Under Qin Jue’s orders, the cultivators guarding the branch hall began to pack their things and prepare to leave.
It was only a matter of time before the Stargate Sect and the Xuanyi Mountain Sect started fighting. It was too dangerous to continue staying here. Only by returning to the sect’s base temporarily could they ensure their safety.
Thankfully, many of the new disciples had chosen to flee in order to save their lives. Now, the six griffins could easily carry the remaining people.
Qin Jue was not worried that the fleeing new disciples would leak the cultivation techniques of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. After all, they only learned about those relevant to the Yellow Stage, which was completely useless.
The griffins flapped their wings and soared into the sky, flying towards Xuanyi Mountain.
Still sitting on the head of a griffin, Qin Jue leisurely sang:
“With an instrument in my hand, I quietly listen to the east wind on the tall spectator stand. A mouthful of turbid wine enters my throat. I continue to watch the wind and the flame float.
“The ordinary man still lingers on his mistakes. Mistakes that slowly become his internal demons. See me act upon all of my desires. No one will be able to put out my fire…”
Zhao Ruocheng and Qin Jue were riding on the same griffin. As he listened to Qin Jue singing, he couldn’t help but be intoxicated for a moment. The disdain and jealousy he had for Qin Jue had long disappeared, replaced by an indescribable feeling.
Because of what had happened earlier, the new disciples had also learned that Qin Jue was the Junior Brother of the Sect Master, their Uncle-Grandmaster, so their respect for him grew even stronger.
Especially since Qin Jue had made an exception and allowed all of them to advance to the inner sect, apart from worship and respect for him, they were also deeply grateful.
“Uncle-Grandmaster sings really well!”
“From today onwards, Uncle-Grandmaster is my Prince Charming!”
“How great would it be if I could marry Uncle-Grandmaster? I want to bear his children!”
“Wait! Are—aren’t you a man?”
Because of the Stargate Sect’s sneak attack, everyone’s mood was rather heavy, but Qin Jue’s singing had unknowingly dispelled the gloom in their hearts, causing the atmosphere to gradually become lively.
“Uncle-Grandmaster is really like an immortal in the sky. I don’t think I’ll ever get to his level.” Seeing this, Zhang Yue couldn’t help but sigh.
“As expected of Uncle-Grandmaster!” Mentor Chen sighed.
Before he finished speaking, the singing stopped. Qin Jue lay down on his back and fell into a deep sleep.
The day quickly passed. When the outline of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect appeared on the horizon, Qin Jue stretched lazily and opened his eyes.
“Hu, we’re finally here.” Qin Jue slowly stood up and said to Zhang Yue and Mentor Chen on the other griffin, “I’ll leave first. I’ll leave the rest to you.”
As he spoke, Qin Jue took a step forward, and his figure instantly disappeared in the air. No one was able to figure out exactly how he left.
Zhang Yue was already used to this and could only smile bitterly.
In the next second, Qin Jue came to the cliff of Xuanyi Mountain Sect. “Little Qing, I’m back.
“Oh, right. And you.” Qin Jue looked at the “weed” by the blue stone and smiled.
This “weed” had already grown to a height of more than thirty centimeters, and there were also more golden lines on the leaves. The entire plant now emitted a faint spirit energy that was completely different from before.
Qin Jue didn’t expect it to be able to cultivate at such a quick pace. It was worth mentioning that the spirit energy around this cliff wasn’t very rich. It was also simply inconceivable to him that a “weed” could cultivate so quickly.
“As compensation for the past few days, I’ll pour you a few more drops of spirit wine.”
Qin Jue took out a pot of spirit wine from his storage ring and carefully poured it on the “weed”.
Other people’s storage rings would be used to store spirit stones and weapons, but Qin Jue’s storage ring only contained all kinds of spirit wine and immortal wine. It was almost no different than a moving wine cellar.
For some reason, Qin Jue suddenly realized that he was playing a “pet raising” game, but the thing he raised was not a pet or a loli, but a “weed”.
As for whether it could grow into a peerless expert, Qin Jue wasn’t sure.
After absorbing the large amount of spirit energy in the wine, a change occurred in the “weed”. Another golden line appeared on its emerald-green leaves, and its spirit energy became even richer. Qin Jue could even smell a nice fragrance.
Then the “weed” waved its leaves and wrapped around Qin Jue’s thigh as if it was acting cute.
“Hahaha, little fellow, cultivate properly.”
Qin Jue leaned against the blue stone and drank a mouthful of wine, relaxed and content.
At the same time, a thousand kilometers away, those lucky escapees from the Stargate Sect had already returned to the sect.
As the name suggested, the Stargate Sect was related to the stars.
Besides cultivation techniques, many buildings here were set up according to the Grand Astral Formation, and they were like stars that covered the sky and possessed unfathomable variations. Unfortunately, the main hall had been leveled by a meteorite not long ago and transformed into ruins, causing the overall beauty to be destroyed.
At this moment, in a side hall, more than a dozen injured Stargate cultivators were kneeling on the ground, drenched in sweat, not even daring to raise their heads.
“What happened to you all?!”
Standing in front of them was an old man in a black starred robe. His eyes were sunken, and he had a goatee, making him look rather sinister.
His name was Sun Ting, and he was the Law Enforcement Elder of the Stargate Sect. He was the one who had planned the sneak attack on the Xuanyi Mountain Sect branch hall.
They had sent out over a hundred Profound Stage cultivators and had even requested the powerful Wei Clan’s help, only to end up with more than a dozen people returning. One could easily imagine how terrible Sun Ting must be feeling at the moment.
“Elder… Elder, the other party is simply too powerful. We were no match for him at all…” one of the cultivators said with difficulty, his voice filled with fear.
“Where’s Elder Wei?” Sun Ting’s eyes narrowed as he questioned.
Compared to these Stargate cultivators, Sun Ting was most concerned about Elder Wei. After all, the other party was from the Wei Clan. If anything were to happen to him, he would also suffer.
“He’s dead,” the cultivator said bitterly.
“What?!” Sun Ting’s eyes widened, thinking that he had misheard.
“Elder Wei is dead.” The cultivator could only bite the bullet and repeat.
“Bullshit!” Sun Ting roared. “How is this possible? How could Elder Wei die?!”
According to the information he obtained, there was only a single Earth Stage expert, Elder Wu Ying, leading the new disciples of Xuanyi Mountain Sect this time, so how could Elder Wei have possibly died?
Moreover, Elder Wei had brought his Abyssal White Tiger with him.
These cultivators were already injured, and after being struck by Sun Ting’s spirit pressure, they immediately spat out a mouthful of blood and flew backwards. Some of the weaker ones couldn’t withstand the pressure and directly fainted.
A cultivator wiped the blood from the corner of his mouth and said through gritted teeth, “Elder, we saw with our own eyes that Elder Wei and his mount were killed by a punch.”
“That’s right, that’s right.” The other cultivators nodded repeatedly.
“Who?! Who killed him?!” Sun Ting was furious. It even took him a while to reluctantly accept this fact.
“That’s right. It’s a guy named Tyrant Daddy. And he’s young.”
“Is there even anyone by that name in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect?” Sun Ting fell into deep thought. If there were someone who could kill Elder Wei and the Abyssal White Tiger with a single punch in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, he would at least be a Heaven Stage expert, and it was impossible for Sun Ting not to know about him.
Could it be that… the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had been hiding its strength all along?
Thinking of this, Sun Ting became even more certain. He immediately rushed out of the side hall and flew towards the place where the Sect Master was recuperating.
