Ultimate Scheming System Chapter 78
"Rumble!!!" A world-shaking, ear piercing sound abruptly exploded forth.
A formless, berserk Air Wave rushed forth from the Buster Sword, directly towards the Blazing Inferno Spell. In a split second, the entire sea of fire was split into half, revealing an unignited area down the middle.
The entire Spell boundary was being forcefully torn open!
In the middle of the two seas of fire, a deep canal ran through the ground. The canal of water extended all the way to the entrance of the Spell and was still increasing in ferocity.
"Grunt!" The faces of Zeng Fan Rong and the others were filled with astonishment. They gulped once and froze in shock, staring wide eyed at the water level which has crept up to their feets. Cracks started forming across the rocks and the group of them were still unable to regain their senses.
At the Core of the Spell...
The pair of female Sky Incense Valley disciples were also awe-stricken. They were stupefied and had faces full of astonishment.
"How… How was this possible?"
"He merely used one move and he… he managed to slice and tear our Blazing Inferno Spell into half?"
With this destructive force of Xu Que’s strike, the entire place fell into deathly silence. Even a pin drop could be heard.
On the other hand, Xu Que had no clue of what he had done. He stared at the bottomless canal on the ground and started cursing, "What the hell! This can’t be. I only used 20% of my power and the ground had been reduced to such a state? How do I walk over now?"
"..." Everyone heard him grumbling and pouted their lips in anger.
This was way too frightening!
This fellow is truly frightening!
With such amount of power, even strong Original Infant Stage Cultivators wouldn’t be able to survive if they had been the target of his strike!
And this guy even said that he was just at 20%? Bloody hell! I can’t take it anymore, hold me, I’m going to vomit blood!
Zeng Fan Rong and the others looked at one another, aghast. Their eyes were filled with shock and they were left speechless for a long time.
They really had thought that Xu Que was just bragging. In the end, he broke the entire spell in the blink of an eye. On top of that, the split was so thorough. It was the correct reaction for them to be speechless and also… for their legs to turn jelly in fear.
At this moment, it was as if everybody had arrived at a consensus. This self-proclaimed ‘Hua Wu Que", who was a handsome young man of the Golden Core Stage, wasn’t just a flirtatious braggart after all.
At this time, Xu Que was left with no alternatives and had to step on his lightning arcs. Executing the Lightning Haste, he sped down the aisle between the two seas of fire which was unignited. He landed in front of Zeng Fan Rong and the others before apologizing, "My apologies, Brother Zeng and my other brothers. I’ve made you all wait for a while!"
"Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough forcefully. The reward is 40 act tough points!"
"Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully putting on a good acting tough show forcefully. The reward is 60 act tough points!"
The system beeps sounded in Xu Que’s mind.
Xu Que froze for a moment. What does it mean? I got another reward for putting on a good show of acting tough? This is way too good. 100 act tough points were earned in one shot!
"Uh… Brother Hua, you… you truly are...powerful!" Zeng Fan Rong stuttered for almost half a day, unable to think of an adjective for Xu Que. At long last, he finally exclaimed "powerful".
Everyone else nodded in unison, expressing their agreement.
"No, I am not. It’s my fault for not being properly prepared. If I had known earlier about this Blazing Inferno Spell, I would’ve brought my Ninth Heaven Thunderbolt Extinguisher. With a slight blow, the entire sea of fire will be put out and I wouldn’t have caused so much damage. Ah damn! I even destroyed some grass and trees. Oh dear, this is my fault, my fault! I will certainly uphold the ‘Protecting the flowers and plants is everybody’s responsibility’ ethic the next time…"
As for Xu Que’s innate bragging ability, it came to him very naturally and fluidly each time he opened his mouth. This caused Zeng Fan Rong and the others to pause in shock.
"Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough forcefully. The reward is 10 act tough points!"
"Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough forcefully. The reward is 30 act tough points!"
With Xu Que’s relentless stream of words, the system beep sounded continuously in his head in response.
"Whoosh! Whoosh!" In the midst of Xu Que trying to express himself, two beams of light appeared from the mountains. Like shooting stars, the light rays zoomed towards the group of people in an instant.
Two young men who were of the Original Infant Stage level 1, appeared before them. They wore flowy, green embroidered robes and were apparently members of the Sky Incense Valley too.
When they arrived and saw that the Blazing Inferno Spell was split into two, they were at first surprised and then followed by confusion, they raised their eyebrows.
"What happened here?" One of them looked at the Spell Core position and asked.
A faint light shone from the Spell Core position as the two ladies stepped out. Their faces were still filled with terror and shock.
They looked at Xu Que once and told the men, "Reporting to my two Seniors. This guy here had split opened the entire Spell."
"Split open?" The two men were startled and turned their attention towards Xu Que.
Xu Que courteously clasped his hands in greeting, "Hello, my two brothers. My name is Hua Wu Que. May I ask where do I sign up for the Contest?"
The two men creased their brows even further.
One of them asked, "Did you break this Spell?"
"You flatter me, you flatter me!" Xu Que laughed humbly.
The man’s face became a bit annoyed. He bit his teeth, "I didn’t praise you!"
"Oh, my mistake, my mistake!" Xu Que laughed again.
The man groaned and reprimanded sternly, "Stop smiling at me. Do you know how valuable this spell is? How can you break this valuable spell just like that? I don’t care what kind of demonic arts you’ve used. I just want to tell you that you can stop thinking about entering the Contest Area. For now, you’ll stay here and wait for our master to come. He will personally settle the debt with you for destroying our Sect’s Spell!"
Upon hearing that, Xu Que’s smile vanished completely and was replaced by a gloomy expression.
Zeng Fan Rong and the others were momentarily stunned. Some of the others sniggered at him, clearly overjoyed at his misfortune. Some of them, however, shook their head and sympathized with Xu Que.
Having offended the Sky Incense Valley, he was definitely done for!
No matter how strong a person was, to the Sky Incense Valley, he was just a mere ant, waiting to be crushed by them!
The two female Sky Incense Valley disciples were startled. After they looked at both of their Seniors, they lost any desire to speak. Right to the end, none of them said anything.
After a few moments of silence, Xu Que’s lips started to reveal a chilly smile.
Originally, he wanted to register, visit the Contest Area to act tough and earn some act tough points. He didn’t plan to stir up any trouble.
What a pity. Things turned out differently from what he wanted!
"I’ll ask just one question. You have asked us to pass through the Spell in order to register for the Contest Area. Which rule stated that breaking the Spell wasn’t allowed?
Xu Que briefly asked, focusing his attention first on the two female Sky Incense Valley disciples. He then turned his focus back to the pair of Original Infant Staged men. After which…
"If there was no such rule in place, you...you all shall kneel down now, kowtow, and apologize to me!"
His resounding, cloud-piercing and rock shattering voice, resonated throughout the entire mountain forest and travelled into the distance.
