“He,he, kill me? Are you kidding?”
As if he had just heard the joke of the century, Dong Qiu burst out laughing. At the same time, he raised his arms and prepared for another blow.
Xu Que squinted and swiftly dodged aside, exposing his killing intent.
“Wait!” Suddenly, a clear voice came from atop the tower.
Fwoosh! Fwoosh! Fwoosh!
Accompanied by rushing sounds, three shadows leaped from the tower—two men and one woman.
Both men were middle-aged, similar to the Dongs’ Third Head. They also looked alike, sharing a dignified and lofty appearance. Their aura level was on par with the sixth or seventh level of the Great Vehicle Stage. Judging by these signs, they must be the First and Second Heads of the Dong family.
The woman was of rare beauty. She had dewy skin and exuded an otherworldly grace—with more maturity and charm than Miss Dong.
“Am I speaking to Wang Dachui of the Exploding Heavens Faction?” Looking at Xu Que, the lady asked in a warm and playful tone.
“Ha,ha! You are one observant gal for recognizing my handsome face straight away! All right, since you all came down, then I won’t give myself the trouble of climbing up. I still have important things to take care of, so I’ll be taking my leave!” Xu Que waved his hand and turned to leave.
This time, he left in a hurry, a real hurry, as terror seized his heart. That woman’s aura was even more ferocious than that of the Dongs’ First Head. Among all the powerful beings that Xu Que had encountered, she would no doubt take first place. Evidently, her strength must have surpassed the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage and matched the Celestial Stage. She might very well be an old hag with the power of rejuvenation.
Faced with this much power, Xu Que thought that he couldn’t afford to offend her. Even though he possessed a weapon as deadly as the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes, which did kill cultivators at the Celestial Stage…
However, those cultivators had had to face gigantic swarms of Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes, sweeping over the Xuanzhen Continent.
Right now, Xu Que only had a few million mosquitoes on him, and he had no idea how many Celestial Stage cultivators there were in the First Realm City. If he messed up, he might end up losing all of his millions of mosquitoes. That would be a costly mistake! In any case, it was best to retreat!
“Oh? And what are these important things that you must take care of? Pray, tell us, Master Wang. I would like to know if they are more important than what we came to discuss with you!” The woman’s voice came from behind, her voice bearing a tinge of amusement.
Xu Que didn’t even turn around and replied, “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!”
Everyone on scene was taken aback, completely dumbfounded.
So eating chicken was that “important thing”?
“Ha, ha, if Master Wang wants to eat chicken, I can order someone to prepare it at any time. No need for Master Wang himself to run the errand.” The woman chuckled. In a flash, she was suddenly standing before Xu Que.
Xu Que understood that he wouldn’t be able to get rid of her so quickly, so he simply shook his head. “Say it, what did you come to discuss? Just so you are aware, I only sell my body, not my skills!”
Upon hearing these words, all the other people present’s eyes got wide.
Sell his body, not his skills?
Who the hell wanted your body?!
The lady’s smile dissipated as she spoke solemnly, “Master Wang, you misunderstood…”
In a calm and peaceful tone, Xu Que answered, “I’m sorry, that was a slip of the tongue. What I meant is I only sell my skills, not my body.”
The woman regained her smile and nodded. “Ha, that’s perfect. What we need is precisely your skills!”
“Oh! So you had your sights set on my skills. You should have said so sooner. I thought that you coveted my handsome face, and my heart skipped a beat!” Xu Que breathed a sigh of relief and fondled her chest.
The woman’s face got dark in an instant. She jerked back, furious. “Insolent! Get your dirty hands off me!”
“Aha, sorry, sorry, I touched the wrong chest. I really didn’t do it on purpose!” Xu Que ignored the Dongs’ Third Head staring daggers at him and withdrew his hands with a smile on his face, then placed them on his own chest. He had to go the full distance, after all.
However, although the Third Head shot him a murderous look, there was panic in his eyes. He didn’t even open his mouth to chew Xu Que out and instead stood there in silence.
Xu Que was now sure of one thing: not only was that woman a powerhouse, but she also held a higher position than all three of the Dong family’s Heads.
“Hmph, I knew that you were up to no good. Should you repeat such shameless acts, I will cut off your hands and feet, then feed you to the dogs!” Enraged, the woman lashed out at Xu Que. She was infuriated by both Xu Que’s offense and her own carelessness. She did not expect that his character would be so brazen and his movements so rapid, to the point of sneaking up on her.
Not far from there, Buttface, who was dawdling about, perceived a faint sound from nearby. He halted his steps, pricked up his ears, and examined his surroundings.
After taking several deep breaths, he snarled, “Sh*t, I know I just heard someone talk about feeding their dog! Where are you? F*ck, are you trying to trick me, a wolf? Come out and fight me!” Having said this, Buttface headed toward the tower in a great hurry, ready to have a talk with whoever had spoken these words.
Meanwhile, Xu Que, still grinning, didn’t budge from where he was standing. Faced with the woman’s oppressive aura of death, he was not daunted in the slightest. Since he could no longer get away, what was the good of being scared?
If we come to blows, then I will go all out, even at the price of releasing the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes. Cost what it may, I will not back down from a fight!
Yet as Xu Que prepared for war, the lady abruptly suppressed her killing intent.
She stared coldly at him and declared in a low voice, “Wang Dachui, I will not beat around the bush any longer. To get straight to the point, I want you to represent the Dong family and head to the Refined Moon Palace to acquire a box. Once the deed is done, you will have the honor of becoming our son-in-law!”
“Refined Moon Palace? Acquire a box?” Xu Que was confused.
This was the third time he had heard of the Refined Moon Palace. Moreover, the Blood Coffin concealed on him was enough to forge five Refined Moon Keys! Nevertheless, he couldn’t have expected that someone at the Celestial Stage would need him to infiltrate the Refined Moon Palace and bring something for her.
The woman nodded and continued, “Refined Moon Palace, that is correct! You certainly are not from First Realm City. For you to show up at this time and place must mean that you came for the Refined Moon Palace. Therefore—”
Xu Que immediately interrupted her. “Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold it! Who told you that I came for the Refined Moon Palace? I’m telling you, I don’t care one bit about that palace thing.”
The woman was taken by surprise. Even the three Heads of the Dong family were startled.
“You’re not here for the Refined Moon Palace? Then why did you risk your life to travel to First Realm City?” Dong Yue, the Third Head, asked with a frown.
“He, he, you f*cking think that I wanted to come? Whatever, you won’t understand anyway. You just want me to get you the goods, right? OK, no problem. But you must satisfy my two terrifying conditions!” Xu Que said as he stuck two fingers up.
Once again, everyone was dumbfounded and furrowed their brows.
The woman pondered for a moment, then nodded. “Tell us what they are first!”
Xu Que fixated on her and smirked like a villain. “My first condition—the most important one—is for you to praise how attractive I am!”
“Huh?” Everyone else froze on the spot.
Praise how attractive you are?
Did you make all that fuss just to ask this?
This is what you call a “terrifying condition”?
“Hmph! Are you ridiculing us, Wang Dachui? Your good looks are an established fact. Why do you still need us to sing your praises?” shouted the Second Head.
Xu Que immediately turned his gaze on him and gave him a thumbs-up. “Holy sh*t, LMAO. Excellent job, Second Head! That was quality praise. Moist, smooth, springy, and very elegant. Shame that it lacked a bit of sincerity and didn’t feel very original to me!”
“What sincerity? I was telling the truth!” The Second Head glowered at him.
Xu Que shook his head. “Nah, your truth was honest, but not sincere. You still have a long way to go, but I hope to see a brand-new you on the international stage, so I’m gonna give you a YES!”
“I have no idea what you mean, but it sounded nice!” The Second Head nodded honestly.
The woman watched Xu Que without any expression and spoke, “The first condition is simple, you’re very handsome! Now, can you reveal your second condition?”
“Very well, my second condition is an easy one.” Xu Que curled his lips until it formed a crooked grin and looked at the lady with cheerful eyes. “My second condition is…for you to blo- ha!”
“Blo- ha, first, answers later. Smooch! He, he!”
