All of the Heavenly Human elders’ expressions blackened visibly at Xu Que’s words.
However, one of the elders suddenly laughed. Sneering, he said, “Lowlife, don’t tell me that you intend to compare your life span with ours? In fact, it will only take us a second to kill you! Don’t assume that you can escape endlessly with those amulets of yours. Apart from the fact that you will run out of them sooner or later, you could never escape this place as long as we’ve got you in here!”
Another elder chirped in, his eyes glinting in cruel amusement, “Ah, let me remind you that we have sealed off the void in this area before we came over. Therefore, the only areas that you can use with that emblem of yours to dart around are within a very small radius. Where do you think you can escape?”
“Oh? You’ve sealed it off?” Xu Que’s eyes brightened at the news. He asked excitedly, “You mean for real?”
His attitude caught many elders off guard.
Some Heavenly Human elders’ faces got even darker, and they scoffed, “True or false? You’ll know when you try it! We have cultivated here for many years and are in control of the laws of the void of this area. While your amulets are interesting, they merely work by borrowing the power of the void!”
“I see! I am relieved to hear that!” Xu Que nodded quickly and smiled, taking out two different amulets: an Escape Emblem in his left hand and an Ultra Invincible Emblem in his right!
Suddenly, he activated the Escape Emblem, and his figure flickered. He appeared somewhere two miles away. With a loud bang, he was blocked by an invisible force.
Those elders were not joking. They had indeed sealed off the area.
It was suddenly all too apparent that they could no longer escape using the regular Escape Emblem. Their only way out was to use the High-Class Escape Emblems!
However, Xu Que had no intention of running away.
Those elders were so overbearing. How could he be worthy of the title Act-Tough Saint if he didn’t succeed in making them cry blood tears?
If word of him running away ever got out, how could he still raise his head with pride?
“Continue!” Xu Que huffed as he took out another Escape Emblem, and his figure disappeared once again.
The next moment, Xu Que crashed heavily into the invisible wall again, and he tumbled toward the ground.
The Heavenly Human elders all laughed coldly.
“Ha, ha, we have told you! You can’t escape. No matter how many amulets you use, you could never escape this space!”
“Stop struggling. Crawl over here like a good boy and kneel before us!”
“You lowly humans are only fit to be the slaves of us, Heavenly Humans, forever and ever!”
The elders laughed as they glared viciously at Xu Que. They were no longer in a hurry to kill Xu Que. Instead, they were treating him as a fish trapped in a pot – like prey that they were about to devour. They played with him slowly, watching him dart up and down in this jail.
Xu Que, on the other hand, ignored them. He continued to use his escape emblems and flickered from place to place.
He was knocked down again.
And once again he stood up and continued to use his escape emblems.
Xu Que tried again and again, but each time was only greeted with failure on his every attempt. Seemingly insane, he kept throwing himself at the invisible barrier from all directions.
“Crap, is that fellow crazy? Is his head made of steel? Don’t tell me that he’s trying to crack the barrier using his body?” Buttface asked in astonishment.
Jiang Hongyan frowned slightly. While she was unsure of Xu Que’s intentions, looking at Xu Que crashing into the barrier time and again was difficult. Her little hands in her sleeves balled into tighter fists. When she swept her gaze at those Heavenly Human elders, her eyes were filled with cold killing intent.
However, she managed to keep her emotions in check. She knew Xu Que well. He was definitely not trying to find an escape route right now! Even though he seemed to be wasting the escape emblems by charging aimlessly at the barrier, Jiang Hongyan knew fully well that he must be brewing some mischievous scheme.
Xu Que fished out another escape emblem and teleported again.
This time, he still appeared at the other side of the area and did not bang into the barrier of the void. However, he did not stop. He continued to use the escape emblems.
Many of the Heavenly Human elders had begun to laugh heartily, as arrogance and scorn filled their faces.
“Humans are truly an inferior race! Their intelligence is much lower than our kind!”
“Hmph, that’s for sure! We are the descendants of Gods. Mere humans are but a race of people who are not very evolved!”
“He underestimated the void barrier we laid!”
“Ha, ha, the ignorant shall always die a most painful death!”
“This fella might still believe that he can break open the void barrier through sheer brute force! Ha, ha!”
The Heavenly Human elders shook their heads as they looked on with mild interest in this as entertainment, and they commented on Xu Que as if he were a clown.
At the same time, Xu Que, a short distance away, had activated the escape emblem once again. A sudden tear of the void appeared amid the Heavenly Human elders. Right after, Xu Que’s figure finally landed right in their midst.
The Heavenly Human elders were at first stunned, then they broke into hysterical laughter.
“Ha, ha, ha!”
“Lowlife, after all that effort, you didn’t manage to get out, but instead landed in between us?”
“You don’t have to be this impatient about jumping into your own death!”
“It’s a pity, but it’s too late now for you to wish for death!”
“As we said just now, if you don’t hand over the amulets, what awaits you will be a life worse than death!”
“And now, it’s time to make you have a taste of what’s worse than death!”
The elders raised their arms and unleashed a vast amount of True Core Strength, aiming straight for Xu Que!
“Hey, who told you that I’m going to run?” Xu Que smirked and heaved a sigh of relief. He yelled as relief washed over him, “I have tried for so long just for this moment, to stand right here. It’s regretful, but I’m telling you now that you have forgotten!”
Tch! When he finished, he ignited the Ultra Invincible Emblem in his hands!
The next moment, a brilliant golden gleam enveloped him from head to toe.
Five seconds of invincibility starts now!
All of the magic arts of the elders at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage landed on Xu Que. They had all wanted to capture him alive and torture him all they could!
Bam! Bam! Bam!
To their horror, every single magic art that landed on Xu Que was shattered by the golden gleam. They dispersed into a ball of Spiritual Qi and disappeared into the air.
“What?” The crowd of Heavenly Human elders quickly paled and they stood petrified. They could not believe what had happened!
The magic arts were ineffective?
How could that be?
That fellow didn’t even bother to block them, but could ignore every single hit that landed on him. Not even cultivators who cultivated their bodies into the stage of Saint could do that!
“System!” As everyone else was stunned, Xu Que’s mind moved fast, and he summoned the System interface.
Then, with a cold smirk on his face, he yelled loudly: “System, take out my Italian Cannon…pooh, no, take out my Ancient Life and Death Wheel and suck their life spans dry! I’m gonna stand here and watch just how much life span they have left since they can’t stop bragging about it! Those who have got less than 1,000 years of life span left, just lie down and await your deaths!”
