The man in red flew across the room.
He was shocked and in great pain, for the dog’s tongue had fractured his finger!
How … could this be possible? the man in red exclaimed in his heart.
Cold sweat appeared on his forehead. Because the nerves of his fingers were directly connected to his heart, this slight wound caused him severe pain.
“Ouch! It hurts! Ah, ah!” the man in red cried.
Buttface snatched up the piece of barbequed pork and started screaming.
Because of his cries, everyone thought that Buttface was wounded. However, when they turned around, they found that Buttface was unscratched. He continued to scream hysterically as he licked the barbequed pork.
The corners of everyone’s mouths twitched.
Damn! This shameless dog!
The man was furious when he found that Buttface was unwounded.
I am the one that is wounded! Why are you screaming? the man thought.
“You are seeking death!” the man said.
The man in red began to perform a magic art with his unwounded hand, a ferocious expression on his face. A blue, divine light appeared and illuminated his fractured finger.
The fractured finger was as excellent as before!
Just then, the two other Sea Tribe members arrived.
“Second Young Master, are you wounded?” one of them asked in surprise.
“That dog is quite strange,” the man in red snorted. “Avoid close combat with it. Remember, I need it alive. As for the rest of the people, just kill them all. I will use them to vent my anger!”
The man in red dashed out to begin his killing spree.
When the two other men had made their entrance, Madam Ya’s face had become pale. She now held the Thunder Illusion Body’s arm tightly.
“Lord Li, those men are the remaining three members of the Sea Tribe!”
“It’s OK. Don’t worry, I’ll handle them,” the Thunder Illusion Body said, patting Madam Ya’s little hand. Then he stood up and stared at the man in red who was rushing over to attack them.
“Buttface,” Xu Que shouted calmy. “You can have the barbequed pork later. Now, it’s time for you to attack,” he said, gesturing to the two other Sea Tribe men.
“I’m not here!” Buttface replied.
He began to run, still holding the barbequed pork in his mouth.
“Hmph, this time you have to pay for what you eat,” Xu Que said.
Xu Que smiled slightly and waved his hand. A cloud of powder appeared around Buttface.
“God of Cookery,” Su Xiao Qi began. “Tell that d*mned monkey that his dog is running away!”
“He won’t get far! I gave him a drug. He will be back soon. Now, time to deal with this big-time seafood,” Xu Que said, smiling coldly at the man in red.
The man in red had jumped up to land on the rafters, planning to make his attack from above. He fixed his eyes on Madam Ya who was hugging the Thunder Illusion Body close. He gave a sarcastic smile.
“Madam Ya, is this your boyfriend?” he shouted. “He is quite mediocre! He is only at level one of the Infant Transformation Stage. How dare he try to compete with me?” the man in red laughed arrogantly.
The Thunder Illusion Body smiled coldly up at the man in red.
“Yes, I am just at level one of the Infant Transformation Stage. However, killing sea creatures for dinner is quite easy for me.”
Xu Que, who was still disguised as Stephen Chow, stepped out with a smile and began to speak.
“Good news! Tonight’s menu has been expanded! You, sea creature in red, what kind of seafood are you? Are you also a mantis shrimp?”
“Watch it! Who the h*ll do you two think you are? How dare you look down upon our tribe?” the man in red said. He was furious.
The man in red raised his finger. He then enlarged his finger to be many times its original size and swung his gigantic phalange at Xu Que, attacking him with a huge pillar of flesh.
“What the h*ll is this?”
Xu Que was stunned, for he had never seen such a strange magic art. Xu Que tried punching the large finger.
After punching the wall of flesh, Xu Que flew across the room, landing dozens of meters from where he first stood. A fresh strand of blood trickled from the corner of his mouth.
Xu Que was shocked. He hadn’t been wounded this seriously since he had first fought Zhang Dan Shan! He had always been able to defeat powerhouses whose cultivation levels were higher than his. But now, this man in red, who was just two levels above him at level six of the Infant Transformation Stage, had wounded him with one blow.
Are all the cultivators from overseas this powerful?
“Hmm? He’s still not dead?” the man in red said, staring at Xu Que coldly with knitted eyebrows.
Compared to the man in red, everyone from the Five Elements Mountain was extremely weak, no matter how high their cultivation level. In his rage, he had attacked this man with all of his strength. However, instead of killing him, he had just wounded him ever so slightly.
“God of Cookery, are you OK?” someone from the Mysterious Clan shouted.
“Stephen Chow, are you all right?” another Mysterious Clan member asked.
Su Ling’er had a serious expression on her face. She looked around at her fellow Mysterious Clan members.
“Go find Sun Wu Kong immediately and ask him to help us!” Su Ling’er commended.
“Right! Do as she says,” Su Xiao added. “The God of Cookery is just a chef. How could he possibly be able to defeat these guys? Go and find the d*mned monkey!”
“Yes! Of course!”
Many members of the Mysterious Clan ran off in different directions to search the palace for their Shaman Demon King.
Xu Que smiled ruefully.
Unfortunately, they won’t be able to find Sun Wu Kong. D*mn! It’s lucky I turned myself into the God of Cookery. This opponent is quite tough. I wouldn’t want to be embarrassed in front of the Mysterious Clan while impersonating Sun Wu Kong!
If Xu Que had had the People Killing Book and the People Killing Sword of All Layers, he definitely wouldn’t have been wounded. On the contrary, he could have wounded his opponent. However, he had left the People Killing Book and the People Killing Sword with Su Yun Lan. Without it, his physique was not strong enough handle direct collisions with this opponent.
“System, activate the Automatic Recovery Ability!”
Ding! “Automatic Recovery Ability is activated! One Acting Tough Point will be consumed every two hours!”
“Also, check whether there are any powerful magic arts that can help me defeat that guy!”
Ding! “Check finished. The host can purchase these magic arts after upgrading the System to version 4.0!”
The corner of Xu Que’s mouth twitched.
F*ck! Fishing in troubled waters again?… This d*mned System always wants me to upgrade it during the worst moments!
It was clear that even Celestial Rank magic arts were not powerful enough to defeat the man in red. Although he was just at level six of the Infant Transformation Stage, his strength was quite formidable! Only Star Rank magic arts would be able to defeat him, which he could only buy after upgrading the System.
“Oh, I just remembered something!” Xu Que said as he fixed his eyes on a package in the System’s interface.
When he had completed the Heavenly Tribulation, he had received a big gift package. He had just been too lazy to open it. Plus, he was worried that there wouldn’t be anything good in the package.
But perhaps he shouldn’t worry so much. After all, it was the gift package of the Heavenly Tribulation. When he thought about it that way, it sounded so majestic! What was he thinking? It must contain something powerful!
Now was the perfect time to open the package. If the package gave him something good, he wouldn’t have to spend any of his precious Acting Tough Points to upgrade the System.
It’s time to test my luck!
“System, open it!”
The System interface was filled with a white light. The big gift package turned into several bands of light, each of which flew to other grids within the System interface.
Ding! “Congratulations to the host for obtaining the Genuine Flame Devouring Wave, which is a Basic Star Rank magic art!”
Ding! “Congratulations to the host for obtaining the Genuine Six Corporeal Forms, which is a Basic Star Rank magic art!”
Ding! “Congratulations to the host for obtaining the Genuine Buddha’s Fiery Lotus, which is an Intermediate Star Rank magic art!”
Ding! “Congratulations to the host for obtaining the Genuine Secret of ‘All’ of the Nine Secrets, which is an Advanced Star Rank magic art!”
Ding! “Congratulations to the host for obtaining a Celestial Artifact Enchanting Spell!”
Xu Que was totally confused about the items that he had just received.
“God d*mn it!” he cursed. “Were all the magic arts that I learned before fake?”
