Howl! The snakes immediately erupted into furious howls, sticking their forked tongues out as they charged at Xu Que.
“Eh, what?” Xu Que was shocked. “That can’t be right! Do you have heads but not a tail? Let me count, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5! Crap, eight snake heads?”
“Foolish human, I’m a Nine-Headed Snake!” The heads bellowed in unison.
Xu Que’s eyes got wide. After all that trouble, there’s a monster like this hidden here? Its cultivation stage was not too low either, around the fourth or fifth level of the Great Vehicle Stage.
“Nine-headed Snake, where’s your ninth head?” Xu Que sneered and waved his hand. A black flame suddenly burst from his palm.
A ravaging, fiery aura instantly consumed the arena.
The eight heads halted suddenly and looked warily at Xu Que, “You…what’s with that flame?”
:Why the hell would you care about my flame? I’m the one asking questions here. Are you deaf or blind?” Xu Que roared and raised his hand, pretending that he was about to hurl the flame.
Shocked, the eight snake heads quickly answered, “Revered Immortal, I…my ninth head was severed when they sealed me back then!”
“How long ago was back then, and who did you say severed your head?” Xu Que glared.
“This…was about 8,000 or 9,000 years ago. I was asleep for too long and cannot recall how many years have passed. However, the one who sealed me and cut off my head was the master of this area!” The snake heads replied with respect.
Intelligent and quick-witted, it knew that the flames in Xu Que’s hands were not something to be trifled with. It was so wary of the fire that it lost all desire to go up against Xu Que.
“Hmph, then where did they go? I thought that I had met a beautiful snake lady, but it was, in fact, a snake man! How could you be so disgusting as to transform into a woman? Can’t you transform into anything else?” Xu Que got angrier as he scolded.
The eight snake heads cringed a little and answered with a trembling voice, “O, Revered Immortal, I…I’ve never transformed into a woman to deceive you! The one you saw just now was the Master of this area!”
“Eh?” Xu Que’s expression was now aghast when he heard that. He stepped onto lightning and bolted forward.
The next moment, the position where he had been standing earlier was blown up.
Shortly after, a white-clad woman appeared. Long, black hair flowed down her back as she looked at Xu Que. She chuckled softly. “That’s weird. So many years have passed, and this realm could produce a young man of such cultivation caliber?”
“Hmph, how dare a demoness like you sneak an attack from behind? Aren’t you embarrassed?” Xu Que scoffed, his sword pointing at the white-clad woman.
The white-clad lady sneered, “How dare you call me a demoness?”
“So what if I call you a demoness? Did you truly see me as a pushover?” Xu Que raised his wrists and balled his hand into a fist. He punched out with great force!
The fist instantly distorted and hollowed the void. A huge, golden fist came into shape out of thin air. With crushing energy, it slammed down toward the white-clad lady! It was a King of Tough-Acting Fist worth 50,000 points; he used a sure-kill move from the get-go. It was evident that Xu Que had no intention of wasting his breath with the woman. Even if he could not kill her, he would need to injure her gravely.
“Hmm?” The white-clad woman flinched the moment she saw the golden fist. With a light tap of her toe, she floated off the surface. However, no matter how fast her moves were, she was unable to escape the coverage of the fist. The moment right after she swept up, the shadow of the fist caught her up and tore her apart with its overwhelming force. The woman disintegrated into a puff of white smoke and disappeared.
“Not dead yet?” Xu Que frowned.
He knew that because the System had not issued a reward notification. Therefore, he was very sure that he had not killed that lady with his Tough-Acting Fist. The woman’s skills were too eerie and phantomlike. She could dissolve into a puff of white smoke every time and disappear without a sound nor trace, more powerful than using an Escape Emblem.
“Young man, which sect or faction do you hail from?” The woman’s voice rang suddenly.
Xu Que turned around, only to see the lady appearing by the lake. Not only was she unscathed, but she also looked at Xu Que with a tender gaze.
“Ha, ha, I hail from the Exploding Heavens Faction!” Xu Que laughed pridefully, his fist pumping, ready for a few more strikes of the King of Tough-Acting Fist.
The white-clad woman sensed his plan. She smiled slightly, “Young man, stop attacking me. You have passed the trial. I will allow you to step into this area!”
“Ha, ha, why should I stop attacking just because you said so? Who do you think you are?” Xu Que smiled coldly as he stepped onto a lightning bolt and darted forward at high speed. Since she’s so good at dodging, it’s time to try some close-range combat!
The white-clad woman was unaffected. She shook her head, “I am but a Shadow Replica. You can’t kill me!”
Xu Que’s fist landed the moment she finished her words. However, the moment it landed, the white-clad woman dissolved into a cloud of white smoke and drifted into the distance. She dodged the blow once again with ease.
“A Shadow Replica?” Xu Que frowned. If even a Shadow Replica was this strong, how powerful would the real deal be?
“Who in the world are you?” Xu Que asked in a low voice.
The white-clad woman smiled. “I am the master of this area, the Master of Kunlun!”
“The Master of Kunlun? You’re the Queen Mother of the West?” Xu Que asked, confused.
The white-clad woman remained smiling as she shook her head, “The Queen Mother of the West was but a myth. Many years ago, I created this area and opened the door leading to the Road of Heavenly Attainment. Therefore, I am the master of this area. Anyone who reaches here would require my permission to enter. Those who defy this rule would be executed without mercy!”
“The Road of Heavenly Attainment?” asked Xu Que, slightly taken aback. How was it different from the Road of Heavenly Ascension?
“Young man. This place was sealed off for millions of years, but you are one who made it in and passed my trial. You are now qualified to enter the Road of Heavenly Attainment.” The white-clad woman smiled.
Xu Que, however, darkened.”So I passed the trial. What about my friends? Where have you taken them?”
The white-clad woman shook her head slightly. “Rest assured. So long as one of you passes the trial, I’ll let all of you enter! However, before that, I have some questions for you.”
When Xu Que heard that, he agreed at once, “All right! Since you’re this beautiful, ask away!”
“Thank you!” The white-clad woman looked tenderly at Xu Que and smiled. She shifted her gaze toward the spell entrance and sighed, “While I am the master of this area, I am, after all, a mere Shadow Replica, seal-bound to guard the door. I am unable to leave for eternity. I want to ask if….”
Plop! A low thud could be head before she managed to finish. The white-clad lady stiffened, her eyes filled with astonishment and shock. She slowly closed her eyes and collapsed limply.
It was only then that a small golden man appeared behind her. The man with a long black rod in his hands was none other than the Little Gold Clone hidden within Xu Que’s brows.
“Hmph, how naive! Did you genuinely believe that I wouldn’t dare to hit you just because you’re somewhat pretty? Trying to make a sneak attack on me? You’re too inexperienced!” Xu Que sneered as he retook his Little Golden Clone. He then strolled toward the white-clad lady.
The eight-headed snake was beyond stunned. It could not believe its eyes and could feel nothing but horror in its heart. He…he could play it that way?
“What Master of Kunlun, what trial? Why don’t you try me, huh? I’ll strip you naked and throw you outside, freezing you to death!” Xu Que scoffed menacingly as he approached the white-clad woman.
The eight-headed snake lit up at once when he heard Xu Que. Its eight heads nodded all at once as he chirped excitedly, “That’s awesome! Awesome!”
