As Long Xiaoyu spoke, Qin Jue and Long Zhen quickly learned about the Martial Sacred Hall.
It turned out that the Martial Sacred Hall did not occupy a world like the other factions. Instead, it was located in the void.
Apparently, Shi Ying was only an ordinary member and there were stronger higher-ups in the Martial Sacred Hall. They also learned that the Martial Sacred Hall was a faction with enormous power, able to destroy an entire realm with little effort.
As for why they had become enemies with the White Dragon Race, it was naturally because they wanted to compete for cultivation resources. Just like how Xuanyi Mountain Sect and the Stargate Sect had once competed for resources.
However, at their level, the cultivation resources they needed were far from what a single faction could provide. Therefore, they often fought each other for control of an entire realm.
Moreover, in the eyes of many cultivators, the Dragon Race could be said to have an abundance of treasures, especially blood essence. Blood essence was extremely precious as not only could it be used to increase one’s cultivation, but it could also change one’s physique and increase one’s talent.
There was once a higher-up of the Martial Sacred Hall who was approaching the end of his lifespan so he went and killed a White Dragon Race elder. This higher-up then refined the other party’s flesh and blood into medicinal pills and turned the bones into weapons. After that, the higher-up’s strength instantly rose explosively, and he became invincible among those of the same realm.
If not for the fact that he had been targeted and killed by experts of the White Dragon Race, he would have been able to become even stronger and live for tens of thousands of years.
Ultimately, this matter made other cultivators realize the value of the dragon race’s flesh and blood. From then on, the White Dragon Race and the Martial Sacred Hall also became enemies.
If members of the two factions were to meet, a fight would be inevitable. In short, one of the two sides needed to die.
As the divine maiden of the White Dragon Race, Long Xiaoyu was the descendant with the purest bloodline in the White Dragon Race for almost a thousand years. Her natural talent was top-notch, and her potential was limitless. Someone like her was very likely to change the situation in this void in the future, so she was inevitably targeted by the Martial Divine Hall.
This time, she had been ambushed by Shi Ying and all of her White Dragon Guards were killed. If it weren’t for Qin Jue, Long Xiaoyu would most likely have died as well.
At this point, Long Xiaoyu said gratefully again, “Thank you, Senior, again, for saving my life.”
After listening to the girl’s description, Qin Jue pondered.
The relationship between the White Dragon Race and the Martial Sacred Hall was actually like the relationship between the Spirit Central World’s fiend beasts and the human cultivators.
Even if fiend beasts hid in the mountains and did not come out, human cultivators would still think of ways to get to them to obtain their fiend crystals. The Demon-Slaying Gathering, for example, would be held by the Four Major Sects every year.
If not for this, the fiend beasts of the Death Spirit Valley would not have needed to join forces with the Purple Demon Clan and launch an attack against the Four Major Sects.
The difference was that the White Dragon Race was a divine beast and was even more noble. They were born with intelligence that was not inferior to humans.
On the other hand, fiend beasts could only barely compare to humans after advancing to the Supreme Stage.
Perhaps Qin Jue wasn’t interested in fiend crystals, but he had eaten countless fiend beasts in the past. When he went to the Central Continent, he even deliberately passed through the Demonic Beast Mountain Range. It was unknown how many fiend beasts had died to fill his stomach.
Thinking like this, Qin Jue subconsciously looked at Long Xiaoyu. To be honest, he was quite interested in finding out what dragon meat tasted like.
Sensing Qin Jue’s gaze, Long Xiaoyu shivered for no reason and hurriedly revealed a sweet smile in an attempt to resolve the awkwardness.
“Never would I have thought that there would be such a powerful existence in this void.”
Long Zhen exclaimed in surprise. Then, as if recalling something, he frowned and said, “That’s not right. If there were really so many powerful factions, why would they tolerate the Asura World plundering the cultivation resources of other worlds?”
“Eh? You know about the Asura World?”
Long Xiaoyu was stunned.
Long Zhen pointed at Qin Jue and said matter-of-factly, “This person sitting in front of you has personally gone to the Asura World.”
Long Xiaoyu was even more surprised. “According to what I know, there should be an expert at the seventh realm of the Great Void Stage in the Asura World.”
“You also know about the Asura World?”
Qin Jue raised his eyebrows. “To be precise, he was at the Eighth Great Void Stage, but he’s dead now.”
After a pause, he added, “The entire Asura World is gone as well.”
Long Xiaoyu’s expression was sluggish. She could not help but ask, “Were you the one who caused it?”
Qin Jue nodded indifferently, as if it was an insignificant matter.
Taking a deep breath, Long Xiaoyu found it difficult to calm the shock in her heart. This was definitely the day that her expression had changed the most in nearly a thousand years.
After a long while, Long Xiaoyu finally recovered and said, “In fact, the Asura World has long attracted the attention of top factions, but since they only invade low-level dimensions…”
Without waiting for Qin Jue to ask, Long Xiaoyu immediately said, “By low-level dimension, I’m referring to a realm without a Great Void Stage expert.”
“In addition, worlds with experts below the sixth realm of the Great Void Stage are called intermediate-level dimensions. And worlds with experts above the sixth realm of the Great Void Stage are called high-level dimensions.”
“Although the Asura World is a high-level dimension, it only invades ordinary low or intermediate-level dimensions. Therefore, no faction has ever been bothered by it. I didn’t expect it to be destroyed by Senior.”
To those top factions, only high-level dimensions were important, so why would they care about low-level dimensions?
Long Zhen understood.
On the other side, Qin Jue fell into silence. After all this time, if it weren’t for him and Long Zhen, the Spirit Central World would at most be considered a low-level dimension.
It seemed that the vastness of this void was far from what he imagined.
“One last question. Do you know about the Heavenly Palace?” Qin Jue finally asked the question he cared about the most.
Long Xiaoyu pondered for a moment and shook her head. “I’ve never heard of it.”
Hearing this, Qin Jue frowned. Even Long Xiaoyu didn’t know. It seemed that the Heavenly Palace very likely didn’t belong to this void.
“Heavenly Palace? What Heavenly Palace? Brother Qin, what are you talking about?”
Long Zhen had a blank expression. Qin Jue had never told him about the Heavenly Palace.
Qin Jue couldn’t be bothered to explain. He flicked his finger and a golden light immediately shot into the space between Long Zhen’s eyebrows, sharing with him the memory of the bird projection.
After a long while, Long Zhen said in a deep voice, “Are we being targeted by this Heavenly Palace?”
Qin Jue analyzed seriously, “According to Long Xiaoyu, the Spirit Central World is only a low-level dimension and it wouldn’t be worth it for them to travel such a long distance.”
“Perhaps the Heavenly Palace has already been destroyed.”
Long Zhen was speechless, but after thinking about it carefully, it was indeed possible. If the Heavenly Palace had long been destroyed, it would make sense for Long Xiaoyu to not know anything about it.
In any case, no matter what that Heavenly Palace was, as long as Qin Jue was here, there was no need for them to be afraid!
“Senior…” At this moment, Long Xiaoyu spoke weakly.
“Alright, you can leave now.”
Qin Jue looked up and waved his hand.
Long Xiaoyu was stunned.
He wanted her to leave just like that?
“What? Don’t you want to go back?”
Long Xiaoyu hesitantly took out a jade tablet from her storage ring and handed it to Qin Jue. “This is my keepsake. If Senior wants to find me, you can use this tablet to enter the White Dragon World.”
