Chapter 282: Hit Me If You Dare!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Swish! Swish! Swish!
More than a hundred iron needles glistening with light were hurled down from the sky towards the Elders of the various clans like torrential rain. Each needle was cloaked with Xu Que’s powerful strength. All of them managed to hit many Elders from various clans!
The needles would not kill anyone. But as this had been an unexpected move by Xu Que, the Elders had been unprepared and were unable to react in time. They were hit directly and were in severe pain!
“You shameless rascal, this was a sneak attack!”
“I’ll fight you!”
The Elders from various clans bellowed in anger and glared at Xu Que.
Xu Que smiled mischievously at them, and jumped into the entrance of the Sword Catacomb, carrying his ancient broadsword.
This move made the Elders and stare for they were unable to do anything to Xu Que. They could only continue to curse and swear at Xu Que!
Words like ‘insolent brat’, ‘shameless scoundrel’ and ‘come out if you got guts’ spewed from the mouths of the Elders, but that was about all they could do.
However, when Xu Que heard all these, he jumped outside again, appearing in front of the crowd again. He had a sneaky smile on his face. “How is it? I’m out now, come on, come and get me if you can!”
The crowd of cultivators was startled.
This fellow’s looking for death?
He actually dares to provoke the Elders further?
The few Infant Transformation Stage Elders were stunned for a moment and wasted no time in rushing towards Xu Que.
Xu Que retreated back into the entrance of the Sword Catacomb that was protected by the restrictive enchantment spell. He continued to annoy the Elders with his teasing. “Oh no, I’m inside again. Come, come get me, I’m waiting for a fight with all of you!”
The Elders was infuriated. “Rascal, come out again if you dare!” they bellowed.
“Okay, I’m out again!” Xu Que stepped out again!
This time, the Elders were prepared and used their techniques to attack Xu Que.
Xu Que had already anticipated their movements, and the moment right after he stepped out, he retreated again.
“I’m inside again!”
The attacks from the Elders blasted onto the restrictive spell and made an unusually loud sound. The Elders went ashen immediately, and they stepped a few steps back due to the heavy impact.
When someone attacked the restrictive enchantment spell, whether or not it was intentional, the enchantment would lock upon them and they would receive equivalent damage to their soul strength.
However, the Elders had also exercised caution as the attacks they had executed were only ordinary attacks. Hence, they had suffered only slight damages—but they did not dare to attack recklessly anymore.
On the other hand, Xu Que was becoming addicted to teasing the Elders. He was jumping in and out of the restriction at the entrance of the Sword Catacomb, constantly making jabs at the Elders and challenging them to attack him.
“Look, I’m out again! Didn’t you all want to teach me a lesson? Come quick! Don’t you have the guts to attack me?”
“Yo, I’m inside now!”
“Eh, I’m out again!”
“So is the fight still on? If not, I’m going in again?”
“I’m really going in now?”
The mouths of the crowd twitched, but nobody spoke. Only Xu Que’s provoking could be heard.
The Elders were so angry that they felt like spitting out blood. They couldn’t do anything to Xu Que at all. They simply closed their eyes—out of sight, out of mind!
When they heard Xu Que say goodbye to them, all of them heaved a sigh of relief. They thought, that asshole is finally gone!
Just as they thought the world was becoming peaceful again, Xu Que suddenly showed himself again at the entrance of the Sword Catacomb.
“Dang, dang, dang, dang! Surprise, I’m out again! Are all of you amazed?”
An Elder was just turning away to leave when suddenly Xu Que’s voice rang out. The Elder became flustered and didn’t notice what was behind him as he tried to turn back, and accidentally knocked into a stone wall.
The rest of them were so dismayed that they felt like vomiting blood anytime now.
Darn, are you done playing? they thought.
“Ai, the genius is indeed lonely! Since all of you are afraid to fight, then let’s forget it. I’m gone now!”
Xu Que puffed a sigh. This time he had gone inside the Sword Catacomb.
But as he turned and walked deeper in, everyone outside could hear his resonant singing:
“Being invincible is really, really lonely!”
“Being invincible is really, really empty!”
“Standing alone at the top, the cold winds…” His words were interrupted by the sound of coughing. “Sorry, my voice broke …”
Although the singing had disappeared, the whole area was still in silent mode.
Everyone was wearing an unpleasant expression, especially the Elders from the various clans. They were so annoyed that they seemed ready to blow up anytime like a barrel of gunpowder.
I’ve seen shameless people, but never before have I met someone so brazen!
Invincible and lonely, invincible and empty?
Then why don’t you just come out and fight?
All the Elders were of the Infant Transformation Stage, they were reputable and respectable Elders of their clans!
They were there to protect the talented geniuses and elites in their clans, but now… they were unable to stop even a scoundrel like Xu Que from entering the Sword Catacomb. They were full of regret!
If they had known earlier, they would not have worried so much and would have just attacked him directly. They wouldn’t have allowed themselves to be played by him like monkeys.
Toot, toot, toot!
At this moment, they heard noise coming from afar. Everyone was frightened and hastily turned back to look. When they saw a divine chariot that was made from the Spirit Treasures Pavilion, they heaved a sigh of relief. They had thought that another Lamborghini had appeared, like the one driven by Xu Que!
“Elder Qiu! Elder Qiu … Yue’er has something very important to report …”
“Third Grandpa! There’s a piece of wonderful news. Me and Sis Yue’er met a young prodigy! He has a divine chariot that is so much better than ours …”
Two young women donned in white hastily alighted from their divine chariot; both wearing cheerful and excited expressions on their faces. They were the two women that Xu Que had met earlier.
They headed straight towards Elder Qiu from Spirit Treasures Pavilion eagerly.
However, when Elder Qiu heard the words of the two young women, his eyelid immediately twitched. “The divine chariot that you speak of,” he began gloomily, “is it blue and around this tall? It didn’t need a Spirit Stone or inscription to power up and control, right?”
“Ah? Elder Qiu, you … how did you know?”
“Yue’er! The young man that you speak of, did he claim that he is Takumi Fujiwara from Exploding Heavens Faction?” Elder Qiu asked grimly. “Nicknamed Speed Star?”
“Eh … how did you know?” The young lady clothed in white asked in bewilderment. “Elder Qiu, you’ve met this young hero Fujiwara? Did he get here before us? The … Elder Qiu, did you manage to make him join our clan? It would be amazing if young hero Fujiwara could help fine-tune our divine chariots…”
“Get him to join us? That’s … ridiculous …”
“Why? Elder Qiu, the divine chariot of young hero Fujiwara …”
“Stop it! Give up such thoughts. The Spirit Treasures Pavilion will not accept this kind of person…”
The face of the Spirit Treasures Pavilion Elder darkened. If he were really to get Xu Que to join his clan, that would inevitably offend all the other clans out there.
At the same time, Xu Que had leisurely entered the Sword Catacomb. It was not that Xu Que couldn’t fight them, but more so that he didn’t want to waste too much time on doing that. The Elders could not threaten Xu Que at all, but Xu Que would need to spend time dealing with them, which could end up being rather time-consuming.
There were already 90 young elite cultivators inside the Sword Catacomb. He was worried that if he came in late, the Sword Spirit would be taken away by someone else.
As for the people outside, he could always deal with them later when he exited the Sword Catacomb…
Xu Que’s eyes formed a squint as he thought of that, and he continued walking.
Ahead was a long, dark path that seemed endless.
Cold winds plumed onto Xu Que unexpectedly, with a piercing chill that seemed to penetrate the bone.
Xu Que was rather stunned. Indeed entering the Sword Catacomb was not an easy feat, as even a gust of wind contained traces of sword will. This place is definitely ominous and dangerous! he thought.
“The Metal Nation must have chosen to build their Imperial Tombs opposite the Sword Catacomb to borrow the ominous geomancy characteristics in order to create the auspicious geomancy for their Imperial Tombs. This type of geomancy setup is quite brilliant!”
Xu Que had inherited Hu Ba Yi and Zhang Qi Ling’s professional knowledge and memories. That was why he had been able to discern the geomancy setup of the place, muttering to himself while advancing deeper.
Not long after, Xu Que reached the centre of the tunnel. He suddenly halted and stopped advancing.
“Something’s not quite right,” Xu Que said as he narrowed his eyes suspiciously. “The Sword Catacomb’s tunnel is so long. Aren’t there supposed to be restrictive enchantments or traps?”
He carefully examined the area by touching the surrounding walls. The walls were wet and soft, as if he were touching a piece of meat!
“Damn it, what the hell is this thing?” Xu Que was taken aback!
