Chapter 253: Would You Like To Act Tough With Me?
Translator: Translation Nation Editor: Translation Nation
The Fire Emperor who was fleeing towards the back of the palace along with his officials and generals could hear Xu Que singing from afar. When he heard this, even his nose turned crooked in anger and his heart was hammering in his chest. He knew that his reputation was thoroughly tarnished at this point.
A devilish song with such lyrics would certainly spread across the entire city rapidly!
No! Across the entire Fire Nation!
No! Across the entire five nations!
At this point, the Fire Emperor was truly enraged. He wanted to ignore everything else in this world and rush out to fight with this dog Xu Que to the death.
Endure! Hold it in!
Remaining alive and surviving was the most important thing. Even if he was so angry that his heart was about to explode, he had to endure!
He hastened his footsteps as he led the group of ministers and officials towards the sacred grounds.
The Imperial Guards didn’t know that the Fire Emperor was fleeing away with his important officials. However, after hearing Xu Que’s song, they turned around to look at the now empty palace before fleeing in apanic.
The Fire Emperor has fled with the ministers and officials?
Damn it! This Dog Emperor is really inhumane! We were so willing to die for him and yet when it came to such a critical moment, he didn’t take us with him?
He really wants us to sacrifice and die here for him!
No, we cannot be humiliated this way. We have to fight to live!
At this point, an entire group of Imperial Guards turned around and started shouting out in fear.
“Lord Prince Consort! Please have mercy! We surrender!”
“We shall give you our support! We wouldn’t want to serve the Fire Emperor anymore since he treats our lives with such impunity!”
“Is the Heavenly Explosion Faction still recruiting? We are willing to join as guards to protect important members!”
An entire group of Imperial Guards had been swayed by his song and started shouting out towards him.
The group of people standing outside the Imperial Palace were all stumped. They had thought that when the guards charged towards Xu Que, they were all out for blood and wanted to kill him. Nobody expected that they would surrender to him.
There was absolutely no other way for these Imperial Guards. To make an enemy out Duan Jiu De was honestly worse than death. At the same time, they couldn’t figure out how the Emperor could be so thick skinned. He had been humiliated to such an extent but still fought so hard to live! If this was any other normal person, he would’ve surrendered himself to death and finished this conflict once and for all.
“Scram, scram, scram! I can’t even be bothered to kill you now. What do you take the Heavenly Explosion Faction as? Do you think we just accept any random person? You guys won’t even be fit to wash our toilets! Just get out of my way and hinder me no longer. A good dog doesn’t obstruct the roads. That dog Emperor, where is he running to?” Xu Que acted as if he didn’t care about the Imperial Guards at all. He then retrieved his guitar and kept it with him.
“He must’ve gone to the sacred grounds within the Imperial Palace. That’s the single place in the entire palace which has the strongest fortifications!” One of the Imperial Guards exclaimed.
“Sacred grounds in the Imperial Palace?” Xu Que raised his brows and replied.
When the crowd heard this, they were all astonished as well.
The Imperial Palace’s sacred grounds was a forbidden location built by the very first Fire Emperor. He had invited the most powerful cultivators around to assist him with the powerful spells placed within it. Only people with the blood of the Imperial family were able to activate the entrance. Apart from the Imperial family, nobody else would be able to break through the spell!
“Xu Que, that’s enough. Let’s end it here! You can never enter the sacred grounds!” The Water Empress’ lips moved gently as she communicated with Xu Que through a voice in his head.
Xu Que’s eyes turned towards the Water Empress as he smiled, “But it’s only several small spells. How do you know that I wouldn’t be able to break through it? Should we bet on that? If you lose, you have to eat what’s below! (If you lose, I will cook noodles for you!)”
The Water Empress ignored Xu Que as she shook her head and replied, “The sacred grounds within the Imperial Palace is far from ordinary and very similar to the powerful spells of the tombs. Using spells to break through is impossible. Only someone with the blood of the Imperial family flowing beneath their veins would be able to enter. Either that, or physical strength is needed to dig through!”
Physical strength to dig through?
As soon as Xu Que heard this, he was elated!
Another place which could be burrowed through? Isn’t that too easy?
Xu Que called out to the system in his head, “System, would I get a discount for renting 10 excavators?”
The system replied coldly, “Nope.”
“Wow! Aren’t you too sly? I won’t even use the excavators for a day. You charge me 500 act tough points for a 24 hour rental. Then if I rent it for only two hours, can you charge me 10 act tough points?”
“The two hour charge is 50 act tough points!”
“Fuck me! You crafty cheat! Were you taught math by your physical education teacher? 500 act tough points for 24 hours, wouldn’t that be 41.666666 act tough points for two hours? Even if you wished to round off the figure, it would only be 42 act tough points!”
“The two hour charge is 50 act tough points!”
“Alright, great, fantastic. You scam! 50 act tough points, huh? Then I shall rent 10 excavators for 2 hours! 500 act tough points! You can add that sum to the outstanding loan!” Xu Que was extremely furious that he strengthened his resolve that he was never going to pay this amount back!
“There’s no need for you to look so angry. Your objective was to make a fool out of the Fire Emperor. It seems like you’ve achieved that goal in front of everyone here! As for revenge, I am certain that there would be more opportunities for you to do so in the future!” the Water Empress noticed that Xu Que looked extremely upset and assumed that he looked this way because he was unable to break through the spells of the sacred grounds. She thus communicated with him once more to console him.
She thought very highly of this budding cultivator, Xu Que. She knew that if she could recruit him to join the Sky Incense Valley, he could certainly rise to a very high rank!
When Xu Que heard this, he shook his head, “Since I have yet to achieve my revenge, I shall have it! As for these mere protective spells, they can’t hold me back! Little miss, do you know how to operate an excavator?”
“Ah?” The Water Empress was stumped.
Excavator? What is that?
She shook her head, not minding the strange things Xu Que was saying as she laughed, “I have never heard of such an item.”
“That’s fine. I shall teach you! Using the excavator can be very fun!” Xu Que smiled as he spoke.
“…” The Water Empress looked up, rather intrigued and interested.
Xu Que didn’t speak further as he retracted his pair of black wings.
With a whoosh, his body shot back down towards the ground.
Soon after, he retrieved a single excavator from the system inventory and allowed it to land heavily on the ground beside him!
The earth beneath the excavator cracked as rocks and debris were thrown up.
“Yo, my apologies. That was too much power!” Xu Que smiled at the Water Empress as he spoke.
The entire crowd raised their eyebrows as their eyes were opened wide in shock and astonishment.
“What weapon is this?”
“It’s shape looks so strange. Could this be a powerful killer weapon from Heavenly Explosion Faction?”
“Could he be thinking of using this weapon to break through the sacred grounds of the Imperial Palace? Impossible! Be it a weapon or spells, it would be impossible to penetrate the thick defenses of that place!”
“Looks like he’s trying to see if the rumors about the sacred grounds are true!”
“I dare to bet that this weapon wouldn’t be effective despite its formidable appearance. After all, the spells of the sacred grounds were conjured by the very first Fire Emperor.”
“That’s right. Cultivators of those era were much powerful than the cultivators now!”
Everyone shook their heads in unison.
The Water Empress was astonished as well and extremely curious. She looked at the weapon which had been summoned by Xu Que.
“That’s an excavator? Is that a weapon?” The Water Empress then looked towards Xu Que and asked gently, her eyes emitting a curious look as she became more interested.
Xu Que waved his hands as he exclaimed proudly, “You’re wrong. This isn’t just a weapon. It’s a Godly Weapon!”
“Godly Weapon? That can’t be… There isn’t any spiritual power flowing in this weapon.” The Water Empress shook her head, her brows were knitted as she spoke.
“Yo don’t believe me? Just you wait!” Xu Que then stepped up onto the excavator and sat in the seat as he started operating it!
The excavator was activated and made loud whirring sounds.
The motor of the excavator ramped up as its arm started moving and vibrating loudly, moving towards the walls of the palace!
“Boom doom!” A loud sound rang out as the walls of the Imperial Palace collapsed.
Stone and debris flew in all places.
Indeed, Xu Que had operated the arm of the machine to dig through the walls of the palace, clearing a passageway ahead for him!
The crowd were all stumped by this. They opened their mouths wide in disbelief!
This… This is way too powerful!
It doesn’t even need a core energy to be used yet it’s so powerful!
The Water Empress blinked in shock as her eyes gleamed with excitement.
“Chiya chiya chiya…”
Xu Que operated the excavator as he dug through the concrete walls. He then drove the excavator towards the Water empress as he slapped the empty seat beside him, “Fair little lady, your skin is so soft and smooth, would you like to act tough together with me?”
