The Xuanyi Mountain Sect shook violently. Accompanied by a shocking spirit energy fluctuation, vibrations spread out, raising a violent wind that filled the sky, blowing the grass and leaves crazily.
“Old Wang! What are you doing? Don’t hit my face… Ah!”
“Bai Ye, stop right there!”
“Stop fighting, stop fighting. If you continue fighting, you’ll become stupid!”
This day would be recorded in the history books of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect because the First Elder had actually fought with the Sect Master.
In the end, Bai Ye was embarrassed to fight back and was beaten up by the First Elder.
As the only audience present who had witnessed the entire process, Qin Jue was rather emotional. It was hard to imagine that the First Elder, who had already become like that, could actually release such powerful spirit energy in a battle. It was simply inconceivable.
From this, it could be seen how much the First Elder hated Bai Ye.
The price was that the First Elder directly fell unconscious the next day. If it weren’t for Qin Jue healing him, the First Elder would probably have fainted for at least half a month before waking up.
“Old Wang, don’t be so angry. I did it for your own good.”
Bai Ye said earnestly, “Although the Exploding Spirit Pill does have many drawbacks, I could still tell that you were already close to the peak of the Heaven Stage when you fought me yesterday. This proves that the Exploding Spirit Pill is still very useful.”
At this moment, Bai Ye’s face was bruised and swollen, like a pig’s head. Especially his two eyes, they had completely turned black, making him look exceptionally comical.
It couldn’t be helped. Bai Ye was in the wrong and was too embarrassed to fight back, so he was beaten up like this.
First Elder :”…”
First Elder was baffled.
“Here, this is the Exploding Spirit Pill powder that I refined overnight. I even specially improved it, and there are absolutely no side effects this time. As long as you consume this Exploding Spirit Pill powder before cultivating, you will definitely be able to step into the peak of the Heaven Stage in less than three months.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Bai Ye withdrew a jade bottle with a solemn expression and placed it in front of the First Elder.
Taking a deep breath, the First Elder directly raised his hand and punched!
Fortunately, Bai Ye reacted quickly and dodged in time.
“Hey, Old Wang, don’t push your luck. Don’t think that I’m really afraid of you!”
“Get lost!” The First Elder shouted angrily.
“Hmph, so be it.”
Bai Ye pursed his lips.
“Also, take this bottle of medicinal powder with you!”
“What? You really don’t want it?”
Helpless, Bai Ye could only put away the jade bottle and turn to leave.
“Hu, Hu, I’m so angry!”
Watching Bai Ye leave, the First Elder slapped the table beside him in anger.
The stone table that was enough to withstand the full-power attack of an Earth Stage cultivator collapsed with a bang, turning into countless fragments that fell to the ground.
“Cough cough, First Elder, you should be fine now, right?”
At this moment, Qin Jue, who had been standing aside silently, suddenly asked.
“Ah, I’m fine. I’m fine. Thank you, Junior Brother Qin.”
The First Elder was stunned for a moment before remembering that Qin Jue was also in the room. “If it weren’t for Junior Brother Qin, I’m afraid I would have been in a coma for at least half a month.”
The reason why the First Elder was able to release spirit energy that was close to the peak of the Heaven Stage yesterday was indeed because the Exploding Spirit Pill powder did have a slight effect.
Most importantly, the First Elder’s anger towards Bai Ye had already reached the limit. When he fought Bai Ye yesterday, he was basically sacrificing his health.
It was precisely because of this that the First Elder fell into a coma. If it weren’t for Qin Jue nourishing him with spirit energy, his foundation might have even been shaken.
“You’re welcome. It was nothing.”
Qin Jue waved his hand and changed the topic. “By the way, when is First Elder planning to return to Brilliance City?”
“Hai, maybe tomorrow.”
The First Elder sighed. “It’s all Bai Ye’s fault. Otherwise, I would have gone back yesterday.”
Qin Jue :”…”
“Cough cough, First Elder, please accept this.”
“What is it?”
Puzzled, the First Elder took the storage ring Qin Jue handed over.
First Elder was immediately shocked when he opened it. It was filled with all kinds of high-level cultivation resources. First Elder had never even seen some of the items before.
In comparison, the “protection fees” paid by Brilliance City were no different from trash.
“This… this is…”
The First Elder’s hands trembled and he was dumbfounded. For a moment, he did not know how to describe his feelings.
Qin Jue was not surprised by the First Elder’s reaction. He indifferently said, “These are all cultivation resources for the First Elder. In addition, there’s something I hope the First Elder can cooperate with.”
“What is it?”
The First Elder gulped and said bitterly, “Let’s make this clear first. I will definitely not betray the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.”
Hearing this, Qin Jue was stunned and couldn’t help but smile bitterly. “First Elder, you’re thinking too much. How could I ask you to betray the Xuanyi Mountain Sect?”
After considering his words, Qin Jue explained, “I want you to resign from your position as the City Lord of Brilliance City.”
The First Elder was stunned and thought that he had misheard. “Why?”
It had to be known that Brilliance City occupied an extremely important geographical location within a radius of 5,000 kilometers. Not only was its cultivation resources extremely abundant, but it was also a place that many factions had to pass through. Otherwise, the Six Great Clans wouldn’t have been so eager to build stations in the Brilliance City.
Unfortunately, with the rise of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, the Six Great Clans could only choose to give up.
“Mm… we might be moving out of this area after a while.” Qin Jue answered.
First Elder subconsciously asked, “Where are we moving to?”
“I’ll tell you when the time comes.”
In fact, Qin Jue had already thought of this long ago. Originally, he planned to find a place by himself and directly move the Xuanyi Mountain Sect over.
But after hearing that the Heavenly Emperor wanted to rebuild the Heavenly Palace, Qin Jue suddenly felt that he might be able to move to the Heavenly Palace, so he asked the Heavenly Emperor to save him a place.
The environment there was not inferior to the White Dragon World at all, and might even be better.
As the saying went, people should aim higher.
No matter what, the Spirit Central World was only a low-level dimension.
In the past, Qin Jue might not have cared so much. However, as he started to interact with higher realms, he gradually realized that a Great Sage Stage expert could only barely be considered as strong.
In a place like this, unless one had the destiny of a protagonist like Long Zhen, one would never have a chance to advance to the Great Void Stage. For most people, the Great Sage Stage was the end.
And even Long Zhen had stayed in the lower realm of the Great Void for thousands of years because of the environment restriction.
With the talent of Bai Ye and the others, they might not be considered much in that void. However the Heavenly Palace still had dozens of ancient True God Stage remnant souls. With their help, Bai Ye and the others would have nothing to worry about.
“Fine, but you have to give me some time.”
After pondering for a moment, the First Elder nodded slightly.
The factions in Brilliance City were complicated and involved many people. Even if the First Elder wanted to “resign”, it would at least take him ten days.
“No hurry.” Qin Jue said indifferently.
“Does… that old man Bai Ye know about this?” As if recalling something, the First Elder asked hesitantly.
“Don’t worry, I’ll tell him.”
Qin Jue stood up and said, “First Elder, rest well. I’ll see you later.”
