The reason why he didn’t tell Long Zhen about the Spirit Clan back then was firstly because he couldn’t be bothered to tell him, and secondly, it was unnecessary.
Because Qin Jue felt that it wouldn’t be long before the news of the Spirit Clan being destroyed spread. With the power of the Immortal Sacred Land, it would definitely be the first to know.
It was just that Qin Jue never expected that people would link this matter to Long Zhen and put the blame on the Immortal Sacred Land.
And it was likely that Long Zhen chose not to respond because he had already guessed that it was Qin Jue’s doing. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have sent a message to ask Qin Jue.
After all, in the entire Spirit Central World, besides Long Zhen, only Qin Jue could do this.
“I knew it.”
Long Zhen quickly responded and asked.
It seemed that this Sacred Master of the Immortal Sacred Land had been waiting earnestly for Qin Jue’s reply next to his spirit tablet and didn’t care about what was going on in the outside world at all.
Although many people believed that the Immortal Sacred Land had destroyed the Spirit Clan, so what if they did? Were they going to just attack the Immortal Sacred Land and demand an explanation from the Spirit Clan?
It couldn’t be helped. Those with absolute strength could do as they pleased.
After pondering for a moment, Qin Jue decided to describe in detail how the Spirit Clan had come from the Asura World and used their Essence Souls to construct the Soul Tower, intending to open a spatial passageway to invade the Spirit Central World.
When Qin Jue destroyed the Soul Tower, he could already faintly sense the aura of another world. If the Spirit Clan had a few more days to work with, they would probably have been able to completely connect to the Asura World, allowing their army to arrive.
At that time, it would be a disaster for the entire Spirit Central World!
“What? The Spirit Clan is from another world?”
Long Zhen was very shocked. One had to know that the Spirit Clan had already occupied the Sacred Land of the Central Continent for thousands of years and had deep roots. Long Zhen now only realized that he had actually failed to discover a time bomb buried beside him.
“Yes, I only found out after searching their souls.”
“No wonder they rarely participate in any activities.”
Long Zhen had no doubts about Qin Jue’s words.
Although it was partially because they were both transmigrators from Earth and trusted each other…
The Spirit Clan was indeed the strangest of the Twelve Sacred Clans. They rarely participated in activities of the various Sacred Clans or Sacred Lands.
Even when they participated, they rarely attended activities that hosted Great Sage experts. Be it Long Zhen himself or his incarnation, he had never seen the higher-ups of the Spirit Clan.
In the past, he didn’t think much of it, but now, it had naturally become obvious why they did that.
“In that case, leave the rest to me. I’ll settle it.”
After confirming the cause and effect of this matter, Long Zhen made a decision.
No matter what, the Spirit Clan was once one of the top existences among the Twelve Sacred Clans. Even if they were invaders from another world, he had to at least give an explanation to the rest of the world.
“By the way, Brother Qin, will there be a problem with the Soul Clan?”
Long Zhen suddenly recalled that among the Twelve Sacred Clans, the Soul Clan had a very good relationship with the Spirit Clan. Once a fight broke out, the two would often join forces to deal with other factions.
Moreover, the Soul Clan far surpassed the other sacred clans in terms of their skill in using Essence Souls. If they had decided to do what the Spirit Clan did, the outcome would be too dangerous.
“I don’t think so.”
According to Qin Jue’s memories, the Spirit Clan had only befriended the Soul Clan to seek benefits.
The Spirit Clan had secretly gifted the Soul Clan many cultivation resources and heavenly treasures in order to learn from them the method of using Essence Souls as energy. Their relationship could be said to be purely based on profit and nothing else.
If the Soul Race found out that the Spirit Clan had used the Essence Soul to create a portal for an extraterrestrial army, they might even be the first to turn hostile.
“Then I’m relieved.”
Long Zhen heaved a sigh of relief.
The next day, there was some commotion in the Central Continent because the Immortal Sacred Land’s official account had posted an announcement on the Spiritnet. It was only a few hundred words, and it was very brief.
But there was a crucial piece of information: the Immortal Sacred Land had admitted that they were the ones who had destroyed the Spirit Clan!
In an instant, the entire Central Continent was in an uproar.
Since the Immortal Sacred Land could silently destroy the Spirit Clan, didn’t that mean that they could also get rid of the other Sacred Clans?
Of course, the Immortal Sacred Land gave the reason for destroying the Spirit Clan: The Spirit Clan was an invader from the Asura World. They had planned to construct a Soul Tower, open a spatial passageway, and draw in an army from another world. Their crimes were unforgivable, and their entire clan was razed to the ground.
These words were undoubtedly the most shocking.
The Spirit Clan was actually an invader from the Asura World, and they wanted to bring an army from another world?
Are you kidding me?
Hasn’t the Spirit Clan existed in the Central Continent for thousands of years?
As expected, someone immediately stepped forward to question, “The Spirit Clan is one of the Twelve Sacred Clans, so how could they be invaders from some Asura World?”
“That’s right. I think the Immortal Sacred Land is just using a random reason to justify their actions!”
“Hmph, the Immortal Sacred Land has to give us a better explanation.”
As more and more people joined in the debate on the Spiritnet, some cultivators gradually became arrogant. They actually tried to use public opinion to force the Immortal Sacred Land to give them an “explanation”.
Even the Sacred Clans were adding fuel to the fire. After all, for the Immortal Sacred Land to “destroy” the Spirit Clan for no reason was simply too shocking. How could they not be afraid?
What if the Immortal Sacred Master was unhappy one day and decided to destroy them too?
Interestingly, the other seven Sacred Lands acted as if they did not know about this from the beginning to the end and did not have the slightest intention of intervening.
Facing the doubts of the outside world, the Immortal Sacred Land quickly responded: Whoever doesn’t find our explanation convincing can come to the Immortal Sacred Land themselves. We will give the answer in person. However, if anyone continues to spread rumors on the Spiritnet, they will be recognized as enemies of the Immortal Sacred Land.
As soon as these words were spoken, the originally bustling Central Continent seemed to have been splashed with cold water and the uproar was instantly extinguished.
This was equivalent to them telling everyone: “Yeah, even if we did destroy the Spirit Clan, so what? Shut up unless you want to get beat up.”
Who dared to oppose the Immortal Sacred Land?
Even if the remaining eleven Sacred Clans joined forces, they probably wouldn’t even be enough to be the Immortal Sacred Land’s match, let alone those “anonymous” people who only dared to speak arrogantly on the Spiritnet.
Seeing this, Qin Jue didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry. As expected of a transmigrator with a main character aura, he was indeed domineering.
At this moment, Long Zhen sent a message:
“Brother Qin, I’ve been a little bored recently. I want to go over to your place to hang out for two days.”
“Uh… There isn’t anything fun here.”
“It’s okay. I just want to go out for a walk.”
Qin Jue :”…”
“Don’t worry, I will hide my cultivation well and not let anyone discover my identity.”
Qin Jue had originally thought that Long Zhen was only joking, but a few days later, early in the morning, when he got up and came to the cliff, he actually saw Long Zhen chatting with Luo Weiwei!
“Hahaha, Brother Qin, we meet again.”
Long Zhen revealed a happy expression and said happily.
At this moment, Long Zhen was dressed in black, and he seemed to be more than ten years younger than the last time they met. He was like a big brother next door. It was difficult to imagine that this was an old monster that had lived for thousands of years.
“How did you know I was here?”
Qin Jue asked subconsciously.
He didn’t seem to have told Long Zhen his exact location.
But on second thought, Qin Jue realized that with Long Zhen’s fourth realm of the Great Void Stage cultivation, Long Zhen could scan the entire Southern Land with his spirit sense. It was not strange for him to find Qin Jue so easily.
