The next day, Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying appeared in front of everyone with bruises all over their faces. Especially noticeable were their two dark eye circles, which made them look like pandas. They looked especially comical.
Originally, Bai Ye didn’t understand what was going on, but when he was beaten up by Qin Jue, he suddenly remembered that he had casually mentioned to his two disciples that Qin Jue liked a girl yesterday. The problem was obviously with the two of them.
As a result, Bai Ye called Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying into the main hall to interrogate them. As expected, it was the two who spread this matter, and the more it spread, the more outrageous it became. In the end, people were saying that Qin Jue was planning to marry the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect.
Of course, that was not the main point.
The main point was that everyone believed that Bai Ye was the one who said it!
No wonder Qin Jue would question him for no reason.
Bai Ye wanted to cry, but no tears came out.
He had just casually said something, but who would have thought that the rumors would be exaggerated to this extent?
And all of this was because of his two disciples!
The result was self-evident, so Bai Ye had vented all his anger on Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying, resulting in this scene.
“Elder Zhang? What’s wrong?” someone asked curiously.
“It’s nothing. Something went wrong when I was studying a cultivation technique last night. My face got swollen because of it.” Zhang Jichen brought up the explanation Bai Ye had used.
“And Elder Wu?”
“I also accidentally made a mistake while studying a cultivation technique.” Wu Ying smiled awkwardly.
“The two of you were studying the same cultivation technique?”
Zhang Jichen: “…”
Wu Ying: “???”
“Ninety-nine percent of the people don’t know where the Wei Clan experts went.”
“The fiend beasts left, and the Great City-Barrier Formation was destroyed. What exactly happened?”
“In the past, the enemies of the Wei Clan had never done anything like this.”
“Shocking! The Wei Clan has been removed from the list, and only six of the Seven Great Clans remain! Could the Wei Clan, which has lost its Supreme Stage experts, still have a foothold in Brilliance City?”
“Tonight, let us enter the Wei Clan to find out more about the mysterious disappearance of the Wei Clan’s experts…”
“According to the speculation of a cultivator specialist, evidence from the scene suggests that it was very likely that the higher-ups of the Wei Clan had not disappeared but were instead killed by a mysterious high-level expert. The preliminary conclusion is that this mysterious expert is at least at the Legendary Stage realm!”
“Who is this mysterious expert? What was his motive for attacking the Wei Clan?”
“Who was the mastermind behind all this? Could it be the doings of the Four Major Sects?”
Qin Jue was speechless as he flipped through the spirit tablet, reading the news about the Wei Clan.
This “online” news was incredibly similar to that of the Earth.
But now, Qin Jue had finally learned about what had happened after he left.
It turned out that after he had killed the Wei Clan’s two Supreme Stage experts and all of their higher-ups, the fiend beasts that had contracted with them had all left Brilliance City, causing a huge commotion.
Even though some people were hopeful, they still did not dare to challenge the Wei Clan out of the blue.
It was only when an impatient enemy of the Wei Clan attacked them that everyone realized that they no longer had a single expert above the Heaven Stage!
It had to be known that the Wei Clan had ruled over Brilliance City for over a thousand years and had collected countless heavenly treasures. They also had all sorts of cultivation techniques and secret manuals. In particular, they had the extremely coveted unique cultivation technique that allowed one to contract with a fiend beast.
In the past, the Wei Clan had a deep foundation and an abundance of experts. Naturally, no one dared to have any ideas about these things then.
However, what if the Wei Clan didn’t even have a single Heaven Stage to protect themselves?
Even if one had a butt for a brain, he could still easily guess what was going to happen.
Subsequently, as expected, the Wei Clan was removed from being one of the Seven Great Clans and was besieged, and its resources were divided among various forces. Among these besieging powers, there were even quite a few subsidiary forces of the Wei Clan.
In a single night, the Wei Clan had disappeared from Brilliance City, as if it had never existed. Even its many hall branches had been uprooted.
However, the Wei Clan was, after all, one of the most powerful clans in the Southern Land, second only to the Four Major Sects. In each of its generations, there had been at least one Supreme Stage expert, especially in this generation. With two Supreme Stage experts, it could be said that they were like the sun in the midday sky.
Now that the high-level cultivators, including the two Supreme Stage experts, had suddenly gone missing and had not returned even when Wei Clan was being destroyed, naturally, people found it to be very strange.
Therefore, after an investigation by a cultivator specialist, he deduced that the higher-ups of the Wei Clan might not have gone missing but were instead killed by a mysterious Legendary Stage expert. In the Southern Land, only the Four Major Sects had Legendary Stage experts and above.
As a result, the Four Major Sects had somehow become responsible for this incident.
“Indeed, specialists are always unreliable, whether it’s here or on Earth.” Qin Jue smiled bitterly.
But strictly speaking, this matter could not be blamed on that cultivator specialist. After all, Qin Jue had deliberately erased all traces when he left. Even if the Four Major Sects investigated, there would have been no results.
Although Qin Jue wasn’t worried about his strength being exposed, he also didn’t want to be disturbed by outsiders.
Why couldn’t they just let him live in seclusion and peace in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect?
Turning off the spirit tablet, Qin Jue raised his head and took a sip of wine. Then he laid on the grass and leisurely basked in the sun. Based solely on this scene, no one would associate him with the mysterious expert who had single-handedly killed the Wei Clan’s higher-ups.
At this moment, if one were to ask who was the most dumbfounded by all this, it would definitely be the Stargate Sect’s Vice Sect Master, Mu Chen.
Originally, after witnessing the strength of Wei Longtao and the others, he thought that the Xuanyi Mountain Sect would definitely perish and that he would undoubtedly become the new owner of this area.
In the end, the news that came a few days later was that the Wei Clan had been destroyed, and Xuanyi Mountain Sect was safe and sound.
Although he did not know what had happened, his instincts told him to run! The further the better!
Therefore, he disbanded the Stargate Sect overnight and escaped from this area with his belongings.
He planned to hide his identity and never return!
Of course, Qin Jue didn’t know about this matter yet.
In any case, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had become the absolute ruler of this region, at least for the time being.
At that moment, the pure Yang energy in the world suddenly began to gather on a large scale, forming visible beams of light.
Qin Jue’s expression changed slightly. He looked up at the girl sitting cross-legged on the blue stone, deep in thought.
At that moment, the girl was frowning as a powerful suction force had erupted from her body. She was crazily absorbing the surrounding pure Yang energy, and her aura was rising continuously, as though she was attempting a breakthrough.
At a certain moment, the pure Yang energy finally approached a critical point. The air fell into a momentary silence. Then, the faint sound of a barrier shattering could be heard. The girl’s aura also increased dramatically, instantly reaching the peak Yellow Stage.
After breaking through, the girl was not in a hurry to end her cultivation; she wanted to test the fruits of her labor. Instead, she continued to circulate her cultivation technique to stabilize her realm.
At times like these, she couldn’t afford to be anxious. Fortunately, she was able to remain calm.
Ten minutes later, the girl let out a breath of turbid air and opened her eyes. There seemed to be a flash of divine light in her bright eyes, which were exceptionally gorgeous.
“Congratulations.” Qin Jue laughed.
The girl blushed. “I was just lucky.”
It must be said that the young girl’s cultivation talent was extremely abnormal. It had not even been half a month since the last Spiritual Energy Empowerment, yet she had already broken through again. Moreover, there were no signs of instability. She was almost as strong as those core disciples of the large sects.
If she were to be properly nurtured, the girl’s future achievements should not be anything less than the Supreme Stage.
Thinking like this, Qin Jue suddenly became curious.
What would Bai Ye do if he knew?
After all, he had only told Bai Ye about Luo Weiwei’s cultivation technique. He had not mentioned her cultivation talent.
