When Qin Jue woke up, he felt something warm on his chest, as if something was pressing against his body.
He slowly opened his eyes and realized that there was a palm-sized figure lying on his chest.
Qin Jue was stunned. What was going on?
“Master, you’re awake.”
The figure looked up and said happily.
On closer inspection, it was a girl.
And… she was a loli?
Qin Jue was somewhat dumbfounded.
Wait, did she call me Master?
Could it be… Yun Xi?
As expected, the girl’s next words confirmed Qin Jue’s thoughts.
“Master, don’t you recognize me? I’m Yun Xi.”
The girl’s eyes were wide with grievance.
Her pink face was a little chubby, and she was extremely cute. Especially her bright eyes, they were pure and flawless, making one want to rub her bald.
“Are you really Yun Xi?”
Qin Jue said in disbelief. Wasn’t Yun Xi only at level two? How could it be like this?
As if seeing Qin Jue’s confusion, the girl explained, “It was the dragon blood of the Great Void Dragon that allowed me to take human form in advance.”
As she spoke, the girl moved her body and sat cross-legged on Qin Jue’s chest.
Not only was the dragon blood of the Great Void Dragon extremely corrosive, but it also contained powerful lifeblood and vitality.
After bathing in the dragon blood, Yun Xi had clearly improved in all aspects. Coupled with the fact that she had often soaked in the spirit spring these past few days, she had actually manifested miraculously.
Even Yun Xi herself didn’t expect this.
It was only at this moment that Qin Jue understood why Yun Xi had jumped into the dragon blood yesterday. So that was the reason.
In addition, he noticed that there was a strand of hair on Yun Xi’s head. Uh, to be precise, it was a blade of grass. Every time the girl thought about something, the blade of grass would sway left and right.
But… Why are you naked!
Without any time to think, Qin Jue immediately condensed his spirit energy and made Yun Xi a set of clothes to wear.
“Wow, it’s beautiful. Thank you, Master.”
Yun Xi stood on Qin Jue’s chest and circled it, very satisfied with her first set of clothes.
To be honest, the ability Yun Xi displayed was truly unlike a weed that had gained sentience on its own.
However, ordinary weeds could not develop sentience on their own.
Forget it, forget it. She’s my disciple anyway.
If it were anyone else, they might ask about the root of the matter, but Qin Jue’s ability to accept things had always been stronger.
Moreover, before this, Qin Jue had always been thinking about what Yun Xi would look like after taking human form.
He did not expect that she would become a loli as he had wished. His only regret was that she was too small.
Thinking like this, Qin Jue rubbed Yun Xi’s head, put her on his shoulder, and then walked out of the cave.
The Nine Nether Pig Emperor’s corpse was still lying on the ground not far away. Because it was enveloped by spirit energy, there were no signs of it rotting.
Qin Jue cut another piece of meat and sat next to it to barbecue.
Not long after, a dense fragrance spread out, and Yun Xi immediately revealed a drooling expression.
In the past, she was only a weed and could not eat. But now, it was different. She had already manifested and could completely eat.
“You want to eat it too?”
Noticing the look on Yun Xi’s face, Qin Jue said with a faint smile.
Yun Xi hurriedly nodded forcefully.
“Here you go.”
Qin Jue tore off a piece of beast meat and handed it to Yun Xi.
“Thank you, Master.”
Yun Xi happily received the piece of meat and stuffed it into her mouth. Then, her eyes lit up. “Master, it’s so good.”
Yun Xi puffed up her cheeks and spoke unclearly like a hamster.
Qin Jue didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry. He actually felt like an old father.
“I want more!”
After eating the food in her mouth, Yun Xi immediately said impatiently.
Qin Jue was helpless and could only cut the remaining beast meat in half and give half to Yun Xi.
However, this time, Yun Xi wasn’t in a hurry to snatch the beast meat. Instead, she stretched out her hand and pointed at the wine pot next to Qin Jue. The meaning was obvious: she also wanted to drink it.
Clearly, Qin Jue’s habit of pouring wine every day had already turned Yun Xi into an alcoholic.
Finally, Qin Jue took out a small pot of several dozen-year-old spirit wine from his storage ring and handed it to Yun Xi. It couldn’t be helped. With Yun Xi’s current cultivation, she could only drink several dozen-year-old spirit wines. Otherwise, she wouldn’t be able to bear it.
Therefore, an extremely heartwarming scene appeared in front of the cave. Qin Jue was sitting on a rock, drinking wine and eating meat while Yun Xi ran from Qin Jue’s shoulder to his head. They were also drinking wine and eating meat, like a father and daughter.
When Su Yan came out of the cave, Qin Jue and Yun Xi had already eaten their fill and were sitting on the stone to digest.
“Hmm? What’s that?”
Su Yan quickly noticed Yun Xi above Qin Jue’s head.
Because Yun Xi was only the size of a palm and was exceptionally cute, Su Yan could not help but fall for it with a single glance.
Su Yan’s absolutely beautiful face revealed a maternal smile. If it weren’t for Qin Jue’s status, she would have rushed up and hugged Yun Xi long ago.
“Senior, is this your daughter?”
Su Yan asked carefully.
Qin Jue :”…”
Have you ever seen such a small human?
“She’s Yun Xi.”
As he spoke, Qin Jue raised the drunk Yun Xi and pointed at the silly hair on her head.
“Ah? Yun Xi? How could that be possible? She took human form?”
Su Yan said in disbelief.
It was already unbelievable that a level two spirit herb could develop sentience. Now, it had actually transformed?
However, Su Yan immediately thought of how Yun Xi had bathed in dragon blood yesterday. If that was the case, she could understand.
“Senior, can I touch her?”
After hesitating for a moment, Su Yan said in anticipation.
Qin Jue nodded.
After obtaining permission, Su Yan immediately stretched out her hand to rub Yun Xi’s head. At this moment, Yun Xi was already completely drunk, and her head was dizzy. She was utterly unable to resist and could only allow Su Yan to rub his head.
Su Yan pinched Yun Xi’s face and found that it was incomparably soft and sticky. Moreover, it was abnormally smooth, unlike a spirit herb.
“If only I had one too.”
Su Yan was rather envious.
It was hard to imagine that this cold and aloof holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect would actually have such a side to her.
Ever since Master Thunder Breeze died, Su Yan had become the hope of the entire Thunder Breeze Sect.
It was precisely because of this that Su Yan had come to the Death Spirit Valley to train and seek an opportunity to break through.
And these three days of life made her very relaxed. She almost forgot the pressure and hope on her shoulders.
Witnessing this scene, Qin Jue sighed slightly and stood up.
“Alright, I’ve been here for three days. It’s about time for me to leave.”
“Ah? Where is Senior going?”
Su Yan was stunned. She didn’t expect Qin Jue to suddenly leave.
“Sacred Land of the Central Continent…”
Qin Jue looked into the depths of the Death Spirit Valley. He had come out this time because he wanted to take a look at the Sacred Land of the Central Continent. If he was lucky, he might be able to obtain even more thousand-year-old spirit wine. Even if he was unlucky, he could still go to the Sacred Land to plunder.
In short, it was a sure win.
