The scout guard tried his best to speak in the lowest tone possible, telling the Emperor what had happened in Fire Country.
When the Metal Emperor heard everything, he was completely shocked.
But what they didn’t know was that when they had been talking, Buttface had snuck up behind them and listened in on everything without their knowledge.
The Metal Emperor did not realise anything and looked at the guard incredulously. “You mean… Young Hero Xu was originally the prince consort of Fire Country? He was plotted against by the Fire Emperor so he took revenge? The Emperor’s concubine, sister and daughter were also…”
“Yes, your loyal subordinate would use his life to guarantee that every word is true!” said the guard firmly.
The Metal Emperor stayed silent for a moment.
At the same time, he secretly heaved a sigh of relief.
After all, he had not done anything to Xu Que, so he was able to stay calm.
However, his eyes involuntarily flicked over to the Seventh Princess who had followed behind Xu Que.
“Will this boy take my seventh daughter away?” muttered the Metal Emperor, feeling somewhat worried.
At this moment, a shadow suddenly chimed in. A low voice spoke, “he will, he will, this deity will guarantee with my life that the rascal will definitely, absolutely, surely do such things!”
The Emperor and the scout guard were stunned by the abrupt appearance of Buttface. They each took a step back and stared at Buttface with much consternation. “You… when did you get here?”
Buttface rolled his crafty eyes and looked at them with feigned solemnity. “That’s not important. The important thing is, that fellow Xu Que is certainly a dangerous person. Whoever he stares at will get pregnant!”
Whoever he stares at will get pregnant? Are you exaggerating? The Metal Emperor and the scout raised their eyebrows as they considered this.
“Buttface, you seem in need of some strangling again!”
Suddenly, Xu Que’s voice was heard.
Buttface’s expression instantly changed and his first instinct was to run away.
However, the collar on his neck shrunk rapidly at the next moment.
Buttface immediately gave a miserable cry. His tongue stuck out to one side of his crooked mouth; his eyes were so wide that they seemed like they would pop out at any time. With a thump, he dropped to the floor and rolled on the ground in pain.
“Oww, hold… hold it! This deity did wrong! Really wrong! I’m guilty! I’m not a human!”
Buttface screamed and wailed like nobody’s business.
The Metal Emperor and the scout were startled by the sudden scene before them.
They turned to look at the peak of the mountain.
Xu Que was still standing at the peak, allowing the winds to blow at his black robe. He was chanting the spell so softly that only he could hear, but seemed bent on tormenting Buttface.
“You dare to speak ill of me behind my back? I’ll strangle you first for twenty hours!” said Xu Que indifferently.
Buttface was full of tears. He had become a crying dog now. “Don’t, I’m wrong. Just now these two fellows started it by speaking ill of you. This deity is muddled in the head and said a few regretful words! These two are the main culprits!”
The Metal Emperor and the scout’s mouths twitched.
Darn! This dog is too brazen! It should be strangled to death!
Young Hero Xu did well in strangling it!
Xu Que continued to stay where he was, chanting the spell to teach Buttface a lesson as well as enjoying being in the wind.
Meanwhile, system notifications continued to ring in his head.
His Acting Tough Points increased again He had earned back more than 10,000 points now, making up for the points that he had spent earlier on renting the Iron Man suit.
However it didn’t just stop there. His Acting Tough Points kept coming in under the thunderstruck expressions of the crowd!
Obviously, everyone was incredulous about the fact that Xu Que had killed the Fire Emperor. They were aghast by the news and they took a long time to calm down and digest the piece of information.
At the foot of the mountain, the Empress Dowager inside her divine chariot was now filled with respect for Xu Que.
Previously, she had thought that Xu Que was only good at controlling the divine chariots.
She had never expected that Xu Que and his dog could destroy all the restrictions and prohibitions laid down by their ancestors in the Imperial Tombs.
And now, the scout had brought back such shocking news.
That young man had actually killed the Fire Emperor.
The Empress Dowager found this unbelievable but she knew that the news the scout brought back couldn’t be fake either.
Back at the top of the mountain, another scout suddenly kneeled down on the ground and said, “Your Majesty, your loyal subordinate is back from the Earth Nation… I have important news to report and it’s related to the Exploding Heavens Faction!”
Another scout beside him heard that and paused for a moment, then kneeled right down as well. “Your Majesty, your loyal subordinate is back from the Wood Nation and has something to report with regards to the Exploding Heavens Faction as well!”
The Metal Emperor was puzzled that the Earth Nation and the Wood Nation had news with regards to the Exploding Heavens Faction. Could it be that the Exploding Heavens Faction is active in these two nations? he thought.
Xu Que, who was standing at the peak of the mountain, was surprised at the words of the two scout guards as well.
He had not even been to the Wood Nation or the Earth Nation. How on earth did the two of them discover something about the Exploding Heavens Faction from the two distant nations?
Maybe the formidable name of the Exploding Heavens Faction has spread all over the world?
“What have you heard?” The Metal Emperor furrowed his eyebrows.
Everyone was curious as well and their sights were now on the two scouts.
After all, it was something related to the Exploding Heavens Faction. Many people were very interested in Xu Que’s Exploding Heavens Faction. They wanted to know more about this sect.
But when they heard the information from the scouts, everyone was frozen on the spot, including Xu Que!
According to them, just a few days ago, there had been a major case of theft in the Earth Nation and the Wood Nation.
The Imperial Tombs of these two nations had been raided. The Genesis Earth Herb and the Genesis Wood Herb with the Dragon Veins had been stolen by the same person in just three days.
And that man was the legendary notorious figure Duan Jiu De!
“Duan Jiu De? Are you sure it’s really him?”
“Heavens, I’ve always thought he was just a myth. I didn’t expect there to really be such a person out there!”
“This is too scary! According to what I heard, that fellow is unparalleled yet he likes to steal from others!”
“Within five nations, there is no one who can stop him!”
The crowd was alarmed; many of them gasped loudly as this piece of news had shaken them more than the news of Xu Que killing the Fire Emperor.
After all, the legendary Duan Jiu De was too bizarre and too powerful. They found it hard to believe that there was such a formidable presence in the world.
However, Xu Que was thoroughly dumbfounded.
Duan Jiu De took away the Genesis Herbs of the Earth Nation and the Wood Nation?
What… what should I do?
How can I revive Xiao Rou without the other two spiritual herbs?
Xu Que found it difficult to accept this fact.
On the other hand, the Metal Emperor frowned and asked, “Aren’t you supposed to tell us the news of the Exploding Heavens Faction? Why did you talk about Duan Jiu De?”
The scout hurriedly answered, “Your Majesty, there are some carved words left by Duan Jiu De in the Imperial Tombs of both nations. He claimed he is Duan Jiu De of the Exploding Heavens Faction and that he is the teacher of Young Hero Xu. He even said… if Young Hero Xu wants the spiritual herbs, just look for him!”
The crowd froze once more and stood there like fools.
Duan Jiu De… is actually Young Hero Xu’s teacher?
Oh my God, this is awesome!
No wonder Young Hero Xu has such a strange way of doing things!
So he’s the disciple of Duan Jiu De!
When the two of their names are placed together, the characters ‘Que’ and ‘De’ form to mean ‘wicked.’ And so… they become The Wicked Duo, don’t they?
At that moment, everyone turned to look at Xu Que in a dazed manner.
However, Xu Que was also taken aback by the news. He almost spat out a mouthful of blood!
When did I f*cking become Duan Jiu De’s disciple?
In the past it was just for acting tough. But now… that notorious old man, is he even qualified to become my teacher?
F*ck! Duan Jiu De, just you wait!
