Xu Que started to chant a spell. The collar around the dog’s neck became tighter and tighter.
After hearing the dog shout ‘666’ numerous times, Xu Que finally let Buttface off temporarily and allowed the collar to revert back to its original size. The collar remained wrapped around Buttface’s neck.
Buttface was panting heavily, as though he had just had a close brush with death. He stuck out his long tongue and lay on the ground as if he was dead.
Xu Que was grinning from ear to ear, for he had successfully taught the dog a lesson!
“Buttface, you always claim to be a wolf, but only dogs find this collar especially irresistible. And this collar is also especially effective against dogs. Why did you fall for it so easily?” Xu Que asked, still grinning.
Buttface felt infuriated but the moment he thought about the collar on his neck, he instantly suppressed his anger. He explained, “this deity is a wolf but I can’t deny the fact that wolves are also part of the canine family. It is not surprising that this deity has fallen for the trap. After all, even the wise are not always free from error!”
Xu Que gave a laugh. “Looks like the collar didn’t shrink enough for you!”
With that, he mimed recommencing the chant.
Buttface was terrified and exclaimed, “no, no, no, I’m in awe of your strength, alright? Please, let’s talk this over nicely.”
Xu Que levitated stone from the ground into his palm, then threw it a distance. “Go on, Buttface.” He smiled. “Fetch the stone!”
With a swoosh, Buttface dashed away to get the stone. But he didn’t hold the stone in his mouth—instead he acted like a human holding the stone with his front paws and hurried back to Xu Que, wearing an eager-to-please expression.
Xu Que looked at Buttface with a smiling face without saying anything.
Buttface realised what Xu Que wanted. He grabbed the stone with his mouth then spat it out, then continued to look at Xu Que eagerly.
Everyone present was rendered speechless by both the man and the dog. They were secretly exclaiming in their hearts at how unusual and weird both the owner and his pet were!
“Okay, since I’ve gotten the spiritual herb, I’ll take my leave then. All of you can go ahead and excavate the Dragon Veins without any worry. No need to be polite with me!”
Now that Xu Que had gotten hold of the spiritual herb, there was no need to continue staying here.
He pulled out the Act Tough King Basic Suit and draped the black robe over himself like a dust coat!
The words ‘Exploding Heavens Faction’ glistened in front of his chest, attracting a lot of attention!
The princes and the cultivators all stared at him with their jaws hanging!
This was the second time he was changing his clothes since entering the Imperial Tombs. However, what he was wearing now had a majestic and domineering aura that was hard to describe!
“Let’s follow Young Hero Xu and leave the place!” suggested the Third Prince.
Originally, they had been here only to participate in the Imperial Tombs Contest. They had never thought that they would complete the entire Contest in just one day. And all the rounds had been cracked by Xu Que and his pet dog!
Now that all those traps were cleared, the Imperial Tombs could now be opened up for the mining of the Dragon Veins. The only problem was that perhaps the Metal Emperor would need to advise everyone on methods of excavating the Dragon Veins.
Thus, no one else really had a need to continue staying there either. When the Third Prince voiced his opinion, everyone decided to follow his suggestion. They all left together with Xu Que.
Meanwhile, outside the Imperial Tombs, the Metal Emperor’s heart was stirring with excitement and elation.
Now that the Imperial Tombs had been successfully opened up, his plans could finally be carried out. This would bring a major transformation and great development to the Metal Nation.
A flash of white light appeared at the entrance of the Imperial Tombs. The restrictive spell started to form ripples.
Immediately, the entire group of cultivators, with Xu Que in the lead, stepped out of the Imperial Tombs.
Xu Que became the focus of everyone’s attention immediately, as all eyes fell on him the moment he stepped out.
At that moment, he was in the spotlight.. He had become someone who was being respected and admired.
The Act Tough King Basic Suit that he was wearing gave off the aura of a majestic leader. His Acting Tough Points kept increasing as notifications rang ceaselessly in his head!
The crowd stared wide-eyed at Xu Que’s clothes. His outfit was an eye-opener for them!
“So this is the uniform of the Exploding Heavens Faction that Young Hero Xu belongs to?”
“What an incredible aura! The material looks really ordinary but that aura is extraordinary!”
“Looks like the Exploding Heavens Faction is a big sect! Even their uniforms are so domineering!”
“Especially the three words on the chest ‘Exploding Heavens Faction’. They must have been written by a Master.”
Many people marveled at the effect the suit had on people. It impressed many.
The Third Prince was smiling radiantly in excitement. Besides winning the position of Crown Prince, he had done well in getting a capable man like Xu Que to rid the Imperial Tombs of all those traps and enchantments, and had ended up successfully opening it up.
Suddenly, the Metal Emperor left his seat and flew over to where Xu Que and rest of the group were standing.
The Emperor had actually gotten down from his throne and flown over to the top of the mountain to receive Xu Que and the rest of the group.
“Young Hero Xu is indeed someone favored by the heavens,” said the Emperor, greatly pleased. “The contest this round has truly been an eye-opener for me!” His voice was full of vigor and zeal that resonated through the area.
Everyone was envious but admitted in their hearts that Xu Que did deserve such treatment from the Emperor.
Well, there’s no one else like him. Young Hero Xu is really formidable and cool!
In just one day, he had managed to defeat all the puppets, enchantments and traps. He had even found the Dragon Veins. Who would not be in awe of him?
Xu Que looked at the Metal Emperor, who was now standing before him, and smiled casually. “I’m not someone favored by the heavens,” he said dismissively. “I’m just an ordinary young man. Moreover, in the Exploding Heavens Faction, ‘favored by the heavens’ is an offensive term to us.”
The Emperor was baffled for an instant. Everyone else was slightly taken aback as well.
‘Favored by the heavens’ is offensive?
How is this offensive?
Why is the Exploding Heavens Faction so eccentric?
Eh? Wait a moment… Exploding Heavens Faction…
As everyone mulled over this, they suddenly realised why Xu Que had said that!
It is no wonder ‘someone favored by the heavens’ is offensive. The Exploding Heavens Faction is going to explode the heavens; of course they will not want to be favored by the heavens!
But then again, the one who named their sect ‘Exploding Heavens Faction’ is truly someone who has a lot of guts!
How can you explode the heavens on a whim?
Everyone was speechless and the Metal Emperor was slightly embarrassed. He gave a cackle and changed the topic. “Young Hero Xu, you’ve done well. Is there anything you want? I’ll make sure to satisfy your demands!”
“Anything I want?”
Xu Que gave it some serious contemplation, feeling that perhaps he should take the opportunity to make a fast buck or something!
However, Xu Que was not short on anything. What should he ask for?
He glanced over at the divine chariot at the foot of the mountain. That was the Empress Dowager’s vehicle!
Nevertheless, Xu Que was not that perverted. Even if the Empress Dowager was as beautiful as a fairy, it would be too awkward to ask for the Empress Dowager’s hand in marriage!
That would be too embarrassing!
At this moment, a few figures were moving at a great speed towards them. The figures landed on top of the mountain and kneeled on the floor on one leg. They then paid their respects to the Emperor!
“Greetings, Your Majesty!” The few of them said in unison.
They looked very alike and were all wearing the uniform of the Imperial Guards!
“You may rise!” said the Metal Emperor.
He wore a somewhat unnatural facial expression but managed to glance at Xu Que calmly.
However, one of the guards did not stand up. He looked anxious and said, “Your Majesty, this subordinate has just returned from Fire Country and has urgent information to report. Something major has happened in Fire Country!”
The guard then looked up at the Metal Emperor.
And when he saw Xu Que standing beside the Emperor, his expression changed drastically. It was as if he had seen a ghost!
