Chapter 554: The Rule of No Fighting doesn’t Exist!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Han Guoqiang, Han Guosheng, and all the others were stunned!
Just a moment ago, this weak-looking young man was stuttering, saying “I need to go now.” Now, he had suddenly become a brute. First, he spat on Han Guosheng’s face. Then, he cursed and started provoking the elites who supported Gong Yue to fight against him. He arrogantly claimed that he could fight them alone. It turned out that this “weak” guy was putting on an act this whole time!
He has no shame!
Sticky saliva was sliding down Han Guosheng’s face. He was beyond irritated. He was Captain of the Guard of Tian Luo City and was at level six of the Infant Transformation Stage. No one had ever dared to insult him like this! It was outrageous!
“Kill him! Kill him now!” Han Guosheng shouted, pointing at Xu Que.
The anger in his heart could only be eliminated by seeing Xu Que get cut into one thousand pieces. However, no one moved. Everyone knew that if they fought inside the hotel, they would be sentenced to death.
Several sovereigns standing in the back started to sneer at Xu Que.
“We were almost cheated by you, you malicious and treacherous brat!”
“However, it doesn’t matter if you are acting or not. Whether you are coward or a treacherous villain, you will face certain death today!”
“A villain like you can’t get away with offending Miss Gong Yue and Lord Jiang Shan!”
All the elites were smiling coldly. Their eyes were filled with murderous intent.
When Xu Que was still acting like a weakling, the elites were merely under the orders of Jiang Shan to kill Xu Que. They were not actually angry with him. However, they were now annoyed because they were fooled by Xu Que’s innocent appearance. Their faces were full of fury.
“You’re all just a bunch of trash!” Xu Que sneered. “You guys all have higher cultivation levels than me, yet you can’t even gather up ten people to fight me! Come one! Just try to gang up on me! My Kirin Arms hunger for battle!”
I am so aggressive, domineering and b*tchy!
Xu Que and the group of elites were making such a ruckus that they began to attract the attention of everyone within earshot. The other sovereigns in and near the lobby began to watch the scene expectantly.
When Xu Que was acting like a coward, no one was interested in what was going on. However, seeing that this guy had an aggressive side, everyone’s interest was piqued. It was impressive that he wanted to fight ten opponents by himself.
“He is just a cultivator at level four of the Infant Transformation Stage. He is being too reckless!”
“This is turning out to be interesting!”
“I’m excited to see what happens!”
“He’s got a big mouth, that’s for sure. Fighting is prohibited in the Bright Moon Hotel. Anyone who violates this rule will be killed on the spot.”
The onlookers near the lobby were wagging their tongues and prepared to enjoy the fun. Even people who had rooms on the upper floors were attracted by the noise in the lobby.
Jiang Shan and Gong Yue were still at the beginning of their walk up to the ninth floor of the Earth Section. Only the most powerful sovereigns of the Infant Transformation Stage were allowed on this floor. Therefore, cultivators staying on this floor were leading figures among the other cultivators in the Infant Transformation Stage.
“That guy is so weird and erratic,” Gong Yue said, furrowing her eyebrows. “And he has a trace of energy from the Gong family. Where did he even come from?”
Gong Yue glanced back at the lobby, looking at Xu Que. Jiang Shan also glanced back at him, his expression indifferent.
“Don’t worry about it. He’s just going to die anyway.”
Jiang Shan was always simple and crude. It didn’t matter how weird Xu Que was or whether or not Xu Que had killed members of the Gong Family. Jiang Shan had found an excuse to kill him, so he was going to die. Simple as that.
Jiang Shan was a true powerhouse who preferred killing Xu Que over letting him escape. He was uninhibited and fearless, being as he was backed by the Jiang family, one of the overlords of the East Continent.
There were a few people with rooms reserved in the Heaven Section of the hotel who were startled by the noise coming from the lobby. These people were all holy sons and holy virgins at the Void Training Stage.
As the Holy Sons and Holy Virgins, these people enjoyed a position of dominance amongst the World of Cultivators. These people were often the future heirs of influential families or sects. People like this had such great power that they could do anything they wanted within the East Continent.
Holy Sons and Holy Virgins seldom visited the Bright Moon Hotel. Though, occasionally, a group of these powerful cultivators would come to the hotel to steal a bit of leisure time from their busy lives.
“Interesting!” exclaimed a man staying in the Heaven Section. “The Bright Moon Hotel hasn’t been this lively for many years!”
The man’s eyes were large and deep. He had a strand of golden light between his eyebrows that resembled a rune mark and was an inherent birthmark. The mark gave off a formidable aura.
Beside him was an extremely beautiful and graceful lady. She resembled the Fairy of Nine Heavens who came down to earth. She looked toward the lobby. When she caught sight of Xu Que, she gave a faint smile.
“Yes, this must be the first instance in several centuries that someone has caused such a scene. I have forgotten the last time a person stirred up so much attention here,” the beautiful lady said.
Another lady was beside them as well. Her face was veiled and she was dressed all in white.
“I met that young man on my way here. I didn’t expect him to be able to enter this hotel,” the lady in white said with a slight smile.
This lady in white was, in fact, the powerful lady at the Void Training Stage that Xu Que had met earlier that day in the burnt forest.
The handsome man and the beautiful lady were shocked at her words.
“Qin Ji,” The man said, smiling, “the Bright Moon Hotel is protected by your Illusionary Flower & Moon Sect. That young man is causing trouble. Aren’t you going to deal with him personally?”
“Xiao Taixuan, is the Eight Directions Green Dragon Sect mocking my Illusionary Flower & Moon Sect? That young man is too weak to cause trouble in this building!”
“Please, you two,” the beautiful lady said. “We seldom see each other. Is it really necessary for both of you to trade barbs like this? Please don’t forget why we are here today!”
“Miss Han Ying is correct!” Xiao Taixuan exclaimed with a smile and a nod. “We should focus on the business at hand! Jiang Hongyan has been missing ever since her departure from the Bright Moon Hotel. Have you two received any news of her?”
“My people managed to follow her for hundreds of miles,” said Qin Ji, “but she managed to kill them all. I conducted an investigation today but found out nothing. Han Ying, your Heaven Secret Pavilion has a knack for predicting the Heaven’s will. You have many apprentices in your sect, don’t you? Do you have any news about her?”
“Not much, I am afraid,” Han Ying said as she shook her head. “The only two things I am sure of is that Jiang Hongyan has come here for her 69 Heavenly Tribulations and that she is not planning to seize the Jiang family’s power. Of course, I assume that she is also planning to participate in the Mystery Land Trial in the South Continent.”
“It seems she has obtained new fragments of her incomplete magic art. If this were not the case, she would not be ready for the 69 Heavenly Tribulations.”
“She must be stopped. If she manages to finish the Mystery Land Trial and complete her magic art, no one will be able to stop her!”
“There are countless geniuses among our peers. However, there is no one who is as talented in the art of performance as Jiang Hongyan. Her cultivation is far ahead of ours. If she has already completed her magic art, I am afraid that it is more than likely that she has already reached the highest level of the Form Synthesis Stage, or perhaps an even higher stage.”
“Don’t worry. The Gong family, the Bai family, and even the Jiang family are looking for her. Together with our sects, we can locate her soon.”
Meanwhile, Xu Que and the group of elites were in a stalemate. No one was attacking each other. The sovereigns just sneered a Xu Que.
“Do you plan to annoy us so that we will break the rules of the hotel by attacking you first? Did you think that we would be so dull as to get ourselves killed by the experts of the Bright Moon Hotel? Stop your daydreaming!”
“Do you think we can be fooled by your petty trick of threatening to kill us with a borrowed knife?” one of the sovereigns said sarcastically.
As a sovereign, one was expected to be clearheaded and rational. Even Han Guosheng, who had been spat on by Xu Que, restrained his fury by ordering his men to merely surround Xu Que. He didn’t dare command his men to attack.
The hotel staff had made it quite clear that there were a lot of powerhouses at level seven and eight of the Void Training Stage in the Bright Moon Hotel and that anyone who dared to fight in the building would be killed instantly by them.
“You cowards are in no position for me to tell me what to do with this borrowed knife,” Xu Que said. “The Bright Moon Hotel is just a hotel, which means nothing! To me, the rule of no fighting in this building doesn’t exist!”
Xu Que waved the Dark Heavy Buster Sword in his hand, creating a powerful airwave. He then dashed towards Han Guosheng.
