The spirit qi vortex lasted for about ten minutes before finally dissipating.
At the same time, Qin Jue could clearly sense a powerful aura appear. It had shockingly reached the Heaven Stage.
“Hahaha, I finally broke through!”
Zhang Jichen’s excited voice echoed throughout the entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
Aside from Qin Jue, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect now had two Supreme Stage experts and two Heaven Stage experts.
Although their foundation was still not as deep as the Six Great Clans, they were not inferior to any clan, and might even surpass them.
Uh, right. There was also a Tam. It was also a Heaven Stage expert.
The stone tablet shattered as Zhang Jichen broke out of the door. Spirit energy circulated around his body, and he was in high spirits. Even the two meatballs on his chest had become much smaller. He believed that it wouldn’t be long before he could slowly use his spirit energy to suppress them.
“Congratulations, Senior Brother.”
Wu Ying stepped forward and smiled.
“Congratulations, Elder Zhang.”
The other higher-ups of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect chimed in.
Although Zhang Jichen’s chest was still somewhat strange and looked very comical, no one dared to laugh.
Now that Zhang Jichen was a Heaven Stage expert, how could they dare to joke around?
“Thanks. Where’s Master?”
Zhang Jichen nodded and asked impatiently.
“He should be in the main hall.”
Wu Ying was stunned, not understanding why Zhang Jichen was in such a hurry.
Before he could finish his sentence, Zhang Jichen had already disappeared from his original spot, leaving behind a group of dumbfounded higher-ups.
“As expected of my eldest disciple. You didn’t disappoint me.”
In the main hall, Bai Ye retracted his spirit sense and said cheerfully.
At this rate, even if they didn’t rely on Qin Jue’s strength, they believed that in a few decades, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect would still become a famous large faction in the Southern Land.
If Mu Ziqi was able to advance to the Legendary Stage soon, it would even be possible for them to be ranked among the Four Major Sects.
After all, in the Southern Land, a Legendary Stage expert was enough to make up for any gap in foundation.
At that moment, Zhang Jichen suddenly rushed in and shouted, “Master, Master!”
“Mm? You’re here so soon?”
Bai Ye was surprised. He had seen Zhang Jichen retract his spirit sense after Zhang Jichen broke through, so he did not notice that Zhang Jichen was looking for him.
Shouldn’t he stabilize his cultivation first?
“Congratulations on successfully breaking through and stepping into the Heaven Stage.”
Seeing this, Bai Ye could not say anything and could only congratulate him.
Unexpectedly, Zhang Jichen acted as if he did not hear him. After looking around, he gritted his teeth and said, “Master, where’s that frog?”
Bai Ye: “???”
“The frog… you mean Tam?”
Zhang Jichen took a deep breath and continued, “I want to challenge it again to make up for my previous humiliation!”
Bai Ye was speechless.
“Are you sure?”
Zhang Jichen said firmly.
One had to know that the reason why he had chosen to enter seclusion back then was because he wanted to get stronger and avenge himself by defeating Tam after coming out.
Now that he had successfully broken through, although he had yet to stabilize his cultivation, Zhang Jichen did not think that he would lose to another frog!
Bai Ye smiled bitterly. It seemed that the incident that day had given Zhang Jichen a very deep psychological trauma. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have wanted to challenge Tam right after breaking through.
So Bai Ye shouted Tam’s name.
Not long after, Tam’s bloated figure arrived in the main hall. “Master, what’s the matter?”
“Well, he wants to challenge you again.”
Bai Ye looked at Zhang Jichen’s chest and added, “Just like last time, you’re not allowed to lick that area of his body.”
“Yes,” Tam responded like a robot.
“Hmph, I’ll definitely defeat you this time!”
Zhang Jichen’s eyes burned with flames. He wanted to repay the humiliation he had suffered back then to this perverted frog tenfold!
Under Bai Ye’s management, the man and the frog arrived outside the main hall. A cool breeze blew past, as if two peerless experts were about to fight.
“Mm? What are you doing?”
Qin Jue walked over from afar, rather puzzled.
“Oh, Jichen wants a second attempt at challenging Tam and avenge himself.”
Bai Ye casually said. Qin Jue knew what had happened before, so Bai Ye didn’t explain much.
Qin Jue nodded and said with interest, “Then it seems that Jichen will be disappointed.”
“What do you mean?”
Bai Ye couldn’t help but ask.
“He can’t defeat Tam.”
Qin Jue shrugged his shoulders.
Bai Ye was puzzled.
Although Zhang Jichen had just broken through, he was still a human and even knew how to use martial techniques.
On the other hand, besides having a Heaven Stage cultivation, Tam didn’t know how to fight at all, so even Bai Ye thought Zhang Jichen had better chances at winning.
“You’ll know later.”
Qin Jue didn’t answer Bai Ye’s question but said thoughtfully.
Bai Ye pursed his lips.
At the same time, Zhang Jichen had already taken the initiative to attack Tam.
“Devil Piercing Finger!”
As soon as the fight started, Zhang Jichen used one of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect’s Earth Stage martial techniques. His aura was like a rainbow as he stabbed towards Tam.
The reason why Zhang Jichen was so confident was because he had grasped a large number of martial techniques.
Last time, because the difference in cultivation was too great, martial techniques could not make up for it, so he lost miserably.
Now that they were both at the Heaven Stage, Zhang Jichen could be said to be full of confidence.
However, Zhang Jichen had neglected one thing.
Tam had indeed been transformed from a frog. Under normal circumstances, it was impossible for Tam to understand martial techniques.
However, it had not transformed through conventional means and had only become like this after eating the medicinal pill refined by the Wuji Saint’s Essence Soul.
Although Qin Jue had already erased the memories of the Wuji Saint, he hadn’t erased everything.
For example… The intelligence and martial techniques of the Wuji Saint were still very much intact.
Seeing that Zhang Jichen’s attack was about to hit Tam, Tam suddenly moved half a meter and easily dodged.
Zhang Jichen was stunned for a moment before he immediately chased with his other hand. He did not expect Tam to move back and dodge again.
Secret Technique: Repeated horizontal jump!
In the next second, Tam’s tongue hit Zhang Jichen’s face!
Zhang Jichen felt a wet sensation and an indescribable softness. Then, Tam’s tongue wrapped around his entire body, making him unable to move.
“Let go of me!”
A layer of spirit energy flames suddenly ignited on Zhang Jichen’s body. Under the pain, Tam had no choice but to let go of his tongue and reveal a painful expression.
Heaven Stage cultivators could already mobilize a portion of the heaven and earth spirit qi, so Zhang Jichen naturally could not be easily restrained by Tam’s tongue.
“Great Divine Might Tyrant Fist!”
Without any hesitation, Zhang Jichen punched out with a strong might.
This time, he blocked all of Tam’s escape routes. No matter how Tam dodged, it would still be hit!
What surprised Zhang Jichen was that Tam had no intention of dodging at all. It stood there blankly and faced the attack head on.
The ground shook as Tam retreated, leaving visible footprints on the ground.
Then, Zhang Jichen was shocked to discover that his fist had been sucked in by Tam’s body!
Zhang Jichen tried to pull his fist out twice, but it would not budge.
“It’s my turn now.”
Tam revealed an anthropomorphic smile. For the first time, it did not use his tongue to attack Zhang Jichen, but its arm!
In an instant, Zhang Jichen fell to the ground.
