Chapter 174: Just Like That?
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
In the Black Forest, a majestic fiend beast roared towards the sky. It was extremely arrogant, as if it was declaring its sovereignty, causing the nearby low-level fiend beasts to be fearful and scatter.
“Okay, stop screaming. We should probably get going.”
Qin Jue’s face darkened and he was rather speechless.
Although the current husky was a Heaven Stage fiend beast, its personality was no different from that of the husky on Earth. As expected of a beauty that was obtained by burning its intelligence through selective breeding.
“Yes, yes, Master is right.”
The husky grinned and stuck out its tongue. It was very obedient.
“Wait, I forgot something.”
As if recalling something, the husky bounced into the cave. Not long after, it ran out with a bone in its mouth.
Qin Jue :”…”
“Hehe, Master, this bone has accompanied me for decades. It’s as close as a brother to me. In the future, when I take human form, I’ll use it as a weapon.”
The husky licked the bone and said incoherently.
Qin Jue brushed his face with his palm and suddenly felt a little regretful.
Sighing, Qin Jue took out a white jade-like bone from his storage ring and threw it over.
This bone was about a meter long and was crystal clear. It emitted a gentle fluorescent light and the spirit qi within it circulated. It was not an ordinary item.
The husky subconsciously caught it and suddenly widened its eyes as if it had seen a rare treasure. “What a beautiful bone.”
Long Zhen was also slightly surprised because that was the bone of a Saint Stage fiend beast!
As everyone knew, the flesh and bones of ordinary Supreme Stage fiend beasts were already not inferior to heavenly treasures. They could be used to refine medicinal pills and spirit artifacts, let alone the bones of Saint Stage fiend beasts.
Even without the augmentation of the runes, its hardness was not inferior to a Supreme Stage or even a Legendary Stage spirit artifact. If refined with other materials, it would not be impossible for this bone to become a sacred artifact.
“This bone is yours.”
In fact, Qin Jue still had many similar bones in his storage ring. They were all bones that were left behind from the beast meat that he had eaten in the Demon Beast Mountain Rang. He even had the bones of a Grand Saint Stage fiend beast.
What was worth mentioning was that Qin Jue had erased the original fiend beast aura on the beast bone. Otherwise, even if it was a post-death aura, the husky wouldn’t be able to withstand it.
After all, fiend beasts had always been particular about bloodline suppression.
The husky was overjoyed. Although it could not tell what level of fiend beast this bone came from, it could tell from its quality that it was definitely extraordinary. In comparison, its bone from before was simply trash!
Thinking of this, the husky spat its previous bone out without hesitation and kicked it away, making it disappear into the horizon.
Qin Jue :”…”
Didn’t you say that the bone had accompanied you for decades and was as close as brothers with you?
Just like that?
“Roar, thank you, Master.”
The husky did not think too much about it. It licked its new bone fiercely, grinning from ear to ear.
At this moment, the husky felt that its decision was incomparably right. If it followed such a master, would it still have to worry about living a good life in the future?
In its eyes, Qin Jue was a god sent by the heavens that had come to “rescue” it.
After Qin Jue had completely subdued the husky, this matter had completely come to an end.
As for the Yu Clan, after losing all the cultivators above the Profound Stage, it was almost impossible for them to rise again. He believed that they would soon be replaced by other nearby Martial Dao factions.
After leaving the Black Forest, Qin Jue wasn’t in a hurry to return to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Instead, he took Long Zhen to stroll around. Since Long Zhen wanted to come out for a walk, then of course Qin Jue would follow through to the end.
In addition, because they had the husky, a Heaven Stage fiend beast, as a mount, ordinary cultivators did not dare to approach them at all.
Just like that, five days passed in the blink of an eye.
On this day, Qin Jue was sleeping on the husky when Long Zhen suddenly woke him up.
“Brother Qin, I’m going back.” Long Zhen said solemnly.
Hearing this, Qin Jue immediately realized that something was wrong. “What happened?”
“I just received news that a few days ago, a pit suddenly appeared in the Central Continent. It covered an area of 5,000 kilometers and formed a huge abyss.”
Long Zhen explained seriously, “Many cultivators were curious and went to investigate. However, none of the cultivators who entered the abyss came back out alive.”
After a pause, he added, “Including Saint Stage cultivators.”
Qin Jue was surprised.
Although the Saint Stage was nothing in front of him, besides the Eight Great Sacred Lands and the Twelve Sacred Clans, the Saint Stage was already the most powerful existence in the Spirit Central World. With a single move, they could cause the heavens to collapse and the earth to shatter.
In the history of the Spirit Central World, there had also been cultivators who chose to travel the galaxy and explore other worlds after advancing to the Saint Stage.
Long Zhen could also do this, but he was unwilling to leave because of his family.
In short, Saint Stage experts were extremely powerful. Even if they were no match for Qin Jue, it was still odd for them to die off so easily.
Long Zhen nodded. “That’s not the point. The point is that my son went in too.”
Qin Jue was puzzled
Qin Jue suddenly thought of that young man named Long Aotian and now understood why Long Zhen was so anxious.
“Brother Long, do you know what that huge pit is?”
Qin Jue frowned and asked.
If even a Saint Stage expert was unable to return after entering, this must be more than just a simple pit.
“I don’t know.”
Long Zhen smiled bitterly. “This is the first time I’ve encountered such a situation in thousands of years. I have to see for myself to determine the exact situation.”
“In that case, I won’t delay Brother Long any longer. If you need any help, feel free to contact me via the spirit tablet.”
Qin Jue didn’t plan to follow them. With Long Zhen’s fourth realm Great Void Stage cultivation, there was almost nothing in the Spirit Central World that he couldn’t deal with. Why should Qin Jue be a busybody?
After saying this, Long Zhen instantly disappeared from his original spot. The two of them were both transmigrators, so they understood each other and there was no need for them to say anything else.
“Howl, so fast.”
The husky jumped up in shock. Only now did it realize that Long Zhen was also so powerful.
Qin Jue stretched lazily and said, “Alright, let’s go back.”
Since Long Zhen had already left, it would be a waste of time for him to continue strolling around alone. He might as well go back.
“Roar ~ Master, where are we going?”
Hearing this, the husky instantly became energetic and wanted to use all the spirit energy in its body.
Seeing this, Qin Jue suddenly had a bad premonition. Could this guy end up tearing down his house?
“I live in the Xuanyi Mountain…”
“Ah, so Master really is from the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. No wonder Master is so powerful. Master should be the sect master of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, right?”
The husky shouted excitedly.
It had finally found someone to rely on.
Qin Jue shook his head.
The husky :”…”
Could there be two Supreme Stage experts in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect?
The husky was stunned for a moment before it became even happier. Didn’t this mean that it had gained two powerful allies?
Qin Jue couldn’t be bothered to explain. With a slight movement of his spirit sense, the husky was immediately given the exact location of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.. Then it raised its forelimbs high into the sky like a rocket and flew towards the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
