Because of the Wei Clan’s destruction and the disbandment of the Stargate Sect, Qin Jue’s life quickly returned to normal.
As a result, one could often see a certain scene from the cliff behind the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. A youth’s white clothes would flutter in the wind as he lay on the ground in a relaxed and comfortable manner. Beside him would be a weed that emitted a faint spirit qi. And not far away on the blue stone would be a beautiful young girl, sitting cross-legged, immersed in cultivation.
Although this combination was a little strange, it did not seem out of place at all. Instead, it would make people feel strangely warm.
In the blink of an eye, half a month passed, with Qin Jue living the same life every day. If it were anyone else, it would be pretty soon before they were unable to take it any longer, but Qin Jue was already used to it. Anyways, as long as there was wine to drink, he would be fine.
On this day, Qin Jue was sleeping on the lawn when the sky suddenly darkened as if it was going to rain.
He looked up at the girl who was still cultivating and casually punched out.
There was no sound, just like with the autumn wind sweeping away the fallen leaves. The dark clouds in the sky had dissipated at a speed visible to the naked eye, and the originally gloomy sky quickly became bright and sunny, even a little hot.
After doing this, Qin Jue retracted his fist as if nothing had happened.
At that moment, Luo Weiwei, who was cultivating, was very puzzled. She had clearly sensed that the surrounding pure Yang energy had suddenly decreased greatly.
Why did it seem like it had inexplicably recovered?
After pondering for a moment, the girl could not figure it out. In the end, she chose to let the thought go and continued to cultivate seriously.
“Uncle-Master… Uncle-Master… Something’s wrong!” Just as Qin Jue was about to go to sleep, Zhang Jichen had suddenly rushed over with a nervous face.
“What is it?” Qin Jue frowned and slowly stood up.
“Master… Master has been unconscious for half a day and has yet to wake up,” Zhang Jichen said worriedly.
“What happened?!” Qin Jue questioned.
With Bai Ye’s peak Heaven Stage cultivation, how could he have fainted for no reason?
“Master, he…” Zhang Jichen hesitated, not knowing how to explain.
With a sigh, Zhang Jichen could only tell the truth. “Master… ate the medicinal pill that he refined himself and had fallen unconscious until now.”
Qin Jue: “???”
Ever since the last time the furnace exploded, Bai Ye seemed to have been refining pills at will and would cause a furnace to explode every once in a while.
Qin Jue roughly estimated that Bai Ye’s furnace had exploded at least thirty times in the past half month, twice a day on average.
Later on, even the new disciples had gotten used to it and lost their initial excitement.
But he had gotten even bolder now, even having the guts to eat the medicinal pill that he refined!
“Take me to him.” Qin Jue was dumbfounded.
“Yes.” Zhang Jichen breathed a sigh of relief and hurriedly led Qin Jue to the place where Bai Ye’s unconscious body was lying.
At this moment, Bai Ye was lying on the floor of the main hall, his face expressionless, as if he had fallen asleep. However, he was not breathing.
If he was an ordinary person, they could already start arranging his funeral. However, Bai Ye was not an ordinary person. As long as his aura was still present, it meant that he was still alive.
Seeing Qin Jue coming over, Wu Ying, who was beside Bai Ye and watching over him, hurriedly stood up and said, “Uncle-Master!”
“Umm-hmm.” Qin Jue nodded as a golden light flashed in his eyes.
“I see.” Qin Jue looked enlightened.
Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying looked at each other in confusion.
“That pill has blocked his meridians.” Qin Jue helped Bai Ye up and then slapped his shoulder.
Bai Ye, who had been unconscious, suddenly opened his eyes wide and spat out a sticky black liquid, instantly waking up.
As soon as the black liquid touched the ground, it emitted an ear-piercing corrosive sound and burned a hole in the glazed floor. Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying both shivered. Luckily, it wasn’t them who had eaten this medicinal pill; otherwise, they probably would have died without even knowing the exact cause of their death.
“Cough, cough, cough!”
Bai Ye coughed a few times, as if a heavy burden had been lifted from his shoulders. “Huu, that’s nice. I feel so much better now.”
Qin Jue: “…”
After calming himself down, Bai Ye smiled in embarrassment. “Junior Brother, you saved my life again.”
“What kind of pill did you take?” Qin Jue rolled his eyes.
“Supreme Stage Pill, I wanted to see if I could break through to the Supreme Stage realm. Looks like I failed,” Bai Ye said awkwardly.
Qin Jue: “???”
Supreme Stage Pill? Wasn’t that a grade five pill?
Even the top-notch pill-refiners in the Southern Land would find it difficult to refine it, right? You actually dared to refine such a pill and even went as far as to try it yourself?
For a moment, Qin Jue was at a loss of words.
Hai, my senior brother is too unreliable!
“Mm? What sound is tha—?” Zhang Jichen asked doubtfully.
Before he could finish his sentence, another “pfft” was heard. It was several times louder than the previous one.
The three of them simultaneously looked at Bai Ye.
“It seems to be coming from behind Master.” Wu Ying hesitated.
Before they could figure out what was going on, a thick stench filled the air. It was even worse than a manure pool.
“Hmm…? What’s that smell? It stinks.” Zhang Jichen hurriedly covered his nose.
As if realizing something, Qin Jue immediately set up a spirit energy barrier to isolate himself.
“Master, did you poop in your pants?” Wu Ying could not help but ask.
As someone who had suffered from diarrhea before, Wu Ying knew very well how terrifying the medicinal pills refined by Bai Ye were.
Seeing that there was no way to hide it, Bai Ye could only brace himself and say, “My meridians had been blocked for too long. Coupled with the side effects of that pill, I might have accidentally discharged some spirit qi.”
A cultivator’s expelled gas wasn’t a fart! It was spirit qi! Spirit qi!
However, this was just the beginning. Soon after, another long squeak was heard. There was even an extra sound at the end. If one didn’t know better, one would think someone was playing an instrument.
“I can’t take it anymore!” Zhang Jichen shouted and immediately ran outside.
Seeing this, Wu Ying quickly followed behind. If they continued to stay here, they might even start foaming at the mouth.
At this moment, a figure suddenly streaked past them and flew out first.
Before the two of them could react, an indescribable stench suddenly surrounded them. Fortunately, the two of them circulated their spirit energy to resist it in time and barely escaped.
The two of them focused their gazes and realized that the figure flying past them was actually Bai Ye!
However, Bai Ye did not rush out on purpose. Instead, he was forcefully pushed out by his so-called “spirit qi”!
“Make it stop…” Bai Ye’s face flushed red. He had never imagined that the side effects of the pill would be so exaggerated. And this was even after his meridians were blocked and he had only absorbed a small portion.
What if he had absorbed all of it?
At this moment, he finally understood how his two disciples usually felt.
“Not good!” Right at this moment, Bai Ye suddenly felt an indescribable force gathering down below!
The entire Xuanyi Mountain trembled. Then, under Zhang Jichen and Wu Ying’s shocked gazes, Bai Ye soared into the sky!
