All through the night, Xu Que kept producing three-color fire lotuses without any pause, and threw them into the storage rings one second before their explosion.
Seeing so many storage rings in front of them, Liu Jingning and Jiang Hongyan became speechless and very serious.
This bizarre idea was unprecedented. No one ever put such powerful magic art into storage rings.
Liu Jingning and Jiang Hongyan were shocked. They knew clearly that only those who could perfectly control the magic arts could realize what Xu Que had finished, which had extremely strict requirements upon the Soul Strength.
This was impossible even for Liu Jingning and Jiang Hongyan!
Maybe powerhouses at the Form Synthesis Stage could do so. However, cultivators at the Form Synthesis Stage couldn’t do that for they always despised such methods.
However, what confused Liu Jingning and Jiang Hongyan was how Xu Que would use those storage rings after putting so many three-color fire lotuses in them.
If he detonated them after tossing them out, those watchful cultivators would use their defense arts immediately, which would impair the damage of the three-color fire lotuses remarkably.
But now Xu Que was still caught up in making the fire lotuses. He became more and more delighted. Moreover, he had activated the Function of Automatic Recovery, so he would never get tired or run out of True Core Strength and the Mystical Fires.
Liu Jingning and Jiang Hongyan were surprised by this scene. However, no matter how confused they were, they couldn’t ask and interrupt Xu Que.
After feeling safe, Buttface also walked back shaking his head. “This guy is totally insane! If he just tosses all these storage rings out, I don’t believe they’ll cause any damage to those people!”
When dawn faintly lit the sky, more and more cultivators had arrived outside the Celestial Burial Valley.
Finally, when the sun rose, a large crowd of people dashed over from afar like black clouds.
Thousands of cultivators, who gave off horrible, fearful auras, headed for this area riding the flying swords. At first glance they seemed like millions of troops from heaven.
Elders at the Void Training Stage of all families and sects with high statuses stood in the front.
However, all of them were shocked when they saw the powerful spell filled with black flames outside the Celestial Burial Valley.
The entire spell was filled with different colors. An enormous light screen blocked the inlet of the Celestial Burial Spell. Behind the light screen, it seemed there was a sea of black flames. Countless ghosts made of black flames floated around. However, they couldn’t see what was happening in the spell.
“Is . . . this an Expert Spell?” Jiang Yushu, the Grand Elder of the Jiang Family was totally surprised.
“Who did this? To set up an Expert Spell here is really a reckless waste of grain! It’s absurd!” a powerhouse of the Gong Family angrily declared with furrowed eyebrows.
“The one who set up this spell is a total lunatic!”
“This guy is absurd! An Expert Spell wasted! What a pity!”
“D*mn! Even our Heavy Sword Sect doesn’t have an Expert Spell!”
“Could it have been set up by Jiang Hongyan? But how could she have an Expert Spell?”
People at the rear part of the crowd spoke about this Expert Spell. They were shocked and aggrieved by the spell.
The cultivators sent to spy on Jiang Hongyan soon gave reports to their families and sects. Again, their reports surprised the latecomers.
This spell was set up by a sovereign at the Infant Transformation Stage! Apparently, he was trying to help Jiang Hongyan.
“Is it for real?” several powerhouses asked in surprise. How could a sovereign at the Infant Transformation Stage have an Expert Spell? It was impossible even for a Holy Son to have an Expert Spell!
“It is absolutely true! That guy spoke with Dong Genji, the Head of the Carefree Building, and said was Wang Sicong of the Exploding Heavens Faction!”
“Exploding Heavens Faction? Again?” Several powerhouses who participated in the Stone-Cutting Convention frowned.
“What’s more, Liu Jingning, the Holy Virgin of the Utopia Faction, is also in the spell.”
“What?” Hearing that, four powerhouses at the Void Training Stage of the Utopia Faction couldn’t keep their seats anymore.
They already knew that Liu Jingning and Jiang Hongyan used to be friends. But now the news that Liu Jingning was still in the spell could get the Utopia Faction involved in this issue!
All at once, an Elder at the Void Training Stage stepped forward and, staring at the spell, shouted, “Holy Virgin, are you going to betray our faction?”
In the spell, Xu Que had already stopped his preparation. After one night’s hard work, he’d managed to produce over one hundred three-color fire lotuses, then he’d put all of them into over 100 storage rings respectively.
He wouldn’t have stopped if he hadn’t sensed the arrival of the powerhouses outside the spell.
The next moment, they heard the yell of the Utopia Faction’s powerhouse.
Liu Jingning smiled wryly. “It’s time for me to go.”
She wouldn’t mind staying here to help Jiang Hongyan if it were possible. However, as the Holy Virgin of the Utopia Faction, she couldn’t do that; otherwise, the Utopia Faction would be implicated. After all, the big families and sects in the East Continent were going to kill Jiang Hongyan this time.
“Just go! My Heavenly Tribulation is coming. You shouldn’t be here.” Jiang Hongyan calmly stared at Xu Que. It was implied that she hoped he specifically could leave this place to avoid being implicated.
“Right! You heard that? Just go. This is not the place for you to be!” Xu Que played dumb by staring at Buttface and Liu Jingning. Meanwhile, he took out the spell flag and prepared to send them out by opening the spell.
“I agree with you!” Buttface joyfully said.
Liu Jingning smiled a bit and looked at Jiang Hongyan thoughtfully, waiting to see how she would urge Xu Que to leave.
However, before Jiang Hongyan had time to speak, Xu Que said, “Don’t try to persuade me. I will take charge of everything today! And . . . I never do something that I am not sure of. Don’t you believe me?”
He was staring at Jiang Hongyan.
Jiang Hongyan was stunned. She met Xu Que’s gaze for a long time. At last, she sighed, “If the spell is broken, you have to go!”
She knew Xu Que had a spell which he could use to escape the pursuit of powerhouses at the Void Training Stage.
Without giving an affirmative or negative answer, Xu Que just nodded his head and pretended to agree to Jiang Hongyan’s requirement. However, from his cunning eyes, she knew he wouldn’t leave if the spell broke.
Jiang Hongyan didn’t force Xu Que to leave. She glanced up with a serious face, for she had sensed her Heavenly Tribulation was drawing near.
Xu Que smirked, then he took out the spell flag and prepared to open the spell so that Liu Jingning and Buttface could get out.
After all, he couldn’t count on Buttface. And it was useless for Liu Jingning to stay here because they couldn’t implicate her faction.
Just at this moment, he heard a clear and flirtatious voice.
“Little Queque, don’t die. I know you can escape. If Jiang Hongyan refuses to run away, please don’t die with her!”
Xu Que turned around and found Liu Jingning smiling at him.
Xu Que’s eyes widened. The woman was apparently teasing him. Although she’d asked him to avoid dying with Jiang Hongyan, she was implying that he could escape with Jiang Hongyan if she refused to leave on her own.
A dull rumbling abruptly came from the sky.
The next moment, a magnificent, suffocating pressure descended from the sky like an enormous but invisible palm pressing down!
“Just go now!” Jiang Hongyan’s expression shifted and she gracefully jumped into the sky.
The Spiritual Qi beneath her feet turned into a stream of running water, which formed a water bridge that kept extending forward. Jiang Hongyan walked along the water bridge and landed on a mountain near the inlet of the Celestial Burial Valley. She was preparing to cross her Heavenly Tribulation!
“Okay, you just go out now. No matter what happens, just stay as far as possible and don’t come back again!” Xu Que took out the spell flag and opened a secret exit as he spoke to Buttface and Liu Jingning.
“Little brat, remember, don’t die!” Liu Jingning smiled. The next moment, she made eyes at Xu Que as if she were trying to seduce him. After that, she turned around and left.
“Tsk-tsk-tsk, what a coquettish young girl . . . No, she is definitely a siren!” Xu Que felt as if his blood were frozen. This woman was really good at flirting with men. Xu Que shook his head.
Then, he turned to Buttface and prepared to urge him to go. “Buttface, be quick, just go . . . ”
However, hardly had he finished his words when he was dumbfounded. Buttface had already disappeared! When he’d opened the spell, this shameless dog rushed out immediately ahead of Liu Jingning!
“D*mn! He’s really fast running for his life!”
Xu Que was speechless. After following Liu Jingning and Buttface with his eyes, he waved his hands and lowered the spell flag to close the spell!
The sky was filled with black clouds. Lightning kept flashing in the clouds as if it were a lightning dragon shuttling back and forth.
Xu Que turned around and found Jiang Hongyan sitting on the summit of the mountain with her legs crossed. Strands of Spiritual Qi gathered around her and turned into a water curtain to envelop her.
After seeing the descent of the thunder clouds from the sky, the cultivators outside the spell immediately became serious.
Jiang Yushu’s eyes widened; he angrily shouted, “The Heavenly Tribulation has arrived. Jiang Hongyan has nowhere to run! Let’s break the spell!”
