Chapter 584: Not Challenging At All

The tranquil water in the lake completely froze in an instant!
The air in the surrounding area became stagnant for a moment and then condensed into clumps of white gas, which covered the whole courtyard like a white mist.
The warm spring day had suddenly turned into a chilly winter day.
The change was so fast that no one had enough time to react.
Everyone was immediately dumbfounded. Their frightened eyes focused on the dead man’s head, which caused great terror in their hearts.
A dead man’s head could apparently be very powerful after emerging from stone!
“My God!” one of the extremely shocked people said. “This is amazing!”
“He’s long dead, but he can still influence this world after the reappearance of his body!”
“It’s just a head! I’m afraid that the entire body of this man could turn this area into a world of ice and snow!”
“Even the powerhouses at the Form Synthesis Stage don’t have such horrible strength! Could it be that he was an ancient cultivator at the Crossing Calamity Stage?”
“I guess he was at the Mahayana Stage! After so many years, his head is still powerful, which can be realized by a celestial! Cultivators at the Mahayana Stage are only within a stone’s throw to the Celestial Stage!”
When people perceived that this dead man’s head was not dangerous, they started to discuss and guess the cultivation level of its former owner.
Xu Que, who sat on the pavilion with crossed legs, rocked back and forth calmly.
Liu Jingning was also shocked. Suddenly, she turned to Xu Que as if she remembered something. “You . . .” she said in surprise, “knew there was a head hidden in that stone, right?”
“Of course. Otherwise, how could I give it away?” Xu Que smiled arrogantly, narrowing his eyes.
Then, he mocked the woman of the Li Family, who stood not far away. “Hey, you spent 20,000 high quality Spirit Stones to buy a dead man’s head. Are you surprised or happy?”
“Shut up!” the woman of the Li Family shouted, glaring at Xu Que angrily.
Although this head had some research value, it definitely not worth 20,000 high quality Spirit Stones!
The bodies of ancient powerhouses were not rare in the World of the Cultivators, which could be found in some mysterious areas. However, nothing useful was found through the research of those bodies.
What’s more, this was just a head! The woman of the Li Family had absolutely suffered great losses.
“No, I refuse to shut up! I just want to say: Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah! If you’re not a coward, just beat me!” Xu Que continued to mock at her by openly laughing.
Seeing his mean expression, the onlookers really wanted to beat him.
The woman of the Li family was so annoyed that she was about to spit blood. Her body trembled and her eyes filled with rage and murder.
However, the big shots and some responsive sovereigns had fixed their eyes on Xu Que. Their eyes were full of admiration, greed, and excitement.
Before cutting the stone, Xu Que had mocked the woman of the Li family for buying a dead man’s head with 20,000 high quality Spirit Stones!
People had initially thought Xu Que was just comparing the stone to a dead man’s head, so none of them cared about his comment.
However there was really a dead man’s head inside, which was thought provoking.
Only a fool couldn’t figure out what people weren’t saying!
Maybe this young sovereign can really look through stones!
If we could capture him and steal that magic art, we’ll always be successful stone-cutting in the future!
At the thought of this, even the big shots couldn’t keep their seats anymore.
After all, this miraculous ability was even tempting for powerhouses at the Form Synthesis Stage!
Liu Jingning sensed the eagerness in everyone to capture Xu Que. She opened her red lips slightly and delivered a message to Xu Que. “Little brat, the only thing you can do now is prepare to flee.”
However, her message was ignored by Xu Que, who didn’t reply but sat there as cool as a cucumber.
The next moment, he shouted at the onlookers arrogantly by crossing his arms. “What are you looking at? If you want to talk to me, just talk to me; otherwise, stop looking at me! I hate being looked at like this! Damn! I know I’m handsome, but it’s really tiresome being looked at by people like you every day!”
Are you feeling bored?
Is it really a good time to act tough? This guy is really poor at adapting to changing circumstances!
Liu Jingning almost went insane because of her anger. She wanted to gouge out Xu Que’s brain and check its ingredients.
Nobody responded to Xu Que. The whole area was in an inexplicable silence.
With sinister motives in their hearts, everyone planned to exclusively own Xu Que’s miraculous ability of looking through stones.
“Alas, break is over!” Xu Que stood and stretched as if he were currently alone. “It’s time to display my real skills! Let me see which stone will be cut first!”
Along with his movements, some of the onlookers moved forward a bit placidly. It seemed their actions were quite casual. Actually, they were trying to encircle the pavilion where Xu Que was to prevent him from escaping!
Liu Jingning’s face darkened anxiously. She was considering whether she should reveal her identity as the Holy Virgin of the Utopia Faction. After pondering it for a short while, she dismissed the idea.
Although she was the Holy Virgin of the Utopia Faction, in front of big families and sects like the Jiang Family, the Gong Family and the Illusionary Flower & Moon Sect, the Utopia Faction was nothing! She couldn’t scare these people off.
“Oh, this stone is quite handsome! Let me see what’s hiding inside!” Xu Que murmured to himself. His voice was quite high, almost deliberately, as if he wanted to be heard by the onlookers.
He took out the X-ray Perspective Machine to scan the stone with the infrared ray. The next moment, he said, “Wow, I see a bronze fragment with ancient characters. It’s probably an ancient magic art!”
After saying that, Xu Que pretended to be pleasantly surprised, then he grabbed a jade knife from the stone table and slashed at the stone directly.
Bang! Immediately, a bronze fragment fell out from the stone.
The fragment was quite rusty. However, thickly-dotted ancient characters were faintly visible on it. Before people started to check the fragment with their Soul Strength, Xu Que put the fragment into his System Package by waving his hand!
The onlookers frowned immediately, then they fixed their eyes on the X-ray Perspective Machine in Xu Que’s hand.
All of them had figured out that the red light of that machine helped Xu Que look through the stones. He could know everything inside the stone by just scanning them.
“Boring! The stone-cutting is not challenging at all! Really boring, and I don’t want to play anymore!”
Xu Que pretended to be bored to death, then he raised the X-ray Perspective Machine in his hand and shouted at the onlookers again. “My fellow cultivators, now the Exploding Heavens Faction is launching a new product! You see this item in my hand, right? Yes, this is the Invincible Heavenly Titanium Alloy Dog Eye of the Exploding Heavens Faction, which can look through ancient stones and check the content inside. Now, it is selling at a low price. The base price is just 100,000 high quality, Best-grade Spirit Stones! IOUs and credit sales are unacceptable. The one who offers the highest price will own this miraculous product!”
