Chapter 284: Without Desire, One Would Become Unyielding
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
As Bai Ye and Mu Ziqi entered the main hall, it also meant that the wedding had officially started.
The higher-ups of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect stood up and applauded. There were even a few musicians playing music at the side. Their voices spread throughout the entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect, sounding pleasant to the ears.
Then under everyone’s expectant gazes, Bai Ye took Mu Ziqi’s arm and slowly walked to the deepest part of the main hall. The First Elder sat on one side and Qin Jue sat on the other. Both of them had statuses that were only inferior to the sect master.
In order to participate in this wedding, First Elder Wang Quan had specially rushed back from Brilliance City.
Even though he was only at the Heaven Stage, he represented the Xuanyi Mountain Sect in Brilliance City. Even the patriarchs of the Six Great Clans were respectful towards him.
As for Qin Jue, although he never interfered, he was still the honorary vice sect master of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Whether it was his position or his seniority, he was higher than the other elders. It was only right for him to sit where he sat.
Bai Ye placed his hand on his mouth and coughed twice. The hall immediately fell silent.
“Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to attend my wedding.” After pondering for a moment, Bai Ye said very politely.
“Today, I will marry Mu Ziqi.”
After a pause, Bai Ye continued, “Mu Ziqi will also become the second sect master of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. If I’m not around, she will be in charge of everything. I hope everyone can support her.”
“Sect Master Mu!”
Everyone looked at each other and immediately bowed respectfully to Mu Ziqi.
In fact, Mu Ziqi had been the one managing the Xuanyi Mountain Sect when Bai Ye was in seclusion. Putting aside the fact that most of the people present were already used to her managing the sect, they would have been fine with it anyway. After all, with Mu Ziqi’s Legendary Stage strength, even if some people were unwilling to accept it, they would not dare to jump out and court death.
Bai Ye’s announcement had only made things official.
Mu Ziqi revealed a sweet smile and nodded.
“Alright, please proceed freely. I’ve already prepared delicacies and spirit wine for you.”
Bai Ye continued, his expression exceptionally calm. He looked completely different from his usual unreliable self.
Qin Jue was dumbfounded. It ended just like that?
Are you kidding me?
There was not even a ceremony.
Originally, he wanted to see what the wedding in this world was like. However, other than the new clothes, he hadn’t seen anything interesting.
Qin Jue was speechless.
Right at this moment, Bai Ye raised his wine cup and walked over with Mu Ziqi. “Junior Brother, it’s a rare occasion. Let’s drink some wine. Hehe, back then, I was known for being able to drink a thousand cups without falling.”
“Hmph, I’m not afraid of you.”
As he spoke, Qin Jue took out a large pot of hundred-year-old spirit wine from his storage ring and placed it on the table. He boldly said, “If we’re going to drink, let’s drink this.”
It wasn’t that Qin Jue was unwilling to part with his thousand-year-old spirit wine. However, with Bai Ye’s current cultivation, Bai Ye still couldn’t handle it.
Bai Ye gulped and suddenly had a bad feeling.
An hour later, Bai Ye fell to the ground with a plop and fell asleep. He was completely drunk and could not be woken up.
Although cultivators could use their spirit energy to resolve their drunkenness, Bai Ye had drunk spirit wine that was more than 300 years old. It was too late for him to circulate his spirit energy.
“Able to drink a thousand cups? I thought you were better than this.”
Qin Jue curled his lips in disdain.
Bai Ye :”…”
“Sister-in-law, I’ll leave Senior Brother to you.”
After saying this, Qin Jue picked up Yun Xi, who was still crazily eating seafood, and prepared to leave.
As if recalling something, Qin Jue turned around and flicked his finger, causing a storage ring to lightly fall into Mu Ziqi’s hand. “This is a wedding gift for Sister-in-law.”
With that said, Qin Jue staggered out of the main hall. Seeing this, Long Zhui hurriedly followed.
Mu Ziqi was stunned. She subconsciously probed her storage ring with her spirit sense and was instantly stunned.
The vast space was filled with all kinds of heavenly treasures and spirit artifacts. Mu Ziqi only recognized some of them. However, the least valuable thing in there was still at level five. Any one of them could cause a bloody storm in the Southern Land.
Mu Ziqi looked up and found that Qin Jue had already disappeared from the main hall.
Since Bai Ye and Mu Ziqi’s wedding was simple and private, it did not cause too much of a commotion.
As for Qin Jue, he also continued to stay at home, living the life he was familiar with. Occasionally, he would drink wine and eat meat, and also tease Yun Xi and the husky. He lived every day in a relaxed and content manner.
What surprised Qin Jue was that after nearly five months, Su Yan still hadn’t come out of the Thunder Breeze Pool. To be honest, Qin Jue really missed the food Su Yan made.
Just like that, another few days passed. Luo Xun greeted Qin Jue and handed over his work in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Then he took Luo Weiwei and left for the Pure Yang Sacred Land.
At the same time, Qin Jue fell into deep thought. He suddenly realized that everyone around him was working hard to become stronger. He was the only one who was becoming stronger without having to work for it.
Although he was already used to this feeling, he still felt out of place sometimes.
As the saying went, if one wanted something, one would suffer. If one had no desires, one would become unyielding.
Perhaps loneliness was the price for being invincible!
“Forget it, I’m a little hungry. I’ll grab something to eat first.”
Thinking of this, Qin Jue’s figure flashed and disappeared from the cliff.
After a long while, a two-headed bull fiend beast was cut into several pieces and roasted on the flames.
Ever since he saw that expert from the Bull Race on the Celestial Qilin last time, Qin Jue had been obsessed with beef. This time, he could finally eat his fill.
Unfortunately, compared to that Great Void Stage expert, this bull fiend beast was only at the Heaven Stage. However, its taste was not bad, making Qin Jue very satisfied.
In the distance, Long Zhui, who had just ended his cultivation, opened his eyes and couldn’t help but shudder.
After a period of contact, Long Zhui had already discovered that Qin Jue was an out-and-out foodie. Even though Qin Jue was so strong, Qin Jue still ate every day.
Of course, this wasn’t the main point. The main point was that Qin Jue liked to eat high-level fiend beasts!
This made Long Zhui rather afraid. What if Qin Jue ran out of fiend beasts to eat one day? Would Qin Jue eat him?
He started to hope that he wouldn’t get eaten one day.
Long Zhui prayed silently.
At night, the silver moon hung like a plate on the horizon. Specks of starlight dotted the sky in Qin Jue’s field of vision, looking as if they would fall at any moment.
Perhaps it was because spring was approaching, the snow had already melted, revealing the tender green grass below.
Qin Jue’s eyes were closed as he lay on the blue stone to sleep. There were empty wine pots placed nearby, emitting an enticing fragrance.
Suddenly, Qin Jue’s expression changed slightly as he sat up.
“What’s going on?”
Rubbing his eyes, Qin Jue frowned and looked at the night sky.
He felt like someone was attacking the barrier he had set up.
Qin Jue was helpless. He stretched lazily and instantly arrived in the void outside the Spirit Central World, preparing to end the battle with a single punch before returning to sleep.
Just as he raised his fist, a familiar voice sounded, making Qin Jue stunned.
