Chapter 306: Goodbye Old Friend
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
During the day, the sky was clear and the wind was pleasant. Sunlight shone down, making it exceptionally warm.
“Shocking! The inner sect disciple of the Nine Nether Pavilion has defected and killed the holy son!”
“Half of the higher-ups of the Nine Nether Pavilion have been dispatched, but they still haven’t found the traitor!”
“Unbelievable. The Legendary Stage Nine Nether Holy Son was actually killed by a Supreme Stage inner sect disciple!”
As soon as Qin Jue opened the spirit tablet, he saw overwhelming news being updated, all of which were in striking red words, giving Qin Jue a fright.
“What’s going on?”
Strictly speaking, it had been several months since Qin Jue had used the spirit tablet. If it weren’t for the fact that he was a little bored today, he probably wouldn’t have thought of using this thing.
Because it was a spirit tablet given to him by Long Zhen, most of the news inside were about the Sacred Land of the Central Continent.
Among them, the Nine Nether Pavilion was a top faction only inferior to the Eight Great Sacred Lands in the Central Continent. It had two Grand Saint Stage experts holding down the fort. If not for its lack of foundation, it would have already replaced the Spirit Clan and become the new twelfth Sacred Clan.
Now, an inner sect disciple had suddenly defected and killed the holy son. It could be imagined how explosive the news was.
Of course, this wasn’t the main point. The main point was that Qin Jue saw a familiar name in the news about the defected disciple.
Qin Jue pondered for a moment, his expression slightly stunned. Could it be that youth from Stone Village?
As he continued to read, Qin Jue suddenly understood.
Although the Nine Nether Pavilion tried their best to hide it, the news was still dug out by some top factions with the backing of the Eight Great Sacred Lands.
Three months ago, an elder of the Nine Nether Pavilion who was out traveling suddenly brought a youth back. After checking the youth’s cultivation, they realized that he had a super strong cultivation talent. Therefore, tbis youth directly skipped many procedures and became the last disciple of that elder.
As for the youth, it was none other than Shi Tian, who had just escaped from the Demon Beast Mountain Range.
In the next two months, Shi Tianyong improved greatly, increasing his cultivation rapidly. In the end, he stepped into the late-phase of the Supreme Stage, shocking the Nine Nether Pavilion.
At this speed, if nothing went wrong, he might even advance to the Saint Stage within half a year!
Therefore, sensing the danger, the Nine Nether Holy Son began to make things difficult for Shi Tian. He even mobilized the forces of the outside world to assassinate Shi Tian!
This kind of situation was actually very common among many large factions. After all, it was only natural for other disciples to get jealous and try to inflict harm.
The only difference was that the Nine Nether Holy Son had messed with the wrong person!
After all, Shi Tian was someone who had the destiny of a protagonist. How could he be killed so easily?
In the end, the Nine Nether Holy Son was miserably killed and died without a grave.
On the other hand, not only had Shi Tian successfully escaped, but even the Nine Nether Pavilion failed to find him.
However, in Qin Jue’s opinion, even if the Nine Nether Pavilion found Shi Tian, he believed that they wouldn’t do anything to him. They might even make him the new holy son.
One had to know that this was a world where the strong were respected, and dead people were worthless.
No matter how powerful the Nine Nether Holy Son was when he was alive, he was already dead. Despite his strength, he was still killed by a youth whose cultivation was lower than his. As long as the higher-ups of the Nine Nether Pavilion were not idiots, they would definitely not attack Shi Tian.
Unfortunately, Shi Tian did not think of this and chose to flee.
However, as someone with the destiny of a protagonist, Shi Tian seemed to have done what he was supposed to do. If the higher-ups of the Nine Nether Pavilion ended up offending Shi Tian because of this, it was not impossible for them to be destroyed by Shi Tian, who will definitely make a comeback in the future.
Qin Jue wondered how Shi Tian would feel when he finally met Chen Beixuan one day.
Shaking his head with a bitter smile, Qin Jue glanced over and saw a familiar name.
The Divine Martial Empire’s monarch, Li Qiye, had launched a large-scale war and launched a surprise attack from thousands of kilometers away. He defeated the enemy army and successfully annexed the Star Dou Empire, shocking the entire world.
Although compared to the Nine Nether Pavilion, the Divine Martial Empire could only be considered a middle-tier faction, the talent that Li Qiye displayed was not inferior to those geniuses from the Sacred Lands. In the future, he would definitely be able to stand at the peak of the Spirit Central World.
Turning off the spirit tablet, Qin Jue sighed with emotion. With the rise of so many “protagonists”, those old factions would start facing a lot of trouble.
However, speaking of which, the Spirit Central World was clearly only a low-level dimension. How was it possible for so many “protagonists” to appear one after another?
First, it was Long Zhen. Then, it was Li Qiye, Shi Tian, Chen Beixuan… There were so many of them they could even play a game of mahjong together.
Of course, the most exaggerated one was still Qin Jue himself. If an ordinary “protagonist” could be said to rise with the speed of a rocket, then Qin Jue could basically be seen as a hacker with completely unreasonable strength.
Thinking of this, Qin Jue couldn’t help but laugh. Just as he was about to get up and cook something to eat, Wu Ying walked over from afar.
“Uncle-Master, there’s someone outside looking for you.”
After Luo Xun’s many guidance, Wu Ying was clearly much stronger than before. He was only half a step away from the Heaven Stage and looked rather reliable.
“Someone’s looking for me?”
Qin Jue was stunned. Could it be Shen Zhiwen?
In the entire Southern Land, besides the members of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect and Su Yan, Qin Jue only knew the middle-age youth, Shen Zhiwen. Su Yan had a teleportation passageway, so there was no need for her to come in from the outside.
Therefore, Qin Jue could only think of Shen Zhiwen.
“Yes, he’s a very cute youth. But because I’ve never seen him before, I didn’t let him follow me in.”
Wu Ying pondered.
Qin Jue frowned after hearing this. Coupled with the news he had just seen, an unbelievable idea suddenly appeared in his heart. He immediately spread out his spirit sense and locked onto his target.
Qin Jue rolled his eyes and his face darkened. He didn’t understand how this youth had arrived here.
In Qin Jue’s spirit sense, a slightly tender youth in beast skin was standing outside the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, curiously observing the surrounding environment without any fear.
Although the youth had changed greatly after half a year and his cultivation had also reached the Supreme Stage, Qin Jue still recognized him at a glance. It was none other than Shi Tian!
Sighing, Qin Jue waved his hand lightly, and the youth immediately passed through space and arrived at the cliff.
The youth screamed and hurriedly assumed a defensive posture, preparing to enter a combat state at any moment.
In the next moment, the youth was overjoyed. “I finally found you!”
“Why are you looking for me?”
Qin Jue was speechless.
“Didn’t Brother Qin say that I could come and find you one day?”
The youth was stunned and revealed a blank expression.
Qin Jue :”…”
He did seem to have said this before. However, he should have only told the youth that he was in the Southern Land.
“Ahem, what I mean is, how did you find me?”
Qin Jue hurriedly changed his words.
Hearing this, the youth pointed at his nose and said proudly, “My nose can distinguish anything, including Brother Qin’s smell.”
Qin Jue :”…”
Qin Jue was baffled.
It almost sounded as if Qin Jue had bad body odor.
“By the way, I brought Brother Qin a gift.”
Without waiting for Qin Jue to react, the youth suddenly took out a large piece of beast meat from his storage ring. Because he had grown up in the Demon Beast Mountain Range, food was the most precious gift in the youth’s eyes.
Qin Jue :”…”
