Outside of Brilliance City, many cultivators held weapons in their hands as they guarded the city gates. Anyone who wanted to enter the city had to pay a certain fee in order to pass through. This was a rule that had existed for thousands of years.
What was worth mentioning was that although the Wei Clan was the master of Brilliance City, it wasn’t the only Martial Dao faction there. However, the other factions were basically their subordinates and were controlled by them.
Because the Cloud Piercing Spirit Ship had the Wei Clan’s insignia on it, no one dared to stop it, and it entered the city without a hitch.
Wei Jia cautiously glanced at Qin Jue before controlling the Cloud Piercing Spirit Ship to land in a courtyard below.
Suddenly, Wei Zheng’s excited laughter could be heard. “Hahaha, you could have taken the road to heaven, but instead, you chose to barge into hell!” Immediately after, he broke through the wooden board and flew out of the room.
“I’ve already sent a voice transmission to the clan. You’re dead!” Wei Zheng looked down at Qin Jue with a proud expression.
Although he had suffered the ravages of those two healing pills, at the same time, he had covertly used a secret technique to inform his clan of what had happened at the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. At this moment, a net had already been set up in the city, and even if Qin Jue had wings, it would be difficult for him to escape!
And once he was killed, Wei Zheng planned to destroy the Xuanyi Mountain Sect as soon as possible, especially that Sect Master Bai!
“Elder… Elder Wei Zheng.” Seeing him floating in the air, Wei Jia spoke slowly with a strange tone.
“What is it?” Wei Zheng frowned.
“You… you forgot to bring your pants up,” Wei Jia reminded.
Before he could finish speaking, Wei Zheng felt a cold sensation on his crotch. His legs trembled, and he almost fell from the sky.
Wei Zheng didn’t have the time to think too much about it and hurriedly pulled up his pants while his face flushed red. He was a dignified peak Heaven Stage expert that had long since transcended the mortal world. But apparently, someone like him could also forget to pull up his pants because of diarrhea!
This was an utter humiliation!
At this moment, a visible barrier of spirit energy suddenly appeared above the city. In the blink of an eye, it enveloped the entire city, forming an indestructible “fortress”.
This commotion immediately caused an uproar.
“What’s going on? It seems like someone activated the Great City-Barrier Formation.”
“Could it be that enemies are coming?”
“What kind of joke is that? This is Brilliance City. Apart from the Four Major Sects, who would dare to attack our city?”
All of a sudden, a hubbub of discussion erupted in every corner of the city. Some were confused; some were surprised.
After all, it had been several decades since the Great City-Barrier Formation had been activated. Since it was activated, it meant that something major had happened.
“Hahaha, you’re dead meat!” seeing this, Wei Zheng said smiling as he hurriedly changed the subject to lessen his embarrassment.
Qin Jue ignored him and took out a pot of wine from his storage ring. After taking a sip, he said, “Since you’re already here, show yourself, and we can fight openly.”
After a moment of silence, a voice filled with boundless dignity suddenly sounded. “You are indeed a Supreme Stage expert.”
As soon as he finished speaking, a gray-robed old man with white hair but a young appearance suddenly appeared.
The old man’s aura was faintly discernible, but it gave off an unparalleled feeling, as if even heaven and earth were prostrating before his feet.
“”Patriarch!”” The moment they saw the gray-robed elder, Wei Zheng and Wei Jia were overjoyed.
This gray-robed old man was the current strongest person in the Wei Clan. He was a super powerhouse who had stepped into the Supreme Stage a hundred years ago!
“You’re the Wei Clan Patriarch?” Qin Jue sized up the gray-robed old man and revealed a thoughtful expression.
Strictly speaking, this was not the first time he had seen the gray-robed elder. When he had participated in the Demon-Slaying Gathering, this elder had also been present. It was just that Qin Jue had been standing in a corner, so the gray-robed elder didn’t recognize him.
Compared to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, the Wei Clan was considered a reputable force even in the Southern Land. Naturally, they received more attention during the Demon-Slaying Gathering. Furthermore, the gray-robed old man was a genuine Supreme Stage expert.
“Haha, I thought that Wei Zheng was lying to me. I never thought that a mere Xuanyi Mountain Sect would actually have a Supreme Stage expert.” The gray-robed elder sighed.
“Patriarch, the two young masters and Elder Wei Ping died by his hands, and he even took the two Supreme Stage spirit artifacts. You must take revenge!” Wei Zheng pointed at Qin Jue and shouted, his previous respectful appearance gone.
“Patriarch, please avenge the two young masters and my younger brother!” Wei Jia immediately chimed in.
The gray-robed old man seemed extraordinarily calm, and not the slightest bit of anger could be seen. However, the words he spoke were filled with killing intent. “Don’t worry, he won’t be able to leave here alive.”
As soon as he finished speaking, dozens of Heaven Stage cultivators suddenly appeared in the background and surrounded Qin Jue in multiple layers.
This was the foundation of the Wei clan. In other places, a Heaven Stage expert who was already strong enough to establish a sect elsewhere would only be an ordinary elder in the Wei Clan.
“Although I do not know how you managed to become a Supreme Stage expert at such a young age, I’m sure I’ll soon find out all about it after I capture you.” The gray-robed old man’s eyes blazed with a deep meaning.
Clearly, he already regarded Qin Jue’s capture as a done deal.
Unlike Wei Zheng, the old man was more concerned about Qin Jue himself. He could see that Qin Jue was definitely not an old monster disguised as a youth.
Originally, when he received the news from Wei Zheng, the gray-robed elder was unable to restrain his anger and planned to kill Qin Jue no matter what. But when he saw Qin Jue, he quickly gave up on this idea.
This was a Supreme Stage expert in his teens! If he could obtain Qin Jue’s secrets, he might be able to break through the Supreme Stage realm and reach the Legendary Stage, or even the Saint Stage!
In comparison, the lives of Wei Longtao and the others, as well as the two Supreme Stage spirit artifacts, were simply insignificant.
The gray-robed elder took a deep breath and suppressed the joy in his heart as he ordered, “Get into formation!”
Dozens of Heaven Stage experts immediately formed seals with their hands, drawing in the surrounding heaven-and-earth spirit energy to quickly form a giant rune on Qin Jue’s head.
“What is this?” Qin Jue was rather curious. This was the first time he had seen such an attack method. Shouldn’t runes be attached to spirit artifacts?
Before Qin Jue could figure it out, the huge rune had already fallen.
The air froze, and the entire world fell silent.
“Hmm?” Qin Jue quickly realized that this rune could forcefully suppress the spirit energy in a cultivator’s body; however, it was useless against him.
“This is the Forbidden Spirit Rune of our Wei Clan. It’s condensed by thirty-two Heaven Stage experts, and even if you’re at the Supreme Stage, you’ll be affected as long as you’re within range of the rune markings.” The gray-robed elder raised his voice and added, “Yunge, it’s your turn! Remember, we want him alive.”
In the distance, a sharp sword intent, tyrannical beyond compare, rose up and slowly approached. From the moment it appeared, it had already locked onto Qin Jue.
“That’s… the Supreme Stage spirit artifact — Soul Devouring Sword!”
Everyone was shocked.
Among the Wei Family’s three Supreme Stage spirit artifacts, the Soul Devouring Sword’s destructive power was the strongest. Each of its users became extremely powerful and could rarely be matched by enemies of the same realm.
The current user was the second Supreme Stage expert of the Wei Clan, Wei Yunge!
In order to capture Qin Jue, the Wei Clan’s two Supreme Stage experts had spared no expense and decided to attack together!
“He’s dead meat!” Wei Zheng was ecstatic.
