Chapter 257: The Wall Is Falling!
Translator: Translation Nation Editor: Translation Nation
The deeper they dug, the more soil was scattered all around.
The Fire Emperor who was behind the wall was shaking in fear as defensive killing intent permeated in the air around him.
However, since Xu Que’s soul strength was so powerful, he effortlessly deflected the killing intent back at him. In fact, he even added his own strength and directed it at the group of officials.
He then shouted out, “You group of handicapped imbeciles! You’re still helping the dog Emperor? When I finally lay my hands on you, I will hang you up on the city wall and whip your little penis a hundred times!”
All the officials and ministers paused in shock. They knew that Xu Que was capable of doing something like this and could even imagine him doing that.
All of them placed their hands over their crotches as they winced in pain.
The group of eunuchs all shot them an irritated look.
What the hell is wrong with you? Why are you looking at us like that? Just because you don’t have a penis…
However, this group of officials all knew that they were already on the path of no return. They were already stuck in this place and couldn’t run even if they wanted to. Besides, who would dare to offend the Fire Emperor here? Hence, they looked down and concentrated on their task.
Before long, the altar was becoming taller and taller from stacking up the boulders. It was gradually reaching completion and will be done at any moment.
Xu Que was rather anxious as well. Without the blood of the Fire Emperor, how was he going to pluck the Genesis Fire Herbs?
“Everyone. work harder! We cannot let the dog Emperor escape! If he does, I have to enter the Imperial Tomb once again. It’s too much trouble. Let’s take this digging exercise as your final examination. Once this is done, I shall issue a report card for each one of you. Once you’ve graduated, you can take this report card… and find a good job…” Xu Que started encouraging everyone.
At the same time, he called out for the system. After all, at this speed, it was apparent that he wouldn’t make it and thus needed additional help.
“System, is there anything you can do to prevent them from leaving?”
“Ding! The host can purchase ‘Air Sealing Spell’ and place it over the Sacred Grounds. This will cause the teleportation device to fail. A single use would cost 10,000 act tough points. However, upon further detection, the system realized that Xu Que has exceeded his credit limit and thus is unable to purchase it.”
“Fuck me! A single use costs 10,000 act tough points? Is there any other way?” Xu Que jumped up in shock. Just a single Air Sealing Spell was so expensive.
He had acted tough for an entire day and only managed to acquire 4,000 act tough points. Added to his existing credit limit, he still wouldn’t have enough to purchase it!
Of course, even if he did have enough, he wouldn’t buy it. It was way too expensive!
“Ding! There are many ways. If the enemy didn’t destroy their teleportation device after use, the system suggests that the host should purchase several high grade spirit stones and activate the same teleportation device to chase after them! If the enemy destroys their teleportation device, the system suggests that the host purchase a Divine Tracking Emblem and chase after them.” The system rang out.
Xu Que smiled.
Damn it! Why didn’t I think of this method?
Even if the dog Emperor managed to flee, I could use the same teleportation device to follow them. Fuck me!
And even if their teleportation device was destroyed, I can create my own teleportation device! After all, I know that they’re heading towards the imperial tomb as well!
“I guess it’s true that simple ideas often eludes geniuses. My extremely high intelligence is to be blamed for this oversight!” Xu Que shook his head helplessly.
At this point, he looked into the Sacred Grounds and saw that the teleportation device was very close to completion and its progress was frighteningly fast!
The Fire Emperor and all the officials were starting to calm down and didn’t appear as anxious as before.
“Little bastard… When I’ve completed my sacrifice ritual, your life is mine!” The Fire Emperor glared at Xu Que as he threatened him.
Xu Que had already thought of a way to chase after the Fire Emperor and thus was no longer anxious.
He folded his arms and laughed coldly, “Damned retard! You shall be crying later on. I shall remember to capture your spirit and have you join your eighteen generations of ancestors and make you dance together!”
“Hmph! The young calf is unafraid of the tiger. Wait for your impending doom!”
“Wait for your mum!”
“Outrage your mum!”
“Damn it, I want…”
“I want your mum!”
People on both sides were working extremely hard while Xu Que and the Fire Emperor engaged in bouts of slander and curses.
Everyone watched on in shock.
Still, it was apparent to everyone that when it came to quarreling, he wasn’t a match for Xu Que. Nobody in this world was a match for him when it came to quarrelling.
Xu Que’s expression was extremely calm and relaxed. No matter what the Fire Emperor said, he would just repeat the same curse and add “your mum” to it. It was clear that Xu Que was only acting unaffected in order to antagonize the Fire Emperor further.
“Report to your majesty. The teleportation device has been completed. We can leave now!” At this point, an old eunuch fell to his knees as he exclaimed to the Fire Emperor.
The Fire Emperor shot Xu Que a glance as he patted his sleeves and shouted out, “Everyone, let’s head to the Imperial Tomb and make a sacrifice to the Fire God!”
The officials and ministers acknowledged unanimously.
Soon after, a group of people soared into the air as they moved towards the teleportation device.
Xu Que wasn’t the least anxious as he eyed them coldly, his lips parted to reveal a grin.
Dog Emperor, go on then, go on then. It’s easier for me to draw your blood in the Imperial Tomb. I shall then be able to draw out the Dragon Veins. It saves me the time of dragging you there anyway!
At this point, the Fire Emperor slapped the entire altar, causing it to glow brightly.
The inscriptions in the altar were buzzing with bright light and energy.
Soon after, the air around the altar started twisting and convulating as the altar itself started rotating rapidly.
The bodies of the Fire Emperor and his group of officials started becoming blur.
At the same time, the Fire Emperor shouted at the few eunuchs who haven’t left, “When I’ve departed from here, destroy the teleportation device. Failure to do so will ensure that my wrath will be brought down upon nine generations of your families!”
“Yes!” These eunuchs all fell to their knees and acknowledged while trembling in fear.
Outside the Sacred Grounds, the Water Empress was extremely quiet as she looked at Xu Que and spoke into his mind, “We’re not going to make it in time. If the teleportation device was really destroyed, what would you do?”
Heading towards the Imperial Tomb from here would require several hours at the very least. In that time, the Fire Emperor would’ve completed his sacrifice ritual to the Fire God.
From the Water Empress’ perspective, she assumed that once the Fire Emperor has escaped, Xu Que would surely lose.
After all, as the Water Empress of the Water Nation, she understood the powers of the sacrifice ritual to the Gods as a final resort. It was powerful beyond comprehension. As long as the Fire Emperor was allowed to complete the ritual, the assistance of the Fire God would be on his side. His powers would increase tremendously and the fortune of the Fire Nation will rise as well.
Even if Xu Que was on the Void Refining Stage, he would still be slaughtered by the Fire Emperor. When that happens, even she wouldn’t be able to help him.
Right at this moment, the best thing to do was to take advantage of the fact that the Fire Emperor was going to be gone for some time and escape the city… No! Escape the Fire Nation. The further, the better. For only then would there be a chance of survival.
However, Xu Que wasn’t the least afraid or flustered. He had a plan and he knew how to get to the Fire Emperor. Besides, even if he couldn’t catch up to the Fire Emperor, the sacrifice ritual would definitely fail. That’s because Madam Ya was…
“Keke… That’s alright. Continue digging for now. I shall show you how I act tough later on!” Xu Que shook his head and laughed out heartily.
A loud sound rang out as the Fire Emperor and his group of officials vanished. At the same time, the angered laughter of the Fire Emperor could be heard, “Hahahahahaha! Little bastard, when I return, you are dead meat!”
“You still want to return? I’m sorry but you have no way of returning. The only way for you is down under, where you shall be buried!” Xu Que replied coldly.
The white screen of light surrounding the Sacred Grounds flickered before it became dim. A second later, thousands of cracks started forming all across the wall!
“We have succeeded! The wall is coming down!” One of the cultivators operating the excavator exclaimed.
