Chapter 808: Asking For Death!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
That was the day that the human cultivators almost went mad with anger. Those who thought they had hit the jackpot had underestimated Xu Que. How could Xu Que be so immoral that he would run away after only killing 500 giants? He even made excuses saying that it was a win-win situation!
Win-win their ass!
How could someone so shameless exist?
Could it be that those great Spiritual Stones on him were a scam?
He’s so wicked that no one dared to be his friend!
However, Xu Que did something good in the end. The human cultivators were very likely to lose that day. Should that happen, they would have suffered significant losses. Although Xu Que only caused the Heaven Orc Tribe to lose 500 giants, he had directly disrupted the Orcs’ formation, damaging their morale, and thus had brought the battle to an early end. The Generals of the Heaven Orc Tribe had withdrawn their troops and retreated temporarily. Thanks to that, the human cultivators were able to return safely to their camps. However, in the camps, chaos ensued.
Countless people gathered in front of the Ranking Chart for Soldiers and were shocked to see that brand-new name on the ranks.
“In just two days, he shot straight up to the 103rd place on the list!”
“Although he is dishonest, his strength is undeniable!’
“Where on earth did Li Bai from the Exploding Heavens Faction pop up from? Why have we not heard of this faction and his name?”
“In any case, it seems like he will make it into the Top 10 if he takes part in another battle!”
“Top 10? You exaggerate. Despite his recent rapid rise in ranking, he’s got a big gap in achievements to make up for to enter the Top 100!”
“Yes, when it comes to the top 100, the difference between each placing is comparable to a whole new rank!”
“And the Top 30 are all from the Divine Son Division!”
“At his current speed of killing enemies, he would need seven consecutive days of battle to make it into the Top 30!”
They might have been gossiping, but deep down inside, they still admired Xu Que’s strength. Although his rank was not considered high, no one doubted his ability. With enough time, sooner or later he would make it into the Top 30 of the Ranking Chart for Generals! That way, he would also have proved his worth to enter the Divine Son Division. As for whether or not he could top the Divine Son Division? Nobody ever thought about it, because everyone thought it was impossible.
At the same time, in a camp, a middle-aged man sat on a chair as he looked at the few young men before him. A portrait was laid out on the table. It was Xu Que in his disguise, and, under the picture, the following was written in small print: Exploding Heavens Faction: Li Bai. Origin unknown.
“I have verified this child’s potential. He is qualified to join the Divine Son Division!” said the middle-aged man as he tapped his finger gently on the case.
The young men immediately frowned and exchanged glances. One of them said, “Commander, he hails from a land unknown. Shouldn’t we carry out a thorough investigation before we decide?”
“There’s no need. As members of the Divine Son Division, you all will find out where he is, and invite him into the Divine Son Division on my behalf.” The middle-aged man shook his head and ordered sternly. The young men did not dare to disagree with his words. They quickly accepted their task and left the tent.
Meanwhile, Xu Que had already returned to the inn with Jiang Hongyan. The Escape Emblem was considerate for once and sent them directly back to the ancient city, where they took a rest in the Inn. As soon as she entered the room, Jiang Hongyan sat down and started to meditate. She never lost her cool no matter where she was. Even in meditation, she was dignified, elegant, and graceful.
Xu Que shook his head and smiled bitterly, “Little Missy, you shouldn’t live like that, always immersed in your practice. When will you finally realize the joy of life? Come on. I’ll make some lollipops or ice pops for you to lick!”
Amused, Jiang Hongyan opened her eyes and smiled faintly: “Unlike you, I can’t break through in Cultivation Stage during battle. If I slack off in my Cultivation, you’ll surpass me in less than half a year!”
“Taken by me…. Bah no, what’s wrong with being overtaken by me? With me here, nobody can hurt you!” Xu Que said as he sat down beside Jiang Hongyan. Unable to keep his hands to himself, he put his arm on Jiang Hongyan’s shoulder, while slipping down as if it was an unintentional move.
Jiang Hongyan blinked her beautiful eyes and looked at Xu Que, “Should you overtake me, I bet you’d take the bullying further.”
“When did I ever bully you? Hey, what’s going on, who is it? Who put my hand there? It’s too much!” Xu Que answered righteously and rested his palm honestly on Jiang Hongyan’s shoulder, not budging a centimeter.
He understood Jiang Hongyan’s character very well. She was mature, dignified, and detailed. He should not press her too hard. So before he reached a certain level of intimacy with her, he was better off following the traditional way of modesty. Just like the mutual respect between husband and wife, likened to a river carving a channel, he had to go slow and steady. Otherwise, even if he had taken advantage of her now, she would have cut off any future advances he wished to make.
Xu Que inevitably sighed at the thought of that. A woman that only a holy god can woo; winning her heart was not easy! Just then, something unexpected happened!
With a slight smile on her face, Jiang Hongyan leaned her head toward Xu Que’s shoulder, in an extraordinarily natural, yet elegant way. Caught off guard by this unexpected act, Xu Que fell silent, las if a cat had caught his tongue.
Did she finally sort out her thinking?
Is she hinting something?
Xu Que’s heartbeat could not help but quicken. It was as if he had returned to his youth, the same kind of palpitation he experienced when he was alone with his first love.
Jiang Hongyan was perfect, perfect beyond criticism. What captivated him most was her indifferent but noble temperament, it was so exceptionally charming that she could be called a goddess. It was enough to make all men in the world not dare to taint her and think themselves as unworthy.
However, words like “inferiority complex” were never in Xu Que’s dictionary. Someone as thick-skinned as him would strive for whatever he wanted. On the other hand, if he didn’t want it, nobody could force him to take it.
Right now, Jiang Hongyan’s initiative to lean on his shoulder invigorated him. The hand that he managed to keep down began to feel ticklish again. Slowly, it snuck toward Jiang Hongyan’s chest.
“Don’t be cheeky, little one!” Jiang Hongyan scolded softly, a faint smile on her lips and her eyes still shut. Xu Que’s hand went stiff at once and stopped in its tracks.
Just a little, only a little more, and I could have touched it!
No, he can’t give up halfway!
“Eh, I see a bug on you, young lady! Here, let me get rid of it!” Xu Que promptly found a lame excuse and tried to continue. However, before he could start, there was a sudden movement at the door.
Someone hit the door with considerable force. The whole door was instantly pushed open. Three young men appeared before them.
“Why! It seems like we should have chosen a better time to arrive!” One of the men immediately made a joke when he saw Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan together.
The trio came unannounced and barged in without even knocking. The three men ignored what Jiang Hongyan and Xu Que were doing and walked in with a sense of superiority on their faces. Jiang Hongyan’s beautiful eyebrows faintly furrowed and looked wintry at the three men. Xu Que quickly soured and his face blackened to an extreme. He was lucky not to have done anything just now. Otherwise, those three would have gotten a free show when they barged in!
You are asking for death!
