Southern Land, Xuanyi Mountain
The Sun fell in the west, emitting a blood-red light on the Xuanyi Mountain cliff as it passed through thousands of kilometers.
Qin Jue lay on the husky as stretched lazily before opening his eyes.
“Ha, that feels good.”
Patting the husky, Qin Jue couldn’t help but praise.
As expected of a Heaven Stage fiend beast, its body was so comfortable for sleeping. Perhaps in the future, he could consider doing this often.
Glancing up at the sky, Qin Jue prepared to get up and cook something to eat. Then, he planned on killing some time before continuing to sleep.
At this moment, a figure suddenly appeared in the distance and headed straight for Qin Jue.
When the figure got closer, Qin Jue realized that it was Luo Xun.
However, the current Luo Xun was indeed a little miserable. His face was bruised and swollen, almost no different from a pig’s head. He also had two panda-like dark eye circles, making him look exceptionally comical.
Seeing this, Qin Jue was dumbfounded. “What’s wrong with you?”
Before he finished speaking, Qin Jue spread out his spirit sense, but he couldn’t find any aura fluctuations that belonged to a Saint Stage expert.
Could it be that the other party was killed by Luo Xun?
No, even if the other party had been killed, Qin Jue should still be able to sense it.
But if there were no other Saint Stage experts, how could Luo Xun have been beaten up like this?
Qin Jue knew it definitely wasn’t caused by Luo Weiwei.
After all, Luo Weiwei was only at the Profound Stage. Even if Luo Xun removed all his defenses and stood there motionless, it was impossible for Luo Weiwei to cause him any harm.
“Um… I was the one who caused these injuries.”
Rubbing his hands, Luo Xun said awkwardly.
Qin Jue: “???”
Qin Jue was puzzled
He beat himself up?
Did Luo Xun have such a hobby?
“Senior, don’t misunderstand. It’s actually because…”
Seeing Qin Jue’s strange expression, Luo Xun hurriedly explained the cause and effect.
Qin Jue was suddenly enlightened.
Qin Jue was glad that Luo Xun did not have masochistic tendencies.
“But why are you here?”
Qin Jue was puzzled.
Shouldn’t Luo Xun be with Luo Weiwei at this time, discussing their relationship as father and daughter?
“I promised Weiwei that I would protect her well, so…”
Taking a deep breath, Luo Xun said solemnly, “I want to join the Xuanyi Mountain Sect!”
Qin Jue was stunned and thought that he had misheard.
Luo Xun wanted to join the Xuanyi Mountain Sect?
“Aren’t you at the Saint Stage?”
“I asked Weiwei. She doesn’t want to leave this place for the time being, so I also want to join the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Is that alright?”
“In addition, if Senior has any requests, I will definitely do as you say and won’t have any complaints.” Luo Xun probed.
If it were any other factions, they would definitely agree without even thinking if a Saint Stage asked to join them.
But in Qin Jue’s eyes, whether the other party was the Yellow Stage or the Saint Stage, there was no difference.
Moreover, with Luo Xun’s strength, how could he possibly join a “remote” faction in the Southern Land over such a matter. Was he really willing to be controlled by others?
“I think you just don’t want to return to the Pure Yang Sacred Land.” As if seeing through Luo Xun’s thoughts, Qin Jue said meaningfully.
After all, Luo Xun did not know that Qin Jue had already asked Long Zhen to warn the Pure Yang Sacred Land.
After witnessing Qin Jue’s strength with his own eyes, Luo Xun knew very well that his safest choice was to stay in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect for the time being.
“I knew I couldn’t hide it from Senior.”
Luo Xun smiled bitterly.
“Okay, I’ll allow it.”
Qin Jue changed the topic and nodded.
Although he knew that Luo Xun was doing this to avoid returning to the Pure Yang Sacred Land, he wasn’t going to chase him away either.
Luo Xun was stunned.
He agreed just like that?
Without any time to think, Luo Xun immediately bowed and said, “Thank you, Senior!”
Nodding his head, Qin Jue said seriously, “From now on, you’re a member of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, but there are a few things I have to tell you in advance.”
“Senior, please speak.” Luo Xun said seriously.
“Firstly, you are not allowed to act impulsively… cough cough, what I mean is that you have to obey the Sect Master’s orders.”
“Secondly, you are not allowed to attack our sect’s cultivators without permission.”
“Thirdly, and most importantly, don’t cause any trouble.”
After hearing Qin Jue’s words, Luo Xun was slightly surprised. “That’s all?”
Compared to the Pure Yang Sacred Land, these three rules were nothing.
“Don’t worry, Sect Master, I will definitely not violate these three rules!”
Luo Cheng was full of confidence.
“Wait, you are mistaken. I’m not the sect master.”
Qin Jue interrupted Luo Xun with a wave of his hand.
“Ah? Senior isn’t the sect master?”
Luo Xun’s eyes widened.
If someone as powerful as Qin Jue wasn’t even the sect master, then how just powerful was this sect master?
Luo Xun wondered if he was a peak Great Sage Stage expert, or perhaps someone even stronger than that…
Luo Xun didn’t dare to imagine it.
“Then… May I see the sect master?”
“Oh, no problem. I’ll call him over now.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Qin Jue gestured with his hand, and Bai Ye instantly passed through space and appeared in front of the two.
Bai Ye’s hands were spread out in front of him, emitting spirit energy. It seemed as if he was in the middle of refining pills. However, at this moment, only the person had been transported and not the furnace.
“He’s the sect master. Did you get a good look?” Qin Jue said indifferently.
Luo Xun was stunned. This sect master didn’t seem to be anything special. He was just an ordinary Supreme Stage expert.
Luo Xun started to suspect that the reason he couldn’t tell was probably because the other party had deliberately concealed his cultivation.
In fact, he was certain that was the reason.
Thinking like this, Luo Xun couldn’t help but sigh.
Luo Xun was shocked by the number of powerful experts in an insignificant place like the Southern Land and started thinking that this sect might even be on par with the Immortal Sacred Land.
As expected, no matter how strong one became, there would always be someone better. Luo Xun had finally understood this, after having dominated over the Southern Land in the past.
However, what Luo Xun didn’t know was that when he dominated the Southern Land, Qin Jue and Bai Ye weren’t even born yet.
Bai Ye blinked in confusion and was about to speak when Qin Jue waved his hand. Immediately, Bai Ye returned to the main hall.
The Xuanyi Mountain Sect shook. Then, a ball of black smoke rose from the direction of the main hall, looking sinister and terrifying.
Without a doubt, the furnace must have exploded.
Qin Jue mourned in his heart. How could he have known that Bai Ye was actually refining pills.
He hoped that everyone was alright.
“Alright, stay near Luo Weiwei for now.” Qin Jue ordered.
Luo Xun hesitated for a moment but did not leave.
“If there’s anything else, just say it.” Qin Jue said indifferently.
“Thank you for taking care of Luo Weiwei during this period of time, Senior. I’m eternally grateful!”
Unlike before, Luo Xun was now thanking him from the bottom of his heart.
Luo Xun had already learned from Luo Weiwei that a large part of the reason why she had been able to advance so quickly and successfully over the past six months was because of Qin Jue’s protection.
Now, Qin Jue had even killed the First Elder and helped him reunite with his daughter. So how could Luo Xun not be grateful?
After Luo Xun left, the cliff returned to normal. However, soon, a dusty figure in ragged clothes ran over.
Upon closer inspection, it was none other than Bai Ye!
“Ahhh! It’s all your fault. My ‘Supreme Pill of the Nine Heavens and Ten Earths’ was destroyed. You have to compensate me!”
Qin Jue :”…”
