Chapter 474: If You Are Not a Coward, Don’t Just Finish It!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
It was difficult for the onlookers to process what had just happened.
Just a second ago, General Zhuge was consoling the old man and telling him that he would be OK. Seeing this, the crowd was touched. They didn’t expect General Zhuge to show such kindness, especially seeing as this old man had attempted to kill him in the past. However, none of them had expected what would happen after General Zhuge gave the iron needle to the old man.
All the onlookers had stared with wide eyes as they witnessed a golden lightning bolt fly towards the iron needle, strike the old man, and cause him to be obliterated. All sorts of thoughts were now going through their minds.
Why wasn’t the lightning arrester functional?
He promised the old man would be OK, right? Why was he still killed?
The onlookers were totally stunned and looked at Xu Que dumbfoundedly. Xu Que stood on the hilltop with a smile.
“Oh, I forgot to tell him the correct way to use a lightning arrester,” Xu Que shouted while scratching the back of his head. “It should be placed on the roof of a house. It doesn’t work if you just hold it in your hand. But it’s OK; now I will continue to cross the Heavenly Tribulation!”
Hearing this, the onlookers were ready to spit blood.
The lightning arrester should have been placed on a roof? D*mn! He was on a hill in the Imperial Tomb. Where would he ever have found a roof? You cheated him! As a level six of the Infant Transformation State, that poor old man was killed in such a foolish way…
People shook their heads. They should have known better than to think that General Zhuge could be so kind-hearted.
Lightning arrester!? Your promise that he would be OK was just another one of your tricks!
The thunderclouds in the sky started to surge again. The thunderclouds were gathering and lightning was about to pour down.
Looking at the sky with determined eyes, Xu Que raised his hands. Three strands of strange flames appeared in front of him. Ice and fire were mingled together. The flames created a distorted void in front of him.
Immediately, the Heavenly Tribulation became extremely intense. Xu Que’s three strange flames were also raging. Xu Que closed his fist and abruptly grabbed the three strange flames in his palm. He then mingled the three flames by quickly flipping his fingers around. After several breaths, a florid, three-colored Fiery Lotus was floating in his palm.
Golden light burst from the sky. Many golden lightning bolts dashed towards Xu Que like a suspended river in the Nine Heaven.
“Hmph!” Xu Que snorted. “I will break those pathetic Heavenly Tribulations apart!
Xu Que threw the three-colored Fiery Lotus into the sky. The attack directly hit one golden lightning bolt.
After a world-shaking bang, the whole sky was filled with flames. Xu Que’s three-colored Fiery Lotus was turned into a sky-covering flame sea. The explosive attack smashed countless golden lightning bolts into small pieces which fell from the sky.
Once again, Xu Que had defeated an intense Heavenly Tribulation in one fell swoop.
The onlookers couldn’t believe what they saw. No one dared to question Xu Que’s strength. Before, some people were afraid that Xu Que would be killed in this Heavenly Tribulation. Now, no one was afraid of this happening.
This guy is not crossing the Heavenly Tribulation, but instead is using it as an opportunity to strengthen his physique like crazy.
Numerous tiny golden lightning bolts were dispersed in the sky like a golden rain, all of which were absorbed by Xu Que.
The thunder essence in his Dantian was already a little bit golden and, as such, was even more powerful than the Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud.
“Come on! Continue!” Xu Que yelled at the sky, raising his head. “This is just the fifth tribulation! If you are not a coward, just give me all nine tribulations right now!”
He had crossed the 59 Heavenly Tribulations successfully. However, he was not satisfied at all. He wanted to force the God to attract the 99 Heavenly Tribulations like last time so that he could absorb more thunder essence.
However, this time the God just ignored him. When the golden lightning bolts were broken apart and absorbed, the thunderclouds began to disperse quickly and stopped preparing new thunder tribulations.
Xu Que was angry. He continued to shout, “If you are not a coward, don’t just finish it. I have just finished my warm-up! You can’t just leave! Come on, give me more!”
The thundercloud showed no signs of reforming.
“Sh*t! Don’t ignore me! Thundercloud, don’t just disperse! Just attack me! I’ll put one of my hands behind my back! D*mn! How about both hands?”
Still, the thundercloud was dispersing further and further away from Xu Que.
“OK, OK! I will take off my protective artifacts and fight you with my bare hands! Sh*t! Don’t make me fill the sky with exploding flames again!”
The more Xu Que shouted, the more worried he became. Even when Xu Que threatened to engulf the sky in flames yet again, the Heavenly Tribulation continued to retreat without any hesitation, ignoring him completely.
“Stop! You coward!” Xu Que was very anxious. Crossing the Heavenly Tribulation was a rare opportunity, an opportunity that he only got at the beginning of each cultivation stage. He didn’t have many opportunities like this left. If this tribulation ended prematurely, it would be a big loss for him.
Xu Que jumped up into the sky with the three-colored Fiery Lotus in his hand. He began to chase the thunder clouds.
All the onlookers were shocked.
What kind of person is this guy?
He is too d*mn scary and strange. He is chasing the thunderclouds. It seems that he frightened those thunderclouds away.
Meanwhile, in a place several hills away from Xu Que, Buttface also witnessed this scene on the hilltop. Immediately, he widened his two dog eyes, dumbfounded.
“H*ll, what is this? Could this still be considered crossing the Heavenly Tribulation? It seems the thunderclouds are crossing the tribulation of that guy! Man, I need a piece of smelly Tofu to steady my nerves!”
In the end, Xu Que’s plan to irritate the God failed. Although he chased the thunderclouds and bombarded the sky with the three-colored Fiery Lotus, the thunder clouds disappeared high up into the air and left Xu Que with nothing.
Xu Que landed on the hilltop ruefully.
“Pah! Maybe this was a fake Heavenly Tribulation! It was too easy!”
The crowd was silent.
If that was too easy, what kind of Heavenly Tribulation could satisfy him?
Despite the intense scenes the onlookers had just witnessed, they were glad that General Zhuge was in good health after the trial.
“Good! General Zhuge survived. We can enjoy burgers and ice cream with him in the future!”
“Yeah! It seems the God has had mercy on us and didn’t kill him.”
“Thank God!” someone said, thanking the God sincerely.
However, Xu Que heard this person’s words and said scornfully, “Don’t bother. I will explode this sh*tty God sooner or later!”
Not minding Xu Que’s exclamation, the Water Empress flew over and greeted Xu Que with a smile.
“Little guy, congratulations! I underestimated your strength,” she said.
“It’s nothing, Xu Que said modestly, smiling. “I got lucky today. I shall appreciate the blessing of this God!”
The onlookers were dumbfounded again.
Hold on. Didn’t he just say that he was going to explode that God?
Why is he so modest in front of the Water Empress?
Did he just say he will appreciate the blessing of this God?
Holy sh*t! I can’t believe these words are really coming out of General Zhuge’s mouth!
He can’t be the real General Zhuge!
As the onlookers watched Xu Que speechlessly, Xu Que flew away from the hilltop by putting his hands behind his back and standing on a lightning bolt, flying in the direction of the Imperial Palace. He arrived at the Imperial Palace at the same time as the Water Empress.
This Heavenly Tribulation had been very fruitful for Xu Que. He had earned over 5,000 Acting Tough Points, and his total amount of Acting Tough Points had now exceeded 56,000, which made him a rich man.
The thunder essence in his Dantian was also purified now, which made him much stronger than before. Now his Monkey Blocks Lightning was even more powerful than the three-colored Fiery Lotus.
Moreover, after being strengthened by the golden lighting bolts, his physique was also stronger than before.
Because of this, Xu Que approached Buttface and asked for a duel. Buttface immediately shook his head.
“No, I’m afraid that if I make any false moves, I’ll kill you!”
“You’re right,” Xu Que sighed.
Although Xu Que’s physique was strong, he knew clearly that his physique was no match for the invincible body of Buttface. A normal attack from Buttface could kill him, or at least severely wound him.
However, Xu Que wanted to duel Buttface anyway. Therefore, in order to prevent Buttface from fighting back and to ensure fair play, Buttface was bound on the wall like a dog-shaped sandbag.
Buttface screamed miserably for the whole night in the Imperial Palace as Xu Que unleashed his power on Buttface without holding back.
