Xu Que looked at Jiang Hongyan in surprise.
More than one month ago, Jiang Hongyan merged her soul with that which had been extracted from the God-realization Tree. Xu Que didn’t expect that she could become so powerful in such a short period, but she had just killed a powerhouse at the Crossing Calamity Stage easily.
Before that, Jiang Hongyan could only kill cultivators whose cultivation stage was two or three levels higher than hers. Moreover, her targets also had time to organize their defenses. But the Heavenly Human cultivator she had just killed was at Level 8 of the Crossing Calamity Stage!
Most important, Tian Cheng had had no time to react. He was killed instantly. The entire process was finished in a blink of an eye!
Awesome, my Hongyan!
At the same time, Jiang Hongyan lowered her hand and said, as she looked at Xu Que with a faint smile, “Your attack would be too noisy. Just let me handle him!”
“OK!” Xu Que nodded. If he attacked just now, he would make some noise. His attack would never be as quiet as that of Jiang Hongyan. His magic art was powerful enough, but too noisy! Jiang Hongyan’s magic arts were just like herself – quiet, graceful, and lethal!
Xu Que’s magic arts were also like himself – overbearing, noisy, and fatal!
Therefore, if he had attacked just now, Tian Cheng would have also been killed instantly. However, if other Heavenly Human cultivators were startled, there would have been more unnecessary troubles. Since Jiang Hongyan was so powerful, she would be an ideal assassinator in the future.
“Buttface, find a place to bury this guy. Hongyan and I will obtain the Heavenly Human Plates in the Heavenly Human Pavilion. Later, meet us at the foot of that mountain!”
Buttface, who was terrified by Xu Que’s order, said immediately, “Damn! I won’t do that, never and ever!”
Puff! “You are really a coward! Forget it, just don’t make troubles when you enter the Heavenly Human Pavilion!” Xu Que shook his head as he flicked his finger to shoot out a strand of black mystical fire.
The mystical fire created white fumes in the air. When the black flame reached Tian Cheng’s body, it started to burn rapidly like a piece of paper. In a blink of an eye, the entire body was turned into ashes, which were blown away by the wind.
“Damn! Little brat, you can handle the corpse so easily, why did you ask me to do that?” Buttface said angrily.
“I just wanted to test your courage. You really disappointed me!” Xu Que shook his head exasperatedly.
Actually, Xu Que worried Buttface would make troubles for him. Buttface would be terrified by those who were stronger than him. However, before he ran away, he would definitely act arrogantly, which always would cause trouble easily.
However, after careful consideration, Xu Que realized Buttface would be more likely to make trouble if he was asked to do something alone. Xu Que decided to take Buttface with him, so that he could discipline Buttface if Buttface defied his orders.
Soon, Jiang Hongyan concealed their aura with the Celestial Concealment Herb again. Two people and a dog continued to move forward stealthily.
The Heavenly Human Pavilion, which was located on the top of the mountain, was quite eye-catching. A conspicuous plaque with “Heavenly Human Pavilion” on it was hanging outside it. Therefore, Xu Que killed Tian Cheng directly after collecting enough information.
A moment later, Xu Que, Jiang Hongyan, and Buttface sneaked into the Heavenly Human Pavilion quietly. Although they encountered several Heavenly Human cultivators on their way, they were not detected because of the Celestial Concealment Herb.
Buttface was quite obedient. He knew there were a lot of cultivators at the summit of the Great Vehicle Stage in this place. He didn’t dare to make any trouble. Therefore, he chose to close his mouth tightly as he followed Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan.
In this way, they walked through several defensive lines easily.
Maybe because this was the Heavenly Human Tribe’s territory, they wouldn’t set up heavy defenses with a lot of manpower and material resources. The Heavenly Human Pavilion was only guarded by several powerhouses against any theft from their own people.
When Xu Que entered the gate of the Heavenly Human Pavilion, his powerful Soul Strength had sensed at least 400 to 500 cultivators were in this building. However, most of them were performing secluded cultivation on different floors. Their auras were quite smooth and steady.
Only an aura from a powerhouse at Level 5 of the Great Vehicle Stage was flickering in the main hall of the first floor. Xu Que walked up quietly as he concentrated his True Core Strength in his eyes. Then, he found the powerhouse was a white-haired old woman. She was refreshing her spirit by closing her eyes in a rocking chair with an ancient book in her hand.
“Let me handle her!” Jiang Hongyan, who was standing beside Xu Que, raised her hand without hesitation after seeing that.
Xu Que stopped her immediately. He said with a smile, “Her death might cause trouble for us. This time let me do it!”
After saying that, he sneaked into the Heavenly Human Pavilion by holding his breath under the effect of the Celestial Concealment Herb.
The white-haired old woman opened her cloudy eyes abruptly when Xu Que approached her. Then, she spotted Xu Que directly.
“Who are you?” the old woman asked seriously.
At this time, golden light gushed out from between Xu Que’s eyebrows. The little golden figure disappeared and then reappeared behind the old woman. Then, it smashed a long black rod at the back of the old woman’s head.
Along with a dull sound, the old woman rolled her eyes and lay down in the rocking chair directly, which squeaked a bit.
At the same time, Jiang Hongyan and Buttface also sneaked into the main hall. They let out a sigh of relief after seeing that.
If Xu Que had been a little bit slower, the white-haired old woman might have startled others, which would cause more troubles for them to search for the Heavenly Human Plates.
“Heh-heh, don’t worry, everything is under control!” Xu Que laughed as he put away the black rod.
It seemed the Heavenly Human Pavilion was a combination of a place for secluded cultivation and a library. Many Heavenly Human cultivators were performing secluded cultivation in this building. Meanwhile, they could also act as the guards for this building. Anyone who startled them would have great troubles.
Therefore, Xu Que stopped Jiang Hongyan from killing the old woman. Instead, he chose to knock her unconscious, so that she could continue her sound sleep. In this way, other Heavenly Human cultivators wouldn’t be startled.
Flop! Flop! Flop!
At this time, soft footsteps came in from the stairway.
“Oh, no, someone is coming down, crap!” Buttface said nervously in a low voice.
Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan dashed toward the head of the stairway at the same time, so that they could subdue the newcomer before they were spotted.
However, when they arrived at the head of the stairway, a young female Heavenly Human cultivator stepped out. The next moment, they had eye contact. All of a sudden, everyone in this area fell into a stalemate.
The young woman of the Heavenly Human Tribe was surprised. Then, when she found Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan had no wings on their backs, she changed her expression and was about to shout.
Xu Que said coquettishly with a calm smile, “Young lady, have you seen Brother Tian Cheng? He brought us into this place just now and asked us to wait for him. But he hasn’t come back yet!”
“Did Tian Cheng bring you here?” The young woman was stunned. She relaxed her vigilance a bit when she heard the name of her fellow countryman. After all, she knew many human cultivators were acting as slaves and servants in their tribe.
“Right! He left me something and told me to show it if we were suspected as trespassers by any Heavenly Human cultivators!” Xu Que said as he nodded shyly.
The beautiful face of Mai Shiranui was really deceptive!
The young woman of the Heavenly Human Tribe almost believed his words. Then, she said, nodding her head, “What is it? Let me see!”
“OK, come here. I will take it out and show it to you. It is a big treasure!” Xu Que said shyly.
