Chapter 251: Resolve

The air was torn apart, and Long Qing instantly crossed a hundred meters and arrived in front of Long Ao. White flames spat out from Long Qing’s mouth and swept out.
In an instant, the surrounding temperature rose abruptly as the flames continued to spread out. All the flowers and trees within a five-kilometer radius were turned to ashes by this heat wave. Even space could not withstand it and was slightly distorted.
“Long Qing, you forced me to do this!”
Long Ao could no longer tolerate it. Boundless spirit energy suddenly erupted from his body, blocking the white flames.
“Hmph, it’s not over yet.”
Long Qing had a calm expression, as if he was not surprised that Long Ao could block its attack. He then took a step forward, and his entire right hand suddenly turned into a huge claw that slapped towards Long Ao!
“I’m not afraid of you!”
Facing the overbearing Long Qing, Long Ao finally stopped retreating and chose to fight back!
The ground shook as the two spirit energies continued to clash and collide, raising dust and rubble that filled the sky. Soon, it attracted even more attention from the other White Dragon Race experts.
The two of them were old rivals to begin with, and they each cultivated fire-attribute and ice-attribute cultivation techniques respectively. It was clearly impossible to determine the victor in a short period of time.
Witnessing this scene, the other two White Dragon Race experts said simultaneously, “We’ll capture this human first before helping Boss.”
No matter how strong Long Ao was, it was impossible for him to deal with three Saint Stage experts at the same time.
After making up their minds, the two of them started to slowly approach Qin Jue.
Qin Jue :”…”
Qin Jue wondered if he really looked like a weakling.
Hai, it couldn’t be helped. He couldn’t keep a low profile even if he wanted to.
“Human, take this!”
The White Dragon Race expert on the left was the first to attack. Because he wasn’t sure of Qin Jue’s strength, he was very cautious. A wisp of spirit energy quickly condensed in his palm as he attempted to probe Qin Jue.
However, before he could attack, Qin Jue suddenly waved his hand. The spirit energy that he had just condensed immediately shattered. Immediately, the White Dragon Race expert that attacked spat out blood from his mouth and nose and fell to the ground, unconscious from his heavy injuries.
Dazed and confused, the other White Dragon Race expert wondered if he was hallucinating.
“You… What did you do to Long Jie?”
Qin Jue didn’t answer but waved his hand again.
The other White Dragon Race expert also fell unconscious.
However, Qin Jue didn’t kill either of them. He only seriously injured them so that they would have to lie in bed for a few months at most.
After all, he was here to find a mount, not to seek revenge. There was no need for him to start a massacre over such a small matter. Otherwise, even if he did not come here as an enemy, he would eventually become one.
After doing this, Qin Jue flicked his finger lightly. Long Qing, who was fighting Long Ao, immediately seemed to be hit heavily, and his movements paused for a moment.
Then, Long Ao punched Long Qing mercilessly in the chest!
With a dull bang, Long Qing was instantly sent flying. He hit the distant mountain like a meteor and was buried under the rubble.
Long Ao was shocked. He had fought with Long Qing several times, and each time, they were evenly matched. Why had Long Qing lost so quickly this time?
However, when he saw the two Long Qing’s lackeys lying on the ground unconscious not far away, he immediately understood what was going on.
He almost forgot that Qin Jue was an expert above the fifth realm of the Great Void Stage. For someone like him, dealing with two Saint Stage ants was as easy as flipping his hand. It was probably because of Qin Jue that Long Qing lost to him so easily.
“Thank you, Senior.”
Long Ao cupped his fists in gratitude.
He had long been unhappy with Long Qing. How could Long Ao not be happy for the opportunity of beating up Long Qing with Qin Jue’s help?
At the same time, more White Dragon Race experts were attracted by the battle just now and appeared nearby.
“Look, there’s a human over there!”
“Eh, isn’t that Long Jie and Long Jun? Why are they both lying on the ground?”
“It must be caused by this human!”
Seeing this scene, the White Dragon Race experts rushing over were furious. They took out their weapons and aimed them at Qin Jue.
In an instant, Qin Jue became the target of everyone!
Seeing this, Long Ao panicked and hurriedly explained, “Everyone, you’re mistaken. This senior is a friend of the Divine Maiden.”
“What? Your Highness the Divine Maiden’s friend?”
As soon as these words were spoken, everyone looked at each other with surprise and bewilderment.
At that moment, with blood hanging from the corner of his mouth, Long Qing rushed out of the rubble and gritted his teeth. “Everyone, don’t listen to his nonsense. Her Highness the Divine Maiden is high and mighty. How could she have human friends?”
“Indeed. Since when did Your Highness have a human friend?”
“By the way, Long Ao, why are you with a human?”
“Are you an accomplice of this human?”
Everyone immediately turned their attention to Long Ao. If Long Ao continued to remain silent, he would definitely be seen as a traitor and attacked from all sides.
Because the incident of the traitors that happened some time ago had caused an uproar, all the members of the White Dragon Race were extremely sensitive at this time. They weren’t even willing to believe their own kind, let alone a human like Qin Jue.
Seeing this, Long Qing smiled and added, “Long Ao colluded with humans and injured experts of our race. He must be a traitor sent by the Martial Sacred Hall. Everyone, don’t let him off!”
“Long Qing, you!”
Long Ao was unable to restrain his anger. He had not expected Long Qing to be so crazy.
“Long Ao, hurry up and surrender. Otherwise, don’t blame us for being heartless!” A Grand Saint Stage expert stood forward and said indifferently.
“That’s right, Long Ao. Do you think we’re all idiots? How could we believe your nonsense so easily?”
Long Ao :”…”
Long Ao could not help but think that the other party was actually an idiot.
“Long Ao, you keep saying that this human is the Divine Maiden’s friend. Do you have evidence?”
At this moment, almost all the White Dragon Race experts present had already believed that Long Ao was colluding with the Martial Sacred Hall.
As for Qin Jue, they had no question that he was a spy sent by the Martial Sacred Hall.
Regarding this, Qin Jue was rather helpless. He could only take out Long Xiaoyu’s identity jade tablet again and say, “See for yourself.”
Hearing this, everyone looked in the direction of the voice, and their expressions instantly froze, becoming extremely interesting.
At their level, how could they not detect the aura that belonged to Long Xiaoyu on that jade tablet?
One had to know that regardless of which dragon it was, bloodline was extremely important. As the purest descendant of the White Dragon Race in the past thousand years, Long Xiaoyu innately possessed bloodline suppression towards experts of the same race.
Even a casual aura of hers could make these experts below the Great Void Stage tremble.
This was also the reason why Long Ao remained firm. As long as he swept his spirit sense over the jade tablet, he could tell that it was absolutely impossible for it to be fake.
“Heavens, it’s really the Divine Maiden’s identity jade tablet.”
“But, how could Her Highness the Divine Maiden have human friends?”
“Do you think I know the answer to that question?”
Everyone was dumbfounded and did not know what to do.
Among them, the one who was most afraid was none other than Long Qing. He never expected that Qin Jue would actually have Long Xiaoyu’s identity jade tablet!
Long Qing wanted to ask why Long Ao hadn’t brought it out earlier.
Wiping the blood from the corner of its mouth, Long Qing wanted to cry but had no tears to shed.
In the distance, a grand voice sounded. It was vast and mighty, piercing through gold and splitting stone. It shook everyone to the point of feeling dizzy and extremely uncomfortable.
“It’s the elders!” Someone shouted.
