Outside the Black Forest, the atmosphere was exceptionally tense. Everyone held their breaths as they watched the two people on the field.
One was a young man with a tall and slender figure.
The other was a tall and muscular man.
Elder Wei, who was laughing at the sky, suddenly stopped. He said in fear, “Wh—what do you want?”
After personally witnessing Qin Jue insta-killing the Abyssal White Tiger, even if Elder Wei was an idiot, he would know that he was absolutely not Qin Jue’s match.
Since Qin Jue could kill the Abyssal White Tiger with one punch, then he could undoubtedly kill him with one punch too!
Although Elder Wei was very unwilling to admit it, Qin Jue was very likely a Heaven Stage expert!
“To send you to see that beast,” Qin Jue said matter-of-factly.
After saying those words, he slowly raised his fist.
“No! You can’t kill me!” Elder Wei suddenly shouted. He no longer had his previous high and mighty appearance.
At this point, nothing was more important than life, especially for someone like Elder Wei who came from an extraordinary background.
“Oh? Why?” Qin Jue asked with interest.
“I—I’m from the Wei Clan. If you kill me, then the Wei Clan will absolutely not let you off!” Elder Wei took a deep breath and moved out of the backstage.
“Wei Clan? Who are they??” Qin Jue looked confused.
Apart from the four major sects and the Stargate Sect, Qin Jue knew very little about the other Martial Dao factions, much less the Wei Clan.
However, from Elder Wei’s tone, it seemed that he didn’t belong to the Stargate Sect. This couldn’t help but remind Qin Jue of those novels in his previous life where the stronger ones would come to avenge the weaker ones but would also ultimately be killed. This would continue on until the whole clan was finally wiped out. From the looks of it, the Wei Family seemed to be developing in this direction.
At this time, Zhang Yue, who was confronting Wang Qingfeng, seemed to have thought of something, and his expression changed drastically. “Wei Clan? Could it be the Wei Clan that can control fiend beasts?”
Recalling the scene of Elder Wei riding the Abyssal White Tiger, Zhang Yue hurriedly shouted, “Uncle-Grandmaster, you can’t kill him! He’s a member of the Wei Clan of Brilliance City!”
Zhang Yue finally understood why the Stargate Sect would suddenly have an elder capable of controlling fiend beasts. It turned out that he was from the Wei Clan of Brilliance City!
“Brilliance City? Wei Clan?” Qin Jue frowned slightly, his face still blank.
“Hahaha, did you hear that? You can’t kill me. Otherwise, the entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect will be buried with me!” Elder Wei smiled triumphantly. One might even think that he had the upper hand.
“So what if it’s the Wei Clan?” Qin Jue curled his lips and said no more. His fist soon followed.
There was a sudden clap of thunder, and before Elder Wei could react, the terrifying fist wind had already engulfed him.
“No!” At the moment of death, Elder Wei cried out in despair. He had never imagined that Qin Jue would actually dare to kill him!
The fist wind left behind a hundred-meter-long trail on the ground that extended all the way to the Black Forest. As for Elder Wei, he had long since turned into a bloody mist and drifted away. He was deader than dead.
Another one-hit kill!
It was unknown who shouted this, but all the Stargate Sect cultivators immediately broke into a mad sprint. Even the Earth Stage Elder Wei and the Abyssal White Tiger had been killed. If they stayed behind, wouldn’t they be courting death?
“How did this happen?” Wang Qingfeng found this hard to accept. They had planned for several months and even asked the Wei Clan to help them launch a sneak attack, but it was actually destroyed by a single person?
Beside him, Zhang Yue’s eyes flickered. He immediately seized the opportunity to slash at Wang Qingfeng’s chest.
“Ah!” Caught off guard, Wang Qingfeng was struck directly, a bloody wound splitting open on his chest, and even his internal organs almost flowed out.
“You!” Wang Qingfeng endured the intense pain and still tried to escape.
However, how could Zhang Yue let him off? He immediately followed up with an attack without any hesitation.
Wang Qingfeng, who was already injured, was in no mood to continue fighting. He was quickly heavily injured by Zhang Yue and fell to the ground.
Wang Qingfeng raised his hand and said, “Wait, wait. Don’t you remember? I even treated you to a meal.”
Before he could finish his sentence, Wang Qingfeng’s head flew high and landed a few meters away.
Not only Zhang Yue, but even the other branch cultivators were chasing after the Stargate Sect cultivators. Qin Jue had already killed many of the Stargate Sect cultivators, so the gap between the two sides was basically closed. Now that they were in high spirits, why would they show mercy?
In the end, out of the scores of Stargate cultivators, only a dozen or so had managed to escape. Even for the Stargate Sect, this result could only be considered a heavy loss.
After killing the Abyssal White Tiger and Elder Wei, Qin Jue sat in the square and continued to drink as if nothing had happened. He didn’t need to care about what would happen next.
As for those new disciples who didn’t choose to run away, they all looked at Qin Jue with reverence and worship in their eyes. Some even wanted to rush up to him and ask for his autograph.
It couldn’t be helped. He was handsome and powerful. Even a man would be tempted.
“It’s all thanks to Uncle-Grandmaster this time around. Otherwise, I’m afraid that we would definitely have died.” Zhang Yue bowed respectfully.
If Zhang Yue respected him before because of Qin Jue’s identity, then now, it was completely from the bottom of his heart.
In the Spirit Central World, only the strong were worthy of respect.
“But…” Zhang Yue hesitated.
“Speak,” Qin Jue took a sip of wine and said indifferently.
“The Wei Clan might take revenge on us.”
“Oh?” Qin Jue raised his eyebrows and said meaningfully, “Just what is this Wei Clan?”
It didn’t take long for Qin Jue to learn from Zhang Yue that the Wei Clan were the masters of Brilliance City that was thousands of kilometers away. They were one of the seven great clans and had great strength. It was even rumored that they had a Supreme Stage-realm expert overseeing them.
Moreover, the cultivation methods they practiced were extremely special, and they could sign contracts with fiend beasts. Thus, almost every Wei Clan cultivator had their own fiend beast mount.
Now that Qin Jue had killed a member of the Wei Clan, they would definitely not let the matter rest so easily. And with the current strength of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, it was simply impossible for them to contend with the Wei Clan.
“I see.” Qin Jue nodded and then said indifferently, “In any case, they have already joined forces with the Stargate Sect to deal with my Xuanyi Mountain Sect. So what if they take revenge?”
According to Qin Jue’s many years of reading novels in his previous life, the Wei Clan would have definitely joined the battle anyway. It was just that there was now a legitimate reason for them to do so.
Hearing this, Zhang Yue was stunned for a moment before coming to a realization.
That’s right. Elder Wei had already joined forces with the Stargate Sect to launch a sneak attack on the Xuanyi Mountain Sect branch hall, and he even said that he wanted to destroy the entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Would the Wei Clan have let the matter rest so easily even if Qin Jue hadn’t killed him?
“I was being too naive,” Zhang Yue said with a bitter smile. He could not help but change his opinion of this young man.
Although Qin Jue always looked indifferent, everything seemed to be under his control. This feeling was simply too terrifying.
After pondering for a moment, Qin Jue commanded, “Pass down the order. Have all the cultivators from the branch hall pack up and set off for the Xuanyi Mountain Sect today.”
“Return to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect?” Zhang Yue was stunned and did not understand.
“If we don’t return to Xuanyi Mountain Sect, are we supposed to wait here for the Stargate Sect to attack again? I don’t have that kind of time.” Qin Jue rolled his eyes speechlessly.
“Uh… that’s true.” Zhang Yue rubbed his hands awkwardly.
“In addition, these new disciples who did not run away, regardless of their potential, should all be promoted to the inner sect.”
