In the Heaven Palace Sect’s Taoist Sanctum, three law enforcement Elders, leading dozens of elite disciples from the law enforcement hall, had already surrounded Xuanyuan Wanrong.
At this moment, the majority of the people still couldn’t believe that their famous senior would’ve actually betrayed the Heaven Palace Sect by joining outsiders to trick the Heaven Palace Sect.
They really couldn’t figure out why Xuanyuan Wanrong would do this.
This also included the two law enforcement Elders.
Among the three law enforcement elders who Dean Wang Chi had left behind, only Elder Lin, who was dressed in black, had participated in the event that had caused Xuanyuan Qishang to die back in the day when she’d been a little girl. The other two law enforcement Elders knew nothing about what had happened in the past.
If they hadn’t just seen Xuanyuan Wanrong attack them and prevent them from surrounding Xu Que, they wouldn’t have easily believed that Xuanyuan Wanrong would betray her Sect.
“With such talent, why become a thief? Alas!” An unknowing Elder from the law enforcement hall looked at Xuanyuan Wanrong and sighed unhappily.
Xuanyuan Wanrong stood silent and proud, expressionless, not even bothering to explain. She knew very well that even if she’d told them what had happened back in the day, how many of these people would have believed her?
And, even if they did believe her, so what? In the end, hadn’t they just come along to see her die?
What was more was that Xu Que had told her earlier that this was just a world of memory. Everything in it had already happened, and thus, no matter what they did here, it couldn’t change the past.
So explanations didn’t really matter.
“Ha, ha, ha, this is ridiculous. Why become a thief? You don’t even know who is the thief. You’re all just blindly speculating here. And it’s all terribly stupid.” At this time, a laugh could be heard.
“Who’s that?” Several law enforcement Elders’s expressions became puzzled. And the disciples were also surprised.
Looking in the direction of the sound of the laughter, another person had appeared. They had no idea when this had happened, but there he was at the gate of the Heaven Palace Sect, at the place where previously there’d been an explosion. He was a handsome guy, with a touch of roguishness at the corners of his mouth. However, he also had a despicable air about him that made everyone want to beat him up.
“Tyrant!” The crowd immediately shouted his name.
“So it turns out that you are still here. What trick did you use, to actually lead the Dean and the others all the way to the Treasure Room? What was your ulterior motive?” Elder Lin shouted coldly, waving his hands. Several elite disciples from the law enforcement hall immediately went over and surrounded Xu Que.
Not only did Xu Que not run, but he took the initiative to walk closer to them. He said with a smile, “Do I still need to tell you about my ulterior motives?”
After he’d finished, he looked at Xuanyuan Wanrong and asked with a concerned tone, “Rong’er, they didn’t hurt you, right? Don’t be afraid, I’m here!”
Everyone who was witnessing this incident opened their eyes wide in disbelief.
“This guy actually called Xuanyuan Wanrong Rong’er?”
All the disciples from the Heaven Palace Sect were horrified. “What was the relationship between this guy and their senior?”
“Their senior was famous for not ever being close to anyone. She was notoriously cold and ruthless, but he’d called her Rong’er? He was…really amazing.”
“What are you doing here?” Xuanyuan Wanrong ignored what Xu Que had called her and asked him with a frown.
She was really not sure what Xu Que intended to do. The development of the current situation had already strayed far from the previous plan that Xu Que had told her about.
The important thing was that after the plan had been exposed, Xu Que had obviously had the opportunity to escape, and now for some reason he’d returned. It was difficult for her to understand why.
After all, with Xu Que’s current cultivation strength, returning was equivalent to walking right into trouble.
“Of course I’m here to open the spell Array, don’t you know? If I set the spell Array but didn’t open it, what was the point?” Xu Que walked toward the Taoist Sanctum.
“Open the spell Array? Your spell Array has already been set?” Xuanyuan Wanrong was startled.
“Of course, I’m famously fast!” Xu Que said with a smile.
Everyone was confused. “This guy had come back to open the spell Array. What spell Array?”
Unexpectedly, in the middle of his dialogue with Xuanyuan Wanrong, Xu Que had managed to walk smoothly into the Taoist Sanctum.
“What are you all waiting for, why aren’t you going to get him?” Elder Lin yelled.
A few of the elite disciples had managed to recover, and they simultaneously tried to use their Magic Arts to attack Xu Que.
“Hee, hee, hee, you guys are useless.” Xu Que smiled, and his figure flickered around as if he could predict the direction from which the people would attack, avoiding them by one step in advance, and then reappearing behind them.
“How is this possible?” Several elite disciples exclaimed.
In terms of cultivation stages, theirs were not any lower than Xu Que’s. They were all Golden Celestials of the Great All-Embracing Heaven. And in terms of combat skills, they also felt that they could overcome Xu Que.
However, Xu Que had managed to stay one step ahead and avoid all of their attacks, as if he somehow knew everything in advance, which made several people feel completely puzzled.
“Ha, ha, ha, do you guys know what the calamity-foreseeing art is? I can predict the future, what can you do to me?” Xu Que smiled smugly and, without pausing, immediately went to the center of the Taoist Sanctum.
“Spell Array, open!”
He tapped his toes lightly on the ground and the ground started to open up, making a loud noise.
After which, the lines on the ground started to flicker with golden light, with the Taoist Sanctum at the center, and spread frantically in all directions.
“Oh, no, this… our Mountain’s Protective Spell Array has been altered!” An Elder suddenly exclaimed.
“Stop him!” Elder Lin shouted, and at the same time his figure flickered as he headed toward Xu Que.
Xuanyuan Wanrong had been already prepared for this and immediately attacked, trying to stop the law enforcement Elders.
However, Xu Que was one step faster than she was, as if he had already anticipated their actions. But he had no intention of dodging them. Instead, he raised his hand and made a hand gesture, his lips moving slightly.
“The Clouds and Pouring Rain!”
An ethereal sound that seemed as if it came from outside the heavens escaped from Xu Que’s mouth.
Following which, the color of the sky changed dramatically.
The sky, which was supposed to be bright at this time, instantly became covered with dark clouds that weighed down darkly on the atmosphere.
Heavy rain started to fall from the sky.
Suddenly, the entire area was covered with raindrops, and all the law enforcement Elders and surrounding disciples from the Heaven Palace Sect were immediately frozen in place and couldn’t move.
“This…no, this is impossible, how can the laws of heaven and earth have been changed like this?” Elder Lin asked in horror.
“Ha, ha, ha, now this area is under my rule.” Xu Que laughed loudly.
Then, with a PFFT sound, he spurted out a mouthful of blood.
“Sh*t, this magical wisdom… Even if this is the System’s biggest function, which provides celestial core power, it is still rather unsustainable.” Xu Que looked bitter and delayed no longer. He quickly created a few strands of celestial core power and activated all the spell cores under his feet.
This magical wisdom was also one of the ten Great Arts of Compelling Divine Power. Its full name was the “All-Encompassing Magical Wisdom Divine Art”. With its wisdom and knowledge, one could have an unobstructed path to enlightenment and be able to summon the clouds and rain.
It was a pity that with his current cultivation stage, in addition to the System’s most powerful function giving him celestial core power, it was only enough to reach one-tenth of the power of a Divine Magic Art and could only freeze people.
However, this was already not easy. After all, those three law enforcement Elders were all Celestial Kings and Celestial Primes.
Xuanyuan Wanrong was stunned by the scene before her. She stood rooted to the spot, her mouth slightly open and her eyes full of horror.
She could never have imagined that a mere Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven such as Xu Que could easily freeze all the law enforcement Elders who were Celestial Kings and Celestial Primes, as well as all of the disciples of the Heaven Palace Sect.
Of course, if he hadn’t vomited blood, that would’ve been perfect.
“This guy…” Xuanyuan Wanrong couldn’t help but look at Xu Que in a new light.
This guy was almost qualified to be her man!
