“Something bad has happened!”
“This time we are doomed!”
“Bad news has arrived from the North Sea. The four continents are protected by the shackles. However, after Xu Que killed those outlanders, cultivators of the Xuanzhen Continent created a temporary gap on the shackles and delivered a written war challenge through it!”
“They asked us to send Jiang Hongyan back immediately; otherwise, they will break the shackles in five years and slaughter the four continents!”
“What? How could this be?”
“Alas, the shackles have been in place for too many years, and they have used up their Spiritual Qi!”
“I heard the shackles could protect us for ten years, right?”
“Right, they could last for ten years. However, Xu Que killed the outlanders, which has annoyed the Emperor of the Xuanzhen Continent. Now they have started to bombard the shackles, and they will break in five years!”
“Five years? What…should we do?”
“I am still young! Five years will pass by in a blink of an eye. We started our cultivation to pursue immortality. Does this mean all our efforts are in vain?”
Countless cultivators in the East Continent and the rest of the three continents were in a panic!
The pressure from the Xuanzhen Continent was just like a desperate haze suspended over the four continents.
When Xu Que heard the news, he was extraordinarily calm! Because Jiang Hongyan had already told him this when he stopped her from going back to the Xuanzhen Continent. She had also told Xu Que that the Xuanzhen Continent was quite powerful and could break the shackles in five years! Five years were quite short for cultivators!
However, for Xu Que, five years were not that short. He could enhance his strength remarkably in this period. Maybe he could be powerful enough to kill cultivators at the summit of the Great Vehicle Stage! Therefore, he announced calmly, “Cultivators of the four continents should ignore the Xuanzhen Continent’s war challenge. No matter how many cultivators they will send here, I will kill all of them!”
However, it seemed his announcement was not as effective as he expected!
There were numerous families and sects in the four continents that knew the strength of the Xuanzhen Continent clearly. Patriarchs of some families and sects even declared publicly that the Emperor of the Xuanzhen Continent was a powerhouse at the summit of the Great Vehicle Stage! Their declaration dropped the four continents into an uproar!
“The summit of the Great Vehicle Stage? My God! It means he is only a step away from becoming a celestial, right?”
“How could we defeat him?”
“Xu Que said he will kill all the cultivators from the Xuanzhen Continent. If the Emperor of the Xuanzhen Continent comes here, how could he defeat him?”
“The Emperor of the Xuanzhen Continent could be deemed as a demi-god!”
Many cultivators were totally shocked!
“Xu Que is too selfish! How could he keep Jiang Hongyan with him at the cost of all the lives of the four continents?”
The Heavenly Horn Ox Tribe of the South Continent couldn’t help but blame Xu Que. Once someone started the blaming, numerous people followed.
“Those outlanders said Jiang Hongyan was a cultivator of the Xuanzhen Continent and the daughter of the Emperor. As a Holy Senior of the Xuanzhen Continent, why does she stay in the four continents?”
“This time Xu Que has crossed the line. Are all the lives of the four continents less valuable than Jiang Hongyan?”
“Xu Que, I hereby request you to send Jiang Hongyan back by paying attention to the interests of the whole!”
“Xu Que, just send Jiang Hongyan back!”
“Xu Que, just send Jiang Hongyan back!”
More and more requests were spreading among cultivators of the four continents. At last, those requests were turned into an unignorable voice requesting Xu Que to send Jiang Hongyan back to the Xuanzhen Continent!
Hearing this, Xu Que sneered and shook his head, “These people are too naive and innocent!”
“I should go back!” Jiang Hongyan sighed.
“No, you’ve promised me you won’t go back! Moreover, your return will change nothing!” Xu Que said sturdily.
It was just like sending a baby into the woods if he sent Jiang Hongyan back to the Xuanzhen Continent.
That so-called Emperor would even kill his own daughter to safeguard his emperorship. If Jiang Hongyan, whose character had been changed by memories of two lives, went back to the Xuanzhen Continent, her ferocious father would never let her inherit the throne with her character. Maybe he could distort her character with some evil methods!
That day, Xu Que appeared on the wall of the ancient city and shouted, “Everybody, gather round, I have something to say!”
“Xu Que is here!”
“Finally, he is going to reply to the requests. Let’s go and have a look! Countless cultivators in the area were startled and came to see him together. In a short while, the city wall was surrounded by a large crowd!
Everyone was looking at Xu Que with serious expressions! This young man had just killed cultivators at the threshold of the Crossing Calamity Stage, which made him a miracle of the four continents. Now, he could be deemed as one of the most powerful cultivators in the four continents, who could also be regarded as the pride of the four continents! However, he tried to protect a woman at the cost of all the lives of the four continents. A lot of people were dissatisfied with his behavior.
In front of Xu Que, nobody dared to express dissatisfaction. They just stared at him silently and waited for his reply!
“I think I’ve got enough of an audience!” Xu Que said calmly as he looked at the crowd from the city wall. “Fellows, please take out all your Message Delivering Spells and help me to spread the following words, so that all the four continents can hear me!”
The onlookers were surprised. Then, they took out their Message Delivering Spells as their hearts beat faster. Because all of them knew Xu Que would give an official reply to all the people in the four continents, whose fate would be decided by Xu Que’s choice!
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
All Message Delivering Spells were turned into lights dashing into the sky after being ignited like numerous dazzling stars! These Message Delivering Spells would record Xu Que’s words!
At the same time, in a hostel of the ancient city, Jiang Hongyan, who was sitting in a wing-room, was looking at the figure on the city wall from afar with confused eyes! Jiang Taixu and Jiang Linlin also sat beside her. It seemed they had figured out Jiang Hongyan was quite anxious. Jiang Linlin grabbed Jiang Hongyan’s arm and asked cutely, “Sister Hongyan, are you unhappy?”
Jiang Hongyan turned around with a smile and rubbed Jiang Linlin’s head gently, “I am quite happy!”
“But…I feel you are not happy!” Jiang Linlin said, pursing her lips.
“No, I am really happy!” Jiang Hongyan said with a faint smile. Then, she turned to the figure again with warmth in her eyes and said in a low voice, “I am quite happy because of him! He is just a young man, but he is even more powerful than most old devils! And he always tries to protect me! But…”
After saying that, she lowered her voice as if she was murmuring to herself, “But…this burden is not for him! Maybe it’s time for me to leave. I will reunite with him one day in the future!”
At the same time, Xu Que, who was being stared at by numerous eyes, was standing on the city wall with his hands behind his back. His robe was fluttering in the wind! At last, he said seriously, “First, I am here to give a reply to those who request me to send Jiang Hongyan back!”
