“Master, I want to eat this.”
“Master, I want to eat this.”
“Master, this looks delicious.”
On the bustling street, Yun Xi wanted to eat everything she saw. She didn’t look like a spirit herb taking form at all. She was clearly a little gluttonous pig.
It wasn’t until she was so full she couldn’t even stand up that she lay on Qin Jue’s head with a satisfied expression.
Compared to Brilliance City, Divine Martial City was undoubtedly more prosperous. Cultivators could be seen everywhere on the streets. Even the boss of a roadside stall might be a Heaven Stage cultivator.
To be honest, this was the Sacred Land of the Central Continent that Qin Jue wanted to see. A small city like Dark Moon City was simply too boring.
“Handsome, come and play.”
Qin Jue: “???”
What was going on? Could it be that Ma Huateng had come to the Central Continent?
Soon, Qin Jue realized that he had made a mistake. In the gorgeous pavilion, several women with heavy makeup were constantly throwing flirtatious glances at him, their eyes like jackals. He didn’t need to think to know where they were.
“Young Master, would you like to come up and have some tea to enjoy the scenery?”
“Young Master, I’m very cheap.”
The women here never had the chance to see such a handsome youth. Their eyes immediately lit up, and they began to tease him one after another, resisting their urge to rush up and throw themselves at him.
Su Yan blushed and spat.
Of course, Qin Jue wasn’t going to take their offer. He wasn’t really interested.
“Let’s go over there.”
Qin Jue pointed into the distance as if he didn’t hear the women.
Su Yan nodded repeatedly and was eager to leave.
Not long after, the two of them arrived at a house. Unexpectedly, the words “Haunted House” were carved on the stone tablet outside!
Qin Jue was sure that he hadn’t misread the words. He was somewhat speechless. This was a world of cultivation. Would anyone here be afraid of ghosts?
Strictly speaking, the so-called ghosts were just ugly Essence Souls. They were not terrifying at all.
However, Qin Jue also wanted to see what this world’s haunted house looked like, so he said to Su Yan, “Let’s go in and take a look.”
Su Yan was stunned and looked hesitant.
“What is it?”
Qin Jue was puzzled. Su Yan was a Supreme Stage expert. It was impossible for her to be afraid of such a thing, right?
Moreover, he remembered that back in the Wuji Mystic Realm, Su Yan was very calm and did not seem to have a timid personality.
Su Yan shook her head and forced a smile.
Seeing this, Qin Jue didn’t think too much about it. He paid a low-grade spirit stone and then entered the haunted house with Su Yan.
After entering the haunted house, Qin Jue finally understood what was going on. It turned out that this place wasn’t decorated with props or staff members, but was instead projected using an illusion. It was somewhat similar to the illusion created by Ma Huateng, but it was more convenient to create.
The lights instantly dimmed and became incomparably pitch-black. Furthermore, a cold aura spread out. Although nothing appeared, it gave off an indescribable feeling of fear.
In the darkness, a heart-wrenching scream echoed in Qin Jue’s ears, making him shudder.
If he was an ordinary person, he would very likely be frightened, but Qin Jue was not an ordinary person.
Right at this moment, Su Yan suddenly grabbed his arm and trembled slightly.
On the other hand, Yun Xi, who was lying on Qin Jue’s head, was fearless and even full of anticipation.
“Have you never seen an Essence Soul before?”
Qin Jue tried to break free from her arm, but he found that Su Yan’s fingers were clenched tightly, unwilling to let go at all.
Su Yan said weakly, “But Essence Souls usually aren’t this terrifying.”
Qin Jue smiled bitterly. “Don’t worry, these are just illusions. There’s no need to be afraid.”
Even so, Su Yan still refused to let go. Qin Jue was helpless and could only let the woman grab his arm and walk forward.
Suddenly, a white-haired figure in white jumped out from the side. The figure opened his bloody mouth and pounced towards the two of them. One could even faintly see the maggots rolling in his mouth. They were lifelike!
Su Yan screamed and subconsciously attacked the white-robed figure that was pouncing over.
One had to know that Su Yan was now a Supreme Stage expert. Even though it was just a casual punch, the power still could not be underestimated.
As expected, in the next second, the figure in white was directly shattered by the terrifying spirit energy. Not only that, but the remaining spirit energy continued to punch through more than ten walls until it left a wide path in the haunted house.
“Don’t come over!”
Su Yan didn’t realize what she had done yet. She punched out repeatedly, and spirit energy rushed out of the Haunted House. In the blink of an eye, the black iron haunted house was turned into a hornet’s nest. If Qin Jue hadn’t stopped her, the outcome would have been even worse.
“Hey, hey, hey, stop. Are you trying to tear down this street?”
Qin Jue forcefully restrained the woman and said speechlessly.
Su Yan was stunned for a moment before she reacted. When she saw the surroundings, her face instantly flushed red.
“Sorry, I—I didn’t mean to.”
Qin Jue :”…”
Of course I know you didn’t do it on purpose. If you did, this street would have been torn down long ago.
Who would have thought that the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect, a Supreme Stage expert, would be frightened to such an extent by an illusory projection? It simply made Qin Jue not know whether to laugh or to cry.
Fortunately, the ghosts here were illusions. Otherwise, who knew how many innocent staff members would have died just now.
At that moment, the boss appeared and cried out helplessly.
“What did you guys do? Pay for the damages you did to my shop!”
The boss saw Qin Jue and Su Yan inside at a glance. It couldn’t be helped. Now that the entire haunted house was ventilated on all sides, it was hard for him not to see them.
Although the structure of this haunted house was simple, it was actually very expensive. After all, not everyone had Ma Huateng’s technology. Moreover, a device like Illusionary Time could only be refined by a Heaven Stage weapon forger.
One could only imagine how the boss felt now.
“What’s wrong? What happened here?”
The intense spirit energy fluctuations quickly attracted the imperial guards and they quickly surrounded the haunted house.
“Commander Yue, you have to uphold justice for me. These two people destroyed my shop.”
Seeing the imperial army rushing over, the boss hurriedly went forward and said with snot and tears.
Hearing this, Commander Yue frowned slightly and turned to look at Qin Jue and Su Yan. “Is that true?”
“Sorry, we didn’t do it on purpose. We’re willing to compensate.” Qin Jue explained.
“Do you know how much this haunted house…”
Before he could finish his sentence, hundreds of crystal clear high-grade spirit stones appeared in front of the boss, emitting dense spirit qi.
“Is this enough?”
Qin Jue said indifferently.
“Yes… it’s enough.”
Originally, the boss had more to say, but was speechless because Qin Jue had given him too much.
