What was happening in the outside world didn’t affect Qin Jue at all, and he wasn’t aware that someone was calling his “name” from thousands of kilometers away.
As for whether the Xuanyi Mountain Sect and the Stargate Sect were going to start a war, Qin Jue couldn’t care less. He still ate, sang, drank, and slept as usual, as if nothing had happened.
Of course, if the Stargate Sect really declared war on the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, Qin Jue wouldn’t mind casually helping the sect wipe them out.
He didn’t want to participate in the matters of the outside world, but it didn’t mean that the outside world could just bully the people around him at will. Even though his senior brother was very unreliable, he had always been very good to him since he was young, and they were like brothers.
Moreover, this was a place he had lived in for 10 years. How could he tolerate other people destroying it?
“Weird. When did I fall asleep?”
Qin Jue groggily woke up and found himself lying on the stone table in the courtyard. There were more than ten empty wine jugs lying around his feet, and he reeked of alcohol. It was obvious that he had drunk a lot last night.
Fortunately, at his level, he no longer needed to bathe because the dust could not even get close to him. He only needed to use his spirit energy to remove any impurities in his body. However, there were rarely any impurities in his body.
Soon, Qin Jue changed his clothes and walked out of the courtyard feeling refreshed. He was still holding a pot of wine in his hand, and his white clothes fluttered in the wind. If he was holding a sword, he would fully resemble the carefree and uninhibited Sword Immortal Drunk he had seen in a television series of his previous life.
Suddenly, Qin Jue stopped. He noticed that the girl called Luo Weiwei had come again.
Unfortunately, the weather was not good today, and there was no sun, so the girl did not cultivate.
“You’re awake.” After a moment’s hesitation, the girl added, “Uncle-Grandmaster.”
Hearing this, Qin Jue was slightly startled, but after thinking it over, it was right for the girl to call him Uncle-Grandmaster.
Nodding his head, Qin Jue casually asked, “There’s no sun today, so why are you here?”
“I… I came to thank Uncle… Uncle-Grandmaster Qin,” the girl said in a low voice, her tone awkward.
“Thank me?” Qin Jue was puzzled. He didn’t seem to have helped the girl before, right?
“Yes. Thank you, Uncle-Grandmaster, for letting all the new disciples be promoted to the inner sect,” said the girl seriously.
Qin Jue suddenly understood and said indifferently, “They didn’t choose to escape in the face of a life and death crisis. It was what they deserved.”
To a Martial Dao sect, nothing was more important than loyalty. Otherwise, if everyone simply ran away when they encountered danger, who would be left to fight?
That was why Qin Jue made an exception and allowed the remaining new disciples to be promoted directly to the inner sect. As for those who had chosen to run away, Qin Jue didn’t blame them. After all, they had just joined the Xuanyi Mountain Sect for less than a month. However, one thing was clear: it was absolutely impossible for them to enter the Xuanyi Mountain Sect again.
“Your cultivation seems to have increased.” Qin Jue didn’t want to be entangled in this matter, so he had changed the topic.
“That’s right. Because I hunted six low-level Yellow Stage fiend beasts, I obtained first place in this training and successfully broke through to the late-phase Yellow Stage through Spirit Energy Empowerment,” the girl explained.
Qin Jue wasn’t surprised by this. With the girl’s middle-phase Yellow Stage strength, it was very normal for her to get into the top three in the training. If it weren’t for the unforeseen event that happened midway, perhaps the girl could have hunted even more fiend beasts.
After hearing this, Qin Jue no longer paid attention to the girl. Instead, he went to the side of the blue stone by himself and poured the “weed” some more wine.
After a while, she broke the silence out of curiosity. “What are you doing?”
Qin Jue rolled his eyes. “Can’t you tell?”
“This doesn’t look like an ordinary weed.” The young girl jumped down from the blue stone and crouched beside the “weed” with Qin Jue, carefully observing.
“Of course, this is a ‘weed’ that has gained sentience. No, it’s a spirit herb now,” Qin Jue cheerfully said, as if introducing his son to others.
“It means brains.”
“I understand.” The girl nodded thoughtfully.
She had been cultivating here all along and had not noticed it.
Qin Jue: “…”
Do you really understand?
“Eh? It seems to be able to absorb spirit energy!” the girl exclaimed.
“Because I taught it the Clear Void Scripture.”
“Then can it also become a cultivator?”
“Uh… we’ll see.” Qin Jue was rather hesitant. After all, he had never encountered such a situation before.
The girl took a deep breath and said firmly, “Alright, from today onwards, I’ll take care of it!”
Qin Jue: “???”
What was going on?
Were the thoughts of all women so hard to predict?
Before Qin Jue could react, the girl had already stretched out her palm in an attempt to touch the “weed”. But at this moment, it suddenly dodged, as if unwilling to touch the girl.
The girl looked startled. “It doesn’t seem to like me.”
“Looks like it,” Qin Jue agreed.
“Fine.” The young girl retracted her hand in grievance and then solemnly vowed, “I won’t give up!”
Qin Jue: “…”
For the next few days, the young girl would come to the cliff every day to cultivate, just like before. However, the “weed” seemed to not welcome the young girl and was unwilling to let her touch it. It would even attack her, making the young girl very depressed.
On this day, the sun was shining brightly, and the blue sky was clear.
After the girl left, Qin Jue suddenly felt a bit bored, so he went to the armory and brought back a pile of materials to make a weapon.
In his previous life, the main characters in the novels basically all had their own weapon, so Qin Jue planned to make one for himself.
Qin Jue naturally looked down on ordinary weapons. Moreover, he didn’t have all that much knowledge of cold weapons, so he wouldn’t use them even if they were made.
After a period of careful consideration, Qin Jue finally decided to make a gun, one that could shoot out rapidly.
Fortunately, Qin Jue was a knowledgeable weapon fanatic in his previous life and was very familiar with the structure of many weapons. It wouldn’t be all that difficult to make those parts, not to mention that this was a highly skilled world with a lot of craftsmanship. Even if some things couldn’t be forged, they could still be made using spirit energy.
Even so, Qin Jue still underestimated the difficulty of forging a weapon. Although he used half a day to make the body of a gun, it still couldn’t shoot. Moreover, this was a high-level cultivation world, how could ordinary bullets cause any harm to cultivators?
After thinking for a while, Qin Jue found many books related to weapon forging from the Weapon Forging Pavilion and began reading them seriously.
Time flew by, and it was already late at night.
Qin Jue closed the book and revealed an expression of sudden realization. He picked up the body of the gun that had already been prepared, removed the excess parts inside, and then began to circulate his spirit energy.
In order to prevent the body of the gun from exploding, Qin Jue deliberately controlled his spirit energy carefully to avoid accidentally razing the entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect to the ground.
As Qin Jue drew with his fingers, many silver lines gradually appeared on the body of the gun. These were runes that Qin Jue had seen in weapon forging books. According to the books, runes could add to the strength of a cultivator. Moreover, the more runes there were, the more powerful they would be. At the same time, there were also different levels of runes.
Although the runes drawn by Qin Jue were only of the lowest level, they were superior in numbers and almost covered the entire body of the gun.
At a certain moment, the body of the gun seemed to have finally reached the critical point, causing a tremor. Qin Jue hurriedly stopped channeling spirit energy as the body of the gun was already covered with silver runes, making it look exceptionally cool.
