Chapter 267: Hate It The Most
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
When Qin Jue passed the eighth test, the entire Divine Realm was lit up by divine light, as if a god had descended to the mortal world, illuminating all living beings.
Seven abnormal phenomena intertwined, changing unpredictably. Auspicious signs appeared one after another, constantly revolving around Qin Jue, emitting a vast aura.
Even beings outside the Divine Realm could sense this incomparable power.
It was safe to assume that Qin Jue was the first person to pass eight tests in such a short period of time without batting an eye.
There was practically no test that could make him stop for a moment, and it was like he was strolling leisurely in his own backyard.
In the distance, Long Xiaoyu’s initial shock had already turned to numbness.
It was only at this moment that she realized how huge the gap between her and Qin Jue was.
How could the word “genius” be used to describe him? He was simply the reincarnation of an immortal!
As for Long Cang and the others outside, they only had one thought in their minds. They were witnessing the birth of a legendary figure!
Even many of the geniuses who had ascended the Heaven Ascension Steps chose to stop and watch.
“He’s already at the last test.”
Looking at the mysterious black hole in front of him, Qin Jue dug his ears and felt bored.
Originally, after hearing Long Xiaoyu’s explanation, Qin Jue was rather curious and wanted to see what the nine tests of the Divine Seal Altar were like. He didn’t expect that he would actually pass the first eight levels so easily. He felt really bored.
However, according to Long Xiaoyu, the ninth test should be the most difficult one: the Heart Demon Tribulation.
The “Heart Demon” here referred to the inner demons or flaws buried deep inside cultivators.
Typically, only people with a sufficiently firm will could pass through here. It had nothing to do with one’s cultivation level. Moreover, it was a flawless test and was countless times more terrifying than the second level of the “Senluo Illusion”. Long Cang had failed to pass this test back then.
However, Long Cang had also benefited from his failure. After learning how to recognize his own faults, it did not take long for him to defeat his inner demon and advance to a higher level.
It was precisely because of this that Long Cang could successfully break through to the Great Void Stage and advance to the Half God Stage.
Unfortunately, he had yet to ascend to the Divine Seal Altar. If he didn’t have a great lucky chance, it would be very difficult for him to reach the True God Stage.
What was worth mentioning was that Long Cang’s inner demon had to do with the current White Dragon Race’s patriarch, Long Kun’s father.
At that time, the two of them were both top geniuses of the White Dragon Race and could be said to be peerless geniuses. Their might shook the void.
However, Long Kun’s father had always been superior to Long Cang, causing Long Cang to feel unwilling in his heart and gradually develop jealousy. This caused Long Cang to completely erupt when he entered the Heart Demon Tribulation. He was unable to control himself and almost suffered from qi deviation.
Otherwise, with Long Cang’s talent, he might have been able to pass the Heart Demon Tribulation.
And once he passed the Demon Heart Tribulation and stepped onto the Divine Seal Altar, Long Cang, who would then obtain the Divine Realm’s rewards, would most likely become a True God like Long Kun’s father.
Perhaps this was fate.
Qin Jue couldn’t care less. After absorbing the divine light above, he immediately entered the ninth test, the Heart Demon Tribulation.
“I’m going in.”
In the outside world, everyone held their breaths, their expressions slightly nervous.
They all wondered if Qin Jue would pass as easily as before?
At the same time, Qin Jue, who had entered the black hole, found himself in a fog. He took two steps forward, and the surrounding fog immediately retreated like a tide, revealing the scene inside: Xuanyi Mountain Sect!
Qin Jue was certain that he had actually arrived at the Xuanyi Mountain Sect!
However, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect seemed to have just been attacked. Not only was there black smoke outside, but most of the buildings had also collapsed and turned into ruins.
Everywhere he looked, he saw broken limbs, broken arms, and corpses. It was like an Asura Hell, and it was extremely miserable.
“Junior Brother… Junior Brother… save me…”
Bai Ye crawled over from the side, trembling. His lower body had already disappeared, and blood was flowing from his seven orifices, as if he would die at any moment.
“Uncle-Master… save me…”
Beside him, Zhang Jichen lay on the ground, on his last breath, his tone filled with sorrow.
“Save me… save me…”
Countless voices sounded in Qin Jue’s ears, each one seeming to be emotionally pleading for his help.
However, Qin Jue couldn’t help but sneer. “I don’t have any inner demons, so you’re using this to scare me?”
Apart from drinking and singing, Qin Jue neither cultivated nor went out often. How could he have any inner demons?
Even his attachment to Earth was relieved under Long Zhen’s influence. The only thing he was worried about was probably the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
However, now that there was a barrier outside the Spirit Central World that he had set up, experts that surpassed the Great Void Stage could not even approach. Moreover, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had Luo Xun and Mu Ziqi holding down the fort. Unless someone from the experts from the Sacred Land of the Central Continent came, who in the Southern Land could do anything to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect?
Moreover, Long Zhen was also helping him keep an eye on the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. It could be said that nothing would go wrong.
“Let’s end this.”
Shaking his head, Qin Jue waved his hand, and the scene in front of him immediately shattered. The cries for help also disappeared and turned back into the fog.
Immediately after, Qin Jue’s figure flashed and he walked out of the black hole.
The ninth test, the Heart Demon Tribulation, passed!
“He’s out! So fast!”
Everyone was shocked.
They didn’t expect that even the ninth level wouldn’t be able to delay Qin Jue for half a minute!
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Almost the moment Qin Jue walked out of the black hole, the Divine Realm rumbled, and boundless light lit up, lighting up the sky as if a terrifying existence was waking up.
In the next moment, light gathered and condensed into dozens of figures above Qin Jue’s head, sacred and solemn.
As these dozens of figures appeared, the entire world fell silent and fell into a dead silence.
After a while, someone finally said,
“Are… are those the phantoms of ancient True God experts?”
“I suppose.” Another person said hesitantly.
As everyone knew, every genius that ascended the Divine Seal Altar could resonate with the Divine Seal Altar and awaken the remnant soul of the ancient True God experts. They would inherit a portion of their strength and their cultivation would increase greatly.
But up until now, no matter who it was, they could at most awaken the remnant soul of a single ancient True God.
Did Qin Jue awaken the remnant souls of all the ancient True God Stage experts?
In addition, Qin Jue didn’t even ascend the Divine Seal Altar yet.
“Too terrifying.” Chu Xiao muttered to himself with a shocked expression.
Awakening just one remnant soul of an ancient True God would allow one’s cultivation to increase greatly to the True God Stage. Then what would happen if one awakened dozens of ancient True God Stage souls?
“No, I have to inform His Majesty Demon God as soon as possible!”
Suppressing the shock in his heart, the Demon Lord gritted his teeth.
“Are you sure he’s Xiaoyu’s friend?”
On Celestial Qilin, Long Cang looked at Long Kun with a complicated expression.
Long Kun opened his mouth, not knowing how to answer.
He suddenly remembered that when he first saw Qin Jue, he had directly used his dragon might to attack Qin Jue, but he had only suffered a slight backlash. Could it be that Qin Jue was deliberately going easy on him?
“Mm? Who are these guys?”
Qin Jue looked up and frowned slightly.
He hated it when others floated on his head, so Qin Jue punched out without hesitation.
Space collapsed and shattered inch by inch. Then with Qin Jue’s fist as the center, it pierced straight into the clouds and connected heaven and earth!
With a sharp sound, under everyone’s unbelievable gazes, the dozens of figures floating above Qin Jue’s head were instantly devoured by the fist wind and turned into nothingness!
