5 million best-grade Spirit Stones?
Holy crap! Why don’t you just rob us here?
All at once, all the onlookers opened their eyes wide because of surprise and anger! The purchasing power and economy of the Xuanzhen Continent were similar to that of the four continents. Spirit Stones would never depreciate in this world, and the purchasing power of Spirit Stones was almost identical everywhere! Therefore, the price demanded by Xu Que was high enough to shock all these people.
Even Lord Zeng, a cultivator at the summit of the Great Vehicle Stage, couldn’t spend 5 million best-grade Spirit Stones easily .It was almost equal to 2/5 of his wealth!
Almost all the people in this area were disbanded cultivators, who didn’t come from big families or sects. Their financial resources were quite limited. They would never be able to afford an extremely high price like 5 million best-grade Spirit Stones! Therefore, the onlookers, who were stunned for a while, started to hubbub again.
“This is ridiculous! How could he raise such an unbelievable price?”
“5 million best-grade Spirit Stones? If I had so many Spirit Stones, I would never drift along in this world aimlessly!”
“Exactly! If I had 5 million best-grade Spirit Stones, I’d rather buy other pills to enhance my cultivation stage!”
“I knew things like this couldn’t happen! Nobody could purchase something which could enhance the Soul Strength 50 percent with only 500,000 best- grade Spirit Stones!”
“Damn! But the price of 5 million best-grade Spirit Stones is too high! He is robbing us!”
The onlookers couldn’t help but complain about the price offered by Xu Que, wearing sad faces.
“What you said is correct!” Xu Que said with a smile as he looked at the onlookers. “I am robbing you! I hereby announce that it is the Exploding Heavens Faction’s robbing time now. Men should stand on the left, women should stand on the right, and the demonic beasts should stand in the middle! Surrender everything valuable you have. Remember, I mean everything valuable except needles and threads!”
After saying that, he took out a little dagger and pointed it at the onlookers. All of a sudden, all the onlookers were shocked.
What the hell? How could he rob us for no reason?
Is this for real?
Many people didn’t know what had happened. Even Lord Zeng, who thought Xu Que was kidding, didn’t take it seriously.
At this time, magnificent True Core Strength gushed out from Xu Que’s body into the sky and turned into a sea of flames, which covered a large expanse of sky. All the onlookers were under a high temperature like being grilled by dozens of suns.
“Come on, surrender your possessions if you don’t want to die here!”
“Damn! This guy is really robbing us!”
At this time, all the onlookers, who came to themselves at last, were totally stunned.
Lord Zeng was also dumbfounded on the spot. He didn’t expect Xu Que would rob his guests in front of him in his territory! He was flat-footed by Xu Que’s sudden but wicked action.
“My young friend, what are you doing,” Lord Zeng said hurriedly. He couldn’t allow Xu Que to do that even though Xu Que had saved his daughter. Of course, Lord Zeng didn’t attack Xu Que because he had just saved his daughter; otherwise, Xu Que would have been killed by Lord Zeng.
“Oh, Lord Zeng, ah-hah-hah-hah, I’m sorry. I forgot this is your place! Don’t worry. The Exploding Heavens Faction is a faction of principle. We won’t attack others unless we are attacked. Lord Zeng didn’t offend me before, I will not rob in Lord Zeng’s territory!” Xu Que said as he waved his hand with a smile. The magnificent flame sea in the sky disappeared immediately.
Of course, what he did could only be a joke at this time. After all, he needed an ally like Lord Zeng at this time to rival the Emperor. Therefore, he wouldn’t offend Lord Zeng seriously. However, as the Act-Tough Saint, he didn’t want to waste any opportunity to act tough. So, he did that just now to earn some Acting Tough Points.
Seeing his reaction, the onlookers couldn’t help but wipe off the sweat on their foreheads speechlessly.
However, Xu Que’s action had totally impressed those onlookers, who were quite sure that they couldn’t offend this guy easily. Otherwise, the revenge from this guy would be definitely unaffordable for them!
The examples of the Demonic Pill Old Man, Yun Yang Zi, and Zhuo Feng were quite convincing. The mighty Master Alchemists and Grandmaster Alchemist, who were so distinguished in the Xuanzhen Continent, were still almost driven mad by Xu Que. Moreover, these mighty alchemists couldn’t seek revenge.
After all, Lord Zeng could be deemed as Xu Que’s backer when Xu Que cured the little Princess’s weird disease. Lord Zeng promised to fight for Xu Que for once. At this time, even the stupidest guys would know they couldn’t afford to offend Xu Que!
“My young friend, you are so funny. I really like making friends with humorous people like you!” Lord Zeng also said with a smile at this time. Xu Que showed respect to him, so he would show more respect to Xu Que. His words had hinted to the onlookers that Xu Que had become a friend of Lord Zeng from now on.
The Demonic Pill Old Man, Yun Yang Zi, and Zhuo Feng darkened their faces, but they didn’t dare to say anything. They knew Xu Que would be out of their reach for a while.
“Lord Zeng, since little Princess’s disease has been cured, we will leave now. See you next time!” the Demonic Pill Old Man said. He couldn’t punish Xu Que here, so he didn’t want to waste any more time in this place.
Yun Yang Zi and Zhuo Feng also said goodbye to Lord Zeng.
“OK. I really appreciate your participation today. Please don’t hesitate to come to me for anything I can do for you in future!” Lord Zeng nodded his head with a kind smile to show due respect to them.
The Demonic Pill Old Man, Yun Yang Zi, and Zhuo Feng softened their faces as they turned around to leave.
Xu Que squinted his eyes at them. When they were far away, Xu Que said as he looked at Lord Zeng with a smile, “Lord Zeng, could you tell me their addresses? Hey, Lord Zeng, don’t look at me like that. They are lonely and helpless old men, I am going to convey warmness to them when I have time in the future!”
“Hah-hah, my young friend, we should forgive others whenever we can! Please do me a favor and just let them go!” Lord Zeng replied with a smile. Of course, he wouldn’t tell the whereabouts of the abodes of the Demonic Pill Old Man, Yun Yang Zi, and Zhuo Feng to Xu Que.
Xu Que didn’t importune Lord Zeng but nodded his head secretly in his heart.
Apparently, Lord Zeng was a nice person. As a cultivator at an extremely high cultivation stage, he was not arrogant like other powerhouses. On the contrary, he was quite suave and loyal to his friends. Even though Xu Que had saved his daughter, he wouldn’t sell out his friends!
“By the way, my young friend, who is your personal enemy you mentioned before? Maybe I could do you a special favor to solve this personal dispute for you. In this way, you don’t need to worry about your safety in future!” Lord Zeng, who remembered he had promised to help Xu Que before, asked at this time.
Xu Que waved his hand, “You can’t solve this dispute. Because my personal enemy is my father-in-law! However, he carried off a strand of my wife’s soul. Therefore, the dispute between he and I is irreconcilable!”
“What? I didn’t expect someone could be so lunatic to carry off the soul of his daughter!” Lord Zeng was annoyed immediately.
He was also a father and he loved his daughter very much. He would do anything for the little Princess. Therefore, it was unimaginable for him that someone could carry off the soul from his biological child.
“Alas, what you said is correct. This man is unbelievably lunatic. So, instead of hiding from him, I will get rid of him!” Xu Que said, nodding his head.
Lord Zeng said seriously with a strong sense of righteousness, “My young friend, please don’t worry. I will kill this lunatic person personally. Just tell me, who is he?”
“OK! Very good! I really admire righteous people like you! Actually, that guy is nothing extraordinary. He is the Emperor of the Tong Tian Nation. Lord Zeng, a few days from now, we could work together to crack down his lair and open his vault to share his precious items. You will take 10 percent and I’ll take 90 percent!” Xu Que said excitedly as he patted Lord Zeng’s shoulder.
When Lord Zeng was about to agree by nodding subconsciously, he sensed something was wrong and stopped his words immediately.
The Emperor of the Tong Tian Nation?
Holy crap! This is not OK at all!
I didn’t expect your personal enemy to be the Emperor of the Tong Tian Nation!
I was fooled by you!
