“Uncle-Grandmaster, what song did you sing just now? It was really nice.” The girl stopped what she was doing and wiped her sweat.
In the past, Qin Jue would sing wuxia songs that were free and unrestrained, and the girl had long gotten used to it. This time, he had suddenly changed his style, and this caught her attention.
“You wouldn’t know it even if I told you.” Qin Jue shook his head and did not answer her question.
The girl was speechless.
Apart from his unfathomable cultivation, this Uncle-Grandmaster, who was only in his teens, would often do strange things that were inconceivable. The young girl had never even heard of these strange songs.
“Uncle-Grandmaster, I still have a Martial Dao lesson today. I’ll go back first.”
The girl did not continue to pester him on this topic. She was now an inner sect disciple of Xuanyi Mountain Sect and needed to attend many lessons. Therefore, she could not stay here forever.
“Yeah, go ahead.” Qin Jue waved his hand.
Ever since his master passed away and Bai Ye became the Sect Master, he rarely left this cliff and didn’t like to participate in any activities. The girl’s presence helped Qin Jue feel young again… even though he was still 16 years old.
Qin Jue felt that he was just like Scarlett Johansson in the movie “Lucy”. He was exceptionally calm about everything and did not have many fluctuations in his emotions.
As long as people around him weren’t hurt, Qin Jue couldn’t care less.
“Little guy, I hope you can grow faster.”
Thinking of this, Qin Jue patted the “weed” on the side and smiled.
If he could grow this “weed”, that would be pretty good.
At the same time, the “weed” stretched out its leaf and wrapped coquettishly around Qin Jue’s finger, as if it was asking for something.
“Little fellow, I’ve already poured you some spirit wine today. You can’t be too greedy.”
Qin Jue put on a strict act.
Sometimes, he really suspected that this weed was a human transformed because other than being unable to speak, it was almost no different from a human. It even knew how to curry favor and act coquettishly.
After being reprimanded by Qin Jue, the weed immediately wilted. It obediently retracted its leaves and began to concentrate on absorbing spirit qi to cultivate.
It wasn’t that Qin Jue was unwilling to part with more spirit wine, but once the weed became overly dependent on outside resources, it was very likely to stop evolving. Only by becoming less dependent would it also be able to appreciate the treasures Qin Jue would give it in the future.
Seeing this, Qin Jue was very gratified. He raised his head to drink a mouthful of wine and praised, “As expected of Senior Brother’s hundred-year-old pure wine. The ones I drank before simply can’t compare.”
Because Bai Ye had promised Qin Jue that he could enter his wine cellar, Qin Jue almost swept away all the good wine inside, making Bai Ye so angry that he almost fought with his life. Bai Ye only had himself to blame for making the conditions so vague.
Besides, Bai Ye couldn’t beat him in a fight anyway.
“Hehe, I’ll find another reason to go in and get more next time,” Qin Jue said meaningfully.
“Hmm? What’s that?”
Sensing that something was wrong, Qin Jue raised his head to look at the horizon, only to see a ship flying in the air arrive in an instant at Xuanyi Mountain.
Immediately after, four figures flew down from the ship and headed straight for the main hall of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
Upon closer inspection, Qin Jue noticed that one of them was carrying a mummy.
“I should go and take a look.”
Qin Jue felt that something was up, so he stood up and walked towards the main hall. He could feel the Heaven Stage aura from the four figures. Four Heavenly Stage experts were a force the current Xuanyi Mountain Sect couldn’t defend against.
Of course, that was only if Qin Jue didn’t interfere.
In the grand hall, Bai Ye was handling the affairs of the sect. Beside him was the First Elder, Wang Quan. Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying were also standing nearby.
Originally, they should have been nervously preparing for the war with the Stargate Sect. However, with Song Yun’s death and the deaths of many of their higher-ups, that sect was no longer a threat.
It was no exaggeration to say that Bai Ye alone could easily destroy the current Stargate Sect.
Right at this moment, Bai Ye’s expression suddenly changed as he looked up at the sky. “What a powerful aura!”
The First Elder beside him looked equally aghast. “And not just one.”
Before he could finish his sentence, four figures appeared outside the hall. Uh… with a mummy in a wheelchair…
Although Wei Ling had already consumed the Great Essence Enhancing Pill, it would still take some time for him to fully recover, so he could only stay in this appearance.
“Who is the Sect Master of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect?” the leading youth stepped into the hall and questioned.
“Who are you?” Bai Ye glanced at him and asked a question instead.
Of these four people, one was at the peak of the Heaven Stage realm; two were at the late-phase, and one was at the middle-phase. This lineup clearly didn’t come with good intentions.
Moreover, the middle-phase Heaven Stage youth seemed to be the master of the group.
“Wei Clan, Wei Longtao,” the young man said proudly.
“Wei Longtao?!” The First Elder’s eyes widened in shock.
“Old Wang, do you know him?” Bai Ye frowned slightly.
The First Elder swallowed his saliva and explained, “If I recall correctly, Wei Longtao should be the strongest expert among the younger generation of the Wei Clan.”
“I see.” Bai Ye remained calm. “I am Bai Ye, the Sect Master of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Why has Young Master Wei come to our Xuanyi Mountain?”
Seeing Bai Ye maintain a calm expression, Wei Longtao was rather surprised, but he did not think too much about it. Instead, he went straight to the point and said, “Sect Master Bai, Wei Ping of the Wei Clan was killed by your Xuanyi Mountain Sect, correct?”
“Yes,” Bai Ye said indifferently, “he had colluded with the Stargate Sect and attempted to launch a sneak attack on my Xuanyi Mountain Sect Branch Hall. He deserved his death.”
At this moment, Bai Ye was finally displaying the demeanor of a sect master.
“I don’t care what the reason was. Those who dare to harm my Wei Clan must pay the price.” Wei Longtao’s eyes were cold and murderous.
“Is that so?” Bai Ye sighed. It seemed like he couldn’t avoid it after all.
“But I can give you one chance,” Wei Longtao said arrogantly. “As long as you are willing to submit to the Wei Clan and provide us sixty percent of your cultivation resources every year and hand over the person who killed Wei Ping, I can let bygones be bygones.”
“Screw you!” Zhang Jichen couldn’t help but curse out loud, turning into a madman.
Even an idiot would be able to tell that this wasn’t giving them a chance at all. He wanted to take over the entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect!
“Who do you think you are? Do you have the right to speak here?” Wei Longtao hmphed coldly, and then with a wave of his hand, a stream of spirit energy instantly shot toward Zhang Jichen!
However, before this ball of spirit energy could approach him, it was overtaken by another gentle spirit energy and dissipated.
“Young Master Wei, this is Xuanyi Mountain Sect, not the Wei Clan,” Bai Ye lowered his eyes and said in a deep voice.
“Young Master Wei, your demand is too much!” The First Elder shook his head furiously.
If they agreed to Wei Longtao’s request, it would be no different from giving up the entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Despite his unwillingness to offend the Wei Clan, even the First Elder would not agree to such conditions.
“Hehe, I’m here to give you a chance, not to negotiate with you.” Wei Longtao sneered coldly. “Submit or die!”
