Chapter 667: He is Really Ruthless!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The Prevailing Wind Pavilion’s holy son was stunned. He couldn’t believe what he had heard. His harsh questioning could scare most people away. After all, the Prevailing Wind Pavilion was one of the overlords of the South Continent. Nobody dared to offend them casually.
However, Xu Que even didn’t look at him seriously; he just replied with three words: “I don’t know.” Then, he ordered the submarines to attack.
Simple, rude, straightforward, and neat!
Not only did the members of the Prevailing Wind Pavilion not have time to react, but the rest of the cultivators were also dumbfounded.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Dull sounds came from the Upflowing Sea again. The ripples on the water suggested several torpedoes were rushing toward the Prevailing Wind Pavilion’s ship. Their holy son changed his facial expression abruptly and shouted, “Stop!”
At that moment, he realized he had the wrong idea about Xu Que. He was not a hot-headed man but a ruthless one, who always hid a dagger in his smile. As a young man, he could be so resolute in killing without considering the strength of his opponents. He was even more formidable than Duan Jiude!
Finally, the Prevailing Wind Pavilion’s shout didn’t work. After being hit by several torpedoes, their ship, which was not as strong as that of the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe, was instantly torn to pieces. All powerhouses of the Prevailing Wind Pavilion fell into the Upflowing Sea, where they were quickly devoured before even having a chance to scream.
The Upflowing Sea was full of killing traps. No one could survive after falling into it!
The area fell silent again. Many people didn’t even dare to gasp. Deep in their hearts, they were in unbelievable shock. An ordinary person had killed all members of the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe and the Prevailing Wind Pavilion, just like that. He even killed those with the power of the Upflowing Sea. The rest of the cultivators were still shocked and terrified.
Liu Jingning was also in shock. She widened her beautiful eyes, and her face was full of disbelief. Xu Que uttering “Let me handle it” was still echoing in her mind.
He really did handle it. He crushed his enemies like it was nothing. The Heaven Horn Ox Tribe and the Prevailing Wind Pavilion were like ants to him.
“Alas! He showed off again. This is so annoying. I should also have shown my skills!” Buttface was quite depressed and unconvinced, having thought Xu Que might be defeated. He even planned to run away. Buttface didn’t expect Xu Que to so effortlessly defeat his opponents in such an overbearing way; it made him quite envious.
“Heh! It seems the Prevailing Wind Pavilion is just so-so! Come on, who will be my next target?” Xu Que squinted his eyes and looked at the rest of the cultivators with a smile.
The cultivators were so terrified they felt like their blood was frozen. The World of Cultivators was a dog-eat-dog world. Killing and robbery were ubiquitous. Everyone had gotten used to it.
However, at that moment, they realized how horrible this young man was. His cruel, ruthless, and resolute killing shocked numerous powerhouses. More importantly, he was just an ordinary person! They tried to avoid eye contact with Xu Que for fear that they would end up like the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe and the Prevailing Wind Pavilion.
Xu Que was quite satisfied with this effect. System warning tones kept echoing in his mind, and his Acting Tough Points had exceeded 50,000. It was so profitable for him!
More importantly, he had ordered his Taoist Body to control all submarines and aircraft carriers. He then killed the people of the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe and the Prevailing Wind Pavilion with the strength of the Upflowing Sea. After that, the Taoist Body had reached Level 10 of the Infant Transformation Stage, which was the summit of that stage. He even had an overflow of experience points.
His real body was still an ordinary person with no cultivation achievements. Xu Que was not in a hurry, however. With abundant resources, he could regain his cultivation achievements easily!
Seeing that Xu Que was still peeping at him, Duan Jiude jumped up and shouted, “Sh*t! Little brat, why are you looking at me?” No matter how powerful he was, he would still be killed if he fell into the Upflowing Sea.
“Coward, why are you in such a panic?” Xu Que said disdainfully. As a matter of fact, he didn’t plan to attack Duan Jiude. After all, except for Buttface and Liu Jingning, Duan Jiude could be considered an upright gentleman among the other cultivators!
After the announcement of the bounty by the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe and the Carefree Building, all the cultivators had tried to kill Xu Que. They didn’t care if Xu Que was just an ordinary person. In order to make it up to the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe and the Carefree Building, they didn’t hesitate to participate in the killing.
Xu Que was quite angry with their behavior. Therefore, after killing all members of the Heaven Horn Ox Tribe and the Prevailing Wind Pavilion, Xu Que had targeted the Carefree Building!
“Dong Genji!” Xu Que started the roll call.
Dong Genji changed his facial expression. Even the geniuses behind him darkened their faces. That was the first time the fate of a bunch of revered geniuses was to be decided by someone else. Moreover, the one controlling their life or death was an ordinary person!
“Xu Que, are you really going to kill all of us?” Dong Genji asked coldly.
“Don’t worry! I am not that kind of person,” Xu Que replied with a gentle smile.
Dong Genji and his men twitched their lips. You are just that kind of person!
“Xu Que, you will regret your decision to attack our Carefree Building. We have obtained information about the Ancient Bronze Hall, which is related to Jiang Hongyan’s safety. Now, are you still going to kill us?” Dong Genji asked again.
“Really?” Xu Que sneered. He didn’t believe Dong Genji at all. What this hypocrite said could be false in all likelihood.
However, Liu Jingning sent messages to Xu Que. “What he said is correct! When you disappeared, Dong Genji and his men found an ancient book, which recorded the history of the Ancient Bronze Hall. But the Carefree Building refused to disclose the information in that ancient book!”
How could this be? Xu Que was surprised and didn’t continue his inquiry. Instead, he looked at Dong Genji and said with a smile, “Give me that ancient book, and I won’t hurt you!”
Dong Genji shook his head immediately; he was not a fool. “That’s not going to happen unless we go ashore together. Otherwise, I’d rather throw it into the Upflowing Sea!” According to his understanding of Xu Que, he knew Xu Que could eat his words easily. If he surrendered that book now, Xu Que would definitely kill them in the next second.
Xu Que nodded in agreement with Dong Genji’s request. “Okay, you can give it to me when we go ashore.” Xu Que also knew Dong Genji very well; he would really throw the ancient book into the Upflowing Sea if he was pushed to the corner.
In addition, Xu Que didn’t worry that Dong Genji would eat his words. He had numerous methods to ask Duan Jiude to solve this problem for him.
People of the rest of the families and sects became more and more anxious.
The Carefree Building survived. Who will be his next target?
The big families and sects from the East Continent got the most anxious. The Jiang Family even hoped they could become invisible, so they could dodge Xu Que’s eyes. Deep in their hearts, they were quite angry. They wouldn’t be so bewildered if they were not in the Upflowing Sea.
“Guys, calm down. I am not a person who kills at will. It’s not necessary to be so nervous. As cultivators, we should be reasonable! If you didn’t offend me, I won’t attack you,” Xu Que said with a faint smile.
His voice was not loud, but everyone could hear him clearly. The cultivators twitched their lips, embarrassed. All of them had participated in the attack, so they had already offended Xu Que.
A monk stepped out and put his palms together. He said calmly, “Amitabha, Almsgiver Xu, what we did just now was wrong. Let me cut to the chase. What should we do to acquire forgiveness from you, so you could let us go?” He said what all the other cultivators were thinking.
Xu Que said with a smile, “You should know that the Exploding Heavens Faction is in dire need of Spirit Stones. If you could pay 100,000 best-grade Spirit Stones for each person, I’ll put everything behind us!”
100,000 best-grade Spirit Stones? Hearing his words, the cultivators couldn’t help but feel heartache! The unit price was high enough. They would spend 2 or 3 million best-grade Spirit Stones to save all the people on their ship.
The monk made his choice and threw a storage ring at Xu Que. “Okay! This time, our Wind and Thunder Temple sent ten people. Take this 1 million best-grade Spirit Stones. Almsgiver Xu, please check it!”
Seeing that, the other cultivators stopped hesitating and followed suit, clenching their teeth. After all, they could trade their lives with Spirit Stones, which was better than sinking in the Upflowing Sea with the Spirit Stones!
“The Yun Family has 30 people, so this is 3 million best-grade Spirit Stones!”
“The Foggy Stream Sect has 23 people, so this is 2.3 million best-grade Spirit Stones!”
“The Drifting Cloud Sect has 15 people, so this is 1.5 million best-grade Spirit Stones!”
“The Jiang Family has 41 people, so this is 4.1 million best-grade Spirit Stones!”
Soon, almost all families and sects paid their Spirit Stones, except for several sects that didn’t take enough with them. Xu Que was quite pleased with this result. He received more than 40 million best-grade Spirit Stones! Together with the Spirit Stones he earned before, he now had more than 100 million.
It was a great resource, which was enough to support his cultivation until he reached the Form Synthesis Stage!
“My fellow cultivator Xu, can we leave now?” someone asked. They had paid their Spirit Stones, but they were still surrounded by Xu Que’s submarines and aircraft carriers, which prevented them from playing with fire easily.
However, Xu Que’s reply was, “Definitely not!”
“What?” All the cultivators abruptly changed their expressions.
Is he going to eat his words after receiving the Spirit Stones?
“Guys, please calm down. What I said was after receiving 100,000 best-grade Spirit Stones for each person, I will put everything behind us! But I didn’t say I would let you go,” Xu Que said, smiling. But his smile was just nightmares for those cultivators.
Furrowing her eyebrows, a holy virgin couldn’t help but ask, “What else do you want from us?”
Xu Que stopped smiling and said solemnly, “Good question! Actually, please don’t be nervous. I will not hurt you. I just want to talk with you about a business.”
A business? His words confused everyone. How could this guy have a business to talk about? Could he want us to help him?
Even Buttface, Liu Jingning and Duan Jiude were confused.
The holy virgin of the Yun Family of the North Sea stepped out and said with a smile, “Since you said you want to talk about a business, please just say it. I am all ears and will do my best to help you!” She had planned to get Xu Que’s yacht. But now, she just wanted to leave. Xu Que really wanted to get help from them, so she would agree to his request. She knew she could eat her words after leaving that place.
Seeing that, the rest of the cultivators followed her as if they had realized something. “My fellow cultivator Xu, what do you want to talk about? Please tell us!”
“Right! Since you have put everything behind us, we will be friends in the future!”
“Right! If you have troubles, please tell us, and we will do our best to help you!”
“Exactly! That’s also what the Foggy Stream Sect will do!”
Xu Que was delighted after seeing the cultivators’ supportive attitude. “Do you really mean that? Great! Since all of you have agreed, I will just say it!”
The cultivators nodded their heads. “Of course! Just say it!”
“Okay!” Xu Que nodded heavily as if he was encouraged. Meanwhile, he took out a loudspeaker and shouted, “Guys! You are being robbed! Now, men stand on the left, women stand on the right, and ladyboys stand in the middle! Crouch down, and put your hands behind your heads! Then, surrender all your storage rings and magical artifacts!”
