Chapter 171: Stargate Secret Treasure

A gust of wind blew, and the grass swayed. Everything was silent.
The outside of the city that was originally filled with a large number of fiend beasts seemed abnormally empty at this moment. Not even scraps were left behind.
The strange thing was that there were no signs of destruction on the ground. Those fiend beasts seemed to have disappeared into thin air, as if they had never existed.
Apart from Long Zhen who remained calm and collected, everyone was dumbfounded. They could hardly believe their eyes.
Everyone was puzzled.
Was it an illusion?
Especially the other Earth Stage expert of the Yu Clan, his eyes almost popped out.
He couldn’t even tell what Qin Jue had done. The fiend beasts that matched their entire clan’s strength were gone just like that.
Even a Heaven Stage expert wouldn’t be that powerful, right?
Could it be that this youth in front of him was a Supreme Stage expert?
Are you kidding me?
Without waiting for this higher-up to figure it out, Qin Jue clapped his hands and said casually, “Alright, it’s over.”
“What?” “So soon?”
Yu Canghai, who was “unconscious”, suddenly opened his eyes in shock.
“Oh, is Patriarch Yu alright now?” Qin Jue said with a faint smile, as if he wasn’t surprised that Yu Canghai had suddenly woken up.
Hearing this, Yu Canghai recalled that he had “fainted” just now.
This was awkward.
Because he was afraid of being discovered, he did not dare to use his spirit sense to spy on his surroundings. At the moment, he was unaware of what was going on.
In addition, it was simply too quiet just now, so Yu Canghai was very nervous, so after hearing Qin Jue’s words, he directly couldn’t help but “wake up”.
“Cough cough, thank you for your concern, Senior. I just exhausted too much spirit energy and accidentally fainted. Now that my spirit energy has recovered a little, I’m fine again.”
Helpless, Yu Canghai could only brace himself and casually make up an excuse.
Qin Jue :”…”
He could even smooth things over like this. He was truly impressive. It was simply too wasteful for him to be the master of a small Yu Clan.
“Right, where are those fiend beasts?”
Yu Canghai got up from the ground and pretended to be dumbfounded.
“Patriarch, those fiend beasts have all been wiped out by this senior.”
The higher-ups of the Yu Clan smiled bitterly.
Yu Canghai was stunned. Weren’t there three Earth Stage fiend beasts? Why was it that after lying down for less than a minute, all the fiend beasts were gone?
Originally, he thought that Qin Jue was at the Heaven Stage at most, but now it didn’t seem to be as simple as he imagined.
Should they continue on with the plan?
What if they were discovered?
Yu Canghai fell into a dilemma.
“Alright, this mission is over. It’s about time for us to go back.”
Qin Jue didn’t care about Yu Canghai. He stretched lazily and prepared to leave.
“Wait!” Before he could finish speaking, Qin Jue suddenly interrupted Wu Ying.
Seeing this, Yu Canghai was anxious and hurriedly called out to Qin Jue.
In the end, he decided to take a risk.
“What’s wrong? Is there anything else?”
Qin Jue smiled. He finally couldn’t help it.
“There’s… there’s another fiend beast.”
After hesitating for a long time, Yu Canghai gritted his teeth.
“In the Black Forest.”
Afraid that Qin Jue would misunderstand, Yu Canghai immediately explained, “But that’s a Heaven Stage fiend beast. It’s very dangerous. These fiend beasts should be its subordinates.”
“How did you know these fiend beasts were its subordinates?”
“Uh… this is only my guess. Because ever since that Heaven Stage fiend beast appeared, fiend beasts have constantly attacked the nearby villages and cities. I hope Senior can destroy it and save us.”
“Alright, then bring us to find that Heaven Stage fiend beast.”
Qin Jue didn’t care.
Yu Canghai was clearly lying. Those fiend beasts were clearly attracted here by some special method. It was impossible for them to be the subordinates of some Heaven Stage fiend beast.
As for why he targeted a Heaven Stage fiend beast, Qin Jue would naturally know when he saw it.
Yu Canghai was overjoyed. He then turned around and ordered, “All cultivators above the Profound Stage, bring your weapons and enter the Black Forest with me and the two seniors!”
Although from the strength Qin Jue displayed just now, he alone should be able to deal with that Heaven Stage fiend beast, but they still had to go together due to formalities.
Therefore, under Yu Canghai’s lead, everyone headed towards the Black Forest in a majestic manner.
Unlike the Death Spirit Valley, there were generally only Yellow Stage fiend beasts lingering around the outskirts of the Black Forest. Heaven Stage fiend beasts were already considered to be at the top.
According to Yu Canghai, that Heaven Stage fiend beast had suddenly appeared outside the Black Forest half a month ago. It had attracted the fiend beasts and attacked the nearby villages and cities, causing many cultivators to be killed.
One had to know that even Profound Stage fiend beasts were usually a rare sight in the outskirts of the Black Forest.
Now that so many high-level fiend beasts had suddenly appeared, it was simply no different from a calamity to those cultivators who were active around the outer perimeter of the Black Forest all year round.
Although Yu Canghai’s story was extremely realistic, Qin Jue and Long Zhen knew that these were just excuses Yu Canghai made up for himself.
As everyone continued to enter, the surrounding fiend beasts began to increase in numbers. Fortunately, they were all low-level Yellow Stage and Profound Stage fiend beasts that were easily dealt with by the Yu Clan cultivators. As for fiend beasts above the Earth Stage, they were never seen again.
Seeing that they were about to enter the central area of the Black Forest, Yu Canghai pointed at a cave ahead and said, “That Heaven Stage fiend beast is inside.”
Qin Jue raised his eyes and looked over. He spread out his spirit sense and indeed found the figure of a Heaven Stage fiend beast in the cave.
However, when he saw the appearance of this fiend beast, he immediately revealed a strange expression.
“Are you sure this fiend beast is hostile?”
Qin Jue couldn’t help but ask.
Yu Canghai was shocked.
Did Qin Jue discover something?
In fact, that Heaven Stage fiend beast did not appear half a month ago at all. It had already been there 10 years ago.
If not for the treasure map they obtained from the Stargate Sect, the Yu Clan would not have set their sights on the Xuanyi Mountain Sect and asked for them to help kill the fiend beasts.
Qin Jue rolled his eyes.
At this time, Long Zhen also revealed a strange expression and looked at Qin Jue. It was only when Qin Jue nodded that he confirmed that he hadn’t seen wrongly.
As if sensing that someone was approaching, a roar sounded from the cave. Like a sharp blade, the sound spread out for five kilometers and pierced through everyone’s ears.
In an instant, all the Yu Clan cultivators who had followed over trembled and subconsciously retreated. That was a Heaven Stage fiend beast!
It could easily crush any one of them!
Another long roar sounded, and two balls of sapphire blue light suddenly lit up in the pitch-black cave, looking incomparably strange.
“It’s coming out.”
Yu Canghai took a deep breath and was rather afraid.
Finally, the fiend beast walked out of the cave. It was over two meters tall and emitted a dense killing intent.
It had blue eyes, white brows, and black head. From its appearance, it looked very similar to a wolf, but it was not a wolf.
Yu Canghai and the others might not know what this was, but Qin Jue and Long Zhen knew very well.
Wasn’t this a husky?
