“Where did you go just now?” Long Zhen questioned.
“I’ve always been here.”
Qin Jue was speechless.
If not for his fast reaction and timely grab, Long Zhen would have been severely injured by this punch and might even have died on the spot.
“Then why wasn’t I able to find you?”
The corner of Long Zhen’s eyes twitched slightly.
Before he finished speaking, he realized that even though Qin Jue was standing in front of him, he couldn’t sense his aura. What was going on?
It seemed to be the same when he first saw Qin Jue.
“Uh… I just think it’s too dark here and I’ve isolated myself.”
Qin Jue explained with a bitter smile.
At this moment, in Qin Jue’s field of vision, this world was bright and he could see everything. It saved him a lot of trouble.
Long Zhen was stunned. What kind of technique was this?
One had to know that the domain of a Great Void Stage expert only allowed the cultivator to create a small world that replaced the real world.
And yet Qin Jue could actually isolate himself from the real world? Didn’t that mean that he could ignore any domain?
Was Qin Jue really only in the Great Void Stage?
Long Zhen was suspicious for the first time.
Qin Jue didn’t think too much about it. He released his fingers and smiled. “Let’s go. If this continues, your son will be killed.”
Long Zhen :”…”
Next, the two of them walked for a long time. There was still thick fog around them, and they could not see anything.
At that moment, a voice suddenly sounded from the side. “Are you guys going to cross the bridge?”
The two of them looked over and saw an old woman with white hair and a face like leather boots standing by the bridge. Her teeth were sharp, and her pupils were dark. She looked exceptionally terrifying.
“She is the supreme king that guarded this stone bridge, Meng Po.”
Long Zhen transmitted his voice.
The ten supreme kings of the Eternal Night Empire were divided into three factions for some reason.
Meng Po was the only neutral party without her own jurisdiction. Unless there were special circumstances, she would never leave the stone bridge.
What was worth mentioning was that Meng Po’s strength was extremely formidable, and she was ranked in the top three among the ten supreme kings. She was only half a step away from the Great Void Stage.
“Are you guys going to cross the bridge?” The old woman asked again.
Qin Jue nodded slightly.
He wanted to see what the Meng Po of this world was like.
“Then drink this bowl of soup first.”
The old woman picked up two bowls of turbid soup and handed them to Qin Jue and Qin Jue.
Qin Jue smiled and said, “But I want to know what this soup tastes like.”
Hearing this, the old woman was stunned and hesitated. She subconsciously picked up the spoon and took a sip. She said in satisfaction, “Don’t worry, it tastes very good.”
Before she could finish speaking, the old woman suddenly revealed a blank expression and looked at Qin Jue and Su Yan. “Are you guys going to cross the bridge?”
“Hmm, what does this soup taste like?” Qin Jue suppressed his laughter and asked again.
So the old woman picked up her spoon and tasted it again. “It tastes good.”
Then, an extremely comical scene appeared on the Bridge of Helplessness. The old woman continuously picked up a spoon to taste the soup beside her, revealing a satisfied expression. It repeated over and over again, forming a cycle.
“I didn’t expect this to work…”
Long Zhen was dumbfounded.
One had to know that this Meng Po was a Great Sage Stage expert, and she was several times stronger than Nine Nether. Since she was able to forget what had happened before, it meant that the pot of soup was obviously not simple. But… wasn’t this too stupid?
Long Zhen even suspected that Meng Po was really a Great Sage Stage expert?
Was there a mistake somewhere?
After passing through the Bridge of Helplessness, a huge city appeared in front of the two of them. It stretched straight to the horizon and couldn’t be seen. It was even bigger than the Heaven Ascension City Qin Jue had seen before.
“Are the two sacred ancestors inside?” Qin Jue took a sip of wine and said indifferently.
Long Zhen nodded and said, “They should be experts of the Great Void Stage. We have to be careful.”
Qin Jue didn’t care about this. Before he knew Long Zhen, he didn’t know about the so-called Great Void Stage at all. But after knowing Long Zhen, Qin Jue realized that the Great Void Stage was only so-so.
As long as he was willing, he could strangle Long Zhen to death at any time.
It had to be known that Long Zhen was already at the fourth realm of the Great Void Stage, so Qin Jue never thought that the Great Void Stage was very powerful.
However, the appearance of Qin Jue and Long Zhen quickly attracted the attention of the experts in the city. After all, the attributes of their spirit energy were too obvious, especially when Long Zhen wasn’t trying to hide it at all.
In fact, there was no need to hide it anymore.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Hundreds of experts from the Hell World flew out of the imperial capital. All of them were above the Saint Stage. They floated in the air and looked down at them.
The leader was a Grand Saint with a tail like a fiend beast. He slowly spoke with a thunderous voice, “Who are you? What are you doing here?”
Long Zhen did not answer. He directly used his domain to suppress all the experts of the Hell World.
Some with lower cultivation levels immediately fell from the sky and hit the ground.
Ever since he stepped into the Great Void Stage, Long Zhen rarely made a move again, and no one in the Spirit Central World dared to provoke him.
For the first time in thousands of years, Long Zhen felt eager and wanted to fight those two sacred ancestors.
Qin Jue and Long Zhen entered the imperial capital of the Eternal Night Empire as if no one was around and headed straight for the location of the sacred ancestors.
Wherever they passed, no matter what stage the Hell World experts were at, they were all easily suppressed by Long Zhen’s domain.
In addition, because the other supreme king experts were stationed elsewhere, they didn’t encounter any more Great Sage Stage experts.
Not long after, the two of them arrived outside a pitch-black mountain. Two terrifying auras were emitted from the mountaintop. Without needing to think, they knew that it was definitely those two sacred ancestors.
“Tian’er is indeed here.”
Sensing that the strand of spirit energy Long Aotian left behind suddenly resonated, Long Zhen couldn’t help but sigh.
Qin Jue’s method was indeed simple and effective. Previously, they had searched for two days but found nothing. Now, they had directly arrived at the imperial capital of the Eternal Night Empire and found what they were looking for in less than a day.
If he had known earlier that this method would be so successful, Long Zhen wouldn’t have been so conflicted.
At this moment, many dazzling abnormalities suddenly appeared in the surroundings, surrounding the two of them and constantly spinning, trying to confuse them.
“What is this?”
Qin Jue was puzzled.
“Formation. It’s a formation.”
Long Zhen’s expression was grave. He immediately spread his spirit sense to avoid a sneak attack.
Hearing this, Qin Jue curled his lips and flicked his finger. The thousands of phenomena instantly shattered and turned into smoke. The array formation also collapsed and everything regained its calm.
Long Zhen :”…”
Sure enough, Qin Jue’s methods were always so simple and crude!
Space tore apart as a pitch-black beam of light suddenly fell from the sky, attacking Qin Jue and Su Yan. Even a Great Sage Stage expert would find it difficult to resist such a powerful attack.
However, in front of Qin Jue and Su Yan, the attack seemed ordinary.
Long Zhen casually waved his hand, and the pitch-black pillar of light immediately melted and shattered like ice. Immediately after, Long Zhen waved his hand again, and endless spirit energy surged towards the mountaintop, even drawing in the dark spirit qi!
A shiny light lit up like the rising sun. It was very dazzling, as if it wanted to swallow up all the darkness!
