In an instant, the girl felt as if she had fallen into an ice cave. She revealed a frightened expression, but her spirit energy immediately locked onto Qin Jue.
The girl had never mentioned her cultivation technique to outsiders, so when Qin Jue asked if she was cultivating the Clear Void Scripture, the first thing the girl thought of was to kill and silence him.
Otherwise, once her cultivation technique was exposed, she would attract a lot of danger.
“Hehe, before you make a move, aren’t you going to figure out your opponent’s strength first?”
Qin Jue put his hands behind his back and smiled.
Only at this moment did the young girl seriously size up the youth in front of her.
At this moment, the clothes Qin Jue wore were as white as snow, and he had the aura of a dragon or a phoenix. He was like an immortal that had come alive from a painting. Whether it was his appearance or his temperament, they were both extremely extraordinary. One look and one could tell that he was not an ordinary person. Especially at this moment, Qin Jue deliberately exuded a valiant aura. If it were any other girl, they likely would have long been unable to resist falling in love with him.
On the other hand, such a young man was living on a cliff, and there was even a separate courtyard. It was obvious that his status was not low.
The young girl knew very well that she was absolutely not a match for this youth in front of her. However, she had never thought that there would actually be someone living here. Moreover, with a single glance, he could tell that she was not cultivating the Clear Void Scripture.
“Who exactly are you?” the young girl questioned in a low voice.
“You can call me Qin Jue.” Qin Jue smiled, not intending to tell the girl his true identity.
“Qin Jue…” The girl frowned slightly, as if trying to find this name from her memory.
“You still haven’t told me your name.” Qin Jue was nonchalant.
The girl hesitated for a moment before replying, “Luo Weiwei.”
It was clearly impossible for her to escape at the moment, so she could only wait for an opportunity.
“Luo Weiwei, right?” Qin Jue said. “You will answer whatever I ask next. If you perform well, perhaps I can let you go. How about it?”
Looking at the unfathomable youth in front of her, Luo Weiwei did not know what to do.
“What cultivation technique are you using?” Qin Jue asked casually.
Luo Weiwei was silent.
Seemingly seeing through the girl’s inner thoughts, Qin Jue said seriously, “Don’t worry. No matter what cultivation technique you are practicing, I will not snatch it from you, nor will I make it known to others.”
“Really?” The girl was slightly suspicious.
Upon hearing this, the girl gritted her teeth and said, “Pure Yang True Technique. I cultivate the Pure Yang True Technique.”
Qin Jue didn’t expect the girl to believe his words so easily. Sure enough, girls were easy to deceive, no matter what world it was.
Pure Yang True Technique?
Wasn’t that the rumored cultivation technique of a Pure Yang Saint?
Could this girl have obtained the Pure Yang Saint’s inheritance?
The Pure Yang Saint was a Great Sage Stage expert who lived several hundred years ago in the Southern Land. Qin Jue had once read about him in an ancient book. It was said that even the four major sects at that time were suppressed by him until they could not lift their heads. But later, for some reason, he suddenly disappeared, and no one saw him again.
It was no wonder the girl was so nervous. If outsiders knew that she cultivated the “Pure Yang True Technique”, not to mention small factions like the Xuanyi Mountain Sect and the Stargate Sect, even the four major sects would not be able to resist taking action.
It had to be said that the girl was really too young and naive. She actually told him this secret so easily. If Qin Jue had other thoughts, then the girl would undoubtedly die.
Fortunately, he had no interest in the Pure Yang True Technique. After all, if he wanted to, he could obtain a higher-level cultivation method.
Qin Jue pondered for a moment before asking, “Where did you get the Pure Yang True Technique? Why did you join my Xuanyi Mountain Sect?”
Compared to the Pure Yang True Technique, Qin Jue was more concerned about why the girl had joined the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
Seeing that Qin Jue’s expression didn’t change, the girl secretly heaved a sigh of relief. In fact, she had only heard of the Pure Yang Saint’s name. As for how strong this Pure Yang Saint was, the girl didn’t know.
Otherwise, she would definitely not have dared to reveal the technique’s name.
“My—my mother gave it to me before she died,” the girl said hesitantly. “The Xuanyi Mountain Sect is the only martial sect in this area. I wanted to become stronger, so I joined it.”
After listening to the girl’s circumstances, Qin Jue fell into deep thought. Although the girl had deliberately omitted many things, he was certain that she wasn’t a spy from the Stargate Sect. Well, that was enough for him.
Qin Jue was not worried that the girl was lying because if she lied, he could instantly tell.
As for how the girl’s mother had the “Pure Yang True Technique” and how it was related to the Pure Yang Saint, Qin Jue wasn’t interested in knowing. Moreover, the girl seemed to have the potential to be a “main character”.
“Alright, I’m satisfied with your answer. You can leave now.” Qin Jue took a sip of wine and waved his hand.
“Huh?” The girl was dumbstruck and could not react for a moment.
It ended just like that?
Qin Jue pondered for a moment and said, “By the way, don’t tell anyone about you cultivating the Pure Yang True Technique. Also, if you are willing, you can continue cultivating here.”
“Thank—thank you… Senior Brother Qin?”
With that said, the girl ran away without hesitation, as if she was afraid that Qin Jue would catch up and eat her.
Regarding this, Qin Jue was rather speechless. She had actually called him “Senior Brother”. Wouldn’t that make her the Martial Grandaunt of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect?
The next day, Qin Jue thought that the girl would be traumatized by yesterday’s incident and wouldn’t dare to come again.
But unexpectedly, when Qin Jue came out of the courtyard with a wine pot, the young girl was still sitting cross-legged on the blue stone, cultivating. For a moment, Qin Jue didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry. He didn’t know whether to say that this young girl was innocent or careless.
Qin Jue didn’t disturb her. Instead, he found a place to sit down and poured some wine for the “weed”.
Not long after, the girl opened her eyes and saw Qin Jue squatting by the weed. She asked curiously, “What are you doing?”
Qin Jue turned around and said with a faint smile, “What? You’re no longer afraid of me?”
The girl blushed and summoned up her courage. “I don’t think you’re a bad person.”
Qin Jue: “???”
What did she base that on?
But in reality, he really wasn’t a bad person.
Although Qin Jue had already lived in this world for 10 years, his personality hadn’t changed in all this time. Otherwise, why would he drink wine and sing every day and stay at Xuanyi Mountain Sect, unwilling to go anywhere?
Anyone else would have ruled the world long ago.
“Actually, I still have a question I didn’t ask yesterday. Can you answer it?” Qin Jue said mysteriously.
“What question?” The girl was puzzled.
“Can you still cultivate this cultivation technique at night?”
Luo Weiwei: “…”
“Sure, but the cultivation speed will be greatly reduced. Usually, it’s only in the morning when the pure Yang energy is the densest. At this time, my cultivation can be twice as fast with half the effort.”
“So that’s how it is.” Qin Jue was suddenly enlightened. “In other words, cultivating here every morning is equivalent to lying in the Spirit Marrow Pool. No wonder you think I’m not a bad person.”
The girl opened her mouth, speechless.
