Chapter 104: Breakthrough

“What are you going to do after you arrive at the Sacred Land of the Central Continent?”
Su Yan asked without thinking, but she then realized that she was being nosy.
Although Qin Jue had saved her three times, strictly speaking, the two of them weren’t familiar with each other. At most, they could only be considered acquaintances. She didn’t even know Qin Jue’s identity or where he lived.
It was just that for some reason, when Su Yan heard that Qin Jue was leaving, she felt a sense of loss.
“To travel.” Qin Jue answered casually.
“Can I go with Senior?”
Su Yan said without any reason.
Qin Jue was stunned and thought that he had misheard.
Seeing this, Su Yan’s charming face flushed red. She was about to take back her words when Qin Jue said, “Sure, but would your Thunder Breeze Sect allow it?”
Speaking of which, Su Yan should be the most beautiful woman Qin Jue had seen so far. It wasn’t an exaggeration to say that she was devastatingly beautiful.
As long as Su Yan wasn’t acting like a nuisance, no one would hate a woman like her.
Of course, if the person in question was a man like Shen Zhiwen and not a woman, Qin Jue would definitely find it troublesome.
Su Yan didn’t expect Qin Jue to actually agree and hurriedly nodded. “I came out to train this time to seek an opportunity to break through. The elders will definitely agree.”
Now, the hopes of the entire Thunder Breeze Sect were on her, so Su Yan urgently wanted to become stronger.
The only fortunate thing was that with the protection of the other Three Major Sects, the Thunder Breeze Sect shouldn’t be in any danger for a hundred years. However, that meant that Su Yan had to step into the Legendary Stage within this hundred years. Staying by Qin Jue’s side was undoubtedly the best choice.
After pondering for a moment, Qin Jue nodded.
“Thank you, Senior!” Su Yan was overjoyed.
In fact, she had wanted to go to the Sacred Land of the Central Continent for a long time. After all, the Sacred Land of the Central Continent was also known as the Sacred Land of Martialism. It was unknown how many cultivators yearned to go there.
“Senior, when are we leaving?”
Su Yan could not help but ask.
Originally, Qin Jue planned to leave today, but now that Su Yan was joining his party, he changed it to tomorrow.
Su Yan pinched Yun Xi’s face again before letting go. Then, she cut off a piece of meat from the Nine Nether Pig Emperor beside her and also began to roast it.
Although the Nine Nether Pig Emperor’s beast meat was not as precious as the meat of the Great Void Dragon, it was still a Supreme Stage fiend beast and was very helpful for cultivation, especially now that Su Yan was about to break through.
As for Yun Xi, she was already sleeping soundly on Qin Jue’s head.
After eating two mouthfuls of beast meat, Su Yan’s expression suddenly changed.
“What is it?”
Sensing the woman’s abnormality, Qin Jue frowned.
“I… I think I’m going to break through.”
Without any time to think, Su Yan immediately sat cross-legged and entered a cultivation state.
Qin Jue was stunned. He didn’t expect Su Yan to break through at this time.
However, if Su Yan could successfully advance to the Supreme Stage, it would save a lot of trouble.
Su Yan was indeed worthy of being the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect. Not long after she sat down, a powerful suction force erupted from her body, crazily absorbing the spirit qi between heaven and earth and forming a huge vortex above her head.
In the entire Southern Land, there were almost no more than ten people who could compare with Su Yan in terms of cultivation talent, and most of them were holy sons of the other three major sects.
Some time ago, Shen Zhiwen had just broken through his shackles and became the first person among the younger generation to advance to the Supreme Stage. His name shook the Southern Land and suppressed the twins of the Archaic Mysteries Sect and the holy son of the Sword Sect.
And Su Yan would be the second person to break through to the Supreme Stage.
At a certain moment, the sky suddenly darkened. Faint lightning flashed through the clouds, and strong winds constantly swept through the area, as if they were about to overturn the land.
This was the sign that the “Thunder Breeze Art” was about to break through.
Suddenly, a bolt of lightning struck Su Yan.
Strangely, Su Yan was not injured. Instead, her aura began to rise continuously.
Qin Jue was expressionless. He waved his hand and set up a barrier, isolating himself from Yun Xi to avoid affecting Su Yan.
Another bolt of lightning fell and enveloped Su Yan again.
Immediately after, more and more lightning fell, as if it wanted to drown Su Yan, but Qin Jue noticed that these lightning bolts were not just simple lightning, but condensed from void spirit qi!
As time passed, Su Yan’s aura became even stronger. Many abnormalities began to appear continuously, spirit energy surged, and the atmosphere was magnificent. It was almost the same as when Qin Jue had refined a perfected grade four pill, or even better.
Many fiend beasts hiding in the depths of the Death Spirit Valley saw this scene and thought that Qin Jue had come again. They were so frightened that they fled one after another, hiding in a corner and shivering.
“Is this the difference between the Clear Void Scripture and the Thunder Breeze Art?”
Qin Jue pondered.
Compared to when Bai Ye broke through, the phenomenon that Su Yan created was undoubtedly even more exaggerated. This was even after Bai Ye had suppressed it for many years.
Although Su Yan’s cultivation talent was stronger than Bai Ye’s, Bai Ye was still absolutely the top existence among Heaven Stage cultivators. There shouldn’t be such a huge gap between the two of them.
Then the problem was obviously with cultivation techniques.
In fact, Qin Jue had never had any concept of cultivation techniques. At first, he also cultivated the Clear Void Scripture, but he only used less than three years to surpass the Heaven Stage. After that, he continued to grow stronger without doing anything, so he didn’t care much about it.
But what happened with Luo Weiwei previously made Qin Jue realize that cultivators who cultivated high-level cultivation techniques were far stronger than cultivators who cultivated low-level cultivation techniques. This could be seen from how Luo Weiwei crushed her opponents of the same realm in the Mountain Gate Tournament.
As for the Thunder Breeze Sect, it was once one of the Four Major Sects. The “Thunder Breeze Art” was not inferior to the “Pure Yang True Technique” in any way. In that case, it did not seem strange.
On this trip to the Sacred Land of the Central Continent, perhaps he could consider plundering some high-level cultivation techniques to bring back to Bai Ye.
After an unknown period of time, Su Yan’s aura finally reached its peak. Then, her body slowly rose into the sky.
In an instant, violent winds blew, and lightning surrounded him. With Su Yan at the center, it spread out, shaking the heavens and the earth.
Su Yan suddenly opened her eyes and shot out a divine light. Her aura was quickly retracted as if it had never existed, but it was also difficult to ignore.
She had already successfully advanced to the Supreme Stage.
Qin Jue took a sip of wine and raised his voice.
Su Yan let out a turbid breath and circulated the cultivation technique for a moment before descending from the sky. “Thank you, Senior. Without your help, I wouldn’t have been able to break through so quickly.”
If she hadn’t eaten the meat of the three Supreme Stage fiend beast that Qin Jue had killed, it would indeed be impossible for Su Yan to break through so quickly.
Most importantly, after meeting Qin Jue, her state of mind had also changed and was no longer as tense as before.
After advancing to the Supreme Stage, Su Yan was clearly much more confident. After all, among the younger generation of the Southern Land, only she and Shen Zhiwen had broken through, which proved that the two of them had already pulled away from the other geniuses.
And the gap would only grow wider.
