“How… could that be?”
Everyone was shocked, horrified and incredulous!
As a ruler in Level 4 of the Infant Transformation Stage, Xu Que’s attack was so destructive that six powerhouses in Level 6 and Level 7 of the Infant Transformation Stage had been killed instantaneously.
This kind of strength seemed to be unheard of in the same stage, which was shocking!
Liu Jingning was also dumbfounded. Her small mouth was slightly open, showing her surprise.
She had learned from Jiang Hongyan that Xu Que was extraordinarily gifted and had the potential to become a Holy Son in future, but she had never expected that Xu Que would reach the Infant Transformation Stage in such a short period or that his strength would be so formidable.
His attack just now had been strong enough to be compared to that of the cultivators at Level 9 of the Infant Transformation Stage. And if he used all of his strength, maybe he could challenge the cultivators in the Void Training Stage!
“Awesome, little brat! Your killing was so exhilarating!” Buttface shouted loudly with shiny eyes. He had regained his arrogant attitude.
At the same time, the warning tone of the System was also echoing in Xu Que’s mind. The People Killing Book and the People Killing Sword had reached the 30th layer, the highest, which could enhance his strength remarkably!
Xu Que looked down at the people in the stone quarry and asked in a deep voice, “Anyone else?”
“Oh, no! Let’s get out of this place quickly!”
People in the stone quarry were scared out of their minds and started to escape in all directions.
Even the Jiang family’s powerhouses in the Infant Transformation Stage had been killed instantly! The rest of the people had lost their courage to fight.
“It’s too late to escape now!” Xu Que smiled coldly. Three mystical fires appeared in his hand suddenly, floating in front of him and giving off a violent and horrible energy.
Liu Jingning changed her expression immediately, then dashed over and stood in front of Xu Que.
“Xu Que, don’t do that! There are many apprentices of the big sects and families in this area. If you kill them all, you will really become the enemy of the whole world!”
“So what?” Xu Que smiled and said calmly, “I was doomed to be the enemy of the whole world from the moment I decided to help Jiang Hongyan!”
“There is no but!” Xu Que interrupted Liu Jingning directly, then moved his body, squinted his eyes, and began to brag, “The Jiang family and the Gong family are nothing compared to the Exploding Heavens Faction! Liu Jingning, you know nothing about the strength of the Exploding Heavens Faction! Our motto is to kill anyone who stands in our way, even God, Buddha, or Heaven!”
If a god stops you, you will kill the god, right?
If a Buddha stops you, you will kill the Buddha, right?
If Heaven stops you, you will kill Heaven, right?
Liu Jingning was in a daze instantly. It was hard to believe that such rebellious and ambitious words could be uttered by such a cultured and elegant young man.
Is he really going to do this because of Jiang Hongyan?
Liu Jingning’s heart was full of shock, admiration, and even a tad bit of jealousy.
Ding! “Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for acting tough successfully. The reward is 410 Acting Tough Points!”
Ding! “Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for acting tough successfully. The reward is 430 Acting Tough Points!”
The System’s warning tone echoed in Xu Que’s mind.
He smiled quietly, then put his palms together to melt the three mystical fires in front of his body into a mesmerizing three-color fire lotus.
“Xu Que of the Exploding Heavens Faction, don’t do anything stupid! I’m an apprentice of the Heaven Secret Pavilion!” a loud roar sounded from the stone field at this moment, uttered by the same man who had cut the stone just before.
Then all the others began to cry out, “I’m an apprentice of the Eight Directions Vermilion Bird Pavilion, and we’ve never met before! If you kill me, the Eight Directions Four Image will hunt you until your death!”
“True, I’m the apprentice of the Eight Directions White Tiger Sect, you can’t kill us!”
“And I’m from the Gong family, you don’t have to mess with us!”
A lot of people had extraordinary backgrounds, otherwise they wouldn’t have been allowed to enter the Jiang family’s stone quarry!
Seeing that Xu Que was really trying to kill them, all these people were flustered and shouted as they ran away.
They pinned their last hopes on stating their backgrounds so that Xu Que might be terrified by the strength of their families or sects.
Xu laughed out loud, “You’ve asked me to act tough twice for the same issue! Okay, let me tell you, today I want to kill people of big sects and big families like you. In the face of our Exploding Heavens Faction, you are nothing! And you have nothing to support your arrogance!”
Before finishing his words, Xu Que waved his hand and threw the three-color fire lotus abruptly.
“No!” the crowd cried out in surprise. Before the arrival of the fire lotus, they had been awed by its horrible momentum. Their blood was frozen and they could feel chills starting from their toes.
They could smell death!
However, the fire lotus still appeared above them. The seductive flame petals blossomed like summer flowers and gave off a dazzling light.
An earth-shaking bang burst in the stone quarry. Violent energy swept out, as if it could devour everything!
Thanks to the power bonus of the Secret of “All” and the People Killing Book reaching the 30th layer, the destructive power of the three-color fire lotus had exceeded beyond his imagination.
“Sh*t!” Xu Que was also scared, so he immediately grabbed Buttface and Liu Jingning and flew high into the sky with lightning under his feet. They were still almost hit by the sea of fire!
The bursting radius of the fire lotus was really horrible, over ten times larger than the explosion in the Bright Moon Hotel!
Dozens of men and women in the stone quarry were killed instantly without leaving a drop of blood, for all of them were directly evaporated in the sea of fire.
Liu Jingning was completely shocked.
Now the stone quarry below them had been turned into a purgatory. She suspected that if she had been in the quarry, she would also have been killed or seriously wounded.
“Little brat, some of them have escaped!” Buttface said and pointed to a distant place.
A few people had escaped at the very beginning, so they hadn’t been swallowed by the fire lotus. Now, they were running away crazily.
“Stop them!” Liu Jingning shouted immediately, even wanting to kill them herself.
“No, come on!” Xu Que dragged Liu Jingning away immediately and said in disgust, “Why do you want to do that? As the saying goes, forgive others whenever you can! We should have a bottom-line! It’s so cruel to kill them all! Just let them go! This is a good thing!”
“What?” Hearing this, Liu Jingning widened her eyes and was so mad she could spit. “Do you know the consequences of letting them go?”
“I know! As an upright, open, and aboveboard man, I will not be terrified of their revenge!” Xu Que said passionately while he patted his chest.
Are you kidding me? If I kill them all, no one in this world will learn my reputation!
If I don’t let them go, how would I get the big families and sects to come seek revenge against me?
If they don’t come, how could I, as the King of Tough-Acting, act tough and cause trouble?
Liu Jingning said coldly, “If you insist on doing this, they will go back to get reinforcements! If powerhouses at the Form Synthesis Stage come for you, you’ll face certain death, and no one will be able to protect you anymore!”
“Don’t worry! If you’re afraid, just don’t follow us!” Xu Que said with a smile. He wasn’t nervous at all, for he had prepared a plan in his head.
If an old monster in the Form Synthesis Stage really comes to me, I could just escape. Anyway, this is nothing for me, since I have the assistance of the Human-Skin Mask!
However, before Liu Jingning’s reply, Buttface came forward and gave a thumbs-up to Xu Que. “Little brat, what you said is correct! I am also not afraid, but I remember I have to deal with an important issue. I have to go now. Remember, the green mountains do not change, the clear water keeps flowing, we will meet if fate beholds… Hey, what are you doing? Let me go! Let me go! Don’t drag my collar!”
