Chapter 279: Return Journey
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
In the blink of an eye, a day passed. The Moon Rabbit landed and the Golden Crow rose.
In the courtyard, the spirit qi was like a fog. All kinds of birds and beasts passed through the forest, full of vitality.
Qin Jue opened his eyes, stretched lazily, and walked out of the room in a daze.
Sunlight scattered lightly on his body. Coupled with his handsome appearance, he could be said to be perfect.
“Master, you’re awake.”
In the distance, Yun Xi was hugging a fruit. As she tried to eat it, her cheeks were puffed up on both sides like a hamster.
Qin Jue reminded, “Get ready, we’re leaving.”
Yun Xi thought for a moment, then turned around and ran to the orchard behind to pluck a few fruits. She hugged them in her arms and then happily flew to Qin Jue’s shoulder.
Regarding this, Qin Jue was rather speechless. It seemed she could not stop eating no matter where she went.
Thinking like this, Qin Jue’s finger moved slightly, and a ring instantly condensed. “This is for you.”
“What is it?” Yun Xi couldn’t help but ask.
“You’ll know when you put it on.”
Because Yun Xi was too small, this ring was forced to become a bracelet.
“Try injecting spirit energy.”
Hearing this, Yun Xi continued to inject spirit energy into the ring as Qin Jue had said.
In the next moment, a huge space appeared in Yun Xi’s spirit sense. She couldn’t see the end of it.
“This is a storage ring. You can store anything inside in the future.” Qin Jue introduced.
“Hehe, I’ve wanted this for a long time. Master is so nice.”
Yun Xi immediately put all the fruits into her storage ring, but she felt that it wasn’t enough, so she flew into the orchard again, wishing she could stuff the entire orchard inside.
A moment later, Yun Xi plucked countless fruits before returning to Qin Jue’s side in satisfaction.
“Alright, Master, let’s go!”
Qin Jue :”…”
Qin Jue put his hands behind his back and slowly rose into the sky. He looked at the gradually shrinking courtyard below and sighed with emotion.
Because they had specially warned them, neither the White Dragon Race’s patriarch nor Long Xiaoyu came to send them off. Otherwise, he would have to tell them about Long Zhui.
This saved him a lot of trouble.
White Dragon World, Eastern Region.
“Little Zhui, are you really leaving?”
Long Ming stood in front of the wooden house, his voice filled with reluctance.
The two of them grew up together and were basically as close as brothers. They could even risk their lives for each other. Now that Long Zhui suddenly wanted to leave, one could only imagine how Long Ming felt.
“Mm, I want to go out and train myself. If I have the time, I will come back to visit you.”
Long Zhui naturally couldn’t tell Long Ming about Qin Jue, so he could only casually come up with a reason.
As for whether he could return, Long Zhui was not certain.
Sighing, Long Ming said seriously, “You have to be careful outside. Also, if you accidentally encounter humans, you must not fight them. Those humans are each more cunning than the other. If you are careless, you will fall into their trap.”
Long Zhui :”…”
If Long Ming knew that he was leaving with a human later, who knew what he would think?
“Don’t worry, I’m not a child anymore.”
Long Zhui smiled bitterly. He had already said everything he needed to say last night so he didn’t expect Long Ming to suddenly say so much today.
It wasn’t that Long Zhui was impatient. Instead, Long Zhui was afraid that Qin Jue would be impatient.
“Why don’t I go with you?” Long Ming suddenly suggested.
“Uh, no need…”
“Why not? If we both go, we can take care of each other.” Long Ming said righteously.
Long Zhui opened his mouth, not knowing how to answer for a moment.
At this moment, the space beside him suddenly sank and devoured Long Zhui!
Long Ming was shocked and wanted to reach out to grab Long Zhui. Unfortunately, it was already too late.
Long Zhui felt his vision go black. By the time he regained consciousness, he had already appeared in the starry sky outside the White Dragon World.
Long Zhui blinked. He didn’t need to think to know that it was definitely Qin Jue’s doing.
“You have a good friend.”
Beside him, Qin Jue said indifferently, “However, it’s impossible for me to bring him along.”
Long Zhui was silent. He knew this very well. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have refused Long Ming.
“Alright, show me your true body first.”
Qin Jue changed the topic.
Long Zhui did not hesitate at all. His body continued to expand and he quickly turned into a thousand-foot-long white dragon. His scales were as white as jade and suffused with a luster. He looked extraordinary.
Although it was far inferior to Long Xiaoyu’s true body, it was still only natural. After all, he was still only a Great Sage Stage expert. If he stepped into the Great Void Stage in the future, his true body might not necessarily be inferior to Long Xiaoyu’s true body.
“Wow, so handsome.”
Yun Xi raised her head, her eyes shining with anticipation.
To fiend beasts and living beings in human form, the Dragon Race that had a natural bloodline suppression was no different from gods.
However, after obtaining the Heavenly Emperor’s inheritance, Yun Xi was already immune to any form of pressure, including dragon might. Otherwise, she would probably have to hide in Qin Jue’s arms again.
“Master, is he the friend you got for me?”
“That’s right.” Qin Jue smiled.
“So handsome. If only I could be like him.”
Yun Xi had a hopeful expression.
“Is that so?”
Rubbing Yun Xi’s head, Qin Jue flew up and landed on Long Zhui’s head. “Now, do you still want to be like him?”
Yun Xi shook her head repeatedly.
Long Zhui :”…”
“Master, where are we going now?”
Originally, Qin Jue wanted to directly return to the Spirit Central World, but now he changed his mind. This time, Qin Jue didn’t immediately teleport but constructed a spatial passageway instead. “Go in.”
With Long Zhui’s speed, he would be able to pass through this spatial passageway in at most five days and arrive at the Spirit Central World.
Suppressing the shock in his heart, Long Zhui’s figure flashed and he instantly entered the spatial passageway.
Constructing a spatial passageway with a flick of his finger? What kind of technique was this?
The longer Long Zhui followed Qin Jue, the more unfathomable Qin Jue was to Long Zhui. Long Zhui started to understand why Qin Jue was able to defeat the Martial Sacred Hall head-on!
Interestingly, this spatial passageway was transparent, allowing them to clearly see the scene outside.
Qin Jue’s intention was very simple. He wanted to see what the other worlds in this void were like on the way back.
However, he was soon shocked.
Along the way, Qin Jue could be said to have seen all kinds of strange worlds.
For example, he saw a world ruled by plants that created a technological civilization, as well as a world with only a vast ocean and no land. He even saw a world that was divided into seven continents. In that world, every continent would rotate, but only the upper continent had sunlight, while the lower continent was pitch-black.
In comparison, the Insect Race and fiend beasts were nothing strange.
In addition, Qin Jue also saw a mechanical lifeform similar to the one that invaded the Spirit Central World, but it was of a different type. Presumably, it didn’t come from the same world.
Just as Qin Jue was watching with relish, he suddenly discovered something and suddenly widened his eyes. “Stop!”
