Chapter 624: Do You Want to Buy Buttface?
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
You want to be the first one beaten by the dog?
All the powerhouses from the big families and sects frowned, embarrassed by Dong Genji’s requirement.
After all, everyone wanted to be the first.
The main reason was that they were seriously wounded, and their wounds wouldn’t heal quickly. Also, they were in quite a messy situation. Their wounds had been inflicted by a young man in the Infant Transformation Stage, which humiliated them.
Now they had a chance to heal their wounds rapidly—they could heal all their wounds as long as they were beaten up by that dog!
The first one to be beaten would be the first one to heal. All of them were eager to regain strength!
However, this time a lot of geniuses from the Carefree Building were present. Most of them were as powerful as the Holy Sons and Holy Virgins of the big families and sects, some of them even more so.
Their plan was to threaten Xu Que by holding Jiang Hongyan hostage, so they needed people to defeat Jiang Hongyan first. After a short negotiation, the powerhouses of the big families and sects agreed to Dong Genji’s requirement at last!
After that, they stepped out slowly and spread out to approach Buttface, some intentionally and others unintentionally.
They planned to capture Buttface without startling Jiang Hongyan and Xu Que. Of course, if possible, they would prefer to just capture Xu Que or Jiang Hongyan directly.
The Heaven Secret Pavilion and the Utopia Faction still wouldn’t participate in their plan.
Han Ying, the Holy Virgin of the Heaven Secret Pavilion, thought it was unnecessary to take the risk and make an enemy out of Xu Que. She had decided to do her best to make up with Xu Que in the future. Therefore, she quit voluntarily.
The Utopia Faction had been excluded by the big families and sects. Everyone could see clearly that Liu Jingning had quite a good relationship with Jiang Hongyan and Xu Que. If the Utopia Faction participated in the others’ plan, their own plan might be disclosed.
However, no matter how careful they were, they couldn’t avoid attracting Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan’s attention.
Even the foolish Buttface had sensed something was wrong, so he came to Xu Que and said vigilantly in a low voice, “Little brat, I have a bad feeling! They’re about to attack! Hurry, give me hundreds of your escape spells and I’ll ensure your safety!”
Xu Que was amused by Buttface immediately. If I take out hundreds of Divine Escape Spells, how could I need you to ensure my safety?
However, he didn’t plan to escape. On the contrary, he decided to have a good time with these people. Even he couldn’t kill them, he would give them a lesson.
The powerhouses of the big families and sects also knew their plan wasn’t perfect. They would definitely startle Xu Que if they planned to attack.
Now, the arrow had been put on the string, and they had to launch the attack. They would rather launch an attack that was destined to fail than let Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan go.
“Hurry! They’ve stepped up their vigilance! Let’s try to spread out to seal off the area 30 miles around here. I’m guessing the effective range of that guy’s escape spells couldn’t exceed 30 miles!” Jiang Yushu delivered a message to the rest of the cultivators.
Just at that moment, Xu Que stepped out suddenly and shouted, “My fellow cultivators, out of blows, friendship grows! We’re friends now. Anything could be negotiated among us! I still have the Smelly Tofu and the Miraculous Item that can look through ancient stones. If you want, you can purchase them with Spirit Stones!”
Hearing his words, everyone was stunned.
What the hell?
We’re going to surround you and take you down. Are you still trying to do business with us?
“Please note that our Exploding Heavens Faction has no lack of miraculous items, but we are short of Spirit Stones. Therefore, we’d like to trade our miraculous items with you. However, if you’re going to rob me, I guarantee you will get nothing, and you will never have the chance to purchase miraculous items from me, whether I go to the South Continent, the West Desert, or the North Sea!” Xu Que spoke again.
Hearing that, the cultivators stopped.
Jiang Yushu also delivered a message hurriedly to the rest cultivators, “Everyone, stop! Let’s hold off on the attack for a while!”
He believed Xu Que could actually escape and leave them empty-handed; otherwise, with so many powerhouses at the Void Training Stage, they wouldn’t need to work out such a careful plan.
At the beginning, they had thought Xu Que would die fighting. They hadn’t expected Xu Que to be so ambitious as to do business with them at this moment!
However, for them, this was the better option.
In the World of Cultivators, no one could purchase miraculous items with Spirit Stones! Those who had miraculous items would always keep them secret. Only a fool would trade miraculous items for Spirit Stones, but now a fool had appeared! Xu Que was seriously going to sell his miraculous items!
There could be only two possibilities—he was in extreme need of Spirit Stones, or he had a plan!
However, people were inclined to believe the first possibility. They thought Xu Que was from the Exploding Heavens Faction, a small unknown faction that was developing and needed a lot of Spirit Stones.
They didn’t worry about any of Xu Que’s possible conspiracies.
None of them were foolish, otherwise, they would never have gained their current statuses and strength.
They were confident enough to believe they wouldn’t be cheated in this business transaction, although they had been cheated by Xu Que before.
Moreover, many powerhouses of the big families and sects had witnessed the power of Xu Que’s miraculous items. For example, some who had purchased Smelly Tofu during the Stone-Cutting Convention had brought it back home with them. The members of their families or sects who were even stronger than them had verified the effects of the Smelly Tofu!
Therefore, the sale of the Smelly Tofu had been successful for them. Based on this successful case, people were inclined to believe Xu Que was merely in dire need of Spirit Stones.
“My young friend, this way, you can sell your Celestial Emperor’s Arts and the rest of your magic arts! We’ll offer you a satisfactory price!” Jiang Yushu said after pondering for a while.
He thought it was worthwhile to try. It would certainly be good news for them if they could conclude a business deal. If not, they could still find a way to take Xu Que down.
Xu Que shook his head with a smile. “I don’t have the Celestial Emperor’s Arts. Didn’t you notice that although my magic arts were powerful, they didn’t have any Taoist Connotation? The reason is that these magic arts are defective. If I use them, I can’t merge any Taoist Connotation in them!”
Hearing that, Jiang Yushu and the other cultivators’ faces darkened.
They didn’t believe Xu Que’s words, for the Taoist Connotation had nothing to do with magic arts!
The so-called Taoist Connotation was merged with True Core Strength and Soul Strength, as well as the body of a cultivator. Any movement a cultivator made had Taoist Connotation.
Therefore, when a cultivator used any magic art, True Core Strength and Soul Strength would be used, and the Taoist Connotation would also be merged in all moves of magic arts.
Xu Que knew nothing about the Taoist Connotation, so he had just described it with briefly.
However, his nonsense reassured many people.
Jiang Yushu had never expected Xu Que would sell the Celestial Emperor’s Arts! If Xu Que had really wanted to sell them, Jiang Yushu would actually have been suspicious!
Now, Xu Que was refusing to sell the Celestial Emperor’s Arts with such a lame excuse, which reassured Jiang Yushu. He had more faith that Xu Que was sincerely in need of Spirit Stones.
He thought over it a bit and said indifferently, “My young friend, if you’re so insincere, it’ll be very difficult for us to do business. How about this? Since you don’t want to sell the Celestial Emperor’s Arts, let’s talk about the Demonic Beast beside you. How much is it? We want to buy it!”
“Buy the Demonic Beast?” Xu Que was shocked after hearing this.
They even want to buy Buttface!
