Chapter 865: I Have Been Here Before!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
What is…going on?
All at once, all the onlookers were stunned. Even the powerhouses of the Imperial Palace were confused.
Before, Xu Que had said that he would publicize the news that they killed the Saint Palace’s Young Master. He was so sturdy and righteous that the Imperial Palace’s powerhouses almost abandoned themselves to despair!
Even the rest of the onlookers in this area couldn’t stand it anymore.
After all, all of them knew clearly that the Imperial Palace’s powerhouses would end up miserably, which would be more terrible than death, if this issue was publicized. Also, a war might break out between the Imperial Palace and the Saint Palace, which would drag the entire Xuanzhen Continent into chaos!
None of them expected that Xu Que, who condemned them justly and severely one second ago, would ask for hush money the next second! It turned out Xu Que’s action just now was to prepare the ground for his hush money!
After realizing what happened, the onlookers almost spat blood!
His sudden wickedness is really unexpectedly destructive!
Howl! “Little brat, awesome! Without the hush money, I will also publicize today’s issue. It’s up to you!” Buttface shouted excitedly as he held his head high! Apparently, he could only be so valiant in scenarios like this.
The powerhouses of the Imperial Palace couldn’t help but twitch their lips. However, they let out a sigh of relief secretly. They would be saved as long as they could stop Xu Que from publicizing the news at any cost.
“My fellow cultivator, what do you want? We’ll give you anything we have!” The Imperial Palace’s powerhouses said without hesitation as they looked at Xu Que.
They knew clearly that Xu Que was the key person at this moment. They didn’t care about the rest of the people in this area. They believed Xu Que would keep a secret for this issue after receiving the hush money from them.
“Whatever you have, just give it to me, except for a single needle and a piece of thread! Also, you should continue to act as our vanguards, is that OK for you?” Xu Que asked with a smile.
His question suffocated the Imperial Palace’s powerhouses all at once.
He wants us to surrender everything we have, except for a single needle and a piece of thread!
And we should continue to act as his vanguards!
This is so wicked! Why don’t you just kill us here?
“Holy crap! Why do you keep silent? Is it unacceptable for you? OK, just wait here, and I’ll publicize the news now! You are doomed!” Buttface clamored and was about to rush out as if nobody could stop him. However, he didn’t move at last.
“Buttface, go!” Xu Que also shouted.
The powerhouses of the Imperial Palace said immediately, “Wait, my fellow cultivator, we accept your request!” After saying that, they clenched their teeth and surrendered all their storage rings to Xu Que.
“Good!” Xu Que threw the storage rings into the System package casually, without even seeing them carefully.
Xu Que’s reaction embarrassed them. His fluent action meant this was not the first time he had done that. He could be deemed as a habitual offender!
Damn! How could our mighty Empress like this bandit?
They couldn’t help but look at Jiang Hongyan. However, Jiang Hongyan was still standing there calmly without any mood swings as if this was quite common for her.
“That’s enough! Let’s go. Our journey is to the sea of stars!” Xu Que shouted as he raised his arms to enhance the morale of the team.
The rest of the people couldn’t help but twitch their lips.
The sea of stars?
Stop your nonsense for we are not sure whether we could survive this time!
The powerhouses of the Imperial Palace could do nothing but lead the way for Xu Que. However, also because of this, their trip became much easier.
No matter how weak those powerhouses of the Imperial Palace were, they were excellent ones among cultivators at the Crossing Calamity Stage. With them as the team’s vanguards, Xu Que was quite relieved.
Once they came across danger, the powerhouses would be endangered first. Therefore, they had to step up their vigilance to guard against any obstacles on the road. However, to their surprise, they didn’t encounter any obstacles.
Although they found many spell Arrays and restrictive spells on their way, most of them had been destroyed by others. Some of them had even perished because of the erosion of time. Several days had passed, and they didn’t encounter any dangerous situations on their way. Hopes were rising among them again. In this way, they would arrive at the position where Zhang Tiandao had been soon, and could even reach the end of the Road of Heavenly Ascension.
“According to the map, we will arrive at the place where Zhang Tiandao was trapped in a few hours!” A powerhouse of the Imperial Palace said excitedly.
“So many years have passed. I guess that spell might have been broken!”
“Exactly! Also, according to Zhang Tiandao’s description of that place, the end of the Road of Heavenly Ascension will be the place where the Space Breaking Spell can be used!”
“It’s hard to say. The Emperor said they used to reach the end. However, when they came back again, the end of the Road of Heavenly Ascension had disappeared! I guess there are more than one ends of this Road of Heavenly Ascension, or there might be many fake ends, or…I mean the end of this road changes all the time!”
Although nobody knew where the end of the Road of Heavenly Ascension was and what could be found at the end of this road exactly, these people still tried to satisfy their curiosity by reaching the end. After all, the end of this road represented the hope of becoming a Celestial!
As for the Space Breaking Spell, these people had already given up hope. Everyone knew Xu Que would obtain it for sure!
The female cultivators of the Exquisite Beauty Pavilion, as well as those disbanded cultivators and the demonic beasts who were walking behind, couldn’t help but exclaim in their minds. They never expected a young man who they despised at the very beginning could get all the powerhouses of the Saint Palace and most of the powerhouses of the Imperial Palace killed in several days. The remaining powerhouses of the Imperial Palace, who were lingering on their last breaths, were ordered to act as cannon fodder for him!
His amazing performance shocked every one of them. A cultivator at the Form Synthesis Stage, who was a prey in the Road of Heavenly Ascension, became a predator instantly. His tricks were so wicked and dirty, which could even be described as the worst. Nobody dared to defy him.
“This time we bet on the wrong horse!” The tall female cultivator of the Exquisite Beauty Pavilion exclaimed with a wry smile, as she looked at Xu Que and the Empress from behind.
The rest of the female cultivators also nodded with complicated expressions.
At the very beginning, they wondered why the Empress could like such a young man. Now, when they saw Xu Que and the Empress who were walking side by side, they couldn’t feel anything wrong but were quite sure that Xu Que and the Empress were a perfect match!
They continued to move forward.
Several hours later, they arrived at the position marked on the map.
“Finally, we’ve arrived!” A powerhouse of the Imperial Palace shouted excitedly.
As long as they could find where Zhang Tiandao was trapped and the Space Breaking Spell, the path they chose would be proven as correct and they might find the end of the Road of Heavenly Ascension!
“After passing the passage in front of us, we will see the spell where Zhang Tiandao was trapped!” A powerhouse said, nodding his head excitedly.
Xu Que also squinted his eyes expectantly. The Space Breaking Spell, which was his hope to go back to Earth, was just in front of him!
“Let’s go and have a look!” Xu Que shouted.
The rest of the people also cheered up and started to move forward together.
At the same time, all of them stepped up their vigilance. If the spell which trapped Zhang Tiandao was still there, they would have a big problem to overcome!
When they had just passed the corner in the passage in front of them, a sound of wind entered, together with a biting chilliness.
“Wait, stop here!” Xu Que shouted, furrowing his eyebrows. He had an ominous feeling that an inexplicable danger was approaching!
“Something is wrong here!” Jiang Hongyan also frowned and said seriously.
The rest of the people were surprised, but they could sense nothing from the pitch-dark passage in front of them.
“Holy Senior, my fellow cultivator, what is wrong with this place?” The powerhouses of the Imperial Palace turned around and asked.
Xu Que shook his head. He didn’t know how to answer them.Just like Jiang Hongyan, he also felt something was wrong in this place.
Suddenly, Buttface shouted in surprise, “Holy crap! I guess…I have been here before. It is not a killing spell at all!”
