Chapter 610: A Million Celestial Soldiers Collect Debt!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
“Pay it back!”
The magnificent yelling echoed between heaven and earth. It was earthshaking and caused landslides on the mountains.
Xu Que stared dumbfounded. His mouth widely and he almost spat blood!
Pay it back?
What the hell? I don’t owe you money!
He suddenly realized what was going on.
It seemed he really owed something—specifically, 8,000 Acting Tough Points. After the interest had been compounded by the unscrupulous System, the total sum had reached 20,000 Acting Tough Points!
Damn! This is not good!
Xu Que sweated profusely. He cursed the ancestors of the System 100 times in his heart.
I just owe 20,000 Acting Tough Points! Why the hell did you ask one million celestial soldiers to collect the debt?
No, this is not debt collection!
They are going to kill me here!
Xu Que opened the System. “System, what do you mean? Are you nuts? You’re humiliating me! Why did you ask one million celestial soldiers to collect the debt from me?” he asked angrily. “Do you think I would rather kill myself than pay it back the Acting Tough Points!?”
Now it’s a dire moment, the perfect opportunity for a hero to save a beauty! You asked so many people to collect your debt. How could I act tough in this scenario?
Ding! “The Host shall pay it back the principal and interest of 20,000 Acting Tough Points now. Otherwise, the Host shall face the consequences. It is right and proper for those who owe money to pay the debt. Please behave yourself!” The System’s chilly and relentless voice echoed in Xu Que’s mind.
Xu Que was enraged. Puff! “Why should I pay it back the Acting Tough Points I borrowed through hard work? Besides, now I only have around 1,000 Acting Tough Points. How could I pay you back? You can ask those celestial soldiers to leave now, and I will pay you back after acting tough this time. Okay?”
Ding! “The ‘Debt Collector Beats Debtors’ has been activated and it will not be deactivated unless the Host pays back the Acting Tough Points!”
“Then you’re killing me now!” Xu Que said angrily.
However, this time the System fell silent and stopped replying.
Xu Que became even angrier. He remembered when he first activated the System it said it would act tough and fly together with him. How could it be so cruel and make trouble out of nothing now?
“Fine. You are forcing me to do so. You sent one million celestial soldiers, right? Hum!” After talking tough, Xu Que looked up again.
Among the thick black clouds, he saw one million celestial soldiers swiftly flying toward him with great momentum.
However, when these celestial soldiers drew nearer, Xu Que’s face lit up.
It seemed the celestial soldiers were not substantial but composed of converged thunder. And the pressure and aura they gave off were exactly the same as the Heavenly Tribulation!
In front of these celestial soldiers made from converged thunders, the Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud and the Ancient Catastrophe were nothing.
Xu Que’s heartbeat couldn’t help quickening.
This is the Heavenly Tribulation! They are one million celestial soldiers made from converged power of the Heavenly Tribulation! They are no longer fearsome for me!
I got it! This time maybe it is really a coincidence!
A smile appeared on Xu Que’s lips. The System had activated the “Debt Collector Beats Debtors” function to collect its debt. Maybe what it summoned were real celestial soldiers, but also some kind of mystical power. Coincidently, Jiang Hongyan crossed her Heavenly Tribulation today. Her Heavenly Tribulation was already quite difficult, and through combination of the two factors, the power of the Heavenly Tribulation had turned into one million celestial soldiers!
In other words, these celestial soldiers were not only the Heavenly Tribulation Jiang Hongyan had to face soon, but also the debt collectors for the System.
However, exactly what Xu Que needed eagerly now was the mighty power of thunder.
Originally, he thought it would be boring if Jiang Hongyan also had to face the Heavenly Thunder of Purple Cloud and the Ancient Catastrophe. Now he was excited!
“System, it seems I misunderstood you. I didn’t expect you to be so considerate. Thank you!” Xu Que didn’t forget to show appreciation to the System when he was overjoyed.
The System was confused by his words. Ding! “Host, please make yourself clear!”
If the System were intellectual, it might have been even more confused. I asked someone to beat you up, but you thank me in return. Why?
“That was clear enough! Ha-ha-ha!” Xu Que laughed loudly and waved his hand to purchase a Spirit Visage and a Banshee’s Veil. Then, he put them on along with a Negative Cloak.
These items enhancing magic resistance protected him from the Ancient Catastrophe when he crossed the 59 Heavenly Tribulations.
However, these three items were not enough to protect him against one million celestial soldiers. But Xu Que had no choice. He only had around 1,000 Acting Tough Points left. He couldn’t just use them up casually. He knew clearly that he would definitely be wounded, so he had to save those Acting Tough Points to keep the Automatic Recovery Function on.
At this moment, a crisp noise sounded from behind him.
Xu Que turned around surprised and found Jiang Hongyan had also sensed the extraordinarily powerful momentum of the Heavenly Tribulation. It seemed her mind was influenced by the tribulation. Fractures started to appear on the frozen water curtain outside her body.
The long eyelashes on her beautiful eyes trembled slightly as if she were urging Xu Que to leave immediately.
Xu Que smiled. “Don’t worry. It is just the 69 Heavenly Tribulations—let me handle them!”
After saying that, Xu Que raised his arms and a Dark Heavy Buster Sword appeared in his hand. He looked up slowly at the sky. A touch of perseverance and determination appeared on his face.
At this moment, the cultivators outside the spell watched completely terrified.
Although the Myriad Flame Incinerate Ghosts Spell blocked the inlet of the Celestial Burial Valley, it couldn’t cover the sky. When one million celestial soldiers made from converged thunder appeared, everyone outside the spell was greatly shocked.
Within an instant, they experienced an emotioaln change from confusion, to astonishment, and finally to fear.
“Are . . . they Jiang Hongyan’s 69 Heavenly Tribulations?”
“Impossible! This is no longer the 69 Heavenly Tribulations! Even the 79 Heavenly Tribulations couldn’t be so horrible!”
“Could it be that these are the legendary humanoid lightning or heavenly tribulations composed of celestial incarnations?”
“No, they are not humanoid lightning. It . . . is a celestial army that could instantly destroy the East Continent!”
“Insane! This is totally insane! What is Jiang Hongyan exactly? How could she cause such a horrible catastrophe?”
“Wait. It sounds to me as though those celestial soldiers shouted ‘pay it back’ when they appeared. Are they here to collect debt?”
“Yes, I also heard them shout ‘pay it back!’”
Many people were confused. Even the powerhouses, Holy Sons and Holy Virgins of the big families and sects looked quite pale.
They didn’t know what exactly was happening. But they knew clearly that this kind of Heavenly Tribulation would not only kill Jiang Hongyan, but also eliminate them all. Even the entire East Continent could be ruined!
Dong Genji and his underlings of the Carefree Building were also terrified.
No matter how arrogant they were, they couldn’t keep calm now!
The formation of one million celestial soldiers was endless. Its momentum was way too horrible!
“Jiang Hongyan really deserves to be called the number one cultivator from those years!” someone said with a wry smile. Even those who had reached the Void Training Stage were still no match for Jiang Hongyan.
Someone looked at Dong Genji and shook his head. “Building Head, I’m afraid she is doomed this time!”
Dong Genji’s heart trembed. However, his expression didn’t change. After staring at the sky for a while, he started speaking through clenched teeth. “It’s a pity I can’t get Jiang Hongyan. But for me, she is nothing but a toy. She could die. That guy could also die. But we must obtain that guy’s storage rings. I bet he has a lot of treasuries with him! We can’t afford to lose them!”
Not far away, Liu Jingning and Buttface had returned to the team of the Utopia Faction.
However, Liu Jingning and Buttface were also dumbfounded.
“How . . . could this be?” Liu Jingning asked with a shaky voice.
Buttface was also shocked. “I think the target of this Heavenly Tribulation is the little brat! He has no conscience—could it be that someone else’s Heavenly Tribulation is also aiming at him?”
A dull sound abruptly came in from behind the spell!
The next moment, a figure rocketed into the sky before so many shocked and frightened eyes. With a Dark Heavy Buster Sword in hand, the figure rose straight up with murderous intent!
