A large area of white light appeared in the dazzling runes on the ground!
After feeling the force of the void, Xu Que felt obvious weightlessness. Then, the images of things around him became distorted. The next moment, when he came to himself, he found he was in a pitch-black passage! Nobody was beside him except the emaciated girl who was the disguised Zixia Fairy.
“Be careful! This area is full of restrictive spells. There are also mechanic puppets here!” a soft voice came into his ears, from which he could feel a strand of sincere care!
“OK, Lady Azi, you also take care!” Xu Que replied, nodding his head.
He could sense Zixia Fairy’s good feelings about the Joker, which was his new identity. This good feeling was not like the feeling between love birds. It was only because Zixia Fairy thought he was a just man and didn’t wish him any accidents!
That’s enough! At least this is a good beginning! Xu Que smiled,murmuring to himself.
They started to move forward cautiously. Xu Que didn’t sense any danger. However, the powerful Zixia Fairy still moved carefully as if she was not sure she could reach the bottom of this abode safely. Seeing her reaction, Xu Que also started to keep alert and move forward slowly.
After a short while, they heard a dull sound in front of them, which was followed by several miserable screams!
“This place is too dangerous! How could so many puppets appear suddenly?”
“Ah! How could this be? My magic arts and artifacts couldn’t cause any damage to them!”
“Crap! They can only be smashed by pure strength!”
“How could we defeat them? These puppets are too tough! Nobody can hurt them except the cultivators who were good at physique cultivation!”
“Let’s go back and re-enter another way!”
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Along with the air-rending sounds, several cultivators were dashing back from the end of the passage. They were not surprised by seeing Xu Que and Zixia Fairy. After all, they would meet cultivators in this passage from time to time.
“Guys, this way has been blocked. Someone triggered a restrictive spell by accident, and a bunch of puppets appeared. You’d better leave here immediately!” someone reminded Xu Que kindly.
Zixia Fairy frowned. Then she said as she looked at Xu Que, “Joker, let’s get out of here first!”
“Lady Azi, please take it easy. Actually, I know something about the puppets. Maybe I can deal with them!” Xu Que said with a confident smile.
“No, the puppets here are different than those in other places!” Zixia Fairy shook her head slightly. Apparently, she had made up her mind to leave. Her reaction surprised Xu Que, because she was definitely powerful enough to confront those puppets directly!
“Lady Azi, please trust me. I started to learn mechanic knowledge when I was a kid. And I know the puppets quite well. I used to encounter powerful puppets in the Imperial Tomb of the Metal Nation. All puppets there had reached the Infant Transformation Stage. However, the puppets are not living things. As long as we can find their weak points, we can defeat them easily!” Xu Que explained patiently.
Hearing that, Zixia Fairy hesitated. The cultivators who had planned to retreat were also impressed by Xu Que’s words.
“My fellow cultivator, could you really find out the weak points of those puppets?” someone asked expectantly.
After all, they had arrived at this place with difficulty. If they went back to choose another way, a lot of time would be wasted, and they might also encounter things which could be more dangerous! Now Xu Que said confidently that he could find out the weak points of the puppets. Most of the cultivators believed they should have a try.
“Believe me, I’ve smashed countless puppets at the Infant Transformation Stage. Now I am skillful enough to find the weak points of puppets at the Void Training Stage and smash them!” Xu Que replied, nodding his head. Then, he turned to Zixia Fairy and asked gently, “Lady Azi, let’s go inside. If I can’t defeat them, we still have time to retreat!”
After pondering for a while, Zixia Fairy said, “OK, but please do be careful. This place is really dangerous!”
“OK, I got you!” Xu Que nodded his head strenuously.
Hearing that, the rest of the cultivators were quite happy. Then, they said hurriedly, “My fellow cultivator, we will also follow you to watch your back! You just walk forward. Most restrictive spells in this passage have been solved by us. When you find the weak points of those puppets, we will smash them together!”
“OK, thank you, guys!” Xu Que folded his hands politely. Then, he started to walk forward directly. Seeing that, Zixia Fairy shook her head slightly and sighed to herself. This young man is naturally good but too generous! Those people asked him to act as a shield, but he didn’t realize that. OK, let me take care of him!
Zixia Fairy also stepped forward, following Xu Que closely!
In this way, they started to move forward rapidly!
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Soon, they heard big bangs like heavy objects falling on the ground. Actually, they were the footsteps of a lot of mechanic puppets! Their footsteps were really quite noisy. The entire passage was filled with those noises. A lot of sand and crushed stones were shaken off the walls to the ground around them. However, Xu Que still walked forward confidently in the front!
At last, they saw many gigantic mechanic puppets, which were hundreds of meters away from them! But these puppets were not as powerful as Xu Que expected. Each of them had reached the Original Infant Stage. Their bodies, which were covered by faint green light, were made of special bronze material! Behind them, there were several puppets covered by golden light, which had reached the Infant Transformation Stage and were relatively strong.
However, now Xu Que was powerful enough to smash them easily. In order to avoid exposing his strength in front of Zixia Fairy, he had to stop and try to purchase something from the System.
“My fellow cultivator, have you found their weak points?” the cultivators behind him asked anxiously at this time.
Zixia Fairy also looked at Xu Que. If he shook his head, she would take him away immediately.
Xu Que nodded with a smile and said in delight, “I’ve found their weak points!”
“What? Really? That’s great! Tell us where their weak points are, let’s smash them together!” The cultivators were excited by his words.
Xu Que said, pointing at the puppets, “The weak point is its body. If we can break it with brute force, the puppet will be incapacitated!”
“Ah?” The cultivators were dumbfounded immediately.
The weak point is the puppet’s body, which could be broken by brute force?
Crap, everyone knows that!
We would never have retreated if we could break their bodies!
“Damn! We were fooled by this idiot! Let’s retreat!” They started to retreat without any hesitation.
Zixia Fairy was also stunned by Xu Que’s reply, for she didn’t expect Xu Que would give such an embarrassing answer. As the cultivators had predicted, a lot of restrictive spells had been added to these puppets when they were produced, which were immune to the attack of magic arts. Therefore, they could only be damaged by brute force. However, their bodies were too tough and could only be hurt by cultivators at the Infant Transformation Stage who were good at physique cultivation.
“Lady Azi, please wait here for a moment. Let me smash those puppets!” Xu Que said as he dashed forward.
Zixia Fairy’s expression changed, and she shouted, “Joker, wait!”
However, Xu Que didn’t slow down. Whoosh! He waved his hand to take out a red and silver metal box and shouted, “Transform! Iron Man!”
