que started to release all the spirits from the Pagoda.
Even them were stupefied by this scene!
“The spirits of historical Fire Emperors! How… How’s this possible?”
“Even the spirit of the very first Fire Emperor who had established this Nation is here too!”
“What… What kind of feud is this? He actually had to drag his enemy’s eighteen generations of ancestors into this dispute. He really wants the Fire Emperor to never have a moment of peace!”
“This Xu Que is truly a chip of the old block. I am almost certain that he’s the disciple of Duan Jiu De. This pair of master-disciple are truly Que De, lacking in morals!”
“They’re too scary!”
“And have you heard? These spirits were brought out by Zhang Qi Ling of the Heavenly Explosion Faction.”
“That means to say that the rumors of Zhang Qi Ling entering the Imperial Tombs a few days ago are true. And that he managed to come out of the Tombs alive!”
“Damn it. This Heavenly Explosion Faction is too powerful! Each one of their disciples were so talented.”
“First, it was the master of poems, Li Bai who was unrivaled. Then came Xu Que, whose strength and powers were monstrous. Today, we’ve finally heard of the expert grave robber Zhang Qi Ling!”
“That’s not all. I’ve even heard more news about the Heavenly Explosion Faction. Guess what I’ve heard?”
“What did you hear?”
“About half a year ago, a disciple of the Heavenly Explosion Faction called Xiao Yan annihilated an entire Sect with nine of their Elders being at the Original Infant Stage. And Xiao Yan was only at the Core Bearing Stage then!”
“Is that true?”
“Of course it’s true. Even before that, another Heavenly Explosion Faction disciple showed up at the Sky Incense Valley Trial Area. His name was Hua Wu Que and was of the Core Bearing Stage. He killed more than a hundred cultivators who was of the same cultivation level as him easily and even burnt all the Sky Miscanthus without batting an eyelid. He then vandalized an area in the testing grounds. Soon after, he managed to ascend to the eighth floor of the Soul Tower before vanishing just like that!”
“Hsss!” The crowd inhaled deeply.
Damn it. This Heavenly Explosion Faction was too scary. Just a random disciple from their sect was so powerful and awesome!
And, each one of them would kill without hesitation!
The Water Empress’ eyes were completely focused on Xu Que and never left his body.
Her once still and calm disposition was now replaced by frantic and violent heartbeats.
Xu Que’s performance had left her completely dumbstruck, having exceeded her wildest imaginations.
At first, the Water Empress had thought that Heavenly Explosion Faction was a secret sect that was full of talented individuals and the entire sect was worthy of being recruited into Sky Incense Valley.
But now, she finally understood Xu Que’s identity and recognized that he was the “Hua Wu Que” from before. She also started hearing rumors about this Zhang Qi Ling!
The Water Empress seemed to have realized something, for she was completely bowled over at the next moment.
‘Could all these people be the same person? Could they all be disguises of this young man? If he was the only person in Heavenly Explosion Faction from the start… That would really scare countless of people!’ The Water Empress thought to herself.
The Imperial Guards on the streets were trembling in fear at this point and they stopped doubting Xu Que.
These spirits were definitely the ancestors of the Fire Emperor.
If not, who would ever be capable enough to create images of spirits who were of the Form Synthesis Stage?
No, that was absolutely impossible!
Form Synthesis Stage was impossible to be replicated or created!
For that cultivation level meant that a cultivator was already very close to becoming an immortal, even if it was just a spirit, nobody would ever be able to create a likeness of such a powerful realm!
But, these previous Emperors, how did they end up becoming mere spirits and why did they remain within the Imperial Tomb?
What happened to them?
And how did Zhang Qi Ling of Heavenly Explosion Faction managed to enter the tombs so effortlessly and come out of it alive? He even managed to bring out eighteen generations of Fire Emperors out. That’s almost doing the impossible and unthinkable!
The Fire Emperor had long turned pale since. His entire face froze as he watched on.
His fists were clenched up and his veins were bulging out. He gritted his teeth, not in humiliation but in rage. He was so angry that his body was trembling violently.
“Dog Emperor!” Xu Que shouted out angrily.
The Fire Emperor jumped up in shock and looked at Xu Que with eyes filled with dread.
“Eighteen generations of your forefathers are here. Why aren’t you kneeling down?” Xu Que’s voice was powerful as it resonated in the air. At the same time, he dragged all the eighteen spirits as they inched closer towards the Fire Emperor.
Xu Que didn’t wish to end this conflict between them yet. However, since he had already finished acting tough, it was now time to drag the Fire Emperor into the Imperial Tombs and make him bleed.
However, the Fire Emperor’s movement speed was extremely fast since he was in the Infant Transformation Stage. He was also trying to keep a safe distance away from Xu Que with his back facing against the Imperial Palace.
Xu Que didn’t wish for the Fire Emperor to dash into the palace and hide there. Although he had already extracted all the Essences from the magma pool above the Dragon Veins, he knew that there was still a small amount of Imperial Qi from the Dragon Veins which the Fire Emperor could draw upon once he was near the boundaries of the palace.
Trying to defeat the Fire Emperor with his Imperial Qi was going to be a little difficult and troublesome for Xu Que who hasn’t purchased his fourth mystical flame yet.
Additionally, Xu Que wasn’t particularly confident of chasing him down before the Emperor reached the palace.
Hence, the only other option was to take advantage of this situation and inch nearer to the Fire Emperor, step by step.
All of a sudden, the Fire Emperor could feel Xu Que’s attempt to close in on him and his face fell.
Under the watchful eyes of everyone else, he forsaked the Imperial Guards around him and turned around to flee as fast as he could towards the Imperial Palace!
Everyone present were stumped by this!
As the monarch of the Fire Nation, did he just run away in fear? He looked like an abandoned dog speeding towards the palace, scared for his life.
Even the Water Empress was astonished. She never expected the Fire Emperor to be so cowardly.
When Xu Que saw the Fire Emperor fleeing, he was displeased, as he shouted out, “Dog Emperor, come out and fight me alone!”
Soon after, Xu Que dragged eighteen generations of Fire Emperor spirits and soared into the air before speeding towards the Imperial Palace!
“Xiu!” At the same time, a sound rang out in the skies above the Imperial Palace. A red flaming arrow shot into the air before exploding while in the midsts of clouds. The red arrow exploded in a powerful and bright burst of lights!
This was the signal from the Fire Emperor to the Tian Shan Assassins, that it was time to move!
“Be careful!” The Water Empress frowned as she communicated a message to Xu Que’s mind.
Xu Que didn’t seem too worried by it as he continued dragging the eighteen spirits along with him as though he was flying a kite around the domains of the Imperial Palace.
“Dog Emperor! Quickly come on out! Eighteen generations of your ancestors are flying in the air!”
Eighteen Fire Emperor spirits were being swung around wildly by Xu Que in the air!
One took the form of an “S”.
While another took the form of a “B”
Indeed, the Fire Emperor decided to not show his face any longer. He would never leave the palace and fight with Xu Que, away from his Imperial Qi protection!
“Young man, please don’t be rash. There’s an Imperial Qi protection in the palace. You shouldn’t go in. If the Tian Sha Assassins combine strength with the Fire Emperor, you wouldn’t stand a chance of winning. The Tian Sha Assassin’s have many unorthodox methods of killing!” The Water Empress reminded Xu Que once again.
“Heheh… I’m not thinking of going in, not because I think I won’t succeed. It’s because that dog Emperor’s tortoise shell is way too hard and too inconvenient for me to break through. Come on then, my lady, stand by the side and watch me make him cry!”
Xu Que laughed coldly as he swung the chains in his hands once more. At the same time, he retrieved the electronic keyboard from his system interface and allowed it to float in mid air before him.
Soon after, he condensed his dantian and allowed his voice to ring out.
“Dog Emperor, if you don’t come out, don’t blame me for using my ultimate technique!”
“There’s a limit to my patience and I shall count from ten to one!”
“Good. I admire your courage. Wait here. I shall let you experience the horrors of dancing songs!”
“Come on out, Most Dazzling Folk Style!”
(T/N : Did a little bit of research, apparently Most Dazzling Folk Style was an annoying track played multiple times over year 2014. It’s like a Chinese Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up)
