Chapter 356: The Comeback Of AE86

The target that you are communicating with is not located in the service area?
What the hell did that mean?
After hearing these words, the Seventh Princess was so angry that she nearly fell apart.
You did this deliberately, right?
Aren’t you just standing there?
That voice I heard is your voice!
Why did you pretend not to hear me? You’ll be the death of me!
“Young Master Xu! Young Master Xu, just listen to me…” The Seventh Princess did not give up and continued to communicate with him via Soul Strength. But Xu Que immediately responded with another sentence.
“Sorry, you have reached the maximum number of times that you can contact the user. Contact has failed. Please recharge and try again later…”
Once again, it was that cheapskate’s voice! Xu Que!
The Seventh Princess felt completely defeated by him, especially as Xu Que had even winked at her. She was really at her wits’ end.
At the same time, the Metal Emperor was also surprised as he had not expected Xu Que to be so incredibly determined to continue the contest.
“Xu Que,” the Emperor said with doubt. “I ask you one more time. Are you sure you want to continue with the contest?”
“Yes, it has to continue!” Xu Que patted his chest righteously.
The Metal Emperor nodded his head slightly. “Alright, I will grant you your request! And I will exempt you from the punishment of 100 strokes of the stick as well!”
“Thank you, Your Majesty!” Xu Que said reverently. “But… Your Majesty, the 100 strokes for the Second Prince should not be exempted. Otherwise, everyone would lose faith in the country’s rules and regulations!”
“Of course!” The Metal Emperor did not hesitate to reply. He waved his hand and declared, “I declare that the Divine Chariot Contest will continue now. Men! Bring the Second Prince to me to receive his 100 strokes!”
Evidently, the Metal Emperor was a just and impartial person. He would not take the side of any prince.
Frankly, the 100 strokes were nothing to the Second Prince!
But the continuation of the Divine Chariot Contest was a big blow to him.
Chariot King Zhang’s divine chariot had been destroyed and he was lagging behind now. There was no way that he would catch up. If the contest continued, he would not be the champion of this round.
The Emperor had already declared that the race would continue. This was a fact that could not be changed anymore!
The Second Prince felt bitter indignation inside, yet he could do nothing about it.
He threw an icy glare at Xu Que and communicated to him via Soul Strength. “Xu Que, don’t think that I will be helpless against you even though you’ve destroyed Zhang Lin’s divine chariot. I still have other contestants in this round. Even if being champion is out of my reach, my team will secure a top ten ranking!”
“So what? It’s none of my business!” Xu Que replied indifferently with a shrug of his shoulders.
“Hmph, the price that this prince will pay is not just being champion,” thought the Second Prince, smirking. “But you, you’re representing the Third Prince’s team. He has sent incompetent people to represent him. If you can’t get a ranking, he’ll lose the right to fight for the position of Crown Prince. This time, you’re the loser!”
Xu Que shrugged his shoulders again. This time, he didn’t communicate via Soul Strength, but grinned and spoke loudly. “Your Royal Highness, the Second Prince, who told you I won’t be able to get a ranking? You’d better hurry up and receive your punishment. I’ve no time to communicate with you through Soul Strength. Goodbye!”
Xu Que turned away as he finished talking and summoned the System Store!
So what if this AE86 is destroyed?
This Act Tough King has a countless AE86s!
With the System on hand, I have the whole world at my fingertips!
“System, I want to rent another AE86. It’s just a mere 500 Acting Tough Points. I earned back that amount long ago!”
Xu Que shouted for System in his head!
Instantly, a brand new AE86 appeared once again!
The crowd was in an uproar!
This fellow actually had another divine that was identical to the one that had crashed!
But… what was the point?
The others were almost halfway up the mountain. Even if he started racing now, he wouldn’t be able to catch up… right?
The Third Prince, Seventh Princess and the rest of their team were listless. Their faces were white as sheets!
The Emperor had given his order to continue with the contest.
From their point of view, that was equivalent to announcing that the Third Prince had lost the right to compete for Crown Prince!
“Third Brother, I’m sorry! I trusted my instincts too much!” said an extremely remorseful Seventh Princess.
Xu Que had totally ignored her when she had communicated with him via Soul Strength. That made her feel helpless and full of self-reproach, as she had been the one who had highly recommended Xu Que!
The Third Prince gave a mild sigh. “Forget it! Perhaps this is my destiny! The Heavens do not want me to become Crown Prince, so there’s no point insisting on it!”
So the position of the Crown Prince will be given to one of the other princes, just like that?
The princes on the Third Prince’s side sighed bitterly!
“Everyone, this Old Driver is going to start racing again! Does anyone have another cup of water? Oh, the glass of water from earlier has not spilled yet, I’ll just use that!”
Just then, Xu Que’s loud voice was heard and he was seen running fast towards his crashed car and taking out the glass of water. Then he hurriedly placed the glass of water inside his new AE86.
The car door slammed shut and he quickly fastened his seat belt!
Xu Que stepped on the clutch pedal, geared up, eased off the brakes and stepped on the accelerator!
All his movements were executed smoothly without any break!
The AE86’s racing engine gave off a loud but muffled sound that everyone could hear.
Immediately, Xu Que’s car zoomed into the distance like an arrow released from a bow.
The crowd was rather stunned.
They had not thought that at a time like this, Xu Que would be able to face the contest positively and aggressively!
From the transparent car windows and windscreen of the AE86, everyone could clearly see that Xu Que’s lips were curled up, forming a faint smile!
That is a smile of self-confidence!
That is his determination to win the contest!
“Heh, so what if I let all of you have a ten minute advantage? This Act Tough King can still be champion since we’re driving on this type of mountain road!”
Xu Que’s eyes lit up and his hands busily changed gears!
In just a moment, he had already shifted into fifth gear, the highest one!
The car’s speed accelerated to over 200 kilometers per hour, swiftly covering the gap between him and the divine chariots ahead like lightning!
At first, no one thought anything of it!
But as time passed, as Xu Que’s car grew closer and closer to the divine chariots, some of the crowd started to notice. They exclaimed in surprise.
“Look! Young Hero Xu seems to be catching up!”
“Heavens, his divine chariot is so fast!”
“Maybe there is still a chance for him?”
“It doesn’t seem right, though, look! There’s a curve in the road ahead but the speed of Young Hero Xu’s chariot is still increasing!”
Everyone was shocked by his speed.
Xu Que was driving a car; he did not have to use Soul Strength or spiritual enchantments to control it. His car was like a runaway horse, sprinting forward without any pressure. He definitely had it easier than the other cultivators!
However, the first curve had appeared in the road ahead!
This curve was very tricky and steep, as the angle was less than ninety degrees. Both cars and divine chariots would have to slow down.
Nonetheless, Xu Que did not slow down. He continued to step on the accelerator. His speed increased and increased and increased!
“Damn! He’s reaching the curve and he’s still picking up speed!”
“This is crazy!”
Immediately, the crowd started to gasp. They stared intensely at Xu Que’s rapidly accelerating AE86!
