When Xu Que finished his words, the Geoduck became speechless!
At this moment, he realized he had done something stupid.
Before, he had thought he could threaten Xu Que with the power of his tribe and deter these people from killing him.
Even Xu Que was worried; if he couldn’t locate the Geoduck tribe and eliminate them all, he might have caused calamity for all people in the Five Elements Mountain.
But now, the Geoduck had revealed something in order to protect himself that had been captured by Xu Que.
What the Geoduck had said revealed that this place was still unknown to people of his tribe, who even didn’t know that the Geoduck and his underlings were in the Five Elements Mountain.
This was also the reality. The Geoduck and his underlings had gone out for an outing. They had been too far away from home and came across a storm in the vast sea that blew them to the Five Elements Mountain.
Therefore, not only did his tribe not know they were in the Five Elements Mountain, even the Geoduck and his underlings needed to spend some time figuring out the way to get back!
“No, wait! I didn’t say that! What I said was wrong! The people of my tribe know we are in the Five Elements Mountain. You can’t kill me!” the Geoduck was flustered and corrected himself hastily.
However, Xu Que, who had seen through his lies, shook his head and said with a smile, “Actually, even if the people of your tribe know you are here, I’ll still kill you. The Exploding Heavens Faction can spend a little bit more time to kill all the Geoducks in the sea to spare any later troubles, it’s not a big deal!”
“Are… you going to kill everyone in our tribe?” the Geoduck asked in shock.
He hadn’t expected Xu Que to be so bold as to form a plan to eliminate his tribe.
“That’s impossible! In our tribe, there are two elders at the Void Training Stage. We even have a Patriarch at the Form Synthesis Stage, although he has been in secluded cultivation for many years. He will definitely stop you if you dare to attack our tribe!” the Geoduck said.
Hearing that, Xu Que also became speechless.
Two elders at the Void Training Stage and a Patriarch at the Form Synthesis Stage?
Damn! I didn’t expect the Geoduck Tribe to be so powerful!
However, this also supported Xu Que’s previous assumptions. In the overseas area, there were very many formidable powerhouses, and the Five Elements Mountains would definitely be outnumbered.
For so many years, no cultivators in the Five Elements Mountain could reach the Void Training Stage, let alone the Form Synthesis Stage!
No wonder the Sea Tribe could look down upon the cultivators in the Five Elements Mountain after their arrival here.
“If you let me go, I’ll forget about this and never trouble you in future.” At this moment, the Geoduck made a promise.
Many people in the area began to waver.
After hearing there were elders in the Void Training Stage in the Sea Tribe, these people were already shocked. When they heard that there was a Patriarch in the Form Synthesis Stage, they were totally dumbfounded.
They had only heard of legendary powerhouses in the Form Synthesis Stage in rumors and never had a chance to see one with their eyes.
That formidable powerhouse might destroy the Five Nations with one move if he comes for revenge!
“Lord Li Bai, just… let him go, okay?” The General of the Imperial Guard couldn’t help giving his suggestion. They didn’t dare to provoke such a powerful enemy!
Even the people of the Mysterious Clan started to waver and worry.
The Geoduck was good at waiting for the right time. Seizing the opportunity, he said immediately, “Please be reassured. This time, I know there are numerous powerhouses in the Five Elements Mountain. After leaving here, I will never come back! I hereby take an oath with the Inner Demons!”
His words were quite weighty. His oath with the Inner Demons reassured many people.
People started to talk about this in low voices.
However, Xu Que could still hear what they were saying, which was nothing but freeing the Geoduck.
“I hereby take an oath! If you let me go, I will never step foot in the Five Elements Mountain!” the Geoduck made his promise with the Inner Demons.
People fixed their eyes on Xu Que instantly.
After all, the one in this area who would decide the life or death of the Geoduck was Xu Que.
“Lord Li Bai, this relates to the survival of all people in the Five Nations. Please stay calm!” the General of the Imperial Guard with an extremely sincere expression delivered a message to Xu Que cautiously.
Looking at Xu Que calmly, Madam Ya said softly, “Lord Li, it’s up to you. I will support any decision you make!”
Su Ling’er also stepped out and said, “Lord Li, since Sun Wukong is not here, you can make the decision!”
Xu Que nodded his head calmly.
However, his expression was quite odd. It seemed that he was quite calm, but he kept staring at the Geoduck with an imperceptible smile.
Many people started to worry. Is… he going to kill this Geoduck?
That will endanger all people in the Five Nations!
“Although I really want to kill him, I also know clearly that all of you wish for me to let him go, since this relates to the lives of numerous people in the Five Nations! So I agree to let it go for the sake of all people in this world!”
Hearing his words, all people were stunned.
Does Lord Li agree?
My gosh! The sun has risen! Lord Li is so sensible and considerate to set the Geoduck free!
“We really appreciate your kindness, Lord Li Bai!”
“Lord Li Bai is so nice and cares about the common people in this world!”
Many people were touched and let out a sigh of relief, as if they had been revived.
Finally, being watched by many, the Geoduck stood up slowly and walked out of the Imperial Palace and the Imperial City.
However, people still fixed their eyes on Xu Que, for they were afraid that Xu Que would back out and kill the Geoduck suddenly.
“Hell, don’t look at me like that! I’m different from other members of the Exploding Heavens Faction. I always keep my word. Since I’ve agreed to let him go, I will definitely set him free,” Xu Que said justly and severely.
“Oh, Lord Li, don’t get us wrong! We didn’t mean that.”
“Right! We totally trust Lord Li’s personality!” people laughed embarrassedly.
However, none of them suspected that Xu Que had summoned his Thunder Illusion Body to follow the Geoduck stealthily.
At this moment, after leaving the Imperial City, the Geoduck took out a translucent pearl-like pill and threw it into his mouth, then changed into the appearance of a human being. However, his face was still very pale.
“Ha! Those stupid maggots! They’ve let me go at last!” he snorted and absorbed the pearl-like pill immediately, which helped him recover from his wounds slowly.
After that, he looked around warily, then started to dash away with a cold smile on his face.
When he was far away from the Imperial City, he started to shout without restraint to vent the grievance and anger in his heart.
“I took an oath with the Inner Demons that I will never step into the Five Elements Mountain, but I didn’t say I wouldn’t send people here. The Five Elements Mountain, I will turn it into the No Man’s Mountain! When I go back to my tribe, I will definitely wash away my humiliation today with the blood of those people!”
Just at this moment, a bolt of lightning struck directly on him.
The Geoduck had only recovered a little bit and could barely walk, so he couldn’t evade the lightning at all. He was hit directly and fell to the ground heavily.
“Lightning out of the blue? What’s going on? Who attacked me secretly?” With fresh blood on the corner of his mouth, the Geoduck stood up immediately and started to look around nervously.
“What a pity! Hello again.” At this moment, a voice came in from behind the Geoduck.
“What?” The Geoduck changed its expression and turned around abruptly.
He saw a familiar face with a despicable smile appear behind him. It was Xu Que’s Thunder Illusion Body taking the appearance of Li Bai.
All of a sudden, the Geoduck’s expression became rigid, because his heart had been penetrated by a sharp sword, and his blood was dripping from the tip of the sword!
At the same time, Xu Que’s real body, which was also under the appearance of Li Bai, was smiling slightly in a bedchamber that had been built temporarily.
The Thunder Illusion Body’s action was controlled by his Soul Strength. Therefore, he knew everything about the death of the Geoduck.
As he had expected, the Geoduck had harbored resentment in his heart and planned to send people to avenge him when he made it back. Luckily, this trouble had been solved by his Thunder Illusion Body. The body of the Geoduck had even been thrown away to feed the wild dogs.
“Lord Li, why are you smiling?” At this moment, Xu Que heard a soft, tender, and attractive voice.
Xu Que came to himself and almost forgot he was sharing the bedroom with Madam Ya.
He reached an arm around Madam Ya’s small waist and smiled, “I remembered I used to compose poems and couplets together with you in the moonlight, so I couldn’t help smiling.”
Madam Ya flushed immediately. With a bashful gaze, she said attractively, “I also miss those nights very much. I wonder whether Lord Li could stay here to compose poems and couplets with me tonight.”
“Tonight, we will not compose poems. I want to teach you a Kung Fu move,” Xu Que said with a smile.
Madam Ya was stunned a bit and asked, “What move does Lord Li want to teach me?”
“Of course, the legendary breast… no, Buddha’s Palm!” Xu Que said with a smile. Meanwhile, his hands, which were filled with the energy of justice, were reaching out towards the big and soft bosom of Madam Ya.
“Oh, no…” After shouting in surprise, Madam Ya patted Xu Que attractively.
Soon, the bedchamber was filled with all kinds of gasps, tempting and evocative.
