Southern Land, Xuanyi Mountain
“Hu, I finally caught you.”
Bai Ye heaved a sigh of relief as he looked at the frog before him that was enveloped by spirit energy.
In the past month, because of this frog, Bai Ye had been besieged by many elders. If not for his deep cultivation, he would have been killed long ago.
“Yesterday, when I peeked at Elder Zhu bathing, I realized that he was actually wearing a woman’s undergarment. Hahaha.”
“I’ve been too tired from teaching recently. Looks like I need to find time to go to the Thousand Phoenix Pavilion at the foot of the mountain to relax.”
The frog didn’t seem to know that it was in danger, and it continued to repeat what it had just learned.
If not for this frog, Bai Ye probably would not have known that there were so many strange people inside the sect!
“I’m afraid I’m the only normal person in this sect.” Bai Ye sighed.
“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 :”…”
This damned frog must not be left alive. He had to kill it!
Just as Bai Ye was about to kill the frog, Qin Jue suddenly walked in from outside.
“Senior Brother, what do you think this is?
Bai Ye turned around and was slightly stunned. “Essence Soul?”
“That’s right.” Qin Jue smiled.
“Whose Essence Soul is it?”
Bai Ye frowned. There shouldn’t be any high-level cultivators coming to court death recently.
“I think his name is Wuji Saint.”
Bai Ye :”…”
“Are you talking about that Wuji Saint who appeared on the news recently?”
“So Senior Brother knows him.”
“Of course. It was reported on the Spiritnet 10 days ago.” Bai Ye pursed his lips. “In other words, you went to the Wuji Mystic Realm?”
In fact, Bai Ye had already known about the Wuji Mystic Realm, but he had no intention of participating. Although he was at the peak of the Heaven Stage and was very curious about new and interesting things, in order to live a little longer, it was best for him to obediently stay in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
It was also because of this thought that Xuanyi Mountain Sect had not expanded to the outside world.
“Yeah, I went to get some spirit wine.”
Qin Jue took out a pot of spirit wine and said without hiding anything.
“Then how did you get his Essence Soul? Wasn’t the Wuji Saint already dead?”
“No, the Wuji Saint isn’t dead yet. His Essence Soul had been fused with the Wuji Mystic Realm.”
Qin Jue explained, “He wanted to devour the cultivators who entered the Wuji Mystic Realm and use it to revive, so I destroyed the place. I didn’t expect him to forcefully escape, so I captured him and brought him back.”
“Sounds like a lot of interesting things happened.”
Bai Ye listened with relish. “But why did you bring him back?”
“Didn’t you want to use Essence Soul to refine pills last time? This is the Essence Soul of a Saint Stage expert.” Qin Jue smiled.
Hearing this, Bai Ye’s eyes lit up. “You want to give him to me for pill refining?”
“I’ve already sealed his spirit energy. You can use it anytime.”
“Hahaha, thank you, Junior Brother.”
Bai Ye was overjoyed and was about to rush up to hug Qin Jue until he saw Qin Jue’s raised fist. He immediately stopped awkwardly and said, “Don’t worry Junior Brother, I definitely won’t disappoint you. Give me one day, and in one day, I will absolutely refine a peerless medicinal pill!”
Bai Ye’s words were sonorous and powerful, filled with confidence. If one didn’t know better, they would think that he was really a pill refinement master.
Qin Jue rolled his eyes speechlessly. He didn’t know how many times he had heard similar words, but up until now, Bai Ye had yet to refine any normal pill.
“What? You’re using me to refine pills?!”
After listening to their conversation, the expression of the Wuji Saint in the green light changed drastically. He immediately struggled frantically to escape, but his spirit energy had already been sealed by Qin Jue. With his current state, not to mention a Heaven Stage expert, he wouldn’t even be able to fight a Yellow Stage cultivator. So how could he possibly escape from Bai Ye’s hands?
“Go ahead and scream. No one will care even if you scream your throat out.”
Taking the green light from Qin Jue’s hand, Bai Ye revealed an extremely evil smile. Two days ago, when he was flipping through the pill refining books, he had just learned a new pill refining technique that he could use to test it on this Essence Soul.
Bai Ye was a little excited just thinking about the Essence Soul of a Saint Stage expert.
After handing the Wuji Saint to Bai Ye, Qin Jue returned to his cliff. As for what happened to Shen Zhiwen, Qin Jue didn’t care at all.
He wasn’t familiar with Shen Zhiwen, and after this incident, as long as Shen Zhiwen was smart enough, he wouldn’t come to him again. Otherwise, Qin Jue wouldn’t mind directly erasing Shen Zhiwen’s intelligence.
When Qin Jue returned to the courtyard, the girl had already left and the sky had darkened.
Taking out a few fruit trees that he had brought out from the Wuji Mystic Realm, Qin Jue planted one by the blue stone, and the rest in the courtyard. These fruit trees were all spirit plants above the fourth level. As soon as they were buried, they took root and emitted a faint spirit qi.
With these few spirit herbs, he believed that it wouldn’t be long before the surrounding spirit qi became even richer.
By the time Qin Jue finished his work, night had quietly fallen. The silver moon was like a hook that hung on the horizon. Everything seemed exceptionally calm.
Originally, Qin Jue had planned to pour a few drops of thousand-year-old spirit wine for Yun Xi, but after thinking about it, with Yun Xi’s current cultivation, it was simply impossible for it to withstand the spirit qi contained in the wine, so he could only choose to give it up.
“Little Qing, it’s been a while since I’ve chatted with you.”
Qin Jue leaned against the blue stone and took a sip of wine as he said faintly.
“Uh… I don’t think there’s anything to say. Forget it, let’s continue drinking.”
Just as Qin Jue was drunk and about to fall asleep, a deafening bang suddenly came from the distance, and the entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect shook violently.
Qin Jue opened his eyes and saw a ball of black smoke rising from the direction of the main hall. He didn’t need to think to know that Bai Ye’s furnace had definitely exploded again, but this time, the black smoke didn’t turn into a skull.
Sighing helplessly, Qin Jue stood up and walked towards the main hall, wanting to see what Bai Ye had done this time.
Outside the main hall, Bai Ye was standing there cleanly without a trace of dust on his body. Clearly, he had already run out before the furnace exploded.
Seeing Qin Jue coming over, Bai Ye’s expression was slightly awkward.
“Don’t tell me that the one who blew up the furnace just now was the Wuji Saint’s Essence Soul.”
Qin Jue :”…”
Didn’t you say that you would definitely be able to refine a peerless medicinal pill within a day’s time? It hasn’t even been half a day, right?
“However, I successfully condensed the pill before the furnace exploded and took it out.”
Bai Ye opened his palm, and indeed, there was a dark green medicinal pill lying inside.
“Is this thing safe to eat?”
Qin Jue’s face darkened.
“I don’t know.”
Bai Ye shook his head.
“But I’ve already found an experimental subject.”
As he spoke, Bai Ye opened his other palm, revealing a frog lying on it.
