It seemed the Heavens had heard Xu Que’s cry. Finally, the lake-sized Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud came down in torrents with a big bang.
A cloud of lightning, which was all thunder essence, illuminated the sky and earth with its purple radiance. The crisscrossing thunder and lightning poured down towards Xu Que’s head with crackling sounds.
No one can survive such a great amount of Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud!
General Zhuge, please rest in peace!
Your burger and ice cream will forever be remembered by us!
People had already started to mourn for him.
A question popped into someone’s head. The person shouted abruptly, “Wait, General Zhuge, before your death, can you tell us whether we can get a refund for the membership cards?”
“Don’t even think about it!”
Xu Que turned around and swore that guy. Then he picked up the Black Heavy Buster Sword, flew up and started to launch an active attack!
All the onlookers were dumbfounded.
The first Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud had been as large as a waterfall. However, it had been broken apart by Xu Que alone.
But the lightning and thunder was as large as a lake. How could Xu Que break apart such a large streak of lightning?
“How…could he be so brave?”
“It is impossible to break apart such a formidable thunder tribulation. He will be devoured by it!”
“Alas! He will die anyway. Do you think General Zhuge can survive by staying where he is?”
“This time he is facing certain death!”
People were sighing.
However, everyone was shocked in the next moment.
Xu Que jumped up and unleashed a jet of black flame from his hand, which was the Eight Waste Destruction Flame. Instantly, the entire Black Heavy Buster Sword was wrapped with flames, giving off violent and fiery air waves.
Along with an explosion, Xu Que unleashed the Six Corporeal Forms in the sky, creating countless black sword shadows. With unstoppable momentum, the sword shadows, which could cover the sky and earth, smashed into the lake-sized Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud abruptly.
Countless sword shadows, which had been saturated with the power of the Eight Waste Destruction Flame, experienced a direct collision with the thunder lake. There was a burst of formidable black flame. Then a tremendous explosion was triggered.
The scary power shocked the void and generated circles of formless ripples.
The black flames and the purple thunder and lightning were crushed and vanished in the sky at the same time. The remnants turned into a drizzle of purple lightning and fell on Xu Que, who absorbed it completely.
The whole area was in silence. All the onlookers were dumbfounded and amazed.
Did… he just break apart such a big Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud?
All those sword shadows were saturated with power! Aren’t they just illusions?
Also, what kind of magic art could have scary black flames like that?
Hell, how many unique skills does this guy have?
Many people were shocked. They had thought that Xu Que would be killed by the second thunder tribulation. But they had never expected the second tribulation to be destroyed by him in such a neat way.
Xu Que was not afraid of this Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud at all. He had encountered this kind of thunder tribulation during the Golden Core Stage, and the result had involved him asking for more thunder tribulations by chastising the Heavens.
As for now, he had reached the consummation level of the Original Infant Stage. His physique was also much stronger than before. The same Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud was nothing to him now, even if there was more thunder.
“This… is impossible! How could this be? Why did so many Lightning Attracting Bees have no effect on him?” the old man shouted in surprise and disbelief at that moment. He kept stepping backwards.
Standing in the air, Xu Que was still absorbing the purple lightning. He glanced at the old man and said with a sardonic smile, “Old thing, don’t be surprised and scared. Your Lightning Attracting Bees do work, and the Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud is formidable. But there is a reason for everything that has occurred just now.”
“What is it?” the old man asked with a quiver in his voice. He started to sense the terror that Xu Que could cause.
The rest of the onlookers also focused their eyes on Xu Que, for they wanted to know why he could survive such a formidable Heavenly Tribulation as well!
“Because…” Xu Que opened his mouth and then shouted loudly, “Because I am too strong!”
All of a sudden, the whole area descended into silence.
Everyone was so depressed, for they had thought that Xu Que would state some unfathomable reasons. But they had never expected… Xu Que to be so shameless that he would brag about being too strong.
People couldn’t help cursing. However, they had nothing to retort with.
After all, what he had said was correct. Because he was so strong, such a formidable Heavenly Tribulation couldn’t harm him at all.
“Who the hell are you?” the old man shouted gloomily.
The old man’s eyes were full of terror and puzzlement. He was more curious about Xu Que’s identity. A young man like him could have so many unique skills. He had even been offered a bounty for his death by the overseas Jiang family. His background had to be unfathomable.
Xu Que smiled slightly. “This question is quite familiar! It seems you have asked me it many times. I have told you I am Mr. Wang who lives next door! The north wind blows. The fall wind is cool. Someone’s beautiful wife stays home alone. I am good at solving your problems. I am Mr. Wang, your next-door neighbor! Remember?”
Many people couldn’t help laughing instantly.
The north wind blows. The fall wind is cool. Someone’s beautiful wife stays home alone. I am good at solving your problems.. I am Mr. Wang, your next-door neighbor!
Holy shit! General Zhuge is also a poet! He could even blurt out such shameless drivel.
But the old man is so old. Even if he has a beautiful wife, his wife shouldn’t be young anymore. How would you flirt with such a lady?
“You bastard! How dare you say that to me!” The old man was angry and shouted whilst pointing at Xu Que.
“So what? It seems you are not happy with me. So how about a duel here?” Xu Que smiled shamelessly.
At the same time, he had already absorbed all the purple thunder and lightning from the second Heavenly Tribulation into his body. Now a fifth of the thunder essence in his Dantian was purple. For him, this Heavenly Tribulation had been really fruitful.
The old man was shaking with anger. If he had not been afraid of the thunder tribulation, he would have accepted the challenge of Xu Que.
However, the Heavenly Tribulation for Xu Que was still not finished. The old man didn’t dare to come close to him. Xu Que was not afraid of the thunder tribulation, but he was.
“Hum! You callow youth, don’t try to fool me by provoking me! Enjoy your happy hours! It’s rotten luck that you can escape this time, for you will die miserably if the overseas person comes to you personally,” the old man snorted gloomily.
“Those overseas people are nothing for me. This sneak attack arranged by them demonstrates their foolishness. I could defeat a hundred low-grade cultivators like you in one minute!” Xu Que smiled coldly with fiery eyes. He didn’t care about the bounty that had been offered by the overseas people for his death.
Standing high in the sky, he was just like a god, someone mighty and magnificent!
Just at this moment, Xu Que had hardly finished his words when a tiny streak of golden lightning slashed down from the sky suddenly.
Without any warning, the golden lightning slashed down quickly and menacingly.
Xu Que had no time to evade it. The golden lightning slashed his shoulder directly, and shot him down like a kite with a broken string.
Boom! Xu Que fell on the hilltop heavily, shaking the ground a bit and generating a lot of dust.
His dashing posture had lasted even less than three seconds.
Immediately the whole area fell silent again.
Everyone was totally stunned and full of terror.
“The golden lightning? Is… it the Ancient Catastrophe recorded in the ancient books? How could it be here?”
“My God! He has even attracted the Ancient Catastrophe!”
“The golden lightning was so small. However, the Ancient Catastrophe has the power to destroy Buddha and the Heavens!”
“It’s over! This is the Heavens’ will.”
“The Heavens can’t tolerate his existence. Therefore, the Heavens have ignored the cultivation stages and have just unleashed all kinds of fierce Heavenly Tribulations… to kill him!”
“Xu Que!” The Water Empress was also shocked. She shouted Xu Que’s name and flew over to check whether Xu Que was still alive.
This golden lightning had been the Ancient Catastrophe, which was designed to eliminate Buddha and the Heavens.
A cultivator at the Original Infant Stage would never be able to withstand the golden lightning, even it was just a very tiny bolt of it. The Water Empress wouldn’t even be able to ensure her survival if she had to face the golden lightning.
After being shot down, Xu Que fell silent and didn’t reply to the Water Empress’s calls.
All of a sudden, everyone was stunned.
Could… he die like this?
He has endured the Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud. Has he been killed by such a tiny but sudden attack of the Ancient Catastrophe at last?
