Chapter 248: Bai Ye Exits Seclusion
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
A cold wind blew, sweeping up countless snowflakes that fell lightly to the ground like petals.
It continued to snow for three days and three nights. At this moment, the entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect was covered in white snow, as if it was wrapped by a layer of cotton.
In fact, large Martial Dao factions like the Archaic Mysteries Sect all had their own mountain-protecting formation that could isolate the sect from the outside weather, making it feel like spring all year round.
However, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect did not have that kind of mountain-protecting formation yet.
Moreover, whether it was Qin Jue or Bai Ye, neither of them liked that feeling. In the future, even if they built a mountain-protecting formation, they would absolutely not use it to isolate the sect from the outside weather.
After removing the snow on the blue stone, Qin Jue sat cross-legged, took out a pot of spirit wine, and began to roast some meat to eat.
He could sense that the spirit qi at the place where Bai Ye was cultivating in seclusion had been very unstable recently.
After waiting for more than two months, was Bai Ye finally going to break through?
Strictly speaking, Bai Ye had already been in seclusion for nearly half a year. With a large amount of resources, it was indeed time for him to break through.
After all, Bai Ye had forcefully suppressed his cultivation for more than a decade before he advanced to the Supreme Stage, and he had long since attained a flawless state.
Once he stepped into the Supreme Stage, he would accumulate strength and be able to increase greatly in a short period of time.
With the cultivation resources and high-level cultivation techniques provided by Qin Jue, Qin Jue believed that in ten years, Bai Ye would have a chance to reach the Legendary Stage.
In the Central Continent, a Legendary Stage expert might not be considered much. However, in the Southern Land, an expert at that level was already considered as an invincible existence.
With Mu Ziqi around, even if Qin Jue and Luo Xun left the sect in the future, no one would dare to do anything to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
Just as Qin Jue was thinking, a red light suddenly rose from the distance and soared into the sky, stirring up a sky full of snowflakes. The light and the snow complemented each other and were exceptionally gorgeous.
It was the cultivation technique that Bai Ye was currently cultivating, “Rainbow Split”.
At the same time, Mu Ziqi, who had sensed the commotion, raised her eyebrows slightly and instantly appeared outside Bai Ye’s secret room.
“That idiot took so long.” Mu Ziqi muttered to herself and couldn’t help but grumble.
On the other side, Qin Jue walked over unhurriedly with a roasted meat in one hand and a wine pot in the other. “Sister-in-law, it’s been hard on you during this time.”
Although Qin Jue was the honorary vice sect master of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, he had never cared about anything. The First Elder, Wang Quan, had also been transferred to Brilliance City. Therefore, all the affairs of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect basically fell on Mu Ziqi, who was the pride of the Mu Clan.
Hearing this, Mu Ziqi hurriedly shook her head and said, “It’s alright. It’s my responsibility, after all.”
Ever since she saw Qin Jue kill a Legendary Stage expert with a single punch, Mu Ziqi had firmly believed that Qin Jue was a Saint Stage expert and was rather respectful to him.
Although she was very puzzled as to why Bai Ye had a junior brother at the Saint Stage, Mu Ziqi never asked too many questions. She was not the kind of person who would use her status to take advantage of others. Otherwise, she would not have chosen Bai Ye as her romantic partner back then.
Before she could finish his sentence, the red light in the secret room became stronger and stronger. In the end, it enveloped an area of fifty kilometers like the sunset. Even the snow was dyed red.
After an unknown period of time, the red light shrank at an even faster speed. The spirit qi between heaven and earth also surged into the secret room crazily, turning into visible energy flows.
The Xuanyi Mountain Sect suddenly shook three times. Many low-level disciples felt an ethereal feeling in their hearts.
In the next moment, Bai Ye’s excited laugh could be heard. “I finally succeeded!”
The door to the secret room suddenly exploded, and Bai Ye walked out with his long hair fluttering in the wind. He had sharp brows, bright eyes, and a handsome appearance. He had already stepped into the middle-phase of the Supreme Stage.
“Eh, why are you two here?”
Seeing Qin Jue and Mu Ziqi, Bai Ye was surprised.
“Idiot, why did you take so long?”
Mu Ziqi did not say anything and directly stepped forward to grab Bai Ye’s ear.
“Aiya, it hurts, it hurts!”
Bai Ye gasped and hurriedly said, “Let go, my junior brother is still here.”
“Uh… it’s okay. I don’t care.”
Qin Jue shrugged his shoulders and looked up at the sky, pretending not to see anything.
Bai Ye :”…”
Long Zhan wondered if he was seeing things correctly.
Left with no choice, Bai Ye could only explain, “Because I just switched to “Rainbow Split” not long ago, I encountered a lot of trouble during the charging phase. Otherwise, I should have been able to advance half a month earlier.”
To a cultivator, the higher the level, the more difficult it was to change cultivation techniques. The difficulty would only be lower if the two techniques were part of a complete cultivation system.
For example, although there were various cultivation techniques in the Pure Yang Sacred Land, all the different techniques belonged to the same cultivation system. If one were to switch to another cultivation technique within the same cultivation system, the change would happen naturally and one’s foundation would remain unaffected.
As for Bai Ye, he had only changed his cultivation technique after advancing to the Supreme Stage. Moreover, he had switched to a cultivation technique that was completely different from the Clear Void Scripture. Therefore, it could only be imagined how difficult it was for him.
Fortunately, Bai Ye had been immersed in the Heaven Stage for many years, causing his foundation to be deep, so he only experienced some mild effects.
If it were anyone else, forget about breaking through, it would already be pretty good if they could stabilize their realm.
“I see. I almost forgot about that. Fine, I’ll reluctantly forgive you.”
Mu Ziqi suddenly understood and let go of Bai Ye’s ear.
For a moment, the atmosphere was awkward.
“Eh, it’s snowing. It’s so beautiful.”
Rubbing his ears, Bai Ye changed the topic in an attempt to resolve the awkwardness.
“By the way, Junior Brother, you must have a reason for coming to find me, right?”
Qin Jue ate the last piece of roasted meat and drank all the spirit wine before saying, “I’m preparing to go out for a while.”
“Out? Where?” Bai Ye asked.
“Uh… I don’t know. In short, it’s a place that’s very far away and not in the Spirit Central World.” Qin Jue said after carefully choosing his words.
It was difficult for him to explain the Martial Sacred Hall and the White Dragon Race in a few words, so Qin Jue simply skipped over them.
Moreover, Bai Ye had no need to know this.
“Not in the Spirit Central World? How long will that take?”
He knew Qin Jue’s strength, so he wasn’t worried about his safety.
“About ten days.” After pondering for a moment, Qin Jue answered.
He only wanted to go to visit the White Dragon World to get a mount and take a look at what those top factions looked like. It would take at most ten days.
“I see. I understand.”
Bai Ye nodded slightly. “When are you leaving?”
The next day, it snowed heavily before dawn.
Qin Jue put on his clothes and casually made some food. He said to the husky beside him, “Do you want to become stronger?”
The husky was stunned and hurriedly nodded.
It had to know that the reason why it was willing to be Qin Jue’s pet was not only because it was afraid of death, but also because it wanted to become stronger.
Qin Jue smiled and said, “I have something to do during this time. Stay here and don’t run around. When I come back, I’ll make you stronger.”
The husky was overjoyed. “I will definitely do as Master says and won’t go anywhere!”
“Master, Master, where are you going?”
Yun Xi grabbed Qin Jue’s arm and said coquettishly.
“Don’t worry, I’ll bring you along.” Qin Jue rubbed Yun Xi’s head and said indifferently.
“Hehe, I knew Master wouldn’t leave me behind.”
Yun Xi immediately revealed a happy smile.
Qin Jue :”…”
