Chapter 231: Black Forest Explosion

Luo Weiwei stretched out her palm and condensed a milky-white flame that emitted a scorching aura. Even the surrounding temperature increased.
“What is this?”
Qin Jue was puzzled.
“Pure Yang True Flame.”
The girl said proudly, “It’s a Heavenly Flame Father gave me. It can temper pure Yang energy and speed up cultivation.”
“It can also be used to attack enemies.”
As she spoke, the girl waved her hand, and milky-white flames immediately swept out, directly burning a stone to ashes.
In the next moment, the flames suddenly extinguished, and fine sweat seeped out from the girl’s forehead.
Clearly, controlling the Pure Yang True Flame consumed a lot of her energy.
“I haven’t fully mastered it yet, so I’m a little out of practice.” Luo Weiwei wiped her sweat and said helplessly.
“Take your time. There’s no hurry.”
Qin Jue shook his head indifferently.
Unlike most web novels, there was no ranking for special flames in this world. Many of the special flames were even developed by humans.
For example, the Pure Yang True Flame was actually a flame that Luo Xun had forcefully condensed with the spirit energy in his body. Furthermore, only cultivators who cultivated the Pure Yang True Technique could use it.
When Luo Weiwei cultivated to the Legendary Stage, the Pure Yang True Flame would automatically transform into spirit energy that fused into her dantian to help her break through to the Saint Stage.
Luo Xun had put in a lot of effort for his daughter’s cultivation.
Under his nurturing, he believed that it wouldn’t be long before Luo Weiwei could step into the Earth Stage or even the Heaven Stage.
The two of them chatted for a moment longer before Luo Weiwei gradually entered a cultivation state. Qin Jue continued to sit by the cliff and drink as usual.
“Master, I want to drink too.”
At this time, Yun Xi flew over and blinked her two beautiful big eyes, staring straight at Qin Jue. She looked as if she was going to cry if Qin Jue didn’t give her a drink.
After a while, Qin Jue finally couldn’t take it anymore and could only take out a pot of spirit wine and hand it to Yun Xi.
“Thank you, Master!”
Yun Xi hugged the wine pot that was even bigger than her and smiled.
Ten minutes later, Yun Xi lay next to Qin Jue drunk as mud and fell asleep. The strand of hair on her head swayed left and right, making her look exceptionally cute.
“What are you thinking about when you’re asleep?”
Qin Jue smiled bitterly.
According to his knowledge, Yun Xi’s strand of hair would only sway left and right when she was pondering something. In other words, Yun Xi was very likely dreaming right now.
Time flew by, and in the blink of an eye, it was already afternoon.
Qin Jue drunkenly opened the spirit tablet and prepared to update himself with the recent situation in the Southern Land.
Ever since news of a Saint Stage expert spread from the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, all cultivators would descend from the sky when they passed by this place and choose to walk instead to show their respect.
Although Qin Jue never cared about this, in the eyes of others, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had already become the “sacred land” of the Southern Land. If it weren’t for Bai Ye’s strict screening, who knew how many people would have joined.
Even so, there were still many martial arts clans that traveled thousands of kilometers to send their geniuses over.
Among them, many of the new disciples escorted by Luo Xun were from Martial Dao clans.
Of course, this didn’t affect Qin Jue at all.
This was because he had long used his status as the honorary vice sect master to list the cliff as a forbidden area. Without his permission, no one was allowed to approach.
Therefore, it was basically impossible for someone else to barge in, like how Luo Weiwei once did.
Opening the Spiritnet’s Southern Land panel, five words appeared in front of Qin Jue: “The Black Forest has exploded!”
Explosion in the Black Forest?
The first thing Qin Jue thought of were those new disciples who had gone to the Black Forest to train. He wondered if they were fine.
In addition, why did the Black Forest explode in the first place?
In the Southern Land, the Black Forest was equivalent to the Demon Beast Mountain Range of the Central Continent. Not only was it huge, but it was also extremely dangerous.
Many itinerant cultivators and low-level factions would go there to train.
This was especially true for itinerant cultivators. Whenever they lacked cultivation resources, they would often choose to enter the Black Forest to pluck spirit herbs or hunt fiend beasts in exchange for cultivation resources.
If the Black Forest exploded, it would probably affect half of the Southern Land.
But soon, Qin Jue understood what was going on.
So the so-called explosion was another type of explosion.
“You might not believe me, but I was fighting a Heaven Stage fiend beast in the Black Forest just now. Suddenly, a wave of spirit energy passed through, and that Heaven Stage fiend beast was instantly destroyed, leaving only its head. Even its fiend crystal was shattered into pieces.”
A cultivator posted.
“Me too. However, I had slightly better luck and my fiend beast’s fiend crystal wasn’t destroyed.”
Another cultivator replied with two shocked expressions.
“How did that happen?”
“I saw it with my own eyes…”
Almost all the comments were discussing the spirit energy, and many cultivators even said that they had witnessed it.
Some said that it was caused by a fight between high-level cultivators, while others said that it was a phenomenon of heaven and earth. There was even speculation that it was caused by a secret treasure that had suddenly appeared.
In short, there were all sorts of opinions.
That was until a picture of the Black Forest appeared.
It was a picture that was shot from above and was very clear.
In the picture, a wide path in the middle of the endless Black Forest could be seen. Wherever it passed, regardless of whether it was the mountains, rocks, or trees, everything was wiped out, forming a visible gully that stretched into the horizon.
It had to be known that not even a Legendary Stage expert could achieve something like this.
“Heavens, is this really something a human is capable of?”
“Good thing I got out fast or I would have died.”
“Wuwuwu, my new mount was killed.”
Almost the moment he saw this picture, Qin Jue knew that it was Luo Xun’s doing, because there were clearly charred marks on both sides of the gully that matched Luo Xun’s spirit energy attributes.
Coupled with the fact that Luo Xun was currently protecting the new disciples in the Black Forest, who else could it be other than him?
He just didn’t know why Luo Xun would do such a thing.
After thinking for a long time, Qin Jue couldn’t figure it out. He simply passed the picture to Luo Xun and then asked, “Did you do it?”
The two of them had added each other as friends on their spirit tablets, so they could contact each other at any time.
After a while, Luo Xun replied, “Yes.”
Without waiting for Qin Jue to continue asking, Luo Xun continued, “Sorry, I didn’t do it on purpose. A Profound Stage fiend beast appeared and was attacking the new disciples. In a moment of desperation, I punched it. I didn’t expect to have used that much strength, and this was the result.”
Qin Jue :”…”
In a moment of desperation, he punched through the entire Black Forest…
Who knew how many unlucky people died because of this punch…
If this had happened in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, the outcome would be unimaginable.
“Ahem, be careful next time.”
Qin Jue was speechless.
In fact, Qin Jue had experienced a similar situation five years ago. At that time, his strength had suddenly increased greatly and he couldn’t control it.
In the end, he had to use restrictions to forcefully seal his strength before he could get used to it.
This matter reminded Qin Jue that even if Luo Xun was willing to take orders, he was still a “time bomb” that could explode anytime. He had to think of a way to restrict his strength.
Thinking of this, Qin Jue fell into deep thought.
