With the destruction of the Sand Emperor’s body and soul, the calamity that was about to befall everyone had finally ended. The Sand Race, which had existed in the Outer Realm Desert for more than ten thousand years, had also completely disappeared from this world.
No one expected Qin Jue to be this strong.
At this moment, in the eyes of Liu Qingbai and the others, Qin Jue was no longer just a Saint Stage expert, but a Grand Saint Stage expert!
As for Qin Jue, he had planned to leave today, so he naturally wouldn’t stay for long.
Almost right after killing the Sand Emperor, he directly teleported out of the Outer Realm Desert with Yun Xi and Su Yan, leaving behind countless dazed faces outside the Desolate City.
At the same time, outside the Outer Realm Desert, the figures of Qin Jue and Su Yan silently appeared. In front of them was a field of green mountains and clear water. All kinds of strange flowers and herbs were quietly planted there, emitting a faint spirit qi, forming a sharp contrast with the endless desert behind them.
From above, it looked as if the two biomes had been forcefully severed, forming a scene of splitting.
Of course, Qin Jue didn’t go back the way he came. They were now in another direction outside the desert. It was also the route he had originally planned to take to return to the Southern Land.
“I didn’t expect this place to be like this.”
Qin Jue was rather surprised.
“Senior, there seems to be a Spirit Gathering Formation here.”
Su Yan reminded.
“Spirit Gathering Formation?”
Qin Jue was stunned. Could there be people living here?
As they were thinking, a figure suddenly flew over from the distant forest and landed in front of the two.
“Who are you? Why have you intruded into my residence?”
The person had black hair that draped over his shoulders, and his eyes emitted a green divine light. His skin was crystal clear, like the highest quality jade. He was so godlike and handsome that he could almost compare to Qin Jue.
“Is your name written here?”
Qin Jue curled his lips.
The person’s eyes twitched slightly. He didn’t expect Qin Jue to say such words and immediately said angrily, “Hmph, I’m not interested in bickering with you. You better leave quickly, or don’t blame me for being impolite!”
For some reason, Qin Jue felt that this person was somewhat familiar, as if he had seen him somewhere before, so he asked, “What’s your name?”
Hearing this, the person was stunned. What was going on? Why was this person suddenly asking for his name?
What was this guy trying to do?
After a moment of hesitation, the person said.
Although he was very angry, he felt a strong threat from Qin Jue, so he didn’t dare to rashly attack.
Hearing this word, Qin Jue’s eyes suddenly widened, revealing a startled expression. “So it’s you!”
“Do you know me?”
Chen Beixuan was at a loss. He had been cultivating here for more than ten years and had never interacted with the outside world. How could anyone recognize him?
“So you’re Chen Beixuan.”
Su Yan was equally surprised.
Su Yan knew about Chen Beixuan from the Stone Village, but she didn’t know about Chen Beixuan’s other identity.
“Who exactly are you guys?!”
Chen Beixuan hurriedly retreated and revealed a vigilant expression. A powerful spirit energy fluctuation erupted from his body, revealing his peak Supreme Stage strength!
It seemed like it would take at least a few decades for Shi Tian to take revenge.
“Don’t worry, we’re not hostile.”
Qin Jue said truthfully, “I just wanted to get to know you.”
Although he knew that Shi Tian and Chen Beixuan had a life-and-death grudge, he didn’t know what exactly happened between them as the old man had only told his side of the story. The old patriarch and Chen Beixuan were the only ones who knew what really happened.
Even if what the old man told them was true, it had nothing to do with Qin Jue.
Moreover, if he killed Chen Beixuan, who would Shi Tian seek revenge on in the future?
Chen Beixuan was skeptical. “You guys acted like you knew my name just now.”
“I’ve only heard of your name in the past. Seeing you today, you seem to live up to your reputation.”
Qin Jue sized up Chen Beixuan and smiled.
Compared to Li Qiye, Chen Beixuan was undoubtedly more handsome.
Moreover, Chen Beixuan was unlike Li Qiye, who clearly had an aura of arrogance coming from his body…
Chen Beixuan :”…”
Why did he feel like something was wrong?
“Why should I believe you?”
Chen Beixuan took a deep breath and said coldly.
“Hehe, why should I, Qin Jue, explain anything to you?”
Qin Jue said indifferently.
Before Chen Beixuan could react, Qin Jue had already passed him and entered the forest.
“Stop right there, what are you doing?!”
Chen Beixuan was furious. Just as he was about to attack, he suddenly realized that his entire body had become extremely heavy. It was as if he was shackled by chains and could not move at all.
“How could this be…”
Chen Beixuan was shocked. He had never encountered such a situation before.
“I suggest you stay put.”
After saying this, Su Yan immediately followed Qin Jue into the forest.
At this point, even if Chen Beixuan was an idiot, he knew that the other party must have used some special method to hold him in place.
The question was, how did he do it?
Chen Beixuan believed that he was invincible among his peers and could even fight a Legendary Stage expert. However, the other party was able to easily hold him in place without having made a move the entire time. Could this person be a Saint Stage expert?
Thinking of this, Chen Beixuan was secretly shocked. Could it be that a Saint Stage expert had actually heard of his name? What was going on?
Could it be that someone was using his name to cause trouble everywhere outside?
After an unknown period of time, the sky gradually darkened. The afterglow of the setting sun passed through thousands of kilometers and shone on Chen Beixuan, dying his clothes red.
Finally, the power that bound him disappeared.
Without any time to think, Chen Beixuan immediately rushed into the forest and saw a scene that made him want to cry.
On the empty grassland, Qin Jue had started a fire. He was using a Supreme Stage spirit artifact to roast a large piece of beast meat and was even humming a little tune.
If Chen Beixuan was not mistaken, that fiend beast was the “Phoenix Bird” he had kept as a pet for more than ten years!
Chen Beixuan opened his mouth but did not know what to say.
“You want to eat it too?”
Seeing Chen Beixuan staring at the roasted meat, Qin Jue said generously.
It wasn’t that Qin Jue was deliberately trying to provoke Chen Beixuan, but he really didn’t know that the fiend beast was actually Chen Beixuan’s pet.
Chen Beixuan gulped and said weakly, “Can I?”
With that, Qin Jue casually tore off a piece and threw it to Chen Beixuan.
“Thank you, Senior.”
Chen Beixuan took the roasted meat with trembling fingers and took a bite with tears in his eyes.
It would be a waste not to eat it!
One had to know that he had spent a large amount of resources to nurture this Phoenix Bird, hoping that it would one day awaken its phoenix bloodline and become his mount. Unexpectedly, because of this fellow who had suddenly barged in, it had become roasted meat!
When have I, Chen Beixuan, ever felt so aggrieved?
If it weren’t for the fact that he couldn’t beat Qin Jue, Chen Beixuan would have fought Qin Jue to the death long ago.
“Master, why is he crying as he eats? He’s just like that fiend beast from before.”
Yun Xi hugged a piece of beast meat with a mouth full of oil, full of confusion.
“I don’t know either.”
Qin Jue shrugged his shoulders and then seemed to realize something. He looked at Chen Beixuan and asked, “Could this bird be your pet?”
Chen Beixuan raised his tear-filled face and nodded heavily.
Qin Jue :”…”
Would you believe me if I said I didn’t do it on purpose?
