Chapter 251: We Will Never Cheat!
Translator: Translation Nation Editor: Translation Nation
A sliver of blood splashed out from the gaping wound in the old man’s throat.
As a cultivator who had reached such a high cultivation level, he had no weaknesses in his physical body.
However, the Killer God’s Single Stroke wasn’t a technique just to cause damage.
A single stroke to vanquish souls and to severely cripple the soul!
A single stroke to end a life and to ensure a road of no return!
Despite the fact that Killer God was at level eight of the Infant Transformation Stage, Xu Que’s accumulated power along with the fact that he had upgraded the Killer God’s Single Stroke to its maximum meant that it was hard for the Killer God to survive such a devastating blow!
The old man’s body was thrown into the air like a kite which had it’s string snapped. After several moments of flight, he landed to the ground and crashed heavily, causing a crack on the floor.
This old Killer God, never moved after he landed.
The grounds were filled with utter silence.
Everyone watched on dazedly as their faces were filled with dread and disbelief.
The old and renowned Killer God died this way? To his own infamous sword technique?
Killer God Single’s Stroke… How did Xu Que learned how to execute that skill?
He was obviously of the Original Infant Stage, how could he master such a powerful sword technique?
The Water Empress was equally stumped by this. She had soared through the air in order to rescue Xu Que.
She never would’ve imagined that this kid was actually capable of the Killer God’s Single Stroke.
Aside from that, she never expected him to wield such immense power as well!
It was clearly someone else’s sword technique and yet he could do it much better than the creator himself. Why was that?
The Water Empress was extremely astonished and couldn’t comprehend this.
“Old thing! Don’t think that I can’t kill you just because your cultivation level is high. Let me tell you… Your Killer God’s Single Stroke is a pirated version and is such a poor imitation. Mine is the genuine and original version.”
He touched the blade in his hand as he started pointing at the corpse of Killer God while he cursed at him and laughed out.
At this point, he could hear the system notifications ringing out incessantly in his ear.
“Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 160 act tough points!”
“Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 210 act tough points!”
“Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 230 act tough points!”
“Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for killing a powerful elite Infant Transformation cultivator. The reward is 2,000,000 experience points!”
“Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for ascending in cultivation level. Your current realm is: Original Infant level nine!”
Eh? Powerful elite Infant Transformation cultivator?
When Xu Que heard this, he was stumped!
In the past, the system had always categorized the cultivators which he had killed according to their cultivation levels and rewarded him appropriately. The reward had always ignored their proficiency.
But now, it seems like the system recognized the old man as a powerful elite cultivator of the Infant Transformation stage!
The first Infant Transformation cultivator which Xu Que killed was the demon king, who was considered an average skilled Infant Transformation cultivator. Xu Que was rewarded with 1,000,000 experience points!
This time, he killed the Killer God who was at level eight of the Infant Transformation Stage and he earned 2,000,000 experience points. That was double and it allowed him to gain another level.
“Heheh! Indeed, you didn’t shortchange me. Looks like I have to kill higher leveled cultivators in future. I would be able to earn act tough points and increase my experience points quickly! Acting tough and gaining experience go hand in hand. These are the two things which would lead me to the top of the world and be the best person I can be…”
Xu Que felt joy in his heart and yet he knew deep down that the might of the Killer God’s Single Stroke was the reason he had succeeded. If he allowed a normal cultivator to use this skill, he would be peerless as well.
Additionally, when he executed the spell, it was filled with Glory along with the Soaring Dragons Nine Transformation and God of Hell’s Compulsion. All these added buffs accumulated together were the reason an Infant Transformation cultivator would lose his life to him.
However, this was rather unanticipated. If it weren’t for the fact that the old man was too complacent and cocky, Xu Que might not have done it so easily.
“Kekeke… you old thing! In order for you to die under the hands of the Act Tough King, you should consider it to be your glory and fortune. You should rest in peace knowing that it was I who killed you. Besides, I’ve already told you earlier. When it came to acting tough, it wasn’t something that anyone could do easily! There’s only one outcome for someone who isn’t qualified to act tough but still chose to act tough… That is to get fucked by the truly tough and truly cool Act Tough King! How does it feel to die to your own sword technique? Quickly jump up and give a speech or an eulogy! Ai… Forget it. Now that you’re dead, you decided not to speak? How disrespectful to me! This isn’t fun. I shan’t play with you any longer…”
Xu Que looked down at the old man’s corpse and shook his head. He then looked up towards the palace.
Several cultivators who were nearby heard Xu Que talking to the corpse and were all at a loss for words.
Big brother! Have you ever seen a corpse that can speak?
He’s already dead yet you still asked him to jump up and give an eulogy?
If he really did jump up, wouldn’t that mean that something was extremely off?
At this point, everything was silent within the throne room.
The officials and ministers all had terrified looks across their faces as their mouths hung low and none of them spoke a word.
They had witnessed how powerful and quick Xu Que was and how much he had improved from a few days ago. His ability and strength had grown at such a scary rate that it was almost unbelievable.
These officials and ministers were trembling in fear, not for the safety of the Fire Emperor, but for their own safeties.
Nobody dared to speak and step forward to give counsel to the Emperor because they didn’t know what advice to give to him. Should they ask him to go out and fight with the powerful Xu Que?
Of course they can’t tell him not to fight!
If they told him to hide or flee instead, wouldn’t the entire Fire Nation be perceived as weak?
It means that he truly has to go out and fight with Xu Que!
But doesn’t that mean… that the Emperor was walking into his own suicide?
When they looked at the Emperor’s face, they realized that it was pale. He had already slumped into his throne and his mind was completely blank.
The prestigious and infamous Tiansha’s Killer God had been defeated and it was by his own sword technique!
That made it extremely unbearable for the Fire Emperor to accept.
Because the person who had just killed the mighty Killer God is now coming for him!
“Quickly prepare the teleportation device! We need to get down into the Imperial Tomb. I wish to make a sacrifice!”
The Fire Emperor was trembling in fear as he snapped back to reality. He couldn’t take the suspense anymore and instructed the eunuch standing beside him.
“Yes… Yes… Old eunuch shall do it now!”
The eunuch was stammering while he too shook in fear. His face was white and filled with dread as he ran out of the throne room.
Xu Que’s eyes squinted as he hovered in mid air before laughing out, “Dog Emperor, the assassin you’ve sent isn’t good enough! Why would you hire such a useless and rubbish assassin? He’s not professional at all!”
“…” The crowd’s lips twitched in a snarl, their faces were filled with disbelief.
If the Tiansha’s Killer God wasn’t good enough, there wouldn’t be anyone in this world who was qualified to become an assassin!
The Fire Emperor’s face fell as well. He was so angry that he was shaking, but didn’t reply.
At this point, Xu Que hovered outside the palace as he continued shouting.
“Dog Emperor, when it comes to killing or assassination, you should hire Heavenly Explosion Faction! My sect have always been true to our word and would never cheat! How can we ever be like the useless group of ‘assassins’ you hired! Look, look, this old man here has decided to plant himself in the soil and won’t get up anymore. The eight cities you’ve promised to Tiansha has already been claimed by them. You have to remember to give them a poor evaluation score and feedback. Don’t be afraid that they would come back to you for revenge if you evaluate them poorly. If you’re afraid, you can hire the Heavenly Explosion Faction. We are prepared to defend the consumer’s right and enforce the law accordingly to merchants or stalls who do not uphold their end of the bargain…”
“But I really have nothing to say to you for being so foolish. You’ve spent such money for nothing! Actually, my Heavenly Explosion Faction can provide you with assassination services as well. And we can also provide you with the option of an unconditional refund for seven days. If you’re unsatisfied with our service, you can even give a feedback! Ai, my friend over here asked a fantastic question. Who should you look for if you need this service? That’s simple! You can find Ma Yun of the Heavenly Explosion Faction! Come, come, come, you can scan this QR code or add Lordofthecommonpeople on Wechat. Oh I’m sorry, you don’t know what a QR code is! Ai, all I wish to say is that, if something like this happens in the future, you should look for Heavenly Explosion Faction to settle this dispute for you.”
