At the cliff behind the Xuanyi Mountain.
The sky gradually turned bright. Qin Jue got up early, stretched, and then went to the blue stone in high spirits.
“Little fellow, get ready for your dose of the spirit wine today.”
As he spoke, Qin Jue took out a pot of spirit wine and poured a few drops onto the “weed”.
After absorbing the spirit qi in the wine, the Weed suddenly became spirited. It stretched out its leaves and rubbed against Qin Jue’s body, acting coquettishly.
Qin Jue suddenly laughed, feeling whimsical. “Hahaha, how about I give you a name?”
Although Weed didn’t have a human form, it still had sentience and could be considered half a disciple of Qin Jue. Having a name would be more convenient.
Unexpectedly, Weed actually nodded his head in agreement.
“Then… how about ‘Lil’ Weed’?” Qin Jue said hesitantly.
Weed was speechless.
“Don’t like that one? Then… ‘Big Weed’?”
Weed was speechless.
“What about ‘Spirit Leaf’?”
Weed was speechless.
“Um… ‘Green Grass’?”
In the end, Weed couldn’t stand it any more. It used the tip of his leaf to write two words on the ground: Yun Xi.
“Yun Xi… What a good name!” Qin Jue’s eyes lit up, and he couldn’t help but agree, but… why did this name sound like a girl’s name?
But he quickly realized something was wrong. “Wait, you can write?”
Weed was speechless.
It was unbelievable that a weed that had just gained sentience not long ago was already able to write.
It had to be known that when Qin Jue imparted the cultivation technique to the weed, he did so by directly infusing it with spirit energy. The weed only needed to comprehend it and didn’t need to read through the words.
Then when and how did the weed learn to write?
“Did someone teach you?” Qin Jue frowned and pondered. No way, who was bored enough to do something like that?
“Forget it, forget it. Since you like this name, then I’ll call you Yun Xi from now on.”
Qin Jue thought for a long time but couldn’t think of anything. In the end, he decided to give up. In any case, this was a fantasy world, and anything could happen. Maybe the weed was gifted and learned to write by itself.
Of course, there was another possibility. The weed had transmigrated here just like him. However, this possibility was rather low.
Who would be so unlucky as to transmigrate into a weed?
“Cultivate well, Yun Xi.” After this, Qin Jue stopped thinking about the matter altogether. He leaned sideways against the blue stone and leisurely drank his wine.
His personality had always been like this. He never delved into things that he wasn’t interested in, just like with how he treated Luo Weiwei previously.
However, the name Yun Xi was quite poetic…
Soon, the sun rose, and the young girl arrived as scheduled. When she saw Qin Jue leaning against the blue stone, her expression was slightly strange.
“Here to cultivate?” Qin Jue raised his eyes slightly.
“Yup.” The girl opened her mouth and couldn’t help but ask, “I heard you’re getting married?”
“Pfft!” Qin Jue had just taken a sip of wine when he heard this sentence and spat it out.
“What did you say?!” He was somewhat dumbfounded.
Upon seeing this, the young lady appeared somewhat hesitant as she said with a complicated gaze, “Everyone else has been saying that you’re getting married. They say you’re marrying the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect.”
“Getting married? Holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect??” Qin Jue was stunned.
He suddenly recalled the absolutely stunning woman he saw at the Demon-Slaying Gathering. Although she was really beautiful, when did he say he was going to marry the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect?
“Where did this rumor come from?!” Qin Jue solemnly said.
The young girl was startled by him and hesitantly answered, “I think… it was the sect master?”
She remembered that the person who leaked the news told her firmly that the sect master had personally said this.
“Bai! Ye!” Before the word “Ye” fell, Qin Jue had already soared into the sky and flew towards the main hall of the sect!
“What… what’s wrong?” The girl looked confused, not understanding why Qin Jue had such a big reaction.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I will now be performing a special dance — Rainbow Feathers.”
On the screen, a woman in light clothing covered her mouth and chuckled. She looked shy and pure like a lotus flower.
“Tsk tsk, as expected of a female disciple of the Freezing Moon Palace. Any one of them is beautiful.” Bai Ye smacked his lips and continued watching with relish.
Right at this moment, Bai Ye suddenly heard someone shouting his name, and it was extremely loud, causing the entire hall to shake.
Immediately after, he felt an incomparably powerful force rapidly approaching!
“What’s going on?” Bai Ye was shocked.
Before he could figure it out, Qin Jue had already appeared in the main hall, his speed unbelievably fast!
“What… what’s wrong, Junior Brother?” Bai Ye forced a smile.
“Are you the one who spread the rumor about me getting married?” Qin Jue asked.
“Married? What marriage? I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Bai Ye was at a loss. He had been staying in the main hall since yesterday and didn’t know what was happening outside.
“Hmph! You still want to lie to me!” Qin Jue’s fingers cracked as he walked towards Bai Ye.
“Wait! Junior Brother, listen to my excus— No, listen to my explanation. I really didn’t say anything.” Bai Ye retreated continuously until he was stuck to the wall of the main hall, unable to retreat anymore.
“Who else could it be?” Qin Jue gritted his teeth.
“Junior Brother, you have to believe me! I definitely didn’t do it!” Bai Ye wanted to cry but had no tears. Up until now, he didn’t even know what had happened.
Who?! Who was framing me behind my back?!
“You know how much I trust you, right?” Qin Jue grinned and slowly raised his fist.
Xuanyi Mountain Sect shook three times as if it was hit by a huge object.
“What happened?” a higher-up of the sect ran out of his room and exclaimed.
“”What happened?”” The other higher-ups were equally confused.
“Could it be that another enemy has invaded?”
“Let’s go take a look.”
Everyone headed to the main hall on the mountain peak. Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying were among them.
Two minutes later, everyone arrived outside the main hall. During this time, the entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect shook a few more times. It seemed like the battle was extremely intense. However, what puzzled everyone was why there were no spirit energy fluctuations at all.
Just as everyone was preparing to enter the main hall, a figure suddenly walked out of the main hall. His white clothes fluttered in the wind, and his dragon and phoenix charisma seemed otherworldly.
Besides Qin Jue, who else could it be?
Qin Jue was slightly startled when he saw the many higher-ups of the sect outside the hall. “What are you all doing here?”
Shouldn’t we be asking you this?
Finally, Zhang Jichen, who was the most familiar with Qin Jue, stepped forward and said, “We heard the commotion and came over. Uncle-Master, what were you doing inside?”
Qin Jue suddenly understood and waved his hand. “Don’t worry, it’s nothing.”
With that said, he passed everyone and disappeared from sight.
Not long after, another figure walked out of the hall. When it got closer, everyone realized that it was Bai Ye!
However, Bai Ye no longer had his usual sage-like appearance. His face was bruised and swollen, making him look extremely miserable.
“Sect Master, you…”
Everyone was dumbfounded.
“Oh, I was studying a cultivation technique I came up with just now. When I was circulating my spirit energy, I accidentally made a mistake and caused my face to swell up.” Bai Ye pretended to be profound.
“But surely, it wouldn’t be to the point where your eyes turned green…”
“Hmph! What do you know? My Heaven Stage cultivation isn’t for nothing. There’s naturally some profundity within it.”
After saying this, Bai Ye didn’t give the crowd a chance to ask any more questions. He turned to Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying and said, “You two, come in with me.”
The two of them looked at each other and had a bad feeling.
