The sturdy door instantly turned into dust that scattered with the wind.
“Is this the lair of that supreme king?” Qin Jue said indifferently.
“According to my memories, it should be here.”
Long Zhen answered.
For some reason, the environment here always gave off an uncomfortable feeling, as if there were secret observers in the background. It was extremely strange.
Right at this moment, a gust of cold wind blew past, and dozens of sinister and terrifying spirit energy auras that could make an ordinary cultivator shudder instantly appeared nearby the two of them.
“Who are you? How dare you trespass into Nine Nether City!” The Hell World expert hidden in the darkness raised his voice and said vigilantly.
Long Zhen felt that this place was strange, but the other party also found Long Zhen and Qin Jue to be equally as strange.
After all, they had never seen such spirit energy fluctuations before and did not dare to approach it casually.
“Nine Nether City?”
Qin Jue looked around and found that it did look like a “Nine Nether City”.
After all, they were in the Hell World.
“Who are you guys?” The person asked again but still did not dare to approach.
Qin Jue couldn’t be bothered to waste his breath. He pressed his palm lightly, and the nearby experts of the Hell World were immediately trapped in place, unable to move or even open their mouths.
After doing this, Qin Jue spread out his spirit sense and quickly found the palace where the Nine Nether Supreme King was located. After that, he and Long Zhen flew towards the center of Nine Nether City.
Nine Nether City was abnormally huge. To get there without using a transmission formation, even Supreme Stage experts would need to fly for a few days.
However, this was nothing to Qin Jue and Long Zhen.
Because they did not try to hide their auras, they encountered many experts from the Hell World who jumped out to stop them along the way. However, they were all quickly suppressed and were not very troublesome to deal with. Even the Saint Stage experts were no exception.
Finally, as they approached the palace, an incomparable aura rose, burning with black flames. Even in the darkness, the aura seemed exceptionally strong.
Amidst the black flames, a huge figure with the head of a bull and the body of a human walked out. It had a devilishly huge body and was hundreds of thousands of feet tall.
It was the Saint Body that only experts above the Saint Stage could use!
“Which supreme king do you serve? Do you know that barging into Nine Nether City is a capital offense?!”
The minotaur looked down at the two of them. The spirit energy in his body was as vast as the sea. He had shockingly reached the Grand Saint Stage!
He was also the first Grand Saint Stage expert Qin Jue and Long Zhen had encountered since coming to this world.
“I don’t know.”
Qin Jue shook his head.
The minotaur was speechless.
“Hehe, Old Bull, why waste your breath on them? Just kill them.”
Another aura rose from the side, and it was actually on par with the minotaur. However, the one who walked out was a horse-headed man. He was also 30,000 meters tall, like a giant pillar that held up the sky.
A bull and a horse?
Qin Jue and Long Zhen looked at each other with strange expressions.
In the next moment, the horse-headed man waved his fist, bringing with it boundless spirit energy as he smashed it towards Qin Jue and Qin Jue. The entire world shook under this fist, as if it would collapse at any moment.
Not only that, but the surrounding space had also been completely sealed. Clearly, the horse-headed man had no intention of holding back.
Seeing that the meteor-like fist was about to land, Qin Jue sighed and flicked his finger.
With a light sound, a weak golden light welcomed the fist.
Compared to Qin Jue’s attack, the horse-headed man’s attack was simply insignificant. When the golden light touched the horse-headed man’s fist, it easily tore it apart with spirit energy, then instantly passed through his entire arm and shot out from his shoulder!
As the golden light lingered, it exploded like fireworks, dazzling and resplendent.
At the same time, the horse-headed man collapsed, crushing countless buildings. His body quickly shrank until his Saint Body disappeared.
This was even after Qin Jue had stopped attacking. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have been as simple as losing an arm.
“How is that possible?”
On the other side, the minotaur was already dumbfounded. His mountain-like face was filled with shock.
Defeating the horse-headed man with one move?
As an old friend who had lived with him for more than ten thousand years, the minotaur knew very well how powerful the horse-headed man was. He knew that the horse-headed man was at the peak of the Saint Stage and knew all kinds of combat techniques.
Even though it was difficult for one to reach the Great Sage Stage due to their talent and lifespan, they were still invincible among Grand Saint Stage experts.
In other words, besides the Great Sage Stage, no one could defeat him.
Thinking of this, the minotaur was even more shocked. Could this strange-looking creature be a Great Sage Stage expert?
Before the minotaur could figure it out, a mighty roar suddenly sounded from the palace behind him. “How dare you!”
After witnessing the horse-headed man being “insta-killed”, Nine Nether could no longer sit still.
In an instant, within a radius of 5,000 kilometers, dark spirit qi surged, as if something was awakening. All the living beings in Nine Nether City sensed it and looked over.
In the Hell World, high-level experts had a natural advantage.
This was especially true after reaching the Great Sage Stage. A Great Sage Stage expert could completely control the power of the Hell World and suppress all low-level living beings.
This was also the reason why the Eternal Night Empire was so powerful and could remain for so long.
Even if the ten supreme king experts joined forces, they still wouldn’t be a match for the two sacred ancestors.
Similarly, with ten supreme king experts holding down the fort, no one dared to resist.
Nine Nether stepped on the black flames and flew out of the palace. Four wings spread out from his back, covering the sky.
As soon as he came up, Nine Nether revealed his true body because he sensed an extremely dangerous aura from Qin Jue.
“You guys came from another world, right?”
Nine Nether was a Great Sage Stage expert after all, so he instantly recognized Qin Jue and Long Zhen’s identities.
Long Zhen didn’t try to hide it. In fact, he couldn’t hide it either. His spirit energy attribute was too obvious, like a light in the night. With Nine Nether’s cultivation, it was impossible for him to not notice it.
After a pause, Long Zhen added, “We have no ill intentions. We just want to find our companion who entered this world before us.”
Long Zhen didn’t mention that the companion was actually his son because he thought it would be too dangerous and that such information could be used against him.
Jiuyou’s lips curled into a sinister smile. “But why should I tell you where he is?”
Sighing, Long Zhen looked slightly helpless. “Looks like I can only use the soul searching technique.”
Hearing this, Nine Nether was stunned for a moment before he laughed. “Soul Search? You want to use Soul Search on me? Hahaha.”
“Do you know where this is?!”
With a cold snort, Nine Nether’s tone suddenly turned cold as his spirit energy swept out in all directions, forming many abnormalities that resonated in the Hell World.
“You barged into Nine Nether City and injured my protector. Do you really think you can just do whatever you want in the Hell World?”
In Nine Nether’s opinion, no matter how strong the other party was, they would at most be at the same stage as him. If he fought with two Great Sage Stage experts normally, he would definitely have no chance of winning.
However, this was the Hell World, and the other party’s strength would definitely be greatly reduced. Therefore, Nine Nether was filled with confidence.
Hearing this, Long Zhen couldn’t help but roll his eyes. Sigh, why bother? Why force me to attack?
