Southern Land, Xuanyi Mountain
As the area continued to expand with new buildings, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect was clearly much more lively than before. Many cultivators from other places even came to join the sect.
However, Bai Ye had never had any ambitions. He cherished his reputation and would rather have fewer people in the sect. After all, this was a world of cultivation. In front of absolute strength, numbers were useless.
For example, the Stargate Sect had more than ten thousand disciples, but were easily suppressed by the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
All because Bai Ye was stronger than Song Yun.
If not for the Wei Clan backing them up, the Stargate Sect would definitely not have dared to declare war on the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
In the end, the monkeys scattered when the tree fell. After Song Yun and many other higher-ups died, the other cultivators immediately chose to flee without hesitation. However, when they left, they also didn’t forget to plunder the entire Stargate Sect.
Especially after Bai Ye learned about the situation of the Yu Clan from Qin Jue, Bai Ye had even started refusing some of the Martial Dao factions that were willing to pay the Xuanyi Mountain Sect a portion of their cultivation resources.
In any case, the storage ring Qin Jue gave him had already contained a large amount of cultivation resources. It was enough for the current Xuanyi Mountain Sect to remain idle for more than a thousand years without worrying about cultivation resources.
At the same time, Qin Jue was also updated with the news of the Central Continent through the spirit tablet.
According to the Spiritnet, the abyss had suddenly appeared without any warning. All the living beings in the vicinity of the abyss, regardless of their levels, were devoured.
This matter caused a huge uproar in the Central Continent and was extremely shocking, which was why so many cultivators from all around the world had gone to investigate.
Long Aotian was one of such people.
However, no one expected Long Aotian to be so unlucky. Not only did he encounter Qin Jue after running away from home and suffered a beating, now he had even been swallowed by the abyss. It was unknown if he was still alive.
Perhaps he was the unlucky version of “Long Aotian”?
Of course, no one in the outside world knew that the son of the Immortal Sacred Master was also in the abyss. Otherwise, they would have been a lot more uproar long ago.
Even so, the popularity of this matter still far surpassed the destruction of the Spirit Clan.
It wasn’t that the destruction of the Spirit Clan wasn’t shocking, but from beginning to end, no one had seen the exact scene. They only knew that one of the Twelve Sacred Clans, the Spirit Clan, had been destroyed.
On the contrary, many people had witnessed the incident in the abyss with their own eyes. The pictures had also spread on the Spiritnet, so the visual impact it brought was naturally incomparable.
As time passed, people began to guess that there was hell below the abyss, since everyone who had entered had already died.
Some people guessed that there was another world below the abyss. They claimed that those cultivators were just trapped and could not escape.
For a moment, there were all sorts of opinions, but no one dared to enter the abyss again.
“I wonder if Long Zhen had gone in yet.”
Qin Jue fell into deep thought.
Although he did not know what this abyss was, from the looks of it, it was definitely not simple. It might really be a portal to another world.
Thinking of this, Qin Jue frowned slightly. Could it be the Asura World?
Without waiting for Qin Jue to figure it out, Wu Ying’s anxious voice suddenly sounded. “Not good, Uncle-Master, not good!”
“Why are you so nervous? Is Senior Brother eating his own pills again?”
“Uh… no, the fiend beast you brought back is fighting Tam.” Wu Ying was stunned and quickly said.
Qin Jue was stunned. Only then did he realize that the husky, who had been lying on the side, had disappeared at some point.
Two spirit energies soared into the sky, causing the clouds to disperse, forming energy ripples that spread out.
A familiar roar echoed throughout the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
Rolling his eyes, Qin Jue’s figure flashed and instantly arrived at the place where the husky and Tam were fighting.
A dog and a frog were entangled together, not retreating at all, as if they both wanted to devour the other party.
Qin Jue snorted. Golden light spread out and forcefully separated the two.
Seeing Qin Jue, the husky was overjoyed. “Master, this frog is too much. You have to seek justice for me.”
Qin Jue’s face darkened as he questioned, “What happened?”
“It ambushed me when I wasn’t paying attention.”
The husky revealed a human-like expression and looked aggrieved.
“Is that true?”
Qin Jue looked at Tam.
“Uncle-Master Qin, don’t listen to this nonsense. It was the one who tore down my house first.”
Tam shivered and pointed to a ruin not far away.
Ever since Bai Ye advanced to the Supreme Stage, Tam had become the “divine beast guardian” of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. It had its own courtyard and its status was comparable to an elder’s. How could it tolerate the husky tearing down its house?
Sure enough, no matter where it was, the husky was always an expert at tearing down houses. Originally, it had been very quiet these days, and Qin Jue thought that it had “turned over a new leaf”. It seemed that he was thinking too much.
“Master, listen to my excuses… No, listen to my explanation. I didn’t do it on purpose… Roar—”
With a scream, the husky was sent flying, leaving a crack on the ground as it gritted its teeth in pain.
Then… the husky lay on the ground motionless.
Yes, in order to avoid Qin Jue’s continued beating, it chose to feign death.
Regarding this, Qin Jue was rather speechless. He waved his hand, and as if time was flowing backwards, the house that had originally been turned into ruins miraculously recovered without a trace.
Although it knew that Qin Jue was very powerful, it didn’t expect him to be so powerful that he could even restore a destroyed house.
“If you don’t get up soon, I’ll roast and eat you.”
After doing this, Qin Jue came to the husky and said indifferently.
Hearing this, the husky was so frightened that it hurriedly got up from the ground, afraid that Qin Jue would really roast it.
“I’ll only do this once. If there’s a next time, you’re dead meat.”
As the saying went, if jade was not cut, it would not become a tool. If one did not learn, they would not know justice. Fiend beasts were no exception.
If he didn’t discipline him well, who knew what the husky would do in the future? Tam had also learned discipline this way.
“I understand, Master.”
The husky lowered its head guiltily and did not dare to refute.
In the following period of time, the husky became much more well-behaved and started staying at the cliff without going anywhere. It even became good friends with Luo Weiwei and Yun Xi.
Qin Jue was slightly absent-minded. Unknowingly, this cliff had become so lively. If it were half a year ago, it would be hard to imagine such a scene.
On the other side, in the Sacred Land of the Central Continent.
Long Zhen stood at the edge of the abyss. As far as the eye could see, the abyss almost had no end to it. It was also pitch-black below, sinister and strange.
Beside him, the seven Sacred Masters of the Sacred Lands had all gathered here. All of them were lofty and had solemn expressions.
“Sacred Master Long, did you discover anything?”
After a moment of silence, a silver-haired old man asked. He was the Sacred Master of the Primordial Chaos Sacred Land.
Long Zhen sighed. If he had discovered something, would he still be standing here?
Before this, he had once entered the abyss. Unfortunately, he
