Because the town was close to the black mountain peak, it was called Black Mountain Town. Most of the people in the town were ordinary people. Also, because of the large number of cultivators that had gathered here due to the Wuji Mystic Realm, many of the indigenous people were so frightened that they did not dare to leave their houses. Only some inns and restaurants were forced to open for business and inside, cultivators from all over the world were seated.
Qin Jue and the others crossed the street and entered a restaurant.
“What would you like to eat?”
The shop assistant immediately went forward and asked. Over the past two days, he had received no less than a hundred cultivators and was no longer as afraid as before.
Even so, when he saw Qin Jue, he was still stunned.
Most importantly, compared to the cultivators he had encountered before, Qin Jue’s temperament was simply no different from an immortal’s. Even if this associate was a man and not a woman, he couldn’t help but be charmed by Qin Jue.
“Senior, do you want to eat?”
Shen Zhiwen transmitted his voice.
At their level, they no longer needed to eat. At most, they would only eat to satisfy their appetite.
Qin Jue took a sip of wine and said indifferently.
Hearing this, Shen Zhiwen said in a typical manner, “Serve us some of your signature dishes.”
The shop assistant nodded repeatedly and couldn’t help but steal another glance at Qin Jue before leaving.
The restaurant was divided into three floors. The few of them sat down by a window on the third floor and looked out.
The black mountain peak pierced straight into the sky like a giant pillar that held up the sky. It was exceptionally steep and had no footholds. At the halfway point of the mountain, there seemed to be faint signs of distortion. That was likely to be the entrance to the Wuji Mystic Realm.
Just based on this observation alone, Qin Jue knew that even if the seal was removed, it would be impossible for cultivators below the Earth Stage to enter.
“Master said that the seal is only slightly looser now. It will take at least half a month for the entrance to be completely opened.”
“Half a month?”
Qin Jue frowned. He couldn’t wait that long.
“Eldest Senior Brother, you still haven’t told us your friend’s name.”
A female disciple asked with a smile.
The female disciple’s name was Lin Yue. She had a pretty face and was very attractive. But to be honest, ever since he transmigrated to this world, Qin Jue had never seen many high-level cultivators who were ugly. Apart from those old fellows who were over a hundred years old, most of them were handsome men and beautiful women.
Without waiting for Shen Zhiwen to speak, Qin Jue answered truthfully.
“So it’s Senior Brother Qin Jue.”
“Which sect is Senior Brother Qin Jue from?”
Another female disciple asked.
It couldn’t be helped. Qin Jue was too handsome.
“I’m an itinerant cultivator.”
Naturally, Qin Jue wasn’t about to tell anyone anything about the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
They did not doubt it. After all, if he was a disciple of a large sect, it was impossible for them not to have heard of him.
“Senior Brother Qin Jue, are you interested in joining our Profound Yellow Sect?”
Given that it was one of the Four Major Sects… cough, the second most powerful sect among the Three Major Sects, Lin Yue believed that no itinerant cultivator in this world would refuse her offer.
Lin Yue was speechless.
Beside him, Shen Zhiwen hurriedly interrupted, “Alright, no need to talk about this further. Sen… Brother Qin will not join our Profound Yellow Sect.”
Lin Yue could only choose to give up, but she didn’t expect Qin Jue to refuse.
The other three male disciples looked at each other, also somewhat surprised. They sized up Qin Jue, but they couldn’t tell what his cultivation was at all. There was not even a trace of spirit energy fluctuation.
This proved two possibilities. Either Qin Jue was far stronger than them and was able to conceal his aura, or Qin Jue had used a special method to hide his cultivation.
The three of them simultaneously thought that Qin Jue must have used a special method to conceal his cultivation. After all, they were all late-phase Heaven Stage experts. If Qin Jue was far stronger than them, wouldn’t that mean that he was already a Supreme Stage expert?
Not long after, the food was served and the fragrance filled the air. However, the several disciples of the Profound Yellow Sect didn’t eat. Only Qin Jue ate nonchalantly and drank the spirit wine that Shen Zhiwen had given him.
Unlike the spirit wine of the Archaic Mysteries Sect, the spirit wine brewed by the Profound Yellow Sect was stronger and fiercer, making it extremely enjoyable.
“Eh? Isn’t this Sect Master’s favorite wine, the Furious Red?”
Lin Yue exclaimed after seeing the spirit wine in Qin Jue’s hand.
Qin Jue pondered. So the wine was called Furious Red.
“I gave it to Brother Qin.”
Shen Zhiwen said seriously.
In fact, Shen Zhiwen had stolen these two pots of spirit wine from his master’s wine cellar, but he naturally wouldn’t say it out loud.
Everyone didn’t think too much about it. After all, only Shen Zhiwen was the sect master’s disciple. For all they know, it could be true.
“Senior Brother Shen, there you are.”
Suddenly, a pleasantly surprised voice was heard.
Shen Zhiwen looked in the direction of the voice and saw a black-robed youth rushing over. His hair was combed neatly, and he looked especially spirited.
Shen Zhiwen was at a loss.
“I’m Zhou Yuan, the Zhou Family’s Zhou Yuan.”
The black-robed youth’s face flushed with embarrassment.
Shen Zhiwen frowned slightly and then seemed to remember something. He said in realization, “You’re that Zhou Yuan who was beaten up by Ye Wushuang?”
Can’t we just chat normally?
Shen Zhiwen also realized that he had said something wrong, so he quickly said, “Sorry, I didn’t mean that…”
“Hehe, it’s alright. I did lose to Ye Wushuang.”
The corner of Zhou Yuan’s eyes twitched slightly as he tried to remain nonchalant.
Zhou Yuan came from one of the Six Great Clans, the Zhou Clan, and he was also a leading figure among the younger generation of the Zhou Clan. It was said that on the day of his birth, there had been an abnormal phenomenon and people heard the roars of a dragon.
Therefore, Zhou Yuan was regarded as the hope for the Zhou Clan to rise again, and Zhou Yuan lived up to expectations. He had stepped into the late-phase Heaven Stage in his thirties, and even among the Four Major Sects, he could still be considered a core disciple. However, he was still far from Shen Zhiwen.
There were a few elders following behind Zhou Yuan. They were probably the elders in charge of protecting Zhou Yuan. These elders were also very respectful to Shen Zhiwen, and their words were filled with flattery.
The Zhou Family had always been on good terms with the Profound Yellow Sect, and Shen Zhiwen was also the eldest senior brother of the sect. He was very likely to advance to the Legendary Stage in the future, so they naturally had to try his best to befriend him.
“Haha, it’s good that Brother Zhou understands.”
Shen Zhiwen smiled.
In fact, it wasn’t that Shen Zhiwen was deliberately mocking Zhou Yuan, but he really only remembered this matter regarding Zhou Yuan. Although Zhou Yuan was regarded as the hope of the Zhou Clan’s revival, he simply wasn’t important in Shen Zhiwen’s eyes. After all, the five core disciples who had come with him were all late-phase Heaven Stage. In his eyes, Zhou Yuan was not at all special.
Zhou Yuan :”…”
I don’t understand a fart!
“Senior Brother Shen, no one knows what will happen when the Muji Mystic Realm opens this time. Why don’t we team up?”
Taking a deep breath, Zhou Yuan forced a smile and suggested.
Hearing this, Shen Zhiwen subconsciously looked at Qin Jue on the side and then shook his head to refuse. “Sorry, we don’t have any plans to team up with anyone for the time being.”
