Long Xiaoyu, who had recovered from her injuries, naturally could not continue to stay in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. After all, she was carrying the Dragon Pearl with her this time.
Moreover, she had lost contact with the others for so long. It was unknown what kind of commotion she had already aroused.
With those elders’ personalities, if they knew that something had happened to her, they would probably immediately blame the Martial Sacred Hall and start a large-scale war. Therefore, she had to return quickly.
Another thing was that Long Xiaoyu had learned from Shi Ying that there was a traitor in the White Dragon Race. Therefore, she was eager to find the traitor.
After handing the jade tablet to Qin Jue, Long Xiaoyu immediately flew up, turned into a stream of light, and soared into the sky, disappearing.
With the death of Shi Ying, no one knew her exact location anymore. There was no need for her to worry about being attacked by another expert of the Martial Sacred Hall midway.
Watching Long Xiaoyu leave, Long Zhen was slightly worried.
“Are we letting her go just like that?”
“What else can we do? Kill her?” Qin Jue asked back.
“Uh… not really. But if she goes back and exposes us, wouldn’t it be very troublesome?”
“Hehe, don’t worry. I’ve already reminded her.”
Qin Jue played with the jade tablet and said meaningfully, “If she doesn’t keep her promise, then her memory about us will be forcefully erased.”
When Long Xiaoyu left, Qin Jue deliberately used a spirit energy transmission to tell her not to speak of this matter. He also left his spirit sense on her.
If Long Xiaoyu returned and wanted to tell the others about Qin Jue, then Qin Jue’s spirit sense would directly erase the relevant memories, leaving nothing behind.
“Hahaha, as expected of Brother Qin. You’re indeed powerful.” Long Zhen praised.
Qin Jue :”…”
“However, speaking of which, there are actually so many experts in this void. I should start cultivating properly.”
Ever since he stepped into the Great Void Stage, Long Zhen had never had an opponent in the Spirit Central World until Qin Jue appeared.
For thousands of years, besides being restricted by the environment of the Spirit Central World, Long Zhen had been quite relaxed. He was obsessed with tinkering with new things and rarely went into seclusion.
Even so, after refining the dark spirit energy, he still advanced to the fifth realm of the Great Void Stage. It could be seen how terrifying his talent was.
It was fine if he didn’t want to improve in the past. However, now that so many powerful experts suddenly appeared, if Long Zhen didn’t work hard, he would probably become a burden for Qin Jue.
However, it is important to remember that before Qin Jue appeared, Long Zhen was the absolute main character of the Spirit Central World.
“Haha, it’s good that you have such thoughts.”
Qin Jue smiled.
After all, the stronger Long Zhen was, the easier Qin Jue’s life would be.
“Here, this is for you.”
Qin Jue flicked his finger and a storage ring fell into Long Zhen’s hand.
“What is it?”
Long Zhen was curious.
“Inside, you will find some cultivation resources that will be helpful to you.”
Long Zhen didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry. “No need. I have a lot.”
“Is that so? These cultivation resources were used by an eighth realm Great Void Stage expert.” Qin Jue said indifferently.
Long Zhen was overjoyed.
He indeed had many cultivation resources, but because his realm was too high, those cultivation resources were already of little use to him.
If it was the cultivation resources of an eighth realm Great Void Stage expert, it would definitely be very helpful for his cultivation.
“Wait, could this storage ring be from the Asura World?”
“Of course. That Luo Changge is the strongest person I’ve encountered so far.” Qin Jue said matter-of-factly.
“Hehe, in that case, I won’t stand on ceremony.”
After a few seconds of silence, Long Zhen grinned.
With these cultivation resources, he was confident that he could break through to the sixth Great Void Stage in a short period of time.
“You’re welcome. If there’s anything in the future, you can just act as my shield.”
Long Zhen was speechless.
At the same time, outside the Spirit Central World.
Long Xiaoyu was incomparably fast. She instantly passed through the boundary of the Spirit Central World’s realm and arrived in the void.
Looking at the Spirit Central World, Long Xiaoyu circulated her spirit energy and drew a mysterious rune in front of her. She planned to inform the elders in advance to prevent any accidents from happening again.
This was a special method of contact for members of the White Dragon Race. They could communicate no matter how far away they were, but it would take a long time for them to draw the runes. If not for how long it took, Long Xiaoyu wouldn’t have been pursued by the Shi Ying for more than ten days.
Ten minutes later, the rune finally took shape, turning into light that fused into the void. One side was connected to Long Xiaoyu, and the other side led to an unknown place.
Before Long Xiaoyu could speak, an extremely anxious voice sounded from the other end. “Xiaoyu? Is it Xiaoyu?”
Clearly, the other party was very excited.
“Grandpa Yan, it’s me.” Long Xiaoyu answered.
“Are you okay?” The other party asked.
“Hu, it’s good that you’re fine. Where are you now? I’ll send someone to pick you up immediately.”
Long Yan heaved a sigh of relief.
“No need. I’ll be back soon.”
“Alright, where have you been for the past ten days? Why haven’t we been able to contact you? The Patriarch and the other elders are about to die of anxiety. They almost went to the Martial Sacred Hall to ask for you.”
The White Dragon Race had always been enemies with the Martial Sacred Hall. The moment any important figures of the two factions went missing, they would basically immediately assume that it was the other party’s doing. This time was naturally no exception.
“Sorry, I was ambushed by an expert of the Martial Sacred Hall. All the White Dragon Guards have died, and I’m the only one left.” Long Xiaoyu said helplessly.
At this, Long Yan shouted:
“What? And yet you told me you were fine? Tell me where you are!”
“Grandpa Yan, don’t worry. The Martial Divine Hall expert who ambushed me… has already been killed by me.”
After hesitating for a long time, Long Xiaoyu finally chose not to say anything about Qin Jue. She thought that she should keep her promise.
However, what Long Xiaoyu didn’t know was that because of this decision, she had inadvertently prevented her memories from being erased.
“Are there any other experts from the Martial Sacred Hall around?”
“No, the reason why I contacted Grandpa Yan was because I had something to tell you.”
“What is it?” Qin Jue said impatiently.
“Do you know who else knows about my whereabouts this time?”
“Why are you asking this?”
Before he could finish his sentence, Long Yan’s expression changed and he said in a shocked tone, “You mean there’s a traitor in the clan?”
Long Yan wasn’t an idiot, so how could he not understand the meaning behind Long Xiaoyu’s words? As the divine maiden of the White Dragon Race, there were very few people who knew of her whereabouts. Moreover, everyone who knew were all higher-ups of the White Dragon Race. If not for a traitor helping them out, how could the experts of the Martial Sacred Hall have accurately ambushed her?
“That’s right. I hope that Grandpa Yan can inform Grandpa Patriarch and investigate this matter thoroughly.”
Long Xiaoyu’s expression was cold as she said this.
“Hmph, I hate traitors the most. I will definitely investigate this matter to the end. The moment I find out who it is, no matter who the traitor is, this traitor will definitely die!”
Long Yan said firmly, “What else do you need me to do?”
“There’s nothing else, but other than the patriarch, don’t tell anyone else about this for now, lest we alert the enemy.” Long Xiaoyu reminded.
After severing her connection with the Long Yan, Long Xiaoyu was not in a hurry to leave. Instead, she continued to draw another rune to contact the next elder…
