Chapter 221: Background

With Luo Feng’s death and the disappearance of all the cultivators from the Pure Yang Sacred Land, it also meant that the matter had come to an end.
As for whether the experts of the Pure Yang Sacred Land would continue to send people over, that was another matter.
Ye Qing and the other two sect masters looked at each other and heaved a sigh of relief. Fortunately, they had been calm just now and were not in a hurry to take sides. Otherwise, they would probably be in trouble now.
But the patriarchs of the Six Great Clans weren’t so lucky. At this moment, they were all shivering with their heads lowered, not daring to speak, afraid that Qin Jue would turn around and punch them.
No, even Mu Ziqi could easily kill them without Qin Jue even needing to do anything.
If even the patriarchs of the Six Great Clans were like this, then there was even less of a need to talk about those ordinary factions. This was especially true for the faction leaders that had been the most aggressive. All of their faces were as pale as paper, and they didn’t know what to do.
After offending such an expert, would they still have a foothold in the Southern Land in the future? Could they be able to leave this place in one piece?
At this moment, Ye Qing suddenly stepped forward and said,
“Senior, these factions have all contributed to the Plain Field War. Although their words just now were very infuriating, it was still a small mistake. Senior, please let them off.”
At this point, Ye Qing bowed and cupped his fists with an incomparably sincere attitude.
As soon as these words were spoken, the faction leaders who were originally ashen-faced immediately looked at Ye Qing with grateful expressions.
At this time, Ye Qing’s willingness to stand up for them was no different from saving their lives, so how could they not be grateful?
Witnessing this scene, Xu Xiao and Song He couldn’t help but curse in their hearts. How could they not understand that Ye Qing was trying to win favors and increase his prestige?
If the leaders of these factions could walk out of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect alive today, they would definitely be grateful to Ye Qing, and the power of the Archaic Mysteries Sect would also rise to a higher level.
Even if Qin Jue was ruthless and killed all these leaders, Ye Qing wouldn’t suffer any losses. It could be said that there were only benefits and no harm to his move.
Xu Xiao and Song He also planned on doing the same thing, but they had hesitated for a few seconds and Ye Qing beat them to it.
“That’s right, Senior. These factions have all contributed to the Plain Field War. I hope Senior can show mercy.”
Xu Xiao gritted his teeth and agreed.
Although he didn’t get the initiative, he couldn’t let Ye Qing take all the advantage.
Seeing this, Song He immediately followed closely behind. “That’s right. Senior, please show mercy.”
Everyone was overjoyed. The sect masters of the Three Major Sects had spoken up for them at the same time. Would Qin Jue let them off this time?
“Oh? Are you telling me what to do?”
Qin Jue smiled.
Hearing this, the three of them were shocked and hurriedly shook their heads. “We wouldn’t dare.”
It definitely wouldn’t be worth it for them to lose their lives because of these guys.
“Is that so?”
How could Qin Jue not see what the three of them were thinking? But he actually had no intention of killing these leaders.
The strong had always been feared in the world of cultivation. These faction leaders did not owe the Xuanyi Mountain Sect anything, so it was normal for them to have acted that way.
If Qin Jue hadn’t appeared in time, Ye Qing and the others would probably have switched to Luo Feng’s side.
After all, there was no need for them to pay with their lives for a faction they were not familiar with.
However, it would be impossible for the leaders of these factions to befriend the Xuanyi Mountain Sect in the future.
In any case, there was no need for the Xuanyi Mountain Sect to be nice to them now. After all, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect just needed to develop in peace.
“Forget it, I won’t pursue the matter.” Qin Jue waved his hand and said indifferently.
Ye Qing was stunned.
Qin Jue was puzzled
“What? Would you rather I pursue it?” Qin Jue narrowed his eyes and smiled.
“Did you hear that? Hurry up and leave!”
Stunned, Ye Qing turned around and shouted angrily.
“Yes, yes, yes. Thank you, Senior, for sparing our lives.”
With these words, everyone immediately scattered like birds and beasts, feeling as if they had just survived a calamity. Then, they boarded their air-transportation spirit artifacts and quickly left, wishing that they could get as far away as possible.
“Thank you, Senior.”
In fact, Ye Qing did have the intention of winning favors and increasing his prestige, but it was not limited to that.
It had to be known that more than half of the high-level cultivators of the Southern Land had gathered in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect today. If all of them died here, who knew what kind of upheaval it would cause? Therefore, in order to stabilize the situation, Ye Qing had to step forward.
“What about you guys?”
Qin Jue frowned. “Do you want to be invited to stay for dinner?”
Ye Qing originally wanted to say more, but seeing Qin Jue’s impatient appearance, he could only forcefully endure it and fly away with Xu Xiao and Song He.
Since Qin Jue had already ordered them to leave, it would be rude of them not to leave now.
However, the three of them knew that from today onwards, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect would become the supreme existence of the Southern Land. Even if the Three Major Sects worked together, they would still be incomparable!
The celebration that lasted for half a day finally ended. Things in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect returned to normal.
Qin Jue stretched lazily and leisurely returned to the cliff. He no longer needed to care since Bai Ye had said he would handle the rest.
“Uncle-Grandmaster, what happened just now?” Luo Weiwei could not help but ask.
Even Luo Weiwei, who was only at the Profound Stage, had been able to sense the powerful spirit energy fluctuations.
Beside him, Shen Zhiwen also cast a curious gaze. He originally wanted to go over and take a look, but he was afraid that Xu Xiao would discover him, so he could only obediently stay behind.
“Oh, someone came for you, but I chased them away.”
Qin Jue didn’t plan to hide it from Luo Weiwei. It was time to tell her.
“Looking for me?”
Luo Weiwei was at a loss. Her only relative in this world was her mother, who had already passed away. Apart from her mother, who else would come to find her?
Without waiting for Luo Weiwei to speak, Qin Jue asked first, “Do you still know what your father looks like?”
Luo Weiwei shook her head, feeling even more at a loss.
“I haven’t seen Father since I can remember.”
To the girl, the word “father” was very unfamiliar and did not ring any bells. Even her own mother never mentioned it in front of her, so when Qin Jue mentioned her father, Luo Weiwei was a little dazed.
“Oh? Then did your mother tell you the secret of the ‘Pure Yang True Technique’?” Qin Jue said meaningfully.
“The secret of the ‘Pure Yang True Technique’?” Luo Weiwei muttered to herself.
In the past half a year in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, she had already learned that the “Pure Yang True Technique” was a cultivation technique cultivated by a Saint Stage expert.
Regarding this, Luo Weiwei was also very puzzled. Her mother was only an ordinary person, so how could she have the Pure Yang True Technique?
Seeing that Luo Weiwei still couldn’t figure it out, Qin Jue simply went straight to the point and said, “Actually, the Pure Yang Saint is your father.”
Luo Weiwei’s eyes suddenly widened, thinking that she had misheard.
“The Pure Yang Saint is your father.” Qin Jue repeated.
“How is that possible?”
Luo Weiwei found it unbelievable. Her father was a Saint Stage expert?
What a joke!
If that was the case, why would her mother die of illness?
And if so, she never would have taken the path she took. After all, Luo Weiwei only risked her life to join the Xuanyi Mountain Sect because she used to be bullied and wanted to become stronger.
“Do you really think it’s impossible?” Qin Jue answered with a question.
“I… don’t know.”
After a moment of silence, Luo Weiwei’s face was filled with hesitation.
