“Forget it, stop throwing her! I have more important things to do. I’m not wasting my time playing throwing wives with you!” Xu Que called a stop to this when he finally had his fill of fun. The Acting Tough Points had also stopped rising.
Cang Feng and his many followers from the Grey Ebb Faction secretly heaved a sigh of relief. Smiles returned to their faces on hearing Xu Que’s words. It was all right to lose their resources. Give or take a few more years and they could always kill, rob, and earn back what they had lost today. The most pressing issue now was to stay alive. Once the Grey Ebb Faction expanded in the future, who knows, they might even be strong enough to go up against the Exploding Heavens Faction! They could then wash away the shame they experienced today!
However, the next moment, the sentence that popped out of Xu Que’s mouth froze them to the ground.
“Hurry up and choose the way you want to die! You could choose to do it yourself, or you could wait for me to do it. My advice is that you should do it yourself, as my power is so overwhelming that I might flatten you like a pie!” Xu Que commented coolly as if talking about something insignificant.
Followers of the Grey Ebb Faction quickly paled at his words.
After all that, we still have to die?
This guy was indeed like the rumors! His heart was stone-cold and ruthless!
Everyone stood dazed for a moment, before nodding knowingly and calmly. As this was the Xu Que they knew. At first, he seems like a nonchalant fellow who just loved to troll people. Alas, once he manages to trap his target, he transforms into a demon king, steel-fisted and cruel, leaving no escape route for his prey! Thinking back, he had wiped out the whole of the Lord’s family when they offended him. A mere Grey Ebb Faction could never compare!
“Xu…fellow cultivator Xu, you.… This is against the rules. I had already offered you all of my resources! According to the rules, you…you can’t kill us!” Cang Feng’s face turned white as his voice trembled in fear. He finally felt true fear for Xu Que. Moreover, even he himself was unconvinced by his own words. Because nobody, including himself, observed this supposed rule. Even when the victims had handed over their valuables, he would still kill them so long as he disliked them. That’s why, when he said that out loud, everyone shook their heads and laughed.
Ignore the fact that nobody obeyed those rules; even if it was carved in stone, it’d be strange if Xu Que followed them! This guy was born to break the rules!
“Rules? Ho, ho, sorry to say, but there’s no such rule in the Exploding Heavens Faction!”
As everyone had predicted, Xu Que smiled slightly and his eyes narrowed. “The rule of our Exploding Heavens Faction is that if you leave a line for your enemies, they might leave you a life in the future! That’s why when we rob people, we insist on leaving a thread and a needle. However, here comes the problem!”
Xu Que paused.
Everyone perked up their ears.
Members of the Grey Ebb Faction, even Cang Feng and Mo Lan, all fixed their gazes on Xu Que, trying to figure what the problem was.
Finally, Xu Que raised Cang Feng’s storage ring, and said solemnly, “The problem is that when I checked the ring, all I see within it are Spirit Stones and magical weapons! Since there’s not a single thread or needle to be found, ask yourselves, how do I even leave a lifeline for you guys?”
The whole area fell deadly silent.
Since there are no thread and needle, there’s no lifeline to be left for them?
Crap, you call that a reason?
You do see a lot more when you live long enough!
Cang Feng’s irises constricted at Xu Que’s answer. To him, this kind of reason was just plain bullying! The tragic part was that he couldn’t find a reason to rebut him – it was a real shutdown!
“See, even you guys are keeping mum. Does that mean that you fellas agree with what I’m saying? Hurry up, the sooner you die, the sooner you reincarnate. Don’t bother me in your next life!” Xu Que waved annoyedly and signaled them to commit suicide quickly.
Cang Feng laughed tragically, “To think that a great hero like me, Cang Feng, will meet my end here! Xu Que, you are more powerful than any of us, so you can say anything you want. I shall accept my defeat!”
After saying that, he slightly closed his eyes, as if he was ready to meet his death. However, at the next moment, with a plop, Cang Feng suddenly fell to his knees! With both knees on the ground, he suddenly began to kowtow. Tears ran down his face as he cried, “Spare me! Senior Xu, I beg of you! You are a great person who is magnanimous. Please let me off! I don’t want to die! I don’t want to die!”
Xu Que almost spat.
Everyone was also confused.
What kind of fucking play was that? He seemed resigned entirely, then in seconds turned into a coward? Was he admitting to his mistakes while kowtowing?
To the Grey Ebb Faction, he was the most influential leader and the esteemed powerhouse in the Infant Transformation Stage. To think that he was so prideful before! He’s such a coward right now.
They must have been blind to have followed such a person!
In bright daylight, people’s hearts are not as kind. Even someone like him can reach the Infant Transformation Stage? What a shame!
Sigh! “Forget it then! Commit self-destruction of cultivation, then scram!” screamed Xu Que suddenly.
Xu Que had stunned them all once again.
There’s a day when Xu Que could be merciful?
Crap, did the sun rise from the west today?
So the demon king can be kind!
Plop! Plop! Plop!
Almost immediately, without asking, the people of the Grey Ebb Faction kneeled and began to kowtow as loud as they could! Between committing self-destruction of cultivation and suicide, all would know how to choose! Though both are terrible choices.
Sigh! “Forget it! Genuine kindness and love exist in the world. I’ll give you a moment to destroy your cultivation and then get out of my sight. If any of you dares to muddle through, I promise that you’ll be better off dead!” Xu Que threatened, his eyes icy. This time, he was indeed feeling merciful!
On some issues, he didn’t want to go overboard. As a cultivator in the Void Training Stage, insisting on killing these ordinary people no longer held any meaning for him. It was like a person seeing a group of ants passing by. He wouldn’t spare any attention to them, not even a glance. Killing them would be a waste of effort.
Such is the stance of a powerhouse. Xu Que wouldn’t need to lift a finger; with a word or a sentence, it is enough to make people give up their all. Having lived in a world of cultivators for so many years, Xu Que understood well that bandit sects like the Grey Ebb Faction, who kill and rob their victims, exist everywhere.
No matter which faction you belong to, righteous or evil, you can’t help but feel greed as long as you’re a human. Even if he had eradicated a Grey Ebb Faction today, countless others would still emerge in the future. What he did would not have helped the world, for killing and robbing for treasure have been long happening anytime and anywhere in this world.
He was not a messiah to save the world, nor was he a messenger of justice. He was just…a human! Making them destroy their cultivation was enough.
In the end, all members of the Grey Ebb Faction destroyed their Dantian and all of their cultivation in front of Xu Que. As such, they would never be able to cultivate again in their lives. Nobody had dared to cheat. Since they were scum who bully the kind and cower to the strong, they were already thankful that they were simply allowed to live. The group of people quickly scattered in all directions after thanking Xu Que.
However, many present were cultivators that they had robbed before. Some of them had already quietly followed them, preparing to take revenge. Xu Que saw but was too lazy to stop them. He had done enough for today. Other people’s business was none of his business!
Sigh! “Where people are, chaos follows! When will my wish for world peace finally come true?”
Xu Que sighed with his hands behind his back. He then rode on a bolt of lightning and flew away.
Everyone looked at his back disappearing into a distance, their hearts conflicted.
Did you wish for world peace?
Please, boss, would you stop joking?
With you around, how could this world be peaceful?
With that, Xu Que had successfully earned quite a sum of Acting Tough Points. Catch every opportunity to act tough – this is the way!
The corners of his mouth lifted into a smile and wiped away that look that he’s oh so worried about world peace. He flew straight to Snow City.
A few hours later, he finally managed to reach that familiar snowy world. Looking at the boisterous and prosperous Snow City, he yelled agitatedly, “Situ Haitang, come on out! Your baby Xu Que is back!”
