At this moment, the flames of war raged across the battlefield. The Heaven Orc Tribe attacked ferociously. With a raiding team of dozens of giants, they had successfully torn through the first line of defense of the human cultivators. Then, the army pressed in and launched a full-on attack. It was amazingly effective!
Blinding and eminent spells roared atop the battlefield. Figures of the defeated fell steadily through the air, among which were human cultivators and giant orcs. If you were counting, you could see that humans formed the majority. There was a reason for the humans being so severely beaten up and being forced to retreat. Xu Que had to take half of the responsibility.
In the beginning, the humans had been vigilant. They fought aggressively with the Heaven Orc Tribe, where they were locked in a fierce struggle. However, just a few days ago, Xu Que suddenly appeared on the battlefield. In only three days, he slaughtered the giants like ants and attracted all their attention and hatred.
Human cultivators could do nothing but watch during this whole process. Too stunned, they had involuntarily relaxed their vigilance. They had formed a tacit understanding that Xu Que was whom the Heaven Orc Tribe was afraid of and that, with Xu Que present, the orcs would not attack them so quickly. Nevertheless, the orcs had developed into such a colossal force today, they were not to be trifled with.
After three days of ‘Xu Que chaos’, they resolutely went against the norm. With great decisiveness, they dispatched dozens of large teams of Heavenly Orcs to launch a sudden attack. Should they fail, the Heavenly Orcs would be even more demoralized.
However, should they succeed, they would have a good chance of taking over the area. Now, it seemed that the orcs were right; victory was within their reach.
“Kill! As long as it’s a human, kill them all! We the Heaven Orc Tribe do not let the prisoners live!” On the battlefield, the Generals of the Heavenly Orcs roared and shouted, boosting their morale. Blinded by the battle spirit, countless giants of the Heaven Orc Tribe rushed madly forward.
On the other hand, Qin Wei, the only person at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage, was not in the camp. The remaining dozen people of the Divine Son Division were arrogant and unconcerned. Without Qin Wei’s orders, they refused to join the war and looked on coldly. As a result, the hearts of the people fell apart quickly. Under the fierce impact of the giant beasts, the cultivators became increasingly demoralized.
The battle situation of the whole battlefield could be described as crushing. The human cultivators were beaten to a pulp, and their formations were chaotic. Many people simply ran aimlessly about, and they promptly turned into free kills for the giants.
“We are finished. The battle is over. Let’s run!” Someone finally broke down and suggested in panic.
“He’s right! We are not real soldiers anyway; we are fighting just for merit, so in the face of such an impossible war, there is no need to die in vain!” Someone immediately responded.
However, these people immediately attracted the glare of many cultivators.
“Hear yourself! We are holding down the territory of our people. Are we going to hand over our land to the orcs?” said a righteous man, his face red with anger.
“Yes! When did we humans fall to be this pathetic? Can you please have some guts?”
“Kill! At most, we die! To preserve the honor of the people, I’m willing to battle to the death!”
Many people still did not want to retreat. They roared thunderously and rushed to the battlefield! Nevertheless, with their strength alone, they could not compete with the orcs, who outnumbered and outlasted them. The human cultivators were still retreating!
“Ha, ha, ha, I told ya! In front of us, humans are just like a group of ants!”
“Look at how vulnerable they are. What a joke!”
“Those men, including Li Bai, were so white and tender! Such a thin frame, they would lose to even the women of my family!”
“By taking over this territory, we must wash all the cities within this radius with pools of blood, to prove the dignity of our race!”
“Good, well said! Ha, ha, ha, we must kill to our heart’s content!”
The Heaven Orc giants laughed proudly and thought that victory was imminent. It was as easy as pickpocketing!
Just then, thunder burst from afar across the sky.
At first, nobody paid attention to it. After all, the battlefield was chaotic enough. The various explosions of spells going off were so deafening that no one cared about the few thunder cracks. However, the sky quickly grew darker. The thunder sounded louder by the second, and many people began to notice something wrong.
“What’s the situation?”
“Why is the sky getting darker and darker?”
“And that thunder! Something is wrong!”
“The atmosphere is weird too. There is a sense of oppressive suffocation, and it’s intensifying!”
Both the human cultivators and the orcs slowed down their battle and begun to check the skies distractedly. Not long after, a figure propping a large thundercloud above him finally appeared in their vision. It was Xu Que! He had arrived from far away. His speed was fast, and the thundercloud over his head contained a second bolt of golden lightning. It was larger than its predecessor!
Deafening thunder boomed again.
Xu Que had arrived near the battlefield just on time. The second golden lightning came at last and, with unfathomable speed, flew toward Xu Que and chased him in a crazy manner.
“OMG!” The whole audience suddenly paled and screamed in alarm!
“Crap, isn’t this fella Li Bai of the Exploding Heavens Faction?”
“He’s crossing his Heavenly Tribulations!”
“That can’t be! Wasn’t he at the fifth or sixth level of the Void Training Stage just the other day? Why did the Crossing of his Calamity Stage take place so quickly?”
“Come on, run! His tribulations seem wrong!”
“What the hell, a bolt of golden lightning? Ancient Catastrophe?”
“Li Bai, you mother. Don’t run over to us!”
“Crap, Li Bai, don’t come over, you – !”
When the cultivators saw the enormous golden lightning behind Xu Que, they were immediately terrified and howled. And so, especially, did the orcs. They almost spewed blood on the spot.
With just a bit more time, they would have crushed the human race, and victory would be won! However, Xu Que came out of nowhere again and rushed to them while bearing his Heavenly Tribulations; he had intended to drag them into his tribulations!
However, most of the cultivators of the human race were surprised and pleased that Xu Que had come with his calamity thunderclouds. Xu Que’s arrival had suddenly boosted their morale and confidence. Especially so when he arrived with the thunderclouds. Many people had already guessed what he wanted to do! Suddenly, many human cultivators saw hope. They cried out silently in their hearts that the human race is saved!
“Be careful!” Xu Que warned the crowd from midair.
Everyone went still for a moment. Before anyone could respond, they heard Xu Que continue to shout, “Thunder is coming, and so is the rain! Time to collect your laundry!”
As soon as his voice fell, another deafening thunder cracked in the sky. No one could keep their mouths from twitching.
Rain your ass!
Collect your goddamn clothes!
You’re crossing your Calamity Stage for god’s sake, and you’ve still got the time to fool around?
“Eh? Orcs, you are here again?”
Xu Que glued his eyes on the giant beasts. Pleased and surprised, he said, “It’s great that there are so many present today. I missed you all so much! Let’s shake hands and embrace to promote friendship between the two races!”
After saying that, Xu Que stepped on his lightning bolt and flew toward the Heaven Orc giants, at the speed that only Xu Que himself could surpass!
