Qin Jue recognized Hu Hun and frowned. “Didn’t I already give you a fruit? Why are you still pestering me?”
Hu Hun: “???”
I want a fruit tree, not a fruit!
And that one was even bitten by you!
“Brother Qin is my friend. It’s best that you don’t cause trouble for him again. Otherwise, don’t blame me for being impolite.”
Shen Zhiwen threw away his sword and said coldly.
In front of a peak Heaven Stage expert like Shen Zhiwen, Hu Hun was like a child without the ability to fight back.
In fact, although Shen Zhiwen looked fierce, he had actually saved Hu Hun. If that sword had pierced Qin Jue just now, he would be dead by now.
However, Hu Hun didn’t know this. He fiercely looked at Qin Jue, then picked up the long sword on the ground and slipped away. With Shen Zhiwen here, he obviously couldn’t do anything to Qin Jue.
In the distance, several elders of the Yin Family were standing in the crowd with extremely complicated expressions. They had originally planned to attack together after discovering Qin Jue. After all, Qin Jue had killed their young master.
However, after witnessing the scene just now, they forcefully endured it.
This person was actually the eldest senior brother’s friend. No wonder he had a Supreme Stage spirit artifact!
Until now, these elders of the Yin Clan still believed that Qin Jue had used a defensive Supreme Stage spirit artifact, which was why Yin Long and another elder had been severely injured by the backlash and died.
After dealing with Hu Hun, Shen Zhiwen turned around and said, “Senior, with this layer of poisonous gas blocking us, there’s no way for us to get out at all.”
“Ah? Are you talking about this layer of green gas? This thing can kill?”
Qin Jue pointed at the green gas, very puzzled.
Shen Zhiwen :”…”
At this time, the entire Wuji Mystic Realm suddenly shook. An incomparable aura rose up, as if some will was gradually waking up. All the cultivators present found it hard to breathe.
“What a powerful aura!”
“Could there be Supreme Stage experts in the Wuji Mystic Realm?”
Sensing this aura, everyone was shocked. This aura had already far surpassed the scope of Heaven Stage. It was so powerful that they almost didn’t dare to imagine it!
At the same time, the green fog outside the ruins rippled. Then, under everyone’s shocked gazes, a huge human face was condensed from the gas.
“What’s going on?”
“Wait, I’ve read about this in the ancient books. This… this seems to be the Wuji Saint!”
“Wuji Saint? Isn’t he already dead?”
Are you kidding me?
Upon hearing this, all the cultivators exploded. The Wuji Saint had clearly fallen for hundreds of years. How could he have appeared here?
“This face… does indeed look like the Wuji Saint in the ancient books.”
Shen Zhiwen said solemnly.
“What? Eldest Senior Brother, are you sure?”
Without waiting for Shen Zhiwen’s reply, the big face appearing from green gas suddenly opened its eyes, flashing with a strange light.
“Hahaha, I didn’t expect there to be so many people. This should be enough for me to revive.”
The ‘Wuji Saint’ opened his mouth and let out a deafening laughter.
“Who are you?” Ye Wushuang stepped forward and questioned.
The Wuji Saint lowered his head slightly and looked down at Ye Wushuang. “Heaven Secrets Technique”? You’re a disciple of the Archaic Mysteries Sect?”
Hearing this, Ye Wushuang’s expression changed slightly. “How do you know about the Heaven Secrets Technique?”
The “Heaven Secrets Technique” was the current core cultivation technique of the Archaic Mysteries Sect. Only core disciples were qualified to cultivate it.
“Haha, where’s Tian Yanzi?”
The Wuji Saint responded with a question.
Ye Wushuang said seriously, “Tian Yanzi is the first sect master of our Archaic Mysteries Sect. He passed away six hundred years ago.”
“I can’t believe that little fellow hasn’t broken through to the Legendary Stage even until his death. Hahaha.”
“Could it be that you know the first sect master of the Archaic Mysteries Sect?”
“More than that. If not for my guidance, he wouldn’t have been able to advance to the Legendary Stage,” the Wuji Saint said proudly.
“Are you really the Wuji Saint?” Ye Wushuang asked in disbelief.
“Then can Senior help us leave this place?” Ye Wushuang revealed a look of joy.
“Help you leave? Hahahaha.”
The Wuji Saint threw his head back and laughed as if he had heard the funniest joke in the world. Then, he changed the topic and said sinisterly, “I have planned for a thousand years to establish this mystic realm to lure you idiots in. How could I let you leave?”
“It’s a pity that for some reason, the seal was removed half a month in advance, causing it to be incomplete. But it’s alright. As long as I devour you, I can still be revived.”
“Tsk tsk, so many young Heaven Stage cultivators. They can at least increase my lifespan by 300 years.”
As soon as he said this, everyone turned pale with fright. It turned out that from the very beginning, they had been treated as fertilizer by this Wuji Saint!
And the so-called Wuji Mystic Realm was actually a trap!
“How could you do this?”
Ye Wushuang was dumbfounded.
“Fool, the strong prey on the weak. Survival of the fittest. Since you are a disciple of the Archaic Mysteries Sect, for the sake of an old friend, I’ll start with you.”
As he spoke, the Wuji Saint spat out a mouthful of green gas that swept towards Ye Wushuang.
As expected of one of the twins of the Archaic Mysteries Sect, Ye Wushuang retreated almost at the instant the Wuji Saint attacked. The green gas instantly swept past the place where he was standing and dodged it.
“Interesting. You actually dodged it.”
Wuji Saint said with interest, “But you won’t be so lucky next time.”
Before he finished his sentence, specks of golden light suddenly appeared around the ruined palace. It was heavy and floating, like a galaxy hanging upside down. It was extremely gorgeous. Then, this golden light quickly rose and formed a light screen that confronted the green fog.
A trace of surprise flashed across the Wuji Saint’s huge face. When these golden lights appeared, his attack was blocked out of the ruined palace!
“Who is it?!”
“No need to search. I’m over here.”
At this moment, Qin Jue was covered in golden light as he slowly rose into the sky. Strange, auspicious phenomenons appeared behind him one after another, making it seem as if an immortal had arrived.
“Who are you?”
The Wuji Saint said warily, “I clearly set up a restriction outside. Cultivators who have surpassed the Heaven Stage can’t enter.”
“That thing is useless against me.”
Qin Jue shrugged his shoulders and raised his hand to punch. He had no interest in talking nonsense with a person who had been dead for several hundred years.
Golden light surged and turned into a dazzling pillar of light that shot out, instantly submerging the Wuji Saint. Wherever it passed, space would constantly shatter, forming pitch-black cracks. Even the Wuji Mystic Realm could not withstand it and almost collapsed.
In an instant, the world turned golden. All things shone brilliantly, and all living beings fell silent.
When the golden light dissipated, the Wuji Saint had already disappeared. The green fog had also been cut off from the middle, extending all the way to the end of the horizon. Everyone was shocked.
“Is… he dead?”
Although he had already seen the scene of Qin Jue defending against thousands of enemies, Shen Zhiwen still found it somewhat unbelievable.
Even Shen Zhiwen was like this, let alone others.
Especially Hu Hun and the several Yin Family elders who had wanted to provoke Qin Jue, their eyes almost popped out.
“So powerful!” Ye Wushuang was dumbfounded.
“This figure seems to be somewhat similar to the mysterious expert who appeared on the plains back then.”
Su Yan muttered to himself.
Unexpectedly, the Wuji Saint was not dead. The green fog gathered again and quickly condensed into a huge human face. “I have already fused with this mystic realm. You can’t kill me.”
“It’s my turn now.”
