Chapter 889: Don’t Run, You Bunch of Cowards!

Within seconds, a devastating gush of pressure flowed out of Xu Que.
He steeled his gaze and pressed each of his hands on the two elders at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage.
The two elders deflated like a balloon out of air.
Ding! “The target has 700 years of life span remaining. You have successfully gained 700 years of life span!”
Ding! “The target has 301 years of life span remaining. You have successfully gained 300 years of life span!”
One of the elders fell toward the ground, devoid of all signs of life, reduced to skin and bones.
The other elder was no better. Left with only one year of life span, he sat frozen on the ground, trembling all over as his face filled with horror.
Xu Que had already stretched his hands toward two other elders.
With his current strength, he could only make the Ancient Life and Death Wheel absorb 1,000 years worth of life span at every use. When it had absorbed 700 and 300 years of life span respectively just now, that elder who had an extra year of life span managed to survive.
However, Xu Que was too lazy to waste time on returning to absorb that year left over. He directly turned to find his next targets.
A horrifying force gushed out of the Ancient Life and Death Wheel and began to suck their life energy at a mad speed.
Ding! “The target has 800 years of life span remaining. You have successfully gained 800 years of life span!”
Ding! “The target has 103 years of life span remaining. You have successfully gained 103 years of life span!”
As the System notifications rang out, two other powerhouses at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage collapsed and died immediately.
These Ancestors of the Heavenly Humans were all from different generations. Some had lived for tens of thousands of years and were still alive and kicking, while others had lived for several thousand years. They did not have much life span left, and so they hid away in the Holy Grounds, waiting for an opportunity to flee.
However, Xu Que had sucked their life spans dry one by one. It was so much more convenient than killing them with Magic Arts, and his life span would be significantly prolonged at the same time!
“This is bad! Retreat, quick!”
“This fellow can suck our life force!”
The rest of the Heavenly Human elders reacted at once and finally realized that something was wrong. They scattered in all directions, their faces horror filled.
Xu Que’s means and abilities had surpassed their wildest imaginations. No matter what magic art they threw at him, he could emerge unscathed. He was more terrifying than a cultivator who cultivated his body into the stage of a Saint!
Most important, not only could they not harm him, but Xu Que could also absorb the life force and life span of his opponents.
How could they even continue?
Many of the Heavenly Human elders were frightened beyond reason. When they looked at Xu Que, all scorn and belittlement had vanished; they now saw him as a life-hunting ghost and just wished to be as far away from him as possible.
As for Jiang Hongyan and Buttface, both of them were stunned. They never thought that Xu Que could still have a such a trick up his sleeves.
By trying dozens of times with the escape emblem, he finally landed amid his enemies; he activated the golden shield once he had landed, nullifying all sorts of attack that landed on his body and drained the life spans of the powerhouses at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage in a matter of seconds.
They had never heard of such outrageous prowess and tactics!
“Eh, don’t run! Come on! Beat me up!” Xu Que laughed wickedly as he stepped onto his lightning bolt. He caught up with the Heavenly Human elders nearest to him.
Those that he was pursuing lost all color in their faces when they saw him. They immediately turned and cast a powerful spell. An enormous blue flame formed in midair and began to gush toward Xu Que like a sea wave.
As Xu Que’s Ultra Invincible Emblem still had roughly two seconds left, instead of retreating, he charged toward the blue flame at a higher speed.
Almost instantaneously, that terrifying sea of blue fire broke away as it hit Xu Que’s shielded body. It exploded, and then it was quickly gone. However, Xu Que was still uninjured. He dashed toward the elders.
“Is that fellow invincible? His body is even scarier than that of a body of a cultivator who has reached the stage of Saint!” Several elders exclaimed in disbelief, then started to retreat like madmen.
As for Xu Que, he continued to intimidate them even though the duration of the Ultra Invincible Emblem was up. He acted as though he was still invincible and chased them down.
“Come on, don’t run!”
“You bunch of cowards! Why are you running away!”
“Hello, look at me. Why are you afraid?”
“It’s my fault, for failing to make myself weaker!”
Xu Que hunted them down across the whole area and shouted rubbish. In the end, he even began to hum a song!
The Heavenly Human elders were both furious and frightened. Their faces went pale green, but they could only run away in all directions.
“Heh, heh, trying to run? It’s no use! This area has been sealed off. Where can you guys run too?” Xu Que laughed defiantly and returned their words back to the Heavenly Humans.
At the same time, he used the Killer God’s Single Stroke to continue his hunt. However, this move could only be slightly effective against those who had just entered the stage of Great Vehicle. To people at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage, it was almost ineffective.
Every time Xu Que appeared behind them, they would always react right away and immediately escape to somewhere else. However, that did not douse Xu Que’s interest. Whenever he appeared behind someone else, the other party would first be so scared that his face would turn green, then immediately make their escape.
“Lowlife, who in the world are you?” yelled an elder who finally could not take it any longer.
They could not understand how a young man at the Form Synthesis Stage could possess such powers. To think that he would have such powerful means! He’s almost unrivaled.
“Great question! I’m the Hades of the Exploding Heavens Faction. I control the Book of Death and Life and could amend your life span as I wish. Quickly pay up if you want to live!” Xu Que laughed as he continued chasing them.
“Impossible!” The Heavenly Human elders responded at once.
They were all well aware that Xu Que could only steal their life force when he touched them. He did not amend their life spans using some Book of Death and Life!
“He, he, it’s up to you whether you believe me or not! Nevertheless, none of you shall escape today!” Xu Que sneered. He quickly caught up with some of the elders.
He moved a step onward and immediately propelled himself forward, pushing both of his palms outwards.
A massive tornado of energy engulfed them all. It towered over two elders at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage. He then began to suck their life spans at a tremendous speed.
The two Heavenly Human elders were scared out of their wits and began to scream hysterically in fear.
Alas, that would not stop Xu Que. Within seconds, the two elders had their life spans drained from their bodies. A total of over 800 years of life span poured into Xu Que’s Ancient Life and Death Wheel.
“Scoundrel! Let go of my grandfather and my father!” yelled an elder nearby, his face filled with fury. A fiery blue snake exploded from his magic art!
Xu Que’s brows twitched, and he quickly avoided that attack and threw the two dead old geezers at the fiery blue snake.
The two bodies were reduced to ashes the moment they made contact with the blue flame.
“You….” The elder was both terrified and furious. He could almost shoot lasers from his eyes with all the hatred he had for Xu Que, but he was still too afraid to step forward.
However, those elders who had hidden far away had witnessed Xu Que’s evasion. They immediately became suspicious.
“Wasn’t he invincible? Why did he evade that attack?”
“No, we’ve been had!”
“That fellow is not invincible!”
“Quick! We must take this chance to kill him!”
Realization finally dawned on the elders, and they swarmed toward Xu Que. It was a great opportunity, they thought, to eradicate Xu Que for good.
“He, he, you’re only realizing this now? Aren’t you guys a little too silly? But…do you really think that I have no other means to deal with you? Come, come, take a look at all my little cuties!”
Xu Que laughed. He even kept away the last Ultra Invincible Emblem and swept to the back and landed beside Jiang Hongyan and Buttface. Then, with a stroke of his arm, he took out dozens of Beast Soul Bags and threw all of them into the air!
