Although Xu Que’s words, which even included quotes of some well-known phrases like ‘Being alive or dead, I will be a hero who is upright and unyielding’, sounded quite sincere, Zixia Fairy didn’t believe him at all. When Xu Que tried to escape after ruining her elixir plantation, she knew Xu Que was totally a villain, who was even worse than her exiled apprentice Duan Jiude!
A bad guy like Xu Que would definitely be a public enemy in her age.
Also, Zixia Fairy was curious how a bad guy like Xu Que could stay alive till now. She thought the way of the world had been changed.
Therefore, she made a decision that the first thing she would do after going out was to kill Xu Que to prevent him from doing evil to this world!
Of course, if she went out now, she would find Xu Que had already become the public enemy of this world.
For example, just at this moment, all families and sects had sent their people to gather outside the Mystery Land. Some of them were onlookers, but most of these cultivators were waiting for Xu Que.
One year ago, Patriarchs of the families and sects reappeared in this world. In the exclamations of numerous cultivators, these Patriarchs arrived at this place and also planned to capture Xu Que when he came out.
However, half a year ago, a lot of Patriarchs had left for the Infinite Sea of the North Sea. None of them had returned yet.
Now, the Mystery Land was about to close. Countless powerhouses of different families and sects were waiting outside the entrance.
One Patriarch of the Heavenly Horn Ox Tribe chose to stay. Apparently, his goal was to kill Xu Que personally.
“The Mystery Land will be closed in two days. Could Xu Que really have the guts to come out?” someone asked expectantly.
“Now, Patriarchs of all families and sects have woken up. During this period, a lot of people have come in and out of the Mystery Land. I guess Xu Que has been freaked out after getting the news!”
“Hah-hah, he has to come out sooner or later. He could come out himself, or be teleported out by the Mystery Land, or disappear together with the Mystery Land!”
“According to the information provided by people from the East Continent, that guy has a kind of spell that could help him escape instantly like the Earth Shrinking Art!”
“Heh-heh, it won’t help him this time. In front of the Patriarch of the Heavenly Horn Ox Tribe, he will be killed before he has time to ignite that spell!”
“Although that Patriarch is the youngest one, his strength is not the lowest among all Patriarchs of the Heavenly Horn Ox Tribe. It is said he has reached Level Six of the Form Synthesis Stage!”
“Incredible! He could eliminate a mid-sized sect with one hand!”
“Only two days left, let’s just wait and see. No matter how cunning that Xu Que is, he has to face his death in front of the ultimate strength!”
Many people were sneering and were looking forward to witnessing the scene when Xu Que was killed by the Patriarch of the Heavenly Horn Ox Tribe.
However, people of the Sky Incense Valley looked quite pale.
Within the past year, they had seen so many Patriarchs arrive and firmly believed Xu Que was really doomed this time.
Although there was only one Patriarch left, they still believed the result wouldn’t be changed.
Now the Mystery Land was about to close, and most people of the Sky Incense Valley had left. Zhang Suliang and Tang Xueru decided to stay. As Xu Que’s friends, they decided to do what they could, such as collecting the body of Xu Que!
At the same time, Xu Que and Liu Jingning were also about to leave the Mystery Land.
Xu Que believed Zixia Fairy. Since she said she would leave together with Xiao Rou, she would definitely keep her word.
Although she only said she would leave soon but didn’t mention when, Xu Que thought it was still better than seeking for Xiao Rou by entering this place 100 years later.
As for Zixia Fairy threatening to kill Xu Que after coming out, Xu Que chose to ignore her threat.
We’ve been connected by the Red Rope of Marriage! How dare you murder your husband! I will definitely punish you!
“Little Queque, it seems you really have a lot of intimate friends! I didn’t expect you hid a little girl here!” Liu Jingning said with a smile looking at Xu Que.
Xu Que raised his eyebrows and said seriously, “It is quite normal for an honest young man like me to have a lot of intimate friends!”
“The point is it seems all your intimate friends are women!” Liu Jingning said with a smile, but her tone was a little bit weird.
When they were in the Five Elements Mountain, she knew Xu Que had several female companions. But then she didn’t care about it. After all, Xu Que was just a junior to her.
She didn’t know why she had started to get annoyed about it now. Therefore, when they talked about this issue, Liu Jingning didn’t really understand what her point of view was.
After all, even though she knew Xu Que had no obligation to answer her questions, she was still curious about how he would answer.
“Alas!” Xu Que stopped suddenly, then, looking forward he sighed desolately.
“What’s wrong?” Liu Jingning was shocked by his reaction and didn’t know the reason.
Xu Que touched his face and said sadly, “Blame it all on me! I am too handsome! All my problems have been caused by my handsome face! But I will still be handsome for the rest of my life! What can I do? I am also suffering from despair!”
After saying that, he walked away desolately, putting his hands behind his back.
“…” Liu Jingning was stunned on the spot.
After a while, she stomped her feet and snorted, “What a brazen bastard! You are so shameless!”
Finally, they stepped toward the entrance of the Mystery Land. Liu Jingning didn’t mention Xu Que’s intimate friends anymore for she got more and more worried as they walked up to the entrance.
After all, they had heard some news on their way from some passers-by.
The Patriarchs of the families and sects woke up one year ago. The world was not quiet anymore.
Moreover, a Patriarch of the Heavenly Horn Ox Tribe was waiting outside the entrance for Xu Que.
“Little Queque, are you sure you can escape safely?” Liu Jingning couldn’t help but ask the question that worried her the most as they approached the entrance.
Xu Que shook his head and said with a smile, “I remember I said I could be safe, but I didn’t say I will escape! Let’s go, little sister. Do you think that Patriarch of the Heavenly Horn Ox Tribe could defend himself from one punch from me?”
Liu Jingning was stunned. Then she remembered Xu Que smashed hundreds of golden swords with one punch when he crossed his Heavenly Tribulations, which relieved most of her worries.
But it didn’t mean Xu Que could really defeat a Patriarch. Anyway, in front of a cultivator at the Form Synthesis Stage, no matter how powerful Xu Que was, he could ensure his survival at most.
“OK! Just don’t do anything reckless. Once the situation becomes unfavorable, you should escape with your spell!” Liu Jingning reminded him seriously.
“Hmm…” Xu Que replied ambiguously with a weird smile on his face.
When his Taoist Connotation hadn’t taken shape, he didn’t dare to upgrade through killing people for fear that he would destroy his Taoist Connotation.
Now his Taoist Connotation had taken shape. Together with his powerful magic arts, he had become fearless.
Moreover, he had just crossed his 69 Heavenly Tribulations. Now he needed upgrades urgently. According to his style, the appearance of a Patriarch was just something Xu Que wanted to accumulate experience points.
For Xu Que, the Patriarch at the Form Synthesis Stage was nothing.
If he couldn’t defeat the Patriarch with a punch that cost 1,000 Acting-Tough Points, he would use the punch that cost 2,000 Acting-Tough Points! If he still couldn’t defeat the Patriarch, he could still use the punches that cost 3,000, 4,000, or 5,000 Acting-Tough Points!
This King of Tough-Acting Fist was just a cheating art!
One day later, a dull sound came from the barrier at the entrance to the Mystery Land.
Two figures dashed out. One was a handsome man and the other was a beautiful woman!
People outside the entrance fixed their eyes on those two people, and their expressions changed immediately.
“He really came out!”
“Wait! Oh, no, how could he reach the Void Training Stage?”
“It seems the hearsay is true. He didn’t destruct his cultivation. Two years ago, he was at the Infant Transformation Stage. He finished his secluded cultivation in the Mystery Land in the last two years! What a cunning guy!”
“I’ve heard he didn’t have the Taoist Connotation before. Now he has reached the Void Training Stage, which means he has found an opportunity in the Mystery Land apparently!”
“Heh-heh! What a pity! The Patriarch of the Heavenly Horn Ox Tribe is waiting for him!”
After being surprised, the onlookers started to take pleasure in Xu Que’s misfortune.
For them, no matter what kind of opportunity Xu Que had found, he was nothing but a dead person now.
Just at this moment, a dull sound came from the summit of the mountain. It seemed the void was being shaken by someone. Then, a magnificent pressure swept over everything!
This momentum suffocated a lot of cultivators in this area, whose foreheads were covered by cold sweat.
The strength of a Patriarch at the Form Synthesis Stage was incredibly powerful!
Liu Jingning clenched her teeth and was about to remind Xu Que to escape by sending him a message.
Then, suddenly, a deafening voice came from the summit of the mountain.
“You are Xu Que, right? Good! Now come over here and kowtow to me in three breaths!” the Patriarch at the Form Synthesis Stage said with indisputable arrogance and determination.
Even though they knew they were not the target of the Patriarch, the onlookers still turned pale immediately.
However, Xu Que replied with a faint smile as he stood there calmly, “It’s nice! I’ve just finished my secluded cultivation. Now, someone is trying to get in a beef with me. Tell me, what kind of punch do you want?”
