No one expected that Li Qiye would actually rely on his own strength to suppress two Legendary Stage experts.
It was only at this moment that the crowd realized that they had greatly underestimated Li Qiye.
With such talent, if he were to mature in time, not to mention the Saint Stage, he might even reach the Grand Saint Stage!
One had to know that in the current Spirit Central World, besides the Eight Great Sacred Lands, Grand Saint Stage experts were the top existences no matter where they went.
They could even crush a Saint Stage Clan like the Gu Clan with a single finger.
The black-robed elder’s eyes darkened.
This kid must die!
On the other side, witnessing this scene, Qin Jue’s face darkened.
Forget it, this had nothing to do with him. He should leave quickly.
In any case, all protagonists had an immortal halo that could keep them safe. He did not need to worry.
Thinking like this, Qin Jue whispered to Su Yan, “Let’s go.”
Su Yan was stunned. She didn’t expect Qin Jue to leave at this time, but she quickly reacted and nodded.
Therefore, in this tense moment, Qin Jue and Su Yan slowly rose into the sky as if no one was around, and flew out of the Hundred Spirit Island.
“You want to leave? It won’t be that easy.”
Right at this moment, a cold laugh suddenly sounded from the stream of light that had ambushed Li Qiye.
Spirit energy flashed and slashed towards Qin Jue and Su Yan like a blade.
Li Qiye’s eyes narrowed as he jumped towards Qin Jue.
“A good opportunity!”
The black-robed old man was overjoyed. He immediately condensed his spirit energy and shot it out.
Unexpectedly, Li Qiye did not choose to dodge but forcefully endured it!
Spitting out a mouthful of blood, Li Qiye didn’t even look at the black-robed old man and instantly went in front of Qin Jue to block.
Li Qiye’s tongue emitted spring thunder that shook the heavens and the earth. The Nine Netherworld Fire instantly transformed into a roaring dragon that devoured the spirit energy and disappeared.
Li Qiye spat out another mouthful of blood as his aura plummeted. He was clearly injured badly.
“Mr. Qin, are you alright?”
Li Qiye endured the intense pain and turned around.
Qin Jue :”…”
What was this guy doing?
Hero saving the beauty?
Wait… no, I’m a man.
Was this guy interested in men?
After a long silence, Qin Jue sighed.
To be honest, Qin Jue was quite touched that Li Qiye was willing to get injured to help him, but… there was no need for that!
“It’s good that you’re fine.”
Li Qiye heaved a sigh of relief. “Sorry, Mr. Qin. It was my fault for implicating you in this matter.”
Li Qiye said this sincerely and apologetically.
Qin Jue :”…”
Facing such a “pure” Li Qiye, Qin Jue actually felt somewhat embarrassed for a moment.
In comparison, Ye Liangchen, the youth from the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, did not resemble a main character at all.
“Hahaha, Li Qiye, you’re dead meat!”
The black-robed elder laughed wantonly, feeling rather smug.
He never expected that Li Qiye would be willing to take his attack head-on just to save two insignificant fellows.
No matter how strong Li Qiye was, after being severely injured, he believed that it was impossible for him to contend against the two Legendary Stage experts anymore.
In the sky, the streams of light dissipated, revealing the figure inside. He looked about the same age as the black-robed elder, but his cultivation was even deeper than the black-robed elder’s.
“Li Qiye, I’ll give you one more chance. Surrender to my Gu Clan. Otherwise, you must die.”
The old man named Gu Yao said in an unquestionable tone.
“Hehe, stop dreaming.”
Li Qiye sneered. “Don’t think that you can defeat me just like that.”
Before he could finish his sentence, Li Qiye’s originally weak aura actually rose steadily and reached its peak again. Clearly, he had used some kind of secret technique.
Gu Yao snorted and was about to attack when Qin Jue suddenly stretched out his hand to stop Li Qiye and faintly said, “That’s enough, leave these two guys to me.”
Li Qiye was dumbfounded.
“Hai, I guess I’m unlucky.”
Qin Jue sighed, rather depressed.
Originally, Qin Jue didn’t want to get involved, but now, not only was Li Qiye seriously injured, but he was even forced to use a secret technique. If Qin Jue continued to ignore them, it would be a little unreasonable.
Li Qiye opened his mouth, wanting to say something, but in the end, he tactfully shut his mouth. His intuition told him that Qin Jue was very strong.
This was certain from the first time he saw Qin Jue. Otherwise, Li Qiye wouldn’t have invited him to the banquet.
As for how strong he was, Li Qiye wasn’t sure.
The reason why he had helped Qin Jue block the attack, however, was actually completely because he had acted reflexively. This was also Li Qiye’s usual style of doing things. Otherwise, how could he have made so many friends?
“Who are you?”
Gu Yao frowned and said coldly, “I suggest you stay out of this.”
“Stay out of this?”
Qin Jue rolled his eyes speechlessly. “You were just attacking me, and now you’re asking me to stay out of this?”
Gu Yao :”…”
“Alright, let’s end this quickly. I want to sleep soon.”
Qin Jue yawned and said boredly.
If it weren’t for Yun Xi, he wouldn’t have participated in this banquet.
“Since you’re courting death, I’ll fulfill your wish.”
Gu Yao didn’t continue talking nonsense. He raised his hand and directly waved a strand of spirit energy towards Qin Jue.
The strange thing was that before the spirit energy could approach Qin Jue, it hit an invisible wall and dissipated into thin air, leaving nothing behind.
Gu Yao revealed an incredulous expression.
In the next moment, Qin Jue’s fist also fell.
This punch looked ordinary and did not even cause any ripples. However, at this moment, Gu Yao’s vision only contained that white, flawless, and well-defined fist. It was like a call from hell!
In an instant, thunder seemed to flash in the horizon, illuminating the Hundred Spirit Island in a tragic light. Even space showed signs of distortion and collapse.
Under the terrifying fist wind, Gu Yao was like a small boat in a storm. He was unable to resist and was instantly submerged.
After an unknown period of time, perhaps a second, perhaps a quarter of an hour, everyone finally recovered, but Gu Yao had already disappeared.
“Where’s that Legendary Stage expert from the Gu Clan?”
After a while, someone rubbed his eyes and said in astonishment.
“I think… he’s dead?”
Another person gulped and said bitterly.
As soon as these words were spoken, all the cultivators present subconsciously spread out their spirit senses in an attempt to find Gu Yao’s aura.
However… They couldn’t find anything.
There was nothing.
Not to mention his aura, not even a strand of his hair remained.
Silence fell again.
At this point, even an idiot would know that Gu Yao was dead.
The question was, how did he die?
Just because of that ordinary punch?
Are you kidding me?
Gu Yao :”…”
The black-robed elder called out, but there was no response.
Then, under the black-robed old man’s frightened gaze, Qin Jue punched him.
