Ultimate Scheming System Chapter 826
With a flash of brilliance, the Talisman in Xu Que’s hand disappeared without a trace. Then a pale golden halo suddenly emerged. It surrounded Xu Que’s body and began to glow brightly.
Xu Que took a step in the air and, with the help of the pull of the blue beads, broke through the sound barrier and lunged toward Qin Wei.
“You’re asking for death!” A satirizing gaze flashed across Qin Wei’s irises as he continued to maneuver the beads, triggering forces more and more violent.
In the blink of an eye, Xu Que had rushed up on the blue beads. At this time, the beads had become as big as half a person. They were blue throughout like huge water drops, sparkling as they rotated at high speed.
Without any hesitation, Xu Que threw out a straight punch!
He smashed down a blow that made a deafening crash. The large blue beads suddenly burst into a thick stream of liquid, engulfing Xu Que and enveloping him whole.
Qin Wei broke into a cold smile. “You’re merely at the Form Synthesis Stage. Did you think that I, the general, can’t deal with you?…”
Qin Wei’s expression stiffened before he could finish. Then, his eyes went wide in shock and disbelief.
“This…how could this be possible?” He exclaimed.
While the blue beads were still spinning, the liquid that was surrounding Xu Que had suddenly fallen off!
Xu Que appeared in front of him without a scratch. He then, once again, clasped his fist and landed a heavy blow on the blue beads.
“Stop!” Qin Wei yelled. He wanted to deactivate the blue beads and collect them back! He was the only one who knew that, although the Celestial Artifact was powerful, it would need to recondense once the water curtain fell. Otherwise, once someone lands a hit on it, it would cause damage to the Celestial Artifact. Even he could be injured from the rebounded damage! After all, he had already made this Celestial Artifact into his Soulbound Weapon via refinement.
“Li Bai, stop!” Qin Wei shouted anxiously.
However, it was already too late to retrieve the beads, much less to stop Xu Que.
“Stop, my ass!” Xu Que yelled. At the very instant he had formed a fist, he had adjusted his full body’s strength to its peak. The God of Hell’s Compulsion was in full swing, and with earth-shaking violence, punched the blue pearl with all his might!
So what if he was at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage?
So what if he had a semi-Celestial Artifact?
Your Act-Tough Saint right here is a Real Man for five seconds. In these seconds, I am invincible!
Originating from the core of the bead, a thunderous crash instantly rang out throughout the plains!
“No!” Qin Wei howled in agony as his whole body was thrown by the impact. He quickly paled and coughed out some blood.
The blue bead before him was severely damaged, with a very obvious crack running through its surface. It fell directly to the ground as it lost its luster. It was already half-destroyed.
At the same time, Xu Que’s invincible aura began to fade away slowly. His five seconds of invincibility were over. However, Xu Que had no fear of Qin Wei at the moment.
This powerful being at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage never expected such a thing to happen. Initially, he wanted to simplify the process and kill Xu Que with a Celestial Artifact. Little did he know that this fellow would escape uninjured, and that, after he blocked the Celestial Artifact, he would take advantage of the Celestial Artifact’s frailty and break the bead directly. Mind you, that was his Soulbound Weapon! Once damaged, it would hurt his roots, causing significant trauma.
Therefore, as Xu Que faced a seriously injured opponent at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage, he did not need to worry about what the other side would do to him even if he could not kill Qin Wei. Everyone was now on equal footing.
“Good fight, General Qin! You managed to survive even after I unleashed 60 percent of my prowess!” Xu Que picked up the cracked blue bead and looked at Qin Wei with a knowing smile.
Qin Wei’s face was ghastly pale and blood kept gushing from the corners of his mouth. He was silently shocked and, upon hearing Xu Que’s words, he was speechless. He felt so gloomy that he almost vomited more blood.
Do you call that a Form Synthesis Stage? He was able to defeat me like this with only 60 percent of his strength. If he goes all out, won’t I be bombarded to smithereens?
Crap, where had my thousands of years worth of cultivation gone? To a dog?
“Oh, General Qin, your ball’s cracked!” Xu Que pretended to be surprised as he pointed to the cracks on the blue bead.
Qin Wei’s face quickly turned black, and, with mind control, he summoned the bead back.
The blue bead immediately disappeared from Xu Que’s hand in an instant and was returned to Qin Wei’s body. After all, it was his Soulbound Weapon, which can be called out or called back anytime and anywhere!
Xu Que slightly raised his eyebrows and silently cursed that he had been too slow. Otherwise, he would have made the System steal the bead. However, it was only a semi-Celestial Artifact. On top of that, it was already damaged. Thus, Xu Que did not feel any real regret as it was now unattractive.
“Li Bai, you’re not too bad.” Qin Wei heaved a deep sigh and stared at Xu Que intently.
Xu Que shrugged his shoulders and boasted, “Surely I deserve better than a ‘too bad.’ I’m a genius!”
“…” Qin Wei bit his gums, feeling a strong urge to rush up and fight Xu Que once more! Nevertheless, he managed to hold himself back. That was because the kind of Talisman Xu Que had just pulled out was simply astounding. It had protected someone from a Celestial Artifact attack. That was just terrifying! Moreover, he could not figure out how many pieces of Talisman Xu Que had on his body. He was afraid that he would be killed if he rushed up again. So after a few moments of contemplation, he thought of an idea. He burst out laughing.
“Ha, ha, ha, nice! It proves that I did not misjudge. You have potential!” Qin Wei’s expression changed so quickly that Xu Que did not see it coming. A second ago, this old man saw him as his nemesis; however, now he was now suddenly laughing brightly and even showing appreciation.
What’s up with this situation?
Xu Que was taken aback and looked incredulously at Qin Wei.
Qin Wei smiled with a smile that screamed kindness and said, “Li Bai, I made a move just now to test your strength, but you exceeded my expectations! The young are remarkable – to think that you had such a powerful strength and means!”
Wow, you’re pulling this move on me when you’re losing?
Bro, don’t you think that that was too unconvincing?
Xu Que glanced scornfully at Qin Wei. He then suddenly laughed and waved, “You’re right, you’re right. So General Qin was testing me! You almost scared me to death – I thought that you were trying to kill me!”
“How could that be? I have always loved talented people. Seeing how extraordinary you are, I couldn’t help myself but I needed to test your waters. Li Bai, the reason I am here is actually to invite you personally to join the Divine Son Division. I wonder what you would say to that?” Qin Wei quickly piled on his smiles.
Xu Que smirked and exclaimed, “Okay! The reason why I tried to display my strength this much was to attract the attention of General Qin. I had always wanted to join the Divine Son Division, so this is my dream come true!”
“Oh? That’s a good thing. Why don’t you take this Token of Passing first? With this Token, you could travel all around the Tong Tian Nation of our Xuanzhen Continent. Everybody would know that you are a man of the Divine Son Division and will give you respect!” Qin Wei said as he took out a Token of the Divine Son Division and handed it to Xu Que.
Xu Que was not shy either. He accepted it directly. To be honest, he still wanted to kill this powerhouse at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage. However, this is a big Boss. It would take more than 100,000 Acting Tough Points and an Ultra Invincible Emblem to seriously injure him.
If he had to let it go like this, it would be a waste of a lot of Experience Points and even a Big Mystery Bag. However, even if Xu Que had wanted to pursue this idea, he could not do so. He would have gone for the kill If there was another Ultra Invincible Emblem. However, he had depleted his Taoist Connotation. Hence, the King of Tough-Acting Fist couldn’t be performed, and he was not confident of other tricks that could kill Qin Wei.
As the saying goes, a centipede dies but never falls! Xu Que knew this very well.
Qin Wei was still, after all, a cultivator at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage. If it weren’t for the showing of his Celestial Artifact and Xu Que’s five seconds of invincibility, he would have had no choice but to run away.
Therefore, even if Qin Wei was seriously injured, he did not believe that such a strong man would have no other means to protect his life and let himself be killed. He would have revealed his connotation, which would have been a significant loss.
In reality, Xu Que was right. Judging by strength alone, Qin Wei was still stronger than Xu Que. However, he was afraid that Xu Que could still have some of those invincible Talismans. Therefore, he stopped himself from acting recklessly and changed his strategy to recruit Xu Que instead. In his opinion, as long as the wounds were healed, there were still plenty of chances to kill Xu Que, and he was in no hurry.
Therefore, after Xu Que received the Token, they both smiled warmly. They shook hands and made peace as if they felt regret that they had not known each other sooner. However, Qin Wei did not notice Xu Que’s actions. Xu Que had summoned the System interface as he laughed. “System, start the Ancient Life and Death Wheel quickly! Absorb his Life-span and get as much as you can!”
