Go to the sea?
Liu Jingning and Buttface were both stunned, then they were shocked by Xu Que’s decision.
“Are you going to take part in the competition?” Liu Jingning asked in surprise.
Xu Que smiled. “Originally, I’d planned to just rob the Living Holy Water. Since there’s a competition, I’d like to take part. After all, I’m a good boy who always follows the rules!”
Liu Jingning ignored Xu Que’s boasting and said, “Even if you want to take part in the competition, I’m afraid you don’t have enough time to prepare. Now, where can we find a suitable ship? Even if I go with you, we still don’t have enough people to sail the ship to the small island!”
It was quite an easy task for a cultivator to build a ship.
However, this sea was extraordinary. Ordinary wooden ships could be smashed by the waves instantly.
Therefore, all the ships prepared by the big families and sects for this competition were refined magic artifacts made of the hardest woods. Being protected by various restrictive spells, the ships were steered by several powerhouses at the Void Training Stage who kept strengthening the ships with the True Core Strength. The remaining crew was responsible for paddling so the ship could sprint forward!
Xu Que had no ship and was shorthanded. How could he take part in the competition?
“Heh-heh.” Ironic laughter floated over. “Don’t tell me you’re also going to take part in the competition!”
Dong Genji and several geniuses of the Carefree Building walked over and looked at Xu Que with sarcastic smiles.
Dong Genji used to be afraid of Xu Que. When he realized the relationship between Xu Que and Duan Jiude was not as he’d originally believed, he was relieved.
They heard that Xu Que also wanted to take part in the competition when they passed by. He couldn’t help but laugh.
How could an ordinary person sail in the Upflowing Sea? It was nothing but seeking death!
At this moment, another dubious voice chimed, “What? How could an ordinary person be here?”
A tall and strong man with two horns on his head walked over. His body gave off an overbearing momentum. Beside him, several women of the Half-Demon Clan were curiously staring at Xu Que.
All of them were surprised. It was simply irrational to see an ordinary person in this area.
“Brother Ox, this is not an ordinary person. It’s more accurate to say that he is a waste of a person!” Dong Genji said with a smile. It seemed Dong Genji knew horned man.
The horned man was confused. “What do you mean?”
Dong Genji smiled cruelly. “It might sound unbelievable but, not long ago, this Lord Xu Que here used to be a sovereign at the Infant Transformation Stage. eH destroyed his cultivation because he failed to cultivate his Taoist Connotation!” He hated Xu Que and Buttface to the core. Therefore, he would never miss an opportunity to kill and, at the very least, mock at them.
“Building Head Dong, it was a bit too much to say that!” Liu Jingning was annoyed by his words. She started defended Xu Que with furrowed eyebrows.
“Holy Virgin Liu,” Dong Genji said with a smile, “he’s just a waste person! Is it really necessary for you to defend him?”
Liu Jingning’s face darkened. She was about to say something when the horned man walked over to her cheerfully. He folded his hands and said, “Holy Virgin Liu, long time no see! I would appreciate your guidance during the upcoming competition in the Upflowing Sea!”
He started to chat with Liu Jingning and ignored Xu Que. His greedy eyes were fixed on Liu Jingning’s body.
Liu Jingning’s face was even darker. Anyone else who dared to be so rude to her would have been killed instantly.
However, she was quite afraid of the man in front of her. The man’s strength, as well as his family, were stronger than her and the Utopia Faction. Therefore, she couldn’t afford to offend him.
“My fellow cultivator Ox, please don’t make fun of our Utopia Faction!” Liu Jingning said coldly. “I’m afraid this time the Ox Family will at least enter the top three during this competition!”
The horned man wore a proud smile. “Holy Virgin Liu, if you don’t mind, the Ox Family is always ready to cooperate with the Utopia Faction!”
Liu Jingning was stunned—this proposal was quite attractive.
However, when she saw the man’s thoughtful smile, she calmed down.
This cooperation would only happen at a high cost!
“Exactly! Cooperation between us!” the horned man nodded with a smile. “Holy Virgin Liu, there are too many irrelevant people here. Can you come to the Ox Family’s area? We can have a detailed discussion with Building Head Dong?”
Liu Jingning was about to reject this offer without even thinking about it. Just at this moment, Xu Que and Buttface stepped out and looked at the horned man greedily.
“Brother Ox, are you an ox?” Xu Que asked as he fixed his eyes on the man; it looked as if he were appreciating a beauty.
The man frowned immediately. He was quite uncomfortable with Xu Que’s gaze and felt goosebumps rise on his skin.
In order to show due respect to Liu Jingning, he quietly replied, “I am a Heaven Horn Ox of the South Continent and I have the bloodline of the Ancient Divine Ox in my body!”
“Holy sh*t!” Buttface shouted in surprise. “He really is an ox!” His eyes lit up and he started to drool!
“I am a Heaven Horn Ox!” the man corrected in an unpleasant voice.
An ox was not even close to a Heaven Horn Ox!
After examining Xu Que and Buttface’s expressions, Liu Jingning got a bad feeling in her heart. She knew the two of them were about to cause trouble!
“Xu Que, I still have something urgent to handle with the Utopia Faction,” Liu Jingning said immediately. “Let’s go back together!” She walked away, grabbing Xu Que’s arm without hesitation. She was really worried that Xu Que was about to cause trouble.
After all, the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe was quite powerful in the South Continent; it could even match the big families like the Jiang Family and the Gong Family. More importantly, they were in the South Continent, where the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe had a lot of power. Once they offended the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe, it almost meant they would offend the entire South Continent!
As they left, the man of the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe watched with a dark face and ferocious eyes.
Dong Genji smiled, quite satisfied with the current situation.
Just at this moment, they faintly heard the conversation between Xu Que and Buttface!
“Little brat, did you see that? He’s really an ox!”
“I really miss those beef balls!”
“Me too! Also, I miss the Pan-fried Beef Steak with Black Pepper! I really want to eat them now!”
“What’s a beef steak? I haven’t eaten one before!”
“Of course you haven’t eaten one before! It’s a kind of Western-style food, which also includes the Filet Steak, the Sirloin Steak and the Beef Ribs with Secret Ingredients, and so on! When the beef is medium-rare, you pour black pepper sauce on it. Wow! It’s extremely delicious! Oh, no! The more we talk about it, the hungrier I fee;! Why don’t we go back?”
“Okay! Okay! Awesome!” Buttface drooled while nodding.
Liu Jingning knocked Buttface’s head and, embarrassed, hissed, “Can both of you stop making trouble?”
She was astonished—they were planning to eat that Heaven Horn Ox!
The man of the Heaven Ox Tribe, who had clearly heard their entire conversation, was so furious that he trembled with anger.
“They are seeking death!” he said through clenched his teeth.
“Brother Ox, please calm down. They will have no chance to escape during the Upflowing Sea!” Dong Genji said with a delighted smile.
He didn’t think this was a good place to kill Xu Que.
Xu Que would definitely not have come to this place without preparation. He had probably prepared an ace card, or he could probably just escape with his spells.
However, the space in the Upflowing Sea was confined. Xu Que could never escape. If he attacked Xu Que with people of the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe on the sea, they would surely kill him there.
“You’ll meet your death when the competition begins tomorrow!” Dong Genji said, his eyes two chilly lights watching at Xu Que and Liu Jingning walk away.
Liu Jingning didn’t dare take Xu Que back to the area of the Utopia Faction. She didn’t even plan on going back. She found a place with fewer people and sat down in front of Xu Que.
“Little brat, we can’t afford to offend the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe,” she said, staring at Xu Que seriously. “Otherwise, you’ll be in a more dangerous situation than when you were in the East Continent! We can stay here for now. When the competition begins tomorrow, and all the powerhouses have gone out to sea, we’ll leave here immediately!”
Xu Que’s eyes widened. “Leave here? Why should we leave here? I’m also going to take part in the competition!”
“Exactly!” Buttface agreed. “Why should we leave here? I haven’t tasted the steaks yet!”
Liu Jingning angrily rolled her eyes. Shaking her head, she said, “Little brat, this isn’t a game! Without a ship or enough people, you can’t go in the Upflowing Sea! If you fall into the water, all your vital energies will be devoured immediately!”
“Little sister, please don’t worry about me! I have at least 100 ways to cross this Upflowing Sea. And I can defeat those guys easily. Tomorrow, you’ll see. I’ll be the one getting the Living Holy Water!” Xu Que smiled confidently. He glanced at the big ships docked at the seaside, and a suddenly bit of disdain pulled down his lips.
A rowing race?
Can your shabby ships match up with me?
I don’t use paddles to row a boat, I only use waves!
And I will definitely be the ultimate King of Tough-Acting!
