Chapter 256: No One Can Escape the Seduction of Power

Even Long Zhui did not understand why he would suddenly nod in agreement.
He did not want to be a mount at all.
Could this be what they meant by “your mouth says no but your body says yes”?
Qin Jue took him seriously and cheerfully said, “From now on, you’re my mount.”
Long Zhui was stunned. Just like that?
Without waiting for Long Zhui to react, Qin Jue suddenly stretched out his hand and grabbed.
In an instant, Long Zhui felt an invisible force pass through his body and take something from his mind.
“What did you do to me?”
Long Zhui was shocked and looked up at Qin Jue.
“It’s nothing. I just took away part of your soul.” Qin Jue clenched his fist and said casually.
Long Zhui: “???”
Long Zhui wondered how that could be considered as “nothing”.
“Don’t worry, this part of the soul is not very dense. It won’t affect you at all.” Qin Jue added.
To living beings, their souls were undoubtedly the most important thing. Once their souls were injured, it was basically very difficult for them to recover.
Under normal circumstances, if a part of the soul was removed, the owner of the sou; might very well become an idiot or lose some ability.
However, not only did Long Zhui not feel uncomfortable, but he was even full of vitality.
Did Qin Jue really take away a part of his soul?
“Although the part of the soul I took from you won’t affect you, if you want to deceive me or betray me in the future, I can use the soul I took to kill you at any time.” Playing with the misty soul in his hand, Qin Jue warned.
He was not a saint and he wasn’t interested in playing nice. Qin Jue needed to have full control of Long Zhui’s life in order to make this proud white dragon submit completely.
Otherwise, it would be like putting a time bomb by his side.
After all, Long Zhui was not like the husky, who was only at the Heaven Stage and could not cause any huge impact. Instead, Long Zhui was a genuine Grand Saint Stage expert. With a single move, Long Zhui could cause the heavens and the earth to collapse.
In the Spirit Central World, besides the Eight Sacred Masters and Qin Jue’s incarnation, there was almost no one who could match Long Zhui’s strength.
“Isn’t this a soul contract?”
Long Zhui was surprised.
A soul contract was an extremely powerful contract that had to be accepted by both sides at the same time.
After the contract took effect, the contractor could control the soul of the contractee. If the contractor wanted to, he could even kill the contractee at any time. Moreover, if the contractor died, the contractee would also die.
Therefore, many experts would choose to sign a soul contract after subduing their enemies or fiend beasts to prevent betrayal.
In addition, according to Long Zhui’s knowledge, the process of signing a soul contract was very troublesome. But he noticed that Qin Jue had actually completed it with a casual grab of his hand.
Long Zhui opened his mouth and finally chose to accept his reality.
Since he had agreed to be someone’s mount, then he had to start coming to terms with it. Otherwise, it would all be for nothing.
Long Zhui knew this very well.
“When… are you going to help me remove the shackles?”
Although he found it somewhat absurd, Long Zhui was still full of anticipation.
Qin Jue smiled and put away the part of Long Zhui’s soul he took from Long Zhui. Qin Jue flicked his finger, and the room immediately lit up with dazzling golden light again.
At the same time, Long Zhui grunted as his entire body suddenly shook as if he had suffered a heavy blow. He spat out a ball of black blood and almost fainted!
Chi! Chi! Chi!
As soon as the black blood landed on the ground, it erupted with a strong corrosive effect, instantly leaving a fist-sized pit on the ground that was bottomless.
Immediately after, Long Zhui’s eyes widened in disbelief.
“What’s going on… Why do I feel like my meridians and bones are so relaxed…” Long Zhui muttered to himself. He felt as if he had been reborn. Even the blood in his body was filled with energy.
“Alright, I’ve already removed the shackles on your body. Try circulating your cultivation technique.” Qin Jue reminded.
Hearing this, Long Zhui hurriedly closed his eyes and entered a cultivation state.
As Long Zhui circulated his cultivation technique, the spirit qi between heaven and earth immediately crazily gathered over, forming a visible energy vortex above his head. If Qin Jue hadn’t used his divine ability to suppress it, the entire room would have been torn apart by this spirit qi.
Sensing the majestic spirit qi flowing through his meridians, Long Zhui was incomparably excited. Not only had the sluggish feeling disappeared, but his cultivation speed had also increased greatly. It was countless times faster than before.
At this rate, not to mention the Great Sage Stage, Long Zhui was confident that he could even break through to the Great Void Stage!
After a long while, Long Zhui took a deep breath and ended his cultivation. He slowly stood up and jumped down from the bed. Then under Qin Jue’s calm gaze, he fell to his knees with a plop.
“Thank you, Master!”
Long Zhui said this with extreme sincerity. He even started referring to Qin Jue as “Master”.
At this moment, Long Zhui was completely convinced.
Such a method could be said to be world shocking!
“Hehe, you’re welcome.”
Qin Jue waved his hand and said indifferently, “You deserve this.”
Long Zhui was stunned. He subconsciously looked at the deep pit on the ground and could not help but ask, “But… why are there such shackles on my body?”
“Where are your parents?” Qin Jue answered with a question.
“They’re all dead.” Long Zhui said hesitantly.
How did they die?
“Father died in the war with the Martial Sacred Hall.”
At this point, Long Zhui paused for a moment and continued, “Mother was also injured in the war with the Martial Sacred Hall. She died after giving birth to me.”
After hearing Long Zhui’s explanation, Qin Jue suddenly understood. No wonder Long Zhui was unwilling to be his mount in the beginning. Qin Jue believed that anyone who had an experience like this would hate humans to the bone. Considering that he did not directly fight Qin Jue to the death, Long Zhui was already very restrained.
Unfortunately, no one could escape the seduction of power.
“The shackles on your mother must have been transferred to you.”
After pondering for a moment, Qin Jue made a judgment.
“The shackles on my mother?”
Long Zhui was shocked.
Long Zhui didn’t realize that a thing like that could be transferred.
“So far, it appears to be so.”
Qin Jue faintly said, “Of course, we can’t rule out the possibility that it was done by an expert from your White Dragon Race.”
Even the elders had colluded with the Martial Sacred Hall to ambush the Divine Maiden. At this point, anything was possible.
Long Zhui became silent and fell into deep thought, as if he was recalling something.
Qin Jue didn’t care about that and continued, “The shackles have just been removed, and your blood vitality hasn’t reached its peak yet, so it’s best not to let anyone know. Adapt to it for a few days first. I’ll come again after a while.”
After saying this, Qin Jue’s figure flashed and instantly disappeared from his original spot, leaving behind a confused Long Zhui who thought he was dreaming.
It wasn’t that Qin Jue was in a hurry to leave, but he suddenly sensed that someone was approaching the courtyard he lived in and had to go back to deal with it.
After an unknown period of time, Long Zhui finally reacted. He looked at the place where Qin Jue had disappeared and whispered, “In any case, I must grasp this opportunity well!”
