The flames burned, emitting a blazing temperature. A few drops of oil fell, emitting sizzling sounds.
Qin Jue sat on the blue stone and raised his hand. With a wave of his hand, he cut the huge beast meat into several pieces and distributed them to Shi Tian, Yun Xi, and the distant husky. Finally, he gave a piece of meat to himself.
As for Long Zhui, the arrogance in his bones made it very difficult for him to accept food made from low-level fiend beast meat. Moreover, ever since he returned, Long Zhui had been cultivating, so Qin Jue didn’t care about him.
Yun Xi couldn’t help but praise.
It had been a long time since Yun Xi had eaten a Supreme Stage fiend beast!
Although Shi Tian was only at the Supreme Stage, the beast meat he brought was also at the Supreme Stage. Moreover, the important part was not damaged at all. He had insta-killed the fiend beast.
No wonder he could defeat the holy son of the Nine Nether Pavilion.
With Shi Tian’s current strength, he could basically defeat anyone in the same realm except for Yun Xi.
One had to know that Yun Xi possessed the inheritance of the Heavenly Emperor and would definitely be able to step into the Half God Stage in the future. On the other hand, Shi Tian basically had nothing. Just how terrifying was his talent?
Perhaps this was what it was like to have the destiny of a protagonist.
“What’s going on with the Nine Nether Pavilion?” Qin Jue took a bite of the beast meat and asked.
“Brother Qin, have you also heard about it?”
Shi Tian was surprised.
Qin Jue nodded slightly.
Although there were many reports on the Spiritnet, many details were omitted, especially since the Nine Nether Pavilion had deliberately concealed it.
As one of the people involved, Shi Tian was undoubtedly the person with the most information.
“Hmph, that so-called holy son went too far. Not only did he target me every time, but he even hired assassins to assassinate me. If I hadn’t sensed the danger in advance, I would have died long ago.”
Shi Tian gritted his teeth and said, “I originally thought that he would give up after the assassination failed. In the end, he pushed his luck and actually ambushed me while training!”
A Legendary Stage expert had ambushed a Supreme Stage expert. It could be seen how worried the Nine Nether Holy Son was about his status.
“After that… I just killed him!”
At this point, Shi Tian’s eyes flickered and he was exceptionally calm. “After I killed him, to avoid the pursuit of the Nine Nether Pavilion, I had no choice but to flee into the Demon Beast Mountain Range. I took a long detour before arriving at the Southern Land.”
After hearing Shi Tian’s description, Qin Jue was rather speechless. As expected of a youth who had walked out of the Demonic Beast Mountain Range. His style of doing things was indeed unrestrained, without any fear.
If it were anyone else who provoked the Nine Nether Pavilion, they would probably wish for nothing more than to find a hole to hide in and never come out again.
“Why did you join the Nine Nether Pavilion?” Qin Jue asked again.
“Master brought me there.”
At the mention of his master, Shi Tian sighed. “I wonder how Master is doing.”
It turned out that not long after leaving the Demon Beast Mountain Range, Shi Tian had encountered an elder of the Nine Nether Pavilion.
At that time, because he had accidentally provoked a faction, Shi Tian was besieged by more than ten Heaven Stage experts. The situation was critical, and it was the elder from the Nine Nether Pavilion who saved him.
Under the lead of that Nine Nether Pavilion elder, not only did Shi Tian join the Nine Nether Pavilion, but he also directly became his master’s last disciple. Otherwise, it would have been impossible for him to break through continuously in such a short period of time and reach the late-phase of the Supreme Stage.
Therefore, Shi Tian respected his master very much.
Qin Jue suddenly understood what had happened.
“If they dare to make things difficult for Master, I will definitely not let them off!” Shi Tian said angrily.
Qin Jue :”…”
It seemed like the Nine Nether Sect would be in trouble in the future.
After a moment of silence, Shi Tian adjusted his emotions and said, “Actually, I came to the Southern Land to find Brother Qin for another matter.”
“What is it?”
Qin Jue was curious.
Shi Tian didn’t answer. Instead, he directly took out a map and placed it in front of Qin Jue.
This map looked somewhat old. It was unknown what material it was made of, but every path on it was very clear. At the center was a red circle with four small words: Heaven Ascension Gate.
“Heaven Ascension Gate? What is this?”
Qin Jue was puzzled.
“This is what Village Chief handed to me before he left. Village Chief said that this is an ancient ruins that contains ultimate power.” Shi Tian explained.
Ancient ruins? Ultimate power?
Qin Jue’s expression was strange as he faintly said, “In that case, aren’t you afraid that I’ll kill you and snatch this map?”
Shi Tian shook his head without hesitation. “Brother Qin is so handsome. You’re definitely not a bad person!”
Qin Jue :”…”
What kind of logic was that?
However, on second thought, Shi Tian seemed to have said something similar the last time they met. Indeed, nothing had changed.
“Do you know where this red dot is marked on the map?”
Seeing that the other party trusted him so much, Qin Jue couldn’t say anything else.
However, Qin Jue didn’t care much about the so-called ancient ruins and ultimate power.
After all, the times were improving, and so was the Martial Dao. Everyone was becoming stronger, so how could there be a fixed ultimate power?
Unless the spirit qi suddenly dried up or a cataclysm occurred.
However, the Spirit Central World had never experienced such a thing.
Strictly speaking, this should be the most powerful era in the history of the Spirit Central World. How strong could the “ultimate power” contained in the ancient ruins be?
“I don’t know.”
Shi Tian shook his head without hesitation again.
Qin Jue :”…”
“But it should be in the Southern Land.” Shi Tian continued.
“How can you tell?”
“I can smell it.”
Shi Tian pointed at his nose.
Qin Jue was simply baffled.
“Are you sure?”
Qin Jue :”…”
“Cough cough, I’ll try injecting some spirit energy first.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Qin Jue flicked his finger, and a golden light bloomed like raindrops on the map.
“It’s useless. I’ve tried this method before. There was no reaction,” Shi Tian said helplessly.
Qin Jue didn’t think much of it and continued to circulate his spirit energy into the map.
Not long after, the originally gray and old map suddenly lit up with lights that soared into the sky!
Shi Tian was shocked. He had injected spirit energy into the map several times, but there was no reaction. Could it be because his spirit energy was too weak?
Without waiting for Shi Tian to figure it out, the light in the sky suddenly distorted slightly, changing as it pointed in a direction.
“That should be the location of the Ancient Ruins, right?” Qin Jue looked over and said meaningfully.
Before Shi Tian could react, the light had already dissipated, and the map had returned to its old and gray appearance.
“Don’t worry, I know where it is.”
Qin Jue said indifferently, “I’ll take you there after we finish eating.”
Only then did Shi Tian remember that he was still holding a piece of beast meat in his hand. He hurriedly wolfed it down.
Not long after, Qin Jue was full. He clapped his hands and said, “Let’s go.”
Shi Tian hurriedly stood up and followed behind Qin Jue.
Yun Xi hugged Qin Jue, unwilling to be left out.
In the next second, the three of them disappeared from their original spots.
