Chapter 748: Be Sincere
Translator: Panda_Penn Editor: Chrissy
Hao Changjun felt embarrassed. He was now in a pickle.
Should he leave? If so, his previous efforts would be flushed down the drain. He might have depleted quite an amount of energy of the bead. By leaving, he would give Wu Guangde and Chen Tianxian a great advantage.
Should he stay and attack with them? Say they could crack the bead, how should they divide the spoils? If there was going to be an internal conflict, it was highly likely that he could be killed by the two lunatics of the Mage Imperial Universe.
“I should stay!”
For this bead, Hao Family had lost three young disciples. Hao Changjun was not going to squander away Hao Family’s great sacrifice.
He made up his mind and stepped aside. When Wu Guangde and Chen Tianxian arrived, Hao Changjun said with sarcasm, “You two are not there looting the Leng Dynasty yourself. You think I don’t know what you are thinking about? The pot calls the kettle black.”
Chen Tianxian sneered while Wu Guangde flew into rage. Staring at Hao Changjun coldly, he said, “Hao Changjun, you are the filthy one and don’t you slander us. Our Earth Immortal Realm warrior was attacked here and sent a warning message to me. Why else would I hurry over?”
Wu Guangde looked at the bell in the distance and continued angrily, “Release him now!”
Hao Changjun grabbed at the air and the bell flew back. The two Earth Immortal Realm warriors had already passed out.
Wu Guangde made sure that his Earth Immortal Realm warrior was okay and snorted. He then glanced at the floating bead and the caved ground. He asked with his eyebrows knitted together, “Hao Changjun, you have attacked for such a long time and still cannot crack the bead?”
Hao Changjun nodded and replied with frustration, “Three disciples of our family has died. This is a huge loss…”
“Ha, ha, ha, you deserve it!”
Chen Tianxian said with sarcasm and flew toward the bead. He generated a blood-red hand image and went ahead to attack. But Wu Guangde didn’t go because he was worried about Wu Xie.
Lu Li knew clearly very well what was going on outside. He thought of using Wu Xie’s life as a leverage at once. However, he remembered how Hao Changjun could give up on Haochuan and the others. Those from the Mage Imperial Unvierse were not sane people. There was a chance that Wu Guangde didn’t care about Wu Xie’s life, either.
Lu Li thought for a while before he delivered his message, “Family Patriarch Wu, you no longer care about Wu Xie’s life?”
Wu Guangde looked wickedly at Chen Tianxian who stopped his actions. Wu Guangde came over and shouted coldly, “Punk, what more do you want? We have leveled the City of Leng for you. Why haven’t you released them?”
“I can release them!”
Lu Li said in sincerity and honesty, “Also… after I do so, I can relieve them of the soul seeds. Young Master Wu Xie will return unharmed.”
Wu Guangde’s eyes glowed. Wu Xie was his grandson, his favorite among a large group of grandsons and granddaughters.
Lu Li replied, “I am not gay, so I don’t fancy him. Your young master is not that powerful. I can do with one less soul slave. I have one term. If you agree, I will release him right away. If I don’t do as promised… my life shall end tomorrow. I swear in the name of Emperor Heaven Reverse!”
Wu Guangde was getting thrilled. Emperor Heaven Reverse was an almighty warrior in the Divinity. Nobody would swear in his name under normal circumstances. If Emperor Heaven Reverse sensed someone breaking promises, the person would be killed by Emperor Heaven Reverse’s divine punishment.
Wu Guangde nodded more than happily and said, “You name it. I will agree to any terms as long as it is not over the line.”
“Ha, ha, it won’t be!”
Lu Li said with a kindness. However, his voice turned ferocious the next second, “You two kill Hao Family Semi-God Realm warrior for me and I will release as I promised!”
Swish, swish, swish~
Hao Changjun turned pale from fear. He had lost his full vigor since his arm was broken. In addition, he had been launching attacks consecutively for a long time. His state worsened after he resorted to his strongest means. He could not put his power into full play now. His death could not be escaped when faced with the two lunatics from the Mage Imperial Universe.
Wu Guangde and Chen Tianxian looked at each other. They saw in each other’s eyes a glint of killing intent. When Wu Xie was rescued, Wu Guangde would have no more concern. They two could attack at the Wicked Bead together. The chances of the bead getting cracked could be greatly enhanced.
Of all the people of the Mage Imperial Universe, nobody was in a sane state. On an average day, they could have serious internal conflict. However, when they were faced with outside enemies, they would have very close cooperation. They would only settle their own differences after the external enemies were exterminated.
When Hao Changjun was killed, the bead would belong to the Mage Imperial Universe. As a matter of fact, the two had decided to kill Hao Changjun as soon as the three of them cracked the bead together.
In an instant, killing intent filled the two. They both glared at Hao Changjun. The latter shuddered in terror. He dashed toward the southeast without any hesitation. He flew for a while and then even vanished into thin air.
“It is too late to run now—”
Chen Tianxian waved his hand. A blood-red palm bore down from the sky and smashed down. With this action, the space shook violently.
Hao Changjun was shaken out from the space. His speed was undermined for dozens of times. Now, it was as if he was in a slow motion.
A spear appeared in Wu Guangde’s hand. He whooshed onward in a blur and arrived behind Hao Changjun instantly. Over the spearhead there was a dark golden hue. Space around the spearhead was torn apart. Wu Guangde had employed a Profound Meaning.
The spear pierced into Hao Changjun’s back in the speed of lightning. A Quasi Relic armor appeared over Hao Chnagjun’s body but the spear turned into a shadow and went in unhindered.
Blood spirted out from Hao Changjun’s mouth. He tried his best to generate a Sword of Ruins with his hands and cut at Wu Guangde.
“Ha, ha, ha!”
Wu Guangde laughed out. He didn’t run and the spear had entered Hao Changjun’s body. At the same time, Wu Guangde waved his right hand and smashed at Hao Changjun’s head.
As the Sword of Ruins came down, both Wu Guangde and Hao Changjun were smashed away. Mountains fell and the earth split. Rubbles rolled down, stirring up dust. Even the ground three hundred miles away was shaking.
Amid the smog, Wu Guangde flew up. He was covered in blood but he held a body in his hand. It was Hao Changjun.
He flew toward the Wicked Bead and bellowed, “Lu Li, release him. I have killed Hao Changjun.”
Chen Tianxian came over from another side. He had just slammed the Hao Family Earth Immortal Realm warrior who was trying to run away to death.
Lu Li said. The Wicked Bead lit up and Wu Xie flew out. As soon as he did, he ran to Wu Guangde and shouted, choking, “Grandpa!”
“Good! Lu Li, you are a man of your words!”
Wu Guangde took a healing pellet and made sure with psychic power that there was no more soul seed in Wu Xie’s brain. He was not a free man again. Wu Guangde nodded in acknowledgement.
Chen Tianxian came. He glanced at Wu Xie and then the Wicked Bead, and said, “Dear Lu, have you heard of this—The precious stone lands its innocent possessor in jail. Your power is too low for you to operate this bead. Tell us. What will make you give the bead up to us?”
“You want the bead?”
Lu Li said. He thought for a while and then continued, “But there is only one bead and there are two of you. How about you two have a fight and I will talk with the surviving part?”
Chen Tianxian and Wu Guangde looked at each other. The latter felt scared. Just now, in the process to kill Hao Changjun, he had sustained a heavy blow from the Sword of Ruins. If Chen Tianxian took the initiative first, he might lose his life…
Chen Tianxian said with sarcasm, “Dear Lu, you are quite practiced in the art of sowing discord. Don’t insult us. Be sincere, okay?”
