Chapter 715: Xu Que, Where Is Your Sense Of Integrity?
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
While Xu Que was moving around different cities with Jiang Hongyan, he heard the warnings.
If I don’t go to the Celestial Burial Valley to have a fight with them, they will kill everyone in the East Continent?
Xu Que sneered. He was now in his best state ever: more than 80,000 Acting Tough Points. Now he would easily be able to kill a few cultivators who were almost in the Crossing Calamity Stage. Even if he would run out of his Taoist Connotation, he could go away and rest for a few days and return.
However, before Jiang Hongyan recollected her memories, he did not want to show himself in public in case Jiang Hongyan was taken away. In the next few days, Xu Que tried everything he could to flirt with Jiang Hongyan, but she gave no response at all.
For example, when Xu Que wanted to take off his clothes to keep Hongyan out of the rain, Hongyan just waved her hand and she literally became waterproof.
Besides, where they were there were no carriages on the road or thugs, so Hongyan could not possibly be in danger. A few days later, the relationship between them had made no improvement at all.
In fact, Xu Que knew clearly what affect the Red Rope of Marriage would have. It would only increase the chances for two strangers to know each other and stay together. That’s all.
If Xu Que could not win Jiang Hongyan’s heart, even if he used 100 Red Ropes of Marriage, it would be futile. Obviously, even if Jiang Hongyan had not lost her memories, she was difficult to attain for any man.
In the olden days, she would be a woman that only an Immortal Cultivator could be with. Now she has become a woman like Zixia Fairy, who can’t be with anyone.
I do have to give my gratitude to the Soul Pagoda in the Sky Incense Valley! If it were not for that, I could not possibly get the chance to make contact with Jiang Hongyan. The only thing I can do now is to wait. I have to wait until she recollects her memories. Then I am sure our relationship can be rebuilt.
Therefore, Xu Que had given up trying to entice Jiang Hongyan, but he could not ignore the threat from the cultivators.
One day, Xu Que sent a message to them: “Tell those intruders, I would never cause any disaster to anyone in the East Continent! What I am afraid is that after I go to see them, they would still kill everyone in the East Continent!”
The cultivators got the message and replied to him, “Then what do you want us to do?”
Xu Que sent another message: “Unless you swear on your Inner Demons that you would never ever kill anyone from the four Continents, I will not come!”
“Deal!” The cultivators agreed.
Outside of the Celestial Burial Valley where countless cultivators from the East Continent were standing close to the entrance, the cultivators from the other side swore on their Inner Demons that they would not kill anyone from the four Continents once Xu Que came to meet them.
In fact, they did not want to do so, since the only thing they wanted to do was to bring Jiang Hongyan back home.
“Xu Que, they have done what you have asked! When will you go to see them?”
“Xu Que, you must stick to your word!”
“As well as us cultivators, there are many innocent ordinaries. If you break your word, what would happen to them then?!”
“Xu Que, go! We will always remember you if you die!”
Many influential Factions sent messages to Xu Que.
When Xu Que arrived at a new city, everyone in that city would stare at him, and he could feel that they were all asking him to go to see the cultivators.
“Why you are all in such a hurry?! I always stick to my word. I will be there in two hours! If I am not there, I am a dog!” Xu Que said.
Hearing this, many cultivators were shocked by his words.
Is he going to set us up this time or he knows he is able to kill them, but he doesn’t want to let us know how capable he is. Otherwise, he would not make such a decision, since there is a big chance that he might be killed.
Still, many cultivators were moved by him.
“I think I have misunderstood him. I thought he was like Duan Jiude. Now he is willing to risk his own life to save us!”
“By the way, he has never done anything to hurt us. Those he hurt are people who offended him in the first place.”
“He is such a good young man!”
“If we realized this much earlier, he would definitely have become the strongest guardian of the four Continents!”
“I am so sad now. In the future, I will never judge a person by his appearance. Xu Que is a talent and treasure to us. Now, because of our shortsightedness, we are about to lose him!”
Many cultivators were sighing, and some sentimental ones even broke into tears.
Xu Que was deeply touched and said, “If I die, remember to take my ashes with you. If you are ever in danger, throw them at your enemy and you will be fine!”
Later, many cultivators from other ancient cities gathered together and saw Xu Que off. They were all in tears and wanted to remember Xu Que, a remarkable young man!
When Xu Que arrived at the Celestial Burial Valley, he found countless cultivators were already there. Seeing Xu Que coming alone, those cultivators from the other side were angry.
“You bastard, where is our Holy Senior?” The cultivator who was almost in the Crossing Calamity Stage was furious!
“You guys talk too much bull! Let’s fight!” Xu Que said while dashing toward them.
The cultivators from the other side hurriedly practiced the most incantations that they knew.
Xu Que was hit. The next minute his body exploded and vanished.
The battle was over.
Everyone present was stunned.
“He is gone…like this?!”
“Just one round, and he is dead already?!”
Many cultivators could not believe what they had seen. After all, this was totally not what they expected.
A few seconds later, the cultivators from the other side began to curse.
“How shameless he is!”
“He just sent one of his doppelgangers here!”
“I swear I will kill everyone in the East Continent!”
Everyone was shocked.
So he just sent his doppelganger here? He is such a jerk. All those wonderful words were just all garbage!
In an ancient city that was tens of thousands of miles away, Xu Que returned with Jiang Hongyan from a field trip to a beautiful mountain.
He heard what had transpired today and smiled. “They did not say I couldn’t send a doppelganger! The doppelganger is my representative, so I haven’t broken my word, and they also have to stick to their words.”
Hearing this, everyone rolled their eyes and almost fainted.
Xu Que, where is your sense of integrity? You broke your promise first, how can you force them to stick to their words?
The next day, the cultivators from the other side sent a message: “Tell Xu Que himself, not his doppelganger, to come to see us together with our Holy Senior. We want him to kneel down in front of us before we kill him. He can never have our noble Holy Senior. If he does not do so, we will definitely kill everyone in the East Continent, even if we would be devoured by our Inner Demons! We are going to wipe out the Utopia Faction first, then kill Buttface and Duan Jiude!”
Meanwhile, Xu Que was quietly sitting next to Jiang Hongyan, watching her cultivating. They had been together for almost half a month, but nothing had happened between them yet. They were still strangers to each other, but not entirely.
Xu Que was not upset by this, because he knew that once she recollected her memories, they could be as close as they were before.
“But when will the time come?” Xu Que sat aside and sighed.
This time of waiting was really hard to bear. For him, facing a woman who barely knew him, made him feel like a day was as long as a year.
Suddenly, a magnificent energy erupted from her. Countless Spiritual Qi surrounded her and changed into dazzling light. She looked exactly like a noble queen. The next moment, she opened her beautiful eyes and saw Xu Que, who was rather surprised.
She smiled and said gently, “Little thing!”
