Ultimate Scheming System Chapter 56
The entire area turned silent.
The disciples who managed to survive the first cannon blast were completely blank as to what had just happened.
Even the Sect Leader Gu Gang was completely caught off guard by the power of the cannon blast.
God Powered Cannon took less than a second to activate and could create such a devastating blow. This was something that surpassed all understandings of the cultivator present.
After the God Powered Cannon had erupted and shot out a round, Gu Gang didn’t have any time to respond at all. He was instantly blinded by the piercing white light which forced him to shut his eyes. In the next instant, he felt an immense surge of destructive powers approach him and brushed past him. It was almost as if he brushed against the shoulders of death.
When he opened his eyes, he realized that everything was empty. More than half of his disciples had vanished. Even three of his own Original Infant Stage juniors had disappeared. Then, he felt a sharp pain on his right shoulder.
But even before he could look down at his injuries, he looked up at Xu Que whose face was extremely apologetic as he said… That he missed slightly!
He missed? And only destroyed one of his arms? And that it didn’t matter for another round would do it?
In that instant, Gu Gang was dazed.
He looked down at his injuries on the right side of his body. In that instant, what he saw was so shocking that his pupils dilated.
"Ah!!!" Gu Gang let out a shriek of agony.
The anger of losing his right arm coupled with the delayed pain caused him to lose his sense as he nearly went mad.
The most important thing was what Xu Que had said: "I missed. Another round should do it." It almost made him vomit blood.
The rest of the Wind Chasing Sect disciples regained their senses. Seeing everything before them, they froze in bewilderment.
"How… How could this be?"
"Second dog… where’s second dog? He was just here beside me. Why isn’t he here anymore?"
"What on earth is happening? Why are we the only ones left?"
"Sect Leader, you’re hurt. Your hand..."
In that next moment, a dozen disciples were at a lost and all started to panic.
Nobody expected that just a mere cannon blast which required a low grade spirit stone could actually cause so much devastation. Nobody could’ve defended or blocked such a powerful blow.
Of course, it doesn’t mean that being unable to block the hit meant being unable to dodge it!
After the first blast of the cannon, Xu Que realized that this God Powered Cannon was very potent. However, it had a very huge flaw as well.
The merit to this God Powered Cannon was that the power of the blast could be controlled and managed. Besides, this was something that only Xu Que could do. All he needed to do was to think of the amount of power he wanted to use.
He was afraid of using too much power just now and was afraid that Great Change Sect might be blown to smithereens if he didn’t control the power. Hence, he reduced it by more than half!
However, once the strength was reduced, the flaw of the cannon became visible. The accuracy was reduced as well.
The God Powered Cannon didn’t have the automatic targeting ability and required the person who was operating it to aim. If the target was a moving target, the effectiveness of the God Powered Cannon would be significantly reduced for it would be difficult to aim at a moving target. Everything relied on the precision of the person operating it.
However, the Wind Chasing Sect disciples were all standing at one spot and didn’t move. The only reason Xu Que missed the first shot was because he missed intentionally.
This was done in order to play with Gu Gang. He wanted to completely take down the entire Wind Chasing Sect, being able to come but not having a chance of returning home. Hence, he chose to kill the three Original Infant Stage cultivators first. This included the many Core Bearing Stage and Golden Core stage cultivators standing behind.
An entire mound of experience points was collected instantly by him. The three Original Infant Stage cultivators brought around 600,000 experience points along with the rest of the Core Bearing and Golden Core Stage cultivators. His current experience points were 760,000/1,200,000.
760,000 experience points. He was only 440,000 experience points away from being level 10, the full foundation.
Where should the composition of the remaining 440,000 experience points will come from? That was easy. Two more Original Infant Stage and one more Golden Core Stage cultivator would do it!
Xu Que’s vision started to burn as he glared at Gu Gang and the other Original Infant Stage cultivator.
He slapped the God Powered Cannon once again as the golden inscriptions started to flare up in a mystical glow once more.
However this time, Gu Gang and the rest of them reacted. They faced the God Powered Cannon with strange and fearful expressions. Soon after, they shouted at each other to flee. Immediately, they summoned their flying swords in an attempt to escape.
Xu Que hurriedly aimed and fired. His primary target was… Gu Gang’s remaining right arm!
With a loud roar, the bright golden light shot out from within the cannon and brushed past the right side of Gu Gang’s body. At the same time, it managed to claim the lives of several Wind Chasing Sect disciples. It even successfully destroyed Gu Gang’s right arm!
"Iyo, I missed again!" Xu Que shouted out once again.
However, this time, he didn’t look apologetic or regretful in anyway. That gave him away.
The few disciples of Great Change Sect witnessed the scene and heaved a sigh of relief. Damn it! It looks like this guy purposely missed.
The person who suffered and lost the most was Gu Gang. The Sect Leader of Wind Chasing Sect was one of the most respected and illustrious men within Wind City. He never would’ve imagined that he would meet such an end today and was killed by a mere Golden Core Stage cultivator. Both his arms were shot off as he was thrown into confusion.
Gu Gang’s face was filled with intense hatred and fury as he shouted out loudly, "Great Change Sect, just you wait. My Wind Chasing Sect will regroup and launch a come back. We shall fight ‘till the death until we get our revenge. Just you wait!"
As he spoke, he leapt atop his flying sword and started to fly down from the mountains.
Still, Xu Que’s monotonous voice which sounded like the god of death rang out in his ears once more as if he was claiming his life effortlessly.
"Please don’t think about regrouping to launch a come back. Are you ready for the next round? Ready… Go!"
Following Xu Que’s words, the God Powered Cannon fired for the third time.
A large golden ray of light shot towards Gu Gang with incredible speed invisible to the naked eye. It hit him from the pack and passed through his body. Like a single arrow piercing through two birds, the ray of golden light killed the last remaining Original Infant Stage cultivator as well.
At last, the few cultivators who managed to escape and were several hundred meters away were shot down from the air and died instantly as well.
The uneventful and boring battle ended this way.
An entire series of beeps were being emitted out from the system within Xu Que’s mind.
