Chapter 324: Blue Essence City
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Seven Realms, Nine Provinces Continent, Blue Province.
Sparkling rain continued to fall, wetting the surrounding environment as it slid down the leaves and poured on the ground.
As far as the eye could see, the mountains and rivers seemed connected, looking like a beautiful painting.
In the rain, three figures silently appeared, breaking the silence.
“Wow, so beautiful!”
Killing Dao’s eyes lit up as she praised.
As a “divine artifact” that had stayed in the Yin World for hundreds of thousands of years, Killing Dao was now filled with curiosity towards anything in the outside world. She was simply like a child and was extremely happy.
Unfortunately, that rough voice of hers really ruined her beauty.
“Uh… By the way, Master, what are we doing here?”
Killing Dao turned to look at Qin Jue.
“Ahem, I’m trying to think of a way to return to the Inner Realm first.”
Qin Jue put his hands behind his back and indifferently said, “The strongest expert of this continent is in the city ahead. From there, we might be able to learn more about this world.”
Hearing this, Killing Dao looked in the direction of the voice and indeed saw a huge city. It was vast and boundless, even more prosperous than the holy city of the Ming Province. The cultivators who came and went were all walking as well. They even deliberately restrained their auras and lowered their stances.
Above the city gate were two words: Blue Essence.
Blue Essence City!
All the living beings of the Seven Realms, regardless of which continent they were on, knew that there was a Half God Stage expert holding down the fort in Blue Essence City!
Killing Dao nodded to indicate she understood.
Just as Qin Jue and the others were about to enter the city, a luxurious battleship carrying various weapons suddenly flew over from a distance at an incomparably fast speed and arrived in an instant.
Qin Jue raised his eyebrows. He seemed to have seen the pattern on that battleship somewhere before?
The Ying Clan of Ming Province!
Qin Jue was sure that he hadn’t seen wrongly. The pattern on that battleship was almost identical to the one on the Ying Clan’s air-transportation spirit artifact!
In other words, this battleship was from the Ying Clan!
He wondered what was going on.
Why was the Ying Clan’s battleship here?
Was the Ying Clan declaring war on Blue Essence City?
Are you kidding me?
Unless Patriarch Ying had already stepped into the Half God Stage.
Although Half God Stage experts were not True God Stage experts, they had at least come into contact with the God Stage. With a single move, they could cause the stars to collapse, and they were far from being comparable to Great Void Stage experts.
Just as Qin Jue was puzzled, the battleship suddenly stopped. More than ten figures flew out and landed outside Blue Essence City.
The person in the lead was a dignified middle-aged man with a deep and lofty appearance. His brows were somewhat similar to Ying Yue’s, and his aura was deep, like a lofty mountain that was unshakeable. Just by standing there, the rain automatically separated and could not approach him at all. He had shockingly reached the tenth realm of the Great Void Stage.
Presumably, this middle-aged man was the current patriarch of the Ying Clan, Ying Yue’s father, Ying Shan!
Indeed, he was the same as described in Lou Luo’s memories. Even without doing anything, he gave off a calm and heavy feeling.
“Eh? That person’s aura is similar to Ying Yue’s.”
After sensing the commotion here, Killing Dao was rather surprised.
She had been paying attention to other things before, so she did not notice the pattern on the Ying Clan’s air-transportation spirit artifact. Now, upon seeing the figure, she could not help but be somewhat surprised.
Qin Jue :”…”
Nonsense. They were father and daughter, and the cultivation techniques they cultivated were all the same. How could their auras not be similar?
“Blue Essence City, long time no see.”
Ying Shan looked up at the tall city in front of him with a complicated expression.
He remembered that the last time he had come here was because of the Seven Realms War. Unexpectedly, hundreds of years had passed in the blink of an eye. Even with the cultivation of Ying Shan, he couldn’t help but sigh with emotion.
“Patriarch, there’s news from the clan that the Third Miss has returned.” A ruddy old man in a black robe stepped forward and said respectfully.
“That girl has been out for so long. It’s about time she came back.”
After a pause, Ying Shan asked, “Is everything alright?”
“Everything is fine, but…”
The old man hesitated.
“Yes, the three young masters of the Ling, Mo, and Yan Clans all died in this void training. So did the genius insect cultivator of the Insect Clan.”
The old man smiled bitterly.
“Hehe, I thought something big had happened. It’s better for those three pieces of trash to die sooner so that they won’t burden the clan. If it weren’t for the alliance, would they be worthy of forming a team with my daughter?”
Ying Shan said indifferently, “As for the Insect Race, why do I care if their genius dies?”
The old man opened his mouth, speechless.
Although the talent of those three young masters was not bad, they were extremely profligate. They caused trouble everywhere, causing their cultivation to stagnate and be stuck at the second realm of the Great Void Stage.
At this rate, sooner or later, they would provoke an existence they shouldn’t have provoked and bring disaster to their clan.
At that time, as the Alliance Master, the patriarch of the Ying Clan will even have to lend a hand.
In a way, it was indeed a good thing that the three of them were dead now. However, he did not know what the patriarchs of those three clans would think.
As for the Insect Race, they were not within the scope of the alliance at all. Let alone a genius, even if all of them died, Ying Shan would not even spare them a glance.
“However, it’s somewhat inappropriate for my third daughter to be the only one to return alive from this void training. Hmm… how about this? Notify the Ling Clan, the Mo Clan, and the Yan Clan and tell them we’ll give some cultivation resources to them as compensation. If they are still unsatisfied, tell them to come and find me.”
After pondering for a moment, Ying Shan ordered.
Upon receiving the order, the old man immediately activated his secret technique and began to contact the clans.
At this moment, another battleship appeared on the horizon, but the pattern on it was completely different from the Ying Clan’s. Immediately after, more than a dozen figures flew out and landed not far from Ying Shan and the others, beginning a confrontation.
“Hahaha, Patriarch Ying, how have you been?”
The person who spoke was a long-haired man with a feminine appearance and facial features that resembled a woman’s. He was very similar to Killing Dao. The difference was that he was not as beautiful as Killing Dao.
Furthermore, Killing Dao was a genuine woman. On the other hand, the feminine man looked more like a defective product of a failed surgery.
“Damn transvestite, stay away from me.” Ying Shan said impolitely.
The feminine man was suddenly speechless.
“Yingshan, don’t think that I’m really afraid of you.” Taking a deep breath, the feminine man said coldly.
Because of the special cultivation technique, Zhu Huang looked neither male nor female. Therefore, he hated people calling him a transvestite the most in his life. If it weren’t for the fact that he was outside Blue Essence City, he would have probably been unable to resist fighting Ying Shan long ago.
“Hehe, damned transvestite, is there any room for negotiation between the two of us?”
Ying Shan had never liked to take the initiative to cause trouble. However, if trouble came knocking on his door, Ying Shan would absolutely not be afraid, especially when he knew the strength of the other party..
For example, he knew how strong Zhu Huang was.
“Alright! Ying Shan, remember what you said. Don’t regret it.”
Suppressing the anger in his heart, Zhu Huang waved his hand. “Let’s go!”
As soon as he finished speaking, Zhu Huang directly led his subordinates into Blue Essence City.
Ying Shan sneered and also entered Blue Essence City with many Ying Clan experts.
In the distance, witnessing this scene, Qin Jue faintly said, “Let’s go in too.”
