Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The last batch of golden swords in the sky had been smashed by Xu Que. The deafening explosion echoed all around. Countless golden lightning bolts, which had been smashed, were dissipating in the sky.
However, the magic art used by Bai Lingrui had turned into an enormous finger, which was pressing down toward Xu Que as if it were about to smash an ant.
Xu Que screamed as if confronting a formidable enemy. “Don’t jab me, Bai Baihe!” His movements were so fast that he easily evaded the startling finger.
After that, he ignited the Divine Escape Spell in this hand and disappeared immediately.
Everyone was shocked.
“How could this be?”
“That’s the mysterious finger move of the Azure Lotus Treasure Appraisal Art, which could seal the void. Nobody could possibly escape it!”
Many people were startled, even a lot of Holy Sons and Holy Virgins were shocked.
They knew about this magic art of Bai Lingrui, which originated from the Azure Lotus Treasure Appraisal Art. And the name of this magic art was Azure Lotus Finger. Although it was not a powerful magic art, even they couldn’t guarantee they could escape it!
But now, that guy who could remain calm in front of the horrible Heavenly Tribulations managed to evade that finger instantly, while screaming in terror.
Xu Que’s action confused all the onlookers.
Since he could evade the attack easily, why did he react with such panic, as if he had been attacked by a horrible magic art? Is he insane?
Bai Lingrui’s face also darkened. She thought she could capture Xu Que with her magic art so that he would be killed by the explosion of those golden swords. But it turned out that she’d failed again.
That guy evaded the Azure Lotus Finger easily with a panicked expression. He even called her by the wrong name.
For Bai Lingrui, Xu Que was mocking her deliberately!
Soon, Xu Que, who had just left with the Divine Escape Spell, anxiously returned.
Along with the dissipating golden lightning in the sky, the Heavenly Tribulation had finished. Jiang Hongyan had also been saved. Now Xu Que could relax. He decided to punish the Holy Sons, Holy Virgins, and powerhouses from the big Families and Sects.
Rushing over from afar, Xu Que saw Bai Lingrui immediately, so he solemnly said, “Bai Baihe, you can speak your mind freely, but please don’t jab me again! If you want to jab someone, Dong Genji is the best candidate!”
Dong Genji’s lips twitched. He was quite furious but he had to maintain his gentle appearance in front of Jiang Hongyan, so he restrained his anger and said nothing.
Xu Que’s words made Bai Lingrui tremble with rage. Her face darkened. “Mind your tongue!” she scolded angrily. “I am Bai Lingrui, the Holy Virgin of the Bai Family. I am not Bai Baihe! If you continue to talk rubbish, I will make you lose the will to live!”
“Stop pretending to be innocent! In this world, only Bai Baihe could use such a powerful One Finger Zen! You said you are not Bai Baihe, can you prove that?” Xu Que asked dubiously.
“You…” Bai Lingrui was so angry that she started to tremble again as she stared at Xu Que furiously. However, she didn’t know how to reply.
As the noble Holy Virgin, she didn’t need to prove she was not Bai Baihe. Someone dared asked her to prove that! This was totally absurd!
The onlookers were also speechless.
Why should she prove that? Is it really necessary? You’re really impudent!
“This little brat is really good at teasing others. However . . . who is Bai Baihe? It sounds like the name of a lady!” Liu Jingning smiled, also relaxing after Xu Que had narrowly beaten the Heavenly Tribulation.
When she said that, she glanced over at Jiang Hongyan. Whether Liu Jingning realized she was doing it or not, she wanted to tease the other woman by raising the question of whether or not Xu Que knew too many women.
Jiang Hongyan said nothing as she sat on the ground, crossing her legs as if she heard nothing. She was running her True Core Strength to heal her wounds!
This time Buttface stepped forward to speak for Xu Que. He patted his chest and said, “I can ensure with my experience and wolfality that this guy doesn’t know Bai Baihe. He only knows a beautiful Sect Leader whose name is Su Yunlan. Oh, he also knows Madam Ya, who is a pretty lady. And he knows a valiant and heroic female general whose name is Situ Haitang. Oh, oh, he also knows Su Ling’er and Su Xiaoqi, who are two sisters of the Nine Tailed Demon Fox Tribe!”
His words shocked Liu Jingning immediately. She had meant to tease Jiang Hongyan, but she never expected Buttface to disclose so much precious information by mentioning the names of five different women.
“My God! This guy really has a lot of female companions!” Liu Jingning said with a faint smile on her face as she glanced at Jiang Hongyan again.
However, Jiang Hongyan was still healing her wounds with her eyes closed tightly. Her expression did not change at all. It seemed either she hadn’t heard anything or she didn’t care about what she had heard!
Xu Que was slowly landing from the sky and staring at Bai Lingrui vigilantly. His expression seemed to be warning Bai Lingrui something along the lines of “Don’t jab me,” which almost drove Bai Lingrui crazy!
The powerhouses of the families and sects frowned. They really wanted to take down Xu Que and kill Jiang Hongyan!
However, after witnessing Xu Que’s measures to fight against the Heavenly Tribulations, many people hesitated.
They didn’t worry about Xu Que killing them, but Xu Que’s teleportation spell bothered them. Unless they could prevent Xu Que from escaping, they wouldn’t attack him easily. After all, their attack would make Xu Que harbor more resentment in his heart, and he would seek revenge on them in the future.
“What should we do? Should we just let him go?” an Elder of the Jiang Family asked, furrowing his eyebrows as he looked at Jiang Yushu.
Jiang Yushu’s face was quite gloomy, just like the powerhouses of the other big families and sects.
This time not only the Jiang Family, but also almost all the big families and sects, had suffered great losses.
Except for members of the Heaven Secret Pavilion and the Utopia Faction, only cultivators at the Void Training Stage of the families and sects had survived. All the other cultivators at the Infant Transformation Stage and lower stages had been killed by Xu Que.
They had to make Xu Que answer for that; otherwise, they would become the laughingstocks of the entire East Continent in a matter of days.
Also, they were eager to get Xu Que’s precious items. Everyone knew Xu Que had the Celestial Emperor’s Arts. Even if he didn’t have that, his spells, which granted him the power of teleportation, were attractive enough for all of them!
“I have the feeling that he cares about Jiang Hongyan very much. Maybe we could take down Jiang Hongyan first. With Jiang Hongyan as a hostage, we could capture Xu Que without a fight!” a powerhouse murmured in a low voice.
Someone shook his head immediately. “It definitely would not be easy taking down Jiang Hongyan. Now she has crossed her Heavenly Tribulations successfully and reached the Void Training Stage. Her strength has been enhanced remarkably. Also, our wounds are still not healed. I’m afraid we can’t capture her easily!”
“Right! As for healing our wounds, maybe we could . . . ” A powerhouse’s eyes lit up as he looked at Buttface eagerly.
Many people around him also remembered Xu Que’s wounds had been healed rapidly after he’d been punched by Buttface.
After that, the powerhouses of the big families and sects sealed the area where they were with their Soul Strength and started to chat by sending messages.
Even some Holy Sons and Holy Virgins participated in the discussion, including Bai Lingrui of the Bai Family.
However, Xiao Munan—the Holy Son of the Heavenly Demon Sect—Xiao Taixuan—the Holy Son of the Eight Directions Green Dragon Sect—and Qin Ji—the Holy Virgin of the Illusionary Flower & Moon Sect—didn’t participate in the discussion. It was not because they were softhearted. They were so proud and arrogant that they disdained the thought of healing their wounds by being punched by a dog.
“Alas! In front of such an opportunity, shame is not that big a deal!” Powerhouses of several families and sects were trying to persuade their Holy Sons and Holy Virgins to join them.
However, these Holy Sons and Holy Virgins remained cold faced and didn’t respond. This method was too low for them.
At last, the powerhouses of the big families and sects agreed on capturing Buttface first. Then, they would force Buttface to punch them to heal their wounds, so that they could have the strength to capture Jiang Hongyan and use her as a hostage to intimidate Xu Que.
“Building Head Dong, what do you think? Do you want to join us?” Jiang Yushu asked, looking at Dong Genji at this time.
A lot of powerhouses of the Carefree Building were here. With their participation, the probability of success would be even higher.
Several geniuses of the Carefree Building also tossed their eyes at Dong Genji.
For them, Dong Genji was the backbone of the community. Everything was better when arranged by Dong Genji.
Dong Genji smiled and spoke in high, vigorous spirits: “The Carefree Building will definitely take part in the action. However, I have a condition, which is . . . I want to be the first one to get punched by that dog!”
