“Little brat, what have you done? Why can’t I enter this hall?” Buttface said ruefully as he rushed over.
He was worried that the precious items would be grabbed by others if he didn’t enter the hall in time.
Xu Que stared at Buttface and said, “Sh*t! It’s none of my business! Can’t you see that I’m also here?”
“Then what’s going on? The rest of the guys could enter the hall, why can’t we?” Buttface was stunned, then said suspiciously, “Could it be that someone sets up us because he knew we’re invincible?”
“What? How could that be? Who? Who’s that discerning?” Xu Que started to search around, widening his eyes.
“It’s too pathetic! This is the pain that invincible powerhouses have to endure, for they are always treated as the center of attention and set up. This is so annoying!” Buttface sighed frustratedly, shaking his head.
Xu Que also shook his head and exclaimed, “We have no choice! Just like fireflies in the dark night, we can’t conceal our dazzling glamour even if we decide to keep a low profile! It isn’t a good thing to be remarkable!”
The man and the dog were shamelessly making narcissistic remarks. Actually, the two of them had reached a tacit agreement that they should look around to find out whether they had been set up by someone while they were giving their shameless remarks.
After all, the situation was too weird! Everyone could enter the hall except Xu Que and Buttface!
“It’s weird. It doesn’t seem like anyone is setting us up!” Buttface said in surprise after looking around for a while.
“It seems the Ancient Bronze Hall is problematic. When we approach it, it becomes an illusion, like a mirage!” Xu Que said while furrowing his eyebrows.
He was floating outside the Ancient Bronze Hall. When he waved, his hand went directly through the bronze wall.
“Sh*t! Why?” Buttface was quite reluctant. He punched the bronze wall with his paw. However, it was just like punching air!
“This is terrible! Hongyan could be in danger!” Xu Que was quite anxious and frowned even harder.
Buttface nodded, “I also noticed that her facial expression was quite weird before she entered the hall!”
At this moment, the Ancient Bronze Hall created a dull sound. A magnificent pressure gushed out instantly.
Xu Que and Buttface changed expressions and stepped back immediately.
This pressure was too overbearing, even more formidable than the Heavenly Tribulation, as if it could crush everything.
Xu Que also could clearly sense the entire Ancient Bronze Hall vibrate a bit as it created the dull sound, like it had been kicked by someone.
“Damn! What’s going on? It seemed like the pressure came from a celestial!” Buttface was completely shocked.
Xu Que’s face also darkened. Just now, the pressure had indeed been extraordinary. If they hadn’t run away in time, they would have been crushed on the spot.
It had been a long time since his arrival in the World of Cultivators, and this was the most powerful pressure he had sensed. Although he hadn’t encountered a powerhouse at the Form Synthesis Stage yet, he knew this pressure was several hundred times more powerful than powerhouses at the Form Synthesis Stage.
Xu Que summoned the system and asked immediately, “System, please check Spell Masters—at which stage could I break this spell?”
He thought he had to enter the hall and take out Jiang Hongyan and Liu Jingning; otherwise, he would never see them again.
Ding! “Through inspection, to break this rune spell, the host should be at least a Level 2 Celestial Spell Master!” the System replied.
Xu Que immediately became confused.
Level 2 Celestial Spell Master?
He was just a One-Star Spell Master now! The difference between a Spell Master and a Celestial Spell Master was not just a single word. He didn’t know how many Acting Tough Points he would have to pay to reach the stage of Celestial Spell Master!
At that moment, he only had around 20,000 Acting Tough Points. His heart was filled with inadequacy.
With those Acting Tough Points, he could reach Three-Star or Four-Star Spell Master at most, which was still far away from the Celestial Spell Master.
“System, I want to take out a loan!” Xu Que shouted with all his heart.
Ding! “The host’s current credit line is 0. Meanwhile, the host still owes 20,000 Acting Tough Points! Since the host has passed the trial of ‘Debt Collector Beats Debtor,’ the host can use this function once!”
“Damn! This is really good news!” Xu Que was pleasantly surprised immediately.
It turned out that the advantage of repudiation was that if the debtor defeated the debt collectors, the debtor could use the function “Debt Collector Beats Debtor” one time!
Holy sh*t! This is awesome!
“System, hurry up, I want to use ‘Debt Collector Beats Debtor.’ Just bring me Ye Fan… No, bring Shi Hao, the Heaven Emperor Huang, here and ask him to open the ancient hall!” Xu Que said excitedly.
However, the System’s reply frustrated Xu Que like it had poured a basin of cold water on him.
Ding! “The host needs 100,000 Acting Tough Points to summon a person randomly from another world! If the host wants to summon the designated person from another world, the host needs to pay 10,000,000 Acting Tough Points!”
“Damn! Why don’t you just rob me outright? I have to pay 10,000,000 Acting Tough Points to summon a designated person, right? How long would it take for me to accumulate so many Acting Tough Points?” Xu Que was annoyed. This was outrageously expensive!
Moreover, he even couldn’t afford to pay 100,000 Acting Tough Points to summon a person randomly, let alone 10,000,000 Acting Tough Points!
At this moment, the Ancient Bronze Hall created another dull sound that was quite loud.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Before Xu Que and Buttface had time to react, the ancient hall’s entrance glowed suddenly. Dozens of figures dashed out crazily, forming lines that looked like streamers.
Bang! The entrance disappeared instantly.
After flying out, the figures fell directly to the ground, like kites with broken strings.
Xu Que widened his eyes in surprise.
All of these people were covered in blood and at death’s door. Even Liu Jingning and Han Ying, the Holy Virgin of the Heaven Secret Pavilion, who hadn’t been injured before entering the hall, were coughing blood and looked pale.
The other Holy Sons and Holy Virgins, such as Xiao Munan of the Heavenly Demon Sect and Qin Ji of the Illusionary Flower & Moon Sect, were more seriously wounded, at their last gasp.
Xiao Taixuan of the Eight Directions Green Dragon Sect was missing an arm. The wound was quite startling. It seemed like his arm had been neatly cut off by a sharp blade.
“Damn! Thanks to my wonderful foresight, we didn’t enter the hall!” Buttface was scared.
“Wait! Where’s Hongyan? Why didn’t she come out?” Xu Que realized something was wrong.
All those who had entered the ancient hall had come out except for Jiang Hongyan.
He searched around but didn’t find her.
“Right, there’s one missing!” Buttface said belatedly.
Xu Que dashed to Liu Jingning using lightning immediately. He grabbed her and prevented her from falling down.
“What happened? Where is Hongyan?” he asked anxiously for fear that an acquaintance had died again.
Liu Jingning’s lips were completely pale. After being hugged by Xu Que, she coughed up blood again. Her eyes were filled with terror and confusion. She murmured, “This… this ancient hall is the coffin of Jiang Hongyan! I saw her lying in it!”
