Chapter 266: End of Enmity
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Under the strength of a united people, countless people had now been completely awakened. The loss of faith from the majority of people caused the Fire Emperor’s power to decline further!
But the reason why he had spat out blood was due to anger.
Originally, the Fire Emperor had not been worried about Xu Que inciting the people to turn against him.
However, with the shouting of the Declaration of Independence, coupled with Xu Que’s singing, there were more and more people going against the Emperor for freedom and independence!
The Fire Emperor could not withstand the sudden changes and had become too infuriated. In addition to his power dissipating, he had now sustained internal injuries as well.
The power of the Empress had always been mysterious. She was in a slightly disadvantageous position against the Fire Emperor, who had the blessing of the Fire God due to the peoples’ ritual, but the Fire Emperor had never had any chance to get close to Xu Que.
Xu Que may have been the main contributor to the Fire Emperor’s heavy injuries. However, the Water Empress’s skills and magic had played an important part as well!
This woman was definitely very powerful!
“Hong Yan, you bitch, you’re actually helping this bastard and pitting yourself against me?” the Fire Emperor roared at the Water Empress, glaring at her with a hideous face. “You’re not afraid this will cause a dispute between the two countries? What do you have to gain?”
The Water Empress frowned slightly, shook her head and did not say a word!
From her point of view, the Fire Emperor had gone mad. He no longer had the aura of an emperor and was similar to a dog that had lost its home.
“Dog Emperor, you are the one who said to me that it’s a jungle out there. You should have thought of karma when you did all those bad things to me! I waited for a year for a chance to prove that I would take back what I had lost, not to prove how awesome I am! So, your end is here!”
As Xu Que roared, he was excited by the deep memories coming from within his soul—the exhilaration of vengeance.
If ordinary cultivators had encountered this situation, they would have tried their best to suppress these feelings, as these were what the cultivators meant by the heart demon which would haunt them as they continued their cultivation.
But Xu Que wasn’t worried about that. He wanted to be carefree. If there were scores to be settled, he would settle them on the spot—if once was not enough then he would take revenge the second time!
He let loose his flames of revenge so that the grudges and resentment of the original owner of this body could be released and liberated.
Only with the death of the Fire Emperor would the last wisp of resentment rest in peace!
By now the blessing of the Fire God on the Fire Emperor had been weakened so much that it was essentially nothing, but it seemed to have been replaced by the Fire Emperor’s murderous intent.
“Little bastard, you shall accompany me to die together!” he growled like a wild beast. His body suddenly swelled up, and his mouth, nose and eyes burst into flames.
Boom! Another explosion was heard and the whole body of the Fire Emperor was covered in flames.
Majestic pressure covered the whole sky, as if the fire had come from the Ninth Heaven itself, vowing to destroy everything.
“Be careful!” the Water Empress reminded Xu Que, looking grim. At the same time, the tip of her delicate finger glowed with glistening light. She pointed towards the sky and swiped her hand through the air!
A huge river appeared out of thin air, dancing through the sky like an enormous fragment of flowing ribbon. The Water Empress led it directly to the Fire Emperor!
Xu Que looked on, stunned for a while. “Little miss, you sure have a lot of water!” he exclaimed.
At the same time, he replaced his sharp sword with the Heavy Buster Sword, and executed the Soaring Dragon’s Nine Transformation. He also activated the power of the Sword of the Occult, which was the killing sword that had been maxed out in kills. Wielding his immense powers, he dashed towards the Fire Emperor.
The emptiness was shaken and distorted by the force of the impact.
“Brave the wrath of the Fire Emperor!”
“Forward, on …”
At that instant, the song that the system was automatically managing had come to an end, hitting several high notes.
The music still lingered in the minds of the whole crowd as they witnessed the magnificent scene in front of them. They had been shaken awake and hot blood was surging through them.
“Kill the Fire Emperor, liberate the Fire Nation!”
The whole crowd raised their fists high up and yelled, their voices resounding everywhere.
Whatever was left of the blessings of the Fire God were gone at that very moment. The Fire Emperor had lost the people’s faith; he was back to square one!
However, he had already called upon the horrific supernatural power of the gods by sacrificing himself with the fusion of his body with fire. He was darting through the void and wanting to pounce on Xu Que, determined to die together with him!
“Heheh … little bastard, no one can save you today.”
With a savage and angry laughter, the Fire Emperor broke through the giant river that the Water Empress had conjured. The flames on his body did not extinguish, and he continued flying towards Xu Que.
“No, he wants to die together with you!”
The Water Empress wore an expression of shock—she had not expected the Fire Emperor to be mad enough to sacrifice himself for the purpose of killing Xu Que.
Just then, a shadow went past her, directly flying towards the Fire Emperor.
“You fool, just that bit of a fire and you think you can destroy me?” Xu Que curled his lips in a sneer. “Go to hell!”
Boom! Another loud sound was heard, the Dark Heavy Buster Sword he was holding had multiplied itself into countless shadows that spread over the sky and earth.
He made a leap and executed the Flame Devouring Wave. All the shadows gradually became one, forming a terrifying blast that went directly towards the Fire Emperor.
In an instant, the flames on the Fire Emperor were split open. Even his body had been split open!
But then Xu Que noticed something amiss, spat a loud “fuck!” and turned into a trail of willow leaves, disappearing on the spot.
Just as Xu Que disappeared, the Fire Emperor who had been split in half started to merge at that instant as well, and with overwhelming flames, he pierced through the exact spot where Xu Que had been standing a moment earlier!
The Water Empress stared at the scene with large eyes. This fellow … when did you steal my Sky Incense Valley’s Dark Willow Limbo skill?
But she was also relieved that Xu Que had escaped the Fire Emperor’s fatal blow, for there was no longer any danger.
This was because the Fire Emperor… had reached his limit!
The Fire Emperor was stagnant in the air, stiff and pale.
The flames on his body were slowly swallowing him. Endless pain enveloped him.
He knew very well that the fatal blow he had used on Xu Que, which had missed—had been made in exchange for his life. He had no other means left to deal with Xu Que. He was doomed for death either way.
He had not expected Xu Que to be able to escape his fatal blow by using Sky Incense Valley’s ultimate escape skill—Dark Willow Limbo. The failure of his fatal blow had meant he had completely failed to kill Xu Que!
Just then, a voice was heard behind him.
The Fire Emperor looked slightly terrified. This was his resentment and fear just before his imminent death.
He was familiar with the sword’s ferocity and aura. It was the Killer God’s Single Stroke!
At present, only one person could execute the move—Xu Que!
“No, Xu Que, stop!”
Almost at the same time, a cry was heard from afar.
It was the Flaming Sun Princess and Zi Xuan who had rushed over and seen the scene.
However, Xu Que did not stop or change his attack. His eyes were cold and without any hesitation, he executed Killer God’s Single Stroke to the fullest.
Swish! A sound slicing through the air was heard, with a bright gleam of light emitting from the blade. It instantly cut the Fire Emperor through the throat!
A sword seized the soul; a sword took away a life!
Even a Level Eight Infant Transformation Stage cultivator had died from that stroke, let alone the Fire Emperor, who was going to die anyway!
Xu Que had wanted to personally end this enemy’s life so that the resentment and anger deep within his soul could rest and dissipate!
Of course, the most important thing was the blood of the Ji family within the Fire Emperor!
“System, extract his blood, don’t be found out!” Xu Que instructed.
The system was able to extract the blood of the Fire Emperor without anyone knowing. It was only too easy for the system. However, Xu Que had also been extorted by the system in that he had been made to pay 100 Acting Tough Points before it would perform the job.
Xu Que was not that heartbroken over the 100 Acting Tough Points to obtain the blood of the Ji Family. He looked on coldly as the body of the Fire Emperor fell.
The Fire Emperor, whose life had been ended, was unable to control the fire on his body and was now completely engulfed in flames. His body was like the setting sun, and fell straight towards the Imperial Palace!
