Chapter 65: Someone’s Looking for You
Back at Xuanyi Mountain…
Bai Ye sat cross-legged in the main hall with a slightly anxious expression. His junior brother had already been gone for 10 minutes and he was wondering whether something bad had happened.
Although Bai Ye knew that Qin Jue was very strong, he didn’t know the exact extent of Qin Jue’s strength. Moreover, there were Legendary Stage experts participating in this war. What if junior brother wasn’t as strong?
Junior Brother, you must be fine.
As Bai Ye was thinking, there was a fluctuation in the space in front of him. Soon after, Qin Jue silently appeared in the main hall, still dressed in white and incomparably handsome. Qin Jue didn’t look like he had fought at all. If one didn’t know better, they would think that he had just gone out for a walk.
“Alright, it’s been settled.”
Qin Jue drank a mouthful of wine and said drunkenly.
“What? It’s been settled?”
Bai Ye was somewhat dumbfounded. He was still worried about Qin Jue’s safety, but in the end, everything was settled just like that?
“Yes, there will be reports on the Spiritnet tomorrow, but there shouldn’t be any news about me.”
Qin Jue said casually.
To others, the incident would have been seen as a calamity that would sweep through the Southern Land, but to Qin Jue, he felt no different than when he had killed the Stargate Sect Elder. After all, they were both matters that could be solved with a single punch.
This incident also allowed Qin Jue to understand the true power of the gold-plated Gatling gun. He had only lit up two-tenths of the runes, yet it was already so powerful. He hadn’t even activated the five elemental attributes on it. If he went all out, it would probably reach the World Destruction Stage.
“Then… are you injured?”
Bai Ye asked.
Qin Jue casually shook his head. “If there’s nothing else, I’ll go back first.”
With that, Qin Jue turned and left.
It was hard to imagine that such a thin youth had just saved the Southern Land and had only taken less than ten minutes.
Qin Jue turned around.
Bai Ye said solemnly.
“Tsk, if you really want to thank me, get me some good wine.”
“Can you drink less?”
“Not unless you promise to never refine pills again.”
Bai Ye thought for a moment and said, “Then forget it.”
Just as Qin Jue had said, the next day, almost all the major headlines on the Spiritnet were reporting the news of the Four Major Sects defeating the Purple Spirit Race and the fiend beasts. Even the live streams were no exception. Because of this, the fame and reputation of the Four Major Sects had reached an unprecedented level. It could be said that they were like the sun in the midday sky.
Sure enough, Qin Jue didn’t appear in any of the news. All the articles only mentioned that the Four Major Sects had fought bitterly for several days and won with difficulty, but there was no description of how they won or who helped them win.
Without needing to think, Qin Jue knew that the Four Major Sects must have deliberately blocked the news. Qin Jue was quite satisfied with this. He didn’t want to be treated as some savior. Since that meant that once the Southern Land encountered a crisis in the future, the first person people would think of was him. This was not something Qin Jue wanted to see happen.
Of course, even though the Four Major Sects had already sealed it off with all their might, there was still quite a bit of unwanted news circulating. For example, news about the mysterious expert sweeping through the fiend beasts and the Purple Spirit Race’s army had been leaked in private. After all, there were more than a million cultivators participating in this war. With so many people and so much gossip, how could it be completely sealed off?
However, Qin Jue didn’t care. Apart from those Legendary Stage experts, no one knew what he looked like. At most, they would just talk about it a few times. It didn’t matter whether the public believed them.
As for the rest of the cleanup work, Qin Jue wasn’t interested in it at all. It was the responsibility of the Four Major Sects.
“Hai, I’m really unlucky this year. I’ve encountered so much trouble in succession.”
Turning off the spirit tablet, Qin Jue stretched lazily and sighed.
First, he had participated in the Demon-Slaying Gathering. Then, he had gotten involved in the training, the Stargate Sect, and the Wei Clan. He had spent almost all of his time participating in one event after another. He had originally thought that the Four Major Sects would be able to handle this matter, but he had never expected that he would have to once again take action in the end.
“Good morning, Uncle-Grandmaster.”
At that moment, Luo Weiwei waved her hand and walked over from afar.
Because she was specially allowed to enter the Spirit Marrow Lake after breaking through to the Yellow Stage, the girl had been cultivating diligently during this period of time. She wanted to break through to the Profound Stage as soon as possible.
It had to be said that the girl’s cultivation talent was stunning. Not only did her improvements not slow down as her level increased, but it even sped up.
In the hundreds of years of Xuanyi Mountain Sect’s history, excluding Qin Jue, the girl was very likely to become the second disciple to step into the Profound Stage in less than half a year.
Furthermore, as the girl cultivated the Pure Yang True Technique, the purity of her spirit energy far surpassed that of ordinary cultivation techniques. It faintly emitted a fiery aura that would greatly increase her strength in battle. If one were to rashly fight her, he would most likely suffer a loss, just like how Wang Chen and Xu Lang.
Not long after, the young girl sat cross-legged on the blue stone and entered a cultivation state. Qin Jue took out a pot of wine and poured it for Yun Xi. Recently, Yun Xi had been able to move about outside for more and more time. Presumably, it wouldn’t be long before Yun Xi could break through and advance to a level two spirit herb.
Thinking of this, Qin Jue couldn’t help but look forward to Yun Xi’s transformation. Perhaps Yun Xi would turn out to be a loli?
With such a wicked interest in mind, Qin Jue got up and returned to the courtyard. He casually made some food and then lay on the cliff to look at the scenery as usual.
Two days passed like this. During this time, there were also reports that the patriarch of the Archaic Mysteries Sect, Tian Jizi, had personally headed to the border between the Southern Land and the Western Land to eliminate all the remaining survivors of the Purple Spirit Race. This undoubtedly made the Southern Land cultivators heave a sigh of relief. After all, if the Purple Spirit Race returned three hundred years later, wouldn’t that mean that they would have to fight again?
On this day, the blue sky was clear and the wind was light. The girl was sitting on the blue stone cultivating, and Qin Jue was lying on the side drinking wine. The scene was very peaceful.
Just as Qin Jue was about to fall asleep in a daze, he suddenly heard someone calling him. He opened his eyes. It was Zhang Jichen.
However, Zhang Jichen’s current appearance really made people not know whether to laugh or to cry. The two lumps of meat on his chest pushed his clothes up high, like two basketballs. Coupled with his handsome face, it was an especially strange sight.
Suppressing his laughter, Qin Jue asked, “What’s the matter?”
“Uncle-Master, there’s someone outside looking for you.”
Zhang Jichen answered.
Ever since he had eaten Bai Ye’s pill, Zhang Jichen had almost collapsed. He had used all sorts of methods to eliminate those two bumps on his body, but he had failed in the end and had already given up.
Since there was no way to change it, he might as well bear with it silently.
“Looking for me?”
Qin Jue was stunned and thought that he had misheard.
Zhang Jichen said seriously.
“What’s his name?”
Qin Jue frowned. He didn’t remember having any friends outside the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
“Uh… I forgot to ask.”
Zhang Jichen felt awkward. “Should I go and ask him now?”
“Forget it, call him over.”
Qin Jue was speechless.
Zhang Jichen obeyed and quickly brought a young man over.
Seeing the figure in front of him, Qin Jue was stunned.
