“Master, why is it crying?”
Yun Xi tilted her head, not understanding why Lei Long was crying.
Shouldn’t eating be a happy thing?
“Maybe it’s crying because it’s so delicious.”
Qin Jue explained seriously.
Yun Xi frowned slightly, then took a bite of the beast meat. She was immediately even more puzzled. “How come I’m not crying?”
Qin Jue :”…”
Why didn’t he realize in the past that Yun Xi actually possessed such a sharp ability to retort?
“It’s because… you’ve eaten too much good food, so you’re already used to it.”
Qin Jue could only continue to explain.
“Oh, I understand.”
Yun Xi came to a sudden understanding.
Qin Jue :”…”
What did you understand?
“Wuwuwu, I’ll remember you forever.”
Lei Long cried as it ate the beast meat, looking exceptionally comical.
Not long after, Qin Jue and the others were all full. They lay on the ground not far away and slept, relaxed and content.
Seeing this, Lei Long originally wanted to take the opportunity to launch a sneak attack. However, after hesitating for a long time, it finally chose to give up.
Its intuition told it that even a sneak attack would be useless, and it might even lose its life.
Lei Long had always been cautious, so it was unwilling to take the risk.
Right at this moment, a large bird flew over from above, raising hurricanes, afraid that others would not be able to see it.
“Mm? Why did this guy come out?”
Lei Long’s expression changed drastically, and its body trembled slightly.
As a thunder beast, Lei Long possessed extremely powerful defense and attack power. It was rarely matched by fiend beasts of the same level, but it was naturally afraid of the Hell Bird, the huge bird above its head.
This was because the Hell Bird was one of the few divine beast descendants. It could ignore any physical defense and cause destructive damage to its target.
In a sense, the Hell Bird was the natural predator of thunder beasts!
Even at the same level, Lei Long was still far from being a match for it, let alone a Legendary Stage Hell Bird.
At the same time that Lei Long discovered the Hell Bird, it also noticed Lei Long. Its amber eyes looked at Lei Long like a hunter that had locked onto its prey. It instantly froze Lei Long in place.
Lei Long had a look of despair. It had survived the hands of those two humans with great difficulty. Could it be that it was going to die for no reason?
The Hell Bird let out a long roar that echoed for hundreds of kilometers. It went through some obstacles before finally rushing towards Lei Long.
Qin Jue, who was sleeping, frowned and punched impatiently without even opening his eyes.
The golden current crushed over like a wave, instantly submerging the Hell Bird. Even heaven and earth dimmed at this moment.
The pitiful Hell Bird didn’t even have the chance to struggle before it completely disappeared from the world.
Lei Long was puzzled.
Did Qin Jue just casually kill a Legendary Stage Hell Bird with a single punch?
Am I dreaming?
Seeing a feather fall from the sky, Lei Long raised its claw to rub its eyes. It was finally convinced that it was not dreaming.
Lei Long couldn’t help but shudder again. It was suddenly glad that it didn’t try to sneak attack Qin Jue while he was sleeping. Otherwise, it probably wouldn’t even know how it died.
“This human must be a Saint Stage expert.”
Lei Long shivered and lay in a corner, not daring to think anymore.
To a fiend beast like Lei Long who lingered in the middle of the Demon Beast Mountain Range, the Saint Stage was simply an unparalleled existence.
This was especially true because there had always been a bloodline suppression between fiend beasts. Moreover, Saint Stage cultivators could already manipulate bloodlines. There was no need for them to attack. They could only use their bloodline suppression to instantly kill low-level fiend beasts.
After an unknown period of time, Qin Jue faintly woke up. It was already evening. The afterglow of the setting sun passed through thousands of kilometers and fell on Qin Jue, illuminating this incomparably handsome Uncle-Grandmaster like an immortal. For a moment, even Lei Long was dumbfounded.
“Ha, it’s almost time to sleep.”
Qin Jue took out a pot of spirit wine and lazily said.
Su Yan had also ended her cultivation and slowly stood up.
A loud bang suddenly sounded from afar, and the entire ground shook.
Qin Jue frowned slightly, picked up Yun Xi beside him, and put her on his head before flying towards the direction of the loud bang. Su Yan followed closely behind.
Lei Long hesitated for a moment, not knowing if it should follow. But to be safe, it still followed carefully.
On the empty ground, a youth was skillfully tying a dead fiend beast with vines. Then, he carried it on his shoulder and walked forward step by step.
The youth’s speed was not fast, but he was abnormally calm. He was constantly on guard against sneak attacks from fiend beasts.
If one looked carefully, they would discover that the one being carried by the youth was a Heaven Stage fiend beast.
In the distance, Qin Jue floated in the air and said in surprise, “There are actually other humans here?”
The Demonic Beast Mountain Range could basically be said to be the territory of fiend beasts, and it was countless times more terrifying than the Death Spirit Valley in the Southern Land. Why was this youth, who looked to be only around the Heaven Stage, wandering here?
Hearing this, Lei Long knew that its chance had come. It hurriedly stepped forward and explained, “He should be a cultivator from Stone Village.”
Qin Jue was puzzled.
“Yes, the only human village in the Demonic Beast Mountain Range. There is a stone tablet outside their village that can prevent high-level fiend beasts from approaching. Even I can’t enter.”
Lei Long said eagerly, “I’ve encountered this human a few times in the past. He was very cunning and stole many of my spirit fruits. He was lucky to escape every time.”
After hearing Lei Long’s description, Qin Jue fell into deep thought. This plot… seemed very familiar!
He had just gotten rid of one protagonist, and now another protagonist was coming?
What was this? The Avengers?
However, Qin Jue was still quite curious about this Stone Village.
“Alright, you can go back now.”
Qin Jue waved his hand.
Lei Long was stunned and didn’t dare to disobey. It could only quietly retreat. At the same time, it had already made a decision in its heart. No matter what happened in the future, it absolutely couldn’t lay a finger on the Stone Village. If it provoked Qin Jue because of this, wouldn’t it be dead meat?
After Lei Long left, Qin Jue lightly landed on the ground, blocking the youth’s path.
“Who are you?”
Facing the sudden appearance of Qin Jue, the youth was first stunned, but then the muscles in his entire body instantly tensed, as if he would attack at any moment.
Before he could finish his sentence, Su Yan flew over as well. The youth immediately became even more vigilant.
“Friend, we got lost by accident. We don’t know if there’s a place to stay. Do you know where we can rest for the night?”
Qin Jue took a sip of wine and said indifferently.
The young man nodded, but he did not immediately lower his guard. Instead, he said hesitantly, “Then come with me.”
Qin Jue changed the topic and asked, “By the way, may I know your name?”
