Chapter 303: Robbing by Blocking the Door
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Somewhere on the planar battlefield.
A simple mound of soil, a square stone tablet.
A man dressed in green stood in front of this simple tomb.
On one side, the body of a woman in shabby clothes lay on the ground.
After an unknown amount of time, Gu Xi spoke softly. “Brother, have a safe journey.”
It had been two days since the incident at Safe Zone No. 5.
During these two days, Gu Xi searched the entire Safe Zone, but he had not found Wang Shi’s body. He had no choice but to find a good location with beautiful scenery and make such a simple and crude grave.
It could also be considered as giving Wang Shi a home.
As for Liu Qingqing, Gu Xi wanted to bring her back to the Medicine King Valley.
After staying for a while, Gu Xi patted the soil on the grave, then picked up Liu Qingqing and looked into the distance.
Today was the last day of the Spirit-chasing Competition.
Everything should be over.
“Don’t worry, Our Medicine King Valley will definitely be the champion this time,” Gu Xi mumbled and looked down at Liu Qingqing in his arms.
There was a hint of relief on her delicate and pretty face, as if she had finally been freed.
Without further hesitation, Gu Xi tapped his toes and his entire body transformed into a stream of light as he rushed into the distance.
The planar battlefield, exit.
At this moment, a huge void crack was slowly squirming here.
After passing through this place, the contestants would return to the Southern Continent. When everyone returned to the Southern Continent, the final ranking of this competition would be determined based on the points in their jade pendants.
Gu Xi sat cross-legged in front of the exit, more than a thousand feet away, closing his eyes to rest.
Liu Qingqing was also quietly lying on the side, allowing the breeze to blow past, without the slightest movement.
Up until now, the Medicine King Valley’s points were still pitifully low. If this was the end, even Gu Xi, who was ranked last, would not feel the slightest bit surprised.
Howver, today, he would change all of this.
As time passed bit by bit, there were ripples in the distance.
Gu Xi slowly opened his eyes, and a sharp light flashed through his pitch-black eyes.
Looking at the distant horizon, he saw that there were a few rays of light rapidly rushing towards this place. Clearly, they were the contestants who were preparing to leave this place.
Gu Xi stood up and slowly stretched, patting the dust on his clothes.
“They’re finally here,” he muttered, and a smile appeared on his expressionless face.
Soon, the rays of light arrived before him, and then stopped in mid-air.
It was obvious that these people had also noticed Gu Xi’s existence.
“What’s the meaning of Your Excellency being here?” a man who looked like a scholar took the initiative to ask, a trace of doubt on his face.
Gu Xi glanced at the five people in front of him. They were all only cultivators in the King stage. The most outstanding one among them was the man who spoke. He was at the peak of the King stage and was only one step away from the Quasi-saint stage.
“I don’t have any other meaning. I just want to borrow your points.”
Gu Xi’s face was expressionless, making it impossible to tell whether he was happy or angry.
Hearing this, the faces of the people on the opposite side immediately darkened.
It sounded nice to call it borrowing, but was this not blatant robbery?
The man who looked like a scholar frowned and immediately shook his head. He said, “Sir, it’s better for you to stop dreaming. Although our Xuanling Sect didn’t obtain many points this time, all of them were obtained through our hard work. Why would we hand them over?”
“Senior Brother Li, why are you talking so much nonsense with this guy?”
“A person actually wants to rob us of our points. I think this kid is more or less here to give us points.”
A tall man with a fierce appearance moved his body and said with a cold smile.
The man called Senior Brother Li frowned, but he stopped the person behind him, indicating that he should not be rash. Clearly, he did not want to offend someone at the last moment.
“I will pretend that I did not hear your words earlier. I hope that you will give way.” Senior Brother Li cupped his hands together towards Gu Xi and spoke in a deep voice.
“This fellow’s temper is quite good.”
Gu Xi quietly thought in his heart when he saw this scene.
If it was any other ordinary cultivator, they would have long been unable to resist taking action.
“What if I don’t?” Gu Xi’s voice sounded once again.
Senior brother Li’s expression gradually sank. Soon after, he softly said, “Tie Xiong.”
The tall man behind him smiled when he heard this. After which, extraordinary spiritual energy erupted from his body and pounced toward Gu Xi.
Gu Xi did not attempt to dodge. Instead, he quietly stood at his original spot.
“This brat really doesn’t know death.”
“That’s right. It doesn’t feel good to take a punch from Tie Xiong.”
Seeing Gu Xi standing there like a fool, they could not help but laugh.
As fellow teammates, they were naturally very clear about Tie Xiong’s punch.
Although Tie Xiong’s current cultivation was only at the King stage, a punch from a cultivator at the same stage as him could take half of his life even if he did not die. Even Senior Brother Li, who was at the peak of the King stage, did not dare to face him head-on. From this, one could see the power of Tie Xiong’s punch.
Soon, a muffled sound rang out.
Just as the few of them were prepared to watch how Gu Xi died tragically under Tie Xiong’s punch, what happened next made their eyes widen.
They saw a strong figure flying backward and smashing fiercely in front of them.
The person in front of them was none other than Tie Xiong, whom they had bragged about just now. However, his right hand was already fractured, and his forehead was covered in a cold sweat. His expression was filled with fear, it was as if he had experienced something terrible.
“I’ll give you one more chance. Leave some points, or leave your lives.”
Before the few of them could recover from their shock, Gu Xi’s voice sounded again.
When they regained their senses, their faces were filled with anger. Waves of extraordinary spiritual power burst out from their bodies. It was obvious that they wanted to make a move.
“We’ll give it to you.”
However, at this moment, Senior Brother Li, who was at the front, suddenly opened his mouth and threw the jade pendant on his body toward Gu Xi from afar.
“Senior Brother Li, this…”
Seeing this, the others had puzzled expressions on their faces.
These were the points that they had worked hard to earn. How could they give it to someone so easily? Moreover, Gu Xi had even injured Tie Xiong in front of them.
Senior Brother Li shook his head with a solemn expression, “This person’s strength is profound. I’m afraid that even if we attack him together, we might not be his match. Instead of ending up in such a miserable state, we might as well obediently hand over the points.”
On the other side, Gu Xi had successfully divided half of the points into his own jade pendant.
At the same time, Medicine King Valley’s points began to quietly increase.
