“Young man, while we might be at the losing end right now, you should know better than to push it!”
The most senior Heavenly Human elder said in a deep voice, “We followed every condition that you put out. What else do you want?”
“Don’t be angry, Mister. Just look at you guys, still so quick to anger despite your age. No wonder your life span is so short! It’s just a little favor. There’s no need to be this uptight!” Xu Que persuaded earnestly.
The anger on the elders’ faces subsided slightly at Xu Que’s words.
“All right. Since it’s just a small favor, then go on. As long as it’s not too much, I can agree to it. If it’s nothing!” said the most senior Heavenly Human, who nodded as he looked at Xu Que.
“Yo, it’s easy then! Honestly speaking, it’s not quite a ‘small’ favor. It is more a ‘medium’ favor!” Xu Que waved his hands and said smilingly, “This is my last request. I want all of you to open your Mind Sense so that I may show you something. Don’t worry. I promise to only rub on the outside. I won’t put it in!”
At that very instant, every Heavenly Human elder present was stunned, their faces confused.
Open up their Mind Sense?
To put something?
Wouldn’t that mean that he was going to plant a Holy Soul Spell, controlling their life and death?
That’s a medium favor?
That’s a super-huge favor!
To hell with just rubbing on the outside and won’t put it in! Who does he take us for?
The elders trembled in anger. Boiling blood almost shot up their throats and out of their mouths!
There is a limit to a man’s tolerance! Xu Que had crossed the line!
All of the Heavenly Human elders glared at Xu Que, as intense killing intent exploded out of their bodies in an outburst of anger.
“This….” Even Jiang Hongyan was stunned by this development. She then shook her head, unable to decide if she should laugh or cry. She never expected Xu Que to put out such a condition. He won’t kill them; instead, he wanted to plant a Holy Soul Spell in their Mind Sense! That’s more ruthless than killing them, as it signified that he’d already taken the other party as servants and slaves!
“Ohh, I expected nothing less from my Brother Que, the thug! So ruthless and scheming!” Buttface gloated in their misery. Getting involved in this sort of messy situation was one of his favorite pastimes. The dirtier the case, the more he enjoyed it.
A fearsome gush of killing intent immediately filled the entire area.
Several Heavenly Human elders leading the pack showed their faces as black as charcoal. They sneered, “Young man, you have crossed the line. Are you truly bent on forcing our hands, fighting us to the death?”
“Fighting to the death?” Xu Que laughed almost instantly. He shook his head and scoffed, “I’m afraid that you’re not qualified!”
“Atrocious!” The Heavenly Human elder who was the most senior of them all bellowed. He glared at Xu Que, his face filled with fury, “Young man. We, the Heavenly Human Tribe, have lived here for an immeasurable amount of time. Did you genuinely believe that that was all the foundation that we had? I advise you not to overdo it and be content with what you’ve already gained. Otherwise, we the Heavenly Human Tribe will unleash the true depths of our foundation, no matter the price! Only death shall await!”
“Yo-ho, seems like you still dare to threaten me?” Xu Que was amused. Xu Que had, of course, guessed that what he had seen of the foundations of the Heavenly Human Tribe was just the tip of the iceberg.
However, so what? He, the Act-Tough Saint, had reigned supreme in the world of Acting Tough for years. He felt not a single drop of fear when facing the most potent cultivator at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage, the Emperor of the Tong Tian Nation. The Heavenly Human Tribe? Why would he be afraid? Even if they produced a powerhouse at the Celestial Stage, this Act-Tough Saint would play him to his death!
“Hmph! Young man, you must know that just as the heavens are limitless, there will always be someone better than you. Some things are better left unsaid. I hope that you will not dig your own grave!” said the most senior Heavenly Human elder coldly, as he tried to throw his weight about just because he was the oldest.
“Young man, allow us to offer some advice. Humans should know their place as humans and not be too complacent!”
“The Heavenly Human Tribe had shown you enough respect by treating you this way!”
The other elders pulled long faces as they chimed in icily. Up until this moment, they still looked down on Xu Que, despite having some reservations about his abilities. The concept of race hierarchy was so ingrained in their minds that it could not be erased this quickly with a display of strength. They firmly believed that the Heavenly Human race was the greatest race of all, almighty and unrivaled. Other races, like the humans, were all of an inferior breed!
Therefore, Xu Que had only one way to deal with tribes with this degree of mistaken ideas – kill!
“At first, I was too lazy to kill you guys. After all, it’d be a waste of time trying to round up all the newborn Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes when the deed was done. However, now…since you’re this insistent on dying, I’ll grant your wish!” Xu Que loosened his grip once he had said his piece.
The countless intertwining strands of True Core energy between his ten fingers shattered in an instant. Millions of Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes regained their freedom on the spot. Uncountable pairs of wings buzzed as they whirred, deafeningly loud, and sent chills up everyone’s spines.
The next moment, all of the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes converged into a humongous black wave and spilled out of the bags, swarming uncontrollably toward the elders of the Heavenly Human Tribe. The black wave of Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes consumed many of the Heavenly Human elders before they could even react.
“You’re finished! Our tribe will fight you to the death!”
“Once the first three generations of our progenitors awaken, they will make you humans shed a river’s worth of blood!”
Wave after wave of shrill wails and agonizing screams could be heard.
Every single Heavenly Human elder fought back with their lives, but there was only so long they could hang on in the face of such a massive amount of Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes. The black wave eventually engulfed them all, and their bodies became nutrients for the mosquitoes. Piles after piles of young Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes were born!
“It’s a sin to kill one person, an atrocity to kill 10,000, and a heroic act to kill 1 million! Countless people have died by my hands. You old geezers are nothing!”
Xu Que laughed coldly.
It was a very tragic outcome, one that he had wished to avoid from the start. After all, things like the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes will cause great catastrophe and disasters even if only a couple get out by accident. Therefore, he would rather take the risk and infiltrate the Heavenly Human Pavilion. Thoughts of using the Heaven- Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes to deal with the Heavenly Humans had never crossed his mind.
No matter how much he scoffed at the rules, there was one that he adhered to: One should only fight back when one is taunted! No matter how many evil deeds he did, he had his moral baseline.
However, the situation was different now. The void in this area was sealed away, and so Xu Que did not have to worry about the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes getting out. It was as he had previously said: he was trying to avoid trouble.
Such as now. Now that every Heavenly Human at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage was dead, all that was left was the massive swarm of Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes scooting all around in the sealed area. Xu Que had to waste more time and effort capturing them all back into the Beast Soul Bags.
Not far away, Jiang Hongyan stood with a calm and unreadable expression. However, deep down, she was utterly awed by Xu Que’s decision.
It’s a sin to kill one person, an atrocity to kill 10,000, and a heroic act to kill 1 million!
Good, little one. This sort of composure and decisiveness that Xu Que had was indeed worthy of his prowess!
In this world, be it in the past or present, there was no other man that could ever be on a par with him.
In the end, Xu Que opened up all of the Beast Soul Bags and captured all of the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes.
He scanned the area carefully one last time. After making sure that he had gotten them all, he put away the Beast Soul Bags. By then, his cultivation stage had already shot up from the fifth level of Form Synthesis to the eighth level of Form Synthesis. His aura and pressure suddenly heightened, and his Taoist Connotation was more profound and more massive than before. However, the experience from the dozens of powerhouses at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage was only enough for him to advance three small levels.
Seems like the farther I go, the more I have to rely on my cultivation. Otherwise, I’m afraid that there won’t be that many Great Vehicle Stage powerhouses to kill any longer! Xu Que shook his head and whispered to himself.
“Little one!” Jiang Hongyan’s gentle voice sounded.
Xu Que turned around. She looked at him, her beautiful eyes filled with warmth and gentleness. Jiang Hongyan said, “I think I found this area’s formation!”
“What?” Xu Que was caught by surprise. Then, as if something had hit him, he asked incredulously, “You mean, you found the location where we could use the Space- Breaking Spell?”
“That’s right!” Jiang Hongyan nodded, her gaze falling on the area where the elders had died a few moments ago.
Shocked, Xu Que immediately turned around.
At the same time, Buttface also called out in surprise, “Crap, don’t tell me that this is the legendary Void Interface Point, the crucial entrance to the Spiritual Realm?”
“No!” Xu Que shook his head. An irrepressible excitement filled his face as he answered in a trembling voice, “This…is my way back home!”
