Chapter 162: Warning
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“How dare you!”
The First Elder shouted angrily as soaring spirit energy suddenly rose from his body, firmly locking onto “Qin Jue”.
“You’re too arrogant!”
As soon as he finished speaking, a powerful spirit energy immediately swept out towards “Qin Jue”.
How could the First Elder tolerate a stranger suddenly barging in and threatening to challenge their entire clan?
The strange thing was that before the spirit energy could approach “Qin Jue”, it seemed to be mysteriously resolved and silently dissipated without raising any waves.
The First Elder’s pupils constricted. “What’s going on?”
“I don’t suppose any of you will listen to me…”
Sighing, “Qin Jue” raised his finger and pointed.
In an instant, the First Elder was sent flying like a cannonball. He directly smashed through the wall behind him, creating a thousand-foot-long crack in the ground.
Wherever he passed, everything was shattered, looking incomparably terrifying.
The First Elder spat out a mouthful of blood, his face instantly turning as pale as paper. If not for his powerful body, he would have fainted.
“Could there be an enemy attack?”
“Let’s go take a look.”
The commotion here quickly drew the attention of the other experts of the Mu Clan. It wasn’t long before over a hundred figures appeared in the surroundings, and many of them were cultivators that had already attained the Supreme Stage.
However, when they saw the scene in front of them, they all revealed expressions of disbelief.
“Am I seeing things? The one lying on the ground… seems to be the First Elder?”
“First Elder, are you alright?!”
Everyone looked at each other and hurriedly rushed up to help the First Elder up.
The First Elder spat out another mouthful of blood, his aura dispirited.
With a single strike, the First Elder, who was at the peak of the Legendary Stage, was severely injured!
Mu Gui and the other two, who had witnessed the entire process, subconsciously gulped. Their legs went weak, and they almost knelt down.
Only a Saint Stage expert could possess such power, right?
A Saint Stage expert was actually hidden in a small faction in a remote place like the Southern Land?
Was this world crazy?
One had to know that their Mu Clan had gone into seclusion here for many years, waiting for a Saint Stage expert to appear and lead them back to the Central Continent.
However, after hundreds of years, no one in their clan was able to reach the Saint Stage.
But what was going on now?
Wasn’t the strength disparity simply too great?
On the other side, the First Elder was equally shocked.
He had stayed at the peak of the Legendary Stage for many years and knew his strength very well. Although it was impossible for him to break through to the Saint Stage, the First Elder believed that he was invincible among his peers and could only be matched by the patriarch of the Archaic Mysteries Sect.
“Qin Jue” had destroyed his protective spirit energy with a single flick of his finger and had seriously injured him. Apart from him being a Saint Stage cultivator, the First Elder couldn’t think of a second reason.
No wonder Mu Gui had failed. With such an expert holding down the fort, Mu Gui had only been able to return alive because the other party had been merciful.
However, if he could be in this expert’s good graces, would he still need to worry about not being able to return to the Sacred Land of the Central Continent?
“Are you willing to listen now?”
“Qin Jue” walked out of the shattered main hall with a calm expression, completely ignoring the huge crowd of Mu Clan experts in front of him.
A higher-up of the Mu Clan was about to speak when he was interrupted by the First Elder with a wave of his hand. Then he smiled at Qin Jue and said, “I am willing, of course I am.”
The First Elder was not an idiot, so how could he not be willing? Otherwise, the entire Mu Clan would probably be razed to the ground.
If even he was severely injured by a single move, what could the other experts of the Mu Clan do by joining forces?
They would probably only be able to take two more hits…
The First Elder’s wish was to lead the Mu Clan to glory again, not to court death!
“Oh?” “Are you sure?”
Qin Jue said meaningfully.
“Senior, don’t worry. We definitely won’t go to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect again!”
The First Elder suppressed his injuries and said firmly.
Although he was very displeased in his heart, the First Elder absolutely did not dare to show it at this moment.
“Qin Jue” nodded and said, “I hope you won’t go back on your word.”
“But… if something happens to the Mu Clan, can we go and find Mu Ziqi?”
First Elder probed.
“Qin Jue” refused without hesitation. “If I see you in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, I will definitely kill you.”
How could he not tell what the First Elder was thinking?
Once he agreed, it would probably be an endless demand. Therefore, how could “Qin Jue” accept it?
After saying this, “Qin Jue” didn’t stay for long and directly flew away.
His purpose here was to warn the Mu Clan. Since they had already decided to compromise, there was no need for him to stay here any longer.
As for what would happen to the Mu Clan in the future, what did it have to do with him?
The “Qin Jue” had perfectly inherited Qin Jue’s personality and was not about to meddle in other people’s business.
He had already decided to spare Mu Gui and the others due to their relation to Mu Ziqi.
The First Elder wanted to cry but had no tears to shed. He didn’t expect “Qin Jue” to refuse so bluntly. It seemed that he had failed to get any benefits from this expert for the time being.
His plan had failed.
At the cliff behind the Xuanyi Mountain…
Qin Jue raised his head and took a sip of wine, his eyes flashing slightly. Everything that had happened over at the incarnation’s side had already appeared in his mind.
Qin Jue was rather satisfied with the way the incarnation did things. Of course, he wouldn’t directly destroy the Mu Clan like how he destroyed the other clans. After all, it was Mu Ziqi’s clan, so he just needed to give them a warning.
This was probably the best outcome.
At this time, Yun Xi flew over from the side and threw herself into Qin Jue’s arms. “I’m so hungry.”
Qin Jue :”…”
You’re already at the Earth Stage, yet you still feel hungry?
However, on second thought, he felt the same way. He smiled bitterly and said, “Alright, we’ll eat beast meat later.”
“Hehe, Master is the best.”
Yun Xi fiercely rubbed against Qin Jue like a kitten.
Just as Qin Jue was about to get up and roast the beast meat, the spirit qi between heaven and earth suddenly gathered in a direction, forming a visible vortex.
Qin Jue looked over and frowned slightly. Wasn’t this a sign of someone advancing to the Heaven Stage?
Was someone from the Xuanyi Mountain Sect about to break through again?
The spirit qi vortex lasted for about ten minutes. For a cultivator who had just advanced to the Heaven Stage, this level was already considered top-notch.
“Heavens, someone is about to advance to the Heaven Stage.”
“That seems to be the place where Elder Zhang is in seclusion!”
“I didn’t expect Elder Zhang to succeed so quickly.”
Qin Jue was stunned for a moment before he remembered Zhang Jichen, who was still in seclusion. Could it be that he was the one who was breaking through?
Strictly speaking, Zhang Jichen was indeed the cultivator who was closest to the Heaven Stage among the current higher-ups of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. It wouldn’t be strange if it was him.
However, when he thought of the two meatballs in front of Zhang Jichen’s chest, Qin Jue couldn’t help but want to laugh.
He wondered if he could “remove” those two meatballs during this breakthrough.
