Chapter 208: Return
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
To Qin Jue, the matter between the Profound Mysteries Realm and the Asura World was just an interlude and didn’t matter to him at all, so he didn’t take it to heart.
Since he already knew the exact location of the Spirit Central World, it was time for him to return.
At this moment, in the vast starry sky, Qin Jue stood gracefully and looked into the distance. The Asura World behind him was still burning, and he believed that it wouldn’t be long before it turned to ashes.
These flames were not ordinary flames, but flames that were condensed by Qin Jue’s spirit energy. They possessed extremely strong destructive power. Before everything was burned, they would absolutely not be extinguished. Even a Great Void Stage expert would not be able to withstand them.
Moreover, there were no Great Void Stage experts left in the current Asura World.
What was worth mentioning was the Asura World was not the only world in this void. It was just that the other worlds had long been reduced to ruins, leaving nothing behind.
It was obvious that the other worlds had been attacked by the Asura World.
Qin Jue circled the surroundings and confirming that no one had escaped, Qin Jue spread out his spirit sense and quickly navigated through the endless void according to Luo Changge’s memories to search for the aura that belonged to the Spirit Central World.
In the next moment, Qin Jue’s figure lengthened infinitely and he instantly disappeared from his original spot.
Spirit Central World, Southern Land, Xuanyi Mountain.
“Strange, where did Junior Brother go these past few days? Why didn’t he tell us where he went? He just disappeared without a trace.”
Bai Ye frowned slightly and was rather worried.
“Don’t worry. With Junior Brother Qin’s cultivation, he should be fine.”
Mu Ziqi sat beside Bai Ye and consoled him.
Ever since the incident with the Mu Clan last time, Mu Ziqi had already realized that Qin Jue was absolutely not as simple as he seemed.
Mu Ziqi was certain that Qin Jue must have been a Saint Stage expert for the stubborn First Elder to give up so easily.
As long as such an existence lives his life without offending the top factions of the Sacred Land of the Central Continent, his life would definitely not be in any danger.
“I hope so.”
Bai Ye smiled bitterly.
Bai Ye wasn’t worried about Qin Jue’s safety. With Qin Jue’s strength, he basically had no opponents in the Spirit Central World, so how could he encounter danger?
But in the past, Qin Jue would always tell him in advance every time he left, but this time, he didn’t. That was the main reason why Bai Ye was so concerned.
As the saying went, an elder brother was like a father, even though Bai Ye was only a senior brother and was very unreliable.
But in this world, he was absolutely the one who cared about Qin Jue the most. Otherwise, Qin Jue wouldn’t have been able to stay in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect for ten years without caring about anything.
At the same time, in the Immortal Sacred Land of the Central Continent.
Long Zhen stood by the side of a spirit spring and waved his hand to scatter the spirit food. Immediately, many fish fought over it.
After doing this, Long Zhen dusted his hands and said faintly, “I wonder how the Xuanyi Mountain Sect is doing?”
“Sacred Master, after our warning, no faction in the Southern Land would dare to provoke the Xuanyi Mountain Sect in the future.” A figure in a black robe said as he bowed.
“Mm, very good. Remember, you have to ensure the safety of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Nothing can go wrong.” Long Zhen said seriously.
The black figure slowly distorted and gradually disappeared from his original spot.
“Sigh, Brother Qin, I wonder where you are now.”
Sighing, Long Zhen looked up at the sky with a slightly melancholy expression.
Ever since Qin Jue was devoured by the explosion of the Hell World, Long Zhen had been extremely guilty, thinking that he was the one who had harmed Qin Jue.
Therefore, he had specially sent people to protect the Xuanyi Mountain Sect to prevent the sect from encountering danger.
But for some reason, he felt that Qin Jue wasn’t dead and was constantly paying attention to the realm space of the Spirit Central World, hoping that Qin Jue would return one day.
Thinking of this, Long Zhen took out a pot of spirit wine and went to the pavilion beside him to pour himself a cup.
It had to be said that the trip to the Hell World had benefited him greatly. Not only had he grasped dark spirit energy, but he had also mastered how to combine the two and was faintly showing signs of breaking through.
If nothing went wrong, he should be able to advance to the fifth realm of the Great Void Stage in half a year.
At that time, even if the Eternal Night Emperor was revived, Long Zhen was confident that he could still defeat him.
“However, compared to Brother Qin, I’m still far inferior.”
He still remembered the scene of Qin Jue easily beating the Eternal Night Emperor, making it seem as simple as crushing an ant.
Suddenly, Long Zhen frowned slightly. He sensed waves of fluctuations coming from the realm space of the Spirit Central World, as if someone was passing through the endless void and heading here.
He had always been observing the realm space of the Spirit Central World with his spirit sense, so the moment the spatial fluctuation appeared, he had already accurately captured its exact location.
“Could it be Brother Qin?”
Long Zhen was stunned for a moment before being overjoyed.
Without any time to think, Long Zhen took a step forward and rushed towards the place where the spatial fluctuation came from.
Western Land, Black Sun City.
Strictly speaking, besides the Central Continent, the Western Land should be the most powerful region in the Spirit Central World. Otherwise, the Purple Spirit Race would not have been willing to hide in the border of the harsh environment and not dare to step foot into the Western Land.
As for Black Sun City, it could only be considered an extremely ordinary city in the Western Land. The strongest person in the city was only at the Heaven Stage. However, because the cultivation resources in the vicinity were relatively abundant, the city was very prosperous.
At this moment, in the sky above Black Sun City, space was torn apart, forming a huge vortex that covered an area of 50 kilometers. Lightning continuously fell, as if the sky was hanging upside down. It was a horrifying sight.
All the cultivators in Black Sun City looked up at the spatial vortex and shivered, not knowing what to do.
After all, they had never encountered such a situation before.
“What is this?”
“I don’t know. It’s terrifying.”
“Could it be caused by a battle between high-level cultivators?”
Everyone discussed animatedly, and they were both afraid and curious. They didn’t understand what was going on.
At this moment, a stream of light flew over. One second, it was still far away, and in the next second, it had already appeared above Black Sun City.
Apart from Long Zhen, who else could it be?
The originally excited Long Zhen immediately realized that something was wrong when he saw the spatial vortex in front of him. “What’s going on? This isn’t Brother Qin’s aura.”
Before he could finish his sentence, a pitch-black beam of light suddenly shot out from the spatial vortex. The energy contained in it was enough to destroy ten Black Sun City cities.
Fortunately, Long Zhen arrived in time. Otherwise, the Black Sun City would have disappeared forever.
Long Zhen spread his arms and approached the spatial vortex at a constant speed. Then, the black pillar of light with a diameter of ten meters seemed to be forcefully sucked over and flew towards Long Zhen before shrinking crazily.
Its diameter shrank from ten meters, to five meters, then to two meters, and finally to half a meter. when it fell into Long Zhen’s palm, the diameter was only as wide as a marble.
In the eyes of the Black Sun City cultivators below, such means seemed incredibly holy and impossible to achieve.
“You can go back to where you came from.”
Long Zhen flicked his finger and the black “marble-diameter” light immediately shot back at an even faster speed.
Since it wasn’t Qin Jue, then Long Zhen had nothing to worry about.
A terrifying explosion swept out, spreading out layer by layer with the spatial vortex at the center.
The strange thing was that the spatial vortex was not affected at all. It remained very stable. It was simply inconceivable.
Soon, Long Zhen understood what was going on. It turned out that a shield had blocked the explosion.
As for Long Zhen, he finally saw who the other party was.
