Chapter 240: Foreign Thing
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
At night, the starlight was dazzling and hung on the horizon like silk, giving off a very relaxed and happy feeling. One couldn’t help but enjoy this simple calm.
A cool breeze blew and brushed past Qin Jue’s long hair. His white clothes fluttered in the wind, making him look like an immortal.
At this moment, Qin Jue was sitting cross-legged on the blue stone, his expression indifferent, as if he was thinking about something.
Luo Weiwei had long left, and Su Yan had not come again because of the internal affairs of the sect.
The husky and Yun Xi had also entered a cultivation state and were slowly absorbing the surrounding spirit qi.
After a long while, Qin Jue opened his palm, and the fist-sized mountain peak appeared.
Although Qin Jue used his divine ability to forcefully shrink this mountain peak, its weight didn’t change. If thrown out, it could easily kill a Supreme Stage expert.
Even a Legendary Stage expert could be severely injured if they were careless with something like this.
And this was even before the enhancement of spirit energy.
At this moment, Qin Jue planned to refine it into a weapon.
In fact, with Qin Jue’s strength, he didn’t need a weapon at all. In any case, no one could withstand his punch.
However, wouldn’t that be a little too monotonous? Just think about how handsome it would be if he suddenly took out a huge mountain while fighting others.
In fact, Qin Jue didn’t know much about weapon forging.
Although he had successfully refined two super spirit artifacts, he had only used the simplest “Five Elements Formation” to refine both the Supreme Stage weapon and the sacred artifact. In fact, both weapons had been refined with forceful condensations of spirit energy. Even now, Qin Jue lacked much of the basic knowledge.
Therefore, Qin Jue planned to learn a few more runes this time.
Thinking of this, several more books appeared in front of Qin Jue. They were all secret rune manuals he had plundered before.
Compared to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, the runes and cultivation techniques possessed by the top experts were undoubtedly of a higher level. These top experts would even use many golden runes and even sacred runes used to refine sacred artifacts.
Next, Qin Jue began to read the books seriously.
After an unknown period of time, when Qin Jue closed the last secret rune manual, countless complicated and obscure lines had already been outlined in his mind. In his mind, each line was unpredictable, as if they contained infinite power.
In the next moment, the black mountain in Qin Jue’s palm was suddenly wrapped in golden light. Many dense golden lines appeared and emitted powerful energy fluctuations, causing space to slightly distort, as if it would collapse at any moment.
In the end, even the ground could not withstand this force and began to tremble.
Helpless, Qin Jue could only use a barrier to isolate himself to avoid affecting the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
Time flew by, and in the blink of an eye, it was already late at night. The moonlight passed through thousands of kilometers and shone on Qin Jue’s body, making it seem like he was covered in a thin white veil.
At this moment, there was a dull bang as the golden light shattered, revealing the pitch-black mountain peak inside. There seemed to be no changes.
But Qin Jue knew that he had succeeded.
At this moment, there were at least a dozen runes condensed in this fist-sized pitch-black mountain, including the sacred runes used to refine sacred artifacts!
In a way, it was even stronger than a sacred artifact. It was just that Qin Jue had yet to give it a soul.
“Now, I just have to find a place to try it out.”
After pondering for a moment, Qin Jue once again arrived at the plain field at the border between the Southern Land and the Western Land. Because of the destruction caused by the gold-plated Gatling gun, there were pitfalls everywhere and no living beings. It was simply the perfect place for testing the power of newly-refined weapons.
With a light wave of Qin Jue’s palm, the pitch-black mountain immediately flew out and quickly enlarged, turning into a huge mountain that blotted out the sun as it fell heavily!
In an instant, the ground within the surrounding 50,000 kilometers shook. The aftershock could be felt everywhere in the Southern Land and the Western Land, startling countless birds, beasts, and cultivators.
Then, the ground trembled as cracks appeared. These cracks continued to spread further and further. The originally devastated plain field instantly collapsed, forming a bottomless pit.
If Qin Jue hadn’t pulled back in time, the mountain peak would have continued to smash down until it pierced through the entire Spirit Central World.
Such power could be said to be incredibly shocking. Qin Jue believed that even a Saint Stage, no, a Grand Saint Stage expert, wouldn’t be able to withstand it.
Most importantly, Qin Jue had never activated the runes from beginning to end. It was the weight of the mountain alone that had caused this. Qin Jue suddenly wondered how terrifying it would be if he activated the runes.
In any case, he was certain that this mountain peak was definitely stronger than the gold-plated Gatling gun. Qin Jue looked forward to using it when the time came.
“Right, I’ll need to give it a name first.”
Qin Jue fell into a dilemma. He had always struggled with names. After hesitating for a long time, he finally said, “I’ll call you Black Mountain!”
If the Black Mountain was alive, it would definitely rise up and fight Qin Jue to the death. What kind of name was this?
However, Qin Jue didn’t care about this. He directly put away the black mountain and disappeared.
Not long after he left, there was suddenly a series of air-piercing sounds in the distance. Then, more than ten high-level cultivators rushed over. When they saw the scene in front of them, they were immediately dumbfounded and stunned on the spot.
“Did… a god pass by here?”
The next day, sunlight shone down, illuminating the Xuanyi Mountain Sect as the living beings started waking up. Thousands of disciples all got out of bed one by one and were full of vitality.
As the saying went, the plan for the day lay in the morning. The morning was the best time of the day for cultivators to increase their blood qi, allowing them to speed up the growth of their muscles and bones.
The low-level disciples were especially alert and did not dare to slack off in the slightest, or else they would very likely be left far behind by their peers. Many of them had on serious expression, worrying that they would become laughing stocks if they lagged behind.
Only the cliff remained as quiet as usual.
“Master, Master, wake up.”
“Uh… what’s wrong?”
Qin Jue groggily woke up and frowned.
“I’m hungry.” Yun Xi lay on Qin Jue’s chest and pouted as she said aggrievedly.
Qin Jue :”…”
For some reason, he felt like he was Yun Xi’s nanny instead of her master. When she was hungry, he would cook for her and when he was thirsty, he would give her water to drink. Qin Jue wondered if there was any justice left in the world.
Suddenly, Qin Jue realized that Yun Xi had just eaten last night. He was puzzled at how quickly Yun Xi got hungry given that she was an Earth Stage cultivator.
Seeing that Qin Jue was silent, Yun Xi hurriedly rubbed her head fiercely. “Master, I’m hungry.”
Sighing, Qin Jue helplessly said, “Alright.”
Because Su Yan didn’t come today, Qin Jue had no choice but to do the cooking himself. Not long after, a large piece of roasted meat was made. Qin Jue divided it into three portions. One serving for the husky, one serving for Yun Xi, and one for himself.
Just as Qin Jue was about to take out the spirit wine and drink it alongside his meal, the distant sky suddenly turned crimson!
Qin Jue was puzzled
Without waiting for Qin Jue to react, a large amount of flames turned into a stream of light that fell from the sky, emitting a blazing temperature. Even though this all happened 10,000 meters away, the heat was still unbearable.
Mu Ziqi and Luo Xun sensed the commotion and immediately flew up, their faces filled with shock.
“What is happening?”
“I don’t know. My spirit sense can’t approach it.”
“What a terrifying spirit energy fluctuation!”
It was not only Mu Ziqi and Luo Xun. All the Southern Land cultivators raised their heads and looked over. This aura was even more terrifying than the energy that erupted from the First Elder of the Pure Yang Sacred Land, Luo Shan!
Amidst the flames that filled the sky, a dazzling white light suddenly fell, shaking the heavens and the earth!
