Chapter 352: Car Show Model Xu Que
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The Empress Dowager immediately locked her sights on Xu Que after hearing what the eunuch had said!
It could not be helped—his AE86 was too conspicuous. Almost everyone was focusing their attention on him and his AE86. Even if the eunuch had not said a word, the Empress Dowager would have noticed him anyway!
But as the eunuch had communicated to her via Soul Strength that Xu Que had been the one who had kidnapped him, a sudden trace of contemplative amusement flashed in the Empress Dowager’s eyes. She looked at Xu Que calmly without saying another word!
Ding! “Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 230 Acting Tough Points!”
Ding! “Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 260 Acting Tough Points!”
At the same time, several notifications rang inside Xu Que’s head!
The rental costs of an AE86 were instantly recovered. He also received additional bonuses that made him feel very satisfied!
He was full of confidence and welcomed the attention with a smile!
At that moment, he was the most dazzling star on the stage.
Only the other geniuses and elites did not appear to be impressed by Xu Que’s AE86!
Chariot King Zhang wore an indifferent expression, eyes filled with disdain and mockery. He shook his head and snorted. “Those are just some flashy tactics. I’m going to make sure he’ll lose face later on!”
Ghost of the Divine Chariot, Qi Yun Fei, did not view Xu Que as a strong opponent either. “Winning this round depends on Soul Strength and one’s control of the divine chariot via spiritual enchantments,” said Qi Yun Fei nonchalantly. “The one who laughs last will be the real winner!”
Gao Qiao Jie, the Number One Genius from Spirit Treasures Pavilion gave a calm laugh after a few glances at the AE86.
Someone asked him why he had laughed. “This divine chariot only has a nice appearance,” said Gao Qiao Jie, shaking his head. “The materials used are very ordinary and it would be unable to withstand a hit from the divine chariots of Spirit Treasures Pavilion!”
“But there are rumors that Xu Que’s divine chariot has the ability of transformation,” said someone seriously. “Although this is not the rumored yellow divine chariot, it is very likely that it is able to transform as well!”
Gao Qiao Jie replied coolly, “so what if it can transform? Don’t forget that this is a Divine Chariot Contest. If he transforms his divine chariot, that will be tantamount to cheating and no different from riding on a flying sword or something else just as ludicrous!”
“That makes sense! Looks like there’s no need to worry about him,” someone sniggered. “If I encounter him later, I’ll definitely smash his divine chariot!”
At this moment, the Emperor of the Metal Nation turned slightly to the old eunuch beside. They communicated in their minds via Soul Strength. When the Emperor heard that Xu Que belonged to the Third Prince’s team, he was slightly stunned.
“So this is the young man that my third and seventh child are trying to protect, on behalf of whom they offended the Jade Sword Sect!” muttered the Emperor. “His Soul Strength and cultivation seem good. But is his unusual divine chariot really as strong as they say?”
Not long after, all the elite cultivators participating in the first round finished their preparations and sat inside their divine chariots!
In order to prevent cheating, the participating divine chariots could not be fully enclosed, so everyone could see the contestants clearly and know what was happening!
Thus, the spectators could clearly see the fighting spirit, vigor and aggressiveness in each of the contestants’ eyes!
“This is only the first round and the atmosphere is already so intense!”
“Everyone wants to win. Even if they can’t be first, they still want to get a good ranking!”
“In my opinion, the champion for this round will be Chariot King Zhang!”
“I beg to differ. This racing track has many bends which will force them to decelerate. In my opinion, such a track is more advantageous for the Ghost of the Divine Chariot, Qi Yun Fei, who possesses very powerful Soul Strength. The champion for this round will be him!”
“No, you’re both wrong! The one who will benefit from the terrain the most is the Number One Genius from Spirit Treasures Pavilion, Gao Qiao Jie. His divine chariot is currently the strongest one that they have, and it was made to adapt to all kinds of terrain, especially land with many bumps and bends!”
Everyone gave their own opinions on the race. Their discussions mainly revolved around Chariot King Zhang and the other two hot favorites.
Although the crowd supported different contestants, nobody was optimistic about Xu Que either. The only opinion that the crowd shared was that was the champion would be one of the three favorite contenders!
Suddenly, someone exclaimed loudly in a puzzled tone, “everyone, look! Xu Que has not entered his divine chariot! Doesn’t he need to prepare?”
That exclamation instantly drew everyone’s eyes to Xu Que once more!
It was true that all the contestants had already entered their divine chariots. They had begun preparations for their inscriptions and released their Soul Strength.
Xu Que was the only one who still stood beside his AE86. His body leaned on the car and he struck a pose, as if he was a car show model!
“Come, come, come, if you meant to come here or if you’re just passing by, if you’re lying down, sitting down or standing up… don’t miss this! Hey! Friends at the top of the mountain, hurry up… turn around and look at me… Yes! Me, look at me…”
Xu Que was now posing as a car show model wearing a proud but warm expression. He yelled heartily for attention. “Come and look! Take a look! This is this season’s latest car model AE86. It comes equipped with the most luxurious configuration and interior set-up. It has a powerful engine and is especially good at corners, overtaking and drifting. Look at the overall luster of the car—it’s an elegant combination of black and white! Do you know what this elegant black and white symbolises? It is a combination which symbolises low-key luxury and elegance, signifying the match of a boy and girl…”
Nobody had expected that instead of preparing the divine chariot for the race by releasing his Soul Strength earlier for easier control, Xu Que would actually spend his time introducing his AE86.
However, Xu Que could not care less. His dashing pose and his ‘sales pitch’ earlier had reaped many rewards, as he could hear the constant ringing of system notifications in his head. He started to grow more enthusiastic in his enterprise of acting tough. “See this? This seat is made of true leather, and on the control screen panel, you can play a short AV video! So you can drive and enjoy… huh? Are you asking what an AV video is? Well, that is a profound skill that you can only understand through experiencing it yourself, and not from being told by others!”
The other cultivators were using their Soul Strength and making sure that their inscriptions worked perfectly and could maximise effective control of their chariots. Yet Xu Que was still busy introducing his chariot! Everyone was dumbstruck once again!
“Is this guy going to give up the race by not racing after all?”
“This shouldn’t be. He’s been invited by the Third Prince… or maybe this is a conspiracy to make the Third Prince lose here?”
“I’ve said before that this young man is not reliable. The Third Prince is going to get implicated this time!”
“Ah, it seems like the rumors about what had happened in the Sword Catacomb might have been fake!”
“When Xu Que introduced his divine chariot, even though I could not understand much of what he said, I got the feeling that his divine chariot really seems especially powerful!”
“Powerful my foot! I can’t even locate the inscriptions control panel in his chariot. Moreover, he isn’t even preparing his chariot by releasing his Soul Strength, and is wasting his time introducing all this unimportant stuff. How can he win like this? He has lost before the race has even begun…”
