Chapter 258: Misunderstanding
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“Eh? Senior, you’re here!”
As a pleasantly surprised voice sounded, Long Xiaoyu suddenly jumped out from the side. Her white clothes were as white as snow, and her exquisite appearance did not look any different from two months ago.
The only difference was that Long Xiaoyu had already advanced to the sixth realm of the Great Void Stage and had become stronger.
“Xiaoyu, do you know him?”
The middle-aged man was surprised.
Long Xiaoyu nodded and said, “His name is Qin Jue, a friend I made when I was out training.”
Because Qin Jue had specially reminded Long Xiaoyu earlier, Long Xiaoyu didn’t say anything about Shi Ying and the Spirit Central World.
Hearing this, the middle-aged man frowned slightly and looked at Qin Jue. “A human?”
Long Xiaoyu explained, “But don’t worry, Father. He has no ill intentions towards our White Dragon Race.”
“Hehe, no ill intentions huh…”
The middle-aged man sneered. “Xiaoyu, have you forgotten what I told you before? You can’t trust humans.”
As soon as he finished speaking, an indescribably powerful spirit energy suddenly erupted from the middle-aged man’s body. It instantly locked onto Qin Jue and fell like the sky, vast and boundless!
Long Xiaoyu was shocked. She didn’t expect that the middle-aged man would directly use his dragon might to suppress Qin Jue without saying a word.
She knew that her father had just ended his seclusion and successfully stepped into the tenth realm of the Great Void Stage. The dragon might he casually emitted could severely injure experts below the third realm of the Great Void Stage.
Long Xiaoyu wasn’t worried that Qin Jue would be injured. After all, according to her deduction, Qin Jue was very likely to be in the tenth realm of the Great Void Stage.
However, if the middle-aged man “attacked” the moment Qin Jue arrived, it would inevitably cause a misunderstanding.
Facing the middle-aged man’s dragon might that covered the sky and the earth, Qin Jue didn’t move at all, but the surrounding floor couldn’t withstand it. Cracks spread out inch by inch like a spider web.
In a moment, with Qin Jue at the center, the entire hall shook violently, collapsing into a pit that was shaped like a hemisphere.
However, Qin Jue still stood calmly in place, and only the floor under his feet remained unscathed. The unconscious Long Zhan was also not affected.
Strictly speaking, the middle-aged man, who was at the tenth realm of the Great Void Stage, should be the strongest expert Qin Jue had seen so far.
Compared to him, even the Asura World Master Luo Changge was no different from an ant.
After all, after the fifth realm of the Great Void Stage, the difference between each realm could be said to be like the difference between heaven and earth. Unless one had some special physique to enhance their strength, it was possible for them to challenge those in a higher realm.
Even Long Xiaoyu was incapable of fighting someone above her realm.
If it were anyone else, they would probably have been scared silly by the middle-aged man’s dragon might.
Unfortunately, to Qin Jue, the so-called dragon might was useless.
“How is this possible?”
Seeing this, the middle-aged man’s pupils constricted as he revealed an unbelievable expression.
At this moment, Qin Jue suddenly coughed twice. The middle-aged man’s dragon might around him immediately melted like solid ice, leaving nothing behind.
On the other side, the middle-aged man felt a metallic taste in his throat and almost vomited blood, but he forcefully suppressed it.
“Do you still want to continue?”
The middle-aged man was shocked. Qin Jue had easily resolved his dragon might and even caused him to suffer a backlash. The middle-aged man couldn’t help but wonder what kind of technique Qin Jue was using.
Although this was partly because he had underestimated his opponent, at least it could be proved that Qin Jue had definitely reached the tenth Great Void Stage like him!
The middle-aged man started wondering where Xiaoyu met this person.
One had to know that even factions as powerful as the White Dragon Race and the Martial Divine Hall only had a handful of tenth realm Great Void Stage experts. Furthermore, all of them were top-notch higher-ups.
It wasn’t an exaggeration to say that the middle-aged man basically knew every single tenth realm Great Void Stage expert of the Martial Sacred Hall. Qin Jue was definitely not one of them!
“Sorry, I was rude.”
Taking a deep breath, the middle-aged man cupped his fists apologetically.
Although he couldn’t confirm Qin Jue’s identity, at least for the time being, he was certain that the other party shouldn’t have any hostility. Otherwise, with the strength Qin Jue had displayed just now, if he had any ulterior motives, it would be impossible for Long Xiaoyu to come back alive.
“It’s okay.” Qin Jue waved his hand and said indifferently.
In fact, he could understand the middle-aged man’s feelings.
However… Didn’t you just say that you shouldn’t trust any humans? Don’t you think it’s a little strange for you to suddenly change your mind?
“Mr. Qin, right? My name is Long Kun, and I am Xiaoyu’s father.”
To prevent any awkwardness, the middle-aged man changed the topic and introduced himself.
Qin Jue nodded in response.
For a moment, the atmosphere fell silent.
It was only at this moment that Qin Jue had the time to observe this hall. It was actually made of spirit stones and crystals!
The entire hall had two rows of crystal pillars and had lifelike dragons and phoenixes carved on them. These pillars stretched all the way to the end of one’s field of vision, and they were simply no different from works of art.
At this moment, they were deep in the main hall, and Long Kun was sitting in front of the throne above. His expression was slightly awkward, as if he didn’t know what to do.
In the end, it was Long Xiaoyu who broke the silence. “Sorry, Senior. My father was injured by an expert of the Martial Sacred Hall in the past, so he despises humans.”
“Hey, hey, hey. Xiaoyu, what are you talking about? What do you mean I was injured by an expert of the Martial Sacred Hall? We were clearly both injured!”
Long Kun said proudly, “Moreover, that fellow was in an even worse state. He fell to a lower realm of cultivation on the spot and never recovered.”
Long Xiaoyu rolled her eyes and whispered, “One more thing. My father is a very proud man/”
Qin Jue :”…”
That much was obvious.
“By the way, Senior, did you need something from me?” Long Xiaoyu asked.
“Nothing much. I just wanted to come out and take a look. I also wanted to find out what the strongest factions in this void look like.” Qin Jue answered casually. Of course he wouldn’t tell Long Xiaoyu that he had come here looking for a mount.
Long Xiaoyu came to a realization, and her eyes lit up as she said, “In that case, Senior, come with me to participate in the Divine Seal Gathering. All the most powerful factions in this area will be there.”
“Divine Seal Gathering? What’s that?”
Qin Jue was puzzled.
“The Divine Seal Gathering is the largest distinguished meeting in this void. It will only be held every 300 years, and the genius disciples of the various factions will participate.”
Long Xiaoyu continued, “In half a month, it will be the day of the next Divine Seal Gathering.”
The reason why Long Xiaoyu was brought to another place by the White Dragon Race Patriarch to cultivate this time was because she wanted to prepare for the Divine Seal Gathering.
Fortunately, the heavens didn’t disappoint those who worked hard. Long Xiaoyu had successfully advanced to the sixth realm of the Great Void Stage. She believed that among the participants of the Divine Seal Gathering, no one in the younger generation would be able to contend with her this time.
After hearing Long Xiaoyu’s description, Qin Jue fell into deep thought. Was he about to embark on a new journey?
He wondered if he should follow along and take a look.
Right at this time, the unconscious Long Zhan woke up. “Wu… where is this…”
After Long Zhan saw the scene in front of him clearly, he was instantly stunned.
Wasn’t he preparing to use the teleportation array formation? How did he arrive here so quickly?
Thinking of this, Long Zhan subconsciously looked at Qin Jue, dumbfounded.
