Chapter 540: I will Take Advantage of Your Suppressed Strength
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The spacious platform in the square of the Imperial Palace was overcome by an awful atmosphere!
After beheading Gong Feng decisively, Xu Que had shocked everyone with his words.
Being motivated by Xu Que’s words, all the Imperial Guards and Generals rushed up and surrounded the four elders and Shang Wu with murderous looks on their faces.
The four elders were panicking. This time, they had to deal not only with Gong Feng’s troubles, but also protect him.
However, none of them had expected a cultivator in the Five Elements Mountain could be so reckless as to kill the third Young Master of the Gong Family!
As a matter of fact, this was also due to the negligence of the Gong Family.
As a big family overseas, they knew nothing about the Five Elements Mountain except for that it was a small, deserted place with a mysterious seal and sparse Spiritual Qi. The cultivation levels of all the cultivators in this area, including the Sect Leader of the Scarlet Yang Sect, were falsely high. However, they were just weaklings, no match for overseas cultivators.
Therefore, they sent several powerhouses in the Infant Transformation Stage who they thought would be enough to defeat any powerhouse in the Five Elements Mountain. And no powerhouses in the Void Training Stage were dispatched.
But now, it turned out that they had made a mistake. Indeed, most cultivators in the Five Elements Mountain were weak. However, they had encountered Xu Que, a powerful and reckless heretic who acted arbitrarily without considering the consequences.
After killing Gong Feng, he still wanted to kill the rest of them.
“Zhuge Liang, you… are doomed! The Gong Family will keep hunting you until your death!” the elders of the Gong Family came to themselves and shouted angrily.
“Anyone who is related to you will face the most formidable revenge of the Gong Family!”
“You have nowhere to hide yourself from the Gong Family!”
Their yelling resounded in the Imperial Palace, startling many people.
Even Zi Xuan ran out, and her face was pale when she saw the headless body on the ground.
“Xu, what did you do this time?” Zi Xuan asked while delivering a message to Xu Que.
“Nothing, I’m killing several thieves. You just go back to sleep. Later, it will be bloody here, inappropriate for little kid to watch!” Xu Que turned around and replied with a smile.
Zi Xuan frowned immediately, “Just now I heard the Gong Family. Are these people from overseas?”
However, Xu Que disappeared right at that moment.
Xu Que took the newly-purchased People Killing Sword and People Killing Book with him, and replaced the sword in his hand with the Dark Heavy Buster Sword. He gave a play of the Genuine·Six Corporeal Forms instantly. Then the four elders in the Infant Transformation Stage were covered by numerous inky sword shadows.
The overwhelming and violent force, which covered the sky and the earth, pressed towards the four elders abruptly.
“Take him down!” the elders yelled frantically and fought back with their magic arts.
They knew they would be severely punished by the Gong Family for their failure to protect Gong Feng. Therefore, they could only save their lives by capturing the murderer and taking him back to the Gong Family.
The four elders in the Infant Transformation Stage who had come from overseas attacked simultaneously. Their earthshaking magic arts were so dazzling that even the Imperial Palace, which was in the gloom of night, was entirely lit up.
However, the highest cultivation level among them was Level 6 of the Infant Transformation Stage. Their physiques, which had been strengthened with ordinary arts, were not as strong as the Sea Tribe. Therefore, they were quite vulnerable in the face of Xu Que’s magic arts.
After all, this time, the Genuine·Six Corporeal Forms used by Xu Que was a genuine Star-Rank magic art. Its strength had been remarkably enhanced by the twofold strength bonus of the People Killing Sword, which he had obtained by killing Gong Feng just now.
The boundless sword shadows fell, triggering a big explosion. All the bricks and stones on the ground of the Imperial Place were shattered by the explosion, which also broke apart the magic arts of the four elders and knocked them back forcefully.
“Crush Magic Arts with Overwhelming Strength? How could this be possible?” one elder said in terror.
They couldn’t believe a cultivator in the Five Elements Mountain could use such a formidable magic art, with a physique so strong that their magic arts were broken by his brutal force.
“This is not Crush Magic Arts with Overwhelming Strength! You should call it Create Miracle with Tremendous Strength! Just die!” Xu Que snorted. At the same time, he gave a play of the Walk of Yu and created bolts of lightning.
Bang! He broke the sound barrier, which led to a deafening noise in the air. He rushed up and swung down the Dark Heavy Buster Sword abruptly.
The Genuine·Flame Devouring Wave created formless airwaves that slashed one elder into two directly.
“What?” the rest three elders were shocked immediately.
What… is this formidable force?
How could it be so powerful?
“Alas, you are too weak! Your magic arts are okay, however, compared to the Sea Tribe, you’re far behind in magic arts and physique!” Xu Que sighed and shook his head.
He had thought these elders would be very powerful. However, they were still no match for the Geoduck of the Sea Tribe!
Hearing the name “Sea Tribe,” the other three elders were stunned immediately. “Did you also kill a person from the Sea Tribe?”
“That’s right! I killed several people of the Sea Tribe a few days ago, and they were cooked and eaten by us. They were quite chewy!” Xu Que smiled slightly.
Hearing that, the three elders’ faces darkened. Then they made eye contact.
One of them said in a low voice, “We should avoid close combat with him, for we really are at a disadvantage!”
“Exactly, the Sea Tribe people, who are born with strong physiques, were even killed by him. Our advantage lies in our magic arts, so we will avoid close combat!”
“Unfortunately, our strength is greatly suppressed in this place, so our magic arts aren’t powerful at all! Those who have a strong physique would have an advantage here!”
Hearing that, Xu Que was stunned. “What do you mean by that? Are you implying that you would be more powerful than me if you weren’t influenced by the Seal of the Five Elements Mountain?”
One elder snorted immediately, “In this place, the physique advantage of the Sea Tribe is not suppressed, obviously. However, our advantage lies in our magic arts, which were seriously suppressed by the seal. Therefore, without the seal, we could kill you with just one move!”
“As you said, it seems it isn’t fair to you!” Xu Que nodded thoughtfully.
A flash of joy appeared in the eyes of the elders. They had tried to dare Xu Que to fight in another place that wasn’t influenced by the Seal of the Five Elements Mountain so that they could kill Xu Que together with their complete strength.
Hearing that, the Imperial Guards and Generals in the Imperial Palace changed their facial expressions and started to worry.
“General Zhuge, please don’t listen to them! They’ll be eliminated soon, you can’t …” for fear that Xu Que could fall into the trap, one General shouted hurriedly.
Hardly had he finished his words when Xu Que rushed up abruptly. Whoosh!
Bang! Then, in the dazzling sword’s shadows, one elder was split into two by the airwave of the inky sword before he had time to react. His blood turned into mist in the air and then evaporated.
Xu Que stopped his attack and looked at the remaining two elders with a radiant smile. Then he said, “I’ll take advantage of your suppressed strength! What are you going to do? Also, I always ask one question on occasions like this—are you angry? Are you angry? I just want to know whether you’re angry!”
