“W-what are you planning?”
Seeing Qin Jue staring at him excitedly, Guan Ce couldn’t help but shudder.
Qin Jue smiled and said, “Let me see your memories.”
Without waiting for Guan Ce to react, Qin Jue’s palm suddenly emitted a dazzling golden light that enveloped him.
“How dare you!”
Guan Ce was furious. He raised his hand and waved it in an attempt to erase the golden light.
However, he quickly discovered that the golden light was tangible and had no substance. It was neither spirit energy nor a domain. It could not be erased.
“How could this be…”
Just as Guan Ce was shocked, he suddenly felt like something had entered his mind.
Guan Ce screamed fiercely as if he had gone crazy. He no longer had the gentle and refined appearance from before.
Unfortunately, no matter how Guan Ce struggled, it was useless. He couldn’t even move. On the other hand, Qin Jue’s expression was indifferent, and he had no intention of stopping.
It was only at this moment that Guan Ce realized that Qin Jue’s strength far surpassed his understanding!
Guan Ce wondered where this youth… no, where this monster had come from.
Sensing the commotion here, Lu Xing, who had been guarding outside, immediately rushed in. He thought that Guan Ce was attacking Qin Jue, so he didn’t hesitate to take out his weapon, wanting to cut off Qin Jue’s retreating route and prevent him from escaping.
However, when he saw the scene in front of him, he was stunned.
What was going on?
Was the Sect Master defeated?
In the next moment, Lu Xing felt his vision go black as he fell to the ground and lost consciousness.
Ever since he destroyed the Heavenly Palace last time, Qin Jue had already realized that the God King Stage wasn’t as powerful as he imagined. As long as he was willing, he could instantly kill them at any time.
“How is this possible…”
Guan Ce’s eyes almost split open. He could not believe his eyes.
Before he could finish his sentence, the golden light dissipated, and the hall returned to calm, as if nothing had happened.
Although it had only been a few seconds, Guan Ce was already covered in sweat and almost collapsed.
“It’s over, it’s over…”
Guan Ce’s face was ashen as he muttered to himself, as if he had lost his soul. He kept repeating the same sentence.
On the other side, Qin Jue’s eyes were closed. He was in a strange state, and it was unknown what he was thinking.
Logically speaking, Guan Ce should have attempted to sneak attack Qin Jue at this time. However, he didn’t do so. Instead, he took a deep breath, stood up, and went to Lu Xing. He took out a huge hammer and smashed it heavily on Lu Xing’s head!
As golden blood sprayed out, Lu Xing’s head shattered like a watermelon, and even his soul was shattered. He was deader than dead!
After doing this, Guan Ce smiled relaxedly.
“Looks like you haven’t completely lost your conscience.” Qin Jue opened his eyes and said faintly.
Hearing this, Guan Ce was surprisingly calm. “Those guys will descend soon, and the Heaven Realm will be destroyed.”
After a pause, Guan Ce looked at Qin Jue. “And all of this was caused by you.”
Hearing this, Qin Jue was not angry. Instead, he said with interest, “I’m very curious. As a dignified holy son of an orthodox sect, how did you end up becoming a puppet, killing all your fellow disciples, and becoming the sect master of the Immortal Divine Sect?”
Guan Ce opened his mouth but was speechless. There were tears flickering in the corner of his eyes.
Through the memories he had just read, Qin Jue had already understood all of Guan Ce’s experiences and finally understood why he wanted to contact the patriarch of the Sword God Valley.
Just as mentioned before, Guan Ce was once the holy son of a certain orthodox faction, and that orthodox faction was called “Sword King Pavilion”, which was also a branch of the Sword God Valley.
To a certain extent, Guan Ce could be considered half a disciple of the Sword God Valley.
Because of his outstanding talent since he was young, he had always bested his peers. Coupled with his diligent cultivation, Guan Ce quickly stood out and became the youngest holy son in the history of the Sword King Pavilion. He was even favored by the patriarch of the Sword God Valley and was taught the core sword techniques of the Sword God Valley.
According to this plot, Guan Ce should have advanced vigorously and eventually become the new Valley Master of the Sword God Valley.
Unfortunately, things did not go according to plan. On a training trip, Guan Ce had accidentally entered the “Devil’s Den” and had cultivated the evil cultivation technique “Spirit Devouring” from the outside world. Although his strength had increased greatly, he had also been corroded by the will of the outside world and had fallen into the demonic path, killing all the members of the Sword God Pavilion.
Next, Guan Ce was pursued by the Sword God Valley and could only flee. He was forced to join the Immortal Divine Sect and seek protection.
Then, under the corrosion of that will, Guan Ce fell deeper and deeper until he could no longer control himself and became a fiend that killed without batting an eye.
Fortunately, as his strength continued to increase, the influence of the will from the outside world on Guan Ce gradually weakened. Guan Ce also regained control of his body and slowly regained his consciousness.
Even so, the will still continued to influence Guan Ce. After losing control of Guan Ce, the will started to influence the higher-ups of the Immortal Divine Sect.
Perhaps even Lu Xing and the others did not realize that the seeds of the will of the outside world had long been planted in their bodies. Because of this will, they were often ordered to do inconceivable things.
For example… setting up array formations.
That’s right, they wanted to directly open the dimensional gate through the array formation and descend to the Heavenly Realm!
As for why Guan Ce sent Wu Shi to assassinate the strongest experts in the four regions, it was only to prevent any accidents from happening. After all, there were many core array formations set up in these four regions.
This was also the reason why Guan Ce could not leave the Immortal Divine Sect. Once he left, he would immediately attract the attention of that will, causing it to descend in advance.
Qin Jue’s appearance made Guan Ce see hope, so he wanted Qin Jue to inform the patriarch of the Sword God Valley and destroy several important array formations to stop the will from descending.
In the end, he didn’t expect Qin Jue to forcefully read his memories, causing Guan Ce to lose his mind and alert that will. It was basically impossible for him to destroy the array formations now.
Soon, the original body of the will would lead an army to the Heaven Realm. At that time, the Heaven Realm would definitely be destroyed!
As a cultivator of the “Spirit Devouring”, Guan Ce knew very well how terrifying this cultivation technique was. When cultivated to a high level, it could easily absorb the spirit qi of a continent.
If the other party’s will was so powerful, who knew how terrifying the original body was?
Guan Ce didn’t dare to imagine it.
“If you only want to tease me about this, then please do as you please.”
After a moment of silence, Guan Ce sighed.
Qin Jue didn’t care about this. In fact, what he cared about the most was whether he could return home. Now that the dimensional gate could be opened, did it mean that he could find the God Realm?
After all, at the moment, this method was much more reliable than the Spatial Turbulence Realm.
“Report! Sect Master, bad news!”
Right at this moment, an expert of the Immortal Divine Sect suddenly ran in and shouted with an extremely panicked expression.
“What is it?”
Guan Ce frowned slightly.
“The… the three top factions are attacking!”
Guan Ce was shocked for a moment before laughing instead of being angry. “Alright, alright, alright.. In that case, let’s welcome death together.”
