Chapter 373: The Formidable Young Hero Xu!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Xu Que was stumped for a few seconds.
The burial chamber before him was visibly a mess.
Many fresh traces on the ground indicated that a fight had recently taken place within!
And in one corner of the chamber wall, several paw prints could clearly be seen. They looked like the paw prints of a dog.
F*ck! Xu Que cursed in his mind.
Besides that f*cking Buttface, who else could have created this mess?
It can only be Buttface!
This dog must have entered this place earlier. He surely had his own means. And not only did he successfully pass through the round of armored puppets, he also broke the restrictive enchantments here as well. That’s really incredible!
“Young Hero Xu, let us discuss our strategy. From what I understand, in order to break the restrictive spell, we need ten cultivators who have the ability to move with speed and agility, coupled with a tacit understanding between them. Only then will the spell be broken!”
“Yes, and no mistakes are allowed. Otherwise, all ten of them will suffer the pain of tens of thousands of swords piercing their hearts. They will die on the spot!”
The voices of the Third Prince and his group were heard as they explained how to break the restrictive spell.
As the group was all standing behind Xu Que who was clad in his Iron Man suit, they were unable to see what had happened in the burial chamber. They were wearing solemn expressions and were wondering how to break the spell without anyone getting hurt.
Xu Que raised an eyebrow and waved his hand. He said heroically, “this is just a small restrictive spell. There’s no need to be afraid! Didn’t I say earlier that one should not back off when one encounters problems, but instead face the problem fearlessly! This type of common restrictive spell can be broken with a single strike from me!”
The group behind him felt really worried when they heard that.
The Third Prince and his group hurriedly tried to convince Xu Que otherwise. “Young Hero Xu, you can’t be reckless about this!”
“Yes, this restrictive spell was cast by our ancestors, the previous reigning Emperors of the Metal Nation. Even if His Majesty were here, he would likely not be able to get away unscathed either!”
“Exactly! When we step into the area affected by the restrictive spell, there will be tens of thousands of swords coming right at us at an astounding speed. That is impossible to defend against effectively!”
“Young Master Xu, come back. Let us come up with a good plan!” urged the Seventh Princess anxiously.
Xu Que waved his hand and shook his head. “Don’t worry, this kind of restrictive spell is nothing to me. Everyone, relax!”
After that, he stepped forward so he was one step closer to the end of the tunnel.
Most of the group behind instinctively exclaimed.
“Young Hero Xu, don’t stand too close to the front. It’s dangerous!”
“Yes, Young Master Xu, don’t be rash. We still have a lot of time, there’s no need to rush!”
“Come back quickly, Young Hero Xu!”
The Third Prince and his group attempted to make Xu Que change his mind. They were fearful that Xu Que might die because of the restrictive spell.
On the other hand, the Second Prince and his group curled their lips up and sniggered.
“Some people just don’t know what’s good for them. Don’t think that by breaking the round of puppets, you’ll be able to break this powerful restrictive enchantment as well!”
“A greedy person is like a snake that tries to swallow an elephant. Since someone wants to try his luck, what’s the point of dissuading him?”
“That’s right. If he wants to die, just leave him be!”
“Xu Que, why are you not going out now? Are you afraid?”
The Second Prince was the loudest amongst them. His face was filled with scorn.
However, Xu Que lifted his Iron Man arm slowly and aimed towards the burial chamber in front. “I’ve said,” laughed Xu Que indifferently, “this kind of restrictive spell can be broken in one strike!”
With that, his palm started to shine brightly with white light!
A beam of light headed towards the burial chamber.
With a loud explosion, the beam of light hit a corner of the burial chamber. It didn’t create much damage, the dog paw prints at that corner was the only thing that got destroyed.
After all, the walls of the Imperial Tombs had been strengthened by the engravings of rune words on the walls.
Although the Iron Man was really a wonderful and dashing existence, its powers simply could not match up to the cultivation world. It managed to defeat the armored puppets easily as the powers of the Iron Man happened to be their sole, fatal weakness – there’s always one thing to conquer another!
As for the second burial chamber, the restrictive enchantment was already broken by Buttface. Xu Que simply pretended that he was the one who broke the spell. There was no need to destroy anything else since the spell had been broken.
Nobody could see what Xu Que had done, as they were all behind and blocked by him.
They only knew that Xu Que had attacked with only one strike. And then, there was a loud explosion. After that, there was only silence.
At this time, Xu Que smiled pleasantly, “It’s okay now. The spell has been broken. Everyone queue up and follow me to the next checkpoint.”
When he finished speaking, Xu Que started to walk forward.
“Young hero Xu, no…”
The Third Prince and his group was appalled and shouted.
But before they could finish their sentence, everyone was dumbfounded.
Xu Que took big strides with his Iron Man suit stepping into the burial chamber and was perfectly fine. There was no restrictive spell at all. It was totally calm and peaceful!
All of a sudden, everyone was shocked:
How… how is this possible?
With just one strike, the restrictive spells casted by our previous reigning Emperors got destroyed?
This is called overpowered, right?
“Young hero Xu, you’re fantastic!”
“We didn’t know that young hero Xu is actually so brave and heroic. We have misjudged you!”
“Young hero Xu not only mastered the skill of controlling the divine chariots, his skills of magical weapon forging have also attained the peak of perfection. We didn’t expect his ability to break restrictive spells could be so unfathomable either!
“Geniuses like young hero Xu is the indeed the role model of our generation!”
“Awesome, too wonderful!”
At that moment, most of them were filled emotion and marveled at Xu Que’s strength!
After all, Xu Que’s previous achievements had left them directly immersed in shock and had no energy to question if what he did this time was reasonable or not.
However, the crowd outside the Imperial Tombs had seen everything clearly.
Through the heaven and earth mirror, they saw the condition of the burial chamber as well as what Xu Que had done.
Before Xu Que fired a shot, they had already realised that the restrictive spell had already been broken. When Xu Que pretended to have broken the spell, everyone out there knew he was lying:
“Hmph, this Xu Que is really of shady character. He actually deceived the princes!”
“What he did is really despicable!”
“What kind of person did the Third Prince invite?”
“Precisely! Previously I saw from another heaven and earth mirror that it was a dog, not sure where it came from, that destroyed the restrictive enchantment!”
Many people were shaking their heads and were showing disdain towards Xu Que.
But at this moment, some of the people who saw Xu Que selling smelly tofu stood up and sneered, “You frogs in a well, don’t you know that the dog you saw is actually young hero Xu’s pet?”
“Obviously young hero Xu has foresight to let his dog clear the way by destroying the restrictive spell first then follow up by another strike. That was actually the finishing touch!”
“He’s right. Young hero Xu is really the role model of our generation. Even his pet is so strong, let alone himself?”
“Are you sure? That dog is actually young hero Xu’s pet?”
“No wonder it’s so powerful!”
“We have misjudged indeed. Everyone, please do not take it to heart!”
In no time, the crowd outside the Imperial Tombs were full of admiration towards Xu Que!
Meanwhile, Xu Que continued to advance deeper into the tomb and system notifications were constantly ringing in his head.
Ding! “Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 320 Acting Tough Points!”
Ding! “Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 350 Acting Tough Points!”
Ever since he exchanged and rented the Iron Man suit, his Acting Tough Points had been increasing steadily. Now Xu Que had almost recovered back his cost.
However, as they progressed deeper into the tomb, besides the first round where Xu Que took down all the puppets, he and the group had not met any other obstacles.
As they went deeper, whenever there was a checkpoint the group knew that indicated danger, there would be someone who would alert Xu Que to be careful.
Nonetheless, all the restrictive spells and traps had already been taken care of by Buttface.
As for Xu Que, he would not let any opportunity that allowed him to act tough to slip by. He would just pretend like what he did over at the second burial chamber with a shout, ‘I can break it with just one single strike’, followed by firing a beam of light. After that, under the respectful gazes of the group of cultivators, he would progress forward, taking big strides with a mighty aura.
Until finally, the group made it to the lowest level of the Imperial Tombs in just one day, stopping in front of a huge stone door.
