In less than half an hour, the birds had made a huge lap around Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Everywhere they went, bird poop fell, and an awful stench filled the air.
“Who?! Who did this? I want to kill him!”
“That frog and these birds must be the doing of the same person. Since we can’t catch that frog, let’s roast these birds!”
“You’re right. That person better hope we don’t find out who he is!”
Although these birds flew high in the sky, Xuanyi Mountain Sect was still a Martial Dao sect. Even ordinary outer sect disciples were at the early-stage Yellow Stage and were more than capable of dealing with birds.
Soon, all the birds were caught. Compared to that frog, this group of birds were only dung-making machines, completely unable to escape the pursuit of cultivators.
Originally, they planned to roast all these birds, but because they would be shot in the face with poop before they even got close, they had no choice but to find a cage to lock them up.
“Hmph! Exactly who was it that caused us to be in such a miserable state?”
“This is too despicable. Let’s inform the sect master.”
“That’s right. The sect master’s might is unparalleled in this world. With his help, we’ll definitely be able to find this guy who’s up to no good.”
Therefore, after a discussion, the elders decided to ask the sect master to take action.
At this moment, Bai Ye still didn’t know what was happening outside. Sitting cross-legged in front of the pill furnace, Bai Ye was busy controlling the flames and refining his pills.
As for the animals that had eaten his pills, after confirming that they were not dead, Bai Ye had let them go. He had never expected that a frog and a couple of birds could cause such a huge commotion.
“Sect Master, we have something to report.”
At this moment, a few elders arrived outside the main hall and bowed.
“Yeah, come on in.”
Bai Ye nodded casually, looking exceptionally focused. At this moment, his hands were still controlling the flames.
After obtaining permission to enter, the elders looked at each other and immediately stepped forward. “Sect Master, a talking demonic frog appeared out of nowhere yesterday and has been spreading rumors everywhere. It made us suffer indescribably.”
“That’s right, that’s right. Also, a group of birds flew over this morning. They’re pooping everywhere. The entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect is about to become a mountain of bird poop.”
“We suspect that someone in the sect is deliberately playing tricks on us. We hope Sect Master can find him.”
“Sect Master, please help us!”
After hearing the elders’ report, Bai Ye was stunned. A demonic frog that can speak? Birds that are pooping everywhere? Could it be those animals that I released?
Thinking of this, Bai Ye’s fingers trembled as he suddenly lost control of his spirit energy.
Sensing the temperature inside the pill furnace was rising rapidly, Bai Ye hurriedly shouted, “Run!”
As soon as he finished speaking, Bai Ye’s figure flashed and vanished on the spot.
Accompanied by an intense tremor, thick smoke spread out from the hall, forming a sinister-looking skull. Bai Ye stood outside the hall and heaved a sigh of relief. “Hu, fortunately, I was fast enough to escape.”
From the looks of it, he had already expected for the explosion to happen.
After a while, a few ragged and black figures walked out, giving Bai Ye a fright. “Who are you guys?”
“Sect Master, it’s me, Shi Yao.”
One of them spoke, revealing his white teeth.
“Oh, so it’s Elder Shi.”
Bai Ye’s lips twitched. He had almost forgotten about these people.
Fortunately, they were all Earth Stage cultivators. Although they didn’t manage to escape, they weren’t injured.
“Ahem, I know what you guys just said. You guys can go back first. I’ll investigate.”
In order to resolve the awkwardness, Bai Ye could only change the topic.
As for the frog and the bird, Bai Ye naturally wouldn’t tell them the truth.
“Thank you, Sect Master.”
Even though they were slightly depressed, since Bai Ye had already made a promise, they could not say anything else and could only leave.
“Sigh, I absolutely can’t let them know that I, the sect master, was responsible for that frog and the birds. Otherwise, wouldn’t I be beaten to death?”
After saying this, Bai Ye was about to sweep the pill furnace fragments in the main hall when a strange voice suddenly sounded from the side. “Sigh, I absolutely can’t let them know that I, the sect master, was responsible for that frog and the birds. Otherwise, wouldn’t I be beaten to death?”
Bai Ye looked in the direction of the voice and indeed saw the frog he had let loose yesterday.
Before Bai Ye could react, the frog had already burrowed into the grass and disappeared. One could faintly hear it repeating Bai Ye’s words.
“Ahhh! Stop right there!”
Bai Ye quickly recovered from his surprise and joined the chase.
At this moment, the calmest place in the sect should be the cliff. In order to prevent the birds from barging in again, Qin Jue had specially set up an airtight barrier. Once the birds approached, they would be immediately forced to the ground.
Perhaps it was because the girl had just won the sect competition yesterday, she didn’t come today. Qin Jue sat on the blue stone and drank spirit wine while humming a song. Coupled with his immortal-like temperament, he was unbelievably handsome.
“Hmm? What’s that?”
Suddenly, Qin Jue looked up and saw a black dot approaching from afar.
It looked like… a person?
The black figure was extremely fast and arrived above Qin Jue’s head in the blink of an eye. Just as he was about to fly over the Xuanyi Mountain Sect…
Without any warning, the black figure paused for a moment and suddenly fell from the sky, landing beside the blue stone.
Qin Jue :”…”
“Ouch. That hurt. What happened?”
Qin Jue saw a young man in black clothes and black hair get up from the ground. He bared his teeth and said, “Strange. Why did I suddenly fall?”
Qin Jue was silent. There was an airtight barrier here, so of course you would fall.
At the same time, the black-clothed youth also saw Qin Jue and awkwardly said, “Sorry, I didn’t mean to offend you. I’ll leave now.”
With that, the black-robed youth exhaled and jumped five to six meters high. However, he quickly fell back down, making the atmosphere even more awkward.
“That shouldn’t have happened.”
The black-robed young man could not figure out why no matter how hard he racked his brains. He changed more than ten positions to jump up and down, but all of them were useless. Instead, he just felt more and more awkward.
Just as Qin Jue was about to remove the airtight barrier and let this fellow who had flown over from god knows where quickly leave, the black-clothed youth suddenly slapped his head and revealed an expression of sudden realization. “I understand!”
As he spoke, the black-robed young man quickly arrived at the edge of the cliff and said firmly, “It must be because of the special environment and the insufficient height. If I jump down from here, it will definitely be possible.”
Before he could finish speaking, the black-robed youth had already leaped down. Unfortunately, he still did not fly.
A few seconds later, a deafening sound came from below.
Qin Jue :”…”
