Chapter 270: Who’s the Country Bumpkin

Xu Que stood there bewildered and unmoving at the sight of the bizarre-looking vehicle that was coming straight in his direction.
The vehicle was too peculiar-looking. It had an exterior that was similar to the retro sedan on Earth, being draped in metal with four metallic wheels underneath.
However, gold was the metal that had been used to make the vehicle. It was a car made out of gold and when one looked carefully, it was completely covered in written inscriptions. A huge slab of spirit stone was the energy source for the car.
The principle of construction was similar to Xu Que’s God Powered Cannon, whereby both creations required the use of spirit stones as their source of power.
However, judging from the looks of the vehicle, it did not seem to be fully automatic—it required the driver to control it through enchantments, just like how flying swords were controlled.
Nonetheless, just that alone was enough to astound Xu Que.
The five nations were rather far apart from each other. The Fire Nation and the Water Nation were considered relatively close. But the Metal Nation was separated from the Fire Nation by a huge boundary. If one did not use a teleportation device, one would need at least a six months’ journey to reach the Metal Nation.
Therefore, Xu Que remembered nothing of the Metal Nation except its name.
Of course, Xu Que had also occasionally heard that cultivators in the Metal Nation were not focused on cultivating and liked to rely on objects. Even the Equipment Refiners were not doing what they should have been doing but instead invented and researched diabolic things, or engaged in wicked craft.
From what Xu Que had seen, the Metal Nation was perhaps the most scientifically conscious of the five nations. It was no wonder that Metal Nation was the biggest enemy of the Fire Nation!
“Young man, move away!”
The sudden screams of the women in the car were heard. They seemed to have difficulty braking the car and could only shout. The car was moving in such great speed, rushing towards Xu Que.
However, Xu Que was still engrossed in looking at the vehicle that he did not seem to have heard the screams of the women.
A loud sound was heard, followed by the screams of the two women. The car had directly hit Xu Que!
But in reality, the scene of the accident was rather peaceful.
The strange car had stopped moving the moment it hit Xu Que, and he was not sent flying by the car and nor was he hurt. However, the front of the car had wrapped around his body—or rather, he had created a very deep dent.
Looking at the extent of the dent, the car would have to be sent for scrapping!
“Hmm, seems like the car only has a decent shape but without a brake system!” Xu Que shook his head, wearing disappointed expression.
The two women, however, were in a daze, and only reacted after a while.
One of them screamed and exited the car angrily. She stared at Xu Que in anger, “You … you need to compensate me for my divine chariot!”
Xu Que’s eyes were wide opened and he nearly burst into laughter upon hearing that.
This lousy thing is called a divine chariot? he thought.
Xu Que shook his head. “Hey girl, can we please speak reasonably? Your car obviously hit me. Why should I be the one who compensate you? I wasn’t even playing hooligan, yet you still want to extort me? If I don’t agree, are you going to take out a watermelon knife and cut me up into several pieces? May I know if your dad is called Li Gang?”
The young woman became agitated. “You … you’re the one who suddenly appeared out of nowhere! You made me forget the enchantment to stop my divine chariot, so that’s how …”
“This lousy thing is controlled through inscriptions?” Xu Que young woman, his curiosity piquing.
Immediately, the young woman’s attitude changed to one of great disdain upon hearing Xu Que’s words. “Hmph, country bumpkin, you don’t even recognize the divine chariot. I don’t care, you crashed into my divine chariot, therefore you must compensate me!”
“Ha, so it’s reasonable to hit people and then ask for compensation? All right then, take out your driver’s license!”
“What driver’s license?”
“Holy crap, driving without a license?” Xu Que raised his eyebrows. “According to the People’s Republic of Exploding Heaven Nation Road Safety Law number 99 stipulates that driving without a license will land you a fine of between 200 spirit stones to 2000 spirit stones, along with 15 days in detention.”
“You … you’re trying to extort us?”
The young woman did not exactly understand what Xu Que was talking about. But upon hearing him mention the spirit stones and the fine amount, she had become infuriated.
“Didn’t you want to play hooligan? Fine, this Act Tough King will play with you. Otherwise, female drivers like yourself will really treat the road like your own backyard.”
After finishing his sentence, Xu Que took a few steps back and lay on the ground, crying out loud, “aiya, I’m hit! A female driver hit me, I’m dying, where is my justice!”
“You … you’re spouting nonsense!” the young woman stammered in anger. She had never met such a shameless person. “You’re obviously the one who hit us!”
“My legs are the so-called ‘Divine Legs’,” shouted Xu Que. “Look at my poor legs now after getting hit by your lousy car, if you don’t compensate me tens of millions of spirit stones for my medical expenses, I won’t let this matter rest.”
“Country bumpkin!” said the young woman angrily. “My car is called the divine chariot, it isn’t a lousy car! It’s your bad luck that you got hit by the divine chariot, understand?”
“Who’s the country bumpkin?” Xu Que was unhappy at what the young woman had said. He stood up from the ground, tidied his hairstyle and pointed at his own face menacingly. “Big sister, open your eyes big and wide and take a good look. Yes! This is a handsome face, you need to look carefully and notice the way I dress. You see, everywhere I go, people say that I’m suave, and flowers blossom when I pass by. You look young and pretty but how are you so blind? And as for your piece of crap car, I can easily get one that’s way better than yours!”
“Piece of crap? You dare say that the divine chariot from our Spirit Treasures Pavilion is a piece of crap?”
The young woman stared at Xu Que in disbelief, as if she heard something unimaginable.
The other woman was not able to stand Xu Que’s taunting. She exitedthe car and walked over. “Hmph, what an arrogant boy,” she said with an icy tone. “Did you know that in the whole of the Metal Nation, at least half of our divine chariots are created by the Spirit Treasures Pavilion? The divine chariot that you smashed is the latest creation made by our Grand Elder, and it is called the Thousand Miles Chaser. You actually have the audacity to claim that you have stronger models than that?”
“Ha, Thousand Miles Chaser?” Xu Que laughed out loud, his face full of clear disdain. “What kind of lousy name is that? It’s too low-level for my taste. It totally can’t be compared to the quality of the divine chariots of Exploding Heaven divine chariot!”
“Exploding Heaven Faction?”
The two young women were puzzled at the mention of that.
Apparently, news of what had happened at the Imperial Palace in theFire Nation had not yet spread to the Metal Nation. Both young women had not heard of that name.
“I don’t care where you’re from,” one of the young women spoke coldly “First you smashed my Divine Chariot, then you insult our Spirit Treasures Pavilion. You owe us an apology!”
“Correct! Our divine chariots from Spirit Treasures Pavilion are some of the best in Metal Nation,” said the other young woman angrily. “You dare to speak with such impudence before us—you need to apologize or else!”
Xu Que squinted and sniggered, shaking his head. “You’re both young but your tempers sure aren’t mild! I’m just telling the truth that there really isn’t anything great about your Spirit Treasures Pavilion. The divine chariots that are created by Exploding Heaven Faction are the real treasures. Uh uh, don’t feel wronged. Let me ask the both of you—have you ever heard of Bao Ma and Mercedes Benz? Lamborghini, Bugatti, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Maserati? See, you’ve never even heard of these and yet you’ve got the nerve to flaunt your Spirit Treasures Pavilion? Aren’t you ashamed of yourselves?”
Both young women were baffled and confused by what Xu Que was saying. Indeed, they had never heard of any of those names … oh not really, there was one they had heard before—Bao Ma, which was Chinese for BMW.
Bao Ma in Chinese meant Precious Horse. In ancient times, the term Bao Ma was frequently used to describe good quality horses.
Both women wore contemptuous smiles. “Who’s using a real horse nowadays?” she said. “We’re all using divine chariots!”
“Ha, the Bao Ma I mentioned was not referring to an actual horse, but one type of divine chariots in Exploding Heaven Faction. Forget it, you won’t understand anyway. The frog in the well knows nothing of the great ocean. I’ll be merciful and let you two frogs know what constitutes a good divine chariot! Come out, my bikini… bleh! No, my Lamborghini!”
Xu Que called out the system interface and rented a Lamborghini sports car without hesitation.
Fortunately, the system store was reasonable in this aspect. Be it an excavator or any type of luxury car, vehicles could be rented at a uniform price of 500 Acting Tough Points for a one-day rental!
Xu Que did all this was totally because he wanted to act tough!
Damn ignorant fools! he thought. These people from Metal Nation have the gall to call their lousy cars ‘divine chariots’? I’m laughing my ass off! And they dare call me a country bumpkin? If that’s the case, I need you both to have a good look at what a real cool sports car is like!
A bright white light flashed past, and a luxurious Lamborghini immediately appeared in front of the two women.
Both were instantly dumbfounded by that sight!
Clearly, the sleek and graceful shape of the sports car was enough to impress them instantly.
The curves of the car that could satisfy someone with just one look, the exquisite and fine coating of paint—just the appearance alone was enough to blow them away.
Their so-called divine chariot was nothing compared to the luxury car.
