All of a sudden, Lord Zeng was stunned on the spot. He was so surprised that he could only stare at Xu Que speechlessly. He never expected Xu Que’s personal enemy would be one of the most powerful cultivators in the Xuanzhen Continent. Although he was also one of them, he didn’t want to do anything against him, because the more powerful people were, the more cowardly they would be. Without profound hatred, people at the summit wouldn’t fight each other.
After all, they were only one step away from becoming a celestial. A fierce combat would only cause destruction to both sides. Their personal enemies might attack them by using this as an opportunity. Therefore, it was really unnecessary to fight. However, Lord Zeng had promised to fight for Xu Que. It was too late for him to go back on his word now. So, he was trapped in a dilemma.
“Let’s talk about this in the pagoda!” Lord Zeng said seriously. He waved his hand as he walked inside the pagoda, holding the little Princess by the arm. Xu Que smiled and also walked toward the entrance of the pagoda after winking at Jiang Hongyan in the crowd.
When he entered the pagoda, dozens of warrior monks sealed the entrance directly to prevent others from getting close. At this time, Lord Zeng said with an embarrassed smile, “My young friend, are…you kidding me?” He looked at Xu Que with the last bubble of hope. He surely hoped that what Xu Que said was really a joke.
Xu Que smiled and said, clapping his hands immediately, “Hah-hah-hah, awesome! Lord Zeng, you are really smart! Right, I was kidding just now! Actually, I want everything in his vault, and you can’t get 10 percent!”
Lord Zeng’s lips twitched. He was so angry that he was about to spit blood! When he heard the first half of Xu Que’s words, he let out a sigh of relief. However, when he heard the second half of Xu Que’s words, he inhaled the sigh he had just let out, which almost choked him.
I am talking about the Emperor with you! Nobody wants to talk about his vault!
“My young friend, this is never a laughing matter. The Emperor is as powerful as I am. Also…his daughter is the Empress, who has performed secluded cultivation for several hundred years. How could she be your wife?” Lord Zeng chose to send a message cautiously for he worried someone would hear their conversation.
“Performed secluded cultivation for several hundred years? Heh-heh, what I will say next might startle you!” Xu Que sneered as he turned around to walk toward the entrance. When he walked out of the entrance, he waved his hand at Jiang Hongyan in the crowd, “My dear, please come here. Lord Zeng said he has a welcome gift for you!”
Lord Zeng’s eyes widened. When did I say I that?
Just now you ripped off a Celestial Concealment Herb from me. Now you are going to get more from me?
The next moment, when Jiang Hongyan stepped out gracefully from the crowd, Lord Zeng was stunned. At this time, Jiang Hongyan’s face was still covered by the Human-skinned Mask. When she walked to the entrance of the pagoda, turning her back to the crowd, she took off the mask and showed her real face.
“Lord Zeng, long time, no see!” Jiang Hongyan said with a faint smile. She was so elegant, graceful, and majestic. Her innate royal temperament let the sovereign shine out. Lord Zeng was dumbfounded.
Many years ago, he used to meet the Empress once in a while. So he knew the lady in front of him was the Empress, whose appearance and temperament had never changed. The only thing that surprised him was that the Empress was not as powerful as she had been before. She was just at Level 3 of the Crossing Calamity Stage now.
“I greet you, Holy Senior!” Lord Zeng bowed to Jiang Hongyan symbolically, with a wry smile on his face.
Actually, he didn’t need to obey the rule of the Tong Tian Nation of giving a salute to the Emperor or the Empress. In order to show due respect to Xu Que, Lord Zeng still did that to Jiang Hongyan.
“So, now you believe what I said, right? Alas, Senior Zeng, we are so close now, why do you always doubt what I say? Look at this handsome face. Do I look like a liar?” Xu Que said as he patted his face.
His words totally embarrassed Lord Zeng, who was very anxious to say “Yes”!
However, Lord Zeng was not in a mood to say that now. The appearance of Jiang Hongyan made him believe that Xu Que had really targeted the Emperor! But it was such a difficult decision for him to make. It was OK if he could win. In case he failed, the Myriad Buddhas Sect would be eradicated!
“Brother Zeng, don’t wear a sad face. The Emperor is nothing to be afraid of. Majestic cultivators like us should weigh life and death lightly and defeat anyone who dares to challenge us!” Xu Que persuaded him casually as he put his hand on Lord Zeng’s shoulder like an old acquaintance.
Also, Xu Que had changed his address from Lord Zeng to Senior Zeng, and to Brother Zeng at last!
However, Lord Zeng was not in a mood to care about the address. He said by shaking his head with a wry smile, “My young friend, you could weigh life and death lightly, but I can’t! If something happens to me, my daughter will be lonely and helpless in this world!”
“Don’t worry, I could take care of her for you!” Xu Que promised,patting his chest immediately. Hearing that, Lord Zeng was very anxious to beat him up.
Are you kidding? You will take care of my daughter? She will be turned into a rascal by you!
Moreover, we will go to the Imperial Palace together. Why could you survive when I got killed?
“Alas, buddy, please listen to me. As an old saying goes, nothing ventured, nothing gained. If you help me, maybe I could help you to break the bottleneck to become a Celestial!” Xu Que threw out a temptation at this time.
His words were really effective. Lord Zeng’s eyes lit up, and he looked at Xu Que abruptly, “Young friend, do you mean the Emperor’s God-realization Tree, right? Does it mean…you are willing to give the God-realization Fruit to me?”
“No, no, no! The God-realization Fruit will be mine. That lunatic person carried off a strand of my wife’s soul to cultivate the God-realization Tree. So, I can’t give it to you!” Xu Que waved his hand immediately.
“What?” Lord Zeng changed his expression and turned to Jiang Hongyan directly. Apparently, he tried to ask Jiang Hongyan whether Xu Que’s words were true. He couldn’t believe the Emperor could be so wicked.
Jiang Hongyan, who didn’t change her expression, nodded her head gracefully and calmly.
“Eh….” Lord Zeng opened his mouth in surprise but didn’t know what to say. He never expected the Emperor could cultivate the God-realization Tree in such a wicked and ruthless way.
“My young friend, in this case, how could you help me to become a Celestial by breaking my bottleneck?” Lord Zeng came to the point at last. Because he was tempted by Xu Que’s reward. To become a Celestial by breaking the bottleneck was the ultimate goal of numerous people!
However, so many years had passed, nobody had succeeded in achieving this goal. After reaching their current stage, they would never make a step forward unless they could get celestial elixirs like the God-realization Fruit or the Celestial Bone Fruit!
But what Xu Que said renewed his hope which had almost been given up by him. Lord Zeng was itchy to take a chance!
When Xu Que saw Lord Zeng’s expression, a strand of a faint smile appeared on his lips. A strand of thoughtful light flashed in Xu Que’s pitch-black pupils. Then, he said with a faint smile, “The Exploding Heavens Faction has a unique specialty which could help you to break your bottleneck. And the name of it is the Super New Orleans Invincible Ultimate Grilled Drumstick Burger!”
