Finally, under the mediation of the “spirit stones”, the two sides reached a compromise. However, Commander Yue’s expression as he looked at Qin Jue was somewhat strange. After all, taking out several hundred high-grade spirit stones at once was something even a Heaven Stage cultivator couldn’t do.
And with Qin Jue’s age, he didn’t look like a Supreme Stage expert at all.
Qin Jue didn’t care about this at all. Those high-grade spirit stones were all plundered from the Spirit Clan. He could have as many as he wanted, so why would his heart ache?
However, he planned to bring the rest back and hand them to Bai Ye. Perhaps it could increase the combat strength of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect by a level in a short period of time.
“Hehe, Young Master, take care. Come back next time if you have the time.”
The boss said with a smile, not looking angry at all.
Trading a haunted house for hundreds of high-grade spirit stones could be said to be a sure win. The boss was overjoyed, so why would he be angry?
“Senior, it’s all my fault. I made you lose so many spirit stones.”
Su Yan lowered her head with a guilty expression. She was completely different from the previously proud holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect.
She was now a burden. Not only was she unable to help, but she was causing Qin Jue troubles. Even she felt a little embarrassed.
Qin Jue smiled helplessly. He remembered that the first time he saw Su Yan, she was a cold beauty that gave people a feeling of being difficult to approach. Now, her expression was like that of a little girl who had done something wrong, very cute.
Unfortunately, she was wearing a mask, so he could not see her beautiful face.
Thinking like this, Qin Jue teased, “In that case, as compensation, why don’t you marry me?”
Su Yan was stunned for a moment before her face instantly flushed to the tips of her ears. White smoke even rose from the top of her head like a steam engine.
“I-I… I’m not ready…”
Su Yan spoke incoherently, her voice so soft that it was almost inaudible.
“Master, I’m hungry again.”
At this moment, Yun Xi suddenly pulled Qin Jue’s hair and interrupted the two.
“Uh… are you a pig?”
Qin Jue couldn’t help but roll his eyes. Ever since Yun Xi transformed, she seemed to be either eating or drinking. She was simply a bottomless pit. If one didn’t know better, they would think that she was a pig fiend in human form.
“Idiot, I’m not a pig!”
Yun Xi pursed her lips and unhappily stepped on Qin Jue’s head twice. She should be the first and only living being in this world who could step on Qin Jue’s head.
“Fine, fine, fine. You’re not a pig.”
Qin Jue was speechless and could only take Yun Xi to buy something to eat.
At the same time, Su Yan heaved a sigh of relief. However, her face was still flushed red. If it weren’t for the mask, she probably wouldn’t even dare to raise her head.
In the next half a day, the two of them and the “weed” almost walked through all of the prosperous area of Divine Martial City. At the same time, they also saw the huge imperial palace in the middle.
Compared to Earth, the imperial palace here was almost no different from an immortal palace. The city walls were thousands of feet tall, and they were refined with special stone materials. Coupled with the augmentation of various runes, even Supreme Stage experts would find it difficult to break through.
Not only that, there were also many buildings floating in the air. They were faintly connected together to form an indestructible formation.
In Qin Jue’s field of vision, he could tell that there were at least three Legendary Stage experts in this palace. If such a force was placed in the Southern Land, it would be enough to surpass the Three Major Sects!
Time flew by, and in the blink of an eye, it was evening. Qin Jue had Yun Xi above his head, and Su Yan was beside him. His shadow was endlessly lengthened by the sunset. He leisurely walked on the street, looking exceptionally warm.
For some reason, Su Yan suddenly thought of how nice it would be if she could continue to live like this.
Stomp stomp stomp!
Suddenly, a series of noisy footsteps broke the silence and a group of men appeared at the end of the street corner. It was a group of armored imperial army soldiers. The leader was Commander Yue, whom Qin Jue had seen earlier today.
In front of them, a man in black was running at full speed. His speed was incomparably fast, and one could only faintly see an afterimage. It was impossible to tell if the person was male or female.
“Stop right there!”
“You can’t escape!”
Commander Yue shouted angrily as he chased after the man at full speed. He looked like he wanted to tear the man in black apart.
The surrounding pedestrians saw this and scattered, afraid of being affected.
“Hahahaha, idiot, you can’t catch me, right? It can’t be helped. I’m just that powerful.”
The man in black smiled proudly.
“You’re courting death!”
Commander Yue was unable to restrain his anger as he controlled his spirit sword to stab at the black-robed man. However, the black-robed man quickly dodged to the side and easily evaded it. After that, he did not forget to mock, “Idiot, you think you can get me from behind?”
As soon as he finished speaking, the black clothed figure’s speed rose once more. It seemed like he was toying with Commander Yue.
Suddenly, the man in black realized that there seemed to be two figures standing in front of him. One of them seemed to be a woman. “Hehe, are you too afraid to run?”
The black-robed man could not be bothered with them and planned to rush over directly. With his current speed and physical strength, even a mountain wouldn’t be able to stop him, let alone two people.
Finally, the man in black collided with one of the two people standing in his way. Immediately after, everyone saw the man in black fly backwards at an even faster speed!
Before the pitiful Commander Yue could react, he was hit by the black-robed man. Then, the two of them slid more than ten meters away from the ground before coming to a stop.
Commander Yue drew a cold breath and felt intense pain coming from his entire body. He almost fainted from the pain.
“Commander Yue! Are you alright?” The imperial guards were shocked.
Commander Yue :”…”
Bastard, do I look like I’m fine?
“Hurry up and get this person off me!”
“Eh? Commander Yue, he seems to have fainted.”
Only at this moment did everyone realize that the black-robed man was actually spitting out blood. His aura was dispirited, and half of his body had even been twisted and deformed. If not for his Heaven Stage cultivation, he would probably have already died.
Commander Yue took a deep breath and only recovered after a long while. He frowned.
“Those two probably helped us.”
The nearby imperial army soldier pointed at Qin Jue and Su Yan not far away.
“It’s you guys?”
Commander Yue was slightly stunned when he saw the two of them.
Qin Jue :”…”
Can I say that this has nothing to do with me?
Qin Jue didn’t expect this man in black to be so stubborn. He was still deciding whether or not to move before the man in black actually bumped into him.
It had to be known that besides Qin Jue’s invincible physical body, he also had an repelling ability. Fortunately, the black-robed man did not knock into him at full speed. If his strength had been any greater, he would have been directly killed by the shock.
“Thank you for helping us capture this thief, Senior.”
Commander Yue cupped his fists. Although he was very unlucky to have become the black-robed man’s cushion for impact, if it weren’t for Qin Jue, the black-robed man might have already escaped.
Previously, when Qin Jue took out several hundred high-grade spirit stones at once, Commander Yue had already felt that the other party was not simple, but he wasn’t sure then. Now, he was basically certain.
Qin Jue :”…”
It seemed that somehow he had done a good deed again?
