Chapter 153: The Tragic Bai Ye

After saying this, the two of them waved their hands and turned around to fly in different directions.
With Su Yan’s cultivation, she might have been a nobody in the Sacred Land of the Central Continent, but in the Southern Land, besides the few Legendary Stage experts, she was one of the strongest existences. She did not have to worry about any danger on the way.
However, what Qin Jue didn’t notice was that not long after he left, Su Yan suddenly stopped and looked in the direction he had gone. She took out the bronze mirror from her storage ring with a rather complicated expression.
What was wrong with her?
She had visited the magnificent Sacred Land of the Central Continent and the resources currently stored in her storage ring were also enough for her to cultivate to the Saint Stage. Anyone else would be happy with this outcome, but why was she feeling so miserable?
“Even in front of the endless mountains and rivers, the beauty in the mirror cannot be matched…”<segment 8756 ¶>
This sentence kept appearing in Su Yan’s mind and could not be dismissed.
After a long while, Su Yan faintly sighed and resisted the urge to chase after Qin Jue, her figure gradually disappearing from her original spot.
On the other hand, Qin Jue didn’t think too much about it. After bidding farewell to Su Yan, he took Yun Xi straight to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
To be honest, after being gone for more than a month, Qin Jue really missed his life in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
His last long term trip was probably when he went out for the Demon-Slaying Gathering…
However, that trip only took more than ten days.
Qin Jue didn’t stop on the way as he had gone out the same way when he left. At the very least, he did still enjoy the scenery along the way. In less than a day, he returned to the area where the Xuanyi Mountain Sect was located.
From afar, he could already see the familiar outline of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
Perhaps it was because Bai Ye had advanced to the Supreme Stage, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had clearly expanded recently. All kinds of buildings had appeared on the surrounding mountains, some of which had yet to be completed.
With Bai Ye advancing to the Supreme Stage, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect’s status in the Southern Land could be said to have soared. Although its foundation still could not be compared to the Six Great Clans, it was still a faction that was only inferior to the Six Great Clans.
Most importantly, because Bai Ye withheld any intention of attacking Brilliance City, the Six Great Clans were naturally overjoyed. They specially sent many gifts to congratulate Bai Ye on his breakthrough and tactfully left this area.
After all, as long as there weren’t any conflicting interests, everyone could be good friends.
And it wasn’t like this area was some “prized possession” anyway. If Bai Ye could do them this favor, why wouldn’t he?
“Ah, we’re finally back.”
Yun Xi lay on Qin Jue’s head, shaking her hair happily.
In the next moment, Qin Jue lightly landed on the peak of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect and walked towards the main hall in the center.
He wondered how Bai Ye was doing.
“Look, that looks like Uncle-Grandmaster!”
“Really? Wow, so handsome!”
“I heard Uncle-Grandmaster is a Heaven Stage cultivator.”
“As expected of Uncle-Grandmaster!”
Qin Jue’s appearance immediately attracted the attention of others. The cultivators who had seen Qin Jue before were especially excited and couldn’t help but exclaim.
It couldn’t be helped. Qin Jue was too handsome. Just one glance is enough to make a person remember him forever.
Qin Jue didn’t care about these discussions and was already used to them.
Soon, he arrived outside the main hall. Just as he was about to walk in, a mummy sitting in a wheelchair flew out.
The moment it saw Qin Jue, the mummy was clearly stunned for a moment.
“Who is this person? Why was he beaten up like this?”
Qin Jue was puzzled.
At this moment, the mummy suddenly shouted excitedly, “Junior Brother, you’re back!”
Qin Jue’s eyes suddenly widened. He looked at the “mummy” again and said in disbelief, “You’re Senior Brother, Bai Ye?”
The mummy nodded excitedly.
“How did you end up like this?”
Qin Jue was stunned.
Did those women really attack Bai Ye?
But with Bai Ye’s cultivation, he shouldn’t be in such a miserable state.
Hearing this, “Bai Ye” suddenly fell silent, as if he had thought of something sad. Unfortunately, Qin Jue couldn’t see his expression, or it would have been very interesting.
“Bai Ye, where are you going?”
Before Bai Ye could answer, another figure walked out of the hall. Her brows were like smoke, and her face wasn’t tainted with a trace of rouge. She wore a light colored long robe, and she seemed like a celestial maiden that had descended to the mortal world, causing her to be peerlessly gorgeous.
“Cough cough, my junior brother is back. Let me welcome him.”
Bai Ye coughed twice and sounded nervous.
It was hard to imagine that this was the once sage-like sect master of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
“So you’re Junior Brother Qin Jue.”
The woman had also noticed Qin Jue at this moment and nodded. “You look every bit as handsome as how your senior brother described you.”
Qin Jue :”…”
What was going on?
Where was Ye Yao? Where was Yan Xi?
What surprised Qin Jue the most was that this woman had actually reached the Supreme Stage!
Could it be that Bai Ye had also made promises to her?
“Junior Brother, this is a friend I made back when I was traveling with Master. Hiss…”
Before he could finish speaking, Bai Ye suddenly gasped and said with a trembling voice, “But she will soon be your sister-in-law.”
Qin Jue :”…”
“Hello, I’m Mu Ziqi, your senior brother’s Dao partner.”
Mu Ziqi smiled.
“Uh… Hello, Sister-in-law.”
Qin Jue was somewhat dumbfounded.
“Hahaha, you sure are a sweet talker. I heard from your senior brother that you went traveling. I didn’t expect you to come back at this time so I didn’t prepare anything. Take this spirit artifact as a gift.”
Mu Ziqi covered her mouth and chuckled. She immediately took out a dagger and handed it to Qin Jue.
Qin Jue focused his eyes. It was actually a Heaven Stage spirit artifact!
Although a heaven-grade spirit artifact was nothing in Qin Jue’s eyes, Heaven Stage spirit artifacts were still very precious in the Southern Land. For the woman to give it to someone she barely knew like this, it was clear that her status was extraordinary.
“Thank you, Sister-in-law.”
Qin Jue took the dagger and put it in his storage ring.
Seeing Qin Jue’s indifferent expression, Mu Ziqi was also quite surprised. This was a Heaven Stage spirit artifact that even Heaven Stage cultivators regarded as a peerless treasure, yet Qin Jue actually didn’t seem to care at all.
However, what Mu Ziqi didn’t know was that not only did Qin Jue have Supreme Stage and Legendary Stage spirit artifacts in his storage ring, but he even had a quasi-Saint artifact. So why would he be surprised to see Heaven Stage spirit artifact?
“Um… Sister-in-law, can I talk to Senior Brother in private for a moment?” Qin Jue asked.
Mu Ziqi smiled and looked at Bai Ye who was in the wheelchair. She whispered, “Don’t even think about escaping.”
Hearing this, Bai Ye couldn’t help but shudder and hurriedly said, “Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere.”
Mu Ziqi nodded in satisfaction before leaving gracefully.
After a long silence, Qin Jue asked, “Senior Brother, who is this person? What’s wrong with you?”
Bai Ye sighed. “A lot of things happened in the past month or so. Those women were crazy. They almost dismembered me.”
“That was until Mu Ziqi appeared half a month ago.”
At this point, Bai Ye trembled slightly. “She chased all those women away and then beat me up without saying a word. I am a man so I couldn’t exactly hit a woman… And that’s how I ended up like this. ”
Bai Ye wasn’t about to tell Qin Jue that he had actually fought the woman and even lost to her…
