“What is this?” Qin Jue was puzzled. Although he didn’t know what it was, the more he looked at it, the more it looked like a tablet computer from his previous life.
“Oh, this is called a Spirit Tablet. It’s a high-end product passed down from the Sacred Lands of the Central Continent. It can be connected to the Spiritnet. Without even leaving your house, you can read about what happens in other places in the Southern Land at any time. I bought it with great difficulty,” Bai Ye explained.
Qin Jue: “???”
Was it really a tablet?
And it could even go online?
Was he not the only transmigrator in this world?
“In addition, I can learn a lot of interesting knowledge here.” As he spoke, Bai Ye entered the word “livestream” and pressed search.
Qin Jue: “…”
How are you so skilled with this?
Soon, more than ten small squares appeared on the screen. The picture on each square was different, but it could be seen that they were all occupied by beauties.
Bai Ye clicked on one of the squares, and the image instantly turned into a woman in fiery-red clothes. Even though she was wearing a veil, one could still tell that she was very beautiful.
The red-clothed woman’s face looked as smooth as silk as she danced along to the music. She was extremely moving, especially her slender waist that tempted grasping. The audience couldn’t help but feel their mouths go dry.
“How is it? Isn’t it nice?” Bai Ye revealed a meaningful smile. “This is called a livestream. Many cultivators watch this, and they can even give gifts. It’s a pity that the gifts are so expensive. Us lowly cultivators can’t afford it.”
Qin Jue never expected that livestreams would be so popular even in another world.
But… what kind of person created this thing?!
“Do you want one, Junior Brother?” Seeing Qin Jue remain silent for a long time, Bai Ye smiled.
Just as Qin Jue was about to speak, Bai Ye suddenly changed the topic and seriously said, “This time, you defeated the invading enemies, annihilated the Wei Clan, and saved the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. You have made great contributions. As the Sect Master of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect and someone who has always been clear about rewards and punishments, I shall reward you with this incredible Spirit Tablet.”
Without waiting for Qin Jue to refute, Bai Ye directly shoved the jade tablet into his hand.
Qin Jue: “???”
When did you become so generous?
No, there must be something wrong!
As expected, Bai Ye continued, “However… in order to prevent you from being disturbed by outsiders, I’ve decided not to keep the truth to ourselves, and I’ll be the one taking all the credit for what has happened!” Bai Ye spoke impassionedly and righteously, as if he was doing all this for Qin Jue’s sake.
Qin Jue instantly understood what was going on and could only smile bitterly at this.
However, he was never one to be interested in credit. Being able to get such a “tablet computer” had already been a pleasant surprise.
Having accepted the tablet, Qin Jue said helplessly, “Alright, then I’ll go back first.”
“Wait, I have something to ask you,” Bai Ye said mysteriously.
“What is it?”
“What’s your relationship with that girl?”
“…” Qin Jue suddenly regretted telling Bai Ye about this matter via spirit-energy transmission before he left.
Originally, he had wanted Bai Ye to help take care of Luo Weiwei, to prevent others from treating her as a spy if it was discovered that she wasn’t cultivating the Clear Void Scripture.
But he had failed to account for Bai Ye’s curiosity.
“No comment!” Glaring at Bai Ye, Qin Jue strode away.
“Tsk, forget it then.” Bai Ye pursed his lips.
Seeing Qin Jue walk away, Bai Ye smiled and took out a similar jade tablet from his storage ring. With this, he wouldn’t feel bored even if he only stayed in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect in the future.
“Good thing I bought two.”
At this moment, Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying walked out of the hall one after another. “Master, what were you talking about with Uncle-Master just now?”
“It’s nothing. Your Uncle-Master has recently fallen in love with a girl,” Bai Ye answered casually before turning around and entering the hall.
Zhang Jichen: “???”
Wu Ying: “???”
What? Uncle-Master actually had a girl he fancied?
The two of them looked at each other and saw the surprise in each other’s eyes. But on second thought, Qin Jue was an existence that was able to kill a Heaven Stage expert with a single strike. Therefore, the girl he fancied must also be extremely extraordinary. She might even be the holy maiden of some large sect!
When they thought of this, the fire of gossip in their hearts burned fiercely, and they had even temporarily forgotten about all the things that had happened with the Wei Clan.
This is very shocking news, the two of them thought at the same time. Then, as if they understood each other’s intentions, they went off in different directions.
Before long, Zhang Jichen arrived at a place where many higher-ups of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect were gathered.
He got straight to the point. “Hey, did you guys know? Uncle-Master Qin has fallen in love with the holy maiden of some large sect!”
Everyone was stunned for a moment before they exploded!
“It can’t be. Has Uncle-Master ever left Xuanyi Mountain Sect?”
“How is that possible? Uncle-Master Qin is always either drinking or singing. It’s been almost half a year since I even last saw him. How could he suddenly develop an interest in the holy maiden of some large sect? I don’t believe it.”
“That’s right, that’s right. You must be wrong.”
Most of these higher-ups of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect were of the same generation as Zhang Jichen. It could be said that they had watched Qin Jue grow up and had a good understanding about his way of doing things, so they were extremely doubtful about what Zhang Jichen had just told them.
Moreover, Qin Jue spent most of his time holed up at the cliff and never went anywhere. How could he fall in love with some great sect’s holy maiden if he had never even seen one?
Faced with doubt, Zhang Jichen had a calm expression. “My master told me this himself. Have you all forgotten that Uncle-Master just participated in the Demon-Slaying Gathering some time ago?”
The words left everyone speechless. They began to waver.
“Hmm. That is true…”
“Uncle-Master rarely leaves the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. But it would make sense if he had met her at the Demon-Slaying Gathering.”
“It could be true. After all, he’s still young.”
“It reminds me of that day when I ran under the setting sun. Sigh… My lost youth.”
The higher-ups of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect began to spread rumors. Since they had nothing to do, they might as well gossip.
Ten minutes later, these higher-ups left one by one due to various matters. Some left to teach their disciples lessons; some went home to rest, and others went to discuss cultivation with their friends.
At the same time, Wu Ying was going through the same process.
And the two people who were responsible for spreading this “explosive” news also heaved a sigh of relief in satisfaction. This kind of thing was not meant to be kept to oneself, or else it would just be too suffocating!
Soon, one by one, astonished voices sounded within the sect.
“Have you heard? Uncle-Grandmaster is dating the holy maiden of a certain large sect!”
“Not only that, that large sect might very well be the Thunder Breeze Sect!”
“What? Uncle-Grandmaster is dating the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect?”
“Thunder Breeze Sect? Isn’t that one of the Four Major Sects?”
“Heh heh, don’t you know what kind of a person our Uncle-Grandmaster is? So what if she’s the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect? It probably wasn’t hard for someone like Uncle-Grandmaster to woo her. If you don’t believe me, then ask the sect master yourself!”
“Incredible news! Incredible news! Uncle-Grandmaster is going to marry the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect soon!”
“Heavens, Uncle-Grandmaster is getting married! The other party is the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect!”
As the rumors continued to spread, this matter became more and more exaggerated. In the end, it was almost rumored that Qin Jue was going to marry the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect tomorrow.
Many of the new female disciples who were full of admiration for Qin Jue were heartbroken. They lost their desire to cultivate and only wanted to be as idle as salted fish.
Qin Jue, who was at the back of the Xuanyi Mountain, was completely unaware of what was happening. He was lying on the blue stone and leisurely drinking spirit wine.
