Unlike ordinary spirit herbs, Yun Xi had already gained sentience and cultivated the human cultivation technique, the Clear Void Scripture, so Qin Jue wasn’t surprised that it advanced quickly. He just didn’t expect it to be so fast.
It had to be known that Luo Weiwei had also cultivated for several months and was fortunate enough to experience spirit energy empowerment midway before she could break through to the Profound Stage at this time. On the other hand, besides the few drops of spirit wine Qin Jue poured every day, Yun Xi almost had no other help.
In other words, Yun Xi’s cultivation talent was even more terrifying than Luo Weiwei’s. How could all this be done by a weed?
Just as Qin Jue was deep in thought, a green light suddenly lit up on Yun Xi’s body. It was the symbol of the Clear Void Scripture. Then Yun Xi’s aura began to rise continuously, and the golden lines on the grass grew brighter, making it look exceptionally gorgeous.
At a certain moment, Yun Xi trembled slightly, as if something had shattered. The golden markings on the blade of grass also turned dark gold, and its aura rose explosively. All sorts of signs indicated that Yun Xi had already successfully advanced to a level two spirit herb.
“That’s all it took?”
Qin Jue was stunned.
Under normal circumstances, shouldn’t one go through a day and a night of cultivation, or even fail a few times before finally making a breakthrough? Also, why did it look no different from usual cultivation?
Although Qin Jue’s cultivation was invincible, he had no concept of breaking through. After all, he could become stronger just by eating or sleeping, so his understanding of this aspect was still the same as the time when Bai Ye broke through.
After breaking through, Yun Xi stretched out the blade of grass and then pointed at Qin Jue. The meaning was obvious, as if to say: I want more.
“No, you just broke through. You should stabilize your realm first.”
Qin Jue immediately shook his head in refusal.
Hearing this, Yun Xi immediately wilted in disappointment, but it didn’t continue to pester Qin Jue. Instead, it obediently entered a cultivation state to stabilize its realm.
In the next few days, Qin Jue either lay on the blue stone to sleep or drank wine and sang. It was extremely relaxing.
The spirit wine he got from the Archaic Mysteries Sect was enough to last for at least half a year. Therefore, he no longer needed to worry about the spirit wine for the time being.
In addition, Qin Jue had already thought it through. If even the spirit wine of the Archaic Mysteries Sect was of such high quality, what about the wine of the forces that stood at the top of the Spirit Central World?
Therefore, Qin Jue decided that after drinking all this spirit wine, he would go to the Sacred Land of the Central Continent to take a look. He might even be able to obtain a thousand-year-old spirit wine. At most, he would just find another spirit stone to exchange for it. In any case, the Spirit Central World was so big. As long as Qin Jue was willing, he could find an even bigger spirit stone or other good things to exchange for wine with at any time.
On this day, the girl walked towards the morning light. Sure enough, she had already broken through to the Profound Stage. She seemed to have been reborn, and even her appearance had become even more beautiful.
It was no exaggeration to say that at this moment, regardless of whether it was the outer or inner sect, no disciple was her match. Even some mentors of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect might not be able to beat her.
At this rate, the young girl would probably be a Heaven Stage cultivator after three years, a Legendary Stage cultivator after five, and a Great Sage Stage cultivator after ten. At that point, she would be the most invincible and indestructible existence in the world.
“Uncle-Grandmaster, it’s been so lively at the foot of the mountain recently. Many cultivators have come from other places.”
The girl said casually.
Ordinary Martial Dao factions would typically rely on the city nearby, and the Xuanyi Mountain Sect was no exception. Although the city was not large, it was rather prosperous. Some mentors and elders were tired of teaching and would often go to the Thousand Phoenix Pavilion at the foot of the mountain to relax.
However, because the Xuanyi Mountain Sect was only a small, unknown faction, the people in the city at the foot of the mountain were basically all ordinary people. There were no cultivators in such cities, except for the cities with top factions like the Six Great Clans. For example, the Brilliance City that had been occupied by the Wei Clan previously contained countless high-level cultivators.
So when he heard this, the first thing Qin Jue thought of was that his identity had been exposed.
But he quickly dismissed this idea. If his identity was exposed, it would be impossible for the Four Major Sects to remain silent. After all, Tian Jizi and the others only knew what he looked like, but they didn’t know where he lived.
If not because of his exposed identity, then what was the reason?
“Do you know where these cultivators are coming from?”
“I don’t know.”
The girl shook her head. She had only inadvertently noticed it the last time she went down the mountain, but she did not think too deeply about it.
Qin Jue was helpless.
According to his experience from reading novels, he guessed that there was either a distinguished meeting being held or there had been news about a nearby secret treasure was about to appear.
Not long ago, the Four Major Sects had just fought a huge battle with the Purple Spirit Race and the fiend beasts. They were all still recovering their vitality, so it was obviously impossible for them to hold a distinguished meeting. Moreover, even if they did, it was impossible for them to hold one here. There was only one Martial Dao faction within a thousand kilometers from the city, and it was the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Therefore, the answer was obvious: a secret treasure was about to appear nearby.
He just didn’t know what kind of secret treasure it was or where it was located.
Without waiting for Qin Jue to figure it out, Zhang Jichen walked over at this time, still holding the two meatballs up and down.
“Uncle-Master, that person is looking for you again.”
Qin Jue looked up and found that Shen Zhiwen was indeed standing not far away and looking over, but he didn’t dare to approach.
“Didn’t I tell him not to come and find me again?”
Qin Jue’s face darkened. Did the other party think he was joking?
Seeing Qin Jue looking over, Shen Zhiwen couldn’t help but shudder and hurriedly shouted, “Senior, I was just passing by and wanted to see you. I even brought you a gift.”
As he spoke, Shen Zhiwen raised his arm, holding two pots of spirit wine.
Originally, Qin Jue planned to erase Shen Zhiwen’s intelligence, but when he saw the two pots of spirit wine in Shen Zhiwen’s hand, his movements froze and he relented. “Come here.”
Although Qin Jue had just swept away the Archaic Mysteries Sect’s wine cellar a few days ago, the two pots of spirit wine that Shen Zhiwen brought had both reached more than 200 years old. As a spirit wine enthusiast, how could Qin Jue possibly refuse?
Moreover, Shen Zhiwen was a disciple of the Profound Yellow Sect. The taste of the spirit wine they brewed might be different from that of the Archaic Mysteries Sect.
Hearing Qin Jue asking him to go over, Shen Zhiwen was overjoyed and immediately ran forward and said, “I saw that Senior likes to drink, so I took two pots of 270-year-old treasures. I hope Senior likes them.”
Qin Jue expressionlessly received the two pots of wine and took a deep breath. How fragrant!
“Senior, I really didn’t mean to disturb you. I just happened to pass by this place. That’s why I decided to drop by.”
“Many factions have been riled up because there was news that the Wuji Mystic Realm is about to appear. Also, Master felt that this was a good opportunity to train, so he sent me here.”
Shen Zhiwen carefully explained, afraid that Qin Jue would erase his intelligence and turn him into an idiot.
“Wuji Mystic Realm?”
Qin Jue, who was holding a wine pot, was slightly stunned and very puzzled. “What’s this Wuji Mystic Realm?”
“Senior, you don’t know?”
Shen Zhiwen was equally stunned.
Qin Jue really didn’t know. He hadn’t been reading any news on the spirit tablet recently, so he wasn’t clear about what was happening in the outside world. But from Shen Zhiwen’s tone, it seemed that this Wuji Mystic Realm was the reason for the sudden appearance of a large number of cultivators at the foot of the mountain?
