Chapter 278: Farewell
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Sand and dust flew into the air, raising a monstrous storm. A gully that was 30,000 meters long immediately appeared in the already devastated wilderness. It stretched out horizontally from Long Zhui’s position, looking horrifying.
Long Zhui used his full strength in this attack, tearing Long Zichen into pieces and destroying his soul!
After doing this, Long Zhui swayed and fell to his knees with a plop. Blood sprayed from his mouth and nose, and his aura became dispirited.
However, Long Zhui revealed a happy smile. “Little Demon, I’ve finally avenged you!”
Before this, even Long Zhui thought that it was almost impossible for him to take revenge.
After all, regardless of status or cultivation talent, Long Zhui was far inferior. Perhaps by the time Long Zichen stepped into the Great Void Stage, he would still be struggling to reach the Grand Saint Stage.
That was until Qin Jue appeared.
In a short month, not only had Long Zhui completed his shocking counterattack, but he had also broken through twice and advanced from the late-phase of the Saint Stage to the Great Sage Stage. He had even killed Long Zichen head-on, getting his revenge!
If not for the fact that the wounds on his body were still aching faintly, Long Zhui would definitely think that he was dreaming.
Witnessing this scene, Qin Jue’s expression changed slightly. His fingertip immediately lit up with a golden light that fused into Long Zhui’s body.
As the golden light fell, the wounds on Long Zhui’s body immediately began to heal at a visible speed. They quickly recovered to their original state. Apart from his tattered clothes, it was almost impossible to tell that Long Zhui had just experienced a fierce battle.
“Thank you, Master!”
Long Zhui bowed to Qin Jue without hesitation, no longer hesitating in his words.
Qin Jue nodded. “You should be able to leave with me now, right?”
“Master, I have one last request.” After hesitating for a moment, Long Zhui said.
Qin Jue frowned. He hated it when people pushed their luck.
“I want to… say goodbye to a friend before leaving.”
Hearing this, Qin Jue suddenly understood. If he remembered correctly, Long Zhui did have a very good friend.
“Alright, I can give you a day. I’ll come back tomorrow to take you away.”
“Thank you, Master!”
Long Zhui was overjoyed. He didn’t know how many times he had thanked Qin Jue today, but for now, this was the only thing he could do.
After giving a few more reminders, Qin Jue didn’t stay any longer. He sent Long Zhui to the simple wooden house and then also returned to his courtyard.
As for Long Zichen’s “disappearance”, Qin Jue was not worried that anyone would suspect Long Zhui.
Putting aside the fact that Long Zhui was only a guard around the Grand Saint Stage in the eyes of the outside world, it was simply impossible for the others to think that he could beat Long Zichen.
Just the fact that Long Zichen had disappeared from the Elder Area was enough to erase all the suspicions.
One had to know that low-level guards were forbidden from entering the Elder Area as they pleased. Long Zichen could only stay inside because of his status as the son of an elder.
If nothing went wrong, this matter would only be left unsettled in the end. No one would care unless Long Zichen possessed top-notch talent like Long Xiaoyu and attracted the attention of the higher-ups.
Unfortunately, Long Zichen did not.
Moreover, Qin Jue had erased all the spatial traces. Even if the White Dragon Race Patriarch personally came, he wouldn’t be able to find any clues.
“Ha, I’m leaving tomorrow. I really can’t bear to leave.”
Looking at the exquisite courtyard around him, Qin Jue couldn’t help but sigh.
Compared to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, the environment here was undoubtedly more beautiful. Moreover, there were high-level spirit herbs and spirit fruits everywhere. It could be said to be a paradise. Living in such a place was simply a form of enjoyment.
“Eh? Master, didn’t you say you would get me a friend?”
Yun Xi flew over from the side and circled around Qin Jue with a puzzled expression.
“Ahem, you’ll know tomorrow.”
Qin Jue was speechless.
“Senior, are you there?”
At this moment, layers of ripples suddenly appeared in the array formation outside the courtyard, and a woman’s pleasant voice sounded. Who else could it be other than Long Xiaoyu?
“What is it?” Qin Jue asked.
“Senior, I have a few things for you.”
Qin Jue wondered if it was spirit wine.
Qin Jue’s eyes lit up. “Come in.”
After obtaining permission, Long Xiaoyu immediately passed through the array formation and arrived at the courtyard.
Perhaps it was because she had obtained the inheritance of the Heavenly Emperor, Long Xiaoyu had clearly become more confident than before. Moreover, she gave off a high and mighty feeling, like a god.
Just as Yun Xi had said, the Heavenly Emperor had given the two of them completely different inheritances. In addition, Long Xiaoyu belonged to the Dragon Race, so it was not strange for her to emit a godly aura.
Qin Jue couldn’t care less and impatiently asked, “You said you brought a few things for me?”
Hearing this, Long Xiaoyu was stunned. She didn’t expect Qin Jue to be so direct and immediately answered, “Grandpa asked me to give these to you.”
“This is Grandpa’s identity jade tablet. Grandpa said that since you saved me, you’re a friend of the White Dragon Race. You can come and play anytime in the future.”
“There’s also a thousand-year-old soul jade and a ten-thousand-year-old spirit herb…”
Qin Jue :”…”
Qin Jue didn’t understand why Long Xiaoyu brought him this stuff.
Just as Qin Jue was feeling extremely disappointed, Long Xiaoyu continued, “By the way, I noticed that Senior liked to drink, so I specially brought some spirit wine for you.”
As she spoke, Long Xiaoyu withdrew a storage ring that was filled with various thousand-year-old spirit wines. Many of them had even reached more than ten thousand years old.
With Long Xiaoyu’s current status, she could be said to be second only to one person and above everyone else. Not to mention just taking some spirit wine, even emptying the White Dragon Race’s wine storage wouldn’t be a problem.
Seeing this, Qin Jue immediately grinned. “Hahaha, you know me best.”
Before he could finish his sentence, he unceremoniously accepted the storage ring, opened one of the pots of spirit wine, and drank it happily.
Long Xiaoyu :”…”
“Master, I want one too.”
Yun Xi sat on Qin Jue’s shoulder, drooling.
“No, this is ten-thousand-year-old spirit wine. You can’t drink it.”
Even though Yun Xi was already a Supreme Stage expert, she was absolutely unable to withstand a ten-thousand-year-old spirit wine.
This was especially true for the ten-thousand-year-old spirit wine brewed by the White Dragon Race. The spirit energy contained in it was far from what a low-level dimension like the Spirit Central World could compare with. If one was careless, they would explode from the spirit energy.
Long Xiaoyu rubbed Yun Xi’s head and smiled. “Little Fellow, since we basically obtained the same inheritance, we’re fellow sect disciples.”
Although the inheritances were different, the origins were both from the Heavenly Emperor. Therefore, in a way, the two of them were indeed from the same sect.
“Hmph, I only have one master. That strange uncle isn’t my master!”
Yun Xi hugged Qin Jue and retorted.
If the Heavenly Emperor heard this, who knew what he would think?
The dignified Heavenly Emperor had turned into a strange uncle!
Was there still justice in this world?
However, if Qin Jue hadn’t forced him, the Heavenly Emperor probably wouldn’t have agreed to give the inheritance to Yun Xi.
Long Xiaoyu smiled awkwardly.
In the end, under Yun Xi’s pestering, Qin Jue still gave her a pot of thousand-year-old spirit wine. Soon, Yun Xi was drunk as mud and fell asleep on Qin Jue’s head, making them not know whether to laugh or to cry.
At the same time, Qin Jue seemed to remember something and said seriously, “I almost forgot to tell you that I’m going back tomorrow.”
Long Xiaoyu was stunned for a moment before nodding slightly. “Alright.”
She knew very well that it was impossible for Qin Jue to stay in the White Dragon World forever, but she didn’t expect him to leave so soon.
